Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that the State Department played an instrumental role in “sealing the deal” for pop-rock star Lady Gaga to perform at a gay pride rally in Rome, Italy.
With 5 wars, the debt ceiling you would think that Hillary has more important issues...
The blogspot Ironicsurrealism confirms this news from ‘The Peoria Chronicle’ that has the eyewitness account from Paul Wilkinson, president of the Altamont Park Neighborhood Association:
Peorians living in fear: Tonight [June 25th, 2011], around 11 p.m., a group of at least 60-70 African American youth marched down one of the side streets (W. Thrush) to the 4 lane main drag (Sheridan). They were yelling threats to white residents. Things such as we need to kill all the white people around here. They were physically intimidating anyone calling for help from the police. They were surrounding cars. Cars on the main drag had to slam on their brakes to either avoid the youth blocking not only all four lanes, but a large section of the side street as well. fights were breaking out among them. They were rushing residents who looked out their doors, going on to porches, yelling threats to people calling the police for help.
Cars were doing U turns on the streets just to avoid the mob, mostly male. One youth stated his grandfather was white and several assaulted him on the spot. One police officer answered the call. The youth split into two large groups, one heading north, the other south. They were also yelling racial threats to the police officer but he was outnumbered. Another police car did not show up until after the youth finally dispersed and the patty wagon (van) also eventually showed up.
Residents are very shaken, both black and white alike. This is the fifth large mob action in about a month with smaller groups of 10-12 are out threatening children and adults a few evenings a week or later into the night. The times vary, even occuring during the day. In talking to the police officer, they are short staffed. Residents were advised to simply keep inside and to lock their doors. In other words buckle down, it’s not even safe to sit on your porch or go into your yards.

Remember New Black Panther Leader King Samir Shabazz? "You're going to have to kill some crackers. You're going to have to kill their babies." If you have forgotten that from last summer, when we joked about it on facebook, take another look here.

Getting the Balance Budget Amendment is a long process that will require passage by both chambers of congress, a presidential signature and ratification by at least 38 states.
Bad for stocks, good for bonds, could be outstanding for your children and grandchildren.
From the press release: House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) today issued the following statement regarding House consideration of a balanced budget amendment, H.J. Res. 1, sponsored by Congressman Bob Goodlatte:
“We are being asked by the Obama Administration to approve a debt limit increase. While President Obama inherited a bad economy, his overspending and failure to enact pro-growth policies have made it worse and now our national debt is currently more than $14 trillion. House Republicans have made clear that we will not agree to raise the debt limit without real spending cuts and binding budget process reforms to ensure that we don’t continue to max out the credit card. One option to ensure that we begin to get our fiscal house in order is a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution, and I expect to schedule such a measure for the House to consider during the week of July 25th. I have no doubt that my Republican colleagues will overwhelmingly support this common sense measure and I urge Democrats to as well in order to get our fiscal house in order."

The website, www2.newsadvance reports that
Virginia Lt. Governor, Bill Bolling said that Mitt Romney is the only Republican presidential candidate who can win in 2012, and that he will be chairman of Romney’s campaign in Virginia just as he was in 2008.
Bolling said its outcome “depends on how the economy performs” and that unless it improves, President Obama will have trouble carrying Virginia and winning re-election. Most of the potential GOP candidates “have a good story” to tell voters, Bolling said, but many of them can’t appeal to independent voters.
Only one Republican candidate can appeal to both the party’s base voters and to moderate and independent voters, “and that is Mitt Romney,” Bolling said.
Pilot Online reports that Ken Cuccinelli, Virginia's attorney general urged pastors and other church leaders to speak out politically, telling them that failure to do so concedes the battle over Christian values to "the other side."
"You can speak to any issue in America from the pulpit, full-throated, ears pinned back," Ken Cuccinelli told about 250 clergy at a "Christian Citizenship and Godly Government" breakfast an event sponsored by the Virginia Christian Alliance.
Donald Blake, chairman of the Richmond-based conservative organization, said Cuccinelli was invited to speak because church leaders are looking for assurance that they can talk about political issues without risking their tax-exempt status.
They can, Cuccinelli said, as long as they are careful to avoid explicitly endorsing or advocating the defeat of a candidate on behalf of the church. Pastors can endorse candidates personally as long as they make clear that their church affiliation is given just for identification purposes, he said.
Cuccinelli said it's common for Christians to think "politics is dirty" and avoid getting involved. When that happens, he said: "You just left the field to the other side."
"Pull out a map of Virginia and look where the abortion clinics are," Cuccinelli said. "That doesn't make you mad? You're a calmer person than I am. It makes me mad."

Bob McDonnell for VP? George Allen says yes.
Senate candidate George Allen has suggested the Republican Vice Presidential nominee should be Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell.
"Whomever the nominee is, I would hope they choose Bob McDonnell as their vice presidential candidate," Allen told NBC12 in a recent television interview.
During CPAC 2011, Tim Pawlenty met with Governor McDonnell for dinner and Pawlenty will be back in Richmond this Thursday for a fundraiser at the Bulls and Bears Club.
Will another meeting between McDonnell and TPaw be involved? I think so. What do you think?

If you viewed the video of Ann Coulter taking on Whoopi and Joy from my last eblast, you would have seen Coulter referencing Peter Ferrara. If you missed the video, here it is: http://www.youtube.com/v/ltLXQ13Ve_8?version=3

self-indulgence of Obamanomics, America is mortally vulnerable to another
recession at any time soon. The result would be precisely the national
bankruptcy of Greece, where we cannot raise in the world credit markets the
further debt to finance what will be well over half of our budgeted federal
spending. We are already borrowing and adding to the debt to finance 43% of our
federal spending today.
That is bad enough for a puny, insignificant nation like Greece, where riots increasingly leave the government dysfunctional, with the EU likely to take over the country effectively. But what is the effect when that happens to the world’s supposed superpower? America financed World War II by running up our national debt to its all-time record as a percent of GDP (for now). But that won’t be possible when we have already run ourselves into
Our potential military enemies will be quite aware of this historic vulnerability of America. Just as Reagan brought us Peace through Strength, Obamanomics will be inviting War through Weakness. With a 2013 American economic collapse that will also disable the entire West, the world’s uncivilized rogues from Russia, to China, to North Korea, to the Middle East Islamists dreaming of renewed world conquest, will all be tempted probably beyond resistance and reason to strike. They don’t need even to attack the homeland to deal America a decisive defeat. They can just decimate our suddenly overwhelmed allies, from Israel to South Korea to Taiwan to our allies in the Middle East, let alone some even in Europe.
The only way to get off this bullet train to oblivion is to radically reverse Obamanomics in dogged detail.
The American people get one more chance to do that in 2012.
2012 is not the last chance for America. It is the last chance for the planet – period.
If Obama, the Democrats and RINO traitors are allowed to completely
destroy the American economy, America’s multiple enemies will almost certainly
unite to wipe the United States of America and its few remaining allies off the
This isn’t about recession versus depression, this is about survival versus annihilation.
Once America falls, world totalitarian dictatorship will quickly follow. Civilization, as we know it will end.
Those are the stakes readers. Sorry to be so blunt and bleak, but that is what we are facing if Obama is not defeated, and the republic not turned around, in only a few short months time.
If Obama and his allies are not defeated in 2012, the West may possibly survive, but only by a miracle, not by our own efforts. We can all believe in miracles, but would you bet your child’s life on one? '

The website Haaretz, posted that Israel Radio reported Sunday that the US gave Netanyahu an ultimatum on renewing negotiations with the Palestinians. The ulimation is that Netanyahu has to decide within a month whether he agrees to accept Obama’s proposal and resume talks based on 1967 lines. Obama's proposal calls for negotiating over borders and security first, while deferring issues such as Jerusalem and the refugees until later.
'An Israeli source said the Americans were very frustrated with Netanyahu’s
behavior, feeling that he was impeding America’s efforts to keep the
Palestinians from unilaterally seeking UN recognition of a state in September.
Netanyahu’s personal envoy, Isaac Molho, spent last week in
Washington, where the Americans told Molho that to block European
initiatives such as France’s proposal for an international peace conference in
Paris, they must have something concrete to offer, like Netanyahu‘s agreement to
negotiate on the basis of Obama’s speech.
An Israeli source who maintains close ties with both senior U.S. officials and people close to Netanyahu said that Washington‘s frustration began with Netanyahu’s trip to Washington last month, when he publicly fought with Obama and then refused in an address to Congress to endorse the president’s outline for talks. The Americans
were now speaking very harshly of Netanyahu, said the source.
“He’s asking us to protect him in September, but he isn’t giving us any tools with
which to help him,” the source quoted one American official as saying. “Instead
of helping us, he’s making it harder for us.” As a result, American officials
complained, Obama was unable to get Britain and France to commit to opposing a
unilateral Palestinian move when he visited Europe last month.
European diplomats said Netanyahu’s speech to Congress was viewed in Europe as one long “no” and had thus increased European distrust of him. “We want to hear Netanyahu say he‘s willing to negotiate on the basis of Obama’s speech and that he’ll discuss borders based on the 1967 lines with land swaps,” said one diplomat.
Since the barren talks with Molho last week, the White House has been
upping the pressure on Netanyahu. On Friday, Steve Simon, who heads the U.S.
National Security Council’s Middle East desk, told American Jewish leaders that
Netanyahu needs to reply within a month to the U.S. proposal for restarting
talks. The White House knew this remark would both be conveyed to Netanyahu and leaked to the American and Israeli press, thus making its displeasure public.' Source: Haaretz.com

The new age of civility seems to be getting off to a rocky start. This video was brought to my attention and is both disturbing and a little shocking because I felt that even in Virginia there was still civility with in the political process, but I guess I was being optimistic.
This is from VA State Senator George Barker(39th district) public town hall meeting and just to clarify this is from his website:
Sen. Barker will be hosting a series of town hall meetings this month. For many, this will be the first time to meet your “new” Senator since legislative districts were re-drawn a few weeks ago. Joined by members of the General Assembly from both parties, Sen. Barker plans to address the 2011 legislative session, the budget, and redistricting, as well as any other topics constituents wish to discuss. All of the events are free and open to the public.
So here is what Sen. Barker considers a "public town hall meeting":

According to AIPAC:
The movie, '33 Minutes' from the Heritage Foundation, exposes the life-threatening myths about defending America from missile attack. Iran and 33 Minutes exposes the life-threatening myths about defending America from missile attack. Iran and Syria's recent events indicate that America's enemies are working as diligently as ever to advance and test their ballistic missile capabilities.
"The illicit nuclear activities of Syria and Iran took center stage at the
International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) board of governors meeting, which began last Monday in Vienna, Agence France Presse reported.
IAEA chief Yukiya Amano defended his decision to release a new report which concludes that a Syrian site destroyed in September 2007 was "very likely" an undeclared nuclear reactor.
Regarding Iran, Amano said the IAEA has reason to believe that the Islamic Republic's nuclear program has possible military dimensions. Iran has ignored multiple U.N. Security Council demands that it stop enriching uranium – a key step toward building a nuclear bomb."

With a debt over 14 Trillion dollars, yes I said 14 Trillion, Now 14 Trillion looks like this… $14,000,000,000,000, leaves you with the question “Where do you start?” In my humble opinion you start with the Federal Tax Code. The KEY to taking back our country is getting control of our money.
Tackling the Federal Tax Code is actually very simple. You SCRAP the existing system. The current Federal Tax Code is over 64,000 pages thick and is full of corruption and it needs to be REPLACED with a new Federal Tax Code that I believe should be what is commonly known as a Value Added Tax (VAT). I prefer to call it what it is a National Sales Tax. Now this is not a new idea but I believe it could be the answer to our dysfunctional tax code.
The National Sales Tax will replace ALL Federal Taxes, Fees and any revenue enhancement programs excluding Social Security and Medicare/Medicaid. Social Security and Medicare/Medicaid has to be addressed separately which I will go into at another time.
So how will this National Sales Tax work?
The National Sale Tax
The National Sales Tax (NST) should have a range between 1% to 5% at the point of sale with NO EXCEPTIONS and NO EXCLUSIONS. I suggest a 5% NST. For example let’s use that ear of corn you just bought at the grocery store as an example.
When the Farmer bought the seed, fertilizer, herbicide, etc. that he would need to plant his corn crop he would pay a 5% NST.
After the corn is harvested the Wholesaler would pay a 5% NST on the Farmer’s corn crop.
When the Grocery Store Chain buy’s a supply of corn from the Wholesaler they would pay a 5% NST.
That ear of corn you picked out in the produce section of the Grocery Store you will pay a 5% NST.
Of course all the NST paid by the Farmer, Wholesaler and Grocery Store Chain may be included in the price you pay for that ear of corn. You may ask, “Is that right?” The answer is yes.
All of the actual or estimated taxes that the Farmer, Wholesaler and Grocery Store Chain will pay under the current Federal Tax Code are included in the price of that ear of corn. So nothing will change when it comes to passing the cost of doing business.
What will the NST apply to?
The NST applies to all aspects of the U.S. economy. Which means it will apply to agriculture, industry, finance, service, investments, energy, etc., remember I said NO EXCEPTIONS and NO EXCLUSIONS. For example it will apply to Houses, Cars, Bubble Gum, Insurance Policy’s, Lawyer Fees, Gasoline, Food, Medicine, Stocks, Doctor Bill’s, etc. Do you get the picture now?
What is the advantage of the NST over a Flat Tax or the Fair Tax?
As stated above the NST will not exceed 5% at all levels of purchase and applies to all sales without exception. Your income is NOT TAXED!
The Flat Tax of 10% to 20%, which ever rate they decide on will still tax your income and require you to file a return every year just like you do now. Most if not all of the exceptions are eliminated. Check the following link for more information.
The Fair Tax resembles the NST because it does tax you when you buy something. The problem with the Fair Tax is that it will tax you about 25% at the retail level and will have some exceptions and exclusions. Check the following link for more information.
How do we keep Congress from raising the NST rate or creating new taxes?
We all know that Congress will do their best to raise the NST rate or will create new taxes weather we like it or not so they can spend more money on their pet projects. How do we stop it? It will take a Constitutional Amendment to guarantee that Congress will not pervert the NST.
What will this Constitutional Amendment look like?
1. Repeal the 16th Amendment.
2. The NST will not exceed 5% without a National Referendum. There are two exceptions to this rule.
Exception 1: In case of a Natural Disaster Congress can enact up to a 1% increase in the NST above the 5% limit until either the public infrastructure that was damaged is replaced and paid for or it is approved by the voters on the next first Tuesday in November in a National Referendum with 60% of the vote or more.
Exception 2: In case of a Declared War by Congress, Congress can enact up to a 1% increase in the NST above the 5% limit until either the War is over and paid for or it is approved by the voters on the next first Tuesday in November in a National Referendum with 60% of the vote or more.
3. Congress CANNOT increase the NST above 5% without the prior approval of the public through a National Referendum requiring 60% of the vote or more. All increases will be limited to 1% without exception.
4. Any increase in the NST above the 5% limit CANNOT exceed 5 years. The public must re-approve the previous NST increase in a National Referendum requiring 60% of the vote or more.
5. The President will have the power of a Budget Line-Item-Veto.
6. Congress MUST maintain a Balanced Budget.
7. All Budget Deficits must be balanced with Spending Cuts.
8. All Budget Surpluses must be applied to the National Debt or in case the National Debt has been paid then it must be refunded to the citizens (above 18 years old) of the United States of America equally.
This new Constitutional Amendment if passed will Fundamentally Change the way our Federal Government works. It will literally take most of the power of taxation away from Congress and give it back to “The People”. Think about that for a minute. You will through a “National Referendum” for the first time in our history have control over your tax money.
I firmly believe that this proposed Federal Tax Code will bring in the revenue to help balance our budget along with spending cuts. I also believe that this new Federal Tax Code will allow business's to bring manufactoring back to the USA!
We must elect people who will truly reform our Federal Government.
