Ann Coulter: Media ‘Will Lie About the Economy’ To Get Obama Reelected

October 15, 2011 Leave a comment

Just how far are the media willing to go to get Barack Obama reelected?

As conservative author Ann Coulter told Fox News’s Sean Hannity Friday evening, “He will have the entire mainstream media bucking for him and they will lie about the economy. ‘Oh, it’s a turnaround, don’t stop him now’” (video follows with transcript and commentary):

ANN COULTER: I mean, Wall Street gave its biggest donation in world history to Obama. Why don’t they protesting Obama? They don’t know what they’re protesting. They’re brainless. They’re brainwashed and yes, there is always the possibility of violence with the mob.

SEAN HANNITY, HOST: All right. Did you ever give Chris Christie his inhaler back?

COULTER: I did because I’m now looking at Romney-Cain.

HANNITY: Wait a minute. Excuse me. His breathalyzer back.

(LAUGHTER)

COULTER: That was for non-regular Hannity viewers, they referenced to a mistake made by Obama.

HANNITY: Yes.

COULTER: And I want you to leave Obama alone, give the poor guy a break. He’s still in grief over the cancellation of the first two weeks of the NBA season. Just back off.

HANNITY: I’m sorry if I’m going after the president. Well, it’s getting cold, he can’t play golf so he must be really upset. All right. But here’s what I want to ask you, very simple. Now, who do you support?

COULTER: Romney-Cain, 2012.

HANNITY: OK. Romney-Cain, not Cain-Romney?

COULTER: Only because Cain has never held elective office before. And I’d really want to defeat Obama. And I think it’s very dangerous around someone who’s never held elective office. But I must say, you and I are just saying before we went on, every one of these candidates, even the nut candidates, are better than John McCain. Forget about how much better they are than Obama, the current occupant of the White House. So, I’d be happy with any of them. I think Romney has been magnificent in these debates. You have to go with what you have.

HANNITY: As bad as Obama’s numbers are, can he make a comeback? In other words, could Republicans get overconfident and say, oh, unemployment is nine percent, he’s in the 30s in terms of his popularity, 50 million Americans in poverty.

COULTER: To some extent. Yes. And you have to remember that he will have the entire mainstream media bucking for him and they will lie about the economy. “Oh, it’s a turnaround, don’t stop him now.” But he doesn’t understands the economy. He’s done exactly the opposite of everything Ronald Reagan did and he’s gotten the opposite results. I mean, you could turn around by becoming the reincarnation of Ronald Reagan. What do you think the odds of him doing that? And by the way, that one could turn the economy because once President Romney and Vice President Cain get into office, it’s going to take 18 months to work through this.

HANNITY: Yes.

COULTER: And then we are going to bring in Chris Christie as Mariano Rivera, he’s getting closer, eight years out, and he will clean-up anything Romney and Cain left be find.

Elderly patients condemned to early death by secret use of do not resuscitate orders

October 15, 2011 1 comment

Elderly patients are being condemned to an early death by hospitals making secret use of “do not resuscitate” orders, an investigation has found.

The orders – which record an advance decision that a patient’s life should not be saved if their heart stops – are routinely being applied without the knowledge of the patient or their relatives.

On one ward, one-third of DNR orders were issued without consultation with the patient or their family, according to the NHS’s own records. At another hospital, junior doctors freely admitted that the forms were filled out by medical teams without the involvement of patients or relatives.

Under medical guidelines, the orders should only be issued after senior staff have discussed the matter with the patient’s family. A form, signed by two doctors, is then placed in the patient’s notes to record what decision was taken.

The findings emerged in spot checks of 100 hospitals undertaken by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), an official watchdog, earlier this year.

A charity for the elderly said the disclosures were evidence of “euthanasia by the backdoor,” with potentially-lethal notices being placed on the files of patients simply because they were old and frail.

VADUM: Marxist mobocracy

October 15, 2011 2 comments

Abraham Lincoln rightly denounced the “mobocratic spirit.” James Madison considered it the sa- cred duty of government to protect property rights from the violent whims of the mob: “That is not a just government, nor is property secure under it, where the property which a man has in his personal safety and personal liberty, is violated by arbitrary seizures of one class of citizens for the service of the rest.”

Lincoln and Madison would not have looked kindly upon the pro-redistributionist political street theater under way in urine- and garbage-saturated urban parks across the nation.

In an insult to the intelligence of the American people, the leaders of “Occupy Wall Street” piously claim that their movement is in the best traditions of nonviolent protest.

These class warriors are lying. The whole idea of these mass protests is to provoke the police and cause mass arrests, which the organizers can then use for propaganda purposes.

This exercise in Marxist mobocracy began on Sept. 17 in Lower Manhattan as the “U.S. Day of Rage.” This is a more honest moniker because it makes clear that the demonstrators are the polar opposite of the Tea Party movement, which seeks to protect America’s economic freedoms from the statist onslaught of the Obama administration. The leftist mob wants a radical transformation of American society in which government is expanded exponentially.

Occupy Wall Street is led by New York’s Working Families party, a front group for ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now), Service Employees International Union (SEIU), AFL-CIO and street-thug battalions from the various neo-communist organizations such as National People’s Action and Democratic Socialists of America

Ending the Discussion of “Fair Share” (What is the maximum % of income someone should pay in taxes?)

October 15, 2011 Leave a comment

Let’s talk about “fair share.” President Obama certainly wants to. He’s “all in” on the notion that “the rich” don’t pay their “fair share” of taxes in this country. Indeed, he’s wagering his re-election on the bet that a majority of voters will agree with him. When the tyranny of the majority succeeds, Obama will win, too.

As parents, one of our most important tasks is to know when to say “no” to our children. We all recognize a “brat” when we see one — a child who’s never been told “no”, and whines and complains until he or she gets his or her way. ”Shame on his parents!”, or perhaps that’s not politically correct to say anymore. But bratty children grow up to be bratty voters, too.

Unfortunately our political system often rewards the political equivalent of the irresponsible parent. Using Other People’s Money, irresponsible politicians promise the world, and the bratty voters like it. Once elected, these politicians do their best to deliver the goods. It’s alright, they say, because of their interpretation of the General Welfare and Commerce clauses of the Constitution. Others beg to differ…

Sadly, under such a system, no amount of revenue to the government is ever enough, because human wants are themselves unlimited. Therefore, those with a lot of assets, with “a lot” being defined by the politics of envy, become natural targets for the boundless benevolence of these irresponsible people – voters and politicians alike.

At least one prominent media figure is finally on to the correct way to put a lid on this ruinous line of “fair share” reasoning. Most recently, it was Stuart Varney.

Cain Proposes Electrified Border Fence

October 15, 2011 3 comments

Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain said Saturday that part of his immigration policy would be to build an electrified fence on the country’s border with Mexico that could kill people trying to enter the country illegally…

Mr. Cain added that he also would consider using military troops “with real guns and real bullets” on the border to stop illegal immigration.

The remarks were among the most pointed yet by Mr. Cain about illegal immigration, and they come as he is enjoying a surge in national political polls on the back of his victory in a recent Florida straw poll..

It is not the first time that Mr. Cain has floated the idea of an electrified fence. He has told the story many times of a caller to his former radio show who chastised him for talking about building a border fence, saying that such an idea was impractical.

“It’s going to be 20 feet high. It’s going to have barbed wire on the top. It’s going to be electrified. And there’s going to be a sign on the other side saying, ‘It will kill you — Warning.’” At an earlier rally, on the campus of Tennessee Tech University in Cookeville, Tenn., he added that the sign would be written “in English and in Spanish.”

“This nation has always been a nation with wide open doors,” Mr. Cain said at the second rally. “We want to make it easy for people to come through the front door. And we’re going to shut off the back door so you don’t have to sneak into America.”

Occupy Phoenix: Banks Are Evil, Government’s Evil, and Jan Brewer’s a “Lying Whore” With Alzheimer’s

October 15, 2011 1 comment

“Legalize Marijuana. Gov. Brewer Has Alzheimers (sic). Lying Whore.”

That’s what was written on the protest sign that welcomed us to the “Occupy Phoenix” demonstration in downtown Phoenix this afternoon — and at least that sign was spelled correctly (almost).

There were hippies, teachers, communists, anarchists, stoners, militant black guys, people dressed as cows, people dressed as cops, people with guns, and they all have one thing in common: they’re mad as hell and they’re not gonna take it anymore.

What Phoenix’s occupiers are mad about varies, depending on who you ask.

According to Darren Lansing, who was interviewed while shirtless and blowing bubbles, his gripe’s with the politicians.

“[We've got to] get the money out of the hands of the politicians and back to the public,” he tells New Times.

When asked how he plans to do it, Lansing says “we’re doing it right now, man.”

Apparently, blowing bubbles is the key to redistributing wealth. Who knew?

On the steps of the old Phoenix City Hall, on the east end of Cesar Chavaz Plaza, speakers screeched through a P.A. system to the 1,000-plus crowd, and at one point, protested corporate greed by asking the crowd to show off their best “jazz hands,” which they did.

With everyone pissed off at someone or some thing, the overall theme of the demonstration was the following: money — someone’s got it, and the occupiers want it….

The ‘Third Way’ Bubbles Are Bursting

The ‘Third Way’ Bubbles Are Bursting:

When the financial crisis hit three years ago, many gleeful leftists assumed that the long-anticipated failure of the free-market system had finally come and that this crisis would do for capitalism what the fall of the Berlin Wall did for communism. In fact, it is not capitalism that is failing.

We are beginning to see this in Europe, where the debt crisis is a crisis of the welfare state. I think we are also about to see it, possibly in a more spectacular way, in another leading example of a capitalism-socialism hybrid: the so-called “state capitalism” of China.

As the global recession began, the government of China chose to weather the economic storm by followed the same rotten advice we were getting back here: the Keynesian idea of “stimulating” the economy with borrowed government money. They just took that idea more seriously…..

A god of our age – Who was Steve Jobs?

October 15, 2011 Leave a comment

Steve Jobs

Rosebud.

Seventy years ago Orson Welles directed Citizen Kane, which critics still praise as the most innovative film ever. Welles modeled the main character, Kane, on a famous northern California magnate who revolutionized the media of his day, William Randolph Hearst.

“Rosebud” was Kane’s dying declaration, and the narrative structure of the film emphasized the work of a reporter trying to figure out the meaning of that word and the meaning of Kane’s life. Everyone he interviewed saw Kane through the prism of his own preoccupations. The reporter ended up much like the blind man feeling different parts of the elephant and thinking he’s in the presence of a tree trunk, a snake—or something else.

When Steve Jobs died on Oct. 5, newspapers and airwaves (along with iPhones and iPads) were flush with accounts of the Apple founder’s life and legacy—but each biographer seemed to recreate Jobs in the beholder’s own image:

Those wanting a classic American success story described Jobs as the college dropout who co-created the first user-friendly computer and became a multimillionaire at age 25.

Those crafting a moral tale about never giving up…..

GOP Nomination: Wild Ride Ahead

October 15, 2011 Leave a comment

Okay, it is officially political chaos out there. For months, Republicans have flirted with having a ‘frontrunner’ for the GOP nomination. Sometimes, the ‘frontrunner’ has not even been a candidate – like Donald Trump and Governor Mike Huckabee.

There have been ‘if she or he ran’ frontrunners like Governor Sarah Palin and Governor Chris Christie. There have been the ‘comings and goings’ of various candidates as leaders in the latest political polls like Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann and Governor Rick Perry.

And, there is the latest frontrunner, businessman Herman Cain – the author of the 9-9-9 plan. So far, nothing has gone according to script – at least the script of the mainstream political commentators and pundits.

Early on, some believed that the nomination could be a ‘runaway train.’ Basically, one candidate would build a head of steam and move toward the nomination in a slow lumbering, but unstoppable, single motion (like Bob Dole). So far, that has not happened.

House Democrats call for bank fee probe (It was the Rat’s Bill that forced the fees)

October 15, 2011 Leave a comment

A member of Congress and other House Democrats are asking the U.S. Attorney General to investigate whether American banks have illegally gotten together to raise fees charged to consumers for banking services.

Rep. Peter Welch of Vermont, the Democratic Chief Deputy Whip in the House of Representatives, told reporters Thursday he has sent a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder urging him to explore whether banks have engaged in what’s called “price signaling,” a tacit agreement not to compete on matters such as the strategy and implementation of what consumers must pay for services.

Welch’s letter was co-signed by Reps. John Conyers (D-Mich.), Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz.), Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) and Michael Honda (D-Calif.).

Ellison said Bank of America’s (BAC, Fortune 500) recent announcement to raise the monthly fee for using a debit card to $5 “may be a signal to others that, ‘hey, lift up your prices and we’ll all just do it,’ but I think that’s why we need the AG to inspect and investigate to find out whether the consumer’s interest is being served.”

At a news conference on Capitol Hill, Welch declined to illustrate how to distinguish between the normal business practice of charging what the market will bear and illegal collusion, which he says could be a violation of federal antitrust laws.

What does it mean? Sarah Palin changes Facebook profile from ‘Republican’ to ‘Conservative’

October 15, 2011 2 comments

She has always been known as a Tea Party darling as well as a staunch Republican.

But now Sarah Palin has nailed her political colours to the mast and changed her Facebook profile from Republican to ‘Conservative‘.

The move on the ‘political views’ section of her page has left political commentators struggling to decipher what the the former Alaska governor is trying to say.

(GRAPHIC AT LINK)

One long-time blogger and Palin supporter wrote: ‘I suppose one could draw a multitude of conclusions regarding this status change.

‘I know that I certainly have. You can be certain that any move Sarah Palin makes has been well thought out and is with purpose.

‘Could she possibly be sending a message to the RNC that they need to strengthen the conservative planks of the Republican party.

‘Perhaps her promise of ‘sudden and relentless reform’ as addressed in her Indianola speech and more recently in her October 7th St. Louis speech is a sign that as in the past, neither party is safe from her scrunity.

‘One thing is for sure, time will tell.’

The news comes as polls continued to indicate that Republicans aren’t sold on Mitt Romney and they’ve been looking for other presidential candidates.

At least eight other Republicans have seen their standings soar in GOP primary surveys since the beginning of the year…..

Obama Admitted He Is Responsible for Fast and Furious

Obama press conference | 10/15/2011 | me

Posted on Saturday, October 15, 2011 4:22:21 PM by teenyelliott

While watching the press conference with Obama and the president of S. Korea, I heard Obama shoot himself in the foot. A reporter asked Obama about the Iran plot, and how far up the chain he thought it went.

Obama replied saying that there were those in the Iranian government who knew of the plot. When asked if he thought Ahmadinejad knew about the attempted attack, he said, and I paraphrase, “Even if Ahmadinejad didn’t specifically know, he is the one responsible and must answer for what the people in his government do.”

So if amalamadingdong did not know, according to Obama he is still responsible.

Using that logic, would the same not be true for Obama regarding Fast and Furious???

If someone could find that quote in the press conference video I think conservative commentators and maybe even congresscritters could use it against our own Great Leader.

John Dummett: The “Hidalgo” of 2012| The Post & Email:

…..John has also taken on the one subject no other candidate will touch, the question of Barak Obama’s eligibility. John has been granted “in dicta” standing by the Ninth Circuit Court, one of the most liberal in the nation, to file a lawsuit challenging Obama’s status as a “natural born citizen” as prescribed in the Constitution, the Naturalization Act of 1790, and an 1875 Supreme Court decision (Minor vs. Happersett, 88 U S 162).

Essentially what that says is that John can show harm to his political aspirations from the Obama candidacy, that of a candidate not eligible to serve as President of the United States of America. All of the Republican Party presidential candidates are well aware of this matter, as are all Senators, Congressmen, and the leadership of the Republican Party machine yet they do nothing, they say nothing.

They do nothing and say nothing because there are Republicans waiting in the wings who are also not eligible to run for President, but will be promoted by the party machine when it suits their purpose. The Constitution just gets in their way of their later plans if they challenge Barak Obama’s eligibility status…..

There’s nothing worse than a bored law enforcement officer, as a few Beverly, Massachusetts residents learned firsthand when the local police went around checking vehicles for unlocked doors and open windows. Owners received warnings for failing to protect their property and officers proceeded to lock every door they could, including vehicles with their keys still inside.

How much difference is there, really, between the far-Left, the far-Right, and overt white supremacists? How do the public stances of Michael Moore, Pat Buchanan, and David Duke compare? Proponents of both extreme views now think and sound so much alike, they sound like soulmates. Somehow these fringe characters have moved so far around the edges that they have arrived at the same territory, spouting identical positions in copycat rhetoric on such issues as Iraq, the broader War on Terror, and the Jewish state of Israel.

Mormons tried to defend huxley-ian England against Christian Russia…

October 15, 2011 Leave a comment

In 1917, an amazing novel was written by author Victor Rousseau Emanuel, a full 32 years before a somewhat similar novel was written by George Orwell, the famously titled “1984″.

Like “1984″, Emanuel’s book dealt with a future utopian/dystopian society, but his book “Messiah of the Cylinder” (MOTC) did not shy away from overt religious or spiritual issues.

Both of these books were set in a future-to-be England, and this reviewer found MOTC’s future England to be a curious mixture of 1984′s England and that of another future England, the one of Aldous Huxley‘s “Brave New World“.

There are two principle worldviews competing for the hearts of the novel’s characters: secular/religious humanism versus biblical/cultural Christianity.

Other supporting world movements were also mentioned in the novel, as well.

I include the brief excerpts here. The novel will have to be read by any interested person to gain the context of the story.

SPOILER ALERT!

. . . . . . . . . . .

***

— PAGE 93 — “”Russia,” he continued, “crushed her revolution, too, as she had crushed earlier anarchistic outbreaks. But though she has discovered the glow paint, she has not the Ray. The Federation is consequently at war with her, for her antiquated ideals make her a menace to civilization. Besides, we need her wheat- fields. We have an army of ten thousand men, two from each of the five Provinces, and have cooped up the young Tsar, Alexander, with his army of a million men, in Tula. His surrender is expected daily.” “

. . .

— PAGE 260 —

“She gathered her strength with a last effort of will. *The plan was of long standing. Events hastened it. Mehemet knew it. Britain was to have a God again, Mehemet’s God, and the American Mormons were to unite with us, for their faith is nearly the same. The people would have a god, and this would unite all nations against the Christian Russians. They are in Stockholm. The American battleplanes are on their way to help us against them. When Sanson was dead the guards were to join the air- scouts. Now you must go. Save your Elizabeth. Kill Sanson. I can say no more. Escape — ” “

(Context: England had been taken over by an agressive Darwinian-atheistic-communistic regime. Russia still had a Czarist Christian Russian government. Oh, by the way, the novel is set in the year 2017, albeit written in 1917!!!)

. . . . .

—PAGE 298 — “The Guard cheered frantically. I heard the cry “America!” If this was the Mormon fleet, come to aid Lemb- ken, there was no doubt with which side it would join. Perhaps the Guard knew already that Sanson had outwitted Lembken and outbid him for its support.”

(Context: America had been taken over by a Mormon-theocratical government. Remember, this is set in the year 2017.)

. . . . .

— PAGE 311 —

“Three months have passed. It is Easter Day, and we have only begun to struggle with the difficulties before us.

But we are working with a faith that will over- come all obstacles. All the world is at work, for the same impulse was felt simultaneously in every land. The Mormon airplanes never arrived, because, practically at the same hour, America rose in revolt against her masters. And the Sanson regime has been swept away forever. “

(Context: This is the epilogue near the end of the book.)

. . .

— PAGE 313 —

“I call to mind the second huge public gathering on the day after the Revolution, when the dread of massacre had proved unfounded. The populace had been taught to believe that the Russians were blood- thirsty savages, instead of which we discovered child-like enthusiasts. It was a shock to most of us to discover that they considered themselves Cru- saders, upon a mission to restore Christ to the world. I recall vividly the great red crosses on the breasts of their white uniforms, the icon banners that are still flapping everywhere; then the people’s wonder and terror at the horses ; lastly the young Tsar’s en- trance into the capital, to attend the reconsecration of the Temple, and the amazing influence of king- ship upon a crowd that had never known reverence or loyalty, except through fear.

Then the universal joy at the release of all the inmates of the defectives and moron shops, the tears and shouts that accompanied the restoration to their families, of those who had been believed lost for- ever; husbands and wives, parents and children, brothers and sisters, friends and friends. No one was afraid to be glad. It was as if a dark cloud had rolled away and disclosed the sun.

And the astonishment and enthusiasm as the people listened to the teachings of Christianity. After three months there are still crowds at all the street corners, hearing the doctrines and the story of Christ from priests and missionaries. “

That’s enough commentary and excerpting from me for now.

Bachmann signs border security pledge [The BIG Announcement??]

October 15, 2011 1 comment

Michele Bachmann, campaigning in Perry, Iowa, hit border security hard in a clear bid to contrast herself with Rick Perry, per Kay Henderson:

By signing this one, Bachmann is promising that she will secure the border if she’s elected president.

Van Hipp of South Carolina, chairman of Americans for Securing the Borders, told me in an interview that too many candidates have paid mere “lip service” to the issue. “Nothing really gets done,” Hipp said. “We believe by having a pledge like this it really is the best way to hold the politicians’ feet to the fire so we’re calling on all federal candidates for president, for senate and for the House to sign the pledge to secure the border of this country and to make America safer.” Continue Reading

According to Hipp, the group issued this “pledge” challenge in the “past week or so” and Bachmann is the first presidential candidate to sign it. “The first one with the backbone to step up to the plate and get serious about this is Michele Bachmann,” Hipp said.

I asked if his group had heard from the Perry campaign (it hasn’t) and I specifically asked whether Rick Perry’s support for the Texas policy which grants a college tuition break to illegal immigrants in some way “disqualifies” Perry on the immigration issue.

“We want him to sign the pledge,” Hipp said. “…We are looking forward to the other candidates signing the pledge as well.”

America is not now and cannot in the future be a place for unrestricted individual enterprise

October 15, 2011 1 comment

At a campaign stop in Scranton, Pa, Presidential Candidate Woodrow Wilson had the following to say:

Of course this was intended to be a government of free citizens and of equal opportunity, but how are we going to make it such–that is the question. Because I realize that while we are followers of Jefferson, there is one principle of Jefferson’s which no longer can obtain in the practical politics of America. You know that it was Jefferson who said that the best government is that which does as little governing as possible, which exercises its power as little as possible. And that was said in a day when the opportunities of America were so obvious to every man, when every individual was so free to use his powers without let or hindrance, that all that was necessary was that the government should withhold its hand and see to it that every man got an opportunity to act as he would. But that time is passed. America is not now and cannot in the future be a place for unrestricted individual enterprise. It is true that we have come upon an age of great cooperative industry. It is true that we must act absolutely upon that principle.

Let me illustrate what I mean. You know that it used to be true in our cities that every family occupied a separate house of its own, that every family had its own little premises, that every family was separated in its life from every other family. But you know that that is no longer the case, and that it cannot be the case in our great cities. Families live in layers. They live in tenements, they live in flats, they live on floors, they are piled layer upon layer in the great tenement houses of our crowded districts. And not only are they piled layer upon layer, but they are associated room by room so that there is in each room sometimes in our congested districts a separate family.

Now, what has happened in foreign countries, in some of which they have made much more progress than we in handling these things, is this: In the city of Glasgow, for example, which is one of the model cities of the world, they have made up their minds that the entries, that hallways, of great tenements are public streets. Therefore the policeman goes up the stairway and patrols the corridors. The lightning department of the city sees to it that the corridors are abundantly lighted, and the staircases. And the city does not deceive itself into supposing that the great building is a unit from which the police are to keep out and the city authority to be excluded, but it says: “These are the high-ways of human movement, and wherever light is needed, wherever order is needed, there we will carry the authority of the city.”

And I have likened that to our modern industrial enterprise. You know that a great many corporations, like the Steel Corporation, for example, are very like a great tenement house. It isn’t the premises of a single commercial family. It is just as much a public business as a great tenement house is a public highway. When you offer the securities of a great corporation to anybody who wishes to purchase them, you must open that corporation to the inspection of everybody who wants to purchase. There must, to follow out the figure of the tenement house, be lights along the corridor; there must be police patrolling the openings; there must be inspection wherever it is known that men may be deceived with regard to the contents of the premises. If we believe that fraud lies in wait for us, we must have the means of determining whether fraud lies there or not.

So you see, they’re not going to outright nationalize industry. No no, they’re only going to nationalize a small corridor, if they even go that far. They’ll just make progress. They’ll make haste, slowly. There needs to be inspections, which means they’ll regulate everything to death. It’s regulation, not socialism. It’s social regulation. Ronald Reagan said: (20 minutes in)

Now it doesn’t require expropriation or confiscation of private property or business to impose socialism on a people. What does it mean whether you hold the deed to the — or the title to your business or property if the government holds the power of life and death over that business or property?

That perversion took place in the early 20th century. Under Wilson and two Roosevelts, among many, many other people at the time. Governors, congress, advisors, judges, and more. And we’ve been stuck with it ever since.

Amazon.com: Customer Reviews: Killing Lincoln: The Shocking Assassination That Changed America Forever

October 15, 2011 1 comment

Having read quite a few books on Lincoln including most recently, David Herbert Donald‘s masterful biography, I found this tome lacking. Bill should stick to autobiography and political punditry. He will bring people to the subject that haven’t been there before, and that’s all good. But, Lincoln has been covered and covered, and if you’re going to write about him, you should have something really new to impart – if there is anything left to be said at all.

Congressman Calls for Executive Action to Suppress Congressional Rebellion

October 15, 2011 1 comment

Contending that Congress’ failure to enact President Obama’s “Jobs Bill” amounts to “disloyalty to the duly authorized ruler of this nation,” Representative Jesse Jackson, Jr. (D-Ill) called for “extraordinary measures to restore orderly compliance with the steps the President deems necessary for the country.”

“No one can argue that these are not critical times for America,” Jackson said. “The time for disputation has passed. It is now time for action. Since Congress will not obey, the President must take the actions he thinks appropriate by using his executive powers unilaterally.”

Jackson sought to draw parallels with the secession crisis of 1861. “Just as Lincoln refused to tolerate the disobedience of the southern states, so too, must President Obama stand firm against the enemies of progressive reform.” Lincoln’s efforts to deal with secession included raising an army without Congressional approval, arresting opponents of his policies, and suppressing newspapers that editorialized against his Administration.

The specific action that Jackson urged Obama to take on the jobs issue was for the President to order that the 15 million who are unemployed be immediately hired by the federal government. The Congressman estimated that at a salary of $40,000/year, this would cost only $600 billion/year.

“The action needed is so simple and affordable that opposition can only stem from seditious motives,” Jackson insisted. Jackson dismissed objections that there would be no meaningful work for this new army of federal employees. “There’s certainly lots of things they could be doing to improve this country. They could pick up the litter that uglifies our streets and highways. They could provide domestic services like cooking and cleaning our homes. They could work in the fields planting, tending, and harvesting our crops. But even if they did nothing we’d still be injecting $600 billion of stimulus into the economy.”

Jackson wasn’t alone in casting Congressional refusal to pass the President’s jobs bill in stark terms. Representative Linda Sanchez (D-CA) called the GOP’s opposition “unpatriotic.” “They’re not concerned with our country’s economic well-being,” Sanchez maintained. “Their only goal is to defeat President Obama. They are enemies of America. The President should act accordingly.”

Plot Against Second Amendment

Plot Against Second Amendment:

The government-sanctioned gunrunning operation, Fast and Furious, was a plot to undermine Second Amendment rights in the United States, National Rifle Association president Wayne LaPierre charged on Friday in an exclusive interview with Newsmax.TV.

“It’s the only thing that makes any sense,” LaPierre said. “Over a period of two or three years they were running thousands and thousands of guns to the most evil people on earth. At the same time they were yelling ’90 per cent… of the guns the Mexican drug cartels are using come from the United States.’

Royal Navy ordered to turn ship’s guns around (because they were pointing at Michelle’s hotel room)

October 15, 2011 1 comment

A British Royal Navy ship was ordered to turn its guns around because they were parked pointing at a hotel room Michelle Obama was staying in.

Fearing the First Lady might be in danger, minders ordered the captain of the HMS Edinburgh stationed in Cape Town, South Africa, to switch them away from her five-star suite.

The U.S. agents have since been accused of overreacting after it emerged the Sea Dart missiles were, in fact, loaded with blanks having been used during a ceremony in honour of a sailor who had died.

Former Royal Navy officer Mike Critchley told the Daily Mirror: ‘This is typical American Secret Service going over the top.

‘I would have thought that they could trust their British allies to not put a missile through the bedroom window of the First Lady. It is unfortunate that this happened at an extremely sad time for the ship.’ Mrs Obama was on an official visit to South Africa in June and was staying in a luxury suite at the five star Table Bay Hotel.

Oh, Super: Romney Consulted With Obama Mass Sterilization Expert and Science Czar John Holdren

October 15, 2011 1 comment

The ever-morphing policy positions of Mitt Romney are sufficiently disturbing on their own.

But if it’s true that Romney consulted with Obama’s crazed ‘Science Czar’ John Holdren, he should step out of the GOP race today.

Barack Hussein Obama has clotted the executive branch with unaccountable “czars” — unsavory characters too extreme to be confirmed for cabinet positions even by a hyper-partisan, Democrat-controlled Senate. Among the most alarming of these malevolent lunatics is Science Czar John Holdren, a participant in ClimateGate who has advocated de-developing America and putting sterilants in the public water supply…

…Holdren has also spoken in favor of forced abortions, confiscation of babies, targeted as well as mass involuntary sterilization, bureaucratic regulation of family size, and global authoritarian government. If there is a line between ultra-left ideologue and evil maniac, Holdren clearly crosses it. No one to the right of Pol Pot would want John Holdren advising our leaders.

This brings us onto still more common ground between Barack Obama and Willard “Mitt” Romney. From an official memo released by Willard’s office when he was Governor of Taxachusetts, announcing “Strict New Clean Air Regulations“ [i.e., Cap and Trade]…

…Sound familiar? Obama wanted to impose Cap & Trade nationwide, but it would so obviously cripple the economy that he couldn’t get it through a Democrat Senate that was radical enough to pass ObamaCare — the national version of RomneyCare.

Now to the even scarier part: In the development of greenhouse gas policy, Romney Administration officials have elicited input from environmental and economic policy experts. These include John Holden [sic], professor of environmental policy at Harvard University…

Of course, that was back in 2005. By now everyone knows that global warming is a hoax, and CO2 is harmless. Everyone except Mittens, that is. He continues to proclaim that economic activity makes it be too hot out.”

Romney’s shape-shifting positions are so flagrant that even Democrats are producing flip-flop videos of the sort that pulverized John Kerry in 2004.

Look, folks: I’ll support Mitt Romney against Barack Obama if he’s the nominee. But he’s not the nominee. Herman Cain, Michele Bachmann, Rick Perry, Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich are all vastly superior candidates — and vastly more electable in the general — than Mitt Romney.

We don’t need another John McCain or Bob Dole. We don’t need another mushy centrist with ill-defined principles. Too much is at stake this year. While there may not be a Reagan in the race, there are Constitutional conservatives to choose from. And choose from them we must if this Republic is to survive.

October 15, 2011: The Day Obama’s Army occupied the Free World:

….. Blame the cunning of Marxist strategy. Pretend your protesters are saving abused civilians from the big bad banks and greedy corporations; trot out “democracy” as main motivation for clamorous uprisings; repeat the lie that it was “democracy” that returned Egypt to the control of the Muslim Brotherhood.

You’re more worried that Obama bypassed Congress to send troops to aid Africa anti-insurgency on Friday night?

That was just for showmanship. Its Marxist message: Obama with all the trappings that come with the highest office anywhere in the world can do whatever he wants and Congress can’t stop him.

Ironic, that Canada, America’s best friend and top trading partner would be one of the 82 countries now under the Occupation of Obama’s Army.

While it is well known that hard core socialism has been the underbelly of Canadian politics for decades, even with a Conservative Government in Ottawa and a conservative currently holding the mayoral chair in Toronto, Obama’s Army has moved the status of socialism in Canada from underbelly to official. (Will someone let Prime Minister Harper know?)

Ironic, too, that the Marxist plan…..

Next time you call a talk radio station, beware: The FBI may be listening.

According to WMAL.com, “The FBI has awarded a $524,927 contract to a Virginia company to record as much radio news and talk programming as it can find on the Internet. …

The FBI says it is not playing Big Brother by policing the airwaves, but rather seeking access to what airs as potential evidence.” The agency’s reasons for recording all these radio programs don’t get any clearer as the news report goes on. No doubt that is intentional.

Ron Paul

 

“I happened to walk into an operating room where they were doing an abortion on a late pregnancy,” Ron Paul says in his newest campaign ad. “They lifted out a small baby that was able to cry and breathe and they put it in a bucket and put it in the corner of the room and pretended it wasn’t there.

 

“I walked down the hallway and a baby was born early, slightly bigger than the baby that they just put in a bucket and they wanted to save this baby. So they might have had 10 doctors in there, doing everything conceivable.

 

“Who are we to decide that we pick and throw one away and pick up and struggle to save the other ones?

 

“Unless we resolve this and understand that life is precious and we must protect life, we can’t protect liberty.”

Political payback behind US special forces deployment to Uganda?

Political payback behind US special forces deployment to Uganda?

Political payback behind US special forces deployment to Uganda?:

Why is the U.S. sending its troops to finish off a fractured band of bush fighters in the middle of Africa? Political payback for the quiet sacrifices of Uganda’s troops in Somalia could be one reason, experts say.

President Barack Obama announced Friday he is dispatching about 100 U.S. troops — mostly special operations forces — to central Africa to advise in the fight against the Lord’s Resistance Army. The LRA is a guerrilla group accused of widespread atrocities across several countries.

The first U.S. troops arrived Wednesday. Long considered one of Africa’s most brutal rebel groups, the Lord’s Resistance Army began its attacks in Uganda more than 20 years ago.

Obama Sends US Troops to Uganda

Tony Cartalucci

Prisonplanet.com

October 15, 2011

http://www.blogcdn.com/www.bvblackspin.com/media/2009/12/barack_obama_nobel_prize.jpg

While America occupies Iraq and Afghanistan, wages covert war on Pakistan, conducts drone attacks on Yemen and Somalia, bombards Libya, and positions for a wider confrontation with Iran and Syria, Nobel Peace Prize Laurette President Obama has now quietly, without much fanfare, sent 100 US troops to help Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni crush rebels threatening his 25 year dictatorship.

In what is essentially a “reverse-Libyan-style” intervention, the US is sending troops to crush, not assist rebels rising up against their despotic ruler. Ironically, just as with Libya’s rebels, Uganda’s rebels are also listed as a foreign terrorist organization by the US State Department. Instead of the corporate-financier contrived International Criminal Court issuing fictitious warrants for Uganda’s head of state, as was done with Qaddafi in Libya, it is the Ugandan rebel leader, Joseph Kony, who is being targeted.

Both the Ugandan government (with US assistance) and the rebels, known as the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA), are accused of perpetrating heinous atrocities against their enemies and civilian populations in their decades long conflict. In particular, Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni has just recently presided over the mass murdering and displacement of 20,000 of his own people on behalf of British corporations who sought to construct tree plantations on their land. US and British military assistance and business deals with the Ugandan government have been a ubiquitous feature throughout Museveni’s perpetual, unending term as president.

While mutilated victims of the LRA are just now being paraded in front of the public to frame the recent US troop deployment as another “humanitarian intervention,” it is more than likely that geopolitical aspirations, not humanitarian concerns, are driving this agenda. This is especially so considering just how equally abhorrent the Ugandan government’s human rights record is.

The LRA has often been harbored by the Sudanese government (now the South Sudanese government). Sudan has served as a proxy battlefield between the West and China for control over of its vast oil holdings and ultimately as part of a greater battle to control Africa’s resources. Sudan appears to have used the LRA as a sort of armed buffer between them and their neighbors, in particular, Uganda, ruled by an eager servant of the Anglo-American agenda.

A d v e r t i s e m e n t

Surely, as Africa, a forsaken continent, is already written off in the minds of many Americans, little concern and few eyebrow will be lifted as their Nobel Peace Prize-wearing president sends yet more troops off to war there, in a global military expansion quickly and alarmingly approaching the scale and scope of Adolf Hitler’s expansion across Europe and Northern Africa during World War II. This is difficult to deny when the final tally is done – the United States is conducting either covert or overt military operations in at least 8 nations – Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, Somalia, Iran, Libya, Pakistan, and now Uganda – and has 820 military installations in at least 135 countries. As Wall Street and London seek global hegemony, the price Americans pay as this tally grows will only increase. However far flung Uganda may seem, every inch of expansion by the globalists is one inch less for free humanity.

Identify the corporate-financier interests engineering and driving this agenda, boycott andreplace them.

Senators Burr & Webb Introduce Veterans Second Amendment Protection Act

October 15, 2011 Leave a comment

WASHINGTON, D.C. –-(Ammoland.com)- Today, U.S. Senators Richard Burr (R-NC) and Jim Webb (D-VA), along with 10 other cosponsors, introduced legislation that would end the arbitrary process through which the government strips veterans and other Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) beneficiaries of their Second Amendment rights.

Currently, veterans who have a fiduciary appointed to act on their behalf are deemed “mentally defective” and are reported to the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS), a system which prevents them from being able to purchase firearms in the United States.

The Veterans Second Amendment Protection Act would require a judicial authority to determine that VA beneficiaries pose a danger to themselves or others before they can be added to the FBI’s NICS.

“Taking away a Constitutional right is a serious action, and veterans should be afforded the same due process under the law as all other American citizens,” Burr said. “This legislation would protect the rights of veterans and their families by ensuring that only a proper judicial authority is able to determine who is referred to NICS. Our veterans took an oath to uphold the Constitution and they deserve to enjoy the rights they fought so hard to protect.”

“As a matter of fairness, a veteran should be permitted to purchase a firearm under the same conditions as every other American,” said Senator Webb. “This bipartisan bill ensures consistent guidelines are used for reporting citizens to the FBI, and that no veteran is needlessly stripped of their Second Amendment rights.”

The Federal Gun Control Act prohibits certain individuals who have been deemed a “mental defective” from purchasing a firearm. Currently, around 114,000 people who are receiving VA benefits have been reported to NICS, stripping them of their constitutional rights simply because VA appointed a fiduciary to act on their behalf. A fiduciary is assigned to handle disability compensation, pensions, survivors’ compensation, and other VA payments on behalf of a veteran, surviving spouse, dependent child, or dependent parent. VA’s review process for assigning a fiduciary is meant to determine one’s ability to manage VA-provided cash assistance.

The process does not determine whether they are a danger to themselves or others.

Globalist Warlord Obama Moves to Expand Africom Reach

October 15, 2011 2 comments

In addition to his wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, those underway in Yemen and Somalia – and coming soon in Iran – the warlord Obama is now dispatching troops to Uganda to do battle with the wacky yet murderous Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA).

Globalist Warlord Obama Moves to Expand Africom Reach 8e03b1fd6ec53dabe403ff14c95b grandeLord’s Resistance Army provides pretext to expand globalist reach in Africa.

Obama’s move is next step following on the heels of Gaddafi’s defeat in Libya. Obama is following to the letter a well-drafted globalist plan for Africa, one that is partially enumerated in the the LRA Disarmament and Northern Uganda Recovery Bill adopted by the U.S. Congress in 2009 and signed by Obama in early 2010. It “requires the US government to develop a new multifaceted strategy” against the LRA.

“Obama has said he is sending about 100 US soldiers to Uganda to help regional forces battle the notorious Lord’s Resistance Army,” the BBC reported on Friday. “Although combat-equipped, the troops would be providing information and advice ‘to partner nation forces,’ Mr Obama wrote in a letter to US Congress.”

Obama didn’t bother to consult Congress or abide by the Constitution. He just sent congressional leaders a letter announcing he would again violate the national sovereignty of yet another country.

“Obama’s announcement represents a highly unusual intervention for the United States,” reports the Associated Press. “Although some American troops are based in Djibouti [at the $6 billion Africom mega-base] and small groups of soldiers have been deployed to Somalia, the U.S. traditionally has been reluctant to commit forces to help African nations put down insurgencies.”

As usual, the exact opposite is the case – the U.S. military, the CIA, and their European partners manufacture insurgencies – the preferred destabilization method for the bankers.

The AP dredges up the “humanitarian crises” of Rwanda and Bosnia as cover for Obama’s move. “The change in policy could reflect the long-standing concerns of a number of high-ranking Obama advisers left scarred by the U.S. failure in the 1990s to intervene to stop the genocide in Rwanda and the belated action to finally halt the violence in Bosnia. For a current parallel, the Lord’s Resistance Army’s 24-year campaign of rebellion, rape and murder represents one of the world’s worst human rights crises today.”

Despite the brutality of the LRC, the AP has naturally declined to tell us the whole story. Uganda is a strategic asset for the United States. Back in 2005, investigative journalist Wayne Madsen reported that the U.S. had major communications and listening stations in Uganda’s Ruwenzori Mountains. Since then, Africom has set-up a sprawling operation there. Libya was its first “engagement.”

Moreover, the genocide in Rwanda was not simply blood lust between Tutsi and Hutu tribes, as dramatically depicted by the media at the time, but was ignited by several causes, most notably the intervention of the IMF in central Africa’s economy and its standard debt serving schemes resulting in famine and armed conflict, thus allowing the globalists to consolidate power.

“While the new loans [distributed to Rwanda] contributed to releasing money for the payment of debt servicing as well as equipping the armed forces, the evidence would suggest that a large part of this donor assistance was neither used productively nor was it channeled into providing relief in areas affected by famine,” writes Michel Chossudovsky.

In what is now a well-established pattern, the global elite exploited tensions created by the disastrous economic impact of its loan sharking operation and moved to establish a sphere of influence in a region historically dominated by the former colonial powers of France and Belgium.

“The civil war in Rwanda was a brutal struggle for political power between the Hutu-led Habyarimana government supported by France, and the Tutsi Rwandan Patriotic Front (RPF) backed financially and militarily by Washington,” Chossudovsky concludes. “Ethnic rivalries were used deliberately in the pursuit of geopolitical objectives. Both the CIA and French intelligence were involved.”

The IMF and World Bank played a cynical and murderous game in Uganda as well. Banker money ostensibly earmarked for the country’s economic and social reconstruction went to military destabilization operations in Rwanda and the Congo…..

Obama Channels FDR–Again (FDR speechwriter describes O to a tee in 1939!)

October 15, 2011 1 comment

One of the best FDR critiques ever written was Raymond Moley’s 1939 memoir After Seven Years. Moley had been a top aide and speechwriter for FDR from 1932 on, and it records Moley’s growing disillusionment with both FDR and the New Deal that culminated in Moley leaving the White House in 1938

There are numerous passages that will remind the contemporary reader of Obama’s narcissistic presidency. One passage in particular recounts how FDR bristled at the suggestion that his policies impaired business confidence and were therefore a drag on economic recovery:

It was Roosevelt’s insistence upon the essential unity of his policies that inevitably brought into question his understanding of economics. . . The first centered in a failure to understand what is called, for lack of a better term, business confidence. Confidence consists, on the one side, of belief in the prospect of profits and, on the other, in the willingness to take risks, to venture money. . . This Roosevelt refused to recognize. In fact, the term “confidence” became, as time went on, the most irritating of all symbols to him. He had the habit of repelling the suggestion that he was impairing business confidence by answering that he was restoring the confidence the public had lost in business leadership. . .

But, what had been done? For one thing, the confusion of the administration’s utility, shipping, railroad, and housing policies had discouraged the small individual investor. For another, the administration’s taxes on corporate surpluses and capital gains, suggesting, as they did, the belief in a recovery based upon capital investment is unsound, discouraged the expansion of producers’ capital equipment. For another, the calling of names in political speeches and the vague, veiled threats of punitive action all tore the fragile texture of credit and confidence upon which the very existence of business depends.

All sounds rather familiar. Especially the “irritating” part. Moley thought FDR’s fatal flaw was he became “overwhelmed by the illusion of his own rectitude.” Too bad Moley didn’t live long enough to witness Obama. Putting Moley’s critique of FDR next to Obama recalls one of Harry Truman’s personal axioms: “The only thing new in the world is the history you don’t know.”

WHAT IS TRUE CONSERVATISM?

by Thinkwell

William F. Buckley (1925-2008) is considered by some to be “the preeminent voice of American conservatism” during the second half of the 20th century

(May 5, 2010) — I can’t believe CINO-infested Townhall has allowed one of its authors, Diana West, to mention the natural born Citizenship issue. I quit reading Townhall in disgust about six months ago because Townhall would not touch this fundamental Constitutional issue. I found Ms. West’s article via a Google search. Perhaps I should give Townhall another chance?

With this in mind, I just ran a Google advanced search on the phrase “natural born,” limited only to the “townhall.com” domain and found no other recent articles on this subject — an absolute zero (you know, just like the _resident-in-chief). There were quite a few hits from reader comments, so at least Townhall is not actively squelching all mention of the eligibility issue, but sadly, it appears that Diana West is the only regular Townhall author who is willing to formally broach this important subject in defense of the Constitution.

With that in mind, I think I will go ahead with my cancellation of Townhall.com and just keep an eye out for individual Diana West articles (it certainly will keep the email inbox a lot tidier).

By Jim Emerson, staff writer

For the last two weeks Air Force computer specialists have been battling a computer infection of ground based computers that control drones operating over the Mideast. The administration specialists at Creech AFB, Nevada wanted to keep the incident quiet till they could eliminate the virus by themselves. Instead of asking for help the command was overwhelmed by a virus that couldn’t be easily removed. Because of the time wasted it may take a while before the extent of the infection is known and what systems have been compromised.

Keylogger

The virus affecting the ground stations was a “keylogger” virus. A keylogger is an almost unnoticeable spyware that monitors key strokes and control clicks and sent the information to an external host computer. This virus had been found on several unclassified and classified computers. As of this time investigating officials haven’t determined how the virus was introduced into the network. Because of the time wasted in trying to remove the infection the so-called smoking gun will be difficult to discover.

Is secret lair being built under the White House? West Wing vanishes behind a fence in $86 million ear-splitting project | Mail Online

October 15, 2011 1 comment

The West Wing of the White House is all-but disappearing behind an $86 million building project that is going to last for years.

And a mysterious tunnel is being built, fuelling speculation that a secret underground lair is what’s really under construction.

In recent weeks, an expanding and sometimes ear-splitting zone of excavation has enveloped the mansion’s famous office wing.

Under construction: Work goes on near the West Wing of the White House. The four-year project will cost $86 million

White House

‘Big dig’: The large green barrier that has gone up around the iconic Washington building can be seen in the background of this construction shot

Heavy equipment and metal-and-concrete superstructures are part of the vast construction project.

The front door and the Marine who guards it have disappeared behind a high green-and-white plywood fence. From Pennsylvania Avenue, all that’s visible is a sliver of second-floor roof line.

For years to come, the front yard at 1600 Pennsylvania will remain a noisy building site, say officials in charge of the White House’s ‘Big Dig‘.

Officials describe the job as an overdue upgrade of underground utilities. That includes water and sewer lines, electrical conduits, pipes for chilled and hot water and steam heat systems, and storm sewers. Heating, air conditioning and fire alarm systems are being replaced. Some systems are getting backups.

Major work: Construction includes a mysterious tunnel which has led to speculation of a secret underground lair

Major work: Building includes a mysterious tunnel which has led to speculation of a secret underground lair

To build the tunnel, crews have poured in huge concrete pylons, put up retaining walls and brought in truckloads of steel beams.

The construction site has expanded from in front of the West Wing around to the side and across a parking lot to the next-door Eisenhower Executive Office Building.

The General Services Administration, which is supervising the work, has denied the tunnel is a new shelter – just an access to the utilities.

Noise: Former White House press aide Robert Gibbs offered to spray paint the fence blocking his office view

Spokesman Sahar Wali said the steel and concrete is needed ‘to create enough space and a pathway for replacement of the new utilities infrastructure at the proper depth and location’.

She said the construction was not putting in place long-standing plans for underground office space or an underground driveway entrance.

Of course, there would not be much point in telling everyone about building a secret tunnel (after all, the emphasis is on secret).

No Heil Mitt or Barack, says Lew Rockwell.

…..These are themselves marks of decline. The mask of the State is off. And it has been off for such a long time that we can hardly remember what it looked like when it was on.

So let’s take a quick tour. If you live in a big metropolitan city, drive to the downtown post office (if it is still standing). There you will find a remarkable piece of architecture, tall and majestic and filled with grandeur. There is a liberal use of Roman-style columns. The ceilings indoors are extremely high and thrilling. It might even be the biggest and most impressive building around.

This is a building of an institution that believed in itself. After all, this was the institution that carried the mail, which was the only way that people had to communicate with each other when most of these places were first erected. The state took great pride in offering this service, which it held up as being superior to anything the market could ever provide (even if market provisions like the Pony Express had to be outlawed). Postmen were legendary (or so we were told) for their willingness to brave the elements to bring us the essential thing we needed in life apart from food, clothing, and shelter.

And today? Look at the thing that we call the post office. It is a complete wreck, a national joke, a hanger-on from a day long gone. They deliver physical spam to our mail boxes, and a few worthwhile things every once in a while, but the only time they are in the news is when we hear another report of their bankruptcy and need for a bailout…..

Americans in Denial: Futile Elections and Teflon Candidates

by Scott Lazarowitz

Recently by Scott Lazarowitz: Do Not Allow President Obama To Impose Martial Law

If these talk radio shows I listen to are indicative of the American population in general, and Republicans and conservatives in particular, then, stop the world, I’m getting off. The statists among the Republican field of presidential candidates propose to change things a little bit here and there, but in them and their supporters there is a severe psychological denial and stubborn refusal to recognize that the entire system of central planning in Washington needs to go. It is inherently flawed.

The deniers and fantasizers are saying that, as long as anyone but Barack Obama is elected in 2012, then things will get better. No, they won’t. Many people are fixated on making sure that the Republicans choose someone who is “electable,” and they actually think that the Teflon Guy, Mitt Romney, is that candidate. However, one talk show caller to the Howie Carr show in Boston this week had it right: Romney will be just like McCain was in 2008, handing the election over to Obama on a silver platter.

But, even if Romney does get elected, and given that many of these pundits and political junkies are statists and think only in the short term, they never seem to be considering what happens after Romney’s inauguration. Will he do anything about the Federal Reserve, or Wall Street? Or stop the murderous warmongering? Nope…..

Obama, Hillary Forged Petition Signatures; Who Will Prosecute

October 15, 2011 1 comment

The signatures of dozens, if not hundreds, of northern Indiana residents were faked on petitions used to place presidential candidates on the state primary ballot in 2008, The [South Bend] Tribune and Howey Politics Indiana have revealed in an investigation.

Several pages from petitions used to qualify Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama for the state’s Democratic primary contain names and signatures that appear to have been copied by hand from a petition for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jim Schellinger. The petitions were filed with the Indiana Election Division after the St. Joseph County Voter Registration Office verified individuals’ information on the documents.

You know that if this was one of the Republican campaigns, it would be national headlines. I’ve already told you about Barack Obama’s forged Selective Service Registration form for the draft (probably because he broke the law and never actually registered for the draft when he was supposed to). And, no surprise, Obama and his minions have an apparent pattern of forgery…..

IS THE UNITED STATES UNDER MARTIAL LAW?

by Dan O’Brien

The Declaration of Independence was written by Thomas Jefferson and approved by the Continental Congress on July 4, 1776

(Oct. 14, 2011) — What does knowing your Legal Person mean? It means:

Getting the government off your back and out of your pocketbook;

Not having to be licensed simply to exercise your natural rights.

No crime was committed unless you intentionally created harm to someone;

If these examples are important to you, then what you are about to learn, though bizarre, unreal, and too far out to believe, is the unfortunate truth, and vert important to know.

Basically, your Legal Person obscures your valuable American rights, described in the Declaration of Independence, and subjects you instead to the commercial world of a gazillion statutes, licenses, regulations, registrations, income taxes, permits, and sundry other burdens. Do these seem familiar?

These insidious events began when southern States, with cause, seceded from the U.S., which on March 27, 1861 temporarily disabled Congress, and therefore the “United States” central government, for lack of a quorum. Within weeks Lincoln, as Commander in Chief, declared martial rule by Executive Order, the nation’s first. You should be very angry that, thousands of Executive Orders later, we are still under martial rule.

During the turmoil of the Civil War, and the ensuing decade, the strong, pent-up commercial interests of emerging industries such as railroads, steam power, electrification, gold and silver mining, banking, and the like, began dismantling lawful control of the U.S. government through devious means, including un-ratified constitutional amendments, with the intent to advance commerce and commercialism.

RUSH: OBAMA Invades Uganda, TARGETS CHRISTIANS

October 15, 2011 1 comment

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: President Obama has deployed troops to another war, in Africa, ladies and gentlemen.

Jacob Tapper, ABC News, is reporting that Obama has sent 100 US troops to Uganda to help combat Lord’s Resistance Army. Tapper reporting today:

“Two days ago President Obama authorized the deployment to Uganda of approximately 100 combat-equipped U.S. forces

to help regional forces ‘remove from the battlefield’ — meaning capture or kill — Lord’s Resistance Army leader Joseph Kony and senior leaders of the LRA.”

I wonder how the Wall Street crowd is gonna react when they find out that Obama has sent troops to another war?

“Mr. Limbaugh, it’s just 100 peacekeepers.”

Yep, yep, yep, that’s how Libya started, and, by the way, there’s no end in sight for Libya.

The Next Black President

October 15, 2011 Leave a comment

As I look at the most recent national polls, it has suddenly dawned on me in a real way that Herman Cain could very well be the next president of the United States.{snip}

Cain has character. He has principles. He loves America. {snip}

Here’s a man who is fully immersed in a lifetime of what we refer to as “the black American experience.” He’s from the South. He lived through the civil rights movement. He didn’t grow up in Hawaii and Indonesia. He grew up and lived his whole life in America. He didn’t miraculously and inexplicably get to attend the best colleges and universities in the country for no good reason. He worked hard and studied hard and his diligence paid off. He didn’t stare wealth and accomplishment in the face and become a community organizer in response to the unfairness of the world. He took advantage of the opportunities America has to offer anyone and everyone with a good work ethic who is willing to seek them.

What a positive role model he offers to young, disaffected black males who find themselves disproportionately imprisoned – imprisoned both for actual crimes and metaphorically captives as a result of being denied family structure, fatherly religious and moral values and real hope and inspiration.{snip}

Herman Cain is every bit the adult we should look for in a president. He can be a fatherly figure to the entire nation – especially young black males who have been deprived of them by government paternalism and a culture gone mad.

It was Obama who sought to “transform” America.

But I suspect that a Cain presidency will be far more transformative in the best sense of the word – and offer far more healing for the nation.

More war? Obama to order troops deep into Africa in ‘advisory’ role

October 15, 2011 Leave a comment

OKLAHOMA CITY – Uganda. It’s a country most Americans know little about. Even this reporter knew only a little bit about this small Central African nation until recent months.

But for whatever reason, Uganda, it’s problems and its people are capturing the attention of the U.S. government, from evangelical congressmen to the president himself. The president is so disturbed by the humanitarian crisis taking place in Uganda and neighboring areas that he wants “boots-on-the-ground” in that country. In an advisory role of course. Think Vietnam, circa 1960.

But more about that shocking news in a minute.

Giving the green light to this Obama-led action deep in Africa is the power-mad, election-stealing Ugandan president, Yoweri Museveni. Considered a God-fearing, iron-fisted, “corrupt-but-stable” dictator in power for over 25 years, Museveni is reportedly “close” with members of the secretive “Family,” as exposed by writer Jeff Sharlet in his recent and revealing book The Family: The Secret Fundamentalism at the Heart of American Power.

In the portions of the book about Uganda, Museveni is “a good friend of the Family,” according to Sharlet. And most recently, we see that Museveni likely bought votes via the “printing of billions of Uganda shillings to help buy votes, thereby fueling inflation,” according to a story this week in the Black Star News of New York.

State Representative to Congress: Obama Guilty of Treason Against the United States| The Post & Email:

“IT IS TIME TO MAKE UP YOUR MIND”

October, 14 2011

New Hampshire State Representative Harry Accornero has named Obama in the commission of treason against the United States

Open letter to all Members of Congress,

I am formally asking you to bring a commission of treason against Mr. Barack Hussein Obama.

We have a President who allows our borders to be violated by illegals of any country while we are at war. He allows them work permits, access to our services and when apprehended by law enforcement refuses to have them jailed or deported. Barack Hussein Obama has crossed the line, and under Article III, Section 3 of our Constitution is guilty of treason by giving aid and comfort to the enemy and attempting to overthrow our government from within……

Earthquake? Governor Palin Changes Facebook Status From ‘Republican’ to ‘Conservative’

October 15, 2011 Leave a comment

Ok guys … Is this just a minor thing? Or a big deal? I’ll let you speculate on what it means ….

Here’s the news reported by the Sarah Palin Blog:

I was walking through the grocery store earlier today when I received a text message from a close friend asking me if I had taken note of the change on Sarah Palin’s Facebook page. I confessed that it had been an exceptionally busy day and that I had not looked at Palin’s page today. My friend then brought to my attention that under the “Info” link, Palin’s political views have been changed from “Republican” to “Conservative”. For a brief moment, it didn’t phase me as I am also a registered Republican but I chose to list “Conservative” on my Facebook page as my own political view because in my eyes, it more aptly describes my values.

I suppose one could draw a multitude of conclusions regarding this status change. I know that I certainly have. You can be certain that any move Sarah Palin makes has been well thought out and is with purpose. Could she possibly be sending a message to the RNC that they need to strengthen the conservative planks of the Republican party? Perhaps her promise of “sudden and relentless reform” as addressed in her Indianola speech and more recently in her October 7th St. Louis speech is a sign that as in the past, neither party is safe from her scrunity.

One thing is for sure, time will tell.
