Professor Damon’s Hollywood Intelligence – September 10, 2008

Posted on September 10, 2008. Filed under: Uncategorized |

If the YouTube video is missing, you can view it on YouTube’s web site at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C6urw_PWHYk&NR=1

Matt Damon says he doesn’t know anything about Sarah Palin. Why doesn’t he do an online search? I didn’t know anything about Barack Obama and neither did Damon. I did an online search and discovered all by myself that he associated wtih radicals, Marxists, terrorists, racists, black liberation theology extremists, Black Muslims who were anti-American and anti-semitic, went to the home of two American terrorists to start his Chicago political career, and used cocaine and marijauna. I learned that he changed his positions on issues when it served his political self interests. He lied and misled. His views were “blame America not the tyrants” and tax and spend more and more. He believed in socialism, redistribution of wealth.

Matt is more concerned with whether or not Gov. Palin believes there were dinosaurs 4,000 years ago. He calls her a mayor of a very small town, deceptively ignoring the fact that she is the governor of Alaska. It’s scary to me that there are people who think like this.

Two-Faced Double Standard – September 10, 2008

Posted on September 10, 2008. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Sen. Biden confirmed Gov. Sarah Palin’s qualifications and experience to be the Vice President. So when will young Sen. Obama step up to the plate and admit it? Obama decried any discussion of his wife’s public political statements that were controversial, to say the least. Yet, he cares not about the vicious smear tactics used against Gov. Sarah Palin. Two faced double standard. “Do as I say, not as I do.”

The magic is gone. The star has fallen. The glow has dimmed. Obama is just another politician who wants to get elected. Nothing special here.

There is no more time to do nothing.

Obama’s Sex for Kindergarten – September 10, 2008

Posted on September 10, 2008. Filed under: Uncategorized |

“Planned Parenthood Federation of America is the largest provider of abortions in the United States and receives about one-third of its $1 billion annual budget from federal grants and contracts.” http://southcountytruth.blogspot.com/2008/03/judge-to-hear-criminal-charges-a…

Planned Parenthood doesn’t share the morals of parents raising children. They are obsessed with the sex industry. The more kids engage in sex, the more Planned Parenthood makes.

Obama is not the friend of parents or children. He isn’t thinking about the ramifications of taking away a child’s innocence at an early age. He doesn’t seem to be exhibiting true Christian values on this issue.

Who do you want teaching your young child about sex and homosexuality? A teacher, not of your choosing or vetting or yourself? At what age do you want to teach your child about these subjects? What values will the school teacher embed in your child? Yours or hers/his? Will there be laws governing the teacher’s approach to teaching sex and homosexuality to your child? Will the laws conflict with your values?

Obama did not originally support charter schools or school choice for your children. He wants them in government schools where Democrats can indoctrinate them.

Obama gives thanks to Planned Parenthood saying “thank you….and for men who have sense enough to realize you’re helping them all across this country.” laughter by the audience

Yes, it’s all a big laugh to this crowd. There’s much talk about women, men, rights and even Judge Ruth Bader Ginsberg’s life work being in jeopardy – but NO mention of the millions of living babies being snuffed by this crowd. No empathy for the babies.

There is no more time to do nothing.

Obama a Felon? – September 09, 2008

Posted on September 9, 2008. Filed under: Uncategorized |

The rabid dogs on the left of the political spectrum are smearing a woman they view as a threat to their coronation of Barack Hussein Obama. They have had the “AUDACITY” to attack her religion and call her former pastor an extremist. Of course the whole country will remember the extremist former pastor of Obama, the Irreverent Jeremiah Wright who used the most foul language from the pulpit in the presence of ladies and young people, possibly even children and maybe even Obama’s children, for whom he should have been setting a good example. He cursed our great benevolent country in a hateful diatribe of lies, distortions and deliberate misinformation. The man seems unaware of recorded history that the rest of us have known all of our lives. Extremist former pastor? The Leftists might not want to open that subject again because the Right will be happy to compare the two pastors.

The Left has made another unwise charge about Gov. Palin’s husband’s twenty-two year-old DUI, as if that made any difference at all in the Governor’s ability to serve as Vice President. Since they think this is worth remembering, the Right can bring up young Barry Soetoro Obama’s confession of commiting felonies – using marijuana and cocaine. He didn’t say he tried it once, didn’t inhale and never used it again. He used it repeatedly.

A person is not a felon because they were found guilty in court. They are a felon because they committed a felony, like use of cocaine. Obama has admitted again and again that he used cocaine. He has admitted committing a felony. He is a felon. In many states, felons loose their right to vote FOREVER. Obama should loose his right to vote, as a felon, like all other felons must. But he gets to retain his right to vote AND BE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES! I think it most unwise of the Left to bring up Mr. Palin’s DUI from twenty-two years ago. This is a discussion the Right is ready to have.

Barack Obama had this to say about himself: “Junkie. Pothead. That’s where I’d been headed: the final, fatal role of the young would-be black man. . . . I got high [to] push questions of who I was out of my mind.”

In the book, Obama acknowledges that he used cocaine as a high school student but rejected heroin. “Pot had helped, and booze; maybe a little blow when you could afford it. Not smack, though,” he says. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/01/02/AR20070102013…

Dare to compare Obama’s “youthful mistakes” to the DUI of the youthful Mr. Palin’s mistake.

“I think that, at this stage, my life is an open book, literally and figuratively,” he said. “Voters can make a judgment as to whether dumb things (FELONY) that I did when I was a teenager are relevant to the work that I’ve done since that time.”

Should Obama loose his right to vote like other felons? Should he loose his right to be president?

There is no more time to do nothing.

What a Drag! – September 08, 2008

Posted on September 8, 2008. Filed under: Uncategorized |

MSNBC political faces, Keith Olbermann, and Chris Matthews, are finally being removed as anchors of live political events, according to the Washington Post.com. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/09/08/AR20080908000…

It has finally occurred to someone at the network, that these guys may not be neutral, balanced and definitely not fair, in their coverage of the political candidates. (You think?) Either somone’s been asleep at the wheel at MS/NBC or someone hoped they’d get by with their extreme partisanship in covering political news. Tom Brokaw, a seasoned veteran in the news industry, may have been the voice of reason, finally pursuading the powers that be to move Olbermann and Matthews to a different venue. It’s a shame they waited until MS/NBC has no credibility in the news category. Their ratings are the lowest of all the networks.

Why should viewers seriously consider anything said by the likes of Matthews, who said,

“I have to tell you, you know, it’s part of reporting this case, this election, the feeling most people get when they hear Barack Obama’s speech. My, I felt this thrill going up my leg. I mean, I don’t have that too often.”

And has cried over an Obama speech and compared him to Jesus!

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/02/13/chris-matthews-i-felt-t_n_86449.html

John McCain wasn’t my first choice, but on second thought, I’m ready for a “no nonsense” approach to the serious matters that affect my country and my life. We can only HOPE, as Obama puts it, that the Dreamer, of “Dreams of My Father”, loses and common sense prevails.

Obama’s Own Words on Community Organizing – September 05, 2008

Posted on September 5, 2008. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Obama wrote a chapter on community organizing for the book below:

After Alinsky: Community Organizing in Illinois
(c) 1990 Illinois Issues, University of Illinois at Springfield
ISBN: 0-9620873-3-5

Chapter 4 (pp. 35-40) of After Alinsky (Read part of chapter 4 at the link below.)

http://www.edwoj.com/Alinsky/AlinskyObamaChapter1990.htm

Please read in Obama’s own words, written in 1990, his understanding of the role of and need for a community organizer. Note that he was influenced by the writings of Saul Alinsky, was recruited to be a CO by a student of Alinsky, and this chapter was written for a book about Alinsky’s movement.

See if you get a hint of racism and if the purpose of a CO is really to create a protest movement among a group of people. Alinsky taught that churches were the best place to find members. This makes it crystal clear why Obama chose Jeremiah Wright’s church and completely debunks Obama’s lie that he had no clue about Wright’s hate speech. That speech is precisely why Obama joined Trinity United Church of Christ.

Look closely at the picture of Obama writing on the chalk board. He is teaching and the words “Power Analysis” can be seen as the topic title. Here is the accompanying caption.

Global Warming Scare Tactics – September 05, 2008

Posted on September 5, 2008. Filed under: Uncategorized |

From the BBC News Online: Sept. 5, 2008

Wilson row over green ‘alarmists’

Sammy Wilson

Sammy Wilson’s view on climate change has angered environmentalists

The Environment Minister Sammy Wilson has angered green campaigners by describing their view on climate change as a “hysterical psuedo-religion”.

In an article in the News Letter, Mr Wilson said he believed it occurred naturally and was not man-made.

“Resources should be used to adapt to the consequences of climate change, rather than King Canute-style vainly trying to stop it,” said the minister.

Peter Doran of the Green Party said it was a “deeply irresponsible message.”

Mr Wilson said he refused to “blindly accept” the need to make significant changes to the economy to stop climate change.

“The tactic used by the “green gang” is to label anyone who dares disagree with their view of climate change as some kind of nutcase who denies scientific fact,” he said.

The minister said he accepted climate change can occur, but does not believe the cause has been identified.

“Reasoned debate must replace the scaremongering of the green climate alarmists.”

John Woods of Friends of the Earth said Mr Wilson was “like a cigarette salesman denying that smoking causes cancer”.

“Ironically, if we listen to him Northern Ireland will suffer economically as we are left behind by smarter regions who are embracing the low carbon economy of the future.”

It is the latest clash between Mr Wilson and green groups since his appointment as environment minister in June.

Chicago Killings Double Deaths in Iraq – September 04, 2008

Posted on September 4, 2008. Filed under: Uncategorized |

The ONE is needed to work his miracles back in his hometown of Chicago. South Side, where Obama was a community organizer, is a deadly zone rivaling the worst places in Iraq and Afghanistan.

IRAQ SUCCESS NOT ON FRONT PAGES – September 03, 2008

Posted on September 3, 2008. Filed under: Uncategorized |

CON TROL OF ANBAR PROVINCE IN IRAQ HAS BEEN TURNED OVER TO IRAQI FORCES.

Once a very violent region and the most dangerous in Iraq, Anbar has been reclaimed by the Iraqi people who can now live in peace and safety there. This achievement warrants national acclaim in Iraq, which it has received, and in America, where it has not been in the headlines.

Perhaps it’s not convenient for the main stream media (MSM), totally in the tank for Obama – the ONE, to report the successes in Iraq at a time when Obama is raising his flag prematurely over the White House. Obama has been against the war, and once in the war, he has been against winning it. He was against staying the course until victory and against the surge to help ensure that we win.

With all of the statements Obama has made about the Iraq war easily retrievable on the internet, the last thing the MSM wants to do is put Iraq success in the headlines. They can not bring themselves to publish facts that prove Obama wrong, or highlight his err in judgment.

From the very beginning of the One’s campaign, MSM could have reported that the One believed terrorists were disillusioned poor people who couldn’t deal with poverty and had no education. Is this his set up for giving a ton of Americans’ hard-earned tax dollars to, ahem, dare I say it, Muslims around the world – those poor who have had no choice but to become terrorists, even though human history has always witnessed masses without education and without adequate means who DID NOT become terrorists?

America, over the centuries, has had its share of impoverished, uneducated populace who never considered terrorism as a means to an end. Most likely, Obama, the community organizer, came into contact with some of them.

A terrorist is developed over time by charismatic leaders, harboring an extreme leftist world view, coming into communities where they can find some discontent. They play on this discontent, convincing some that it is the fault of and the responsiblity of those on the right to meet their needs and make them satisfied. These leaders gather and build the tender, set the sparks, keep it smoldering and then light the fuse. Some of these leaders are college professors appealing to the idealistic young who haven’t yet lived long enough to see for themselves and who trust that professors “know what they’re talking about.” Trust is the key. Some students don’t realize that college professors may have an agenda outside of pure education, and may in fact, be interested in over-throwing current social structures, even current governments.

So terrorists aren’t reacting to poverty in the only way they know how. They are created and cultivated, like cultures in a petri dish. Each one can point back to a leader they listened to and believed. Some are poor, while others are not. It would seem to be good common sense to shun these leftist charismatic leaders and prevent the rise of terrorists among us. But the MSM seems to have fallen victim to their college professors and every leftist rising star that is eloquent and pursuasive.

Obama’s speech published in the Sept. 19, 2001 edition of the Hyde Park Herald, and republished in the recent New Yorker article, “Making It”.

“Even as I hope for some measure of peace and comfort to the bereaved families, I must also hope that we as a nation draw some measure of wisdom from this tragedy. Certain immediate lessons are clear, and we must act upon those lessons decisively. We need to step up security at our airports. We must reexamine the effectiveness of our intelligence networks. And we must be resolute in identifying the perpetrators of these heinous acts and dismantling their organizations of destruction.

We must also engage, however, in the more difficult task of understanding the sources of such madness. The essence of this tragedy, it seems to me, derives from a fundamental absence of empathy on the part of the attackers: an inability to imagine, or connect with, the humanity and suffering of others. Such a failure of empathy, such numbness to the pain of a child or the desperation of a parent, is not innate; nor, history tells us, is it unique to a particular culture, religion, or ethnicity. It may find expression in a particular brand of violence, and may be channeled by particular demagogues or fanatics. Most often, though, it grows out of a climate of poverty and ignorance, helplessness and despair.

We will have to make sure, despite our rage, that any U.S. military action takes into account the lives of innocent civilians abroad. We will have to be unwavering in opposing bigotry or discrimination directed against neighbors and friends of Middle Eastern descent. Finally, we will have to devote far more attention to the monumental task of raising the hopes and prospects of embittered children across the globe���children not just in the Middle East, but also in Africa, Asia, Latin America, Eastern Europe and within our own shores.(Except those in Iraq living under the brutality of Saddam, Cusai and Udai Hussein.)

THERE IS NO MORE TIME TO DO NOTHING.
