“I’m going to have all the negotiations around a big table,” the President said during a town hall meeting in August 2008. “We’ll have doctors and nurses and hospital administrators. Insurance companies, drug companies — they’ll get a seat at the table, they just won’t be able to buy every chair. But what we will do is, we’ll have the negotiations televised on C-SPAN, so that people can see who is making arguments on behalf of their constituents, and who are making arguments on behalf of the drug companies or the insurance companies.”
“Secret meetings with special interests to hammer out backroom deals are one of the reasons that Americans oppose Obamacare and this administration’s unethical approach to governing,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.
To add insult to injury, on top of the $300 business license any ad revenue now invites a 6.45% tax.
Often the cost of this license vastly exceeds blog revenue. Philadelphia’s City Paper highlighted the case of Marilyn Bess, who has made $50 over the past few years on her blog.
When she tried to explain this to the city, she was told to hire an accountant….

To many, his stance proves he’s a Muslim, with a recent poll showing that almost 20 percent of Americans hold that opinion; to others, it just reflects a desire to be faithful to the Constitution (now, that would be change).
The truth, however, is a bit more nuanced. Obama is not religiously…….

Cannon Fodder for the New World Order
By Deanna Spingola
In 1926, General Cherep-Spiridovich wrote, “War is only a ‘legalized mass murder.’ Thus Christ pointed out those who arrange all wars and revolutions, and that their chief cause is Satan and his sons’ ‘lust of murder.’ But ‘Christians’ never seem to agree with Christ.”  Gandhi concurred when he said, “Everyone but Christians understand that Jesus was nonviolent.” Those who “arrange all wars,” are typically among the very top echelon of secret societies, often Illuminati front groups like Skull and Bones, many of whom serve in elected and unelected government positions. Government officials implement a dark agenda of terrorism and genocide through directives developed by members of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) the Bilderberg (BB), and the Trilateral Commission (TC). Some may view these allegations as incredible conspiracy theories, which is exactly the perspective that the media-managing elites encourage in order to conceal their reprehensible operations and their true loyalties.
General Cherep-Spiridovich said that those who arrange wars have a “lust of murder.” They also demonstrate a lust for power and profit, made possible by government-sanctioned warfare, funded by privately owned central banks which print billions of debt-based, interest-laden dollars, debt that is passed off onto the citizens who also fight and die in those wars. The increased glut of cash into the market devalues the currency already in circulation and further jeopardizes the country’s diminishing economy. The malevolent, parasitical bankers achieve their objectives by funding power-hungry, often psychopathic, well-compensated politicians who accommodate the bankers at the expense of the citizens they claim to represent. Representative government ends when the polls close.
Multiculturalists wouldn’t recognize a hostile act if it bayoneted them in the guts; what part of “House of War” do they not understand?
From Wikipedia‘s “Divisions of the World in Islam,” and this is not the first time we have seen the phrase “Dar el Harb” House of War Dar al-Harb Arabic: دار الحرب “house of war“; also referred to as Dar al-Garb “house of the West” in later Ottoman sources; a person from “Dar al-Harb” is a “harbi” Arabic:حربي is a term classically referring to those countries where the Muslim law is not in force, in the matter of worship and the protection of the faithful and Dhimmis.
The militant “Muslims” say it themselves; they are at war with us because we have not submitted to Islam as opposed to the Dar al Islam = House of Islam, also known as the Dar al Salaam, the House of Peace.
Ours is the Dar al-Harb, the House of War, and we are harbis enemies whom their phony religion says are to be treated as follows:
My house is not an investment.It is a house.I don’t intend to make money off it; I intend to live in it.It is not its paper value that matters to me, it is its intrinsic value. I don’t care what it is assessed for, or what it would sell for, I am concerned about its ability to protect my family from the elements and meet our shelter needs.
It is my home.S
o the status of the economy and the housing-sales numbers are meaningless to me. I am not looking to sell my home, I am looking to live in it.So the concept of being “upside down” on a mortgage is meaningless to me, as it should be to everyone. To owe more on your house than it is “worth” is only meaningful if you have forgotten the true worth of a home.And that is not found in money or marketability. It isn’t determined by your mortgage rate or your payoff amount. The true worth of a home is determined by its ability to meet your needs.It is a family shelter, not a tax shelter.And its value is pretty subjective. Yes, you can calculate approximately what a house will bring on the open market.
You can add up the resale value of the structure and its components.But you will be left with meaningless numbers on paper…
When people lose faith in any religion, they cease attending services. Maybe they transfer their membership. American pastors learned this two centuries ago. When Massachusetts abolished tax support for Congregational churches in 1833, that ended the last trace of state compulsion in church circles.But religion is not limited to churches.
It extends to the state. The state is perfectly happy to use tax revenues to promote this religion, just as it was in ancient Rome.When faith wanes in political religion, members of the congregation start looking for alternative places of worship. They want their tithes and offerings to be voluntary. The state denies this way of escape. Voters see no way out, so they choose another approach: to impose pain on the priests.We are seeing this on YouTube. Congressmen who venture into a local town hall meeting are finding that they no longer are in control. The people who were once deferential are confrontational. They are mad as hell and won’t take it any more.Invariably, someone in the room has a pocket video device of some kind. Cell phones are common. Out it comes. Within hours of the confrontation, the video is on YouTube. Then Facebook takes over.The really good ones, meaning the ones where the politician looks scared or foolish or both, get picked up by people outside the district.
Their delight is so great in seeing any Congressman pilloried by some outraged voter that they pass along the video. But when it’s a U.S. Senator, the delight is even greater. A good video gets posted several times. Here, Sen. Kay Hagan of North Carolina gets an earful from a parent who is about to lose her health insurance because of the new law.Hagan Roast
White House correspondents Wendell Goler and Mike Emanuel will take over the beat for Fox News.From the release: MAJOR GARRETT RETURNS TO PRINT JOURNALISM Leaves FOX News Sept. 3 FOX News’ Chief White House correspondent Major Garrett announced today that he will leave the network effective Sept. 3 to return to his roots in print journalism. White House correspondents Wendell Goler and Mike Emanuel will assume joint coverage of the beat. In making the announcement, Garrett said, “Slightly more than eight years ago, [FOX News Chairman & CEO] Roger Ailes, [former FOX News Executive Vice President] John Moody and [former FOX News Washington Managing Editor and current Senior Political Analyst] Brit Hume created a full-time reporting position for me in the Washington bureau.
Our new Senior Vice President of News, Michael Clemente, has continued that support. Since August of 2002, the network and its top executives have given me every opportunity a journalist could hope for. I thank the network for giving me the chance to grow as a reporter and broadcaster.” He continued, “Throughout my television career, I’ve known with certainty I would someday return to my roots in print journalism.
That day has come. I will soon announce an exciting new phase of my career — one made possible in no small part by FOX News’ consistent support. It would take a lot — something near perfection — to lure me away from the best job I’ve ever had. Details to come.”UPDATE: In a separate release issued minutes later, National Journal announced they had hired Garrett as a Congressional correspondent.From the release:
JUDGE WHO REFUSED TO ACT ON ELIGIBILITY QUESTION HALTS EMBRYONIC STEM CELL RESEARCH
by Sharon Rondeau
Judge Royce Lamberth was a captain in the U.S. Army and Assistant U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia. He was nominated to the federal bench by President Ronald Reagan in 1987.Aug. 25, 2010 — A federal judge at the U.S. District Court in Washington, DC has issued an order which temporarily halts the Obama regime’s overriding of a federal statute which prevented expanded embryonic stem cell research.In a 15-page ruling issued on August 23, Judge Royce Lamberth stated that Obama’s 2009 reversal of a Bush executive order violates the Dickey-Wicker Amendment passed by Congress in 1996 and signed by President Bill Clinton.
The ruling came in response to a case filed by the Alliance Defense Fund, Sherley v. Sebelius, filed in June 2010.According to The Washington Post, Lamberth had originally dismissed the case, but a lower court ruled that two doctors who were plaintiffs in the case had standing to move forward. The Post article describes “advocates of the research” as “stunned.”
A Report in TIME magazine details how it is now perfectly legal in nine states for the government to attach secret satellite tracking devices to your car and monitor you wherever you go, without a search warrant.As if that wasn’t bad enough, the report also details how The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, which made the ruling, essentially suggests that privacy should be reserved for rich people only.The law, which now applies in California and eight other Western states, stems from a case beginning in 2007 when federal agents of the DEA covertly attached a GPS tracking device to the vehicle of an Oregon man they suspected of growing marijuana.The vehicle was parked in the man’s driveway, yet judges ruled that he did not have any reasonable expectation of privacy under the Fourth Amendment because they driveway was “open to strangers” such as delivery people and neighborhood children.This ruling transgresses long standing court rules that the area immediately surrounding a private property, known as the “curtilage,” should also be considered private.Judges also ruled that there was no reasonable expectation that the government was not tracking the man’s movements.All appeals against the court’s motion have failed.
Under the administration of Barack Hussein Obama, the United States submitted its first ever “Universal Periodic Review UPR report” to the United Nations. This is the first time in the history of the United Nations that the U.S. has submitted a report to the United Nation’s Human Rights Council, which is the first step in submitting the United States to international review by some of the most repressive and abusive nations in the world.
The 29-page report can be read here.The report is the product of about a dozen conferences held across the U.S. between January and April 2010. The participants of these conferences featured such luminaries as Stephen Rickard and Wendy Patten, from George Soros’ Open Society Institute; Devon Chaffee, Human Rights First; Andrea Prasow, Human Rights Watch; Imad Hamad a suspected member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine PFLP, a Marxist-Leninist terrorist organization, American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee; Dawud Walid, Council American Islamic Relations; Nabih Ayad, Michigan Civil Rights Commission; Ron Scott, Detroit Coalition Against Police Brutality; Osama Siblani, Arab American News; Shannon Minter, National Center for Lesbian Rights and Cynthia Soohoo, Center for Reproductive Rights, among others.
In his farewell to the American people, General George Washington said: “Political parties serve to organize factions, to give government an artificial and extraordinary force; to put in the place of the delegated will of the nation, the will of the party, often a small but artful and enterprising minority of the community; and according to the alternate triumphs of different parties to make the public administration the mirror of the ill-concerted and incongruous projects of that faction, rather than the organ of consistent and wholesome plans digested by common counsels, and modified by mutual interests.”
These parties are likely, in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to USURP FOR THEMSELVES THE REIGNS OF GOVERNMENT, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.
The common and continual mischief’s of the spirit of party are sufficient to make it the interest and duty of a wise people to discourage and restrain it.The Founding Fathers built the impeachment clause into the United States Constitution because they feared that a president intent on subverting the very principles upon which the American experiment was built would someday rise to power, and despite all the checks and balances and obstacles they put in place, the Founders knew that a determined cabal could still gain control of all three branches of government and wield this consolidation of power to dismantle our cherished constitutional principles, and eradicate the freedoms that generations of Americans have sacriﬁced their lives to preserve.
Impeachment is based on “high crimes and misdemeanors,” an old English common law phrase which in the 1600s, meant negligence, abuse of power, and/or abuse of trust.Obama and his henchmen have promoted dangerous and totally unsustainable policies, and have engaged in illegal and corrupt practices such as bribery that little matter of offering a position to Joe Sestak, to drop out of the race against Arlen Specter a crime which the Founders specifically cited as an impeachable offence, together with a clear pattern of outright lying to the American people, which reflects character flaws which are dangerous to the welfare of the nation, and his refusal to provide adequate security for the nation by way of refusing to perform his duties in that regard, this insufferable, narcissistic, incompetent jackass needs to be impeached before we get to the point of mortal destruction as a nation.
Note from Alex Jones: This represents the process of full spectrum dominance over our children’s minds. First the government paid the mothers not to have husbands in the home single parent benefits and now the soldiers are bringing up our kids from Kindergarten age.
This is about training Americans almost from birth that’s it’s normal to have troops involved in routine life on a day to day basis. This is total martial law conditioning.In 1787, Thomas Jefferson lamented the fact that the newly minted Constitution lacked any specific provisions on standing armies. “I do not like the omission of a Bill of Rights providing clearly and without the aid of sophisms for… protection against standing armies,” Jefferson wrote Madison. “The spirit of this country is totally adverse to a large military force,” he told Chandler Price in 1807.
Pentagon Teaches Kindergarten Kids As U.S. Schools Are Militarized For Martial Law Conditioning onepixel Pentagon Teaches Kindergarten Kids As U.S. Schools Are Militarized For Martial Law Conditioning soldierstudent A soldier works with a kindergarten student at Chester Valley Elementary School in Anchorage, Alaska. Now? We relish large armies and enthusiastically send them out to kill people and break things around the world.
The government and the corporate media encourage us to “support our troops” as they illegally occupy foreign lands and engage in war crimes. George Washington’s admonition, expressed in his Farewell Address, that the United States extend commercial relations and have with foreign nations as little political connection — to say nothing of military — as possible is almost entirely forgotten.In violation of Posse Comitatus — a law in the spirit of Thomas Jefferson’s warning about the militarization of civil society — the Pentagon works hand-in-hand with local law enforcement. Increasingly, militarized police are becoming an extension of the Defense Department, the Department of Homeland Security, and even the CIA and the FBI. Few seem to understand the grave danger of this tendency.Now the military has invaded our grade schools. “A new partnership between the Anchorage School District and the U.S. Army Alaska will add a military presence to local schools,” reports the Alaska Star. “School and military officials said the program will help students academically. But having uniformed military in schools also will lend support to children of military members on deployment, they said, and give non-military kids an understanding of what soldiers do for the country.”
Suddenly the American public is shocked. Perhaps there is no economic recovery. Perhaps the One really does favor Islam.Democrats and Republicans shake their heads and wonder, how could our President pursue such divisive and unpopular policies?
What is the rationale for his decisions? Is he incompetent? Is he naive?obamamirror-1The answer is none of the above.I have said before and I will say again, Barack Obama does not share the values of Americans. His vision is completely anathema to an America based on individualism, private property rights and Judeo-Christian morality.When one argues that Barack Obama is merely mistaken in his economic program, they completely discount the notion that he knows exactly what he is doing and that he has been 100% successful in achieving his policies and their intended ends, means and ends that any objective viewer would realize were insane.
After all, an economy is nothing more than the collection of mutually beneficial voluntary exchanges of labor and the fruits of labor. Anything that impedes one’s labor, or the trading of its fruits is necessarily bad for the economy. Hence, almost everything a government does to try to stimulate an economy, impeding the natural spontaneous harmony of such a system necessarily postpones any recovery.Excerpt Read more at biggovernment.com …

And Now…A Quick Story…

Who’s Who In Marine Corps History
SgtMaj John H. Quick
Vera Cruz was the end of the lull before the storm. There was trouble in Haiti, in Santo Domingo, and the big scrap in Europe was looming more portentous every day.
When it came, SgtMaj Quick was ready, sailing for France as Sergeant Major of a battalion of the 6th Regiment, U.S. Marines. Belleau Wood was only the opening battle of the World War for him; he participated in every battle that was fought by the Marines in France until 16 October 1918: the Toulon Sector at Verdun, the Battle of Belleau Wood, the Aisne-Marne Offensive popularly known as the Battle of Soissons, the Marbache Sector near Pont-a-Mousoon, the St. Mihiel Offensive, the Battle of Blanc Mont Ridge, and the Meuse-Argonne Sector.
His gallantry in the Battle of Belleau Wood earned for him the Distinguished Service Cross and the Navy Cross. He earned these decorations on 6 June 1918, when “he volunteered and assisted in taking a truckload of ammunition and material into Bouresches, France, over a road swept by artillery and machine-gun fire, thereby relieving a critical situation.” He was further awarded the 2d Division Citation and the French Fourragere.
Sergeant Major John J. Quick died in St. Louis, Missouri, on 10 September 1922.”~~~~~
And, from George B. Clark’s, “Devil Dogs, Fighting Marines of WW I,” Presidio, 1999, Notes, page 213…”74.
A Ford truck, driven by 2d Lt Moore with an old hand, Sgt. Maj. John Quick, sitting in the passenger’s seat, made the trip over the terrible path toward Bouresches under terrific German shelling and machine-gun barrages.
They were a “team,” the “college boy” and the long-serving Marine NCO who, incidentally, had been awatded the MoH for his bravery at Guantanamo Bay in 1898.
Years later Moore testified to a friend that it was all a figment of Marine Corps publicity.
Why has President Barack Obama on at least two occasions told specifically Muslim audiences that America is a nation of — among other things — “non-believers”?The Pledge of Allegiance says America is one nation under God, our national motto says in God we trust, the Declaration of Independence says we are endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights and since the time of George Washington our presidents have placed their left hands on the Bible as they raise their right hands and swear to defend our Constitution.The Census Bureau’s official Statistical Abstract of the United States says a miniscule 0.7 percent of American adults — or 1,621,000 out of 228,182,000 — are atheists.If you accept the Pew Hispanic Center‘s March 2005 estimate that there were 11 million illegal aliens in the United States back then — and assume for the sake of argument there are still roughly that many today after another half decade of unsecured borders — then a person randomly passing you on an American street is about seven times more likely to be a foreign national illegally residing here than an atheist.If representation in the resident population is the measure, than it is more plausible to say America is a nation of foreigners than to say America is a nation of non-believers.Yet President Obama has virtually made a mantra of saying that Americans are, among other things, “non-believers.”
Walid Shoebat a former Islamic terrorist, whose mother tongue is Arabic as well as understanding the mindset of people from the Middle East has been doing extensive research in the Arabic speaking media on what Imam Rauf has been saying and writing in the Arabic.Wallid Shoebat states “Americans need to understand the level of deception and lies as well as the ends that Muslim clergy like Imam Rauf will go to advance their agenda of advancing Sharia law and Islamic domination in America”
In previous reports researched by the Walid Shoebat Foundation, it was revealed that Imam Rauf has made statements in the Arabic language – while appearing on Arabic media outlets – that completely contradict his somewhat moderate tone when speaking English, exposing him as a direct supporter of terrorism, both financially and verbally.NOW THIS!So who really was speaking on that historic day of June 4th 2009 in Egypt? President Obama or the Imam of the proposed Ground Zero Mosque, Feisal Abdul Rauf?The Shoebat Foundation has obtained a shocking audio recording of Rauf’s own voice boasting in Arabic that Obama’s historic speech in Cairo was provided by the Imam’s work with the Cordova Initiative in what the Imam called “The Blue Print” which, according to him, was the solution to the Islamic-American divide.
Rauf claimed that Chapter 6 of the Imam’s work engineered by the Cordova Initiative was the construct for the entire speech.
As we warned at the beginning of the year, X-ray body scanners currently being used and abused in airports across the world are set to hit the streets as American Science & Engineering reveals that “more than 500 backscatter x-ray scanners mounted in vans that can be driven past neighboring vehicles to see their contents” have been sold to government agencies.
In January, we divulged how the ultimate end use of the body scanners would not be limited to airports, and that they were going to be rolled out on the streets as mobile units that would scan vehicles at checkpoints as well as individuals and crowds attending public events.Dutch police announced that they were developing a mobile scanner that would “see through people’s clothing and look for concealed weapons” and that it would be used “as an alternative to random body searches in high risk areas”.
The device would also be used from a distance on groups of people “and mass scans on crowds at events such as football matches.”
Arlington House, Robert E. Lee & Family, Arlington Cemetery, etc.
On a Virginia hillside rising above the Potomac River and overlooking Washington, D.C., stands Arlington House. The 19th-century mansion seems out of place amid the more than 250,000 military grave sites that stretch out around it. Yet, when construction began in 1802, the estate was not intended to be a national cemetery.
Arlington House “Custis-Lee Mansion”
The mansion, which was intended as a living memorial to George Washington, was owned and constructed by the first president’s adopted grandson, George Washington Parke Custis, son of John Parke Custis who himself was a child of Martha Washington by her first marriage and a ward of George Washington. Arlington won out as a name over Mount Washington, which is what George Washington Parke Custis first intended calling the 1,100-acre tract of land that he had inherited at the death of his father when he was 3.
Between 1841 and 1857, Lee was away from Arlington House for several extended periods. In 1846 he served in the Mexican war under Gen. Winfield Scott, and in 1852 he was appointed superintendent of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, his alma mater. After his father-in-law died in 1857, Lee returned to Arlington to join his family and to serve as executor of the estate.
Robert E. Lee and his wife, Mary Anna, lived at Arlington House until 1861, when Virginia ratified an alliance with the Confederacy and seceded from the Union. Lee, who had been named a major general for the Virginia military forces in April 1861, feared for his wife’s safety and anticipated the loss of their family inheritance. In May 1861, Lee wrote to Mary Anna saying:
“War is inevitable, and there is not telling when it will burst around you . . . You have to move and make arrangements to go to some point of safety which you must select. The Mount Vernon plate and pictures ought to be secured. Keep quiet while you remain, and in your preparations . . . May God keep and preserve you and have mercy on all our people.”
Following the ratification of secession by Virginia, federal troops crossed the Potomac and, under Brig. Gen. Irvin McDowell, took up positions around Arlington. Following the occupation, military installations were erected at several locations around the 1,100-acre estate, including Fort Whipple (now Fort Myer) and Fort McPherson (now Section 11).
