Obama’s Orwellian Address to Congress

AP – President Barack Obama addresses a joint session of Congress in the House Chamber of the Capitol in Washington,D.C.

JIM VANDEHEI and MIKE ALLEN are hereby awarded the 1st Creating Orwellian Worldview Award for outstanding reporting!

Although I, through this blog, am attempting to educate you on how to recognize Liberals and Democrats who are attempting to use language to change reality in America by legal, political and social coercion often I felt alone in this pursuit.

That may have changed! Vandehei and Allen of the Politico took time as the media to explain the Orwellian communications in the President’s Tuesday night’s address to Congress. In other words, they tell us just what Obama was really communicating. That of course, until now, would never have been done on the Obama fawning networks CBS, NBC, ABC, MSNBC, and Fox. (see story)

Obama’s nearly hour long message attempted to balance negative and positive messages while leaving all blame at the feet of President Bush and Republicans, thus allowing Obama to take up the mantle of problems that he has simply inherited due to no fault of Democrats or of his own. (see transcript)

Following are video excerpts of President Obama’s Orwellian coded rhetoric along with Vandehei’s and Allen’s translations of what the President really meant, which was published in their Politico Article entitled, “What Obama Really Meant” (see Video)

Follow is Vandehei and Allen’s article:

What Obama really meant


President Obama’s maiden speech to Congress was loaded with durable lines, many aimed with precision at specific audiences or political objectives. As is often the case, the most memorable lines were often written with subtlety and delicacy to keep the speech above petty politics and blame-casting.

(Note: Of course I disagree with what the authors stated here. I believe that the speech was written to give the appearance that the President is above petty politics and blame-casting when in actuality petty politics and blame-casting was exactly the speech’s intended purpose. A fact that the authors confirm that point in their very first critique --Alaphiah)

Here’s a translation of key passages:

“Now, if we’re honest with ourselves, we’ll admit that for too long we have not always met these responsibilities – as a government or as a people. I say this not to lay blame or look backwards.”

TRANSLATION: He said it precisely to lay blame right on top of George W. Bush. The entire speech was laced with shots, some more obvious than others, at the former administration. They were all harnessed to a single purpose: convince the public that every risk Obama takes or dollar he spends is to clean up the mess Bush either left behind or failed to address.

“It’s a plan that won’t help speculators or that neighbor down the street who bought a house he could never hope to afford but it will help millions of Americans who are struggling with declining home values.”

TRANSLATION: The essence of this message – “don’t listen to that blowhard Rick Santelli over at CNBC.” White House officials privately admit some reckless homeowners could benefit from their rescue package. But they want the public to see the housing rescue package as the best of many bad options for keeping property values from tanking further. They know they will lose the fight if the plan is seen as a sop to the undeserving.

“I know how unpopular it is to be seen as helping banks right now, especially when everyone is suffering in part from their bad decisions. I promise you — I get it.”

TRANSLATION: This was all about trying to prevent a populist backlash to the growing number of reckless Americans getting taxpayer bailouts. It was the chief aim of the speech. Again and again, Obama took shots at the risk-taking bankers, automakers and homebuyers. Obama wants to make sure the general public sees him as on their side – not on the side of undeserving folks who might get government money.

“You should also know that the money you've deposited in banks across the country is safe; your insurance is secure; you can rely on the continued operation of our financial system.”

TRANSLATION: This was Obama’s way of saying don’t take his recent doom and gloom language too darn seriously. Things are bad – but not devastatingly so. Bill Clinton said the president should be talking more optimistically about the country’s can-do spirit, and a big goal of the speech was to dial up the Obama version of hope. This was a start.

“History reminds us that at every moment of economic upheaval and transformation, this nation has responded with bold action and big ideas. In the midst of civil war, we laid railroad tracks from one coast to another that spurred commerce and industry.”

TRANSLATION: As Rahm Emanuel often says, never allow a good crisis to go to waste. Obama wants to use this historic downturn to enact historic policies. They are never cheap and require public buy-in to this White House’s go-big-or-go-home mentality. History always provides a nice backdrop for such experiments.

“So let there be no doubt: health care reform cannot wait, it must not wait, and it will not wait another year.”

TRANSLATION: Obama is doing health care reform this year, despite deficits and its high costs. There will be a lot of pressure - mainly from Republicans but also some centrist Democrats - to pay more attention to deficits after the recent spending spree. Obama will ignore them – and is in fact considering a push for near-universal coverage in the second half of this year.

“Let me be absolutely clear, because I know you’ll end up hearing some of the same claims that rolling back these tax breaks means a massive tax increase on the American people. If your family earns less than $250,000 a year – a quarter-million dollars a year -- you will not see your taxes increased a single dime. I repeat: not one single dime.”

TRANSLATION: Rich people will get a big fat tax increase to pay for health care and other programs – and Obama will set the terms of the political fight. That tax-hike line was straight from the campaign trail, repeated countless times for a reason. He knows he will soon find out if it was an effective approach (but probably not until next year when the tax hike will start to take effect).

“To relieve the strain on our forces, my budget increases the number of our soldiers and Marines. And to keep our sacred trust with those who serve, we will raise their pay, and give our veterans the expanded health care and benefits that they have earned.”

TRANSLATION: We may be packing up in Iraq , but we’re not wimps. Obama, while focused mostly on domestic policies these days, knows Republicans will never stop trying to paint Democrats as soft on security. Two ways Obama has projected strength, both on the campaign trail and as president, is to emphasize his plans to expand the military and to put more troops in Afghanistan .

“I know that it's easy to lose sight of this truth -- to become cynical and doubtful; consumed with the petty and the trivial.”

TRANSLATION: That would be you, Republicans, reporters or anyone else who diverts attention from the big issues by jumping into conventional political fights. This is an attempt to elevate himself as the first president of the 21st century and diminish critics as whining carpers. This worked magically on the campaign trail. The task gets harder when the cynics and critics are those outside of Washington concerned about the spending and bailouts.

“We are not quitters.”

TRANSLATION: This was the emotional moment of the night. You’d have to have a cold heart not to appreciate a young girl from a poor town telling the president “we’re not quitters.” The line also summons the spirit the White House thinks Congress and the public will need in the tough months ahead.

As I have said before and as I will continue to explain, absolutely nothing can be taken a face value with this administration. There are symbolic meanings and language employed with every speech, or event, or pronouncement which is meant to convey a different truth or as President Clinton was so fond of suggesting A third way.

Everything that President Obama and his seconds say should be filtered or translated as the above example. If not one day we could all wake up in some semi-Oceania state of control.

Thank you JIM VANDEHEI and MIKE ALLEN you are the 1st recipients of the Creating Orwellian Worldview award for pointing out our government’s and President Obama’s attempt to create an alternate Orwellian reality through words!

The Obama Constitutional Crisis is Here!

2nd Lt. Scott Easterling
"As an active-duty officer in the United States Army, I have grave concerns about the constitutional eligibility of Barack Hussein Obama to hold the office of president of the United States, [President Obama] has absolutely refused to provide to the American public his original birth certificate, as well as other documents which may prove or disprove his eligibility.

In fact, he has fought every attempt made by concerned citizens in their effort to force him to do so. "
–2nd Lt. Scott Easterling
Before the Democratic Convention in August of 2008 Democrat Attorney Phillip Berg warned his fellow Democrats not to nomination Sen. Barack Obama because of questions regarding his edibility. Berg even filed a suit to enjoin the DNC from allowing Obama run or receive the nomination, his reason? Berg stated that he feared that if Barack Obama were elected President of the United States there would ensue a Constitution crisis because Obama had not proved that the was eligible under the U.S. Constitution to be president.
The Constitution, Article 2, Section 1, states, "No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President."
Berg filed suit in the U.S. District Court of Pennsylvania where Obama failed to respond in time which legally deemed that Obama admitted Berg’s charges were in fact true.

But instead of the judge finding for Berg the judge mysteriously dismissed the case. (see story) and here

Subsequently Berg has filed several appeals with the U.S. Supreme court which has refused to get involved in perhaps the most important case in American history.

Regardless, no matter how the government attempts to shield for Obama this case is not going away. The people deserve to know if the Congress and the Supreme Court of the United States conspired to prevent the people from knowing the true status of their government.

If Barack Obama is a usurper then the whole U.S. government is illegitimate. The Courts are illegitimate for allowing a usurper to remain unchallenged on his way to becoming and finally obtaining the presidency when it was in their power to illegally order that Obama show proof. The Congress is illegitimate because they knew of this but no one, not one Congressman or Senator took up the issue for the American people. On the Contrary the Congress willingly accepted this illegitimacy. (see story)

And naturally the Executive branch is illegitimate meaning that none of Barack Obama’s appointments, Executive Orders or selections are legitimate. Not Vice President Joe Biden, not Obama’s Cabinet and not Obama status as Commander-in-Chief.

This brings us to 2nd Lt. Scott Easterling who states that his oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America impels him to insure that he is following legitimate orders from a bona fided Commander-in-Chief, the same oath, by the way, to defend the Constitution that President Obama took but couldn’t possibly keep if he took the office knowing that he is ineligible, which he certainty must have. (see story)
"My conviction is such that I am compelled to join Dr. Orly Taitz's lawsuit, as a plaintiff, against Mr. Obama. As a citizen, it pains me to do this, but as an officer, my sworn oath to support and defend our Constitution requires this action," –2nd Lt. Scott Easterling
As President Obama is ramping up the hostilities in Afghanistan and ordering upwards to 20,000 troops into battle. (see story)

Our troops deserve to know whether or not they are following orders from a legitimate president or an imposer, an usurper who has used the Courts and the Congress to stage the strangest political coup d'état in history. And that is the taking of the United States of America without one single shot, no this coup was accomplish purely and wholly on the ignorance of the American people.

Á la Harry Reid and John Murtha the Obama Stimulus is a Failure

Judged by his own standards, President Obama's $787 billion economic stimulus program is deeply disappointing. For weeks, Obama has described the economy in grim terms. "This is not your ordinary run-of-the-mill recession," he said at his Feb. 9 news conference. It's "the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression."

Given these dire warnings, you'd expect the stimulus package to focus almost exclusively on reviving the economy. It doesn't, and for that, Obama bears much of the blame.
So wrote Robert J. Samuelson of the Washington Post. The case for a huge stimulus Samuelson wrote, “Is to prevent a devastating downward economic spiral.” (see story)

Yet what President Obama has done according to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) is back load the Stimulus bill so that most of the spending occurs in 2011 or later to 2014. That’s during election years do I really have to explain why Democrats did this?

The CBO estimates that only a minuscule 3% of the money will be spent during 2009 and 2010 roughly $595 million dollars. Yet if you recall Obama said that we needed to rush and spend enough money immediately to advert impeding catastrophe possibilities. He said at his Feb. 9 news conference. It's "the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression."

But according to Samuelson Obama words are different than his actions. Hum, imagine that? Must be that deep thinking and nuance-thing that Democrats are so known for.

No it’s not, Samuelson diagnoses it as Obama’s politics are in conflict with and are compromising the economics of this country

This should have been a huge stimulus up front focused only to kick start the economy with good middle class jobs but what Obama has done, he has diluted the upfront power of the stimulus for political bragging rights in 2011 and 2014.

But what is even more devastating is what the money is being used for. According to Samuelson, [f]or starters, there's $8 billion for high-speed rail. "Everyone is saying this is [for] high-speed rail between Los Angeles and Las Vegas -- I don't know," says Ray Scheppach, executive director of the National Governors Association. Whatever's done, the design and construction will occupy many years. It's not a quick stimulus.

Then there's $20.8 billion for improved health information technology -- more electronic records and the like. Probably most people regard this as desirable, but here, too, changes occur slowly.

So what was up with all of that hurry up and now we’ve got to wait, didn’t Obama, the media and Democrats urge us all for the need too get this bill passed quickly? Yes they did.

But Samuelson writes that [b]ig projects take time. They're included in the stimulus because Obama and Democratic congressional leaders are using the legislation to advance many political priorities instead of just spurring the economy. Therefore the hurry was to get American people’s money before they knew what hit them.

Funny how Democrats always do that with any spending, remember how they attempted to load down President Bush funding of the war with their little pet pork projects, same thing! (see story)

Some politicians never learn. The purpose of the stimulus is to keep declines in one part of the economy from dragging down other sectors but to the Democrats it was just another bill to add their special little projects. Apparently no bill is too important to forego an opportunity for Democrats to add pork to it.

Finally if the economic problem is anywhere as sever as President Obama describes his stimulus package is not enough large enough to do the job. Samuelson believes that it only offers modest relief. While what it does do is centralize more power in Washington for Obama and Democrats.

Samuelson argues that no one knows how the results will bear out, but in any case it is Samuelson’s opinion that President Obama and Democrats allowed partisan politics to ran roughshod over pragmatic economic policy that this country needed in our time of crisis.

One must wonder why Obama has been so dire on the economy, so much so, that even past president Bill Clinton has asked him to lighten up. I’m thinking that Democrats know that what they’ve done will eventually fail. The Stimulus package was a failure from the start because it wasn’t designed to aid the U.S. economy. What it’s really designed to do is stimulate the Democrat election chances for 2011 and 2014.

If the economy is destroyed because of this blatant and unnecessary Democrat partisanship it’s going to take a whole lot of sweeping Democrats out of office to clean up this mess!

I say let’s get started at the very first opportunity! For Obama ONE AND DONE!
And for the midterm election in 2011 sweep corrupt and partisan Democrats out!

The President has no Clothes

Protestors line up for President Barack Obama's visit to Dobson High School Wednesday morning.
Some of the students attentively watched the speech, giving questioning looks and comments, shaking their heads and laughing at some of Obama’s words.

Other students listened, occasionally glancing up to watch, while texting on their cell phones, reading a book or finishing school work.
-- Hayley Ringle
Hans Christian Anderson’s remarkable 1837 the tale of swindlers coming into town to take advantage of people’s hubris and conformity is being played out in the Obama administration in this the 21st century.

The swindlers, tailors, thought if they could spin an elaborate ruse about fine clothing and exclusiveness (only the very enlighten would be able to see the clothing) they could make millions so the story goes.

They would have gotten clean away with the scam too without one person coming out of their politically correct imposed silence had it not been for a mere child a little boy who was not taken in by all the pretense and said it like he saw it.

“The Emperor has on no clothes!” The child proclaimed and the towns people were finally free to say what they all knew but were afraid to say from fear of appearing nonconformist and ignorant. Indeed the Emperor was parading before them in his underwear and expected them to believe that he had on clothes.

President Barack Hussein Obama recently visited Dobson High School in Mesa Arizona to tout his Economic Stimulus bill which he had just signed into law. The President and his advisors thought it wise for him to go on tour to sell the new law to the American people. (see story)
“Overall I think it’s a good idea, but he’s not addressing the issues of the economic crisis.

The spending bill he just passed is just progressing the Democratic agenda rather than addressing the economic issues in the country.”
— Syna Daudfar, Senior Advance Placement Student
Daudfar thinks Obama’s plan is backward and deals with the “less important stuff” first. “Bailing out businesses” and “providing better regulatory systems for giving out money to businesses” should have been first, he said.

“If businesses can’t afford to hire people, then people won’t be able to work and pay off their mortgages,” he said. “It’s kind of like putting money into a funnel.”

Ahh… the fresh insight of children when grown-ups are using such arguments like the President made before his loyal Democrat partisans, "So then you get the argument, well, this is not a stimulus bill, this is a spending bill. What do you think a stimulus is? (Laughter and applause.) That's the whole point. No, seriously. (Laughter.) That's the point. (Applause.) "(source)

You see President Obama readily admits "the whole point" of his "stimulus" bill is government SPENDING for Democrat purposes which many of us believe is partisan and wasteful spending! (see video)

Finally the students of Dobson High wondered why they where being used as political staging when what the President was speaking about had absolutely nothing to do with them.
The students also questioned why Obama chose their school for his speech since he wasn’t talking about education and wondered how much money the district spent on beautifying the campus while district positions and services are being cut.

District officials noted this week that the landscaping project completed over the weekend at Dobson was already in the works and was just expedited by the president’s visit. Funding came from voter-approved bonds.
-- Hayley Ringle
Get used to it kids because to this administration it seems that the whole world is a stage from which to parade naked partisanship, naked Democrat propaganda and $3.27Trillion dollar Democrat spending bills like invisible suits of clothes for the President to wear before the American people and before you at Dobson High school.

And you kids saw right though it and said, “This bill promotes the naked Democrat agenda!”

That’s right kids this President has no clothes other than naked partisanship!

Obama Symbolism 101

President Obama in front of a symbolic backdrop
Aides to Obama had considered staging a signing ceremony in the White House’s ornate East Room, but eventually concluded that a tableau of politicians congratulating each other in front of gold-tinged curtains would undermine the president’s emphasis on the legislation creating “real jobs” across the country.

The site for Obama’s bill signing, a Denver science museum, was intended to showcase the environmentally friendly aspects of the stimulus legislation.
--JOSH GERSTEIN (see story)
It’s all about symbolism and appearances with President Barack Hussein Obama. Our new President is obsessed with symbols and symbolism more than any other president in recent history. He is always invoking the images and symbolism of Abraham Lincoln or John F. Kennedy.

He consistently makes his very own symbols and signs, i.e. the “O” with red, white and blue strips, the light blue placard complete with the new office never seen before, “the office of the President-elect” and don’t forget that new spiffy Obama powder blue seal complete with eagle, a mock of the presidential seal. (see source)
“We were looking at the “o” of his name and had the idea of a rising sun and a new day,” Mr. Sender said. “The sun rising over the horizon evoked a new sense of hope.”—Sol Sender (see source)
In addition you must remember that Obama used the symbolism of Corinthian/Doric/Ionic columns complete with the alter of Zeus as a backdrop for his victory speech the night he won the Presidential election. These were meant to convey timeless, unlimited power and ruler ship.
Obama's campaign produced a full-on neoclassical temple facade: four imposing Doric columns and 10 sizable pilasters, all connected by a frieze and arranged in a gently curving arc.

From the center of this colonnaded contraption extended a long peninsular walkway, lined with blue carpeting and capped by a circular stage and wedding-cake steps.

Classicism offers an almost bottomless pool of symbolism, and the campaign dipped into it with a number of goals. For an American viewer, a row of columns can suggest stability or even martial strength[.] Such columns can also suggest populism and public participation -- the highest-minded ideals of democratic government.
—Christopher Hawthorne (see source)
And I would be remiss if I didn't mention that President Obama with a very symbolical flair had to be sworn in with his hand on the exact Bible that President Abraham Lincoln was sworn into the Presidency on.

That said, just why did the President sign the Demulus Stimulus bill into law in Denver, Colorado rather than the East Room in the White House? Answer: Symbolism. Everything is staged in cryptic symbolic terms with the Obama administration it’s like he is attempting to draw on other worldly powers.

Obama aides thought signing the $3.27Trillion dollar Stimulus bill into law in a Denver Colorado science museum would send a more appropriate subliminal message to the American people rather than signing the bill at the White House, regardless of the giant carbon footprint and the impact on the environment that such a trip actually made.

If nothing else the Obama administration is going to bring childhood inquisitiveness back to the American people or at least it should because you need to be asking, “Mommy why are they doing that,” every time this administration stages an event. There is so much implicit cryptic meaning embedded in everything that this group does and if you blink you could miss something very important, that is, if you are lulled to sleep by surface appearances which are continually posed by the Obama administration.

One could miss something like a fundamental change to our Constitution or even a change in the status of our nation’s sovereignty if we don’t understand the symbolism being used at any given time by President Obama and his administration regardless of what he or they say.

There is a whole underworld of subterfuge with the Obamacans. More often mixing Orwellian message control with a kind of “never let a serious crisis go to waste” à la the hyper Democrat partisan and Obama strong arm chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel.
"Never let a serious crisis go to waste. What I mean by that is it's an opportunity to do things you couldn't do before."-- White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel
The Obama administration believes that they can “kind of” slip things in on the American people while we’re preoccupied with President Obama’s verbal slight-of-hand.

Therefore being the illusionists that the Obamacans are the American people should not and can not believe anything that we’re seeing and/or hearing from the Obama administration. No we must pay strict attention to what is actually going on in the background behind the scenes.

Why? Because the Obama administration’s every intention and meaning is duplicitous and everything that Obama says is clouded in some sort of double entendre. Liberals call this nuanced but most of us call this deception.

For example Obama’s biggest prize to date the Economic Stimulus package touted by Obama to be the only way and the only thing able to save a dieing American economy is a grand deception.

A closer examination by almost every non partisan source including the non partisan Congressional Budget Office revealed that the main function of the Demulus Stimulus package, that is now law, will not stimulate the economy as promised by the Democrats.

What it will do, in fact, is funnel tax payer dollars to Democrat interest and concerns which Democrats have been attempting to fund for the last 30 to 40 years. Never let a good crisis go to waste eh Emanuel?

That and use plenty of ubiquitous and furtive symbols that are meant to convey subliminal messages. All to the end of affecting fundamental change to the political psyche of Americans as well as affect fundamental change to the Constitution of the United States of America.

The Beginning of the End

President Obama and Vice President Biden marking the beginning of the end
I don’t want to pretend that today marks the end of our economic problems, nor does it constitutes all of what we are going to have to do to turn our economy around but today does mark the beginning of the end…--President Barack Hussein Obama
Sigmund Freud said that sometimes a cigar is just a cigar. Of course he also postulated that it could also be symbolic of a phallus, or warm memories of grandfather or even associated with the stinking odor of turds.

What is also true is in the Orwellian world of Democrats words and meaning are often as confused as the cocaine and opium induced mind of Freud.

In President Obama’s Orwellian world words are not what they seem either. Notice how the President attempts to wax eloquent about how everyone, yes everyone in Washington D.C. and the world; Democrats and Republicans, supports his $3.27Trillion dollar Demulus Stimulus bill. (see video)

The truth, there is not any real support for what the Democrats have done outside of their own little circle. The stock markets have literally convulsed at the signing of this fraudulent stimulus effort. There is no Republican support for Obama’s stimulus law and companies all across America are still laying off employees and closing their doors. (see video)

Sometimes Mr. Obama we say what our unconscious really means, and perhaps you did. Maybe you are right, that is what you and your Democrat allies have done by signing your Demulus Stimulus bill into law really marks… the Beginning of the End!

Global Warming Is A Political Tool

Dr. Harrison Schmitt
[Harrison]Schmitt resigned after the group[the Planetary Society] blamed global warming on human activity. In his resignation letter, the 74-year-old geologist argued that the "global warming scare is being used as a political tool to increase government control over American lives, incomes and decision making."
He was an Astronaut who walked on the moon, a former U.S. Senator who served New Mexico and he is a working 74-year-old geologist who has resigned his membership from The Planetary Society, a nonprofit dedicated to space exploration because of the Society’s politically correct stance on Anthropogenic Global Warming. (see story)

You see Harrison Schmitt is a man of many, many accomplishments yet his most notable to date may very well be his refusal to go along with the politically correct views of Global warming. When the Planetary Society announced that their official stance was a support for the theory of man-made global warming Dr. Schmitt resigned his membership.

Former Sen. Schmitt says that Global warming is a political tool with which government is attempting to exert control over people. Schmitt has also stated that he has seen too many of his colleagues lose grant funding when they haven’t gone along with the so-called political consensus that we’re in a human-caused global warming."

According to Boston Schmitt said historical documents indicate average temperatures have risen by 1 degree per century since around 1400 A.D., and the rise in carbon dioxide is because of the temperature rise.

Schmitt also said geological evidence indicates changes in sea level have been going on for thousands of years. He said smaller changes are related to changes in the elevation of land masses — for example, the Great Lakes are rising because the earth’s crust is rebounding from being depressed by glaciers.

Schmitt has a science degree from the California Institute of Technology. He also studied geology at the University of Oslo in Norway and took a doctorate in geology from Harvard University in 1964.

In 1972, he was one of the last men to walk on the moon as part of the Apollo 17 mission.

Obama Signs Demulus Stimulus Today

--by Steve Breen
[T]he problems with the 1,000-plus-page bill are legion. The most basic flaw is that many of its projects costing tens of billions of dollars cannot be started for several years, meaning they will yield no short-term stimulus. It is outrageous to pass the tab for these projects on to our children and grandchildren. —Union-Tribune
A Pyrrhic victory is a victory with devastating cost to the victor. Unfortunately President Obama and his Party’s $3.27Trillion dollar Demulus Stimulus bill victory will have a devastating cost to this Nation as well when he signs the Demulus bill into law today in Denver Colorado.

Demulus Stimulus so called because this bill will do more to stimulate the Democrats' hold and lust for political power, by fulfilling a laundry list of Democrat special Pork projects, than it will stimulate the American economy.(see story)

Just like taxpayers who will inevitably pay for Nadya Suleman, the Octopulets mom's 14 kids that she's raising on welfare, so too the American people will be stuck with payment of this bill until Nadya's children's children are old enough to pay for it. No doubt they and the rest of the American people will still owe for it!

But it is President Obama’s credibility that should be immediately and irreparably damaged because he promised an era of hope and change in Washington D.C. only to force his first major piece of legislation through by the same business as usual Democrat politics

Not that Democrats care, but Obama lied. He broke at least 7 of promises he made for a more ethical and open government. Promises that helped get him elected he broke at the very first opportunity to get his Demulus bill passed and signed today. (see video)

Obama’s 7 Broken Promises:
1. Make Government Open and Transparent
2. Make it "Impossible" for Congressmen to slip in Pork Barrel Projects
3. Meetings where laws are written will be more open to the public (Republicans shut out)
4. No more secrecy
5. Public will have 5 days to look at a Bill
6. You'll know what's in it (Republican Senators didn’t know)
7. We will put every pork barrel project online
According to the Union Tribune, [a]nother unforgivable flaw is how the bill makes huge changes on major national policies without any significant debate. One provision guts the 1996 welfare reform law, which reduced caseloads by 70 percent. Instead, individuals will again be entitled to unlimited lifetime benefits without work requirements and, amazingly, states will have financial incentives to increase caseloads.

Other provisions appear to sharply increase the federal government's role in health care by establishing a national database of Americans' medical records and by monitoring every hospital's treatment standards on cost-containment grounds.

Defenders of the health provisions say these descriptions are inaccurate. But that brings us to the bill's final unforgivable flaw: Despite its importance and huge costs, it was enacted in such haste that no one has a firm handle on its contents and their consequences.

Yes and even Republican John Boehner says that no one has even read the thousands of pages which it would take for someone to fully know or understand the consequences that Democrats have unleashed on our nation through this bill. (see video)

But Democrat Senator Charles “Chucky” Schumer freely contradicts President Obama and admits that there is Pork in this bill but says so what? What are you going to do about it we won the election, in so many words. Sen. Schumer is convinced that you, the American people don’t even care about the cost that this bill will have on our nation. (see video)

So… do you care?

$3.27Trillion dollar Demulus Package

Democrats vote to spent your money on their projects

Oh you thought it was $787 billion dollars? Do you believe everything that a Democrat tells you?

According to the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office the $787 billion dollar Demulus Package (so named because no Republicans voted for it) will cost your children and your children’s children a cool $3.27Trillion dollars according to that stems from the $744 billion it will take to pay for the additional debt the legislation will create, and $2.527 trillion in increased spending from the new and expanded programs the bill will spawn over the next decade. (see story) and see (CBO letter to Nancy Pelosi)

By the way I did not misspeak no Republicans voted for it. If you are thinking of Sens. Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe both of Maine and Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania by their own actions they have proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that they are not Republicans. Further all three of them should be barred from any Republican caucus and they should be censured until they can be defeated in the next election.

Collins, Snowe and Specter have constantly and continually been a liability to the Republican Party and frankly this Party can no longer afford Mavericks when the Democrats continue to control their tightly knit Party.

And you can bet that every Democrat no vote against the Demulus Package was approved by Nancy Pelosi so that Blue Dog Democrats could go home and say that they voted against the Demulus Package. It’s all Democrat illusion.

What is not an illusion is that the bill now spans more than 1,000 pages according to and has all of the Democrat pet projects that are objectionable to fiscal Conservatives because these projects are meant to enhance and strengthen Democrat power and control over government.

• The plan has more than $3 billion in “neighborhood stabilization” and Community Development Block Grant funding, much of which may go to benefit ACORN, a low-income housing and voter registration “community” organization that is under federal investigation for its suspicious voter registration practices.
• $1.3 billion to bailout AMTRAK, the perennial money-loser railroad.
• $1 billion for educational programs, including courses on sexually transmitted diseases.
• $30 million for restoration of wetlands to be spent in the San Francisco Bay Area – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s district. The money will go in part to protect the endangered salt marsh harvest mouse.
• $200 million for a low-pollution, coal-fired power plant in President Barack Obama’s home state of Illinois.
• $45 million for ATV four-wheeler trails, and government office renovations, according to RNC Chairman Michael Steele.
• $200 million to provide computers to community colleges.
• $50 million for the National Endowment of the Arts.
• Over $650 million in coupons to help consumers buy digital TV converter-box coupons.
• A reported $300 million for hybrid vehicles and electric-powered cars. According to the Washington Times, this item will include buying golf carts for federal workers.

Democrats own this disaster they will not be able to lay any of this on Republicans, oh they will attempt to but Republicans did just enough to remove all doubt that Democrats wrote this bill themselves, passed it through a Democrat controlled Congress and a Democrat President will sign it into law when he comes back from holiday in a day or two.

And you thought that there was an urgency to Congress passing this bill!

Here’s Obama in his own words outlining the wasteful spending in Demulus package. (see video)

Earmarks and pet projects? This Demulus bill that Obama will sign on Tuesday is full of them. Everything that Obama said about this bill is a lie.

An Electronic Run On United States Banks

Federal Reserve Board Chairman Ben Bernanke (C) is greeted by committee chairman Rep. Barney Frank (L) and Rep. Paul Kanjorski (R)

Someone attempted to end the world economic system as we know it according to Democrat Representative Paul Kanjorski of Pennsylvania. According to Kanjorski $550 Billion Disappeared in an "Electronic Run On the Banks." (see story)

At 2 minutes, 20 seconds into this C-Span video clip, Rep. Paul Kanjorski of Pennsylvania explains that on September 15, 2008 how the Federal Reserve told Congress members about a "tremendous draw-down of money market accounts in the United States, to the tune of $550 billion dollars." According to Kanjorski, this electronic transfer occurred over the period of an hour or two.(see video)

"On Thursday Sept 15, 2008 at roughly 11 AM The Federal Reserve noticed a tremendous draw down of money market accounts in the USA to the tune of $550 Billion dollars in a matter of an hour or two.

Money was being removed electronically.

The treasury tried to help with $150 Billion.

But could not stem the tide.

It was an electronic run on the banks

The treasury intervened but had they not closed down the accounts they estimated that by 2 PM that afternoon. Within 3 hours. $5.5 Trillion would have been withdrawn and collapsed and within 24 hours the world economy."
Up until now we have be lead to believe that it was the collapse of the housing credit market that was the cause of the world-wide economic crisis.

If Rep. Kanjorski, a Democrat, allegations are true why doesn’t President Obama tell the American people the truth about how we got into this mess instead of blaming the Bush administration and Republicans for the economic crisis?

And finally if Rep. Kanjorski’s allegations are true then giving more money to banks under a Democrat stimulus package is not the answer if someone is able to electronically withdraw billions to trillions of dollars virtually undetected and apparently immune from capture.

What’s Hope got to do with it?

Now that the White House and Democrats in Congress have decided the $790Billion dollar Demulus Package.(That's the Democrat only Stimulus package)Are you one of the millions that voted for hope and change, but you are now realizing that after Barack got your vote he quickly put hope and change on the shelf?

I mean what’s up with all the doom and gloom regarding the economy that Barack used to get the Demulus package passed? It’s like if we don’t do what he wants and if we didn't do it right now the world is going to end. That’s not how Ronald Reagan did it and that’s not how Franklin Roosevelt did it either. (see story)
If we don't move swiftly to put this plan in motion, our economic crisis could become a national catastrophe. Millions of Americans will lose their jobs, their homes, and their health care. Millions more will have to put their dreams on hold.—President Barack Hussein Obama
What Obama is doing is creating a climate of fear, one that self-reliance and self-sustainability are all but abandoned and the willingness to welcome and submit to the control of big government via the introduction of a $827Billion dollar stimulus bill as guaranteed by a Democrat controlled Congress and a few or three Republicans in name only or RINOs (see video)

Obama is betraying this country! He’s playing on our fears. He’s taking America on an ill-conceived Stimulus bill spending panic that is dangerous to America’s fiscal well-being and the fiscal well-being of our children and our children’s children.

It is an economic crisis that has its genesis in Democrat Liberal fiscal and lending policies, policies started under President Carter and reinforce under President Clinton preordained and planned to fail"
—Alaphiah, adapted from Al Gore’s He played on our fears
The fact is Democrats are going to rush this so-called Stimulus bill through and it will be signed by President Obama by weeks end. But it will not save one job. It will not restore one job. Even if Obama says that Caterpillar will rescind the 22,000 layoffs if the Demulus package is signed. What it will do is increase public dependency on government and in so doing freedom will be lost because we will depend on government for everything and government will make rules as to who gets what and by what criteria goods and services are distributed.
“We’re moving precipitously close to what I would call a savior-based economy, what you see in Russia or Venezuela or Zimbabwe or places like that where it matters not how good your product is to the consumer but what your political connection is to those in power.”-- Gov. Mark Sanford of South Carolina (see story)
So far Democrats have played games with this so-called fiscal crisis. They have added billions of dollars of superfluous spending to a bill that is supposed to be crucial to the survival of the U.S. economy.

They have engaged in fear mongering and attempts to wrongfully discredit opponents. And last they have used the Office President of the United States to scare the American people into compliance with big government control in the initial form of a Stimulus carrot by which our children and their children will get the very expensive and painful stick.
That's right. The candidate of "Hope and Change" has decided to be a president who espouses "Fear and Loathing." Fear of financial Armageddon unless we do as we are told and blindly give in to his $900 billion panic panacea for the economy and loathing of the opposition -- an opposition Obama unfairly portrays as opposing him out of spite and because a popular talk radio host is telling them what to do. — Rick Moran
Look Democrats don’t have a clue of what they are doing just as no one does. What we need to know is this, attempting to scare people into compliance whether the concern is Global warming or the World economic meltdown is wrong. We need honest discussion concerning what we don’t know combined with truth about what we do know.

Finally above it all we need Americans who will put America first if America is going to survive this global economic realignment. If those among us continue to play partisan politics while we are at crisis, even if it is the President and even if he pretends like he isn’t, we will most certainly face the catastrophe that this President is predicting no matter what course of action we pursue.
The truth should be dawning on all of us just about now that Democrats, Republicans, economists, Wall Street wizards, and even the high priests of monetary policy at the Federal Reserve have no idea how bad things are going to get or whether anything Congress does can improve the situation -- much less stave off disaster. --Rick Moran

Where was the Republican Response?

RNC Chairman Michael Steele

Every time President George W. Bush gave a speech whether it was the State of the Union Address or his weekly address to the nation Democrats always had their equal time response. So where was the Republican response to President Obama’s first primetime News conference and his Elkhart, Indiana pre- News conference warm-up?

President Obama’s mischaracterization of Republican ideology and political positions hang over the nation Monday evening like noxious greenhouse gases and CO2 emissions yet in another example of not really for primetime there was not an equal time Republican response.

What is up with Republicans? Don’t they understand that this was exactly the tactic employed by Democrat against President Bush? Democrats responded to everything that President Bush said and that was one of the tactics that got Democrats into White House. Is there not a Republican that understands politics?

There were plenty of things that Republicans could have rebutted because Obama got a lot of things wrong. Yet they allow Obama lies and continual falsifications of Republican positions to convict them in the court of American public opinion. Obama spoke from both sides of his mouth and there was no Republican there to bring correction to the neophyte President.

AP reporter Calvin Woodward ticked off several of such bifurcations at the mouth of the President. (see story)
President Barack Obama had it both ways Monday when he promoted his stimulus plan in Indiana. He bragged about getting Congress to produce a package with no pork, yet boasted it will do good things for a Hoosier highway and a downtown overpass, just the kind of local projects lawmakers lard into big spending bills.—Calvin Woodward
Woodward shows that Obama’s claims of no earmarks in the stimulus bill is preposterous, that Obama’s claim that Daschle and Killefer appointments where simply mistakes is ridiculous but instead it was a pre-calculated assumption that he could muscle them through like he did Timothy Geithner.

And finally Woodward reports that Obama’s claim that his stimulus bill would produce 3 million to 4 million jobs over the next two years is unverifiable at best.

Next Jay Cost examines the President’s Primetime News conference to find it chuck full of false arguments to make Republicans look bad and he and Democrats look good. Cost says that Obama used falsifications and Straw Man arguments which are arguments that one attributes to one’s opponent, though the opponent never argued the position. (see transcript)
Time and again, I noted that the President engaged in a rhetorical maneuver commonly called "attacking a straw man." That's what you do when you mischaracterize your opponent's position, and you refute the mischaracterization rather than what your opponent really thinks.—Jay Cost
The position or idea usual makes your opponent look bad and when you argue to defeat the idea you likewise defeat your opponent. It’s called building a Straw Man so you can knock it down.(see story)

Surely there is a Republican somewhere who is versed in the methodology of debate who could have refuted the debate team tricks that Obama used before the American people.

Cost writes that Obama argued that Republicans’ position is that “tax cuts alone” will solve America’s financial crisis. But no Republican is arguing that! “Straw Man.”

Cost also shows that Obama argued that Republicans argue that the government should not intervene. Another “Straw Man.” The first Stimulus package was under President Bush.

Then the President mis-represented Republicans by saying they believe that nothing should be done. Another Straw Man argument.

Finally Cost brings to our attention that President Obama used ad hominem attacks against Republicans. Simple name calling rather than debate ideas.

With no Republican response the very next day the Senate Democrats with three Republican defectors approved President Obama’s $837Billion dollar pork laden “No Stimulus bill but a very big Christmas tree” hung with all of the goodies that Democrats have wanted for the last 20 years.

Look, there are two fundamental things Republicans must learn if they are ever going to gain power again, one, they must learn how to hold their caucus like Democrats did for eight years and two, they must learn the art and science of politics like Democrats have.

Republicans must demand equal time to every speech that President Obama gives. They must do this to present the minority view just as Democrats did for eight years in opposition to President Bush.

Geez I can’t believe that someone would have to tell Republicans something so fundamental.

It’s not like the Democrats didn’t already do all this stuff to them and President Bush!

* 44th President of the United States

Taint! Recently I heard an interview; some kids were asked if A-Rod or Alex Rodriguez was still their baseball hero after the disclosure that he used steroids in 2003.

The kids almost in unison answered back, “No! He cheated he used steroids” Boy, I thought wow the kids get it. So put a big asterisk by A-Rod’s name for whatever he accomplished in baseball. * Alex Rodriguez used steroids. (see story)

That makes Rodriguez a lair and a cheat. He told Katie Couric in a 2007 interview that he never used steroids. (see story)

The asterisk is normally reserved for cheaters in sports you know the steroid hyped-up baseball slugger who breaks all existing homerun records. We often marvel at how far a man can hit one over the stadium wall into the next state even, but we wouldn’t want to send the message to our children that it’s all right to cheat now would we? Naw after all kids tend to idolize these guys.

But wait I seem to remember… yes it was only yesterday that ACORN the group that is poised to receive $4Billion dollars in the Obama stimulus bill was found cheating in several states registering invalid names and the like in their successfully but tainted attempt to get Barack Obama elected president.

With all of the unsavory activity surrounding this recent presidential election I’m going to have to put an asterisk by the * 2008 presidential election.
Talk about a nutty idea.
President Obama's plan to set aside over $4 billion in his stimulus package for controversial community groups such as ACORN amounts to a "payoff" in return for their support of Democrats last year, according to a leading Republican lawmaker.
-- CLEMENTE LISI,NewYorkPost (see story)
Likewise the House and now the Senate economic stimulus bills are meant to help a flagging economy but as Democrats always do, especially now that they are in charge, they add on irrelevant spending measures (ACORN’s $4 Billion) to benefit themselves. They do this on the backs and at the expense of the American people and our children’s children. Yep I’ve got to put an asterisk by the *Obama stimulus bill. (see what’s in the stimulus bill)
We've looked it over, and even we can't quite believe it. There's $1 billion for Amtrak, the federal railroad that hasn't turned a profit in 40 years; $2 billion for child-care subsidies; $50 million for that great engine of job creation, the National Endowment for the Arts; $400 million for global-warming research and another $2.4 billion for carbon-capture demonstration projects.

There's even $650 million on top of the billions already doled out to pay for digital TV conversion coupons.

In selling the plan, President Obama has said this bill will make "dramatic investments to revive our flagging economy." Well, you be the judge.

Some $30 billion, or less than 5% of the spending in the bill, is for fixing bridges or other highway projects. There's another $40 billion for broadband and electric grid development, airports and clean water projects
—Wall Street Journal
Finally the president of the United States of America according to our Constitution is someone who is a natural born citizen of these United States of America. Barack Hussein Obama was sworn into the presidency as the *44th president of the United States of America without meeting that constitution requirement. (see previous post)
To date Mr. Obama as not disclosed any of the following information:

Certificate of Live Birth

Columbia College records
Columbia Thesis paper
Certification of Live Birth showing where born
Harvard College records

Illinois State Senate records
Illinois State Senate schedule
Law practice client list and billing records/summary
Locations and names of all half-siblings and step-mothers
Medical records (only the one page summary released so far)
Occidental College records

Parent's Marriage Certificate
Record of baptism
Selective Service Registration
Trips schedules for trips outside of the United States before 2007
Scholarly articles
Campaign donor analysis requested by 7 major watchdog groups
This is so simple that even a kid can understand. Barack Hussein Obama did what A-Rod did. Obama cheated. Democrats cheated. Therefore, Barack Hussein Obama *44th President of the United States of America receives a well deserved asterisk.

Call and let the RINO’s; Sens. Collins, Snowe and Specter know how you feel about their aiding and abetting of Democrats putting a mortgage on our children’s lives to fund Democrat pet projects disguised as a * lower cost stimulus bill.

The Power of Three

RINO's assume the position for Obama
As it stands [in the Senate], three Republicans are expected to join the 58 Democrats in favor of the bill, and the negotiations may tilt slightly in the Senate’s favor as officials try to keep that coalition in place.

In the end, the only Republicans whose support [Senate] Democrats won were Mr. Specter, Ms. Collins and Senator Olympia J. Snowe of Maine.
Like a bad episode of the television series Charmed, Republicans continue to cast bad legislative choices like bad spells which will continue to ensure that they will remain the minority Party for decades to come and ultimately hurt the American people. (see story)

Sens. Susan Collins, Maine, Arlen Specter, Pennsylvania and Olympia Snowe, Maine are three RINOs in the classic denotation of insanity as they attempt to once again to work with Democrats apparently expecting a different result than getting their and the Republican Party's asses handed to them this time too as in 2004 and 2008.

Didn’t these Bush Republicans learn anything from the previous eight years? Democrats virtually undermined the entire government attempt to lose a war and destroyed a Republican President and his Party all in the effort to gain the power that they now wield over this government.

These Democrats withheld their unified support and talked down President Bush and Republicans for eight solid years. They lied about how we got into this financial crisis (which was primarily caused by Democrat policies that Republicans embraced. Doesn't any of this sound familiar?) To this very day President Obama and Democrats continue to blame Bush and Republicans for the problems in the economy which Democrats caused.

This is a Democrat mess! One that they have purposely made in order to defeat Republicans so someone please tell me what sense does it make for any Republican to aide in his or her own defeat and demise?

Helping a Democrat is like a monkey jumping on a crocodile’s back for a ferry across the river after crocodile talks of bipartisanship and patriotism. Undoubtly in mid swim the monkey will be heard exclaiming but why are you eating me Mr. Crocodile the crocodile will answer back with a rancid burp, “Because I’m a Democrat fool!”

If Republicans, all Republicans just stood back and did nothing that would be more helpful and Patriotic than what Sens. Collins, Snowe and Specter are doing in their enabling of their Democrat allies according to the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office!
President Obama's economic recovery package will actually hurt the economy more in the long run than if he were to do nothing, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office said Wednesday.—Stephen Dinan, Washington Times (see story)
In addition to that not one of the 600,000 jobs lost in our economy in January or any job lost subsequently will be saved or reestablished with the passing of this $827Billion dollar monstrosity geared to guaranteed to farther ensconce Democrats in power by billions of dollars of payments to ACORN, the 2010 Census and other Democrat partisan projects in order to continue falsifying Democrat votes and numbers.

Olympia Snowe, Susan Collins and Arlen Specter

Collins, Snowe and Specter did nothing to ensure that these partisan programs would not continue to receive unjustified funding in this so-called stimulus bill.

These three RINOs must be held accountable for their part in the damage that Obama and Democrats have caused and will cause if this Democrat appropriations bill disguised as a stimulus bill is voted on and passed on this Tuesday or Wednesday.

Please use the next couple of days to call and/or email Collins, Snowe and Specter to let them know that we hold them in contempt of the American people for selling us out for the business as usual stick together Washington insiders club that they’ve obviously have chosen over the well-being of the American people.

An Embarrassment to the White House

President Obama and the Real Presidential Seal
White House press secretary Robert Gibbs, who came under fire from reporters in the briefing room on Tuesday, acknowledged that the day’s events were an embarrassment to the White House, but added that the president continues to have “confidence in the [vetting] process.”— Sam Youngman and J. Taylor Rushing
Yeah like we’re not going to be hearing a lot of that for the next four years, Tom Daschle’s scandalous tax fraud and his subsequent withdrawal from consideration to be Secretary of Health and Human Services is an embarrassment to the White house and only two weeks into the Obama presidency that’s got to be a Guinness Book world record.(see story)(see video)

Now White House press secretary Robert Gibbs says that the president continues to have confidence in the vetting process? What vetting process? Is Mr. Gibbs speaking about the vetting process that Obama’s people promised was supposed to be the most extensive vetting process to ever be used by a president? You don’t remember that? Well please allow me to aid your memory.
Obama is conducting the vetting process much the way he managed his campaign: methodically, thoroughly and on a prodigious scale. He did not wait until he won the election to vet his favored picks.

Soon after he clinched the Democratic nomination, lawyers quietly prepared dossiers of about 150 contenders for senior positions -- often without the candidates themselves knowing -- said a senior Obama transition adviser who spoke on the condition of anonymity.
—Philip Rucker
We were told that Obama’s transition team was supposed to be manned by an army of volunteer lawyers who were supposed to vet his potential picks with unprecedented scrutiny of their personal, financial and professional backgrounds.(see story)
Now, as President-elect Barack Obama assembles his administration, an army of lawyers volunteering on his transition team are vetting his potential picks with unprecedented scrutiny of their personal, financial and professional backgrounds.—Philip Rucker,Washingtonpost
If President Obama didn’t lie about the unprecedented vetting process how did any of the following get through it: Gov. Bill Richards, Sen. Hillary Clinton, Timothy Geithner, Eric Holder, Tom Daschle, and Nancy Killefer?

Link: Gibbs on White House Ethics Standards

Exceptions! The Obama administration explains it this way. There will be a few people who are uniquely qualified that will be excepted from the vetting process.

So to the Obama administration the ends justify the means. In any discussion about ethics that attitude is not very ethical. And for an administration that promised to be the most ethical presidential administration ever this is not good!

Interviewing with Anderson Cooper the President said, "I think that, look, ultimately, I campaigned on changing Washington and bottom-up politics. And I don't want to send a message to the American people that there are two sets of standards, one for powerful people, and one for ordinary folks who are working every day and paying their taxes.”

The only problem Mr. President is you were perfectly willing to present all of these ethically challenged individuals to the Senate and to the American people. You were perfectly willing to support them right up until the time that public sentiment turn against some of them and their unethical behaviors. Only then did you think enough to say that you screwed up.
Each name -- Clinton, Daschle, Holder, Axelrod, Emanuel -- must meet tough new vetting standards put in place by the Obama transition. So is this the toughest screening process in presidential history?—Gwen Ifill, PBS
You had us all fooled President Obama. You even had one of your biggest fans Gwen Ifill fooled. Ms. Ifill reported that all of your appointees would have to face that most rigorous screening process in presidential history. I hope she’s not to disappointed, though it doesn’t seem that you can do anything to shake the faith of your true believers. (see story)

Saying that you messed up or that you made a mistake does not put this behind you Mr. Obama we all know that trick. What it does is it shows that you knew that these where unethical people but that didn’t bother you Mr. President because you have always surrounded yourself with unethical people.

Finally the fact that you would do a Mea culpa is further proof that you are an unethical man yourself. Not because you said it was your fault but the fact that you used the Mea culpa as a device to get over this scandal so that you could quickly move on to the next!

Prevention or Reduced Cost it all sounds like funding Abortion to Me

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi

In the Orwellian World of Nancy Pelosi $819Billion dollar pork laden stimulus package can be chuck full of payments to Planned Parenthood and other abortion advocacy groups and that will stimulate the Economy. (see videos)

Now a second attempt by Pelosi:

Hum, so according to Pelosi less is better. That’s right the less people born the less people to provide jobs, universal healthcare, food stamps, and contraceptives for. Hey that’s preventative and that’s reducing cost! Way to go Nancy.

But wait a minute in the future when the $819Billion dollar bill comes due and you’ve prevented and reduced all of those births who is going to pay for your stimulus package?

Maybe we can get the Chinese to do it. They already hold a good portion of our debt why not let them worry that the $819Billion too.

That's it! I just came up with our new foreign policy, “Hey China you can’t war against us because if you defeat us or destroy us then who’s going to pay you back the trillions of dollars that we owe you?”

Get that statement to Obama right away it makes just as much sense as apologizing to Iran and the rest of the Islamic world for America.

Pelosi’s stimulus monstrosity is being debated in the Senate this week. Democrats have the votes to pass whatever they want but they still want the “Republican cover” that they didn’t get in the House of Representatives. It’s like they want Mommy’s and Daddy’s approval they just don’t want to be seen in public with them.

The trouble for Conservatives is there are enough Bush Republicans in the Senate to go along to get along with this $900Billion dollar Democrat madness. What’s a Bush Republican you ask? Oh that’s the Republican that wears the kick me sign on his or her back as they abandon their free market principles or any other principles that would distinguish them from a Democrat.

Bush Republicans are very eager to please their Democrat allies in the Senate and are often seen bending over frontward to do so. Bush Republicans are sometimes referred to as RINOs and like the actual animal they are not considered very bright.

So you tell them that a $900Billion dollar Democrat appropriations bill is really a stimulus package to get the economy moving but don’t pay any attention to the $4.3Billion dollars in this bill earmarked for ACORN or any of the other Democrat boondoggles and a senate Bush Republican will go along with Democrats every time.

This so-called Stimulus bill is business as usual in Washington nothing has changed except there are different Conmen in charge.

Senate Republicans should reject this bill if Democrats refuse to strip out all of their non-stimulus irrelevant wish list items.

After seeing what Democrats did to President Bush, Bush Republicans should know by now that voting on any bill just to please Democrats is a lose, lose situation. So why not do the right thing and keep true to Republican principles; small government, less spending, and Conservative values.

If Pelosi or anyone else in D.C. really truly believed in prevention or reduced cost the Senate would prevent any and all non-stimulus appropriations from getting attached to the Senate stimulus bill. That’s right not a single one not even Pelosi’s Orwellian version of prevention and reduced cost.

EU attack America’s Stimulus Bill

--by Jim Borgman
I come to Berlin as so many of my countrymen have come before. Tonight, I speak to you not as a candidate for President, but as a citizen - a proud citizen of the United States, and a fellow citizen of the world. –Barack Hussein Obama, speech at Berlin's victory column on July 24, 2008 (see speech)
Wait a minute didn’t you think the Stimulus bill was about America? I was foolish enough to think that too.

You know strengthening America, creating American jobs and improving the American economy, well maybe not. Apparently the European Union has something to say about what’s in the Pelosi Obama stimulus package. (see story)

First of all, somebody please tell me why the European Union is getting in America’s Kool-aid? (hand on my hip)

I hope it doesn’t have anything to do with Obama’s pre-Presidential “People of the world…” tour. Do you think Obama was signaling to the world that if he were elected they would be able to join in with our Congress to legislate American laws? Certainly looks like it. It’s like the European Union is all up in America’s business.

Personally I think that the EU should step-off and mind their own business but apparently not the president.
The EU spokesman said Europe would launch a complaint with the World Trade Organization (WTO) if the clause [Buy American] remained.
Under the “Buy American” clause passed by the US House of Representatives in the stimulus bill, American iron and steel must be used in construction projects that form part of the recovery plan. This is perhaps one of the few good things in this stimulus package. And the US Senate wants to extend the scope of the clause before the Bill goes to the White House for approval.

But the citizen of the world who is now the President of the United States is indicating that he has heard the people of the world of the European Union and he will remove the Buy American clause (which Congress wrote in the stimulus bill specifically to help the American economy) from the stimulus package to satisfy his fellow world citizens particularly those in the European Union.(see story)

Now I know that international relations are complicated but shouldn’t the President of the United States be concerned first with America’s interest? Like all those good middle class jobs that would be created under the buy American clause of the Stimulus bill.

And here’s another thing why is it when a nation focuses in on its own economic health and well-being the international types start throwing around pejoratives like protectionist, xenophobic, and nationalistic.

Ladies and Gentleman we’ve just witnessed the European Union dictating United States policy and the President of the United States acquiescing to their demands.

That is not the behavior of a sovereign nation. I hate to be the bearer of bad news but we are no longer a government, of the people by the people and for the people.

No we are but one of many satellite nations governed by both the G20, the world’s leading economic nations and the World Trade Organization. And here’s the worst part, our newly elected President and Congress are puppet rulers whose first allegiance is to the one world economy.

…You did vote for change didn’t you?

Why is Obama so obsessed with the GOP

President Barack Hussein Obama

Lately they are the most sought after group in Washington D.C. and who would have thought after losing both the Congress and the White house in successive national election years that anyone would care about what they think. But interesting enough unconstitutional usurper President Barack Hussein Obama does. These days he cares very much about Republicans (See story)

What’s more Obama is fixated on getting the GOP to back his first efforts at leadership. Why? Because this is the first time that Obama has actually done anything other than talk about what he could do and of course he’s attempting to look in command and Presidential all at the same time.

Apparently Obama feels that winning GOP support will indicate to everyone that he is the one that Washington has been waiting for. Obama has said that he plans to bring an end to partisanship in Washington. The only thing is to Obama bring an end to partisanship means ending the GOP as an actual opposition to his plans to change America from a constitutional republic into a socialist society. Getting this horribly partisan and terrible flawed Stimulus bill passed with GOP support would be proof positive that Obama is the one.

Physician heal thyself

If Obama wishes to end partisanship he has to look no further than his own Party. It was Democrats who set themselves up as the Party of opposition in 2000 after Vice President Al Gore’s loss to George W. Bush and for eight years Democrats have beat a steady drumbeat of vitriol anti-Republican hatred. Might I remind you that it was the Chairman of the DNC Howard Dean who pronounced that he hated Republicans and everything about them. And upon that pronouncement Democrats from grassroots to Congress waged partisan ideologically warfare against a sitting President and his Party. (see Politics of Hate)

And next what does Obama do when he takes office? In a blatant and largely symbol gesture he signs five executive orders undoing what he and his fellow Democrats believe were wrong policies of the Bush administration a further slighting of Republican policies.

And finally at the first opportunity Democrats put everything that they’ve ever wanted to push through legislatively in an appropriations bill disguised as an $819Billion dollar Economic Stimulus Bill hoping that Americans were too distracted with the economy to notice their partisan game playing at a time of national distress.

Most, if not all, of the Democrat wish list is diametrically opposite of Republican values yet Democrats feel that Republican should forsake their own values and sign on to policies that will harm the Country and policies that will harm Conservativism.

If Obama wishes to end the culture of opposition and partisanship in Washington then he should order his Party to cease and desist in their over the top political gamesmanship.

Maybe Obama is seeking the credibility that he doesn’t have because of the way he came into office. Or maybe his overt narcissism and hubris won’t allow him to think that he can’t control what the Republican opposition is doing.

Many feel that Obama is a Usurper who conned his way into Office and used corrupted Rod Blagojevich Chicago politics and ACORN to steal the Presidency. Many believe if the Media had done its job and simply reported on Obama as they reported on President Bush Obama would not be President today.

Remember it was almost as if it were a threat in his victory speech Obama proclaimed that he would be the opposition’s President too as if he could force acceptance of himself on Americans who didn’t support him or Americans who didn’t believe that he or his Party would take America in the correct direction. (victory speech)
And to those Americans whose support I have yet to earn, I may not have won your vote tonight, but I hear your voices. I need your help. And I will be your president, too.—Barack Hussein Obama
Can Obama force the GOP to comply to his will? Or will Obama be able to govern for four years without clearing up the legitimacy issues that surround his presidency?

A Stimulus Bill that stimulates the Democrat Party

Right now Obama is focused on getting the GOP to support a terrible stimulus bill.

Instead Obama should go to the Democrats and have them rewrite the bill to focus on stimulating the economy only. This should not be a bill meant to stimulate the Democrat Party as it obviously is.

A clean Stimulus bill that everyone can agree to will indicate that Obama reality is who he thinks he is.

Until Obama can get his own Party to act responsibility now that they are in power he shouldn’t expect anyone but self hating Republicans to go against their best interest and in blind allegiance support a President who has vowed to destroy the constitutional traditions of America with his one word euphemism for destruction, that word is change.
