Obama bro: Dad was wife-beater!
President's brother discloses details that may shed light into mysterious relationship

Ann Dunham and Barack Obama Jr.

TEL AVIV – President Obama's father was abusive and hit at least one of his American wives, Obama's half-brother claimed at a press conference in China today.

The relationship Barack Obama Sr. had with his third wife might shed some light into the mysterious relationship between Obama's mother, Ann Dunham, and Barack Obama Sr. It also may provide some background into why Dunham sought a divorce from Obama Sr., although there is no record of their marriage.

Mark Okoth Obama Ndesandjo – who had the same father as the U.S. president – spoke to reporters as part of the launch of a novel he says draws on his painful childhood under an abusive father.

Ndesandjo's mother, Ruth, was an American. She was the third wife of Obama Sr. Ruth followed Obama Sr. to Kenya when he returned there after studying at Harvard in 1965. She eventually had two children with him before they divorced.

Ndesandjo's new book, "Nairobi to Shenzhen," was released as a fictional account, but he said it started off nearly 10 years ago as an autobiography and "reflects many experiences in my own life as a child brought up in Kenya," including a troubled relationship with his father.

See the movie Obama does not want you to see! Order the DVD that probes this unprecedented presidential mystery!

"My mother used to say of my father, he's a brilliant man but a social failure," Ndesandjo said, speaking at the press conference in China two weeks before Obama is scheduled to visit that country.

Ndesandjo currently resides in China.

In Iowa, Second Thoughts on Obama

WILLIAMSBURG, Iowa — Pauline McAreavy voted for President Obama. From the moment she first saw him two years ago, she was smitten by his speeches and sold on his promise of change. She switched parties to support him in the Iowa caucuses, donated money and opened her home to a pair of young campaign workers.

But by the time she received a fund-raising letter last month from the Democratic National Committee, a sense of disappointment had set in. She returned the solicitation with a handwritten note, saying, “Until I see some progress and he lives up to his promises in Iowa, we will not give one penny.”

“I’m afraid I wasn’t realistic,” Ms. McAreavy, 76, a retired school nurse, said on a recent morning on the deck of her home here in east-central Iowa.

“I really thought there would be immediate change,” she said. “Sometimes the Republicans are just as bad as Democrats. But it’s politics as usual, and that’s what I voted against.”

A federal judge in California today listened to government lawyers argue that a lawsuit over President Obama's eligibility should be immediately dismissed but refused to grant their request, saying he would make his decision and announce it later.

The result came this morning from U.S. District Judge David Carter, who already has set a tentative trial date for the dispute Jan. 26, 2010.  The judge also already had lawyers draw up a tentative schedule for hearings and deadlines in preparation for the trial.

WND previously reported on plans for the hearing handled by attorneys Orly Taitz and Gary Kreep, each representing separate clients.

The lawsuit was brought by several political candidates and party officials, including former U.S. ambassador Alan Keyes and Wiley Drake and Markham Robinson of the American Independent Party.

They are suing Obama alleging he is not eligible to be president under the U.S. Constitution's requirement for a "natural born" citizen in the Oval Office. Forty-six of the plaintiffs are represented by Taitz, who has worked on a multitude of lawsuits over Obama's eligibility, and two – Drake and Robinson – are represented by Kreep of the United States Justice Foundation.

Kreep told WND after the hearing it appeared to him the judge was expecting answers and failed to get them from government attorneys during the hearing.

"He was asking the [Department of Justice] to explain impeachment. If he really was [legitimately president], how would that work."

Kreep said he argued impeachment wasn't relevant, since "you have to have a valid, elected president." He said a court hearing with full disclosure of evidence is required, since the impeachment provision wouldn't technically apply to someone who never was qualified to be president.

Taitz was contacted by WND but declined to comment on today's hearing.

But Kreep said he argued that a simple numbers formula also doesn't apply. Many of the government arguments have noted the candidates who are plaintiffs, such as Keyes, did not have a reasonable mathematical probability of winning the presidential election.

That assertion is not relevant, Kreep said he argued. Had Obama's ineligibility been publicized before the election, Hillary Clinton likely would have become the nominee, and she might have been vulnerable to other candidates, he said.

Carter's order that no discovery of evidence will be allowed until his decision was continued today.

Lawyers representing Obama in the case claim "no single federal district court has the power to declare that a sitting president is not fit or qualified to occupy the office, and is, therefore, not a legitimate president."

The attorneys have argued the election process and Constitution allow only Congress to examine the credentials of a presidential candidate, and in any event, that opportunity is long gone.

They have argued, "Plaintiffs simply are not the proper parties to challenge President Obama's qualifications or fitness for office and this court is not the proper forum to decide this issue."

The plaintiffs, however, have argued on behalf of their "real, tangible injuries" from Obama's placement in the White House. If he is not eligible, "they have been denied a free and fair election."

They have suggested the simplest resolution is to put Obama, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other government officials under oath and question them about Obama's birth and birth records.

They also have indicated plans to ask, if given permission by the court, for copies of Hawaiian records regarding Obama's birth, Washington state records regarding him and his mother, his Harvard Law School records, passport records and a long list of other documents.

According to Sept. 25 court documents the DOJ filed in response to Kreep's opposition to dismissal, the DOJ states, "The arguments made by these plaintiffs, in large measure, completely ignore the fact that Barack Obama is the president of the United States and seek to treat him as simply a candidate for office. Try as they might, plaintiffs cannot conceal the fact that what they are really seeking in this case is nothing less than a determination by this United States District Court that President Obama should be removed from office. The preposterous nature of this assertion is readily apparent. No single United States District Court has the power to try the question of whether a sitting president of the United States should be allowed to remain in office."

Kreep has requested immediate access to Obama's records, such as his original long-form birth certificate and his Occidental College records. The plaintiffs' suspicion is that those records would undermine the president's statements that he is a "natural born" citizen, which could disqualify him. For example, an original birth certificate could indicate it was a "delayed" filing, which could open the door for a birth location outside the United States.

Likewise, the Occidental College records could be significant if Obama attended on a program for foreign students or represented himself as a foreign student at the time.

The DOJ also filed a separate response to Taitz' opposition to dismissal Sept. 25, stating, "Much of the opposition filed by these plaintiffs is a disjointed polemic, completely devoid of citation to any case or statutory authority. Defendants will not waste the court's time, or that of undersigned counsel by seeking to respond to the many irrelevant statements and references made therein."

REPOSTED LYNN's MESSAGE:

Obama: ACORN? What's that?

Rick Moran
Via Instapundit:


OBAMA: ACORN scandals? There are ACORN scandals? "I didn't even know that ACORN was getting a whole lot of federal money."

This is Obama's MO when something unpleasant is asked by the press. "Tea parties? What tea parties?" you will recall was press secretary Gibb's response to questions about the massive protests.

We would also like to recall that Obama actually worked with ACORN in the early 1990's on Project Vote Smart. He used ACORN foot soldiers in his campaigns for the state senate, recruiting them through his ties with the Maoist New Party in Chicago. And just last year, he used one of their phony front organizations to channel $800,000 to the group for GOTV operations.

He also addressed
ACORN leaders after the election:


When Obama met with ACORN leaders in November, he reminded them of his history with ACORN and his beginnings in Illinois as a Project Vote organizer, a nonprofit focused on voter rights and education. Senator Obama said, "I come out of a grassroots organizing background. That's what I did for three and half years before I went to law school. That's the reason I moved to Chicago was to organize. So this is something that I know personally, the work you do, the importance of it. I've been fighting alongside ACORN on issues you care about my entire career. Even before I was an elected official, when I ran Project Vote voter registration drive in Illinois, ACORN was smack dab in the middle of it, and we appreciate your work."
Obama cannot escape his close ties with ACORN. And lying about what he knows with regard to the group only makes him look guilty.

JUST PLAIN NUTS
Unearthed! Obama's twisted ACORN roots
Track timeline of president's ties to group immersed in scandals

By Chelsea Schilling


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Posted: September 18, 2009

© 2009 WorldNetDaily



While ACORN remains riddled in scandal, lawmakers have voted to cut off federal funding to the group, the U.S. Census Bureau has severed ties to the organization – and the White House has blasted its behavior as "unacceptable."

But just how extensive are President Obama's personal ties to ACORN?

The following is a timeline outlining some of the purported connections between the president and ACORN through the years:

1990s: Obama meets ACORN

ACORN, or the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, first noticed Obama when he was organizing on the far south side of the city with the Developing Communities Project. A March 2, 2008, Los Angeles Times article by Letta Tayler and Keith Herbert, titled "Obama Forged Path As Chicago Community Organizer," explored Obama's pre-law school days as a community organizer in Chicago and his efforts to build a partnership with Chicago's "Friends of the Parks."

"Obama's task was to help far South Side residents press for improvement," the Times article explained.

National Review Online noted, "Part of Obama's work, it would appear, was to organize demonstrations, much in the mold of radical groups like ACORN."

The Times article reveals that Madeleine Talbot, who at the time was a leader at Chicago ACORN, was thoroughly impressed with Obama because "he got people to vote with their feet."

"At the time, Talbot worked at the social action group ACORN and initially considered Obama a competitor," the article stated. "But she became so impressed with his work that she invited him to help train her staff."

Talbott personally led Chicago ACORN's campaign to intimidate banks into making high-risk loans to low-credit customers, Stanley Kurtz reported.

"Long the director of Chicago ACORN, Talbott is a specialist in 'direct action' – organizers' term for their militant tactics of intimidation and disruption," Kurtz writes. "Perhaps her most famous stunt was leading a group of ACORN protesters breaking into a meeting of the Chicago City Council to push for a 'living wage' law, shouting in defiance as she was arrested for mob action and disorderly conduct. But her real legacy may be her drive to push banks into making risky mortgage loans."

1992: Project Vote! and training green ACORNs

As WND reported, in 1992, while he was working as a community organizer in Chicago, Obama headed the Chicago operations of Project Vote!, an ACORN effort to register voters nationally. In Chicago, Obama had his biggest impact registering African-American voters on the city's South Side. However, Obama's "Fight the Smears" website disputes this, saying Obama "never organized with ACORN."

After completing his legal education at Harvard in 1991, Obama returned to Chicago to work on the voting project that developed directly out of a radical revolutionary strategy developed by two Columbia University sociologists in the 1960s. In what became known as the Cloward-Piven strategy, the tactic advocated a revolutionary approach to mobilizing the poor in the form of class warfare against capitalist forces viewed as exploiting labor and oppressing the poor. The Cloward-Piven strategy sought to apply the tactics of the revolutionary civil rights movement, including urban riots, to the poor as a whole, transcending interest-group politics defined by race to involve interest-group politics defined by class.

Kurtz wrote, Obama also "conducted leadership-training seminars for ACORN's up-and-coming organizers. That is, Obama was training the army of ACORN organizers who participated in Madeline Talbott's drive against Chicago's banks."


Obama's Fight the Smears website claims Obama "never organized with ACORN"

1993: Woods Foundation

In 1993, Obama joined the board of the Woods Foundation, a non-profit foundation which declares its goal to "increase opportunities for less advantaged people and communities by giving money primarily to not-for-profit groups involved in housing, the arts and other areas." Obama served along with Bill Ayers and remained on the board until 2002.

Pajamas Media reports that during Obama's time there, ACORN received grants of $45,000 (2000), $30,000 (2001), $45,000 (2001), $30,000 (2002) and $40,000 (2002) from the Woods Fund.

1994: Buycks-Robinson v. Citibank

As WND reported, in 1994, Obama, a graduate of Harvard Law School then fresh from his Project Vote! experience, represented ACORN in the Buycks-Roberson v. Citibank Federal Savings Bank case, in which ACORN pressed for Citibank to make more loans to marginally qualified African-American applicants "in a race neutral way."

After obtaining a settlement in the Citibank litigation, ACORN used its subsidiary organization ACORN Housing, a nationwide organization with offices in more than 30 U.S. cities, to push the group's radical agenda to get subprime home buyers mortgages under the most favorable terms possible.

1995: ACORN attorney in Illinois lawsuit

In 1995, Obama was hired as a lawyer for ACORN in a major lawsuit. As a lawyer with civil-rights law firm Davis Miner Barnhill & Galland, he sued the state of Illinois on behalf of ACORN to implement the federal "motor voter" law.

Also in 1995, as WND's Jerome Corsi reported, Bill Ayers co-founded the Chicago Annenberg Challenge with a $50 million grant program for the Chicago public schools. Ayers selected Obama to be the first chairman of the board of the Annenberg Challenge, a position Obama held for eight years, until 2003, a period during which Ayers remained active with the Challenge.

In his Wall Street Journal article, Stanley Kurtz wrote that the Annenberg project funneled money to through various far-left community organizers, including ACORN.

1996: New Party ties

As WND reported, newspaper evidence shows Obama was a member of the New Party, which sought to elect members to public office with the aim of moving the Democratic Party far leftward to ultimately form a new political party with a socialist agenda. While running for the Illinois state Senate in 1996 as a Democrat, Obama actively sought and received the endorsement of the New Party, according to confirmed reports during last year's presidential campaign.

According to Democratic Socialists of America documents, the New Party worked with ACORN to promote its candidates.

In 1995, the DSA's New Ground newsletter stated, "In Chicago, the New Party's biggest asset and biggest liability is ACORN.

"Like most organizations, ACORN is a mixed bag," the newsletter said. "One one hand, in Chicago, ACORN is a group that attempts to organize some of the most depressed communities in the city. Chicago organizers for ACORN and organizers for SEIU Local 880 have been given modest monthly recruitment quotas for new New Party members. On the other hand, like most groups that depend on canvassing for fundraising, it's easy enough to find burned out and disgruntled former employees. And ACORN has not had the reputation for being interested in coalition politics – until recently and, happily, not just within the New Party."

1997-2004: Illinois state senator



Obama meeting with ACORN leaders as an Illinois Senate candidate

In 1997, Obama became an Illinois state senator. ACORN national board member Toni Foulkes bragged of ACORN's long-standing relationship with Obama prior to his election in the 2003-2004 issue of Social Policy.

Foulkes wrote in "Case Study: Chicago – The Barack Obama Campaign":

    ACORN noticed [Obama] when he was organizing on the far south side of the city with the Developing Communities Project. He was a very good organizer. When he returned from law school, we asked him to help us with a lawsuit to challenge the state of Illinois' refusal to abide by the National Voting Rights Act, also known as motor voter. .. Obama took the case, known as ACORN vs. Edgar (the name of the Republican governor at the time) and we won. Obama then went on to run a voter registration project with Project VOTE in 1992 that made it possible for Carol Moseley Braun to win the Senate that year. Project VOTE delivered 50,000 newly registered voters in that campaign (ACORN delivered about 5,000 of them).

    Since then, we have invited Obama to our leadership training sessions to run the session on power every year, and, as a result, many of our newly developing leaders got to know him before he ever ran for office. Thus, it was natural for many of us to be active volunteers in his first campaign for State Senate and then his failed bid for Congress in 1996. By the time he ran for Senate, we were old friends.
2005: U.S. senator

In 2005, Obama became a U.S. senator.

2007: From Obama's own mouth ...

On Obama's Organizing for America blog, Sam Graham-Felsen, a paid blogger, wrote about Obama's November 2007 speech to ACORN leaders:

    When Obama met with ACORN leaders in November, he reminded them of his history with ACORN and his beginnings in Illinois as a Project Vote organizer, a nonprofit focused on voter rights and education. Senator Obama said, "I come out of a grassroots organizing background. That's what I did for three and half years before I went to law school. That's the reason I moved to Chicago was to organize. So this is something that I know personally, the work you do, the importance of it. I've been fighting alongside ACORN on issues you care about my entire career. Even before I was an elected official, when I ran Project Vote voter registration drive in Illinois, ACORN was smack dab in the middle of it, and we appreciate your work."
Again, on Dec. 1, 2007, Obama spoke at the Heartland Democratic Presidential Forum, a meeting for community organizing groups including ACORN. Obama received wild applause from the crowd as he promised that community organizing groups such as ACORN would help shape the agenda for his presidency.

Naked Emperor News posted the following video of his pledge:

He was asked, "If elected president of the Unites States, would you agree, in your first 100 days, to meet with the delegation of representatives from these various community organizations that campaigned for community values? Could they count on you in your first 100 days to sit down with them?"

Obama responded, "Yes. But let me even say before I even get inaugurated, during the transition, we're going to be calling all of you in to help us shape the agenda. We're going to be having meetings all across the country with community organizations so that you have input into the agenda for the next presidency of the United States of America."

2008: ACORN endorses Obama

On Feb. 21, 2008, the Acorn Political Action Committee endorsed Obama over Hillary Clinton during the 2008 primaries.

During the presidential campaign, Barack Obama and his running mate, Joe Biden, insisted they had nothing to do with ACORN after the inner-city advocacy group became engulfed in controversy over voter-registration fraud.

But in August 2008, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported that the Obama campaign paid $832,598.29 to ACORN "offshoot" Citizens Services Inc. for "get out the vote" projects from Feb. 25 to May 17.

The newspaper revealed that Obama's payments to CSI for services were unusual: "For example, CSI received payments of $63,000 and $75,000 for advance work. Excluding the large payments to CSI, the average amount the Obama campaign spent with other organizations was $558.82 per check on more than 1,200 entries classified as advance work."


Anita Moncrief, former ACORN insider

According to the report, Citizens Services Inc. is headquartered at the same address as ACORN's national headquarters in New Orleans. A 2006 ACORN publication describes Citizen Services Inc. as "ACORN's campaign services entity."

In 2008, Anita MonCrief, a woman who worked in the Strategic Writing and Research Department of ACORN Political Operations and its affiliate Project Vote from 2005 through January 2008, said ACORN acted as an unofficial arm of the Democratic Party during the election and used cash operations to keep some financial transactions under wraps.

"It has always been a Democrat operation," she recently told WND. "They've never made any secrets about who they support. Their political action committees are usually set up to support these Democratic candidates."

She said political action committees support Democrat candidates, and the at the same time voter registration drives were being conducted, the group was putting out propaganda in communities telling people not to vote for Republicans.

According to a Pittsburgh Tribune-Review report, she further told a Pennsylvania court before the election that the Obama camp provided ACORN with a "donor list" that enabled Project Vote to solicit contributions from Obama supporters who had "maxed out" under federal contribution limits but who could surreptitiously give more to Obama's cause by donating to ACORN and its affiliates.

As WND reported, Project Vote, an affiliate of ACORN, is now suing MonCrief to the tune of $5 million.

2009: Criminal case against ACORN

According to the results of a congressional investigation done in July, ACORN was found to be rife with criminal activity.

A report from the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform states that ACORN "has repeatedly and deliberately engaged in systemic fraud. Both structurally and operationally, ACORN hides behind a paper wall of nonprofit corporate protections to conceal a criminal conspiracy on the part of its directors, to launder federal money in order to pursue a partisan political agenda and to manipulate the American electorate."

Since 1994, ACORN has received more than $53 million in federal funds, according to the report.

"Under the Obama administration, ACORN stands to receive a whopping $8.5 billion in available stimulus funds. Operationally, ACORN is a shell game played in 120 cities, 43 states and the District of Columbia through a complex structure designed to conceal illegal activities, to use taxpayer and tax-exempt dollars for partisan political purposes, and to distract investigators. Structurally, ACORN is a chess game in which senior management is shielded from accountability by multiple layers of volunteers and compensated employees who serve as pawns to take the fall for every bad act," the report said.

The report continued, "Lobbying is a substantial part of what ACORN does. It has endorsed Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH), Representative Albert Wynn (D-MD), and Representative Donna Edwards (D-MD). ACORN keeps donor records from the Clinton, Kerry and Obama campaigns with the intent to engage in prohibited communications. ACORN receives federal funding yet engages in improper lobbying. ACORN and its nonprofit affiliates do not have separate accounts. Neither ACORN nor any of its affiliates have properly reported their political activities to the IRS. These harms fly under the legal radar because the IRS rarely checks for compliance. The 'no substantial part' test is rarely enforced and the accounts of ACORN and its affiliates are illegally commingled."

ACORN became a hot topic during the 2008 presidential race because of Obama's ties to the group as well as its own admission that more than 400,000 of the 1.3 million voter registrations it claimed to have collected were not valid. ACORN registered 1.3 million new voters last year, and it is now under investigation in numerous states and faces voter fraud charges in nearly two dozen states.

The Obama administration selected ACORN to recruit counters for the 2010 Census, but the Census Bureau severed its ties with ACORN on Sept. 11.The Internal Revenue Service has also indicated that it is conducting a "thorough review" of its agreements with ACORN. According to Bloomberg, ACORN has has helped prepare about 150,000 free tax returns since 2004 for low-income families. Those returns have generated $190 million in tax refunds.

Cutting ties with ACORN?

Obama has tried to publicly disassociate himself from the group.

"The only involvement I've had with ACORN was I represented them alongside the U.S. Justice Department in making Illinois implement a motor voter law that helped people get registered at DMVs," Obama declared in one of the presidential debates.

"Now, with respect to ACORN, ACORN is a community organization. Apparently what they've done is they were paying people to go out and register folks, and apparently some of the people who were out there didn't really register people, they just filled out a bunch of names," Obama said.

"It had nothing to do with us. We were not involved," he declared.

Today, the House voted 345-75 to eliminate federal funding of ACORN after undercover videos showed counselors giving advice on tax evasion to a undercover reporters posing as a pimp and prostitute.

According to Fox News, the Defund ACORN Act prohibits any "federal contract grant, cooperative agreement or any other form of agreement (including a memorandum of understanding)" from being awarded to or entered into with ACORN. It also prohibits federal funds "in any other form" from being granted to ACORN.

The decision followed a Sept. 14 Senate vote to strip millions of dollars in federal housing funds for ACORN.

House Minority Leader John Boehner has called on President Obama to indicate whether he would sign a bill forbidding ACORN from receiving federal funding, the New York Times reported. The White House is now distancing itself from ACORN and its scandals.

Video

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs referenced the video that revealed ACORN employees giving illegal tax advice to a man and woman disguised as a pimp and prostitute.

"Obviously, the conduct that you see on those tapes is completely unacceptable. I think everyone would agree to that," Gibbs said. "The administration takes accountability extremely seriously."

However, Gibbs said he's unsure of whether Obama will ask Democrats to sever ties with ACORN.

"I don't know that I've had any discussion with him about that," he said.

Obama Admin: Cap And Trade Could Cost Families $1,761 A Year                                
The Obama administration has privately concluded that a cap and trade law would cost American taxpayers up to $200 billion a year, the equivalent of hiking personal income taxes by about 15 percent.

Parents Say N.J. Principal Unapologetic for Video of Kids Praising Obama

Fox News: The principal of a New Jersey elementary school where young students were videotaped singing the praises of President Obama is making no apologies for the videotape and says she would allow the performance again if she could, according to parents who spoke with her Thursday night. Three parents told FOXNews.com that Dr. Denise King, principal of B. Bernice Young Elementary School in Burlington, N.J., defended the controversial performance, which was videotaped and posted on YouTube, when they approached her during a "Back to School" event.

Little Johnny does it again

A teacher in  New York asked her 6th grade class how many of them were Obama fans… Not really knowing what an Obama fan was, but wanting to be liked by the teacher, all the kids raised their hands except for Little Johnny. The teacher asked Little Johnny why he decided to be Different... again.

Little Johnny said, 'Because I'm not an Obama fan.'
The teacher said, 'Why aren't you an Obama fan?'
Johnny said, 'Because I'm a conservative.'
The teacher asked why he's a conservative. Little Johnny answered, 'Well, My Mom's a conservative and my Dad's a conservative, so I'm a conservative.'
The teacher asks, 'If your Mom was a moron and your Dad was an idiot, what would that make you?'
With a big smile, Little Johnny replied, 'That would make me an Obama fan.'
 I always liked Little Johnny.

The arrogance is breathtaking

Posted: September 19, 2009
1:00 am Eastern

© 2009 

I think I've finally figured it out.

What is it about this administration and the mainstream media that grates on people's nerves? Why are folks so angry that they're holding heated town hall meetings, rallies and tea parties from coast to coast? Why do we object so strongly to current policies that we're willing to travel great distances at our own expense to protest, only to be called loathsome names?

Is it that the government is trying to shove health-care reform down our throats despite the fact that 83 percent of Americans are satisfied with what they have? Is it the cap-and-trade farce that will skyrocket prices on every conceivable good and service for no discernible benefit? Is it Obama's goal to spread our hard-earned wealth to those who haven't earned it?

It's all of those things, of course, and more. But the objections of many Americans can be summed up in one single word: ARROGANCE.

Have you noticed the arrogance of this administration and its media? If you combine a liberal president with a liberal Congress, reported by a liberal press … the result is a degree of egotism and superiority toward the citizens of this country seldom equaled in any presidential term.

Consider Rep. Joe Wilson's shout of "You lie!" during Obama's address to a joint session of Congress. Putting aside the fact that the president was lying (on the issue of whether illegal immigrants would have access to government-run health care), it seems the administration is determined to make an example of Wilson by demanding multiple apologies in various locations and under assorted conditions (standing on his head, hopping on one foot, walking while chewing gum, that kind of thing).

Have you seen our Tea Party Store? Everything you need to express your outrage with the Obama Socialist Express

Next we listened, mouths agape, as Jimmy Carter lavishly painted us all with the same hateful brush of racism if we disagreed with Obama. "There is an inherent feeling among many in this country that an African-American should not be president," he snarked. That's amazing, don't you think? Every waitress, every lawyer, every stay-at-home mom, every house painter and secretary and mechanic and grocer and farmer and banker – we're all racists if we don't like our government's out-of-control spending and wild ride into socialism. Who'da thunk?

Then we have the mainstream media's persistent refusal to cover the shocking fact that ACORN encourages child prostitution supported by your tax dollars. Reporters and news agencies will no longer report major breaking news stories if it might make the administration look bad (Van Jones, anyone?). Apparently, anything that might even indirectly cast aspersions on our godlike president is off-limits.

How about when Obama stood before cameras in Cincinnati and said, "I've got a question for all these folks who say, 'You know, we're going to pull the plug on Grandma' and 'This is all about illegal immigrants' – you've heard all the lies. I've got a question for all those folks: What are you going to do? What's your answer? What's your solution? And you know what? They don't have one." Wrong. Republicans have offered up at least three alternative plans for health-care reform. Obama just doesn't want to admit it.

Then of course there's last weekend's tea party in Washington, D.C. Did you know – you're gonna love this – that the White House was unaware that the protest was going to take place?

A million people planned to show up outside their door and they didn't notice any preparations? Didn't they see all those workmen putting up Port-a-Potties the week before? Didn't that register? "I don't know who the group is," White House spokesman Robert Gibbs told reporters with a shrug.

With a shrug … And what does that "shrug" mean? Why, it's quite simple: You shrug when you're dismissing something. We the People don't exist. We're just a bunch of racist whiny brats having a collective temper tantrum. Doubtless Mr. Gibbs feels that the current administration should be allowed to do anything it likes since we're too stupid to know what's good for us.

Undaunted – or perhaps "unaware" – of the 9/12 March on Washington, Obama chose last Saturday to stump for his health-care reform far away in Minnesota rather than face his own citizens screaming for governmental restraint.

It's a sad day indeed when other countries see our (put your favorite explicative here) president for what he really is, but we do not.

Here is an interesting editorial from someone outside our country as to what is going on!

If al-Qaeda, the Taliban and the rest of the Looney Tunes brigade want to kick America to death, they had better move in quickly and grab a piece of the action before Barack Obama finishes the job himself. Never in the history of the United States has a president worked so actively against the interests of his own people - not even Jimmy Carter.

Obama's problem is that he does not know who the enemy is. To him, the enemy does not squat in caves in Waziristan, clutching automatic weapons and reciting the more militant verses from the Koran: instead, it sits around at tea parties in Kentucky quoting from the US Constitution. Obama is not at war with terrorists, but with his Republican fellow citizens. He has never abandoned the campaign trail.

That is why he opened Pandora's Box by publishing the Justice Department's legal opinions on waterboarding and other hardline interrogation techniques. He cynically subordinated the national interest to his partisan desire to embarrass the Republicans. Then he had to rush to 
Langley , Virginia to try to reassure a demoralized CIA that had just discovered the President of the United States was an even more formidable foe than al-Qaeda..

"Don't be discouraged by what's happened the last few weeks," he told intelligence officers. Is he kidding? Thanks to him, al-Qaeda knows the private interrogation techniques available to the 
US intelligence agencies and can train its operatives to withstand them - or would do so, if they had not already been outlawed.

So, next time a senior al-Qaeda hood is captured, all the CIA can do is ask him nicely if he would care to reveal when a major population centre is due to be hit by a terror spectacular, or which American city is about to be irradiated by a dirty bomb. Your view of this situation will be dictated by one simple criterion: whether or not you watched the people jumping from the twin towers...

President Pantywaist's recent world tour, cozying up to all the bad guys, excited the ambitions of 
America 's enemies. Here, they realized, is a sucker they can really take to the cleaners.

 
His only enemies are fellow Americans.

 
Which prompts the question: why does President Pantywaist hate America so badly?

Obama’s Tax Plan a Failed Model


“Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.”

— Ronald Reagan

In the perpetual battle of “us” vs. “them” and the left/right spitting match-rock fight, it often is too easy for ideology and partisanship to overshadow reality. Both the “us” team and the “them” team are rock solid convinced they are right, the other guys are wrong and don’t want to confused with any facts that contradict their preconceived opinions and prejudices.

WHAT A RECORD

Obama's First Six Months'  Accomplishments

 1.  Offended the  Queen of England .

 2.  Bowed to  the King of Saudi Arabia .

 3.   Praised the Marxist Daniel  Ortega.

 4.  Kissed Socialist Hugo  Chavez on the cheek.

 5.  Endorsed  the Socialist Evo Morales of Bolivia  .

 6.  Sided with Hugo Chavez and  Communist Fidel Castro  against  
Honduras  .

 7.  Announced we would meet with  Iranians with no pre-conditions  
while  they're building their nuclear  weapons.

 8.  Gave away billions to  AIG also without  pre-conditions.

 9.  Expanded the  bailouts.

 10.  Insulted everyone  who has ever loved a Special  Olympian.

 11.  Doubled our  national debt.

 12.  Announced the  termination of our new missile defense  system  
the day after North Korea  launched an ICBM.

 13.  Released  information on U.S. intelligence gathering  despite  
urgings of his own CIA  director and the prior four CIA  directors.

 14.  Accepted without  comment that five of his cabinet  members  
cheated on their taxes and  two other nominees withdrew after  they  
couldn't take the  heat.

 15. Appointed a Homeland Security  Chief who identified  military  
veterans and abortion  opponents as "dangers to the  nation."

 16.  Ordered that the  word "terrorism" no longer be used  and  
instead refers to such acts as  "man made disasters."

 17.  Circled  the globe to publicly apologize for America 's  world  
leadership.

 18.   Told the Mexican president that the violence in  their country  
was because of  us.

 19.  Politicized the census by  moving it into the White House  from  
the Department of  Commerce.

 20.  Appointed as  Attorney General the man who orchestrated  the  
forced removal and expulsion to  Cuba of a 9-year-old whose  mother  
died trying to bring him to  freedom in the United States  .

 21.  Salutes as heroes three  Navy SEALS who took down  three  
terrorists who threatened one  American life and the next  day  
announces members of the Bush  administration may stand trial  for  
"torturing" three 9/11 terrorists  by pouring water up their  noses.

 22.  Low altitude photo  shoot of Air Force One over New York  City  
that frightened thousands of New  Yorkers.

 23.  Sent his National  Defense Advisor to Europe to assure  them  
that the US will no longer treat  Israel in a special manner and  
they  might be on their own with the  Muslims.

 24.  Praised Jimmy  Carter's trip to Gaza where he sided  with  
terrorist Hamas against Israel  .

 25.  Nationalized General Motors  and Chrysler while  turning  
shareholder control over to  the unions and freezing out  retired  
investors who owned their  bonds.  Committed unlimited  taxpayer  
billions in the  process.

 26.  Passed a huge energy  tax in the House that will make  American  
industry even less  competitive while costing homeowners  thousands  
per  year.

 27.  Announced nationalized  health care "reform" that will  strip  
seniors of their Medicare, cut  pay of physicians, increase taxes  
yet  another $1 trillion, and put everyone on rationed  care with  
government bureaucrats  deciding who gets care and who  doesn't.


Bloomberg:  Daschle says,  "Health care reform will not be  pain  
free. Seniors should be more  accepting of the conditions that  come  
with age instead of treating  them," while former Colorado  Governor  
Dick Lamm says seniors have  "a duty to die."

 If this does not  sufficiently raise your ire, just remember  that  
the President, Senators and  Congressmen have their own special  gold  
plated health care plan which is  guaranteed the remainder of  their  
lives and they are not subject  to this new law if they pass it.

 Please  use the power of the Internet to get this message  out. Talk  
it up at the grassroots  level.  We have an election coming up  in  
November 2010 where we can  reverse the dangerous  
direction of  the Obama administration and its  allies.
 
 
If you disagree - do  nothing.

I decided to send my kids to school AND watch the speech myself. I am going to make notes and when they get home we will discuss it together. My 6 y/o son isn't going to remember most of his speech because it wasn't in cartoon or Xbox form. My daughter HATES Obama anyway, and will most likely be negatively boisterous about his appearance letting the teachers know that any curriculum given to them about the speech was illegal.

Should be an interesting afternoon.

A Lingering Question of Obama’s Competence

Posted by: Mike's America @ 9:08 pm

If the Administration cannot get even simple details right, then how can they cope effectively with the major challenges we confront?

Remember the laugh when the White House misspelled Obama’s name on an official document relating to Arms Control agreements with the Russians? At the time, it was good for a chuckle.

Now, people are starting to wonder if the boys and girls who arrived at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue on the Smoke and Mirrors Hopey-Changey express may not be quite up to the job.

Take for instance the controversial Presidential address Obama will deliver to schoolchildren on Tuesday. Don’t you think someone at the White House would have bothered to check if all the nation’s schools would be open for pupils that day? Apparently not:

Schools in New York, Boston, Los Angeles, Buffalo, Seattle, Eugene OR, Arlington NY and perhaps many others will not be open until after Tuesday. Hundreds of thousands of students will not be subjected to the dear leader’s rant.

And get this: the White House and Obama folks at the Dept. of Education, (who distributed the instructions which have caused so much controversy), misspelled schoolchildren in the announcement. On both web sites the media advisory reads “President Obama Delivers National Address to America’s Schoochildren.”

Remember, these folks were supposed to be the best and the brightest and would restore people’s faith in government after the Bush years. But they seem to spend all their time in partisan attack politics and slick gimmicks like this speech instead of paying attention to details of governing.

Ed Morrisey, writing at Hot Air stirs this latest goof into the soup of missteps and malfunctions which seem to be a weekly occurrence with this bunch. In concluding, he asks this question:

Quote:

Who could have warned us that a man who served seven years in the state legislature and three years in the Senate would not have been prepared for the toughest executive position in the Free World? We did. Repeatedly. So did John McCain, and for that matter, so did Hillary Clinton.


Yes, we did warn voters. Repeatedly. We warned them about Obama’s shady past, his radical liberal associates who were the best clue as to who and what he really was. We warned voters about Obama’s big spending and socialist agenda and about the racebaiting that he practiced during the campaign.

Obama said that was all scare tactics even if he doesn’t look like the other president’s on the dollar bills. But Americans have learned the hard way. That’s what is motivating them to come out and protest by the millions.
