Where Was President Obama Really Born? Can This Issue Finally Be Settled?
All Voices ^ | August 4, 2010 | Kelly WoodcoxPosted on Tuesday, August 10, 2010 8:20:59 PM by 2ndDivisionVet
Over twenty-five percent of Americans, say that President Obama’s 49th birthday is not this week. A poll called “where were you really born that day?” summoned this up into question.The persistent theory boosted heavily by conservative activists that Obama was not born in Hawaii, but that he was born outside of the country of the U.S.
The CNN/Opinion research Corp. survey said 27 percent of responsive people doubt that Obama’s father is telling the truth or that his birth certificate is real. 42% have no doubts, 29% said he probably was born in Hawaii, but couldn’t give a sure answer. Democrats backed Obama more than Republicans. 14 percent of Republicans said he was NOT born in the United States. This issue began over Obama in the 2008 presidential campaign and has become a topic of interest with Rush Limbaugh and the so called ‘Birther’ movement. Hawaii has already released a “certified” copy of Obama’s birth certificate. The 1961 archives of two local newspapers in Hawaii also show his birth announcements! Snopes.com has also checked into it.Related Sources:http://www.snopes.com/politics/obama/citizen.asp http://www.factcheck.org/elections-2008/born_in_the_usa.html
Retired general : Congress should give Obama ultimatum

A retired major general who is a decorated combat veteran and ran an abbreviated campaign for the presidency in 2008 says Congress should deliver an ultimatum to President Obama: Prove your eligibility or quit.The comments come from Major Gen. Jerry Curry, who served in Vietnam and commanded the U.S. Army Test and Evaluation Command at Aberdeen Proving Ground during his long military career.
He was answering questions on the “Talk to Solomon” show, and a video had been posted of his reaction to the question:Excerpt Read more at wnd.com …

This pernicious system of centralization is stamped with the indelible character of a growing aggravated oppression.Excerpt Read more at wolvesofliberty.com …
James Burgess related that the Prophet, while addressing the Nauvoo Legion several miles east of Nauvoo in May 1843, said that “the time would come when the constitution and government would hang by a brittle thread and would be ready to fall into other hands but this people the latter-day saints will step forth and save it.” James Burgess Journal, 1818–1904, Church Archives, vol. 1—found among loose sermons.
They say it’s best to go out with a bang.And as resignations go, Steven Slater’s was certainly memorable.When a stroppy passenger swore at the flight attendant after he asked her to remain in her seat until the plane had stopped, he first commandeered the public address system to launch a four-letter tirade at shocked travellers.

Glenn Beck hopes to make history. He is convinced his Restoring Honor rally, planned for August 28th, will cause shockwaves unfelt in the country since the mid 1750s, the time of the Great Awakening. As I pointed out in an earlier post, Beck is fond of preacher George Whitefield, though I think a strong case was made that Whitefield’s theology and Beck’s brand of pluralism are as different as black is from white.

A little over a year ago, I wrote a column suggesting that due to the blatant hostility the National Education Association was expressing towards Christians, it was time for Christian teachers to withdraw their membership from the NEA. As it turns out, the focus of my call to abandon this radically left lobby group was a bit too narrow.
As evidenced by its own website, the NEA is not merely anti-Christian, they are anti-American as well.How else can you explain the plan that appeared on the NEA’s “Diversity Calendar” instructing teachers to make October 1st a special recognition of the Communist revolution in China?
The NEA recommended teachers celebrate how the world’s most notorious butcher, Chairman Mao Zedong, proclaimed the “Chinese people have stood up,” as he established the regime that would slaughter more innocent human beings than any other in world history. [Editor's note: The NEA has since removed the October 1 event from their website, following a rapid spread of the news about it.]
Long Live The Constitutionalist Sheriff
If liberty has any chance of surviving in the United States, it will be because the American people wake up to the importance and necessity of electing constitutionalist governors and sheriffs. Sheriffs, especially, are critical to the maintenance of liberty. It is a truism that, next to the people themselves, the sheriff’s office helps form the last line of defense against federal abuse of power. Long live the constitutionalist Sheriff!……..

Fidel Castro Convokes Parliament, Issues Dramatic War Warning
The most dramatic and outspoken confirmation of the views expressed here on July 21 comes from Fidel Castro, the first secretary of the Cuban Communist Party, and the de facto head of state of Cuba.
During the spring and summer of 2010, Castro has referred several times to the growing war danger among the United States, Israel, and Iran. On August 8, Castro took the unusual step of convening a special session of the Cuban parliament to discuss the nuclear war danger threatening the peace of the world.
Essentially, Castro called for the worldwide mobilization of peace-loving forces to avoid the worst, and included a special personal appeal to Obama.

Hillary for Vice President?Wall Street Journal ^ | 8/10/10 | JOHN FUNDPosted on Tuesday, August 10, 2010 10:55:52 AM by CharlieOK1As President Obama sinks in the polls, Democrats and liberal pundits inevitably are searching for a scapegoat.
The most likely victim appears to be gaffe-prone Vice President Joe Biden, who has become the focus of speculation that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton just might replace him on the 2012 Democratic ticket.

“Although we would prefer voluntary compliance in this case as well, we will not hesitate to commence litigation after August 17, 2010, if MCSO continues to take the position that it need not cooperate with the Division’s investigation,” wrote Perez.
According to an article by Channing Turner in the independent, Washington-based news site Main Justice, attorney Robert Driscoll, of Alston & Bird, LLP, who represents Arpaio, has described the Justice Department’s threat to sue the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office as premature and has indicated that Arpaio will cooperate with certain elements of the probe.
But Driscoll also claimed that Arpaio had previously handed over thousands of documents in a lawsuit involving allegations that Arpaio’s deputies had racially profiled Hispanics, and that arguments contained in the Perez letter “conflated the legal boundaries between two separate and ongoing investigations.

Iran Claims It’s Digging Graves for U.S. Troops in Case of Attack
deja vuFOX/AP ^Posted on Tuesday, August 10, 2010 9:46:26 AM by nuconvertTEHRAN, Iran —
Iran has dug mass graves in which to bury U.S. troops in case of any American attack on the country, a commander of the elite Revolutionary Guard said Tuesday, warning that a military strike would spark an “extensive war” in the region.
The announcement appears to be a show of bravado after the chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, Adm. Mike Mullen, said last week that the U.S. military has a contingency plan to attack Iran, although he thinks a military strike is probably a bad idea.Excerpt Read more at foxnews.com …

On this day in 1863, Frederick Douglass R-MD met with President Abraham Lincoln R-IL for the first time. Senator Samuel Pomeroy R-KS escorted Douglass to the War Department building. On arrival, Douglass urged Secretary of War Edwin Stanton to allow equal pay for African-American soldiers in the U.S. Army. Though sympathetic, Stanton said that would require congressional approval, which he supported.Next, Douglass was introduced to the president at the White House. Lincoln stood and shook his hand “just as you have seen one gentleman receive another,” Douglass later recounted.
“I at once felt myself in the present of an honest man — on whom I could love, honor and trust without reserve or doubt… Mr. Lincoln was not only a great president, but a great man — too great to be small in anything. In his company I was never in any way reminded of my humble origin, or of my unpopular color.”… Frederick Douglass said Lincoln’s name “should never be spoken but with reverence, gratitude and affection,” and he knew him to be “the greatest statesman that ever presided over the destinies of this Republic.

Of course, the administration and its dwindling members is well-aware of this fact, which is why the next three months will likely see a record amount of pandering, populism and outright manipulation of everything that can be manipulated: that includes mortgages rates, and of course, stocks.
Which leads us to observe the calendar of FOMC meetings until November: there are two – tomorrow and September 21. However, for a Fed loosening decision to have a material impact, the September meeting is likely cutting it too close to the election date, as the market will likely not have enough time to digest a favorable outcome, or in turn will be into its reactionary phase by the time November rolls around.

The other night on the boob tube I caught a commercial featuring a talk show host named Neal Boortz, Michael Reagan adopted son of former president, Ronald Reagan and the vile Newt Gingrich.
All pushing for another dangerous taxing scheme that will not cure the cancer, only continue to feed the beast.Boortz has been on this “fair” tax bandwagon for years. It’s obvious he has zero understanding of the Federal Reserve and why such a taxing scheme would only continue to steal the fruits of our labor to fund massive government spending.

Guy Hayes said the Guard was called to the area about 20 miles north of Dillingham at about 7 p.m. Monday after a passing aircraft saw the wreckage.Hayes says there are possible fatalities. State and federal officials say severe weather has hampered the rescue operation.Hayes says about five good Samaritans were on scene early Tuesday helping the crash victims. He says he was told by Alaska State Troopers that there were “eight or nine” people on board, though a spokeswoman for the troopers, Megan Peters, refused to comment.The aircraft is a 1957 DeHavilland DHC-3 Otter registered to Anchorage-based communications company GCI, the Federal Aviation Administration told the Anchorage Daily News. A woman at the Regional Operations Center told The Associated Press all further information was pending notification of next of kin.Dillingham is located in northern Bristol Bay, about 325 miles southwest of Anchorage.According to the Anchorage Daily News, former U.S. Sen. Ted Stevens was reportedly traveling to a GCI-owned lodge in the area and friends are concerned he may have been on the downed plane.Excerpt Read more at newsminer.com .
How old is the President? Rush Limbaugh thinks August 4, the chief’s birthday, may not be correct.
Okay, but what about his emotional age?Last week marked Obama’s 49th birthday. The celebration began Wednesday evening at a dinner in Chicago with Oprah Winfrey and officially ended on Sunday at the White House with a barbecue.In between he did run around to various Democratic fundraisers and gave another upbeat speech at a Ford auto plant touting his economic plan as a boon to creating jobs.
With those annoying chores out of the way, he hit the golf course on Saturday and played basketball at Fort McNair while wounded war veterans watched. Then more fun on Sunday with best pal, Reggie Love above, and some pros from the sport he just adores.With Michelle and the girls out of town, Obama’s never-ending fantasy week reminded me of the 1988 movie Big with Tom Hanks.
The target of their protest: private transfer fees being attached as liens on homes and requiring successions of property owners to pay a fee every time the house or lot resells during the coming 99 years. Though proponents say the concept helps real estate developers raise capital for projects by bringing in Wall Street investors, critics contend the liens amount to a perpetual money machine that lowers equity values for unsuspecting consumers and complicates real estate sales.
Congressman: Obama ‘enjoying’ eligibility dispute
WND ^ | August 10, 2010 | Bob UnruhPosted on Monday, August 09, 2010 11:55:51 PM by RobinMasters
A member of Congress from California says there’s no need for the president to be born in the United States – or to have two parents who are United States citizens – to be a “natural born citizen” and be eligible to be president.And U.S. Rep. Brian Bilbray, R-Calif., told WND today that he believes President Obama, who’s been named as a defendant in multiple legal and other challenges claiming he is not eligible to be president, is enjoying the dispute over his background.
Further, Bilbray said the document that Obama critics should be hunting for is the passport he used when he traveled to Indonesia and other places early in his life.The controversy over Bilbray’s comments developed when a Youtube video was posted. In the video, of a television interview on “The Ed Show,” Bilbray said, “It’s just like people thinking that you gotta be born in the United States to be president. You don’t have to be. That’s a legend. We got to clarify that.”Excerpt Read more at wnd.com …

Have you driven a Chevy VoltThe headline is a play an early ‘80s Ford car ad campaign. Have you driven a Ford. . .lately? was the tag line and it’s instructive when considering Chevrolet’s new Volt, the car that’ll make GM a “leader” in green vehicle technology and create green blue collar jobs.
The answer to Have you driven a Chevy Volt . . .lately? is most likely to be no.I really love cars, and it pains me to criticize a vehicle, since my premise is all cars are good, some are better than others. Plus I know people at GM who love cars and worked diligently on this car, even if they thought it an answer to a question no one asked. While the Volt looks like smart product planning and business management to the Obama regime – people who don’t know or care about cars – unfortunately, it fails on several levels.Start with a $41,000 list price and with the $7500 Federal tax credit it drops to $33,500. I would even speculate that California, with a $20 billion deficit, could even be willing to spend money it doesn’t have by kicking in a state hybrid vehicle credit to shave the price slightly. Regardless, tax credits mean more of what we don’t need: government spending.Excerpt Read more at americanthinker.com …
Obama has lost eligibility issue
WND — World Net Daily ^ | August 10, 2010 | Joseph FarahPosted on Tuesday, August 10, 2010 2:54:26 AM by stevenl77
Just as Richard Nixon lost the battle of Watergate because of cover-up and stonewalling, Barack Obama has lost the battle over his constitutional eligibility for the same sins.With the latest CNN poll showing only 42 percent of Americans definitively persuaded that he was born in the U.S., those who claimed this wasn’t a “winning issue” have been proven wrong.
Not only is it a winning issue, it is the only issue that can effectively undo the nightmare of the Obama era in one fell swoop.There would be no need for repealing Obamacare if it turns out his presidency was a sham from the beginning.There would be no need to wait until Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan retire or die to see them replaced on the Supreme Court if it turns out his presidency was a sham from the beginning.There would be no need to wring our hands in hopes that future congresses and future presidents might roll back all of the damage Obama has inflicted on America if it turns out his presidency was sham from the beginning.There would be no need to wait until 2011 in hopes that a new Republican majority might impeach Obama if it turns out his presidency was a sham from the beginning.There would be no need to wait until 2012 for another chance to replace Obama if it turns out his presidency was a sham from the beginning.That’s why this issue is so important.Excerpt Read more at wnd.com …
