Cooking the Books on Climate Change


Cooking the books; misstating and representing the "Surveyed" Papers said to support Global Warming to come to a 97% support:
"First the Los Angeles Times, and now the popular website Reddit have banned critical comments on global warming orthodoxy in responses to their articles. Giuseppe Macri of The Daily Caller reports:A content editor on Reddit's science forum wrote Monday that the site has banned climate-change skeptics, and asks why more news outlets haven't done the same."About a year ago, we moderators became increasingly stringent with deniers," Reddit content editor Nathan Allenwrote in grist. "When a potentially controversial submission was posted, a warning would be issued stating the rules for comments (most importantly that your comment isn't a conspiracy theory) and advising that further violations of the rules could result in the commenter being banned from the forum."" 
"Allen explained further:When 97 percent of climate scientists agree that man is changing the climate, we would hope the comments would at least acknowledge if not reflect such widespread consensus. Since that was not the case, we needed more than just an ad hoc approach to correct the situation."
-Thomas Lifson: AmericanThinker.com

"Cook and his colleagues, for example, classified a peer-reviewed paper by scientist Craig Idso as explicitly supporting the ‘consensus’ position on global warming “without minimizing” the asserted severity of global warming. When Popular Technology asked Idso whether this was an accurate characterization of his paper, Idso responded, “That is not an accurate representation of my paper. The papers examined how the rise in atmospheric CO2 could be inducing a phase advance in the spring portion of the atmosphere’s seasonal CO2 cycle. Other literature had previously claimed a measured advance was due to rising temperatures, but we showed that it was quite likely the rise in atmospheric CO2 itself was responsible for the lion’s share of the change. It would be incorrect to claim that our paper was an endorsement of CO2-induced global warming.”" 
-James Taylor: forbes.com
"Key components of the manufactured "consensus" fade under scrutiny. We often hear how the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) and the American Meteorological Society (AMS) issued statements endorsing the so-called "consensus" view that man is driving global warming. But what you don't hear is that both the NAS and AMS never allowed member scientists to directly vote on these climate statements.
Essentially, only two dozen or so members on the governing boards of these institutions produced the "consensus" statements. It appears that the governing boards of these organizations caved in to pressure from those promoting the politically correct view of UN and Gore-inspired science. The Canadian Academy of Sciences reportedly endorsed a "consensus" global warming statement that was never even approved by its governing board.
Rank-and-file scientists are now openly rebelling. James Spann, a certified meteorologist with the AMS, openly defied the organization when he said in January that he does "not know of a single TV meteorologist who buys into the man-made global warming hype." In February a panel of meteorologists expressed unanimous climate skepticism, and one panelist estimated that 95% of his profession rejects global warming fears.
In August 2007, a comprehensive survey of peer-reviewed scientific literature from 2004-2007 revealed "Less Than Half of all Published Scientists Endorse Global Warming Theory."
"Of 539 total papers on climate change, only 38 (7%) gave an explicit endorsement of the consensus. If one considers 'implicit' endorsement (accepting the consensus without explicit statement), the figure rises to 45%. However, while only 32 papers (6%) reject the consensus outright, the largest category (48%) are neutral papers, refusing to either accept or reject the hypothesis.  This is no 'consensus,'" according to an August 29, 2007 article in Daily Tech."
-Marc Morano: U.S. Senate Environment & Public Works Committee 

7% of 538 Papers on Climate Change endorsing Global Warming is not 97% it is not even 50%, it is in the vast minority.
"More than 1,000 dissenting scientists (updates previous 700 scientist report) from around the globe have now challenged man-made global warming claims made by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and former Vice President Al Gore. This new 2010 321-page Climate Depot Special Report — updated from the 2007 groundbreaking U.S. Senate Report of over 400 scientists who voiced skepticism about the so-called global warming “consensus” — features the skeptical voices of over 1,000 international scientists, including many current and former UN IPCC scientists, who have now turned against the UN IPCC. This updated 2010 report includes a dramatic increase of over 300 additional (and growing) scientists and climate researchers since the last update in March 2009. This report’s release coincides with the 2010 UN global warming summit in being held in Cancun.
The more than 300 additional scientists added to this report since March 2009 (21 months ago), represents an average of nearly four skeptical scientists a week speaking out publicly. The well over 1,000 dissenting scientists are almost 20 times the number of UN scientists (52) who authored the media-hyped IPCC 2007 Summary for Policymakers.
The chorus of skeptical scientific voices grew louder in 2010 as the Climategate scandal — which involved the upper echelon of UN IPCC scientists — detonated upon on the international climate movement. “I view Climategate as science fraud, pure and simple,” said noted Princeton Physicist Dr. Robert Austin shortly after the scandal broke. Climategate prompted UN IPCC scientists to turn on each other. UN IPCC scientist Eduardo Zorita publicly declared that his Climategate colleagues Michael Mann and Phil Jones “should be barred from the IPCC process…They are not credible anymore.” Zorita also noted how insular the IPCC science had become. “By writing these lines I will just probably achieve that a few of my future studies will, again, not see the light of publication,” Zorita wrote. A UN lead author Richard Tol grew disillusioned with the IPCC and lamented that it had been “captured” and demanded that “the Chair of IPCC and the Chairs of the IPCC Working Groups should be removed.” Tol also publicly called for the “suspension” of IPCC Process in 2010 after being invited by the UN to participate as lead author again in the next IPCC Report. [Note: Zorita and Tol are not included in the count of dissenting scientists in this report.]"
-Marc Morano: Climate Depot

Climate Change Reconsidered II, authored by the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC), and published by the Heartland Institute.
“is an international panel of scientists and scholars who came together to understand the causes and consequences of climate change.  NIPCC has no formal attachment to or sponsorship from any government or governmental agency.  It is wholly independent of political pressures or influences and therefore is not predisposed to produce politically motivated conclusions or policy recommendations.  NIPCC seeks to objectively analyze and interpret data and facts without conforming to any specific agenda.  This organizational structure and purpose stand in contrast to those of the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which is government-sponsored, politically motivated, and predisposed to believing that climate change is a problem in need of a U.N. solution.”
...The report is “comprehensive, objective, and faithful to the scientific method.”  Moreover, it is “double peer reviewed,” in that it discusses thousands of peer reviewed articles published in scientific journals, and is itself peer reviewed.  That is in sharp contrast to President Obama’s own EPA, which issued its “endangerment finding” legally authorizing regulation of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, without submitting the finding to its own peer review board established by federal law precisely for that purpose.  What were they so afraid of if 97% of scientists supposedly agree with them?  That violation of federal law has now been challenged in court, and is pending before the U.S. Supreme Court.  But this would not be the first time that the Administration of this lawless President has openly flouted the law.
...The authors of the report do not deny that there is some effect of warming the planet from mankind’s emissions of CO2, primarily from use of traditional carbon fuels such as oil, coal, and natural gas.  The argument is over how big of an effect that is, how that compares to natural causes of climate change, and whether the human caused effect threatens a catastrophe, or even severe distress, to human civilization and the environment.  The conclusion of the report is that the U.N.’s IPCC has exaggerated the amount of global warming likely to occur due to mankind’s emissions of CO2, and the warming that human civilization will cause as a result “is likely to be modest and cause no net harm to the global environment or to human well-being.”&; The primary, dominant cause of global climate change is natural causes, not human effects, the report concludes.&; “The hypothesis of human-caused global warming comes up short not merely of ‘full scientific certainty’ but of reasonable certainty or even plausibility,” the report states.

The fundamentals of the argument is that CO2 is not some toxic industrial gas, but a natural, trace gas constituting just 0.038% of the atmosphere.  For readers disadvantaged by excessive exposure to the party propaganda organ called the New York Times, that is less than 4/100ths of one percent.  The report states, “At the current level of 400 parts per million, we still live in a CO2-starved world.  Atmospheric levels (of CO2) 15 times greater existed during the pre-Cambrian period (about 550 million years ago) without known adverse effects,” such as catastrophic global warming
-Peter Ferrara: forbes

On September 17th, 2013:
 "...a group of 50 international scientists released a comprehensive new report on the science of climate change that concluded that evidence now leans against global warming resulting from human-related greenhouse gas emissions.: 
-Tony Lee: breitbart.com

That report you can read for yourself here:
Climate Change Reconsidered II: Physical Science [REPORT]

Peer-Reviewed Survey Finds Majority Of Scientists Skeptical Of Global Warming Crisis -forbes
Seen Here:

World's top climate scientists confess: Global warming is just QUARTER what we thought - and computers got the effects of greenhouse gases wrong:
A leaked copy of the world’s most authoritative climate study reveals scientific forecasts of imminent doom were drastically wrong.
The Mail on Sunday has obtained the final draft of a report to be published later this month by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the ultimate watchdog whose massive, six-yearly ‘assessments’ are accepted by environmentalists, politicians and experts as the gospel of climate science.
They are cited worldwide to justify swingeing fossil fuel taxes and subsidies for ‘renewable’ energy.
Yet the leaked report makes the extraordinary concession that over the past 15 years, recorded world temperatures have increased at only a quarter of the rate of IPCC claimed when it published its last assessment in 2007.
Back then, it said observed warming over the 15 years from 1990-2005 had taken place at a rate of 0.2C per decade, and it predicted this would continue for the following 20 years, on the basis of forecasts made by computer climate models.
But the new report says the observed warming over the more recent 15 years to 2012 was just 0.05C per decade - below almost all computer predictions.

-David Rose: DailyMail UK

So what we get from all this is and other data not represented here but freely available elsewhere; Is that some leading scientists and World Leaders are working together to manipulate data for their own objectives. Carbon Tax, Air Tax, Etc.

Real scientific data shows that the World goes through multiple cooling and warming periods every decade or couple of decades and that we are actually based on historical known levels to present in a starved CO2 environment and no where near the World Norm.

We are being manipulated for someone else's personal gain, and we need to put a stop to this once and for all.

Webcam Intrigue: Helping Spies Spy on you

"If you're one of those people who gets made fun of for putting a piece of tape over your webcam, don't worry—you're not crazy. Unfortunately, your paranoia is justified, since it is, in fact, possible for the internet's n'er-do-wells to secretly seize power of your computer's forward-facing camera."

For Your Safety: Dragnet Spying Tactics

'It's not Spying, it's data collection' {For Your Safety} -American Senators

is like saying

'It's not PeepingTom, It's Bathroom Maintenance' {For Your Safety}

-R. William Holzkopf Jr.
Director of the ACLU’s Privacy and Technology department Ben Wizener appeared on CNN to say “this is a good day for Edward Snowden.”
Wizener believes that yesterdays court ruling from a federal judge appointed by George W. Bush which challenged the NSA’s blanket data collection program is “what happens when important legal issues are decided in open courts, where both sides get to make legal arguments. Rather than in secret courts where the government alone gets to present arguments to a court. This is, I think, a good day for Edward Snowden. This is what he had in mind. He saw programs. He doubted their legality. He saw that the oversight mechanisms had failed. That secret courts had become a rubber stamp. That congressional committees had been enabling rather than, than actually exercising oversight. And so he brought the information to the public through journalists and he brought it to the lawyers who brought this case.” 
http://thelibertarianrepublic.com/good-day-edward-snowden/#axzz2nl6EJlV2
“American Senators tell us that Brazil should not worry, because this is not ‘surveillance,’ it’s ‘data collection.’ They say it is done to keep you safe. They’re wrong. There is a huge difference between legal programs, legitimate spying, legitimate law enforcement — where individuals are targeted based on a reasonable, individualized suspicion — and these programs of dragnet mass surveillance that put entire populations under an all-seeing eye and save copies forever. These programs were never about terrorism: they’re about economic spying, social control, and diplomatic manipulation. They’re about power.”

With Reckless Abandon: U.S. aids hardline Islamists

I'm afraid not many will truly understand this at all, and how it will affect us.

There is a war for power and the balance is shifting incredibly close to the side that supports Rights restriction and things that look very much like forms of slavery.

This is not to say Russia is the 'Golden Savior', however Russia is the blockade that helps maintain the balance of sanity in the World currently (Irony served mainly to Americans), whatever sanity remains.

If Russia falls so does the rest of the World.

America fell a long time ago and we are currently reaping what has been sewn.

"The Islamic Front includes the Ahrar al-Sham, Jaysh al-Islam, Suqour al-Sham, Liwa al-Tawhid, Liwa al-Haqq, Ansar al-Sham, and the Kurdish Islamic Front. Jaish al-Islam, or Army of Islam, is itself a coalition of mercenary groups funded and supported by Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey. Although the front reportedly excluded al-Nusra and the al-Qaeda inspired Islamic State of Iraq and the Sham (ISIS), it shares a radical jihadist ideology.
Jaysh al-Islam, formerly known as Liwa al-Islam or the Islam Brigade, is supported by Saudi Arabia and has cooperated with al-Nusra, the most successful and vicious fighting group in Syria that has pledged allegiance to al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri. This collaboration is left unmentioned in corporate media reports on the new Islamic alliance." -infowars

EU claims Oreos as addictive as Cocaine

"When you eat refined processed sugars, they trigger production of your brain’s natural opioids — a key ingredient in the addiction process. Your brain essentially becomes addicted to stimulating the release of its own opioids as it would to morphine or heroin."

Cooking Splenda (Sucralose) produces Dioxins

"The discovery that thermal breakdown through cooking can lead to the formation of highly toxic and equally persistent chlorinated compounds, including dioxins, should raise a series of red flags for consumers, manufacturers and regulators as the information becomes more widespread. A cursory perusal of the World Health Organization’s description of ‘Dioxins and their effects on human health,’ which lists it as belonging to the “dirty dozen” of the world’s most dangerous pollutants, will see what is at stake here." -livefreenatural.com

A new, in-depth review on the synthetic sweetener sucralose (marketed as Splenda), published in the journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health, is destined to overturn widely held misconceptions about the purported safety of this ubiquitous artificial sweetener.
Found in tens of thousands of products and used by millions of consumers around the world, sucralose’s unique ability to dissolve in alcohol and methanol as well as water, makes it the most versatile and therefore most widely used artificial sweetener in production today. And yet, its popularity is no indication nor guarantee of its safety, as is evidenced by the widespread use of other artificial sweeteners like aspartame, which while being safety approved in 90 nations around the world, has been linked to a wide range of serious health conditions including brain damage.

To big to Fail; Obamacare the ACA!

"When people become apologists for a fatally flawed system, they tend to put defense of that system above the welfare of its victims."-mygovcost.com

"“The only way to ensure the participation of the young invincibles is to strengthen the mandate by making the opt-out tax as costly as buying insurance.” Got that, healthy young people? If you think Obamacare is not for you, Akhilesh Pathipati wants to jack up your fine, big time." -K. Lloyd Billingsley



This isn't choice people. 
This is Forced acceptance. 
This is Totalitarian and only a people who are not free get ultimatums and forced measures put upon them by their own Elected officials!

Wake up and smell the Tyranny.

Before it's too late!


Below text written by K. Lloyd Billingsley of mygovcost.com

As we have noted, Obamacare violates medical ethics by first doing harm. In the early going, in violation of repeated presidential promises, Obamacare stripped many embattled Americans of the health plans they had selected. This pushed them toward the dysfunctional and insecure Obamacare website, where they would get the news about higher premiums and bigger deductibles. Even on December 1 key parts of the website were not even built, so those who “enrolled” might find on January 1 that they don’t have insurance after all. The doctors people were told they could keep are fleeing the system. That is quite a record of damage, but one Obamacare enthusiast wants the system to be even more punitive.
Akhilesh Pathipati is a Stanford medical student who has “worked on health initiatives in Massachusetts and California,” according to his author line in this Sacramento Bee piece. Obamacare “has had its share of well-publicized struggles,” he writes, “but it’s only a matter of time before the website glitches are gone.” Further, “the flaw in an otherwise straightforward design is a weak individual mandate.”
“Young people like me are the linchpin to making health care reform successful,” he says. But without their participation, “more gets paid out than gets paid in so premiums rise, and the system falls apart.” If the young and healthy “invincibles” determine that the costs are too high and decline to participate, Obamacare punishes them with a fine. As Pathipati has it, if a young man earning $40,000 a year declines even the cheapest plan, “opting out would only cost him a $300 tax penalty.” The Stanford medical student has the answer.
“The only way to ensure the participation of the young invincibles is to strengthen the mandate by making the opt-out tax as costly as buying insurance.” Got that, healthy young people? If you think Obamacare is not for you, Akhilesh Pathipati wants to jack up your fine, big time.
Pathipati acknowledges that young people are not signing up in sufficient numbers, and the prospect of stiffer fines is unlikely to make them do so. But young and old alike can learn a lesson here. When people become apologists for a fatally flawed system, they tend to put defense of that system above the welfare of its victims. Medical student Akhilesh Pathipati has yet to learn that if a treatment harms the patient one should stop the treatment.

Cop shoots 23 Year Old Unarmed Student

Cop Kills Unarmed Student


Honor Student shot and killed by Campus Police Officer after traffic stop on Friday December 6th, 2013 as reported by KSAT.

Robert Cameron Redus, 23, was a communication arts major from Baytown set to graduate in May, according to Debra del Toro, UIW spokeswoman.
-KSAT 
The Officer unloaded his weapon into the Student...
“I didn’t hear him say anything like, ‘Get down on your hands and knees,’ you know? I didn’t hear him say anything. He just started shooting,” one witness said. “He emptied the gun on him… Boom, boom, boom.Six shots — five or six.”
Another witness, Mohammad Haidarasl, says that Redus’ last words were “Oh, you’re gonna shoot me?” said to Carter in a sarcastic off-handed tone. Haidarasl added that he heard the officer saying “Stop resisting, stop resisting.”

Pope Francis A Deceiver?

Hey MORON's!

It's NOT Capitalism!!! It's the Socialist Take over of Capitalism!!!
And this happened before even I was born, it just became more visible in the past decade.

http://rt.com/op-edge/pope-francis-about-capitalism-816/

I'm not saying, the whole World couldn't use a dose of [Wake The F- Up!], and pursue time tested items like Charitable organizations instead of Government Welfare. One Worked amazingly well, the other is in utter failure.

I'm not saying that a One World Government (In a PERFECT UNIVERSE), might have a positive effect, wherein Citizens remained Sovereign, and Religion did not dictate our Politics and Methodology, but Common Sense and Logic did. However, the people and Groups currently vying for control, have nothing, absolutely nothing in the rest of the Worlds best interest; and they have become bold in that they announce it every chance they get like Bullies on street corners threatening you for your lunch money.

I'm not saying Pope Benedict is wrong when he says we need to level the playing field... but the problem is not with Capitalism, it is the Socialist and Socialist policies around the World that have over the years and more so in recent time infiltrated and twisted a system that made the West Prosperous and created the Largest ever wealthy Middle Class in history, where even the poor, had a roof, clothes and food, (At least in the United States for a time).

If anyone is selling you on how bad capitalism is, the off chance they are some kind of Socialist or closet Socialist is high. Socialism is one word to describe a whole entity of groups of similar foundation and process, of which is called Collectivism. Under Collectivism you have Socialism, Fascism, Communism and others.

Collectivists antipathy is Capitalism, and hate any method that makes progress and gives individuals freedom. Collectivism preaches Equality but in the end is always run by a few power hungry and greedy individuals who subjugate the rest, by creating dividing the people against each other, while raking in property and wealth from those that follow them and those that don't. The followers initially give up their rights and wealth by choice thinking its for the greater good. The Non-followers are forced to, and in historical cases and even in some places in the world just plain out killed for what they have.

Capitalism in basic, is 'to the best persons the Spoils' and many people have the ability to gain such things. Those that don't, either haven't tried or just don't have a knack for it (sorry, not everyone can be a Doctor, even with all the education possible). The intelligent thing to do is find an area you are good in (Aptitude and Skills tests), and put your focus and effort into that.

Some people that are attracted to Collectivism are those who want something for nothing. Yes it is possible to have truly free and excellent Health care for example, however that requires completely changing our paradigm on how we operate in terms of buying and selling, manufacturing and trading, and so on.

This will never happen though, at least for the moment since too many powerful people, who are given power by everyone else in one way or another. Believe that pieces of rock and metal have financial wealth, and pieces of paper based on the concept that because someone [says so], a piece of paper now has an arbitrary amount of value without the backing of a physical object like let's say Gold or Silver or even Platinum.

Many of the powerful people in the World have acquired most of the Gold Silver and Platinum, so they create 'Fiat' monetary systems so now they can have wealth that is created out of thin air. Need more money.. just print it, adjust numbers and play with speculation to keep prices reasonable to the amount people earn, so that inflation doesn't go wildly out of control. The inflation is debt, it is passed on to the non-wealthy so that the powerful can become more wealthy and powerful.

This in turn is used against us that don't understand simple concepts like wealth, property and how they apply to a Sovereign Individual and a system of economics.

So we are told lease this, and credit this while not being taught how to properly manage our finances (Part purposeful intent and part self-infliction), We Mortgage to affect our credit instead of saving and buying outright. our Inflation goes up because some idiot printed more money, but in fact that idiot is smarter than us because He holds the keys to our wealth, and most of what we own is debt because we gave Him much of the wealth we have, because we didn't own items outright.

So the Talking Heads blame the Rich, the Rich Blame the Rich, the poor are enticed, they are incited to riot, to hate the rich, to hate the middle class, as the Middle class hates the rich and the poor.

The Middle Class:
The Rich; because if a middle class person goes out of there tax bracket into the higher one by $1.00 they now pay much more heavily in taxes than the probably should.
The Poor; because many are on Welfare and the middle class is taxed heavily for that as well.

The Poor:
The Rich; because they have more money than they know what to do with, because they can afford to be extra charitable, because they are in a position that the rest are not. Even if they worked for it.
The Middle Class; similar arguments.

The Rich:
The Rich; Seems like a shell game, but their are varying levels of being "Rich". The very powerful rich are not 'seemingly' affected by laws and bills and such that would affect the "New" Rich or Less wealthy Rich, so inciting the public against their Rich counterparts gains them Wealth and power.
The Poor; because they are a burden on society, they are uneducated, they are a disease.
The Middle Class; because these people have the ability to become Rich and that would take away the Wealth for those who already have it.

Collectivism starts by making Big wide promises that sound good in theory but to implement are impossible under the current paradigm. Then it makes the former system look bad by instituting changes that are sold to help people, but end up doing the opposite. The people become angry because now they cannot put food on the table and their losing their house, or their vehicle, or they can no longer buy clothes for themselves or their kids.

Collectivism, then shows how bad the former system is and how good it's system will be. People just want to eat, have their homes back and be clothed so logic with common sense and intelligence go out the window for anything that will change their circumstance (whether through fault of their own or not).

Then Collectivism engineers financial crisis's and eventually monetary collapse all while using leaders who people thought where linked to the former system but in actuality where either bought by the Collectivists or for whatever deranged reason actually believed in their tenets.

After everything is in ruins, and possibly after a civil uprising (that could cause many deaths), While everyone is in a rage and blaming each other the Collectivist comes in and offers a solution, usually one that points a finger at any group but their own. and offers a new Monetary system (Still based on the old but dressed up in fancy new lingo), and promises a plate of food in every home, a bed for every head if you will just give us your unconditional surrender, they will make all this happen.

I look at the Soviet Union, I look at Nationalist Germany, I look at Cambodia and much of Africa. I look at China. How anyone with a brain can not see the utter failure of Collectivisms support of the people, how the common people suffer and become mostly uneducated. How the few dictate everything, no matter how ludicrous and irresponsible and dangerous. How their is no respect for decency or life.

And then claim that the only thing that made the vast majority of common people Wealthy and free in the Modern World for the FIRST TIME EVER in recorded history is the issue.

No! The issue is the usurpation and commandeering of the ship we call Capitalism and it's utter destruction from the inside out by the very people saying it is bad.

We could very well wake up one day to find ourselves in a concentration camp, or worse!

Hippies had one thing right, Everyone should be free and happy. However to maintain such a thing people need to defend such a thing against all forms of tyranny.

The ACA (Obamacare) Woe be upon those who have to support everyone else

End Result: http://www.mygovcost.org/2013/12/04/irs-guarantees-obamacare-collapse/

The Why: http://www.mygovcost.org/2013/11/08/irs-sends-3-6-billion-to-identity-thieves/

The How: http://www.mygovcost.org/2013/10/21/irs-giveaway-sweepstakes-continued/

Not enough 'Young' people are signing up for the ACA (Obamacare), this is an issue for Obama the ACA government supporters and the IRS. WHY you ask?
Because Young people statistically are healthier (Reason for forcing people by mandate to have the ACA), Many in theory would pay the higher rates which one would need to get the appropriate amount of health coverage if ever needed.

With out all these Young working class people paying exorbitant rates, to cover all the 'Unhealthy' (Many older persons, over the age of 45+), the system could very well collapse by weight alone.

Also, People considered in the older category will be counseled on changes so that their coverage can be minimized, especially the most 'at risk' patients.

And the Nugget in the box no one seems to be talking about; people 75 years of age and older will get "End of Life Counseling", meaning if you are 75+ you do not get Health insurance, you are either healthy or you die. This is tantamount to Euthanasia!

A large majority of Americans especially the 45+ and 'At Risk' persons, have gotten Insurance cancellations because their insurance plans don't meet the Governments idea of Health coverage.. so many who need excellent care will have to down grade and those who need no care will have to divvy up.

Obama ended up extending the time frame for ACA sign up, may have been because his approval rating dropped to 9%, but I'm sure angry Americans of all colors who realized that the "promises" Obama and his talking heads fed them to win votes, where empty, might have been another.

It's hard to see exactly what manner  of reaction Obama and his groupies were going for, since their is so much duplicity abound.

"Free" Healthcare is always a nice Utopian idea, until one realizes (if it ever occurs to them at all), that someone still has to pay for it in the end.

The only way to supply it here Stateside would be to force every Citizen to do just that so that every Citizen can get it.

And guess what, Forcing someone to pay for something is NOT free by any means. Free-Gratis, means getting something for 'Absolutely' Nothing.

So how is "Universal Health Care" or the ACA (Obamacare), Free?
It is not!
It is a Tax! A Tax on Healthcare, passed on to Each Citizen, Well each Citizen that Works and is not wholly on Welfare, that is. Though some of our taxes are already paying for that as well!

What happens when more people are on the Welfare system than working to fund it?

It is really simple math.

If you have 15 people; 5 of which are working and getting taxes taken out for Welfare and other Government Programs. Plus paying (getting taxed) by force to fund a "Free" healthcare system.

And, you have 10 people on Welfare and not working, which allows them to get that said Healthcare for free.

At what point would any of the 5 working people forgo their jobs to gain free healthcare?

{This does not include those who work minimally and are on some welfare programs but not all. Many of these people will eventually figure out it is easier and cheaper to not work and try their hand at full Welfare, so as to not have to pay the costs for nonworking welfare recipients.}

This is an extreme postulation, but plausible.
Too many people are spouting rhetoric they do not understand, because Joe Schmoe and Lucy Ducey and their Fav Political Leader said so!

Yet as they spout what they don't understand as veritable and indisputable, not one has actually read the whole 5000 + page Healthcare Bill, or seen and talked to Pharmacists who just throw up their hands because the Government State or Federal are not paying their bills for the pills that people are being subscribed.

Smaller Pharmacy's are either going out of business or going into or completely going into [Compounding] (
Have fun everyone, what's in your wallet!?

Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP)

What is the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP)?

Well it was supposed to be a secret agreement  (a draft treaty chapter from the Intellectual Property group of the Trans-Pacific Partnership), this is in relation to talks between the United States, Japan, Mexico, Canada, Australia, Malaysia, Chile, Singapore, Peru, Vietnam, New Zealand and Brunei Darussalam.

    "The treaty is being negotiated  in secret by delegations from each of the 12 countries, who together account for 40% of global GDP. The chapter covers proposed international obligations and enforcement mechanisms for copyright, trademark and patent law, and includes the combined positions of all of the parties as they were by the end of August 2013." 

    -wikileaks

And what does this mean for all of us Lay Folk, it

    "spells out provisions for implementing a transnational “enforcement regime” designed to supplant national laws and sovereignty with a globalist construct. The TPP is by far the largest and most oppressive economic treaty devised thus far. It will have an impact on a staggering 40 percent of worldwide GDP. The TPP is the forerunner to the equally secret US-EU Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). Both treaties combined will cover 60 percent of world GDP and exclude China.

    Enforcement will be accomplished by “supranational litigation tribunals to which sovereign national courts are expected to defer.” According to the document, the globalist courts can conduct hearings with secret evidence."

    -Kurt Nimmo
    Infowars.com

  This is a more powerful method to do what SOPA and ACTA were supposed to do with draconian surveilance and free speech and intellectual rights.

    "Obama is poised to fast-track the secret agreement. “The US administration is aggressively pushing the TPP through the US legislative process on the sly...

    ...If instituted, the TPP’s IP regime would trample over individual rights and free expression, as well as ride roughshod over the intellectual and creative commons. If you read, write, publish, think, listen, dance, sing or invent; if you farm or consume food; if you’re ill now or might one day be ill, the TPP has you in its crosshairs,"

    -Julian Assange

 In any regard this is just another of many attempts by powerful people to subvert the Rights of the Common Man to continue tying the chains of our enslavement to them.

WWII Memorial Barricades torn down many thrown in front of White House

The “Million Vet March” seems to have had some success today Oct. 13th, 2013.

The Vets and their supporters tore down and removed many of the barricades blocking the War Memorials.

Many were showing support by imitating the 'Iwo Jima' flag planting.

Million Vet March Website states:
"This is why we will go to Congress after the budget crisis and ask for a bill to be introduced that would prevent any member of the government from closing our memorials down to any American, except for maintenance purposes.  In the meantime, we will have our March in Washington DC on October 13th!  Our veterans deserve that!"

This seems to have turned out peaceful and has had a small world impression, how long this lasts, is anyone's guess.

Psychiatrists deeply concerned for 5% of Americans who approve of congress

http://www.sott.net/article/267382-Psychiatrists-deeply-concerned-for-5-of-Americans-who-approve-of-congress

"Noting that the individuals in question may be extremely mentally disturbed or suffering from a serious psychological illness, the nation's psychiatrists announced Wednesday that they are deeply concerned for the estimated 5 percent of Americans who were found in nationwide polls this week to approve of the U.S. Congress." -sott.net

The Blame Game for Government Shutdown

Over the past week or so I have heard many people bitingly rip into the republicans for responsibility for the government shutdown and for not funding this or that.

(I'm not one to defend Republican or Democrat ideology at any length)

The problem with this notion is 1) The Democrats are also responsible for the Shutdown 2) The Republicans and a few Dems/Independents voted to FUND EVERYTHING Except Obamacare [ACA] {With the glaring exception of The President himself and 3/4 of the Democrat party} 3) The Republicans immediately on the first day of shutdown Re-pushed through bills to fund the items like Reservists and such

Now we finally have More Democrats waking up and pushing for the same thing.



The problem with the Repub and Dem party lines is they are just playing the Nation for votes and in the end it matters not who wins the presidency or congressional seats. (The vast majority of them have either broken their Oaths of office, or have acted in a Treasonous manner more than once), We end up with the same thing just with slightly altered wording. It's a game that keeps us (the Citizen), running in circles while they (the ones voted {Supposedly} into power), get to keep hold of their power, position and keep grabbing for more and more of our money, even if it puts us into further debt.

Right now, they (The Congressional Leaders and the President) are protected in vague terms from the debt they are inflicting upon us (the People of the U.S.A), while we (the Citizens), have to work off for generations their (the Leaders), folly.

Things that should be done by way of the Constitution and the Supporting Laws of the land.

1) Arrest, Trial and Convict (if a conviction is found), all those who have publicly and (if known), privately broken their Oath of Office.

2) Arrest, Trial and Convict (if a conviction is found), all those who have publicly and (if known), privately done acts of Treason while serving us the Citizens in Government positions.

3) Have a Public Constitutional Committee sat by regular working Americans (No one who has served Public office to be allowed. No Corporate backing whatsoever). Decree that all those convicted of Oath Breaking and Treason shall not be able to take up office in the United States Government again and also their Families for up to at least one generation.

4) The Public Constitutional Committee shall request and work with the United States Military Branches to keep secure our Borders, Seat of Government, while putting all international military operations on hold until the Government is re-situated.

5) The Public Constitutional Committee shall Void all Contracts and policies with Private Organizations/Companies until they can each be reviewed by the Newly Elected Congress for Legality, Constitutionality and determination of Necessity. While also voiding until further review all monies (Aid), export by way of contract, policy and or treaty to foreign nations and or entities.

6) The Public Constitutional Committee shall hold a nationwide vote to fill the vacancy's left by the convicted Leaders, Holding quorum for any political party or Non-affiliated party runner. (i.e. Libertarian, Constitutionalist, Green, Socialist, Non-Affiliated, Republican, Democrat, Independent, Etc.)

7) The Public Constitutional Committee shall Decree that the New Congress will put to vote the 28th Amendment.

8) The Public Constitutional Committee shall Decree that the New Congress will put to vote an Amendment for new term limits for all offices of Government, in light of and to prevent Cronyism, Nepotism and other such things. (Example: President 1 Term 2 year limit, Senators 1 Term 3 year limit and so on).

9) The Public Constitutional Committee shall Decree (with uninterrupted Public Press Coverage), that once all vacancy’s left void due to arrest and conviction are filled. That the New Congress shall review all Aspects of the Old Governments policies, bills, Statutes, Executive Orders, and Programs (in reference to the Constitution), and vote on either Fully cutting them, Trimming them, and or changing them.

10) The Public Constitutional Committee shall Decree that the New Congress shall review all Aspects of the Old Governments Bureaus and Departments and either merge or fully get rid of based on the Need of the Nation and in the interest of creating surplus out of debt.

11) The Public Constitutional Committee shall Decree that the New Congress shall review all Aspects of the Old Governments Contracts and or Policies were they work with or have Private Companies do Government work whether or not it is authorized by the U.S. Constitution.

12) The Public Constitutional Committee shall Decree that the New Congress in reviewing the Private Companies will make a 5 or 7 year plan to move our Country from Fiat Debt Money ({Private} Federal Reserve Company Notes), back to U.S. Treasury Precious Metals backed Notes. And Enact a Law or Amendment that will prevent such Usurpation of Congressional Authority even by Congress itself over the National Money System.

13) The Public Constitutional Committee shall Decree that the New Congress will review all Government Debt for the United States of America and either take steps to paying it down after the Monetary system is transferred over to the U.S. Treasury and or conclude that certain aspects of the debt are invalidated due to it being on the Fiat system and is the responsibility of the Private owners of the Federal Reserve Company, who helped instigate and create such debt in the first place.

14) The Public Constitutional Committee shall Decree that the New Congress will review all Foreign Military actions and Bases and facilities and vote on each ones necessity, with ultimate goal of downsizing our Foreign footprint and upgrading our Domestic security.

15) The Public Constitutional Committee shall Decree that the New Congress shall review all Treaties with all Countries, and restructure the foreign policy toward all nations.

16) The Public Constitutional Committee shall Decree that the New Congress shall create a bill that will 'Nation Build' our Domestic Infrastructure for roads, bridges, sewer, water, gas, oil (refineries), Electric (Underground Smart Grid), High Speed Railway systems, which will create a Job surplus. Working out deals so that local and national companies are working together in the same effort. (While helping to push forth test communities for Alternative Energies/Transportation and Building (using stronger and cheaper materials) While pushing research and production of materials such as Carbon 3 and Carbon Nano Tubes into the Private sector to help push up production and ingenuity as well as decreasing production costs.

17) Final act, the disassembly of the Public Constitutional Committee and the New Congress taking back the reigns of the Country.

P.S.
This is by far not a complete proposal, but it is a foundation for restructuring the United States of America while getting rid of as much corruption as is Humanly possible.

Ventura: ‘If You Don’t Work, We Shouldn’t Have to Pay Taxes’

Credit: Infowars.com

"Appearing on Piers Morgan’s show, Ventura declared that Democrats and Republicans have essentially “legalized bribery” in the American legislature, and that the only way to fix the system would be to elect independents to office."



"“I think it’s time for a revolt in this country. I’ve been advocating a revolution for years now.” Ventura said, adding “revolutions don’t have to be violent, but we need one, and I would tell everyone here, vote them all out of office and don’t vote in a new Democrat or Republican, vote for anyone BUT Democrats and Republicans.”

Ventura, himself an independent governor, recently announced that he is considering running for president as an independent in 2016."

"The Emperor Has No Clothes: WWII Vets Expose Obama’s Contempt Towards the American People

http://www.infowars.com/the-emperor-has-no-clothes-wwii-vets-expose-obamas-contempt-towards-the-american-people/

With over 800 WWII veterans dying every day, it is imperative for our greatest generation to be allowed access to the WWII Memorial in Washington, D.C. so they can honor their fellow Americans who never made it back home.

The memorial, funded primarily by private donations, is an architectural structure out in an open, public space.

There is NO access to it; it's outside!

Yet the Obama administration purposely erected barricades around the memorial to keep veterans out, under the guise of a "government shut down" which shouldn't affect access to a public memorial at all.

It is absolutely, completely disgusting that our veterans, who sacrificed so much as individuals, are being treated like this."

- The federal government actually put in effort to shut down electronic access to educational material already paid for by taxpayers during the current budget impasse.

- National Park Service workers are erecting a barricade around the World War II memorial to keep veterans out of the memorial, which was predominantly funded by private donations.

- At the beginning on the current government shutdown, Obama closed the White House to the public, denying tours to school children and families.
- The White House is however still open for elitists to attend state dinners and special events.

FEMA Region III: Crisis or Red Herring?

What are the FEMA Regions: See here: http://www.fema.gov/regional-operations
FEMA Preparing For A Major Event In Region III (No Prob. 386,000 UN Troops to handle.
Sleuth Journal ^ | FEMA Preparing For A Major Event In Region III | Lisa Cerda

Posted on Friday, September 20, 2013 3:44:19 PM by Responsibility2nd
Following the bread crumb trail of FEMA orders, retired State Senator Sheldon R. Songstad of South Dakota State issued an “Emergency Fema Region 3 Alert!!!,” on August 13th.
Region three is comprised of; Washington DC, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia.
Songstad’s research turned up some very interesting facts. Each item on its own could go unnoticed, but the collective facts may be worthy of your attention and scrutiny. The U.S. government appears to be preparing for a major event. It appears that this event is being staged for approximately Oct. 1st. Let’s look at the numbers and dates.
UN Peacekeepers began training the 4th week of July and will complete their nine week training by October 1st. They are learning English, as well as US weapon systems and Urban Warfare training.
How many troops are training? 386,000 troops!

Yes you may have seen or heard about this, but it may in fact just be a 'Red Herring'. 

Excerpt:

Is the FEMA Region III Alert a Red Herring?



Date Posted: Sunday 29-Sep-2013Thursday, September 26, 2013

Is the FEMA Region III Alert a Red Herring?

Michael T. Winter

Let us address the origin of the announcement itself. Ostensibly, it originated from Sheldon R. Songstad, a retired state representative and senator from South Dakota. He has been out of state politics for twenty-five years. One could ask, "How did he come up with all this information?" In digging a little further, it turns out the actual news itself originated from one David Eelles on 07.17.2013. 2. Mr. Eelles runs two websites. One is a gloom and doom site called Americas Last Days and the other is an 'end of days' religious site, here. There are several articles and clips regarding Mr. Eelles that can best be summarized by one of them, called "Prophet for Profit?"

To the alert itself, which on the surface is highly alarming and, dare I say, panic inducing (at least for people in Region III). A quick recitation of the various threads 'put together' by Songstad/Eelles are as follows:

15,000 Russians in Baltimore by October 1st.

82% of our combat forces and their supply elements out of CONUS by October 1st.

FEMA purchase orders for over $14.2 million for MREs and heater meals delivered to Region III by October 1st.

FEMA purchase orders for 22 million pouches of emergency water delivered to region III by October 1st.

FEMA purchase orders for $13.6 million for MREs and heater meals delivered to Austin by October 1st.

Nine-week training course for UN Peacekeepers in CONUS to learn Urban Warfare, English, and US weapons systems beginning 4th week of July for 386,000 troops to be completed by October 1st.

$11 million in antibiotics delivered to FEMA region III by October 1st ordered by CDC.

World Health Organization held second emergency meeting in its history to discuss MERs coronavirus. Determined a vaccine MUST be in place by October 1st.

2800 MRAPs delivered to DHS by October 1st. (Military urban assault vehicles).

No leave allowed for US military from September 28th thru November 5th.

NORCOMM yearly training for civil unrest suspended until September 27th. To be performed in northeast coastal areas.

Date for release of QE3 report moved to October 16th.

All DHS agents MUST qualify with sidearm, shotgun, and AR 15 by September 28th.

Sporadic testing of GPS and Communications satellites is coordinated for the first time with a testing date of September 29th.

POTUS mandates to FEMA and DHS concerning support for metropolitan communities dealing with the extreme climate change MUST be complete by October 1st.

Over 300 school systems in the US have determined they need three-day kits for each school AND three-day kits for each student to take with them. All deliveries scheduled for the month of September.

All National Guard units will complete riot control and disaster assistance training during this year's annual two week training. All units MUST have their training complete by September 30th.

Daily testing of the Emergency Broadcast System beginning on 09.25.2013 -10.02.2013.

Eastern-based Coast Guard units to perform massive group training usually performed in the Gulf, in the Virginia and Delaware areas. This is a 10-day training mission to begin September 26th.

Wow! Scary stuff! One wonders how a retired state politician and an 'end of days' minister sourced, collated and postulated all this information, much of which is internal military and FEMA directives not readily available to the general public. One must also question how this search and source operation could have breathed life? What impelled them to look at military and FEMA directives to begin with? I submit the information was made available to them from TPTB. In keeping with the globalists M.O., in all likelihood, both Eelles and Songstad are unwitting disinfo agents, thoroughly believing they 'stumbled' onto critical information the public needs to be aware of. The alternative media then took the horse and ran with it. Off to the races! Another national disinformation campaign is up and running! (Rubbing of hands and evil chuckles follow).

Options for reopening the U.S. Government

Rand Paul

"As a physician, I am trained to look for solutions to problems. The Republicans have offered several solutions and compromises in order to re-open the government.

Last night I discussed some of these solutions with Sean Hannity. Watch here: "http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MtQad4EGbuY
(Taken From: https://www.facebook.com/RandPaul)

Social Security, Medicare, Active Military, Welfare are currently being funded along with the NSA and many other ABC Departments.

As of right now Approximately 85% of the U.S. Government is still being funded.

President Obama and Hary Reid are currently refusing to consider the House's modifications whether on Obamacare or for funding the rest of the Government.

Why is this? Any good and learned American will know that the President is only a Head of State, but currently As like Bush Jr. the President acts like he has (Dictatorial Powers), instead of allowing the true Governing Body (For whatever that's worth), Congress to do their jobs.

Could it be it is another step toward breaking the U.S. Dollar?




 Or could it be something else entirely?

SHUTDOWN: U.S. Prepares for Martial Law with MRAP's




















We will see soon enough.




U.S. Lawmakers: Some Refuse Pay, Some to Donate

Lawmakers Refuse Pay, some to Donate:
For what it's worth...

http://www.libertynews.com/ writes:
During today’s media briefing, White House press secretary Jay Carney was asked whether President Obama would donate his salary during the shutdown to charity, as more than 70 members of Congress are doing.
Carney implied that Obama won’t: “Our position is that the government should be open.”
Carney added that the administration hopes Congress would authorize back pay for furloughed workers.
“It’s the right thing to do,” Carney said.
 http://www.washingtonpost.com/ writes:
Barack Hussein Obama’s net worth is estimated at $12.2 million. He has an annual salary of $400,000, or about $33,000 a month.
As of early afternoon Wednesday, at least 100 lawmakers — 53 Republicans and 47 Democrats — have said that they plan to donate or refuse compensation earned over the course of the impasse. (The count includes a few members who already donate their salary to charity). Here's our tally, but check back for updates, as we will continue updating the list continuously:
Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.): A senior aide said that "Any days that federal workers do not get paid, Sen. Ayotte will donate her salary to a New Hampshire charity."
Rep. Andy Barr (R-Ky.): He said Tuesday on Facebook that "Those who make the laws should have to live by those laws. So as a result of partisan bickering and gridlock, I will be donating my salary for the duration of the government shutdown to local charities until the Senate and President agree to negotiate with the House and we are able to work together to find a solution and reopen the government."
Rep. Ami Bera (D-Calif): He will decline his pay because "Congress should lead by example and put people before politics,” he said in a statement. “If Congress can't do its job and put the American people first, then they certainly shouldn't get paid during a crisis that they are causing. We must stop the finger-pointing, start acting like adults, and make Washington work for the people again.”
Rep. Paul Broun (R-Ga.): The lawmaker announced on Twitter on Tuesday afternoon that he wants his pay withheld "until we are able to resolve the govt #shutdown."
Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio): His office said in a statement that the senator "will not accept his federal salary accrued during the government shutdown and will instead donate it to charity. In 2011, Brown pledged to forego his salary in the event of a government shutdown. Following the 1995 shutdown, Brown donated his salary to various charities in his then-House District." He will donate his salary this time to the Ohio-based Honor Flight Network.
Rep. Gus Bilirakis (R-Fla.): He posted a photo on his Facebook page late Tuesday of him signing a letter asking that his pay be withheld "for as long as the federal government is shut down."
Rep. Vern Buchanan (R-Fla.): "No small business would pay someone who refuses to do their job,” Buchanan said in a statement Tuesday.  “So why should Senators or House members be paid for failing to fulfill one of their most basic responsibilities?  They shouldn’t.”
House Majority Leader Eric I. Cantor (R-Va.): He plans to place his pay in escrow for the duration of the shutdown, according to a spokeswoman.
Rep. Shelley Moore Capito (R-W. Va.): She has asked that her pay be withheld until the shutdown is over. "After the shutdown, she will donate that period of pay to charity," a spokesman said.
Sen. Thomas R. Carper (D-Del.): The senator plans to donate pay earned during the shutdown to a Delaware charity, a spokeswoman said.
Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-Tex.): On his reelection campaign Facebook page, Castro said he would give up his pay in the event of a shutdown. "I hope you will ask Senator Ted Cruz why he refuses to give up his pay during a shutdown he pushed for," he added. (Cruz is among those lawmakers who have said they will refuse their pay.)
Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah): He plans to decline his salary during the shutdown, according to local news reports.
Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.): The senator said Tuesday evening on CNN that he will continue accepting his salary and plans to "spend it and tithe it" as he always has.
Rep. Chris Collins (R-N.Y.): “The American people sent us to Washington to do a job,” he said in a statement. “If we cannot live up to that obligation, we should not be taking a paycheck, a paycheck that is funded by the taxes paid by our fellow hardworking Americans.  If the federal government is shut down Members of Congress should not get paid, and we should not be held to a different standard when it comes to Obamacare, either.”
Sen. Christopher Coons (D-Del.): A spokesman said Tuesday that the senator is "going to send the Treasury a check for the salary he is paid during the shutdown."
Sen. John Cornyn (R-Tex.): A spokeswoman says the senator "will not be paid during the federal shutdown. He donates to charity and does not believe a government shutdown should necessitate charitable contributions, compassion for fellow man should."
Sen. Mike Crapo (R-Idaho): He will donate any pay earned during the shutdown, according to local news reports.
Rep. Steve Daines (R-Mont.): He will donate his salary during the shutdown to the Big Sky Honor Flight, his office said Tuesday.
Rep. Rodney Davis (R-Ill.): This lawmaker from the Land of Lincoln said Tuesday via Twitter that "As long as the government remains shutdown, I will not accept a paycheck - I urge all Members of Congress to join me."
Rep. John Delaney (D-Md.): The freshman lawmaker said via Facebook on Wednesday that he plans to "donate the portions of his Congressional salary received during the government shutdown to charity."
Rep. Suzan DelBene (D-Wash): “For as long as this unnecessary shutdown occurs, hundreds of thousands of public servants will be working without pay," she said in a statement Tuesday. "When sequestration began earlier this year, I returned 8.2% of my salary back to the Treasury, and for the duration of this shutdown, I will return the remainder of my personal salary as well."
Rep. William Enyart (D-Ill.): He said late Tuesday that he is "donating my pay for the duration of this senseless shut-down to a food bank in Southern Illinois and call upon my colleagues in Congress to do the same."
Sen. Mike Enzi (R-Wyo.): The senator first told a Wyoming reporter on Monday that he will return his earnings to the U.S. Treasury.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.): A spokesman says the senator "will donate her salary during the shutdown to the Consortium of Catholic Academies."
Rep. Randy Forbes (R-Va.): He sent a letter Wednesday asking that his pay be withheld for the duration of the shutdown.
Rep. Bill Foster (D-Ill.): He said in a statement Tuesday that “Until Congress ends this irresponsible shutdown, I will donate my pay to charity.”
Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii): She said last Friday that "If a common-sense agreement is not reached, our hard-working troops, law enforcement and other essential personnel will continue to report for duty while receiving no pay, leaving their families at home with nothing but uncertainty. I sincerely hope a government shutdown does not occur, but if no deal is struck by next Tuesday, then Members of Congress should not be exempt from its very real, tough consequences."
Rep. Pete Gallego (D-Tex.): The freshman lawmaker said Monday, "I will be donating my salary to an organization that helps military men and women who are injured while serving their country. They have sacrificed — Congress should heed their example." On Saturday he also introduced the "Shutdown Member of Congress Pay Act," which would — you guessed it — withhold lawmaker pay in the event of a shutdown.
Rep. Phil Gingrey (R-Ga.): He is declining compensation during the shutdown "and will contribute those wages to the U.S. Treasury for debt reduction," a spokeswoman said.
Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.): In a 40-second YouTube video statement, he said "I shouldn't get a congressional salary while other federal employees are denied the ability to go to work. I'm going to take my salary during the government shutdown and donate it to the Wounded Warrior Project."
Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham (D-N.M.): She plans to donate her salary to charities that help "military veterans avoid homelessness," a spokesman said.
Sen. Kay Hagan (D-N.C.): A spokeswoman said Tuesday that she plans to donate the pay she makes over the course of the impasse.
Sen. Orrin G. Hatch (R-Utah): The senator is "going to donate his paycheck to the LDS church," a spokesman said.
Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.): “During the shutdown of the federal government, I will donate my salary to a charity in North Dakota," she said in a statement. "Right now, federal workers across North Dakota and the country who chose to work in public service have been forced to go without pay – including my Senate staff.  It’s only fair that I not receive a salary during that time as well."
Rep. John Hoeven (R-N.D.): The senator plans to donate his shutdown-era pay to charity, a spokesman said.
Rep. Randy Hultgren (R-Ill.): He said he'll revoke his salary "until Congress passes and the President signs an acceptable solution to fund the federal government."
Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.): The wealthiest member of Congress, his staff said he already donates his entire congressional salary to charity.
Rep. Lynn Jenkins (R-Kan.): She posted a picture on her Facebook page of the letter she sent to House officials requesting that her pay be withheld.
Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.): An aide says that the senator "will have his salary withheld until the federal government re-opens."
Rep. Mike Kelly (R-Pa.): The freshman lawmaker formally requested Tuesday that his pay be withheld during the shutdown.
Rep. Derek Kilmer (D-Wash.): On his Facebook page, he said he would give up his pay "for the duration of a government shutdown. I am dead set against a shutdown because it will have serious effects on our economy and because many people rely on services provided by federal agencies. The fact that some in Congress would risk a shutdown in order to score political points demonstrates why Congress is currently held in lower regard than head lice."
Rep. Ron Kind (D-Wis.): He wrote on his Facebook page Tuesday that "As long as furloughed federal workers go without pay, I will not take my own salary."
Sen. Angus King (I-Maine): The freshman senator has decided to place his earnings in an escrow account "and will only accept it if federal employees who work during the shutdown are also ultimately compensated for their work," a spokesman said. "In the event they are not, Senator King intends to donate his pay to charities in Maine."
Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.): He announced Tuesday that "he has elected to have his pay withheld until the federal government reopens," a spokesman said.
