Chris Matthews: Birthers Are Trying To “Assassinate” Obama “With Their Lies”

Mediaite ^ | 8/4/10 | Frances MartelPosted on Wednesday, August 04, 2010 8:58:45 PM by Nachum

Today is President Barack Obama’s 49th birthday, which, since his ascent to the presidency, has become somewhat of a faux holiday for the birther movement, who don’t seem to believe this is his birthday. In celebration, CNN released a poll showing that a quarter of Americans believe the President was not born in America.

To Chris Matthews, this quarter of Americans is “the worst kind of citizen.”Matthews tore into the long-debunked birther movement in his “Let Me Finish” segment today, calling them “the most un-American of people” for discriminating against the President based solely on, as he puts it, “not because of where he was born, but because of what race he was when he was born” it is to be assumed that Matthews doesn’t mean the 31% of birthers that approve of President Obama, according to a recent ABC poll.

He outlined the blatant fallacies in the general birther argument– the fact that we have seen a copy of Obama’s certificate, and the slim likelihood that there were “people around in 1961 who wanted to create this presidency 49 years later, who were determined to have someone who was only about to be born elected to lead this country.”

“They know full well the President was born in America,” he concluded, “they just want to destroy him personally.”Excerpt Read more at mediaite.com …

Obama Executive Order To Control Coasts and Waterways

UNCOVERAGE.net ^ | 8/03/10 | Jane JamisonPosted on Wednesday, August 04, 2010 8:17:17 PM by blueyon

While we were fixated on twelve other stupid and/or unconstitutional things the Obama administration was doing last week, President Obama signed a controversial executive order which is being regarded as another huge loss of private property rights.

The short version is, the executive order gives the federal government control of coastal properties along the oceans and all other waterways–rivers, lakes–and any adjoining property which might drain into and affect the quality of those waterways.

The order contains fees for applications for use, rules, and fines.Here is more detail from Henry Lamb writing for World Net Daily. There has been very little coverage in the mainstream media of this unprecedented power grab.President Obama’s Executive Order 13547, issued July 19, further extends federal power, embraces global governance, diminishes the rights and privileges of individuals and brings the United States into compliance with Agenda 21, Chapter 17.6, which says:

No Help In Sight: Texas Ranchers Forced To Hire “Gate Keepers”

Gateway Pundit ^ | 8-4-10Posted on Wednesday, August 04, 2010 8:28:22 PM by Justaham

Unbelievable. And, this is happening within our borders. Texas ranchers are forced to hire “gate keepers” to protect them.TV video report shows ranchers in Texas having to hire “gate guards”.This is an untenable situation. These people are coping as best as they can.

They live in fear in their own homes. And, yet Barack Obama mocks those who speak out against this nightmare and says they’re anti-immigrant.

Supreme Court Justices From Venus:

Using The Bench To Divide America

IBD Editorials ^ | August 4, 2010 | THOMAS MCCARDLEPosted on Wednesday, August 04, 2010 8:44:53 PM by Kaslin

According to Saul Alinsky, the leftist founder of modern community organizing and longtime inspiration to President Obama, “One acts decisively only in the conviction that all the angels are on one side and all the devils on the other.

“Solicitor General Elena Kagan is one step away from becoming not only a Supreme Court justice, but part of a trio TV viewers might call “Barry’s Angels.”Justice Sonia Sotomayor, also appointed by Obama for her “empathy”, and Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, appointed by Bill Clinton, will with Kagan constitute a clique of women opposing the high court’s male conservative wing on case after case after case.It will be a conspicuous demarcation that the establishment media are sure to pick up and run with.

Talking heads watched by millions will declare this “Supreme Gender Gap” symbolic of Ugly America vs. the Kinder, Gentler one, of John Wayne vs. Oprah, of the arrows vs. the olive branch.The public’s perception of the Supreme Court will be transformed as a consequence, with sizable political repercussions, and there is every reason to believe this was exactly the president’s intention in naming women to both of his high court vacancies. Don’t be surprised if he names yet another next time around.The court’s frequent 5-to-4 rulings will soon begin to attract more attention, and be seen in a new way. The liberal position on cases will become the “women are from Venus” perspective, sensitive and nuanced; the conservative position will become the “men are from Mars” insensitive prejudice, chauvinistic and simplistic.Clinton appointee Justice Stephen Breyer’s habitually siding with the girls can be discounted as the enlightened exception that proves the male chauvinist rule.Excerpt Read more at investors.com …

MARINE OFFICER UNIFORMS HARD TO TELL FROM ENLISTED, ETC., by R.W. Gaines GySgt USMC Ret.

I have long known that the Marine dress blues were redesigned in 1947, but I was not aware of the reasons behind this. But alas, there is a story here too. Myself, I have always thought that the old blues blouse w/o the pockets looked better than the new version. I have mentioned this before on my sites and forums, and received a few responses from old salts stating that they had been issued old style blues after 1947, and most disagreed with my opinion preferring the appearance of the new blouse w/pockets.

Once again, a few facts related to the above have come to my attention from the writings of Colonel Robert Debs Heinl USMC Ret., deceased.

Where Is Obama Leading Us? The Poorhouse!

The Woodward Report ^ | August 4, 2010 | Jack CurtisPosted on Wednesday, August 04, 2010 5:10:14 PM by honestabe010

The Pied Piper first led the rats and then the children out of Hamelin; we still have our rats and our Pied President is leading our children into poverty. The Obamacrats seem to like poverty: they have followed Bill Clintons’ successfully reformed Federal aid for dependent children system that shrank the welfare rolls with what amounts to the largest welfare spending increase ever.

When government pays for something, you get more of it.Irony abounds here: the welfare trap closes particularly on single black women –girls, really- who have children but lack the skills or the attitude necessary to support them or to help them grow into useful citizens. The life of a perpetual welfare client is a life sure enough-but it doesn’t offer much, either to the welfare clients or to the larger society. Apparently, the Obamacrats like to keep such folk around instead of helping them off welfare as Clinton did, maybe they vote Democratic.Perpetuating poverty via welfare is a good start but the Hope and Change go far beyond; several departments of government are now aimed at lowering the U.S. living standard and keeping it down. While you doubt that, remember not so long ago when mothers didn’t have to work and young people worked their way through college. The actual living standard has already declined behind a screen of technology; family earnings have declined too.But we need to tour the Obama Poverty Manufacturing complex while translating the political euphemisms into plain English; we’ll begin with Obama’s Departments of Energy and Transportation. Energy Secretary Chu said that the U.S. must use less energy; Transport boss LaHood said un-motorized transport will gain resources from motorized. Both are relying on regulation and Congressional help as they proceed…Excerpt Read more at thewoodwardreport.com …
