OVERWHELMING Lies To America By Obama - Thanks IJ
from The Betrayal by David-Crockett


The accumulated weight of Obama’s deceit is overwhelming…

* During his campaign for the presidency and since, Obama repeatedly assured us that he would protect Medicare against cuts; but he now presses for passage of bills that include savage cuts in Medicare.

* To obtain passage of his first stimulus bill, Obama assured us that 90% of the jobs created would be in the private sector; but as he well knew, most of them were to be in the p! ublic sector.

* Early in the health care debate, Obama assured us that he had not said that he favored a single payer system; but he was on record as having said exactly that.

* Obama gave primary voters a firm assurance that if he became the nominee of the Democratic party he would (unlike Hillary Clinton) abide by the campaign finance limits of public funding; but as soon as he became the party’s nominee, he reneged on that pledge.

* During the presidential campaign Obama criticized the presence of former lobbyists in the Bush administration and solemnly assured us that he would appoint no lobbyists to his administration; but once elected he proceeded to appoint even more lobbyists than his predecessors.

* Obama criticized the size of George Bush’s deficit and promised to stop deficit spending if elected; but he has already quadrupled the size of the deficit he objected to and recklessly continues new federal spending in the trillions.
* When campaigning Obama criticized bills before the congr! ess that were too long for anyone to be able to read and promised to stop that; but the bills he has been backing throughout his first year are infinitely longer (2000+ pages) than the ones he criticized.

* Candidate Obama promised an end to the corruption of earmarks and pork, but in the bills he has supported this year there have been more and bigger earmarks than ever before.

* Candidate Obama promised us that CIA personnel involved in the interrogation of terrorists would not be prosecuted; but his administration is now doing exactly that.

* Obama assured a joint session of Congress that the health bill he supported (pre-Stupak) would not provide public funding for abortions; but bitter resistance on the part of House Democrats to inclusion of language to that effect soon proved that it did.

* Candidate Obama promised that he would make sure that there was always enough time for the public to read legislation before it was enacted; but he has done! exactly the opposite, repeatedly pressing for even faster passage of even longer bills.

* Candidate Obama met fears that he would be a tax and spend liberal by promising, emphatically and repeatedly, that those earning under $200,000 would see no increase in their taxes of any kind; but he now urges passage of a healthcare bill that breaks that pledge in many different ways, and his unrestrained increase in federal spending makes more tax increases inevitable.

* Candidate Obama promised bipartisanship and an end to partisan bickering; but in a display of especially ruthless partisanship his allies have shut Republicans out of all key meetings on his health care initiative, with the unprecedented result that domestic legislation of historic importance garnered not a single Republican vote in the Senate.

* Candidate Obama criticized his opponent’s plan to tax employer paid healthcare benefits, and promised he would not tax them; but the bill he now ba! cks will do just that.

* Obama had promised that he wo! uld not sign a healthcare bill that would add one dime to the federal deficit; but the bill he now backs adds trillions in new federal spending, offset only by new sources of revenue that are both uncertain and more properly seen as offsetting the already existing deficit.

* Obama coerced congress into passing his stimulus bill by promising that if it were passed unemployment could go no higher then 8%; but unemployment is now at 10%, and he could not possibly have had good reason to exclude that possibility.

* Obama promised that his cap and trade legislation will create jobs; but its massive tax increases will certainly hobble the economy and destroy jobs, while green jobs in significant numbers can at best be hoped for, but never promised.

* Obama has repeatedly assured the American people that if they like their current health plan they can keep it; but the House bill which he supported created huge incentives for employers to drop their coverage and shif! t their members to a public option.

* Obama has just as often assured the public that under his health plan everyone will be able to keep their current doctor; but many are certain to lose their doctors when ObamaCare’s large cuts in Medicare funding induce more doctors to withdraw from Medicare coverage, as they also would were employers to transfer patients to a public option to save money.

* Obama assured a joint session of Congress that his health plan would not fund illegal aliens; but his allies had been busy voting down amendments to that effect. (This was the point of Joe Wilson’s outburst.)

* Obama claimed that John Deere’s CEO had told him that Deere would begin hiring again as a result of the stimulus bill; but that individual immediately announced that he had said no such thing, and that Deere would in fact be laying off more workers.

* Candidate Obama promised that Guantanamo would be closed by January 1, 2010; but it is still op! en.

* Candidate Obama promised that his administration! (unlike his predecessor’s) would be so transparent that TV cameras (C-Span) would be there for key deliberations; but an unprecedented level of secrecy prevails as the final stages of Obamacare are negotiated behind closed doors and kept so secret that even the Senate majority whip admitted that he had no idea what was going on. Requests for Obama to honor the promise of C-Span cameras are being ignored.

* To gain traction for his attempt to return a would-be socialist dictator in Honduras to power, Obama claimed that he had been overthrown in an illegal coup; but the congressional research service pointed out correctly that ex-President Zelaya had been removed for constitutionally sufficient cause by legal and constitutional means.

* Obama claims that he wants a public option only to increase choice and competition; but the House bill would clearly reduce choice both by squeezing unsubsidized private health plans out of the market, and by setting rigid conditions o! n acceptable plans that would narrow available options.

* Candidate Obama claimed that violent radical Bill Ayers was just another guy in his neighborhood; but the record shows that the two had worked closely together (…and most probably still do).

* Obama assured us that his stimulus bill would create or save a million jobs; but he was claiming as fact what could never have been more than a wild (and highly improbable) guess, and his more recent attempts to justify that guess have been fraudulent.

* Obama assured us that his health plan would never ration care, or “pull the plug” on grandma; but the legislation he backs sets up panels to make crucial decisions on when to withhold care, and it makes such deep cuts in Medicare that rationing is inevitable.

* Obama now assures us that health insurance premiums will not go up if ObamaCare becomes law, insisting indignantly that people who say this have not read the bill; but the legislation forces insurers to cover preexisti! ng conditions, which will compel them to raise premiums substa! ntially.

There is nothing Normal...

Keeping awake while Obama sings his Marxist Lullabye
from The Betrayal by David-Crockett


Distressing as the latest news of McCain’s co-opting Senator Scott Brown and even Sarah Palin into Amnesty is, the biggest danger for America is allowing Obama to “normalize” his obsessive agenda for the United States of America.

There is nothing “normal” about wanting to transform America into a Socialist state.

There is nothing “normal” about community organizer Chicago street activists shutting the door on American sovereignty as soon as they arrived at the White House as President and First Lady.

There is nothing “normal” about a president and First Lady who hate America.

There is nothing “normal” about people who go so far out of their way to hide their pasts.

Obama is trying to distract patriots when he compares what happened Tuesday night in Massachusetts to his own election on Nov. 4, 2008.

Both before and after Lt. Col. Scott Brown’s arrival in Washington, Obama was bad news in action for the United States of America and what is left of the Free World.

To be clear Barack Hussein Obama is not just another Jimmy Carter, he is an unflinching ideologue who will use anything at his disposal to get what he wants: a broken America forced to worship at the hideous altar of Socialism.

Marxists seethe on the inside and show a deceitful charm to those who stand in their way long enough to get their way!

There is a warning in the reply to the comment of a Michigan woman included in the comments of former Marine and Canada Free Press (CFP) columnist Jerry McConnell today: “The Scott Brown victory was a very needed boost to the morale of those who love America and want to keep her free! God should get the glory, he heard our prayers,” the Michigan commenter wrote.

“Like you I thought the Scott Brown victory was a prayer answered, and really it was; but two days later I wondered if he was all that I thought him to be,” McConnell responded. “He has sided with the RINO John McCain and is now going soft on amnesty; I’m sure at McCain’s urging.

“But even more discouraging news came from Sarah Palin yesterday when even SHE agreed to campaign for RINO McCain and said she supported McCain’s views on amnesty for the illegal aliens.

“McCain sweet-talks people telling them how beneficial “bipartisanship” is for the country; and in reality, if it could be done I would have to agree. But to the liberal Democrats the word bipartisanship means only: “Do it my way” and if you disagree with what they want, you are not being “bipartisan”. What a bunch of baloney.

“So those two revelations in addition to an earlier report that Rupert Murdoch, the Fox News biggie, is about to enter into an agreement with one of the Saudi princes that can only mean more concessions to radical Islamism.

“What promised to be a week of big celebrations has turned into a depressing turn of events. I am hoping that the Tea Partiers can come up with something to counteract all these bad news items. I guess I’ll have to pray a little harder from now on.”

While praying, we should all keep our eye on The One who, just as Saul Alinsky advises, works so hard to keep us all demoralized and distracted.

What could be better for a deceitful Marxist than patriots let down by their own folk hero leaders?

As some of our “conservatives” put their egos ahead of the people, it will be more important than ever to remember that it was the independents more than the card-carrying Repubs (RINOS) who gave us proof in the Massachusetts Miracle that main-street America rejects Obama.

Obama's Eligibility Questioned

While numerous opposition commenters here at The Right Side of Life like to continually pronounce the continued questions of Mr. Obama’s eligibility as dead, the Democrats continue to bring up the “birthers” as a means to… score political points?

Prof. Jacobson at LegalInsurrection points out that it’s not working:

What would one call a political strategy which depended upon portraying the majority of Americans as crazy extremists? The answer is: The current Democratic Party strategy which ignores the meaning of the Virginia, New Jersey and Massachusetts races, and focuses on smearing opponents as extremists and “Birthers.”

We saw this template throughout the summer as the public protested against the Democratic health care plans. Peaceful protesters were called terrorists and facists, and falsely accused of fomenting violence.

We saw this template again in the Scott Brown campaign, when prominent left-wing bloggers such as Steve Benen pushed the demonstrably false story that Scott Brown was a “Birther.”

Now Benen is pushing hard for this sort of rhetoric to become a focus of Democratic efforts to stem the tide of electoral upsets. …

Commenter “Sallyven” posted the following exquisite synopsis of exactly where many of us logically go with the questions brought up by this President’s shrouded past:

There are many “birthers” who aren’t even questioning whether or not Obama was born in Hawaii, and don’t care whether the long-form certificate is released or not.

There is no “conspiracy” theory, rather they are “originalists” or “Constitutionalists” in that they believe that the “natural born citizen” clause of Article 2 of the Constitution means a pure, naturally-attained citizenship, which would preclude dual citizenship.

Obama’s father was not an immigrant. He was never a US citizen. He was Kenyan and a British citizen, and Obama’s own Fight the Smears campaign website admitted that Obama junior was also a British citizen when he was born. He did not have “pure US Citizenship” at birth.

Without even going into the various documents and cases that support a definition of “natural born citizen” meaning born in the country to US citizen parents, it would be hard to imagine that the founding fathers would ever have thought that a British citizen (other than themselves, who actually fought in the Revolution, and were “grandfathered” in the clause in Article 2) would ever be allowed to hold the title of Commander in Chief. I imagine they are now rolling in their graves.

It is also interesting to note that those who questioned McCain’s natural born citizenship (because he was born in Panama, even though to two US citizen parents), were not labeled as “birthers.” Only those who question whether Obama, who although born on US soil, had a foreign father, lived abroad for a number of years, and perhaps traveled with a foreign passport, combined with the knowledge that we have never had a US President (knowingly, that is—Chester Arthur was recently discovered to be an exception), who was not “grandfathered” or born on US soil, to two parents who were US citizens at the time of his birth.

To label these “birthers” as extremists is quite a stretch. Personally, I would consider those who desire to closely follow the Constitution, “patriots.”

Lead Plaintiff , Kerchner v Obama & Congress

I Believe The Fix Was In for the 2008 Election and The Cover Up is Still Going Strong!

Constitution(Jan. 24, 2010) — I believe that the RNC and DNC at the highest levels in 2008 were both complicit in shutting down all discussion of Obama’s eligibility issue in the Congress, Main Stream Media, Print Press, and in the leading conservative Talk Show radio stations. I believe that the RNC and the DNC were complicit in subverting Article II, Section I, Clause 5 of our Constitution as to the eligibility requirements for the Office of the President, i.e., the person eligible for that office must be a “natural born Citizen“, i.e., one born in the country to parents who are both citizens of the country such that the child born has singular and sole allegiance at birth to the USA and no citizenship at birth with any other country via his parents or due to the place or location of birth.

A natural born Citizen needs no law or resolution of Congress to give or clarify citizenship status. Natural born Citizenship status can only be obtained by the facts of nature at the child’s birth. This is natural law. This is what the founders and framers of our Constitution required for the singular and most powerful office of the President and Commander in Chief of the military.

John Jay and George Washington put that requirement into the Constitution for exactly the reason that the person serving in that office would have no foreign influences on him/her at birth due to the facts and circumstances of his/her citizenship at birth. Only “natural born Citizenship” in the USA per natural law guarantees no other allegiance or citizenship claims by an another country at birth. If you are born on the U.S. soil of parents who are both citizens, no other country can claim you as a Citizen of their country and you are only governed by the laws of the USA at your birth.

This is natural law as written by Vattel in 1758 in his legal book, “The Law of Nations or Principles of Natural Law“. The 1775 edition of this legal book was used as a reference by Benjamin Franklin and other founders to set up our new nation in 1776 in the writing of the Declaration of Independence and also in drafting the new form of federal government in 1789 and the writing of our Constitution, the fundamental law of our nation. Obama was born British. How can a person be born a British Subject be considered to be a “natural born Citizen” of the USA, to constitutional standards? He cannot. Our founders must be rolling over in their graves witnessing what transpired in the 2008 election cycle.

Both parties put up questionable candidates in 2008 as to their birth citizenship, Obama was born as a British Subject and McCain was born in Panama, and then they proceeded to cover up for each other and helped shut down the media and talk radio totally via their respective high contacts in the media industry and elected officials within the sitting Bush administration and in Congress as well as within their own respective presidential campaign organizations. No one in either political party wanted a free and open debate in the media as to the true historical, constitutional, and Supreme Court common law cases mentioning Vattel and his words on the meaning of “natural born Citizen”. No one in either political party wanted a full Congressional hearing about the true meaning of Article II of the U.S. Constitution concerning and who is eligible to be President and Commander in Chief of the military, especially in the case of Obama whose father was not even an immigrant to this country, let alone a citizen.

We are a nation of immigrants. But Obama’s father was never one. The political parties and powers in DC wanted to hide this issue from the American people for the political ambition and power of both political parties to run the candidate of their choice irrespective of Constitutional issues. They did not want to hear from the People about this. So the cover up began to squelch all discussion of it to keep as many people in the dark as possible. “Thou shalt not talk about the presidential constitutional Article II eligibility issues ” was the word put out by all the powers to be in Washington DC and the USA media. It was reported that even outright threats were made to certain conservative talk show radio hosts in the last quarter of 2008.

And it continues to this day, imo, and is most obvious with the stone silence and “cone of silence” and occasional mocking comments made by the talk show hosts about the eligibility issue questions if mentioned briefly by a guest now and then on Fox News. The approach on Fox News is to ban the topic.

Other networks such as MSNBC simply mock the movement continually using Saul Alinsky’s tactics from Rules for Radicals rule number 5, ridicule, to stifle all open, serious, and public debate on the issue and to scare off any one in political power from broaching the subject. Anyone even just mentioning this issue is pounced on for the ridicule treatment by the press.

This shut down of a free and full “on air” debate of the Obama eligibility issue with serious scholars and legal experts representing each side (such as my attorney, Mario Apuzzo) being allowed on the air together with someone from the Obot side to debate this issue openly is being orchestrated at the highest levels of the RNC and DNC and their elected official type contacts in various powerful positions both today and back in Dec 2008 and early Jan 2009. Whispers in the hallways allude to grave consequences if one breaches this subject seriously on the air ways.

The RNC silenced opposition in the conservative talk show radio and elsewhere in late 2008 which has enabled Obama to take power virtually unopposed as to addressing his constitutional eligibility in any serious manner in public debate via the national media. The leadership of the RNC at the highest levels, imo, shut down members of their own political party in Congress and via using their contacts in the highest levels of government, they helped shut down conservative talk radio and TV hosts with innuendos and and whispers of the consequences if this subject surfaced for discussion in a major way on their shows. They were told to keep the eligibility issue and the so called “Birthers” banned on their callers list with special instructions to the call screeners to keep them off the air. The RNC powers to be and their political connections used their power to do this to cover up their own subverting of Article II of the Constitution via putting up a candidate of their own with questionable natural born Citizenship status as their candidate for President. The big liberal media anointed Obama (a hard core progressive and Socialist) and then anointed McCain (a progressive light) because they knew McCain had a citizenship issue of his own and thus would keep him silent about Obama’s. And it worked. A “cone of silence” was dropped on the eligibility issue in the DC media and Congress and elsewhere in American to cover up for what both parties were doing, subverting Article II of the U.S. Constitution in the 2008 election. Listen to this radio show interview for more details.

Atty Apuzzo & CDR Kerchner on Andrea Shea King Radio Show hosted by Andrea Shea King – Friday, 22 Jan 2010, 9 p.m. EST:

Imo, when this subversion of our Constitution in the 2008 election cycle and the massive cover up by people in the highest levels of the RNC and DNC and their elected official contacts, and our government is exposed, this will be a far worse scandal than Watergate. It will be the worst scandal & political crisis and constitutional crisis in America since the Civil War. Who will win the Pulitzer Prize for exposing this travesty to the Constitution, liberty, and justice in America.

I believe this is what has happened in America and the reason for the cone of silence about Obama’s citizenship issues since the start of the 2008 election cycle and it continues to this day. It is a national disgrace and a threat to our freedom and liberty and the survival of our Constitution and Republic. We do not know Obama’s true legal identity. He has hidden and sealed all his early life records. What is he hiding? How can we trust this man usurping the Oval Office to protect America from foreign influence at the highest levels. He bows to Saudi Kings! He backs far-left dictators in Central America like Castro and Hugo Chavez in stifling freedom and Constitutional government in Honduras. Maybe he saw what could happen to him in the Constitutional crisis down there. Who is Obama loyal too? We do not know who he really is. The eligibility issue must be fully and openly discussed in the Main Stream Media, the Congress, and in our Courts. Our liberty and freedom is in the balance.

God bless and protect America in the coming test this year of our fundamental core constitutional rights and our very freedom as this cover up is further exposed.

Hawaii launches defense to Obama birth queries

Posts ‘vital records’ Web page saying responses ‘not’ required
By Bob Unruh
© 2010 WorldNetDaily

It could be that the state of Hawaii is overwhelmed by – or is just annoyed at – the number of inquiries about the birth records of President Obama.

The state has launched a new Web page with the information it wants the public to know about its Obama records, including the fact that state law does not “require agencies to respond to all questions asked of the agency.”

After all, a new poll confirms just 51 percent of Americans believe Obama eligible for the office he now holds.

The recent WND/Wenzel Poll indicated 32.6 percent of Americans said they do not consider Obama a “legitimate” president and another 15.8 percent said they were unsure. The poll updated a survey six months ago in which most Americans said they were aware of the dispute.

The Hawaiian records make up the core of the issue over challenges to Obama’s eligibility, since an original long-form birth certificate including the name of the doctor, the hospital and other details, presumably could document whether he qualifies to occupy the Oval Office under the U.S. Constitution’s requirement the president be a “natural born citizen.”

See the movie Obama does not want you to see: Own the DVD that probes this unprecedented presidential eligibility mystery.

WND has reported on dozens of legal challenges to Obama’s status as a “natural born citizen.” The Constitution, Article 2, Section 1, states, “No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President.”

Some of the lawsuits question whether he was actually born in Hawaii, as he insists. If he was born out of the country, Obama’s American mother, the suits contend, was too young at the time of his birth to confer American citizenship to her son under the law at the time.

Other challenges have focused on Obama’s citizenship through his father, a Kenyan subject to the jurisdiction of the United Kingdom at the time of his birth, thus making him a dual citizen. The cases contend the framers of the Constitution excluded dual citizens from qualifying as natural born.

Complicating the situation is Obama’s decision to spend sums estimated over $1 million to avoid releasing an original long-form state birth certificate that would put to rest the questions.

WND also has reported that among the documentation not yet available for Obama includes his kindergarten records, Punahou school records, Occidental College records, Columbia University records, Columbia thesis, Harvard Law School records, Harvard Law Review articles, scholarly articles from the University of Chicago, passport, medical records, files from his years as an Illinois state senator, his Illinois State Bar Association records, any baptism records and his adoption records.

Hawaii’s new web page states state law requires government records to be open to public inspection “unless access is restricted or closed by law.”

“The [Uniform Information Practices Act] does not require an agency to provide access to government records that state law protects from disclosure … nor does it require to respond to all questions asked of the agency.”

The Web page also issues several warnings. “Unless a request for DOH records is specific enough to be understood, the request cannot be responded to by the DOH,” it states.

Further, “The DOH may not have a record which is responsive to a request. The UIPA does not require an agency to compile or create information to respond to a request,” it says.

State officials did not respond to WND questions about the information on the page.

But it appears unlikely a website statement will defuse the controversy.

At the time of the election, the state’s director of health, Chiyome Fukino, said:

“There have been numerous requests for Sen. Barack Hussein Obama’s official birth certificate. State law (Hawaii Revised Statutes §338-18) prohibits the release of a certified birth certificate to persons who do not have a tangible interest in the vital record.

“Therefore, I as Director of Health for the State of Hawai’i, along with the Registrar of Vital Statistics who has statutory authority to oversee and maintain these type of vital records, have personally seen and verified that the Hawaii State Department of Health has Sen. Obama’s original birth certificate on record in accordance with state policies and procedures.

“No state official, including Governor Linda Lingle, has ever instructed that this vital record be handled in a manner different from any other vital record in the possession of the State of Hawaii.”

Months later she added another comment:

“I, Dr. Chiyome Fukino, Director of the Hawaii State Department of Health, have seen the original vital records maintained on file by the Hawaii State Department of Health verifying Barack Hussein Obama was born in Hawaii and is a natural-born American. I have nothing further to add to this statement or my original statement issued in October 2008 over eight months ago.”

But even those statements have since been cited as a reason that state officials owe the public more information.

At one point, Leo Donofrio, who brought one of the first legal challenges to Obama’s eligibility to be president and unsuccessfully tried to get the U.S. Supreme Court to get involved at the time of the election, said Hawaii’s laws require disclosure of information “collected and maintained for the purpose of making information available to the general public.”

He and several other Obama critics raised the suggestion that if a birth certificate was used to support Fukino’s statements, the record itself should be public.

The Hawaiian web page primarily links to the rules and regulations the state is using in defense of its decision not to release definitive information.

Under the state’s law addressing records, exceptions are made for government records that would “constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy.” Also exempted are various records regarding prosecutions and certain court papers.

But the page explains any disclosure “shall not constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal private if the public interest in disclosure outweighs the privacy interests of the individual.”

Department spokesman Janice Okubo previously told WND the laws have been interpreted to leave birth documentation exempted from public disclosure. But she admitted the law allows a challenge to such decisions in the courts.

In fact, the law states, “A person aggrieved by a denial of access to a government record may bring an action against the agency at any time within two years after the agency denial to compel disclosure. … The circuit court may examine the government record at issue, in camera, to assist in determining whether it, or any part of it, may be withheld.”

WND also has reported suggestions from Hawaii state Sen. Will Espero, a Democrat, that legislation could be adopted to release Obama’s birth records and satisfy critics.

Espero told WND at the time his idea would be aimed at “giving citizens access to birth records” under a standard of government transparency which would permit journalists to request in writing the public disclosure of vital birth records, including long-form birth certificates of all persons born in Hawaii.

“My decision to file the legislation was primarily a result of the fuss over President Obama’s birth records and the lingering questions,” Espero said.

Espero told WND he believes President Obama was born in Hawaii.

“My motivation is strictly to promote transparency,” he said. “When I found out that Hawaii birth records were not available to the public my first thought was, ‘Why wouldn’t they be available to the public?’ As far as I am concerned, records regarding whether a person was born here or not should be in the public domain.”

Another major question remaining is why a birth location for the president hasn’t yet been celebrated.

WND founder and editor Joseph Farah has offered a $15,000 donation to the hospital listed on Obama’s long-form birth certificate.

“All he or the hospital or the state of Hawaii would have to do to claim the prize is show the American public the document that should have been produced long ago to claim the presidency as a natural born citizen,” he wrote earlier this month.

“Think about it. Obama claims to have been born in Honolulu Aug. 4, 1961. His entire constitutional claim to the presidency rests on this premise. Yet, he refuses to release a copy of his long-form birth certificate – the only document that could possibly corroborate his claim. Instead, he has released to select news organizations and posted on the Internet a document that could never serve as proof he was born in the United States – a so-called ‘certification of live birth,’ a digital document that could, can and has been obtained by people who were actually born outside the country. The American people can never be certain their president is legitimate constitutionally without proof,” he continued.

Why O’Reilly, Beck, etal. ridicule “the Birthers”
from The Betrayal by David-Crockett

Political Analysis by Neil Sankey, © 2010

(Jan 24, 2010) — First let’s consider some quotes to understand better relevance of Alinsky in contemporary Politics.

Rules for Radicals, Saul David Alinsky, 1971: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. It is almost impossible to counterattack ridicule. Also, it infuriates the opposition, who then react to your advantage.”

Letter from L. David Alinsky, son of Neo-Marxist Saul Alinsky: “Obama learned his lesson well. I am proud to see that my father’s model for organizing is being applied successfully beyond local community organizing to affect the Democratic campaign in 2008. It is a fine tribute to Saul Alinsky as we approach his 100th birthday.”

Hillary, Obama and the Cult of Alinsky: “True revolutionaries do not flaunt their radicalism, Alinsky taught. They cut their hair, put on suits and infiltrate the system from within. Alinsky viewed revolution as a slow, patient process. The trick was to penetrate existing institutions such as churches, unions and political parties…. Many leftists view Hillary as a sell-out because she claims to hold moderate views on some issues. However, Hillary is simply following Alinsky’s counsel to do and say whatever it takes to gain power.

Richard Poe (11-27-07): “Barack Obama is also an Alinskyite…. Obama spent years teaching workshops on the Alinsky method. In 1985 he began a four-year stint as a community organizer in Chicago, working for an Alinskyite group called the Developing Communities Project…. Camouflage is key to Alinsky-style organizing. While trying to build coalitions of black churches in Chicago, Obama caught flak for not attending church himself. He became an instant churchgoer.”

Let us try to understand what went wrong here. I am daily struggling with facts that are very apparent, yet amazing and very hard to believe. It is very difficult to believe that you have been duped and misled for most of your adult life, and yet that is one of the basic facts that many people of the world, especially the USA and the United Kingdom will have to come to terms with, if they are to maintain or regain their respective identities.

Our good nature, our generosity and our love of freedom has been hi-jacked and subverted by the Communist / Marxist / extremist thirst for total power and world domination. And we were fooled, totally taken in, duped and subverted, both true Democrats and Republicans alike. We see examples of this indoctrination on Television daily.

Bill O’Reilly, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Anne Coulter, the list goes on. Conservative, Republicans, Independents? debatable, but one thing is certain, if you mention the “Birthers” or “Eligibility,” they will burst into uncontrollable laughter and derision, getting off the subject just as soon as they are able. “Why, aren’t we all on the same side?” you ask. The answer is simple: It is because these well known media pundits have allowed themselves to become, despite their “Right wing” reputations, Marxist puppets, responding as they (we) have been conditioned, for most of our lives, to respond.
O’Reilly and Beck, etc., “MARXIST PUPPETS?

How ridiculous”? But, these pundits, these same TV personalities have done us, the public, a major disservice in not keeping up, not reading and educating themselves enough to recognize the traps that had been set for them, and which they willingly tumbled into at Obama’s behest. They have allowed themselves to be used, intending to defeat the Birthers. Just like the Press!

Yes, what you have seen and heard hundreds of times in the past couple of years is nothing more than Pundits and the people reacting how they have been trained and conditioned to react by the students of Saul David Alinsky. Alinsky, the man and the name, is barely known to the greater majority of Americans. This man must now be exposed for what he was, if America is to survive. It is important now to be able to recognize and identify his methods and principles if we are to negate those methods and understand the pressures being thrust upon us.

You may deride the “Birthers,” but one thing is certain, if we were able to remove the person who purports to be President, and negate the almost irreparable damage he has wrought on our Country, we would all breathe a collective sigh of relief and at least have the opportunity to “Get it right next time.” His “Eligibility” could arguably offer such an opportunity, it could very well save America as we know it.
The Long Term Strategy of Alinsky

First we must understand how we got in this mess. To do that, we have to know the man and be aware of the strategies of Saul David Alinsky.

Through the machinations of Barack Hussein Obama and his “friends”, Alinsky’s methods are currently dangerously close to changing America for ever. Alinsky did not invent the “Dogma”, he strategized it, he “Organized” it. However, in the Alinsky model it is important to remember that “Organizing” is a euphemism for “REVOLUTION”

Saul David Alinsky was born to Benjamin and Sarah (Tannenbaum) Alinsky on January 30, 1909 in Chicago. His parents were Russian-Jewish immigrants. When Alinsky was 13 years of age, his parents were divorced. After his parents split up, Alinsky went to Los Angles with his father and lived there. Later, he came back to Chicago and pursued his studies at the University of Chicago. He went on to acquire a doctorate in archeology from the university in 1930. Archeology was not needed in Chicago in those days and he became involved with the study of Criminology. In 1931 he went to work as a sociologist for the Illinois Division of Juvenile Research while also serving at the Institute for Criminal Research and the Illinois Prison Board. In 1936 Alinsky left his positions with the state agencies to cofound the Back-of-the-Yards Neighborhood Council. This was his first effort to build a neighborhood citizen reform group, a form of activity which would earn Alinsky a reputation as a radical reformer. Known as a “Fellow-Traveler” (Communist), he always insisted that he never did became a member of the Communist Party, but he did develop the tactics of “Confrontation and Infiltration” and began to develop his radical rules for “Community Organizing” He also, interestingly became close friends with many prominent leaders of the Chicago Mob, particularly Al Capone and his gang. A close friend, who he admitted, “Taught him much”, was Frank Nitti, Capone’s second in command. (Chicago machine? – all too familiar!)

Alinsky went on to establish his very specific set of rules which his followers could adopt to gain power over the masses. These “Rules” are now readily recognizable in American behavior, particularly in Politics, over the past two or three years. These rules are described, as follows, in an excellent article entitled Saul Alinsky and DNC Corruption, written and published in 2003 by Diane Alden.
Alinsky’s rules

* “Wherever possible go outside the experience of the enemy. Here you want to cause confusion, fear and retreat.”

* “Make the enemy live up to his/her own book of rules. You can kill them with this. They can no more obey their own rules than the Christian church can live up to Christianity.”

* Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. It is almost impossible to counterattack ridicule. Also, it infuriates the opposition, who then react to your advantage.”

* “The threat is generally more terrifying than the thing itself.”

* “In a fight almost anything goes. It almost reaches the point where you stop to apologize if a chance blow lands above the belt.”

* “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it and polarize it.” (Think Gingrich, Lott and the success of name-calling used by the likes of Bill Clinton, Paul Begala, James Carville, Maxine Waters and others against conservatives and Republicans.

* “One of the criteria for picking the target is the target’s vulnerability … the other important point in the choosing of a target is that it must be a personification, not something general and abstract.” (Trent Lott comes to mind. Meanwhile, a former Klansman by the name of Sen. Robert Byrd got away with saying “nigger” on Fox News at least three times, and he still maintains his Senate seat and power.)
* “The enemy properly goaded and guided in his reaction will be your major strength.”

For instance, Democrats imply conservatives are racists or that Republicans want to kill senior citizens by limiting the growth of the Medicare system, they imply Republicans want to deny kids lunch money without offering real proof. These red-herring tactics work.

The revolution has not been dramatic, or swift, but has followed many, many years of careful preparation, infiltration and penetration of Churches, Unions, Judiciary and of course the Press and Media. They have subtly and surely drained the power and authority from the decision making processes by corrupting those entities. These are precisely the tactics advocated by Lenin and Stalin.

In 1971 Alinsky published his third book, Rules for Radicals: A Political Primer for Practical Radicals, in which set out his basic ideas concerning neighborhood reform. A year later, on June 12, 1972, he died of a heart attack near his home in Carmel, California.

There is no doubt that Alinsky was a devoted and dangerous Marxist, he was described as “Charming and self absorbed, always the center of attraction, narcissistic and maintaining a scholarly, academic appearance. ” (Remind you of anyone?)

Orly Taitz seeks support for political Campaign
from The Betrayal by David-Crockett

The Post & Email

by John Charlton
© 2009/2010

(Jan. 25, 2010) — Dr. Orly Taitz, Esq., arguably the most famous personality of the popular movement seeking to remove Obama from office on the grounds that he is ineligible constitutionally, has announced her interest in preparing to campaign for political office.

Lead counsel in the case Barnett et al. vs. Obama et al., Taitz entered the public forum last year with her representation of Ambassador Alan Keyes, Gail Lightfoot and others on the California ballot, who sued Deborah Bowen, the California Secretary of State, regarding the admission of Obama to the ballot.

Taitz gained national fame for her defense of Major Stefan F. Cook in the Federal Court of Columbus, GA, when the latter sought an injunction to prevent his deployment to Iraq pending the discovery of documents which would determine Obama’s citizenship status.

Known as feisty, determined, and a patriotic fighter, Dr. Taitz’s entry into politics is expected to draw wide support on account of her crisp and clear reputation for loyalty to the U.S. Constitution and interest in upholding the public trust for the sake of guarding the rights of citizens from all walks of life.

Taitz’s personal story, as an immigrant of Jewish ancestry from the former Soviet Republic of Moldavia, gives her a rich background to connect politically with Americans of all backgrounds who value liberty and the values which have made the United States of America what She is.

You can read Dr. Taitz’s announcement regarding her interest in running for office at her website. Taitz is seeking to raise the very modest sum of $3,000 to set up a campaign; a campaign manager, and feedback from supporters as to success of the proposal.

[David Crockett Notice: Dr. Taitz’s site is currently infected, those commie hackers were at it again]

It seems that if Orly Taitz ran for California Secretary of State, she would garner the greatest financial support, since it is obvious that if she won that office, Obama would never be elected president again. Her campaign for such an office, therefore, would garner the support all those wishing to rid the country of Obama.

Mass. rebellion! Republican Brown defeats Coakley for ‘Kennedy’s seat’
By Michael Carl
© 2010 WorldNetDaily

BOSTON – Republican Scott Brown, who waged a late surge in Massachusetts to battle President Barack Obama’s agenda head on, tonight captured the Senate seat held for more than four decades by the late Sen. Ted Kennedy.

In what is Obama’s worst nightmare ever, the upstart whose chances were rated between thin and none just over a month ago defeated the Democrat Party’s hand-picked Kennedy successor, state Attorney General Martha Coakley.

“I’ll bet they can hear this cheering all the way in Washington, D.C.,” Brown told his rallying supporters. “I hope they’re paying close attention because tonight the independent voice of Massachusetts has spoken.”

“The voters of this commonwealth, the independent majority, have delivered a great victory,” he said.

The Massachusetts miracle is just the beginning. Get “The Audacity of Deceit,” and learn how to stop the looming hostile attack on Judeo-Christian values and freedoms Americans hold dear

“Every day I hold this office I will give all that is in me to serve you and make you proud. Most of all I will remember that while the honor is mine, this Senate seat belongs to no one person, no political party … this is the people’s seat,” Brown said.

“I’m ready to go to Washington without delay,” he said.

Brown also noted he’d talked with Paul Kirk, “who has completed his work as interim senator.”

“Kirk says he will help us in the transition and we’ll meet him in Washington soon,” Brown said.

With 100 percent of the vote in, Brown had 52 percent to 47 percent for Coakley, who was thought to be a shoo-in as late as a month ago.

She conceded in a telephone call late in the evening.

“If you do not run you cannot win and you don’t always win all of the time,” Coakley told her supporters. “It’s more important to travel than to arrive. We will continue to travel, hopefully. I know that.”

“I am heartbroken at the results (but) I always respect the voters’ choices. That’s what I told Scott Brown tonight,” she said.

“This is a tidal wave that’s sweeping the country, telling politicians in Washington the status quo is not acceptable,” 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin told Fox News. “This is a step toward taking our country back.”

“This is monumental. This is epic,” said former Massachusets Gov. Mitt Romney. “This is the people of Massachusets telling Obama they’ve had enough of him.”

“It is a revolution,” said Fox News analyst Stuart Varney. “Health care is dead. Cap and trade is dead.”

On Wall Street today, investors sent health-insurance and drug-company shares higher, on the prospect a Brown win would slow Obama’s health-care agenda.

Brown also didn’t even wait until he reached Washington to put Democrats on notice that their 60-vote dominance in the Senate was over, addressing the issue of health care reform.

“It’s going to raise taxes and cost jobs. It’s doing to do irreparable harm to our economy and I know we can do better,” Brown said. “I will work with Democrats and Republicans and pledge no more closed meetings and the business has to be open. Again, we can do better.”

“I will work with the Senate to create jobs. And as John F. Kennedy said, ‘It starts with across the board tax cuts to put more money in the pockets of the people’,” he continued. “I will work to keep our military second to none. I’m a 30-year member of the Massachusetts National Guard, so I will keep faith with those who serve.”

He also confronted President Obama’s plans to put terrorists on trial in New York City.

“We don’t grant rights and privileges to enemies in wartime. The message we send to terrorists is that our tax dollars should pay for weapons to stop them, not lawyers to defend them,” he said. “Giving rights to terrorists is unacceptable.”

According to a statement from the White House, Obama “spoke to both candidates in the hard-fought Massachusetts Senate race. The president congratulated Sen. Brown on his victory and a well-run campaign. The president told Sen. Brown that he looks forward to working with him on the urgent economic challenges facing Massachusetts families and struggling families across our nation.”

Scott Brown’s brother, Bruce, lives in neighboring Connecticut, and said his brother is on the cutting edge of history.

“This is great. He’s making history and he’ll be able to live up to every promise he’s made. That’s the kind of man he is. He is trustworthy and takes seriously the charge that this is the people’s seat,” he said.

“This is going to be the most significant special election in modern American history if Scott Brown wins,” Larry Sabato, director of the University of Virginia Center for Politics, had said hours before polls closed. He predicted a Brown win would buoy every other “long-shot” Republican candidate in the country and add fuel to the party’s momentum going into the midterms this fall.

It also poses challenges immediately to Obama’s highest-priority agenda items, not the least of which is health care reform. Brown’s victory breaks the Democrats’ 60-vote, filibuster-proof majority.

How unlikely was this vote?

Though Republicans have occasionally been a political force in state politics, Massachusetts voters have not sent a Republican to represent them in the U.S. Senate since 1972. Every member of the state delegation currently in Washington is a Democrat. Democrats also outnumber Republicans 3-to-1 in the state – 37 percent of registered voters are Democrats, 12 percent are Republicans and 51 percent are unaffiliated. Obama won the state by 26 percentage points in the 2008 presidential election.

Kennedy, who died in August, held his Senate seat for 47 years.

It was only weeks ago when Democrats also lost two gubernatorial races in which they had been expected to dominate. Democrat Jon Corzine was defeated by Republican challenger Chris Christie in New Jersey, traditionally a Democratic state, despite outspending Christie 2-to-1 and campaigning prominently with Obama.

The other significant setback came in Virginia, where former Attorney General Robert F. McDonnell, a Republican, defeated Democrat R. Creigh Deeds, finishing with a commanding 18-point margin. A social conservative, McDonnell ran on bread-and-butter pocketbook issues.

As prepared for delivery (hat tip KLO)

Thank you very much. I’ll bet they can hear all this cheering down in Washington, D.C.

And I hope they’re paying close attention, because tonight the independent voice of Massachusetts has spoken.

From the Berkshires to Boston, from Springfield to Cape Cod, the voters of this Commonwealth defied the odds and the experts. And tonight, the independent majority has delivered a great victory.

I thank the people of Massachusetts for electing me as your next United States senator.

Every day I hold this office, I will give all that is in me to serve you well and make you proud.

Most of all, I will remember that while the honor is mine, this Senate seat belongs to no one person and no political party - and as I have said before, and you said loud and clear today, it is the people’s seat.

Interim Senator Paul Kirk has completed his work as a senator by appointment of the governor, and for the work he has done, I thank him. The people, by their votes, have now filled the office themselves, and I am ready to go to Washington without delay.

I also want to thank Martha Coakley for her call of congratulations. A hard contest is now behind us, and now we must come together as a Commonwealth.

This special election came about because we lost someone very dear to Massachusetts, and to America. Senator Ted Kennedy was a tireless and big-hearted public servant, and for most of my lifetime was a force like no other in this state. His name will always command the affection and respect by the people of Massachusetts, and the same goes for his wife Vicki. There’s no replacing a man like that, but tonight I honor his memory, and I pledge my very best to be a worthy successor.

I said at the very beginning, when I sat down at the dinner table with my family, that win or lose we would run a race which would make us all proud. I kept my word and we ran a clean, issues oriented, upbeat campaign - and I wouldn’t trade that for anything.

When I first started running, I asked for a lot of help, because I knew it was going to be me against the machine. I was wrong, it was all of us against the machine. And after tonight we have shown everyone that - now - you are the machine.

I’m glad my mom and dad, brothers, sisters, and so many family members are here tonight.

Once again, before I go any further, I want to introduce somebody very special… That is my wife, Gail.

And as you know, my wife Gail couldn’t join me on the campaign trail because of her work as a Boston TV journalist. But I will let you in on a little secret. She didn’t stay neutral today, and she voted for the winner. I rely as always, on Gail’s love and support and that of our beautiful daughters.

Arianna will be returning a day or two late to her pre-med studies at Syracuse, because she’s been giving her all to this campaign. As always, Arianna and her sister Ayla have been a joy to Gail and me, and we’re so grateful to them both. Even before her campaign performances, millions of Americans had already heard Ayla’s amazing voice on “American Idol.” As Boston College basketball fans know, she’s also pretty good on the court.

If the President thinks they’ve got basketball talent at the White House, I ask him to pick his best teammate and find some time to play two-on-two with Ayla and me.

I’m grateful to all those from across Massachusetts who came through for me even when I was a long shot. I especially thank a friend who was there with encouragement from the very beginning, and helped show us the way to victory - former Governor Mitt Romney.

I’ll never forget the help of another man who took the time to meet with me months ago - who told me I could win, and gave me confidence for the fight. It was all so characteristic of a truly great and heroic American, and tonight I thank my new colleague, Senator John McCain.

On a night like this, when so many people mark your name on a statewide ballot, you think back to the first people who gave you a chance and believed. For the trust they placed in me, and for all they have taught me, I thank my neighbors and friends in my Senate district and especially my hometown of Wrentham. The cause and victory that all America has seen tonight started right there with all of you.

Let me tell you when I first got the feeling something big was happening in this campaign. It was when I was driving along and spotted a handmade, Scott Brown yard sign that I hadn’t actually put there myself.

This little campaign of ours was destined for greater things than any of us knew, and the message went far beyond the name on the sign.

It all started with me, my truck, and a few dedicated volunteers. It ended with Air Force One making an emergency run to Logan. I didn’t mind when President Obama came here and criticized me - that happens in campaigns. But when he criticized my truck, that’s where I draw the line.

We had the machine scared and scrambling, and for them it is just the beginning of an election year filled with surprises. They will be challenged again and again across this country. When there’s trouble in Massachusetts, there’s trouble everywhere - and now they know it.

In every corner of our state, I met with people, looked them in the eye, shook their hand, and asked them for their vote. I didn’t worry about their party affiliation, and they didn’t worry about mine. It was simply shared conviction that brought us all together.

One thing is clear, voters do not want the trillion-dollar health care bill that is being forced on the American people.

This bill is not being debated openly and fairly. It will raise taxes, hurt Medicare, destroy jobs, and run our nation deeper into debt. It is not in the interest of our state or country - we can do better.

When in Washington, I will work in the Senate with Democrats and Republicans to reform health care in an open and honest way. No more closed-door meetings or back room deals by an out of touch party leadership. No more hiding costs, concealing taxes, collaborating with special interests, and leaving more trillions in debt for our children to pay.

In health care, we need to start fresh, work together, and do the job right. Once again, we can do better.

I will work in the Senate to put government back on the side of people who create jobs, and the millions of people who need jobs - and as President John F. Kennedy taught us, that starts with an across the board tax cut for individuals and businesses that will create jobs and stimulate the economy. It’s that simple!

I will work in the Senate to defend our nation’s interests and to keep our military second to none. As a lieutenant colonel and 30-year member of the Army National Guard, I will keep faith with all who serve, and get our veterans all the benefits they deserve.

And let me say this, with respect to those who wish to harm us, I believe that our Constitution and laws exist to protect this nation - they do not grant rights and privileges to enemies in wartime. In dealing with terrorists, our tax dollars should pay for weapons to stop them, not lawyers to defend them.

Raising taxes, taking over our health care, and giving new rights to terrorists is the wrong agenda for our country. What I’ve heard again and again on the campaign trail, is that our political leaders have grown aloof from the people, impatient with dissent, and comfortable in the back room making deals. And we can do better.

They thought you were on board with all of their ambitions. They thought they owned your vote. They thought they couldn’t lose. But tonight, you and you and you have set them straight.

Across this country, we are united by basic convictions that need only to be clearly stated to win a majority. If anyone still doubts that, in the election season just beginning, let them look to Massachusetts.

Fellow citizens, what happened in this election can happen all over America. We are witnesses, you and I, to the truth that ideals, hard work, and strength of heart can overcome any political machine. We ran a campaign never to be forgotten, and led a cause that deserved and received all that we could give it.

And now, because of your independence, and your trust, I will hold for a time the seat once filled by patriots from John Quincy Adams to John F. Kennedy and his brother Ted. As I proudly take up the duty you have given me, I promise to do my best for Massachusetts and America every time the roll is called.

I go to Washington as the representative of no faction or interest, answering only to my conscience and to the people. I’ve got a lot to learn in the Senate, but I know who I am and I know who I serve.

I’m Scott Brown,

I’m from Wrentham,

I drive a truck, and I am nobody’s senator but yours.

Thank you very much.

Now is the right time to publish by Joan Swirsky’s political analysis. SCOTT BROWN WON!!!!!!!

Political Analysis by Joan Swirsky
© 2009/2010

Scott Brown(Jan. 18, 2010) — When Scott Brown gallops to victory tomorrow, capturing the Massachusetts senate seat made absent by Sen. Ted Kennedy’s death, it will signal a definitive referendum against all things Obama – his onerous and discriminatory “healthcare” bill (which an overwhelming majority of Americans fear and loathe), his failing economy, his escalating unemployment rate, his out-of-control spending, his accumulating federal debt, and, in far broader terms, his socialist-cum-communist regime, including those self-described Marxists and Maoist czars who are trying to whiplash our country into Castro territory.

How did this happen? It happened because America is a good and great country. Our electorate – approximately 43 percent of the over-300-million people who bask every day in America’s largesse – saw a nice young black man campaign for the presidency in 2008 and gave him a chance in spite of serious doubts about his lifelong radical associations with anti-American, anti-white, and anti-Semitic friends, colleagues, political associates and his church, not to mention his embarrassing lack of experience and also the grave questions about his Constitutional eligibility to become president. For liberals it expiated the white guilt of slavery; for conservatives it was yet another example of America’s historical exceptionalism.

But it didn’t take long for the cold harsh reality of this nice young man’s radical agenda to set in and for Americans of every political stripe to recoil at:

* His irresistible compulsion to bow and scrape to foreign despots
* His serial apologies on foreign soil for big bad America’s sins
* His reflexively siding with racists like Harvard professor Skip Gates and the ACORN thugs
* His egregious flouting of the U.S. Constitution vis-à-vis the nearly 40 czars he has appointed to run our country, many of them admitted Communists and Maoists with extreme and frightening viewpoints. In fact, Laura Hollis writes quite persuasively, they are all Communists.
* His intrusive and damaging meddling in our banking, automotive, energy, and healthcare industries
* His doling out billions of dollars to foreign nations without Congressional approval
* His destructive manipulation of free markets
* His attempts to control the media and curb free speech, take away gun rights, and give our hard-earned tax dollars to terrorist nations
* His bizarre preference for significantly increasing visas for Islamic terror-sponsoring nations, as reported by Pamela Geller’s site, AtlasShrugs.

And this is the short list!

Then there is Obama’s schoolmarm finger-wagging to tell the rest of us not to jump to conclusions about the American-born Muslim terrorist who murdered 13 of our soldiers at Fort Hood; and his waiting three full days to speak out – with chilling iciness – about the Muslim terrorist who plotted nearly 300 mid-air deaths on Christmas, and then calling this savage an “alleged” extremist.

This kind of behavior does not sit well with Americans, who have increasingly doubted if Obama is an American at all or if he has even a micrometer of sensibility about what it means to be an American.

By now it seems clear that Obama is a surrogate for powers much smarter and more politically experienced than he. His almost pathological reliance on a teleprompter and his by-now predictable lapses in decision-making – even months when it came to increasing troop levels in Afghanistan – appear to be a function of his simply waiting it out until his bosses – Soros, Ayers, the Saudis, et al? – make up their minds.

Publisher and writer JR Dieckmann thinks he knows exactly who is calling the shots for Obama.”We have to look at who supported and funded the Obama campaign,” he says.

It is foreign investors. It’s the World Bank. It’s the IMF (International Monetary Fund). It’s the Federal Reserve Bank. It’s Ban Ki-moon and the UN. It is the European Union. It is the Skull & Bones Society and the Bilderberg group. It is even King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia and the Palestinians to some extent.

But the ideology that Obama subscribes to is global socialism and communism. He takes his cues from many different special interests that all share his Marxist ideology and desire for global socialism.

His objective is the same as the UN’s objective – global socialism and the destruction of capitalism and the American value system…I should also include the domestic components such as: SEIU, ACLU, the Soros-funded Apollo Foundation, the UAW and AFL-CIO, ACORN, AIG, Bear Sterns, etc. They are all part of the global socialist cabal and led by liberal Democrats.


The goal of Leftists like Obama is to deconstruct America, the better to reconstruct it into their utopian fantasy of a perfect world in which no one ever has hurt feelings, loses a ballgame, is unfavorably compared to anyone else, experiences the green-eyed monster of envy, is restrained by society’s mores, is burdened by adult decision-making, or encounters a conflict that cannot be resolved by “talk.”

And they believe that only Big Government – orchestrated by them, of course – can actualize the fantasy of running people’s lives from cradle to grave. To that end, they have tried for decades to improve society by doing the only thing they know how to do, which is to throw other people’s money at every problem. They are like those irritating children who never stop whining and complaining and demanding and clinging and throwing tantrums until exasperated adults finally give in and let them have their way.

As journalist and author Erik Rush elaborates upon, in speaking about the terrorist William Ayers and his pal Barack Obama, it is amazing that…

…that ilk are not laughed out of lecture halls for the profoundly juvenile temperament of their political philosophy. Indeed, though couched in intellectual trappings and mock sagacity, [their message] is little more than the expression of deep spitefulness and envy. The more I am exposed to the insipid, toxic mouthings of far-left icons, the more they come off like spoiled children who believe they have a right to what another child has simply because they desire it.

To them, Rush continues, it is all about,

…attaining power that they never could have attained in a reward-based system. Their rhetoric – preaching parity and equality while fomenting class envy – was just a device by which they obtained your cooperation; a selfish, schoolyard ruse employed to best another kid and take his stuff.

Indeed, the Leftist’s worldview is essentially that life is not fair because some people have more than others, and so it is incumbent upon the haves to treat the have-nots like, well, children! Don’t expect them to meet adult standards, to work, to sacrifice, to do well in school, to obey the law, to pay their mortgages and fair share of taxes, to weather disappointments, to fail and then try again. That hard stuff is for grown-ups, not for the perpetual victims the Left counts upon to keep them in office.


Just look at what liberals have done over the past many decades.

* They’ve thrown money at the welfare system, which ended up destroying mostly black families and exacerbating inequality.
* They’ve thrown money at education and dumbed-down curricula, but academic failure persisted and got worse.
* They’ve thrown money at housing until Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac imploded, but they’re still propping up this failed fiasco with billions of taxpayer dollars.
* They’ve enacted “fairness” laws to “level the playing field” in academia and the workplace, but women still earn less than men and men still win more Nobel Prizes in the sciences.
* They’ve even tried self-esteem-boosting schemes, exhorting people to praise themselves for being instead of doing.

After decades of abject failure, after every one of their schemes and plans and philosophies and policies failed, it was clear to all but the starry-eyed, hate-American liberals that they had no clue about improving society. Of course admitting to their history of colossal failure is unthinkable to them, actually psychologically impossible. To acknowledge that everything they’ve stood for and spent their lives believing in was just plain wrong – and dumb – has never been a part of their limited repertoire. To have done so would have been to admit that in spite of their bleeding-heart good intentions and touchy-feely embrace of multiculturalism and diversity, (1) life is inherently not fair and (2) some people and some cultures are simply more motivated, creative, productive, generous, and – gasp – superior to others!


In every election the Left wins – think of LBJ, Carter, Bill and Hill, and now Obama – these grown-ups who act like children prove to be incapable of managing economies and waging wars. Of course, they invariably attribute their failures to scapegoats and they cling ever more tenaciously to their core belief, which is that Communism (cloaked as the “compassionate” redistribution of wealth) is the only solution to the unfair vicissitudes of life and to a human condition that is inherently, genetically, endemically unequal.

Stealing whole chapters from Marx, Engels, Mao, Castro, and their ignominious ilk, they believe that freedom and success are for the elite few because the masses they claim to represent are too stupid to make decisions on their own.

But whaddaya know?! When Obama was in office only three months, “the sleeping giant” of America’s awareness (as one Tea Party participant phrased it) woke up to the monstrous intention of the Obama regime to destroy the middle class through draconian tax hikes vis-à-vis its cap-and-tax and healthcare schemes. As the Tea Party movement gained huge momentum – attracting multi-millions of Republicans, Democrats and Independents – the best that the liberal children in office and the media could do was call names, denigrate and insult. The net result: the Tea Parties gained in strength and numbers.

In the last “special” elections, two Republicans won governor races in Virginia and New Jersey. The net result: leftist politicians sped up their bribe-and-threat machine to try to ram and cram the healthcare bill down the throats of millions of unwilling Americans.

While the Tea Party movement and the stunning upsets in VA and NJ didn’t stop the runaway train of Obama’s destroy-America agenda, the Scott victory will. Goodbye to socialized medicine with its death panels and citizen-subsidized abortions. Goodbye to the Obama regime’s routine violations of the U.S. Constitution. Goodbye to the Fifth Column traitors who are sabotaging our country by coddling terrorists and prosecuting our heroic SEALS. Goodbye to the rigged elections in the upcoming midterms that the Democrats and their ACORN partners-in-crime count on to win.

And hello to real change we can believe in – the return of conservatism and, at least for me, insistence that all future candidates vow to REPEAL each and every piece of misguided legislation, presidential signing order, policy, et al, inflicted on our country by Barack Hussein Obama.

As writer Carol Platt Liebau has written:

Certainly, 2009 was a dark and disheartening year for lovers of economic and individual liberty. But if next year shapes up in accordance with current trends, the tide is about to change. With a growing recognition of the preciousness (and fragility) of liberty and a renewed appreciation of our founding principles, America is poised for a rebirth of freedom. Hail 2010: The Year of the Citizen.

help fight the media


January - The Moonbat Messiah was inaugurated before a crowd that made rude chants at the departing President Bush and completely and utterly trashed the National Mall. And that was just the news media. The Moonbat Messiah immediately began filling his cabinet with tax cheats, dirty lawyers, radical communists, and eugenicists. One of his first acts was to sign a $787 Billion "Stimulus" package that promised to restore the USA to economic prosperity by the fall.

February - Obama's EPA began laying the groundwork to declare all human activity subject to Government regulation, via the human capacity for CO2 production, which the EPA designated a deadly gas despite the fact that plants need it to survive. The right-wing began to make jokes about Obama's Teleprompter dependency. It would be eight months before the left would do the same.

March - The Green Left designated polar bears the official iconic megafauna of the Global Warming Hoax, using a picture of some bears on an ice floe to claim that the big white beasts were facing extinction (when, in the real world, their numbers are increasing.) Lady M'Chel put in an appearance at soup kitchen and showed off her $540 kicks. Obama also rewarded his friends in Hamas with $900 Million in taxpayer dollars to thank them for their incessant rocket attacks against Israel.

Oh, and Keith Olbermann pitched a snit fit when Ann Coulter revealed that his prized Cornell degree actually came from Cornell's cow college affiliate.

April - It was discovered the Global Warmists were lying about sea ice melting away. Obama sent Air Force 1 to buzz lower Manhattan, just for kicks and giggles. Benedict Arlen Specter made a principled decision to become a Democrat when polls showed he was cheese toast if he ran as a Republican. Also, the totally free market "don't you dare call them socialists" government of B. Hussein Obama completed the nationalization of General Motors, with the Government and their union allies owning 80% of the company after telling investors who had loaned the companies billions "Be gone, Running Dog parasites! The means of production belong to the workers now."

In response to the predations of the Obamunists, a round of tea-parties were held to correspond with April 15th tax day. Distinguished journalists like Anderson Cooper and Rachel Maddow giggled like fifth graders at the word "tea-bag."

May -- The Progressive Left focused its rage and scorn on a person who represented the most serious threat to the American way of life in all the 233 years of the Republic's existence. I refer, of course, to Carrie Prejean; who received the kind of treatment from the mainstream media Hitler might have gotten had he been caught throwing puppies into a wood chipper.

June -- It was discovered that the EPA was burying memos that said Global Warming wasn't actually happening, per se. Also, 62 year old "comedian" David Letterman took a break from molesting the interns in his Manhattan production company to make some rape jokes about Sarah Palin's daughters; because it's just so funny when 62 year old men make lecherous jokes about young teenage girls.

President Barack Obama demonstrated his administration's commitment to transparency and the rule of law by firing an Inspector General who was investigating massive corruption on the part of one of M'Chel's cronies.

The Iranian Regime responded to pro-democracy demonstrations by brutally cracking down on protesters, murdering some in the street, and rounding up others for summary execution. To show his concern and support for democracy, President Obama went out and bought ice cream for his dog.

July --- Patriots celebrated the 4th of July with more tea parties to rouse a resistance against a president and a congress hellbent on tearing down the Republic the founding fathers fought so hard and sacrificed so much to bring into being. A West Coast blogger found a book co-authored by Obama's technology czar in which he advocated forced sterilizations and coerced abortions as a means of population control. Lefties defended him by saying, "It was the '70's." Not a reassuring defense given their moonbat messiah president's fondness for Jimmy Carter's policies. Meanwhile, crazy, lying, FoxNews personality Glenn Beck put up some crazy story about how Obama's (Ho!Ho!Ho!) Green Jobczar Van Jones was a radical communist 911 troofer. Beck was denounced as lying, insane, and dangerous. Within two weeks, Van Jones resigned in the middle of the night because ... well, because Beck was right. Keith Olbermann demanded that Beck be fired and threatened to engage in deranged, vituperative rants on his show every night until that happened.

Also, a racist Harvard professor got into a dispute with a white cop. PBO... who would later admonish Americans not to "jump to conclusions" about a mass murdering jihadist at Fort Hood and an attempting mass-murdering jihadist in Detroit... immediately declared in a press conference that the cop had "acted stupidly" while admitting he didn't know all the facts of the case.

And, a peer-reviewed article in the Journal of Geophysical Research confirmed that climate cycles are natural and Global Warming is a hoax.

August -- Democrat Congresspersons heard from their constituents on the Obama-Pelosi Health Care bill. Since they didn't like what they heard, they announced that all future contact with constituents would be limited to registered members of the SEIU. The SEUI responded by beating up black people and old ladies outside townhall meetings. One especially zealous thug bit off a guy's finger. Lefties responded with, "Under ObamaCare, people who have their fingers bitten off by Union Thugs will have them sewed back on for free," leaving out the word "eventually."

The infamous "Obama as Joker" poster appeared. Leftists went into apoplectic fits at this heresy against the Messiah, and pointed out that no president in history had ever been defaced in such a horrible, insulting, defamatory way.

The Government began a phenomenally successful program called "Cash for Clunkers" in which perfectly serviceable automobiles were destroyed and rendered inoperable in exchange for vehicles with marginally better fuel economy at an estimated cost of $24,000 per vehicle.

Senator Ted Kennedy died, leaving John Kerry and Barney Frank to carry on the legacy of horrendously destructive far-left Democrat legislators from Massachusetts.

September --- PBO cancelled the US Missile Defense program for Eastern Europe, because he believed this show of "Smart Diplomacy" would convince Iran not to pursue its nuclear weapons program. In other news of smart diplomacy, Obama warmly welcomed Mo Qaddafi, Hugo Chavez, and Mahmoud Ahmadinejihad to the opening session of the UN. Not invited: The legitimate, constitutional leader of Honduras. Obama also declared the 9-11 should no longer be considered a day of remembrance, but instead a day in which the workers should offer the labors for the glory of the state.

During an address to Congress, Congressman Joe Wilson responded to one of Obama's many, many lies by shouting "You lie!" The left was again outraged, and pointed out that no president had ever, ever been heckled while giving a speech to Congress before.

California's farmers... driven to insolvency by a judge's edict to preserve a two inch fish... appealed to their senators to turn the water back on. The senators replied, "Sucks to be you, losers" and "Don't call me, Ma'am!"

NY Times columnist David Brooks revealed that he first fell in love with Obama while staring at the crease in his pants. A deranged Keith Olberman claimed he had the largest audience in cable news. If only Neilsen would count the voices in people's heads, it might be true. Meanwhile, Glenn Beck... the man who always lies ... played tapes of ACORN offering to facilitate tax fraud, illegal immigration, and child prostitution. Democrats immediately demanded an investigation... of the two journalists who exposed ACORN's illegal activities.

Airstrip One officially recognized environmentalism as a religion. As soon as they designate economics a superstition, the transition to leftist belief will be complete.

October --- PBO was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. While admitting that he had accomplished nothing, the Nobel Committee said he deserved the award for being so "clean and articulate."

When word was leaked that Rush Limbaugh might become a 2% owner in the St. Louis Rams, the progressive left MSM publicized a number of racist quotations that... um... Limbaugh never actually said. When confronted, the MSM responded, "Who are you going to believe? Us, or a racist who wanted James Earl Ray to receive the Congressional Medal of Honor."

And Glenn Beck... the man who always lies ... played a video of Obama's Communications Director praising Chairman Mao and licking her lips like Mr. Ed going for the peanut butter. A few weeks later, she was gone. A deranged Keith Olbermann dropped his pants and took a crap on his desk, but nobody saw it.

November -- Republicans handily won the governorships in New Jersey and Virginia, and lost in a three way congressional race in NY in which no Republican was running. The left pointed to this as proof that conservatism was dead, dead, dead! Also, Sarah Palin sold about two million copies of her book, Going Rogue, which drove the left absolutely insane. David Letterman was hailed as a hero for not giving into a blackmailer who threatened to reveal the fact that he had sexually harassed many female interns. The interns were allowed to keep the Palin wigs after their encounters.

Also, leaked emails from Climate Scienticians proved that climate data were altered and deleted to artificially create "proof" of human-caused Global Warming. Progressive Leftists responded that the data that went into the Climate Change models were every bit as valid as the data that showed job creation under the Stimulus.

December -- An enormous contingent of moonbats flew to Copehagen in a veritable air force of private jets, generating as much CO2 in a week as an African country emits in a year, to save the planet from the dire consequences of wasteful CO2 production. And just to prove He has a sense of humor, God dumped half a foot of snow on them.

Senate Democrats finally passed a version of ObamaCare using last minute bribes to Senators Mary "Hello Sailor" Landrieu and Ben "Love You Long Time" Nelson.

On Christmas Day, a jihadist came within seconds of detonating a bomb on an aircraft with 278 people on board. The Secretary of Homeland Security declared that the system had worked perfectly, and the TSA would avoid future near-disasters by making it illegal for passengers to leave their seats during the last hour of a flight.

One year down, three to go... if we're lucky.
Obama Hates Fox News

It's the summer of 2008 and Barack Obama is beginning to slip in the election polls.

He blames Fox News for his election worries.

He agrees to a secret meeting at New York's posh Waldorf Astoria hotel with the head of Fox News, Roger Ailes and other top honchos of their parent company News Corp.

The meeting goes into meltdown mode as a finger wagging Obama furiously vents his anger against Fox and their top conservative host Sean Hannity.

Have you heard about this?

Probably not, but Newsmax magazine, in a just-released special report "Obama Hates Fox News," reveals how Obama's war on Fox News all began, how it unfolded, and even predicts what will happen in the future.

You need to get your copy of Newsmax's "Obama Hates Fox News."

Boycotting debates, kicking journalists off a campaign jet, planting questions from friendly media during presidential news conferences, freezing adversarial media out of interviews, singling out individual journalists to scold them publicly — they've all been part of Team Obama's efforts at manipulating and intimidating the media.

Newsmax magazine's special report "Obama Hates Fox News" takes an in-depth look at Obama's army of advisers, who seem to some critics part of an audacious end-run around congressional authority.

The new edition of Newsmax magazine is hitting newsstands across the country, including many Barnes & Noble bookstores and Hudson News airport newsstands.

obama: born out of wedlock?
BMG Exclusive: Scott Brown thought maybe Obama was born out of wedlock
by: David
Sat Jan 16, 2010 at 13:11:20 PM EST

(Bumped. This is getting some attention. TPM, New Republic, Washington Monthly, Washington Independent, Digby, Americablog, MyDD, heck even the Herald, all have posted the video and/or linked here. UPDATE (Sunday morning): YouTube just informed me by email that "Your video 'Scott Brown wonders if Obama was born out of wedlock' has become popular on YouTube." - promoted by David)

Born out of wedlock? Really??

Well, yes. During (or maybe shortly after) the 2008 Republican convention, Brown was on a panel discussion (aired on the now-defunct CN8 cable news channel) about Sarah Palin. He defended her pretty strongly, as you'd expect. But then, in the course of discussing Bristol Palin, Scott comes up with this:

Wow. Just to reiterate, in case you can't see the video: in response to the statement that Obama's mother was married when she gave birth, Scott says, "well, I don't know about that." Then he chuckles. "Uh huh huh."

Here's hoping that someone who might actually get an answer out of him (I would not include BMG in that category, so I don't think we'll bother) will ask Scott what was in his mind when he wondered aloud whether President Obama might have been born out of wedlock. UPDATE: TPM: "When contacted by TPM, Brown spokesperson Felix Browne provided this response: 'This is a non-issue. Scott's comments are being distorted by supporters of Martha Coakley who are trying to tear him down.'" No Felix, Scott's comments are being reported, not distorted. There's a difference.

I mean, maybe Brown really didn't know, and was just expressing the fact that he was unsure whether Obama's mother was married. But why would that possibility even be in his head? I took a little tour of the wingnuttosphere to find out who'd been saying what on that topic. Join me on the flip.
David :: BMG Exclusive: Scott Brown thought maybe Obama was born out of wedlock
Turns out that a number of fringey folks, including one Andy Martin and prominent wingnut Jerome Corsi (of "Unfit for Command" fame) have been assiduously peddling the theory that Ann Dunham and Barack Obama, Sr. never actually got married. Said Martin, in July of 2008 (not long before Brown taped the interview posted above):

Barack Obama, Senior, and Anne Dunham never married. Obama knows this fact. This is also why he keeps his white grandmother a virtual prisoner; she knows too, and she won't lie.

Through the past several decades Obama has pretended he 'didn't know' the facts about his illegitimate birth. He thought he could get away with the big lie. And he almost did get away with it....

His mother was promiscuous and had a child out of wedlock, in 1961, when that was still scandalous behavior. Is this Obama's idea of 'family values?' Obviously, he has been deceiving the American people and hoping his advertising lies could overcome the truth. He has failed.

Corsi, for his part, has been keeping the faith even post-election. This post at World Net Daily, "Was Obama's birth out of wedlock?", is from September of 2009:

Was President Obama born out of wedlock in 1961? ... As WND has previously reported, the only documentation for Ann Dunham's marriage to Barack Obama, Sr., comes from their divorce documents that list the marriage date as Feb. 2, 1961.... No wedding certificate or photograph of a ceremony for Ann Dunham and Barack Obama Sr. has ever been found or published.

Etc. etc. Oh, and one more thing about World Net Daily: there, the Brown campaign actually is running advertising. It's got the "Paid for by the Scott Brown for U.S. Senate Committee" logo on it, and it's not a Google ad (though those are present on the page as well). If you want WND's full birther rundown, with Scott's ad running alongside it, here ya go (screenshot here). I was wrong about the other one; I'm not wrong about this.

In addition, there were some very complicated (and, needless to say, quite peculiar) theories floating around back in 2008 to the effect that, even if Obama's parents did get married, the marriage might have been invalid. Here's one of them, from August 11, 2008, just a couple of weeks before Brown taped the above interview:

When he was 18, Barack Obama Sr. married a woman named Kezia and had four children with her. Two of them later returned to Kenya from the United States. He never divorced her. In the US, polygamy is illegal. If you are already married, regardless of where you got married, all subsequent marriages are invalid. This is the case with the marriage of Stanley Ann Dunham and Barack Obama Sr. in February 1961. Barak Obama Jr. was born out of wedlock.

One amusing irony of this particular "out of wedlock" theory is that its creator is actually using it to argue that Obama is eligible to serve as president. In a nutshell, the incredibly convoluted theory is that even if Obama was born in Kenya or somewhere else, the fact that his mother was not legally married when she gave birth to him means that, under U.S. law in effect at the time, Obama nonetheless acquired U.S. citizenship at birth by virtue of his mother's American citizenship. Whereas, if she had been legally married to Obama Sr. but gave birth out of the country, Obama Jr. wouldn't have been a "natural born citizen" because a different law would have applied. Whew.

Did Brown know about any of this stuff? Did he take it seriously? Is that why, when someone else says that Obama's mother was married when she gave birth to him, Brown says "I don't know about that"? And if not, then what?
Obama, The Emperor, Has No Clothes We’ve Reached The Tipping Point And His Programs Must Be Stopped

The Steady Drip published

If we had a Winston Churchill in the White House, America would still be in mortal danger and we would have a long, tough fight for survival ahead. We face a threat of Islamic terrorism as dangerous as any of the many threats of our history including that of Nazi Germany, Soviet Communism, Italian Fascism, and Japanese Imperialism. We face economic problems and international competition that call into question our ability to maintain the productive economy necessary to support the military machine needed for survival. We have a failed educational system that will not provide the scientific innovation and educated personnel and other advances necessary to maintain economic viability in the 21st Century. We have a biased, dishonest, and fraudulent mainstream media that misleads and deceives rather than informing and educating the public on the issues of our times.

But we don’t have this best-case scenario in the White House — we have the worst-case scenario. Yes, it’s about time America wakes up to the fact that we have a radical, leftist, socialist politician who still carries the trademark of the corrupt Cook County Chicago political machine from which he came and who has populated the White House with wild radicals and thugs willing to use intimidation and anything else if needed to achieve their goals. The Chicago machine adopts the Saul Alinsky Rules for Radicals that says the end justifies the mean, i.e., anything goes. On top of that our president is incompetent. At this time of the greatest danger to America, we have another even greater danger: a president not up to the job and not fit for the job.

Someone has to ask the president, “Have you no decency? Have you no character? Have you no honesty? Do your words and your promises mean nothing? Are you willing to justify any means to achieve your ends?” Yes, we are well past the tipping point, and it is time for the obvious conclusion, “The emperor has no clothes.” If we don’t recognize Mr. Obama for what he is by now, we must be clueless and hopeless.

President Barack Hussein Obama has clearly demonstrated he is exactly what many expected and even much worse. For example, right from the beginning, early in the last presidential campaign, I said Mr. Obama was a world-class fraud, phony, faker, fibber, and four-flusher and a radical, liberal, leftist socialist, America-hater to boot. Now, I realize that description may sound strong, but it wasn’t strong enough. Mr. Obama is much worse than that.

Every politician may break campaign promises. But even the most corrupt ones have limits. Mr. Obama has no limits. At the very core of his campaign, he claimed to be the great post-partisan, non-partisan unifier to bring us all together and listen to every side of every issue. He told us a gazillion times there are no Red States and Blue States but only the United States. He claimed a new politics, with openness and transparency in all matters. He was the great courier of hope and change. But that was just campaign rhetoric and even post-election rhetoric. He has demonstrated he is the exact opposite of his basic claims. He is highly partisan, content to shutout, shut up, and ignore Republican ideas and Republican voices. He rejects transparency, and is as secretive and opaque as possible. Other politicians have broken campaign promises, but never on a scale such as this involving the promises most central to their campaigns, and never before so openly and brazenly with so little regard for the citizens who were sold this fraudulent bill of campaign goods.

For proof of Mr. Obama’s breaking all of his core promises, look at what is going on with ObamaCare. Everyone probably remembers his promise, repeated at least eight times, that negotiations on the health-care bill would be televised on C-SPAN and would be streaming on the Internet. Among his statements: “We’re going to do all these negotiations on C-SPAN…We will work on the process publicly … These negotiations will be on C-SPAN.” He constantly explained that putting all negotiations (yes, he said, “all”) on C-SPAN would assure that everyone could see for themselves whether their Congressmen were putting forth arguments on behalf of insurance companies, drug companies, and other special interest groups or making arguments on behalf of most of their constituents. You can hear him make this promise by going to the Internet, where at least eight videos of Mr. Obama making that promise are collected (

The other examples of Mr. Obama’s breaking his promise of transparency and openness in every way can be cited that are just as extreme as the C-SPAN promise. The negotiations to reconcile the Senate and House version of ObamaCare are being carried out behind closed doors in secrecy. Republicans are not even represented.

And his core promise of bipartisanship has also been demonstrated to be a total fraud, which is what Mr. Obama is. He called for bipartisanship and a new politics all during the campaign and continues to do so (apparently in an attempt to silence Dick Cheney and other leading critics of his policies that are making America vulnerable to terrorism). But Mr. Obama’s words and rhetoric have no connection with his actions and programs. Republicans have had no part in drafting the legislation and their ideas and amendments have been ignored. There has been no real attempt to adopt the many sound suggestions and legislative proposals made by Republicans, such as permitting the purchase of health insurance across state lines and doing something to curb malpractice lawsuit abuse. Mr. Obama and the Democratic Congress have been strictly partisan, and haven’t even been willing to adopt a token idea from across the aisle. They do not want one note of dissent and not one baby compromise. They have made it clear that ObamaCare will be jammed down the throat of the American people regardless of their views and regardless of democratic values and traditions. Even a question about the constitutionality of Obamacare was fobbed off by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, as if the reporter asking the question must be deranged for even raising the issue. In fact, there are serious questions about aspects of the ObamaCare proposals.

What is even more outrageous than breaking the most fundamental Obama promises is the attempt to pretend they are not being broken. Obama’s White House actually refuses to explain why these promises are being broken. In fact, they won’t even respond to questions about the C-SPAN promise. When Mr. Obama’s press secretary, Robert Gibbs, was asked about it, he simply ignored the question and did so the next day when the same question was asked. When Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was asked about it, she went into a speech claiming this was the most open and transparent legislative process in memory. Her reply was Orwellian, being the exact opposite of the truth. The Obama team apparently thinks the Americans are totally idiots willing to believe brazen, blatant, bold-faced lies.

This isn’t hope and change. This isn’t politics as usual. This is worse than politics as usual. This is the corrupt Chicago-style machine politics of thugs and intimidators. Recall that Mr. Obama came out of the corrupt Chicago machine and even refused to work with those trying to bring about its reformation. And now we see he has brought the corruption and thuggery of that style of politics to the White House. We not only have that style of politics in control in the White House, but even worse, its agenda is the radical, liberal, leftist, socialist program that runs contrary to American values and the very principles of our Founding Fathers. As we know, right before his election, Mr. Obama said he was going to fundamentally transform America. And that’s what he is doing, but transforming it by destroying its constitutional structure.

He is involved in an unprecedented expansion of government, explosion of spending, national debts and deficits, taxation, and regulation of every aspect of American life. His debt is unsustainable, and his expansion of government is so great that it is going to squeeze out and kill the private sector. That government expansion will also kill American entrepreneurship upon which America’s productivity has always depended. At the same time, it is contracting our liberties. A gargantuan government controls almost everything and that means the private market and the private citizen control almost nothing. His signature legislation on health-care is an attempt to control America and Americans. The Obama agenda is nothing more than the “road to serfdom.”

If that’s not bad enough, this corrupt Chicago-style politician has demonstrated he is incompetent, as this column has documented. (See, for example, “Time for a Change? Obama’s Mistakes Say So,” Jan. 10.) In addition, he seems detached from our major threat of Islamic terrorism. As Charles Krauthammer has pointed out, his initial responses to the Christmas terrorism in Detroit sounded more like a police report than a leader responding to an existential threat to American survival. Mr. Obama spoke of a “suspect” who was an “isolated extremist” who “allegedly” committed certain acts. It took him three days to come up with that initial, pathetically lame response. Only on his fifth attempt did Mr. Obama finally recognize we are at war. But, his earlier responses probably reflected his true views and feeling, and his fifth attempt was probably an act, scripted by his advisors who realized his early statements were turning the public off.

Mr. Obama and the radicals and thugs now entrenched in the White House are bad enough, and are a certain formula for the destruction of America. But making a bad situation worse is the mainstream media, which acts more as an advocate for Mr. Obama and his programs and less like a fair and balanced source of information the public needs to have. Further compounding this lethal formula is a Democratic Party, led by the Obama/Reid/Pelosi triumvirate that is a virtual rubber stamp of any program. And that party has adopted the Obama philosophy based on Rules for Radicals that says the ends justifies the means. In other words, anything goes. That’s why they are content to ignore the public’s views and the traditions and precedents of Congress, and jam through legislation that is not analyzed, debated, or even read. They are immoral, unprincipled zealots that put their agenda above that of the American people, American values, and the American Constitution.

So, it should be past the tipping point. We should be at the point when most Americans can say, “The Emperor has no clothes.” If Americans don’t stop this headlong rush to destroy America, there will soon be no America left to save. Now is the time. The citizens of this greatest nation on earth have to rise up, protest the Obama agenda, and stop it before it succeeds in transforming America into something our Founding Fathers of yesterday and our citizens of today would not even recognize.

We’ve had more than enough of Mr. Obama’s plans. And we have to start acting like we mean it. Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country… and to stop Mr. Obama’s plans to destroy America, as we know it.
