Islam Day of Prayer/ Infiltration?

President Barack Hussein Obama has stated he wants to transform America. I ask, “Into what?”

Obama stated, “We do not consider ourselves a Christian Nation,” that we are a Muslim nation. He is sympathetic to Islam and has contradicted himself as to whether he was taught about the Islamic religion. He made a public announcement celebrating the Muslim holy month of Ramadan but made no such announcement for Easter.

Obama refused to have a public ceremony at the Whitehouse regarding the National Christian Day of Prayer. He refused to allow the Air Force to do a flyover over the God and Country Family Festival in Nampa, Idaho because of the festivals religious focus. The Air Force cited the Pentagon’s policy against doing the flyover because it prohibits supporting of special interest groups. The Air Force has been doing a flyover of the event for over forty years and they do flyovers for sporting events.

An adviser / Czar to the President, Harold Koh thinks the United States should follow international laws and believes Sharia law could be implemented in this country. Little by little America is being transformed; Muslim cabdrivers are refusing to pick up passengers with dogs or alcohol, Muslim cashiers are refusing to check out people with bacon and in the Courts, Muslims are being allowed to wear their headgear. The prison system makes accommodations for Muslims in the prisons. There is a Muslim woman who is suing Abercrombie and Fitch for not hiring her because she wears a hijab, a headscarf, which violates their Look Policy. The EEOC and the ACLU are in support of the woman.

At the Capital on September 25, 2009 President Obama allowed an Islamic day of prayer, which was called a Day of Islamic Unity. Hassen Abdellah was one of the organizers of the event and he stated this was not a protest but a gathering for prayer.

Abdellah was one of the lawyers who represented the terrorists involved in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. He was inspired to put on the event after he heard Obama speak on Inauguration Day and the speech Obama gave in Cairo, Egypt. He has on the website and states, “Our time has come.” Your time has come for what?
Another organizer, Sheikh Ahmed Dewilder has said through the domination of Islam and it’s ideas the Whitehouse will change. The Whitehouse will become the Muslim House.

Abdul Malik, an additional organizer of the event has written on his Facebook page the following: Democracy is not revelation, and democracy does not equal freedom, for in democracy you have apartheid, you have slavery, homosexuality, you have lesbianism, you have gambling, you have all of the voices that are against the spirit of truth; so no we do not want to democratize Islam, we want to Islamize democracy. That is what we want.

Mr. President, I disagree when you said the United States is not a Christian nation. The United States is a nation founded on Judeo-Christian principles and we tolerate other religions like Islam, but we do not want to become a Muslim nation and put under Sharia law.

The American people must remember, the radical Muslims believe Americans are infidels; and the infidels will have to convert to Islam, or be enslaved or killed. So, beware of the “Trojan Horse,” Osama bin Laden and the Muslim Brotherhood called for a “Civilization-Jihadist Process,” in which they would destroy the Western civilization from within. Are Muslims infiltrating America to destroy it from within? When they were praying were they praying for this country’s destruction?

President Obama said, “The United States is not and will never be at war with Islam.” Unfortunately, Islam is at war with America. President of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has made statements about the destruction of Israel and the United States, “The Great Satan.” He has ramped up their nuclear arms program and has been test firing short-range and long-range missiles.

Obama believes in nuclear disarmament and travels the world apologizing for the United States; he is an appeaser and shows weakness to our enemies in the world. He has scrapped the missile defense shields in Poland and the Czech Republic stating Iran is not a threat. He stated Israel must end its occupation of Palestine and stop expanding settlements.

Russia recently extended a 2.2 billion dollar line of credit to Venezuela to purchase military equipment, missiles and to help with their nuclear program. Russia also deals with Iran and Cuba. This past year Russia did naval war maneuvers with nuclear-armed warships off the coasts of Venezuela and Cuba. Why?

President Obama, who are your allies, Iran, Cuba, Venezuela, Russia or Israel, Poland or the Czech Republic?

America is the superpower of the world, and we should not disarm. The reason to have the bomb is so you do not have to use it. Peace through Strength!

Obama’s rhetoric and actions are endangering our allies and emboldening our enemies.
Mr. President, you are the Commander in Chief of this great country, the United States of America and the prime responsibility of the federal government is to protect its citizens from enemies both foreign and domestic.

ACORN and the Responsibility of the Press

Justin Pritchard an Associated Press writer did a story on, "How the ACORN pimp and hooker videos came to be." In the article about O’Keefe and Giles he writes, “each has other credentials that place them squarely in the network of activists who believe liberal-leaning mainstream media willfully ignore stories that illustrate the failings of the political left and its leanings.”

The sense I get from your article is that you are on a witch-hunt for conservative organizations, which shows your bias. Hey Justin, how many stories have you done on the ACORN organization? Have you interviewed the “ACORN eight”? They worked for ACORN and were thrown out of the organization because they brought up the corruption? Have you interviewed Gregory Hall an ex ACORN employee who says he has evidence about the corruption in ACORN dealing with voter fraud and abuse of their employees? Hall believes the authorities and the press are reluctant to investigate ACORN because they have friends in high places, referring to President Obama. Have you interviewed any of the prosecutors in the states that are investigating and prosecuting ACORN for voter registration and voter fraud?

An example of mainstream media not covering ACORN is when Charlie Gibson was asked about them and stated, “ I didn’t even know about it.” You make the argument for them when you state they believe liberal-leaning mainstream media ignore these stories. So, where are the stories? Where are the stories?

The story is ACORN. It is a corrupt organization that received millions of taxpayers’ dollars and should be put out of business. These employees of ACORN had no problem giving advice on setting up a brothel using underage girls 13 to 15 years old, smuggled in the country from El Salvador. Justin, do you not have a problem with underage sex slave trade?

These two patriots who exposed the corrupt organization ACORN to the world are now being sued by ACORN, because of a Maryland Law regarding the taping of conversations.

Congress has recently voted to defund ACORN, the organization has been removed from participating in the Census, the IRS has stripped them of their ability to give out tax advice and there are calls for an independent audit as well as being investigated by the various states for voter fraud. The organization needs to be investigated by the Justice Department and the IRS.

The media/press is supposed to give the facts of the story and be unbiased in their reporting of it; unfortunately, the so-called liberal-leaning mainstream media have not been doing that, especially dealing with the Obama administration. The freedom of the press is guaranteed by the first amendment of the Constitution and with that responsibility the press is supposed to be the watchdogs over the government.

Wilson, Racism and the Confederate Flag

Representative Joe Wilson of South Carolina shouted, “you lie” to President Barack Hussein Obama while the President was giving a speech to Congress. Even though Obama was lying, Wilson apologized for his outburst and the President accepted his apology. Some people are claiming that people who are opposed to Obama’s policies are racists because he is black. It’s the same old argument they want to use to stifle discussion and free speech on the issues.

Wilson is being called a racist because he supports the displaying of the Confederate flag at the South Carolina Capital. He stated South Carolina made great contributions to the civil war and hence as a tribute the flag should be kept flying over the capital. Wilson also fought to keep the Confederate Battle Flag over the memorial to a fallen Confederate soldier.

The Confederate flag has been called the Confederate Battle Flag, the Rebel flag, Southern Cross or Dixie. It is a source of pride to Southerners and was carried into battle during other wars by troops from the South.

Like it or not the Confederate flag is a part of history. Opponents of the flag like the NAACP do not want it displayed because it might hurt someone’s feelings. They say that the flag is a symbol of racism because of slavery in the United States and the establishment of the Jim Crow laws in the Southern states.

Supporters of the Confederate flag like the Sons and Daughters of Confederate Soldiers who view it as a battle flag and symbol of pride of their Southern heritage and freedom from the oppression of the Northern government.

Several politicians have called for banning the Confederate flag and that it should not be flown in this country. Some examples regarding banning the Confederate flag are: In 2003 Representative Dick Gephardt stated, “the flag is a hurtful, divisive symbol and in my view has no place flying anywhere, in any state of this country.” At the urging of Rep. Gephardt and Democrat Governor Bob Holden the Confederate battle flags were removed from the Confederate Memorial Historic Site and the Fort Davidson historic Site, which are Confederate cemeteries. Mayor Francis Slay of St. Louis had the Southern flags with the confederate flag incorporated in them removed from the rotunda of City Hall.

What about the feelings of those that support the flag because of their heritage and want to display it? Isn’t that discriminatory when the views of supporters of the flag are not taken into account?

The American flag, the Stars and Bars, still flies and has flown over the country during the time of slavery and the Jim Crow laws. Therefore, using the same logic, shouldn’t the American flag be removed and banned from flying at the various buildings and cemeteries in the United States? The answer, “Of course not.” The flag is a symbol that means something different to different people. People should not get offended so easily.

Speaking of flags I believe the Obama administration is going to allow the Communist Chinese Flag to be flown over the White House. What’s wrong with that picture? Where are our priorities? What is this administration thinking?

Obama and Jeffrey Immelt, Conflict of Interest?

President Barack Hussein Obama has as one of his advisors Jeffrey Immelt the CEO of General Electric.Immelt was recently named to the board of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.

General Electric is a conglomerate and is the parent company of NBC, MSNBC and CNBC.GE has a finance arm through GE Capital; the company also makes light bulbs, windmills, turbines, locomotives etc. along with medical equipment. His company benefited through the bank bailout, yet GE capital canceled consumers credit cards, and reduced the credit limits on other consumers’ cards even though the cardholders were not behind on their payments.

Jeff Immelt and General Electric stand to make a lot of money with the initiatives Obama wants to get passed such as, the Cap and Trade and Healthcare legislation.

Jeff Immelt and GE have set up satellite offices in Europe in order to trade with Iran. There are rumors that GE technology is being used in IED’s (roadside bombs), which are killing American soldiers. Eric Holder, the US Attorney General, would be responsible for the investigation of GE and the roadside bombs. Holder is calling for an investigation of the CIA regarding the interrogation of terrorism suspects after 9/11, which has already been investigated. Holder stated as Attorney General he has the obligation to follow the law. So, will he call for an investigation of GE?

The so-called mainstream media like NBC, shows their media bias towards the left. The news media is supposed to be objective and be the watchdogs over government. Therefore, what kind of objective reporting do you think NBC has done and will do on the Obama administration? Is this a conflict of interest?

Obama and National Defense

Nuclear Disarmament

Iran and Israel

Venezuela and Russia

Obama and National Defense

Americans need to be concerned about the direction this country is headed for reasons of safety and our standing in the world with our allies.

On the 70th anniversary of the invasion of Poland by the Soviet Union, President Barack Hussein Obama announced the discontinuation of the missile defense system that was to be built in the Czech Republic and Poland. Is he that clueless? Obama phoned Czech Prime Minister Jan Fischer and Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk alerting them of his decision to abandon them.

Obama stated his decision was based on the United States’ conclusion that Iran is less focused on developing the kind of long-range missiles for which the system was originally developed, making the building of the shield unnecessary. So, Iran will not be using long-range missiles for now, but why not be prepared in case they do? He was also concerned with the provocation it may cause with Russia by building it.

Obama believes in nuclear disarmament, he travels the world apologizing for the United States; he is an appeaser and shows weakness to our enemies in the world. Obama’s administration is also investigating the CIA interrogators for actions taken by them after the 9/11 attacks. The actions taken by Obama are dangerous to safety of this country. After all, the prime responsibility of the federal government is to protect its citizens from enemies both foreign and domestic.

Obama has stated strong presidents talk to their adversaries. Iran, Cuba and Venezuela, these countries are tiny compared to the Soviet Union and they don’t pose a serious threat. Though in another speech he says Iran poses a grave threat. So, which is it, not a serious threat or a grave threat?

On September 9th, 2009 at a meeting of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in Vienna Glyn Davies, a US. Envoy stated Iran is moving closer to being able to make a nuclear bomb. The AP reported senior officials at the IAEA stated Tehran has the ability to make a nuclear bomb and worked on a missile system that can carry a warhead. They did not want to make the information public.

Russia recently extended a 2.2 billion dollar line of credit to Venezuela to purchase military equipment and nuclear weapons. This past year Russia did naval war maneuvers with nuclear-armed warships off the coasts of Venezuela and Cuba. Why? Russia also deals with Iran and Cuba.

Obama sides with the Palestinians over Israel, and is demanding Israel to stop building in the settlements. Yet, Mahmoud Akmedinajan, the leader of Iran, seeks the destruction of Israel. President Obama, who are your allies, Iran, Cuba, Venezuela, Russia or Israel, Poland or the Czech Republic?

We are living in dangerous times and this administration should be concerned with what these countries (Russia, Iran, Cuba and Venezuela) are doing. I believe the Obama administration is undermining the efforts of the CIA by the rules they have imposed on them and by the investigation of them for the interrogations that were conducted after 9/11.

Are we headed for WW3? America is the superpower of the world, and we should not disarm. The reason to have the bomb is so you do not have to use it. Peace through Strength!

Maxine Waters/ Reprensenting Who?

Maxine, the people protesting Obama's policies have been saying what they want and what they stand for. You are not listening!

When questioning the oil executives Maxine shows her true beliefs; that she's a socialist.

Regarding the Los Angelos riots of 1992 she stated on Nightline, "What you are seeing is justified anger." She also stated "riot is the voice of the unheard." Why is she a representative of the United States.

Obama Socialist?

Barack Hussein Obama stated, “The Supreme Court never ventured into the redistribution of wealth and sort of basic and political economic justice in our society. But, I am not optimistic about bringing about redistributive change through the courts. The institution isn’t structured that way.” He’s going to transform America. Sound like Socialism to me.

ACORN and Obama

President Obama, the Community Organizer in Chief, gave a speech to ACORN and he stated, “Before I even get inaugurated, during the transition, we’re going to be calling you in to help shape the agenda. We’re going to be having meetings all across the country with community organizations so that you will have input into the agenda for the next Presidency of the United States of America.”

ACORN is a corrupt organization that receives millions of taxpayer’s dollars and is currently under investigation in many states regarding voter registration fraud. James Okeefe and Hannah Giles posed as a pimp and a prostitute and did an undercover investigation of ACORN. They went to several ACORN offices throughout the country and videotaped ACORN representatives and received the same type of information on how to cheat the system. Apparently, this type of culture is systemic throughout the organization because they received the same type of advice from representative of the different offices.

What I found troubling was when the “pimp” told the representatives that he wanted to bring in underage girls from El Salvador for prostitution; they had no problem with that and gave him advice on how to conceal them. (Sex Slaves) Another problem I have is the lack of coverage about ACORN by the so-called mainstream media.

James Okeefe and Hannah Giles are patriots for bringing this corrupt organization to light. They did what the Justice Department and the IRS should have been doing all along. However, the Office of the States Attorney for Baltimore City sent out a press release revealing they would not be investigating ACORN, but may prosecute Okeefe and Giles for violating Maryland Law regarding the tape. Talk about shooting the messenger. The American people need to stand strong behind these two patriots.

Maryland ACORN update
September 15, 2009 - 12:47 ET

Baltimore, MD – September 11, 2009 – We have received inquiries from citizens and the media asking whether the Baltimore City State’s Attorneys Office would initiate a criminal investigation for acts allegedly committed at ACORN offices located in Baltimore. The only information received in reference to this alleged criminal behavior was a YouTube video. Upon review by this office, the video appears to be incomplete. In addition, the audio portion could possibly have been obtained in violation of Maryland Law, Annotated Code of Maryland Courts and Judicial Proceedings Article §10-402, which requires two party consent.

If it is determined that the audio portion now being heard on YouTube was illegally obtained, it is also illegal under Maryland Law to willfully use or willfully disclose the content of said audio. The penalty for the unlawful interception, disclosure or use of it is a felony punishable up to 5 years.

Killing the messenger.

When the tapes were first released, Bertha Lewis, the CEO of ACORN, said it was a scam and claims the tapes were doctored and they would be filing a lawsuit against Okeefe and Giles, as well as Fox. The racist right wing Republican Party have been out to get her organization and she related it to “Modern–day McCarthyism.” If it was a scam, why did she terminate the employees?

When there was talk of the government stripping the organization of funding she stated that didn’t matter, the organization receives money through donations. She then revised her position and stated she would appoint an independent auditor to “review all of the systems and processes.” I guess those millions do add up.

In an interview with Fox and Friends, Gregory Hall a former ACORN employee stated ACORN had good intentions when they started but now is a corrupt organization. He states it’s all about the money and he has evidence showing the corruption of ACORN and it comes from the top down. He believes they have not been scrutinized as well as they should because they have friends in high places, (Obama). Mr. Hall, watch your back!

ACORN receives millions of dollars of taxpayer’s money and was supposed to receive millions more through the stimulus bill. The organization was to also work on the census even though they are under investigation in numerous states for voter registration fraud.

This corrupt organization needs to be investigated by the Attorney General’s Office as well as the IRS. ACORN currently is being investigated by numerous states for voter registration fraud. The company should be stripped of all funding and there should be an audit to find out how the money was spent. Congress is in the process of doing just that, but the American people need to be vigilant and make sure the politicians follow through on it. Also the government needs to make sure the people running the organization do not just change the name and start all over again.

Kanye West/Taylor Swift and Liberal Hypocrisy

Kanye West is classless when he interupts Taylor Swift.

Kanye West the racist

Liberal hypocricy at it's best, the women of the View do not condemn West's
action, and Obama called him a "jackass", but did not want it on the record.

Kanye West rudely interrupted Taylor Swift at the VMA awards. He showed what a classless, racist he is.

On the other hand Taylor and Beyonce showed a lot of class on how they handled the situation.

What bothered me though was the Liberal hypocrisy from the women of the view and from President Obama.Sure Obama called him a “jackass”, but he did not want it on the record. None of the women on the View condemned Kanye West’s actions. Could it be because West is black?

September 11th/Community Service?

President Barack Hussein Obama, the Community Organizer in Chief, has declared September 11th, as a national day of service and remembrance. This country stands for freedom, but on that day, terrorists attacked the United States because they do not like this country and they wanted to destroy our way of life. Therefore, this should be a day of remembrance to those people who died that day, along with the heroes that died trying to save others.

The United States needs to remember to stay vigilant in order to keep this country safe by supporting law enforcement’s efforts to keep something like this from happening again. The primary role of the federal government is to protect its citizenry from enemies both foreign and domestic. I think name-calling of the CIA “liars” and threats of an investigation for political reasons undermines our law enforcement’s efforts in protecting this country.

Anytime there is a crisis in the world such as a tsunami, earthquake or other disaster, the world looks to the United States for help. The American people do not need to be told to do acts of community service; they do it on their own. When there is a crisis the American people respond and come to the aid of their fellow man as they did on 9/11.

Another example is the Missouri flood of 1993; people came together without being told by the government. They volunteered their time to assist their neighbors in sandbagging to protect their property. Unfortunately, there are some politicians that like to take advantage of the situation and use it as a photo-op. One such individual was Rep. Dick Gephardt, who showed up for a photo-op at a flood sight acting like he was helping out. After a few minutes he had his picture taken with some sand bags and left. Similarly, on this first day of national service Barack and Michelle Obama showed up to volunteer to paint at a habitat for humanity site. How many walls do you think they painted?

On September 19th, 2001 in the Hyde Park Herald newspaper, then State Senator Barack Obama had published the following statement regarding the attacks:

“Even as I hope for some measure of peace and comfort to the bereaved families, I must also hope that we as a nation draw some measure of wisdom from this tragedy. Certain immediate lessons are clear, and we must act upon those lessons decisively. We need to step up security at our airports. We must reexamine the effectiveness of our intelligence networks. And we must be resolute in identifying the perpetrators of these heinous acts and dismantling their organizations of destruction.

We must also engage, however, in the more difficult task of understanding the sources of such madness. The essence of this tragedy, it seems to me, derives from a fundamental empathy on the part of the attackers; an inability to imagine, or connect with, the humanity and suffering of others. Such a failure of empathy, such numbness to the pain of a child or the desperation of a parent, is not innate; nor, history tells us; it is unique to a particular culture, religion, or ethnicity. It may find expression in a particular brand of violence, and may be channeled by particular demagogues or fanatics. Most often, though, it grows out of a climate of poverty and ignorance, helplessness and despair.

We will have to make sure, despite our rage, that any U.S. military action takes into account the lives of innocent civilians abroad. We will have to be unwavering in opposing bigotry or discrimination directed against neighbors and friends of Middle Eastern descent. Finally, we will have to devote far more attention to the monumental task of raising hopes and prospects of embittered children across the globe, children not just in the Middle East, but also in Africa, Asia, Latin America, Eastern Europe and within our own shores.”

Now that you know of his beliefs, it is not hard to understand the reason he bows before Kings and travels the world apologizing for what a rotten country the United States is. According to him, we are racists, who go around murdering innocent civilians with our military (see Murtha on the Haditha marines) and we do not do enough to help the poor around the world.

Obama stated we must have empathy for the attackers and try to understand how they could do such a thing. Could Obama have been influenced with that kind of thinking because of his association with Bill Ayers, an unrepentant terrorist? As I stated these terrorists do not like our way of life, our freedom and that is why they intend to destroy it.

In reality, we are not a country of racists. Our military goes out of its way to limit civilian casualties, sometimes to their detriment, because of the rules of engagement. This country also gives billions of dollars to countries around the world.

Most Americans are very charitable people and donate their time and money helping people around the world. Don’t forget, one of Obama’s stated goals is to end global poverty at U.S. taxpayer’s expense.

An example of forced community service is when Kathleen Sebelius, the secretary of Health and Human Services, sent out an email to her staff instructing them to send out emails to ten people on how to prevent getting the swine flu and have those ten forward it to ten other people

When you are forced to volunteer is it volunteering or slavery?

David Shuster and Racism

Is David Shuster supposed to be a news reporter, anchor or what? He was one who made disparaging remarks about the people protesting the policies of Obama calling them tea-baggers, making sexual innuendos about them.

Hey, Shuster if you want to be considered a newsman then I suggest you get your facts straight and actually start doing some journalism like investigating ACORN, or the radical czars in the Obama administration.

Now, apparently if you oppose Obama’s radical policies you are a racist. It’s the same old argument they want to use to stifle discussion and speech on the issues. Therefore, using Shuster’s logic, if you are a white male and oppose Obama’s policy just come out and admit that you are a racist and then get on with the real reason you are opposed to his policies.

Let me suggest to Shuster that he read the Constitution, especially the first amendment where it talks about freedom of speech, freedom of the press, and the right of the people to petition the Government for a redress of their grievances. The press is supposed to be the watchdogs over government; unfortunately the mainstream media are not living up to their responsibilities with regards to the Obama administration.

Greg Zotta

Obama Schoolchildren Speech/ Indoctrination?

Pat Martin, you wrote an editorial in the Leader newspaper that the schools’ decision to block the White House was gutless and scary regarding President Obama’s speech to the school children. In it you wrote the Republicans are doing their level best to catch up and exceed the nastiest and lowest that the donkeys could conjure up. They are using schoolchildren as cannon fodder.

What makes you think they are only Republicans; Obama’s poll numbers are declining with Democrats and Independents alike. Obama uses children and plants at town hall meetings, such as the young girl who asked the President the question about the nasty signs opposing Obamacare. Her mother was a strong supporter and contributor to Obama.

You continued stating it is not about the message; it’s about hating the messenger. How could our schools let themselves be manipulated and terrorized so easily by the haters? Then these followers were urged by their commanders to flood the superintendents’ phones demanding that their kids not be subjected to this socialist propaganda, even though they hadn’t seen a transcript of the speech yet.

Are you calling the people who oppose Obamas’ policies terrorists? You did not know what the original transcript said either. But there was a lesson plan given out where schoolchildren were to write what they could do to serve this president. Maybe it was the lesson plans that concerned so many parents and not necessarily the speech. Even the Department of Education afterwards said it was a mistake to have the lesson plans.

I believe Barack Hussein Obama is a socialist, and he stated he was going to transform America. Look at all the radical “Czars” he has surrounded himself with, and they are a reflection of him. (Check out Czar’s article). The media’s responsibility under the first amendment of the Constitution is to be the watchdogs over the government. So why is the mainstream media not doing their job and exposing these people for what they are?

Obama also wants a civilian national security force and stated, “We cannot continue to rely on just the military to achieve the national security objectives we set. We have to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded.” Maybe these parents are a little leery when it comes to this President, because of his statements and his radical associates.

Were you implying that these people are racists when you wrote what’s next, culling library books because they don’t like the race or ancestry of the author? Maybe these people are just getting tired of being called tea-baggers, racists, terrorists, Astroturf, mobsters, and Nazi’s, because they oppose the direction this country is headed.

You also wrote, parents should not set the curriculum, if they don’t like how the school district is doing those jobs; they have the power to elect new school board members who can hire a new superintendent. Ironically, in an article written by Kim Robertson on this subject for the Leader wrote Superintendent Bob Borman of Windsor, and Superintendent Dianne Brown of Fox, said district policy calls for any materials to be reviewed before they’re included as part of the curriculum and that’s why they decided not to show the speech. It looks like the Superintendents made the decision because of policy.

Apparently, you are a supporter of Barack Obama. That’s fine, but I suggest you listen to him more carefully, and check out these radical “czars” that are advising him.

Ted Kennedy, Sainthood?

Ted Kennedy was the Patriarch of the Democrat Party. Some Democrats called him the “Lion” of the Senate; unfortunately some of us were his prey. He was the champion of nationalized/socialized medicine. There were tributes to Ted Kennedy, detailing his life’s accomplishments. After all, his name was attached to several hundred pieces of legislation, but what did you expect from a big government socialist.

Just because there are laws on the books does not mean these elitists have to follow them. Look at the tax problems Tim Geithner, Tom Daschle, and Charlie Rangel had, to name a few. If the law affects them they can change it. Like the one Ted got passed in 2004 where the state of Massachusetts needs to have a special election to replace a US senator. Mitt Romney was a Republican Governor at the time, and Democrat Senator John Kerry was running for President. Now, there is a Democrat Governor and Ted wanted to have the law changed where the Democrat Governor could appoint his replacement.

Speaking of accomplishments, I wonder what Mary Jo Kopechne would have accomplished in her life if Ted had not left her in his car to die at Chappaquiddick. She may have found the cure for cancer, but we will never know because this selfish Senator from Massachusetts was so concerned about himself and his career that he left her in the car to die of asphyxiation.

If Ted Kennedy would have reported the accident immediately she may have lived. However, he never reported the incident and in fact the authorities found him the next day on the phone when they were organizing a search party for him.

Not to worry though, he was a member of the “Royal” Kennedy family and it did not hurt his career. He received a citation for leaving the scene of an accident and paid a fine, which was more in line with a parking ticket than vehicular manslaughter and that was the end of it.

Bill Maher states there are a lot of stupid people in America. For once, I have to agree with him, and I would put Maher at the top of the list because I believe he voted for Obama. Then there are the people in Massachusetts who elected and reelected a socialist, elitist, self-centered Senator named Ted Kennedy.

There was reference made about a letter Ted gave to President Obama to give to the Pope and the media was fawning all over it. In it he praises Obama, and why not, he endorsed and supported this radical “community organizer” who wants to transform (change) America. He also wrote he was dying and pats himself on the back for all of his accomplishments.

In the letter he states Obama is a man of deep faith like himself. Let’s see, Obama is for partial birth abortions, infanticide, and attended Rev. Wright’s radical church for twenty years. Oh, has he found a church in Washington D.C. yet?

Also, Obama’s advisor and friend William Ayers, an unrepentant terrorist, praised Sirhan Sirhan (Robert Kennedy’s assassin), in his book.

Ted asks for the Pope’s prayers as his health declines and states that he has been an imperfect human being. He then goes on to state that he has been the champion for the rights of the poor and opened doors of economic opportunity. He’s worked to welcome the immigrant, fight discrimination and expand access to health care and education. He opposed the death penalty and fought to end war. Though he is dying, he is committed to achieving his political cause of his life, which is health care for everyone in the county.

He was a proponent of the poor and is for open borders because he was a big government, socialist and wanted to keep people dependent on the government for votes. What’s more everyone already has access to health care in this country.

What the democrats are proposing is a takeover of the healthcare system in this country to control the populace. The government will have access to your tax returns, medical information, and your bank account. They will control your lives by telling you what you can do, and what you can eat, because it will be tied to healthcare. They will use the IRS to intimidate you into compliance.

The press made reference to the letter from Ted to the Pope, but did not mention another letter that Ted sent to the Soviet Union. In 1983 Senator Ted Kennedy sent a letter to the Comrade Y.V. Andropov, of the Soviet Union undermining what President Ronald Reagan was doing to protect the United States and its allies in Europe from the Soviet Union. I wonder why the press is reluctant to make reference to that letter from selfish Senator Ted. Maybe it’s because they are looking for “Sainthood” for him.

Hopefully, the proposed Government takeover of the healthcare system will die with him. Unfortunately, I believe now there will be a big push by the Democrats to get the legislation passed and put Ted Kennedy’s name on it.

Charles Rangel, Tax Cheat?

New York Democratic Rep. Charles Rangel is currently under a House Ethics investigation for under reporting his assets along with some tax violations. He is the Chairman of the tax writing Ways and Means Committee, but did not pay taxes on rental income and ended up writing checks to cover taxes due on his 2004, 2005, and 2006 returns. He did not pay penalties and interest on those payments, but said he would if the IRS imposes them.

In 2004 Rangel reported earning between $4000.00 and $10,000.00 in outside earnings on top of his $158,100.00 congressional salary. But in amended filings his outside income was between $118,000.00 and $1.04 million. He also underreported his income in years 2002, 2003, and 2004. In 2007 he disclosed that his net worth was between $516,015.00 and $1.316 million, yet he has now amended his 2007 financial form claiming his net worth is somewhere between $1.028 million and $2.495 million. Could this be considered tax evasion?

Why would he do such a thing? How could this happen? Again, he is the “Chairman” of the tax-writing committee. Could it be that there are income restrictions to live in a rent-stabilized apartment? He’s has 4. Could it be that he’s too busy writing tax law to get more money out of the citizenry? Could it be that he is forgetful? Could it be because he is an elitist and doesn’t think he has to pay taxes? Could it be this is his form of reparations?

Mr. Rangel has four rent-stabilized apartments, one of which he uses as a campaign office. However, state and city regulations require rent-stabilized apartments to be used as a primary residence. My questions to the state and city housing regulators are: “How can one of the apartments be used as a campaign office when it states in the regulations it must be used as a primary residence?” “How can all four apartments be considered a primary residence?”

Mr. Rangel stated that he made a series of mistakes that are unconscionable, but there was no intention to avoid or evade the law. Al Capone might have said the same thing.

Now, Mr. Rangel inputted into the health-care bill broad new provisions cracking down on taxpayers in proceedings with the IRS. In it the bill would do the following:

Punish those who fail to alert the IRS to potentially questionable tax exemptions.(more snitches)
Bar the IRS from waiving penalties against taxpayers who clearly erred in good faith.
Impose double fines in certain circumstances.

The bill raises penalties and eliminates many of the reasonable defenses that taxpayers have always been able to use when honest mistakes are uncovered. Can you say “hypocrite?” Would this be considered hypocritical?

Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner said the Obama administration would be going after people who avoid and evade taxes. They are expanding the size of the IRS, and they are imposing more stringent penalties for intimidation and control of the citizenry.

On November 8, 2006 in a late night speech in Washington, after the Democrats captured a majority in the House of Representatives in the midterm election, Nancy Pelosi stated, “The American people voted to restore integrity and honesty in Washington, D.C., and the Democrats intend to lead the most honest, most open and most ethical Congress in history.”

Speaker Pelosi, you said you were going to have the most ethical Congress in history; therefore you should remove Rep. Rangel as the Chairman of the Ways and Means Committee. Not necessarily because of the ethical violations he is charged with, but because he is incompetent and apparently is unfamiliar with the tax code when it comes to paying his taxes, so why should he be in charge of the tax-writing committee?

Rep. Rangel has given donations to three Democrats who sit on the House Ethics Committee who are investigating him. They are Congressmen Ben Chandler of Kentucky, G.K. Butterfield of North Carolina, and Peter Welch of Vermont. Speaker Pelosi, could this be unethical?

Therefore, the IRS should investigate, and audit Rep. Rangel’s taxes. If the investigation reveals he has evaded his taxes then he should be prosecuted.

Obama and the Czars

President Barack Hussein Obama said he wants to transform America. I ask, “Into what?” “Amerika!”

He has appointed a number of radical “Czars” as his advisors. “Green Jobs” czar, Van Jones stated he was “radicalized in jail,” and admits to being a “Communist”, and a “rowdy black nationalist.”

The “science czar,” John Holdren is for sterilization and abortion for population control, and wrote, “Indeed, it has been concluded that compulsory population-control laws, even including laws requiring compulsory abortion, could be sustained under the existing constitution if the population crisis became sufficiently severe to endanger the society.”

Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the “health policy” czar blames the Hippocratic oath for the overuse of medical care, and that doctors need to serve two masters “the patient and society.” He stated, “Medical students should be trained to provide socially sustainable, cost-effective care.” One sign of progress he sees: “the progression in the end-of-life care mentality from do everything to a more palliative care shows that change in physician norms and practices is possible.” “Treating 65 year olds differently because of stereotypes or falsehoods would be ageist: treating them differently because they have more life-years is not.” Could this be construed as the “Death Panel?”

Legal adviser Harold Koh stated, “Judges should interpret the Constitution according to other nations’ legal “norms.” Sharia law could apply to disputes in US courts. The United States constitutes an “axis of disobedience” along with North Korea and Saddam-era Iraq.”

“Diversity” czar, Mark Lloyd on the First Amendment stated, “It should be clear by now that my focus here is not freedom of speech or the press…This freedom is all too often an exaggeration…At the very least, blind references to freedom of speech or the press serve as a distraction from the critical examination of other communications policies.” He apparently will decide what is acceptable over the airwaves, and fine the stations 100% of the operating budget if he deems the content not “diverse” enough. Sounds like the “Fairness Doctrine” repackaged,and it’s meant to stifle conservative speech. They believe in free speech as long as you’re saying what they believe and want to hear.

Obama stated he was going to have the most transparent administration ever, and because these are just some of his “radical” advisers and some of their views I have the following questions for him:

What are they being paid?

How much influence do the czars have, and on who?

How much power do they have?

Who do they answer to?

How were they selected?

Who selected them?

Why were they selected?

President Obama now knows of their radical views,and thus will he keep them on as advisors? Probably, because these "Czars" are a reflection of whom Barack Hussein Obama really is.
