Government Scandals Galore!
Let the Indictments Begin!
The October 3rd, 2011 issue of Globe magazine features the cover story “Cops’ Secret Obama File.” Their teaser says, ” President Obama is panicking over a secret police file loaded with evidence proving that his birth certificate – is a PHONY! Read all about what’s in the file, now in the hands of two police departments, and why it’s driving the fearful President to drink!”
As always, the Globe keeps the information alive to those who aren’t getting their news through Obama’s propaganda arms in the MSM, or via the internet.
How much pressure is Obama and the White House under right now? Let’s look at a few notable issues they are facing this September. Which one will bring indictments?
- “Fast and Furious” or Gun Runner that involves multiple agencies including the Department of Justice, Eric Holder, and ATF.
- Obama Can’t Pass E-Verify
- Obama’s Use of a Fraudulent Social Security Card
- Sheriff Joe Arpaio rounds up a Posse to investigate Obama’s phony, photo-shopped Birth Certificate
- Rep. King is calling for an investigation into Omar Onyango Obama’s immigration status and release as well as the backdoor amnesty that involves ICE not upholding the law regarding illegal aliens, and instead prioritizing deportation and arrests in accordance with the failed and never passed ” Dream Act.”
- Rep. Darrell Issa‘s newly launched investigation into Solyndra and their subsequent bankruptcy after being given $535 million in taxpayer funds through the Stimulus Fund. Shortly thereafter they applied for more money.
- Another company is coming under scrutiny and investigation by Rep. Issa. It is a satellite broadband company in Virginia called LightSquared, whose majority owner is an investment fund run by Democratic donor Philip Falcone .
- Associated with the LightSquared investigation, a four-star Air Force general who oversees U.S. Space Command, Gen. William Shelton, said the White House tried to pressure him to change his testimony to make it more favorable to the company. This was an attempt by the WH to bias testimony and intentionally mislead Congress.
- Democrats are calling for anyone to oppose or challenge Obama
- Progressive democrats are abandoning Obama as a presidential candidate and calling for challengers. A Chicago Tribune columnist, Steve Chapman, titled his article, “Why Obama Should Withdraw,” and suggested that Hillary take his place. Former NY major, Ed Koch said he won’t vote for Obama because of his stance on Israel. Democratic consultant, James Carville, had one word of advice for Obama: “Panic.”
We hope there is “Panic” at the corrupt White House these days, James, but not because of the threat of a challenger to Obama. We want the fraud that has usurped the presidency to be very concerned about moving out of the White House into the Big House. We want the administration and all those complicit in a multitude of crimes, corruption, conspiracy, and cover-up to really feel the panic and get the justice they deserve. May one or another or all of the above bring this regime to an end. That’s our brand of hope and change.
“Attack Watch” These, Obama!
A scandal or two might have been missed. Just let us know and we will add it to the GROWING list! Perhaps one of the above will become an “October surprise!”
From your keyboard to God’s Eyes, Bridgette. We can only hope and pray. But not for Hillary as understudy.
I found this story again today (2008) and thought it pertinent:
“Democrats, sensing an opportunity to show McCain as out of step with voters, quickly began blasting away.
“I guess if you think that being rich means you’ve got to make $5 million and if you don’t know how many houses you have, then it’s not surprising that you might think the economy was fundamentally strong,” said Barack Obama during a rally this morning in Chester, Virginia. “But if you’re like me, and you’ve got one house, or you are like the millions of people who are struggling right now to keep up with their mortgage so they don’t lose their home, you might have a different perspective.”
The Obama campaign quickly produced an ad noting that McCain actually owns seven homes worth $13 million; as an image of the White House is shown, a narrator intones: “Here’s one house America can’t afford to let John McCain move into.”
The onslaught by the Obama campaign was greeted in kind by McCain.
“Does a guy who made more than $4 million last year, just got back from vacation on a private beach in Hawaii and bought his own million-dollar mansion with the help of a convicted felon really want to get into a debate about houses?” asked McCain spokesman Brian Rogers. “Does a guy who worries about the price of arugula and thinks regular people ‘cling’ to guns and religion in the face of economic hardship really want to have a debate about who’s in touch with regular Americans?”
The McCain campaign also promised to put Obama’s ties to Tony Rezko front and center in the race now, insisting that the Illinois senator’s decision to attack on the home front (heyooo!) made a discussion of his ties to the convicted real estate developer fair game.”
Has anybody brought up this issue yet? I don’t remember seeing it here. If so, sorry: http://changingwind.org/index/news.php?extend.181.2
“Okay, so I go to the White House web link for the “American Jobs Act,” http://www.whitehouse.gov/sites/default/files/omb/legislative/reports/american-jobs-act.pdf
(Please try to get a copy of the act, as when I posted this to the website, the indentation and such is lost). A friend pointed out that section 376 mentions that States lose their Sovereign Immunity under this section, and it appears this is true.”

TO THE CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES:
Today, I am pleased to submit to the Congress the enclosed legislative proposal, the “American Jobs Act of 2011,” together with a section-by-section analysis of the legislation.
Lastly, this legislation is fully paid for. The legislation includes specific offsets to close corporate tax loopholes and asks the wealthiest Americans to pay their fair share that more than cover the cost of the jobs measures.
SEC. 376. FEDERAL AND STATE IMMUNITY.
(a) Abrogation of State Immunity- A State shall not be immune under the 11th Amendment to the Constitution from a suit brought in a Federal court of competent jurisdiction for a violation of this Act.
(b) Waiver of State Immunity-
(1) IN GENERAL-
(A) WAIVER- A State’s receipt or use of Federal financial assistance for any program or activity of a State shall constitute a waiver of sovereign immunity, under the 11th Amendment to the Constitution or otherwise, to a suit brought by an employee or applicant for employment of that program or activity under this Act for a remedy authorized under Section 375(c) of this Act.
(B) DEFINITION- In this paragraph, the term `program or activity’ has the meaning given the term in section 606 of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (42 U.S.C. 2000d-4a).
(2) EFFECTIVE DATE- With respect to a particular program or activity, paragraph (1) applies to conduct occurring on or after the day, after the date of enactment of this Act, on which a State first receives or uses Federal financial assistance for that program or activity.
(c) Remedies Against State Officials- An official of a State may be sued in the official capacity of the official by any employee or applicant for employment who has complied with the applicable procedures of this Act, for relief that is authorized under this Act.
(d) Remedies Against the United States and the States- Notwithstanding any other provision of this Act, in an action or administrative proceeding against the United States or a State for a violation of this Act, remedies (including remedies at law and in equity) are available for the violation to the same extent as such remedies would be available against a non-governmental entity.
Sovereign immunity in the United States is the legal privilege by which the American federal, state, and tribal governments cannot be sued. Local governments in most jurisdictions enjoy immunity from some forms of suit, particularly in tort. Foreign governments enjoy immunity from suit, as provided in the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act.
It looks fishy Miri…
I don’t think Terresa is interpreting Section 376 correctly. Any other opinions? So what I think the paragraphs mean is that they (various governments..local, state or Federal) can be sued by citizens…in other words, they give up their legal privilege that says they can’t be sued by an applicant for employment. Is there a lawyer that can correctly interpret the meaning of those paragraphs?
Obama’s Jobs Bill Ends State Sovereignty – Wake Up Governors!!
Terresa on September 19, 2011
Section 376 of Obama’s tax and spend “jobs” bill ends state sovereignty, turns our Republic into a dictatorship and destroys the foundation upon which our country was built. The fundamental transformation of America is almost complete.
I wish I were a lawyer, but them being mostly lawyers, I don’t trust them any further than I can throw them to not be sneaky slimy snakes. This is like with Obamacare. Pass it. Pass it now, “so we can find out what’s in it.” Oh, Nancy. All kinds of goodies. 🙂
We know already that Barry and his peeps are selling this jops bill to the “persons of color”, meaning they’re being sold a bill of goods that the jops will be mostly reserved for them–even the illegals. Somebody said that’s the point of the sovereign immunity waiver clause. Because so long as the illegals have “complied with the applicable procedures of this Act” if a state like AZ still won’t give them a jop under the program, then they can SUE AZ to the same extent that other non-government entities can be sued.
In other words, the tort lawyers can sue for multi-million-dollar settlements, just like they sue tobacco companies. This is class warfare on steroids. It’s a poison pill.
If the states refuse the money (and of course it will be red states doing so), then Barry will argue to their people, “Your Republican governor/state government doesn’t want you to have jops. That’s why you’re still unemployed.”
On the other hand, if they take the money, there’s that poison pill of a waiver. Then they do things Barry’s way or else get bankrupted by federal lawsuits. Amnesty for illegals in another way. He doesn’t enforce immigration laws and he tricks the states into HAVING to let them be employed. HE promised La Raza that he’d do an end run around Congress. This is part of it. Barry the Magnificent. The great and powerful O.
If the Republicans are STUPID ENOUGH to pass this bill with bull like that in it, then it’s time for We the People to assert OUR rights under the 10th amendment.
Besides which, how can it be legal to pass a law that waives a Constitutional immunity? That sounds unconstitutional to me. Has this ever been done before? Wish I were a lawyer, then I might know.
Ok, so now Big Government has weighed in:
“The American Jobs Act exposes states to frivolous lawsuits while providing a boon to trial lawyers seeking government settlement money. The President made no mention of this boon to the trial bar in his national jobs speech. Nor does the glossy overview of the American Jobs Act (Act) on the Whitehouse website mention this gift. Instead, one must delve deep within the bill to perceive this threat to state governments— 376 sections into it to be exact. … Such litigation is a boon for trial lawyers but serves as a millstone around the neck of drowning taxpayers.
The Eleventh Amendment of the United States Constitution states:
The Judicial power of the United States shall not be construed to extend to any suit in law or equity, commenced or prosecuted against one of the United States by Citizens of another State, or by Citizens or Subjects of any Foreign State.
… Without this doctrine of sovereign immunity, lawsuits brought by private individuals could result in states being forced to pay monetary damages for alleged violations. People with valid claims against the State would not be the only ones collecting monetary damages. As those experienced in trial law will attest, settlements are often paid out to those launching lawsuits even when the merits of the case are questionable.[can you say, Jesse Jackson?] … Forcing states to forfeit their constitutional protections in exchange for federal funds comes at taxpayer expense. [That’s the goal. Redistribute. Subjugate. Control.] As with the ObamaCare bill, pausing to READ the bill rather the simply passing it would alert Congress and the public to the special interest bonanza represented within.”
This guy has the same idea!
Will Scandal Drive Obama Off the 2012 Ticket?
September 21, 2011
By Monty Pelerin Snips
President Obama will not run in 2012. That prediction seems reasonable in light of the following:
1. His presidency is in shambles, shriveling up before our eyes.
2. His political poll numbers continue to weaken.
3. Unemployment remains stubbornly high for a period of time not seen since the Great Depression.
4. The economy is listless, consumer sentiment is in the sewer, foreclosures are ratcheting up, and the next financial crisis appears near.
5. No economic variable has improved; some continue to worsen.
6. The nation risks sovereign bankruptcy as a result of Obama’s out-of-control spending.
7. Obama is out of ideas and obviously well beyond his depth.
Every time Obama speaks, he shows himself as more out of touch with the country, its people, and their needs. He is an obvious embarrassment to many. He has alienated independents and even some liberals. He now appears to have adopted a strategy to appeal to the most radical in his party.
Loyalty in politics starts and stops with personal self-interest. The old saying, “If you want a friend in Washington, get a dog,” still holds. Obama has few friends, even in his own party. Fortunately he has a dog. I hope it likes him, because most of the country no longer does.
How does it end? My guess is that investigations go forward and are used to leverage Obama out of office. He will “choose” not to run for reelection. He understands Chicago-style politics, even when he is on the wrong end.
His psyche is such that he must be loved, if not worshiped, and that will never be again, at least not in this country.
Congress should also investigate why Malik’s “foundation” received that special retroactive reprieve (aka preemptive pardon) for violating IRS rules.
So true. I thought someone called for that to be done. Didn’t they go to the IRS for them to investigate? Lots of good that would do anyway with Geithner in charge of the IRS.
They are beyond desperate! This follows Days of Rage that weren’t! Arrest Stephen Lerner for anti-American behavior and inciting lawlessness!

He sounds like a lawless idiot.
Barry thinks about violating the rules. He violated the greatest rule: The CONSTITUTION.
This sounds very much like sedition and treason.
“Us” and “them.” “The other side.”
He’s comparing what he wants to the Arab Springs. Those were intended to, and did, OVERTHROW GOVERNMENTS.
He wants to shut down Houston. Community wide strikes. People should just move into “abandoned” homes. This was something ACORN wanted, iirc. Squatters in other people’s homes/property. He thinks this is going to “sweep the country” starting in the middle of September. NOT. The hippies slept in.
“This is our time?” He’s using Barry’s old slogan? So yesterday, Lerner.
When will the cops investigate Barry’s AMENDED birth certificate?
I considered Sheriff Joe a cop…and the Cold Case Possee is investigating in AZ. You can read about it at the following link if you missed it.

Don’t Turn a Blind Eye: E-Verify
September 20, 2011 Snips
The markup of Rep. Lamar Smith’s Legal Workforce Act (H.R. 2885) in the House Judiciary coincided with news from around the country that emphasized the need for his national E-Verify bill. While President Obama and other officials around the country are shielding more than 7 million illegal workers, more than 22 million citizens and legal immigrants want a full-time job but can’t find one.
Vermont’s Gov. Peter Shumlin seemed to sum up the state of immigration enforcement in the U.S. when he told a local NBC affiliate that his state’s policy on immigration enforcement is to “look the other way as much as we can” (“Vt. Gov. Wants Police Directive On Migrant Workers,” 9/15/2011).
The Obama administration has identified hundreds of thousands of people who have illegally overstayed their visas. All but 2,000 of them will get a free pass because they don’t meet President Obama’s enforcement priorities (“U.S. Inquiry Traces Foreigners With Visas,” New York Times, 9/13/2011).
It is becoming increasingly clear that Rep. Lamar Smith’s Legal Workforce Act, H.R. 2885 is the only way unemployed citizens and legal immigrant workers are going to get access to the more than 7 million illegally-occupied non-farm jobs.
The Legal Workforce Act is an immigration jobs bill that cracks down on illegal employment and identity theft. Unlike the approach taken by President Obama and others above, the Legal Workforce Act addresses immigration as a jobs policy.

LightSquared: Obama’s Dangerous Broadband Boondoggle
By Michelle Malkin • September 21, 2011 Snips
If you thought the half-billion-dollar, stimulus-funded Solyndra solar company bust was a taxpayer nightmare, just wait. If you thought the botched Fast and Furious border gun-smuggling surveillance operation was a national security nightmare, hold on. Right on the heels of those two blood-boilers comes yet another alleged pay-for-play racket from the most ethical administration ever.
*Soros Fund Management —surprise, surprise — is a “signficant investor” in Falcone’s enterprise.
The FCC Chairman’s refusal to attend the hearing comes in the wake of allegations that the White House pressured Gen. Shelton to change his testimony to the Committee, and while Sen. Grassley is still pursuing the FCC Chairman for details of FCC communications with and about LightSquared in the run up to approval of the January 2011 waiver.
Welcome to LightSquared. It’s a toxic mix of venture socialism (to borrow GOP Sen. Jim DeMint’s apt phrase), campaign finance influence-peddling and perilous corner-cutting all rolled into one.
So, what’s greasing LightSquared’s skids? Hint: It used to be known as “Skyterra.” In 2005, Obama put $50,000 into the speculative firm — raising eyebrows even among his water-carriers at The New York Times. The paper noted that Skyterra’s principal backers at the time of the investment included four Obama “friends and donors who had raised more than $150,000 for his political committees.”
Eric Holder: Seriously, We’re Going to Close Gitmo Pretty Soon
By Doug Powers • September 20, 2011 Snips
Attorney General wants everybody to know that he still hasn’t forgotten about following through with President Obama’s executive order to close Gitmo by January…. of 2010:
BRUSSELS (AP) — U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said Tuesday that the Obama administration will do its utmost to close the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay before next year’s presidential elections despite political opposition.
In the spirit of bipartisanship, if the Obama administration is serious about putting Gitmo out of business, I’d like to offer a suggestion that is tried and true: Declare the prison a “green jobs” hub, loan it a half billion taxpayer dollars, then hire the detainees to manufacture and sell solar panels and windmill parts. The place would be shuttered before next summer.
Andy Martin is in the news again. He is working quietly on exposing Obama. He is off to Hawaii once again and will be there next Tuesday…digging and digging.
Did you know he was running for president?
FOX – Southwest Airlines planes have been vandalized with a heat sensitive chemical. Someone is writing on the plane’s bodies (Arab like symbols?) and the symbols only show up after the plane heats up. In other words, the words are invisible until the plane takes off. No one is saying what the “graffiti” says. The news is coming out of the LA airport. SW is handling its investigation as an internal problem, but has notified the FCC. Who will identify the symbols and meaning?
Where do people come up with these ideas?
I think cops hand out those pens so people can secretly mark their valuables. Then, if stolen, the cops can locate the owners when stuff is recovered. Novel use. We the People probably paid for the equipment these jerks used to deface the planes.
The leftist Washington Post is showing the Globe Cover in their article. They even cite WND!
Sheriff Joe Arpaio tasks ‘Cold Case Posse’ to investigate Obama’s birth certificate
By Sarah Anne Hughes [has been so in the tank for Obama]
Sept 20 Snips
You may have thought the authenticity of President Obama’s birth certificate was confirmed once and for all in April. [Only in the Left’s talking points!] Perhaps you never questioned it. But for America’s first African-American president, incongruous questions and doubts about his citizenship, fostered by fiercely partisan politics and a hungry media culture, are still being raised.
Now, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s “Cold Case Posse” has been ordered to investigate the authenticity of President Obama’s birth certificate at the behest of a tea party group.
then the blah, blah, blah of the left.
Iranian Pres Ahmadinejad speaks at the UN this afternoon. He always has worthwhile things to say! Coincidentally, the two Americans who have been kept hostage as Am. spies in Iran were released today. How much was paid for their release? Who paid? I heard yesterday that some country (not the US) paid $1million.
Isn’t he speaking at Columbia U, too? Or dining with the kiddies?
A secret dinner with Im-a-nutjob.
Alot of people walked out on Ahmadinejad speaking I read.
I guess the alumni agree or else they would start withholding their annual donations to the university. Columbia gets lots of publicity for sponsoring a dinner or speech with Ahmadinejad, but it usually appears as negative reviews. The last time this happened, the president of the university came out and said that he didn’t respect Admadinejad, but it was too late and the damage was done. Yet they do it again. They don’t see by doing this it gives him a platform and legitimizes him and his government.
I can see these starry eyed kids being thrilled with the chance to meet a prime minister of a country. Take that group and let them have dinner with the PM of Israel. He would certainly have stories to tell, and might enlightened them in a way that the Iranian sicko can’t.
Who is in charge at that university anyway, and who is setting up these dinners or meetings?
I don’t know. On second thought, I’d volunteer to cook his dinner.
The articles I’ve read have no idea who has paid the bail for the two “spies.” Bail means they are supposed to return..fat chance! So it really is a ransom..and is called that by a couple writers. I know I heard it on the radio yesterday what country it was that paid..a strange one..like Madagascar. (that’s not it..)
One student from Columbia was thrilled to be talking and breaking bread with him. Glenn was questioning why she would want to dine with him..a despot, and tyrannical. She didn’t “get it” no matter what was said. She believes she is taking part in history.
Two Years Later, American Hostages Released from Iran
By John Thorpe
September 21, 2011 snips
Bauer and Fattal, who had been accused of being spies but were, in fact, hikers who got lost in the unmarked border of Iran, were not easy to let go of by the Iranian government. They were excellent bargaining chips for a country whose political leadership is fractured, whose grip on power is waning, and who clearly fears becoming overshadowed by the burgeoning democracies[Iraq?] in the region.
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has pressed before to release the prisoners, typically when he is preparing to take the world stage. And, just on cue, the men were released today, just hours before Ahmadinejad was to make an appearance and speak at the United Nations building in New York City.
The cost of their release was a handsome sum: $500,000 each for the two hikers. Their attorney, Masoud Shafiee, was in the prison earlier that day with signed paperwork, proving that the ransom money had been paid and the funds deposited. Earlier, a judge had signed bail papers. It is unclear at this time who paid the $1 million.

“BOGUS PRESIDENTCY EQUALS MONSTROUS CRIME”
By Paul R. Hollrah
September 20th, 2011 Excerpts:
“For example, if the “natural born citizen” requirement had not represented a major problem at any time in history, why were Democrats suddenly concerned about it in 2003, 2004, and 2005 when a young black man, the son of an American mother and an African father, was emerging as a rising star in their party?
So the question arises, what did Congressmen Snyder and Conyers know that caused them to offer proposed constitutional amendments in the House of Representatives? More specifically, what did they know about Obama’s presidential ambitions and his inability to meet the “natural born citizen” standard, and when did they know it?
Although the Snyder and Conyers proposals might have raised some eyebrows if their attempts to amend the constitution had been widely reported and debated, it was not until the officers of the 2008 Democratic National Convention officially certified Obama and Biden as the party’s candidates that it became evident that something was seriously amiss.”
So what does that tell us? Given what is now widely known about the circumstances of Obama’s birth and parentage, one might conclude that high-ranking Democratic officials… most notably convention chairman Nancy Pelosi… were fully aware when they nominated him that Barack Obama was ineligible to serve as President of the United States, by reason of the fact that he is not a “natural born” citizen as required by the U.S. Constitution.
The bogus presidency of Barack Obama is clearly one of the most monstrous crimes ever committed against the people of the United States. But what are the chances that the full extent of the crime will ever be fully disclosed? So long as liberals and Democrats are willing to protect him at all costs, and so long as conservatives and Republicans are afraid to challenge him because of the color of his skin, Obama will likely go unpunished. However, if we could ever get the former speaker secured to a straight-backed chair, leaning backward over a large basin with a towel or wash cloth over her face and a pail of water at hand, we would almost certainly learn the truth.
Just as Khalid Sheikh Muhammad told the CIA everything they wanted to know about the planning and execution of the 9/11 attacks, Ms. Pelosi would be just as certain to spill the beans on exactly when the leadership of the Democratic Party first became aware that George Soros and Barack Obama were intent upon committing the greatest political crime of all time… the brazen theft of the American presidency.”

CASA de Maryland: The Illegals’ ACORN
James Simpson — September 20, 2011 Snips
The driving force behind the DREAM Act was CASA de Maryland, an increasingly vocal advocate for Maryland’s illegals. The group’s aggressive tactics and questionable dealings helped provoke the outrage that drove the DREAM Act petition to overwhelming victory. CASA’s defeat, however, did not deter them. They recruited longtime Democratic National Committee chief lawyer, Joseph E. Sandler, an attorney who specializes in harassing conservatives with frivolous litigation threats. They have now sued Maryland’s Election Commission to overturn the petition.5 [Sandler was one of Obama’s first lawyers!]
CASA receives about 40 percent of its funding from Maryland state and local governments—almost $5 million of taxpayer dollars in 2010—and spends most of it lobbying for illegal immigrant perks and exceptions. Their recent lawsuit is a blatant attempt to derail the democratic process itself. So it is a fair question to ask: what is CASA de Maryland?
CASA de Maryland was founded by a young activist named Bette “Rainbow” Hoover. CASA’s name is a metaphor for the organization’s duplicitous nature. CASA means “house” or “home” in Spanish; however, “CASA” is actually an acronym for Central American Solidarity Association. It is more in keeping with the designs and philosophies of other Central American solidarity organizations formed at the time, like the communist-founded 6 Committee in Solidarity with the People of El Salvador (CISPES).
It was incorporated on February 28, 1985, but Hoover said it actually began operating in 1983,7 based out of Takoma Park Presbyterian Church in Takoma Park, Maryland. From its modest beginnings, CASA has grown into a multi-million dollar operation, with influence reaching to the Obama White House. It is headquartered in the newly-renovated (with $10 million in taxpayer dollars), 18,000 square foot, 28-room, Langley Park Mansion, right up the street from Takoma Park. It boasts a community center and five day-labor centers spread over a 35-mile radius from the Washington, D.C. metro area to Baltimore.
Communism is Dying? 80 Million Chinese Reds Beg to Differ
Trevor Loudon on September 21, 2011
Many Western commentators would tell you that communism is dying in China and will eventually be replaced by capitalism and maybe even a western style “democracy.” Others will tell you that we don’t have to fear China, because the country has huge internal problems and may eventually fall apart.
Both views are, in my opinion, grossly naive and wishful thinking.
China in my view is following classic Marxist-Leninist principles.
China tried to go directly from feudalism to socialism with disastrous results. Now the Communist Party has returned to Classic Marxism, moving from feudalism, to very tightly controlled “capitalism,” which will lead according to Marx,onto socialism, then communism.
The good Leninists of the Communist Party of China well understand the dangers that “capitalism” could pose to their control, so they are forever building and broadening the reach of the Party into every facet of Chinese life. The party is the glue that holds China together and it is getting stronger every day.
“ALINSKY, OBAMA: LIES, LIES, LIES”
By Ellis Washington
The Report From Washington
September 16, 2011
“The Alinksy radical has a single principle – to take power from the Haves and give it to the Have-nots. What this amounts to in practice is a political nihilism – a destructive assault on the established order in the name of the “people” (who, in the fashion common to dictators, are designated as such by the revolutionary elite).
~ David Horowitz
“Truth was not only relative to Alinsky, it was irrelevant. Alinsky wrote, “An organizer working in and for an open society is in an ideological dilemma to begin with, he does not have a fixed truth – truth to him is relative and changing; everything to him is relative and changing. … To the extent that he is free from the shackles of dogma, he can respond to the realities of the widely different situations.”
It was Nietzsche who coined the ideas “God is dead” and “will to power.” Once you remove God from politics, law, culture and society, all you need is a charismatic radical leader to fill the void, to impose his will on the people, to be so fanatically devoted to an overarching, controlling idea – the STATE is god and has all the answers to society’s problems (as in the case of every Democrat from Woodrow Wilson to Obama) – that all other issues pale in comparison.
That’s what Obama’s current $650 billion job’s bill together with his multi-state promotional tour is all about – it’s all lies, lies and damn lies concocted to deceive those whom Lenin called ‘useful idiots.’”

If one could get a foreign birth certificate in Texas they get a $20,000 stipend to college and free health care? Why would anyone applying to college want to document their birth?
Sounds like a new jobs program…. Forging birth certificates!
Has the world gone crazy or is it just me?
I’m confused by your comment AOne. Is this something Perry said during the debate? I didn’t see it. Are you saying that in Texas a person who’s foreign born can get a birth certificate and then college and health care?
No. They need to just get a forged foreign one and it’s worth thousands of $$$$ to them. Perry is supporting $ 20,000 in subsidies to illegals for college….. Texans pay full price and out of staters pay much much more….
Health care also free
It’s great to be an illegal!
A real foreign bc may also work but then they might not be
” undocumented” or “illegal” which seems to be one of the qualifications.
I guess they need photos of their parents dragging them into the US ( through no fault of their own)
Yes…. It is what he said last night.
Are you kidding me? That’s insane. So if you’re foreign-born, you get more of a break than US/Texas citizens? Is he out of his mind? This reminds me of that article I found where he talked about the “region”–one region, the “border region”–that includes parts of Texas AND Mexico, as if he is somehow governor of or represents both, including the Mexicans on the Mexican side. It had to do with Texas providing health care to the Mexicans on the other side of the border with access to online or televised health care. Is he that much of a panderer to Hispanics OR is he really in on the NWO (North American Union) crap? (Excuse my French. This makes me furious. Fast!)
On GB this morning a caller said her son ( who works for the university) found the figures and found that about 5% of the tuition ( from those that have to pay their tuition) goes to the fund to pay for the illegals……
The response was ” we are not against letting them into colleges… We are just against PAYING for them and putting them in front of our children”
Texas subsidizes approximately $25,000 per year to illegals to pay for their college education. Normal citizens have to go the normal LOAN route. Romney said that is $100,000 (a Discount is how it was phrased) per illegal that Texas is paying to educate illegals and it was passed in our legislature. I don’t know when that passed..but it will now become a problem here I do believe. I sure didn’t hear about it. I knew we were having to teach all courses in our district in two languages…and I was infuriated over that.
You probably wouldn’t have learned about it because it was probably buried in the bill and unreported in the complicit media. It is infuriating. But somehow, they keep reminding us, Perry is the candidate of the Tea Party. How does that work? The Tea Party is against big government and waste and taxing people for things government has no business being involved in, in the first place. Also for OBEYING the LAW and the Constitution. So how do any Tea Party supporters of Perry square that with his actions with regard to illegals? It should infuriate EVERY parent in Texas. I can imagine how people must feel when they see their kids working part-time jops at McDonald’s or going to community college first, because they can’t afford the state colleges, while ILLEGALS get handouts.
Will see if the Tea Party responds after last nights informative debate. I was livid. I knew he supported the illegals in education as the teachers in my neighborhood told me about the new two language classes that we have to subsidize. Can you imagine the cost if all classes are presented in both English and Spanish? We are doubling the cost of education to make sure that illegals are educated.
I am sure many are employed in the hotel industry here as well as in the valley (food production). They are definitely working for highway construction companies. I saw that when they put our new road in…Only one on the crew spoke English…an indicator. Most of the lawn crews are illegals too. But many could have special work visas to be here.
One manufacturer I worked for, the entire crew were illegals, but they all presented social security cards. Not one could speak English. I was told on the QT when I asked why no one spoke English.
Mind you I am not against legal immigrants, but I sure am against people coming to our country illegally and working by scamming the system. I am sorry their country is in such bad shape that they need to come here illegally to make a living. That has to be a tough decision. Think about the billions of dollars that are sent back to Mexico to their relatives. That is money that is not circulating in our economy.
In Texas, forged documents for illegals are a cottage industry.
Perry: ‘I Don’t Think You Have a Heart’ If You Oppose In-State Tuition for Children of Illegal Immigrants

Kidding me ? The guilt trip thing ? Amazing.
Perry: ‘I Don’t Think You Have a Heart’ If You Oppose In-State Tuition for Children of Illegal Immigrants
September 22, 2011
That Perry name….Our legal kids need nothing. Let’s give theirs all away !
Yay ! Isn’t he nice ? Is this his money he is giving away ?
I did not think so…..
I guess I don’t have a heart. I think he doesn’t have a brain. What’s worse?
There are US CITIZENS and TEXAS CITIZENS who are suffering in the Obamaconomy and he expects people to have “heart” so they will send other people’s kids (illegals at that) to college? He’s as tone deaf as Barry.
Couldn’t play the race card so he played the tin man card?
Rick Perry lied straight up….
He was actually “lobbyed” by the girl with cervical cancer AFTER he had already signed the executive order mandating 12 yr olds to take the HPV vaccine.
If you ask Texans if they like Perry they say no. I also read that Tx. has a huge deficit too.
New Obama czar moonlighting for whom?
Organization accuses U.S. of ‘structural racism,’ promotes government intervention
September 22, 2011 10 pm Eastern Snips
The newly appointed chief of President Obama’s Social Innovation and Civic Participation Council doubles as the director of a social justice group funded by George Soros.
The organization, the Aspen Institute, works closely with Soros and even was reportedly used by the billionaire in a failed attempt to engineer the defeat of President Bush in the 2004 elections.
Jonathan Greenblatt was appointed the new head of Obama’s Social Innovation Unit earlier this month.
Greenblatt is the founder of a civic service company that works in partnership with Google and the Huffington Post. He has several ties to Google. Greenblatt also serves as director of the Impact Economy Initiative at the Aspen Institute. Aspen’s mission statement says the nonprofit seeks “to foster values-based leadership, encourag[e] individuals to reflect on the ideals and ideas that define a good society, and … provide a neutral and balanced venue for discussing and acting on critical issues.”
A member of Aspen’s board is Henry Louis Gates Jr.,[BEER SUMMIT] a Harvard professor who sparked a national race controversy in July 2009 when Obama criticized local Cambridge police who had arrested Gates after a burglary had been reported on his property.
The article doesn’t tell what the responsibilities are for this new Czar! What the heck is Social Innovation in the progressive Marxists vocabulary?
That’s exactly what I was thinking, Bridgette. Social Innovation. Making a new society? How? Eradicating anybody who doesn’t fit? Sounds vaguely Hitleresque.
If this were the Bush administration, could you hear the howling? Remember the screams (that continue even today) about, gasp, Halliburton?
“provide a neutral and balanced venue?” That sounds like control of the Internet by suppressing whatever they think is not “neutral” or “balanced.” They think FOX is biased because it’s just about the ONLY mainstream media outlet that includes BOTH sides. Unlike the NY Times, for example, which gives us only “moderates” (see David Brooks, self-proclaimed Obama “sap”). GOOGLE?
When I saw “structural racism”, I thought they were talking about Eric Holder’s “Justice” Dept.
Oh, I missed the “civic participation” part. This is part of their program to put a computer in every home and Wi-Fi access for all so they can community organize all their constituents, which in Obama’s case, as with thugs like Hugo Chavez, is that subset of the population that pays NO TAXES and lives OFF the rest of the society. Unfortunately, so far, government benefits don’t include Wi-Fi access and laptops, so that MUST BE remedied. Not to help the people, but to help progressives ORGANIZE their people for flash mobs, strikes, sit-ins, Days of Rage, etc. Net neutrality is in this, too. He never stops. He told us so, and he’s proving himself right.
It’s just like how Barry is now forcing all the taxpayers to FUND his campaign, which he pretends is just the POTUS, going around telling the “folks” about all his wonderful deeds. He wants everybody in the country to fund the very apparatus that will entrench Barry and his peeps in POWER and RULE forevermore.
“Sounds vaguely Hitleresque”. ????
Sounds absolutely Hitleresque!!!
Appointing a Jewish Czar in that capacity is ever so brilliant …. Who could question that ??
Does he really think we are all that stupid? Does he think he will get the American vote back and the Jewish vote back?
Yes, he does think we’re that stupid. But he’s in for a rude awakening.
The newest meme in favor of Barry is that the American people are SO STUPID that they don’t recognize his brilliance. Sounds like something straight out of his feverish, narcissistic brain.
I didn’t even notice the guy’s name. Greenblatt. Yup. Sounds Jewish to me. Must be one of those “secular” Jews.
“Social Innovation UNIT”. I still can’t get over that one. Talk about Newspeak.

What’s Attack Waaaaaaatch up to these days?
September 23, 2011
Apparently a whole lot of nothing, reports NRO’s Andrew McCarthy:
The creators and managers of the Obama campaign web site “ATTACK WATCH” have not Tweeted since September 14, and the last “Attack File” was posted September 12. …
By ceasing to do any work, the “Attack Watch” team has now joined the ranks of 14 million other Americans under Obama’s economic policies.
B-b-b-but we were all having so much fun!
One of the funniest moments. Another was one by Newt.
Johnson: My Neighbor’s Dogs ‘Created More Shovel-Ready Jobs Than This Current Administration’
September 22, 2011
Bringing some much needed levity to Thursday night’s Republican presidential debate, former New Mexico governor and GOP candidate Gary Johnson enjoyed his “moment” of the evening when stating that “My next-door neighbor’s two dogs have created more shovel-ready jobs than this current administration.”
Thanks. That’s really funny. I heard that this morning on radio but didn’t know who said it! I wondered who Johnson is, when I saw the list of participants. When did he start running?
Actually, Johnson’s quip was Rush’s parting salvo yesterday afternoon. I heard Rush say it on air and was surprised Johnson didn’t give attribution to Rush.
And Perry is toast. Pass the jam.
Anyway….Obama should give a speech beneath Bush’s “Mission Accomplished” banner. If he were to resign tomorrow he accomplished his mission of wreaking great havoc this great nation…hopefully not destroying it irrevocably!
TY, Rosemary. He should have given Rushbo credit. It does sound like Rush.

Obama Administration Set to Ban Asthma Inhalers Over Environmental Concerns
Sep 23, 2011
Remember how Obama recently waived new ozone regulations at the EPA because they were too costly? Well, it seems that the Obama administration would rather make people with Asthma cough up money than let them make a surely inconsequential contribution to depleting the ozone layer:
Asthma patients who rely on over-the-counter inhalers will need to switch to prescription-only alternatives as part of the federal government’s latest attempt to protect the Earth’s atmosphere. The Food and Drug Administration said Thursday patients who use the epinephrine inhalers to treat mild asthma will need to switch by Dec. 31 to other types that do not contain chlorofluorocarbons, an aerosol substance once found in a variety of spray products.
The action is part of an agreement signed by the U.S. and other nations to stop using substances that deplete the ozone layer, a region in the atmosphere that helps block harmful ultraviolet rays from the Sun.
But the switch to a greener inhaler will cost consumers more! From $20 now to $60!
Solyndra, Solyndra, Solyndra
Ann Barnhardt – September 14,
Dump half a billion into a fake Potempkin Plant, let the executives skim about 10% of that off the top, of which a certain percentage goes right back to the Obama regime through campaign contributions, bring in other cronies as “investors” and then subordinate the government loan BEHIND the crony “investors”, and finally BK the whole thing in 12 months and sell off the equipment and assets to even more cronies for 10 cents on the dollar.
It was fraud from the beginning!
Solyndra employee: “Everyone knew the plant wouldn’t work”
The Right Scoop on Sep 14, 2011
This is a must listen. While we were focused on the debate last Wednesday night, Mark Levin got a call from someone who worked at the Solyndra plant, who gave some revealing details about this Solyndra scandal. This is one of the more interesting things the caller said:
While we were out there, while we were building it – cause it is a half a billion dollar plant – everyone already knew that China had developed a more inexpensive way to manufacture these solar panels. Everyone knew that the plant wouldn’t work. But they still did it. They still built it. She then emphasized that she isn’t even that high on the totem pole and she knew this stuff. So there’s no doubt in her mind that Obama and the White House knew that it wasn’t feasible.
Levin replayed the call tonight. Here is the full call: Go to the URL.
Federal Govt Pays Hundreds of Millions to Dead Employees
23 Sep 2011 Snips
The federal government continues to send retirement benefits to dead employees to the tune of more than $100 million a year. The Office of Personnel Management paid out more than $600 million in benefits to deceased people during the past five years, according to an inspector general’s report that The Washington Post cites.
In 2010 the government sent out a total of $125 billion in improper payments, a $15 billion jump attributed to increases in unemployment and Medicaid payments. The government recovered about $687 million of the improper payments, the Post reported.
Herman Cain won the straw poll in Florida!
Herman Cain DOMINATES Florida Straw GOP Poll
Obama’s HUD execs deliver $730,000 to ACORN spinoffs
Another $15 billion proposed for Alinsky-inspired groups
September 24, 2011
The Obama administration has given ACORN spinoffs $729,849 so far this year and may hand out billions more in federal cash to these and other Saul Alinsky-inspired organizations, according to award-winning investigative journalist Matthew Vadum.
“These federal grant recipients are the same left-wing groups that will be going all-out next year in an effort to re-elect Obama,” Vadum told WND. “They will be using American taxpayers’ money to keep Obama in the White House.” Contrary to mainstream media reports, ACORN is very much alive, though it has changed its form. The shell corporation that ran the ACORN network filed Chapter7 bankruptcy almost a year ago, but ACORN continues to operate.
Obama’s new economic stimulus package, the so-called “jobs bill,” contains as much as $15 billion for left-wing groups such as ACORN, Obama’s former employer. Obama has been using his presidential bully pulpit to demand that Republicans in Congress “pass this bill,” even though there is no bill yet. Despite all the rhetoric, the proposed “American Jobs Act of 2011” apparently hasn’t even been introduced in Congress.
But the plans call for a $15-billion stash to be earmarked for “Project Rebuild,” which would subsidize states, local governments and what Obama’s proposal calls “qualified nonprofit organizations” to redevelop abandoned and foreclosed properties. ACORN has been in the real estate development business for decades and would apparently qualify for funding.
At Obama’s Department of Housing and Urban Development, HUD Secretary and longtime ACORN ally Shaun Donovan has been showering ACORN with federal tax dollars. The grants have gone to Affordable Housing Centers of America Inc. (AHCOA), which is the new name for ACORN Housing. Rampaging ACORN activists routinely break in and illegally occupy property already owned by others – and this activity is underwritten by taxpayers, according to Vadum’s book.
HUD’s grants to AHCOA this year are being handed out despite a congressional ban on funding ACORN. Although longtime ACORN loyalists remain in charge of AHCOA, HUD claims that AHCOA has no ties to the ACORN network. HUD’s most recent grant is dated Sept. 2. HUD gave $350,030 to AHCOA in Philadelphia for “housing counseling.” The month before HUD gave $300,000 to AHCOA’s head office in Chicago, also for housing counseling.
Don’t forget this one.. the Obama administration giving $17 million to a University that Michelle Obama’s brother works at to save her brothers job. How you feelin’ about that hope and change thingy now America?
Obama = ZERO.
But after the Florida Straw Poll results, perhaps it should be:
And here’s the “Use a Sharpie on your existing bumper sticker” version:
Clever! 🙂 What a team they’d make. Invincible. IMHO.
I don’t know but somehow, for some reason, this seems somehow inappropriate for a president. But maybe that’s just me.
Obama tells the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation that blacks need to stop whining and put on their “marching shoes.”
“He acknowledged blacks have suffered mightily because of the recession, and are frustrated that the downturn is taking so long to reverse. “So many people are still hurting. So many people are barely hanging on,” he said, then added: “And so many people in this city are fighting us every step of the way.” [Who’s this “us”? Only blacks? Sounds like.]
But Obama said blacks know all too well from the civil rights struggle that the fight for what is right is never easy. [Redistribution of other people’s wealth is “right.”]
“Take off your bedroom slippers. Put on your marching shoes,” he said, his voice rising as applause and cheers mounted. “Shake it off. Stop complainin’. Stop grumblin’. Stop cryin’. We are going to press on. We have work to do.”
Topping the to-do list, he said, is getting Congress to the pass jobs bill he sent to Capitol Hill two weeks ago.
Obama said the package of payroll tax cuts, business tax breaks and infrastructure spending will benefit 100,000 black-owned businesses and 20 million African-American workers.” [ Is he president of ALL the people or only “his” people? Will this jops plan benefit white-owned businesses or employ millions of white workers? Does he care about whites? Or anybody who’s not black? ]
So Perry plays the Tin Man card and Obama plays the race card. I hope that whoever gets the Republican nomination has the trump card.
In 2008, Obama “presented himself as a politician who could transcend traditional partisan divisions, and many white centrists were drawn to the coalition that helped elect the country’s first black president … [In 2012] Operation Vote will function as a large, centralized department in the Chicago campaign office for reaching ethnic, religious and other voter groups. It will coordinate recruitment of an ethnic volunteer base and push out targeted messages online and through the media to groups such as blacks, Hispanics, Jews, women, seniors, young people, gays and Asian Americans.
The campaign this month hired a longtime Jewish political activist as a point person for that community, the first of many such hirings to come this fall as staffers are brought on from each of the target groups.”
So it’s VERY CLEAR that Obama no longer considers himself the president of ALL the people. He’s going to target only select MINORITIES to get out and vote. He doesn’t care, apparently, to see whites get out and vote. In fact, would prefer that they not vote. Perhaps they should be intimidated at the polls, disenfranchised, by the likes of the New Black Panthers who might take his divisive rhetoric to heart and put on their marching shoes.
I love this! It just say’s it all. This is Ulsterman’s new site.
Racist Tea Party Makes Herman Cain A Winner In Florida
How dare that Tea Party – a rag-tag collection of racist political misfits if ever there was one! Why just look at them! Their talk of smaller government, personal freedom, and self-determination! How dare they! How terribly un-American of all of them! And of course…how very racist of them too!
Racist! Racist! Racist! Look at all of those white faces atop the GOP candidates for president stage, every last one of them a symbol of the all-white Republican…say what? What was that? Herman Cain is a Black man? Eh? One of his parents isn’t even White? Say again?
Great catch Kathy.
There’s a petition to repeal Obamacare on the White House website! It must reach 5000 signers (provided Barry’s peeps don’t keep moving the goalpost) tp remain there. As of the time GP posted it, there were only 54 signers. It needs to reach the goal by Oct. 22.
