The Gospel Truth

Lip Reading 101 | July 5, 2012

Harry Hopkins was probably Franklin Roosevelt’s closest advisor.

Some historians have even called him FDR’s Deputy President.

Hopkins had a great love affair with the Soviet Union.

He was largely responsibly for the president’s deep affection for their way of government and political control.

The Venona Dispatches, which exposed the secret dealings of the collapsed Soviet Union after 1991, revealed that Hopkins, while not a full-fledged spy was much closer to the Soviet Union than a mere fellow traveler.

My father used to quote him at length.

He advised all Democrats to tax and tax, spend and spend and elect and elect.

Has worked for 70 years

This formula has been the hidden mantra of the Democratic Party ever since.

And it has worked…unlike most of their wasteful policies for over 70 years.

As Ronald Reagan said to Jimmy Carter, there you go again.

President Obama, in the true discipleship of his legendary mentor, has done it again and plans to do it again and again and again.

When will the American people finally tire of this political deception that has for the first time written our national demise and economic collapse on the walls for everyone to see?

But do we have the eyes to see?

While Justice John Roberts nuanced decision has not set well with many conservatives, I think it might eventually work out to be very beneficial, not only for Republicans across the board, but more importantly for the nation’s future.

In his own cautious and perhaps self-contradictory way, the Chief Justice may have opened the door for a Republican victory in November.

Former Clinton advisor, Dick Morris said on Fox News the other night that Obama won the battle but will lose the war thanks to the National Federation of Independent Business vs. Sebelius.

Kathleen Sebelius - Sebelius Testifies Before Senate Appropriations Committee On FY2013 Budget

Will oversee largest tax increase

I think and hope he is right.

Now Obama has to defend his odious, unpopular, forced and bribed legislation before the electorate this coming summer and fall.

Right now he doesn’t even mention it…supposedly his biggest political accomplishment, next to fooling the American voters.

His scripted factota dance around the subject of new taxes, like Baryshnikov and Nureyev on speed.

Dances with Democrats

Now that ObmaCare is the sanctioned law of the land, not under the expansive Commerce Clause but under its power to tax and tax…spend and spend…Obama has effectively raised the taxes on millions of middle class Americans.

But this tax increase will not be felt by the top 1% of Americans but by the young, the middle class, the poor because those are the people who can’t afford insurance or don’t think they need it.

And they will be joined by millions more when businesses realize–many already have–that it will be cheaper to pay the tax than pay for employee health care.

Then these employees will have to buy their own insurance.

Of course Obama can still give his notorious exemptions–over a 1000 to everyone but the Catholic Church.

He can also subsidize them as he is wont to do with billions from the empty treasury.

His legacy for future generations will be his big fat I.O.U. for several trillions more in government debt.

Like most of our lives, this president continues to make a mess of things.

And by the way, I took a leaf from the pages of George Stephanopoulos and looked up the basic definition of a tax, which reads—a compulsory levy on a person, business or property.

Armed with his Webster’s

Under that definition the ObamaCare’s fines can easily be construed as new taxes.  

Why wise has Obama already hired 18,000 new IRS agents to implement this huge tax?

And why will all taxpayers have to submit detailed information about how much each member of a household earns, how much insurance the household has?

Why does the government want to know what the premiums are, the availability of employer health plans and several more items that will create a new nightmare for the ordinary taxpayer?

However this levy on people for not buying insurance is admittedly strange and unique.

Admittedly, the Chief Justice had to nearly fold, staple, and mutilate the Constitution’s language and procedure to call it a tax.

Maybe one could call it a negative excise tax.

But nonetheless it walks like a tax…quacks like a tax…so it must be a…tax!

In fact ObamaCare can now be called the ObamaCare Tax Bill since it includes 21 addition hidden taxes that include visits to tanning spas, over-the-counter medications, a new withholding tax from paychecks, and a surtax on investment income that when coupled with the virtual repeal of the Busch tax cuts will raise investment income to 43% from its current 15%.

We read them loud and clear

Just think what all these new taxes will do to our already weakened economy, job creation and not to mention thousands of pension funds that are already underfunded.

Taxes have been inimical to the American people since the days of Benjamin Franklin and James Madison.

Didn’t Obama say that he would not raise taxes one dime on anyone, making less than $200,000?

Is that not the Democratic equivalent to George H. W.’s Read my lips, no more new taxes, a pledge he broke?

Didn’t that violation of the public trust hand the election to Bill Clinton in 1992?

It was another more famous Supreme Court Justice who wrote in McCulloch v. Maryland in 1819, the power to tax involves the power to destroy.

Knew the consequences of taxation

Failure to believe this is an invitation for destitution and maybe even prison.

Franklin said in 1789 after the ratification of the U. S. Constitution that Yes we have a Republic.

Let’s see if we can keep it!

The most prophetic words from Justice Roberts’ majority opinion was that in effect it was not within the Court’s pay scale to protect the people from the consequences of their political choices.

So the ball is in the electorate’s court and it is our job to eliminate one of the most atrocious bills ever forced on the American people…one marred by legislative bribery and presidential deception.

This election, the most important in American history since 1860 is our chance to throw the rascals out and restore a semblance of good, fair and decent government.

The choice is our–taxes or prosperity–tyranny or freedom!

Was he influenced by bad press?

And when the people finally speak loudly and clearly…hopefully they will repeal 70 years of New Deal falsehood, along with ObamaCare and with it the Nanny State that has gradually cooked the American frog.



  1. Bill, one of your finest.

  2. Bill, this is superb!!!

    Let’s hope and pray that the American people have
    been awakened in spite of the rhetoric of the misleading deceptive media.

    Yesterday was not the cheery 4th of July as usual for
    many of us. However, attending Mass to pray for
    our country lifted our spirits.

    Today, we were at Hobby Lobby looking for glue which
    my husband needs for a small 10 ft. sailboat he is
    building. Found no glue BUT did decide to look at
    50% off July 4th decorations. Bought two of them:

    1. A cross that reads: “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and
    seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then
    will I hear from Heaven. And will forgive their sin, and will heal their Land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14

    2. A wall placque that reads: Blessed is the Nation
    whoose God is the Lord.

    Let’s pray as though all depends upon us and work
    as though all depends upon us to rescue our country
    from tyranny.

    Google: The Patriotic Rosary and promote it!!!

    2012 Wicked Ways = Abortion, Fornication, Homosexuality, Lies, Greed, etc.

  3. OK OK this is all true and we are all preahers to the choir. What we’ll we do.
    The Left has been playing dirty pool for decades, and the right still sees them selves so above it all, then turns and crys about it, as if they had nothing they could do..
    It is distressing to me to see our nominee, afraid to say anything negative about Obama, because it is below his standard. He has been so shamed, that he if afraid to be proud of his own success. I say, then,you don’t want to be our leader.
    i want someone who is willing to FIGHT, and if it requires physical action , then by G., do it.
    i have written to congress numerous times about being gutless. If you are a leader and you show you will lead, then people will follow.
    John McCain was a coward, we don’t need another John McCain, we need a real, JOHN WAYNE.
    I have been putting together small groups for discussion, trying to open peoples eyes, and it amazes me, how unwilling people are to realize the truth. Sometimes the facts are hard to believe, but if we keep finding it all hard to believe and look away, there will be nothing left to fight for and noone else to blame.

  4. I have a strong feeling that Roberts was threatened. Hear that happens in the political world when “they” want to get their stuff made into law.
