You could take what Obama knows about small business and the mindset of the people who own them and shove it up an ant’s a and it would rattle around like a marble in the Super Dome.
BECAUSE YOUR ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN YOUR FALSE WORDSby 1Dragon, blogging at Socialism is not the AnswerAug. 31, 2010 — You know, if Mr. Obama was as smart as he thinks he is, he would understand that the People question who he is and what he is because of what he is hiding. No President in history has ever sealed all of the files pertaining to his past.
Your religion has been in the news before and it continues today and with good reason. Your grandfather was a Muslim, your father was a Muslim, your stepfather was Muslim and you were registered a Muslim when you went to school in Indonesia. You went on your trip through the Middle East apologizing for America being a success. You have repeatedly tried to rewrite history by telling America that Muslims played a part in America’s past. As I have stated before, I don’t remember any Muslims traveling with Columbus, coming over on the Mayflower or signing the Constitution.
Now if this were the early 1940′s and your last name was Shultz or Yamato, even more people would question you.I’m sure that all Muslims are not terrorists, but when the World Trade Center was destroyed, there was dancing in the streets throughout the Muslim world. This is one reason why people don’t like Muslims.
You might also understand that there in a difference between a long-form birth certificate and a COLB, and since the one you posted has been proven to be a fake, it’s understandable why people think you are a fake.
A retired lieutenant general from the U.S. Air Force who commanded forces armed with nuclear weapons says the disclosure of Barack Obama‘s documentation proving his eligibility to be commander in chief is critical not just to the defense of an officer challenging the president’s status, but to the preservation of the nation itself.
The vehement statements came in an affidavit from retired Lt. Gen. Thomas G. McInerney that was disclosed today by an organization generating support for Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin.Lakin had invited his own court-martial because he is unable to follow orders under the chain of command with Obama at its head until and unless Obama’s eligibility is documented.A hearing is scheduled in Lakin’s court-martial case Thursday at which a ruling is expected on defense requests for the very evidence that McInerney is citing.
The general, who retired in 1994 after serving as Vice Commander in Chief of USAF forces in Europe, Commander of the 3rd Tactical Fighter Wing and Assistant Vice Chief of Staff of the U.S. Air Force, among other positions, said the chain of command issue is critical in today’s world, since officers are obligated both to follow orders and to disobey illegal orders.Excerpt Read more at wnd.com …

When it was announced several years ago that spy satellites would be used domestically, the excuse was that they were a necessary tool to fight the “war on terror” and illegal immigration. However, now that the use of such technology is becoming commonplace, it is in fact being deployed mainly to harass citizens who haven’t followed local ordinances on swimming pools or paid local back taxes.
This CNN video from several years ago, which has received fresh attention over the last few days, discusses the use of GPS satellite technology in the context of fighting terrorists, protecting borders and critical infrastructure, as the former DHS Assistant Secretary states that Americans should have “pride” in their domestic deployment.However, some five years later, spy satellites are actually being used as tools of intimidation to scare people who owe back taxes, people who haven’t followed local ordinances on swimming pools, and a myriad of other petty transgressions.As we reported earlier this month, aerial imaging technology is being used by the government to spy on Americans in an effort to collect revenue and enforce ordinances on swimming pools without safety certificates and junk cars being stored without permission, as the state completely violates the Fourth Amendment to suck citizens dry of whatever disposable income they have left as the economy enters a double dip recession.
The most chilling example of how authorities are abusing spy satellites is this Pittsburgh Department of Revenue ad, which uses the technology to intimidate residents into paying back taxes by threatening them with the big brother tool while claiming, “We do know who you are”.
Only when liberals are in charge can terms like faith, hope, charity and sacred honor be classified as hate speech. Our ever increasing lexicon now includes “Becklash”; defined as an entirely irrational reaction to a TV and radio commentator’s well attended non-political Restoring Honor rally in Washington.
Misery Merchant, Al Sharpton is the architect of Becklash. Always desperately seeking relevance, Sharpton saw an opportunity in exploitation when he realized that the date of Beck’s long planned event was the same date that Martin Luther King, Jr. gave his legendary “I Have a Dream” speech.Sharpton would do well to actually read the text of Dr. King’s most famous speech before staking it out as the exclusive territory of the poverty pimps. Dr. King was pretty unambiguous in his call to judge a man not by the color of his skin, but by the content of his character.The professional race baiting community has had it backwards for decades, operating on the divide and conquer platform also favored in the Soviet Union. Splitting a nation along racial lines has, historically, been an effective mechanism for weakening the country.Liberals relish assigning humans to groups which they then anoint with special victim status for the purpose of being used in their destructive power schemes. Liberals are obsessed with race.
It harkens back to the old Soviet Union days in which blacks were openly recruited as operatives by the Kremlin to be exploited in the cause of destabilizing American democracy. Leftist policies will never be accepted by free people if the people know what they are.
Liberals can only get their agenda through if they induce discord and chaos among the populace.Sharpton took the moribund race hustling industry to its lowest point by staging an embarrassing “counter rally” on 8/28.SEIU was unable to round up more than a handful of attendees. While Beck had asked his attendees not to carry signs, the Sharpton rally was infested with offensive signage. The tone, predictably enough, was angry. The same old moth-eaten “no justice, no peace” sloganeering was the best they could do.Charles Krauthammer and others described the Beck crowd as akin to a very large church picnic. The media, always entirely dependable, debased itself with its patently absurd coverage of the event. CBS proclaimed that the rally was attended by 87,000. Credible reports place the numbers between 300,000 and 750,000. Not a single incident. And the grounds are as clean, if not cleaner, as they were when the crazy mob of tea baggers got there.Sarah Palin defined the event’s goals quite neatly: we’re not here to change America, but to restore America.
Republican gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino said Monday during a live television interview that he doesn’t believe President Barack Obama is a practicing Christian “in his heart.”“I think he worships himself,”
Paladino told YNN’s “Capital Tonight” news program.‘I’m not saying he’s anything else, but I think Mr. Obama is about himself,” the millionaire Buffalo developer said. “I think any religious beliefs that he advocates are part of the theater to make himself look better to the American people.”
The comments come as Obama is again countering claims that he is a Muslim. In an interview broadcast Sunday on ‘NBC Nightly News,” Obama repeated his position that the confusion over his religious beliefs stems from misinformation over the Internet.
When asked Monday if he believed that Obama was a Christian, Paladino said, “No, not in his heart.”A Quinnipiac University poll released Tuesday shows Obama has hit his lowest approval rating among New Yorkers. The poll shows just 51 percent of voters in the state dominated by Democrats approve of his performance. Among Republicans, 80 percent disapprove.Quinnipiac’s Maurice Carroll said Paladino’s comments probably played well with Republicans, especially those most likely to vote in the primary in two weeks.Paladino hasn’t apologized for many of his past controversial comments. He has answered criticism by saying he’s a straight talker and not a career politician, which he says is what New York state government needs after years of corruption, overtaxing and overspending on special interests.
More recently, Paladino has said he would stop a proposed Islamic cultural center and mosque a couple of blocks from ground zero by using eminent domain to seize the site and develop it as a memorial to those who died in the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. He said building a mosque near ground zero would be like erecting a monument to the Japanese navy at Pearl Harbor, site of the World War II attack.In addition to the state polls on the mosque issue, national polls show that some Americans believe the president practices Islam.Paladino’s spokesman, Michael Caputo, said after the interview that Paladino stands by the remarks and that he has little regard for Obama and for “what he’s doing to this country.”Paladino had the extended interview because his Republican opponent in the Sept. 14 primary, Rick Lazio, refused to join him in a debate.
This quarrel started last year. In 2009, Governor Perry accepted $3.2 billion in federal stimulus money for its education fund. However, Perry did not use the money to supplement the state’s education fund as the federal government had intended it. Instead he cut the state’s education funding and used the stimulus money to fill the gap.
That allowed Texas to boost its rainy day fund, bringing it to a little over $9 billion.Perry’s actions infuriated Democrats who wanted states to increase their spending, not cut back and save. Lloyd Doggett, a Democrat Congressman from Austin was one of the biggest critics of Perry’s actions. In order to ensure the same thing does not happen with the $26 billion package, $830 million of which was pledged to Texas, Doggett drafted an amendment that requires only Texas to certify that it will not reduce the state’s education spending at any time within the next three years in order to receive the funds. Unfortunately, this mandate attempt by Doggett to punish Texas for fiscal responsibility is unconstitutional. Article 8, Section 6 of the Texas Constitution states:”No money shall be drawn from the Treasury but in pursuance of specific appropriations made by law; nor shall any appropriation of money be made for a longer term than two years.”
Therefore, the governor cannot bind the next legislative session to an assurance as the Doggett Amendment requires. Perry blasted Doggett for the amendment, which could prevent Texas from receiving its share of the education funds:”This amendment mandates that the governor guarantee the Legislature will provide a certain level of state funding through 2013, a funding scheme prohibited by the Texas Constitution. It will be at least June 1, 2011, before the Legislature passes and the Comptroller certifies the 2012-2013 budget. That means Texas – the only state singled out with this mandate – might not be able to use any of these funds provided to states.
“Texas State Republican Senator Dan Patrick added to the exchange in an address on his Facebook page:”The Governor of Texas does not write the budget and cannot guarantee expenditures now, or in the future.
The legislature also cannot guarantee spending beyond the 2 year budget cycle we pass each session. You can plan to spend money beyond two years, but you cannot guarantee it…It is not possible, practical, or allowed by the Constitution, to guarantee monies beyond the budget cycle, Texas House and Senate Democrats understand this, but apparently Texas Democrat Congressmen do not.”

The Ground Zero Mosque debate is only the latest in a long series of incidents in which liberals have chosen to side with Islamists, while denying their victims a fair hearing or any hearing at all.
Opponents of the mosque are painted as “Islamophobic Extremists” representing nothing but bigotry and hate. This is much the same way that the liberal cultural elite has placed the blame for over a thousand years of Muslim persecution of Jews on “Zionist Extremism”. While a Koran in the toilet becomes a front page story, the ongoing persecution of Hindus, Zoroastrians and Christians in Muslim countries is only a footnote in the State Department’s human rights report.

It is unbelievable to me that I even have to mention such a thing as the right for our overseas military to get their votes counted in time for elections, but I do.
We saw the absurdity in the 2008 election where 17,000 votes that we know of of overseas military votes were not counted for the general Presidential election. That was a shocking horror show then to most of America and thankfully to some in our congress who created a law, the Move Act, requiring all states to send out ballots at least 45 days in advance to make sure overseas military had time to vote before the election. Hopefully this protective law would solve this voting problem…not.
It is unforgivable to not allow our soldiers who are facing bullets, terrorists, fear and death daily to even vote in time regardless of the state’s excuses for not sending them out on time! Here they are taking hails of bullets and sacrificing their lives to protect our rights to vote, yet we can’t go out of our way to make sure they get to vote as well!
Continental Europeans are used to this sort of thing after decades of dominance by unelected bureaucrats in Brussels, and have grudgingly accepted over time the gradual and undemocratic erosion of their freedoms.
Indeed, a decade ago, Black Muslim Minister Farrakhan’s “Million Man March” brought a throng of hundreds of thousands to the Capitol.But, last Saturday, Glenn Beck packed the Mall with a crowd that could have filled Yankee Stadium to overflowing five times over. As it stretched from the Lincoln Memorial to the Washington Monument, the estimates of its size ran to half a million.This was twice the size of the crowd that heard Martin Luther King Jr. 47 years ago and matched the antiwar demonstrations of 1969.
Wisely, Beck dropped partisanship to convert his gathering into a God, country and Constitution rally, with speakers honoring the courage and sacrifice of America’s military. Said Sarah Palin, a rally star, “Say what you want to say about me, but I raised a combat vet, and you can’t take that away from me.”

Legends and Myths Of The Corps
BIRTHPLACE OF THE CORPS, 1775–
TUN TAVERN OR CONESTOGA WAGON?
From the book, The Marine Corps Story, by J.Robert Moskin, 1992, Little, Brown and Company
“…The two battalions were never raised; but onNovember 28, the Congress commissioned thirty-twoyear old Capt. Samuel Nicholas, a PhiladelphiaQuaker, and innkeeper and a blacksmith’s son, asthe first Marine officer.
And, from the book, The United States Marines AHistory, by Edwin Howard Simmons. 1998, NavalInstitute Press
“…According to legend, the recruiting redezvouswas Tun Tavern, but it is more likely that it was the Conestoga Wagon, a tavern owned by theNicholas family on Market Street between Fourthand Fifth Streets.”
And, from the book, Marine Corps Book Of Lists,Albert A. Nofi, 1999, Combined Publishing
“…Eight Hoary Old Marine Corps Legends That AreNot True.
1. The first Marine recruiting stationwas established in Tun Tavern, in Philadelphia,the proprietor of which was so adept at securingrecruits, by liberally plying them with drink,that he was made a captain in the Corps.
Alas for”romance,” the story is untrue.
It probably gotits start from the fact that Samuel Nicholas,effectively the first Marine Commandant, actually did own a tavern in Philadelphia, the ConestogaWagon, which apparently served as hisheadquarters for a time.
However the owner of theTun Tavern did become a Marine officer, about ayear after the creation of the Corps, whichprobably gave rise to the legend.
WND Exclusive INVASION USAFelons by the thousands among infiltrating hordes
Documentary also uncovers alarming link between illegal aliens and radical IslamistsPosted:
August 30, 20108:51 pm EasternBy Anita Crane© 2010 WorldNetDailyJerry Misner, left, and Stan Wald of Eyefull Video Productions in their Tucson studioTens of thousands of convicted felons, including murderers and sex offenders, regularly are breaching the United States national boundary along just one section of the shared line with Mexico, according to a revealing new documentary called “Southern Exposure: Battle for the Border.”Eyefull Video Productions, located in the migration hotbed of Tucson, Ariz., has produced a made-for-TV special about the U.S./Mexico border crisis.
It suggests that the invading hordes also may have an agenda of damage to the U.S. far beyond ordinary crime such as robbery, looting and even homicide.In anticipation of its Sept. 15 release date, when it is scheduled to be available on DVD on Amazon, producer Stan Wald and director Jerry Misner talked about their documentary with WND.
The words “homeland security” are found 41 times in the text of the bill S. 510, also known as the Food Safety Modernization Act. Unprecedented powers over food are set to be handed over to Homeland Security if the bill is not stopped.
The bill opens opens the door to even more federal control over the everyday lives of American citizens. Since they are already engaging in organic raw milk raids without the increased powers of S. 510, the question is going to be how many more guns-drawn raids are we to expect after the bill becomes law?

Bill O’Reilly Praises Glenn Beck Rally as a “Huge Victory”; Slams Critics – VideoFreedom’s Lighthouse ^ | August 31, 2010 | BrianPosted on Tuesday, August 31, 2010 9:21:00 AM by Federalist PatriotHere is video of Bill O’Reilly reviewing Glenn Beck’s “Restoring Honor” Rally, which he said was a “huge victory for Glenn Beck.”
After giving his commentary on the rally, O’Reilly talked with Glenn Beck about the incredible weekend.O’Reilly said critics like Howard Dean should be “ashamed of himself” for his attacks on Beck. At the end, Bill told Glenn Beck he does not think there is another person in America who could have brought that many people together.
“I can’t spend all of my time with my birth certificate plastered on my forehead,” President Barack Obama told Brian Williams in an interview Sunday night on NBC’s “Nightly News,” reacting to the question of why a large percentage of Americans have serious doubts about his Christian faith.In Part 1, I began to demonstrate how the president is using U.S. special envoy Rashad Hussain, his own presidential position and others in his administration to deepen and expand the partnership between the United States and Islam.In Part 2, I detailed President Obama’s real spiritual beliefs based upon a rare in-depth interview by a religious reporter for a major newspaper publication, including his beliefs about prayer, sin, heaven, the Bible and Jesus.Now, in Part 3, I will demonstrate how President Obama categorically has been prejudicial in his treatment of Christianity versus Islam.My question is: In a 2009 speech in Cairo, President Obama committed to “fight against negative stereotypes” of Islam “wherever they appear,” so why doesn’t he also consider it his responsibility to do that for Christianity, especially because the majority of Americans still profess affinity with Christendom and the White House insists Obama is “a committed Christian”?In just the past few months, why didn’t the president step forward and stand up publicly for any of the following Christians who had their First Amendment rights trampled upon by others, just as he did for Muslims who are attempting to build the ground zero mosque?–Why doesn’t the president stand up for the rights of Christian organizations, whose right to hire same-faith or same-mission-minded employees is protected under the 1964 Civil Rights Act, the 1993 Religious Freedom Restoration Act and the First Amendment but who are having to urge Congress to reject legislation that would prohibit them from hiring only fellow believers?–Why didn’t the president stand up for the rights of the North Carolina pastor who was fired from his duties as an honorary chaplain of the state General Assembly after he closed a prayer “in the name of Jesus”?–Why didn’t the president stand up for the rights of those in Utah who erected 14 memorial crosses on highways for state troopers killed in the line of duty but who were told by federal judges the crosses are to come down because they are unconstitutional?
Overall, considering the tens of thousands leaving early and coming late, we might have approached 1,000,000 attendees.As I said, I did not hear the event that well, and I could not see it. But what I could hear and see were the other Americans near me. We talked of nothing of importance really, because the important thing to say had already been said just by being there.
I felt secure and protected by the strangers surrounding me. I felt akin to them.Tired of not counting, we wanted to be counted.
Tired of not being heard, we wanted to hear the comforting voice of each other.
In the trenches, there was a definite sense of deep-seated anger at the elite and its corruption of our institutions, of our laws and of the souls of our youth and vulnerable members of society. But it is a constructive anger and an irresistible one that will fuel more than a change of majority in Congress, one that goes way beyond politics. It is the kind of anger which turns to wrath.On the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, there was Faith and Love, the kind of Faith and Love of God which we all will need to prevent our anger from turning to the dark side.It was a beautiful day in Washington.
But there is a storm gathering, and we came to prepare, to gather strength and to show force.
