Barack Obama to host first state dinner in huge tent A huge tent has been pitched on the White House lawn to accommodate 400 guests at Barack Obama’s first state dinner.
By Toby Harnden in Washington Published: 10:43PM GMT 23 Nov 2009
An invitation to the event on Tuesday evening has become the most sought-after ticket in the US.
The event, in honour of the visiting Indian prime minister, Manmohan Singh, is a chance for Mr Obama and his wife Michelle to welcome the Washington elite – and a smattering of Hollywood celebrities – into their new home.

But he’s not “us.” I won’t go so far as to say that “he’s ‘them’,” because that always degenerates into a discussion of who “them” really are, but Simpson did a nice job of helping clear up the identification.
“President Obama is not trying to lead America forward to recovery, prosperity and strength. Quite the opposite, in fact. … Obama and the Democrats are overwhelming political opposition to their plans with a flood of apocalyptic legislation. Their ultimate goal is to leave us so discouraged, demoralized, and exhausted that we throw our hands up in defeat. As Barney Frank said, ‘the middle class will be too distracted to fight.’ These people are our enemies. They don’t use guns, yet, but they are just as dangerous, determined, and duplicitous as the communists we faced in the Cold War, Korea, Vietnam, and bush wars across the globe, and the Nazis we faced in World War II.”
Yep. That’s who our enemy is. Now, what do we do about it?
“Every single citizen who cares about this country should be spending every minute of his or her spare time lobbying, organizing, writing, and planning. Fight every initiative they launch. It is all destructive. If we are to root out this evil, it is critical that in 2010 we elect competent, principled leaders willing to defend our Constitution and our country. Otherwise, the malevolent cabal that occupies the government today will become too entrenched.”
Re “Some of you don’t want to receive these emails from me, or see what is happening right before your eyes…”
Email from a close friend that I received this morning.
Some of you don’t want to receive these emails from me, or see what is happening right before your eyes, and for that I feel very sorry for those. Those same people wanted hope and change so badly that they forgot to find out exactly what that hope and change was. Now we are finding out. This is a letter, below, written to the Obama, by a retired sailor. I believe that this man says what so many of us are feeling. Read it and see what you think.
You all know how we feel about this administration, but If after reading this letter to Obama, you still refuse to pull your head out of ….. the sand, then when your aged relative is denied health care to save his or her life, when you are taxed so heavily that you have to give up your home, or when terrorists acts continue to happen on our soil, we will know who to thank, YOU. If you don’t believe me, just wait.
This was checked on Snopes, but they didn’t have anything on it. So someone Googled this man’s name and he is who he says he is. I’m so glad that there are those out there who are speaking out and saying what we feel and think.
One thing I want to say to everyone, there is a fallacy out there that we are a Democracy, we are not, We are a Republic. Look it up. What is the difference….. A Democracy is the Government telling us, we the people, what we have to do. A Republic is the people telling the Government what to do. That’s why the Declaration of Independence says, “We The People”.
There is a good book out there that everyone should read. It’s called “the 5000 year leap by W. Cleon Skousen.”
I checked Snopes and found nothing so I used Google and this WWII sailer is who the letter says he is.
Subject: WWII Battleship sailor tells Obama to shape up or ship out!
This venerable and much honored WW II vet is well known in Hawaii for his seventy-plus years of service to patriotic organizations and causes all over the country. A humble man without a political bone in his body, he has never spoken out before about a government official, until now.
He dictated this letter to a friend, signed it and mailed it to the president.
Dear President Obama,
My name is Harold Estes, approaching 95 on December 13 of this year. People meeting me for the first time don’t believe my age because I remain wrinkle free and pretty much mentally alert.
I enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1934 and served proudly before, during and after WW II retiring as a Master Chief Bos’n Mate. Now I live in a “rest home” located on the western end of Pearl Harbor, allowing me to keep alive the memories of 23 years of service to my country.
One of the benefits of my age, perhaps the only one, is to speak my mind, blunt and direct even to the head man.
So here goes. I am amazed, angry and determined not to see my country die before I do, but you seem hell bent not to grant me that wish.
I can’t figure out what country you are the president of.
You fly around the world telling our friends and enemies despicable lies like:
“We’re no longer a Christian nation;” “America is arrogant” – (Your wife even announced to the world: “America is mean-spirited.” Please tell her to try preaching that nonsense to 23 generations of our war dead buried all over the globe who died for no other reason than to free a whole lot of strangers from tyranny and hopelessness.) I’d say shame on the both of you, but I don’t think you like America, nor do I see an ounce of gratefulness in anything you do, for the obvious gifts this country has given you. To be without shame or gratefulness is a dangerous thing for a man sitting in the White House.
After 9/11 you said,” America hasn’t lived up to her ideals.” Which ones did you mean? Was it the notion of personal liberty that 11,000 farmers and shopkeepers died for to win independence from the British? Or maybe the ideal that no man should be a slave to another man, that 500,000 men died for in the Civil War? I hope you didn’t mean the ideal 470,000 fathers, brothers, husbands, and a lot of fellas I knew personally died for in WWII, because we felt real strongly about not letting any nation push us around, because we stand for freedom.
I don’t think you mean the ideal that says equality is better than discrimination. You know the one that a whole lot of white people understood when they helped to get you elected.
Take a little advice from a very old geezer, young man.
Shape up and start acting like an American. If you don’t, I’ll do what I can to see you get shipped out of that fancy rental on Pennsylvania Avenue. You were elected to lead not to bow, apologize and kiss the hands of murderers and corrupt leaders who still treat their people like slaves.

SCANDAL! “This is Not A Smoking Gun” – It’s a “Mushroom Cloud”
Americans for Tax Reform ^ | Monday, November 23, 2009 | Tim Andrews

“This is not a smoking gun, this is a mushroom cloud” – That’s how world-renowned climatologist Patrick J. Michaels described revelations contained in a 61Mb ZIP file that shows the systematic attempts by climate “scientists” to lie, manipulate evidence, and go to extraordinary lengths to stop the publication of any information or data which did not support the man-made global warming theory. As Andrew Bolt puts it, this scandal could well be “the greatest in modern science”.
In this leaked files are 1079 emails and 72 documents that thoroughly expose the lie underpinning Al Gore’s “Inconvenient Truth”. Remember this, as Congress tries to ram the job-killing economy-destroying multi-billion-dollar-tax-hike called “cap & trade” down our throats – that it is all based on a lie, and this lie is being exposed….
Viscount Monckton on Global WarmingGate: ‘They Are Criminals’ (PJM Exclusive)
Pajamas Media ^ | Nov. 22 | Christopher Monckton

This is what they did — these climate “scientists” on whose unsupported word the world’s classe politique proposes to set up an unelected global government this December in Copenhagen, with vast and unprecedented powers to control all formerly free markets, to tax wealthy nations and all of their financial transactions, to regulate the economic and environmental affairs of all nations, and to confiscate and extinguish all patent and intellectual property rights.
The tiny, close-knit clique of climate scientists who invented and now drive the “global warming” fraud — for fraud is what we now know it to be — tampered with temperature data so assiduously that, on the recent admission of one of them, land temperatures since 1980 have risen twice as fast as ocean temperatures. One of the thousands of emails recently circulated by a whistleblower at the University of East Anglia, where one of the world’s four global-temperature datasets is compiled, reveals that data were altered so as to prevent a recent decline in temperature from showing in the record. In fact, there has been no statistically significant “global warming” for 15 years — and there has been rapid and significant cooling for nine years.

On Afghanistan, Palin says, W-like, that the president should simply give Gen. Stanley McChrystal a blank check. But Afghanistan is a wrenching decision, and we do need the closest exit ramp. So the president should get credit for standing back and studying the issue, and for not rubber-stamping the generals’ predictable urge to surge. But the way he has handled the perception part has allowed critics — including generals — to cast him as indecisive.
McChrystal and Gen. David Petraeus should have been giving their best advice to Obama — and airing their view against scaling down in Afghanistan — in confidence. Instead, McChrystal pushed his opinion in a speech in London, and Petraeus has discussed his feelings in private sessions with reporters. This creates a “Seven Days in May” syndrome, where the two generals are, in effect, lobbying against the president and undercutting him as he’s trying to make a painfully complex, life-and-death decision.

The Death Blow to Climate Science
By Dr. Tim Ball
Global Warming is often called a hoax. I disagree because a hoax has a humorous intent to puncture pomposity. In science, such as with the Piltdown Man hoax, it was done to expose those with fervent but blind belief. The argument that global warming is due to humans, known as the anthropogenic global warming theory (AGW) is a deliberate fraud. I can now make that statement without fear of contradiction because of a remarkable hacking of files that provided not just a smoking gun, but an entire battery of machine guns.
Europe is no longer Europe, it is Eurabia, a colony of Islam, where the Islamic invasion does not proceed only in a physical sense, but also in a mental and cultural sense. Servility to the invaders has poisoned democracy, with obvious consequences for the freedom of thought, and for the concept…of liberty.” — Oriana Fallaci Italian journalist/author/activist (1929-2006)
E.P.A and Gore seek to block passage of Senate Health Care Bill
By William Kevin Stoos
In a surprising move aimed at blocking the passage of the Mother of All Bills—a fifteen pound, 2,000 page, tree-killing, polar bear orphaning, ice melting, greenhouse gas producing monstrosity called the Senate Health Care Bill (aka “Obama Universal Coverage for Health, or, O.U.C.H)—EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson and Al (The Earth’s Core is Hotter than the Sun) Gore joined as Plaintiffs in a last minute attempt to block action on the bill this weekend. And, in order to publicize their attempt to block the legislation, they enlisted the help of the most trusted name in journalism and the man who has dined with Princes, Kings and Presidents, world traveler, and Head of the Environmental News Desk of Stoos Views’ media conglomerate, Hugh Betcha.
A Kodak Moment for the UK
By Jerry A. Kane
A criminal case involving a former soldier who found a shotgun in his yard and dutifully turned it over to the police proves that prosecutors and judges in the United Kingdom cannot administer justice or thoughtful discretion in the courts because they have succumbed to political correctness and the gun-control ideology embedded in UK law.

COUNTERINSURGENCY’S FUTURE IS IN AMERICA
November 23, 2009
For months we’ve heard about General McChrystal’s “counter-insurgency” strategy in Afghanistan, involving tens of thousands more troops. We’ve heard much less about the US government’s “counter-insurgency” strategy for America. But it’s America — not Afghanistan — where the strategy is already in place, and where the real action may take place.
According to one report, which documents the “unraveling” of US society, “the demand for guns and ammunition has hit a record high and the gun industry cannot produce enough bullets to keep up with orders. American’s are arming themselves to the teeth! In the past year, 100 new armed militia groups have been formed, as militia members have doubled in numbers. Federal authorities are gravely concerned about the “uptick in militia activities.” One federal authority recently said, “All it’s lacking is a spark. I think it’s only a matter of time before you see threats and violence.”

Obama’s Friend Ayers: Kill 25 Million Americans (People who can’t be “re-educated”- Video)
New American ^ | 10-31-08 | William F. Jasper
Posted on Sunday, November 22, 2009 10:43:48 PM by sadsacke
Larry Grathwohl was one of the experts/witnesses we interviewed for the documentary. He had been undercover inside the Weather Underground and had worked closely with Ayers, Dohrn, and their fellow terrorists. I asked, “Well what is going to happen to those people we can’t reeducate, that are diehard capitalists?” And the reply was that they’d have to be eliminated.
And when I pursued this further, they estimated they would have to eliminate 25 million people in these reeducation centers.
And when I say “eliminate,” I mean “kill.”

The Fort Hood terror attack that killed 13 adults and an unborn child and left dozens injured was the first such radical Islamic assault on United States soil since Sept. 11, 2001.
Now the producers of the startling documentary “TheThird Jihad” have announced a plan to arm citizens with information about the possibilities of more attacks, using strategy in line with the timeless battle adage – “Know thy enemy.”
Clarion Fund previously partnered with WorldNetDaily.com to stream its powerful documentary “The Third Jihad,” which uncovers a stealth influence by radical Islamists to undermine American society.
