More Media Bias (LIES): NY Times Spiked Obama Donor Story

Posted on March 31, 2009. Filed under: Media Bias, Obama, Obama Corruption, Politics |

Well, I guess I’ll keep reporting this stuff even though its an every day occurrence. We all KNOW that the mainstream media is in Obama’s pocket, but when will we get fed up enough that we will do something about it?? Let’s call it what it really is – they are liars and they are no longer objective newsmen. They are actively working FOR Obama and the liberals and we cannot count on getting accurate, truthful news from them any longer. I’m sick of it!!!

‘New York Times’ Spiked Obama Donor Story

Congressional Testimony: ‘Game-Changer’ Article Would Have Connected Campaign With ACORN
BY MICHAEL P. TREMOGLIE, THE BULLETIN
MONDAY, MARCH 30, 2009

A lawyer involved with legal action against Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) told a House Judiciary subcommittee on March 19 The New York Times had killed a story in October that would have shown a close link between ACORN, Project Vote and the Obama campaign because it would have been a “a game changer.”

Heather Heidelbaugh, who represented the Pennsylvania Republican State Committee in the lawsuit against the group, recounted for the committee what she had been told by a former ACORN worker who had worked in the group’s Washington, D.C. office. The former worker, Anita Moncrief, told Ms. Heidelbaugh last October, during the state committee’s litigation against ACORN, she had been a “confidential informant for several months to The New York Times reporter, Stephanie Strom.”

Ms. Moncrief had been providing Ms. Strom with information about ACORN’s election activities. Ms. Strom had written several stories based on information Ms. Moncrief had given her.

During her testimony, Ms. Heidelbaugh said Ms. Moncrief had told her The New York Times articles stopped when she revealed that the Obama presidential campaign had sent its maxed-out donor list to ACORN’s Washington, D.C. office.

Ms. Moncrief told Ms. Heidelbaugh the campaign had asked her and her boss to “reach out to the maxed-out donors and solicit donations from them for Get Out the Vote efforts to be run by ACORN.”

Ms. Heidelbaugh then told the congressional panel:

“Upon learning this information and receiving the list of donors from the Obama campaign, Ms. Strom reported to Ms. Moncrief that her editors at The New York Times wanted her to kill the story because, and I quote, “it was a game changer.”‘

Ms. Moncrief made her first overture to Ms. Heidelbaugh after The New York Times allegedly spiked the story – on Oct. 21, 2008. Last fall, she testified under oath about what she had learned about ACORN from her years in its Washington, D.C. office. Although she was present at the congressional hearing, she did not testify.

U.S. Rep. James Sensenbrenner, R-Wisc., the ranking Republican on the committee, said the interactions between the Obama campaign and ACORN, as described by Ms. Moncrief, and attested to before the committee by Ms. Heidelbaugh, could possibly violate federal election law, and “ACORN has a pattern of getting in trouble for violating federal election laws.”

He also voiced criticism of The New York Times.

“If true, The New York Times is showing once again that it is a not an impartial observer of the political scene,” he said. “If they want to be a mouthpiece for the Democratic Party, they should put Barack Obama approves of this in their newspaper.”

Academicians and journalism experts expressed similar criticism of the Times.

“The New York Times keeps going over the line in every single campaign and last year was the worst, easily,” said Mal Kline of the American Journalism Center. “They would ignore real questions worth examining about Obama, the questions about Bill Ayers or about how he got his house. Then on the other side they would try to manufacture scandals.”

Mr. Kline mentioned Gov. Sarah Palin was cleared by investigators of improperly firing an Alaska State Trooper, but went unnoticed by The Times.

“How many stories about this were in The New York Times,” he asked.

“If this is true, it would not surprise me at all. The New York Times is a liberal newspaper. It is dedicated to furthering the Democratic Party,” said Dr. Paul Kengor, professor of Political Science at Grove City College. “People think The New York Times is an objective news source and it is not. It would not surprise me that if they had a news story that would have swayed the election into McCain’s favor they would not have used it.”

ACORN has issued statements claiming that Ms. Moncrief is merely a disgruntled former worker.

“None of this wild and varied list of charges has any credibility and we’re not going to spend our time on it,” said Kevin Whelan, ACORN deputy political director in a statement issued last week.

Stephanie Strom was contacted for a comment, and The New York Times’ Senior Vice President for Corporate Communications Catherine Mathis replied with an e-mail in her place.

Ms. Mathis wrote, “In response to your questions to our reporter, Stephanie Strom, we do not discuss our newsgathering and won’t comment except to say that political considerations played no role in our decisions about how to cover this story or any other story about President Obama.”

Barack Obama’s Dislike for the United States

Posted on March 31, 2009. Filed under: Obama |

His dislike for the US is obvious and the article below does a fairly good job of pointing some of these things out. When will the libs realize this??

Barack Obama’s Dislike for the United States
By Ron Marlar
March 31, 2009

Cowardice asks the question “Is it safe?” Expediency asks the question “Is it politic?” Vanity asks the question “Is it popular?” But conscience asks the question “Is it right?” And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but one must take it because one’s conscience tells one that it is right. – Martin Luther King, Jr.

Barack Hussein and Michelle Obama do not like the United States of America as it has been and is so far at present. They make their dislike of the U.S. clear in their past and present words and actions. Those that they have associated with as their closest friends and co-workers and those that they have brought into his Administration share their dislike going to hatred of the U.S., even to terrorist acts against the U.S.

This is odd because all of them have lived and continue to live lives of privileged elites enjoying the best the U.S. has had and still has to offer.

Obama ran on the campaign mantra “hope for change.” The change was unspecified and remains in some instances unknown or at least not known clearly.

Obama makes some of his hope for change evident in Dreams From My Father, 2004, and The Audacity of Hope, 2006, the latter title taken from a sermon by Jeremiah Wright at the Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago.

Before changing its website at tucc.org the church honored W.E.B. DuBois, self-avowed Communist, and Louis Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam, headquartered in New York City. Wright preached black separatism and hatred for the U.S., “Goddamn America” his most infamous remark publicized so widely and available at one time on videotape(s) sold by the church.

The church still honors Jeremiah Wright and proclaims itself Africa- and African-centered, teaching Black Liberation theology.

The Obamas are not known to have gone to a Christian church, except for rare ceremonial occasions since moving from Chicago to D.C.

In the books bearing Obama’s name, read by few – less than 1% of the 25 or less percent – legally or illegally-registered by ACORN U.S. voters in the ’08 election who voted for Obama, Obama makes clear his presumed father was Barack Hussein Obama, Sr. His presumed father abandoned Barack, Jr. and his mother to return to Kenya to his other wife and children.

Obama, Sr. was a Muslim, Marxist, political activist in Kenya before his death in a drunken car crash. Obama, Sr. was buried in a Muslim cemetery by Muslim rites – multiple sources.

In The Audacity Obama explains his entire life as “my exotic background,” p. 120. He says further in context I will leave for you to read, “I will stand with the Muslims,” p. 261.

Obama was raised in his “formative years” – his words – ages 6-10 in Indonesia by Indonesian Muslim Lolo Sotero who Obama’s mother married after they were abandoned by Obama, Sr. – multiple sources including Obama’s books.

Indonesia is a large majority Muslim-dominated country with some of the most violent Muslims against Christians and others anywhere in the world today – multiple sources.

In his Indonesia years as an adopted stepson Obama was known as Barry Sotero. He attended school as a Muslim, studied the Qur’an, attended mosque with his father and prayed rote Muslim prayers from the Qur’an – multiple sources including Obama.

At age 10 Obama was sent from Indonesia to Hawaii to be raised by his white grandparents, principally his white, bank executive grandmother. He was sent to an exclusive, private school. As he writes and says he was mentored in Hawaii, heavy into drugs and alcohol as a pre-teen and teenager, by Frank Marshall Davis, black writer, musician and another self-avowed Communist – multiple sources including Obama.

Some say Davis is Obama’s real father. Obama nor any other living person can be sure who Obama’s father is. Obama’s mother was a promiscuous child, impregnated as an unwed teenage college student by some black man, then an adult woman still interested in Marxist philosophy and men of color and Islam. She died at an early age, confirmed by Obama, it is reported due to sex-related cancer of the uterus – multiple sources including Obama.

From his experiences in Indonesia Obama said, the Muslim call to prayer “is one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset” – multiple sources including Obama.

From Occidental College Obama traveled to Pakistan on an Indonesian passport as an Indonesian citizen at a time when Indonesia did not allow dual citizenship, e.g. U.S. and Indonesian. In Pakistan he stayed at the homes of his closest friends – Muslim men and fellow students at Occidental – multiple sources including Obama.

Obama has made other admissions of his “Muslim faith,” including in a televised interview with George Stephanopoulos, ABC, who graciously tried to correct Obama – video of the interview and multiple sources for both Obama’s admission of his Muslim faith and love of the Muslim call to prayer.

That Obama shares the hatred of Muslims for the U.S. is not arguable since Muslim leaders have called the U.S. “the Great Satan” for years and vowed to destroy us, all Jews, Israel and since the 7th C. to take over the world for Allah, establish a worldwide caliphate with Shar’ia law and to convert, subjugate or murder all unbelievers in Islam. Obama is included in the latter along with his family if he were indeed an unbeliever in Islam.

A principle of Islam is to “seduce (fool, trick) them until strong enough to take them over.” Obama has certainly duped many in the U.S. and the world in pursuit of his aims, his hope for change in and of the U.S. and the world – multiple sources including the Qur’an.

Michelle said, “For the first time in my adult life I am proud of my country because it feels like hope is finally making a comeback” – Milwaukee, WI campaign rally on Feb. 18, 2008, YouTube, Feb. 19, 2008 and other public media sources.

She repeated her pride statement in Madison, WI the same day with some variation, “For the first time in my adult lifetime I am proud of my country and not just because Barack has done well but because I think people are hungry for change. And I have been desperate to see our country moving in that direction and not just feeling so alone in my frustration and disappointment. I’ve seen people who are hungry to be unified around some basic, common issues, and it’s made me proud” -Madison, WI campaign rally, Feb. 18, 2008, on another YouTube, Feb. 19, 2008 and other public media sources.

Michelle’s statement was repeated in a multitude of media so favorable to the Obamas that Bernard Goldberg wrote a book titled A Slobbering Love Affair: The True (and Pathetic) Story of the Torrid Romance Between Barack Obama and the Mainstream Media.

At Princeton as an undergraduate Michelle wrote a paper reporting on a study of the feelings of blacks before, while at and after leaving Princeton. Clearly an expression of her racism and ill feelings toward the U.S., the paper was well written technically but devoid of any value other than a catharsis perhaps for her hatred – her paper available online.

All this is odd indeed because not all get to go to Princeton, Occidental, Columbia, Harvard or any other prestigious U.S. or overseas schools. Only the privileged elite and the set asides for racial, ethnic and other preferences get to do so.

Thus the Obamas are privileged elite; mentored, aided, abetted and supported by Black Separatists, Socialists, Communists, Muslims and terrorists at their chosen church – TUCC in Chicago.

Obama was mentored there by Wright while working as an ACORN community organizer. The Obama’s were married and their children baptized there. At Occidental, Princeton, Columbia and Harvard, and in their jobs in Chicago the Obamas grew with and profited from their closest friends and co-workers. The latter included Rezko, Ayers, a variety of Muslims and other criminals in prison or pending trial and imprisonment – multiple sources.

With that background, laid out by both Barack and Michelle, Obama as President, is leading the U.S. to its knees in bankruptcy, preparing us to welcome “bailout” by those who hold the world’s oil and $ – we know who they are. Then Obama can surrender us to some form of Islamic dhimmi* under control of Muslims and Communist Chinese, Russians, Cubans, Socialist Venezuelans and others. (*Please Google dhimmi for more information on that travesty in history and presently.)

Obama said the presidency is an office for which he is not well suited and later stated that a critical decision regarding abortion was “well above his pay grade,” at the Saddleback Forum during the campaign. Indeed he is not by virtue of his lack of qualification by prior education, training, work and life experiences. Furthermore and most importantly is the high probability based on all available evidence that he is not Constitutionally eligible to have run for President let alone serve as POTUS – multiple sources.

Through either ignorance, naiveté, inexperience, lack of qualification in his first real job, or deliberately as the most radical Liberal, strongly influenced at best by Black Separatists, Socialists, Communists, Islam and terrorists he is leading the U.S. to bankruptcy, ready to welcome “bailout” by those who hold the world’s oil and $, and surrender to some form of Islamic dhimmi under control of Muslims, Communists, Socialists and others – multiple sources.

Both 1) in ignorance, naiveté, inexperience and lack of qualification or 2) deliberately are possibilities, and all by his own admissions in his books – The Audacity of Hope and Dreams From My Father – and in his “campaign rhetoric” – his words again.

All Obama has done before, on and since Jan. 20, 2009 prove what he is doing in carrying out his plan. Either by accidental lack of qualification or by deliberate design the results of Obama are the same – multiple sources including Obama; please see whitehouse.org for the Obama/Biden priorities plan.

He and his Administration show no give, no willingness to deviate from his and its plan. He and his Administration treat the rest of us – we the people – as unfit to judge him and what he is doing to us, the nation and in the world. For the most part he and his ignore us, pressing on with their intents at a rapid, most destructive pace.

Given all that Obama and his Administration leave us no choice.

We can get rid of Obama by legal means maybe before it is too late by writing, calling, visiting our Representative, Senators, the White House, Attorney General, U.S. Supreme Court, Democrat National Committee, Federal Election Commission, the Electoral College although not currently in session, even and most especially the media.

These are our Constitutional rights to work with the people who we have hired and pay to work for us – we the people – not the other way around.

We must demand that they do their jobs, which all have neglected in one way or another, some grossly and willfully.

We must demand they require Obama to show “transparency in government” – prove he is constitutionally eligible to be POTUS and surrender his campaign finance records for independent audit. His campaign finance records are held much in secret. McCain’s are open and available, above board.

The records of proof of his Constitutional eligibility include his real birth certificate; colleges and universities admission, scholarship, attendance, performance records and significant work done at Occidental, Columbia and Harvard; and any and all of his records from Kenya and Indonesia. The Kenyan Ambassador to the U.S. suggested all this some months ago – multiple sources.

All loyal Americans will do this especially those who voted for him; otherwise their votes are lost. All he has done is unlawful, illegal and will be voided leading the U.S. further into anarchy, chaos and third world status to which he thrust the U.S. by running for and serving as President lacking proof of his Constitutional eligibility.

Race riots may result; they have before. They will anyway as Obama disappoints, fails in his promises of hope for change.

Disenchantment with Obama is growing; his approval ratings as POTUS are sinking quickly as is approval of his specific acts, some still secret, unknown outside of Obama and his closest inner circle. A significant and growing number of voters for Obama are expressing voter remorse and have been doing so for some months now – multiple sources, including Rasmussen and other poll takers and reporters.

McCain’s eligibility was determined by the U.S. Congress. Why not Obama’s? – multiple sources.

Liberal Democrat Obamaniacs are sucking us into distractions, majoring in minors, living in the past, and fussing over deck chairs while the ship sinks, along with Obama’s approval ratings. We are letting them do it to us – multiple sources. We must stop it. Stop them. Stop Obama now!

This is not the time to continue engaging in distractions, majoring in minors, living in the past or fussing over deck chairs while the ship sinks.

This is the time to support the President by doing what he has asked all to do – “put aside childish things,” his “campaign rhetoric,” support him in “bipartisan ways, give feedback for transparency in government, hope for change” – multiple sources including primarily Obama.

For those who voted for Obama not do to so shows they do not trust, have faith, belief in Obama. Not to do so shows they are cowards and liars, first to themselves.

We owe it to our brave men and women in uniform to do it. We are in a world war against Islamic jihadists. We have been so since at least the 1970s through seven Presidencies now with varying degrees of success, since the most recent resurgence of Islam in its history. Muslims have made further progress worldwide than ever before, and are on the brink of bringing down the U.S. and other world nations – multiple sources, including again Obama.

Obama is on one hand continuing Bush policies, continuing to put our young men and women into harm’s way overseas. Obama’s policies and actions are jeopardizing them and us on the same battlefronts in Afghanistan and Iraq, elsewhere, and encouraging both old and new enemies of the U.S. to challenge Obama in many ways.

Obama and Biden have said, Obama most recently we are likely to be hit again on our homeland – the U.S. – multiple sources, including Obama.

If for no other reason please do the right thing, help get Obama to prove his eligibility or not as POTUS and Commander in Chief, giving lawful, legal orders to our fathers, mothers, spouses, sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, cousins and close friends who stand between us and more anarchy, chaos and certain destruction.

Our troops from low ranks to an Army Reserve Major General are challenging Obama as POTUS/CINC eligible to issue lawful, legal orders to them putting their lives in jeopardy – multiple sources.

I love this joke!

JOKE: Doctors Bragging

An Israeli doctor says ‘Medicine in my country is so advanced that we can take a kidney out of one man, put it in another, and have him looking for work in six weeks.’A German doctor says ‘That is nothing; we can take a lung out of one person, put it in another, and have him looking for work in four weeks.’

A Russian doctor says ‘In my country, medicine is so advanced that we can take half a heart out of one person, put it in another, and have them both looking for work in two weeks.’

The ILLINOIS doctor, not to be outdone, says ‘You guys are way behind, we recently took a man with no brains out of ILLINOIS , put him in the White House for TWO MONTHS, and now half the WORLD is looking for work.’

Obama’s First Judicial Nominee: Another Slap in the Face of Christian Conservatives

Posted on March 25, 2009. Filed under: Liberal Idiots, Obama, Politics, Religion |

All I can say to all of you ‘christians’ who voted for Obama is ‘you get what you deserve’. But unfortunately the rest of us are stuck with him too! Look at this nominee’s past to see what he’ll be like in the future…

Obama’s First Judicial Nominee: Another Slap in the Face of Christian Conservatives
by Mario DiazWhile President Obama continues to talk about unity and hope on his current “media tour,” with his actions he continues to divide, alienate, and disregard the millions of pro-life, pro-family Americans whom he is still supposed to serve.

The reversal of the Mexico City policy, expanding destructive embryonic stem cell research, the push to force doctors to perform abortions, and the numerous nominations of extremely radical nominees like David Ogden, Kathleen Sebelius and Dawn Johnsen, among many others, are just a few of the many actions where he has shown contempt for people of faith.

He continues to do so with his first judicial nomination: Judge David Hamilton to the U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals. An examination of Judge Hamilton’s record as a U.S. District Court Judge should bring chills to all freedom-loving people in America.
Judge Hamilton was the infamous activist judge who in 2005 ordered the Speaker of the Indiana House to immediately stop the practice of “sectarian prayers” at the opening of the legislative session. Apparently the prayers were too Christian for Mr. Hamilton. “[T]hey should refrain from using Christ’s name or title,” he ordered.

The Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals, where he is to serve if President Obama has his way, eventually overturned his foolish decision.
Hamilton also issued a series of rulings over seven years that prevented the state of Indiana from enforcing its informed-consent law requiring abortionists to inform women about the risks of the abortion procedure. The law was identical to the Pennsylvania statute that the United States Supreme Court upheld in Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania v. Casey. But Judge Hamilton seems to have little concern for the law or precedent, and in a classic case of judicial activism, struck down the law claiming it imposed an “undue burden” on a woman’s ability to obtain an abortion.

Again, his stubborn and dangerous ruling was reversed on appeal to the Seventh Circuit, where the court strongly criticized his decision, calling it an “abuse of discretion.”

Before any of these decisions as a district judge, Hamilton served as a board member of the Indiana chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and as a fundraiser for the liberal activist group ACORN. He was later nominated by President Clinton to the district court and the American Bar Association (ABA) rated Hamilton as “not qualified” at that time.

But we all know what booting Jesus out of the public square and abusing your discretion to promote abortion will get you these days: a “well qualified” rating by the ABA and a promotion to a lifetime appointment on a federal court of appeals from President Obama.

I hope this latest slap wakes us up. Many conservatives were hoping President Obama would show some good faith by re-nominating some of President Bush’s nominees, as President Bush did with several Clinton nominees. Far from it.

No Senator in good conscience should vote for this nominee. Judge Hamilton has shown himself to be an activist judge all too willing to disregard the law to advance his ideology. To prevent such a judge from ever being confirmed is the very purpose of the “advice and consent” process.

Administrative Municipal Judge Makes Racially Tinged Remarks in Dallas Weekly Column

Posted on March 25, 2009. Filed under: Political Correctness, Reverse Discrimination |

Anti-white racism is alive and well, but nobody cares…

Administrative municipal judge makes racially tinged remarks in ‘Dallas Weekly’ column
Wednesday, March 18, 2009
By RUDOLPH BUSH / The Dallas Morning News
The lead judge of Dallas’ municipal courts has come under heavy scrutiny at City Hall for a racially charged column he wrote for a southern Dallas newspaper earlier this month.

In a column about Dallas County District Attorney Craig Watkins’ efforts to reform that office, Administrative Judge C. Victor Lander wrote in the Dallas Weekly that “black folks have been cleaning up white folks’ messes for hundreds of years, so why should we expect any different now?”

The column, published in the March 4-10 edition, has set off a storm of criticism and led to at least one City Council member’s call for Lander’s resignation.

“I am extremely offended and hurt by these unwarranted comments,” council member Mitchell Rasansky wrote in a letter calling for Lander to step down.

Lander, who like all municipal judges is appointed by the City Council, apologized Tuesday for the comment but said he does not plan to step down.

He said his column was intended to point out the hard work done by Watkins, who is also black, and does not reflect on his judgments from the bench or his work administering the city’s municipal courts.

“This is a very diverse city, and I try to look at the city with colorblindness not color-consciousness,” Lander said.

Council member Angela Hunt, who led a council committee that selected the city’s municipal judges, said she was troubled by Lander’s comment but said she wanted to speak with him before drawing any conclusions.

She praised his handling of a number of issues facing the courts he manages, which deal largely with traffic citations and other violations of city ordinances.

“He’s new to this job and new to having this much focus on his words. He needs to be more thoughtful in the future, and I’m hopeful he’ll clarify his statement,” Hunt said.

Deputy Mayor Pro Tem Dwaine Caraway came to Lander’s defense, saying he should not step down.

“Society has changed. People are able to put more on the table and discuss it without feeling like they’re being slapped in the face,” he said.

Mayor Tom Leppert declined to comment until discussing the issue with Lander.

Though Lander has been the court’s administrative judge for only about 10 months, he has served as a municipal judge for 12 years. And he has written for Dallas Weekly since 2004 or 2005, he said.

In that time, his column – tailored to the black readership it primarily serves – has pulled few punches when it comes to politics and race.

In a Feb. 28 column about the political dust-up over President Barack Obama’s former pastor Jeremiah Wright, Lander wrote, “I wanted to make sure that you who read this and other African-American newspapers know that the only place you will get the truth is from your own people, and you should be forever suspect of the mainstream media …”

In the same column, he also warned the black community against blaming others for its troubles.

Recalling a series of murders allegedly committed by minorities, he wrote, “What has happened to our community when our young people can even think about doing things like this, and we can only apologize and blame someone else?”

In a series of political columns, Lander has been relentless in calls for the prosecution of former President George W. Bush and members of his administration.

He has also called for prosecutions in Dallas of former district attorneys and assistant district attorneys who might have knowingly sent innocent men and women to prison.

“I, too, can [in the spirit of Christianity] forgive George W. Bush and the others for what they have done – but not until they are tried and convicted. It’s only fair,” he wrote in the Jan. 1-7 Dallas Weekly.

In an interview Tuesday, Lander said he separates his column from his work on the bench.

“While we do serve as judges, we maintain our independence. We are still members of the community, and we are persons who have a duty and a responsibility that if you see wrong, you try to right it,” he said.

Lander also said he considers his column more educational than political.

“I try desperately to educate the people … I really have a responsibility. God gave me a gift to be able to articulate things,” he said.

Obama’s Plan for ‘Brown Shirts’ – Mandatory National Service

Posted on March 25, 2009. Filed under: Military, Obama, Politics, Socialism/Communism |

Here’s your future, America…How do you like it?

HOUSE ADOPTS PLAN FOR ‘VOLUNTEER’ CORP

Also requires new evaluation of ‘mandatory’ service for all
By Bob Unruh
© 2009 WorldNetDaily

The U.S. House of Representatives has approved a plan to set up a new “volunteer corps” and consider whether “a workable, fair, and reasonable mandatory service requirement for all able young people” should be developed.

The legislation also refers to “uniforms” that would be worn by the “volunteers” and the “need” for a “public service academy, a 4-year institution” to “focus on training” future “public sector leaders.” The training, apparently, would occur at “campuses.”

The vote yesterday came on H.R. 1388, which reauthorizes through 2014 the National and Community Service Act of 1990 and the Domestic Volunteer Service Act of 1973, acts that originally, among other programs, funded the AmeriCorps and the National Senior Service Corps.

It not only reauthorizes the programs, but also includes “new programs and studies” and is expected to be funded with an allocation of $6 billion over the next five years, according to the Congressional Budget Office.

Many, however, are raising concerns that the program, which is intended to include 250,000 “volunteers,” is the beginning of what President Obama called his “National Civilian Security Force” in a a speech last year in which he urged creating an organization as big and well-funded as the U.S. military. He has declined since then to elaborate.

WND reported when a copy of the speech provided online apparently was edited to exclude Obama’s specific references to the new force.

The new bill specifically references the possibilities “if all individuals in the United States were expected to perform national service or were required to perform a certain amount of national service.”

Such new requirements perhaps, the legislation notes, “would strengthen the social fabric of the Nation and overcome civic challenges by bringing together people from diverse economic, ethnic, and educational backgrounds.”

No one, apparently with the exception of infants, would be excluded:

“The means to develop awareness of national service and volunteer opportunities at a young age by creating, expanding, and promoting service options for elementary and secondary school students, through service learning or other means, and by raising awareness of existing incentives.”

According to a report by Canada Free Press, “‘volunteerism’ that kept America running since the days of its founding” would be “wiped out with the stroke of a pen.”

“It becomes forced labor and like the practice of another era, presses American citizens of all ages and creeds, unknowingly into military service,” the commentary said.

“On paper, H.R. 1388 is the ‘Generations Invigorating Volunteerism and Education Act’; the more innocuous sounding ‘The Give Act,’ for short.

“The Give Act puts the finishing touches to Public Allies New Leadership for New Times, modeled after Saul Alinsky’s ‘Peoples Organizations’ and operating under Michelle Obama,” the commentary said.

“Michelle was also a pioneer in the social entrepreneur movement – leaders who create new approaches and organize to provide new solutions to social problems. Like most things Saul Alinsky, H.R. 1388 sounds noble in stating why wide-sweeping change is necessary,” the commentary said.

“H.R. 1388 goes straight to the heart of volunteerism in America, impacting everything from the lemonade stands of neighborhood children, to the residents of senior citizens homes. … The Give Act puts tow-headed school children and silver-haired seniors in the official uniform of the new State, and encompasses every walk of life in main-street America,” the commentary said. “Whether you are young or old, or firmly believe that volunteering means you are offering your time to the good of community work, you will be pressed into Obama’s National Civilian Community Corps.”

Groups of such “volunteers,” would, under the legislation, be “grouped together as appropriate in campuses for operational, support, and boarding purposes. The Corps campus for a unit shall be in a facility or central location established as the operational headquarters and boarding place for the unit. … There shall be a superintendent for each camp.”

The plan generated this concern from Resistnet.com: “This is the equivalent of brown shirts.”

Another portion of the bill talks about a “service learning” plan that will be “a mandatory part of the curriculum in all of the secondary schools served by the local educational agency.”

A forum participant noted, “I wonder what’s going to happen to those who refused to ‘volunteer.’ Maybe they will be put into a different ‘campus.’ I guess we will soon find out.”

Formal announcements about the plan suggested something far different, picking a provision far down in the 200 pages of legislation to highlight.

According to a Business Wire statement released by Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., the bill “would formally authorize federal support for establishing the anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks on America as a National Day of Service and Remembrance.”

That provision is tucked into the far reaches of the legislation, but Schumer discussed it as if it were the primary point.

“I could not be more proud to work to pass this important provision,” said Schumer. “September 11 should not only be a day for mourning – it should be a day to think about our neighbors, our community, and our country. We can take a tragic day in our nation’s history and turn it into a force for good.”

On the Albany Insanity blog, this concern was raised: “What gives the government the right to require individuals to give three years service under the guise of ‘volunteer’ service? It is not explicit exactly who is required but I think they get the bill passed and then iron out the details. It talks about uniforms and ‘camps.’ They revise the word ‘camps’ and call it ‘campus.’ There is language about Seniors and Community organizations.”

The blog noted, such work forces would be used for “pressing national and local challenges” that apparently could range from weather disasters to economic uncertainty.

At a Republican website, officials noted it authorizes funding for an Education Corps, Healthy Futures Corps, Clean Energy Corps, Veterans’ Corps and Opportunity Corps.

The bill was sponsored by Rep. Carolyn McCarthy, a Democrat from New York. It was approved in the House 321-105, with mostly GOP opposition. It now goes to the Senate.

WND reported earlier on Obama’s Colorado Springs campaign speech when he sought a civilian security force as big and well-funded as the military – with a budget of hundreds of billions of dollars.

WND later reported when the official website for Obama, Change.gov, announced he would “require” all middle school through college students to participate in community service programs.

However, after a flurry of blogs protested children being drafted into Obama’s proposed youth corps, officials softened the website’s wording.

Originally, under the tab “America Serves,” Change.gov read, “President-Elect Obama will expand national service programs like AmeriCorps and Peace Corps and will create a new Classroom Corps to help teachers in under served schools, as well as a new Health Corps, Clean Energy Corps, and Veterans Corps.

“Obama will call on citizens of all ages to serve America, by developing a plan to require 50 hours of community service in middle school and high school and 100 hours of community service in college every year,” the site announced.

WND previously reported on a video of a marching squad of Obama youth.

Joseph Farah, founder and editor of WND, used his daily column first to raise the issue and then to elevate it with a call to all reporters to start asking questions.

“If we’re going to create some kind of national police force as big, powerful and well-funded as our combined U.S. military forces, isn’t this rather a big deal?” Farah wrote. “I thought Democrats generally believed the U.S. spent too much on the military. How is it possible their candidate is seeking to create some kind of massive but secret national police force that will be even bigger than the Army, Navy, Marines and Air Force put together?

“Is Obama serious about creating some kind of domestic security force bigger and more expensive than that? If not, why did he say it? What did he mean?” Farah wrote.

Five Ways that Insanity Has Become the New Normal in America

Posted on March 16, 2009. Filed under: Culture, Environmental Whackos, Global Warming Hoax, Illegal Immigration, Politics, Socialism/Communism |

I have said time and time again that I feel like I’m living in CRAZYLAND because what used to be right is wrong and what used to be wrong is right. John Hawkins explains 5 of these issues very well in the following article…

Five Ways that Insanity Has Become the New Normal in America
by John Hawkins

“In ordinary times, people who do no more than describe the world around them are seen as pragmatists, while those who imagine fabulous alternative futures are viewed as radicals. The last couple of decades haven’t been ordinary, however. …(T)he pragmatists were the ones simply looking out the window and noticing that the real world was increasingly resembling the unthinkable scenario. These people were treated as if they were barking mad. Meanwhile the people spinning…visions unsupported by reality, were regarded not as charlatans but saviors.” — Clay Shirky in an explanation of the downfall of the newspaper business that also describes what’s happening in America

Since Barack Obama has been elected, gun sales and copies of Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged have flown off the shelves. Meanwhile, there’s a Russian academic all over the news predicting that America will soon collapse, “tea parties” springing up all over the country, and the stock market has been doing a great impression of Michael Richards’ career since he left Seinfeld.

Is that because people have gone crazy? No, it’s the reaction of sane people to the crazy as a football bat insanity that has begun to pass for conventional wisdom in large swathes of America. Living in this country today is like sitting in the back seat of a car that’s hurtling towards the edge of a cliff at a hundred miles an hour while the driver fiddles with the radio and the guy in the passenger seat mocks the very idea of using brakes.

When sheer insanity becomes the new normal, people who can admit that the emperor has no clothes are left to point out:

The Global Warming Fraud: There are few things stranger than watching a “debate” over global warming. One side constantly quotes scientific facts, makes logical arguments, and tries to appeal to reason. These people are called “anti-science” by the side that “argues” by comparing their opponents to Holocaust deniers, spins apocalyptic doomsday scenarios out of whole cloth, and is constantly dinged for stretching the truth on the few scientific facts they do talk about. These people are the ones who supposedly “put science first” in the debate.

Meanwhile, the earth has been getting warmer and colder since it was formed, the planet has been considerably warmer in the past than it is today, and the earth is currently cooling, not warming. Yet and still, our President intends to spend hundreds of billions of dollars on a Cap and Trade scheme that will spike energy costs into the stratosphere so that we can solve this non-existent “problem.”

The Lawsuit Lottery: In our legal system, you can injure yourself doing something utterly stupid, sue someone who just happened to be in the vicinity while you acted like a lunatic, and if you get lucky, you can walk away with millions of dollars while he’s driven out of business. It’s like playing the lottery, except your odds of winning are much better.

The evidence of how warped our legal system has become is all around us. It’s difficult to find an obstetrician in some parts of the country because they’ve been sued out of existence. In California, it’s legal to sue good Samaritans who try to help people who’ve been injured. Many people and corporations actually settle lawsuits that they know they would eventually win because it’s cheaper and less of a hassle than defending themselves in court because our system, in most cases, provides no compensation whatsoever for being the target of a meritless lawsuit.

This illness in our justice system goes all the way up to the Supreme Court, where we have four justices who believe in actually sticking to the Constitution and four who vote for whichever result best serves liberalism. That means whether a law is ruled unconstitutional or not may often depend on little more than whether Anthony Kennedy got enough sleep or is a little cranky because his lunch was delivered late. Justice is supposed to be blind, but we’ve gone one step further in America and made it random.

Demonizing Success and Rewarding Failure: In America, we have a government that rewards people for failure. If you lose your job, we will incentivize you not to get back to work with unemployment insurance. If you stay out of work long enough, then we’ll give you welfare and more money via a “tax credit.” If you don’t pay your mortgage, then we’ll help you out with that, too. Is your corporation going out of business? Then we’ll bail you out. Long story short, if you’re failing in life, then we will give you goodies to reward you for it.

On the other hand, successful people are suspect, just by virtue of their success and therefore, they must be punished. At a time when taxes are already so high that corporations are fleeing overseas and even the Treasury Secretary is a tax cheat, the President is planning massive tax hikes on both successful individuals and corporations. After all, how are we going to reward all of life’s losers if we don’t take the money from people who have succeeded? In order to justify killing the Goose who laid the Golden Egg, successful people are regularly vilified as greedy nuisances to society who should be thrilled to have the money they worked for confiscated by people who hate them so it can be handed to people far less industrious than themselves.

But, what you subsidize, you get more of and what you penalize, you decrease. That’s one of the oldest and simplest lessons in the book; yet it’s one we never seem to learn.

Spending Money Like We’re Never Going To Have To Pay It Back: Here’s Peter Schweizer describing how the Soviet Union was broken by Reagan,
First of all, the Soviet Union has been in economic crisis, there was an economic crisis from the very beginning in 1917, but they’d always been able to figure out a way, working internationally, to bail out their system. They got western businesses that would set up industries, they got western banks to loan them money, they were able to get peace agreements with the West that would provide temporary relief to their economy. So the Soviet economy was always in crisis but they’d always been bailed out by the West. Reagan’s administration is really the only one that never did that.

So, the Soviet Union relied on its enemies to keep it financially afloat and when they refused to do it any longer, it was the beginning of the end. Well, replace the “Soviet Union” with the “United States” and “The West” with “China” and ask yourself: doesn’t it seem more than a little familiar?

What happens if China decides one day that they’d like to see us go the way of the Soviet Union and does to us what we did to the Reds? Do we end up with skyrocketing inflation that makes a dollar today worth ten cents tomorrow? Do we end up passing on such large debts onto our children that we will guarantee that they can never have the opportunity to grow up in the sort of great country that we did? The people spending our money? The frightening thing is not that they’re coming up with different answers; it’s that they’re not even asking the questions.

Our Topsy-Turvy Approach To Illegal Immigration: Although we have laws on the books designed to prevent illegal immigration, they are systematically ignored or the people in charge of enforcing them are deliberately understaffed so they can’t fulfill their duties. Bizarrely, people who merely suggest that the laws on our books should actually be enforced are derided as racists and nativists. Worse yet, to suggest that tens of millions of uneducated foreigners, many of whom don’t speak the language or obey our laws, should not be able to benefit from breaking our laws by staying here permanently is treated as beyond the pale. Why, how dare we “break up the families” of people who have been shamelessly breaking our laws for so long that they’ve had time to start a family here?

Despite the fact that we’ve already had a “one time only amnesty” and drug violence is now regularly spilling over our borders, advocates of amnesty are unfazed. In fact, under Barack Obama we’ve actually gotten to the point where we’re prosecuting people like Sheriff Joe Arpaio for enforcing our immigration laws even as we create 300,000 jobs for illegal immigrants with the stimulus plan.

If you don’t have borders, you don’t have a country — and if we believe we can turn tens of millions of poor, uneducated, non-English speaking people with no love for our nation or respect for our laws, into productive, well assimilated, loyal Americans merely by granting them citizenship — then we’re engaging in exactly the sort of magical thinking that has helped undermine and destroy more than a few nations — including most notably, the Roman Empire.

Embracing of Shariah?

Posted on March 16, 2009. Filed under: Muslim Invasion, Obama, Politics, Religion, Terrorism |

How far do we let Obama go before we stop him? When do we let him know that we will not sit idly by and let him force us into Islamic law? We better stop him soon or it will be too late!!

Embracing of Shariah?
‘Respect’ should be a two-way street
Frank Gaffney Jr.
Tuesday, March 17, 2009President Obama on Friday reiterated for the umpteenth time his determination to develop a “new relationship” with the Muslim world. On this occasion, the audience were the leaders of Saudi Arabia, Indonesia and the Philippines.

Unfortunately, it increasingly appears that, in so doing, he will be embracing the agenda of the Muslim Brotherhood – an organization dedicated to promoting the theo-political-legal program authoritative Islam calls Shariah and that has the self-described mission of “destroying Western civilization from within.”

As part of Mr. Obama’s “Respect Islam” campaign, he will travel to Turkey in early April. While there, he will not only pay tribute to an Islamist government that has systematically wrested every institution from the secular tradition of Kemal Ataturk and put the country squarely on the path to Islamification. He will also participate in something called the “Alliance of Civilizations.”

The Alliance is a United Nations-sponsored affair that reflects – as, increasingly do most things the United Nations is involved in – the views of the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC). The OIC is made up of 57 Muslim-majority nations. Thanks to support from Saudi Arabia and its proxies, the Muslim Brotherhood has become a driving force within the Conference and their agendas largely coincide.

For example, in 2005 a communique issued after a summit in Mecca declared: “The Conference underlined the need to collectively endeavor to reflect the noble Islamic values, counter Islamophobia, defamation of Islam and its values and desecration of Islamic holy sites, and to effectively coordinate with states as well as regional and international institutions and organizations to urge them to criminalize this phenomenon as a form of racism.”

Ominously, as part of its bid to “criminalize” Islamophobia, the OIC is seeking “deterrent punishments.” It insists that not only freedom of expression but all human rights be circumscribed by the OIC’s 1990 Cairo Declaration on Human Rights in Islam, which concludes with the caveat that, “All the rights and freedoms stipulated in this Declaration are subject to the Islamic Shariah.” Translation: Liberties enshrined in the United Nations’ foundational Universal Declaration of Human Rights are largely rendered null and void.

The demand that no criticism of Islam be permitted is the pre-eminent feature of the Muslim Brotherhood’s efforts in the West. In fact, it is but the leading edge of the Brothers’ bid to suppress public awareness of the threat posed by their program in societies that pride themselves on religious tolerance, thereby facilitating seditious penetration and influence operations by the Shariah-adherent.

A playbook for the latter can be found in a publication issued last fall by the U.S.-Muslim Engagement Project being aggressively promoted to the Obama administration and Congress by a number of its non-Muslim participants. Notably, former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright recently effusively presented to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee the Project’s book titled “Changing Course: A New Direction for U.S. Relations with the Muslim World.” Former Minnesota Rep. Vin Weber did the same at Grover Norquist’s weekly meeting of conservative activists last week.

Underwritten largely by George Soros’ and other left-wing foundations, “Changing Course” seems to reflect predominantly the recommendations of groups the government has established are Muslim Brotherhood fronts, such as the Islamic Society of North America and the Muslim Public Affairs Council. Both are represented in the Engagement Project’s “Leadership Group.” Accordingly, its book calls for:

c “Engagement with groups that have clearly demonstrated a commitment to nonviolent participation in politics” (read, the Brotherhood).

c “Not equat[ing] reform with secularism, nor … assum[ing] that reformers who advocate some form of Shariah as the basis for the rule of law will inevitably abuse human rights or adopt anti-American policies.”

c “Not supply[ing] additional ammunition to extremists by linking the term ‘Islam’ or key tenets of the religion of Islam with the actions of extremist or terrorist groups.”

c Launching “an education program comparable in scale” to “the more than $7 billion” invested in the “post-Sputnik U.S. commitment to math and science education” to “education on Islam and Muslims, sustained over a decade or more, focused on teacher training and curriculum in middle and high schools, and colleges.”

Emboldened by the promise of this influence operation and the apparent willingness of the Obama administration to embrace the Muslim Brotherhood’s agenda – in part, if not in its entirety – the organization’s assorted fronts in America are becoming ever more audacious.

In response to a long-overdue decision taken by the FBI last year to terminate “sensitivity training” of its agents by one of the most prominent of these fronts, the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), assorted Brotherhood groups and operatives reportedly intend to announce that Muslims will henceforth cease any and all cooperation with U.S. law enforcement until CAIR is rehabilitated.

Such a step would call into question the patriotism of the many Muslims in America who do not embrace the Brotherhood’s Shariah agenda – something that would, presumably, be as offensive to them as it would be troubling to the rest of us. It could also expose those engaged in it to criminal charges of “misprision of felony,” conspiring to withhold information from the authorities concerning terrorist operations and activities in the Muslim community.

The message should go forth: Friends of the Muslim Brotherhood are no friends of America. We follow their guidance at our peril.

Frank J. Gaffney Jr. is president of the Center for Security Policy and a columnist for The Washington Times.

Worries Grow that Barack Obama & Co. Have a Competence Problem

Posted on March 15, 2009. Filed under: Obama, Politics |

This goes right along with the previous article that was posted. Obama doesn’t know what he’s doing and some people are finally noticing.

More than a bad day: Worries grow that Barack Obama & Co. have a competence problem
By Michael Goodwin
NY Daily News
Not long ago, after a string of especially bad days for the Obama administration, a veteran Democratic pol approached me with a pained look on his face and asked, “Do you think they know what they’re doing?”

The question caught me off guard because the man is a well-known Obama supporter. As we talked, I quickly realized his asking suggested his own considerable doubts.

Yes, it’s early, but an eerily familiar feeling is spreading across party lines and seeping into the national conversation. It’s a nagging doubt about the competency of the White House.

It was during George W. Bush’s second term that the I-word – incompetence – became a routine broadside against him. The Democratic frenzy of Bush-bashing had not spent itself when a larger critique emerged, one not confined by partisan boundaries.

The charge of incompetence covered the mismanagement of Iraq, the response to Hurricane Katrina and the economic meltdown. By the time Bush left, the charge tipped the scales to where most of America, including many who had been supporters or just sympathetic, viewed him as a failed President.

The tag of incompetence is powerful precisely because it is a nondenominational rebuke, even when it yields a partisan result. It became the strongest argument against the GOP hammerlock on Washington and, over two elections, gave Democrats their turn at total control.
But already feelings of doubt are rising again. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid were never held in high regard, so doubts about their motives and abilities are not surprising.

What matters more is the growing concern about Obama and his team. The longest campaign in presidential history is being followed by a very short honeymoon.

Polls show that most people like Obama, but they increasingly don’t like his policies. The vast spending hikes and plans for more are provoking the most concern, with 82% telling a Gallup survey they are worried about the deficit and 69% worried about the rapid growth of government under Obama. Most expect their own taxes will go up as a result, despite the President’s promises to the contrary.
None other than Warren Buffet, an Obama supporter, has called the administration’s message on the economy “muddled.” Even China says it is worried about its investments in American Treasury bonds. Ouch.

Much of the blame falls on Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner, whose appalling tax problems softened the ground under him before he took office. After his initial fumbling presentations, he became a butt of jokes on “Saturday Night Live,” not a sustainable image for the point man in a recession. And still the market waits for his answer to the banks’ toxic assets.

It’s also notable that four people lined up for top jobs under Geithner have withdrawn, leaving one British official to complain that there is nobody to talk to at the Treasury Department. Perhaps it was a bid to combat the Geithner blues that led Larry Summers, Obama’s top economic adviser, to make an unusual appearance Friday in which he defended the spending plans everyone is so worried about.

Yet the doubts aren’t all about Geithner, and they were reinforced by the bizarre nomination and withdrawal of Chas Freeman as a top intelligence official. It’s hard to know which explanation is worse: that the White House didn’t know of Freeman’s intemperate criticism of Israel and his praise of China’s massacre at Tiananmen Square, or that it didn’t care. Good riddance to him. But what of those who picked him?
Which brings us to the heart of the matter: the doubts about Obama himself. His famous eloquence is wearing thin through daily exposure and because his actions are often disconnected from his words. His lack of administrative experience is showing.

His promises and policies contradict each other often enough that evidence of hypocrisy is ceasing to be news. Remember the pledges about bipartisanship and high ethics? They’re so last year.

The beat goes on. Last week, Obama brazenly gave a speech about earmark reform just after he quietly signed a $410 billion spending bill that had about 9,000 earmarks in it. He denounced Bush’s habit of disregarding pieces of laws he didn’t like, so-called signing statements, then issued one himself.
And in an absolute jaw-dropper, he told business leaders, “I don’t like the idea of spending more government money, nor am I interested in expanding government’s role.”

No wonder Americans are confused. Our President is, too.

Why the Polls Say Obama is Worse than Bush

Posted on March 15, 2009. Filed under: Obama, Politics, Socialism/Communism |

To all of those avid Obama followers, I hate to say “I told you so”, but…I told you! This president is leading us into ruin!! The only question is how far we will let it go until there’s a revolt and we take this country back!

Why The Polls Say Obama Is Worse Than Bush

Townhall.com
Kevin McCullough
Sunday, March 15, 2009

Excerpt:

There is much more to the fact that President Obama now polls lower than President Bush did at fifty days into his presidency than merely what bi-partisan pollsters Schoen and Rasmussen were able to point out this week. In nearly every category of performance, President Obama has adeptly demonstrated that he is in over his head, and sinking fast. “We the people” sense his inability to make sound decisions and thusly, the President has wiped out nearly all of the Republican support he enjoyed not long ago, and Independents are not far behind.

When you consider the sector of the Democratic base that thinks raising taxes on everyday working people is bad, you even begin to see a schism in his base not previously thought to be possible.

Seriously, in nearly every category of governance he has messed up royally, and is clueless, or wantonly stubborn to do the things that will fix any of the problems. At the end of the day something will change. President Obama will formulate new policies, or “We The People” will use a shepherd’s staff rather easily in 2012.

In my syndicated column and on my blog, I have been tracking the number of campaign promises that he has broken. Yet many of these don’t even rise to half the level of importance on the issues that “We The People” are growing increasingly concerned about.

On the economy, the unemployment numbers have skyrocketed in the opposite direction, escalating especially hard following the signing of his stimulus plan. The plan, according to leading ecconomists, that only dedicated roughly 3% of the total amount towards actual job creation. On this point Warren Buffet, one of President Obama’s strong supporters in the campaign, expressed grave reservation.

*snip*

On national security Chavez has taunted him, North Korea has threatened him, Iran has burned him in effigy, and Russia, Cuba, and Venezuela are plotting ways to put Russian long range bombers in our hemisphere and directly off our coast.

On terrorism Iran, Al Qaeda, and bin Ladin are openly laughing at him. Maybe his giving Hamas — a terror group, on the international terror watch list — 90 (sic) million dollars, wasn’t quite the bold stroke of genius his cabinet told him it would be.

No doubt, however, that President Obama’s most pressing problem with the public is the fact that now 83% of the American people say they are worried that the steps he has taken to fix the economy will have the opposite effect and make things worse. 82% of the American people say they are worried about the monstrous rise in the national debt. 78% of the American people believe inflation will come quickly. And 69% do not have any confidence in the role of government mandated solutions to the economy. There is also now no sense in the American people that the stimulus will have any positive effect any time soon. Only 60% hold out hope that it will have any impact realized four years from now.

Most importantly by a margin of 12% the American people believe the stimulus will only help and unfairly benefit those who have already been irresponsible.

Every single one of the actions described and taken in this piece are actions connected directly to Obama. Remember, a clear majority of Americans thought any form of stimulus help should have come primarily through reducing the tax burden, not saddling it up for rides into the sunset.

We’ve heard the word “crisis” roll off the lips of the administration like syrup in recent days.
But now, President Obama has one of his own. His policies are failing in every direction. “We The People” are worried.
So for a man who campaigned on change, why not start practicing what you preach Mr. President?
