  • President Is Getting Poor Grades On Economy As Optimism Erodes

    "THE JOB IMPACT OF THE AMERICAN RECOVERY AND REINVESTMENT PLAN"
    - Christina Romer, Chair-Nominee, Council of Economic Advisors
    - Jared Bernstein, Office of the Vice-President-elect
    January 9, 2009.



    "I don’t believe it’s too late to change course, but it will be if we don’t take dramatic action as soon as possible. If nothing is done, this recession could linger for years. The unemployment rate could reach double digits. Our economy could fall $1 trillion short of its full capacity, which translates into more than $12,000 in lost income for a family of four...That is why I have moved quickly to work with my economic team and leaders of both parties on an American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan that will immediately jumpstart job creation and long-term growth.... I urge Congress to move as quickly as possible... it is altogether likely that things may get worse before they get better. But that is all the more reason for Congress to act without delay."
    ~ Barack Obama,
    warning how bad unemployment might get if his $787Billion spending bill is not immediately passed, even without anyone reading it. January 8, 2009

    You Are Who You Associate With:

    Obama either didn't know or didn't care about whom he intentionally chose to associate with in college just as long as they were, in his own words, "the more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist Professors and the structural feminists and punk-rock performance poets... we were resisting bourgeois society's stifling constraints."

    Obama either didn't know or didn't care that his friend and fellow partner on several Chicago community organization boards and in whose home he launched his political career, William Ayers, was an infamous and unrepentent radical leftwing terrorist who boasted about planting bombs and killing people in this country.

    Obama either didn't know or didn't care that the Chicago Community Organizing group that he chose to join was founded by self-avowed Communist-supporter Saul Alinsky (who actually dedicated his book, "Rules For Radicals" to Lucifer) and that he was mentored by one of Alinsky's students John L. McKnight who was also an unapologetic radical Socialist.

    Obama either didn't know or didn't care that his colleague, supporter and personal friend, Rashid Khalidi, who was married to the President of the Arab American Action Network to which Obama helped funnel $40,000 from one of his Community groups, was also a long-time anti-Israeli and an ardent supporter of the PLO while working for the Palestinian news agency, Wafa.

    Obama either didn't know or didn't care that Raila Odinga, the Kenyan candidate for President that Obama was directly communicating with, that Obama had met with and whom Obama was directly supporting during Odinga's campaign had repeatedly stated that Odinga's goal for Kenya was create a "safe haven" for Islamic terrorists, that Odinga would institute radical Islamic Sharia Law, that Odinga had close financial ties to Mohammar Khadaffi and that Odinga had been responsible for the mass persecution, attacks and killings of Christians in Kenya.

    Obama either didn't know or didn't care that his friend Tony Rezko who bailed Obama out of financial trouble and bought him a home was a such a corrupt slumlord that he was just convicted for years of committing extortion, fraud and money laundering.

    Obama either didn't know or didn't care that one of his vice-presidential search committee advisors, Jim Johnson was the former Chairman & CEO of Fannie Mae which, in a 2004 Federal Investigation, was found to have improperly deferred $200 million in expenses, substantially under-reported his own compensation to the tune of almost $20 million and who personally received below market-rate loans from Countrywide Financial because the corporation considered them to be "FOA's" - "Friends of Angelo" (Countrywide CEO Angelo Mozilo).

    Obama either didn't know or didn't care that his close friend, Frank Marshall Davis, whom he wrote about with such admiration in his book "Dreams Of My Father" was a radical member of the Communist Party USA, an ardent Stalinist and a outspoken supporter of the 60's Black-Power movement.

    Obama either didn't know or didn't care that his own Church, Trinity United, was founded on the racist 'Black Liberation Theology" teachings of the 1960's radical Black-Supremacist James Cone who wrote and spoke extensively of his hatred of whites including: "If God is not for us and against white people, then he is a murderer, and we had better kill him... Black theology will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy."

    Obama either didn't know or didn't care that his own pastor of over 20 years, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, who conducted his marriage and children's baptisms and served as adivsor on his campaign had regularly spewed the most offensive, racist, white-hating, America-hating "sermons" in his very own Church and praised the likes of Louis Farrahkahn, Mohammar Khaddaffi and sympathized with Hamas.

    Gee, what a wonderful judge of character this guy is.

  • The Fannie/Freddie Talking Points Presentation

    10/09/2008 3:40:15 PM PDT · 7 of 8
    The_Macallan to bugseye

    Gee, nothing like striking while the iron is... cold. Where were the Reps with this two weeks ago!? A day late and a dollar short - more like two weeks late and $700 Billion dollars short.


    Fannie-Mae Talking Points:

    * Throughout the 1990s, the Clinton Adminstration and Democrat-controlled Congress pressured FannieMae to start offering more sub-prime loans to people with poor credit who couldn't normally afford or qualify for home loans (including many minorities). "Fannie Mae has agreed to buy more loans with very low down payments-or with mortgage payments that represent an unusually high percentage of a buyer's income. That's made banks willing to lend to lower-income families they once might have rejected."
    (Source: LA Times, 1999)

    * Warnings were raised as early as 1999 that this program could come back to devastate Fannie Mae.
    (Source: NYTimes, Sept. 1999)

    * Starting in 2001, President Bush has been publicly calling for Congressional reform of FannieMae/FreddieMac - including 17 times in 2008 alone.
    (Source: WhiteHouse, Sept 2008.)

    * In 2003, President Bush recommended a new agency to oversee FannieMae/Freddie Mac which was even then known to be broken. Democrats not only blocked this effort - they DENIED there was even a problem: ''These two entities -- Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac -- are not facing any kind of financial crisis,'' said Representative Barney Frank of Massachusetts, the ranking Democrat on the Financial Services Committee.
    (Source: NYTimes, Sept. 2003)

    * Barney Frank, who is openly gay, was actually involved in a long-time romantic relationship with a FannieMae executive Herb Moses for ten years throughout most of the 1990s. Frank had in the past been called upon to use his influence on the House Financial Services Committee to support FannieMae.
    (Source: Business & Media Institute)

    * In 2004, House Democrats continued to vehemently deny there were any problems with FannieMae/FreddieMac and viciously attacked those who suggested that they were heading into trouble and needing reform.
    (Source: Video of House Democrats)

    * In 2005, Republicans in Congress did create legislation to regulate and reform FannieMae/FreddieMac and to try to avert this coming disaster. John McCain supported and was a co-sponsor of that bill. McCain did what he could to stop this disaster years ago.
    (Source: Congressional Record)

    * Democrats in the Senate killed that Republican Bill to regulate and reform Fannie/Freddie right before the 2006 election. After that Democrats took control of the House and Senate in 2006, there were no more serious attempts made to avert the coming meltdown of FannieMae/FreddieMac by the Democrat-controlled Congress.

    * Since 2006, Barack Obama has received $125,000 in campaign contributions from FannieMae/FreddieMac employees and PACs - more per year than any other member of Congress.
    (Source: 1989-2008)

    * Obama is the second largest recipient of total campaign contributions from Fannie/Freddie PACs - fellow Democratic Senator Chris Dodd is #1. Dodd also oversees the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Development - and he made sure that no one did anything to address the long-standing problems with FannieMae.

    * In the 1990s, Jim Johnson was Chairman and CEO of FannieMae. In 2004, a Federal Investigation found that during Johnson's tenure, FannieMae had improperly deferred $200 million in expenses, over-reported its value and later found that FannieMae substantially under-reported Johnson's compensation to the tune of almost $20 million.

    * After Johnson's tenure, Franklin D. Raines was Fannie Mae Chairman/CEO until 2004 and he also supported these risky, sub-prime loan programs. In 2004, Raines was forced to take an "early retirement" from Fannie Mae while under investigation by the Securities & Exchange Commission and lawsuits over "accounting irregularities". Raines settled those lawsuits this year by paying millions in penalities.

    * Franklin Raines has been tapped as an economic advisor to Barack Obama's Presidential campaign and Jim Johnson worked on Barack Obama vice-presidential search committee.
    (Sources: Wash. Post July 2008, Wash. Post Aug 2008)


    BOTTOMLINE:
    - The FannieMae "subprime" problem began with the Clinton Administration and the Democrat-controlled Congress in the early 90s.
    - Warnings were sounded in the late '90s of a coming financial disaster.
    - President Bush tried repeatedly to fix this problem since 2001 - but Democrats denied the problem it even existed.
    - Republicans in Congress tried to fix this problem - but Democrats effectively blocked them.
    - Proposals for bipartisan solutions stopped when Democrats took control of Congress.
    - Democrats even viciously attacked people who tried to alert Congress of the growing FannieMae problem.
    - Democrats who are NOW claiming they can fix the problem (like Frank, Dodd, Obama, etc.) are the exact same ones who ignored the problem, who denied the problem, who are tained by FannieMae contributions and obvious conflicts of interest and who are still associated and entwined with failed and discredited FannieMae CEOs.
  • Now All Inconventient Facts About Obama Are 'False Rumors'

    10/09/2008 9:58:33 AM PDT · 22 of 34

    Obama Just Can't Get On The Right Side Of Any Issue.



    Barack Obama Was Wrong - The Surge Worked In Iraq:

    * US casulaties are down almost 80%, violence is down even more to the lowest levels since the war started and it's directly due to the troop surge that John McCain was among the first to support. The surge worked, Al Qaeda In Iraq is being neutralized and stability and cooperation is growing among Iraqis. Barack Obama was wrong to oppose the surge and was wrong when he said it wouldn't work and was wrong when he said that it would make the violence worse.

    And now, faced with the undeniable success of the surge, Obama has the audacity to simply distort the truth, in an interview aired the very night that John McCain accepted the Republican Presidential Nomination, saying that "nobody anticipated" the surge would succeed like it did. John McCain thought it would work, knew it would work and that's why he pushed for it from the very beginning.
    In Barack Obama's First Major Foreign Policy Decision As US Senator - He Voted Against The Surge And He Got It Completely Wrong.


    FannieMae former-CEO's Golden Parachutes Landed Them Right Into The Obama Campaign:

    * John McCain was right to co-sponsor a Senate Bill to reform FannieMae's recklessness back in 2005, to head off the coming subprime mortgage meltdown. That bill was blocked by Senate Democrats. The Chairman & CEO of FannieMae at the time, Franklin D. Raines, soon took an "early retirement" amid investigations by the SEC for "accounting irregularities" and was sued for his mismanagement of FannieMae, lawsuits which he just settled this year by paying out millions in penalites. Raines is now one of Barack Obama's economic advisors.

    And another former FannieMae Chairman & CEO, Jim Johnson, led Barack Obama's vice-presidential search committee. In 2004, a Federal Investigation found during Johnson's tenure, FannieMae had improperly deferred $200 million in expenses and later found that FannieMae substantially under-reported Johnson's compensation to the tune of almost $20 million. Coincidentially, Obama has received more campaign contributions from FannieMae employees than ALL other Senators except one, Senator Chris Dodd.
    We Need More Reform And More Accountibility With Less Favoritism And Less Conflict Of Interest.


    Allowing Born-Alive Babies To Die Is Not Part Of A Woman's Choice:

    * When asked by Saddleback Church Pastor Rick Warren "When does a baby get human rights", Barack Obama said glibly that it was "above my pay grade". How can a man who wants to be President Of The United States say that questions about Human Rights are "above my pay grade"? Barack Obama, while Illinois State Senator actually voted several times to allow newborn infants, babies born alive who survived late-term abortions, to be neglected, denied medical care, starved and killed in hospitals as a form of "reproductive rights" and "women's choice".

    Even dogs would have more rights than babies who survive abortion under laws supported by Obama. Barack Obama voted on record to say that those living breathing infants do not have human rights and yet he didn't even have the courage to answer that same question at a time when the people of the nation he wants to lead are all watching and listening. That's just shameful cowardice.
    We Can't Protect Human Rights If We Can't Protect Human Life.


    ALL Americans Will Pay For Obama's Tax Increases:

    * When taxes on business go up, customers pay for that tax in higher prices in goods and services. Barack Obama's tax increase on business will be payed by everyday consumers and that affects EVERYBODY. Obama also wants to double the capital-gains tax on investments. When capital-gains taxes go up, it stifles investment incentives which is a direct hit for any middle-class folks with stock investments, and an indirect hit to anyone wih an IRA, 401k or pension because of the stifling ripple effect it would cause in the markets.

    And Barack Obama has even admitted himself that he wants to double the capital-gains tax NOT to raise revenue, but rather to get even with people who make money on their market investments - he said back in April 2008 that he wanted to raise the capital-gains tax NOT to increase revenue but simply "for the purpose of fairness". How is it "fair" to punish people who invest their money and put their money at risk in the stock market? If anything it punishes the entire market and everyone who has any investments in the market (including IRAs, 401ks, pensions, etc.) will be punished by a stifled stock market that is smothered by higher taxes "for the purpose of fairness".
    Taxing "The Rich" Does Not Create Jobs Or Wealth For The Poor.


    You Don't Control Spending By Creating New Spending Programs:

    * Barack Obama's own campaign website details no less than $200 Billion per year in new spending programs or over a quarter of a trillion dollars in new spending in just his first four years as President. $85 Billion-a-year in income-tax credits to non-payers of income-tax, $65 Billion-a-year "global poverty tax", $65 Billion-a-year gov't health care plan, $30 Billion-a-year for "free" college tuition, $25 Billion-a-year increase in foreign aid, $18 Billion-a-year in education spending, $15 Billion-a-year in green energy, $5 Billion-a-year universal mortgage credit, $5 Billion mortgage bailout plan, $2 Billion-a-year "Clean Technologies Venture Capital" slush fund, $3.5 Billion for a national service plan, $1.5 Billion "paid-leave" funded by the gov't. Put it all together, and we are talking about a $200 billon plan, $800 Billion over four years.

    And these are just the STARTING figures. As a universal rule, gov't programs always end up costing far more than their projected to cost when first proposed. And this doesn't even consider the $700 Billion FannieMae/FreddieMac bailout being pushed through Congress right now.
    Barack Obama's Answer To Every Domestic Issue Starts With A Billion Dollars And Ends With A Bigger Government Program.


    Inconsistent Rhetoric Reveals Inconsistent Resolve:

    * While campaigning in Oregon in April 2008, Barack Obama nonchalantly dismissed the very serious notion that Iran is a threat to the US saying, "They don't pose a serious threat to us... Iran may spend one one-hundredth of what we spend on the military. I mean, if Iran ever tried to pose a serious threat to us, they wouldn't stand a chance". Then, just two days later, Obama proclaimed, "Iran is a grave threat. It has an illicit nuclear program, it supports terrorism across the region..." Well, which is it? Is Iran a threat or not?

    Confusing statements such as this do not show a confidence of understanding or resolve. Back in August 2007, Barack Obama stated categorically that he would certainly launch military attacks within Pakistan against terrorists without then-President Mushariff's approval or cooperation "If we have actionable intelligence about high-value terrorist targets and President Musharraf won't act, we will,". Pakistan is a nuclear power and ally in the region. Apparently Obama thinks Iran is less of a threat than Pakistan because he has said repeatedly since then that he'd prefer to use economic santions against Iran if they don't cooperate with stopping their nuclear program - but if Pakistan is uncooperative about terrorists hiding in their mountain caves, he says he'd launch military attacks inside Pakistan.

    But then, we don't even know if Obama is serious when he says he would support economic santions against Iran. Last year Obama was one of only few Senators who voted against the bipartisan-supported Kyl-Lieberman Amendment which would impose economic sanctions against the Iranian Revolutionary Guard. Even Harry Reid, Hillary Clinton, Chuck Schumer and Dick Durbin voted for sanctions, but Obama voted 'no' calling it "saber-rattling". Again, Obama's recent trail of very inconsistent stances regarding the threat of nuclear-armed Islamicists (whether they be in Pakistan or Iran) is not something that creates confidence in ANY position Obama says he has regarding these threats.
    Obama's Inconsistent And Contradictory Responses To These Serious National Security Threats Are Inconsistent And Contradictory With Him Being Taken Seriously About Any Response To National Security Threats.

    * When asked by Saddleback Church Pastor Rick Warren "When does a baby get human rights", Barack Obama said glibly that it was "above my pay grade". How can a man who wants to be President Of The United States say that questions about Human Rights are "above my pay grade"? Barack Obama, while Illinois State Senator actually voted several times to allow newborn infants, babies born alive who survived late-term abortions, to be neglected, denied medical care, starved and killed in hospitals as a form of "reproductive rights" and "women's choice".

    Even dogs would have more rights than babies who survive abortion under laws supported by Obama. Barack Obama voted on record to say that those living breathing infants do not have human rights and yet he didn't even have the courage to answer that same question at a time when the people of the nation he wants to lead are all watching and listening. That's just shameful cowardice.

    We Can't Protect Human Rights If We Can't Protect Human Life.

McKnight who was also an unapologetic radical Socialist.

    Obama either didn't know or didn't care that his colleague, supporter and personal friend, Rashid Khalidi, who was married to the President of the Arab American Action Network to which Obama helped funnel $40,000 from one of his Community groups, was also a long-time anti-Israeli and an ardent supporter of the PLO while working for the Palestinian news agency, Wafa.

    Obama either didn't know or didn't care that his friend Tony Rezko who bailed Obama out of financial trouble and bought him a home was a such a corrupt slumlord that he was just convicted for years of committing extortion, fraud and money laundering.

    Obama either didn't know or didn't care that one of his vice-presidential search committee advisors, Jim Johnson was the former Chairman & CEO of Fannie Mae which, in a 2004 Federal Investigation, was found to have improperly deferred $200 million in expenses, substantially under-reported his own compensation to the tune of almost $20 million and who personally received below market-rate loans from Countrywide Financial because the corporation considered them to be "FOA's" - "Friends of Angelo" (Countrywide CEO Angelo Mozilo).

    Obama either didn't know or didn't care that his close friend, Frank Marshall Davis, whom he wrote about with such admiration in his book "Dreams Of My Father" was a radical member of the Communist Party USA, an ardent Stalinist and a outspoken supporter of the 60's Black-Power movement.

    Obama either didn't know or didn't care that his own Church, Trinity United, was founded on the racist 'Black Liberation Theology" teachings of the 1960's radical Black-Supremacist James Cone who wrote and spoke extensively of his hatred of whites including: "If God is not for us and against white people, then he is a murderer, and we had better kill him... Black theology will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy."

    Obama either didn't know or didn't care that his own pastor of over 20 years, Rev.

    Obama Just Can't Get Anything Right.



    Barack Obama Was Wrong - The Surge Worked In Iraq:

    * US casulaties are down almost 80%, violence is down even more to the lowest levels since the war started and it's directly due to the troop surge that John McCain was among the first to support. The surge worked, Al Qaeda In Iraq is being neutralized and stability and cooperation is growing among Iraqis. Barack Obama was wrong to oppose the surge and was wrong when he said it wouldn't work and was wrong when he said that it would make the violence worse.

    And now, faced with the undeniable success of the surge, Obama has the audacity to simply distort the truth, in an interview aired the very night that John McCain accepted the Republican Presidential Nomination, saying that "nobody anticipated" the surge would succeed like it did. John McCain thought it would work, knew it would work and that's why he pushed for it from the very beginning.
    In Barack Obama's First Major Foreign Policy Decision As US Senator - He Voted Against The Surge And He Got It Completely Wrong.


    FannieMae former-CEO's Golden Parachutes Landed Them Right Into The Obama Campaign:

    * John McCain was right to co-sponsor a Senate Bill to reform FannieMae's recklessness back in 2005, to head off the coming subprime mortgage meltdown. That bill was blocked by Senate Democrats. The Chairman & CEO of FannieMae at the time, Franklin D. Raines, soon took an "early retirement" amid investigations by the SEC for "accounting irregularities" and was sued for his mismanagement of FannieMae, lawsuits which he just settled this year by paying out millions in penalites. Raines is now one of Barack Obama's economic advisors.

    And another former FannieMae Chairman & CEO, Jim Johnson, led Barack Obama's vice-presidential search committee. In 2004, a Federal Investigation found during Johnson's tenure, FannieMae had improperly deferred $200 million in expenses and later found that FannieMae substantially under-reported Johnson's compensation to the tune of almost $20 million. Coincidentially, Obama has received more campaign contributions from FannieMae employees than ALL other Senators except one, Senator Chris Dodd.
    We Need More Reform And More Accountibility With Less Favoritism And Less Conflict Of Interest.


    Allowing Born-Alive Babies To Die Is Not Part Of A Woman's Choice:

    * When asked by Saddleback Church Pastor Rick Warren "When does a baby get human rights", Barack Obama said glibly that it was "above my pay grade". How can a man who wants to be President Of The United States say that questions about Human Rights are "above my pay grade"? Barack Obama, while Illinois State Senator actually voted several times to allow newborn infants, babies born alive who survived late-term abortions, to be neglected, denied medical care, starved and killed in hospitals as a form of "reproductive rights" and "women's choice".

    Even dogs would have more rights than babies who survive abortion under laws supported by Obama. Barack Obama voted on record to say that those living breathing infants do not have human rights and yet he didn't even have the courage to answer that same question at a time when the people of the nation he wants to lead are all watching and listening. That's just shameful cowardice.
    We Can't Protect Human Rights If We Can't Protect Human Life.


    ALL Americans Will Pay For Obama's Tax Increases:

    * When taxes on business go up, customers pay for that tax in higher prices in goods and services. Barack Obama's tax increase on business will be payed by everyday consumers and that affects EVERYBODY. Obama also wants to double the capital-gains tax on investments. When capital-gains taxes go up, it stifles investment incentives which is a direct hit for any middle-class folks with stock investments, and an indirect hit to anyone wih an IRA, 401k or pension because of the stifling ripple effect it would cause in the markets.

    And Barack Obama has even admitted himself that he wants to double the capital-gains tax NOT to raise revenue, but rather to get even with people who make money on their market investments - he said back in April 2008 that he wanted to raise the capital-gains tax NOT to increase revenue but simply "for the purpose of fairness". How is it "fair" to punish people who invest their money and put their money at risk in the stock market? If anything it punishes the entire market and everyone who has any investments in the market (including IRAs, 401ks, pensions, etc.) will be punished by a stifled stock market that is smothered by higher taxes "for the purpose of fairness".
    Taxing "The Rich" Does Not Create Jobs Or Wealth For The Poor.


    You Don't Control Spending By Creating New Spending Programs:

    * Barack Obama's own campaign website details no less than $200 Billion per year in new spending programs or over a quarter of a trillion dollars in new spending in just his first four years as President. $85 Billion-a-year in income-tax credits to non-payers of income-tax, $65 Billion-a-year "global poverty tax", $65 Billion-a-year gov't health care plan, $30 Billion-a-year for "free" college tuition, $25 Billion-a-year increase in foreign aid, $18 Billion-a-year in education spending, $15 Billion-a-year in green energy, $5 Billion-a-year universal mortgage credit, $5 Billion mortgage bailout plan, $2 Billion-a-year "Clean Technologies Venture Capital" slush fund, $3.5 Billion for a national service plan, $1.5 Billion "paid-leave" funded by the gov't. Put it all together, and we are talking about a $200 billon plan, $800 Billion over four years.

    And these are just the STARTING figures. As a universal rule, gov't programs always end up costing far more than their projected to cost when first proposed. And this doesn't even consider the $700 Billion FannieMae/FreddieMac bailout being pushed through Congress right now.
    Barack Obama's Answer To Every Domestic Issue Starts With A Billion Dollars And Ends With A Bigger Government Program.


    Inconsistent Rhetoric Reveals Inconsistent Resolve:

    * While campaigning in Oregon in April 2008, Barack Obama nonchalantly dismissed the very serious notion that Iran is a threat to the US saying, "They don't pose a serious threat to us... Iran may spend one one-hundredth of what we spend on the military. I mean, if Iran ever tried to pose a serious threat to us, they wouldn't stand a chance". Then, just two days later, Obama proclaimed, "Iran is a grave threat. It has an illicit nuclear program, it supports terrorism across the region..." Well, which is it? Is Iran a threat or not?

    Confusing statements such as this do not show a confidence of understanding or resolve. Back in August 2007, Barack Obama stated categorically that he would certainly launch military attacks within Pakistan against terrorists without then-President Mushariff's approval or cooperation "If we have actionable intelligence about high-value terrorist targets and President Musharraf won't act, we will,". Pakistan is a nuclear power and ally in the region. Apparently Obama thinks Iran is less of a threat than Pakistan because he has said repeatedly since then that he'd prefer to use economic santions against Iran if they don't cooperate with stopping their nuclear program - but if Pakistan is uncooperative about terrorists hiding in their mountain caves, he says he'd launch military attacks inside Pakistan.

    But then, we don't even know if Obama is serious when he says he would support economic santions against Iran. Last year Obama was one of only few Senators who voted against the bipartisan-supported Kyl-Lieberman Amendment which would impose economic sanctions against the Iranian Revolutionary Guard. Even Harry Reid, Hillary Clinton, Chuck Schumer and Dick Durbin voted for sanctions, but Obama voted 'no' calling it "saber-rattling". Again, Obama's recent trail of very inconsistent stances regarding the threat of nuclear-armed Islamicists (whether they be in Pakistan or Iran) is not something that creates confidence in ANY position Obama says he has regarding these threats.
    Obama's Inconsistent And Contradictory Responses To These Serious National Security Threats Are Inconsistent And Contradictory With Him Being Taken Seriously About Any Response To National Security Threats.

    Why The Sub-Prime/Fannie-Mae meltdown?

    * Throughout the 1990s, the Clinton Adminstration and Democrat-controlled Congress pressured FannieMae to start offering more sub-prime loans to people with poor credit who couldn't normally afford or qualify for home loans (including many minorities). "Fannie Mae has agreed to buy more loans with very low down payments-or with mortgage payments that represent an unusually high percentage of a buyer's income. That's made banks willing to lend to lower-income families they once might have rejected."
    (Source: LA Times, 1999)

    * Warnings were raised as early as 1999 that this program could come back to devastate Fannie Mae.
    (Source: NYTimes, Sept. 1999)

    * Starting in 2001, President Bush has been publicly calling for Congressional reform of FannieMae/FreddieMac - including 17 times in 2008 alone.
    (Source: WhiteHouse, Sept 2008.)

    * In 2003, President Bush recommended a new agency to oversee FannieMae/Freddie Mac which was even then known to be broken. Democrats not only blocked this effort - they DENIED there was even a problem: ''These two entities -- Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac -- are not facing any kind of financial crisis,'' said Representative Barney Frank of Massachusetts, the ranking Democrat on the Financial Services Committee.
    (Source: NYTimes, Sept. 2003)

    * Barney Frank, who is openly gay, was actually involved long-time romatic relationship with a FannieMae executive Herb Moses for ten years throughout most of the 1990s. Frank had in the past been called upon to use his influence on the House Financial Services Committee to support FannieMae.
    (Source: Business & Media Institute)

    * In 2004, House Democrats continued to vehemently deny there were any problems with FannieMae/FreddieMac and viciously attacked those who suggested that they were heading into trouble and needing reform.
    (Source: Video of House Democrats)

    * In 2005, Republicans in Congress did create legislation to regulate and reform FannieMae/FreddieMac and to try to avert this coming disaster. John McCain supported and was a co-sponsor of that bill. McCain did what he could to stop this disaster years ago.
    (Source: Congressional Record)

    * Democrats in the Senate killed that Republican Bill to regulate and reform Fannie/Freddie right before the 2006 election. After that Democrats took control of the House and Senate in 2006, there were no more serious attempts made to avert the coming meltdown of FannieMae/FreddieMac by the Democrat-controlled Congress.

    * Since 2006, Barack Obama has received $125,000 in campaign contributions from FannieMae/FreddieMac employees and PACs - more per year than any other member of Congress.
    (Source: 1989-2008)

    * Obama is the second largest recipient of total campaign contributions from Fannie/Freddie PACs - fellow Democratic Senator Chris Dodd is #1. Dodd also oversees the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Development - and he made sure that no one did anything to address the long-standing problems with FannieMae.

    * In the 1990s, Jim Johnson was Chairman and CEO of FannieMae. In 2004, a Federal Investigation found that during Johnson's tenure, FannieMae had improperly deferred $200 million in expenses, over-reported its value and later found that FannieMae substantially under-reported Johnson's compensation to the tune of almost $20 million.

    * After Johnson's tenure, Franklin D. Raines was Fannie Mae Chairman/CEO until 2004 and he also supported these risky, sub-prime loan programs. In 2004, Raines was forced to take an "early retirement" from Fannie Mae while under investigation by the Securities & Exchange Commission and lawsuits over "accounting irregularities". Raines settled those lawsuits this year by paying millions in penalities.

    * Franklin Raines has been tapped as an economic advisor to Barack Obama's Presidential campaign and Jim Johnson worked on Barack Obama vice-presidential search committee.
    (Sources: Wash. Post July 2008, Wash. Post Aug 2008)


    BOTTOMLINE:
    - The FannieMae "subprime" problem began with the Clinton Administration and the Democrat-controlled Congress in the early 90s.
    - Warnings were sounded in the late '90s of a coming financial disaster.
    - President Bush tried repeatedly to fix this problem since 2001 - but Democrats denied the problem it even existed.
    - Republicans in Congress tried to fix this problem - but Democrats effectively blocked them.
    - Proposals for bipartisan solutions stopped when Democrats took control of Congress.
    - Democrats even viciously attacked people who tried to alert Congress of the growing FannieMae problem.
    - Democrats who are NOW claiming they can fix the problem (like Frank, Dodd, Obama, etc.) are the exact same ones who ignored the problem, who denied the problem, who are tained by FannieMae contributions and obvious conflicts of interest and who are still associated and entwined with failed and discredited FannieMae CEOs.

    "The Iraqi government, the officials, had lied consistently about their having chemical and biological weapons.... they said we don't have any biological weapons. Then, of course, we found out that they had some 2100 gallons of anthrax... They said we don't have any chemical weapons and we found they had four tons of VX... They're also developing something called ricin...which is a deadly poison for which there is no antidote."
    ~ Secretary of Defense William S. Cohen,
    April 2, 1998

    "We urge you... to take necessary actions (including, if appropriate, air and missle strikes on suspect Iraqi sights) to respond effectively to the threat posed by Iraq's refusal to end its weapons of mass destruction programs."
    ~ Senators Tom Daschle, Carl Levin,
    and others October 9, 1998 in a letter to then-President Clinton.

    "Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process."
    ~ Rep. Nancy Pelosi,
    D-CA, December 16, 1998.

    "Even today, Iraq is not nearly disarmed. Based on highly credible intelligence, UNSCOM [the U.N. weapons inspectors] suspects that Iraq still has biological agents like anthrax, botulinum toxin, and clostridium perfringens in sufficient quantity to fill several dozen bombs and ballistic missile warheads, as well as the means to continue manufacturing these deadly agents. Iraq probably retains several tons of the highly toxic VX substance, as well as sarin nerve gas and mustard gas. This agent is stored in artillery shells, bombs, and ballistic missile warheads. And Iraq retains significant dual-use industrial infrastructure that can be used to rapidly reconstitute large-scale chemical weapons production."
    ~ Scott Ritter,
    Former United Nations Weapons Inspector, December 21, 1998.

    "Hussein has... chosen to spend his money on building weapons of mass destruction."
    ~ Sec. State Madeline Albright,
    Nov. 10, 1999.

    "There is no doubt that... Saddam Hussein has reinvigorated his weapons programs. Reports indicate that biological, chemical and nuclear programs continue apace and may be back to pre-Gulf War status. In addition, Saddam continues to redefine delivery systems and is doubtless using the cover of a licit missile program to develop longer-range missiles that will threaten the United States and our allies."
    ~ Senator Joe Lieberman,
    D-CT December 5, 2001, in a letter to President GW Bush.

    "Every day Saddam remains in power with chemical weapons, biological weapons, and the development of nuclear weapons is a day of danger for the United States."
    ~ Senator Joe Lieberman,
    D-CT August, 2002

    "We begin with the common belief that Saddam Hussein is a tyrant and a threat to the peace and stability of the region. He has ignored the mandated of the United Nations and is building weapons of mass destruction and the means of delivering them."
    ~ Senator Carl Levin D-MI,
    September 19, 2002.

    "We know that he has stored secret supplies of biological and chemical weapons throughout his country."
    ~ Al Gore,
    September 23, 2002.

    "Iraq's search for weapons of mass destruction has proven immpossible to... deter, and we should assume that it will continue as long as Saddam is in power."
    ~ Al Gore,
    September 23, 2002.

    "We have known for many years that Saddam Hussein is seeking and developing weapons of mass destruction."
    ~ Senator Ted Kennedy,
    D-MA, September 27, 2002.

    "We are confident that Saddam Hussein retained some stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons and that he has since embarked on a crash course to build up his chemical and biological warfare capability."
    ~ Senator Robert Byrd,
    D-WV, October 3, 2002.

    "I will be voting to give the president of the U. S. the authority to use force - if necessary - to disarm Saddam Hussein because I believe that a deadly arsonal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a real and grave threat to our security."
    ~ Senator John F. Kerry,
    D-MA, October 9, 2002.

    "He has systematically violated... every significant U.N. resolution that has demanded that he disarm and destroy his chemical and biological weapons... this he has refused to do."
    ~ Senator Henry Waxman,
    D-CA, October 10, 2002.

    "In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weap ons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program. He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including al Qaeda members... It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons."
    ~ Senator Hillary Clinton,
    D-NY, October 10, 2002.

    "There is unmistakable evidence that Saddam Hussein is working aggressively to develop neuclear weapons and will likely have neuclear weapons within the next 5 years.....we also should remember we have always underestimated the progress Saddam has made in development of weapons of mass destruction."
    ~ Senator Jay Rockafeller,
    D-WV, October 10, 2002.

    "We are in possession of... compelling evidence that Saddam Hussein has... capacity for the production and storage of weapons of mass destruction."
    ~ Senator Bob Graham,
    D-FL, Dec. 8, 2002.

    "It's a slam-dunk case"
    ~ George Tenet,
    Clinton-appointed CIA Director, December 12, 2002.

    "Without question, we need to disarm Saddam Hussein... he is miscalculating America's response to his... grasp for weapons of mass destruction... So the threat of Saddam Hussein with weapons of mass destruction is real..."
    ~ Senator John F. Kerry,
    D-MA, January 23, 2003.
    And finally...

    "Iraq has declared that it produced about 8,500 litres of this biological warfare agent [Anthrax], which it states it unilaterally destroyed in the summer of 1991. Iraq has provided little evidence for this production and no convincing evidence for its destruction.
    There are strong indications that Iraq produced more anthrax than it declared, and that at least some of this was retained after the declared destruction date. It might still exist.
    There are also indications that the agent [VX nerve gas] was weaponised. In addition, there are questions to be answered concerning the fate of the VX precursor chemicals...
    ...inspectors have found at another site a laboratory quantity of thiodiglycol, a mustard gas precursor.
    In addition, Iraq has refurbished its missile production infrastructure. In particular, Iraq reconstituted a number of casting chambers, which had previously been destroyed under UNSCOM supervision."
    ~ Hans Blix,
    Report to UN Security Council, January 27, 2003.

  • A Whole Wide World Beyond Obama (Bush appeasement Comment Dems React)

    The_Macallan to Red Steel


    "Some seem to believe we should negotiate with terrorists and radicals, as if some ingenious argument will persuade them they have been wrong all along...We have heard this foolish delusion before. As Nazi tanks crossed into Poland in 1939, an American senator declared: 'Lord, if only I could have talked to Hitler, all of this might have been avoided.' We have an obligation to call this what it is –- the false comfort of appeasement, which has been repeatedly discredited by history."
    ~ President Bush
    speaking before the Israeli Knesset on the 60th Anniversary of Israel's statehood.



    "It is sad that President Bush would use a speech to the Knesset on the 6Oth anniversary of Israel's independence to launch a false political attack... Instead of tough talk and no action, we need to do what Kennedy, Nixon and Reagan did and use all elements of American power -- including tough, principled, and direct diplomacy - to pressure countries like Iran and Syria. George Bush knows that I have never supported engagement with terrorists..."
    ~ Sen. Barack Obama
    D-IL thinking the President was talking about HIM.

    "George Bush should be making Israel secure, not slandering Barack Obama from the Knesset."
    ~ Sen. John Kerry
    D-MA, thinking the President was talking about Obama.

    "There is no escaping what the president is doing. It is an attack on Sen. Obama’s position that we should not be avoiding even those we disagree with when it comes to negotiations and diplomacy."
    ~ Sen. Dick Durbin
    D-IL, Senate Majority Whip, thinking the President was talking about Obama.

    "President Bush’s comparison of any Democrat to Nazi appeasers is both offensive and outrageous on the face of it, especially in light of his failures in foreign policy."
    ~ The Beast
    thinking the President was talking about Obama.

    “This is bullshit, this is malarkey. This is outrageous, for the president of the United States to go to a foreign country, to sit in the Knesset... and make this kind of ridiculous statement.”
    ~ Sen. Joe Biden
    D-DE, as eloquent as ever.

    "The tradition has always been that when a U.S. president is overseas, partisan politics stops at the water's edge. President Bush has now taken that principle and turned it on its head: for this White House, partisan politics now begins at the water’s edge, no matter the seriousness and gravity of the occasion. Does the president have no shame?”
    ~ Rep. Rahm Emanuel
    House Democratic Caucus Chairman, thinking the President was talking about THEM.

    "..."beneath the dignity of the office of the president and unworthy of our representation..."
    ~ Rep. Nancy Pelosi
    D-CA, Speaker of the House, thinking the President was talking about THEM.

    "Not surprisingly, the engineer of the worst foreign policy in our nation’s history has fired yet another reckless and reprehensible round. For the President to make this statement before the government of our closest ally as it celebrates a remarkable milestone demeans this historic moment with partisan politics."
    ~ Sen. Harry Reid
    D-NV, Senate Majority Leader thinking the President was talking about THEM.


    Hmmmm.... let's take a walk down memory lane regarding comments made by leading Democrats about President Bush near the end of the first year of the war in Iraq....

    Sen. Ted Kennedy:
    "There was no imminent threat. This was made up in Texas"

    "My belief is this money is being shuffled all around to these political leaders in all parts of the world, bribing them to send in troops."

    "He has broken the basic bond of trust with the American people."

    "In this administration, truth is the first casualty of policy."

    "This whole thing was a fraud"

    "Shamefully we now learn that Saddam's torture chambers reopened under new management, U.S. management."

    Sen. Robert Byrd:
    "...many Iraqis, both Sunni and Shiite, are seething under the yoke of the American occupation."

    "I have wondered anew at the President's stubborn refusal to admit mistakes or express any misgivings over America's unwarranted intervention in Iraq."

    Sen. John Kerry:
    "...he built a fraudulent coalition"

    "Did I expect George Bush to fuck it up as badly as he did? I don't think anybody did."

    "They shut a newspaper that belongs to a legitimate voice in Iraq... It belongs to a voice... which is sort of a terrorist alignment."

    "fraudulent"

    "stunning lack of vision"

    "fake-patriotism"

    "almost stupidity of it"

    "worse than incompetent"

    "crooked, lying"

    "we need a regime change in the United States"

    "arrogant, inept, reckless"

    "screwed-up"

    "unpatriotic"



    Oh but THAT'S all fair game because they all said those "kind, civil, respectful words" about the President in the spring and summer of 2004 during an election year.

    Oh-kay!

    [rolleyes]


    As the article points out - President Bush COULD have been talking about members of the Kennesset who are wishy-washy on defending Israel.

    He COULD have been talking about nearby nations like Egypt, Dubai or Jordan who try to appease Iran with economic and diplomatic measures.

    He COULD have been talking about the UN Security Council and their milquetoast approach to Iran's nuclear ambitions.

    He COULD have been talking about factions in Iraq who are still trying to appease Iran with regards to interfering in Iraqi reconstruction.

    He COULD have been talking about American groups like Code Pink, A.N.S.W.E.R. and others who don't take the daily direct threats against Israel and us by Achmadinijad seriously.

    He COULD have been talking about Jimmy Carter who just recently met with and PRAISED terrorists who wage war to to wipe Israel off the map.

    He COULD have been talking Dennis Kucinich, Ron Paul, Louis Farrakahn or even members of his own State Department who may still naively believe a negotiated diplomatic solution is the only way to stop terrorists.

    He COULD have been talking about ALL of them and more....


    But somehow... SOMEHOW... all those Democrats were so egocentric and paranoid that they could ONLY imagine that Bush was talking ONLY about THEM exclusively.

    Oh the smug, conceited, arrogance and narcissistic vanity of those twit-minded Democratic JACKASSES.

    First of all, you guys know nothing of intent of "Operation Chaos".

    Second of all, Clinton won the states that the Dems NEED to win (Big States, Swing States). Who cares if Obama can win a bunch of Party-insider Caucuses and small states (most of which aren't gonna be in play for them anyway)?

    Thirdly, lighten up Francis.

    We all hear how "close" the Democratic Primaries are and how much Obama is so dominant in the hearts and minds of the average everyday Democratic voter.

    Well if we looked at the Obama v. Clinton match-up in terms of the electoral college - we'd see a very different outlook.

    Presidential elections are won or lost based on Electoral College votes, not based on "delegates", "superdelegates", party caucuses or total popular vote.

    States that hold Primary Elections allow the VOTERS to choose their candidate, as opposed to states that hold caucuses in which voters don't go to the polls but rather Party-insiders do the voting.

    And so to get a clearer picture of the Democratic outlook - I looked through the lens of Primary Election results only and then counted those results in terms of Electoral Votes for each of those states to see whether Obama or Clinton would have an easier time gaining the 270 necessary Electoral Votes to become President.

    And so by tallying up the States won in the Primary Elections (where voters decide the result, not party-insiders) by Obama and Clinton based on their Electoral College votes - here are the results:

    STATE - Electoral Votes (Primary Election Winner)
    Alabama - 9 (Obama )
    Connecticut - 7 (Obama )
    Delaware - 3 (Obama )
    District Of Columbia - 3 (Obama )
    Georgia - 15 (Obama )
    Illinois - 21 (Obama )
    Louisiana - 9 (Obama )
    Maryland - 10 (Obama )
    Mississippi - 6 (Obama )
    Missouri - 11 (Obama )
    North Carolina - 15 (Obama )
    South Carolina - 8 (Obama )
    Utah - 5 (Obama )
    Vermont - 3 (Obama )
    Virginia - 13 (Obama )
    Wisconsin - 10 (Obama )
    148 Primary Electoral Votes For Obama.

    Arizona - 10 (Clinton )
    Arkansas - 6 (Clinton )
    California - 55 (Clinton )
    Florida - 27 (Clinton )
    Indiana - 11 (Clinton )
    Massachusetts - 12 (Clinton )
    Michigan - 17 (Clinton )
    New Hampshire - 4 (Clinton )
    New Jersey - 15 (Clinton )
    New Mexico - 5 (Clinton )
    New York - 31 (Clinton )
    Ohio - 20 (Clinton )
    Oklahoma - 7 (Clinton )
    Pennsylvania - 21 (Clinton )
    Rhode Island - 4 (Clinton )
    Tennessee - 11 (Clinton )
    Texas - 34 (Clinton )
    290 Primary Electoral votes For Clinton.

    Woah! Looks like Clinton has a HUGE lead when it comes to where it counts state-by-state - 1) Actual voters and 2) Electoral Count.

    Oh - well - what about the Caucus states. Shirley all the states won by Obama would make a big difference wouldn't it?

    Okay - let's add in the Caucus states and add up those Electoral College Votes too. However - an odd thing happened in Texas, they had a Primary AND a Caucus - and the results were split between Obama and Clinton, Clinton won the Primary and Obama won the Caucus. So to be fair, I'll give EACH of them the full amount of Texas Electoral Votes:

    STATE - Electoral Votes (Caucus Election Winner)
    Alaska - 3 (Obama )
    Colorado - 9 (Obama )
    Hawaii - 4 (Obama )
    Idaho - 4 (Obama )
    Iowa - 7 (Obama )
    Kansas - 6 (Obama )
    Maine - 4 (Obama )
    Minnesota - 10 (Obama )
    Nebraska - 5 (Obama )
    North Dakota - 3 (Obama )
    Texas - 34 (Obama )
    Washington - 11 (Obama )
    Wyoming - 3 (Obama )
    103 Caucus Electoral Votes For Obama.

    Nevada - 5 (Clinton)
    5 Caucus Electoral Votes For Clinton.

    And so what's the grand total - in terms of Electoral Votes for each?

    Clinton: 295 Total Electoral Votes
    Obama: 251 Total Electoral Votes

    * remember, Texas is counted in for each candidate because they each won there.

    Personally - I actually happen to think the State Primary Election results are FAR more telling than the party-insider polls done for State Caucus elections.

    ETA: And if you look just at "swing" states who had Primary Elections, those states that are going to be the main battlegrounds and ususally determine the outcome of the elections:

    Ohio - 20 (Clinton )
    Pennsylvania - 21 (Clinton )
    Florida - 27 (Clinton )
    New Hampshire - 4 (Clinton )
    Wisconsin - 10 (Obama )


    Bottomline: Don't quit Hill! You can still win this!! LOL!

    The superdelegates are going to have to decide if they want to win enough to risk the wrath of the African American community by snubbing Obama to hand the nomination to Clinton. They can’t win with Obama.

    And that's the beauty of watching this slow-motion trainwreck go on and on! LOL!

    The longer it goes on, the more damage it'll cause them to throw Obama under the bus.

    That's interesting stuff. Thanks for the info.

    But another aspect is the utter CHAOS that would ensue if Hillary is nominated over Obama.

    Oh the carcophany of protests from the usual suspects would be a "riot" to watch. ;)

    Obama belongs to a "Black Liberation Theology" Church that is FOUNDED on the hatred on Whites.

    He followed a Pastor for 20 years who is the most ignorant, racist, America-hating hate-hustler this side of Louis Farrahkan.

    His Church puts Hamas propaganda in their bulletin - and he ends up getting the endorsement of that very same terrorist organization.

    He spent much of his early adult life smoking dope, snorting cocaine and being mentored by unabashed COMMUNISTS and protege's of Saul Alinsky.

    He married an America-hating Black-Radical who followed the writings of Stokley Carmichael and the Black Panthers of the 60's and who, based on her embarassingly narcissistic and academically sophomoric Princeton thesis, should never have been allowed to graduate high school let alone get into Princeton.

    He took money from an unrepetent terrorist who was part of the Weather Underground - and still refuses to completely disavow his friendship with him.

    He maintained close personal and financial ties with a corrupt convicted Chicago crook named Tony Rezko who bailed him out of financial trouble, bought him a home and then got convicted of extortion, fraud and money laundering.

    He WHINED about being asked "like eight questions" at a simple press interview while trying to convince America that he's competent enough to be PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.

    He somehow managed to serve as President of Harvard Law Review without ever publishing a even SINGLE piece of written work.

    He even wrote a book describing how he "found a solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against my mother's race."

    He'll even throw his own grandma from the train for political expediency and say that she's just a "typical White person" who was "bred" to harbor racist views.

    All that yet he refused to wear a pin with the American flag on it because he thinks THAT would send the wrong message.

    "Listen Barack, you didn’t give that speech because you WANTED to. You gave that speech because you HAD to. And why was that Barack? I’ll tell you why! It was because you sat under the teachings of a rabid racist for 2 DECADES!!!! You Barack! NOT me! Don’t lecture me. I’ve spent my years as a white mother teaching my kids, in the words of MLK, to judge someone not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. What have you done? You’ve taken your kids and put them under the racist views of Wright only to raise up another generation to hate. Which one of us is the uniter here Barack?"

    Bravo! Absolutely on target. Send that to major newspapers everywhere.

    A year ago on Hannity & Colmes, that little ignorant loud-mouthed bigot Jeremiah Wright was pummelling Sean Hannity on the air about whether Sean had read any of James Cone's work.

    Jeremiah Wright credits James Cone as being a founder of "Black Theology" which Wright says forms the very foundational beliefs of Barack Obama's Church:


    "Black liberation theology started with Jim Cone in 1968... Do you know liberation theology?... How many books of Cone's have you read? How many books of Cone's have you read?"
    ~ Rev. Jeremiah Wright,
    explaining his Church while berating Sean Hannity, 3/1/07.

    Well for 20 YEARS Obama was an active member and close associate of this "Black Theology" Church founded on the ideas of James Cone - founded on THESE ideas:
      "Black theology refuses to accept a God who is not identified totally with the goals of the black community. If God is not for us and against white people, then he is a murderer, and we had better kill him. The task of black theology is to kill Gods who do not belong to the black community.Black theology will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy. What we need is the divine love as expressed in Black Power, which is the power of black people to destroy their oppressors here and now by any means at their disposal. Unless God is participating in this holy activity, we must reject his love."

      ~ James Cone,
      quoted in “Divine Racism: The Unacknowledged Threshold Issue for Black Theology,” by William R. Jones in African-American Religious Thought: An Anthology, edited by Cornel West and Eddie Glaube (Westminster John Knox Press).


    And here's even more goodness and love from the Founder of Obama's "Black Theology" Religion, James Cone:
      "For white people, God’s reconciliation in Jesus Christ means that God has made black people a beautiful people; and if they are going to be in relationship with God, they must enter by means of their black brothers, who are a manifestation of God’s presence on earth. The assumption that one can know God without knowing blackness is the basic heresy of the white churches. They want God without blackness, Christ without obedience, love without death. What they fail to realize is that in Amereica, God’s revelation on earth has always been black, red, or some other shocking shade, but never white. Whiteness, as revealed in the history of America, is the expression of what is wrong with man. It is a symbol of man’s depravity. God cannot be white even though white churches have portrayed him as white. When we look at what whiteness has done to the minds of men in this country, we can see clearly what the New Testament meant when it spoke of the principalities and powers. To speak of Satan and his powers becomes not just a way of speaking but a fact of reality. When we can see a people who are controlled by an ideology of whiteness, then we know what reconciliation must mean. The coming of Christ means a denial of what we thought we were. It means destroying the white devil in us. Reconciliation to God means that white people are prepared to deny themselves (whiteness), take up the cross (blackness) and follow Christ (black ghetto)."

      ~ James Cone,
      from Black Theology and Black Power, quoted in The Decline of African American Theology: From Biblical Faith to Cultural Captivity by Thabiti M. Anyabwile (Orbis), page 150.


    THAT is the foundational doctrine of Obama's "Black Theology" Church that he CHOSE to join and that he CHOSE to stay in.

    THAT is the belief system that he just couldn't leave to go find a more rational and less racist and hate-based theology.

    THAT is the belief system that he CHOSE to stay in and baptize and raise his children under.

    Obama comes across to the public as a very quiet, reasonable man - yet he is a very devoted adherent and follower of the most vile, bigotted hate-spewing radical racist GARBAGE of the lowest possible level.

    So either he's the most naive and ignorant member of his Church's congregation - or else he just doesn't CARE how vile and hateful his Church's belief system and Pastor is.

    That little ignorant loud-mouthed bigot Jeremiah Wright was pummelling Sean Hannity on his show about whether Sean had read any of James Cone's work last week.

    Jeremiah Wright credits James Cone as being a founder of "Black Theology" which Wright says forms the very foundational beliefs of Barack Obama's Church:

    Obama's Pastor: Rev. Jeremiah Wright Friday, March 02, 2007
    .
    .
    .
    HANNITY: OK, this is the same church. You do have the Web site, right, where it says commitment to the black community, commitment to the black...

    WRIGHT: The black value system, which was developed by the congregation, by laypersons of the congregation, 26 years ago, very similar to the gospel (INAUDIBLE) developed by laypersons in Nicaragua during the whole liberation theology movement, 26, 28, 30 years ago, yes.

    HANNITY: All right, but we're not dealing with — this is on the Web site today. Let me just inform our audience, and I want you to respond, if you can.

    It says, "Commitment to God." By the way, I'm with you, and I hope you'll pray for me, Reverend. Commitment to the black community, commitment to the black family, adherence to the black work ethic. It goes on, pledge, you know, acquired skills available to the black community, strengthening and supporting black institutions, pledging allegiance to all black leadership who have embraced the black value system, personal commitment to the embracement of the black value system.

    Now, Reverend, if every time we said black, if there was a church and those words were white, wouldn't we call that church racist?

    WRIGHT: No, we would call it Christianity. We've been saying that since there was a white Christianity; we've been saying that ever since white Christians took part in the slave trade; we've been saying that ever since they had churches in slave castles.

    We don't have to say the word "white." We just have to live in white America, the United States of white America. That's not the issue; you're missing the issue.

    As I was trying to say to you, liberation theology — and I thought Eric Rush has studied at a theological seminary that was conservative — I've come to find out he doesn't know anything more about theology than I know about brain surgery.

    HANNITY: So here's my point to you, though.

    WRIGHT: No, let me finish. No, here's my point to you.

    HANNITY: I'm waiting.

    WRIGHT: If you're not going to talk about theology in context, if you're not going to talk about liberation theology that came out of the ‘60s, (INAUDIBLE) black liberation theology, that started with Jim Cone in 1968, and the writings of Cone, and the writings of Dwight Hopkins, and the writings of womanist theologians, and Asian theologians, and Hispanic theologians...

    HANNITY: Reverend, I've got to get this in.

    WRIGHT: Then you can talk about the black value system.

    (CROSSTALK)

    HANNITY: I'm going to tell you this. Listen...

    WRIGHT: Do you know liberation theology, sir? Do you know liberation theology?

    HANNITY: I studied theology; I went to a seminary. And I studied Latin.

    WRIGHT: Do you know black liberation theology?

    HANNITY: I'm very aware of what you're calling black liberation, but let me get my question out.

    (CROSSTALK)

    WRIGHT: I said, do you know black theology?

    HANNITY: Reverend, I'm going to give you a chance to answer my question.

    WRIGHT: How many of Cone's books have you read? How many of Cone's book have you read?

    HANNITY: Reverend, Reverend?

    (CROSSTALK)

    WRIGHT: How many books of Cone's have you read?

    HANNITY: I'm going to ask you this question...

    WRIGHT: How many books of Dwight Hopkins have you read?

    HANNITY: You're very angry and defensive. I'm just trying to ask a question here.

    (CROSSTALK)

    WRIGHT: You haven't answered — you haven't answered my question.

    HANNITY: And it seems to be, when you say the black community, black family, black work ethic, black community...

    (CROSSTALK)

    WRIGHT: It seems arrogant, ignorant...

    (CROSSTALK)

    WRIGHT: I'm asking you...

    (CROSSTALK)

    WRIGHT: ... how many books of Dwight Hopkins have you read?

    HANNITY: Sir, I'm going to say this whether you like it or not. I'm going to get my words in, and I'm going to tell you right now... HANNITY: As a Christian, sir, I think, as a Christian, you should not separate by race in this day and age. And that's why a lot of people are going to look at that and say, "We're all supposed to be united under Christ, aren't we?"

    ALAN COLMES, CO-HOST: Dr. Wright, it's Alan Colmes. First of all, I think Barack Obama put it correctly to the "Chicago Tribune" when he said that he'd be puzzled that the conservatives would object or quibble with the bulk of a document — which is your church's document — that espouses profoundly conservative values of self-reliance and self-help. That's what you're talking about on your Web site, self-reliance and self-help for the committee that your church serves. I don't see what the problem should be with that.

    WRIGHT: That comes out of the perspective of liberation theology and black liberation theology. And I keep asking him, how many books of Cone's has he read? How many books of Dwight Hopkins? How many liberation theologians does he know? .
    .
    .

    Get this people - for 20 YEARS Obama was an active member and close associate of this "Black Theology" Church founded on the ideas of James Cone - founded on THESE ideas:
