You Probably Think This Speech is About You

You Probably Think This Speech is About You! Don’t you, don’t you, don’t you, don’t you? A jobs speech should be about you and jobs for you but it was really about him wasn’t it? Isn’t it always about him? What are all these folks in the audience applauding about? Did they serve Kool-Aide just before he spoke?

I wonder what the State of the Union will be about. Wait let me guess—I know I know – it will be all about that bad boy Bush – the deep deep hole that he dug for Obama and how hard Obama is working to try and dig us deeper – uhhhh – I mean –get us out of it. You would think somebody forced him to take this job and he no clue what he was getting into. Hmmmm- come to think of it – he had no clue !But I clearly remember him convincing folks that he was “The One ” the only one who could get us out of this mess and now all he does is blame it on Bush like it was a surprise. Sorry it was a real job he applied for huh?

Whatever Bama wants Bama gets

A few more baubles for the House holdouts and they’re there. He said it would be under budget but no one said the payoffs would meet that criteria did they? And low and behold the sweeteners may cost more than the bill in the end. I’d say this will be as historic as the presidency itself!

WH putting health-care off until … February?

posted at 11:36 am on December 23, 2009 by Ed Morrissey
Politico’s Mike Allen and Alexander Trowbridge have some bad news for Democrats, especially in the Senate, where Harry Reid has kept the chamber locked in battle over ObamaCare for weeks in an attempt to hit the finish line by Christmas.  Barack Obama plans to put the health-care overhaul on the back burner until after the State of the Union address, pushing any conference between the House and Senate off until February.  Instead, Obama plans a “hard pivot” towards jobs and the economy:

The White House privately anticipates health care talks to slip into February — past President Barack Obama’s first State of the Union address — and then plans to make a “very hard pivot” to a new jobs bill, according to senior administration officials.

Obama has been told that disputes over abortion and the tight schedule are highly likely to delay a final deal, a blow to the president who had hoped to trumpet a health care victory in his big speech to the nation. But he has also been told that House Democratic leaders seem inclined, at least for now, to largely accept the compromise worked out in the Senate, virtually assuring he will eventually get a deal.

Internally, White House aides are plunging into a 2010 plan calling for an early focus on creating jobs, especially in the energy sector, along with starting a conversation about deficit reduction measures, the administration officials said.

Both will be major themes for his first State of the Union speech, which will likely take place on Jan. 26 or Feb. 2. White House aides are in the early stages of planning for the national address, but Obama will not only trumpet what he has described as his “B-plus” performance in 2009 but also set the stage for the 2010 congressional campaigns.

This tells us that the White House has done some legwork in the House and found that the lower chamber is not going to adopt the Senate version as is, as Politico also reports this morning:

House Democrats insisted Tuesday they have no plans to roll over for the Senate in upcoming negotiations on a health reform bill, even as they acknowledged it would be all but impossible to reinsert a public insurance option or force the so-called millionaire’s tax on the Senate.

Either move would disrupt Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s no-margin-for-error 60-vote majority. But House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her leadership team seem to have their sights set on lower-profile – but no-less important – differences, like boosting affordability credits in the final bill and starting the insurance exchange a year earlier, which they did in the House.

On a conference call Tuesday, Pelosi (D-Calif.) walked the party’s leadership team through differences in the two bills.

Other differences the speaker mentioned Tuesday include: replacing the Senate’s state-run exchanges with a national exchange established under the House bill, adding tougher mandates to make sure everyone secures health coverage and closing a gap in prescription-drug coverage next year. Senate negotiators have agreed to close the so-called “donut hole,” but they haven’t agreed on a time to implement those changes.

Forget Raul Grijalva’s note of encouragement.  These issues will be too tough to overcome without the House reworking the bill.  That  will either require a conference committee to resolve the two bills or an attempt by Harry Reid to get the Senate to buy a House version (the “ping-pong” strategy), either of which would be subject to cloture votes and unlikely to succeed to a floor vote.

The longer that debate drags, the further Obama drops in the polls, which is why this move only makes sense if the White House sees weeks more futility in the health-care overhaul debate.  Even liberal commentators like the Seattle Times editorial board want Democrats to shelve ObamaCare and start paying attention to the fact that unemployment has spun out of control on their watch.  Deficits are even more wild, as Obama’s OMB Director Peter Orszag was forced to acknowledge when he admitted that he had underestimated deficits over the next ten years by 22%, or $2,200,000,000,000.

Unfortunately for Democrats in Congress, that move tosses them under a very big bus.  They wanted to close this debate as early as possible in order to allow anger over the unpopular measure to ebb in time for their re-election campaigns.  Under the new timing, Congress would have to consider ObamaCare and cap-and-trade in rapid succession, just in time for the summer and fundraising time.  Unlike last year, Democrats won’t be able to avoid appearing in public and being surrounded by Tea Party protests, and those two agenda items will provoke them to even more fury than last year.

The other term for “hard pivot” is “dithering.”  The more Obama dithers, the less likely ObamaCare becomes.

Obama’s Presidency in a Nutshell

Another Rant By: BettyJean Kling

Obama’s presidency in the first year is one where 33 Czars hold positions most of who are unapologetically either Socialist or Communists and are married or somehow related to one another in a twisted web of past controversies or tax compromises. It’s a year when Tiger is named the athlete of the decade, Obama is nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize nine days into serving and presented the Prize a week after committing 30,000 troops to Afghanistan totally against his voters’ wishes. It is also the same week of the same year Barbara Walters honors Michelle as the most fascinating person of the year and Time’s person of the year is none other than Ben Bernanke who is honored I  suppose for losing 7 million jobs! Barack grades himself a strong B+ but still refuses to release his actual grades but at least he got off  Oprah, Walters and Time First place possition so his wife could have a turn this year! 

I wonder does she get the Nobel next year?

Barack has no deaf-ense for a tin ear
By Michael Goodwin
NEW YORK POST -December 16, 2009

Of all the surprises of President Obama’s first year, the biggest is his continuing tin ear for the mood of the country. He often appears clueless about what Americans want.

Almost from the moment he stepped into the Oval Office, the man who smashed the Clinton machine and won an electoral landslide over John McCain seemed to lose his touch with the people who put him there.

Some days, many days, he doesn’t look like he cares that big chunks of the country, left, right and center, are giving up on him.

Voters by a large margin have said for months they don’t want the health-care overhaul he’s pushing, so he pushes harder. They want less spending and debt, so he doubles down on pork, bailouts, handouts and taxes.

They thought he would deliver bipartisanship, and he gives his hard-left allies the keys to the kingdom.

They worry about terrorism, so he wants to close Gitmo and move the worst of the worst to the homeland. With Ground Zero still a mess, he gives the 9/11 plotters civilian trials in New York.

His approval ratings are speeding downhill and some 60 percent say the country is on the wrong track. He responds by giving himself a “good solid B-plus” for his first year.

And he says Wall Street bankers “don’t get it.”

It comes as no surprise, of course, that our young president has a very, very high opinion of himself. But it is nonetheless shocking he remains so brazenly self-righteous in the face of growing public discontent.

A damn-the-torpedoes style of leadership would be welcome if he were an optimist brandishing an inclusive, sunny-side up vision. He’s not. He’s too often testy, churlish and downright whiny.

His vision is little more than a string of gauzy utopian platitudes glued together with fear, as when he told fellow Dems yesterday that the flawed health-bill represented “the last chance” for reform.

The last chance? Forever?

His charge that bankers have an obligation “to help rebuild the economy” by making more and presumably riskier loans boggles the mind. Low standards are the hair of the dog that led to liar loans and other housing disasters. By all means, let’s do it again.

When something goes wrong, it’s not his fault. “Fat-cat bankers,” “greedy” insurance companies, doctors who do amputations just for the money, special interests, the media — the media! — have all taken their turns being blamed for what he hasn’t fixed.

The buck doesn’t stop on his desk!

If all other scapegoats fail, there’s always George W. Bush. Pressed during last Sunday’s “60 Minutes” interview on his decision to send 30,000 more troops to Afghanistan, Obama shared his pain and slandered Bush — all to distinguish his troop surge from his predecessor’s.
 
 
 
 

 

And we thought Bush and his administration were out of touch with reality?  Well they were – but — it is we the people that are out of touch with reality if we do not realize we are in deep shit folks. We are in the throws of hell and unless we bind together  — NOW and throw these bums out this Nov. and every Nov. from here on out — we are nuttier than these weirdo’s running amuck in DC!

Voter Imposed Term Limits- NOW!

Who pulls Puppet Obama’s strings?

Has it really taken nearly a year for a troop of lawyers to ask these questions? Pardon me but it’s a no brainer! I have been calling him a puppet since the New Hampshire primary, but even the slowest of us figured this out before Inauguration Day!


Who’s Really Running the Show?
I have been having a nagging intuition lately that something is not quite right about Barack Obama.  I am not suggesting there is something wrong with the man, per se.  Nor am I talking about the crazy, even dangerous, policies coming out of the White House.  No, lately, I have been wondering if Barack Obama is, in fact, the person who is actually functioning as President of the United States

I mean, there’s no doubt that he fills the position of POTUS but is he really the one in command?  The man actually seems lost at times.  He seems to be reacting to ideas about which he does not really have a clue.  He has left the writing of this health care bill to Nancy Pelosi’s House of Representatives and she, in turn, has farmed the writing out to several fairly radical community action groups.   When questioned about health care, he seems not to know or understand the details and even with his silver-tongue seems unable to demonstrate any leadership on the issue.

With respect to Afghanistan and the rest of our foreign policy, he seems equally lost.  Especially when it comes to dealing with other world leaders.  He makes beautiful speeches but seems to be unable to cut deals which benefit our nation.  He seems to be acting as a pawn of much more clever world leaders.

The more I watch the man, the more I see a person who appears to be the “face” of some other entity or group.  He seems like a “front man”.  And it is becoming clear that his strings are being pulled by someone else.  He does not appear to be the man in command of the ship of state.  At least, he is not in the driver’s seat. 

You might recall that people said about Bush that he was a front man for the neo-cons and that it was really Dick Cheney that was running the show.  It turns out that Dick Cheney was not as influential in Bush’s second term as many thought but, perhaps it is true that the neo-cons, whoever they may be, were pulling some of Bush’s strings.

On the other hand, with Obama, it does not appear that there is anyone who is visible to we the people or the media who is pulling the strings.  If they are there, they are not in elected positions as Cheney was.  They are better hidden than that.

We know that he has been and remains surrounded by life-long radicals,  professed communists and anti-capitalists, some of whom he has even appointed as czars in his administration.  Thirty six czars, to date.  But is it Obama who is picking the czars or is it the czars who are running the show and propping up Obama as their front man? 

I know all this may  sound crazy but, really, when you look at the man without the idolatry and media worship,  does he really look like he knows what he is doing?  Does he seem to have a direction?  Firm convictions?  Something he deeply believes in?  The more he talks  now, the more his words seems empty of content.  Platitudes about America and the American people which, when he says them, simply do not ring true.  They are words being mouthed but not believed by him.

Okay, so maybe he is really clever, is firmly moving the ship to the left while mouthing the words of a centrist but I don’t think so.  What I used to think was that he was a really slick conman who was making us watch his left hand while he was manipulating us with his right. But, now I don’t think that so much.  I think the man is more plastic than real.  Now I begin to see him as the “Great and Powerful Oz”:  a fearsome presence who is being manipulated by men behind the curtain.  And while Obama does not have strong convictions, the men behind the curtain do.  And they are moving this country down a dangerous path.  All the while, we are being distracted by Obama and what he says and does.

Okay, maybe I am simply a mildly paranoid conspiracy theorist.  Why, you might ask, have Obama up there?  Why not have one of the actual people behind the curtain run for President.  Well, being a paranoid conspiracy theorist, I can come up with an answer to that question. Those other people behind the curtain have backgrounds that are so radical that they would never have made it past the first few days of a campaign.  Additionally, they are life-long community organizers and they know what kind of face can be effective if you wish to radically change the nation.  First, you need a black man to gain the support of the vast black minority.  Second, you need a pale skinned black man so as not to be too much of a threat to white Americans.  For the same reasons, you need a mixed race man who allies himself with the poor and down-trodden.  And you need someone who speaks well enough to co-opt the language of the right and appear to be a uniter, not a divider.  Someone who sees, or at least can articulate,  both sides of an issue.  This is the kind of man you would pick to be your front man so that while you move things drastically and dramatically left, the vast majority of Americans will not believe that was the intention of the moderate appearing front man. 

Yes, Obama was a community organizer.  Yes, he could be clever enough to have all this be his idea.  But he really wasn’t a community organizer for that long.  And when he was, he didn’t do anything truly radical.  It was more a time during which he was being trained than a time when he was driven by a personal sense of commitment to anything in particular.  There are people who are now in his government who have been community organizers and radical left wing activists for 20-30 years.  These people have deeply ingrained commitments to changing the system and have been actively trying to do so for all that time.  Obama is not one of them.  

 In my view, Obama has been trained and used as a puppet by others for a long time.  His successes seem to have come too easily, as if they have been orchestrated.  His life appears to have been pre-planned.  I mean, Harvard Law Review without publishing a single paper of note.  That is unusual.  A community organizer for a short time, a State legislator for a few years, a  freshman US Senator, a convention key-note speaker, and then POTUS.  How does that happen?  A person with zero governmental administrative experience is running the entire government of the United States .

How do 1100 page documents get developed and put out in such short order?  Who is writing all these proposals?  Does it not seem that something is just not quite right here?  Forget about the specifics of the policies for the moment.  Have you seen this level of activity in the first few months of any other administration in your lifetime?   Does Obama seem like the kind of person that could manage this level of activity in so short a time?  Too much does not make sense here. 

So, slowly but surely, I am becoming convinced that it is not Barack Obama who is running the show.  The White House has been captured by a group of people who are using Barack Obama as their front man.  He is nothing but an articulate but empty suit.  We have to start looking behind the curtains to find out who is really controlling the “great and powerful Obama”.

Something to think about.

Obama Confusion: bow touch salute?

You really can’t make this stuff up! He has been pictured over and over again during the campaign being the only one onbambi holding his dick stage not behaving appropriately as the other Americans showing Allegiance to out country.

But now that he is POTUS – one would think – one would hope — this Harvard scholar would  catch on or  would be surrounded by those who could somehow teach hom protocal. God help us- I never thought anyone could be more embarrassing than Baby Bush! Low and behold this one – beats all I have every seen.

He bows to foreign Kings, manhandles England’s queen but can’t seem to remember if and when to put his hand over his heart or salute our Honor Guard on Veterans Day 11/11/09, at the Ceremony in Arlington National Cemetery !

Unless he has one of those dreaded 4 hour errections – I cannot think of one good reason for this guy to be constantly seen with his hands clasped over his groin while everyone else is saluting or with their hand placed over their hearts. To top it all off we Americans get that that view at home  - yet when abroad all we get to see is his ass as he is always bent over to foreign Kings! What’s he doing mooning us or just saying kiss me ass America?
 

Obama Protocol

Another Rant By: BettyJean Kling

bowing japanIf he thinks I am going to buy this – he is dumber than he looks! His bow to the Saudi King caused such an indignation only a fool would give another full bow again and start that all over … unless he has an ulterior motive. He has, and I for one am not falling for that curtain call. Do they really take us for complete morons?

Standing alone the bow to the Saudi King would always bring him disparagement – but as one of several bows perhaps it’s repugnance to American’s can be diminished. Perfectly timed so as to appear part of this man’s MO when visiting country’s that expect bowing, he forgets he did not bow to England’s Queen not to mention he and his nervy wife actually put their hands on the Queen. What that a lack of reverence forshellyqueen England, or the Queen because she was a woman? Notice the full bow to Emperor Akihito  of Japan and the head nod to his wife, Empress Michiko. Even that was better than the pat on the back poor Lizzy got! ( Ooops that was Queen Elizabeth wasn’t it?)

So much for when in Rome … but then again let’s see if he kisses the Pope’s ring – after all that is custom when meeting the Pope – is it not? But American protocol is the only one i am concerned with as should our President be. More of the change we can do without!

Of course customs in foreign lands are to be respected- while those at home are ignored such as was done at Georgetown University when he appeared and had the Christ Figure covered! Is this what the man meant by Change? It feels more like Schizophrenia the way his motus operandi flips around and changes to suit or should I say attempt to fix every faux pas he manages to make both from his lack of experience and his handler’s blunder.

Meanwhile, Bill Clinton caught all kinds of hell for a mere head nod in 1994, while this POTUS ass appears as a full rump shot every chance it gets – well except in the presence of Queens — or so it would appear.

 “It wasn’t a bow, exactly. But Mr. Clinton came close. He inclined his head and shoulders forward, he pressed his hands together. It lasted no longer than a snapshot, but the image on the South Lawn was indelible: an obsequent President, and the Emperor of Japan.” … 

But the “thou need not bow” commandment from the State Department’s protocol office maintained a constancy of more than 200 years. Administration officials scurried to insist that the eager-to-please President had not really done the unthinkable.

“It was not a bow-bow, if you know what I mean,” said Ambassador Molly Raiser, the chief of protocol.

White House officials described Mr. Clinton’s tilt as something of an improvisation. Because Emperor Akihito broke with tradition in turn to raise his glass at the state dinner, some even said Mr. Clinton had managed something of a breakthrough.

“Presidents don’t bow, and Emperors don’t toast,” one official said. “So this was a little bit like the cultures meeting each other halfway.” http://www.nytimes.com/1994/06/19/weekinreview/the-world-the-president-s-inclination-no-it-wasn-t-a-bow-bow.html

Obama Bows to Japanese King This Time

What part of the American President does NOT bow to any royalty does Obama not understand. You would have thought he would have learned after the Saudi King fiasco of bowing, but he didn’t. Obvious to Americans that Obama was not raised as American as he makes the Office of President subservient to Kings unless it is Britain and then no protocol observed. Our most loyal ally and he treats the Queen like she is the next door neighborn not the Queen of England.

Obama supporters are deaf, dumb and blind

BettyJean Kling, Charles from NBC and Kathleen Hopkins

We three have been involved in third party politics for nearly 20 years- we became introduced during the Perot era and we have continued the good fight all this time to restore America to the people. Charles – who all this time has remained in the employ of NBC news had become an Obama supporter and has driven our group, still together all this time, off the deep end with his latest poll regarding the blog piece History is repeating.

Subject: History is repeating. Can we save America?

You know, it is truly disheartening to see people posting this stuff without taking half a minute to check it out at all. If you would do so, you would have found out immediately, as I did, that, while David Kaiser is a real and respected historian, this piece is a well-known hoax, long since exposed both by the well-known hoax detectives at Snopes http://snopes.com/politics/soapbox/proportions.asp and on Professor Kaiser’s own web site at http://historyunfolding.blogspot.com/ Be that as it may, there are still claims in this article on which some may want discussion. In a nutshell, here are the claims which appears in this piece:

a proposition that is so uncontroversial that it simply wants marriage to remain defined as between one man and one woman. Did you ever think such a thing possible just a decade ago? So, to begin with, a proposition rescinding the right in California for gays to marry, Proposition 8, should be considered uncontroversial. How many here agree with the characterization of such a proposition as uncontroversial?

unelected judges..write laws that radically change our way of life –
How many here agree that unelected judges are writing laws that radically change our way of life?

    mainstream Marxist groups like ACORN and others [are] turn[ing] our voting system into a banana republic –
    How many here agree with that statement?

we are at war with an enemy we cannot even name for fear of offending people of the same religion –
How many here believe that we no longer use the phrase “war on terror” because we are afraid of offending Muslims?

    we have elected a man that no one really knows anything about—
    How many here agree with that statement?

    All of his associations and alliances are with real radicals –
    How many here agree with that statement?

you have heard him speak about his idea to create and fund a mandatory civilian defense force stronger than our military for use inside our borders? –
Okay, how many here believe bama has called for the creation of this alleged civilian defense force?

This man campaigned on bringing people together, something he has never, ever done in his professional life. In my assessment, Obama will divide us–
How many here believe that Obama has never brought people together in his professional life? How many believe that Obama will divide us?

a former smooth-talking rabble-rouser from the streets, about whom the average German knew next to nothing. –
How many here agree that comparing Obama to Hitler is fair and accurate?

he was associated with groups that shouted, shoved, and pushed around people with whom they disagreed–
How many here agree with this characterization of Obama’s supporters?

The children of German citizens were at first, encouraged to join a Youth Movement in his name where they were taught exactly what to think.–
How many here agree this is what Obama is creating or will create?

He did it by indoctrinating the children, –
How many here believe that Obama is in the process of indoctrinating our children, or intends to do so?

advocating gun control, –
How many here believe that Obama will take away people’s guns?

health care for all, –
How many here agree that any nation where all citizens have health care must be a Nazi state?

Germany…in less than six years (a shorter time span than just two terms of the U. S. presidency)…was rounding up its own citizens, killing others, abrogating its laws, turning children against parents, and neighbors against neighbors.
How many here believe that Obama’s policies are leading in this direction?

To summarize, this piece makes 15 concrete statements. In general, how would you characterize the piece?

A) a piece of right-wing hate, which spreads wild and false smears, and one that is entirely inappropriate for this discussion group

B) a mainstream piece of political opinion, with which some may agree and with which some may disagree

C) an extraordinarily insightful and innovative piece, featuring superior historical understanding and correct analysis, a piece which provides this group with useful, definitive and provocative observations

In my opinion, to some extent, this piece may afford the members of this discussion group a chance to understand ourselves better. Who are we? What do we believe?
I want to thank in advance those who choose to respond to this survey. I believe it could be quite helpful and instructive for all of us. For what it’s worth, I would characterize this piece as A).

A lady who both Charles and I have know for the same 20 years and who I now consider my hero spend more time detailing her reply to Charles and I thought you also might enjoy her comments. Please feel free to add yours and I will pass them along to Kathleen.

Charles,

This is not a valid survey. What you have done is alter the opinion of the author in such a way that only a certifiable, wing-nut wearing a tin foil hat would answer in the affirmative. An amusing push-poll, Charles. After everyone voting disagrees with the questions as you have phrased them, you will then announce that the ARP officially disagrees with the opinions expressed in the article.

I don’t disagree. I don’t care who wrote the article–an opinion piece cannot be considered a “hoax.” I wish I’d written it. Come on, people, wake up! What’s happening didn’t just start with Obama–it’s been developing for a long time. Yes, the government did force banks to make loans to people who couldn’t pay (they could opt-out by contributing money to ACORN.) The Fed did loan unbelievable amounts of money and now won’t open their books. We have seen our country de-industrialized, and many say “intentionally.” Our schools teach revisionist history, focusing on what America’s done wrong. Teachers teach propaganda. (see “The Story of Stuff” produced by the Tides Foundation, funded by George Soros.) Lots of videos have surfaced showing school children singing the praises of Obama (some to the tune of popular hymns.) Parents remain clueless.

To say that there are similarities between America 2009 and pre-Nazi Germany is not to say that Obama and Hitler are the same. I did not read that in the article. Those who doubt the similarities should read about the Weimar Republic. We’re recreating it, folks. If it happened in Germany, it can happen here. Read “Liberal Fascism” by Jonah Goldberg. Oh, and, Charles, it’s a safe read for you because he barely mentions Obama.

Yes, Obama has called for a “civilian defense force” that is “just as well funded as the military.” He said it in a speech that I’ve listened to many times. Why oh why do we need that? Obama has surrounded himself with radicals: Van Jones, avowed Marxist (now resigned), John Holdren who 30 years ago was predicting an ice age, not global warming. He also wanted forced sterilization. Cass Sunstein who once wanted to ban hunting but will now settle for heavily regulating who can buy a gun. Anita Dunn who is paid to watch Fox News all day and says her two favorite “political philosophers” are Mother Teresa and Chairman Mao–and she thinks about them every day. Then, of course, there’s Bill Ayers and his buddy who founded the Weather Underground and blew up the Pentagon. There’s so many czars and advisors I don’t have time to go into them all. But stories on every single one. Yes, even including pretty Valarie Jarret.

I agree completely with the author (whoever it is) in this comment: “I have never been so afraid for my country and my children as I am now.” Those of you who are still filled with hope are not watching/reading the news. Charles, I know you’re loyal but everyone at NBC is drinking their own kool-aide. Same with most of the rest. I used to divide between CNN and Fox, but after CNN didn’t cover a number of important stories, I’ve settled on Fox. That’s the only place you find the stories behind the stories and that asks the important questions.

Charles, you are trying to turn the ARP into an arm of the Progressive Movement, and I will resist that until my dying day. (Again, read “Liberal Fascism.”) If any of you want to experience “hope,” read “The 5000 Year Leap.” That’ll make you believe in America again!

Kathleen

PS, I REALLY like Glenn Beck! (sorry, Charles, I couldn’t resist.)

The Hillary Moment: Use it or Lose it

Editorial: Oct. 6, 2009 — The Hillary Moment: Use it or Lose it
October 6, 2009 by John Charlton

WHY HILARY CLINTON IS AT THE PEAK OF HER POWER and WHAT SHE CAN DO WITH IT
by John Charlton

I did not vote for Hillary Clinton. But this week I am a Hilary Clinton fan, in a sense. Let me explain.

Hillary Clinton, the Secretary of State of the United States under Barack Hussein Obama, is, in my opinion, the most powerful person on the planet right now; that is, this week.

She holds this position because the unique circumstances of history which have brought the United States into its present Constitutional Crisis; and of events which have unwittingly put her in the position of restoring the Republic and the Democratic Party, by her action, or destroying the same by her inaction.

Why?

Because this week Plaintiffs in two cases are waiting to hear judgment whether they have standing to sue Obama for not being eligible to hold the office of presidency.

And its obvious as heck that the judges are scared to death, in my opinion, of the consequences of granting standing, on the one hand, because of the political turmoil that they believe would result; and, on the other, are concerned about destroying public confidence in the Article III judiciary.

The cases of which I speak are Barnett vs. Obama and Kerchner vs. Obama; and they are in the hands of Judges David O. Carter, of the California Southern Division and Jerome B. Simandle the New Jersey Middle Division federal courts.

This, combined with the massive outpouring of public wrath at the course Congress and the Obama Administration have taken in the last 9 months, the 1.7+ million Tea Partiers who marched assembled in Washington, D.c., last month, and the sinking support in the polls for Obama, put Hilary in an enviable position; unique in her career, unique in the history of the nation.

If Hilary Clinton just simply said simple one sentence, this week, it would cause the Obama administration to implode; resurrect the Democratic party as a viable entity in the 2010 elections, and be met with a swift ground swell of support from the entire people of the United States who still believe in the rule of law.

What is this sentence?

“After careful legal and historical study, I don’t believe Obama is a natural born citizen; and therefore I request Congress to hold hearings to determine whether he lawfully occupies the office of President of the United States, in accord with the objective requirements of Article II, Section ii, paragraph 5, of the U.S. Constitution!”

Such a statement would show the following about Hilary Clinton’s character:

1) It would definitely demonstrate that she is a person of integrity, who puts the U.S. Constitution before all else.

2) It would definitely prove that, as a woman, she is not a follower but a leader.

Such a statement would have the following beneficial results from either her point of view, or objectively speaking.

1) It would show Democrats and Republicans that there is life in the political corridors of Washington, D.C., and that her sense of integrity will not be silenced on any issue.

2) It would revitalize the Democratic Party; not only by energizing the Hilary Democrats, but by giving her fellow Democrats who are Senators and Representatives a way of saving their 2010 relection campaigns, by definitively distancing themselves from the constant parade of lies from Obama and his ongoing campaign.

3) It pull the planks out from under the Republican Party, who has not shown even as much integrity or honesty on the issue; and forestall their claim to this issue in the 2010 elections.

4) It would create a political climate in which Carter and Simandle could uphold the constitution.

5) It would completely demolish the house of cards upon which Obama has built his candidacy and regime.

6) It would be simply be the truth.

7) It would be the consummate political maneuver of the century.

8) It would put her in line to ascend to the presidency, when Obama and Biden are shown to be fraud and co-conspirator in fraud, as they are.

9) It would be her right, for having been robbed of the Democratic Nomination by fraud in the primaries (TX, MI, FL).

10) It would be “impeachable testimony,”* because it is manifestly evident from the books of law and history, and from Obama’s biographies, that his father being a british subject, at the time of his birth, causes him to be ipso fact, NOT a natural born citizen; and therefore ineligible to be president.

Finally, to those who might criticize Hillary Clinton for accepting the position of Secretary of State under Obama; it could easily been shown that for many Americans, even the best legal minds, it has taken more than a year to clarify this issue properly, and that she has now had sufficient time to inform herself and assure herself of the justice of acting now.

Lady Secretary, for the love your bear our great Nation; I ask you to use this power, which Providence has placed in your hands; and speak out!

Finally, Hilary Clinton is at the peak of her power this week, because once this moment passes, she either will be just another stooge on the ship of tyranny, or pirate on the sinking ship of fraud; she will have missed her moment for self-liberation, self-vindication, and rebirth.

If Carter should deny standing, Simandle will certain follow suit; then Hilary would be in a new position, where she could not claim a neutral legal question; and would have reason to believe that no one would heed her.  She would be silenced, and powerless to do anything other than resign, if she wanted to distance herself from Obama.

This week all eyes can look to Washington, and watch Hilary Clinton; is she the creature of a male dominated, demogagic political machine, which just plays up to minority interests, and uses women, especially her, to garner votes for an old boy system; or is she a genuine leader of woman and of men; destined to be one of the leading female figures of American History and patriotic tradition in centuries to come.

It a way Hilary might positioned to be a second mother to the Nation; because its very existence as a free nation lies in a sense in her hands; and she has power of life or power of death over it.

It’s your choice, Madam Secretary.

Choose Life!

* “impeachable testimony” — is not a typo. Think about it. And no, I am not refering to the process of impeachment.

Obama: The brunt of jokes- but it’s much too sad to laugh about

SNL Pokes Fun at Obama for his Lack of Accomplishments

This is no laughing matter! After 8 years of Bush, even 4 years of this empty suit is more than we deserve! This makes me so damned angry, I’d like to shake the hell out of the morons that fell for this crap. I sure hope they are happy with what they wound up without! Damned Fools! Historic my ass! And I have no intention of being big about this- no intention at all- they in their ignorance and greed – have put us on the road to destruction and have helped strip this country of democracy and I am not about to be charitable about it. No one damned bit. The MSM needs fired and we the people damned well better find someone to run against the entrenched crooks by 2010! Oh and the fools who helped do this – either better learn how to vote or stay the hell home!

When Does Dissent Equal Racism?

We’ve heard it before and sadly, it seems it will be trotted out again and again and again…  If you don’t support Obama you must be a closeted Republican or a racist.  This was the mantra marched out at all the democratic primaries and caucuses across this nation from January of 2008 through the general election of November 4, 2008. If you aren’t supporting Obama you must be a racist.  Interestingly, many of the problems we kept seeing in Obama are now surfacing more widely: his lack of experience, managerial and executive, his continual campaigning for the next office, his associations with those who ideals did not reflect our own American values, and so on.  But very few if any voiced an issue with his race.

One of the best responses I know is perhaps the simplest.  If America is so mired in racist mentality and simply put is a HORRIBLY RACIST NATION, how did this man of mixed race, who classifies himself as African American / Black win the election and become President? 

Let’s set the record straight IT’S NOT ABOUT RACE!

I give you the following thoughful response to those chanting racism.

Statement of Deneen Borelli on Allegations of Racism Against Critics of Obama Policies

Washington D.C. This statement was issued today by Deneen Borelli of the national black leadership network Project 21:

“There they go again. Now Jimmy Carter has joined House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Charlie Rangel, Texas Representative Eddie Bernice Johnson, New York Governor David Paterson, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, the New York Times’ Maureen Dowd and others on the left in claiming racism is behind criticism of President Obama’s big-spending policies.

The public is outraged about the president’s policies — the spending, the budget, the deficit — not his skin color.

President Obama was not elected only with black votes. Are those who cry ‘racism’ saying the American people suddenly woke up and said, ‘oh, he’s black so I don’t like him anymore’? That makes no sense. The criticism of Obama’s policies is about the policies — the stimulus, the growth of government, cap-and-trade, the health care bills, the overspending.

It’s easier for the left to play the race card than address the public’s legitimate concerns, but what the left and the media are doing is damaging and dangerous.

It’s damaging because when everything is racist, then nothing is. Those who cry racism without evidence will cause people to tune out in cases in which there is evidence.

It’s dangerous also to send a message that racism is behind everything. What does that tell young black men and women? It tells them they will never get a fair shake and that white people who have never met them dislike them. With a message like that, it’s no surprise we’re seeing apparently racial incidents like the widely-circulated video of a young white student being beaten up on a school bus by black students while other black students cheer. What message have those black students internalized from liberal leaders like Rangel, Johnson, Paterson, Matthews and Dowd and now former President Carter? That white people are their enemy.

If this continues — if not already — the left will literally have blood on its hands, and all because it was too dishonest and too cowardly to have a fair debate with the American people on policy.”
