Obama-messiah: Americans must give up gun rights to stop flow of guns to Mexico

February 26, 2009

gun-ban-2nd-amendment-is-about-stopping-thugs

Obama-messiah now says we must give up more of our 2nd Amendment rights by banning “assault weapons” (i.e., rifles that could be used to protect ourselves from rioters and criminals) in order to help “reduce the flow of guns going across the border into Mexico.”

 

The Stuttering Messiah as told a lot of lies, but this is one of his biggest whoppers.  Those scum-of-the-earth drug dealers south of the border in Mexico don’t care whether they get their weapons from the U.S., or Russia, China, Israel, or any of the other 98 countries that mass-manufacture and sells weapons. 

 

The entire idea that we have to give up our Constitutional rights in order to help stop drug dealers in Mexico from getting guns is ludicrous at face value.  They will get guns no matter what. 

 

In short, now that violence from heavily armed Mexican drug gangs is spilling over across the U.S. southern border, our own government wants to disarm us so we can’t protect ourselves.

 

When the so-called “assault weapons” ban expired under Bush in 2004, Democrats were quick to predict a rash of violent new crimes sweeping America. 

 

The bleeding heart liberals painted pictures of evil “assault weapons” owners firing wildly into the streets, killing and maiming hundreds or even thousands every year.  Of course, no such carnage emerged.   Indeed, we have now had five years with no assault weapons ban, and violent crime committed with assault weapons actually dropped.

 

So the Obama-messiah administration now has to lie through their teeth again in order to get the ban reinstated. 

 

Obama-messiah promised during the elections that “I am not out to take your guns.”  The dirty bastard lied through his teeth. 

 

Two things to do:

 

1.)  Call your representatives and let them know you are against the reinstitution of the assault weapons ban proposed by Attorney General Eric Holder.

 

2.) Join a good 2nd amendments rights organization like the National Rifle Association, Gun Owners of America, or others, today.

Obama to Seek New Assault Weapons Ban

http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/story?id=6960824&page=1

 

Previous Ban Expired in 2004 During the Bush Administration

 

By JASON RYAN

WASHINGTON, Feb. 25, 2009 

 

The Obama administration will seek to reinstate the assault weapons ban that expired in 2004 during the Bush administration, Attorney General Eric Holder said today.

 

Wednesday Attorney General Eric Holder said that the Obama administration will seek to reinstitute the assault weapons ban which expired in 2004 during the Bush administration.

 

“As President Obama indicated during the campaign, there are just a few gun-related changes that we would like to make, and among them would be to reinstitute the ban on the sale of assault weapons,” Holder told reporters.

 

Holder said that putting the ban back in place would not only be a positive move by the United States, it would help cut down on the flow of guns going across the border into Mexico, which is struggling with heavy violence among drug cartels along the border.

 

“I think that will have a positive impact in Mexico, at a minimum.” Holder said at a news conference on the arrest of more than 700 people in a drug enforcement crackdown on Mexican drug cartels operating in the U.S.

 

Mexican government officials have complained that the availability of sophisticated guns from the United States have emboldened drug traffickers to fight over access routes into the U.S.

 

A State Department travel warning issued Feb. 20, 2009, reflected government concerns about the violence.

 

“Some recent Mexican army and police confrontations with drug cartels have resembled small-unit combat, with cartels employing automatic weapons and grenades,” the warning said. “Large firefights have taken place in many towns and cities across Mexico, but most recently in northern Mexico, including Tijuana, Chihuahua City and Ciudad Juarez.”

 

At the news conference today, Holder described his discussions with his Mexican counterpart about the recent spike in violence.

 

“I met yesterday with Attorney General Medina Mora of Mexico, and we discussed the unprecedented levels of violence his country is facing because of their enforcement efforts,” he said.

 

Holder declined to offer any time frame for the reimplementation of the assault weapons ban, however.

 

“It’s something, as I said, that the president talked about during the campaign,” he said. “There are obviously a number of things that are — that have been taking up a substantial amount of his time, and so, I’m not sure exactly what the sequencing will be.”

Obama-messiah proposes raising taxes nearly $1 trillion over ten years…

February 26, 2009

irs-shaking-money-out-of-taxpayerThe Obama-messiah has proposed raising taxes nearly $1 trillion over ten years.  Isn’t that wonderful? 

 

As you can see from the news article below, these gargantuan new taxes appear to fall solely on businesses as well as on people making more than $250,000 annually (who are most likely, business owners). 

 

In other words, these are “stick it to the rich” taxes.

 

But the gullible American public never get it.  They are the only ones who pay taxes.  Period. 

 

In reality, business owners will simply be forced to lay off workers and raise the prices of their goods and services in order to pay the extra one trillion dollars in taxes foisted upon them by the Obama-messiah. 

 

That means the general public who purchase those goods and services will in reality pay those taxes in the form of higher and higher prices on virtually everything they buy, and in the form of fewer and fewer raises at work.  Many workers will simply be laid off, so the salaries they were getting can go toward paying those extra taxes, instead.

 

This of course will make it impossible for many middle-class families to afford the goods and services they are used to having.  As the comedian on the Tonight Show said the other night, “Better learn to love soup.” 

 

Conservatives have explained this until they are blue in the face.  But the general public simply doesn’t listen.  They think they are “sticking it to the rich.”  In reality, they are sticking it to themselves.  Ouch.

 

The bottom line is that when businesses are forced by government edict to pay higher taxes, they simply can’t pull the money out of their rectums.  They have no choice but to raise the costs of their goods and services proportionately, hold off on giving raises, and start laying off non-productive workers. But when businesses are blessed with lower taxes, the costs of their goods and services generally remain affordable, and workers keep their jobs. 

 

Dumb, envy-driven middle-class Americans apparently will never understand this. 

 

So let’s stick it to the “rich”…and all hail the Obama-messiah and his brave new socialist order!

Obama-messiah making grab for virtually dictatorial powers

February 25, 2009

obama-change-for-americaThe Obama-messiah is trying to grab virtually dictatorial powers for himself by sidestepping the people’s representatives in the Senate and House and installing White House “czars” to oversee federal policies, the oversight of which rightly belongs to the legislative branch.

 

His actions have been so egregious that even Democrat Senator Robert Byrd (D-W.Va) is complaining of Obama’s “power grab.”

 

Byrd is warning that the Obama-messiah’s actions can “threaten the Constitutional system of checks and balances.” 

 

In other words, Obama-messiah is doing EXACTLY what he accused former President Bush of doing, i.e., ushering in an era of unchecked federal power in which dictates from the Obama-messiah essentially become the law of the land because his executive office “czars” will implement them and carry them out without any legislative input or oversight.

 

I suggested in a previous blog post that people who live in states considering the enactment of state sovereignty resolutions should support those resolutions, and people living in states that have not enacted sovereignty resolutions should work to do so. 

 

Why?  Because a state that has enacted a sovereignty resolution in support of the 10th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution (i.e., the “state’s rights” and “people’s rights” amendment) is going to be more likely to stand up the federal government when federal dictates begin to usurp the rights of the states and the people. 

 

Note in the below news article that Obama has already formed executive offices for health reform policy, urban affairs (i.e., minorities and social affairs) policy, and energy and climate change policy.  He has also stated that he is considering forming a White House office to implement and oversee his proposed new anti-discrimination (read:  “hate law”) policies. 

 

What this means is that he intends to bypass the legislative branch and dictate policy on the federal level for health and medical care (i.e., socialized medicine), environmental issues (i.e., bureaucratic micro-management of your daily life), and social issues (under the banner of “economic and social justice” for minorities, gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgendered individuals).

 

Under the 10th amendment to the U.S. Constitution your state has the right to challenge this otherwise unchecked federal power.  You might really want to speak to your local state legislators about working to enact a state sovereignty amendment.

Byrd: Obama in power grab

http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0209/19303.html

 

By JOHN BRESNAHAN | 2/25/09 10:34 AM EST   Text Size:    

 

Democrat Senator Robert Byrd is a stern constitutional scholar who has always stood up for the legislative branch in its role in checking the power of the White House.

 

Sen. Robert Byrd (D-W.Va.), the longest-serving Democratic senator, is criticizing President Obama’s appointment of White House “czars” to oversee federal policy, saying these executive positions amount to a power grab by the executive branch.

 

In a letter to Obama on Wednesday, Byrd complained about Obama’s decision to create White House offices on health reform, urban affairs policy, and energy and climate change. Byrd said such positions “can threaten the Constitutional system of checks and balances. At the worst, White House staff have taken direction and control of programmatic areas that are the statutory responsibility of Senate-confirmed officials.”

 

While it’s rare for Byrd to criticize a president in his own party, Byrd is a stern constitutional scholar who has always stood up for the legislative branch in its role in checking the power of the White House. Byrd no longer holds the powerful Appropriations chairmanship, so his criticism does not carry as much weight these days. Byrd repeatedly clashed with the Bush administration over executive power, and it appears that he’s not limiting his criticism to Republican administrations.

 

Byrd also wants Obama to limit claims of executive privilege while also ensuring that the White House czars don’t have authority over Cabinet officers confirmed by the Senate.

 

“As presidential assistants and advisers, these White House staffers are not accountable for their actions to the Congress, to cabinet officials, and to virtually anyone but the president,” Byrd wrote. “They rarely testify before congressional committees, and often shield the information and decision-making process behind the assertion of executive privilege. In too many instances, White House staff have been allowed to inhibit openness and transparency, and reduce accountability.”

 

The West Virginia Democrat on Wednesday asked Obama to “consider the following: that assertions of executive privilege will be made only by the president, or with the president’s specific approval; that senior White House personnel will be limited from exercising authority over any person, any program, and any funding within the statutory responsibility of a Senate-confirmed department or agency head; that the president will be responsible for resolving any disagreement between a Senate-confirmed agency or department head and White House staff; and that the lines of authority and responsibility in the administration will be transparent and open to the American public.”


Obama-messiah keeps mid-east cycle of violence going, at U.S. taxpayer expense

February 24, 2009

obama-moneyIsn’t that sweet of the Obama-messiah and his new sidekick, Comrade Ho (aka Hilarious Clinton)? 

 

They are going to give away nearly a billion dollars in “humanitarian and rebuilding aid” to the Palestinian Authority, to help rebuild Gaza.

 

Let’s see now.  I want to make sure I have this straight:

 

First, the U.S. borrows billions of dollars from the bankers to give high-powered weapons to Israel, at U.S taxpayer expense. Then, the Palestinians shoot a couple of homemade rockets costing about a buck and a half into Israeli territory.  And Israel then uses the billions of dollars worth of weapons we gave them to inflict hundreds of millions of dollars worth of damage and carnage onto the Palestinian infrastructure.  

 

Then, in the middle of the worst financial crisis in U.S. history, the Obama-messiah puts U.S. taxpayers on the hook for another billion dollars to have everything the Israelis bombed into oblivion rebuilt.  And then we re-arm Israel, once again at U.S. taxpayer’s expense.  Then the Palestinians shoot a couple of homemade rockets costing about a buck and a half into Israeli territory. And…well…you get the picture.

 

The cycle of violence continues, ad nauseum.  U.S. taxpayers continue to go deeper and deeper into debt, owing money as far as the eye can see into future generations.  Over time, the bankers make billions of dollars off the backs of the hard-working U.S. taxpayers who are forced to pay the interest payments this un-repayable pile of debt that has now reached into the trillions of dollars.  (Yes, the gross national debt is now a mind-boggling $10 trillion, and the interest payments on that debt are paid solely by the U.S. taxpayers.)

 

Our people have become tax slaves to rich men behind the scenes who have a vested interest in keeping the cycle of violence in the middle east going.  

 

Hey…it’s a sweet deal, folks, if you can get in on it.  But if you’re the payee (i.e., taxpayer) it really sucks.  And what more can you say?  All hail the Obama-messiah, who has come to make all things riight!

U.S. (taxpayers) to Give $900 Million for Gaza Reconstruction

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,499068,00.html

 

Monday, February 23, 2009 

 

JERUSALEM —  The United States is preparing to donate more than $900 million for the reconstruction of Gaza, a U.S. official said Monday, as U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton prepared to attend a donors conference for the war-ravaged territory next week.

 

Israeli and Palestinian officials said earlier Monday that Clinton will visit Israel and the West Bank during the first week of March for her first trip to the region as America’s top diplomat.

 

Clinton said during her Asia trip this month that she would attend an international donors conference in Egypt on March 2 to discuss reconstruction in Gaza.

 

She provided no other details, but a U.S. official in the United States said Monday that the Obama administration’s donation will likely top $900 million in humanitarian and rebuilding aid to the Palestinian Authority to help Gaza recover from Israel’s offensive against Hamas last month.

 

The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the donation had not received final approval, said the exact amount was still to be determined.

 

The official added that the aid would not go to Hamas. U.S. officials have no formal contacts with the Islamic militant group Hamas, which runs a separate Palestinian administration in the Gaza Strip.

 

The Israeli officials, meanwhile, said Clinton will arrive in Israel on March 2 for meetings with the country’s top leaders. Israel is currently ruled by a caretaker government as Likud Party leader Benjamin Netanyahu cobbles together a new coalition.

 

The Israeli officials spoke on condition of anonymity because the visit had not been announced by the State Department, which has not released Clinton’s schedule for next week.

 

Yasser Abed Rabbo, a senior aide to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, said Clinton also would visit the West Bank during her stay.

 

U.S. officials have no formal contacts with the Islamic militant group Hamas, which runs a separate Palestinian administration in the Gaza Strip.


Obama-messiah sells U.S. out to communist China; state sovereignty movement picks up steam

February 23, 2009

obama-communistObama-messiah sells U.S. out to communist China; state sovereignty movement picks up steam

 

Well, there goes the neighborhood. 

 

America is now little more than a subsidiary of communist China (see news article below). 

 

And you can thank Obama-messiah and Comrade Ho, aka Hilarious Clinton, for selling us out.

 

Of course, the Obama-messiah and his minions like HC will live in the lap of luxury for the remainder of their lives on this earth.  But our children and our grandchildren will be little more than labor serfs to the Chinese bureaucrats who will call the shots in this country from behind the scenes.

 

Our children and our grandchildren will work and toil and sweat just to pay the interest payment on this massive debt to the Chinese. 

 

The American people are only barely beginning to wake up to what’s happening.  I’m afraid that when they finally figure it out – if they figure it out — there is going to be blood in the streets.

 

Of course, the powers that be are ready for this.  So it will be to no avail.  It will only serve to strengthen the scope and power of the federal government over the people, which is exactly what the Obama-messiah wants.  He is pushing so hard, because he want to induce chaos in order to seize additional power for the federal government. 

 

My recommendation:  Work within the system to get rid of these communist bastards that are selling our country out to their commie friends overseas.  Stay within the confines of civil law, as instructed in our heavenly Father’s Word (Titus 3:1, Heb. 13:17).

 

The 2010 mid-term elections (Nov 2, 2010) are only a relatively short while away.  We need to make sure conservative, Christian, pro-American candidates sweep these elections.  All 435 House seats will be up for grabs.  And 33 or 34 out of the 100 U.S. Senate seats will be up for grabs.  What’s more, 34 out of 50 states will be electing governors during those elections. 

 

Make no mistake, these are going to be make-it or break-it elections for this nation.  We must regain a conservative majority in Congress, and among the states, in order to begin overriding and even reversing Obama-messiah’s blatantly communist policies that are selling this nation down the river.

 

The winds of “change” blew Obama-messiah into office.  But they can blow him right back out again, just as happened when the Republican Revolution swept the liberals out of power halfway through Clinton’s term, and effectively stopped him from  implementing any more of his disastrous policies.

 

We need to make sure the same thing happens again.

 

Also, surprisingly, a number of states are reacting to Obama-messiah’s policies by introducing state sovereignty resolutions. These include Arizona, New Hampshire, Missouri, Oklahoma, Montana, Washington state and Michigan (see resolution #4).  Other states, such as California and Georgia already have such resolutions on the books, thanks to patriotic former members of their legislatures who had long-term vision and could see what was coming as the federal government gained more and more power, and began bullying the sovereign states.  

 

State sovereignty resolutions are designed chiefly to remind the federal government that your state stands firmly on the Tenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which gives the states sovereignty, and protects them from overbearing federal intrusion into state matters, as well as from becoming mere vassals of the federal government.  Most of these resolutions also have language demanding that “the federal government cease and desist mandates that are beyond the scope of constitutionally delegated powers,” which, in Obama-messiah’s case, includes just about everything he is doing. 

 

The Tenth Amendment of the United States Constitution, which is part of the Bill of Rights, was ratified on December 15, 1791, and restates the Constitution’s principle of Federalism by providing that powers not specifically granted to the national government nor specifically prohibited to the states are reserved to the states and to the people. It is based on an earlier provision of the Articles of Confederation: “Each state retains its sovereignty, freedom, and independence, and every power, jurisdiction, and right, which is not by this Confederation expressly delegated to the United States, in Congress assembled.”

 

One of the many beauties of a state sovereignty amendment is that it publicly reaffirms a state’s Constitutional right to LEGALLY oppose the imposition of martial law by the federal traitor-in-chief.  In a state that has reaffirmed its right to sovereignty, it may be easier to convince the local police and local National Guard to remain loyal to their state, should the Obama-messiah attempt to federalize them in order to turn them against their own citizens and force federal policies upon them. The idea is not to instigate a battle between the federal government and the states, but instead, to signal to the feds in advance that they need to back off and stay within the confines of the 10th amendment in their policy-making. 

 

As writer and radio show producer Jake Jones points out in his article in the Evangelical Examiner, titled New Hampshire Lawmakers Say Obama’s Plan Would Void Constitution:

 

“Obama’s plans for a federal handgun license, ‘hate crimes’ laws to regulate Christians’ speech about their own religious beliefs on homosexuality, a youth corps for mandatory public service and the revival of the so-called ‘Fairness Doctrine’ to ‘balance’ talk radio have New Hampshire lawmakers telling Obama to basically grow up and get some better ideas…They say that if Obama’s plans are implimented, it would constitute a nullification of the Constitution for the United States.”

 

Jones goes on to say:

 

“Christian should be concerned with what is going on in the Obama administration.  Freedom of speech is something that Christians have always used to spread the ‘Good News’, tell the truth about sin, and for Pastor’s to speak freely on social and family issues from the Pulpit.  If Obama is successful in asserting his plans, then speaking about any sin including but not limited to homosexuality would be a breach of Obama’s new laws. 

 

The Fairness Doctrine which was removed by Ronald Reagan back in the 80’s stands a good chance to be reinstated under the Obama administration.  There are many ‘Christian Talk’ radio and TV programs that would be limited by the proposed Obama standards.

 

Obama is also pushing for a ‘Hate Crimes’ law that has been discussed, debated by Congress but has yet to be passed.  Obama has made the passage of that law one of his top priorities.

 

Obama’s discussion of a youth corps for mandatory public service is also something that Christians should be concerned about.  That type of legislation sounds a great deal like something that occurred in Nazi Germany.  Next I expect that our young folks would be required to wear uniforms with black arm bands and wear the famous Nazi Jack boots.”

 

If your state is in the process of implementing a state sovereignty resolutions, be sure to support it.  If your state is not, then its high-time to get such a resolution started.  It’s one perfectly legal way for the citizens of the 50 states to send a message to the Obama-messiah that he is overstepping his bounds, and needs to back off.

Obama Sells U.S. to China Inc.

http://www.aim.org/aim-column/obama-sells-u.s.-to-china-inc/

 

AIM Column  |  By Cliff Kincaid  |  February 22, 2009

 

…with Hillary Clinton having signaled to the Chinese dictators that we will beg for their money and ignore unfair trade practices and even human rights violations, it will be left up to President Obama to seal the deal.

 

The truth is starting to seep out. Because of the need for more money to finance the latest bailout―the Obama economic stimulus plan―America is going further in debt to the Chinese Communists. Our country is officially being sold to the highest bidder. And we have striking confirmation of this fact from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

 

The good news is that a correspondent for the mainstream media―Wyatt Andrews of CBS News―has figured this out and has managed to get on the air with his terrifying findings. Andrews’ report on the Friday CBS Evening News with Katie Couric was direct and to the point. Clinton is in China to beg for a handout.

 

“The truth is the Administration needs China’s help. America’s stimulus is very expensive and the U.S. wants China to help finance it,” Andrews reported. This is what America has become―a country that sends its Secretary of State abroad to beg for money from foreigners. In this case, it’s a communist dictatorship that forces women to have abortions, tortures Christians, and threatens the freedom and democratic government of Taiwan.

 

So the cost of the “stimulus” is more sacrifice of American independence and sovereignty, as well as our own values, ideals, and commitment to human freedom. It is a sad day both for America and China.

 

Clinton was shown saying, “We are relying on the Chinese government to continue to buy our debt.” The almighty dollar takes precedence over everything else, even as it falls in value and the dangers of hyperinflation and national bankruptcy loom. The tragedy is compounded by the fact that pandering to the Chinese will not solve anything. This policy, set in motion by big banks and corporations and pursued by Democratic and Republican Administrations, is what got us into this predicament in the first place.

 

Clinton’s comments, which concern the overall economic policy of the new administration, are far more significant than the Obama mortgage plan. Clinton is getting to the heart of the issue―how the mortgage plan and the stimulus are being financed.

 

White House spokesman Robert Gibbs expressed irritation last week that CNBC commentator Rick Santelli went into a rant over the prospect of forcing American taxpayers to underwrite the bad mortgages of deadbeats and others who are unable to pay their mortgages. But Santelli only touched on one small part of the problem.

 

Where’s the outrage over the pro-China policy that spans several administrations, and which has benefited his corporate bosses at General Electric, of permitting the communist dictatorship in Beijing to have the upper hand in global trade relations? All that Santelli has to do to understand this problem is attend a GE annual meeting and listen to the complaints of the GE workers losing their jobs to China. But don’t expect to see anything about that on CNBC, NBC, or MSNBC.  

 

If you want more information on this travesty, please go to the website http://www.screwthatbulb.org and learn how GE is going “green,” which has the effect of shipping American jobs to China. If Santelli did a rant about that, you can bet he wouldn’t be on the air again.

 

We were already in terrible shape under the Bush Administration because of a mysterious financial collapse apparently caused by illegal manipulation of our markets, but now the communists have us completely over a barrel because the Obama Administration, with the acquiescence of Congress, recklessly decided to spend even more money that we don’t have. Under the circumstances, this is criminal negligence.

 

Mrs. Clinton is officially stating what everyone should know is the truth. She deserves credit for being brutally honest. America has become a subsidiary of China Inc. In order for the U.S. to stay afloat, we have to depend on Beijing to finance a bailout. But the other major problem, of course, is that the stimulus is not a bailout in any real sense of the word. It depends on more government debt and borrowing at a huge cost of being more indebted to the Chinese. So the bailout is really digging our nation’s grave deeper.

 

To make matters even worse, as the Andrews report made clear, the cost will include the jobs that the Obama Administration says will be created by the stimulus. He interviewed an American manufacturer about the loss of American jobs caused by China’s trade practices, who said that the “cheating” in global trade has cost millions of American manufacturing jobs.

 

In the end, the only “jobs” that will be created or “saved,” as Obama likes to say, will likely be those benefiting from spending the federal money that the federal government doesn’t have. Most of them work for government at all levels.

 

Productive private sector manufacturing jobs will not be created―and cannot be―because despite their campaign promises, neither Obama nor Hillary will do anything about those unfair Chinese trade practices, such as the currency manipulation, that make Chinese goods artificially cheap and American goods more expensive.

 

The Andrews report, which caught me completely by surprise on a newscast that tends to portray the new Administration in completely flattering tones, was absolutely blistering in contrasting what Obama and Clinton had said during the campaign and what they are doing now.

 

“Both the man who became the President and his future Secretary of State told the voters they would make the [trade] cheating go away,” Andrews reported. He showed candidate Obama saying that he would do everything in his power to stop China from manipulating its currency and Hillary saying that she would “aggressively crack down on China’s unfair trade practices.” These claims were shown to be empty and abandoned campaign promises. We should have assumed that would be the case.

 

Andrews asked Secretary of State Clinton about this and “she explained that times have changed.” Clinton said, “That was at a different time when we weren’t facing the kind of difficult situations we face today.” Translation: we need their money and we are in no position to demand or criticize anything. These Clinton comments preceded Andrews’ remarks about the cost of the stimulus and the perceived need to get China to help finance it.

 

As we had noted in a previous column about the Administration’s so-called economic program, Clinton was going to China for the purpose of getting Chinese money to finance the stimulus. Now we have it all on the record. Her trip was designed to reinforce Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner’s private conversations on this topic with Chinese officials.

 

The land of the free and the home of the brave has now become the land of the quivering milquetoast, in awe of an emerging Communist giant that our big banks and corporations, as well as our government, have built into an economic superpower.

 

President Obama apparently sees nothing wrong with this. Indeed, during the campaign he praised China’s staging of the Olympic Games, saying their infrastructure was impressive and was something the U.S. might consider emulating.

 

Now, with Hillary Clinton having signaled to the Chinese dictators that we will beg for their money and ignore unfair trade practices and even human rights violations, it will be left up to President Obama to seal the deal. When he gives his State of the Union-like speech to Congress and the American people on Tuesday night, he will in reality be auditioning for a front-row seat on the board of directors of China Inc. Don’t expect to hear anything critical of the butchers in Beijing.

Alan Keys: Stop Obama-messiah or “America as we know it will cease to exist”

February 23, 2009

If Obama is not stopped, “America as we know it will cease to exist.”

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2191542/posts

Alan Keyes, a 2008 presidential candidate who is also a plaintiff in one of the many lawsuits challenging Barack Obama’s constitutional eligibility to occupy the Oval Office, charged at a pro-life rally that unless Obama’s social and economic policies are stopped, the United States as we know it is over. 

Keyes’ comments were part of an interview with a reporter from KHAS-TV at a fundraiser for the AAA Crisis Pregnancy Center in Hastings, Neb.

“Obama is a radical communist, and I think it is becoming clear. That is what I told people in Illinois and now everybody realizes it’s true,” said Keyes, who ran unsuccessfully against Obama for the state’s open Senate seat in 2004. “He is going to destroy this country, and we are either going to stop him or the United States of America is going to cease to exist.”

Keyes also reasserted his belief that unless the question of Obama’s eligibility to serve as president is answered definitively, America may face the startling crisis of an executive branch run by a “usurper.”

“Is he president of the United States?” Keyes asked the reporter of Obama. “According to the Constitution, in order to be eligible for president you have to be a natural born citizen. He has refused to provide proof.”

“I’m not sure he’s even president of the United States,” Keyes continued, “neither are many of our military people now who are now going to court to ask the question, ‘Do we have to obey a man who is not qualified under the constitution?’ We are in the midst of the greatest crisis this nation has ever seen, and if we don’t stop laughing about it and deal with it, we’re going to find ourselves in the midst of chaos, confusion and civil war.”

Keyes, who stated he refuses even to refer to Obama as president, labeled the man in the Oval Office as “somebody who is kind of an alleged usurper, who is alleged to be someone who is occupying that office without constitutional warrant to do so.”

Keyes’ comments included harsh criticism of Obama’s policies on immigration, abortion, and the mortgage crisis.

He concluded the interview by railing against the president’s push for hundreds of billions of dollars in government economic stimulus spending.

“We are claiming that a bankrupt government can save a bankrupt banking system”, Keyes said.

 


Obama-messiah’s old grudge against the Brits shows his vengeful nature

February 17, 2009

So now the Obama-messiah has given our British cousins a slap in the face by unceremoniously returning a bust of Winston Churchill the Brits lent us after 9-11 as a show of support.

 

You see, Churchill led Britain during the dark days of WWII when German bombers were reducing London and other British cities to rubble, much as the Islamic terrorists did to our Twin Towers and Pentagon on 9-11. 

 

Churchill’s staunch “Never say die!” attitude helped buoy the spirits of the British people, encouraging them and giving them hope. 

 

So the Brits lent us the Churchill bust after 9-11, hoping it would help buoy our spirits, encourage us and give us hope.

 

But Obama-messiah won’t have it.  Nope.  Not at all.  And why not?  Because back when Kenya – Obama’s father’s country of origin — was a British colony, British Prime Minister Churchill was forced to send in British troops to suppress the Mau Mau rebellion.  And Obama’s anti-British grandfather was supposedly mistreated by British colonists at that time.

 

In other words, Obama returned the Churchill bust because of a personal grudge he holds against the British for an event that took place…get this…in 1952.

 

You can always tell a die-hard liberal by how long they hold on to their hidden inner grudges and hatreds. 

 

They preach “change,” and “peace,” and “love,” and “brotherhood,” and even “forgiveness.”  But every damned one of them holds onto a belly full of grudges against a cornucopia of people and classes and races, for things that happened 10, or 20, or even 30 or 40 years ago.  Or in Obama-messiah’s case, even longer.

 

This is the result of their sick victim-mentality working on their hyper-sensitive inner psyche, day-in and day-out. 

 

No matter how good life gets for them, it is never good enough.  In fact, the better their lives get the further back in the past they need dwell in order to find reasons to hang on to their hatred and anger and bitterness and resentment against you.

 

Liberals like the Obama-messiah are the worst form of psychopathic predators, because they put on such a caring public face in the here and now in order to suck you in, while they simultaneously wallow so far back into the distant past looking for new reasons to hate you that you’d stand in stunned amazement if you knew the true extent of it.

 

What’s more, if they can figure out a way to destroy you over the perceived past injustices they so tenaciously search out and cling to, so much the better.

 

Obama-messiah’s childish public “diss” of the Winston Churchill statue demonstrates his raging egotistical self-righteousness, which is probably born of his over-sensitive reactions to anyone who ever laughed at him for stuttering as a child. 

 

Here’s Obama’s entire legacy in a nutshell:  “Whitey laughed at me.  I hate whitey.”

 

What a immature dill-hole.  This is going to be the scariest presidency in U.S. history, because it is basically about revenge, disguised as social and economic “justice.”

Barack Obama sends bust of Winston Churchill on its way back to Britain

Barack Obama has sent Sir Winston Churchill packing and pulse rates soaring among anxious British diplomats.

A bust of the former prime minister once voted the greatest Briton in history, which was loaned to George W Bush from the Government’s art collection after the September 11 attacks, has now been formally handed back.

 

The bronze by Sir Jacob Epstein, worth hundreds of thousands of pounds if it were ever sold on the open market, enjoyed pride of place in the Oval Office during President Bush’s tenure.

 

But when British officials offered to let Mr Obama to hang onto the bust for a further four years, the White House said: “Thanks, but no thanks.”

 

Diplomats were at first reluctant to discuss the whereabouts of the Churchill bronze, after its ejection from the seat of American power. But the British Embassy in Washington has now confirmed that it sits in the palatial residence of ambassador Sir Nigel Sheinwald, just down the road from Vice President Joe Biden’s official residence. It is not clear whether the ambassador plans to keep it in Washington or send it back to London.

 

American politicians have made quoting Churchill, whose mother was American, something of an art form, but not Mr Obama, who prefers to cite the words and works of his hero Abraham Lincoln. Indeed a bust of Mr Lincoln now sits in the Oval Office where Epstein’s Churchill once ruled the roost.

 

Churchill has less happy connotations for Mr Obama than those American politicians who celebrate his wartime leadership. It was during Churchill’s second premiership that Britain suppressed Kenya’s Mau Mau rebellion. Among Kenyans allegedly tortured by the colonial regime included one Hussein Onyango Obama, the President’s grandfather.

 

The rejection of the bust has left some British officials nervously reading the runes to see how much influence the UK can wield with the new regime in Washington.

 

Now it is likely that Gordon Brown will offer a alternative symbol of Anglo-American fealty when he visits Washington to meet Mr Obama for the first time since he became President. Diplomats are still working to finalise a date for the visit which is expected in the final week of this month or early in March.

 

One suggestion, given Mr Obama’s interest in the Lincoln era, is that Mr Brown should offer an artifact relating to the career of John Bright, the 19th Century MP and political reformer who became the most prominent British supporter of Lincoln’s Union forces during the American Civil War.

 

A British Embassy spokesman said: “The bust of Sir Winston Churchill by Sir Jacob Epstein was uniquely lent to a foreign head of state, President George W Bush, from the Government Art Collection in the wake of 9/11 as a signal of the strong transatlantic relationship.

 

“It was lent for the first term of office of President Bush. When the President was elected for his second and final term, the loan was extended until January 2009.

 

“The new President has decided not to continue this loan and the bust has now been returned. It is on display at the Ambassador’s Residence.”
