President Trump should insist GOP leaders to allow Americans, and especially Republicans, to have political input on a new HealthCare plan. This is the equivalent to a ‘Republican Primary’ election.
Offer for a national TV ‘PRIMETIME’ debate with Sen. Ted Cruz’s HealthCare v. the Senate and House versions of our Moderate Capito Hill GOP leaders. Americans and specifically Conservatives deserve to be allowed to see our/their plans.
““Currently, for a variety of reasons, we are not ready to vote for this bill, but we are open to negotiation and obtaining more information before it is brought to the floor," Cruz said in a joint statement with U.S. Sens. Rand Paul of Kentucky, Mike Lee of Utah and Ron Johnson of Wisconsin.”
Why does the Moderate Capitol Hill Republican Party leaders refuse to either offer Sen. Ted Cruz’s ‘Repeal and Replace’ of ObamaCare?
Americans deserve better. President Trump, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan should offer for a TV ‘debate’ in ‘PRIMETIME’. Allow Americans to have input. A few GOP Moderate leaders, behind closed doors, should not be making the decision as to what will be allowed on to vote in the Senate and/or in the House.
You may remember it was Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell who allowed the so-called Ominous Budget 2015 to be voted on, and whereas Sen. Mitch McConnell cut a ‘hidden’ financial deal with President Obama and Democrat Senate Majority Leader, Harry M. Reid for Kentucky to get millions of dollars for himself; over the entire American budgetary system.
I could use some help here. Does the President still hope to get a full repeal of Obamacare during this Congressional session? Or, more likely, will he be satisfied just to get the revised AHCA (only) bill passed?
Tonight, at the 100 day rally in Harrisburg, President Trump asked Pennsylvania Congressmen Mike Kelly and Tom Marino to help him get a healthcare bill passed very, very soon. Presumably, he was referring to the revised AHCA bill. The bill altered with Rand Paul's help for the approval of the Freedom Caucus. Paul Ryan says he wants to get AHCA passed as soon as he has the votes.
But, Trump said "repeal & replace" at least three times at the rally. So, I might presume that the President wants to eliminate Obamacare in large chunks. Revised AHCA, being the biggest chunk, eliminating the five Obamacare Mandates up front. Or, is it the case that the President still hopes to achieve a full repeal of Obamacare during this session?
What do you make of this slight contradiction? What have you heard?
It was June, 2014at the Virginia State Convention when conservatives ousted House Majority Leader, Eric Cantor from his US HouseGOP leadership. There was a message delivered; however, most Capitol Hill leaders failed to catch on and continued to ignore it.
At that time, and even today, moderate GOP Washington leaders continue to reject ‘We the People’ on critical issues including stopping ‘illegal’ immigration, repeal ObamaCare, stop the ‘out-of-control’ deficit spending, and others.
Social Security recipients continue with near -$0- inflationary incomes forseniors’ while Capitol Hill legislators collect inflated incomes.
Republican Party Senators and Representatives make campaign promises to get their votes; then forget their promises after the elections.
‘We the People’ are becoming angry at those on Capitol Hill who are ignoring or forgetting promises as committed.
Capitol Hill Republican leaders are operating on the American Health Care Act Health Care, just like Democrat leaders did in year 2009 on ObamaCare, as they fail to provide details on the AHCA legislation before the votes are casts.
After faithful campaign promises to repeal ObamaCare, an overwhelming majority of Capitol Hill Republican legislators continue to follow Capitol Hill GOP leaders. These GOP leaders refuse to permit a vote on a cleaner and better AHCA legislation plan as offered by conservatives.
Capitol Hill GOP leaders continue to reject ‘We the Peoples’ ideas while supporting their own personal political agendas.
Would Rep. Paul Ryan set-up President Trump on the American Health Care Act? Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX-1) says the proposed legislation is a lie. “I think the President’s being set up for failure,” added Gohmert, “and I know people are anxious just to get this bill passed.”
Gohmert told TheBlaze., “I would love it if Democrats recognized that Obamacare was a problem and it caused them the loss of a majority and it caused them losses in statehouses all over the place. I would love for them to recognize that so we could repeal it in a bipartisan manner.”
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH-4) says, “Our job is to … do what we told the American people we were going to do when they gave us the privilege to serve, and this bill doesn’t do that. This bill doesn’t repeal Obamacare, and that fundamentally is why we’re opposed to it. And unless it changes I do not see the votes there to pass this legislation.
Former Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC) of the Heritage Foundation says, “As a broad spectrum of conservative policy experts have been explaining for weeks, the House health care bill was a perfect marriage of bad policy, bad process and bad politics. Since the day it was introduced, this was presented as a false choice of this bill or nothing, and that strategy was proven very wrong.”
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) are conservatives, among others, who are offering alternate Health Care plans.
Sen. Ted Cruz offers new legislation to repeal ObamaCare and pass a ‘TRUE’ conservative version of the ‘Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act’ for ‘We the People’.
Another idea is to merge the Veterans Administration Health Care into the Medicare Health Care system. This would provide immediate, professional, and local services to our earned veterans.
Republicans must consider electing new fresh and honorable conservatives and their ideas representing ‘We the People’ and America in 2018. 2018 Primary Elections may be the year when Republicans clamp down on candidates who make promises; only in returning to Washington and ‘continue as the usual’.
It is imperative for Capitol Hill Republicans to become resolute in repealing ObamaCare and starting over with a new Health Care plan; perhaps, replace our Health Care System similar to the former Medicare and Medicaid Health Care system in protecting our citizens.
Capitol Hill majority leaders must invite conservatives in showing respect to ‘We the People’; who symbolize the conduit of the Republican Party.
Just perused Sanford's HR 1072 and Rand Paul's S 222.
Almost identical bills in House and Senate, they totally repeal Obamacare.
They introduce: HSA Health Savings Accounts
Small business associations for the purpose of obtaining healthcare group rates
Medicaid would be administered by the states
Some amendments should be added at last minute for women's issues like the Ryan plan
Freedom Caucus, the Republican conservative group who didn't like Ryan's bill, likes these. If Ryan's ego doesn't interfere, they are better plans. SPEAKER RYAN MUST IMMEDIATELY SCHEDULE THESE BILLS FOR VOTE. IF HE DOESN'T, THEN TRUMP HAS GIVEN HIM ENOUGH ROPE TO HANG HIMSELF.
Didn't see anything about defunding Planned Parenthood but Diane Black's HR 354 with 139 co-sponsors still has to be voted on.
National Movement Moves under Press Radar for Presidential Coalition 2016
FEARTURE EDITORIAL: The Post & EmailA growing sentiment exists among Americans that is swelling nationally. More Americans are awakening to the facts that neither the Republican nor the Democratic Party is really taking a stand for the Constitution of the United States. The blatant disrespect for the Supreme Law of the Land is not going unnoticed by Americans.
The politicians in the arena of considerations as candidates, or potential candidates for President 2016, have been flexing their muscles a little bit lately. Paul Ryan was featured as potentially becoming the strongest member of Congress with the retirement of Michigan Representative Dave Camp.
Senator Rand Paul recently made headlines in building up a 50 state national network that could potentially be a vehicle in the race for President in 2016.
Unnoticed but equally formidable is the potential for an Independent Candidate especially one who actually has a record of taking a stand for the Constitution. With the biggest national security threat going unnoticed by main-stream candidates Americans are finding that their main-stream candidates are easily thrown into the Misprision of felony busObama is driving in actually working from their pulpits to keep Obama's fraudulent identity covered up.
Cody Robert Judy has distinguished himself over the last 8 years in Presidential Politics running against all odds. As the Obama fraudulent long form birth certificate, mis-matched social security number, phony draft registration, closed foreign-student college registration status, self reported author essay all testifying against Obama's qualification for the Office of the President as a "natural born citizen" are ignored and covered up by mainstream candidates, their actions are not going unnoticed.
Aligning and arming himself with the truth of the principles of the qualifications of the Office of the President Cody has also distinguished himself as the only candidate in America in 2008 and 2012 to hold both Sen. John McCain and Sen. Barack Obama responsible in Court Records reaching into the United States Supreme Court in Judy v. Obama 12-5276.
According to law there has never been any doubt for those meeting the two prong test 'born in the U.S. to Citizen parents', and Cody says we are reaping the rewards now of the cover up created with Sen. John McCain's request for his fellow Senators Hillary Clinton and Sen. Barack Obama/Soetoro to co-sponsor non-binding senate resolution 511, officially recognizing Sen. McCain was not born in the U.S., and knew he failed the test of qualification for the Office of President.
Of course Sen. Barack Obama knew he would have his clock cleaned on the principle established for the Office of the President if he didn't have a needle and thread suing up Republican's mouths and Sen. Res. 511 did just that, creating a wide spread and saturated clothe in the political arena of a mis-prision of felony throughout those who actually hold offices or have held offices within the Government of the United States.
Cody as a candidate for President within the Democratic Party in 2012 reported this to Georgia Attorney General and the Georgia Courts with the professional evidences of conclusion held in Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s Cold Case PosseMarch 2nd,2012, the day after the release of the report.
Defending the Constitution's very simple request for a natural born citizen in the Office of the President, Cody asks you to consider if your Candidate for President is unwilling to defend, protect, and preserve this simple line that holds so much power and sway in the qualifications for President, how much easier is it for them to neglect other parts of the Constitution that have your individual Civil Rights at stake?
Clearly with the over-reach of Government spying and the 24 crawling scandals coming out of this administration thus far, the largest rooting itself directly to Obama's handing out his long form fabrication at the White House Press Core room, one can easily conclude that something is amiss with all the other candidates in collaboration with Obama's cover-ups.
Both Republican Candidates as well as Democratic Candidates have the stink of Obama's fraud upon their feet that they haven't wiped off in the duty to report these dangerous circumstances to the public and to the proper authorities. Traditionally in America, presidential candidates have come from some other elected office including Mayors, Governors, U.S. Representatives, U.S. Senators, though being elected to some other office is certainly not a requirement for becoming President of the United States. Being a 'natural born citizen' is a requirement as well as being over 35 years of age. With Obama's massive cover-up glued to heels of so many in office, we are seeing again the wisdom of the Constitution's declarations before our eyes.
With the Sheriff Kits being distributed to all Congress, Senators, Governors, and Mayors and available to the public the window is narrowing on those elected in their offices at this time not being subjects of misprision of felony. A federal grand jury has been convened to probe Governor Chris Christie's involvement role in bridgegate under the authority of New Jersey's Federal Attorney General.
If indeed the federal grand jury finds evidence of involvement according to law, we will understand that those reporting the incident who were involved as Democrats in elected positions were protecting themselves from misprision of felony by reporting the incident. Christie's Office is also the subject of an investigation by a State Legislative Panel.
If this were a model to the Federal Office of the President of the United States in Obama's identity and qualification scandal, attorney general Eric Holder would be convening a Grand Jury to submit the evidences of Obama's fraudulent identity and qualification for the Office of the President to those members of the Grand Jury, and the U.S. House of Representatives as well as the U.S. Senate would also be holding hearings so that all the evidences might be considered and heard to exempt themselves from misprision of felony charges.
That's the duty of the Congress if the President shall fail to qualify. All of the Presidential Candidates for 2016 will indeed be responsible for answering the questions about Obama's identity and qualifications and why they chose to act according to their record on the matter, considering the evidences presented and laid out to them by professional criminal investigators.
Due to the Office of the President having such great power and authority to prosecute, profile, and target individuals who are Americans indeed foreign allegiances of dual citizenship are prohibited from and only from the Office of the President for good reasons involving national security.
Though Cody Robert Judy is the only Presidential Candidate in America to file a record in Court in a non-partisan and non-racial stand for the principle in the United States Constitution against both McCain and Obama, those candidates for President in 2016 would either undoubtedly be charged or questioned for a Caucasian discrimination or in fact just a blatant disregard for the Constitution, neither one of which is something they would want on their resume.
How much sense does it make to elect and in such hire a President of the United States who has a record of blatantly refusing to uphold the law? How much sense does it make to put your trust in someone who has an actual record of working to cover-up Obama's fraud and deception which has then been perpetrated upon every American with horror and scandal? This cover-up is no longer in the shadows of "I dont know", or "My trust lies in the media report". Its at their door step.
Cody insists that discernment in fact is embedded in the heart of each American. The trust to do what you say is embedded in the record of each Candidate and so always remains in their past actions of taking a stand. While Cody's Presidential Team may be seen as a JV Team compared to the Varsity Teams of Hillary Clinton, Paul Ryan, Rand Paul, Joe Biden, and others, at the very least Americans have a record with Cody's actions to put some trust into where it is extremely lacking in these other elected officials.
Cody says he wishes that other candidates actually would have taken this issue more seriously given the national security threat posed by it upon every American. "I don't think they have considered the ramifications of Obama's fraud upon the familys of every American. If their own family being blackmailed is in question then their leadership position should be retired quickly, 'land of the free and home of the brave' is a theme not a passing thought in leadership postions, and if its just the Constitution they have a problem with then of course they believe their oath a passing thought also. We are seeing the cave in the Republican party on Obamascare right now.", said Cody.
Though a bit obscure in the report by National Media, a quick look at those supporting Cody Robert Judy for 2016 on a new facebook page shows a demographic of national support. This is very revealing on the candidate’s national conscience, broad scope of appeal, and is actually quite shocking.
Usually you would find a concentrated local appeal for a given candidate in a particular home base, such as you would find in an elected leaders appeal to their home state or elected seat. This is just not the case with Cody Robert Judy's Presidential page and reflects a broad demographics appeal that is not concentrated and completely random to the first 120 likes on facebook page.
Indeed if you didn't know it, you'd think there is in fact as reported with Sen. Rand Paul a network that has been set up nationally to handle a presidential run in 2016 that is flying under the radar of the National Press.
The weekly challenge has invited all those leaders who have liked Cody Robert Judy for President 2016 to get 5 more people they know to like the fb page. Won’t you join a team who can claim taking a stand for the Constitution with a record behind it that doesn't include covering up for Obama's identity fraud creating a constitutional crisis?

How You Can Help
Obama's long form birth certificate has been exhumed to be nothing more than a long form fabrication by professional law enforcement standards and that was brought to the attention of the United States Supreme Court in Judy v. Obama 12-5276, for which I served as the Presidential Candidate running in the Democratic Party and after the primary, as an Independent Presidential Candidate securing the 'standing' necessary for the complaint in 2012 and2013.
Orrin Hatch R - U.S Senator from Utah and Mitch McConnell R- U.S. Senator from Kentucky just requested two sheriffs kits produced by Michael Volin of WheresObamasBirthCertificate.com (WOBC) with the purpose of informing the public and elected officials of the forgery of the long-form birth certificate image posted since April 27, 2011 on the White House website. These kits (Get Yours Free Here) contain the same evidence released in March 1,2012 (and a little more) that I included in my case against Obama that went from Georgia State- Georgia State Supreme- to U.S. Supreme 12-5276 in Judy v. Obama. There will also be a Sheriff Kit 2 that will follow the coming revelations of the Cold Case Posse set to be released in a short time.
Please urge and encourage your Representatives to OPEN AND TRANSPARENT HEARINGS in the House of Representatives on Obama's eligibility as the solution to eliminating Obamacare. These hearings must be held and the evidence must be heard that are in the Sheriff's kits most all of the Representatives have received now.
If these hearings are conducted in the open and reported in the open, the evidence will mount collectively and the U.S. Senate although it has a majority of Democrats will have to concede to the facts and evidences or will be seen as completely unfit for their duties and as incompetent. Utah would most likely see more benefits come from supporting the Candidates like myself, (well, Candidate as myself because there were no other candidates in the entire U.S.A. who stood up for principle regardless of party), fighting for equal protections under the law in pushing for Open and Transparent Hearings in Congress with two million dollars on Obama's Verification Eligibility qualification hearings on the stage to remove him as a disability according to Amend 14, Sec.3 would be a lot faster solution.

We pray for the Lord to save our Country and restore America from the dilapidation we now find ourselves, and the principles of the Constitution in. For this I am Taking A Stand.
Don't mistake that sad face as an American Patriot - that is the face of a man who has turned against his Country. No real tears folks - he's laughing all the way to the bank while we're trying to hold down two part jobs and put food on our tables.
Over 100 million American workers are on John Boenher’s hit list – that seems to be a very rash statement. John Boehner, Cantor Ryan and Goodlatte have placed the amnesty issue on the front burner - that's reality.
Boehner intends to get his way by giving millions of illegal aliens a free pass to our Nation’s jobs, medical care, unemployment insurance, food stamps, free education and Federally funded housing - this won’t just be a conversation piece it will be a reality in 2014 if “we the people don’t stop him.”
Why are House Speaker John Boehner, Majority Leader Eric Cantor, Budget Committee chairman Paul Ryan, and Judiciary Committee chairman Bob Goodlatte pushing for amnesty in 2014? Our Nation is crumpling due to very few full time jobs, tremendous taxes and exhorbitant charges for Obamacare and 5 scandals that are unsolved and Boehner chooses amnesty as a priority.
We have an economy that is broken, horrific National debt, unsecured borders, a weakened Military and a Government that is way too big for it’s britches. We are in the midst of an election year and Boehner is waving his white flag, knuckling in the knees and kissing Obama and Democrats “fannies.” If Boehner gets his way Americans will be the recipients of higher taxes, more debt to pay off and fewer jobs for the American work force. We have suffered enough pain from the corrupt politicians in the White House!
To sit make and surmise that amnesty is on the front burner because Republicans are desperate and buying votes is a farce – the few votes purchased by this illegal albatross aren’t even worth talking about… The truth is Boehner and gang are playing footsey with the Corporate CEO and the US Chamber of Commerce because amnesty to illegal aliens is an automatic solution equating to millions of low pay and low- skilled labor employees.
If anyone thinks Boehner isn’t planning to push amnesty, just remember in December he hired a professional amnesty advocate to push this bill thru the House. Remember this name (Rebecca Tallent) because we’ll be hearing a lot from her in the next few weeks – Rebecca use to be one of John McCain’s staffers. Boehner’s actions have nothing to do with finding common ground with the Democrats he is doing this strictly to appease Corporate CEO and the US Chamber of Commerce.
Hopefully all Tea Party members will crash Boehner’s Twitter, Facebook accounts, his telephone and email service with one liners, “We the people don’t want “Amnesty” on the table in 2014 period – we want the five scandals resolved that have threatened millions of Americans and we want you to either do your job as an American Patriot or kindly step down, Mr. Boehner.”
I pray that my friends read this article and help me get Boehner’s attention.
At the end of September, Marita Noon and I began to expose the various failures of Obama’s green-energy expenditures (mainly from the trillion dollar, 2009-stimulus package where over $90 billion was earmarked for "green") –– projects and firms that have gone bankrupt (confirming 15 with more on our radar). A hot topic that became part of the first presidential debate where after President Obama pressed Mitt Romney for supporting tax cuts for oil companies, Romney reminded Obama that he put $90 billion into failing green companies like Solyndra, Fisker, Tesla, and Ener1. “I had friend who said you don’t just pick the winners and losers, you pick the losers,” Romney cleverly added.
We then we moved on to those that are functioning, but facing difficulties –– struggling either financially, while some environmentally, still others laying off workers, and quite a few on life support (approximately 20).
Lastly, we addressed the "5 million green jobs that Candidate Obama had promised in 2008," of which Team Obama is now claiming victory, however, as we noted, the math doesn't add up, nor does the gimmick accounting –– recycled ones; those that already existed –– used by the Obama administration's Labor Department.
While in Marita's Townhall.com columns we placed an * after the project/company’s name to indicate a political connection (cronyism and corruption), in my subsequent blogs I expanded upon our efforts, and plugged in my research, listing those critical ties.
In our three-part series, two focused directly on the failures, and our sums were 15 bankruptcies and 20 troubled (a total of 35 with over 65% having meaningful Democrat political connections –– bundlers, donors, supporters, etc). Yet, considering the rapid speed of these "green" bankruptcies and issues (about 10 that I read about just last week), I'm compiling new totals here, which will include a new and updated list by the Heritage Foundation dated October 18, 2012 –– President Obama’s Taxpayer-Backed Green Energy Failures –– with their total of 36 (updated later with a number of 34). And most listed at The Heritage and ours are very similar, however, they have some we don't and vise versa.
Newcalculations: 22 bankrupt, 25 troubled, equals a new "Obama green-energy failure" list total of 47. And so far, at least $15 billion of "green" taxpayer money is either gone or still at risk, and the majority was funneled to Obama and Democrat cronies –– I can confirm that over 62% are political connected.

ADDITION: Solar City* –– Got a $275 million conditional guarantee (DOE) thatwas later rejected. Besides some financial issues, Solar City was subpoenaed in July as part of a federal probe of the Treasury grant program. As reported by The Washington Free Beacon (October 18, 2012), SolarCity, is currently being audited by the Internal Revenue Service and investigated by the Treasury Department’s inspector general amid allegations that the firm misrepresented the value of its investment when applying for stimulus grants. So it looks like Solar City" has applied for approximately $325 million in these stimulus grants, according to the SEC filing." So, loan rejected, but the grant is larger (as are the political ties) –– we'll keep an eye on this story.
Solar World Industries America –– $4.6 million
HFADDITION: Vestas ($50 million)
HFADDITION: LG Chem’s subsidiary Compact Power ($151 million, part of the Recovery Act, and millions worth of special state tax breaks based on job creation of all things) LG Chem is another green company that President Obama touted during his visit at the LG Chem battery cell production site in 2010. This is an amusing story that was recently brought to my attention –– according to Wood TV, Michigan (October 18, 2012), "Workers at LG Chem, a $300 million lithium-ion battery plant heavily funded by taxpayers, tell Target 8 that they have so little work to do that they spend hours playing cards and board games, reading magazines or watching movies." Now, their story (more scandalous than what I posted here) is under investigation by the Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board –– an oversight agency for the federal stimulus program, what I call the RAT Board –– another huge part of this green corruption scandal.
The following companies have been removed from the original list: AES’s subsidiary Eastern Energy, LSP Energy and Uni-Solar did not receive government-backed loans, based on additional research. The National Renewable Energy Lab did received $200 million in stimulus funding, but it is a government laboratory.
NOTE: My blog reflects the Heritage "corrections," however, I kept in AES and the National Energy Lab –– and we initially had four unconfirmed bankruptcies:
Mountain Plaza Inc.
Olsen Crop Service/Olsen Mills
Willard & Kelsey Solar Group
So far, at least $15 billion of "green" taxpayer money is either gone or still at risk, and the majority was funneled to Obama and Democrat cronies
As you can see tracking President Obama's failed green-energy expenditures is like aiming at a moving target, and calculating the exact dollar amount is even more difficult to pinpoint. This is partly due the fact that companies/projects received multiple green government subsidies that weren't recorded or tracked properly (federal and state loans, grants and special tax credits, and from various programs and agencies). Also, some of these firms were given a loan guarantee, yet didn't have access to the entire amount, prior to their bankruptcy. However, as a ballpark figure, I'd say that at least $15 billion that we know of at this time. And here's why...
I had purposely listed the bankrupt and troubled from the Department of Energy's Loan Guarantee Program (DOE LGP) first. Since 2009, the DOE has guaranteed $34.7 billion – 46% through the 1705 ($16 billion of which 90% are politically connected), 30% through the 1703 ($10.3 billion—AREVA and Georgia Power), and 14% through the ATVM ($8.4 billion and 3 of the five loans are tied directly to Obama).
Marita and I covered eleven companies from the DOE LGP (Solyndra, Abound Solar, Beacon Power, Fisker Auto, Telsa Motors, AREVA, BrightSource Energy, First Solar, Nevada Geothermal, NextEra Energy's Genesis Solar Project, and SunPower/NRG Energy's California Valley Solar Ranch), noting that from that program alone, close to $10 billion of taxpayer money is already gone, while, as you can see, some is still at risk. What's interesting to note is that of the "26 loan guarantees under the 1705 program, of which the DOE doled out in excess of $16 billion, “23 of the loans were rated “Junk grade” due to their poor credit quality, while the other four were rated BBB, which is at the lowest end of the 'investment' grade of categories.”
Meaning that the DOE had already put the majority of that $16 billion into excessively risky investments. And to add insult to taxpayer injury, the driving force behind these decisions weren't based merit as the DOE would have you believe –– obviously it was cronyism and corruption. My April 2012 analysis of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform March 2012 report confirmed that over 90% have meaningful political ties to President Obama and high ranking Democrats, or both, which gives credence to Congressman Ryan's jab to the so-called "Stimulus Sheriff," Vice President Joe Biden during the VP debate, "$90 billion in green pork to campaign contributors and special interest groups." Ryan went on to call the Obama green-energy expenditures what it is, "crony capitalism and corporate welfare."
In case you missed our Obama Green Energy Failures, Three Part Series:
I received the following supposed budget cuts from a friend. While I haven't been able to verify every cent, if even some of them are correct, this is shocking.
My question is, what is all this doing in the budget in the first place? If, indeed, these figures are accurate, they are only the tip of the iceberg. There is a lot of waste in the military budget just as, I'm sure, in every Federal bureaucracies' budgets. We should scrub all of them to the essentials.
Also, BEFORE we allow congress resort to raising our taxes to support their profligate spending, we should do a salary and benefit review of their compensation packages. They've voted themselves far better benefits than an average American enjoys, yet there is no penalty for them if they do a poor job. The worst that can happen is they are voted out of office and collect their pension and benefits. Bet you'd like a job like that!
We should demand that Congress re-evaluate all of our foreign aid expenditures as well as our participation in, and contribution to, the United Nations. It's become very one sided in our funding and hosting them yet very little support for our interests or initiatives. We'd be better served to establish strong alliances with countries that have similar interests and aspirations and lend our foreign aid to them--and only them.
It is time to stop borrowing money to give away to other countries and wasting on inefficient government programs at home. It is unconscionable that we would allow our government to saddle future generations with a debt that they have had no say in how the money was spent. Essentially this is TAXATION (of the yet to be born) without any REPRESENTATION! The very principle that drove our separation from England.

My question still is, what is all this doing in the budget in the first place?
Maybe this is why the Democrats are attacking Paul Ryan.
Who needs debates between candidates when you can have cartoon character distractions?
First there was Barack Obama, who did so poorly in his first debate with GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney that he and his campaign resorted to focusing on saving Big Bird and Sesame Street from spending cuts.
Next, there was Joe Biden auditioning to play the role of the Joker in a Batman show at Universal City Hollywood.
Biden showed he is a real natural.
His innate ability to bully, muster condescending goofy faces, to laugh, smirk, constantly interrupt, grimace, or chuckle while very serious topics were being discussed showed that when it comes to being a Court Jester, Biden is more than ready to play prime time.
Some believe Biden’s performance in the October 11th VP debate was a win for “progressive” Democrats, because it dominated the post-debate conversation.
That perspective is a clear sign of how panicked “progressives” and their parroting lapdogs within the institutionalized “progressive” left and the ultra-obedient “progressive” Party Pravda are.
If the best they can point to is a sitting Vice President making stupid, animated faces in reaction to nearly everything Congressman Paul Ryan said, they are desperately grasping at straws.
Talk about drawing inappropriate conclusions.
An “expert” named Jerry Shuster, a University of Pittsburgh professor, claimed that Biden’s painfully rude, childish behavior helped him control the agenda.
Would it have helped Biden control the agenda had he worn tights, ridden a unicycle and juggled chainsaws?
Shuster also said Biden’s inexplicably condescending body language was an important strategic move because it kept Ryan off stride.
Of course, having al Qaeda terrorists launch a sophisticated 9/11 terrorist attack complete with rocket propelled grenades and mortars, one that murders four people, would have kept Ryan off stride. Especially if Biden stuck to the now fully discredited story that it sprang from a spontaneous protest to a video so obscure nobody had heard of it until the White House used it as an excuse to cover up its own incompetence.
Oh wait, Biden did stick to that story during the debate.
Of course, if in the eyes of “progressive” Democrats all it takes to win a debate is cutting off your opponent while speaking, a human clown is not even necessary.
An embarrassingly flatulent gorilla would suffice.
Certainly either launching a terrorist attack or introducing a large primate suffering major digestive discomfort would throw an opponent off stride during a debate.
Serious experts agreed that Ryan was successful in his first outing on the national debate stage. His performance against a man 27 years his senior showed that his command of foreign and domestic policies will make him a credible, acceptable Vice President.
And if after he loses his job as Vice President Biden loses out in his bid to play the Joker, perhaps his ability to cackle will help him win a job playing the wicked witch of the west in a Wizard of Oz show.
BIRTHERISM IS AMERICAN EXCEPTUALISM-Mitt Romney apologizes for America.
Yesterday Barack Obama's Camp flew a Banner over Mitt Romney's gathering that said, "America is better then Birtherism", though misspelled the Romney Camp refused to take the Constitution on its demand for a natural born citizen for the office of the President seriously, and instead of sounding a resolute, "Democrats better have a qualified candidate if I'm made the nominee", Romney couched and didn't have the courage for the Constitution that is requisite with someone's character to hold the office.
This basically was an apology for America, which Mitt was on record of accusing Barack Obama for doing; apologizing for America's Constitution? What kind of a leader would do such a thing about our Constitution?
Citizens wonder what kind of character it takes to be President? Well, this was a perfect example of the kind of character that would not be a good example ,or leader, or voice, or defender for the preservation, protection, and defense of the Constitution as the oath requires.
If Mitt Romney can not stand against Barack Obama in simply demanding our Constitution be upheld for the office of which he is running outlined by the Constitution, that is taking a stand for American Exceptualism, how would he ever be able to protect America's national security against enemies foreign?
Cody Robert Judy has taken a stand for America and her Constitution against Barack Obama's slander at American exceptualism of which Birtherism is so intertwined and is on record with the United States Supreme Court in Judy v. Obama Case no. 12-5276 for the defense of our Constitution. This is the kind of character we need for our President and Cody is running for President in the Democratic Party looking for the nomination of his party in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Mitt Romney has declined on the Constitution to represent the qualifications of the President. Barack Obama doesn't like the Constitution because he's not a natural born citizen as is represented in SCOTUS Judy v. Obama 12-5276 from the Cody Robert Judy for President 2012 U.S.C. Eligibility Campaign.
What are we to think of Mitt Romney's pick for the next Vice President? He's not a graduate of Columbia University. He's not a graduate of Harvard. He wasn't selected as the President of the Harvard Law Review. He didn't get a special free quota scholarship ride to any prestigious university and, instead, had to work his way through Miami University of Ohio. For God's sake the man drove the Oscar Mayer Wiener Truck one summer and waited tables another!
One morning when Paul Ryan was sixteen years old he went in to wake his father up and found him dead of a heart attack. He didn't write two books about that experience (like Obama did). Instead, he assumed the role of adult at an early age, never having the luxury to pursue youthful drug use and the art of socialist revolution.
Instead, Paul Ryan and his mother took his grandmother, suffering from Alzheimers, into the household and served as the primary care provider for his grandma. His grandma wasn't the Vice President of the Bank of Hawaii (like Obama's) so she could offer nothing in return, except the element of "need".
Once Paul Ryan got his BA in Economics from Miami University of Ohio he was hired as a staff economist in Wisconsin Senator Kastin's office. The job must have not paid well because young Ryan moonlighted as a waiter and fitness trainer. No one offered him a "token honor" position at the University of Chicago and a $200,000 dollar a year salary.
When a still young Paul Ryan returned to Wisconsin to run for Congress he didn't demonize his opponent and dig up dirt to shovel against him. He waited until the standing Congressman vacated the office before seeking the office. In Janesville, Wisconsin they don't have a big political machine to promote you, to criminalize your opponent; instead Paul Ryan had to go door to door and sit at kitchen tables and listen to his future constituents.
After getting elected to Congress Paul Ryan didn't triumphantly march into Washington, buy himself a Georgetown townhouse and proceed over to K Street to rub elbows with lobbyists. He bunked in his Congressional office and used the house gym for showers and a fresh change of clothes.
Paul Ryan then married and took his bride back to Janesville. He lives on the same street he lived on as a kid and shares the neighborhood with eight other members of the Ryan clan. He hunts with the local Janesville hunt club and attends PTA meetings and other civic functions.
For those who can't make those public functions, Paul Ryan bought an old bread truck, converted it into a "mobile constituent office" and drives around to meet with those who need his help and attention.
No, I don't know if we can vote for a guy like this. He doesn't have a regal pedigree; he's Irish for God's sake! No one awarded him a Nobel Peace Prize two months after getting elected. No one threw flowers or got "chills down their leg" as a he took his seat in Congress.
What is most despicable about Paul Ryan is that he has had the nerve to write the House Budget for three years in a row. He's is brazen and heartless in advocating in that budget for a $5 trillion dollar reduction in federal spending over the next ten years! The House passed his budget three years in a row and three years in a row the Democratically controlled Senate has let it die in the upper house, without ever proposing a budget of their own. What is wrong with this guy? If Congress were to cut $5 trillion dollars from the budget where would the President get the money to give $500 million dollars to a bankrupt Solyndra? Or $200 million dollars for bankrupt Energy 1? Or $11 billion dollars to illegal aliens filing INIT, non-resident tax returns to claim $11 billion big ones in child tax credits, even for their children living in Mexico?
I don't know. Paul Ryan seems heartless to me. He keeps wanting to cut government waste, he keeps wanting to put a halt to those big GSA conventions in Vegas and, worse, he keeps trying to make people look at that $16.7 trillion dollar deficit! The guy's no fun at all!
Who wants a numbers cruncher? Who wants someone spoiling the party by showing folks the bill? Nothing will spoil a party quicker than sending the host the bill before the party's over.
CALLING ALL FRIENDS!!! Please help me keep this going!! Darla Dawald lit the fuse on Patriot Action Network and now it needs your help! I hope it will add more excitement to to race for President and Mitt Romney likes it! wink! THANKS PATRIOTS ! (plz share. my permission granted for air play)
Of course Romney and Ryan would like you to believe they represent 'mainstream' America, but with the Nation at about a 50% divorce rate how do politicians who have never been divorced expect you to look at them and know what your talking about?
The same philosophy is touted by Mitt Romney in the jobs arena. He says because he was a successful businessman he can produce jobs. So how does being married to one women help him with the 50% divorce rate in America? The truth is it doesn't, and actually Mitt Romney hasn't been in the same condition financially that the shrinking middle class, the unemployed, and the poor are facing, well, let's face it, he never has been in the middle class or the poor class.
Millions of Americans are suffering from greater stress because of the financial melt down of politicians who because they haven't supported the Constitution have increasingly made America either the policeman of the world propping up governments that are questionably a real threat, or busy making a nanny-state. It works for awhile, but the buck just keeps getting pushed back to another generation.
The stress at home has never been greater in this generation with kids moving back in with parents,and parents increasingly at odds with children who've got used to 'having it all, all at once".
The truth is there are a lot of good solutions coming from Cody Robert Judy, both in the social arena as he has been through divorce as a child and adult as well as the small business end that is desperately needed to fuel America's economy back into working order.
What most people don't understand is just how valuable of a blue print our Constitution is and how its principles when followed could have kept us out of the trouble we are in.
The other thing people say is that Washington DC is so far gone that it just can't get back on track. Well, that may be true as far as the impact a single Representative or Senator might have, but when it comes to the President a lot can happen if someone is in office actually holds to the Constitution and governs with its principles in mind.
That's why Cody Robert Judy took a stand for the Constitution drawing a line in the sand with Barack Obama's eligibility requirements not being fulfilled as a natural born citizen and now has a case in the United States Supreme Court in Judy v. Obama Case No. 12-5276.
Cody is asking the United States Supreme Court to actually hold up its own precedent and the Constitution in the 'natural born citizen' clause. If the court is unwilling to protect the Constitution in the office of the President from foreign influence the other principles of the Constitution might as well be chucked also, as is characteristic of what is happening in so many executive orders being signed and congressional acts being passed like the NDA, which allows Americans to be held without charges and incarcerated and of course the Patriot Act.
With Washington DC Politicians increasingly out of the loop of main stream America, the time has come to set Washington DC straight and clean both houses up and Cody is hoping that can begin in his United States Supreme Court case Judy v. Obama 12-5276. If it happens both the Democrats and Republicans who have been playing games with the Constitution and their oaths will be put on notice.
Let's hope the United States Supreme Court Justices still feel that interpreting the Constitution as a check and balance at protecting the integrity of our offices, the demands for qualifications made, and of course their own jobs is important.

ROMNEY/RYAN - How Conservative Does One Wife Make You?
The idea of saying your conservative because you've been married to one person is about what Romney and Ryan want you to choke down, especially given they completely turn their back on the Constitution in Obama's eligibility, and the fraud and forgery coming out of the White House as identification documents.
The Cabalistic Globalization that exist between Romney and Ryan pursuits is punctuated with the fraud and forgery of Obama's ineligibility, lack of integrity towards the Constitution, and America's National Security says Cody Robert Judy, " If you think differently you need to take your blinders off."
Mitt Romney is set to announce his running mate around 9 AM Saturday morning during a visit to Norfolk, Va. Strong signs point to that running mate being Paul Ryan of Wisconsin. I guess we'll all know by lunch tomorrow if these sources are correct.
Update: Its a Romney Ryan Ticket! I guess we'll see what impact this will all have after the talking heads hash it out and all the pundits blabber on.
