Vibrations and Soul Expression

By Kevin J. Todeschi and Henry Reed, PhD

Science begins to confirm Edgar Cayce’s teaching that thoughts create vibrations that can alter the physical world.



When energy combines with patterns of thought, some new unique form of creation takes place.

There’s a perfect example from Scripture of how a person’s vibration can affect someone else. In Mark 5:24-34 is the story of a woman who suffered for 12 years with a physical ailment, spending much time and all her resources trying to get well.

She had heard about the teachings of Jesus and as a last resort she decided to find him. She simply touched the hem of his robe and she became well.
How was that possible? Because the garment He wore had picked up His energy, and when the woman touched the robe, the vibrations of that energy passed into her and effected a healing.
It’s important to realize that it’s not just the garment of someone like Jesus that picks up energy. It’s every piece of clothing we wear; it’s all of our surroundings; it’s every strand of hair on our heads; it’s every cell in our body.

And these vibrations originate not only from our current attitudes and emotions, but also from the history of the soul’s experiences.
Research in several laboratories has confirmed that it is possible to “imprint” material with thoughts or intentions so that the material shows a physical effect of such imprinting.

Blessing water with healing intent, for example, changes the crystalline structure of the water.

While scientific theory explaining the process lags behind, evidence accumulates concerning its reality.

It is common to hear of “quantum” theories, as scientists attempt to understand the role of consciousness in the relationship between energy and matter.
The Edgar Cayce material offers a perspective on this question – that mental patterns precipitate energy into material forms.

When energy combines with patterns of thought, some new unique form of creation takes place.

No matter how this process will be ultimately understood, it is clear that material objects have a “memory” of the information contained in vibrational influences.

The Dual Nature of Electron and the Observer Effect on Matter


The very act of observing or measuring which slit it went through meant it only went through one, not both. The electron decided to act differently as if it were aware it was being watched. The observer actually collapsed the wave function simply by observing it (Kang).

It has been suggested that one’s thoughts are intangible, wave-like phenomenon, just like the electron; and as such, it may be possible to observe one’s thoughts, thus collapsing them into reality (Rosenblum). If this the case, it is safe to conclude that one is truly responsible for creating one’s reality, sometimes, in a not-so-obvious way.

Thoughts are Things


Another fundamental Cayce teaching is: “Thoughts are things, and as their currents run they become miracles or crimes in the experiences of individual life.”

For the deeply attuned Cayce, thoughts were as real as actions. In fact, during his readings from the Book of Life, he had to strain to determine whether the person he was reading for had actually done something or had just thought about doing it! “Thoughts are things; just as the Mind is as concrete as a post or tree,” and the Akashic Record, the Book of Life, records them as such.

This is a hard one to hear. The first time I read it, it pained me to think how many times my thoughts had done harm to another and placed a negative influence in the Collective Mind. Watching our thoughts is important.

A long time ago, I read a Cayce reading which told the tale of an ancient, powerful woman whose thoughts were equally powerful.

When she realized the harm she had caused others with her thoughts, she was so distraught, she laid down and willed herself to die.

    Melia and Goodwin give us a delicate paean to a subtler age on The Lost Art of Wooing, the followup to their highly successful Last of Old England.

    Elizabethan England produced some of the most beautiful love songs ever written, and Melia’s finespun soprano makes them sound especially lovely, as does the trio’s preference for a natural, straightforward recording style.

    Together, they effortlessly rekindle a culture that was in love with love…one in which serenades were so common that city ordinances had to be passed banning singing beneath windows.

    With the help of friends, computers, and his old recordings, Martino made a recovery, and learned to play the guitar again.

    All children to be registered in national biometric records

    Identity-tracking scheme assembled under radar for ‘border pass’ program

    Posted: February 14, 2011

    By Jerome R. Corsi



    Below the radar of public opinion, Mexico has started to assemble the type of biometric national identity database that could be used to document names for a North American Trusted Traveler border pass card, a plan already being developed by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security for Mexican citizens.

    It apparently would be similar to the program that has become commonplace in the European Union to allow free transit for EU citizens to move, live and work wherever they choose within the EU, disregarding nation-of-origin and national border restrictions.


    Critics in Mexico have charged that the Mexican effort to enroll school children in a national biometric personal identity database involves the early implementation of an incremental “new world order” plan designed to fit into initiatives designed under the Security and Prosperity Partnership to evolve the North American Free Trade Agreement into a continental or regional North American Union governmental structure.

    Obama’s budget spikes federal debt

    Will reach more than 100% of GDP for 1st time since World War II

    Posted: February 14, 2011

    By Jerome R. Corsi


    Looking closely, experts soon discovered Obama’s 2012 budget was so filled with hidden tax hikes that it amounted not to a $1.1 trillion tax cut over the next 10 years, but a 10-year $1.5 trillion tax hike.

    The Obama budget assumes the Bush tax cuts will expire.

    It envisions

    raising the top marginal income tax rate from 35 percent to 39.6 percent,

    raising the capital gains and dividends rate from 15 percent to 20 percent, and

    raising the estate tax from 35 percent to 45 percent,

    while lowering the estate tax exemption from $5 million for an individual to $3.5 million.

    Additional new taxes are imposed on banks, international corporations, life insurance companies, energy taxes (or expirations of tax exemptions).

    There are even new taxes on airline travelers by raising the “passenger facility charge” on an airline ticket to a maximum of $7 per flight from $4.50 per flight.

    House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan On Cuts and the Pledge To America



    HH: And so that point is not my point. That point is the point of people listening to the radio show and blogging and talking about this.

    They want you guys to go much, much, much deeper this year. The question is will you?

    PR: So we…wait until you see our budget. Look, this is just the first bite at the apple. This is just one week.

    Wait until you see what we do in our budget, which we’re going to be talking about trillions of dollars in savings, not just tens of billions of dollars in savings.

    HH: But you’ve got leverage right now. You’ve got the continuing resolution that must be passed…

    PR: And we have a debt ceiling which we want to leverage more from.

    HH: And so why not now? If not now, when, because that budget that came in today is a joke. It’s terrible.

    PR: That’s what I thought you wanted to talk about.

    HH: I do. I do want to get to that.

    PR: So if you take a look at where we’re headed, look, what matters to me, Hugh, is obviously doing what we said we would do.

    And I would strenuously say we are doing what we said we would do. I always said I was bringing spending down to this $1,028 [billion] level.

    And we were going to do it annualized. Now, we’re doing it for the full year.

    But more importantly, what choice will the country be given at the end of all of this, at the end of this term in Congress?

    Do they want what the President showed us he wants today, more borrowing, more spending, more taxing, a cradle to grave welfare state, and an acceleration toward a debt crisis?

    He’s given us a $1.6 trillion dollar tax increase today, $8.7 trillion in new spending, $13 trillion dollars thrown on top of the national debt, and zero spending discipline.

    We owe the country a choice of a different future.

    And so to me, what matters more is not the week to week, but at the end of the day, have we given our constituents, the country, a choice of

    a limited government, economic freedom, future of where we reclaim the American idea,

    or the Obama path, which he has very well articulated today, is a Europeanization of our economy, is stagnation, is borrowing, spending and taxing?

    House GOP Whip Kevin McCarthy on the Pledge, and current state of cutting spending


    HH: No, I just want to get to credibility so we get support for you guys in 2012 when the entitlements get on the floor.

    KM: All right, well let’s walk back the credibility and support what we said we would do in the Pledge. First of all, we said we’d cut our own budgets.

    We’ve done that.

    Second off, we said we’d open up the floor. We have, and this is a spending bill. We’ve opened up the floor.

    Third thing that we said we would do, because they went into a C.R., which means a continuing resolution, where you’ve already taken five months away, only seven months, if you wanted to be technical about it and say $58 billion would equal the $100 billion, we said no to that.

    And we even went further. So you will find on the floor that we will even go further. We already voted off the floor repealing Obamacare.

    In the first four weeks in the 111th Congress, when the Democrats controlled Congress, they increased spending by $686 billion.

    In the first four weeks that Republicans have controlled Congress in the 112th, we have cut $650 billion before this week has even started.

    HH: Kevin McCarthy, though, that is great. Wonderful. That’s not what people want to hear.

    They want to hear that you guys will go to the wall on the continuing resolution, shut the government down if necessary, to make sure that we’re back to pre-bailout, pre-stimulus levels, which means 2008 real dollars.

    Will you guys do that?

    KM: You will find we will be back to pre-stimulus, pre-bailout, and we will go further.

    We will put this country on the right path that we can pay down this debt.

    Look, what the President proposed today, you’d be better off doing nothing.

    HH: Agreed.

    KM: It’s going to increase taxes, one, the top rate, also capital gains rate up to 44%, because you’ve got the health care tax in there as well.

    He proposes that in there, and says he’s only cutting so much. He wants to freeze discretionary spending.

    It is a new day in Washington when we’re having a debate on how far we can cut.

    HH: Well, I’ve heard that…

    KM: That is healthy, and that is good.

    HH: And if necessary, in 30 seconds, you’ll shut the government down if necessary to get there, Kevin McCarthy?

    KM: Look, I think the best thing to do is not to shut the government down, but actually create jobs.

    And you do that by cutting spending and growing this economy.

    House Republican Conference Chairman, Jeb Hensarling, on the Pledge and budget cuts



    HH: Okay, let me ask you about some specifics. Again, I’ve heard the same thing.

    I don’t think it works, but you know, it’s up to the people to decide, not me.

    Is NPR going to be zeroed out in the C.R. that comes out of the House?

    JH: Oh, Hugh, I don’t have that in front of me. I think so. There’s 150 program terminations.

    I don’t have them all in front of me as we speak, but I think NPR is there.

    And there is no reason whatsoever that any taxpayer should be funding NPR, not at a time when we’re borrowing forty cents on the dollar, a lot of it from the Chinese, and sending the bill to our children and grandchildren.

    HH: What about the National Endowments for the Arts and the Humanities?

    Under the same logic, if we are really in a fiscal crisis, wouldn’t we be shuttering all of these programs immediately?

    JH: I believe so, but unfortunately, Hugh, I should have done this, but I don’t have the list of 150 program terminations in front of me.

    I can get them to you, not in time for us to finish this interview, but I’ll get them for you, so you can see the 150 program terminations.

    HH: All right, let’s go back to the big issue. And I’ve heard everyone say we’re not interested in shutting the government down.

    And I don’t think anyone is.

    But if it comes to that, are you guys prepared to take the media heat that comes with standing on the necessity of turning the ship around, and not caving when it comes to the short strokes in the next two weeks?

    JH: Oh, all I can say is there’ll be a High Noon moment, and I believe we’re going to end up being the Gary Cooper and not the other guys.

    You’re right.

    Nobody wants to shut down the government, but we know that the classic definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting a different result.

    And as we’ve said before, you know, if the President wants any help in paying his bills, he’s going to have to start cutting up the credit cards.

    And there’s going to have to be an agreement between the Senate, between the White House, and between the House in putting our fiscal house in order, and seeing major spending reductions and major spending reforms, particularly putting caps on these expenditures.

    I mean, this is a legitimate crisis.

    Shock poll: ‘Birthers’ rule

    Astonishing number of citizens don’t believe president’s story

    Posted: February 15, 2011



    The newest poll from Public Policy Polling revealed

    51 percent of 400 Republican primary voters disbelieve Obama’s claims to be eligible constitutionally to hold the office of president and

    another 21 percent said they were not sure.


    72% of likely Repub primary voters disbelieve or not sure?

    One has to ask oneself WHY are the usual suspects putting forth these birther stories NOW?

    It goes without saying that they believe that birthers are by definition either racists or nutters.

    But they also believe these stories play in their favor.

    Once upon a time that may have held true, but I’m beginning to have my doubts.

    Americans are reasonable people, and it is just not reasonable that, to this day, we’ve still not seen Obama’s long-form.

    Now, there has to be a reason for that.

    But let me re-emphasize, whatever the reason, it doesn’t mean Obama not born in Hawaii.

    It does not mean Obama ineligible.

    What is hidden may be hidden simply to save Obama embarrassment.

    Guanajuato Begins Issuing Children’s Identity Documents

    Tuesday, February 8, 2011


    León, Guanajuato.

    Earlier today, in the state of Guanajuato, Federal Government began issuing the Personal Identity Document for minors, a form of official identification that will fully identify minors in the eyes of any Mexican authority.

    The children’s identity document is a free, official document with biometric elements, making it impossible to falsify, which also identifies the child’s parents or tutors, guaranteeing security and legal and juridical identity for those under 18.

    In order to issue the document, the Interior Secretariat, in conjunction with the governments of all the states, is visiting all the elementary schools in the country to obtain the necessary information.

    Through these actions, Federal Government confirms its commitment to fully guaranteeing the entire population’s right to identity and to obtain safe, swift access to the various procedures and services provided by the Mexican government.

    Americans’ questions about Obama eligibility surge

    Coming book rockets up Amazon rankings on Drudge Report posting

    Posted: February 16, 2011



    Americans’ questions about the issue of Barack Obama’s eligibility surged today after the image of a still-coming book, “Where’s the Birth Certificate?: The Case that Barack Obama is not Eligible to be President,” was posted on the Drudge Report.

    The image, without even a link to the book, which is available for purchase in the WND SuperStore now although it will not ship until its May 17 release date, pushed it up the Amazon.com rankings from the obscure levels of unpublished works to the 500s by the middle of the day.

    Drudge Report posted the image to accompany a Roll Call story on a new poll revealing that a majority of the members of the GOP “doubt” Obama’s birthplace story.


    Questions about Obama’s eligibility to be president have been exacerbated by his refusal to answer questions and release ordinary background documentation and his extraordinary legal maneuvers to keep his background hidden.

    The Constitution requires a president to be a “natural-born citizen,” which is not the same as a “citizen.”

    Fritz Wenzel of Wenzel Strategies has warned, “Simply put, this question about Obama’s legitimacy as president is undermining everything he does in the minds of millions of Americans.”


    What is hidden may be hidden simply to save Obama embarrassment.

    But opposition to birther bills in various state legislatures around the country can only mean one thing — whatever it is that is hidden must remain hidden at all costs.

    How can you justify NOT holding Obama to the same standard the rest of us must meet?!

    For example, Arizona required my long-form from California before they granted me a teaching certificate.

    This issue isn’t going away because common-sense Americans just can’t understand why all the fuss. Show us the long-form, for crying out loud!

    Oh yeah, we’ve been told said certificate doesn’t exist, or at least Hawaii not in possession.

    Court rejects ‘birther’ challenge by former SBC officer

    Monday, February 07, 2011


    The appeals court ruled that it is the role of political parties and Congress — not elected officials — to determine the eligibility of a presidential candidate.

    In his appeal, attorney Gary Kreep of the United States Justice Foundation argued that while the U.S. Constitution lays out eligibility requirements for the president there are no federal laws dealing with who is to make determination of eligibility.

    California law, Kreep argued, requires the secretary of state to verify candidates for every elected office except president.

    The state Supreme Court rejected the appeal without comment. Kreep said he plans to appeal the case to the U.S. Supreme Court.

    Drake, Keyes and Robinson are also plaintiffs in a similar complaint in federal courts now pending before the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

    “who is to make determination of eligibility?”

    The true Barack Obama: Pedestrian political hack by Jerome Corsi

    Posted: February 17, 2011



    But, as “Deconstructing Obama” gains an audience, the Obama enablers will dedicate themselves to trashing the book.

    Inevitably, Obama hard-liners will attempt to classify Cashill and his book as “racist,” to make it politically inappropriate for reviewers to praise it – again, in the hope of minimizing the book’s audience.

    Despite these efforts to block Cashill’s message, readers awakened to the truth that Obama is a lie created by leftist propagandists to advance their socialist agenda will press the book forward to gain the widespread attention “Deconstructing Obama” deserves.

    “Had Obama’s teleprompter malfunctioned at the 2004 convention, he would not be president,” Cashill astutely observes, acknowledging that Obama absent his Ayers-Axelrod-Plouffe muses is at best pedestrian.

    Cashill notes that Ayers, a typical postmodern, not only has disregard for the United States of America, he has disregard for the truth.

    “The postmodern posturing leads to the frequent manipulation of dates and numbers to score political points, a sleight of hand that Ayers justifies in ‘Fugitive Days’: ‘I’ve come to see, in any case, that fiction does a better job with the truth in almost every instance,'” Cashill writes on page 93.

    As Cashill argues convincingly, beyond the Obama myth-making there is a disappointing Obama reality.


    A suggestion for Karl Rove and other Republican purists — since you are convinced the lame stream media is harping on these “birther” stories in an effort to convince Independents that it’s dangerous to vote for Republican candidates — DON’T go on Fox News and give air time to those nefarious lefties.

    Hawaii to keep Obama ‘birth certificate’ secret

    Democrats kill plan to sell access for $100

    Posted: February 18, 2011

    By Jerome R. Corsi



    The controversy intensified when radio personality Mike Evans, a long-time Hawaii resident and a personal friend of Abercrombie for decades, gave a series of radio interviews on Jan. 20, in which he explained that

    Abercrombie gave up his search for Obama nativity records because the governor was unable to find in Hawaii’s vital records Obama’s long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate.

    “Although Abercrombie is an Obama lover, he’s the first to say he’s concerned this is really going to be an issue during the re-election,” Evans said on the 92 KQRS Morning Show in Minneapolis.

    On air, Evans recounted a discussion he had with Abercrombie in which the governor made clear he had to abandon his search for Obama’s birth records because the records Abercrombie expected to find in the Hawaii Department of Health vault were not there..

    “Abercrombie was probably more shocked than anybody,” Evans said, explaining that Abercrombie ended his search after he was unable to find any Hawaii official nativity documents for Obama that named a Hawaiian hospital where Obama was born or identified a Hawaiian physician who attended Obama’s birth.

    “Neil promised me that when he became governor, he was going to cut through all the red tape, he was going to get Obama’s birth certificate once and for all and end this stupid controversy that he was not born in the United States,” Evans said.

    “Yesterday, talking to Neil’s office, Neil says that he’s searched everywhere using his powers as governor at the Kapi’olani Women’s and Childrens’ Hospital and Queens Hospital, the only places where kids were born in Hawaii back when Barack was born,”

    Evans continued,

    “and there is no Barack Obama birth certificate in Hawaii – absolutely no proof at all that he was born in Hawaii.”

    Evans subsequently retracted his claim, saying that he misspoke when he suggested he had actually spoken to the governor about Abercrombie’s inability to find Obama’s long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate.

    So far, the only birth document available on Obama is a Hawaii Certification of Live Birth that first appeared on the Internet during the 2008 presidential campaign when posted by two supposedly independent websites that turned out to display a strong partisan bias for Obama –

    Snopes.com that released the COLB in June 2008 and

    FactCheck.org that published photographs of the document in August 2008.

    Are you better off after 2 years of Obama?

    On numerous economic measures, American public fares poorly since election

    Posted: February 20, 2011



    With a higher unemployment rate, more people on food stamps and soaring U.S. debt, are Americans better off after two years of Barack Obama?

    That’s the question Jerome Corsi’s Red Alert is asking.

    A wildly popular e-mail has been circulating on the Internet with the following table, making clear that on a wide variety of economic measures the American public has done poorly during the first two years of the Obama presidency:

    According to the chart:

    Gasoline today is $3.10 a gallon, but it was $1.83 a gallon in January 2009, when Obama took office as president, a 69.6 percent increase.

    Gold has also increased 60 percent, going from $853/ounce in 2009 to almost $1,370/ounce today.

    The number of Americans on food stamps has increased from 32 million in 2009 to 43 million today, a 35 percent increase.

    HouseBudgetCommittee | February 20, 2011

    Earlier today, Rep. Paul Ryan joined CBS’ Face the Nation to discuss House Republicans’ continued efforts to cut government spending and help spur economic growth and job creation.

    Speaking from his hometown of Janesville, Wisconsin, Ryan addressed the need for honest leadership at all levels of government, putting an end to empty promises and fiscal recklessness:

    “These governors are telling people the truth; we need to do the same thing in Washington… We have to tell the truth and fix these problems.”

    Ryan, Chairman of the House Budget Committee, affirmed the House Republicans’ commitment to lead where the President failed

    with a spring budget that will address the drivers of the debt and chart a path to prosperity.

    On Spending Cuts:

    “We’re not looking at rubber stamping these really high, elevated spending levels.

    Congress increased spending by 24% on domestic discretionary programs two years ago – 84% when you include the stimulus, and now they want to keep that status quo locked in place.

    We want real spending cuts. We don’t want to accept these extremely high levels of spending.”

    On Wisconsin:

    “All levels of government have been making empty promises.

    These governors are telling people the truth; we need to do the same thing in Washington.

    We can’t keep borrowing, we can’t keep spending and making empty promises to people. We have to tell the truth and fix these problems.

    The sooner we act, the better off everybody is going to be.”

    On Democrats’ Efforts to Cling to Failed Spending Spree:

    “This is the same economic methodology that was used to say that if we passed the stimulus bill we would keep unemployment from hitting 8%.

    Well it went up to about 10%. These high deficits today mean high tax increases and interest rate increases tomorrow.

    High deficits, uncontrolled debt mean job creation goes away today.

    If you actually get this deficit and debt under control, you can help jobs today.

    Our goal is to cut spending and grow the economy, and get prosperity in a lasting way back in place in America.

    Taxing, borrowing, and spending didn’t work and it won’t work.”

    On the President’s Disappointing Budget:

    “Presidents are elected to lead. This President has punted on these issues.

    He seems to be complicit in this out of control debt because that is what his budget produces.

    We are going to offer the country a different vision:

    one of a debt-free nation, one of economic growth and prosperity today by having government live within its means, by getting these programs under control.”

    Voices of Moderation face Irrational Rants

    Feb. 18, 2011

    Arizona Republic Editorial rises to the defense of Dr. Jasser and Muslim moderates after recent attacks.



    Writing on the conservative website
    American Thinker, former newspaper
    publisher Pamela Geller contends Jasser
    “cannot educate about the threat (of radical
    Islam), because he obfuscates the truth and
    has invented the Islam he follows.”
    Commentators at other sites like Frontpage
    Magazine logged similar views.

    They appear to be animated by the fact that
    Jasser was invited to appear at Capitol Hill
    hearings on Islamic radicalization. They also
    appear to believe that moderate voices
    cannot speak for Islam because Islam itself,
    in their view, is immoderate.

    Jasser himself destroys Geller’s error-laced
    tirade in a Feb. 13 posting on American
    Thinker. It’s worth reading.

    The spectacle must be of great comfort to
    the Taliban and the Iranian mullahs:

    Witnessing their fiercest American critics
    rejecting their fiercest Muslim critics as
    somehow being inauthentic.

    (You’re wrong on this one, Pamela.)

    The Two Big Battles



    The political class is now busy debating

    –see the New York Times this morning–

    whether the GOP is “overreaching,”

    another display of epic cluelessness about the situation in a country with near double-digit unemployment and where some regions are facing double-the-national-average in joblessness.

    The key difference between 1995 and 2011 is that people know we are broker and

    they know the special interests are asking for us to borrow billions and billions more

    so they don’t have to experience the austerity the rest of the country has already endured three years.

    The Republicans are doing the right things –the things they campaigned on– in D.C. and across the new House CR.

    If they don’t defend them now, when will they ever do so?

    Obama’s centrist shift evaporates

    Feb 18, 2011



    But just as entitlements are the root problems of the federal budget, at the state level it’s the fat pension and healthcare benefits

    — unfunded to the tune of $3.5 trillion —

    awarded to government unions by the politicians they elected.

    The result is the Battle of Madison as Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin tries to get a handle on a budget shortfall of $3.6 billion, as well as longer-term fiscal problems.

    He probably didn’t expect an encouraging word for the White House, and he was not disappointed.

    As Obama told a Milwaukee television reporter:

    “Some of what I’ve heard coming out of Wisconsin, where they’re just making it harder for public employees to collectively bargain generally, seems like more of an assault on unions.”

    Entitlements and government unions are both products of the heyday of American liberalism from the 1930s through the 1970s.

    Just like when Mikhail Gorbachev ascended to power in the old Soviet Union with the goal of modernizing and preserving that system,

    Obama hopes to do the same with America’s union-backed welfare state by making it — and funding it — more like Europe’s.

    If Scott Walker in Wisconsin and Chris Christie of New Jersey are successful at the state level and Rep. Paul Ryan at the national, Obama may instead preside over its collapse.

    GOP Senate hopeful looking at attack from right over immigration reform


    But one major break between Flake and the right came over “Don’t ask, don’t tell.”

    Flake was one of just 15 House Republican who voted in favor of the repeal of the military’s controversial policy on homosexuals, and said Tuesday that it is not a vote he regrets.

    “Arizona voters have a bit of a libertarian streak, an independent streak,” Flake said.

    “I think they appreciate a politician who isn’t lockstep in any one way.”

    Flake, a staunch fiscal conservative and anti-earmarker, already has the backing of the Club for Growth, which has promised to fight tooth and nail against any GOP primary challenge.

    The Tea Party group FreedomWorks also endorsed Flake on Monday.

    McCain told The Hill on Tuesday that he hasn’t yet made an endorsement in the race, though Flake said that the two have spoken and that he would welcome McCain’s support.

    “I’m not endorsing anyone yet,” McCain said, noting that he has great respect and admiration for Flake.

    The two have worked closely together on efforts to ban earmarks.

    McCain did not commit to endorsing anyone before the primary. “I don’t know,” he said. “It depends. I don’t even know who all is running yet.”

    House Republicans fulfilled our pledge to America by passing a funding bill that will cut spending by more than $100 billion over the next seven months.

    Barrasso: “Shovel Ready Stimulus” Shoveled More Debt onto Americans

    February 17, 2011


    “Instead of creating new jobs with ‘shovel ready projects,’ President Obama’s failed ‘stimulus’ shoveled billions of dollars of more debt on the backs of hard working Americans.

    On Monday, the President had an opportunity to introduce a serious budget that makes Washington more effective and efficient.

    Unfortunately, he doubled down on more unnecessary spending that will waste billions of taxpayer dollars on projects that haven’t been able to create jobs from ‘stimulus’ funding two years ago.

    One of his signature initiatives, a high speed rail proposal is an example of spending that will continue to fiscally derail America.

    Washington needs to cut wasteful spending and red tape to make it easier for the private sector to create jobs and grow our economy.”

    GREGG: A two-step solution to Congress’s budget dilemma

    By Judd Gregg – 02/14/11


    A way to create action on spending and the debt without undertaking political self-destruction is to set up a two-step event.

    Use the continuing resolution, which will have to be dealt with approximately a month and half before the debt ceiling, to set the table of action to justify the debt-ceiling vote.

    One approach would be to pass as part of the continuing resolution what would amount to a hybrid form of reconciliation instruction.

    The continuing resolution would direct the appropriate committees to report back bills

    prior to the debt-ceiling vote

    that would reduce federal spending over five years by the estimated amount that the debt ceiling would have to be raised.

    Thus, the two events could be used in tandem to create an orderly, understandable and effective way of addressing our looming debt crisis.

    This would be better than simply holding a debt-ceiling vote where if the “no” votes were to carry the day, we would end up with a government shutdown, the likes of which was fatal to those of us pushing fiscal responsibility in 1995.

    There is considerable political mileage to just voting “no” on the ceiling.

    But that only works if enough people vote “yes,” so it passes and there is not a shutdown. Shutdowns are messy things.

    Social security checks do not go out, veterans hospitals close, soldiers in the field do not get paid.

    The American people do not want this type of ineptness. They want Republicans to lead and to govern. This is an opportunity to do just that.

    Pass a continuing resolution that will drive real reform and thus justify raising the debt ceiling as a responsible act of conservative governance.

    HH: Mr. Secretary, on March 8th or 9th, I’m not sure, I’m going to be interviewing you at the Nixon Library about the book, Known And Unknown, but primarily about those early years.

    But I do want, for the benefit of this audience, the larger national audience, there’s quite a lot about Richard Nixon in here.

    And that’s where Marin Strmecki and I got to know each other laboring on the Nixon staff many years ago.

    Just a quick question which you didn’t say in the book, should Nixon have burned the tapes?

    DR: Well, there’s an awful lot of people who feel he should have.

    I should add there are a lot of people who felt he shouldn’t have taped in the first place.

    But clearly, he must have thought that they would make his place in history, and

    he of course was a brilliant man and a strategic thinker, and made some enormously important contributions to our country, and brought into government a whole host of people who contributed importantly to public affairs for the next thirty, forty years.

    The tapes, I would think, probably should have been destroyed up at any point before a special prosecutor or a judge said they could not be destroyed.

    HH: And now the other quick one I want to get is about Secretary Rice, who’s been a guest on this program.

    A very complicated portrait of her emerges in Known And Unknown, especially when she’s secretary of state, and she rebukes one of your generals, and you tell her that’s not your job, that’s my job.

    Was she better at being secretary of state, in your opinion, Donald Rumsfeld, than being a National Security Council advisor?

    DR: Yes.

    HH: Why?

    DR: Well, I don’t know. First of all, she had four years as a National Security Advisor, so she was a lot more experienced.

    I mean, this a very accomplished individual. She’s intelligent, and she had a good academic background.

    She’d had relatively modest experience in the executive branch of the government, having previously served in the National Security Council as a staff member.

    But I think after four years in the White House…and one of the things she had that was very, a big strength, was her closeness to President Bush.

    She clearly reflected what he wanted, I believe, and wanted to serve the President in a true way, which is an important thing for a senior foreign policy advisor.

    Almalkei deserved the full force of the law for first degree murder and instead will only get the punishment of a second degree murder conviction.

    Obama’s dangerous debt dodge


    But the president tossed in a qualifier:

    “Our annual spending will match our annual revenues.”

    Well, that clears things up.

    If you don’t count $3.7 trillion in interest payments as part of spending, the budget is balanced in 2017 and then slowly builds a tiny surplus.

    The technocrats at the IMF would surely applaud.

    They view elimination of primary deficits — by balancing revenue and regular spending — as a key first step to restoring fiscal health for heavily indebted nations.

    But America needs to take many more steps.

    Obama’s primary surpluses will quickly disappear in coming decades as government healthcare spending explodes.

    And if the economy grows a bit more slowly than what White House economists now forecast

    – say, more like the predictions from the Congressional Budget Office –

    Obama’s primary deficits would never disappear at all.

    It also seems risky to downplay interest costs

    when America’s finances are more vulnerable to interest rates than those of many nations

    because it has to refinance its debt relatively frequently.

    GOP Spending Plan a Welcome Change

    February 21, 2011

    By Paul Ryan



    The problem is simple: Many families and businesses look at the size of our debt and fear that we are heading for a diminished future.

    Last week, House Republicans voted to start getting Washington’s spending problem under control, bringing spending back to pre-stimulus, pre-bailout levels.

    Our $100 billion spending cut marks a welcome change from Washington’s pervasive culture of spending.

    We hope both parties can work together to earn back the trust of a skeptical public and restore confidence to the private sector.

    to fund the government for the rest of the fiscal year and

    HH: Now in terms of going forward here, does the community in Washington, D.C. feel like they can withstand the popular revolt that is brewing,

    that we see in the streets of Wisconsin, Robert Samuelson, that we see in Ohio and Indiana, and in other places, and

    in which we see in the opposition to AARP that’s sprung up across the country?

    Does the deep elite, I’ll call it, of the Beltway think they can just ride this one out?

    RS: Well, I would have to say, just looking at what’s going on in Wisconsin and some of the other Midwestern states, it’s not clear what the revolt it.

    I mean, you have union supporters who are objecting to the cutbacks that are being proposed in these states.

    And then you have people who are in favor of the cutbacks.

    So I think in Washington, what they want to do at the moment is avoid backlash of any sort.

    And you know, I think you’ve got an awful lot…and I would exempt the House Republicans for this.

    And I don’t agree with everything they’ve done, but they’ve certainly taken a lot of political risks.

    But in general, I would say, the attitude here is let’s not stir the hornets nest too much.

    HH: Yeah, I think what November was, was a big blowback, and that despite the crowds of people in Wisconsin, the public opinion polling for Gallup and for Rasmussen, et cetera,

    shows that it’s an era of restraint, and the big special interests have to get used to it.

    RS: No, but there is this fundamental contradiction. And at some point, we’re going to have to deal with it.

    The contradiction is if you ask people whether they’re worried about the deficit, and worried about excessive spending, they say so.

    But if you ask people whether or not they want to cut back Medicare and Social Security, they don’t.

    And those are the big programs for government.

    Medicare, Social Security and Medicaid together represent more than 40% of total government spending.

    And then when you throw in interest on the debt and national defense, that’s basically most of the budget.

    HH: It is, and I really believe that seniors, especially, are ready to see serious reforms, and they’re ready to overthrow AARP.

    Hawaii controversy over birth certificate guardian

    Senator challenges governor on firing of state’s health department director

    Posted: February 25, 2011

    By Jerome R. Corsi



    Sen. Sam Slom, the sole Republican in Hawaii’s upper house, is denouncing Abercrombie’s handling of the nomination of Dr. Neal Palafox to be the successor to Fukino as director of the state’s health department.


    “Neil is a small man, about 5 feet 1 inch in height, with a huge ego,” said Slom.

    “He thought he could come into office and do Obama a great favor by putting an end to Obama’s birth controversy.”

    But the inability to produce any documents after vows to the New York Times and other news organizations have only added fuel to the fire.

    The dismissal of Dr. Palafox has also stirred rumors about a possible connection to the birth certificate drama.

    The latest development comes as well-connected sources in Hawaii are warning that

    certain government officials in the state have been contemplating releasing fraudulent birth records for Obama

    in the run-up to the 2012 election.

    At least 11 states are currently considering legislation that would require future presidential candidates to prove constitutional eligibility by proving they are “natural born citizens.”

    Some of the bills under review in legislatures across the U.S. would require candidates to provide a long-form birth certificate

    – a document Obama has steadfastly denied the public and the press.

    (This is true, but we don’t know why.)

    “We went in and found where the President agreed with us, where the Senate said they agreed with us on earmarks. This is what we produced.

    Any Democrats who cant take these basic steps, they are putting politics before people,” said Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R.-Calif.).

    (I am not a Rush Limbaugh fan, but I do listen occasionally. And he said something the other day which I thought was spot on. We have Obama to thank for the tea party movement and conservatives pushing back. If he and Dems hadn’t overreached so arrogantly, we would have been our normal sheepish selves.)

    The Winter of My Discontent

    Ben Ross Berenberg

    This is the winter of my discontent,

    Like a dream you came and like a dream you went

    Before I had a chance to know what rapture meant

    Came the winter of my discontent.

    Now ev’ry trifle has become a care,

    Now there is no joy but only deep despair

    For now your lovely vision haunts me everywhere

    In this winter of my discontent.

    The world is full of dissonance,

    The scheme of things is wrong,

    The air resounds with the resonance

    Of a harsh and spiteful song.

    Now all the follies of the world seem small,

    Let the empires rise and let the heroes fall,

    And let the ruins burn for there’s no love at all

    In this winter of my discontent.

    ‘No evidence’ of problems with Hawaii health chief

    Explanation sought for governor’s removal of department director

    Posted: February 26, 2011

    By Jerome R. Corsi


    Sen. Sam Slom, the only Republican in the state Senate

    Slom said there are questions to be answered.

    “I don’t understand why Obama has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to keep all his records from the public — not just his Hawaii birth records, but his passport records and his school records.

    All Obama’s records should be public, including any Hawaii birth records that exist.”

    Slom said Abercrombie did conduct a search for Obama birth records – he wasn’t sure if Abercrombie looked himself, or if he sent someone to search the records.

    He said he believes Abercrombie thought he could come into office and do Obama a great favor by putting an end to Obama’s birth controversy.

    But the inability to produce any documents after vows to the New York Times and other news organizations only added fuel to the fire.

    The dismissal of Dr. Palafox has also stirred rumors about a possible connection to the birth certificate drama.

    The latest development comes as well-connected sources in Hawaii are warning that certain government officials in the state have been contemplating releasing fraudulent birth records for Obama in the run-up to the 2012 election.

    At least 11 states are currently considering legislation that would require future presidential candidates to prove constitutional eligibility by proving they are “natural born citizens.”

    Some of the bills under review in legislatures across the U.S. would require candidates to provide a long-form birth certificate – a document Obama has steadfastly denied the public and the press.

    His 2008 campaign offered only a certification of live birth, a short-form digital document that skeptics insist could be generated without an actual Hawaiian birth taking place.

    But the generation of the short-form document, by a simple affidavit from a family member, would have triggered the newspaper birth announcements that have been used by some to corroborate Obama’s birth story.

    The blogosphere is rife with speculation that Abercrombie dispatched Palafox as health director because he was unable to produce evidence supporting Abercrombie’s repeated claims Obama was born at Kapi’olani Medical Center.

    (Just because Hawaii not in possession of long-form doesn’t mean Obama not born there. It could be “missing” because it was amended.)
