Anthony List, the Minnesota Independent reports: To help stop the Democrats’ health care bill, through the power of fasting and intercessionary prayer.

Barack Obama and his step-grandmother Sarah Hussein Obama

Although no other evidence has surfaced placing Barack Obama’s mother in Kenya at the time of the president’s birth, a taped telephone conversation in which his Kenyan step-grandmother purportedly claims he was born in the coastal city of Mombasa has become an Internet hit since its submission as evidence in a lawsuit challenging the president’s eligibility.

Philip J. Berg, a former Pennsylvania deputy attorney general, included a transcript of the tape and sworn affidavits in a filing with the U.S. Supreme Court after lower courts dismissed as frivolous his Aug. 21, 2008, complaint alleging Obama was born in Mombasa.

In December 1917 Bolshevik Russian leaders, including one of the founders of Socialist thuggery Vladimir Lenin, established the Cheka—Russia’s first political secret police.  With almost unlimited power, the Cheka implemented “campaigns of terror” against the wealthy, land owners and those who opposed Lenin and Bolshevism.  !n 1922, once most of Russia’s opposition to their new absolute rulers had lessened, the Cheka was disbanded.

However, under the singularly oppressive Josef Stalin, Cheka was reinstated and ultimately renamed “The People’s Commissariat for Internal Affairs” (NKVD) and what would be known as Stalin’s “Great Terror of the 1930s began.

Obama is The Wolf that’s come to life from the Coat of Arms wolf in sheep’s clothing on the The Fabian Window, treasured symbol of the Fabian Society restored to display in the Shaw Library at the London School of Economics in 2006 after its disappearance by a mysterious theft in 1978.

Liberals will tell you they believe in free speech but have justified silencing conservatives by calling it hate speech.  Once you can degrade a group or their speech to being hateful, then its easy to justify to the party faithful, that it is entirely justified to silence such people or talk.  Not only is this logic scary but it’s dangerous to the very freedom on which our country was founded.

Ongoing attempts have been made to silence talk radio.  Rush Limbaugh, Sara Palin among others has been attacked as hateful and now the left is attempting to intimidate advertisers of the Glenn Beck show into stopping their advertising.  This left wing campaign is being orchestrated by a group started by Obama’s Green Jobs Czar, Van Jones.  Strangely this attack occurred after Glen Beck aired several segments on his show that were very critical of both the Obama administration and Van Jones in particular.

Glenn Beck used his popular Fox News show this afternoon to attack the background of Van Jones, a White House environmental advisor who co-founded an African American political advocacy group that organized an advertising boycott of his program.

During his 2 p.m. PDT show, Beck did not address the boycott spearheaded by Color of Change to protest the talk show host’s remark last month that he believes President Obama is “a racist.”

      - Why won’t member of Congress read the bills
      before they vote on them?

      - Why are citizens mocked and laughed at
      when they ask their congressman
      – Was the cash-for-clunkers program meant to save the earth or the economy?
      Did it accomplish either?

      - How did Van Jones, a self-proclaimed communist

Dr. Obama and the Hypocrite’s Oath
The American Thinker ^ | August 25, 2009 | Monte Kuligowski

Posted on Tuesday, August 25, 2009 5:27:00 AM by Scanian

President Obama’s preferred method of implementing his leftist agenda is to rush emergency, must-sign-yesterday bills through Congress. Forget about reading the legislation. Just trust Obama, Pelosi, Reid, Schumer and Barney Frank with the details.

The problem with this method is that when the details finally come out, it’s too late for the people to do anything about it. President Obama’s preferred method naturally fosters frustration and anger. Due to the economic “crisis,” Obama and the far left element of the Democrat Party had to pass an emergency stimulus spending plan before anyone had time to read it. Afterwards, the public learned that the bulk of the emergency bill to save the economy in 2009 would not be implemented until 2010 and beyond. As the public learns of the legislation’s massive waste and cronyism it is becoming apparent that the so-called stimulus was more about stimulating the power of the left than the economy.

A NATION DECEIVED

By Lynn Stuter
August 25, 2009
NewsWithViews.com

Recently, World Net Daily published an article about Also Known As (AKA) Obama’s MySpace.com webpage. On that page, Obama’s age is listed as 52.

Why is this relevant?

Well, first of all, when was Obama really born? Was he born in 1961 as the pictures of the Certification of Live Birth (COLB) published by pro-AKA websites claim? Or was he born earlier or even later?

Of course, the answer to these questions is that we don’t know. On July 27, 2009, Chiyome Fukino, Director, Department of Health, Hawaii, stated, in a press release,

“I, Dr. Chiyome Fukino, Director of the Hawai’i State Department of Health, have seen the original vital records maintained on file for the Hawai’i State Department of health verifying Barack Hussein Obama was born in Hawai’i and is a natural-born American citizen. I have nothing further to add to this statement or my original statement in October 2008 over eight months ago.”

Unfortunately, Fukino misspoke. Historically, a natural born citizen is one born of two American parents within the United States (Vattel’s Law of Nations, Section 212). As AKA has himself acknowledged, his mother was American, his father a British subject. Where he was actually born is not known. What his actual citizenship was and is, although he claims he was a dual citizen, is also not known. The only people with dual citizenship, however, eligible to the office of president, under Article II, Section I, Clause 5, United States Constitution, were the Founding Fathers of which AKA is not one.

The Internet has been burning up for months with this question: Will there be forced vaccinations for the H1N1 ‘swine flu’? The WHO (World Health Organization) has been making splashy headlines about a “coming pandemic” that will dwarf anything seen in the history of the world! Who gives a tinker’s damn what the WHO says? The big shots in the WHO with a banana republic mentality, actually think they have the authority to dissolve sovereign governments over a pandemic!

If the Mohave Daily News has this right, Arizona Rep. Trent Franks of Texas is very much on board:

The other main issue dealt with numerous speakers questioning Obama’s birth certificate and why there wasn’t an investigation into whether he is a naturalized citizen. One woman said a newspaper announcement of his birth in Hawaii was not sufficient. Another asked how he could have a passport without a birth certificate.

Franks said there was not enough evidence that Obama is not an American citizen. He did say there was a lot of conflicting evidence of Obama’s citizenship and that he was considering filing a lawsuit, the only congressman to do so. Franks asked why the president did not simply produce a birth certificate.

KINGMAN – A big, boisterous crowd largely supported an Arizona Congressman, who lambasted the Democratic president and his policies.

Rep. Trent Franks, a Republican representing Arizona’s 2nd Congressional District that includes Mohave County, held a town hall meeting Saturday afternoon at a jammed-packed Kingman church.

Franks started the town hall off by showing a half-hour video on the country’s missile defense system. The movie warned of threats of a missile attack by rogue nations such as North Korea and Iran and the need to protect the country with a missile defense shield.

Franks then criticized President Barack Obama on every issue starting with the president’s lack of understanding of the threat by terrorists to launch an attack against the United States. The conservative Republican also said he voted against the federal stimulus bill and the Cash for Clunkers program, which he said benefited foreign car makers. He also said it would take 34,000 years to pay off the debt that Obama is accruing.

The Wall Street Journal just published a shocking editorial written by a respected University President, confirming the Obama Administration is now using VA hospitals to order doctors to pressure all military veterans to sign “pull the plug” do-not-resuscitate orders, hastening their premature deaths through mandatory “end of life” counseling.

President Jim Towey of Saint Vincent’s College, founder of the non-profit “Aging With Dignity” and former White House Director of faith based initiatives, wrote a blistering expose entitled “The Death Book For Veterans,” revealing President Obama’s new Veterans Administration (VA) directive, presumably signed by VA Secretary, General (ret.) Eric Shinseki, which mandates all veterans’ primary care physicians must graphically discuss “end of life planning” with all VA patients (not merely those nearing death), and must refer them to “Your Life, Your Choices,” a book that openly encourages Euthanasia and was written with guidance from the group formerly known as the Hemlock Society. That same pro-suicide group now boasts on their web-site of directly leading the charge to ensure “end of life counseling” is mandated in the Obamacare bill, HR 3200.

First step: no one makes you angry, you get angry. The anger is yours to own, control, or unleash. You own the emotion. That’s not judgmental, it’s where the anger resides. What you do with it is what I hope we can address today.

Of all the outside-the mainstream notions I’ve posited on this blog, the one that annoys the most people is my suggestion that the CIA recruited young Barack Obama during his days at Occidental College. I would further suggest that the Agency link runs in the family. I believe that, at an earlier time, the Agency (or some other branch of the intelligence community) may have recruited his mother, Ann Dunham.

“Send a warrior to Congress.”

“Does this look like a Rino?”

In the battleground of American political power, candidates for office tend to use every weapon at their disposal to be heard above the din.

Now, a U.S. Marine who helped lead the initial charge into Iraq to oust Saddam Hussein is taking that approach literally by brandishing his M-16 assault rifle in some eye-catching campaign fundraising ads.

“I’m taking full credit for that,” says 28-year old Jesse Kelly of Tucson, Ariz., a Republican seeking to boot Democrat Gabrielle Giffords from the U.S. House of Representatives. “If you’re not going to get anyone’s attention, you might as well not waste your time or money.”

Kelly, who is married and has a 9-month-old son, is splashing his spots across the Internet on high-profile sites such as the Drudge Report, and offering no apologies about the weapon imagery.

“I think people understand fully well that I’m serving my country,” he said. “I’m in Iraq at war for my nation. I’m not posing in my bedroom with a gun.”

CAMPS FOR DISSIDENTS READIED

Congressmen, authors, patriots warn FEMA camp system in place

rss202
By Victor Thorn

There exists an explosive hot-button issue that U.S. government officials dont want revealed to the American public; namely, that internment camps have been establishedand are at the ready to detain citizens if mass insurrections occur. Under FEMAs National Level Exercise 2009 (NLE 09), potential trigger events could be economic collapse, widespread bank closures, massive social unrest (possibly due to proof that Barack Obama is not natural-born), or a flu pandemic.

This final item led Rep. Paul Broun (R-Ga.) to declare on August 11 that the government might use a pandemic disease or national disaster as an excuse to declare martial law.

Renowned researcher Michel Chossudovsky addressed the mechanics of this subject in a March 19 article entitled, Preparing for Civil Unrest in America: Legislation to Establish Internment Camps on U.S. Military Bases:

How will the U.S. government face an impending social catastrophe? The chosen avenue, inherited from the outgoing Bush administration, is the reinforcement of the Homeland Security apparatus and the militarization of civilian state institutions.

Are Army bases actually being converted into detainment camps? In his September 2008 newsletter, Rep. Ron Paul (R-Tex.) pulled no punches. Even though we know that detention facilities are already in place, [the government] now wants to legalize the construction of FEMA camps on military installations using the ever-popular excuse that the facilities are for the purposes of a national emergency.

The first chapters of Tom T Gradeczek’s new novel, The Physics of Crime are now available online. Although more well known for Tom’s efforts to describe the FBI cover-up of high level crimes by FBI Special Agent/Directors and how seething WW2 NAZIS masterminded the Oklahoma City Bombing (at http://waiting4johndoe2.tripod.com/book.html , with its sample chapter describing an extra American witness to the escape of John Doe #2 to Europe within 24 hours of the Oklahoma City Bombing) Tom discovered he could put 75,000 words together to make novels, using the right material. So check it out.

As the title implies, this book has way too many guns (the main character carries 5 firearms [for good reason], [HEY, BALLISTICS is PHYSICS TOO, radiation detectors, computers, tracking and surveillance devices, and much more PHYSICS]). There is also way too many gory murders (at least 7), the killing of (A)corrupt government officials, (B)illegal alien traffickers and (C)drug dealers, and only 4 full chapters of heterosexual sex (out of 20, which seems reasonable)

You scare me because after months of exposure, I know nothing about you.

What REALLY Happened at Obama’s Montana Town Hall

What REALLY Happened at Obama’s Montana Town Hall
Confidential Friend ^ | 8-21-2009 | Unk

Posted on Saturday, August 22, 2009 12:42:25 PM by Danae

This is a real letter a very good friend of mine got from a friend of hers who attended the Town Hall in Montana. Neither wanted to have their names on the internet and I am respecting that. Given what this former Obama supporter(yea really, and she was pretty hard core over the moon for Obama as well) I take her account even more seriously.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Hello All,

By now you have probably heard that President Obama came to Montana last Friday. However, there are many things that the major news has not covered. I feel that since XXXXX and I live here and we were at the airport on Friday I should share some facts with you. Whatever you decide to do with the information is up to you. If you chose to share this email with others I do ask that you DELETE my email address before you forward this on.

On Wednesday, August 5th it was announced locally that the President would be coming here. There are many groups here that are against his healthcare and huge spending so those groups began talking and deciding on what they were going to do. The White House would not release ANY details other than the date.

On about Tuesday XXXXX found out that they would be holding the “Town Hall” at the airport. (This is only because XXXXXX knows EVERYONE at the airport) Our airport is actually located outside of Belgrade (tiny town) in a very remote location. Nothing is around there. They chose to use a hangar that is the most remotely located hangar. You could not pick a more remote location, and you can not get to it easily. It is totally secluded from the public.

FYI: We have many areas in Belgrade and Bozeman which could have held a large amount of folks with sufficient parking. (gymnasiums/auditoriums). All of which have chairs and tables, and would not have to be SHIPPED IN!! $$$$$

During the week, cargo by the TONS was being shipped in constantly. Airport employees could not believe how it just kept coming. Though it was our President coming several expressed how excessive it was, especially during a recession. $$$$$

A Better Way to Go Postal ( Eliminate USPS First-Class Mail Monopoly )
THE WALL STREET JOURNAL ^ | AUGUST 22, 2009 | staff

Posted on Saturday, August 22, 2009 9:46:39 AM by kellynla

Whatever possessed President Obama to mention the travails of the post office while discussing health care the other day, his timing was certainly apt. The Postal Service is headed toward a loss of $7 billion this year and another $7 billion in 2010. Naturally, Congress is planning another bailout rather than the kind of reform that would recognize how technology has transformed modern communications.

Most mail today is delivered electronically via email. Traditional postal mail volume has fallen by nearly 20% since 2000, and the average household gets one-third fewer letters than a decade ago. But this is only the first stage of the decline. The transition to Internet communications means that the Postal Service’s core business—from paying bills, to sending birthday greetings, to delivering magazines—is slowly vanishing. This is on top of the package business that has already been transformed by Federal Express and UPS.

Not that the Postal Service has ever been a paragon of efficiency. If the cost of a postage stamp had risen at merely the rate of inflation since 1950 when a stamp cost two cents, today you could send a first-class letter for 30 cents. Instead the cost rose in May to 44 cents from 42 cents.

German health expert’s swine flu warning Does virus vaccine increase the risk of cancer?

German health expert’s swine flu warning Does virus vaccine increase the risk of cancer?

21.08.2009 – 12:33 UHR

The swine flu vaccine has been hit by new cancer fears after a German health expert gave a shock warning about its safety.

Wolfgang Wodarg

Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg is a politician and a specialist in lungs, hygiene and environmental medicine. He is the chairman of the health committee in the German parliament and European Council.

Lung specialist Wolfgang Wodarg has said that there are many risks associated with the vaccine for the H1N1 virus.

He has grave reservations about the firm Novartis who are developing the vaccine and testing it in Germany. The vaccination is injected “with a very hot needle”, Wodarg said.

The nutrient solution for the vaccine consists of cancerous cells from animals and “we do not know if there could be an allergic reaction”.

But more importantly, some people fear that the risk of cancer could be increased by injecting the cells.

The vaccine – as Johannes Löwer, president of the Paul Ehrlich Institute, has pointed out – can also cause worse side effects than the actual swine flu virus.

Wodrag also described people’s fear of the pandemic as an “orchestration”: “It is great business for the pharmaceutical industry,” he told the ‘Neuen Presse’.

…Many people say if Obama has problems with his constitutional qualifications the Clintons would have made it know. Would they now? The reason why the Clintons did not push the constitutionally disqualifying evidence of Barack Hussein Obama II is simply because they were being set up to be racists. This happened early on and continues to this day. Anyone who disagrees with the One is a racist, and an infidel. Perhaps Hillary is reminding us what her husband Bill said, when it became apparent that the undemocratic Democratic party aligned the elites behind Obama against the majority of popular votes Hillary achieved.

The Perfect Manchurian Candidate ~ John S. Torell

During World War II, some American soldiers were captured in the Pacific and taken to the province of Manchuria (part of China) by the Japanese military command.  There they were exposed to tremendous torture and brainwashing, also known as “mind control.” The Japanese were not the only ones engaged in this terrible crime against human beings.

The Soviets and the Germans had their programs, so did the British at Tavistock and the Americans at Fort Dietrich, outside Washington D.C.

In 1945, when the war was over, certain groups within the American intelligence operation decided to bring as many German scientists, engineers and intelligence personnel as possible to the United States in a secret project known as “Operation Paper Clip.”[1] This program was run by a secret unit of the CIA and one of the goals was to perfect a program, where a person could be taken as a young child and then by splitting the young child’s personality into multiple personalities, a secret coded message could be planted deep within the brain that would be activated using certain memory triggers by the handlers. Captured enemy soldiers are also used in this kind of human abuse.

During my years as a pastor I have run across several people who had been exposed to this type of mind control and it was very hard to help them to be set free from the controls that were placed in them.

Days Away From Economic Chaos?

by Bill Sardi

Recently by Bill Sardi: Americans Are Vitamin C Deficient

America is just a few days away from a possible day of reckoning. I again call attention to this day, August 25, when the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation issues its 2nd Quarter report for 2009 on the state of health of American banks.

It has not particularly alarmed Americans that its growth and prosperity have been built upon debt. The American public is a bit desensitized, particularly since the Y2K threat fizzled. We must wait and see how Americans respond to the upcoming FDIC report.

The following charts tell the story. There are roughly 8400 American banks that set aside a small portion of their profits to aggregately insure bank depositors should their local bank fail. A plethora of bank failures has depleted the FDIC reserve fund from $52.8 billion in 2008 to $13 billion in the 1st Quarter of 2009. (See chart below)

Obama’s Congress Vows Forceful Takeover of American People Imminent
By Sher Zieve

Since the 2006 Congressional elections—when leftist Democrats took over the majority of both the US House of Representatives and Senate—the dye was cast for the takeover of the lives of the American people.  Then, the Dictator-in-Chief Barack Hussein Obama was placed into the office of the presidency.  At that point, the Democrats had two of the three branches of government in their greased pockets.  Obama vowed to push all of his Socio-fascist programs through, despite any and all opposition.  And he and his minions are now pushing as hard and as fast as they can.  The current forceful pushes are firmly against the American people.

History Unfolding
Historic City ^ | August 21, 2009 | David Kaiser

I am a student of history. Professionally, I have written 15 books on history that have been published in six languages, and I have studied history all my life.

I have come to think there is something monumentally large afoot, and I do not believe it is simply a banking crisis, or a mortgage crisis, or a credit crisis. Yes these exist, but they are merely single facets on a very large gemstone that is only now coming into a sharper focus.

Something of historic proportions is happening. I can sense it because I know how it feels, smells, what it looks like, and how people react to it. Yes, a perfect storm may be brewing, but there is something happening within our country that has been evolving for about ten to fifteen years. The pace has dramatically quickened in the past two.

DeMint And Bachmann Call On States To Collectively Fight ObamaCare If Passed
TPM ^ | 8/21/09 | Eric Kleefield

Posted on Friday, August 21, 2009 1:18:56 PM by pissant

Here’s another fun detail from last night’s Americans For Prosperity teletown hall, which featured Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC) and Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN). Both politicians said that if a health care bill passes, it should be actively fought and resisted through a collective effort of conservative governors.

A caller asked DeMint what the states could do in order to stop unconstitutional action by the federal government on health care. DeMint replied, “I think the key to pushing back against the federal government is some governors and state legislators who champion individual freedom.”

DeMint said he would love to see states go to court to invoke the Tenth Amendment: “If we had some states come together and say the only way to save this country is to push back.” He also added: “I think you’ll see some states say no more, we’re not going down with the federal government.”

It is a chilling question and one that has been troubling me for about two weeks. I read the “low grade civil war” phrase as a declarative statement from a commenter on a news story about the Congressional Town Hall meetings and it has been rattling in my brain ever since.

I’ve been wanting to post about this question and today seemed like the right time since now I’m not the only one worried about this question. In today’s Washington Times, actor/activist Jon Voight makes this statement:

“There’s a real question at stake now. Is President Obama creating a civil war in our own country?” Mr. Voight tells Inside the Beltway.

“We are witnessing a slow, steady takeover of our true freedoms. We are becoming a socialist nation, and whoever can’t see this is probably hoping it isn’t true. If we permit Mr. Obama to take over all our industries, if we permit him to raise our taxes to support unconstitutional causes, then we will be in default. This great America will become a paralyzed nation.”

“Do not let the Obama administration fool you with all their cunning Alinsky methods. And if you don’t know what that method is, I implore you to get the book ‘Rules for Radicals,’ by Saul Alinsky . Mr. Obama is very well trained in these methods.”

This is another important story being smothered by the Democrat controlled media.

The Obama administration has quietly announced there will be no raise in social security payments next year and maybe not until 2012, a presidential election year.

Citing a 2008 third quarter cost of living decline, Congress has voted no cost of living increase in next year’s Social Security checks for the first time since 1973.

Gunny G: Marine Richard Keech Family Needs Help…

August 20, 2009 3 comments

Some of you folks who have been on my e-mail list and/or who have browsed my websites since about 1998 will recognize the name of Richard Keech. But most of you will not know of him.

Richard was a pre–World War Two China Marine and his unit was sent to the Philippines (from China) a few weeks prior to the fall of Corregidor. When Corregidor fell he became a prisoner of the Japanese along with many others. The remainder of WWII was spent in a POW camp in Japan. After the war, Richard returned home, went to college, married and raised a family, and became a productive citizen, as they say.

Freemasonry’s Hidden Homosexual Agenda

(Left, Albert Pike 1809-1891)

By “Heterosexuals for a Moral Environment”

(I didn’t write this article but  it inspired a “eureka” moment. Of course! This explains why so many politicians are gay, and why homosexuality is being foisted on us. I edited a bit. -HM)

The esoteric all-male group known as Freemasonry (or Masonry) has been controversial for many many years, and has been connected to  homosexuality for many years by a number of researchers. “Why?” you may ask.

Albert Pike reached the highest level of Scottish Rite Freemasonry (the 33rd degree), was himself a prolific author of numerous works on Freemasonry. Various quotes from one of his books, Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, probably Pike’s magnum opus, will be featured here.

The Whites of Their Lies – ALAN KEYES
Loyal to Liberty ^ | August 20, 2009 | Alan Keyes

Posted on Thursday, August 20, 2009 2:29:14 PM by EternalVigilance

The Obama faction’s drive to consolidate totalitarian, national, socialist control of key sectors of American life is stirring up some strong negative feelings in many Americans. The self-righteous, ‘How-dare-you-question-me’ tone in which many Obama faction pols have lashed out at critics has aggravated their resentment. So have the bully-boy tactics intended to discourage people from attending public meetings to voice their concerns.

If the Obama faction’s strategists thought these tactics would make Americans whimper and scurry back to their hidey-holes, they were sadly mistaken. Americans can be ferrets when it comes to truth, but some are more like mountain lions when roused to battle by tyrannical bullies. In the landscape of twentieth century history, pillars of smoke rising from the ruins of their would-be empires mark the burned out pyres of tyrant –isms and self-worshiping individuals who made the same mistake.

This history is so well known though, that I find it hard to believe the Obama strategists failed to take account of it. On the contrary, the deployment of SEIU blue-shirts and tax-funded ACORN rent-a-crowds is intended to provoke a John Wayne reaction. The ensuing brawl becomes their excuse to abuse the color of law in order to move against and criminalize their opposition. In their so-called ‘hate-crimes’ legislation they have already successfully positioned the logic of repression that will allow them to argue that any criticism of their actions or policies is part of a syndrome of violence that makes dissident speech as criminal as the actions they will claim it inspires.

Glenn Beck Off This Week: Vacation or Something More?

Posted on Thursday, August 20, 2009 1:23:50 PM by rightwingintelligentsia

First on TVNewser: Tipsters inside Fox News tell us Glenn Beck’s vacation this week from his Fox News show was not planned. We hear Beck was told to take this week off to let some of the heat surrounding him die down. That heat began July 28 on “Fox & Friends” when Beck said he thought Pres. Obama has “a deep-seated hatred for white people,” adding, “This guy is, I believe, a racist.”

In the days and weeks that followed an organization called ColorofChange.org mobilized an effort to get advertisers to pull their spots from Beck’s show. Earlier this month, a Fox News spokesperson told TVNewser that the advertisers simply moved their spots from Beck to other programs, “so there has been no revenue lost.”

OK, here it is Tuesday and time to continue this discussion. Since I’ve heard nothing to the contrary in the comments you have been kind enough to make to me, I am presuming agreement on the purpose of the Constitution and the definition of rights.

What I HAVE heard from you is along the lines of “What do we do next?” and “How can I help?” In my mind, and as a reader passed on to me, in others’ minds as well, the Founders provided essentially four boxes for us to open as needed to protect our Republic and our Constitution.

Interview with AR-15-Toting Protester at Obama Rally was Staged
08-19-2009 Phoenix Nude Times
In case you missed it, about a dozen men with guns showed up at an Obama healthcare rally in Phoenix this Monday, at least one of them carrying a semi-automatic rifle.

The man packing the AR-15 (a really big gun)–identified only as “Chris B”–was interviewed by libertarian radio show host and publisher of libertarian site Freedoms Phoenix Ernie Hancock (pictured, who was also carrying a gun at the time of the interview). When asked why he was carrying a weapon, Chris B. responded, “Because I can do it. In Arizona, I still have some freedoms.”

Chris B. also said that he “always carried a gun,” except when showering, of course, when he’d “put it on the sink.”

Eeek.

As it turns out, the entire interview was staged by Hancock, a long-time acquaintance of “Chris B,” whom he’d met while working on presidential hopeful Ron Paul’s campaign.

Thought Police: Mother Arrested For Blogging About Cops

August 19, 2009 By: Freedom Fighter Category: Uncategorized

Source: Washington Post

A 34-YEAR-OLD woman, the mother of a 12-year-old girl, has been locked up in a Virginia jail for three weeks and could remain there for at least another month. Her crime? Blogging about the police.

Elisha Strom, who appears unable to make the $750 bail, was arrested outside Charlottesville on July 16 when police raided her house, confiscating notebooks, computers and camera equipment. Although the Charlottesville police chief, Timothy J. Longo Sr., had previously written to Ms. Strom warning her that her blog posts were interfering with the work of a local drug enforcement task force, she was not charged with obstruction of justice or any similar offense. Rather, she was indicted on a single count of identifying a police officer with intent to harass, a felony under state law.

Impending Bank Holiday – The Collapse of The US Dollar

This Bank Holiday is no ‘Holiday’ at all, but one similar to that engineered by FDR in March, 1933 which finished the collapse of the World’s economy. Another forced “bank holiday” will likely lead to a formal devaluation of the already broadsided U.S. dollar. But devalue against what? The euro? Doubtful. Gold? Maybe, but highly doubtful – or, devalued against the IMF basket of currencies, which is more likely. When I posed the question of the actual reality of such an event occurring to several of my sources including those within several Federal Agencies (CIA, FBI, Attorney Generals office, DHS) I received the following statement almost verbatim from each and every one of them – “The way it will come down is that starting 8/24, no later than Labor Day, groups of banks will be closed in certain regions of the country for a week or so. They will open again, and then other groups of banks in different regions will be closed; and on and on it will go, until all the banks in the country have gone through that process.

GOP Should Shut Down Senate If Dems Use Procedural Tactic to Ram Through Health-Care Bill, Says Conservative Leader
Thursday, August 20, 2009
By Pete Winn, Senior Writer/Editor
(CNSNews.com) – Conservative leader Gary Bauer warned Wednesday that Democratic leaders in Congress will try to ram through their unpopular health-care reform plan later this fall, employing a little-used tactic first conceived as a way to maneuver around the budget deficit battles of the 1980s.

“I’m afraid that they (Democratic leaders) will do it because I’m convinced that the people running America are intent on changing America in ways that will not be reversible,” Bauer told CNSNews.com.

The tactic, known as “reconciliation,” is designed to get around the filibuster, a Senate procedure used to prevent the majority from running roughshod over the minority.

“When you have a filibuster, it takes 60 Senate votes to pass something,” Bauer said. “The Democrats don’t have 60 votes that they can count on for the health-care bill, making reconciliation all the more likely,” Bauer said.
