IAHF List: I just participated in WND's "No More Red Ink" Campaign to bombard congress with letters sent in my name by Fedex to demand that Congress oppose raising the Debt Ceiling (see the WND article below.)
WND had a previous similar hard hitting campaign via which people mailed "Pink Slips" to numerous members of congress who were failing to uphold their oaths. It actually had a very positive impact in the last election,but now, we have to do something similar again, or Boehner will gutlessly capitulate to the Obamination by hypocritically moving to raise the debt ceiling,even as he talks out the other side of his mouth pretending to be concerned about the DEFICIT which threatens to cause a total collapse of the dollar and to put us under martial law.
Like Ostriches sticking their heads in the sand, the whores in Congress have to be read the riot act RIGHT NOW or you will not only lose access to supplements via DSHEA being expunged via the total destruction of our country as FDA would then usher back door Codex on us via their Trilateral Cooperation Charter with Canada and Mexico, but you will experience martial law following a total crash of the dollar.... which could come REGARDLESS of whether or not we stop Congress from mindlessly raising the debt ceiling but we have to at least TRY to defend ourselves from this fiscal insanity!!! Please let me know if you participate in WND's campaign. I know it costs a few bucks, but isn't it WORTH IT to try to save America from the Machevellian world ruling elite's efforts to destroy us? (Even though I am broke, to me it WAS worth it. Please join me in this- see the article below!!

Boehner blowing GOP's
House speaker capitulating on raising the debt limit,
while complaining about debt
|House Speaker John Boehner is complaining about new spending plans by Democrats, yet is handing them a blank check with his own plan to raise the debt limit, says the organizer of a campaign to persuade House Republicans to block the move.
"I got an e-mail from Boehner's office this week," said Joseph Farah, editor and chief executive officer of WND and the force behind the "No More Red Ink" campaign opposing a hike in the debt limit. "He asked, 'What's the definition of fiscal insanity?' He answered that Democrats are calling for more wasteful spending to drag the U.S. out of its recession. But the real definition of fiscal insanity is that Republicans, led by Boehner, are planning to allow the Democrats to keep borrowing and printing money to fuel their initiatives."
Farah says Republicans will blow the biggest opportunity they will have for the next two years to stop the insanity – to stop doing the same thing over and over while expecting different results – if they go along with plans to raise the debt limit.
"This is something House Republicans control," explains Farah. "They don't need consensus. They don't need any Democrats to join them. All they have to do is vote against raising the debt limit. At that point, government needs to begin living within its means. No more borrowing, no more debt, no more spending. Washington will be forced to make the kind of drastic cuts it should have made decades ago. That's the power 242 House Republicans have. They don't need to bicker and argue with Democrats about fiscal priorities. That's useless. They can just dry up the funds with one vote."
That's where the "No More Red Ink" campaign comes in. Farah's initiative allows the American public to send all 242 House Republicans red letters demanding that they honor their campaign rhetoric from last fall and oppose raising the debt limit.
Last week, the campaign shipped the first 125,000 "red ink" letters to House Republicans urging them to oppose raising the debt limit when it comes to a vote in the coming weeks.
Shock the Washington establishment by participating in the "No More Red Ink" campaign and shut down all new plans for bailouts, "stimulus" spending and even the funding for Obamacare.
"Unfortunately, if the House Republicans do not hear from the American people in strength, they will vote for business-as-usual deficit spending for the next two years and surrender the power they have to force fiscal responsibility on Barack Obama and the Democrats in the Senate," says Farah. "House Speaker John Boehner says he wants to use the debt limit to wrangle concessions out of the Democrats, but when he signals, as he did last weekend, that Congress must raise the debt limit to keep the government solvent, he has already waved the white flag of surrender on the most important vote to be cast in Congress over the next two years."
The only hope, Farah says, is a major outpouring of protest from tea party activists and true conservatives who recognize that government is way too big and is in desperate need of major cuts just to bring it in line with the Constitution.
Farah launched the "No More Red Ink" campaign to persuade the House Republican majority to say no to raising the debt limit – the only action, he says, that will force Washington to stop unsustainable spending in the short term.
For his part, Farah has made it easy for the public to make their voices heard in Washington in a powerful way.
The "No More Red Ink" campaign will flood House Republican's offices with "red ink" letters that remind them they are holding all the cards in getting government spending under control and that all they have to do is vote "no" on raising the debt limit.
"This is a plan to separate the real economic conservatives from the pretenders," said Farah. "If you want to reduce the debt that is destroying this country's economy we have a chance right now to slam on the brakes. Once the debt limit is raised, it's back to business as usual."
Republicans in the House hold all the cards, Farah points out. They don't need a single Democratic vote to side with them. If 218 out of 242 Republicans in the House vote no on raising the debt limit, the debate is over – "and so is the growing U.S. debt."
"At that point, Barack Obama can't implement Obamacare," he said. "From that moment onward, there will be no more spending initiatives by Obama for the next two years. There will be no more bailouts, no more 'stimulus' spending. It's all over. In fact, the most significant budget cuts in modern American history will have to be made – and the Republican House will still have to approve them."
Farah says he can't understand why so few conservatives and Republicans are pushing the idea. So far, only Sens. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., and Pat Toomey, R-Pa., Reps. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., Ron Paul, R-Texas, and Anthony Weiner, D-N.Y., have taken positions against raising the debt limit.
"I have to believe that most Americans are simply unaware of what is about to transpire," he said. "Everyone is talking about the debt crisis – even Obama. But no one is talking about the opportunity we have to start reversing it right now. It's always tomorrow, next year, next decade. That is a recipe for an even bigger disaster. Borrowing more is never a solution to a debt problem."
The "No More Red Ink" campaign allows Americans to send a "red ink" letter to every member of the House majority urging them to vote "no" on raising the debt limit. The letters are individually addressed to each member, with guaranteed delivery by Fed Ex for a cost of just $29.99. It would cost an individual more than $100 in postage alone to send the 242 letters with no guaranty of delivery and certainly nowhere near the impact.
"I'm here to tell you that the Republicans in the House will be held accountable for this surrender to the Washington establishment and the Democrats in the Senate and White House if they capitulate on more debt spending," says Farah. "Republicans in the House hold all the cards they need to stop this fiscal insanity this year. If they give in, they will be no better than the Democrats who have wrecked this economy."
A similar campaign organized by WND last year delivered more than 9 million "pink slips" to members of the House and Senate. Farah is hoping a similar response by Americans in the next few weeks will persuade House Republicans to oppose raising the debt limit.
Farah says some in House leadership are already suggesting they will support raising the debt limit in March in exchange for the promise of budget cuts by Democrats.
"Why Republicans would bargain for budget cuts that Democrats themselves will be forced to implement if the debt limit is not raised makes no sense," he says. "By definition, a vote to raise the debt limit permits the Democrats to spend more money than Washington collects. Republicans will, in effect, give Democrats license to keep overspending and increasing debt by approving a debt limit increase."
On the other hand, Farah says, all Republicans in the House have to do to force Democrats to cut spending radically for the first time in decades is to stick together in opposing a hike in the debt limit.
"There is a lot of pressure on House Republicans to simply negotiate a deal with the Democrats on budget cuts or a balanced budget in exchange for a vote to raise the debt limit," said Farah. "To me it makes no sense. Republicans, by merely voting as a bloc in the House alone, can force bigger cuts in the budget than they will ever get in any deal with Democrats. Why would they trade that nuclear option. Republicans in the House hold all the cards. This is what they were elected to do last November – for a time such as this."
Farah urges Americans to participate in a program to inundate House Republicans with "red ink" lettersthat explain they hold all the cards in balancing the budget this year – without any help from the Democrat-controlled Senate or House Democrats or Barack Obama.
"We've got to get their attention right now," he said. "We have only weeks to ensure they get the message. Voting to raise the debt limit will be business as usual. It will give Democrats and Obama license to keep spending, to enact Obamacare, to keep bailing out the wealthy and to ensure the economic train wreck is bigger and worse than we can imagine. Opposing the raising of the debt limit represents the first major step back from the economic brink for America."
Send the "red ink" letters by guaranteed Fed Ex delivery to all 242 House Republicans to encourage them not to fritter away the leverage they have to bring spending under control this year.
