Vote of Confidence

Exposing The Obama-ACORN Corruption Link

In the wake of ACORN's dramatic fall from power in the Democrat back room power broker deals in Washington DC, the Obama Administration recently released a statement through it's inept Press Secretary Robert Gibbs that the President did not know how corrupt ACORN is, nor did he have any exposure or linkage to ACORN.

Today, we blow that lie to pieces.

In Jaunuary of 1993, just after the inauguration of Bill Clinton, Chicago Magazine ran an extensive article titled "Vote of Confidence" which documented Barack Hussein Obama's community organizing efforts in Chicago as part of Project Vote! which became the modely by which ACORN would do "voter registration drives" in the future.

In order to understand the corruption that started in Chicago Politics which then fed Project Vote! and ultimately ACORN, you first must understand that much like ACORN's "bounty system" where volunteers were paid by the number of voter registration's they collected, Chicago politics worked much the same way. The Chicago Democrat Party leadership was in charge of nearly every voter registration drive using one key motivator: MONEY.

The Democrat Party would routinely pay bounties of up to $1 per voter registered for every new voter a volunteer signed up. This method of running voter registration drives has typically been the most effective in Chicago.

Sound familiar? It should Obama adopted it as part of Project VOTE! and ACORN copied it.

Much of the funding for Project Vote! came from Terri Gardner, the sister of the founder of "Soft Sheen Products." Much of this money was then funneled back into black owned businesses for advertising flyers, posters, radio time on black owned radio stations and to Chicago west side black churches to act as vote registrars.

In the fall of 1992 the Clinton-Gore campaign provided hundreds of thousands of dollars to Project Vote! as did local Chicago SEIU labor unions. All this time, Project Vote! as it became to be known was directed by Barack Hussein Obama who directed where the money went.

By the time the 1992 elections were over, Obama recruited, trained and paid more than 700 deputy registrars who registered more than 600,000 minority voters.

All bought and paid for by Clinton-Gore campaign funds and labor union dues compliments of the SEIU. The model Obama setup as part of Project Vote! was proven so successful, ACORN copied and used it up until the 2008 elections.

Now you may be asking yourself: Where's the link between Obama, Project Vote! and ACORN? The answer is in the name Sandy Newman. Sandy Newman, a civil rights lawyer founded Project Vote! in 1992 to promote voter registration among low income and minority voters. Project Vote! in 1992 was based out of Washington DC as it's only base of operations. Sandy Newman recruited Barack Obama to launch Project Vote! in Chicago. In 1992, Project Vote! became ACORN's voter registration program, and has been part of ACORN since.

In October of 2008, Project Vote (ACORN) ran voter registration drives for the Obama Campaign, which paid Project Vote! (ACORN) nearly $1,000,000. The Obama campaign "misreported" the payment to the Federal Elections Commission which went unnoticed until after the 2008 elections.

ACORN ran voter registration drives in 21 states for the Obama campaign, including Colorado, Florida, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin using the very model that Barack Obama created during the 1992 elections, and for that, ACORN is under Federal Investigation for Vote Fraud in at least 12 states.

No linkage between Obama and ACORN you say?

Afghanistan: Obama's Viet Nam

If you're the President of the United States and you're confronted with losing the war in Afghanistan, what do you do?

Do you listen to your generals who are responsible to run and presumably win the war and give them the troops they're requesting to stop troop loss (read that: casualties) and stop advancement of the enemy (read that: Taliban) or do you spend more time on the Sunday talking head shows and in schools reading to children?

For Barack Hussein Obama, the answer apparantly is to spend more time on the talking head shows and reading to school children rather than listening to his Generals, one of which Obama himself appointed to run and win (read that: presumably win) the war in Afghanistan.

On CBS' "60 Minutes" last night, General McChrystal who was hand picked by Obama said that he'd only met with Obama "once" so far.

The likelihood that McChrystal will resign has gone up dramatically, and I suspect Charles Krauthammer was nothing less than prophetic on Sunday Morning in his statement indicating such.

Afghanistan is Obama's Viet Nam indeed.

Germany Elections: Conservatives Crush Liberals

No doubt we won't be hearing about this in the American media as Angela Merkel and her Conservative coalition have now scored a crushing defeat in the German Parliamentary Elections yesterday (Sunday) handing the German Left "Social Democrats" (the equivalent of Obama and the Democrats) their biggest defeat in decades.

How big of a defeat was it? Frank Walter Steinmeister, a leader of the Social Democrat Party called the election night "a bitter defeat" for the Social Democrats which suffered the worst decline ever by a party in a German Parliamentary Election.

If the Obama Administration and their socialism enabling Democrats are wondering what this means, it's this: Merkel will remain Chancellor in Germany and push hard on the very issues which she campaigned for which are tax relief, a simplification of Germany's tax code and enabling nuclear power plants to continue running past their Socialist Democrat mandated shut down dates to continue providing much needed power to Europe's largest economy.

This election also showed one more thing: The German Electorate had little appetite for the dramatic change that the Social Democrats (who Obama campaigned for last year) were trying to implement in the midst of one of Germany's harshest recessions since the great depression.

If there's a word to the wise here, it's that throwing out an entire economic system in favor of Government mandated Socialism is not the "Change" people around the world have wanted.

Stick that in your pipe and smoke it, Obama, Reid, Pelosi, Frank, Dodd and the rest of you.

Obama Approval Index at All Time Low

New Rasmussen Poll shows Obama at an all time low approval rating, and within a single point of an overall disapproval ratings low earlier this year.


Since Jimmy Carter’s re-entered the news of late, now may be a good time to remind everyone that Obama’s “strong approval” rating now matches Jimmy Carters just before the 1980 election.

Who are these thirty percenters?  Typically government employees, union members and those who are dependent on the Government for their daily sustinence.  These same thirty percenters will never turn on a Democrat controlled administration no matter how bad it gets.

And it’s still getting worse.

September Job Loss numbers are going to be out this week, expect the monthly job loss numbers to be in excess of 500,000 jobs lost, with the average montly losses remaining near 550,000 jobs a month since Obama was elected.

Guess we know how that “hope and change” has been working out now don’t we?

Obama @ War With His Own Generals

General Stanley McChrystal, who was appointed by Barack Hussein Obama just a few months ago to lead the War ON TERRORISM in Afghanistan is now warning the Community Organizer in Chief that the United States is at risk of losing the war, among other things.

One would think that a President would listen to the Generals he has put in charge of winning a war, but that is not the case in Obamaland. 

Accordign to McClatchey newspapers, military officials in the White House and Pentagon have over the last six weeks issued specific directives to McChrystal not to submit a request for an increase in U.S. military forces.  McChrystal is said to want as many as 45,000 additional troops to turn back the Taliban in Afghanistan and stop troop losses (read that: casualties.)

Since the Pentagon and White House wouldn’t “receive” General McChrystal’s request, McChrystal sent it to Defense Secretary Robert Gates.

General McChrystal isn’t a ‘loose cannon’ here, quite the contrary.  Navy Admiral Mike Mullen, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and General David H. Petraeus head of U.S. Central Command have both backed General McChrystal’s assessment that we are at grave risk of losing the war in Afghanistan.

Remember when Obama said the Iraq war was the “wrong war” and Afghanistan was the “right war?” 

In March of this year, Obama declared that the United States would prevent the return of the Taliban and "enhance the military, governance and economic capacity" of Afghanistan in order to help prevent al-Qaeda from returning and once again using the country as a launching pad for further attacks against the United States. But now the president seems to be backing off from his own hard line.

On CBS' "Face the Nation," Obama said that "the only reason I send a single young man or woman in uniform anywhere in the world is because I think it's necessary to keep us safe. ... We're not gonna put the cart before the horse and just think by sending more troops (to Afghanistan) we're automatically going to make Americans safe."

What’s changed between March and today?  For starters, politics here at home.  Obama and the Democrats are facing mounting opposition to nearly every thing Obama is in favor of.  A recent Opinion Research poll found that only 39% of American’s favor the war while 58% oppose it.  Make no mistake about it, this is in large part because of Obama’s constant mis-steps on everything from banking and automobile industry bailouts, cap & trade and government seizure of individual’s health care.  It’s become almost knee-jerk reaction to oppose this President here in America.

Speculation in Washington DC is that no matter what this Spring (2010) the Obama Administration will be looking to abandon Afghanistan, which not only would be a huge mistake, but a direct contradiction by Obama himself about “doing what is necessary to keep American’s safe.”

This is a flat out betrayal of the American people and the good Generals that have run the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan with integrity.  Obama is endangering America with yet another surrender to Islamic Fundamentalist Extremists.

More ‘change’ we cannot count in to be sure.

Obama: “I’m Not Interested in Victory in Iran”

After a “blistering” speech to the Useless Nations in which the Community Organizer In Chief threatened Iran with more toothless sanctions upon learning that Iran had a second nuclear site, Obama holds a press conference the very next day  at the G-20 in Pittsburgh to again talk about Iran.

Listen carefully to the question posed and Obama’s answer:

How much more proof does this country need to see for themselves to prove that this community organizer of a President is endangering America, our Allies and in fact the entire world by coddling these leftist, anti-freedom regimes around the world?

Illinois Man Charged in Plot to Bomb Federal Offices

To My Detractors: No, it wasn't me, sorry to disappoint you.

Read On ...

WASHINGTON, Sept 24 (Reuters) - An Illinois man was ordered held on Thursday on charges he tried to blow up a federal building in the state capital, a case unrelated to the New York terrorism plot.
Michael Finton, also known as Talib Islam, was arrested in Springfield, Illinois, and charged with attempted murder of federal officers or employees and trying to use a weapon of mass destruction, charges that carry a life sentence.

"Fortunately, a coordinated undercover law enforcement effort was able to thwart his efforts and ensure no one was harmed," David Kris, assistant Attorney General for National Security, said in a statement.
Finton was arrested on Wednesday in Springfield as he used a cell phone to try to detonate the bomb he believed was inside a van he had just parked outside the federal building.

Obama and the Politics of Concession

Wall Street Journal, Sept. 23

Mark Helprin

During last year's campaign, Sen. Joe Biden famously remarked that, if his ticket won, it wouldn't be long before "the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy" on foreign affairs. Last week, President Obama, brilliantly wielding the powers of his office, managed to fail that test not just once but twice, buckling in the face of Russian pressure and taking a giant wooden nickel from Iran.

With both a collapsing economy and natural gas reserves sufficient to produce 270 years of electricity, the surplus of which it exports, Iran does not need nuclear electrical generation at a cost many times that of its gas-fired plants. It does, however, have every reason, according to its own lights, to seek nuclear weapons—to deter American intervention; to insure against a resurgent Iraq; to provide some offset to nearby nuclear powers Pakistan, Russia and Israel; to move toward hegemony in the Persian Gulf and address the embarrassment of a more militarily capable Saudi Arabia; to rid the Islamic world of Western domination; to neutralize Israel's nuclear capacity while simultaneously creating the opportunity to destroy it with one shot; and, pertinent to last week's events, by nuclear intimidation to turn Europe entirely against American interests in the Middle East.


Some security analysts may comfort themselves with the illusion that soon-to-be nuclear Iran is a rational actor, but no country gripped so intensely by a cult of martyrdom and death that to clear minefields it marched its own children across them can be deemed rational. Even the United States, twice employing nuclear weapons in World War II, seriously contemplated doing so again in Korea and then in Vietnam.

The West may be too pusillanimous to extirpate Iran's nuclear potential directly, but are we so far gone as to foreswear a passive defense? The president would have you think not, but how is that? We will cease developing the ability to intercept, within five years, the ICBMs that in five years Iran is likely to possess, in favor of a sea-based approach suitable only to Iranian missiles that cannot from Iranian soil threaten Rome, Paris, London or Berlin. Although it may be possible for the U.S. to modify Block II Standard Missiles with Advanced Technology Kill Vehicles that could disable Iranian missiles in their boost phase, this would require the Aegis destroyers carrying them to loiter in the confined and shallow waters of the Gulf, where antimissile operations would be subject to Iranian interference and attack.

Interceptors that would effectively cover Western Europe are too big for the vertical launch cells of the Aegis ships, or even their hulls. Thus, in light of the basing difficulties that frustrate a boost-phase kill, to protect Europe and the U.S. Mr. Obama proposes to deploy land-based missiles in Europe at some future date. If he is willing to do this, why not go ahead with the current plans? The answer is that, even if he says so, he will not deploy land-based missiles in Europe in place of the land-based missiles in Europe that he has cancelled because they are land-based in Europe.

What we have here is an inadvertent homage to Lewis Carroll: We are going to cancel a defense that takes five years to mount, because the threat will not materialize for five years. And we will not deploy land-based interceptors in Europe, because our new plan is to deploy land-based interceptors in Europe.

Added to what would be the instability and potentially grave injury following upon the appearance of Iranian nuclear ICBMs are two insults that may be more consequential than the issue from which they arise. Nothing short of force will turn Iran from the acquisition of nuclear weapons, its paramount aim during 25 years of secrecy and stalling. Last fall, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad set three conditions for the U.S.: withdrawal from Iraq, a show of respect for Iran (read "apology"), and taking the nuclear question off the table.

We are now faithfully complying, and last week, after Iran foreclosed discussion of its nuclear program and Mojtaba Samareh Hashemi, Mr. Ahmadinejad's chief political adviser, predicted "the defeat and collapse" of Western democracy, the U.S. agreed to enter talks the premise of which, incredibly, is to eliminate American nuclear weapons. Even the zombified press awoke for long enough to harry State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley, who replied that, as Iran was willing to talk, "We are going to test that proposition, OK?"

Not OK. When Neville Chamberlain returned from Munich at least he thought he had obtained something in return for his appeasement. The new American diplomacy is nothing more than a sentimental flood of unilateral concessions—not least, after some minor Putinesque sabre rattling, to Russia. Canceling the missile deployment within NATO, which Dmitry Rogozin, the Russian ambassador to that body, characterizes as "the Americans . . . simply correcting their own mistake, and we are not duty bound to pay someone for putting their own mistakes right," is to grant Russia a veto over sovereign defensive measures—exactly the opposite of American resolve during the Euro Missile Crisis of 1983, the last and definitive battle of the Cold War.

Stalin tested Truman with the Berlin Blockade, and Truman held fast. Khrushchev tested Kennedy, and in the Cuban Missile Crisis Kennedy refused to blink. In 1983, Andropov took the measure of Reagan, and, defying millions in the street (who are now the Obama base), Reagan did not blink. Last week, the Iranian president and the Russian prime minister put Mr. Obama to the test, and he blinked not once but twice. The price of such infirmity has always proven immensely high, even if, as is the custom these days, the bill has yet to come.


Weak, Waffling, Wavering, Ambiguous and Overwhelmingly Concessionary

That’s exactly what Ralph Nader had to say about Obama in a recent Time Magazine article.

When the most left leaning, arrogant, obnoxious socialist on the planet calls Obama  “weak, waffling…” you know he’s in trouble with the radical left.

What The Foreign Media Says About Obama

Excerpts From Around The World

Sometimes you have to go beyond the knee-pad wearing American media to see what the rest of the world thinks of Obama because as has been demonstrated time and again since his inauguration, this media is completely in the tank for “The One” and won’t let anything bad be said about him.
While many here in America are still entranced by Obama’s oratory skills, it appears the rest of the world is waking up to the complete failure that the Obama Presidency has no doubt become.
Just look at what our good friend the Brit’s are saying, yes this is the actual title:

“Obama The Impotent”

The disappointment with Barack Obama is tangible – on climate change and financial reform Europe leads while the US Lags
Steven Hill,  Sept. 22nd, 2009
Many leaders and supporters are beginning to wonder what is causing this growing gap between the Barack Obama that many people saw on the campaign trail, and the Obama they see in the White House? Beyond Obama's oratorical skills, which excited not only American voters but people all over the world, he is mostly untested as a politician. His previous experience was only a few years in the US Senate and a few years more as a state senator. A sinking feeling is arising among many that President Obama may not be up to the task, that he may not possess the artful skills needed to accomplish even his own goals.
It seems our friends in the UK are waking up to the Obamanation that this President truly is.   Finally they see what the rest of us have known all along, that electing an ACORN Community Organizer for President was about the dumbest thing this country could’ve done.
But now, the ignorance of our friends the Brit’s as it pertains to our political system here in the “colonies” as they like to call us:
But it must be recognised that it's not just Obama's shortcomings that are causing the problem. The very structure of the American political system is at the heart of these failures. For example, thwarting Obama on a regular basis is an unrepresentative senate where "minority rule" prevails and undermines what a majority of the country may want. With two senators elected per state, regardless of population, California with more than 35 million people has the same number of senators as Wyoming with just half a million residents. This constitutional arrangement greatly favours low population states, many of which tend to be conservative, producing what one political analyst has called "a weighted vote for small-town whites in pickup trucks with gun racks."
As if being insulted by Jimmy Carter wasn’t bad enough, even the Brit’s somehow think that it’s only those in the most rural of areas in the U.S. that oppose Obama.  The reality in the U.S. is that the over-populated urban centers of New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, Dallas and Houston pretty much control the outcome of every election.  The balance that the Brit’s complain about in the Senate is precisely to counter-act the “mob rule” scenario that our Founding Fathers had the wisdom and foresight to protect against.  (That same wisdom and foresight caused them to leave England, but I digress.)  The specific purpose of the Senate is to prevent “mob rule” by the majority, acting as a governance mechanism to prevent government over-reaction towards passing legislation.
In addition, the senate's use of that arcane rule known as the "filibuster" means you need 60 out of 100 votes to stop unlimited debate on a bill and move to a vote. A mere 41 senators, representing as little as 20% of the nation's population, can stymie the other 80%. Given a vastly unrepresentative senate wielding its anti-majoritarian filibuster, it is hardly surprising that minority rule in the senate consistently undermines majority rule, whether on healthcare, financial industry reform, environmental legislation and many other policies.
Again, our friends the Brit’s are ignorant of the facts of our system and the current balance of power.  The Democrats hold super-majorities in BOTH the Senate and House of Representatives.  Obama does not need a single Republican vote to pass anything he wants, the Democrats can do it all.  The current status of the House and Senate prevent any minority rule party such as the Republicans from stopping anything from coming to a vote – or passing.

The first problem that our shortsighted friends the Brit’s don’t see is that Obama can’t keep his own fractured party together long enough to pass the socialist bills the Brit’s seem to want to foist on us poor “colonists!”

The second problem the Brit’s have is they don’t understand why American’s resoundingly reject the very system they embrace – Socialism.   When 80% of a population want something that doesn’t necessary make it the right thing to do – or a “right” to have.  In the case of Health Care for example, the 20% the Brit’s say don’t want it would be the ones ending up paying for the 80% to have.

In our system of government, who has the authority to place upon me such an obligation?  The answer is NO ONE, which is why we poor colonists (as the Brit’s see us) are revolting against Obama.
None of these anti-democratic structural features are going away any time soon. Unless Barack Obama is able to demonstrate a better level of political skill than he has shown so far, everyone needs to fasten their seatbelts. The world is about to enter a challenging phase where the US – the undisputed leader of the free world for the past 60 years – is going to rapidly cede its place at the head of the line.
What the Brit’s call anti-democratic are those parts of our political system that they deem as an affront to their own “sensibilities.”  The reality is our system is working precisely as it was designed to do.  The Democrat Party Leadership over-reached in their power-grabs on nationalizing the Banks, the Automobile industry, and now Health Care.  American's have said NO MORE! as more than 2,000,000 of us marched on Washington DC on 9/12 to make sure the bastards got the message loud and clear whereas the poor sniveling Brit's would've clamored for more socialism. 

This is what separates American's from the British, our bold sense of self-reliance vs. their self surrendering "let the government do it for us" lazy attitudes.  This somehow makes the Brit's more "civilized" than us poor colonists? 

Thank God in Heaven above we kicked them out of here 233 years ago.

Why Everyone Is Saying No to Obama

The Jerusalem Post, Sept. 21st, 2009
Amir Mizroch
Everybody is saying no to the American president these days. And it's not just that they're saying no, it's also the way they're saying no.
US President Barack Obama

The Saudis twice said no to his request for normalization gestures towards Israel (at Barack Obama's meeting with King Abdullah in Saudi Arabia, and in Washington at meetings with Hillary Clinton). Who says no to the American president twice? What must they think of Obama in the desert kingdom?
The North Koreans said no to repeated attempts at talks, by test-launching long-range missiles in April; Russia and China keep on saying no to tougher sanctions on Iran; the Iranians keep saying no to offers of talks by saying they're willing to talk about everything except a halt to uranium enrichment; Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is saying no by refusing to meet with Binyamin Netanyahu until Israel freezes all settlement construction; the Israelis said no by refusing to agree to a settlement freeze, or even a settlement moratorium until and unless the Arabs ante up their normalization gestures.

Which brings us back to the original Saudi no.

The only thing Obama did manage to get Bibi and Abbas to say yes to is a photo-op at the Waldorf Astoria hotel in NY. Mazel tov.

So why is everyone saying no to Obama?

It's the economy, stupid.

Everyone has worked it out by now: The great secret is out. America's economy has made Obama a weak president, and he will likely remain weak throughout his first term. He has about two years to pull the American economy out of its free-fall before he begins his reelection campaign. If he can do it, and that's a big if, chances are good that he'll get reelected, and in his second term he can try to pull some geopolitical strings. But for the next three years, expect to see a world that says no to Obama. No meaningful and dramatic diplomatic initiative can come out of the White House in the next three years, as long as Obama remains weak.
And that's a real pity, because there are some serious and imminent issues that need to be addressed.

Pyongyang is getting more bellicose and not being punished. The North Koreans have violated every single international agreement and norm, and nothing tangible has happened to them.

In Iran, this registers. "Look at how bad they're being," the mullahs say, "and they're getting away with it." Even so, the Iranian government is weak internally and internationally following its election fiasco.

The US and EU could tighten sanctions against Iran without the support of Russia and China, but they would need political will for that. Sanctions, such as a ban on refined oil imports, barring Iranian flights to America and Europe etc., could have a serious impact on Iran and weaken the regime further. The US and EU can act now against Iran like the US and UK did against Libya several years ago when they persuaded Gaddafi to abandon his nuclear ambitions. Back then, though, the US was much stronger. Now, the American economy, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and North Korea have all weakened the US.

In retaliation for increased, unilateral sanctions, Iran could turn up the heat on US and coalition forces in Iraq and Afghanistan, which will stymie Obama's plan to win and withdraw. In Iraq and Afghanistan, Iran has the US president by the kishkes, in a manner of speaking. And so do the Taliban.

So, when a president with so many problems comes asking for a favor, everyone finds it easier to just say “No!”
Editor’s Comment:
It’s hard to add anything of value to such a well written spot-on article, other than to say what we said when Obama was inaugurated: “Jimmy Carter must be the happiest man on the planet because finally someone has come along that will be a worse President than he ever was.”

Bill Clinton on Joe Wilson, Race, Jimmy Carter

"I believe that some of the right wing extremists which oppose President Obama are also racially prejudiced, and prefer not to have an African-American President," Clinton said, but did not say that all of the right wing share that view. "We should disaggregate lingering problems of discrimination from the attacks," he said.

“Most people that oppose Obama on health care would oppose a President who’s white on health care..”

Well well, a broken clock is right two times a day.

Isn’t it funny though that Bill Clinton has conveniently forgotten how Barack Hussein Obama called him a racist during the primaries?

Here’s a question to ponder: If those of us who oppose Obama’s policies are inherently racist, then exactly what does that make the 97% of blacks that voted for Obama over McCain, the old white guy that ran against him?

That’s not racism at all now is it?

Obama: “I didn’t know ACORN was getting Federal money”

Sure, and he never heard one of Jeremiah Wright’s anti-white tirades when he attended Trinity United “Christian” Church for 20+ years either.

Pretty much like everything else, Obama’s just not credible on this issue anymore.

Obama used ACORN during his political campaign, paying them in excess of $800,000 dollars to register voters for his campaign.  This blog disclosed that along with the video of Obama speaking at an ACORN event in December of 2007 in which he stated clearly that ACORN would “help shape his agenda.”    To say he “didn’t know” ACORN was getting Federal (read that: TAXPAYER) money is nothing but Obama lying – again.

But don’t take my word for it, a picture’s worth a thousand words:

Obama Acorn

There are lies, and there are damn’ lies.  This picture proves that Obama is a damn’ liar.

Then there’s this video that we published in October of 2008 showing OBama speaking to an ACORN Presidential Forum in December of 2007  saying ACORN would shape his Presidential agenda.  This is the same ACORN that Obama represented as a young lawyer, suing Chicago banks extorting money to force them to lend money to those that could not repay a mortgage.  The same types of loans that caused the financial crisis we are all in today.

Obama taught classes for ACORN.  ACORN endorsed Obama for President.  As a young lawyer, Obama worked for ACORN.  As a Presidential Candidate, Obama paid ACORN more than $800,000 to “register voters” on behalf of his campaign.

For Obama to say he didn’t know ACORN was corrupt simply shatters any semblance of credibility he thinks he might have had.

This “President” doesn’t know how to do anything but lie to you and I and the rest of the American people.  He was a liar then, he’s a liar now – on every issue from the Economic Stimulus to Housing to Health Care reform, the Banking Crisis (which he helped create!) and beyond.

You can bet the farm that Obama knows exactly how corrupt ACORN is, and it’s only a matter of time (as Jeremiah Wright says) until Obama’s “chickens come home to roost.”

Random Thoughts To Close The Weekend

It’s been a busy week on the homefront here which hasn’t left me alot of time to keep the blog up, so with some free time on a Saturday night I thought I’d post my thoughts from the week … hang on, this could get a little rough.

House Votes to De-Fund ACORN

After Glen Beck’s expose’ of ACORN and four video’s showing ACORN employees help two Conservative journalists posing as a pimp and a prostitute to avoid the law and setup shop in four cities, the House and Senate vote to de-fund ACORN.

Well la-de-da.  ACORN only has some 300+ organizations under its umbrella, how does Congress propose to make sure none of these corrupt organizations get our taxpayer dollars?  They can’t.  No one knows how big ACORN is, or how far its tentacles extend into our Government.

By the way, now that ACORN has been “de-funded” what about the $8 billion dollars their shell organizations already received from the US Government in the form of “economic stimulus?”  When can we expect to get that back?

Then there’s the fact that of the 7 US Senators that voted to keep funding acorn, two are from my home state!  Thanks Dick Durbin and Roland Burris for keeping the corruption going.  Talk in Illinois is it’s a given that the Democrats are going to lose the Senate seat once held by Obama to the Republican’s, Durbin’s in big trouble here too.  Pleading ignorance didn’t help him in the media either.

Obama Surrenders Poland, Eastern Bloc to Russia

Vladimir Putin’s political stock in Russia skyrocketed as Obama surrendered Poland and the former Eastern Block Soviet Countries to the Russians when he announced that the U.S. will rescind our commitment to them and no deploy the Strategic Missile Defense System in their countries.

Headlines across Poland decried Obama’s move as Obama threw them back into the clutches of the Communist Russians.   This after Obama said during the 2008 Campaign that he’d meet the commitments to Poland and former Soviet Block Communist countries to defend them against Russian aggression.

Here’s what Obama promised in April of this year:


President Obama on April 5, 2009: "So let me be clear: Iran's nuclear and ballistic missile activity poses a real threat, not just to the United States, but to Iran's neighbors and our allies. The Czech Republic and Poland have been courageous in agreeing to host a defense against these missiles. As long as the threat from Iran persists, we will go forward with a missile defense system that is cost-effective and proven. (Applause.) If the Iranian threat is eliminated, we will have a stronger basis for security, and the driving force for missile defense construction in Europe will be removed."

Can someone tell me at what point between April of 2009 and September 18th 2009 the Iranian nuclear threat was removed?

Adding insult to injury, Obama didn’t even bother to dispatch Hillary Clinton, Secretary of State to deliver the message.  Rather, Obama sent the Under Secretary of State, Ellen Tauscher to Poland to deliver the news.

Do you know who Ellen Tauscher is U.S. Representatives Ellen Tauscher. Michal Dolezal / Associated Pressand what her qualifications are to be the Undersecretary of State for Arms control are?

Tauscher is a graduate of Seton Hall University with an undergraduate degree in (get this …) “Early Childhood Education.”

Exactly how does an undergraduate degree in “early childhood education” qualify this dimtwit to be an Under Secretary of State for Arms Control, and what does she know about nuclear proliferation?  She may know how to teach a 5 year old how to read, but nuclear proliferation?  Look no further than this video from June 9th of this year to see how uninformed she is.

Now why did Obama surrender Poland to Russia?  He thought he’d get “help” from Putin on Iran and shutting down their nuclear program.

Not only didn’t Putin offer any help, he spit in Obama’s eye stating that the Russians would continue to help the Iranian’s in their pursuit of nuclear power and presumably nuclear weapons.

But Wait, It Gets Worse …

Shortly after Putin announced they’d continue helping Iran, Venezuela announced they will be starting up their own nuclear program with Russia’s help.

That’s right, this madman See full size imageis about to get nuclear technology from our “good friends” the Russians.

Can you possibly imagine a worse scenario than Hugo Chavez with nukes?  Imagine no more, he’s going to get them from his new friends the Russians, and will no doubt receive help from his friends the Iranians, who Chavez is good buddies with.  Remember that Chavez signed a non-aggression treaty with Iran and they have an open technology trade pact as well.

Chavez has also been on an arms shopping spree as reported in the Moscow News just this week.  Chavez is spending some $500 million dollars for up to 100 Soviet T-72 war planes and T-90 tanks.

Venezuela has been spending billions of dollars with the Russians since 2005 buying at least $4.5 billion dollars of weapons sidestepping US Embargo’s on Venezuela acquiring weapons and beefing up its military.

Obama Administration “Bunch of Crybabies”

Kudos to Chris Wallace of Fox News Sunday who in response to Obama’s appearing on all Sunday talking head shows except his, had this to say yesterday (Friday) in response to a question from Bill O’Reilly:

Obama Wants Amnesty for Illegals (To Give Them Health Care Coverage)

In a move that could only prove Joe Wilson ("You Lie!") right, last week Obama quietly inserted a clause into the Democrat Party Health Care Reform propoal to prohibit illegal aliens from getting on the socialized health care rolls.

Typically, we'd say "Score one for Joe Wilson" and he proved that Obama Lied.

Not so fast. This past Thursday Obama announced he wanted Amnesty for illegal aliens so the Federal Government could give them health care!"

Obama lied indeed!

Favorite Sign From 9/12 Rally

"We Came Unarmed - This Time."

Finally, someone who reads this blog carries the message to Washington DC!

The “tea parties” have been nice and all, and I was encouraged to see 2,000,000+ of my fellow American’s making their voices heard last Saturday but really, isn’t it about time we had a good old fashioned revolution complete with guns, bullets, tar, rope and feathers, along with 537 dead swinging bodies from the steps of hte Capital?

IMO it’s long past time to water the tree of liberty with the blood of these corrupt BASTARDS in Washinton DC.  But there I go again being impatient and all ….

A Look Into The Future ....

Finally, here's a picture of the Democrats evacuating Washington D.C. in January of 2011 after the November 2010 Elections cast them out en masse.

For those who don't get it, it's also a reference to the Democrat's failed policies during the Viet Nam war that caused us to evacuate PHnom Penh hurriedly in the closing days of the war. 

These same policies are being mirrored by Obama in Poland and the Czech Republic via Obama’s rescinding of the defensive missile shield program in the former Soviet Communist Eastern Bloc.

Less Than 30% Trust The Media

CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, MSNBC, Fox Ignore Us At Their Own Peril

In the Chicago media market, local CBS and NBC and Fox  stations completely ignored the 912 rally in Washington DC on Saturday in which more than 2,000,000 American’s gathered to show their dissatisfaction with the current Administration and Congress.  Instead, they focused on Obama’s pre-manufactured “rally” in Minnesota giving the President glowing coverage.

The local ABC affiliate in Chicago provided reasonable coverage of the 912 rally, covering Washington DC as well as the local rally in Millennium Park by Chicago’s lakefront.  Chicago’s own WGN also provided minimal coverage of the event while reporting that only 60,000 attended the rally in Washington DC.

Is it any wonder most American’s no longer trust the media to provide fair and accurate reporting?

As I chatted with numerous others online Saturday evening and Sunday morning, many across the country reported similar experiences with their ABCNBCCBS local affiliates completely ignoring more than 2,000,000 American’s marching on DC.   By DC Police estimates, this was the biggest rally they’d ever seen, yet the “mainstream media” chose to ignore it?

They do so at their own peril, which ironically is reflected in their less than stellar ratings.

Perhaps it’s time to organize a march on the headquarters of CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, MSNBC to demand they tell the truth about the 912 rally’s and Barack Hussein Obama.

Maybe, just maybe they’d cover the fact that their own headquarters and studio’s were being besieged by the very people they’ve spent months calling “stupid”, “ignorant” and “racists.”

Maybe they’ll finally figure out that the reason they’re losing audience share to Fox News for example, is because they’ve alienated the majority of their audience.

Maybe, just maybe they’ll finally figure out that instead of alienating their audience by calling them stupid, ignorant racist rednecks that perhaps they should finally report objectively on what’s happening in this country.


This media is so far in the tank for Barack Hussein Obama that somewhere in hell you know Joseph Goebbels is wondering what he did wrong during World War II because after all, he had to pay his propaganda ministers to write stories about German victories in the war and then pay the German media to run them in their papers.

What Goebbels paid for, Obama’s been getting for free.

Too bad for the “mainstream” media the American people aren’t falling for it anymore.
When the revolution starts, the media should be our first victims.

Death to the “mainstream” media.

Can You Hear Us Now?

Hundreds of Thousands of Concerned American’s March on D.C.

D.C. police estimated the crowd at approximately 2 million people according to several well placed sources, while CNN and Fox (which was the worst disappointment for their lack of coverage) continued to report the crowds as “tens of thousands” or just “thousands.”
We ask you, does this look like “thousands?”


And here’s one from another angle:


I’m no crowd expert, but that’s an awful lot of people, looks to be in the HUNDREDS of THOUSANDS not the “thousands” or “tens of thousands” that CNNMSNBC were reporting.  But let’s continue to build the case for the “Millions” that the D.C. police are saying showed up.

Here’s a time lapse from a DC Traffic Camera showing hundreds of thousands of people streaming to the rally site over the course of three hours.

How big was the crowd?  The New York Times reported:

“Many came on their own and were not part of an organization or group. But the magnitude of the rally took the authorities by surprise, with throngs of people streaming from the White House to Capitol Hill for more than three hours.”

Well hells bells, this is some kind of “astroturf” now isn’t it? 

Perhaps it won’t be just CBSABCNBCMSNBCCNN that will be denying the fact that millions of very concerned American’s showed up in Washington DC on September 12th to voice their displeasure with this Government, word is Barack Hussein Obama’s already dispatched White House Spokesman Robert Gibbs to dispel the rumors that 2,000,000+ American’s showed up to voice their displeasure that the U.S. Government has frittered away their money. 


DC Crowd Drowns Out CNN Reporter During Live Report

Chants of “Tell The Truth” and Glenn Beck!” in the background, Concerned American’s telling CNN that they do not appreciate their continued lies and distortions and being completely “in the tank” for Obama.
Take that, CNN.  And try telling the truth for a change.

We’re Having A Tea Party!

This morning hundreds of thousands of American’s who are genuinely concerned about the direction this country is moving in and how fast our hard earned taxpayer dollars have been frivously wasted by the Barack Hussein Obama Administration are waking up and getting ready once again to make their voices heard.


This government has long ago forgotten just who they serve – We The People.

Both political parties have taken our votes for granted.  For years they have pitted us against each other so that they, the politically entrenched ruling class could remain in power.

Long ago this Government figured out that as long as they could keep us fighting amongst ourselves, they maintained their power over us.  And as long as that happened, they – the politically entrenched ruling class in this country, could do whatever they pleased.  Time after time, year after year, this government, lead by both Republican’s and Democrats frittered away our money on useless government programs, foreign aid to or enemies, and against us hard working taxpayers to fund welfare systems that served only to create loyal voting sub-classes which time and again returned these same cretins to Washington DC.

With each passing day, we’ve seen two sets of rules in this country – one for us, another for the political ruling class.  They can cheat on their taxes (or not pay them at all) cause innocent lives to be lost, have marital affairs without fear of consequence, get their own “special deals” to feather their own nests (Countrywide) and reek havoc over our financial systems draining our individual wealth forcing more and more of us into continued tax servitude due to being unable to retire.

Then, when these louses’ have drained the lifeblood from our economy through their meddling in our free enterprise system they simply print more money, incur more debt and start the cycle all over again all the while feathering their own nests because they are still in charge.

Meanwhile We The People who without recompense for the damage these political thugs in Washington DC have caused are forced to carry the burdens of their sins against us via higher taxes and paying for more government welfare programs for their favored class, the perennial “victim class” in our society.

Those days are coming to an end.  Today we put Washington D.C. on notice that their time is short.  We The People are taking back this Government which exists to serve us, not we it.

Ronald Reagan once said “Where A People Fear Its Government, There is Tyranny.  Where A Government Fears Its People, There Is Liberty.”

It is time once again for this Government to fear us.  This is why hundreds of thousands have gathered in Washington D.C. this morning.  This Government through mismanagement of our taxpayer dollars and frankly it’s own arrogance has awakened the sleeping giant in this country. 

While hundreds of thousands of us may disagree on many other issues – we gather today in Washington D.C. bound in agreement on one simple fact: This Government has wasted our money, and we will not allow ourselves, our children and our grandchildren to become tax slaves to the corrupt, arrogant, political ruling class in Washington D.C.

It is time to remind them that they serve us, not the other way around.

Good Morning Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Barack Hussein Obama, John McCain and the rest of the arrogant political ruling elite.

Are you ready?  We Are.

Let’s Party like it’s 2010 and let them know we’re going to DRAIN THE SWAMP.  Their time is coming to an end.

We Remember 9-11

  In memory of those lost September 11th, 2001

We Will Never Forget.

 Where Were You When The World Stopped Turning?

Obama's Biggest Lie To Date

“Universal Health Care Without Raising Taxes or the Deficit”

In what I can only call Obama’s biggest lie to date, one line in his speech jumped out at me as I read the text copy of it earlier today.  This line went unnoticed by damn’ near everyone in the liberal and conservative newsmedia, so allow me for a moment to point it out right here.

Quoting Obama:
We will have a plan to cover all uninsured Americans without increasing the deficit or raising taxes.”
Now the question: Has the United States government ever been able to create such a massive program without increasing the deficit or raising taxes?

The answer is NO.

Now the reality check: Obama’s plan will tax health insurance companies which ultimately will force premiums to rise for those of us that have private health insurance, whether through our jobs or a co-op or other means.   A tax by any other name is still a tax, and its important to remember as a consumer that all costs of producing a good or service whether it’s making widgets, selling a service or health insurance coverage are passed onto the end consumer in the form of increased prices. This includes taxes.

Why is Obama backpeddling so furiously and now choosing an “alternate” method of accomplishing the same goal of “Universal Healthcare?”

The main distinction between soaking insurers directly and eliminating the tax-free nature of employer health benefits is that the latter proved wildly unpopular, especially among Democrats' union allies, while the former is palatable to all but insurers shareholders (i.e. many pension funds.)

But the distinction would rob Peter to pay Paul as both would result in higher customer co-pays and out of pocket expenses and more limited coverage for those already insured.

Healthcare companies including drugmakers would pay a direct tax and people with high priced health insurance would also pay.  Taxing what the politicians in D.C. call "Cadillac" health plans also has other flaws.  It would not distinguish between typical private sector employees who already pay a third of their premiums out of pocket and for those who work in government who often pay next to nothing.  It would also disproportionately hit consumers in high-cost states that bar insurers from denying coverage to riskier customers, thus discouraging a key goal of "healthcare reform"

How about this simple idea instead: Open up health care and promote competition.  Eliminate the barrier that prevents health care companies from selling policies across state borders just like is done with automobile and life insurance policies today.  Why have health care companies been prohibited from this type of competition anyway?

The answer is simple: because individual states have their own mandates which require health companies to comply with them.  This has had the effect of stifling competition across state lines and has kept premiums high.

Remove this obstacle, let companies compete across state lines and watch the premiums consumers pay fall.  Competition will ultimately force premiums down making health insurance more affordable to all, and that should be the proper goal of any health care "reform" coming out of Washington D.C.  Promote competition and let the market (along with the American People) do the rest.  This is what our country and economy excels at - as long as Washington DC doesn't interfere like they did in the housing market. 

Poverty At 11 Year High – Thanks Obama!

The U.S. poverty rate hit its highest level in 11 years in 2009 as the worst recession since the Great Depression threw millions of Americans out of work, a government report showed on Thursday.
The Census Bureau said the poverty rate -- the percentage of people living in poverty -- jumped to 13.2 percent, the highest level since 1997.

The government defines poverty as an annual income of $22,025 for a family of four, $17,163 for a family of three and $14,051 for a family of two.

With unemployment rising, real median household income fell 3.6 percent to $50,303 in 2008, a 10-year low. The percentage decline was the biggest annual drop since 1991 and snapped a three year streak of annual income increases that occurred under the Bush Administration.

Yes, Obama is Causing More Poverty!

"The poverty rate will not fall back to the 2007 rate until the economy expands enough that the unemployment rate falls back below 5 percent. This is not likely to happen for several years," said Sheldon Danziger, a Russell Sage Foundation fellow and professor at the University of Michigan.

Poverty was higher among blacks and Hispanics, the report showed. About 14.1 million children under the age of 18 lived in poverty last year, up from 13.3 million in 2007.

"We project that with the continuing deterioration in the labor market, by 2009 a quarter of all children in this country will be living in poverty," said Heidi Shierholz, a labor market economist at the Economic Policy Institute in Washington.

Guess that “Hope and Change” isn’t working out so well for America’s working families now is it?  It breaks my heart to even think that so many children will be living in poverty by the end of this year, and that Obama’s policies continue to make this situation worse.

Guess “The One” isn’t going to be happy until we’re all living under poverty, begging the government for our daily bread.

Which reminds me …

Where A People Fear Their Government, There is Tyranny.

Where A Government Fears The People, There is Liberty!

Obama on Health Care: Which Lie Are We To Believe, Mr. President?

Joe Wilson (R. SC) Was Right - Obama Lies

Joe Wilson was the only person in the U.S. House of Representatives last night when he yelled out "You Lie!" at Barack Hussein Obama.  The fact is, back in May of this year the Democrats tried introducing an amendment to their own proposals to cover illegal aliens providing them "national health care."  It was only after the Blue Dog Democrats and the Republican's gathered together to block such a provision that it withdrawn by none other than Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker of the House herself.
Joe Wilson was right, Obama Lies.

Our Rebuttal To Obama’s Lies To The Nation Last Night

It matters not what Barack Hussein Obama said last night about "Health Care Reform."

What matters is what he’s said in the past numerous times to his favored constituents which include the AFL-CIO and SEIU.

Make no mistake about it, Obama favors a single payer system run by the Federal Government.  His own statements acknowledge “we may not get there immediately, because first we have to take back the White House, the House and the Senate.”

Well, the Democrats have the White House, the House and the Senate.  They don’t need a single Republican vote to pass single payer.

Obama says he wants Republicans to have input into “his bill” yet he hasn’t had a single meeting with them since April of this year – 5 months ago.

So which lie(s) are we to believe Mr. President?  The ones you told tonight, or the ones in these two videos addressing your favored constituencies?  You our reader can watch and decide for yourself.

And now the final set of lies, Obama talking out of both sides of his mouth, claiming he never said he was for a single payer system.  Yet above, we see clearly that he was via unedited video.

Obama DID IN FACT say he was in favor of a single payer system numerous times, only to deny it during the 2008 Democrat debates.

Barack Hussein Obama is a proven liar, of this there is absolutely no doubt.  Joe Wilson was absolutely correct in his statement in front of the entire viewing nation last night that Obama lies. 

The unfortunate thing about his truth telling however is that the media and the Democrats will use this as a distraction to gain sympathy with the unwashed masses to try and ram through Obama's scheme for socialized, rationalized "health care."  This after both the Democrats and the lamestream media spent 8 years during the Bush Administration deriding President Bush as a "liar" and "stupid" at every turn, every chance they got.

Hypocrisy, thy name is the Democrat party.  Of this, there is also no doubt.

Illinois Tea Party Express Rally Huge Success

Interstate Highway, State Roads Clogged and Shut Down

More than 10,000 people showed up at an Illinois Tea Party Express rally yesterday, shutting down Interstate 80 at Route 30 due to traffic. 

The interstate was backed up more than a mile in each direction as Tea Party Express rally participants tried to reach their destination.  Even after exiting the interstate, another one and a half mile backup greeted them along Route 30 just to get to the site. 

The location of the Tea Party Express rally was estimated to hold 5,000 – 6,000 people, yet more than 10,000 people crammed into the location.  Mind you, this is Barack Hussein Obama’s “home state” the site of the most successful Tea Party Express rally yet.

At one point during the rally, it was announced that the crowd had swelled to more than 10,000 people and that the Illinois State Police had shut down the exit ramps at Interstate 80 and Route 30, preventing thousands more from attending.

We do have to credit the New Lenox police department for their professionalism in how they dealt with the crowd and how their actions helped keep this event problem free. 

About the crowd: No one was “angry” as reported in the Chicago media.  There was alot of concern as people talked and expressed their opinions.  Many including myself brought our children so they could see that in this country we have a Constitutional Right to free speech and that we were exercizing it.

My oldest son (12) was interviewed by Fox News during the rally. I think they liked his sign which said “Glenn Beck 1, White House 0.  39 Communist Czars Left to Go!” with a picture of Glenn Beck on it.  (We’ll be sending video of that to Glenn Beck today.)

My youngest son made it onto the stage to hold his sign which had a piggy bank with the words “Keep Your Hands Off My Piggy Bank – I’m Just A Kid!”  We saw a similar and equally witty sign from another young boy about my sons age which read “I’m only 12 and I owe how much????”

Perhaps the most touching moment of the day yesterday came towards the end of the rally.  A gentleman named “William” (last name being withheld) from Tinley Park Illinois was brought up on stage.  He flew more than 30 combat missions during World War II. 

His sign which is towards the end of the video below said he fought for his country 60 years ago, and he came to the rally to fight for his country again.  His presence on stage moved the entire crowd, some of us shed a tear or two in gratitude for this man’s continued service to our country.

While I’d love to post pictures of my and my family’s day at the Tea Party Express rally yesterday, there are some very mean chatters on a certain voice chat program that would relish the opportunity to do despicable things to them.  A few said I had “brainwashed” my own children into going.  These people’s hatred against anyone who holds a different opinion of theirs and “The One’s” certainly knows no bounds, and I simply won’t subject my family to that kind of criticism. Attack me all you want, but my family is out of bounds.

Here’s a video of yesterday.  I did not take it, and I don’t know the name of the person who did otherwise I’d give them full credit.  At one point in the video (which I will not disclose) I can be seen holding up my sign.  (See yesterday’s blog entry for a picture of the sign.)

All in all it was a great day, and I’m very glad I and my family went.  Even in a crowd that large, we managed to see friends, neighbors and fellow church members, and that was a pleasant surprise.

In closing, I want to offer my thanks to the Tea Party Express organizers in New Lenox for their fantastic efforts.  The Tea Party Express folks told the crowd this was their biggest gathering to date – in Barack Hussein Obama’s back yard no less.  I wonder what it says about the lack of trust in this “President” in his own home state.

Greeting The Tea Party Express

Today we greet the Tea Party Express in Illinois, my home state.

Last night my children and I (ages 12 and 10) made our posters for the Tea Party.  I thought I’d share them with you all today. 

I’ve been looking forward to today and meeting several people who I’ve chatted with on Free Republic these many years, but have never had a chance to meet.  Especially looking forward to meeting Jim Robinson, the creator of Free Republic.

If you haven’t been following the Tea Party express, it’s been wildly successful everywhere it’s been.

Here are our posters for today. 

My Poster which I made yesterday using GIMP, and printed with a program called Poster8:

nobama noczars nosocialism

This printed very nicely on a 30” x 38” poster board and is crystal clear. 

The best thing about this poster in my opinion is the quite unhappy look on Obama’s face.  When If ound it online, it simply screamed “pick me!  pick me!” for my poster. 

When I finished printing and assembling the poster, the wife and kids just loved it. 

When I created it, I wanted to create a simple, memorable message using “NoBama, NoCzars, NoSocialism.”   Those three lines really touch on what I’ve been hearing out and about as I listen to people talking on the train as I go to work, or when I’m out to lunch overhearing conversations in restaurants. 

The “Drain The Swamp!” message reflects my frustration not with the Democrats (I’d never vote for them) but with the Republican Party for starting the whole bail-out mess before Bush left office.  Like the Democrats, they cannot be trusted with our money!

My oldest son is a huge Glenn Beck fan.  connors poster

Frankly, I can’t stand Glenn  Beck because he gets way too emotional on his show however lately he’s done a really good job in shining the light on the Obama Administration and he’s widely credited for getting Van Jones to resign from the White House.  My oldest son’s poster reflects his thoughts and opinions on Glenn Beck and Obama’s “Czars.”  While I helped him to layout how his poster would look, I didn’t edit his content in any way.  His poster is his idea, his own words.  This is a kid who’s reading Ayn Rand at 12 and really does understand the difference between Capitalism, Socialism and Communism.

My youngest son is ten years old and is always asking what things cost.  He saves his allowance and takes on extra chores to earn money to buy the things he wants.  Part of raising a child is to teach them how to use their money wisely and to understand the true cost of things.  So when my youngest son asked me “Dad, how much will this cost me?” he was asking about Obama’s health care reform.

So we sat down and turned it into a math problem and worked on it together.  Here’s what we came up with: Obama’s health care plan will cost every man, woman and child living in this country an additional tax burden of at least $50,000 each, and that’s just for the “cost” of Obama’s proposal, it doesn’t include the interest on that money. 

kevin posterWhen my youngest son asked me “Dad, do I have to pay that  money?” I responded yes he would.  He wasn’t happy with that answer, and his poster for today reflects his own ideas, opinions and words.

I helped him lay out what he wanted to say, and added the effects that he wanted on his poster.  The piggy bank graphic he found himself via google.

In a moment that would make any dad proud, he also asked if he could put my blog name on his poster and of course I obliged.  Of course his older brother didn’t want anything to do with having dad’s blogname on his poster, but what can you expect from an almost-teenager with his own forming opinions?

So later this morning we’re off to greet the Tea Party express just a few miles down the road from us.  The kids have been looking forward to this all week and honestly as their dad I’m proud that they’re taking such an interest in how their country works at such young ages. 

Later today I’ll post some pictures of the rally.

Watching The World Burn

Some men aren’t looking for anything logical.

They don’t want money.

They can’t be bought, bullied, reasoned or negotiated with.

Some men just want to watch the world burn.

While our community organizer of a President has been busy nationalizing the banking and automobile industries and (trying to) do the same with our health care system, the rest of the world is slowly but surely being lit on fire. 

Surely we cannot count on the lamestream media to tell us these things because they’re too busy providing air cover for “The One” and telling the rest of us that we’re wrong to oppose Barack Hussein Obama’s socialist (I say Marxist) policies.

While Obama and the media haven’t been paying attention to the rest of the world, two important developments have happened that directly impact the United States of America.  Our nation, our people and our way of life have been put at great risk by a “President” that has no clue how to manage world affairs. 

America is no longer the leader of the free world.  Freedom and Democracy are being openly mocked by our enemies, they are quite literally spitting in our faces every chance they get.

North Korea, one of the members of the “axis of evil” has reached the final stage in uranium enrichment (weaponization) which would give them the capability to place nuclear weapons atop medium to long range missiles and further threaten not just its neighbors, but the United States directly.  North Korea also continues its push to weaponize plutonium which is a second way of making a nuclear bomb.

What is the Obama administration doing to deter North Korea’s nuclear weapons ambitions?  Nothing, and it’s making our allies very nervous.  British Foreign Secretary David Miliband is now openly calling for a “unified international response” to North Korea’s latest nuclear statements that they’ve reached weaponsization stage for uranium.  He said “It shows that 2009 and 2010 are the years when the non-proliferation treaty is being tested as never before and when there needs to be an extra drive from all of us” – referring to the entire United Nations.

Clearly the United States has completely lost the leadership role on North Korea.

Meanwhile In Iran …..

A recently declassified intelligence document from the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) argues that the key Iranian figure behind the 1988 downing of Pan-Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland was Ali Akbar Mohtashemi, the former Iranian ambassador to Syria and later Minister of the Interior. The attack led to the killing of 270 innocent civilians.

Mohtashemi was closely connected to Abu Nidal and his terrorist groups, and was a long time friend of Nidal.  He was paid ten million dollars in cash and gold to carry out terrorist activities and was the terrorist directly paid to bomb Pan Am flight 103 in retaliation for the accidental shoot down of an Iranian Airbus.

Dore Gold, in his book “The Rise of Nuclear Iran” says that for years there have been suspicions of Iran’s role in the Lockerbie bombing of Pan Am 103.

According to the London Sunday Times, on August 18, Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al-Megrahi, the Libyan intelligence officer who was just freed by Scotland, instructed his attorneys to produce documentation on the Iranian role. The attorneys had another DIA document that stated that "The bombing of the Pan Am flight was conceived, authorized, and financed by Ali-Akbar (Mohtashemi)."

In Gold’s book he reveals through the same recently de-classified intelligence documents from the DIA that Mohtashemi was also instrumental in the 1983 U.S. Marine Barracks attacks in Beirut in which 241 U.S. Marines were killed. 

Mohtashemi is also a founding member of Hizbullah, which the entire world knows is an Iranian backed and funded international terrorist organization.

Most recently Mohtashemi has been working closely with Hossein Moussavi in Iran in the wake of the June Presidential elections in Iran.  Mohtashemi’s role in trying to overturn Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s regime is to install an even more anti-west government and to use Iran’s missile capabilities combined with their nuclear weapons program to attack Israel. 

Why do I write about Iran and North Korea  today?  Well, there are two  reasons. 

First it proves how utterly incompetent Barack Hussein Obama is in foreign affairs.  Back on March 20th of this year just three months into his “Presidency” Obama issued an unprecedented videotaped appeal to Iran offering a “new beginning” of relations between both countries after more than 30 years.  Quoting Obama:

“My administration is now committed to diplomacy that addresses the full range of issues before us, and to pursuing constructive ties,” Mr. Obama said in a message that was released to select broadcast outlets in the Middle East and was timed for the Nowruz holiday celebration in Iran.

Reaching out directly to Tehran and the Mullah’s, Obama said:

“This process will not be advanced by threats. We seek instead engagement that is honest and grounded in mutual respect.”

He said the United States wanted Iran to take its “rightful place in the community of nations”

Second, we now have all the proof we need to see just how spot-on George W. Bush was in calling Iran, Iraq and North Korea “the axis of evil.”  As we now know, Iran funded Abu Nidal and his terrorist organization’s bombing of Pan Am 103.  Iran also funded the bombing of the U.S. Marine barracks in Beirut in 1983.  Iran also funds Hizbullah, of which Abu Nidal was one of it’s founding members.

At the opening of the War in Iraq, Abu Nidal was a guest of none other than Saddam Hussein, who was using Abu Nidal to train terrorists inside Iraq to carry out terrorist attacks against as yet unnamed targets but presumably the United States and our allies.

While there is much to disagree about as it pertains to the Bush Presidency, on this specific issue, George W. Bush had it exactly right in labeling Iran, Iraq and North Korea as the “axis of evil.”

To those who would say that Iran and Iraq are “mortal enemies” and would never cooperate with each other, we label you complete fools.  Iran funded Abu Nidal, who was helping Saddam Hussein train terrorists inside Iraq.  Surely the old Communist saying “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” is appropriate here.

Some men (Barack Obama) are content to strike the match and sit idly by watching while the world burns.

Van Jones Resigns, Leaves White House

Yes, we know.  Glen Beck 1, Van Jones & White House 0.

Call me crazy, but this seems to be something concocted up by the White House or media to distract our attention.  Everything that’s come out about Van Jones has been known since last February.  He was setup to be a scape-goat from the beginning.  As soon as Obama got in trouble on something there were plans in place to throw one of their own, in this case Van Jones to the proverbial wolves.

As I’ve always said, while these types of distractions are going on, keep your eyes on Congress or the White House to see what else they’re trying to sneak by us.

(See above.)

HotAirPundit has the text of Van Jones’ resignation letter, which was submitted at 12:00am Sunday morning.  I can’t think of any other time in history that a White House appointee (“Czar”) resigned in the middle of the night like this.

Surely Obama’s been disgraced.
