The New Mafia In America

September 25, 2011

After watching the committee meeting yesterday with Solyndra’s management pleading the fifth amendment after each question asked of them I was sicken as I realized for the first time in my life the new Mafia has arrived in America. This new Mafia doesn’t carry the Tommy guns of yesteryear, nor do they bomb the restaurant owner or the grocery stores who oppose extortion tactics, what they do is far worse.

Though they may not be packing the heat like the thugs of yesteryear they are just as dangerous to the American Citizens.  The mob figures of the 20’s, 30’s and 40’s don’t hold a candle to those who now are the featured thugs of the new millennium.  Capone, Moran, Morelli, Pollizzi, even our own Bugsy Siegel in Las Vegas Nevada committed atrocities that scarred our city and towns; however they faded into the abyss as agents put them out of business. No such fate for this new Mafia, the agents of today refuse to touch them, they fear for their lives and those of their families unlike the Elliot Ness’s who dedicated careers to eliminating the criminal activities of these mobsters.

These members of the new Mafia look similar to you and I as they walk our streets and drive through our towns and cities, smiling and greeting individuals as they go and promising the world to those folks who would believe in their words.  These newest members of this Mafia who have infiltrated the soils of our nation can include members of Congress, Czars, and Cabinet members to the President, along with the President himself.

As we look back in history we can observe the patterns evolving as our politicians began to change the course of our nation through the same tactics used by syndicates all across America.  The mob sent figures into a grocery store to inform the owner they were in need of insurance, protection money so they wouldn’t have unimaginable disasters happen.  Today our politicians extort trillions of dollars from taxpaying citizens for items they don’t need nor want, like the solar panels of Solyndra.  If we don’t agree the mob is sent out to make life miserable for those who question their reasoning in way of tax audits, background checks into personal business or habits by Police, FBI or CIA agents.

Harry Reid and is band of minions continually threaten those who oppose him regardless of affiliation.  During the last debate with Sharron Angle his closing statement was ”  I am a fighter. I will continue to fight for what I believe is best for the American people. We have a long ways to go. But we have made some progress, and I’ll continue to do everything I can for the people of Nevada.” Get it, his statement wasn’t I will fight  for what my constituents believe in, it was I will continue to fight for what “I believe in”.

The Tea Party Patriots decided to stand up against unfair taxation policies prevalent in Congress today and were castigated as right-wing nuts, “Astroturf” Nazi’s and the list goes on and on and on. These members are not nuts or radicals, they are Americans who love their country and hate the politics that have eroded the quality of living for all citizens of this great nation. They are Democrats, Republicans, Libertarians, Independents, Conservatives and yes some liberals. Americans who felt strongly against the policies enacted by Congress.

Public sector unions created two classes of people. Those who get benefits for practically nothing and those who have to pay not only for their own benefits but those of the public sector union members too. These unions main goal was growth with the intent of raising money through dues to fill the coffers of those politicians willing to enact laws detrimental to the future of this country but not the unions.

The public sector union employees received benefits that no member of the private sector could ever imagine. Those public servants (politicians) working for all Americans somehow pulled the wool over our eyes and created a Mafia hierarchy that has devastated this nation.

Our elected officials offer or are offered payoffs and payouts in order to remain in power such as the mob syndicates had done for so many years creating power and wealth from illegal or unethical activities.  Our President allegedly helped in the funding of 554 million dollars to Solyndra, a company that never should have received one dime of taxpayer’s money as auditors would attest to today. He didn’t do this for the good of the country, he did it to push his green technology ideology on all Americans, insisting America needs this green technology such as the thugs preying on store owners back in the day.

This President as well as his predecessor  gave billions in stimulus money to GM and Chrysler to overt bankruptcy as reported by Obama after which he did pressure the industry to use the bankruptcy code and had taking away the investors 1st right of ownership only to handout billions to the union pensions as a blatant payoff for those unions help to get him elected with contributions in the millions to his Presidential campaign.

President Bush, our 43rd President appears to have offered Congress free rein if they would allow him to invade Iraq and Afghanistan. As the wars continued so too did the uncontrollable spending habits to the tune of a 4.8 trillion dollar increase to the national debt over his two terms as President.  President Obama will be considered the biggest spending in the history of our country as he is on track to add more than 6 trillion dollars to our national debt by the end of his first term.

No political party is exempt from this mob mentality as all parties have members using fear and divisiveness to drive their desires to get what they want.  This new Mafia must be stopped if we are to survive as a nation.  We must eradicate this venom from the Halls of Congress as quickly as we can or we will cease to be the Greatest Nation the World has ever known.

The problems we face in this country are not those of the Democrats, Republicans, Libertarians nor of the Independents. The problems we face are the problems of all Americans, regardless of race, creed or color.  We must unite as one to fight those mafia rulers to return our freedoms to the individuals.  We must inform Congress they no longer can pass laws which are unconstitutional.  We must stand together to return Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness back to our nation as written so many years ago. Together we can be the voice of America, for the good of America. Patriots one and all!


4th of July

July 3, 2011

I want to take this time to wish everyone a safe and healthy 4th of July.  Throughout the history of this great nation we have celebrated this day as Independence Day.  The day we claimed our country as our own against all odds according to history.  Yes a rag-tag band of brothers united to fight for a land they believed in.   After the Revolution we would unite as THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

As we grew into a nation our Constitution gave each individual unalienable rights that no government could take away.  The Founding Fathers reflected on writings which included John Locke to create a nation that would protect individuals from unnecessary intrusion.  Our forefathers wrote a Constitution that has withstood the test of time while constantly being challenged.

Thank you to all who have fought for our nation to protect her borders and her citizens from foreign invasion.  Both past and present Patriots have played a role in our nations history keeping alive the visions of those who formed this great nation.  Let’s hope we continue to remember our Constitution and our nation are second to none.  Be proud to be an American for no other nation in the world will fight for your god given rights as this nation will.

Have a splendid 4th of July with family, friends and military.  Bless each and every Patriot.


Truth is Relevant

February 25, 2011

Today while discussing the issues of our Country with my exterminator we talked about what is happening in Wisconsin.  I brought up how unions worked for the people in the beginning when the greed and corruption of the business owner was more important than the worker’s health and safety.

The debate went on as we skimmed a broad range of subjects concerning the money and power the unions, politicians and churches wield. Today instead of working for the people these entities just described are more concerned with how much money and power they gain through those they are supposedly helping.

The unions are not there for the people any longer, they are there for the political clout to fund campaigns to elect those who will work towards the goals of the union not necessarily of the members.  The politicians will work to pass legislation for those who give them money to win their next campaign, not necessarily those they are elected to represent.  The churches are collecting donations to build million dollar churches, funding projects they feel are needed, not necessarily what their congregation may believe needs to be addressed.

My exterminator stated he goes to church and what upsets him more than anything is the church will not talk about the truth in fear of losing their funding.  He went on to say when the preacher preaches the sermon is generic in scope.  He wants to hear the truth of what is happening in our cities, in our states, and in our country.  He wants to know the preacher is in tune with issues that are relevant to each citizen as we grow and prosper as we deem fit.

The truth is relevant regardless of who you are, what you do or where you live.  What is happening across the country will affect each of us at some point in time.  We have asked everyone in this nation who is listening to be vigilant and be in the know on issues that should concern you.  Knowledge is power and can not be taken from you once you have it so learn about the issues that work for our country.  Learn about the issues that erode the quality of life here in America and abroad.  Your voice is your power, use it to express your thoughts and concerns to all who will listen.


Compromise Would Surely Help The Situation!

December 9, 2010

Here we go again, those folks in DC. are at it again.  President Obama extends tax cuts for 2 years because Republicans were holding the American people hostage.   His words not mine, hostage.  I applaud the fact he extended the infamous olive branch to work on a deal that will keep the government functioning through the lame duck session.

However, it appears as if the ultra liberals are furious with his decision. All day on the news they bashed him  as too weak,  no backbone, caving in to the rich, and not the President we elected that was going to raise taxes on the rich.  He has divided his base once again and why?  He made concessions to try to do the right thing.

As we have stated numerously on the Patriot Express Radio show “we don’t need more taxes, we need less spending.” ” We need a government that will work to cut the fraud and waste in every entity of our bureaucracies across the nation.”  Stop the waste and we reign in the uncontrolled deficit spending.

I was talking to a retired military pilot today who said he once believed in the balanced budget amendment but now he is against it. He wants to have the military a separate budget so they get the funding they need without cuts that will weaken our defense.  I asked him how long he served for a barometer of the depth of knowledge he had on military spending.

He was a fighter pilot for 23 years. I asked if he saw any fraud or waste in his 23 years there?  He stated he saw the 500 dollar hammers and the waste. As a matter of fact he stated “I was told to take my jet out for a four-hour flight anywhere with a tanker following me on several occasion. ”

I stated I have friends that were in Viet Nam where every month new supplies would be flown in only to be placed in the middle of a field to be blown away by a few explosives from the tanks on base. This happened and is still happening today so the military doesn’t loss their budget.

The conversation went on and I explained on paper that approach looked good but the problem is the military has to spend the funds appropriated each budget or they lose it the next time around. We need to make sure the budget is never cut even when a surplus exists at the end of the fiscal year.  The military protects our borders and we need the strongest and the best with no compromising on their needs.

The issue isn’t increasing our taxes to pay for things our Representatives want, the issue is to cut the fraud and waste so we spend our tax dollars wisely as a CEO of any business would or should be doing to spend what they need and ultimately make a profit.  Our Congress spends the money then taxes the individuals and Corporations without having strict guidelines or rules on how to spend the money more efficiently.

We can balance the budget without raising taxes if the American Citizens would go to the polls and vote for individuals that will represent their wishes and not those of special interest. Remember your vote counts each election.  By not voting you’re allowing those in power to remain in power. We can do better.
