Obama's Political Director has ties to SEIU and ACORN

Eric Erikson at RedState has the SEIU/ACORN/OBAMA scoops!

Another White House Name Surfaces in the ACORN Rolodex

If ACORN, the Working Families Party, or the SEIU wanted a jobs program at the White House, they have a ready outlet with Gaspard as the Political Director and Nancy Hogan as the Director for the Office of Personnel.

We know Van Jones got by the Office of Personnel. Nancy Hogan’s name on the Lewis contacts list raises new questions about Jones’s vetting and hiring. The White House General Counsel is rumored to have raised objections that were overruled by Valerie Jarrett. But what role did Nancy Hogan play?



Patrick Gaspard = ACORN = SEIU = White House political affairs director.

* We know that Patrick Gaspard is the White House political affairs director.
* We know that Patrick Gaspard enjoys the trust of the White House to perform sensitive tasks.
* We know that Patrick Gaspard is in fact one of the most quietly powerful people in this administration.
* We know that Patrick Gaspard was formerly an ACORN higher-up.
* We know that Patrick Gaspard was also formerly affiliated with SEIU.
* We know that Patrick Gaspard was seen by Big Labor as being a payoff for SEIU’s support.
* We know that Patrick Gaspard’s brother Michael represents ACORN (and that ACORN Chief Organizer Bertha Lewis kept contact information for Patrick Gaspard).
* And we know that links between ACORN & SEIU and ACORN & the White House have been minimized, downplayed, and outright sanitized recently.

* What we don’t know yet is whether the White House is going to do the same thing with the ties between SEIU and the White House.

How long before Obama is IMPEACHED?

When's the Next Tea Party?

Many people have asked me when the next tea party protest will be.
There are people organizing protests, the group OPERATION CAN YOU HEAR US NOW is planning to protest media outlets all over the country on October 17th which is a Saturday .

I thought about organizing a rally outside WaPo's DC headquarters, but I think it would have to be held on a weekday to impact them, since thats when all the reporters and editors are there. I decided against it because it's so soon after the incredible 912 March on DC. But this is definitely something to think about...Maybe after the Nov. elections..

But if you or anyone you know wants to organize a rally for Oct 17, at a news station or newspaper, I will do whatever I can to help you including posting here and sending out emails!

So, when's the next event? I think after the Virginia Elections. This election is very important to Obama and the Democrats! They need to win Virginia. Their Thugs at the SEIU and ACORN have been pumping MILLIONS into Virginia.
I know it's not every ones favorite thing to do and I would rather be at a rally sticking a sign in some tax and spend politicians face too, but We need to push the UNIONS back to NYC by getting the Republican team Of McDonnell , Bolling, Cuccinelli and any republican delegate elected.
Could you imagine Cuccinelli ever allowing the SEIU to run Virginia?
HEH!!

Please help out in some way.

This would be Funny if it wasn't so Pathetic

The chief elitist empty suit at Newsweek begins to wonder if Obama is also an empty suit.

guess that hopenchangy thing is losing it's luster over at Newsweek

There is only so much political mileage that can still be had by his reminding the world that he is not George W. Bush. It was the winning theme of the 2008 campaign, but that race ended nearly a year ago. The ex-president is now more ex than ever, yet the current president, who vowed to look forward, is still reaching back to Bush as bogeyman.

He did it again in that U.N. speech. The delegates wanted to know what the president was going to do about Israel and the Palestinian territories. He answered by telling them what his predecessor had failed to do. This was effective for his first month or two. Now it is starting to sound more like an excuse than an explanation.

SEIU and other Useful idiots demand that we surrender in Afghanistan

Didn't we endure 6 years of the left screaming that Iraq was an illegal war and that our resources should be focused on Afghanistan? Well now the left wants to end the war in Afghanistan and they're bringing out their THUGS to make it happen

This was sent out by Progressive Democrats of America. They are having a National Call in day on September 30th to send a message to congress to force Obama to bring the troops home from Afghanistan and Iraq


Don't think this is a small "fringe Lefty group" it is a group that has a lot of congresspeople sitting on their board along with code pinko and a selection of useful idiots from hollywood. and it isn't only one lefty group, the SEIU is involved as well.
http://www.uslaboragainstwar.org/article.php?id=20086


here's progressive America website..
http://www.pdamerica.org/

here's the email they're sending out...

Afghanistan FUNDING!
Congress is close to final passage of the $625.8 billion 2010 Defense Budget, which contains approximately $128.2 billion to conduct the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq through September 2010.
So far the White House has offered no timetable and no "exit strategy" for Afghanistan. On the contrary, General McCrystal is calling for tens of thousands of additional American troops and a long-term commitment, which could tie the United States down in Afghanistan for years to come.
This is the original meaning of a "quagmire"--when every step taken makes it harder and harder to move. At this rate, we will never leave Afghanistan. Members of Congress need to get a powerful message from us that we need a different policy in Afghanistan--one that emphasizes diplomacy and humanitarian assistance. Without a plan to bring the war to an end, Congress should not give another "blank check" to the White House for continued fighting.
Progressive Democrats of America, United for Peace and Justice, CODEPINK, Just Foreign Policy, and Voters for Peace believe that a public outcry is vitally important now, when the Pentagon is exerting pressure on the President and
Congress to escalate a costly, destructive, and ultimately unwinnable war.
Join the National Call-in Day September 30 and tell your Senators to unite with Sen. Russ Feingold and and ask your Congressional Representatives to vote against the 2010 Defense Appropriations bill. When making this call, urge them to cosponsor Congressman James McGovern's H.R. 2404 that would require President Obama to provide an exit plan from Afghanistan no later than December 2009. Prepare for your call by checking the list of co-sponsors of the McGovern bill . Watch Representative McGovern as he calls for an exit strategy and in case you missed it, please sign Tom Hayden's Afghanistan petition here.
Take action on the September 30 National Call-in Day:
No Exit Strategy? Stop the Funding!

Obama going to beg for Chicago Olympics today

How much in taxpayer money do you think Obama will promise the Olympic committee?
Meanwhile at home, Matt Drudge reports this....

FOX-TV CHICAGO ORDERED NOT TO RUN ANTI-OLYMPICS STORY
A local TV station that reported on Chicagoans NOT wanting the Olympics has been told NOT to run the report again, insiders tell the DRUDGE REPORT!
The Chicago Olympic Committee told FOX Chicago that its broadcast "would harm Chicago's chances" to be awarded the games.
The station's news director ordered staff to hold fire after the report aired once last Thursday morning, claims a source.
Chicago, Madrid, Tokyo and Rio are mounting strong bids for the honor to host in 2016.

The International Olympic Committee makes its decision on Friday. President Obama will lead the in-person push.


FOX VIDEO: 'Chicagoans for Rio': Not Everyone in Illinois Wants the 2016 Olympics


Imagine all the federal money that can be funneled to Obama's Chicago conections under the guise of "the olympics"

The Commander in Chief who wasn't

Since Obama obviously doesn't want the job, he should step down.

Asked how often he talks to the president, McChrystal said, "I've talked to the president since I've been here once on a VTC."
"You talked to him once in 70 days?" Martin asked.
"That's correct," McChrystal replied.

527 Organizations

What is a 527 Group?

These groups — organized under section 527 of the Internal Revenue Code — raise money for political activity such as voter mobilization and issue advocacy. As long as they stop short of expressly advocating the election or defeat of a specific federal candidate, 527 groups are not subject to contribution limits imposed by the Federal Elections Commission. 527s have become a convenient way for corporations, labor unions and special interests to flow unlimited contributions into the political process.

The 2009 Virginia elections are the first test of a state law aimed at bringing greater transparency to 527 activities in state politics.

AFL-CIO Committee on Political Education (Washington, DC)

SEIU, OBAMA and VIRGINIA DEMOCRATS

Kathleen Parker unravels part of SEIU and ACORN's web
ACORN and Its Political Seed

Wade Rathke, co-founder of ACORN and founder of SEIU Local 100 in New Orleans. Rathke, who resigned from ACORN last year as "chief organizer" after it became known that his brother embezzled almost $1 million from the association, continues to run Local 100, as well as ACORN International, recently renamed Community Organizations International.

One needn't be a mathematician to imagine what a national health-care option might mean to a union in search of new dues-paying recruits. The SEIU, which has promised "to fight tooth and nail" for a public option, is demonstrably persuasive. In Illinois, former governor Blagojevich (thank you for your patience) helped position the SEIU so that it could unionize health-care workers when he signed an executive order allowing collective bargaining. The SEIU showed its appreciation in advance by becoming Blagojevich's largest contributor, handing over $1.8 million for his two gubernatorial campaigns.

And guess which Party in Virginia benefits from SEIU

If Democrats lose Virginia or New Jersey, they can't pass Obamacare

Why the 6-Week Deadline for Health Care Matters

“The 6-week frame is not an accident, because something happens in 6 weeks: elections. If Democrats lose big gubernatorial races in New Jersey and Virginia, that could produce a new wave of jitters among already skittish Congressional swing Democrats. That’s one of the extraneous factors left out of some sophisticated positive assessments of the bill’s chances. Better to get it done before the ax might fall. ”

"I guess that means that people who don’t support health care reform — or people who do — should get involved in the New Jersey and Virginia elections... instapundit

Jim LeMunyon to hold Town Hall Meetings

Jim LeMunyon, who is running against incumbent Chuck Caputo in the 67th district, will be holding two town hall meetings to answer questions from voters. Mr LeMunyon is holding Town Hall meeting because Mr Caputo refused to answer LeMunyons 3 letters requesting a debate.
" A debate would have allowed voters to interview us side by side, but Chick refused our offers to debate without proposing any alternatives. Chuck may want to skip the interview, but I don't" said LeMunyon.

Maybe Chuck Caputo doesn't want to discuss his Voting Record!
Or why so many UNIONS have donated to his campaign.

Doug Wilder refuses to endorse Deeds!

This has got to hurt!
Doug Wilder whacks Deeds

Former Virginia Gov. Doug Wilder, the state's first and only black governor, has declined to endorse Democratic candidate Creigh Deeds. Wilder withheld his endorsement even after President Obama intervened on Deeds' behalf through a telephone call.
Wilder also indirectly attacked Deeds for supporting tax increases to help fund transportation projects in the commonwealth. Deeds wrote an op-ed in yesterday’s Washington Post declaring his support for a “dedicated funding mechanism for transportation -- even if it includes new taxes.”

Wilder’s response? “This is not the time in our Commonwealth to talk about any kind of tax increase, especially those that are fundamentally regressive and will hit hardest those who are struggling."

Ohhhhh someone get Deeds some ice!

Here is what David Possin can't run from... His voting record

Like most democrats, He loves to raise taxes and dump government regulations all over everything.

Know what else Mr Possin can't run from? His Chicago Connections!

Possin was chief of staff and counsel to then Representative, now Assistant Senate Majority Leader Richard J. Durbin of Illinois, who in this video compares our troops to Nazi's, Soviets in their Gulags and then voted to cut off funding to our troops while we were at war!

Obama to UN, I'm sorry America sucks so much

Here are just some his assinine remarks.

I am well aware of the expectations that accompany my presidency around the world. These expectations are not about me.

America has acted unilaterally, without regard for the interests of others. And this has fed an almost reflexive anti-Americanism, which too often has served as an excuse for collective inaction.

On my first day in office, I prohibited - without exception or equivocation - the use of torture by the United States of America. I ordered the prison at Guantanamo Bay closed, and we are doing the hard work of forging a framework to combat extremism within the rule of law.

In Moscow, the United States and Russia announced that we would pursue substantial reductions in our strategic warheads and launchers."


It goes on and on, The man has no understanding of world or American history.He put America on the same level as a third world country. He threw Israel and other allies under the bus, He joined hands with America's enemies!
This man who was elected to represent the people of the USA does not like us nor does he respect our country.
.
here is the full text of his surrender

DanRiehl writes..
America Has No President, For Now
as loyal and patriotic Americans, we should have only two goals: to endure the unthoughtful shame and suffering of having this inexperienced, undemocratic boy king in the White House; and preparing to vanquish as many Democrats from Congress as we can in 2010.
That and nothing else is the only acceptable and ultimately American way of dealing with the tragic American political mistake Barack Obama truly is.

Are the Democrats going to take over newspapers next?

Congressional Hearing on the Future of Newspapers Set For Thursday

Rep. Carolyn B. Maloney (D-N.Y.)

"I am holding the Joint Economic Committee hearing to examine the importance of newspapers to our democracy throughout our nation's history and the treacherous economic landscape they face," Maloney wrote in a statement to E&P. "The witnesses will review alternative funding options for newspapers in our new and ever-changing electronic age. Since the ratification of the Bill of Rights, the federal government has acknowledged that the press is an institution which is afforded special protections by name. In this spirit, I think that the government can help foster solutions for this industry in ways which protect the independence of newspapers and enables their objective reporting to thrive in a new economic and media climate."

Will Obama greet them? Obama snubbed Christians and Jews on the day of pray and he ignored the 912 march on DC so it will be interesting to see if he acknowledges this "gathering"

Imagine if Obama bailed out the NYT

The president said he is "happy to look at" bills before Congress that would give struggling news organizations tax breaks if they were to restructure as nonprofit businesses.

Obama said that good journalism is "critical to the health of our democracy," but expressed concern toward growing tends in reporting -- especially on political blogs, from which a groundswell of support for his campaign emerged during the presidential election.

"I am concerned that if the direction of the news is all blogosphere, all opinions, with no serious fact-checking, no serious attempts to put stories in context, that what you will end up getting is people shouting at each other across the void but not a lot of mutual understanding," he said

( this guy has no shame)


btw do ya think the Washington Times or the NY Post is on Obama's list for a bailout?

we're so screwed

STEPHANOPOULOS: I -- I don't think I'm making it up. Merriam Webster's Dictionary: Tax -- "a charge, usually of money, imposed by authority on persons or property for public purposes."

OBAMA: George, the fact that you looked up Merriam's Dictionary, the definition of tax increase, indicates to me that you're stretching a little bit right now. Otherwise, you wouldn't have gone to the dictionary to check on the definition. I mean what...



How can anyone take this president seriously? Talking heads keep telling us how very smart Obama is, honestly, I've yet to see any evidence of his intelligence.

Steele ‘curious’ that W.H. asks black governor to not seek reelection

Michael Steele Wonders why Obama is throwing a Black Governor under the bus.

The Hill Reports

“I found that to be stunning, that the White House would send word to one of only two black governors in the country not to run for reelection,” Steele, the chairman of the Republican National Committee (RNC), said on CBS’s Face The Nation.
“That will be very interesting to see what the response by black leadership around the country for the president calling Gov. Paterson to step down,” Steele said.


Who do you suppose Obama wants to put into the NY Governors chair? Who does he owe favors to in New York?

Obama still LIES


Obama on ACORN: 'OBAMA: You know, it’s — frankly, it’s not really something I’ve followed closely. I didn’t even know that ACORN was getting a whole lot of federal money.
Michelle Malkin doesn't let him get away with it.
She writes..

1) How Team Obama hid its $800,000 campaign payment to ACORN through front group “Citizen Services, Inc.”;
2) How Team Obama shared donor lists with the president’s old employer, ACORN affiliate Project Vote, a 501(c)(3) organization, which is prohibited from engaging in political activity (Mr. President, meet Anita MonCrief);
3) And how Project Vote and hundreds of myriad entities intermingled non-profit, tax-exempt funding with the national ACORN flagship’s political operations — a buried story Obama would know about if he read NYTimes reporter Stephanie Strom’s report last October before she was muzzled as Election Day drew near.

Ken Cuccinelli Lectures Steve Shannon on integrity

State Senator Ken Cuccinelli, Republican Nominee for Attorney General called on his Democrat opponent today to return any and all campaign contributions to his campaign from the Service Employees International Union or SEIU and condemn all ACORN activity.

"Steve Shannon has received tens of thousands of dollars in campaign contributions from the SEIU - whose link and close working relationship with the renegade organization ACORN is well documented" said Senator Ken Cuccinelli. "SEIU's long standing financial support and its affiliation as an allied organization of ACORN across the country requires a repudiation of the relationship" added Cuccinelli.

"I applaud the United States Congress for moving to de-fund ACORN of any tax payer dollars, a move that should have occurred years ago. ACORN's well documented illegal activities, including voter fraud, should give all Americans pause. Voters have a right to know that ACORN affiliated and allied organizations are funding Democrat campaigns this year in Virginia, and what do they expect in return?" concluded Cuccinelli.

ya know what would be a hot presidential ticket? Cuccinelli and Palin!
ohh baby! now that would really make liberal butts twitch! hehe

Brezinski Calls for Obama to Shoot Down Israeli Jets

Zbigniew Brzezinski advises Obama on foreign policy.
the Weekly Standard reports

In a little noticed interview with the Daily Beast (presumably little noticed because serious people don't read the Daily Beast), Zbigniew Brzezinski suggests that Barack Obama do more than just refuse to support an Israeli strike on Iran's nuclear sites -- the American president must give the order to shoot down Israeli aircraft as they cross Iraqi airspace:

DB: How aggressive can Obama be in insisting to the Israelis that a military strike might be in America’s worst interest?

Brzezinski: We are not exactly impotent little babies. They have to fly over our airspace in Iraq. Are we just going to sit there and watch?

DB: What if they fly over anyway?

Brzezinski: Well, we have to be serious about denying them that right. That means a denial where you aren’t just saying it. If they fly over, you go up and confront them. They have the choice of turning back or not. No one wishes for this but it could be a Liberty in reverse.

So conjure the image -- the Obama administration sending U.S. aircraft up to protect Iran's airspace and it's nuclear installations from an attack by a democracy that is one of America's closest allies. Unfortunately, this may not be so hard to imagine in Israel, where the number of people who believe Obama is pro-Israel is at just 4 percent -- and falling. And given Obama's (literally) submissive posture to the Saudis, his indulgence of the Iranians, and his simultaneously hard-line approach to Israel, it seems even some of Obama's supporters can savor the possibility of a "reverse Liberty."

Virginia Moves Back to the Right

Republicans are competitive here again after a string of losses. Is Obama the reason?
Fred Barnes at the WSJ writes

"A Republican victory here would signal that Mr. Obama may now be a liability for other Democrats running for office—or at least a neutral force incapable of transferring his support. For example, a Survey USA poll from earlier this month found that 13% of Obama voters from last year plan to vote for Mr. McDonnell this year."

Dirty Money

Republican Party of Virginia Chairman Pat Mullins today called on all three statewide candidates on the Democratic ticket, plus all relevant Democratic political entities, to return all contributions received from the Service Employees International Union, a big labor group closely affiliated with the scandal-plagued organization ACORN. SEIU President Andy Stern sits on ACORN's advisory council. Combined, SEIU has contributed nearly $450,000 to Democratic candidates or Democratic Party committees in 2008 and 2009.

Dontcha think Creigh Deeds, Jody Wagner, and Steve Shannon should return the contribution ACORN and the SEIU made to their campaigns?

She's Baack

Michelle Obama is back singing a new tune, but luckily Michelle Malkin has a long memory

While a top executive at the hospital, Mrs. Obama helped engineer the plan to offload low-income patients with non-urgent health needs. Under the Orwellian banner of an “Urban Health Initiative,” Mrs. Obama sold the scheme to outsource low-income care to other facilities as a way to “dramatically improve health care for thousands of South Side residents.” The program guaranteed “free” shuttle rides to and from the outside clinics.

Michelle Obama: US Health Care Is 'Unacceptable'


On a side note, I'd really like to know who dresses Mrs Obama. They should be banned for life from Fashion.

Time to call Senators Webb and Warner

The Senate rejected an amendment today offered by Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC) to stop transportation subsidies for the John Murtha Airport in Johnstown, PA.


KEY FACTS

Named the John Murtha Airport, 650-acre state-of-the-art facility in Johnstown, PA
Received $200 million in federal funds over 20 years, $150 million steered by Murtha himself, who uses the airport for campaign stops
Only 3 flights daily, to only one destination: Washington, D.C. (Dulles airport)
Averages 20 passengers daily
Received $800,000 in stimulus funds this year to repave a backup runway, even though the airport manager says there are no safety issues with the current runway
Has an $8.5 million radar system paid for by taxpayers, that remains unstaffed and unused
Airport passenger count has fallen by 50% in the past 10 years, as federal funds continue to pour in
Federal funds subsidize every flight into the airport, an average of $100 per passenger on each flight
Despite these facts, 53 Senators voted to continue using taxpayer money to fund Murtha's pork project.


Call Webb and Warner and ask them to explain themselves.

Toxic & Twisted Suburban Housewives

Having been a suburban housewife on the receiving end of vicious gossip and catty, juvenile behavior, I need to unload.

You know the kind of woman I'm talking about. They're petty, small minded, unhappy, jealous women who get off on the sport of destroying other women's reputations. Hell, there are now so many of them living in neighborhoods all over the US, that BRAVO has 4 reality shows based on these kind of women.

It's a funny thing...when you turn your scorn and hatred on other women the way this kind of woman does, you do get some short term support from your friends and acquaintances, Far too many women love a good drama and like believing the worst of other women, but in the back of their minds they know that the woman spreading the hatred and toxic gossip is not really to be trusted.

CHARACTER IS DESTINY

There is a woman in my neighborhood who is so toxic with hatred & jealously of other women, destroying them and even their children's reputation is sport to her. She is so manipulative and twisted that when confronted, she plays the victim. There isn't a woman I know of who hasn't at one time or another been the target of her scorn, lies and character assassinations.

Women who lie and engage in these kind of character assassinations and behaviors are obviously very unhappy insecure women and deserve our pity. However, do yourself a favor and pity them from a distance.

House votes to cut off funding for ACORN

The House of Representatives just voted overwhelmingly to de-fund ACORN, 345-75. The vote came on a Republican motion to recommit the educational loan bill. As a result, the anti-ACORN provision made it into the House-passed bill.
Below are the names of Virginia's congressmen who voted to preserve ACORN's stream of funding.

give these scabs a call

Jim Moran, D-Va.: (202) 225-4376

Bobby Scott, D-Va.(202) 225-8351


AND BTW.. With This Bill Congress, just handed over Student Loans to the very partisan BOARD OF EDUCATION.

so now the democrats not only control who gets mortgages , who hands them out and at what rate, they also control student loans.

The senate still has to vote on it

Obama scrapping missile shield for Czech, Poland
– President Barack Hussein Obama has decided to scrap plans for a U.S. missile defense shield in the Czech Republic and Poland that had deeply angered Russia, the Czech prime minister confirmed Thursday.
Under the plan, which had been proposed by the Bush administration to defend the United States and its European allies against a possible missile attack from Iran or elsewhere in the Middle East, 10 interceptor rockets were to have been stationed in Poland and a radar system based in the Czech Republic.

Russia was livid over the prospect of having U.S. interceptor rockets in countries so close to its territory, and Obama wants to kiss the Kremlin's ass since he's a commie bastard and wants to destroy all democratic run countries, including his own.

Be afraid people, be very afraid.


UPDATE Eastern Europeans are very worried.

Liberals can't handle the color of Obama's skin

RUSH LIMBAUGH yesterday..

"There was no scrutiny of his resume. We still don't know some of the records, haven't seen some of the records from where he went to school, just like we didn't see Clinton's medical records. We have not seen scrutiny of his background. There was no scrutiny of his past performance. He's got five-minute career, essentially, 185 days working in the US Senate. There was very little scrutiny of his campaign. There is very little scrutiny of what he says. There was a lot of praise for how he says what he says, but there was never any scrutiny of what he said, and there isn't today. So when any of these checks and balances are MIA, whenever this scrutiny of a presidential candidate does not take place, our nation is headed for trouble. And we are in trouble. When all of these aspects are ignored, when none of this scrutiny takes place, we are in deep, deep trouble, and that's where we are.

I have no quarrel with a president of any race. Obama is not black to me. He's not half black, half white. He's president of the United States, and as such, given his agenda, he poses a grave danger to the American I believe in. And that's all that matters to me. I couldn't care if he's a hermaphrodite. I don't care who he sleeps with. I don't care where he eats. I don't care what he eats. I don't care how he drives. I don't care about any of that. I don't care about his haircut. I don't care whether he's getting gray. I don't care about his tie. I don't care about any of this. I care about his intent to remake this country into a country unlike any of us have ever seen. I have serious concerns about today's media and their new standard, which is this: Any criticism of an African-American president's policies or statements or misstatements is racist, and that's it.

Therefore the question: Can this nation really have an African-American president? Or will the fact that we have an African-American president so paralyze politically correct people in the media that the natural scrutiny and process through which all of our presidents are put through and vetted do not occur because of the fear in the State-Controlled Media of themselves being called racist and the desire to be able to call everyone else racist. In other words, we have a blank slate. We have a president here who is not scrutinized, who is not examined. There is no attempt to be suspicious of power anymore. So is it possible that we really have an African-American president? Or does having an African-American president paralyze the process by which people with that kind of power in our representative republic are kept, quote, unquote, honest? I have a brief timeout here at which time I'm either going to explode in rage or I'm going to fix this audio problem, because I already started out in rage. This racism stuff has got everybody boiling mad because it's such a lie; it's such a cheap shot; it's so dishonest".

What a bitter, partisan article.

CA Democrat Congresswoman wants to use the MEDIA to question "teabaggers"

Democrat Congresswoman from California wants WHITE CONSERVATIVE Americans investigated and questioned for racism at Tea Parties because they oppose president Obama's policies

Maxine Waters : Probe 'birthers and the teabaggers' at rallies for racist views

The media should investigate the racial views of conservative activists like the ones who descended on Washington last weekend, one liberal congresswoman said Wednesday.

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) said that it's not enough for African-Americans to levy allegations of racism against the right-leaning protesters, and that the media must look into their views.

"I want those people talked to; I want them interviewed," Waters told the liberal Bill Press Radio show in a podcast. "I want journalists to be all over those rallies and the marches with the birthers and the teabaggers."

"What I'm looking for is the very people who carry the signs who are referring to the policies in very, very strange ways like 'Obamacare' and 'Barry Obamacare with Kennedy,'" she said. "What I've been interested in is hearing from those people that everybody's referring to -- everybody on the Mall, in the rally."

Tens of thousands of conservative activists took to the National Mall last weekend to protest the Obama administration, specifically its stance on healthcare reform. Examples of incendiary rhetoric touching on racial overtones from some protesters have emerged on blogs in the days since the rally.

"I think it's not enough for African-Americans to say what they think, what they suspect," Waters said. "I think that if you put the microphones in front of them, if you do the interviews, they'll tell you what they believe, what they think."

Don't hold your breath waiting for Ms Waters to be reprimanded on the floor of the House. I'm sure the media will be doing exactly what she wants. Many "journalists" are already accusing everyone at Tea Parties of racism. I'm sure this is not going to stop. Do you think the PRESIDENT who was going to bring us all together, will speak out against those who are calling us Racists? Neither do I

Who's the Racist?

Rep Hank Johnson: Joe Wilson's Comments Will Lead To "White Hoods"

Obama, the leader of his party, the one who transends race, remains silent as usual.

Obama loves to be loved

Mr Obama loves being in front of the camera, loves the adoration of the "media" and seems to hate the job of actually running the country.

He will be all over TV again this week.

Good Grief, When do you suppose he'll find his way into the oval office and begin to govern?

I think the president, those in office and much of the media, is of the opinion that "we the people" are stupid. We the People are NOT stupid and 1 MILLION of us showed up on Saturday to let them know it!

The President, his administration and all the other politicians who forgot who they work for are making fools of themselves.

The media in their disgraceful display of partisanship are not doing their "chosen one" any favors. I find their kid glove treatment of Mr Obama condescending, patronizing and insulting. At one time I wondered how President Obama felt about never being challenged. Wouldn't a intelligent man welcome challenges to his ideas? When Joe Wilson shouted out "You LIE" the president got angry and it took a moment for him to compose himself. This showed a weakness in him that no Leader should have. I also have to wonder why he allows his lap dogs to continue to play the race card simply for opposing the President's policies.

Most of those in the media and entertainment industry are proving themselves to be useless idiots who are willing to pimp out their integrity.


It's been painful to watch this at times, but I believe that this was something that needed to happen.The PEOPLE needed to wake up and take notice of what was happening to their country.

Washington and the MSM needs to be purged of it's toxic waste.
It will be interesting to see who's left standing in 2013

Which will you choose?

CHOICES

The individual choices we make in life are a direct reflection of our values and make up the foundation of our character. It is our choices which define who we really are, more than any other factor.
During the current health care debate, hardly a day goes by that we do not hear from those who believe they are morally superior to the rest of us, that this issue "concerns more than material things"...that it is "above all a moral issue; at stake are not just the details of policy, but fundamental principles of social justice and the character of our country."
Indeed, the moral choices we the people make on this issue will say a lot about the character of our country.

So it comes down to this in the health care debate: Independence and Freedom vs Dependence and Tyranny.

Obama lied, the poor and elderly will die, with or without Obamacare

Medicare facing cancer, cardiac care cuts

Reimbursements for oncologists and cardiologists are on the federal government's chopping block in the next six weeks.


If enacted as scheduled on Jan. 1, 2010, policy changes recommended by the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) -- the government's insurer for the elderly and disabled -- will severely cut current Medicare reimbursements to cardiologists and oncologists for critical care services that are provided to patients in physicians' offices or other out-of-hospital setting, such as chemotherapy to treat cancer, and various cardiac procedures to monitor and treat heart disease, such as nuclear imaging and heart catheterization.

These cuts will force cardiologists and oncologists to limit care to their Medicare patients, withdraw from treating Medicare patients altogether or require their patients to pay more out of pocket to make up the difference in the cost of these services.

Unless these proposed changes are rescinded, current and future cardiac and cancer care patients will suffer the consequences, especially in rural areas where the proportion of Medicare patients is exceptionally high and patients have fewer choices of health care providers.

Moving Terrorist Detainees to Virginia

By Ken Cuccinelli

According to the Washington Post, the Obama Administration is pushing to transfer some of the terrorist detainees currently held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba into the Commonwealth of Virginia for trial in a U.S. federal criminal court. (See Daily Virginia Roundup, The Washington Post, 08/04/09; Security Worries in the Suburbs, The Washington Post, 03/25/09) The Post has speculated that these detainees may be tried in the federal courts in Alexandria. However, regardless of exactly where in Virginia these detainees end up, I am strongly opposed to the idea of bringing any of these terrorists into the Commonwealth, and even more strongly opposed to the very concept of using criminal prosecution to fight the War Against Terrorism. I believe this Administration plan, if implemented, would: ignore the benefit of using Guantanamo Bay; impede our conduct in that war; be cost-prohibitive to our government and physically dangerous to our citizenry; be largely ineffective in punishing these terrorists; and be totally unprecedented in U.S. history. And as Attorney General of Virginia, I promise that I will do all that I can to stop the Administration from implementing this plan.

Last night I attended a event hosted by a new conservative group in Virginia called the Virginia Liberty Project. This group will be a force in Virginia politics. Kay Coles, the Gloucester Institutes Founder and President is involved as are many other notable Virginia Conservatives. Since I'm new to Virginia politics I don't know many of the key people, but I'm not so clueless that I don't know Kay Coles. Even though this is a brand new group their key note speakers were Liz Cheney and Kate Obenshain! If they wanted to impress me and get me fired up to get involved in this grassroots group, they succeeded! Kate gave a great speech on the constitution, and Liz Cheney gave a wonderful talk about Obama's policies and what kind of dangerous changes are taking place.
Their message is to have neighbors and friends get together to discuss current events and get involved in the process.

SEPTEMBER 11

Don't go through today as if it was another day. Say a prayer for the souls of those who were brutally murdered. Say a prayer for their loved ones and children. Say a prayer for our country
PRESIDENT BUSH:

Today, our fellow citizens, our way of life, our very freedom came under attack in a series of deliberate and deadly terrorist acts. The victims were in airplanes or in their offices. Secretaries, business men and women, military and federal workers. Moms and dads. Friends and neighbors.
Thousands of lives were suddenly ended by evil, despicable acts of terror.
The pictures of airplanes flying into buildings, fires burning, huge structures collapsing, have filled us with disbelief, terrible sadness and a quiet, unyielding anger.
These acts of mass murder were intended to frighten our nation into chaos and retreat. But they have failed. Our country is strong. A great people has been moved to defend a great nation.
Terrorist attacks can shake the foundations of our biggest buildings, but they cannot touch the foundation of America. These acts shatter steel, but they cannot dent the steel of American resolve.
America was targeted for attack because we're the brightest beacon for freedom and opportunity in the world. And no one will keep that light from shining.
Today, our nation saw evil, the very worst of human nature, and we responded with the best of America, with the daring of our rescue workers, with the caring for strangers and neighbors who came to give blood and help in any way they could.
Immediately following the first attack, I implemented our government's emergency response plans. Our military is powerful, and it's prepared. Our emergency teams are working in New York City and Washington, D.C., to help with local rescue efforts.
Our first priority is to get help to those who have been injured and to take every precaution to protect our citizens at home and around the world from further attacks.
The functions of our government continue without interruption. Federal agencies in Washington, which had to be evacuated today, are reopening for essential personnel tonight and will be open for business tomorrow.
Our financial institutions remain strong, and the American economy will be open for business as well.
The search is under way for those who are behind these evil acts. I've directed the full resources for our intelligence and law enforcement communities to find those responsible and bring them to justice. We will make no distinction between the terrorists who committed these acts and those who harbor them.
I appreciate so very much the members of Congress who have joined me in strongly condemning these attacks. And on behalf of the American people, I thank the many world leaders who have called to offer their condolences and assistance.
America and our friends and allies join with all those who want peace and security in the world and we stand together to win the war against terrorism.
Tonight I ask for your prayers for all those who grieve, for the children whose worlds have been shattered, for all whose sense of safety and security has been threatened. And I pray they will be comforted by a power greater than any of us spoken through the ages in Psalm 23: "Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil for
you are with me."
This is a day when all Americans from every walk of life unite in our resolve for justice and peace. America has stood down enemies before, and we will do so this time.
None of us will ever forget this day, yet we go forward to defend freedom and all that is good and just in our world.
Thank you. Good night and God bless America.

Sarah Palin Responds to Obama's Speech

Response to the President's Health Care Speech

After all the rhetoric is put aside, one principle ran through President Obama’s speech tonight: that increased government involvement in health care can solve its problems.

Many Americans fundamentally disagree with this idea. We know from long experience that the creation of a massive new bureaucracy will not provide us with “more stability and security,” but just the opposite. It's hard to believe the President when he says that this time he and his team of bureaucrats have finally figured out how to do things right if only we’ll take them at their word.

Our objections to the Democrats’ health care proposals are not mere “bickering” or “games.” They are not an attempt to “score short term political points.” And it’s hard to listen to the President lecture us not to use “scare tactics” when in the next breath he says that “more will die” if his proposals do not pass.

In his speech the President directly responded to concerns I’ve raised about unelected bureaucrats being given power to make decisions affecting life or death health care matters. He called these concerns “bogus,” “irresponsible,” and “a lie” -- so much for civility. After all the name-calling, though, what he did not do is respond to the arguments we’ve made, arguments even some of his own supporters have agreed have merit.

In fact, after promising to “make sure that no government bureaucrat .... gets between you and the health care you need,” the President repeated his call for an Independent Medicare Advisory Council -- an unelected, largely unaccountable group of bureaucrats charged with containing Medicare costs. He did not disavow his own statement that such a group, working outside of “normal political channels,” should guide decisions regarding that “huge driver of cost ... the chronically ill and those toward the end of their lives....” He did not disavow the statements of his health care advisor, Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, and continuing to pay his salary with taxpayer dollars proves a commitment to his beliefs. The President can keep making unsupported assertions, but until he directly responds to the arguments I’ve made, I’m going to call him out too.

It was heartening to hear the President finally recognize that tort reform is an important part of any solution. But this concession shouldn’t lead us to take our eye off the ball: the Democrats’ proposals will not reduce costs, and they will not deliver better health care. It’s this kind of “healthy skepticism of government” that truly reflects a “concern and regard for the plight of others.” We can’t wait to hear the details on that; we look forward to working with you on tort reform.

Finally, President Obama delivered an offhand applause line tonight about the cost of the War on Terror. As we approach the anniversary of the September 11th attacks and honor those who died that day and those who have died since in the War on Terror, in order to secure our freedoms, we need to remember their sacrifices and not demonize them as having had too high a price tag.

Remember, Mr. President, elected officials work for the people. Forcing a conclusion in order to claim a “victory” is not healthy for our country. We hear you say government isn’t always the answer; now hear us -- that’s what we’ve been saying all along.

- Sarah Palin

It's NOT about HealthCare




IT'S ABOUT CREATING STRONGER UNIONS

from BIG GOVERNMENT

Among the SEIU sops in the bill are vast new funding mechanisms for home health care organizations. The union has focused on unionizing home health care workers and now the taxpayers will provide hundreds of millions each year to pay these new union members.
The bill also provides $10 billion in direct taxpayer subsidies to pay health care costs for retired union members. This foists the every increasing health care cost of no-longer productive members off on the treasury.

In addition, it sets up all sorts of government bodies to micro-manage the health care industry to the advantage of labor. These bodies will make regulations for the workplace, training and wage levels. They will also serve as “diversity panels” and will be empowered to seek appropriate participation in health care jobs for disadvantaged groups. Buried in Title II, Part 3, Subtitle D of the bill is the requirement that the HHS panel that will set standards for health care employment must have union (read SEIU, the biggest health industry union) representation.

The bill also ties big piles of grant money to unionization. In Title V, Subtitle D, which funds grants for nurse training, the bill limits eligibility for funding to employers that “provides wages and benefits to its nurses…that have been collectively bargain with a labor organization.”
These little set asides tucked away in the bill will strengthen SEIU’s hand by helping it unionize more of the health care workforce and provide billions in funding for those new union jobs. They also allow labor to infiltrate the regulatory process and push for further advantages.

The simple truth is that for the single biggest advocacy bloc pushing the health care bill, your health is the furthest thing from their mind. Their objective is to use the bill to make it easier to unionize health care workers, which certainly won’t enhance patient care, and to advance the larger goals of organized labor as a whole, and use the resulting debt from the administration to push through the noxious “card check” bill through despite public opposition.

If you are physically able to walk in the March, we would like you to begin gathering at Freedom Plaza at 9:00 am.

We will march from Freedom Plaza to the West Lawn of the Capitol. At Freedom Plaza (1350 Pennsylvania Ave NW, Washington, DC 20004
Metro Center Red, Blue and Orange lines; Federal Triangle Blue and Orange lines), we will line up by state according to this LIST.

There will be speakers at Freedom Plaza, many of whom are Tea Party Patriots Local Coordinators, prior to marching. The March ends and the Rally will officially begin at 1:00 at the West Lawn of the Capitol. To accommodate as many speaker and musician requests as possible, there will also be speakers on the West Lawn before the official start time at 1:00 but the exact start time of these speakers and entertainers has not been determined. It will be dependent on how quickly the staging and audio equipment will be setup.

Obama, King of the Universe !

CHANGE!

OBAMA to chair a Security Council meeting — and pander to rogue states.

from national review
A brutalized Iranian population, yearning for democracy, has repeatedly been met by nothing but sad faces from this administration. An Iranian president installed by treachery has been legitimized by American recognition of his government, a decision that has sidelined other eminently justifiable alternatives. The leaders of this state sponsor of terrorism aim to annihilate the Jewish state and are on the verge of acquiring the means to do so. But instead of making the isolation and delegitimation of Iran the top priority for America’s turn at the council presidency, the Obama administration has taken Iran off the table at precisely the time when top decision-makers will be present.

Even allied council members France and the United Kingdom are reported to be very unhappy with Obama’s no-names strategy for his September rollout.
