DICK MORRIS – which side is he really on?

November 10, 2008

Dick Morris is often on FOX, providing a ‘conservative’ view of this campaign.  But, did you know that less than 2 years ago Morris was in Kenya – at a press conference with Ralia Odinga, where he told Kenyans that he was going to manage Odinga’s campaign, pro bono?  Or that Obama donated a chunk of money to Odinga’s campaign, along with the pro bono value of Morris’ work?  (see link to campaign accounting below)

 

Odinga, the thug in Kenya who called for riots if he lost; and who has an agreement with Muslims to make Sharia law the law of Kenya?  This seems to make Dick Morris highly suspect in all he says and does.  And I might add (if you view the videos) you will see a remarkable similarity in the Odinga rhetoric and call for “change” to that of his cousin, Obama (who was over there about the same time as Morris).

(note the list of donors to Odinga – “Friends of Senator BO” – according to a person in Kenya, that donation equals $1 million US and was from both Dick Morris and Barack Obama !!!!  And Dick Morris donated his time to organize and run the Odinga campaign!!!!

America’s Future

November 4, 2008

 

GOD SAVE AMERICA

the

REPUBLIC

 

It is now election day – and many of us hold anxiety that is palpable!  We worry that too many people have not really looked at Obama; too many have never bothered to do any research on the guy.  Too many have closed their minds, believing that ‘change’ in and of itself is all that is required and that Obama will deliver a change that suits us. 

 

Too few people ‘get’ what is going on with Obama.  Far too few understand that the change we have coming is not the change we wanted or were told about.  And far too few realize that the real Obama is vastly different than the man behind the facade, and of those people, that have no clue what lurks behind. 

 

Sadly most people who have or will vote for Obama never bothered to do their homework, never took the time to investigate who the real Obama is and what his agenda is about.  They do not know they are being duped.

 

What we have in this global community now is like a tipsy domino chain.  So fragile, that if a domino is moved slightly others flutter, others topple, and a chain reaction begins. 

The chain is part economics, part ideology, part security, part internal stability, part diplomacy.  Mess with any of the parts, and all are affected.

 

Obama’s plan – and if any who may read this have not bothered to do any investigation, I urge you to Google and read two things – just two – one is about the “New Party” and the other is the Cloward-Piven Strategy.  Obama was a member of the New Party (some believe he still is, but most who have studied his background believe that the philosophy of the New Party remains at the core of Obama’s beliefs today).  And Cloward-Piven has served as the foundation of most ‘progressive’, radical, and/or socialist organizations, of which many are a part of Obama’s alliances (both individuals and organizations).  If you read a bit about those two topics you will have some insight into the real Obama.

 

Those 2 matters are the bottom line.  Much has been written about his alliances, much has been divulged about his actions over the years, much has been speculated about all the unanswered questions (some of which have been answered through research), and much has been said about the many audio and video clips of his own words. 

 

If you have not bothered to assess any of that it is too late to educate you now.  But it won’t take long to look up and read about the 2 factors above.  You owe that much to yourself, to your family, your city/state/country.  It is the very least you should do and in reality you should have done a good deal of inquiry about a man with virtually nothing known about him (still). 

 

Today, after 2 years of observation and investigation, dozens of experts in areas of economics, energy, finance, stock market, body language, security, military, personality characteristics, media, politics, international relations have analyzed Barack Obama.  These people have no vested interest in the individual, merely the reflection of policy and impact, personality and impact, strategy and impact.  He has garnered enormous concern from most all such experts.  He’s regarded as a man who poses great danger for this country on so many levels.

 

Again, you should have done your research and I’m not going to attempt to inform, as I have done that for many weeks.

 

History has a way of telling us what is to come based on what has been.  It applies to all nature of aspects of any civilization, country, leader, form of government.  There are huge lessons to be learned from other countries and other times, lessons that many have forgotten or never even heard about (such as Vietnam).  One lesson we need to keep at the forefront of our minds – terrorism.  Over the last several years, as each country in the West has elected a new leader, they have been struck with deadly force by terrorists — anywhere from the day before the election to 3-4 days after.

 

We know (because they have told us time and again, continually) that the terrorists (of every stripe) and their supporters (Saudis, Iranians, Hamas, Palestinians, Kenyans, etc) that their main target is the US, for which they have their biggest plans. 

 

Can we really afford on the job training during the ‘crisis’ that Biden promised, and various military and security types indicate is likely?  Good God NO. 

 

This country was created by wise men with vision.  They addressed a number of matters that they anticipated.  They were dealing with Islamic attack even back then!  They knew that a Democracy would not survive.  They created instead a Republic, and indicated that it was a gift that would last as long as we could keep it. 

 

Well, our time is nearing the end.  We are in the transition from Republic to Democracy (massive government intervention  over the people) and about to become an Oligarchy – and that is where all bets are off, all of what we know as America dissolves.  That is when total control over the people is mounted by a ‘few’ elites.  Those folks have been forming a line – behind Obama – and within 4 years their job will be done – the cake baked – and everything you knew, believed in, trusted — all gone.  I believe that to the core – without any shadow of a doubt.  So much do I believe it I’d bet my life on it.  

 

YOUR CHOICE IS CLEAR – NOT FOR OR AGAINST CHANGE (IT WILL HAPPEN NO MATTER WHO IS IN OFFICE) – BUT FOR PRESERVATION OF OUR REPUBLIC AND FREEDOMS, OR ABDICATING OUR FUTURE AND FREEDOMS TO THE SOON TO EMERGE OLIGARCHY.

 

The word oligarchy is from the Greek words for “few” (ὀλίγios olígios) and “rule” (ἄρχeiv arkhein). Such states are often controlled by politically powerful families whose children were heavily conditioned and mentored to be heirs of the power of the oligarchy. This type of power by its very nature may not be exercised openly; the oligarchs preferring to remain “the power behind the throne“, exerting control through economic means. Oligarchies have been tyrannical throughout history, being completely reliant on public servitude to exist.

 

 

The View from the UK on our Election

October 31, 2008

Sometimes a foreigner sees us more accurately than we see ourselves.

From the British author Melanie Phillips, writing in The Spectator (UK):

“You have to pinch yourself—a Marxist radical who all his life has been mentored by, sat at the feet of, worshiped with, befriended, endorsed the philosophy of, funded and been in turn funded, politically promoted and supported a nexus comprising black power anti-white racists, Jew haters, revolutionary Marxists, unrepentant former terrorists, and Chicago mobsters, is on the verge of becoming President of the United States. And apparently, it’s considered impolite to say so.”

Indeed.

Five days left.

Follow the Bouncing Tax Ball – Obama Style

October 30, 2008

During 2008 Obama has pressed lowering taxes and sharing the wealth.  What has happened however, is that the income to not get an increase has gone from $1 million (in the Spring) down to $500,000, then down to $250,000, then $200,000 and then $150,000.

I see a trend here.  And worse, what Obama is NOT saying is that there will be other taxes – oh so many.  Forget the death taxes, the capital gains taxes and let’s just look at the taxes piled atop an increased income tax.  The income tax will go to about 40% (for what income level we can’t be sure since it keeps dipping downward) – but on top of that will be increases in social security tax and medicare tax, taking those of you at some rate about $150,000 (or lower) up to nearly 50% !!  That is ONE HALF OF EVERY DOLLAR MADE GOES TO THE GOVERNMENT to be used to pay for welfare programs and entitlements for those who don’t work.  Now I realize some of those on welfare really need it due to disability, illness etc.  No one begrudges them assistance.  But what about the billions of people who have been on the dole for decades and see no need to work? 

The loss of half of one’s income will make a huge difference in one’s ability to support their family, possible only with a major change in lifestyle.  And keep in mind that this near 50% is FEDERAL taxation and does not include sales tax, state taxes, property taxes etc.  Some people could find themselves at well over 60% taken out of their paychecks. 

If one lives in most of the East, $250,000 is hardly wealthy due to the cost of living (i.e. $4000 a month rent for a tiny apartment in Manhattan or Boston, or in the West in San Francisco or Los Angeles).  It might be a comfortable income in Iowa or Nebraska, or Mississippi, but still, 60% taxation?  Outrageous!!

With all that however, economic experts have run the numbers and have determined that it is virtually impossible to give 40% of the population (those who pay no taxes) a $500-1000 a year check, pay for all the added welfare and social programs Obama indicates he will deliver) on the backs of those uber-rich and the upper middle class. 

What does that mean?  It means that most everyone is going to see tax increases – it is a Fact of Life in an Obama world.  How many entrepreneurs are going to expand business, hire new employees and increase sales under such enormous tax penalty??  NEXT TO NONE

The choise is clear on so many levels – security, cleaning up waste in government, taxation, our economy and its growth, honesty, and an open and transparent government dedicated to Free Speech and total accountability    VERSUS  an administration of secrecy, limited powers under control of a handful of people, restrictions on free speech, increased taxes, declining productivity, increased unemployment, and serious risk and exposure to foreign attack (economic, terrorism and ideological). 

ISLAMIZATION OF EUROPE HEADED TO THE US – Israel at Risk

October 30, 2008

 

America as the last man standing  

‘In a generation or two, the US will ask itself: who lost Europe?’

Here is the speech of Geert Wilders, Chairman, Party for Freedom, the Netherlands, at the Four Seasons, New York, introducing an Alliance of Patriots and announcing the Facing Jihad Conference in Jerusalem (which I hope to be attending).

The speech was sponsored by the Hudson Institute on September 25.

Dear friends,

Thank you very much for inviting me. Great to be at the Four Seasons. I come from a country that has one season only: a rainy season that starts January 1st and ends December 31st. When we have three sunny days in a row, the government declares a national emergency. So Four Seasons, that’s new to me.

It’s great to be in New York. When I see the skyscrapers and office buildings, I think of what Ayn Rand said: ‘The sky over New York and the will of man made visible.’ Of course. Without the Dutch you would have been nowhere, still figuring out how to buy this island from the Indians. But we are glad we did it for you.. And, frankly, you did a far better job than we possibly could have done.

I come to America with a mission. All is not well in the old world. There is a tremendous danger looming, and it is very difficult to be optimistic. We might be in the final stages of the Islamization of Europe. This not only is a clear and present danger to the future of Europe itself, it is a threat to America and the sheer survival of the West. The danger I see looming is the scenario of America as the last man standing. The United States as the last bastion of Western civilization, facing an Islamic Europe. In a generation or two, the US will ask itself: who lost Europe? Patriots from around Europe risk their lives every day to prevent precisely this scenario form becoming a reality.

My short lecture consists of 4 parts.

First I will describe the situation on the ground in Europe. Then, I will say a few things about Islam. Thirdly, if you are still here, I will talk a little bit about the movie you just saw. To close I will tell you about a meeting in Jerusalem.

The Europe you know is changing. You have probably seen the landmarks. The Eiffel Tower and Trafalgar Square and Rome’s ancient buildings and maybe the canals of Amsterdam. They are still there. And they still look very much the same as they did a hundred years ago.

But in all of these cities, sometimes a few blocks away from your tourist destination, there is another world, a world very few visitors see – and one that does not appear in your tourist guidebook. It is the world of the parallel society created by Muslim mass-migration. All throughout Europe a new reality is rising: entire Muslim neighbourhoods where very few indigenous people reside or are even seen. And if they are, they might regret it. This goes for the police as well. It’s the world of head scarves, where women walk around in figureless tents, with baby strollers and a group of children. Their husbands, or slaveholders if you prefer, walk three steps ahead. With mosques on many street corners. The shops have signs you and I cannot read. You will be hard-pressed to find any economic activity. These are Muslim ghettos controlled by religious fanatics. These are Muslim neighbourhoods, and they are mushrooming in every city across Europe. These are the building-blocks for territorial control of increasingly larger portions of Europe, street by street, neighbourhood by neighbourhood, city by city.

There are now thousands of mosques throughout Europe. With larger congregations than there are in churches. And in every European city there are plans to build super-mosques that will dwarf every church in the region. Clearly, the signal is: we rule.

Many European cities are already one-quarter Muslim: just take Amsterdam, Marseille and Malmo in Sweden. In many cities the majority of the under-18 population is Muslim. Paris is now surrounded by a ring of Muslim neighbourhoods. Mohammed is the most popular name among boys in many cities. In some elementary schools in Amsterdam the farm can no longer be mentioned, because that would also mean mentioning the pig, and that would be an insult to Muslims. Many state schools in Belgium and Denmark only serve halal food to all pupils. In once-tolerant Amsterdam gays are beaten up almost exclusively by Muslims. Non-Muslim women routinely hear ‘whore, whore’. Satellite dishes are not pointed to local TV stations, but to stations in the country of origin. In France school teachers are advised to avoid authors deemed offensive to Muslims, including Voltaire and Diderot; the same is increasingly true of Darwin. The history of the Holocaust can in many cases no longer be taught because of Muslim sensitivity. In England sharia courts are now officially part of the British legal system. Many neighbourhoods in France are no-go areas for women without head scarves. Last week a man almost died after being beaten up by Muslims in Brussels, because he was drinking during the Ramadan. Jews are fleeing France in record numbers, on the run for the worst wave of anti-Semitism since World War II. French is now commonly spoken on the streets of Tel Aviv and Netanya, Israel. I could go on forever with stories like this. Stories about Islamization.

A total of fifty-four million Muslims now live in Europe. San Diego University recently calculated that a staggering 25 percent of the population in Europe will be Muslim just 12 years from now. Bernhard Lewis has predicted a Muslim majority by the end of this century.

Now these are just numbers. And the numbers would not be threatening if the Muslim-immigrants had a strong desire to assimilate. But there are few signs of that. The Pew Research Center reported that half of French Muslims see their loyalty to Islam as greater than their loyalty to France. One-third of French Muslims do not object to suicide attacks. The British Centre for Social Cohesion reported that one-third of British Muslim students are in favour of a worldwide caliphate. A Dutch study reported that half of Dutch Muslims admit they ‘understand’ the 9/11 attacks.

Muslims demand what they call ‘respect’. And this is how we give them respect. Our elites are willing to give in. To give up. In my own country we have gone from calls by one cabinet member to turn Muslim holidays into official state holidays, to statements by another cabinet member, that Islam is part of Dutch culture, to an affirmation by the Christian-Democratic attorney general that he is willing to accept sharia in the Netherlands if there is a Muslim majority. We have cabinet members with passports from Morocco and Turkey.

Muslim demands are supported by unlawful behaviour, ranging from petty crimes and random violence, for example against ambulance workers and bus drivers, to small-scale riots. Paris has seen its uprising in the low-income suburbs, the banlieus. Some prefer to see these as isolated incidents, but I call it a Muslim intifada. I call the perpetrators ‘settlers’. Because that is what they are. They do not come to integrate into our societies, they come to integrate our society into their Dar-al-Islam. Therefore, they are settlers.

Much of this street violence I mentioned is directed exclusively against non-Muslims, forcing many native people to leave their neighbourhoods, their cities, their countries.

Politicians shy away from taking a stand against this creeping sharia. They believe in the equality of all cultures. Moreover, on a mundane level, Muslims are now a swing vote not to be ignored.

Our many problems with Islam cannot be explained by poverty, repression or the European colonial past, as the Left claims. Nor does it have anything to do with Palestinians or American troops in Iraq. The problem is Islam itself.

Allow me to give you a brief Islam 101. The first thing you need to know about Islam is the importance of the book of the Quran. The Quran is Allah’s personal word, revealed by an angel to Mohammed, the prophet. This is where the trouble starts.. Every word in the Quran is Allah’s word and therefore not open to discussion or interpretation. It is valid for every Muslim and for all times. Therefore, there is no such a thing as moderate Islam. Sure, there are a lot of moderate Muslims. But a moderate Islam is non-existent.

The Quran calls for hatred, violence, submission, murder, and terrorism. The Quran calls for Muslims to kill non-Muslims, to terrorize non-Muslims and to fulfil their duty to wage war: violent jihad. Jihad is a duty for every Muslim; Islam is to rule the world – by the sword. The Quran is clearly anti-Semitic, describing Jews as monkeys and pigs.

The second thing you need to know is the importance of Mohammed the prophet. His behaviour is an example to all Muslims and cannot be criticized. Now, if Mohammed had been a man of peace, let us say like Ghandi and Mother Theresa wrapped in one, there would be no problem. But Mohammed was a warlord, a mass murderer, a pedophile, and had several marriages – at the same time. Islamic tradition tells us how he fought in battles, how he had his enemies murdered and even had prisoners of war executed. Mohammed himself slaughtered the Jewish tribe of Banu Qurayza. He advised on matters of slavery, but never advised to liberate slaves. Islam has no other morality than the advancement of Islam. If it is good for Islam, it is good. If it is bad for Islam, it is bad. There is no gray area or other side.

Quran as Allah’s own word and Mohammed as the perfect man are the two most important facets of Islam. Let no one fool you about Islam being a religion. Sure, it has a god, and a here-after, and 72 virgins. But in its essence Islam is a political ideology. It is a system that lays down detailed rules for society and the life of every person. Islam wants to dictate every aspect of life. Islam means ‘submission’. Islam is not compatible with freedom and democracy, because what it strives for is sharia. If you want to compare Islam to anything, compare it to communism or national-socialism, these are all totalitarian ideologies.

This is what you need to know about Islam, in order to understand what is going on in Europe. For millions of Muslims the Quran and the life of Mohammed are not 14 centuries old, but are an everyday reality, an ideal, that guide every aspect of their lives. Now you know why Winston Churchill called Islam ‘the most retrograde force in the world’, and why he compared Mein Kampf to the Quran.

Which brings me to my movie, Fitna.

I am a lawmaker, and not a movie maker. But I felt I had the moral duty to educate about Islam. The duty to make clear that the Quran stands at the heart of what some people call terrorism but is in reality jihad. I wanted to show that the problems of Islam are at the core of Islam, and do not belong to its fringes.

Now, from the day the plan for my movie was made public, it caused quite a stir, in the Netherlands and throughout Europe. First, there was a political storm, with government leaders, across the continent in sheer panic. The Netherlands was put under a heightened terror alert, because of possible attacks or a revolt by our Muslim population. The Dutch branch of the Islamic organisation Hizb ut-Tahrir declared that the Netherlands was due for an attack. Internationally, there was a series of incidents. The Taliban threatened to organize additional attacks against Dutch troops in Afghanistan, and a website linked to Al Qaeda published the message that I ought to be killed, while various muftis in the Middle East stated that I would be responsible for all the bloodshed after the screening of the movie. In Afghanistan and Pakistan the Dutch flag was burned on several occasions. Dolls representing me were also burned. The Indonesian President announced that I will never be admitted into Indonesia again, while the UN Secretary General and the European Union issued cowardly statements in the same vein as those made by the Dutch Government. I could go on and on. It was an absolute disgrace, a sell-out.

A plethora of legal troubles also followed, and have not ended yet. Currently the state of Jordan is litigating against me. Only last week there were renewed security agency reports about a heightened terror alert for the Netherlands because of Fitna.

Now, I would like to say a few things about Israel. Because, very soon, we will get together in its capitol. The best way for a politician in Europe to loose votes is to say something positive about Israel. The public has wholeheartedly accepted the Palestinian narrative, and sees Israel as the aggressor. I, however, will continue to speak up for Israel. I see defending Israel as a matter of principle. I have lived in this country and visited it dozens of times. I support Israel. First, because it is the Jewish homeland after two thousand years of exile up to and including Auschwitz, second because it is a democracy, and third because Israel is our first line of defense.

Samuel Huntington writes it so aptly: ‘Islam has bloody borders’. Israel is located precisely on that border. This tiny country is situated on the fault line of jihad, frustrating Islam’s territorial advance. Israel is facing the front lines of jihad, like Kashmir, Kosovo, the Philippines, Southern Thailand, Darfur in Sudan, Lebanon, and Aceh in Indonesia. Israel is simply in the way. The same way West-Berlin was during the Cold War.

The war against Israel is not a war against Israel. It is a war against the West. It is jihad. Israel is simply receiving the blows that are meant for all of us. If there would have been no Israel, Islamic imperialism would have found other venues to release its energy and its desire for conquest. Thanks to Israeli parents who send their children to the army and lay awake at night, parents in Europe and America can sleep well and dream, unaware of the dangers looming.

Many in Europe argue in favor of abandoning Israel in order to address the grievances of our Muslim minorities. But if Israel were, God forbid, to go down, it would not bring any solace to the West. It would not mean our Muslim minorities would all of a sudden change their behavior, and accept our values. On the contrary, the end of Israel would give enormous encouragement to the forces of Islam. They would, and rightly so, see the demise of Israel as proof that the West is weak, and doomed. The end of Israel would not mean the end of our problems with Islam, but only the beginning. It would mean the start of the final battle for world domination. If they can get Israel, they can get everything. Therefore, it is not that the West has a stake in Israel. It is Israel.

It is very difficult to be an optimist in the face of the growing Islamization of Europe. All the tides are against us. On all fronts we are losing. Demographically the momentum is with Islam. Muslim immigration is even a source of pride within ruling liberal parties. Academia, the arts, the media, trade unions, the churches, the business world, the entire political establishment have all converted to the suicidal theory of multiculturalism. So-called journalists volunteer to label any and all critics of Islamization as a ‘right-wing extremists’ or ‘racists’. The entire establishment has sided with our enemy. Leftists, liberals and Christian-Democrats are now all in bed with Islam.

This is the most painful thing to see: the betrayal by our elites. At this moment in Europe’s history, our elites are supposed to lead us. To stand up for centuries of civilization. To defend our heritage. To honour our eternal Judeo-Christian values that made Europe what it is today. But there are very few signs of hope to be seen at the governmental level. Sarkozy, Merkel, Brown, Berlusconi; in private, they probably know how grave the situation is. But when the little red light goes on, they stare into the camera and tell us that Islam is a religion of peace, and we should all try to get along nicely and sing Kumbaya. They willingly participate in, what President Reagan so aptly called: ‘the betrayal of our past, the squandering of our freedom.’

If there is hope in Europe, it comes from the people, not from the elites. Change can only come from a grass-roots level. It has to come from the citizens themselves. Yet these patriots will have to take on the entire political, legal and media establishment.

Over the past years there have been some small, but encouraging, signs of a rebirth of the original European spirit. Maybe the elites turn their backs on freedom, the public does not. In my country, the Netherlands, 60 percent of the population now sees the mass immigration of Muslims as the number one policy mistake since World War II. And another 60 percent sees Islam as the biggest threat to our national identity. I don’t think the public opinion in Holland is very different from other European countries.

Patriotic parties that oppose jihad are growing, against all odds. My own party debuted two years ago, with five percent of the vote. Now it stands at ten percent in the polls. The same is true of all smililary-minded parties in Europe. They are fighting the liberal establishment, and are gaining footholds on the political arena, one voter at the time.

Now, for the first time, these patriotic parties will come together and exchange experiences. It may be the start of something big. Something that might change the map of Europe for decades to come. It might also be Europe’s last chance.

This December a conference will take place in Jerusalem. Thanks to Professor Aryeh Eldad, a member of Knesset, we will be able to watch Fitna in the Knesset building and discuss the jihad. We are organizing this event in Israel to emphasize the fact that we are all in the same boat together, and that Israel is part of our common heritage. Those attending will be a select audience. No racist organizations will be allowed. And we will only admit parties that are solidly democratic.

This conference will be the start of an Alliance of European patriots. This Alliance will serve as the backbone for all organizations and political parties that oppose jihad and Islamization. For this Alliance I seek your support.

This endeavor may be crucial to America and to the West. America may hold fast to the dream that, thanks to its location, it is safe from jihad and sharia. But seven years ago to the day, there was still smoke rising from ground zero, following the attacks that forever shattered that dream. Yet there is a danger even greater danger than terrorist attacks, the scenario of America as the last man standing. The lights may go out in Europe faster than you can imagine. An Islamic Europe means a Europe without freedom and democracy, an economic wasteland, an intellectual nightmare, and a loss of military might for America – as its allies will turn into enemies, enemies with atomic bombs. With an Islamic Europe, it would be up to America alone to preserve the heritage of Rome, Athens and Jerusalem.

Dear friends, liberty is the most precious of gifts. My generation never had to fight for this freedom, it was offered to us on a silver platter, by people who fought for it with their lives. All throughout Europe American cemeteries remind us of the young boys who never made it home, and whose memory we cherish. My generation does not own this freedom; we are merely its custodians. We can only hand over this hard won liberty to Europe’s children in the same state in which it was offered to us. We cannot strike a deal with mullahs and imams. Future generations would never forgive us. We cannot squander our liberties. We simply do not have the right to do so.

This is not the first time our civilization is under threat. We have seen dangers before. We have been betrayed by our elites before. They have sided with our enemies before.. And yet, then, freedom prevailed.

These are not times in which to take lessons from appeasement, capitulation, giving away, giving up or giving in. These are not times in which to draw lessons from Mr. Chamberlain. These are times calling us to draw lessons from Mr. Churchill and the words he spoke in 1942:

‘Never give in, never, never, never, never, in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy’.

  a quote from Senator Obama’s book:

 

“I will stand with the Muslims

should the political winds shift in an

 ugly direction

 

This is a pretty straightforward statement. It seems to me to leave little doubt as to his sympathies. In addition to this, there is an incredible body of evidence as to Senator Obama’s connection with,, involvement in, and personal relationships with the Muslim world.

 

With that in mind, please read the speech below.  It is my belief that Muslim extremism is a grave threat to the future of our nation. If after reading this you disagree, please tell me what I am missing, and why am Obama presidency is nothing to be worried about. By the way, there are about 200 other reasons why we should be worried about Barack Obama as President and Commander-in-Chief.

Article reprint — Obama’s Mansion deal – money from Iraq

October 29, 2008

Did Saddam bagman help Obama buy mansion?

Rezko financier linked with late Iraqi tyrant
Posted: October 28, 2008
9:22 pm Eastern

© 2008 WorldNetDaily

Former Baathist official Nadhmi Auchi with cousin Saddam Hussein Just 23 days before a crooked fundraiser helped Sen. Barack Obama buy his Chicago mansion, a billionaire bagman for Saddam Hussein wired millions into the crook’s account.

“Barack Obama appears to have personally benefited from funds originating in Saddam Hussein’s regime,” said Mideast expert Daniel Pipes.

Former Iraqi official Nadhmi Auchi bankrolled his longtime friend and business partner, Syrian immigrant and Chicago slumlord Tony Rezko, who in turn bankrolled Obama’s political career before being convicted this year of fraud.

That much is known. What’s not known is whether any Auchi funds aided Obama’s 2005 purchase of a $1.65 million mock-Georgian mansion in the leafy Kenwood district of Chicago. On the same day, Rezko purchased an adjacent lot from the same seller.

In addition, Rezko personally toured the house with Obama before their same-day purchase of the adjoining parcels. He also advised Obama on negotiating his end of the deal.

(Story continues below)

Obama ended up buying his side of the property for $300,000 below the asking price, while Rezko, through his wife, paid full price, $625,000, for the adjacent vacant lot.

Just three weeks earlier, Rezko – who at the time was under indictment and virtually bankrupt – received a $3.5 million wire transfer from Auchi, his “close friend” and partner, who smuggled weapons to Saddam’s regime.

Illinois State Senate President Emil Jones Jr. and his protege Barack Obama
A year before their real estate deal, Obama, fresh off his U.S. Senate win, attended a dinner that Rezko hosted honoring Auchi at the Four Seasons hotel in downtown Chicago. There, he met with Rezko, as well as his career mentor, Emil Jones, president of the Illinois senate, where Obama had previously served. Jones also is close to Auchi.

While Obama acknowledges attending the 2004 event, he claims having no memory of meeting Auchi there.

“I just don’t recall,” he said, even though the dinner was held in Auchi’s honor and Rezko had invited Obama to meet him and other friends.

What’s more, Rezko that same year had held another reception for Auchi, this time at his mansion; and according to court testimony in Rezko’s trial, both Barack and Michelle Obama attended the reception and met Auchi.

Auchi at the time was under investigation by the U.S. government. The Pentagon had accused him of perpetrating fraud in Iraq, and he was subsequently barred from future entry into the U.S.

Auchi turned to Rezko to lobby several politicians in an unsuccessful bid to reinstate his visa.

It’s not clear if Obama, a vocal Iraq war critic, was one of those politicians. But the senator did intervene on behalf of another shady Iraqi official at Rezko’s request.

Emil Jones and Nadhmi Auchi
After Aiham Alsammarae was jailed in Iraq for fraud in 2006, Obama’s Senate office sought information from the State Department about his status and relayed it to his family living in Chicago.

Alsammarae, a dual Iraqi-U.S. citizen who donated the maximum $2,300 to Obama’s campaign, attended the same Four Seasons reception for Auchi attended by Obama.

A 2004 Pentagon report identified Auchi as an Iraqi billionaire and global arms dealer “who behind the facade of legitimate business, served as Saddam Hussein’s principle international financial manipulator and bag man.”

The report states that “significant and credible evidence has been developed that Nadhmi Auchi has engaged in unlawful activities,” such as bribing “foreign governments and individuals prior to Operation Iraqi Freedom to turn opinion against the American-led mission to remove Saddam Hussein.”

Obama and top fundraiser Tony Rezko, a business partner and close friend of Auchi
He also helped “arrange for significant theft from the U.N. Oil-for-Food Program to smuggle weapons and dual-use technology into Iraq.”

Since October 2002, Obama has publicly opposed Operation Iraqi Freedom, which ousted Saddam Hussein. Auchi was a cousin of the executed dictator.

As for Rezko, the Obama campaign says the presidential hopeful was unaware of his dirty dealings and has returned more than $200,000 in donations tied to him.

Obama has confessed misjudgment only in the subsequent purchase of a 10-foot strip of the adjacent S. Greenwood Avenue property from Rezko, not the original seemingly coordinated purchase of the parcels with Rezko on the same day, which political watchdog groups have called a “sweetheart deal.”

Plot of land Rezko bought on same day Obama bought $1.65 million Georgian mansion next door
Obama described his subsequent $105,000 transaction a “boneheaded move,” only because Rezko was under indictment at the time for bribing elected officials and other influence-peddling charges. He denies they coordinated their bids on the adjoining parcels so the Obamas could buy their dream home at a discount.

And his campaign has reiterated that Obama has no recollection of meeting Iraqi bagman Auchi, while adding that Auchi does not recall meeting Obama.

“There are no skeletons with this guy,” Obama foreign policy adviser Samantha Power has insisted regarding her candidate. “He’s clean.”

Coincidentally, Obama’s national campaign co-chairman, Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. of Chicago, also purchased a mansion under similarly mysterious circumstances.

Obama tied to Iraqi government fraud?

ELECTION 2008

Hundreds of millions in deals with candidate’s associates

By Aaron Klein

Antoin “Tony” Rezko
JERUSALEM – Sen. Barack Obama’s office engaged in six months of negotiations with a company controlled by convicted criminal Tony Rezko to lobby the U.S. government to push through a nixed $50 million contact to train Iraqi security personnel at a site in Chicago.

The contract was awarded to Rezko’s company while Aiham Alsammarae, a long-time, close Rezko friend and a contributor to Obama’s campaign, served as Iraq’s U.S.-appointed electricity minister, the senator’s office confirms.

Rezko was a major Obama fundraiser and associate for two decades.

Alsammarae also awarded another Rezko-controlled operation as part of a $150 million contract to construct a 250-megawatt electricity plant in Iraq.

Alsammarae later was arrested by Iraqi authorities for bilking the coalition government out of some $650 million. He was sprung from prison under questionable circumstances in 2006 and escaped from Iraq, where he is still wanted for questioning with regard to major financial crimes.

The information raises questions into the nature of Obama’s relationship with multiple deals made by Iraq’s Electricity Ministry while Alsammarae was in charge. Obama has ties to Alsammarae and to the recipients of several of the massive contracts Alsammarae handed out.

(Story continues below)

While he was the electric czar of Iraq for the Coalition Provisional Authority from mid-2003 until mid-2005, Alsammarae granted the $50 million contract to train Iraqis to guard electrical plants to Companion Security, a start-up reportedly controlled by Rezko, his partner Daniel Mahru and a front man, Daniel Frawley, a former Chicago policeman. Frawley has multiple civil court judgments against him for his alleged failure to pay millions in outstanding bills.

Aiham Alsammarae (PBS.org)
The plan was to fly about 150 Iraqis to a site in Illinois for security training, which reportedly would include the use of AK-47 assault rifles.

Obama’s office did not reply to repeated WND requests for comment. A working number could not be found for Frawley.

Alsammarae did not return WND calls left on his cell phone and at his voicemail at his KCI Consultants firm in Chicago.

The contract with Rezko’s group was signed April 18, 2005, one month before Alsammarae left his governmental post.

But Iraq’s new electricity minister aborted the deal, complaining the Companion contract was too expensive, according to a U.S. embassy official in Baghdad who spoke earlier this year to the Chicago Sun-Times.

In the spring of 2006, Frawley and his company reportedly reached out to Chicago politicians, including Obama and Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, to bring pressure to revive the deal, arguing the business would be good for the state.

Blagojevich’s office and Illinois Homeland Security reportedly helped by offering an Army depot in Savanna in western Illinois as a site for Companion to conduct the Iraqi training.

Frawley then reportedly reached out to Obama, who in 2006 was a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, engaging in six months of dialogue petitioning the Illinois senator to write a letter introducing the Rezko-connected Companion company to senior Iraqi officials. Frawley met with Seamus Ahern, who runs Obama’s Moline, Ill., office.

But Obama, who has denied doing political favors for Rezko, later claimed he did not known Rezko was involved with Companion.

Obama’s office declined to help about the same time Rezko was indicted on charges of fraud.

Obama’s spokesman Ben LaBolt said, “The Senate staff had two meetings, one conference call and sporadically e-mailed with representatives of Companion Security about their request for Sen. Obama to write a letter introducing the company to senior officials in the Iraqi government.”

LaBolt said Obama declined to help in the Companion deal, because “that is not the kind of action Sen. Obama usually takes for individual companies, and our staff concluded on that basis to decline the requested assistance.”

LaBolt claimed Obama was not aware of Rezko’s connections to the security firm.

LaBolt did not explain how Frawley could have survived the routine vetting of a petitioner by the U.S. Senate office staff when it was a matter of public record that his company was controlled by Rezko.

The nixed Iraqi government deal opens questions into the nature of Obama’s relationship with agreements made by various associates with Iraq’s Electricity Ministry while Alsammarae was in charge. Obama has ties to both Alsammarae and to the recipients of several of the massive contracts he handed out.

Alsammarae, a dual Iraqi-U.S. citizen, arrived in U.S. in 1976 and currently lives in Chicago and travels frequently to Amman, Jordan, where he maintains a residence despite still being wanted in Iraq.

Alsammarae has described himself as a close friend to Rezko, a former top confidante and fundraiser for Obama. Alsammarae and Rezko had been friends for nearly 30 years, since the two were classmates at the Illinois Institute of Technology.

WND reported Alsammarae posted more than one-third of Rezko’s jail bond earlier this year, putting up as surety his $1.9 million Chicago home and two other properties.

Alsammarae contributed the maximum allowable donation of $2,300 to Obama’s campaign, sending money six times in January, February and March. Obama donated the funds to charity in April, only after Alsammarae posted bond for Rezko.

As electricity minister, Alsammarae not only granted a Rezko firm the $50 million security training contract but also approved a contract with another Rezko company, Rezmar, to construct a 250-megawatt plant in the Kurdistani city of Chamchamal. That contract was granted to both Rezmar and the London-based General Mediterranean Holdings, which is headed by British billionaire Nadhmi Auchi, who was also involved in a large real estate deal in Chicago with Rezko and others around Obama.

Auchi, a former Baathist who left Iraq in 1979, was convicted in 2003 in a French court of corruption in an oil deal that stretched back to the Saddam Hussein regime. Auchi denies the charges.

Auchi could not be reached for comment

In another connection to Obama, when Alsammarae was jailed in Iraq in 2006, his Chicago-based family reportedly contacted Obama’s U.S. Senate office for information. Obama’s office passed a written request to the State Department about Alsammarae Oct. 16, 2006, and received a reply from the U.S. consul in Iraq about a week later. The reply was forwarded by Obama’s staff to Alsammarae’s daughter.

It wasn’t immediately clear how Alsammarae landed his electricity ministry job. He was an outspoken critic of the U.S. military campaign in Iraq and publicly has supported Hussein.

In August 2000, Alsammarae, a board member of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, appeared in Washington alongside celebrities such as Martin Sheen and British politician George Galloway at a demonstration against U.N. sanctions on Saddam’s regime.

Even as late as last month, Alsammarae delivered a press conference stating he hoped the insurgency in Iraq “would continue [against U.S. occupation] and avenges the Iraqi people.”

American political insiders suggest Alsammarae received major insider help in securing his U.S.-brokered Iraqi government position. Unconfirmed reports point to Alsammarae’s previous Baathist background as being a factor in his elevated status in post-Saddam Iraq.

Alammarae was accused in a federal filing during the Rezko federal corruption trial of being the recipient of a $1 million bribe from Rezko to deliver the original Companion deal. No charges have yet been filed, though the accuser is Daniel Mahru, the former partner in the Companion deal.

Alsammarae was the only cabinet-level Iraqi official to be convicted and jailed for misusing money during his time in office. In April, Alsammarae made an appearance on CBS’s “60 Minutes” to defend his troubled conduct in Iraq and in the U.S.

An Interpol warrant for his arrest, issued in 2007 at the request of Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri Kamal al-Maliki’s government, was taken down after Alsammarae was forgiven for some parts of his conduct by an Iraqi legislative initiative, according to Arabic-language Iraqi criminal court documents obtained by WND and translated into English. Alsammarae has been warned by the Maliki government not to return to Iraq. Other charges are still pending, and Alsammarae has been warned by the Maliki government not to return to Iraq.

Obama and Friends Party like it’s 2003 !!

October 28, 2008

A day does not go by that more damning information comes out.  Today the buzz is about the LA Times, who has admitted to having a ‘video tape’ on the happenings at a party in 2003 in Chicago, where friends gathered to bid a fond adieu to Rashid Khalidi.  And who is Khalidi you ask?  Well, he is an infamous anti-American, anti-Zionist, former PLO, aide and spokesperson for terrorist Yasser Arafat.  Khalidi is ‘best friends’ with William Ayres and his wife, and close pals with the Obama family (even babysitting for the Obamas). 

The LA Times has refused to make public the tape – indicating it would be unfair to Obama, and should not be regarded as relevant at this time.  The soiree. thrown by the AAAN (Arab American Action Network, a group founded by Khalidi)  was grand, including entertainment, music, a host of stellar guests, such as the Obamas, Ayres, and other prominents from Chicago’s radical left community.

Even when Obama claims no personal awareness of Ayres, they both donated money ($75,000) to AAAN, and the 3 couples have socialized together in each other’s homes, as well as at social functions.  That night Obama gave a speech honoring his friend Khalidi, praising him and his accomplishments.  Khalidi was about to embark on a new job in NYC, at where else, Columbia U.  He has since turned his course (Middle East Affairs) into a program promoting anti-Semitism. 

AAAN is a non profit that  promotes hatred of Israel, Palestinian terrorism, and believes that Israel is an illigitimate nation. 

The LA Times wrote of the party in 2003, and I am duplicating it here, since the goings on at the party and the attitudes of those in attendence are reflected in the LA Times piece.

“It was a celebration of Palestinian culture — a night of music, dancing and a dash of politics. Local Arab Americans were bidding farewell to Rashid Khalidi, an internationally known scholar, critic of Israel and advocate for Palestinian rights, who was leaving town for a job in New York.

A special tribute came from Khalidi’s friend and frequent dinner companion, the young state Sen. Barack Obama. Speaking to the crowd, Obama reminisced about meals prepared by Khalidi’s wife, Mona, and conversations that had challenged his thinking.

His many talks with the Khalidis, Obama said, had been “consistent reminders to me of my own blind spots and my own biases. . . . It’s for that reason that I’m hoping that, for many years to come, we continue that conversation — a conversation that is necessary not just around Mona and Rashid’s dinner table,” but around “this entire world.”…

[T]he warm embrace Obama gave to Khalidi, and words like those at the professor’s going-away party, have left some Palestinian American leaders believing that Obama is more receptive to their viewpoint than he is willing to say.

Their belief is not drawn from Obama’s speeches or campaign literature, but from comments that some say Obama made in private and from his association with the Palestinian American community in his hometown of Chicago, including his presence at events where anger at Israeli and U.S. Middle East policy was freely expressed.

At Khalidi’s 2003 farewell party, for example, a young Palestinian American recited a poem accusing the Israeli government of terrorism in its treatment of Palestinians and sharply criticizing U.S. support of Israel. If Palestinians cannot secure their own land, she said, “then you will never see a day of peace.”

One speaker likened “Zionist settlers on the West Bank” to Osama bin Laden, saying both had been “blinded by ideology.”

Obama adopted a different tone in his comments and called for finding common ground. But his presence at such events, as he worked to build a political base in Chicago, has led some Palestinian leaders to believe that he might deal differently with the Middle East than … his opponents for the White House….

At Khalidi’s going-away party in 2003, the scholar lavished praise on Obama, telling the mostly Palestinian American crowd that the state senator deserved their help in winning a U.S. Senate seat. “You will not have a better senator under any circumstances,” Khalidi said.”

Here again we have the Obamas socializing with people who share anti-American sentiments, anti-Israel hatred, and we are expected to believe that Obama shares no such attitudes or feelings?   Khalidi was quoted by the LA Times as expressing his understanding that Obama needed to verbalize his support of Israel and Jewish Americans in order to get elected as US President.

It is no wonder the LA Times has the video tape under wraps – it would be explosive information – the ultimate October Surprise.  As it is few will know about the party either, since it was not covered much at the time back in ’03, and people are not talking about Khalidi (though they should be). 

The sad thing is that Obama has managed to convince the majority of Jewish Americans that he supports Israel and its cause, when he is tied in so many ways and on so many levels with Palestine and its supporters (such as Hamas). 

Obama has crafted talking points and presentation suited to each of the target groups, carefully constructing a message that he knows will resonate with each special interest audience.  The words apparently are empty – designed for impact and to sway support but without meaning.  How will Jews around the world feel when Obama’s denies support for Israel, and in fact orchestrates support for Hamas and Palenstinian terrorism. 

Could this get any more sad and depressing?  Apparently so, since every day there is more to report.  I wish I had never started down this path.  It is demoralizing!

YOUR 401K – where it may well be headed

October 28, 2008

If you have a 401K you are not going to like this one.

As with most everything about Obama, this tidbit made a tiny corner of the news – a passing comment that caught my eye. 

Obama and the Democrats want to seize control of your 401K – take your money and issue you bonds at a value equal to pre-market explosion (August).  You would be required to pay 5% of your paycheck into your bond fund.  And the government has use of your money to do with as they choose. 

When you retire (the age for retirement will be extended) you will be given a single check for the amount you had, plus THREE % interest compounded annually, plus the 5% you were required to put into the bond fund.

ZIP – that’s it folks.  That is your retirement.  No more investing, no more employer matching funds.  You get bonds, and with a good deal of luck, they may be able to pay on them years hence.  Or not.

And of course, if you have money in the market and determine that you should sell, because of market activities, or you need some money in your retirement – you will be HIT and HIT HARD with capital gains taxes in the neighborhood of 37% !

Now, does this not sound like you can’t win – no matter what you do, no matter how hard you work and save?  It sure does ot me.  And it sure as hell sounds like Marxism too.

2009 – What will YOU get for 2/3 BILLION dollars?

October 26, 2008

It is pretty simple and straight forward :

 

1)   Tax increases on everything

2)   Confiscation of all guns

3)   National health care (it will be a mess and bury us financially)

4)   Increased lobbying of Congress reaching levels of excess

5)   More pork barrel spending – aka ear-marks well hidden in every bill.

6)   “Fairness Doctrine” – heard of it?  It’s a doozy – intended to shut down talk radio (there shall be NO criticism of THE ONE) – a venue in which Conservatives are able to have a voice to counter-balance MSM.  Free speech?  ONLY if you are nice to Obamasiah.

7)   Elimination of secret ballots in the workplace – intended to swell the ranks of labor unions, increase the base for more dues, and provide a much larger and more powerful lobbying force against Congress.

8)   More new laws put on the books to further hamper and curtail freedoms and make things even more combersome and toxic

9)   Radical changes to education that will do nothing to elevate our kids’ competiveness or competence.

10)              More regulations imposed on all businesses making it harder to expand, make a profit

11)              Disdain and contempt for ordinary ‘folks’ – it is all about Ivy League, the Arts, and mysterious organizations that support “progressive” causes and the ‘inner circle’ of intelligentsia.   

12)               Out of control spending by the Trifecta of Pork  (Reid, Pelosi, Obama)

13)  The economy falling far lower and remaining there for many years.

14)  Wall Street dropping to 1700

15)  Censoring widespread

16)  Trends and events that are going to look a lot like 21st Century Marxism

17)  Increased government (bodies, agencies)

18)  Questionable people in key positions with at the least, dubious connections and background

19)  Global crisis –

20)  SAME DAY voter registration and voting – NO verification of identity, status

21)  Massive voter fraud (see Acorn become an even bigger influence in all 50 states)

22)  Sometime in a 3-year timeframe, civil war in this country as people come to terms with what is really going on

23)  Proliferation of 501C4 organizations that operate outside the law, in secret, with hidden agendas and no accountability.

24)  Increased gas prices – they have wanted  to keep prices high so Americans would reduce consumption to avoid new production.

25)  Nationalization of your 401K – yup you heard it here – they will take your  money, give you govt. bonds, pay you 3% interest, and when you retire (if you ever can) you’ll get one check for the total including the 3% interest.  Big whoop!

 

 

            

 

There is a list – for starters.  This is a minor list but it will affect everyone and likely in ways we can’t yet imagine.

OBAMASIAH ROYAL CELEBRATION

October 25, 2008

The economy is in the toilet, people are losing their jobs, costs of everything are going up, the world of economics is doom and gloom and predictions are for worse times coming, and and economy numbers that will drop further.

The mainstream media (MSM) is all over Palin for the RNC getting her clothing to wear, while giving yet another PASS to Biden for his outrageous comments at a Fund Raising event recently.  Loose lips sink ships and if only in this case!  But little has been made of Biden’s comments 1) about Obama being tested within 6 months of taking office in a global situation; and 2) making decisions that most may think are wrong, but aren’t; and 3) we are not going to like the economy next year, but things will get better.  What a great support for his ‘leader’.

But MSM did not give much attention to this matter, instead opting to make a huge stink about Palin’s wardrobe.  No one mentioned that of all candidates, she is not a millionaire or has a large annual income, or that life in Alaska is highly casual in comparison to the campaign trail.

So with all of the financial woes we have now and anticipated for months to come, Obama plans his gala event in Chicago.  It is going to cost an unprecendented amount for a mere election night celebration, so much that the poor guy can’t cut it with his $700 million campaign war chest, so he is demanding for more money to cover the tab from the MEDIA!!!!

Yes, he is charging all media for the position of coverage, internet, phone service, closeness to podium, photography and after-party.  Prices range from $700 to $2100 (save for the party, which they are not divulging).  When has the media been charged to cover an event?  NEVER !!  And this of the wealth of MSM darlings who are devoted to Obamasiah?  Some thank you from Obama! 

And the tab?  WOW – For starters, $2 million for security and cleanup (and the campaign is providing emergency medical services for those who are likely to faint from the excitement).  Then there is the ‘staging’, lighting, music, etc.  Plus the indoor, by invitation only party, costs for which are not being disclosed!   City spokesperson Jennifer Martinez with Chicago’s OEM, compared the plans as being like what was done for the Pope John Paul in 1979. 

It should be noted that the location for this event, Grant Park, the site of the riots at the Democratic Convention in 1968 – where the Chicago SEVEN instigated the horrible riots, for which they were put on trial – a gang connected with the Black Panthers, CDS, Weathermen Underground etc.  Poignant, and not a little ironic! 

OBAMA and Hawaii

October 25, 2008

Has anyone seen video news coverage of Obama in Hawaii this weekend ?  I saw him walking on a sidewalk, obviously being trailed by a reporter in an auto videoing him.  Obama was wearing sun glasses but kept turning his head quickly to see if he was being watched.  Soon an SUV drove up, several men got out, and Obama got in.  No big news about this – but for one thing.  The men (one would assume they are secret service) were not secret service.  They were ‘locals’ in Hawaiian shirts, burly, and looked more like thugs.  Secret Service are ALWAYS in suits with ear pieces and sun glasses – ALWAYS no matter where in the world they are if on duty.  These men were not secret service – period!  WHY?

The men who exited the SUV essentially blocked the car with the cameraman by walking down the middle of the street, as the SUV sped off with Obama inside behind darkened windows. 

Perhaps no big deal, but in all honesty, I believe everything Obama does is calculated and has meaning.  Where were the Secret Service guys and why weren’t they with Obama?  I can speculate, as can you – And wouldn’t you think Obama would be at his dear Toot’s bedside for the whole day he was in Hawaii?  He spent an hour or so the evening he arrived, and again the next morning – and then what?  How did he spend his time on Friday, and why were not the secret service guys with him?

Obama citizenship –

October 24, 2008

In late August Phillip Berg, attorney in PA and former Attorney General of PA, filed a lawsuit against Obama, demanding certified documentation of birth.  The case is being heard by a PA court, and no ruling has yet been made.  Obama, the DNC, the FEC have all been served.  Berg was made aware of the issues with Obama’s birth by a lawyer from Texas who had done research on the matter.  Since that time several people have volunteered to work with Berg on moving this case forward.

Note the timing on this – Berg/staff are awaiting a decision, but within the last week Obama’s attorney filed papers with the court to demand all records about Obama be sealed.  As people await a legal decision (which may prompt the case going to the US Supreme Court), Obama makes a dash to Hawaii.  As noted before, his grandmother is elderly, and he claims she is in serious condition and he could not wait to get over there.  Why then did not he take his family with him?  He left Thursday morning and will arrive in Hawaii tonight late – leaving one business day in Hawaii, and then returns to the US on Saturday!  I find the timing highly suspect to say the least.  Why not go on Friday and come back Sunday night? 

IF Obama has nothing to hide, why petition the court, Harvard, Columbia, and the Secy of State of Hawaii to seal all documents relating to Obama?  That suggests (no, SCREAMS) foul play. 

Berg is going to need financial support if he has to file with and appear before the Supreme Court (such cases are enormously expensive):  Help him out by going to:  http://www.obamacrimes.com/

Crime addendum – and the beat goes on, and on, and on

October 23, 2008

To continue the convoluted web of the Obama connections:

George Soros, creator of the “Shadow Party”, put in over $14 million to launch the ‘party’.  Other major contributors include billionaire Peter Lewis, and Jane Fonda (each putting in millions).  This is a ‘front’ for the “527’s” we keep hearing about, but remain in the background.  They are the sources of soft-money fund raising. 

Lewis is apparently an active pot user in his 80s, and has spent millions of dollars promoting marijuana legalization (in Oregon, NEV., CA., etc), among other organizations like ACLU.  Soros shares the passion to legalize marijuana. 

Soros wanted to disrupt the 2000 Conventions (both parties), and brought in Arianna Huffington to ‘host’ Shadow conventions in LA and Phil. at the same time as the real conventions, for the purpose of drawing media coverage away from the conventions.  Huffington now is a voice of LIberal Left and on the constant attack against McCain, but especially Palin.

Soros became good friends of the Clinton’s during the Clinton years in office.  Clinton sent Soros to Russia and elsewhere in the ‘new frontier’ of Eastern Europe, and during that time Soros made a vast fortune with the help of Clinton, Gore and Lawrence Summers – junk bond deals, forming privitazation of industries.  Soros takes credit for orchestrating coups in Georgia, Slovakia, and Croatia, and did so by creating a ‘shadow government’ that he had in place to take over at the right time.

In his association with Hillary Clinton ‘they’ discovered they were kindred spirits of sorts, in that both believed US interests should be placed second to global (in areas of economics, laws, sovereignty), and both want global taxation, and redistribution of wealth globally (DUH – look where we are now).  Both also have very negative feelings about Israel.  He dedicated himself and his money to getting her into the White House.

According to an article by Richard Poe, “When Soros targets a country for “regime change,” he begins by creating a shadow government — a fully formed government-in-exile, ready to assume power when the opportunity arises. The Shadow Party Soros has built in America greatly resembles those he has created in other countries, prior to instigating a coup.”

And now the plot thickens yet more.  The cornerstone of the “Shadow Party” is the Center for American Progress (CAP) that was started in 2003, and exists as a leftist ‘think tank’ with Hillary Clinton at the helm, along with John Podesta (formerly in the Clinton Admin).  This organization combines money from Soros, organization and concept from Ickes, and leadership by Clinton (and Podesta).  It’s offices are in Washington DC.  (this info from UPI)

Does this matter?  YESSSSSSSSSS  On staff and in membership are dozens of former Clinton Admin. Secretaries, Under Secretaries, White House staff and advisors, speech writers, researchers, national security people etc.  All of these people are around to serve as instant spokespeople to any comments, interviews made by conservatives.  This collection of people and mission, initiated by Soros, is said to look much like the ‘shadow governments’ he puts into place before orchestrating a coup abroad. 

Racism or just Stupidity?

October 22, 2008

If you don’t think this race is about race, perhaps you should think again! 

Listen to this audio – it is quite stunning, and very telling about what is going on.

http://www.breitbart.tv/?p=194983

Does this mean that most blacks are voting for Obama because he is Obama claims to be black?  Certainly decisions don’t seem to have much of anything to do with the issues.  How would these same people vote if they knew Obama was in fact not African Black, but black Arab? 

I think this audio clip as well as many ‘average citizen’ interviews on the street are indicative of a severe lack of knowledge about and understand of the issues.  It also seems many people, otherwise unaware, are voting based on race.  At this point I don’t think anyone can forecast what will happen behind voting booth curtains. 

Right now it is PC to indicate support for Obama.  But all the swirling negative information flying around Obama will surely make people pause and contemplate the many lingering questions.  In addition, so many Obama supporters are so vehement and in some cases rabid in their support, they won’t listen, or they are so ‘in your face’ it becomes futile to say anything.  I think that is why there are so many blogs on the Internet that enable people to express their frustrations and feelings about Obama. 

One thing that people need to be concerned about is sensoring.  There are many members of the national media who, after writing or presenting a less than flattering opinion about Obama, they are harshly dealt with, and restricted from further contact with the candidate.  This is alarming – when a member of the media or a citizen can’t criticize or question a presidential candidate (much less a President) we are moving ever more quickly to Third World status where dictators determine the fate of dissenters.

Stupidity? I certainly hope not – there is simply too much at stake!

The Selling of the Big White House

October 21, 2008

Most reports about the JFK campaign indicate that his father Joe Kennedy ‘bought’ him the election.  It is certainly possible.  We came to know a great deal more about the Kennedy’s in more recent years, including Joe Kennedy’s determination to see his son in the White House. 

 

There are many questions about a number of former Presidents  and how they achieved their position, not the least of which is LBJ.  But there is no historical comparison to what is going on now. 

 

Today we have Barack Hussein Obama – a man who adamantly denies most of what has been written about him, despite the facts, and who for some reason, won’t touch, and is unwilling to acknowledge that he is not Black African but black Arab.  What has he to hide?

 

Today we have this man of many secrets, many contradictions, with negativity swirling around him who is the possible if not likely next President.  We have a man who has ‘raised’ over $600 million (over ½ billion dollars!) – and while the laws do not limit how much one can raise or spend, it is a mind-boggling amount for a campaign.  He and his campaign claim that “average Joe’s” have been contributing in amounts under $200.  But of course the numbers don’t gel!  He claims 2.5 million individual contributors, but over 600,000 entries (donation list) show donations in excess of $4250 (maximum allowed by individual), or in odd amounts rarely seen by any fund raiser – such as $ 983.52, or $1106.04.  Obama has refused to provide the Election Commission with the majority of details or names of contributors.   Most who have evaluated the minimal records provided indicate the numerous ‘odd’ entries suggest foreign donations being converted to dollars. 

 

US Election Law prohibits foreign donations.  US Election Law prohibits individual donations in excess of $4250.  US Election Law prohibits a non-natural-born citizen from running for US President. 

 

Mr. Obama, as has been reported by various media outlets and commentators, has direct ties to many people from the Middle East and Africa.  (note – many people do not realize that there are more Arab countries in Africa than there are Black African – check  your map). 

 

Obama’s long relationship with Kahalid Al Monsour is a pipeline to the Royal Family of Saudi Arabia, who has vast financial resources.  They are NOT friends of America.  They finance terrorist activities around the world, and support any action that will eliminate Israel. 

 

So, what if – what if  Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, Al Monsour’s business partner who Monsour counsels, and whom Obama knows – what if this prince has been funneling millions of dollars into the campaign???  It is now estimated that ‘foreign donations’ could be a low of $30 million to a high of $150 million.  That much money buys a lot of clout and influence!

 

Some media in the UK and even Africa, have indicated that Obama is nothing more than a puppet, whose strings are being pulled by one or more people/groups.  There is the feeling that his ‘credentials’ (of Black Arab father, Muslim, white mother), made him the perfect candidate to groom.  This all sounds like a conspiracy – but what if??

 

If Arab/Islamic nations wanted revenge, and/or control over the US, what better way to achieve it?  Foster crisis, up the oil prices to a gut-wrenching level, and put into place a man of mystery whose background is almost a blank slate.  A man who has been indoctrinated into communism, socialism, radicalism for his entire life – a perfect foil to offer up to the American people – young, nice looking, calm, serene, with a glibness that enables him to shoot from the hip.

 

But think about this –  if you KNEW you were going to win, would not that enable you to swagger with confidence, speak with calm confidence, and make outrageous promises?  In 2007, in front a group of ‘community organizer’ organizations such as Acorn, Obama told them (the video is on the Web and I paraphrase)   Before my inauguration I will travel the country to meet with you, get your input so you can help me craft a plan for my Administration”   The man was trailing the primary at that point. 

 

IF, as I suspect, we have sold out the White House – it is not a piece of real estate we have lost, but the Republic.  It is not just the house but our economy, way of life, and most of all FREEDOM.  The price of the White House is one we can’t afford to give up.

To save the Republic we must pull together and support McCain.  He is an open book, dedicated to preserving Democracy, and eliminating the waste and corruption – in Congress and on Wall Street.

 

America needs to truly VET Obama NOW – get all the rumors and questions clearly answered – not by way of Obama’s denials, but by reality of fact, figures, documents.  Meanwhile, John McCain and Sarah Palin can and will keep us safe and reform our government which desperately needs it.

 

As Joe Biden said this weekend at a fundraiser, (again paraphrased) – “Be assured that within 6 months, Obama, the next President will be tested with a major world crisis, one created, like the testing of John Kennedy.  Mark my words and remember this date when I tell you that a crisis of the next Administration is coming”

 

There is a red storm coming – can we afford to have an untried, untested man in office to manage it?  NO !

International experts are now talking about new military build-up in China, new moves by terrorists groups with indicators they are planning a much bigger attack than 9/11, and Russia is flexing Communist-like muscle.  We can’t afford a young inexperienced man to be ‘tested’ in such uncertain, dangerous times.

Is America Brain Dead? (or – just buried in denial?)

October 20, 2008

I just finished watching the second installment of the one-hour program about Obama.  I was happy they brought out some of the information I have found and written about, and even more grateful the program offered new information – the only person referenced I had not found out about is Frank Marshall Davis, communist, anti-American and life-long mentor to Obama. 

 

It is truly mind-boggling that there is anyone in this country who is not at the very least skeptical, more rightly, outraged and/or terrified – about Obama having been nominated, much less with a good shot at the Presidency!  How can Americans watch and listen to the many reports on Obama and not be afraid?  I simply do not understand – there has likely never been a time in our history when a candidate for President has had so much negative information surrounding him.  Never before has anyone been exposed for such radical beliefs and associations as Obama.  Never before has one with so little validation of their past campaigned much less been nominated.  We can’t even verify his birth place!  He refuses to say what hospital he was born in, or to provide a hospital-issued birth certificate! 

 

There is only one other president whose dark history should have prevented him from taking office, but the facts about him did not come out till he left office!  We have the advantage of knowledge, and numerous analysts, reporters, and private citizens have dug deep to find answers to the list of questions that persist about this man. 

 

I believe at first everyone was taken with his ‘presentation’ and words.  I know I was.  But when basic information was avoided, when questions were not answered, or when lies were given – why haven’t most Americans stopped and said WHAT?  It’s not all yet known but more than enough is known to make this man the most frightening threat to our democracy ever. 

 

My questions are – when did so many Americans turn socialist?  When did so many people start embracing Marxism?  When did so many of us lower our standards of evaluation and merit to accept scandal, radicalism, and lies as the benchmark upon which to choose?  When did experience become passé and inconsequential for a new President?  When did denial become the foundation of thought? 

 

The day will come – perhaps too late – when people will finally accept all that has been told as fact, and they will feel betrayed.  The day may come when their betrayal becomes outrage and they scream for justice.  But there will be no justice that can possibly match the deceit and betrayal, or the damage done. 

 

Contrary to Roosevelt’s comment, we DO have MUCH to FEAR besides FEAR – a long list actually:  mediocrity, Big Brother, loss of most all freedoms if not all, equality in reduction of quality of life, government providing (and government taking), radical thought prevailing over common sense, manipulation, control of communication, rampant crime, decline of education, inflation, out of control spending, increased taxes (yes, get real people), broken promises, and control of free speech (no criticism of the administration). 

 

In case this does not sound familiar, it is the state of Marxism – a ‘new’ form but more distasteful and disastrous!  I refer you to the Cloward Piven Strategy – google it – there you will find what is ahead (it is the common denominator between Obama and his buddies and favored organizations)

 

Rev. Wright  — preaches anti-Americanism, Obama in church for 20 years, close friends

Ralia Odinga – cousin, Kenyan Muslim and PM, murderer/terrorist

 

(photo of post-election violence, part of the genocide and terrorizing conducted by Odinga)

 

Frank Marshall Davis – Communist poet, radical anti-American and life-long mentor

Rezko – real estate developer in prison for fraud, forgery and more; from Middle East

Bill Ayres / Bernadine Dohrn — radical domestic terrorists with current radical agenda – Marxist – education agenda to promote radical racial activism, communist theory

Khalid Al Monsour – anti-American/anti-Jewish, tied to most heavy hitters in Middle East (former Black Panther, counsels Saudi Royal Family)  (aka Don Warden)

Rev. Pflager – radical pastor preaching anti-Americanism

Louis Farrakhan – anti-American/anti-Jewish, head of Nation of Islam

NUMEROUS staff employees who are members of the Nation of Islam (radical anti-American org)

Rashid Khalidi – former PLO and Arafat aide, praised by Obama as recently as 2003

Saul Alinsky – father of community organizer activism – wrote Rules for Radicals (see below)

Mohammed Hasan Chandoo – from Pakistan, wealthy, college roommate of Obama, now manages online donations for Obama

Percy Sutton – millionaire radical community activist in NY, helped get Obama into Harvard

Prince Alwaleed bin Talal – Saudi Royal – anti-American (blamed US for 9/11), offered $10 million to Giuliani with demands of US govt. Giuliani found repugnant; partner with Al Monsour, reported to have financially backed Obama (puppet?)

 

This is a partial list of people who have been in and around Obama some extended period of years, from 10 to 35.  They all share commonalities – radicalism, anti-Americanism, and layers of similar connections with others, as well as with each other.  I ask YOU – how many extreme radicals or anti-Americans do YOU KNOW?  How many do your friends know?  My guess is NONE.

 

It should be noted that there are over 2 million ‘donors’ that Obama has refused to disclose, with many oddities about the contributions (notably donations made in odd numbers such as $4102.36), which suggests conversion from foreign currency.  Some records have been investigated, and it is estimated that between $31 million and $64 million has come from foreign sources, and depending on other factors, it could be as much as $150 million.  You can bet that there would be many ‘strings’ attached to that foreign money.

 

While Alinsky died before Obama came to Chicago, Alinsky’s theories and agenda form the basis of the Black Panthers, SDS, American Communists and all other radical organizations.  In his prologue of Rules for Radicals he states:

 

“There’s another reason for working inside the system. Dostoevski said that taking a new step is what people fear most. Any revolutionary change must be preceded by a passive, affirmative, non-challenging attitude toward change among the mass of our people. They must feel so frustrated, so defeated, so lost, so futureless in the prevailing system that they are willing to let go of the past and change the future. This acceptance is the reformation essential to any revolution. To bring on this reformation requires that the organizer work inside the system, among not only the middle class but the 40 per cent of American families – more than seventy million people – whose income range from $5,000 to $10,000 a year [in 1971]. They cannot be dismissed by labeling them blue collar or hard hat. They will not continue to be relatively passive and slightly challenging. If we fail to communicate with them, if we don’t encourage them to form alliances with us, they will move to the right. Maybe they will anyway, but let’s not let it happen by default.”[4]

There is a nutshell is the core of Obama’s approach, making allowances for changes from 1971 to 2008.

Well, I guess if so many people are in such denial and vote this guy into office, then the country is getting what it deserves. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Obama’s Web of Association

October 19, 2008

Obama’s connections (some of them) have been discussed in a minimal way in various news media outlets.  Obama’s denials and explanations have been disengenuous at best – essentially he has lied!  But there are far more worrisome connections not mentioned, and a web of inter-connection that is disturbing.  The following information has been the result of many many hours of laborious research, verified within at least 2 sources. 

The following is a list of individuals and groups that are part of the Obama web, which is complex, spread wide and deep, with various people inter-connected with each other, and many with roots in Harvard (what has Harvard been teaching for the last 30 years?)

The early role of ACORN (previously known as NWRO) was to overload the welfare system with new applications, thus creating havoc and economic crisis.  Their belief was that if they could create chaos, they could attain power and inroads. 

1.    Deepak Bhargava (born in India, age – late 30s to early 40s, graduate of Harvard, radical activist, worked for Acorn at same time Obama did.  He is one of Acorn’s lobbyists involved in pushing certain Democrats to create the low/no income loans via Fannie and Freddie.  He directs an organization that has done work with minorities, financially supported by Robert Kennedy Jr., and is now active in ‘training’ immigrants to fight against interference of their illegal status.  He and his organization are involved with dozens of other similar organizations.

2.   George Wiley, in 60s a leader in the National Welfare Rights Org. (activists that invaded welfare offices often violently, threatening social workers), from which ACORN evolved with Wade Rathke who was also founder of Students for Democratic Society (supporting draft dodgers).  Wade has headed Acorn for over 3 decades, and has his hands into a vast array of other like organizations, including a national movement to STOP Wal-Mart from expanding.  While he espouses concern for workers and the underprivileged, his own vast number of workers have brought endless lawsuits against Acorn for abuse, threats, harassment, and retribution against those who have tried to organize themselves into their own labor union because of their low wages and no benefits.  Wade has dealt harshly with each such incident, despite lawsuits.  The first major center for Acorn was Chicago which remains one of its largest chapters.  It ‘trains’ community organizers, and it is where Obama both learned and instructed.

3.   William Ayres – former member of 60’ Students for Democratic Society, friend of Wade Rathke since then.  Tom Hayden also a member of SDS, and ally.  And it should be noted that Ayres has been a long-time friend and ally of Rev. Wright, as well as the Booths and others listed here.  Ayres is not an educational reformer, but possesses a radical view of how children’s minds should be manipulated.  He believes children should challenge authority (even parents), and that they should be taught how to thwart authority.  He promotes anti-American views and accounts of history.  He does not believe in standard teachings of history, math and English, favoring a program that let’s kids do whatever they want.  He also promotes activism as a part of his teachings.  Obama has relied on Ayres to advise in matters of education, and of course supported Ayres and his educational concepts by funneling money into various organizations Ayres favors.

4.   Citizen Action and Citizen Services – both organizations are ‘sub’ groups of Acorn, and go back in connection to Heather and Paul Booth – part of the SDS.  Citizen action gave Citizen Services just under $500,000 for “campaign consulting” while at the same time Obama gave the same Citizen Services $840,000, both to serve the onslaught of new voter registration. Nearly 300 ‘sub’ groups of Acorn are all listed at the same New Orleans address, despite claims by Obama and Acorn that such organizations are not connected.

5.   Saul Alinsky Mastermind behind ‘community organizers’ movement that started in Chicago during the Depression – his more radical concepts serve as a foundation for other radicals mentioned herein.

6.   Maude Hurde – President of Acorn, who has pronounced great pride in Acorn’s accomplishments in pushing for sub-prime loans by Freddie and Fannie.  She also submitted a demand to the Senate indicating exactly what she wanted the $700 billion to be used for (and at that time, Acorn was to receive 20% of any profits realized by the bailout).

7.   Richard Andrew Cloward and Frances Fox Piven – professors in the 60s of Sociology at Columbia U.  Their teachings, known as the “Cloward Piven Strategy” have served as the basic foundation of the Ayres/Acorn/Obama philosophy, and the actions of hundreds of allied organizations.  The philosophy:  seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse.”  “Poor people can advance only when “the rest of society is afraid of them,”

When pressed to honor every word of every law and statute, every Judaeo-Christian moral tenet, and every implicit promise of the liberal social contract, human agencies inevitably fall short. The system’s failure to “live up” to its rule book can then be used to discredit it altogether, and to replace the capitalist “rule book” with a socialist one.

It is the CP Strategy that has been the guideline of Acorn from the beginning when turning out masses of welfare applicants.  It is at the core of their strategy to add hundreds of thousands to voter registration, creating chaos. 

One can now wonder about the string of events over the last few years, to swell the economy with bad mortgages that would create economic crisis and the threat to a capitalistic society.  There would appear to be a strong connection, in philosophy as well as action.

Their article called for “cadres of aggressive organizers” to use “demonstrations to create a climate of militancy.” Intimidated by threats of black violence, politicians would appeal to the federal government for help. Carefully orchestrated media campaigns, carried out by friendly, leftwing journalists, would float the idea of “a federal program of income redistribution,” in the form of a guaranteed living income for all — working and non-working people alike.

SOUND FAMILIAR?  Note:  the NRWO with Wiley was the first effort of Cloward and Piven to begin their revolution.

“The flooding succeeded beyond Wiley’s wildest dreams,” writes Sol Stern in the City Journal.  “From 1965 to 1974, the number of single-parent households on welfare soared from 4.3 million to 10.8 million

 Giuliani accused the militant scholars by name, citing their 1966 manifesto as evidence that they had engaged in deliberate economic sabotage of New York.

8.    George Soros  Hungarian-born Jewish immigrant to the UK, later to the US.  Billionaire (hedge funds) supporter of left movements.  He adamantly believes in socialized medicine due to his experience of having a broken leg treated for free in England, while the Jewish community did not make such an offer.  He is now anti-Jewish and pro socialist. 

Soros hates Bush, and put up  $50 million (raised another $25 million) to defeat Bush in 04.  He donates millions to MoveOn.org (liberal organization that is part Annenberg).  Soros hosted a fund raising event for Obama in his 2004 campaign for ILL legislature.  They have met many times, and Soros continues to back Obama.  He is supportive of Hamas, against Israel.  He gives enormous financial support to dozens of leftist organizations including ACLU, Acorn, Amnesty Int., and several organizations that support illegal immigrants, open borders, and unlimited immigration.  Soros continually exhibits anti-American rhetoric and attitude, and is responsible for the ad calling General Petraeus (General Betray Us) and the numerous campaigns of character assassination of Republicans.  Soros invests billions into political efforts to sway the Senate, public opinion, activism – some regard him as owning the Democratic Party lock stock and barrel.  

He spends a good deal of time orchestrating foreign public opinion AGAINST the US – writing articles, giving interviews, funding propaganda campaigns etc.  He seeks to get the US to stop further action against those who are involved in jihad, and to sever the alliance between Israel and the US. 

9.    Acorn – Much has already been written about Acorn, but it springs from, or includes associations with all the above people.  In the early 90s, and I quote from DiscovertheNetwork.org, “ACORN, Project Vote and Human SERVE — set to work lobbying energetically for the so-called Motor-Voter law, which Bill Clinton ultimately signed in 1993. The Motor-Voter bill is largely responsible for swamping the voter rolls with “dead  wood” — invalid registrations signed in the name of deceased, ineligible or non-existent people –– thus opening the door to the unprecedented  levels of voter fraud and “voter disenfranchisement” claims that followed in subsequent elections.”

“The new “voting rights” coalition combines mass voter registration drives –– typically featuring high levels of fraud –– with systematic intimidation of election officials in the form of frivolous lawsuits, unfounded charges of “racism” and “disenfranchisement,” and “direct action” (street protests, violent or otherwise). Just as they swamped America’s welfare offices in the 1960s, Cloward-Piven devotees now seek to overwhelm the nation’s understaffed and poorly policed electoral system. Their tactics set the stage for the Florida recount crisis of 2000, and have introduced a level of fear, tension and foreboding to U.S. elections heretofore encountered mainly in Third World countries.”

Over the last 15 years Acorn has been involved in untold lawsuits from various states, regarding charges of fraud in registration and voting.  Now, 2 weeks before we vote, Acorn is once again overloading key states with fraudulent registration forms – forms they have had and sat on for the last year or more.  600,000 in one state, 200,000 in another; more than 1 million so far.

It should be noted that Acorn, with the help of key Senators (Dodd, Reid, Obama and others) arranged a deal with the government whereby they are paid (handsomely) to create low income housing, or to fix up old structures for low income residents.  Their deal enables them to hold the title to the properties and without oversight, they require the ‘owner’ to invest sweat equity into the building or remodeling.  Once done and they move in, they are required to pay Acorn monthly for the home (that the government already paid them for).  If they default, they walk away and Acorn remains the owner of the house. 

With so much money surrounding the Democrats overall campaigning in the US – most of which we don’t even know about, there is more than enough money to throw at the ‘problem’ areas, people, etc. 

10.    Jennifer Brunner, Secy of State, Ohio – regarded as the most partisan politician in Ohio, she has been in office for almost 2 years, but involved in state voting issues for several years.  She had promised to make sure the state did not have another voting day crisis as they did in 2000 and 2004.  However, she reversed various orders by her predecessor, and had created a variety of rules and procedures to hamper the process rather than relieve it.  She has received ‘consultation’ from Acorn (big surprise), and is presently not allowing absentee ballots for McCain to be counted, because they misprinted an extra check box on their form.  Several people in the state indicate that her actions have been taken directly mar and hamper the upcoming election day, with unquestionable favor toward the Democratic party.

11.  Mike Klonsky –  – he is in his 60s, a friend of Bill Ayres, is co-founder of the Small School Project in Chicago with Bill Ayres. Of course that is the same “project” that Obama funded (in 1997) while he and Ayres were on the Annenberg Challenge board. Klonsky is a lifetime Communist – his father was arrested for his Communist work in the 1950s. Mike Klonsky has been the ‘guest’ of the Mao government in Communist China on several occasions, counseling them on how to ‘win’ against America.

 

This is by no means the whole list – but it is (I believe) sufficient to reflect accurately on just who Obama is, what his beliefs are, how he operates, and who he has surrounded himself with over the last 25 years.

Add to this complex network, the associations with Odinga, Hamas, Al Monsour and others, and it is a disturbing collection with an obvious agenda. 

(2006 – Obama in Kenya campaigning for Ralia Odinga) 

 

In addition to known associations, we have a situation where Obama has raised hundreds of millions dollars.  Already seen in computer records under the small ($250 and under) donations, are bogus names (something like “wpwe ablvetu”).  He has refused to release a list of major donors and his donation program online is handled by his 2 school chums from Pakistan.  There is a STRONG indication that a great deal of money has come in to that online area from Middle East sources. 

Obama hides most of his associations, but of those exposed, he is non-apologetic.  The most alarming aspect of this ‘list’ is that they are all aligned in a radical philosophy, with ties to Cloward and Piven, and Soros.  These people have a strong agenda that has become a manifesto followed to the letter by dozens of organizations, notably Acorn.  Even Obama’s campaign and comments seem aligned with the teachings of Cloward and Piven. 

Based on the philosophy of these two, and the actions of this list (people and organizations) should be cause for everyone to stop and re-assess their thinking about Obama.  Acorn vehemently denies wrong-doing, but they are at the absolute CORE of 20 years of wrong-doing, including their manipulation of our government to create the explosion of our economy and the housing debacle.  Look at their beginnings, practices of intimidation and violence, manipulation, and how they adhere to the Cloward Piven Strategy and you have a company reeking of corruption and intent to bring down America as a capitalistic nation. 

We have EVERYTHING we ‘know’ and ‘believe’ at risk – as well as our futures, security, and FREEDOM. 

DEBATE – The Implications

October 16, 2008

The debates are over – mercifully.  There is no question that John McCain is not an orator.  He has not had training and his mannerisms don’t do him any favors.  Obama is smooth – slick – glib – cool.  So what does it all mean?  First of all, McCain speaks from the heart, I truly believe that.  He will FIGHT for all Americans and for this country’s future.  He is less effective in conveying his message than is Obama.

Obama with all his slickness, coolness and glibness, remains a huge risk.  I am of course biased as a result of my research.  But I am going to stick with his comments and his ‘plan’ and not delve into his background, for the purpose of these comments.  I would like to say that I found his smirks and snickering at just about every comment made by McCain to be arrogant, disrespectful, and very childish.  It reminded me of a teacher confronting an obnoxious teen, giving him or her a firm dressing down.  The teen laughs, shrugs shoulders and essentially blows the teacher off. 

Obama proposes taxation increases – in all categories (business, inheritance, death, capital gains etc.)  Last night he squarely placed a target on the backs of small business owners, represented by Joe the Plumber.  What is clear is that a person with a small business who desires to expand (hire more employees, sell more product or service, open an additional location, acquire more equipment to increase production) will find themselves hit hard by increased taxes.  If you have been able to do $250,000 a year in business (which as gross sales is not much), and you want to strive for $500,000 in gross sales.  You need to do one or more of the items listed to increase annual numbers.  What will happen is that with each employee you add, your tax rate will go up.  It will continue to go up with the addition of each person.   You will find yourself having to cut back, lay people off, because an increase of $50,000 in taxes equals one employee. 

This approach to taxation sends a clear message that if you work hard, do well, achieve financial success, you will be penalized.  Moreover, your work, investment of time and money, the work of your employees, and all the sacrifices you had to make along the way, will now have some portion of it all allocated to the poor.  It sounds nice, compassionate.  But is it fair?  I do not think so.  Contrary to what the Bible teaches, all men are not created equal in their ability to work and generate income.  Some people are lazy.  Some people do not have the temperment to work for themselves.  Some people are not blessed with sufficient IQ, while others did not apply themselves when in school.  Of the full range of poor, there is a percentage who are simply incapable – due to physical, mental, or circumstancial situations.

There is NOTHING positive to be gained by giving yet more handouts to those who are generational welfare recipients.  They are not likely to ever get off the dole because that is all they know.  We already foster the condition, so why make it worse, at the expense of small business people?

Contrary to what Obama says, couples who earn over $45,000 WILL be taxed higher.  Singles who earn over $32,000 will be taxed higher.  If you think that Obama can give you ‘free’ health care, and all the other promised programs without across-the-board tax increases, you are living in a cloud. 

Redistribution of wealth is the Communist ‘way’ – except that as with Communists, those in power had plenty of money and all it buys, and then there was everyone else.  Essentially what is good for the goose (who promises to lay the golden egg), is not good for the gander (everyoen else). 

One of the best and more relevant sayings that fit this situation is “TALK IS CHEAP”   Obama can say anything, claim anything, promise anything, deny anything – it costs him nothing, assures him that many will believe him, and in turn that he can get elected.  But when it’s time for the pedal to hit the metal, you can be assured that all the talk will evaporate, and we will be left with excuses, explanations of ‘why not’ and evaporation of all promises. 

If you buy into what Obama promises, you will be in for a huge shock and disappointment.  It may be that he believes what he is telling us.  It may be that he believes it can all be done (despite economists who have run the numbers and say it’s impossible).  But our economic situation is such that any of his promises are impossible.

McCain on the other hand is  promising to clean up government and hack away at the waste.  One can fathom how much waste there is in Washington – via our various agencies, and in Congress.  Billions of dollars in waste.  It is the reform of government that is our most critical need, and from there falls a solution to so many other things.  If McCain could do just that (and keep us safe) in 4 years, he would have made one of the greatest contributions to this country in the last 50 years, if not longer.

From that reform would flow many possibilities, not the least of which would be serious reduction of our deficit, and establishing policies and procedures that make it impossible for reckless spending to continue.

Republicans are being blamed for the economic mess we are in.  No amount of fact seems to alter that perception.  Yes the FACTS tell a very different story.  Democrats are known to be out of control spenders – always have been, always will be.  However, Republicans have been in that mix too.  But this is NOT, repeat NOT a Republican-fostered problem. 

Imagine what is going to happen without any checks and balances – with a Democrat controlled House and Senate and a Democrat-controlled Administration????  Utter and outrageous spend party.  Our debt will blow sky high, from which we shall never recover.

THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO BE ACCOMPLISHED BY THE NEXT PRESIDENT IS TO CLEAN UP OUR GOVERNMENT; KEEP TAXES LOW AND STEADY; KEEP US SAFE FROM TERRORISTS (INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL).  John McCain is the only man of these two who can get that job done.  Sarah Palin will help him do it, and John will surround himself with a Cabinet and agency heads that are the best, without regard to party. 

Hello world!

 This is my first blog (on here), and I write with a good deal on my mind.  Of course we have a major crisis in this country, as well as the world — the fallout from having created a global economy where we rise and fall together.  There are obvious issues facing us – economy, related scandals yet to be uncovered, corruption, greed, and the resulting impact on everyone else. 

Let me say upfront that I am an Independent – a combination of some liberal and conservative.  Now and for some time I have grown so tired of the 2-year election campaign – far too long and tedious.  And with it, so many questions, so many black holes void of detail, so much finger pointing.  It wears on one’s spirit and soul. 

But I am a news hound, ever in search of details, so this has been an especially big challenge, to separate the wheat from the chaff, to determine truth from lie, fact from fiction.  I admit that I have also wanted to fill in at least a few of those black holes that have been bothering me. 

Now the Internet is a fascinating medium for information.  Some of it factual, some not, but there is no limit to the wealth of information one can find, with a bit of digging.  One can invade someone’s privacy, go inside docouments, find reports on events or track a series of events.  You can find photos not seen before, compare data, and generally fill your mind with copious quantities of information.  But one can’t accept on blind faith.  It is necessary to go down a few layers to obtain multiple verification.

So, my blogs will be a reflection of many hours (well over 100) of research.  Endless hours, probing into aspects of our government, some legislation, connections between people, statements made or not made, alliances, voids.  With it all, there remain some serious questions, posed later. 

I love this country, I am proud to be an American and I am saddened by the growing divisions.  The things that should bind us now divide us, and perhaps more so this year than ever before in our history.  There is a vehement annimosity between most all factions.  Now is a time we should be thinking as Americans first, before party affiliation, before accusations. 

We are approaching a new era in this country, one that is going to impact us all.  This is not a ‘change’ promised by Obama (though his ‘change’ deserves more discussion).  Rather, this is a change of just where America is in the World of Nations.  Most of us alive in the US today have known nothing except America as global leader, all-powerful economically and militarily.  We have lead the way to Democracy, come to the aid of many countries in time of war and crisis.  We have been envied, hated, ridiculed, but always thought of as No. One.  How then will we handle our new role as just another country, no longer in the lead, no longer the greatest economic force, no longer possessing the biggest and best of anything?

That, sadly, is our future.  And the future is now.  If one goes down the list of biggest and best (no matter the category, be it shopping mall or hotel, office building or bridge, mega store.  We have lost our place – and with it, our way.  We have lost our way.  Innovation, creativity, hard work, spirit – benchmarks of this country, have dwindled.  We no longer make anythnig, but ‘assemble’ as they do in Third World countries.  Major corporations, pitted against relentless labor union pressures, management greed and dedication to the investors rather than the employees, have moved their operations overseas, and with it our jobs. 

We buy almost everything from China, Japan or other Asian and South American countries where labor is cheap.  Items inferior to what we used to make, untouched by American hands.  Essentially we have been sold out – but here I must emphasize that the blame is wide-spread.  It is not one party or one president.  It is BOTH parties, more than 2 presidents, labor unions, greedy executives, and even greedier investors who don’t give a damn about companies and employees as long as their portfolios go up.

Now – we  ALL pay the price, in more ways than most can even begin to fathom, much less understand.  The signs are all there.  The writing is on the wall, and the only thing missing from the hole into which we are sliding is a soft landing.

We all have reason to worry.  We all have reason to be confused.  But let me caution one very important matter here and now – as much as President Bush is under fire and out of favor, as much as there is a good deal of dislike (aka hatred) expressed toward him – he is NOT the source of all of our problems.  He has throw wood on a fire already burning before he got into office. 

Our problems take root in various times gone by, some from the Vietnam era, some from the 80s; some from Carter’s administration, some from Clinton’s.  There have been financial people, various Senators (of both parties), the FED and oh so many entities that have contributed to this mess.  Hands in other’s pockets, favors being done, turning a blind eye to wrongs….it is a long and ugly trail and Bush just happens to be at the end of the trail.  He is certainly NOT guilt free by any means.  Under his watch things have worsened.  

Two candidates are now our choices.  Both make promises as do all politicians.  But it needs to be pointed out that promises involving money are not likely to be implemented – quite simply because we don’t have any money! 

I hope to offer information that will enlighten, or at least cause you to pause and scrutinize.  THINGS ARE NOT AS THEY MAY APPEAR.

A NEW BOOK CONNECTING THE DOTS OF WHAT IS HAPPENING IN AMERICA

June 2, 2011

Following my initial research (appearing on this site) I continued my research and the more I dug the more explosive it became. I decided to take my notes and incorporate them into a new book – just out – called And Two Were Chosen – you can find details and ordering info at http://www.andtwowerechosen.com

Connecting The Dots

April 8, 2011

Should this old blog get any new readers, or those from previous views – I wonder now, 2.5 years later, just how people who supported Obama feel about him now?  So many claims of racism for criticizing, or questioning.  But the time past has made it quite clear that this blogger’s predictions and concerns have been born out – alas.  The problem is that the issues are far greater than most expected or assumed – primarily because so few connect the dots, disparate as they may be, to reflect the big picture.  The big picture is the long-existing objective to topple America, our economy and currency – and to turn our wealth into the IMF and World Bank.  We are under attack by a number of forces, not the least of which is George Soros who has emerged to be visible, overt, and the most evil entity on earth!    There is much to come in the remainder of 2011 and in 2012 – and if it all comes to pass, America as we know it will be gone forever.

AL MONSOUR – Who is This Mentor and Friend of Obama’s???

October 30, 2008

Dr. Khalid Al-Mansour, Senior Advisor, HRH Prince Al-Waleed Bin TalalDr. Al-Mansour is an international attorney and businessman and is renowned as an intellectual, activist, author, and teacher. He co-founded the law firm of Al-Waleed, Al-Talal, and Al-Mansour and has served as a director of the Saudi African Bank and the United Bank of Africa among others.  He travels the world giving speeches against America and in support of Islam.  He and Al-Waleed have their fingers in many US businesses and real estate, from which they have made a huge sum of money. 

Al Monsour detests Jews, Christians and Whites with a passion! 

Bin-Talal has donated millions of dollars to various American universities to sponsor and expand on Islamic studies.  It is Khalidi that is now at Columbia U in charge of Islamic and Middle East studies, where he has created a platform to promote anti-Semitism.  It is, according Percy Sutton (civil rights activist, millionaire) gave an interview in which he said that years ago Al Monsour asked him to help get Obama into Harvard, and that Obama was receiving financial backing from bin-Talal. 

So, the trail goes thus:  Obama met Al Monsour in Chicago before going to Harvard.  Al Monsour was friends with Khalidi, and Percy Sutton.  He was also friends with Ayres, whom Obama knew.  Al Monsour introduced Obama to Khalidi and the Prince Al-Talal and the group remains allied, and includes more people, like George Soros, who also hates Jews and Israel. 

The common thread between these men is pro Islamic philosophies, anti-Semitic attitudes, and support for Palestine.  There is great power and money within this group, ready and waiting.

BROWN AND BLACK – IMAGES OF DAYS GONE BY OR UPCOMING?

October 30, 2008
 

A speech given months ago (link sent earlier) shows Obama saying that he will immediately create a national ‘security force’ with as much strength and power as the military.

Here is the link to the speech mentioned just over 1/2 way through – about a National Security Force
Here is the full speech on July 2, 2008 in Colorado Springs, Colorado  
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Df2p6867_pw

And that would be for what? WHY do you need a costly armed security force in this country when we have city police, county sheriffs, FBI, fire department and state police? WHY? I leave you to your own conclusions.

BUT may I bring up another instance when a similar force was called for, and what happened then? Harkin back to your personal knowledge of, or from the history books (or just Google) the time when the infamous Brown Shirts and Black Shirts were created. And what happened then?

The potential for comparison is frankly frightening!

PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD TODAY – ALL AMERICANS MUST MUST MUST KNOW WHO THIS MAN IS AND WHERE HE WILL TAKE US. SEND EMAILS NOW PLEASE !!!!!
