Obama bill is abomination

A nice-sounding bill called the “Global Poverty Act,” sponsored by Democratic presidential candidate and Senator Barack Obama, is up for a Senate vote on Thursday and could result in the imposition of a global tax on the United States. The bill, which has the support of many liberal religious groups, makes levels of U.S. foreign aid spending subservient to the dictates of the United Nations.

Senator Joe Biden, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, has not endorsed either Senator Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton in the presidential race. But on Thursday, February 14, he is trying to rush Obama’s “Global Poverty Act” (S.2433) through his committee. The legislation would commit the U.S. to spending 0.7 percent of gross national product on foreign aid, which amounts to a phenomenal 13-year total of $845 billion over and above what the U.S. already spends.

The bill, which is item number four on the committee’s business meeting agenda, passed the House by a voice vote last year because most members didn’t realize what was in it. Congressional sponsors have been careful not to calculate the amount of foreign aid spending that it would require. According to the website of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, no hearings have been held on the Obama bill in that body.

A release from the Obama Senate office about the bill declares, “In 2000, the U.S. joined more than 180 countries at the United Nations Millennium Summit and vowed to reduce global poverty by 2015. We are halfway towards this deadline, and it is time the United States makes it a priority of our foreign policy to meet this goal and help those who are struggling day to day.”

Hillary Gets Walloped

Obama’s 25 point victory over Mrs. Clinton marks six straight. I’m going to file this under “who’d a thunk it?”

No, it’s not over yet. But, it sure is starting to feel like it.

For many of us on the Right, there is a bit of Hillaryfreude. Watching Doyle and Henry resign, and Maggie (Vince Foster) Williams take over Team Hillary, brings back memories of everything we loathe about the Clinton machine. Still, if Senator Gravitas is able to hold off Hillary’s last firewall in Texas and Ohio, think of all the opposition research that will go to waste.

I guess it’s time to get busy putting together the Obama File. Please feel free to post your best links.

Huck grabs the early lead in Old Dominion

With 26% of the vote in, Huckabee holds less than a 1000 vote lead over McCain

On the Left, Obama creamed Hillary. It wasn’t pretty.

Fox called it when the polls closed.

More to come….

UPDATE: With 40% in, McCain has a 1400 vote lead. GOP insiders are wondering if it’s time to invoke the Washington GOP precedent, stop counting the votes, and project McCain as the winner.

Update2:  With 49% of the vote in, and McCain leading 47-45, Fox calls it for McCain.  No word yet if they are going to stop counting the vote.

Deep Thoughts, by Bill Clinton

Fairfax, Va. (CNSNews.com) – In advance of today’s Potomac Primaries in Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, D.C., former President Bill Clinton led a rally for his wife’s campaign at George Mason University Monday night. […]

The “first thing that you want in a president is somebody who will keep big bad things from happening,” President Clinton told the crowd at GMU. A president must also “make sure good things happen.” The former president said the nation needs a “change-maker, and she’s been one all of her life.” […]

The president emphasized that he would support his wife’s candidacy, even if he were not married to her — because of her position on issues and her record as “a change-maker” over the past 35 years. [ed. note: Drink!]

The Democrats are running on a platitudinous platform of “hope” and “change.” It is, in many ways, no different than the Congressional races of 2006, except that surrendering in Iraq is no longer a priority. Democrat Congressional candidates ran on no platform then, and their Presidential candiates are running on no platform now.

McCain: No Controlling Legal Authority

The author and chief proponent of much of the tangled web of campaign finance rules and regulations, has decided that he can continue write the rules as they apply to his campaign while on the fly.

mccain.jpgLast summer, McCain asked to participate in the public financing system when his campaign hit the skids after the immigration amnesty debacle. After his request was approved by the FEC, he was scheduled to receive some $5.8 million. The money, however, would not come without strings attached. The restraints on fundraising as well as the state-specific spending limits imposed by the law, would mean that McCain has been in, or is close to, violation of the law since Super Tuesday.

According to campaign finance lawyer Marc Elias, “At this point, (McCain) is in the matching fund system. Right now, there is no mechanism for the commission to turn off the spigot.”

Team McCain has decided to make an aggressive move, “ignore the limits and hope that when the FEC is eventually reconstituted, it will ‘exercise its prosecutorial discretion and dismiss any complaint’ over a plain violation of the law” source. “I will make no further requests for matching-fund payment certification and will not accept any matching-fund payments including the initial amount and other amounts certified by the commission in connections with my campaign’s previous submissions,” said McCain in a letter to the FEC last week.

It may indeed prove to be a successful maneuver. It is interesting that in addition to supporting Global Warmists, McCain’s behavior reveals yet another commonality with Albert Gore. When confronted with a clear violation of campaign finance laws, he seems to be claiming, “There is no controlling legal authority that says this was in violation of law.”

Huckabee voter issue guide

ACCOMPLISHMENTS
1. With ten-and-a-half years of experience running state government, Governor Mike Huckabee of Arkansas has more relevant executive experience than any candidate in the race – either Republican or Democrat.

2. Recognized and tapped by his peers for leadership, the National Governor’s Association selected Governor Huckabee as it’s Chairman.

3. TIME Magazine honored him as one of the five best Governors in America.

4. Governor Huckabee is a fiscal conservative who cut taxes almost 100 times in the state of Arkansas, including the state’s first broad-based tax cuts, and turned a $200 million deficit into an $850 million surplus.

ISSUES
1. TAXES/ECONOMY –Governor Huckabee supports The FairTax because it will restore the “Made in America” label, making American goods 12-25% more competitive, boosting economic growth, increasing our exports, and securing American jobs. It also prevents criminals or illegal aliens from avoiding taxes, and makes the taxes we all pay 100% transparent.

2. GOVERNMENT SPENDING – Governor Huckabee is committed to reducing government spending. One way he’ll do this is by reducing the cost of welfare. Governor Huckabee will work with states to reduce welfare roles through programs like the one he implemented in Arkansas, which reduced welfare roles by 50%.

3. HEALTH CARE –Governor Huckabee will implement a consumer-based healthcare system that emphasizes preventative medicine and wellness. Because 70% of our $2 trillion dollar healthcare costs is spent treating chronic, preventable diseases, this approach will make healthcare more affordable for everybody while keeping us healthier.

4. FAMILY VALUES –Governor Huckabee supports a federal constitutional amendment to protect the right to life. He Successfully fought for Arknasas’ marriage amendment and strongly supports a similar, federal constitutional amendment defining marriage as a union between one man and one woman.

5. IMMIGRATION –Governor Huckabee will secure the border (with physical barriers, electronic surveillance, and more border-patrol personnel and detention facilities). He will also end sanctuary cities and increase penalties on, and enforcement against, employers who hire illegal immigrants. Governor Huckabee will make sure the border patrol has adequate funding to end our “catch and release” system so that everyone caught trying to enter illegally, overstaying their visa, or committing a crime will be held until they’re tried, convicted, and deported. Gov. Huckabee has also signed the Numbers USA “No Amnesty” Pledge.

6. WAR ON TERROR AND IRAQ – Governor Huckabee knows it takes a large, well-equipped military to ensure our national defense and to deter conventional military confrontations. He also knows we need large, well-equipped intelligence and Special Forces operations for our national offense – so we can effectively find and eliminate terrorist threats at home or abroad. Governor Huckabee will be a Commander in Chief who knows that IF WE HAVE TO FIGHT A WAR, our President has to fight it the way our GENERALS tell him it can be won, not the way we want it to be won.

7. ENERGY INDEPENDENCE –Governor Huckabee will implement a program to end the import of foreign oil in the next ten years by increasing domestic oil production in the short term, and then replacing oil-based energy infrastructure with alternative and renewable energies.

8. CLEMENCIES – Arkansas Governors grant clemency, but the parole board grants parole. Wayne DuMond’s parole was granted by the board and NOT Governor Huckabee.

9. TAXES –When Governor Huckabee left office, the tax rates remained exactly the same as when he first came into office. Governor Huckabee returned almost $400 million to Arkansas taxpayers, and he also DOUBLED the standard deduction for individuals and married couples, DOUBLED the childcare tax credit, and eliminated the marriage penalty. He also repealed capital gains taxes for home sales, lowered the capital gains rate by 25%, expanded the homestead exemption, and set up tax-free savings accounts for medical care and college tuition.  Gov. Huckabee has also signed the Americans for Tax Reform’s pledge not to raise taxes.

10. SECOND AMENDMENT
• Lifetime member of the NRA, member for over 15 years
• First Governor to have concealed-carry permit
• Removed restrictions on carry permit holders
• Protected gun manufacturers from frivolous lawsuits
• Opposes reauthorization of the Assault Weapon Ban
• Opposes expansion of the unconstitutional “Brady Bill”
• Opposes waiting period for purchase of firearms
• Opposes background checks on private firearms transactions at gun shows
• Will nominate judges who interpret the constitution as the Founders intended, rather than as a “living document reflecting current political trends or opinions”
• An avid hunter and conservationist, and a member of the Ducks Unlimited, National Wild Turkey Federation and BASS.
