Not accidental facts...

The greatest gift of my training in psychiatry has been the ability my mentors nurtured in me to really listen to what people say. This is harder than it sounds.

It took me years to overcome the natural tendency to gloss over the very important things people say—the ones that might trigger anxiety or sadness or anger if focused upon clearly or at length.

This avoidance of hearing messages that people convey is a very human reaction when what they are saying is almost too big to take to heart.

The same dynamic explains why people fail to recognize predators even in the face of much data that they are unsafe, why they fail to hear the desperation in the words of a loved one who later goes on to commit suicide, why they fail to internalize expressions of genuine (and boundless) love from another person and why they fail to follow-up with questions about true revelations another offers about his or her deepest feelings and most powerful experiences.

It is as if the mind and soul are fitted with shock absorbers triggered only by the biggest bumps in the road—a kind of onboard, on call denial—so that special focus is required to register them.

I believe this internal shock absorber has prevented many Americans from really listening to the most significant messages President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama have delivered.

One of these messages is that the Obamas are profoundly ambivalent about whether America and Americans have historically been a force for good or ill in the world. This is why the president has repeatedly apologized for America’s behavior, in a way that not only signals other nations that our leader is at best uncertain about our moral character, but may plant self-doubt about our decency in own population.

It is why the first lady honestly stated during the campaign that "for the first time in my adult lifetime" she was proud of her country.

It is why the president would remain in a church where the pastor has been quoted as saying, “God damn, America!” and would bring his children to that church to listen and learn.

These are not accidental facts. They are not meaningless. They encourage denial because they are so stark and so massive in scope that they make us not want to grapple with the inevitable conclusion that our country is being led by someone who isn’t so certain he likes his countrymen.

Another significant message from the president is that he is sincerely suspicious of businesses—large or small—unless those businesses are controlled by the government in a way that approximates government ownership of them.

This is what is meant by stating plainly that redistributing wealth is good, by teaching businesses to come to the trough to drink up bailout monies, by seeking oversight over which executives companies hire and how much they are paid and by burdening businesses with social agendas like “health care reform” and other red tape that can bring them to their knees.

Again, these are not accidental facts, nor meaningless. We can screen out the huge impact and import of them because they are almost unthinkable—constituting, as they do, this reality: Our commander-in-chief isn’t so sure he likes us, or our way of life. In fact, it certainly sounds, if you listen, to him, that he does not.

Americans are behaving a lot like the children I treat who grew up in homes in which their parents did not love them. They deny it. They do everything they can to believe, otherwise including wondering whether they themselves are to blame.

If we were deprived of denial, if we were willing to really listen and really be shocked, if we were willing to be wrong and wronged, we would have to admit that we elected a man to lead our country who just doesn’t express much love for it—or us.

Liberty and Justice

The United States of America was founded first and foremost upon a "radical" notion: Individual Human Liberty. No king would rule America. [One of the earliest battle cries of the American Revolution was "No king but King Jesus!"] Government cannot and must not dictate religious doctrine, political ideology, economic policy or scientific methods.

Thomas Jefferson did not invent American Liberty. Nor did James Madison or George Washington. America's Founders and Framers looked far back into all of human history and analyzed governments past and present.

The very idea of American Liberty was and is rooted in the concept of Natural Law — the Law(s) of Nature and of Nature's God. Follow the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God and you will succeed. You will be happy and prosperous despite those who hate you or want to suppress you. Disregard those laws and you will fail. You will be miserable and you will blame anyone and everyone for your failures except yourself.

Liberty is the near absolute right of any individual human being to think, to say and to do anything and everything he wants as long as he is responsible to the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God.

Justice happens when any and every person is punished (or forced to give retribution) for any violation of the Law(s) of Nature and/or of Nature's God.

Tyranny

Tyranny is the opposite of Liberty. Liberty is founded upon Truth — the Word and the Will of man's Creator and the Author of Law. Tyranny is manifest in the philosophies ("wisdom") of man. Tyranny is achieved when the "wisdom" of man supersedes Truth. Tyranny happens whenever the word and the will of man supplants the Word and the Will of God.

Dependence

Dependence upon the word and the will of man is the opposite of Liberty. It is tyranny! Even the slightest degree of reliance on government invites tyranny. Any idea of "domestic policy" violates Natural Law, the U.S. Constitution and common sense.

Dependence (reliance) upon Truth — the Word and the Will of God — is Liberty!

Extremist notions

Before 1775, the idea of Liberty was an extremist notion. Stupid "masses" governing themselves?! Perish the thought! Absurd! Extreme!!

At least 150 years subsequent to 1775, the United States of America became the freest, greatest, most productive, most creative, most generous nation in human history. Why? Liberty: that "extremist notion."

There have always been and will always be men and women — mostly men! — who crave power and control. They want you, the "stupid, unruly masses," dependent upon them.

Liberty — profound respect for the U.S. Constitution with its principle of enumerated and limited powers of government, and love for bottom-up government sans bloated bureaucracies — is an extremist notion to only two types of people: 1) Those who seek power and control over you and me, and 2) Those who are willing to cede their rights, responsibilities and liberties to an all-powerful government.

On the very day that these two types of people become the majority in the United States of America, Liberty will be vanquished from the earth.

The coming storm...

There is a perfect storm that is coming. I suspect that one day soon, if we fail to take control of our rogue government and set things right, we will watch as all TV stations display a test patter and then go to the Rose Garden and the President will walk to a podium and announce that the economy has utterly collapsed. On all stations, he will tell us that the banks have closed. Bring out your guns, your gold and your silver to the front porch for immediate confiscation. Remain indoors until further notice. We will be issuing a new currency (whatever it may be, Amero-Dollar or perhaps the Phoenix Dollar which was displayed on the front page of the Economist Magazine in – 1984) and our government will now capitulate to the North American Union (or whatever other form they will conjur up) and the UN is sending troops to enforce the current state of Martial Law.

I do not mean to try and peddle fear. However, the powers-that-be have clearly been attacking our Constitution for a very long time. Our senators are now elected instead of being appointed by their respective state governments, thanks to the 17th amendment. This made them easier to purchase by the global elite. The Patriot Act, written during Bill Clinton’s first term, has morphed into a great monster. The Health Care Bill had nothing to do with Health Care – it was all about taxation and control. It is blatantly unconstitutional. Go and read the commerce clause in the Constitution. It is short and sweet and nowhere does it say that our government can make us buy anything. Yet, they have done just that. And we, the Sheople submit and comply.

And my point is that we just keep taking it. The big banks, the multinational corporations and the military industrial complex call the shots. All of the dreaded “isms” have given birth to the new Corporatism. The Constitution hangs in tattered shreds. We are beaten into submission on a daily basis by the main stream media that whistles up its monsters of fear and doom unless we comply, comply comply. All is lost. If we don’t give the Banksters what they want, all that we have will crumble and the world will cease to exist. Well – so be it. I mean, what do you do when a tornado or hurricane has its way with you? You come out, roll up your sleeves, work together and rebuild.

Some would say, where is Robespierre and his Guillotine-to-Go when we need him? Remember that the pendulum rarely reaches an equilibrium that we can deal with. I suspect that if the “Too-Big-To-Fails” were allowed to fail and the Rats jump ship (the easier to identify them and round them up), there would be turmoil. Your favorite brand of Suds may not be available and you may have to become resourceful. Indeed, over seven milion or more starved to death in the last Great Depression. And starting another war is no answer. We have been hit with so many “lefts” that we are begging for a “right.” We are going to have to endure our lumps, fight back and and take some more. No one ever said it would be easy. Our lives, our liberty, our Constitution, and our country demand that we stand up and set things to rights. To refer to Louis Lamour: you (meaning all of us) saddled this bronc – let’s see if you can ride him.

And can we? Our Founding Fathers warned us that we were given a Republic, if we can keep it. This was never intended to be a democracy. Remember, the Republic protects the poor lamb at the dinner table of wolves. Her unalienable rights can never be taken and she is safe. No lien can be attached to her rights and they are heald sacred in the Bill of Rights. So do not be fearful of the mainstream media and their controlled release of reality. Make no mistake – we are in for the fight of our lives and this journey begins with the first step. Pull the plug on the Too-Big-To-Fails, deny them their illegal foreclosures, make them belly-up to the bar and face Judge Roy Bean – the sooner, the better.

Nevada voting machines automatically checking Harry Reid's name; voting machine technicians are SEIU members

Clark County is where three quarters of Nevada's residents and live and where Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's son Rory is a county commissioner. Rory is also a Democratic candidate for governor.

Since early voting started, there have been credible reports that voting machines in Clark County, Nevada are automatically checking Harry Reid's name on the ballot:

Voter Joyce Ferrara said when they went to vote for Republican Sharron Angle, her Democratic opponent, Sen. Harry Reid's name was already checked.

Ferrara said she wasn't alone in her voting experience. She said her husband and several others voting at the same time all had the same thing happen.

"Something's not right," Ferrara said. "One person that's a fluke. Two, that's strange. But several within a five minute period of time -- that's wrong."

Clark County Registrar of Voters Larry Lomax said there is no voter fraud, although the issues do come up because the touch-screens are sensitive. For that reason, a person may not want to have their fingers linger too long on the screen after they make a selection at any time.

Now there's absolutely no independently verified evidence of chicanery with the voting machines (yet), but it is worth noting that the voting machine technicians in Clark County are members of the Service Employees International Union. The SEIU spent $63 million in elections in 2008 and is planning on spending $44 million more this election cycle -- nearly all of that on Democrats. White House political director Patrick Gaspard is formerly the SEIU's top lobbyist, and former SEIU president Andy Stern was the most frequent visitor to the White House last year.

Just in Nevada, the SEIU has given a lot to groups that are heavily vested in the state -- in just one prominent example, the SEIU gave $500,000 to the Patriot Majority PAC, which has spent $1.3 million against Reid's opponent Sharron Angle. They've and have dropped large sums directly on candidates:

NV-3


Joe Heck (R)


Oppose


$140,000.00

NV-3


Dina Titus (D)


Support


$344,984.00

NV-Senate


Sharron E. Angle (R)


Oppose


$225,000.00

Now the county voting technicians aren't unique here -- many of Clark County's employees are also represented by the SEIU. But it is worth mentioning, the SEIU is hyperpoliticized and has seen its fair share of corruption. (It certainly seems more questionable than Diebold, the voting machine manufacturer with Republican ties that was at the center of many conspiracy theories on the left during the Bush administration.)

Unions increasingly have a major financial stake in election outcomes, both as a matter of their own election expenditures, and as a function of what they stand to gain if their legislative agenda is enacted. Should they really be responsible for tabulating the votes? That's certainly something voters ought to think long and hard about.

Below is Clark County's SEIU contract -- On Page 75, in Appendix A, voting machine technicians are listed as positions represented by SEIU.

Mortgage Crisis Is 'Cancer,' 'Slow Wasting Process,' Analyst Says

The foreclosure crisis is slowly killing the nation's economy, and the government has no idea what to do, analyst Christopher Whalen said on Bloomberg television.

Whalen, managing director of Institutional Risk Analytics, who earlier this month speculated the nation is only one quarter of the way through the foreclosure crisis, said the current situation is reminiscent of the early years of the Great Depression -- both in the severity of the crisis and the inefficacy of the government response.

"This is cancer. This isn't a sudden crisis that's going to erupt out of the ground like some monster trying to eat us. It's a slow, wasting process," Whalen told Bloomberg's Mark Crumpton. "Barack Obama is walking in Herbert Hoover's shoes. They're making the same mistakes, almost unconsciously."

An unforeseen consequence of the crisis, he said, is the blow to property taxes. When people lose their homes, they stop paying property taxes, and with states and municipalities in serious debt trouble, this will only make the situation worse. Whalen predicted disunity between Federal and local governments.

"We're going to have state moratoria, the way we did in the '30s," he said. "The governors of those states are going to say, 'Folks, stay in your homes, keep paying your property taxes, default on your mortgage. That's Washington's problem.'"

It's not just homeowners who are in trouble. Investors, Whalen said, should call their lawyers. In many cases, mortgage securities lack the notes that give investors their collateral. As Whalen put it, "the Street was very sloppy."

He discussed his own mortgage as emblematic. It was originated, he said, by Bank of New York and then sold to Lehman Brothers, who eventually packaged it in a security. But there's no court record of that.


"There's an awful lot of investors out there who don't know what they own," Whalen said. "This is a much broader issue than just contract law."

America is gone.

By David Deming
There is a whiff of anarchy in the air this morning. As I sit here writing, a conservative victory in the midterm elections looms. But I find no reason to be optimistic. The midterm elections will solve nothing. The plain fact is that conservatives have lost the battle for America. The country that many of us were born in has ceased to exist. And we have no one to blame but ourselves. Nothing can or will change until we come to terms with the grim reality of moral degeneration. And I have no hope that this can happen, save by some terrible trial.

Last week in Oklahoma City, two pedestrians were run down by cars at the same intersection within a few hours. In one incident, the driver did not bother to stop, but continued driving as if nothing had happened. It was a horrific but perfect metaphor for the self-absorbed entitlement mentality that grips the country.

Every day, the news brings a startling new incident of moral corruption. A few days ago it was reported that an eighteen-year-old geology student at Arizona State University had starred in an online pornographic film in which she performed "explicit and degrading" sex acts for a one-time payment of $2,000. The young woman explained that she needed the money to supplement her scholarship, and then inexplicably proclaimed, "I have morals!"

We are a nation of gluttons. About one-third of adults in the U.S. are obese. To qualify as "obese," the average person has to be not just overweight, but carry an extra thirty-five pounds or more. In the last thirty years, the obesity rate in America has more than doubled. It is the sheerest irony that today, the average person has the choice of a multiplicity of fresh, wholesome, and nutritious foods, all available at the lowest prices in history. But choosing and preparing the best foods takes time and effort. We would rather stuff ourselves with fast food because it's tasty and convenient. The consequences of this slothful lifestyle include hypertension, diabetes, and heart disease. After ruining our health through gluttony, we then go to our physicians and demand a quick fix in the form of a pill. Pharmaceutical companies are glad to oblige. And the government must pay, because free health care is now a "right."

There is no better index for America's moral degradation than television programming. Compare today's shows with those of a generation ago. Every episode of "The Andy Griffith Show" contained a short moral lesson, and "The Twilight Zone" challenged our intellects and stretched our imaginations. But entertainment and instruction have devolved into shock and novelty. The networks are locked in a downward spiral to see who can provide the most outrageous and offensive programming. It's not their fault. They're just giving the American people what they want.

Children are not as smart as their parents. The average child today spends thirteen hours watching television for every hour he spends reading. We blame teachers and schools for failing to educate our children. But what can they do with undeveloped and undisciplined minds that expect to be entertained and rebel at the labor of thought? The decline in intellectual aptitude is so dramatic that the authors of the SAT test have had to add a hundred points to the combined math and verbal score just to make current averages equal of those of a generation ago.

We are oblivious to the fact that our society is intellectually and artistically bankrupt. Modern art is not good enough to be bad. At the beginning of the sixteenth century, Leonardo da Vinci took four years to paint the Mona Lisa. He left the work unfinished because he was always seeking to add "perfection to perfection." Earlier this year, x-ray fluorescence spectroscopy revealed that the way Leonardo created realistic flesh tones was by building up successive layers of pigments that were as thin as a few micrometers. A micrometer is a thousandth of a millimeter.

Compare Leonardo's work with that of the modern American artist Robert Ryman. Ryman began his career working as a security guard at a museum. The guard decided he wanted to become a painter, so he bought some white house paint and slathered it on a canvas. Art critics had orgasms. For decades, Ryman has continued to produce paintings that consist of nothing but monochrome white. The tones and textures vary, but most of Ryman's paintings consist of nothing but a plain white surface. Ryman has explained that he paints only white surfaces because he wants to "reduce visual disturbances." Imagine that the next time you're contemplating Michelangelo's "disturbances" on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel.

Our popular music is a painful cacophony of obnoxious dissonance. The eighteenth and nineteenth centuries had Mozart, Beethoven, and Tchaikovsky. We have Snoop Dogg and Lady Gaga. Is that progress? We have advanced technology, but do we use it to uplift ourselves? No, we indulge the animal side of our natures. The internet is mostly used for downloading pornography or playing video games.

In America today, everyone is entitled to everything. According to a recent report by NPR, the mentally retarded are now attending college and receiving grants. Professors are being advised (i.e., pressured) to modify their curricula to accommodate the new students. People incessantly demand entitlements and handouts. Every government intervention in the free-market system creates a fresh problem that demands another ruinous intervention with unintended consequences. Nobody is responsible for anything, and no one wants to pay the bills. And believe me, they're coming due.

In this brave new world, everyone has the right to not be offended, and no one can be held accountable for anything. The fundamental unit of human civilization, the family, has been caustically eroded by feminism. The divorce rate is fifty percent. Oklahoma is supposedly a conservative state. Last year, a state legislator introduced a bill that would require parents with minor children seeking a divorce to first undergo counseling. Not only was the bill not passed, but the legislator was derided and mocked. How dare anyone be required to undertake the work necessary to save a marriage for the sake of his or her children? Why, it might interfere with their pursuit of happiness.

We celebrate homosexuality and then wonder why sexually transmitted diseases are exploding. According to the CDC, men-who-have-sex-with-men make up only two percent of the population but account for 53 percent of all new HIV infections and 64 percent of all new syphilis cases.

I'm beginning to acquire an appreciation for Paul's doctrine of Original Sin. The nation that began with freedom of religion has progressed to freedom from religion, freedom from moral constraint, and freedom from responsibility. Just as Plato described in the Republic, the "horses and asses" are "marching along with all the rights and dignities of freemen," and the ultimate result can be only that "tyranny will spring from democracy."

Elections matter only in the short term. Every long-term social index I am aware of is negative. The plain fact is that the American people are too morally degenerate to be capable of effective self-government. The Roman satirist Juvenal understood. "The people that once bestowed commands, consulships, legions and all else, now meddles no more and longs eagerly for just two things -- bread and games!" I can find no reason to be optimistic. It is only our blind vanity that lets us pretend that the United States can endure forever. Rome fell, and so will America. For all intents and purposes, it is already over.

Let's tell it like it is...Unfit for the office.

Conservative columnist Alan Caruba wrote a most excellent article, where he posed the question as to whether or not Obama is a moron. This article will answer that question.

Stupid is, as stupid does and the following is what the Obama´s have presented as their presidential legacy, for the national perusal:

This couple has transformed national service into a permanent White House vacation, including a free pass for Obama´s illegal alien aunt to get out of jail.

Barack H. Obama thinks he is president and Tiger Woods, rolled-into-one, in that by his actions, he shows he would rather play golf, than properly run a country as a good steward.

Michelle Obama conducts herself as if she were Marie Antoinette, gallivanting around the globe as a celebrity and playgirl, while her countrymen suffer the collapse of their country, while struggling to make ends meet, as they lose their homes and jobs.

It is now a well established fact that Obama is a supreme kowtow artist, who continually humiliates his high office and this nation in the world theater. For this fantastic spectacle alone, he should be unceremoniously yanked off the stage of world history, as he is clearly NO American president.

Obama is NOT the worst president, but rather an aberration in the pantheon of the American presidency. It might be said that this Manchukuo puppet emperor of the Council on Foreign Relations is the equivalent of Maximilian I of Mexico. Certainly he shares a common heritage with the Iranian usurper Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, in that both “leaders” do not hold the mandate of heaven, or their respective peoples.

Obama´s modus operandi is to block investigation of his origins, rather than provide an open record of his achievement in any capacity, past or present. Usurpation alone does not qualify as a crowning glory, despite the flawed logic which compels Obama to boast of a “transparent administration.”

This “mystery man” also functions as a supreme impediment to the protection and defense of America´s borders and if that were not enough shame for the nation to bear, he has also deemed it wise to comport himself as a quisling and tattle-tale, making a spectacle of himself, by running to Red China and the United Nations to complain about the country which honored him with vast realizations of power. Obama has damned the nation which elected a black president with spurious charges of “racism.”

Obama´s Ministry of Truth–the Department of Justice– is a kangaroo court, headed by Attorney General, Eric H. Holder, who is also a shame to his honored position, insofar as he dispenses a double standard of “justice” with his selective enforcement of the law, under color of authority.

What are the people to think of a law officer who pronounces judgment before examining the facts of a case, because he is too is lazy and narcissistic?

“…Who´s to doom, when the judge himself is dragged to the bar?” Herman Melville

This regime drafted a health care bill in excess of two thousand pages for the perusal of the people and their alleged ” public servants,” but could not be bothered to read the sixteen page Arizona immigration law bill, drafted by law professor Kris Kobach.

Due to Obama´s outrageous abuse of power, in directly thwarting the will of the American people to defend their borders, he must be regarded as an enemy combatant within the gates, who was publicly humiliated and dressed down by Arizona Governor Jan Brewer, when she told him to “do his job.”

Velma Hart completed the coup de grace of diminishment for Obama.

An intelligent man would not allow himself to be so blinded by his own narcissism to the point where he could imagine his own personal will trumps the collective will of the American people. In short, Resident Obama is the worst form of tyrant in that he serves the overlords of high finance, to the general detriment in the welfare of this nation, which finds itself under the onslaught of the Third World.

Rulers are always morons.

Obama is an agent of finance capital and not a servant of the American people. His ears are stopped with corporate wax. He does not hear the anguished cries of the American people, for his hearing is selective.

He is a grand poser, presenting himself as a servant of the people, when his true agenda is to bend the will of this great nation to his every whim, just because he is “The President of the United States of America.” This monumental arrogance of the man, is the hallmark and prerogative of the narcissist. Obama imagines himself the anointed Mahdi of the Muslim world, as he redefines America´s religious heritage and territorial integrity with pompous speeches.

Obama is transparent in his contempt for the American people, as he lectures them to upbraid, while dismissing them as addicted to guns, bibles and conspicuous consumption.

Now the great wisdom of the Founding Fathers becomes plain for all to see, as this nation can now perceive the direct impact of exactly what transpires when the blood and soil constitutional requirement for American birth–to be president– is dispensed with.

Obama´s supreme wish-fulfillment of transforming himself into the God-man is easily seen for all to behold, insofar as his delusions of grandeur make him imagine he is king and not subject to the laws of commoners, who are required to present proper credentials and identification. This attitude mirrors the larger arrogance of a rogue and degenerate Congress, which has abdicated the power to coin money and declare war.

These irresponsible “leaders” of the American people continue to point the finger of blame at their charges, labeling them “misguided.” And who are the guides?
The United States government has given the reins of power to the international bankers and in so doing, has committed the highest treason against the nation and the Founding Fathers.

Obama has become the law and in so doing, has finally appeared as a “transformational figure” of tyranny, who must be deposed from power, due to the voter registration fraud of ACORN and his obvious lack of credentials and protocol.

He has enabled the invasion of his own country, not only by the Third World power of Mexico, but also by his attempt to involve the United Nations in the sovereign affairs of this nation, as if it were already a vassal of the international bankers. Now the American people are witness to the grand spectacle of eleven countries of Central and South America “suing” Arizona for attempting to secure this nation´s borders, as if they had the right to meddle in internal American affairs, which they apparently do, with the direct sanction of a criminal regime in Washington.

A Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruling issued Oct, 11 allows these Latin American countries — Mexico, Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Peru and Chile — to submit friend-of-the-court briefs in the DOJ´s challenge to SB 1070, which Gov Jan Brewer of Arizona, signed into law in April and is considered one of the nation´s toughest immigration-enforcement measures.

“As do many citizens, I find it incredibly offensive that these foreign governments are using our court system to meddle in a domestic legal dispute and to oppose the rule of law,” the Republican governor said in a statement shortly after the state´s motion was filed the evening of Oct. 12.

Obama has reinstated the feudalist order, run by the oligarchs of the United Nations, to the supreme dissatisfaction of a deliberate and revolutionary people, who know that their “president” is a fifth column in the national house.

In short, this alleged president, is a man without a paper trail and so the American people do not know who he really is; they just know what he is and that realization comes to the fore as the knowledge that he is a direct threat to the national security and preeminence of the United States of America among nations.

Obama has pronounced himself a “Citizen of the World,” and thus he reveals through his warped weltanschauung, where his true allegiance lies. That allegiance belongs to the phony storefront of the international bankers; the United Nations. Obama pledges his allegiance to the U.N. in all matters, even those which pertain to domestic tranquility–meaning the Mexican crime wave, run rampant in Arizona.

The Great Imposer and Imposter is in truth a roper for the New World Order of the international bankers, who have occupied the government under a hostile corporate takeover, since the illegal establishment of the Federal Reserve in 1913.

Obama waltzed into office proclaiming a new Camelot and presenting himself as the “Black JFK” and heir to the mantle of Camelot, all rolled-into-one.

The black race to a large degree, imagined him to be its Black Moses, who would self-actualize the dreams, hopes and aspirations of an entire race, which had been historically disenfranchised. This black pharaoh not only failed to deliver his own race from bondage, but instead chose to drive all of the American people into further debt slavery to the international bankers of the Federal Reserve. He further appointed IRS agents to enter the healthcare realm.

“He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.”

Declaration of Independence

With these new offices came “Czars,” to rule them, according to Marxist fashion dictates.

Obama´s sense of self-entitlement did not compel him to stand and deliver for the American people the promise of John F. Kennedy´s Camelot. He claimed the title, without doing the actual hard work.

Like Madonna´s rock video “Vogue,” he struck a pose.

Obama claimed the mantle of the Kennedy mystique, but did not secure an executive order abolishing the Federal Reserve, which would have completed the great work of Our Fallen Captain, who lies at Arlington National Cemetery.

What is most remarkable at this juncture, is the fact that a military man with an impeccable service record, is putting his career on the line by facing courtmartial in a kangaroo court, for refusing to obey deployment orders from an obvious usurper.

Highly decorated Army surgeon, Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin has become the sacrificial lamb for the sins of the Obama regime, insofar as he now stands alone to challenge Obama´s eligibility to serve in the capacity of president, where numerous prior lawsuits against the regime have failed, due to Obama´s total control over all facets of government checks and balances.

Obama has actually attained the status of a dictator, which former President George W. Bush would only muse over in jest of fancy.

The question for the ages is: “Can the United States military ´handle the truth?´”

The only man who should be facing a military tribunal, is the one who now sits in the Oval Office. It is hoped that the United States military will coalesce around Lt. Col. Lakin–and the nation–to release the corporate stranglehold on our country, by deposing the usurper president from power by military coup.

The United States military must come forth as the spearhead of the Second American Revolution, to deliver the American people from bondage to usury at the hands of the Federal Reserve and to restore justice and rule of law to our republic. This great task requires a military occupation on Capitol Hill, to elicit regime change.

Only a criminal moron could so egregiously violate the public trust, the way Resident Obama has done. His spectacle of treason is breath-taking.

“A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.”

It's not just black Congressmen, but....

Corruption in Congress
The Black Caucus Wants to Stop Ethics Investigations




Did you know that the Black Caucus is 100% Democrats, that's right, all 43 members are DEMOCRATS. Black Caucus? Corruption? Democrats? Are we seeing a pattern here?

WE HAVE GOT TO GET THESE CORRUPT, SLIMY LEECHES OFF OUR BACKS!

The Black Caucus Wants to Stop Ethics Investigations

Twenty members of the Congressional Black Caucus, including its chairwoman, are asking the House to severely restrict the powers of an independent ethics office that has spent much of its first full year investigating accusations of wrongdoing among Black Caucus members.

As is far too common with black politicians, corruption and greed permeates the racist extortion racket called the Congressional Black Caucus.
Black Lawmakers want to Limit Ethics Investigations

More Transparency from Democrats

Senator Roland Burris (D-IL) - Lying Under Oath

The Senate Ethics Committee launched an investigation into Burris on February 17, 2009, for repeatedly altering his statements regarding his appointment to the Senate and his contacts with Gov. Blagojevich and the governor's associates. Burris was elevated to the Senate seat by the governor on December 30, 2008. When questions were raised about the appointment, Sen. Burris proclaimed, "I don't have any taint from Governor Blagojevich." Over the next several months, Burris offered at least three different explanations under oath of how he came to be appointed to the Senate.



Representative Charlie Rangel (D-NY) 'Most Corrupt Democrat'

Charlie Rangel (D-NY) Recently received the coveted "Most Corrupt Democrat" recognition by Human Events. Rangel got caught cheating on his taxes by under reporting his net worth. These issues and more are currently before the House Ethics Committee for investigation while Rangel continues to serve as Chairman of the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee. Rangel also made the Judicial Watch Ten Most Corrupt Politicians list. Rangel continues to present himself as a moral leader for the black community.



Representative Maxine Waters (D-CA) - Conflict of Interest

By using her position as a member of Congress to assist a bank in which her husband was a stockholder, Rep. Waters violated House conflict-of-interest rules and engaged in conduct that does not reflect creditably upon the House. Waters did not disclose her financial ties to OneUnited Bank to Treasury officials in her letters requesting meetings between regulators and bank officials. Treasury officials claimed that although OneUnited also requested a meeting with regulators regarding Fannie and Freddie Mac losses, it wasn't until Waters intervened that the Treasury approved a meeting.



Representative Jesse Jackson, Jr. (D-IL) - 'Political Corruption Crime Spree'

Jackson's ethics issue stems from his bid to be appointed to a vacant Illinois Senate seat and subsequently, the federal investigation of former-Governor Rod Blagojevich. In the affidavit supporting the arrest of Gov. Blagojevich, the governor is quoted stating he believed a particular candidate, later identified as Rep. Jackson, would "raise money" for him and that "he might get some [money] upfront." The governor also claimed an "emissary" from Rep. Jackson came to him and offered to raise a total of $1.5 million for his campaign should Rep. Jackson indeed be appointed to the vacant Senate seat.



Representative Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO) 'Voted to Retain Funding for ACORN'

Cleaver of Missouri's 5th District. Kansas City's congressman voted with 45 of his vacuous and corruption-prone colleagues to retain funding for the criminal enterprise, ACORN after the organization was exposed as encouraging tax fraud, prostitution, and sex trafficking of minors.. Emanuel Cleaver should be ashamed and the citizens of the 5th District should be outraged.



Representative James Clyburn (D-SC) 'Payments to his brother, Charles Clyburn'

House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn Believes the "Constitution Mandates" His Corrupt Behavior. In 2006 Congressman Clyburn set aside $145,000 for the Five Rivers Development Corp. Five Rivers paid $16,600 to Charles Clyburn, the brother of James Clyburn.



Representative Gregory Meeks (D-NY) 'Failure to disclose a $40,000 loan'

A loan Meeks took out from a Queens businessman to help pay for his $830,000 house has drawn FBI scrutiny. In January 2007, Meeks borrowed $40,000 from Queens businessman Ed Ahmad. He didn't make any payments on the loan until last month, after the FBI questioned Ahmad about the arrangement.



Representative Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-TX) 'Steered scholarships to relatives'

Johnson awarded eight scholarships to her grandsons and a top aide's children, bringing to 23 the number of awards she handed out since 2005 in violation of Congressional Black Caucus Foundation eligibility rules. "There should be outrage because there are probably students far more deserving and more needy of the funds."



Representative Sanford Bishop (D-GA) 'Awarded scholarships to relatives'

Melanie Sloan, director of the watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, said members of Congress shouldn't need rules to know that awarding scholarship money to their families is inappropriate. "Giving scholarships to your family is clearly wrong," Sloan said. "How could you not know better? All of their explanations and rationalizations ring hollow."



Representative Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) 'Strong-arming Lobbyists'

Eleanor Holmes Norton solicits funds from lobbyists in which she improperly notes their contributions to other committee members and hints at her power to give or deny favors.



Representative John Conyers (D-GA) 'Use of staff to baby-sit and chauffeur his children'

Representative John Conyers directed his staff to perform campaign activity on official time and in some instances used official resources, and that some staff members may have been compelled to do personal work, including baby-sitting and chauffeuring his children.


WHY DOES THE BLACK CAUCUS WANT TO STOP ETHICS INVESTIGATIONS?

Why are only black Congressmen shown here? Before you go hollering RACIST, they are shown here because it is the BLACK CAUCUS that made an issue of stopping the Ethics Committee. Believe it, there are also PLENTY of CORRUPT WHITE Congressmen, check the link below.

The Marxist Roots of Obama's Rage, Part Two

In a Washington Post op-ed based on his new book, The Roots of Obama’s Rage, Dinesh D’Souza argues against the notion that Obama is a socialist. “Some have described the president as being a conventional liberal or even a socialist,” he writes in the Post. “But liberals and socialists are typically focused on poverty and social equality; Obama rarely addresses these issues, and when he does so, it is without passion.”

But D’Souza, president of The King’s College, a Christian institution, acknowledges that Obama’s signature legislation, introduced when he was a senator, was the Global Poverty Act, which argued for the transfer of hundreds of billions of dollars from the U.S. to the rest of the world through the United Nations. He cites my research on this controversial piece of legislation in a footnote.

In order to collect the money, Marxists like Fidel Castro have long argued for a global tax. Obama endorsed consideration of that approach at the recent U.N. meeting.

Yet D’Souza contends that the Global Poverty Act reflects the “anti-colonial paradigm” and not a Marxist view about transferring the wealth. He contends that “Anti-colonialism is the idea that the rich countries got rich by looting the poor countries…”

What D’Souza fails to grasp is that “anti-colonialism” was a tactic of the communists, in order to discredit the United States and other Western powers. Obama’s mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, was a member of the Communist Party USA.

Davis Speaks

In the last known recorded interview with Davis, available at Washington University in St. Louis, he openly discusses his relationships with Paul Robeson and Harry Bridges, without of course disclosing their communist affiliations. He says he knew Bridges and Robeson and that Robeson urged him to go to Hawaii. In the interview Davis also ridicules one of the congressional committees that tried to get him under oath to discuss his involvement in the CPUSA. It had treated him as a “hostile” witness.

Since Davis is dead and Obama won’t speak the truth about him, Paul Kengor’s book Dupes notes that one of the important issues is “defining” the Davis influence over Obama. It is clear, from Obama’s own book, that Davis functioned as a mentor in some regard. “I was intrigued by old Frank,” Obama wrote, “with his books and whiskey breath and hint of hard-earned knowledge behind the hooded eyes.” He said Davis gave him advice on life and college.

Avoiding Scrutiny

All of this should have been reviewed by the FBI. But the loophole in our system is that a candidate for elected federal office, such as the presidency, can avoid a background check by law enforcement authorities. On the other hand, employees who work for the president are supposed to undergo background checks.

Former FBI agent Max Noel has said that the Bureau used to conduct background investigations by analyzing the factors enveloped under the acronym CARL—for Character, Associates, Reputation, and Loyalties.

How would Obama have fared under such scrutiny? On the matter of associates alone, the relationship with Frank Marshall Davis would have been a major red flag. Obama’s dealings with former communist terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn would also have surfaced in such an inquiry.


Whitewashing a Communist

However, D’Sousa goes astray here as well, contending that Obama viewed himself and Ayers as “anti-colonial warriors.” He asserts that Ayers opposed the Vietnam War because he viewed North Vietnamese leader Ho Chi Minh as an anti-colonialist, not a communist. “For Ho and Bill,” D’Souza writes, “this was an anti-colonial struggle.” In fact, Ayers and Dohrn wrote a book dedicated in part to the assassin of anti-war candidate Robert F. Kennedy, demonstrating that their interest in Vietnam was not a withdrawal of U.S. forces and the termination of colonial influences but bringing the country—and the region—into the communist camp.

Ayers and Dohrn were not “anti-colonialists” but hard-core Communists who would come into Obama’s life in Chicago, after Obama had already been under the influence of Davis for eight years.

“Sure, there are radical elements associated with him [Obama],” D’Souza says, “but quite possibly they are his pawns.” This statement turns Obama’s life story on its head, implying that the communists involved in his life from his very early years are somehow his “dupes,” of a person they influenced or manipulated.

It bears repeating: a young Obama didn’t use Davis; Davis used him. That is why Obama covered up the relationship, referring to Davis as just “Frank” in his memoir, Dreams from My Father. The rest is history that continues to unfold before our eyes. It is not the story of someone being influenced by anti-colonialism but by a hard-core member of the CPUSA.

The advantage of accusing Obama of being an anti-colonialist, rather than Marxist, is that it enables D’Souza to avoid the sensitive question of whether Obama is loyal to the United States or subservient to a foreign and alien ideology that envisions the transformation of the U.S. into what the CPUSA openly called “Soviet America.” D’Souza writes defensively, “I am not suggesting that Obama is anti-American.”

But his defensive stance hasn’t spared him any criticism from pro-Obama advocates. It is as if Obama’s defenders want to attack this book so that the more substantial and accurate allegations, found in Kengor’s well-documented book, can be dismissed in advance.

The Kengor book provides the documentary evidence that the Obama Administration and the progressives cannot refute and which lays the groundwork for further investigation into the communist networks in Hawaii and Chicago that cultivated Obama and sponsored his political career. Trevor Loudon, who broke the Frank Marshall Davis story, is continuing to do some of this work through his KeyWiki website.

Kengor’s recent article on official CPUSA involvement in the October 2 “One Nation Working Together” rally functions as a postscript, alerting us to the ominous nature of the progressive-communist alliance that openly supports the Obama presidency. It is shocking that a political party that received Soviet funding and direction, and which committed espionage on behalf of the old Soviet Union, should be elevated to such status in an event that received the backing of Obama’s political organization and the giant labor federation, the AFL-CIO.

We covered the event, filming and documenting the involvement of the CPUSA and numerous other communist and socialist groups.

Is the FBI Watching?

Davis had been on the FBI’s “security index,” meaning that he was such a potentially dangerous individual that he could have been detained in the event of a national emergency. FBI agents who had monitored his activities suspected him of possible espionage, based on his extensive photographing of the Hawaiian coast. Hawaii was and is a strategic asset to the U.S.

Davis also used his camera for other purposes, as the archives at Washington University attest. Several of his photographs are of nude women. Davis had written a pornographic novel that described sexual practices, including pedophilia. That the novel was based, at least in part, on Davis’s own experiences, is also troubling.

Now, Davis’s student, Barack Obama, described by Kengor as Davis’s “star pupil,” occupies the oval office, where he is in charge of the national security apparatus and in possession of highly sensitive and classified intelligence information which, in the wrong hands, could threaten the survival of the United States.

But if former agents of the FBI recognize the danger, one must assume or hope that current officials in the bureau see it as well. It remains to be seen what they will do about it.

November 2010 is almost here!

Obama will not moderate after November
By Chris Adamo

With three weeks yet to go before the 2010 mid-term elections, grassroots energy and polling data already portend a massive sea-change in the political landscape. The conservative base is eager to reassert itself. This is a striking contrast to 2006 when a weary and disenfranchised heartland America abandoned the GOP after a dozen years of Republican compromise and capitulation, leaving the nation in the hands of Harry Reid (D.-NV), Nancy Pelosi (D.-CA), and eventually Barack Obama.

Somehow, the political class misconstrued the real message being sent to Washington. Refusing to acknowledge voter disgust and anger over Republican unwillingness to confront the profligate spending and nanny-state meddling of a bloated federal government, Democrats who were essentially elected by default instead found it more beneficial to claim that the nation had embraced their unfettered liberalism. So in the wake of the 2006 and 2008 elections, leftists presumed that they had cart blanche to recreate the nation in their ultra-liberal image. And America's disastrous economic decline, collapsing societal infrastructure, and evaporating liberties stand as a testament to the vigor with which the Democrats pursued their efforts.

Distressed citizens from across America vainly attempted to communicate their concerns to Washington, only to be ignored, mocked and disparaged in response. Now they are ready to institute the course correction that is so desperately needed. This they intend to accomplish by brooming as many arrogant liberal Democrats as possible from the halls of Congress come Election Day, and replacing them with fresh faces who are not nearly so intellectually and emotionally isolated from the realities of American life as the current crop of dispassionate leftists.

The conservative punditry is already busy sizing up the situation, and offering advice as to how to proceed post-election. Some political analysts are predicting that in the aftermath of an electoral bloodbath Democrats, including Obama, will see the light, recognize the errors of their ways, and sincerely moderate their governing agenda and tactics. However, expecting such a reaction from this governing cabal is not only naive, it increases the effectiveness of artful maneuverings by the leftists, which they will undoubtedly attempt in hopes of better positioning themselves for a rebound in 2012.

A sober look the actions of liberal Democrats, during previous periods when they were out of power should convince astute observers of the necessity to prepare for any contingency except a sudden reversion to civility and reason while legislating and governing. Honor, virtue, and decency were not the means by which these individuals ever achieved political dominance, and they certainly will not resort to such trite conduct as they attempt to rebuild their governing machine. Rather, all former experience attests to the unscrupulous political brutality that was a much more effective and successful means of neutralizing their conservative adversaries. And this is particularly true in light of the burgeoning extremism of the modern Democrat Party.

The last time the nation experienced a profound rightward power shift in Washington was not during the 2000 presidential election, but six years prior in 1994. Then, the nearly unprecedented gain of fifty-four seats in the House, along with eight seats in the Senate, seemed to portend a decisive halt of the Clinton agenda, which had ensued during the previous two years at breakneck speed, threatening the fabric of the nation with Hillarycare, stifling tax increases, and a methodical unraveling of the justice system under the headship of then Attorney General Janet Reno.

With the speakership of the House of Representatives transferred overnight to Republican Newt Gingrich from Democrat Tom Foley (who did not even remain as a member of that chamber, having lost his own congressional race), and the Republican majority in the Senate, it initially appeared that the onslaught of Clintonian liberalism would be supplanted by the inspiring tenets of the "Contract with America." Sadly, this conservative momentum was thoroughly neutralized by the relentless daily attacks from liberals in Congress and on the nightly news.

Worthy plans to abolish bloated federal agencies and curtail the encroaching socialism of recent decades ran abruptly into a propaganda blitz that portrayed such efforts as draconian and heartless. Initially, Republicans responded by retreating from the scope of their grand plan, and offering instead the insipid alternative of federal "block grants" to states, whereby the socialist programs could continue, but ostensibly with greater efficiency. In the end, even this meager effort to stem the hemorrhage of funds to inefficient and wasteful statist programs was abandoned by the Republicans, allowing Bill Clinton to claim the political and moral "high ground," thus ensuring his reelection in 1996.

The pattern was repeated, with increased intensity, after the chaos of the 2000 presidential election debacle. Rather than asserting his constitutional legitimacy as President, George W. Bush refused to wield his authority against those entities that had demeaned and undermined this nation for the previous eight years. Having barely clung to his Electoral College victory, and admittedly losing the popular vote, he embarked on a futile quest to establish a "new tone" in Washington. Through indefensible and unwarranted conciliation and capitulation he ultimately empowered and enabled the forces that coalesced in 2008 as the most radical, anti-American, anti-constitutional government this nation has ever seen.

This, in the end, is the Republican Party that Obama and his minions perceive and recognize as their opposition. The reality of grassroots activism on the right, via the "Tea Party" movement of the past eighteen months, simply does not register among the liberal elitists inside the Beltway, other than as a fleeting squall from a restless but otherwise insignificant peasantry. And unfortunately, Obama's Democrats are not alone in this arrogant view. Many GOP insiders believe likewise.

So it is all but guaranteed that Barack Obama will respond to a sizable shift in the makeup of the House and Senate by forcing his issues, and daring the new Congress to oppose him and face a significant escalation of the attacks from his media accomplices. The ploy has worked extremely well in the past.

However, the energy and commitment of the movement he so casually dismisses derives from a people who understand not only the riches of liberty and heritage with which they were endowed, but more importantly the catastrophic attacks against such things that have occurred in recent years, and the perils to the very future of the nation represented by such. An electoral tidal wave in 2010 will not be the end of this epic struggle, but only the beginning of the battle for America. The people of the heartland are energized and committed to this fight. It is high time that the GOP insiders decide, once and for all, whose side they will take.

Half-black, half-white half-wit

Posted: October 13, 2010
1:00 am Eastern

© 2010

I knew it was only a matter of time before Obama pulled out the race card. In a recent speech he gave in Philadelphia regarding the upcoming elections, the president said, "They're counting on young people staying home and union members staying home and black folks staying home." Why does he have to bring race into it? What does being black have to do with the Republican vote? I guess he doesn't know that not all African-Americans are liberal. What a racist.

The only group Republicans wish would stay home is the dumb group. I don't care what color you are or what your age is, or if you're a union worker. If you're dumb … just stay home. Let me define "dumb." If you go into that voting booth completely unaware of what you're voting for, that's dumb. If you pick something because it's "popular" or just a random pick, that's dumb too. Stay home. Just because you have the right to vote doesn't mean you should. You shouldn't be voting unless you actually care enough to do the research.

It's obvious by Obama's words that he thinks all "black folks" agree with his message. That is a terribly racist assumption to make, and he should be called out for that.

If a white president said, "They're counting on white folks to stay home" people would have flipped, especially Obama's cronies. Everyone would have made a federal case about it. Why is it OK for Obama to speak like this, but not anyone else? No one should count on an entire race for voting security. We are individuals bonded by common traits. We are all capable of being in whatever party we decide is best regardless of our skin color. Did I vote for Mitt Romney because he is white? Absolutely not. I voted for him because I agreed with a majority of his policies and I truly felt like he was the best candidate.

Erik Rush's new book is bold, daring and needed: "Negrophilia: From Slave Block to Pedestal - America's Racial Obsession"

I don't have to use my race – or gender, for that matter – as a crutch through life like most liberals do. I have a mind of my own, and I understand it is wrong to vote for someone based on his or her gender and race. I would never count on "black folks" to stay home on voting day, because I understand each person has an opinion regardless of race. I don't think Obama understands that.

It doesn't take a genius to see what's really going on. Obama thinks that because he is half African-American, that means all African-Americans should vote for his friends. How is that not racist? He knows that he can get away with racist remarks because he has the menacing Rev. Sharpton and a slew of other flower-power misfits to back him up. As long as the racist remarks didn't come from a white person, don't worry about it.

The more important thing to note is this: Democrats need to count on Republicans staying home. Not "white people" and "black folks." We have watched this country disintegrate before our very eyes, not because we have a half-black, half-white president, but because we have a half-wit president running the country. His hair may have turned ten shades of gray over the past two years, but that doesn't mean he's any more the wiser since he began this journey. We need representatives who have a moral code and who will stick up for us, not apologize for us.

I cannot stress how important these upcoming elections are. If we are ever going to redeem ourselves, now is the time. Obama will be helpless without his Power Rangers in Congress. My dose of honesty: We have to let our representatives know that the time for threats is over. They have failed us, and it is time to move on. Thank you for playing, but you're out with yesterday's garbage. It's time for us to take back this country. We don't need universal health care; we don't need spineless leaders; and we don't need a president who thinks all "black folks" vote the same way. As for Obama, just keep telling yourself, "It's only two years away. It's only two years away." It'll be here before you know it.

Is Obama's Position on Religious Freedom 'Mosque, Yes; Cross, No?'

By Margaret Calhoun Hemenway
It would be unimaginable for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) to pursue the removal of thousands of crosses in Arlington National Cemetery, situated so near the seat of the federal government in the nation's capital and where so many of America's veterans and honored heroes are laid to rest. Likewise, it would be seemingly unthinkable for the ACLU to try to sue to eliminate the Senate and House chaplains (both of whom are of the Christian faith), who, in accordance with longstanding tradition, open with a prayer the upper and lower chambers each day that Congress is in session.

But like the predatory wolf that searches for the lamb at the outskirts of the flock, the ACLU targeted a lone cross -- a war memorial -- in California's Mojave Desert, off a desolate highway, perhaps believing it to be an easy target for removal. The ACLU was mistaken. For ten years, a battle has been waged to preserve this solitary Latin cross, first erected in 1934 to honor World War I veterans. In fact, the Mojave Desert War Memorial is our nation's sole congressionally designated World War I memorial.

A former National Park Service (NPS) official (who now lives in the State of Oregon) objected to the cross memorial and enlisted the ACLU to sue to remove it. The justification was the ACLU's flawed premise that the Establishment Clause of the Constitution prohibits religious symbols on public property. The Establishment Clause was meant only to protect against the creation of a state religion, such as the Church of England, but freedom of religion and free religious exercise were among the main reasons early settlers came to America -- and thus, the protection of those freedoms is enshrined in the First Amendment.

Congress became engaged in the dispute, and a land-swap was arranged so that the cross could be on private rather than public land. The ACLU still objected due to its apparent hostility to crosses -- to symbols of Christianity -- that seems to go far beyond just its pretext of objections to religious symbols placed on public property. When the fight over the cross was appealed, the cross, shamefully, was covered by a box of plywood at the directive of a federal judge.

On April 28, 2010, the Supreme Court reviewed the case, Salazar v. Buono, and ruled in favor of the memorial's supporters. The high court reversed the Court of Appeals, which had invalidated Congress's land swap arrangement to preserve the Mojave memorial cross, and SCOTUS remanded the case for further proceedings.

Then, on Sunday, May 9, the cross memorial was dragged off its high ridge by thieves using bolt cutters -- an act that constituted a felony crime. The Congress, in a recent unanimous vote, condemned this theft as a "repulsive act" and an insult to the brave men and women in the Armed Forces who gave their lives to defend America. It also called upon the National Park Service to work to recover the cross.

As yet, the Park Service has not found the perpetrators. A replica was installed in place of the purloined cross and quickly was dismantled by the Park Service, which insists that the original cross is the only one that can be erected. The stolen cross, however, was not the original 1934 cross, so the NPS's insistence that only the stolen cross can be erected lacks any rationale.

In mid-June, veterans groups representing 23 million American veterans wrote to President Obama, urging him to direct the National Park Service to return the cross to its resting place in accordance with the Supreme Court's ruling. The letter was never answered, but a recent open letter signed by many prominent Americans and distinguished veterans has renewed the demand to resurrect the cross.

Yet in August, as the Mojave Desert cross supporters surely noticed, President Obama jumped into the heated fray over the controversy of a mosque to be built at Ground Zero in New York City. He said that Americans should support this mosque because of our belief in freedom of religion. As reported by the AP, Obama proclaimed, "This is America, and our commitment to religious freedom must be unshakeable." The mosque would be situated on private property -- exactly the long-term solution envisioned by Congress to protect the Mojave Desert Cross memorial. Why is Mr. Obama silent on the Mojave War Memorial cross when he is happy to proclaim in an internationally televised speech his support of a controversial mosque that many would identify by the choice of locale with the slaughter of nearly three thousand Americans?

It is nothing short of astonishingly politically inept for Obama to snub organizations representing millions of American veterans and decline to respond to their appeal for his intervention on behalf of the only congressionally designated World War I memorial. Obama has the authority today, as head of the Executive Branch and Commander-in-Chief, to direct a recalcitrant National Park Service to restore a replica of the stolen war memorial cross in accordance with the Supreme Court's ruling. If he believes in the exercise of free religion as a constitutional right of all Americans, and that official monuments and tributes to America's war dead deserve protection, he will surely gladly intervene immediately on behalf of the cross memorial.

America's veterans -- men and women who for generations have defended the civil liberties of this great nation -- are asking Mr. Obama to restore this cross to its desert home. Will he answer their plea, or will he, by his silence, make them believe that his policy on religious freedom favors mosques over crosses?

'You could be on 'the list' and then child protective services might come'

Johnathon Irish, fiancé and baby

A 16-hour-old newborn was snatched from her parents by authorities in Concord, N.H., after social services workers alleged the father is a member of Oath Keepers.

The organization collects affirmations from soldiers and peace officers that they would refuse orders that violate the U.S. Constitution, in light of what they perceive as the advance of socialism in the U.S.

The father, Johnathon Irish, told WND that the affidavit signed by Child Protective Service worker Dana Bicford seeking government custody of newborn Cheyenne said the agency "became aware and confirmed that Mr. Irish associated with a militia known as the 'Oath Keepers.'"

Irish, in an interview with WND, said officers and other social services workers ordered him to stand with his hands behind his back, frisked him and then took his daughter from him and his fiancé at Concord Hospital where the baby had been born.

He told WND that other issues cited by authorities included an allegation of child abuse, which he assumed pertained to an incident weeks earlier in which one of his fiance's older sons allegedly was struck by a babysitter.

(Story continues below)



He said both he and his fiancé had been cleared by authorities in that investigation.

Kathleen Demaris, a spokeswoman for the state agency, refused to comment.

Stewart Rhodes, the founder of Oath Keepers, expressed alarm when contacted by WND, describing the agency as a "chilling monster" that could "come get kids."

On his website, he confirmed the affidavit, along with other allegations, cites Irish's interest in Oath Keepers as a reason to separate the newborn from her parents.

"Yes, there are other, very serious allegations. Out of respect for the privacy of the parents, we will not publish the affidavit. … But please do remember that allegations do not equal facts – they are merely allegations," he said.

"But an even more fundamental point is that regardless of the other allegations, it is utterly unconstitutional for government agencies to list Mr. Irish's association with Oath Keepers in an affidavit in support of a child abuse order to remove his daughter from his custody," Rhodes said.

"Talk about chilling speech! If this is allowed to continue, it will chill the speech of not just Mr. Irish, but all Oath Keepers and it will serve as the camel [nose] under the tent for other associations being considered too risky for parents to dare," he continued. "'Don't you dare associate with such and such group, or you could be on 'the list' and then child protective services might come take your kids.'"

He noted that the state made no allegation that Oath Keepers is "criminal" or that Irish was committing a crime with his affiliation.

Oath Keepers posted a video by George Heminger, who identifies himself as an independent journalist, who was interviewing Irish by telephone:

Editor's Note: The recording is unedited and includes objectionable language.

"We are not advocating or planning imminent violence, which is the established line where free speech ends and criminal behavior begins," Rhodes continued said. "Neither is Oath Keepers a militia, for that matter. However, EVEN IF WE WERE, that also would not be a valid reason to take someone's child away. Private militias just like other voluntary associations, are not illegal, and it is not a crime to associate with them.

"To the contrary, we have an absolute right, won by the blood of patriots, and protected by our First Amendment, to freely associate with each other as we d--- well please so long as we are not advocating or planning imminent violent or directly harming our children (and no, teaching them 'thought crimes' like 'All men are created equal and are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights,' or that those who swear an oath should keep it, does not count – at least not yet)," he said.

"A parent associating with a militia is not engaged in child endangerment and is not evidence of child endangerment," he said.

A promise

Oath Keepers' members promise not to obey any order "to disarm the American people," conduct warrantless searches, "detain American citizens as 'unlawful enemy combatants,'" work to impose martial law, invade or subjugate any state, blockade American cities, put Americans in detention camps or "make war against our own people."

That such circumstances could develop has been suggested by the government itself, in an earlier DHS document that cautioned about the possibility of violence from a variety of "extremists," a label that apparently now is being applied to Irish.

WND reported when a Department of Homeland Security report warned against the possibility of violence by unnamed "right-wing extremists" and singled out returning war veterans as particular threats. The report characterized the extremists as people with concerns about illegal immigration, increasing federal power, restrictions on firearms, abortion and the loss of U.S. sovereignty.

The report, "Right-wing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment," dated April 7, 2009, stated "threats from white supremacist and violent anti-government groups during 2009 have been largely rhetorical and have not indicated plans to carry out violent acts."

However, the document, first reported by talk-radio host and WND columnist Roger Hedgecock, went on to suggest worsening economic woes, potential new legislative restrictions on firearms and "the return of military veterans facing significant challenges reintegrating into their communities could lead to the potential emergence of terrorist groups or lone wolf extremists capable of carrying out violent attacks."

The report from DHS' Office of Intelligence and Analysis defined right-wing extremism in the U.S. as "divided into those groups, movements and adherents that are primarily hate-oriented (based on hatred of particular religious, racial or ethnic groups) and those that are mainly anti-government, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely. It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration."

Returning veterans

Most notable was the report's focus on the impact of returning war veterans.

"Returning veterans possess combat skills and experience that are attractive to right-wing extremists," it said. "DHS/I&A is concerned that right-wing extremists will attempt to recruit and radicalize veterans in order to boost their violent capacities."

In the Irish family situation, the father told WND that a court hearing is schedule Oct. 14. Until that time, he and his fiancé are ordered to have no contact with their daughter.

He described the state's accusations as "false allegations, fabricated allegations and unfounded fact."

Forum page participants at the Oath Keepers site were enraged:

* "Make sure you tell this to everyone you know, if this is allowed, none of us with children are safe, is says the govt can take your children because of your affiliations with certain organizations!!"

* "This is so scary!!! If they can do this, what next?"

* "Be careful with this. The Republic has real enemies and some of them spend all their time sitting in their mom's basement thinking of ways to get us to overreact and make mistakes by which they can discredit us. This could be real, or it could be deliberate a disinformation tactic, a hard count to draw us offsides. Wait for full verification and full story details before doing anything we all might later regret," suggested another.

* "Setting a chilling precedent and in a manner befitting the most tyrannical of regimes, the government seized a newborn baby girl today because the father has associated with the lawful, pro-peace, pro-constitution, anti-violence Oath Keepers. What makes this particularly scary is exactly that, that the 'Oath Keepers' is a peaceful, pro-rule of law organization which supports serving military, veterans, peace officers, and firefighters and reminds them of their oath to the Constitution of the United States in a direct and open manner."

Said Rhodes, "Now it is TIME TO PUSH BACK – peaceably, of course, using our voices and pens. Let the officials in question know that you strongly oppose their listing of an association with Oath Keepers as one of the reasons for taking this child. Let them know you insist that they remove that 'reason' from the affidavit and issue a public retraction, and until they do so, they will hear from all of us, and also from our legal counsel. And we won't relent until they respect our First Amendment protected rights of free speech and association and cease and desist this chilling of those rights. Be professional, but firm."

The 15 Timeless Secrets of Happy People

How we achieve happiness can be different for each one of us. Our passions, expectations, life experiences, and even our personalities all contribute to the level of happiness we experience in our lives. Some people find happiness in their careers while others prefer the bliss found in their marriages or other intimate relationships.

No matter how you define happiness for yourself, there are certain universal and time-proven strategies to bring, and sustain, more happiness into your life. These 15 timeless secrets of happy people can be adapted and even customized to fit your needs. Over time, these strategies will become positive and life-changing habits that will begin to bring more happiness, joy and peace into your life.

1. Notice What’s Right
Some of us see the glass as being half-full, while others see the glass as half-empty. The next time you are caught in traffic, begin thinking how nice it is to have a few moments to reflect on the day, focus on a problem you have been trying to solve, or brainstorm on your next big idea. The next time you get in the slow line at the grocery store, take the opportunity to pick up a tabloid magazine and do some “guilty pleasure” reading. Take all that life throws out you and reframe it with what’s right about the situation. At the end of the day, you will be more content, at peace and be happy. Take the time to begin to notice what’s right and see the world change.

2. Show Gratitude
How many times do you say the words “thank you,” in a day? How many times do you hear these same words? If you are doing the first thing, saying the “thank yous,” the latter will naturally happen. Learn to be grateful and you will be open to receive an abundance of joy and happiness.

3. Remember the Kid You Were
Do you remember how to play? I’m not referring to playing a round of golf or a set of tennis. I’m talking about playing like you did when you were a child – a game of tag, leap frog, or street baseball when the bat is a broken broom handle and the bases are the parked cars. One way to find or maintain your happiness is to remember the kid you were and play!

4. Be Kind
There is no question that by merely watching acts of kindness creates a significant elevation in our moods and increases the desire for us to perform good deeds as well. Kindness is indeed contagious and when we make a commitment to be kind to ourselves and to others we can experience new heights of joy, happiness and enthusiasm for our lives.

5. Spend Time with Your Friends
Although an abundant social and romantic life does not itself guarantee joy, it does have a huge impact on our happiness. Learn to spend time with your friends and make the friendships a priority in your life.

6. Savor Every Moment
To be in the moment is to live in the moment. Too often we are thinking ahead or looking ahead to the next event or circumstance in our lives, not appreciating the “here and now.” When we savor every moment, we are savoring the happiness in our lives.

7. Rest
There are times when we need the time to unwind, decompress, or to put it simply, just “to chill.” Life comes at all of us hard and fast. Time, as do the days on the calendar, keeps going forward at its own natural pace, which is not always the pace we would choose. Fatigue, stress and exhaustion may begin to settle in on us faster than we may think, or notice. The best remedy for this is indeed rest.

8. Move!
The expression a “runner’s high” does not infer an addiction, but a feeling or a state of mind - a state of euphoria. There is no question exercise, or any physical exertion, elevates your mood and enhances a more positive attitude as well as fosters better personal self-esteem and confidence. Indeed, one way to increase your happiness is to move!

9. Put on a Happy Face
Sometimes we have to fake it until we make it. I’m not suggesting that we not be honest, real or authentic, but I’m suggesting, sometimes, we just need to put on a happy face and keep moving forward. Researchers claim that smiling and looking like we are happy will indeed make us happier. Studies further show that if we act like we are happy then we can experience greater joy and happiness in our lives.

10. Pursue Your Goals
The absence of goals in our lives, or more specifically avoiding to pursue our goals, makes us feel like we are stuck and ineffective. The pursuit of goals in our personal lives, in our relationships, or with our careers, is the difference between having a mediocre life or a life full of passion and enthusiasm. Pursue your goals and watch your happiness soar.

11. Find Your Calling
Some find meaning in religion or spirituality while others find purpose in their work or relationships. Finding your calling may be much more than accomplishing one simple strategy for increasing your happiness, but having a sense of purpose – of feeling like you are here for a reason – can perhaps bring the greatest joy of all.

12. Get into the Flow
Flow is the form of joy, excitement and happiness that occurs when we are so absorbed in an activity we love that we can lose ourselves and time seems to stand still. What creates flow is unique to each one of us. To find and sustain true happiness in our lives, we must get off the sidelines and get into the flow.

13. Play to Your Strengths
One way to achieve flow is by understanding and identifying our strengths and core values, and then begin to use these every day. Once we aware of our strengths and we begin to play to your strengths we can better incorporate them in all aspects of our lives.

14. Don’t Overdo It
Know when to say when. What gives you joy and happiness the first time may not work the second time. Too much of a good thing may begin not to feel as good if the “thing” becomes more of a routine, or an expectation. Set healthy and reasonable boundaries for yourself and don’t overdo it.

15. Appreciate What You Have
Want exactly what you have and know that what you have can be taken away in the blink of an eye. Hold on to it, treasure it, and let it cover you with love, comfort and happiness.

Marx vs Obama

Compare and Contrast: Karl Marx' 10 Point Program of Communism and the Obama-Pelosi-Reid Agenda

According to Karl Marx, the following ten elements were requisite conditions for "a transition from capitalism to communism."

1. Abolition of property in land and application of all rents of land to public purposes. Washington Examiner: The great Obama land grab: "White House officials have been meeting quietly with environmental groups to map out government plans for acquiring untold millions of acres of both public and private land... The federal government, as the memo boasted, is the nation's 'largest land manager.' It already owns roughly one of every three acres in the United States... This is apparently not enough."

2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax. National Taxpayer Union: The top 1% of taxpayers already pay 40% of all income taxes. The top 5% pay 61% of all income taxes. And the top 25% pay 87%. The bottom 50% pay 3% of all income taxes.

3. Abolition of all right of inheritance. USA Today: "Estate tax to return in 2011, and it could hurt ordinary folks."

4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants [those leaving the country] and rebels. New York Post: The President's new jobs-killer: "...President Obama explicitly targeted the industry for two massive tax hikes. First, he'd ban oil and gas companies from using the 'Section 199' tax credit, a measure for domestic manufacturers enacted in 2004 to boost US employment... Second, he wants to end 'dual capacity' protection for US energy firms... Without this shield against double taxation on foreign revenues, American companies would be competing on an uneven global playing field... Yet, by the federal government's own economic model, these tax hikes would lead to huge, immediate job losses."

5. Centralisation of credit in the hands of the State, by means of a national bank with State capital and an exclusive monopoly. New York Post: Democrats, Fannie Mae still issuing subprime loans, even after meltdown. And CNS News: Obama to Nationalize Student Lending with Pending Budget Bill.

6. Centralisation of the means of communication and transport in the hands of the State. Tom's Hardware: "Bill Allows Obama Power to Shut Down Internet." And "Advertisers on talk radio targeted by Congressional investigations." And "In an exclusive interview with Rolling Stone Magazine, President Obama made the extraordinary claim that Fox News is 'destructive to [America's] long-term growth.'."

7. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the State; the bringing into cultivation of waste-lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan. National Legal and Policy Center: "Obama Arranges Takeover of GM and Chrysler; Auto Workers Union Gets Huge Stake." And Discover: "New EPA Rules Clamp Down on Mountaintop Removal Coal Mining." And News 9 Oklahoma: "EPA to Crack Down on Farm Dust."

8. Equal liability of all to labour. Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture. Wall Street Journal: "SEIU’s Stern Tops White House Visitor List." And The Blaze: "Obama’s OFA, Churches Join Democratic Socialists for Saturday March in Washington."

9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of the distinction between town and country, by a more equitable distribution of the population over the country. Heritage: "The Clean Water Restoration Act Means Troubled Waters For Property Owners": "...The Waxman-Markey global warming bill is far and away the most worrisome environmental measure currently working its way through Congress, but it is certainly not the only cause for concern... S. 787, the Clean Water Restoration Act (CWRA)... would do much more harm than good, especially for farmers, ranchers, developers, energy producers, and other property owners."

10. Free education for all children in public schools. Abolition of children's factory labour in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production.: New York Sun: "Obama Tells Teachers Union He Opposes Vouchers." And Big Hollywood: "[Teachers' Union] NEA: Obama’s Ministry of Propaganda."

No federal government has damaged the American free market more than this one. No federal government has stolen more employment, more freedom, more private property -- from this and future generations -- than this one. No government has created more regulations, more unconstitutional dictates, more -- dare I say it -- slavery than this one.

Now, given all of these facts: can there be any doubt what Barack Obama meant when he twice proposed, "a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded" as our military?

The Obama-Democrat Left has mounted the first successful counter-revolution -- against the American Revolution -- in our history. Using an incessant series of attacks by a fifth column, the intent of the counter-revolution is to eradicate the effects of the American Revolution. The most magnificent society ever created hangs in the balance.


The midterm elections in November represent our last chance to salvage the American experiment.

Marshal your parents, your children, your siblings, your neighbors, your coworkers -- marshal everyone you know, because the stakes could not be higher.
