President Obama said Sunday that the United States is still “working on” democracy and a top aide said he has taken “historic steps” to improve democracy in the United States during his time in office.
The remarks came as Obama met with Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev — one of the U.S. president’s many meetings with world leaders ahead of this week’s nuclear summit.

CHARLESTON, S.C. — Looking out from the harbor here, it’s easy to imagine a mortar lighting up the night sky as it hurtled toward Fort Sumter and signaled the start of the Civil War. It’s also easy, standing inside the walls of the island garrison, to view today’s nullification battle over health care less as a frivolous political game and more as a serious threat to the Constitution.

On ABC’s This Week, when retired ABC newsman Sam Donaldson recommended that President Barack Obama nominate, to replace Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, someone who “is going to stand up for the principles – on the left, if you will – that he believes in,” Cokie Roberts jumped in: “I’m not so sure he is so far to the left.” Donaldson agreed: “Well, I’m not sure either.”
FBI Destroyed File on Obama’s Grandfather, Journalist Discloses

MEDIA ADVISORY, April 12 /Christian Newswire/ — The FBI destroyed a file on Barack Obama’s grandfather, the man who selected Communist Frank Marshall Davis to be the future president’s mentor during his growing-up years in Hawaii.
“The FBI confirms that a file was maintained on Obama’s grandfather, Stanley Armour Dunham,” states Cliff Kincaid, the journalist who runs the public policy group, America’s Survival, Inc. (ASI). “This is a troubling development in the effort to understand the Marxism that drives Obama’s policies as president today.”
In correspondence with Kincaid, available at http://www.usasurvival.org, the FBI says the file was destroyed in 1997. The FBI made the admission after Kincaid complied with a request to verify the identity of Dunham and the fact that he was deceased.

In the first hour of Friday’s show, Mark made the case that the upcoming resignation of SCOTUS Justice John Paul Stevens may have dire consequences for the future of the country.
Convinced that Stevens’ resignation was deliberately timed (in order that an ultra-leftist president to fill with a like-minded judge), Mark recalls some of the nation’s most disastrous and Constitution-twisting decisions made by a mere 5-4 SCOTUS vote. Two of them—were the doing of Justice Stevens himself:
(1) The decision to allow the EPA to regulate the emission of carbon dioxide, a newly-declared pollutant, and
(2) the decision to grant terrorist detainees held at Camp G’tmo certain civil rights they were not entitled to, which interfered with President Bush’s legitimate war-making powers and which to this day jeopardizes our national security.

The author, Fareed Zakaria, fortells was interviewed (emphasis added).
“As Mr. Zakaria sees it, the “economic dysfunctions in America today” are the product not of “deep inefficiencies within the American economy,” but of specific government policies — which could be reformed “quickly and relatively easily” to put the country on a more stable footing. “A set of sensible reforms could be enacted tomorrow,” he says, “to trim wasteful spending and subsidies, increase savings, expand training in science and technology, secure pensions, create a workable immigration process and achieve significant efficiencies in the use of energy” — if only the current political process weren’t crippled by partisanship, special-interest agendas, a sensation-driven media, ideological attack groups and legislative gridlock.”

The 1st time Kenya publically declared that Obama was Kenyan born was in 2004 when he was running for the US Senate, then on Nov 5, 2008 they again declared Obama to be a ’son of their soil’. Since then there have been other public statements made from Kenyan officials and now just last month they again reaffirmed their previous claims that Obama truly is a ’son of their soil’ in every aspect of the term.

As the Obama administration continues its plan to usurp the rights of the American people with regard to commerce, energy, immigration and other key issues of our time; we should remember the warning of one of our nation’s founders with regard to our rights and the document that was supposed to safeguard them. What many, especially those educated in the “modern” American public school system, may not know is that the founders strongly disagreed on whether or not to include the Bill of Rights in the US Constitution.

Something that didn’t get much comment in the ObamaCare debate is Section 5210 of the odious, authoritarian bill — a pdf of which can be found here. It starts on page 496 and basically establishes another branch of the military.
Section 5210 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act establishes a “commissioned corps” and a “ready reserve corps” with the purpose of the reserve being to “fulfill the need to have additional Commissioned Corps personnel available on short notice (similar to the uniformed service’s reserve program) to assist regular Commissioned Corps personnel to meet both routine public health and emergency response missions.”

When I first set eyes on Barack Obama I knew that the Republicans didn’t have a chance at winning the Presidency. Obama, a young, handsome, bi-racial idealist whispering the poetry of hope and change was unstoppable when placed next to the old, white, sameness of John McCain. Everything about the Obama candidacy seemed perfectly orchestrated. His presidency, while less popular, has been equally choreographed. There is an almost beauty pageant perfection to his image.
Absence of key U.S. allies at summit amplifies doubts about Obama’s foreign policy

President Obama is holding one of the biggest global summits ever on U.S. soil starting Monday, but for all the hoopla, the event will be missing America’s strongest allies.
As remarkable as it is, the fact that neither British Prime Minister Gordon Brown nor Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu are attending President Obama’s nuclear security summit in Washington Monday and Tuesday is not altogether surprising.
Think the War of Northern Aggression is all over? Think again. The shooting phase might be (for now) but the cultural Marxist attack on Southern history and culture goes on–often conducted by those of a Yankee/Marxist mindset that dont have a clue about real history and wouldn’t admit to its truth if they did.
If you have already watched the Lt. Col. Terry Lakin Video, I would encourage you to spend three minutes more to watch again, paying particular attention to the last few seconds. While I was struck by his words, it was the look he made just before signing off that filled me with both admiration and compassion.
I have seen that look before. It is the look of a man who did not advance enthusiastically to a fight, but did not shirk his responsibility, when the fight was brought to him. The measure of a hero is seen in his resolve. It is the look of a man who was eager to serve out the rest of his career and retire with dignity, having served his nation with honor.
It was the look of a man who knows he has just risked everything he is, all he has stood for, worked for and loved, for his country. A man resolved to the fight, resigned that it must be him, and though he did not seek it out, he would not waver.
These are the actions of a man of honor, courage and patriotism. These are the makings of a true American hero.
By standing on his principles, Lt Col Lakin risks his freedom, reputation, career and future but his integrity will not allow him to coast into retirement pretending everything is fine. His character has compelled him to take a stand. And in his selfless sacrifice, he draws attention to an issue, which has been maligned, scoffed at, hindered and obfuscated by our politicians, our media and some of our less well informed citizens.
And so, with only the slightest tightening of his lips, the smallest, almost unperceivable nod of his head, he signals acceptance of his duty, and his resolve to see it through, to the end. He will stand up and be counted, no matter the consequences.

Along the border, fears are growing that the escalating drug violence in Mexico will spill into the United States.
Last month, a well-known rancher was murdered in southeastern Arizona. Authorities suspect an illegal immigrant did it.
The murder prompted governors in New Mexico and Texas to send forces to the border. This week, the Mexican government sent dozens of police and soldiers to the Juarez Valley to restore order.

BORN IN THE USA?
Kenyan official: Obama born here In debate over constitution, minister urges African nation to emulate U.S. inclusion

Kenyan MP James Orengo
A Kenyan lawmaker told the nation’s parliament last month that Barack Obama was born in Africa and is therefore “not even a native American.”
During debate over the draft of a new Kenyan constitution, James Orengo, the country’s minister of lands and a member of parliament for the Ugenya constituency, cited America’s election of a Kenyan-born president as an example of what can be accomplished when diverse peoples unite:
“If America was living in a situation where they feared ethnicity and did not see itself as a multiparty state or nation,” Orengo posited, “how could a young man born here in Kenya, who is not even a native American, become the president of America?”
Orengo held up the U.S. as a country no longer “living in the past,” since Americans elected a Kenyan-born president without regard to “ethnic consideration and objectives.”
A new strategy has been unveiled to demand answers to Obama’s eligibility questions. See how you can help.

Look how the power madman is pointing, talking down to an ally. Would he dare treat his Islamic masters with such disrespect? President Sarkozy called him “a madman,” “a lunatic.” Perhaps, I don’t know — but one thing is for sure: Hussein is a muhammadan.
He ‘s not insane ………..he wants jihad to win. That’s what he is doing. Of course, to the western mind, the rational mind, the logical mind, the American mind, that is insane.

Under the rule of B. Hussein Obama, America, Americans, the economy, our Constitution, our freedom and our liberty are all worse than they were before. President Obama is an epic failure. The people that Generalissimo Obama has chosen to surround himself with are failures of epic proportions. An assault of unprecedented magnitude is taking place upon America and it is being driven by B. Hussein Obama. Listed below are just a few of the failures, mistakes, and assaults upon America committed by Obama and his minions, since January 20th 2009, when he took office:

Has anyone thought that maybe the Russians did it?
This plane crash over the weekend, the one that killed the Polish president and decapitated the Polish government, are we completely sure it was an accident?
Because, if it was, it was an accident that did the Russians a lot of good. And if it wasn’t an accident, it fits right in with Russian ambitions for renewed empire.
No, I’m not a conspiracy nut and, yes, I did grow up during the Cold War and, yes, I do believe Reagan got it right when he called them an Evil Empire.

In the past, I have been critical of radical leftist university president Rosemary DePaolo. I’ve directed specific criticism towards her for valuing diversity over competence. Thankfully, she has finally seen the light. In a letter written to the entire UNC-Wilmington community on Wednesday, April 8, 2010, she admitted that much of what I’ve said about diversity (for at least seven years’ worth of columns!) is true. I am taking the time today to thank Rosemary for her honesty and humility. For those who are interested, I have reprinted her entire letter below:

It surprised me to learn that David Remnick had dedicated three pages of his comprehensive new Obama biography, The Bridge, to my thesis that Bill Ayers helped Barack Obama write Obama’s 1995 memoir, Dreams From My Father.
It will surprise Remnick even more to learn that he has unwittingly reinforced a thesis that he set out to discredit.
I stumbled on the reference to yours truly rather by accident. I was searching the index to see what Remnick had to say about Bill Ayers and found the first mention on page 253 in this intriguing context, “The true author of Obama’s book, Jack Cashill suggested, was likely Bill Ayers.”

World leaders are gathering in Washington, DC for an international nuclear summit on developing a global strategy to keep nuclear weapons out of the hands of terrorists.
U.S. President Barack Obama, who opens the two-day meeting Monday evening, says terrorists who obtained nuclear materials would be the “single biggest threat” to U.S. security.
Devvy’s EMail Alerts To Me: Army Calls ‘Birther’ Doc’s Bluff…Also see the latest in Kerchner v Obama…
(Mailing list information, including unsubscription instructions, is located at the end of this message.)
It’s most unfortunate Lakin has chosen to hang his career on the birth certificate instead of the real legal issue: Obama’s dual citizenship at the time of his birth.
Lakin is under the misconception that Obama’s eligibility rests on his place of birth. It is the wrong argument. While Obama/Soetoro is obviously hiding the long form birth certificate, it is his father’s citizenship status on August 4, 1961 when Obama was born that is the deciding factor.
Here is a good, short explanation:
“If we can agree that Obama’s father, a citizen of Kenya, then a British colony, was a British subject at the time of his birth, a fact that Obama himself has attested to on numerous occasions, it is evident that, under Part 2, Section 5 of the British Nationality Act of 1948, Obama was born with automatic British citizenship “by decent” from his father.
“Thus, it is an inescapable fact that Obama held dual US-British citizenship from the date of his birth, August 4, 1961, until December 12, 1963, the day that Kenya won its independence from Great Britain.
“However, Article VI, Section 87(2) of the Kenyan Constitution states that “Every person who, having been born outside Kenya, is on 11th December, 1963 a citizen of the United Kingdom and Colonies (Obama Jr.), or a British protected person, shall, if his father becomes, or would but for his death have become a citizen of Kenya by virtue of subsection (1), become a citizen of Kenya on 12th December, 1963.”
