The Smell of Defeat

May 26, 2011 by  

The Smell of Defeat

As the parade of potential Presidents of the United States marches toward 2012, I can’t help but notice there’s a scent on the breeze. Watching the Democrats and the corporate media circle the wagons around their idol, it finally occurred to me what the putrescent odor is: fear.

And this fear isn’t the usual vote-Republican-and-you-will-end-up-freezing-to-death-on-some-street-corner-and,-by-the-way,-they-are-evil-racists fear. It’s more of the President-Barack-Obama-is-only-slightly-more-deserving-of-a-second-term-than-Jay-Carney-is-of-a-main-event-fight-with-Floyd-Mayweather-Jr. fear. So cue the corporate media.

MNSBC comedian Chris “Tingle-boy” Matthews, noteworthy for nestling most joyously in President Barack Obama’s pocket, has announced he wants nothing to do with any of Obama’s challengers. There was a time when a self-proclaimed journalist would be exiled to the celebrity-rehab beat for that sort of statement. In the age of Obama, Matthews will probably get a contract extension.

But be fair to Matthews. Unlike the rest of the tinfoil-hat brigadiers who have made MSNBC a funhouse-mirror image of a reputable news outlet, he has never even pantomimed legitimacy. During one of his “interviews” with fellow corporate media bobbleheads on his socialist shriekfest Monday night, Matthews has already made up his mind (or had it made up for him) regarding the potential 2012 GOP slate: “I don’t want an interview with any of these guys.”

Er, Chrissy, not to burst your bubble there, but you have obviously made the classic blunder which befalls most liberal media stooges: You actually think you are that important. It’s not as if Romney, Huntsman or Pawlenty are clamoring for the chance to sit at your table and drink bad coffee while you read Democratic Party-scripted talking points and refuse to let them get a word in edgewise. I also suspect that all three — along with the other, more conservative candidates — are a little too big for cable news’ never-going-to-be-ready-for-primetime crew.

And with the profoundly stupid Matthews going so far as to call former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin “profoundly stupid,” conservatives will avoid his channel like Ed Schultz avoids the heart-smart section on the menu. And MSNBC’s campaign-season programming will feature Democrats talking to Democrats — meaning the rubber-room programming which has made MSNBC an industry joke will stay unchanged and unwatchable.

Over at New York Magazine (yes, it’s still alive), the most recent issue touted a long-on-words, short-on-actual-sources piece titled “The Elephant in the Green Room,” designed to continue the Democratic Party’s myth that Roger Ailes runs the GOP. While the piece was written for the liberal faithful (making you wonder why it was printed at all, considering the liberal faithful already believes Fox News and the GOP are inextricably linked), it was really just a compendium of dubious innuendo and outright nonsense: “You can’t run for the Republican nomination without talking to Roger.”

Definitive statements like that look good on paper and are easily believed by Democrats who have heard that nonsense from their dear leaders for the better part of a decade. Of course, New York Magazine is about as legitimate in the world of journalism as a junior high school yearbook, but the question is: Why now?

The answer, my friends, is fear. Obama’s unparalleled incompetence has left him highly vulnerable to a solid challenge. The sock puppets at the low-forehead media outlets are lambasting conservative candidates and anyone who won’t read Soros-authored talking points as news copy because they have realized their beloved Obama can lose. The economy has not recovered and isn’t showing strong signs of doing so to any great extent. Gas prices remain stratospheric, and Obama’s response has been to continue the Democrats’ policy of protecting foreign oil interests instead of American consumers. The execution of Osama bin Laden provided a negligible polling bump. (It should be noted that Obama may have coughed that one up himself. Hey, Mr. President: When Navy SEALS kill the world’s most wanted terrorist, try cutting references to yourself down to the mid-30s per page in your congratulatory remarks.)

In fact, Obama has even begun conducting opposition research on New Jersey Governor Chris Christie — despite the fact that Christie isn’t running. But the real joke mid all this sound and fury is that a Presidential reelection campaign normally focuses on accomplishments. You have about 18 months, Mr. President. Accomplish something.

    Ben,
    You must be joking. History shows us that this far in advance of an election there is little accuracy in the polls and that should bring some relief to the Republicans. If anything stinks it’s the motley crew of wanna bes and also rans from years past. Just look at Newt: not one month in and he’s telling us that anyone who repeats what he said on Sunday, even if it’s in context and accompanied by video, it’s a lie. That tingling feeling in your leg is the sign of the stroke your having at the thought of this being your best hope for the White House. Rudi can’t get through a speech without mentioning 9/11 (his big claim to fame), Gary Johnson …. Gary who? Mitt is still trying to shake his health care history, Ron Paul is still too far out there for the average voter and the list goes on. No, there’s little sign of fear on the left at this point. Maybe in January when the real candidates come around.

    • Jay

      Kinetic, are you trying to convince us or yourself?

      • http://www.reformdc.com nax777

        Things stink on so many levels.

        The US reached a zero population growth in the mid 80’s our leaders increased their yearly appetite for immigration. The legal yearly immigration rate went from 100,000 to 1,000,000. From the years 2000 to 2010 our leader’s yearly appetite for legal immigration grew to 3,000,000. At present levels the US population will swell another 130 million to 442 million by 2040! This is a very conservative estimate. US immigration rate is the sole reason for overpopulation in the US today and tomorrow!

        It is irrational to think that any single payer social program will work best. It is irrational to think that nations can tax its way out of poverty. It is irrational to believe that a power convinced that you have nowhere else to go will do your biding.

        A true Conservative and a true Liberal agree on one thing though for different reasons. Any single payer social program is a nutty idea! Now each believes that it’s not so nutty as long as their side is managing it.

        We can destroy the power by replacing them with citizens that can be immediately removed by citizens should they grow a greedy bone and never serve for a life time. We must take control ourselves. Please join with us at Goooh.com you might be able to click on my name. This will take you to my link page that links to Goooh.com, NumbersUSA.com and SBA-list.org.

          That is actually very, very good. Thank you.

      • Nadzieja Batki

        He is attempting to convince himself.
        The Dems are afraid so that is why there is so much blustering and lying and bluffing.This always scares the voters who cannot make up their minds for themselves.

        • Jay

          That’s what i’m thinking.

    • DaveH

      And there you have it, Folks. First Kinetic whines about the Republicans recycling politicians from the past, then he disses Gary Johnson for being a relative unknown. Do I detect some inconsistency there? Inconsistency from a Liberal? How unusual.
      And Ron Paul is too far out there? Why, because he believes in Constitutional Law? It just shows you, Folks, how far these bankrupt Liberals have taken this nation towards the chaos of too much Unconstitutional Federal Government.

      • http://smellofDefeat Tony

        To DaveH and Others:
        Lets not fool ourselves. The slate of Repub. candidates stink. No offense, but, we have to be realistic. Good examples, Mitt Romney is
        complete plastic and a flip-flopper especially when coming to health
        care. Tim Pawlenty,when gov. of Minn., was responsible for major infrastructure negligence that lead to the collapse of the bridge
        in Minneapolis in 2008. Then, Newt Gingrich is a retread that had to retire from congress in the 1990′s because of ethic charges. Finally,
        Sarah Palin!?! Honestly, read the recent book by a former worker of hers called “Inside the Palin campaign”. It will reveal her ineptitude
        . The only good candidate, as mentioned upteen time, is Ron Paul. The
        Repubs. won’t give him a chance. This is the equivalence of the 1984 election just in reverse. Obama is going to win big unless the Repubs.
        come up with a better candidate. I re-emphasize, i’m a conservative myself. How embarassing right now. What happen in the late Jack Kemp’s
        former seat in western New york is a sign of things to come for Repubs. unless they make a major about face. Thanks!!

        • JeffH

          “Sarah Palin!?! Honestly, read the recent book by a former worker of hers called “Inside the Palin campaign”. It will reveal her ineptitude”

          Seriously? You came to that conclusion from a book by a former Palin aide? Here is a disgruntled former Sarah Palin aide, Frank Bailey, who kept approx 60,000 Bailey/Palin emails, and you expect his book to be candid and honest?

          Who saves 60,000 emails anywhere? This guy had one thing on his mind…$$$$…and he obviously was willing to sell out Palin in the process. He’s got no morals or ethics. He obviously had the thought of a “tell all” book long before he was ever finished with Palin.

          You can do better than that can’t you?

          • Curtis S

            According to a story in New York magazine, Fox News chairman Roger Ailes no longer thinks very highly of Palin despite her frequent appearances on his network as a political analyst.
            “He thinks Palin is an idiot,” a Republican insider close to Ailes told the magazine. “He thinks she’s stupid. He helped boost her up. People like Sarah Palin haven’t elevated the conservative movement.”

        • Old Henry

          Tony:

          I am afraid there is more truth to what you say than most of us wnat to admit.

          Ron Paul is the answer, but as you say the GOP establishment will not let him get any traction. We The People will need to get him over the finish line. To hell with the GOP.

          Another change that must be made, and very, very soon, is the replacement of Boehner as Speaker!

          • http://www.personalliberty.com 150fowl

            I don’t believe there is any difference between the GOP and the Dems. They are both Socialist. If not this country would be a constitutional Gov. not the anti constitutonal Gov it is. Ron Paul his son and maybe 1 or 2 others in Gov. are for the constitution of this country. Vote for Ron Paul. Many many people are socilist and don’t even know it because of our education system from the 1st grade to as high as it goes. A recent interview of high school students showed 25% of them knew who our 1st president was.

        • Wayne937

          Huh? Tony, I wonder why Barney Frank, the man who helped bring down Fannie Mae, and Freddie Mac, Charles Ranger, the tax cheat, and a few others are still in Congress? Why wern’t they removed? They not only committed ethnic violations, they committed criminal violation as well, and are still governing the nation? This country is in a sad state of affairs. You had better clean your own side of the isle before coming into the other isle. Upholding these types of hypocrites, and criminals, shows us just what kind of a person you are. Shame on you. We Conservative will take care of our side of the isle, you and your other Liberal clean you side of the isle. We would all be a lot better off if this would only happen. Charles Rangel who is in charge of the tax dept did’nt even pay his own taxes A (Federal Violation) and his district voted him back in office again. Tony! this does not go well for most decent folks in this country. Would you have voted him back in office? Let me tell you how I feel. I don’t like dishonest people, in fact I despise them. Both sides of the isle has a few of them we need to get rid of them in 2012. I hope you will clean your side as well.

          • Christin

            Wayne,
            I agree.

            Evidentally, one can violate the Congressional Ethincs Charges AND be a criminal breaking the Rule of Law in America and STILL be a Congress man/woman… but We the People would be fired and loose our jobs… Two sets of standards, not fair…

            God does not value Government people over Private sector people.

            Who is to blame???
            The ‘law’ that states that you can still hold that office???
            Or is it the ‘STUPID voters’ who have NO ETHICS or Moral Compass / value system to ELECT LAW ABIDING, HONEST people.

            Maybe it is BOTH…

    • Kate8

      Kinetic – YOU must be joking. Do you really think anyone is going to change their mind in O’s favor? Too many of us see him for the corporatist-commie puppet that he is. Only Obots like you will continue to support him against all reason.

      I’m no fan of Rudy (another global corporatist), but at least his references to 9/ll have substance. As opposed to, say, John Kerry (he served in Viet Nam, you know), who continually congratulated himself for a scratch on the b*tt in a photo-opped skirmish which sent him home with a Purple Heart (and then he promptly turned on those he served with). Now THAT’S a joke.

      • http://certus-certus.blogspot.com Raymond Harbin

        KATE8, I LIKE YOUR STYLE–AND YOUR HOME COOKED TERMS–YOU REALLY GET YOUR POINT OVER– KEEP IT UP!! THERE ARE STILL OBASTUPES (LIKE THIS?), HIDING AND SHAKING IN DARKNESS, WHO ONLY COME OUT TO CROW LIKE AN A.M. ROOSTER, HAVING JUST THOUGHT UP A NEW LIE FOR OBAMA’S BENEFIT. I WISH IT WASN’T SO LONG UNTIL NOVEMBER 2012.

      • eddie47d

        Not sure why you felt the need to bring John Kerry up but he did serve and it doesn’t matter if his wounds were minor or extreme. There are several on this site who say we shouldn’t be in the Middle East and proclaim loudly that we should get out.They say American troops should be defending our American homeland. I agree yet Kerry protested loudly to get us out of Vietnam and that the war was an unnecessary lie. So you are a bit hypocritical in saying he is wrong but you are right when you are saying the same thing about our involvement in the Middle East. Are you a guardian of every one’s right to free speech or only if your side is saying it?

        • DaveH

          More nonsense and personal attacks from Eddie.
          Did Kate say anything about the validity of the Vietnam War, Eddie, one way or the other?
          And Free Speech? Your comments are almost always personal attacks in lieu of facts. Mental bullying. Yet you whine about others stifling Free Speech?
          Where do you come up with your garbage?

        • GRusling

          You miss the point on John Kerry. He used a “detail” that no one else I ever heard of considered using to get out of Vietnam early (after just four months) and his “Purple Hearts?” Guess who recommended him for each and every one? HE DID IT HIMSELF!

          His “WOUNDS” by the way, would have been called “scratches” by most of our fighting men and they MIGHT have put a bandaid on them, but that’s about it!

          Then he came home and LIED LIKE A DOG to the US Congress! If you think my remarks are a bit “Over The Top,” think again because I WAS THERE so he was talking about ME!

          I take it really personal when someone calls me a BABY KILLER, and he swore to tell the TRUTH, then testified to all his LIES which he swore he had PERSONAL KNOWLEDGE OF! Another lie.

          You expect me to just get over it? NOT A CHANCE! Not now and not ever. A lot of my friends, GOOD MEN, never came home from that hell-hole, and that lying, worthless excuse for a Navy Officer had the unmitigated gall to besmirch their memory?

          Who is Obama? THAT’S the real question for 2012, not who are those who may or may not run against him. We already know who most of them are, including their flaws, faults and failings, but we STILL don’t know who Obama is. Until he FILLS IN THE BLANKS Republicans need to hammer him RELENTLESSLY on his college transcripts, essays and his other WRITINGS, prior to his run for public office. Where, by the way, did his MONEY come from to start with? He darn sure didn’t INHERIT it from his family like Bush did, and he didn’t “MARRY” it because Michelle was as broke as he was.

          He’s supposedly a Lawyer? WHERE IS HIS LICENSE TO PRACTICE LAW? If he doesn’t have one, WHY NOT? What about his WIFE, Michelle? Where is her Law License? She was (supposedly) once a practicing attorney in Chicago, so WHY NOT NOW? We learned all about “Bill and Hillary” and their Law Practice while he was President so WHY NOT BARACK AND MICHELLE?

          All this STINKS TO HIGH HEAVEN if you ask me…

            The problem I have as a outsider to all your comments is this. I spend time reading your back and forth comments trying to figure out which side I should favor in the upcoming elections. I get nothing of value from all of you. Just mindless bickering not unlike from the politicans themselves. I’m a old coot and in the 40 plus years I’ve voted, I’ve never seen the time I couldn’t come up with some I liked. To me the pool of those running have become nothing but a sell out to the highest bidder of the corporations and rich regardless of there party. They have created a big mess and then point to the other party as the cause, and use there own failure to campaign on. Is there any hope left for everyday folks?

      • Wayne937

        Kate8, like I have said in many of my post, Kinetic and his type are a lost cause. They do not listen to reason. We are spinning our wheels trying to convince them to be responsible. This will never happen. I just feel sorry for them as they do not know any better.

        • April

          I agree with you Wayne937.

    • Michael J.

      Kenetic1,
      When it comes to Romney, I couldn’t agree more. He’s really a Democrat. And Newt is the same way, they both bluster Republican talking points, but if they succeed in getting elected we would see the same ole status quo. Rudi isn’t running and like you said, “Who is Gary Johnson?”

      The bigger question is who still believes in the voting process? I mean if people like Charlie Rangel and Harry Reid can get re-elected in spite of their performance record and mass coruption without even a peep out of the MSM as to the questionable election results, why be concerned with future election outcomes if you know your vote cannot possibly influence them anyway in this nuevo socialist style formerly known as a republic?

      My point is that blatant voter fraud has undermined voter confidence and an unsuspected change is about to unfold. So sleep-tite in your smugness, that way the abruptness of the upcoming genessis tsunami will only hurt afterwards.

      • GRusling

        Who is Gary Johnson?

        How about the “very Successful” and popular two-term Republican Governor of New Mexico! No bluster, no posturing and no BS, just “this is me and this is what I stand for” with the public record to back it up. Nothing “flashy” or “Hollywood” about his history, just a wealthy (not mega-rich) self-made man with a proven, conservative track record. Dull to the point of being boring he simply GETS THE JOB DONE and moves on to the next task.

        Johnson hasn’t spent all his time jet-setting around the world in search of “photo-ops,” which may be why you don’t know him, but his “record” and history are easily found and they’re solid as a ROCK!

        Who is Gary Johnson? Possibly the next President of the United States if Republicans can only get their priorities straight. He could chew up Obama and spit him out in a debate because he KNOWS exactly who he is and what he believes in…

        • Michael J.

          GRusling,
          My question, “Who is Gary Johnson” had the desired effect. I know Gary Johnson is a conservative Libertarian on par with Ron Paul, trouble is most people still don’t. Keep spreading the word.

        • Old Henry

          G:

          Your last paragraph is EXACTLY why the establishment GOP will not allow Gary to get any traction. Same as Ron Paul.

          Hoever, if We The People get our heads out of our rectal sockets either one, or both, of those two can be OUR nominee.

      • Wayne937

        Michael, Gary Johnson had been a governor of New Mexico. I heard him last night on Fox News talking with Sean Hannity, yes Liberals, on Fox News, the truth station. I liked what he said about bringing this country our of debt and etc. The only thing I didn’t like about him is he is for legaling all types of illegal drugs. Yes! Marijuana, and all the hard drugs such at heroin, and everything else. I do not approve of legalizing these dangerous drugs. I was a cop for 27 years and I know of the results of what happens to people under the influence of these drugs. I have even seen people leap from tall building to their death. Anyone who works around this type of people strung out on drugs will tell you the same thing. It is ludicrous to even think of legalizing these drugs. I would not vote for him for this very reason, but at least he was honest enough to tell us how he felt. This is more than most Communist Democrats will do. They lie to us to get voted in to office then do what they want to do, ie, to help themselves.

        • Albino.

          Come on Wayne937……. You said you where a cop for 27 years? How may people did you see strung out on weed throwing them selfs off of buildings? I know lots of people that smoke Marijuana all of them being people that have jobs within the power industry as electrical, instrumentation, mechanical and control engineers! Some of them have smoked MJ since university and now earn $200,000+ a year. We all pay our taxes on time, have never had ONE hand out from the government and most have families! There are a lot more weed smokers out there than you realize, we just smoke behind closed doors and no we don’t buy from the street! MJ is no worse that Tobacco as both cause lung disease, but hell the human race has smoke for thousands of years! All the violence around MJ is due to prohibition, do we as a country EVER learn from history or are we doomed to repeat the same mistakes? Prohibition of alcohol brought around times of violence, so why do we think the same old rhetoric is going to work for MJ? People will still find a way to obtain MJ and you’ll just spend billions in trying to stop something you can’t! Now the true gateway drug is alcohol as more people die from alcohol than any of the schedule 1 drugs! Why aren’t you calling for another prohibition, arr yes it makes to much tax money and the alcohol lobbing groups have gotten VERY large and have deep pockets! Come on you should know this after being a cop for so long. Look MJ, Opium, Peyote and coco leaves are all natural and where supposedly placed on this earth by your God.

          Genesis 1:29. The New American Standard Translation.
          Then God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the surface of all the earth, and every tree which has fruit yielding seed; it shall be food for you.”

          Genesis 1:29. The Authorized Version.
          And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.

          1 Timothy 4:1-4. The New American Standard Translation.
          4:1 But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons,
          4:2 by means of the hypocrisy of liars seared in their own conscience as with a branding iron,
          4:3 men who forbid marriage and advocate abstaining from foods, which God has created to be gratefully shared in by those who believe and know the truth.
          4:4 For everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected, if it is received with gratitude;

          1 Timothy 4:1-4. The Authorized Version.
          4:1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
          4:2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
          4:3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.
          4:4 For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving

          The Bible speaks for itself. It clearly says that God created these plants for our use and says terrible things about those who seek to command abstinence or advocate abstaining from plants which God has created. Criminal sanctions command abstinence and are extreme examples of advocating abstinence.

          • Jana

            Sorry Albino,
            You must first learn to use your tools. Going back to the King James it actually says nothing about plants, it states:

            1 Tim 4:4
            4 For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:
            KJV
            You are right, the Bible speaks clearly and for itself. You have to be very careful and NOT get into the liberal versions of the Bible. These are versions that men, and not necessarily God’s men either, have changed God’s word.
            It is always safe to use the King James as we have tools to go back to the original Greek and Hebrew words. This is why people think the Bible was written by man, because some of these versions WERE written by men.

          • Albino.

            “liberal versions of the Bible” exactly how many versions are there?

            Oh yes you know King James was as corrupt as any modern day politician, right?

            In 1597–98, James wrote two works, The True Law of Free Monarchies and Basilikon Doron (Royal Gift), in which he argued a theological base for monarchy. In the True Law, he sets out the divine right of kings, explaining that for Biblical reasons kings are higher beings than other men, though “the highest bench is the sliddriest to sit upon”.

            Did you know the Catholics had a terrorist plot to kill King James during the eve of the state opening of the second session of English Parliament.. Google the Gunpowder Plot, oh how we never learn form history!

          • Jana

            Albino,
            You have now told the world how you do NOT believe God’s word, unless you can turn it into what you want it to say.
            Your bad.

          • Albino.

            Jana….. Where does it say in my post “I do NOT believe in God’s word”???

          • Cawmun Cents

            Versions of the Bible have little to do with changing the content.Sorry Jana but for this purpose I must agree with Albino.King James was a man.No different from any other man except that he happened to be protestant.Insisting on one form of scripture or another belies the intent of the Holy Spirit.Not a good thing to argue over.I think what Albino.doesnt realize is that the law of the land must be followed.The scripture says that all governments are in power because God put them in power.It also says to obey your governments laws.If Marijuana is an illegal substance,then you should not ingest it according to scripture.In this way it would be sinful unless you acted according to lawful statutes.The Bible makes no mention of marijuana per se,so one must go by the intent of the laws of his nation regarding any abuses.

          • Jana

            Cawmun Cents,
            Wow, do I disagree with you on this.

            When you have a pattern, and cut out a shape from that pattern, then you use the shape that you cut out, for the next pattern, and continue to do this say 10 to 15 times and you take the original pattern, put it up to the 15th cut out piece, you will find out there is a huge discrepancy in size from the original pattern.
            Lets try this with a scripture.

            1 Cor 10:9
            9 Neither let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed of serpents.KJV

            (Serpents means sly, cunning artful malicious person; Satan. This going back to my Concordance.)

            1 Cor 10:9
            9 We shouldn’t put the Lord to the test as some of them did. They were killed by snakes. ****** UH WRONG!
            (from GOD’S WORD Copyright © 1995 by God’s Word to the Nations Bible Society. All rights reserved.)

            1 Cor 10:9
            9 Nor should we put Christ to the test, as some of them did and then died from snakebites.***** AGAIN, WRONG.

            Now you can see how these scriptures have changed, and we have no Bible Dictionary or Concordance (our tools) to go back to and have a better understanding from these versions.
            This example is just one scripture that I picked out but this is multiplied thousands of times over.
            The Bible is written for instruction and food for our souls. We need the truth, not some watered down version. We need whole milk, not milky water.
            There are many people out there who do NOT love the Lord, nor honor His Word and would change it. These people have sold out to Satan
            There is even a Skeptics Bible out there.
            Yes, it does matter what translation of the Bible we read because it DOES change it.

          • Albino.

            With the help of Richard Price, a Unitarian minister in London, and Joseph Priestly, an English scientist-clergyman who emigrated to America in 1794, he eventually arrived at some positive assertions of his private religion. His ideas are nowhere better expressed than in his compilations of extracts from the New Testament “The Philosophy of Jesus” (1804) and “The Life and Morals of Jesus” (1819-20?). The former stems from his concern with the problem of maintaining social harmony in a republican nation. The latter is a multilingual collection of verses that was a product of his private search for religious truth. He believed in the existence of a Supreme Being who was the creator and sustainer of the universe and the ultimate ground of being, but this was not the triune deity of orthodox Christianity. He also rejected the idea of the divinity of Christ, but as he writes to William Short on October 31, 1819, he was convinced that the fragmentary teachings of Jesus constituted the “outlines of a system of the most sublime morality which has ever fallen from the lips of man.” In correspondence, he sometimes expressed confidence that the whole country would be Unitarian, but he recognized the novelty of his own religious beliefs. On June 25, 1819, he wrote to Ezra Stiles Ely, “I am of a sect by myself, as far as I know.”

            Albino,
            This is the first of two that I am sending to you.
            This last post does not represent the way I feel, as it sounds like this poor man was trying to work out his own salvation. I hope he found the Truth. This is why we study God’s word to know that Truth.
            You have certainly put me into a wonderful Bible study, and for that I thank you.

            Albino, There are many Kings in the Old Testament that were really evil in God’s sight, but God still used them for His Glory.

            It doesn’t matter what kind of man King James was, he could have been the most evil or corrupt man on the planet, but God still put it in his heart to gather 72 scholars together to translate from Greek, Hebrew, Latin and Aramaic into the King’s English.

          • Jana

            Albino,
            You are right, you did not say that you did not believe in God’s word. But what you have done is twist it to new meanings, that are convenient to what you want to believe.

            you quoted:
            Gen.1:29
            Then God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the surface of all the earth, and every tree which has fruit yielding seed; it shall be food for you.”

            Using this translation does not give you the tools to go back to the original manuscripts to see what FOOD actually means. The original word is MEAT. Which literally does mean food, also it goes further to mean eating, meal, victuals. Notice it doesn’t say anything about smoking or inhaling it.

            You did state however, **********
            “The Bible speaks for itself. It clearly says that God created these plants for our use and says terrible things about those who seek to command abstinence or advocate abstaining from plants which God has created. Criminal sanctions command abstinence and are extreme examples of advocating abstinence”**************

            As a student of the Word of God, we must learn how to read with understanding. Using your own scripture verse it says:
            1Tim 4:1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
            (This means you need to be very careful. Satan is tricky and sneaky and we don’t need to be stoned or drunk or deceived when he is out seeking whom he may devour by using his sedusing spirits)

            Seducing spirits: seducing means imposter, misleader, deceiver. We can be deceived into thinking being high is actually closer to God, or we think clearer when we are high.

            1 Tim 4:3
            3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, WHICH GOD CREATED TO BE RECEIVED with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. KJV
            To Be Received doesn’t mean any old thing we want to stick up our nose, or smoke or inhale. It means exactly what God says, that He has made certain food for us that are good for us and we can partake of them AND,some things are not good for us.

            Rev 9:21
            21 Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.KJV
            Here the word sorceries means pharmakeia which means hallucinagens also going back to pharmakeus, druggist, poison by extension a sorcerer.

            Burning marijuana is one of the ways the magicians and sorcerers in the Old Testament induced visions and false prophecy. In order to convince the people and perform their magic, witchcraft and rituals , these sorcerers would utilize the hallucinagens by burning them and getting them into the air which resulted in drugging the masses of people and getting all of them high. This was NOT used by God or for God, but for satanic rituals.
            Weed is great as a medicine WHEN used properly, the same as is hydrocodone or other opiates it then becomes what God created to be received, for a purpose, which is a pain killer , not for mind control or an hallucinogen.

            Not too long ago I saw a reporter on TV reporting on the burning of marijuana. He actually got so high he couldn’t remember what he was talking about and couldn’t concentrate.He became goofy. God does not need goofy people, he wants us to be able to stand for HIM in full charge of our faculties.

      • Alex

        Puerto Rico?

        What really scares the fluff out of Reich Wingers is the idea of statehood for the District of Columbia—which would certainly add two Progressives to the Senate, most probably Black.

        It is time, of course, to remedy this decidedly unfair national embarrassment.

        Separate the stupid slaveowner monuments, the Smithsonian, the White Guy’s House, and the Capitol, and give the rest of D.C statehood and the representation all other Amerikans receive.

        Look, DC has a larger population than Wyoming, one that rivals Alaska, North Dakota, and Vermont.

        Granting statehood to the District of Columbia would be a major step forward in redressing this country’s woeful record of assimilation following the War of Southern Belligerence in 1865.

        Rather than welcoming the newly-freed African-Americans into the “free country” they were now citizens of, Amerikans refused them education, jobs, and choice of housing—the very people who were denied the right to evn learn how to read and write in some places were simply “cut loose”.

        Imagine if Amerikans had, as a nation, extended their hands to their Black brothers and sisters, rather than make them the focus of their hatred? Historic African-American intellectuals like Frederick Douglass and W.E.B. DuBois would be not in such small company, but would be representative of an emerging group of ‘important Americans’.

        The “Urban Black jungles” that so many of my fellow Caucasoids fear are, of course, a product of White America—that’s the way we wanted it after World War Two. Tom Brokaw’s “Greatest Generation”—God, what a joke THAT is!— used White Flight to escape the New America they were so scared and uncomfortable with—an America that might finally live up to all of the crap slavetraders like Tom Jefferson blathered about.

        And, please please pleae, do not play the tired card that goes like this: “Well, the the Italians were not liked, and they made it, and the Chinese, and the Irish….” That does not hold any water—show me the photographs of gleeful White American children gathered with their families beneath the swinging bodies of lynched Chines or Italians—-they do not exist! No, White Americans historically, as a whole, hold a special contempt for Black People—a weird sort of primal fear and loathing, edged at times with amusement. (If any of you wish to dispute this, which, in the nature of discourse I encourage, please do not just whine about how wrong I am—point things out–and especially direct me to examples of White Amerikan hatred toward peoples other than Blacks that matches or even approaches the vitriol, the legislation, and the murders meant to keep Blacks out of the American Mainstream.

        So, Puerto Rico? They have shown over and over that they have no wish to be swallowed into this beast of an abomaNation—but, D.C.? Hey, now we’re talking!!

        So

          Alex,

          Whites should have done more after the Civil War. A very good point indeed !

          Y’know Alex, what goes around comes around. The Whites in South Africa are getting tired. If you know what I mean. For all you White folks – The Blacks put a tire around the White Afrikaaner, poor gasoline in it, then light it.

          Also the Whites can’t live in central Africa, they have inferior genetics to the Blacks. SO they keep dieing off all over Africa – Your White in Africa your dead pretty much these days. To bad the Black Africans won’t reach out to the White “Afrikaaners”.

          Then you got Whites living in the inner city where the population is predominantly Black. The White kids get beat up alot. Hey, don’t blame me ! How would you feel if your ancestors were SLAVES !

          ALex, I’m “White” – but I’ve learned the ancient martial of “RUn Fu” (“RUn Fool !”). ……..

          • Wayne937

            pete, I am dead serious when I say this. The blaok population in African should thank the white population for their advancement. If if had not been for the whites settlers they would still be plowing with oxens and using shovels. The white folks brought them out of the medievel times. They should show a lot of respect for these white folks.

        • Rod

          Other than a few misspelled words your retort was fairly well written. I don’t agree with very much that you wrote however. I was raised in Michigan and I knew a lot of blacks. One of the things that I learned was that, for what ever reason, blacks are the most racist people that I have ever met.

          You also mentioned the civil war.. how many thousand and thousands of “whites” died in that war to free the blacks. You said nothing about that. Blacks were not treated as equals immediately, I understand that. Some things take time. Women were not treated as equals to white men either. For the most part, that has changed. And again, right or wrong, how many blacks voted to change the laws allowing blacks, and for that matter woman, the right to vote or own land. Oh I’m so sorry for giving the “majority” of whites credit for discovering what was right and then having the nerve to correct injustices.

          You seem to think that blacks were owed something after the civil war. I suppose that you also believe in reparations. There was white flight in many areas because when blacks moved in crime increased. I don’t see the same things happening today. Please understand that most things do not happen overnight. Even though I think that Obama is not a very good president it has nothing to do with his skin color. I didn’t like Carter either. I must be prejudiced against peanut farmers then. Oh, in case you missed it white America elected Obama. I just don’t like Obama’s policies.

          I enjoyed reading your piece. Keep writing. I don’t agree with you but I will fight to the death for your right to say what you feel.

          • Wayne937

            When I see how some of those poor black folks are living over in Africa, the black population in this country should be glad they are hear. I feel that all people, regardless of race, are all God’s children, and should be treated equal. No one race should be treatd unequal to another race. I think a lot of black folks still hold a grudge against the white folks in this country. They should not as I have explained above, if they had not been brought here they would still be in Africa. There are not any whites today that should be held responsible for what the folks did more than a hundred years ago. There has never been any slaves in anyone’s life time that is living today. So for those of you who still hold a grudge against the white folks please get over it, and let’s get on with our future.

          Hey! watch it Curtis. I think a lot of this is not the fact they don’t know how to spell, most of the misspellings are typos, not ignorance. I am speaking for myself. I just checked one of my post I made before this one, and I spelled hear, meaning to hear with the ears, with here, meaning come here (location) this very minute. I even check my work, but as soon as I make a post I can see my error. If there was some way to edit this, you would see a lot less misspellings. This is IMHO.

    My sense is, Ron Paul is the underground FAV.

    What you won’t see and hear, on the CFR-controlled Media, is discussion of that fact. The last thing MSM is going to do is help out the Voters. Their job is to “manipulate” the Electorate. They already have their two selections, along with a 3rd decoy. Last time, it was between Hillary & Soetoro. Ol’ Barry’s still an option until the Birther thing (Jerome Corsi book) finally gets that kick in the pants that will occur, in the next 6 months.

        He knows what might happen to him like JFK but its his choice and I believe he can muster the votes this time,because everyone thinks its time for a third party.Even if he is on the rep. ticket.I would like to know who will be running with him.

            Bachmann and Palin each have more smarts, experience, integrity and know how in thier pinky than Obama has in a lifetime. Do not underestimate them. I personally would like to see Perry run, but that is not gonna happen. The more I think of it a Palin/Bachmann ticket, the better it sounds to me. Ron Paul is quite knowlegable but I do not think he is a powerful enough conservative. The important thing is back to good ole fashion God revering Constitutional basics with way smaller government. I think it will take extreme strong conservatism to bring our country back to the middle again so that both wings have the freedom to truly serve the People.

      Anthony – I just learned some really fascinating stuff on JFK. It seems that there is more to the story than his plans to expose the FED.

      Remember his attempts to find out what’s in the UFO files and what NASA knows that they won’t tell us? It seems that there are things on the moon, relics of past inhabitations, and that the moon isn’t at all what we’ve been told. It is also FULL OF WATER, which means it also has AIR (this has recently been revealed by NASA).

      Anyway, JFK had put together a plan for a manned moon exploration, the US together with the Russians. He learned something that convinced him that what was there would influence US/Russian relations in a positive way, and this was during the cold war. He had Kruschev on board. Right before he was to announce this to the American people, he was assassinated, and the plan was scrapped.

      Not only that, but Kruschev was promptly deposed, as well. It seems that it would have altered the course of history in such a way that didn’t meet with the plans of the PTB.

      There is way more that we don’t know than we hear.

    Mr. Chrystal sounds like a sore loser with his commentary.He failed to name a candidate (GOP) that could do a better job than the President.Made a negative remark about Eg Shultz’s weight and talked later about Christie and let it slide.He ends by saying you have 18 months Mr, President accomplish something.Saying that to the President that saved America from a depression,saved the American auto industry,(Chrysler just paid their loan back 6 years early),he put forth the greatest Wall Street reform in decades.Then there is the Start Treaty to reduce nuclear weapons in the world, he has created a better relationship with almost every nation in the world and the US has much more respect.Veterans and students will find a much better program for continuing education,and the President will continue the fight to save Medicare, Social Security and human rights throughout the world.This is only a partial list of his achievements and I am sure we will see more in the next 18 months so be patient.Oh yes he also got Bin Laden.Thank you

            I agree with you, I do think some of these liberals are paid to come on these sites and try to stir up trouble. All they are doing is teaching us conservatives their dirty tricks. They will say anything up to and including distorting the truth just to make their point. This has been a tactic of theirs all along.
            One major tactic is scare tactics to the elderly about their medicare or their social security money.
            The Liberals form of truth is MOST of the time distorted, so we have to take what they say with a what my grandmother used to say, a grain of salt, for that is about how much truth is in it.

        Want to see drivel? Take a look at Eric Cantor telling the people who survived the Joplin tornado that no reconstruction funds/disaster relief until he gets his way with the budget cuts, eliminates regulation of the Wall Street criminals, and continues the gifts to the oil executives. There is drivel for you. When did this country and the 2nd in command of the House decide to abandon our countrymen who were subjected to a disaster. Reminds me of the response to Katrina too – you should have known a tornado or hurricane was coming, for goodness sake, and built your homes and towns underground on high ground. One heart attack or bout of leukemia can ruin your whole day – you should have prepared for it.

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

          Dear skip,

          When did it become the responsibility of the Federal government (ie taxpayers) to rebuild people’s houses. That’s what insurance is for. (And if you don’t have insurance you are irresponsible.) It’s the state and local government’s responsibility to clear debris and the role of churches and volunteer agencies and volunteers to help with relief, shelter, etc.

          And lest someone say that I have no idea what it’s like to experience a disaster, the Personal Liberty office sits one block removed from the path of an EF4 tornado that hit on April 27. The office is in Alabama, which saw more than 300 die that day. The relief effort and cleanup was going swimmingly until FEMA got in the way and started dictating who could work where and how.

          Best wishes,
          Bob

          • Nadzieja Batki

            Thank you.

          • karolyn

            What about all the people who can’t afford insurance? We are ALL responsible for each other!!! Name me a government that doesn’t help its people in time of disaster and that will only be a corrupt and/or dictatorial government.

          • Jazzabelle

            Karolyn,

            The United States of America, back in its early days when it actually followed its Constitution, did not help people recover from disasters. Yet it was not corrupt or dictatorial.

            Now, the PEOPLE of the USA – yes, the people helped each other. Without government funding or interference.

            Now that the government meddles in various ways, the social fabric is perilously rent – and people don’t help each other nearly as much, believing that “it’s the government’s job.”

          • karolyn

            Jazz – “Back in its early days” the US had a very small population, so it was easier for people to help people. The magnitude of this country’s disasters and population has made it much more difficult. Regarding FEMA, I just heard an interview of the Mayor of a town hit by tornadoes four years ago who said that FEMA was wonderful and that the government doesn’t just come in and start handing out money. He said it was in a partnership with all the other pertinent organizations.

          • Jana

            karolyn,
            Its the old fashioned thing called neighbor helping neighbor, friends helping friends.
            If you lost your home to say a fire, where would you go? Certainly not to the Presidents house, most of us would go to a friends house for a few days till we got our head together and figured out what to do.
            We have become a nation of people that needs someone to take care of them. We are supposed to be men and women, not little kids. When disaster strikes, we figure out what to do and start doing something that is now called a dirty word, but its called WORK.
            You stated most countries help their citizens? Ha, Haitian citizens are still living in the streets. Most Governments keep the money sent to their citizens for cleanup for themselves. The food and goods that are sent over to the citizens are sold on the black market and go into the pockets of the rulers of these countries.

          • Nadzieja Batki

            Notice that Jopa, Eddie, k.,etc., don’t ask to be helped, they demand it as if it was their right to stick their hands in other peoples’ pockets.

          • Jana

            karolyn,
            Of course he would say that, he has his hand out too.
            ***********
            You said” “Back in its early days” the US had a very small population, so it was easier for people to help people. The magnitude of this country’s disasters and population has made it much more difficult**********

            Wrong, work was just as hard back then as it is now. People actually had less back then, but gave more of themselves to each other, and was a lot more neighborly. They didn’t expect someone else to do it for them. This is your mentality. You have lived off of the government for so long you think everyone should.

          • Kate8

            karolyn – Actually, the exact opposite of what you said is true.

            It’s when the government convinces us that it has the responsibility to help that dictators and tyranny arise. It is always the same lie they use to get access to the people’s wealth and create dependency.

            I can’t believe you can’t see this. In fact, it’s the reason our founders made government so limited. Given the freedom to do so, people will help one another in a crisis. Today, government discourages helping one another, by making us subject to lawsuits and onerous regulations, and even outright prohibiting it.

          • libertytrain

            Karolyn re: …”an interview of the Mayor of a town hit by tornadoes four years ago who said that FEMA was wonderful and that the government doesn’t just come in and start handing out money. He said it was in a partnership with all the other pertinent organizations.”

            It will/would be interesting to talk to the actual residents and business owners in the weeks to come in Alabama,etc.,and find out if those “pertinent organizations” are helping them via FEMA -

          • Kate8

            Jana – Yes, people used to jump right in and help in any emergency. Some still do, but most people stand by helpless and immoble. People are afraid of reprisal, if they even know what to do. Many just feel helpless and wait for BigBro to arrive. Others just aren’t interested in anything that isn’t about themselves.

            When I was a teen, there was a car crash on our street. My mom grabbed good sheets from the closet and ripped them into bandages, and was on the scene stopping the bleeding. My mom was not a medic, but she did have common sense and a willingness to help others in time of need.

            That never would have happened today. In fact, it could be dangerous in our restricted climate. But this is an aspect of human nature that blooms when people are free.

          • JeffH

            No dammit, it’s not the individuals resonsibility to be…ehh…responsible. It’s the guvment’s resonsibility to take care of anyone and anything that is irresponsible. Isn’t it? Or do I have it all mixed up.

          • DaveH

            Karolyn says “We are ALL responsible for each other!”.
            As usual spoken by one who thinks responsibility is something you do with other peoples’ money. If you were really responsible, Karolyn, you would do some reading and learn why Free Markets work and Socialism doesn’t. People like you lead countries into the kind of economic mess that is Zimbabwe, or Cuba, or North Korea. In case you haven’t figured it out, Karolyn, those people suffer much more than the ones you worry about in this country.
            If they can afford a house, Karolyn, they can afford insurance. Or they can self-insure. There are no guarantees in life. Except perhaps the guarantee of impoverishment that Socialist thinkers like yourself bring to victim countries.
            What do people do when other people have to foot the bill for their careless behavior? They behave carelessly. Meanwhile the people who are forced to foot the bill, by people like Karolyn, become less responsible because it no longer is worth the effort to behave responsibly since they just become the target for every wealth-distributing Liberal in the country. So the society and its economy degrade.

            karolyn – You’ve made it clear that you believe that we are our brothers’ keepers. But if we take responsibility for someone else, that means we get to make decisions for him, whether he likes it or not.

            When we give ourselves over go government for our provision, we sacrifice our freedom to make our own choices. Government doesn’t care if we don’t like some of its decisions for us. We’ve given up that right at that point.

            I don’t know about you, but I don’t want other people making decisions about my life. I don’t want to be kept.

      “saved America from a depression”? We have a worse economy now than when Obama started. And unless you have a crystal ball, that statement is totally fallacious, because we have no idea where our economy would have been without Obama.
      “saved the American auto industry”? More like saved the Unionists jobs who surely would’ve suffered some dramatic cuts which they richly deserved.
      “Chrysler just paid their loan back 6 years early”. Nice equivocation, Jopa. Chrysler paid back their loan by borrowing the money from private investors, so it’s still on the hook, but to different lenders. Meanwhile the US Government (we taxpayers) still own 8.6% of Chrysler’s equity:

      The MSM will be trying hard to marginalize the voices of Ron Paul and Gary Johnson, but Fox Network, that entity that Liberals love to hate, is giving them some pretty good airtime.
      Both Liberals and Republicans love labeling Ron Paul as “extremist”, when in fact, his message is simply one of adherence to the Constitution, the main law of the land. So the “non-extremists” (those who label Paul as “extreme”) are okay with our Politicians pledging an oath to defend and obey the Constitution and then just ignoring it? That makes them somehow noble? It’s unbelievable to me that we have gone this far down the road to complete lack of morality in our Government.

    I’ve yet to see any republician that can come close to President Obamas elegance and speaking ability! He is that once in a life time President that I predict will be re-elected easily!Even I who voted for him,Iam 100% satisfied with all he has done,however so far I dont see a republician that comes close to bringing him down.I feel that he will do much more to put a smile on the face of the majority of Americians in the coming months of his first term in office!

    • http://NA SPARKY SAYS

      The only ones that are smiling are the air heads that can’t see the forest for the trees.They are the free loaders.

    • Bob

      Wow, you actually want this socialist to stay in office. He is all about stealing from the rich and redirecting that stolen money to the poor. THAT OS A CRIME!!!!!!

      We got into this mess by the government spending far more than ot takes in. Obamination is doubling down on that stupid bet. If you are satisfied with this man occupying the White House, you are a total idiot or you want to see the USA destroyed.

      • JuanC

        Right on Bob. The people who are claiming that Obama has done some good things are blind. Like the old saying goes, “The blind leading the blind”. Are they all really that dense in their rationing and thinking? Can’t they see the damage he has already done and is still making? God have mercy on America.

      • Kinetic1

        Bob,
        We got into this mess when a Republican President and his Republican congress decided that a) a surplus is a bad thing and all that money, real or perceived had to be “given back” to the people. b) Decided that heading warnings was not good for their agenda, resulting in our being totally unprepared(?) for an attack on 9/11. c) Decided that avenging the victims of 9/11 was not enough. Shoot, now that we have cut taxes let’s start another war! And while we’re at it, let’s cut taxes some more! And d) since they failed to regulate our financial industry, let’s run to Congress and tell them that they have to give the banks trillions of dollars. This would have been a good time to have some money put aside. Now what did we do with all that surplus that we then said wasn’t really a surplus? Oh yea, we gave what we didn’t really have back to the people, so let’s go in debt to bail out the banks that are crushing the people! What! We’re already in debt from running two unfunded wars? Well if there’s one thing Reagan taught us it’s that the deficit is nothing to be concerned about. At least not until it is dumped in a Democrat’s lap so that we can blame him for everything.

        • Bob

          Kinetic,

          You have a few things wrong. Reagan cut a deal with Congress to cut taxes taxes AND cut spending. They did not cut spending. It grew faster than inflation, hence deficits.

          What in the world is an unfunded war? We actually only have one war going on, WW4 – the war against radical Islam. WW3 was the cold war. Vietnam, Korea, the many conflicts in Africa and around the world were all the same war, just like WW2 had several campaigns, not separate wars.

          We didn’t start this war, the islamofascists did.

          We need to blame everyone politician who spends too much of our money. Bush was a liberal, not a Conservative. Obamination is far worse, he spends more. He is a socialist.

          Another problem is that the big government politicians (liberals) think that they should determine how much money we are allowed to keep. The discussion needs to be how much money are we the people going to give to these irresponsible people in DC.

        • fixr

          That Republican President got to deal with the mess caused by Clinton! It was his policies that put people in homes that couldn’t afford them. It was his policies that left terrorist attacks unanswered. You can’t blame Bush forever.

        • DaveH

          All the way back to Reagan now, eh Kinetic?
          Why don’t we go all the way back and put the blame where it really belongs, in the laps of the Hamiltonians, and Lincoln who was the first to implement those policies to create a vast meddling central and mercantilistic Government?
          The bailouts under Bush (who spent like a drunken sailor) were approved by the majority Democrat Congress. Whenever you see wild spending by Congress, you can be sure the Democrats are not far away.
          And how dare anybody give those rich people some of their own money back? I mean those pikers in the top 1% of income earners only pay 38% of the Federal Income Taxes. How chincey is that?
          What gets me about Liberals is that they’re the Intelligent Class (in their minds, not mine), yet they can’t seem to get along without other peoples’ money. You would think those self-described Intelligent creatures could figure out how to make their own money, instead of riding on the backs of other people.

      • Kate8

        Bob – Actually, he’s stealing from the rich and redirecting it to the uber-rich.

        I don’t really see much going to the poor, except for fraudulent enterprises like SEIU and the now renamed ACORN, whoever they are now.

        • Bob

          Welfare needs to be a gift, not forced extraction of our money from us. If we give our money voluntarily, it is charity. If the government takes it from us via taxes and given to others via welfare, that is the same as stealing and then giving to another person it doesn’t belong to. THAT IS A CRIME.

          • Kate8

            Bob – I understand that. Yes, a lot of money goes into welfare. But that isn’t new.

            O is directing the vastest amount of funds to his elite crony banksters. Not that that is new. It’s just more blatant now.

    • TIME

      Nickiee baby,

    • Robin from Arcadia, IN

      Nick… Your sarcasm is great! Barry tried (in vain) to pull off a good Irish accent, and his toast to the Queen of England was classic! I hope she is a forgiving sort…

      • Kate8

        Robin – It’s just one of may times he’s breached protocol with the Queen.

        The man is an idiot. That’s what happens when you make leaders out of the ill-bred. He’s clueless.

        You’d think someone would educate him about protocol, being that he’s been placed in high circles. But then, he thrives on embarrassing America. Not only that, but those around him are as crass as he is.

        • Wayne937

          I was watching this. Queen Elizabeth did not look very happy with Obama. Atta boy, Obama, make a fool out of yourself, and your country. Now watch the Libs come out to defend their Obamanuts.

        • Wayne937

          Kate8, Obama is too much of a narcissist to learn anything. He thinks he knows it all, and he is in love with himself too much. He will have all the unions, NEA folks, the welfare people, and all the undesirables voting for him though.

          • Carlucci

            Speaking of that, did anyone notice how Moochelle was glowering at him while he was flubbing the toast? I guess it is beginning to dawn on her that her hubby is gay, gay, gay, gay, gay…..

      Nick is obviously another “plant” from the same Romper Room (or is that rubber room?) that jovi and others of his ilk came from.

      • Kate8

        Carlucci – There is just no way so many liberal types would be drawn to a site such as this unless they are paid to do it, and using several names makes them look like there are more than there are.

        I don’t know why we keep letting them control the direction of the converstations every day.

        • Carlucci

          Kate8 – Maybe if we all just decide to ignore them and not respond to their idiotic posts, they will get bored and go away.

          I was asking the other day about the Berkey Water Filter. How does the water taste once it is purified? I’m hooked on Ozarka spring water, but would love it if the Berkey filtered water tasted just as good or better. Sure would save me some bucks in the long run. What is your opinion on the taste of the Berkey filtered water?

          • Kate8

            Carlucci – Since I live in the mountains, our tap water is a bit better than in the city, but still not good. Even bottled water is gross to me. I was so thirsty for good, fresh, clean water that I was nearly desperate.

            I got my Berkey and, to me, it tastes like heaven. Clean, refreshing, thirst-quenching. YES!

            I love it. I also love that it is a gravity filter, in case the grid goes down.

            I have recommended it to friends, who also love it. One friend lives in the city, and added a fluoride filter, since fluoride particles are difficult to get out with any filter.

          • Carlucci

            Kate – jibbs just said the same thing about the Berkey on another thread. Thanks so much for the input. I’m going to buy one this week. :)

            It’s normal for people to want to talk among the like-minded. At least, the open-minded. You might find the occasional person who just likes to stir the pot, but the way these libs get beat up here every day…

            Soros funds groups that exist to disrupt conservative blog sites. We always figured that was the case, but when we learned that the were sharing the same IP address…There are a few of them posting under several names.

            karolyn – Did you also read where the Chinese workers were getting mercury poisoning from making the bulbs? Of course, they were told not to worry, that it would leave their bodies. Right.

            In China, as soon as one worker falls, another is ready to step in without missing a beat. Hungry people do anything for money.

    Herman Cain is my choice and has been for over a year now. That really puts the fear of God into the Demonrats & the tingle they feel running down their legs is their own urine. At least they’ll not be able to use the race card on this candidate. I have finally found a person worthy of my vote. Now if I only could be really, really sure that my vote even counted especially since Herman Cain isn’t part of any of the establishment elite. I guess that is why I stand behind him because I’m FED up with the political establishment they have LIED, CHEATED & STOLE which goes against my morals & values. If nominated to run on the GOP platform I will NO longer have to choose the lesser of two evils.

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

      Dear Tammy,

      Herman Cain not part of the elite? He’s a former deputy chairman and chairman of the Kansas City Federal Reserve. You can’t be more of an insider than to be a part of that insidious organization. He doesn’t believe the Fed should be audited and supported TARP and bailouts.

      If you are looking for a small government conservative, Cain is not it. If you are content with the big government status quo, vote Cain.

      Best wishes,

            Carlucci,
            It takes me about 10 minutes of listening to these people to know who they really are. Am I expecting too much from people?

            DaveH – No, not at all. It sounds like your powers of discernment are very sharp. I believe that careful listening is a learned art – it does not come naturally to most people. I have found that there are lots of people out there who are too busy listening to their own internal monologues most of the time. I had to learn how to clear my mind and listen carefully to people when I went into sales years ago.

            You are very lucky to have an excellent bull— detector. I just wish there were more people in America like you – if there were, we wouldn’t be in the mess we’re in.

            I didn’t have to look at his past to know that he was the typical Big-Government-loving controlling Republican.

  • http://ByGeorge By George

    Neil Cavuto in his closing comments on his 4:00 pm program Wednesday on the FOX Business Channel, said ”the game is over” because our side refuses to fight or defend itself against the stupid assertions of the Democrats that Republicans are trying to kill Medicare and that Medicare is actually okay and that we shouldn’t worry about it. Well, maybe he’s right!

    The Democrats seem to think that one special election in one small New York Congressional District, which ushered in a Democrat Representative, was a stunning citizens repudiation of Paul Ryan’s budget and said it would destroy Medicare. The Democrats, to their peril, believe that this one single election stands as the final word on Medicare and that Republicans should bend the knee of fealty to the wisdom of Socialism. They totally ignore the November 2010 tsunami that rolled over them. Too, the NY Special Election included an alleged TEA Party candidate that was a socialist ringer whose only purpose was to kill the Republican candidates chances. These people should be identified early in the campaign and quickly denounced as the socialist 5th columnists that they really are.

    The Democrats take on the NY Elections is nonsense of course, but for some inexplainable reason Republicans now actually recoil in fear at the possibility the Democrats might be right. They are are not right, but our side seems ready to concede the argument. As I write this, the Senate voted against the Ryan Bill. Okay, fair enough because we don’t have the senate yet. However, a Republican did have a budget. Where is the Democrats budget? They don’t have one at all. For some reason we continue to allow the Democrats to set the agenda, identify the parameters in which political arguments will be set and define the terms of debate. No, no, no! We cannot continue in this vein of fear, appeasement and conciliation. We need to attack!

    As my friend Jerry De. reminded me: “There is no going back now. They (the Socialists) are too close to final victory. They can smell their sweet smell of America in ashes. All the pitiful nonsense of “taking back the country” is nothing more than the wishful thinking of romantic fools. Sixty years of one methodical goal, battles carried out on a dozen different social, political and economic fronts. Two steps forward, one step back, Never relenting. probing, testing for reactions. Kent State, Ruby Ridge, Waco. They finally have inserted the right man, at the right time. A President with chromatic immunity from criticism. It’s perfect. So, bye, bye Miss American Pie.”

    Our politicians, the ones we sent there hopefully to correct the errors and bring America back into its just roll as the leading country of the free world, appear to be stymied in their pursuit of returning America to its constitutional roots that the Democrats have so happily trashed. So, I must paraphrase Patrick Henry: “There is no longer any room for hope. If we wish to be free, if we mean to preserve inviolate those inestimable privileges for which we have been so long contending, if we mean not basely to abandon the struggle in which we have been so long engaged,….then we must fight!” The Democrats would have us believe that they are strong and we are weak, “unable to cope with so formidable an adversary….The battle is not to the strong alone: it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave (the TEA Party). It is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged (in Obamacare and Unions) The war is inevitable…is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it almighty God….give me liberty or give me death!”

    I have to agree with nadzieja batki, that Jopa must have got paid for that little speech, if you are truly honest even with yourself, one knows that He ( the president hasn’t kept one of his promises that he made when he was running for president, and the thing is he is still running away from the truth and his commitment he made to the people who put him in office, I know I don’t want a liar in there for another 4 years, by the way I didn’t vote for him either, so it was written so let it be done.

      All politicians make promises they never keep, but it is not for lack of trying. I believe that many of them really believe they can keep those promises; however, once hitting the brick wall of DC, they fall short.

    the sad thing is, what this president will accomplish in the next 18 months is to continue his destruction of America so it won’t matter who we elect in 2012… he is doing as much irreparable harm as he possibly can, and no one is stopping him. Therein lies my great frustration. The blind fools that continue to follow him now, will still follow him to the polls. We desperately need someone patriotic, conservative, and intelligent in the White House – someone with strength and courage and backbone – someone who can stand up against pelosi, reid, and espeically soros.

    • Richard2687

      Agreed. Another factor to consider is the staggering percentage (I believe it’s > 40%+)of the populace receiving some sort of government assistance (spelled “redistribution of OUR wealth”). Those folks will vote (or some union or ACORN-type proxies will) in their narrow self-interest to perpetuate this rapidly sinking welfare/police state.

      Then, of course, BHO and his Marxist buddies are well along the road to amassing their $1B campaign fund which will most certainly feature no end of fabulous tales of how our great leader pulled us back from the Bushian abyss. The inspiration for the Obamites could well be no other than Josef Goebbels, who stated:

      “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

    Yes the polls are probably not accurate this far out from the 2012 elections. However polls aren’t going to be needed to gauge anything. I think it’s obvious to a majority of voters that Obama’s biggest accomplishment in his first term is, that he is driven this country even deeper into the ditch than even GWB managed to by not making positive changes in our governmental behavior. This one term president will be out of office after January 2013. Will his replacement be any better. Presidential election after presidental election, and congressional election after congressional election has only produced higher, and higher levels of debt for this country. Where does this spending madness end? I blame both parties for not working together for a cure. Both the Donkeys, and the Elephants share the blame equaly for our national mess.

  • Mari

    Interesting article – interesting remarks. I am not a fan of Obama and I, too think his agenda has been to destroy America, but I feel there is a surge of patriotism going on that I pray continues. I hope the Tea Party rallies continue, the Liberty bus touring the country, rallies like what Glenn Beck pulled together, and all the other organizations that keep reminding us of who we are as American’s continue. Liberalism has been running amok in this country and I pray this new momentum will stop it in it’s tracks. We, as a country, need to get back to the basics – The Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. We need to remember what it is to be American. We need to stop comparing ourself to Europe – we don’t want to be like Europe – this is America – our forefathers put this country together not wanting to be like what they left – Europe. We don’t need a President apologizing for being American or bowing to anyone – we are Americans. Our nation was the envy of all – now we are just trying to be equal. No! We are America! Our land is covered with the blood of those who built this country – who fought for this country – every inch and we need to continue to protect this country from ALL enemies FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC. I heard a comment the other day that cracked me up – I was accused of being a racist, because I don’t like Obama. And the person went on to say, “No one critized Bush, because he was white.” I lost it considering all the Bush bashing that went on and after being in office, our President still blames Bush. Oh except for after the death of Bin Laden. To hear Obama tell it – you would think he pulled the trigger himself. Did he credit the policies and procedures that he bashed during his campaign? No he just used them and took credit for his job well done. And our military, which Obama continues to discredit and not justly treat – still did their jobs – because they are American Soldiers! They are there voluntarily, because they want to serve their country. What do we do in return – we don’t even protect them at their home bases on American soil, we don’t give them the equitment they need, or reliable information they need, and their hands are tied. Obama treats the military just like he treats the business’ in this country. So many regulations and outlandish taxes that hinder business the ability to grow and prosper. If you have a plant and you regulate it’s water and fertilizer – it won’t bloom. Business is the same way – they are so over regulated and taxed, they can’t hire – more people working mean more people paying taxes – less unemployment, which those working pay for, more people being productive and able to buy goods and services, etc. etc. A few years ago that concept was called the trickle down theory and it was critized – but it worked. The liberals didn’t like it because it went against their idea of getting people more and more dependant on government than on themselves. We need to get back to a nation OF THE PEOPLE – BY THE PEOPLE – AND FOR THE PEOPLE. Not the way we have it now – God only knows if Obama is reall of the people, but he clearly isn’t for the people, because policies have been shoved down or throat that the people were against – Obamacare. Wake up – we need to continue the surge of American pride and American fortitude. It won’t be easy, but we are Americans – we can win!

    UPDATE! OBAMA’S GRANDMOTHER GAVE HIM HIS SSN!

    An investigation has revealed the identity of the man whose Social
    Security number (SSN) has been illegally used by Obama:

    Jean Paul Ludwig, who was born in France in 1890, emigrated to the
    United States in 1924, and was assigned SSN 042-68-4425. Ludwig
    lived most of his adult life in Connecticut. His SSN begins with the
    digits 042, which are among several reserved for Connecticut
    residents. Obama never lived or worked in that state, so there is no
    reason for his SSN to start with the digits 042.

    NOW HERE COMES THE BEST PART!

    Ludwig spent the final months of his life in Hawaii, where he died.
    Conveniently, Obama’s grandmother, Madelyn Payne Dunham, worked
    part-time in the Probate Office in the Honolulu, Hawaii Courthouse, and therefore had access to the SSNs of deceased individuals. The Social Security administration was never informed of Ludwig’s death, and because he never received Social Security benefits, there were no
    benefits to stop and no questions were raised.

    The suspicion, of course, is that Dunham, knowing her grandson was
    not a U.S. citizen — either because he was born in Kenya or became a
    citizen of Indonesia upon his adoption by Lolo Soetoro — merely
    scoured the probate records until she found someone who died who
    was not receiving Social Security benefits, and “selected” that SSN for Obama.

    Just wait until Trump gets past the birth certificate and moves on to the issue of Barry O’s use of a stolen SSN. You will see leftist heads exploding, because they will have no way of defending Obama.
    Although many Americans are not smart enough to understand the meaning of the term “NATURAL BORN CITIZEN,” there are few who do not
    understand that if you are using someone else’s SSN, it is a clear
    indication of FRAUD!

        They love throwing these red herrings out against Obama without having exact proof.

Are they sincere or just being extremely desperate.

      • TIME

        K,

        I was Born in Ct, my SS # starts with the standard # format for the state as will anyone who acquired thier SS card in that state.

        How strange that my BC also has the State Seal stamped on it, how odd is it that friends in the 50Th state all have the State’s Seal stamped on thier BC’s too?
        Yet Barry’s is missing that seal, I guess that was an over sight right?
        Yea, that and a box of Crispy Creams will get you nothing but happy fat cells with zero value content.

        Thus I will say with a firm conviction that there are a number of Doucment experts who are taking the alledged BC to the FBI with “solid Scientific proof” that Barry Birth Certificate is a 100% total fake.

        So on that note: you may wish to show your {rock solid Scientific PROOF} that you have alluded to as I am sure the folks over at the FBI would love to see it.

    Recon1969 says: THIS IS THE REAL BARRY SOETORO!

    May 13, 2011 at 12:38 pm

    This is an article written by an ex IRS

    investigator..very interesting.

    Trump is correct, Barry Soetoro, AKA Obama is hiding something in his past that is very bad, and it may not be his citizenship. (Trump would not say this if he did not know something and he has the money to get the dirt.) As an IRS tax examiner, one of many former federal jobs, I have seen what it appears Barry Soetoro has done, mostly by illegal aliens, attempting to acquire a new identity in the U.S and/or criminals looking to acquire a new ID.

    Barry, AKA Obama, was lawfully adopted by a foreign national, Lolo Soetoro, and Barry’s name was legally changed to “Barry Soetoro”. (Barry’s own admission) Barry Soetoro was also made an official legal Indonesian citizen. (again Barry’s own admission) The adoption would be noted in Barry’s vital statistics record in Hawaii on his original birth certificate.

    OR Lolo Soetoro may have always been Barry’s legal birth father. The public does not know for sure at this point who Barry’s father really was and Barry himself may not know. Barry was raised as a Muslim in Indonesia and attended a Catholic funded school that permitted all faiths to attend. Barry’s mother dropped him as a dependent for some reason, maybe even when Barry was adopted by Lolo Soetoro. His mother’s passport records dropped Barry as a dependent indicating Barry was no longer a legal dependent of his mothers. (The passport records of his mother have been produced showing Barry was no longer a dependent when Barry was permanently residing in Indonesia .)

    Barry went to Hawaii to live with his alleged grand parents after Lolo Soetoro and Barry’s mother divorced. A “certificate of live birth” can have names changed on it including a child’s birth name, and birth parent’s names. Even a modified date of birth can be on a “certificate of live birth”. This occurs frequently for adopted children where the birth parent does not want the child to know who they are.

    The public has no idea who Barry’s real birth father is or who Barry’s real birth mother is. (Barry could have been adopted by his mother) The original birth certificate is the only legal vital statistics record of a person’s birth parents, birth location, birth date, etc. I can get a “certificate of live birth” for a dead person; I cannot get a birth certificate of a dead person without “Deceased” on it. (I’ve tried)

    There is no evidence Barry Soetoro ever lawfully changed his name to “Barrack Hussein Obama”. There is no proof Barry Soetoro was born with the name “Barrack Hussein Obama”. I’m willing to bet the name”Barrack Hussein Obama” is not present on the real birth certificate as Barry’s birth name or as Barry’s birth father. I have pictures of me with my mother and Jimmy Buffet. that doesn’t make him my father even if I start using the name Jimmy Buffet.

    The public knows Barry Soetoro finished high school in Hawaii as Barry Soetoro and attended Occidental as Barry Soetoro where he did drugs and flunked out of school. After dropping out of Occidental, Barry showed up in New York , homeless and on drugs. (Barry’s own admission) Barry then hooked up with a Pakistani to live with and traveled back to Indonesia on his new boyfriend’s dime to renew his Indonesian passport and traveled to Pakistan with him.

    Ask any law enforcement officer in a large city or detective and they will tell you homeless young men on drugs in large cities usually end up as male prostitutes. Barry ended up as a world traveler with a degree. (Not likely) Barry Soetoro returned to New York from Pakistan and began using the fictitious name “Obama” for some reason. (again Barry Soetoro’s own admission) One could only suspect that a person addicted to drugs returning from Pakistan to New York , the main route for Afghan heroin into the U.S., maybe Barry had a reason to start using a new name.

    There are literally over 1 million open warrants on file in New York . maybe Barry is one of them?..

    After spending some time in New York allegedly working under the name “Obama”, It appears Barry used the fictitious name “Barrack Hussein Obama” for the first time to file his federal taxes in Connecticut at a Post Office Box for the purpose of evading paying taxes in New York and /or to establish a new identity. (This is a felony with no statute of limitation.)

    When the IRS received Barry Soetoro’s federal tax filing, the IRS could not attach the name Barrack Hussein Obama to the SSI number provided or the address provided. So the IRS assigned the fictitious name “Barrack Hussein Obama” a tax ID number for a person from Connecticut (Where Barry unlawfully filed a federal tax form using a false name). Barry Soetoro began using the tax ID number as his SSI number when using the fictitious name Barrack Obama. This is why Barry Soetoro has a Connecticut SSI number.

    When I worked for the IRS, I saw this occur more than once and yes, it is a felony to knowingly file a fraudulent federal tax forms. Most of the politicians that cheat on their taxes claim it was an accident. That is how they get away with their tax cheat crimes. Using a fake name is no accident.

    It appears Barry fled New York to Chicago using his new identity to get a job . He likely ordered a fake diploma to bolster his new identity as “Obama”. Fake Diploma’s were very big in the 80′s and diploma mills were even being used by federal workers to get promotions. There is evidence his alleged attendance at Columbia was faked (Barry never attended Columbia ) and Barry lied his way into Harvard (he had no transcripts to get in). Including telling the Saudi royal family he was fighting in Afghanistan with the Muslim Jihad against the Russians, so they would help him get into a law school.

    The Saudi’s apparently loved Barry’s story of Jihad in Pakistan/Afghanistan and paid for Barry to attend Harvard under the name “Obama”. The Saudi family has admitted to paying for Obama to attend Harvard and gave Harvard a gift of $20 million dollars. Harvard in turn made their special attendee President of the law review a person that never wrote a single law review.. I guess that is what $20 million buys at Harvard.

    It is unlikely Barry was a Jihadist and was most likely a drug mule if anything, maybe even a CIA street hire to haul Afghan heroin back to New York, so the Afghans could buy U.S. made stinger missiles with U.S.dollars to shoot down Russian helicopters? I hired people over seas to do work below my pay grade all the time, even foreign nationals. I think this is the story Barry told the Saudi’s, but he was most likely really just a drug mule/dealer and probably still wanted on an outstanding warrant in New York.

    Barry’s selective service registration is not normal either. Click on the link for info on Barry’s Selective Service number.

    http://www.debbieschlussel.com/4428/exclusive-did-next-commander-in-chief-falsify-selective-

    service-registration-never-actually-register-obamas-draft-registration-raises-serious-questions/

    After I looked at Barry’s selective service filing I noticed it was most likely fraudulent too based on the name he used. Barry did not start using the name “Obama” until he returned from Pakistan (long after he flunked out of school in California ) His selective service record (maintained in Chicago coincidentally) shows he registered at a Hawaiian post office as “Obama” in Sept 1980.

    Problem, Barry was getting high in California at Occidental in Sept 1980 (Barry’s own admission) and was not using the fictitious name “Obama” at that time. Barry began using the fictitious name “Obama” only after he returned from Pakistan. The selective service filing is fraudulent. NEW NOTE – On the the Selective Service Registration, Barry did not have the Connecticut Tax ID number he used on the Registration until after he began using the name “Obama” in New York . More evidence his Selective Service filing is fraudulent.

    Barry returned to Chicago and attended a semi-christian radical black church with his first female love Michelle. Barry admits keeping in touch with Phil Boener, who traveled to New York from Occidental to be with Barry and was most likely Barry’s first love. Barry still could not get a real job, because he was still a fraud, even with his Harvard degree in hand he could lie and take the Bar exam, but he could not work as a lawyer for a major law firm without a back ground investigation and he would never pass one.

    So, Michelle got Barry a job at her law firm. Barry never filed a case alone and never filed a motion. He wrote lots of memos according to the law firm where Barry worked. (I think they knew Barry was a fraud and didn’t want to be sued by previous clients) Barry rescinded his law licenses, so as not to be disbarred for fraud. The Bar knows Barry lied on his application. Michelle also had to turn over her law license for her involvement in corruption with the Chicago mayors office.

    With time on his hands Barry, a well spoken black man, was able to get elected to a state office, oddly because he looked for fraud in his opponents voter registrations and got his opponent disqualified from running. Barry a well versed liar was a natural in state politics. He used his political influence to get himself a position as a lecturer at Chicago’s law school. Barry embellished this position as a “professor of law” which everyone knows is completely false. Barry was not a professor or even a specialist at anything but lying.

    On a whim Barry ran for United States Senate for the State of Illinois . Politicians do this all the time to make a name for themselves even if they can’t win. At the time the Republican Ryan was a shoe in for the Senate seat, so no real Democrat contenders entered the race, but Barry did.

    On a fluke after the primary Ryan’s wife Jeri Ryan (Seven of nine from Star Trek) went public that her husband was making her have sex with other people while he watched. Ryan dropped out and Alan Keys moved from Maryland to run against Barry Soetoro. The election got all kinds of press because there were no blacks in the U.S. Senate and one of these black men was going to be a Senator. Alan Keys did his best to warn everyone Barry was not who he claimed to be, but the public saw him as a carpet bagger.

    Barry kept the lie going and presented himself as a clean black man that talked like a white man. Illinois elected Barry to the U.S. Senate. The Democrats had already began scrubbing Barry’s back ground when Ryan dropped out. Phil, Barry’s boy friend from Occidental, was found working in California as a communications specialist (receptionist) for a dental hygienist school and given a diploma from Columbia and cover story.

    The rest of Barry’s drug friends were all given jobs or money by the Democrat machine to keep quiet Because Barry was such a news maker as the only Black in the Senate, and he could speak like a white man he was made key speaker for the Democrat convention.

    Barry then decided to run for President to keep the lie going. No one thought to question Barry’s back ground in the Democratic party. They helped cover up the ugly back ground. The only person jumping up and down warning Barry was not who he claimed to be was Alan Keys and he was discarded as just an angry loser.

    Now we have a complete fraud sitting in the Office of the President. Clearly the most corrupt, inexperienced, and ignorant President in the history of the United States who’s only quality is that he can lie with a straight face.

    Barry Soetoro is more of a fraud than Bernie Madoff and we can only hope his house of cards will one day fall down. This is what the main stream media is feeding to the American people as a fine up standing leader who deserves a second term as our President. This needs to be passed around all over the Internet.

      Dennis – This is a great report, but what is left out is just who was funding and promoting this imposter. He didn’t do all this on his own. He’s not that clever.

      Barry has the backing of the NWO crowd. It’s been reported that he received not just Saudi money, but Soviet, as well. He’s been coached and groomed for a reason, and it’s to strike the fatal blow to America.

      Only if the ruling global elite banksters issued the order that O is their man would there be a hands-off policy across the political board. He is protected and covered for by Congress, the Judiciary, the media and even the states.

      This hideous crime against the people of America has roots embedded in all fronts. Our voices cry out unheard, we are blocked at every turn. Lists are being compiled of those who oppose him and those who will not resist.

      I wonder if ever, in recorded history, such a crime has been perpetrated on such a huge scale… on an entire nation, and even the whole world.

    First, i would like to to say i like Ron Paul and i believe he has some good ideas. Everyone, our constitution has been changed drastically. We as citizens need to know everything we can about todays’ canidates. Are they racist? If so, they don’t have my vote? Are they members of the CFR,TC,PNAC or the BB. Again they don’t have my vote. While there are some citizens who realize what has occurred due to Patroit Act I&II i am afraid they are few in number.As for a National ID. for those of you that think it will never happen you need to read up. It has already hapened. It has passed both the Senate and the House of Respentatives.Obama has signed it into law. I often ask my self the Senate? Who are they making laws for these day. The House of Respentatives.Who do they repersent? The Justice dept. Justice for whom? Obama promised changes! Well! America, we got changes. REX. March 1-2003FEMA. Helps in disasters. Not a very good record so far. As the power to seize the control of government and suspend the constitution. Not good! Remember the civilian force of which Obama spoke? H.R.3590-496 Page 496 Ready Reserve Corps.Passed! Notice we wen’t even told in 2003 about the new law added to FEMA. Homeland Security would not have the power it has if not for 9/11. The CFRs’ own statement. Of course almost all of Obamas’ cabinet are CFR members.iincluding Obama. Unlike the Bilderberg Group who holds secret meeting, the CFR will even allow visits to their web site. I now visit because i believe it is important to know what your enemy is up to as much as possible. When you realize who they are,what their goals are and how many they are and in what positions they can be found. A good example is the news media. Fox just recently became a member. Since the news media is controlled by the CIA and does the propaganda for the Whitehouse is it any wonder we hear only what they want us to hear.many citizens in America. How many Patroits? i am sure most Americans are tired of hearing about 9/11.I still believe we deserve to know the truth. Did the Whitehouse mention the meetings with the ISI before and after 9/11. Some very important people were at those meetings.I know many of you will hate me for saying this but it has been proven beyound the shadow of a doubt Osama Ben Laben was not the mastermind. He was in a American military hospital recovering from a kidney dialysis treatment. The CIA operative who visted said he was weak and frail. The CIA came in out out regularly. Anytime they wante they could have arrested him. Why not? he was important to keep the war on terrorist going in the American peoples’ eyes. This was reported by the French newspaper Le Figaro.pulbished in October2001. In the words of former CIA agent Milt Bearden in a interview with Dan Ratheron Sept. 12,2001, if they didn’t have an Osama Bin Laden they would invent one. Doesn’t anyone even ask that since the former PNAC stated what wwe need is a new Pearl Harbor. Before 9/11.There has been a pact signed between The US, Mexico and Canada. The joining of these three countries in still a strong possibility. If you have Youtube ,use it before the government bans it altogether. Some videos have been already been removed due to content. I can’t blame youtube because under the new law if you speak aginst government policies you can be labeled a traitor and put in jail indefinately without a trail. This is the new change America was promised? removed.www.whatreallyhappened.com and http://www.globalreaserach.ca are two vey informative sites.The think tank in Washington has stated since the citizens can’t think for themselves it is our duty to think for them. Not me!! remeber what Bush said, if you aren’t with us you must be with the traitors. i don’t like my patroitism questioned . I served three tours in the Vietnam War as a US Marine.A war bases on a lie. much like Iraq and Kuwait.Semper Fi is all you Marines out there. Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both! Benjamin Franklin.

      I agree and he couldn’t even spell Keyes name right and he was one of his main points. Obama lived in Illinois when he ran and they had to ship Keyes in from Maryland. Maybe being such an outsider caused Alan’s defeat. You think? Why in the world did they have to put another black man up against him when Obama was an unknown. I think the Republicans set up Keyes for a loss.

  • voted against carter

    Reagan was an actor for 20 years BEFORE he became a politician.

    This is one reason he was able to LOOK so in control (which he ALSO was)

    He understood the theatrics of politics better than ANYone else at the time.

    Keep the message simple and easy to understand.

    EVIL EMPIRE. TEAR DOWN THIS WALL. THERE HE GOES,.. AGAIN,..

    Reagan WAS a MASTER politician, there is NO denying that.

    To day we MIGHT be witnessing the birth of the NEXT MASTER politician

    in the Reagan school but that remains to be seen in that she might not run,

    and America will be poorer for it if she does not.

    All I can say is Carter / Reagan 1979.

    And we ALL know just how THAT worked out thank God.

    The Leftwing nut LIBRATARDS know in their bones that Sarah Palin,…

    IS Ronald Reagan ALL OVER AGAIN. IT TERRIFIES them to no end.

    ESPECIALLY the ones who are OLD enough to remember Reagan.

    So they are trying with EVERY thing they have to,…

    destroy her in a pre-emptive strike.

    If you have heard ANY of her recent speech’s, you understand.

    Sarah Palin REALLY IS the real deal.

    Not some pre-packaged made up configuration like their hero Barry.

    The Left senses this and has reacted like expected.

    IF she runs against barry in 2012,…

    She WILL CRUSH him with indisputable numbers.

    Compared to barry she is Exactly what America will NEED to repair

    ALL of the damage wrought by the Dumb-O-cRATs and barry and his UNION masters.

    This is ONE MORE REASON America NEED’s Sarah Palin NOW more than EVER.

    And I can NOT stress this enough,…

    Sarah Palin IS ONE of the ONLY women IN the REPUBLICAN PARTY,…

    With the “B A L L S” to tell Barry and his UNION masters,…

    AND the Dumb-O-cRATs to SHOVE their agenda were the sun does NOT SHINE!!.

            Dear Tammy,

            Herman Cain not part of the elite? He’s a former deputy chairman and chairman of the Kansas City Federal Reserve. You can’t be more of an insider than to be a part of that insidious organization. He doesn’t believe the Fed should be audited and supported TARP and bailouts.

            If you are looking for a small government conservative, Cain is not it. If you are content with the big government status quo, vote Cain.

            Best wishes,

    This was all due to phony bailouts to shore-up ONLY his supporters, waging 3 wars at the same time (…a first for any American president!), forcing a very unconstitutional healthcare upon Americans when 70% of Americans said they did not desire the one they were proposing. He is on record of stating that, “…[he] will not leave the issues of ‘Cap and Trade’ to go on to the next administration.” A measure designed to suck more taxes dollars from the masses.
    It is hard to phantom the fact that this guy has the audacity to seek 4 more years to complete the destruction of a Great Nation!

    Most of you won’t know of or remember Barbara Jordan. In my opinion there was never a most honest and dedicated congress person in the Whitehouse. Infortunately members like her are long gone! It takes courage to stand what you believe in. Not go with the majority just because they are the majority.It takes courage today to stand up and say my government policies are wrong and not in the best interet of America. i have been ridiculed, cursed and called a traitor by some. It does seem i was right talking against the War in Iraq and the bombing of Kuwait.Now,since i did not believe a old man in a cave in Afghanistan could mastermind 9/11 it is happening again. I stand by my beliefs. One day all of America will know the truth.If we don’t search for the truth the truth will never be found! Our government isn’t going to tell us. The news media lies. Who but us? The information is there. Research and research. Our freeddom as well as our childrens freedom depend on it.Does anyone know they found new videos take during 9/11? The government isn’t going to tell you.Just the fact that 16 witnesses to 9/11 died, by sucide,airplane crashes,shot to death. poisoned and other causes should make you wonder about cover ups. The meeting with the most powerful man in the ISI from Pakistan before ,during and after 9/11. General Mahmound Ahmad according to the New York Times. The ISI worked with and supported Osama as well as the CIA to carry out attacks in Russias former Satillite countries so the US could prevent their attempt at controlling the oil in the region. Read about why the Caspain Sea is so important in our governments plans. As well as the many oil and gas pipe lines to be built in Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan Iraq,and other satillite nation in the former USSR.It would take a book to explain it all. In short, it is all about oil and gas and who controls it. I have never suggested a book before . I am presently reading Michel Chossudovsky-Americas’ “War On Terrorism. I ordered it from Amazon. Not expensive but will let readers know what, who and why in reguard to our governments plans for the Middle East! Past, present and future. At the least go on the internet while you can still find the truth. I promise, the truth will be hard to find in the future. Censorship has taken on a new meaning! Our government has lied to us in the past to get us in wars and it will lie in the future. Military men are just dumb stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy. Henery Kissenger. Learn who benefits from war and who suffers. I didn’t mention why the US became disenchanted with Osama ben Laden. It was because Osama was against the drugs being grown in Afghanistan to support the CIA operations in the Middle East. The 30 billions the CIA is alloted to carry out covert operations wasn’t enough so drug trafficing made up the rest.Osama was tring to stop it. Like that was going to happen!We need to stop fighting among each other and unite while we have a chance.

    The stench is the smell from the roting corpse of the Fourth Estate – that estate which was made up of the once free press that was murdered by lieberal scum; the press that went from watchdog to lapdog in an amazingly short time. One of the major steps in controlling a nation is to control the flow of information. The leftist scum have done a great job of taking over the flow of information – the lamestream media, TV, the public mis-education system, Google and AOL (The Sluttington Post) are all controlled by lieberal degenerates. Let’s face it, while conservatives were out producing things of value, the parasitic drones of the left were worming their way into those entities that control the flow of information and we are now fighting an uphill battle against the giant propaganda machine the leftist scum have built. Hitlet and Stalin must be proud of their heirs; the lieberals.

      If you check, there are only about a half dozen media businesses that decides what news gets shown and what isn’t. All are owned by liberals. I suspect most are owned by Communists. And it wouldn’t surprise me to learn that Soros owns them all. That is the reason that we don’t hear any difference from them.

      Several years ago, a conservative news magazine came out. “Insight”. I subscribed. It did its best to report the news from a fair distance – i.e, it reported who, what, when, where, why, and how. No opinions except on opinion pages.

      “Times” bought it out. it was immediately shut down. In return I was given a 3 year subscription to Times in exchange for 6 months remaining of my Insight subscription. I cancelled that after two months since I really wanted to see the news and not opinion articles. Now to get a lot of the US news I read British newspapers.

      2) Given the Government an excuse to trample our 4th Amendment rights.
      3) Killed many innocent victims whose only crime was being caught in the middle between the two morally bankrupt sides.
      4) Created crimes that would not have existed without the misguided Drug Laws (due to prices 10 or more times what a Free Market would dictate).
      One would think our country would have learned from the misguided prohibition era which created the Mafia and failed miserably even though large bottles of liquor are much harder to hide and transport than small potent packages of drugs.

        daveh, turning loose drugs on the street will not stop the problem.
        this will only lead to more use of harder drugs and a society destroyed.

        there’s no easy answer and i’m not sure there is an answer. we cannot hold every one by the hand and we can’t throw every one in jail. when society gets to this point it may be this is where we fail and decline into the status of a third world nation.

        when i was young, we were more interested in building model airplanes, hot rod v8′s and very patriotic. today the youth of the nation is more interested in rap, hard rock music, pot and throw in basketball and football. most have no idea who george washington is.

        a lot of the hippies that were selling and using drugs are now teachers in the schools and college. that should give you a clue.
        we have a president who is in the process of destroying our technical advantage, shutting down nasa and i would bet he smokes pot.

          Are you going to become a drug user, Chuckb, if it becomes legal? Do you know anybody else who doesn’t use now, but will become a user if it becomes legal? Are you an alcoholic? It’s legal, you know.
          Your kind of people have had 40 years to stop the usage. Has it done any good? Meanwhile you’ve put millions of innocent people at risk with your high-minded war on drugs, as well as spending billions of taxpayer dollars on your futile efforts. Here are some of the results of well-intentioned but misguided drug policies:
          http://www.cato.org/raidmap/

          Your same kind of unsupported fear-mongering preceded Portugal’s decriminalization of drugs. It’s been 10 years now, and the majority of the Portuguese people wouldn’t turn it back.

          • chuckb

            daveh, your kind of people?? just what the hell do you mean your kind of people? maybe it’s your kind of people that’s instigating the problem. maybe if people taught their children better morals we wouldn’t have to worry about drugs.
            as a high minded your kind of people person, keep the drugs off the street, enforce the law, and for all the pot users keep the price high.
            it’s not called dummy dust for nothing.

          • DaveH

            First of all, I have taken one puff off of one joint in my entire life. I don’t even take aspirin. I’m a virtual teetotaler.
            I am atheist, Chuck, and I have more morality in my little finger than you could muster in your whole body. You won’t catch me forcing my way on other people who don’t live like I think they should. Those people who do drugs most of the time aren’t harming anybody but themselves. Then your self-righteous kind of people come along and violently force your way on them. Whether you actually perform the violence or hire somebody else as proxy with your vote, you are still complicit.
            Your kind are the aggressors. But you’re apparently too ignorant to realize that.

          • karolyn

            Chuck – There will ALWAYS be people who want to get high! The ONLY way to EVER curtail is is education from a very young age with cooperation of parents. Unfortunately, the cooperation of parents is not a given.

      • http://marcum1@wildblue.net coal miner

        DaveH,
        I agree with you 100 percent.Legalize drugs now. The only ones who benefit from illegal drugs, are the drug pushers,our kids are the victims and making dope legal and dirt cheap,we can actually put these cock.roaches out of business.There would be no profit in dope.

        • DaveH

          Exactly, Miner. And you bring up a very good point (the kids). Most people are propagandized to believe that the Drug Laws benefit the children, but in reality the drug laws have caused the supply and demand issues which have driven the price of illegal drugs sky-high. In turn, the high prices have given the “pushers” a very big incentive to entice people (including children) to do drugs. Without those high prices, there would be little incentive to coerce children (or people at any age) to buy those drugs.

    • karolyn

      Well, that’s one thing I like about the Libertarians. I am totally against the drug war. The money can be spent in better fashion in rehabilitation and education.

          • Karolyn

            They’re just beyond your comprehension.

          • DaveH

            Karolyn,
            You do have a great capacity for rationalization.
            Somebody must always have physical possession of any goods (wealth). Who decides who has that possession in your world? A political body, of course. And those controllers always keep most for themselves. It is human nature. And then what is the incentive for people to produce? There would be little. That is why Socialist societies always produce weak economies.
            And Karolyn, since you claim to be so generous, I think you should put your money where your mouth is, and give your possessions to all those poor people in the world who make 1/10 the income that you do. I might add, they make that 1/10 because they have swallowed the same load of crap that you have swallowed.

          • DaveH

            I quit working a couple of years ago, Karolyn, because I got tired of working sick so that people like you could take a large portion of my earned money. What are you going to do when most of the other producers follow my lead? Who’s going to support your commie fanny then?

            To me, whats mine IS mine and I will keep it.

          • karolyn

            Dave – Why do you keep referring to my being a taker of other people’s money. You know by now that I worked my whole life, since the age of 17 and have only had to get help from the government this late in life by means of Food Stamps (and not that much of that!). I have always been a hustler and proud of it. My goodness! I took a job with AmeriCorps! I am so bad! I asked you once before if you could find no work for 4 years and were offered a job with the government would you take it; and you responded no. To me that is pretty dumb. Job vs. no job and you would go for no job. Of course, I’m sure you have a source of income; and, unfortunately for me, it is easier for a man to make money than a woman. I am not a teacher or a nurse, which have been the only jobs available here; and now the teaching positions are even gone. Oh, can’t be a waitress – bad hips. Too smart for WalMart. Do the math!

  • 45caliber

    To be honest, I expect to see Oblama win. Not because the GOP ignores Ron Paul. Not because they won’t run anyone of value against Oblama. Not because of a lot of political reasons.

    I expect him to win because his union buddies are the ones to program and “repair” the voting computers. They will do exactly the same thing they did for Reid, Pelousy, Boxers, etc. – rig the voting machines to elect their candidate regardless of who the people want.

    • Palin12

      I’m pretty sure that’s what happened here In Nevada during the Angle-Reid election. Angle was up by 2.8% the morning of the election, and then lost. Reid had tons of money from the unions to run nonstop attack ads on TV and even the internet. You couldn’t even watch a YouTube video without sitting thru an attack ad first.

  • Antonio

    The possibility of obama being re-elected are high, afterall, he was hand placed in the white house. Just like he was hand place in the fancy mansion in chicago (ain’t even his house) its all a show. Some people here say Ron Paul will be a good canidate and i agree, but remember THEY will only allow those who will follow their agenda to run. It really doesn’t matter who else runs for the big office. obama is the one THEY want and he will stay and if they have they will rig the votes just like they did with REID either way he will stay. THEY have given everything to obama his fake BC, his fake house in chicago, his fake education at harvard and they will give him the seat again.

    • Kate8

      Antonio – That’s what I’ve been saying, too. Things will be rigged for Obama to stay in, one way or another.

      • Wayne937

        Kate8, that is why Obama is in office not. Those stupid Acorn Nuts had a big hand in putting him in office. They are the ones that should suffer, not he Conservatives.

        karolyn – Don’t you think that is an obvious point? It’s just has nothing to do with the issue.

        Government is not God, and they have no right to own everything, or to take from some and give to another. Government is made up of greedy, power-seeking, self-interested, fallen men and women, and they have no more ability to know what’s best than anyone else. In fact, they are generally more corrupt and can be bought by the highest bidder.

        Karolyn, what a dumb comment to make. If I go out and work by the sweat of my brown, and earn a few bucks, it is mime. I worked for it amd I have a right to keep it. I don’t owe some lazy, or duped up bum anything that is too lazy to work and most likely sitting in the shade, on a high, while I’m working. Can’t you get that through your head. We all need to take responsibility for ourselves and to accept that responsibility graciously. I would not feel right sitting on my rear and getting paid for something I had not earned. Why do you Libs feel you have a right to something that someone else had worked for? It is a sad country when we have people feeling this way. Be responsible for yourself, Carolyn, I don’t want to work and support you, and your kind. People have their own families to raise instead of having to support others to lazy to work.

  • Mari

    First off – thank you to those who praised my previous post. I read a few posts where they used the recent election in Buffalo, NY as a great achievement for the Democrats and Liberals – come on – Buffalo, as most of New York, is the epitome of Liberalism run amok. The district she just won is about to be redistricted – why? Because the population in decreasing. People are leaving the area, because there are few jobs, lots of people on “entitlement” programs, high crime, high taxes, unionized public servants who are draining the money pool, a lot of government regulations, etc. Things are so out of whack in New York that little Villages and Towns that were once picturesque little areas where people would visit to escape the urban areas are now almost boarded up ghost towns. The cities of New York are populated by more people on “entitlement” programs than workers. You have to have a permit to own a gun in New York, but there are so many laws that make legal, honest gun owners criminals. Example – there was a story of a man in Western New York that shot the tires out of a car of the guys who had just robbed his warehouse – he wanted to impede their escape. He ended up arrested and in more trouble than those who committed the crime. In Buffalo, crime is rampant. In New York City, it is now a crime to smoke outside. In New York they hamper any type of industry or business and cater to illegal immigrants (New York City is a santuary city) and people against progress. New York ignores anything that goes against their liberal ideals. Right now, they are ignoring treaties established with Native Americans and imposing tax laws on Native American business’. Why? They need the money – tax paying people are leaving. I could go on and on, but New York and California are two states that going broke due to liberalism and Illinois i

  • Mari

    is not far behind. It’s ridiculous. These three states are great examples of Liberalism run amok. It’s like a fungus and we need to stop it before it takes over the whole country. I know about New York – been there, done that, I’m GONE.

  • Ronald Johnston

    osama obama

  • Earl, QUEENS, NY

    Talk about defeat vs. victory, let’s also consider the special election last week for the Congressional seat in upstate NY; in which the democrap won. Nazi Pelosi, et al, seem very happy about this; as if it were a victory for the democraps’ lies about Medicare!!

    There are definitely lessons to be learned here. First, I believe the Tea Party should alert all voters when a fake tea partier is running as a 3rd party on the ballot. Can you imagine the ranting we’d hear from Democraps if conservatives put a 3rd party on the ballot who pretended to be a liberal in order to split the democraps’ votes?? Secondly, this proves what a disaster 3rd parties are. Even if this 3rd party candidate were a real tea partier, it would’ve siphoned votes off the GOP in this predominate congressional district. Remember, 3rd parties rarely win. While we may be frustrated with RINOs and GOP wimps who aren’t as conservative as we’d like, let’s not forget that voting for Democraps will only make bad situations worse, as evidenced by the 2006 and 2008 elections. Third, yes, the democrap got less than 50% of the vote, so that should refute the Democraps’ boasting of their policies winning the election. Fourth, maybe it’s time for all GOP candidates to get their act together. As a recent Newsmax poll indicated, a majority of Americans want the GOP to follow the Tea Party. If they heeded the Tea Party, then there’d be no need for a 3rd (conservative) party, and we could defeat many more democraps!!

    FINALLY, in addition to refuting the democraps’ lies when it comes to medicare or ‘medi-scare’, the GOP should also point out the irony of what democraps say. By that, I mean tell everyone that it’s the democraps who want to cut medicare to fund Obummer-care, which needs to be repealed – yesterday or sooner!! Under Obummercare, there will be death panels. Retirees who worked all their lives and paid into Medicare via FICA taxes will take a backseat to illegal aliens and other Democrap Party interest groups. In other words, the seniors will be stiffed of what they paid for!! Likewise, it’s the democraps who are bankrupting both social security and medicare, and these programs will soon collapse and go bankrupt without reasonable reform!!
