What is the difference between the MassGOP Convention election process and the Florida 2000 presidential election chad recount process? The answer is NONE! It appears that the MassGOP is singing the the Florida tune: We don’t like the election results so we will fabricate a means to make the election go “Our Way.”
“There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest.” Elie Wiesel
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Massachusetts Liberty Caucus
17 Liberty Delegates/Alternates have been not certified.
We are disappointed that the Allocation Committee would ignore the Republican
voters of the Massachusetts Congressional Districts by refusing to even
communicate with the delegates after numerous attempts to reach out to the
allocation committee to discuss problems/issues with legality of the affidavit. The
continued arrogant attitudes and clear manipulation of the rules by members of
MassGOP leadership are a perfect example of why almost 90% Massachusetts
residents refuse to be a Registered Republican and active in the Massachusetts
Republican Party. Some elected delegates candidates had less than 40 hours to
review, sign, notarize, and return an unprecedented affidavit with an arbitrary
deadline to MassGOP headquarters. Ultimately, many elected Ronald Reagan
Unity Liberty slate delegate candidates that were just de-certified by the
Allocation Committee had turned in the original, MassGOP affidavit before they
met to make a decisions.
I am more disappointed that still, after last week’s endorsement of Governor Mitt
Romney by Senator Rand Paul, a leader of the Republican Liberty movement,
that the campaign staff of the Romney campaign would take the numerous olive
branches offered by the ‘Ronald Reagan Unity Liberty Slate’, and continue to
snap those olive branches in two, ignoring attempts for outreach and
compromise, and just simply disenfranchising the voters and activists that could
help Mitt Romney win in November’s General Election.
The mishandling of issues regarding the Provisional Ballots, 5th District
Challenge, and Affidavits will only harden the resolve of the Liberty Caucus
supporters, to work with the grassroots activists to re-build the Republican Party
in Massachusetts, and help promote Liberty issues such as Auditing the Federal
Reserve, and requiring Congressional Declaration of War to fund a war. Most
likely, multiple challenges will be filed to the RNC rules committee, as the
MassGOP leadership decides to waste its time and resources fighting with loyal,
hardworking, grassroots activists rather than defeating Democrats.

The Obama Administration will stop deporting and issue work permits to as many as 800,000 young illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children and have never committed a crime, Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano said Friday. �
Napolitano said the change is needed to ensure enforcement resources are not expended on “low-priority cases” and are instead focused on people who “meet enforcement priorities.” But the move angered Republicans, who viewed it as an overreach by the administration on a matter that should be addressed legislatively. “Today, I am announcing that effective immediately, young people brought to U.S. by no fault of their own and meet several criteria no longer are removed from country or entered into removal proceedings,” Napolitano said in a conference call with reporters. The election-year announcement was met with surprise and question by GOP lawmakers, while raised by at least one leading Capitol Hill Democrat. “This is another example of executive overreach,” Florida Rep. Allen West told Fox News. West said he just learned about the policy change and that such a move should have come through legislation on Capitol Hill where it could be debated. “That’s how we do business in the United States,” said West, R-Fla.
““How can the administration justify allowing illegal immigrants to work in the U.S. when millions of Americans are unemployed?” – Texas GOP Rep. Lamar Smith, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee
Democratic Sen. Charles E. Schumer, chairman of the Immigration, Refugees and Border Security Judiciary subcommittee, said the president accomplished “in one fell swoop” what far too few Republicans were brave enough to even discuss. President Obama is scheduled to further discuss the issue this afternoon on national television. The policy change was reported first by The Associated Press. Two senior administration officials told the wire service the policy partially achieves the goals of the so-called DREAM Act, a long-sought but never enacted plan to establish a path toward citizenship for young people who came to the U.S. illegally, but who have attended college or served in the military. Obama plans next week to address the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials’ annual conference in Orlando. Republican presidential challenger Mitt Romney is scheduled to speak to the group on Thursday. Under the administration plan, illegal immigrants will be immune from deportation if they were brought to the U.S. before they turned 16 and are younger than 30, have been in the country for at least five continuous years, have no criminal history, graduated from a U.S. high school or earned a GED, or served in the military. They also can apply for a work permit that will be good for two years with no limits on how many times it can be renewed. The officials who described the plan spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss it in advance of the official announcement. The policy will not lead toward citizenship but will remove the threat of deportation and grant the ability to work legally, leaving eligible immigrants able to remain in the U.S. for extended periods. It tracks closely to a proposal offered by Sen. Marco Rubio, (R-Fla.), as an alternative to the DREAM Act. “Many of these young people have already contributed to our country in significant ways,” Napolitano wrote in a memorandum describing the administration’s action. “Prosecutorial discretion, which is used in so many other areas, is especially justified here.” The extraordinary move comes in an election year in which the Hispanic vote could be critical in swing states like Colorado, Nevada and Florida While Obama enjoys support from a majority of Hispanic voters, Latino enthusiasm for the president has been tempered by the slow economic recovery, his inability to win congressional support for a broad overhaul of immigration laws and by his administration’s aggressive deportation policy. Activists opposing his deportation policies last week mounted a hunger strike at an Obama campaign office in Denver, and other protests were planned for this weekend. The change is likely to cause an outcry from congressional Republicans, who are sure to perceive Obama’s actions as an end run around them. Republicans already have complained that previous administration uses of prosecutorial discretion in deportations amount to back-door amnesty. Romney and many Republican lawmakers want tighter border security measures before considering changes in immigration law. Romney opposes offering legal status to illegal immigrants who attend college but has said he would do so for those who serve in the armed forces. An NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll last month found Obama leading Romney among Hispanic voters 61 percent to 27 percent. But his administration’s deportation policies have come under fire, and Latino leaders have raised the subject in private meetings with the president. In 2011, Immigration and Customs Enforcement deported a record 396,906 people and is expected to deport about 400,000 this year. A December poll by the Pew Hispanic Center showed that 59 percent of Latinos disapproved of the president’s handling of deportations. The changes come a year after the administration announced plans to focus on deporting serious criminals, immigrants who pose threats to public safety and national security, and serious immigration law violators. One of the officials said the latest policy change is just another step in the administration’s evolving approach to immigration. Under the plan, immigrants whose deportation cases are pending in immigration court will have to prove their eligibility for a reprieve to ICE, which will begin dealing with such cases in 60 days. Any immigrant who already has a deportation order and those who never have been encountered by immigration authorities will deal with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. The exact details of how the program will work, including how much immigrants will have to pay to apply and what proof they will need, still are being worked out. In making it harder to deport, the Obama administration is in essence employing the same eligibility requirements spelled out in the proposed DREAM Act. The administration officials stopped short of calling the change an administrative DREAM Act — the name is an acronym for Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors — but the qualifications meet those laid out in a 2010 version that failed in the Senate after passing in the House. They said the DREAM Act, in some form, and comprehensive overhaul of the immigration system remained an administration priority. Illegal immigrant children won’t be eligible to apply for the deportation waiver until they turn 16, but the officials said younger children won’t be deported either. Last year, Napolitano announced plans to review about 300,000 pending deportation cases and indefinitely suspend those that didn’t meet department priorities. So far, Immigration and Customs Enforcement has reviewed more than 232,000 cases and decided to stop working on about 20,000. About 4,000 of those 20,000 have opted to keep fighting in court to stay in the United States legally. For the people who opted to close their cases, work permits are not guaranteed. The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Over the next six months, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton will attempt to develop a consensus in the Senate that would result in five U.N. treaties being ratified by the Senate. Treaties that are guaranteed to severely threaten our National Sovereignty.
As you may know, a treaty is ratified by the Senate by a 2/3 vote and circumvents the House. Once passed, a Treaty can only be reversed by a Constitutional Amendment or agreement by all participants.
In July 2010, the Law of sea treaty (LOST) was ratified by President Obama in Executive Order 13547. A few weeks ago President Obama had Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, make a rare joint appearance before the Senate’s Foreign Relations Committee. They argued for passage of LOST, a treaty that President Regan soundly rejected and killed in 1982. On Tuesday, Leon Panetta had four admirals, including the chief of naval operations and the vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and two generals appear before the same committee to appeal to Conservatives in an attempt to get them to ratify the U.N. Convention on the Law of the Sea.
Our own Sen. John Kerry is chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and a willing accomplice to this treason. His mission is to report out the legislation for LOST and the other administration’s treaties out of his committee to the full Senate with positive recommendations. Kerry is quietly laying the groundwork for passage and will dutifully maneuver the charge in a lame-duck secession after the November elections.
THREATS TO OUR SOVEREIGNTY
International Covenant on Environment and Development – Eco-Logic Jan/Feb 98
The Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST)
International Criminal Court
UN Small Arms Treaty
Rights of the Child
Code of Conduct in Outer Space
Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are in complete support of these treaties
A treaty is ratified by the Senate and does not go to the House. 2/3 vote is required. A Treaty can only be reversed by a Constitutional Amendment or agreement by all participants.
All of these treaties have been around for years and have been kept at bay. Obama wants all of these Treaties ratified and he will find a way to get them enacted whether by Executive Order or Treaty.

Ace financial reporter, Charlie Gasparino of Fox News, broke the story yesterday that:
“Last year, as panic raged through the municipal bond market that cities and possibly even states might default on their debt under the burdens of massive government expenditures, particularly in the form of unfunded liabilities posed by public pension funds, J.P. Morgan (JPM: 34.30, +0.53, +1.57%) went out and studied whether the problem was indeed as acute as some had feared.”
The result wasn’t something J.P. Morgan, the largest underwriter of municipal debt, wanted to brag about, at least in public, according to people with direct knowledge of the matter. The study, completed in March 2011, showed that problem with pension funds was indeed real: States and big cities had amassed trillions of dollars of unfunded liabilities for their public pension systems.
At the same time, these municipalities were failing to properly account for their exploding pension costs, and the only way out of the mess involved public officials making some politically difficult decisions, including raising taxes significantly, slashing budgets, and demanding that public workers pay a portion of their retirement benefits.”
In an interview on Fox Business, Gasparino specifically mentioned Massachusetts. My Town of Andover alone, has amassed nearly $215M in Unfunded Liabilities for our FY2013 budget noted as Post Employment Benefits (OPEB) Liabilities . The Top 50 Cities and Towns in MA ( There are 296 towns and 13 Cities) have amassed $20B in OPEB Liabilities.
In 2011 41% of all of our state’s total Combined Debt and Pension Liability was due to Unfunded Pensions!
Over the last few years, the Federal Reserve has steered our economy to unprecedented low interest rates which has served to mask our Pension liability ticking time bomb. Any uptick in interest rates will unleash the consequences in the JP Morgan report.

Thoroughly researched and amply documented, The New Leviathan overturns the conventional wisdom about which end of the political spectrum represents the rich and powerful, and which represents the people.
Read this and be afraid.” – Karl Rove

If you were wondering why Congress has the lowest approval ratings of all our branches of government, you have to view the following Congressional testimony by Peter Schiff and his confrontational treated by the FHA committee members as contrasted by the accommodating reception to lobbyists.
If the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result then our economy is headed “Over a cliff” because of the insanity of our inside the beltway Washington Elite. The following was distributed by Peter:
On Friday, I sent you a link to the video of my June 7th Congressional testimony regarding the Federal Housing Authority loan policy. Given that the exchanges I had with the Congressmen so clearly illuminate the flawed legislative process and the ignorance that many have about the workings of the free market, I wanted to take this opportunity to resend this important video.
If you share my opinion on economic issues, please help me make this video go viral. For those of you who haven’t had the chance to watch the full 33 minutes, I have compiled a guide to the juiciest highlights below.
<6:06 - My Opening Statement 11:16 - "I don't know whether to go to Mr. Schiff or not, but I guess I will" - Judy Biggert (R) I explain to Chairwoman Judy Biggert why federal involvement in home lending has created more problems than it has solved. 16:22 - "Despite all the sound and fury, there's not a lot of details..." - Robert Hurt (R) My proposals that old regulations be repealed, rather than new ones proposed, in order for the free market to come up with solutions are repeatedly lost on Congressman Robert Hurt. 25:16 - "Mr. Schiff, I just have one question..." - Emanuel Cleaver II (D) Congressman Emanuel Cleaver II unsuccessfully tries to 'nail' me. Instead, a spirited discussion ensues in which I remind the congressman of the moral hazard and economic costs of government subsidies. 30:38 - "Maybe that happens in an Ayn Rand novel..." - Brad Sherman (D) Congressman Brad Sherman asserts that as a practical matter the federal government, in one way or another, insures all homes, and that only characters in an Ayn Rand novel would believe otherwise.

On the evening of January 11, 1996, while Mitt Romney was in the final years of his run as the head of Bain Capital, Barack Obama formally joined the New Party, which was deeply hostile to the mainstream of the Democratic Party and even to American capitalism. In 2008, candidate Obama deceived the American public about his potentially damaging tie to this third party. The issue remains as fresh as today’s headlines, as Romney argues that Obama is trying to move the United States toward European-style social democracy, which was precisely the New Party’s goal. …
