Obama Campaign Brings Up 'Felons' in Latest Ad

What a bunch of Leftist SCUMBAGS and you know what – Those who cheer him on and vote for him just may be SCUMBAGS too. Sorry I cannot parse this any other way. (1) If you support this approach to campaigning and (2) vote for him, YOU are a SCUMBAG- You are Chicago-based-campaign-style scum and a member of his robotic un-American following. I can still like you or call you a friend but… You are scum by affiliation.

You may hate his wealth or hair and that is OK, you may hate his positions and that is OK, you can even hate his horse and that is OK but unless you SPEAK UP against this type of rhetoric – YOU ARE SCUM. You know why he is doing this – HE IS LOSING and he knows it. FEEL FREE TO CALL ME SCUM but all is ask is that you substantiate why I am scum as I have substantiated above why you could qualify for SCUM. Ball is in your court.

Let Romney or his ilk do this type of campaigning and I will blow HIS/THEIR ASS out of the water too and don’t give me crap about the Primary – not even close.

Felon – That is what I consider Bill Clinton – not Mitt Romney.

Under the Eye of God

WRITTEN BY A 21 YEAR OLD FEMALE Wow, this girl has a great plan! Love the last thing she would do the best.
This was written by a 21 yr old female who gets it. It's her future she's worried about and this is how she feels about the social welfare big government state that she's being forced to live in! These solutions are just common sense in her opinion.

This was in the Waco Tribune Herald, Waco , TX , Nov 18, 2011


Put me in charge of food stamps. I'd get rid of Lone Star cards; no cash for Ding Dongs or Ho Ho's, just money for 50-pound bags of rice and beans, blocks of cheese and all the powdered milk you can haul away. If you want steak and frozen pizza, then get a job.

Put me in charge of Medicaid. The first thing I'd do is to get women Norplant birth control implants or tubal legations. Then, we'll test recipients for drugs, alcohol, and nicotine. If you want to reproduce or use drugs, alcohol, or smoke, then get a job.

Put me in charge of government housing. Ever live in a military barracks? You will maintain our property in a clean and good state of repair. Your home" will be subject to inspections anytime and possessions will be inventoried. If you want a plasma TV or Xbox 360, then get a job and your own place.

In addition, you will either present a check stub from a job each week or you will report to a "government" job. It may be cleaning the roadways of trash, painting and repairing public housing, whatever we find for you. We will sell your 22 inch rims and low profile tires and your blasting stereo and speakers and put that money toward the "common good.."

Before you write that I've violated someone's rights, realize that all of the above is voluntary. If you want our money, accept our rules. Before you say that this would be "demeaning" and ruin their "self esteem," consider that it wasn't that long ago that taking someone else's money for doing absolutely nothing was demeaning and lowered self esteem.

If we are expected to pay for other people's mistakes we should at least attempt to make them learn from their bad choices. The current system rewards them for continuing to make bad choices.

AND While you are on Gov't subsistence, you no longer can VOTE! Yes, that is correct. For you to vote would be a conflict of interest. You will voluntarily remove yourself from voting while you are receiving a Gov't welfare check. If you want to vote, then get a job.


Dream Interpretation: What Does Your Dream Mean?

Have you ever dreamed something you didn’t understand? Do you ever wake up in the middle of the night because you had crazy, dangerous or frightening dreams? Have you ever met one of your dead family members in your dreams?
People see their pasts in their dreams. You can even, according to some dream interpreters, find solutions in your dreams.
Everyone dreams every night, but you might not remember it in the morning. You might believe that you don’t dream or perhaps you don’t remember your dreams at all, but you still dream. If you are sleeping and your brain can relax, thoughts are coming into your head and your soul and you subconscious begins to live in your brain and show you the best solutions for your life.
If are thinking about your biggest problem and you think no one can help you, you need to turn to yourself: you are the one who knows you the best. You can find a solution for yourself.
But how can you do this? You can go to a dream interpreter, who can give you advice, guidance or clarity for your life. At Oranum, for instance, you can speak to a specialist who can make dream interpretations for you.
According to these interpreters, memories get stored in the subconscious mind. This subconscious mind comes out in the mind of the dreaming person when he or she is sleeping. The subconscious mind forms different shapes in the dream that have resemblances to day to day objects but don’t represent them in reality. These objects may be representations of the past memories of the dreamer.
Dreams only contain things in the person’s memories; a person cannot create something that he/she hasn’t seen in his/her life through his/her own eyes.  MORE


Jobs, Coverage Lost Under ObamaCare Say Two New Reports

Two new reports show tough times ahead for American workers as ObamaCare comes closer and closer to fruition.

Business consulting firm Deloitte surveyed employers with 50+ employees who are currently offering their employees health care.
They found one in ten are planning to stop offering health care to their employees as a result of ObamaCare. In addition, the survey found one in three would consider dropping benefits if ObamaCare forces them to pay for more extensive coverage then they do now, if the tax on so-called "Cadillac" health plans goes into effect or if the tax for not offering health care would be far less than the premiums they now pay.

The Deloitte survey found a huge divide between large and small businesses. Only 2% of businesses with 1,000 or more employees are considering dropping health care coverage, while 13% of businesses with between 50 and 100 employees said they were planning to drop coverage.

Even for those who will retain health care coverage, the Deloitte survey contains some bad news. About three-fourths of employers contacted said they either have or would be increasing their employees' contribution to health care coverage.
John GoodmanJohn Goodman (pictured), President and CEO of the National Center for Policy Analysis, delivers more bad news for American workers with his testimony to Congress entitled, The Impact of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act on Job Creators and the Economy.

Goodman starts out by breaking down the cost of the health care mandate for every worker. Citing Congressional Budget Office figures, the average annual cost of a minimum benefit package will be between $4,500 and $5,000 for individuals and $12,000 to $12,500 for a family plan.

This translates to roughly $2.28 an hour for full-time individual workers and $5.89 an hour for family coverage.

By next year, the minimum cost of labor for a worker with family insurance coverage will be will be a $7.25 cash minimum wage and a $5.89 health minimum wage (family), for a total of $13.14 an hour or about $27,331 a year.

Goodman sums up the problem with the ObamaCare mandate:
For above-average-wage employees, expect wage stagnation over the foreseeable future, as employers use potential wage increases to pay for expanded (and mandated) health benefits instead. At the low end of the wage scale, however, the effects of this new law are going to be devastating.

Ten-dollar-an-hour workers and their employers cannot afford $6-an-hour health insurance. If they bought it, only $4 would be left for cash wages and that would violate the (cash) minimum wage law. This is not a small problem. One-third of uninsured workers earn less than $3 above the minimum wage.
Goodman also finds several other ways the complicated ObamaCare regime will result in potential disasters for workers and employers.
Goodman cites an example of a 55 year old head of a family of four in a high cost region whose health care will cost $23,700 a year. ObamaCare caps premiums at 9.5% of income for families that earn 350-400% above the poverty line, so the family would actually pay $8,901 -- resulting in a subsidy of $14,700.

However, should the family earn just $1 more than $93,699 threshold for the subsidy cap, the family would then be on the hook for the whole $23,700 a year. In effect, that $1 of income would be taxed at a marginal rate of 1.47 MILLION percent!

Employers will game the new system as well. Employers with 51 or more workers must pay a $2,000 penalty for not covering workers with an approved health care insurance package. So, if a business grows from 50 to 51 employees without adding coverage, it would be a $42,000 annual tax.
Employers could avoid this tax by simply turning 20 of their 51 workers into part-time employees. This would reduce the fine from $42,000 to $2,000, while 20 workers who want to work full-time would be reduced to part-time employment.

Experience has shown, when workers and employers make business decisions based on government mandates rather than what's best for consumers, everyone suffers.

Dem Party 'criminal organization'

Dark history jam-packed with politically powerful gangsters

The entire history of the Democratic Party is one of crime and corruption, according to former Time magazine associate editor Michael Walsh.

In a radio interview with WND's Greg Corombos, Walsh provides a detailed analysis of the party's dark past – from Aaron Burr's building of Tammany Hall and how Democrats tried to defeat Abraham Lincoln's re-election bid to Franklin Roosevelt's rise to the presidency and the Chicago machine connected to the Obama administration.

"What distinguishes them is a real desire to win," he explained. "They're the oldest party in the country obviously. ...
"They've stayed because they know how to win, and they're willing to change at the drop of a hat. They're willing to change their policies. They've gone from being the party of slavery and segregation to now claiming to be the party of civil rights laws passed in '64 and '65, when, in fact, those were passed with greater Republican support than Democrat support. But they're always mutating and trying to grab the moral high ground. And it seems to me they don't have any moral high ground."

Walsh detailed what he believes is a history of corruption in the Democratic Party, going all the way back to Aaron Burr.
"He founded Tammany Hall, which turned into, over the course of its 150-year existence, the prototypical big-city political machine: corrupt, in league with the most violent gangsters in New York during its heyday and the source of patronage and power on which the Democratic Party rests," Walsh explained.

He said the Democratic Party's win-at-all-cost attitude led to the creation of political machines that ran big-city politics for years.
"I think what's interesting about the Roosevelt era – if you go back to the '20s and '30s when you have basically Hoover and Roosevelt – it's also the time of the great gangster empires in America," he said. "It's when organized crime was really founded. That occurred in 1929 in Atlantic City, when every great gangster from all the ethnic groups came to Atlantic City and they split up the country into zones of influence. But they were very political as well, and the gangsters tended to be Democrats. Except for the Republican mayor of Atlantic City, 'Nucky' Johnson, it's hard to think of a gangster who was not a Democrat. They were very influential in getting Roosevelt nominated.

"In 1932, Al Smith had thought he had their allegiance, but they double-crossed him and they thought they'd get off easy with Roosevelt, who then promptly double-crossed the gangsters and sent Tom Dewey after them in the great clean-up of gangs in the '20s and '30s.

"But the party has always been in bed with this sort of criminal element, and sometimes a seditious criminal element. That was also true in the Roosevelt administration, where a number of Roosevelt administration officials turned out, subsequently, to have been Soviet agents of influence. Again, it's not a pretty sight."

Walsh said President Harry Truman, when he came up in politics in Kansas City, was the bag man for the great criminal Irish gangster who ran the city, Tom Pendergast.
"Truman never lost his affection for Pendergast," he said. "Even after he was finally brought to justice and sent to jail, Truman admired him very much."

He said the father of John F. Kennedy had been very much in league with gangsters, including Owney Madden, the biggest bootlegger and politically influential gangster in New York City.
"There's always this sub current running underneath the Democratic presidents," Walsh said. "The party got seized in 1968 in the streets of Chicago during the riots … and is now basically turned into the McGovern-Alinsky group that runs the country today."

In his book, "The People v. the Democratic Party," Walsh writes, "With Obama in office, all Washington is a skating rink on which characters like Barney Frank and Chris Dodd turn triple-Lutzes while their media cronies applaud like the Harvard-trained seals that many of them are."
In the WND interview, Walsh indicted his former colleagues in the mainstream media for doing little more than carrying water for their preferred candidates and issues.

"What's left of the mainstream media is a pretty hard-core group of leftists whose life's work and ambition is to promote their agenda," he said. "And they're doing a good job of it. It's just that they're losing their influence, and I think they'll continue to lose it as the public realizes they're not playing straight with them anymore."

'I, Smartphone' celebrates God-given free enterprise

Video shows miracles happen when government isn't in control

When renowned economist Leonard E. Read wrote his famous essay “I, Pencil” in 1958 to celebrate the “miracles” that arise from the combination of God-given human creativity and the free enterprise system, even he might not have have envisioned a device as marvelous as a smartphone.
But he understood the unchanging principles that made it possible, and a new video evokes the sheer wonder expressed in his essay along with his warnings about the ability of government to crush ingenuity and the creation of wealth.
Produced by Coldwater Media for the Institute for Faith, Work and Economics, “I, Smartphone” features two child actors who show “amazing things can happen” when no one person is directing the activity.
The video was screened at the FreedomWorks “Restoring Freedom” event Thursday night in Dallas that featured radio and TV host Glenn Beck, former House Majority Leader Dick Armey and Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky.
The non-profit Institute for Faith, Work and Economics says it is “dedicated to educating and inspiring Christians to embrace a Biblical understanding of faith, work, and economics.”

The child actors in the video, which is edited by Dave Stotts and written by Jay Richards, appeared in the “John 3:16″ commercial produced by Coldwater Media for Focus on the Family, which aired during an NFL playoff game last winter.
The video concludes with a quote from Read’s “I, Pencil”: “Since only God can make a tree, I insist that only God could make me. Man can no more direct these millions of know-hows to bring me into being than he can put molecules together to create a tree.”
Read, an economist who lived from 1898 to 1983, founded the Foundation for Economic Education in 1946, the first modern free market think tank in the U.S.
In his essay, Read’s pencil says “if you can understand me – no, that’s too much to ask of anyone – if you can become aware of the miraculousness which I symbolize, you can help save the freedom mankind is so unhappily losing.”
Read, whose essay was first published in the December 1958 issue of his groundbreaking publication, The Freeman, boiled down the lesson of the pencil: “Leave all creative energies uninhibited.”

“Merely organize society to act in harmony with this lesson,” he wrote. “Let society’s legal apparatus remove all obstacles the best it can. Permit these creative know-hows freely to flow. Have faith that free men and women will respond to the Invisible Hand.”
Read argued that once government has a monopoly on creative activity, such as the delivery of mail, people get the idea that such activity could not be efficiently carried out by men acting freely.
The reason is because each person “acknowledges that he himself doesn’t know how to do all the things incident to mail delivery.”
In “the absence of faith in free people – in the unawareness that millions of tiny know-hows would naturally and miraculously form and cooperate to satisfy this necessity – the individual cannot help but reach the erroneous conclusion that mail can be delivered only by governmental ‘master-minding.’”
But the testimonies of “what men and women can accomplish when free to try” are endless, he wrote.
Read cited numerous examples, including delivering “four pounds of oil from the Persian Gulf to our Eastern Seaboard – halfway around the world – for less money than the government charges for delivering a one-ounce letter across the street!”

  I was a democrat for years, until this trash took over and took our Democrat Party and made it into the joke it is today.
Well to start with there has not been a Democrat party for a few years. It was taken over by the likes of Jesse Jackson , AL Sharpton and Waters, Pelosi, Reid and several more... The Real Americans who were Democrats back then have gotten just as far away as possible, either as Independents or Conservative Republicans. The ones now who claim to belong to the "non-existing Democrat Party" continuously refer to themselves as "Liberals". It is people like you that made the word liberalism synonymous with Democrat. You people are the ones who make liberalism appear not so good.. The head of the "Black Panthers" Shabazz is a Liberal, according to him... He is vulgar, filthy talking, wears Muslim garb when out on the streets cursing White citizens.. Farrakhan, the leader of the "Nation of Islam" here in the United States in Washington D.C. is a liberal, accused of killing Malcolm X, put a bounty of Mr. Zimmerman's head before he was even known to be guilty, James Holmes who just killed innocent people in Colorado was a liberal, belonged to the "Black OW" in New York City, the black gangs in Chicago who killed a dozen or more of their own kind were all Obama Liberals... Bill Clinton was a liberal, lied constantly, ruined a young girl's life, while screaming to the world, "I did not have sex with that woman". Mayor Bloomberg of New York City just asked the Police to go on strike until the American citizens surrender their guns, Bloomberg is a Liberal, the Mayor of Chicago, Rham Emanuel, a liberal leader recommended the liberal Farrakhan, head of the Nation of Islam in the U.S. to help quell the violence on the Chicago streets. Said his ideas were great. Farrakhan and his mob did patrol some of the streets and went after a Christian business known as Chick-Fil-A and actually tried to shut it down. The business closes on Sunday so the workers can go to church. Then we have Jealous, leader of the NAACP which only gets subsidized by the Federal Government and serves no purpose. The liberals are responsible for the unfair, bias and racist laws such as "Affirmative Action" law, "Racial Profiling" law and the "Hate crime" law, all made to protect one race and punish another.
You are probably seeing the end of all America ever stood with a person , hussein obama who is completely unqualified, not too smart and is following foreign puppeteers who want this country ripped apart and it would appear his beloved followers will make it happen.

He is too dumb to know a black kid can go to any school in the city, plus all schools in the city gets the same amount of everything...but the liberal blacks somehow wound up with unqualified teachers, mats made from gunny sacks.. parking lots filled with broken glass etc, etc... It would take volumes to describe the reason liberals are becoming a huge joke.. Democrats have already gone by the wayside....Obama is a disgrace to each and every citizen even if they do not realize it.......

The Middle East horror show

As of Wednesday the news out of the Middle East is that naval fleets in the Mediterranean and armed forces from Russian, Western and Arab nations were, according to Debka File, "piling up on Syrian borders."

The Russians are aligned with Syria which also has Iranian support as a satellite state intent on keeping Bashar al-Assad in charge. In the UN, the Chinese, too, have vetoed measures to contain the Syrian leadership. The Obama administration has rather belatedly discovered how useless the UN is.

It is yet another Middle East horror show as the greater and lesser powers struggle to contain it.

There's always a price to pay for making bad choices. The cliché is that we learn from our mistakes, but as often as not we forget them and repeat them. I got to thinking about this as I watched the murderous mess occurring in Syria, the natural extension of the popular movements that overthrew despots in Tunisia, Libya, and Egypt; movements fostered by the Muslim Brotherhood.

Lest anyone assume we are watching democracy in action, a yearning of the Muslim masses to achieve the freedoms Americans and others in the West enjoy, it would be well to take into consideration the general culture of the Arab world and to understand that "Muslim democracy" is as great an oxymoron and "Capitalist communism."

Nothing about Islam suggests democracy and only Turkey managed to install democratic governance by virtue of maintaining a secular state — backed by the military — that kept Islam separate from government. Ironically, the Baathist — Socialist — Parties in Iraq under Saddam Hussein and in Syria under the Assad family, father and son, did the same thing.

In Egypt under the control of a succession of military dictators from Nasser to Mubarack, all dealt with the militant Muslim Brotherhood by jailing its leaders and making it unsafe to be too Islamist.

Lebanon was considered the jewel of the Mediterranean and enjoyed years of peaceful government by creating a coalition between its Christian and Muslim populations. Then the Palestinians came along to initiate civil wars. Syria, that always coveted Lebanon, sent troops to "maintain the peace" until the Lebanese rose up in a peaceful revolt and forced them out.

What was left, however, was the Palestinian Hezbollah, an Iranian proxy that remains in control in Lebanon. Now the big question is whether the chemical arsenal that Saddam parked in Syria will be used against Israel or against the Syrians trying to drive out the ruling Assad-Alawite clan.

The two times that Americans chose an extremely liberal President, Jimmy Carter in the late 1970s and Barack Obama in 2008, they made a hash of Middle Eastern policy. Carter abandoned the Shah of Iran. Obama famously bowed to the Saudi king, and has belatedly expressed support for the Iranians who fill the streets of Tehran to protest the dictatorship of the ayatollahs. In a similar fashion he was late to the party regarding events in Libya, Egypt, and now Syria.

Contrast this with George H.W. Bush who put together a coalition to force Saddam out of Kuwait in 1990 and his son, George W. Bush, who did the same to overthrow him in 2003 following a swift response to 9/11 when he rendered as much punishment as possible to al Qaeda in Afghanistan. In both cases, their instincts were good, but Bush43 made the mistake of staying on.

The result in Afghanistan and Iraq was a predictable Arab-Muslim response that continues to play out to present times as Sunnis and Shiites do their best to kill one another in order control oil wealth and other income streams. These are largely tribal wars using Islam as their justification though they also demonstrate al Qaeda's intention to exploit the conflicts in its own interest. In Iraq today, the bombs are still going off, most recently killing more than a hundred victims.

President Obama has proved to be pro-Muslim and extremely risk-averse. He campaigned against both wars in Afghanistan and Iraq because, it must be said, most Americans wanted their troops out of these places and with good cause. Killing bin Laden was a no-brainer, albeit risky. He quickly claimed all the credit for nearly a decade's effort of his predecessor to find him though he made no mention of it.

The Wall Street Journal in an editorial, "Obama's Syrian Education," noted that "It only took 17 months, and multiple Russian and Chinese vetoes, but the Obama administration has finally concluded that the United Nations has failed on Syria."

The UN is a legacy of Franklin Delano Roosevelt and World War Two. It was fashioned largely by the communists in his and Truman's administration. There has been little peace in the world since it was established and it has been a huge failure in too many ways to enumerate. It is a cesspool of corruption and the epicenter of the effort to impose a global government.

Obama's economic policies, largely based on dispensing taxpayer's money to unions, campaign fund bundlers, and ignoring any steps to address unemployment and other ills, are sufficient reason to throw him out of office in November. His foreign policies have been a disastrous succession of missteps regarding Russia, China, the Middle East, and everywhere else.

The larger war being fought these days is the Islamic assault on the West and it is not likely to end until the military strength of the U.S. is used with precision to punish Iran, the main exporter of terrorism. Or Israel will be forced to take action.

Nations, like individuals, do what they can to avoid conflict. It is costly in treasure and lives, but if history is any guide, it is also necessary, whether it is preemptive or in response to aggression. We have a President who has been Muslim-friendly all of his life — if not in fact a Muslim — and that bodes ill, especially for Israel, our only democratic ally in the Middle East, and for the outcome of the present Syrian civil war.

200,000 Muslims convert to Christianity

Sheiks, imams, Islamic leaders, ordinary devotees defy death, ostracism

WASHINGTON – It’s not easy to leave Islam in a Muslim country.
It can put one’s freedom and very life at risk

But thousands are doing it, according to a new book by Jerry Trousdale, director of international ministries for City Team International. In fact, he writes in “Miraculous Movements: How Hundreds of Thousands of Muslims Are Falling in Love With Jesus,” some 200,000 Muslims have converted to Christianity in just the last six years. And they include sheiks, imams, Muslim leaders and ordinary devotees of the faith.
“There is tremendous dissatisfaction and discouragement among the very people who know the Quran the best and who are themselves desperate for assurance in their own religion,” says Trousdale.
City Team has locations in California, Pennsylvania and Oregon and partnerships in 42 countries around the world. Since 1998, the organization has cared for people around the world by training, equipping, mentoring and coaching local leaders to care for those in need in their communities. This includes training 600,000 new Christians who have started over 18,000 new churches in the past seven years.
“We’re starting a whole new thinking about the nature of church,” says Trousdale. “The model of the church that is emerging is so very different from traditional church. Disciple-making movements are reaching entire nations around the world. It’s incredibly exciting to be a part of seeing people’s lives radically changed by the gospel.”
He believes what has been learned from this experience can make anyone more effective at sharing the gospel – wherever they are.
“This book, these people, and the miraculous stories are for real!” exclaims Chip Ingram, senior pastor of Ventura Christian Church. “There is a paradigm shifting movement of God that anyone and everyone committed to making disciples must read and apply.”
Trousdale says he has seen entire mosques converting to Christianity. He tells of two disciple-makers who refused to give up on one town that had martyred five Christians.
Within seven years, there were seven churches in the town.
The book also documents accounts of Muslims discovering Jesus in dreams and visions.

The History of the Future

No Joke

by Dr. Robert owens

Fido, Casper the Friendly Ghost, and Juan Valdez walk into a polling place. No this isn’t the beginning of a joke it is a key part of the Chicago Plan to re-elect the worst President in American History.
The Voter Participation Center (VPC), a left wing organization whose work to register Democrat voters exemplifies the process used for generations in Chicago to ensure the Outfit/Machine maintains control of the government, the power, and the swag. The VPC is mass mailing pre-printed voter registration forms to selected voter blocks known to be part of the Democrat coalition, African-Americans, Latinos, young adults, and single women. In their effort to extend the Chicago system to the rest of the country VPC mailed nearly 200,000 third-party voter registration forms to Virginia residents in June. This has resulted in more than 15,000 new voters being registered.

However, there are a few problems with this exercise in Chicago-style democracy. They are violating rules set forth in the state code and the Virginia Constitution requiring that voters fill out their own form. The State Board of Elections, which the group says pre-approved their forms and their methods, has asked the group to stop filling in the forms prior to sending them to the people, and pointing to the errant forms they have also raised questions concerning how the group obtained lists of registered voters. In addition, according to Justin Riemer, the Virginia State Board of Elections' deputy secretary, forms have been sent by the group to “deceased infants, out-of-state family members, and non-U.S. citizens, among others.” Given the fact that these forms can be mailed in and that the Federal Government will sue any State that has the chutzpah to require a photo ID to vote don’t be surprised if in this, the most crucial election of our lives Fido, Casper, or Juan cast their vote to continue the occupation of Washington by the Progressive Statists and their totalitarian plans.

The list of problems with Democrat voting procedures that have ensured their iron-fisted rule in the tottering hulks of our once great cities is as long as it is disturbing. There are the great Democrat machines that have used every form of voter fraud and intimidation to dominate the urban political scene in America for generations in places such as Philadelphia, Detroit, and of course the Mecca of corruption President Obama’s adopted hometown and political base, Chicago. In East St. Louis and Indianapolis there are actually more registered voters than eligible citizens.

As the Obama Justice Department circles the country like a bird of prey waiting to pounce on any jurisdiction that attempts to purge the dead the illegal immigrants or felons from the voting lists, it is apparent that voter fraud has been elevated from a crime to a national policy. So far Attorney General Holder has sued Florida, Georgia, and Texas while investigating Pennsylvania. Yet there is no time or resources spent on investigating sixteen counties in Texas with more voters on the rolls than in the census or sixteen jurisdictions in Illinois that also have more registered than eligible. There also was no interest in prosecuting the clear case of voter intimidation by the New Black Panther Party who patrolled voting locations armed with clubs while making racist statements to voters. And the most reprehensible case of voter suppression of all is the campaign waged to limit the vote of our active duty military.

Any attempt to slow the growth of phantom voters is met vigorously by the Federal Government with strident accusations of racism saying that anyone who requires a photo ID to vote might as well burn a cross on the White House lawn. This is patently absurd. It takes a photo ID to do many things people do every day. You need a photo ID to:

Get a Driver's license
Buy alcohol
Buy cigarettes
Apply for welfare
Apply for food stamps
Cash a check
Purchase a firearm
Make any large credit card purchase
Open a bank account
Rent an apartment
Be admitted to a hospital
Get a marriage license

And yet according to Attorney General Holder any jurisdiction that requires a photo ID to vote is placing an undue burden on minorities akin to a poll tax collected by a man in a white hood. But for security purposes you needed a photo ID to get into the NAACP meeting recently to hear Mr. Holder speak in a state he is currently suing over their requirement of a photo ID to vote. The irony never ends in a world that is fast becoming the theater of the absurd.
Add into the mix that most states offer free IDs and provisional ballots that are counted once ID is verified to anyone who shows up without an ID, and it’s easy to see the righteous battle against voter ID is really a reprehensible defense of voter fraud.
And just in case the actual living citizens of America show up to vote in great enough numbers to compete with Fido, Casper the Ghost, and Juan the Obama administration has retained the services of thousands of lawyers. These devil’s advocates will challenge the vote in any district that goes against them or to defend themselves in any jurisdiction with the gall to challenge their manufactured majority.
Passing over the debates of who is Barack Obama, where did he come from, and what motivates him we must deal now with the Fete Accompli. He has been legally sworn in and has run the country into the ground for almost four years. We cannot afford four more years of the Progressive’s spend us into oblivion with the Cloward–Piven Strategy as national policy. We cannot afford another four years of international support for the Muslim Brotherhood’s march to power in Middle East and serial apology tours. We cannot afford another four years of trillion dollar yearly deficits. We cannot afford another four years of Barack Obama if America is to have any chance to remain the land of the free and the home of the brave.
If we don’t end this soon the Progressives will end it later.
If we don’t reassert our devotion to constitutionally limited government, personal liberty, and economic freedom we will sink into a quagmire of endless entitlements for the idlers paid for by plundering the productive. In four short months we will have an opportunity to choose. The opponents of liberty are lined up to steal the election, but we can overwhelm them if we will all show up and vote. Make sure every Patriot is registered, and do anything and everything you can to make sure everyone you know votes, because you can bet Fido, Casper the Friendly Ghost, and Juan Valdez will. And that’s no joke.

Keep the faith. Keep the peace. We shall overcome.

America edging toward confrontation on religious freedom, Archbishop Chaput warns : News Headlines - Catholic Culture

Trick or Treaty

It's the latest threat to parents' rights that no one knows about--and yesterday, the Senate moved one step closer to making it the law of the land. Like most U.N. treaties, this one sounds harmless enough. But make no mistake--its innocuous name, Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), masks a cunning attack on parental authority, unborn life, and U.S. sovereignty. Of course, this is a favorite strategy of liberal administrations: using treaties to get radical policies through the country's backdoor. In this instance, it would bring our nation even closer to President Obama's apparent goal of putting America under global governance.

As Phyllis Schafly points out, the U.S. already enacted the strongest piece of disabilities legislation in the world. This idea that the U.N. "can provide more benefits or protections for persons with disabilities than the U.S. is bizarre," she writes in an excellent column that debunks the need for such a treaty. "The United States always treats individuals, able or disabled, rich or poor, innocent or guilty, better than any nation." Democrats argue that it would help the rest of the world "catch up" to our standards. But, as Sen. Jim DeMint and others have made clear, the U.S. doesn't need to sign away its rights to provide leadership in that area.

While this is a noble cause that embodies the American ethic--treating people with dignity and respect--it gives the U.N. a profound stake in U.S. law and the rights of people across the country. Specifically, the CRPD takes aim at parents, declaring that an international body--not moms and dads--will be the ultimate authority on issues like education. The treaty slips in phrases like "best interest of the child," which, as Sen. Rick Santorum pointed out with me on last week's radio show, are "red alert alarm words." They mean that government officials or courts will be in the position of deciding what's in your child's best interest--not you. Under CRPD, the government would supersede parents in setting course plans for both gifted and special needs kids. The Homeschool Legal Defense Association is concerned--and rightly so. It maintains that this Convention signals a dramatic turnaround in parental rights.

And, of course, it wouldn't be a U.N. proposal if it didn't include a backdoor to greater abortion access. "The feminists saw to it that this treaty about disabilities includes language in Article 25 that requires signatories to 'provide persons with disabilities... free or affordable health care," Phyllis notes, "including in the area of sexual and reproductive health and population-based health programs.'" Translation: the global community could force America to sanction sterilization or abortion for the disabled--at taxpayer expense! Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) tried to neutralize the threat yesterday during the mark-up in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Unfortunately, his amendment (which would have stopped the treaty from forcing abortion policy on countries that sign) was thwarted by Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) after a debate that you can watch here.

Although Sen. DeMint managed to delay the CRPD a week, the Committee, including three of its Republicans--Sens. John Barrasso (Wy.), Richard Lugar (Ind.), Johnny Isakson (Ga.)--voted yesterday to send the treaty to the Senate floor, where it could be ratified as early as next week. Between now and then, it is absolutely critical for people to see that what's at stake in this debate, which is nothing short of our authority as parents--and as a nation. By law, the Convention will need 67 votes to pass, which means we need to persuade at least 34 senators to defeat it. Contact your senators today and urge them to vote down this deadly infringement on U.S. sovereignty. Your rights depend on it.

Rep. Mike Kelly of Pennsylvania Gets a Standing Ovation in the House of Representatives

Representative Mike Kelly, speaking on the House floor today, managed something very rare in the history of the institution – he got a standing ovation. Applause is usually forbidden in the house, but Kelly‘s blistering attack on regulatory red tape and Washington’s culture of control was apparently so powerful that several of his fellow house members couldn’t resist showing their support, clapping, standing up and shouting “USA! USA! USA!”
Would you applaud this way? See Kelly’s speech below and decide for yourself:

On Thursday Barack Obama Issued a racist Executive Order. The Order titled, White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for African Americans sets forth a new policy for a group of people that is pretty vast is just taken at face value. After all, this could also refer to many whites because Africa is a continent, not a nation. However, the people in view here are those with dark skin, not Caucasians.

Public Advocate of the U.S.

Dear John Q Public,

I’m sure you’ve heard about the fight erupting around the Christian restaurant chain Chick-fil-A this past week.

This company has steadfastly held to their founding Christian principles decade after decade.

And when pressed last week, the current president of Chick-fil-A voiced his unwavering support for real marriage.

And the Homosexual Lobby cannot stand it!

Since then they have launched a blistering wave of hateful attacks against Chick-fil-A.

The radical homosexuals are determined to break Chick-fil-A’s spirit or their businesses.

Major media has launched story after story denouncing Chick-fil-A for their pro-Family stance.

And Equality Illinois, a major group in the Homosexual Lobby, has called on its radical allies to assualt Chick-fil-A's across the country by creating inappropriate homosexual displays in front of children and families while they eat!

Radical rank-and-file members have flooded the internet and Facebook with images and messages of hate in an attempt to demonize anyone who still eats there.

The mayors of Boston and Chicago have each announced they will do whatever they can to undermine and destroy local Chick-fil-A restaurants.

The Homosexual Lobby is determined to stamp out any opposition to their radical agenda.

That’s why I'm calling on all Public Advocate supporters to stand by Chick-fil-A in this storm.

Next Wednesday has been marked as a special day to eat at Chick-fil-A if you appreciate the pro-Family stance they are taking.

We have to show them, and all other Christian and Moral businesses out there that their pro-Family customers will support them when they come under attack by the dangerous Homosexual Lobby.

President Eugene Delgaudio appeared at his local Chick-fil-A restaurant to support their stand for traditional values and a real definition of marriage.

Obama, Planned Parenthood and his Daughters

Obama, Planned Parenthood and his Daughters, Again

I don’t mean to be a nudge, I really don’t. But it’s starting to creep me out, how much Obama loves Planned Parenthood, and how he clearly lives with the expectation that his daughters are going to kill his grandchildren, and negate the coming of love.
“Mr. Romney wants to get rid of funding for Planned Parenthood. I think that is a bad idea,” Obama said. “I’ve got two daughters. I want them to control their own health care choices. We’re not going backwards, we’re going forwards.”
Obama’s two daughters, Malia and Sasha are ages 14 and 11, respectively.
“I don’t want my daughters punished with a baby,” was icky enough. But if Obama really wants to make sure his grandchildren don’t get in the way of his daughters “dreams” (and if he’s so sure that their dreams include abortion) does he want to them go to Planned Parenthood to do it?
Planned Parenthood, where — if their wombs are perforated and they start hemorrhaging at 11 AM — the abortion clinic may wait until 4:30 PM to call an ambulance, while his daughters, like poor Tonya Reaves, bleed to death?

Perhaps he should reconsider his fervent idea that Planned Parenthood should have any part in his children’s — or his grandchildren’s — future. Or lack of one.

His unswerving, un-”evolving” faithfulness to the facilitation of fetal death and infanticide really does creep me out.

Oh, and it’s “a scary time to be a woman”. But not really. Unless, of course, you put yourself into the hands of barbarism.

Voices without a Vote

The teenagers who speak in this video belong to http://www.im2moro.org. These young people realize that if they don't stand up and speak out for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness today, they will be living in a very different America tomorrow.

These young people may be too young to vote, but their rights are still protected under the Constitution. Hear what they have to say. Then, help them to defend their freedom, and yours, with your vote on November 6.

 Reblogged from Biltrix:

To some extent, we have missed important opportunities. To restore constitutional government, we must nominate Conservatives and elect them. Unfortunately, we have much to learn. So after this election -- even if we do well -- we will only have begun. Nonetheless, we must do what we can. We can remove Obama and throw out the senators who voted for Obamacare. We can repeal Obamacare. With sufficient effort, we can begin the restoration of constitutional government. With sufficient effort, we can keep those who cannot protect their rights from growing up to become serfs.

Obama Care Flatlines

When does your home become part of your health care? After 2012!



I thought you might find this interesting, -- maybe even SICKENING!

The National Association of Realtors is all over this and working to
get it repealed, -- before it takes effect. But, I am very pleased we
aren't the only ones who know about this ploy to steal billions from
unsuspecting homeowners. How many realtors do you think will vote
Democratic in 2012?

Did you know that if you sell your house after 2012 you will pay a 3.8%
sales tax on it? That's $3,800 on a $100,000 home, etc. When did this
happen? It's in the health care bill, -- and it goes into effect in
2013. Why 2013? Could it be so that it doesn’t come to light until
after the 2012 elections? So, this is ‘change you can believe in’?

Under the new health care bill all real estate transactions will be
subject to a 3.8% sales tax.

If you sell a $400,000 home, there will be a $15,200 tax. This bill is
set to screw the retiring generation, -- who often downsize their
homes. Does this make your November, 2012 vote more important?

Oh, you weren't aware that this was in the Obama Care bill? Guess what;
you aren't alone! There are more than a few members of Congress that
weren't aware of it either.

Presidential Campaign Round-Up

Mitt Romney blasted President Barack Obama in a speech to the Veterans of Foreign Wars. Romney said that Obama has “diminished American leadership” in the world, and blamed Obama for potentially significant defense cuts passed by Congress as part of the debt ceiling compromise. Vice President Joe Biden launched a stinging rebuttal, calling Romney’s speech a “litany of untruths.”
A new NBC/Wall Street Journal poll gave Obama a six-point lead over Romney, up from a three-point lead in June. The poll was notable for Romney’s very weak favorable ratings; only 35 percent of voters viewed Romney favorably, while 40 percent viewed him negatively. The poll also indicated that Obama’s attacks on Romney are sticking. 32 percent said what they’ve heard about Romney’s tax returns makes them feel more negatively toward Romney, while only 4 percent said it made them feel more positive.
Mitt Romney was, once again, not involved in decision-making, this time about destroying records related to his time in charge of the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City. Romney campaign spokesperson Andrea Saul said that Romney “resigned from SLOC in early 2002 to run for governor of Massachusetts and was not involved in the decision-making regarding the final disposition of records.” The explanation echoes Romney’s previous and ultimately false claims to have left Bain Capital before a series of politically difficult decisions were made.
Romney is heading abroad for his first foreign trip as the presumptive GOP nominee. Romney will visit the United Kingdom for the opening of the Olympics and meetings with British leaders, before traveling to Israel on Saturday. Romney didn’t forget Poland; he’ll finish his trip there.
The Obama Campaign has launched a new ad attacking Romney over the “you didn’t build that” kerfuffle. The ad features Obama talking directly to the camera, saying, “Those ads taking my words about small business out of context, they’re flat out wrong.”
Meanwhile, pretty much every business owner Romney finds to criticize the out-of-context version of Obama’s quote turns out to have made money thanks to government help. So far, Romney has run an ad featuring a businessman who received nearly $1 million in government loans, two companies that received thousands of dollars in government contracts, and a business owner able to start his company thanks to local government bonding. Nevertheless, none of the business owners seemed to see a problem; one owner who received money from the government said, “We don’t need any more of government’s help. We haven’t had any.”

Ron Paul's 'Audit The Fed' Bill Sails Through House

Rep. Ron Paul (R-Tx) is not known for his legislative successes, but Wednesday, he got one.
H.R. 459 is the Federal Reserve Transparency Act allows for a full audit of the Federal Reserve, including an audit of the Fed’s monetary policy decision. It’s Paul’s signature piece of legislation and it passed the House in a bipartisan 327-98 vote. The bill had 270 co-sponsors and marks a victory in what is likely the waning of Paul’s legislative service.
Paul has crusaded against the Fed for decades, arguing that the Fed’s power to create money has devalued the dollar and left Americans more vulnerable to market bubbles. Ultimately Paul would love to see the eradication of the Fed. But that’s not happening anytime soon in Congress, so for now, transparency is going to have to do. Cont. Reading

History Lesson on Your SS Card

I pulled this from a comment by Michael Williams. He was commenting on this article: http://visiontoamerica.org/4040/the-hidden-history-of-social-security/. This is the kind of information every Conservative candidate needs to be presenting in every confrontation with a liberal…

Just in case some of you young whippersnappers (& some older ones) didn’t know this.

It’s easy to check out, if you don’t believe it. Be sure and show it to your family and friends. They need a little history lesson on what’s what and it doesn’t matter whether you are Democrat or Republican.

Facts are Facts.

Social Security Cards up until the 1980s expressly stated the number and card were not to be used for identification purposes. Since nearly everyone in the United States now has a number, it became convenient to use it anyway and the message, NOT FOR IDENTIFICATION, was removed.

Our Social Security

Franklin Roosevelt, a Democrat, introduced the Social Security (FICA) Program. He promised:

1.) That participation in the Program would be Completely voluntary, Now, no longer Voluntary

2.) That the participants would only have to pay 1% of the first $1,400 of their annual Incomes into the Program , Now 7.65% on the first $90,000.

3.) That the money the participants elected to put into the Program would be deductible from their income for tax purposes each year, No longer tax deductible.

4.) That the money the participants put into the independent ‘Trust Fund’ rather than into the general operating fund, and therefore, would only be used to fund the Social Security Retirement Program, and no other Government program, and, Under Johnson the money was moved to The General Fund and Spent.

5.) That the annuity payments to the retirees would never be taxed as income. Under Clinton & Gore Up to 85% of your Social Security can be Taxed Since many people have paid into FICA for years and are now receiving a Social Security check every month — and then finding that they are getting taxed on 85% of the money they paid to the Federal government to ‘put away’ — you may be interested in the following:

Q: Which Political Party took Social Security from the independent ‘Trust Fund’ and put it into the general fund so that Congress could spend it?

A: It was Lyndon Johnson and the democratically controlled House and Senate.

Q: W hi ch Political Party eliminated the income tax deduction for Social Security (FICA) withholding?

A: The Democratic Party.

Q: Which Political Party started taxing Social Security annuities?

A: The Democratic Party, with Al Gore casting the ‘tie-breaking’ deciding vote as President of the Senate, while he was Vice President of the US.

Q: Which Political Party decided to start giving annuity payments to immigrants?


A: That’s right! Jimmy Carter and the Democratic Party. Immigrants moved into this country, and at age 65, began to receive Social Security payments! The Democratic Party gave these payments to them, even though they never paid a dime into it!

Then, after violating the original contract (FICA), the Democrats turn around and tell you that the Republicans want to take your Social Security away! And the worst part about it is uninformed citizens believe it!

If enough people receive this, maybe a seed of awareness will be planted and maybe changes will evolve. But it’s worth a try.

How many people can YOU send this to? Actions speak louder than bumper stickers.

Watching the greens kill Australia and we might be next !

Fortunately for America, President Obama's effort to impose a cap-and-trade law on carbon dioxide emission failed in a Democrat controlled Congress that saw how disastrous its impact would have been in a time of economic distress.

It would have imposed higher costs on everything involving the use of energy and would have done so on the basis of the all the lies about global warming, greenhouse gases, and Obama's anti-energy policies. Using the Environmental Protection Agency, he has been bludgeoning the coal industry and, via the Department of the Interior, thwarting the exploration and extraction of oil on all of the vast land holdings of the federal government.

As I have often noted, there hasn't been any planetary warming since 1998 when Earth began a normal cycle of cooling and carbon dioxide plays no role whatever in either warming or cooling. It is a mere 0.038 percent of the atmosphere.

For several years now I have been watching the destruction of the Australian economy by its elected leaders. David Archibold, a climate scientist and energy analyst based in Perth is a visiting fellow of the Institute of World Politics in Washington, D.C. where he teaches a course in strategic energy policy. On July 1, he gave a speech at an anti-carbon tax rally in Sydney.

"There is no doubt that we are ruled by evil men and evil women who are fully aware of the damage they are doing to our economy, and to the warp and weft of our society, and who seem to be in a manic rush to do as much damage as possible in the time left to them," Archibold told those attending the rally. Sadly, they already knew the truth of this.

An Australia friend of mine recently wrote to say "the Australian carbon dioxide tax — or as our lying government calls it 'price on carbon' — came into effect on July 1, 2012. Already our electricity prices have risen by up to 20%, refrigerant gas gone up 300%. Landfill and tip fees have increased by 30%, food is up. The tax has been imposed on EVERY item we buy in some form or other," adding that "I wouldn't be surprised if you get a similar tax if Obama wins in November. We are slowly destroying our economy."

A word about refrigerant gases; these are required for your home and car air conditioning, your refrigerator, and for a stand alone freezer. Most food items, liquid or solid — particularly meats, poultry and fish — require refrigerated transport. The Australian carbon tax adds thousands of dollars to these costs of operation and affects everyone.

The Greens, whether as part of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) or as groups in various nations, have done everything they can to thwart energy use, to replace oil, coal and natural gas with the useless, costly "renewable energies" of wind, solar, and biofuels. Humans, they insist, are destroying the Earth, but it is the Greens who are destroy Australia these days.

Australia is a case history of what happens when Greens and those in power join hands to use the instrument of government to destroy a successful nation. As Sam Fielding recently reported in an article on AmericanThinker.com, Australia went from a thriving economy under former Prime Minister John Howard who served from 1996 to 2007, only to elect Kevin Rudd's left-wing Labor Party in 2007. By 2009 "a six year run of budget surpluses gave way to the largest deficits in modern (Australian) politics. His deputy was Julia Gillard who challenged him and won election, promised that "there will be no carbon tax under the government I lead."

If this reminds you of all the promises President Obama made prior to taking office and plunging the U.S. into $17 trillion of debt, it is exactly the kind of duplicity that has ruined Australia when Gillard engineered the controversial tax.

Obama visited Australia in November 2011 and expressed support for the carbon tax saying, "I think that's good for the world...I actually think, over the long term, it's good for our economics as well, because it is my strong belief that industries, utilities, individual consumers — we're all going to have to adapt how we use energy and how we think about carbon."

As is the case of the IPCC, many of Australia's scientists were corrupted. Archibold said, "As a scientist, what saddens me is that most of our scientific institutions have failed in their duty to serve and protect the Australian people" referring to the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization, government bureaus, and the universities — "these have all failed us and sold their souls for a handful of silver."

"The notion of global warming," said Archibold, "was concocted to provide a cloak of scientific respectability for a massive socialist redistribution of wealth." If that sounds like what is happening in America today, you're right.

My Australian friend also took note of a mining tax that has been imposed, not unlike Obama's attacks on the U.S. mining industry. America sits atop enough coal to provide electricity for hundreds of years to come, but it is being systematically destroyed. "Australia is in a world of hurt and all so unnecessary. See what socialist, radical, green, lefty governments bring us?"

Yes, look at Australia and see what lies ahead if Obama is given four more years to complete his destruction of America.
