Who is This Guy in the Oval Office? (Part 13)

*******
Obama smoking weed
*******
Disclaimer: I am including this article because it clearly illustrates the megalomaniacal character of Obama, but, personally, I believe Osama bin Laden had been dead for years and there is no evidence that the man killed by the Seals was him as "they" quickly destryed the evidence by burying his body at sea.
The Tragic Real Life Violence in Obama’s Hollywood Movie
Dishonorable Disclosures
Judi McLeod
Saturday, August 18, 2012
Aside from the clear and present danger the Obama regime places the military and their families in by ongoing intelligence leaks, the most telling part of the video Dishonorable Disclosures is how Obama invited Hollywood to the White House for a briefing days after the killing of Osama bin Laden.
*******

*******
Still shots in the film depict the lanky frame of Tom Hanks sprawled over a front row seat, with director
Steven Spielberg at the other end of the front row of the White House Movie Theatre. Today Hanks and Spielberg play pivotal roles in the reelection campaign of President Barack Hussein Obama.
The highly controversial OPSEC Dishonorable Disclosures: Why Congress must hold Obama accountable for national security breaches is going viral on the Internet.
“America’s politicians need to recognize that the right and proper role of the U.S. military is for defense and national emergencies only, not political gain,” writes the Washington Times. “While politicians in air conditioned rooms jockey for electoral capital, someone’s father, mother, brother, sister, son or daughter is wearing the uniform and is in harm’s way on behalf of those politicians.”
Dishonorable Disclosures finishes the true story that not only did Obama take full credit for the Navy SEAL raid that led to the death of Osama bin Laden in May 2011, but that the world-viewed photograph of a casually dressed Obama posing with VP Joe Biden and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton watching the raid on bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan in the White House Situation Room, was merely the forerunner for a coming Hollywood film intended to lionize Obama as bin Laden’s killer three weeks before the November 6 election.
Following the raid, Obama refused outright to release any pictures of bin Laden’s corpse—but had already granted full access to ‘the vault’—a CIA installation where some of the planning for the bin Laden raid took place to Director Kathryn Bigelow and screenwriter Mark Boal for a film, titled Zero Dark Thirty.
The only good news in the entire staged saga is that the film has been forced back from an October 12 release to a December 19 one.
Without the brilliant investigative work of Judicial Watch, whose documents were obtained through a lawsuit filed under the Freedom of Information Act, the Obama/Hollywood movie deal would never have seen the light of day.
Without the courage and savvy of the OPSEC Intelligence and Special Operations Team, the public at large would never have known about the current administration’s sellout of intelligence for sheer political gain.
According to the Daily Mail Reporter, “The CIA and Pentagon have said that there was nothing unusual about their dealings with the filmmakers”.
Speaking in Dishonorable Disclosures, retired CIA officer Fred Rustmann points out, “Days after the raid, Hollywood was invited into the White House so that they could receive a briefing on exactly how the raid took place. What kind of sources we had, what kind of methods we used all for the purpose of making a Hollywood movie.”
“What was done was stupid. But it was more than stupid because it was done with malice of forethought. It was done for a political purpose.
Bill Cowan, Lt. Col. USMC (Ret,) said, “And somewhere in this administration, perhaps at the highest levels there are people who don’t understand what the requirements are that are put on anybody else when we divulge national security information such as the identity of the organization that killed Osama bin Ladin.”
“We have now put all of those men, all of their families, everybody around them at some sort of risk. When is the payback going to come?”
Loose lips sink ships and claim the lives of the very people out on deadly missions to protect the freedom of citizens.
While Obama has come on like a modern day version of Billy the Kid bragging that he “killed Osama”, Shakeel Afridi, the Pakistan doctor whose intelligence led the Navy SEALS to bin laden rots in a Pakistani jail.
In the end Dishonorable Disclosures sends a vital message to America: There’s a Marxist activist squatting on the White House and until he’s gone the lives of our bravest are at risk.

Barry Soetoro, the Invisible Man
Wayne Allyn Root, Obama, Columbia
Doug Hagmann
Friday, August 10, 2012
Wayne Allyn Root, 2008 Libertarian Party vice presidential nominee, successful Vegas odds maker, author and speaker, recently made headlines in the style of Donald Trump by publicly stating that he believes he knows why Barry Soetoro, a/k/a Barack Hussein Obama II continues to refuse to unseal and release his college transcripts.
Root attended Columbia University and graduated in 1983, the same year as Mr. Soetoro. Root also was a political science, pre-law major in a graduating class of about 700 students, of which it is estimated that 250 or so students shared the same major.
In sum and substance, Mr. Root speculates that Barry Soetoro was accepted and attended Columbia University as a foreign exchange student, most likely as an Indonesian citizen. Mr. Root added that He paid little for either undergraduate college or Harvard Law School because of foreign aid and scholarships awarded due to his citizenship status. At this point, you might be inclined to brush off the entire matter as speculation, classify it as a distraction or otherwise downplay the significance of the issue. There are a number of critically important reasons why one must not dismiss any or all of this.
SSDD (Same stuff, different day)?
Having researched, investigated and reported on the inconsistencies in the life of Barry Soetoro as a professional investigator and investigative journalist, permit me to offer a bit of speculation of my own based on four years of history regarding this subject. I suspect that the average Obama supporter and the corporate Obama “presstitutes” will likely describe Mr. Root’s speculative dalliances as baseless white noise of partisan politics. Meanwhile, the average member of the Republican establishment will continue to shy away from making any meaningful demands of Obama about his murky past. Any true conservative elected official with the testicular fortitude to press the issue will quickly be ostracized and instructed to remain silent by the beltway eunuchs holding the political clout over the former.
Meanwhile, right-wing political talking heads of the airwaves who address this issue will do so narrowly, sticking to a tightly controlled script of how this speculation should be used defensively for the sole purpose of advancing the GOP candidate. The greater picture, if any dare to address it, will omit any discussion of the darker and more sinister aspects of the Obama narrative that could expose the depth of the Obama/Soetoro rabbit hole. The Progressive talkers will continue their Alinsky tactics of mocking and marginalization the issue, concurrent with depicting the inquisitors as racists and bigots to avoid potentially criminal or treasonous revelations.
Absent of true, uncompromised and principled Conservative leaders , talk jocks with huge audiences but constrained by a lack of integrity, the desire for the truth, or acquiescing to duress by their paymasters or the long arm of globalist watchdogs, the vast catatonic population will be forced to settle for the normal political dog-and-pony show.
The Columbia disaster
Meaning no disrespect to seven of the bravest of Americans of the Space Shuttle Columbia who perished on February 1, 2003 during reentry, full disclosure of all authentic and authenticated records of Barry Soetoro, a/k/a Barack Hussein Obama II from Columbia would almost certainly spell disaster and end the false narrative of the current occupier of the White House. It would also have far reaching criminal implications for Soetoro/Obama and those who actively conspired to perpetuate a criminal conspiracy of unprecedented magnitude.
If Wayne Allyn Root’s instinct is correct that Barry Soetoro was admitted to Columbia University as a foreign student and received subsidies on that basis, then the reason that Soetoro/Obama ordered his records sealed from public inspection is obvious. I have performed a quarter of a century worth of background investigations for large corporations, vetting executive candidates for leadership positions as an investigator in the private sector. During those years, I have never experienced a candidate refuse to release their college transcripts despite less than stellar grades, attendance or even expulsion. Furthermore, I’ve never seen a client reject a candidate on that basis alone. I have, however, seen candidates rejected (and once criminally charged) due to material misrepresentations.
Therefore, I agree with Mr. Root that the issue is much greater. I would also suggest that by releasing the records, they would expose some level of fraud, either then or now, and have disastrous consequences for Barry Soetoro and others.
I believe that What is interesting to observe is the manner that this issue is being handled by the Republican and conservative leadership.
Columbia: one spoke in the wheel of a false narrative
If a ruler hearken to lies, all his servants are wicked. (Proverbs 29:12 King James Bible)
It is important to note that like the Certificate of Live Birth (COLB) controversy that has yet to be settled, Mr. Root was not the first or only person to suspect something nefarious in the false ‘Messianic’ legend known as Barack Hussein Obama II. Reverend James Manning in particular conducted an extensive probe of Soetoro/Obama’s enrollment and activities at Columbia, and concluded that significant irregularities exist within the official narrative of his status and activities there. Other citizen journalists who have investigated the eligibility issue have also arrived at the same or similar conclusions.
The Columbia matter is but one issue in what would appear to be a continuous course of conduct of deceit, cover-ups, obfuscation and obstruction. As I have written numerous times, we still do not know the legal name of the man known as Barack Hussein Obama II, as we have not been privy to early identification papers that include but are not limited to his adoption records. To anyone who doubts the veracity of my assertion, I would ask you to furnish the authenticated documentation that verifies his legal name change from Soetoro to Obama.
So, what are we to conclude from all of this?
The entire wheel
There must come a time when politics takes a back seat to the survival of our nation. I believe we are long past that time. What will it take for people to understand that this is not merely about producing documents, but verifying allegiance to the United States of America?
It is unfortunate that political posturing has taken precedence over integrity and ethics. It is unfortunate that the conservative “constitutionalist” element of our leadership has turned a blind eye to the very document on which this country was founded. It is unfortunate that the conservatives who command large listening and viewing audiences have abdicated their responsibilities to investigate and inform, to use their power and influence to save a nation in trouble.
We’ve progressed four years with a man in the White House whose legal name we do not know, whose citizen status is still in question, and whose platform of transparency is really a wall of darkness. We’ve endured four years of wars and more wars, and accepted the designation of our own soil as a battleground. We’ve watched as the policies of the man occupying the seat in the Oval Office has set the Middle East afire and created a most dangerous situation for our closest ally in the Middle East in the process. We’ve permitted the executive and legislative branch of government to issue orders and pass legislation that tramples the rights of every American citizen, and watched as the judicial branch itself has not only turned a blind eye to lawlessness, but engaged in the very same activities from which it should protect its citizens.
Within the last four years, we’ve watched our government become infiltrated with Communists and Marxists, and Muslim terrorist sympathizers. We’ve become complacent to daily violations of our Fourth Amendment rights by the TSA, and allowed our wives, children, parents and others be fondled and groped under the false premise of security. We’ve accepted military and paramilitary maneuvers on our streets as if we are already a Banana Republic. We’ve watched as the bankers, together with our elected leaders and appointed officials, debase our currency and incrementally eradicate the middle class.
Yet, instead of demanding accountability on Soetoro/Obama’s Columbia records and all of the sealed records behind the man himself to determine allegiance, the best that conservatives in power, behind the microphone or behind the TV cameras have done is to turn what should be a national security issue into a Republican presidential strategy. Those who watched the Sean Hannity program last evening had front row seats into how the assertion by Wayne Allyn Root was molded into a political game of “I’ll show you mine if you show me yours.” Have we, as a people, reached the glass ceiling of our collective intellectual prowess and concern for the future of our nation by reducing a vital national security issue into a mere election strategy?
The elected leaders sworn to uphold the laws and protect our nation have had four years to properly address the questions regarding the bona fides of the man known as Barack Hussein Obama. The conservatives of the airwaves have had ample opportunities to step up and define ethics and integrity by their actions. Both have failed us, and failed us miserably.

Obama - Illusionist n' Chief
By Dr. Laurie Roth
August 10, 2012
NewsWithViews.com
Look in all Obama’s pockets and check the floorboards
Since Obama is a practiced illusionist, he hides and stuffs his lies everywhere, building his tyrannical rule on deception. We must learn sooner then later this election cycle that everything that comes out of Obama’s mouth and those sell out robots surrounding him is deception and lies. Our country is doomed if liberals and conservatives don’t face the Marxist music now.
Obama believes we are all stupid surfs to be positioned where he wants us. We are to be trained to obey or be destroyed. There is no middle ground anymore. The plot is thickening and the poison spikes are poking through the fabric. Soon, resisters will be destroyed or taken to re education camps for in your face instruction and discipline.
This week, private investigator and head of North East Intelligence Network, Doug Hagmann exposed info from his DHS informant. This was highlighted in Sher Zieves interview with him. The Bottom line is DHS and Obama are expecting and planning for a violent revolution. When asked about all the military activity and armed vehicles being peppered everywhere, his informant said ‘expect more.’
Those of us who are awake have noticed the endless military drills in small and large cities and the militarization of local police. Remember the recent black helicopter fly overs, terrifying the citizens of Boston in the middle of the night? Does this sound like normal military exercises and protocol? -- low and loud fly overs in major cities terrifying the unsuspecting and confused citizens at 2:00 AM???
The ‘take over’ puzzle is taking shape. Numerous martial law executive orders allowing Obama to take over everything, including relocating towns and whole groups of people elsewhere; forcing and assigning work parties; putting many in re –education camps etc…Obama has addressed all of these tyrannical agendas in just a few of his hundreds of UN Constitutional executive orders.
Other pieces of the puzzle include fly over surveillance drones now in place and assisting in arrests as we speak. Obama has also been given full authority via the NDAA Bill to turn the U.S. military on American citizens. Now, Obama can say at anytime he suspects terrorism or a threat from an American citizen that they can be arrested by our military. Those arrested would not have their Miranda rights observed and could be held indefinitely at an undisclosed location.
Something ugly is coming if we don’t boot Obama out of office in November
Unconstitutional executive orders give Obama FULL take over power of everything; NDAA Bill makes the take over and military arrests legal; Fly over drones make sure Obama can control from the air, shoot and spy on people; Foreign troops doing alleged military practice through out our country gives Obama the international cover he will need when he starts boldly taking over and declaring martial law in city after city. I predict there will be curfews, control of the food supply, control of all media, an attempt to cease all guns, complete control and manipulation of medical care and total control of fuel and energy.
Is there a time that Obama has not lied to us? I am still looking for truth or Constitutional service ANYWHERE from him. It ain’t there. The landscape in front of me looks like the Saharah desert but with tanks and military marching through blowing up dust as they move into our neighborhoods and cities.
We must protect and be willing to defend our country, Constitution and freedom with our lives. We must take the high road, do what is right and what reflects our laws and Constitution. We cannot let Obama rewrite our reality and make us obey literal betrayal! NO to any scheme, national or international to come for our guns; NO, to coming after our 1st amendment rights and freedom of speech; NO, to controlling our medical care and food supply; NO, to transforming our country into a Communist/Marxist Obama playground.

Romney Urged to Address Muslim Brotherhood Infiltration
By Cliff Kincaid
August 10, 2012
NewsWithViews.com
It is a subject that Mitt Romney and Barack Obama don’t want to talk about. But former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy on Wednesday offered a virtual indictment of top State Department official Huma Abedin as a security risk and said that Obama’s embrace of the anti-American Muslim Brotherhood constitutes a national security crisis and should be a major campaign issue.
McCarthy, who prosecuted the perpetrators of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, said it’s “vitally important” that Romney speak out publicly in support of the five members of Congress asking questions about Muslim Brotherhood influence over U.S. policy. He said Romney should “stand up and be counted.”
Romney recently said that questions about Abedin, deputy chief of staff to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and the Muslim Brotherhood, were not part of his campaign.
In addition to prosecuting terrorists, McCarthy wrote a book, The Grand Jihad, the title of which is taken from a Muslim Brotherhood document obtained by the FBI and which identifies front groups and collaborators in the U.S.
At a packed news conference with six television cameras and journalists overflowing into the hallway, Center for Security Policy president Frank Gaffney introduced McCarthy and released a ream of documents on Muslim Brotherhood infiltration of the U.S. Government.
The conference was carried by the C-SPAN television network and is available for viewing.
McCarthy said he was “baffled” by how Abedin ever got into her position, noting that, if she had truthfully filled out Standard Form 86 for federal employment and a national security clearance, this would have disclosed that she (1) worked at an institute founded by a wealthy influential Saudi “intimately involved in the financing of terrorism” and (2) the Saudi started a “charity” which has been designated as a terrorist organization that financed al-Qaeda.
McCarthy’s presentation was a lengthy examination of Abedin’s involvement with and family ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.
AIM has raised some of the same concerns, noting that, if the media were truly interested in getting to the bottom of the controversy over Abedin, they could demand access to Abedin’s Standard Form 86, “which she was supposed to fill out before getting her State Department job.”
But it’s not clear that she did fill out that form, which is 127 pages in length and should have disclosed her Muslim Brotherhood connections.
McCarthy said he was alarmed that only five members of the House—Reps. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), Trent Franks (R-Ariz.), Tom Rooney (R-Fla.), Lynn Westmoreland (R-Ga.) and Louie Gohmert (R-Texas)—have asked for inquiries into how Abedin and others got their security clearances at a time when U.S. foreign policy under Obama has shifted radically in favor of “avowed enemies of the United States.”
Material released by Gaffney’s organization included a letter signed by conservative leaders to Republican House Speaker John Boehner asking him to stand by Rep. Bachmann and the others, rather than criticizing them. Boehner has said that Bachmann’s “accusations” were “dangerous.”
“Rep. Bachmann and her colleagues accused Ms. Abedin of nothing,” the conservative leaders said. “Rather, questions about her family’s extensive and long-time affiliations with the Muslim Brotherhood were asked by Rep. Bachmann and her colleagues.”
The conservatives asked if the State Department “followed its own security clearance standards regarding Ms. Abedin, given her familial relations with people in the Muslim Brotherhood.”
Another handout listed the following examples of the Obama Administration aligning itself with the Muslim Brotherhood:
• 2009: President Obama apologizes for U.S. policy in “Muslim outreach” speech.
• In Cairo, Obama insists Brotherhood representatives be in the audience.
• 2009: U.S. co-sponsors Organization of the Islamic Cooperation (OIC) resolution at the U.N. threatening freedom of expression
• 2010: Tariq Ramadan is given U.S. visa
• 2010: Obama administration officials begin “engaging” with Brotherhood officials.
• 2011: President Obama calls for resignation of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, an opponent of the Muslim Brotherhood.
• 2011: Director of National Intelligence (DNI) James Clapper describes the Brotherhood as “largely secular” and lacking “an over-arching agenda, at least internationally.”
• 2011: The U.S. trains Muslim Brotherhood operatives about how to win elections.
• 2011: Obama demands Israel return to “1967 borders.”
• 2011: The Justice Department declines to prosecute Holy Land Foundation unindicted co-conspirators for material support for terrorism.
• 2011: The U.S. begins formal relations with the Muslim Brotherhood.
• 2012: The U.S. transfers $1.5 billion to the Egyptian government after the Islamist-dominated parliament is installed, on eve of the election of a Muslim Brotherhood president.
• 2012: Muslim Brotherhood figure Mohamed Morsi wins the Egyptian presidency and announces he will seek to impose Sharia, or Islamic, law and demands the release of the Blind Sheikh, the organizer of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. Morsi is invited to the White House.
• 2012: Terrorist Hani Noor Eldin is given a visa to pursue the Blind Sheikh’s release.
• DHS Secretary Napolitano says more such visas will be granted.
But while the Obama Administration has taken the brunt of the criticism, one of Romney’s foreign policy advisers, Robert Kagan, has been labeled a useful idiot or stooge for the Muslim Brotherhood. Kagan is a member of Romney’s foreign policy team and works at the liberal Brookings Institution.
At the time that the rule of U.S. ally Hosni Mubarak was under assault from street protests led by the Muslim Brotherhood, Kagan wrote a column for The Washington Post threatening the Egyptian government if it successfully repressed the revolutionary turmoil.
During an appearance on CNN, Kagan attacked Glenn Beck, then with Fox News, for predicting that a Muslim takeover of Egypt could lead to an expansion of Islamist power in the Middle East and elsewhere. Kagan called it “panic-mongering of the worst kind,” adding, “It’s not the first time in American history that kind of panic mongering has played well on TV or in the press…I think we need to be intelligent about how we move forward. Not be guided by panic about some global Islamic takeover. And, in fact, that kind of panic leads to the worst kind of policies.”

My Black Dad and Chick-Fil-A
By Lloyd Marcus
August 10, 2012
NewsWithViews.com
I jump on every opportunity to respectfully challenge my 84 year old black dad's loyalty to Obama. Dad has been a Christian pastor over 50 years. He lives in Maryland and I live in Florida. I called Dad to ask if he participated in Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day. He said, no he had not heard about it. Then, he added, “All I know is Chick-fil-A discriminates against gays.”
Folks, I was outraged. Struggling to keep my composure, I passionately said, “Dad, that is a lie! You have got to stop getting your news from the mainstream media!”
I went on to explain to my dad what the protest and appreciation day were really about. Dad was shocked. He does not support same-sex marriage. Dad was pretty grossed out when I told him that in retaliation homosexuals have planned a “kiss-in” at Chick-fil-A restaurants. http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-201_162-57480716/chicago-chick-fil-a-protesters-plan-kiss-in/
*******
*******
I also took the occasion to inform Dad that black pastors across America have organized to protest Obama's support of same-sex marriage. Again, Dad knew nothing about the black pastor's protest. [http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=8lxnz2qMbM8]
At my local Chick-fil-A restaurant, Mavis and I were the only blacks there in support of the protest, amongst hundreds of white Christians and Tea Party patriots.
So what is going on? Why is the truth not getting to a majority of black Americans? I fault a majority of black media outlets and the mainstream media.
For the most part, conservative talk radio is a white thing. Even black conservative radio talk show hosts have a mostly white following.
How do we get the truth to black America? Since I am writing about this problem, one might assume I have a solution. Well, I do not, and it frustrates me.
My conversation with Dad was yesterday. He called me at 9AM this morning. “Why haven't I heard about what Christians were doing in support of Chick-fil-A?” I told Dad the reason is because the mainstream media, where he gets his news, is in the pocket of the socialists/progressives who embrace same-sex marriage. The mainstream media (CNN, ABC, CBS, and NBC) gave the phenomenon minimal coverage.
Dad was surprised to learn that all who oppose same-sex marriage are branded bigots and haters by his beloved Democratic Party and the mainstream media. Dad said he does not hate or judge anyone. However, the Bible says homosexuality is wrong. He must stand on the Word of God.
Patriots, my excitement was overwhelming. For years I have been waiting for the correct moment and approach to “respectfully” tell Dad that his blind loyalty to Obama and the Democrats contradicts everything he has stood for and taught me. The moment was miraculously here. Dad was on the phone, asking questions and listening.
My mind was racing, “OK! OK! How can I give him a history lesson and Conservatism vs Liberalism 101 in as few words as possible?” I thought, “Calm down and take it slow.” We talked for an hour.
Dad did not know that not only did Obama say that he supports same-sex marriage, but he vowed to be an advocate of the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender communities. Dad told me to send him the link, which is pretty amazing, considering I have not been successful getting dad to check his email.
Dad was unaware that the Democratic Party is considering making same-sex marriage a part of its platform. http://www.nytimes.com/2012/07/31/us/politics/democrats-draft-gay-marriage-platform.html?_r=1
I explained to Dad that the mainstream media spins the truth and, in many cases, lies to support its socialist/progressive anti-Christian anti-God agenda.
For example: Dad heard from his media sources that Republicans, Christians, and Conservatives are trying to ban contraception for women. Yes, Dad was familiar with the reported “War on Women.”
I told Dad no one is trying to stop women from obtaining birth control. Contraception is cheap – available at Walmart for five bucks. I explained that under Obama Care, Christian institutions and Christians will be forced to fund contraception and abortion services against their will and their faith. Again, Dad was shocked. Dad said he does not want to fund such services.
My 84 year old dad joined the Democratic Party in his youth, believing it to be for the hard working little guy. I informed Dad that that Democratic Party no longer exists. In short, spoiled-brat old hippies run the Democratic Party today.
A majority of the Democratic Party leadership are far-left liberals who hate America and believe that man can fix every problem. God is an imaginary being clung to by ignorant, bitter, and racist middle Americans. These Democrats believe they are intellectually superior – and thus far better-qualified to manage our lives. This is why the Democratic Party seeks ever-expanding governmental controls over our behavior. Outrageously, death panels in Obama Care even give government power to decide who lives and who dies.
In response to the socialists/progressives' disbelief in God, Dad, a preacher over 50 years, said, “Your house had a builder. I did not see him. Nor do I know him. But I know he exists. Man also had a builder.”
Dad ended our conservation with “I'm going to Chick-fil-A today to spend some money.”

Obama’s insult to successful business people applies best to him
“If you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own”
Judi McLeod
Thursday, July 19, 2012
If there’s anyone who didn’t get there on his own, it is not the entrepreneur but the man who was parachuted in as the 44th president of the United States of America.
Shamefully and regrettably, the man who gave himself the name of Barack (from Barry) Obama (from Soetoro) is the hired hand longtime malcontents among the revolutionary radicals ever fomenting for revolution chose as their best chance to take down America.
Obama’s recent insult to business people working in America: “If you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own” applies, more perfectly to him than to anyone else.
With no accomplishments of note, no qualifications for the job at hand and no record to prove otherwise, those working to smother America decided Obama had the best makeup with which to con media and malcontents alike. All the haughty and taunting deeds in his self-proclaimed past were written up as an intro in an ‘autobiography’, bought up by a book publisher without question. The braggadocio of his past, including printed, below-the-belt insults to his maternal grandmother described as a “typical white person”, and the endless marijuana smoke rings he puffed as a boasted “choomer” were tossed at readers of Dreams From My Father—but the true factoids of his life conveniently kept under lock and key.
Lazy, self-centered to the core and conceited beyond belief, Obama never pulled himself up by his own bootstraps during any stage of his life. He snapped all favours and privileges put his way by other people like himself—Valerie Jarrett, protected by Chicago sewer politics as a slum landlord; unrepentant domestic terrorists like Bill Ayers who threw his former workmate a key campaign fundraiser that brought all the malcontents, including billionaire George Soros, under the Messiah Tent.
“Look, if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own…“If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen…” are probably the truest words ever uttered by Barack Hussein Obama.
Other than writing off everybody else’s success story, Obama’s words describe exactly what happened to him and the overbearing Michelle. “Somebody else” made this deadly duo happen. With no work on their part, only activist talent, not a scrap of altruism and not a thought for anyone else, they accepted those “roads and bridges” to instant success without a second look back.
“I’m always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart,” Obama told an applauding crowd in Virginia. Obama’s not smart unless it’s trained-seal smart.
“It must be because I worked harder than everybody else. Let me tell you something—there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there.”
Obama would rather play golf, shoot hoops, holiday or pontificate on university campus or in school yards to captive student audiences than really work. He knows down deep he doesn’t have to do the heavy lifting, but fortunately many other folk know it too.
It is finally with the voice of experience that Obama tells us “If you’ve been successful, you didn’t get their on your own. Nobody, more full of negative air for America, or a bigger danger to the good of people still living in freedom and liberty ever climbed so far in life.
Everyone should think of these words every time they see Obama on television; every time his picture crops up. “Barack Obama didn’t get there on his own.”
Obama got there because somebody bearing malice toward America along the line was always there to offer him help. For once you get through the astroturf hype, Obama is nothing but an on-the-take hired hand of the revolutionary radicals who want to take down America.

Sick And Tired Of Obama
Americans are going to be utterly astounded at the lengths to which Obama and his disciples will will go to retain their hold on power
J.D. Longstreet
Tuesday, July 17, 2012
I sat at the keyboard for about an hour before I began pecking out these few sentences.
Pondering a topic to comment on, or analyze, my mind just automatically skipped everything else going on in the world and went straight to the subject of “Obama.”
But here’s the thing: I am sick and tired of Obama.
*******
UK Newspapers
*******
Since the presidential campaign of 2007 and the election in 2008, it has been wall-to-wall Obama—ad nauseam!
I am not an admirer of Mr. Obama. In fact, I did not like him as a senator, and I like him even less as President of the United States. I think America made a massive, humongous, mistake in electing the man to the highest office in the land and now we are paying the price for that mistake and, what’s worse, I think we are only nearing the halfway mark of Obama’s presidency.
No one has been able to yet convince me that Obama can be beaten in the 2012 election. (That does not mean I will stop working my behind off to TRY to send him back to Chicago in January of 2013, but—in my estimation—it is a hell of a long shot.)
I’ve been writing and delivering commentaries for many decades. The most difficult aspect of creating a good commentary (for THIS scribe) has always been staying with a timely subject, one that listeners and readers will relate to and want to hear or read. The difficulty for me is my personal interest in darn near everything. Staying on a subject, in which listeners and readers are interested, is something I have to “work at.”
The thing is, as long as I stay on the subject of Obama, my readership stays high. When I depart from that topic—readership tends to dip.
Now, consider this: I’m not in this anymore for ratings. I’m writing these days because I enjoy it—no other reason. With that in mind, allow me to stress, once again, that I am sick and tired of writing about Obama.
Where did this national obsession over the man originate? How about the so-called mainstream media? According to them the guy is the “Second-Coming,” the “Messiah”—and it has been this way since the campaign back in 2007 - 2008.
What they don’t get, them and the entire leftist community in America, is that the other half of America sees the man for what he is and has always been—a con man.
Back during the campaign in 2007 my wife and I were watching some news clip or other, on TV, and my wife turned to me and said: Obama is a “user.” She meant that he had an obvious penchant for using other people to get what he wanted. She was spot on.
And it went downhill from there.
Since, I daresay, I have written dozens of articles and commentaries about the man. And, truth be told, (at the risk of repeating myself!) I like him even less now than I did when he first stepped on the stage of national politics.
Too, I have learned that it is darn near impossible NOT to talk about him and NOT to write about him. As in the words of an old Ray Stevens song say: “He’s everywhere. He’s everywhere!”
Along about—HERE—in this commentary, you will notice how I have, in spite of myself, switched topics from I am sick and tired of writing about Obama to actually writing about Obama. See what I mean!? Arrg!
It’s like an infectious disease, a contagious one at that. The omnipresent Obama permeates everything—and like some sort of cancer it manages to stave-off any and all attempts at a cure and continues to destroy everything it touches.
Look. No matter who wins the election in November, this nation, America has been forever changed by Obama. So far as I am concerned, that change has been for the worse. He has taken America deeper into socialism, which will eventually destroy America.
Already, Obama’s collectivist, socialist/Marxist philosophy, and ideology, is strangling American business and smothering individual freedom. And the worse of it is—about half of the country is willing, eager, in fact, to follow the man right off the cliff and into the oblivion of socialist enslavement.
Of all the enemies America has faced on the battlefield since its founding, NONE presented the threat to America’s freedom that Obama does today. None!
We are, in fact, living in the “end-times” for America. Obama introduced this dark and dismal period in the decline of the greatest nation ever to exist on the planet earth.
Obama’s malignant influence has global reach. The world stage is currently being set for a regional war in the Middle East, a war that could easily evolve into a nuclear war that will mar the earth and earth’s atmosphere for generations to come. (Can you see the irony in having an atmosphere polluted by irradiated dust particles by a man whose minions claim that even carbon dioxide, that gas you and I exhale, is an air pollutant?)
No. I don’t think Obama is the Antichrist. I think he is ONE of the antichrists. The scriptures tells there will be a number of them—not just one. (Read the first and second book of John in the New Testament.)
There can be no doubt Obama is thought of as the “secular Messiah” by those who consider themselves nonreligious. Trying to convince them that their worship of Obama is (itself) a religion, is a waste of time and effort.
Over the next few weeks, we Americans will observe the systematic destruction of Obama’s opposition. In fact, it has already begun. Before this election cycle is over, I expect Americans are going to be utterly astounded at the lengths to which Obama and his disciples will will go to retain their hold on power and, I think, Americans are going to be disgusted with the obvious joy taken by “The One” and his cadre of enforcers in the act of destroying their opposition. Their delight will be our disgust.
Some ministers are openly declaring the Obama Presidency is a biblical plague visited upon a sinful people! I must tell you—in all honesty—I find that difficult to refute.
When one compares the evils of modern America with the evils of the biblical cities of Sodom and Gomorrah, and considers God’s punishment rained down upon those ancient urban cesspools, one is compelled to ask—if America is NOT being punished by God—WHY not?
I understand this is a “dark” glimpse into America’s current state of self-immolation. but it is an honest appraisal of what I see as America’s terminal condition—as of today. I do not offer it for your consideration as a prediction or a prophecy. It is merely a “conclusion” based on over seven decades of experience as an observer—and a participant—in what I like to call “life.” (Oh, and I reserve the right to be WRONG!)
There can be no doubt that America is in deep and desperate trouble. Under attack from within and without, America’s breast has been bared to the enemy’s onslaught by the individual whose responsibility it is to protect her from such assaults.
But the greater, indeed, the GREATEST responsibility lies with America’s people. America’s guardian of freedom, the captain at the helm of our ship of state, is sorely lacking and MUST be replaced. The fact that there is a high possibility of failure in the attempt to replace our President in the November election must not deter us from the task.
I repeat: the task is great and so is the possibility of failure—but we have to try. America must be repaired and restored—if not for ourselves, then certainly for the generations of Americans yet unborn.

Shunning Obama from Public Conscience
Drive Obama out of your mind instead of allowing the invader to drive you out of yours
Judi McLeod
Tuesday, July 17, 2012
“Obama isn’t worth listening to” could be the wisest advice for these turbulent times.
In the litany of insults thrown almost daily at decent, hardworking people in all walks of life, Obama isn’t worth listening to let alone heeding.
The public space is saturated with ‘Obama said this’, ‘Obama said that’ stories. But how many realize that is just the way Obama wants it?
Ever since his arrival to the seat of power, Barack Hussein Obama has worked to fill every waking moment of peoples’ every day life with thoughts of him. Obama taunts and torments all segments of civil society every time he speaks. It’s the biggest part of his political strategy to invade your thinking.
You can call this ‘in-your-face’ invasion of thought Obama’s 2012 campaign for reelection.
Obama is the Darth Vader of Public Conscience. Even as you’re frustrated, worried and loathing every audacious thing about ‘The One’, his name is foremost in your mind. The more vile Obama’s deeds, the more the name Barack Obama dominates the news hold.
In his latest attack on small business the undocumented president borrowed or stole the words of ‘Fauxcahontas’ Elizabeth Warren.
Dismissing the hard work of breadwinners keeping families together; the drive and talent of job-providing entrepreneurs, at a gathering in Roanoke, Virginia, Obama took careful aim and fired his latest salvo into the midst of the business community charging success was not their own.
“There are a lot of wealthy, successful Americans who agree with me—because they want to give something back. They know they didn’t—look, if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own. You didn’t get there on your own. I’m always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart. There are a lot of smart people out there. It must be because I worked harder than everybody else. Let me tell you something—there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there. (Applause.)
“If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business—you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen. The Internet didn’t get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet.”- (White House Website)
Delusions of grandeur are part of the Obama persona.
As the stolen identities of live people, including former presidents, didn’t wash with the masses, he and his party take on the roles of characters from the make believe world.
Two days after his hurtful Roanoke volley came the ‘news’ that Dems are using Batman against Romney. (Drudge July 16, 2012).
“Well here’s a non-sensical comparison from Democrats for the Obama campaign to use. According to Paul Bedard at The Washington Examiner, the Obama campaign takes Batman’s new enemy Bane, a pumped up venom gas breathing maniac, in the movie “The Dark Knight Rises” and compares him to presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, because of the Massachusetts GOP’ers previous work with the investment firm Bain Capital, which Obama and Democrats say was a job killer. Get it—Bane and Bain?
Bedard writes:
“Bane” is the terrorist in the new movie who drives the caped crusader out of semi-retirement in the final Batman movie. Democrats, who believe they have Romney on the ropes over the president’s assault on his leadership at Bain Capital, said the comparisons are too rich to ignore.

“It has been observed that movies can reflect the national mood,” said Democratic advisor and former Clinton aide Christopher Lehane. “Whether it is spelled Bain and being put out by the Obama campaign or Bane and being out by Hollywood, the narratives are similar: a highly intelligent villain with offshore interests and a past both are seeking to cover up who had a powerful father and is set on pillaging society,” he added.
Problem for the rest of us is that Obama and his anti-American regime are a cartoon come to life.
The man, whose every claim to fame is a lie, should not be likened to Batman but Tom of the old ‘Tom & Jerry’ cartoons, ever toying with the mouse, the mouse in this Jerry’s life being life’s little people.
The sooner the world stops thinking of Obama, the closer we are to ridding history’s biggest charlatan from the public conscience.
The only time worth thinking of Obama is for as long as it takes on November 6 to place a voting mark beside the name of Mitt ‘Bane’ Romney.
Drive Obama out of your mind instead of allowing the invader to drive you out of yours. Sign off with a “That’s all folks’ at the end of his legend and end the most hideous chapter of American Marxist-manufactured history.

Obama Outsourcing Millions of Dollars in Handouts to China, Russia
By NWV News Writer Jim Kouri
July 17, 2012
© 2012 NewsWithViews.com
Despite President Barack Obama's campaign team accusing his GOP opponent, Mitt Romney, of outsourcing jobs and money, in a transaction that would have angered American taxpayers -- if the news media ever bothered to tell them -- the People's Republic of China receives millions of U.S. taxpayer dollars to help with their so-called green projects thanks to a generous President Obama, according to a political strategist who spoke with NewswithViews.com on Saturday.
The outrageous part of the story is that the U.S. is indebted to China for almost a trillion dollars, according to a Washington, D.C. watchdog group that investigates government corruption.
"The Obama Environmental Protection Agency administrator, Lisa Jackson, who launched an enormously expensive program to make America’s minority communities green, has sent millions of taxpayer dollars to environmental causes in nations overseas, including China, Russia and India," said Michael S. Baker, an attorney and political strategist.
"Obama and his news media cohorts tell Americans that Romney outsourced money overseas. At least it was his own money or his company's stockholders' money. Meanwhile Obama and his minions outsource our money on a regular basis," notes Baker.
Ranking members of a congressional energy committee call it “foreign handouts” amid record deficits, soaring unemployment and U.S. cities declaring bankruptsy. The money -- close to $30 million -- has been issued by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), which is headed by Ms. Jackson, according to Judicial Watch, a group that pursues government documents through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) or through lawsuits filed in federal court.
The cash was distributed via 65 foreign grants that don’t even include what's given to Canada and Mexico, according to a report released by the House Energy and Commerce Committee and obtained by Judicial Watch that reveals in the past the U.S. EPA over $100M in foreign grants to battle pollution ... in grants to foreign countries aimed at reducing global pollution.
Among the handouts are $1.2 million for the United Nations to promote clean fuels, $718,000 to help China comply with two initiatives and $700,000 for Thailand to recover methane gas at pig farms, according to Judicial Watch's investigation.
An additional $150,000 went to help the International Criminal Police Organization (INTERPOL) combat fraud in carbon trading and $15,000 to Indonesia’s “Breathe Easy, Jakarta” publicity campaign, the Committee report stated.
This sort of federal spending does not reflect the priorities of the American people, according to a letter that several lawmakers sent Jackson in the report’s aftermath.
Since being appointed EPA Administrator, Jackson has gone on a manic spending spree to bring
“environmental justice” to low-income and minority communities, say critics of the EPA. Under the program, dozens of left-wing groups have received millions of taxpayer dollars to help poor and impoverished people increase recycling, reduce carbon emissions through “weatherization [sic], participate in green jobs training and avoid heat stroke."
"Did anyone ever consider that you prevent heat stroke by warning people not to go out for long periods in the hot Sun? That costs millions of dollars? Now that's one training class I've got to see for myself," quipped Baker.
The EPA's budget has also surged 34% since Jackson took over to a whopping $10.3 billion, according to Judicial Watch, and that figure includes $43 million for efforts to reduce greenhouse gases that the agency claims “endanger” public health, according to Judicial Watch's investigation.
By the EPA's own statements, Administrator Jackson has pledged to focus on core issues of protecting air and water quality, preventing exposure to toxic contamination in U.S. communities, and reducing greenhouse gases. She has pledged that all of the agency's efforts will follow the best science, adhere to the rule of law, and be implemented with unparalleled transparency.
Nearly half of the EPA’s budget goes to grants that fund environmental programs, nonprofits, educational institutions and other left-leaning organizations that help promote the Obama agenda, claims the Judicial Watch report.

Obama: America Is Great Because of Government Bureaucrats, Regulations, and Taxes!
Worse of all, Obama and his Marxist cronies consider PROFIT to be evil, greedy and inhuman
John Lillpop
Monday, July 16, 2012
As President Obama’s presidential campaign fails to dispose of challenger Republican Mitt Romney, the President’s grasp on reality and decency seem in serious decline.
This is the same president who has called for a toning down of rhetoric so as to maintain a level of “civility;” an undefined term, but which probably means less critical of Obama and progressive excesses.
Scoffing at the idea of civility within his own campaign, Obama has defended campaign staffers who implied that, because of inconsistent dating of SEC documents, Mitt Romney might have committed a felony crime.
Felony? That is a pretty serious charge, Mr. President.
And it ain’t particularly civil either!
Any proof whatsoever? Is the Obama DOJ pursuing criminal action against Romney, or is this just another baseless attack based on nothing but an overwhelming desire to give Barack Obama another four years in which to destroy America?
Obama’s latest assault on American values in his contention that business entrepreneurs succeed, not because of individual drive, initiative or brilliance, but because of the government’s role, such as taxes, regulations, and interference from know-nothing bureaucrats—like himself.
Phooey!
Truth is Barack Obama is not qualified to work in private enterprise because he lacks a fundamental understanding of how money works and how businesses succeed.
ALL THAT OBAMA UNDERSTANDS IS STEALING MONEY FROM THE SUCCESSFUL IN ORDER TO ENRICH THE UNACCOMPLISHED! PERIOD.
He simply does not understand business or profit!
Remember Solyndra, that pathetic failure which cost American tax payers more than $500 million dollars?
The Solyndra fiasco was a product of Dr. Steven Chu, Secretary of the Department of Energy, a progressive thinker who has testified that he considers it a noble calling of the government to ‘increase’ the price of gasoline at the pump.
THAT is good for America?
Other examples are plentiful: The awful failures of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in the 2008 economic collapse, the financially bankrupt Medicare and Social Security programs which will cost the nation trillions in bailouts.
Consider the soon-to- be -exposed farce of ObamaCare, and it is clear that government is clueless about running businesses, and needs to get the hell out of the way of private leaders.
Barack Obama has never held a job in private business, or met a payroll, in his life.
Worse of all, Obama and his Marxist cronies consider PROFIT to be evil, greedy and inhuman.
Yet he gladly rakes in hundreds of millions from donors who get their money as a result of profit in private businesses.
Question: How in the hell did America elect this left wing malcontent to the Presidency?
John W. Lillpop is a recovering liberal. “Clean and sober” since 1992 when last he voted for a Democrat. Pray for John: He lives in the San Francisco Bay Area, where people like Nancy Pelosi are actually considered normal!.

The Pelican Brief with a twist
Supreme Court Obamacare Ruling
Doug Hagmann  
Friday, June 29, 2012
I’m about to take you on a brief but uncomfortable journey into the land of tin foil hat wearing conspiracies. I’m not going to ask you to believe it, just consider it. Think about it. Think outside the box, and as you do, consider all that has taken place over the last few decades, with particular emphasis on the last five years.
Listeners to The Hagmann & Hagmann Report and my appearances on other radio programs might recall my source within the Department of Homeland Security making vague references on at least two occasions to the fictional novel written by John Grisham titled The Pelican Brief. The book came out in 1992 and was made into a movie in 1993 starring Julia Roberts and Denzel Washington. There was no clarification and no clarity offered by my source in terms of the reference he made. I was just told to keep that book/movie in mind in the coming weeks and months.
Given the passage of the Affordable Care Act with Supreme Court Justice John Roberts as the deciding vote, the reference to The Pelican Brief might be making more sense now. Did Roberts appear comfortable in his public pronouncement with regard to “Obamacare?” Did you look into his eyes, the window of one’s soul when he made his announcement? To those with discernment, what did you see?
Remember, this is the same Supreme Court Justice who “flubbed” the swearing-in of Barack Hussein Obama, requiring a do-over behind the scenes. No video, no audio, no exposure of the “legitimate” oath given to Obama by Roberts. Does anyone outside of that room know what was really said at that private, unprecedented swearing-in ceremony? Like I said, folks, it’s full blown tin-foil hat territory in which we are now treading. But just hang in there with me for a bit longer, and maintain your ability to think outside of the box.
Communist & Islamic goals
It is the stated goal of both the communists and the Islamic terrorists to destroy the free, representative republic known as the United States of America. Perhaps more appropriate, to turn the nation into a communist country or see the flag of Islam flying over the White House and all of America, a step toward the oppression of global governance. Read the Communist goals that were read into the Congressional Record in 1963, and look how many of those objectives have already been accomplished and implemented. Is that a conspiracy theory? I contend that anyone with reasonable sensibilities would agree that the objectives and their implementation is based in fact.
With regard to Islam, look at the charter of the Muslim Brotherhood, and note that the Muslim Brotherhood has infiltrated the U.S. State Department much like the Communists in the McCarthy era. Ten years after 9/11, we now have Islamic representatives influencing and dictating security to the Department of Homeland Security. Could this be purely oversight? I don’t think so.
Note that the Communist Party USA (CPUSA) is fully backing a second term of Barack Obama, further calling it “imperative” that he is reelected. During Obama’s first term, we’ve seen some of the most overt Marxist and Communist leaning initiatives launched by Obama, with nary a peep from our elected officials on either side of the aisle. How is that possible?
Flashback to 2008: Eligibility & media threats
This writer first disclosed on this web site, with founder and editor Judi McLeod, that members of the media were being systematically threatened into silence over Barack Hussein Obama’s Constitutional eligibility to hold the office of the President. We presented redacted portions of a statement obtained from a well-known (but identity protected) talk show host substantiating this behavior.
We turned over the information to the Maricopa County Cold Case Posse,
including Sheriff Joe Arpaio and lead investigator Mike Zullo, the very information to substantiate our claims. They investigated and publicly confirmed our findings. Those who dared discuss Obama’s eligibility were threatened, harassed, and even placed under surveillance. If the issue of Obama’s eligibility is such a fringe issue embraced by only lunatics and racists, why such a response?
Today, after nearly four years of Obama occupying the White House, we have no truly legitimate verification of who this man is, who was behind his meteoric rise to power, what his legal name is, or his parental lineage. For the self-proclaimed most transparent administration in history, it has been anything but. The well-researched inconsistencies surrounding this man could fill multiple books, and they have. But such inconsistencies are beyond the scope of this article.
To those who treated the issue of eligibility as a fringe topic and a distraction, perhaps hindsight will prove that the issue had everything to do with loyalty to our Republic, just as it was initially intended by our founding fathers. Loyalty is anything but “fringe” or a distraction.
Who occupies the White House?
Given the level of deliberate disinformation, the withholding of Obama’s vital bona fides, the suspicion over the legitimacy of his birth records, his social security number, college transcripts, and so on, do you really know who this man is? We know he attended a Muslim school, and described the Islamic call to prayer as one of the most beautiful sounds he’s ever heard.
We know he also attended a church that taught Black Theology, although did his best to distance himself from both ideologies for the purpose of his campaign. In reality, however, we know less about this man than we do his dog.
Considering that, is it beyond the realm of possibility that this man was selected to advance a specific agenda?
Takeover from within
Many factors prohibit the takeover of the United States by military might. The best chance for success of capturing the United States and turning it into a Marxist, Communist, or Islamic country is from the inside. Those who believe that the plans are in place for a “New World Order,” or one world governance via the United Nations understand that certain ideological, moral and political principles must be neutered. The United States, as a sovereign nation, is an impediment to such plans, unless a “Manchurian Candidate” could be snuck in to the highest levels of government.
Meanwhile, that individual could use certain groups, unelected officials, and a series of executive orders to implement the diabolical plans of the globalists, as global governance is the dictatorship of the proletariat under the umbrella of Communism. Islam is the key to erode the Judeo-Christian heritage on which this country was founded.
Decades of systematic takeover
The systematic takeover of the U.S. did not happen overnight, and not a shot needed to be fired. The spirituality on which this country was founded has been under attack for decades. God has been removed from nearly every aspect of public life, and our once distinctive morality that separated us from other nations has been bastardized.
Map out all significant events beginning with World War I, the establishment of the Federal Reserve, the League of Nations, the United Nations, FDR, Watergate, Iran Contra, 9/11, and all other incidents of historical importance. The common threads that comprise this takeover from within all encompass government sanctioned deceit at various levels.
I contend that our country is filled with enemies of the rule of law, the U.S. Constitution,  who are working against the principles on which our once proud country stood. If you cannot see the changes, you can certainly feel them. If you cannot feel them, then it is my contention that your moral compass needs to be recalibrated.
The Republican-Democrat, right-left paradigm touted by so many television and radio mouthpieces is essentially dead. It has been replaced with an Oligarchy, a nation of powerbrokers, “kleptocrats,” and “banksters.” Most leaders of America have succumbed to greed and power.
The historic Supreme Court decision on health care
Anyone who has researched the “affordable Health Care Act” knows that it has more to do with power and control than health care. That said, today’s decision was another nail in the coffin of our country, compliments to the Supreme Court. Let’s take a brief look at what happened today, and how this vote came to be.
The bill was passed without it having even been read, and pushed through the system in a manner never before seen. People scoffed at the existence of death panels, tax funded abortions, rationed care, and so on. Even in the face of proof, buried within the bill, all have been verified to exist.
The bill takes aim at state’s rights and personal freedoms and liberties, which are cornerstones of a free America. The bill pits government against religious beliefs, although will allow exemptions for the protected ideology of Islam. The bill wages war against Judeo-Christian faith, and it does so overtly, despite the hollow denials of Obama himself.
It was Chief Justice Roberts who is labeled as the man who changed history by siding with the justices having a track record of curtailing the liberties of American citizens. It was the same man who swore in Obama in the do-over, in private. It was the same man who had the look of pain and conflict in his eyes as he announced his decision.
Could it be that Chief Justice Roberts, through threat or duress, or some other knowledge or circumstance was compelled to make this decision in the same manner we now know the 2008 bailout decision was made - by the threat of domestic economic Armageddon?
Before dismissing this as pure lunacy, I again urge you to think, analyze, research, probe, and search thoroughly and carefully the events of the last few years. Economic collapse is on the horizon, although most refuse to believe that financial Armageddon is a certainty. This, despite the unsustainable growth of our debt.
And what about all of those Executive Orders? How about the passage of a bill that defines all of the U.S. as a battleground?  How about the 450 million rounds of ammunition ordered by DHS? The bullet proof booths, the VIPER teams, the TSA, and so on. What about the most recent Executive Order, signed by Obama this week, that places the U.S. in a state of national emergency?
Most will choose to believe that this is business as usual, or perhaps not think much of it at all. Most will believe that the decision of Roberts to allow the implementation of this draconian 3,000-page bill is just the way he decided to vote. Perhaps, but perhaps there’s more to it than that.
I believe that the ultimate ramifications of this ruling are being minimized, skewed, and downplayed, even by those in the conservative talk show arena. I also believe there’s more at play here than meets the eye. I’m not asking you to believe it, but I am asking that you open your mind to it.
In the end, it’s all about control of the American people, and this is a giant leap in that direction. Think about it.

‘Obama Truth Team’ Orders GoDaddy To Shut Down Website
Information deemed “maliciously harmful to government”
Paul Joseph Watson
Wednesday, June 20, 2012
http://www.infowars.com/obama-truth-team-orders-godaddy-to-shut-down-website/
A political website that contained stinging criticism of the Obama administration and its handling of the Fast and Furious scandal was ordered to be shut down by the Obama campaign’s ‘Truth Team’, according to Douglas Hagmann, who was told by ISP his site contained information that was “maliciously harmful to individuals in the government.”
*******
*******
Hagmann, CEO of Hagmann, Inc., a serving a roster of Fortune 500 clients, was given 48 hours by GoDaddy to find a new home for his website before it was deleted.
Hagmann was told the reason for the shut down was because the website featured “morally objectionable” material. After GoDaddy refused to identify the complainant, only saying that it was not “any official government agency,” further investigation by Hagmann revealed that the order came from a group tied to Obama campaign headquarters.
Speaking with the chief investigator in the GoDaddy Abuse division, Hagmann discovered, “Ultimately it was found that the complaint originated ostensibly with a group associated with the campaign to re-elect Barack Hussein Obama.”
Turning to his contacts within government, Hagmann then spoke with another source who confirmed that the ‘Obama Truth Team’ was responsible for the shut down order.
“I’m laying this right on the doorstep of the Obama Truth Team,” said Hagmann.
The ‘Obama Truth Team’ is an outreach of the Obama 2012 re-election campaign that urges supporters to “help fight back against the attacks on President Obama and his record” by reporting supposed misrepresentations and lies. https://my.barackobama.com/page/s/report-an-attack?source=em12_20120526_sc_tt&utm_medium=email&utm_source=obama&utm_campaign=em12_20120526_sc_tt However, as ABC News reported, the ‘Truth Team’ has mischaracterized legitimate criticism as smears in an effort to chill dissent against Obama. It has also been caught fibbing on a number of other occasions.
The same methods of intimidation were also very much in force during the 2008 campaign season. Under the guise of the ‘Obama Truth Squad’, influential public figures in Missouri including St. Louis County Circuit Attorney Bob McCulloch, St. Louis City Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce, and Jefferson County Sheriff Glenn Boyer, promised to “respond quickly, forcefully, and aggressively” to “lies” about Obama.
As ABC News highlighted, this helped to create a chilling atmosphere in which “Missourians might be afraid of being prosecuted for criticizing Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill.” [see below]
This is by no means the first time political websites have been shut down on a whim with no due process after official pressure is brought to bear on ISPs.
In December 2010 Amazon responded to pressure by Sen. Joe Lieberman and the Department of Homeland Security by axing the Wikileaks website from its servers. http://tpmmuckraker.talkingpointsmemo.com/2010/12/how_lieberman_got_amazon_to_drop_wikileaks.php
GoDaddy itself is not renowned for its support for free speech. The company lost 37,000 accounts last year over its initial failure to oppose the controversial Stop Online Privacy Act (SOPA).
Despite the fact that his son was getting married on the same weekend, Hagmann was eventually able to move his website - HomelandSecurityus.com - to another server before it was deleted by GoDaddy.
“It took an incredible number of man hours and it was a tedious (and costly) process, but I have successfully moved my site out of reach,” Hagmann told us.
Hagmann noted that his story from last month about a DHS inside source warning of coming mass civil unrest, which went viral on the Internet, was one of the primary reasons behind the effort to shut down his website. http://www.infowars.com/high-level-insider-dhs-preparing-to-start-a-civil-war/
Hagmann is now warning that any independent website which forcefully dissents against the Obama administration could be targeted next.
“I respectfully ask that you spread the word – that the Obama “Truth Team” is out in full force, scouring any U.S. based web sites of any size or influence (yet small enough to be pushed around) that contains any information deemed “objectionable” to the Obama re-election campaign. Perhaps it’s already too late. Regardless, people need to wake up now and listen to what we’ve been saying. There might not be a tomorrow,” Hagmann told us in an email.

Obama Campaign ‘Truth Team’ Conflates Smears with Criticisms, Citing Disputed Study
Jake Tapper
26 May 2012
http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2012/05/obama-campaign-truth-team-conflates-smears-with-criticisms-citing-disputed-study/
An email from the Obama campaign encapsulates the problem when the political campaigns seize the language of fact checkers, muddying the waters.
In the note, sent later in the day today, Obama campaign deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter invites supporters to “report an attack” at the Truth Team report page.
“Received a robo-call or an email forward full of falsehoods?” the page asks. “Found a misleading leaflet in your mail? Tell us about it, and help fight back against the attacks on President Obama and his record.”
Cutter in her email hammers Mitt Romney for saying “Since President Obama assumed office three years ago, federal spending has accelerated at a pace without precedent in recent history,” which she refutes with a Market Watch blog saying that federal spending is rising at the slowest pace since President Eisenhower.
Here’s the problem: the Market Watch item has been refuted by several fact checkers as severely flawed, notwithstanding its citation by White House press secretary Jay Carney along with the assertion that reporters should “not buy into the BS that you hear about spending and fiscal constraint with regard to this administration. I think doing so is a sign of sloth and laziness.”
The Washington Post’s Fact Checker gave Carney three Pinocchios, writing that the “data in the article are flawed, and the analysis lacks context — context that could easily could be found in the budget documents released by the White House.”
The Associated Press came to a similar conclusion, saying that “the problem with that rosy claim is that the Wall Street bailout is part of the calculation. The bailout ballooned the 2009 budget just before Obama took office, making Obama’s 2010 results look smaller in comparison. And as almost $150 billion of the bailout was paid back during Obama’s watch, the analysis counted them as government spending cuts. It also assumes Obama had less of a role setting the budget for 2009 than he really did. … The analysis simply looks at the year-to-year topline spending number for the government but doesn’t account for distortions baked into the figures by the Wall Street bailout and government takeover of the mortgage lending giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.”
Cutter also hammers Romney on classroom size, saying, “Mitt Romney made some more ridiculous claims and assertions this week, this time on education policy. He even had the nerve to tell a group of educators that: ‘It’s not the classroom size that’s driving the success of those school systems.’”
The problem is that Obama’s education secretary, Arne Duncan, has also suggested classroom size isn’t as important as some necessarily think.
“We spent billions of dollars to reduce class size. As a parent, we all love small class size,” Duncan told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell. “But the best thing you can do is get children in front of an extraordinary teacher. So other countries have higher class sizes but extraordinary talent in those rooms.”
Leonie Haimson, the executive director of Class Size Matters, recently wrote an open letter to President Obama that appeared in the Washington Post, saying, “If you disagree with what Romney said, you should rein in your own education secretary and ask him to take back his erroneous statements on the subject.”
Cutter wrote: “Mitt Romney’s general disregard for the truth is why you all are so important to this campaign. So many Truth Team members have told me: You give us the facts to get the President’s back, and we’ll get it done.”
But voters should generally beware of campaigns claiming that they are fact checking. They have an interest in conflating nonsense — like the bizarre assertion that President Obama was born in Kenya — with legitimate criticisms. They want all attacks to be dismissed as falsehoods — and that is simply not the case.

Politically Correct Pandering During Gay Pride Month
Stonewall Riot, Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transgender Pride Month, White House
Judi McLeod  
Monday, June 25, 2012
A recent White House reception held in honor of Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transgender Pride Month, where President Barack Obama celebrated a 1969 anti-police riot that started in what the New York Times reports was an illegal Mafia-owned bar for transvestites, stirs up memories of when the politically correct era was still in its salad days.
It was a long ago Christmas time when a reader sent a letter to the forerunner to Canada Free Press,  Our Toronto,  laying out instructions about how the angel gracing that year’s Christmas tree should look so as not to offend any group or minority.
The letter writer was intentionally uproarious and reviewing his letter from memory some 15 years later loses much of the original hilarity.
The Christmas angel atop this year’s tree,  the letter writer suggested,  should be put up on an angle, as a reminder that diversity now fully recognizes that it is far more than just a straight heterosexual world.
One of the angel’s legs should be smaller than the other, showing an attempt by the tree trimmer to include all those with physical disabilities.  The angel’s dress should never be white as that would be blatantly racist.
But the funniest instruction was that the angel of no specific gender should wear a kilt, in case the Scots should take their absence on Christmas tree angels in the rest of the world, as a supreme insult.
Obama’s politically correct pandering hits all time highs each year during Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transgender Pride Month.
“Now, each June since I took office, we have gathered to pay tribute to the generations of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans who devoted their lives to our most basic of ideals—equality not just for some, but for all,” Obama said.  (CNSNews.com).
“Together we’ve marked major milestones like the 40th anniversary of the Stonewall riots, when a group of brave citizens held their ground against brutal discrimination,” said Obama.  “Together we’ve honored courageous pioneers, who, decades ago, came out and spoke out; who challenged unjust laws and destructive prejudices.  Together, we’ve stood resolute; unwavering in our commitment to advance this movement and to build a more perfect union.”
The “Stonewall Riot” that president Obama referred to started when police raided a New York City saloon called the “Stonewall Inn’ that catered to transvestites.  In a 2010 obituary for Seymour Pine, the police inspector who led the raid, the New York Times reported the basic facts of the incident, describing the inn as “an illegal club frequented by cross-dressers.
“The club, on Christopher Street near Seventh Avenue South, was owned by members of the Mafia,” the Times reported.  “Inspector Pine later said he conducted the raid on orders from superiors.
“About 200 people were inside,” said the Times.  “When the officers ordered them to line up and show identification, some refused.  Several transvestites refused to submit to anatomical inspections.  World of the raid filtered into the street, and soon hundreds of protesters gathered outside, shouting ‘gay power’ and calling the police ‘pigs’.”
Obama can dredge up an event from 43 years ago, describing it in such passionate l terms, but ignore the elderly and children being groped by TSA agents at airports.
Centering out transgenders does not guarantee their acceptance into society.
We should be celebrating our differences rather than allowing pandering governments to mandate them.
How I wish people like the beautiful black woman who once left left -leaning Toronto Board of Education trustees with their mouths agape were today’s warriors on the politically correct battle field.
The woman came before the Toronto Board of Education to fight for “the best public education possible” for her elementary school aged son, Johnny, when trustees were trying to force their controversial Heritage Language program on the public school system.
During Heritage Language, children like Johnny would be pulled out of home room classes to attend African language and culture studies.
His mother, who said she earned her living as a char lady,  told the trustees, “Me and other parents like me do not want you to treat our children any different than all the other children who attend school.  The point is we want our children to be taught the same; to grow up to be the best they can be.”
Johnny’s Mother was right on target and the silence from normally garrulous Socialist board trustees after her presentation was the only one I’d ever witnessed in all the years I’d covered the Education Beat for the Toronto Sun.
Meanwhile, here’s betting that not all transvestites are waiting to be rescued by a politician cashing in on their just being different.

The Cult of Obama
The Obama campaign never sold Obama; it sold the idea of Obama
Daniel Greenfield  
Monday, June 25, 2012
The Corporate Cult evolved in the United States as a hybrid of the sales force of the corporation and the religious devotion of the cult. This type of entity might be a cult like Scientology, which used the aggressive and organized sales tactics and marketing campaigns of a corporation, or it could be a corporation like Apple, whose employees earn little, but feel a sense of satisfaction at being part of a meaningful entity.
The Obama Campaign is a fantastic marketing machine. It is constantly discovering new ways to sell things to people. But the problem is that it has no actual product. A company that goes corporate cult uses some of the tactics of a cult to inflate the value of its product. But a cult has no product except the sense of satisfaction that comes from being in the cult. The only things it sells are images of its leader, emblazoned everywhere, his books, speeches and photos, and these are used as tokens of membership in the cult.

The only things it sells are images of its leader, emblazoned everywhere, his books, speeches and photos, and these are used as tokens of membership in the cult.
In retrospect, the Cult of Obama had much in common with other cults
In retrospect, the Cult of Obama had much in common with other cults. Like them it recruited young volunteers on campus. Its recruitment materials leaned heavily on books by its beloved leader. It promised them that a new age was coming and that they could be a big part of bringing it about. And its vector of introduction to older viewers was through a woman who has been accused of promoting cults on her popular television show.
Strip away the politics, forget the push and pull of the election issues, wipe the polar identities of the parties from your minds and take a fresh look at the 2008 campaign. Then compare the pitch to any of the major cults in the seventies and eighties. There really isn’t all that much of a difference. They’re all “Transformative” movements that promise to solve society’s problems by using new insights to create a wave of change that begins with “us”.
Even the political angle isn’t new. Jim Jones and his murderous child-abusing cult started out as community organizers for California Democrats, and leading politicians, including saintly hero Harvey Milk, covered for his crimes until the whole thing got too big and Jones got too crazy. Long before Obama, Lyndon LaRouche went the campus cult route and if you are morbidly curious, you can find videos where “LaRouche Youth”, who have broken ties with their families and friends, shout insane slogans while their glazed eyes stare fixedly into the camera.
The pitch is “Transformative” but it isn’t the world that is being transformed, only the participants
The pitch is “Transformative” but it isn’t the world that is being transformed, only the participants, and the method of transformation is constant labor and omnipresent awareness of the program. That is where the Cult of Obama’s retention efforts fell through. Successful cults maintain control over a core cadre and use them to expand their base, but projects like Americorps did not come close to meeting those goals.
The corporate part of the Corporate Cult deals with adversity by redoubling the sales pitch. If sales fall, it finds more things to sell. The Obama Campaign is insanely intensifying its sales efforts, without understanding that its sales are falling because the value of the brand is failing. Many cult survivors dropped out during a similar phase when the cult supervisors pressured them to increase sales and recruitment, even as the cult was no longer relevant. When the history of this campaign is written, we will likely discover that the people on the inside were being just as ruthlessly pressured to achieve impossible goals to compensate for the failings of their candidate.
When businesses hysterically deluge you with offerings for their product, it’s a sign of fear. Obama’s campaign rolling out invitations to dinner with him and suggestions that you use your wedding to raise money for him stinks of that same fear. It’s ingenious from a marketing standpoint, but from that same standpoint, it’s also a bad tactic. The last thing that a company or a campaign wants to do is wear people out. But that is exactly what Obama is accomplishing by burning through his base for a short-term cash grab, when what he really needs is to have those people committed to him at the end.
Obama’s people are clever, but not good, which is a common combination at dot com companies that go under when the trend passes them by. The Obama trend has long since gone and no one is all that excited about another four years. Like Steve Jobs debuting one more feature, the campaign has doled out gay marriage and the DREAM Act to gets its base excited about another four years. But it still isn’t excited. These are features that it expected years ago and it’s not in the mood to work itself up into a frenzy over finally getting them.
This is the part where the marketing consultants spend six months on a study and inform the company that
their brand is done and has to either be retired or salvaged through a high-profile campaign that will reinvent it as cutting edge. But when your brand is a man, how do you reinvent him? And when your brand is “Transformative Politics” and even your staunchest supporters don’t feel like anything has been transformed, how do you move the product?
Cults shift the burden of failure from the guru and the program to the participants. It isn’t the man or the idea that failed, but the people.
There are the outside enemies who make enlightenment impossible. “How very much I’ve tried my best to give you a good life. But in spite of all of my trying a handful of our people, with their lies, have made our lives impossible,” Jim Jones said at Jonestown. That is the epilogue of the Obama campaign. The one being scripted for him by the media.
Like Jim Jones, Obama has done his best to give us a good life, but the Republicans, FOX News, the Supreme Court, the Koch Brothers and powerful interests have sabotaged his efforts with their lies. And yet in the end it’s not the enemies who bear the final burden, but the people who weren’t good enough.
Cults demand more and more from their followers to impose upon them an unreasonable and unshakeable burden of guilt
Cults demand more and more from their followers to impose upon them an unreasonable and unshakeable burden of guilt. The cult appeals to those who want to make more of their lives, and it destroys their will by making them feel like failures. The Obama campaign’s endless demands of its followers have that tenor as well. Behind all the flowery words, the burden of responsibility is being shifted from his people to his supporters.
The cult frames everything in terms of commitment. What begins as a commitment to personal and global transformation becomes a commitment to the demands of the cult. The commitment is meant to be mutual, and it is occasionally even framed in terms of a marriage.
“In all our years of marriage, he’s always looked out for me. Now, I see that same commitment every day to you and to this country,” Michelle Obama’s campaign mailing says. “The only way we’ll win this election is if we can rely on one another like that.”
The commitments, of course, aren’t mutual. They can’t be. The disparity in power is too great. The cult exists for the sake of the leader, but the leader does not exist for the sake of the cult. Once the followers realize this, the illusion of mutual commitment breaks down. And to keep them from realizing it, the cult strives to make them feel that they have not lived up to their commitment.
The cult intrudes into personal and marital relationships because it cannot allow any commitment to dwarf the greater commitment. That is why cults will arrange marriages and control whom members may marry. It may command divorces or just solicit donations to its cause at a wedding. It acts as if it knows no boundaries, but, in truth, it is setting its own boundaries. It is claiming the intimate territory of personal relationships as its own.
And yet all this only works for as long as the transformative illusion endures. When the sense that the commitment to the cult is not transformative, that the principles of its program cannot make a better world, then its power fades away and dies. The cult may amp up its marketing, but the only product that it ever truly had was intangible.
The Obama campaign never sold Obama; it sold the idea of Obama
The Obama campaign never sold Obama; it sold the idea of Obama. The illusion that was more than the sum of his false biography, his chin up speeches full of momentous pauses and stolen poetry, or the typography of his posters. It was the sense of imminence, the perception of a transformative figure who could change the country and the world. That magnetic tug wasn’t Obama, it was the confused mess of desires, fears, hopes, dreams and wishes that the people were encouraged to project onto him.
The essential product of every cult is the promise of global transformation through personal transformation. Years later, few people can say that their lives are any better, and while many are still willing to echo Jim Jones and blame that on outside enemies, there is no real faith that the program can work.
Whether or not Obama wins again, his cult has failed. It failed because it was not able to deliver on its promises of transformation, nor was it able to place the blame on its followers. Most of those who voted for Obama will drink the Kool-Aid one more time, but there will be little enthusiasm in the drinking of it.
