Senate Erroneously Confirms ‘Food Safety Crisis’ Is Real Despite New CDC Data Proving Otherwise

"Congratulations on one of our final acts of sabotaging democracy and freedom together!"

"Congratulations on one of our final acts of sabotaging democracy and freedom together!"

Here’s something to chew on that you’ll be hard-pressed to find in the State-Run Media’s news buffet: The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) released “precise” new data last week that “thoroughly refute the misleading claims of alarmists advocating for vastly expanding federal regulation of the food supply.”

The House recently passed its version of the Food Safety bill using exaggerated CDC numbers from 1999 to create the aura of a crisis in Americans’ minds, reports the Heritage Foundation. On Sunday evening, the Senate pushed ahead in turning myths in to reality by agreeing to pass the ‘junk science’ legislation with a voice vote, despite the CDC’s new report released last Wednesday showing significant drops in food-borne illnesses and related deaths.

“The previous figures cited by the CDC originated from estimates compiled in 1999,” Heritage Foundation’ Diane Katz notes. “The new figures, employing data from 2000 to 2008 and better statistical methods, represent ‘the most accurate picture yet’ of food-borne illness, agency officials said.”

Just another instance of big government bureaucrats neglecting to take the time to read anything pertinent to the issue at hand before ‘passing the bill‘ and screwing American citizens with needless reforms for the sake of “change.”

NSLF’s Top 10 Least Wanted in U.S. Senate

Editor’s Note: Candidates appear in no particular order.

"Do the 'robot' for me one more time, Barry!"

"Do the 'robot' for me one more time, Barry!"

1. Patty Murray (D-Wash.) – “What’s good for the goose is good for the gander,” says Murray, but only if it’s her gander and you’re willing to play nice with this big government bureaucrat. In 2009, she threatened Senate colleagues to fund the now infamous $223 million Alaskan “Bridge to Nowhere” — a favor for her friend Sen. Ted Stevens (R-Alaska) — or else she’d make it difficult for them to waste taxpayers’ millions in their own states on their own pork barrel projects.

"So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, goodbye!"

"So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, goodbye!"

2. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) – For some strange reason, the Rolling Stone’s song “Start Me Up” comes to mind when thinking about good old Harry. Let’s all sing together, especially if you’re a Nevadan: “I’ve been running hot. You’ve got me ticking gonna blow my top.” Why? In Nevada alone, unemployment is at 14 percent and foreclosure rates are five times above the national average. His solution: Grab $57 million in taxpayer funds to pay-off defaulted mortgages in his state. Better watch out for your job, too, because he thinks unemployed American citizens should compete with illegal aliens for whatever jobs still exist.

"Do you think we can re-unite on Dancing with the Stars?"

"Do you think we can re-unite on Dancing with the Stars?"

3. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) – Babs doesn’t think American parents are responsible enough to raise their own children, so she’s pushing the Obama Administration to ratify a United Nations treaty that would empower foreign crackpots and quacks to make decisions about how our nation’s children should be raised, disciplined, and educated. One provision of the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child states, “A child’s ‘right to be heard’ would allow him (or her) to seek governmental review of every parental decision with which the child disagreed.” So, asking Little Johnny to take out the trash could result in a U.N. tribunal determining the legal merits of your request versus his so-called ‘rights.’ Brilliant, Babs! There are some nice men in white coats awaiting your arrival.

"I love it when you talk dirty politics with me!"

"I love it when you talk dirty politics with me!"

4. Russ Feingold (D-Wis.) — “There’s only thing worse than big government and that’s big government owned by special interests,” Feingold told the Wisconsin Democratic Convention in June. Guess what? He’s taking in special interests’ money hand over fist in his current campaign alone, making him worse than … himself! And, let’s not forget about a little law he passed in 2002 commonly known as the ‘Incumbent Protection Act’ to silence opponents of big government career politicians in election years.

Is there a cereal for losers, too?

5. Blanche Lincoln (D-Ark.) – Lincoln claims that she’s “saving our children” with the $4.5 billion allocated to her Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, but chances are you’re still packing lunches for Little Johnny (or, Jane) while other kids are eating for free, courtesy of taxes taken out of you job wages. Quit the job and maybe your kid(s) will eat for free, too! And, that’s just how big government bureaucrats like Lincoln want it – them taking care of you and your kid(s) from the cradle to the grave.

"You remind me of a younger Arlen Specter!"

"You remind me of a younger Arlen Specter!"

6. Charlie Crist (I-Fla.) – “I’ve never voted for a new tax in my life, and I only signed one, and that was on cigarettes, so who cares,” remarked Crist in a July interview with the Wall Street Journal. Who cares? Well, for starters, how about every American citizen who is still free to purchase and smoke cigarettes! Crist seems to think taxpayers who smoke don’t matter, and taking their hard-earned money is proper punishment for a lifestyle decision he opposes.

"Show me how bad you want my old seat!"

"Show me how bad you want my old seat!"

7. Alexi Giannoulias (D-Ill.) – Here’s what President Obama says about Giannoulias: “Alexi’s my friend. I know his character. You can trust him. You can count on him.” Well, back in 2004, Alexi was a loan officer for his family’s bank when it leant $20 million to Chicago mobsters hard hit by the recession. Alexi joins a growing list of FoBs (Friends of Barry) that Americans can’t afford to trust, much less elect to represent their best interests in the U.S. Senate.

"A vote for me is a vote for Nancy Pelosi!"

"A vote for me is a vote for Nancy Pelosi!"

8. Paul Hodes (D- N.H.) – Hodes spends money like it’s nobody’s business, including American taxpayers. On Sept. 15, he told his Facebook followers, “I will fight to create and keep jobs right here in New Hampshire and to end the wasteful spending and reckless policies in Washington that have left our hard-working men and women in the dust.” Those are tough words coming from a guy who has voted lockstep with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to make it nearly impossible for businesses nationwide to afford to create jobs and hire new workers.

"Joe's gonna do to you what I did to New Yorkers - control your appetites and everything in-between."

"Joe's gonna do to you what I did to New Yorkers - control your appetites and everything in-between."

9. Joe Sestak (D-Pa.) – For starters, you have to be suspicious of any politician who has the cross-party blessing of New York City’s Nanny-in-Chief Michael Bloomberg. Next, Sestak tells us, “I don’t just give a cute slogan and say cut government, cut taxes. Yes, we all would like that. It’s about effective government. Tell us what you’d cut. I’ll stand up to my own party and to any special interest group. I served this nation. My career is over. This is a passion to do what’s right in service to this country one more time.” Hmm. Was bailing out Wall Street, then buying stock in Bank of America (BoA), and then voting for a second bailout of America’s banks, including BoA, “right” for helping taxpayers or your stock portfolio recover from economic collapse?

Done kissing babies on the campaign trail, Jack turns to horses to win their votes.

10. Jack Conway (D-Ky.) — Conway adamantly refuses to file a lawsuit to repeal Obamacare in W.V. because he doesn’t want to “waste” taxpayer dollars on something that the majority of his state’s citizens didn’t want to waste their money on in the first place. Also note that he has vowed to eliminate the ‘filibuster’ in Congress because he says opponents of Obama, Pelosi and Reid’s big government agenda are always making a fuss about nothing and wasting everyone’s time in the process.

HONORABLE MENTION:

Joe tries to prove that the stimulus is working for West Virginians. Again, he's the only one who believes it.

Joe tries to prove that the stimulus is working for West Virginians. Again, he's the only one who believes it.

11. Joe Manchin (D-W.V.) – Manchin said in February that the stimulus bill would “make a big difference in the job market.” West Virginia’s unemployment rate peaked at 10.9 percent that month, dropped down to 8.5 percent in May and has been steadily on the rise ever since, thanks to porkulus funds being flushed down the toilet, literally, in his state. According to Gov. Manchin’s “WEST VIRGINIA STIMULUS/AMERICAN RECOVERY ACT INFORMATION” webpage, “[M]any of the details of the Recovery Act are still being determined both on the federal and state level.” That’s big government talk for, “We still don’t have a clue, but our intentions are really good.”

The Great Lie of the Nanny State

Video brought to you by the Tenth Amendment Center. Here’s an introduction to their synopsis of the video (read more on video’s YouTube description):

Many of us, after years of indoctrination at our government schools, were left with a sense that there is a great government force working hard every day to protect us and look after our best interest. We were told that government standards keep us safe from disease, that government highway regulations keep us safe from car accidents, that federal agencies make sure that the food we eat will be healthy.

The result of all of this? Americans everywhere drive more carelessly, do not research what they put on their plate and take medications that leave them sicker, rather than healthier …

Voters Will Choose Between Tyranny and Independence on Nov 2

It's time to break the addiction on Nov. 2

It's time to break the addiction on Nov. 2

Here’s a terrific article from conservative blogger Daniel Greenfield that details “The Making of a Dependent Electorate.” America, the choice is yours on November 2 – laying the final bricks for the Nanny States of America or continuing to build on the dreams and goals of our nation’s Founding Fathers.

“Everything the Obama Administration has done, was for the purpose of creating a dependent electorate. A people that would have no choice but let them wield as much power as they want, without a word of protest,” writes Greenfield. “The dependent electorate represents the hijacking of America. It aims for a major power shift that takes power from the people and gives it to the government …”
