All Eight of Alinksy’s Rules are firmly entrencehed in the U.S.A.

crew-2231Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot?


Are you a useful idiot? Progressives like Hillary Clinton believe you are.

Let’s all turn out to vote in 2014 and 16 to take our country back and prove socialism wrong.

No country has thrived under pure socialism, and that is exactly the direction the Obama cabal is taking us.


 Here’s one that is unfortunately true and NOT funny.  

H/T Full Bird Col Wood.

Too bad the media doesn’t make it public knowledge.  It might open the eyes of some seriously misguided folks, and even the Bible says “…the Truth will set you free”

Subject:  Beware The Useful Idiots

If anyone can read this and still say everything is just fine……..

Recall that Hillary did her college thesis on his writings and Obama writes about him in his books.

Saul Alinsky died about 43 years ago, but his writings influenced those in political control of our nation today.

Saul David Alinsky, a writer, was an American community organizer and writer. He is generally considered to be the founder of the modern community organizing movement. He is most noted for his book Rules for Radicals.

 Died: June 12, 1972, Carmel-by-the-Sea, CA

Education: University of Chicago

Spouse: Irene Alinsky

Books: Rules for Radicals, Reveille for Radicals

Anyone out there think that this stuff isn’t happening today in the U.S.?

All eight rules are currently in play.

How to create a social state by Saul Alinsky:

There are eight levels of control that must be obtained before you are able to create a social state. The first is the most important.

1) Healthcare– Control healthcare and you control the people.


2) Poverty – Increase the Poverty level as high as possible, poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live.

socialismpovertySaid differently, “Shared misery for all but the elite.

3) Debt – Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty.


4) Gun Control– Remove the ability to defend themselves from the Government. That way you are able to create a police state.


Let’s not forget the gun control zealots, Boxer, Feinstein and Pelosi.

A Winning Alternative to Obamacare: Project 2017 The Republican Plan

Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper, and Patriot.


There’s more to the Republican proposal and they invite readers to take a look at it at www.2017project.org.

They admit it’s not perfect, and  hope others will find ways to improve upon it.

The one problem that stands out to me is; they plan to solve the problem of expensive preexisting conditions, allocating $7.5 billion a year in defined-contribution federal funding for state-run “high risk” pools.


In reality, all Obama’s Heath Care Denial and Rationing Plan will offer.

At this point I don’t see the government needing to be involved at any level.

Do we need them to helps us buy a car? 

The Weekly Standard

Obamacare is failing. Faced with this unpleasant reality, President Obama offered up during his State of the Union address his only remaining defense of his eponymous program: There is no alternative.

“[M]y Republican friends…if you have specific plans…tell America what you’d do differently….We all owe it to the American people to say what we’re for, not just what we’re against.”

We accept the challenge. The 2017 Project, with which we’re associated, has developed an alternative to Obama’s 2,700 pages of federal largess.

The proposal builds upon prior efforts by conservative policymakers and thinkers, including recent proposals from the House Republican Study Committee (RSC) and a trio of senior GOP senators (Tom Coburn, Richard Burr, and Orrin Hatch).

It would solve the three core problems that called out for real reform even before the Democrats passed Obamacare: getting more people insured; dealing with the problem of preexisting conditions; and lowering costs.

Value Based Insurance: it sounds so – “valuable”

crew-223Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.Acknowledged Health Care economics expert, Thomas Loker  poses some serious questions.

Value based insurance, sounds so - valuable!

Value Base Insurance Coverage, it sounds so — valuable. But is it really valuable? Is Value Based Insurance Coverage (VBIC) what you really want — what you may need?

Well, perhaps, that simply remains to be seen.

As we move through the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, ObamaCare, VBIC will become the next big thing we need to pay close attention to.

You can be sure that soon this item will be getting quite a bit of ink as the potential ramifications become apparent.

Like so many things in life, the reality of this “value” based system may be fraught with unintended consequences for the individual and massive values and benefits for Continue reading →

Ya Think?

And then there will be us!

crew-223Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

The article titled, “Health emergency: On eve of Obamacare, Britain’s NHS needs political therapy,” is deceiving. 



The Canadian system has been broken  for over a decade.

Why do you think Canadian physicians have changed to a fee for service model from the NY Times no less.?

Before that and even now,  Canadian’s who could afford it purchased insurance and went to the U.S. for serious ailments.

Big shocker, the U.S. system with is admitted problems didn’t ration care and waiting to see a physician was not problematic as in Canada where survival rates for most forms of cancer are signifently less than what U.S. patients have with same stage and grade of disease.

The difference early diagnosis.  In Canada if you want to see an oncologist plan on waiting, also factor in rationing and not receiving “state of the art therapy.”



The same  trend can be said for the UK.

The Washington Examiner
As the United States embarks on an overhaul of its health care system, Britain’s government-run system is showing signs of ageLONDON — In early September, Julie Bailey was settling into her new home. Weeks before, she had been chased out of her town after a succession of death threats, the desecration of her mother’s grave and the collapse of her small business.

No, Bailey isn’t the star witness in a mob trial. She’s just an average British citizen who became a lightning rod for exposing failures of the country’s vaunted National Health Service after her mother died while in its care.

Founded in 1948 on the premise that health care should be made available to all without charge, the NHS remains a tremendous source of national pride. In Britain, the NHS is often described as the “envy of the world.” A vast bureaucracy boasting 1.7 million workers, it is the fifth-largest employer on the planet, according to the BBC. NHS workers are so esteemed that they’re treated to a wide range of discounts – in restaurants and hotels, for instance, and even for mobile phones – typically reserved in the United States for senior citizens and members of the military. When London hosted the 2012 Summer Olympics, the opening ceremony included a glitzy tribute to the health service, complete with a parade of dancing nurses.

Though the NHS has been subject to an endless stream of reorganizations and reforms over the decades whenever the government has transferred power, no prime minister – not even “Iron Lady” Margaret Thatcher – has had the political will to make fundamental changes. As Nigel Lawson, chancellor of the exchequer under Thatcher, famously put it, “The NHS is the closest thing the English have to a religion.”

The Conservative government of David Cameron has enacted some modest reforms to the NHS since taking over in 2010, but the Tories made the calculation that in order to get elected they had to neutralize the health care issue by portraying themselves as protectors of the institution. So they have steered clear of radical changes.

ObamaCare becomes DemoCare: Demolishes Middle Class!


Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

Is this the first bill signed into law, that Democrats feel compelled to resell us on a gain and bring to the Senate and House of Representatives for more votes?



From Tom Lokar’s

Health Care Crisis in America

The Affordable Care Act is often called ObamaCare but I think from now on it should be called “DemoCare” because it’s going to demolish care in America and along with that demolish America’s Middle Class.


There are quite a lot of things about the way this law works that make it undesirable.  Mostly, the causes are not in the debate that we hear so much about nor are they in the parade of facts that we are about to be inundated with over the next 90 days from those selling the benefits or arguing against them.  Like most debates the truth in the rhetoric is somewhere between the extremes.

Congressman Mike Kelly gets standing O for nailing IRS chief


Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

When the congressman said, ‘”Is there any limit to the scope of where you folks can go?,” to which there was no reply.



It would seem prudent to bring a gun to your next audit to see if these taxpayer members of the Gestapo might develop a bit of a sense of humor or decency.


Drew Zahn

A scathing rant aimed at Internal Revenue Service abuses brought a standing ovation at Friday’s House Ways and Means Committee hearing from observers who apparently thought Rep. Mike Kelly, R-Pa., hit the nail on the head.

“If you think it’s uncomfortable sitting over there,” Kelly told former IRS Chief Steve Miller as he grilled him over revelations the IRS targeted “tea party” and “patriot” groups for heightened scrutiny on tax-exempt status applications, “you ought to be a private individual when the IRS is across from you asking you questions.

“I have to tell you,” Kelly said to Miller, who resigned on Wednesday at the request of the White House, “where you’re sitting, you should be outraged. But you’re not.

“The American people should be outraged, and they are,” he continued. “This reaffirms everything the American public believes. This is a huge blow to the faith and trust the American people have in their government. Is there any limit to the scope of where you folks can go?” (Entire article below.)

Should We Pay Government Employees More?

41549_100001921669893_1469664278_nComment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist and Patriot.

Missing in the analysis below is a serious issue.  Why should federal workers be paid their salaries and benefits including double pensions when they might be better out sourced to the private sector. Remember also, government workers are more often than not union members.

images-2Government unions worked hard to re-elect President Obama, and now they’re expecting a payout at the expense of taxpayers. Any suggestion that their pay is below market levels is completely false.

Doing the math, it’s simple, the government worker is paid by the taxpayer thus the taxes the federal worker pays has been extracted once already. 

Should the same job be performed in the private sector, the jobs will frequently be done less expensively, taxes are then paid through the private sector.

Federal employees—who work on average a month less than private-sector workers and get paid more—are lobbying for higher pay.

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C. and I approve this message

The Heritage Foundation

Government unions know that Congress is looking for ways to nip and tuck the federal budget, and they’re counting on being left out of the deal.


“The Federal-Postal Coalition—a group representing more than two dozen federal employee unions—pleaded with Congress on Monday to spare their members in any deal related to the ‘fiscal cliff,’” Government Executive reports.

Government unions went all out to re-elect the President—the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) spent more than any other outside group on Obama’s campaign. While only about seven out of 100 private-sector workers are unionized, in government, that number rises to 36 out of 100.

Government Workers Protest

Now they’re complaining that they don’t get paid enough.

Federal employees and Members of Congress are working under a two-year “pay freeze,” though “individual employees still remain eligible for raises if they receive promotions, step increases or performance awards,” explains Government Executive. (complete article below)
