“The Undefeated” Movie Trailer


Few public figures have ever generated the strong emotions over the issues of our time like Sarah Palin has.

Time To Pay the Piper?

Time To Pay the Piper?
ROC Commentary (July 15, 2011 Issue#28)

Any private entity operating like our government does now would likely be considered a criminal enterprise.

Since the 1930’s our federal government works in many respects much like Ponzi schemes made famous by many notorious figures who devised underhanded ways to help themselves to the fruits of other people’s labor for profit to themselves.  Politicians figured out long ago that public accountability was lacking at certain times, especially when their own party enjoyed immense political power. Tricky wording and emotional appeal could be employed to get enough visible public support to advance ill-advised policies and programs so they could be incrementally implemented with minimum resistance from the people, most of whom would never consider the long term implications. So they promised the American people the world, the stars and the moon! Unfortunately many believed that there was such a thing as a “free lunch!” The politicians then pocketed their political profits…at our expense.

So many wild promises have been made to Americans for decades now by these politicians in the name of solving one “problem” or another with vague assurances as to the benefits compared to the true costs.  This selling by incremental steps has a ratcheting factor too (rarely, if ever, reversed) that has allowed the politicians of the federal government to create incomprehensible, mammoth-sized money drains on America’s productive. A continuing series of power usurping moves by these so called representatives or by supposedly impartial judges with agendas (public servants entrusted with upholding the duties and responsibilities required by the US Constitution) has also successfully reversed the role of our federal government in relation to the people.

Increasingly the media safeguard for accountability has evaporated as they have ignored their watchdog role or actively participated in the political deceptions. Now the federal government has intruded into numerous areas of our lives by exercising power they were never granted by the people or by our founding documents. This usurpation of power has cost us big time… in both monetary terms, and in our liberty. The “piper” now holds a huge bill in our name (not the politicians who ran it up)… that threatens to exceed our ability to pay. The reckless spending for empty promises must stop now, and the bill we owe must be addressed … while we still can. The past promises that were made and are now depended on by so many must be brought into proper perspective through a prism based in reality and not automatically continued “as is” until they inevitably ruin us all financially.

What we are witnessing in the the “debt ceiling” debate is the unpleasant reality which eventually catches up with those who set up schemes to defraud others.  The unpleasant results of making wild promises, while using other peoples money to keep the scams going, has come to a head.  Those who are in on the Washington con or “game” simply wish to continue to play… by giving themselves permission to do so, even though it has become glaringly apparent that the longer this continues, the worse it will be for our young and future citizens.

The American people for the most part have made it clear that we expect and demand responsible, accountable, and honest solutions by our representation to get us back on the right track and provide our posterity with the same opportunities we have enjoyed. We repeatedly reject any more “smoke and mirrors”, or “kicking the can down the road” in order to avoid doing what must be done.

This is not just another high stakes contest in the game of “chicken” between political foes.  This battle has much more on the line than who wins politically. Ultimately the outcome will directly affect all the people, and determine the future or demise of this country.  There is very little to really compromise on, as the actual choice is stark… either the success or failure as a country.  It is time to stand up for doing what is right if we believe in America. It is long past due time to “pay the piper” and to get our house in order to ensure that from now on… we have and operate a government based in reality… and not false utopian dreams for equal outcomes, ideological fantasies, or other pretending.

Message from Rob McKenna-Tax Day Rally

Can you believe it? “We don’t care what happened in the last election.”

That’s right, it’s less than six months since the historic 2010 election, and already the far-left protestors screaming for media attention are pretending it didn’t happen.

In fact, one hard-core tax-and-spend advocate summed up their position succinctly at last week’s protests in Olympia: “We don’t care what happened in the last election.”

Don’t you think that the message voters sent last year was clear enough?

Last fall, voters in our state resoundingly rejected a state income tax and repealed new taxes on candy, bottled water and other items. At the same time they passed, yet again, a 2/3 majority rule for passing tax increases, a measure that majority Democrats have repeatedly ignored and repealed.

No, that message should be clear enough, even for a screaming protester.

Washington voters rejected tax hikes on struggling families and told the Olympia crowd – Make do with the taxes you already take!

It’s not that far-left extremists, some of whom were arrested storming the governor’s office in the capitol last week, didn’t hear that message. They just don’t like it and think your elected officials should ignore it.

And that’s why the mob was cheering when they heard “We don’t care what happened in the last election.”

Now that’s a pretty galling statement. The far-left position is that everything the voters said last year should be ignored, and they made their voices loud and clear in Olympia last week. They received the media attention they wanted.

Unfortunately, average taxpayers don’t necessarily have the time to drive down to Olympia and encourage legislators to hold the line on taxes. They have families to raise, jobs to do and businesses to keep afloat.

So, I do want you to know about one opportunity, perhaps a little closer to your home, where you can make your voice heard. Tomorrow, April 15, I’ll be speaking at Bellevue City Hall to the Tax Day Rally 2011 at 11:00 a.m. It will be a great event where we celebrate our state and stand up for the majority of people who DO care what happened in the last election.

I hope to see you there.

All the best,

Rob McKenna

Objects to be Manipulated Into Serfdom

Objects to be Manipulated Into Serfdom

ROC Editorial
[Appears in Newsletter ROC Issue #14-2011]

Objects. That’s us, the American people. The people can be manipulated by words. Those engaged in the perpetual game of acting as Santa Claus, for anyone that has their hands out, in order to retain power for themselves, have shown this to be their attitude to the citizens of this nation. So after decades of this style of governing, our country is in real trouble. Too many people have been partners in this tango of deceit.

It would be one thing if those dispersing all the goodies were the actual owners of the treasures in the first place, and they wished to have them redistributed among themselves, but of course this is not, and has never been, the case. They need productive makers and innovators to loot from. They need the power to force others to comply.

What is happening here now is what has happened around the world by people who were gullible and susceptible to the words of manipulators who hide behind a paper thin veneer of legitimacy based upon their ability to exploit the hardships of the truly needy.

It is sickening to watch so many of our fellow countrymen either enable or participate in this despicable behavior that is so immoral, and so destructive to our society. It is disgraceful to think of all the efforts devoted to the basic tenet of lying your way through life to protect a power sharing racket, based on creating alliances for the purpose of enabling legalized theft and redistributing stolen goods. Yet we see so much evidence of this everyday. From voter fraud, hidden government records, judges ignoring objectivity, outright fabrications like global warming, backroom deals of bribery and extortion, all of it meant to consolidate power over other people. Even those we used to hold in high esteem seem to have no problem with lying their way through life, as we recently witnessed in Wisconsin with doctors writing false sick notes to the unionized teachers that actively sought them out.

This week has given us some hope however. We see real leaders stepping forward and offering a just, compassionate and logical path that ends the perpetual looting game, and restores accountable and responsible government that the good people are finally demanding. The Tea Party movement is comprised of these people that we traditionally think of when we think of America. Honest, hardworking, with a strong sense of family and moral principles who want to preserve the heritage of a great country that lives in freedom and looks out for their fellow man.

Paul Ryan’s budget plan is exactly the type of reform that we need to set this country back on course.  The Democrats are trying to lie to the people, Paul Ryan is giving us the truth! The course lain by Pelosi, Reid, and Obama ends as a smashed wreck on the rocks, with America broken, and its people subservient, and no longer with a say in their own government, while also deprived of any individual liberty. It ends this way only if we allow ourselves to be treated as objects, who were easily manipulated into supporting the dishonest, who are always consumed by the need for power.

However, under the Ryan plan, America regathers both its moral compass, and its strength. A Santa Claus method of favoritism in exchange for power requires an endless supply of other people’s money, taken by force, that is unsustainable. This gangster system needs to be thwarted for good now, no matter how much temporary sacrifice this requires, because when it violently expires eventually and inevitably, after all the money is gone, and our country is in its death throes, the pain will be far, far greater.

The Democrats did not pass a budget because they decided it would be easier to deceive the public by attacking any Republican plan.  The President’s proposal for a budget was a continuation of the irresponsibility and dishonesty he wishes to perpetuate.

So what will happen? Will we become a nation which succumbed to lying words, from liars, who would have us believe they are helping the weak, or will we follow a true path to reform our broken and exploited system to restore the real America?

Have straw-men, will travel

That is how I imagine the title on a Barack Obama cover-sheet for his resume.

Hope was coming, change was needed, and neither the status quo nor the special interests would escape. Can we do all that…Yes we can!

So went the rhetoric of the new dynamic young leader vying for the presidency of the United States.

Of course the speech lasted much longer and the substance was pretty much left up to the audience to fill in… as they imagined it.

That was then, and that is now, still.

The dream weaver is president now, and has been 16 months. The rhetoric is still the same.

We see that there has indeed been change, and bigger government involvement in our lives has comprised almost all of it.

The hope part has worn thin too, for all but the most die hard ideologues as the same old empty promise rhetoric of so many politicians before him.

The bad guys are still referred to as the special interests, corporate special interests, CEO’s and special interests, and those wanting the status quo and the special interests.

There is of course the banking special interest, the financial sector special interests, the insurance industry special interests, and the right wing special interests too. Let’s not forget those fringe tea partiers who of course are really just front groups for the special interests!

These straw-men are the traveling bad guys that the avenging hero must dispense of in every imagined, or even actual crisis, to save the day, to save you. He tells us we should thank him.

Read almost any request for campaign donations for a Democrat candidate and you will find Mr. Special Interest listed as the bad guy they are fighting, and why they need your loot to defeat him.

Having any special interests must be a very bad thing. This charge might be especially hard to make stick to others if your own list of special interests was very long itself. One might even not want to disclose this inconvenient fact less ones own credibility be attacked. Of course having the media covering the dreams verses the realities helps.

But even with the White House doing everything in their power not to be transparent in their dealings with special interests, it isn’t hard to see where the taxpayers money has been going nor who is behind getting it to them.

The visitors log at the White House is a chronology of special interests visiting for the purpose of special favors. These people are not turned away as unwelcome guests, they are invited to come get in line. They all have an interest in getting what they want. The president acts to give them what they want and they in turn act to give him what he wants.

Next time you hear the president or one of his cronies crowing about special interests, don’t worry about undefined straw-men, think about that White House visitors log and how nice it might look in some sunshine!

One more thing, when that next request for money or support for a Democrats position comes in your in-box look for that “special interest bad guy dude”, he is sure to be mentioned in one way or another!

Health Care Reform Debate Must Occur!

By all indications so far, in this administration, real debate about any issue has been dismissed and policy is being imposed as if  “time for debate is over”.

No “crisis” can be wasted!

The word has been put out to Nanny Pelosi, and the rest of the “Obama-compliant” Congress and his media,

“Obamacare” (universal health care) will be voted into law before the summer break!

We will be bombarded with a lot of twisted rhetoric, pro-nationalization anecdotal evidence, that “this is the time and now is the time”, and heavy propaganda by the left about the success of national health care programs elsewhere, and the “right” of everyone in America to have access to affordable health care via such a system.

Never mind that socialized medicine is actually bankrupting other countries, eating up budgets and delivering inferior care… pay no attention to that!

Like the “Man-made Global Warming”  hoax- the facts will not matter, only peoples perception of the facts really matter to the politicians, and the left- has a monopoly in manipulating this aspect of the “debate”.

Massachusetts Senator Ted Kennedy’s “blueprint for health care” is being toted by the Left as the prime example we should  follow for reforms, but the “Massachusetts Model” is not exactly a success.

See Massachusetts Miracle or Massachusetts Miserable…by CATO’s Michael D. Tanner

An actual debate would need to ask this question-

Is healthy competition even being allowed to take place in the US health care system?

In a different article Mr. Tanners states:

Other countries are loosening government controls and injecting market mechanisms, particularly cost-sharing by patients, market pricing of goods and services, and increased competition among insurers and providers. Pat Cox, former president of the European Parliament, said in a report to the European Commission, “[W]e should start to explore the power of the market as a way of achieving much better value for money.”

There is even evidence of a growing shift from public to private provision of health care. If many of the proposals in Congress would push us toward more of a European-style system, the trend in Europe is toward a system that looks more like the U.S.

The politicians created an impression in the public’s mind about both the causes and effects of so-called environmental catastrophes awaiting mankind,  if we failed to act.  Once they became certain enough people believed the “evidence”, ( that they had largely fabricated ) they declared that “the debate was over”, and that the time for solutions (theirs) was here!

That method is about to saddle us with the biggest tax increase in the history of the world, and it is based solely on people believing a lie!

We must continue to expose that lie for what it is, before it destroys us, and also have actual debate on health care reform before it to becomes an excuse to plunge into the “no return world” of government control, collectivism, and socialism!

The power brokers are actually reforming our country, this is not even really about health care, or energy  problems.

This is about the ability to control massive amounts of people by having control over what they do or do not get, or are allowed to keep for themselves.

This is ultimately a  debate  about transferring our own self-determination as individuals,  over to an all powerful government.

This is a debate we must have, and that we must win to stay free!
