 So, what IS the Truth???               8-22-2012


    Here we go again, the Chatham Rag openly displays their bias against the Truth Fighters. Get a LIFE, Gail Heinsohn.  The article she wrote and the editor allowed to be published was SO one-sided and inaccurate, they deserve to be sued. FIRST of all, I tape-record EVERY Town Board Meeting, so I can PROVE what was said and when it was said, and by WHOM it was said. That being confirmed, let's look at how Mrs. Heinsohn headlined and opened her article. 

          An attack on the poor Supervisor that was not there to defend himself. LOL! Mike Benson did not advertise the fact that he was going AWAY for the SECOND time in his short 7 months as Supervisor. Not being mind-readers, were we the public expected to know he would be absent? Further, does Gail think that had Benson been present, we would have been "Intimidated" and not broached the tough subjects? Fat chance. We were disappointed that Benson was absent as we WANTED him to be the one to answer for the violations, not his little court-jester, Clark. By the way Gail, you should know by now that there is no "E" at the end of Clark.

       The first sentence of the article claims that we, particularly ME, had violated Robert's Rules of Order, making it sound as if we had interrupted and disturbed the meeting process. NOT TRUE. Everyone who commented waited politely for Privilege of the Floor and had signed up to speak. FACT! My comment that I was not "Finished Yet" was made as a result of Clark interrupting ME while I had the floor!  FACT!  Heinsohn also stated in this article that if the local Ethics Board is dissolved, the responsibility will fall to the "Court". WRONG!  The court HAS ethics problems, they do not investigate them. If we dissolve, the complaints will go to the "Columbia County Ethics Board". I have them pretty busy already, in fact.  Get it RIGHT,Gail! 

        Her personal feelings come through in this article and her one-sided opinions are unprofessional of a reporter. Reporters are to report the FACTS as they happened, not place their own spin on things. This is why a RESIDENT of the town should not be the reporter for the town. Ah, but what can you expect of a liberal rag?

       They want to talk Libel? How about Gail's comments about Scott Larabee having had "Job Deficiencies". The missing word there Gail, is "Alleged".  THAT is Libel! Where Benson and Clark are concerned, every charge made against them in that meeting is factual and supportable.  The Commander case has indeed been verbally thrown out, the next court appearance is simply to submit the accusatory instrument so the case can be officially closed.  FACT!

     Now, I want to know what Gail, her liberal friends and her sleazy editors, think about the behaviors and actions of a Town Supervisor that will look you in the eye and LIE to you? That will collude with Doug Clark and then run away on vacation leaving Clark holding the bag when things get hot?  READ THIS CAREFULLY GAIL:  Michael Benson lied to Howard Commander. He LIED about a  "Unanimous" Town Board vote to serve Commander a summons, but the vote NEVER HAPPENED! Do you not get the seriousness of that? He then called Commander on the phone and apologized, blaming it on Doug Clark! WOW! Such Integrity! 

      Clark is not un-deserving of Benson's throwing him in, he lied as well, which is no surprise, Clark is a Habitual Liar. I caught him in a lie TWICE in this ONE meeting! First he lied about ordering the ZEO to serve Commander. Clark not only ordered him ONCE, he did it TWICE. Then he lied about the construction crew not working for 2 full weeks. He claimed to have known that the workers were waiting for the delivery of trusses. FACT is, that until the day before the meeting, Clark admitted to having NO CLUE as to why the workers were missing, and had to call them on the 13th to get an answer in time for the meeting.  WHY does he feel the need to LIE? There was nothing objectionable about the truth and it is so much safer and more honorable.

       The allegations made by Robert Smith against Mike Benson are also factual, supportable and "Collusive". The Town Board voted to put "Out-to-Bid" the painting job at the park. Once that vote is confirmed, that is THAT! For the Supervisor to then solicit "private" bids on his own, constitutes collusion and a unilateral decision and action taken against board decisions. BIG, BIG no-no! To make matters even worse, Benson then made the HIRE on his own as well. Wanna talk about Robert's Rules NOW Gail? He also deliberately did not consult the Park Superintendent about ANY of it. It is the Park Super that is authorized to hire and fire park workers, NOT the Supervisor! 

        We are sick and tired of Gail Heinsohn and her inability to do her job in an impartial manner. She should NOT be the reporter for the town she resides in unless she is going to do her job fairly and professionally. Obviously, she is incapable of doing so. 

        Doug Clark did NOT ask me to "Desist" either, Gail. I had the floor and he was attempting to speak OVER me and I objected. That is my right. Yes, I KNOW that the board does not HAVE to allow a Privilege of the Floor if they vote not to, however, I would LOVE to see the public reaction if they attempt to remove it!  I also want to be sure to repeat myself re: the comments of "Attorney Max Gitter". HE is another bottom-feeding lawyer that would sell his mama to win a case and make a buck. That comment was SO deplorable, so void of integrity and maturity that it should have made the "GOOD" people in the room vomit! By repeating that immoral comment, you Gail, have supported Gitter's lack of character. Nice Goin'! 

          I have a little more negative info on Gitter that I am hoarding for future use. It is nearly impossible for me to sit in these meetings and watch so-called intelligent adults, roll their eyes and make nasty comments about those of us who are standing for what is RIGHT and HONORABLE. Please notice that the liberal loonies that think everything Benson and Clark do is okay, are the MAJORITY! There are very FEW, honest members of the public that are demanding a clean local government, and that is SO sad, SO indicative of what America has become at the hands of the Libs and Dems. You should all be ashamed of yourselves for excusing and supporting CRIME and CORRUPTION. I have ZERO respect for the lot of you. 

           So, if anyone out there wishes to challenge what I have said here, or wants to see or hear the PROOF of the charges leveled at the meeting, feel free to contact us at the number and email given on the front page of this website. We are finally at the point where those left at the Town Hall, are as fed up as we are! They too, will be happy to provide you with any proof you wish to see. Benson can't fire EVERYBODY in town! Yes, he should resign, and Clark along with him. Heck, at least we can WORK with Brucey! Those other two are as dirty as they come. Ask Hazel Dewey or Donna Smith why they walked OUT on that meeting! More importantly, wait until the NEXT meeting!!!!!! 

       Too bad for Gail that she didn't stick around AFTER this meeting to hear Doug Clark threaten Bob Smith with physical violence for exposing the lies. She could have been witness number 4!

(Below is the comment I submitted to the Chatham Courier after reading the Heinsohn article. They DID publish it and I thanked them for doing so.)

K9Patriot wrote on Aug 22, 2012 12:41 PM:

" More bias reporting from the writer who sees only ONE side. Mistake #1, I spoke during "Privilege of the Floor" as required and all I said was factual. The Commander case HAS been decided as invalid since Benson lied about a vote being taken to serve the summons. That vote never occurred.
Clark was complicit in this action. Benson was absent w/o the public having any notice of same, we expected him to be there. Second vacation in 7 months as Super. The Ethics Board duties will NOT go to the "Court" if the board is dissolved, it will go to "COUNTY". Benson should resign and so should Gail Heinsohn.
I expect that this paper will not have the integrity to print this comment. "

THINK About It !!                      8-15-2012


      I've really been chewing on last night's events. There WERE some positives, such as the lack of objection to the fact that John Dax must GO.  The exposure of Benson and Clark's lies and collusion with one another to cover these things up the best they can. Seeing Donna Smith realize what Benson IS was a good thing.  I also believe that many of the non-Liberals had an eye-opening experience by  observing the behavior of the liberal boneheads and especially Max Gitter.  

       Gitter's comment was SO deplorable and SO telling as to how Liberals and Lawyers think. They actually believe that it is okay to attain their goals through any means necessary, whether or not those means are honest, honorable, or fair. Regardless of whom they hurt. The message that Gitter sent to all present was a shameful confirmation of the moral decay of America. He and people like him are to blame for the lack of integrity, compassion, Godliness and righteousness in our country today. This is NOT a Good Man. That was of course, already obvious by the company he keeps, but last night he might just as well have stood up and said, "Hi, I'm Max Gitter and I'm a Liberal Scumbag!". 

         Sadly, it is people like him that have the financial means to support the candidates that further their deliberate destruction of all that is good in America. These are the people that supported Mike Benson and still do, with NO concern for his mis-conduct and crimes. They will go out of their way to defend  his tyrannical and cruel "Leadership" tactics.  Kathy Murnane is no different. She too, protects and defends everything the Czar does, and SHE is the self-appointed Chairwoman of the Ethics Board!!!!  Is there any wonder that none of the Ethics Complaints submitted have ever been investigated or pursued? She doesn't even know that there is NO SUCH THING as an Ethics Board Chair! All members are equal! Thank God they are planning to dissolve that mess of a board.

          Doug Clark.  Look ya right in the eye and lie. Claimed to not have told Kent Pratt to serve Commander, but not only DID he do it, he did it TWICE. Benson too! Benson, lied to Commander, then threw Clark under the bus for the third time that I am AWARE of! Do you all recall Clark's bicycle accident of a couple of years ago? Yeah, he and his crony Benson wear those little tights and ride bicycles. I can SEE that, can't you? Anyway, their usual practice is to bike out to Jacksons in Old Chatham and knock back a few, then ride home. People who drink and bike tend to fall down and get boo-boos. You know, I actually have sympathy for Clark. He is SO insecure and SO in need of validation that he will stoop to any level to BE someone. THAT is not funny, that is SAD.

           Benson on the other hand, I have NO pity for. HE is a mean, evil, selfish, and controlling user. WHY is he on a second vacation in 7 months? I can tell you why he wasn't here last night. He can claim to have planned this vacation ahead of time all he wants, but the fact is, he is a COWARD, like ALL tyrants are when they are challenged. He ran away to avoid the conflict HE caused. The Liberal kiss-ups can shake their heads and support the filth all they want, but we will NOT. Nor will we lower ourselves to sneaky, under-handed, dis-honest and dirty means of attaining our goals as they do. Doing things with integrity and honor today, is the hardest way to get anything done, or to win the battle, but it is still the RIGHT and DECENT way to do it. It is the way WE have done it and will continue to do it. Slow and steady wins the race. Goodness will eventually pay off and there will be no regrets on OUR part.

        WE are transparent, truthful, and people of good moral fiber. Unlike the Max Gitters of this world. We do NOT lie, steal, bully, and cheat. They DO. WE will fight the good fight in the right manner, and we WILL win!  I can't WAIT to compare the newspaper articles re: last night's meeting. Register-Star vs. the Eastwick Press. Should be very interesting.    God Bless.   JJ

THE  SANCTITY  OF  GOD  AND  COUNTRY !                 8-18-2012


             If you are younger than 40 years, you are suffering from a Patriotic Disability. You were not HERE to see America as she was, and was INTENDED to BE. You missed the days of mom staying home to keep house and raise kids while dad went off and made the bacon. You didn't have the benefit of school prayer, Sunday School, then dinner at grandma's house after church. Your teachers were not selected or promoted based on their merits as educators, but were instead "protected" by tenure and unions regardless of their ability to teach effectively or not.

             Few of you were taught that hard work pays and crime does not and that the Government is not your mama or daddy, you must be responsible for yourself, your family and your choices. How often did any of you hear from any adult, that you are blessed to live in this great country? How much of our Constitution and Bill of Rights were you taught in school or at home? What is the scope of your knowledge about the Revolutionary War, it's causes and triumphs? How about your OWN children? 

             It isn't hard to see that the Occupy Wall Streeters and thousands of other irrational and disruptive groups in America today, are comprised of a great  number of young people. In many ways, they are not entirely to blame for their mis-conceptions and flock mentality. They just don't know any better. They don't know the TRUTH, and they don't know HISTORY. How many of these young Liberals coming out of our colleges, actually know how slavery got its start and WHO fought to keep it alive? What do they know of Communistic Oppression, ethnic-cleansing, and tyranny? 

            How many do you suppose, have studied the original immigrants that entered legally via Ellis Island, and how they assimilated and helped to build this country? Have they compared those settlers to the immigrants of today? The lazy, criminal, and dangerous element that is infiltrating our land and injecting it with their lack of civility and respect and gratitude for all this country has to offer them? Our young Soldiers get it, the rest of our young, do not. The sad part of all this is not only the fact that these people have missed out on so much of what is American Excellence, but that they fail to take advantage of all the educational material available to them. 

           Knowledge is POWER, it is STRENGTH, and it is Patriotic. The TRUTH is everywhere, but first, one must be willing to Seek It Out! Seek it out, they must, as they are the future landlords of this country, this last, great hope of the world, and mis-management is not an option. Liberalism, Socialism and Communism can never be allowed to infect and erase the rights and freedoms that were gained at such immeasurable cost. I believe that it is up to US, the older generation of Patriots and Believers, the generation that knew the last years of America the Great, to TEACH. 

         WE are responsible for passing on the Truths and Values that are being so viciously attacked by the Liberal Left and instruct the young as to how to preserve all that is right and good. How to BE right and good. We must hold our schools and educators to account and remove those who push the Liberal Agenda upon our children. God must once again take center-stage in our homes and families must teach responsibility by example.  Honesty and Morality must once again become priorities and tolerance for all that is evil and deviant must be stopped. No Political-Correctness, no more, "If it feels good do it".  The line between right and wrong must be re-drawn in indelible ink and the consequences for crossing that line must be stiff and immediate. Time is short.

September 2012 Entries



 Hadrian's  Wall 9-3-2012



    There is a photo posted below that I hope you will look at before you read this post. It is a photo of a remaining segment of Hadrian's Wall.  Hadrian was an Roman King that believed very strongly in the importance of protecting his people and his lands.  He also believed that soldiers with little to do, tended to get into trouble and out of shape, so he killed two birds with one stone. ( actually, MANY stones!). The wall was built by Roman Soldiers. Every few miles was a parapet for guards who would would look out over the surrounding countryside and watch for daring armies that thought the wall might be penetrable.  It was not.

       Outside the wall was a ditch that was 18 feet deep.  Inside the wall, was a similar ditch filled with nasty things we would rather not think about.  Every 10 miles, was an actual stone fort that could accomodate up to 60  Soldiers for several weeks at a time.  This amazing wall dwarfed the Great Wall of China, when it stood, and was so well built that it's ruins still stand in many places across Europe today,as this photo shows.

       Think for a moment, of the enormity of that under-taking! Men and animals, breaking their backs to build this tremendous wall with no machines, no vehicles, no modern tools of any kind! So, WHY can't today's America, build a damn fence? WE have modern machinery, WE have the money, we HAVE the willing workers and even volunteer patrol units. Yet our borders are as ineffective as Barack Obama. OUR land and OUR people are unprotected and OUR so-called Leader likes it that way! 

      Illegal immigrants are crossing our borders undeterred, each and every day. They do not come one by one, or two by two, they are coming by the THOUSANDS, into OUR country, where between 8 and 11% of our OWN people are unemployed.  These illegals are not ALL bad people by any means, but when they cross the border illegally, they become criminals. A vast majority of them are criminals BEFORE they cross the border, and the crime rates in border states have sky-rocketed as a result. Jan Brewer, the Governor of Arizona, and Sheriff Joe Arpaio, took a stand against the invasion and the failure of our federal government to enforce our immigration laws. For their heroic efforts, they have been investigated, berated, threatened and even sued by their own government! Still, they  have stood their ground, and every American needs to get behind them and support them!

      Can ANYONE explain to me, WHY our Border Patrol Officers are arrested, jailed or fired for doing their jobs? Why did two of our best, spend two years in prison for shooting an illegal in the butt-cheek when he refused to halt, even though that immigrant was a convicted drug dealer in Mexico? The guards went to PRISON for doing the job they were trained and paid to DO, and the illegal? He got free stitches in his A_s, and is probably now on welfare and popping out little Junior illegals all over Arizona. Is it any wonder that we can no longer GET good Border Patrol Officers?  Who wants a job that you get arrested for doing well at? DUH!  Thank GOD for the Minutemen, the good American,Patriotic citizens that patrol our border on a volunteer basis, on their own time, and at their own expense and peril. Hadrian would be proud.

How Stupid IS Stupid?    9-6-2012


     Another hot and humid day, but one of the LAST.  Makes me feel that sense of satisfaction I get when I squash a mosquito. In the meantime, my A.C is set at 64 degrees and I am venturing outdoors as little as possible today. No guilt about it either, housework and laundry are done, beds are made,dogs are brushed and pedicured and manure is shoveled from the outdoor animal pens. The rest of the day is MINE! 

    Yesterday was this week's Monday. LOL. I mean that my Mondays are generally INSANELY busy with calls and emails and lately, visitors. That didn't happen this week. Instead, it all waited for yesterday. Only thing on today's schedule is Bible Study this evening, which gave me some time to do a little reading early this morning before the sun came up. As a result, I have some things to share with you. 

     If you are a Conservative, you will LOVE this stuff. Liberals? Not so much. LOL! Still, it is all FACTUAL, enlightening, and absolutely hysterical. Also see the Obama installment of the Propaganda Buttons. Holy Crow! Talk about "hyphenated Americans"! Teddy Roosevelt HATED that, and said that in America there is no ROOM or PLACE for hyphenated-Americans. You are either an American or you're NOT.  Good ol' Teddy, wisdom, leadership and the Teddy Bear, all wrapped up in one little package!

     1) On November 14, 2006, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors voted to instruct police to down-grade the smoking of marijuana to the lowest enforcement priority. The very next day, Belmont, a suburb of San Fran, became the first city in America to ban cigarette,cigar,and pipe smoking everywhere within the city limits according to the San Mateo Daily Journal article of 11-15-2006. The ban included ALL property, publicly or privately owned, including condominiums and cars, but not detached, single-family homes.


       LOL. So, let's see what  message this sends. It is no big deal to smoke weed, apparently anywhere you choose as no regulations were placed on THAT, but no one can smoke a LEGAL, Taxed product, ANYWHERE? Um, okay. I guess second-hand weed smoke is better than regular tobacco because at least it will give the idiots a free contact high.  I mean why expose non-smokers and kids to what they like to call, "Cancer-Causing Agents" if you get no high to make it worth the risk? Liberal Logic.


    2) In April of 2007, singer Sheryl Crow explained her view on the environment in an interview on the TV Show, USA Today. She stated the following:

       "I propose that a limitation be put on how many squares of toilet paper can be used in any one sitting.  I don't want to rob any law-abiding American of their God-given rights, but I think we are an industrious enough people that we can make it work with only ONE square per restroom visit, except, of course, on those pesky occasions where two or three are required."


  I have NO comment on THIS one!


    3) During a campaign stop in Oregon on May 9,2008, Barack Obama stated the following to the crowd:

       " Over the last 15 months, we have traveled to every corner of these United States. I have now been to 57 states? I think, one left to go? Alaska and Hawaii, I was not allowed to go to, even though I really  wanted to, but my staff just wouldn't justify it."


      Does this even NEED a comment?


    4) This one is from a PETA, pro-fish booklet called, "Your Daddy Kills Animals", designed to be handed out to children in September of 2005. 

        "Until your daddy learns that it is not fun to kill, keep your doggies  and kitties away from him. He is so hooked on killing defenseless animals that they could be next!"

         Gee, no nightmares THERE, huh? 


               I have HUNDREDS of these Liberal-Logic, Socialist-Stupid quotes for you. There is an endless treasure-trove of them because the Libs give us new ones every single day. I caught a clip of last night's  Clinton Speech , on the early morning news today.  Bad Billy said something to the effect of Americans "wanting" a country where they can say,"we're all in this together".  Hmm, sounds like a Socialist Society to ME.  SO, just how stupid IS stupid? 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 
More Liberal Logic     9-7-2012


     This web service is having some issues with keeping pictures up on the pages, and I am one of many people working with them to solve the problem.  Hopefully, it will be resolved soon.  In the meantime, I will continue to post them and hope for the best.  Here are a few more chuckles for you at Liberal expense, and another look at some more Obama support pins. Enjoy!

   1) Residents of Longmont, Colorado, voted in a resolution to abolish all "Dead End" street signs and to replace them with signs that say, "No Outlet". The Dead End signs were considered by Liberal residents as being "Unpleasant". I wonder if they are planning to replace the "Slow Children" sign with "Speed-Sensitive Offspring".


2)  In August of 2003, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, (D-TX), complained to a reporter that names for Hurricanes were too "Lily-White".  Lee demanded that federal weather officials "try to be inclusive of African-American names". 

   LOL!  Now THAT one's a winner! Hurricane Shaniqua ? Not only is there NO SUCH THING AS AN AFRICAN-AMERICAN, but this is another game where the Race-Card is used as an ACE Card.


   4) On the floor of the U.S House on Sept. 10, 2008, Democratic Representative Steve Cohen of Tennessee, said the following: " If you want change, you want the Democrat Party. Barack Obama was a Community Organizer like Jesus, who our minister just prayed about. Pontius Pilate was a Governor!".

   Too clueless to comment on.

5) With summer coming on, a group of students at the Albany Campus of the State University of New York decided to plan a theme picnic in honor of baseball Hall-of-Famer, Jackie Robinson, who broke the game's color barrier.  A gathering of about forty students protested the use of the word, "PICNIC" to promote the event, insisting that the word originally was a racist code word that referred to lynching Blacks.  Any English teacher could have told them that the word PICNIC came into the English language in about 1750 and was derived from the French word, piquenique, which means.... PICNIC. Undeterred, the school's Affirmative Action Director, ( HUH? ), released a memo asking everyone to stop using the word regardless of its origin or meaning. "True or not, the word has caused offense".   The group planning the event, you know, the one where you eat food outside on a blanket, changed the name to "Outing". Now THAT word did not sit well with the campus Gay and Lesbian groups and was also removed. So, after everyone had his or her say in the matter,the event was promoted without  the use of ANY noun to describe it. Did you KNOW that Yogi Bear was a Racist?


   So there you have it folks, Political Correctness at its best!  Liberal Stupidity and Whining and lack of Chutzpah. Sticks and stones apparently bruise their tender sensibilities.  Of course, we all know that is not at all the case. What it boils down to is CONTROL. The Libtards want 100% control of everyone else's lives. Which is why the Government is Liberal and Liberal-Supporting. They salivate just thinking of the  day when they can tell the people of America what to eat and drink, what to wear and drive, where to live, how many kids to have, how much money to make, how to Worship, if at all, etc.,etc.  Michelle Obama has already taken it upon herself to decide what kind of lunches our kids will eat at school, and Bloomberg has banned ex-large sodas. Yeah, it's amusing, but it is also a dire warning of things to come.

     Socialism does not happen in one fell swoop, it comes about in baby steps, little intrusions into our lives and losses of rights that seem irrelevant at first. It is silent and sneaky like a colorless, odorless poison gas. You don't know it's there until it's too late. THIS is the Agenda of the Obama Administration and the neo-Dems. Wake UP America.

 MUST- SEE  VIDEO!          9-8-2012


    Watch this 6-minute video, then come back and read on.


http://www.ijreview.com/2012/09/15290-case-closed-if-moderate-voters-see-this-video-its-over-for-obama/



      Does this concern you?  It SHOULD! All of this video was compiled from actual interviews of  Obama or about his agenda.  No "dubbing-in" of words or photos, this is all actual footage.  The first thing that hits you is the Transparency issue. Barack Hussein Obama has been the most Anti-Transparency president in the history of America, having gone to great lengths to mask his true background and keep his personal privacy, private. Presidents have NO right to privacy in matters that can affect this country and the people who live in it!  If you want your life to be private, politics is not for you. Go sling burgers. Now THERE is a job Obama would be good at. Everyone's first job should be simple, don't you think?

     This video exposes lie after lie after lie and cannot be explained away or excused by anyone. It also exposes the TRUTH about the Medicare situation that many of our seniors do not understand. Millions of them still actually believe the Democrat's propaganda that they will be left out-to-dry if Mitt Romney wins!!  Quite the opposite!

 PLEASE-PLEASE-PLEASE, show this video to the Seniors in your life!  Help them to understand that the Republicans will NOT take away their medical care coverage and protections, but OBAMA, WILL. He has already robbed Medicare of more than $714,000,000,00. and put that money into implementing his plan for Socialized Medicine via Obamacare!  Under Obamacare, our seniors WILL lose. They will lose their Medicare coverage and many will lose their LIVES. 

     The Obama administration has worked very hard at frightening our Seniors into voting for Obama by lying to them about Medicare, and it has been very effective. Now it is up to US to set them straight and ease their minds. Each and every one of us must take at least ONE senior aside and talk to them about this NOW, with 9 weeks left before the election. The Democrats do not know the MEANING of Transparency or Truth, but you and I DO, and we need to get the Truth out there a.s.a.p. SHARE this video, TODAY!       God Help Us.     JJ

Coyotes & Cabbage  9-10-2012


            1:15 a.m, every morning, the coyotes run through the Clark Engineering property, yipping and howling like Banshees. I'm not afraid of coyotes, but I have to admit that the sounds they make are downright eerie, enough to raise the hairs on the back of your neck. I don't know how many of them are in this pack, but it sounds like a LOT. 

           The weather today was my idea of perfection, and I had planned my chore list all weekend. I enjoy working outdoors when it's cool and have SO much to do that didn't get done because of the heat this summer. Painting,staining, a canoe to restore as a decoration, gardens to clean, transplanting to do, windows to wash, etc.,etc. However, those plans got changed by a visit from my one-and-only kiddo and grandaughter number two. Which is not a complaint, I am blessed to have a kid that WANTS to spend time with his mother. So I switched today's plans with tomorrow's and spent the day with cabbage. LOL!

     My husband brings home a LOT of veggies all summer and cabbage is one of them. We give a lot to my Pastor so he can fill up those 7 kids, and there are a few others we share with who don't have the means to shop for fresh veggies. Still, there is a LOT. So I spent the day making stuffed peppers and stuffed cabbage and coleslaw. Cooking, my favorite thing. (NOT!). If given the choice between cleaning all day and cooking for several hours, I would take cleaning every time. I HATE to cook.  It's all good though, I now have several meals in the freezer, a clean house, and free time to work outdoors tomorrow. I also had a good visit with the kids.

     So, about tomorrow.  SIX O'CLOCK for the Public Hearing on the Speedway Safety issue, followed by the Ethics Board Hearing and then the Regular Town Board Meeting. Gonna be a LOOONG night. Hope to see a good turn-out for a change.  Also, Republican primary this week folks.  

      I've been talking to some folks lately about the Speedway and all the battering it has taken in the past few years, especially in 2011 and 2012. A lot of people are confused by the constant harassment of Howard Commander by the town and by people who just have nothing else to do with their lives. Can you imagine, how much good could have been done for this town and some of its residents, with the money Howard has been forced to spend on the ridiculous legal fights he's had to battle? Many people don't realize how much Howard DOES for others in need, or how much he pays in taxes to this town, which in turn, keeps YOUR taxes lower.

    I won't beat a dead horse here, I've talked about this before, but one man made a comment this week that hit home with me. He said, "What ever happened to leaving others alone to make a legal living?". Ahh, exactly. I have always felt that it's jealousy that drives the town officials and Liberal Whiners to persecute Howard as much as they do. The officials envy him his money and connections, while the whiners resent his pull and the fact that the speedway has been here far longer than THEY have, which gives it priority. Well, ya know what? Howard has worked for what he has and it is HIS, get over it. Go out and break a sweat and make your own. Ditto to the lazy liberals of America that want a Nanny State to "take care of them" so they don't have to get off the couch! 

      The Bible tells us that "He who does not work, does not eat". Pretty clear to ME. Ronald Reagan said, "The best Social Program is a JOB".  Now who can argue with THAT? Oh yeah, OBAMA can! He doesn't seem too fond of JOBS, he would rather hand out Food Stamps and Stimulus Money at the taxpayer's expense than promote the work ethic that America was built upon. Brain-Dead Kenyan. What sense does it make, that Obama has placed a moratorium on oil-drilling in America, yet is sending OUR money to Brazil to help fund THEIR drilling operations? It's too late at night to get myself going on that idiot, so enough said, for NOW. Instead, I'll let some pictures do the talking.

About Tonight's Meeting  9-11-2012


      The first thing I want and need to say is, our prayers go out today to the families of those lost in the Twin Tower attack eleven years ago.  It saddens me that the injection of American Pride and Unity this country received as a result of that tragedy, faded away so quickly. In the months following 9-11, America bonded as ONE country under God for the first time since the late 1960's. American flags sold out of every store in every state in the country and church pews in churches of all denominations and faiths, were filled to over-flowing. Families drew closer to one another and people FINALLY realized the need to protect our own. Gun stores were mobbed as people exercised their Second Amendment rights and song writers produced some of the most patriotic music in history. I knew then, that it wouldn't and couldn't last. It didn't.

       The shock wore off and America went back to being divided once again. Since then, the division has grown wider as liberals defend the  very religion that was responsible for the senseless murder of thousands of innocent people on our own soil. Our wimpy government has allowed Mosques to spring up all across the country and afforded Constitutional protections to Islam and Muslims that were never in the thoughts of the great men that WROTE the Constitution. Islam is a CULT. Islam is a cult of hate and violence, pedophilia, honor-killings, and is spreading like an infectious disease while we turn a blind eye to it. 

      Britain has been invaded and over-taken by Muslims, and the problem is SOO extreme, that British nationalists must walk on the opposite side of the street from praying Muslims at sundown! Only Germany took a stand against the invasion and failure of Muslim immigrants to assimilate. America will do nothing until it is too late, thanks to Bleeding-Heart Liberalism that promotes "TOLERANCE".  Tolerance and Political Correctness are DEADLY. How many businesses in America are now Pakistani-owned? Think about that and then think about WHO was hiding Osama.  Imagine the damage that could be done here, if all of a sudden the Pakistanis in America were called to take up arms against us. How's THAT for a scary thought? The government wants our guns, they want us defenseless against our enemies and yes, our government.

      They KNOW that seizing our weapons will never work, but controlling the AMMO, WILL. Wake up America and smell the coffee. Think back to how your heart ached on this day eleven years ago and regain that love of country and feeling of outrage at those who would dare attack it! Shine a light on the truth of the dangers of liberalism and apathy. November is very,very close!

        Tonight is a good time to start getting involved.  Come and listen to the facts about the Speedway Safety issue. Determine who is responsible for what and let your opinion be known. Look at the mess our local Ethics Board became at the hands of Doug Clark, Bruce Baldwin and Mike Benson, not to mention Kathy Murnane and Christopher Steadman. They turned a board intended to promote integrity and transparency into a battlefield and a septic tank of corruption. Look at our STATE Ethics Board right now! Do these people even know what Ethics ARE????? GEEZ!

        Stick around for the regular meeting when we attempt to determine who the liars are; Benson or Clark of both? Listen in on the issues surrounding the town hall addition that is costing us half a million dollars and isn't big enough to have a family birthday party in. How about the issue of Clark threatening Bob Smith with physical violence? John Dax missing more than 25% of ZBA meetings and no longer being a Lebanon resident, yet still serving as Chair of the ZBA. There are other issues that will be addressed but I am not at liberty to mention before the meeting. There is the cemetery problem AND the library grant that is breaking our backs, etc.,etc. Like I said, a LOONG meeting, I'm sure. 

         WE will be there at 5:45 and hope to see many of you as well. Positive change begins at the lowest level and if there is anything I can say with all certainty about the Lebanon Town Board, it is definitely the "LOWEST".

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------


 Pants on FIRE!!!           9-11-2012


  I cannot believe, digest, or accept anything that happened at that meeting tonight. Our "SUPERVISOR" and his little foot-washer, Doug Clark, could not get more deplorable and crooked if they took lessons from  Bill Clinton. These two men are 100% incapable of telling the truth or admitting their mistakes. It's Obama all over again, blame the other guy.

      The Safety Hearing re: the Speedway, was ridiculous. They had two people there from D.O.T, four cops, Attorney Howard who has become a Benson-Man, Howard Commander, Attorney Jason Shaw, Bill Black, and Sean Simini from the Speedway.If I spelled Sean's last name wrong, I apologize. Only three town board members were present, Matt Larabee, Doug Clark and Benson. Brucey is on a cruise somewhere, (I will let that go by without a sarcastic comment),and K.B was too busy watching somebody bale his hay for him, since his baler is broken.  

     This waste of the people's time was laughable. Benson actually suggested an "Overhead pedestrian bridge" to allow track spectators to cross safely. LOLOL!  Idiot. Of course, a lot of the Liberal Whiners that attend the Stephentown Meetings re: the Moto-X Track, were present. The Millets, who seem to hate having anyone live and work in this town other than themselves, and a handful of others, including that guy who wears the Birkies and never washes his feet.  Eww. Naturally, they all left in a hurry when the Speedway issue was over, because they don't care about anything ELSE that might be going on in town. Only what concerns THEM and their little green lives.

      The meeting resulted in suggestions of every kind of sign and light in existence and some that are not. They DID have to admit that accidents at the Speedway site are few and far between and are generally little fender-benders. The BAD accidents occur IN town, and even more so at County Rt. 5 due to lack of proper signage. The Citiot Shortcut as it is known in Conservative circles, is too hard for the 5th Avenue crowd to see, so they pull U-Turns, drive too fast, or slam on their brakes and people get hurt. Kevin Smith has been complaining about that problem for YEARS and nothing has ever been done. 

       Lowering the speed limit at the track was mentioned, and in the end, it was left that the D.O.T would attempt to install signs with flashing lights that could be turned on during track events. None of them thought to mention that there are flasher signs that say " Reduce Speed When Flashing" right ON them. I wanted to tell them that, but the public was not allowed to speak. Let 'em tread water. 

      The Ethics Board hearing was next, and Kathy Murnane whined about how she was so picked on and how previous complaints were "ridiculous". RIDICULOUS?!? The threatening of a fellow town official by another, is RIDICULOUS? Tampering with a witness is RIDICULOUS? Etc.,Etc! She also claimed that complainants don't understand the guidelines for submitting complaints. NO Kathy, YOU don't understand that you violated the NYS Open Meetings Law, and that there is no such thing as a Chairperson on LOCAL Ethics Boards! OR, that it is un-ethical to STACK the E.B with your un-ethical "friends". How about the fact that you are just plain MEAN, and hate people without ever even speaking to them or attempting to get to know them? 

       Steadman also had his say, but despite being some kind of lawyer, he doesn't know Jack,either. He claimed that the Ethics Board deals only with Fiscal Issues and that is NOT SO. He should read the NYS Code of Ethics AND the New Lebanon Town Code that clearly states that the E.B deals with issues of a fiscal nature and OTHERWISE. Of course, I did tell them all that. I also said they SHOULD send the Ethics issues to the County from now on and dissolve the local board since it is unfairly stacked and will NEVER investigate a complaint fairly as long as there are un-ethical people serving on it. Like Murnane and Steadman, both of whom were complicit in the board-stacking and Open Meetings Law violation,  and Steadman who violated the NYS Election Law. Maybe they need to look up "ETHICS" in the Merriam-Webster? 

      A few folks want the board kept in town, a few don't, so they tabled the issue at the request of Matt Larabee who wants to wait to make a decision until they have a full Town Board present. Good idea, Matt. 

      After all the usual, boring stuff, we came to the Privilege of the Floor. A lot of folks are concerned about the size vs. cost of the Town Hall addition. Cynthia Creech referred to it as a $500,000.00, two-car garage. Which it essentially, IS. Another woman I've never seen before, stated that the kitchen needs to have the commercial exhaust system required of the restaurants in town, and also questioned the seating capacity vs. the need for a sprinkler system. The town has always claimed it's anything over 49, but the law, according to this woman who apparently did her homework, states 99. Since the cost of a sprinkler system was one of the reasons given by the board for the addition being kept small, this woman wanted to know WHY they had the capacity numbers wrong? Good Question!

     Benson of course, blames the lack of space in the new facility, on the public. Again. He went on about how the blueprints were "On the Table" for all to see and no one objected THEN. Well, allow me to address that. Only two people who were in attendance tonight, can read and understand a blueprint. Clark and Benson. Yet they expected lay-people to KNOW how SMALL this building would be? Would it have mattered if anyone HAD objected? Of course not, as the people of this town were not given an opportunity to vote on these plans. It was another Town Board decision and the people HAD no say! I still believe this was deliberate punishment of the voters who said NO to the original, $800,000.00 plan that Brucey was salivating over, but that's just MY opinion.

    They're certainly not punishing ME any, I'll sit on the floor at meetings if I have to. It is what it is, and what it IS, is an embarrassment, and theft of the taxpayer dollar. Great accomplishment, Mikey! You will be memorialized in Lebanon history for building a joke and throwing away our money. You will also be remembered for a lot of other things, but I digress.

       The plight of our cemetery was discussed tonight also, and also tabled. It's time to step up to the plate people, and DEMAND that the Library Board accept a reduction in their grant from the town. Cut it in half and give half to the cemetery. Start hammering Doug Clark, Mr. Library Board, and let's git 'er done! If the cemetery goes bankrupt, it will become the responsibility of the town to take care of, and no more plots can EVER be sold. State Law. So it will not be financially self-sustaining in any way, AND we will have to pay for someone to keep records, which right now, we receive as a free service from Bev Larabee and Ruth Lasher, members of the Cemetery Association. It will be cheaper, and more effective to supplement the cemetery NOW and still be able to buy plots there in the future. 

         I am grateful to Bev and Ruth and Larry Benson for taking this on. Let's help them out!   Ya know, I found it funny tonight that Mike Benson kept talking about using "Common Sense" in dealing with the safety issues at the speedway. Mike Benson and about half the people in this town, have no clue as to what Common Sense even IS. LOLOL!! If they did, we would not have a drowning cemetery and a filthy-rich library  that is used by less than 20% of the residents. We would not have a dirty Ethics Board or a joke of a Town Hall. We would not have Mike Benson as a Supervisor.

       Getting back to privilege of the Floor, Kevin Smith also spoke about the town hall project being abominable.  When it was my turn, I asked why the "Communications" section of the meeting agendas has been removed?  That was the part of the meetings when any letters or emails that had been received at the the clerk's office that month, were read and discussed.  Benson stated that he had never seen any such thing on an agenda, but about five people spoke right up and told him he was wrong. I mentioned my issue with John Dax still being ZBA Chair despite the fact that he no longer lives in Lebanon or even in the COUNTY, and has missed over 25% of the ZBA meetings to date. This was one of the 2 letters I have sent the Town Board in the past 2 months that were never read or acknowledged.

       As always, all I got was "Thank You" and on to the next speaker. They NEVER, EVER answer or address your question or complaint. NEVER. THAT, is why we need the County Ethics Board! Scott Larabee was next, and he was NOT a happy camper. He took Mike on about the  handling of the park-painting bids that were never advertised despite a board vote to do so. He accused Mike of being out of line by soliciting bids on his own and making the hire which he is NOT authorized to do. Scott was 100% correct. Benson violated the law in doing both things. 

    Benson's response was to brag about how he had saved this town $5,000.00 by hiring whom he did, because the bids he had received from his illegal solicitation, were all $5,000.00 and above!  OMG! So, in other words, it was okay to break the law, to over-step his bounds and go against the BOARD VOTE, as long as he saved us money?!?!?!?! Naturally, Clark weighed-in and supported Benson and said that we need  to stop arguing about silly little issues. What Benson did is not a silly little issue, it is blatant mis-conduct, Abuse of Power, and 100% ILLEGAL! The end does NOT justify the means when the means are illegal. Simple. SO simple, even a liberal can understand it. Scott did not back down, and I saw a lot of people shaking their heads at what Benson had done and how he attempted to excuse it. One lady came up to me after the meeting and said, "WOW, Clark is a Big Baby, isn't he?". LOLOLOL!!!

      THAT was priceless!  A new attendee actually saw that right off!  Nothing was said about Clark threatening Bob Smith last month, or about what they intend to do about Dax. NOT going away, Mikey! NONE of it is going to go away. No matter HOW busy you are posting Gibson signs, you will have to answer for your lawlessness.  Privilege was followed by Executive Session number 8 of the past nine months. Ridiculous. No town this small should have need for so many exec sessions. Benson keeps telling the public how he values TRANSPARENCY in local government. Excessive Exec. sessions is anything BUT transparency. 

      Tonight, they claimed that they were not sure if there would be a vote following exec. or not, so some of us stuck around, even though we know from experience, that they would come out and adjourn without a word to the public. They did not disappoint. 45 minutes in exec. session with only three board members present. Fifteen minutes before they came out, they called Colleen Teal IN to the meeting. Now, THAT is unusual. She was not asked to bring anything with her to write with, so it was not for the purpose of taking minutes, that's for sure.

      I get a kick out of the attitude of Clark and the Czar when they come out of exec. They grin like Cheshire Cats at having kept the public in the dark after they waited around for 45 minutes or however long. Too bad they don't "Get It" that we KNOW what they are going to do before they do it and they are not getting under our skin one bit. We EXPECT them to be sleazeballs. So much for TRANSPARENCY, huh? The Czar does not even contact town employees directly, he sends them emails , often via a third party. As in the case of Scott Larabee. Apparently, the Little League Field was not mowed Wednesday due to the rain, and there was a game coming up. Scott had it done by Friday when it dried out, but the Czar  sent an email to a town hall employee and complained about the grass. Not to Scott, but to a third party. He did not know the grass had been mowed already.

       So, tonight, the Czar attacked Scott in a public meeting, claiming that he has received calls and even visits to his home from residents who are unhappy with the park maintenance! Number one, the park looks the best it has looked since Jack Felter did it 15 years ago! Number Two, about 5 people asked for PROOF of the complaints from the Czar as soon as he said it, and Number THREE, and most important, it is an Ethics Violation for the Supervisor to take an employee to task in a public forum!  So, let's see; tonight's meeting should result in about three or four Ethics Complaints against Benson, through the COUNTY Ethics Board, not the local, sick one.

     By the way, our Town Attorney sat and did nothing about the accusations of mis-conduct or the way the Czar lit into Scott. Zippo, Nada.     So folks, all I can say is ,it gets worse and worse. The lies, the complicity, the violations of town law,abuse of power, all continue to escalate. Every single person in this town that voted for Mike Benson should be publicly flogged in the park. A town picnic is being planned to try to re-unite the people of Lebanon that were divided by last year's election. That is an honorable and well-meaning attempt. However, this town has no hope of ever re-uniting as long as Mike Benson and Doug Clark serve in our local government. 

     The same fools that support Obama will continue to support Benson and Clark, because to THEM, it doesn't matter HOW you get what you want, as long as you GET it. As long as the Liberal Library can have its Chamber Music and Champagne parties for the citiots and tree-huggers, let the cemetery sink. As long as the whiners can have peace on summer Saturdays, let Howard Commander be beat up and toss money away that could be better used for good. Let him fail and watch the domino effect that has on all the other local businesses, as long as their yards are quiet. I could go on, but you get the gist.

           If we do not stand up and demand integrity in our town, how can we ever hope to see our country survive and recover? How can we explain to our kids that laws are only meant for the peons like us, but politicians have no laws to govern themselves? How can we look ourselves in the mirror if we do nothing? 

--------------------------------------------------------------

         Paws to Think !!           9-12-2012



    First I would like to wish Archie a Happy 78th Birthday!  I took him out for breakfast and a friend took him out for dinner, so he has had a good day. Party will be Sunday. 


            The reason I am posting late afternoon rather than tonight, is that I have been chewing all day on the news report I heard this morning. You may have heard about the 3 little Pit Bull pups found on the railroad tracks in Menands?  One did not survive, but the other two made their television debut this morning in the arms of a shelter worker. Two, little gray and white pups no more than 5 weeks old, wiggling and chewing on one another and the worker's fingers. I wished I could reach into the television and grab 'em! 

           One pup has lost its left rear paw and the other lost several toes. WHY? Well, because some sick, totally demented "person" or "persons" nailed their feet to the railroad ties and abandoned them there! I'm sorry, but with all the folks out there willing to adopt unwanted pups and all the shelters and veterinary hospitals these babies could have been dropped at, there is only ONE reason for this to have happened. Sheer Cruelty and Mental Illness. HOW can ANYONE with a beating heart DO such a thing? What is WRONG with our world?!?!

           Ya know, every day we hear news reports about shootings and stabbings and rapes, many right here in the Capitol District. Crime no longer shocks us or even gains our attention most of the time. We are de-sensitized to violent behaviors. Our kids witness thousands of violent acts on t.v and the internet, not to mention in VIDEO GAMES, before they even begin school. Life has  become cheap.  Abortion is looked at as "No Big Deal", and our elderly and frail are treated like worthless objects.  What has happened to COMPASSION? 

        As bad as violence by humans against humans is, at least in most cases, it is not a matter of the helpless being attacked by the stronger. Yet we have abused babies and little children, the handicapped, the elderly and especially the PETS. If two drug dealers on the streets of Albany want to kill each other, fine, save us taxpayers the money of supporting another inmate. Maybe that sounds harsh, but that is how I feel. Just being honest. In cases like that, I feel no sorrow or compassion for those involved. They are adults that made stupid choices and now must pay the piper, period. 

      However, abusing or killing an innocent, human or animal, is beyond what my mind can process. It makes me SO angry, that I just cannot deal with it. Years ago, when I was a city kid, my anger was a huge issue for me. THAT JJ would be going to Menands tonight and searching for the person who hurt those puppies. If I found them, I would nail them to the railroad ties and leave them there. Same with the guy who duct-taped that sweet old dog last year and left him at the side of the road. He would get EXACTLY what he gave that dog. 

      Former Governor Pataki passed a law in New York called "Buster's Law", named after a cat that had been set on fire by cruel teens. It made Animal Cruelty a crime and the penalties were toughened up. Not enough. Abuse of the weak and helpless should be a felony and carry a minimum , three-year prison term. No plea-bargains, no excuses. Hurt a child, a senior,  handicapped person or an animal, and it's OFF to jail, period.  I am not referring to the rare cases where a person loves their animals but is struggling financially and not feeding them well enough. Those people need help, not punishment. I am referring to abusers, those who kill and maim for FUN, or sport, or whatever it is that is un-plugged in their brains.

     It is no secret that I personally prefer the company of pets to that of people. People bite, they turn on you and judge you by your looks, how you dress, where you live, or how much money you have or don't have. They lie to you and conspire against you, or hurt you and walk away without a moments remorse. Not so with animals, especially dogs, my favorite. A dog loves you just because you are theirs. They don't give a rat's behind what you look like, or smell like, or wear or say, or drive or live in, as long as they are WITH you. They forgive, they love unconditionally, they are fiercely loyal and will lay down their very lives for you. They keep your secrets and burst with excitement when you come home, whether you have been gone 10 days or 10 minutes. The "Welcome Home Doggie Dance". 

      Breed, size, color, age do not matter, a dog is a dog is a dog. Love wrapped in fur. GOD spelled backwards. How can anyone justify harming such a wonderful gift? How can the rest of us stand by and allow it? It grieves my heart to think about it. I can't even watch those commercials with the sad music and the homeless cats and dogs. I turn my head away when they come on the t.v and to this day, have never seen one, only heard them. I refuse to watch a movie if an animal dies in it, not that I watch movies or much t.v anyway, but definitely not those things. I am just sickened by the cruel hearts in our world, and the harm done by them.

     People like Doug Clark, Mike Benson, Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, are all despicable to me, yet I could never physically harm a single one of them, nor do I wish to. I could never desire them to suffer an illness or a loss or any kind of injury other than political ones, like getting run out of government on a rail. I hate no one. I have little respect for a whole LOT of folks, but I wish them no harm. If Doug Clark or Mike Benson were in need of help and I was there, I would help them. If one of them was broke down on the side of the road in the driving rain and I went by, I would turn around and pick them up!  Deliberate abuse is NOT acceptable in my world. I WILL call them to task on their conduct and work toward getting it corrected or punished, absolutely NO question there, but to HURT someone? Nope. Not unless it was in defense of someone else who was being hurt. 

      Puppies, babies, old folks, all warm my heart and lift my spirits. They keep me always aware of the presence of God. No harm should ever come to them.

===============================================================================================


Primary  Day!!   9-13-2012


    Awesome day out there! MY weather comes in this weekend, 60s,  Hurray!  

            Hope all the Lebanon Republicans are out there voting in the primary. I tutored a friend this morning in how to vote the "New" way and which candidates stand for what,etc. Voting is a funny thing; we try to cast that precious vote for the person we believe will stand for the same things WE do, but in reality, it's a matter of "Who is the lesser of two  evils?".  Isn't that SAD? No longer is it exciting to support a certain candidate, or to feel really satisfied after voting. Politics is so deeply entrenched in mud, that all we can do is hope to pick the candidate with the least of it stuck to his clothes.

         The phone rang off the hook this morning again, so I'm beginning to think that my Mondays and Wednesdays have switched places. One call had to do with one of my 2 Stephentown cases, another had to do with a voter needing help, and yet another was from a local businessman with a request for some documents. This man gave me the second best compliment I have ever received. He is also the same man that gave me the FIRST great compliment I have ever been given.

        Several months ago, he told me that I am the first person he has ever known, that was willing to help him without asking for anything in return.  Today, he told me that I was the only person in town that profiled Benson correctly from the first time I saw him. He said that no one wanted to listen, but that I had been right from the get-go. You cannot imagine how good those two compliments made me feel. I am not a person who thinks highly of myself, and I have no patience with those who are conceited and opinionated. I get so much negativity from the Liberals and Democrats, and sometimes even from my own family, so a compliment can be a real lift from time to time. 

       We all need occasional validation in order to keep on going. ALL of us. I am fortunate enough to be able to fight a LOOONG time between validations, because they don't come often. LOL!! My confidence suffers sometimes, but not my determination. I never waiver in my beliefs. For instance, I believe that a vote for Barack Hussein Obama, is an act of Treason and a sin against God. I am not afraid to say that to anyone who tells me they intend to vote for this traitor. It concerns me that so many people, especially seniors, believe that if you are an Independent, you must vote Independent across the board, ditto with all other parties. Many folks do not understand that they can vote for anyone they want, regardless of party line.

     Last November, I voted for two Democrats in the local election, and you all know how I feel about Democrats. Yet sometimes, it is a member of a party different from my own, that I feel is the better choice for the future of my town and my country. Mike Benson ran as a Republican, but his platform and his heart, are anything BUT Republican. Meg Robertson is a Democrat, but her heart is for this town and its people and she is no Liberal Tree-Hugger. Democrats at the federal level are most times very different from those at the local level. Older Democrats are generally better then young Democrats. My parents were Democrats, back when being a Democrat was not synonymous with anti-Americanism, Socialism, Tolerance and Political Correctness. If my dad were alive today, he would no longer be a Democrat. 

       Today's Dems are NOT yesterday's Dems, and that is what I wish my Dem friends would see. Believe me, I KNOW that there are creeps and slime-balls in EVERY party, it's just that the majority of them, are Democrats. Which is of course WHY, I am voting for Chris Gibson for Congress. I know ZIPPO about his opponent, and I am more than a little upset with Chris for his support of Benson. I hold him partially responsible for the Hell Benson has put Lebanon through. However, when it comes to Congress and the White House, I would sooner eat onions for breakfast than help put another Democrat in power. I HATE onions! I also hate peppers and tomatoes! Federal-Level Democrats are onions, peppers and tomatoes to me.

       So why do the good people that I care deeply for, NOT change parties? I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that being Democrats is all they have ever known. Their parents and grandparents were Democrats, so they stay where they are comfortable and familiar. Being people of good moral fiber and kind hearts, I can only hope that when they step into a voting booth or fill in the stupid little circles, that they vote impartially, for the best man or woman available, and not just because they are or are not, Democrats. Where the other parties are concerned, whether it be Independent, Libertarian, or Gay and Green, I resent them for stealing votes that could be better used to choose one of two candidates. The vital votes are split up so many ways for candidates who have NO shot anyway. Why waste your vote? 

      Oh well, to each his own I guess. All I know, is that this election in November is the most important one in history, and will decide the fate of America as a strong and free country. NO American, of ANY party, should be able to vote for Obama and sleep at night. NO ONE! If you can, you are not an American, and probably don't deserve to live here.  I once belonged to the "Right to Life" Party, but I switched to Republican so I could vote in the primaries and have my vote MATTER, because I love my country, my God, and the Constitution. I am deeply grateful to live here and not in some Socialist or Communist country or in the Middle East where all they do every day is kill one another. Being an American is a Blessing, a GIFT, and I will never take that for granted.

 Had Enough ISLAM Yet ????     9-14-2012



      So what are y'all thinking about what is happening in the Middle East NOW?  Some American dared to exercise his or her Right to Free Speech and insulted Mohammed the Pedophile, and the Muslims Maniacs decide that's grounds to murder and burn and act like the animals they ARE.  I say, "Tough Crap Muslims". You hate America? Get the H_ll OUT of America and go home where you belong among the other freaks. We don't want you anyway, we did not invite you and you are NOT welcome!  There are MORE than enough Muslim countries to choose from, so STAY where you can practice your sick cult worship of a maniac that named himself a Prophet and made up a story called the Koran. 

     Get OUT of Europe, get out of America, and go the H_ll HOME. YOU are NOT Americans and never WILL be. Your "Religion of Peace" is not a real religion and therefore, NOT entitled to Constitutional protections of worship in OUR country. Do you really believe that Christians are going to sit still for your people murdering and torturing THEM, yet accept YOUR ideals? Fat chance! So, gonna come get ME now? Bring it ON. I see ONE towel in my yard and I shred it with a 9mm. 

     Obama and the American AmbASSadors can apologize all they want but I will NOT. The Liberals can kiss your brown butts from now till Armageddon, but I will NOT. Take your twisty-topped Mosques and your prayer rugs back to Iraq before we drop a bomb on every Mosque on American soil. Murdering Bast_rds.  Saddle UP,American Christians, it's time to be the soldiers God taught us to be. NO TOLERANCE! EVERY immigrant must assimilate or EMIGRATE! Go ahead Liberals, vote for Obama again if you want to see the Muslims killing and burning in YOUR cities! Get it through your empty , tree-hugging, tofu-eating heads once and for all, Obama is a Muslim sympathizer and a Socialist whose ONLY agenda is to bring America to her knees. Get a damn CLUE, will ya?! 

      I do NOT believe in blowing my own horn, but I gotta tell ya, I can profile a WORM and be right on, about 99.9% of the time! I pegged Obama the minute I saw him, I pegged Benson, and I can peg YOU! Being retired does NOT mean I have forgotten one OUNCE of my training. Just because I don't talk about it or brag about it does not mean it is not there, or that I do not use it every single day of my life. I can spend one hour with a stranger and tell you who they REALLY are. Maybe I am revealing too much, but you know WHAT? I don't care!  I am ripping mad and I am NOT going to sit still for the abuse of America and her traditions another minute. 

      The rest of you can sit on the fence and strum guitars, but I intend to be pro-active and if that buys me even MORE enemies, so be it. There is only ONE person I need to please, and HE does not live on this nasty earth. 

      Isn't it enough, that we have been forced for YEARS, to accept  the unacceptable? Illegal immigrants pouring into our country and sucking the life's blood from it, corrupt government stealing us blind and trying to control our lives with money WE worked for. Minorities receiving freebies and perks they did not earn, the Race Card and Political Correctness putting us in danger of our very lives. Millions of babies being murdered before they draw a breath, because some liberal says it's okay? Men marrying men, women marrying women, criminals having more rights and protections than their victims, and now ISLAM being allowed to over-run every country in the world despite the fact that it is the most demented, senseless and cruel "religion" in existence. 

     Fathers murdering their daughters because they dated a non-Muslim, Husbands killing their wives for talking to another male or showing too much skin in public. Women stoned to death because they were unfortunate enough to be RAPED and bring dis-honor on their family, while the rapist goes free. Christians burned in pits because they owned a Bible in a Muslim country. Notice THAT, a "Muslim" country. America is NOT a Muslim country, never has been, never WILL be. America is a Christian nation, like it or not. Valid, peaceful religions are welcome here, but Islam is NOT. Look at Britain and what the Muslims have done there. Is that what you want HERE? If not, better speak up about all the Mosques being built on our soil. 

        I have had Liberalism and tolerance up to my green, Irish eyeballs. So I dare to say here and now to all Liberals, "You are despicable, and you do not deserve to live in this great country".  Every Liberal should be charged with Treason and deported to Cuba. Better yet, why let the sun shine on them, send them to Siberia. 

   Speaking of cold climates, did you notice the mass exodus of Mexicans to Alaska? Oh yeah, this is another good one. They are running to Alaska along with thousands of Russians, because in Alaska, 6 months of residency gets you citizenship as a Legal American ! How's THAT for a stupid law? Once the six months are up, they are free to go anywhere in America they please and live their lives. Ain't that peachy? I've talked with  friends in the past week that work in restaurants that employ these Mexicans in their kitchens, and I am told that they are going to Alaska in huge numbers. So, if you are unemployed, now would be the time to get even and take a Mexican's job.

     Many of you know that I have been a fan of Dr. Phil for a long time. That ended today. He ran two segments this week, one on Tuesday and one today, dealing with the Trayvon Martin shooting. I watched both episodes and saw exactly what I had expected to see the moment I learned that these shows were planned. I saw Dr. Phil become a California Liberal and support Trayvon and kiss up to his family. Dr. Phil essentially tried, judged and sentenced George Zimmerman on television before the man has even gone to trial, which he should not BE facing at ALL.  Self-Defense is not a crime. So, rather than repeat all I have said about this previously, I sent Dr. Phil a question via his website. ONE question that should tell the tale. I asked, "Why was Trayvon Martin wearing a hoodie over his head on a summer night in Florida?".  Amen? 

     Zimmerman will fry for protecting his own life and limb, and for ONE reason ONLY. HE is white and Trayvon Martin was not. Period, end of story. Had enough YET?  I sure have.

       Locally, there is some more interesting news. You will remember my telling you that the Czar had gone to a meeting of the Lebanon Seniors and publicly stated that he intended to fire the Deputy Town Clerk, Darla Dobert? Well, Darla IS no longer the Deputy Clerk, but she was not fired, she quit. She IS however, now working for the town as an Assessor's Clerk. She also happens to be employed full-time by Mike Benson's company, BCI Construction! This was the Buzz at Stewart's  last night, and still was today! I just thought you folks would find that interesting, that your Supervisor now has a Town Employee working for HIS company. Hmmm.

     There are several OTHER new issues concerning the Czar that very well might see him sporting new silver bracelets sometime soon. The kind you need a key to remove. What he has done publicly in the past few months is illegal and un-ethical ENOUGH, but wait until I can tell you the NEW stuff he has pulled!  This guy just never LEARNS. Talk about Repeat  Offenders! GEEZ!  Rumor is, Chris Gibson has asked him not to be seen publicly with him until after the campaign, yet I watched some guy fill the back of Benson's S.U.V with Gibson signs at this week's Town Board Meeting, so who knows. Maybe that's ALL the Czar will be allowed to do, LOL!!  Chris burned his own bridges there when Benson was campaigning. He has LOST New Lebanon for the most part already.  DUH! Tried to tell him, but he thought it was funny. Who's laughing NOW? 

   This has been the week from H_ll. SO much so, I think I need a secretary. Tomorrow I intend to turn OFF my phone and get my work done outdoors. PACT is CLOSED tomorrow. 

Enjoy the weekend!             JJ

 Learn to Spell Before Sending Me Hate Mail, Please!    9-16-2012


   Yesterday worked out pretty much as I planned it, for a change. It was nice to have a quiet day with no tragedies and no tips about violations by our officials.  Today was pretty quiet too, until I opened my email tonight. LOLOLOL!  I LOVE it when I get Hate Mail from people that cannot spell to save their own lives, have NO clue what punctuation is, then spew kindergarten-level  insults because they are not smart enough to debate another adult in an intelligent manner. It's SO entertaining. 

      Apparently, I ticked-off some guy named David Temple, whom I have never met or even heard of. His email claimed he was insulted by my comment about half of Lebanon residents having no common sense. This guy not only PROVED my statement true, he also made it clear that some people make NO sense!  The email was a "RANT" more than anything else, and it went on and on about crazy things that made no sense and had no connection to ME or to one another. Something about some old guy making me one of the dead in his tribe and my son sweeping streets and that I keep getting "kicked out" of churches. Totally irrational and  I actually think the guy was drunk or something, it was that bad. 

     My son works full-time after graduating college on the Dean's List. (with a 4.0 average!) Yes, my husband KNOWS I smoke, and so does everyone else, I am not yet dead, despite many people wishing I were, and I have never been kicked out of a church in my life. I LEFT a church, because it was full of nuts, and very, very sick. So I have NO clue where this loony gets his ideas, but I gotta tell ya, the nuts are coming out of the woodwork. LOL! He didn't like me saying people are stupid, so instead of THINKING about that, he had to go and PROVE it! LOLOL!  

      So, as I always do with the writers of Hate Mail, I called Mr. Temple out. Made my usual offer to meet and talk with him anytime he would like.  He suggested that Bob Smith is a Wimp with no "SET", for not hitting Doug Clark. Tells you a little about this guy, huh? So let's see how tough HE is.  Maybe he thinks hitting people you don't agree with is the way things are done, but I do not. Hitting is for Self-Defense ONLY. So, email me again when you are sober, Mr. Temple, and I will gladly meet with you and discuss things. Okay? ( He will NEVER meet with me, he is another "HIDER" with a big mouth and no guts).

      On a "saner" note, I took a drive through The Cemetery of the Evergreens today. I had never seen the entire place, only took a look at the Tilden Monument once. I was amazed at the age of some of the graves and saw so many names I had never heard before today. I also never realized how BIG the cemetery is. It would be such a shame to see it fall into the hands of the town and sales of plots be discontinued. There is a vast amount of empty space there. I intend to do whatever I can to help save our cemetery and I hope a lot of local folks will do the same. 

     No vital meetings this week, just Planning Board on Wednesday at 7:30. The Stewarts Shop is planning some upgrades, such as a Diesel Pump, which we really do need, and new fuel pumps elsewhere on the property. Nothing major, but definitely helpful. Where would we have been without Stewarts since the market closed?  They have been our saving grace, even adding products they didn't carry in the past, to make our lives a little easier. I hope that if we ever DO get a market, everyone will continue to patronize Stewarts and remember how much help they've been.

       Same goes for Bucky's Bagels. Chrissie also added more products and hours to help out with the loss of the market. 

      Some of us are starting a 40-day prayer commitment tomorrow, to pray daily for our leaders and our country. If anyone would like a copy of the prayer schedule, please let me know, and I will also post it here tomorrow so you can print it if you like. Also, expect to hear about a "Christian Revival Saturday" coming to New Lebanon this Spring.  On Saturday, September 22nd, the Town Picnic will be held at Shatford Park and should be a nice time for the local folks, especially kids. If the attendance is up, maybe it will be an annual event.  

          God Bless!  JJ

Occupy is Back  9-17-2012


         Well, they're Baaack. The un-washed, brain-dead crowd that hates the corporations that supply their needs, like cell phones, clothing, shoes, cameras, and the tents and sleeping bags they use when they trash our public parks. Idiots. Almost every one of these Libtards has a cell phone in hand while they shout about the businesses that create and supply service TO those phones. LOL.  They are stating today, that their "movement" carries on. Yes, it does. Their "movements" are quite obvious to us all, especially when they make them on police cars and under bushes in the parks our kids play in. Get close enough to an Occupy camp and you can smell their movement.

     They need baths, jobs, and a jail cell while they search the classifieds. At least THIS time, they are not being tolerated, and arrests are being made. FINALLY. You would think that these zombies might be concerned with the events in the Middle East, the killing of American Ambassadors and Soldiers based on a silly video that was made in AMERICA and was completely legal under our right to free speech. Our military needs to make a BOLD move over there, send a clear message to the Muslims that WE will not be ruled by Shariah Law in America, nor will we respect or protect the murderous cult they call Islam.  WE will not be politically correct when referring to them or to Islam, OR to Mohammed, OR to the Koran. They desire to destroy ALL other religions in the world and to kill those who refuse to convert to Islam. Not gonna happen, Abdul! 

      The Occupy Wall Street idiots need a REAL platform, and anti-Islam would keep them busy and off the streets. They are costing the rest of us a ton of bucks in police over-time and city clean-up after they move along and leave their filth behind them. They are drawing attention away from the REAL issues our country is dealing with, and THAT of course, is deliberate. Give them NO attention and they will crawl back into their caves when it gets cold outside, like all reptiles do. 

    Speaking of reptiles.......

                My Hate Mail author of the week, David Temple, of course does not exist, you know that,right? Anyone can get a disposable email address and use a false name. The person behind the email is not even a man, it is a woman. I believe she had a man WRITE the actual email, because even though she is not the brightest bulb in the lamp, she can spell a little bit better than the author. Still, the email contained numerous clues to the identity of the person behind it, and now I find it all the MORE entertaining. Especially since this person does not even LIVE in Lebanon. SO, like all the other haters, this person will never accept my invitation to meet and talk. 

       That's the thing about haters and Libtards. They have SO much MOUTH when they can hide behind false identities, but when challenged with taking ACTION or discussing their objections face to face, they run and hide. Which in turn, makes their "arguments" about as valid as their identities. Yet they are the FIRST ones to call other people WIMPS. This particular person also claims to be an expert on the Bible, but hasn't a CLUE. I AM NO expert on the Bible, but I know when someone tries to play God and take His place against His wishes and teachings, as this woman has, and does. I can also see a lie the minute it is uttered, and this person has lied so often and to so many, that it caused tremendous, irreparable  damage in her community and church.

      Now she is angry, because she has been asked to "Do the Right Thing" and return money and equipment to the rightful owners. Hence, the lashing-out.  And y'all WONDER why I am not a fan of close friendships? Why I do not TRUST humans? GEEZ! I'd rather have a pack of dogs for friends. THEY only bite when there is no other choice.

         Getting back to the Middle East, WHY are we still sending them millions of dollars? ALL foreign aid should be stopped immediately and used instead to beef up our defense programs and our borders.  LET them kill each other over there. Get our Ambassadors and journalists OUT, let our military WIPE the place off the map and concentrate on protecting Israel. The Arabs can take care of themselves and if they cannot, oh well. I resent our soldiers fighting and dying for a cause that is not ours and that they get zero appreciation for. LET Russia jump in there and subsidize them; if we spend the money we are wasting over there, on protecting America instead, they won't dare come against us. A STRONG military defense program is the number ONE guarantee of safety. 

      Not to mention the JOBS that would be created here at home if we went back to making weapons and military equipment and building a border wall. Get a CLUE, Washington.                                                                                                                                                                   Interesting Links Below:

Obama’s Mideast Incompetence Approaches the Criminal

Written on Sunday, September 16, 2012 by 

burn

At what point will Americans say “Enough”?

The events of the past week have pointed out, highlighted, circled in red ink and underlined the failure of Obama’s foreign policy and the vacuity of the top officials charged with our defense.

The violence in the Middle East has proven what a brilliantly apt metaphor Clint Eastwood’s empty chair was for a president who has not attended weeks’ worth of security briefings or one suspects paid much attention to what’s going on in the larger world.

In fact, rather than attend a security briefing after our ambassador was killed, Obama was running off to Las Vegas to raise money. The only thing surprising in this solipsistic behavior is that he didn’t try to raise it by gambling tax funds at the craps table.

The sycophantic media are just as clueless. Only three days before the 9/11 anniversary, AP ran the headline, “Terror Takes a Back Seat; Americans Safer Now.” Whoops.

Our embassies and diplomatic facilities were woefully under-defended. The facility in Libya did not even have any Marines; it was protected by Libyan security. In Egypt, the Marines were not allowed live ammunition. Lord knows what other ridiculous orders hamper our people at other embassies in the Middle East.

And now the violence isn’t confined to the Middle East. U.S. flags are being  burned in London. Universities in America are being evacuated due to bomb  threats attributed to al-Qaida.

Russia’s got warships in the Mediterranean near Syria and Israel. China and Russia are both running submarines just miles off our coastlines. Last month, it was acknowledged that a Russian sub had patrolled the Gulf of Mexico for weeks without being detected.

Our embassies are being attacked, our people killed, our flags burned throughout the Mideast, a region that was supposed to become our eternal allies because of the force of Obama’s winning personality.

Yet the best the administration can do is condemn a film no one has seen and that might even be part of a hoax or disinformation campaign to try to blame Israel, evangelical Christians and conservatives in general for a foreign policy in shreds.

While the FBI has issued a warning about the possibility of violence in America, the administration seems to be unwilling to do anything but  fiddle while Rome burns.

What King Obama doesn’t realize, perhaps, is that it’s not just the flag going up in smoke, it’s his presidency self-destructing. And not a moment too soon.

 Just for "David Temple"  9-22-2012


   Ahh, another illiterate email from "David Temple" who is not really David Temple. When I say "Illiterate", I MEAN illiterate. Where did these people go to school? Better yet, how did they graduate?  Chicago teachers want raises but if this is what the schools are turning loose on America, they need pay CUTS! 

      Not only can this person not spell, but he/she cannot form a thought on paper that is coherent. He also refuses to meet with me, like ALL the sissies with big mouths that hide behind false identities and throw-away email addresses. He bases his discontent on the fact that I am "insulting". LOL! Well, here is a sample of HIS rhetoric:

     1) He says he has spent months taking pictures of me around town and that I have "Pig Ears " that stick out from under my hat and 9 chins. Okay. Takes real intelligence to attack someone's looks, doesn't it? Just like kindergarten.

     2) He calls Bob Smith "half a man" with "no set".( Push him and see how wimpy he IS.)

     3) He claims that I was seen in a local diner, that he spelled, "DINNER", with 10 plates of food in front of me. LOL! I eat once a day and everyone who knows me, knows THAT. Ten plates would take me ten days. So not only does HE spew sick and twisted insults that I would NEVER say, he also LIES like a rug.

     4) This fool also claims that he is posting his own website with pictures and jokes about ME. Hey, it's a free country, do what you will. Just remember that taking pics of a person without their knowledge is stalking. Making statements about a person that have no proof behind them, is slander,So you must have your proof in hand and available, and sending emails with things that I would not even repeat here, is harassment. Just sayin'. Think before you act, unless you like jail. There are laws that must be adhered to when posting, take it from ME.

     5) He claims that people are laughing at me. GOOD! Means they are READING MY site. Also means I have brought pleasure to others, which is fine with me. If you get a chuckle at my expense, God Bless You, at least you are laughing.

        Ya see David, words are just words, sticks and stones. ACTIONS are what COUNT.  Do you attend any town meetings, or ask questions about where your tax money goes? Are you concerned about our kids and seniors, or about having honest and honorable local leaders? Have you EVER done anything to help someone else or your community? Do you ALWAYS hate people before taking some time to talk to and get to know them? I bet you have never read a book, or spent time in prayer for God's guidance. You are just an ignorant and unhappy hater that has nothing to do with your time.

      Your lack of intelligence comes through loud and clear in your emails, where you accuse ME of being insulting while YOU are throwing disgusting and false insults around like confetti. Apparently you aren't smart enough to see you are doing exactly what you accuse ME of doing!  Your statements are gross and infantile, is that the BEST you can DO? If so, I pity you. So far as calling Bob Smith a wimp, at least HE would FACE you! As would I! It is YOU who are afraid to make your sick comments face to face, and because of that, I will waste NO more of my valuable time on you. You are a weasel, a liar and a HUGE sissy. People like you are not worth another thought and certainly not worth my attention. This website is not for "personal" vendettas, it is a POLITICAL site, and as venomous as your comments are, this is not a political issue you are angry about, this is something much more personal.

     If you are indeed, who I believe you ARE, you do NOT want to start with me, you will NOT win. I know plenty about YOU and YOUR family too, remember? Two can play this game.

     Until and unless you decide to be a man, or a WOMAN, shut the heck up and go learn to read and write. ONE MORE email, threat, false statement, or any published photos of me, and the Troopers will be at your door. Your time would be better spent in becoming literate and trying to do something POSITIVE with your days. So, stop hiding behind your fake names and email addresses and FACE me!  I don't bite.  I am non-violent, so what are you afraid of? That you might LEARN something ?  Idiot.

 Thank You, My Friends!     9-22-2012


      It has been my experience about 90% of the time, that friends are fickle. I have been run-over by people I least suspected of being capable of such things, many,many times. Which is why I got better and better at profiling people BEFORE I let my guard down. Always look at the eyes, they are the windows to the soul. There are numerous other points, but the eyes are number one. The eyes never lie. I learned that the hard way, as most of us do. 

        I did a lot of praying today. I have friends who are ill or facing battles. My friend Lynn is STILL in the hospital after being shot months ago, and of course, our troops and our country are always in my prayers, as is our little town and its people. Today, I also had to pray about how to proceed with some things, and I was feeling a bit solitary in my need for direction. Jesus tells us in the Word, that we are NEVER alone, that He is with us always, and I believe that. So that's where I turned for guidance today. 

      His answer came tonight, when I suddenly began receiving emails from friends with "Special Talents", informing me that they are already working on my need! What a huge injection of love that was! I am elated. It isn't always easy to keep doing the right thing when people hate you for it. No one ENJOYS being hated by  anyone else, but especially by people who don't even really know them. When the hatred comes as a result of doing what God and the Law tell us is RIGHT, it is even harder, and exhausting. Having the troops ride in to your rescue as they did tonight, is a wonderful thing!

       I try to keep the Lord's words in the forefront of my mind at all times. He warns us that taking a stand for what is right and good and true, will bring persecution down upon us. He also said, "Remember, before they hated YOU, they first hated ME".  The purest, kindest, most blameless man to ever walk upon this earth, was persecuted, tortured, and hung upon a cross to die. All because we humans are all capable of extreme evil. Each and every one of us. It's up to us, to choose how to deal with that capacity to do harm to others who are blameless. Should we fight for justice and bring the guilty to judgement? Absolutely. Yet at the same time, we must expect to be abused for doing it. It's just the way of this world and the cruel and hateful people who live in it. The day will come that everyone will stand before God, whether you believe that or not, it will happen.

     HE knows everything you have ever said or done to others and He will decide if it was for His Glory or our own, and where we will spend eternity.  If you never accepted Him as Lord and Saviour, He will tell you that He never knew you, and you will be dismissed from His presence. What a horrible thing to contemplate! Which is why it is impossible for me to understand when people who claim to be Christians, do evil things to others. I have seen more hateful treatment of Christians, BY Christians, than I care to think about. If you can't trust a sister or brother in Christ, who CAN you trust?  God. You can trust God.  I put my trust in Him again today, and he sent me extra hands and nimble minds to help me. He gave me renewed strength as He always does when I am spent.

      Tonight I will pray for my enemies and haters, that they may know inner peace and rest. I will pray for Barack Obama, that he might come to see the truth and know God. To my praying friends, I ask that you do the same. Also, please keep the Koepp family in prayer, and Doug and Cindy Banker. Jim Cummings, Mary-Lou, Kevin Smith,and our local leaders. The First Baptist Church of Lebanon Springs has a prayer meeting every Sunday night at 6. It's a casual, comfortable and welcoming time. Feel free to attend.  Spend time with your loved ones tomorrow!    God Bless.  JJ

 Stan is STILL the MAN !!!    9-24-2012


    Remember the old Mother Goose rhyme, "There was a Crooked Man..." ?  That must have been written by a Conservative from Lebanon. Probably about our very first, Town Supervisor. LOLOL!!!  So, speaking of crooked men, guess who is back in my sights? Stan the Man. 

       Last year, I had some calls from people in Chatham Village, wanting to know how Lebanon got rid of Stan and asking for help. Then I was contacted by a man from Claverack that was having HUGE issues with Stan. Today, I was contacted by another resident of Claverack who is being verbally abused by Stan and falsely penalized as a result of his illegal actions. This caller actually came right out and said that all the attorneys in Columbia County are crooked and corrupt and she refuses to hire one from here! LOLOL!!  See? We're NOT the only ones! 

        I had a few interesting pieces of info for the caller as well, as you can imagine. Until Kent Pratt was appointed as ZEO and Building Inspector,  Lebanon had suffered for YEARS under tyrannical ZEOs that made up the rules as they went along. If they liked you, anything you did was fine. If they did NOT like you, you couldn't mow your lawn without a permit.   God Bless Kent Pratt for being the courteous, fair and honest man he is. Now, if we could only get the REST of them........

         Anyway, this caller related things to me that were SO familiar it was funny! Stan throwing people out of "HIS" office without hearing what they had to say, refusing permits without cause, violating people unfairly and with no grounds, trying to exert authority he does not have, etc.,etc. Same old Stan. What IS it with these wimpy town boards, that they ALLOW him to continue to run rough-shod over the taxpayers? Not only THAT, but they continually re-appoint him?!  Philmont, Chatham Village, Claverack, what are you people thinking?  Don Rickles at a Bar Mitzvah is less abusive than Stan!  For this, he is paid handsomely. At one time, I figured Stan was cashing-in about $80,000.00 a year for being a rotten you-know-what! Must be nice, huh? Add that to his Social Security and any pension he might be getting and it's a nice chunk of change.

         Guess it DOES pay to be vicious. I don't care enough about money to sink that low, thank you. So, I sent the caller in the right direction and got 'em started on the road to Stan Impeachment. The Chatham people never took my advice, they were too frightened. Imagine living in fear of the ZEO?  Unbelievable. 

          I hear our First Annual Community Picnic went very well. We planned to attend, but as usual, farming got in the way. This IS the last week of sweet corn, thank goodness. The the combining starts, so I am still a farm-widow until November.  The picnic attendance was pretty good for the first year and the short time available to advertise it. Funny, our Town Supervisor did not attend, nor did Councilmen Doug Clark or K.B Chittenden.  Hmm.    Brucey was there, and that's another 2 points for HIM.  The Larabees worked long and hard on this event and I would like to thank them for their efforts!  

       Six weeks to D-Day, folks! I pray that everyone is thinking hard about how they will vote. FOR America, or Against? The first debate is October 3rd, and I look forward to that with great enthusiasm. HOW will Obama speak without a Tele-Prompter? Oh, I know! They'll put one of those little microphones in his big ears and play Cyrano De Bergerac! LOLOL!!  Michelle will feed him his lines and Hillary will stand by in case Michelle gets tired. I can't WAIT! Maybe Kirsten Gillibrand and Chuck Schumer will hold up cue-cards. 

       Enjoy the links!              JJ

Ryan to Newsmax: Obama Turning Medicare into 'Piggybank' for Obamacare

Vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan defended the Romney campaign’s plan to reform Medicare and charged in an exclusive interview with Newsmax.TV Saturday that President Obama is turning the entitlement into a “piggybank” to pay for his unpopular healthcare program.

“President Obama is turning Medicare into a piggybank to pay for Obamacare,” Ryan said. “We propose to get rid of that because we propose to repeal Obamacare.”

In a wide-ranging interview, Ryan also said:

  • He and Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney favor increased competition for healthcare providers to “strengthen and save” Medicare.
  • President Obama is running a campaign of “division” and “distortion” to distract the American people” from the worst economic recovery since the Great Depression.
  • A Romney administration would approach Congress with a broad framework for tax reform after the election rather than listing specific loopholes that must be closed.
  • Foreign policy under the Obama administration is “pulling apart at the seams” and continued U.S. foreign aid to Egypt should be tied to a continuation of the Camp David Accords.

The Wisconsin congressman, who chairs the powerful House Budget Committee, dismissed the Democratic line that seniors would pay as much as $6,000 more in out-of-pocket expenses under the Romney/Ryan Medicare plan.

“First of all that statistic was not only kind of misleading then. It’s completely inaccurate now. This is what politicians do when they don’t want to talk about their record,” he charged, noting that the Republican plan is not unlike the plan proposed by the Bipartisan Commission on the Future of Medicare under President Bill Clinton.

He said that Obama will take $716 billion away from Medicare to pay for Obamacare and “in Obamacare, President Obama will vow to appoint 15 unelected, unaccountable bureaucrats, who are in charge of cutting Medicare every year in ways that will lead to denied care for current seniors.”

 Ignoring NOISE?!?   9-25-2012


    It is no secret that I think Barack Hussein Obama  is a FREAK of nature.  In the America I remember from my childhood, this creep would NEVER, EVER have seen the Senate, MUCH less the Presidency of the Greatest Country on Earth! He SHOULD have been prevented from campaigning for any political position in this America, but he was NOT. He ran for the highest position in the World, and WON, not fairly, or honestly, but that is the nature of political corruption, racism,  Liberalism, and a Lazy population. The American Majority turned their heads away from the Truth until it was too late, and the Master of Destruction was sitting in our Oval Office, Hell-Bent on destroying our Freedoms, our Military Might, our Traditions and our very Moral Fiber.

     MUCH damage has been done as a result. American Morale is at an all-time low, unemployment and home foreclosures are at an all-time HIGH. America is now in more financial debt that at any time in recorded history! Our public schools and our colleges are pushing the immoral, Liberal agenda upon our children,  Racial tensions have escalated, foreign relations have deteriorated, the persecution of Christian and Conservative citizens is out of control, and we are being literally INVADED by un-desirables who cross our weak borders illegally.  Our closest and dearest ally, Israel, has been essentially abandoned by the Obama administration, which is not only an abomination, but a possible death sentence to BOTH Israel and the U.S. 

    The Bible is VERY CLEAR on the consequences of coming against Israel, of failing to support and protect her. Yet THIS President has ignored that warning, he has ignored the obvious signs of what is happening in Iran and all across the Middle East and failed to apply those signs to Bible Prophecy or even to human morality. Obama will NOT protect or defend Israel, he has not protected or defended AMERICA! Below, I have posted a link to a video of an interview of Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, whom I greatly respect and love. Please take a few moments to listen to this very strong and intelligent man.

       Obama has stated that Israel's warnings about Iran and their nuclear program, is "Noise that he tries to ignore" !!!!!!!!   As a Muslim and the son of a Communist mother, Obama's sympathies lie with the Muslim countries and agendas, and NOT with Israel. NOT with America.  Where do YOU stand?

 The War with Islam and Barry Soetoro   9-26-2012


    Obama and Islam are synonymous to ME.  Think what YOU want, but that's MY feeling. Here are some interesting items you might find enlightening.  (answer to question above? Harrison J. Bounel is a dead American. The Social Security number was HIS. NOW, it is Barack Hussein Obama and Barry Soetoro's Social Security number. Now THAT is worth thinking about, ain't it?!?)



The War With Islam

September 26, 2012 by 

The War With Islam
UPI
Egyptians protested outside the U.S. embassy in Cairo against a film mocking Islam.

Around and around we go. Violence and death of innocents on Islamic soil seems to be a perpetual phenomenon. The most recent round of senseless violence was said to have been sparked by the surfacing of a sophomoric YouTube video that pokes fun at Muhammad.

A handful of Muslims in the eastern Libya city of Benghazi became so enraged by the incident that they attacked the U.S. consulate, killing U.S. ambassador Chris Stevens along with three other Americans.

It didn’t bother the executioners that Stevens had fought beside Libyans to free Libya from dictator Moammar Gadhafi, who had ruled the country for 34 years.

Also, protesters in Egypt scaled the walls of the U.S. embassy in Cairo and replaced an American flag with an Islamic banner. Again, Islamic extremists have problems with their short-term memory. It was the United States that supported the revolution in Egypt that removed that nation’s dictator, Hosni Mubarak.

Those acts were the first such assaults on U.S. diplomatic facilities in either country. There was a flurry of excuses for the murder of Americans whose only sin was trying to build Islamic civilizations in a region that refuses to become civilized.

Let me get back to that YouTube film whose very existence justifies a death sentence even to those who had nothing to do with its production.

You see, the video goes so far as to mock Islam’s holy prophet.

I don’t know if some of you watch the TV show “Family Guy” which FOX, of all networks, produces. It sometimes makes fun of Jesus Christ. In one episode Christ is shown as a hippie working at a used record store. That hasn’t resulted in attacks on the show’s creator, Seth MacFarlane, by Christians. Call it free speech and the Western world’s ability to laugh at itself even when it comes to our religious beliefs. We certainly don’t go on murderous rampages every time our sensibilities are hurt. That is not the way for much of Islam.

Further evidence of violent Islamic tendencies was provided last week when al-Qaida’s affiliate in North Africa urged Muslims in the region to kill U.S. government representatives.

“We encourage all Muslims to continue to demonstrate and escalate their protests and to kill their (American) ambassadors and representatives or to expel them to cleanse our land from their wickedness,” read the statement from al-Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb.

The group also called the killing of Stevens “the best gift you (can) give to his arrogant and unjust administration.”

There’s more. Also last week, a Taliban-allied insurgent group claimed responsibility for a suicide attack that killed at least 12 people, including eight South Africans, in Afghanistan. The group said it was in response to the YouTube video.

A spokesman for Islamic militant group Hizb-i-Islami said a 22-year-old woman named Fatima carried out the attack. She drove a car packed with 660 pounds of explosives into a van on a road leading to the Kabul International Airport.

Suicide attacks by women are rare in Afghanistan — maybe because it’s a sin for a woman to drive a automobiles.

“The anti-Islam film hurt our religious sentiments and we cannot tolerate it,” spokesman Haroon Zarghhon told The Associated Press. “There had been several young men who wanted to take revenge, but Fatima also volunteered and we wanted to give a chance to a girl … to tell the world we cannot ignore any anti-Islam attack.”

That’s lucky for Fatima — although, I am not too sure what she is going to do with the 72 virgins that are waiting for her.

Radical jihadists can’t even come up with original reasons to be anti-American; they have to spend their days scanning YouTube to find some insult. Don’t these Islamic believers have better things to do, like build schools and roads? Yet it was determined that murder had to be meted out because some idiot made fun of Muhammad.

Isn’t it time for the West to wash our hands of Islam? A growing part of Islam, regardless of whether President Barack Obama will admit it, is at war with the United States and Western society. During the Cold War, the United States faced rational and educated leaders of the Kremlin. The opposition leaders in this war are crazed religious fanatics who have already demonstrated they are crazy enough to blow up themselves — and often many innocent Muslims who happen to be in the way — because they have nothing better to do than to kill Westerners.

You can blame it on the brain trust of Islamic militants. One man that helped shape al-Qaida’s philosophy was Sayyid Imam al-Sharif, also known as Dr. Fadl.

In an article for The New Yorker, Lawrence Wright relayed Dr. Fadl’s doctrine:

Fadl contends that the rulers of Egypt and other Arab countries are apostates of Islam. “The infidel’s rule, his prayers, and the prayers of those who pray behind him are invalid,” Fadl decrees. “His blood is legal.” He declares that Muslims have a duty to wage jihad against such leaders; those who submit to an infidel ruler are themselves infidels, and doomed to damnation. The same punishment awaits those who participate in democratic elections. “I say to Muslims in all candor that secular, nationalist democracy opposes your religion and your doctrine, and in submitting to it you leave God’s book behind,” he writes. Those who labor in government, the police, and the courts are infidels, as is anyone who works for peaceful change; religious war, not political reform, is the sole mandate. Even devout believers walk a tightrope over the abyss. “A man may enter the faith in many ways, yet be expelled from it by just one deed,” Fadl cautions. Anyone who believes otherwise is a heretic and deserves to be slaughtered.

So here we stand in 2012; the Middle Ages intersect the Internet.

Obama continues to waste billions of dollars in aid to Islamic nations — even countries like strife-riddled Egypt which collects $1.5 billion a year from Washington. The Obama Administration played a crucial role in the overthrow of Mubarak only to witness the ascension to power of the latest Egyptian despots who are even worse than Mubarak. A recent headline from the Daily Beast said it all: “Obama’s Foolish Embrace of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood.”

Mr. President: If by chance you get re-elected, please change your policies regarding Islam. Try not to take a society out of the Stone Age. Too many believers in Muhammad (like your father was) are committed to killing those who have done nothing other than invest themselves in trying to bring a better future to a rundown region which is becoming the globe’s gutter.

Hopefully, Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney will prevail in November. If so, he must understand he has an undeclared war on his hands with much of Islam. The Muslim Brotherhood is gaining murderous momentum throughout the Mideast — especially in Egypt. It controls the Suez Canal, a choke point for petroleum and other essential trade.

To date, the Muslim Brotherhood has not renounced the doctrine of its late founder, Hassan al-Banna: “It is the nature of Islam to dominate, not to be dominated, to impose its law on all nations and to extend its power to the entire planet.”

Yours in good times and bad,

–John Myers

 UNBELIEVABLE !!!!!                                 9-27-2012



                  I am absolutely appalled at the extreme stupidity of the American people!!!!!!

 Yeah, I KNOW there are no absolutes,  there are many intelligent and even genius-level minds out there, but the number of un-educated, un-aware and just plain DUMB Americans is downright frightening!  I know MANY people personally that can barely read and write, much less comprehend what they read.  Just look at last week's Hater. THOSE emails were SO pitiful, SO unintelligible, it was SAD. That person very likely attended Lebanon Schools.  WHAT are our schools DOING? 

              HOW can students graduate elementary school with little or NO reading and writing skills, no clue as to the history of the country they live in, no interest or knowledge of current events? I KNOW that just about every home in America has an idiot box, a.k.a  a Television. Do people watch the news or change the channel and watch South Park?  Survivor? Gay Eye for the Straight Guy? WHAT?  Entertainment is not a crime, but  GEEZ, mix in a little EDUCATION.  I am no mega-brain, I was an average student and my math skills stink, but I can read and comprehend and I can write a legible sentence without mis-spelling every other word. I watch several TV programs purely for the entertainment value, but I also watch the news, and read the papers and am able to sort out the Liberal bias that runs rampant through both.

           When you watch the videos I have posted links to below, you SHOULD be left speechless at what you will see and hear.  I DO believe it is time to hold teachers accountable. Are you listening, Chicago?  I do NOT like Howard Stern, but what he exposes here is important and shocking. God Help Us! 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

==============================================================================



SOO Much to Talk About!!    9-28-2012


      I was given a Fortune Cookie yesterday.  Naturally, the moment I crinkled the wrapper, I had a drooling German Shepherd on each side of me. They shared the cookie, I got the Fortune. The fortune said; "In Youth and Beauty there is No Wisdom". More a quotation than fortune, but painfully accurate, nonetheless. 

      Wisdom does indeed belong to the mature. There are many young people who are very intelligent whether they are beautiful or not, but intelligence and wisdom are as different from one another as Obama and Romney. People can be born intelligent, but NO ONE is born Wise.  Wisdom is not something you can learn by reading a book such as , "Wisdom for Dummies", or by taking a class. Wisdom must be "earned" through time and experience, by making mistakes and learning from them and by LIVING and DOING.  It takes time to become wise, which is why we usually hear the word "Wisdom" along with the word "old", as in the Wise Old Owl. 

      The Amish have a saying that goes like this; "Too soon oldt and too late schmart". Sadly, those few words say it all. How many times have you heard someone say, "If I only knew THEN what I know NOW!".  LOL!   I've said that a hundred times myself.  Still, just as wisdom and intelligence are very different things, I believe that wisdom and Common Sense are closely linked.  When we are young, we lack the Common Sense that we have hopefully learned and earned by the time we are middle-agers. 

       There are quite a few radio hosts conducting "man-on the-street" interviews lately.  Stern is far from alone.  I gave you links to a few of these events and they were shocking,yes?  Glenn Beck did one today, and found that MOST of the people questioned did not even know who the Vice-President is or that HE would take over if Obama should be incapacitated!  NONE of them could name the last four presidents.  Not ONE of them could explain WHY they should vote for Obama instead of Romney. A LOT of anti-Romney people, could not cite a single reason for NOT liking him.  A few even said that they believed OBAMA could solve the economic crisis and unemployment in America!!!!  Are you KIDDING me?!?  No one knew that Romney is a highly successful businessman who would be an excellent choice to solve the financial issues in this country! 

     Some believed that Obama was a Mormon and that Romney was black. The stupidity went on and on and on.  Since this has been bothering me a LOT of late, I decided to find out WHY Americans are so STUPID, so Unplugged from the world around them. So I went to someone I felt would know the answers, and he did. I questioned a retired, high-school English teacher. I'll call him Ed, (since that's his name). LOL! 

    I asked Ed if he could help me to understand how our kids are graduating high schools with no reading and writing skills and NO idea of what government is or how it works. He laughed. He them went on to tell me a story about how he had been asked to assist with the Regents results a few years ago. The teacher who handed him the paperwork gave him a warning. She said, "This will break your heart,Ed."  He asked what she meant and she told him he would "see".  He DID see, and very quickly.  

     Student work that he would have failed a 7th grader for when he was teaching, was now being graded as C work in HIGH SCHOOL!  WHY? Ed said it was to save the kids from "Feeling Bad About Themselves"!  Self-Esteem??!? Reminds me of the changes in school sports, where no one wins or loses in the lower grades, because it might harm their developing sensibilities.  I'm sorry, but aren't we expected to teach our children about sportsmanship, graceful losing, fairness, and that good performance yields positive results? Isn't that a part of what builds good character? According to the Liberals, no. We must nurture their little feelings and turn the world upside-down by sending the message that you can get and be everything you want with NO effort on your part. Just WHINE loud enough and Nanny government will take care of you.

       Ed was appalled at what he saw, and told the school that there was "NO integrity in such a policy and would they please never ask him to help again".  Ed is right.  Yet, there is MUCH more to the lowering of the academic bar than avoiding the bruising of self-esteem. Our government has for generations, been slowly lowering that bar, intentionally. Yes, it is being done on purpose, slowly and methodically. Poorly educated, dumbed-down societies are easy to control. That was tragically evident in the 2008 presidential election and again NOW when we see the number of Americans that plan to vote for Obama. They simply do not SEE or understand the agenda of the far left Democrats or the devastating consequences to the future of this country. 

       The dumb just don't GET IT. I guess the REAL question we should be asking, is what kind of people are teaching our children in America's public schools today??  Obviously, they are not honorable people of integrity or conscience. The young ones are the product of the Dumbing-Down agenda themselves! They got the A grade when they deserved the C.  The unions and tenure protect them regardless of whether they are capable teachers or not. Chicago teachers are on strike as we speak , in protest of raises being commensurate to performance. Well gee, the kids are graded higher then they deserve, so the teachers expect no less for themselves!  They want the high pay, the benefits, and the union protections in exchange for loosing illiterate zombies into society. I don't THINK so! 

     It is time to require PERFORMANCE and RESULTS from our teachers, our State Departments of Education and our KIDS!  END tenure and evaluate teacher performance EVERY year!  NO child who cannot read or write, or hold an intelligent conversation, should EVER be graduated. Teachers who do not or cannot teach, should be fired.  Teachers who fail tests, should receive an F grade!  This is still AMERICA, still the country that once prided itself on excellence, on its history and traditions. We need to stand up and demand NO LESS today!  Home-School if you can, and if you can't, at least get involved in what YOUR kids are and are not learning in school. Grade your child's  teachers and be actively involved in up-grading our schools and curriculum.  Demand excellence and accept nothing less. 

      It is no wonder that so many Americans don't like Mitt Romney. He is too intelligent for them to understand. They resent his financial success, rather than seeing it as the result of hard work and determination, which was once the American way. They also HATE the idea that their government hand-outs might be taken away and they MIGHT have to EARN their own way!  THIS is why Romney is not popular. Half of America will choose the Black man who is not even black, but IS a Muslim, Socialist, Liar, and a ghost with NO history that can be confirmed, rather than the American-Born and bred, Patriotic, God-Loving, war veteran, and successful entrepreneur who can put America back on track. All due to stupidity and laziness, compliments of our public schools. 

       Parents are far from blameless here too, and so are Grandparents. Plug IN, people. Pay attention to your kid's and grand-kid's education and give them what the schools will not. Fill in the gaps and be responsible. Bring the bar back UP where it belongs and demand the BEST for our kids, instead of the molly-coddling, Liberal luvvy crap that sends them into the world unarmed and unaware. If we don't do it, who WILL?!?

Well, boys and girls, today the fox is guarding the hen house.
 The wolves will be herding the sheep!

Obama appointed two devout Muslims to homeland security posts.
 Feel地 safer ??

Obama and Janet Napolitano appointed Arif Alikhan, a devout Muslim, as Assistant Secretary for Policy Development.
 DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano swore-in Kareem Shora, a devout Muslim, who was born in Damascus, Syria, as ADC National Executive Director as a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council (HSAC). 

NOTE:
 Has anyone ever heard a new government official being identified as a devout Catholic, a devout Jew or a devout Protestant...? 
Just wondering. 

Devout Muslims being appointed to critical Homeland Security positions?
 Doesn't this make you feel safer already?? That should make our home land much safer, huh!?

Was it not "Devout Muslim men" that flew planes into U.S. buildings 9 years ago?
Was it not a Devout Muslim who killed 13 at Fort Hood ?
Please forward this important information to any who cares about the future of our Country.
Checked this on Snopes.com and its TRUE!

Over  the TOP !!!        9-29-2012



                  I am very open and honest about my feelings toward Liberals.  I literally DETEST everything they say and do and believe.  They are responsible for everything sinful, amoral and detestable in America since 1960. Liberals are DESTROYING our lives and I don't know about YOU, but I have had MORE than enough. 

                 My dear friend, Rev. Dr. Jack Fucci of New Jersey, sent me this link today along with a warning that it would upset me. He was SOOOO right! Upset doesn't even begin to cover how this short video made me feel.  Take 3 minutes to watch this, then come back and read on.


http://www.ebaumsworld.com/video/watch/82816339/


                       Now, I have watched and enjoyed Samuel L. Jackson movies over the years and I think he is a gifted actor.  I HAVE heard of late that he has taken a lot of stands in support of Obama and of Liberalism in general.  I had no idea HOW bad it was!  The man has a right to his opinion as do we ALL, howEVER, to make a video to be viewed by the public, with the deplorable content of THIS video , is inexcusable!   I don't care WHAT political party he is associated with, this is NOT okay!  
 
                      This "actor", uses the F-Word over and over and over, to and about children ! The little girl uses the F-Word at the end. The entire Jackson movement is entitled, "WTFU"!!!! WOW, what a shining example of integrity this is for the Democratic Party, huh? If I were a Democrat and saw this video, I would be changing parties TOMORROW!  THIS is what the Obama supporters ARE. This is what Obama IS. Trash! Human Puke-Buckets.  
                       
                       Jackson has that little girl warn her siblings about the possible loss of their "Right to Gay Marriage" and "Planned Parenthood Services", i.e, ABORTION. Since WHEN, do we USE children to spread messages to other children that they need to support murder and deviance? How would you feel if this idiot spoke to your family the way he speaks to the people in this video?  You don't want to KNOW how I would react!  How DARE he make a video this disgusting and deplorable, and how DARE any American citizen support or condone it!  It's very simple,people; if you don't like what America stands for, get the H_LL OUT! It's a BIG world, go somewhere else. 

                     To the Hollywood Liberals, I say this: "Where in this world, can you go and make billions of dollars for pretending to be someone else in front of a camera?  Only in America. You made your fortune HERE, you live HERE, your fans are HERE. Do any of you really believe that you will be exempt from Socialism because you are rich and famous? Fat chance. Yet you support the Occupy Wall Street scumbags, who support Socialism and despise the wealthy. YOU are the wealthy! YOU are the very people that will be bearing the extra tax burden if Obama has his way! That's how brilliant you all are! "

                     I have friends and family that are absolutely HOOKED on movies. They go to the theater every week, rent and buy DVDs, read PEOPLE Magazine, etc. Not ME. I have no interest in the lives or work of Hollywood people, nor do I think they deserve the money they make. Yet to many, they are GODS. Well guess what? These "celebrities", use toilet paper and get pimples, and pick their noses, like every human being in the rest of the world. They are far from special, in fact, a majority of them are totally without morals.  Sadly, they have the access to the media that most of us do not have, and they USE it to further the destruction of American values and greatness. They throw $50,000.00 a plate dinners for the Obama Campaign, they glorify addiction, adultery, and every other gross and contrary human behavior known to man. 
 
                     Again, we are ALL to blame. Every time you buy,rent, or attend a movie, buy a celebrity magazine or book, or one of those trashy newspapers that Gail Heinsohn should be writing for, you SUPPORT the Liberal Agenda. You put YOUR money, into THEIR pockets. Not JJ. No way. I have NEVER read those publications, and I am not fond of movie watching, but after seeing this video, I am now an official Hollywood Boycotter.  Imagine for one minute, if this video had been done by Jon Voight, a notable Conservative actor. Can you hear the outcry and whining that would have resulted immediately?!?!  I CAN!  The Liberal media would pound him into the dirt and kick him when he was dead. Yet a LIBERAL actor can do this deplorable thing and nothing is done about it. Isn't this use of children against everything your parents taught you? It is exploitation of children, plain and simple, and Jackson should be arrested.

                  You know what WILL happen? Absolutely NOTHING. Jackson is rich,famous,Liberal and Black. He has every protection in existence, and he KNOWS it. I have sent this link to everyone on my email list and asked them to all forward it on to everyone on THEIR email lists as well as on their Facebook pages. I am also asking all my Conservative,Republican and Christian friends to write letters to the Screen Actors Guild, protesting the behavior of Jackson. Boycott his movies. 

                  In addition, I have to ask a few questions of my friends who happen to be Democrats. What are you THINKING? HOW can you support a party that has gone so far left and that represents every sinful and disgusting human behavior? Open your eyes and ears and LOOK at what the Democratic Party has become. How can you choose to be affiliated with such filth? SHAME on YOU!  Join ANY other party, I don't care, there are hundreds to choose from. ANYTHING but Democrat!  To those of you who plan to vote for a Democrat for Congress or for Obama as President, remember this: 1) IF Obama wins again, YOU will be responsible for the destruction of America as we have always known and loved it. 2) A vote for these people, especially for Obama, is TREASON and BLASPHEMY, PERIOD.
 
               So go ahead and pull the Dem lever in November, steal your kid's futures and sentence us all to Tyranny, YOU have to live with your decisions. So will everyone else.

 October 2012 Entries




 MOMENTUM !!            10-1-2012


               There's isn't any fresh news to tell tonight, though there are things being done. We are biding our time, waiting on state and county as usual. In the meantime, I am keeping a promise I made to myself months ago; that in October I would start posting all the results of the past 3 years research on Obama, every day from now until the election. If I can manage to change ONE person's vote from Dem to Republican, it will be worth it.  In addition, new info comes in all day, every day, and once it is fact-checked, I will pass it along.

                   Tonight I have a good number of links and articles to share with those of you who care to seek the truth about the Communist in Chief. I noticed today, that the Democrats are now attacking Doheny for owning his own island. LOL!  The wealthy have been added to the target collection of the haters. Now, it is a crime to be rich, whether you EARNED it or not! Laziness and jealousy have now made it politically incorrect to have more than the next guy. Remind you of anything? Um, smells like Socialism to ME!

        The black woman with the 15 kids by three baby-daddies, ( in the link I sent you last week), was very clear about HER manner of thinking. She popped out 15 little babies and feels that the rest of the country should support them! She could have gotten FREE birth-control anytime she wanted it. If her children have no shoes, is that the fault of Bill  Gates or Donald Trump? No, it's HER fault, the fault of the baby-daddies and the fault of the hand-out, enabling, Liberal social programs. You and I owe that human waste absolutely NOTHING. We SHOULD pray for her kids, but other than that, she is responsible for the consequences of her choices. 

            We are ALL responsible for ourselves and our choices, regardless of color, religion, social status, or ethnicity. When God said to take care of the widows and children, He MEANT "Widows and Children". When He said give to the poor, He meant to give from your heart as you are moved to do so, not because the Government has ORDERED you to do it or taken it from your hard-earned paycheck against your will !!! Even GOD never said anything about being OBLIGATED, but to CHOOSE what we will give, to whom, and how much. Our hearts are judged by our "Joyful Giving", giving by choice, not because the government reached into our pockets and STOLE it. Since they steal more and more every year, what do we have LEFT to give joyfully?

             I am still fuming over the Samuel L. Jackson video and the fact that if that had been done by a Conservative, arrests would have been made. I am disgusted that Ann Coulter was a guest on the View, and all five of the Liberal witches that host that piece of garbage show, attacked her as a group! Someone sent me a link to THAT today,too! GAG! Don't waste your valuable time on the brain-dead,Ann, we have more important work for your brilliant mind! I also hope Ann took a long shower with a stiff brush when she got home from THAT appearance! I wouldn't sit at the same table with Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar! EWWW! 

              The escalation of the Liberal, "In-Your-Face" push in the past few months is very evident, especially in the media. Do NOT believe them! They poll Democrats, then relate the results as in Obamas favor. DUH! They demonize Romney for having money, Ryan for being Catholic, and both of them for being white and having REAL birth-certificates! They look us in the eye and LIE, LIE, LIE. Just like Obama!                           You all know I am voting for Chris Gibson for Congress, because I checked his voting history and found him to be genuinely Conservative. Schreibman on the other hand, was here in Lebanon for a Meet-and Greet, and could not state ONE issue that he had a strong stand on. Zippo. Personally, until his name appeared on campaign signs, I had never even HEARD of the guy. 

       Assembly? There isn't a person within a thousand miles that can hold a candle to Steve McClaughlin. Hands Down.  This is a guy I would LOVE to see in Congress next time around. Just an all-around , terrific human. 

       Don't forget to watch the first debate this week, Wednesday night! Enjoy the links and remember to Pray for America.   JJ

Civil War In The U.S.? Brace Yourself

Share this on Facebook Share this on Twitter



You have to hand it to Obama. At least he is keeping his promises.

July 02, 2008 – Colorado Springs, Colorado: Presidential candidate Barack Obama announces, “We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”

And now the Department of Homeland Security is busy purchasing bulletproof checkpoint booths; riot gear, hollow point bullets, and now sniper grade ammunition, among other things.

“This is tyranny, “ says Alex Jones at InfoWars.


In March of this year, the Department of Homeland Security purchased 450 million rounds of .40 caliber hollow point bullets, even though these types of bullets have been illegal in international warfare since 1899.

Since November of 2011, the DHS has purchased a total of 1.4 billion rounds of ammunition—and now they recently released a series of new purchase orders on the FedBizOpps website requesting over 2 million more rounds of sniper-grade ammo.

So ask yourself why the federal government is busy purchasing checkpoint booths, anti-radiation pills, and large assault vehicles, and why they are so vague and dismissive when someone presses them to explain why.



Obama is nationalizing industries (automakers, the internet, healthcare) and going around Congress to impose his agenda (Net Neutrality, the Dream Act, cybersecurity). America is now paying the price for the “hope and change” propaganda of 2008.

And he is placing the DHS front and center as the Gestapo of the United States.

This is the same agency that gropes you at the airport (and steals your belongings with increasingly regularity); and they also released a report warning of radical groups in the U.S. comprised of Christians, war veterans, pro-life supporters and small government promoters.

Are conservatives now going to be labeled as “terrorists” by the Obama administration and singled out for destruction?

His administration has targeted many conservative individuals and groups for auditing; it is no reach to assume he will use the power of the government to stamp out any dissenters.


As Obama clears government agencies for firepower, he is working to take away our rights to bear arms and defend ourselves. Consider:

  • The Obama administration is working with the United Nations to disarm all Americans through the Small Arms Treaty.
  • He has used his corrupt Attorney General Eric Holder and his comrades at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms (ATF) to sell arms to Mexico in an effort to force Congress to limit our Second Amendment rights.
  • Under an expansion of the civil forfeiture doctrine, Obama has just given the ATF the power to seize your firearms if they choose to, without due process, and even if you are not under investigation. Under Obama’s new decree, if the ATF says they are going to confiscate your firearms, they can.
  • The draft cybersecurity order, which would place all activities on the Internet under the jurisdiction of the DHS, included gun control language, encouraged by Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY). When that cybersecurity bill didn’t pass, Obama began drafting one of his own, which he plans to introduce by Executive Order, … will that EO contain limits on our Second Amendment right to bear arms?


If you weren’t already concerned about the power the Department of Homeland Security is amassing, you should be now—especially because we don’t have a President who respects the Constitution and the rights it gives us.

The ACLU made a Freedom of Information Act request and found that since 2009…during Obama’s entire presidential term…Justice Department spying on Americans has increased 64 percent.

Be aware that former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates said that defeating terrorism will require the use of more “soft power,” meaning civilians will need to contribute more. And he wasn’t just touting Big Sis Janet Napolitano’s line of “see something, say something;” the Associated Press reported that he was calling for the “creation of new government organizations, including a permanent group of civilian experts with a wide range of expertise who could be sent abroad on short notice as a supplement to U.S. military efforts.”

The Department of Defense’s Civilian Expeditionary Workforce directive will establish that “soft power.”

Members of the DoD Civilian Expeditionary Workforce shall be organized, trained, cleared, equipped, and ready to deploy in support of combat operations by the military; contingencies; emergency operations; humanitarian missions; disaster relief; restoration of order; drug interdiction; and stability operations of the Department of Defense in accordance with DoD 3000.05

This is not something that can be ignored!

The DHS continues to request more firepower, their reasons for doing so continue to be vague, and Obama continues to give them more control over our daily lives. All this as he ignores the corruption and scandal going on within the agency itself, which is overrun with criminal allegations and corruption!

We must, as Alex Jones at InfoWars urges, become like Paul Revere and expose the purchases the DHS is making, while we lean on Congress to stop this military-like behavior by a domestic agency. Our Constitution and our Bill of Rights must be defended against all enemies, foreign and domestic.



Sincerely,

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Taxpayers spent $1.4 billion dollars on everything from staffing, housing, flying and entertaining President Obama and his family last year, according to the author of a new book on taxpayer-funded presidential perks.
In comparison, British taxpayers spent just $57.8 million on the royal family.
Author Robert Keith Gray writes in “Presidential Perks Gone Royal” that Obama isn’t the only president to have taken advantage of the expensive trappings of his office. But the amount of money spent on the first family, he argues, has risen tremendously under the Obama administration and needs to be reined in.
Gray told The Daily Caller that the $1.4 billion spent on the Obama family last year is the “total cost of the presidency,” factoring the cost of the “biggest staff in history at the highest wages ever,” a 50 percent increase in the numbers of appointed czars and an Air Force One “running with the frequency of a scheduled air line.”
“The most concerning thing, I think, is the use of taxpayer funds to actually abet his re-election,” Gray, who worked in the Eisenhower administration and for other Republican presidents, said in an interview with TheDC on Wednesday.
“The press has been so slow in picking up on this extraordinary increase in the president’s expenses,” Gray told TheDC. (RELATED: Five shocking truths about Michelle Obama)
Specifically, Gray said taxpayer dollars are subsidizing Obama’s re-election effort when he uses Air Force One to jet across the country campaigning.

If someone asks you what the main difference is between the Obama 
supporters and the Romney supporters, instead of stammering and stuttering and 
looking for an answer, just tell them that the Romney supporters sign their 
checks on the front, and the Obama supporters sign their checks on the back.
 

It’s that simple. 

-------------------------------------------------------------
FOUR (4) SIMPLE QUESTIONS WITH NO LOGICAL ANSWERS
CAN THESE BE EXPLAINED????
Four Simple Questions:
1. Back in 1961 people of color were called 'Negroes.' So how can the Obama 'birth certificate' state he is 'African-American' when the term wasn't even used at that time?

2. The birth certificate that the White House last released lists Obama's birth as August 4, 1961. It indicates that Barack Hussein Obama was his father. No big deal, right? At the time of Obama's birth, it also shows that his father is aged 25 years old, and that Obama's father was born in " Kenya , East Africa ". This wouldn't seem like anything of concern, except the fact that Kenya did not even exist until 1963, two whole years after Obama's birth, and 27 years after his father's birth. How could Obama's father have been born in a country that did not yet exist? Up and until Kenya was formed in 1963, it was known as the " British East Africa Protectorate".
3. On the birth certificate released by the White House, the listed place of birth is "Kapi'olani Maternity & Gynecological Hospital". This cannot be, because the hospital(s) in question in 1961
were called "KauiKeolani Children's Hospital" and "Kapi'olani Maternity Home" respectively. The name did not change to Kapi'olani Maternity & Gynecological Hospital until 1978 when these two hospitals merged. How can this particular name of the hospital be on a birth certificate dated 1961 if this name had not yet been applied to it until 1978?
http://www.kapiolani.org/women-and-children/about-us/default.aspx


4. Why hasn't this been discussed in the major media? Perhaps a clue comes from Obama's book. He states how proud he is of his father fighting in WW II. I'm not a math genius, so I may need some help from you here. Barack Obama's "birth certificate" says his father was 25 years old in 1961 when he was born. That should have put his father's date of birth at approximately 1936. WW II was basically between 1939 and 1945... Just how many 3 year olds fight in wars? Even in the later stages of WW II his father wouldn't have been more than 9. Does that mean that Mr. Obama is a liar, or simply chooses to alter the facts to satisfy his imagination for political purposes?
However, don't despair,
Our President still qualifies as a "liar"
Four Simple Questions:
Does anyone have any answers?
Where is the media?!

ZBA Meets Tonight  10-2-2012


       Tonight's ZBA Agenda includes the sign company for the Family Dollar, still working on getting their variance.  Even more interesting to me personally, is the fact that the Abode is trying to get a permit to open a Boarding House on their "Tax-Free" property. 

        As a resident of Shaker Road, fed up to my ears with the excessive traffic, the speeding, the overweight trucks,etc, that use THIS road daily rather then the Rt. 20 entrance, I object. Between Darrow School and the Abode, Shaker Road is a freeway. Letters to the Town Board, the Town Highway Super and the NYSP, have been 100% ignored. Now they want to add a BOARDING HOUSE?  They were already denied by the ZEO, and are now coming before the ZBA to appeal. 

       Interestingly enough, these are the very same people that have campers on their property ALL summer, and have ONLY  ONE of the TWO permits required to run a campground. If Howard Commander must comply, so must the Abode. For a property that has numerous historic buildings and a good 300 acres, the fact that they pay ZERO taxes to the town is bad enough. Now they want to add more people, or should I say Tree-Huggers?  

       Fine, if the town wants to dead-end Shaker Road just before the Shaker Workshop, but otherwise, No Way, Jose!  This town has spent a small fortune on repairs to this road over the past several years, due to the heavy traffic and overweight trucks and NOW, the bridge has been damaged by Hurricane Irene and not yet repaired, but the town does NOTHING. Too busy over-spending on the  $500,000.00, two-car garage and the annual $135,000.00 to the Liberal Library used by less than 20% of the Town Population. Some sense of priority, huh? 

        So, the ZBA Meeting tonight will likely be presided over by the ILLEGAL Chairman that does not live here and has missed more than 25% OF THE 2012 MEETINGS. This matter too, has been 100% ignored by town officials despite two verbal complaints and two written. Guess we'll have to send THAT to county,too! I KNOW what their plan is. They intend to allow Dax to finish out the year and then not re-appoint him in January. That's not good enough. He has been in violation for months and they are derelict in their duty to remove him and to obey Town Code. These idiots forget that THEY work for US, WE are THEIR bosses!  Agreed? Good, now TELL THEM! 

         I'll add to this page tonight after the meeting. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Meeting went well, Family Dollar got their sign variance. One vote against, ( Jeannine Tonetti-Baldwin, of course).  They were concerned about "Setting a Precedent" for signs larger that the code allows, BUT, has anyone seen the BILLBOARD on the upper front of E-Z Mart?  I think the "Precedent" has already been set! LOL!  

       Mr. Illegal did indeed preside again, and as usual was condescending to the other board members who couldn't POSSIBLY be as intelligent as The Dax!  I'll tell you just HOW smart he is. The Abode made their appeal for a permitted "Boarding House" in the space formerly occupied by the Mountain Road School. They need the "income", they claimed. Well, since they pay ZERO taxes on ANY of the buildings and 300+ acres they own, have MANY residents, grow their own food and other things, sell books on Islam and other weird religions, WHY are they in financial need? The rest of us are making up for the taxes they don't pay.

       That isn't the worst of it. The building in question here has a name. It is "The FATAH Building".  Now, if you have ever paid attention to the unrest in the Middle East, that name will set off alarms in your brain, unless you're a Liberal, in which case you have a compromised brain.  So I looked these two people from the Abode right in the eyes and ASKED them what the translation of FATAH is. They told me that it meant , "To Open", as in the gates of Jerusalem. Yeah, right.

      The minute I got home, I went to work to confirm that FATAH means what I thought it meant, and it definitely DOES. So here ya go folks, SEVERAL different definitions and explanations of FATAH from several different sources. If this concerns you as a SERIOUS issue, and it SHOULD, you need to be at the Public Hearing next month for this proposed, "Boarding House".  God Help Us!

Fatah


The Movement for the National Liberation of Palestine (Fatah) was founded in the early 1960s by Yasser Arafat and friends of his in Algeria, Fatah was originally opposed to the founding of the PLO, which it viewed as a political opponent. Backed by Syria, Fatah began carrying out terrorist raids against Israeli targets in 1965, launched from JordanLebanon and Egyptian-occupied Gaza (so as not to draw reprisals against Syria). Dozens of raids were carried out each year, exclusively against civilian targets.
Fatah's popularity among Palestinians grew until it took over control of the PLO in 1968. Since then it has been the PLO's most prominent faction, under the direct control of PLO Chairman Yasser Arafat.
"Fatah" is a reverse acronym of the Arabic, Harekat at-Tahrir al-Wataniyyeh al-Falastiniyyeh. The word "Fatah" means "conquest by means  of jihad [Islamic holy war]".
Note the grenade and crossed rifles, superimposed on the map of Israel in the emblem. This emphasizes the dedication of Fatah, along with the other "liberation" groups, to the "armed struggle" against Israel, a euphemism for terrorism against civilians.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
In June 2007 civil war broke out in the Gaza Strip between two rival Palestinian factions, Hamas and Fatah. Western peace efforts in the region always focused on reconciling two opposing fronts: Israel and Palestine. Now, this careful exploration of Middle East history over the last two decades reveals that the Palestinians have long been a house divided. What began as a political rivalry between Fatah’s Yasir Arafat and Hamas leader Sheikh Ahmed Yassin during the first intifada of 1987 evolved into a full-blown battle on the streets of Gaza between the forces of Arafat’s successor, Mahmoud Abbas, and Ismael Haniyeh, one of Yassin’s early protégés. Today, the battle continues between these two diametrically opposing forces over the role of Palestinian nationalism and Islamism in the West Bank and Gaza.

In this thought-provoking book, Jonathan Schanzer questions the notion of Palestinian political unity, explaining how internal rivalries and violence have ultimately stymied American efforts to promote Middle East peace, and even the Palestinian quest for a homeland.

Palestinian rivals: Fatah & Hamas

Two parties dominate Palestinian politics: Fatah which has been at the head of the Palestinian national movement since the 1950s, and the Islamist movement, Hamas, which won the parliamentary elections in January 2006.
FATAH
Fatah demonstration, with party flags and picture of Yasser Arafat
Full name: Reverse acronym of Harakat al-Tahrir al-Filistiniya (Palestinian Liberation Movement) meaning "conquest" in Arabic.
Origins and development: Founded by Yasser Arafat in the 1950s to promote the armed struggle to liberate all Palestine from Israeli control.
It developed into the largest Palestinian political faction and, after recognising Israel's right to exist, led efforts towards a two-state solution with Israel under the 1990s Oslo peace accords.
Fatah members formed the backbone of the Oslo-inspired administration, the Palestinian Authority (PA), especially its bureaucrats and security forces.
The party lost power in the 2006 parliamentary elections to Hamas, after Fatah officials came to be perceived as corrupt and incompetent. The shift in power heralded a period of violence on the streets of Gaza.
Attitude to Israel: PA President Mahmoud Abbas advocates restarting the peace process and is a strong critic of armed "resistance" and attacks on Israeli civilians. His goal is to establish a Palestinian state in the Israeli-occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip, with East Jerusalem as capital.
The Fatah-affiliated al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades has participated, along with Hamas, in an informal militant ceasefire since 2005, but conducts what it calls retaliatory attacks against Israel.
Current status: The 2006 election defeat put Fatah on the defensive and subsequent events raised fears it would try using its political influence and military power to maintain predominance. The PA's 70,000 police and security forces are mainly Fatah loyalists.
After months of factional street fighting in which hundreds of Palestinians were killed, Fatah struck a deal with Hamas to join a unity government as a junior partner.
Palestinian Authority President and Fatah leader Mahmoud Abbas dismissed the Hamas-led government in June 2007 in the wake of some of the worst fighting that resulted in the Gaza Strip being seized by the Hamas armed forces in what the movement described as a "liberation".
A new emergency cabinet has been sworn in in the West Bank, led by Prime Minister Salam Fayyad.
HAMAS
Hamas banner
Full name: Acronym for Harakat al-Muqawama al-Islamiya (Islamic Resistance Movement) and means "zeal" in Arabic.
Origins and development: Palestinian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood, committed to establishing an Islamic state in the whole of what it terms Palestine (post-1948 Israel, the West Bank and Gaza).
Since its formation 1987 it has pursued a dual function: social welfare and what it calls armed resistance. This earned respect and gratitude among Palestinians suffering under Israeli occupation, but a string of suicide bombings against Israeli civilians meant it was designated a terrorist organisation by Israel, the US and the European Union.
Its 2006 landslide win thrust on Hamas the responsibility of power and international scrutiny for the first time, but the government was not recognised by Israel or the main international mediators.
Attitude to Israel: Hamas's charter uncompromisingly seeks Israel's destruction. However, Hamas's Ismail Haniya, the prime minister of the unity government until it was dissolved in June 2007, has spoken of a long-term truce with Israel if Israel withdraws from territory occupied in 1967.
The Hamas armed wing, the Izzedine al-Qassam brigades, has participated in an informal ceasefire since 2005, but claims the right to retaliate against what it calls Israeli attacks.
Current status: Designated a terrorist group by PA donors, outside funds to the Hamas-led Palestinian Authority dried up. Banks refused to handle emergency donations fearing US penalties.
After months of wrangling with Fatah, Hamas became the senior partner in a national unity government in March 2007.
But separately, it deployed a 3,000-strong shadow security force including its supporters to tackle lawlessness in Gaza. The move exacerbated tensions with pro-Fatah security agencies sparking a major show-down with Fatah.
Mr Haniya appears to be in charge in Gaza - Mr Abbas in the West Bank. The ousted prime minister insists his sacking is illegal - as is the Fayyad cabinet, which cannot get approval in the Hamas-dominated Palestinian parliament but which is to rule by decree.

   SO, how do you like THEM apples,huh?

  ON A LITTLE LIGHTER NOTE:

Use It Or Lose It: The First Amendment

Share this on Facebook Share this on Twitter



“The federal government is preparing for civil uprising. Every time you hear about…the militarization of the police, the buying of ammunition…they (DHS) are preparing for a massive uprising.” -Private investigator Doug Hagmann on TruNews radio in May 2012.

These are not the ramblings of a conspiracy theorist. Hagmann claims he was told of U.S. preparations for civil unrest by “high level, reliable” sources.

Americans, be aware: the Department of Homeland Security is purchasing millions of rounds of hollow point bullets, which are illegal in warfare. They are buying bulletproof checkpoint booths, riot gear, and sniper grade ammunition. And when asked about these things by people paying attention, their reasons are vague and dismissive.


Obama has subsequently destroyed our economy, pushing Americans to the brink of desperation and poverty. He has fumbled foreign policy, leaving our enemies emboldened and motivated. And he has begun nationalizing industry, giving government more and more power over our daily lives.

He made his intentions for control clear on July 02, 2008 in Colorado Springs, Colorado, when as a Presidential candidate he announced that, “We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”

One Department of Defense directive and an executive order later, the Department of Homeland Security is preparing for martial law, or, what former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates calls, “soft power.”

The Department of Homeland Security is becoming our nation’s Gestapo. With millions of rounds of ammunition, what will they do?

Already, the agency is under investigation for hundreds of instances of corruption; and the TSA, which operates under the DHS, is controlling our nation’s airports with an iron fist.

Breast milk is confiscated; toddlers are fondled; property is stolen; the elderly are forced into humiliating situations; and TSA has repeatedly harassed and arrested those who try to capture their actions on videotape.

This is the agency that will be in charge if the United States falls into chaos.

Yet, most Americans stand back and do nothing. They are silent out of fear. They don’t act because maybe they aren’t paying close attention. They aren’t connecting the dots. They cannot imagine that the government in this great country would turn against its citizens.

But, Obama has issued executive order after executive order giving the government control, especially over your Internet activities. With the push of a button, he could turn off your Internet access and your cell phone—and martial law could be declared right here in America.


Alex Jones of InfoWars has kept an eye on these developments and is calling for all Americans to stand up for their rights. His website states,

There is an organized move on behalf of governments and corporations to bully the First Amendment out of existence. The fact that our rights are being violated and characterized as suspicious and terroristic threatens the freedom of every individual, no matter from what race, gender or creed they originate.

We are being systematically intimidated out of expressing our right to free speech as part of the advancement towards a new dark age of tyranny.

Use it or lose it. The First Amendment is under attack across the board and unless we re-assert our right to speak up when our basic human dignity is being eviscerated by uniformed goons on a daily basis, not only at airports but also subways, highways, political events, music concerts and even high school prom nights, we can kiss our liberty goodbye.

Americans from coast to coast need to join together and stop this tyranny. Will you be silenced because of your beliefs? Will your firearms be taken away? Will the government prevent you from speaking out? Will the government prevent you from learning the truth? Will we look like Iran, or China? That sounds ridiculous, but think about it: those two countries were pushing the hardest for the U.N. to gain control of the Internet and wipe out our Second Amendment.

And, they are still working on it. Obama, of course, is in favor of both.



As Obama clears government agencies for firepower, he is working to take away our rights to bear arms and defend ourselves. Where are our representatives defending our rights and our Constitution?

  • The Obama administration is working with the United Nations to disarm all Americans through the Small Arms Treaty.
  • He has used his corrupt Attorney General Eric Holder and his comrades at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms (ATF) to sell arms to Mexico in an effort to force Congress to limit our Second Amendment rights.
  • Under an expansion of the civil forfeiture doctrine, Obama has just given the ATF the power to seize your firearms if they choose to, without due process, and even if you are not under investigation. Under Obama’s new decree, if the ATF says they are going to confiscate your firearms, they can.
  • The draft cybersecurity order, which would place all activities on the Internet under the jurisdiction of the DHS, included gun control language, encouraged by Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY). When that cybersecurity bill didn’t pass, Obama began drafting one of his own, which he plans to introduce by Executive Order, … will that EO contain limits on our Second Amendment right to bear arms?

The United States of America must be defended against all enemies, foreign and domestic. We the People are the first line against tyranny, and we must speak up now, before we lose our country.



Sincerely,



Tony Adkins

DO DEMOCRATS OWN THE WORD RACISM?


Do Democrats Own The Terms 'Racism

Democrats have run a number on Republicans.

They have skillfully captured certain words in the American lexicon and redefined them, applying Democrat-themed meanings for the specific purpose of cowing Republicans into silence and submission. I have watched the escalation of this vocabulary abuse for almost a decade, and I am sorry to say, this particular Democrat scheme is working.

Republicans seem afraid to speak the unvarnished truth about Democrat party leaders for fear of reprisals in the mainstream media, an organization that has repeatedly proved that it is indisputably in the tank for Barack Obama.

What are Republicans afraid to say?

Republicans seem afraid to say that Barack Obama, 44th president of the United States, seems to be a racist and a liar whose clumsy, inexperienced efforts at leadership have put our nation’s economy and our citizens’ safety in jeopardy and has proven incompetent and unfit for office.

Meanwhile, Democrats seem quite comfortable throwing labels of “racism” and “lying” about freely when they attack Republicans, comfortable in the knowledge that no Republican dare do the same. With full support and acquiescence from a compromised media that long ago lost its objectivity, charges of “racism” and “lying” have morphed into an Orwellian fog, becoming purely political terms to browbeat Republicans, allowing Democrat leaders to dodge the discussion of tough issues.

Americans have seen “racist” tendencies from Democrats who reflexively jump to the assumption that any white Republican who disagrees with Obama’s failed policies is doing so because Obama is a Black man. Meanwhile, many Democrats openly support Obama for the simple reason that he is Black. Furthermore, Obama’s surrogates are quick to circle the wagons and level accusations of “racism” should anyone point out their obvious, raced-based prejudices.

When Obama was elected president by a majority of Americans, it sure seemed that the race-baiting which went on during the 2008 campaign would finally have to be put to rest. But, in the past three years since Obama’s election, the “racist” moniker seems to be flung about with even more frequency than before the election.

In addition, too many Democrats have shown that they do not understand the definition of racismand, instead, seems to think that racism is a one-way street—that it only exists as a White against Black issue. In reality, any person who immediately assumes that a person’s actions towards them are solely based on one’s ethnic origin may be exhibiting symptoms of racism.

Still, almost anyone who criticizes Obama and the Democrats’ failed policies is labeled as a “racist”. When Black Republicans, such as me, criticize the president’s failed policies, Democrats know that the “racist” moniker won’t work, so instead, we are attacked as “traitors to our race”, or the media tries to portray us as stupid or corrupt.

But if a president’s policies are bad, if they fail to achieve their objectives (such as Cash for Clunkers, Cash for Caulkers, green energy investment initiatives, the “summer of recovery” or the Stimulus) is it really “racist” to criticize the policy or to think that the American people deserve better—even if the policy is advocated by a Black man? Is it “racist” to criticize the president because he has failed to submit a viable budget to congress for the past four years, or just incompetence on the part of the president?

The president also seems to be a liar. According to Webster, a liar is “a person who tells lies”, who deliberately “makes an untrue statement with the intent to deceive; to create a false or misleading impression.”

Isn’t that exactly what Obama has done when he says: he didn’t really know or hear the Rev. Jeremiah Wright preach anti-American sentiments, or when he writes about events that are patently untrue in his autobiography, Dreams of My Father, or when Obama deliberately tells lies about Romney and Bain Capital, or when Obama deliberately lies about the debt ceiling, or when Obama tries to claimthe attack on the U.S. embassy in Libya was not terrorism?

What about other Democrat leaders? Such as when Harry Reid claims that Mitt Romney didn’t pay his taxes? Or whenEric Holder says he knew nothing about Fast and Furious? Or when Elizabeth Warren claims she is part Native American so she can game a hiring system which is tilted in favor of quotas and minorities?

In the past three and a half years, Republicans have worn out the pages of the thesaurus looking for euphemisms for lying. Republican punditry, speeches and writings are chock full of alternatives: mislead, mischaracterize, misrepresent, untruth, misspeak, prevaricate, fabricate, story, taradiddle, fairy tale, inaccurate, falsehoods, dishonest, distortion, whopper, canard, deceit, stretching the truth.

Supposedly, according to Republican “strategists”, using the word “lie” is too direct, too brutal, too hostile and might coarsen the dialogue between political parties. Using the word “liar”, they contend, would lead to vicious attacks from the mainstream media and would cause Republicans to lose respect or votes or the moral high ground. But, I would hate to hear what these Republican pundits think is too coarse or too harsh, if they think that the attacks from Democrat leaders over the past few years have been friendly banter.

When did our country slip so far, fall so low, that we have become so handcuffed by political correctness that we are unable to call a thing by its true name? Socrates understood that watering down one’s language does not change the truth or make it more palatable, just more confusing.

Our founding fathers understood that too. Our founding fathers were some of the most courageous and least politically correct folks of their century (think Ben Franklin).

Their willingness to speak the truth as they saw it may be one of the reasons why they had the courage to attack tyranny and hypocrisy and hold up the flawed policies of a greedy and ignorant king for the world to see, and in doing so, lay the foundations for the greatest free government in the history of the world.

Republicans need to stop being cowed by rants of “racism” and they need to stop trying to find ways to soften the reality of Obama’s widespread and repeated deceptions.

Perhaps Wednesday’s debate might be a great place to start.

Eric Holder's dirty past: As college student participated in ‘armed’ takeover of former Columbia University ROTC office

Published: 11:56 PM 09/30/2012

As a freshman at Columbia University in 1970, future Attorney General Eric Holder participated in a five-day occupation of an abandoned Naval Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) headquarters with a group of black students later described by the university’s Black Students’ Organization as “armed,” The Daily Caller has learned.

Department of Justice spokeswoman Tracy Schmaler has not responded to questions from The Daily Caller about whether Holder himself was armed — and if so, with what sort of weapon.

Holder was then among the leaders of the Student Afro-American Society (SAAS), which demanded that the former ROTC office be renamed the “Malcolm X Lounge.” The change, the group insisted, was to be made “in honor of a man who recognized the importance of territory as a basis for nationhood.”


The SAAS was part of a radicalized portion of the Columbia student body whose protest roots were hardened in the late 1960s. Its members collaborated with the SDS to stage a series of protests on the New York City campus in 1968, the year before Eric Holder arrived on campus.

Those earlier protests culminated in a separate armed takeover of Dean Henry Coleman’s office in which students held him hostage and stopped the construction of a gymnasium in the Morningside Heights neighborhood, near the campus.

The BSO reportedon its website as recently as 2010 that those students were “armed with guns.”

Emboldened by their successes, SAAS leaders continued to press their demands, eventually working with local black radicals who were not college students. A young Eric Holder joined the fray in 1969 as a college freshman.

The SAAS also actively supported the Black Panthers and the Black Power movement, according to Stefan Bradley, professor of African-American studies at Saint Louis University and author of the 2009 book “Harlem vs. Columbia University.” He has described the Columbia organization as being separatist in nature.

Town Board Meeting  10-9-2012


     Wow. Where to start? Let's first celebrate the fact that I am seeing new faces at the board meetings every month. THAT, is an awesome thing. Councilman Larabee was absent tonight as he is out of town, so we had a board of four, or zero, depending on how you feel about the rest of them. Fortunately Colleen Teal and Atty. Howard were present, so intelligent life WAS represented. 

     It was VERY obvious by the number and variety of the public attendees, that the "Preliminary" budget sent out this week, is NOT popular, and that the tiny bit of popularity Benson still retained has also died a painful death. The agenda was a total nightmare and the meeting itself was THE most disorganized I have witnessed since 2009. The Great Leader REALLY needs to leave the damn agenda alone and let Colleen do it again. The Czar squirmed under the table all night long, especially when it came to the budget piece of the meeting. His math skills are a lot like mine, AWFUL. 

      He had absolutely NO CLUE what money is where or what can be used for what, etc., etc. I thought Brucey was going to have a stroke, and the Czar was so embarrassed, he was bright red from head to wiggling foot. The entire back row of the public was in stitches. Benson continued to flounder and look around for a Savior, but realizing it was futile, flopped back in his chair and gave up. Damage done.  Lack of capability noted by all. Several people actually walked out. 

      Last month, Matt Larabee made a point to request that the board NOT vote on the dissolution of the Ethics Board while he was away. So guess what they did? They voted on it anyway. It ended up in a tie vote with Chittenden and Baldwin voting to keep the local board, and Benson and Clark voting to send it to county. So what will happen next? Got ME! No one seems to know. It was left as it was with NO comment or plan. Which is how MOST of this meeting went. The first three issues were ALL tabled. Again, there was NO Communications list on the agenda, yet a letter from the Almighty Mountain Road School was read and discussed! What exactly IS it that makes them so darn SPECIAL? 

  They want,want, want, and the board bows down to their every whim. (Actually, I DO know why, but I dare not say it. Don't want to be labeled as anti-cult now, do we?). NOW, they want School Zone signs and crosswalks on County Rt. 9 North and Adam's Crossing Road! For all 15 of the students they have? GEEZ! Seems to ME, that the residents of Shaker Road and the Dean of Darrow School have been pleading for help with over-weight trucks, speeding, and excessive traffic on Shaker and Darrow Roads for MONTHS, with NO acknowledgement from the Town Board at ALL. Yet ONE letter from Mt. Road School, and it not only gets read at the meeting, but discussed at LENGTH!  A little favortism here? Ya THINK? 

     Also, NO mention of the John Dax issue. Nor did I bring it up again, I am tired of wasting my time and effort on councilmen that refuse to do their jobs. I'll take it to a higher authority and the media. The plight of the cemetery was also never mentioned, and neither was the fact that the Planning Board is still down one member and TWO letters of interest have been received by the Town Board. Bob brought that up during Privilege, when he knew for certain that the board had no intention of addressing it. Once again, the Czar seemed at a total loss as to what was going on. He whipped his head back and forth, again looking for rescue. Again, none was forthcoming.

     A board vote was also taken on banning smoking in areas of the park where kids play. LOL! So what do they plan to do, put up signs that ban smoking in certain places, AND signs that tell the kids where they can and cannot play? Idiots. At least FIVE people attempted to question or comment on the issue, and the Czar forbade them to speak!  Jeff Winestock was the ONLY one he allowed to comment, and Jeff was against the ban. Ed Godfroy was livid, as he tried to make the statement that renting the Pavilion would be a huge problem if smoking was banned there, but Benson would NOT let him speak. They voted to post the signage and ban smoking in designated park areas, with NO input from the public that was VERY eager to have their say!  Gee, THAT wasn't "tabled".

     I said absolutely nothing to the board tonight. I knew before I even got there, how it would all go. Whatever Clark and the Czar want, is what they get and the public be damned.  I no longer have the energy to argue with idiots. Talking to these people is like trying to nail jello to a tree. When the meeting adjourned, Benson was up and GONE so fast, all I saw was a shiny little blur whizz past me. LOLOL! What a useless meeting. 

     So, how many of you have SEEN a copy of the Preliminary Budget? It's a Must-See, believe me. You won't be able to wrap your heads around it. And the accountant hand-picked by the Czar, wants a 100% RAISE?  I posted the entire document below in PDF for you.  Enjoy!

 UPDATE              10-13-2012



    I promised that you would be the second to know if I heard any new info. Well, I did. The official Fraud Complaint was filed yesterday right on schedule. As required, it was filed with the proper State Agency, the Office of the State Comptroller. Fortunately, this is NOT the FIRST official complaint they have received against Benson in the past month and I have confirmation that the agency WILL be taking action, and QUICKLY for a State Agency. Two serious complaints in reference to TWO separate issues, never fails to get the attention of the OSC. 

   An investigation is pending on both counts and will likely begin before the end of this month. So stay tuned, be patient and pray for a punishment that fits the crimes. When the investigators cross the town line into Lebanon, I will let you know about it.

    For now, try to get outside and enjoy this beautiful day. It has been a wet and gloomy October so far and tomorrow promises more rain as well. Shame, because October is the best month of the entire year. The weather and scenery are the best, and we get out and finish those jobs the summer heat kept us from finishing. With all the rain we've had these past two weeks, that hasn't been possible. So grab it while you can. I'm in my painting duds already! LOL! 

    If there is any more to tell this evening, I will post it here with tonight's links. Have a great day!      JJ

About Islam.....                              10-11-2012



               I know this is Day 10 of the Anti-Obama Campaign at PACT, and if you will bear with me, I intend to post enough new info for you at the bottom of this page, to keep you busy for HOURS.  First however, I need to vent a little on one of my biggest Pet Peeves,which is a MILD way to put it.  ISLAM. 

               Despite the fact that it has become literally dangerous to speak out against this evil, demented, religious practice, I don't CARE!  I am sick to death of the way Americans tip-toe around this subject and these "people", while they silently infiltrate our country and demand religious RIGHTS. Muslims and Illegal Aliens in America, have no RIGHTS. Our Constitution was NOT written BY or FOR them. It was written for Americans, BY Americans for the sole purpose of protecting and defending those of us who are loyal to the Word of God and the Dreams of our Founding Fathers. It was NEVER intended to offer these protections and rights to those who wish to destroy our traditions, OUR mainstream religions, OUR values. 

             The attack on our Embassy in Libya was blamed on a man who made a little video that dared to speak out against Islam and Mohammed. Well, guess what? First of all, this is America and we enjoy FREEDOM OF SPEECH in this country. Anyone who is insulted by that right or the speech that it allows us to use freely, can go home to whatever backward country they came from. I will even chip-in for the plane ticket. Angela Merkel, Germany's Prime Minister, has now been joined by the P.M of Australia in telling Muslims that in NO uncertain terms, will they fail to assimilate to their new countries. Become Aussie or German, or get the H_LL OUT. Do NOT attempt to institute Sharia Law, threaten the people, pray on the sidewalks at sundown, or wear your sheet-head outfits to the workplace.

           These women are both HEROINES, as is Jan Brewer of Arizona. I would ask why America hasn't followed their examples, but it's obvious, isn't it? OUR "Leader", IS a Muslim. Obama allowed that American man to take the blame for the Libya murders for TWO WEEKS, before the FACTS came out about the event. The FACTS, that this attack was planned well in advance of any home-made video being released. It was a TERRORIST ATTACK that was well planned and executed on the anniversary of 9-11. The American government KNEW it was likely and IGNORED numerous requests from Embassy officials for HELP. The Obama Administration is responsible for the death of those innocent people, including our own Ambassador.

        They are worried about debates, and Big Bird, when Obama has committed more impeachable offenses than all the other 43 presidents,  COMBINED! Yet he remains in office.  He can claim to be a Christian till Hell freezes over, but have any of you ever met a Christian who does the things Obama has done and continues to do? Even the WORST Christians I have met, would never come close to being so evil. Obama is a Muslim, and everything he says and does is pure Islamic evil.

         Yesterday, radical Muslims in Pakistan attempted to murder a 14 year-old girl on a SCHOOL BUS, merely because she spoke out against the Islamic ban on schooling for females.  A CHILD! They shot her in the head and neck, but God spared her, and she will recover. I'm sure it will be America that offers her asylum. Yes, THAT is what we DO. We offer asylum to those, who like our founding fathers, desire freedom from persecution, from Socialistic and Communistic ideals and control. People who wish to BE Americans in America. NOT people who come to America and attempt to turn it into something and someplace, else!  I could rant and rave about Islam for days without a break, but I don't need to. I have collected the words of people much smarter than myself, and share them with you below.

This first video is AMAZING!

Dear JJ.,

Since Barack Obama took office, the federal government has increased spending on foreign aid by 80 percent. In fact, according to the U.S. Treasury, in 2011 alone Obama spent 76 percent more on foreign aid than on securing our own borders.

In light of these stunning numbers and the recent terror attacks in the Middle East, Obama wants to send hundreds of millions more of your tax dollars to the radical Muslim Brotherhood-led government controlling Egypt...

And he would have done it already had it not been for the chairwoman of the House Appropriations committee Rep. Kay Granger (R-TX), who says the Obama administration is "doubling down on it's failed Egypt policy at the expense of American taxpayers."

Granger has so far stopped Obama's plans to send an additional $450 million in aid to Egypt, "I am not convinced of the urgent need for this assistance."

But Obama isn't giving up. In fact, he is aggressively ratcheting up pressure and working through the State Department to arm twist Congress to release the additional funds -- making it more important than ever for grassroots Americans to make their voices heard.

India: Muslim Man Beheads Daughter, Parades Head Through Streets To Cleanse Family Honor…

If Democrats are looking for a real ”war on women” to condemn they can start with honor killings in the Islamic world.
JAIPUR, India (AP) — A father in northwestern India remained unrepentant Tuesday after beheading his daughter with a ceremonial sword in a rage over her relationships with men, police said.
The father surrendered at a police station, carrying the head in one hand and the bloodied sword in the other, police said.
Residents of Dungarji village expressed shock as they performed the last rites for the 20-year-old woman.
Police said the father, marble miner Oghad Singh, accused his daughter of bringing dishonor to the family and making it hard to find husbands for her two unmarried sisters.
Women wailing in grief lined the dusty road of the village in Rajasthan state as a procession carried Manju Kanwar’s remains to her funeral pyre. As in many north and west Indian villages, the women, including her mother and four sisters, were not allowed to attend the funeral.
A coroner stitched Kanwar’s head onto her body for the funeral. About 100 men, many of them relatives wearing ceremonial Rajput warrior clan turbans, surrounded her muslin-wrapped body, and her brother lit the funeral pyre.
Villagers condemned the father’s actions as extreme. They said the father, his shirt soaked in blood, had carried his daughter’s head through the village, describing what he’d done to neighbors.
“He told me that he took the sword out, and when the daughter was all alone in the house he beheaded her with a single stroke and the head fell on the ground,” said Narayan Singh, a distant relative.
“It was a ghastly sight,” officer Ranjit Singh said, describing the father sitting in the station’s waiting room holding the head in one hand and the sword in the other. “Oghad admitted immediately that he killed his daughter because she had earned a bad name for the family.”

Are Islamic Polygamous Marriages Next?


As the euphoria over homosexual marriages spread through the “gaymunity,” critics of the biologically insane relationship are predicting that polygamy will be up next on the marriage docket. Supporters of homosexual marriage blabbered on how President Obama’s decision to come out in favor of homosexual marriage put him “on the right side of history.” Here’s what Shepherd Smith of Fox news said about Obama’s “historical” announcement:
“Republicans on the wrong side of history — our country has finally hit the 21st century.”
I’m not sure what side of history Smith is talking about since there is no history of homosexual marriage in any century. In reality, support for homosexual marriage puts a person on the wrong side of history, reason, biology, and morality.
There is, however, a long history of multiple marriage — polygamy. When presidential candidate Rick Santorum compared homosexual marriage to polygamy, he was jeered. But what argument can be used against polygamy if “love” and “consent” are the operating standards for marriage in the 21stcentury? As the Cole Porter song says, “Anything Goes.”
While most Americans will most likely not pursue polygamy, Muslims will. Consider the following by David J. Rusin:
Islam sanctions polygamy — more specifically, polygamy — allowing Muslim men to keep up to four wives at once. Though marrying a second woman while remaining married to the first is prohibited across the Western world, including all 50 U.S. states, a Muslim can circumvent the law by wedding one woman in a government-recognized marriage and joining with others in unlicensed religious unions devoid of legal standing.
As Muslims have grown more numerous in the West, so too have Muslim polygamists. France, home to the largest Islamic population in Western Europe, was estimated in 2006 to host 16,000 to 20,000 polygamous families — almost all Muslim — containing 180,000 total people, including children. In the United States, such Muslims may have already reached numerical parity with their fundamentalist-Mormon counterparts; as many as 100,000 Muslims reside in multi-wife families, and the phenomenon has gained particular traction among black Muslims.
Most Muslim women do not work. How will these polygamist families with multiple children be supported? How will the children be educated? Concentrations of Muslims in specific geographical areas will overwhelm the  educational and welfare infrastructure of cities. In time, Islam will dominate, drive out competing ideologies, and change the political landscape.
================================================================

Is our current President a Christian, or is he still a practicing Muslim? Since Obama has been in office he has openly attacked the Christian faith, while publicly supporting Islam. Which is he, a Christian or a Muslim? You decide...
. Acts of hostility toward people of Biblical faith:

Many of these actions are literally unprecedented – this is the first time they have happened in four centuries of American history. The hostility of President Obama toward Biblical faith and values is without equal from any previous American president.
The evidence is in and you are the jury, what will be the verdict come Nov. 6th?...... It's all up to you!

BRAVO!
W O W ! She Did It Again!!! 

Australia says NO -- This will be the second Time Julia Gillard has done this!

She sure isn't backing down on her hard line stance and one has to appreciate her belief in the rights of her native countrymen. 


A breath of fresh air to see someone lead. Australian Prime Minister does it again!! 


The whole world needs a leader like this!


<mime-attachment.jpg>

Prime Minister Julia Gillard - Australia
 

Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law were told on Wednesday to get out of Australia, as the government targeted radicals in a bid to head off potential terror attacks. 


Separately, Gillard angered some Australian Muslims on Wednesday by saying she supported spy agencies monitoring the nation's mosques. Quote: 'IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT... Take It Or Leave It. I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali , we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians.' 


'This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom.' 


'We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society, learn the language!' 


'Most Australians believe in God. This is not some Christian, right wing, political push, but a fact, because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture.' 


'We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why. All we ask is that you accept ours, and live in harmony and peaceful  enjoyment with us.' 


'This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great Australian freedom, 'THE RIGHT TO LEAVE'.'
 

'If you aren't happy here then LEAVE. We didn't force you to come here. You asked to be here. So accept the country YOU  accepted.'

This week’s commentary from an anonymous contributor with some modifications: Looking back thru the past 4 years, many “Whens” pop up. Read them all to better understand where we are going as a country. Now may be our last chance to steer our nation’s course away from totalitarianism and the destruction of our liberties:
WHEN – he refused to disclose who donated money to his election campaign, as other candidates had done, people said it didn’t matter.
WHEN – he received endorsements from people like Louis Farrakhan, Muammar Kaddafi and Hugo Chavez, people said it didn’t matter.
WHEN – it was pointed out that he was an inexperienced newcomer with absolutely no business or military experience, or anything else except ‘community organizing’, people said it didn’t matter.
WHEN – he chose friends and acquaintances such as Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn who were revolutionary radicals, people said it didn’t matter.
WHEN – his voting record (‘present’ or pro-socialist) in the Illinois Senate and in the U.S. Senate came into question, people said it didn’t matter.
WHEN – he refused to wear the American flag lapel pin and did so only after a public outcry, people said it didn’t matter.
WHEN – some people started treating him as a messiah and children in schools were taught to sing him praises, people said it didn’t matter.
WHEN – he stood with his hands over his groin during the playing of the National Anthem and Pledge of Allegiance, people said it didn’t matter.
WHEN – he surrounded himself in the White House with advisors who were pro-gun control, pro-abortion, pro-homosexual marriage and who wanted to curtail freedom of speech to silence their opposition, people said it didn’t matter.
WHEN – he said he favors sex education in kindergarten, including homosexual indoctrination, people said it didn’t matter.
WHEN – his personal background was either scrubbed or hidden at high personal financial expense, and nothing could be found about him, people said it didn’t matter.
WHEN – the place of his birth was called into question, and he refused to produce an authentic birth certificate, people said it didn’t matter.
WHEN – he had an association in Chicago with Tony Rezko – a man of questionable character and who is now in prison and who helped Obama to a sweet deal on the purchase of his home – people said it didn’t matter.

WHEN – he appointed cabinet members and several advisers who were tax cheats and socialists, people said it didn’t matter.
WHEN – he appointed John Holdren as Science Czar, who believes in forced abortions, mass sterilizations and seizing babies from teen mothers, people said it didn’t matter (ed note: Left wing Democrats are politically responsible for the mass abortion of black babies—the very racial group they fawn over for votes!).
WHEN – he appointed Cass Sunstein as Regulatory Czar, who believes in “Explicit Consent,” harvesting human organs without family consent and allowing animals to be represented in court, while banning all hunting, people said it didn’t matter.

WHEN – as President of the United States , he returned a bust of Winston Churchill to England and later bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia, people said it didn’t matter.
WHEN – he traveled around the world apologizing for America and never once spoke of her greatness, people said it didn’t matter.
WHEN – his actions in the Middle East clearly support the Palestinians over Israel , our long-time ally and the only bastion of liberty in that region, people said it didn’t matter.
WHEN – he took American tax dollars to resettle thousands of Palestinians from Gaza to the United States , people said it didn’t matter.
WHEN – he upset the Europeans by cancelling plans for a missile defense system against the Russians, people said it didn’t matter; and later, on ‘open mike’ was heard promising Putin he would carry out his plan to disarm America after his reelection, people said it didn’t matter.
WHEN – he played politics in Afghanistan by not sending troops in early-on when Field Commanders said they were necessary to win, people said it didn’t matter.
WHEN – he started spending America into multi-trillion dollar debt, too large for us or our children to pay off, people said it didn’t matter.
WHEN – he took a huge spending bill under the guise of stimulus and fraudulently used it to pay off organizations, unions, and individuals that got him elected, people said it didn’t matter.
WHEN – he took over insurance companies, car companies, and banks while disenfranchising investor owners, people said it didn’t matter.
WHEN – he took student loans from the banks and placed them under government control, people said it didn’t matter.
WHEN – he designed plans to take over the best private health care system in the world and put it under government control, people said it didn’t matter.
WHEN – he claimed he was a Christian during the election and tapes were later made public which showed Obama speaking to Muslim groups ‘stating’ that he was raised as a Muslim, was educated as a Muslim, and is still a Muslim, people said it didn’t matter.
WHEN – he set into motion a plan to take over the control of all energy production and use in the United States through Cap and Trade, people said it didn’t matter.
WHEN – he finally completed his transformation of America into a Socialist State, sleeping people woke up— but it was too late.
All of the above points, and many more, affirm the fact that Barrack Hussein Obama is determined to turn America into a Marxist-Socialist society, destroying the meaning of our founding documents under which our nation has prospered for more than 200 years.
All of the items in the preceding list have been put into place. All are documented. The last paragraph alone is not yet cast in stone. You and I will write that paragraph. Will it read as above or will we change direction on November 6th?
Pray for Americans to recognize reality and the truth, and vote to keep us FREE.
Our biggest enemy is not China, Russia, North Korea or Iran.
Our biggest enemy is within our borders—a contingent of misguided or treasonous politicians in Washington , DC . At this point, the current government will not help us, so we need to do it ourselves.

    OH YES, LEST I FORGET, OBAMA ATTENDED THE WEDDING OF THE MODERATOR OF TOMORROW NIGHT'S DEBATE BETWEEN BIDEN AND RYAN! HERE'S THE SCOOP:   


http://dailycaller.com/2012/10/10/abc-news-scrambles-to-cover-up-barack-obamas-attendance-at-vp-debate-moderators-wedding/


              VOTING FOR OBAMA IS TREASON !!!!


=================================================================================



 BENSON BREAKS LAW !!!                             10-11-2012


     Well, Mike Benson has REALLY done it THIS time! This may be the undoing of the Great Czar that we have been waiting and praying for.  My sympathy to his supporters.

          As of 2012, "NEW HIRES" by the town are now required to pay for 20% of their town healthcare policies. NEW HIRES, meaning that anyone hired prior to 2012 was exempt. Yet the Czar decided that a court employee that was first hired by the town in 2010, should pay the 20% anyway! Not only that, but he wanted it to be retroactive to January of 2012, meaning that this employee owed the town $2000.00 in Benson's "opinion".

           Rather than take this matter to the employee, Benson took it to her superior, via EMAIL of course, as he is incapable of speaking with other humans face to face and never looks ANYONE in the eye. Benson also failed to discuss the matter with the board as is his usual modus operandi, nor did he consider that what he was proposing was ILLEGAL. (Municipal Law Section 93). He was advised by an educated attorney that it was in fact, illegal, but he did it anyway. The employee received her check and it was short by $300.00! Had her superior,( who was told by Benson to NOT tell the employee his plans), NOT informed her in advance that this was suggested, this employee would have had NO idea as to where her money went! 

          The Town Attorney, Andy Howard was contacted earlier today and he in turn contacted Doug Clark and instructed him to IMMEDIATELY cut a check to the employee for the illegally removed money and to hand-deliver it to her! This was done, but the issue is far from over. The employee as well as MOST of the town employees, has had enough of Benson's UNILATERAL , tyrannical, and dictatorial behaviors and is pressing formal charges of Fraud against Benson tomorrow. 

           Mike Benson was contacted by ME this afternoon and asked if he cared to comment before I posted this news. It is now 11:21 p.m and I have received no response from Benson. I guess he had no defense.  He has been a very busy boy, our Supervisor. He also attempted to force court officials to apply for a court grant and give the money to HIM to pay for the handicapped bathrooms in the new town hall addition. It seems he has run out of money to finish the project and is cutting the throats of town employees and departments to find what he needs. 

         It might have been easier and far more honorable to simply admit that what we all KNEW would come to fruition, HAS. They have exceeded their promise of $500,000.00 and do NOT want the public to know! Is anyone surprised? The court official refused to apply for the grant for Benson's use, and instead, applied for the grant to provide vital security for the court, such as video and audio taping equipment and bullet-proof shielding which is now required by law. It is tacitly understood, that the illegal actions he took against the court employee, and the severe cuts he proposes for the court funding for 2013, are in retaliation for the refusal of the court official to "Play Ball".

      Court employees are not the only targets of Benson's desperation to hide his huge mistakes. Salary cuts are being proposed for numerous others who do not wish to be named at this time. Some of these cuts will add up to $5000.00 or more annually per employee. Sadly for Benson, the law is NOT on his side, at least when it comes to ELECTED officials. Salaries of the elected can be reduced by REFERENDUM ONLY! Even if that were not the case, Benson would still not be allowed to take ANY of these actions without board knowledge and input. 

       I DO believe folks, that Mike Benson's reign as Supervisor of the Town of New Lebanon is drawing to a close. If I were to take the time to go back to the campaign and search through my records from then until NOW, I could cite at LEAST TEN incidents of violations of laws by Benson and Clark. In  LESS than ONE year! Makes Obama look like a pre-schooler!  It is time people, time to stop the corruption and the lies and the dictatorship.  It is time to demand the resignation of Benson and Clark both. Time for a Special Election in New Lebanon. 

       With this latest violation as well as the Ethics Complaints pending with the county, keeping either of them in office would be ludicrous and irresponsible. 

       Here is something else you may find of interest: The NYS Office of Court Administration has Architects and Planners that will come to the town and advise on the requirements and needs of a good, workable court space, for FREE. So why are we stuck with a highly inadequate, $500,000.00+ court space? Well, think about it. Would a Dictator ask for the opinion of others? If he HAD, imagine the time and money that could have been saved? The hassle that will now be caused to the court, and to the public who will have to wait in their cars in the too-small parking lot, because they will not all FIT into the courtroom at one time. All this, could have been avoided for FREE if the Czar was not suffering from a God Complex.

         Now it remains to be seen, if the Gibson Camp will step-in and save Benson from the handcuffs. My guess is that they will. I hate to say, "I told you so,Chris", but I DID. Almost a YEAR ago. With Chris Gibson's brother working for D.A Czajka, and D.A Czajka's son working for Chris Gibson, how far do you think the charges against Benson will go?  It will certainly be interesting to watch.  I am quite certain that Fraud is not the only charge that can be filed against Benson, but also Misappropriation of Funds. The plot sickens.

=============================================================================

The Debate

       In my own opinion, I think both candidates did fairly well. I did pick up several blatant lies by Biden and I found him to be EXTREMELY rude and immature. Typical, Liberal lack of class. I also take issue with Biden supporting Pro-Choice out of one side of his mouth and calling himself a life-long, practicing Catholic out of the other. OxyMoron #599. He also lied about not forcing Catholic institutions to provide Birth-Control, among several OTHER things. 

       Obama and his cronies have deliberately and systematically weakened our military and our reputation for strength, obliterated what morality and pride we had left, and incited the worst racial tensions since the 1960s. All by design. So it was hard to listen to Biden. Two down, two to go.

This Reporter has (((NAILED IT))) This should go VIRAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This Reporter has (((NAILED IT))) This should go VIRAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

BEST SUMMATION OF BARACK AND MICHELLE EVER!
Mychal Massie is a respected writer and talk show host in Los Angeles.
The other evening on my twitter, a person asked me why I didn't like the Obama's? Specifically I was asked: "I have to ask, why do you hate the Obama's? It seems personal, not policy related. You even dissed (disrespect) their Christmas family picture."

The truth is I do not like the Obamas, what they represent, their ideology, and I certainly do not like his policies and legislation. I've made no secret of my contempt for the Obamas. As I responded to the person who asked me the aforementioned question, I don't like them because they are committed to the fundamental change of my/our country into what can only be regarded as a Communist state.

I don't hate them per definition, but I condemn them because they are the worst kind of racialists, they are elitist Leninists with contempt for traditional America. They display disrespect for the sanctity of the office he holds, and for those who are willing to admit same, Michelle Obama's raw contempt for white America is transpicuous.
I don't like them because they comport themselves as emperor and empress. 

I expect, no I demand respect, for the Office of President and a love of our country and her citizenry from the leader entrusted with the governance of same. President and Mrs. Reagan displayed an unparalleled love for the country and her people. 

The Reagan's made Americans feel good about themselves and about what we could accomplish. Obama's arrogance by appointing 32 leftist czars and constantly bypassing congress is impeachable. Eric Holder is probably the MOST incompetent and arrogant DOJ head to ever hold the job. Could you envision President Reagan instructing his Justice Department to act like jack-booted thugs?

Presidents are politicians and all politicians are known and pretty much expected to manipulate the truth, if not outright lie, but even using that low standard, the Obama's have taken lies, dishonesty, deceit, mendacity, subterfuge and obfuscation to new depths. They are verbally abusive to the citizenry, and they display an animus for civility.

I do not like them, because they both display bigotry overtly, as in the case of Harvard Professor Louis Gates, when he accused the Cambridge Police of acting stupidly, and her code speak pursuant to not being able to be proud of America. I view that statement and that mindset as an insult to those who died to provide a country where a Kenyan, his illegal alien relatives, and his alleged progeny, could come and not only live freely, but rise to the highest, most powerful, position in the world. 

Michelle Obama is free to hate and disparage whites because Americans of every description paid with their blood to ensure her right to do same.
I have a saying, that "the only reason a person hides things, is because they have something to hide." No president in history has spent millions of dollars to keep his records and his past sealed.

And what the two of them have shared has been proved to be lies. He lied about when and how they met, he lied about his mother's death and problems with insurance, Michelle lied to a crowd pursuant to nearly $500,000 bank stocks they inherited from his family. He has lied about his father's military service, about the civil rights movement, ad nausea. He lied to the world about the Supreme Court in a State of the Union address. He berated and publicly insulted a sitting Congressman. He has surrounded himself with the most rabidly, radical, socialist academicians today. 

He opposed rulings that protected women and children that even Planned Parenthood did not seek to support. He is openly hostile to business and aggressively hostile to Israel. His wife treats being the First Lady as her personal American Express Black Card (arguably the most prestigious credit card in the world). I condemn them because, as people are suffering, losing their homes, their jobs, their retirements, he and his family are arrogantly showing off their life of entitlement - as he goes about creating and fomenting class warfare.

I don't like them, and I neither apologize nor retreat from my public condemnation of them and of his policies. We should condemn them for the disrespect they show our people, for his willful and unconstitutional actions pursuant to obeying the Constitutional parameters he is bound by, and his willful disregard for Congressional authority.

Dislike for them has nothing to do with the color of their skin; it has everything to do with their behavior, attitudes, and policies. And I have open scorn for their constantly playing the race card.

It is my intention to do all within my ability to ensure their reign is one term. I could go on, but let me conclude with this. I condemn in the strongest possible terms the media for refusing to investigate them, as they did President Bush and President Clinton, and for refusing to label them for what they truly are. There is no scenario known to man, whereby a white president and his wife could ignore laws, flaunt their position, and lord over the people, as these two are permitted out of fear for their color.

As I wrote in a syndicated column titled, "Nero In The White House" - "Never in my life, inside or outside of politics, have I witnessed such dishonesty in a political leader. He is the most mendacious political figure I have ever witnessed. Even by the low standards of his presidential predecessors, his narcissistic, contumacious arrogance is unequalled. Using Obama as the bar, Nero would have to be elevated to sainthood... 

Many in America wanted to be proud when the first person of color was elected president, but instead, they have been witness to a congenital liar, a woman who has been ashamed of America her entire life, failed policies, intimidation, and a commonality hitherto not witnessed in political leaders. He and his wife view their life at our expense as an entitlement - while America's people go homeless, hungry and unemployed."

During a recent Romney campaign stop, a heckler from the audience hollered,
"Hey Mitt Witt, where are you hiding your tax returns?"
Governor Romney politely responded:
"I've found a very secure place that I'm certain they won't be found."
The insistent heckler, then shouted: "And just where is that, dummy"?
Governor Romney smiled and said:
"They are underneath Obama's college records, his passport application, his immigration status as a student,
his funding sources to pay for college, his college records, and his Selective Service registration.
What's your next question?"

 Ya Can't Please Everybody!           10-12-2012


          Seems the old saying, "You're damned if ya do and you're damned if ya don't", is true. So I would like to begin tonight by speaking  to those who feel betrayed by my willingness to listen to the problems of ALL Lebanon residents who ask for assistance and not just those I have personal alliances with. I have made it clear on many occasions, that I will help anyone who asks for it, regardless of their party affiliation , past interactions, etc. If you have a legitimate complaint and have been abused by officials in any manner, I will assist you for free, no strings, and no bias. 

         However, If you yank my chain and attempt to lie to me, mis-lead me, set me up, or use me to get even with an enemy, you will regret it. I believe in CYA measures and I USE them. I do not and WILL NOT, discriminate when it comes to someone who needs my help, period. If it is within my power and ability to help, I will, and if it is not, I will do everything possible to find someone who CAN. It does not matter one bit if I disagree with your beliefs or politics, or if I have had disagreements with you in the past or if my friends have had disagreements with you in the past. NONE of that is relevant when it comes to doing the RIGHT THING. If you have a legitimate issue and I can help, I will, period. 

      Now, that being said, NO, I do not yet know the outcome of the charges against Mike Benson . Was the complaint filed today as planned ? I am waiting for the confirmation, same as you. The moment I am told, I will let everyone know. If there is anything I have learned since starting PACT, it is PATIENCE. There is no such thing as ANY government agency at ANY level, that works as quickly as we would like them to. We spend a LOT of time, biding our time!  LOL!  You will all be the second to know! 

      I spoke with another resident today that also plans to press some charges against Benson, and I suggested that he do it NOW and let the complaints all hit the fan at once. It would be nice to have a Special Election in January,wouldn't it? I can't think of a better way to start the new year! Who knows, we may get lucky and Benson and Clark will do the honorable thing and tender their resignations and save us and themselves the grief of having to ask for them. Yeah, Fat Chance.

Fact Check: Top Ten Worst Lies by Joe Biden in VP Debate


12 Oct 2012, 5:28 AM 

Once again, Joe Biden lied his way through a Vice Presidential debate--just as he did in his contest with Sarah Palin in 2008. This time, the media caught a few of Biden's worst "malarkey" moments--as did his opponent, Paul Ryan, when he could get a word in edgewise.

Here are the top ten worst lies told by Biden during the debate:

Update - Honorable Mention: "There's not one Democrat who endorsed his...plan." Biden lied--as Ryan pointed out, amidst the Vice President's interruptions--about the fact that Ryan had worked with both Democratic Sen. Ron Wyden of Oregon and former Clinton budget director Alice Rivlin in developing his entitlement reforms. While it's true that neither have endorsed the Romney-Ryan ticket's separate plan--which is different--Ryan's own plans, to which Biden referred, were endorsed by Democrats, and Biden knows it.

10. "With all due respect, that’s a bunch of malarkey....not a single thing he said is accurate." At the outset of the debate, Biden tried to paint Ryan as a liar--when Biden, in fact, was the one lying. Ryan had pointed out: 1) that the White House had distanced itself from the Cairo embassy's apologies on 9/11; 2) that Obama had failed to speak up for Iranian protestors in 2009; 3) that the Obama administration called Syria's dictator a "reformer"; 4) and that the Obama administration is imposing defense cuts and projecting weakness. All of that is true.

9. "The president has met with Bibi [Netanyahu] a dozen times....This is a bunch of stuff." While they have met several times--not a dozen--that includes a meeting at which Obama made the Israeli prime minister enter the White House through a back entrance, refused to take a picture with him, and left him on his own for dinner. Specifically, Ryan had criticized Obama's refusal to meet Netanyahu in New York last month, and to tape talk show interviews instead--a clear snub that sent the wrong signal, again, to Israel's enemies.

8. "Just let the taxes expire like they’re supposed to on those millionaires." Biden's "millionaires" are actually households earning more than $250,000 a year, which includes many middle-class families with two earners, and small business owners in particular who report business earnings as personal income. Biden and Obama have repeatedly labeled those earning over $250,000 as "millionaires and billionaires," distorting the actual impact of their tax plan on the non-millionaires it would hit hardest, who create a vast proportion of small business jobs.

7. "You know, I heard that death panel argument from Sarah Palin. It seems that every vice presidential debate, I hear this kind of stuff about panels." Biden's cheap shot against Palin was an attempt to diminish both her and the man sitting across from him. But Palin never talked about "death panels" in her debate with Biden, for the simple reason that Obamacare had not yet been proposed. Nor did Ryan mention "death panels"--he had addressed the undeniable fact that Obamacare proposes a board to impose cost controls.

6. "The congressman here cut embassy security in his budget by $300 million below what we asked for." Biden's lie about Ryan's budget was an attempt to dodge responsibility for lax embassy security--and to cover up that the Obama administration called for new cuts to embassy security just days after the 9/11 attacks. Ryan's proposal, which called for a 19% overall decrease in non-defense discretionary spending, does not even mention embassy security--the Obama campaign merely made up that number by applying 19% across the board.

5. "No, they are not four years closer to a nuclear weapon." Biden's attempt to lie about the glaring reality of the Iranian nuclear program fell flat. Iran is indeed four years closer to a nuclear weapon, and the Obama administration--believing it knew better than its predecessors--tried to reinvent the wheel on talks with Iran, causing frustration to our allies in Europe and the Middle East. Meeting after meeting this year has failed to produce results, and the loophole-filled sanctions, while hurting Iran somewhat, are not stopping its nuclear program.

4. "No religious institution, Catholic or otherwise...has to be a vehicle to get contraception in any insurance policy they provide. That is a fact." No, it is not a fact--it is the opposite of a fact, and saying "that is a fact" does not make it any less a blatant lie. The Obama administration is forcing religious institutions to provide contraceptive and abortion drugs through their insurance policies. That is the reason several dozen religious institutions are suing the administration to defend their First Amendment freedom of religion.

3. "It came from this man voting to put two wars on a credit card...I was there. I voted against him." Biden voted for both the Iraq war and the Afghanistan war. He did not vote for George W. Bush's plan to extend coverage of Medicare to prescription drugs (though he voted for an earlier, similar proposal), nor did he vote for the Bush tax cuts. But he voted for both of the wars he derided last night. To quote Bill Clinton's speech to the Democratic National Convention: "It takes some brass to attack a guy for doing what you did."

2. "What we did is we saved $716 billion and put it back -- applied it to Medicare." Biden repeated the lie the Obama administration has been telling since before Obamacare passed in 2010: that cuts to Medicare today were savings that extend the life of the program. They would be--if the same $716 billion wasn't also being used to pay for Obamacare. As Ryan pointed out in 2010, and again last night, you can't double-count the same cuts. Taking $716 billion out of Medicare means exactly that--and hurts, not helps, the program's solvency.

1. "Well, we weren’t told they wanted more security again." Biden lied through his teeth about the fact that the administration--specifically, the State Department--had been told again and again that security on the ground in Libya, and in Benghazi in particular, was inadequate. The day before, in Congressional hearings on the Libya attacks, former regional security director Eric Nordstrom described his frustration with having those requests turned down by the government bureaucracy: "For me the Taliban is on the inside of the building."

Perchance to Dream                             10-14-2012


         Everybody dreams. Some folks say they don't, but they do, they just don't remember the dreams when they wake up. I'm one of those people that has vivid dreams, the kind that can be so nice that you don't want to wake up, and some that are so BAD, they stick with you all day long. Most dreams don't make a whole lot of sense, but there are a few that are obvious reflections of your life events, your concerns, or even what TV show you saw before going to bed.

          Then there are awake-dreams. The things we hope for, strive toward and stand in support of. Martin Luther King Jr. had such a dream for Americans to join hands of every size,shape and color and live as one people. I wonder sometimes, if had he lived, would we be seeing the surge in racism that we see today? King was not perfect, and he said some things that still ruffle my feathers, but he WAS a Godly man and his purpose was honorable.  I think he could have made a difference. 

          A month ago, I posted about the possible aftermath of this year's election. In that post, I suggested that we all be prepared for racial uprisings if Obama should lose and militia-style actions if he wins. These are very real considerations, and though I don't want or intend to frighten anyone or over-state the possibilities, I DO think we need to take steps to be prepared in a Common-Sense manner. Go back to this post of 8-23-2012, and look at the preparations I mentioned. No foxholes or bomb-shelters, just some basics.

        In the past week, I have been reading a LOT of warnings about this very issue. Twitter is teeming with threats from inner-city blacks to riot if Obama loses. Latinos and Mexicans are joining those ranks. Why? Well, for some it is the race thing, but it is also about the entitlements, the hand-outs, the Obama Phones, the Amnesty, and all the other undeserved freebies these people get and the rest of us pay for. They are afraid that they MIGHT have to get a job and take care of themselves! 

        Our forefathers had dreams too. They dreamed of a country where all men would always be free. They dreamed of industry and growth, strength and pride, and self-responsibility. America was founded on those dreams and the Constitution was penned to protect those dreams. What we see today after 4 years of the Obama administration is a world away from  the forefathers dreams , it is instead,  a nightmare. Our country is facing the worst Racism it has seen in many decades. More people are homeless today than they were in the Great Depression. Middle-Class families are hungry. The poor receive  assistance, (even those who are perfectly capable of working but just won't), but still, many of them are hurting . 

      The Middle-Class on the other hand, often makes too much money to be eligible for help, but not enough to meet the cost of living. These are the people who are drowning today.   They are also the very people that keep the wheels of America turning day by day. Another Obama term and there will BE no Middle-Class, only the rich and the poor. Four more years of Obama and we will have lost our religious freedoms, our right to free speech, our guns, our homes, our strength and our safety. God will not bless a country that abandons Israel as the Obama Administration has. Nor will he bless a people that sit back and allow this evil to win. If we want God to help us, to save us from Socialism, One World Order and Religion, and total government control, then it is up to us to do the Right and Godly things. 

      If you dream of honorable,patriotic leadership, and of an America that your children can love and be proud of, you know what you have to do. I had a conversation with an old friend today, and he told me about a relative of his that is a veteran of Vietnam. This veteran is planning to vote for Obama! My friend is furious and more than a little confused. I empathize. How can any patriotic American,OLDER American, or a VETERAN, even consider such a foolhardy and destructive choice? Apparently, he has no honorable dreams for his own future or those of the next generations. 

       So what is YOUR dream for America, for your kids and grandkids? Free Health-care  that will NOT be free, or adequate? More government debt and dependency on other, unstable countries? The obliteration of our allies in Israel? An unarmed citizenry that is completely at the mercy of a totalitarian government ? Military-Trained Police Forces that can and will enter your home at any time for any reason with no warrant or  probable cause? Do you dream of a country where calling someone by a racial or religious slur can result in your arrest and confinement?  Where there is NO place for God, but the Muslims will be allowed to worship Allah freely? Schools that will be no more than indoctrination camps? 

       These are not MY dreams, and I don't think they are YOURS,either. They ARE, Obama's Dreams. They ARE the dreams of the Illuminati and the evil men that meet around their table. No Conspiracy Theory here folks, just reality. Scary, but true just the same. The Boy Scouts of America have a motto; "Always be Prepared". Never has that motto been more significant than it is today. I do not believe in panic or extreme measures, but I do believe in and strongly support, Preparation. Read the articles, fact-check them, visit the links and watch the videos. If Obama wins, you will need to be prepared for great change, just as he promised. Problem is, it won't be the change you dreamed about.

Michael Snyder
The Economic Collapse
Oct 12, 2012
Will the most divisive campaign in modern American history culminate in massive riots in our major cities? Right now, supporters of Barack Obama and supporters of Mitt Romney are both pinning all of their hopes on a victory on November 6th. The race for the presidency is extremely tight, and obviously the side that loses is going to be extremely disappointed when the election results are finalized. But could this actually lead to violence? Could we actually see rioting in communities all over America? Well, the conditions are certainly ripe for it.
A whole host of surveys over the past few years have shown that Americans are very angry and very frustrated right now. In fact, a Pew Research Center poll from late last year found that 86 percent of all Americans are either angry or frustrated with the federal government. We have seen this frustration manifest in protest movements such as the Tea Party and Occupy Wall Street, but right now things are fairly calm as liberals and conservatives both look forward to November 6th. Many Republicans started the countdown to the next election literally the day after John McCain lost back in 2008.
All of their hopes of getting Obama out of the White House are riding on a Romney victory. For many Democrats, Barack Obama is a “once in a generation” icon. Just the thought of Mitt Romney replacing Obama in the White House is enough to push many of them to the brink of insanity. In recent years we have seen horrible rioting erupt in cities after major sports championship games. How much worse could the rioting potentially be if this bitterly contested election is decided by a very narrow margin – especially if there are allegations that the election is “stolen”?
The election is nearly four weeks away, and many Obama supporters are already threatening to riot if Obama loses. The following are some very disturbing messages that were posted on Twitter recently that have been reposted on Twitchy.com….
“If Romney wins I’m Starting a Riot….Who’s WIT ME???”
“I Hope The USA Is Well Aware That If In The Event This Character Romney Wins The Election, The People Will Start A Country Wide Riot! #Power”
“If Romney is elected president, its gon be a riot its gon be a riot.”
“If ROMNEY GETS IN THE WHITE HOUSE …U MIGHT AS WELL KILL ME NOW …..CAUSE ITS GONNA BE A ************ RIOT !!!”
“If Romney became President and took away welfare Downtown Cincinnati would become a riot”
“If Romney takes away food stamps 2 Chainzz in this bit IMMA START A RIOT”
“If Romney wins. (which i highly doubt) THERE WILL BE A RIOT—”
The following are a few more tweets that I found which threaten a potential riot if Obama loses the election….
From @joecools_world….
“Need 2 come up wit a game plan if Romney win…. Riot all thru Newark”
From @killacate….
“I swear on everything I love if Romney wins ima riot. I don’t even care if its just me.”
Romney supporters are not really threatening to riot, but many of them are proclaiming that they may leave the country if Obama wins. Here are some examples….
“If Obama gets reelected I may leave the country”
From @AbbieFickes….
“im sorry but if obama were to win again, i might as well leave the country and live in zimbabwe”
This presidential campaign has been getting increasingly heated, and individuals on both sides have been committing some despicable acts.
For example, in a previous article I mentioned that some Romney campaign signs down in Virgina have been smeared with excrement.
Over in Ohio, a huge pile of manure was dumped right in front of Warren County Democratic headquarters early on Tuesday morning….
Volunteers at the Warren County Democratic headquarters, just north of Cincinnati, were shocked and disappointed by a political prank unloaded on them early Tuesday morning – someone dumped a pile of horse manure in the parking lot of the headquarters building on US 42, just north of Lebanon.
It appears that both sides have resorted to literally slinging crap around.
There is so much hate in America today, and this campaign is bringing a lot of it to the surface. It is even being reported that a bus driver told a 12-year-old boy that he should have been aborted because his family has a Romney campaign sign in their yard….
Belling read a letter from the 12-year-old boy’s mother, detailing the alleged abusive behavior by the bus driver.
Apparently, the Romney-Ryan yard sign bugs the bus driver and she’s been harassing the boy, making rude comments to him related to politics.
When the driver engaged the 12-year-old boy in a political conservation, he responded by saying that Obama is pro-abortion.
The bus driver allegedly said to the child, “Maybe your mom should have chosen abortion for you.”
How sick is that?
You can strongly disagree with someone without being mean and without being hateful.
Right now, the United States is a bubbling cauldron of frustration and anger that could be set off at any moment. This election could potentially be a “trigger point” which could end up unleashing a lot of that anger and frustration.
Already, there have been allegations that the Republicans have been committing voter registration fraud. Democrats are furious about this.
Evidence has also emerged that Democrats have been willing to assist voters in registering to vote in two different states. The following is from a recent article by Mac Slavo….
When undercover reporters visited various locations across the country they received the same response from Obama campaign staffers – that it’s basically okay to vote multiple times if you happen to be registered in two or more states.
In Houston, Texas, for example, the Project Veritas reporter made her intentions known, and rather than being rebuffed for her planned illegal activity, she was provided assistance with obtaining the proper forms to be registered in two states and was told to say “I don’t know” if the double-voting ever became an issue.
Similar situations unfolded at other DNC funded community organizations.
It appears quite probable that whichever side loses this election will accuse the other side of stealing the election.
And if millions of Americans feel that the election has been stolen from them, that will make it much more likely that we will see rioting.
Keep your ears open for phrases such as “voter fraud” and “election fraud” following this election. People are so angry already that even allegations that someone stole the election could be enough to set the streets of America on fire.
As always, let us hope for the best, but let us also prepare for the worst.

OCTOBER SURPRISE? OBAMA SECRET IRAN DEAL CUT

Look for announcement of temporary halt to uranium enrichment

Published: 10/04/2012 at 3:52 PM
author-imageby REZA KAHLILI Email | Archive
Reza Kahlili served in CIA Directorate of Operations, as a spy in the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, counterterrorism expert; currently serves on the Task Force on National and Homeland Security, an advisory board authorized by Congress. He is the author of the award winning book "A Time to Betray" and regularly appears in national and international media as an expert on Iran and counterterrorism in the Middle East.

Iran could announce a temporary halt to uranium enrichment before next month’s U.S. election in a move to save Barack Obama’s presidency, a source affiliated with high Iranian officials said today.
The source, who remains anonymous for security reasons, said a three-person delegation of the Obama administration led by a woman engaged in secret negotiations with a representative of Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
The delegation urged the Iranian leader to announce a halt to enrichment, even if temporary, before the Nov. 6 election, promising removal of some sanctions.
The source said the delegation warned that a Mitt Romney presidency would change the U.S. relationship with Iran regarding its nuclear program.
The U.S. representatives reminded the Iranians that President Obama has stood in front of Israel, preventing the Jewish state from attacking Iran over its illicit nuclear arms policy.
The Oct. 1 meeting, which took place in Doha, Qatar, was coordinated by the Qatar monarchy, whose members attended at the request of the Obama administration.
Ali Akbar Velayati, the former Iranian foreign minister and current close adviser to the supreme leader on international affairs, secretly traveled to Qatar for the meeting. Velayati is wanted by Argentina for the Jewish community center bombing in Buenos Aires in 1994 that killed 85 people.
One Obama representative, the woman, who had met Velayati before, urged Velayati to announce a halt, even if it is only for a week or two, to uranium enrichment prior to the U.S. election, according to the source. The U.S. representatives promised the Obama administration quickly would remove some sanctions on the Iranian central bank and oil industry, with further collaboration after the election, the source said.
According to the source, the woman is trusted by the Iranians, having met with Velayati more than 10 times over the past 20 years. The woman took Lufthansa Flight 419 out of Washington to Frankfurt, then to Doha, Qatar, from there.
The secret meeting took place even as hundreds of merchants in Tehran marched on parliament to protest the collapsing Iranian currency and the Islamic regime’s financial support for the besieged Syrian government of Bashar al-Assad.
Riot police violently clamped down on black-market money changers while merchants in the sprawling bazaar closed their shops during the protest. With inflation soaring, Iranian merchants can’t sell their goods, for fear they won’t be able to restock their shelves.
The negotiation was an extension of secret negotiations begun in early January when, according to Iranian officials and a report by Fars News Agency, Obama requested collaboration with the Islamic regime through three different channels. The channels were a letter to the supreme leader, a message to the Iranian U.N. delegate and a direct message through Swiss Ambassador Livia Leu Agosti in Tehran in a meeting with Iranian Foreign Ministry officials, who quoted a message from Obama.
The Obama message said: “I didn’t want to impose sanctions on your central bank, but I had no options but to approve it since a Congress majority had approved the decision.”
A unanimous U.S. Senate vote had approved strong sanctions against the Iranian central bank and oil industry, but with a veto threat by the president, the effective date of the implementation of the sanctions was delayed to July 1.
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said recently in Kazakhstan that the sanctions can be lifted immediately if the regime meets its nuclear obligations. She blamed its leaders for the financial crisis and spreading protests and said U.S. policy only seeks to convince the regime to seriously negotiate over its uranium enrichment program.
The Islamic leaders face increasing challenges with the Iranian people, a majority of whom resent the regime and are once again gathering energy to confront it with the hope of achieving regime change and freedom and democracy.
Fox News has reported that Iranian authorities dispatched riot police to key locations in Tehran just within the last 24 hours because of the turmoil over the plunging value of the nation’s currency. Many shop owners were closed the day before, and trash bins were burned as citizens and security forces clashed. More than a dozen were “detained.”
In 2009, when Iranians came out by the millions demanding change and urging Obama to support them, the administration instead negotiated with the regime in the hope of reaching a solution over Iran’s nuclear program. Though the Islamic leaders promised to collaborate with the president once the masses were fully suppressed, the Iranian leaders announced that not only was the offer no longer acceptable but they had further progressed with their nuclear program by reaching a milestone of enriching uranium to the 20-percent level.
The Aug. 30 IAEA report showed Iran has doubled the number of centrifuges at its Fordow facility deep within a mountain to more than 2,000, and work continues unabated at the 20-percent enrichment level. Meanwhile, more than 10,000 centrifuges at the Natanz facility are enriching to the 3.5-percent level, with enough low-enriched uranium for six nuclear bombs should Iran decide to enrich further.

Budgets and B.O                           10-15-2012


          First budget meeting was held tonight. I did not attend, but Bob did. It went fairly long, 7 to 10, and I'm told they are about half-way through the job.  LOTS of cuts! The Councilmen took pay cuts and I'm sure the Czar will make a huge deal about that. I see it as something that is long overdue. Serving your town,community or country as an official should be a volunteer position. A minimum stipend maybe, but not significant payments. Especially in the case of our recent council-people. 

          99% of them run for these positions out of a need for a title and a little power, not out of compassion or a sense of duty. Look at their records; they ignore the complaints and requests of the people, are abusive, dishonest, and mishandle our tax dollars. THEY should pay US! Speaking of our tax dollars, the subject of the Library grant was brought up tonight and Mr. Councilman/Library Board Member, Dougy Clark, froze it in its tracks with a flat, terse,"NO!".  So, to those of you who are concerned about WHY the library needs $136,000.00 a year from our coffers, I believe it is time to address the issue with Mr. Clark and the rest of the Left-Wing Library Board. NOW is the time, while the budget is being discussed and voting is coming up quickly. 

      Do NOT let them tell you that the amount cannot be reduced, it CAN be! It is up to the Library Board to agree to a referendum vote to decrease the grant, and decrease it we SHOULD! Significantly! By at least TWO-THIRDS of what it now is. Why should everyone else have to tighten their belts, take pay and hour cuts, while the ELITE library enjoys such a huge grant for the "FEW" who use it?!?!? I don't know about you folks, but I want an itemized list of exactly WHERE all that money goes each year!  I think the taxpayers deserve an accounting of how their money is spent, don't you? So what are you waiting for? Get your pens out and demand that the Library Board and Councilman Clark provide a public document accounting for every dime of that $136,000.00. Clark serving on both boards smacks of Conflict anyway! 

     Bob said that Benson was quite calm and fairly sensible tonight. I couldn't say, I was not there, but I DO know the way he thinks. He blew the supermarket promise, and the town hall addition, as well as his "Shovel-Ready" platform, so he needs SOMETHING to brag about when he runs for a higher office. Maybe slashing the budget is his next hope to achieve that? Could be, but at what cost to our town and its employees? To our cemetery and our park. By the way, the Czar tried to talk the Highway Super into taking over the park. LOLOL! We ALL know what THAT'S about,don't we!  Jeff declined. Good man! 

      The fit won't hit the shan until the court budget is addressed at the next budget meeting.

BETWEEN THE LINES

HEY! OBAMA DIDN'T GET BIN LADEN

Exclusive: Joseph Farah warns of 'unmitigated disaster for country' if president is re-elected

Published: 1 day ago
author-imageby JOSEPH FARAHEmail Archive
Joseph Farah is founder, editor and CEO of WND and a nationally syndicated columnist with Creators Syndicate. He is the author or co-author of 13 books, including his latest, "The Tea Party Manifesto," and his classic, "Taking America Back," now in its third edition and 14th printing.

How dishonest is Barack Obama?

So dishonest that he now claims, as his major campaign accomplishment over the last four years, the decision to take out Osama bin Laden.

According to a credible report by Maj. Gen. Paul Vallely (Ret.), a former Fox News contributor, Obama did not order the raid by SEAL Team Six and didn’t even know about it until the helicopters had crossed into Pakistani airspace.

Where did Obama learn about the order by then-Director of Central Intelligence Leon Panetta? Where else? The golf course.

Vallely’s report goes even further: It says the White House was kept out of the decision because Obama and Valerie Jarrett had previously nixed similar opportunities.

“This tremendously serious and sensitive information was relayed by a source who has been very frustrated with the continued dishonesty within the White House as it tries to be blame the intelligence community for the Libyan debacle in which Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other brave and dedicated Americans were murdered by an al-Qaida affiliate,” Vallely wrote. “It is reported that  frustration is at a boiling point within the agencies (particularly State, Department of Defense and CIA) with the actions and cover-ups of the president and his administration hierarchy.”

I can tell I have my own sources, some of which will shortly become clear, that confirm the general story as related by Vallely.

Not only is Obama running for re-election primarily on a singular foreign policy accomplishment that doesn’t belong to him, he was actually an obstacle to its achievement.

And, believe it or not, it gets worse.

Look what happened in Libya. He sent an ambassador to aid al-Qaida-affiliated rebels who not only ended up raping him and murdering him, but they sent him unprotected to deliver tens of thousands of surface-to-air missiles and other weapons, which are now clearly in the hands of al-Qaida allies.

These missiles are capable of taking down every U.S. airliner on the planet at any time.

And Obama falsely blamed the planned terrorist attack that took the life of Ambassador Chris Stevens and the lives of other Americans on an inflammatory YouTube video made in the U.S. He knew there was no correlation between the video and the attack, yet he insisted there was for two weeks.

It’s not just a question of dishonesty. It’s a question of competence and character.

How much longer can Americans rely on the foreign policy judgment of a man who bows to the Saudi king, who wears a “wedding ring” inscribed with the words “There is no god but Allah” and who takes credit for the Osama bin Laden raid that he had nothing to do with?

Worse than that, Obama quickly identified those actually responsible for conducting the raid, SEAL Team Six – operatives that work in secrecy for obvious reasons – many of whom were later targeted by al-Qaida and killed in an attack on their Chinook helicopter in Afghanistan.

It doesn’t get much more bizarre than this.

There are only three weeks left until the election.

But, Obama will be in office at least until Jan. 20, 2013.

Imagine the immense damage he can do to the national security interests of this country between now and then.

And then there is the almost unthinkable possibility that Obama will fool enough of the people in the little bit of time we have left to win a second term.

That would be an unmitigated disaster for the country – not only in terms of national security interests, but also in terms of economic and cultural recovery.

Subject: BOs Plans for his next term!

Ed Klein: Five Shocking Things Obama Wants to Do In His Next Term

9/13/12
Ed Klein details Obama's plans for the next four years in his new book Fool Me Twice: Obama's Shocking Plans for the Next Four Years Exposed.
Here are some specific items:
  1. Detailed plans to enact single-payer health care legislation controlled by the Federal government regardless of any Supreme Court decision to overturn Obamacare;
  2. The recreation of a 21st century version of FDR's Works Progress Administration (WPA) program within the Department of Labor that would oversee a massive new bureaucracy and millions of new Federal jobs;
  3. Further gutting of the U.S. military in shocking ways, while using the "savings" for a new "green" stimulus program and the founding of a Federal "green" bank to fund so-called environmentally friendly projects;
  4. The vastly reduced resources of the U.S. Armed Forces will be spread even thinner by using them to combat "global warming," fight global poverty, remedy "injustice," bolster the United Nations and step up use of "peacekeeping" deployments;
  5. An expansive new amnesty program for illegal aliens linked with a reduction in the capabilities of the U.S. Border Patrol and plans to bring in untold numbers of new immigrants with the removal of caps on H-1B visas and green cards.

Obama Wants to Cut $12.9 Billion from Troops

Liberals defend the health care of teachers, unions, and illegal immigrants. But when it comes to the troops, they want to cut.
A proposal by the Obama administration would save $12.9 Billion by 2017 from the Tricare system.
From Fox News
The proposed increases in health care payments by service members, which must be approved by Congress, are part of the Pentagon's $487 billion cut in spending. It seeks to save $1.8 billion from the Tricare medical system in the fiscal 2013 budget, and $12.9 billion by 2017.
"We shouldn't ask our military to pay our bills when we aren't willing to impose a similar hardship on the rest of the population," Rep. Howard "Buck" McKeon, chairman of the House Armed Services Committee and a Republican from California, said in a statement to the Washington Free Beacon. "We can't keep asking those who have given so much to give that much more."

Phony Numbers, Phony Recovery, Phony President

October 15, 2012 by Bob Livingston
Phony Numbers, Phony Recovery, Phony President   
SPECIAL
Mark Twain once wrote, “There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies and statistics.” The phony jobs numbers issued last week and used by the phony President to tout a phony recovery are typical of the lies, damned lies and statistics spouted out daily by the political elites.
The elites walking the halls of power — the true 1 percent — are greedy and murderous psychopaths. They care nothing for their “subjects” and seek only more power, more money and more aggrandizement. They readily lie, cheat, steal and kill to achieve their goals.
The 7.8 percent unemployment number is a manipulated and meaningless figure. The Bureau of Labor Statistics cooks the books each month by using data it terms as “seasonally adjusted.” But this adjustment changes from month to month, and the BLS will not disclose what the adjustments are or how they are arrived at. It also does not tell the public that those factors change month to month.
John Williams at Shadowstats.com explains: “[T]he BLS knowingly has been preparing the seasonally-adjusted headline unemployment numbers on an inconsistent and non-comparable basis for some time. The September number was prepared using a different set of season factors than was used in coming up with the August number. The reporting difference can be large, when proper consistent month-to-month changes are used.”
In addition to applying nebulous and ever-changing seasonal adjustments, the numbers are based in part on information compiled by census workers conducting telephone surveys and home visits. They take monthly samples of 50,000 to 60,000 households in 31 States and the District of Columbia. Their criteria are ambiguous. For instance, the range for part-time work falls between one hour and 34 hours per week. “So if an out-of-work accountant tells a census worker, ‘I got one baby-sitting job this week just to cover my kid’s bus fare, but I haven’t been able to find anything else,’ this can be considered a part-time job,” writes Jack Welch in an op-ed in The Wall Street Journal.
Because of the subjective and open-ended nature of some responses, the  opportunity for data manipulation is legion. There is also a motive for data manipulation. Government workers conducting these tests and compiling the data are members of the American Federation of Government Employees, which is part of the AFL-CIO. Unions are in the tank for the Democratic Party in general and President Barack Obama in particular.
Welch came under fire last week after he tweeted that he was skeptical of the sudden three-tenths of 1 percent drop in unemployment on the heels of Obama’s dismal debate performance.
As an aside, that debate revealed what I and many others have known for some time: Obama is a phony. He’s an empty suit (or chair) without the capacity for intelligent discussion beyond standard rote Marxist talking points, unless one of his masters has a hand up the back of his shirt in the form of a teleprompter. He has demonstrated this time and again through his choice of softball and heavily scripted interviews and the way he has responded as a petulant child to what few challenges he has received from the rare tough interviewer or the occasional Republican politician.
One of Welch’s critics last week was Austan Goolsbee, former chairman of the Obama regime’s Council of Economic Advisers. Demonstrating that, for the elites, history begins today and yesterday is irrelevant, Goolsbee conveniently forgets that just nine years ago he accused the George W. Bush Administration of cooking up phony unemployment numbers. In an op-ed piece for The New York Times published Nov. 30, 2003, Goolsbee wrote:
The government reported that annual unemployment during this recession peaked at only around 6 percent, compared with more than 7 percent in 1992 and more than 9 percent in 1982. But the unemployment rate has been low only because government programs, especially Social Security disability, have effectively been buying people off the unemployment rolls and reclassifying them as “not in the labor force.”
In other words, the government has cooked the books. It has been a more subtle manipulation than the one during the Ronald Reagan Administration, when people serving in the military were reclassified from “not in the labor force” to “employed” in order to reduce the unemployment rate. Nonetheless, the impact has been the same.
Under Obama, disability roles have risen in excess of 3.6 million since 2008, meaning Obama is using the same method of concealing true unemployment as the hated Bush.
According to Shadowstats, data manipulation has its roots in the Richard Nixon Administration. Williams writes that Nixon proposed that the BLS release each month one unemployment number — the one that was most favorable to the Administration — but not reveal whether it was the seasonally adjusted or unadjusted number. While there is no evidence this tactic was ever used, it demonstrates the mindset in Washington.
Even if one takes the official 7.8 percent number and BLS statistics at face value, they’re still nothing to crow about. Besides, the 7.8 percent number will not remain static. The BLS revises the data regularly and won’t issue a final number for the month until January, long after the election and when the September number is no longer relevant. The September number could change four or five times before January.
According to the BLS, total nonfarm payroll employment increased by only 114,000 in September. That’s not enough to keep up with population growth. It’s also 32,000 fewer jobs than the monthly average for this year, and 39,000 fewer jobs than the monthly average in 2011. Manufacturing jobs declined by 16,000 and overall have been unchanged since April. Yet we are to believe unemployment dropped?
The number of people employed part-time for economic reasons (that is they took part-time work because their hours were cut back or it was the only work available to them) rose from 8 million to 8.6 million. Another 802,000 dropped from the labor force and weren’t counted in the jobless data, and they became part of the 2.5 million considered marginally attached to the labor force because they “wanted and were available for work, and had looked for a job sometime in the prior 12 months. They were not counted as unemployed because they had not searched for work in the 4 weeks preceding the survey.”
Despite the rah-rah chanting of Obamaphiles, the truth is the number of people employed is near where it was in 2000 and well below where it was at its 2007 pre-recession peak. Actual unemployment, according to Shadowstats, exceeds 22 percent.
The Feds are likewise manipulating the inflation data. Called the Consumer Price Index (CPI), it is a measure of inflation based on the cost of a basket of goods. But the contents of the basket changes from time to time. Politicians like this because it is used to determine, among other things, the annual cost-of-living adjustments for Social Security. By manipulating the contents of the basket of goods, rising inflation can be masked and Social Security adjustments can be kept artificially low.
Using pre-Bill Clinton CPI methodology (that is, methodology employed until 1990), CPI inflation in August (September numbers are due out tomorrow) was 5.6 percent. Using methodology employed in 1980, CPI inflation in August was 9.3 percent, according to Shadowstats.

American Flag is Being Censored!!

3/1/12
Judge James Ware has ruled! According to him it is "reasonable" for a school to ban students from wearing the American Flag.
The school is Live Oak High School in San Francisco and they had banned students from wearing the US flag on any article of clothing on May 5, 2010. They allowed Mexican students to wear Mexican colors. Their belief was that it was Cinco de Mayo and wearing the US flag could incite violence.
Robert Muise of American Freedom Law Center:
"Here, school officials feared that our clients would offend 'Mexican' students if they wore their flag shirts to school on Cinco de Mayo, so they ordered the students to either remove their shirts or leave school in direction violation of their First Amendment rights,"
This case has gone to the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals.

Tim Allen's Obama Joke Censored by ABC

10/15/12
Comedian Tim Allen has an idea for a home improvement at the White House: Get a new tenant!
A rare Republican in Democrat-loving Hollywood — let alone in prime time — Allen delivers a comic smackdown in the season premiere of his ABC sitcom, “Last Man Standing.”
It’s the first sign the GOP may be making inroads in what has been nearly solid support for the president on the left coast. 
In the episode, airing four days before the election, Allen’s uber-conservative character, Mike Baxter, tries to persuade his impressionable 18-year-old daughter to vote for Mitt Romney.
“The Democrats will tax [your] inheritance and probably use that money to throw gay weddings for illegal aliens,” Allen’s character tells the Kardashian-loving teen, who thinks Bill Clinton’s mother is secretary of state.
“Democrats love spending other people’s money. Free health care for everybody . . . Whoopee! Now lazy people can go around licking doorknobs.”
While Allen squeezed some jokes in at the president’s expense, he wasn’t given an unlimited leash to bite into Bam.
Allen told The Post that the Disney-owned network scrapped numerous jokes, including one in which his character calls the president “a communist.”
“I love communist jokes,” Allen said. “The right sees everything as a communist.”
“We also had this line about the Clintons where I say, ‘They’re like shingles; just when you think they are gone, they pop back up.’ ”
That, too, got cut.
Among the lines that survived:
* “Romney is a doer. It’s easy to be consistent, like Obama, when all you have done is ‘organize communities.’ ”
* “He did a great job with that South Side of Chicago. It runs like a watch down there. Of course, you can’t wear one.”
Allen said there are plenty of jokes aimed at Romney — because the network thought it was necessary to give the show some balance.

The Power of FEAR.               10-18-2012


      Fear is an evil master. I have always believed that were it not for fear, the world would be a much nicer place. In recent years, people have become afraid to speak their minds for FEAR of offending, thanks to the Liberal , "Political Correctness" crowd. They are afraid to expose corruption and crimes for FEAR of retaliation. Pastors FEAR speaking the truth about our leaders and candidates for FEAR of losing their Tax Exemptions. The list goes on , and ON. 

        Much of what people fear are the rules of government-generated terrorism. Yes, it IS terrorism, perpetrated on the people by their own government.  Why can the I.R.S threaten our clergy with huge tax bills if they dare to exercise their right to Free Speech?  Why do minorities get away with rioting or threatening to riot if they don't get their own way?  Why, does America have a crime called "Hate Speech" that can actually cause the arrest of a citizen for saying something that someone else finds offensive? Most importantly, why is it that you or I can be penalized or even killed for speaking out against crime and corruption? I'll tell you why.

         For far too long, we Americans have ALLOWED ourselves to be intimidated and controlled by threats, both real and imagined. Criminals and Corrupt Politicians have used their connections and positions to destroy the lives of those that oppose them or reveal their sin. The example they set by these actions is powerful and effective.  Kill one, and the others will learn to keep silent. Therein lies the root of the problem.  Americans have lost their sense of outrage and indignation, their commitment to the Word of God and their in-born knowledge of right vs. wrong. Few people are willing to take a risk or make a stand against the unacceptable. It is easier and safer to go about your own business and muddle through.

        Safer maybe, but what does it say about us as people, as Americans, and as Christians? The Bible tells us that we have a choice.  We can choose the wide path and follow the crowd, or we can choose the narrow way that is difficult and demanding, and may bring persecution down upon us. Human laziness and selfishness leads most to the wider path. They become a lamb among the flock of sheep. 

          The election we are facing in three weeks is a lot like that. Barack Obama has more secrets then the C.I.A. Hundreds of vital questions about this man have been asked and never answered. He has committed Treason and peed on our Constitution more times than I can count. His alliance with the Islamic world is undeniable, his pathological lying is obvious to even the least observant among us, and his treachery goes unchallenged and unpunished. Why?  FEAR.  Those who hold the proof of who and what Obama really is, are terrified to expose him. I can only IMAGINE the threats these people have received. 

       Our little town of 2400 souls, is no different. Decades of board corruption, cronyism, board-stacking, lying, conflict of interest, nepotism, etc.,etc, have NEVER been challenged until 2009, and STILL, we fight for justice and punishment for the guilty! I have SEEN the fear that allows these injustices to continue. I saw it when Stan Koloski was ZEO and the board was terrified of him. I saw it in others as well, in several cases that I won't mention here, as I don't want to make targets of the innocent. Politicians keep their ears to the ground and gather information on their peers. Stan was an ACE at this game! Store up the skeletons and pull them out when things get hot. 100% effective, every time!  FEAR.

         If there ever was a time for Americans to "Man-Up" and STOP being afraid, it is NOW. I cannot speak for others, but for me, the only thing I fear is God's Judgement. The judgement of man means absolutely nothing to me, and I will do and say whatever I feel is necessary and right and if anyone is offended by the truth, so be it. Remember the old saying, "There is Nothing to Fear but Fear Itself"?  It's true. It's time for us all to stand united against the crime, the immorality, the scams and cover-ups, the attacks on our Constitution and our God-Given Rights, and all that is unacceptable. There is power in numbers and unity, much more power than there is in FEAR. Be Fearless! 

=================================================================================


     I am pretty tired of hearing the backlash to Romney's  comment about "Files of Women".  The guy left a word out, and should have said, "Files of women's resumes'". What is so objectionable about that, even if he had MEANT to say it that way? Yet the slip of the tongue Obama made at the same debate, re: the Benghazi attacks and his next-day speech in the rose garden, is hushed up? Hmmm. 

      This political  battle is heating up so quickly and is so vicious, I can barely keep up with the information I want to share with you! It comes in faster than I can sort, fact-check and post it.  When this election is over, I intend to spend an evening deleting all the election stuff from this site, as I have used SO much space already! Three weeks to go. How many pages is that?  LOL!

Forensic Analyst Says Obama Confessed His Foreign Birth and Ineligibility to be President


Have you ever been accused of ‘reading between the lines’ of what someone said or wrote? Dr. Andrew G. Hodges has solved a number of crimes doing just that, reading between the lines. As a clinical professor of psychiatry at the UAB School of Medicine, he has been used by the FBI to help solve a number of high profile crimes. His involvement includes:
  • O.J. Simpson ‘suicide note’ which confirmed that he did commit a double a murder.
  • JonBenet ransom note which led to the identity of her killer.
  • BTK serial killer’s letters which led him to predict another murder when no one else did.
  • Natalee Holloway murder where he analyzed the statements made by Joran van der Sloot and Deepak Kalpoe, which tied them both the crime.
  • Casey Anthony’s letters written from jail that confirms that she murdered her daughter.
  • Bill Clinton – Monika Lewinsky confession and apology.
Hodges has developed a technique known as Thoughtprint Decoding, which is a form of psycholinguistic profiling. His technique has proven to be a cutting edge profiling tool that has helped to identify and capture various criminals. Dr. Steven Egger, associate professor of criminology at the University of Houston, Clear Water recognizes the value of what Hodges is doing and said:
“[Hodges' technique is] becoming the cutting edge of forensic science…Dr. Hodges’ investigation of forensic documents in the Natalee Holloway case indicates that his ‘thoughtprint decoding method’ and ‘reading between the lines’ is, in fact, becoming a major contribution to law enforcement tools used by criminal investigators.”
Knowing Dr. Hodges reputation, WND requested that he use his forensic profiling to examine the address that President Barack Obama made to the United Nations on September 25, 2012. In his analyses, Hodges asserts that Obama regularly alluded to his foreign birth, illegal presidency which is an attack on the U.S. Constitution.
Hodges concludes that the truths revealed in Obama’s U.N. address match up to the ones he made in his inaugural address in 2009:
“Deep down a guilty person cannot stop looking at his misdeed, his crime. Obama’s brilliant unconscious constantly comprehends his guilt and is incessantly moved to confess. Remember, the deeper mind speaks symbolically in a narrative language using key images. It is much like reading a parable.”
“The first thing Obama does in his U.N. address is make reference to his foreign birth – exactly as he did in his 2009 Inauguration Day speech when his opening sentence introduced the word ‘borne’ and thus the question, ‘Where was I born?’”
“At the U.N., Obama begins to tell ‘about an American named … who was born in a town called … He came to love … the people of Africa … and he would carry that commitment throughout his life.”
“His super intelligence, his deeper unconscious is actually saying, ‘I’m going to tell you the secret story of my supposed American birth – I was really born in Africa to which I have a lifelong commitment.’ His story pictures a foreigner traveling between America and Africa – matching an identical idea in his inaugural address.”
“Next Obama unconsciously confesses his illegal presidency was a secret revolution against America. Obama instantly provides a second crucial birth marker linking ‘birth’ to ‘revolution.’ Note the phrase: ‘the revolution, he supported the birth.’ The super-intel suggests that Obama, the foreigner in America, leads a secret revolution in which his foreign birth subverts America’s constitutional requirements.”
“In his inauguration address, Obama repeatedly appealed to citizens to hold him to constitutional standards. He declared America was at ‘war against a far-reaching (foreign) network of violence and hatred’ – suggesting as a foreigner he had violently usurped the oath of office.”
“In the U.N. speech, we find numerous calls for a change in leadership – Obama’s unconscious moral compass guiding America to the truth about his fraudulent presidency and what we need to do. Just one example. ‘We supported a transition of leadership … because the interests of the people were not being served by a corrupt status quo.’ His secret call for a change in the U.S. presidency matches his inauguration speech story about how his foreign-born father could not have been served in a Washington, D.C., restaurant – suggesting Obama cannot serve or be seated as an illegal president.”
Dr Hodges is also the author of The Obama Confession: Secret Fear. Secret Fury. YouTube has a seven episode video series of Dr. Hodges talking about this book and why President Barack Hussein Obama is a different kind of deceiver, an unscrupulous politician. You can view them here.
The bottom line is that no matter which direction an investigator turns, Obama is not eligible to hold the office of President of the United States. Yet I don’t understand why anyone in Washington hasn’t done something about it. The only answer I can think of is that they are all too afraid of the powerful people behind Obama. If they could pull off threatening the life of Chelsea Clinton to shut Bill Clinton up four years ago, then no one on Capitol Hill would be safe from similar threats.
These really are scary times!

Obama Supporters Want to Murder Romney Over Food Stamps


Before, during, and after the debate, Twitter exploded with comments calling for Romney’s assassination. Most of the comments contained some level of profanity. Some of the more benign comments were “I’m gonna murder Romney right now,” and (misspellings included) “Somebody needs to asassinate This mofo Romney.”
We’ve been reassured by a group called Think Progress, more or less a front group for the Obama campaign and closely aligned with Media Matters, that no one should be concerned, and only those that draw attention to the comments are to blame.
Think Progress had an article accusing the Drudge Report of “stirring up another race-baiting conspiracy theory” for simply linking to articles that show Obama supporters on Twitter commenting about how they want to murder Romney. These were legitimate tweets by legitimate Twitter users. This isn’t a “conspiracy theory.” People were calling for Romney’s assassination if he wins.
Many of the commenters calling for Romney’s death were angry because they thought Romney would take away their food stamps if he won. (Sounds like a conspiracy theory.) The very thought of being removed from their host makes them want to murder whoever tries to get in the way of their parasitic relationship. They’re acting like radical Muslims overseas who hold up signs that read, “Behead those who insult the Prophet Muhammad!” The Twitter comments might as well read, “Behead those who insult the Prophet Obama!” Yet, after all this, Think Progress is telling us, “There’s nothing to see here. Move along.”
NBC News carried a story detailing all 2 incidents where white Republicans had taken empty chairs and hung them in their trees (or “hanged” them, depending on whether or not you think the chairs were actually being punished). The media were calling these incidents “empty chair lynchings,” making the connection to Clint Eastwood’s “empty chair” speech, where the empty chair represented Obama. Since Obama is half-black, and since white people have lynched black people in the past, there must be some dark, racial connection, and these people (all 2) may have been making death threats against the president. The Secret Service is now “investigating” these incidents.
These 2 “empty chair lynchings” were newsworthy, but everybody should just ignore all the actual and detailed death threats against Romney. Just bringing it up is a “conspiracy theory.”
We all know that local, state and federal law enforcement monitor social networking sites. They scan for any “anti-government” rhetoric that they think might lead to a terrorist attack. People have been investigated, arrested and detained for Facebook and Twitter posts that are nothing compared to the Obama supporters blatantly calling out for the murder of Romney. Will the Secret Service or FBI be investigating all those tweets? Don’t count on it.

=====================================================================

Why the Sudden Swing in the Polls to Romney?


A lot of voters have not been following the presidential election. As the election nears, more people are beginning to pay attention. Those of you who read articles on this site know all the issues. A majority of American voters don’t. Now that they’re paying attention, they need a way to make their decision.
The so-called undecided voters are shifting to Romney because they see other people shifting to Romney. They now believe it’s OK to vote against President Obama and not be thought of as a racist. They feel comfortable following the pack.
A similar thing is happening in Hollywood. First only a few brave conservatives stepped out of the political closet. These were big-name actors who had standing in Hollywood and were box office favorites, that is, their movies made money. Jon Voight, Kelsey Grammer, and Gary Sinise are three recognizable names. They’re making it easier for younger conservatives to step forward. Stacey Dash is one recent example.
There’s a report that Jews are moving to Romney.
Despite losing some ground to Obama in the TIPP/IBD’s Daily tracking poll of Oct. 11, the poll of likely voters shows a dramatic, unprecedented shift among likely Jewish voters, with Romney overtaking the lead from President Obama for the first time. According to the 5 day polling sample, taken after the Denver debate, Mitt Romney garners support from 44 percent to Obama’s 40 percent.
Another report concludes that while “Romney may not beat Reagan’s share of the Jewish vote in the actual election, but right now he’s polling ahead of him. And often ahead of every Republican in the last 100 years.”
There’s ideological and political safety in numbers.
For the longest time we were being told by the media that there was a gender gap. Not anymore. Women are shifting to the Romney camp.
The Democrats have pushed the war on women theme too hard and too long. This works for the base that the Dems already have, but most American women aren’t the least bit interested in free birth control.
Then there are those women who believe that birth control is fine as long as the person wanting it pays for it. I’ve heard something like the following from several women.
“If you want to use birth control, then you pay for it. Don’t bring the government in and force me to pay for your birth control. If you want to open your legs to any man who puts the moves on you, then pay for your own contraception. If you get pregnant, I shouldn’t be forced to pay for your abortion. Abortion is the taking of a human life. You’ll have to stand before God on that one. Don’t make me complicit in your violation of the Sixth Commandment.”
Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), a liberal masquerading as a Republican, accused people who don’t want their tax dollars to pay for someone else’s birth control and abortions as waging a war on women. “It makes no sense to make this attack on women,” she said on a Public Radio station. “If you don’t feel this is an attack, you need to go home and talk to your wife and your daughters.”
I spoke with my wife, and she said abortion is a war on pre-born girls and boys, about 1.5 million each year. She also wanted to know why she was being taxed to pay for someone else’s birth control. It’s that simple.
Obama said Romney “feels more comfortable having politicians in Washington decide the healthcare choices that women are making.” I’ve never heard Romney say anything like this. In point of fact, it’s Washington that’s making our healthcare choices. The so-called Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) is government inspired, government written, and government ruled on. It’s a healthcare mandate with a compulsory tax to pay for it.
People are tired listening to Obama’s blame shifting on the economy and his lame attempts to fix the economy by throwing their money at companies that only squander it. They’re fed up with the notion that if they disagree with an Obama policy, they are by definition a racist. They don’t like being lied to. Everybody knows that a never-seen film was NOT the reason our embassies were attacked and four Americans died.

Hate to say "I told ya so" , but I did!


Is Post-Election Riot Threat Real?

October 17, 2012 by Bob Livingston
Is Post-Election Riot Threat Real?
The “Twitter-verse” erupted this week with threats to riot or assassinate Mitt Romney should President Barack Obama lose the Nov. 6 election.
This brings up a few questions. Is this a reflection of real outrage being felt in the black community? If it’s real, does it reflect the sentiment of a small or a large segment of the black community? Or is this manufactured outrage being used for a broader purpose?
Americans have rioted before for lesser reasons. Simply having their favorite team win the Super Bowl or World Series has led to riots in cities like Boston, Detroit, Denver and Los Angeles. In Lexington, Ky., fans of the Kentucky Wildcats were setting fires and firing guns within minutes of watching their team win the NCAA Basketball Championship in April.
In Cincinnati in 2001, people rioted for three days after police shot 19-year-old Timothy Thomas. Riots broke out in more than 100 U.S. cities in 1968 following the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. Those riots came just three years after the infamous Watts riots in Los Angeles that began when a small crowd began throwing rocks at a California Highway Patrol officer who had stopped a drunk driver. People rioted in Newark, N.J., over an incident that never happened after a rumor began that police had killed a black cab driver they had in custody.
There’s no denying that blacks saw a rise in their self-esteem and the  reinforcement of America as a land of equal opportunity following Obama’s 2008 election. Obama’s defeat after just four years could be seen as a major blow to that self-esteem and a pivot back toward black oppression.
Add to that divisive rhetoric from both political parties, a voting base ginned up over the ongoing loss of freedom (real), and the threat (just imagined) that Republicans are going to take away entitlements, ongoing economic hardships and a high rate of unemployment (for whites 7 percent, for blacks 13.4 percent), and you have the makings for trouble.
I have written before that food stamps and welfare are all that are staving off riots like those that have occurred in Greece and Spain. Those who live in or near congested areas should take extra precautions of the prevailing mood as Election Day draws near. If real, the outrage could lead to days and weeks of unrest.

What if Atlas DOES Shrug ?                             10-21-2012


            Ayn Rand warned us a long time ago. Her book is a work of fiction, but it was prophetic , and Rand's foresight seems amazing today. As does Orwell's, but human nature does not accept warnings well.  We all have to see for ourselves, make our OWN mistakes, or in the case of men, pee on the electric fence.  Just look at your kids. You can tell them till you're blue in the face, that you have been there and done that and it didn't end well. They think you're stupid and have to learn their lessons the hard way, just like WE did when WE were kids! 

                   Sadly, it isn't just kids that refuse to take advice from the experienced.  We are all guilty of it from time to time.  Patriotic Americans from coast to coast have been trying to warn the Democrats, the Liberals and the young, about the true agenda of Barack Hussein Obama since 2007.  Few listened, and look at the damage that has resulted. The same people are still not listening, and I'm afraid to contemplate what WILL happen if Obama wins a second term. 

                        My husband and I took a trip to Philmont this afternoon to deliver some hay, and since it was such a great day, we took the back roads and just meandered along. As I always do, I was taking notice of the campaign signs along the way.  A lot of folks have asked me who this "Mott" guy is that is running for Supreme Court.  I had to look him up myself as I had never heard of him. One photo of him cozied up to the Democratic Chair for Columbia County and I knew that this was going to be one election where I would likely vote in a partisan manner.

               I seldom vote across-the-board, but THIS year, the Democrats have NO winners on their ticket at any level.  It's a lose-lose of losers.  I did find today, that Cemetery Road in New Lebanon has a heavy concentration of Dems. Obama signs ALL over the place, especially in the area of the old mill and Mill Road. I knew Lebanon had been crumbling under the weight of the new liberal transplants for the last 10 years, but I had no idea that they settled in packs. Apparently, they DO. Some of the Obama supporters were no big surprise to me, while others were a total SHOCK!

            On County Rt. 9 South, I was in for yet another surprise. Another "grouping" of Obama supporters. One in particular was SO mind-numbing and heart-breaking, that it will be a long time before I can accept it. Someone I consider a dear and precious friend and a person of integrity and intelligence, has an Obama sign on the lawn. I was literally devastated!  Now please do not get me wrong, I don't mean to say that just because someone is my friend, they should vote the same way I do. It was just the shock of finding out that this particular person is not who I thought he WAS. He has every right to vote as he chooses, as do we all, but I am totally dumb-founded that he supports the destruction of our country, being the good man he is.

            Fortunately, I didn't see any more Obama signs until we got into the village of Philmont. No surprise there, as Philmont has a heavy concentration of welfare recipients, and we all know how much THEY love Obama, and WHY. My husband gets a real kick out of my outrage over Obama getting ANY support from ANY American, and he laughed at me as I pointed at signs and commented on the number of each. At least I amuse someone with my suffering. LOLOL!!!  

           I also learned today that B. Hussein Obama is actually SUING the military to prevent a requested three-day voting extension for deployed soldiers! Umm, I don't think a concession of three days for soldiers who are out in the trenches is a lot to ask, do you? Seeing as how they are fighting and dying for our safety, I believe we can give them three  extra days to use their right to vote. Of course, Obama knows that the majority of American Soldiers vote Conservative, so if he can block their votes, he WILL. Wow, MORE integrity!  Seen the movie, 2016 yet? You need to! EVERYONE needs to see it before they vote, regardless of party. Read "Amateur" yet? Highly recommended. 

       Speaking of Highly Recommended,  I had the best bowl of soup EVER tonight at Smitty's!  Cream of Chicken Tarragon.  Hard to out-do his Corn Chowder, but this is a strong contender! If you haven't tried his soups, you don't know what you're missing, and this is soup weather! 5 Stars!  Don't forget that you have two important events to choose from for tomorrow night. The final Presidential Debate is on at 9 p.m, and the 2nd Lebanon Budget Meeting is at 7 at the American Legion Hall.   God Bless.  JJ

For those too young too remember; There is a place called  The Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial in France memorializing the fallen US soldiers of the D-Day Invasion to retake Europe from the Nazis.
There are  thousands of white crosses and Star of David grave markers:
There is also a D-Day Monument in Bedford , VA ... a relatively short 200 mile helicopter ride from the White House:
In all the years since D-Day 1945 , there are only three occasions when the sitting President of the United States of America failed to go to the D-Day Monument that honors the soldiers killed during the Invasion.
Only Three Times...
The occasions were :
1. Barack Obama 2010
2. Barack Obama 2011
3. Barack Obama 2012
For the past 68 years, every single president , except Obama, has paid tribute to the fallen American soldiers killed on D-Day.
This year, instead of honoring the soldiers, he made a 3,000 mile campaign trip on Air Force 1 to California to raise funds for the upcoming election.
Priorities? - - It speaks volumes... doesn't it?
NOBAMA 2012!

UN Warns Americans: Do Not Elect Mitt Romney



Waterboarding Got Osama, Barack did NOT!

The United Nations Special Rapporteur on Counter-Terrorism and Human Rights has warned Americans not to elect Republican Mitt Romney in next month’s presidential election, saying that doing so would be “a democratic mandate for torture.”

The UN’s Ben Emmerson was referring to Romney’s refusal to rule out the use of waterboarding in interrogating terror detainees, a practice that President Barack Obama has ended.
Colin Perkel of The Canadian Press reported Emmerson’s remarks from a symposium in Toronto on the impact of 9/11 on human rights:
"The re-introduction of torture under a Romney administration would significantly increase the threat levels to (Americans) at home and abroad," Emmerson said.
"Such a policy, if adopted, would expose the American people to risks the Obama administration is not currently exposing them to."
U.S. intelligence services were able to pinpoint Osama bin Laden’s location and carry out the successful mission to kill him in May 2011 based on information yielded during waterboarding of 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, and information from Al Qaeda operative Hassan Ghul, who was captured in Iraq in 2004.
Obama opposed both waterboarding and the Iraq War, without which bin Laden would not have been found.
Emmerson warned that Romney could reinstate waterboarding if he took office. He also criticized the Obama administration’s drone program--an initiative begun by the Bush administration but accelerated by President Obama, partly because of his reluctance to capture, detain or interrogate terror suspects.
In a second term, Obama may renew efforts to close the Guantanámo Bay prison, despite widespread public opposition.

RETIRED GENERALS SUPPORTING ROMNEY


Presidential candidate Mitt Romney boosted his foreign policy credentials with the announcement of his Military Advisory Committee, which includes over 300 retired military generals and admirals who are supporting Romney for President. 

The list includes two of the most important military commanders of the last decade, such as General Tommy Franks, who commanded our troops through the initial invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq as well as General James Conway, who helped oversee "the Surge" in Iraq and is one of the most popular Commandants the Marine Corps ever had.

"I'm proud to be supporting Mitt Romney in this critical election about our nation's future," said General Tommy Franks, USA (Ret.), Past Commander, U.S. Central Command. "Governor Romney is committed to restoring America's leadership role in the world. Instead of playing politics with our military, he will strengthen our defense posture by reversing the President's devastating defense cuts. The fact of the matter is that we cannot afford another four years of feckless foreign policy. We need level-headed leadership which will protect our interests and defend our values with clarity and without apology."

"I consider the unprecedented national debt amongst the five greatest threats to the security of our great nation," said General James Conway, USMC (Ret.), Past Commandant of the Marine Corps. "And yet, I see no indication the current administration, if re-elected, is intent on changing that trajectory. Clearly Defense should bear a portion of the burden in order to regain control of our debt, but the idea of massive military cuts -- at a time of increased global instability-should not even be in the cards. As I listen to Mitt Romney, I am convinced that he 'gets it'."


This is extremely important news in our efforts to show why we must defeat Obama and elect a new President who would be a better leader for our troops and better equipped to meet the challenges to security and will not apologize for America's greatness.

In his 4 years as President, Obama has apologized or America, lowered our guard, and tried to 'reset' our relations in the Middle East by bowing to foreign leaders and refusing to identify terrorists and terrorist acts where they exist. The result has been that our enemies are bolder and more confident in attacking the United States, assured that President Obama will do little or nothing to stop them!

==============================================================================================

Three Headlines Obama Doesn't Want You To See
In addition to yesterday's disappointing economic news and the towering national debt, other elements of American life are also deteriorating under this president. Three quick examples, without further commentary:
Welfare spending has grown substantially over the past four years, reaching $746 billion in 2011 — or more than Social Security, basic defense spending or any other single chunk of the federal government — according to a new memo by the Congressional Research Service. The steady rise in welfare spending, which covers more than 80 programs primarily designed to help low-income Americans, got a big boost from the 2009 stimulus and has grown, albeit somewhat more slowly, in 2010 and 2011. One reason is that more people are qualifying in the weak economy, but the federal government also has broadened eligibility so that more people qualify for  programs.
Violent crimes unexpectedly jumped 18 percent last year, the first rise in nearly 20 years, and property crimes rose for first time in a decade. But academic experts said the new government data fall short of signaling a reversal of the long decline in crime. The U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics reported Wednesday that the increase in the number of violent crimes was the result of an upward swing in simple assaults, which rose 22 percent, from 4 million in 2010 to 5 million last year. The incidence of rape, sexual assault and robbery remained largely unchanged, as did serious violent crime involving weapons or injury. Property crimes were up 11 percent in 2011, from 15.4 million in 2010 to 17 million, according to the bureau's annual national crime victimization survey. Household burglaries rose 14 percent, from 3.2 million to 3.6 million. The number of thefts jumped by 10 percent, from 11.6 million to 12.8 million.
It's the latest snapshot of the growing burden of student debt and it's another discouraging one: Two-thirds of the national college class of 2011 finished school with loan debt, and those who borrowed walked off the graduation stage owing on average $26,600 - up about 5% from the class before. The latest figures are calculated in a report out Thursday by the California-based Institute for College Access and Success (TICAS) and likely underestimate the problem in some ways because they don't include most graduates of for-profit colleges, who typically borrow more than their counterparts elsewhere.

Obviously, the president does not exert control over some of these factors, but they absolutely play into Americans' right track/wrong track perceptions. Is the country better off? Forward.

Now THIS Story Sounds Just Like Lebanon!!!!

Obama’s Cabinet Members Violating Federal Election Law and No One Cares


In 1939, the Act to Prevent Pernicious Political Activities was passed by Congress and became federal law. The act prohibits federal employees from being involved or holding membership in any political organization which advocates the overthrow of the constitutional form of government. (Say, isn’t that what the Democratic Party has been doing with the help of Barack Obama and Eric Holder?)
The main aspect of the Act, later called the Hatch Act after New Mexico Senator Carl Hatch, is to prohibit federal civil servant employees in the executive branch from taking part in partisan political activity. It also forbids them participating in political campaign activities and from intimidating or bribing voters. They are also not allowed to use public funds for political campaign purposes.
The Hatch Act also covers all Presidential appointees including the Secretary of State and other cabinet positions. This could be part of the reason that Hillary Clinton was outside the country during the Democratic National Convention.
As a rule most violators of the Hatch Act are instantly terminated. In lieu of the fact that President Barack Obama’s declaration of establishing the toughest ethics laws and transparency of his administration, you would expect him to keep to the normal procedure for those in his executive branch who violate the Hatch Act, but that does not seem to be the case.
In February, Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius attended a taxpayer funded campaign event in North Carolina. After being publicly introduced at the Secretary of HHS, Sebelius endorsed Walter Dalton’s re-election bid for Lieutenant Governor of North Carolina. She also publicly endorsed Obama for re-election as well.
The U.S. Office of Special Counsel announced in September that Sebelius had violated the Hatch Act. A number of Republicans demanded that she be removed from her Cabinet position, but to date, it appears that no punitive actions have been taken against her for federal election law violation.
But wait! There’s more!
Since Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder and other members of the executive branch are getting away with breaking laws, why not join. At least that seems to be the philosophy of Ken Salazar, Secretary of the Interior. This Wednesday, Salazar appeared at a campaign event being held for Barack Obama in Montrose County, Colorado.
At the event, he was introduced as Secretary of the Interior before he told the audience:
“I am here to represent Barack Obama and to tell you he needs Montrose County this November. The truth is Colorado is right in the spotlight of the nation and the world in this election.”
A former associate counsel to President George Bush, Scott Coffina commented on Salazar’s violation, telling The Daily Caller:
“The violation is the use of his title in a political setting. You’re not allowed to use your official title or influence to affect the outcome of an election.”
“Technically they would both be subject to termination for what are very different violations, because the way the law is set up, the presumptive penalty is termination. I’m not saying that’s fair, but that’s the law.”
Americans for Prosperity in Colorado Deputy Director Sean Paige also commented on Salazar’s indiscretion saying:
“There seems to be a double standard, where if you’re just a run-of-the-mill government worker and you get caught politicizing the job, you get fired, but if you’re a Cabinet-level official and your boss is in a tight election, anything goes.”
But why should we be surprised of the double standards that Obama and his cabinet operate by. In his campaigning, Obama constantly says he wants an equal playing field for everyone, yet he has never lived up to that himself. I lost count a few months back but I would not be surprised to find out that Obama and his Cabinet have broken more laws than Bonnie and Clyde, but at least Bonnie and Clyde didn’t away with it forever and hopefully neither will Obama and his minions.

When Atlas Shrugged and Logan Ran

Written on Sunday, October 21, 2012 by Ralph Barker

johngalt

Who is John Galt? This is the question raised in the first sentence of Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged and continues to be asked throughout the novel. Who is this mysterious man and why is he so critical to the novel’s message? The reader discovers his importance as the story unfolds over its 1100 plus pages.
Most readers are probably already familiar with Atlas Shrugged. Many of us read it in school. Rand’s book has returned to a high level of popularity today and is once again in much demand. Sales jumped by 250% the year Barack Hussein Obama took office in 2008. This said a lot about where people feared America was headed at the time. The last four years have served to confirm their fears.
Why has this book risen again to such popularity? It is because Rand’s fiction has become today’s reality. It prophetic message is proving true.
The book was first published in 1957, fifty-five years ago, when America was a totally different, less regulated, much freer country than it is now. Americans were not fearful of a nanny state in those days. America offered fertile ground for investors and entrepreneurs. America offered hope and opportunity to those willing to work hard. But Ayn Rand was able to discern where we were headed even then. We now see her view of the future taking shape.
Not everyone will be as aware of the book or movie titled Logan’s Run. It is a good sci-fi story that also, like Atlas Shrugged, contains some prophetic themes that we can currently identify in our culture. Allow me to share a brief synopsis of each of these unique books in order to make some points about our current state of the union.
Atlas Shrugged is about a society that is so “fair minded” and heavily regulated that it becomes increasingly difficult and finally impossible for producers to be successful. In the story, Congress levels the playing field in a way that would make Obama proud. Redistribution is almost a holy word. By law, wealthy, successful people are forced to share what they have worked so hard to acquire.
The elected officials went so far as to limit the number of businesses a person could own to only one. Business owners were forced to give up any additional businesses in their portfolio. Congress continued to pass additional legislation in the spirit of fairness and to redistribute whatever the successful people owned. As these measures continued society began to fall apart. Decay set in everywhere.
Finally, society’s producers, led by John Galt, go on strike and begin to disappear. Where they go no one knows. As Galt and his followers bow out, society continues to crumble at an increasing rate. Eventually, everything comes to a grinding halt.
This book is wordy, but very well written. For those who cannot conquer a tome of this size I recommend they watch the Atlas Shrugged movies. Part one was released in 2011. Part two was recently released and part three is scheduled for release sometime in 2013. There is also the Cliff Notes which is as long as some novels, 133 pages.
Logan’s Run, written by A.M. Putnamis a book and film that depicts another future society. It was written in 1967. In this story, that takes place in the year 2274, society is almost perfect. Citizens live in a domed city, isolated from all that is outside. In fact, no one really knows what is outside. People work little and enjoy all the pleasures of life. There is one little hitch though. Life ends at 30. That’s the bad news. The good news is that Social Security isn’t an issue.
The main elements of both these futuristic novels are finding uncanny fulfillment in 2012. We have a government that heavily regulates every area of society and the regulations are coming out at a growing rate. In 1936 there were only about 3,000 new regulations issued. In 2011 there were over 80,000 new regulations.
Like in Atlas Shrugged the flood of regulations and massive government regulatory agencies monitoring us, cause us to lose more and more freedom each year. Businesses find it increasingly hard to be profitable while they try to comply with all the red tape. Today’s producers are already holding back and in some cases cutting back as they prepare for higher taxes and Obamacare.
In Atlas Shrugged, at the end of the book, the lights of New York go out. There is little motivation for people to try any more. The over regulation and oppressive legislation has taken its toll. Basically, the society is destroyed. Those who could save it are nowhere to be found. John Galt and friends lay low.
Likewise, today producers are really good guys even though our government, the media, and many brainwashed citizens see them as villainous, greedy, evil people. This attitude, if it continues, will eventually usher in our own pervasive stagnation as it did in Rand’s novel.
Whether you personally like them or not, our country needs the Donald Trumps, Steve Wynns, and Steve Jobs. They are our John Galts. It is likely that because of these people or people like them that you and I have a job. Someone has to take the risks and invest the capital. We should be thankful that they still do.
Socialism or Communism does not appeal to those of us who know what this country can offer. Who of us wanted to move to the “workers paradise” in the Soviet Union or to Cuba or other communist countries?
I’m not a psychiatrist but it makes me wonder about the mental health of liberals who still drool over communist Cuba. I don’t see them moving there or having medical procedures performed there. I don’t think they vacation there either. So, what is the attraction? It must be that in Cuba leaders have the ability to totally control everyone else. This is the dream of liberals who think they are smarter than all us “little people,” we who can’t make good decisions on our own.
Logan’s Run depicts a culture of youth. There are no old people since everyone dies at 30. Therefore the young people didn’t have to support the elderly with social security or Medicare. We, on the other hand, are an aging population. The younger generations are stuck with supporting the older ones. There are less and less workers today available to maintain the system. Plus, people are living much longer than when Social Security first appeared.
One solution to the problem of the elderly, a radical one, is to eliminate as many of them as possible. How could this be done without raising too many eyebrows or holding anyone accountable? Obamacare is one way to eliminate some of the old folks with little public notice or outcry.
I don’t care what the politicians say or the President says more people are going to die under Obamacare. It is a system that requires rationing. By definition rationing is distributing limited resources. Everyone will not be able to get what they need. This is already true in Canada and other socialistic nations. Some people have to pay with their lives. Americans will have to get used to this new reality.
There hasn’t been much said recently about the “death panels.” There is much debate about whether or not these do or will actually exist. The truth is that it doesn’t really matter whether there is a panel or not, rationing means that there aren’t enough doctors or treatments to go around for everyone. Whether decisions are made by one person or a group of people, someone will have to decide about who can get what treatment. They must decide who lives and who dies. You better hope you know someone who makes these decisions.
I believe that Obamacare probably would not be a reality if abortion had not been legalized in 1973. Life has been devalued. We murder millions (pronounced MIL-YUNs) of our children by abortion. As a nation, we are more concerned with quality of life than life itself. This same concern with quality of life is bleeding into the health care system and will influence decisions as to who will live or die.
Even though Ayn Rand and A.M. Putnam had a good sense about the future and we see it happening, all is not gloom and doom. We are where we are, but we do have options.
I apologize for suddenly waxing spiritual here, but answers are ultimately not to be found in politics, programs, or charismatic leaders. Our hope cannot be in the next election as important as it is.
Please understand that Gov. Romney can’t save us and neither can President Obama. Legislation alone can’t turn things around. We must be turned around. Simply returning to a full capitalistic system or lowering taxes won’t save us either, but God can. Nineveh repented and God granted them another hundred years. They turned around in three days. There is hope.
I know that we are trained to rely on government to solve all our problems. We call on Washington before we call on God. Personally, I don’t think there is any hope for tomorrow unless our country returns to God today. The Bible teaches this is true. History proves this is true. The question is what will we do? How will we respond? I pray that God grants us revival and reformation. I pray to that end and hope you will too. I know of no other answer for our time.
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land (II Chronicles 7: 4 KJV)

 Budget Meeting     10-23-2012


          Another three hour meeting, another night of watching the Lebanon Leader be an arrogant, rude, and disrespectful fool.  Of course Dougy-Boy was his usual, whipping-boy self as well. Benson says " jump", Dougy says," how high?".  I am still amazed at the change in Brucey since he realized that Benson was not about to follow the rules or include him in any decisions. For the moment, Brucey is on the side of what's right. I offer no guarantee as to how long this will go on, and if Benson goes, I'm sure Brucey will return to his old self, but for NOW at least, I am enjoying this new Bruce. It's akin to having a brand-new board member you've never met before, but find refreshingly fair. WIEEEERD.

         The evening had two highlights; 1) The Town Clerk budget and Deputy Clerk necessity, and 2) The Court Budget and full-time clerk necessity.  Colleen gave a very professional and complete presentation of the duties she is responsible for, many of which are duties that have been added to her list of responsibilities in just the past two or three years. With the state cutting their budget and laying people off, the extra work has trickled down to town clerks. NO clerk, in any town, could possibly perform all the duties required of them without help. It is NOT possible. 

         Lots of people have said things to me about Barb Felter running the clerk's office on her own, with no assistant and without being in the office 5 days a week. Yup, Barb did a terrific job as clerk for many years, but that was a long time ago and things have changed a LOT.  The mandates, the changing protocols, the extra paperwork, and a host of other things, have made the job a two-person task. Especially when you consider the jobs the clerks are doing today that belong in the hands of other employees and specific departments. Colleen had a valid case, and even offered to accept a part-time clerk if there was no other way to compromise, even though a part-timer is not enough.

       The Czar was adamant that a Deputy Clerk is not needed and for the second time, I personally heard him tell Colleen to be "more efficient".  I was biting my tongue, because I wanted to tell him to try doing the job all alone and manage to keep up with the duties. I am TRYING to not say any more than necessary at the meetings, as talking to these people is like trying to saddle a porcupine. Not only did the Czar give Colleen a hard time, he was outright disrespectful to her, and to members of the public who repeatedly attempted to ask questions. 

       This was a Budget Workshop, an OPEN MEETING of the townspeople who PAY these costs. Yet Benson was impatient , intolerant and plain old NASTY to the public, refusing to let them speak or question, as USUAL. Now let me get this said right now; I think very highly of Jeff Winestock, and this is no reflection on HIM, understood?  Okay, that being said, Jeff is the ONLY person that the Czar allows to speak at meetings, and I have to wonder why that is. This is true in Town Board meetings when it is not Privilege of the Floor or anything to do with the Highway Dept., and it was true tonight at the budget meeting.  Is it possible, that the Czar is actually intimidated by Jeff's blunt honesty?  Hmmm.

        Gail Heinsohn also conducted herself poorly tonight. Kevin Smith tried to ask a couple of questions and was rudely ignored or hushed by the board, mostly by Benson. Each time Kevin tried to speak, Heinsohn tossed her hands in the air and sighed loudly enough for the entire room to hear. She is still pouting over the fact that Kevin found out how she operates and no longer defends her or considers her trustworthy, as he once did. 

     In any case, Benson was getting hot under the collar, and several times, he threatened to end the meeting. He just CRUMBLES when met with opposition. I cannot BELIEVE how alike he and Obama are, it is uncanny! They are both tyrannical, narcissistic and spoiled little babies, all at the same time.  Nauseating!  The Town Clerk budget and assistant were  tabled for the night. Benson was losing, and THAT is something he cannot and will not accept. Can you see the strong similarities among Benson,Clark and Obama?  WOW! Speaking of Dougy-Boy, he gave me his hateful stare again tonight. I stared back. 

         HE had the absolute NERVE to say that labor and laborers needed to be cut as they had already cut everywhere else they could, including the councilmen taking cuts to their own stipends. He stated that the "LOVE they get from the public is their compensation". THIS is where he gave me his hate-stare. LOLOL!!  Geez, talk about immature! 

       The court budget was next, and all court employees were present. Justice Byrne spoke for a time, outlining the needs and changes in the court at present. She stated that the violent crimes in Lebanon have more than DOUBLED in the past year! Interesting. I have to wonder WHY? She also said that Orders of Protection have sky-rocketed!  It did get a tad heated when the Czar was confronted with the cutting of paychecks, and the court clerk argued her case against the $2500.00 Benson claims she owes the town for health insurance. Her argument was a good one, as she stated that had she been told that she would be expected to make retroactive payments, she would have chosen alternate health care! 

         No one brought up the issue of Benson taking $350.00 from her paycheck without first discussing it with her and without benefit of board involvement. That will be addressed at another time, count on it. Benson was angry AGAIN, and stated that he refused to comment on the clerk's issues in an open forum, and that he considered it a "Personnel Matter' that should be discussed in Executive Session. His opinion was not shared by the clerk or anyone ELSE in the room, and the talk continued with Benson refusing to comment. Both Justices agreed to a $300.00 pay cut, if that money could be used for the clerk to stay full-time. Justice Nevers actually made the comment that it was fine with HIM, because, "That's just three pulls on the slot machine for ME!".  Yes, he actually SAID that! 

        The court was granted their requests. I feel that Colleen will have a much more difficult time, as the Czar has made NO bones about the fact that he wants her OUT of the town hall job. She knows too much for his comfort.  Benson also mentioned several times that he is glad he keeps time records for all town employees and officials. Yet when asked how many hours HE puts in at the town hall, he again avoided answering and threatened to end the meeting.  He was also asked about his "Confidential Secretary" and the rather large amount of compensation allotted for her or him. Can't tell you which, as this person is a big secret!  Since WHEN, do little town supervisors have Confidential Secretaries?  Isn't that a right reserved for Supreme Court Judges?  Just who does this Czar think he IS? We are expected to pay a person that we are not allowed to see or know the identity of? I don't THINK SO!

        The library thing came up again, briefly. A local woman did a full year of research into that matter, and a few months ago, passed the results of her work on to me. I made the mistake of "assuming" that her research was factual , as she is a smart, honest, capable person. I passed her research results on to you, the readers. Her report stated that Kinderhook Library received the next highest grant, after New Lebanon, which it does. However, she had it reported as $22,000.00, when in fact, it is $122,000.00. Not that it matters in the long run, Kinderhook is much larger than Lebanon, has more residents, and is a very wealthy town. Lebanon can not be compared. $135 0r 36 thousand dollars to this little library with its 6 parking spaces, is NOT acceptable, period. 

       Another piece of her report that was incorrect, was the claim that only the Library Board could reduce the amount of the grant. The Czar DID attempt to get them to agree to a reduction and they said NO. However, the FACT is, that we CAN go over their heads and get the reduction through a referendum vote of the people of New Lebanon. THAT, is very GOOD news, especially since Councilman Larabee said tonight, that there WILL be a referendum!  In the meantime, we will get the budget report from the library and see exactly where the money is being spent and on WHAT. The Town Board, minus Dougy, as he is on the Library board and must abstain, can then see how much money the library actually NEEDS to operate.  Whatever is left over, can be applied to the general fund and the cemetery. As it SHOULD be.  

      If our town coffers are as empty as the Czar claims they are, we need to cut the Fluff, like cello concerts at the library for the elite progressives. I have said it a hundred times before, Lebanon is NOT Lenox or Stockbridge, and it never will be. Why would we WANT it to be? Ewww. 

     So, JJ the numbers hater attended a budget meeting and it was not a good time. It was more of the same old, same old, with all the bias and all the disrespect and all the donkey dung of every town board meeting. Ya know, Benson actually made the statement tonight, that the rules and codes have been ignored for far too long! WHAT?!?!?  Look who's calling the kettle black! He and Clark have violated every rule and code in the book and CONTINUE to do so. Double-Standard, like all Libs.

The Final Debate Said it ALL



   Liberals Call for Ann Romney's Death!

Liberalism: An ideology of rage and hate

Union protesters carried signs comparing Gov. Walker to Hitler
Union protesters carried signs comparing Gov. Walker to Hitler



One thing has become crystal clear in the last few days; Liberalism is an ideology of hate.
After the Tucson shootings that left Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords fighting for her life, liberals twisted themselves into pretzels trying to convince Americans that “rhetoric” from conservatives was the culprit.
Almost immediately after the shootings, liberals blamed Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin, the Tea Party and cross-hairs.
At a memorial that looked more like a campaign rally, President Obama said Americans should “…listen to each other more carefully, to sharpen our instincts for empathy, and remind ourselves of all the ways our hopes and dreams are bound together…”
Nevertheless, hardcore leftists continued their hate speech against conservatives.
Since the beginning of the Wisconsin Insurrection, Americans have seen the insane rage of the left, and it has not been pretty.
Consider the following examples:
A Massachusetts Democrat – an elected official, no less – encouraged union activists to “get bloody when necessary.”
Another elected Democrat compared Governor Scott Walker to a dictator.
Left wing bloggers and media personalities got into the act as well.
Liberal hate-talker Mike Papantonio complained elderly Tea Party activists weren’t dying fast enough.
A blogger writing for the radical left wing site Daily Kos compared the Governor to a southern slave holder.
Signs carried by union activists showed crosshairs superimposed on Gov. Walker’s face. Remember the furor over crosshairs used by Sarah Palin’s political action committee? We were supposed to believe the very presence of the graphic was enough to send people into uncontrolled fits of rage – perhaps enough to make them grab a gun and kill people.
But nothing was said about the use of the crosshair on Governor Scott Walker.
The result of all this hate?
Some took to the social networking site Twitter to call for the assassination of Governor Scott Walker.
Tabitha Hale, a young 5 foot 1 inch female employee of FreedomWorks, was assaulted by a union thug in Washington, D.C.
Another union thug threatened a Rhode Island cameraman with homosexual rape in very graphic terms.
Tea Party activist was attacked by an unhinged union thug at a protest in Sacramento.
Breitbart.tv has video of a union activist claiming New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is a terrorist who would shoot workers.
But yet, the Tea Party is called violent and racist.
Politico reports that the attacks and threats against Walker did not go unnoticed by fellow Republican Mitch Daniels:
“This whole thing with bulls-eyes, people talking about assassinations — the hate speech here is really being directed at [Walker],” Daniels said.
In a recent column, Michelle Malkin documents what she calls the “vulgar, racist, sexist, homophobic rage of the Left.”
Malkin explains:
Yes, the tea party movement is responsible — for sending these liberal goons into an insane rage, that is. After enduring two years of false smears as sexist, racist, homophobic barbarians, it is grassroots conservatives and taxpayer advocates who have been ceaselessly subjected to rhetorical projectile vomit. It is Obama’s rank-and-file “community organizers” on the streets fomenting the hate against their political enemies. Not the other way around.
Those of us who follow current political events from a conservative point of view are not really surprised by the level of vitriol from the left – we have seen it for years.
But lately, it seems the more radical left has gone completely berserk, openly calling for violence and revolution.
While interviewing liberal cartoonist Ted Rall shortly after the November election, MSNBC host Dylan Ratigan said:
"Are things in our country so bad that it might actually be time for a revolution?" Ratigan asked. "The answer obviously is yes," he added, and "the only question is how to do it."
Liberals like to say they want “dialogue” and “civil rhetoric” but they show time and again they are incapable of civil dialogue. For them, bipartisanship means you must agree with them.
If you don’t, you’re labeled a racist, homophobic bigot, or worse.
It is only a matter of time before one of these unhinged lunatics pulls a gun and commits a crime similar to the Tucson massacre.
Until liberals practice what they preach, they have absolutely no credibility on the issue of rhetoric.


========================================================================================

       

If you watched the debate , you've got to be shaking your head in disgust at President Obama's vision for America's future.

It wasn't just the debate. The truth is that the last four years have been a foreign policy disaster: 

  • Obama's lies surrounding Libya have put America is a position of extraordinary weakness.
  • The New York Times reports that the administration has agreed to negotiations with Iran, a dangerous nation whose stated purpose is to rid the world of Israel.
  • Just months ago, Obama was overheard telling Russia's president that he would have more "flexibility" on nuclear weapons if he were re-elected.
As you and I both heard last night and have seen for the past four years, a second term for President Obama and his liberal colleagues means a fundamentally weaker America. Keeping the Senate, particularly, it means the destruction of American sovereignty as a hyper-liberal Senate paired with a lame-duck President pursue dangerous policies like the Law of the Sea and UN Arms Trade treaties that make America subservient to international law and violate our constitutional liberties. We will not stand for this.

President Declares War On Seniors With ObamaCare Ploys And Medicare Plans

President Obama has been attacking Republicans on Medicare, claiming that they will end Medicare as we know it. Yet, the President’s health care reform law has put in place measures that assure that Medicare as we know it will no longer be available for seniors in the very near future. As a physician, I believe seniors should know what those changes are.

First, the Affordable Care Act – or as the president likes to refer to it, ObamaCare – cuts $716 billion out of Medicare to pay for ObamaCare.  The president claims that seniors do not need to worry because this massive cut does not change what Medicare recipients are eligible for.

While that is technically true, it is also profoundly misleading.

President Obama pays for this cut by dramatically decreasing reimbursements to physicians and hospitals, reimbursements that in many cases are already below cost. As a result, many physicians will no longer be able to care for Medicare patients because of prohibitively low reimbursement rates. How does it benefit someone to have Medicare coverage if you cannot find a physician to care for you? Further, reimbursements to hospitals for procedures will be so low that many will no longer be able to provide many services. This is back-door rationing.

Second, approximately $200 billion has been eliminated from the popular Medicare Advantage program which gives seniors choice in how they receive their Medicare benefits.

Those cuts were supposed to take place several months ago, but theservices were conveniently extended until after the election, thanks to a “pilot program” from the department of Health and Human Services. After the election, many will lose the option to be in Medicare Advantage. “If you like your health insurance, you can keep it.” Really?

Third, the Independent Payment Advisory Board, or IPAB is a panel of 15 unelected, unaccountable bureaucrats who are charged with cutting the growth of Medicare spending. The cuts they make will be deep. The recommendations of this board are law and can only be overturned by a supermajority of Congress, something which almost never happens. The only tool IPAB has to reduce spending is to further cut reimbursements to hospitals and physicians. So when services are no longer available to seniors, legislators will simply say, “It’s out of our hands – it’s IPAB’s doing!”

Fourth, President Obama is preparing to require drug companies to pay a rebate to the federal government for prescription drugs sold through the popular Medicare Part D. This prescription drug program utilizes market competition to get the best drug prices for seniors. Medicare Part D has been so successful that the costs are 40% below their estimate when the plan was passed into law. The average monthly beneficiary premium for Part D coverage is about $30 in 2012, virtually unchanged from 2011, and far below the $56 originally forecast.

The proposed rebate tax would force some drug companies out of the program, resulting in decreased competition and increased cost that would simply be passed on to seniors. Douglass Holtz-Eakin, the former director of the Congressional Budget Office, estimates that this tax would increase premiums up to 40%, as well as increase annual out-of-pocket costs an average of $200 for as many as 17 million seniors.

So why would President Obama take these actions that are clearly detrimental to seniors? To answer that question, consider the philosophy embraced by the architects of the President’s health care law.

One of the chief architects of the law is Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, a bioethicist. He was appointed as a health policy advisor at the Office of Management and Budget and a member of the Federal Council on Comparative Effectiveness Research. Dr. Emanuel has been critical of the Hippocratic Oath (Journal of the American Medical Association, June 18, 2008), claiming that adherence to it led to the overuse of resources as a result of a physician’s sense of obligation to “help the sick to the best of my ability and judgment as an imperative to do everything for the patient regardless of cost or effect on others.”

Alternatively, Dr. Emanuel has advocated a “complete lives system” in which scarce resources can be allocated. In this system, patients between age 15 and 40 get the most care, while the very young and the elderly have a lower chance of intervention; the young because we have not “invested” in them as yet, and the elderly because there will be less “return on investment” (Lancet, Jan 31, 2009).

As a physician, I have taken an oath to do everything in my power to promote the health and well-being of my patients. I, and many of my colleagues, will refuse to practice medicine if the government starts making decisions that should be reserved to patients and their physicians.

We are at a crossroads in American medicine. We will either accept a top-down, central command-and-control model of medicine as embodied in ObamaCare, or we will fight to restore the best health care system in the world.

Dogs Bark, Snakes Wiggle, Liberals LIE!               10-25-2012


                    Why do people emigrate to America from other countries? Think about that for a minute. If things are SOOOO great in Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and the Far East, in Russia and Africa, WHY are they all coming HERE?  Gee, do you think maybe it has a little something to do with FREEDOM and OPPORTUNITY? Could it be that HERE in America, anyone who is willing to assimilate and get off the couch, can have the Good Things in life?  This applies to lazy Americans every bit as much as it does to immigrants.  Even with the debt and the horrible damage Obama has caused to our economy, no one in America needs to be hungry or homeless if they choose NOT to be.

                   In America, there has never been oppression, or tyranny, or Ethnic Cleansing, or disrespect for Constitutional Rights and Protections. We have the best medical care, the best technology, the best military, and at one time, we HAD the best schools. People all over the world, dream of having all that Americans have. So, if America becomes just another Socialist country with a government that does our thinking for us and doles out the things we need to exist according to THEIR perception of that need, if our rights and freedoms are removed, our medical care regulated by non-medical government employees, if we are dis-armed, etc.,etc., where will the oppressed run to? Where will the Safe Haven BE? 

                  There will BE no safe haven. America is the last , great hope of and for the world. In my heart, I do not believe that we will ever again see the America we once knew, pre-1960. Our "Melting-Pot" society has diluted our traditions, our faith, our freedoms. Traditional Constitutionalists like myself are now a minority, and an unpopular one at that. Conservative Christians are the most hated people in the world today. We are the Right-Fighters in a world of WRONG, and every time God is pushed out of another school or public building, the WRONG gets stronger and the disease of Liberalism spreads. 

                  I have a friend who loves to say, "If I were King..." , and then goes on to talk about all the things he would change. It's hysterical sometimes, as he means it to be, but it also very sad. He is in his early 70s now, and he remembers things that I do not, being 20 years younger. When he reminisces about his childhood and the way things were back then, it is sometimes heartbreaking. How have we become so sinful, so selfish and so hateful in so little time? Liberalism.  See, the Left is far more organized than the right, because the Left wants what they want, and will stop at nothing to get it. The Right, is much more moral and respectful, and not given to loud outbursts and whiny demonstrations . We do not Occupy public property and defecate on police cars. Nor do we dress in the clothing of the opposite sex and march in parades with rainbow tee shirts on that we got free from Home Depot, the greatest champion of the Gay Pride Movement.

                 Conservatives do not attack the beliefs of others, just their actions. We hate what people DO, but the left hates who people ARE or are NOT. The right believes in equal rights, as long as they are applied EQUALLY. WE feel that anyone who is willing to obey the laws, take advantage of education, work for their own food and family support, and respect the rights of others, deserves all the good things they can gain. What we do NOT believe, is that illegal immigrants, criminals, and citizens that make Welfare a lifestyle, should receive help from the taxpayers who DO the right things. WE believe that every human being has a right to choose whom they will love and spend their lives with and not be persecuted for that choice, but that marriage is a spiritual joining of one man and one woman according to the Word of God. 

           Liberals on the other hand, feel that gay marriage is a right, even though they rarely believe in God or His Word, they still want the benefit of "HOLY MATRIMONY". Does that make SENSE?  They want to have their cake and eat it too. Liberals want everyone to have their every desire, even if they are not willing to go to school or work for their money, but extend their hands to the taxpayers for the support of their families and themselves. The Left wants the government to "Take Care of Everyone" and for all people to be equal, as long as THEY do not have to pay for it. It does not matter to them that relying on the government, gives the government ALL the power, ALL the control. As they protest and whine about one person having too much and another not having enough, they fail to walk the walk. They fail to CARE about whom they have hurt and will hurt, the negative changes their selfishness and anti-Americanism will bring down upon the very individuals they profess to care so much about! 

       So Brain-Dead are the Liberals, that they do not understand that the freedoms they cause us to lose, are THEIR freedoms too!  They seem oblivious to the fact that a Socialist America will affect THEIR lives in the same way it will affect us all. The only people who will will benefit from Socialism are the high-ranking officials and the most undesirable humans among us. The lazy, the losers, the criminals, the amoral, the illegals, the Godless, and the downright evil. They are the ones who will benefit, and as the workers and the law-abiding population gets tired of working to support the deadbeats, they will eventually STOP working. Then who pays the bills? Liberals do not see this, nor do they care, as they are all in denial.

       It takes less than an hour to read up on the failure of Socialism everywhere it has been tried. Liberals don't want to know, so they don't bother to research. What Liberals DO know, is that their hero, B. Hussein Obama, is a liar, a Muslim, a narcissist, and a Marxist, and they do not care. The proof is everywhere, yet they turn a blind eye to it and wear their mis-spelled "FORWARD" tee shirts and put Obama-Biden signs on their lawns.  Sheep. The blind leading the blind. Political Zombies. 

        A dear friend sent me an email the other day with only ONE sentence in it, but it was  exactly what I needed, WHEN I needed it. It said, "JJ, remember that no matter how this election turns out, GOD is still on the Throne".  How did he know I was at my breaking point and needed those words and that solace? We hadn't talked in a couple of weeks. He knew, because he is a Christian and a friend, and he cared enough to notice that I had a spiritual need. I saw him this evening, and I thanked him for those words.  Sometimes, just knowing that I am not alone in my grief for my country, is enough to restore me. I hope everyone has friends like that, and I WISH everyone had a relationship with God, but that is not realistic in today's world. Few folks can see beyond their own noses and their own needs. Others do not matter. 

        I have another friend that is not at all spiritual. She blames God for everything that goes wrong in her life and the lives of her loved ones. Yet she doesn't give God anything of herself, not even a few minutes of her time. If he does not exist for her when she is NOT in need, how can she expect Him to BE there for her when she IS? How can anyone? America has pushed God aside and away for many decades now, then we wonder why we are in the mess we see today? 

2Chronicles 7:14

          If My People which are called by My name shall humble themselves and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from Heaven, and will forgive their sin, and I WILL heal their land. 

                          God Bless.     JJ

Maybe Gloria Allred Should Work to Get Obama’s College Records Released


Obama delegate Gloria Allred is trying to dig up dirt on Mitt Romney in order to sabotage his presidential election. The Romney campaign has the right attitude: “Whatever.”

“Robert Jones, an attorney at the Boston law firm of Ropes & Gray, who is representing Romney in this matter told TIME in a statement, ‘This is a decades-old divorce case in which Mitt Romney provided testimony as to the value of a company. He has no objection to letting the public see that testimony.’”

I have to give the Romney people credit. They are trying to stay presidential. There’s a story circulating that when Obama was a college student he used and sold cocaine. The story was shopped around. The Romney people were approached. They declined to get involved. Good for them.

I want to win an election on principles not on “the politics of personal destruction,” especially when a story is more than 20-years old.

While I’m not a birther, I do wonder why President Obama has not released his college records. They are not sealed. Colleges and universities cannot release a student’s transcripts unless the student gives his or her permission. The Obama administration, at least Democratic surrogates like Harry Reid, have been pressuring Mitt Romney to release a decade of federal tax returns even. Gloria, why don’t you work to try and get Sen. Reid to release his tax returns so we can see how he became a multimillionaire?

But back to President Obama. There are students at Columbia University who don’t recall him as a student. Consider thisstatement from Wayne Allyn Root who graduated the same year as Barack Obama, and even shared the same major as the future president.

“I was a pretty connected guy. I knew a lot of people. I knew pretty much everyone, I thought, in the Political Science Department. I never met him. I never saw him. I never heard of him. No one that I know at Columbia ever met him, ever heard of him or ever saw him. It’s strange. It’s mysterious. It doesn’t mean he didn’t go there, by the way. I’m sure he went there, but he was probably busy smoking pot and attending socialist meetings. What can I tell you?”

Surely Gloria could dig into Root’s assertion to find out if it’s true. The problem is, Allred is an Obama surrogate. She’s a DNC delegate and partisan Democrat. She attended the “30 Days to Victory” Obama fundraiser at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles on October 7th of this year. She’s not concerned about justice for her climates; she’s all about her very liberal worldview.

===================================================================






Now we're witnessing one of the closest presidential races in history. What "October surprise" could change its outcome?

I'm not sure what would sway America's voters, but I know what God seeks in our next president and in every other leader as well. In what  Scripture calls "the last words of David," the king stated: "The God of Israel spoke, the Rock of Israel said to me: 'When one rules over men in righteousness, when he rules in the fear of God, he is like the light of morning at sunrise on a cloudless morning, like the brightness after rain that brings the grass from the earth'" (2 Samuel 23:1, 3-4). God is looking for men and women of personal "righteousness," people who lead "in the fear of God." Such leaders bring morning after night and sunshine after rain.

In these dark and stormy days, America needs our next president to be such a man. And our nation needs America's Christians to exhibit such character as well. Would you join me this morning in praying for both?

Finally Someone Is Talking About Obama’s Imperial Presidency


Many conservative writers like myself, have been commenting on Obama’s continual abuse of power by using executive orders to illegally bypass Congress. He acts as if he is above the law like an imperial monarch. In fact, I predict if he wins re-election in two weeks that he will become an imperial dictator and free America will be no more.

Virtually none of the mainstream media have reported on this, but that’s expected since they’re in bed with the Obama and his liberal entourage to begin with. What is so frustrating is that many conservatives have ignored or refused to say anything about Obama’s imperial ways, but that just may be changing.

Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA) House Majority Leader has just released a scathing 8,000 page report detailing Obama’s establishment of an imperial presidency. In his release, Cantor says that the economy and individual prosperity is being hindered by the Obama administration’s overt lack of respect for the law. Part of Cantor’s statement reads:

“Property rights and rule of law are essential for the proper and efficient functioning of society and the economy.”

“When ‘laws’ are created without going through Congress; when laws are selectively executed; when an administration intervenes into the normal judicial process and diminishes an individual’s property rights; and when the normal regulatory process is circumvented, the rule of law is eroded.”

“While administrations of both political parties have been known to test the bounds of the limits of their power, the breadth of the breakdown in the rule of law in recent years has reached new levels.”

The report cites over forty instances where the Obama White House has demonstrated its lack of respect for the law. Some of the items on the list include:

  • Ignoring Advice & Consent
  • Creating laws outside of the Congressional process
  • Ignoring the Plain Letter of the Law
  • Failing to Faithfully Execute the Law
  • Circumventing the Normal Regulatory Process
  • Government By Waiver
  • Creating New Programs Not Authorized by Congress

Cantor concludes by writing:

“There is no excuse for this continuous disregard of legislative authority and the Constitutionally-required separation of powers.”

“This is no way to govern. The President has set a precedent that even his supporters should find troubling. . . . The Founding Fathers wisely gave the President many powers, but making law was not one of them.”

Stand up and cheer and Eric Cantor, but what is anyone going to do about it? They’ve allowed Obama to get away with all of this since he first took office. The Justice Department won’t do anything about it because they have been Obama’s accomplice from the very beginning. Congress won’t do anything with the election this close. Even if the House were to impeach Obama, the Democratic controlled Senate would not act upon it.

Our hope lies in the election on November 6 and that Romney will win. But with Obama’s flagrant disregard for the law and Constitution, who knows what further mayhem he’ll try to create in the two and half months between election day and Romney being sworn in as the next President of the United States. I wouldn’t put anything past Obama at this point.

The Most Important Article I Have Ever Written


No, the title of this piece is not intended merely to be an attention-grabber. I really, really mean it. I have written a lot of things over the years, and I have felt (and continue to feel) very strongly about a lot of things. But as we enter the very final stretch of the 2012 Presidential election, I have to make one last stab at articulating the crucial nature of voting Barack Obama out of office. The reality of our two-party system means that if my last sentence is correct (and it is), then so is this sentence: It is of dire significance that we vote FOR Gov. Mitt Romney.

I am not writing this piece for those on the far left. I hope many of you will stay home and sit this election out, as you surely must be very disappointed with your President, who has not closed Gitmo, who has ordered 10x the drone attacks that President Bush ever ordered, who orchestrated the assassination of a man (Osama bin Laden) without a trial, who extended all of the Bush tax cuts for two years when he had the majority in both chambers, who passed health care legislation that was stripped of the public option, who never even proposed immigration reform to the Congress, who spent 275 days of his Presidency opposed to gay marriage, who has still not ended the war in Afghanistan, who has never passed a budget (or received a vote for one) … That’s right – as contemptible as I find the President to be, I can only imagine what you far leftists must think. Yikes. What a disappointment. And if it isn’t, what a bunch of hypocrites and posers you are.

I am also not writing this piece for folks like me on the right. We know that class warfare is a recipe for failure. We know that Obama loathes the principles that have made America great. We know that his Supreme Court appointments have been an utter embarrassment. We are well aware of the path to fiscal ruin this President has our country on. There is no need to convince you of his disdain for an American footprint in the world. We know the failures of his stated energy policies. We know that he views the tax code as a means of forcing his version of social justice upon society. We have seen the laughingstock appointments he has made in Steven Chu, Eric Holder, Van Jones, and countless others. And most importantly, we know the doom for America that his signature legislation represents – the atrocity that is ObamaCare. We conservatives do not need to be talked into fearing an Obama re-election. In fact, I have been very restrained in keeping this paragraph short.

This article is, instead, for those who are just simply not enthused about voting for Mitt Romney. You may not be thrilled with the idea of voting for Barack Obama, and in fact, you may be repulsed by it. However, for any number of reasons, you feel uncomfortable with a vote for Romney, and are considering sitting this one out or voting for a third-party candidate. It could be the Mormonism of Gov. Romney you do not like, or it could be his various position changes over the years (most notably on abortion). Particularly in states like Nevada, Ohio, Colorado, and Wisconsin, your non-vote for Romney could very well put Obama back in the White House for an additional four years. You are the target audience of this article.

I am not going to defend every single piece of Mitt Romney’s record. I have spent a little time with the Governor over the last few years, and I have found him to be an extremely bright and knowledgeable man, but I would not say that ideological conservatism runs through his veins. I doubt he grew up reading Hayek, Kirk, and Buckley. For those of you who are devout evangelicals or Roman Catholics, you are well aware of the differences in his religious viewpoint from yours. He has some stinker votes out there, and he has changed his position on a couple key issues over the years. It is not possible for me to claim he is a perfect man, or a perfect candidate. But I will suggest to you that the negativity some feel towards him is perhaps misguided …

The most common objection lodged against him is his reputation as a “moderate” when he governed the state of Massachusetts. When a Republican Governor is elected head of Ted Kennedy’s state, and asked to serve over an 82% Democratic legislature, I would suggest to you that a little grace and understanding are in order. If you evaluate each and every action he took as the Governor of that state, you will find (as I did) that he was constantly moving his state to the right, even if it never went as far right as you and I may prefer. He is a true incrementalist, and he moved the ball in the right direction, which I believe is what we elect leaders to do.

I would spend more time on the abortion flip-flop except for the fact that I have no doubt that his “pretend position” was when he was pro-choice, not when he became pro-life again. It is inconceivable that he and his devout Roman Catholic pro-life Vice-Presidential selection, Paul Ryan, would select judges who set the pro-life cause back. I have been wrong on issues in the past, and so have you. I encourage you not to hold it against a candidate that before he was right on an issue, he once was wrong. That is backwards thinking, is it not?

I have written in the past of the very limited things a President can actually do. He cannot restore the size of government to the “right size” many of us wish it to be. He can, though, work diligently and intelligently to get the right things done. I would suggest that some of those crying needs of the hour are exactly what Romney will do, and do phenomenally well. He will work with Congress to reform (but not perfect) the tax code. He will reverse the direction of the budget deficit, even if he will not solve it entirely.

The direction he will take the fiscal state of our country vs. Obama is the most important issue in this election. He will flatten the tax rates, which undeniably spurs economic growth, all the while cleaning up many of the silly and price-distorting deductions that have to be reformed (I learned this from Obama’s former economic czar, Christina Romer, by the way). He will assemble a team of competent cabinet members, as he has done his entire career (do any of Romney’s critics want to criticize his eye for talent at Bain Capital, or in Salt Lake City, or in the Governor’s mansion?). Obama has filled his cabinet with cronies, fools, and extremists. This distinction alone is enough to show up and vote.

I do not believe we will run a budget surplus in four years, and I do not believe abortion will be criminalized at the end of Romney’s first term. What I do believe is this: At this time, at this point in history, in this present set of circumstances, God has seen fit to give us a clear and simple choice between a radical, unqualified, dishonest wretch of a President named Barack Obama, and a competent, managerial, efficient, intelligent, decent man named Mitt Romney. Mitt Romney will be a tool God uses to move the ball down the field.

Romney did not have to choose the extraordinary Paul Ryan as his running mate, and in fact took great political risk in doing so. Gov. Romney is a problem-solver in a country filled with problems. He is not a quintessential conservative Libertarian kind of guy, but he is the antidote we have to the Ivy League radicalism of Barack Obama. He is the alternative to four more years of $1 trillion+ deficits and an utter blindness to the train wreck our entitlement system represents. He has the proven ability to work with other people to accomplish something, as opposed to the community organizer we have in office now who has never so much as led a school sports team, let alone a business, a state, or an organization.

I am not writing because Mitt Romney is perfect. I am writing because he is good enough. And I am writing because Barack Obama is the biggest disaster our country has faced as a mature country. If you worry about the direction of the Supreme Court, and you worry about the size of our government relative to GDP, and you worry about confidence in the business community coming back so as to spur economic growth, then you have a man to vote for who will advance your cause(s) – Mitt Romney. You also have a man to vote against who represents the worst of all possible worlds – Barack Obama.

Please, do not sit this one out. Our country – the last, best hope on earth – needs your vote. I have every confidence in the world that we will be pleased we voted for Mitt Romney – every confidence in the world. Share as you wish. And I will see you at the polls.

No Laughing Matter

October 25, 2012 by Ben Crystal
No Laughing Matter
PHOTOS.COM
All right, the “horses and bayonets” meme sweeping the Internet like one of those cat-doing-something-adorable pictures actually made me laugh. And the “ships that go underwater” Facebook fad is pretty damned funny, as well. Hell, I even considered the “binders full of” meme that dogged Mitt Romney last week worth at least a grin. Hey, I joke as much as the next pundit. Actually, the next pundit is Bob Livingston; so I joke a great deal more than the next pundit. But I don’t let the laughter distract me from the bigger picture.
I’m well aware that Barack Obama knows what a submarine is. Well, I’m fairly sure. Come to think of it, perhaps we should move along. But lost in the snickering was the fact that Obama was trying to belittle Romney’s expertise in the foreign-affairs arena. And, in doing so, Obama was also trying a little too hard to distract us from the very real failures that have defined his own tenure.
To quote the cool kids: “You got jokes, Mr. President?” I’m not really laughing. Obama’s attempts to change the narrative on what happened in Benghazi, Libya, feature more plot twists than a M. Night Shyamalan film festival. I’ve noticed Chris Matthews at the Democrat Channel is back to claiming a crappy YouTube video is responsible for the brutal murders of Ambassador Chris Stevens and his three fellow innocent victims. How many versions have they offered? Seven? I’m just waiting for the Huffington Post inevitable banner headline:
NEW DETAILS EMERGE ON BENGHAZI — COLONEL MUSTARD SOUGHT FOR QUESTIONING
Retired officer rumored Romney bundler; Authorities claim he did it in the conservatory with a B-40
During Monday’s debate, Romney stated: “Is al-Qaida on the run? No.” Liberals lit up the blogosphere with outrage over what they characterized as Romney’s complete lack of awareness. Most took to chest-thumping over the execution of Osama bin Laden by SEAL Team 6. And perhaps Romney ismistaken; al-Qaida is indeed on the run. Unfortunately, it’s running directly toward and over our people.
Obama is currently running an ad that claims he dropped the curtain on “a decade of war which has cost us dearly.” Of course, he’s referring to our exit from the Iraqi theater. But while he conjures up images of himself surrounded by olive branch-toting doves, our servicemen and servicewomen continue to face ultimate sacrifice in Afghanistan. And the enemy there has become even less predictable and more sinister than ever, likely in response to perceived weakness. To paint himself as worthy of that Nobel Peace Prize wasted on him a few years back, Obama is not only brushing aside the fires of Benghazi, he’s turning his back on the thousands of flag-draped coffins he claims to meet at airports in between fundraisers and golf outings.
Obama’s reaction to increasing hot air from the Islamofascists who own Iran  — including both their bellicosity toward Israel and their brazen attempts at loading their missiles with “the good stuff” — is about as funny as a Bill Maher therapy session, albeit with less rancor toward the ladies. As Romney pointed out during the debate, “Iran is four years closer to a nuclear bomb.” Nuclear bombs are seldom funny. Nuclear bombs wielded by guys whose idea of kicking back involves a nice brick of C-4 and “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion” on Blu-ray Disc are scarier than a night with that thing the TV tells me used to be Cher.
I’m not suggesting we start kicking in doors worldwide, looking to aerate the cranium of every two-bit jihadi, narcoterrorist and/or tin-pot dictator; although, I wouldn’t mind if they all simultaneously contracted terminal cases of lead poisoning. But as much as Obama seems to want to make jokes when he’s not out on his worldwide “apology tour” and as much as I enjoy making jokes about his endless parade of disgraces, Obama’s term has been less “funny ha-ha” and more “funny pile of corpses.”
We are the United States of America. We get to deal from a position of strength. We don’t forget the names of our soldiers, sailors and Marines — or those of our border agents and ambassadors. And that’s no joke, Mr. President.

Voter Machine in Las Vegas Auto-Checking Obama

October 24, 2012 at 5:00 am

PolitiChicks.tv has just received confirmation that a voter in Las Vegas tried voting for Governor Mitt Romney but the machine automatically checked “Obama” multiple times instead.
Our source said:
“Yesterday I went to an early voting site at Centennial Center in Las Vegas, NV. I went with my 19 year old son who was a first-time voter. I went to an open machine and inserted my card. When the selections came up, all of the candidate pairings were listed and I touched the box for Romney/Ryan. The checkmark appeared next to President Obama’s name. I touched the check mark removing it and touched the box next to Romney’s name again. Again, the checkmark appeared next to Obama. I motioned for an observer to come over and showed him. I touched the mark next to Obama, removing it and again touched Romney’s name. The checkmark appeared next to Obama. At this point, the gentleman next to me was looking over my partition to see. I touched the checkmark, again removing it from Obama’s name and selected Romney. The checkmark appeared next to Romney. I double-checked the paper ballot to ensure that Romney was indeed selected and cast my ballot. I didn’t make a fuss but have called our local election department only to get recordings. I also wrote an email to the Clark County Election Department about the incident. My son said that he had no issues casting his ballot.”
I called the Las Vegas GOP office but haven’t gotten a response from anyone  about this yet.
Please folks, check and re-check your ballots before turning them in. A similar case was reported earlier today in North Carolina.

The Terrifying Line in Obama's Speech That Everyone Missed


Posted 09/07/2012 07:03 PM ET
His Agenda: President Obama's convention speech got rough reviews, and rightly so. He offered little but tired bromides and recycled promises. But  critics overlooked one promise that will guarantee an even bleaker future.
There was plenty to dislike in Obama's speech. The language was flat, his delivery languid. The speech was stuffed with standard Obama chestnuts about the smallness of politics, the corrupting influence of money in politics, and how cynicism is our worst enemy.
Instead of stirring rhetoric filled with hope and promise, Obama pledged that under his leadership, "our path is harder" and "our road is longer."
Seriously? After four years of the worst economic recovery since the Depression, falling incomes, lower-paying jobs, increased hopelessness and exploding debt, all Obama has to offer is that he'll make this nightmare last even longer?
He also told the public that they "elected me to tell you the truth" not to  "tell you what you wanted to hear," but then proceeded to hide inconvenient  truths while filling the public's ears with sweet nothings.
For example, he pledged government help for everyone who could possibly want or need it, but managed to avoid any mention of the hard truth that the national debt just topped $16 trillion and entitlements are unsustainable.
He said he'd spend money saved from ending the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan  on roads, bridges and schools. Even the liberal press wasn't buying this one. As the AP pointed out, Obama "laid claim to a peace dividend that doesn't exist."
Obama promised to "take responsible steps" that would "keep the promise of Social Security." But he failed to mention that the only options he's left on the table are raising taxes or cutting benefits. That may not be what people want to hear, but it's the absolute truth.

He trotted out his supposed plan to cut deficits by $4 trillion over the next decade. But his actual plan — the budget he presented in February — would add $3.5 trillion in deficits, according to the Congressional Budget Office.
Then Obama said he'd create a million new manufacturing jobs, recruit another 100,000 math and science teachers, cut tuition growth in half, and reform the tax code. All by magic, apparently, since he's provided no detailed plans on any of this.
But while everyone was picking apart these and other flaws in Obama's speech, they overlooked the most frightening line of all. That was when Obama promised that he'd pursue "the kind of bold, persistent experimentation that Franklin Roosevelt pursued during the only crisis worse than this one."
That promise might have made liberal hearts swoon. But as Amity Shlaes explained in her outstanding history of the era — "The Forgotten Man" — it was precisely FDR's "bold, persistent experimentation" that was largely to blame for the length, depth and severity of the Great Depression.
Convinced that the government had to do something, FDR tinkered and experimented, she said, figuring that if he didn't "get it right the first time ... maybe he'd get it right the second time." But the very arbitrariness of FDR's actions, she found, made it impossible for businesses to make plans. And so, as FDR's bold experiments increased, business activity decreased and markets froze.
"From the point of view of a business," Shlaes said in a 2009 interview, "it is annihilating to hear Washington uncertain, and that itself retards recovery because you really don't know what to expect."
If Obama wants to conduct experiments, he should get a job as a high school  science teacher, and not use the entire nation as guinea pigs, particularly when we already know how his tests will turn out.

===============================================================================================

A recent Washington Post poll showed that “74 percent of Americans favor government-issued photo ID mandates at polling places.” This meant little to CNN because the network, whose ratings are in the proverbial toilet, ignored those numbers “in six separate segments on voter ID laws.”
A majority of Americans believe that showing identification is simply common sense when identification is necessary to identify someone. When it comes to voting, liberals are incensed that anyone would have to prove who they are. If we were all saints, and a person’s word could be trusted, then showing an ID would be unnecessary. But that would be true for all types of calls for identification.
Elections are about money and power. Elected officials have control over our lives and property with laws they pass. Millions of people vote to empower people to take money from some people and give it to them. This makes them accomplices to theft. It’s little different from hiring someone to break into a neighbors house to steal money.
If a person is willing to vote for people to take money from other people, why do we think they will be honest about who they are? Who’s to say that they won’t vote more than once or scheme to use the names of dead people and pets to increase the vote for a candidate? Am I making this up? Voter registration forms were “mailed to hundreds of dead Virginians, children, non-citizens, pets, and others ineligible to vote.”
A judge in Pennsylvania had enough good sense to see through liberal outrage and upheld a law requiring that voters show identification. Judge Robert Simpson wrote, “Thus the photo ID requirement of Act 18 is a reasonable, nondiscriminatory, nonsevere burden when viewed in the broader context of the widespread use of photo ID in daily life.”
Are there political motives on each side of the issue? Of course there are. But that doesn’t change reality. Some people are liars and thieves in both parties.
The Justice Department’s civil rights division shot down a new photo ID requirement for voters in Texas because many Hispanic voters lack state-issued identification. A similar edict from the Justice Department was leveled against South Carolina.
When I saw the doctor to be treated for a sinus infection, I had to show my driver’s license and insurance card. On my way to work a few weeks ago, the police set up a road block to check insurance cards and driver’s licenses. I wonder if the Hispanics didn’t have to show any ID. (Of course, I’m not in favor of random ID checks. I only mention this to make a point.)
Every time I fly, I have to show my ID two times before I can board the plane. When I checked into the hotel, I was asked for my ID and a valid credit card. While in Las Vegas, I set up two business bank accounts. They wanted a whole lot of IDs. Last week I went to a different bank branch to cash a check, and the teller asked for my ID and wrote my license number on the check.
Here’s a convenient list of where you will need an ID:
DMV
Airports
Hospital
Pharmacy
Donating Blood
Banks
Gun Shop
Cashing a Check
Adoption Agency
Social Security Office
Pawn Shops
Jail
Using a Credit Card
Court
Union Elections
Here’s where liberals say you shouldn’t need an ID: In the voting booth where people choose candidates to make laws for all of us. Is it too much to ask that we want to know if they are who they say they are and haven’t voted in the place of someone else or have voted six times? I don’t think so.

Rand Paul has a message for President Obama...come clean and take responsibility for the Libya debacle caused by the administration's incompetence in securing our diplomats abroad, and subsequent cover-up by the administration. 


Senator Rand Paul (R-KY)
October 24, 2012


The first and most pressing question for Mr. Obama remains: Where the hell were the Marines?

Two of the most potentially vulnerable or dangerous American embassies are in Iraq and Libya. In Iraq, we have roughly 17,000 people guarding our ambassador. Not all of them are Marines, but some several hundred are, and they guard our ambassador behind a 10-foot-high walled fortress. In Iraq, we cannot afford to take any unnecessary risks with our diplomats and go to great lengths to ensure that there are plenty of armed personnel between our representatives and any potential threats.

In Libya, there were no uniformed Marines guarding our ambassador. Originally, there was a 16-person security team led by Col. Andrew Wood, who had requested to stay in Libya. In July, Stevens sent memos to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee requesting an "extension of tour of duty (TDY) personnel." Stevens was referring to Col. Wood's 16-man team, which was scheduled to leave in August. Stevens requested on Aug. 2 - just six weeks before his murder - to keep security personnel in Libya "through mid-September," calling the conditions there "unpredictable, volatile and violent."

Col. Woods has also said that he repeatedly requested to remain in Libya because he felt both the environment and the ambassador were unsafe. Now, after the tragic fact, no one knows what happened to Stevens' original request.

Why was the security team that both Stevens and Col. Woods requested sent home? Who made this decision?

...The president now says, "The buck stops here." It's time for him to prove it, and if he won't, it is time for Congress to do its job and get to the bottom of it.


For two weeks the administration refused to acknowledge what everyone else could plainly see, because admitting that the terrorists were still out there, still plotting against America, was also admitting that all of Obama's rhetoric about repairing our relationships in the Middle East is a big fat failure. 

Statement of Opposition: Foreign Aid to Radicals
Whereas: Right now, U.S. taxpayers are forced to dole out more than $4 BILLION per year to Egypt, Libya, and Pakistan alone;
Whereas: These countries respond by looking away while our embassies are attacked, our U.S. Ambassador’s lifeless body is dragged through the streets, and by imprisoning – even torturing – the very man who helped us bring Osama bin Laden to justice; and
Whereas: There are millions of jobless men and women seeking work in America, our nation is over $16 trillion in debt with seemingly no end in sight and our roads and bridges are crumbling here at home; and
Whereas: It’s high-time that Congress started prioritize their responsibilities to the American people.
Therefore:In the interest of taxpayers, fiscal responsibility and a stronger, more prosperous America, I strongly oppose sending taxpayer dollars to Anti-American regimes.

Barack Obama: Champion of Israel? R-i-i-i-gghht …

It’s a good thing President Obama made clear his relationship with Israel tonight. It should be obvious from his countless visits there in the last four years … wait, what? You mean he hasn’t been there in the last four years? What do you mean? He and Benjamin Netanyahu are bff’s, right? Hang on. You mean he chose The View over meeting with the Prime Minister? No! And he hasn’t been to Israel for his entire presidency? Shocking!
In fact, President Obama hasn’t been to Israel since July 2008, where he went to campaign. That he bragged during tonight’s debate he didn’t bring campaign donors with him is laughable. During his visit as a presidential candidate, The Telegraph reported the following: “Mr. Obama brought with him an entourage of US television network anchors and their support staff, all of whom added to appalling traffic snarl-ups in the notoriously congested streets of Jerusalem.” Who needs to reward donors when you can play rope-a-dope with the likes of Katie Couric, Brian Williams, and Charlie Gibson?
It was a strategy that paid off. In 2008, Obama received 78% of the Jewish vote. These days he isn’t fairing quite as well. Polls project the Jewish vote to be somewhere around 65%. While it’s still a 2 to 1 margin, it’s nowhere near 2008’s numbers. Looking back on the last four years, it’s plain to see what happened.
Starting in Cairo with the famed (infamous) “New Beginning” speech, President Obama has distanced himself from Israel. As with tonight’s debate, his words didn’t always match his deeds. Sometimes, though, they do. The Washington Post quotes President Obama in a July 2009 meeting with Jewish leaders, ”During those eight years, there was no space between us and Israel, and what did we get from that? When there is no daylight, Israel just sits on the sidelines, and that erodes our credibility with the Arab states.”
In what would become a trend, members of the Obama administration were sent  out to spin the President’s words in the media after that private meeting. In this case, it was Susan Rice and Leon Panetta. (Sound familiar)?
If daylight started to appear in the cracks of our relationship with Israel  then, the sun shines through wide open gaps these days. From suggesting Israel return to pre-1967 borders, to refusing to meet with Netanyahu while he was at the U.N., the administration has made it pretty clear where they stand. Given his actions, it would seem President Obama’s motives tonight were transparent at best. At worst, they were a complete lie.
During last night’s debate, the President denied the New York Times report of secret negotiations between U.S. and Iranian officials. Iran also denies that one-on-one talks are set to take place after the election. However, the denial appeared to be as weak as President Obama’s excuse for going on David Letterman while skipping meetings with foreign leaders last month. According to the same report, “It’s not true that the United States and Iran have agreed to one-on-one talks or any meeting after the American elections,” Tommy Vietor, a White House spokesman, said Saturday evening. He added, however, that the administration was open to such talks, and has “said from the outset that we would be prepared to meet bilaterally.”
What kind of message are we sending Israel? We’re willing to meet with lunatic dictators? The same men that have made clear they will “wipe Israel off the map?”
Meanwhile, Benjamin Netanyahu had to remind the world, including the United  States that the clock is ticking on Iran. A nuclear-armed Iran is a catastrophe of international proportions. Can we trust a President that can’t be bothered to meet with what should be our closest ally? Or do we trust the man that made it clear last night, “If Israel is attacked, we have their back, not just diplomatically, not just culturally, but militarily.”

During the seven-hour terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, on September 11, 2012, that saw U.S ambassador Chris Stevens sodomized and murdered, President Obama did not intervene -- despite the fact that State Department officials were aware of what was taking place and were watching the assault on our consulate in real time!

Even worse, the very next day, Obama jetted off to a fund-raising event without adequately addressing and properly managing the crisis!

In the subsequent weeks, the American people have listened to the deceptions, misleadings and outright lies of this administration. While the President and others in his administration do their best to try to limit the damage, there's one thing they can't ignore ... FOUR AMERICANS ARE DEAD.

Many are calling this cover-up worse than Watergate and are appealing to House and Senate leadership to compel the Obama administration to fully disclose what they knew and when they knew it.

Agenda 21: How the Utopian socialist masterminds at the UN will take over your life

I have been asked to write up what I know about Agenda 21 so that everybody can become enlightened about what it is and what it means to us in the USA. So first, we need to study a little history about Agenda 21. It is not a new thing, it has been around for a while now. Agenda 21 is an all-encompassing program which came about as a result of the June 1992 Earth Summit held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. They are going to have another one this year known as Rio+20 to further tighten the screws on us and try to pass more resolutions to take away our liberty and private property rights.
The primary goals of Agenda 21 are environmental in nature but it's tentacles spread far and wide encompassing everything needed by the New World Order to establish a Utopian socialist world government controlled by the unelected UN bureaucrats. They will stick their noses into everything, everywhere. There are many treaties and laws that have sprung up from Agenda 21. Agenda 21 is not a treaty or set of laws in and of itself, but rather is an umbrella agreement signed by 179 countries to work toward the "sustainable" models described in it. Once you understand what Agenda 21 really is, you will be able to see it in just about everything. It shows itself in the UN small arms treaty, the so-called "rights of the child" treaty, and it may even be found in your city's local zoning laws, depending on where you live.
The Georgia Guidestones
Out in the middle of a field near Elberton, GA, not far from where I live, a mysterious granite monument appeared out of nowhere with a list of guidelines on it that some mysterious man believed we should live by. Some believe it was Ted Turner who had it built. That isn't the important thing about it. What is the most important part, and what ties it to Agenda 21, is the population controls.



Agenda 21: Part II, How "sustainability" is sneaking into everything

I left off in part I with some links to things about population control so I will pick it back up there. The Utopian masterminds think that the earth will only "sustain" about 500 million people. The current world population being around 10 times that, this means that a lot of people will have to go. The US has over 300 million by itself. The plan is that we will die off over a period of time and the masterminds won't let succeeding generations reproduce at current levels. They want us to herd into "sustainable cities" where we will live in small apartments and ride public transportation. Cars are evil pollution generators, especially YOUR car. Remember Obama telling the guy at one of his town hall meetings that he needed to get rid of his SUV and get a hybrid? Agenda 21. The ideas of "sustainable development" get into government control of every aspect of your life: where you live and work, whether or not you will be allowed to own a car and if you do own one, how much you will be allowed to drive it without paying a penalty for it. Smart thermostats and appliances, controlled by the government over the smart electrical grid so they can keep you from wasting water and electricity are just a couple examples of this. These are Utopian masterminds hard at work controlling you and me in almost every part of our lives. They know they can't just come in and make these changes all at once so they do it a little at a time like boiling a frog. Put a frog in a pot of boiling water and he will jump out, but put him in cold water and turn the heat up slowly and he will boil before he even realizes it. Here are some links to check out on "sustainability" that will curl your hair:
These are the UN's own websites, I am showing you this IN THEIR OWN WORDS. This is not conspiracy theory, but conspiracy FACT. Recently you have probably seen articles about this but may have not realized that it was Agenda 21 in action. The town of Tombstone, AZ was recently blocked by the US Forest Service from accessing their own water supply to do repair work on it. Agenda 21. You may have read the recent posts here and on other sites about the Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST), UN small arms treaty, the recent one about Canada getting "written up" for people not having access to food, and many others. Agenda 21 is at the root of all of this. I suggest that you all should find out if your town is involved in ICLEI and if they are do all you can to get them out of it.
In summary, I would like to recommend two books I have read recently: Mark Levin's Ameritopia and Dick Morris' new book "Screwed" which just came out. We may not be able to escape Ameritopia. I

The Czar in Hiding?                         11-19-2012


             Well, our board meeting was cancelled at the last minute tonight. TENTATIVELY re-scheduled for Saturday at 9.a.m, but should that change, I will post it immediately. I received numerous phone calls to advise me of the postponement, and the reason for it . The concensus is that the Czar requested the delay, as he did not have his necessary paperwork "in order".  Translation: He is buying time to build his excuses for his latest mis-deeds. Of course I am also sure he HATES the fact that this meeting was requested by two Councilmen  and not himself.  After all, HE is the Great Leader and the Council are mere footmen. 

               Personally, I am a tad disappointed that there was no meeting, I was looking forward to seeing the Czar be chastised by the board. Oh well, it will come.  In the meantime, does everyone know that the property reassessments have begun? Yup. If you see two nice ladies come to your home, don't be alarmed or intimidated, they are VERY nice people just doing their jobs. In fact, I like these ladies enough, that I will NOT greet them at the door with a shotgun or set the German Shepherds on them! 

             Now, something POSITIVE !  Y'all know how much I have been wanting to draw our teens and seniors together? This dream is about to come true! Brenda Ellman, the lady who has the flooding problems on Schoolhouse Road, shares my dream, and together, we are making it a reality. The Episcopal Church is making their Youth House available to us for after school fellowship and activities for high schoolers. We are building our committee and meeting with people from the Diocese in the next two weeks.

            The plans and ideas are numerous, and best of all, will include any and all seniors who wish to take part. We will be looking for Seniors who can tutor, teach the kids to cook, keep a checkbook, knit, woodworking skills, or any other talent they wish to share. In return, the kids will provide basic lawn care, minor repairs, computer training, etc. to the Seniors. We will also be scheduling movie nights, fundraisers for Charlie's Pantry, and eventually such things as music lessons, book clubs, bake-offs, field trips, community service, Civics, animal care, and job counseling. One day, we hope to even consider some Adult Ed classes, Nutrition and Gardening Classes via Cooperative Extension, and evening Bible Studies geared for youth.

            It won't all happen overnight, but it WILL happen, and it's exciting. We need and welcome all parents, teachers, craftsmen, Clergy, and especially  seniors to join us in this effort to help the most important people in our town, our kids and our Senior Citizens!  I will keep you posted on our progress.

            It looks to be a pretty quiet week ahead, so unless something noteworthy comes up, I will probably not post each night.  I will be doing some more research into Agenda 21, and finishing up projects around the cabin while we have this awesome weather. I have a few good links for you tonight and a couple I will comment on, as I just can't help myself. LOL!

The Dems have been calling names for YEARS with no reprisals or Temper-Tantrums from the Right. WE are called Homophobes, Racists, Sexists, Anti-Semites, Crackers, Extremists, Clingers, etc.,etc. Susan Rice is not eligible for the position of Secretary of State NOT because she is female, or Black, or even because she is a Liberal Dem. She is not ELIGIBLE, because she appeared on FIVE T.V Talk shows in ONE day and LIED to the American people each and every time! WHEN will politicians get a clue that LYING is Naughty. It is in the 10 Commandments; "Thou Shalt not Bear False Witness".  Lying may not be a Felony, but it is an indication of character or the lack of.  Liars are not to be trusted, therefore, they do not belong in office at any level, period.


Dems Continue to Whine Over Susan Rice Issue

==========================================================================================

Democrat Congresswomen Cry ‘Racism’ and ‘Sexism’



For all their talk about equal rights, equal pay, job parity, and breaking through the glass ceiling, Democrats are the biggest hypocrites. Proof of this can be seen in the way they treat conservative women whether black or white and how they attack any criticism of other Democrat women.
They want to be paid like men but they are not willing to take criticism like men.
The latest hypocrisy coming from the feminist camp is the condemnation of the criticism of Susan Rice, the current Ambassador to the United Nations. Rice is the person who was sent out by the Obama administration to sell the idea that the Benghazi attack was a spontaneous uprising over some obscure anti-Mohammad video that probably only six people had seen. The video-tape cause narrative was a sham from the start. The question is, Did Ambassador Rice know it, and if she did, who told her to use it? Rice is not above criticism because she’s a woman. She’s playing with the big boys, so she needs to take it like the big boys do. If she can’t then she needs to find a different line of work.
In order to protect one of their own, to silence the opposition in an attempt to cover for Ms. Rice from scrutiny that might damage President Obama, Democrat women are attacking Republicans:
“The incoming chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus – Rep. Marcia Fudge, a Democrat from Cleveland – accused Sen. John McCain of ‘sexism and racism’ for criticizing UN Ambassador Susan Rice for going on five Sunday talk shows and claiming the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi was a spontaneous reaction to a video posted on YouTube.”
Fudge claimed that “sexism and racism” are the real reason Rice is being attacked. Not to be outdone, Rep. Gwen Moore, another Democrat,  “said that McCain and other ‘men’ should not be allowed to ‘attack’ or ‘batter this woman’ Rice.” “Not allowed”? Does she want a law passed? The First Amendment was specifically designed to allow criticism of people in power without legal retaliation.
How many Democrats stood up for Clarence Thomas when he was attacked and battered? I don’t recall any. Where were these Democrat women when Condeleezza Rice and Sarah Palin were repeatedly savaged by their fellow-Democrats?
If Democrat women want equal rights, then they need to stand up and take it like men. It seems that being black and female only count on the upward swing. Once there, being a woman and of a particular race makes a Democrat immune from criticism.
Unfortunately for the Democrats, there’s a Republican senator who has joined with the sexist and racist men in wanting to learn the truth from Susan Rice — New Hampshire Senator Kelly Ayotte. Mary Chastain of Newsbusters comments:
“The media is determined to push the idea that the GOP is waging a war on women. If they included Senator Ayotte in their coverage of the pressure being applied to Ambassador Rice, it would blow their argument out of the water. Senators McCain and Graham can be used to further the media image of the GOP as old, white, out-of-touch males who don’t like women; Senator Ayotte does not.”
If a Democrat woman wants to be paid like a man, then she needs to walk like a man and take criticism like a man. If not, then she needs to go back to the kitchen and bake some cookies.

Bias by the Numbers

Leo Rennert
Pick up the Sunday, Nov. 18 edition of the Washington Post and you'll find a lengthy, front-page wrap-up about Israel's antiterrorist counteroffensive in Gaza -- with three perfect examples of pro-Palestinian, anti-Israel bias. all within eight paragraphs of each other ("GAZA CLASH WIDENS -- Israel expands air assault against Hamas, says Tel Aviv-bound rocket was intercepted" by Karin Brulliard and Abigail Hauslohner).
Here they are by the numbers:
1) Brulliard and Hauslohner devote half a dozen paragraphs to a heart-tugging, up-close and personal account of two Gaza teachers awakened by the family's windows shattering and their walls bursting open. The house next door, which belonged to a Hamas commander, sustained a direct hit. One of the teachers "frantically dug his five children out of the rubble." The other teacher "rushed from room to room, crying and gathering her children's clothing, school bags and dolls." The Post quotes her as saying again and again, "Where are we going to go? The Israelis are responsible. They are the enemy of God. What did we do? Did we carry any missiles? Did we launch any rockets?" All very poignant. But what about similar scenes in Israel, where Hamas rockets by the hundreds have been pounding civilian targets from Ashkelon, Ashdod, and Netivot to the proximity of Tel Aviv and Jerusalem? Do Brulliard and Hauslohner devote as much space to cameos of Israelis, especially children, suffering from shock and post-traumatic stress?  Does their suffering also rate half a dozen paragraphs of sympathetic coverage? If not six paragraphs, how about three... or maybe just one paragraph? Or a single despairing quote? But in the entire Post article, there isn't a single sentence depicting Israelis frantically rushing to shelters as sirens blare at any time of day -- or the traumas left in their wake. Nothing, nada. As Shakespeare might have protested: "If you prick us, do we not bleed?"
2. Brulliard and Hauslohner, writing about Israeli air strikes that demolished a Hamas police building and the headquarters of Hamas prime minister Ismail Haniyeh, conclude that "Israel appeared to be channeling new efforts toward Hamas civilian institutions." Hamas headquarters a "civilian institution"? It is nothing of the sort. The terrorist group has a unitary command-and-control apparatus and infrastructure. This is where all the terrorist plots are hatched under single command. But the Post, long known for its predilection to sanitize Hamas, presents them as "civilian" facilities that presumably should remain untouched. How touching -- for beleaguered Hamas, with Brulliard and Hauslohner to the rescue of this terrorist outfit.
3) And what about fatalities on either side? Here's the article's take: "The death toll in Gaza rose to 45 by Saturday evening, Health Ministry officials said. Three Israelis have been killed by rocket fire from Gaza." Forty-five dead "Palestinians" versus three dead "Israelis." The numerical comparison, however, is highly misleading. It's apples and oranges. On the Israel side, the three fatalities were civilians -- a reflection of Hamas aiming its massive rocket barrages at civilian populations. On the Gaza side, however, Israeli air strikes are carefully and deliberately aimed at terrorists, their arms caches, ammunition, and rocket launchers. Yes, there are collateral fatalities, but only because Hamas and other terror groups in Gaza hide amid civilians and use them as ''human shields.'' Estimates of combatant-versus-noncombatant fatalities in Gaza are beginning to trickle in. Early figures show most of them were combatants engaged in terrorist operations. To bundle civilian and terrorist fatalities into a single statistic leaves readers with a false impression that perhaps most or all of those killed Gazans were civilians -- the very opposite of what's really happening there. Bottom line: Washington Post readers beware. This isn't kosher journalism.

What if Obama had to interview for the job rather than Campaign?

Written on Monday, November 19, 2012 by David L. Goetsch
interview
The process by which we choose our presidents in America is apparently broken, or if not broken it is at least suspect. Why, you ask, would I make such an assertion? Am I a political heretic? Am I questioning the concept of democracy? The answer to both of these questions is “no I am not.” Rather, I am questioning the practical application of the concept, specifically as it relates to how we choose our president. In the private sector, if the hiring process resulted in the selection of the least-qualified applicant we would know something is wrong since choosing the best-qualified applicant was the goal. If the goal of the process by which we select our president is to choose the best qualified candidate, our process is without question broken.
What if Barack Obama, instead of campaigning, had to interview for the job of president and provide a resume to the American people? His resume would have almost no entries before the one showing his first term as president, and that entry would contain nothing but a litany of failed policies and programs. Frankly, with a resume like his, Barack Obama could not even get a job in today’s economy. Even when hiring minimum-wage employees, companies do a better job of screening their applicants than America did in selecting our president in the recent election. If Barack Obama had to interview for the job of President of the United States, his interview might go something like this:
Interviewer: Mr. Obama, unemployment in our country is higher than it has been in years. We are looking for a leader who can turn our economy around and create jobs for Americans who are hurting. Do you have any experience in creating jobs?
Barack Obama: Yes, I have created jobs. I created jobs for 43 czars and 279 new presidential assistants in the White House. Does that count? I know what you are thinking: 43 and 279 does not quite offset the 1.6 million jobs I eliminated in the private sector, but it’s a start.
Interviewer: Hum, I see. Well, let’s move on to the price of gasoline. The price at the pump is giving most Americans sticker shock every time they fill up. Prices have fallen somewhat in the last several months, but not much and they are still very high. We are looking for a leader who can use the power of the presidency to help reduce gas prices. Do you have any experience in reducing the price of gasoline?
Barack Obama. No, I have done nothing to reduce the price of gas, but I have done plenty to increase it. In fact, when I took office gas averaged $1.89 per gallon nationally. It is now averaging around $3.40 per gallon. If I can keep this trend going in the right direction, Americans will begin to accept my ideas for alternative energy sources such as wind and solar. But between you and me, the price of gas is going to have to get much higher than $3.40 per gallon for that to happen. I need to get it up to $5.00 or more per gallon and keep it there consistently or my cronies in alternative energy businesses aren’t going to survive.
Interviewer. I see. Well, let’s talk about the national debt. We are concerned that it is robbing our children of their future. Consequently, we are looking for someone who can drastically reduce the national debt. Do you have any experience in this area?
Barack Obama. I’m glad you asked. The national debt is one of my areas of expertise. In fact, during less than four years as president I was able to increase the national debt by 51 percent. You look shocked. If you don’t believe me, check the numbers. I inherited a national debt of $10.6 trillion and in less than four years increased it to $16 trillion and counting. No one else you will interview can make that claim.
Interviewer. That’s, uh, very interesting. One last question Mr. Obama. We are concerned about the number of people living in poverty. Do you have any experience in moving people out of poverty and up the socio-economic ladder?
Barack Obama. No, can’t say that I have. As president my plan was to get as many people living in poverty and addicted to government entitlements as possible—it keeps them loyal don’t you see? The way I look at it poverty means dependency and I want people to depend on government. It makes them easier to manipulate.
Interviewer. Thank you Mr. Obama. That’s all of my questions. Don’t call us, we’ll call you—or, on second thought, maybe we won’t.

Two soldiers from Fort Riley's 1st Infantry Division have been killed while deployed to Paktika Province in Afghanistan.

The division issued a release Monday saying Sgt. Channing Hicks and Spc. Joseph Richardson were killed Friday when they were attacked by militants using roadside bombs and small-arms fire. Both men were assigned to 1st Battalion, 28th Infantry of the division's 4th Infantry Brigade Combat Team and were on their first deployment to Afghanistan.

The 24-year-old Hicks was from Greer, S.C., and joined the Army in June 2006. He had two previous deployments to Iraq.

Richardson, 23, was from Booneville, Ark., and joined his unit in October 2008. He had one previous deployment to Iraq with the 1st Infantry Division.

It's always with great sadness that we have to report about the deaths of our troops. But we can't ignore their sacrifices either, we have to recognize that these young men and women are so brave because they know they're volunteering for a dangerous job - defending our homeland and our way of life. So please remember to pray for our troops in harm's way this Thanksgiving, and give thanks to them for the sacrifices they are making on our behalf.

The Wimpy Church                      11-20-2012


        I thought I would have nothing to discuss for a day or two, but as usual, my head won't give me a day off.  As things continue to ramp-up in Israel , I find the media handling of the situation to be more and more offensive. Today, Turkey referred to Israel as a "Terrorist Country". No one in the Obama administration objected, instead they claimed that since both Turkey and Israel are our "Allies", they don't want to take sides. Excuse me?  Are not ALL the Middle-Eastern countries Muslim- controlled now with the exception of Israel? 

         Hamas has been posting out-dated photos of injured and dead children and civilians and blaming Israel for deaths that were caused by Hamas' OWN missiles. Sympathy seems to be directed toward Gaza, the people who fired the first shot, the people who have no RIGHT to even BE on the Gaza strip, the Radical Islamic lunatics. I agree with Glenn Beck's stand on the issue, that Israel was backed into a corner by radicals and was left with no choice but to fight back. 

         Beck asked if we in America, would do nothing if Canada starting firing missiles into Buffalo,N.Y, or Mexico into Texas.  THINK about that. Did you know that Israel is situated at the exact center of the earth, and that Jerusalem sits in the exact center of Israel? Tiny Israel is an oasis in a war-torn desert of violent, mentally-ill, hateful, despotic and blood-thirsty countries, yet she remains strong and proud. Israel has something the rest of the world does not. If you don't know what that something is, you might want to pick up a Bible and blow the dust off the cover. 

          Evolutionists can give a million and one excuses and scientific explanations for their beliefs, yet they cannot explain the geographical position of Israel, or the fact that no country that has come against her has ever succeeded. None ever will. That does not mean however, that we should not stand behind Israel and defend her with our last breath if necessary. Which brings me to the real reason I am posting tonight. Wimpy Christianity.

           I'm not going to quote scripture here, partly because I like to nudge folks to look into the Word for themselves, and partly because I don't want to go looking for it myself right now either. I admit it, I am a tad lazy tonight, still trying to kick this cold or virus or whatever it is I've been fighting all month.  In any case, I have studied the Bible enough to know that Christians today are NOT doing their job.

    

The story that the link below will bring you to, explains EXACTLY how I have been feeling for the past year. These feelings of resentment toward Christian Churches and Clergy have escalated in the last few months of this year's campaign and of course immediately following the election itself. I am angry, disappointed, and embarassed by my fellow Christians who fail to Speak or Stand against the wrongs or to defend the Rights. God was not a Wimp and He never intended for his people to be either.                 

The Bible is brimming with scripture that proves the Christian's DUTY to take an active role in the government that so influences our daily lives, our beliefs and our Faith. I am tired of Wimpy Christians, Wimpy Clergy, and of the excuses given by so many that mistakenly believe that Christianity means to be always humble, always still, silent, and meek. Turning the other cheek is fine in some situations, but once we have offered them both up to slaps, are we to lie down and wait to be kicked?

In the days since Obama won re-election, my husband and I have had several discussions about this subject. We do not agree. He feels that since God is in control, we are merely to pray and rely upon Him for relief and guidance. To a point, my husband is correct. However, I do not feel that prayer and Faith are ALL that is expected of us by God. I believe that the Christian is obligated to be active in the fight against sin, that we are to go out on that proverbial limb and put ourselves on the front line for Christ. For ME, it is HERE that Faith and Trust in God come into play. Taking action, risking it all, and bearing up under persecution, are the times when we need to step out on Faith and Trust God to protect us and strengthen us. It is when we put ourselves in harm's way for what the Bible tells us is Right, that we earn God's protection and approval.

Sitting in the pew on Sunday, praying beside your bed at night, are wonderful, necessary parts of Christian living, but they are not ENOUGH! Christians have POWER, they have GOD! Failing to unite and to stand for all He has taught us is not an option for ME. Throwing away the wisdom and Grace He has given to us by sitting idly by while the United States implodes, while Israel is attacked, is not acceptable. Clergy standing upon the pulpits and saying NOTHING, is unacceptable. I have not been to church since the election, I cannot bring myself to look upon professed Christians who believe that our political situation is off-limits, that are intimidated by the I.R.S and the threat of losing their Tax Exemptions! Are not the Truth and Obedience to God far more important than a tax-free church building
?

           My friend Pastor Jack, is also upset by the lack of Christian voices and actions. I sent him the above link today, and he responded:

I was asked by a FaceBook friend this question: WHAT IS YOUR TAKE ON THE ELECTION? Here is the answer I gave: 

Well the people of America have spoken and I was so surprised by what they've chosen. Choices have consequences and I believe that no matter what the GOP spin doctors say, this is not about marketing, it is about the heart of America. Over half of the nation voted against the Lord and for the shedding of innocent blood and the degradation of Marriage; not to mention our stand for Israel. We can only expect the chastising of the Lord as a nation in the next 4 years. "If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?" (Psalm 11:3). It is now time to bring the knowledge of Jesus Christ forward into our culture without fear or intimidation. First, however, large numbers of Christians need to repent for voting for this President's ungodly policies. Christians voted for him and thus chose legalized perversion and the position for the legal killing of babies in the womb. This is not about politics, it is about making a choice and the Lord knows. My take is that pastors / preachers need to call the church to repentance right now and then call the church to bring the knowledge of Christ out of the 4 walls of the church buildings into the culture. Let Jesus be now "in the face" of the society. It will lead to persecution, but also to many conversions. THAT IS MY TAKE ON IT. Thanks for asking.

The above is on facebook today. also I posted the link below.

It's one of the many things I love about him, and it is to him that I often turn for spiritual advice.  Though I try not to proselytize on this website too often, there are times that it is necessary, and the path America is taking and the issues in the Holy Land , tell me that this is one of those times. I have known Christians who were so passionate about NOT mixing religion and politics, that they literally exploded if the subject was broached. I have also known many that believe as I do, that we should be more pro-active.

Church Failure Led to Obama Re-Election



In colonial America, virtually all news was disseminated from the pulpits of churches throughout the colonies. Besides being a place to worship God, churches were the only real town meeting center and it was the role of the pastor to keep his flock informed.
When it came time to rebel against the British, the announcements were made from the pulpits. The call to arms was not only considered to be a civic duty but a religious one as well. Many a pastor also picked up his rifle and went to fight for America’s freedom.
As America grew, the role of the church continued to be that of religion and news. Pastors felt it was their duty as servants of God to inform their congregations about important events and about the various candidates running for office. In those days, pastors were free to endorse political parties and candidates and keep their people well informed.
Now that most churches are tax exempt, they feel that they are not allowed to say anything political whatsoever. The bullying effect of the federal government has all but silenced the church’s involvement in political affairs. However, pastors and church leaders can still keep their people informed of political issues, political ideologies, and to encourage them to vote based on their faith in biblical principles.
Three hundred years ago virtually all political news was disseminated from the pulpit. Today, almost no political news comes from the pulpit. In the 2004 presidential election 27% of voters who attend church regularly said that they received information on political parties or candidates from their place of worship. This past November only 13% said they received information on political parties or candidates from their place of worship.
The rise of liberal progressivism virtually mirrors the declining political role of churches and church leaders. It just may be that the Church’s silence on political issues and candidates is what gave the election of Barack Obama. Had pastors been doing their job, as in days of old, America may have had whole different look to it today.
Rather than blame the GOP loss on Mitt Romney’s campaign, GOP moderatism, modes of campaign advertising, or any other thing that people have been blaming the GOP loss on, I believe it is a direct result of the Church’s failure to inform their people properly. And until the church realizes that it has a civic as well as religious duty we may never get America back. So when you look for someone or something to blame, look at your own church and pastor and ask yourself if they did their job in informing you of which political issues and candidates were closer to biblical principles. If the answer is no, now you know why Barack Obama won a second term.

Media freak out over Rubio’s remarks on age of the Earth

6:32 PM 11/19/2012
Alex Pappas
Political Reporter

The media are in full freak-out mode over Florida Sen. Marco Rubio’s comments about the age of the Earth.
“I got a chill when I read Rubio’s statements,” Phil Plait, an astronomy blogger, wrote in a story at Slate.
It all started when GQ magazine published an interview with the Republican senator on Monday that included the question, “How old do you think the Earth is?”

Scientists estimate that the Earth is 4.5 billion years old, though Christians cite the Bible in saying the Earth is younger. It’s the sort of question meant to give insight into whether someone believes in evolution or creationism — or both.
“I’m not a scientist, man,” Rubio responded to the question from the GQ reporter, going on to explain that the question is “one of the great mysteries.”
“I think the age of the universe has zero to do with how our economy is going to grow,” Rubio said. “I’m not a scientist. I don’t think I’m qualified to answer a question like that.”
News outlets – ranging from the Washington Post to Politico – drew attention to the remarks. Liberals and left-leaning outlets subsequently mocked Rubio for it.
“As I like to say, the GOP doesn’t just want to roll back the New Deal; it wants to roll back the Enlightenment,” the liberal New York Times columnist Paul Krugman wrote.

“Scientists agree: the Earth is about 4.5 billion years old. But don’t tell that to Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) — he thinks the age of the Earth can be discovered by studying the Bible,” a blogger at the left-wing ThinkProgress wrote.
Conservatives, other the other hand, dismissed the inquiry as a “gotcha question” and the subsequent response as manufactured outrage designed to make Rubio, viewed as a future star of the Republican Party, look bad.
Rubio aides, however, don’t seem to be sweating it.
“We thought it was a good interview, so it’s great people are talking about it and (hopefully) linking to it,” spokesman Alex Conant told The Daily Caller.

    SEE? OUR beliefs are "mocked". Well guess what? Carbon dating set the age of a 1-year-old turtle at 127 million years old! About as accurate as police radar guns!

Hamas Rockets Kill Child – Hamas Blames Israel – World Believes Hamas

posted on November 20, 2012 by Giacomo


I heard in on the local and national news that Israeli airstrikes killed children in Gaza. Most of the mainstream media was instantly blaming Israel for the needless killing of children and some went so far as to blame the current exchange of fire on Israel.
Two news reports I saw failed to mention that Hamas started the current conflict by launching hundreds of rockets into Israel from the Gaza. Israel, of course retaliated with numerous airstrikes and rockets launched back at Gaza targets. Israel claims that most all of their targets were aimed at Hamas militants and locations were rockets were being launched from.
Shortly after things escalated Hamas leaders were seen parading the body of a dead child through the streets. At the time Egyptian Prime Minister Hisham Kandil was visiting Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh. One of the photographs seen around the world was taken when the Egyptian Prime Minister kissed the dead child.
But it didn’t take long for others to realize that Israeli airstrikes had not occurred at the time of the Egyptian Prime Minister’s visit. Coupled with a long history of Hamas faking civilian deaths in Gaza, many believe that the child was killed by Hamas’s own rockets and not by an Israeli airstrike. A week ago Breitbart.com discovered Hamas using a month old photo taken in Syria and claimed they were recent civilian casualties due to Israeli strikes.
There are of course civilian deaths that occur in Gaza but so far most of them have been attributed to Hamas and not Israel. So please remember when watching or listening to our liberal mainstream media that they are quick to put the blame on Israel and that Hamas has a long history of lying and faking civilian deaths. You can’t always believe everything you see and hear especially from the media that are experts at twisting and hiding the truth in so many areas.

The PIG of Prevarication

Obama in Burma, Appeasing Another Dictatorship



Burma is a society under tyranny. The military government has a record of human rights violations such as genocide, systematic rape, slavery, sex trafficking and child labor.
The government is so reprehensible, in fact, that many civilized countries refuse to acknowledge the name Myanmar, which is the official name of the country since the military junta changed it in 1989.
As such, you would expect the country to receive some stern words from the president of the freest country on Earth, something along similar lines to “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!” perhaps.
Instead, President Obama, fresh off his re-election, was out kissing up to another dictatorship today when he spoke in Burma. In his honor, the Burmese government release several dozen prisoners.
It wasn’t exactly an apology tour this time, but he pointedly referred to the country as Myanmar, throwing a bone to the country’s dictatorship, when U.S. policy for years has been to call it Burma.
During his speech, Obama assured his audience that “the United States of America is with you.”
He also threw in some of his usual socialist happy talk about how important it is for people to be allowed to own the land they live on, unless they become too wealthy, in which case their wealth needs to be redistributed.
Obama was there to pump up trade relations and congratulate Burma on its “transition” to a more mercantile society, nothing more. There was some pap about empowering young people, “investing in you” and so on in a country where people are still held as political prisoners for speaking up and where brutal treatment of anyone who steps out of line is still the order of the day.
But the most tooth-gnashing part of the speech was hearing the supposed leader of the free world tell an audience under dictatorship, “Now, on other hand, as president, I cannot just impose my will on Congress — the Congress of the United States — even though sometimes I wish I could.”
Why not just say, “Gee, you guys are really on to something with this tyranny thing”?
The joke, of course, is that Obama has imposed his will on Congress more than once, during the whole Obamacare “debate” and most notably when he wrote, passed and authorized amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants through executive order.
Once again, America’s principles are undercut by the man in the Oval Office.

The Communist Takeover Of 
America - 45 Declared Goals

From Greg Swank
12-4-2


You are about to read a list of 45 goals that found their way down the halls of our great Capitol back in 1963. As you read this, 39 years later, you should be shocked by the events that have played themselves out. 

Communist Goals (1963) Congressional Record--Appendix, pp. A34-A35 January 10, 1963

Current Communist Goals EXTENSION OF REMARKS OF HON. A. S. HERLONG, JR. OF FLORIDA IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES Thursday, January 10, 1963 .

Mr. HERLONG. Mr. Speaker, Mrs. Patricia Nordman of De Land, Fla., is an ardent and articulate opponent of communism, and until recently published the De Land Courier, which she dedicated to the purpose of alerting the public to the dangers of communism in America.

At Mrs. Nordman's request, I include in the RECORD, under unanimous consent, the following "Current Communist Goals," which she identifies as an excerpt from "The Naked Communist," by Cleon Skousen:

[From "The Naked Communist," by Cleon Skousen]

1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.

2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.

3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.

4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.

5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.

6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.

7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.

8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev's promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.

9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.

10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.

11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)

12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.

13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.

14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.

15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers' associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

18. Gain control of all student newspapers.

19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.

20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policy-making positions.

21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.

22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to "eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms."

23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. "Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art."

24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press.

25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy."

27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a "religious crutch."

28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state."

29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the "common man."

31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the "big picture." Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture--education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.

33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.

34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.

35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.

36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.

37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.

38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].

39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist  goals.

40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.

41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.

42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use ["]united force["] to solve economic, political or social problems.

43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.

44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.

45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.

Giving Thanks                                                11-22-2012


              Happy Thanksgiving. Hope y'all had a great meal and good company. We had a A+ day here at the cabin with family and friends. Have you ever wondered why people become Human again on the holidays ? There's something about Thanksgiving and Christmas that brings out the best in people. We are gentler, friendlier, more charitable, and just plain BETTER than we are the rest of the year. Well, with the exception of the crazies that go out on Black Friday and trample each other to death over a wide-screen T.V, but that's another story.

               The holidays just seem to have a magic air about them that transforms even the most miserable among us into warm,forgiving and and likeable folks. I think this transformation, short-lived as it always is, is my favorite part of the celebrations. In general, I am no fan of ANY holidays.  As a person that thrives on routine, even weekends can throw me off, so you can imagine how much the holidays cramp my style. Of course, once you stop believing in Santa Claus, it's never the same anyway! LOL! 

                 As a Christian, I respect Christmas for what it symbolizes, but it IS just a symbol. No one really knows exactly when Jesus was actually born, so December 25th is just the day we have chosen to honor and celebrate that gift. When and how, it became a commercial holiday, I don't know. The spirituality of the day has been stolen by the mad rush to buy the best gifts and spend the most money on toys and baubles that mean nothing. As I was thinking about this today, a question came to mind that I really would love an answer to.

                  Why IS it, that the Liberals, Progressives, Atheists, etc., celebrate Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas, all of which are CHRISTIAN holidays? They persecute us, blaspheme God and ignore His Word, they sin deliberately and repeatedly, they lie consistently, stores instruct their employees to say, "Happy Holidays" to customers rather than "Merry Christmas". Yet the Liberals and Atheists are out there filling their shopping carts with Easter candy, Butterball turkeys, and Christmas gifts, decorations and wrappings! The stores that refuse to verbally recognize the "Christ" in Christmas, rake in MILLIONS of dollars. So why IS THAT? Isn't that hypocritical? 

                Shouldn't these non-believers be the ones that WORK on these holidays so that the Christians can stay home and enjoy THEIR celebrations with family? Why do these people object to a manger scene on the public square, but stay up on Christmas eve to fill their children's stockings? Is it the Double-Standard again, or just mere stupidity? I don't celebrate Ramadan, or Hannukah, I am not a Jew or an Arab. I do not believe in Allah or Mohammed. I never took the day off or bought gifts on those days.  To ME, it would seem that the God haters and deniers, should not celebrate the Christian Holidays. Stores that ban the word "Christmas", should not sell holiday items. (By the way, I have a list of stores that do and do not say the dreaded word, posted below).

               Thanksgiving too, is a Christian Holiday, a day to give thanks to, Guess Who? GOD. Can't deny the facts,folks.  That's the thing about Liberals, they just don't get it, AND they want to have their cake and eat it too. That's their philosophy about everything in life. ME, ME, ME. I want what I want and if it hurts YOU, tough. Stupid, Selfish, Spoiled, Dependent Babies.  My own parents were atheists, yet they spent a small fortune on these holidays. What gave them that right?  What gives ANY non-Believer that right?

Seven Myths of the Radical Left About Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving Day should stand out in our hearts as one of the most sacred and significant days of celebration of the year. The importance of Thanksgiving Day does not merely stem from its patriotic value as the oldest national celebration in American history. The day should not be observed simply to maintain a historical tradition that was cherished long before it was officially declared a national holiday. Thanksgiving Day is momentous because it not only calls our remembrance to the awe-inspiring work of God’s providence among our forbearers, but also allows us to connect with them in a real way by demanding a perpetual reflection on the providence of God in our own lives. Whether joyfully or with more than a little misgiving, on Thanksgiving Day the nation acknowledges that we are the heirs of our Pilgrim Fathers. Thanksgiving provides a national identification that should connect with every American on a deep and intimate level. It is a day that points to the firm conviction that every good and perfect gift comes from above, and that we are the residual beneficiaries of God’s favor bestowed upon, and celebrated by our ancestors, during that first Thanksgiving feast. As we gather around our family tables in celebration of God’s providence and provision we are the fulfillment of the hope of those godly men and women; we are the enduring testimony to the fruition of their multi-generational vision of faithfulness.
At the same time, it is perhaps for this very reason that the hallowed importance of Thanksgiving Day is diminished in our modern culture. The necessary reflection on God’s providence invoked on this day is something that the unregenerate heart simply cannot grasp, much less celebrate. The essential theme of man’s utter dependence on God is something to which men shaped by the egotistical philosophy of the enlightenment cannot relate. The exclusive adoration and deep fidelity to Jesus Christ practiced among the Pilgrim Fathers is something that this secular generation finds intolerable. For this reason, each year the observance of Thanksgiving Day has gradually diminished into a day celebrated by an excess of parades, food, and football. Thanksgiving Day has been even further eroded by the radical left who, out of their hatred for God, has revised history to distort and pervert America’s Christian heritage. While the Christmas holiday has inherited its fictitious flying reindeer and Easter has inherited a fictitious egg laying rabbit, it seems that Thanksgiving has inherited a fictitious historical narrative, equal to those other absurdities, and accompanied by a barrage of unwarranted ridicule and speculative doubt.
For this reason, there are many who view Thanksgiving Day as a national day of mourning. While Thanksgiving Day is a happy time, many cannot celebrate the occasion without a small feeling of shame for the oppressors and remorse for the oppressed. Of course, such an understanding of history is based on a fictitious and speculative view of Pilgrim/ Indian relations. It is incumbent on Christian families of this generation to debunk the myths invented by those who seek to divorce history from truth because they have rejected God, the sovereign author of history. By debunking these myths we hope to reflect on the true meaning of this day of thanksgiving and restore a culture that gives proper glory, honor, and thanksgiving to God. We confront these unhappy skeptics to defend the honor and preserve the legacies of the Englishmen and Native Americans that gathered in friendship during that first thanksgiving harvest. The myth-making ability of modern skeptics seems to be limitless, but here let us contend with those myths that have been the most widely propagated and generally believed concerning our Pilgrim Fathers and their Native American friends.
=============================================================================================

Yes Virginia, There’s a Santa Claus, But He’s Not Karl Marx Or Barack Obama




santa-marx Is Karl Marx the dark version of Santa Claus? “From each according to his ability. To each according to his need.”
Since Rush Limbaugh has been talking about Obama as Santa Claus, I started thinking about Karl Marx as the Jolly Old Elf. Obviously, Karl Marx can’t be Santa Claus because Karl Marx is a thief. Santa is not a thief. But the handout from an anonymous stranger idea is similar. I think Rush is onto the “fundamental transformation” of Santa Claus.
Is Barack Obama the reincarnation of Karl Marx? If he is, he is a hybrid version of an opportunistic fascism and communism. Interesting, but lethal. Santa is not lethal. But Karl Marx is. When I think back to Barack Obama’s famous line about “Fundamentally transforming the United States of America,” I remember the dread and chill down my spine at the time. (unlike the thrill that went up Chris Matthews leg…mine was more like a ghost walked over my grave.)
Obama’s “fundamental transformation” means there is no longer a United States of America. And now Obama has become Santa Claus.
I finally watched a video that has been out for a while called, “Dreams From My Real Father.” I hadn’t sought it out, but someone loaned it to me to watch. I had thought it was probably just a stab in the dark, some remote concept that “might” have some few facts in it. I was wrong. It is extremely plausible. More than that. I believe it is true. After watching it, I believe the author is right on target. Barack Obama is a red diaper grand-baby and was groomed from the very beginning to implement Communism with every lying fiber of his being. His childhood story is not necessarily leading up to what you would guess would happen, winning the Presidency of the United States. But it did.
There is a very brief scene in the movie where Obama is walking on the sidewalk in DC, apparently right around the Capitol area. He is walking next to a much shorter man in a suit who is smiling and looking up at him. The shorter man seems very pleased to be conversing and walking with Obama, smiling and looking quite cheerful. That shorter man is my Republican congressman. That brief moment in the film sent chills down my spine….again. That congressman went to school with my children. I’ve known him a long time. The scene of him smiling and seeming to be so happy to be in Obama’s company was disappointing, to say the least. I instantly felt terrible for him, but worse for our nation.
By the end of the movie I found myself almost in tears. I had known a lot of the facts presented already, but to see them sewn together in that cohesive manner was a bit overwhelming. (If you can take it, I highly recommend watching and owning this video / movie. Your children will one day want to have this history lesson…God willing.)
Back to the red diaper baby theme, Karl Marx’s followers have been taught how to psychologically manipulate the masses. The Saul Alinsky method of collapsing the system has been common education to Ivy League law students and political students for decades. Hillary wrote her thesis on Alinsky and is in the Cloward and Piven camp to this day. Not satisfied with wrecking America, Obama and Hillary are busy crashing nations. Both were recently in Myranmar promising to hand out goodies to those Asians who will tow their line. I’m sure that will end well. (ahem.) Santa and Mrs. Claus / Marx. Lord only knows what they have stolen from us to give to the Muslim Brotherhood. We know what they have stolen from us to give to the UN and to their cronies in global businesses. We know what they have stolen from us to give to the welfare state and wreck the healthcare system here. We know they are stealing away our America.
As the Marxists in America are now driving the public school system, the Christian Holidays are becoming taboo, but the Federal government is promoted as Santa Claus. (I’ve noticed lately that Thanksgiving is being turned into “Harvest Day” so children don’t feel obligated to thank God for their blessings.) So here come the Holidays…but not the ones you think. The Holidays are being “fundamentally transformed” along with everything else.
Barack Obama, the Marxist, pretends to be Santa Claus to win elections. Jingles are written about him. Parades and celebrations created for him. His elves (read Czars) have in past years decorated the White House trees with Mao ornaments.
Karl Marx, aka Barack Obama pretending to be Santa Claus, is in the White House wearing a red diaper? Looks like it to me.
Happy Holidays…Here Comes Santa Claus!

The COW AND THE ICE CREAM 
ONE OF THE BEST THEORIES OF WHY OBAMA WON THE ELECTION 



-->From a teacher in the Nashville area - -


"We are worried about 'the cow' when it is all about the 'Ice Cream. 'The most eye-opening civics lesson I ever had was while teaching 3rd grade. The last Presidential election was heating up and some of the children showed an interest. I decided we would have an election for a class president. We would choose our nominees. They would make a campaign speech and the class would vote. To simplify the process, candidates were nominated by other class members. We discussed what kinds of characteristics these students should have. We got many nominations and from those, Jamie and Olivia were picked to run for the top spot. 
The class had done a great job in their selections. Both candidates were good kids. 

I thought Jamie might have an advantage because he got lots of parental support. 

I had never seen Olivia's mother. 

The day arrived when they were to make their speeches. 

Jamie went first. 

He had specific ideas about how to make our class a better place. 
He ended by promising to do his very best. 

Everyone applauded and he sat down. 

Now is was Olivia's turn to speak. 

Her speech was concise. She said, "If you will vote for me, I will give you ice cream." She sat down. 

The class went wild. "Yes! Yes! We want ice cream." 

She surely would say more. She did not have to. 

A discussion followed. How did she plan to pay for the ice cream? She  wasn't sure. But no one pursued that question. They took her at her word. 

Would her parents buy it or would the class pay for it...She didn't know. 

The class really didn't care. All they were thinking about was ice cream... 

Jamie was forgotten. Olivia won by a landslide. 

Every time Barack Obama opened his mouth he offered ice cream and 51.4 % of the people reacted like nine year old's. 

They want ice cream. 

The other 48.6% percent know they're going to have to feed the cow and clean up the mess." 

This is the ice cream Obama promised us! 


Remember, the government cannot give anything to anyone that they have not first taken away from someone else. 
Did you vote for the ice cream? 


THAT MY FRIEND, IS HOW OBAMA GOT ELECTED...
BY THOSE WHO WANT EVERYTHING FOR FREE!

Special Meeting Re-Scheduled                11-23-2012


             The meeting we were to have on Monday is scheduled for tomorrow, 11-24-2012 at 10 a.m at the American Legion Building. I'm sure the Czar has had adequate time to get his "Ducks in a Row", so to speak. We shall see, I guess. I still can't help but wonder about this meeting being held on a Saturday morning.  Seems like an effective method of keeping the attendance down. Gee, will the Tabloid writer, Gail Heinsohn make it that early? We can only hope NOT. 

              The first link I've posted below is one I consider to be very important. When you listen to and watch this Congressman speak, please take note of first, his outrage, and second, his emotions. This is a man who takes the Benghazi incident personally, as do many Americans. An attack upon fellow Americans by Terrorists, especially an attack upon our Ambassador and SOLDIERS, is an attack on us ALL. Sadly, this too, has become an issue of division between the political parties, the Left and the Right. It should NOT be. 

             The timing of the attack was a big problem for Obama, since election day was so close. The Democrats did what they always do; they covered it up, lied and made excuses to delay "dealing" with the matter until AFTER the election. That was THEIR decision, not the Republican's. Well, the election is over, and now it is time to face the issue head-on. Now the Democrats are whining that the insistence of the Right and the people, to investigate this attack, is sour grapes; revenge for losing the election. Their bag of excuses has no bottom. 

              Had a REPUBLICAN been in the Oval Office when this attack occurred, the Left would have been screaming for blood, public hangings and at the very LEAST, Impeachment. Ah, but the tables are turned, this happened under Obama's watch. Obama may be Messiah to the poor, misled few, but he is not above the law. He will be held responsible for his actions or in-actions, exactly as a Republican President would have been. 

              The Benghazi investigation is not a partisan issue, it is not a matter of payback. It IS an AMERICAN Tragedy that no one has answered for.  Did you KNOW, that before Ambassador Stevens was killed, that he was tortured and SODOMIZED? Fact. After MONTHS of pleading for more security, after NINE HOURS of bloody battle during which these men BEGGED for help, no one responded. These men were left alone to die. WHY?  Why were the trained troops that were ready and EAGER to go to their aid, told to "Stand Down"?  Was the Obama administration deliberately delaying in order to be certain that Stevens was dead? Did Stevens have information that was detrimental to Obama and the election? 

                 Where does the cover-up begin and end? Who, other than Obama, was complicit, and why did they send Susan Rice out to lie, over and over and over, when she and they all knew damn well what the truth was?  Finally, WHY are Harry Reid and the Democrats in Congress, scrambling to squash this investigation? I gotta tell ya people, if we do NOT speak out and demand the truth, this WILL be swept under the rug. We CANNOT allow that to happen. This is not about Party lines, this is about four dead Americans, one of which was raped and tortured. 

                If this event is allowed to simply go away, if those involved get away with this, then America truly IS lost, and it IS too late to heal her. If we the People, do not take a stand, how will we ever face our maker? Have we become SO amoral, SO unplugged and apathetic, that we would let those responsible go unpunished?  How do you think the families of those lost in this attack, will look at the rest of us if we do nothing? How will we look at ourselves ?  

                 Please, please, PLEASE, call or write your Senators and Chris Gibson and tell them that you want to see this investigated in the same manner that Watergate was investigated, and those responsible, fired and charged with these murders. It is well past time for all politicians of EVERY party , get the message that they are subject to the Law in the same way as the rest of us are. Time to say, ENOUGH.  It's up to ME and it is up to YOU. Dare to make a difference.

Another Step Toward Communism


 November  2012 Entries



 Heinsohn Needs to GO !!!!!                      11-3-2012


         For over a year now, I have been reporting to you the issues we have had with reporter Gail Heinsohn. As a so-called "writer" for the Chatham Courier and Register-Star, Heinsohn attends and reports on numerous town board's meetings. During the town Supervisor election last year, Heinsohn was exposed as being extremely bias in favor of the Liberal Left and the corrupt, and to this day, I hold her personally responsible for several of the candidate's campaigns being unfairly destroyed.  We have sent complaints to her editors and even asked if they could switch her with a reporter that does not LIVE in Lebanon and has no local loyalties or grudges to play out in the pages of the papers.  Let Heinsohn report for Chatham or Canaan! 

        This "reporter", puts her own slant on every piece she writes, and the Truth be damned. She is the reason that I no longer bother to read the Chatham Rags. Earlier today, it was brought to my attention that Heinsohn had once AGAIN twisted actual events to lend drama and a false impression to her story. The piece in question is the article she wrote about the Oct. 23 Lebanon Budget Meeting. In that article, Heinsohn relates an exchange between resident Kevin Smith and Councilman Matt Larabee. She spun the incident to make it sound like Smith was disruptive and was then threatened with removal by Larabee. Read it for yourselves.

        I attended that meeting, and I can and will, tell you what ACTUALLY happened. Kevin Smith had attempted several times, to ask a question of the board and was rudely ignored. At one point, the Czar even threw himself back in his chair as he is so fond of doing, rolled his eyes, and drummed his fingers loudly on the table! Now, tell me if I am wrong, but these budget meetings are actually not "Meetings", they are WORKSHOPS, open and publicized for the express purpose of allowing the residents TO ask questions and offer input on where their tax dollars are going, YES?  

        So why, does the Czar seem to be under the impression that the public is receiving some kind of Special Privilege by being allowed into the room?  Why is it, that he becomes IRATE when anyone wants to ask a question or make a comment in an orderly and polite manner? Who is HE to threaten to end the workshop if the public doesn't sit and stay quiet like good little soldiers? Michael Benson seems to have forgotten one very important fact; that HE is OUR employee, NOT the other way around! WE tell HIM what WE want, HE does not tell US!  Obama Junior.  If Benson was given free reign, Lebanon would be a Socialist Town.

        Gail Heinsohn is indeed a full-fledged, lifetime member of the Benson Club, along with Kathy Murnane and numerous other blind locals. However, being the reporter for the Town newspaper, her allegiance to the Czar is a problem. Her replacement as local reporter is a project for 2013! 

         From what I have been told by several people who attended last week's Budget Workshop, that one was no better than the one on Oct. 23. Brucey had another meltdown that bordered on violent, and the Czar AGAIN treated the public with impatience and disrespect. People are ANGRY and FED UP with Benson's attitude, his despotic methods, his unilateral decisions, and his repeated violations of Town Code and Ethics. Maybe the Ethics Laws are unclear about the treatment of the public by officials, as they are unclear about MOST things, but it is still, nonetheless, unacceptable. It has gotten to the point now, that I can sit back and watch while other aggrieved residents hold the official's feet to the fire!  People are FINALLY outraged and beginning to speak out! Gee, only took four years! 

        It never ceases to amaze me that the Czar actually seems to think he is in the right when he does things that are entirely against every rule in the book. He had the gall to say that the Rules have not been followed regarding the budget, when HE is the worst rule-breaker that has ever served as Lebanon Supervisor!  Gotta LOVE that Liberal double-standard, huh? Well, between you and me and anyone else who reads this site, a lot of people are in for a LOT of surprises once the presidential election is over.  That is a PROMISE.  We may be quiet, but we are far from IDLE! 

       In the meantime, we are now only three days away from the election that will either sentence us all to a future of Socialism, or set us back on the road to recovery and the strengthening of our American traditions and Constitutional Freedoms. As usual, the Dems are playing as dirty as possible, just look at the election fraud that is already a HUGE issue!  Somalians who cannot even speak English and are more than 50% illegals, are voting. Dead people and cartoon characters are voting, and even HITLER voted already! Guess how he voted.  Voting machines that register Romney votes as being Obama votes, Democrat campaign managers teaching others how to cheat and vote more than once, etc.,etc. By the way, when did we start allowing people to vote as early as SEPTEMBER?!?!?  When did THAT dirty little law get passed?  Absentee ballots weren't good enough? 

       Now, the Obama Camp is claiming that a plane crash destroyed ballots bound for our military bases ? Yeah, and I have a bridge for sale. The media is helping to cover-up the tragedy of Benghazi to protect Obama, while the military is LIVID. So Obama and his minions are now making it next to impossible for deployed soldiers to vote at ALL. The left is exploiting children to gain votes, Obama flip-flopped on his Gay Marriage stance in order to gain the gay vote, and granted amnesty to thousands of illegals to get THEIR vote! Liberal college professors are brain-washing our kids to see Obama as a Saint rather than the demon he is. All the while, half of the American people are so uninformed and so irresponsible, that they do not or WILL not, see the truth about Barack Hussein Obama. Shove it in their faces all day long and they will turn away, all day long! DUUUUUHHH! 

         Like I always say, a vote for Obama is Treason against America. That is a FACT. Those who do not see that are fooling themselves and jeopardizing the lives and futures of everyone in this country. In 2008, I went above and beyond to convince people of the truth about Obama. In 2011, I went above and beyond to expose who and what Mike Benson really is.  You can lead an ass to water.....

===================================================================
Media Malpractice

Where is the Benghazi media feeding frenzy?

With only 5 days to go before the big election, we are finding out that the U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens repeatedly asked for additional security as he and his team felt unsafe in a country that was going through a civil war and in an area where Al Qaeda knowingly operated. We know that their requests were denied. 

As the New York Post points out, sources on the ground in Libya say they pleaded for support during the attack on the Benghazi consulate that led to the deaths of four Americans. They were allegedly told twice to "stand down." Worse, there are suggestions that significant military resources were available to counterattack, but requests for help were denied.

If true, the White House's concerted effort to blame the attack on a video crumbles, as do several other fraudulent claims. Yet, last Friday, the president boasted, "The minute I found out what was happening" in Benghazi, he ordered that everything possible be done to protect our personnel. That's either untrue, or he's being disobeyed on grave matters.

Shockingly, the media doesn't see this as news worthy and has determined that this is not relevant information for someone that wants to continue to be our Commander in Chief! 

Yet, In 2000, a Democratic operative orchestrated an "October surprise" attack on George W. Bush, revealing that 24 years earlier, he'd been arrested for drunken driving. The media went into a feeding frenzy and it dominated the headlines. 

It is amazing the lengths that the liberal media will go to to shamelessly protect their candidate. One thing is very clear, we must take it upon ourselves to cover the story that the media is ignoring and make sure that every voter in critical swing-states sees our 'Fire Obama' ad that makes the case of what a bad job President Obama has done as our Commander in Chief.
==============================================================================================

A Nation of Adult-Children? Lefties Hope So.

So, whatever happens next Tuesday, I guess Barack Obama can brag he’s sown up the kiddie-TV vote — that is, if we’re to trust the results of  Nickelodeon’ s 2012 Kids Pick the President online poll. The Washington Post reports: “More than half a million votes were cast … President Obama received 65% of the vote and former Governor Mitt Romney received 35%.”
I suppose that’s appropriate: habitués of the political and cultural Left, after all, count on the intellectual and/or emotional childishness of the population; it’s the only thing, frankly, that seals their influence. Liberals assume men and women are to be coddled and supervised like crumb-crunchers; and where folks are not already toddling along pre-pubescently, big-government secularists aim to infantilize them, reducing adults to needy, easily-controlled wards of the state.
How else to explain Obama-supporters’ decision to release a spot featuring a gaggle of fourth-graders warbling about the horrors of a world without Obama? The nursery-rhyme-style ditty whines dire poetic alarms about an Obama-less planet in which “strip mines are fun and free … sick people just die/And oil fills the sea … endless wars … we haven’t killed all the polar bears/But it’s not for lack of trying/The Earth is cracked/Big Bird is sacked/And the atmosphere is frying.”
Then there’s the slatternly campaign ad spotlighting MTV’s Lena Dunham, quavering about the ecstasy of voting for Obama the “first time“. With innuendo-dripping terminology, she purrs and sighs it was just like the glorious moment she lost her virginity.
Who settles on political tactics like this? Other than cynical and supercilious Leftist hacks who’ve concluded voters are short-sighted, driven by their hormones, callously manipulated? And who want to clone an entire generation of them.
It’s this kind of thinking that: giggles delightedly when Mrs. Joe Biden drops an inadvertent 
double entendre 
about the, umm, capacity of her insufferable husband’s manhood (while he chortles amusedly in the background); enjoys the Vice-President’s latest indelicacy when he announced to a Sarasota, FL rally, “I’m going to give you the whole load today”; smirks mischievously when “Lunch-bucket” Joe whispers an f-bomb in public and when the President himself suggests to Rolling Stone magazine that ya just gotta love the squirts cause they recognize when “the other guy” (read: Mitt Romney) is a “bullshi**er”.
Tee-hee-hee — Mommy, Daddy just said a bad word!!
Decades ago, Governor Michael Dukakis, another member of the caretaker  coalition, carped in the middle of a presidential election that “the fish rots from the head first … It starts at the top.” That adage certainly applies here: our current Chaperone-in Chief and his inner-circle not only embody, but are entrenching, all the worst puerilities of their party and our increasingly immature culture.
Barack Obama’s blame-shifting seems undying (It was George W. Bush!! ).He’s stewed in mewling victimhood his entire first term (I inherited an historic recession! The evil Republicans are blocking me! ), His behavior in the final presidential debates ranged from frantic (number two) to glaringly belligerent (number three). It’s what normally would  be found in a room full of diaper-wearers — not in the Oval Office. What about VP Biden’s surreal, funeral crack to the family of one of our slain Navy SEALs, that the hero’s testicles were the size of ”cue balls”? The stuff of statesmen? Or schoolboys?
Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush remarked, “[W]hen you blame other people and when you use profane language and when you act like you’re a 10-year-old … I don’t think … undecided voters are really moved by that.” That’s Jeb’s analysis — but for a long time now Liberals in general, and Democrats and the Obama administration in particular, are staking everything on the opposite: banking on a society composed of developmentally stunted adults. Their entire program survives only if the masses are functional orphans, captive to their whims and appetites, playthings in the hands of manipulative statists.
To Americans old enough to shave, vote, work, who ought to be nudged to carry their own weight and address their own challenges, pitchmen for Eat-Your-Vegetables-Government, instead, guarantee years of unemployment checks; and then celebrate full-blown, undiluted welfare status. They bullyingly promise citizens state-sponsored health care, cost-free contraceptives, breakfast and lunch courtesy of the public schools and “Obamaphones” (gratis cell-phones) — superciliously convinced this grab-bag of tax-payer-funded goodies will buy them perpetual power.
Thus: four dead Americans, including our ambassador, slaughtered in Benghazi, Libya? Never mind that — Look! Obama is walking on a storm-shattered, New Jersey beach! With Republican Governor Chris Christie!! Hey, now he’s back in Las Vegas chillin’ with Eva Longoria and Sheila E.!!
Like an embarrassed mall-shopper hoping to distract her unruly rugrat with the pet-store puppy, the Left dangles its media baubles, or the hysteria du jour, and expects that to occupy the common folk, keep them compliant. This is how “Progressives” see the riff-raff.
Mommy, how much is that doggy in the window?
Ironically, it’s the traditionalists or unapologetic denizens of the “religious right” who have the more elevated view of human beings. Sure, they take the “sin” issue seriously, but they also regard mankind the way our Founders did: individuals made in the image of God; crackling with potential for greatness and respectability, despite their flaws. And therefore, undeniably deserving to be treated like grown-ups at some stage in life.
The God-phobic Left, barely tolerating, when not outright rejecting, the notion of a Creator/Law-Giver, predictably treat their fellow-man like cattle — or kiddoes: burdens to be managed, not men and women to be valued and left alone. Obama and Co. hawk compassion – but contempt for their “inferiors” is really their métier.
Liberals will remain happy to spoon-feed the populace, pampering them, even wiping their bottoms — so long as they’re allowed to walk voters to the polls where they’ll help them cast their ballots for more and more and more overbearing government.

Long-Term Unemployment Rises in October to 40.6%

 

(CNSNews.com) - The long-term unemployment rate rose to 40.6 percent in October, up from September’s level of 40.1 percent of the total unemployed, according to a report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics Friday. 

Long-term unemployment is unemployment lasting for 27 consecutive weeks or longer, according to BLS. 

The government reported that just over 5 million people were unemployed for more than six months – 27 weeks – rising from September’s level of 4.8 million. 

Long-term unemployment has remained elevated since the end of the recession in 2009. In January 2009, when President Obama took office, there were 2.7 million long-term unemployed Americans. By August of that year – after the recession had ended in June – that number had crossed the 5 million mark. 

Long-term unemployment remained above 5 million people until September, when it fell to 4.8 million. 

The long-term unemployment rate – the percentage of the unemployed that have been unemployed for 27 weeks or longer – has not been below 40 percent since December 2009, suggesting that while the overall unemployment rate has declined steadily, the economy is not creating enough jobs to bring back workers lost during the recession. Instead, the weak jobs growth is merely enough to keep up with the growth in population.

READER  COMMENT:

During the Watergate investigations, President Nixon was forced to resign or be impeached for the attempted coverup of breaking into a hotel room to uncover the Democrats election strategy. This was sold as a constitution crisis by the left.
Now President Obama, Hillary Clinton, Leon Panetta, and a host of the lefts most shrill talking heads, willfully try to cover up their mendacious storyline blaming the deaths of four Americans, on a obscure video. They refused ambassador Christopher Stevens numerous requests to increase security in Benghazi, on the anniversary of 911. An Ambassador killed, and three other fine Americans dead who by all accounts refused orders to stand down, and tried to save the ambassadors life.
The disastrous foreign policy of this administration, and the deaths of these four Americans, should bring immediate calls for impeachment and several high level resignations.

BUCK MCKEON: OBAMA PUT A 'MUZZLE' ON MILITARY TO PREVENT THEM FROM SPEAKING OUT!

In a shocking and disturbing allegation, Congressman Buck McKeon says that President Obama has effectively muzzled the military to prevent them from speaking out with the truth about Benghazi-gate. Buck McKeon is the Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, so when it comes to our military and national security, he knows the facts. 

This revelation came from a direct interview with Congressman McKeon on a Heritage Foundation radio broadcast. 


Heritage Foundation Radio
Ernest Istook Show
November 2, 2012


"This is the first time I've seen where the military has been, uh, basically, silenced. When they cannot answer a direct yes or no question from the Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee."

"It's not me, it's the Congress and the responsibility we have, constitutionally, to look after our defense...We're not able to do our job if we can't get information and the commander-in-chief or somebody that he is over, has told them they cannot respond to us."

"I just think that the whole thing smacks of a coverup and the President could clear this all up if he would just go before the American people...we're getting all kinds of information but it's coming from Fox News...and yet the one that knows it all, that could clear it all up, is out campaigning and is totally silent on the issue"
- Congressman Buck McKeon (R-CA)
Chairman, House Armed Services Committee


This is an outrage! The Obama Administration is trying to completely bury any and all stories about Benghazi-gate so that it doesn't sink President Obama's re-election chances. But it's clear that the scandal is harming him as Romney is closing in on Obama in several key swing states. He's even taken a slight lead in some .

Facebook Censored the SEALs

meme2.jpg

Social Media Site Squelched Free Speech 
to Protect Obama from Benghazi-gate
Dear Fellow Americans:
This week, Facebook censored the truth.
On Sunday, we here at Special Operations Speaks posted a meme on Facebook. The post simply stated "When Obama called the SEALs, they got bin Laden, but when the SEALs called Obama, they got denied"
A few hours after the meme went up, Facebook took it down, claiming that it violated the site's terms of Rights and Responsibilities.
It looks like Obama's liberal followers in Facebook HQ are terrified of how damaging the Benghazi scandal is for the President.
We understand that Facebook can run their site however they like, but when they're trying to quietly squelch opposition to what is a clear leadership failure that resulted in the tragic deaths of some of our nation's heroes, they deserve the highest level of scrutiny.
The fact of the matter is that our post in no way violated the Facebook terms of service. It's disgusting that Mark Zuckerburg and the other co-founders of Facebook, who have strongly supported Obama since 2008, would sell out patriots who made the ultimate sacrifice – all to serve the political ambitions of the man who let them die.
As my colleague and Co-Founder of Special Operations Speaks, Colonel Dick Brauer Jr. USAF (Ret)., put it:
"Americans across the country deserve the truth about what happened in Libya, and they certainly deserve to know when people who hold the keys to a lot of their online communication are trying to keep that from them,"
"This whole affair has become the poster child for liberal arrogance and incompetence – from the President's complete leadership failure in Libya to the liberal media's desperate efforts to keep this out of the hands of the American people across the spectrum from broadcast news to social media. I hope they'll stop this shameful game and stop sacrificing the truth – and Americans abroad – in the name of politics."
Facebook's politically motivated censorship of our meme, justified by an erroneous claim that we somehow violated the site's terms of Rights and Responsibilities, is both outrageous and insulting.
We will not allow such behavior to deter us from our mission to stand up for our troops and bring the truth about Benghazi to light.
We will fight to combat any attempt by Obama and his supporters to censor the truth.
Sincerely,
larry-bailey-sig-1.jpg
Larry Bailey
Captain (SEAL), USN (Retired)
Co-Founder, Special Operations Speaks

P.S: As I write this the international publication the Daily Mail just made the claim that the SOS meme "reignited the debate over how much the administration knew about the circumstances of the Benghazi attack and could influence the result of this month's presidential election."
With the stakes this high, America cannot wait.

=========================================

Mitt Romney needs us to do the job the media will not allow him to do

Any time that the Romney/Ryan campaign brings up the issue of President Obama's mishandling of Benghazi-gate, which is a perfectly legitimate question that we should be asking of someone that wants to continue to be our Commander in Chief, the media jumps all over Romney and Ryan for 'playing politics' with the issue. Although it is not fair, the Romney/Ryan campaign has to steer clear of this issue.

This is exactly why the Romney/Ryan campaign is relying on us to make sure that voters in critical swing-states are very aware of the issues surrounding Benghazi-gate and how President Obama has failed us. 

The Obama campaign is stonewalling any and all media questions about Benghazi-gate. The administration has come to the conclusion that Libya is just too damaging to the President's re-election efforts after it was revealed that the Obama Administration was warned well ahead of time how vulnerable the team in Benghazi was, and how imminent the threat of Al Qaeda attack was. Further details are emerging that show that Ambassador Stevens and the Americans that were under siege repeatedly requested help and were denied any assistance. 

Help us assist the Romney/Ryan campaign and spread the word about what a disaster President Obama has been when it comers to national security, foreign policy and our military!

We KNOW Who and What Obama is, so who IS Mitt Romney???

Support Romney if you believe as he does….

Recently I did a piece on just a few of the things one has to believe in order to support President obama. Now, I would like to visit some highlights in the belief system of the GOP challenger, Mitt Romney. I know that many on both sides of the aisle know little about him and are playing catch-up. For too long, he was the second choice in the GOP race. After he secured the nomination, he became the “he’s not obama so I will vote for him” candidate. Following the first Presidential debate, Romney suddenly became a viable savior from socialism and creeping governmental overreach. While this is true, many still lack knowledge even as they plan to flock to the polls for him in a few days. Here are a few conversation points concerning Romney’s character and beliefs:
American Exceptionalism: While the current President has often derided the notion that America, with her unique experiment in freedom and self-rule, has been the driving force for most of the cultural, technological and spiritual growth in the last 200+ years (Read the 5000 Year Leap to truly understand), Mr. Romney seems to channel former President Ronald Reagan when speaking of her incredible uniqueness. He certainly speaks of her greatness often and of the debt of gratitude the rest of the world owes to our ancestors’ example and sacrifice.
Daddy’s Money: While people on the left would have you believe that Romney is a corporate raider and never far from his dad’s money and silver spoon, they are wrong. Though Romney is from a wealthy and politically powerful family, he actually gave away his inheritance after his father’s death. While his upbringing helped mold him, Mitt actually made his fortune himself after giving all of his inheritance to BYU. We all know that most trust-fund babies would have coasted for their entire lives (every Kennedy since Joe Sr. for instance) but not Romney. When he expects all Americans to work for their wealth, he is leading by example.
Bain Capital: The big, bad boogyman of the corporate world actually made far more jobs and opportunities than it ever had to eliminate. Romney’s venture firm actually has a long and successful history of PROVIDING the money needed for company start-up or expansion since it started up in the mid-1980s. In the 90s, they began to buy older but struggling companies, borrow money with the company’s assets as collateral, and then apply the successful Bain management formula to remake the companies into stronger entities. They were extraordinarily successful and helped found, expand or save firms like Domino’s Pizza, Sports Authority, Gymboree, Clear Channel, Staples, The Weather Channel, Burger King, Dunkin’ Donuts and many others. Think of the jobs they created and tell me that Bain is bad. In most instances, when jobs were lost or companies went under, it was due to bloated and corrupt unions that refused to renegotiate contracts in order to save the businesses. Bain created jobs while, as usual, unions destroyed them.
Mormonism: Did you know that Romney is a Mormon!?! This is one of the few things people DO know, though they lack basic information about the religion. Unlike obama who has been indoctrinated into the misguided faiths of black liberation theology and collective salvation, Romney believes in the divinity of Jesus Christ and that individuals are responsible for their own salvation. While he believes many/most of the same tenants of mainstream American Christian-based beliefs, he and other Mormons believe Jesus appeared to followers in North America after his Resurrection. Their religion also does a far better job than some others at trying to spread the word as their missionaries (whom we all know and should admire) go door-to-door in order to spread the word of Jesus Christ.
Individuals often try to spread misinformation about lack of rights for women or minorities in Mormonism. They also ridicule the undergarments Mormons wear (“magic” underwear) that, in reality, are simply to provide a constant yet private reminder of their faith. (Actually it makes sense. If they are uncomfortable, your faith is always in the back of your mind and, were one to consider straying or cheating, I would think such garments may even act as a last-ditch reminder of vows to God. Not a bad thing in this day and age.) The biggie that people love to throw around is the multiple wives. Yes, some Mormons took part in this to enhance their numbers as their group was small (after much murder and persecution by other religions), but this was disavowed by their church long ago. Though some branches still try to adhere to it, most do not. All religions have factions that stray off the reservation so one should be careful to paint with a broad brush about Mormons as a whole.
While I may not agree with some of the facets of Romney’s religion, I respect his seemingly sincere adherence to it and find after my research that I agree with him far more on religion, salvation and personal responsibility than I do obama. Do you?
Defense: The administration over the last four years has decimated our military, both in numbers and stature in an attempt to level the international playing field. Romney’s plan to restore our strength and standing in the global community is well stated.
 Business Experience: Who do you think can lead a country out of a severe recession? A man who was raised a Marxist, studied law and was then a community (dis)organizer? Or a man with both business and law degrees from Harvard (never practiced as an attorney so that is probably a plus), made his own money through helping start/grow companies, saved a U.S. Winter Olympics on the verge of ruin, was the Governor of Massachusetts and who now wants to take a vast pay-cut to save America?
Five Point Plan: Unlike obama who has yet to offer a glimpse of his plans for a second term, Romney has outlined five issues that will be the focus of his presidency:
  1. Energy Independence (FINALLY)
  2. Fair International Trade
  3. Improvement in Schools & Job Training (instead of lining the pockets of unions)
  4. Cut the Deficit/Size of Government/National Debt
  5. Champion Small Business (We did build it)
Russia & China: A President Romney will take on an ever-increasing threat of communist USSR Russia and China. While obama has bowed to China in every way and promised Putin more freedoms in his second term, Romney has stated clearly that America will once again be the force of good to counter their evil ways. Without us, who?
Muslim Brotherhood & Iran: Again, while obama has actually supported the Brotherhood and tried to restore diplomatic ties and freedoms to Iran, Romney has plainly shown that he knows these players for the evil they are and will lead through strength in dealing with them. He has also proven his devotion to Israel, our recently forsaken ally, and will restore the bonds with no “daylight” between. Why we would want to distance ourselves from the only sane country over there is beyond me.
Taxes: Romney believes that taxes are too high, too unfair and too confusing. He wants to eliminate loopholes while lowering taxes for all, and simultaneously broaden the number of individuals paying taxes, thus increase revenue (it certainly worked well for Reagan). President obama has enlarged the tax code, added IRS agents (also giving them collection duties for socialized medicine), and has constantly stated his re-election would be a mandate for higher taxes.
Obamacare: Romney will repeal socialized medicine immediately before it can destroy the greatest healthcare system in the world. 
Auto Bailout: Romney favored a controlled bankruptcy with governmental guarantees for creditors so that the American car companies could shed (union pension) debt and then emerge streamlined and stronger. Instead, obama shoveled billions into the industry to save not jobs but UNIONS. The companies are now a joke and on the verge of collapse, non-union workers were shafted along with bondholders and creditors, and the unions actually took control of the companies. Pick a side there please.
Charity: Romney, as mentioned before, donated his inheritance to charity. He also donates millions per year to a multitude of charities. Recent estimates place his donations at around 30% of his annual income while obama has only donated around 6% (and this only started in 2000 when he began his quest for power). Worst of all are the charitable donations of Joe Biden who, in the last ten years, has donated approximately 0.2% of his income. All in all, Romney has donated over a thousand times more to charity than obama and Biden combined.
 Oil and Coal Industries: As mentioned before, obama has done everything in his power to destroy oil and coal. Romney, on the other hand, will approve the Keystone Pipeline, lift the illegal moratorium on off-shore drilling, permit shale oil production, open federal lands to exploration including Anwar, and remove barriers to safe and clean gas, oil and coal energy development.
Border security: Romney wants to increase border security and remove illegal aliens while obama rolls out the red carpet (DREAM Act anyone?). obama’s administration has aided druglords in killing American border guards as well as Mexican citizens. I am willing to bet that Romney will not continue that policy either.
Defense: obama has our military the weakest and smallest is has been in decades and wants to downsize further as he evens out the power in the world. Romney has promised to avoid obama’s impending military cuts and actually increase the size and strength of our armed forces. Which do you want? Additionally, obama has actually denied aid to our soldiers as they were in harm’s way and directly led to their deaths. In any universe, do you envision a President Romney forsaking our troops? Perhaps this is why nearly 70% of men and women in uniform support him instead of their current “Commander”-in-Chief.
 Animal Cruelty: Romney once had the family dog ride in a protected, wind-shielded animal carrier on top of the family car, far safer than the millions of dogs that daily traverse the roadways in the back of pickup trucks. Our President, on the other hand, has admittedly eaten dog intentionally in his younger days. When weighing the two sins, I am siding with Candidate Romney and I am sure Scooby Doo would too.
So now you have a little sampling of each side of the aisle. Where do you stand? In what do you believe? We are on the precipice of monumental change in America. Will we reverse course and refocus on our core beliefs and the governmental intentions of our Founders or complete the job of remaking us into a mere shadow of our former glory? The decision lies with you, America. Our ancestors, who have sacrificed all, are watching.

As the sixth-great grandson of American patriot and Revolutionary War hero Christopher Gadsden, I feel it is my duty to speak fondly of America’s greatness and stand ready to defend her against all adversaries. Sadly, I must rail against the vileness and evil of the leftists, progressives, Marxist, socialists and idiots in general now threatening to destroy our great nation. If you support this aim, please spread the word.

Let the Hijacking Of Our National Elections Begin!

 
There are two, recent stories getting a bit of attention during the last couple of days. The first report deals with a planeload of absentee ballots, destined for delivery to military men and women serving in Afghanistan, having been destroyed in a plane crash in Shindad Air Force Base on October 19. Some 4,700 pounds of mail was reported to have been burned in the resulting conflagration. A “top official” of the Federal Voting Assistance Program “recommended that election officials resend a new ballot to anyone who requested one since the first ballot may have been destroyed in the crash and fire.”
Great advice. Presuming the news of this accident reached Afghanistan the same day it broke, what are the chances that every service person, waiting for their absentee ballot, had even learned of the crash? Or that replacement ballots were requested by these military men and women? Or, once reissued, ballots would reach the military and be returned in time for the election? Why not reissue all of the ballots immediately and send an urgent delivery to them?
The second account deals with an incident reported several days ago. Two, Ohio volunteer poll workers, wishing to remain anonymous, were disturbed by van loads of Somali immigrants being bused to their polling place for early voting. The poll workers were not troubled because there was assistance given for getting out the vote; Ohio boasts the second largest Somali population in the United States. The poll workers were distressed because there was clear and questionable behavior on display.
Most of the immigrants arriving to cast votes observably could not speak English. Human Events offers the following information: “According to the Somali Community Association of Ohio’s web site, over 45,000 Somalis live in Ohio. Only 40 percent have become citizens of the United States, and only 25 percent speak English well enough to get a job.”Only Democrat translators were available. There wasn’t a single Republican translator included in the “assistance” offered. Interpreters are forbidden, by law, from influencing voters in any way. The Democrat translators were observed, however, deliberately instructing these voters how to vote solely for the Democrat ticket. No mechanism exists in Ohio to determine if these voters were even legal residents.
The Republican-dominated state House of Ohio had passed strict voter registration laws in 2011. The state’s Senate, however, had overturned it. How, then, to determine whether or not these clueless Somali voters were legally casting ballots? One of the poll workers gave evidence that when a Mitt Romney bus later pulled up to the polling place, Democrat operatives outside, handing out slate cards to the Somalis they’d dragged out to vote, surrounded the Romney bus: “They yelled and swarmed around its door when anyone attempted to exit the bus.”Considering that it is exclusively conservative intimidation being trolled for, it is doubtful that the OSCE would have been of much help in this instance.
This administration has perfected classic techniques that have long been classics in the Liberal arsenal. Definitive projection, in the psychological sense, has become the Democrat weapon of choice; simply accuse opponents of doing what they, themselves, do. The military is not only being gutted, it is being defanged with respect to nation-wide voting procedure. The voter registration process has been neutered. States are not permitted to examine or enforce their own laws. The State Department is threatening states, such as Texas, from protecting itself from foreign voter interference (i.e. the OSCE) yet it does nothing to prevent voter intimidation perpetrated by their own stooges. The will of the people be damned.
Governor Romney is going to have to secure the presidential win well beyond any margin of error. The fight is only going to get more contentious and consequential during the next week. And the “fun and games” have only just begun.

BREAKING: Obama Friendly “Fieldworks” Registers Hitler to Vote in Ohio

 
Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, and the starting lineup of the Dallas Cowboys, including Quarterback Tony Romo, were names that ACORN workers attempted to register to vote during the 2008 presidential election.
The ensuing outrage sparked a voter registration fraud scandal that helped lead to the activist group’s demise, and put new focus on the integrity of third-party voter registration efforts during Presidential elections.
Now, four years later, the name: John Adolf Hitler, was one of those turned in on a voter registration form collected by another group in Cincinnati, according to the Hamilton County Board of Elections.
“It’s certainly not a joke. In Ohio, that kind of activity is a felony,” says Alex Triantafilou, an Elections Board member who also serves as the Chairman of the county’s Republican party.
“Any person who would engage in that kind of conduct with something as serious to our democracy as voting, is highly irresponsible and potentially criminal…We have someone doctoring registrations, and the next step would be a serious move toward fraudulent voting. We are worried about it.”
The listing, “Adolf Hitler, John…666 Heltz…la,” puts his supposed residence in Los Angeles.
It was part of a batch of roughly 200 voter registrations that election officials say were flagged as possibly fraudulent, forged, or duplicated by the group that collected them, FieldWorks, a private Washington, D.C. based firm.
FieldWorks, says it works largely with Democratic candidates, causes and progressive organizations collecting signatures for voter registration or ballot initiatives across the country.
“We have a zero tolerance for fraud,” FieldWorks co-owner Chris Galloway told Fox News, defending his firm.
“Not only is the employee committing fraud, but he is stealing from us.”
The case echoes multiple voter registration fraud allegations against the now defunct community-organizing group ACORN, and FieldWorks says it has fired two workers in Cincinnati whom they suspect may have been forging cards.
Galloway told Fox News that it was his firm that first brought the registration of ” Hitler” to the attention of election authorities.
“I like to think that we do a lot of good work,” Galloway told us. “A lot of people have gotten a black eye. We’ve seen the stories out of Florida, on ACORN…we want to make these operations, which in the past have not been great, to focus on quality control.”
He says the firm scrutinizes every voter registration form that it turned in to election boards, and even gives canvassers GPS cell phones to ensure that they “are not at their home forging applications.”
ACORN workers had admitted they did just that.
Gathering signatures was too difficult, said one ACORN worker in Seattle, so he went home and filled out the forms while he “smoked marijuana.”

The Nixon Tapes (Watergate) v. the Obama Tapes (Benghazi)


Many of you are too young to remember the Watergate Hearings. They were on TV all day, every day. The Democrats wanted to rub our faces in the scandal. After President Nixon’s resignation, Vice-President Gerald Ford pardoned the former president. This didn’t sit well with the American people. In the end, we got Jimmy Carter.
The June 1972 break-in at the Democratic National Committee headquarters at the Watergate office complex in Washington, D.C., was covered up by the Nixon administration. The scandal eventually led to the resignation of President Richard Nixon on August 9, 1974. The scandal also resulted in the indictment, trial, conviction, and imprisonment of 43 people, including dozens of Nixon’s top administration officials.
In July 1973, as evidence mounted against the president’s staff about the break-in at the Democratic headquarters, it was revealed that President Nixon had recorded many conversations in his office. Recordings from these tapes implicated the president, revealing he had attempted to cover up the break-in. Before long, and after a lot of legal stonewalling from the Nixon Administration, the Supreme Court ruled that the president had to hand over the tapes to government investigators; he ultimately complied.
Now it seems that there are Obama tapes of the Benghazi attacks. Will they be released, or will Obama and Co. stonewall through the courts to keep them under wraps arguing Executive Privilege, Separation of Powers, and Checks and Balances like Nixon did?
Here’s the latest from Fox News:
Sean Hannity was debating liberal Juan Williams Tuesday on the Benghazi massacre. Hannity revealed this on the audio tapes of Tyrone Woods begging for air support on 9-11, “My sources tell me they’re pretty damning, Juan. They’re begging for help.”
Tyrone Woods was screaming for air support and Barack Obama did nothing.
Then he lied about it.
Hannity later said there are three tapes the Obama administration is holding onto including audio of Tyrone Woods begging for air support.
Will the press in 2012 be as relentless as the press was in 1973 and 1974 when it reported on Watergate, the tapes, and Nixon not making the tapes available?

Will we find portions of the Benghazi tapes erased like the infamous 18½ minute erasure in one of the tapes that some people speculate had recorded incriminating information?

The media have been protecting President Obama for nearly four years. If a Republican President were in office, the media would be in attack mode. So far, President Obama is not worried because his media friends have lost their journalistic fire. Truth no longer matters to them.

Biden Opens Mouth and Inserts Foot



As many times as Vice President Joe Biden puts his foot in his mouth, I’m not sure if he needs a dentist or a podiatrist to take care of his teeth. If there is a poster person for the greatest number of dumb political statements, Biden has to be it.
Black Americans have been fighting a civil rights war for over a century on the issue of race. There are still a significant number of white Americans that look down on anyone with a different skin color than their own. In fact, a number of them look down on anyone from any ethnic background but their own.
Barack Obama has only added fuel to the racial civil rights issues by intentionally widening the racial division that still exists in our country. Even though Obama is half white, he has clearly demonstrated his racial prejudice against whites. In the minds of many, the main or perhaps only civil rights issue is race.
Then you have millions of legal and illegal Hispanics in America who believe the current civil rights issue revolves around them and their plight. Even though 11-15 million of them are here illegally, they are demanding to be made U.S. citizens and granted all of the rights that go with citizenship. Yet, EVERY legal immigrant I know is against granting them citizenship. They believe that the Hispanics should go through the same legal processes they went through.
Feminists believe the number one civil rights issue is women’s rights and health. They want their right to savagely murder their unborn children because they cannot control their own sexual pleasures. They want special health privileges because they are women.
But if you ask Vice President Joe Biden what THE civil rights issue is  today, he’ll have to say it’s the right of transgenders not to be discriminated against. On Tuesday, Biden campaigned in Florida where he met Linda Carragher Bourne who was the mother of a former Miss Transgender New England. While talking to her, reporters overheard Biden tell the woman that transgender discrimination was the “civil rights issue of our time.”
Not sure if they heard him right, some of the reporters followed up with the woman and asked her if that is what Biden told her and she confirmed the statement. She then told reporters:
“[I told him that] a lot of my friends are being killed, and they don’t have the civil rights yet. These guys [the President and Vice President] are going to make it happen.”
So according to Joe Biden, if you’re black, Hispanic or female, you better move to the back of the civil rights line and let all of the people that have no clue what sex they are move to the front. Theirs is now the battle that the Obama administration will champion, at least according to good ole reliable Joe.
As much as his feet have been in his mouth, it’s no wonder that he doesn’t have some kind of foot-in-mouth disease. And the scary part is that if anything happened to Obama while he’s still president, Biden would take over the White House. That would be like placing a mentally challenged person over MIT. And I can see the sign on his door:
Open mouth – Insert foot.

The Republic May Survive Obama. Will It Survive This?
