The Age of Insanity

There has been much said about the United States doing away with the dollar and joining with the rest of the world to implement a global currency. Even U.S. Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner has admitted he would be open to the idea, although he quickly backtracked when the stock market plunged on his announcement. However, a member of Congress is warning the Obama administration to keep its hands off the U.S. dollar's status as the world's international currency. U.S. Rep. Michelle Bachmann, R-Minn., has introduced a resolution that would bar the U.S. from recognizing any other currency than the dollar as its reserve currency. The following was included in an article in World Net Daily about Representative Bachmann's legislation:

"As a result, legislation prohibiting the president and Treasury Department from issuing or agreeing that the U.S. will adopt an international currency would need to come in the form of a Constitutional Amendment differentiating a treaty used to implement an international currency in the U.S. from other types of treaty agreements, she said.

"If we give up the dollar as our standard, and co-mingle the value of the dollar with the value of coinage in Zimbabwe, that dilutes our money supply. We lose control over our economy. And
economic liberty is inextricably entwined with political liberty. Once you lose your economic freedom, you lose your political freedom," Bachmann told the Glenn Beck program on the Fox News Channel today."

Too bad common sense isn't contagious on The Hill. Sadly, it seems to be in very short supply.


Obama's recent nomination of former Yale Law School Dean Harold Koh as legal adviser for the State Department is beyond scary. Meghan Clyne reported in the New York Post that Koh, in addressing the Yale Club of Greenwich in 2007, claimed that "in an appropriate case, he didn't see any reason why sharia law would not be applied to govern a case in the United States."

Koh refers to himself as a transnationalists. Transnationalists believe in an ever-changing, living Constitution and reject originalism (interpreting the Constitution according to its original understanding). They see the international community, in the words of Koh, as a "community of reason" and believe that American judges, in interpreting our Constitution, can resort to this "community of reason" (foreign laws) to choose between two "plausible" legal positions. The United States sovereignty in on the line.

Obama is doing everything he can as quickly as he can to change this country forever. We've written our elected representatives and senators, citizens of this country are joining organizations such as the912project.com as well as organizing tea parties in protest of the Obama agenda, and yet he, his cabinet, and the liberal puppets on The Hill have turned a deaf ear. We think they have underestimated "we the people." We will not be dissuaded and will continue to do whatever we can by voicing through this blog our objections to the Obama agenda and by contacting our elected representatives and letting them know that their constituents are unhappy with the direction in which Obama is trying to steer this country. We will definitely make our voices heard at the polls in 2010 when our Nevada senator, Harry Reid will come up for re-election. We hope that we and our fellow Nevadans give Reid a well-deserved retirement.
