There is again, something going down that we should he apprehensive about, if not outright suspicious. Obama has repeatedly insulted our staunchest allies and befriended our long-time foes, establishing a disturbing pattern. The latest incident is pulling back the missile defense shield, with NO concessions on the part of Russia. They will again bully Poland and Georgia, if not invade and take over. They want total control of the oil pipeline through Georgia to Europe. The threat of shutting it down or jacking up prices for sky-high profits is very appealing to the Soviets, and is their style. It was interesting that Jeffery Immelt of G.E., and Obama's buddy, shot off to Russia immediately after that public announcement. Is G.E. getting special Russian contracts to go with American handouts? Poland and Georgia feel betrayed. They've been good friends to the U. S. and now won't even answer phone calls from this administration. Our conceited President foisted upon the Queen of England tapes of himself and his speeches, and returned a bust of Winston Churchill, not once, but twice. Now we're about to sit down with the likes of Iran, while Iran is thumbing its nose at us. Obama has pretty much told Israel to "go blow" at the same time Russia is sending anti-aircraft missiles to Iran, and probably long range rockets, to easily reach the Jewish homeland. Since Obama is befriending all the Bad Guys, and doesn't much care if Iran goes Nuclear, don't be surprised if Israel attacks soon -before EVERYTHING is stacked against their survival. What would YOU do, let Iran cast the first stone? Our sanctioning gasoline to Iran doesn't even affect them now, since Obama's friend in Venezuela is now shipping gasoline to them. I'm just musing. These are all negatives that I am seeing build up on a World scale, while we are focusing internally. Many countries are affected by what the U.S. does, or does not do. I see that, even outside our borders, Obama is picking up unsavory bedfellows, while snubbing new and long-time old friends. NOT GOOD!
Deceit and lies seemingly never end with this president. I told you if you thwart him from doing whatever he is bent on doing, he will just "skin the cat" (you and me) another way. The clear majority of the people are dead against illegal aliens getting Heathcare. And they are vociferously against Amnesty. Obama wants both! WE DON'T. So, to Hell with us! He and Pelosi want the Power that the infusion of 12 million or more extra voters will bring to the democratic party for years to come. Obama just told us all that illegal immigrants would NOT get healthcare in his Bill, and was called a "Liar!" His latest infomercial to "sell" his garbage to the public is technically true, because he DID'NT tell you he is going to ram AMNESTY (making them ALL LEGAL) down our throats too. Is that a LIE, or just unbelievable deceit and GALL? He is as slippery and elusive, with as many faces, as that conniving ACORN he worked for. AFTER that emphatic speech to the Nation, he spoke to the Hispanics quite differently, as in this article.
"Obama: Legalize illegals to get them health care" by Stephen Dinan 9/18/09 Washington Times President Obama said this week that his health care plan won't cover illegal immigrants, but argued that's all the more reason to legalize them and ensure they eventually do get coverage. He also staked out a position that anyone in the country legally should be covered - a major break with the 1996 welfare reform bill, which limited most federal public assistance programs only to citizens and longtime immigrants. "Even though I do not believe we can extend coverage to those who are here illegally, I also don't simply believe we can simply ignore the fact that our immigration system is broken," Mr. Obama said Wednesday evening in a speech to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute. "That's why I strongly support making sure folks who are here legally have access to affordable, quality health insurance under this plan, just like everybody else. Mr. Obama added, "If anything, this debate underscores the necessity of passing comprehensive immigration reform and resolving the issue of 12 million undocumented people living and working in this country once and for all." Republicans said that amounts to an amnesty, calling it a backdoor effort to make sure current illegal immigrants get health care. "It is ironic that the president told the American people that illegal immigrants should not be covered by the health care bill, but now just days later he's talking about letting them in the back door," said Rep. Lamar Smith of Texas. "If the American people do NOT want to provide government health care for illegal immigrants, WHY would they support giving them citizenship, the highest honor America can bestow?" Mr. Smith said. But immigrant rights gurus see the speech as a signal that Mr. Obama is committed to providing health care coverage for anyone in the United States legally, regardless of their citizenship status. "It's the first time I've certainly heard, publicly, him talking more about legal immigrants," said Eric Rodriguez, vice president for research and advocacy at the National Council of La Raza (NCLR). "I think that was certainly positive progress. We were absolutely concerned about not hearing that." On Wednesday, hours before Mr. Obama's speech, the NCLR had given the administration a public scolding, demanding that Mr. Obama needed to make "a pubic commitment.. .to ensure that those who are here legally are covered." Mr. Obama said legalizing illegal immigrants is a way to take the sting out of the entire issue. But Republicans said by pushing to legalize illegal immigrants, Mr. Obama is signaling that those here illegally eventually will get access to taxpayer-funded benefits. Still, the push to pass a legalization bill is beginning to gain steam, even as advocates fret that the White House is moving too slowly. On Thursday, Rep. Luis Gutierrez, Illinois Democrat and an outspoken advocate for legalization, agreed to take leadership in writing a new, more generous bill, "We simply cannot wait any longer for a bill that keeps our families together, protects our workers and allows a pathway to legalization for those who have earned it," Mr. Gutierrez said. "Saying immigration is a priority for this administration or this Congress is not the same as seeing tangible action, and the longer we wait, the more every single piece of legislation we debate will be obstructed by our failure to pass comprehensive reform." End
I am sick of sad stories emanating from "oppressed" ILLEGAL aliens and sympathetic representatives that don't REPRESENT taxpayers or our Constitution. OUR rights had better start coming before theirs! WE will pick the fruit. If it doubles the price of an apple - so be it. Americans (not Mexicans) need jobs! Throw American employers IN JAIL that don't hire ALL American workers. Pick that fruit using prison work gangs, or welfare recipients. Watch their kids while they're in the field. Don't tell me it CAN'T be done! If there's no work /welfare for illegals in the U.S., they'll go home and clean up Mexico!
Obama likes to play semantics (word games) as you must know by now. When he says the A.M.A. (American Medical Assoc.) supports his healthcare plan he knows the "average joe" presupposes that the AMA is a fraternal organization nearly ALL doctors belong to. In fact, 83% DO NOT belong. Polled doctors showed 45% would consider quitting or retiring if government gets into the rest of healthcare. Surely one could surmise that a good many more would get out AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. And it is logical to presume those pursuing medical careers now will switch to other studies and careers. Tell me again, Obama, with your many millions more getting care, how we're going to pay for it, and not see SEVERE rationing. I must be stupid. U.S. doctors who have practiced in Canada are adamant about the awful care Canadians sometimes are relegated to. It ultimately comes down to simple finances -totally unlike what Americans are accustomed to. Did you know that a neuro-surgeon pays $250,000 in annual premium to insure against malpractice suits? Doctors START EARNING money in their 30's, with a huge education debt and needing the most expensive equipment imaginable. They would then need to pay for facilities, nurses and office staff, as well as heat and lights, and general overhead. Now, after all this expense, but before a dollar to call their own is in hand, they must shell out $250,000 MORE to keep the wolves (relentless trial lawyers) away! That's the going rate, and why OUR premiums cost so much. ANY business must pass costs on to the customer, (us) or succumb. I'm sure lots of people will want to become doctors and nurses! Obama's Bill is over 1100 pages and not ONE WORD about TORT reform! That's no accident! That's Politics! First and always comes, Payoffs for Power. Obama's lying and word manipulations are falling on mostly deaf ears now. Only other stinking politicians are listening to Obama and Pelosi anymore, and those perennially with their hands out, of course. But the taxpayers (nearly all) see through these perpetual infomercials. Personally, I am jaded. I've pretty much taken a paranoid defensive position. If Obama is FOR it -I am AGAINST it. The NEXT time he "hires" someone I consider to be a good American, will be the FIRST time. And I naturally assume whatever he says is a lie, with some dangerous agenda I haven't figured out yet. There will be some deliberate distortion, or playing cute with the English language, for some hidden plan. He'll be "calibrating."
Here is another's view. "Listening to a Liar" by Thomas Sowell 9/8/09 Townhall.com The most important thing about what anyone says are not the words themselves but the credibility of the person who says them. One plain fact should outweigh all the words of Barack Obama and all the impressive trappings of the setting in which he says them: He tried to rush Congress into passing a massive government takeover of the nation's medical care before the August recess - for a program that would not take effect until 2013!
Whatever President Obama is, he is not stupid. If the urgency to pass the medical care legislation was to deal with a problem immediately, then why postpone the date when the legislation goes into effect for years - more specifically, until the year after the next Presidential election? If this is such an urgently needed program, why wait for years to put it into effect? And if the public is going to benefit from this, why not let them experience those benefits before the next Presidential election? If it is not urgent that the legislation goes into effect immediately, then why don't we have time to go through the normal process of holding Congressional hearings on the pros and cons, accompanied by public discussions of its innumerable provisions? What sense does it make to "hurry up and wait" on something that is literally a matter of life and death? If we do not believe that the President is stupid, then what do we believe? The only reasonable alternative seems to be that he wanted to get this massive government takeover of medical care passed into law before the public understood what was in it. Moreover, he wanted to get re-elected in 2012 before the public experienced what its actual consequences would be. Unfortunately, this way of doing things is all too typical of the way this administration has acted on a wide range of issues. Consider the "stimulus" legislation. Here the administration was successful in rushing a massive spending bill through Congress in just two days - after which it sat on the President's desk for three days, while he was away on vacation. But, like the medical care legislation, the "stimulus" legislation takes effect slowly. The Congressional Budget Office estimates that it will be September 2010 before even three-quarters of the money will be spent. Some economists expect that it will not all be spent by the end of 2010. What was the rush to pass it, then? It was not to get that money out into the, economy as fast as possible. It was TO GET THAT MONEY - and the power that goes with it - into the hands of the government. Power is what politics is all about. The worst thing that could happen, from the standpoint of those seeking more government power over the economy, would be for the economy to begin recovering on its own while months were being spent debating the need for a "stimulus" bill. As the President's chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, said, you can't let, a crisis "go to waste," when "it's an opportunity to do things you could not do before." There are lots of people in the Obama administration who want to do things that have not been done before - and to do them before the public realizes what is happening. The proliferation of White House "czars" in charge of everything from financial issues to media issues is more of the same circumvention to the public and of the Constitution. Czars don't have to be confirmed by the Senate, the way Cabinet members must be, even though czars may wield more power, so you may never know what these people are like, until it is too late. End
All seven previous heads of the CIA from past administrations wrote letters to the president asking him to stop this investigation of CIA interrogations in 2002. In 2004 independent special investigators determined that there were no grounds for further action. That is not good enough for Obama and his Attorney General, and a goading Pelosi! None of the three care a bit about the ACORN scandal under their noses. Seven heads saying it would be bad for the Nation, for morale and reveal tactics to our enemies, means nothing to these jokers. Some of those enemies are now in court, sailing paper airplanes and laughing, like they know an inside joke. The softness of this administration is going to haunt us all very soon, I fear. Dragging America through the muck (once again) for the World's amusement seems to be something this president enjoys. He likes to apologize for, and embarrass America. He makes that very clear. Not even Jimmy Carter would do that. He just said on TV, "No one is above the law," and he cannot "interfere" with an investigation. HE just recently illegally FIRED one Inspector General that was getting close to HIM, his wife and AmeriCorp dealings! He has also seriously interfered with several other Inspectors recently! Again, he LIES openly, knowing the media will let him!
Video proof of brainwashing our children in thousands of schools as I go to press! Far-left distortions and more lies next week.
