America Held Hostage- the Obama Files...

America Held Hostage- the Obama Files...

With a hattip to Rush ( His idea during the Clinton plague upon America ) I am starting a file on “The One,” mostly starting from the election date.

Older stuff- links, quotes, quips, and sometimes pointed graphics can be found by scrolling back from these two posts:

-Hillary Clinton- archives, comments, and opposition research--

-Sarah Palin- links, from the beginning--

There is some good material in those posts that raises a lot of uncomfortable questions that everyone ought to be asking, and probably will once the “new” wears off, and we are stuck with four ( more likely eight, since 95% of the news & entertainment media are in his pocket ) years of a typical corrupt Chicago Political Machine Politician trying to jerk the whole country in one direction and then the next.

You've all heard the saying,

”People get the kind of government they want...
...and deserve?”

Well, America, you are about to “get it, good & hard...”

Don't say you weren't warned- we tried to tell you...

We did everything we could, and our state went for the Old Guy & the Naughty Librarian, but too many other voters were made stupid by the TV and public schools for it to matter.

We're in a Hell of a mess, and the worst thing is, "we"- the collective we, not you & I-- got us here.

Is Obama really the Abyss...

staring back at us?

I like to make points with humorous graphics- this one sums it up as well as any:


Then, in a nutshell, "everything I see going bad with all this hopi- changi- stuff The One is peddling-- forced labor, censorship, spin, and pure mean-spirited rudness:

Email of the day

Atlas readers rock! I am blown away by the overwhelming response to this post  (and this one) to get involved to take back our country from the Soros, socialists, and the self proclaimed messiah - oy. More than one email brought a tear to my eye but I wanted to share this one with you.

If this best represents who we are, what we want and where we are going, there is no way we can lose. Greatness is in the house. I am proud to count you as my friends. Prouder still to stand with you and fight this great fight.

I want to lead a county.

I was born in Cuba, and know the language of Communism, Obama speaks it well.  My grandfather's family had to flee Lebanon because of the Muslims to Cuba. We fled Cuba because of Castro.

This is the best country in the whole wide world.  I was a child when I left Cuba with the clothe on my back, we left my parent's sister and I, left behind everything. 

America is Worth fighting for and Freedom is worth defending.  I do not want my children to grow up in oppression, nor do I wish exile upon them.

Please allow me to help, again, Id like to lead a county.

My name is Ingrid and Im in Miami, in Miami Dade County

May the Light always shine upon America,


UPDATE: In case there was any doubt as to what the victorious zombies have in mind. Check out this comment (left in the comment section) . Can you say rude awakening?

You people are pathetic!

Your racist fear mongering will not go unchallenged!  Soon we will shut down your hate spewing web sites.  We will confiscate your firearms.  In prison, you will get an education on the error of your ways.  We will take your children and raise them as our own and instill in them the values of social justice.  We will have a new American Republic of justice and order for all!

You time is almost up!  Prepare for the dung heap of history!

It sounds insane (which it is) but I believe the writer is quite serious.

"We will confiscate your firearms. In prison, you will get an education on the error of your ways. We will take your children and raise them as our own and instill in them the values of social justice".....

Heh heh heh....I am sure you are serious, but that is funny!

Values of social Mao? Stalin? Lenin? Ho-chi Min? Pol Pot? Which of these butchers of social justice did you have in mind?"

That's the number of civilians that have been murdered by their own governments in the 20th century alone.

Innocents Betrayed is a must see video produced by Jews for the Preservation of Firearms (scroll down to see links to view the Introduction to Innocents Betrayed)

Now consider Obama's 'civilian defense force' which he intends to fund and equip as well as our standing military coupled with his promise to revisit the second amendment (repeal concealed carry privilege) and then compound this injury with Ayers' inspired youth corps.

Learn from the Slicksters


Obamessiah has a new site up as President-elect soliciting ideas form the proletariat.
Let's hope it doesn't become the hub for the hate whitey and Jew boy Obamavomit that his last site was.

Surf the site. Take note. Keep your eye on the The Obama National Service Plan- the page is empty (how apropos) but that piques my interest.

President Obama To Bring Back Slavery

Just in case anyone think Mr. Obama is not serious about this, bear in mind that his new Chief of Staff wrote a book demanding this very thing: The Plan: Big Ideas for America: Rahm Emanuel, Bruce Reed: Books;sr=1-1

Don’t forget they want a Gestapo/KKK civilian force the size of the pentagon to keep everybody inline and things running smoothly.

“Suddenly, all mention of “required” has been disappeared. ”

SOME THOUGHTS ON OBAMA'S mandatory volunteerism plan. Plus, reader Nancy Anne Potts writes:

Looks like the site is true to it's title - it changes!

During the time when I was looking at the blog you linked to concerned mandatory community service the page saying "require community service" changed to goal for community service. The new wording is:

"..... Obama will call on citizens of all ages to serve America, by setting a goal that all middle school and high school students do 50 hours of community service a year and by developing a plan so that all college students who conduct 100 hours of community service receive a universal and fully refundable tax credit ensuring that the first $4,000 of their college education is completely free."

I found the the cached page on Google it has the original "required" wording.

Looks like they caught their "mistake". Now will the real plan please step forward -- goal or required. (Although the way government sets goals, they often wind up looking like requirements so maybe the two aren't all that different.)

Ugh! I see card check made the economy page too. He may be the president elect but I don't have to like his plans!

Not until the second term. Then that will be made mandatory, too . . . .

Meanwhile, Robert Bidinotto comments: "Anyone recall what the Soviets used to do to history books?" The Obama folks have a history of airbrushing.

IF YOU VOTED FOR MCCAIN, you're a racist. Just in case nobody had bothered to tell you.

Obama Mocks Nancy Reagan in 1st Press Conference

It's  classless to mock a frail, elderly woman. (Note he was not kind in his revelation about his own "typical white person" grandmother, either.)

It's even worse to mock the widow of a great former president. Whatever you think of her, she deserves respect.

Especially classless was mocking Nancy Reagan on stage, before hundreds of reporters and television cameras, knowing the "joke" would be heard by millions. This wasn't some private remark that got picked up by a live mike.

H.R. 1022: Assault Weapons Ban and Law Enforcement Protection Act of 2007

On Concerns Over Gun Control, Gun Sales Are Up

From "", the official transition website. Agenda tab and then select "urban policy" and go down to "Crime Control".

Address Gun Violence in Cities:
As president, Barack Obama would repeal the Tiahrt Amendment, which restricts the ability of local law enforcement to access important gun trace information, and give police officers across the nation the tools they need to solve gun crimes and fight the illegal arms trade. Obama and Biden also favor commonsense measures that respect the Second Amendment rights of gun owners, while keeping guns away from children and from criminals who shouldn't have them. They support closing the gun show loophole and making guns in this country childproof. They also support making the expired federal Assault Weapons Ban permanent, as such weapons belong on foreign battlefields and not on our streets.

There will be no one left to protect you
Barack Obama wants to institute a Civilian National Security Force, a vast militia not unlike Iran’s Revolutionary Guard, a personal army. He knows he would need such a force to protect him and to enforce his will on Americans. Americans will have not seen such arbitrary power used against them since the days of the Civil War when Lincoln put the Constitution in the bottom drawer of his desk and set about arresting anyone who opposed his policies...

VIDEO of Obama calling for a Secret Police Force: CIVILIAN NATIONAL SECURITY FORCE??

QUESTIONS ABOUT THAT civilian national security force.

“Just as powerful, just as strong, and just as well funded.” So the astute observer and deep thinker might reflect for a minute and be compelled to pose several questions (although the MSM won’t)...

Hmmmm... this one is very difficult. I was in the military, and we were taught we salute the uniform, not the man. So I respect the office, not the man. However, I am adopting a wait and see. If Obama governs as if he cares about America, even if we disagree, I can accept that. If Obama governs as I expect, like a Manchurian candidate who is bent on America’s deconstruction, that is when he will disqualify himself as being my president.

Liberal activists have long legislative wish list

National Organization for Women. "Since 1994, we've been losing over and over on legislation related to equality and fair treatment for women."
The gay-rights movement also campaigned vigorously for Obama.
NARAL Pro-Choice America and the Planned Parenthood Federation of America want Obama and Congress to move aggressively...
An array of other advocacy groups are stepping forward with their priorities for the new Congress.

Barack Obama: The Kingfish Reborn

Do Unto Obama As Liberals Did Unto Bush

Coal stocks plummet. Average 15%, many over 30% since Tuesday Gee, wonder why?

Kate, this is important and you should listen to it. It's about Obama's cult of personality and it is short.

From the blogs- and, always, read the Anchoress:

Bush, Obama, & Ghosts of Hate - UPDATED

“The dogmas of the quiet past are inadequate to the stormy present. The occasion is piled high with difficulty, and we must rise with the occasion. As our case is new, so we must think anew, and act anew. We must disenthrall ourselves, and then we shall save our country.” Lincoln’s Second Annual Message to Congress, December 1, 1862.

I would love nothing better than to be able to stop writing about “left” and “right.” I wish we had a better vocabulary to describe our distinctions, because these words are limiting and off-putting. I am determined, with the merciful conclusion of this abusively long election season, to work diligently at spending less time entertaining these distinctions. But for today, I think it is only fair to note a very important and glaring difference between “left and right” - and in so doing - consider how we may, finally, stop needing to indulge in what is tedious.

Victor Davis Hanson
says Let’s not imitate the left in our opposition. I agree.

It has been wonderful - really beyond wonderful - to consider how differently most of the right has reacted to their defeat than the left did in 2000 and 2004. In the two previous elections, the left responded by calling the other half of the country “stupid,” “morons,” and “Nazis” - Jane Smiley called them “unteachably ignorant” - they indulged in high drama, sniffling “apologies” to the globe, and denunciations of their fellow countrymen as “lying between repugnant and reptile in the dictionary.”

And oh, yeah (eyeroll) George W. Bush was not “their” president.

While you’ll see a few disgruntled extremists on the right say foolish, even ignorant things - and many throwing daggers at the sickening double-standards of the press - they’re not indulging in that sort of dehumanizing (and very adolescent) hate of their fellow countrymen or the president-elect. The reports they’re filing read very differently than those following the Bush wins. They read as grown-up, tolerant, open-minded discourses, not tantrums. There is a willingness to be hopeful, even in defeat.

And there is a determined respectfulness being offered to the winners - people who could not manage maturity and respectfulness in their defeat and who, sadly, are not always managing it in their victory, either.

I’m hopeful that the left - if it takes the time to actually condescend to notice how well it is being treated by the vanquished - might consider that self-indulgent defamation is the lesser way; that such a consideration may inspire introspection, and perhaps the smallest bit of regret for some of their appalling excesses toward the right and toward the American President who did not return hate in-kind.

I’m hopeful. I’m an optimist. I KNOW that the folks on the right - for all of their faults, and both sides certainly have faults - want America to be successful and strong and exceptional and free. I’m hopeful that hugely empowered left will discover that - beyond the feel-goodism of “free social programs” which are never free -they actually, really do want all of those things, too. That they’ll look back on the last 8 years and realize, finally, that their enemy was never George W. Bush. Bush, the guy who never dehumanized them, was only trying serve those corny ideals.

And then, miraculously, we may actually have unity.

Some similar thinking from my girl crush, Donna Brazile:

“The one mistake that we continue to make is that we label people. We say you’re conservatives, liberal, progressive, right wing, left wing. I think people just want to spend one day being Americans. They want to come together around a common purpose, common values.”

I wondered the other day if the catharsis of this election might open up “a vein of generosity” (or at least decency) from the left as concerns President Bush. I have not seen it yet, but I’m going to be optimistic and keep looking.

But maybe it’s enough just to see a little appreciation from the right, to start. Like this, for instance:

I link, therefore, I Err has a little mini-round-up of appreciation for George W. Bush. You’ll want to read it all.

From Alppuccino at Protein Wisdom:

At 10:40, President Bush will keep his streak alive by telling everyone how much he loves America. Just as he always has. And he’ll show everyone how much he loves America by preparing Obama as best he can for the next 4 years.

Read it all; it’s doubtful that Obama’s team will come into the White House finding O’s missing from their keyboards, any rude messages greeting them. And that is how it should be in America, a respectful transition.

Michael Gerson:

Many liberals refuse to concede Bush’s humanity, much less his achievements.

But that humanity is precisely what I will remember. I have seen President Bush show more loyalty than he has been given, more generosity than he has received. I have seen his buoyancy under the weight of malice and his forgiveness of faithless friends. Again and again, I have seen the natural tug of his pride swiftly overcome by a deeper decency — a decency that is privately engaging and publicly consequential.

[In 2005]…the White House senior staff overwhelmingly opposed a new initiative to fight malaria in Africa for reasons of cost and ideology…In the crucial policy meeting, one person supported it: the president of the United States, shutting off debate with a moral certitude that others have criticized. I saw how this moral framework led him to an immediate identification with the dying African child, the Chinese dissident, the Sudanese former slave, the Burmese women’s advocate. It is one reason I will never be cynical about government — or about President Bush.

Jeffery Scott Shapiro:

[The treatment of President Bush] from this country is nothing less than a disgrace. The attacks launched against him have been cruel and slanderous, proving to the world what little character and resolve we have…Our failure to stand by the one person who continued to stand by us has not gone unnoticed by our enemies. It has shown to the world how disloyal we can be when our president needed loyalty — a shameful display of arrogance and weakness that will haunt this nation long after Mr. Bush has left the White House.

Until we fix, within ourselves, our enthrallment with hate for others, simply because they hold differing views, we’ll never pull it together. In 2006 we watched a right-wing blogger be called less than human by a left-wing reader. We’ve seen President Bush being referred to as “the chimp” and “the monkey” by the wits who insisted that ideology trumped having a decent respect for another’s humanity. I wrote about that a little here:

Thus, George W. Bush is “Chimpy McHitler.” Hillary Clinton is “a pig in a pantsuit.” Barack Obama is “O-Bambi.” Cindy McCain, who has exhibited some courage and laudable compassion in her life, is reduced to a “pill-popping beer-frau,” and so forth. From there it is smooth sailing down an ever-descending river of hatred, until we are incapable of seeing anything good in the “other,” both because we have willfully hardened our hearts, and because our hate — especially when it is supported by a group of like minds — feels safe and inviolable.

With that in mind, you’ll want to read this excellent piece over at Conversion Diary, wherein Jenifer ponders pictures from a Nazi-era photo album and wonders, how such common-variety people managed to support and enable such profound evil.

One thing that stands out in all these examples is that the victims of the widespread evil were categorized as something less than human…not only that innocent people were killed or enslaved, but that their humanity was taken away by the societies around them…So here is the advice I would offer to my children, and to my children’s children:

Every decade or so, take a look around the society in which you live, and ask yourself if there is any group of human beings who are seen as something less than human. A big tipoff is if dehumanizing words — terms other than “man,” “woman,” “child,” “baby,” or “person” — are used to describe any category of people.

And if you ever see that going on, you might be in the midst of something gravely evil.

Dehumanizing people begins with baby-steps like name-calling, or the sort of intellectual dishonesty that delights in deliberately twisting the meaning of others in negative and misrepresentative ways. Those are the little gateways to the great evils that come once you’ve managed to thoroughly de-humanize others.

We’ve had 8 years - I’d say 12, really - of people demonizing and dehumanizing others, from both sides, and it is not getting us anyplace good. I believe that the response of most of the right to Obama’s victory is a step toward changing that. But the left has to do their part, too.

Pope Benedict XVI said, “those who hope live differently.” The election of Barack Obama was borne on this word, “Hope.”

If the people who voted for “hope” were sincere, then let them begin, today, to embrace it - and to live differently - without the kneejerk move to hate “the other side.” The right, responding levelly to their defeat, has offered the opening. Will the left take it?

UPDATE: Seems some will. Here is mostly accurate, and apprecited praise from a surprising quarter:

Would America have elected Barack Obama if white Americans had not gotten accustomed to seeing (in succession) two African-American Secretaries of State? I don’t think so. Before Bush, African-Americans were appointed to some good posts but not to our #1 foreign policy job. Two African Americans (one with a pretty odd first name) served as America’s face to the world. That eased Obama’s way. It is not Tiger Woods in whose footsteps Obama is walking — it’s Rice and Powell….Fact is, “W” never gave any evidence of holding racist attitudes…even just the slur the occasionally slips out of the mouth of even our most liberal leaders.

Same with Arabs and Muslims…Bush, after 9/11, never resorted to anti-Arab or Muslim stereotypes. He drew distinctions between terrorists and Arabs…Had he not done these things, Arabs and Muslims might have experienced not just hate crimes but pogroms.

Meanwhile, from Grand Rants:

Here is a man who is regularly compared to Hitler in casual conversation in Leftist circles high and low. His honor has been regularly impugned, his intelligence (or, as the press loves to put it, his “intellectual curiousity”) constantly demeaned, his verbal stumblings consistently mocked, and his accomplishments in office discounted or ignored. He is a man who kept his head down and did his job, despite the slings and arrows hurled at him by fortune made all the more outrageous by nearly the entire Democratic party.

I for one, would like to say thank you to Pres. Bush. For keeping us safe. For watching out for us. For persevering in spite of all the spite. I believe history will ultimately judge you as one of America’s best presidents, and I believe you deserve that judgement.

H/T to Opinionated Catholic, who writes:

The throwing under the bus of the President by even his friends and indeed the base has been shocking to me. Many groups will find out soon enough how they took Bush’s support and advocacy for them for granted, Catholics, especially.

Meanwhile, Jules Crittenden is beginning to enjoy Omerica, Quin Hillyer is saying America is over, kaput, finished, Evan Thomas suddenly finds Obama “slightly creepy” and when you refuse to release medical records, and the press doesn’t care…conjecture begins about your mental health.

Forty-Fourth President, Twelfth Imam

by Baron Bodissey

O-Man’s Fibonacci spiral haloThe election results were long expected, but now that the day has arrived it’s quite a letdown, anyway. Reading about the joy expressed by Hamas and Syria and Italy and Indonesia… contemplating Obama’s Secretary of State, or (God help us) Defense… Thinking about the USA becoming just like Sweden, only with a real army, and aircraft carriers, and nukes… First Lady Michelle…

It’s all too depressing.

So, as is my habit in such circumstances, instead of writing a post this evening or doing something else useful, I created yet another iconic image of The One. After looking around at some of his existing halos, I decided to make one myself. A man can’t have too many halos, right?

And then I pondered the phenomenon of halos appearing behind the heads of great national leaders, men who are born into modest Muslim circumstances, but in time become presidents of large countries that have nuclear weapons. It made me think of…
- - - - - - - - -
Mad Jad’s HaloMahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Ol’ Mad Jad got his halo when he went to visit the UN a couple of years ago. It appeared behind his head while he was speaking. Not only that, his audience was held in such rapt attention by his words that they were unable to blink for thirty minutes. We know all this is true because he told us so.

I wonder how many other resemblances there are between him and Barack Hussein Obama.

Ahmadinejad sees himself as preparing the way for the Twelfth Imam, as a sort of satanic John the Baptist for the man who is prophesied to return and usher in the apocalypse preceding the establishment of the permanent reign of Islam over the entire world.

And Obama’s got a bigger halo.

Does that mean…? Nah — it couldn’t be… But still… It makes me wonder…

What if the One were also the Twelfth?

Note to the literal-minded: this post is for fun, not to be taken seriously. Given the circumstances, it’s the only fun I’m likely to have for quite a while.

Read further...

Saul Alinsky Takes the White House My wife just got an e-mail from the head of HR saying that the post-election Obama jokes have to stop, especially if there is any hint that it might be related to racism. No notice before the election. And it was OK to get anti-Bush e-mails for 8 years. Oh yeah, she works for a bank that is hoping for a piece of the bailout action...

FReepers: we need you now more than ever. Don't go!

I’m not leaving as long as the Good Lord’s willing and the Creeks don’t rise.

Have no fear- The One will halt the rising creeks, heal the planet, and make the French love us again ( Oh, gag me! )...

Well, I’m not going anywhere as long as I have a voice.

We may have to go back to Xerox machines and small presses distributing handbills, but I’ll be damned if I let my country slip in to “That Good Night” without a fight.

I’m the one who dubbed Clinton “Little Big Fraud,” so I’ll have to work on something for The One.

We may have to set up a “Free Republic in Exile” like Degaulle did when the Nazis overran France, but we’ll manage.

It does distress me that so many people were suckered by a typical Chicago Machine empty suit, but he had 95% of both the press and entertainment arms of The Media Hive trying to get him elected, and covering up for him, so it’s not surprising.

Carry on.

Some realistic things to expect early in the Obama Administration

I work in Chicago. I deal with a great many attorneys in my job, many of whom are staunch Dims and breathless Obambi supporters; some were even active in his campaign. More than one told me that at or near the top of Obambi’s agenda is a new Hate Crimes bill, with a wide expansion of what will be considered a hate crime

Didn't you notice that Obama is a conservative?  "Obama is, in his own words, something of a Rorschach test. In his latest book, The Audacity of Hope, he writes, 'I am new enough on the national political scene that I serve as a blank screen on which people of vastly different political stripes project their own views.' "

Being an American is much more than being "cool"

Obama Bought The Presidency

Another Painful Lesson For The GOP

That’s what happens when you run a true left wing liberal against a liberal lite. The real one wins.

Remember, that's my theory why we went down to defeat in 2006...

I said something along the lines of,

"I've read all the theories why we lost so badly, and I still say this: Once elected, the Republicans taxed & spent & regulated like a bunch of Democrats- no wonder the voters decided to try The Real Thing!"



Here it comes, you bitter clingers:

Is There Nothing That Obama Can't Do?

with "everything you need to be aware of."
But I'm just burned, and bummed out. The elections. The sellout of Israel. The Moonbats. The Stupid Party. The Evil Party.

Then again, after yesterday there's this:

”Zimbabwe On The Potomac...”

You know there were warning signs...

I kept telling people when Bill Clinton slithered in to office, and clung to it, despite all the scandals, and Impeachment itself-- “He's just a symptom. Like a fever is of a disease- there's something wrong with America.”

Like Popular Culture- look at the magazines-- I call it “thugs & jugs,” or “which Pop Tart is popping out whose baby this week?”

Or Katrina- ever seen so many people milling around with their hands out, when they should have been helping themselves?

We did it to ourselves, and The New, Improved Black Jesus is merely a symptom.

All civilizations have a shelf life- once enough citizens figure out that by electing the “right” representatives, they can use the power of the government to pick the pockets of others,'s all over, except for the details.

Well, we're in the “details,” now.

Meanwhile, I have to figure out what Miss Emily and I do with what's left of our lives, and bush hog her Mom's old place in the country, because City Life isn't going to be worth living from here on out.

I'll catch you all later...

Obama "Requires" Community Service then Removes his Agenda from Website After Scrutiny.

My letter to my U.S. Senators (WRITE THE ENTIRE U.S. SENATE)


Idaho U.S. Senators Mike Crapo and Senator-elect Jim Risch
November 8, 2008
CC: ALL US Senators
Washington, DC
RE: Principled Stand on the Issues of the day using the fillibuster

Dear Senators Crapo and Senator-elect Risch,

I am writing this letter to you (to be delivered by email, fax, and the regular mail), to voice my support of the foundational principles that have preserved this nation's liberty, soveriegnty, integrity, prosperity, and peace throughout its history. These principles of sanctity for life, free markets, self-sufficency, national soveriengty, self defense, individual worth and effort, and personal and societal accountability and responsibilty are bedrock principles to the well being of our Republic and society, and they are also under relentless assault from forces both external and internal to our nation.

In that regard, I am urging my own senators, and all senators...and particularly all GOP stand for these principles throughout the term of the incoming Obama administration, and particularly when coupling that administration with their DNC majorities in the house and the senate.

But particularly in the US Senate.

The democratic majority was unsuccessful in obtaining a fillibuster proof majority in the US Senate and this gives rise to a critical opportunity for the GOP to resist the sure-to-come abject efforts of the President and his majority to further undercut and weaken these critical prinicples, as they have promised to do, and that their party has been assaulting for many years under the false-flag guises of societal justice and equity through wealth redistribution, a woman's right to choose to kill her own unborn child, public safety to infringe second amendment rights, mipsplaced compassion to reward illegal aliens with citezenship, and any other number of carefully crafted marketing messages to advance their agenda in these areas.

In particular, Senators, I am urging everyone I know, realitves, neighbors, friends, and acquaintences, to write similar letters.

Stand on principle Senators...the principles enumerated above, and resist the majority in the Senate who will be seeking any number of legislative efforts to undermine these principles I have spoken of. We will gauge your performance accordingly and will either vote to keep you as stalwart defenders of our Constitutiomnal Republic and the principles upon which is has been founded, or replace you with those who will do so accordingly.

Specifcally, use the power of the fillibuster to force the majority to either set-aside, or significantly compromise on their plans for all of the following:
  1. The Freedom of Choice Act which will re-fund abortion with federal monies and remove almost all restriction to this ghastly procedure.
  2. The proposed nationalization of 401K plans, illiminating them in favor of a federal program tied to the Social Security fund.
  3. Any Comprehensive Immigration legislation providing a path to citezenship for illegals already in this counrty.
  4. The Obama administration's plans for raising taxes, using the fillibuster to get them to make permanent the Bush tax cuts instead.
  5. Any Obama plans to draw down our forces in Iraq or Afghanistan prematurely before our current military leaders feel it would be prudent to do so.
  6. Any effort to further erode or curtail individual rights to firearms, including any effort to reinstate the so-called Assault Weapon Ban.
  7. Any energy legislation that does not provide for rigorous develpopment of our own resources, drilling here and drilling now, and at-home refining of our oil reserves off the coasts, in the oil shales, and in the ANWR.
  8. Any effort to accept signature of the Kyoto Protocol in the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.
  9. Any effort to accept signature of the United Nations Law of the Sea.
I believe that we cannot, and must not, get into a trap of hoping the worst for our country in order to politically defeat our opposition, as the democrats have done for eight years reagrding President Bush. Such a stance is completely counter productive and destructive to our nation and only leads to worse probllems. So, I personally and sincerely wish the best for and pray for the Obama administration as they take office, that our nation will be well defended and prospered under their leadership.

But when plans are proposed that are contrary to those aims, then it not only becomes important to use reasoned dialog and whatever legal and political recourse available to us to resist such contrary plans, but it also becomes our patriotic and sacred duty to do so.

That duty can be discharrged without rancor and without wishing ill on our nation or our opposition...but it can also be discharged directly, with confidence in the principles upon which we stand, in an unflinching manner, and with faith in God above.

I urge my own senatros, the GOP senators inparticular, and all senators to discharge their duties to our nation and its citizens accordingly because we will also be watching and voting accordingly.

Thank you very much for your time and attention.

Fair's Fair (good commentary!)

It's been interesting reading conservative blogs over the past couple of days. There appears to be one main issue floating about: how should we treat President-Elect Barack Obama? There are two schools of thought. The first being that he has been elected President of the United States of America and we should treat him with the respect that is due to his office, unlike the left, who attacked President Bush from day one and compared him to Hitler, called him Chimpy, etc. Criticize his policies, but do it respectfully. Those that adhere to this school of thought seems to believe, by doing this, they will be taking the moral high ground, thus following through on their conservative principles. While the debate about just what "conservative principles" actually should be in the wake of McCain's defeat still rages, they're nonetheless all about keeping it classy, because conservatives, apparently, should be classy. The second school of thought is, basically, screw Obama, he's going to get it from all angles, and who cares if he's President---he's not their president, they don't agree with his policies, they think he's a bald-faced liar, and they're going after him.

While I appreciate what the first school is attempting to do, I have to say, my gut instinct is, if we do that, if we take the high road, Republicans will lose the next election. And the one after that. And the one after that...

Dems Target Private Retirement Accounts


Bottom line on the obama effect:

1. Israel is now alone: Unless you believe the Israelis will rely on someone who entered Pakistan on an Indonesian passport as an adult for its security.

War with Iran by Israelis inevitable. Same will never be approved by the Dalibama. Israel must act alone or accept an Iranian Nuclear presence. I don’t believe an existensial threat of this type will be accepted by the Holocaust survivors, and I can’t blame them for feeling this way. Middle East War soon.

2. Dollar collapse by summer now assured. If you thought Bushes economic management incompetant, and it is; wait till you see Waxman, Barney Frank, Pelosi and Harry Reid and Obama and what they will do.

Think “Franklin Raines” multiplied 100 times.

3. Nationalize 401K’s. Won’t work, but guarantees no more savings in America. Bank runs will come sooner rather than later. They will close the banks. When they reopen your account balance will be missing a zero. Or do you think the Government will pay 4 trillion dollars in deposits in cascading bank defaults?

4. Raise Taxes of ALL types. Income, capital gains, excise: Same effect. No capital formation, no savings and, of course, lower Tax revenues. Depression assured.

5. Weaker Military: International Predators will fill the power vacuum. Wars will break out. I am divided on this one. One wonders whether the US military if commanded by Obama, to be deployed abroad, and broke.

6. Gun Control: Restive population will react, negatively. NO one will turn in firearms. Arms will abound.

7. More Government Controls on movement, money, everything.

But With no money to enforce its edicts, there will be corruption in the federal ranks. We will become a country of “Who you know”.

And, to some degree local federal protection rackets.

Government legitimacy already low, will dissipate further. We will start looking like a third world country. If Obama is around long enough, we will look like Kenya, and if he is around long enough , Zimbabwe.

Remember he supported Odingo in Kenya, and odingos atrocities, so we know obamas political bent if he can get away with it.

8. Higher Gas and other commodity prices. You think the Democrats will give anyone a permit to dig or Drill? They will relegislate the 1879 Mining act into the nonmining act of 2010.

No one in the US will even know what I am talking about. But They will know higher prices for coal, and any and all other minerals drawn from the ground. There will be no money to import it, so prices will skyrocket.

Inflation, and severely reduced standards of living will be accelerated by the Obama administration on anyone making less than 1,000,000 a year.

9. Scandal: There will be a hundred “new”Franklin Raines in Government. People with the intellect of Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and Calypso Louie Farrakhan. All of whom live in Obama’s neighborhood. Bill ayers archtypes will run things. It will be a mess. Again, lower expectations for and less legitimacy of the Central Government.

10. Black peoples raised expectations of “free Gas, free Mortgage “ as expressed by one typical voter will be dashed. There is No money. There are only more debt instruments to be sold into markets awash in debt intruments.

Sure the Social security and retirement checks will go out, but they will purchase 1/2 of what they do today.

Same for medicare, Medicaid, Government housing, Foodstamps.

You will get “Free” medical care. Just no doctor or medicine.



Feel the Tolerance & Inclusiveness...

Myself and friend, both in our 70's, stopped at a convenience store Saturday afternoon for beverage.  The store was located about two miles from the center of West Palm Beach, FL.  As we left the store, a group of young black males were outside and they said, "f*ck you motherf*ckers, we in charge now."

We said nothing but simply got in the car and dialed 911.  The police responded, took our names and explanation, confronted the black males, and a verbal confrontation began.  It was over quickly, as the police arrested the ring leader and told the others to leave the area.  The arrested boy continued to shout at us with verbal threats and abusive language. 

That huge voter turnout? Didn't happen

Do-Nothing Congressional Dems Plan To … Do Nothing!

Well, its looks like the Congressional Democrats are not ready to lead next year, but ready to duck and run for cover. They clearly are realizing their ideas only would cause damage to this country (which is what conservatives warned all through the election):

After moving quickly with an economic stimulus plan that includes cutting middle-class taxes, Democrats said they will open the 111th Congress with less ambitious agenda items that have been blocked repeatedly by the Bush administration, such as lifting a ban on federal funding for stem cell research.

“Obviously, we’re not going to do health care in the first month or two,” House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (D-Md.) said Friday.

Hoyer also cited energy independence and an overhaul of the federal No Child Left Behind legislation as issues that would have to wait until later in the year, if not the next, as leaders seek to build broad consensus on the more controversial issues.

As predicted they have no desire to ease this nation’s energy crisis, probably because they cannot see how to pass Green House Gas cap/trades which will spike the nation’s energy prices through the roof. The government take over and nationalization of health care has to wait as well. Seems the only thing Congress will do is establish factories of young human beings to harvest for their spare parts (stem cells) - which ironically do not provide relief to any illness or condition like the adult stem cell therapies which are multiplying like rabbits. If Congress wants to save lives and help the sick put money into Adult Stem Cell Research.

Clearly dems know their socialistic plans would cripple this economy:

Instead, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) intends to chart a course that will first deal with smaller pieces of legislation that already enjoy some bipartisan support and should be able to pass quickly.

“Some will be discrete pieces. Some will be comprehensive. The comprehensive pieces will take longer,” Pelosi told reporters last week.

These “discrete” items should allow Democrats to record some early victories as they prepare for the bigger battles ahead

But Democrats in Congress are not unanimously supportive of some of the big-ticket agenda items. Many fiscal conservatives in the party are concerned about how such large undertakings would be paid for, given the record $455 billion deficit for the fiscal year that ended in September. A variety of independent experts say the deficit this year could easily hit $1 trillion, which, at 7 percent of the gross domestic product, would be the largest one-year shortfall since 1946.

Hoyer warned that the historic nature of the election did not mean Democrats could overreach.

The fact is there are low-cost, market solutions to a lot of these problems. Opening up drilling does not cost a lot to taxpayers. Health care fixes like allowing small businesses to pool their coverage and therefore get big company discounts on health insurance. As I noted adult stem cells are creating therapies against diseases as an incredible race.

And on the energy level, look what the Bush administration has left this nation as a parting gift:

Nuclear power plants smaller than a garden shed and able to power 20,000 homes will be on sale within five years, say scientists at Los Alamos, the US government laboratory which developed the first atomic bomb.

The miniature reactors will be factory-sealed, contain no weapons-grade material, have no moving parts and will be nearly impossible to steal because they will be encased in concrete and buried underground.

The US government has licensed the technology to Hyperion, a New Mexico-based company which said last week that it has taken its first firm orders and plans to start mass production within five years. ‘Our goal is to generate electricity for 10 cents a watt anywhere in the world,’ said John Deal, chief executive of Hyperion. ‘They will cost approximately $25m [£13m] each. For a community with 10,000 households, that is a very affordable $250 per home.’

Add in a victory in Iraq and the penning in of al-Qaeda in the tribal regions of Pakistan, the lowest tax rates for decades, a ban on killing human beings at their embryo stage for spare parts. Bush did a lot, but maybe the Dems plan on holding power by doing nothing? There is a certain positive aspect to a paralyzed federal government.

What this tells me is the Dems know they cannot make good on their promise of Nirvana. Any major move they attempt will end in catastrophic failure. So for two years Obama will be able to accomplish nothing as well. There will be a lot of blame game and finger pointing, but the bottom line is the Dems promised the Nirvana if elected. If they fail to produce they fail in the eye of the voters.

The next generation is about to get a rude lesson in reality: Politicians will promise the naive anything to get elected, and then produce any excuse to explain why they never meant any of those promises.

...what it should expect from a "black president"

I see that many blacks are thinking along the lines of a Robert Mugabe.

I have been in several locations (near DC) since the election where groups of blacks were seriously talking about how they were going to be able to move into house they saw and liked once Obamamama was sworn in.

Many blacks, some almost look like they once had a brain, actually think they own everything in the country now and are just waiting for the command from their dear leader that it is OK to take what they want.

I have seen this around the DC area every day since the election results.

I just bought more brass bullets, primers, and powder and now that I have a progressive reloader rather than my old RCBS Rockchucker I will be busy on my off time backing up my answer to anyone that may think my home is now their property.

That Didn't Take Long... Liberal Media Begins Attack On Talk Radio

They're still counting votes from Tuesday's election but the liberal media is already attacking "angry" conservatives on talk radio.
They're paving the way for the Fairness Doctrine.
The Los Angeles Times-- the same news outfit that would not release video of Obama toasting a former PLO operative at a Chicago Jew-bash-- wrote about the angry conservative talk radio hosts today:

You have to give Rush Limbaugh a perverse kind of credit. At least when he is demonizing Barack Obama, fabricating Obama policies, blaming Obama for single-handedly causing the recession and the stock market crash, he doesn't pretend to be fair.

Opening his first post-election rant against the president-elect, Limbaugh launched in with a certain relish. "The game," he told his radio listeners, "has begun."

Sean Hannity, on the other hand, insisted on feigning a post-election detente, telling his Fox News television audience last week, "I want Barack Obama to succeed."

Didn't he think anyone would notice that, just a moment later, he was back parroting the failed campaign argument that Obama is a "mystery"?

...But many on the losing end of last week's election want to hold on to their anger. And there are those in the media -- led by the likes of Limbaugh and Hannity -- only too ready to feed that animus, along with their own ratings.
Look for Democrats to bring up the Fairness Doctrine sometime around July '09.

The Radio Equalizer has more on the latest attacks on talk radio.

"But when I talk to my friends here in Blue Massachusetts, I am continually amazed at how nobody seems to care about the death of political speech, as long as it's not their political speech which is being murdered."

"Liberals will reverse the Age of Enlightenment before Obama's 4 years are through. They're starting to remind me of medieval peasants.  And now, despite Obama promising to do what's right for America and that he wouldn't "divide" the nation, he's looking to reverse Bush's order to drill. This, after polls have made it very clear that a majority of Americans want to see drilling go ahead."

Reaganism can still sell because it provides relevant issues to life and government. But we have an emerging culture which elected Obama, who seems to not care about facts or logic. They are PostModern in worldview. They “feel” their way to the voting booth. If they don’t “feel” it, they don’t vote. They want to be inspired, feel good. They do NOT respond to factual, logical life relevancy. They respond to cultural relevancy. We must convey Reaganism in culturally relevant terms to capture this crowd - or we can be satisfied with the results that we have gotten thuse far. Palin represents someone who is “cool” because she shatters all stereotypes. She seems authentic. Once they see how authentic Obama really is, his show will be over.

The Obama "rally" continues on Wall Street

The national debt is now over $11 trillion with no end in sight. Wait until Obama starts spending money we don’t have on top of that.

Yep. Our national debt level is completely out of control now. Obama cannot raise net tax revenue in a rapidly slowing economy. No way to stop the run away freight train short of the confiscation of the publics assets. At that point we will be in full blown depression. Some think were have already entered depression. The Financial Bank and the Auto Manufacture sectors sure feel that we are in a depression now.

The return of The Wall? (Jamie Gorelick for AG?)
