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.



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 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?

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!



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 Jordan, Lebanon 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.
Fatah [ˈfætə]
(Government, Politics & Diplomacy) Al. a Palestinian terrorist organization, founded in 1956, with the aim of destroying the state of Israel: it has splintered into rival factions since 1988

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 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 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?



Use It Or Lose It: The First Amendment

“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.

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 21st century? 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...

The evidence is in and you are the jury, what will be the verdict come Nov. 6th?...... It's all up to you!

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!


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 – Tom Daschle, Obama’s pick for Health and Human Services Secretary, could not be confirmed because he was a tax cheat, 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 – he took American tax dollars to resettle thousands of Palestinians from Gaza to the United States , 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.




              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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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.

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 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….
“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.



Look for announcement of temporary halt to uranium enrichment

Published: 10/04/2012 at 3:52 PM

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.


Don’t watch ABC until after the elections!!

By Now, You Probably Could Use a Smile. Here's one for you!



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.

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

Published: 1 day ago

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

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.
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
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!!

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

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


Tonight's Links:

This first video is longer than what I usually post, but the information is SO important, that I'm hoping you will take the time to watch.





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.




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


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. Putnam, is 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!   



This is OUR America!!!


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.
A 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
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:
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 is mistaken; 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:
Donating Blood
Gun Shop
Cashing a Check
Adoption Agency
Social Security Office
Pawn Shops
Using a Credit Card
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.”
