Earmarks, Spending, and a Dysfunctional Congress

by | May 23, 2021 |

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

A few short years ago, stung by voter rebuke on congressional overspending on nonsense stuff through an unappropriated, i.e., free money scheme for congressmen called “Earmarks,” Congress dropped the program for a while so as not to adversely impact individual members re-election chances. Oh, woe! Voters, after all, have short memories, and as quickly voter outrage faded, once again, Congress took up the nefarious plot, calling it “Congressionally Directed Spending,” aka Earmarks! How about that? Those ‘Wiley rascals’ can do just about anything they want; just disguise it for the short memory folks who don’t really care all that much.

Earmarks were long a Democrat scheme to dispense funds to members of Congress of both parties, to achieve bipartisanship in passing laws and spending bills. It eventually alarmed the conservative voter base, who were paying attention. Remember the bridge to nowhere in Alaska? And both parties took advantage of it, so when push came to shove, Democrats could claim it was all bipartisan. Everyone loved it. But, remember, Democrats will always “Deny everything, admit nothing and blame somebody else.”

The Democrats are still trying to fool us. Now, with both Congress and the presidency barely in their hands, and time running short for them, they have enacted a fast run Ponzi scheme using American taxpayer funds creating massive phony spending programs.

All under the guise of it being for the family, like payroll protection plans, protecting Americans from the horrors of a Chinese Virus which, by the way, gave them the excuse to collapse our economy through fear and then entrapped our citizens in the “Tar Baby” goo of good intentions by offering free economic relief entitlements, increased spending on education, voter registration schemes, enfranchising illegal immigration by supplying illegals with free funds⏤all which you paid for with taxes,

The most egregious spending of all is the Green New Deal nonsense supposedly to capture free sun and wind energy. Anybody who still believes our annual weather is some form of heinous, man-made climate disaster looming on the horizon, are the same damn fools who believe masks will stop viruses, and term limits can’t solve the problems of out-of-control political leadership. Marxism certainly isn’t the answer; only Capitalism is.

What we don’t see is that almost all the trillions of dollars demanded by the Progressives and enacted by the Democrats under Joe Biden go to bankrupt Blue cities and states, so they aren’t bankrupt anymore. The Blue cities are all corrupt and beholden to Leftist-run unions, especially the Teachers Unions who, through their tax-re-filled bank accounts, make huge donations back into the Democrats’ pot to continue the socialization of America. Criminally, that’s money laundering at its best.

Where is this excess federally confiscated tax money supposed to go? How about $7.7 million for the revival of a streetcar line in Tampa, Florida. Does Kodiak, Alaska really need an $18.6 million fire station; or $40 million for museum projects in Blue Cities and States? Think about it. Earmarks are not their money to give away, is it? 

We don’t have any excess federally confiscated tax money; we have IOUs! The treasury is busted. We don’t have enough gold, silver, platinum, or anything else to sustain our economy; just pretend money, cunningly disguised with green ink on paper and taken on face value as spendable and having value. Value is whatever the government intends it to be, and the greatest tax on our economy and personal wealth is inflation.

Marxism, in whatever guise it comes, cannot exist with an armed and prosperous middle class. With the Marxist Democrat party still in control, America will be inevitably doomed to irrelevance, and with it, the world. They gotta go! 

Remember, freedom is the goal; the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ’em!

George McClellan

George G. McClellan, a California native, was a Regular Army veteran and served a post-war Korea tour. His post-army professional career covered 43 years in law enforcement, including the California Highway Patrol and the US Naval Investigative Service (NCIS). With the latter, he became a world traveler visiting and working in many countries from the Philippine Islands to the United Kingdom, Asia, the Middle-East, Bosnia, Europe, Russia, and India. He retired from the NIS at Naval Air Station, Atlanta, Ga., and has remained in the north Georgia area since 1990 as a co-owner of a Security Consulting company. He earned a Certified Protectional Professional (CPP) certification from the American Society for Industrial Security and a Fraud Examiner Certification (CFE).

He has published a historical biography on a namesake, a John Jacob Astor Fur Company member who explored a route west and back, after Lewis and Clark. Early American history, Celtic influence on America, and conservative politics remain his greatest interests. He is also a bagpiper since 1975. He and his wife, since 1965, now resides in Gilmer County, Ga.

The Reason the Patriot Act No Longer Works

The Reason the Patriot Act No Longer Works

We must realize the power of arrest now basically lies in Marxist hands, and they will use it. Already they have perverted the definition of who is and who is not a “terrorist.” It’s no longer the foreign Islamic Jihadists who killed over 3000 Americans in a single day, who are the terrorist!” To suggest is to be labeled Islamaphobic, but Oath Keepers, former American soldiers, and policemen still willing to keep the oaths they took to Protect and Defend the…

To Secede, or Not To Secede, That is the Question for Oregon and Idaho

To Secede, or Not To Secede, That is the Question for Oregon and Idaho

The Oregon vote shows both the desire of the people to change and their willingness to fight for their land. Is that enough? As of the writing, I don’t know how the legislature of Oregon will respond to this vote. Are the legislators willing to trap people in an unhappy situation to further their political goals? We’ve seen that before in world history, and it doesn’t end well.

John Kerry is a Consequential Internal Security Threat to America

John Kerry is a Consequential Internal Security Threat to America

John Kerry co-chaired the 2020 presidential campaign Biden-Sanders unity climate change task force with the socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., which provided the framework for a “Green New Deal,” since repackaged as the Democrat “infrastructure” plan. Kerry has a habit of being in the center of many of the worst policies that pose major security risks for America…

Biden, G7 & the China Conundrum

Biden, G7 & the China Conundrum

The only way to confront the Chinese colossus is by combining the populations, economic and military powers of the USA, Europe, Russia, and India. Excluding Biden’s mental lapses and gaffes, the G7 leaders had a good time amongst themselves at enormous taxpayers’ expenses and returned home, not only empty-handed but empty-minded for completely ignoring all the following items…

5 Tools That Will Help You Tame Anxiety

Emotions are actually intelligent indicators meant to get your attention and provide energy and information. Anxiety as an emotional symptom is a sign you are not present. Ultimately, you can retrain your mind with consistent self-care tools and by prioritizing yourself to take the time to reset when your emotions are getting overly amped up…

COVID-19 Vaccines Not Safe for Human Use on Either Side of the Atlantic

COVID-19 Vaccines Not Safe for Human Use on Either Side of the Atlantic

Since the majority of the deaths occur within a few days of the vaccine administration, if the vaccine did not directly “cause” the death, it was undoubtedly in the causal pathway of these temporally related fatalities. Common narratives include vaccine-induced fatal heart attacks, strokes, blood clots, and blood disorders. 5,888 Americans have died and confirmed by the CDC, and possibly tens of thousands not reported or still backlogged at the CDC…

Sadly, Biden Was the Laugh of the G7 Party

Sadly, Biden Was the Laugh of the G7 Party

The President’s behavior throughout the G7 meeting and the meeting with Putin that followed did nothing to alleviate the suspicions that many Americans have that the President’s cognitive ability is fading rapidly. This, of course, leads to another question: Is Joe Biden really able to carry out his duties as President of the United States and leader of the free world?

#BidenBlunders Are Top Greatest US Threats – Not White Supremacists or Global Warming

How does terminating American petroleum and pipelines — while at the same time placating Putin’s — benefit all those drowning Arctic polar bears Al Gore warned us about? I’m betting that lots of recently unemployed coal miners and oil patch roughnecks are among a great many who are questioning these same contradictions regarding America’s truly urgent problems…

Coincidence or Conspiracy to Take Down a Nation

Coincidence or Conspiracy to Take Down a Nation

Now with a clearer vision of the past year and a half, could this nightmare we’ve been living have all been simply happenstance? Or is there something more sinister behind it? When we consider some parallels between the CCP-virus, the now-obvious hanky-panky that surrounded our Nov. 3rd elections, and the false flags unfolding around the January 6th Capitol event, we could almost have a conspiracy!
