This was the day I and my daughter spent 9 hours on  Capital Hill to speak with Democrat Congressmen about the Affordable Health Act which was to be voted on later that week.  Not ONE Congressman would speak to ANY visitor in spite of knowing that we were coming.  My own Congressman Bart Stupak ran out the side door when I said that I was one of his constituents.  He was the last one to vote YES, because Obama promised him that the Act would not provide abortions.  How did that work out?

“Let me tell your something. I'm from Chicago. I don't break.”  Barack Obama
"If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun"  Barack Obama

“There is not a liberal America and a conservative America - there is the United States of America. There is not a black America and a white America and Latino America and Asian America - there's the United States of America.”  Barack Obama [He wouldn't appreciate hearing your laughter.]

Weeks before the presidential election, President Barack Obama’s administration faces mounting opposition from within the ranks of U.S. intelligence agencies over what career officers say is a “cover up” of intelligence information about terrorism in North Africa.
Intelligence held back from senior officials and the public includes numerous classified reports revealing clear Iranian support for jihadists throughout the tumultuous North Africa and Middle East region, as well as notably widespread al Qaeda penetration into Egypt and Libya in the months before the deadly Sept. 11 terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi. http://freebeacon.com/revolt-of-the-spooks/

A new poll shows Mitt Romney flipping a 5-point deficit in Colorado before the first presidential debate, which was held on Wednesday in Denver, to a 3.5-point advantage later in the week — another signal that Mr. Romney's comparatively strong debate performance has started to translate into rising poll numbers for the Republican.

The New York Times reports that the Obama administration has abandoned its limited goal of a negotiated settlement with the Taliban, leaving the Afghans to do it in the years after we leave. Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi rebuffed President Obama's call for free speech in the aftermath of the Arab Spring, calling in his United Nations speech for repression of any speech that offends Islam.
President Obama intervened militarily in Libya after his then-defense secretary, Bob Gates, said America had no national security stake in that nation. The result, in the words of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, is that "[n]ow with a larger safe haven and increased freedom to maneuver, terrorists are seeking to extend their reach and their networks in multiple directions." http://washingtonexaminer.com/abdication-of-a-superpower/article/2509973#.UHFyilEpWnF

From the Tampa Tribune: Kudos to the Spanish-language television news network Univision for their incredible investigative report on Fast and Furious. Much of what they revealed has been asserted by one of our own congressional committees and after an internal inspector general's report, it leaves little doubt as to the complicity of this administration in the slaughter of hundreds of Mexicans.
Where is the American media that have failed in their responsibility to be the watch dog of irresponsible and illegal government activities? They are missing in action and thereby have failed in their responsibility not only to the people of America but also to the Republic that entrusted them with watching over it. http://www2.hernandotoday.com/news/hernando-news/2012/oct/07/haopino1-i-am-furious-over-this-ar-524199/

There will be lots more to write on this topic, but here's a snippet at this link: After Congress passed the RESTORE Act to direct any monies from a federal lawsuit against BP (related to the oil rig blowout) to the affected Gulf States according to a formula set in the act, the Obama administration, as is its wont, is trying to make an end run against a law the president himself signed, by reaching a legal settlement with BP that directs the money elsewhere so the feds have control of it.
This is an outrage. My own local congressman, Jo Bonner of Mobile, AL, who is a bulldog when riled up in a righteous cause, is leading an effort to stop the administration's lawless money grab. More on the issue at this link. And more to come soon. But when I saw the Huff Post feature this story prominently, (the link in the first graph), I thought it was time to at least highlight it now while planning to do more with it later. http://spectator.org/blog/2012/10/06/stop-obama-from-cheating-gulf

Wear radio chip or leave, school tells students

Superintendent issues warning: 'There will be consequences' for not submitting 

Brushing aside privacy concerns by parents and civil rights activists, a Texas school district has gone live with a controversial program requiring all students to wear a locator radio chip that will enable officials to track their every move – or face expulsion. http://www.wnd.com/2012/10/wear-radio-chip-or-leave-school-tells-students/

 On Thursday, AARP issued this statement: "AARP has never consented to the use of its name by any candidate or political campaign. AARP is a nonpartisan organization and we do not endorse political candidates nor coordinate with any candidate or political party." The hypocrisy of this statement is breathtaking. AARP actively supported Obama and congressional Democrats on Obamacare knowing full well that it would cut Medicare Advantage (MA), an enormously popular program among seniors, by $200 billion. This obvious betrayal of its members was driven by the knowledge that these MA cuts would force millions of seniors back to traditional Medicare and create a captive market for AARP's "Medigap" policies.

AARP derives only about 20% its annual revenue from membership dues. Meanwhile, the organization earns more than $1 billion per year by endorsing various products, including "Medigap" insurance policies that pay medical charges not covered by traditional Medicare. http://spectator.org/archives/2012/10/08/aarp-stands-by-as-obama-gets-m

Obama’s crooked campaign cash-o-matic machine revisited

By Michelle Malkin  
In advance of the new Obama donor scandal story that many conservatives have been buzzing about and which is purportedly set to hit the pages of Newsweek/Daily Beast tomorrow morning, I’m reprinting a selection of my previous blog posts over the last four years that exposed various aspects of the Obama crooked campaign cash-o-matic machine.
But there’s nothing routine about the nearly $3 million Obama has spent on legal expenses  [in 2008] to address federal campaign finance irregularities and inquiries. Roll Call reports that Obama’s campaign legal fees have exceeded all other House and presidential campaign committees, including members of Congress under ethics investigations.Among the Obama 2008 campaign committee’s shadiest transactions that have gone unpunished:
Foreign funny money. Federal election law bans foreign nationals from contributing to American candidates. But during 2008, the Obama campaign was forced to return an illegal foreign donation worth $31,100 made by two brothers in the Gaza Strip, and even mainstream news outlets reported that candidate Obama’s money-handlers had routinely failed to verify citizenship by checking donors’ passports. As the Associated Press reported at the time: “One donor, Tom Sanderson of Canada, made clear his $500 contribution came from a foreign source. He included a note that said, ‘I am not an American citizen!’ Obama’s campaign took the money anyway…”
Another illegal foreign donor, Australian Richard Watters, contributed $1,000, “entering a fake U.S. passport number — a random jumble of numbers and letters” onto the Obama donation website. “He said he also checked a box stating that he was an American living overseas, ‘because I could see it wasn’t going anywhere if I didn’t do that.’” http://michellemalkin.com/2012/10/07/obamas-crooked-campaign-cash-o-matic-machine-revisited/

Mitt Romney on Monday will accuse the Obama administration of fundamentally misunderstanding the threat of radical Islam, using a major foreign-policy speech at the Virginia Military Institute to say President Obama is rejecting six decades of bipartisan consensus by not flexing more U.S. muscle on the world stage.

According to excerpts, he will say the president’s first reaction was to blame an Internet video mocking Islam, and only belatedly to spot “the deliberate work of terrorists who use violence to impose their dark ideology on others.”
