Congressman Forbes, Chairman of the House Armed Services Readiness Subcommittee, has released a video discussing looming defense cuts and their threat to jobs and those who serve.  The video is part of Congressman Forbes' Strong Defense, Strong America initiative, an effort to inform Members of Congress and the general public on the impacts of defense cuts that could result from the Supercommittee's deliberations or under sequestration as put forth in the Budget Control Act.  Secretary Panetta has warned that if looming trillion dollar cuts to national defense are enacted, the nation will see unemployment climb by another one percent. That's over 1.5 million jobs lost. Such devastating job losses forecast by the Defense Secretary exceed all of the job losses in the construction industry during the recession. Even if Secretary Panetta's numbers are overstated, another $600 billion in security cuts would undoubtedly bring at least 200,000 pink slips for active duty war-fighters nationwide; 13 percent of our service members will be forced out. To these individuals, the threat of getting a late paycheck during a government shutdown will pale in comparison to the prospect of joining the ranks of unemployed Iraq and Afghanistan veterans who already face a 22 percent jobless rate. Another 200,000 job losses will come to Department of Defense civilian workers; one in four will get pink slips.

The video is available here, or by clicking on the image below.

Question of the Week: Do you support Congressman Forbes' efforts to stave off drastic defense cuts that could result in a loss of jobs and an increase in unemployment of up to 1%?

(  ) Yes
(  ) No
(  ) Other (Share your thoughts on my blog here)
(  ) I am unsure.

Volume 36 -- October 18, 2011

Welcome to this week's Victory Insider, your weekly round-up of news, views, and information for staying up to speed on recent developments in Washington, the unfolding 2011-2012 election cycle, and GOP efforts to stop the Obama Agenda and return commonsense and responsibility to American government.

In this week's installment:

It All Starts With You!
With a record $9.1 million September fundraising haul, the Republican National Committee is making great strides toward crucial 2012 presidential election year preparedness.  (Brody Mullins, "RNC Makes Fund-Raising Gains," Wall Street Journal, 10/12/2011)

Told You So
Barack Obama's dishonest claims that ObamaCare would reduce costs couldn't stand the harsh light of reality.  (Editorial, "Class Dismissed: HHS Pulls the Plug on One of ObamaCare's Main Fiscal Illusions," Wall Street Journal , October 15, 2011)

Solyndra Keeps Unraveling
"Treasury officials acknowledged that the government's restructuring of the loan earlier this year was unusual, if not unprecedented. Through that process, Solyndra investors, not taxpayers, were put at the front of the line for recovering money in case of bankruptcy."  ("Treasury Officials' Testimony Fuels GOP Concerns Over Solyndra Loan Restructuring," Fox News/Associated Press, 10/14/2011)

Pants On Fire
Attorney General Eric Holder was unaware of "Fast & Furious" in April, but Obama knew about it in March?  Yeah, right.  (Video, "Obama Spoke About "Fast & Furious" Before Holder Claimed He Knew," RealClearPolitics, 10/13/2011)

Montana Hypo-crat
"Tester should clean his own house before trying to score cheap political points."  (Conn Carroll, "Tester Takes Iran-Linked Company Cash," Washington Examiner, 10/14/2011)

Blame Game
"After three years, Obama's self-proclaimed transformative social policies have yielded a desperately weak economy. What to do? Take the low road: Plutocrats are bleeding the country, and I shall rescue you from them."  (Charles Krauthammer, "The Scapegoat Strategy: Obama Now Blames People Instead of Events," National Review, 10/14/2011)

Progressively Undemocratic
The inherent autocratic nature of "liberals" becomes more and more apparent as the people increasingly reject their utopian schemes. (David A. Keene, "Democrats Slowly Abandon Democracy: We're a People Too Stupid to Govern Ourselves Without Liberal Leadership," Washington Times, 10/11/2011)

Only One Job Matters to Obama
"14 Million Unemployed Americans Spent Another Quarter Watching Obama Look Out For His Own Future Instead Of America's."  (RNC Research, "The Most Successful Fundraising-Not-Focused-On-The-Economy President Ever RETURNS," GOP.com, 10/13/2011)

Unhinged Pelosi
"This is about just how out-of-touch progressives are on social issues. If you fail to show sufficient enthusiasm for paying to kill someone else's baby, it is a sign that you're heartless."  (David Freddoso, "Pay For Abortion or Women 'Die on Floor,'" Washington Examiner, 10/13/2011)

More Crony Capitalism
Is this the next Solyndra?  It certainly has the appearance of impropriety... (Aaron Klein, "Look Whose Relative Just Got $135.8 Million Energy Loan: 'Green' Firm With White House Ties Lined Up to Get Massive Guarantee," WND.com, 10/11/2011)

instaPoll: Do you support the 414 Plan that suspends regulations hindering the construction of roads and bridges?

Congressman Randy Forbes

 

 

A 2010 Government Accountability Office report found that a quarter of the country's 600,000 bridges are either "structurally deficient" or inadequate to meet today's traffic needs. To address this problem, Congressman Forbes has introduced the 414 Plan, a bill that temporarily suspends burdensome regulations that have stalled the highway construction process to an average of 13.1 years while still maintaining rigorous safety and durability standards. The 414 Plan:

  • Suspends for five years all federal regulations that do not pertain to the safety or durability of highway facilities, or of public and workplace safety;
  • Dispenses with costly, outdated federal requirements while continuing to afford states and localities flexibility in utilizing federal funding for road and bridge projects;
  • Expresses the sense of Congress on the need for greater interagency cooperation among project stakeholders to further expedite the deployment of surface transportation projects;
  • Does not authorize any new, stimulus-style funding; and
  • Has been referred to the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure.

The text of the legislation is available here.

Question of the Week: Do you support the 414 Plan that suspends regulations hindering the construction of roads and bridges?

(  ) I support the 414 Plan.
(  ) I do not support the 414 Plan.
(  ) Other (share your thoughts on my blog)
(  ) I am unsure.

Obama's Litany of Failure

Volume 35 -- October 11, 2011

Welcome to this week's Victory Insider, your weekly round-up of news, views, and information for staying up to speed on recent developments in Washington, the unfolding 2011-2012 election cycle, and GOP efforts to stop the Obama Agenda and return commonsense and responsibility to American government.

In this week's installment:

Solyndra Song & Dance
"When government takes $535 million and invests in a loser, it not only wastes taxpayer money but it also denies that capital to some other project in the private economy that might have succeeded. The Solyndra emails show how ill-equipped government is to predict the industries of the present, much less the future."  (Editorial, "The Solyndra Economy: Administration Emails Reveal the Reality of Politicized Investing," Wall Street Journal, 10/10/2011)

"Nuclear" Fallout
Tyrannical hypocrite Harry Reid invokes so-called "nuclear option" in Senate to protect Democrats from having to vote on Obama's pathetic "jobs bill."  (Russ Vought, "Reid Goes Nuclear to Block the President's Stimulus Plan," RedState, 10/6/2011)

Spoiled Rotten
The juvenile, selfish mobs of "Occupy" protesters are simply reflecting the irresponsible, entitled attitude of Democrat "leaders" in Washington.  (Star Parker, "More From the Culture of Narcissism," Townhall, 10/10/2011)

Litany of Failure
"The Obama administration has approached its governing responsibilities as follows: Isolate a problem, proclaim an urgent need to address it, propose legislation and then try to ram it through Congress before people have a chance to read it or appreciate the exact effect it will have on the nation."  (Colin Hanna, "Lies, Failure and Wasted Money: What the White House Doesn't Want You to Know," Washington Times, 10/7/2011)

No Surprise Here
There's nothing like reality for burning away the dreamy mists of misplaced expectation.  (Victor Davis Hanson, "Ten Lessons from Obama: In Less Than Three Years Barack Obama Has Reversed All Expectations," National Review, 10/4/2011)

Debit Card Demagogues
After saddling banks with cost of debit card processing fees, Democrats disparage banks' transfer of cost to consumers. (Richard A. Epstein, "Dick's Debit-Card Dud: End 'Gouging,' Kill an Industry," New York Post, 10/5/2011)

Recessions Are For the Little People
Will Barack Obama ask his wife to pay a "corporate jet tax" for her public-funded jaunts?
(Nile Gardiner, "Michelle Obama's Taxpayer-Funded Spending is an Embarrassment for the White House," The Telegraph, 10/5/2011)

Classless Act
"For presidential candidates to rail against incumbents from an opposing party is normal; for a president to rail for years against a predecessor of any party is crass -- and something to which neither Reagan nor Lincoln, each of them inheritors of much bigger messes, stooped."  (Bret Stephens, "The President of Contempt: To Barack Obama, America is Lovable in Proportion to the Love it Gives Him in Return," Wall Street Journal, 10/4/2011)

We've Seen This Before
Eric Holder has had plenty of practice passing the buck over scandalous legal actions.  (Andrew McCarthy, "Holder's Dubious History: The AG's Fast & Furious Amnesia is Reminiscent of His Marc Rich Amnesia," National Review, 10/5/2011)

instaPoll: Do you support House-approved language that authorizes the U.S. military to use force against terrorists plotting against the United States?

Congressman Randy Forbes

 

 
Last week, Anwar al-Awlaki, an American-born radical cleric and prominent al-Qaeda leader, was killed by a U.S. drone strike.  Awlaki helped direct al-Qaeda operations, including the attempt on Christmas Day 2009 to bomb an airliner bound for Detroit and an effort in 2010 to use explosive-laden printer cartridges to blow up cargo planes bound for the United States.  Although this is considered by most to be a huge victory in America's ongoing war on terror, some have raised questions about the legality of the mission authorized to kill an American-born terrorist affiliated with al-Qaeda.  Earlier this year, I joined 321 of my colleagues in support of the National Defense Authorization Act, a bill that contains an important provision that reaffirms that the Unites States is at war with al-Qaeda, the Taliban, and associated forces.  While groups like al-Qaeda are now weaker and increasingly scattered, these groups still pose a continuing threat to U.S. national security.  This legislation would ensure the U.S. military has the legal authority to continue to address the threats posed by these groups and eliminate terrorists like Awlaki.

Question of the Week: Do you support House-approved language that authorizes the U.S. military to use force against terrorists plotting against the United States?

(   )  Yes
(   )  No
(   )  Other (share your thoughts on my blog)
(   )  I am unsure.

"Why a gunrunning scandal codenamed 'Fast and Furious,' a program run secretly by the U.S. government that sent thousands of firearms over an international border and directly into the hands of criminals, hasn't been pursued by an army of reporters all trying to be the next Bob Woodward or Carl Bernstein is a story in itself."  (Frank Miniter, "Fast And Furious" Just Might Be President Obama's Watergate," Forbes, 9/28/2011)
