In Wisconsin efforts to recall Governor Walker failed after 18 months of angry futility and needless public expense inflicted on the Badger state by a self-absorbed liberal old guard too steeped in their socialist ideology to notice it had petrified.
They were defeated by an organic coalition made up of Tea Partiers, Paulians, renegade GOP, constitutionalists, conservatives, libertarians, capitalists, reformers, patriots, homeschoolers, gunners, sportsmen, free-traders, taxpayers, pro-lifers, religious advocates, and values-voters. The GOP alone had no chance.
The efforts that Walker has made to stop spending are an example of what Congress has to do to survive. But the House of Representatives spending continued with the passing of HR 5743 Intelligence Authorization. This would provide funding for the 16 intelligence agencies. The funding of agencies such as the CIA and National Security Agency are at a level above President Obama's request of $71.8 billion, according to Intelligence committee chairman Mike Rogers, R-MI. The Senate has not yet moved on its authorization bill, but action is expected at the committee level sometime this summer.
The spending continued with the passing of HR 5854 Military Construction-Veterans Affairs Appropriations. This bill provides $71.7 billion in discretionary funds, including $60.6 billion for the VA and $10.6 billion for base construction and military family housing. A provision forbidding agencies from using project labor agreements for construction projects was removed from the bill by an amendment from Michael G. Grimm, R-N.Y. President Obama threatened to veto the bill because the House GOP has set total 2013 appropriations levels below what had been agreed to in last year's debt-ceiling standoff. Because the House kept funding levels in this bill constant with last year, deeper cuts will be necessary in other appropriations bills, which the administration views as unacceptable.
Finally, it was on June 5, 1933, A Historic Day for America's Economic Collapse the United States Congress and President Franklin Delano Roosevelt unconstitutionally abrogated the use of gold for the payment of public and private debts while simultaneously bailing out the Federal Reserve and forever enslaving the American people to its inflationary economic policy.
Ben Bernanke and the Fed must be audited immediately. This reckless spending and printing of soon to be extinct American dollars must cease.
