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.

If we choose to ignore the evidence, or to merely grumble about his performance, then Biden and his cohorts will proceed unhindered with their agenda. We need to take a close look at his exploits and see what patterns are formed. Then, let’s take it a step further and ask who might be coaching Joe. Knowing the enemy is the first step toward defeating that enemy…

America’s Uniqueness Starts and Ends with the US Constitution

America’s Uniqueness Starts and Ends with the US Constitution

We the People, after creating this Frankenstein monster of a government and setting it loose on an unsuspecting world, now cower in fear of our creation, unwilling to stand and defend even our own selves against it. Why did the framers of this union create this Constitution the way they did? What was the purpose that We the People had in mind when we ordained and established it?

What to Expect if the Tyranny in Australia Hits Home

Since August, Australians cannot go out of their homes for longer than an hour to socialize or shop.

Covid-19, Social Standing, and the New World Order

A government that can force people to take medical treatments against their wishes can do whatever it wants, and the fact that Joe Biden’s order is unconstitutional will not stop tens of millions of Americans from being forced to get vaccinated against their will, in order to continue supporting their families. By the time the Supreme Court shoots this order down (assuming they do), the damage will already be done…

COVID Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough, #3

We have had no side effects that we are aware of from the vaccine. Does this mean we are free from future side-effects? Should we forego any boosters? Did the vaccine destroy our natural immunity?

The Unholy Alliance Between Big Pharma’s Vaccines and Drugs and the FDA

The Unholy Alliance Between Big Pharma’s Vaccines and Drugs and the FDA

One MD remarked on the day of the sham approval, Do they actually think that with a stroke of the pen—like a magic wand—“approval” suddenly occurs? Nothing the FDA, pharma, or otherwise says or do is a substitute for 10-12 years of research and development of a biologic. But, sadly, most of the world will believe so. The FDA increasingly fast-tracks expensive drugs and vaccines with significant side effects and unproven health benefits. According to FDA’s own employees, drug company payments bias regulators, with “an inclination toward approval.”
