U.S. SENATOR BEN NELSON (D-NE) to the CITIZENS of NEBRASKA: “You’re not the boss of me!”

United States Senator Ben Nelson (D-NE) receives his $174,000 annual salary through payroll checks drawn from the U.S. Treasury but he actually works for the Corporation. The DNC Services Corporation. So, while the U.S. Constitution authorizes his office in the Legislative branch of the federal government, Mr. Nelson takes his marching orders directly from the DNC. And even though the Declaration of Independence proclaims that governments “deriv[e] their just powers from the consent of the governed,” given the choice between following the lead of his constituents back home in Nebraska or the dictates of officials of the Corporation, again, Mr. Nelson defers to them. http://avalon.law.yale.edu/18th_century/declare.asp

Surely, if the enlightened thinkers who conceived and drafted the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution had intended to transfer any portion of the power of the people into the domain of the major political parties in this way, they would have mentioned political parties somewhere, anywhere in these auspicious documents. But they didn’t. The recent conduct of Senator Nelson points to prima facie evidence why.

Here are the voter registration numbers in the state of Nebraska in 2006, the year Mr. Nelson won his first re-election to the Senate, broken down by political affiliation: Republican Party, 578,888; Democratic Party, 371,110; nonpartisan, 184,150; Nebraska Party, 6,307; and Green Party, 361.

This means, 51% of Nebraska’s registered voters are Republican; and 33% are Democrat. In the 2006 mid-term election, with 99.9% of precincts reporting, the vote for U.S. Senate in Nebraska was
Nelson (D): 371, 777 64%
Ricketts (R): 211, 111 36%

In other words, Republicans voting in that race were underrepresented by 15%; and Democrats were overrepresented by 31%.

But this doesn’t mean that the voters of Nebraska similarly abandoned party lines in the other offices represented on the ballot. Republicans took all other races: Governor, Lt. Governor, Secretary of State, Attorney General, Treasurer, Auditor, and 3 U.S. Representative (3 (three) seats).

Either the overwhelmingly Republican voters of Nebraska really hated fellow Republican Mr. Ricketts or they loved Mr. Nelson.

However, when it comes to expressing support or rejection for this health insurance bill, the numbers in Nebraska become dramatically skewed.

In a poll posted on Weekly Standard on December 16, 2009 taken over the prior 2 (two) days, of 500 “likely voters,” respondents were asked this question:

“As you may know, there is likely to be a vote soon in the US Senate on President Obama’s health care plan. If Senator Ben Nelson votes in favor of this plan, would that make you more likely or les (sic) likely to support Senator Nelson when he runs for re-election?” 26 percent said “more likely;” 61 percent said “less likely;” 7 percent said “unsure;” and 6 percent said “no difference.”

In a poll conducted by the Tarrance Group on December 14 & 15, 67% of Nebraskans opposed the health insurance bill.
In general, do you favor or oppose President Obama’s plan to expand health care coverage to most Americans even if this plan increases the role of the federal government in health care and increases the cost of the deficit?
Favor/strongly 18%
Favor/somewhat 8%
Oppose/somewhat 7%
Oppose/strongly 60%
If Senator Nelson does vote in this way, would that make you more likely or less likely to support Senator Nelson when he runs for re-election?
Likely/strongly 10%
Likely/somewhat 12%
Less likely/somewhat 17%
Less likely/strongly 44%

What do all of these vote totals and polls mean? Well, they mean Nebraskans are overwhelmingly Republican notwithstanding they re-elected Ben Nelson, a Democrat, to a second term in the U.S. Senate in 2006. But these same voters have made unequivocally clear, if Mr. Nelson supports the health insurance bill, they will vote for someone else in 2012.

He is supporting the bill, anyway. After all, the people of Nebraska are not the boss of him; he works for the Corporation.

  1. I don’t trust people with toupees. Interesting poll results

    personal trainer austin tx: Welcome. Yes; I searched for a while to find sufficient ‘recent’ polls results to paint the accurate picture that while Nebraskans like Senator Nelson, they hate the health insurance bill even more. (Have you downloaded and filed a citizen complaint of election fraud against Boyd Richie, with the TX AG? The complaints are in the sidebar of the blog.) ADMINISTRATOR

  2. TeakWoodKite says:

    The over under is interesting.

    At somepoint the citizens of Nebraska will understand that the Senator is not doing them any favors or even his job.

    TWK: I know; and those R’s who won in 2006, won by substantial amounts. One of the points I think these numbers illustrate is that, the lone D among NE’s R elected officials is unilaterally imposing the will of the DNC Corporation on the whole state. Really disturbing. The cost of voting for a D candidate should not be so dear. ADMINISTRATOR

  3. Sherri says:

    “Senator DeMint’s amendment to ban vote-buying with earmarks fails, 53/46”

    Nelson has decided he likes being a whore and intends to protect his corner. He just needs to remember – that “change” he’s collecting from his Congressional johns belongs to the American people, the ones he is really screwing.

    Sherri: Welcome. I have to tell you, I thought about whether to edit out some of these words – the policy on this blog is, no name calling – but, after a 2nd and 3rd reading, I concluded the usage was wholly appropriate for the sentiments expressed. Here is a link to a good summary of these events. http://hotair.com/archives/2009/12/23/demints-amendment-to-ban-vote-buying-with-earmarks-fails-5346 ADMINISTRATOR

    Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz
    of Congressional District number 20 of Florida.
    jbjd-is there any way to send your entire package to this e-mail address or someone in Debbie’s District may be able to send?
    You may have seen Mrs. Wasserman Schultz on TV (curly blonde hair, spunky little thing), she is very smart, a hard worker, as far as I know NOT corrupt. She was recently diagnosed with cancer, but somehow managed to go to work every day. She is a true believer Democrat(Obama) but I doubt that she knows re: all the information that you uncovered regarding the fraud in the 08 election.

    Michelle: I recall during the primary, DWS suddenly was gung ho for BO. Then, she made fun of those people who would question his NBC status. I cannot imagine anything less than facing her own mortality would move her to even listen to his detractors. However, listen to this clip from an interview with Dylan Ratigan on MSNBC’s “Morning Meeting.” At one point, he provides figures on how much stock prices of health insurance companies have risen in just a couple of weeks in anticipation of this health bill that will compel people to purchase insurance but does very little to reform insurance monopolies. Ms. WS’s pat response was, “Because we are going to shift the insurance company focused health care reform system to a consumer focused system.” Mr. R said, ‘If you compel everyone to purchase insurance but do not break up the insurance oligopoly/monopoly then, this is a business driven system.’ Watch the clip. http://weblogs.sun-sentinel.com/news/politics/broward/blog/2009/12/debbie_wasserman_schultz_on_re_1.html

    Bottom line, if Ms. WS is still spouting this nonsense about the provisions on this bill, notwithstanding we (and obviously, Mr. R) know better; then, I don’t hold out much hope that she has reformed her thinking to reflect she works for the citizens of FL and not the DNC Services Corporation. Still, she must be made aware of the facts that concern her constituents, even if she chooses to ignore these. Of course, ignoring these facts will provide sound grounds to vote her out of office. ADMINISTRATOR

    P.S. I got several hits the other day from a site new to my blog. Turns out, people were clicking on a link you had posted. Thank you very much. We need to get the word out.

  5. Michelle says:

    jbjd-I’m so glad folks are going to your web-site and studying, I know how hard you have worked on this practically from the beginning.Rest assured wherever I see an opening to publish your information, I go for it. We were all very upset when people stole your information (uncredited) and put their own little twists on it. Not right, not nice. I saw very little during election cycle working 12 hour days at that time. I’m glad to see DWS is healthy from her cancer issues. Well sorry Debbie Wasserman Schultz, she really needs an education by jbjd, if she chooses to ignore it then the sin is on her soul. Due to her illness I was almost afraid to send it to her-I didn’t want to kill her. If I was in her position and received this information I would be shell-shocked.
    Since Debbie is highly educated I don’t think the part about the 9th graders “getting it” is going to go over well. Sure hope she has a sense of humor on that part.
    Watching Dylan (guys really get this stock market stuff), discussing issues with Debbie-just like watching my family get into it. They get heated, my nerves could never take that stuff.
    Let us hope Debbie does get with the program and supports our Constitution and her constituents.

    Michelle: People are working on several fronts to stem the horrendous legislation being foisted on an unwilling public by the DNC Services Corporation over the past year. The state A’sG in 10 (ten) states (as of last count) are exploring whether favoring NE in order to obtain Senator Nelson’s vote for the monstrous health insurance industry bill violated the Constitution. Citizens are contacting their federal elected officials by phone, fax, and email. People are marching in the streets.

    On the other hand, I wish that the people concerned as to whether BO is Constitutionally eligible for POTUS would consolidate their efforts to challenge one of the few laws that we can say with virtual certainty has been violated, namely, ballot laws in applicable states, which violation amounts to election fraud perpetrated by that same DNC Services Corporation. But they seem unwilling to abandon their pursuit of social security numbers which might be questionably assigned to anyone attached to BO (or MO); and 2nd and 3rd (and 4th…) hand statements from Kenyans that could be parsed to mean BO was born there; and court case after court case based on causes of action with no sound foundation in law but which keep the donations coming. Of course, none of these venues requires individual citizens to become knowledgeable about their government. No; just as they had allowed their power to be usurped by a political corporation that was better informed about how our government worked; they now hold up the ‘leaders’ of these various rescue schemes as their new saviors, instead of doing the work themselves.

    I think you are probably right to focus on these two articles, “OUT OF THE MOUTHS OF BABES” and “COUNSEL for DNC SERVICES CORPORATION PERFORMS 3 CARD MONTE* for FEDERAL COURT” to demonstrate the basic fraud to people still unaware how to ‘quantify’ what went wrong during the 2008 election and how to combat those events. (It still blows my mind that people still argue as to the validity of that on-line COLB even AFTER BO’s own attorney, Bob Bauer, has admitted to federal court Judge Robertson in Hollister, it means absolutely nothing, even refusing to mention its existence to the federal court, let alone submit such a document for in-court inspection.) How complicit in the fraud does the DNC Services Corporation paint itself when a full year after Mr. Bauer’s submissions to the federal court, they are still running ads directing people to go to FTS to see that COLB, which they still claim proves BO is (only a) native.

    But add to those 2 (two) articles, even 1 (one) of the citizen complaints. In fact, the A’sG from both SC and VA are among the state officials looking into the Constitutionality of Senator Nelson’s deals. We should step up sending these election fraud complaints to them; maybe now, they will be in a more receptive mood to listen.

    Finally, it’s nice that you are concerned as to the health of Rep. WS. However, setting aside for now any discussion as to whether she should step down if she is unable to represent her constituents; let me just point out, she looked pretty chipper on that news clip I posted. ADMINISTRATOR

  6. Eco Green says:

    An interesting article.
    Several items there are of great assistance, thanks.

    Eco Green: Welcome. Thanks; do you mean, several items in this one post or, on the blog? ADMINISTRATOR

  7. Michelle says:

    jbjd-You are correct. Debbie Wasserman Schultz looks like her health has returned so I hope the folks from her district send her the fraud material and cc: Florida’s A/G (just thought of that). I already sent Bill McCullum 2 seperate e-mailings of your material. My personal favorites are the Three Card Monte-and Out of the Mouth of Babes. I think most people can identify with a rigged card game, and 9th graders figured it out,once it was laid out in the order the crime(s) were committed. Don’t any of the politicans understand if they did this to Hillary, they can do it to anybody, as in Debbie you might be next? and who after you and on into infinity. Crazy
    My computer is acting goofy.

    Michelle: Too bad FL is not an applicable state. So many citizens like you willing to go the extra mile to inform your public officials where they went wrong. ADMINISTRATOR

  8. Michelle says:

    One thing we always learned at work, if you can’t go through the front door, there is always back door, side door etc. I’ll get your information out and credited (that’s very important to me). I don’t like educated people being hood-winked by a common ordinary South Side corrupt street thug. I’m from there I know of which I speak. Maybe Gov. Blago will turn states evidence. If Illinois applies, maybe Gov. Blago’s lawyer could use your material? I’ll have to ponder that.

    Michelle: Yes, and in fact, my advice as to how to proceed abides by your life rule. That is, instead of getting to BO’s Constitutional eligibility for POTUS by questioning that issue directly, I am proposing, given existing laws, the best way to reach the issue of eligibility is by challenging the basis on which various D’s Certified his eligibility to get state election officials to print his name on the ballot. That explains why I drafted those citizen complaints of election fraud to state A’sG.

    But why do you suppose so many people who are ostensibly trying to get to the heart of the eligibility issue, refuse to adopt this approach? Instead, in the absence of any evidence, they continue to insist BO is not a NBC, based on definitions of NBC not found in the Constitution or federal cases. That is, they make up the definition, insist he does not meet the definition, and call on everyone, from active military to the Chief Justice of the SCOTUS to somehow get BO out of the WH!

    On second thought, this approach sounds so absurd, maybe the people advocating this are actually working for BO, trying to discredit any opposition to him, however reasoned… ADMINISTRATOR

    P.S. Illinois is not an applicable state.

  9. Michelle says:

    jbjd-I just thought of this. Gov. Blago’s lawyer should be represtenting Blagos best interests.
    Qualifications for State Senator
    30 years old
    serve the state in which you live in
    US citizen for 9 years
    What if Obama did not fit the above? he should not have been serving in the Senate at all, wouldn’t that change the Blago case.
    In Illinois so many of our Governors, off to jail-during, after their “jobs” as Governors.

    Michelle: I cannot envision how BO’s unlawful status as a U.S. Senator could aid Gov. Blagojevich to defend against multiple indictments for federal corruption. http://archives.chicagotribune.com/2009/apr/03/nation/chi-blagojevich-indicted What did you have in mind? ADMINISTRATOR

  10. Michelle says:

    jbjd-They are putting the squeeze on Blago for all the corruption going on in Illinois-Daleys Office, Cook County Corruption-Obama and Jarrett’s South Side of Chicago ACORN corruption-Obama’s ties with half the group that already is in jail-the Fitzpatrick cases. My thinking is if Obama should have never been Senator in the first place could this help Blago-I think they are trying to make Blago take the rap for everything. This might make Blago flip ie. turn states evidence etc. Possibly Blago’s lawyer can make an issue of Obama’s ineligibility status???Presuming he has the best interests of his client at heart which is Blago. Sadly this is called institutionalized corruption in Chicago, not an understatement.

    Michelle: Of course, assuming Gov.B has info on BO, he could try to leverage that info for reduced charges. But I would assume that, any information which could be used for that purpose, is already in his possession. And whether he ‘flips’ is a decision he could have made at any time. We know as much about BO’s ineligibility as anyone else; by repeating facts already in the public domain, Gov.B can only call attention to information we have had for months. ADMINISTRATOR

  11. TeakWoodKite says:

    Hey jbjd, any comment ?

    Congressman Peter King, top republican on House Homeland Security Committee, says Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab should be tried by a military tribunal not in a civilian court.

    Ya think Holder will?


    TWK: What a mess! This Administration is so inept, I can envision a scenario in which the AG is compelled to advocate a jurisdiction based solely on whether the Defendant was properly Mirandized. In other words, if a civilian prosecution would likely fail because of the lack of routine protocols afforded suspects in more traditional police activities; the AG would advocate a military prosecution. But the standard for choice of forum should be determined only by the answer to one question: was the conduct an attack by an enemy combatant on the U.S.? If so then, this is a matter for the military. However, having already mischaracterized the attack by enemy combatants on the U.S. on 9/11; as meriting a civilian criminal prosecution in non-military courts; I cannot imagine that AG Holder will allow this current case to be adjudicated in a military tribunal. As for crediting any opinion from Rep. King, well, even if the D’s has been predisposed to hearing the R’s before Rep. King went on the air to lambaste Secretary Napolitano’s characterization that, in this latest case of terrorism, “the system worked”; surely, this vindictive Administration will afford the Rep. no such courtesy now. This is a mess.ADMINISTRATOR

  12. Sretno says:

    Nice Post, i will visit this site more often…
    thanks for the information from this web…

    Sretno: Welcome, and thank you. Have you read past posts? These spell out the fraud that occurred in the 2008 election and point to existing election laws (in applicable states) as the key to expose this fraud. ADMINISTRATOR

  13. HLC says:

    I noticed that a group of State Attorneys General have
    written a letter to Pelosi, et al threatening a suit
    if the Nebraska benefits aren’t changed or eliminated. I also noticed that Greg Abbott, AG of
    Texas was among them. I was one of the people that sent a complaint to his office earlier in the Fall about the ballot fraud by Pelosi and company. Maybe
    it might be time to remind him that this might have been headed off if he had had the courage to confront
    Pelosi back then, investigate and bring charges. Now it’s like closing the gate after the pigs got out, and will continue to be so…too little, too late.
    Is there a statute of limitations on the ballot fraud
    issue, although I guess that would be a state by state issue?

    HLC: Funny you should say this. Earlier yesterday, I left this comment on NoQuarter, in response to a post on the issue of the NE bribe, which included a video of AG McMaster from SC.

    A couple of points… The terms AG McMaster used – “rational basis”; and “capricious and arbitrary” – are terms of art. That is, the courts have ruled that government action is unConstitutional where it lacks a rational basis or is capricious and arbitrary.

    Both SC and VA are among the 10 states looking into the Constitutionality of the health insurance bill. Coincidentally, these are 2 of the states in which citizens have filed complaints of election fraud with A’sG, against various members of the DNC Services Corporation. Thus far, none of these A’sG, including Mr. McMaster, has responded to any of these citizen complaints.

    Maybe this provides a perfect opportunity to remind Mr. McMaster, he could resolve the current health insurance bill problem; by investigating charges of election fraud that occurred in the 2008 election. (In his state, SC, the fraud also occurred in the Presidential preference primary, since responding to the requirements of state law, D state party Treasurer Kathy Hensley wrote that Barack Obama was qualified for POTUS, on the list of primary candidates submitted by state party Chair Carol Fowler to election officials in that state. https://jbjd.wordpress.com/2009/10/10/if-it-looks-like-a-duck/ ) (The updated SC citizen complaint of election fraud to AG McMaster is in the sidebar of the blog.)

    The statute of limitations on criminal election fraud has at least another year to run.

  14. Michelle says:

    jbjd-“statute of limitations on criminal election fraud has at least another year to run”. If citizens filed complaints in applicable states which we know they have and the A/G’s do not do their jobs through investigation does that now make them co-conspirators in the election fraud? When did the clock start on election fraud?

    Michelle: The term statute of limitations refers to the time between the commission of the crime for which one is charged; and the official charging of the crime. So, election fraud would be calculated from the time the Certifications of Nomination were submitted to state election officials in applicable states; to the time the AG files formal charges with the court. However, the ultimate purpose of these citizen complaints is not to get the A’sG to prosecute the D Corporation for election fraud, notwithstanding I would hope this happens because I believe the Corporation broke the law; but to compel Congressional action on BO’s Constitutional ineligibility for the job of POTUS.

    So, once one state AG even asks the question of a member of the D Corporation and, receives the standard non-reply reply that other citizens received previously; this will get Congress’ attention. Because at that point, having had the fortitude to ask the question in the first place, that state elected official will have the motivation to announce to the world, look at what I did.

    As for your question whether inaction could be construed to make these A’sG co-conspirators, well, the laws in each state grant broad discretionary authority for prosecutors to determine whether to prosecute. ADMINISTRATOR
