From William Jacobson comes this superb link to the utter bucket of lies that the Congress and the White House are attempting to foist on the American people:

So Many Lies, So Little Time

The lies behind the Obamacare push resemble birds flocking together and fish swimming in schools. By throwing forward so many falsehoods as to the supposed benefits of Obamacare, it confuses attackers and makes it harder to isolate any one lie.

Firedoglake, which stands almost alone in exposing Obamacare from the left, has put together a very useful chart of all the lies (embed below). These lies are lies regardless of whether one approaches the monstrosity known as Obamacare from the principled left or the principled right.

The truth doesn’t come in left or right, and the truth is that there are so many lies behind Obamacare that we are on the verge of the single biggest mistake since we elected Obama in the first place.”

American MajorityNow that Sarah Palin has kicked off the Tea Party for 2010 via her February speech at the Tea Party Convention in Nashville, and the CPAC speeches are done, it’s time to get organized!

In that vein, RedState announced today that it is teaming up with American Majority and Smart Girl Politics for some post-party summits.

“…At a time when Americans are losing their allegiance to political parties for the sake of parties, we’re focusing more and more on ideas and ideals.”, Erick Erickson stated.   This is exactly what Sarah Palin has said time and again:  to pledge our allegiance not to the cult of personalities, but to ideas.  Palin herself has refrained from presenting herself as the leader of the Tea Party.

To move forward we need to focus not only on ideas but we need also be in learning mode.  How long has it been since we have paid attention to our civic duty, voting and jury duty aside?  To paraphrase Erickson, ‘It is not enough to stand on the sideline, it is not enough to protest.  We each of us, must invest our time in learning how to implement freedom and liberty on the ground in our own communities.  As the alarm coming from America’s heartland breeches “red alert”, it is fast becoming our civic duty to respond to the ever-increasing, ever encroaching socialist agenda being driven down our throats from Washington DC. 

We as conservatives, moderates, independents — anyone who takes umbrage with the Washington agenda that is a threat to our freedom — can successfully train and work together to retake our communities and lead them forward with principles of limited government, individual freedom and the free market.  This won’t happen by itself.  As important as the brownie and the scouting and all the other over scheduled places we need to be, at this moment of our lives we need to put time aside for becoming actively involved in the process of reclaiming our communities, our schools and our government.  

American Majority is gearing up with training dates and locations where you may register for an event in your region. These training events are beginning or in the planning stages across America. If you have any questions about the training offered, the organizations behind the events, or other questions please contact the American Majority team.

The ground wave rolling forth across this great land that began as the Tea Parties of 2009 has moved onto the next stage.  It may seem as if the tea parties movement has withered and dispersed but no, we are now going  about the business of learning how to effectively regain our beloved America.  We are now at the place on the tarmac where we team up, collaborate, and work together to win the race.

I came across this video somewhere, out there in the vastness of the blogosphere, encapsulating in several snippets the absurdity of what passes for officialdom in Washington DC these days.  Vote these clowns out or suffer the continual crisis of  consequences these imposeurs seek to design on us:

Joe 'The Plumber' Wurzelbacher Once again Joe 'the Plumber' Wurzelbacher steps forward and asks the political elitists some questions for America, like 'why do you keep wasting our tax money on fools errands?'

 

You Don’t Need a Washington Task Force to Understand the Middle Class

by Joe ‘The Plumber’ Wurzelbacher , as posted on Big Government, February 1 , 2010

It was kind of hard to stop laughing when I read that Joe Biden is leading a Task Force to study what’s on the mind of middle class Americans. Give me a break.

Biden

It would be funny if it were not so sad that those in Washington need a special commission to figure out what America thinks. How can we be represented in the first place if the people we hired to carry our hopes and fears are so clueless?

Here’s my suggestion Mr. Biden—take a trip to any town or city and sit down for an early breakfast in a coffee shop. Stop talking long enough to listen. Try a barber or beauty shop for the same lesson. Have a beer in a tavern. The key here, Mr. Biden—and all you folks from Washington, D.C. who have become so frightened that people are expressing their independent will at the polls—is to stop pontificating long enough to actually hear what we are saying.”

“The government has now confirmed what has always been clear: no one tried to wiretap or bug Senator Landrieu’s office. Nor did we try to cut or shut down her phone lines. Reports to this effect over the past 48 hours are inaccurate and false.

As an investigative journalist, my goal is to expose corruption and lack of concern for citizens by government and other institutions, as I did last year when our investigations revealed the massive corruption and fraud perpetuated by ACORN. For decades, investigative journalists have used a variety of tactics to try to dig out and reveal the truth.

I learned from a number of sources that many of Senator Landrieu’s constituents were having trouble getting through to her office to tell her that they didn’t want her taking millions of federal dollars in exchange for her vote on the healthcare bill. When asked about this, Senator Landrieu’s explanation was that, “Our lines have been jammed for weeks.” I decided to investigate why a representative of the people would be out of touch with her constituents for “weeks” because her phones were broken. In investigating this matter, we decided to visit Senator Landrieu’s district office – the people’s office – to ask the staff if their phones were working.

On reflection, I could have used a different approach to this investigation, particularly given the sensitivities that people understandably have about security in a federal building. The sole intent of our investigation was to determine whether or not Senator Landrieu was purposely trying to avoid constituents who were calling to register their views to her as their Senator. We video taped the entire visit, the government has those tapes, and I’m eager for them to be released because they refute the false claims being repeated by much of the mainstream media.

It has been amazing to witness the journalistic malpractice committed by many of the organizations covering this story. MSNBC falsely claimed that I violated a non-existent “gag order.” The Associated Press incorrectly reported that I “broke in” to an office which is open to the public. The Washington Post has now had to print corrections in two stories on me. And these are just a few examples of inaccurate and false reporting. The public will judge whether reporters who can’t get their facts straight have the credibility to question my integrity as a journalist.
