RINOs

RINOs are Republicans In Name Only. They are progressive socialists that masquerade as conservatives, and are just as much a threat to the Republic of the United States of America as any anti-constitution democrat.

Rick Santorum -RINO

Richard JohnRickSantorum (born May 10, 1958) is a lawyer and a former United States Senator from the commonwealth of Pennsylvania. He is currently seeking the nomination for the Republican candidate for the President of the United States.

PATRIOT ACT: This Senator voted YES after 9/11 for counter-terrorism efforts which expands the reach of government to bypass our individual rights. This bill created the single largest infringement on our right to privacy as Americans permitting wiretaps within the United States without a search warrant if we make a call outside the usa, giving the government access to American companies client information, including medical records for anyone in the world, the list of infringements goes on and on regarding this over-reaching bill. For a time, the USA PATRIOT Act allowed for agents to undertake “sneak and peek” searches.

To deter and punish terrorist acts in the United States and around the world, to enhance law enforcement investigatory tools, and for other purposes. http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?bill=h107-3162

BANK DEREGULATION: This Senator voted YES on S.900 which was made into law October of 1999. The was a bipartisan bill, and received millions in bank lobbyists money to achieve. In fact, it passed with so many votes, even it had been vetoed by the President, it could have just done another vote to override the veto because it was ‘veto proof’.

What this bill did was permit other industries to own our banks, and it permitted our banks to own other industries. This allowed banks to co-mingle our money in the banks with riskier industries, such as credit cards and insurance, and we all know when it happened. The birth of the credit/debit card rapidly was done by all.

Many claimed the CRA (Community Reinvestment Act) created the bubble, but it is not true. The banks were not permitted to be deregulated in the S.900 unless they became CRA certified. CRA had been around since the 70′s, and more done in the mid 90′s to no avail. The banks simply would not take the risks associated in becoming CRA certified until the carrot of becoming deregulated was dangled in front of them.

An Act to enhance competition in the financial services industry by providing a prudential framework for the affiliation of banks, securities firms, and other financial service providers, and for other purposes. http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?bill=s106-900

Furthermore, this Senator later voted in December for the bill to permit mortgages to be securitized, allowing mortgages to be sold on the future’s market while the bank keeps administrative rights as Mortgage Service Providers. This vote was an oral vote, unanimous.

(Sec. 1208) Amends the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation Improvement Act of 1991
to increase from 90 percent to 100 percent of fair market value the permissible evaluation of readily marketable purchased mortgage servicing rights that may be included in calculating an insured depository institution’s tangible capital, risk-based capital, or leverage limit, if the Federal regulatory agencies jointly find that such an increase will not adversely affect the deposit insurance funds or the safety and soundness of insured depository institutions. http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?bill=h106-5640

Ben Stein: RINO

Benjamin Jeremy “Ben” Stein (born November 25, 1944) is an actor, writer, lawyer, and commentator on political and economic issues.  He is noted as being a former speechwriter for presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford.  During a pre-recorded commentary aired on CBS’s Sunday Morning show, Mr. Stein – also a CBS contributor – blamed “excessive tax cuts” enacted by former President Bush and congressional Republicans for “starting the problem” of the current federal budget deficit, and advocated raising taxes on the wealthy in addition to “major spending cuts” and changes in Medicare and Social Security to get the deficit under control. Stein: “The Republicans who started the problem with excessive tax cuts in the Bush years will have to agree to raise taxes at least upon the truly rich of whom there are plenty.”  Mr. Stein has clearly demonstrated that he either has no grasp of the economy and the private bank known as the Federal Reserve, or has been directed from some higher-up to give the Obama administration and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke cover for the damage they are inflicting on our monetary system, and the runaway inflation we are currently experiencing.  On August 18, 2007, on Fox News Channel’s Cavuto on Business, Mr. Stein appeared with other financial experts dismissing worries of a coming credit crunch.  Stein is a pro-life activist and was given a Pro-Life Award in 2003 by the National Right to Life Educational Trust Fund.  Ben Stein also endorsed Democrat Al Franken in the 2008 Minnesota Senate race, calling him an “impressive guy.”

Dean Heller: RINO

Dean A. Heller (born May 10, 1960) is the junior United States Senator from Nevada since 2011. He was previously a member of the United States House of Representatives, representing Nevada’s 2nd congressional district from 2007 to 2011. Prior to that he served as Secretary of State of Nevada (1994–2006) and a member of the Nevada Assembly (1990–1994).

FANNIE MAE/FREDDIE MAC BAILOUT: This Senator voted YES on H.R. 3221. This is the first large bailout bill that stirred the ‘sleeping giant’. The bill cost 900,000,000,000. If it had been the last bill, the ‘sleeping giant’ probably would have just returned to sleep. It was during the hot election where they were battling it out over the war issues, so eyes did not want to turn to the economy, which was in full collapse. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were privately run, but this bill bailed them out and returned them to being government run. Like many of the bills since this bill, it was originally called New Direction for Energy Independence, National Security, and Consumer Protection Act, which had nothing to do with the bill it later became in order to bypass original vote limits. http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?bill=h110-3221

TARP (BANK BAILOUT) BILL: This Congressman voted YES on the H.R. 1424, which was originally passed by the House as the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008. This is unconstitutional because all revenue bills must originate in the House of Representatives first. This bill provided massive loans to failing banks, who were participating in risky loans. This bill is the primary instrument in fully ‘waking the sleeping giant’ of the public because no regulations were put upon the banks to stop them from doing risky loans.

A bill to provide authority for the Federal Government to purchase and insure certain types of troubled assets for the purposes of providing stability to and preventing disruption in the economy and financial system and protecting taxpayers, to amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to provide incentives for energy production and conservation, to extend certain expiring provisions, to provide individual income tax relief, and for other purposes.

This is the Senate’s October 2008 Economic Stimulus Relief Bill. This bill was originally introduced in March 2007 and passed the House as the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008. In October 2008, it was co-opted as the so-called “vehicle” to pass the relief bill with an amendment that rewrites the whole bill. The House’s initial vehicle was H.R. 3997, but they failed to pass their amendment co-opting the bill. http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?bill=h110-1424

Tom Latham: RINO

Thomas “Tom” Latham (born July 14, 1948) is the U.S. Representative for Iowa’s 4th congressional district, serving since 1995.

EARMARKS show if our Congressmen are ‘for sale’. Lobbyist’s routinely pay in the form of campaign contributions for special favors, so our Congressmen dutifully writes them earmarks. Congressmen also use earmarks to bypass Congressional Committees for those who they favor, which is unethical. Many Congressmen feel the need to support special projects in cities and states, when the fact is, the cities and states should have the money directly, to use as they choose, not beg a Congressmen for favors. No single person should have the ability to dole out money like a King. It is the most unAmerican act currently being done in Congress. Every election both parties promise NOT to do it. They promise to vote against earmarks and lobbying with money. -But they make sure it never passes, and continue their corrupt ways. The people have promised to replace anyone who continues these behaviors. Here is this Congressman’s earmarks.

Tom Latham sponsored or co-sponsored 54 earmarks totalling $66,190,000 in fiscal year 2010 http://www.opensecrets.org/politicians/earmarks.php?cid=N00004227&cycle=2008
