Mr. President: I told you so

I have been reading about Mr. Sean Treglia who used to work at Pew Charitable Trusts. You would think the press would be all over this. They are not. You would think the bloggers would be all over this. They are not. Oh, some have written a few sentences here and there, but nothing like Rathergate. Why or why not?

This is the feedback I wrote to them:
"Good afternoon. I have been reading articles that are stating that Mr. Sean Treglia "broke the spirit of the law" (his words) while giving a speech at USC. Is this true?

This has to do with the Philadelphia-based branch and campaign finance reform. I would like to have your side of the issue before I go to print. If I do not hear from you, I will assume the NY Post and the Opinion Journal are correct in their statements. I would be very disappointed if this is the case.

Do you understand how much damage you have done? (If this is true.)

I understand he no longer works there. Was he fired because of this? I look forward to hearing from you as soon as possible. It goes to print Tuesday evening.

Thank you for your time.
I told them I am from the Americans for Truth and Justice, which is true. I am for truth, and I am for justice. I am also very American! So what is the big deal I am talking about?

Mr. Sean Treglia gave a speech at USC, and he virtually confessed to fruad. It was all intended for the 535 people in power in Washington, DC. He also did much damage to you and me.

How did he do that? Ryan Sager of the New York Post online has obtained a video tape of a conference held at USC's Annenberg School for Communication in March of 2004 about how he got away with scamming the Congress and Senate into voting for Campaign Finance Reform, otherwise known as Incumbent Security Reform. See for yourself:
Charged with promoting campaign-finance reform when he joined Pew in the mid-1990s, Treglia came up with a three-pronged strategy: 1) pursue an expansive agenda through incremental reforms, 2) pay for a handful of "experts" all over the country with foundation money and 3) create fake business, minority and religious groups to pound the table for reform.

"The target audience for all this activity was 535 people in Washington," Treglia says — 100 in the Senate, 435 in the House. "The idea was to create an impression that a mass movement was afoot — that everywhere they looked, in academic institutions, in the business community, in religious groups, in ethnic groups, everywhere, people were talking about reform."
Well, well. How about that? Do you realize the FEC is going after bloggers' free speech? Go ahead and sit pretty in your cubicles, but when that day comes and you've said and did nothing, I don't want to hear it.

So what can we do? We can have Congress investigate this? Yeah right. They already look like fools to me. How about having the President tell the Justice Department to look at it? Yeah right. He's the one who signed it into law in the first place. I called so many times trying to reason with him, and he signed it anyway. No. We can't even go to the IRS, because Treglia was careful enough to disclose to them what he was doing.

So what now? We go to the Federal Elections Board? They are the ones trying to shut you and me down. I'm thinking, alright?! The next election is coming. We can make this a big issue. A law has been given, and a law can been taken away!

Campaign only for people who promise to fight illegal aliens and to repeal the campaign finance reform law. We have to come together. I don't believe Republicans or Democrats like being duped. Let us show the press that if they do not do their jobs, we will.

If the press had investigated this, PEW would have been laughed out of DC. The PEW has/had no credibility in Washington, according to Mr. Treglia. That is why the people who ran the ads did not include the fact that the PEW Trust fund had financed them.

This is illegal. This violates the transparency issues. Of $140 million dollars, $123 million was received from only 8 fundraising organizations. Yes, Soros was one of them. They want to silence us, so we must not let that happen. Keep this story alive. I want him behind bars. I'm pretty sure there will be updates to this.

My friend Jack of Clubs has been doing a very good job on keeping everyone informed about this. He has a list of everyone he knows who has written an article about this. Please visit his site to get more ideas. Thank you, and keep on blogging!

Some News I wrote and should have written

I wrote a about the Military Families Relief Bill on the 14 of March. I have linked it for you again, so you don't even have to go looking for it. Please find your state to see if you can participate in the program for our troops with your tax refund or return.

I know a great blogger by the name of Jack of Clubs who has provided many blogs who have written articles on this topic. This topic is about the scam that many and I have been screaming about: Incumbent Protection Reform, otherwise know as Campaign Finance Reform.

It is a scam, and it finally hit the New York Post, of all places. As I promised him, I will be writing my own article on this issue. I just had to put in down for a while due to high blood pressure, which I never had before! I don't have it now, I was just exaggerating.

Look forward to my taking this article to heart, and taking these people whom I will name to task. I will also give us a channel to place our rage. You will have some, if you care about reading any blogs. You will have some, if you care about your free speech.

The Federalist: Founders' Daily Quote(s)

Monday, February 28, 2005
"Public opinion sets bounds to every government, and is the real sovereign in every free one." --James Madison

Oh really? Would you please tell that to the Supremes...!

Tuesday, March 1, 2005
"The regular distribution of power into distinct departments; the introduction of legislative balances and checks; the institution of courts composed of judges holding their offices during good behavior; the representation of the people in the legislature by deputies of their own election.... They are means, and powerful means, by which the excellences of republican government may be retained and its imperfections lessened or avoided." --Alexander Hamilton, Federalist No. 9

Is it good behavior to look at another country's laws to make your case for your decision? Hmm? What is our recourse when we have an inept legistature? How did we become a "safe" district for so many losers of both parties? Is party affiliation really all it's cracked up to be? Just a few thoughts. I'm tired of every year voting, and I know that no matter what-the majority of the same people will be returning. So why, do tell, do they spend their career raising money if they know they won't be defeated? Hmm. Disgusting.

"Against the insidious wiles of foreign influence, (I conjure you to believe me fellow citizens) the jealousy of a free people ought to be constantly awake; since history and experience prove that foreign influence is one of the most baneful foes of Republican Government." --George Washington

Wake up, Supremes! Beware!

Thursday, March 3, 2005
"But as the plan of the convention aims only at a partial union or consolidation, the State governments would clearly retain all the rights of sovereignty which they before had, and which were not, by that act, EXCLUSIVELY delegated to the United States." --Alexander Hamilton, Federalist No. 32

Try telling that to the Supremes. I guess I'm rather upset with the decisions, or lack thereof, this morning in particular. I have been holding off on writing this, because I have been upset. They can take Lawrence v. Texas, Supremes v. God, but they won't take business owners v. employees?

The 9th Circus said that employers cannot ask employees any discovery questions as to where a person was born, legality in this country, etc., because it would be discriminatory? Huh?

"They accomplished a revolution which has no parallel in the annals of human society. They reared the fabrics of governments which have no model on the face of the globe. They formed the design of a great Confederacy, which it is incumbent on their successors to improve and perpetuate." --James Madison, Federalist No. 14

Yes. Yes they did. I thank God for them not as often as I should, but I do. Thank you for bestowing upon us this great nation, even with the flakes that come with it. Hehehe. Have a great day everyone.

In Court Again for Terri Schiavo

Originally posted at Causes of Interest.

(This post was originally written yesterday, March 7, 2005.)

Today the judge is hearing the claims by the Department of Social Services who want to delay the murder of Terri so they can have time to investigate the claims of abuse that have been raised. Pray as hard as you can for this judge to soften his heart-dare I say...if he has one-to allow Terri to live. Tell your friends, neighbors, and co-workers. This will not be carried by the MSM, because it isn't a crises, yet, and it isn't one that they made up. It is real. She is a real woman with a real life.

Let me explain why I am afraid of this outcome, should we fail. When I was 22, I had 2 strokes. I forgot my name, the alphabet, my address, and everything I had learned 2 days after graduating from college. I was in a coma for 2 1/2 weeks. It took me 1 1/2 years to learn how to walk in a way where you cannot tell I am limping. It took me 8-9 months to speak one syllable words. How much was I worth? I was a burden. They could one day decide that, being all alone in this world, I am worth nothing and my body would be better used for science. Where did we see this before? Germany...1938. Need I say more...?

Update: Dr. Alan Keyes spoke on the radio today with Michael Medved. It was a very passionate and persuasive conversation. He has some petitions you may sign if you would like to try to help. There is also a piece about Terri at World Net Daily.
