The Millennium Barack
By Michael LeMieux
December 31, 2009

Barack Obama ran his campaign on many issues to “fundamentally change America.” Some of those issues seem to be very lofty goals even if it is not his job to do so or even constitutional, but when has that ever stopped a modern politician.
I have been going back over what Obama has done and said since he has entered federal service and among them are these goals.
• Ending poverty and hunger in America and around the world1
• Universal Health Care and reducing child mortality rates2
• Protecting the Environment3
• Minority rights and gender equality4
• Fighting HIV/AIDS5
• Strengthening the rule of law6
• Strengthening public education7
• Global partnership for developmen8t
Obama ran on the Democrat Party ticket and has espoused an array of items that have earmarked his agenda for change in America. But as I have researched more into the movements that affect America around the world I started seeing some very interesting things that made me wonder just whose agenda is really being plied on the American people. Is it really just the brain storm of a driven man to "fundamentally change America," or is there more to this story than meets the eye?
At the UN conference in September Barack Obama stated that the United States won’t solve the world’s problems and that we needed "…a new era of engagement with the world. Now is the time for all of us to take our share of responsibility for a global response to global challenges."
This speech stuck in my mind as familiar to other research I had done a couple of years ago. Then I remembered a very similar set of goals issued by the UN in what it called the Millennium Project or the Millennium Development Goals. I remember this because some friends and I, after hearing Candidate Obama speech on global poverty, discussed the need to focus on America before we can fix the world.
So I started looking up my data on the UN’s Millennium Development Goals (MDG) and I started to wonder just whose agenda was being sought here, that of the ambitious young Senator or the global governance seeking UN.
Here is the MDG list taken directly from their website:
1. Eradicate extreme poverty and hunger
2. Achieve universal primary education
3. promote gender equality and empower women
4. Reduce child mortality
5. Improve maternal health
6. Combat HIV/AIDS
7. Ensure Environmental Sustainability
8. Develop a global partnership for development
Notice a striking similarity to the goals of the President. Now to be fair Obama ran on more than just these items but the odds of a coincidence that he would support as his platform to “fundamentally change America” with every goal of the MDG pales beyond the coincidental.
At the least this raises the question of whether this president is pushing his vision of America or the vision of the United Nations.
It is my experience that nothing happens by accident in politics and government and when something happens it was planned to happen. In this case I believe it is much more than coincidence. What we are seeing today is the inside job of “fundamentally transforming America” into the vision of the United Nations by a puppet groomed to do exactly what he is doing.

White(house) Christmas without Christ
Gee, what a surprise! President and his family are not attending Christmas services
By Dave Macy Thursday, December 24, 2009
A writer for TIME magazine reports that the president and his family are not attending Christmas services. Gee, what a surprise! Barack Hussein Obama has consistently shown his lack of understanding of the Holy Bible, his disdain for the spiritual meaning of Christmas (no Nativity crèche in the White House), and his propensity to bow to Muslim leaders.
But the fact is that NO TRUE CHRISTIAN can support abortion and the federal funding thereof. Don’t give me the “representative of the majority” nonsense. Here we sit on the precipice of the massive mountain of federal control of the health care system in America. The vast majority, liberals included, are against this thievery—yet the arrogance of Washington and the Democratic sleaze presses on in total disregard of the American public it should be serving.
The Constitution is in the shredder and has been since the new administration began moving with Blitzkrieg speed to control the sure and certain enslavement of the people through ungodly spending bills and back room deals in which Representatives and Senators have sold what little soul they might have left.
How can a politician who claims to be a Christian—Catholic, Protestant, or otherwise—truly and with clear conscience vote for federal funding of abortion? The answer is they can’t IF they truly are Christians.
But if the United States were truly a Christian Nation and still rooted in Godly principles then there are many other “cant’s” that should be evidence of the faith.
Politicians claiming to be Christian CAN’T vote for massive irresponsible spending bills and still be good stewards of our resources.
Politicians claiming to be Christian CAN’T vote for federal control of rights that are protected by our Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
Politicians claiming to be Christian CAN’T vote for legislation that makes a mockery of marriage by condoning same sex unions.
Truth is sometimes unpalatable. When George Barna’s research shows evidence that many who call themselves Christian have moved away from the foundational principles of the faith and a majority of so called Christians do not attend church, do not read the Holy Bible, are doubters and truly have taken on the name of Christ in vain—is it any surprise that God’s influence in Washington as well as His influence in America has declined to the point of irrelevance!
We have begun to reap what has been sown. The disintegration of the family, the disregard for the sanctity of life, the growth of greed and avarice have brought us to a point reminiscent of Israel in the time of Judges. “Everyone did what was right in their own eyes”.

Obama Chooses Christmas Eve as Night of Darkness For Free World

Healthcare Bill, Freedom and the Free World
By Judi McLeod Wednesday, December 23, 2009
There may be an ornament with the face of China’s evil Mao Zedong on the White House holiday tree, but for many of the rest of us there’s an elephant right in our living room.
The elephant in our living room is what moseyed in when the mainstream media took a holiday and the mask of President Barack Obama began to crack. How long have we known in our hearts that Obama is not an American? How long have we known that even though he professes to be one, Obama is not a Christian, nor even a Christian sympathizer and that his actions over the last year prove he is not a benevolent president.
Obama wants a healthcare bill that is signed, sealed and delivered on Christmas Eve. Obama wants to ruin America and the Free Enterprise system that made America what it is.
Personal records are required to establish the legal identity of every human being on Planet Earth, but Obama’s ID was sealed off from public view before he was sworn in as the 44th President of the USA. In the reality that follows such a move, Obama could be anything. He’s the antithesis of what tens of millions of main-street Americans expect in a president. Obama is proving to be the worst enemy imaginable. Since September 11, 2001 for America and its freedom loving supporters worldwide, worst enemy could be defined as radical Muslim.
Back in March 2006 Canada Free Press (CFP) asked in a cover story, “How does a senator who came from out of the fog land himself front and center on the pages of USA Today, where he’s touted as “the new face of change and reform for the democratic party?”
CFP’s cover story went on to say, “Move over, Hillary, Barack Obama is here.
“Some Dems can trump Material Girl Madonna in reinventing themselves. During the last presidential campaign, John Kerry made much of having the same initials as President JFK.
“Barack Hussein Obama’s name only rhymes with Saddam Hussein and Osama, but he did try to parallel the life of President Abraham Lincoln with that of his own—and did it in the mainstream media.
“As Gateway Pundit aptly points out, “Lincoln was a humble man. He did not compare himself after six months in office to great men from history.”
Three years later Obama went on to win the Nobel Peace Prize after only 11 days in the office of president.
But back in March 2006, CFP pondered, “Without the media, could Barack Obama have discovered the fast track to fame?
“Looking at his day job, the Senator from Illinois is a senior lecturer in constitutional law at the University of Chicago. Make that the Rockefeller-funded U of C, a school that is Rockefeller down to the bone.
“Obama’s Dad, a Muslim from Kenya, left home when he was two. His Mom remarried and went with her new husband to Indonesia where Obama lived during his salad years. It is well known that Obama, the teenager lived with his grandparents in Hawaii, where he attended the same school attended by Hawaii royalty. Yet little is known about who Obama’s stepfather was. But some say that he was an Indonesian national and a Muslim.
“Still, Obama must have attended school in Indonesia. Is it possible that as a young Muslim boy he went to a Saudi Madras?
“Yes, that’s a possibility.
“The chapters in the Life and Times of Barack Obama always race ahead. It was during one of those chapters when we found him taking up community organizing in the Altgeld Gardens housing project on the south side of Chicago, when he converted to Christianity, formerly being secular. (brainsip.com—Now can only be searched in wayback machine).
“As a fledgling Christian, Obama didn’t join just any church. He joined the United Church of Christ.
“The United Church of Christ is very anti-Israel and supports divestment. It also sponsors speeches at its many functions by the Arab “Christian” pro-terror religious organization, Sabeel. Sabeel holds some of its biggest meetings in Chicago., (http://www.scoop.co.nz/stories/HL0510/S00139.htm).
“The Democrats attract the majority of Jewish voters and funding, and this guy is being groomed as their golden boy?
“Essentially Obama is a Christian convert—but also then a Muslim apostate.
“The “What If” category of “the new face of change and reform for the democratic party” doesn’t get written up by the mainstream media.
“What if Obama is engaged in pious fraud? This is a Muslim practice of pretending not to be Muslim to further the cause of Islam or to “defend the faith”. He becomes President and then says, “Gee…I think I want to be Muslim again” after he finds the “football” in his hands that carries the launch codes for the USA nuke forces.
“Is the “New Face” theory espoused in USA Today, New Face as in the “Portrait of Dorian Grey”?
“What if Obama’s into Pious Fraud Islam–Hudaibiyah treaty"kiss the hand of your enemy until you can cut it off”?http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/708295/posts
Not Obama?
Remember the pictures of the little kids bobbing their heads up and down at the Madrases? They are all of the age Obama would have been in back in Indonesia.
“What if the converted-to-Christianity Barack Obama decides to exercise his right to revert back?
“President George Bush converted to Methodism and Justice Thomas converted to Catholicism and Jeb Bush did as well.
“Then what?
“Currently, Obama is an apostate as far as Islam is concerned. This is a fact and not a conspiracy theory. They say all babies are born Muslim but then parents of infidel religions brainwash the baby Muslims into other lesser faiths. That is a fact.
“What must be done with an apostate of the Muslim faith? Give him a chance to convert back to Islam.
“Obama is soft on the handover of the ports to Dubai.
“Obama’s Mom met his step Dad at the East-West Center of the University of Hawaii. The Center gets money from Bill Gates, the Rockefellers and, of course the United Nations.
“Obama went to Occidental college, whose motto is “West is nearest to the East”.
“Occidental College has a historic connection to the Summer Institute of Linguistics (now known as SIL International.) Associated with the Rockefellers, SIL has something going on in Dubai (http://www.finanz-adressen.de/asien/UAE-info.html, Now can only be searched in wayback machine) Scroll down three quarters of the way until you see their blinking pyramid logo.
“Meanwhile hype notwithstanding, “the new face of change and reform for the democratic party” is no Abe Lincoln, but could be the most upwardly mobile Muslim of the millennium.”
It will be four years ago this March when these questions were being asked by CFP.
The elephant in our living room has been sitting there all that time. But at 7 o’clock on Christmas Eve day, Obama, the Christian, will pull a dark curtain down on the Free World.
On Christmas Eve, the elephant’s trumpet will sound very much like the camel’s bellow.

Obama’s Communists Now Ruling the USA: Republic is Formally Dead
Bribes, Threats and Healthcare
By Sher Zieve Wednesday, December 16, 2009
The bribes issued by Sen. Harry Reid and the threats issued by the Marxist usurper and dictator-in-Chief in order to garner votes for the ObamaCare Death Plan have now reached almost legendary proportions. In order to end cloture, Reid actually had $300 Millions for Louisiana written into the Senate’s ObamaCare Death Plan version to buy Senator Mary Landrieu’s (D-LA) vote.
It worked. Landrieu even bragged about it. Now, the would-be Chicago-style godfather Obama has threatened the hold-out Nebraska Democrat Senator Ben Nelson with closure of Nebraska’s Offutt Air Force base (which employs over 10,000 people and is the headquarters for the US Strategic Command) if he doesn’t play ball with him, the USA’s head mobster, and vote for the bill that will begin the ultimate slavery of the American people.
Note: Obama is so bent upon getting his way and destroying the USA that he is now openly—and in full view of all—threatening to place the country in even more jeopardy. The Communist Obama Government now has a stranglehold on the United States of America, its legislators and its people and he will NOT willingly let go. In fact, as his smile beams even more broadly he is squeezing ever tighter to end our lives and the life of our country.
In order to bring former Democrat and now Independent Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT) into line, Obama ordered his minions to go on a search-and-destroy mission against Lieberman’s wife Hadassah. After his Tuesday press conference, it appears that Sen. Lieberman may have folded like the proverbial cheap suit.
Here are only a few of the facts:
The ObamaCare Death Plan will gut Medicare by at least $500 Billions—in order to rid Obama & Co of Senior citizens. Seniors were forced into Medicare years ago and now they’re being told it’s time for them to die.
The pro-abortion language, if removed for the vote, will be added back in when the Senate and House cone together to “blend” the bills. The government-run portion of the bill, which was ostensibly removed, will be added back in when the Senate and House cone together to “blend” the bills. Even if it isn’t now done now, the framework for all of the additional Obama-run new government agencies (over 140 of them) will remain in the Obama Death Plan
The Marriage Penalty remains in the Obama Death Plan. You didn’t seriously believe this was about health care—did you?
The Death Plan includes provisions for the Obama-run government to enter private homes in order to observe how parents are raising their children and to “counsel” said parents.
There is so much wrong with this plan and the House plan—think total slavery—that it cannot be fixed. So, they will pass it anyway with a “damn the people” and “damn the Republic” attitude. When this horror passes, folks, it will mark the formal end of our Republic. We will then officially enter the beginnings of the Bondage Phase of our existence. Our rulers in Washington D.C. stopped listening to us some time back. They pay no attention to us when we march and/or question them at Town Hall meetings. Instead, Obama has found a way to ensure that he and his like-minded cohorts are never again voted out of office. The Obama has announced his plan to also shove Amnesty for Illegals and Democrat votes down our throats. Obama & Co pass one set of laws for what used to be We-the-People and another set for themselves—the ruling elite.
This is it. It’s fast approaching the now or never moment. Once more for the troops who understand: “We must no longer reason or deliberate. We only want concord and steadiness. The lot is cast. If we prove victorious, we shall be a just, free and sovereign people. If we are conquered, we shall be traitors, perjured persons and rebels.” John Adams during the American Revolution in 1777.

The Red Diaper Baby’s Tantrums
There is nothing in Obama’s background to suggest he is anything but a socialist in the Marxist tradition
By Joy Tiz Tuesday, December 15, 2009
“The hammer and sickle’s stack of bones towers high above the Swastika’s.” -Jonah Goldberg
“The French called Hitler a “revanchiste”—- a Kaiser soldier of World War I who was aching to avenge that defeat. Hitler made no secret of his desire for revenge. He made it a Nazi slogan. Well, you can have ideological revanchisme as well—for instance, a Marxist determination to take revenge for America’s victory against world Communism in the Cold War.”
There is nothing in Obama’s background to suggest he is anything but a socialist in the Marxist tradition. His father was a socialist economist, his mother unabashedly sympathetic to socialist causes. His parents met in a Russian class when Russia was still the Soviet Union. His most important childhood mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, was an unapologetic communist and member of the Communist Party USA. His friends Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn are socialists who advocate the violent overthrow of the United States government. The “best education of his life” came from Saul Alinsky, yet another socialist. CPUSA was openly enthusiastic about candidate Obama.
James Lewis, in the American Thinker asks the same questions about Barack Obama’s childhood that were posited in Obamanutz:
“The big question is: why did Ann Dunham risk bringing her young child to Jakarta? She must either have been utterly naive politically, or, much more likely, she knew that she and Lolo were protected by powerful political forces.”
It does seem odd that a woman as politically astute as Ann Dunham would have been entirely unaware of the living conditions into which she was bringing her little boy.
“Indonesia’s dictator General Sukarno was overthrown in 1965, either by the Communist Party (the PKI), or by the Indonesian army and Islamic parties—and probably by all three. The PKI was the third biggest Communist Party in the world outside of the Soviet Union and Communist China. (See The Year of Living Dangerously). PKI members were killed in the resulting riots and massacres throughout 1965 and 1966, starting in the capital city of Jakarta, which is where Barry Soetoro’s family lived. Imaging living in Atlanta, GA, right after General Sherman got through marchin’ through Georgia, and not knowing anything about it?”
Barack Obama, however, does not give Suharto credit for his unbroken commitment to fight communism. Rather, he refers to Suharto’s regime as “brutally repressive” and blames the United States for supporting Suharto’s regime. Obama does not bother himself to ponder what life would have been like for the people of Indonesia had Suharto not been willing to fend off the communist coup. Has the world seen a communist regime that was kind and nurturing? Obama actually saw the democratization of Indonesia as a negative, refusing to accept that democracy can lead to prosperity. In Dreams, Obama writes, “Indonesia survived, at least on the surface, financial meltdown and democratization.”
Nothing will drive the Left into a paroxysm like the mere mention of communist influences in the United States. No matter how much evidence has piled up over the decades about subversive cabals operating in the United States to infiltrate our government at all levels, the mere suggestion that the communists were ever a threat to our national security is invariably met with wild derision. At some point, the invective McCarthyism will be spat at the offender with an indignant sense of finality as if no further discussion could be tolerated without complete destruction of the fabric of decent society.
Liberals have been embarrassing themselves for decades with this McCarthy business. Point out an unsavory association, and they squeal like stuck pigs about the scourge of McCarthyism. In the mind of the liberal, Senator McCarthy was a deranged conservative finding imaginary communists under every rock and creating the fiction of the Red Menace. Note: they have the same attitude today about radical Islam.
Following the fall of the Soviet Union in the 1990s, enormous amounts of data became available, including the Verona papers: coded messages from the KGB and other communist intelligence agencies about communist agents in the United States.
M. Stanton Evans and Ann Coulter are among the few writers speaking the truth:
From a composite of all these data, it’s evident the Soviet/Communist operation in the United States, as elsewhere, was vast, sophisticated, and effective, nowhere more so than in seeking positions of official influence. The Red networks reached into virtually every important aspect of the US government, up to very high levels, the State Department notably included. All of which was obviously congruent with the warnings of McCarthy and others who sounded the alarm about such matters in the late 1940s and early ’50s. There was in fact an immense conspiracy afoot, there were secret Communists burrowing in the woodwork, and these Communists were, in case after case, devoted agents of the Soviet Union. (Evens, M. Stanton. Blacklisted By History: The Untold Story of Senator Joe McCarthy and His Fight Against America’s Enemies. New York: Crown Publishing Group, 2007, Pg. 21).
Obama’s mother, Stanley Ann Dunham was not the Dorothy in Kansas heartland girl he fabricated during his campaign. Notwithstanding Obama’s dreamy concoctions about the mythology surrounding his father, the predominant influences on him came from his mother and grandparents who were the authors of much of his Anti-American resentment.
Ann Dunham’s parents were at ease with communism. Recall their affiliations with conspicuous communists, Paul Robeson and Frank Marshall Davis. Despite Barack Obama’s efforts to minimize his grandparents’ religious beliefs, the family did indeed attend church. The Dunhams worshiped at “The Little Red Church on the Hill;” East Shore Unitarian Church. The church’s own website boasts of well publicized debates and forums that earned it the Red appellation.
When Ann’s family moved to Hawaii in 1960, Honolulu had been shaken by the Honolulu Seven Trial of Longshoremen’s Union leaders and other Communist Party Leaders.
All of Obama’s early mentors from his mother to the loathsome Frank Marshall Davis have been far left radicals:
“Barry’s childhood and education under the guardianship of Communist Party rep Frank Marshall Davis, followed by an endless parade of far Leftist mentors from Hawaii to Harvard and Chicago, were all shaped by the identical political narrative. Every adult he ever knew told the same story. Everybody hated the same satanic enemy: American capitalism—also known as freedom and democracy—the CIA, the US military; Senator Joe McCarthy, President Eisenhower, and Richard Nixon. We now know that Nixon was overthrown by the American Left using the Watergate scandal, including the Washington Post’s Ben Bradlee, in close coordination with the FBI’s Assistant Director Mark Felt, who was Woodward and Bernstein’s Deep Throat.”
Lewis explains Obama’s need to vindicate his communist ideology:
“When kids believe that their mothers and fathers are in danger, they often imagine themselves to be the saviors—they can get a Savior Complex. (Sound familiar?) Children in abusive families often feel that way. Barry Soetoro grew up needing to rescue his side in the Cold War—the Red side.”

Obama, Congress Strive to Bankrupt America
By NWV News writer Jim Kouri
Posted 1:00 AM Eastern
December 13, 2009
© 2009 NewsWithViews.com
[NewsWithViews.com dispatched a reporter to cover a press teleconference on Friday, December 11, regarding the latest federal legislation]
Democratic Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) told reporters on Friday that the US Congress will need to condone at least $1.8 trillion in additional federal borrowing in 2010 if the government does not want to default on the dangerously high U.S. debt.
Rep. Hoyer claims that raising the U.S. debt limit would have to be in the $1.8 to $1.9 trillion range. Such an increase would permit the federal government to borrow sufficient funds in order to keep Washington, DC running through December 2010.
Democrat lawmakers are attempting to pass a stealth increase in the $12.1 trillion cap on borrowing before the end of the year and are trying to sneak through an increase large enough so that they won't have to vote again on the issue before next year's midterm elections. Their bill -- opposed by conservatives fortunate to find out about it -- would permit a total federal debt of about $14 trillion at a time when President Obama is promising to reduce the debt and deficit during his administration.
In fact, the President -- and Democrats in general -- claims that the gargantuan health care package will decrease the deficit, although conservatives have yet to see evidence of such a reduction.
"This Democrat Party-run federal government is out of control and while talking like fiscal conservatives they are heading this country into bankruptsy," claims political strategist Mike Baker.
"And why would they want to bankrupt their own nation? To rebuild it in their own Marxist-One World Government vision, that why," warns Baker.
During his Friday afternoon show, Fox News Channel's talker Glenn Beck pointed to statements made by President Obama and many of his staff and supporters who've shown their Marxist leanings usually with speeches before audiences prone towards a One World Government or a Marxist-Socialist regime.
Beck also explained that while millions of US citizens are unemployed, federal employees received pay raises in the thousands of dollars each.
To placate the party's moderate-wing, the so-called "Blue Dog" Democrats, for the unpopular debt limit, Hoyer promised to attach to the debt limit increase a "pay-as-you-go" law that will make certain new tax cuts or new government spending won't increase the deficit.
The Democrats' debt limit measure may be part of a $626 billion measure funding the Pentagon budget. Conservatives believe the reason for that is to quell complaints since most conservatives support defense and national security spending over entitlement programs that cost much more than maintaining a strong military.
"Spend and spend again policies do not work and result in only larger deficits for future generations to pay. At a time when the federal deficit has reached more than $1.4 trillion in Fiscal Year 2009 (the highest amount ever by three times) and after two months is on pace to reach even higher in 2010, it is disheartening to see the lack of immediacy of addressing the problem," states Rep. Pete Hoekstra (R-MI).
Meanwhile, the House passed a far-reaching revision of banking and financial regulations that would give government more control over Wall Street and revamp the agencies overseeing the nation's banking system. The vote was 223-202, with Democrats for the measure and Republicans opposed to it.
The legislation also calls for the regulation of some derivatives and creates a new Consumer Financial Protection Agency to regulate products such as credit cards and mortgages.This legislation has been a priority of President Barack Obama's and gives him and his minions additional power to break up big, risky companies at his discretion and help create a consumer agency to police money lenders.
While the Bush Administration and the GOP contributed to the out of control spending, it is the Obama Administration and the Democrat-controlled houses of Congress that have accelerated tax-and-spend policies.
Bank Failures Increase
On Friday, while Rep. Hoyer talked of trillions of dollars in US debt, a Florida bank went belly-up making it the 131st bank to close its doors permanently.
Republic Federal Bank was closed down by federal officers who told customers of the failed bank that they are protected. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, or FDIC, has insured bank deposits since the Great Depression. The agency currently covers accounts up to $250,000.
And the jobs picture looks dismal as well. In spite of their failure at job creation, leading leftist luminaries are again calling on the liberal majorities in Congress and President Obama to approve billions more in government spending.
When President Obama hosted a “jobs summit” where academics, union leaders, and select big business leaders made their pitch for government largess, the mainstream news media turned a deaf ear to what was discussed. Among the the stories they did report was: Teamsters leader James Hoffa's call for higher barriers to trade; President Obama insisting that all future aid to states go to preserving government jobs; no tax cuts; and caulkers for clunkers.

Is Obama Really Preparing for Civil War?
By Chuck Baldwin
December 11, 2009
NewsWithViews.com
According to an obscure report in the European Union Times (EUTimes.net), "Russian Military Analysts are reporting to Prime Minister Putin that US President Barack Obama has issued an order to his Northern Command's (USNORTHCOM) top leader, US Air Force General Gene Renuart, to 'begin immediately' increasing his military forces to 1 million troops by January 30, 2010, in what these reports warn is an expected outbreak of civil war within the United States before the end of winter.
"According to these reports, Obama has had over these past weeks 'numerous' meetings with his war council abut how best to manage the expected implosion of his Nation's banking system while at the same time attempting to keep the United States military hegemony over the World in what Russian Military Analysts state is a 'last ditch gambit' whose success is 'far from certain.'"
The EU Times article continues by saying, "To the fears of Obama over the United States erupting into civil war once the full extent of the rape and pillaging of these peoples by their banks and government becomes known to them, grim evidence now shows the likelihood of this occurring much sooner than later."
The Times story goes on to say that there are "over 220 million American people armed to the teeth and ready to explode."
The Times article concludes by saying, "Though the coming civil war in the United States is being virtually ignored by their propaganda media, the same cannot be said of Russia, where leading Russian political analyst, Professor Igor Panarin has long warned that the economic turmoil in the United States has confirmed his long-held view that the US is heading for collapse."
Many of us would be inclined to pooh-pooh such a story, but then there is this column from Bloomberg.com entitled "Arming Goldman With Pistols Against Public," written by Alice Schroeder. According to Ms Schroeder:
"'I just wrote my first reference for a gun permit,' said a friend, who told me of swearing to the good character of a Goldman Sachs Group Inc. banker who applied to the local police for a permit to buy a pistol. The banker had told this friend of mine that senior Goldman people have loaded up on firearms and are now equipped to defend themselves if there is a populist uprising against the bank."
There is no doubt that the American people have good reason to despise these international banksters epitomized by Goldman Sachs. Even one of Goldman's poster-boys, Henry Paulson, US Treasury secretary and former Goldman CEO, admitted that the American people were fed up. Schroeder quotes Paulson as saying, during testimony to Congress last summer, "[People] were unhappy with the big discrepancies in wealth, but they at least believed in the system and in some form of market-driven capitalism. But if we had a complete meltdown, it could lead to people questioning the basis of the system."
Schroeder correctly opines, "There you have it. The bailout was meant to keep the curtain drawn on the way the rich make money, not from the free market, but from the lack of one. Goldman Sachs blew its cover when the firm's revenue from trading reached a record $27 billion in the first nine months of this year, and a public that was writhing in financial agony caught on that the profits earned on taxpayer capital were going to pay employee bonuses."
Schroeder concludes her column by saying, "And if the proles [proletariat: plebs, working class, peasants] really do appear brandishing pitchforks at the doors of Park Avenue and the gates of Round Hill Road, you can be sure that the Goldman guys and their families will be holed up in their safe rooms with their firearms."
So, do Wall Street and Russian analysts know something that we don't know? Is this why George W. Bush initiated USNORTHCOM to begin with? Is this why Barack Obama is beefing up USNORTHCOM? This would help explain the reports of all those potential detention camps that have been constructed (including the abandoned military installations that have refurbished security fences, guard towers, etc., around them). Has the American people's disgust with these crooks and thieves within the federal government and Wall Street reached a boiling point?
There is no question that people are angry, and for good reason.
The fraudulent financial policies of the Federal Reserve and its lackeys in the White House and Congress have literally bankrupted the country. Real unemployment is most likely over 20%. Taxes (along with costly fees, regulations, restrictions, penalties, mandates, etc.) at every level are going through the ceiling. America's jobs have been outsourced. Barack Obama continues G.W. Bush's irresponsibility, digging America deeper and deeper into foreign entanglements, at the cost of trillions of dollars and thousands of lives. The IRS continues to harass and harangue honest citizens, squeezing them like the proverbial turnip. And now, add the insanity of a global climate treaty being hammered out in Copenhagen, and a universal health care bill being rammed through Congress, and the outlook is even gloomier.
I feel very comfortable in saying that the usurpations of power, the encroachments upon liberty, and the arrogant tax-and-spend policies emanating from Washington, D.C., and Wall Street these days are far more egregious than what George Washington and the boys were enduring in 1775-76 at the hands of the British Crown. There is no doubt in my mind that if Thomas Jefferson, Patrick Henry, and Sam Adams were alive today, they would have given cause for the Goldman Sachs banksters to retreat to their bunkers years ago!
The fact is, we do need a revolution! But not a revolution of anarchy and pitchforks. (The history of France should be ample evidence of the futility of this strategy.) We need a revolution of the individual states: to reclaim their sovereignty and fight for the liberties of their sovereigns (We the People). That is exactly what our forefathers did in '76.
America's founding document (the Declaration of Independence) declares that our states are "free and independent." And so they are. We are not "one nation" with one all-powerful central government. We are a confederation of nation-states, united in a voluntary union, with each State reserving to itself the power and authority of self-determination, and ceding to the federal government limited, specifically delineated duties and limitations--limitations that have been totally ignored to the point that, for all intents and purposes, our once-great constitutional republic has been thoroughly expunged. Therefore, it is NOW time for the states to stand up to this meddlesome, every-growing tyranny that is known as Washington, D.C., and defend the rights and liberties of their citizens!
What Dr. Ed Vieira (an attorney with 4 earned degrees from Harvard, who has successfully argued cases before the US Supreme Court) wrote a few weeks ago should serve as a template for every State governor and legislature that truly cares about liberty. See Ed's column here.
As Vieira says, the states should resurrect their militias. Many--if not all--states have the legal authority for such entities in their constitutions. In some states they are called the State Guard. Some plainly use the word "militia." Whatever they are called, they need to be activated. And all that is necessary for this to be accomplished is the order of the governor. It's that simple!
And as Vieira said, states need to adopt an alternative currency--including, and most especially, gold and silver. In other words, they need to develop their own private economies, complete with their own banks and exchange mediums. They also need to reject the multinational agribusiness and develop their own in-State agricultural and energy businesses.
I would dare say that the first State that determines to follow Vieira's sagacious counsel (and rumblings of this have already begun in states such as Alaska, Oklahoma, Texas, Montana, New Hampshire, Indiana, Tennessee, South Carolina, etc.) would have so many liberty-loving patriots flock there that its economy would explode with prosperity--resulting in a domino effect of many other states following suit--and the revolution that this country so desperately needs would indeed take place. Furthermore, such a revolution would be constitutional, lawful, moral, and, yes, in compliance with the laws of Nature and of Nature's God.
In the meantime, is Barack Obama really worried about civil war? He might be. It is my observation that Washington politicians and bureaucrats are the most paranoid people on the planet. The problem is--as with most power-hungry Machiavellians--their paranoia often translates into more oppression and less liberty for the citizenry. And if this is true, it simply means that the states need to hurry up and do what needs to be done!

The "Obama Doctrine": Eternal War For Imperfect Mankind
"For make no mistake: Evil does exist in the world."
By Rick Rozoff
Global Research, December 11, 2009
Stop NATO - 2009-12-10
President and commander-in-chief of the armed forces of the United States Barack Obama delivered his Nobel Peace Prize acceptance address in Oslo on December 10, which has immediately led to media discussion of an Obama Doctrine.
With obligatory references to Martin Luther King, Jr. and Mohandas Gandhi (the second referred to only by his surname) but to no other American presidents than Ronald Reagan, Richard Nixon and John F. Kennedy - fellow peace prize recipients Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson and Jimmy Carter weren't mentioned - the U.S. head of state spoke with the self-assurance of the leader of the world's first uncontested superpower and at times with the self-righteousness of a would-be prophet and clairvoyant. And, in the words of German philosopher Friedrich von Schlegel, a prophet looking backward.
Accompanied by visionary gaze and cadenced, oratorical solemnity, his comments included the assertion that "War, in one form or another, appeared with the first man." Unless this unsubstantiated claim was an allusion to the account in the Book of Genesis in the Hebrew Bible of Cain murdering his brother Abel, which would hardly constitute war in any intelligible meaning of the word (nor was Cain the first man according to that source), it is unclear where Obama acquired the conviction that war is coeval with and presumably an integral part of humanity.
Paleontologists generally trace the arrival of modern man, homo sapiens, back 200,000 years, yet the first authenticated written histories are barely 2,400 years old. How Obama and his speechwriters filled in the 197,600-year gap to prove that the practice of war is as old as mankind and implicitly inseparable from the human condition is a question an enterprising reporter might venture to ask at the next presidential press conference.
Perhaps delusions of omniscience is the answer. The Oslo speech is replete with references to and appropriations of the attributes of divinity. And to historical and anthropological fatalism; a deeply pessimistic concept of Providence.
Obama affirmed that "no Holy War can ever be a just war. For if you truly believe that you are carrying out divine will, then there is no need for restraint." Then shortly afterward stated "Let us reach for the world that ought to be - that spark of the divine that still stirs within each of our souls." An adversary's invocation of the divine is false, heretical, sacrilegious; Washington's is true, unerring, sufficient to justify any action, however violent and deadly. As unadulterated an illustration of secular Manicheaism as can be found in the modern world.
Toward the beginning of his speech the first standing American president in ninety years to receive the Peace Prize acknowledged that "perhaps the most profound issue surrounding my receipt of this prize is the fact that I am the Commander-in-Chief of the military of a nation in the midst of two wars."
Understandably he exerted no effort to justify one of the two wars in question, that in Iraq, but endorsed and pledged the continuation of the other, that in Afghanistan and increasingly Pakistan - while elsewhere speaking disparagingly of the European Crusades of the later Middle Ages.
Neither the Nobel Committee nor its honoree seemed inordinately if at all concerned by the unprecedented awarding of the prestigious and generous ($1.4 million) Peace Prize to a commander-in-chief in charge of two simultaneous wars far from his nation's shores and in countries whose governments and peoples never threatened it in any manner.
In language that never before was heard during a peace prize acceptance speech, Obama added "we are at war, and I'm responsible for the deployment of thousands of young Americans to battle in a distant land. Some will kill, and some will be killed."
With not a scintilla of national self-awareness, balance or irony, he also derided the fact that "modern technology allows a few small men with outsized rage to murder innocents on a horrific scale," as he orders unmanned aerial vehicles (drones) linked by space satellites to launch deadly missile attacks in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
The central themes of Obama's speech are reiterations of standing U.S. policy going back over a decade with the waging of war against Yugoslavia in early 1999 without United Nations authorization or even a nominal attempt to obtain one; that the U.S. and its Western military allies can decide individually and collectively when, to what degree, where and for what purpose to use military force anywhere in the world. And the prerogative to employ military force outside national borders is reserved exclusively for the United States, its fellow NATO members and select military clients outside the Euro-Atlantic zone such as Colombia, Ethiopia, Georgia, Israel and Saudi Arabia of late.
What is arguably unique in Obama's address is the bluntness with which it reaffirmed this doctrine of international lawlessness. Excerpts along this line, shorn of ingenuous qualifications and decorative camouflage, include:
"We must begin by acknowledging the hard truth: We will not eradicate violent conflict in our lifetimes. There will be times when nations - acting individually or in concert - will find the use of force not only necessary but morally justified."
He offered a summary of the just war argument that a White House researcher could have cribbed from Wikipedia.
"[A]s a head of state sworn to protect and defend my nation, I cannot be guided by their [Gandhi's and King's] examples alone. I face the world as it is, and cannot stand idle in the face of threats to the American people. For make no mistake: Evil does exist in the world."
"I - like any head of state - reserve the right to act unilaterally if necessary to defend my nation."
Evil, as a noun rather than an adjective, is used twice in the speech, emblematic of a quasi-theological tone alternating with coldly and even callously pragmatic pronouncements.
Indicative of the second category are comments like these:
"[T]he instruments of war do have a role to play in preserving the peace."
"A non-violent movement could not have halted Hitler's armies. Negotiations cannot convince al Qaeda's leaders to lay down their arms. To say that force may sometimes be necessary is not a call to cynicism....
"I raise this point, I begin with this point because in many countries there is a deep ambivalence about military action today, no matter what the cause. And at times, this is joined by a reflexive suspicion of America, the world's sole military superpower."
Comparing a small handful of al-Qaeda personnel to Hitler's Wehrmacht is unconscionable. Whatever else the former are, they barely have arms to lay down. But Obama does, the world's largest and most deadly conventional and nuclear arsenal.
His playing the trump card of Nazi Germany is not only an act of rhetorical recklessness, it is historically unjustified. There would have been no need to confront the Third Reich's legions if timely diplomatic actions had been taken when Hitler sent troops into the Rhineland in 1936; if Britain and France had not collaborated with Hitler's Germany and Mussolini's Italy to enforce the naval blockade of Republican Spain while German aircraft devastated Guernica and other towns and German and Italian troops poured into the country by the tens of thousands in support of Generalissimo Franco's uprising. If, finally, Britain, France, Germany and Italy had not met in Munich in 1938 to sacrifice Czechoslovakia's Sudetenland to Hitler to encourage his murderous drive to the east. The same four nations met 70 years later, last year, to reprise the Munich betrayal by engineering the secession of Kosovo from Serbia, to demonstrate how much had been learned in the interim.
As to the accusation that many nations bear an alleged "deep ambivalence about military action" and even more so "a reflexive suspicion of America, the world's sole military superpower," it bespeaks alike arrogance, sanctimony, and an absolute imperviousness to the reality of American foreign policy now and in the recent and not so recent past. According to this imperial "sole military superpower" perspective, the White House and the Pentagon can never be wrong. Not even partially, unavoidably or unintentionally.
If others find fault with anything the world's only military juggernaut does, it is a reflection of their own misguided pacifism and ingrained, pathological "anti-Americanism." Perhaps this constitutes the aforementioned "threats to the American people," as there aren't any others in Afghanistan or in the world as a whole that were convincingly identified in the speech.
What may be the most noteworthy - and disturbing - line in the address is what Obama characterised as the "recognition of history; the imperfections of man and the limits of reason." Lest this observation be construed as an example of personal or national humility, other - grandiose Americocentric - comments surrounding it leave no doubt that the inadequacies in question are only applied to others.
One would search in vain for a comparable utterance by another American head of state. For a nation that prides itself on being the first one founded on the principles of the 18th century Enlightenment and the previous century's Age of Reason, that its leader would lay stress on inherent and ineradicable human frailty and at least by implication on some truth that is apart from and superior to reason is nothing less than alarming. The door is left open to irrationalism and its correlates, that the ultimate right can be might and that there are national imperatives beyond good and evil.
And if people are by nature flawed and their reasoning correspondingly impaired, then for humanity, "Born but to die and reasoning but to err" (Alexander Pope), war may indeed be its birthright and violent conflicts will not be eradicated in its lifetime. War, which came into existence with mankind, will last as long as it does. They may both end, as Obama believes they originated, simultaneously.
How the leader of the West, both the nation and the individual, has arrived at this bleak and deterministic impasse was also mentioned in Obama's speech in reference to pivotal post-Cold War events that have defined this new century.
It is only a single step from:
"I believe that force can be justified on humanitarian grounds, as it was in the Balkans, or in other places that have been scarred by war. Inaction tears at our conscience and can lead to more costly intervention later. That's why all responsible nations must embrace the role that militaries with a clear mandate can play to keep the peace."
To:
"The belief that peace is desirable is rarely enough to achieve it. Peace requires responsibility. Peace entails sacrifice. That's why NATO continues to be indispensable."
In proclaiming these and similar sentiments, Obama made reference to his host country in alluding to the war in Afghanistan: "[W]e are joined by 42 other countries - including Norway - in an effort to defend ourselves and all nations from further attacks."
Again, threats are magnified to inflated and even universal dimensions. All nations on the planet are threatened and some of them - 43 NATO states and partners - are fending off the barbarians at the gates. It is difficult to distinguish the new Obama Doctrine from the preceding Blair and Bush ones except in regard to its intended scope.
It is a mission outside of time, space and constraints. "The United States of America has helped underwrite global security for more than six decades with the blood of our citizens and the strength of our arms....America's commitment to global security will never waver. But in a world in which threats are more diffuse, and missions more complex, America cannot act alone. America alone cannot secure the peace. This is true in Afghanistan. This is true in failed states like Somalia....And sadly, it will continue to be true in unstable regions for years to come.
"The leaders and soldiers of NATO countries, and other friends and allies, demonstrate this truth through the capacity and courage they've shown in Afghanistan."
The U.S. president adduced other nations - by name - that present threats to America and its values, its allies and the world as a whole in addition to Afghanistan and Somalia, which are Iran, Myanmar, North Korea, Sudan and Zimbabwe. All five were either on George W. Bush's post-September 11 list of state sponsors of terrorism or on Condoleezza Rice's later roster of "outposts of tyranny" or both.
Hopes that the policies of Obama's predecessor were somehow outside of the historical continuum, solely related to the aftermath of September 11, 2001, have been dashed. The rapidly escalating war in South Asia is proof enough of that lamentable fact. War is not a Biblical suspension of ethics but the foundation of national policy.
In his novel La Bête Humaine (The Human Beast) Emile Zola interwove images of a French crowd clamoring for a disastrous war with Prussia ("A Berlin!") and a locomotive heading at full steam down the track without an engineer. Obama's speech in Oslo indicates that America remains bent on rushing headlong to war even after a change of engineers. Veteran warhawks Robert Gates, James Jones, Richard Holbrooke, David Petraeus and Stanley McChrystal have stoked the furnace for a long run.

7 stories Obama doesn't want told
By: John F. Harris
November 30, 2009 05:45 AM EST
Presidential politics is about storytelling. Presented with a vivid storyline, voters naturally tend to fit every new event or piece of information into a picture that is already neatly framed in their minds.
No one understands this better than Barack Obama and his team, who won the 2008 election in part because they were better storytellers than the opposition. The pro-Obama narrative featured an almost mystically talented young idealist who stood for change in a disciplined and thoughtful way. This easily outpowered the anti-Obama narrative, featuring an opportunistic Chicago pol with dubious relationships who was more liberal than he was letting on.
A year into his presidency, however, Obama’s gift for controlling his image shows signs of faltering. As Washington returns to work from the Thanksgiving holiday, there are several anti-Obama storylines gaining momentum.
The Obama White House argues that all of these storylines are inaccurate or unfair. In some cases these anti-Obama narratives are fanned by Republicans, in some cases by reporters and commentators.
But they all are serious threats to Obama, if they gain enough currency to become the dominant frame through which people interpret the president’s actions and motives.
Here are seven storylines Obama needs to worry about:
He thinks he’s playing with Monopoly money
Economists and business leaders from across the ideological spectrum were urging the new president on last winter when he signed onto more than a trillion in stimulus spending and bank and auto bailouts during his first weeks in office. Many, though far from all, of these same people now agree that these actions helped avert an even worse financial catastrophe.
Along the way, however, it is clear Obama underestimated the political consequences that flow from the perception that he is a profligate spender. He also misjudged the anger in middle America about bailouts with weak and sporadic public explanations of why he believed they were necessary.
The flight of independents away from Democrats last summer — the trend that recently hammered Democrats in off-year elections in Virginia — coincided with what polls show was alarm among these voters about undisciplined big government and runaway spending. The likely passage of a health care reform package criticized as weak on cost-control will compound the problem.
Obama understands the political peril, and his team is signaling that he will use the 2010 State of the Union address to emphasize fiscal discipline. The political challenge, however, is an even bigger substantive challenge—since the most convincing way to project fiscal discipline would be actually to impose spending reductions that would cramp his own agenda and that of congressional Democrats.
Too much Leonard Nimoy
People used to make fun of Bill Clinton’s misty-eyed, raspy-voiced claims that, “I feel your pain.”
The reality, however, is that Clinton’s dozen years as governor before becoming president really did leave him with a vivid sense of the concrete human dimensions of policy. He did not view programs as abstractions — he viewed them in terms of actual people he knew by name.
Obama, a legislator and law professor, is fluent in describing the nuances of problems. But his intellectuality has contributed to a growing critique that decisions are detached from rock-bottom principles.
Both Maureen Dowd in The New York Times and Joel Achenbach of The Washington Post have likened him to Star Trek’s Mr. Spock.
The Spock imagery has been especially strong during the extended review Obama has undertaken of Afghanistan policy. He’ll announce the results on Tuesday. The speech’s success will be judged not only on the logic of the presentation but on whether Obama communicates in a more visceral way what progress looks like and why it is worth achieving. No soldier wants to take a bullet in the name of nuance.
That’s the Chicago Way
This is a storyline that’s likely taken root more firmly in Washington than around the country. The rap is that his West Wing is dominated by brass-knuckled pols.
It does not help that many West Wing aides seem to relish an image of themselves as shrewd, brass-knuckled political types. In a Washington Post story this month, White House deputy chief of staff Jim Messina, referring to most of Obama’s team, said, “We are all campaign hacks.”
The problem is that many voters took Obama seriously in 2008 when he talked about wanting to create a more reasoned, non-partisan style of governance in Washington. When Republicans showed scant interest in cooperating with Obama at the start, the Obama West Wing gladly reverted to campaign hack mode.
The examples of Chicago-style politics include their delight in public battles with Rush Limbaugh and Fox News and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. (There was also a semi-public campaign of leaks aimed at Greg Craig, the White House counsel who fell out of favor.) In private, the Obama team cut an early deal — to the distaste of many congressional Democrats — that gave favorable terms to the pharmaceutical lobby in exchange for their backing his health care plans.
The lesson that many Washington insiders have drawn is that Obama wants to buy off the people he can and bowl over those he can’t. If that perception spreads beyond Washington this will scuff Obama’s brand as a new style of political leader.
He’s a pushover
If you are going to be known as a fighter, you might as well reap the benefits. But some of the same insider circles that are starting to view Obama as a bully are also starting to whisper that he’s a patsy.
It seems a bit contradictory, to be sure. But it’s a perception that began when Obama several times laid down lines — then let people cross them with seeming impunity. Last summer he told Democrats they better not go home for recess until a critical health care vote but they blew him off. He told the Israeli government he wanted a freeze in settlements but no one took him seriously. Even Fox News — which his aides prominently said should not be treated like a real news organization — then got interview time for its White House correspondent.
In truth, most of these episodes do not amount to much. But this unflattering storyline would take a more serious turn if Obama is seen as unable to deliver on his stern warnings in the escalating conflict with Iran over its nuclear program.
He sees America as another pleasant country on the U.N. roll call, somewhere between Albania and Zimbabwe
That line belonged to George H.W. Bush, excoriating Democrat Michael Dukakis in 1988. But it highlights a continuing reality: In presidential politics the safe ground has always been to be an American exceptionalist.
Politicians of both parties have embraced the idea that this country — because of its power and/or the hand of Providence — should be a singular force in the world. It would be hugely unwelcome for Obama if the perception took root that he is comfortable with a relative decline in U.S. influence or position in the world.
On this score, the reviews of Obama’s recent Asia trip were harsh.
His peculiar bow to the emperor of Japan was symbolic. But his lots-of-velvet, not-much-iron approach to China had substantive implications.
On the left, the budding storyline is that Obama has retreated from human rights in the name of cynical realism. On the right, it is that he is more interested in being President of the World than President of the United States, a critique that will be heard more in December as he stops in Oslo to pick up his Nobel Prize and then in Copenhagen for an international summit on curbing greenhouse gases.
President Pelosi
No figure in Barack Obama’s Washington, including Obama, has had more success in advancing his will than the speaker of the House, despite public approval ratings that hover in the range of Dick Cheney’s. With a mix of tough party discipline and shrewd vote-counting, she passed a version of the stimulus bill largely written by congressional Democrats, passed climate legislation, and passed her chamber’s version of health care reform. She and anti-war liberals in her caucus are clearly affecting the White House’s Afghanistan calculations.
The great hazard for Obama is if Republicans or journalists conclude — as some already have — that Pelosi’s achievements are more impressive than Obama’s or come at his expense.
This conclusion seems premature, especially with the final chapter of the health care drama yet to be written.
But it is clear that Obama has allowed the speaker to become more nearly an equal — and far from a subordinate — than many of his predecessors of both parties would have thought wise.
He’s in love with the man in the mirror
No one becomes president without a fair share of what the French call amour propre. Does Obama have more than his share of self-regard?
It’s a common theme of Washington buzz that Obama is over-exposed. He gives interviews on his sports obsessions to ESPN, cracks wise with Leno and Letterman, discusses his fitness with Men’s Health, discusses his marriage in a joint interview with first lady Michelle Obama for The New York Times. A photo the other day caught him leaving the White House clutching a copy of GQ featuring himself.
White House aides say making Obama widely available is the right strategy for communicating with Americans in an era of highly fragmented media.
But, as the novelty of a new president wears off, the Obama cult of personality risks coming off as mere vanity unless it is harnessed to tangible achievements.
That is why the next couple of months — with health care and Afghanistan jostling at center stage — will likely carry a long echo. Obama’s best hope of nipping bad storylines is to replace them with good ones rooted in public perceptions of his effectiveness.

Obama: King of All Statists
No wonder America is on the fast track to socialism
By Warner Todd Huston Monday, November 30, 2009
Almost 40% of William Howard Taft’s cabinet officials were from the private sector. Ike had nearly 60% of his appointees sporting private sector experience. Reagan had about 55% and George W. Bush about 53%. Even FDR and Truman had half their cabinet officials with private sector experience.
And Obama?
Less than 10%.
That means that only about 7% of Barack Hussein Obama’s cabinet appointees ever worked in the private sector. So is it any wonder that Barack Obama has become the president responsible for an unprecedented bloating of the federal government and a take over of power on a scale never before seen?
Nick Schulz published a great graph revealing the private sector experience of the appointees of every president since 1901. (Also heard Jerry Agar talking about this over the weekend on Chicago’s WGN)
Remembering that Barack Obama himself never held a real job his whole life the fact that he surrounds himself with government hacks, placemen, and hangerson yet is expected to be the one to fix the private sector economy and, well, we can see why he is failing so miserably. He has no life experiences to draw on and neither does anyone he’s asked to advise him.
No wonder America is on the fast track to socialism.

Are These the Actions of a President Who Loves His Country?
Cap and Trade, Fort Hood, Afghanistan, 9/11 terrorists, Navy Seals
By Doug Patton Monday, November 30, 2009
I have grown weary of pretending that Barack Obama has anything but disdain for the United States of America. So let us ask the question on all of our minds: Are the actions of this president those of a man committed to what is best for his country?
With small business, the engine of our economy, on the ropes, Obama and his myrmidons in Congress are trying to ram through a health care reform bill that will, in the words of Oklahoma Sen. Tom Coburn, bring about our “fiscal ruin.” Is this the action of a president committed to doing what is best for his country?
Obama continues to push his “Cap and Trade” legislation, with all the taxes, fees, energy price increases and restrictions on freedom that inevitably accompany it, on the strength of junk science that is being discredited every day. A growing number of reputable scientists are expressing doubt that global warming even exists, and recently a hacker or a whistleblower made public thousands of insider e-mails showing that climate change advocates know the whole thing is a scam. Yet the president intends to go to the Copenhagen climate conference and pretend that none of this ever happened. Is this the action of a president committed to doing what is best for his country?
So preoccupied with his domestic agenda is this president, that an urgent request for more troops from Gen. Stanley McChrystal, his hand-picked commander in Afghanistan, has been collecting dust on his desk in the Oval Office since August. It is now December. Gen. McChrystal has said that anything less than 40,000 troops will guarantee failure, so naturally Obama will send fewer than that. Is this the action of a president committed to doing what is best for his country?
Obama was quick to jump to conclusions when Harvard Professor Henry Gates was arrested breaking into his own house. Although he admitted that he didn’t have all the facts, the president nonetheless proclaimed that the police “acted stupidly.” Yet when an Islamist fanatic in our own armed forces murdered 13 innocent people at Fort Hood, Texas, in an obvious act of terror, we were told by our president not to jump to conclusions. Is this the action of a president committed to doing what is best for his country?
The president and his attorney general, Eric Holder, have decided that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the mastermind of 9/11, along with his fellow terrorists, will get a trial in civilian court in New York City, with all the rights afforded American citizens under the U.S. Constitution. This outrageous decision even caused some in the generally uncritical media to question its wisdom, whereupon both Obama and Holder immediately poisoned the jury pool by pronouncing the defendants “guilty” and promising that they will be executed. Is this the action of a president committed to doing what is best for his country?
And finally, there is the tale of Mathew McCabe, Jonathan Keefe and Julio Hertas, three Navy SEALs who should be receiving commendations from their commander in chief, but who, sadly, will instead receive court-martials. The charge? They gave the most wanted terrorist in all of Iraq a boo-boo on his lip! That’s right. The man responsible for murdering four American contractors in March of 2004, mutilating and burning their bodies, dragging them through the streets of Fallujah and hanging what was left of them from a bridge over the Euphrates River for the world press to dutifully photograph, was finally captured by these three brave Navy SEALs. But in the course of subduing him, apparently he got slugged in the mouth. Do you care? I know I don’t. But apparently our politically correct military does, from the commander in chief on down. Obama pardoned a turkey last week, but heroes he court-martials.
For the last time, I ask you, is this the action of a president committed to doing what is best for his country?

Obama: Too much debt could fuel double-dip recession
(Reporting by Caren Bohan; Editing by John O'Callaghan)
Wed Nov 18, 2009
BEIJING, Nov 18 (Reuters) - President Barack Obama gave his sternest warning yet about the need to contain rising U.S. deficits, saying on Wednesday that if government debt were to pile up too much, it could lead to a double-dip recession.
With the U.S. unemployment rate at 10.2 percent, Obama told Fox News his administration faces a delicate balance of trying to boost the economy and spur job creation while putting the economy on a path toward long-term deficit reduction.
His administration was considering ways to accelerate economic growth, with tax measures among the options to give companies incentives to hire, Obama said in the interview with Fox conducted in Beijing during his nine-day trip to Asia.
"It is important though to recognize if we keep on adding to the debt, even in the midst of this recovery, that at some point, people could lose confidence in the U.S. economy in a way that could actually lead to a double-dip recession," he said.
Fox News, which released a transcript of the interview, showed that comment by Obama on Wednesday morning and said the full discussion would be broadcast later in the day.

Obama’s Congress Vows Forceful Takeover of American People Imminent
Bank Runs, Bank takeovers, Tarp, Cap and trade
By Sher Zieve Thursday, August 20, 2009
Since the 2006 Congressional elections—when leftist Democrats took over the majority of both the US House of Representatives and Senate—the dye was cast for the takeover of the lives of the American people. Then, the Dictator-in-Chief Barack Hussein Obama was placed into the office of the presidency. At that point, the Democrats had two of the three branches of government in their greased pockets. Obama vowed to push all of his Socio-fascist programs through, despite any and all opposition. And he and his minions are now pushing as hard and as fast as they can. The current forceful pushes are firmly against the American people.
Beginnings of Takeover—Part 1
The US “economic failure” began with the 2008 15 September $550B electronic run on US banks. By the way, this $550B disappeared—never to be heard from again. The ObamaMedia—which include every alphabet network—reported virtually nothing on this. Even at the time, this manufactured bank run seemed patently obvious as a weapon to elect Obama to the highest post in the US, if not the world. As of today, there is still no reported information as to who affected the run. Note: We already know that if a Republican or conservative group had affected it, the press would be all over the story.
Intermediate Takeover—Part 2
Due to the run on the banks—ostensibly to cause the US bank failures which materialized on paper—a new “perception” began to arise within the country. This led largely to the first $700B “stimulus” (aka Troubled Assets Relief Program or TARP) package. Under the now Democrat-run Congress, the first fake stimulus bill was signed by President Bush in November 2008. Then, after the January 2009 crowning of Obama as leader-of-the-land, Obama & Co (with no input from the American people) issued his first major $789B (which grew to over $1Trillion) “stimulus-for-me-but-not-for-thee” decree to the US citizenry. He also effectively nationalized US banks and placed them under his control. This included the reality that the American taxpayer—who has still not benefited from said stimulus—would fund the first of many major Obama follies. And, via the edict of the dictator and his paid adherents—it was done.
Beginnings of Forced Takeover—Part 3
As was to be expected from those who beg to be corrupted, our political leaders who were not content with the theft of US citizens’ money via their phony “stimulus” bills, began writing additional and growing greed and power legislation to further intimidate and take over the American people. Thus, Obama brought forth to his land his Cap ’N Tax (aka Cap and Trade) bill. Note: Although Cap and Trade was pushed as a bill to help the environment, it does nothing of the sort. Instead, it is one more way the ObamaAdmin will use to further bleed the people of their resources and cause them to be less mobile (aka the beginnings of the new US slavery of all but ObamaSupporters). Projections from some economists suggest the increase in electricity rates to the average US family could exceed $4,000/year. Shoving it down our throats against our will is forced.
End Plan for Forced Takeover—Part 4
ObamaCare—Obama and the Democrats patently non-health care bill—has been and is increasingly being protested by the American people. The House version HR 3200 contains language that demands end of life counseling by a committee assigned by the dictator and/or his staff—see page 425 of the House bill. This same bill also requires access to US citizens’ personal bank accounts and gives the government the “right” to take whatever funds it thinks citizens owe it (See page 59). It also calls for rationing of health care (page 29) and outlaws private insurance after ObamaCare is passed into law (Page 16)—no, you will NOT be able to keep your private health insurance. These are only a few of the items that are actually contained in the House ObamaCare bill. And the response We-the-People receive from our elected leaders? Some of these include “you’re evil mongers!’ (Sen. Harry Reid D-NV), “they’re carrying swastikas and symbols like that to a town meeting on healthcare” (Nancy Pelosi D-CA) and although we continue to quote chapter and verse of HR 3200 Sen. Specter (D-PA) says it is “simply not true.” In other words, our “leaders” are asking the old cliché question “are you gonna’ believe us or your lyin’ eyes?”
Hmm. Well, most of us believe what’s written in the bill. We don’t like it. Therefore, we have been opposing—often vocally as our political leaders are no longer listening to us—the heinous and patently anti-human government-run ObamaCare. And as his poll numbers also continue to plummet (rumor is that Obama has “guaranteed” his reelection if he pushes Stalinistic ObamaCare through), Sen. Majority leader Reid has threatened to change the Senate rules (reconciliation) to only require a majority of votes (51) instead of the required 60. Reid—like Pelosi before him—has now thrown down his gauntlet at the feet of the American people. And like Rep. Eric Massa (D-NY) said earlier this week “I will vote adamantly against the interests and opinions of my district if I actually think what I’m doing will be helpful,” Reid now appears to be saying My interests are the ones that are important—not those of the American people!
“Power tends to corrupt and absolute power tends to corrupt absolutely “—Lord Acton. Again, shoving anything down our throats against our will is forced.
End Game—Almost?
Finally, in one of the most Stalinistic moves yet from the ruling Democrat Party, California Democrat Henry Waxman is demanding that all of the major health insurance companies give him and his newly formed potential-purge-of-all-competing-with-the-government-private-health-insurance-companies investigating committee every possible piece of information on everything the company has done, who it has hired, what they have paid their employees, where they vacation etc. etc. etc. Suffice it to say, as We-the-People want to keep our private health insurance the government now plans to shut them all down. Is this legal? Probably not. Does it even matter if it’s legal if no one fights it? No. Are these the people you want running the country and ruling you? Do you care if you are a slave or free?
What we can do
Finally, a march on Washington D.C. against the repressive and draconian ObamaCare is planned. The march is headed up by Dick Armey’s group FreedomWorks and is scheduled for 12 September. See the below link for details. If you’re able to attend—PLEASE DO SO. It could very well mean your continuing survival.
As I’ve written before and will continue to write for as long as allowed, if we do not fight for our freedom we will surely lose it. It’s just that simple. We-the-People are the ones meant to govern this country and it’s almost past time that we take it back. After all, it belongs to us!

Obama Steps Up War Against America and We-the-People
ObamaWar against Common Sense, ObamaWar Against our Bodies, Minds and Children
By Sher Zieve Friday, August 14, 2009
Obama has made it crystal clear that he intends to control and limit the American populace. He is establishing his own pre-crimes division (watch the video-link below). Ostensibly, this is only for terrorists (the same ones to whom he recently gave US Constitutional rights?). But, with Obama’s recent tirades against the American people and his SEIU goons beating up those protesting their own imprisonment and demise via ObamaCare, I strongly doubt it.
Then, through his DHS Chief Janet Napolitano arbitrarily waving her hands against existing US law with her statement “We are not going to sit by at the Department of Homeland Security and wait for a change in the laws. We’re going to enforce the laws that are, but we can reform what we’re doing as we wait for reform in the law, and that is exactly what’s going on” he reinforces his ’we won’t follow any law if we don’t like it and it doesn’t serve my purpose’. This is called an ObamaWar tactic used in the strategy of…drip by drip…removing liberty and freedom from the American people.
ObamaWar against Common Sense
Note: Napolitano says that the ObamaAdmin won’t wait for the laws to change, but…then they will enforce the laws on the books…but they won’t really because they won’t “sit by at DHS and wait for a change in the laws.” Napolitano has now officially earned her Ph.D in Double, Triple, Quadruple ObamaTalk. Congratulations, Jan! This is called ObamaWar against common sense.
ObamaWar Against our Solvency
Obama’s first “stimulus package” stimulated nothing and no one save Obama, his now nationalized banks and his adherents. And whence did this “stimulus” money come? Answer: From the American taxpayer, of course. The lion’s share of the first ObamaStimulus (about 90%) has not even been spent and the ObamaAdmin refuses to tell us what it has done or is doing with the rest our money. And, guess what? One of our Dictator-in-Chief’s economists—Laura Tyson—says he should steal even more money from us with, yet, another stimulus package. Holy smokes!
Our tyrannical ruler is, also, pushing hard to instill his Cap ’N Tax bill that will do nothing to help the environment but, will do EVERYTHING to continue Obama’s planned bleeding of We-the-People’s money. The increase in electrical rates will be extreme and even Obama said—prior to his selection as POTUS—”under my plan of a Cap and Trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.” This is an ObamaWar tactic used to remove more money from We-the-People, in order to bring us to our forced-dependent knees.
ObamaWar Against our Bodies, Minds and Children
That takes us to ObamaCare, which will—in fact—do little to nothing to affect health care reform. Per H.R. 3200 (aka ObamaCare) it will, however (amongst hundreds if not thousands of other similar Imperial dictates) eliminate private health insurance (P 16, lines 3-26), ration health care (P 29, lines 4-16), government committee denial of health care (P 30), direct and mandatory government access to US citizen’s private bank accounts (P 59, lines 21-24), inclusion of illegal immigrants (PPS 50-51), mandatory death planning (PPS 425-430) and actor and conservative columnist Chuck Norris notes that P 838 of this terrifying-to-humans bill provides for mandatory “home visitations” from ObamaAdherents in order to tell couples with children how they must raise their children. It was the Communist Lenin who said “Give us the child for eight years and it will be a Bolshevik forever!” These are only a few examples of this draconian and Orwellian bill. This is ObamaWar waged against the elderly, your ability to store away any and all “nest eggs,” ALL of your choices and even your ability to raise your own children the way you wish.
ObamaWar Against American’s Free Speech
And now, any and all of us who oppose or even question ObamaCare are being called “Nazis” (by Obama’s Speaker of the House Democrat Pelosi, are told to SHUT UP by Dictator-in-Chief Obama and now this same Obama has sent out his SEIU Rent-A-Thugs to beat up the opposition at Town Hall meetings. This man is no US President, folks. He is a despot. He has also arranged for multiple multi-million dollar campaigns to push his patently damaging to all Americans (except he and his family and his friends, Congress and multiple Union employees who will NOT be subject to this fetid bill) message on ObamaCare in a series of television advertisements. This is ObamaWar against We-the-People on so many fronts that it’s hard to keep up with it!
Although many Congress people are no longer beholden to their constituents but only to Obama have decided to cancel their townhall meetings, please keep on attending the ones still being held. With Obama’s declared all-out war against the American people, his now-in-freefall descending approval ratings and members of Congress running from us it’s obvious that they are feeling the heat of our dissent. Let’s keep it up and give them no quarter. It’s time to take our country back from all of those—regardless of political party—who would continue to enslave us. The liberty movement is finally on the move. Keep it going and growing, folks! If we fail, all of us will be owned by the new Overseer Class in Washington D.C.

Ego the size of Mt. Rushmore, Most narcissistic, egotistical, and arrogant president to have ever occupied the White House
By John Lillpop Wednesday, August 12, 2009
Barack Obama’s falling star is NOT entirely his fault.
Yes it is true that the man has an ego the size of Mt. Rushmore. He is without question the most narcissistic, egotistical, and arrogant president to have ever occupied the White House.
It is also true that he is an unapologetic Marxist, a man who believes that he has been blessed with the only truth that matters. Only by following his way can America survive and grow, or so he thinks.
However, it was an unhealthy alliance between the mainstream media and vengeful liberals that actually allowed the Barack Obama myth to grow completely out of control.
That alliance turned an extraordinarily bright and charming man of limited achievement into a combination Messiah and Rock Star who was capable of smiting all of the thorny problems badgering weary Americans.
He would solve the economic crisis quickly and fairly, put desperate Americans back to work, end the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, bring the troops home, act to stop global warming from inflicting further harm on Mother Earth, keep people from losing their homes to foreclosure, fix the automobile crisis, and heal the wounds resulting from hundreds of years of racial divide and stress.
When needed, he could even take to the national airwaves to recite bedtime stories full of Hope and more Hope to comfort anguished Americans during difficult times.
According to the mythmakers, Barack Obama was all things to all people. A one-stop Nanny solution to all of life’s challenges and setbacks.
The only problem is that the myth was lacking in transparency and viability. Like most of the president’s policies and actions, the Obama myth was little more than wishful thinking.
Concerned about 46 million uninsured people?
Solution: Cross your fingers, close your eyes and wish for health care reform and PRESTO! you have added 46 million to the ranks of the insured AND reduced costs in the process!
Concerned about terrorism and American homeland security?
Solution: Simply delete the terms “global war on terror” and “Jihad” from the vernacular, and PRESTO! the war on terror is no more!
Concerned about the exploding national debt?
Solution: Spend another few trillion dollars on unneeded programs and PRESTO! you have bought a way off the debt- begets- debt -begets- debt treadmill and are headed to prosperity and greener grass on the other side, forever!
So it was that the Obama Myth grew and grew, sort of at the same time and pace as the Mexican Swine flu as it were.
Unlike the Mexican flu, however, the Obama myth was without substance.
As someone famous once said about Oakland, California, “There is no there there!”
With Barack Obama, there is no there there, either.
That reality has started to resonate with millions of Americans who finally realize that the promised Messiah is actually a community organizer and Robin Hood wannabe who does not grasp the laws of supply and demand.
A Robin Hood who spreads poverty rather than wealth!
Barack Obama, it turns out, is just another privileged malcontent with a chip on his shoulder, but without a clue about how to manage the complex and massive issues confronting a nation of three hundred million people.
Again, it is not entirely Obama’s fault. We allowed him to hoodwink both himself and we the people at the same time!

Obama Has Saved America!Obama's accomplishments, unemployment, jobs lost, redefining termsBy Nancy Morgan
Monday, August 10, 2009
http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/13581
Thank God! Oops, I mean, thank Obama. The economic crisis is almost over, the ‘war on terror’ is a thing of the past and, by his own words, Obama and his administration have saved America from catastrophe.
President Obama used the occasion of a 1/10 of 1% drop in the nation’s unemployment rate to claim both success and validation for his economic policies. He has valiantly brought America back from the brink of the economic chaos that was caused by his predecessor. But as is often the case with Obama, the devil is in the details. In July, 247,000 jobs were lost. Inquiring minds question how the unemployment rate could experience even a slight drop when the stats show Americans are still losing their jobs. John Lott gives us the answer:
“The reason is simple—the number of people who stopped looking for work rose dramatically. 637,000 additional people no longer consider themselves looking for work. This is by far the largest drop in the number of people who consider themselves in the labor force during the last year - almost twice the 358,000 increase in the people who left the labor force during June.”
Using Lott’s calculations, our actual unemployment rate stands at 16.3%, not the trumpeted 9.4%. Obama would have us believe this is good news. Our president would also have us believe his claim that the $1.2 trillion health care reform proposal is just the ticket to jump start the economy. (Hey, didn’’t he just say he already jump started the economy?) I digress…
Now I’m not an expert, but I question how adding unsustainable debt to a record deficit to supposedly fix a non-problem is going to deliver us from financial Armageddon. But Obama says he can add 12 million illegal aliens and app. 25 million uninsured Americans to government health care rolls and this will somehow result in cost savings.
Oh, and despite his own words to the contrary in 2007, Obama now assures us that the public option proposal most assuredly won’t put private insurers out of business. Whew. Since we all know Obama doesn’t lie, Americans will, once again, just have to accept the word of our Organizer in Chief. Hey, he’s entitled to some slack. After all, he just ended the war on terror.
‘Jihad’, ‘war on terror’ and ‘global war’ are no longer acceptable terms
That’s right. A mere six months after taking office, Obama has officially ended the war on terror. From now on, Obama has decreed that we’re only at war with Al Qaeda. All our brave warriors in Afghanistan can relax now that global jihad has been vanquished. How did Obama accomplish this amazing feat? He did it in the Democrat’s time honored way. He merely redefined the terms. ‘Jihad’, ‘war on terror’ and ‘global war’ are no longer acceptable terms. They have been banished from the polite society the liberals, oops progressives have claimed as their own exclusive province. Case closed.
When I look back at all of Obama’s accomplishments of the last six months, I feel pretty stupid for not voting for him. Had I know he had the unique ability to actually redefine reality to his own specifications, I wouldn’t have spent so much time dwelling on his criminal cohorts, his socialist buddies and his terrorist ‘acquaintances’. I would have had blind faith in him and not pointed out his utter lack of any real accomplishments, experience or character. Boy, do I feel silly. I’ve decided that I’m finally going to jump on the Obama bandwagon - right after I check out the pig that just flew right by my window.

Obama’s Anti-Human Programs almost completeFrom now on, when it comes to Obama and his minions just say NO!By Sher Zieve
Sunday, August 2, 2009
http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/13314
Although I’ve written about portions of this in the past, I think they just might bear some reinforcement. Since before the beginnings of his reign over the American people (during the fateful 2008 presidential campaign that resulted in our current Usurper and Dictator in Chief), Obama said that he would reduce the power of the Executive Branch. His exact words were:

“The biggest problems that we’re facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all. And that’s what I intend to reverse when I’m president of the United States.”
Hmm. First of all, during President Bush’s Administration Congress had him on a short leash. With Obama and his “servant legislators,” decreasing their tyrant’s power simply isn’t being challenged. Instead, their Usurper and Dictator-in-Chief is being given unprecedented power to defeat and destroy We-the-People’s Constitution. And they are affecting it with breakneck speed.
Lies and More Lies
As with most of Obama’s statements, then and now, he lied and lies to both win and gain power and control over We-the-People and our wealth--which he then “redistributes” to himself, his closest adherents and the countries of his choice. Suffice it to say, Obama has pulled out all the stops to increase and expand his power as fast as possible--before we peons can discover what he and his Party’s sycophant tools are actually doing. Note: By the way, for those who voted for Obama that means ‘before the stupid little people can figure out what I’ve done I’ll have everything they own or ever hope to own’! And, as I’ve written before, Obama is now regularly and with increased and growing intensity and purpose dismissing the Legislative branch of government in favor of making all but the most minor of decisions himself. All tyrants seize power from the other branches of their respective governments.
Note: With the exception of his “Town-Hall-show-and-publicity-stunt-only-tours“, Obama has already also thrown the American people (AKA proletariat, mob, masses or hoi polloi) under his gargantuan tyrannical bus.
ObamaPower Insatiable
In favor of growing his insatiable power (all leftists are like this--just look to the domination over the people wrought by Josef Stalin and Adolph Hitler), humans are no longer important; in fact they have become a problem. Obama’s Cap and Trade (or ObamaCon and Tax) and his current Health Crimes Bill (which actually does purport and call for thinly-disguised rationing for and euthanasia of the “elderly--those in their 60s and older--and government abortion funding for the babies who are on the other end of the spectrum) both confiscate power and money from the now US newly-poor and redistributes them to Obama and his chosen elite. Obama’s Health Crimes Bill demands a “public option.”
Public Option No Option at AllNote: Do not be fooled. This is no option. ObamaCare will destroy private health care and its plan--if passed and implemented--will allow an already bloated on unprecedented power ObamaGov to roll over and crush private insurance company programs. ObamaCare doesn’t need to make a profit. It can and will kill and destroy everything in its way--including we humans. As soon as all private healthcare plans are destroyed, ObamaCare will move to ration all health care. Only those chosen by Obama, his Czars and their committees will be allowed health care. The not so lucky others will die. It’s as simple and terrifying as that.
ObamaCare Anti-Human
ObamaCare is patently anti-human and will also destroy what is left of our country. It gives the government power over everything you do. But, what would you expect from the tyrant who appointed anti-human Science Czar John Holdren--an individual who calls for the end of traditional families in favor of government taking them over? Holdren also calls for then end to his termed “pronatalist [pro-birth] societies” in favor of allowing only two children per family--if that. Holdren and his co-authors of the radical book “Ecoscience” call for the total reversal of US policies beginning with the destruction of the family as Holdren writes: “As United States taxpayers know, income tax laws have long implicitly encouraged marriage and childbearing. Such a pronatalist bias of course is no longer appropriate. In countries that are affluent enough for the majority of citizens to pay taxes, tax laws could be adjusted to favor (instead of penalize) single people, working wives, and small families. Other tax measures might also include high marriage fees, taxes on luxury baby goods and toys, and removal of family allowances where they exist. Other possibilities include the limitation of maternal or educational benefits to two children per family.” This is the same John Holdren who said that even after a child is born it is not human until its socialized--that could be up to 2 years or even more--dependent upon the assessment of the government. No longer are liberals and leftists saying that a child is not a human being at its conception but, now an ObamaCzar is saying that a child is not human until the State says it is! We are no longer on the path to Socio-fascism. We are there. Holdren is merely one typical example of the anti-human Obama Administration. Obama’s Health Czar, Nancy-Ann DeParle, is a proponent of “partial” abortion. Obama’s Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius is pro-abortion and has been called rabidly so.
Humans Begin Standing UP
Humans (AKA WE-the-People) across our country are finally beginning to stand up against the ObamaTyranny and liberal and leftist lawmakers are beginning to complain about it; as they too conduct Town Hall meetings in their home districts. ObamaTyranny’s Cap ’N Con N’ Tax punishes us for wanting to be warm in the winter, cool in the summer and have light to see by in the dark. ObamaCare takes what’s left of our money and reduces humans to chattel--to be bought, sold, allowed to live or forced to die on the whims of a dictator and his followers. For you who voted for Obama, did you really think you were voting for your own slavery?
This is not the time to rest from our labors but, is most definitely the time to increase them. Regardless of their political party, tell your Congressional Reps and Senators “we’re mad as Hell and we’re not going to take it anymore!” This can be accomplished by calling their offices, their homes, emailing them, quickly writing and sending snail-mail letters and increasing our protests at Town Hall meetings and the streets. With those and God’s help, together we can take back our freedoms and liberties before they have been inexorably taken from us. If we do not and these programs are put into place, we’re proverbial toast--as both a country and a people.
From now on, when it comes to Obama and his minions just say NO!

The Anti-American PresidentBarack Obama, unmitigated mayhemBy Joy Tiz
Saturday, August 1, 2009
A little over six months into it and the Barack Hussein Obama presidency has been unmitigated mayhem. Obama-caused disasters befall the nation on a near daily basis that one can scarcely keep track anymore. We have endured his offensive schmoozing with the slave owners’ tour in the Arab states; punctuated by his contemptible speech in Cairo, in which the president spouted flagrant falsehoods about the charms of Islam while berating the United States for being a bit churlish about radical Muslim ideology after 9/11. As anticipated, Obama made apocryphal pledges to Muslims about the United States’ ability to constrain Israel.
While apologizing for America at every opportunity, Obama has resisted all demands that he produce acceptable documentation of his eligibility to be president. Common sense dictates that Obama’s willingness to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees rather than produce a valid birth certificate should give us pause.
Our Founders put nothing in the Constitution about vetting a future president, leaving that serious and difficult task to the people.
The most slapdash review makes it manifestly clear that Obama would have been subject to considerable scrutiny if he were required to apply for the most basic security clearance something that is not required of the United States President. Obama’s mysterious past, experiences abroad, and nihilistic friends would have mandated more than a casual review of his application.
In actuality, nobody vetted Obama. We should have known the Democratic National Committee (DNC) wouldn’t. Relying on the DNC to vet a candidate would be as derelict as putting Tim Geithner in charge of the IRS. The American people were obliged to do the vetting. We are supposed to have a non-partisan, autonomous press just for this kind of thing. Instead, the fourth estate collapsed completely into a propaganda arm for the Democrat party.
We have always been able to boast that, in America, anyone can grow up to be president. Ostensibly, that includes America-hating radicals who pose a grave threat to our national security. I’m not sure this is precisely what our Founding Fathers had in mind.
A few lawsuits demanding the production of relevant documents are gaining some traction in the courts. Though with the nation currently under a one party rule, it is not clear how the issue will ultimately be resolved.
Nowhere is the power of cultism more apparent than when we reflect on how easily the public was persuaded to hand over the keys to the White House to a complete stranger who may not even legally be an American. Obama certainly is not American in spirit.
American Presidents
The job of the United States President is to represent the interests of the people in the United States. Even terrible presidents have historically understood this. All presidents will, at times, take actions counter to our national interest. Barack Obama is the first who openly chooses to act to undermine the United States repeatedly.
Pre-Obama, Jimmy Carter has long been reviled as the worst president in American history. Carter’s bungling of the presidency was more than his manifest inadequacy. Carter brazenly supported America’s most dangerous enemies; enabling the rise of the Islamofacist thugocracy in Iran. Islamic terrorism, including 9/11, can be tracked back in a straight line back to Carter.
The Shah of Iran was a friend of the United States. Indeed, he was a flawed leader, prone to despotism but a real pussycat compared to the current Iranian thugocracy. Until former president Jimmy Carter took office, the United States and Iran maintained a stable relationship. Carter couldn’t abandon the Shah fast enough. The daffy left always gets hysterical about minor despots and glorifies the really barbaric ones. Fidel Castro is a demigod to a libtard. Carter’s refusal to support the Shah and his delusions about the Ayatollah Khomeini enabled the savage fanatical regime to grab control of Iran. Khomeini’s government slaughtered more citizens in its first few weeks than the Shah’s regime killed during its entire thirty-eight year reign. The incendiary ayatollah’s take over was the beginning of the worldwide eruption of Islamic terrorism.Bashing the Birthers
It’s expected that liberals will screech about birthers with tin foil bonnets. Birthers are disparaged by those nonpareils of lucidity, Chris Matthews and Keith Olbermann.
Some preeminent conservative sages have been chiding the birthers and declaring that Obama is a citizen. That may well be true. But mere American citizenship is not constitutionally sufficient to be President of the United States. Andy McCarthy explains the persistent questions about Obama’s allegiance to the United States:
“By contrast, the question whether Obama ever was an Indonesian citizen is still unresolved, as are such related matters as whether the foreign citizenship (if he had it) ever lapsed, and whether he ever held or used an Indonesian passport—for example, during a mysterious trip to Pakistan he took in 1981, after Zia’s coup, when advisories warned Americans against traveling there. By the way, many details about that journey, too, remain unknown. Obama strangely neglected to mention it in his 850 pages of autobiography, even though the 20-year-old’s adventure included a stay at the home of prominent Pakistani politicians.”
McCarthy also poses the altogether reasonable question: why would Obama not want his Hawaii records released to make the issue go away?
As long as gaping holes in Obama’s history are left open, there will be theories. The birth certificate is just one in a long list of documents the American people have an absolute right to demand. We know his “autobiography,” Dreams From My Father, is largely fictional. Thus, there is little reason to trust Obama’s version of his life story.
McCarthy reminds us that Obama was a citizen of Kenya by operation of law, which lapsed when he turned twenty one, a fact that would have been of interest to voters as well as Obama’s appalling 2006 conduct, when then Senator Obama openly supported the murderous Raila Odinga.
We don’t know whether Obama was ever a citizen of Indonesia, nor do we know what kind of passport he used to go to Pakistan in 1981 not a trifling matter. The chief witness in the State Department contractor passport snooping caper was murdered before the election.
Had the Fourth Estate not collapsed in ruins, Obama’s history would have been scrutinized.
It’s conceivable that the mainstream media’s precipitous pandemonium over the birther campaign emanated from the White House. The Alinskyites want to marginalize and distract the opposition.
Citizen journalists will be pertinacious in their probing the cryptic past of the most Anti- American president in United States history.
