Obama admits: not a "natural born citizen"

From Leo Donofrio at Natural Born Citizen:
Obama’s own web site, Fight The Smears, which states – at this moment in time –
“When Barack Obama Jr. was born on Aug. 4,1961, in Honolulu, Kenya was a British colony, still part of the United Kingdom’s dwindling empire. As a Kenyan native, Barack Obama Sr. was a British subject whose citizenship status was governed by The British Nationality Act of 1948. That same act governed the status of Obama Sr.‘s children.”
“Governed”…he was governed by the UK at birth… his choice of words… one is governed by that which one owes allegiance to, in his case, the Monarchy of the UK, and this was a matter of both UK and US law. Furthermore, this argument has also been thoroughly discussed and debunked at this blog on multiple occasions…read the following

The State Department Has “Always” Recognized And Abided By Foreign Laws Concerning US Citizens Born With Dual Nationality.

The Jay Treaty Strongly Indicates That Obama Is Not Eligible To Be President.

Furthermore, read the following historical discussions on the issue from main stream media sources:

New York Tribune 1896: Those born of non-citizen parents may not be eligible for POTUS.

The Boston Globe: “native born” does not equal “natural born” for Presidential eligibility.

Tales of the Left, 1969

From "Sunlight"...
The culture of death permeates the Left. I learned this at a young age.

In the spring of 1969 when I was a kid in high school I had a chance to meet a famous Leftist up close. It was Jerry Rubin of the Chicago 7, freshly famous from his disruption of the Democrat Party National Convention the previous summer. He was talking to a group of h.s. students, about a dozen of us. (I was curious about this nationally famous person.) He explained a new society where we could all share everything and get along in peace. I asked him straight on, what do we need to do to create this new thing? He answered me point blank, one on one, “Go home! Kill your parents! Burn down their house! Destroy theirs [sic] cars and all their money! After you’ve all done that, we can begin again. We can build a better world.”

Luckily for me I had a very wise and patient father who helped unscrew me.

Jerry Rubin had laid out the template for me in simplest terms. Control those who are born yesterday. Kill everybody else.

I believe to always look on the bright side
I believe that life is just one big ride
I believe when I die people will grieve
But it’s ok because I believe

Kayla Neil (26th July 1985 / Australia)

...but I DON'T believe that Obama's COLB (Certification of Live Birth) has the required raised seal!
For three years we’ve been told that Obama’s short form COLB has a raised seal…now they want us to believe that five high resolution photographs are all just amazing illusions that defy the properties of light and ask us not to believe our own eyes.
Clinging to Hopeandchange


Your money, your life...and what's coming your way through 2012

Brilliant know-nothing that I am, I'd always assumed that Jimmah Carter's Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) which passed in 1977 was somehow behind the horrific economic collapse of 2008 that, conveniently, pushed a Marxist into the White House for the first time in U.S. history.

Here's why you should believe it, too:
If you carefully run through these posts and the accompanying comments, I think you'll see that every argument raised by the "Defend CRA at all costs" crowd has been refuted.
Here's How The Community Reinvestment Act Led To The Housing Bubble's Lax Lending
UPDATE: Contrary to the Obama narrative, however, it is not free-market capitalism at the root of the current mortgage industry crisis, but rather the very socialism Obama hawks. The historical record makes this fact unmistakably clear.
But it ain't over yet folks, it's gonna be a bumpy ride:
Mark Mobius, executive chairman of Templeton Asset Management’s emerging markets group, said another financial crisis is inevitable because the causes of the previous one haven’t been resolved...
Stansberry Research, as usual, goes much deeper. Here are some brief excerpts:

The Beginning of the Panic
On June 30, the Federal Reserve has pledged to cease buying U.S. Treasury bonds. This is the second time since the financial crisis it has intervened in the Treasury market in a major way. The program of buying new Treasury issues has been dubbed "quantitative easing II" (QE2).

We'd wager not one in 1,000 Americans has any idea (or at least any real understanding) of what has been going on in the market for U.S. Treasury bonds since the financial crisis. For the last nine months, the Fed has been printing up new dollars and buying huge amounts of newly issued debt from the U.S. Treasury – $600 billion of bonds. And these purchases followed a $1.75 trillion program of quantitative easing that ran from March 2009 to March 2010.

It is no exaggeration to say that a printing press has kept our economy going for the last two years. But what will happen when the printing stops?
We Can't Borrow Forever...and We Can't Stop
President Obama's economic mandarins now forecast the fiscal year 2011 deficit will come in at $1.6 trillion.

To put this figure in perspective for you, when Ronald Reagan took office, the entire national debt totaled less than $1 trillion. Even as late as 2002, the national debt was only $6 trillion. Obama's administration will almost surely borrow more than $6 trillion in only his first term. In four years, Obama will double our entire national debt from its pre-financial crisis levels.

This has never happened in peacetime.
A Hard Reality
Rather than face these unpleasant facts and consider where they are leading us, most people continue to think, "It can't happen here, this is America."

Meanwhile, our country has been depending on a printing press to make our economic system work. When is the last time that happened in America? (Hint: the Civil War.)

How many other things most people didn't think would ever happen in America have happened recently? What about the collapse of our investment banks, the bankruptcy of General Motors, the liquidation of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the failure of AIG, hundreds of banks being seized, millions of homes in foreclosure, real unemployment rates close to 20%. We could go on.

As we frequently point out to our critics, the question isn't when this crisis will begin – it started in 2008. The question is, when will it end and how bad will it get before it does?
Two Secrets About U.S. Finances You Won't Read Anywhere Else
Most people misunderstand two things about the U.S. financial situation...

First, the U.S. government's official debt burden might not yet have reached the "red line" of imminent default. But our entire economy's enormous debt burden makes it nearly certain we will default on our federal debt and many of our private debts, too.

The U.S. is the world's largest debtor. As a whole, Americans owe a total of nearly $56 trillion dollars (almost 400% of GDP). That's federal, state, municipal, corporate, and private (mortgages and student loans) debts. The debt service on our total obligation is $3.6 trillion a year. It's hard to put that number into context because it's so large. Think about it this way – It's roughly the same amount of money as the federal government's entire budget.

To the extent our debts fueled past consumption (homes, cars, credit cards, health care, etc.), they are unlikely to spur future economic growth. That's not to mention a considerable portion of these payments belongs to foreign investors, folks who are typically more interested in building their next factory in Bangladesh than in Bangor.

When you combine this "debt tax" – aka interest – with the size of our actual tax burden (about $4.4 trillion when you combine federal taxes with state and local taxes), you can see pretty clearly why our economy is struggling.

We're spending half our annual GDP on taxes and interest.

Imagine if you had to spend half of your family's income on taxes and interest. How would you rate your credit risk? What's the likelihood of default in that scenario?

More important, given our current federal deficits and the looming entitlement crisis we face (total unfunded future liabilities in excess of $100 trillion)... How is it possible to expect Americans will be able to afford to pay more taxes? What would happen to our budget if interest rates rise because of inflation, which seems inevitable?

We don't think many Americans – even sophisticated investors – have considered these numbers. Our foreign creditors will realize they have no chance of being repaid in sound money. Americans simply cannot afford debt service, never mind principal repayment. There are signs they already recognize this...
The Dynamics of a Bond Market Collapse
By the end of 2012, our national debt will likely exceed $17 trillion. Let's assume our average interest increases to 4.4% – half the rate we believe investors will eventually demand. That works out to an annual interest expense of almost $750 billion. That's more than we spend on defense or Social Security. Interest expenses would leave the government spending almost 25¢ of every dollar on interest payments.

Does that sound wise or reasonable to you? Given these expenses, some of our creditors would become reluctant to "roll" our debt into the future by offering new loans. This could cause a serious problem for the U.S. Treasury. This is how the dollar dies.
Gambling on Short-Term Financing
Portugal's government recently suffered a debt default. The country required a bailout by the European Central Bank (ECB) because it had too much short-term debt coming due and not enough lenders were willing to extend these loans at affordable rates. Lots of economists criticized Portugal's borrowing strategy because much of its debts were short-term.

Apparently, these folks haven't bothered looking at the U.S. Treasury's debt maturity curve. We have. The numbers are so shocking, we expect most of our subscribers simply won't believe us. You can read all of the numbers for yourself, if you'd like. Bureau of the Public Debt includes all the numbers in its Financial Audit (which you can read on its website.

Feel free to read all 35 pages... Or focus on just this piece of data. It's all you really need to know: 61% of all the marketable Treasury debt held by the public will mature within four years. Thus, over the next four years, the U.S. Treasury must either repay or refinance more than $1 trillion in existing debt each year – not to mention additional deficit spending of at least $1.5 trillion. For us to avoid a default, the U.S. Treasury may have to borrow or refinance as much as $10 trillion in the next four years.

That would double the amount of U.S. Treasury bonds currently trading in the world's markets.

Think about that for a minute. Then, consider the decades-low yields in the Treasury market today, which would surely rise to accommodate this enormous increase in supply.

Now, try to arrive at any sort of scenario that ends well for today's U.S. Treasury bond market investors. We can't...
Keep in mind that these brief excerpts have a much broader context in the newsletter, and many more details, but I think they will give you an idea of what is coming.

Be prepared.

Nobody does it better than THE PATRIOT POST on Memorial Day

Memorial Day Special Edition · May 27, 2011

The Foundation
"I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. 'Tis the business of little minds to shrink; but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death." --Thomas Paine
Liberty
"As we turn the calendar's pages to yet another Memorial Day, I feel compelled to issue a ... challenge, one I offer not as a clergyman but as an American. Simply, let's not lose focus about what this most solemn of national holidays should really be about. Too often Americans view the Memorial Day holiday as a pleasant three-day weekend kicking off the summer, perhaps with the year's first trip to the beach or the lake. We are inclined to think of the Fourth of July as the highlight of the season, with parades and fireworks to renew our nation's dedication to the principles of liberty. But it's worth remembering that we are able to celebrate Independence Day only because of the sacrifices made by the men and women whose lives were cut short to advance those principles. Memorial Day is for honoring their supreme sacrifice. But what does that mean? It is not enough simply to bow our heads and note that more than a million men and women have given their lives so that we may be free. That reduces their sacrifice to mere statistics. The challenge for the living is to keep in mind what each of those individual sacrifices represented. Each soldier, sailor, airman, or marine who died in battle left behind loved ones who mourned their deeply personal loss. They were fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, childhood friends, relatives, neighbors, and members of the community. In giving their lives, they left unfulfilled dreams and ambitions to add to their loved ones' sorrows. That's a million instances of tremendous personal anguish. ... Nothing underscores the importance of liberty as much as the price paid for it. How else to explain the paradox that the price for freedom was so often paid for by those who willingly gave up their own? That sacrifice testifies to the extraordinary power of the ideal of freedom." --author and pastor Rev. Richard G. Lee
Thank You
"Alone, we stand as the shining beacon of liberty and freedom to the world. The freedoms we enjoy today have not come without a price and are too often taken for granted. Because of the brave men and women -- who, from the very start of our nation's existence, have worn the uniform of all branches of the military so we can live in freedom without fear -- we have the freedom to worship as we choose; vote as we choose; travel from one end of this great country to the other; and the opportunity to succeed or fail in pursuing our own individual versions of the American dream. Every American, especially our children, needs to understand and embrace the sacrifices of our soldiers, sailors, airmen, guardsmen, and marines -- and most importantly, what their families have endured, all to help preserve the promise of the American dream. At a military cemetery, there is no differentiation of politics, rank, color, or gender -- just men and women who had the honor to wear the uniform of the United States of America. For it is at this final resting place that one of our Founding Fathers' principles, 'All Men Are Created Equal,' truly comes to life. ... To those of every generation who made that commitment, the commitment to duty, honor, and country, we say: Thank you!" --author Tom Ruck

Insight
"I have only two men out of my company and 20 out of some other company. We need support, but it is almost suicide to try to get it here as we are swept by machine gun fire and a constant barrage is on us. I have no one on my left and only a few on my right. I will hold." --1st. Lt. Clifton B. Cates, Navy Cross, 2 Distinguished Service Crosses, (later Commandant), USMC, July 19, 1918 commanding 96 Company, 6th Marines, near the French town of Soissons
"Casualties: many, Percentage of dead: not known, Combat efficiency: we are winning." --Colonel David M. Shoup, USMC, MOH, (later Commandant) Tarawa, Nov. 21, 1943
"We fight not for glory, nor for riches, nor for honour, but only and alone for Freedom, which no good man lays down but with his life." --Declaration of Arbroath, Scotland, 1320
"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things; the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks nothing worth a war, is worse. A man who has nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety is a miserable creature who has no chance at being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself." --British philosopher John Stuart Mill
"Our debt to the heroic men and valiant women in the service of our country can never be repaid. They have earned our undying gratitude; American will never forget their sacrifice." --President Harry S. Truman
"They fought together as brothers-in-arms, they died together, and now they sleep side by side. To them we have a solemn obligation." --Admiral Chester Nimitz
The American Soldier
"[W]hat sort of soldiers are those you are to lead? Are they reliable? Are they brave? Are they capable of victory? Their story is known to all of you. It is the story of the American man-at-arms. My estimate of him was formed on the battlefield many, many years ago, and has never changed. I regarded him then as I regard him now -- as one of the world's noblest figures, not only as one of the finest military characters, but also as one of the most stainless. His name and fame are the birthright of every American citizen. In his youth and strength, his love and loyalty, he gave all that mortality can give. ... [W]hen I think of his patience under adversity, of his courage under fire, and of his modesty in victory, I am filled with an emotion of admiration I cannot put into words. He belongs to history as furnishing one of the greatest examples of successful patriotism. He belongs to posterity as the instructor of future generations in the principles of liberty and freedom. He belongs to the present, to us, by his virtues and by his achievements. In twenty campaigns, on a hundred battlefields, around a thousand campfires, I have witnessed that enduring fortitude, that patriotic self-abnegation, and that invincible determination which have carved his statue in the hearts of his people. From one end of the world to the other he has drained deep the chalice of courage. I do not know the dignity of their birth, but I do know the glory of their death. They died unquestioning, uncomplaining, with faith in their hearts, and on their lips the hope that we would go on to victory. Always for them: Duty, Honor, County; always their blood and sweat and tears, as we sought the way and the light and the truth." --General Douglas MacArthur
The Gipper
"Here, in this place where the West held together, let us make a vow to our dead. Let us show them by our actions that we understand what they died for. Let our actions say to them the words for which [General] Matthew Ridgway listened: 'I will not fail thee nor forsake thee.' Strengthened by their courage and heartened by their valor and borne by their memory, let us continue to stand for the ideals for which they lived and died." --President Ronald Reagan, 40th anniversary of D-Day, Pointe du Hoc, Normandy, France, June 6, 1984
The Last Word
"Lord, guard and guide the men who fly
And those who on the ocean ply;
Be with our troops upon the land,
And all who for their country stand:
Be with these guardians day and night
And may their trust be in Thy might." --Author Unknown, 1955

Israel matters

As the stunning and overwhelming response to Prime Minister Netanyahu in Congress showed, Israel matters in American politics like almost no other country on earth. Well beyond the American Jewish and the Protestant fundamentalist communities, the people and the story of Israel stir some of the deepest and most mysterious reaches of the American soul. The idea of Jewish and Israeli exceptionalism is profoundly tied to the idea of American exceptionalism. The belief that God favors and protects Israel is connected to the idea that God favors and protects America.

It means more. The existence of Israel means that the God of the Bible is still watching out for the well-being of the human race. For many American Christians who are nothing like fundamentalists, the restoration of the Jews to the Holy Land and their creation of a successful, democratic state after two thousand years of oppression and exile is a clear sign that the religion of the Bible can be trusted.

Being pro-Israel matters in American mass politics because the public mind believes at a deep level that to be pro-Israel is to be pro-America and pro-faith. Substantial numbers of voters believe that politicians who don’t ‘get’ Israel also don’t ‘get’ America and don’t ‘get’ God. Obama’s political isolation on this issue, and the haste with which liberal Democrats like Nancy Pelosi left the embattled President to take the heat alone, testify to the pervasive sense in American politics that Israel is an American value. Said the Minority Leader to the Prime Minister: “I think it’s clear that both sides of the Capitol believe you advance the cause of peace.”

AGENDA 21

An event in support of the AFA summer conference

Big Footprint: Is Green the New Tyranny?
Sunday June 12- Monday, June 13, 2011
Agenda 21 is the United Nations' initiative to control the world's resources under the pretext of environmental protection. Employing counterfeit science, it declares that a planetary catastrophe
resulting from human activity is well underway and that it can only be arrested by the surrender of material comforts, reduced energy consumption and a transfer of wealth. Agenda 21 has proliferated countless unelected bodies worldwide that dictate so-called environmental policy to governments, locally, nationally and internationally. With patient, incremental steps, often advancing beneath the radar of public awareness, Agenda 21 is the gradual implementation of global government, often referred to by its advocates as "The New World Order." It seeks to dissolve the nation state, eliminate private property, and curtail individual freedom. Ultimately it envisions absolute control over every aspect of our lives.


Rep. Anthony Weiner was not only sending tweets and pictures of his penis to college coeds in Seattle and blaming it on a mysterious hacker, he was also sending tweets to porn stars...

Put this Weiner (D) on a toasted bun and call it Yankee Doodle! GateWayPundit

UPDATE: Weiner's luscious Twitter fans...lots of 'em!

For our military and our veterans (UPDATED)

Since I started blogging in 2006, I began collecting a lot of links (which I try to update frequently) and I've moved the "Military" links up to the top right for Memorial Day.

There's a lot of really great resources for active duty military and for vets as well.

UPDATE: Thanks to Hugh Hewitt's article today -- Memorial Day, 2011 and helping those who serve -- I was able to add several more really great military resources to my collection!

Not sure why this one changed, but you know who's President now:

What happened to the America Supports You Program?
The spirit and intent of the America Supports You Program continues. The Department of Defense (DoD) uses www.OurMilitary.mil to highlight and communicate our country’s support for our military and their families. However, the DoD has relinquished all rights and ownership of the America Supports You name and logos.

During the 2004 presidential election, I practically lived on this site. Viper has the best looking Vietnam Vets page around.

There are several sites here like Operation Gratitidue which make a huge difference to those serving overseas and there's even a social networking site called Together We Served:
As the largest exclusively military network of its type, run by military for military, Together We Served enables veterans and active duty personnel to re-connect with lost brothers and sisters, share in the camaraderie of other servicemen and women, and create a permanent record of their service so this may never be forgotten.
If you know of any other sites that I've missed, please post a comment and let me know.

It's so hard to think of the millions of men and women who are heroes but whose names or lives we will never know. We just have to thank them all and pray for them in spirit and be grateful that they loved our country and our way of life enough to serve and protect.

Krauthammer: What Obama did to Israel

Washington Post:
Three times the Palestinians have been offered exactly that formula, 1967 plus swaps — at Camp David 2000, Taba 2001, and the 2008 Olmert-Abbas negotiations. Every time, the Palestinians said no and walked away.

And that remains their position today: The 1967 lines. Period.

MYSTERY: 9 of the 10 costliest insurance events in U.S. history followed dramatic calls by U.S. officials for Israel to make land concessions in bids for peace with its neighbors

...six of the seven costliest hurricanes in U.S. history followed such events...three of the four largest tornado outbreaks in U.S. history followed such developments.

Earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes, even terrorist attacks have hit America often within 24 hours of calls by U.S. officials for Israel to withdraw from Jewish land.

Guess what is bringing Republicans and Democrats together...even Nancy Pelosi and John Boehner?

President Obama and his education secretary are facing a bipartisan revolt from almost 300 lawmakers, an inspector general's investigation and several lawsuits over a proposed crackdown on for-profit colleges, which train people for jobs ranging from plumbers to computer technicians.
Now, why wouldn't Obama want people to train themselves for jobs, period...especially ones that would make them productive and independent people with skills unlike him and his ilk who occupy the exalted heights of academia (and who are currently completely wrecking the economy of this country)?
"There seems to be a big urgency here to go after for-profit colleges who educate a high number of African-American and Hispanic people in our communities," Harry Alford, the head of the National Black Chamber of Commerce, told Fox News. "And for some reason, it's full speed ahead."

EGYPT: THE NEW NAZI PARTY

The question was never whether or not a seal appears on the copies of President Obama’s birth certificate – that’s just how ‘the other side’ framed our question.

Not A Single Senator Supports Barack Obama's Budget
The Democratic Senate has not come up with a budget in two years, thereby violating federal law. President Obama has not proposed a replacement for his laughable FY 2012 budget, which not a single member of Congress is willing to support. The Democrats have no budget; no plan; no path out of the fiscal disaster into which they have led the United States. They are bystanders and political opportunists, utterly unfit to govern.

YWCA: Top Down, Bottom Up

The YWCA General Assembly voted by 91% on May 3, 2009, to revise the YWCA mission statement to the following:

YWCA is dedicated to eliminating
racism, empowering women and
promoting peace, justice, freedom
and dignity for all.

2001
Steps to Absolute Change was adopted. The YWCA shifted from a top down to a bottom up grassroots organization. Local associations joined regions and elected their regional representatives to the National Coordinating Board

Legal proof that President Obama’s Certificate of Live Birth is a forgery

Dear Sir/Madam,

I have irrefutably proven that the Certificate of Live Birth that President Obama presented to theworld on April 27, 2011 is a fraudulently created document put together using the Adobe Photoshopor Illustrator programs and the creation of this forgery of a public document constitutes a class Bfelony in Hawaii and multiple violations under U.S. Code section Title 18, Part 1, Chapter 47,Sec.1028, and therefore an impeachable offense. When this comes to the public’s attention, it will bethe greatest scandal in the country’s history—nothing comes even close. This will surpass the all previous scandals including the Watergate scandal of the Nixon administration.

My Credentials

I have a unique background for analyzing this document. I owned a typesetting company for 11 years so I know type and form design very well. I currently own Archive Index Systems since 1993,which sells all types of document scanners worldwide and also developed document imagingsoftware (TheRepository). I know how the scanners work.

The Exodus Song



Herman Cain...not ready for prime time

While browsing www.memeorandum.com I came across this, from (hold nose) Think Progress:
But this morning on Fox News Sunday, Cain showed just how limited his understanding is of the Middle East peace process. Asked by host Chris Wallace what he would be prepared to offer Palestinians as part of a deal, Cain responded, “Nothing.” Just moments later, Cain was dazed and confused when Wallace referenced the issue of “right of return” of Palestinian refugees:

WALLACE: Where do you stand on the right of return?

CAIN: The right of return? [pause] The right of return?

WALLACE: The Palestinian right of return.

CAIN: That’s something that should be negotiated. That’s something that should be negotiated.

Wallace then helpfully offered Cain a definition of “right of return” — “Palestinian refugees, the people that were kicked out of the land in 1948, should be able to or should have any right to return to Israeli land.” Cain again showed his lack of knowledge, veering completely off his pro-Likud script. “I don’t think they have a big problem with people returning,” Cain said.
Sad, but true...

Congressman Allen West Response to President Barack Obama's Call for a Two State Solution in Israel

5/19/11: (WASHINGTON) Congressman Allen West (FL-22) released this statement today:


"Today's endorsement by President Barack Obama of the creation of a Hamas-led Palestinian state based on the pre-1967 borders, signals the most egregious foreign policy decision his administration has made to date, and could be the beginning of the end as we know it for the Jewish state.


From the moment the modern day state of Israel declared statehood in 1948, to the end of the 1967 Six Day War, Jews were forbidden access to their holiest site, the Western Wall in Jerusalem's Old City, controlled by Jordan's Arab army.


The pre-1967 borders endorsed by President Obama would deny millions of the world's Jews access to their holiest site and force Israel to return the strategically important Golan Heights to Syria, a known state-sponsor of terrorism.


Resorting to the pre-1967 borders would mean a full withdrawal by the Israelis from the West Bank and the Jewish neighborhoods of East Jerusalem. Make no mistake, there has always been a Nation of Israel and Jerusalem has been and must always be recognized as its rightful capital.


In short, the Hamas-run Palestinian state envisioned by President Obama would be devastating to Israel and the world's 13.3 million Jews. It would be a Pavlovian style reward to a declared Islamic terrorist organization, and an unacceptable policy initiative.


America should never negotiate with the Palestinian Authority- which has aligned itself with Hamas. Palestine is a region, not a people or a modern state. Based upon Roman Emperor Hadrian's declaration in 73 AD, the original Palestinian people are the Jewish people.


It's time for the American people to stand by our strongest ally, the Jewish State of Israel, and reject this foreign policy blunder of epic proportions.


While the winds of democracy may blow strong in the Middle East, history has demonstrated that gaps in leadership can lead to despotic regimes. I have questions for President Obama: 'Who will now lead in Egypt?' and 'Why should American taxpayers provide foreign aid to a nation where the next chapter in their history may be the emergence of another radical Islamic state?'


President Obama has not stood for Israel or the Jewish people and has made it clear where the United States will stand when Palestine attempts to gain recognition of statehood by the United Nations. The President should focus on the real obstacle to security- the Palestinian leadership and its ultimate goal to eliminate Israel and the Jewish people."

WND: Researcher who suspects forgery finds possible reason for Obama registration number

The Mother of All Jihadist Jokes

Two Middle Eastern mothers are sitting in a café chatting over a plate of tabouli and a pint of goat’s milk.

The older one pulls out photos of her children and shows them to the younger one.

“This is my oldest son, Mujibar. He would have been 24 years old. He’s a martyr now.”

The other says, “Yes, I remember when he was young, so sorry for your loss”.

“And this is my second son, Khalid. He would have been 21” says the older mom.

“Oh yes, he had curly hair, I remember him” says the other mom.

“He’s a martyr now too”.

“Oh, so sad dear” says the younger mom.

“And this is my third son, my baby, my beautiful Ahmed. He would have 18.”

“Yes, I remember when he started school” says the younger one.

The older mom, with tears in her eyes, says, “He is a martyr now too.”

The younger one looks wistfully at the photographs and sighs deeply, searching for just the right comforting words, and says, “They blow up so fast, don’t they?”

Study finds Americans (Obama) spent almost a trillian dollars to destroy more than half a million jobs!

Way to go, Democrats.
So the American people borrowed and spent close to a trillion dollars to destroy a net of more than one-half million jobs. Does President Obama understand this? I very much doubt it. When he expressed puzzlement at the idea that the stimulus money may not have been well-spent, and said that "spending equals stimulus," he betrayed a shocking level of economic ignorance.

You might ask, why would anyone believe that anyone can beat the president? The killing of America’s most wanted terrorist three weekends ago produced the predictable spike in the polls. But, for Mr. Obama, predictability is the problem. We have all been that way before. George H.W. Bush won an entire war and saw his numbers go to nearly unanimous approval levels. Yet he lost the next election to a candidate running on the unofficial slogan of “It’s the economy, Stupid.”

Reality Show: It's Over


I've come to realize that we are in the middle of a live coup d'état, a reality show that's been in pre-production for many, many years, but which is now achieving super-sonic dimensions that may, simply, overcome our beloved country like a Japense tsunami.
Akira Suto, a 55-year-old construction worker, said he can't forget the wall of icy ocean water as it pitched him head over heels, breaking his grip on his 82-year-old mother as the pair ran from their home, trying to flee.
"It's over,"
his mother gasped, before she was dragged away by the waves, he said. Her body still hasn't been recovered.

Fateful Choice on a Day of Disaster
If Obama is re-elected in 2012, "It's over."

And it's not just me saying that, either. Mark Levin, and others, have said that more than once.

On Friday, May 6th we learned that
President Obama has officially kicked off his 2012 re-election campaign, and don't Republicans know it. The president is expected any day now to sign an executive order that routs 70 years of efforts to get politics out of official federal business.

Obama's Gangster Politics"

It's chilling to watch the graphics of two parallel dimensions as they play out in real time...the one where Obama's adoring and obviously uninformed devotees worship and cheer him on and the other where serious news outlets are reporting the same heart-rending news of a megalomaniac gone wild in the most powerful position on earth:
Obama's Gangster Politics
Supporters are bragging the campaign may break the $1 billion threshold, money that will go even further if the White House can simultaneously use its executive order to dry up Republican donations.

And, he didn't.

Our transformational terminator hasn't stopped for a minute. Like a swarm of termites, the Obama regime might leave the shell of our homeland standing for awhile after they've gutted the insides...but not for long.

The campaign (as in a war) is meant to take him over the goal-line when, in 2014, Obamacare has finally kicked in for good.
...the individual mandate is not the only provision in Obamacare that violates the Constitution. It also violates the Tenth Amendment and limits on Congressional power under the Constitution’s Spending Clause...Regardless of whether it is constitutional, Obamacare is also harmful to the economy, medical innovation, and the health care system. Earlier, I discussed some of the bad effects of Obamacare on patients, employers, consumers, and the insurance market.

CEI Files Another Amicus Brief Challenging Obamacare
Obama doesn't "govern" in the tradition of American presidents, he careens between "transforming" the United States of America and campaigning to get re-elected in 2012.

The 2011 Pulitzer Prize-winning Chicago Sun-Times:
There’s one more bit of potential White House politicking worth noting. The president is considering issuing an executive order requiring federal contractors to find out and report the political contributions of its directors and officers. The White House says the issue is transparency, but clearly such an order carries the potential for mischief. Image if, a couple of years ago, President Bush had demanded that private companies doing business with the federal government report political donations? Liberals would have accused him of trying to compile an enemies list.

Obama’s idea raises red flags even among Democrats. The No. 2 Democrat in the House, Rep. Steny Hoyer of Maryland (home to many federal contractors), sees “some serious questions as to what implications there are if somehow we consider political contributions in the context of awarding contracts.”

This is the “transformation” Obama promised — the Hope and Change on offer from a Good Man who, by force of executive order and imperial overreach, is working to turn each and every one of us into clients of a massive centralized government managed by endless bureaucratic rules and regulations whose reach covers everything from puddles to dust to human exhalation to light bulbs to toilets to mandating what we purchase (and, as a result, mandating all sort of other things in the future, from what we need eat to maintain our “free” health care to where unions demand we open our businesses to the “social justice” agenda of the left that requires banks to “lend” money to those who can’t pay that money back as a condition of doing business).

We need to know where Obama was on November 4, 1999

Good question...

How can God be all-powerful and still allow evil?

If God is all-powerful, aren’t we all just little chess men being moved around on a chess board?

First, we have to pin down the concept of free will. Because God LOVES His creation, most especially sentient beings, He gave all sentient beings FREE WILL. He didn’t want us to be his “toys”, because toys are mere objects. Instead, He created us as SUBJECTS. He wants to interact with us and have a dynamic relationship with us. The way He did this was to bestow upon us individual sovereignity – or free will. We can choose. We can, through our decisions and actions, alter the timeline. In fact, every decision and action we take does just that. As we travel through linear time, we are constantly shaping and directing how the timeline unfolds.

Now a quick point about these “sentient beings” that God created. There are two populations within that set. The first is human beings, who are spirits joined to a body. We are BODY-PERSONS. The other population is referred to as “angels”. Yes, angels are very real, as Our Lord makes SPECIFIC reference to them in the Gospels numerous times. Angels are PURE SPIRIT. They do not have physical bodies. They have, on occasion, made themselves manifest to people by taking on the appearance of a body, but that is just an illusion for our benefit. They are pure spirit. Satan is in this population, along with what we call “demons”. These are pure spirits who chose to rebel against God. Why did they rebel? Angels exist, like God, outside of time. They saw that it was God’s will, one way or another, to take on Human Flesh so that He could love us AS one of us. A certain percentage of the angels were repulsed by this – repulsed at the idea of bowing down and worshiping a mere Man, even if that Man was God, and so they rebelled. Since God made them free sovereigns, they were permitted to do this. Think about it. If God just started snuffing beings out of existence when they made a choice that wasn’t in accord with His will, wouldn’t that cheapen all life and existence to the point of meaninglessness? Wouldn’t all beings just be mere object-playthings at that point? Yep. Love means putting up with the periodic horseshit behavior of the beloved. Most ESPECIALLY for God.

So that explains how evil entered into the world and is allowed to persist. Now a little recreational physics. I have always LOVED physics, even though my math education was horrible. When I was in the 8th grade, my grandmother bought Steven Hawking’s “A Brief History of Time” for me with her senior discount card at Waldenbooks. I was in heaven. One of the concepts that Hawking explained was the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle. In a nutshell, the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle states that we can never know the exact position AND velocity of any particle, because in order to observe a particle, you have to bounce a photon off of it – which then alters its position and velocity. Now, you might think that is no big deal, but it is a HUGE deal. You’re just going to have to take my word for this for the moment, but what this means is that when a particle travels from point A to point B, it traverses EVERY POSSIBLE PATH SIMULTANEOUSLY. I’m not kidding. This is experimentally proven.

What does this have to do with God and free will? God in His omniscience knows and sees not only the Real Timeline, which is the result of all of our individual decisions, but he also knows and sees all of the “Heisenberg Timelines” which are constantly and infinitely shooting and branching off from the Real Timeline. In other words, the Heisenberg Timelines are the timelines that WOULD have happened IF we had made a different choice. When we say that God is INFINITE and ALL-KNOWING, we really don’t comprehend the real scope of what we are saying. Infinite means infinite – not limited in any way. Hence, the infinite number of Heisenberg Timelines fit very easily into that set.

What God does is constantly reset His Perfect Will after every decision every person makes. He always has a clearly defined Will, which is always for the perfect good, given the timeline up to that point. Let’s say that right now in this moment His will is for Ann to do action Y, which is in accord with His Perfect Will, but I instead choose to do action Z. After I choose and execute action Z, He adjusts His Perfect Will to a new set given action Z. If action Z was a sin, His new Perfect Will now includes that I confess and repent of that sin, but the timeline continues given the reality of Action Z, which I freely chose. If I choose action Y, no adjustment is made on His part, because I have acted in accordance with His Perfect Will, and the timeline likewise continues. I cannot emphasize enough the infinite love, patience and condescension we are talking about here. There just aren’t words.

So what we see is that God is in an unending dance of love manifested in freedom with all of us. His Will is always for perfect good, but in His love for us, He allows us to act freely, and then in His Mercy, He resets according to our choices. He allows us to, in a sense, cooperate with Him in authoring reality. This is why wonderful things tend to come out of bad situations. Think of all of the husbands and wives who have met and fallen in love . . . because of a war. How many times have you heard a person recall a terrible childhood, or a terrible accident, and then say, “. . . .but I wouldn’t change a thing.” Now you know why. Does God ever enter into the timeline and “nudge” events? Oh, yes. Many times these “nudges” are barely perceptible and exist almost entirely within the conscious or sub-conscious mind. But He does also on occasion physically enter into spacetime to nudge the timeline, and those instances are called “miracles”.

And yes, He is managing to do all this while driving 1.659 novemdecillion fusion reactions per second.

“For My thoughts are not your thoughts: nor your ways My ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are exalted above the earth, so are My ways exalted above your ways, and My thoughts above your thoughts.” Isaiah 55:8-9

BLIND POST: China’s Barbaric Cruelty to Animals

This troubling and shocking article has been written as an exclusive for VFR. It could be subtitled: A Dog’s View of Multicultural Relativism.
China’s Cruelty by Spencer Warren.

I'm sorry: I can't read it. I'm posting it as a public service, but I haven't read it. Just can't.

There have been some things I've read in the past about animals that have left me completely dysfunctional for days/weeks. I hate to even bring it up because whatever it is that I've "been through" was NOTHING compared to the real suffering of the animals.

BTW, I also feel this way about cruelty to children...and cruelty, period. But there is something about the helplessness and dependency of animals and children that makes it even worse.

The Fair Tax Act versus A Personal Accounts Plan (for Laymen)

by Dick McDonald
Ownership Society Institute
www.RiseUpAmerica.us

Rather than get into too many complicated inter-related issues, I am writing this to make crystal clear the main (but not all) of the differences between the highly touted Fair Tax plan and the less understood personal account plan I am supporting and writing about in my book “Make the Poor Rich.”

The Fair Tax Plan

The Fair Tax Plan is very attractive. It scraps all Federal taxes and replaces them with a 23% consumption tax. It eliminates the IRS. It eliminates the need to file income, estate, gift, excise and payroll tax returns. The Fair Tax abolishes them all. Your yearly trek to your tax accountant is eliminated and H&R Block evaporates. No need for copious tax receipts and support; all that is eliminated. Tax cheats who failed to pay their taxes in order to buy more stuff get caught in buying that stuff because the Fair Tax is a consumption tax.

The Fair Tax is based on the assumption that it is fairer to tax consumption than net taxable income which is based on ability to pay. The richer you are the more you pay in our 93-year old system. The Fair Tax doesn’t care how rich or poor you are it just imposes the tax on the new products you buy. It rebates (called a pre-bate) the 23% tax on the necessities the poor buy and exempts them completely from tax as the payroll tax will have been abolished. This is a good thing for the poor, but hardly a bonanza as they are prone to consume every dollar they get.

Under the Fair Tax the rich guy pays nothing except the 23% tax on that which he personally consumes. As he has most everything already, the portion of his income and wealth spent on taxable consumables will only be a fraction of the percentage the poor and middle class spend on taxable consumables. Granted the rich man will invest in the market and create jobs and economic activity which will up overall consumption. That is a good thing but I’m afraid the ordinary taxpayer will complain that the rich get richer under such a plan and the poor and middle class stand still and pay the freight.

The Personal Account Plan

This tax reform ”personal account” plan eliminates all payroll taxes going to the government and diverts them (the 15% which is already withheld) into a taxpayer’s own personal investment account to grow over his 40-year working life by compounding into a sizeable nest egg. As compared to the Fair Tax, the account cannot be reached until retirement as the plan calls for the transfer of the funding of retirement from the government to the individual and the government doesn’t want to have people be irresponsible and spend all their savings and come back as a ward of the state. The nest egg is sufficient in size that just the income off the nest egg will provide the retiree with an affluent retirement. At death, his sizeable estate can be passed on to his children. No other taxes are repealed. However with the repeal of the payroll tax, half of the national budget is eliminated and the need for half the taxes. As those taxes are invested in the economy a substantial increase in economic activity is anticipated.

Comparison of Some of the Features:
  • Simplicity

    Nothing beats the Fair Tax for simplicity. It eliminates and abolishes all Federal taxes and replaces them with one simple consumption tax. It eliminates the need for a sizeable IRS. It reduces the need for complicated accounting and supporting documents. It eliminates the need for tax returns and the complicated determination of taxable income. Nothing could be simpler than the Fair Tax.

    By comparison there would be more complications with a personal account as all taxes stay the same and payroll taxes still have to be determined and paid into an individual’s personal account. In the present Social Security system the government takes care of funding retirement and old-age medical needs. Under personal accounts this responsibility falls on an individual’s shoulders.
    Advantage: Fair Tax
  • Limiting the Size of Government

    The Fair Tax would substantially reduce the Government’s need to administer so many taxes but HR 25, its empowering legislation, makes this “consumption tax” revenue neutral. In laymen’s terms that means that if the government collected $2.8 Trillion in Federal taxes in 2006, the Fair Tax would be designed to tax the “consumables” subject to this Fair Tax so as to collect $2.8 Trillion in 2006. Therefore it doesn’t limit the size of government to any significant extent. Politicians would still retain the right to allocate that $2.8 trillion of tax receipts at their whim.

    The personal account plan would cut the Federal government in half. The Federal budget would fall from $2.8 Trillion to $1.4 Trillion overnight. As the government would no longer be charged with the responsibility of funding retirement and old-age medical needs, it no longer would be in the entitlement business. It would no longer be playing nanny to its citizens.
    Advantage: Personal Accounts
  • Tax Cuts

    As the Fair Tax is revenue neutral, its imposition would not cut the nation’s tax burden. It would merely shift that burden among the various classes of taxpayers. The poor would be exempt from all taxes and the wealthy exempt from income, dividend and capital gains from which most of their wealth presently flows. Those whose income is spent on consumption over the poverty line would be hardest hit. However, as the Fair Tax is not designed to cut taxes, it is not a vehicle for tax cuts.

    As far as tax cuts are concerned, the imposition of full-blown personal account legislation would result in the biggest tax cut in the history of the planet. Eliminating the need for government to fund retirement and old-age medical costs would result in a $1.4 Trillion tax cut.. Unfortunately for those who want to spend their tax cuts now, that money will be put away for them to grow into millions over the years and will not be immediately available. They will be able to direct their investment into pre-designed indexed funds but that is all. Still it is a massive tax cut.
    Advantage: Personal Accounts
  • Cost and Logistics of Transition and Implementation

    The cost and logistics of transitioning to the Fair Tax would be daunting logistically but not too costly. As the plan is revenue neutral, the federal government would still be raking in the same dough; they would just be in a scramble as to whose ox is gored changing job descriptions and desks.

    The transition to a full-blown personal account modality would be painful to those who look at the problem linearly. Today the payroll tax receipts are used to pay retirees. Upon implementation of personal accounts that source of funding disappears as those funds will be placed in personal accounts. The question then becomes how do we fund the benefits of those in the system now and those whose accounts won’t have sufficient time to mature into sufficiently large nest eggs.

    In my book, “Make the Poor Rich,” I have at least eight methods to easily accomplish this. None may be needed, however, if history repeats itself. In the 1980s when Reagan cut the tax rate from 70% to 28% the result was that government “income” tax revenues doubled because of increased economic activity. If that happens again and there is good reason to believe it will as the stimulus of personal accounts will pale to insignificance the tax cut of the 1980s then such increase in revenues will be more than enough to pay for the smooth transition to personal accounts.
    Advantage: Fair Tax
  • Unfunded Debt Reduction

    The Fair Tax hopes to generate sufficient activity to make a big dent in the $13.2 Trillion unfunded Social Security debt. It makes no provision for the looming $30 to $50 Trillion of Medicare liabilities. I personally am unconvinced that it adequately addresses the Social Security problem as the Fair Tax is revenue neutral and present revenues are not adequate to pay the ever-increasing unfunded liability much less reduce the existing liability. It would be necessary to run enormous surpluses under the Fair Tax to even begin to address these unfunded entitlements. Under Fair tax these liabilities remain a severe problem.

    The personal account plan abolishes both the Social Security and Medicare unfunded liabilities on the date of the plan’s passage. They are written off the books with the stroke of a pen. Congress is not obligated to fulfill those promises and they have proven that in the Supreme Court. They have no contractual obligation to retirees. They can repeal any laws without consequence.
    Advantage: Personal Accounts
  • Retirement Funding

    The Fair Tax makes no provision for retirement funding. Taxes presently collected to pay retirees will remain the same and substantial benefit cuts or an increase in the 23% consumption tax will be needed to keep those programs afloat. I don’t see any significant change in the dynamics of a revenue neutral consumption tax that would in any way ameliorate the problem.

    The personal account plan has been devised to make the poor rich and able to afford upon retirement an affluent lifestyle and the best medical coverage money can buy just off the income from their nest egg. Your $60,000 a year truck driver retires with a $4.8 Million nest egg and a $40,000 a month retirement check (2006 dollars) without invading his nest egg. He can afford a magnificent lifestyle and buy the best medical care money can buy.
    Advantage: Personal Accounts
  • Crime, Discontent and the Pursuit of Happiness

    The Fair Tax and its abolition of all the taxes and the bother they create will do wonders for the people. It is a step up in the pursuit of happiness. I question, however, its effect on crime and discontentment. I think it will only marginally improve either of the latter. Its revenue neutrality bespeaks of its failure to lift all boats.

    Personal accounts have been designed to make the poor rich; even those who by circumstance or environment can’t compete for the big bucks. It carries them into a paradigm in which they can achieve the American Dream by merely working to survive. As most crime is driven by the lack of money, personal accounts will do wonders in reducing crime. As a disincentive for bad behavior for those who commit crimes for money we will subtract their incarceration costs from their personal accounts when jailed. As the poor get wealthier, both the tenor of life and its crisis will tone down and hopefully mute. Personal accounts and the security they provide should be the ultimate reward in the pursuit of happiness.
    Advantage: Personal Accounts
  • Private Sector Retirement Funding

    The Fair Tax abolishes the payroll tax and provides Social Security and Medicare coverage assumedly at the same level presently paid. As those amounts are insufficient to provide just enough to avoid starvation and homelessness, I don’t see the Fair Tax helping the private sector fund retirement. As it presently stands business is abandoning fixed retirement benefit plans for 401(k)s which have no mortality pool (not payable until death). The Fair Tax should provide a cushion for corporations to provide retirement plans but I doubt they will do so considering the cost that must be added to their products and services.

    Personal accounts are designed to provide in one place all the retirement funding an American needs. He won’t need funding from his employer or employers. He can scrap his 401(k), his IRA. There will be no need with the nest egg he will accumulate under the personal account plan.
    Advantage: Personal Accounts
  • Wealth Creation

    The Fair Tax is not designed to create wealth. It is revenue neutral and neither cuts overall taxes nor provides for an increase in the capital pool (here we assume the rich will be freer to invest but it should be offset by a reduction from other classes who pick up the shortfall in tax collections).

    Personal accounts have been devised to create enormous personal wealth for American citizens; even the poor and uncompetitive will become wealthy. . Under this plan the overall wealth of America will geometrically rise to supply the world with the capital it needs to improve the overall standard of living of the oppressed and unfortunate of underdeveloped nations. Advantage: Personal Accounts FairnessIf by fairness one wants to rid themselves of bothersome details, the Fair Tax is your number. However, as between classes of taxpayers I have concluded the Fair Tax is anything but “fair”. Were it not revenue neutral and created huge surpluses with which to liquidate our unfunded debt. I would feel differently. As it is, it loses my vote. This is of course predictable as it is my passion to implement personal accounts at 15% of income and wages and I am exceedingly biased. I leave it to the Fair Tax crowd to challenge my findings and my conclusions. I doubt they will be sitting on their hands.
    Advantage: Personal Accounts
  • Legislative Potential

    Neither Fair Tax nor Personal Accounts legislation will go down without a massive battle with the establishment as both are designed to free the individual from the yolk of government. The forces of government are massive and impressive. Fortunately they already have personal accounts which I will use like a rapier to impugn their character and honesty with the American people. I predict they won’t get away so easily this time;. George W. Bush won’t be running interference.
    Advantage: Personal Accounts.

Obama: illegitimate child; illegitimate president

Pamela Geller:
Talk about your proverbial can of worms. Clearly, Barack Hussein Obama's Immigration file was the impetus for President Obama to release his "long form" last week. If he thought that would put the matter to rest, it has had the opposite effect. It has all raised more questions than it answered, as does the release of shocking revelations in BHO I's immigration file.

How HEZBOLLAH is infiltrating the United States

SAN DIEGO -- A terrorist organization whose home base is in the Middle East has established another home base across the border in Mexico.

"They are recognized by many experts as the 'A' team of Muslim terrorist organizations," a former U.S. intelligence agent told 10News.

The former agent, referring to Shi'a Muslim terrorist group Hezbollah, added, "They certainly have had successes in big-ticket bombings."

Show your gratitude: send the SEALS a postcard!

Received in an email today:

Here’s the address to say thanks to those Navy Seals:

Navy UDT-SEAL Museum
3300 North Highway A1a
Fort Pierce, FL 34949-8520


Though working in secret & seeking no glory, they richly deserve our thanks—so let’s give it to them. It would be so awesome to build a mountain of thank you cards from their fellow Americans (and people from all nations). Please take a moment to write two little words that could mean so much. Tell our finest '"thank you."

And please pass this on to anyone you know who is grateful for what the SEALs have done in the War on Terror and who would take the time to say thanks.



As for Hillary Rodham Rodham who now claims that her hand to her face in the picture was due to allergies and not horror, send her some Niacin or something.

As for President O’Bonehead, who took 16 hours to “sleep on” giving the GO code:

His behavior is best summarized:
  • Pardon me while I spike the football, while saying we must not spike the football.
  • Pardon me for trying to jail the interregators who yielded the information necessary to find the terrorist, while I take all the glory.
  • Pardon me for saying the water interview did not yield the information while the head of the operation and CIA says that indeed it did.

The Fair Tax: constructed on a foundation riddled with wishful thinking and flawed logic

Those who desire to relieve the crippling effect that today’s massive states have on their citizens ought to focus on reducing the share of private wealth that governments are able to claim as their due. To instead concentrate on tinkering with the means by which that claim is effected is like a doctor treating a person for athlete’s foot even while the patient is suffering a heart attack.
