September 11, 2009!

Posted on August 26, 2009. Filed under: Islam, Obama, Political | Tags: , , , , |

While releasing terrorists and investigating the CIA for their treatment of terrorists, Obama is also trying to erase our “harsh” memories of September 11, 2001.  This administration has signed into law,  a new view of September 11th. It is now a National Day of Service.  Their motivation is to “take September 11th away from Republicans,” because in Obama’s view, it’s a Republican day. The plan is to push activism, the environment, ethanol, service in the sense of ACORN activity and forgetting all about those “detainees” and the devastation they inflicted upon New York, Pennsylvania and the whole country.  Who’s behind this?

“The administration’s plans were outlined in an Aug. 11 White House-sponsored teleconference call run by Obama ally Lennox Yearwood, president of the Hip Hop Caucus, and Liv Havstad, the group’s senior vice president of strategic partnerships and programs.  Yearwood, who uses the honorific “Reverend” before his name, has been in the news in recent years, usually for getting arrested.   After Democrats took back Congress, the rowdy activist was handcuffed outside a congressional hearing in September 2007 when Gen. David Petraeus was to testify.  Yearwood told the “Democracy Now” radio program that he wanted to attend the hearing to hear Petraeus give his report. “I knew that when officers lie, soldiers die,” he said. ”

A coalition including the unsavory left-wing pressure group Color of Change and about 60 far-left, environmentalist, labor, and corporate shakedown groups participated in the call. Groups on the call included: ACORN, AFL-CIO, Apollo Alliance, Community Action Partnership, Deep South Center for Environmental Justice, 80 Million Strong for Young American Jobs, Friends of the Earth, Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies,, National Black Police Association, National Coalition on Black Civic Participation, National Council of Negro Women, National Wildlife Federation, RainbowPUSH Coalition, Urban League, and Young Democrats of America.

Color of Change is the extremist racial grievance group that isn’t happy that TV’s Glenn Beck did several news packages on Van Jones, the self-described “communist” and “rowdy black nationalist” who became the president’s green jobs czar after jumping on the environmentalist bandwagon.   The White House may be behind a push to destroy Beck by convincing advertisers to stop buying time on his show. Jones was also on the board of the Apollo Alliance, a hard-left environmentalist group that is now running large chunks of the Obama administration. The group has acknowledged that it dictated parts of the February stimulus bill to Congress.

With the help of the Obama administration, the coalition is launching a public relations campaign under the radar of the mainstream media — which remains almost uniformly terrified of criticizing the nation’s first black president — to try to change 9/11 from a day of reflection and remembrance to a day of activism, food banks, and community gardens. “

Please read the entire article for more disturbing details.  

Did you hear about this on television?  Was there any debate about this?  Did anyone ask “We the People” if we wanted to change it’s meaning? 

Start planning your own observance of September 11 and boycott everything Obama and his Communist organizations do.  Boycott the television stations and networks that cover the Obamanation of September 11th.  Don’t let the true memory of that terrible day be painted over with Obama’s agenda. 

This day belongs to all of us.  We will continue to call them terrorists, not detainees, and continue to observe September 11th as the day that radical Islamic terrorists killed over 3,000 people on American soil. We will not call them freedom fighters or detainees.  We will not refer to the war on terror as an “overseas contingency plan”.  Of course, it now looks as if that accurately sums up Obama’s orchestration of the war on terror.

Put flags on your houses, your cars and everything that you can place a flag on.  Wear flag pins on red, white and blue clothing.  Put black ribbons on your yard trees and front doors.  Hang them from your porch lights.  Set up candles and crosses in your yards, offices and churches.  Hold church services in remembrance.  Hold prayer services for the families and pray for America. Refuse to be led by Obama down a path of neutralizing September 11th and turning it into a Democrat’s dream of left-wing activism, environmentalism and enrolling citizens in Obama’s civil army.  No one asked you if you wanted to “fundamentally change” the way we observe September 11th.

Don’t let them get away with it.

Obama Promised to Fundamentally Change America

fun·da·men·tal :
Of or relating to the foundation or base; elementary: the fundamental laws of the universe. Forming or serving as an essential component of a system or structure; central:
Five days away from fundamentally changing the United States of America! Look at all those happy people behind Obama as he tells them that he is going to change the very foundation of America, the bastion of freedom in the world, the country that stands up to bullies and dictators around the world, the center of economic growth, the most generous and charitable nation in the world, a place where everyone’s dreams can come true, a mix of every nationality and religion, yet not plagued with hatred and terrorism. What are they smiling about? Why do they want to change the basic foundation of America?

What is it that those smiling people are happy to change? Is it the Constitution? The Bill of Rights? Freedom? Individual liberty? Innocent until proven guilty in a court of law by a jury of their peers? Amendments protecting citizens from “big brother”? Amendments prohibiting unreasonable search and seizure of citizens and their homes? Free elections? Self-government? Debate of the issues open to the public and broadcast on C-Span?

A two-term President rather than a life-time dictator or royal monarch? Freedom of speech? Everyone taking care of themselves and their families without government interference? The right to own property, homes and one’s own wealth? The right to travel the world? The right to worship our God as we see fit?

July 4th celebrations of the birth of our nation, our founding fathers, patriotic parades? Religious services on Sunday or Saturday, depending on your faith? Freedom to put your children in private, religious or public school or home-educate them? The right to spend your money any way you want, to invest it or save it? The right to drive whatever you want? The right to privacy?

Someone tell us which fundamental component of our country’s foundation are they happy to change? Which basic element in the foundation of our country do they want Obama to change? I wonder if they will still be happy after the fundamental changes are made. I know I won’t. I love the basic foundation of this country. Someone once said,

“No man thinks more highly than I do of the patriotism, as well as abilities, of the very worthy gentlemen who have just addressed the House. But different men often see the same subject in different lights; and, therefore, I hope that it will not be thought disrespectful to those gentlemen, if, entertaining as I do opinions of a character very opposite to theirs, I shall speak forth my sentiments freely and without reserve.This is no time for ceremony. The question before the House is one of awful moment to this country. For my own part I consider it as nothing less than a question of freedom or slavery; and in proportion to the magnitude of the subject ought to be the freedom of the debate. It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty towards the majesty of heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.

Mr. President, it is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren, till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation?

For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth — to know the worst and to provide for it. I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided; and that is the lamp of experience. I know of no way of judging of the future but by the past. And judging by the past, I wish to know what there has been in the conduct of the British ministry for the last ten years, to justify those hopes with which gentlemen have been pleased to solace themselves and the House?

Is it that insidious smile with which our petition has been lately received? Trust it not, sir; it will prove a snare to your feet. Suffer not yourselves to be betrayed with a kiss. Ask yourselves how this gracious reception of our petition comports with these warlike preparations which cover our waters and darken our land. Are fleets and armies necessary to a work of love and reconciliation? Have we shown ourselves so unwilling to be reconciled that force must be called in to win back our love? Let us not deceive ourselves, sir. These are the implements of war and subjugation — the last arguments to which kings resort. I ask gentlemen, sir, what means this martial array, if its purpose be not to force us to submission? Can gentlemen assign any other possible motives for it? Has Great Britain any enemy, in this quarter of the world, to call for all this accumulation of navies and armies?

No, sir, she has none. They are meant for us; they can be meant for no other. They are sent over to bind and rivet upon us those chains which the British ministry have been so long forging. And what have we to oppose to them? Shall we try argument? Sir, we have been trying that for the last ten years. Have we anything new to offer on the subject? Nothing.

We have held the subject up in every light of which it is capable; but it has been all in vain. Shall we resort to entreaty and humble supplication? What terms shall we find which have not been already exhausted? Let us not, I beseech you, sir, deceive ourselves longer.

Sir, we have done everything that could be done to avert the storm which is now coming on. We have petitioned; we have remonstrated; we have supplicated; we have prostrated ourselves before the throne, and have implored its interposition to arrest the tyrannical hands of the ministry and Parliament.

Our petitions have been slighted; our remonstrances have produced additional violence and insult; our supplications have been disregarded; and we have been spurned, with contempt, from the foot of the throne. In vain, after these things, may we indulge the fond hope of peace and reconciliation. There is no longer any room for hope.

If we wish to be free — if we mean to preserve inviolate those inestimable privileges for which we have been so long contending — if we mean not basely to abandon the noble struggle in which we have been so long engaged, and which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon until the glorious object of our contest shall be obtained, we must fight! I repeat it, sir, we must fight! An appeal to arms and to the God of Hosts is all that is left us!

They tell us, sir, that we are weak — unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a British guard shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance, by lying supinely on our backs, and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot?

Sir, we are not weak, if we make a proper use of the means which the God of nature hath placed in our power. Three millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us. Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations, and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us.

The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. Besides, sir, we have no election. If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston! The war is inevitable — and let it come! I repeat it, sir, let it come!

It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, “Peace! Peace!” — but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!”

Patrick Henry – March 23, 1775

Kelly for Congress

 Does this look like a RINO to you?

“I (state your name) do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to the regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.”    The Marine Corp enlistment creed.

Now what’s a Marine to do when he’s sworn to defend the Constitution AND obey the President who is currently trashing the Constitution?  What’s a Marine to do when he’s sworn to defend the Constitution against enemies foreign and domestic when the domestic is the President of the United States, the Democrat Congressmen/women and the Democrat Senators?

This is a dilemma for all enlisted service personnel.  It seems that while they are enlisted, all they can do is exercise their right to vote and try to unseat the domestic enemies.  But once they are discharged, they can run for office in their home towns and home states, and perhaps a few good Marines can save this nation from the current onslaught of bankrupting the country, socializing everything and stealing our freedom and liberty. 

Marines have great training and strong discipline.  They are the best and the brightest.  They are actually capable of reading a bill proposed in Congress.  They can tell the difference between right and wrong, pay for play, quid pro quo, you scratch my back and I’ll scratch your back, and plain old corruption.  Marines don’t mince words or speak in circles with Yale, Harvard, Columbia double-talk.  They don’t engage in “used car salesman” tactics; “This little car is in mint condition, owned by a little old lady who seldom ever drove it” (backslap).

But most importantly, Marines love their country.  They love freedom and individual liberty.  They’ve fought, and many have died, for it.   Give me a Marine any day over a Columbia University professor harboring old wounds, wacky ideas, socialist or worse, Marxist, ideas, and “control the world agendas”!  Give me a good ol’ American homegrown boy or gal who’s become a strong man or woman with American values and love of country!  Give me  a Soldier or Sailor from the Army, the Air Force, the Navy or the Marines who easily sees who the enemy is and calls a terrorist A TERRORIST!  Give me a Marine who will shoot at terrorists not at citizens exercising their First Amendment right to free speech which was initially written to protect political speech against the government.

Let’s start with one Marine, Jesse Kelly, in Arizona,  who says, “Send a warrior to Congress.  Does this look like a RINO?  They’re spending us off the cliff!  They’re destroying  this nation and while Im still breathing, I will not let it happen.  It’s time to be ‘in your face.’ 

I’m tired of President Obama and the liberals who control Congress insulting us, calling us racist, and calling us a mob. I’m tired of their double-talk. I’m tired of their bait-and-switch shell games. I’m tired of being avoided by my public servants. They have forgotten that they work for us. 

Ronald Reagan once famously said, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.” We are that generation! Either we stand now and fight for our country, or the great United States of America may be but a fading memory.”

Goals are to bring fiscal sanity back to Washington, D.C., stop the out-of-control spending and get back to the founding principles of free-market capitalism.

If you want to throw out all the old cronies who have corrupt money-making deals padding their bank accounts while socializing this county…

If you want people like Jesse Kelly in office to turn this Titantic around…

Then you must help him and every other “Jesse Kelly” running for office by forwarding their message and sending them contributions.   They are up against a vast machine – ACORN, SEIU, OBAMA TEAMS, THE DNC AND THE MAIN STREAM NEWS MEDIA.  They don’t have George Soros’ money to support their campaigns. 

Jesse Kelly is doing all he can to save your America for you and your posterity.  Help him as much as you can.    You will be helping yourself when you do.  One office at a time, we can turn this around.

Imagine sending this Marine to deal with the illegal aliens, the Mexican drug cartels, the murders, and kidnappings going on in that state.   Imagine sending Marines to every border state!  We might actually get the job done!

On 10 November 1775, the Second Continental Congress resolved to create two battalions of Continental Marines for the War of Independence from Britain. In 1798, President John Adams signed the Act establishing the United States Marine Corps.

It is the soldier, not the reporter, Who has given us freedom of the press.
It is the soldier, not the poet, Who has given us freedom of speech.
It is the soldier, not the campus [or community] organizer, Who has given us the freedom to demonstrate.
It is the soldier, who salutes the flag, Who serves beneath the flag, 
And whose coffin is draped by the flag, Who allows the protester to burn the flag.

– Father Dennis Edward O’Brian, USMC

tax man

So it’s Friday afternoon and everyone’s anxious to get on with their weekend plans, especially the Obamas who are taking off for a vacation in “the tony Martha’s Vineyard”, as some reporters put it.  They’ve rented a $20 million dollar farm from a wealthy Republican, which begs the question, “why did Michelle tell college students at their commencement ceremony to forego a corporate career and chose a life of service, essentially steering them away from making hefty salaries.  It seems like a case of “do as I say, not as I do”, which is a typical Obama pattern.

What you might have missed in all the vacation talk, or your own scurry home for the weekend, is the little bit of news released by the White House amidst the Friday afternoon “no one is paying any attention right now” time slot.  Obama’s administration has raised its 10-year deficit projection to approximately $9 trillion.  They tried to stick with the former projection of $7.1 trillion (oh what’s a trillion or two?), but finally had to agree with the Office of Management and Budget Office on the higher figure. 

This doesn’t include the universal health care bill that the Congressional Budget Office pegs at a cost of $1.6 trillion or the cap and trade bill that will wind up costing $2 trillion over eight years instead of Obama’s  initial projection of $646 billion.   As usual, the government underestimated the costs.  Don’t be surprised if they raise the projection for the cost of the health care bill, too.

So why do you think Obama’s people released the new $2 trillion higher figure on Friday afternoon as the President is capturing the news media’s attention with his vacation plans?  Why do they always tend to release bad information on Friday afternoon during the “no one’s paying any attention right now” time slot?

With the Communist Chinese buying our debt instruments, at least for now, we could find ourselves in a peck of trouble someday.  Where will the government get the  money to pay these astronomical debt amounts if and when the Chinese call it in?  They’ve got two places to grab a buck or a trillion bucks:  print it or take it from our paychecks by hiking taxes to astronomically high rates.  If they print it, the dollars in our bank accounts will be diluted to minimal value.  A dollar that once bought a  loaf of bread, now only buys one-fourth of a loaf.  So it could take four diluted dollars to buy the same loaf.  (Of course, I’m not trying to be accurate, just over-simplifying.)  Either way, or a combination of the two, would be devastating to families, young people trying to get started in life and retirees on a fixed income.

It certainly seems that Obama is hell-bent on taking Americans to that unholy place of “flat-broke” at home and in Washington, D.C.  Do you think the White House, the Congress and the Senate will give up their jets, cushy hotels, world travel, expensive restaurants and other perks to save money?  Rather doubt it, don’t you?  They never have!

We’re going to have to stand up and fight these bills and expenditures without growing weary.  We can’t let up.  Our future is at stake.  Our chidren and grandchildren’s futures are at stake.  America is a republic, and it should never be a banana republic.

Universal Health Care – Obama Intends to Get It Done

Posted on August 17, 2009. Filed under: Clinton, Dictator, Freedom, global governance, Health Care, Hillary, Liberty, News Media, Obama, Political, Socialism, U.S. Government | Tags: |

Obama intends to get it done, no matter what he has to do, no matter what he has to say.  He intends to get it done.  UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE.  SOCIALIZED HEALTH CARE.

Here’s the tactics he uses to sway the people. 

He speaks in generalities so that the public projects whatever they desire onto what he said.  They interpret what he means through their own desires.  He speaks in generalities so that no one can take issue with him and he can say that he didn’t say “that”. 

He says what he really means to his left wing, liberal and progressive special interest groups to secure their vote and enlist their help and support.   He’s at home with them and speaks the truth among friends.   When speaking to the general population on the same issue, he waters down his ideas and makes them acceptable to everyone, but keeps his agenda.   He brings the general public along gradually, or so he thinks.

He blames everything on the previous adminsitration and paints himself as just arriving and hands clean, all the while working furiously to strong arm everyone into compliance with his agenda.  Mr. Clean does his dirty work behind closed doors.

When speaking to the American public, he drops his Ivy League speech patterns and gets down to the level of the common man.  Many people fall for that one.  They believe he’s one of them and they trust him.  He is not your average Joe (No pun intended.  Apologies to Joe the Plumber.)  He lives among the rich, like the rich because he is rich.  Read Michelle Malkin’s new book, Cultur of Corruption.  One chapter explains all the ways Michelle Obama made hundreds of thousands of dollars every year after her husband was elected to the Illinois Senate and then more so after he became U.S. Senator from Illinois.

To ensure that his listeners trust him, he evokes their sympathy by telling a heart-wrenching story about  his mother or grandmother dying.  People are supposed to melt and agree with him.  Once he’s back at the White House, it’s business as usual –  hard line progressive, socialist or whatever category it falls into.  But it’s not what the freedom-loving Americans want.

When asked about his previous controversial statements, he claims he is being taken “out of context.”  However, there is plenty of evidence to the contrary.

A particularly disgusting tactic Obama uses routinely is to attack, mock and denigrate anyone and everyone who disagrees with or opposes him.  But, when the shoe is on the other foot and he’s being mocked, Obama is indignant.  How dare they?

A tactic that is particularly deceptive, but not exclusively Obamas’ is that of not calling a spade “a spade.”  The killing of a living human baby in its mother’s womb is not called murder, it’s called “abortion” because that is less repugnant.  The “death panels” in the health care plan are not called “death panels” because that is highly objectionable.  They are there, but they are given paragraphs of soothing descriptions rather than a name that sums up what they will do.  There will be lots of government appointed agencies that decide how to spend the allocated funds for health care.  They will have mandates and restrictions.  When money is tight, they will figure out that it is better, in their minds, to spend the money on younger, more productive people than on older retirees, the infirmed and the end of life’ers.  People will decide to allow some folks to die rather than spend a lot of money on their treatment.  As Obama said to a woman asking about care for the elderly, it might be better to give her mother a pain pill rather than surgery.   That decision should be left to each individual, not a government appointed stranger in another state.  This cannot be called “freedom” by anyone’s definition.

Lastly, Obama  says one thing and does the opposite.

He may have been forced to back off for now, but don’t let your guard down.  He intends to get it done.  He may tack parts of universal health care on the backs of other bills that have nothing to do with health care.  It may be passed in the middle of the night with little media coverage.

Don’t stop attending town hall meetings.  If Obama himself comes to your town, try to go and ask him about his statements in the video presented here.  Don’t accept  the answer that he was taken out of context.  He was not.  He’s said it too often in different places.   Ask him where HIS health care plan is.  (He doesn’t have one.)  Ask him when his discussion panel was ever on C-SPAN for the American people to watch.  Ask him when any of his bills, cap and trade, bail-outs, buying General Motors, and now health care, was ever open and transparent.  Ask him to list all the things that are MANDATORY in Congress’s health care plan and what the penalties are.

This man has lied to get elected, lies to get his agenda passed and lies when he’s asked about anything controversial.  There is no reason to trust him now.  He is saying whatever he has to say to get his agenda passed.  Know this – he intends to get it done, despite the American public.

Time Magazine’s Dr. Death Spin

Posted on August 14, 2009. Filed under: ACORN, Clinton, Dictator, Freedom, Health Care, Liberty, Obama, Political, U.S. Government | Tags: , , , , , , , |


The article in Time Online, “Ezekiel Emanuel, Obama’s ‘Deadly Doctor’, Strikes Back,” by Michael Scherer, August 12, 2009, seems like a spin control piece by an Obama supporter. If Mr. Scherer would read Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel’s book, The End of Human Life: Medical Ethics in a Liberal Polity, he would know that Dr. Emanuel has very radical views not aligned with main stream America.

Emanuel’s statements and writings have not been taken out of context. That’s the standard defense of anyone who’s been caught by the truth. Case in point, the YouTube video of Obama in 2007 stating that he favors a single-payer health care system in America. He has no defense. He’s caught. He can’t say that he didn’t say it, so he shifts to, “I was taken out of context.” That’s the usual defense when caught.

America should ask the question, “Why does anyone have to decide what kind of care and how much care any other human being is allowed to have?” There’s no need. Keep the government out of our most personal decisions. We’ll make them for ourselves. Then it won’t matter how radical Emanuel is or isn’t.

And as for those awards that are supposed to validate Emanuel’s statements, well, just remember that Yassar Arafat, father of modern day terrorism, was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize! Awards mean very little now days.

BTW, Americans should know that Chicago politics has moved to the White House. “No one has leveled with the public about these dangerous views. Nor have most people heard about the arm-twisting, Chicago-style tactics being used to force support. In a Nov. 16, 2008, Health Care Watch column, Emanuel explained how business should be done: “Every favor to a constituency should be linked to support for the health-care reform agenda. If the automakers want a bailout, then they and their suppliers have to agree to support and lobby for the administration’s health-reform effort.”

Do we want a “reform” that empowers people like this to decide for us? Betsy McCaughey, New York Post, Betsy McCaughey is founder of the Committee to Reduce Infection Deaths and a former New York lieutenant governor.
