The Cincinnati Tea Party Defends “Fiscal Reponsibility”: Republicans attempt to become “compassionate conservatives” by copying Obama

Kasichcare16-300x225The Cincinnati Tea Party took the hard stand of protesting Governor Kasich’s open acceptance of Obamacare by expanding Medicaid with heavy hearts, but wild ambition.  Many traditional political pundits and strategists are not sure what to make of such an aggressive stand against what many thought was a Tea Party Governor.  It was the Tea Party that put Kasich over the top of Ted Strickland in 2010 yet within just two years Kasich has shown a desire to take yet more government handouts from the federal government which erodes away state sovereignty under the 10th Amendment, and openly ignores the Healthcare Freedom Amendment that was passed in Ohio protecting all state residents from Obamacare.  Republicans who many believe are behind the Tea Party movement are rather baffled to see Tea Party members treating them with the same aggressive vigor as they have progressive Democratic candidates.  Yet when the Tea Party says it demands fiscal responsibility, free markets, and limited government, they mean it no matter who the perpetrator is or what political affiliation is next to their name.Kasichcare21-300x225

To understand why and how the game is played between the federal government and state governments view this video done by members of The Cincinnati Tea Party.  The basic essence behind Kasich’s expansion of Medicaid can be explained in the video.

Below is the link to the article from The Cincinnati Tea Party website where pictures of the event can be seen.

Kasichcare13-300x225In a video from Channel 5 seen at one of the links below the camera ended on the face of Bill Cunningham of 700 WLW who at one time considered himself a “libertarian,” even a “conservative,” but nearly single-handedly undermined his friend John Kasich in the famous Senate Bill 5 election.  Cunningham learned then what Kasich is learning now, that they are both the kinds of politicians and media personalities who have taken the country to the brink of fiscal collapse.Kasichcare20-225x300  It is people like them who give Obama power, and federal influence over a state like Ohio.  When Cunningham said on the day after this rally on his radio show, “who wouldn’t take federal money if it helped to balance the budget.”  Well the answer is, Tea Party supporters wouldn’t, which is why they were protesting outside when the real culprits were inside patting themselves on the back.  If Kasich wants to be “compassionate” then let him give all his money to the poor, but don’t demand that everybody else has to throw some of their money in the pot of Ohio.  That is no different from what Obama does—and they are both wrong.

Under the new definitions of politics that The Cincinnati Tea Party is beginning to define it is not “compassionate” to steal other people’s money to redistribute to others, which is what Medicaid does and what the expansion of it will achieve.  John Kasich is not a “compassionate conservative” because he’s reaching out to the poor, and downtrodden.  It simply makes him a thief who sought a way to circumnavigate the Health Care Freedom Amendment with the expansion of a giant federal program with socialist tendencies in Medicaid.  The Tea Party does not exist to run for office or control a political party.  Kasichcare23-300x225It exists for one reason, to maintain fiscal responsibility, demand limited government, and maintain free markets in America.  Everything else is the workings of politicians who wish to make their marks on history by stealing from others so that they can buy votes with other people’s effort. As can be seen easily, the John Kasich seen at the video below and the Kasich seen at any of the links following the video are different people. Go ahead…………look for yourself.

And a side note to Ann………………I’m proud of you!  Nice job!

What If All Illegal Aliens Left America: Real numbers behind all the emotion

The letter below was written by Tina Griego and was passed on to me by a reader here at Overmanwarrior’s Wisdom.   Enjoy!

What if 20 Million Illegal Aliens Vacated America?

I, Tina Griego, journalist for the Denver Rocky Mountain News wrote a column titled, “Mexican Visitor’s Lament.”  I interviewed Mexican journalist Evangelina Hernandez while visiting Denver last week. Hernandez said, “Illegal aliens pay rent, buy groceries, buy clothes. What happens to your country’s economy if 20 million people go away?” 
Hmmm, I thought, what would happen?

So I did my due diligence, buried my nose as a reporter into the FACTS I found below.

It’s a good question, it deserves an honest answer. Over 80% of Americans demand secured borders and illegal migration stopped. But what would happen if all 20 million or more vacated America? The answers I found may surprise you!

In California, if 3.5 million illegal aliens moved back to Mexico, it would leave an extra $10.2 billion to spend on overloaded school systems, bankrupt hospitals and overrun prisons. It would leave highways cleaner, safer and less congested. Everyone could understand one another as English became the dominant language again.

In Colorado, 500,000 illegal migrants, plus their 300,000 kids and grandchilds would move back “home,” mostly to Mexico. That would save Colorado an estimated $2 billion (other experts say $7 billion) annually in taxes that pay for schooling, medical, social-services and incarceration costs. It means 12,000 gang members would vanish out of Denver alone.

Colorado would save more than $20 million in prison costs, and the terror that those 7,300 alien criminals set upon local citizens. Denver Officer Don Young and hundreds of Colorado victims would not have suffered death, accidents, rapes and other crimes by illegals.

Denver Public Schools would not suffer a 67% dropout/flunk rate because of thousands of illegal alien students speaking 41 different languages. At least 200,000 vehicles would vanish from our gridlocked cities in Colorado. Denver’s 4% unemployment rate would vanish as our working poor would gain jobs at a living wage.

In Florida, 1.5 million illegals would return the Sunshine State back to America, the rule of law, and English.

In Chicago, Illinois, 2.1 million illegals would free up hospitals, schools, prisons and highways for a safer, cleaner and more crime-free experience.

If 20 million illegal aliens returned ‘home,’ the U.S. Economy would return to the rule of law. Employers would hire legal American citizens at a living wage. Everyone would pay their fair share of taxes because they wouldn’t be working off the books. That would result in an additional $401 Billion in IRS income taxes collected annually, and an equal amount for local, state and city coffers.

No more push ‘1’ for Spanish or ‘2’ for English. No more confusion in American schools that now must contend with over 100 languages that degrade the educational system for American kids. Our overcrowded schools would lose more than two million illegal alien kids at a cost of billions in ESL and free breakfasts and lunches.

We would lose 500,000 illegal criminal alien inmates at a cost of more than $1.6 billion annually. That includes 15,000 MS-13 gang members who distribute $130 billion in drugs annually would vacate our country.

In cities like L.A., 20,000 members of the ’18th Street Gang’ would vanish from our nation. No more Mexican forgery gangs for ID theft from Americans! No more foreign rapists and child molesters!

Losing more than 20 million people would clear up our crowded highways and gridlock. Cleaner air and less drinking and driving American deaths by illegal aliens!

America’s economy is drained. Taxpayers are harmed. Employers get rich. Over $80 billion annually wouldn’t return to the aliens’ home countries by cash transfers. Illegal migrants earned half that money untaxed, which further drains America’s economy which currently suffers an $8.7 trillion debt. $8.7 trillion debt !!At least 400,000 anchor babies would not be born in our country, costing us $109 billion per year per cycle. At least 86 hospitals in California, Georgia and Florida would still be operating instead of being bankrupt out of existence because illegals pay nothing via the EMTOLA Act.

Americans wouldn’t suffer thousands of TB and hepatitis cases rampant in our country-brought in by illegals unscreened at our borders.

Our cities would see 20 million less people driving, polluting and grid locking our cities. It would also put the ‘progressives’ on the horns of a dilemma; illegal aliens and their families cause 11% of our greenhouse gases.

Over one million of Mexico’s poorest citizens now live inside and along our border from Brownsville, Texas to San Diego, California in what the New York Times called, ‘colonias’ or new neighborhoods. Trouble is, those living areas resemble Bombay and Calcutta where grinding poverty, filth, diseases, drugs, crimes, no sanitation and worse. They live without sewage, clean water, streets, roads, electricity, or any kind of sanitation.

The New York Times reported them to be America’s new ‘Third World’ inside our own country. Within 20 years, at their current growth rate, they expect 20 million residents of those colonias. (I’ve seen them personally inTexas and Arizona; it’s sickening beyond anything you can imagine.)

By enforcing our laws, we could repatriate them back to Mexico. We should invite 20 million aliens to go home, fix their own countries and/or make a better life in Mexico. We already invite a million people into our country legally more than all other countries combined annually. We cannot and must not allow anarchy at our borders, more anarchy within our borders and growing lawlessness at every level in our nation


It’s time to stand up for our country, our culture, our civilization and our way of life.

Interesting Statistics!

Here are 14 reasons illegal aliens should vacate America, and I hope they are forwarded over and over again until they are read so many times that the reader gets sick of reading them:

1. $14 billion to $22 billion dollars are spent each year on welfare to illegal aliens (that’s Billion with a ‘B’)

3. $7.5 billion dollars are spent each year on Medicaid for illegal aliens.<>

4. $12 billion dollars are spent each year on primary and secondary school education for children here illegally and they still cannot speak a word of English!<>

5. $27 billion dollars are spent each year for education for the American-born children of illegal aliens, known as anchor babies.<>

6. $3 Million Dollars ‘PER DAY’ is spent to incarcerate illegal aliens. That’s $1.2 Billion a year.<>

7. 28% percent of all federal prison inmates are illegal aliens.<>

8. $190 billion dollars are spent each year on illegal aliens for welfare & social services by the American taxpayers.<>

9. $200 billion dollars per year in suppressed American wages are caused by the illegal aliens.

10. The illegal aliens in the United States have a crime rate that’s two and a half times that of white non-illegal aliens. In particular, their children, are going to make a huge additional crime problem in the US.<>

11. During the year 2005, there were 8 to 10 MILLION illegal aliens that crossed our southern border with as many as 19,500 illegal aliens from other terrorist countries. Over 10,000 of those were middle-eastern terrorists. Millions of pounds of drugs, cocaine, meth, heroin, crack, guns, and marijuana crossed into the U.S. from the southern border

12. The National Policy Institute, estimates that the total cost of mass deportation would be between $206 and $230 billion, or an average cost of between $41 and $46 billion annually over a five year period and nbsp;<>

13. In 2006, illegal aliens sent home $65 BILLION in remittances back to their countries of origin, to their families and friends.<>

        14. The dark side of illegal immigration: nearly one million sex crimes are committed by illegal immigrants in the United States!

Total cost a whopping $538.3 BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR!

A Modern Thomas Paine: The way a letter to politicians should be written

The letter below is from the website of The Cincinnati Tea Party.  CLICK HERE TO VISIT.  This is the way to write a letter to politicians. 

One of our members has drafted a truly great letter to our local rep. Please read it and if so moved, copy and tweak it for your use. We truly have a modern-day Thomas Paine in our midst.

Dear Brad,

As I began to react to my immense disappointment in the absence of your commitment to Rep. Bridenstine’s effort to defund Obamacare, it struck me how intrusive this legislation has been in my life and everyone copied above. For the last four years, life has revolved around this monster. I made four trips to DC and was in the Capital when it passed. Three weeks later, I found myself in UC’s Neuroscience ICU following my husband’s brain injury declining trauma research participation for fear the data could compromise his level of care. My fellow Ohioans spent thousands of hours and dollars to pass the Healthcare Freedom Amendment by 66%. The 2nd District liberty grassroots committed to your candidacy to replace Jean Schmidt due to her willfully serving as a puppet for the RINOs in leadership and failing to represent us on this issue. Now we must spend more hours of our family time beating back the tentacle of Medicaid expansion due to the unprincipled action of Governor Kasich and I’m spending inordinate amounts of time tending to the enormous regulations put upon small businesses along with the 40% premium increase. All the while, the power to stop this has existed in the House, the GOP Majority House, since January 2011. This could have ended long ago if John Boehner would have led the 2010 grassroots elected members in that direction instead of capitulating to Obama and playing politics. His continued denial of our existence speaks volumns of his lack of character.

Rep Bridenstine summed it up best when asked about the effort,”if you’re going to make an offer, you better be prepared to walk away from the table”. I couldn’t agree more. This nonsense about the destruction to the GOP if they are blamed for a government shutdown is a joke.  Newsflash, the bomb has detonated. If any republican wants to survive the fallout, they better be ready to take the bold, conservative stance to defund Obamacare. The excuse that it won’t pass the Senate is just that, an excuse. Do the work of the House of Appropriations, period. Essential services continue under a shutdown. Most of us remember the shutdowns under Reagan and Clinton, and more importantly we remember that our lives and families never felt threatened. How is it that now we feel threatened when the federal government is operating as usual? It would be funny if it weren’t so heartbreaking. I find myself making every financial, actually every decision considering the reach and hand of government. The reality is we are well down the road to serfdom. We don’t even think like free people anymore.

Please remember you are a Representative of the 2nd District and only the 2nd District. We will not accept rationalization for any funding for Obamacare appropriated in the next CR or any other master plan of the abysmal GOP leadership and their henchmen. We have explicitly expressed that defunding Obamacare is THE top priority. Obamacare is destroying businesses, families and lives. My support will be dependent upon this most basic of requests. The man in cardiac arrest doesn’t need the world’s best heart surgeon, he needs CPR to prevent dying on the table. Please recognize the urgency we find ourselves in and leave the so-called chess players to join those who stand as defenders of the Constitution. I implore you to reconsider your position on this. Nothing else of the 113th Congress will matter if Obamacare is fully funded. Geitner has already started the conversation by stating that it’s ridiculous we have a debt ceiling. They know once it’s appropriated for, that by default the ceiling will be raised indefinitely. Maybe the current, never before done, suspension was a trial run to ease us into this mentality. It’s madness.

This is the last letter that I will send of this nature. I hope future communications will be to acknowledge appreciation for efforts and votes that empower Americans instead of government. I refuse to let those that I have supported and promoted place me in a position to beg for the very representation they promised. I’m tired of my life being dictated by the need to babysit politicians. If I’m looking at it from a cost benefit perspective, the grassroots would be better served to begin grooming a primary challenger after every election as leverage and insurance, instead of this perpetual frustration and disappointment. I want some measure of my life back.

Please know it is with much regret that I send this message to you, but I love my children and my country too much to leave it unsaid. I will be in prayer for our Republic, for those who defend her and for those statesmen who fight against the tyranny. That reminds me of something you said at the 2012 LR dinner. You asked us why our enemies would fight so hard to destroy our freedom; because it’s priceless. You offered the analogy of the military as our insurance policy and their funding as the premium. Congress has that same duty and it comes in the steadfast fight against the plunder, oppression and abuse of power that is destroying this nation.

“Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.”– Galatians 5:1

Elmwood Place Speed Cameras are Illegal: Scott Sloan and Mike Allen do Cincinnati justice as The Enquirer lays off 97 workers

“Elmwood Place is engaged in nothing more than a high-tech game of Three-card Monty,” Common Pleas Court Judge Robert Ruehlman wrote in his recent decision on speed cameras in that small Cincinnati village. “It is a scam the motorist cannot win.”  With that court decision Judge Ruehlman invalidated the legality of speed camera usage in his village of 2000 residents.  The speed cameras were simply money-making schemes created as yet another way to raise taxes on people who already pay too much—and Ruehlman did what he should have, which is remarkable in its rarity.  But leading up to the judge’s decision was Scott Sloan and Michael K. Allen both of 700 WLW who covered this story for many months and applied pressure so that the review of the speed cameras would be addressed, because without their involvement as media personalities, Elmwood Place would still be engaged in the corrupt practice.  For more elaboration, listen to the broadcasts from WLW below and grab a snack.  They make for some good radio. Also, be sure to watch the news clips below for much more background information

Here is the case as it has appeared in USA Today:

For a radio host, it is difficult to show up for work in the morning coffee in hand and resist reading out of the newspaper.  Making news and obtaining original sources is much more difficult than just providing analysis on what other reporters have obtained.  In Cincinnati for Scott Sloan at 700 WLW his job is going to become much more difficult as The Cincinnati Enquirer has just let go of 97 of their workers, 1/3rd of their entire workforce, due to their poor numbers and lack of ability to change with the new media that is beginning to insert itself into the political scene.  In that new media blogs like this one are doing the reporting newspapers used to be known for leaving special interests unable to sit on reporters to contain stories or tilt them in their favor.  Independent reporters in new media are usually doing the task of journalism without any financial compensation so they are driven by passion which is very dangerous for the mechanisms of power that have made vast amounts of money off public scams.  Since The Enquirer did not meet the challenges of new media and instead held on to their empire with a stubborn refusal to adjust, they are finding themselves on the verge of extinction.   Scott Sloan who is part of the old media, but also the new, has gained a reputation for doing his own research and breaking stories without being tipped off first from the papers of Cincinnati.  It is because of this tendency that the Elmwood Place story evolved into the ruling by Judge Ruehlman.

When I first wrote my book Tail of the Dragon which contains as one of its themes the tendency of law enforcement to unjustly pull over motorists for the sole purpose of issuing traffic citations my editor had some deep concerns about my statements in the novel.   She found it appalling that Tennessee police for the Highway Patrol had quotas they were expected to achieve each month in order to be ranked as good officers deserving pay rates.  The quotas traffic cops were expected to achieve were for the purpose of raising revenue off motorists using safety as an excuse, and that ruffled the feathers of my editor’s East Coast sensibilities.   After I provided article after article from all over The United States about the police practice being wide-spread, she accepted my position reluctantly and by the end of the manuscript edit had turned into quite a rebel herself.  The first run through the manuscript had nearly as much opposition as I received from education opponents when I first purposed locally that something was wrong with the salary structure of teaching positions and was the cause of the constant need for tax levies for school districts.  Ironically, it was Scott Sloan who originally listened to me and broke that story which took on a life of its own and forced changes that otherwise would never have occurred.   CLICK HERE TO REVIEW.  But my novel took a hard shot at the legal system behind revenue enhancement that most people just did not feel comfortable talking about just two years ago during the editing process.  By the time the book was released in the fall of 2012, the political climate had changed and law enforcement had become even more arrogant in their grabs for more streams of revenue.  It was around the time of my novel’s release that Elmwood Place and New Miami put up speed cameras to take pictures of unsuspecting vehicles and mail the tickets to violating motorists without even using a police officer in the traditional sense.  Police had become so arrogant that they dropped the mask of justice completely in favor of cameras to do the work of revenue generation.

The questions my editor posed to me were due to the fact she had accepted law enforcement was always on the side of honesty and created laws on behalf of safety for all people.  My position in Tail of the Dragon was that governments were using the revenue from speeding citations behind a mask of safety to create a hidden tax.  This seemed unfathomable to her Massachusetts eyes until I provided a lot of testimony defending my position, the kind of information I obtained while researching the novel which ended up directly in the story.  But the clarity of abuse which many have long suspected was never more apparent than when Judge Ruehlman delivered his scathing rebuke of the Elmwood Place traffic cameras.  In the wake of his ruling the revenue collected thus far will now have to be returned putting the village in an even more embarrassing situation than what Arlington Heights had to endure when Scott Sloan and Brendan Keefe of Channel 9 News recently exposed the citation racket there as well.

My aim in writing Tail of the Dragon was that readers would begin to question the nature behind traffic citations as not being implemented for safety, but the cozy relationships behind insurance companies and government looking to pay for their inflated budgets at the expense of the motorist.  The laws created are not for safety, but for the opportunity to create another revenue stream as lawmakers know that the laws are so ridiculous that nobody will obey, making citations easy to issue.  So I am more than happy to see that Mike Allen and Scott Sloan have found traction on this issue and created lasting legal changes.  And I am even more pleased to learn that there is a Judge in Robert Ruehlman who wasn’t afraid to put colorful language into his scathing rebuke, applying pressure to towns and villages all over Ohio to amend their scams against motorists with hidden taxation.  As for the fate of The Enquirer, after the hit piece they did on me almost one year ago to the day, I will admit to a bit of joy in knowing that the paper is failing.  I hate to see anybody lose their job, but when word came back to me at how Michael Clark was hailed as a hero for how he framed his article about me to the whims of school levy protestors, and many of those same 97 people now losing their jobs at the printing press laughed and giggled at my expense in their break room—I can promise that I won’t lose any sleep now that those same people will be on the unemployment line.  Good riddance to your failed newspaper and the policies that put you there.  Life goes on for the rest of us.  Scott Sloan is making his own stories and is doing what media members should be without taking direction from The Cincinnati Enquirer.  Mike Allen is continuing to show his resilience as a legal crusader much to the benefit of the public.  And I am enjoying the sales from my new book that has been sold out at Amazon for over three weeks now.  (YES IT’S AVAILABLE ELSEWHERE—TRY BARNES AND NOBEL IF AMAZON IS SOLD OUT—CLICK HERE)  But Michael Clark, who wrote the hit piece on me one year ago, who once told me at a school board meeting that I should bring stories to him first instead of WLW because all they did was read on the air what he wrote in the paper—well, the results speak for themselves.  Those 97 people probably wouldn’t have lost their job if you had done your job better Clark, and not been a lap dog for school systems.  There are a lot of stories that need to be reported like the Elmwood Place story, and Scott Sloan is doing the work among others in new media.  If The Enquirer had done its job and not leaned so far to the political left in a very conservative town, the paper might be adding jobs, instead of taking them away.

Have a listen to what Darryl Parks of 700 WLW said about “new media” and the tragedy at The Cincinnati Enquirer. He’s had his share of hit pieces done against him from that paper as well.  Gotta watch who you piss on while climbing to the top.  Because you’ll see them on the way back down.
