Barack Obama vs. The Law [add-on]

The Right Side of Life has a report about an upcoming documentary called "Barack Obama vs. The Law


Evil Conservative Radio and NMATV have teamed up to produce an upcoming documentary, “Barack Obama v. The Law”:
Dr. Orly Taitz, Attorney Mario Apuzzo, and WOR talk show host Steve Malzberg make the case about Barack Obama and his eligibility for the presidency. Produced and directed for NMATV by Bob Parks.

RedState also chimes in:

I am not personally convinced the birth certificate is an issue, but I have to say, I have no leg to stand on but my “feeling” that it isn’t relevant because we’ve not seen actual birth certificate to butress my “feeling.” So, what do I tell people that insist this is an important issue?
I have nothing logical to tell them to disabuse them of their notion because I can’t prove them wrong.
So, why won’t Obama just publish the real birth certificate?

The Fox Nation Debuts

Interesting new website over at Fox News.com. The Fox Nation. LOTS of great articles to read and comment on at the site. Now, I have to go back and read the comments of the two funniest "Fox Forum" headline articles.

Is Obama Too Bright To Be President?

HA HA HA HA HAAAAA!!! What a HILARIOUS title! A teleprompter Resident in the White House who only knows how to read a script written by his cronies is "too bright?" Certainly not the words that I would apply to ObamaFRAUD.


More Roosevelt… Less Jimmy Carter… that’s what this brand needs!
Folks, there’s been a lot of scrutiny of President Obama in these first 100 days. It goes with the territory. The attention is brutal no matter who’s in the Oval Office and it always will be.

In the last week and a half, Obama’s said and done things and appeared in ways that could lay the foundation for a negative brand image that no one will be able to reverse.

Exposure is something most marketers covet . . .but over-exposure especially of the wrong features can be deadly for a personal brand.
That is why, Barack Obama –whom I’ve called a first-rate poli-marketer (see the past few weeks FOX Forum posts here)– had better stop behaving like Jimmy Carter and start emulating Roosevelt.

ALAN COLMES: Leave My President Alone


This excerpt is priceless:

I have a great idea. Leave the guy alone. Yes, LEAVE OBAMA ALONE. I’m not suggesting we not hold our government officials accountable, but how about giving the new chief time to find out where the men’s room is in the White House?

Oh Alan...I for one sure DON'T miss you on the old "Hannity and Colmes" show. Hannity's show is SO MUCH BETTER WITHOUT YOU!

Congresswoman Bachmann & Freedom

Is my latest heroine! How absolutely refreshing it was to listen to her interview with Glenn Beck on the radio yesterday!! She is one true voice in Congress (where many still remain totally clueless) that represents the millions and millions of people who did not vote for unqualified, radical neo-Marxist Obama! Sane people don't want to see his equally unqualified elf assistant - the tax cheat and power grabbing Timothy Geithner - lead us to a worsened economic downturn or get our nation into some sort of a global currency!!

Michelle Bachmann gets it!! She gets us!!

Here's the link: Glenn Talks With Congresswoman Bachmann

Here's the entire interview:


March 27, 2009 - 12:05 ET

Congressman Michele Bachmann

GLENN: 888 727 BECK. Congressman Michele Bachmann is with us now. Congressman, how are you?

CONGRESSWOMAN BACHMANN: Good morning, Glenn, good afternoon, good evening, good to see you.

GLENN: How are things?

CONGRESSWOMAN BACHMANN: Well, things are hot on the front lines in Washington, D.C. There's a lot happening, a lot of pots are boiling over and we're very concerned about what we're seeing.

GLENN: I want to talk to you a little bit about Timothy Geithner. Explain to America what is happening with how close are we to having Timothy Geithner be able to shut down private businesses if they feel it's a threat to the economy?

CONGRESSWOMAN BACHMANN: Well, it's very close. That's exactly what was before our committee yesterday. As if there wasn't enough on the treasury secretary's plate, he wants to broaden his power to a level never seen before and it's President Obama that's giving this directive. So this is at his directive that now the treasury secretary would have the authority to come in and essentially nationalize the private business before it's at the point of failure. He would be able to go and nationalize it and then also reset all of the employee wage contracts.

GLENN: Your question was so fantastic. Where in the Constitution do you have the right? How did he answer that?

CONGRESSWOMAN BACHMANN: He did not give me an answer regarding where in the Constitution it is. So I repeatedly went back to the same question, "Not there. Where." He was saying congress passed a law that said and I said, no, not that; where in the Constitution. Because he raises his right hand and takes an oath to the Constitution as treasury secretary, as I do as a member of congress. Everything that we need to everything we do needs to be in accordance with the Constitution. Congress can pass an unconstitutional law. If we pass an unconstitutional law, then he should not be working to uphold that law.

GLENN: Michele, I am concerned that we are on the verge of transformation that we may never get back.

CONGRESSWOMAN BACHMANN: Yes, I am, too. I share that concern. Glenn, it's that serious. It's almost like radio shows like yours are the committees of correspondence that the Revolutionary War had where we're trying to get the word out to people who still love the fundamental freedoms that our country was founded upon.

GLENN: Hang on just a second.

CONGRESSWOMAN BACHMANN: It is that serious that we're about to lose it.

GLENN: Hang on just a second. Congressman, here's the problem. The Democrats and the Republicans have done so much damage and played so many games with the American people saying they are for term limits and then never doing them, saying that they are for smaller spending and then not doing it, saying that they are for protecting us in every way possible but then not doing it, saying that they are for border security but then not doing it, saying they are going to enforce our laws but they are not doing it. I mean, the list goes on and on and on and on. We are playing now with nitroglycerin and it is about to explode and there are people like me that believe we are truly in this area, it is we are truly ready to lose our country if we don't do anything and it's not a partisan issue. It is, there are a lot of Republicans that are lining up and doing the give act and everything else. They are right along with them on many cases. So

CONGRESSWOMAN BACHMANN: It's terrible and I'm glad you brought it up. It's going to come to the house next week. I urge your listeners, make calls today to tell your member of congress, do not vote for that thing. But let me tell you, there's something that's happening this week in congress that could be the eventual unraveling for our freedom and it was this. I have also asked the treasury secretary and Ben Bernanke, the Federal Reserve chair, if they would categorically denounce taking the United States off of the dollar and putting us on an international global currency because as you know, Russia, China, Brazil, India, South Africa, many nations have wind up now and have called for an international global currency, a one world currency and they want to get off of the dollar as the reserve currency.

GLENN: Most people don't understand, Michele, what that means.

CONGRESSWOMAN BACHMANN: What that means is all of the countries in the world would have a single currency. We would give up the dollar as our currency and we would just go with a one world currency and now for the first time we're seeing major countries like China, India, Russia, countries like that calling for a one world currency and they want this discussion to occur at the G20. So I asked both the treasury secretary and the Federal Reserve chair if they would categorically denounce this. The reason why is because if we give up the dollar as our standard and commingle the value of a dollar with the value of coinage in Zimbabwe, that dilutes our money supply. We lose control over our economy and economic liberty is inextricably entwined with political liberty. Once you lose your economic freedom, you've lost your political freedom and then we are no more as an exceptional nation as we always have been. So this is imperative. Well, what happened, the day after I asked that question for the treasury secretary, secretary Geithner went before the council on foreign relations and the same subject came up. After that meeting after he categorically denounced it to me, he said to the council on foreign relations he would be open to this proposal of a single currency, of expanding the international monetary funds' special drawing down rates. That's what they're called. And this created a huge firestorm which the value of the dollar literally tumbled upon his words when he said that.

GLENN: Right. And then somebody said, "I think you want to revisit that again." And he did and he said, "Well, no, I don't mean..." look, Congressman Bachmann, you know and I know with the amount of money that we're printing, the amount of spending that we're doing, there is no way now to pay back what we are now on the hook for. There's no way to do it. So they

CONGRESSWOMAN BACHMANN: No, that's why we have to reel back in every commitment that we've made. It hasn't all been spent yet, Glenn.

GLENN: How will you do that? How are you going to Congressman, you are not going to do that unless the people I mean, two million, five million people go to Washington and I don't know I mean, look. You know, I just said

CONGRESSWOMAN BACHMANN: I agree, but they need to. The people at this point, they need to be armed with knowledge. People need to be armed with knowledge, which you are giving them and then what they have to do is use that knowledge. They need to use it, band together just like these tea parties people are doing. This is very effective. And come to Washington and let the establishment know, "Look, we love this country. We love it based on freedom. We don't want to go with an international currency and we don't want to yield our freedom and be bankrupt." And unfortunately the current administration really does believe in a social welfare state and they really do believe in economic equivalency which is not America.

GLENN: May I just say the frustration that most Americans have or the same frustration that I have, I don't want to believe that there are people in our country that are intentionally doing these things. I don't want to believe that there are people in our country that would trash our dollar like this. And what's going to happen is if you start to talk about a global currency which I'm telling you there's no way out of what we're doing now besides devaluing the dollar to pay off our debt and then have a new currency. There's just no other way.

CONGRESSWOMAN BACHMANN: But we can stop that.

GLENN: Wait a minute. Congresswoman, what happens is when you stand up and when you say those things, then you're deemed a kook. Then you're deemed a militia member. And there are too many people in America that will still listen to the mainstream media. They will still listen to, you know, to those in Washington on both sides of the aisle that say, "Oh, no, well, that's never going to happen." And so they sit there and do nothing. And those who do want to do something are afraid because they don't want to be deemed a kook. And they also are tired of being played by politicians in Washington.

CONGRESSWOMAN BACHMANN: Well, Glenn, I have experienced that throughout my political career being labeled a kook. It just happened again in a big story in the Minneapolis Star Tribune. But all we have to do is point to the treasury secretary on tape, on camera. This is not Michele Bachmann being a kook. This is our treasury secretary on tape and on camera. And also we now have countries across the world asking for this. That's why I went to my fellow colleagues and I dropped a bill day before yesterday that would bind the president's hands, that wouldn't allow him to enter into a treaty or an international agreement to take us off the dollar and put us on an international currency because once that you've exactly stated it right. The president is committing us so much now and congress is committing us to so much spending that the only way out will be for him to continue to print money and have wild inflation. And once that collapses, then it's a global currency. Well, then we are no more as a nation. We cease at that point. So we still are at a point of pulling back but I mean, right now the secondhand is right up to midnight on our freedom and so people have to act. This is not just a radio show call or this is not a gimmick. This is reality now. This is our call to arms. So that's why I dropped this bill so that which means I filed this bill on the floor so that we can get this passed so we can bind the president or his designee so they cannot put us into a global currency. /quote

P.S. Recall the line that Jim Carrey often used in the movie, The Truman Show? He would greet his neighbors with, "Good morning. And if I don't see ya - good afternoon and good night." Near the end of the movie Truman decides to trump his fear of the ocean (because his (fake) dad allegedly drowned there) and he risks his own life to brave the extreme effects of a created storm at sea. He does this for two purposes - and two purposes only. He wants to know the truth and live in FREEDOM! He works so desperately to learn the truth about his existence and to be free! He gets to the point of standing at the staircase which would exit him from the movie set. Heretofore, he had spent his entire life in a Matrix-like, blue pill swallowed movie set. The staircase would lead to him some unknowns, but it would lead him out to reality.

The "director" of the movie who had him under control (neo-Marxism!) for his entire life and tried to play god - Christoff - warns him that he will get hurt out there. But if he stays, then he will remain safe under the rule (tyranny) of his direction (squelching all of Truman's freedoms) and the safety of the movie set (prison) he created for him. Truman thinks about it for a bit, then says something like "if I don't see ya, good morning, good afternoon and good night."

A "Drive By" Blog Post

Isn't that pic the best? The "Prez Dispenser" - Ha ha ha! Even though the situation in America is dire right now, sometimes ya just gotta laugh!

About today's post. I try not to do this very often, but sometimes it is necessary. What is it? Well, I will just call it "drive by" blogging. When I'm REALLY busy with a project, family, or just plain awful "spring cleaning" work, I try to locate some of the best blog posts of the day and post them here.

Fortunately, The Right Side of Life certainly makes things easier! Phil often has "headlines" up each day which include so many of the articles, issues, and happenings that I would love to blog about!

Of course, Gateway Pundit always has LOTS OF POSTS up each day. I wonder if there is just one blogger over there or a team of them?

Lastly, I discovered something quite weird in the comment section of Orly Taitz's blog, Defend Our Freedoms. Apparently, a Pakistani website has a group of world leaders listed on a discussion forum. Scroll down and you will read:

President of USA (44th) Barrack Hussain [sic] Obama of Democratic Party* (Kenyan born) (Since 20th Jan 2009)

I don't know a whole lot about this website, but the post and thread that this is in is supposed to be for "FPSC Recruitment Tests." It is under the category that reads, "General Knowledge, Quizzes, IQ Tests - A zone where General Knowledge related to this exam can be shared. Surveys and Threads with polls and questions that require answers can be Posted here."

The forum is labeled "CSS Forum" - which stands for "Civil Service of Pakistan."

Anyone out there have more information about this?

Hmmmm....you would think that answers about leaders on a civil service test would be accurate...right?

Op-Ed Contributor
Dear A.I.G., I Quit!

Published: March 24, 2009
The following is a letter sent on Tuesday by Jake DeSantis, an executive vice president of the American International Group’s financial products unit, to Edward M. Liddy, the chief executive of A.I.G.

DEAR Mr. Liddy,

It is with deep regret that I submit my notice of resignation from A.I.G. Financial Products. I hope you take the time to read this entire letter. Before describing the details of my decision, I want to offer some context:

I am proud of everything I have done for the commodity and equity divisions of A.I.G.-F.P. I was in no way involved in — or responsible for — the credit default swap transactions that have hamstrung A.I.G. Nor were more than a handful of the 400 current employees of A.I.G.-F.P. Most of those responsible have left the company and have conspicuously escaped the public outrage.

After 12 months of hard work dismantling the company — during which A.I.G. reassured us many times we would be rewarded in March 2009 — we in the financial products unit have been betrayed by A.I.G. and are being unfairly persecuted by elected officials. In response to this, I will now leave the company and donate my entire post-tax retention payment to those suffering from the global economic downturn. My intent is to keep none of the money myself.

I take this action after 11 years of dedicated, honorable service to A.I.G. I can no longer effectively perform my duties in this dysfunctional environment, nor am I being paid to do so. Like you, I was asked to work for an annual salary of $1, and I agreed out of a sense of duty to the company and to the public officials who have come to its aid. Having now been let down by both, I can no longer justify spending 10, 12, 14 hours a day away from my family for the benefit of those who have let me down.

You and I have never met or spoken to each other, so I’d like to tell you about myself. I was raised by schoolteachers working multiple jobs in a world of closing steel mills. My hard work earned me acceptance to M.I.T., and the institute’s generous financial aid enabled me to attend. I had fulfilled my American dream.

I started at this company in 1998 as an equity trader, became the head of equity and commodity trading and, a couple of years before A.I.G.’s meltdown last September, was named the head of business development for commodities. Over this period the equity and commodity units were consistently profitable — in most years generating net profits of well over $100 million. Most recently, during the dismantling of A.I.G.-F.P., I was an integral player in the pending sale of its well-regarded commodity index business to UBS. As you know, business unit sales like this are crucial to A.I.G.’s effort to repay the American taxpayer.

The profitability of the businesses with which I was associated clearly supported my compensation. I never received any pay resulting from the credit default swaps that are now losing so much money. I did, however, like many others here, lose a significant portion of my life savings in the form of deferred compensation invested in the capital of A.I.G.-F.P. because of those losses. In this way I have personally suffered from this controversial activity — directly as well as indirectly with the rest of the taxpayers.

I have the utmost respect for the civic duty that you are now performing at A.I.G. You are as blameless for these credit default swap losses as I am. You answered your country’s call and you are taking a tremendous beating for it.

But you also are aware that most of the employees of your financial products unit had nothing to do with the large losses. And I am disappointed and frustrated over your lack of support for us. I and many others in the unit feel betrayed that you failed to stand up for us in the face of untrue and unfair accusations from certain members of Congress last Wednesday and from the press over our retention payments, and that you didn’t defend us against the baseless and reckless comments made by the attorneys general of New York and Connecticut.

My guess is that in October, when you learned of these retention contracts, you realized that the employees of the financial products unit needed some incentive to stay and that the contracts, being both ethical and useful, should be left to stand. That’s probably why A.I.G. management assured us on three occasions during that month that the company would “live up to its commitment” to honor the contract guarantees.

That may be why you decided to accelerate by three months more than a quarter of the amounts due under the contracts. That action signified to us your support, and was hardly something that one would do if he truly found the contracts “distasteful.”

That may also be why you authorized the balance of the payments on March 13.

At no time during the past six months that you have been leading A.I.G. did you ask us to revise, renegotiate or break these contracts — until several hours before your appearance last week before Congress.

I think your initial decision to honor the contracts was both ethical and financially astute, but it seems to have been politically unwise. It’s now apparent that you either misunderstood the agreements that you had made — tacit or otherwise — with the Federal Reserve, the Treasury, various members of Congress and Attorney General Andrew Cuomo of New York, or were not strong enough to withstand the shifting political winds.

You’ve now asked the current employees of A.I.G.-F.P. to repay these earnings. As you can imagine, there has been a tremendous amount of serious thought and heated discussion about how we should respond to this breach of trust.

As most of us have done nothing wrong, guilt is not a motivation to surrender our earnings. We have worked 12 long months under these contracts and now deserve to be paid as promised. None of us should be cheated of our payments any more than a plumber should be cheated after he has fixed the pipes but a careless electrician causes a fire that burns down the house.

Many of the employees have, in the past six months, turned down job offers from more stable employers, based on A.I.G.’s assurances that the contracts would be honored. They are now angry about having been misled by A.I.G.’s promises and are not inclined to return the money as a favor to you.

The only real motivation that anyone at A.I.G.-F.P. now has is fear. Mr. Cuomo has threatened to “name and shame,” and his counterpart in Connecticut, Richard Blumenthal, has made similar threats — even though attorneys general are supposed to stand for due process, to conduct trials in courts and not the press.

So what am I to do? There’s no easy answer. I know that because of hard work I have benefited more than most during the economic boom and have saved enough that my family is unlikely to suffer devastating losses during the current bust. Some might argue that members of my profession have been overpaid, and I wouldn’t disagree.

That is why I have decided to donate 100 percent of the effective after-tax proceeds of my retention payment directly to organizations that are helping people who are suffering from the global downturn. This is not a tax-deduction gimmick; I simply believe that I at least deserve to dictate how my earnings are spent, and do not want to see them disappear back into the obscurity of A.I.G.’s or the federal government’s budget. Our earnings have caused such a distraction for so many from the more pressing issues our country faces, and I would like to see my share of it benefit those truly in need.

On March 16 I received a payment from A.I.G. amounting to $742,006.40, after taxes. In light of the uncertainty over the ultimate taxation and legal status of this payment, the actual amount I donate may be less — in fact, it may end up being far less if the recent House bill raising the tax on the retention payments to 90 percent stands. Once all the money is donated, you will immediately receive a list of all recipients.

This choice is right for me. I wish others at A.I.G.-F.P. luck finding peace with their difficult decision, and only hope their judgment is not clouded by fear.

Mr. Liddy, I wish you success in your commitment to return the money extended by the American government, and luck with the continued unwinding of the company’s diverse businesses — especially those remaining credit default swaps. I’ll continue over the short term to help make sure no balls are dropped, but after what’s happened this past week I can’t remain much longer — there is too much bad blood. I’m not sure how you will greet my resignation, but at least Attorney General Blumenthal should be relieved that I’ll leave under my own power and will not need to be “shoved out the door.”

Dear A.I.G., I Quit!

GLENN: Fantastic. What was it the president said? Didn't the president say that he was no longer going to let us be ruled by fear? Where is anyone on the left! Where are the good Democrats on the left! I believe in you. I don't agree with you, but I believe in you. I believe you're a human being and a thinking American, not just a zombie. Where are you? Where are you? What have we turned into? We are now -- we now have ACORN lining up buses, a media that does not expose that the buses were rented and paid for and organized by ACORN! We have them going to poor districts, rounding up a bunch of people: Hey, you've got to come with us; you want to do it; quick, come on the bus; it will be fun. And then taking them to these AIG houses and then calling the press and saying, "There's protests, there's people protesting right in front of the houses." And the press comes and nobody asks, "Who rented the buses? How did you guys get here? Who are you people?" And the day before that, the day before that there were protests in front of AIG: Take these taxes back! These people are criminals!

You've got -- while congress is saying these people should commit Harry Carey, nobody in the media decided to ask, who are these people in front of AIG. Do you know who they were? They were organized by the Service Workers' Union. Wait a minute, the service workers, the service workers, the service workers, why do I know that union? Why does that sound -- oh, I remember. ACORN is in bed with Barack Obama. ACORN helped get out the vote. ACORN is now getting billions of dollars. ACORN and these community groups getting all kinds of money. While you can't donate any more if you're in a certain tax bracket and actually, you know, write it off, you don't need to do that because the government will take care of the community needs through organizations like ACORN. While they're in bed, who's doing the bidding in front of the AIG houses and stirring up the hate? ACORN. Who's in front of AIG? The Service Workers' Union. How are they connected? Let's go back to Nevada, shall we? Let's go back to that crucial race in Nevada. Do you remember? Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, everyone was saying, "Well, Barack Obama, he's going to be the winner. Hillary Clinton should just get out. No, no, no, Nevada, she's popular, it could work there." All of a sudden there's this big scandal about, you can't ask people to leave work, we need to be able to put these voting stations in the casinos so our people can vote.

When did anyone ever say that they were going to put a voting booth in your cubicle? When did they ever come to your office: "You have to leave work." But the unions arranged it so they could put voting booths in casinos. Which union was it? Oh, my goodness, it was the Service Workers' Union. Oh, that's weird that they're now -- why is the Service Workers' Union, why would they be organizing that in front of AIG? It's an insurance company. What is the service workers? You mean the people who work in hotels, that union? Why are they involved in front of AIG?

America, there is a show going on. This is incredible to me, and it's incredible to me that no one in the press is doing their job and asking the damn questions! Who really was responsible for the CEOs at AIG? Where did they disappear to? Where are there bigger bonuses going to Fannie and Freddie, two government institutions run by... oh, my goodness, wait a minute. Run by Barney Frank and Christopher Dodd. Hey, by the way, didn't we just find out that Christopher Dodd's wife worked for AIG in Bermuda? Why did AIG have a business in Bermuda? That's not a place to have a business. Oh, unless it's a tax dodge. Oh. So she was working -- he lives in Washington, or in Connecticut. She does, too, but she works in Bermuda for AIG. I wonder if there's any connection there. Oh, my gosh, by the way, did you hear about that bank that Barney Frank helped out? It was funny. Barney Frank was sitting there and a local bank from his district walked in. It was a minority bank. And they walked in into a meeting with the treasury and Barney Frank and Maxine Waters, they are all sitting there and they say, hey, guys, we need some money, we need a bailout right now. And the treasury starts to say, no, no, wait, guys, this is not what this is for, we just want to find out -- they went right to Barney Frank and Maxine Waters and talked to them and said, we need this money, we need it right now or we're going to fold. They got the money. Treasury says they were surprised that all of a sudden how that one happened, how this bank just turned the tables on everything and they got their money right away. You know what's weird? This is so incredibly weird. Do you know who's on the board of directors of this bank? Oh, my gosh, I didn't know. Maxine Waters' husband. Maxine Waters' husband. Isn't that weird. My gosh, I'm glad we're not paying attention to that story. I'm glad we're just nailing the people who are working for a dollar a year, I'm just glad that we're nailing their ass to the wall. You know, the ones who had nothing to do with it.

ACORN Whistleblowers & Obama Eligibility Report link

My time for blogging is limited this morning, but I wanted to make people aware of one segment of Glenn Beck's T.V. show yesterday. I want to find the video clip of his interview with a woman who found out that ACORN financed the bus used for going to AIG homes and protesting in front of their residences.

Read how the whistleblowers (former ACORN workers) are being harrassed at Maggie's Notebook. She has part of the scoop on what was discussed on Glenn's show yesterday: ACORN Whistleblowers - ACORN Pays Poor People to Protest and Worse

One of the whistleblowers refused to go public (or appearing on Beck's show) because she fears for her 2 year old's life!! Just goes to show how far ACORN bullies would go - threatening a former worker who is the mother of a two-year-old child because she spoke the truth about that awful organization and their terrorizing methods???

Readers, please share any additional information and/or links you have found on websites or blogs.

The Soft Tyranny of the NOBama Regime

There are so many great blog posts out there today that it is hard for me to choose a headliner. However, the irony of seeing the blog Stop The ACLU cover a topic that claims "Even the ACLU is opposing this Gestapo-like effort" show how utterly over the top the stupid totalitarian Obama Regime has become!

I first heard about the "The Modern Militia Movement" questionnaire on Glen Beck's radio show.

Stop the ACLU blog goes into much more detail, sharing the fact that a Secret document leaked: The Obama administration is branding libertarians and abortion opponents as hidden terrorists.


“Militia members most commonly associate with 3rd party political groups,” the report reads. “It is not uncommon for militia members to display Constitutional Party, Campaign for Liberty or Libertarian material.” Other potential signals of militia involvement, according to the report, are possession of the Gagsden “Don’t Tread on Me” flag or the widely available anti-income tax film “America: Freedom to Fascism.”

I wonder whether or not they will eventually include Mark Levin's new book, Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto on their list?

Isn't it awful to see this terribly inept Resident in the White House and his neo-Marxist buddies continue to destroy not only the financial sector of our nation; but in addition to that, the liberty, freedoms, and pursuit of happiness that is guaranteed in our Constitution and other Charters of Freedom?

Excerpt from American Thinker article:

The overall plan of the book is simple and logical. Chapter One, "On Liberty and Tyranny," lays out the basic conceptual scheme. Levin contrasts two opposing political philosophies currently in contention: The Conservative versus the Statist. He grounds the Conservative in the values and insights on human nature of the American Founders, and does so economically and convincingly. For the other side of the debate, he quite correctly rejects the label "liberal", because in current usage the term has become entirely divorced from its literal meaning. He writes:

The Modern Liberal believes in the supremacy of the state.... For the Modern Liberal, the individual's imperfection and personal pursuits impede the objectives of a utopian state. In this, Modern Liberalism promotes what French Historian Alexis de Tocqueville called soft tyranny, which becomes increasingly more oppressive, partially leading to hard tyranny.... As the word "liberal" is, in its classical meaning, the opposite of authoritarian, it is more accurate, therefore, to characterize the Modern Liberal as a Statist. (p.4)

The following nine chapters, plus an epilogue containing Levin's own manifesto -- the political changes he posits as desirable (and with which I agree) -- are organized thematically, with titles such as On Prudence and Progress, On Faith and the Founding, On the Welfare State, and On Self Preservation (i.e., national security), wherein he encapsulates nearly all the major political issues of our day, providing essential up-to-date information, while also weaving in the wisdom a timeless thinkers ranging from Alexander Hamilton to St Augustine. As the book progresses, the chapters become more and more focused on current political disputes. But the beauty of the structure is that the principles discussed in the earlier chapters are brought to bear on the subsequent topics.

[Update: Nice Deb reports that the book has been out for one day and is already #1 at Amazon! More links to article about the book there, too.]

I wanted to see what Mr. Levin meant by "statist."

I think that the following definition fits.

stat·ism (stā'tĭz'əm) Pronunciation Key
n. The practice or doctrine of giving a centralized government control over economic planning and policy.
stat'ist adj. & n.

We can already see the development of "soft tyranny" in the NOBama administration. Mark hits it exactly right when he writes, "which becomes increasingly more oppressive, partially leading to hard tyranny."

That is what all of the TEA parties going on across America are all protesting about! And, what is interesting is the fact that it is not only conservatives who are concerned about our current "soft tyrannical government," there are independents, libertarians, and even some liberals who are concerned about the neo-Marxist hard turn to the left that NOBama is taking this nation.

We are certainly


here in America. Leading us towards trillion dollar deficits is NOT THE ANSWER!

During the 60 Minutes interview, Mr. Kroft reveals that in a typical survey, only 18% of people agree with NOBama's economic policies! That means that a whopping 72% of the public THINKS NOBAMA'S ECONOMIC PLANS STINK AND WE ARE HEADING IN A DREADFULLY WRONG DIRECTION!

What is it going to take to reach this man? He's not a king. He's not a dictator (at least he's NOT SUPPOSED TO BE!).


If only common sense ruled the day Washington D.C. I guess that is too much to ask with the many morons occupying seats in the Senate and the House.

Thankfully, there are still some SANE PEOPLE in Congress. Rep. Gohmert had a great idea that, unfortunately, never saw the light of day. Why? Because PeLIARsi and ReiDUNCE dismissed all of the Republicans (and their ideas) and were shut out of the financial problem debates.

If I recall correctly, Rep. Gohmert proposed a "tax holiday" for all Americans for only three months. If such a tax holiday was given for up to six months, it STILL would have cost 1/2 (estimate) less than the Stimulus bill!!! It would have IMMEDIATELY placed more money into the pockets of EVERY WORKING TAXPAYER and BUSINESS OWNER. In turn, the business owners would have been able to hire more people. Each taxpayer would have more money to spend and that spending would have most likely helped every industry (including the failing car sales giants) in dire straits right now, by having more of OUR OWN MONEY (after all, it is EACH AND EVERY WORKER'S MONEY - NOT THE GOVERNMENT'S IN THE FIRST PLACE!!!) to spend and get the economy going again. This idea would have had IMMEDIATE RESULTS!

Economically speaking, nothing happens until someone sells something. In turn, that means that someone else is buying. IMO, government SHOULD NOT BE IN THE BUSINESS OF SELLING!!! Especially when they are using OPM - Other People's Money in the most wasteful ways imaginable! The Democratic majority's mindset is "tax and spend." They know NOTHING about the correct way to run a business!!!

But don't take my word for it. After all, I'm just a dumb blogger. I'm not an economist. However, I listen to those economists who have shared their views that NOBama's economic policies are quite the disaster.

Even other countries are worried about this new NOBama administration making disastrous economic moves.

China Calls For New World Currency to Replace Dollar

I suggest you read the entire blog post and subsequent links, but here is a brief excerpt:

In February communist China warned Democrats not to discard the stable state of bilateral relations by following a "whatever-not-Bush" economic policy. Russia's Putin warned Democrats about socialism.

But, Democrats went ahead with their historic spending bills anyway.
These moves by democrats now have China concerned that skyrocketing inflation is on the way.

In response, China called for a new reserve currency to replace the dollar.

The Financial Times reported:

[A]nalysts said the proposal was an indication of Beijing’s fears that actions being taken to save the domestic US economy would have a negative impact on China.

“This is a clear sign that China, as the largest holder of US dollar financial assets, is concerned about the potential inflationary risk of the US Federal Reserve printing money,” said Qu Hongbin, chief China economist for HSBC.

The Democrats are so dishonest.

First, they can't ever admit that the Bush tax cuts helped boost our economy for 7 of the 8 years he was in office.

Second, many bloggers have caught on to their schemes. The economic disaster was a manufactured crisis (count how many Dems caused it!!!) to get their "boy" into office. Recall how they blamed it on Bush? Perhaps they didn't think it through all the way and being the "economic geniuses" they are (NOT!!) are now stunned to see how hard it is to stop this out of control train wreck going down the track of disaster.

Back to Levin's book.

I plan to get a copy today. Can't wait to read it!

We can see - just by the piled on economic turmoil that the NOBama admin. is creating (on top of the manufactured crisis in the first place!) is an example of "statist" mentality. It is a kind of "soft tyranny" that Mr. Levin mentions in his book - which will one day lead to hard tyranny - neo-Marxist Obama's plan in the first place. That is probably why he can get stoned and appear on 60 Minutes - laughing his way through the interview while Mr. Kroft sits there in unbelief asking him, "are you punch-drunk?"

Yep...drunk with his own Kool-Aid mixture and ObamaBorg mind - trying to ruin our economy and nation even before the close of the Lamestream media's stupid "100 days" landmark. It's becoming more and more obvious to millions of people - especially those who regret voting for the phony - his inexperience, haplessness, and clueless mindset on good economic policy will make the legacy of his first days more like, "How to ruin a nation in 100 days."

American Thinker: Is Obama Creating a BC Bubble?


Nowadays, the success of our Treasury bond sales depends on the good will of China's Gao Xiqing, who controls over $700,000,000,000 of outstanding US treasury notes and who reportedly is a hard core Chinese Communist who regards America as China's enemy.

Why, then, is Obama pursuing this risky maneuver? We can imagine at least four possibilities, in order of increasing infamy:

* He is too naïve or ignorant to understand what he is risking.
* He knows but doesn't care, being interested only in what looks good for the moment.
* He wants to cause inflation, because inflation favors debtors and the biggest debtor in the United States is the United States. Moreover, inflation leads to devaluation of the dollar, which, as James Lewis recently pointed out, is one of the key objectives of puppet master George Soros.
* He wants to provoke a crisis of capitalism, as James Simpson has already suggested.

Whatever the reason, the effects could be devastating.

Obama's Abysmal Lack of Discernment [Video Added]

Over at Gateway Pundit, I just read about Obama laughing during his 60 minutes interview. He laughs while our nation is in dire straits economically?? Even the interviewer couldn't believe it! He asked Obama, "are you punch-drunk?"

NOBama acts like a freakin' baby! He has a spiritual shallowness that shows his abysmal lack of discernment. We are seeing this phony deteriorate right before our very eyes.

Why does he keep appearing on news and talk shows? He is self-seeking for his own feelings and experiences. A narcissist at the core!

Think about it people. An infant is completely self-centered. The characteristic that is most descriptive of an infant is selfishness. They scream if they don't get what they want when they want it (forcing Congress to pass his stupid StimuWASTE and OmniBUST bills) - without even reading them??

All that ObamaFRAUD is aware of is his own needs and desires. Who in their right mind would say "gallows humor" when a reporter confronts him about laughing while our economy is in crisis? It is unconscionable to me that we haven't thrown his a** out of office already!

Just like an infant, Obama can't help others. He never says thanks for anything and can't give what is needed to fix this economy. So what does he do? He stays in "campaign mode" and tries to keep his "celebrity idol" image intact. I'm telling you people, his development is so lagging that I don't think we will ever see him get past the stage of helpless selfishness.

What a tragedy for our nation!!

Even leaders in other countries are snickering and laughing at him for his ineptitude!

ObamaUSURPER is totally preoccupied with self. That is why he can laugh during a 60 minutes interview. The guy has no conscience! He appears to have a dark soul - too. His comment gaffe about Special Olympics athletes shows how little he really cares about others. The same can be said about his tragically abnormal psyche and worldview regarding killing infants through abortion - even if they are born alive after a botched abortion.

ObamaCREEP has such a severe lack of discernment that it reveals a spiritual apathy that is deadly evil.

Guess I just needed to vent. I am finding it very difficult to hold back my anger at Obama for the many ways that he is utilizing to try and destroy our great country!

Please God - have mercy on us and save us from this disastrous man and give our nation a REAL, GENUINE LEADER FOR PRESIDENT!!

Even Though Lamestream Media Won't Cover Them

There are a LOT of Tea Party protests going on across our nation! The biggest one will be held in Washington D.C. and in states, counties and towns across the U.S. on April 15th.

Michele Malkin: Liveblogging the Lexington KY Tea Party; Ridgefield CT Tea Party protesters say “DUMP DODD;” 3k in Orlando; Raleigh NC represents


Scroll for updates…3,000 in Orlando…no national wire coverage of these thousands of protesters across the country, but AP covers measly anti-war protest turnout in Washington…

There are between 300-500 peaceful, grass-roots activists protesting out-of-control government spending in Lexington KY. *Update: Organizer Leland Conway e-mails that final tally on attendance at Lexington is 1,200-1500.*
This comment at Malkin's blog is quite sobering:

My dear friends, I think you are in big trouble. Whether you believe it or not, YOU ARE AT WAR. And you may lose this war very soon, together with all your affluence and freedoms, unless you start defending yourselves. I hope you have noticed on your color televisions that there is in fact war going on right now all over this planet. This war has many faces, but it’s all the same– it’s war. Some call it “national liberation,” some title it “class struggle” or “political terrorism.” Others call it “anticolonialism” or “struggle for majority rule.” Some even come up with such fancy names as “war of patriotic forces” or “peace movement.”

I call it World Communist Aggression.

I know what I am talking about, because I was on the side of the aggressor before I decided to take YOUR side. I do not believe– I KNOW that in this war no one is being “liberated, decolonised or made equal,” as Soviet doctrine proclaims. You may notice, if you give yourselves the trouble to observe, that the only “equality” and “liberation” this war produces is the equality of death and the “liberation” from freedom.…You have too many concrete examples of what Communist “liberation” has done for other countries to believe that I am wrong when I warn you that we are on the brink of disaster. From one that has lived, worked and seen first-hand the realities of day to day life in a communist/ socialist state– you must wake up now and start defending the rights and freedoms you now have. No matter how many problems you think the U.S. may have, believe me when I say that they are nothing in comparison to the troubles you will experience if the U.S. continues to agree and sympathize with communist/ socialist doctrines.

Thank God people are waking up.I will be at my local Tea Party on April 15th.

And yes, CT, dumping Dodd is much better than simply dumping tea.

We all need to dump the Democratic Socialist Communists and their RINO filibuster-buster counterparts.

Update on Obama Citizenship being questioned:

Read this article: Taitz to FBI: Investigate 'tampering' at Supremes
'305 million Americans need to know if foreign national is usurping presidency'

Listen to the video tapes of an interview with Orly Taitz at Citizen Wells blog

Then, see the video clip of Orly confronting Chief Justice John Roberts during a lecture at a university in Idaho.

Orly had previously given the documents to Justice Scalia during a book signing.

Therefore, TWO JUSTICES are now FULLY AWARE of all of the information (provided that they read them!!) in Orly's arguments for her case (that is now suspected of being sidestepped through the alleged illegal tampering of a clerk at the Supreme Court!). If nothing is done from here, then we know that the Supreme Court must have been bought, threatened, silenced, or all three.

If it is found to be true that the SCOTUS clerk DID TAMPER with Orly's case, and something is done about it in the near future, then perhaps we have a chance of ousting Resident Obama.

More and more people are finding out about all of the Obama citizenship cases and the questions surrounding his refusal to release documents about his past.

It has been suggested on other blogs to bring copies of website links (Orly's blog, Citizen Wells, etc.) with you when you attend a Tea Party protest and give out the fliers to those who may not already know the details about Obama's citizenship issues.

More Disturbing Each Day

“Liberty may be endangered by the abuse of liberty, but also by the abuse of power.”
- James Madison
Read more from the Founding Fathers here.

I don't know about you, readers, but I find what is happening in the present administration and Congress more and more disturbing each and every day. In addition to everything that I have already written about Obama and Clueless Congress, now I am wondering when we can actually call what they are doing a form of treason against our country? More importantly, am I even correct that such acts could possibly be considered as treasonous acts?

People...I am confused about this. I admit it. I am not an economics authority. I am not a political authority. I am not one who can easily identify when a crime is actually being commited by Congress and/or our treasury department. But the bailouts and stimulus bills and pork-barrel spending that are happening now does not appear to be aimed in the right direction to help fix this economy. Period. I can only conclude that there is something very sinister going on.

Portions of the following commentary may just amount to opinion and conjecture, on my part. But I am wondering how many other people might possibly be thinking some of the same things?

I have already discussed the fact that this economic crisis was brought about deliberately - in order to get Obama elected. Could it be that those who started this train have now discovered that they cannot stop it? What usually happens to a runaway train with no brakes? Doesn't it crash and burn?

Yesterday, on the Glenn Beck program, the fact that one trillion dollars had been printed and pumped into our economy was discussed. Read Glenn Beck: Last Line of Defense You can also watch the video clip there.

Copy of article:

I've been telling you for weeks to not be distracted by the "big news of the day" because it's usually just a smokescreen. But on Wednesday, I fell for it myself. While everyone — including me — was taking sides on the AIG bonuses, something much more important was happening: The Fed announced it will pump a $1 trillion into the system by buying debt from our treasury.

Since they've lowered interest rates as far as they can, this is really a last ditch effort; it's like they put our entire economy up on the roulette table and the wheel is spinning.

To put this in perspective, think of America like a sick patient with a nasty staph infection. The doctors first try Penicillin to cure the patient. When that doesn't work, they try something else. And when all else fails they hook an IV to the patient.

That last line of defense was just hung over "patient America" yesterday, but we were all — and that includes me — too focused on AIG to notice.

Here's what this means: We're borrowing money from ourselves to pay for programs we can't pay for.

And that's why the price of gold shot up about 75 bucks in 18 hours. Investors aren't stupid. They know the risks this poses, especially to inflation and our dollar.

So let me play doctor here and give you the diagnosis without talking to you like a 4-year-old: The antibiotic we've just been given has never once worked in the history of the civilized world.

Can this time be different? Absolutely, but only if we've got the guts to make some life-changing decisions; decisions that will force us to shoulder some unthinkable pain in the short term, but decisions that may just save this patient's life. What do you think? Send your comments to: glennbeck@foxnews.com

Be sure to watch the video and see what one trillion dollars looks like.

Just two days ago, I asked a financial planner whether or not it is a good idea to invest in gold. After a brief explanation, he concluded that it's not really a "money maker," just comforting for some people to use as part of their investment portfolio. Little did he know what would happen the next day. As Glenn mentioned in his article and video, gold shot up $75 an ounce in 18 HOURS!

We have other countries "worried" about our dollar. I wonder. Are some of them secretly hoping that the dollar collapses and that America will be forced to come under the monetary system of the Euro?

I asked my husband, "Is any of this illegal?" Meaning - the printing of one trillion dollars like this? He said it isn't illegal. There is no law against it.


So, my next question is, could this be deemed as a treasonous act? Or does it just amount to sabotage?

Can we call Nancy Pelosi a traitor when she calls illegal aliens "patriotic" and the officers who have been hired to enforce the LAWS ON THE BOOKS and DEPORT THEM as "un-American"?

Do WE THE PEOPLE have any recourse against what is happening beside "voting them all out of office?" To me, that will take too long. America's financial system seems to be on life support!! Would WE THE PEOPLE be accused of sedition for protesting against what is happening?

I only caught a portion of Glenn's radio show yesterday, but he was discussing a questionnaire that asks many questions (i.e. Do you have a Ron Paul sticker on your car? or the "Don't Tread on Me" bumper sticker on your car?) which might identify you either as a suspected "militia member" or as a "domestic terrorist." No - I'm not kidding about those two questions on the list!

So, If you have a "Constitution Party" emblem on your car, you could be suspected of being a militia member?

In other words, if you don't "fall in line" and/or disagree with any part of the current administration, could YOU be labeled as a "domestic terrorist?"

Hmmm....I thought that this administration dropped the term "terrorist" for the Islamic "extremists" who want to kill Americans?

BTW, did you see that video of Obama at a town hall meeting in Orange County, CA where he described AIG as like "wearing a suicide bomber's belt while having the trigger in one hand?" (Trying to locate the video clip).

Then last night, we had the Gaffer in Chief (as my blogging friend Neil so aptly named him) insult the athletes of the Special Olympics. Go read Nice Deb's entire post. Remember the "nappy headed ho" comment from Imus? Recall what Obama said about it? It's there.

Could you imagine what would have happened in the media if President Bush ever said such a thing? Of course, Bush would NEVER even THINK such a thing about the Special Olympics participants. Just goes to show what kind of man Obama really is. Ugh!

Speaking of "the kind of man Obama really is," here is a very chilling report from Investigating Obama: Is This Our "Generated Crisis" by the Soros/Obama/Pelosi Insurrection?

We have already seen the horrible and incredible damage Obama has done in less than 100 days in office. Can you imagine what will happen over the course of four years?

Can something be done?

Hopefully, Natural Born Citizen has shared a way out.

I can certainly understand his concluding points:

...as a Christian, I’m somewhat convinced this nation has been judged by the Almighty and his fury may be descending as we speak. Such fury appears to be in the form of Constitutional cancer. I have prayed over my continuing role in this battle and the answer to those prayers said I am done here. As a true believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, I place my faith not in any organized religion but in the words of the Lamb and the voice of God. Peace be with you.

Fighting for Certainty In an Age of Deception

This morning, I noticed that Bill Muehlenberg had a post up reviewing John MacArthur's book, "The Truth War" over at his blog Culture Watch.

My comment there (might still be in moderation):

When John MacArthur wrote this book, little did he know how important the additional words on the book cover would be:

"Fighting for certainty in an age of deception."

Deception is all around us in the terrible lies that abound in our current political atmosphere here in the United States.

I loved this book. Thanks for your excellent review. You have inspired me to read it again!


P.S. Inside the book jacket, MacArthur writes, "this book is not friendly fire." That is certainly a literary shot across the bow of the liberal, seeker-sensitive "don't talk about the need to repent" churches that keep their congregations in bondage to sin - all the while making them think they are saved.

Pro "Hate-Crimes" Legislators Playing God

Alan Keyes has a great post up with excellent points over at his blog Loyal to Liberty: Why I Hate "Hate-Crimes" Legislation.

What is truly ironic to realize about men creating "hate-crimes" legislation, is the fact that what they are actually doing is attempting to make a law in order to "play God" with people's thoughts and beliefs.

Alan reiterates this fact with his hard-hitting commentary:

Sarcasm aside, hate crimes legislation is the statutory framework for the forceful imposition of a political and social religion. The so-called liberals mean to institutionalize intolerance, even as they loudly proclaim Holy Tolerance as their all in all. Because we seek to protect a form of human life that they despise, they defame as bigots or religious fanatics people working to re-establish respect for the law against abortion. Meanwhile they move boldly to use the force of law to punish the thoughts and attitudes of any who move against the sacred untouchables of their new cult of sexual pleasure and self-indulgence. Behind their phony slogans of hope and progress comes the return of Dark Age zealotry, dressed up in the fleshy tones of New Age vanity and glamour.

I say unequivocally that I hate this camouflaged return to the dark ages. I detest the persecution of people for their beliefs, thoughts and attitudes. More than anything that has to do with the body, this effort to delve into and directly impose upon the mind rapes the deepest form of privacy and smacks of the detestable crimes that invade the truly most intimate places of human existence in order to impose the leering tastes and heartless fancies of spiritual tyrants disguised as lawmakers and judges.

In his booklet, "Ten Truths About Hate Crime Laws" author John Aman concluded:

The State's jurisdiction is over citizen's actions, not their beliefs.

At their root, hate crime laws violate the biblical model for civic government. The threat they pose to free speech, religious liberty, equal justice, and the family is a consequence of that violation.

The authors of hate crime laws claim for men a role reserved to God alone. They consign to civic rulers the right and authority to criminalize thoughts and beliefs. More preposterously, they presume that government is competent to identify the presence of prejudice and to discern whether any bias hidden inside a suspects heart could have motivated a crime.

God alone is the judge.

None of that should be the prerogative of mere mortals. Government cannot adjudicate these "misty matters." God alone is judge of the heart of man.

Jer 17:9 "The heart [is] deceitful above all [things], And desperately wicked; Who can know it?

Jer 17:10 I, the LORD, search the heart, [I] test the mind, Even to give every man according to his ways, According to the fruit of his doings.

THE Quote For Such a Time As This

Tonight, The Right Side of Life has a huge roundup of headline articles to read. But what I liked most of all is the awesome quote at the top of his post. It is THE quote for such a time as this.

"And is it not obvious that, just as it is a crime to disturb the peace when truth reigns, it is also a crime to remain at peace when the truth is being destroyed?" – Blaise Pascal

Pray to God for truth to prevail, America.

Work to bring about the truth, America.

Do what's right and good America.

Good Night,

CRINGE You Can Believe In!

On Glenn Beck's radio show this afternoon, there was a discussion about the artist who created many of the Obama posters for his political campaign. Glenn had some questions about the ones that said, "Obey" at the bottom of the poster. He has given his assistants a mission today to find out all that they can about the person who created the posters and the meaning, purpose, and pro-communist propaganda behind them.

Be sure to watch (or DVR) his T.V. show on Fox News Channel (2:00 p.m. Pacific time; 5:00 p.m. Eastern) tomorrow. He will be doing a segment on the political propaganda messages of these posters

Even though the following post was written a year ago, I found that the forum shed some light on the subject. I'm sure there is much more to know so tune in to Glenn's show tomorrow!


Article excerpt:

As you can see, Fairey's politics are, like his art, the usual foam of limp and simple-minded "America-Bad-One-Worldism" frothing atop a steaming latte of the liberal bromides of the age. In this he's just another artist self-hypnotized by a limited vision of the world. It is a vision informed only by a bottomless ignorance of history. If there were any evidence of depth to his art one might suspect it had true socialist anchors, but I suspect that Fairey has no immersion at all in that philosophy, and that the names of Proudhon, Saint-Simon, and even Debs are ciphers to him. Obama may well be all he knows. History, after all, is hard. If there's any real political pith to him it is more likely born of the MTV-Rock-the-Vote movement; an air-guitar socialism.

Art schools, like Fairey's own Rhode Island School of Design, pour out these hapless, uneducated graduates versed only in assimilationism year after year. After all, they never promised the parents of these half-talented kids a Monet, a Rubens, a Picasso... not even a Duchamp. Artists of talent and uncolonized minds such as R. Crumb do not come out of these art schools, only assimilationist parrots.

Like the other degreed drabs of his generation, Fairey is a one-trick pony. Lately, however, his trick has caused his pony to be pranced about the center ring of the Obama traveling circus and revival meeting. I've written about Fairey and his Sardonic-Socialist-Realism before in Obama: A Progressive for Progress! Now with Liberal Substance!

At the time, Fairey's folly seemed like a one shot deal. But to a generation historically ignorant of the inner meaning of Soviet Socialist Realism, Fairey's flavor of New Socialist Realism was tasty. It gave him a chip in the Obama game. And with his elevation to Chief-Propagandist-in-Waiting among the Obamaites it would seem that Fairey is on-track to bigger and better things at last.

Just as the Russian Socialist Realists had their Lenin, Stalin, and Mao, Fairey has found his own Big Brother.

Scary portion of a comment at that link:

Fairey's "Change" poster is not "derivative" of Soviet propaganda. It IS Soviet propaganda. It is not ironic. It is earnest. And it is not just for troglodytes. It is for anyone who embraces the pop aesthetic. This poster is, quite simply, self aware. It knows what Soviet propaganda was. It knows Fairey's ironic use of it in the past. It knows its purpose.

Loved this comment:

(Parenthetical entities are MINE)...

“I wanted to make an art piece (piece of what?) of Barack (Hussein) Obama because I thought an iconic portrait of him could symbolize and amplify the (un)importance of his (non)mission (as Saviour of All Mankind). I believe Obama will (mis)guide (i.e., sell out, destroy, and co-opt) this country to a future where everyone can thrive (and worship at the altar of Iranian, Saudi, and Russian tyranny, especially at the gas pump) and I should support him vigorously for the sake of my two young daughters (who will eventually "thrive" under slavery, in my world view). I have made (ersatz) art opposing the Iraq war for several years, and making art of Obama, who opposed the war from the start (perhaps due to the fact that he was NOT a U.S. Senator when the U.S. Congress voted on the Iraq war, and could NOT have voted for, OR, against it (as a U.S Senator; yes, look it up, you mindless, moronic, Obama myrmidons), is like making art for peace (AT ANY PRICE). I know I have an audience of young (albeit, "dumbed-down" zombies, thanks to the American educational system) art fans and I’m delighted (i.e., all the way to the bank) if I can encourage them to see the (so-called?) merits (just check his Senate voting record) of Barack (Hussein) Obama.”

Faultline USA has a review of the documentary "The Obama Deception" and has entitled the post:

Is Obama the Anglo-Elite’s Puppet of Choice?


Here are some questions the video attempts to answer:

Are we in a final phase of a global takeover? - An artificially engineered global bankruptcy? And could it be true?

Was JFK the last real president of the USA? Have all subsequent presidents been mere puppets of international globalist bankers?

Sure seems like it....doesn't it?

Recall my post about Bilderbergers - Devious Corporate Globalist Scheme?
