  1. An Unconstitutional Nobel SNIPS

    … Does the Constitution allow him to accept the award?

    Article I, Section 9, of the Constitution, the emolument clause, clearly stipulates: “And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince or foreign State.”

    Thus the Nobel Prize is an emolument, and a foreign one to boot.

    Moreover, the money is not his to give away. It belongs to the United States: A federal statute provides that if the president accepts a “tangible or intangible present” for more than a minimal value from any foreign government, the gift “shall become the property of the United States.”

  2. I wondered if you all have heard about this treaty Obama is to sign in Dec. which will essentially give our soveignty to a world govt.? It apparently has to do with the climate change bill. I am worried about it and there seems to be no one talking about it on the blogs.

  3. connie: They discussed at

    Remember that treaties must be ratified by the Senate. With luck, we still have enough patriots in the Senate, despite the Democratic control, to stop this assault on our country.

    The Kyoto Accords were never ratified by the Senate, even when Clinton was president. Most Senators voted against it, and I mean nearly every one.

    Of course, this is the Obamanation; who knows how they will twist arms.

    Be ready to SCREAM at your Senators, if this ridiculous treaty ever comes up for a vote.

    If we want to maintain our sovereignty, then every last one of us has to be ready to let our so-called representatives know that not only won’t we ever vote for them again if they don’t start listening to We the People, we will do everything in our power to see that they are defeated in their next election.

    Then we have to follow through.

    Work against anybody who doesn’t listen to the PEOPLE and for anybody who does listen.

  4. Isn’t this special, folks? Now we have cash for golf carts..or…work it right and get it free!!!

    Day after day, crazy, crazy, crazy!

    • I saw that, too. Totally amazing, isn’t it? These people are supposed to be SOOO smart, yet they can’t even figure out where the loopholes in their stupid programs might be found.

      Being corrupt crooks and liars themselves, you’d think they’d have the foresight to figure out how people WILL scam these “stimulus” programs. On the other hand, they might put the loopholes there on purpose, then tip off their preferred ones. Just another way to “redistribute the wealth.”

  5. It literally makes me sick to my stomach to even post this, but you must read this post at blackfive. Have you no shame? Senators divert $2.6 BILLION in defense spending funds bills to their pet projects, i.e. $25 MILLION for new WWII museum in New Orleans and shocker $20 MILLION for Ted Kennedy Education Institute!!!!!!

    Anyone here know how to find the breakdown of the porkers who are feeding at the trough??

    Dear God, please bless and keep our soldiers safe from harm!


  6. Just saw on FOX. Chicago schools closing due to swine flu.

  7. If it looks like a duck….
    Interesting reading at jbjd

  8. Is this proof that the Republicans are in it with the Democrats? All for the NWO? (a la McCain). Check this out:

    Pay special attention to the Working Families Party and ties to ACORN and Democrats and actual voter fraud in a New York election.


    concerning an upcoming election in New York:
    “Vacant Republican Congressman John M. McHugh
    • First elected: 1992
    • Seat up for election: Tuesday 2 November 2010
    • Vacant Office –
    2 June 2009: President Obama nominates Congressman John M. McHugh for Secretary of the Army.
    16 September 2009: Congressman John M. McHugh is confirmed as Secretary of the Army by the U.S. Senate.
    21 September 2009: Congressman McHugh resigns his Seat.
    29 September 2009: Governor David A. Paterson (Democrat) calls a Tuesday 3 November 2009 special election to fill the seat.

    Democratic William L. “Bill” Owens

    Republican state Assemblymember Dierdre K. “Dede” Scozzafava

    Conservative; (Republican) Douglas L. “Doug” Hoffman”

    So, it’s a three-way race between Democrat, Republican, and Conservative party candidates. The Republicans are mad that Mr. Hoffman left the party to run as a Conservative.

    The Republicans chose Ms. Scozzafava. But check THIS OUT: The Working Families Party endorses MS. SCOZZAFAVA.


    Look at her page:

    Gingrich, King, and apparently ACORN endorse Dede.

    Isn’t that special?

    Is this what they will do in EVERY race across the country? Run stalking horses for the NWO?

    • Michelle Malkin has been absolutely HAMMERING Newt Gingrich (on both her blog and on Twitter) for his support of Scozzafava over Hoffman.

      I have generally supported Newt in the past, but this is a deal-breaker for me. Newt seems to care more about headcount numbers than how the candidate will actually vote once in office.

      Scozzafava would vote like RINO Walter Jones (NC) votes… in my opinion they are both Democratic Socialist wolves in Republican sheep’s clothing.

      RINOs hurt, not help, the Republican party.

      • There’s also a 3-way race in NJ for governor, with the independent guy pulling votes from the Republican, which MIGHT end up putting Corzine back in.

        So, is that guy a stalking horse, too, or is he for real?

        If he’s for real, more power to him, but splitting votes between Republicans and third-party candidates will only keep the Democrats in power longer, which gives them more time to dismantle our Republic and our sovereignty.

        I read that many suspect that if Dede gets elected, she might pull a Specter and switch parties.

        Obama didn’t appoint McHugh to a post in his administration if he wasn’t trying to pick up that seat for a solid NWO 0bot.

  9. From Seoul, Korea A view from their side about O

    Read what the Koreans are talking and now reading about. It is interesting to see how they are looking at our president. Not impressive, and really quite embarrassing for our president to be seen like this. It is beyond sad. It is going to get worse for us before it will for other countries. The article compares him to Hilter and those in the administration are part of the flying circus.
    We can see it, but isn’t it amazing that other countries are picking up on it in only 9 months. The last sentence shows they know what is going on and what we have suspected.

    “For the end, the question that Obama Presidency should be asked is: Who is the director of this extraordinary performance in which Obama plays the leading role?”

    Barack Obama and the Flying Circus
    By Ivan Simic, Director of EU Office
    October 22, 2009

    If we look down the history from 1900 to 2009, we will find only one person who was extremely popular and talked about like President Obama. That person is Adolf Hitler, leader of the Nazi Party and chancellor of Germany

    Despite both men’s popularity; there are more scary similarities between these two leaders: Both Obama and Hitler share similar ancestries: Obama German, Hitler Austrian.

    Interestingly, the author says that O’s ancestors are German?

  10. No Holds Barred..Their thorn speaks again! An Excellent Speech by Former VP Cheney that tells it like it is! Are you listening Obama? I think he calls him a coward

    Oct. 21, 2009 Snips

    Having announced his Afghanistan strategy last March, President Obama now seems afraid to make a decision, and unable to provide his commander on the ground with the troops he needs to complete his mission.

    It’s time for President Obama to make good on his promise. The White House must stop dithering while America’s armed forces are in danger.

    Recently, President Obama’s advisors have decided that it’s easier to blame the Bush Administration than support our troops. This weekend they leveled a charge that cannot go unanswered. The President’s chief of staff claimed that the Bush Administration hadn’t asked any tough questions about Afghanistan, and he complained that the Obama Administration had to start from scratch to put together a strategy.

    In the fall of 2008, fully aware of the need to meet new challenges being posed by the Taliban, we dug into every aspect of Afghanistan policy, assembling a team that repeatedly went into the country, reviewing options and recommendations, and briefing President-elect Obama’s team. They asked us not to announce our findings publicly, and we agreed, giving them the benefit of our work and the benefit of the doubt. The new strategy they embraced in March, with a focus on counterinsurgency and an increase in the numbers of troops, bears a striking resemblance to the strategy we passed to them. They made a decision – a good one, I think – and sent a commander into the field to implement it.

    Now they seem to be pulling back and blaming others for their failure to implement the strategy they embraced. It’s time for President Obama to do what it takes to win a war he has repeatedly and rightly called a war of necessity.

    We understood that organized terrorism is not just a law-enforcement issue, but a strategic threat to the United States.

    The intelligence professionals who got the answers we needed from terrorists had limited time, limited options, and careful legal guidance.

    In the case of Khalid Sheik Muhammed, by the time it was over he was not was not only talking, he was practically conducting a seminar, complete with chalkboards and charts.

    We cannot hope to win a war by talking down our country and those who do its hardest work – the men and women of our military and intelligence services. They are, after all, the true keepers of the flame.

  11. I’m glad that Cheney spoke out, but I wish he’d have said more BEFORE the election left us in this quandary.

    While the country goes to hell, BHO dithers and Michelle Antoinette skips rope.

  12. Bridgette, here’s my favorite paragraph from Simic’s article:

    “However, this ongoing entertainment and late night shows by Obama and his sidekick’s are not fascinating anymore, they became more like harassment. No matter if we read the news papers, watch TV, listen to the radio or go online, Obama and his circus-men are there 24/7 to remind us that they exist, in case we forgot. ”

    Amen, brother.

  13. I’ll be darned…the guy is finally setting some real records.. What award should he be given?

    Obama Suffers Historic Drop in Approval Rating
    President Obama’s approval rating dropped to 53 percent in the third quarter from 62 percent in the second, according to Gallup.

    The 9 percentage point decline is the largest for an elected president during that period of his first year in office that Gallup has ever recorded, going back to 1953.

    Obama’s 9 point slump was one of the steepest for a president during any portion of his first year in office

    Obama’s third quarter rating also places him below average for any president in any quarter, going back to 1945.

  14. What is the right hand doing while the left hand is taking on FOX? Or are they really taking on Beck and Hannidy? How low can he go? I do believe he has taken the shine and glow off the presidency.
    Will the MSM go along with the WH game plan or will they rise to protect FOX? What a shameful message and more proof of their intention to silence opposition and institute total control of the media. MSM are you figuring this out yet? You are just part of the propaganda machine. Chicago, will you take these suckers back?…we are on our hands and knees begging you to do so!

    Obama: Fox News Is Like ‘Talk Radio’
    Oct. 22, 2009

    Fox News is “operating basically as talk radio,” President Barack Obama charged in an interview with NBC News just airing, according to a report in The Hill.

    The latest exchange is but the latest installment in a war of words between the cable news channel and the president’s aides, who have gone on the record saying that Fox is not a real “news station.”

    The President made it clear that he agreed with his own people.

    • Bridgette, there was some good news in that the WH press pool stood up for FOX yesterday. They were going to have Feinberg give interviews to the other 4 media outlets in the pool, but specifically excluded FOX. The other 4 said that if he didn’t talk to FOX, too, then they wouldn’t interview him, so the WH backed off, but shortened the interviews by half.

  15. Speed reader reading Healthcare Reform Bill on FOX news-wow ! Hahahahahahahahhaahahahaha ! Amazing !

  16. Maddoff associate dead in pool today. Jeffrey Picower….made the most money on the deals…body no sign of trama per police…..

  17. Just read an excellent letter from someone who’s been there and by God’s grace, returned alive. Be sure and read the comments that follow! We are not alone, friends! Spread the word!

    God Bless the USA and all our heroes

  18. By the way…… I was not convinced that the “speedreader”. Really gave an account of what he “read”. I thought he gave his own talking points………..
    He seemed in favor of a public option from what I heard ( but I didn’t hear the entire program)

  19. Hi Ali
    I don’t think he is doing so well… His numbers are going down.
    Have you heard anything from terriK? Both she and Leo must be in Hawaii as neither have been back to their sites.

    • Hi Aone 🙂
      I didn’t know terriK was MIA — I don’t keep up with her blog.
      I think Leo distanced himself from terriK when her blog went off on a crazy wild tangent — something about bo possibly being of noble hawaiian ancestry — crazy.
      As for Leo MIA, I don’t know — I guess he’ll pop up when he has something to say.

      • Nobility crazy ali ? Maybe not… Better read my Hawaii thread. terrik found alot of her crazy info here. Then she started digging and found her own info too. Nothing is crazy anymore ali. Never say never. She has a real life job she is keeping up with too and a deadline to meet. Nothing connected. She may have taken a fast trip also. She and Leo are quite busy, but not with anything “crazy”. Wait and see………You may be very surprised….Never say never my friends…….

        • lol I stand corrected 🙂
          You’re right Renee, I should never say never in this wild and “crazy” world in which we find ourselves — who would have thought the U.S. govt. would place a man in the presidential office who, as a result of having a non-u.s. citizen Kenyan father does not qualify for potus since he is thus not a natural born citizen — and allowing the concealment of ALL records despite outcry by american citizens — THAT is CRAZY!

  20. ‘Monsters – New & Old’ ” …annual contest encourages students to mix and match genetic parts to program spectacular results…chunks of DNA called BioBricks…and build new creatures for themselves.” Can we say they are playing God now??

    Government Intimidation – REAL ID and the PASS ACT. America’s Surveillance Society “Granting government,…including police, too much authority will turn America into a police state…” Long read but interesting. Need to stay alert to any updates locally and nationally.

  21. Good article by David Horowitz – Free speech under attack – The hour is already late.

    God Bless the USA and Israel

  22. Ali
    Her blog did seem off the wall , but then she came upon very very interesting connections at which time she took all those pages off line ….
    Leo needs to certify his allegations to bring quo warrento proceeding, so their work does cross over.
    They both.went underground.

    • I guess Renee is correct in that I should at least read up on the material (and have an open mind) — (but I do think it outlandish) — still, when/if I have time, I’ll check out the material.

      • Ali, if you do get a chance to check out the History of Hawaii, go for it. It is fascinating. We take it for granted as merely the 50th State but it really was once its own Nation-a Kingdom and its true history deserves to be learned.

        Insofar as that whackjob Barry and his warped family are concerned, they were only “immigrants”. Latcher-ons with an agenda on a mission. (VP of a Bank without a degree./ Furniture salesman? Sure, okay)

        The bogus POTUS spent very little time in his so called “Home State”. Mere years as an adolescent. He was way too busy to visit his Ph.D “mom” when she was dying. She herself wasn’t even in Hawaii but maybe a total of 10 minutes all together. LOL! She was drug there and split the first chance she got.

        He’s so screwed up he doesn’t even know where he’s from. He spent 23 years in TUCC and that’s all I need to know about him. Talk about audacity, Barry.

        He’s a domestic enemy and that is why he is vigorously hiding his true identity and bona fides. He uses the good people of Hawaii just as he did the people of Chicago. Pathetic.

  23. renee
    Have you been in contact with her?
    There are interesting things happening

    • She has a big work project and life got wild when her blog started. I think she got friends to help her with the blog while she is busy. She is still keeping up with all of it but everything is happening very fast… are right AOne, interesting is right…….

  24. ACORN Aims to Tip New Jersey Election in Corzine’s Favor
    November 2, 2009 SNIPS

    Fearing a potentially devastating Democratic loss, the highly controversial Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) group and its affiliated organizations are gearing up to tip the scales and re-elect the beleaguered incumbent in the hard-fought New Jersey gubernatorial race

    “ACORN is heavily involved in Gov. Jon Corzine’s get-out-the-vote operation, but is maintaining a low profile at the insistence of the Corzine campaign,” Matthew Vadum, senior editor of the conservative Capital Research Center think tank, tells Newsmax. “If Corzine manages to win reelection, he doesn’t want the victory tainted by his close association with ACORN.”

    Wall Street Journal columnist and author John Fund wrote Tuesday that “Plenty of reasons exist for suspecting absentee fraud may play a significant role in tomorrow’s Garden State contests.”

    ACORN-linked groups from neighboring Pennsylvania and New York “appear to have moved into the state,” Fund wrote.

    New York’s Working Families Party also has “moved into” New Jersey, he reports.

    “There are also new opportunities for voting shenanigans in New Jersey,” Vadum says. “Voting by mail is even easier now, thanks to the law Corzine signed.”

  25. O said he wasn’t going to Copenhagen…We were warned
    by the Brit about this! Does this WH ever tell the truth or do we always have to hear it second hand?

    Gore Expects Obama to Attend Dec. Climate Talks
    Tuesday, November 3

    Former Vice President Al Gore says he believes President Barack Obama will attend the December climate talks in Copenhagen to emphasize his administration’s commitment to safeguarding the environment.

    In an interview Tuesday on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” Gore said that while he had not spoken to Obama about the global talks, “I feel certain he will” attend.

    The Copenhagen talks are aimed at negotiating a follow-on agreement to the Kyoto Protocol, which required 37 industrial nations to cut carbon emissions by an average 5 percent from 1990 levels by 2012, when the accord expires. The U.S. rejected Kyoto as unfair and harmful to the U.S. economy, even though Gore was one of the negotiators.

    • Plus, Bridgette, he needs desperately to be on the international stage as its been over a week now.

      Anybody know the roolz about collecting a monetary prize as a sitting POTUS? Hmmmm, aren’t we supposed to believe he’s the President of our Republic?

      • I thought I posted that information. I will post again. He isn’t allowed by law to take the check in his name…it belongs to the USA. He has no authority to determine where the money goes either. Just like he wasn’t allowed by law to sit as Pres. of the Security Council; as that was unconstitutional. King Abdullah also gave him the “Order of Merit” which is the highest award or honor in Saudi, and he wasn’t supposed to wear or take it, but he did. He makes up his own rules as they go along. That darn ole’ constitution is so outdated!

        An Unconstitutional Nobel
        October 16, 2009

        Be very concerned about him going to Copenhagen. According to Lord Monckton, they are going for a One World Government, and that is the first time Lord M has seen the wording like that in any treaty. Before it was stated as One World Governance. Ambassador Bolton said we shouldn’t worry because it will need something like 2/3 of Congress to ratify it according to the constitution. Since we aren’t a country of laws that live by the constitution, we can assume that it won’t matter to him.
        Has he stayed in the WH 5 straight days yet?

  26. Atlas posted the other day that he “said” (FWIW) that he would not attend conference but would be there the second day to accept prize. Glad you posted atlas link, Bridgette, spooky info there…drawings and notes from jail cell confiscated.

    Whoooppppeeee! Finally, a couple of victories but we cannot get over-confident. Still many battles ahead. Also, must keep an eye on the ones who won. Especially Virginia, heard new gov. leans a little at times!!! EVERYONE that gets elected must know WE ARE WATCHING, WE ARE THEIR BOSSES!

  27. Found these two links at They are MUST READS. We all must keep ourselves apprised of all opinions, weigh all thoughts, estimates, etc. and let our conscience, heart and knowledge of history be our guide. Be sure to read all the comments that follow the Telegraph article. Especially Willie (Morgan/Deutsche info), O’Brien, and McAuley (Agenda 21 de-population)

    RedPill, dave m.: would love your thoughts on these if possible. What are we to believe now?

  28. Power Derives from Lawful Authority
    November 01, 2009
    By Jed Gladstein Snips

    The President of the United States has no more legal right to sign a treaty that turns legislative, executive, and judicial functions of our national government over to the United Nations than he has to declare the United States an Islamic Republic and its people henceforward subject to Sharia. Nevertheless, that would be the effect of the proposed United Nations Climate Change Treaty awaiting Mr. Obama’s signature in Copenhagen this coming December.

    The proposed treaty authorizes the establishment of a “government” to transfer wealth from industrial nations to non-industrial nations in payment of a “climate debt” which, the treaty declares, the industrial nations owe on account of burning carbon-based fuels. The newly created international government is to have the authority to decide issues relating to carbon emissions in signatory nations, the power to levy what amounts to carbon taxes on signatory nations, and the power to enforce its levies without reference to the will of the people who live in the signatory nations.

    Thus, the proposed Climate Change Treaty demands that:

    * An unelected international government is to be established without the American people voting on its establishment or membership;

    * If the American people fail to abide by the legislative edicts of the unelected international government, they will be subject to international enforcement proceedings that are alien to our constitutional ideas of due process, equal protection, personal freedom, and property rights.

  29. Apparently, they are leaving quietly just as they arrived. I have never heard of Susan Crawford, and as the author questions …how many more unknown radicals are planted in the WH? I want to know what aides are worried or concerned and what are the specifics. Funny, this author wrote today that he’d like to be a fly on the wall, and I wanted that privilege yesterday.

    Radicals on the Run?
    November 04, 2009

    How many more Maoists and Van Jones-style radicals are in the Obama administration? Some White House aides are concerned about the radicals in the House, and wonder if it’s not too late to show them the side door at midnight.

    According to the American Spectator, recently-resigned senior advisor Susan Crawford “ran afoul” of senior economics advisor Larry Summers over the Net Neutrality rules that Crawford strongly supported. Apparently Summers only learned how radical the rules were when he started fielding questions from his contacts in the business community.

    The radicals on the inside should be no surprise given some of the visitors from the outside, as reported last week: George Soros (4 visits), S.E.I.U. President and A.C.O.R.N. associate Andy Stern (22 visits), N.O.W. President Kim Gandy (15 visits), John Podesta, President of the Soros-funded Center for American Progress (17 visits), Jesse Jackson (6 visits), Al Sharpton (2 visits) and climate radical Al Gore (4 visits).

    With the likes of John Holdren, Cass Sunstein and Carol Browner at the top of the radical food chain in the White House, not to mention the Radical-In-Chief, one can only speculate at what kind of strange creatures are hiding from the daylight in the recesses of the Obama administration.

  30. Shootings at Ft Hood in Tx. Early reports just out now on FOX.

    • Murderer that killed our soldiers recently converted to Islam, recently transferred from DC, and a friggin psychiatrist!

      Pray for all our brave men and women and their families who sacrifice daily for our freedom.

      God Bless America

  31. From : The Steady Drip Blog. Those that voted yay to Healtcare.
    Yea” Votes on H.R. 3962:

  32. What a contrast to our resident in the WH who hasn’t the decency to do anything…oh, well, he went to Camp David for the rest of the week-end after getting the important Health care reform bill passed. Did anyone see this mentioned on TV or did it just come across on the wire? Most likely it was just on the wire, for to publicize it would only diminish O’s image.

    They did this without fanfare because it was the “right” thing to do.

    Thank you for supporting our troops Pres. and Mrs. Bush!!

    George W. Bush Visits Fort Hood, Wounded Soldiers

    FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) — Former President George W. Bush and his wife, Laura, visited wounded soldiers and their families near the site of the worst mass shooting on an Army post in the United States.

    The Bushes made their private visit to Fort Hood’s Darnall Army Medical Center on Friday night. Bush spokesman David Sherzer said in an e-mail that the couple thanked Fort Hood’s military leaders and hospital staff for the “amazing care they are providing.”
