Obama and the Race Card

For the Record...This blog is written and controlled by an American of Mexican descent. I have NO race cards to play.

The Lame Stream Media hasn't lost its love affair for Barack Obama. If they find something that doesn't smell right to them, like well used sneakers, they jump on it. So goes the publishing of Obama's comments at the Congressional Black Caucus. LSM jumped in to lambast reporter Mark Smith...

It's All About Our Health

ObamaCare is a massive bill waiting to be paid...if it's Constitutional. Health officials have already spoken out and warned folks that insurance rates will go up. So much for Obama's declaration that "nothing will change."

Texas City Renames Major Street after Socialist

This year the San Antonio, Texas city council backed by the city mayor renamed one of its major streets in the downtown area after Cesar Chavez. For more than a century Durango street was the name of a major SA corridor running east to west in the vibrant downtown area of the city. And then the name change.

Certain San Antonio citizen groups petitioned the city council to change the name of Durango Boulevard to Cesar Chavez Boulevard. The city council listened to the pros and cons of renaming the street to include the high cost of renaming it. A vote came up and the petition to rename was passed.

Did the citizens and SA city council review a history of Cesar Chavez? Did anyone know that Chavez was a Socialist who studied under Chicago radical Saul Alinsky. Did they know that Fred Ross, who worked for Alinsky, was the principal mentor for Cesar Chavez and Dolores Huerta. Was Cesar Chavez a Communist at heart? Did anyone know that both Ed Roybal and Cesar Chavez worked closely with a leading Los Angeles Communist Party USA member and Democratic Party activist, Bert Corona?

Apparently no one asked or no one cared. The SA mayor does lean to the left, touting Obama "green" initiatives and giving gays equal status in city government regarding benefits. But then all these issues are just the beginning of the current SA city council leftward Democratic voting trend.

By the way...The new street name signs were up within days of the council vote. Maybe the vote was a mute issue?

EPA BOSS SAYS NO TO JOB-KILLING

Regulation Nation: EPA Chief Rejects GOP Charges She’s Imposing Job-Killing Rules

Well what did you expect her to say?

Is Warren Buffet Senile?

Listen, this is not you...
just a cartoon of you...
understand?

Twenty Percent, Si. Twenty-Five Percent, No.

No, Mr. President, not everything Americans earn belongs to you.

WASHINGTON -- It is clear from the way President Barack Obama has been talking about the federal budget recently, and about taxation since he came to office, that all the money that Americans earn belongs to the federal government. The key words in this conversation are "tax expenditures." President Obama has lost a lot in tax expenditures and he wants more of those tax expenditures back. He can spend that money, he believes, more wisely than the citizenry -- that is to say, you and me.

He has wiggled and wobbled on the nation's finances over the years. First he spent money that he did not have. Then he threatened to raise taxes on the rich to pay for it. Then he spent again money that he did not have. Now he is getting very serious about the budget, by which he means the budget deficit which is so large you do not even want to think about it. So he is back to taxing the rich again, which eventually means you and me.

So he has announced a strategy to cut the deficit by $4.4 trillion over the next ten years. He is going to get $1.1 trillion of it back from winding down our war effort. He accounts for another $1.2 trillion from cuts that have already been enacted --he thought we would not notice. Then there is $430 billion from lower interest payments, which he assures us are coming from lower debt payments that he assures us are coming. Finally, there is the federal income tax. He will have the rich pay as high a tax rate as the middle class by raising their taxes $450 billion, using the "Buffett Rule." That is the rule that Warren Buffett has proclaimed that millionaires and billionaires pay taxes at a lowerrate than the middle class.

Unfortunately for the President, the Buffett Rule is like much else in his administration. It is a hoax. Mr. Buffett was wrong, and the President did not check Mr. Buffett's numbers, or, if he did, he did not think we would check the numbers. Sources as diverse as the Wall Street Journal and the Associated Press have demonstrated that millionaires and billionaires pay taxes -- as you would expect -- at a higher rate than the middle class. How could Mr. Obama, the smartest policy wonk of all, get things so wrong?

"This year," the AP reports, "households making more than $1 million will pay an average of 29.1 percent of their income in federal taxes, including income taxes, payroll taxes and other taxes…." Households with incomes of $50,000 to $75,000 average 15 percent. Yet if the President and Mr. Buffett have their way, not for long. Soon we shall all pay higher taxes, because millionaires and billionaires could have their wealth expropriated by the government and that would not be enough to slake the federal government's thirst for our income. As the Wall Street Journal observes, "Mr. Obama could tax every billionaire in America at a 100% rate and still wouldn't make a dent in the federal government deficit."
During the Johnson Administration, LBJ was at an airport and about to get into the wrong helicopter. An army staff sergeant ran up and redirected him: "Mr. President, that is your helicopter over there." To which the President replied, "Son they are all my helicopters." President Obama suffers the same delusion. He believes all the money the citizenry earns is his money.

His government is now gorging itself on 25 percent of GDP. That is a peacetime record. Historically in peacetime the figure was more like 20 percent of GDP and lower. The way to budgetary solvency is not to raise taxes, and take even more money out of the productive sector of the economy. It is to cut spending back to the historic level of 20 percent, freeing the private sector to grow the economy. President Obama is throwing money at green projects like Solyndra, now under congressional investigation, and other farfetched schemes. It appears he cannot spend his "tax expenditures" more wisely than private investors, who create jobs that last longer that last even beyond the next fiscal budget.
It is time his opposition remind him of a historic rule for budgetary formulation: "Twenty percent, si. Twenty-five percent, no."

...And Still More on the LightSquared Scandal

It ain't over until its over...and the LightSquared inquiry is getting deeper and deeper. Read this artcle and more from HotAir...
White House offered “guidance” to second witness in LightSquared inquiry

posted at 8:45 am on September 20, 2011 by Ed Morrissey


printer-friendly

 

Last week, The Daily Beast’s Eli Lake opened up a new scandal in the White House by revealing that a four-star Air Force general told Congress that Obama administration officials had pressured him to change his testimony about LightSquared, a company with ties to Obama and his election campaign. Eli follows up today with a report that a second witness, a head of a federal agency, says the White House also offered him “guidance” by asking him to insert a paragraph expressing confidence in LightSquared’s efforts:
[T]he White House’s Office of Management and Budget urged federal officials testifying before two House oversight hearings in the last month to say they hoped testing for GPS and LightSquared interference would take only 90 days, according to interviews.
The Daily Beast obtained the paragraph the OMB asked government witnesses to insert into their recent congressional testimony, which says in part, “We hope that testing can be complete within 90 days.”
The issue of LightSquared and the OMB’s interest in testimony came to light last week when The Daily Beast reported that Gen. William Shelton, the four-star general in charge of the Air Force Space Command, told House lawmakers in a classified briefing that he felt pressured by the White House to change his testimony on LightSquared. Shelton ultimately rejected the White House suggestions and delivered his own testimony last week.
On Monday, a second witness, Anthony Russo, director of the National Coordination Office for Space-Based Positioning, Navigation, and Timing, told The Daily Beast that he too was asked by the OMB to insert the 90-day timeframe into his testimony before the House Science Committee, but he refused. The hearing originally was scheduled for Aug. 3, then rescheduled for Sept. 8.
Russo says he assumed that the White House approached all of the other witnesses and asked them to insert the paragraph into their prepared testimony. Russo scoffed at the notion that the testing could be complete in 90 days, and ended up editing out that claim. While Shelton told Congress that the White House exerted pressure on him to insert that claim, Russo told Eli that he considered it more “guidance” than pressure.
Still, how many witnesses told Congress that testing could be done in 90 days based on this “guidance” from administration officials? One former FCC commissioner tells Eli that putting a 90-day window on testing would be unprecedented. For one thing, tests like this take some time to execute, but testing often produces unpredicted outcomes. In fact, that’s the whole point of conducting the tests. When those arise, then more testing will be required to resolve the issues discovered, and on a matter as complex as dealing with interference to global navigational systems, 90 days sounds like a ridiculously short period of time.
Congress needs to look into the allegations of witness manipulation on behalf of LightSquared, especially Shelton’s claim of being pressured to make LightSquared look good. If that pressure included insinuations of career damage for testifying honestly, then Congress needs to shine as much light on the connections between LightSqaured and the White House, and the decision to pressure the military on behalf of a donor. At the very least, any further witnesses to Congress from this administration should be asked whether their testimony is entirely theirs, or whether someone else told them to testify in a particular manner.

Report: Secret Recordings Uncovered in ‘Fast and Furious’ Case

Posted on September 19, 2011 at 4:14pm by

CBS News has posted what it claims is a secret recording between a senior ATF Agent and an Arizona gun store owner at the heart of the botched operation “Fast and Furious” weapons sting. The tape could be proof that the ATF tried to suppress evidence found at the crime scene of murdered U.S. Border Agent Brian Terry.

Recorded around March 2011, the tape is the work of Andre Howard, owner of Lone Wolf Trading Company in Glendale, Arizona– which was the primary gun dealer cooperating with ATF in “Operation Fast and Furious.” On the tape, Howard is talking with the lead case ATF Case Agent Hope MacAllister, according to CBS.

More on LightSquared Scandal

Did Obama’s former investment play role in pressuring 4-star general to change testimony?

posted at 10:00 am on September 17, 2011 by Ed Morrissey
regular view

Earlier this week, Eli Lake reported that the four-star Air Force general in charge of US Space Command told a Congressional panel that the White House pressured him to change his testimony to favor a company that shelled out donations for Democrats. LightSquared wants to press forward on a project that the military fears will create serious interference with GPS systems, and General William Shelton was going to address those concerns with Congress before the White House tried to push him into saying a few nice words on behalf of their sponsor. A reminder:
The four-star Air Force general who oversees U.S. Space Command walked into a highly secured room on Capitol Hill a week ago to give a classified briefing to lawmakers and staff, and dropped a surprise. Pressed by members, Gen. William Shelton said the White House tried to pressure him to change his testimony to make it more favorable to a company tied to a large Democratic donor. …
According to officials familiar with the situation, Shelton’s prepared testimony was leaked in advance to the company. And the White House asked the general to alter the testimony to add two points: that the general supported the White House policy to add more broadband for commercial use; and that the Pentagon would try to resolve the questions around LightSquared with testing in just 90 days. Shelton chafed at the intervention, which seemed to soften the Pentagon’s position and might be viewed as helping the company as it tries to get the project launched, the officials said.
As it turns out, LightSquared is more than just a Democratic donor. The Lonely Conservative points us to a July 2011 article at The Huffington Post, in which it seems that Barack Obama himself has a personal interest in LightSquared:
When the Federal Communications Commission granted LightSquared Inc. expedited approval to launch a new wireless Internet service, some powerful voices in Washington expressed alarm, including the Pentagon and one-third of the U.S. Senate.
LightSquared’s bold $14 billion plan, its detractors said, could cripple GPS systems and threaten aviation safety, disrupt military and rescue operations and interfere with high-tech farming equipment and the everyday navigation devices used by millions. …
  • Several major Democratic campaign contributors and longtime Obama supporters have held investments in the company and its affiliates during its tangled decade of existence. They include Obama’s good friend and political donor Donald Gips, his former White House personnel chief, who now serves as U.S. ambassador to South Africa. Records show that Gips maintained an interest, worth as much as $500,000, as the FCC was weighing LightSquared’s request.
  • Obama himself was an early investor and came to the presidency a firm believer in expanding broadband. He remains close to other early investors, like Gips and investment manager George W. Haywood, inviting some to luxe social events at the White House and more intimate gatherings like a night of poker and beer.
Presidents put their investments into blind trusts when they take office in order to avoid the appearance of conflicts of interest. Well, most modern Presidents do, anyway. It seems that Obama considers himself an exception to this rule, or at the very least he did until April 2010. The Washington Post’s Michael Shear reported at that time that Obama had refused to establish a blind trust:
In fact, President Obama has rejected the approach taken by most of his predecessors in the modern era.
His personal wealth — which is rapidly growing — is not shielded from his view.
Why not?
Officially, the answer is that the president wanted more transparency in his personal finances — fitting in with his pledges to be the most open White House in history.
“The choice not to have a blind trust is an effort to be transparent about where his money is kept, and the public can see his latest financial disclosure documents, which we have made public and accessible on the Web site,” a senior White House official said.
Well, sort of. The records are not on line, but the White House website does have a request page, which promises to send a PDF of the financial disclosure forms quickly. I’ve requested a copy and will check to see whether Obama still holds any position with LightSquared. I’m going to guess no, only because it appears from Shear’s article that Obama converted most of his holdings into bonds in order to avoid the blind trust.
However, as the HuffPo report notes, that’s not the only problem in this scenario. It’s clear that even if Obama divested himself of LightSquared at some point, he has remained close to the other investors. If the White House pressured Shelton in order to benefit these investors, then we need to find out whether Obama gave that order himself on behalf of his cronies.

Daily Caller Draws Michelle Obama Connection to Solyndra

By Matthew Boyle, The Daily Caller

A Daily Caller review of the George Kaiser Family Foundation’s income tax returns found that during the same year billionaire investor George Kaiser successfully secured $535 million in government loan guarantees for the now-failed solar panel manufacturer Solyndra, his private philanthropy donated to a political cause close to the hearts of several high-ranking Obama administration officials.

Kaiser, a major Obama donor, was a frequent White House visitor during the week before the Obama administration approved that taxpayer-underwritten financial deal.

A $10,000 donation to the Urban Health Initiative at the University of Chicago Medical Center appears on the group’s 2009 tax forms. It was also in 2009 that Kaiser successfully sought to lock down a loan guarantee for the green-energy company Solyndra through his two investment vehicles: Argonaut Ventures and the GKFF Investment Company.

While this donation seems small compared to the far larger numbers involved in the Solyndra scandal, it adds to the pattern of possible connections between the Obama administration and the growing Solyndra scandal.

Several of President Barack Obama’s senior inner-circle advisers worked with or for now-first lady Michelle Obama when she held a leadership post at the University of Chicago Medical Center and helped create the Urban Health Initiative program.

The Notes: Ronald Reagan's PrivateCollection of Stories and Wisdom - A Poem


The snow was blowing out of doors—the drifts were piling high,
   and I could see the pedestrians as they were passing by.

The faces of my Irish friends came dimly through the glass,
   as they trudged the icy streets to worship at their mass.

I watched a while, went back to bed and cuddled safe & sound
   as they braved those icy blasts on a sacred duty bound.

I envy them their strength of heart, the faith that they renew,
   but on an ice cold Sunday morn it’s good to be a Jew.


Mr. Reagan added this poem to his note cards without political correctness in mind. So, don't make too much of it and enjoy the humor behind it!

The Notes: Ronald Reagan's Private Collection of Stories and Wisdom


A Florida Bus Attendant — Ralph Bradford

Human society is built and can only be built upon a foundation of citizenship accountability. The strength of a nation is not its legal machinery, but the moral stamina and courage of its people. The law is but the codification of their conscience. There are not enough laws and never will be, to keep a society stable if its members no longer will it. There are not enough policemen, courts, judges or prisons, nor ever can be to prevent the death of a civilization whose people no longer care. Law enforcement is for the criminal few; it collapses if it must be enforced against the many. When the sense of personal accountability is no longer present in majority strength, then no legal device known to man can hold the society together. Freedom is a timely torch blazing in the dark.

Are We Becoming a Socialist State?

We must listen to the warnings of the past or we will fail as a Republic. The current administration is slowly moving our country to the Left. Government is becoming "Big Brother."

How much do we have to owe to a benevolent central government before we lose our freedoms?

See what some great men have warned us about...



Winston Churchill regarding Socialism

Socialism is the philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, the gospel of envy. Its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.

The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings while the inherent virtue of Socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.

Pope Pius 12th at End WWII regarding Socialism and Communism

 The American people have a genius for great and unselfish deeds—into the hands of America God has placed an afflicted mankind. For men who could not see that what they firmly believed was liberalism added up to socialism could scarcely be expected to see what added up to communism. Any charge of communism enraged them precisely because they could not grasp the differences between themselves and those against whom it was made.

Frédéric Bastiat Addressing National Assembly – France 1849



When the people are encouraged to turn to government to settle all of their problems for them the basis of revolutions is thereby established. For then the people expect the government to provide them with all the material things they want. And when these things are not forthcoming they resort to violence to get them and why not since the government itself has told them that these responsibilities belong to government rather than to them? I am convinced that the revolution would not be possible, if the only relationship between government and the people was to guaranty them their liberty and security.


Samuel Gompers

Doing for people what they can and ought to do for themselves is a dangerous experiment. In the last analysis the welfare of the workers depends on their own initiative. Whatever is done under the guise of philanthropy for social morality which in any way lessens initiative is the greatest crime that can be committed against the toilers. Let social busy bodies and professional morals experts in their pads reflect upon the perils they rashly invite under the pretense of social welfare.

RONALD REAGAN - THE NOTES

I used to think I was poor. Then they tell me I was needy. They said I was being self-defeating -- I wasn't needy -- I was culturally deprived. Then they said deprived was a bad image -- I was underprivileged. That became overused and I became disadvantaged. I still don't have a dime but I do have a great vocabulary.

The Obama Plan

Does Barack Obama have a master plan behind his spend and control scheme? Did he read any of the comments made below by Left leaning leaders, students, and periodicals? Read the quotes and comments below and then decide. Is there anything familiar in what he is doing and what these Left wingers say?


Vladimir Lenin said

The way to take over a country is to debauch the currency. Through a continuous policy of inflation a government can quietly and unobservedly confiscate the wealth of its citizens.

Be prepared to resort to every illegal device to conceal the truth – It would not matter if ¾ of the human race perished; the important thing is that the remaining ¼ be communist.


S.D.S. Leader Said During Campus Riots in the 1960s

It’s not reform we’re after. It’s the destruction of your stinking rotten society and you’d better learn that fast.


Article in 1927 “New Leader” the Official American Socialist Paper stated

The American people will never knowingly stage a revolution to bring about socialism. So we should promote the idea by increasing government control of business and having Socialists get government jobs. One man in government with his eyes and ears open can do more than a hundred men on the outside. They must work to promote more government control of banks, railroads, and other businesses; to start a program of government ownership of electrical power and to work for political control and management of all key industries.

Obama and Company Bribe the Military

RE-POST FROM 
HOTAIR.COM
Bombshell: General accused WH of pressuring him to change testimony for Democratic donor. posted at 12:05 pm on September 15, 2011 by Ed Morrissey  
 
With the White House already reeling over the Solyndra collapse, a new scandal may have erupted today that could make the disappearance of $535 million in taxpayer funds look like a paperwork glitch. Eli Lake starts off his new gig at The Daily Beast with a huge bombshell — an accusation made to members of Congress from a four-star Air Force general that claimed the White House pressured him to change his testimony to boost a big donor to the Democratic Party:

The four-star Air Force general who oversees U.S. Space Command walked into a highly secured room on Capitol Hill a week ago to give a classified briefing to lawmakers and staff, and dropped a surprise. Pressed by members, Gen. William Shelton said the White House tried to pressure him to change his testimony to make it more favorable to a company tied to a large Democratic donor.

The episode—confirmed by The Daily Beast in interviews with administration officials and the chairman of a congressional oversight committee—is the latest in a string of incidents that have given Republicans sudden fodder for questions about whether the Obama administration is politically interfering in routine government matters that affect donors or fundraisers. Already, the FBI and a House committee are investigating a federal loan guarantee to a now failed solar firm called Solyndra that is tied to a large Obama fundraiser.

Now the Pentagon has been raising concerns about a new wireless project by a satellite broadband company in Virginia called LightSquared, whose majority owner is an investment fund run by Democratic donor Philip Falcone. Gen. Shelton was originally scheduled to testify Aug. 3 to a House committee that the project would interfere with the military’s sensitive Global Positioning Satellite capabilities, which control automated driving directions and missile targeting, among other things.

According to officials familiar with the situation, Shelton’s prepared testimony was leaked in advance to the company. And the White House asked the general to alter the testimony to add two points: that the general supported the White House policy to add more broadband for commercial use; and that the Pentagon would try to resolve the questions around LightSquared with testing in just 90 days. Shelton chafed at the intervention, which seemed to soften the Pentagon’s position and might be viewed as helping the company as it tries to get the project launched, the officials said.

As Eli explains, it’s not unusual to distribute prepared Congressional testimony in draft form to other related agencies before giving the testimony. The review gives everyone a chance to make sure that the facts are correct and the testimony is as accurate as possible. But sending Shelton’s testimony to LightSquared would raise big red flags on its own — let alone the accusation that the White House attempted to dictate Shelton’s testimony to benefit LightSquared and their big donor.

Rep. Mike Turner told Eli that this was definitely an attempt to influence Shelton, bias his testimony, and essentially mislead Congress. And that has a watchdog organization drawing parallels between Shelton’s accusation and the Solyndra collapse:

Melanie Sloan, who runs the nonpartisan ethics groups Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, said the emerging allegations about possible White House involvement in LightSquared’s matter seemed to mirror earlier allegations in the Solyndra case.

“With this new set of facts, it starts to sound like a pattern of the White House improperly pressuring people at agencies involving decisions that affect companies tied to donors and fundraisers,” Sloan said. “It’s always a problem when the White House is pressuring anyone’s testimony. I don’t care if you are a four-star [general] or a GS-15 [career employee], you should be giving your true opinion and not an opinion the White House is seeking for political expediency.”

Quite frankly, this would be a lot more blatant and much more troubling. If the White House has been leaning on the military to mislead Congress in order to benefit Democratic donors, that indicates a whole new level of corruption, one that could seriously damage the non-partisan nature of civilian control of the military. If Shelton sticks to this accusation, then Congress needs to hold immediate hearings into who exactly pressured Shelton — and from whom that person took his or her orders.

Obama: Who Needs Congress

Obama Once Again Declares He Wants to Circumvent Congress. He spoke to a convention of La Raza, a Left wing, George Soros funded group about passing laws on his own. Many in the crowd went along with the Emperor in Chief, who cares little for our Constitution, but uses it to his advantage...

Obama Attack-Dog Website

AttackWatch.com is the Administration's Latest Propaganda Arm
by
David Limbaugh

Re-Posted from Townhall.com 16 September 11

President Obama's official re-election campaign has set up a website ostensibly to defend him against false attacks, but its obvious purpose is to smear Republicans and propagandize. What could be more shameless?

Jim Messina, Obama's re-election campaign manager, in a fundraising email announcing the website, said: "Forming the first line of defense against a barrage of misinformation won't be easy. Our success will depend on a team of researchers and writers to stay on the lookout for false claims about the President and his record, bring you the facts, and hold our opposition accountable."

Does any rational person believe these people anymore? They trade in lies and misinformation, and the only chance they have to re-elect Obama -- and it's still slim -- is to grossly distort Obama's record and fabricate fantasies about his opposition.

That's what this new website is all about. It's called "AttackWatch.com," but it should be called "AttackDog.com." It has already proved that in its first few days of existence. When I opened the website for the first time, I saw revolving pictures of Obama's currently front-running GOP rivals, Rick Perry and Mitt Romney, with the accompanying captions "Rick Perry's massive jobs lie" and "Romney's job chart shows flawed understanding of the facts." Glenn Beck's photo also rotates into view with the line "Glenn Beck twists the facts on Israel."

Do you ever remember a White House -- and make no mistake about who's behind this ruse -- soliciting hordes of followers to do opposition research for it? Then again, we've never before had a community organizer in the Oval Office.

The pseudo-indignation of Obama's supporters rings hollow when measured against Obama's very mode of operation throughout his term of office. On every major issue, Obama's practice has been to select, isolate and demonize a target, from fat cat bankers to insurance companies making obscene profits to the greedy rich who didn't want to pay their fair share of taxes to Chrysler's secured creditors who were slandered because they resisted his scandalous debt restructuring scheme.

The concept of this website is perversely amusing when you consider the administration's history of manipulating the Internet for political gain. I reported in my book "Crimes Against Liberty" that the Obama-Holder Justice Department had formed a secret in-house blogging group to participate on websites to influence public opinion. Dubbed the "Blog Squad," this political operation was operating out of the very halls of the institution dedicated to administering justice in the United States. On the taxpayers' dime, it was paying partisan political operatives to scour the Internet for news stories, commentaries and blog posts critical of the administration's agenda and then post comments supporting the administration -- all without identifying who was behind the posts.

Some of the administration's advisers didn't even disguise their intent to use the Internet deceitfully for political purposes. One of Obama's "closest confidants," Cass Sunstein, as head of the administration's Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, has openly advocated the government's use of fake websites and outside 501(c)(3) interest groups to front as independent supporters of government policy and to -- get this -- "cognitively infiltrate" opposing websites.

What, you ask, is "cognitive infiltration"? That's easy. Salon's Glenn Greenwald -- no right-wing extremist -- wrote that while at Harvard Law School in 2008, Sunstein co-wrote "a truly pernicious paper proposing that the U.S. Government employ teams of covert agents and pseudo-'independent' advocates to 'cognitively infiltrate' online groups and websites -- as well as other activist groups -- which advocate views that Sunstein deems 'false conspiracy theories.'"

In other words, one of Obama's right-hand men suggested that government employees masquerade as private citizens to "infiltrate" websites and try to influence public opinion as if they were just random citizens. Before you pooh-pooh this because it purports to be in opposition only to "conspiracy theories," remember that this administration's Justice Department used government publications to defame tea party protesters and returning veterans as conspiracy theorists, racists, religious nuts and domestic terrorists. If you think Sunstein's proposed surreptitious activities are limited to the innocuous exposure of crazies, you have another think coming.

If Obama were to run on his actual record in office -- the worst of any president in modern history -- he would receive a smaller percentage of votes than any president in history. The poverty rate is at a 50-year high, and we have catastrophic unemployment, especially black unemployment, an economy near depression, a doubling of the national debt and a trail of corruption involving untold billions from Stimulus Sr., of which Solyndra is just one example.

The recent New York and Nevada elections and Obama's ever-cratering approval ratings show how desperately he is hemorrhaging support. He has no choice but to divert our attention from the record and onto red herrings he can generate through false characterizations of his opponents. That's what AttackWatch.com is about. That's what the entire re-election effort is about.

The EPA is Killing Us

From the Blaze...Guess Who‘s Fighting Obama’s Job-Killing EPA Rules: Unions!

New EPA rules that threaten to cause electricity rates to “necessarily skyrocket” are also going to kill jobs all across the country. And the prospect of this attack on the economy is making both unions and small-government types stand up and protest.
A Texas company is suing to block new EPA “cross-state air pollution” rules. If the regulations are not changed, Luminant Energy claims it will be forced to close two plants and fire 500 people. Texas was not initially included in the new EPA rules that target sulphur-dioxin emissions with a mandate requiring a 64% reduction from 2010 levels, but in July the Lone Star state was added to the list.
The News-Journal of Longview, TX reports the new regulations will have a considerable effect on the region’s economy:
“This would be devastating to the Northeast Texas economy — not just Titus County,” Titus County Chamber of Commerce Director Faustine Curry said of the losses from the regional employer and taxpayer. “In Titus County, we have the power plant, the mines.”
Union workers in Missouri recognize that the EPA’s aggressive push will cost consumers more money while threatening to destroy jobs.

Energy for Missouri Jobs is pushing for what they call a “balanced” approach from the EPA. Yahoo’s Business Wire reports with a quote from the former head of the St. Louis AFL-CIO:
“Missouri working families cannot afford regulations that will raise electricity costs and destroy jobs during this fragile economic recovery,” said Robert Kelley, President Emeritus of the St. Louis Labor Council and member of Energy for Missouri Jobs. “The EPA needs to consider a balanced approach that gives us cleaner air without sacrificing jobs and increasing energy prices.”

Krugman Thinking about Hell

The following article is by Jeff Poor of The Daily Caller...

New York Times columnist Paul Krugman upset a lot of people with his Sunday blog post in which he claimed “the memory of 9/11 has been irrevocably poisoned” by the likes of George W. Bush and Rudy Giuliani. Former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld expressed his outrage by canceling his subscription to the publication.

“The Five” co-host and “Red Eye” host Greg Gutfeld condemned Krugman’s article on Monday’s broadcast of “The Five.”

“So, on the 10th anniversary of 9/11, New York Times columnist Paul Krugman delivered the odious piece of drivel on the attack,” Gutfeld said. “The headline is ‘Years of Shame.’ It’s not directed at radical Islam. Instead he targets America and its quote, ‘fake heroes.’ Krugman claims that the atrocity has been hijacked – a sick word since he is not talking about the real hijackers that killed 3,000 Americans. He’s referring to George Bush and Rudy Giuliani who he thinks capitalized on the horrible crimes.”

Krugman closed the comment section on his blog for the controversial post, which Gutfeld took issue with. He offered a few harsh words for the columnist.

“The worst part, at the end of the column, the creep writes ‘I’m not going to allow comments on the post for obvious reasons,” Gutfeld said. “That obvious reason: He’s a coward. Why else would you ban responses? He is like a 10-year-old boy crank calling all of us to hang up before he hears the response, hearing shame for his own wickedness. Now I watched the memorial services and I feel sorry for the families whose grief never ends, but since I’m lousy at emotional reflection, usually I avoid it. But I can summarize how many feel today in nine words: Go to hell Paul Krugman, you bitter bearded buffoon.”

The Path to 9-11...a Disney Secret

Walt Disney productions invested heavily in a two part mini-series about the events leading up to September 11th 2001. The title was "The Path to 9-11." BUT...the drama series went sour for former president Hillary and Bill Clinton since it showed that their administration ignored signs of pending disasters. Did Disney pull the series, never to be seen again, to save Clinton embarrassment? You decide.

Read more about it Below...

Excerpt from the article..."When ABC News first announced its plans to air “The Path to 9/11” in the fall of 2006, liberal groups and Democratic politicians reacted harshly. Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, several of his Democratic colleagues in government, and liberal activists from ThinkProgress and other online opinion websites wrote letters to Disney CEO Bob Iger begging him to not air it."

Always Remember the 11th of September

Life has changed since that day in September ten long years ago
All those lives unfulfilled, all those lives in Heaven's flow

We were so free, we were so protected
No evil could ever our lives have infected

And then it all happened, and then our lives changed
Only because of despots deranged

I am sad this day
I am knelt to pray

I never knew them, but they did live
I pray to God for what they did give

Each was a neighbor, each was a friend
Each lived for others until the very end

But why dear God, why
Tell why did they die

Man has free will
Some use it for ill

But I'll take your prayers and honor your dead
They were My children and their end I did dread

Look for tomorrow and then someday
You will all be at Peace...So for now just Pray

Lefties MSNBC & Politico Can't Stop the Republicans

We all know that MSNBC is one of the biggest Obama boosters in the media. Politico also slants politics his way. But neither could score much at the Republican Presidential Debate.

In my opinion, the losers were MSNBC and Polticio. The winners were all GOP contenders! Need more information, read below...

Unions...is this How Communist Russia Began?

Barack Obama will not condemn the hate speech of Jimmy Hoffa Jr, and neither will Richard Trumka the AFL-CIO union boss. Obama and Trumka have been in bed together for a long time; it's no time to split the sheets! So..they both, along with Hoffa, just agree to fight the Tea Party...they better remember what happened the last time someone tried to bust up our Tea Party!

Liberal Hearst Newspaper San Antonio Express-News Takes Shots at Rick Perry

The liberal Hearst newspaper San Antonio Express-News featured two front page and two editorial jabs at Rick Perry in the Sunday 4 Sept. 2011 edition. Front page - about Perry's campaign aide Dave Carney "He's the driving force of the Perry machine" The "machine" comment makes you think of bad politicians! Front page - about Perry "Cowboy rides into unfamiliar terrain." It's funny how liberals used that term for Reagan! Editorial - "Did late infusion of cash to Perry pass ethical test?" The writer questions 2006 donations...a little late? Editorial - "A tale of two Rick Perrys - 'Fed Up!' Rick Perry can't win a general election, even in 2012." I wonder if the writer even read the book? The Bottom-Line...the liberal legacy of William Randolph Hearst lives on in his Left-wing media organization...Rosebud!

Obama-Talk...the Ham Produces Spam

Ever wonder what Obama is talking about? The guy speaks in riddles. He tries to draw pictures for us "dumb people." He is so smart...how smart is he....that he invented many of the situations in his books.

Hilda Solis has No Clue...Just Propaganda

When asked about job growth in Texas, Labor Secretary Hilda Solis had no clue. It's been in the news for months that Texas has grown more jobs than all other states combined. But...Hilda was clueless.

She did have some bad things to say about Texas. She pointed out that Texas was a "right to work" state as if that was an evil thing. She talked about education, rules in the work place and more.

She also mentioned work place injuries in Texas. Specifically she mention the construction business. I tried to look for the truth, but all I got was a slew of web sites for injury lawyers! Remember that Texas just passed lawsuit abuse reform making it harder for lawyers to get ludicrous amounts of money.

Here is what Hilda Solis-Obama did say about Texas...

Selected Excerpts from "Fed Up!" by Rick Perry

Gov Rick Perry has his opinions regarding Al Gore. This excerpt, in my opinion, is right on target. Please read on from "Fed Up!" page 92...

"Al Gore's ego must have taken a tremendous bruising in the aftermath of the 2000 election, when he was so close to victory he could taste it. As time passed, we began to see the real Al Gore - not the contrived version that ran for president in earth tones, but the liberal extremist who took a hatchet to President Bush in front of the MoveOn.org faithful. Gore found a global cause, and he became the prophet who could protect us from Armageddon. Soon he took his PowerPoint presentation around the globe, raising concerns about melting icebergs and undersized polar bears. The Left embraced him like never before. Hollywood toasted him as their hero. The Nobel Committee gave him a peace prize. He won an Oscar. And it's all one contrived phony mess that is falling apart under its own weight. Al Gore is a prophet all right, a false prophet of a secular carbon cult, and now even moderate Democrats aren't buying it."

In my opinion, Gore has invested heavily in the "green" business. He is trying desperately to protect his investment, so why not be a "false prophet" as long as he can make money. What do you think?

Obama Job Creation...Invest in Bankruptcy...Raid Guitar Maker

I guess that the Obama administration's job making strategy follows a very odd path. The environmentally friendly regime invests in their favorite global warming crusaders and then the sky falls. This year at least two highly touted green jobs companies have filed for bankruptcy.  One was hailed as as a jobs maker in Massachusetts; another was hailed as a federal loan sure thing.

Evergreen Solar Inc. entered bankruptcy protection in August of 2010 after closing a plant in Massachusetts. There's nothing like solar panels made in the USA...unless they're cheaper when the Chinese make them! China can sell everything cheaper; so why start a solar panel company and expect better sales results than others? What's worse...where's the jobs?

Next for the bankruptcy carousel was Solyndra, also a maker of solar panels. The Obama administration was so sure about the future of Solyndra that it gave the company a guaranteed $25 billion in loans. So we, the people, paid for another Obama decision. So much for "green" jobs!

Is there no end to Obama jobs making? Well, yes there is...

Just recently, the federal government raided the Gibson Guitar Corp. According to the Obama administration, Gibson had broken the Lacey Act of 1900 by importing certain woods for their guitars. The federal government read another country's laws one way and treated the importation of woods as illegal. That's weird...another department in that administration has no problem with illegals...but that's another story. The feds accuse Gibson of fraudulently importing Indian woods. The fed raids closed the Gibson plant and its production. So much for job creation or even job continuous.

Well, so much for job creation! It seems so logical, in my opinion, that Barack Obama wants to turn the U.S. into a Third World country because we are not exceptional. We are too American!

Big Government and YOU

Do you feel the yoke of big government on your shoulders yet? Do big government regulations find their way into your bank account? Is your paycheck smaller than it was maybe three years ago? Retirees, when was the last time you received a Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA) from the Fed? Is life getting better or worse? You decide! Until then, please read on...

Big government has its way of injecting itself into every part of your life. That big government usually is the federal bureaucracy...sometimes state and local governments do their part ding us as well.

The federal government under Obama has increased the size of its tentacles, moving ever so slowly into your very household. The 16th Amendment to our Constitution was ratified in 1913. This gave Congress the right to tax our income. Since then the federal government has used this amendment to lower, raise , and adjust taxes at will. Obama wants more of it. He claims the increase in taxation is only for the "very rich." Please define the "very rich." Is this category for millionaire athletes who throw, bounce, or pitch a ball? Are Hollywood "stars" and executives part of that group? Are members of the Executive branch, Congress, and the Judiciary who retire and write books or lobby for living included in the "very rich?" How about those folks who start a small business and maybe take home over 200K a year after creating jobs, paying employees and overhead, are they the "very rich?"

Next comes the infamous EPA, short for Environment Protection Addiction. The "greenies" (those who broadly support the goals of the environmental movement) in that group want to save the world from climate change, global warming, animal extinction, and man's selfish expectations to live free. Someone tell the "greenies" that man's carbon footprint is probably smaller than a cow's. Cattle produce methane that is 23 times more powerful than carbon dioxide, one of those global warming culprits. It's time for those "greenies" to give up milk, cheese, and the Big Mac! The EPA is costing us money.

The EPA is also guilty of reducing our energy reliance. It is because of EPA rules that we must get oil from other countries when we have the resources here to manage a great deal of our consumption. By the way, developing countries are getting on the energy bandwagon and are using more of it (oil) daily. The oil producing countries will sell to the highest bidder! Meanwhile the U.S. sits on untouched reserves because of Gestapo like EPA oversight.

Big government has more tentacles ready to get the citizenry. The Department of Education spends countless amounts money to improve our children's education yet has failed to really improve anything but bureaucratic paychecks. The Justice Department punishes the innocent and gives voice to the criminals. Remember ACORN and the New Black Panthers? The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) pushes for more unionization through subliminal messaging. True payback to a group (unions) who funded and voted for Obama. Then we Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae both government owned "businesses" gong after banks for their part in the housing bubble. Yet Freddie and Fannie forgot to investigate their own lending practices. They turned around and approved bailouts and loans.

The list goes on. Suffice to say that the federal government is bigger but not better than it used to be. We have lost many of our freedoms. We are becoming more and more dependent on the federal government. Our Constitution has become a "nice piece of paper to behold" but with little meaning. Can we fix it...I sure hope so. Until then let's all make our independent voices heard. Use the Internet. Use letters to your Congressional reps. Use word of mouth. Use emails. Use whatever source you have or be ingenious and give us all a way to have our voices heard. Be free and be safe with God as our Protector.
