Wanted: The Common Sense of Ronald Reagan

The pundits and the experts and the GOP RINOs all say 'the era of Reagan is over'.

I beg to differ. The era of politicians with the grit and character of Ronald Reagan seems to be over, but the principals he espoused certainly are not.

When someone emerges with signs of having at least the common sense that God gave a goose, then conservatives will have someone to vote for again.

Until then the Republican Party will remain in the minority.

I Miss This Guy...

President Ronald Reagan

'Here's my strategy on the Cold War:
We win, they lose.' - Ronald Reagan

'The most terrifying words in the English language are: I'm from the government and I'm here to help.' -Ronald Reagan

'The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they're ignorant; it's just that they know so much that isn't so.' - Ronald Reagan

'Of the four wars in my lifetime, none came about because the U.S. was too strong.' - Ronald Reagan

'I have wondered at times about what the Ten Commandments would have looked like if Moses had run them through the U.S. Congress.' - Ronald Reagan

'The taxpayer: That's someone who works for the federal government but doesn't have to take the civil service examination.' - Ronald Reagan

'Government is like a baby: An alimentary canal with a big appetite at one end and no sense of responsibility at the other.' - Ronald Reagan

'The nearest thing to eternal life we will ever see on this earth is a government program.' - Ronald Reagan

'It has been said that politics is the second oldest profession. I have learned that it bears a striking resemblance to the first.' - Ronald Reagan

'Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.' - Ronald Reagan

'Politics is not a bad profession. If you succeed, there are many rewards; if you disgrace yourself, you can always write a book.' - Ronald Reagan

'No arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world, is as formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women.' - Ronald Reagan

'If we ever forget that we're one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under.' - Ronald Reagan

Regulating Your Life

We've GOT to stop them from regulating every aspect of our lives.  They want to tax AIR!
We are NOT subjects to a benevolent master.
We are FREE AMERICAN CITIZENS!  But we must act together to fight them back.

Since last week, the anti-energy elites have become more open about their intentions to punish Americans with new energy taxes, even as the price of gasoline creeps up at the gas pump.

Today, when talking about cap and trade, Speaker Pelosi said:  "Every aspect of our lives must be subjected to an inventory ... of how we are taking responsibility."

We must fight back against those who want to dictate to us how we use our energy - in our homes, in our cars, you name it.

We've launched our "Stop the Energy Tax" petition to get this message out.

To start off, watch this new video we produced and then sign the petition by clicking here.

Once you've signed, please forward this email to 10 of your friends and ask them to sign the petition here:

Cap and trade is an energy tax. It's that simple. It is an effort to make energy more expensive for the average American, so that we use less. That's just not a solution. Instead, it's a recipe for killing jobs.

With your help, we can defeat this new energy tax.

Subject: Al Gore and Co. Must be Stopped

Dear Dan,

Congressman Henry Waxman is trying to finish his "Cap and Trade" Energy Tax bill by today, in order to have it ready for a full vote by Memorial Day.

Al GoreAnd as Politico reports, he's had a "hidden helping hand" this week from Al Gore. They write that Gore has "mobilized his green grass roots, marshaled his well-endowed lobbying organization and even personally called Democratic committee members of the House Energy and Commerce Committee."

So, we're launching a nationwide "Stop the Energy Tax" campaign to stop this.

It's been estimated that the Waxman energy tax bill would raise an average family's annual energy bill by $1,500, and destroy 1-3 million jobs per year, over the next 15 years.

Can you afford to pay $1,500 more a year for energy?

Our "Stop the Energy Tax" campaign is how we can fight back, but the first step is launching it.

We need to raise $100,000 in the next two days, so we can set up a rapid-response operation, create internet ads, and deliver your petitions to Congress. Think about this - you are one of 1.3 million people getting this email today. If 10,000 members chip in just $15, we'll beat our goal.

A generous donor has agreed to match up to $100,000 in online donations. Your contribution today will have double the impact in stopping this massive tax increase. Here's the link to contribute:

We can have a "Full Power" American energy policy that produces more energy here at home while protecting the environment.  This will lead to more jobs and a more prosperous America.  

Thank you for what you're doing.

Deceptive Advertising flyer from Domain Renewal Group

I get thse bogus domain renewal forms every 3 to 6 months before my domain names are due to renew.

I've gotten them many times over the years.

It's annoying and very deceptive but I'm usually in the middle of fighting 3 or 4 other fires and I just don't have time to try to save the world from one more scam artist, so I just toss them.

However, today I did have time.

2. I submited a formal Prohibitory Order (USPS Form 1500) to the United State Post Office.

Note that the form implies that the offending mailing must be sexually oriented. It does not. Any reason is sufficent and the addressee need not state any reason whatsoever on the form. Note here and here.

3. I created this blog entry with lots of keywords, like scam artist, rip-off, deceptive marketing practices, etc., that will mix in with many others who are doing the same to try to spread the word.

These dweebs are apparently running this racket out of Canada.
Obviously they are making millions on this or they wouldn't keep doing it year after year.

Wouldn't you think that that alone be enough for our government to "protect us"?

Maybe our fully funded Federal government could get off its lead a** and actually do something about this?

Dear FTC:

"Domain Renewal Group" (DRG) appears to be a remake of "Domain Registry of America, Inc. (DROA). I received 3 of their invoice-looking flyers in my (land) mail. These flyers are fraudulent or at least very deceptive in that they appear to be a bill or invoices, and only down in the 3rd paragraph, 4th line does it say 'This notice is not a bill.' I do not do business with this company, nor have I ever. Their rip-off prices for domain name renewal should be incentive enough for you to take action. I renew my domain names for $7, not $30. This company is known to prey on novice computer users who may not realize who their domain name is registered with, or who don't review the flyer closely. The 'fine print' on the back of the form is a laughable 4 point font, faded gray ink. No human over 40 could ever read it without the Hubble Telescope. PLEASE stop this deceptive practice!

(BTW, their mailing address is to a Mailboxes, Etc. location.)

No More RINOs!

Dear Mr. Powell,

You just don't get  it. Conservatives would come out in droves to support the Republican Party if they would stop acting like liberal Democrats. You and Ridge and Specter and a host of thers are so worried about being "inclusive" you are tossing your foundation under the bus. They not switching parties they are simply evaporating. What good does it do to vote at all if your choices are two liberals, one in a blue tie and one in a red tie?

Show me a true conservative candidate and you'll see another landslide victory ala Reagan.

You also need to understand that Rush Limbaugh is not your problem. It's his millions of listeners who agree with what he says. You can denigrate him with your "entertainer" remark like that keith clown does, but when you do, you're insulting 20 million people at once.

Are you really up for that?

Clinton was only elected because Bush 41 was such a wimpy liberal Republican and after promising no new taxes, reniged and raised them anyway rather than take the tough task of cutting the bloated federal budget. Did conservatives vote for Clinton? No, but a large number of them voted for Perot, who while perhaps comical in stature, was saying the right things to get the government back in the black fiscally. But it wasn't enough and Clinton pulled it off.  Conservatives came back again in 1994 after Clinton raised taxes and pulled the reigns back in with Gingrich's Contract with America platform, despite his vetoes. That reform easily pulled him through two terms. Then comes Bush 43, in a field of RINOs, barely pulling off 2 wins (had it not been for war I believe he would not have won a second term). Then the McCain debacle. He's been the one of best guys on the Democrat's side of the isle for years.

I'm about to burn my Republican voter card. It's going to be a conservative candidate or nothing. I've voted for my last RINO.

Until you RINOs finally get  it, and start acting and voting like Republicans, you will remain the minority party. We're not out here just to help you regain power. We're looking for a leader who will get the Federal Government back to operating under its Constitutional restraints and it's enumerated responsibilities again, and nothing more.


Conservatives Unite!  If you really want to make a difference in the next election the time is now to join the grassroots efforts underway to root out the socialists and find and support real conservative candidates, both on the State and National levels. 

Here's a couple of organizations you can join. There are lots more springing up around the country and on the internet. That's the beauty of a conservative movement; it builds from the ground up, not from the top down.  "Defeat Harry Reid"  End 'Anchor Baby' Citizenship for Illegals

Join Join the Patriotic, Resilient, Conservative Resistance.




I can no longer remain in GOP

Hear! Hear!  This is what I'be been saying.  No more RINOs.

The Truth can be 'Inconvenient'

House #1 A 20 room mansion (not including 8 bathrooms) heated by natural gas. Add on a pool (and a pool house) and a separate guest house, all heated by gas. In one month, this residence consumes more energy than the average American household does in a year. The average bill for electricity and natural gas runs over $2,400 per month. In natural gas alone, this property consumes more than 20 times the national average for an American home. This house is not situated in a Northern or Midwestern 'snow belt' area. It's in the South.

House #2 Designed by an architecture professor at a leading national university. This house incorporates every 'green' feature current home construction can provide. The house is 4,000 square feet (4 bedrooms) and is nestled on a high prairie in the American southwest. A central closet in the house holds geothermal heat-pumps drawing ground water through pipes sunk 300 feet into the ground. The water (usually 67 degrees F) heats the house in the Winter and cools it in the Summer. The system uses no fossil fuels, such as oil or natural gas, and it consumes one-quarter the electricity required for a conventional heating/cooling system. Rainwater from the roof is collected and funneled into a 25,000 gallon underground cistern. Wastewater from showers, sinks, and toilets goes into underground purifying tanks and then into the cistern. The collected water then irrigates the land surrounding the house. Surrounding flowers and shrubs native to the area enable the property to blend into the surrounding rural landscape.


HOUSE #1 is outside of Nashville , Tennessee ;
it is the residence of the 'environmentalist,' Al Gore.

HOUSE #2 is on a ranch near Crawford , Texas ;
it is the residence of former President,
George W. Bush.

'Inconvenient truth'? : Al Gore is a fraud

I sure hope this gets passed to everyone!

And, yes I DID check Snopes prior to posting it.
You can verify it at :

Congress Close on 'Cash for Clunkers'

Oh waaaa. I can't buy a new car now. It's not fair. They should include new cars, American built cars, Hybrid cars..  blah blah blah.
Why does everyone think they can't move unless it's instigated, supported or mandated by the government?
If you need a newer car buy one. There's a glut of excellent used cars sitting on thousands of lots around the country. If you must have NEW then buy one, although you'd have to either be wealthy or an idiot, in my opinion, to buy a new car off the showroom floor.
But in any case stop whining about it and stop looking for the government to solve all your problems for you.
FWIW, I drive a 19 year old American-assembled BMW (that I bought used in1997), and I plan to continue to do so because I love that car and I maintain it and it drives like a dream. I take it cross country any time I want.
I don't need the Federal government telling me when/if/or I need to replace it, and I sure as hell don't want their help when I do.

Why Rush is Wrong | Newsweek National News |

I held my nose and got through all 4 pages of this diatribe, but despite his laundry list of accomplishments, Frum seems to be clueless. He is wrong on so many points, but I don't have the hour it would take to rebut his list of complaints. Limbaugh is not the spokesperson for the GOP, despite Frum, BHO, et al's attempt to paint him that way. If more people listened to Rush maybe the GOP wouldn't be the minority party for the past 3 years! Rush embraces conservatism. That's not a party, that an ideology. Conservatism has not changed: Limited Federal gov't, strong defense, low taxes, individual freedom and liberty, opportunity, property rights. The GOP has been so busy trying to chase the "popular" center/left vote they forgot us. I've voted for my last RINO, Mr. Frum. Get over it. I don't have to follow the "New" Republican Party. They (and millions like me) have to follow me. If the GOP keeps following the advice of people like Frum, they'll remain the minority for another 40 years.  People like Frum will never understand that it's not that I agree with Rush Limbaugh. It's Rush agrees with me.

Why Rush is Wrong

The party of Buckley and Reagan is now bereft and dominated by the politics of Limbaugh. A conservative's lament.

Obama Birth Certificate - The Complete Story


Please join me and lend your support if you can spare a few bucks.
Don't you want Obama to have to prove he's an American citizen?
No kidding. He refuses to do so! He claims he posted his birth certificate online but that is NOT A BIRTH CERTIFICATE.
It is a certificate of "live birth", which is different, and does not even require that the live birth took place in Hawaii.
Why has he spent $800,000 fighting this?  What is he hiding?
Support the USJF Legal Fund
These questions must be resolved!

Dear Friends of the Constitution,

The biggest political cover up in American history
is taking place right before our eyes.

Worse than Watergate, Whitewatergate, or any of the other cover ups of previous administrations, is the question of whether Barack Hussein Obama is eligible to serve as President of the United States of America... OR, is he a FRAUD, a USURPER, a man with no legal authority to sit in the position that he now claims to hold?

Barack Obama could simply put the issue to rest right now by releasing his ACTUAL BIRTH CERTIFICATE! But he WON'T! Instead, he has had teams of attorneys all over the country, fighting "tooth and nail" to thwart the efforts of the United States Justice Foundation (USJF), and our allies in a number of states to compel him to produce an ACTUAL BIRTH CERTIFICATE and to prove that he is Constitutionally eligible to be President of the United States!


Ohio, Mississippi, Hawaii, and California! These are the states where USJF has been involved in lawsuits seeking an answer to the critical constitutional question!

And now in California, just like in every lawsuit filed over this issue, the Obama team of attorneys, working with liberal allies in the office of the California Attorney General's Office, has convinced a Sacramento County Superior Court judge to dismiss USJF's suit to force the truth to come out about whether Barack Obama is a "natural born" citizen, and therefore eligible to serve as President of the United States.

BUT WE'RE NOT GIVING UP! Our clients in this case, including 2008 candidate for President of the United States, Alan Keyes, have given USJF the go ahead to file an appeal of this decision!



A number of apologists for Barack Obama have gone to great lengths to belittle USJF and our allies in the fight to preserve our Constitution. However, the questions that they cannot answer are:

If Barack Hussein Obama has nothing to hide, WHY doesn't he just make his real birth certificate public? WHY has he spent a reported $800,000.00 in attorney fees to fight efforts to obtain his ACTUAL BIRTH CERTIFICATE? The more that he fights these efforts to see it, the more you have to wonder, WHY?

The Obama supporters want everyone to believe that only "fringies," the people that they now call "birthers,", in other words, only people that they claim are outside of the main stream of thinking, question whether Mr. Obama is eligible to serve as President. But the truth of the matter is that more and more people, including many federal, state, and local elected officials, AND many in the military, are questioning whether Barack Hussein Obama is a "natural born citizen," a requirement for him to serve as President of the United States.

The citizens of the United States have the right to know if Barack Obama is eligible to serve as President! And we here at the United States Justice Foundation are going to take our lawsuit all the way up to the United States Supreme Court, if that is what is necessary, to find out the answer to this critical question.

This fight to discover the truth will be neither easy nor inexpensive, but isn't protecting the Constitution worth it? And that is exactly what this legal battle is all about, PROTECTING THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION!


Barack Obama wants you to ignore what he is doing, he wants you to ignore the U.S. Constitution, he wants you to think that the parts of the Constitution that he does not agree with (like the requirements to serve as President) are unimportant.

In effect, he wants to destroy the U. S. Constitution and reshape it into his own image of what he wants it to be.

And Barack Obama's attorneys have now taken another big step to destroy the Constitution of the United States -- this time in a California State Court. Those attorneys, working with liberal California State Attorney General Jerry Brown, convinced the Judge in our case, at a March 13, 2009, hearing to rule that only Members of Congress can challenge the qualifications of Mr. Obama to serve as President.

And, the Judge further ruled that such a challenge could only be made on the 6th day of January following the meeting of the Presidential electors, at the session of Congress where the vote of the Electoral College is counted and the results announced. To use the Judge's words, this is "the exclusive means for challenges to the qualifications of President..."

That means that no one, except a Member of Congress, and only on one certain day of the year following the Presidential election, can challenge the qualifications of the President. And then, the challenge can only be successful if a majority of the Members of Congress support the challenge!

And that means that the requirements of the U. S. Constitution as to the eligibility of any man or woman who runs for President to serve as President are meaningless!

Do you believe that the Constitution is a meaningless document? Do you believe that a majority of the Members of Congress have the right to ignore it? To render it of no force and effect?

The Trial Court Judge in our case did! But we are not going to accept his decision. We are not going to accept the legal arguments made by Barack Hussein Obama's attorneys, and those by liberal California Attorney General Jerry Brown. We are going to keep fighting this monumentally important legal battle all the way up to the United States Supreme Court if that is what is necessary.






We MUST learn the truth about whether Barack Obama is a "natural born citizen!

But to blunt our efforts to learn the truth, the Trial Court also blocked our subpoena for the college records of Mr. Obama! These vital records could have proven whether Barack Hussein Obama is eligible to serve as President of the United States, or whether he is a USURPER, a FRAUD, sitting in the oval office without any legal authority to do so!

USJF had subpoenaed the records of Barack Hussein Obama from Occidental College in California, but, at the hearing on March 13, 2009, the Judge, in Sacramento County Superior Court in California, blocked USJF from obtaining those critical records.

What is in those records? We do not know. But the Obama legal team pulled out all of the stops to block the subpoena, so we believe that there is something in those records that bears on the critical issue of whether Barack Obama is eligible to serve as President of the United States.


There is no doubt in my mind that this e-mail may be the one of the most important documents that you ever read!

What you do after reading this e-mail may well determine the fate of the United States of America!

Please know that we are not saying that Barack Hussein Obama is not eligible to serve as President of the United States of America. The problem is we just do not know!

We do know that Barack Obama's maternal step-grandmother has proclaimed that she was present at his birth in Mombasa, in what is now Kenya, in Africa!

We do know that a fake birth certificate was put up on Obama's website!

We do know that Mr. Obama's legal team is doing everything that it can, in every case filed over this issue; to make sure that no one has access to his birth certificate.

We do know that Mr. Obama's legal team is doing everything that it can, in our California case; to make sure that no one has access to his college records.



The voters of the United States of America have the right to know whether Barack Obama is a "natural born citizen," as REQUIRED by the U. S. Constitution!

It's a question that MUST be answered!

Why? Because, if an unqualified person was elected to the Office of President of the United States, our entire form of government could be compromised!


Because, if Barack Hussein Obama is not eligible to serve as President of the United States, each and every act that he takes as President will be null and void! That's right, each bill that he signs into law, every Executive Order that he makes, and each and every one of his nominations to his Cabinet and to the federal courts will have no legal effect!

I don't make that statement lightly. It's not an exaggeration.

Article 2, Section 1, Clause 4 of the United States Constitution provides, in pertinent part, as follows: "No Person except a natural born Citizen... shall be eligible to the Office of President..."

That means that neither Osama Bin Laden, nor California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, nor Obama billionaire money man George Soros can serve as President of the United States. That also means that if Barack Obama was born outside of the United States, he is not eligible to serve as President of our great country!

So where was Mr. Obama born?

He claims to have a copy of his birth certificate. That means that either he knows where he was born, or he's lying about having that document.

And only Barack Hussein Obama's ACTUAL BIRTH CERTIFICATE can answer that question of where he was born. But he has teams of attorneys, all across the country, spending, and doing, whatever it takes to make sure that no one, and I mean NO ONE, will be allowed to see the one document that can clear up this controversy

Mr. Obama has claimed that his Presidential administration will be the most transparent in history. Yet, he will not make public the one document that could end all of the questions about the legitimacy of his election as President.


Is it because this is some unimportant "technicality"? No, a requirement of the U. S. Constitution is not a mere "technicality"!

Is it because "President" Obama (if he is the President of the United States) has more important issues to deal with, and can't spare the time to deal with such a trivial issue? No, what is more important than the integrity of the Office of the President?

Or, is there something more involved?

Another question that the Obamaphiles don't want to answer is why, according to a published report, in 2006, was a law firm with ties to Mr. Obama researching the question as to how to evade the requirements of Article II of the United States Constitution, regarding the requirements to serve as President. 2006? Two years before the Presidential campaign?

If that doesn't raise questions in your mind, then nothing will!

And then there's the statements made by representatives of the State of Hawaii!

According to Dr. Chiyome Fukino, of the State of Hawaii's Department of Health,

"Therefore, I as Director of Health for the State of Hawaii, along with the Registrar of Vital Statistics who has statutory authority to oversee and maintain these type of vital records, have personally seen and verified that the Hawaii State Department of Health has Sen. Obama's original birth certificate on record in accordance with state policies and procedures."

It is that very record that USJF financed lawsuits in Mississippi and in Hawaii were seeking to force into the public arena! But Obama's attorneys, and his allies in state government, stopped those efforts cold!

So, the time of decision is now!

Do we give up?

Do we just ignore this threat to our Constitution? To our very form of government?

We here at USJF say NO!

Now is not the time to give up this fight!

Now is not the time to walk away from the most important Constitutional battle in our lifetime!

Now is the time to redouble our efforts to find out the truth!

Now is the time to tell Barack Hussein Obama that the United States Constitution is more important than his political ambition!

But we can only do this with your help! With your financial support, and with the financial support of everyone that you know!


Will you stand with us?


Gary Kreep, Executive Director
United States Justice Foundation

P.S. This is the biggest political cover-up in American history! It would be so simple to release the documents to PROVE Obama is a natural-born citizen... IF THEY HAD THE DOCUMENTS!

Barack Hussein Obama thinks he can get awa with DUPING the American people and DESTROYING the U.S. Constitution. DON'T LET HIM DO IT!
