Midnight In The Coal Mine

September 21, 2011 by  

Midnight In The Coal Mine

How bad has it gotten for the White House’s resident Marxist? Even his hometown paper is suggesting he give up any thoughts of running for re-election.

Chicago Tribune columnist Steve Chapman wrote Sunday that when Ronald Reagan ran for re-election his slogan was “Morning in America,” but for President Barack Obama “it’s more like midnight in a coal mine.” (And for those who love to look for signs of racism in any critique of the President, I don’t believe “midnight” referred to Obama himself, but rather the dark state of the country.)

Chapman references the book, Second Term Blues, and points out that the second terms for Presidents seldom measure up to the first.

“Presidential encores are generally a bog of frustration, exhaustion and embarrassment,” Chapman writes. “They are famous for lowest moments rather than finest hours.”

Wow!

No wonder the “Draft Hillary” express is stoking its boiler on the siding.

    Obama has got to know he is a one term president. He stole the nomination from Hillary to begin with, so she would be the likely ‘new candidate’. The GOP had better get it together. If Hillary runs, she will be hard to beat.

      You are correct. Plan B if comrad Obama Marxist Alinsky disciple is not working put in replacement first female Marxist Alinsky disciple. May the Billiary dynasty reign supreme over the Marxist States of America. Which reeducation camp am I assigned to I haven’t got my notice yet.

      • eddie47d

        …and you won’t get a notice because it isn’t going to happen.This article is a travesty and only brought out your heart of darkness. Disliking Obama or any President is an important feature of American political life but PL does get carried away at times.PL brings the gasoline and you all light the match. First of all Obama is about as “sunny” as Reagan.He is always upbeat and optimistic on most issues so PL’s analogy is for the most part bogus.Now every single President needs to be taken to task on each and every issue. The good the bad and the ugly issues. So that is not the problem it’s how those issues are framed and demonized with falsehoods. There is always an extra helping of doom and gloom here. Maybe we should change the name of PL to The Coal Mine Site. Deep dark and gaseous.

        • dufas-duck

          Let’s see..play nice with the Democrat Presidents but always denigrate a Republican President. Now I understand….

          • eddie47d

            I never said criticizing any President of either party is wrong only in how it is done.So what you said is not “in how it works’.

          • Jeff

            You figured out American politics since PC and an oreo President got in. Never criticize a Democrat, they can’t take it. How many Bush “jokes” were we to smile and ignore? Now it isn’t PC to make jokes or criticize the wrong direction for the country.

            Brother Jeff
            Eddie needs to carry a flash lite around when following obumer those sudden stops seem to be his problem,Neck deep!When are they ever going to see day light again.Even 0′s home town wants him gone!But not eddie were just a bunch of racist.It matters not that he can do the job hell anyone can do even eddie! :)

          • eddie47d

            You’re turning out to be quite the harpy Dan.Enjoy the rest of the evening.

        • Maryland Freestater

          Edward, I respectfully disagree – I believe the Lord-Marshall is more like Nixon, and NOT on a good day, except Nixon was funnier. Please don’t defend the indefensible – Obama has a black heart (and not in a racial way either) and should NEVER have been elected. I also believe there a very real possibility he’ll be reelected…

          Dear eddie47d,

          The analogy wasn’t mine. It was from the President’s own hometown paper. But thanks for trying.

            Thanks Bob and yes Chapman does have a right to sling his opinion.

          • http://www.boblivingstonletter.com/ Bob Livingston

            Dear eddie47d,

            I’m afraid you’ve erred and laid your agenda out for all to see–not that it was particularly well hidden. It’s okay for Mr. Chapman to make the reference to midnight in the coal mine. No suggestion from you that the Tribune change it’s name to “The Coal Mine Site. Deep dark and gaseous.” But were the analogy mine that is your suggestion for Personal Liberty Digest.

            My dear eddie47d, I’m quite certain that our name adequately reflects our mission. Suggestions from you are unnecessary and irrelevant. However, should we ever decide to start up a site that caters to socialists and communists, I’ll be sure to seek your input.

            Best wishes,
            Bob

          • djdrew103

            I’m sorry Bob, but I believe its you, with a strong tint of purposeful ignorance, that has missed the point once again. I don’t mind you leaning one way or the other, but a constant effort to head in one direction for the purpose of degrading a political leader, or in this case, President Obama, on each and every issue you find yourself capable of, is a far cry from truthful reporting on the issues. This column is and I will admit, a representation of your views, but never should be labeled a pursuit of Personal Liberty, if it is stained with bias that misleads and bends to the will of prejudiced (non-racial in nature as it is) opinion that succumbs to the pursuit of sensationalism.

            The original “phrase” may have been a suggestion by another news agency, but we surely can’t leave it to you to miss out on slurping it up and promoting the original idea and leave honesty and open true fact finding journalism at the door. Ed’s comments still stand truer than your own I’m sorry to say, as your rebuttal held little value or input to challenge his statements.

            You and your column have far too often leaned heavily towards “smite the current administration!” for any and everything you can dredge up from under the table, to claim a banner of fact finding truthful reporting. We don’t find articles such as the coverage of Mr. Paul’s inability to answer questions honestly at the republican debate, where he fell from grace so publicly in this citizens eyes, when asked “Should we allow a potential terminal patient to die, if they simply don’t have health insurance?” With stutters and stammers and long silence, he gave his answer through the seconds long hush of the auditorium as everyone sought to hear his answer, even if the crowd cheered the Republican’s truer hidden agenda by shouting “YES!”.

            When you lean so heavily each and every time to merely smiting the current Administration and find such happiness in resolve to burning your energies merely misleading people as to the health of the nation and those responsible, then we can tell your Republican agenda is more prominent and important than truth and liberty.

            We once looked to you for solid, informational sound input on health and finances when your notoriety proved more sound. Yet now, as you have to result to insinuating this response from Eddie somehow proved him a “socialist” and a “communist” shows that pity is due you. Somehow over the years, you have begrudgingly used the guise of liberty as a facade for promoting merely your whims, finding a fan base in others merely for hype and crowd pleasing antics.

            I myself am not a communist nor a socialist, and just because you might label someone as such just because they disagree with your promoting an article that obviously had an intention of doing nothing but spreading hype and gloom and darkness shows that possibly your inner soul has suffered. Rather, I enjoy my own personal right to pure honest journalism even if it does oppose my viewpoints, but never am I to fall prey to low level mud slinging, labeling it a pursuit to liberty for all.

            I frequent this column more often than not to take in the total viewpoints of all, weigh them as to their validity, and correlate their statements with truth and fact finding missions, in order to merely gain a sound perspective on what occurs in our world today. Unfortunately for you, that often involves totally disregarding your input, the input of articles you felt worthy and your attempts at sensationalism, but merely absorbing more intellectual input from others that post and their truer attempt at relying on facts to form an opinion rather than merely resorting to astounding melodramatic journalism.

            IMHO, overall, you have fallen far from your original agenda merely to keep grasp of a fan base, and wield your brand, and ought to do some serious soul searching or at least label your efforts and column with a truer name better befitting of your purpose. “We got Osama, now Kill Obama!”.

          • S.C. Murf

            Hey Bob how ya doin? I wanted to comment to drew 103, the fact that he did a lot of typing just to say he doesn’t like your viewpoint. I still don’t think he understood that it was a reporter from Obama’s home town newspaper that made the reference. And I believe that is one of the reasons that we are in this mess because people like 103 just don’t get it and prefer to keep their heads buried and don’t like to make the tough decisions. Hang loose Bob and remember keep a low profile.

            Dear djdrew103,

            I appreciate your comments; especially the one referencing my “sound input on health and finances.” I don’t know how long you’ve been a subscriber, but I must address a couple of points in which I believe you have erred. However, brevity not being your strong suit, I’m afraid I won’t be able to address them all. First, my comment was directed at eddie47d, who has displayed socialist if not communist leanings in his past postings. (eddie47d and I have carried on a few discussions.) I do not call everyone who disagrees with me a socialist or a communist. That would be foolish, as there are many reasons for disagreeing with my opinions. I love having discussions about those as long as they are kept on an adult level.

            I’m not sure what you mean by: “… but we surely can’t leave it to you to miss out on slurping it up and promoting the original idea and leave honesty and open true fact finding journalism at the door.” It is a fact that Steve Chapman wrote the words “midnight in a coal mine.” It is also a fact that Obama’s popularity is plummeting and there are more and more rumblings from prominent Democrats that a primary challenge is a possibility. Where did I leave “honesty and true fact finding journalism at the door?” And you do understand, don’t you, that I write fact-based opinion? I am a columnist, not a journalist, and I make no pretext of neutrality.

            If you are a discerning reader of this site and/or of The Bob Livingston Letter (www.boblivingstonletter.com, subscription required) you know that my disdain is for the political class in general, who have long stolen from and snookered the American people to the benefit of themselves, the corporatocracy, the military-industrial complex and their bankster friends. Mr. Obama has put himself out front defending the political system, making himself an easy target. But the fact that his name is followed by a D rather than an R is irrelevant to me. PLD came into existence in late 2008, at the end of the Bush presidency, so you will not see a lot of criticisms of him in our archives. However, I am no fan of the Bush presidency and have criticized often his policies of warmongering, theft of our liberties and profligate spending. If you read my monthly newsletter, which has been in publication for 42 years, you will know that party doesn’t matter to me. I have stated before that the parties are two sides of the same coin.

            There are many more points I could address, however I notice that I’m becoming as verbose as you, so I will end it here.

            Best wishes,
            Bob

            That fact that you come here is a little to obvious to all that had to read your spew.If your not a socialist loving marxist named lee I would be surprised.You apparently like to here your self talk,I don’t that’s why I’m here to get to the bottom of this crap that you call a gubmnt.I see you for what you are and it’s not pretty but hey everyone has an opinion.That’s what I like about this site,I can see who you are and where your coming from and that your scared to death that the only person that can change this pile of crap is Ron Paul and I’m here to see it happen.This time millions of people are taking a second look and you can’t seem to stop them with your insults to a fine man.Good luck in the coming election,I hope for your sake you have gotten your one way ticket out of here.

          • eddie47d

            I see Bob himself is playing the commie card with false accusations. You can call me a LiberalLibertarian,and even a socialist at times but not a commie. You lost on that one Bob.

            Dear eddie47d,

            As usual, you have seen only what you wanted to see. I did not call you a socialist or a communist. I said you have displayed socialist if not communist leanings in the past. That you cannot deny and still maintain any credibility.

            Regards,

            So many words, djdrew103, so little substance.
            As a matter of fact picking on Obama, who is the antithesis of Personal Liberty, very much fits the name of Bob’s website.

          • DaveH

            Maintain? Bob is just being polite. Eddie has had no credibility for a long, long time.
            And Eddie, you are as far away from being a Libertarian as anybody can get. Don’t flatter yourself.
            Wait for it. Wait for it. Here it comes — Baaaaaraaaak!

          e, you obviously aren’t a coal miner, and you’re not a coal miner union, or you’d be beyond pissed at your White House ‘god.’ When Obummer decided to run for prez, he said the coal industry will take it in the shorts (it’s not a “green” industry, bubba). That means that if you’re a COAL MINER, YOU get to take it in your shorts, too.
          Ergo, Obummer can say whatever he wants about the “downtrodden working man” or taking care of the ‘middle class’ or any other lame way of saying it, the coal industry is headed for hard times. Coal miners will soon become a thing of the past, and it’s all because of the White House ‘God’ that you and your like-minded, empty-headed twit chums help put there.
          He’s managed to combine the worst traits of progressivism, socialism, communism, fascism and God knows what else to get his anti-American, freedom-hating schemes into existence. Do yourself a favor, e, and talk to some coal miners. Ask them if they know what’s in store for the coal industry and THEIR JOBS. Good luck with that, Bubba.
          ENJOY.

          • eddie47d

            SC seldom says anything positive and she is true to nature once again. Coal Miners are the hardest working men in America and I believe the second most dangerous. (working on a fishing trawlers is number one as of last year). Coal is dangerous and that is why we must find alternatives. No one is putting the coal miners down just the product they have to go after. The majority of Mercury poisoning comes from coal and all the other health hazards surrounding that fuel. Why do so many coal miners have Black Lung Disease SC. You never tell the truth about anything only lopsided babel.

      Hillary is just as bad as Bama and she is just as nuch a Socialist as Bama, she wants your rights and guns, and is in business with the UN to take them both. If America doesn’t get Ron Paul in office, America will be a thing of the past, we have 70 some in congress that are regestered Socialist, they think that the citizens need to be subjects so they can do to them what they want. They are busy tearing apart our Constitution and stealing our rights, as we speak. This Socialist government is redefining the class system, they get it all and the subjects get what little is left over. Wake up America. America is in the same place that Germany was in the early thirties. Check it out!!! Semper Fi.

        Your so right she is just as bad and like her husband he was very left leaning. There both Sociaist but, like her husband did, I think she would have listened to what happened in the 2010 election and would have invited and listened to the republican plan for job growth, and stop the spending and bring down the US debth. The republicans have passed more bills and sent them to the Senate, only to be overlooked and not brought up for vote by Harry Reid who is also a major problem. Like Paul Ryan plan and the party of six all just to be thrown out.

            Thank you dufas-duck. That is the sort of information Patriots need to help guide us in donations and votes.

            These 70 so called Congressional Democrats are nothing short of TRAITORS. They’re COWARDS without even the courage of their convictions to run for election as what they are COMMUNISTS!!! Every one of them MUST be voted OUT of or ejected FROM office!

            What a difference Fifty years makes. When I worked for the Air Force in the late fifties, I was given a list or organizations and was asked if I belonged to any of them. I poured over the list diligently and couldn’t find a one I was affiliated with and thought “Well, there goes my new job” but such was not the case. They were all socialist and communist organizations and if I had of said yes, I would not have gotten the job. Now these people are all exempt. By the way Bob, thanks for putting Eddie in his place. I just wish that people with that attitude would have to be forced to live in China for example (not Hong Kong I mean China) for a couple of years or Russia back when it was the Soviet Union not now because they have even learned and profited by their mistakes and wonder why in the world the USA is hell bent for leather going down that path because it doesn’t work.

            Sheila Jackson-Lee’s district is designed for her by the Democrat Party. It is jerrymandered over half of Houston. At the 2008 election, there were people voting as many as five times. In the 2010 election a number of people signed up as poll watchers. She had a fit because they were “intimidating” her voters. Then the poll watchers noted that she was catching the voters between signing in and the voting machines to ask them to vote for her – a federal voting violation. She said she didn’t know it was illegal and they let her walk. The present GOP majority at the state is trying to redesign her district but some judge has ruled that they can’t do that. Apparently the judge wants all Democrat-designed districts to remain the same as they are now even though the state is obligated to create several new districts with an even number of voters in each.

        • CJM

          Ellen: The books you cite may provide an interesting read, but half the garbage they write is exactly that—-garbage. People who write these tell-all books have a personal axe to grind and the more stories they can put in it to make the individual look worse than they really are is added to the mix. Yes, most of us have seen how Hillary has changed in her political views; we don’t need hungry authors out on their duff to tell us what we already know, so why feed them? Within 6 months after the honored messiah of the Oval Office is out on his duff, we will be seeing many tell-all books and a few will have even bigger lies than what the self-anointed one ever told to the American public so will you believe those folks too? Just asking. At any rate, Hilliary doesn’t command the respect she had before the skinny one with the fat wife took over–he put her in as Secretary of State so he could have control over the Clintons. There is just one problem with that: Bill isn’t easy to control and the liberals in DC are still trying to muzzle him. Fat chance of that ever happening, wouldn’t you think!

    • eddie47d

          He didn’t steal the nomination. Hildebeest & 0bummer were called into a meeting with the bliderberg before the primary election & they were told what roles they would play and how the election would work out.

    • lkar

      NO! BHO needs to run. Do not try and primary another Democrat. This 2012 vote needs to be about HIS policies and HIS parties performance in office. If you run another Democrat, then they can just lie about their true ideology (well they do anyway,but we can hold them on their record).
      Running Hillary will not change this ideology, but the electorate will be in a frenzy to “elect the first female president”. Change the word female to black and you will have a repeat of 2008! Morons herd vote and give a rats ars about issues!

      • http://Windows7 Ellen

        Agree!!!

      • JUKEBOX

        At least a woman cannot “LIE” about being female, unless she is a transgender. Obama consistently lies about being “BLACK”, when he is only half black. Why doesn’t he call himself “White”, because he is as much white as he is black. By the way, where is the “WHITE CONGRESSIONAL CAUCUS” in all this controversy? Oh, I forgot, there’s not one, because that would be “RACIST”.

        • CJM

          Jukebox: The mulatto in the Oval Office has not lied about being black. He made it perfectly clear that referring to himself as black is his choice; he has turned his back on his white heritage because taht is what he wants. No biggie; most of the mixed race people do select one over another and refer to themselves by that choice. It is a matter of preference and nothing else. And, by the way, stating his choice is the ONLY honest statement he has ever made….everything else about this goon is as you say: L-I-E-S.

How about the $16 muffins they served at a conference? His October surprise may be that he has finally decided we are to have no more elections and he is now our dictator on an official basis.

      Thank God! I am so thankful that the people of this great country have not been merely spectators when they began to realize just what kind of change this wicked man had in mind for America! I believe that Obama has also realized that the people of this country were not going to allow this arrogant man to just “takeover” our beloved country. No indeed, far too many of our loved ones have fought and died for the freedoms that we the people enjoy today and we the people are not about to acquiesce to him and his marxist czar’s plan for “change!” It is hard for me to believe that anyone could be so arrogant as to think just because “he is” that we the people would just sit back and watch as he tears down our country, bit by bit and not do anything about it. I BELIEVE THAT HE IS REALIZING THAT THIS COUNTRY IS TRULY A COUNTRY MADE UP OF “WE THE PEOPLE!!!”

        I am forever reading all the “expert” opinions by all parties, Dem. Rep. Inds. Teapartiers, liberals conservatives etc; ad infiniteum. Have the multitudes of commentaries on who’s to blame for the terrible mess America is in. It is not the present president, last president, congress, but the American public voters, who sit back and continue to reelct the same old deadbeat, nimcompoops, year after year. Am waiting to hear anyone mention God as having any part in our affairs of government, business and our elections, past and future. If my memory serves me correctly, America was established by A Soverign God, mightly blessed beyond any other nation ever to exist. I would remnind all that our every existing moment is directly under His All Wise Control. God has, in His Wisdom, allowed us to remain as a world power far longer than any other nation which has ver existed.
        Why, because we, as a whole, had been obedient to His Commandments. Looking back,, we can readily see where our National decline became. Something for you to meditate on!! God has spoken to us and instructed us what to do, to heal our land. I realize tha the familiar Scripture that speaks to a land being healed, is directed towards Israel, but also believe tht He considers us as as His people. IfAmerica repents of their eveil and wicked ways,, cries out to God, He will hearf from on high and heal our land.

        As a final reminder of history, there has never been a Nation which went bankrupt finacially, but it first went bankrupt morally. Be warned America,yhe path you choose, can either restore our good fortunes or destroy America. The call is yours to make. As an individual, trhr choice you make can be the difference in where you willspend eternity. Gonna spend it either in Heaven or Hell!! I do hope I will see you in the rapture!!

        Enjoy your freedom, because it was not free!!

          Nicely stated, Grandpa. I have been saying that people should have their wayward congressional members recalled, but nothing has happened. Many of the problems we now have as a nation are due to the apathy of the American public. Some will do something, but others will simply follow the status quo and later lament “What has befallen us?” Apathy in or about politics is like oil and water–they don’t mix.

Also if the election were an honest one I do not believe any socialist left winger would win, The unions would be raising so much hell (as they have done and are doing)that honest voters would be fearful of even approaching the polling sight much less vote.

      A lot of American voters that are qualified under the Constitution to vote go armed. The thugs have not yet run into any of us. Turning an old guy in a wheel chair over is one thing. Another is trying to stop an American from voting. Black Panthers should not bring clubs to a gun fight.

      • eddie47d

        Republicans have been trying to halt folks from voting for about 4 decades now. In Wisconsin the Governor halted DMV clerks from handing out voter registration applications unless someone makes an issue of it and demands one. He also made it clear they can not be on display for voters to take.Some of us can see through Walkers charade.Before those 4 decades Southern Democrats were fond of pulling tricks on voters and found many ways to keep certain voters from arriving at the polling station. Anyone who stops someone from voting is a treasonous coward.

        • Robin from Arcadia, IN

          eddie… Then you agree that the Black Panthers hanging out at the polls are thugs?

            You are correct and they should not have been there(one of the two did live there so that leaves one) although they did not stop anyone from voting. It was much to do about nothing. Now if they had physically turned someone away and told them they can’t vote then that would be an issue. Unlike the Klan who did physically keep folks from voting.

    As I understand it, if a politician retires, he gets to keep the money in his compaign fund. If Oblama was to drop out of the race, he stands to pick up about $200,000,000 at last word I had. The longer he stays in the race, the more money he can pick up. Anyone know if this is true?

      That is incorrect-they do have some control over where the money is distributed, but they do not get to pocket the cash.

      We can only pray! That is if prayer is still allowed by then. GOD BLESS AMERICA!

        Possibly…if we all pray together, and for the same thing. I am not religious in the usual sense……but I believe that prayer is powerful, if enough people want something, and use their thoughts in a good way…..it’s worth a try…….we don’t seem to have much else at this point.

    • BigBadJohn

      ABSOLUTELY!

      I was adamant that whoever won the election in 2008 was a one term president. Because they were inheriting the most messed up economy that ANY president has EVER inherited.

      • Robin from Arcadia, IN

        BigBadJohn… The next election will top any ‘mess’ that was inherited at the last election. Our country has never seen the likes of what has happened since Barry has taken office. The ‘mess’ has increased a thousand fold!

        • BigBadJohn

          Robin. I can not argue with you.

          However, a big part of the issue is that BO was unable or unwilling to un-do what Bush and the republicans put in place, namely turning control of the government over to corporations.

Starting with Carter I voted for him then against him, Reagan voted for him then against him, GH Bush voted for him then against him, Clinton voted for him then against him, GW Bush voted for him then against him, same will hold true for this president. Too bad the only republican that I would vote FOR is Ron Paul and he will never get the nomination.

      Well since blacks make up about 35% in this country then a lot of whites also voted him in. Get your self ready for round II, he will get re-elected.

      • 45caliber

        To be honest, I think he will be reelected if EVERY black AND White voted against him! That’s why the SEIU are the ones selected to “repair” and program the voting computers!

        • Dan az

          That would be true if he really was going to run but he already said that he was a one time prez.many times.The only reason he is still campaigning is to lock in the voters for billary when he bails.So yes the machines will be rigged again.Heaven help us all.

      “I heartily accept the motto, — “That government is best which governs least”; and I should like to see it acted up to more rapidly and systematically.

    If the people are dumb enought to elect Hillary will be any different than Obama they are crazy. Wake up America and see what Hillary has done in New York State. She has raped New York when she was in congress. Look at the state of New York now. She gets a full pension, the best medical in the world and has put millions of american dollars in her pocket. DO NOT ELECT HILLARY TO ANY OFFICE LET ALONE THE PRESIDENCY. SOCIALISM FOR ANOTHER 4 YEARS. We the people deserve better. A government of the PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE, FOR THE PEOPLE. Not the polititions. They work for us and we should be able to fire them for not doing their job.

    • voteright2012

      I completely agree Vern. My previous post is still awaiting moderation, when it clears I hope everyone will take the time and watch the two youtube videos. In my book what we learn in those videos is equal to 5 years of Graduate Study in Civic Economics.

    • eddie47d

      Since every Congressional person gets those same benefits then why do you make it sound like Hillary is the only one? Whether Republican or Democrat. So it is a useless talking point until you are willing to go after them all Vern.

        Yes they all get these perks, BUT hillary gets more because she is a ex-prez wife. All congress doesn’t get round-the-clock protection for life like she does (as all ex-prez and wives do)

  • old as dirt

    When I was young a Marxist/socialist had about the same social standing as a pedophile. But even then they had infiltrated our educational system and were indoctrinating our children. They also made sure they got a good dose of Keynesian economics. Now they are numerous and brazen enough to go public and run openly Marxist candidates. Behold Obummer, the messiah of the far left. This has grown inside our borders while we were distracted with the good life. We ignored the symptoms of this cancer and now it threatens the very existence of the Republic. The weapon of our destruction is debt not atomic Armageddon. Just a few keystrokes on a keyboard at the fed and were all paupers struggling to survive. The ultimate “villains” are the “banksters” who ran the dollar into the dust. God help our children, they will suffer a long time for our mistakes.

    • Nadzieja Batki

      We keep forgetting that the Marxist/Socialists/etc.,or whatever they call themself to disguise their intentions, are all incrementalists. If (as if dishonest people could be honest)they told what their intentions were for this country every sane human would defend this country. But they weaseled their way into the major institutions and changed them from within and we barely noticed. We notice now because the change is abhorrent.

      We have no idea who he is and that is the problem. He’s had all his records sealed so that we don’t find out the truth, at least he thinks we won’t find out, but many of us are on to him. Those who care to open their eyes and use their brains, that is.

      Apparently the government thinks it’s okay to have a FAKE certificate of live birth (COLB) from Hawaii. You can get one too after living in Hawaii for only one year. It will say you were born in a hospital there when in fact you were not.

      Obama was born in Kenya, just as his grandmother said he was and as this article http://web.archive.org/web/20040627142700/eastandard.net/headlines/news26060403.htm written in 2004 states.

      His COLB states he was born in Hawaii (a LIE). The article can only be found via archives. It has been removed from the newspaper/magazine it originally appeared in. Thank God for archives.

      Somebody is telling a lie, either Hawaii or his grandmother. I believe his grandmother. As I’ve said before, COLBs are given out like candy on halloween.

      Lets see what happens if you or I try this BS and see if we get away with it. My bet is we wouldn’t. We’d get jail terms for fraud and whatever other charges they can manufacture.

      Also, it has been documented that the SS# Obama is using is also not his. Belongs to someone else.

    You know ignoring the Hillary factor in this cycle is problematic to say the least. In this race we have a flip-flopper establishment republican Romney and two idealoges in Perry and Bachman as far as leaders in this race. It is the moderates who will win the election this time. If the democtats want to not lose Congress and the White House this time around they will be forced to draft Hillary.
    As Sec. of State she has handled herself fairly well, kept out of controversy by not criticizing “the one”. and has maintained her base. She would be hard to beat. If that were to happen and she run then the republicans would have to show their cards and lay out a solid step by step plan to recovery with endorsements. The pre-election rhetoric will not cut it.

  • Bob Marshall

    The Bilderberg Group had expected Hillary to be president because of her experience. However in one of their meetings it was determined after talking to and interviewing Obama that he would be a good solider and if elected would do the right thing.i see Hillary to be as dangerous as Obama in the long run.

    Beware of Homeland Security Training for Local Law Enforcement, by An Insider
    By James Wesley, Rawles on March 30, 2011 8:28 PM

    I’ve been in law enforcement for the past 18 years. I have attended a variety of training over those years. During the 1990s, most training I attended was community-oriented, sponsored by local agencies or private companies specializing in police training. Themes common to training of the past included topics such as Constitutional rights, community partnerships, youth-oriented programs and problem-oriented policing.

    During the past several years, I have witnessed a dramatic shift in the focus of law enforcement training. Law enforcement courses have moved away from a local community focus to a federally dominated model of complete social control. Most training I have attended over the past two years have been sponsored by Department of Homeland Security (DHS), namely the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

    No matter what topic the training session concerns, every DHS sponsored course I have attended over the past few years never fails to branch off into warnings about potential domestic terrorists in the community. While this may sound like a valid officer and community safety issue, you may be disturbed to learn how our Federal government describes a typical domestic terrorist.

    These federal trainers describe the dangers of extremists and militia groups roaming the community and hiding in plain sight, ready to attack. Officers are instructed how to recognize these domestic terrorists by their behavior, views and common characteristics. State data bases are kept to track suspected domestic terrorists and officers are instructed on reporting procedures to state and federal agencies. The state I work in, like many others, have what is known as a fusion center that compiles a watch list of suspicious people.

    So how does a person qualify as a potential domestic terrorist? Based on the training I have attended, here are characteristics that qualify:

    Expressions of libertarian philosophies (statements, bumper stickers)

    Second Amendment-oriented views (NRA or gun club membership, holding a CCW permit)

    Survivalist literature (fictional books such as “Patriots” and “One Second After” are mentioned by name)

    Self-sufficiency (stockpiling food, ammo, hand tools, medical supplies)

    Fear of economic collapse (buying gold and barter items)

    Religious views concerning the book of Revelation (apocalypse, anti-Christ)

    Expressed fears of Big Brother or big government

    Homeschooling

    Declarations of Constitutional rights and civil liberties

    Belief in a New World Order conspiracy

    A recent training session I attended encouraged law enforcement agencies to work with business owners to alert police when customers appear to be stockpiling items. An example was given that a federal agent was monitoring customers at a well known hunting and fishing retail outlet and noting who was purchasing certain items. This is something to remember the next time you purchase a case of ammo at one of these popular outdoor sports retail stores.

    Methods of developing evidence of terrorist activity from virtually any search have also been discussed. Various common materials which may be associated with homemade explosives are listed, such as lengths of pipe, gunpowder, matches, flammable liquids and fireworks.

    Officers are told when these items are found, they can be listed as bomb making materials. The training even goes so far as to instruct officers that the items are cleverly disguised as legitimate, such as gasoline stored near a lawn mower, pipes stored in a shop building or gunpowder stored with reloading materials.

    One course I attended used the example of a person employed as a plumber being the target of a search warrant. In this example, the officers were told how to use his employment as a plumber as further evidence of terrorism. The suspects employment would be described as an elaborate scheme to justify possessing pipes and chemicals so as to have bomb making materials readily available.

    Based on this example, all plumbers are potential pipe bomb makers.

    All gun dealers are plotting to provide arms to gangs or terrorists.

    All pest control companies are preparing mass poisonings.

    By using this logic, simply having the ability to do something criminal automatically makes the person guilty of plotting the crime. With all the various methods of manufacturing methamphetamine, it would also be easy to claim that a disassembled clandestine drug lab was located during the search. In other words, it is easy to frame anyone for possessing bomb making materials (or other crimes) if the officer knows what items to list in the report and how to link these items to terrorism.

    Another common tactic used in DHS sponsored training is the slander of certain ideologies by linking an erroneous characteristic to a particular group. Here are some examples:

    These groups hold the anniversaries of certain dates as significant such a Ruby Ridge, Waco and Hitlers birthday

    They oppose abortion, support gun rights and are affiliated with the Ku Klux Klan

    They are fearful of big government, espouse support for the Constitution and want to kill police officers

    These groups collect firearms, survivalist books and explosives

    These extremists read books such as Patriots, One Second After and The Anarchist Cookbook

    They are religious zealots, reading the book of Revelation, speak of the second coming of Christ and plan mass murders to summon the end of the world

    These people grow their own food, raise livestock and plot attacks on commercial food production facilities
