Obama likes to say his White House has "transparency." You've been told of countless "closed door" meetings. He was going to ban lobbyists from gov't positions - he has over 40 hired on. If you want to "hire in" you have to first re-register so you don't look like a lobbyist. Then, they initially meet with corporate lobbyists at the WH where it's logged - transparency. Then comes a half-dozen or more follow-up meetings (in secret) at the local Starbucks or other coffee houses. They may initially e-mail each other (corporation & WH dignitary) on gov't computers, but later "talk" freely (secretly) on their "personal" e-mail. THAT folks, is "transparency" Obama-style! Citizen Activists are ON to the coffee house meetings now - so look for future scheming to move to hot dog stand or subway-seat collaborating - just so it gets done. Secretly?
Obama said (to get health care passed) that the doctors sided with him. Remember all those white coats (WH provided for photo-op) on the WH lawn? They were AMA (Amer Med Assoc) members. Only 15% of all doctors belong to the AMA. But his AMA surveyed 1,231 physicians and specialists, asking for yes or no to 2 statements. 1) "Doctors order more tests & procedures than patients need to protect themselves against malpractice suits." 2) "Unnecessary use of diagnostic tests will not decrease without protections for physicians against unwarranted malpractice suits." 91% agreed with both statements. Doctors outside the AMA would have agreed even more. Over-testing is over charging. Doctors get paid "fee for service" so the more unnecessary tests they (ironically) run to "protect" themselves from frivolous lawsuits, the more they make to help pay those huge insurance premiums and sky-high administrative costs. This of course, will now be taxpayers making the lawyers rich.
Erskine Bowles, a democrat was picked to co-chair Obama's Debt Commission. He said, "If we don't restore some fiscal sanity around here, as a nation we are going to go broke... We face the most predictable economic crisis in history. The debt we are accumulating will be like a cancer and definitely destroy this country from within." Wow! Big surprise! This is Obama-speak for everybody brace for taxes - forced upon him by self-inflicted crisis. The most liberal president ever, wont ever cut spending. Not in this man's quest for redistributive social justice. But what about his and Biden's, "We must spend our way out of debt!" proclamations. Even the Europeans are telling us to shape up.
Good old CBS "Face the Nation" interviewed U.S. Att'y Gen, Eric Holder and said of Arizona's new law, "It allows police, if they "think" someone might be in this country 'illegally', it gives them the right to stop them and they have to produce papers to show that in fact they are citizaens." That deliberate mis-statement by CBS on national TV is a brazen LIE to get public sentiment on their side. There will be no retraction or apology for getting major facts wrong. The dirty Chicago-style mission is accomplished. Impressionable people saw it. Even if retracted, the damage is done and they know it. They (Obama, Holder & the Mexican Gov't) continually portray Arizona's simple enforcement of Fed law as cruel "gestapo" tactics. A lying administration with a lying, aiding and abetting multiple media supporting cast. Nothing could be more dangerous!
Former Orange County, California sheriff, Michael Carona - convicted of witness tampering (a felon) still receives $215,000/year in pension benefits, even while in prison. That's a criminal-sized gov't pension outside of jail. Wonder why CA is bankrupt? NY City residents pay $8 for every $1 paid by each city gov't employee into their pensions - milked the rest of their lives! Yes NY, and the city are bankrupt, too. Coast to coast it is Gov't Union fiscal insanity - or rape of the taxpayer!
How did you interpret Obama's directive to NASA head, Charles Bolden while drastically cutting funds for NASA and laying off many? Those remaining mostly just have "busy work," nothing of substance. We now have to rely on other nations to do anything in space. Bolden said Obama told him his "foremost priority" is to work with and build up the Muslim countries, to restore their faith in their own abilities to be scientific - aid them in technological development. NASA once stood for space exploration greatness. This NASA means Nurture And Self-assure Arabs. Did you hear about the protest rally to building that mega-mosque on ground-zero? About 10,000 (9-11 families plus 10 countries) protested on June 6th in NYC. I suspect you didn't since the most-followed media only tells you what they want you to know!
Judge Feldman, who overturned Obama's 6 month devastating moratorium on drilling based on "no rational connection between the facts found and the choice made" has been getting death threats, but you probably wont hear about that. The media did jump up (headlines) to shout "foul - conflict of interest" though, because he owned oil stock. Feldman is a distinguished judge and sold all that stock back in 2008. He owns NONE - and the lying scumbags who dug deep enough to smear with headlines knew that. They deliberately LIED by omission! It has dirty Chicago media, and Obama's fingerprints all over it.
Private sector jobs are NOT being created, deliberately! Costly gov't jobs abound. Obama says he's "trying" all the time, because he knows people are hot for jobs and the economy, even over terrorism. His actions always tell more than his words. He's destroying up to a hundred thousand jobs through deliberate delay in oil clean-up and his 6 month suspension on drilling, to "investigate." He had to create a crisis (the horrors of oil) to promote his Cap & Trade agenda. Defeated in court he slapped down another suspension. Defeated again, he just did another 6 months. I told you he wont be denied. He knows that big oil and expensive rented equipment wont sit around here waiting. Time is money lost. Our oil and gasoline costs will soon shoot up and it will profit other (many bad) countries. He "investigates" this obvious negligence of proper precautions (mostly by HIS own gov't overseers) with a panel of all anti-oil, anti-business appointees. Gee, I wonder how they'll rule. He artfully stuck BP with all the blame and gained the "blessing" of the people, using his media for mass misinformation. The bonus of another illegal aggressive corporate takeover not even U.S. owned was gravy. The delay (no Jones Act waiver) appeased his Union friends. The extra pollution upset some of his environmental supporters, but elated them in its long term sway potential in Cap & Trade, global warming carbon credits to redistribute wealth, and clean the environment - so embellishment was good. Now comes the huge flock of vultures circling the kill, Obama's contribution-friendly lawyers. They will confiscate up to 50% of every dollar they can "righteously" extract for those legitimately harmed - like malpractice suits affect medical costs. The plight of those in fisheries and tourism is devastating, but don't forget, FAR worse because of loose gov't overseeing and deliberate delaying. Then, lawyers and other crooks (coming in on the same planes) will plot and appear everywhere to work the loose and generous juries and over-burdened courts like they did after 9-11, where they're still "settling," I believe. I want to say, I do not begrudge lawyers representing victims one bit. Legitimate claims, reasonable settlements - absolutely. Those that solicit the airwaves heavily encourage bad and criminal behavior. The prevalent attitude is like, "Hey, let's give it a shot. We might get lucky -a goofy jury." I hate that.
Malik Shabazz, head of the New Black Panthers laughed and mocked the Dept of Justice and Att'y Gen, Eric Holder upon "dismissal" of convicted, uniformed Black Panthers (with clubs) that intimidated white voters on videotape. He was arrogant and smirking (like Obama) because he knows Obama and his racist DOJ will look the other way, no matter how bad or blatant, on film in open public. Their vile media will not show, write or talk of ANY "negatives" except to minimize or deny it. Unless of course, it is white (even remotely) doing it to black. Then, hell hath no fury like Obama's unleashed rabid media dogs. Shabazz (upon dismissal) laughed and facetiously said, "You know we don't carry any batons." Then he said, "Bush, it appeared had his way finally, in his last days. He had us. So the Justice Dept changed hands, into the Obama administration and the Justice Dept leadership changed into black hands by the name of Eric Holder, took a look at it and threw most everything out." Shabazz even admitted on FOX TV that he ordered the intimidation. Another time, he said (after 9-11), "Mr Bin Laden, gotta give him his respect. He's not bowing down today. We don't see him cutting the tap dance. Today, in the world Bin Laden is standing up. Mr Bin Laden, Al Qaeda, the Taliban. I don't know whether Bin Laden had anything to do or not with the Sept 11th attacks. Let's give him a hand, man." What a despicable American. The NAACP (Nat Assoc for the Advancement of Colored People) is now politically, not civil rights oriented. The DOJ has done nothing (in a year) to the SEIU Union thugs that brutalized and hospitalized (on film) Ken Gladney, a slight black man at a tea party. Now, the NAACP calls Gladney an "Uncle Tom" and sides with the brutish thugs! The NAACP is offering a resolution to its members condemning what it says is "rampant racism" in the Tea Party movement. They have nothing to say about the Black Panther at the Poll that said, "You're about to be ruled by the black man, Cracker!" Or this one vehemently, "I hate white people! All of them. Every last iota of a Cracker I hate, because we're still in this condition. You want freedom? You're going to have to kill some Crackers! To kill some of their babies! Let's get our act together." This piece of garbage was let go by Obama's DOJ and not even mentioned in mainstream news. And when Shabazz, head of the New Black Panthers was asked about killing white babies, he said, "I wouldn't focus on the babies... I would focus on the police." Bill Ayers, founder of the terrorist Weather Underground and bomber in the 1970's, who is well-connected to Obama and half his staff, had an infiltrator at some of their meetings back then. He said, "The question that was debated was - was it or was it not the duty of every revolutionary to kill all newborn white babies?" Khalid Muhammad, head of the Black Panthers in 1993 said, "I say if they don't get out of town... we kill the men. We kill the women. We kill the children. We kill the babies. We kill the blind. We kill the crippled. We kill the crazy. We kill the fagg-ts. We kill the lesbians. I say G-d dammit, we kill them all!" He said "Moms" are the producers of the oppressors. Obama's Dept of Justice, Holder and the rotten media apparently aren't concerned about the outspoken views, racism, hate speech and open intimidation of the militant Black Panthers. They, ACORN, the SEIU and other radicals seem to have a green light. But Holder and our DOJ is sending infiltrators into the Tea Party groups - to report back to him. And don't forget Obama's right-hand man, Andy Stern who says, "We know who you are. We know how you voted. We know where you live." Consider all this - not condemned, not acted upon - almost encouraged, not even reported to the public, when the NAACP calls the Tea Party people racists! And the U.S. Att'y General infiltrates them while dismissing the Black Panthers. Michelle Obama just gave a speech for the NAACP, praising their achievements. She and her husband are a disgrace! They are racists as I see it - abusing power and position to excuse or free (if not acclaim) other abusers and low-lifes!
I was appalled seeing the wimpy McCain presidential campaign. He didn't seem to even care about Obama's highly questionable, if not sordid past. WE voters deserved to know his radical associations, which were too numerous to hide. But McCain not digging or caring to expose him, PLUS the Media not about to (in support) allowed Obama to steal the election from an unknowing public. If you look back, he lied about everything. He promised everything to everyone - whatever your group wanted to hear. When he got "in" his promised "change, transparency, no more lobbyists or business as usual" was immediately thrown out the window. He is worse at all those promised changes than any of his predecessors. He's smooth. It's hard to believe he said all he did, with a straight face. Gigi Gaston filmed a documentary, "We will not be silenced" that everyone should look up on the Internet. It is somewhat dry, but telling. It is about voter fraud. Remember Obama's very close ties with ACORN and all their voter and registration fraud cases, supposedly going on right now. The DOJ (Dept Of Justice) is dropping pursuit of anything ACORN, including the infamous "pimp & prostitute" scandalous videos - not on Obama's watch. Do you really think all their wrong-doings in getting him elected in all those toss-up States will be prosecuted by his DOJ and Holder? The documentary shows the dismay of an elderly civil rights activist black lady who marched with Dr King. She saw several black men blocking a voting entrance (not the Panthers). She said she saw them tell an elderly white lady, "If you're not voting for Obama, go home 'cause you're not voting today." She said 4 or 5 others (that heard) also turned away, and she was "sickened" to see all she fought for - reversed. Consider, country-wide how much organized intimidation (unreported) was used (like the Black Panthers with clubs) to go with illegally stuffed ballot boxes by ACORN. DOJ lawyers were told they were not going to enforce "Motor Voter" law standards that keep dead people, illegals, felons and cartoon characters off registration roles. You can register by post card (no I.D. necessary). In Missouri (long history of voter fraud) in 2005, one third of its counties had more voters registered than people over the age of 18! Their Sec'y of State, Robin Carnahan impeded investigation then, and is now a candidate for US Senate. Think she will have ACORN's "support?" ACORN buses their people around to vote many times! As long as there are more names registered than vote - no red flags. I contend (by deliberate dereliction in their actions) that the DOJ is not just negligent - but CORRUPT under this regime. Holder was selected by Obama who doesn't contradict any of his actions. Both are involved in the worst kind of fraud in a free society - rigging elections! AND they "allow" Union and Racist thug intimidation! Hey, rigging, media and intimidation put them in power, didn't it? In America, of all places! How scary is this? Obama doesn't care! The Dept of Justice doesn't care! The Media doesn't care! He's still grooming his Supreme Court, for many years to come. Do YOU care? Enough to throw these criminal, disgusting anti-America bums out?
Obama studied Constitutional Law in college - I think to find loopholes, judging by deeds. The USA Today paper said the Tea Partyers, "are overwhelmingly white and Anglo, although a scattering of Hispanics, Asian-Americans and African-Americans combine to make up almost one fourth of their ranks." Overwhelming and scattering are odd terms - innuendo of something unseemly intended? Those are the demographics of this nation, almost exactly. Some people think I am too hard on Obama, but I don't have to be battered with a board repeatedly to realize someone is not a good person. When their guard is down and they are angry they can reveal their dark side. It can be so venomous that one glimpse is enough, so I quote him again. He told the American Legion he thought injured soldiers should pay for their injuries themselves, amounting to about $450 mil at the time. Remember, he and Pelosi were throwing Billions everywhere, pork for everyone when he said this about the maimed and amputees, "Nobody made these guys go to war. They had to have known and accepted the risks. Now they whine about bearing the costs of their choice? It doesn't compute. I thought these were people who were proud to sacrifice for their country. I wasn't asking for blood. Just money. With the country facing the worst financial crisis in its history I'd have thought that the patriotic thing to do would be to help the nation's deficit. I underestimated the selfishness of some of my fellow Americans." I still find these revealing words despicable! Especially from a Commander-in-Chief who never served or shed a drop of blood. If I was still in the Army I would have extra-special feelings for him!
In this especially heavy letter, I must pass on to you the true brilliance of Thomas Jefferson by quoting some of his famous, profound and absolutely prophetic statements from over 200 years ago. His foretelling of today's governmental power grab, corruption and greed is so "right-on" it's startling. All are numbered quotes. 1) When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe, we shall become as corrupt as Europe. 2) The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not. 3) It is incumbent upon every generation to pay its own debts as it goes. A principle which if acted on would save one-half the wars of the world. 4) I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the Gov't from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them. 5) My reading of history convinces me that most bad Gov't results from too much Gov't. 6) The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. 7) To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical. 8)I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property - until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their founders conquered. 9) No freeman shall ever be debarred the use of arms. 10) The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in Gov't. - Wow, and Amen!
Let me tell you a little about the sacrifices those 56 men and their families made that signed our Declaration of Independence. They KNEW they were pledging their lives and fortunes. They knew they were dead men if the war was lost - paupers if won. 5 signers were captured by the British as traitors and tortured before they died. 12 had their homes burned. 2 lost their sons in the war and 2 were captured. 9 fought and died from wounds. Braxton of VA, a wealthy trader died in rags. Thomass McKeam was so hounded, his family was moved constantly and he died in poverty. Soldiers looted the properties of Dillery, Hall, Clymer, Walton, Gwinnett, Heyward, Ruttledge and Middleton. British General Cornwallis took over Thomas Nelson Jr's home as HQ. Nelson told Gen Washington to open fire. He died bankrupt. Frank Lewis had his home and property destroyed. They jailed his wife and she died within a few months. John Hart was driven from his wife's bedside as she was dying. Their 13 children fled for their lives. His property was destroyed as he lived in forests and caves for over a year. On return his wife was dead and 13 children vanished. THEY sacrificed for all of us. The least we can do is vote and get active. And maybe participate more passionately each coming Memorial Day and July 4th. Our kids learn from us -what we do, and what we don't do.
Those in power today, why are they always seeking ways to take our guns? Are they tyrants? Why have they no use for the knowing wisdom of Jefferson and our other founders? Why are we (The People) not running back to embrace Jefferson's gems? He KNEW, and most of us can see many predicted repugnant happenings all around us, getting worse by the day! We MUST unite and fight! First (now) get to those meetings (Tea or 9-12 ers) or start your own. Read about and teach others our U.S. History. None of us alive today were taught (by sinister design) what we need to learn and share today. Second, get in the faces and DEMAND honest answers of every politician (now & future) you meet. Be vocal, then VOTE! Don't vote alone. The enemy (and they are, you know) is crooked as hell and organized. Vote on everything. Make it a vow for the rest of your life. Go to the polls pushing someone and pulling someone. Now that you know - it is your duty. Let us escape this onslaught - and make Mr Jefferson proud!
The following came off the Internet - why Obama wants to control it. Retired Vice-Admiral, Bob Scarborough of Arlington, VA wrote, "I wanted to give you all some disturbing info on our wonderful president. I work with the Catch-a Dream foundation. which provides hunting & fishing trips to children with life-threatening illnesses. This past weekend we had our annual banquet/fundraiser event in Starkville. As a part of our program, we had scheduled Sgt First Class, Greg Stube, a highly decorated US Army Green Beret and inspirational speaker who was severely injured while deployed overseas and didn't have much of a chance for survival to come. Greg is stationed at Ft Bragg, NC and received permission from his C.O. to come speak at our function. Everything was on go until Obama made a policy that NO U.S. servicemen can speak at any faith-based public events anymore. Needless to say, Greg had to cancel his speaking event with us... Didn't know if anyone else was aware of this new policy. Wonder what kind of news we all will receive next. You're just starting to see the Obamanation. Your religion is next. I don't know about you, but this makes me furious. What a rotten thing to do by the Commander-in Chief. And I'm afraid we ain't seen nothing yet!" I offer this too, to all those "believers" out there that still like him, think he is a compassionate Christian, liking America and its military. I see Obama as very dangerous! AND the media (other than FOX News) that will ignore or cover up any rotten thing he says or does. Sorry, I've seen too much. FOX, talk-radio and the Internet are about all we have. Fight fiercely to keep them! Once mainstream media sees Obama losing power they will turn on him - to win back your "trust" and following. Don't ever forgive or forget who they really are. They will just be "lying" in wait - for their NEXT Prodigy!
