The following article was published in the Idaho Statesman, somewhat belatedly. The numbers we used were subsequently revised as new fiscal year estimates became available following 30 September. Beyond that, the opinion is reaffirmed. State government must reprioritize. The ensconced politicians claim they operate a “balanced” budget. They are not, not when the People bear the burden of increasing state public debts (which includes counties). CP-Idaho will continue to remain engaged.
As we close out 2014 and head into 2015, CP-Idaho executives wish to thank and congratulate our fellow Idahoans for their continued registration support. As of December 1, 2014, the Constitution Party of Idaho has expanded to 2,158 registered members across the state.
To put this in perspective, in December of 2011 our party had a mere 256 registered. CP-Idaho has enjoyed an affiliated expansion of 843% during the past three years. The increases in our registered members expanded once again at the polls in November 2014.
As may be seen in the chart and table accompanying this report, expansion of our membership has been broadly based, in Idaho’s urban areas and in its rural counties. [click on the images to enlarge.]
Our efforts now must be upon fund raising to refill our party treasury which was depleted in various literature printing drives during the summer and fall. With well over 2,000 Idahoans affiliated, even with a small contribution of $5 each, we can refill our literature funds.
Please consider CP-Idaho in your holiday giving this year. We are citizen led, and citizen financed. Because of that, we are not beholden to multinational corporations. We truly do represent the ordinary citizen. Help us continue our success in 2015. Even a little, if all of us gave a little together, will accomplish much. Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year.
For the past six years, Masseur Obama has been shopping his curriculum vitae around the world on the off chance that the internationals will consider him an actual leader…to no avail. Yet another foreign interview didn’t go all that well. We hazard the observation that it might very well have something to do with “leading from behind”…a resume deal breaking blunder if ever one was.
Masseur Obama is now something of a discouraged worker. Nobody’s buying it. Nobody. Not even the European socialists. Lame duck, we understand, is an oriental delicacy.
To be honest, the idea that Masseur Obama could be cast in the role of a serious leader has always been a farce…or rather, “a willing suspension of disbelief” as Madam Hillary Clinton once put it. Fewer and fewer theater goers are willing.
The production has been in trouble ever since it was first cast. Despite White House Studios bringing in esteemed scriptwriters (like Jonathan Gruber) to recreate dialog based upon “the stupidity of the American voter,” the box office is still deeply in the red. Again, nobody’s buying it.
Too often, when studios wager on an unknown producer—and Masseur Obama was certainly that—not every gamble pans out. Unfortunately, a lot of money—an additional $4 trillion in public debt—was poured into the production of “The Sun King”. Its remake is no better. And a general realization is slowly sinking in. It cannot be fixed. The actor was badly cast.
Sure, the production advertised transparent brilliance. But its concept never played well in Peoria, beyond the myopic smoke filled Hollywood studio boardrooms filled with cognac and Havana cigars. “The Sun King” was never ready for primetime.
Now the public is treated to the obligatory “face saving”…which is pushing a crutch under the wing and appealing to public sympathy for the hobbled duck. Unfortunately for White House Studios, audiences do not willingly suspend their disbelief and buy tickets based on sympathy for an impetuous actor stoned on arrogance.
Thus, great expectations will be “talked down” by the production’s public relations, a Dickensian technique to be sure. But the indisputable truth is: “The Sun King” will be pulled, albeit not soon enough. It is destined to the ranks of B-movies–those that should never have been made…like Millard Fillmore or Martin Van Buren.
As a macabre footnote on the absurd, the recent hissy fit spat over the interview with North Korea has been more entertaining than the actual film itself, in a jaded way. A pouting Masseur Obama was credited as saying “We cannot have a society in which some dictator some place can start imposing censorship here in the United States.” True enough. He prefers the monopoly.
Too rich, that. But then Hollywood celebrities have never been circumspect regarding their own hypocrisy and indecencies.
We begin this article with a heartfelt prayer that the true meaning of Christmas guides the heart and household of every American this Christmas Eve.
Christmas is more than the taking up of an ancient pagan holiday of Saturnalia (or, Natalis Solis Invicti) with its gifts and feasting and revelries in this material world. Christmas holds the promise of spiritual birth…which is, after everything is reduced, the only true guide star in mortality. That is called salvation; that is the meaning of Christmas.
Our comments must be qualified. Let us celebrate the true meaning of Christmas, while we are still at liberty to do so. For the times they are a’ changing.
On 30 October 2008, five days before the election which flushed him into office, Barrack Hussein Obama threatened that he would be “fundamentally transforming the United States of America.” His wife Michelle said it more bluntly, in May of 2008…“we’re going to have to change our traditions, our history; we’re going to have to move into a different place as a nation.” As far as we can tell, the pair has made good on their threats.
The tradition of Christmas, indeed Christianity itself, is under their assault. Apparently, it is to be changed, altered, revised, over-ridden by an avant-garde personality cult. Christmas has no place in Herod’s Brave New World. Too soon, we realize, following Christmas comes the spiritless void of greed for earthly power…this Massacre of the Innocents. Herod would have snuffed out Christmas newborn had he been able.
Obama is much like Herod—vainglorious, and “prepared to commit any crime, in order to gratify his unbounded ambition.” [1906 Jewish Encyclopedia]. America too is much like Rachel, foretold by the prophet Jeremiah, weeping for her children. They are no more.
Last year we were told that America’s troops and veterans have been reduced to food stamps—some 900,000 veterans from the news accounts. The Scrooge strangled “generosity” of Mr. and Mrs. Obama has clearly driven America into a different place as a nation…one greatly reduced, one submissive to imperial presidencies. I, Obama…
We were also told that even the word “Christmas” is now to be stricken from the U.S. Army. At Camp Shelby, Mississippi for example, US Army political commissars from a so-called Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute (DEOMI)—which is too close to “demon” to pass without notice—declared that the term Christmas must be replaced with “holiday”. A burlesque imitating Marxist-Leninist society. Political commissars (i.e. word police) informally lead such a state…one of constant surveillance, one of non-stop “re-education,” one that ever and always leads to that “different place” of totalitarianism.
Despite plausible denial being constantly mouthed by Herod Obama, his transformed America is now becoming bereft of tradition. It is being emptied of its heritage. This state is exactly what he seeks to build, Herod-like, as his legacy. Obama still has plans to fill it with something very “different”…to transform.
Our friend Mr. Todd Starnes of Fox News reported one soldier spoke on condition of anonymity, perhaps due to a fear which pervades our military over incurring retributions from the Herod-in-Chief: “Between the Air Force and the Army – it’s like they don’t like Christian values, they don’t like the word Christ or Christmas.”
“They’re treating Christmas like it’s pornography. As a matter of fact, the Army actually treats pornography better than it does Christmas,” Todd Starnes reported. That is indeed a very different place.
Much like Xi Jinping, party chief and president of the Communist Party of China, there will be, under Herod, a transformed America; one with a “tightly monitored state media”. It is an America which promotes only “core socialist values.” Sadly, in such a state, the true meaning of Christmas–its innocence–is a threat; it therefore must be exterminated.
Over the next two years in the death throes of Obama’s imperial reign, we anticipate that the fundamental transformation of America will quicken its pace….indeed the recent capitulation to communist Cuba indicates as much. Mr. Obama’s transformed America will mirror, in all probability, the final days of Herod. It will be filled with all manner of petty vengeance, despotic cruelty and mockery of those who “cling” to their Bibles. Like Herod, Obama intends to rid the land of any and all contenders against his legacy. He will do so at whatever costs to the innocent newly born, or those yet to be.
Even so, even so. There is love, the undiminished brilliance of Christmas’ promise…of salvation beyond our mortal existence. That is not something that Herod Obama has within his power to offer; he cannot use it as a bribe; it is not a currency he is capable of accumulating; or spending. Because of that, because it is beyond his ambitious personal grasp, Christmas is therefore something that he despises viscerally.
Yet there is a time for every purpose under Heaven. All Herod the Greats shall meet mortal fate. A thousand more deluded Herods, should they come, or a million more just like Obama, will each discover at the edge of eternity–when they meet it–that unbounded ambitions have mortal limits. This is undeniably true.
Thus, even if Christmas tradition be utterly banned from the face of this Earth, even if some new Herod sends out fresh minions and slays evermore innocents to prevent it, even so, even so, the Christmas Star will shine on in everlasting Eternity. And friends, that salvation is no less brilliant this evening over two millennia later than when it first shone upon the Holy Night to herald the birth of Jesus Christ…and that shall remain true whether all the Herods of Earth–past, present or future–willfully refuse its celestial guidance or not. Hallelujah.
We are told that Earth is surrounded be a newly discovered protective shield, Star-Trek-like, which protects the here below…a barrier against particle motion that exists some 7,600 miles above us in the Van Allen Belts.
Two doughnut shaped belts, laden with high energy electrons and protons, apparently block “killer electrons” from solar storms that move nearly at the speed of light. That’s comforting.
But then there is the astronomical public debt under the current solar storm called the Sun King Obama. That debt now surpasses $18 trillion. Too bad the astrophysicists cannot find something up there to protect us from anymore “killer elections”. Surely Mr. “I am the State” Obama’s massive public debt–which stands now at over 103% of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP)–is just as dangerous to America’s future.
Newsmax reports, to put it in perspective, that even considering debt to be 103% of the GPD does not do the actual debt justice. Some shady-hand shell games added “intangibles” to the GDP output. That jacked up the reported economic output, artificially. Otherwise, existing public debt would clear 106% of the (formerly calculated) GDP.
When the Sun King entered the Oval Office, public debt stood at $10.8 trillion…a staggering sum. Not to be out done, in the almost six-years of the Divine Rights President, public debt has left the field of gravity, well beyond the magnetic shield…perhaps even beyond the Solar System and maybe beyond the Milky Way itself. It is now at an altitude of over $18 trillion. And we’re not talking candy bars.
At this rate, just during Monarch Obama’s tenure (if his “from behind” occupancy merits being called a tenure), the public debt very likely will have doubled since “his abysmally incompetent Administration” began in January 2009, as John Hinderaker puts it (Powerline Blog). Some “legacy”.
Says Hinderaker, 41% of all US debt accrued since George Washington’s first day in office some 224 years ago has been piled up under just six years of Obama. A century of spending crammed into a six year political campaign tour.
To that, we appeal to the astrophysicists. Is there something to serve as a barrier to the near light speed debt motion being blasted into space by the Sun King? Anything?
