The Darker Issues Beneath the Surface 


 
"A lie told often enough becomes the truth." 

This page is a portal to hidden Congressional agendas, power grabs and denials within our government and the politics that generate our laws, regulations and appointments.   This area is really for only those serious about understanding the deeper influences at work.  This is a work-in-process.  Expect changes and additions!

At the deepest levels of Congressional motivation is campaign financing.  Many observers contend that the first order of business for elected congressmen is re-election.  Within the escalating polarization of the political scene decisions are being made for re-election, dogma, personal power, the benefit of financial supporters and, at the bottom of the list, the benefit of the nation.  Congressmen are being openly coerced on the house floor to vote along party dictates or face diminished re-election funding.  With the changes made under the guise of “campaign finance reform” the various political parties are now controlling the re-election purse strings.  “He/she who has the gold, rules.” 

A brief explanation of campaign finance is available from Wikipedia . However, whatever attempts to control campaign financing that were in place was swept away by the Supreme Court last year.  “In early 2010, the United States Supreme Court ruled in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission that corporate funding of independent political broadcasts in candidate elections cannot be limited pursuant to the right of these entities to free speech.” 

So, how do these agendas work their way into legislation?
Here are just 2 current examples.

Secret White House Power Grab Hidden in the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2011.

On December 10, 2010 I wrote a warning about S.3454 -  The media only wrote about the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell aspects of this bill and totally ignored Section (815)  Basically, it empowered two people in the DoD to decide that a company poses “an unacceptable supply chain risk” and then block that company from being awarded contracts. Two persons - exempt from disclosure or review under the Freedom of Information Act or review by any branch of the government. Fortunately, the notorious Section 815 was removed in the final bill, H.R. 6523. However, we must ask ourselves and our political leadership just WHO attempted to include this outrageous power grabbing, closed door procedure!

Blocking Funding for Abortions.  Is there more to this bill?

Oh, Yes...  H.R. 3 includes new language that can affect every individual far beyond the abortion issue.  Portions of this bill can effect how any of us may financially support or lobby for various causes from collective bargaining to firearm ownership.  For details and a great video with explanations beyond what can be included here. 
See Inside HR3

Here are 2 specific examples of Misinformation and Denial.
     Congressional reactions to the U.S. debt and our shaky position in the world make ugly bed fellows creating political posturing and denial of threats being created to the American way of life.

Budget and Social Security – Is Social Security broke? 

No Way If the government doesn’t honor its obligations to SSA it will be in default on its bonds.  These are bonds being held by the American people.  Do you think that the government would default on bonds being held by communist China?
 See SSA Is Not Broke!  

Is Our nation at Risk of Financial Terrorism?

The Signs are There! Read a declassified report outlining how several foreign nations are seeking to destroy the value of the American dollar and how they may have been directly involved in the creation or escalation of the 2008 financial crisis.  See Financial Terrorism.

"Entitlements" Undermine  Remedying National Problems
A Major, Serious Underlying Cultural Problem!

The Hidden Saboteur! Politicians talk about it but not all of it.  There is far more than just Social Security!  Dozens of constituency groups fight to hold their special advantages. From the "Top !%" to teachers to unions to law enforcement to minorities to illegal immigrants and, of course, politicians - everyone feels they should be given special consideration and advantages to advance their position and/or protect their special advantages!    (Entitlements)
