The Nacilbupera Guzzle

Whoever examines with attention the history of the dearths and famines … will find, I believe, that a dearth never has arisen from any combination among the inland dealers in corn, nor from any other cause but a real scarcity, occasioned sometimes perhaps, and in some particular places, by the waste of war, but in by far the greatest number of cases by the fault of the seasons; and that a famine has never arisen from any other cause but the violence of government attempting, by improper means, to remedy the inconveniences of a dearth. (Adam Smith, The Wealth of Nations IV.5.44)

New Rebirth to Old Persia?

Iran's Flag (Pre-Islamofascist-Revolution)

Nacilbupera would be amiss if we didn't publicly show our support for the demonstrators in Iran; acutely so when we are married to a 1979 political refugee from the great Persian nation.

Iran has been hijacked by Islamofascist terrorists; this is not new. They held our people--workers in our embassy--hostage until Reagan took office because they new better than to mess with Reagan. Khomeini and his puppet president Ahmadinejad are huge supporters of terrorist groups including Hamas. In Tiananmen-esque style they are arresting and slaughtering their own young people who sought nothing but peaceful demonstration in lieu of a corrupt, rigged election. They have taken hostage 8 diplomats employed at the English Embassy in Tehran. They have banned freedom of the press and threatened anyone who seeks to simply tell the truth of what is going on. They seek nuclear weapons against UN resolutions while the Persian economy tanks. They spread their hate by chanting "Death to America" in their mosques.

But the Persians are a proud people with centuries old history--predating Shi'a Islam and the birth of the Prophet Muhammad--including Cyrus, Darius, and Xerxes. Under these classic rulers Persia was the world's superpower and particularly in the case of Cyrus allowed Jewish (and other) religious freedoms. Persians today, Nacilbupera feels, yearn for the freedom of religion of their forefathers. They don't want to be the Islamofascist Republic of Iran. They respect the Jewish, Armenian (Christian), and Zoroastrian religious minorities that peacefully coexist within their borders and have done so for millennia. They DO believe in the holocaust and its tragedy. Most of them are followers of Islam but not of jihad against America. We see this in their chat today: "Ahmadinejad is Hitler and a holocaust is here."

Nacilbupera praises the efforts of its people to peacefully revolt and overthrow the Isalmofascist regime. We also are completely willing to support the Persian People if and as they deem it necessary to overthrow the regime by force as we Americans had to do in declaring ourselves free from Britain in 1776. Finally, Nacilbupera believes that the reason why so many noble Persians are willing to risk their lives and property is because they realize that their leaders are fixated on obtaining nuclear weapons which will result in retaliation from the international community in the form of an inevitable war, like neighbors Iraq and Afghanistan who were unsuccessful in overthrow tyranny by themselves.

On Mary Bono Mack's vote for Cap n Tax

Mary isn't the conservative her married surnames--from deceased husband Sonny Bono and current husband Florida Congressman Connie Mack--might convey her to be. Indeed she has quite liberal views in some areas although she generally votes along Republican lines.

Nacilbupera voted for Mary when we lived in Riverside County (CA) and would take Mary over the radical liberal Democratic alternatives we were offered pretty much any day.

However, the 45th Congressional District of California deserves not just a Republican better than a socialist Democrat, but rather a conservative: one who will uphold family values and traditional marriage as so many Catholic and Hispanic voters in the district would urge, as well as a fiscal conservative who will seek solutions to our problems though paying down federal debt not growing government and expanding revenues.

Nacilbupera was disappointed in Mary's vote today for Cap and Tax; perhaps better said irate, although the emotion is directed at her vote, not her person. Mary was one of just 1 of 8 Republicans voting for Cap and Tax in a vote so close that if just 4 of those Republicans had not bolted from the party, the bill would have been defeated. Consequently, Nacilbupera feels that the time has come for Mary to retire from Congress. As we remarked in an earlier post Nacilbupera supports a maximum of 5 or 6 terms for our U.S. Representatives. Mary is on her 6th term and that is enough.

To replace Mary, let's have a conservative Republican rise up now to run in 2010 and have Mary support him or her. One thing we like about Mary is that she does have respect for conservatives. That is the noble thing to do. Be like a George Washington who refused to run for a third term because he knew it wasn't good for the country.

Understandably there are many who need to retire worse than Mary starting with the longest-serving senator ever, nonagenarian Senator Byrd, who Nacilbupera predicts will die in office before he ever retires because he is now too old and senile to accept change and comprehend his own senility. It is an uncomfortable thought that behind plagiarist Biden and know-nothing-on-interrogations Pelosi is this KKK relic to be President. Byrd should have retired long ago. But Republicans must lead and not wait for their Democratic partners to die or acquiesce power because the Democrats won't--as we learned from having to create the 22nd Amendment in lieu of Byrd-esque gems like FDR.

Read Our Lips, Obama: No Cap And Trade

Obama promised in his quest for re-election a tax break "for 95% of Americans." Now with the Cap-and-Trade bill he urges Congress to pass he is indirectly taxing 100% of Americans. How so?

Obama gets away with his "inconvenient truth" of increasing taxes or the amount we pay to the federal government by effectively redefining taxes to be limited to personal income tax. Obama is not raising our income tax. Instead he is raising a massive tax on energy companies who must pass on the levied tax in the form of higher rates to consumers. This is not right and Nacilbupera is calling it out for what it is: a scheme to raise a massive $1.5 trillion through indirect taxation.

Interestingly, taxes levied through the higher rates are disproportionately levied on Republican-voting states. This chart shows that the 8 of the 10 states to receive the most energy price increases voted for McCain:

(1) Wyoming
(2) North Dakota
(3) West Virginia
(4) Kentucky
(5) Indiana
(6) Montana
(7) Alabama
(8) New Mexico
(9) Oklahoma
(10) Utah

while of the 10 states least affected in this proposal include 9 voting for Obama:
(1) Vermont
(2) Delaware
(3) Idaho
(4) California
(5) Washington
(6) Oregon
(7) New Jersey
(8) Rhode Island
(9) New York
(10) Connecticut

Put another way, the incremental energy-bill costs to consumers in Wyoming are close to 4000 times as more as if you live in Vermont.

But isn't the issue of CO2 emissions an issue for the states? Nacilbupera says yes. Yet in the 2007 Supreme Court 5-4 ruling in Massachusetts v. EPA the court ruled that the EPA must regulate CO2. Nacilbupera believes this ruling was made erroneously and was out of bounds for the authority granted the court. Yet the court has no power to specify what actions must be taken as this is the arena of Congress. Nacilbupera feels that voluntary compliance with CO2 reductions fulfill our erroneous court-ordered obligation and that a massive tax burden on us Americans is unwanted, unwarranted, and un-American.

For anyone who believed Obama's garbage pre-election promise of a tax break, you need to get on the phone with your representative NOW (vote in Congress tomorrow) and urge them to defeat the energy tax of Waxman-Markey--else take that bundle of money you saved by switching to GEICO and kiss it goodbye.

Happy Flag Day

Almost as a surprise after a disappointing National Prayer Day remembrance, President Obama issued this week a delightful celebration of Flag Day, encouraging us as citizens to fly our country's flag proudly this week beginning today in honor of the flag.

Nacilbupera is following the much missed leadership of our President and flying the flag today and this week (although we have unusual amounts of rain so forecasted so we may not be in compliance every day). We are proud of this great symbol of our country as it unites our 50 diverse states under the common constitution we share. America is the worldwide symbol of freedom, democracy, and republicanism (said even with a lower-case "r"). Americans proudly worship God through many divers forms, acknowledging without him we would not have America and a reason for Ol' Glory.

Today reminds Nacilbupera of a wonderful song "High on a Mountain Top", a classic Mormon hymn sung by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir in conjunction with the 2002 Olympics. The hymn speaks of a banner of truth to be unfurled and all nations to look up to her for the truths that God promised he would disseminate to us his children. It puts a tremendous obligation on us as citizens of the United States of America to be the country of liberty, truth, and nobleness we are in our hearts but not always our individual actions; to free ourselves by eliminating corruption and deceit; and to having power given to no man but power consented to our government from her equal citizens endowed with "unalienable rights".

NH Governor "Flinch" Signs Gay Marriage Into Law

Nacilbupera believes marriage was instituted among humanity by God to provide men and women with companionship and the happiness and blessing of children, while providing children with the happiness and blessing of having a Mother and a Father.

Yet today in New Hampshire, the once wildly-popular Democratic Governor John Lynch signed into law HB 73 which coupled with HB 436 legalizes homosexual marriage. Obviously this is a sad day especially considering that Lynch had already previously signed a civil unions bill.

But scandal lies behind the sadness, for the "gay victory" was wrought in corruption. First, Lynch did an about face on one of the most important issues before the people. He campaigned as a supporter of marriage between "a man and a woman" but signed the first bill reaching his desk approving gay marriage. Nacilbupera has already called out our own Governor Huntsman on a broken promise; and although admittedly Nacilbupera knows of no specific promise made by Lynch to veto gay marriage, Nacilbupera feels that Lynch should have been true to his clearly stated position on such a serious issue. Because of his dishonest approach to this, Lynch merits his nickname "Flinch" as New Hampshirers have labeled him.

Second, a Committee was established to work out details of the proposed law including exclusion rights of religious groups. The Committee had to vote unanimously but when Republican Senator Sheila Roberge refused to sign, Democratic Senate President Sylvia Larsen (pictured) violated Senate rules and simply replaced Senator Roberge with a Democrat who voted in favor. For this illegality, Senator Larsen earns a well-deserved Nacilbupera Political Opprobrium Onus. Nacilbupera also predicts that this law will be brought before the New Hampshire Supreme Court, who should invalidate the law if nothing else based on its illegal scheming.

Finally, Nacilbupera protests the way in which a centuries-old law was thrown under the bus by a Democratically-controlled New Hampshire Legislature and Governor. Where is the voice of the citizenry of New Hampshire when the elected Governor Flynched on his position and the Legislature founded the bill in corruption? Nacilbupera urges states everywhere to adopt State Constitutional Amendments protecting marriage between a man and a woman.

6/1/9 Islamic Terrorist Attack On America

We sadly announce the first successful foreign terrorist attack on the United States since 9/11.

Yesterday, 24 year-old Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad opened fired on an Army recruitment center in Little Rock, Arkansas, killing Pvt. William Long and injuring Pvt. Quinton Ezeagwula. Nacilbupera’s prayers go out to both families.

Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, formerly Carlos Bledsoe, converted to Islam in 2004 and trained in Yemen--a top Al-Qaeda training ground for U.S. recruits--studying in the school of jihadist imam Yahya Hajoori. Muhammad was under investigation by the FBI's Joint Terrorist Task Force after his return to the United States.

Whether Muhammad acted alone or under al Qaeda or other Islamofascist orders is unknown and under investigation. However, joining the facts that he trained in a foreign terrorist camp and committed an act of terrorism makes this a foreign attack on the U.S., and not merely domestic.

Nacilbupera asserts that al Qaeda is extremely dynamic and crafty in its jihad against the United States. It and other Islamofascist terrorist networks seek non-conventional jihad in ways we don’t suspect. It uses individuals rather than squads, companies, and armies to accomplish its evil designs. The world cannot know peace with the existence of such radicals and they must be removed and destroyed from global society through careful diligence and monitoring. We call upon moderate Muslims and followers of Allah to aid America in destroying those terrorists who would murder our families.


Nacilbupera sadly also predicts further foreign terrorist attacks on our soil as Mr. Obama continues to fail to protect our country, instead choosing apology and appeasement. (Indeed we predicted so a month ago.) Unlike the Presidential posture exhibited by our last president upon being attacked by foreign terrorists, Obama celebrated yesterday in France by hailing America as “one of the largest Muslim countries in the world.” Obama, you are a disgrace to our national security. Nacilbupera holds you accountable and you have failed, you failed Pvts. Long and Ezeagwula, and you will unfortunately continue to fail for as long as you model your foreign duties in the mold of Neville Chamberlain when we so desperately need as a country a Winston Churchill. Even Mr. Chamberlain was forced to declare war and admit about the fascists of his time: “[Hitler’s] action shows convincingly that there is no chance of expecting that this man will ever give up his practice of using force to gain his will. He can only be stopped by force…” Substitute Bin Laden’s or any other Islamofascist’s name in for Hitler, Mr. Obama, and you have before you the shield to protect our country.

Brigitte Gabriel understands the Islamofascist threat we face with this 2007 video introducing the ACT! for America organization:

This is no “overseas contingency operation,” Obama. This is terrorism, Obama. This is war, Obama.
