President Goof

Must see photo:

One can debate whether Obama is a terrible President--I think he is--but I don't think anyone can deny that he is an unmanly jerk.

Can anyone say: Michael Dukakis?

Or John Kerry?

A high-level inquiry into the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change found there was “little evidence” for its claims about global warming.

It also said the panel had emphasised the negative impacts of climate change and made “substantive findings” based on little proof...

Take heed: "If you are as worried as I am about the left’s effort to force ever larger amounts of big government onto our lives, then you should be looking into the issue of Net Neutrality."

The Right Needs to Wake up to Net Neutrality

Beck rally: "I didn't go to Vietnam and get my face blown off, my fingers blown off, my body damaged and wounded beyond repair for what this government's doing right now."

Glenn Beck crowd: Not so white as advertised
Hundreds of thousands of Americans – of many creeds and colors – made what ended up being a pilgrimage of sorts to the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., for Glenn Beck's Restoring Honor rally.

Catholics, other Christians and Jews spoke to WND on site, many celebrating the themes of faith and reliance on God proclaimed from the platform.

Obama’s August Surprise

Turning AZ and 22 other States over to the UN
After turning NYC over to the Islamists and leftist sympathizers, via endorsing their 9/11 Victory Mosque (any Muslim project called “The Cordoba Initiative” has to be just that), Dictator-in-Chief Obama believes that he has found the way to both destroy opposition to his Orwellian plans for the former United States of America and introduce OUR country’s final demise...

Glenn Beck would like this!


Exodus 25:6

Oil for the light.

My soul, how much thou needest this, for thy lamp will not long continue to burn without it. Thy snuff will smoke and become an offence if light be gone, and gone it will be if oil be absent. Thou hast no oil well springing up in thy human nature, and therefore thou must go to them that sell and buy for thyself, or like the foolish virgins, thou wilt have to cry, "My lamp is gone out."

Even the consecrated lamps could not give light without oil; though they shone in the tabernacle they needed to be fed, though no rough winds blew upon them they required to be trimmed, and thy need is equally as great. Under the most happy circumstances thou canst not give light for another hour unless fresh oil of grace be given thee.

It was not every oil that might be used in the Lord's service; neither the petroleum which exudes so plentifully from the earth, nor the produce of fishes, nor that extracted from nuts would be accepted; one oil only was selected, and that the best olive oil. Pretended grace from natural goodness, fancied grace from priestly hands, or imaginary grace from outward ceremonies will never serve the true saint of God; he knows that the Lord would not be pleased with rivers of such oil. He goes to the olive-press of Gethsemane, and draws his supplies from Him who was crushed therein. The oil of gospel grace is pure and free from lees and dregs, and hence the light which is fed thereon is clear and bright.

Our churches are the Saviour's golden candelabra, and if they are to be lights in this dark world, they must have much holy oil. Let us pray for ourselves, our ministers, and our churches, that they may never lack oil for the light. Truth, holiness, joy, knowledge, love, these are all beams of the sacred light, but we cannot give them forth unless in private we receive oil from God the Holy Ghost.


Are you Islamo-nauseous?

Doug Giles spells out with Windex-like clarity how our cousins across the pond fell under the PC spell, got neutered and now have a Muslim mess on their hands... and he doesn't want what happened in Londonistan to happen to us here!
America, if being a bigot means that:

- I can’t listen to my gut,

- or suspect their motives,

- or wonder aloud how wrong it is to have a Mosque built in close proximity to such a calamity,

- or I’m disallowed to question and connect the dots with Rauf’s radical associations and statements,

- or if I do not want what has happened in Europe to ever happen here where we lose our national identity and liberties by propping up their preposterous wishes...

...then I guess I might be a bigot. However, I prefer a tag of my own choosing, namely, “Islamo-nauseous,” as I am sick of them talking smack about our country while demanding everything from it.

A magic elixir is shown to promote weight loss

A team led by Brenda Davy of Virginia Tech has run the first randomised controlled trial studying the link between water consumption and weight loss. A report on the 12-week trial, published earlier this year, suggested that drinking water before meals does lead to weight loss. At a meeting of the American Chemical Society in Boston this week, Dr Davy unveiled the results of a year-long follow-up study that confirms and expands that finding.

Obamacare’s Devastating Consequences

Obama gives your tax dollars to rebuild Muslim mosques around the world!

While millions of Americans struggle to keep their homes and job, President Barack Obama can't give our tax dollars away fast enough...

DId you know: Obama's failed stimulus program cost more than the Iraq war

7 things to keep in mind:

* Obama's stimulus, passed in his first month in office, will cost more than the entire Iraq War -- more than $100 billion (15%) more.

* Just the first two years of Obama's stimulus cost more than the entire cost of the Iraq War under President Bush, or six years of that war.

* Iraq War spending accounted for just 3.2% of all federal spending while it lasted.

* Iraq War spending was not even one quarter of what we spent on Medicare in the same time frame.

* Iraq War spending was not even 15% of the total deficit spending in that time frame. The cumulative deficit, 2003-2010, would have been four-point-something trillion dollars with or without the Iraq War.

* The Iraq War accounts for less than 8% of the federal debt held by the public at the end of 2010 ($9.031 trillion).

* During Bush's Iraq years, 2003-2008, the federal government spent more on education that it did on the Iraq War. (State and local governments spent about ten times more.)

Sharia for Dummies

Imam Feisal Abdel Rauf claims that the US constitution is Sharia compliant. Now let us examine below a few laws of Sharia to see if Imam Rauf is truthful or a fraud:

An easy way for you to help the 20 million people ravaged by floods in Pakistan!

Clean water is a major issue in Pakistan following the floods which have left up to 20 million people affected and over 6 million at urgent risk. One of the main risks now is from water-carried disease.
From Internet Marketer Martin Avis:
No Internet marketing today, no trivia and no chit-chat.

This is way too important.

Long time readers of Kickstart will remember that a few years ago
I held an appeal to raise money for my Rotary Club to buy

Lifestraws, if you haven't heard of them, are high-tech filter
tubes that allow a person to suck up water from any dirty,
contaminated source and make it 100% safe to drink.

Each Lifestraw lasts a person for up to a year and for those
stuck in disaster areas, where water is anything but safe to
drink, they save lives.

Each straw cost just a couple of bucks. The price of a cup of

Right now there are 6 million people at significant risk in
Pakistan and the Rotary Club coordinating the buying in and
sending out of Lifestraws (over 100,000 have been sent worldwide
since the project began) has completely run out of stocks.

The last 11,000 in the warehouse have already been sent to
Pakistan and now the cupboard is bare.

My Rotary Club - and many others - is now organizing a fast
program of fundraisers and bucket collections to raise money to
quickly buy more container loads of Lifestraws.

The need is desperate - you know that I'm sure as the news in the
papers and on TV has shown the sheer unimaginable scale of the

We can't help everyone, but every Lifestraw we can get to
Pakistan will help save a life. That's all we can hope to do -
save one life at a time.

And you can help.

Please help.

I have reopened the Kickstart Lifestraw Appeal - you can find the
page at

It tells you about Lifestraws - what they are, what they can do
and why we need your money so urgently. Both to help the
situation right now and to prepare for the inevitable needs the
next time nature strikes.

But more importantly, there is a PayPal donation button there so
you can send us as much as you can afford.

As this is a Rotary Club initiative, the money will go directly
to my club's account - not to me - and as Rotarians never make
any admin charges 100% of your donation (after PayPal's fees)
will go straight towards buying and distributing Lifestraws.

Please visit right now.

And please give as generously as you can.

Many thanks,

Martin Avis

Texas says "FU" to Obama's EPA

Lone Star state won't participate in Obama's lawless policy

Official from Judicial Watch says U.S. government apparently doesn’t consider it a priority to keep undocumented nationals from terrorist-sponsoring nations from roaming freely throughout the country...

In what it termed a reprehensible move for an agency charged with protecting the nation, a non-partisan legal group is reporting that the Department of Homeland Security has released nearly 500 illegal aliens -- who remain fugitives -- from terrorist-sponsoring countries and others known to present a danger to the U.S.

A conservative news web site,, had obtained government records under the Freedom of Information Act. The records show that, the Department of Homeland Security caught and released 481 illegal aliens from nations designated by the State Department as sponsors of terrorism or “countries of interest.”

According to legal eagles at Judicial Watch, these dangerous illegal aliens remain fugitives whose whereabouts are unknown, as proven by Immigration and Customs Enforcement's own database accessed by the news group. All came from four nations that sponsor terrorism -- Iran, Syria, Sudan and Cuba -- or countries determined by the U.S. government to present a threat. Those include Afghanistan, Algeria, Lebanon, Libya, Nigeria, Iraq, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Somalia and Yemen.
Illegal aliens from terrorist nations released in U.S. by DHS

Obama administration leaves our soldiers without food, blankets, ammo...

Afghan outrage: U.S. troops scrounge for blankets, bullets - 'One of my soldiers went without ammo for 5 weeks'



Did you know that Imam Rauf wrote Obama's Muslim speech in Cairo???

Senior Obama administration officials call for an escalation of U.S. operations in Yemen...

We are told that, when Barack Hussein Obama was running for President of the United States, Obama made more than 500 campaign promises during the campaign...

In "Barack Obama: The War We Need To Win" (Counterterrorism Fact Sheet: Obama'08), we were told that Obama, if elected, would be busy

“America must show – through deeds as well as words – that we stand with those who seek a better life. . . . As president, I will make it a focus of my foreign policy to contain and roll back the tide of hopelessness that gives rise to hate.”

Even the best military, intelligence, and police work in the world won’t beat al Qaeda if we cannot stop the organization from rebuilding every time we break their network and kill their leaders. From Africa to Central Asia to the Pacific Rim, nearly 60 countries stand on the brink of conflict or collapse. These failed states are the perfect incubators for extremism and terror. Barack Obama will work to combat hopelessness around the globe and dry out the rising well of support for extremism...
• Launch a Public Diplomacy Effort. World opinion of the United States has fallen significantly since September 11. According to the Pew Global Attitudes Survey, 80 percent of citizens of predominantly Muslim countries have solidly negative views of the United States. Barack Obama will launch a coordinated, multi-agency program of
public diplomacy...
But, alas: A new poll of Arab public opinion finds a significant drop in views of President Obama from a year ago!

On February 27, 2010 (a Saturday, by the way), we were told that Obama signs Patriot Act extension without reforms
President Obama signed a one-year extension of three sections of the USA Patriot Act on Saturday without any new limits on the measures that many liberal groups and Democrats said were necessary to safeguard American civil liberties.
Wasn't there some campaign promise about that?

Oh, yes: [No. 179: Revise the Patriot Act to increase oversight on government surveillance].

And then we were also told, in "Barack Obama: The War We Need To Win" (Counterterrorism Fact Sheet: Obama'08), that Obama would be very busy

“We cannot win a war unless we maintain the high ground and keep the people on our side. But because the administration decided to take the low road, our troops have more enemies. Because the administration cast aside international norms that reflect American values, we are less able to advance our values. When I am president. . . . we will again set an example for the world that the law is not subject to the whims of stubborn rulers, and that justice is not arbitrary.”

Barack Obama would restore America’s standing, reputation and authority in the world.

As president, Obama will:

• End the Use of Torture and Extreme Rendition. [No. 175: End the use of torture] and [No. 176: End the use of extreme rendition]
But wait...oh no! Obama's a back door man? [Just like Bill Clinton, apparently!]

Who knew???
Obama's rendition shame?
In the wake of newly released CIA memos providing further disturbing details on the CIA's overseas secret prisons programme for "terror suspects", the Obama administration is sneaking some far-reaching and dubious changes to US treatment of terror suspects through the back door.
Remember when Obama told everyone that his very first act as our president would be to
• Close the Guantanamo Bay Detention Center. [No. 177: Close the Guantanamo Bay Detention Center]
Sorry, folks: it's still open for business as usual!

And who could forget about these nasty little buggers:
• Eliminate Warrantless Wiretaps. [No. 180: Restrict warrantless wiretaps]
As recently as last April, Salon wails about
The criminal NSA eavesdropping program
...the Obama DOJ -- exactly like the Bush DOJ in the case before Judge Taylor -- refused to offer legal justifications to the court for this eavesdropping. Instead, the Obama DOJ took the imperial and hubristic position that the court had no right whatsoever to rule on the legality of the's thus no surprise that media accounts tie the Obama administration to the cover-up of this program at least as much as the Bush administration.
So, here we are, now being told that the CIA sees increased threat from al-Qaeda in Yemen
For the first time since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, CIA analysts see one of al-Qaeda's offshoots - rather than the core group now based in Pakistan - as the most urgent threat to U.S. security, officials said.

The sober new assessment of al-Qaeda's affiliate in Yemen has helped prompt senior Obama administration officials to call for an escalation of U.S. operations there - including a proposal to add armed CIA drones to a clandestine campaign of U.S. military strikes, the officials said.

Paranormal blogger Cherlyn Gardner Strong comes down to earth: Life on the Arizona-Mexico border: A look at life in my neck of the woods...

Ramadan, the West Wing tarp, and ritual sacrifice: where are the animal rights groups now?

To begin with, many people are wondering: Why is Obama honoring Ramadan? which began on or around August 11, 2010 and will finish on or around September 10, 2010. . .not to mention all the people who are wondering why there is also a mysterious white tarp covering the West Wing!!!

As seen from the Rose Garden, The West Wing of the White House is covered in white tarp Sunday, Aug. 15, 2010.

A tarp covers the West Wing of the White House in Washington, DC, August 16, 2010, as maintenance work, including power washing, is completed as US President Barack Obama travels the next few weeks.

Has he been gone continuously? Or does he just go back and forth???

Now, here is an interesting--but not happy--story [H/T: Carpe Diem] coming out of Maryland about a farm which caters to some of the literally thousands of Muslim immigrants in the Washington area: Business caters to Muslim immigrants seeking to fulfill ritual animal sacrifices
As Ramadan approached last week, Muslim immigrants preparing for their pre-holiday feast sacrificed goats in halal slaughterhouses -- those that conform to Islamic law -- family farms and their garages. . .
. . .or wherever they are able.
This budding sub-sector of the meat industry caters to Muslims who want to follow their faith's rules -- to be certain that the animal has been slaughtered humanely with a knife to the throat, that the animal is pointed toward Mecca and that it dies as the slaughterer recites a prayer.

Since the 1980s, the number of goats slaughtered for their meat has more than quintupled, according to the U.S. Agriculture Department. Many of those goats are killed not in mass slaughterhouses but in quiet ceremonies on farms and in back yards. . .
Or the West Wing?
To avoid the messy nature of on-farm slaughter, many customers take home live animals and slaughter them in residential bathtubs and garages. "We hold the animal on the garage floor and make sure the blood goes into the drain or the bushes," said Waqar Farhat, who grew up slaughtering animals in the hallway of his home in Pakistan.

Some of Farhat's friends slaughter goats in their showers. "But they clean up very well afterwards," he said.
Oh, do they powerwash?

What religion do people think Obama really is? Poll: Growing Number Believe Obama Is Muslim

By the way, these are the last words all the animals hear from their human slaughterers:
"Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar: Allah is the greatest."

Varian Fry, known as the American Oskar Schindler

Thanks to China Confidential for this:

'American Schindler’ helped 4,000 Jews escape the Nazis

Neither side of the Palin controversy gets it. It’s not about persona, style, rhetoric, it’s about doing things. Even Palin supporters never mention the things that I’m about to mention here:

From a fisherman in Alaska:
The last 45 of my 66 years I’ve spent in a commercial fishing town in Alaska . I understand Alaska politics but never understood national politics well until this last year. Here’s the breaking point: Neither side of the Palin controversy gets it. It’s not about persona, style, rhetoric, it’s about doing things. Even Palin supporters never mention the things that I’m about to mention here.

1. Democrats forget when Palin was the Darling of the Democrats, because as soon as Palin took the Governor’s office away from a fellow Republican and tough SOB, Frank Murkowski, she tore into the Republican’s “Corrupt Bastards Club” (CBC) and sent them packing. Many of them are now residing in State housing and wearing orange jump suits The Democrats reacted by skipping around the yard, throwing confetti and singing, “la la la la” (well, you know how they are). Name another governor in this country that has ever done anything similar.

2. Now with the CBC gone, there were fewer Alaskan politicians to protect the huge, giant oil companies here. So she constructed and enacted a new system of splitting the oil profits called “ACES.” Exxon (the biggest corporation in the world) protested and Sarah told them, “don’t let the door hit you in the stern on your way out.” They stayed, and Alaska residents went from being merely wealthy to being filthy rich. Of course, the other huge international oil companies meekly fell in line. Again, give me the name of any other governor in the country that has done anything similar.

3. The other thing she did when she walked into the governor’s office is she got the list of State requests for federal funding for projects, known as “pork.” She went through the list, took 85% of the m and placed them in the “when-hell-freezes-over” stack. She let locals know that if we need something built, we’ll pay for it ourselves. Maybe she figured she could use the money she got from selling the previous governor’s jet because it was extravagant.

Maybe she could use the money she saved by dismissing the governor’s cook (remarking that she could cook for her own family), giving back the State vehicle issued to her, maintaining that she already had a car, and dismissing her State provided security force (never mentioning – I imagine – that she’s packing heat herself). I’m still waiting to hear the names of those other governors.

4. Now, even with her much-ridiculed “gosh and golly” mannerism, she also managed to put together a totally new approach to getting a natural gas pipeline built which will be the biggest private construction project in the history of North America. No one else could do it although they tried. If that doesn’t impress you, then you’re trying too hard to be unimpressed while watching her do things like this while baking up a batch of brownies with her other hand.

5. For 30 years, Exxon held a lease to do exploratory drilling at a place called Point Thompson. They made excuses the entire time why they couldn’t start drilling. In truth they were holding it like an investment. No governor for 30 years could make them get started. Then, she told them she was revoking their lease and kicking them out. They protested and threatened court action. She shrugged and reminded them that she knew the way to the court house. Alaska won again.

6. President Obama wants the nation to be on 25% renewable resources for electricity by 2025. Sarah went to the legislature and submitted her plan for Alaska to be at 50% renewable by 2025. We are already at 25%. I can give you more specifics about things done, as opposed to style and persona. Everybody wants to be cool, sound cool, look cool. But that’s just a cover-up. I’m still waiting to hear from liberals the names of other governors who can match what mine has done in two and a half years. I won’t be holding my breath.

By the way, she was content to return to AK after the national election and go to work, but the haters wouldn’t let her. Now these adolescent screechers are obviously not scuba divers. And no one ever told them what happens when you continually jab and pester a barracuda. Without warning, it will spin around and tear your face off. Shoulda known better.

You have just read the truth about Sarah Palin that sends the media, along with the democrat party, into a wild uncontrolled frenzy to discredit her. I guess they are only interested in skirt chasers, dishonesty, immoral people, liars, womanizers, murderers, and bitter ex-presidents’ wives.

So “You go, Girl.” I only wish the men in Washington had your guts, determination, honesty, and morals.

I rest my case. Only FOOLS listen to the biased media.

Help us send 100,000 "Thank You!" messages to former President George Bush for his patriotism and support of our military!

As 145 soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan walked through the double doors in Terminal D at DFW Airport last week for two weeks of R&R, they were greeted not only by their families, but by former president George Bush and his wife Laura.

AFA's long-time friend, Bert Brady, who helps coordinate the welcome home project to our troops coming home for furlough at Dallas Fort Worth airport sent us an amazing video of President Bush welcoming the troops.

Does President Obama know about the "6 mystery floors" planned for the Ground Zero Mosque?

Update: Rauf’s gang at the Cordoba Initiative tried to make their hidden website disappear. Of course, they weren’t successful; we’ve got the PDFs...

Ground Zero Mosque’s Hidden Websites: Follow the Shariah. . .
Follow the Shariah Index Project to solve the puzzle of the 6 mystery floors: We found two hidden websites with copiously deleted information, all about the Imam’s Cordoba Institute Shariah Index Project. . .

Numbered Documents, for everyone’s convenience!

Below, from the hidden websites, is the evidence Rauf tried to cover-up. We’ve even numbered the Shariah Index Project documents he mentioned, to make it easy for the Imam and his staff. . .

Let’s Review. All those numbers begin to add up:

The Ground Zero Mosque has at least 6 mystery floors. We suggest that they’ll be used by the Shariah Index Project.

The Shariah Index Project was built by at least 14 Shariah experts. We have the identities probably of 7 of them, and Rauf should reveal the other 7 right away.

The Shariah Index Project generated at least 16 documents and maybe a final book, and Rauf should release all of these – right away.

The issues at stake in the Ground Zero Mosque and the Shariah Index Project are not about Americans supporting the Constitution’s protection of religious freedom. Americans support that protection.

The issues at stake here are about Americans protecting the Constitution from Shariah-adherent groups using the protective guise of religious freedom to attack the Constitution itself – using a triumphal Ground Zero mosque as “the base” for a project to institutionalize Shariah in America.
Whenever Feisal first considered building a mosque across from Ground Zero, he had the idea firmly in mind by 2004, when he wrote What's Right with Islam. The book was translated into many languages. In Indonesia's Bahasa, its title translates as "The Call from the WTC Rubble." Rauf promoted the book in December 2007 at a Kuala Lumpur gathering of Hizb ut Tahrir – a terror outfit banned in Germany since 2003, and also outlawed in Bangladesh, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, Egypt, Tunisia, Turkey, and Saudi Arabia, among other places - and ideologically akin to the Muslim Brotherhood. Both seek to replace the U.S. Constitution with Islamic law [Sharia], and eventually impose Islam and Sharia law worldwide. Most North American Muslim Brotherhood organizations avoid widely publicizing that aim. The Hizb Ut Tahrir however, at a July 2009 Khalifah conference at a suburban Chicago Hilton, openly promised to replace capitalism with Islam and Sharia law.

Now, Imam Rauf is set to construct his dream project, wherefrom possibly the radical Islamists will start Islamization of America. This will not be a mere mosque, but a tower of terrorism to further flex the muscle of militant Islam right inside the heart of United States.

Hope Americans will realize this, before it is too late!

Islamo-Fascists to Build Mosque Steps Away from the 9/11 Site

In a stunning insult to the families of the 9/11 victims, Islamist scum are planning the construction of the Cordoba House, a mosque and cultural center. It will be built just steps from the 9/11 site where 3000 people lost their lives when jihadists flew planes into the Twin Towers.

Imam Feisel Abdul Rauf, who helped found the Cordoba Initiative following the 9/11 attacks, said the project is intended to foster better relations between the West and Muslims. We at Neville feel safer already

For those not in the know, Cordoba was the capital of the Islamic Emirate of Al-Andalus (Andalusia) in Spain, seized by Muslim invaders from Africa in 711 and recaptured by Spanish Christians under Ferdinand III of Castille in 1236. What better indication could there be of the Islamic intent to make America a Moslem Al-Andalus Emirate?

Islamo-Fascists to Build Mosque Steps Away from the 9/11 Site -- Pt. 2

The New York based Landmarks Preservation Commission has voted unanimously to deny landmark status to a building two blocks from the World Trade Center site that developers want to tear down and convert into an Islamic community center and mosque.

The decision has cleared the way for the Islamist scum, including CAIR, and the Islamic apologists and enablers on the left , to begin construction near Ground Zero.

The decision drew praise from the idiot Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who called the mosque project a key test of Americans' commitment to religious freedom. Bloomberg would have been very comfortable collaborating with the Nazis in WWII.

Obama Unmasked: Announces His Support of Ground Zero Victory Mosque has announced that our not-so-newly-minted Muslim President and Fraudinator-in-Chief's support for the Ground Zero Victory Mosque. What took you so long Barack? I guess you were waiting for the controversy to really heat up so that you could, once again, be on the wrong side of a clear majority of Americans.

Of course, this was perfectly predictable. After nineteen months of bowing to "kings" and dictators, blaming America for all of the evils in the is world, four Islamist attacks on U.S. soil, trying to have the KSM trial in N.Y., wrecking the economy by turning a mild recession into a prolonged one, why not slap the 9/11 families and the American people around a little more and poke a sharp stick in our eye.

Obama's not alone in this insanity. Mayor Bloomberg, NY Attorney General Cuomo and any number Democratic congressmen, many of them suicidal Jews, and Liberal commentators are falling all over themselves in their desire to "out-tolerance" the next one.

Oliver Stone Comes Out: Anti-Israel and Anti-Semitic

Oliver Stone's true colors finally emerged after years of anti-Americanism and acceptance by the morally perverse Hollywood community. He felt comfortable enough come out as a Jew hater that he always was. What a surprise. He's now right up there with Helen Thomas, Vanessa Redgrave and Jimmy Carter.

In an interview with The Sunday Times of London Oliver Stone said that Hitler caused more damage to the Russian people than to Jewish people, but that the American focus on the Holocaust stems from the "Jewish domination of the media."

Stone: "Hitler was a Frankenstein but there was also a Dr Frankenstein," Stone said "German industrialists, the Americans and the British. He had a lot of support...

"Hitler did far more damage to the Russians than to the Jewish people, 25 or 30 million killed."

You can feel it more and more…the elites don't care what you think or how you vote. And no matter how far our Fraudinator-in-Chief's poll numbers sink he keeps getting what he wants either by judicial or regulatory fiat, or Congressional chicanery due to the large Democrat majorities in Congress.

The country is coming to slow boil as the east and west coast elites remain locked in their ivory towers. Let them eat cake.

We are coming to a boil because of the $862 billion "stimulus" that turned into a welfare program for bankrupt states and public unions. We are coming to a boil because of the $700 billion TARP program that became a giant porkulus program for Democrats and their supporters. We are coming to a boil because of the job-killing duo of ObamaCare, jammed through Congress despite overwhelming opposition by the public at large, and financial reform (FinReg). Obama, Pelosi, Reid and company seem oblivious to the deep and lasting damage they're doing to America's economy.

Frederic Bastiat

When a reviewer wishes to give special recognition to a book, he predicts that it will still be read "a hundred years from now." The Law, first published as a pamphlet in June, 1850, is already more than a hundred years old. And because its truths are eternal, it will still be read when another century has passed.

Frederic Bastiat (1801-1850) was a French economist, statesman, and author. He did most of his writing during the years just before - and immediately following -- the Revolution of February 1848. This was the period when France was rapidly turning to complete socialism. As a Deputy to the Legislative Assembly, Mr. Bastiat was studying and explaining each socialist fallacy as it appeared. And he explained how socialism must inevitably degenerate into communism. But most of his countrymen chose to ignore his logic.

The Law is here presented again because the same situation exists in America today as in the France of 1848. The same socialist-communist ideas and plans that were then adopted in France are now sweeping America. The explanations and arguments then advanced against socialism by Mr. Bastiat are -- word for word -- equally valid today. His ideas deserve a serious hearing.

It's daunting, I tell you...daunting!

Obama sez: We're going to add 300,000 jobs a month over the next 3 years...uh huh

The Obama administration projects the unemployment rate will drop to 8.7% by the end of next year and 6.8% by 2013. That is totally unrealistic. It means we would have to add nearly 300,000 jobs a month over the next three years. At the rate we're going, it will take anywhere from six to nine years to climb out of this hole. The labor market may be improving, but the pace is glacial.
The End of American Optimism

I will say "amen"

Dear PowerLine:

Just read your moving tribute to Jimmy Webb (and Glen Campbell) which ends:
...Webb writes that he has been a fan of Campbell since he first heard "Turn Around and Look At Me" when he was 14. He says that he considers Campbell "the greatest natural entertainer and performer that America has ever produced."

"I used to literally pray that God would let me grow up and be a songwriter and be lucky enough to have Glen Campbell record one of my songs," Webb writes. "I rest my case for the existence of God." Will somebody say amen?
In the '60's I was attending the University of Hawaii (a Music Major and member of the Musicians Union from 1965).

I discovered Richard Harris and, Jimmy Webb...and played those albums over every day for a long time.

After having moved to L.A. (again) in the early '70's so my ex could go to law school at USC, I kept on playing and found myself in a group called "Green" (don't ask) being produced by Jimmy Webb at the infamous Record Plant. I thought I was in Heaven working with him, not to mention the single, crystalline comment forever enshrined in my memory: "I like the way you play piano."

US Government in Massive New Global Warming Scandal – NOAA Disgraced

Death O' the Dream

Jobless millions signal death of the American dream for many

You have to see it to believe it

Well, how interesting. Seems the U.S. Department of Justice has changed their website yesterday. Gone are the colorful red, white and blue U.S. flag decorations on the page, to be replaced by stark black and white.

And at the top of the page, is a rather interesting quote:
The common law is the will of mankind, issuing from the life of the people.
Catchy, huh? Just one tiny little point: The quote is from C. Wilfred Jenks who in the 1930's was a leading proponent of the "international law" movement which had as its goal to impose a global common law and which backed 'global workers rights'.

Call it Marxism, call it Progressivism, call it Socialism - under any of those names it definitely makes the DOJ look corrupt in their sleek, new black website with Marxist accessories to match.

Go here and see for yourself:

You can't make this stuff up. The Marxists are taking over our Federal Government and not even hiding it.

No wonder the DOJ sued Arizona for trying to uphold Constitutional law and enforcement against "foreign" invasion and ILLEGAL aliens. Under this radical regime's "common law", there is no such thing as illegal aliens.

Obama's ascent to power--ironically supported by nearly 80% of the American Jewish electorate--assured Iran that it would have ample time to acquire atomic arms.

From China Confidential
Are there any circumstances in which US President Barack Obama will order a military strike on Iran’s nuclear installations? ...

The answer is no.

For all intents and purposes, there are no circumstances in which Obama would order an attack on Iran’s nuclear installations to prevent Iran from developing and fielding nuclear weapons. Exceptions to this statement fall into two categories: Either they are so implausible that they are operationally irrelevant, or they are so contingent on other factors that they would doom any US attack to failure.

...having failed to contain Iran, the United States is concentrating on restraining Israel.

Obamanomics has done more than just keep unemployment high during a modest recovery. It may also be keeping high joblessness permanent by raising the costs to businesses of hiring new workers.

IBD: Jobbed In America

President Barack Obama on Friday endorsed a controversial plan to build a mosque and Islamic center just blocks from Ground Zero in Manhattan, despite the strong objections of conservatives, the ADL and those who lost loved ones in the September 11 attacks

If you've noticed any disappearing staffs recently in places you live, work, or frequent...

The economy is looking bleaker as new applications for jobless benefits rose last week to the highest level in almost six months. It's a sign that hiring remains weak and employers may be going back to cutting their staffs. . .

The rise in claims is a sign that private employers may be ramping up layoffs, which declined as recently as June, according to a separate government report released Wednesday. . .

Another possibility is that small companies, facing tight credit, are still reducing their staffs, even as larger corporations slowly resume hiring. . .

Some companies are still cutting workers. Medical products manufacturer CareFusion Corp. said Wednesday it plans to eliminate 700 jobs, saving the company up to $120 million a year. . .

The "Lawyer" Obama--what a joke!

From a former Chicago lawyer now practicing law in Tyler, TX:
This is legit. I checked it out myself at which stands for Illinois Attorney Registration And Disciplinary Committee. It’s the official arm of lawyer discipline in Illinois; and they are very strict and mean as hell. (Talk about irony!) Even I, at the advanced age of almost 65, maintain--at the cost of approximately $600/year--my law license that I worked so hard and long to earn.
Big surprise:

Former Constitutional Law Lecturer and US President Makes Up Constitutional Quotes During State Of The Union (SOTU) Address!

Consider this:

1. President Barack Obama, former editor of the Harvard Law Review, is no longer a “lawyer”. He surrendered his license back in 2008 in order to escape charges he lied on his bar application.

A “Voluntary Surrender” is not something where you decide “Gee, a license is not really something I need anymore, is it?” and forget to renew your license. No, a “Voluntary Surrender” is something you do when you’ve been accused of something, and you 'voluntarily surrender' your license five seconds before the state suspends you.

2. Michelle Obama “voluntarily surrendered” her law license in 1993.

3. So, we now have the first black President and First Lady — who don’t actually have licenses to practice law. Facts.


4. A senior lecturer is one thing...a fully ranked law professor is another. Barack Obama was NOT a Constitutional Law professor at the University of Chicago .

5. The University of Chicago released a statement in March, 2008 saying Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) “served as a professor” in the law school--but that is a title that Obama, who taught courses there part-time, never held, a spokesman for the school confirmed in 2008.

6. “He did not hold the title of "professor of law,” said Marsha Ferziger Nagorsky, an Assistant Dean for Communications and Lecturer in Law at the University of Chicago School of Law.


7. The former Constitutional senior lecturer cited the US Constitution the other night during his State of the Union Address. Unfortunately, the quote he cited was from the Declaration of Independence--not the Constitution.

8. The B-Cast posted the video:

9. Free Republic: In the State of the Union Address, President Obama said: “We find unity in our incredible diversity, drawing on the promise enshrined in our Constitution: the notion that we are all created equal..."

10. Um, wrong citing, wrong founding document there, Champ...I mean Mr. President. By the way, the promises are not a notion, our founders named them unalienable rights. The document is our Declaration of Independence and it reads:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

11. And this is the same guy who lectured the Supreme Court moments later in the same speech???

When you are a phoney it's hard to keep facts straight.

Team Obama sounds nothing so much as overmatched and overwhelmed, unable to understand what has gone wrong, and increasingly bitter toward the nation’s capital and the pace and nature of politics.

"...the impression Team Obama is trying to create — that no group has ever faced more challenges, more difficulties, or more hardships — is silly and somewhat pathetic."
What we are seeing, I think, is a group of supremely arrogant people humbled by events. They are turning out to be a good deal more incompetent than they (and many Americans) ever imagined. They see impending political doom in the form of the midterm elections. Yet this is not leading them toward any apparent serious self-reflection; rather, they are engaging in an extraordinary degree of whining, finger-pointing, and self-indulgence.

Obamacare will lead to the loss of millions of healthcare jobs before the end of the decade...

How will the US cope with the loss of millions of lucrative healthcare jobs, especially just when baby boomers are retiring, becoming Medicare eligible and in need of more medical care?

Can we continue to prosper as bad policies send high end healthcare jobs overseas? In one generation, we have seen manufacturing, phone answering, and computer programming outsourced, leading to growing trade deficits. The country which no longer makes its own tanks and ships will never be powerful. The country which cannot take care if it's sick, cannot remain a great nation.

Serious Questions Raised About Obama Tactics in 2008 Election

“I haven’t left the [Democrat] party yet, because I’m in to try to see if this is one last shot, that they could totally be heroic, unite the party, and address this. I know it’s a crazy hoop-dream, but I haven’t left the party yet. I definitely don’t believe in what—the great gifts we were given as people that came to this country. I don’t believe that it’s still there. I really am concerned about our voting. I really don’t feel we’re going to have—that our votes are ever going to be represented again if we, as people, don’t go, ‘Hey! You guys have to address this!’

Why did Obama spend more that $23 million of U.S. taxpayer money to influence voters in KENYA to pass the highly contentious constitution???

An investigation by three Republican congressmen has revealed the Obama administration has secretly spent $23 million of U.S. taxpayer dollars in Kenya to fund a "Yes" vote on a constitutional referendum scheduled for Aug. 4 that would increase access to abortions in Kenya and establish legal status for Islamic law tribunals.

Meanwhile, trusted sources in Kenya tell WND that the White House has used Vice President Joseph Biden's trip to Kenya in June and the office of U.S. Ambassador to Kenya Michael E. Ranneberger to put out the message that passage of the referendum would enable the White House to open the floodgates to allow millions of dollars of additional U.S. government aid and private investment capital to flow into Kenya.

Last week, in response to inquiries from Reps. Chris Smith, R-N.J., Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R-Fla., and Darrell Issa, R-Calif., the U.S. Agency for International Development admitted to spending more than $23 million of U.S. taxpayer money to influence voters in Kenya to pass the highly contentious constitution.

Soebarkah: President of the United States

Winston Churchill was accused of ordering a cover-up of a Second World War encounter between a UFO and a RAF bomber because he feared public "panic" and loss of faith in religion, newly released secret files disclose.

The former Prime Minister allegedly banned reporting of the “bizarre” incident, off the east coast of England, for half a century amid fears disclosures about unidentified flying objects would create public hysteria. He is said to have made the orders during a secret war meeting with US General Dwight Eisenhower, the then commander of the Allied Forces, at an undisclosed location in America during the latter part of the conflict.

The claims are contained in thousands of pages of declassified files on UFOs, released on Thursday online by the National Archives.

Obama's August surprise: will it work?

Rumors are running wild from Washington to Wall Street that the Obama administration is about to order government-controlled lenders Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to forgive a portion of the mortgage debt of millions of Americans who owe more than what their homes are worth. An estimated 15 million U.S. mortgages – one in five – are underwater with negative equity of some $800 billion. Recall that on Christmas Eve 2009, the Treasury Department waived a $400 billion limit on financial assistance to Fannie and Freddie, pledging unlimited help. The actual vehicle for the bailout could be the Bush-era Home Affordable Refinance Program, or HARP, a sister program to Obama’s loan modification effort. HARP was just extended through June 30, 2011.

The move, if it happens, would be a stunning political and economic bombshell less than 100 days before a midterm election in which Democrats are currently expected to suffer massive, if not historic losses. The key date to watch is August 17 when the Treasury Department holds a much-hyped meeting on the future of Fannie and Freddie. A few key points:

Arizona: A “Revolutionary” line in the sand?

By Doug Hagmann Tuesday, August 3, 2010
I believe that history will show that the passage of SB 1070 by Arizona, and the federal government’s lawsuit to stop its implementation will be regarded the first battle of the 21st century American Revolution. Although not a single shot was fired- yet, the battle lines have clearly been drawn. Never before in the modern history of our country have all of the elements been in place for a war between our government and the citizenry of the United States. We stand at a proverbial and historic flashpoint as Obama plans to use the foot soldiers created by “comprehensive immigration reform,” whether achieved by law or mandate, to implement his socialist agenda for America.

Tax reduction thus sets off a process that can bring gains for everyone, gains won by marshalling resources that would otherwise stand idle—workers without jobs and farm and factory capacity without markets. Yet many taxpayers seemed prepared to deny the nation the fruits of tax reduction because they question the financial soundness of reducing taxes when the federal budget is already in deficit. Let me make clear why, in today's economy, fiscal prudence and responsibility call for tax reduction even if it temporarily enlarged the federal deficit—why reducing taxes is the best way open to us to increase revenues.

UPDATED: FOIA documents reveal conflicting information for Obama's mother

Updated - Breaking News - 31 July 2010 - For Immediate Release - Some of Stanley Ann (Dunham) Obama Soetoro's Passport Application Records Are Released due to Strunk FOIA Filing
Some Stanley Ann Dunham passport file documents are released. Passport office implies in cover letter earliest passport application no longer exists. The earliest 1960/1961 passport application paper work information is missing from this released information. There is an application for amendment of her passport filed in 1965 due to her name change after marrying Lolo Soetoro at Molokai Hawaii on March 15, 1965 per page marked P3 of the released documents. Thus this tells us she had a passport prior to 1965, i.e., prior to marrying Lolo Soetoro. The carefully worded cover letter with the FOIA release implies earlier years records have been purged for some reason. Since passport records are filed in files by name and not in boxes or files by year, this does not make sense. It sounds to me like HI officials (or whoever controls them) are now instructing the U.S. Passport Office how to obfuscate and parse sentences in cover letters to allow them to not provide what one asks for and yet not be lying. There was obviously a passport issued to Stanley Ann (whatever name she used to get it) prior to 1965. I was under the impression that passport records kept and filed by name were kept virtually forever.
Some very interesting question are now raised:
  • One comment on this site says:
    The National Archives states on its website: "Passport applications can be an excellent source of genealogical information, especially about foreign-born individuals. The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) has passport applications from Oct. 1795-Mar. 1925; the U.S. Department of State has passport applications from Apr. 1925 to the present."

    If Ann's passport records were destroyed, then how do you explain the National Archives stating, "the U.S. Department of State has passport applications from Apr. 1925 to the present."
    Another comment says:
    One more thing: states:

    "Passport Records for Issuances 1925 – Present Requesting Your Own Record: Passport Services maintains United States passport records for passports issued from 1925 to the present."

    It doesn't sound like such records have ever been destroyed.
  • Why did she need a passport at age 18? (Listen to the Bill Cunningham Radio Show for how it was likely done.)
  • Also in this passport applications file is revealed the exact date of her marriage to Lolo Soetoro--but why are there two conflicting dates AND locations? Either way, each of the differing dates could have allowed for Obama to have been legally adopted by Lolo Soetoro in Hawaii at age 5 or under:
    Children legally adopted at age 5 and under have their new citizenship governed by the international Hague Convention Treaty on adopting children of which the USA is a signatory. That is likely why Obama alludes to his being age 6 when those Indonesian records are discussed in regards to when his step-father "adopted" him and saying that the adoption occurred in Indonesia.
  • FOIA documents "Amend to Include (Exclude) Children" contains the handwritten name of her son Barack Hussein Obama--but right below it a weird name or phrase spelled and in parenthesis as (Soebarkah) [Update: Elsewhere on the web this name is being spelled "Saebarkah"]... but then the whole thing is crossed off!

UPDATE: Inconsistencies found in passport applications released by State Department for Obama’s alleged mother...

UPDATE #2: Is liberal power elite ready to pull the plug on Obama and side with Hillary?
