NOTICE TO NEWS MEDIA, PUNDITS, CITIZENS, BLOGGERS, GOVERNMENT, AND ALL INTERESTED PERSONS -- Calling for action!Even where too many people have presented substantial documentation to plead their cause in any court of law in this nation, unless they have a lot of money to retain an attorney and then have to plead with them to take their case, justice remains elusive. Lives are devastated. The nation suffers from an uptick in criminal activities. America's light fades. But, it will never fail.
I am making a forceful case to support United States legal reform before any further attempts are made toward creating health care reform. America is in a drastic Constitutional crisis right now. And too many officials and legal persons in positions of authority continue to create havoc in our nation in order to obstruct justice and the rule of law and detract us from moving toward concrete solutions. Even when citizens have acquired supportive documentation to help them to win their case in any courthouse in this nation, none of it does them any good, if some lawyers and government officials choose to disregard their evidence out of hand. As a result, citizens are suffering loss of homes, property, speech, religion, due process, and their life.
Instead of encouraging American citizens to "Be all you can be," because -- as Obama said so many times on his campaign trail, "Yes we can!" However, the Obama Administration has constantly belittled this nation even on the global scene. And, Americans are told regularly that we have not done enough to help lift our country from the economic disaster which was exacerbated by Obama's excessive expenditures even after he publicly admitted the nation is bankrupt. "We have no more money," he said during an interview early in his term of a mere almost nine months.
Watchdog citizens who have repeatedly sounded the Constitutional alarms before, during, throughout, and after the 2008 Presidential election campaign were subjected to taunts by unprofessional journalists and pundits who should have been doing their job to research, investigate, and objectively inform the public. In too many instances, that did not happen. Nevertheless, we have come to a crucial crossroads in America's history and it is time for Americans to rise up with one voice and say, "Enough!"
ACORN and the Obama Administration have placed this nation in a needless dilemma
The transparency promised by the White House apparently means their documents and actions will be placed on their websites but that interested members of the public would have to take a wild guess at when and where its located. And, if citizens cannot find the information, then the attitude of this administration appears to be, oh well?!
At any rate, that seems to be what this Democrat-controlled administration would have us to believe. For, Obama, his key staff, members and czars, and the chair of Congressional Subcommittees feign ignorance about what they ought to do with the current devastating information on ACORN which has been gathered by two courageous investigative watchdogs working along with Big Government. They have shared their tapes with the Fox TV Cable News station which, in turn, shared the same with the public to explicitly expose the ongoing corruption involving ACORN and co-conspirators, to wherever it may lead. There is corruption all across this nation, which must be addressed and resolved.
To make a long story short and to get this information into the hands of the public and with the proper authorities to create another groundswell of action, against all perpetrators, I will provide links to critical government information which ought to prove beyond any shadow of a doubt to every American that we have been bamboozled long enough.
The White House, The Congress, ACORN, Journalists --YOU LIE!
The links below must be read closely and carefully to understand why ACORN must not conduct their own investigation into their alleged corruption. Indeed, because of the new amended law signed by Obama on May 20, 2009, the matter is now out of their hands based on the documentation. The reader will understand why Attorney General Eric Holder can no longer refuse to investigate ACORN and to take corrective actions against them in accordance with the law. And Americans will have a clearer understanding of why Barack Obama, the sitting President and Commander in Chief, should either resign or be impeached right now for violating his Constitutional Oath of Office "to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution." He has no credibility! He is not trustworthy. He lacks the confidence of the American citizenry. Read on.
On May 20, 2009, in the East Room of the White House, Barack Obama, the President, signed into law, "The Helping Families Save Their Homes Act and the Fraud Enforcement and Recovery Act," (aka FERA). Overall, what this law does is to decisively take out any guess work about how the government agencies are to handle any such cases such as ACORN's that come before the appropriate government agencies. ACORN clearly comes under Obama's recently signed, amended law. In one instance, the remarks Obama made before he signed it stated, in part:
"Well, standing up for the American people is exactly what we're doing here today with two bills that I'm about to sign --- The Helping Families Save Their Homes Act, and The Fraud Enforcement and Recovery Act (FERA). These landmark pieces of legislation will protect hardworking Americans, crack down on those who seek to take advantage of them, and ensure that the problems that led us to this crisis never happen again."
In his remarks, Obama then, goes on to name, as follows,
"my good friend, Chris Dodd . . . and Senator Richard Shelby. (Applause.) . . . and then on the House side, Chairman Barney Frank and Representative Maxine Waters . . . have done a great job. (Applause.) And I want to thank Senators Patrick Leahy and Chuck Grassley, as well as Representatives Conyers and Bobby Scott for leading the way on the fraud enforcement bill. (Applause.)" He goes on further to say, "And I am grateful to have Harry Reid here, as well as Nancy Pelosi, who could not be here, and the other key members of Congress for assigning these measures the urgency that they deserve and that the times demand."
Furthermore, Obama states,
"The other bill that I'm signing today gives prosecutors and regulators new tools to crack down on what's helped cause this crisis in the first place --- and that's the twin scourges of mortgage and predatory lending.. . Banks and lenders must end the practices that added to this mess. Individuals must take responsibility for their own actions. And all of us must learn to live within our means again."
That statement is PRICELESS coming from a man who took an oath of office to help us continue to live in what has become known as the leader of the Free World! Americans have learned to dream big, reach higher, and "go for the gold," but Obama now wants to break our federal bank, redistribute wealth, make the rich poor and don't care if we don't have any more as he and his wife, Michelle, and their "girls" and friends live large on taxpayer dollars --- trillions in fact. Well, Americans have worked to be the best and to have the best and to give the best. We, as a nation, have learned to strive for better, and we certainly will not settle for less than and become bitter, especially from outrageous edicts coming from the pens of our elected, appointed, and anointed leaders who have absolutely no regard for Americans.
I suppose some may ask, Can we talk about it? NO! We have found that talk is cheap around the capitals of this nation emanating from the Capitol and White House. Talking time is over. If we stayed around their table of greed any longer, we will have the rug pulled from under us sure nuff.
If the reader(s) want to make a definite difference, they must thoroughly read these documents and references to which I have provided links and rally around the cry for this administration to drop their push for Health Care Reform (aka ObamaCare) and for them to begin immediately to work on legal reform --- starting with letting local, state, and national leaders in authority from the President on down know that not one person is above the law, including them.
Niceness has its moment but being frankly blunt while wielding the sword of truth will get the appropriate results right -- and right away. No Americans need to lay awake at night wondering if our leaders are plotting to punish them for demanding truth and compliance to the Constitution and to the law (i.e., both God's and man's).
Please contact me for further information or references and, I might add, unless another author cites this article and sources when they report theirs based on it, I will call them on it. Get busy and dig deeper. I know there is much more documentation out there (and in my files) for overall follow up pertaining to so many other governmental areas the administration keeps ignoring.
I take this bold, steadfast stand, because too many people purportedly calling themselves professional journalists have sneered at us bloggers and watchdogs. We need to have urgent national distribution and contacts, because this information we have acquired (and more) herein provides answers to some of the legal procedural questions many of our attorneys are sitting on and the solutions we need to put into place before 2010. Now is the time for us to put ACORN and all other such corrupt entities out of business and help put us back on track as a balanced nation.
This is not my usual expected and completed commentary. However, in the interest of time, I have provided the bones of the problem for you who want to make a definite difference right now. So, please go and put some meat on these textual bones and shout it from the roof tops. Lets all work together to reclaim America to her Godly self. God bless you. God bless America.
