Budget deal cuts veterans pension, illegal immigrant benefits safe, Alexander votes yes to both

Budget deal cuts veterans pension, illegal immigrant benefits safe, Alexander votes yes to both

12/18/2013
0936 am EST.

TN US Senator Lamar Alexander has voted “Yes” to the  bipartisan budget bill yesterday that leaves wounded vets and retirees without 6 billion in retirement benefits over the next 10 years, interestingly enough and in contrast at the same time voted “Yes” to extend illegal immigration benefits. In addition, TN Congressman Chuck Fleischmann, (R) 3rd, voted “Yes” and Congressman Scott Dejarlais, (R), 4th District, voted against the measure.

An effort by a handful of Republicans in the US Senate failed to drum up enough support to halt cuts to pensions for our wounded warriors.

This controversial vote was a test run for the final vote in the Senate House, the final vote is expected to come this week, perhaps today.

US Senator R, Ala, gave his best effort to push an amendment through that would halt the veterans cuts by using a parliamentary procedure to force a vote on and undo the cuts for the military veterans. The move proved unsuccessful based on the likes of Lamar Alexander in the Senate and Congressman Chuck Fleischman in the House.

This move by our distinguished politicians from the great state of TN left the provision intact which takes 6 billion out of veterans hands over the next 10 years. Reminder, this is a hard earned reward for our veterans who sacrificed life and limb to finally one day retire with this benefit and now these politicians are voting to take this away? Shame on you!

In a much warranted move Sessions from Alabama wanted to eliminate 4.2 billion in aid to illegal immigrants in IRS credits. The sadness in this is our politicians have towed the PC crowd enough to wave benefits and pensions of veterans in favor of those that are not here legally.

Oddly enough at least on this cloture vote TN US Senator Bob Corker, Mr “I spend more time in the other aisle than my own” Corker voted “N0.”  There must not have been enough money available to shift his vote to the yes aisle, but there is still one more vote!

Sessions argued unsuccessfully to get other Republicans and Democrats off the fence and in typical bipartisan love fest with libs, the veterans get the shaft in
place of an illegal immigrant benefit package. In defeat mode, Sessions was quoted, “It’s not correct, and it should not happen,” he said from the Senate floor before the vote.

“By blocking my amendment, they voted to cut pensions for wounded warriors,” he said afterwards.

 “Senators in this chamber have many valid ideas for replacing these pension cuts, including my proposal to close the tax welfare loophole for illegal filers, and all deserved a fair and open hearing. But they were denied.”

He went on to add “we have cut military pensions instead of cutting welfare for illegal immigrants.”

The most upsetting comment came from Super Uber RINO Paul Ryan and his cohort Senate Budget Committee Chairman Patty Murray, D-Wash. when they argued “the GOP effort was really an attempt to kill the entire bill.” 

Wrap your heads around this ladies and gentleman. The gentleman who nearly was our Vice President on the R side of the aisle standing defiantly with liberals arguing that the only reason Sessions was being defiant and standing in the gap for veterans was because he wanted to shut down government and kill the whole bill. This is what happens when statesmen get in the way of the machine getting what they want. A merciful slaughter at the feet of our veterans.

Congressman Chuck Fleischmann and Senator Lamar Alexander have disappointed once again and have shown that protecting veterans rights is not on their minds and preserving benefits to those here illegally is a bigger concern. It was an amendment for Gods sake guys, not a change to or attempt to kill the whole bill.

We must act before it’s too late. Our country is being annihilated. Please share this information, comment below and let’s get this information out to a unknowing and seemingly uncaring society of people who prefer to ignore.

Information and the assimilation of it is our biggest weapon and a tool heavily underutilized in society today!

Obama to visit Chattanooga Tuesday with new Internet Sales Tax on his mind

Obama to visit Chattanooga Tuesday with Internet Sales Tax on his mind

Please join our protest against the fake president  and his attempt to yet again place another tax on us with the “promise” of more jobs created.

This president has done nothing for job creation in this country. He is expected to spend 4 trillion dollars this year and for every job created two people are placed on food stamps. This hardly seems like a path to prosperity.

President Obama’s push for an Internet Sales Tax (known as the Marketplace Fairness Act) during his visit to the Amazon.com fulfillment center on Tuesday the 30th. 

Amazon.com is also pushing the new Internet Sales Tax, which coincidentally was written by TN’s own Senator Lamar Alexander. It figures he would come to town to greet his brother in arms, Alexander to celebrate a new tax for Tennesseeans! After all, Lamar Alexander did vote with him 63 percent of the time.

Let’s welcome the president to Tennessee with open arms……holding signs and displaying them in disgust.

Come join the many “true Americans” and send a strong message to Obama and his minions Haslam, Alexander and Corker that his politics and presence are not welcome in Tennessee.

July 30th, 2013
EXACT TIME AND LOCATION TO BE DETERMINED!!!
7200 Discovery Dr, Chattanooga, TN

Please plan to be there with your signs waving. If you have a bullhorn, bring it too!

Brymer Creek muddy, residents see clearly the impact of Sustainable Development on our environment.

In Uncategorized on July 7, 2013 at 9:58 AM

Brymer Creek muddy again as residents see clearly the impact of Sustainable Development on our environment.

Once again the creeks are muddy as rural development progresses and the City of Cleveland presses on to build another Industrial Park in rural Cleveland Tennessee. Bradley County Tennessee has been dealt another heavy blow to the quality of our life.

The Chamber of Commerce and it’s many elected representatives that are pushing sustainable development  in our community need to hear from you about the steps they are taking that is leading to the corrosion of our city. Big  money, cronyism and greed are driving this decline in our quality of life.

Muddy runoff from an Industrial park is once again destroying our beautiful landscape and endangering the citizens of Bradley County Tennessee.

Poor inspections, careless contractors, speedy destruction and excavation of hundreds of acres of wooded land is promoting the  pollution of Brymer Creek.

The citizens of Bradley County have seen enough! Big Government forced upon us by hapless unelected bureaucrats must stop. It is time they listen to the citizenry.

Help save Brymer Creek, help save Bradley County! Stop the destruction of our land and its infrastructure.

Contact your Cleveland City Councilman,  Bradley County Commissioners, Chamber of Commerce, State Representative Kevin Brooks and Eric Watson, Senators Bob Corker and Lamar Alexander, State Senator Mike Bell and Todd Gardenhire and Governor Bill Haslam.

TDEC has been contacted. Several elected officials are seeking information as we speak. More on this as the story unfolds.

Channel 12 News and the Cleveland Daily Banner have expressed a desire to cover this story soon.

HR 933: “Monsanto Protection Act”, TN reps Corker, Alexander and Fleischmann contribute to “food apocalypse”

In Uncategorized on June 19, 2013 at 9:13 AM

HR 933: “Monsanto Protection Act”, TN reps Corker, Alexander and Fleischmann contribute to “food apocalypse”

A food apocalypse and eventual takeover of our natural food supply is fully underway and many Americans are not even aware of it, for that matter, many who voted  for it did not know it existed either or so they claim.

May 28, 2013, The Monsanto 71, a nefarious group of US Senators, such as Tennessee Senators Lamar Alexander, Bob Corker along with Cruz, Paul, Grassley and 66 others blocked the efforts of a Senate Amendment to label food that is genetically modified, altered or pesticide laden and offered by Monsanto and Sygenta. 

The measure doesnt call for the elimination of Monsanto or anything too risky politically, just the labeling of those foods you consume that may be detrimental to you. The bills intent was to only warn you that by consuming this genetically modified food you may be putting your health at risk. Simple right? A no brainer? Not so!

You know it’s your choice to eat what you want but it’s going to harm you in the process kinda labeling. Thats all and our progressive Senators Corker, Alexander and Fleischmann couldnt muster enough morality to stop it.

What influence could turn these Senators into uncaring selfish mindless jello capable of placing the interests of large corporations over the health and safety of those they represent?  

I believe the answer may be the money that these large corporations leave in the trail when they blaze through their offices. 

Large corporate money from Monsanto and Syngenta in exchange for their vote may be the culprit.

Even more disturbing is the recent action of our US House and US Senate.

“The US House of Representatives quietly passed a last-minute addition to the Agricultural Appropriations Bill for 2013 recently – including a provision protecting genetically modified seeds from litigation in the face of health risks.

The rider, which is officially known as the Farmer Assurance Provision, has been derided by opponents of biotech lobbying as the “Monsanto Protection Act,” as it would strip federal courts of the authority to immediately halt the planting and sale of genetically modified (GMO) seed crop regardless of any consumer health concerns.

The provision, also decried as a “biotech rider,” should have gone through the Agricultural or Judiciary Committees for review. Instead, no hearings were held, and the piece was evidently unknown to most prior to its approval as part of HR 993, the short-term funding bill that was approved to avoid a federal government shutdown.” 

Our elected leaders, so desperate to save the economy by extending it’s debt, they forgot to read section 735 within HR 933!

On March 26th, 2013,  Obama quietly signed this “Monsanto Protection Act” into law thus ensuring the American people have no recourse against this bio-tech giant as they fall ill by the tens of millions, and many millions will surely end up dying in what many call the greatest agricultural apocalypse in human history.

Many of our elected leaders are now claiming they didn’t even know this provision was buried deep inside a bill meant to stop the government “from shutting down!” This is a horrible shame!

Senator Jeff Merkley (D)  has called for a repeal of the Monsanto Protection Act and said this on May 20th, 2013 in a recent email,

“It’s one of the most outrageous special interest provisions in years.”

“The Monsanto Protection Act allows corporations to sell genetically-modified seeds even when federal courts have blocked them from doing so. ”

“Just May 30 th, 2013 the FDA found genetically modified Monsanto wheat in our present supply of wheat for consumption by Americans even at the defiance of the courts who have ruled this cannot happen. (Round up doesn’t even kill this wheat for goodness sake, added for emphasis!)

“Think about that! We have a process for making sure that genetically-modified seeds aren’t sold, planted and grown until we know that they don’t pose a threat to other crops or to humans.”

“The Monsanto Protection Act overrides that process. It lets Monsanto and others ignore a court order designed to protect other farmers, the environment, and human health.”

“That’s just wrong.”

“And even worse, the Monsanto Protection Act was passed in secret, stuffed quietly into the budget bill that averted a government shutdown.”

“That’s why I’ve proposed an amendment to the Farm Bill that would repeal the Monsanto Protection Act. Please join me – and demand a vote in the U.S. Senate that would end this outrageous special interest override of judicial decisions.”

-Senator Jeff Merkley

The Monsanto Protection Act was  passed in the US Senate and US House on the backs of some prominent liberal progressives like the ever present US Senator Bob Corker, Lamar Alexander and in the House from Tennessee Congressman 3rd District Chuck Fleischmann. These elected leaders should hear from you about this recent vote.

Interesting to note, US Congressman Scott DeJarlais voted NO to the Monsanto Protection Act, swimming swiftly against the TN Tide of progressives in our state that had succumbed to Corporate Welfare in exchange for the safety and welfare of all Tennesseans.

Obviously, the recent votes by Senator Corker, Alexander and Fleischmann will affect millions and possibly jeopardize our agricultural eco balance. The votes by our US Senators have labeled the mockingly as the “Monsanto 71”, not a group you would want watching your children, just sayin!

The impending apocalypse that is steaming hurriedly toward us will affect us for many years and may perhaps wipe out our generation. 

The EU, Russia and Patriots all over America are warning us of the impending food apocalypse. Here is an example of this happening from 2010 and the same folks pushed the food and modernization act onto our doorsteps.
https://bradleycountynews.wordpress.com/2011/08/19/food-police-say-illegal-to-growsharetrade-or-sell-homegrown-food/

Let’s take a futuristic look and see the dilemma and the environment these useful idiots are creating for you and me. Let’s see where a few seemingly benign votes may take us.

Into the near future- Our ability to grow and produce our own food independent of the large corporations and the federal government is upon us.  Our food chain is in some serious trouble. We will soon be looking for assistance from these large corporations and guess what they will provide it to you via your government with their own guidelines for distribution to the masses regardless of the harm it may cause you. You, in America, have not yet been without access to food but that is about to change.The food apocalypse is coming.

The narrow window of opportunity is closing to stop the likes of Monsanto, Syngenta and others take over our food supply as our elected representatives like Corker, Alexander and Fleischmann yield to the massive corporate dollars and the George Soros funded Monsanto. 

Take our bee population for instance. We may not fully understand the process our bees have on our food supply, but we can agree that if they dont pollinate our food, we dont have food, your sustenance for a future generation.

Protection of Monsanto and  Syngenta by our Legislators, the inevitable will surely happen.

The purposeful contamination of our food supply with the deliberate poisoning and destruction of 90% of feral (wild) bee population in the US has already died out, and up to 80% of domestic bees have died out too. Your food is not being pollinated and your ability to replant seeds for food is no longer there. Sterile seeds now dominate our seed supply and the heirloom seeds are safely tucked away and controlled.

The EU (European Union) Times is reporting “Undisputed evidence” that a class of neuro-active insecticides chemically related to nicotine, known as neonicotinoids, are destroying our planets bee population, and which if left unchecked could destroy our world’s ability to grow enough food to feed its population. Do I even need to interject the importance of bees in our survival and these large corporations that are killing them with these additives known as Monsanto insecticides

“So grave has this situation become, the European Commission (EC) is instituting a two-year precautionary ban (set to begin on 1 December 2013) on these“bee killing” pesticides following the lead of many  other countries, all of whom had previously banned these most dangerous of genetically altered organisms from being used on the continent.” 

Russia is warning Obama that  Monsanto is playing a major role in our demise and then we offer them protection empowered by our own US Senators and Congressmen. The food apocalypse is pending!

This chilling scenario is much like a sci-fi movie that depicts the end of the world! But it’s not a movie, it is happening now, this week.

President Putin and Russia is telling Obama that the continued protection of global seed and plant bio-genetic giants Syngenta and Monsanto in the face of a growing “bee/food apocalypse”  “will most certainly” lead to world war 3.

To date, the Obama regime is refusing to discuss the upcoming food/bee apocalypse with world leaders and Tennessee US Senators Corker, Alexander and US Congressman Chuck Fleischmann have not offered to rescind their vote on the “Monsanto Protection Act!” 

There is undeniable “undisputed evidence” that a class of neuro-active insecticides chemically related to nicotine, known as neonicotinoids, are destroying our planets bee population, and if left unchecked could destroy our world’s ability to grow enough food to feed its population. See the Bees-Food apocalypse connection?

Two of the most feared neonicotinoids being banned are Actara and Cruiser made by the Swiss global bio-tech seed and pesticide giant Syngenta AG.

In assorted reports Syngenta, along with bio-tech giants Monsanto, Bayer, Dow and DuPont, now control nearly 100% of the global market for genetically modified pesticides, plants and seeds. Thus our demise and the start of the food apocalypse.

Syngenta, inside our little apocalyptic scenario was criminally charged in Germany for concealing the fact that its genetically modified corn killed cattle in 2012. Syngenta, of course settled a class-action lawsuit in the US for $105 million after it was discovered they had contaminated the drinking supply of some 52 million Americans in more than 2,000 water districts with its “gender-bending” herbicide Atrazine. Did I mention population control inside this story line?

The American Bird Conservancy (ABC) wherein has warned our whole planet is in danger, and as we can, in part, read:

“As part of a study on impacts from the world’s most widely used class of insecticides, nicotine-like chemicals called neonicotinoids, American Bird Conservancy (ABC) is warning us “It is clear that these chemicals have the potential to affect entire food chains, citing environmental concerns of these “chemicals” pouring into our food chain as a severe health risk.

Many concerned organizations are concluding that the neonicotinoids are lethal to our bees, birds and to the aquatic systems on which they depend.

One researcher has offered that “A single corn kernel coated with a neonicotinoid can kill a songbird, a tiny grain of wheat or canola treated with the oldest neonicotinoid — called imidacloprid — can fatally poison a bird. And as little as 1/10th of a neonicotinoid-coated corn seed per day during egg-laying season is all that is needed to affect reproduction.”  We can only imagine what these insecticides will do to humans once we ingest food from our environment throughout the food chain engineered by Monsanto and Syngenta!

The levels already in our environment currently are enough to disrupt our food supply yet we continue to elect state and federal representatives that refuse to protect us from yes, a food apocalypse.

The Obama regime is currently facing legal challenges against the use of these awful chemicals.

I dont believe tightening EPA Standards is the complete answer and I really do not advocate for more federal meddling but they could at least protect us from these awful chemicals and hold the likes of Monsanto and Syngenta accountable for the release of these chemicals into our environment. 

The EPAs lack of response to these calls for accountability speak volumes about whom their bedfellows may be.

In other headlines, the European Commission is taking the tyrranical step to make it illegal to “grow, reproduce or trade” any vegetable seeds that have not been “tested, approved and accepted” by a new EU bureaucracy named the “EU Plant Variety Agency.”

It’s called the Plant Reproductive Material Law, and it attempts to put the government in charge of virtually all plants and seeds. Home gardeners who grow their own plants from non-regulated seeds would be considered criminals under this law.”  Sounds eerily like the US “Food and Safety Food Modernization Act” passed in 2010.

Think about this! The best solution is our worst nightmare, the federal government potentially taking over all food and seeds to prevent a Monsanto and Sygenta takeover! 

Where does that leave us who like to eat and find it necessary for our own survival? Yes, with our hand outstretched begging for assistance from our federal government, to literally feed us.

The Obama regime, our elected reps are seemingly oblivious to the high speed bullet train in the form a food-bee apocalypse headed our way. But just ask a farmer, a beekeeper or expert what the status of our food supply is. They will tell you the truth.

While we wonder how these atrocious large companies get their power and influence, you need look no further than the Obama filled key posts filled with Monsanto people. They are abundant within this regime and a roll call would only bore you.

While Russia is making unprecedented discoveries of
Breast Cancer and organ failure links to Monsanto genetically modified corn, leading to it’s ban the US consumer unaware, continues to lap up corn like a hungry dog unfed.

In conclusion to my story telling time, the Obama regime, the Monsanto 71, Bob Corker, Lamar Alexander, Chuck Fleischmann and many other elected reps seemingly do not have the best interest of our country at hand. 

Their obvious attempts with their sworn vote to destroy this country is beyond rational thinking. 

The greenback has  clouded their vision and distorted their values, even more amazing and perplexing to me is the amount of gratitude we still give these people despite what they are doing to this country.

DOJ/FBI to criminalize free speech in TN, imprisonment for negative posts against political Islam

In Uncategorized on June 3, 2013 at 8:49 AM

DOJ/FBI to criminalize free speech in TN, imprisonment for negative posts against political Islam

Lurking in the hills of Manchester, just southeast of Nashville Tennessee is the setting of what many believe could be the showdown to the eventual realization that our first amendment, the Bill of Rights and the Constitution are a thing of the past.

The belief that our nations future, our ability to express ourselves in free speech lies in the hands of a few people within the Department of Justice and the FBI while representing and protecting a political system that has serious links to the Muslim Brotherhood.

For a moment, when I first heard of this Muslim Diversity acceptance meeting in Manchester TN, I thought a dialogue might be established and a  path to communication might be open to discuss our differences as Islam attempts to assimilate into our culture. Perhaps a hope that if different cultures somehow meet in the middle something good may come from it adopting the slogan “to COEXIST.” 

The fleeting belief that to live in America would mean that the first amendment would stand for us all and our nation would continue to spin as it has for more than 250 years under the consistent application of the Bill of Rights and the Constitution.

Little did I know that the table has already been set, the meal ordered and I get whatever is delivered to me. 

 My opinion, my rights placed on hold because a political system of Islam is demanding it and we have a broken system of justice that assures them their rights only will be protected.

The great state of Tennessee is being manhandled by an overreaching federal government with no respect for the Constitution or the state boundaries that restrain them. Coupled with that the fact that we, by large do not have elected leaders that will step in and stop this all out assault on our country. 

Quickly the realization sets in that this was not about how can we learn from Americans or how we can better serve the needs of our community but how “strangers” to our country can enforce their beliefs on the majority inside a constitutional republic seemingly despondent to the laws of our land.

How can these Americans who are offered the same rights as me somehow expect me to put aside my rights because their political views do not sync with mine.

When I put the puzzle together it was not about religious tolerance but about Americans becoming sharia compliant, tolerant and accepting of a political system that does not honor our Constitution. We are now being led into the abyss where the rights of many are being ignored. The path that we are taking is surely one of demise when we selectively protect political systems ignoring or stripping others of that same right.

The shell game is over the right one lifted and the pattern of disillusionment is revealed. Political Islam and it’s tenets of acceptance and diversity have been uncovered and exposed.

The DOJ and the FBI are once again bullying their way into Tennessee and basically ignoring the rights of Native Tennesseans and enforcing their warped version of justice in a free country via a sovereign state. 

Unfairly, unevenly pulling rank on everyday citizens while “having the backs” of these Islamic Americans with sinister associations is way beyond what I can comprehend in one afternoon of research.

Suspending the Constitutional rights and beliefs of roughly 99 percent for a demanding political system representing 1 percent doesnt quite meet the definition of a fair trade.

Governor Bill Haslam, ex Governor and now US Senator Lamar Alexander are primary players in this scheme to hijack our constitution and placate to the minority. Governor Haslam and Alexander have been given a pass for way to long on this issue as well as others who have bought into the deception. They should be called out in their involvement of this unconstitutional rape of our rights and met with deep resistance come election day.

In a small town called Manchester Tennessee, US Attorney for East TN Bill Killian and the Federal Bureau of Investigation will be holding a meeting to tell Tennesseans of their rights, or should I correct myself and say the rights of the political Islamists.

Killian and the FBI want us to know it is against federal law to speak out against political Islam. What federal law? Where is it against the law to speak your mind in a free America? The mere thought that the DOJ and the FBI can come into small town America and say what we can and cannot do is preposterous and begs one to ask what are their motives inside our Constitutional Republic and where they are aligned?

Why is a US Attorney with close ties  to AG Eric Holder addressing this issue in TN ? 

Why is the government suppressing the right to free speech in favor of the rights of political Islam?

Why are the local papers in Tullahoma embracing this idea that free speech should be squelched?

Why is the DOJ and the FBI telling us where our ethics must lie? 

Why and who emblazoned the US government to intimidate the citizens of the United States by suggesting that writing blogs, posting free speech in social media that it’s a federal crime to state facts about political Islam?

This is about more than religion and “culture”, this is about suppression of freedom of speech inside the greatest nation in the world……period!  

Next up to the stage, The United Nations and it’s “Declaration of Human Rights.”

For many years and in recent history the UN has attempted to convince the US to give up it’s first amendment rights and go along with the rest of the “international bodies” and adopt a law against blasphemy called the Defamation of Religions Law! 

This law has been struck down inside the UN by the United States on several occasions. 

I believe the DOJ, FBI and AMAC along with the OIC and CAIR are using this event in Manchester TN to be a flashpoint for legislation at the state and national level.

The DOJ and the FBI seemingly has a newfound authority and jurisdiction enforcing international laws on the states under the guise that the laws they speak of are from the federal level of government. The Defamation of Religions Law has never been ratified within the United States. 

In other words, you are forcing Americans to adhere to a law that doesn’t even exist nor has it had a chance in hades of becoming law in TN let alone the United States but yet you pretend it exists to meet your political agenda.

These actions inside a totalitarian state might go unnoticed but to be able to pull this off inside America will meet heavy resistance. 

Enforcing a law that only exists in the minds of globalists intent on ruining this great country with an international handout is visible to the naked eye and will not happen in Tennessee, not in the United States.

Nearly 47 percent of the countries and territories in the world have laws or policies that penalize blasphemy, which is in political Islam punishable by death! 

THE UNITED STATES DOES NOT AND WILL NOT punish  Americans for exercising their rights to free speech.

Please pay attention to this international law called “Defamation of Religion Law!” I personally believe this is the path to losing our freedom and our first amendment rights. 

If they are successful in little Manchester Tennessee, I believe they will have the precedence to masterfully bypass the Bill of Rights and the Constitution and change the face of our nation forever, the US becoming Sharia compliant.

We must rely on our legislators and elected leaders to make the right decisions.

Interestingly, within days of this meeting, June 4th, Barrack Obama is expected to sign into
Law the UNs Small Arms Treaty! Coincidence? I believe fate or destiny would be the favored word!

Plan to be there! 

June 4th, 2013, Muslim Diversity acceptance class with DOJ/FBI considering making it a crime leading to imprisonment for posting negative remarks about Islam.

Call at high noon: Leave our guns alone

In Uncategorized on December 27, 2012 at 10:38 AM

Que in old Western music here! You know the one with the whistling noise, the rattlesnake slithering by and the desert debris floating across the earth with a coyote howling in the night at a full moon.

Now transport your self to 2012 and imagine that a band of no gooders just rode into your town, the government on horseback, if you can imagine, Obama in a black cowboy hat riding a black stallion with his posse Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi. A cigarette neatly tucked into Barrack Husseins Obamas mouth and from the smoke he whispers in a breathy Clint Eastwood style…….I’m here……….to take………your guns!!!!

Quick glances around the scene, music intensifies. One person afar off in the distance is seen running in the alleyway and darting into the sherrifs office. “Sherrif, there is a badman on horseback, just rode up, saying he’s gonna take our guns!”

Sherrif rises from his chair in the corner, pats his revolver strapped snuggly to his side and he pokes back “not today he ain’t!” “Where’s the varmint?”

You get the setting! Now time for you to act!

Across the nation, and in every city, coordinated by many within the local, state and national Tea Party Patriots are coordinating a call every day for 7 days to call the US Capitol Switchboard at “high noon” to tell out representatives to leave our guns alone. In my immediate area and state that would be Congressmen Scott DeJarlais and Chuck Fleischmann and Senators Bob Corker and Lamar Alexander and of course Governor Bill Haslam.

Wherever you are at today and for the next 7 working days, please help us make a call at high noon everyday till the first of the year. We need to make a strong statement that our guns are not negotiable. This ploy doesn’t work unless you call and in great numbers.

Call today and let’s crash the switchboards! You may have to call several times but hey, it’s your guns that are being threatened, our only protection against a tyrannical government. Call today, call here in a few minutes, call for the next 7 days at high noon.

Come on America! Get busy!

If you want to save our 2nd Amendment call 202-224-3121! It’s the US Capitol Switchboard! Then call your representatives and tell them hands off your freedom and hands off your guns!! Do this today (Dec 27) at high noon! Then keep it up each day at noon times 7 days or as long as you want to.

This message sent to me by Lynn Moss, a Tennessee State Coordinator of the Tea Party Patriots via Mark Hager of the NC TPPs. Thanks guys for getting this started!

Democrat Party disavows its nominee, the voters love this guy

In Uncategorized on August 10, 2012 at 8:03 AM

In what could be called one of the strangest races in a while has yet the opportunity to be a huge upset with perhaps the greatest opportunity for the Democratic Party and they disavow their strongest candidate.

Mark Clayton has won the democratic nomination by obtaining 30 percent of the vote and nearly 50,000 votes and the Democratic Party tosses him because he happens to be rooted in his faith that states that marriage is between one man and one woman. This is getting extremely hard to believe.

One party, any party, but this time happens to be the Democratic Party throwing away 50,000 legitimate citizens votes, calling for a new election to get “the right man” in office is probably the saddest statement I have heard in a long time.

I will dare say that not everyone in the Democratic Party is gay or believes in same sex marriage. Then I will further that statement and say I can dare say that not everyone in the Democratic Party agrees with Forrester and Bilbo that if you happen to believe that when anyone marries they would marry the same sex. I can also say with great certainty the majority or at least a great percentage of Democrats are married to the opposite sex and perhaps all or most within leadership positions married the opposite. Its about personal choice as long as you dont say it?

Does this make them complicit with the hate groups of which they associate Mr Clayton of being involved in? Just because they “discriminated” against gay people and married the opposite sex, doesn’t that qualify them as a “hater” too?

Mr Clayton made a very strong and interesting statement at a recent press conference where he was rebutting his disemboweling, I mean disavowing where he made the following statement and it’s from memory but it went something like this, referring to the TN constitution, “doesn’t this make the state of Tennessee a hate group because the state of Tennessee has it in their state constitution that they believe marriage is between a man and a woman? What a profound statement. Let’s take that to another level! Does going to church make you a part of a hate group? Does getting married to the opposite sex in a church make you part of a hate group ? Is the Church of God a hate group? The Baptist convention? Mormons? Latter Day Saints? Being a Christian in most churches? Is Jesus Christ himself the hate group leader? You can tell how distorted and listless our society has become when you contemplate the preceding questions and scenarios. We label everything hate that doesn’t meet someone else’s views of how we see things, doesn’t that make us all haters? If I personally believe that you can marry anyone they want yet my church and state says I should marry the opposite sex does that mean I hate myself?

Who died and left any party with enough power that they can feel they can negate tens of thousands of votes by clearly likeminded voters? Who became the self appointed ethics guru that says unless you vote for gay rights or non gay rights for that matter that you can all of a sudden tell me my vote doesnt count. If I like a man or a woman, my vote should count and if a large percentage as in Mr Mark Claytons case vote for and happen to stand behind a candidate that doesn’t believe the way you believe or the way that you think they should vote should have no bearing on whether my vote is legitimate or not. My vote that wa cast is mine and you can’t take that simple fact away.

Have you heard of the recent “Chick fil A” phenomenon? All parties can learn something from this. The message was loud and strong, ” I can and will cast my vote for any issue or candidate that I darn well please and you or a paid lobbyist or activist within a devisive group are not going to tell me what to do because you happen to have a strong viewpoint of how you want your world to look. I have a choice and I can still make it as long as America remains free. So take your own narrow minded ethical sliding scale of what you feel America should look like and stuff it where the sun don’t shine.”

I personally think you should have a choice in who you choose to be your mate, just as Mark Clayton has done and stated and as well as Mr Forrester and Bilbo. The conflict comes when you wanna say I am wrong when I do make up my own mind and choose! See the double standard here? I like it as long as it’s my viewpoint or your wish?

All that said to say this! The Democratic Party is bypassing the greatest opportunity to win the US Senate seat in a long time. Personally, and according to his voting record, Bob Corker is just as much, if not more of a Democrat as he is a Republican and that goes for Lamar Alexander too. But they are all Americans which gives us a choice to vote for who we want despite the parties perceived notion that they know how you should vote.

The Democratic Party had an excellent opportunity to capitalize on a large block of grassroots voters on both sides of the aisles that are attempting to let their parties know we still have a choice regardless of what lobbyist is blowing in your ear to make your leg tingle. We vote for who we want in office and we don’t want you to interfere with that process.

The Democratic party would be so much stronger and influential in this area if it listened to it’s constituency and at least acknowledged. Not everyone is anti gay or gay for that matter. There are still a great deal of people who just believe the way they believe and they don’t want you forcing your agenda and creating an environment of choosing your ethical standard over my own beliefs. We need to restore the party of old! The party my grandpa was proud to wear! One that was respectful of people and if we differed, we agreed to differ yet realize we were going to the same place!

http://www.claytonforus.com/#!home/mainPage

The Democratic Party released this statement in response to Clayton’s press conference. 
“We are committed to reforms that makes candidate vetting more proactive and more transparent so that we can prevent candidates who are not Democrats from ever getting on the Democratic ballot in the future,” said TNDP Executive Committee member Jim Bilbo
“We have already begun our review of the process that failed us this year and nearly failed us in the past, and we pledge to fix it,” Bilbo said. “We owe it to Democratic supporters, candidates and volunteers to enact reforms so that extreme candidates who don’t represent our core Democratic, middle class values may never take advantage of our open elections again.”

Clayton gets grilled again by local press and within gis own party!

http://www.timesfreepress.com/news/2012/aug/08/tn-democrats-may-be-stuck-with-clayton/

Truth be known, polish this guy a little, give him his voice back and he could win you a US Senate seat. Stripping him of legitimate votes and replacing it with your own ethical bias and narrow-mindedness just lost you the seat. The grassroots within the Democratic party stopped growing when a few elitist are left calling the shots for a vast majority of constituents. Sounds to me new leadership is needed to listen to the people that are loudly saying “I like this guy!”

Again, just my opinion and we all know what opinions are like? Right?

34 Senators say LOST Treaty dead, Chamber of Commerce says “it will pass”

In Uncategorized on August 4, 2012 at 2:33 PM

Never before in my recent memory have I seen the United Nations and the Chamber of Commerce work so closely to advance and perhaps get a treaty to fruition as I have the UNs Law of The Sea Treaty!

The overwhelming sense here is the Chamber saying to the United Nations, I will help you and I will obey your commands.

Follow the money trail and you will see the importance of why the two international powerhouses want this treaty to pass in the United States Senate.

Trillions of dollars, loss of our property rights, loss of rights to hundreds of miles of seabeds containing trillions in oil and gas rich property and will result in a loss of royalties and eventual distribution of wealth bound over to the UN for distribution. This move would make the UN an international power with unlimited powers, thanks to the Chamber of Commerce.

I have long said the Chamber is not our friend and are dead set on ruining our economy for the greater good of the collective. The Chamber of Commerce pushing for this treaty in light of the international picture further supports the bigger picture of taking control of the US economy and dispersing it to the world so that our collective wealth can be easily used by the world, thereby leveling a current injustice.

Read below the news articles and blogs that I have pulled out and emphasized relative quotes from those articles. You can easily see that LOST passing in the US Senate will be hugely detrimental to our economy and our future wealth and stability.

Redistribution of wealth! The royalties will be passed off to the international UN authorities and dispersed to poorer countries assisting with their poverty, a stated goal of the UN per Agenda 21 and other of it’s many policies.

Environmentalists have said that if the treaty passes and America is able to “tap” into unaccountable unmeasureable “hydrocarbon reserves” thus further degrading our environment with huge carbon loads lawsuits will ensue, further harming our economy and further contributing as a source to spread Americas wealth to the rest of the world against our will. This will only further our economic decline and drastically affect out way of life. Less for us and our economy means less in your pockets.
https://bradleycountynews.wordpress.com/2012/05/22/uns-lost-treaty-debate-begins-on-floor-of-us-senate-tomorrow/

Quote from the article below by the Chamber of Commerce:

The influential U.S. Chamber of Commerce supports the treaty, saying it would be a boon to the U.S. economy by providing domestic companies “the legal certainty and stability they need to hire and invest.”

“At any given time, hundreds of U.S. flag ships and ships owned by U.S. companies rely on the freedom of navigation rights codified in the treaty while crossing the world’s oceans,” said chamber President and Chief Executive Thomas J. Donohue, testifying last month before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. “While we can always rely on the U.S. Navy to ensure lawful passage of U.S.-flagged and owned ships, it only makes sense to join with the international community in establishing and protecting lawful passage on the high seas.”
http://m.washingtontimes.com/news/2012/jul/16/demint-says-law-sea-treaty-now-dead/?page=all

More conservative Republicans disagree including Joe Miller, Murkowski’s former rival for her Senate seat.

“To transfer two-thirds of the earth’s surface over to the governance of the United Nations is just a crazy thought,” Miller said Thursday. “And whether or not there’s some short-term economic benefit, (it) is a terrible thing to do, if you love this country and are really supporting its continued sovereignty.”

The United Nations Ban Ki Moons statement in favor of LOST, just as it’s chief consultant, the Chamber of Commerce.
http://www.un.org/News/Press/docs/2012/sgsm14340.doc.htm

Chamber of Commerce quote about the LOST Treaty from the article below:
According to Donahue, passing the treaty is vital to America’s economic and security interests. He says that without it, the United States will not have a seat at the table when it comes to developing offshore oil and gas beyond its 200-mile territorial limit.  
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/48477065/ns/local_news-anchorage_ak/t/us-chamber-commerce-head-law-sea-treaty-will-pass/

The Chamber of Commerces statement to US Senate about LOST Treaty:
http://www.foreign.senate.gov/imo/media/doc/Donohue%20Testimony.pdf

Senator Bob Corker even chimed in with Chamber Donahue:
Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) appeared to acknowledge as much when he questioned Jack Gerard, the president and CEO of the American Petroleum Institute.

“It’s a bit of an out-of-body experience to hear you testify about the administration doing something to help the oil industry,” Corker said.” he went on to conclude, “I’m very neutral on this,” Corker concluded. “I’m here to learn.” Sure you are Mt Corker!
http://thehill.com/blogs/global-affairs/un-treaties/235345-chamber-of-commerce-ceo-says-hes-behind-the-push-for-us-accession-to-law-of-the-sea-treaty

Perhaps the real answer as to why Corker will not state his position on LOST! too much money out there to say no!

Opponents argue that the treaty infringes upon U.S. sovereignty and forces the United States to abide by international environmental restrictions, while making American companies pay royalties to a United Nations body. With a slew of U.S. businesses coming out in support of the treaty, however, one Insider noted: “When the military, the business community, environmentalists, and the [Chamber of Commerce] are all on board, that’s a pretty good sign.”
http://mobile.nationaljournal.com/nationalsecurity/national-security-insiders-senate-should-ratify-law-of-the-sea-treaty-20120730

Recent tweets detected have seen an emphasis on exposing the advantages of LOST on current business. Funny thing, the UN emphasizes it’s because of climate change and pollution. You can bet your buttocks that if LOST passes in the Senate the US will suffer immeasurable fines for tapping into those hydrocarbon reserves! The UN can’t lose, they will see wealth beyond what we can tally because of the Chambers assistance with this scam.

Tweet from Chamber of Commerce
Shale facts: In 2010, unconventional gas activity supported 1 million jobs. Just think of what it could do today- bit.ly/MUE2Lj

In conclusion, when you hear the Chamber of Commerce say confidently that LOST will pass and say it so confidently, you can bet they will be shifting loads of money to our Senators to sway their opinion. Keep an eye on the opportunists who may change their minds then follow the money trail back to them. It would be safe to say and it is again my opinion only but Senators Corker and Alexander will be at the front of the line, waiting to latch on to that money nipple.

Get on the phone or email your state senators now and ask they not support LOST!

RINO/Conservative Analysis of Corker and Poskevich provides many answers

In Government on July 13, 2012 at 11:19 AM

In a political landscape where everyone just right of the middle wants to be a conservative. Everyone claims to love the Constitution and in some way speak of an admiration for the founding fathers.

We laud politicians for these values because we tend to believe what they say or allow a liberal press to place the tag on them to cover up the more progressive side of a candidate to make them more palatable to a growing “conservative” citizenry!

One true mark of a real conservative is his actions once in office and that is his or her voting record. You can boast all day but the proof is often in the pudding. A RINO, a Republican In Name Only is identified and exposed as non conservative with their voting record, regardless of how loud they yell they are. That voting record is the tell tale sign that labels them forever.

Recently, I was asked to evaluate and compare US Senator Bob Corker, the incumbent and Zack Poskevich, the challenger. I said great! I will just pull their voting records and see how they have voted in the past. The dilemma is one has ever ran for office and currently holds the US Senate seat in Tennessee the other has never held an office and has never been on the DC stage. So how could I compare the incumbent Bob Corker and the challenger Zack Poskevich?

I beat my noggin on a wall for a few minutes, I came to this conclusion. Besides a headache, let’s look at Bobs voting record and then ask Zack to give us honest answers as if in office and pseudo cast a vote on the same issues as Mr Corker.

I sent a sample of key issues and personal questions to Poskevich campaign and asked him to answer them accordingly and then compare and see how they measure up side by side! This turned out most interesting.

The Corker camp did not respond to many questions, just replied with a campy form letter briefly explaining to me what he thought the bill meant. Regardless, I figured the survey to Zack and Bobs voting record would be ample enough to draw the comparison I desired.

WWZD or WDBD? What would Zack do or What did Bob do? Ok, I did claim I would have fun with this. Now follow me cause I think I’m going somewhere! Where? Oh yeah, to see if Bob or Zack can call themselves a true conservative and fairly represent Tennessee in a US Senate seat and give you sufficient information to make an educated decision of who should be representing us in DC. Simple enough?

What to ask? What to pull out of the voting records? You think writing a blog is easy!

Let’s ease into this like a snake shedding its skin, slow and deliberate with the act and feeling prettier on the other side.

Healthcare? A topic on every bodies mind. A huge tax burden placed on every business and person in the US and get rid of one of the most effective healthcare systems in the world! Who would vote for that? Right?

Repeal Obamacare?
Poskevich: Yes, Full Repeal and Defund until it is repealed, would be a top priority.
Corker: Several emails over the last few months have dodged the question and a patented cookie cutter response given. I understand in the last few days he has said he would repeal the bill.

Answer the question already Corker! The answer is YES because its the right thing for Tennesseans!

Vote against LOST treaty?
Posekevich: Would vote NO on L.O.S.T., states would be a top priority.
Corker: Has dodged this question numerous times by email and documented on video many of which is posted on You Tube.

Why would we hesitate on the largest bill ever promoted by the United Nations to give away our sovereignty and not to mention trillions in fuel reserves to a foreign entity? Why not just say NO and quickly? No brainer!

NDAA?
Poskevich: No
Corker: Yes

Wow! The Bill of Rights just voted away by Mr Corker! This bill does it for me and makes my decision on who to vote for very easy! He gave the US GVT the authority to detain any citizen for any reason!
http://www.dailykos.com/story/2011/12/02/1041911/-National-Defense-Authorization-Act-Detention-of-US-Citizens-Feinstein-Amd-Text-Debate

Stance on abortion?
Corker: Was for it and then against it!
Poskevich: 100% Pro-Life, No tax dollars for abortion or for abortion providing facilities such as Planned Parenthood; would sponsor or co-sponsor an Amendment to the US Constitution making abortion illegal

An analysis of Bob Corkers voting record on abortion:
Abortion: In the 2006 primary campaign, Corker’s opponents said that he has changed his view on abortion since his first Senate campaign in 1994.[54] Corker responded that he “was wrong in 1994” when he said that the government should not interfere with an individual’s right to an abortion, stating that he now believes that life begins at conception.[54] Corker now says he opposes abortion rights except when the life of the mother is endangered or in cases of rape and incest.[54] In the 2006 general election, Corker received the endorsement of the National Right to Life Committee, but the state branch of the group, Tennessee Right to Life, refused to endorse him, calling him a “pro-abortion” politician.[55]

Any real estate issue or controversies outstanding?
Poskevich: No
Corker: Yes
 
Any ongoing lawsuits?
Poskevich: No
Corker: Yes
 
Would he ever use a gvt position for personal gain?
Poskevich: No
Corker: Yes and he did!

An analysis of Bob Corkers problems as mayor and now as a US Senator:
On September 18, 2006, a Memphis, Tennessee newspaper, The Commercial Appeal, reported that Corker’s attorneys acquired city authorization to cut a road through the protected property owned by Corker in July 2003 while Corker was mayor.[68] City records show that Corker’s attorneys won concessions from the city as details of the deal were worked out, much of which was done in private.[68]

Corker’s campaign manager has said that a blind trust kept Corker from the details of the project.[68]

On October 13, 2006, lawyers involved in the case announced a settlement agreement. Details of the settlement were not announced, but court records indicate that a portion of the settlement involved a 45-day option for the Tennessee Environmental Council to purchase over 13 acres (53,000 m2) of the land in dispute that the Council hopes to dedicate for public use.[69]

Has Zack ever hid any papers to hinder an investigation?
Poskevich: No
Corker: Yes

Missing papers

On September 9, 2006, The Commercial Appeal reported that official records from both Corker’s 2001 to 2005 service as mayor and his 1996 service as state finance commissioner are missing.[70] The missing records include letters written and received by Corker during a six month period in 1996 and e-mails written and received by Corker in his official capacity as mayor between 2001 and 2005.[70]

Some of the e-mails were discovered on his former assistant’s computer by The Commercial Appeal in October 2006.[71]
 
Any blind trusts that we don’t know of?
Poskevich: No
Corker: Yes

Blind trust
On October 11, 2006, The Commercial Appeal reported that the blind trust that Corker set up to run his businesses to avoid conflicts of interest while he was mayor “may not have been all that blind”.[71] According to e-mails discovered by the Appeal (some of which had previously presumed to be lost):

“Corker met often with employees from his private companies while mayor from 2001 to 2005, and he shared business tips with others. Corker also got help organizing his 2001 mayoral campaign from City Hall, where a government secretary passed on voting lists and set up meetings for the millionaire commercial real estate developer.”[71]

The e-mails show that Corker often met with officials from his private company, the Corker Group, which was part of the blind trust, while he was mayor.[71] When asked about these e-mails by the Appeal, Corker said that he thought the blind trust had “worked very well” and that he had sold most of his business holdings so that he could avoid the appearance of conflicts of interest in the Senate.

Corker supports broad Second Amendment rights and “appointing Federal judges who practice judicial restraint.”
http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bob_Corker#section_7

Arms Trade treaty?
Corker: has avoided the question!
Poskevich: No on the Small Arms Treaty, he will always vote No on any treaty that is unconstitutional or destroys American sovereignty
 
Corker analysis:
Why can’t he just say no! Hesitation tells me he sees something he likes and wants to take advantage of it!
Senator Moran and his co-signatories have made an important and serious contribution to the debate over the Arms Trade Treaty. As the treaty moves forward in 2012, the Administration and the other nations negotiating it will have to bear these concerns in mind.
http://bobcorker.com/news/?id=217

Would you vote 61 percent of time with OBAMA?
Corker: Yes and he has.
Poskevich: Me and Obama are polar opposites; I will never compromise Constitutional Principles to reach across the aisle, it would be Obama who would have to compromise if the two end up voting the same
 
Voted down the line with Obama 61 percent of the time! RINO? duh!
http://m.bizjournals.com/nashville/#/articles/view/page_7227481
 
TARP?
Corker: Yes
Poskevich: No

Corker voted for TARP, Cash for Clunkers, raising the debt ceiling
Corker voted to ratify the START Treaty with Russia and so far has not committed one way or the other on how he stands on the LOST Treaty. 

Bob Corker also voted to confirm Eric Holder and recently confirmed Jesse Furman and anti-2nd amendment judge to the federal bench
Corker has voted with Obama 61%.
His rhetoric just doesn’t match with his record.  He also co-sponsored a bill with Lamar Alexander to designate more of the Cherokee National Forest as Wildlands.  

Cash for Clunkers?
Corker: Yes
Poskevich: No

Cash for Clunkers Funding.
H.R. 3435 would authorize an additional $2 billion for the “Cash for Clunkers” vehicle trade-in program. Under the “Cash for Clunkers” program, consumers would trade in their old cars for more fuel efficient vehicles. (Congress passed the original Cash For Clunkers in June (see our July 20, 2009 issue). After running out of funds almost immediately, Congress quickly introduced yet another bill (H.R. 3435) that would provide an additional $2 billion for the “Cash for Clunkers” program. Under the program consumers were offered rebates of up to $4,500 if they traded in their old cars for more fuel-efficient ones. The vehicles traded in were destroyed, meaning cars not ready for the junkyard would be taken off the road, reducing the stock o
used vehicles and inflating the prices of used cars.) The Senate passed H.R. 3435 on August 6, 2009 by a vote of 60-37 (Roll Call 270). The federal government should not be subsidizing the car industry and because it is unconstitutional and wasteful.
Bob Corker voted YES.
 
START treaty with Russia?
Corker: Yes
Poskevich: No

With Russia? Need I say more?
 
Vote to confirm Eric Holder?
Corker: Yes
Poskevich: No
 
Hello? Fast and Furious?

Would Zack confirm a federal judge that is a known anti second amendment advocate?
Corker: Yes
Poskevich: No, Zach would have never voted to confirm Jesse Furman, or any activist judge

Maybe the hesitation on the Arms Trade Treaty?
 
Would Zack authorize war without approval of Congress?
Corker: Yes
Poskevich: No

Funds for War, Welfare, Etc.
The Supplemental Appropriations bill (H.R. 2642) was agreed to 92-2 (Roll Call 162) on June 26, 2008. Such bills fund unforeseen needs after an annual budget has been approved. However, regular use of emergency supplemental bills to pay for never-ending wars, domestic welfare, and infrastructure programs has made the annual budget a misleading indicator of spending intentions. This $186.5 billion measure includes $161.8 billion of additional funding for operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. The remaining $24.7 billion is for domestic programs including tornado, flood, and hurricane relief efforts. It would also expand veterans’ education benefits, expand unemployment benefits, and delay shifting some Medicaid costs to the states. Congress continues to fund a war it never authorized under Article I, Section 8, of the Constitution. Also, the federal government is unconstitutionally involved as an individual and corporate insurer at taxpayer expense.
Bob Corker voted YES.

Authority for Military Action.
During consideration of a small-business bill (S. 493), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) moved to send the bill to the Foreign Relations Committee with instructions to insert his amendment expressing the sense of the Senate that “the President does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation.” Paul’s amendment was in response to President Obama undertaking U.S. military action in Libya without congressional authorization. The Senate tabled (killed) Rand Paul’s motion on April 5, 2011 by a vote of 90 to 10 (Roll Call 50). The U.S. Constitution assigns to Congress the power “to declare war.”
Bob Corker voted YES  ( To Table or Kill the bill)
 
Peru Free Trade Agreement?
Corker: Yes
Poskevich: No

Peru Free Trade Agreement.
The Peru Free Trade Agreement (H.R. 3688) is another in a series of free-trade agreements to transfer the power to regulate trade (and other powers as well) to regional arrangements. A prime example is the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). However, as noted by the House Ways and Means Committee report on H.R. 3688, the Peru Free Trade Agreement is the first U.S. FTA to include “in its core text fully enforceable commitments by the Parties to adopt, maintain, and enforce basic international labor standards, as stated in the 1988 ILO Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work.” The ILO, or International Labor Organization, is a UN agency. The Senate passed the Peru Free Trade Agreement on December 4, 2007 by a vote of 77-18 (Roll Call 413). So-called free trade arrangements threaten our national independence and harm our economy.
Bob Corker voted YES.

Warrantless searches FISA?
Corker: Yes
Poskevich: No

Warrantless Searches.
S. 2248, the FISA Amendments Act of 2008, passed 68-29 on February 12, 2008 (Roll Call 20). The bill would amend the 1978 Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act to effectively give the executive branch of the federal government a blank check to eavesdrop on telephone calls and e-mail messages between people in foreign countries and those in the United States. The bill includes retroactive immunity for telecommunications companies that have collaborated with federal agencies in the warrantless surveillance of American citizens. Warrantless wiretaps are a violation of the Fourth Amendment, which protects Americans against unreasonable searches and seizures, and requires that any searches be conducted only upon issuance of a warrant under conditions of probable cause. Moreover, Article I, Section 9 of the Constitution forbids “ex post facto laws” – laws having a retroactive effect.
Bob Corker voted YES.

Warrantless Searches.
H.R. 6304, the bill to revamp the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), would allow warrantless electronic surveillance, including monitoring telephone conversations and e-mails, of foreign targets, including those communicating with American citizens in the United States. The final version of the bill would not explicitly grant immunity to telecommunications companies that have assisted President Bush’s warrantless surveillance program. But it would require courts to dismiss lawsuits against such companies if there is “substantial evidence” they were insured in writing the program was legal and authorized by the president. The provision would almost certainly result in the dismissal of the lawsuits. The Senate passed H.R. 6304 on July 9, 2008 by a vote of 69-28 (Roll Call 168). Warrantless searches are a violation of the Fourth Amendment, which protects Americans against unreasonable searches and seizures, and requires that any searches be conducted only upon issuance of a warrant under conditions of probable cause. Moreover, Article I, Section 9 of the Constitution forbids “ex post facto laws” laws having a retroactive effect.
Bob Corker voted YES.
 
Min wage?
Corker: Yes
Poskevich: No

Corker analysis of Minimum Wage.
The minimum wage bill (H.R. 2) would raise the federal minimum wage from $5.15 to $7.25 an hour over the course of two years. The bill would also provide $8.3 billion in small-business tax incentives. The House passed its version of H.R. 2 on January 10. The Senate passed the minimum-wage increase by a vote of 94-3 (Roll Call 42) on February 1, 2007. It is unconstitutional to prohibit citizens from working for less than a government-set wage.
Bob Corker voted YES. 

COPS funding?
Corker: Yes
Poskevich: No

COPS Funding.
Joseph Biden (D-Del.) offered an amendment to the fiscal 2008 budget resolution (Senate Concurrent Resolution 21) that would authorize a $1.2 billion increase in federal funds to support the Community-Oriented Policing Services (COPS) program. The Senate passed the Bide amendment by a vote of 65-33 (Roll Call 110) on March 23, 2007. Providing federal aid to local law enforcement programs is not only unconstitutional, but it also further federalizes the police system.
Bob Corker voted YES. 
 
UN funding increase?
Corker: Yes
Poskevich:No, “We need to get the UN out of the US and the US out of the UN.” Zach Poskevich http://youtu.be/04mm1MqqoCA
 
UN “Peacekeeping” Increase.
During consideration of the foreign-aid appropriations bill (H.R. 2764), Senator John Ensign (R- Nev.) introduced an amendment to strike a provision in H.R. 2764 that would increase the limit on the U.S. share of UN “peacekeeping” operations from 25 percent to 27.1 percent. The Senate rejected the Ensign amendment to H.R. 2764 on September 6, 2007, by a vote of 30-63 (Roll Call 317). The United States should not be funding UN “peacekeeping” period — let alone increasing the amount.
Bob Corker voted NO.

Protect America Act?
Corker: Yes
Poskevich: No

Protect America Act.
The Protect America Act (S. 1927) would amend the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) to allow warrantless electronic eavesdropping on communications where at least one individual is based outside of the United States. The Senate passed S. 1927 on August 3, 2007, by a vote of 60-28 (Roll Call 309). Warrantless surveillance of American citizens is a violation of the Fourth Amendment’s prohibition “against unreasonable searches and seizures.”
Bob Corker voted YES. 
 
Debt limit increase?
Corker: Yes
Poskevich: No

Debt Limit Increase.
This bill (House Joint Resolution 43) would increase the national debt limit to an astronomical $9.8 trillion, an $850 billion increase. This increase would be the fifth time the national debt was raised since 2002, representing about a $3 trillion increase in just the last five years. The Senate passed House Joint Resolution 43 on September 27, 2007, by a vote of 53-42 (Roll Call 354). Raising the public debt limit by $850 billion facilitates continued, gross fiscal irresponsibility.
Bob Corker voted YES. 

Bail out wall street?
Corker: Yes
Poskevich: No

Bailout Bill.
The Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008 (H.R. 1424) passed 74-25 (Roll Call 213) on October 1, 2008. (This bill authorizes the Treasury Department to use $700 billion of taxpayer money to purchase troubled mortgage-related securities from banks and other financial-related institutions, on terms set by the Treasury Secretary, who now has authority to manage and sell those assets. The bailout plan also expands FDIC protection from $100,000 to $250,000 per bank account, extends dozens of expiring tax provisions, expands incentives for renewable energy, provides a one-year adjustment to exempt millions of Americans from the alternative minimum tax, and requires health insurers who provide mental-health coverage to put mental-health benefits on par with other medical benefits.) The bill establishes an unconstitutional merger of government with big business — in other words, fascism — and greatly increases the national debt and monetary inflation by forcing taxpayers to pay the price for the failures of private financial institutions.
Bob Corker voted YES.

Farm Bill?
Corker: Yes
Poskevich: No

Farm Bill.
The version of the five year, $289 billion farm bill is considered here. (H.R. 2419 would authorize the nation’s farm programs for the next five years, including crop subsidies and nutrition programs. The final version of this legislation worked out by House and Senate conferees (known as a conference report) provides $289 billion for these programs, including a $10.4 billion boost in spending for nutrition programs such as food stamps.) The Senate passed the final version of H.R. 2419 by a vote of 81-15 (Roll Call 130) on May 15, 2008. Federal aid to farmers and federal food aid to individuals are not authorized by the Constitution.
Bob Corker voted YES.

Farm bill override?
Corker: Yes
Poskevich: No

Farm Bill (Veto Override).Flip Flop Bob?
H.R. 6124 would authorize the nation’s farm programs for the next five years, including crop subsidies and nutrition programs. The final version of the legislation provides $289 billion for these programs, including a $10.4 billion boost in spending for nutrition programs such as food stamps.  After this five-year, $289 billion farm bill was vetoed by President Bush, the Senate passed the bill over the president’s veto on June 18, 2008 by a vote of 80-14 (Roll Call 151). A two thirds majority vote is required to override a presidential veto. Federal aid to farmers and federal food aid to individuals are not authorized by the Constitution.
Bob Corker voted YES.
 
IMF funding?
Corker: Yes
Poskevich: No

IMF Funding.
During consideration of the Fiscal 2009 Supplemental bill (H.R. 2346), Senator Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) offered an amendment to delete $5 billion provided by the bill for the International Monetary Fund (IMF). The IMF is an adjunct of the United Nations and grants foreign aid to qualifying countries. The Senate rejected the DeMint amendment on May 21, 2009, by a vote of 30-64 (Roll Call 201). Foreign aid is unconstitutional, and this is deficit spending.
Bob Corker voted NO against the amendment to delete funding.

Bernanke confirmation?
Corker: Yes
Poskevich: No

Bernanke? Really? Bernanke Confirmation.
On January 28, 2010, the Senate voted 70 to 30 to confirm Ben Bernanke to a second four-year term as Federal Reserve Chairman (Roll Call 16). With Bernanke at the helm, the Fed, which can create money out of thin air, has pumped trillions of newly created fiat (unbacked) dollars into the economy, even though this reckless expansion of the money supply (inflation) will diminish the value of the dollar and further hurt the economy in the long run. Bernanke’s Fed has also kept interest rates artificially low, encouraging excessive borrowing and malinvestments. And Bernanke has called for the Fed — which already possesses the power to create booms and busts through its control of the money supply and interest rates — to be given new powers to manage the financial sector. Bernanke is accountable for the economic havoc at the Fed; which is a central bank that should not even exist.
Bob Corker voted yes!

Audit the fed?
Corker: No
Poskevich: Yes

Audit the Fed.
During consideration of the financial regulatory reform bill (S. 3217), Sen. David Vitter (R-La.) offered an amendment to audit the Federal Reserve. The Senate rejected the Vitter amendment on May 11, 2010 by a vote of 37-62 (Roll Call 138), after unanimously adopting a watered-down audit-the-Fed amendment offered by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) Sanders had much earlier introduced legislation in the Senate that mirrored the audit-the-Fed legislation in the House championed by Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas). When Sanders caved and offered his watered-down amendment, Vitter stepped in and offered an amendment for a full Fed audit along the lines of Paul’s (and Sanders’ earlier) proposal. The Sanders amendment allows for a onetime audit of the Fed’s emergency actions taken in response to the 2008 financial crisis. However, unlike the Vitter amendment, the Sanders amendment (in Paul’s words) “exempts monetary policy decisions, discount window operations, and agreements with foreign central banks from [GAO] audit.” The vote on the Vitter amendment is used here to rate Senators on their position on auditing the Fed.
The American people need to know what the Fed is doing and because this may represent a first step in eliminating the unconstitutional Federal Reserve.
Bob Corker voted NO.

SOPA?
Corker: Yes
Poskevich: No

Patriot Act?
Corker: Yes
Poskevich: No

Patriot Act (Firearms Purchase Records).
During consideration of the Patriot Act extension bill (S. 990), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), who opposes the Patriot Act on constitutional grounds, offered an amendment that would have banned the use of Patriot Act searches for American citizens’ firearms records without the Fourth Amendment’s protections of probable cause, warrants, and particularity. Gun Owners of America, which supported this amendment, warned: “Without Paul’s exemption, it is possible that the BATFE could go to a secret (FISA) court, and, in a one-party (ex parte) proceeding, obtain an order to produce every 4473 [firearms transaction record] in the country, ostensibly because a ‘terrorism investigation’ requires it. If such an action were taken, the government would have a list of every gun buyer in the country going back decades.” The Senate tabled (killed) Rand Paul’s amendment on May 26, 2011 by a vote of 85 to 10 (Roll Call 82). Paul’s amendment would have prevented the Patriot Act from being used to violate the rights of gun owners.
Bob Corker voted YES  ( To Table or Kill the bill)

Patriot Act Extension.
This legislation (S. 990) extended for four years three provisions of the Patriot Act that were set to expire: the “roving wiretap” provision that allows the federal government to wiretap any number of a suspect’s telephone/Internet connections without specifying what they will find or how many connections will be tapped; the “financial records” provision that allows the feds to seize “any tangible thing” that has “relevance” to an investigation; and the “lone wolf” provision that allows spying on non-U.S. citizens without a warrant. These provisions violate the Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which requires that no warrants be issued “but upon probable cause” (a much higher standard than “relevance”), and that warrants must contain language “particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.” The Patriot Act even allows the FBI to issue warrants called “National Security Letters” without going to a judge, though this provision was not set to expire and therefore was not part of this legislation.  The Senate passed S. 990 on May 26, 2011 by a vote of 72 to 23 (Roll Call 84). The extended provisions, and the Patriot Act as a whole, violate the Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution

Other non conservative votes by Bob Corker!

Guest-worker Program.
Senator Byron L. Dorgan (D-N.D.) introduced an amendment to strike the guest-worker provision of Ted Kennedy’s substitute amendment (S. Amdt. #1150) for the immigration reform bill of 2007 (S. 1348). Kennedy’s so-called guest-worker provision would create a renewable two-year guest-worker program, issue a guest-worker visa, and set an adjustable annual cap on the number of guest workers permitted in this country. The Dorgan amendment was rejected by a vote of 31-64 (Roll Call 174) on May 22, 2007. The guest-worker program would constitute a large increase in legal immigration for our country, which would ultimately displace more American workers from their jobs and depress wages.
Bob Corker voted NO.

Mukasey Confirmation.
When Michael Mukasey testified at his confirmation hearings for attorney general, he repeatedly refused to say that waterboarding and other harsh interrogation techniques reportedly practiced by the CIA constituted torture and were therefore illegal. (Waterboarding is a form of controlled drowning.) He also stated, incredibly, that the president could operate outside laws passed by Congress if “what goes outside the statute lies within the authority of the president to defend the country.” The Senate confirmed Michael Mukasey as U.S. attorney general on November 8, 2007, by a vote of 53-40 (Roll Call 407). In so doing, the U.S. Senate demonstrated its willingness to tolerate torture — which is anathema to American values — and its willingness to allow the president to trump laws passed by Congress in the name of national security.
Bob Corker voted YES. 

SCHIP.
H.R. 976 would reauthorize the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) to the amount of $60.2 billion for five years. The proposed amount would expand the program by $35.2 billion and cover an addition 6.1 million children. The Senate passed H.R. 976 on August 2, 2007, by a vote of 68-31 (Roll Call 307). Taxpayer-financed federal health insurance is unconstitutional. After successful passage of H.R. 976 in both the House and Senate, President Bush vetoed the measure on October 3, 2007.
Bob Corker voted YES. 

Amtrak Reauthorization.
This bill (S. 294) would authorize $11.4 billion for Amtrak funding over the next six years. That amount would include monies for operating subsidies ($3.3 billion) and capital grants ($4.9 billion). If passed, states would be required to provide a 20 percent match of funds. Senator Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) opposed the reauthorization of federal funds to Amtrak. According to DeMint, Amtrak routes are so unprofitable that each ticket is federally subsidized by hundreds of dollars. Amtrak was created in 1970 and has been operating under annual federal appropriation funds since 2002. The Senate passed S. 294 on October 30, 2007, by a vote of 70-22 (Roll Call 400). Spending billions of tax dollars for federal grants and subsidies for Amtrak transportation is unconstitutional.
Bob Corker voted YES. 

Fiscal 2009 Supplemental Appropriations.
The Senate version of the Fiscal 2009 Supplemental Appropriations bill (H.R. 2346) would provide an additional $91.3 billion in “emergency” funding for the current fiscal year over and above the regular appropriations. The spending would include $73 billion for the Defense Department (including the ongoing operations in Iraq and Afghanistan), $1.5 billion to address potential pandemic flu, and $5 billion for the International Monetary Fund, a UN agency that lends to qualifying countries. The Senate passed H.R. 2346 on May 21, 2009, by a vote of 86-3 (Roll Call 202). The spending is over and above what the federal government had already budgeted, Congress never declared war against Iraq and Afghanistan, and some of the spending (e.g., foreign aid) is unconstitutional.
Bob Corker voted YES.

Children’s Health Insurance.
H.R. 3963, the five-year, $60 billion SCHIP Extension bill, passed 64-30 on November 1, 2007 (Roll Call 403) and then went to the president, who vetoed it. (H.R. 3963, a bill to reauthorize the Children’s Health Insurance Program, was rejected in the House, 260-152 on January 23, 2008 (Roll Call 22) when the House failed to get the necessary two-thirds majority of those present to override President Bush’s veto. The bill would have authorized the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) at nearly $60 billion over five years, expanding the program by $35 billion. It also would have put an additional tax on cigarette manufacturers, would have undermined private insurance plans, and would have pushed us further down the slippery slope to socialized medicine. ) The Constitution does not authorize federal involvement in healthcare, even for children.
Bob Corker voted YES. 

Head Start.
H.R. 1429, a bill to reauthorize the Head Start program through 2012, was adopted 95-0 on November 14, 2007 (Roll Call 409). (Head Start provides educational activities and social services for children up to age five from low-income families. The program received $6.9 billion in fiscal year 2007. $7 billion was authorized in the fiscal 2008 omnibus bill, but H.R. 1429 increased funding to $7.4 billion for fiscal 2008, $7.7 billion for 2009, and $8 billion for 2010. The income level at which families are eligible to participate was raised from 100 percent of the poverty level to 130 percent ($26,728 for a family of four). Some members opposed the bill because Head Start grants will not be allowed to faith-based organizations that hire employees on the basis of religious preference.) Having been adopted in both the House and the Senate, this legislation was cleared for President Bush, who signed it into law. Federalized educational system is an unconstitutional and wasteful bureaucracy. (there were no “nays”)
Bob Corker voted YES.  

Global HIV/AIDS Program.
This legislation (H.R. 5501) to authorize $48 billion to fight AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria overseas.  (The bill would authorize $48 billion for fiscal 2009 through 2013 to combat AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis overseas. Currently one third of the funding for HIV prevention is required to go to abstinence education. The bill would change that allocation to balance funding between condom, fidelity, and abstinence programs. It would also authorize $2 billion to fund programs for American Indian health, clean water, and law enforcement.) The Senate passed H.R. 5501 on July 16, 2008 by a vote of 80-16 (Roll Call 182). We have assigned pluses to the “nays” because foreign aid is unconstitutional.
Bob Corker voted YES.

SCHIP.
H.R. 2 would reauthorize the “State Children’s Health Insurance Program,” commonly referred to as SCHIP, for over four and a half years and increase the funding for the program by $32.8 billion. (H.R. 2 would reauthorize the State Children’s Health Insurance Program, commonly referred to as SCHIP, for over four and a half years and increase the funding for the program by $32.8 billion. SCHIP is designed to provide health insurance to children of families whose incomes are up to four times above the poverty level (and therefore would have too much income to qualify for Medicaid), yet would have little income to buy private insurance. Often SCHIP crowds out private insurance: the Congressional Budget Office found that between 25 and 50 percent of children who enroll in SCHIP dropped their private insurance to get “free care.” Because SCHIP, like Medicaid and Medicare, pays doctors and hospitals only a fraction of the actual cost of care, the unfunded costs get passed to holders of private insurance. Additionally, SCHIP would apply to 400,000 to 600,000 children of legal immigrants whose sponsors had agreed to cover the children’s healthcare needs for at least five years after arriving to the United States. ) The Senate passed H.R. 2 on January 29, 2009, by a vote of 66-32 (Roll Call 31). Federal healthcare programs are unconstitutional and would likely lower the quality of healthcare.
Bob Corker voted YES.

Supplemental Appropriations.
The final version (conference report) of the fiscal 2009 supplemental appropriations bill (H.R. 2346), would provide $105.9 in “emergency” funding. (This final version (conference report) of the fiscal 2009 supplemental appropriations bill (H.R. 2346) would provide an additional $105.9 billion in so-called emergency funds over and above the regular appropriations for 2009. This outrageous supplemental package would include $79.9 billion for defense funding (including for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan), $10.4 billion for foreign aid programs, $7.7 billion to address the national flu scare, and $5 billion for International Monetary Fund activities. This supplemental bill would also include $1 billion for the Cash for Clunkers program. A day prior to the House vote, Representative Ron Paul (R-Texas) urged his fellow lawmakers to reject the bill, stating, “I continue to believe that the best way to for discretionary spending for the two departments and their related agencies, a 25-percent increase from fiscal 2009 levels. The bill would provide $1.5 billion in federal grants for Amtrak and $18.2 billion for the Section 8 Tenant-based Rental Assistance program.) The Senate adopted the conference report (thus sending it to the President) on June 18, 2009 by a vote of 91-5 (Roll Call 210). The spending is over and above what the federal government had already budgeted, the United States never declared war against Iraq and Afghanistan, and some of the spending (e.g., Cash for Clunkers and foreign aid) is unconstitutional.
Bob Corker voted YES.

Energy-Water Appropriations.
The final version (conference report) of this 2010 spending bill (H.R. 3183) to appropriate $34 billion for energy and water projects ( The final version (conference report) of H.R. 3183 would appropriate $34 billion in fiscal 2010 for energy and water projects. The funds would provide $27.1 billion for the Energy Department, $5.4 billion for the Army Corps of Engineers, and $1.1 billion for the Interior Department’s Bureau of Reclamation.). The Senate adopted the conference report (thus sending it to the President) on October 15, 2009 by a vote of 80-17 (Roll Call 322). The Department of Energy is not authorized by the Constitution.
Bob Corker voted YES.

Do you really even need to read further? The RINO and the NON Conservative is very evident. I don’t need to research this any further! My vote is clear, we need change to protect our constitution and to clearly send someone to Washington that represents the people and will secure their rights!

Sorry Bob Corker but you gotta go. The above results are making me feel like our state and country has suffered because you are in office!

Get out there and vote starting today Tennessee!

The true Conservative in this debate is Zack Poskevich!
 
5 reasons we should vote for Zach Poskevich

1) Zach Poskevich is a man of principle, integrity and conviction.

2) Zach Poskevich has already put his life on the line to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States when he joined the Army at age 17; he will continue to do so while serving as our US Senator.

3) Zach Poskevich is a highly intelligent individual who understands our history, how we got to the place we are in as a nation, and how to get back on the right path.

4) Zach Poskevich has no desire to be a career politician and will return home after fulfilling his service to our country as a US Senator.

5) Zach Poskevich is one of ‘We the People,’ not a political player who is beholden to lobbyists or donors; he will take our fight to Washington.

Zack Poskevich is the easy choice in this debate! Didn’t you feel dirty witnessing the votes by Bob Corker…….yeah made me feel dirty too and much less of an American.

No more comparison needed! There is only one true conservative/Non RINO in this race and he ain’t the one that currently holds the office! Look at the votes by both and you can clearly see that our state could be going in another direction.

Thanks to these sources who made this analysis more thorough! These sites are chocked full of great information and I would suggest you visit them frequently!

US Arms Trade Treaty: UN appoints Iran to key role in negotiating away your 2nd Amendment rights

In Uncategorized on July 11, 2012 at 11:38 PM

BCNews note: Iran? Are you for real? Iran, with their lifelong stellar record on human rights has been put in charge of treaty enforcement that could eventually lead to us losing our guns and right to own them? Really? Is this the same UN that the Chamber of Commerce created several years ago? I’m sitting here with my tounge hanging out wandering what in the heck is going on? Why is the UN anywhere near our border with this bull?

Then I think again and it astounds me that we still give the Chamber of Commerce so much credibility in light of their Frankenstein type creation! Did anyone, even the Chamber think that they could create such an animal with such fangs. Then I think well everything the Chamber of Commerce does somehow points right back to the United Nations as if by design, as if they were trying to take over the world and replace her with some type of alternative plan. A plan so deviant even our neighbors couldn’t blame on the Chamber!

Where does it stop? When does someone say enough is enough? When does some brave soul say the UN has no right in our country so get the hades out!

Do we hand our guns over to a foreign entity at the behest of the Chamber that is in every community in the US and seemingly and well disguised as red white and blue as apple pie? Some are saying even if our senate repels this treaty our “gun info” will still be in the hands of the UN for global monitoring! Folks, better wake up! I have been told many times by many people “by golly if they come after my guns, then I’m gonna get mad” well, they are after your guns and will be real close to getting them as soon a July 27th, 2012.

Our two Senators in Tennessee Alexander and Corker cant seem to give anyone a straight answer when asked if they are going to vote on it or not! Senators this is a no brainer! This is the gem in the crown that keeps our nation and it’s people free! This is our second amendment rights! Please! What is so difficult about this.

A United Nations treaty on the trade of conventional arms could give enemies of the U.S. access to the records of American gun owners, say critics. (AP)
UNITED NATIONS –  A treaty being hammered out this month at the United Nations — with Iran playing a key role — could expose the records of America’s gun owners to foreign governments — and, critics warn, eventually put the Second Amendment on global trial.

International talks in New York are going on throughout July on the final wording of the so-called Arms Trade Treaty, which supporters such as Amnesty International USA say would rein in unregulated weapons that kill an estimated 1,500 people daily around the world. But critics, including the National Rifle Association’s Wayne LaPierre, warn the treaty would mark a major step toward the eventual erosion of the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment gun-ownership rights.

Americans “just don’t want the UN to be acting as a global nanny with a global permission slip stating whether they can own a gun or not,” LaPierre said. “It cheapens our rights as American citizens, and weakens our sovereignty,” he warned in an exclusive interview with FoxNews.com from the halls of the UN negotiating chambers.

“It cheapens our rights as American citizens, and weakens our sovereignty.”
– Wayne LaPierre, National Rifle Association

The world body has already been criticized for appointing Iran to a key role in the talks, even as Tehran stands accused by the UN of arming Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s bloody crackdown on rebels. The Obama administration in 2009 reversed Bush administration policy by agreeing to take part in the talks. But in another exclusive interview with FoxNews.com, the top government official on the issue under President Bush says he’s seen nothing new to convince him the U.S. should be at the table today.

While the treaty’s details are still under discussion, the document could straitjacket U.S. foreign policy to the point where Washington could be restricted from helping arm friends such as Taiwan and Israel, said Greg Suchan, Deputy Assistant Secretary in the State Department’s Bureau of Political-Military Affairs from 2000 to 2007.

Suchan also highlighted ongoing concern that the treaty may end up giving foreigners access to U.S. gun-ownership records.

On that score, LaPierre, who serves as NRA executive vice president, warns that the “UN’s refusal” to remove civilian firearms and ammunition from the scope of the treaty amounts to a declaration that only governments should be gun owners.

But he revealed he was set Wednesday to tell the UN gathering that 58 U.S. senators had signed a letter saying that they would refuse to ratify any treaty that includes controls over civilian guns or ammunition.

Ratification by two-thirds of the Senate is necessary before an international treaty negotiated by the executive branch can become U.S. law. But the treaty could still go into effect elsewhere once 65 countries ratify it. Such a development could change the pattern of world arms transfers and reduce the U.S. share, which stands at about 40 percent of up to $60 billion in global deals.

The Bush administration opposed a 2006 UN General Assembly resolution launching the treaty process, but President Obama decided the U.S. would take part on condition the final agreement be reached by consensus — thereby giving any of the 193 participating states an effective veto.

The safeguard is insufficient for opponents of the U.S. participation, not least because UN talks invariably involve compromise.

“The administration swears they have a whole bunch of red lines, and they will block consensus if anyone crosses them,” said Suchan, now a government relations consultant as senior associate with the Commonwealth Consulting Corporation in Arlington, Va.

“But the dynamics of international negotiations are that once you get 90 percent of what you seek, you say, ‘Maybe there is a way we can finesse the final 10 percent.’”

A clause permitting arms transfers solely between UN member states would allow UN member China to object to U.S. arms sales to Taiwan, a non-UN member that China considers to be a renegade province.

This would be highly problematic for the U.S. at a time when Beijing is engaged in an unprecedented arms buildup.

Another fear is that Arab or other states critical of Israel may use any treaty language on human rights standards to argue against U.S. arms transfers to the Israeli government – much in the same way they currently use the UN Human Rights Council to repeatedly condemn Israel.

Suchan said U.S. arms trade law is seen as the global “gold standard” for regulating arms transfers, but doubted many countries would be willing to raise the bar that high. Instead, the treaty that emerges is expected to set a lower global standard – which Suchan said would have the effect of reducing Washington’s ability to press for voluntary arms embargoes against rogue states.

“We might want to urge a country to not sell arms to a state whose government is particularly odious,” Suchan explained.

“But that government could then ask whether the sale is prohibited under the Arms Trade Treaty – and if it is not, they would argue they are meeting the international standard.”

U.S. gun lobby concern focuses on the emphasis the treaty places on governmental – as opposed to individual – rights to guns, LaPierre explained.

“They’re trying to impose a UN policy that gives guns to the governments – but the UN doesn’t in turn make moral judgments as to whether these governments are good or bad,” he said.

“If you’re the government, you get the guns, if you’re a civilian, you don’t. But this will just end up helping evil governments and tyrants.”

For LaPierre, the emphasis he sees at the UN on governmental rights reflects what he believes is a wider international tradition that contrasts with the historical American emphasis on individual rights.

“The UN view is that governments – not individual citizens – ought to protect people,” he said, signaling that this principle permeates the draft that negotiators are currently working with.

LaPierre says the treaty that is likely to emerge will have the effect of squeezing individual gun owners in the United States and elsewhere by imposing on them an onerous collection of regulations.

“If they get this through, then what comes along is the institutionalizing of the whole gun control-ban movement within the bureaucracy of UN – with a permanent funding mechanism that we [in America] will be mainly paying for,” he said.

“The world’s worst human rights abusers will end up voting for this, while the Obama administration has not drawn a line in the sand like the previous administration did. Instead, it is trying to be a part of this train wreck because they think they can somehow finesse it. But, to me, there is no finessing the individual freedoms of American citizens.”
