We are Losing our Freedoms and Lands: The Responsibility of the US Citizen #MakeDCListen

There is enough already “known” that someone could just quote the great minds in life to understand the trouble we are in as a nation.  And that is what we are going to do in this article, we hope you find it refreshing enough to share.  Subscribe Now 

Have we  lost our consciousness and ability to be responsible in the USA?  Yes, some have. Before the 1980s even arrived more people received government checks than were workers in the private sector. Is this the America you want to live in? 

“Cherish, therefore, the spirit of our people, and keep alive their attentionIf once they become inattentive to the public affairs, you and I, and Congress and Assemblies, judges and governors, shall all become wolves. It seems to be the law of our general nature.” - Thomas Jefferson (Letter to Edward Carrington January 16, 1787)

“Need I infer, that it is the duty of every citizen to use his best and most unremitting endeavours for preserving it [the Constitution] pure, healthful, and vigorous? For the accomplishment of this great purpose, the exertions of no one citizen are unimportant. Let no one, therefore harbour, for a moment, the mean idea, that he is and can be of no value to his country: let the contrary manly impres­sion animate his soul. Every one can, at many times, perform, to the state, useful services; and he, who steadily pursues the road of patriotism, has the most inviting prospect of being able, at some times, to perform eminent ones.” -James Wilson (Signer of The  Declaration of Independence and the Constitution)

And the insight of those who are paying attention come to light if we are willing to research.  Listen with the scales removed from your ears so that you can hear what Albert Jay Nock clearly states in 1943 from his book “Memoirs of a Superfluous Man”

“… closer centralization; a steadily growing bureaucracy; State power and faith in State power increasing; social power and faith in social power diminishing; the State absorbing a continually larger proportion of the national income; production languishing; the State in consequence read more

Congressmen Want to Bring Obama to Court for Not Faithfully Executing Laws

God bless Tom Rice, we here at PBN hope this spirit of freedom persists in the American people up through and beyond the upcoming midterm elections. We’ll be doing our part here at PBN to bring you the truth in all news, will you be doing your political part? –PBN

Congressman Tom Rice of South Carolina, a Republican, is sponsoring a resolution in the House of Representatives that would, if adopted, direct the legislative body “to bring a civil action for declaratory or injunctive relief to challenge certain policies and actions taken by the executive branch.” In other words, Rep. Rice wants to take President Obama to court for not faithfully executing the laws.

“President Obama has adopted a practice of picking and choosing which laws he wants to enforce. In most cases, his laws of choice conveniently coincide with his Administration’s political agenda. Our Founding Fathers created the Executive Branch to implement and enforce the laws written by Congress and vested this power in the President.  However, President Obama has chosen to ignore some of the laws written by Congress and implemented by preceding Presidents,” Rice wrote in a letter to fellow House members to ask them to co-sponsor this resolution.

“This resolution allows the House of Representatives to bring legal action against the Executive Branch and challenge recent read more

Emails Leaked by Senate Majority Leader’s office shows evidence of partnership between Reid and Boehner

Reids Office Leaks Boehner Emails

It looks like bipartisanship is as alive as ever on Capitol Hill; just maybe not the kind the pundits are always calling for. Even though it’s clear that Reid’s office did this just to attack Boehner, it still is a fascinating look at the inner workings of the political parties of the United States of America. It’s almost like both parties are nigh indistinguishable from one another. Leave it to politicians to have the appearance of a feud while actually working together.

Americans, if you truly believe that this nation is being destroyed with our current leadership, prove it next November. It will likely be your last chance. –PBN

HOUSE REJECTS OBAMA POLICY ON IMMIGRANT TEENS

WASHINGTON (AP) — The GOP-controlled House voted Thursday to reject President Barack Obama’s policy to end deportation of hundreds of thousands of immigrants in the country illegally who were brought to the United States as children.

The 224-201 vote broke along party lines and comes as Congress is working on overhauling the much-criticized U.S. immigration system. The measure came as the House completed action on the Department of Homeland Security spending bill.

Obama announced a program in June 2012 that puts off deportation for many people brought here as children. Applicants for the reprieve must have arrived before they turned 16, be younger than 31 now, be high school graduates or in school, or have served in the military. They can’t have a serious criminal record.

Secret Recording: Feds taped CT House Minority leader Lawrence Cafero who said ‘No’ to a bribe

By CHRIS BOSAK

Please share this post of an overtly vile
government high on their own power and hell bent on destroying any valee call by the vast majority of American citizens. Values like marriage, life, freedom, liberty, decency and faith in the USA.

Share this and contact your reps, this not okay. -PBN

NORWALK — House Minority Leader Lawrence Cafero Jr. said he is proud of the actions of himself and his staff after a video emerged that showed a union official allegedly attempting to place $5,000 into a refrigerator in Cafero’s legislative office during an FBI sting.

The video was shown Thursday during the federal trial in U.S. District Court in New Haven against a campaign aide to former state House Speaker Chris Donovan. In testimony, Harry Ray Soucy, a former Department of Correction officer and union official, said he left $5,000 in cash in Cafero’s office, but that the money was returned.

Cafero told The Hour on Friday that Soucy asked for a cold drink and went to the refrigerator and placed an envelop inside. Cafero said he told Soucy that is not the way donations are made and demanded that Soucy take the envelop outside of the legislative office and give it to a Republican House staff member. When the staff member returned and Cafero discovered it was $5,000 in cash, Cafero made the staffer drive to a restaurant in Waterbury to return the money. Cafero said the staff member missed a law school class in order to return the money that day. Cafero said he also instructed the staff member to send an e-mail to Soucy explaining the proper way to make a contribution to a Republican committee.

The video, which is now on YouTube and The Hour’s website, was filmed by an FBI informant and Soucy was being used to try to catch legislators in the act of receiving bribes, according to Cafero. The video, both visually and auditorily, is rather unclear, but at one point Cafero is heard saying: “No, no, no.”

“I’m very proud of my staff and proud that we did the right thing,” Cafero said. “I take very seriously the proper procedure. I take solace in the fact that the FBI said I did nothing wrong and my staff is not a target of investigation. They thanked me for my cooperation.”

Soucy later sent Cafero five $1,000 checks. The FBI told Cafero he could keep that money for a Republican committee, but Cafero returned that money as well.

“I’m not sure if that money is tainted,” Cafero said. “I told them (FBI), with all due respect, I can not accept any check of a tainted origin.”

Cafero may have been given the OK by the FBI, but the entire situation left a bad taste in his mouth.

“It’s ugly and seedy what went on,” he said. “It’s a disgusting and upsetting experience.”

The meeting with Soucy took place on March 14, 2012.

Soucy visited Cafero’s office under the guise of discussing a tax potentially levied on roll-your-own cigarette establishments. Cafero knew Soucy previously as a union leader and Department of Correction officer.

Soucy brought two other men with him to the meeting and introduced them as being in the roll-your-own cigarette industry.

Cafero questioned Soucy why a corrections officer would want to discuss the topic and Soucy said he was thinking of opening a roll-your-own business, according to Cafero.

After the meeting, Soucy asked Cafero if he had anything to drink and walked toward the refrigerator.

Cafero said Soucy then told him that “my guys” want to make a contribution to a Republican Political Action Committee, then proceeded to try to put an envelop in the refrigerator.

Cafero stopped him and told him to meet one of his staff members across the street as contributions may not be accepted in the legislative office.

Cafero assumed Soucy meant fellow corrections officers when Soucy said “my guys.”

He did not think the contribution was on behalf of the roll-your-own cigarette lobby.

“I thought it was a very clumsy way to try to make a contribution,” he said.

Cafero said Soucy’s testimony that he left $5,000 in Cafero’s refrigerator is an “absolute lie.

Impeaching Obama Gains Steam

impeach.obama.mko.

Let the president be duly warned. Rep. Walter B. Jones Jr., R-N.C., has introduced a resolution declaring that should the president use offensive military force without authorization of an act of Congress, “it is the sense of Congress” that such an act would be “an impeachable high crime and misdemeanor.”

120213obama2

Specifically, Article I, Section 8, of the Constitution reserves for Congress alone the power to declare war, a restriction that has been sorely tested in recent years, including Obama’s authorization of military force in Libya.

In an exclusive WND column, former U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo claims that Jones introduced his House Concurrent Resolution 107 in response to startling recent comments from Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta.

“This week it was Secretary of Defense Panetta’s declaration before the Senate Armed Services Committee that he and President Obama look not to the Congress for authorization to bomb Syria but to NATO and the United Nations,” Tancredo writes. “This led to Rep. Walter Jones, R-N.C., introducing an official resolution calling for impeachment should Obama take offensive action based on Panetta’s policy statement, because it would violate the Constitution.”

In response to questions from Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., over who determines the proper and legal use of the U.S. military, Panetta said, “Our goal would be to seek international permission and we would … come to the Congress and inform you and determine how best to approach this, whether or not we would want to get permission from the Congress – I think those are issues we would have to discuss as we decide what to do here.”“Well, I’m almost breathless about that,” Sessions responded, “because what I heard you say is, ‘We’re going to seek international approval, and then we’ll come and tell the Congress what we might do, and we might seek congressional approval.’ And I just want to say to you that’s a big [deal].”

Asked again what was the legal basis for U.S. military force, Panetta suggested a NATO coalition or U.N. resolution.

Sessions was dumbfounded by the answer.

“Well, I’m all for having international support, but I’m really baffled by the idea that somehow an international assembly provides a legal basis for the United States military to be deployed in combat,” Sessions said. “They can provide no legal authority. The only legal authority that’s required to deploy the United States military is of the Congress and the president and the law and the Constitution.”

The exchange itself can be seen below:

The full wording of H. Con. Res. 107, which is currently referred to the House Committee on the Judiciary, is as follows:

Expressing the sense of Congress that the use of offensive military force by a president without prior and clear authorization of an act of Congress constitutes an impeachable high crime and misdemeanor under Article II, Section 4 of the Constitution.

Whereas the cornerstone of the Republic is honoring Congress’s exclusive power to declare war under article I, section 8, clause 11 of the Constitution: Now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), That it is the sense of Congress that, except in response to an actual or imminent attack against the territory of the United States, the use of offensive military force by a president without prior and clear authorization of an act of Congress violates Congress’s exclusive power to declare war under Article I, Section 8, clause 11 of the Constitution and therefore constitutes an impeachable high crime and misdemeanor under Article II, Section 4 of the Constitution.

And that is that the vast majority of Americans do not trust any form of Government to be able to protect them. We also realize that making thes guns black market just ups the ante for decent law abiding citizens thereby giving the criminal element a peek at our hand. But will it happen?  We say, if and or when the government tries to take the law abiding citizens guns, it will be a blood bath. Molon Labe. -PBN

Pelosi’s Aides Digitally Inserted Images of Four Absent Members Into Photograph

“Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much.” Luke 16:10
This is so wrong on so many levels. Why would she fake an alibi for a colleague, why would she not be transparent? How could anyone be proud of distorting history? Easy. Just like everyone of her Democratic fiendish friends, they are always ready to revise history. Obama has been famous for inserting his name in the White House historical archive section under past Presidents and their accomplishments. What a sad man. -PBN

WASHINGTON (AP) — For House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, the swearing-in of a record number of Democratic women was a historic moment worth a photograph. And, she decided, history needed a little digital help.

After only 57 of the 61 congresswomen showed up in time for the photo scheduled Thursday on the Capitol’s steps, Pelosi’s aides digitally inserted images of the four absent members into the photograph. She then had the altered image posted on her Flickr photo-sharing site.

Journalists and historians frown on such altered views of history. On Friday, Pelosi defended the photo.

“It was an accurate historical record of who the Democratic women of Congress are,” Pelosi said at a news conference. “It also is an accurate record that it was freezing cold and our members had been waiting a long time for everyone to arrive and … had to get back into the building to greet constituents, family members, to get ready to go to the floor. It wasn’t like they had the rest of the day to stand there.”

Pelosi said the photo reflected the nation’s diversity because it included women from every community and religious faith.

“So we were pretty excited about it,” she said. “We got a lot of response back from the country, and one I loved was when they said, ‘Can the women in Congress hear the people cheering across the country?’”

Bad Fiscal Cliff Bill: Payroll Tax Increase Hits Nearly Every Wage Earner

http://www.socialsecurityinsider.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/10/istock_000006459776xsmall.jpgThis may be a brief rally for the markets, but a long term problem for our freedom and financial future. The GOP failed us. Moderates and RINOs must be tossed out. No quarter given, no conversation, no compromises. The USA is NOT Europe and we will not let our elected official act like Europeans. We will take our country back, we will stand for and with our Constitution. 

WASHINGTON- While the tax package that Congress passed New Year’s Day will protect 99 percent of Americans from an income tax increase, most of them will still end up paying more federal taxes in 2013.

That’s because the legislation did nothing to prevent a temporary reduction in the Social Security payroll tax from expiring. In 2012, that 2-percentage-point cut in the payroll tax was worth about $1,000 to a worker making $50,000 a year. read more

Congressman Leahy: An Evil Man Selling Visas to Highest Bidder. Welcome Jihadists!!

http://images.politico.com/global/news/090719_leahy_ap_297.jpg

The Bill – Investors must put up $1 million for a visa, but if they invest in a rural area or one with high unemployment, that is reduced to $500,000. Based on a deal forged by Leahy it was in stasis because President Bush said it was “riddled with corruption”. As soon Barack Obama came into office, he must have said  it was good because it was full of corruption.

Development is good, but not at the risk of letting jihadists buy their access into the USA.

The detestable and despicable Patrick Leahy (picture right) has Visas For Sale – Our Founding forefathers did not want to create an elitist society. The truth is, that is just what the left want, a society were workers and makers provide for them and the users and takers. USA, it is truly time to put our foot down. Unfathomable that Leahy could be a successor to the obama “throne” after Biden and Boehner as president pro tem.

We think that there may be more than is openly shared about Mr. Leahy’s finances as well. Based on congressional financial disclosure forms and calculations made available by OpenSecrets.org – The Center for Responsive Politics, Leahy’s net worth as of 2010 was estimated between $49,007 and $210,000. That averages to $129,503.50, which is lower than the average net worth of Democratic Senators in 2010 of $19,383,524.00. read more
