2010...Happy New Year?...ONLY IF AMERICAN PATRIOTS UNITE!...

America must fight against the unholy Trinity that threatens to destroy us

The Revolution is on in 2010

By Dr. Laurie Roth Friday, January 1, 2010

Happy New Year everyone! This year brings us huge challenges but we are Americans and I’m not sorry for that, I’m humbled and proud. We can reinstate the real vision of who we are, call upon the real God for help and stand up for the confrontation and battles to come. We can survive and we will heal up. We are Americans not yesterday’s news. We are still the light of freedom on a hill. We need a new light bulb, Not a new light!

First weapon used against us in the unholy Trinity

Huge Government controls (communism) cloaked in the cover and contrived neediness of environmentalism/climate change and global warming: Prepare for the manipulated battles this coming year with Cap and Trade from this President and congress. Most of us have looked for some time at the real science and observed the lack of and destroyed data. Thousands of real scientists have stated on record, even signing petitions verifying the complete fraud of global warming and its related science. We know it is false and just a pathetic excuse to seize control of us. We must track these efforts and have a zero tolerance policy for these efforts.

The other Government control battle in our face the next few months is the communist and anti constitutional health care bill congress and this President are planning to cram down our parched throats.

Second weapon used against us: Radical Islam

Islam has always wanted control of the world. Financed and radical groups since the 1920s have taught, preached and pursued a worldwide Caliphate of control. Their taught and known methods of doing this include silent and violent jihad world wide. The fundamentalists study and know our sensitive, our legal loopholes and ways to intimidate and scare us. Only on Christmas we saw the latest horror show on flight 253 by a wanna be Islamic martyr from Nigeria. It was a miracle the plane didn’t blow up.

The organized Islamic terrorist groups are like body parts of the mother alien and yes I’m talking about the classic horror show! They pursue the same thing. Identify and exterminate infidels and infiltrate and control systems of leadership and Government structures. They continuously cry “victim” when focused on. The law suits and name calling are bread and butter for them. They are still nevertheless the enemy and we have mental illness and are classified Islamaphobes for noticing.

Third weapon used against us: Running away from God

We are the only country in the world based on a unique foundation of Judeo/Christian principles and founding documents . The significance of this is not merely Religious and Christian but has provided the only real and lasting mechanism available to model, keep and preserve freedom in the world. Did you hear me Obama? We aren’t just a light on a hill for freedom but still the only real hope for freedom and achievement in the whole world. If America is destroyed and completely neutered as this administration and the UN wants……MILLIONS AROUND THE WORLD WILL STARVE, BE TORTURED AND DIE. Take that and chew on it a moment!

America has always been and continues to be in the crosshairs of Dictators, i.e. socialists, communists, terrorists and “other controllers” due to one major, systemic clash. We view freedom for each individual a pre ordained gift and right from God. They view freedom as a borrowed and assigned privilege from Government. The two ideologies clash to the point of bloody wars because the God’s are different and don’t mix.

Big Government lovers and those who wish to be Gods themselves have successfully pushed God out of our schools and stolen our religious expression and rights. They have made immoral and sexual, acting out the norm. Up with gay marriage and up with whatever feels good sexually regardless of the consequences.

Remember the 3 biggies we are battling in 2010

  • Socialist/communist take overs
  • Islamic radical attacks
  • Our moral meltdown

Don’t worry our attack plans are powerful

Mid Term elections

We must clean house with this Administration and congress. We have to make the mid term elections kick some total booty. So far so good. I predict conservatives will take back the House. The way things are going with early elections and trends watch out Senate. At the very least we will put a huge dent in the Senate as well. We can’t sit back, get cocky or brag. We will do this but we must find our voice, vote and get behind conservatives all over the place. Just focus.

Push for State Sovereignty and power

Rep. Matt Shea from Washington, my liberal state, has been working diligently with several other legislators from other states and have put forth a constitutional, legal and powerful plan to secure 10th amendment rights. I have written about this plan in previous articles and you can read all about it at

Conservatives have to get their act together

Republicans and other conservative groups must focus and find candidates that not only can compete and do well in debates and the media but who really do have integrity, a commitment to our constitution and courage to serve. Anyone can find a pretty person and great speaker. Every tyrant I can think of through out our last 100 years was a sensational PR wizard and speaker.

America must put a wall of protection against Fundamentalist Islam

It is high time America does more than ‘ review ’ homeland security and watch lists. We must boldly define the enemy as Fundamentalist Islam, taught here and throughout the world. Once we find the courage to declare publicly the truth about the enemy we must then decide vividly and in media to go after Islamic clerics, known Islamic training camps in the US, Islamic agencies that work against our country and Government, ID sleeper cells and their allies.

We must have focused airport screening requirements. Those flying in who are Muslim and/or coming in from any Muslim country must go through El/ Al type security screening, referencing and cross referencing before they are even allowed into our air space and into our airports.

If we and peace loving Muslims are to feel safe in America we must take the gloves off and not only have more air marshals on planes but have our own version of sleeper cells……officials dressed in civilian clothes dropping in and out of mosques and Islamic compounds across our country. There is zero excuse to allow even one mosque or Islamic center to exist in our country that teaches or preaches Jihad in any way. I say shut them down immediately or arrest those involved. How about both!

We must also profile Muslim connections and behavior more closely and without fear in our military. There have been way too many attacks by Muslims against other military since 9/11. See what politically correct sensitivity gets you? A big fat coffin!

We must find God again

There are many in this country who want to find God. The ACLU wants to find God alright so they can sue Him. I would love them to find God as well. That would be a great day in court!

Our country has become the beacon and hope for freedom and prosperity around the world mainly due to our Christian beliefs and values. It is fraudulent and a betrayal to achievement, hope and freedom to deny this. We must stand and fight vividly state by state for our freedom of speech, religion and expression.

We must demand a big NO to any fairness doctrines, restricting conservatives and religious people in media. No to redesigning our marriage laws by throwing God out and allowing gays, groups and animals to get married. No, to calling ongoing murder of children…abortion and a choice.

We all know in our hearts what is right and wrong. We all know what real freedom AND responsibility look like. We also have known and still know deep in our hearts who the real God is and what He wants from us.

2010 brings us many challenges but we can and will win as we confront and battle the push to Big Government, Islamic attack and moral downfall.

Let America be a bold and liberating light on a hill in 2010

Dr. Evil...

If you read this, you WILL forward it on.
You just won't be able to stop yourself.

The average age of the military man is 19 years.
He is a short haired, tight-muscled kid who,
Under normal circumstances is considered by
Society as half man, half boy. Not yet dry behind
The ears, not old enough to buy a beer, but old
Enough to die for his country. He never really
Cared much for work and he would rather wax
His own car than wash his father's, but he has
Never collected unemployment either.

He's a recent High School graduate; he was probably an average student, pursued some form of sport
Activities, drives a ten year old jalopy, and has a
Steady girlfriend that either broke up with him when
He left, or swears to be waiting when he returns from half a world away. He listens to rock and roll or hip-hop or rap or jazz or swing and a 155mm howitzer.

He is 10 or 15 pounds lighter now than when he
Was at home because he is working or fighting
From before dawn to well after dusk. He has
Trouble spelling, thus letter writing is a pain for him,
But he can field strip a rifle in 30 seconds and
Reassemble it in less time in the dark. He can recite
To you the nomenclature of a machine gun or grenade launcher and use either one effectively if he must.

He digs foxholes and latrines and can apply first aid like a professional..

He can march until he is told to stop,
Or stop until he is told to march.

He obeys orders instantly and without hesitation,
But he is not without spirit or individual dignity.
He is self-sufficient.

He has two sets of fatigues: he washes one and wears the other. He keeps his canteens full and his feet dry.

He sometimes forgets to brush his teeth, but never
To clean his rifle. He can cook his own meals, mend
His own clothes, and fix his own hurts.

If you're thirsty, he'll share his water with you; if you
Are hungry, his food. He'll even split his ammunition
With you in the midst of battle when you run low.

He has learned to use his hands like weapons
And weapons like they were his hands.

He can save your life - or take it, because that is his job.

He will often do twice the work of a civilian, draw half the pay, and still find ironic humor in it all.

He has seen more suffering and death than he should have in his short lifetime.

He has wept in public and in private, for friends who have fallen in combat and is unashamed..

He feels every note of the National Anthem
vibrate through his body while at rigid attention, while tempering the burning desire to 'square-away ' those around him who haven't bothered to stand, remove their hat, or even stop talking.
In an odd twist, day in and day out, far from home, he defends their right to be disrespectful.

Just as did his Father, Grandfather, and Great-grandfather, he is paying the price for our freedom.. Beardless or not, he is not a boy. He is the American Fighting Man that has kept this country free for over 200 years.

He has asked nothing in return, except
Our friendship and understanding.
Remember him, always, for he has earned our respect and admiration with his blood.

And now we even have women over there in danger, doing their part in this tradition of going to War when our nation calls us to do so.

As you go to bed tonight, remember this shot. . ..

A short lull, a little shade and a picture of
Loved ones in their helmets.

Prayer wheel for our military... Please don't
Break it Please send this on after a short prayer.

Prayer Wheel

'Lord, hold our troops in your loving hands..
Protect them as they protect us.
Bless them and their families for the selfless acts they perform for us in our time of need. Amen.'

When you receive this, please stop for a moment and say a prayer for our ground troops in Afghanistan , sailors on ships, and airmen in the air, and for those in Iraq , Afghanistan
and all foreign countries.

There is nothing attached...
This can be very powerful...

Of all the gifts you could give a US Soldier, Sailor, Coastguardsman, Marine, or Airman, prayer is the very best one.

I can't break this one, sorry.
Pass it on to everyone and pray.

Thanks for sending this to our attention John.


Book of the Decade: Nancy Pelosi’s, Going Rouge

Satire by John W. Lillpop

While the media and leftist pundits were preoccupied with trashing Governor Sarah Palin and her fabulously successful Going Rogue, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi actually produced the book of the decade.

Speaker’s Pelosi’s autobiography, appropriately titled Going Rouge, went largely unnoticed, which is why this columnist is proud to offer this review in order to promote fair and balanced thinking.

While Governor Palin’s book is a rehashing of mundane political experiences from the 2008 presidential campaign, Pelosi’s work is more intellectually stimulating.

This is so because Pelosi describes the economic, social, and physical challenges that the most powerful woman in America faces in her never-ending fight to clean a House cluttered with corruption by folks named Rangel, Jefferson, and Kennedy, to name but a few.

All with (D) next to their names, we should add.

Pelosi provides a fascinating, but heartbreaking, account of her daily regime which requires her to get out of bed at 5AM in order to complete her “rouge routine” which takes hours to complete.

All of which Pelosi attributes to stress brought on by the Culture of Corruption she inherited from Republicans in 2007.

While Going Rouge is billed as a non-partisan, non-political work, Pelosi does stray a bit when it comes to promoting the trillion dollar health care reform bill that recently passed the House.

According to Pelosi, all women have an inalienable, constitutional right to look as young as possible.

“Looking young is an essential part of the American Dream for women,” Pelosi contends in Fight Wrinkles, Not Foreign Wars, a controversial chapter in which the Speaker takes on President Obama and his Afghanistan war.

Pelosi contends that hundreds of billions of dollars are being wasted to kill innocent Muslims overseas.

She believes those monies should be diverted to providing “on-demand” rogue consultations for poor women, especially those who speak no English and are in America illegally.

Pelosi proudly admits that the health care reform bill passed by the House provides unlimited funds for botox and cosmetic surgery, although the provision is tucked away in an obscure part of the bill and in very, very small print.

Summary: A good read for those who enjoy the rants and raves of a mediocre mind devastated by botox poisoning.




Here's The Text Of An Email I Sent


I was watching Fox News two days ago (12/28) when one of the news anchors, Shannon Breem, was interviewing a very articulate, observant young man, who was a passenger on the Christmas day flight.

In the course of the interview he passed on an incident he witnessed,that hadn't been mentioned in any of the news accounts.

He said the Feds lined up all the baggage on the tarmac, and had a bomb sniffing dog go up and down the lined up baggage. When the dog got to a certain bag the dog sat down, which is the dog's training signal that he made a positive hit.

The observer said an agent went to the bag, got the bag tag ID, then found the owner. After a brief conversation, the now third suspect was cuffed and led away.

Until now we've heard about the bomber, the guy with the stomach ache, but no mention of the third guy that the bomb sniffing dog I.D.'ed.

Obama may have wanted to keep a lid on this, to make this look like a lesser event, rather than a multi-terrorist act so reminiscent of 9/11.



Obama Wee Weeing in His Pants- Unable To Blame Bush, For Worldwide Bow Down Appeasement Tour Failure---- Hiding The Truth Continues

Paul Joseph Watson & Kurt Nimmo
Wednesday, December 30, 2009

Flight 253 eyewitness Kurt Haskell has astoundingly revealed how the FBI are deliberately hiding the existence of a second man who was arrested following the Christmas Day plane bombing incident after bomb-sniffing dogs detected a possible second explosive device in his luggage.

The probability that there was a bomb in the man’s luggage was all but confirmed when the FBI moved the passengers to another location.

Appearing on The Alex Jones Show yesterday, Haskell related how after being allowed to disembark from the plane by officials, passengers were detained in customs with their carry-on luggage for six hours while they waited to be interrogated by the FBI.

Bomb sniffing dogs then detected a possible explosive device in the luggage of an Indian man around 30 years old before the man was arrested and led away to an interrogation room.

The probability that there was a bomb in the man’s luggage was all but confirmed when the FBI moved the passengers to another location. “You’re being moved,” the FBI told them, “it is not safe here. I’m sure you all saw what happened and can read between the lines and why you’re being moved.”

The identity of the second man has not been discussed by authorities or the media and Haskell’s description of his own interview with the FBI suggests that the feds are deliberately trying to bury the notion that the bomber had one or more accomplices.

The FBI was not pleased with Haskell when they conducted a follow-up interview yesterday in Michigan. They showed him close-up photographs of various people, including Mutallab, the accused bomber. “They kind of tried to trick me,” Haskell explained. The agents tried to pass off two photos of Mutallab as different people. Kurt asked the agents if they were attempting to impeach his story and smear him.

The Indian man was not included in the photographs. Neither was another Indian man who Haskell told the media had helped the bomber board the plane despite the fact that he had no passport. The sharp dressed Indian lied about the bomber’s circumstances, claiming he was a Sudanese refugee.

Haskell asked them why he was not shown a full body shot of the suspect. Haskell was eight rows back from the suspect. The FBI agents did not answer and were displeased with the question. He also asked the FBI agents if it would be more appropriate to bring the surveillance video from the Amsterdam airport instead of still photos. “I don’t think they liked that comment from me,” Haskell added. The FBI said they did not have the videotape. They also made a point to tell Haskell they were asking the questions and not him.

The agents showed Haskell a photograph of the man flagged by the bomb-sniffing dog and taken into custody in customs. “Isn’t this the man who had the bomb in his carry-on bag that you arrested in customs who you refuse to admit exists?” Haskell asked the agents. “They really didn’t like that comment from me and had no comment back to me but I said it sure looks like the man you refuse to admit exists.”

There has also been no official explanation as to the identity of another mysterious man seen calmly filming the entire flight, including the botched bombing attempt, with a video camera.

Haskell described the FBI’s handling of the aftermath of the incident as “a complete embarrassment, a total disorganizational mess that actually put us in more jeopardy than we were already in.”

Passengers were told to remain seated in the aircraft for 20 minutes after landing despite the fact security did not know at that point if there was an explosive on the plane or if the fire started by the suspect Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab while on descent to the airport had spread under the floor in the cabin or to the fuel tanks in the wings.

Obama's Hawaiian Get Well Wish To Limbaugh

Obama’s Backdoor Tax Increase (Letting the Bush Tax Cuts Expire)
Originally published 2009 February 23

by Mr Pink Eyes

I hope that you didn’t make too many plans with that thirteen dollar tax break that you are going to receive under the stimulus package. Because you are going to need your thirteen dollar, which will fall to eight dollar, tax break to help pay for the new tax increase that you are going to receive next year.

It was nice of Obama to make the symbolic gesture of cutting taxes on the middle class right before his backdoor tax increase cancels that tax break out. You may be wondering what this backdoor tax increase that I am talking about is all about.

It’s simple, President Obama is going to let the Bush tax cuts expire. These taxes are set to expire in 2010. Contrary to the spin from the Obama administration the Bush tax cuts were not just on the rich. When these tax cuts expire every American taxpayer will receive a tax increase negating his thrifty thirteen dollar tax cut.

Part of the discussion is sure to include the impending tax increases set to hit every American taxpayer when the Bush tax cuts expire in 2010, unless Congress acts to extend them. During the presidential campaign, then-Sen. Barack Obama pledged to repeal the tax cuts.

He is not going to repeal them because then people would see it for what it is, Obama raising their taxes. Instead he will let them expire under the cover of night. It won’t be he who raises taxes but just the expiration of another president’s tax cuts. But it is important to remember what this arrogant man said about the American taxpayer in regards to the Bush tax cuts when he was running for president.

The Bush tax cuts – people didn’t need them, and they weren’t even asking for them, and that’s why they need to be less, so that we can pay for universal health care and other initiatives

He said that we didn’t need them and that we didn’t want them. Why would we want the money that we worked hard for? How arrogant is a statement like that? How can he sit there and say that we don’t need extra money? Money that we earned. He truly believes that he can spend our money better than we can.

But there is another secret buried in the expiration of the Bush tax cuts and it is a secret that the press will not report and it is a secret that Obama will never let out. The Bush tax cuts have been portrayed as tax cuts that were only for the rich but when these tax cuts expires it will not be the rich that is hurt the most. It won’t even be the middle class that is hurt the most. When President Obama lets the tax cut expire the poorest Americans will suffer the largest tax increase of all.

Every income tax bracket will rise, with the lowest tax bracket experiencing the largest increase – jumping from 10 percent to 15 percent of income.

The people in the lowest tax bracket will have their taxes increased by five percent. The largest increase of all tax brackets. Yet it is Obama who claims that he is a man of the people. He claims that it is he who will protect middle class Americans.

The great lie about the Bush tax cuts has been repeated so often that now people believe it is true. People believe that only the rich got tax cuts under the former president. Every American got tax relief in the Bush tax cuts and when Obama lets those cuts expire it will amount to a backdoor tax on all Americans. And the hardest hit will be the people who can least afford it.

Took hundreds of billions of dollars in taxpayer money, and directed them to his donors on Wall Street, in the unions and the insurance industry

Obama’s Only Real Accomplishment

By Daniel Greenfield Thursday, December 31, 2009

Let’s get it straight, behind all the hubbub and noise, the international trips and summits, the TV specials and constant addresses to the nation and any other nation that would let him in, the huge spending plans and the photoshoots—Barack Hussein Obama has accomplished only one thing in his first year in office.

Obama’s only real accomplishment is that he took hundreds of billions of dollars in taxpayer money, and directed them to his donors on Wall Street, in the unions and the insurance industry. Barry Hussein took in nearly 15 million dollars in donations from securities and investments companies, and his first priority was to pay it back with a massive bailout that has exploded the deficit.

As the number one recipient of funds from securities and investments companies, Obama made sure they were paid off first. In exchange for a mere 14 million dollars, the industry received as much as a hundred thousand times that much from the government. And we aren’t done yet. And that is even without counting Cap and Trade, a plan set to enrich certain key Wall Street backers of Obama and the Democratic party, at the expense of the last remaining shreds of America’s manufacturing sector.

And then there were the unions. Not only did Obama keep the UAW around through the effective bailout and takeover of GM and Chrysler, but his next priority was delivering the SEIU’s health care plan. And while the SEIU appears to have lost out on the public option, unlike the AFL-CIO which has turned on the bill, SEIU President Andrew Stern is still expressing his support for Obama.

But while SEIU may not have gotten the government health care holiday they wanted, the insurance industry, which donated millions to Obama, got a bill which forces every American to buy insurance from them, or be fined and jailed. It’s not quite marching customers over to them at gunpoint, but it’s the next best thing.

Obama’s big donors are throwing extra large parties to celebrate their windfall

While ordinary voters are complaining that they got screwed by Obama, his big donors are throwing extra large parties to celebrate their windfall. While 2009 has been a terrible year for most Americans, insurance company stocks are rising and Wall Street is anticipating a chance to nickel and dime every American through Cap and Trade.

And that is the simple and ugly truth behind Obama’s first term. Ignore the empty speeches and the even more meaningless summits. Behind the facade is the same stale old brand of Chicago politics, if you want something you gotta pay for it. If you want a street cleaning contract, then you better pay. And once you pay, the city will pay you twice the cost, even if none of the streets are ever clean. If you want to supply safety gear for the fire department, money better change hands. And then it doesn’t matter if the gear works or how much you overcharge for it.

But at the national level, it isn’t about municipal services or a state contract here and there, the kind of corruption that is bankrupting cities and states all across America. It’s about a truly grand level of corruption, because the budget at Obama’s disposal is virtually infinite. The money may not be there, but as long as the Chinese keep lending, Barry Hussein and his staff will keep on spending. Because when the bill comes due, they know they won’t be there.

Obama has no personal investment in America. It’s a resource to him like everything else. And when a con artist gets into a bank vault, he steals it clean, and then moves on. Unless he can be made dictator for life, Obama doesn’t care much what happens after he’s out of office. And if he is made dictator for life, that just means more wealth redistribution. The Chicago way is to treat taxes as a way to pay back favors and set yourself up for life. That mixture of left wing radicalism and organized crime that defines Obama’s political background has no room in it for any kind of fiscal responsibility.

War on Terror and Afghan surge

Once in office, Barry Hussein could barely be bothered to care about the War on Terror, only announcing an Afghan surge after he had been shamed into it. His international trips accomplished nothing except to give Michelle Obama a chance to pick up more expensive and ugly souvenirs. Abusive to allies and slavish to enemies, Obama’s foreign adventures impressed no one at all and accomplished even less.

Domestic security naturally went by the wayside. Obama’s tossed wreath at Ground Zero demonstrated how well he had absorbed the contemptuous attitude of his mentor, Jeremiah “God Damn America” Wright. Neither a New Yorker nor an American, terrorism was nothing to Obama, except a chance to recite a homily about the virtues of Islam. The mosques of Mecca and the Madrassas of Asia had far more emotional resonance for Obama than the Twin Towers.

His Homeland Security Chief, Janet Napolitano, quickly reverted back to Janet Reno’s approach to domestic security with alarmist rhetoric about the dangers of right wing extremism. Meanwhile Reno’s own second in command, Attorney General Eric Holder hardly bothered to hide his sympathy for the terrorists. And so the 3AM phone call to Obama never came. Instead a passenger subdued the latest Al Queda terrorist, while Obama drowsed peacefully in his White House bed, visions of spending bills dancing in his head.

Now just as it had been with Afghanistan a few months back, Obama has been caught by surprise as an issue that he had demonstrated his unconcern for is coming back to bite him on the #####. Naturally the reflexive Chicago tactic is to blame it on the Republicans. The problem is that the nameplate says Barack H. Obama, not George W. Bush. And by now it’s clear even to Obama’s supporters, that the man will go on blaming Bush even after 8 years in office, without taking responsibility for the consequences of his own policies.

Creating jobs was an inside joke between Obama and his donors, where the punchline was “Green Jobs”

But Obama isn’t stupid or incompetent. He proved quite capable of obsessively pursuing and shoving through legislation on the issues he cared about. Of course the legislation he cared about was passing kickbacks to his donors and enacting socialism for America. National security wasn’t on the list. Defending America wasn’t even gifted with a single checkmark. Creating jobs was an inside joke between Obama and his donors, where the punchline was “Green Jobs”.

When Cheney calls out Obama for abandoning national defense and the War on Terror, the White House has no response except to issue sanctimonious statements bemoaning finger pointing. Which is par for the course when the fingers are being pointed at you. But Obama is not a big believer in Truman’s aphorism. If Harry’s desk said, “The Buck Stops Here”, Obama’s desk says, “The Bucks Are Spent Here”.

Forget national security. Obama’s key interests are “reform” plans that benefit him personally. Next up will either be Cap and Trade or legalizing enough illegal aliens to outweigh all the out of work Americans just waiting for a chance to vote him out of office in 2012. (Lawyers after all formed the largest base of his contributors.) The buck doesn’t stop in the Oval Office anymore. The moral compass does.

White House Visitors Log: ACORN CEO Bertha Lewis In Obama Residence Week Before Sting Videos Launched

by Publius

This afternoon, on arguably one of the slower news day of the year, the Obama White House released another document dump of “visitor records.” According to the White House, today’s batch total more than 25,000 records, covering meetings between September 16-September 30th.


You can scroll through the list of records on the White House site OR you can download the raw data. Interestingly, the full download uncovers almost 30,000 records, including many from outside the mid-September time-frame detailed on the White House site. In other words, only the records from the specific two week time period are viewable on the White House site. Many other visitor records were released today…they are just much harder to find.

Like, for example, the visitor records for Bertha Lewis.

According to the visitor logs, on September 2nd Bertha E. Lewis made an appointment on to visit the White House on September 5th at 12:30. (We usually need to plan further ahead to get our hair cut.) On the evening of the 4th, that appointment was cancelled so Bertha could move her appointment earlier, to 10am.

And it doesn’t seem to have actually been a work visit, as her appointment indicates she was visiting the Residence within the White House. Also, September 5th was a Saturday. Nice.

In addition, the record notes that she was to receive a STAFF TOUR, which are different-and more special-than the regular Group Tours available to others.

Ms. Lewis doesn’t seem to have returned to the White House after this visit. Of course, just 5 days after this visit, James O’Keefe would release the first video of his undercover journalism on the systemic corruption within ACORN.

After the firestorm that erupted from O’Keefe’s reporting, President Obama was asked by Fox News for his opinion on the scandal. Despite long-standing ties to ACORN, Obama acted almost as if he’d never heard of the group.

Of course, at that point, it had been…several…days…since ACORN’s CEO was in the Residence at the White House. Who can keep up?

Of course, it is possible that this isn’t ACORN’s Bertha Lewis. After a previous dump of visitor records listed the name, Jeremiah Wright, the White House said, ‘oh, that was a different Jeremiah Wright.’ The media, of course, said, ‘okay,’ and never followed up. So, maybe the Bertha Lewis listed here isn’t the CEO of ACORN. Just another Bertha Lewis who gets special weekend access to the White House Residence, complete with an extra-special staff tour. Sure, possible, but we’d love to see a bookie’s odds on that.

Recommend? (36) Hundreds of al-Qaeda militants are planning terror attacks from Yemen, the country’s Foreign Minister said today.

Abu Bakr al-Qirbi appealed for more help from the international community to help to train and equip counter-terrorist forces.

His plea came after an al-Qaeda group based in Yemen claimed responsibility for the failed Christmas Day airliner bomb plot.

Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, alleged to be behind the attempt to blow up an American-bound aircraft, spent time in Yemen with al-Qaeda and was in the country only days before the failed attack.

IN PICTURES: Detroit air attack
Dr al-Qirbi said: “Of course there are a number of al-Qaeda operatives in Yemen and some of their leaders. We realise this danger.

“They may actually plan attacks like the one we have just had in Detroit. There are maybe hundreds of them — 200, 300.”

Dr al-Qirbi said it was the “responsibility” of countries with strong intelligence capabilities to warn states such as Yemen about the movements of terror suspects.

The United States, Britain and the European Union could do a lot to improve Yemen’s response to militants on its own soil, he added.

“We have to work in a very joint fashion in partnership to combat terrorism,” he said. “If we do, the problem will be brought under control.

“There is support, but I must say it is inadequate. We need more training, we have to expand our counter-terrorism units and provide them with equipment and transportation like helicopters.”

Mr Abdulmutallab is said to have told US agents that there were more people “just like him” ready to carry out attacks.

An al-Qaeda group based in Yemen claimed responsibility yesterday for the failed attempt to bring down Northwest Airlines Flight 253 over Detroit as US President Barack Obama pledged to hunt down the plotters.

Photographs apparently showing the underpants worn by alleged bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab and willed with explosives were broadcast today by ABC News.

The American government pictures show the singed underwear with a six-inch packet of a high explosive called PETN sewn into the crotch, the US network reported.

Mr Abdulmutallab was reported to be carrying about 80g of PETN, more than one-and-a-half times the amount carried by Richard Reid, the “shoe bomber”, in 2001 and enough to blow a hole in the side of an aircraft.

Mr Abdulmutallab’s former tutors at University College London, where he was a student between 2005 and 2008, described him as “well-mannered, quietly spoken, polite and able” and said that he never gave any cause for concern. He was president of the institution’s Islamic society between 2006 and 2007.

Nigerian-born Mr Abdulmutallab is being held at a federal prison in Michigan on a charge of trying to destroy an aircraft.

He apparently wrote of his loneliness and struggle between liberalism and Islamic extremism in a series of postings on Facebook and in Islamic chatrooms, The Washington Post reported today.

In January 2005, when he was attending boarding school, he wrote: “I have no one to speak too. No one to consult, no one to support me and I feel depressed and lonely. I do not know what to do. And then I think this loneliness leads me to other problems.”

Alan Johnson, the Home Secretary, said it was unlikely that Mr Abdulmutallab acted alone and revealed that he was banned from entering Britain and placed on a “watch list” this year.

Mr Johnson said that the alleged terrorist was refused a new visa and had been monitored since May after applying for a bogus course.

The USURPER'S PLAN: Cripple - and - Destroy America...

Taxes in the form of unconstitutional but, mandatory “health” insurance payments

Obama Death Plan: Abortions, New Taxes and Death Panels to remain

By Sher Zieve Wednesday, December 30, 2009

It is no longer a secret that Obama & Co’s ObamaCare Death Plan is yet another way to steal money from the American people and reduce the overall population of the former United States of America.

Taxes in the form of unconstitutional but, mandatory “health” insurance payments are demanded by the dictator-in-chief and his supplicant Congressional minions. The hammer and sickle will come down upon the necks (or other body parts) of all who refuse to obey Tyrant Obama and fines, penalties and/or prison time await any and all dissenters.

The ObamaCare Death Panels remain in both the Senate and House versions of Obama’s and the Congressional Democrats’ Death Plan. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) has gone so far as to write language into the Marxist-Democrat Senate version of the Obama Death Plan that makes it illegal to repeal their death panels. Paid-for-out-of-our-pockets abortions are also included in the Senate version, to the point that the Marxist House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has said she will support the Senate’s rendering.

Note: Pelosi even had the gall to mock God when she applauded the massive abortion death-funding proposed by the Senate and said “doesn’t have a public option, doesn’t expand Medicare for the 55 to 64 group, and has abortion language that is completely different from the House—thank God!” Memo to Death-Plan Nan—God does not support infanticide and, in fact, commands just the opposite. Have you read the Holy Bible, lately, or are you still in the process of rewriting it?

As I’ve written in the past, the ObamaCare Death Plan will enslave the American people and force them to pay even more of their disappearing dollars to the ObamaGov. Note: This will help Obama pay for his upcoming additional $4,000/day vacations on America’s tab—while Americans wonder where their next meal is coming from or whether or not they will ever again have paychecks.

But, Obama advises that he WILL be satisfied! His ObamaCare Death Plan provides both a Stalinistic totalitarian platform and its implementation. We-the-People must be controlled, in order for the dictator, his ObamaCzars and minions to take over the country and rule it into perpetuity—and bankruptcy. All too many of the American people simply refuse to wake up or are ignoring warnings based upon truth and logic. However, as these are liberals and leftists, I suspect their deep and uncaring slumber may be drug-induced.

With the passage of Obama’s Death Plan for the American people, our choices in the matter of our own bodies will be gone. The next step for the Marxists/Maoists ruling the USA will be Cap & Trade, which will permanently cripple—and destroy—the country.

Still feeling peaceful? Are you?

A Recovering Obot Speaks Out!...

I worked my fanny off getting Obama elected since his speech at the DNC in 2004. What a mark I was but I have thankfully snapped out of it. I spent way too much money and time but…I will now spend more money and more time to help usher him out beginning with the dispatch of our local representatives which includes Republicans as well and working up to 2012. Our Democratic representatives who are up for re-election in 2010 really have no chance. Especially those representatives who merely voiced two words. Yes to the stimulus. Yes to HR3950. I get it now especially how the healthcare bill came down.

This has split my immediate family, extended family and friends as this Holiday Season thus far has been miserable and made miserable by the constant discussion of Obama’s leadership. They were right and those few of us left were very, very wrong.

I will redeem myself, count on it.


Clinton & Palin...most Admired Women...

At the end of the 21st century's first decade, Americans have decided on the women they admire the most -- and their picks might surprise some.

One is a woman who once lived in the White House -- Hillary Rodham Clinton. And the other is a woman suspected of harboring ambitions of living there someday -- Sarah Palin.

A Democrat and a Republican. A former senator and a former governor. Two polarizing politicians, both moms, both bestselling authors, both who lost their bids for one of the nation's top elected offices last year.

Are American voters dropping a hint here?

According to a new survey just released by USA Today and the Gallup Poll, the 62-year-old Clinton barely beat out the 45-year-old Palin as the most admired female -- 16% to 15% in a poll of 1,025 adult Americans.

WAIT!!!!! What's to admire about Clinton? She's an Obama lackey, dishonest and ineffective as Secretary of State AND she supports Obama / Hitlercare. She needs to be turfed out along with all the other corrupt politicians and socialists in Washington!


THE USURPER: A cynic wrapped in a hypocrite inside a bully.

December 28, 2009 from American Thinker

Obama's Image: What a Difference a Year Makes

By Ed Lasky
Almost a year has passed since January 20, 2009 -- when the waters of the ocean no longer rose and America began to heal from the depredations of Republicans. Barack Obama has been our president for that long, and the people have started to wise up.

The light that shines on Barack Obama as president has reflected back an image that bears very little similarity to the iconic visage that floated above us all in 2008. Why has Barack Obama betrayed so many allies, broken so many promises, thrown so many pledges and people under the bus?

One simple aphorism (paraphrasing Winston Churchill) can explain it all. Barack Obama is no longer a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma. Much about his past remains murky, but faced with the need to govern, he has given the American people plenty of evidence of his nature...if only they will look.

Obama is a cynic wrapped in a hypocrite inside a bully.

This comes as a shock to many, who are dismayed to find that he is "just a politician," as Reverend Wright, Jr. (who knows him so well) called him back in 2008. But Wright was being all too kind and generous to his future former parishioner (Wright followed a long and ever-growing line of people trampled by Barack Obama's rise.)

But Barack Obama is far more than just a politician. We all swallow a lot from politicians; we know that many pander and narrowcast, changing their message to suit their audience. But Obama expressly campaigned as a man who would not do this. He was the candidate of hope and change -- he would bring a big broom to sweep clean the Augean Stables known as Washington, D.C. He called forth the better angels of our nature (hat tip: Honest Abe Lincoln, one of the truly honest politicians from Illinois) and tapped into a deep yearning for the rarest of the real things: an honest leader.

A cynic

Obama defined his campaign with high-sounding rhetoric that "[his] rival in this race is not other candidates, but cynicism." The line resonated and soon became his mantra.

He later asked us to fight cynicism and revealingly told us that cynics believe they are smarter than everyone else. To this it could be said that Obama knows what that is like.

Could there be anything more cynical than to look upon Americans as being too forgetful to remember all the broken promises Obama made?

These include -- but are not limited to -- a promise that there would be no health care mandates (there are); that he would take a scalpel to the budget and bring down the deficit (headed towards the stratosphere as he rewards his own special interest groups); and that he would end earmarks (his spending bills are polluted by them; he is, after all, a Chicago politician).

He promised to close Gitmo -- not a done deal, and like many deadlines he promised, no one is sure when or if this will happen.

He promised the end of partisanship, but he has stoked it to a roaring blaze with his refusal to work with Republicans. He promised to end our wars, but now he is sending more forces into Afghanistan.

He stated that he would fight the gay marriage ban, but instead he ended up supporting it, in effect, by defending the Defense of Marriage Act.

He promised the most transparent administration in history, but instead he imposes layers of secrecy and invokes executive powers to cloak his administration from scrutiny (e.g., his use of executive privilege to protect Desiree Rogers, his social secretary, from questioning regarding the WhiteHouseGate-crashers).

We were promised that if we passed the stimulus bill under Barack Obama's presidency, then the unemployment rate would drop below 8% by now -- and here we are, during Christmas season, cruising along at a solid 10% (17% if we include the underemployed and those who left the workforce because they saw no prospects of landing a job).

We were promised that the anti-Bush would restore respect for America around the world and bring international comity. Instead, he has alienated our allies and empowered our adversaries -- a dynamic that has brought all but zero benefits to America (very little cooperation in Afghanistan, on "climate change," or on Iran's nuclear program). While he may have snagged himself a Nobel Peace Prize, the leaders of the world are increasingly treating him, and America, with disrespect and contempt.

The betrayals are so breathtaking and widespread (all of his promises have an expiration date) that all one can surmise is that the ultimate cynic is the One who campaigned against cynicism.

We can sense that Obama is a cynic by referring back to his own definition: someone who thinks he is smarter than everyone else.

We have abundant evidence of this derisive attitude.
I think that I'm a better speechwriter than my speechwriters. I know more about policies on any particular issue than my policy directors. And I'll tell you right now that I'm gonna think I'm a better political director than my political director.
Obama had the ego to think he was better than the key experts playing roles in his victory: He is apparently smarter than his policy directors and political directors, and he's a better speechwriter to boot.

We know how Obama feels about small-town Americans: They are bitter yokels who cling to guns or religion or antipathy towards people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment. But he has additionally demeaned a wide range of other Americans (doctors, cops, Special Olympics contestants, and many more, as you can see via the Insulter-in-Chief). And how many of us are the "typical white person" he derided in the not-so-distant past? Patriots who wear flags on their lapels? They are among the great unwashed.

We also know how Obama feels about people living in suburbia. He has no use for those people in the gray flannel suits. He said, in an un-teleprompted remark: "I'm not interested in suburbs. The suburbs bore me."

As Barack Obama has intoned, words matter.

Yes, they do Mr. President, especially in the days of YouTube, Google, and the internet. These are the tools the common folk can tap to remember your promises -- and your breaking of them.

These are the videos we can watch instead of the redacted versions put out by your pals and accomplices in the media --those versions scrubbed clean of your malapropisms, mistakes, stammering, evasions, and most importantly, your broken promises. Only a cynic would think of us as being too forgetful or ignorant to recognize the Big Lie.

Only a certifiable cynic would consider the American people so unperceptive as to not recognize the wide gap between the image and the reality, the promises made and broken, the differences between the smiling visage on the Shepard Fairey posters (themselves a fraud -- how symbolic!) and the hectoring, finger-pointing, vengeful curmudgeon we now have in the Oval Office.

A hypocrite

The hypocrisy knows no bounds, either.

A hypocrite decries the role of money in politics and then breaks his promise to accept public financing for his presidential campaign (because he could see the money rolling in) while his challenger kept his promise to abide by the campaign law he himself created. Was there a certain degree of cynicism displayed there by Obama, knowing McCain was hoisted on his own petard?

A hypocrite preaches that he will bring us together as a people and heal our wounds when he wants our votes -- but after he wins, he practices the politics of polarization and declares that he wants not "to quell people's anger," but to channel it.

Only a hypocrite would campaign on a platform of bringing us together ("we are one people," "this was the moment -- this was the time -- when we came together to remake this great nation," "there is no red America, there is no blue America," etc.) and then stoke the very polarization that he promised would end in the Age of Obama. His guru, Saul Alinksy, would be happy that his Rules for Radicals has become the blueprint for how the president can run, and ruin, a great nation.

Only a hypocrite would engage in as many baldfaced lies as our president has over the past few years. The end of lobbyists? Balderdash. In fact, as a Politico headline noted, "Lobbyists are on pace for a record year."

And what is a lobbyist? What is the meaning of the term when Andy Stern, head of the Service Employees International Union, is such a frequent visitor to the White House that he might as well sublet some space in the Lincoln Bedroom? Does anyone think Andy Stern is there to talk about the weather? A lobbyist by any other name is still, in the end, a lobbyist.

Barack Obama has also countenanced the buying of votes (payoffs to states to get senators to sign on Harry Reid's health care reform bill) in the Senate to get ObamaCare passed.

Obama decried the politics of fear during the campaign and then employed the same as president -- as he did when he had the audacity to predict the "bankruptcy" of America should ObamaCare not pass. Or, before that, he augured the collapse of the economy should the stimulus bill not pass. When every bill becomes a do-or-die proposition, is that not playing the politics of fear?

Is it hypocritical to tout that tax dollars are not "monopoly money" and that we "can't continue to spend as if deficits don't have consequences" while engaging in irresponsible profligacy that would make Nero blanch? (Obama has a history of problems with his own credit standing, but now he is playing with our money.)

Does he think others are too stupid -- the belief that most defines a cynic -- to realize that his deficit-plagued budgets are a sure way to penury for us and our children and grandchildren?

Decrying fat cats while calling up a jet for a trip to Manhattan and a stroll down the Great White Way of Broadway? Taking jaunts to Copenhagen to try to snag the Olympics for his hometown pals in Chicago, who, no doubt, were hoping to snag some lucre? That's the Chicago Way. One could go on.

A bully

All this cynicism and hypocrisy is wrapped up and empowered by the other notable feature of Barack Obama: Our president is a bully.

Among the many examples: demeaning "fat cats" and telling Wall Street bankers that he is the only one standing between them and the pitchforks; telling a recalcitrant Democratic Congressman that they'd better toe the line because "we are keeping score, brother"; belittling allies, such as the Israelis, by telling them they need to be more self-reflective; trying to impose a left-wing lunatic dictator wanna-be on the innocent people of Honduras; dissing Eastern Europeans by not giving them a respectful warning that he was going to break a promise to them regarding missile bases in their nations; and forcing British Prime Minister Gordon Brown to grovel in a kitchen in order to have a few words with the President of the United States. (This treatment is attributable, speculates the Wall Street Journal, to some personal bad will between Great Britain and some Kenyan ancestors of Barack Obama. The man knows how to hold an ancestral grudge -- even if it means the rest of America suffers from slighting one of our formerly most treasured allies).

A bully is someone who can justify his actions by bragging that "I won." Whatever happened to the slogan "Yes we can"? Whatever happened to the "new kind of politics"? Well, they're so 2008.

A bully is someone who taunts, "If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun."

A bully is someone who runs roughshod over not only his opponents (politics can be a blood sport, after all), but also the Constitution -- as Obama has from almost day one of the One. Here are just a few examples of his inclination to ignore our most sacred document: czars exercising power without being approved by the Senate; violating the property clause by ignoring bankruptcy law -- as he did with the auto bailouts and attempted to do with mortgage "cram-down" plans; the chilling of free speech by threats against Fox News and by bringing back the threat of regulation affecting talk radio. Even health care reform has come under scrutiny for violating the Constitution.

There is a cliché in Washington: that all one needs to know about politics can be learned on the playground. But perhaps Obama's street-smart education was learned on the basketball court -- where height reigns (and there is no higher office in America), and where trash-talk is used to demoralize and defeat.

A cynic wrapped in a hypocrite inside a bully.

The Truth About the Health Care Bills
by Michael Connelly, Ret. Constitutional Attorney

Well, I have done it! I have read the entire text of proposed House Bill 3200: The Affordable Health Care Choices Act of 2009. I studied it with particular emphasis from my area of expertise, constitutional law. I was frankly concerned that parts of the proposed law that were being discussed might be unconstitutional. What I found was far worse than what I had heard or expected.

To begin with, much of what has been said about the law and its implications are, in fact, true, despite what the Democrats and the media are saying. The law does provide for rationing of health care, particularly where senior citizens and other classes of citizens are involved, free health care for illegal immigrants, free abortion services, and probably forced participation in abortions by members of the medical profession.

The Bill will also, eventually, force private insurance companies out of business, and put everyone into a government run system. All decisions about personal health care will ultimately be made by federal bureaucrats, and most of them will not be health care professionals. Hospital admissions, payments to physicians, and allocations of necessary medical devices will be strictly controlled by the government.

However, as scary as all of that is, it just scratches the surface. In fact, I have concluded that this legislation really has no intention of providing affordable health care choices. Instead it is a convenient cover for the most massive transfer of power to the Executive Branch of government that has ever occurred, or even been contemplated If this law or a similar one is adopted, major portions of the Constitution of the United States will effectively have been destroyed.

The first thing to go will be the masterfully crafted balance of power between the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches of the U.S. Government. The Congress will be transferring to the Obama Administration authority in a number of different areas over the lives of the American people, and the businesses they own.

The irony is that the Congress doesn't have any authority to legislate in most of those areas to begin with! I defy anyone to read the text of the U.S. Constitution and find any authority granted to the members of Congress to regulate health care.

This legislation also provides for access, by the appointees of the Obama administration, to all of your personal healthcare in direct violation of the specific provisions of the 4th Amendment to the Constitution information, your personal financial information, and the information of your employer, physician, and hospital. All of this is a protection against unreasonable searches and seizures. You can also forget about the right to privacy. That will have been legislated into oblivion regardless of what the 3rd and 4th Amendments may provide.

If you decide not to have healthcare insurance, or if you have private insurance that is not deemed acceptable to the Health Choices Administrator appointed by Obama, there will be a tax imposed on you. It is called a tax instead of a fine because of the intent to avoid application of the due process clause of the 5th Amendment. However, that doesn't work because since there is nothing in the law that allows you to contest, or appeal the imposition of the tax, it is definitely depriving everyone of property without the due process of law.

So, there are three of those pesky amendments (that the far left hate so much) out the original ten in the Bill of Rights, that are effectively nullified by this law It doesn't stop there though.

The 9th Amendment provides: "The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people;"

The 10th Amendment states: "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are preserved to the States respectively, or to the people." Under the provisions of this piece of Congressional handiwork neither the people nor the states are going to have any rights or powers at all in many areas that once were theirs' to control.

I could write many more pages about this legislation, but I think you get the idea. This is not about health care; it is about seizing power and limiting rights. Article 6 of the Constitution requires the members of both houses of Congress to "be bound by oath or affirmation to support the Constitution." If I was a member of Congress I would not be able to vote for this legislation or anything like it, without feeling I was violating that sacred oath or affirmation. If I voted for it anyway, I would hope the American people would hold me accountable.

For those who might doubt the nature of this threat, I suggest they consult the source, the US Constitution, and Bill of Rights. There you can see exactly what we are about to have taken from us.
