Part III

With reasonable expectations that there will be additions to this entire list, I give to you today a list of some the people with whom Obama has associated through his life:

Health care adviser: Ezekiel Emmanuel— brother of Rahm Emanuel and proponent of the Complete Lives System, which puts values on lives based mostly by age, Emanuel bluntly admits that the cuts [in health care] will not be pain-free. "Vague promises of savings from cutting waste, enhancing prevention and wellness, installing electronic medical records and improving quality are merely 'lipstick' cost control, more for show and public relations than for true change," he wrote last year (Health Affairs Feb. 27, 2008).

Savings, he writes, will require changing how doctors think about their patients: Doctors take the Hippocratic Oath too seriously, "as an imperative to do everything for the patient regardless of the cost or effects on others" (Journal of the American Medical Association, June 18, 2008). "A young person with a poor prognosis has had few life-years but lacks the potential to live a complete life. Considering prognosis forestalls the concern that disproportionately large amounts of resources will be directed to young people with poor prognosis."

Mark Lloyd, newly appointed Chief Diversity Officer of the Federal Communications Commission: In his 2006 book, "Prologue to a Farce: Communications and Democracy in America," Lloyd wrote: "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."

“Federal and regional broadcast operations and local stations should be funded at levels commensurate with or above those spending levels at which commercial operations are funded,” Lloyd wrote. “This funding should come from license fees charged to commercial broadcasters. Funding should not come from congressional appropriations. Sponsorship should be prohibited at all public broadcasters.” Along with this money, Lloyd would regulate much of the programming on these stations to make sure they focused on “diverse views” and government activities.

(In a completely unrelated fact, the FCC just approved the sale of another radio station — this one on Long Island — to ACORN.)

The Apollo Alliance, a special interest group, was launched, according to their website, "in the aftermath of the 9/11 tragedy to catalyze a clean energy revolution in America, a revolution in the way our country generates and uses energy so profound that it will touch literally every quarter of American life". This group was responsible for drafting the stimulus bill – the 86 billion dollars having to do with clean energy and green-collar jobs. Apollo New York is run by the Weather Underground founder, Jeff Jones. And who is Jeff Jones? Jeff Jones was a leading anti-war activist and terrorist group founder who spent time on the run from law enforcement agencies while his group carried out a series of bombings of U.S. government buildings.

Jeff Jones joined the Students

for a Democratic Society, or SDS, from which the Weathermen splintered in the fall of 1965. Two years later, he became the SDS's New York City regional director, a position in which he participated in nearly all of the group's major protests until 1969, including the 1968 Columbia University protests and the violent riots that same year at the Democratic National Convention. During his tenure he became a sworn enemy of the US and sided with the North Vietnamese Communists.

In 1969, Jeff Jones founded the Weathermen with terrorists Bill Ayers and Mark Rudd when the three signed an infamous statement of a Declaration of the State of War against the United States Government.

Jeff Jones was a main leader and orchestrator of what became known as the Days of Rage, a series of violent riots in Chicago organized by the Weathermen. The culmination of the riots came when he gave a signal for rowdy protestors to target a hotel that was the home of a local judge presiding over a trial of anti-war activists. He wrote the book Prairie Fire: The Politics of Revolutionary Anti-Imperialism,

Barack Obama's friends and mentors:

Childhood mentor in Hawaii: Frank Marshall Davis was a known communist who belonged to a party subservient to the Soviet Union. In fact, the 1951 report of the Commission on Subversive Activities to the Legislature of the Territory of Hawaii identified him as a CPUSA member. What's more, anti-communist congressional committees, including the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC), accused Davis of involvement in several communist-front organizations.

The Reverend Jeremiah Wright
: a long-time friend and pastor of Obama's who famously said in sermons: blacks should not sing "God Bless America" but "God damn America." He preached "Black Liberation Theology", about which most Americans had no knowledge prior to his newsmaking sermons which blamed America for 9/11, saying that our "chickens have come home to roost."
The overall emphasis of Black Liberation Theology is the black struggle for liberation from various forms of "white racism" and oppression. Perhaps Wright ought to admit that it was red-blooded conservative Americans who fought for the liberation of blacks from slavery many decades ago. The Klu Klux Klan, for instance, were made up of liberal Democrats.... And it was their own black kings from Africa who sold them into slavery. I believe it is past time to begin to make use of the education provided for all Americans as a way to excel in life, no matter the color of one's skin. Having visited Kenya and Tanzania, I believe it is time for the blacks in America to be thankful that their relatives suffered for them as slaves, for they are far better off here in America than they would be in Africa. Isn't it time to preach love and improvement instead of an old hatred of whites who were not yet born during all these tough times? I don't know about you, but I have never owned a slave. Barack referred to Wright as " like an old uncle who says things I don't always agree with. ..." Righto.

Bill Ayers
: unrepentant Weather Underground terrorist bomber William Ayers who, along with his wife Bernardine Dohrn, was a 1960s leader of the homegrown terrorist group Weatherman, a Communist group which advocated the following:

  • Kill all the rich people. ... Bring the revolution home. Kill your parents."
  • Participated in the bombings of New York City Police Headquarters in 1970, of the Capitol building in 1971, and the Pentagon in 1972
  • Currently a professor of education at the University of Illinois
  • "I don't regret setting bombs," Ayers is quoted as saying. "I feel we didn't do enough."

William Ayers is widely believed to be the one who actually wrote Barack Obama’s book Dreams From My Father, which would mean that the President is a plagerist.. Ayers was much more to Barack Obama than just ‘a man who lived in the neighborhood”.

Current in the news are some pretty strong arguments about the fact that Ayers was closer to Barack than he lets on, and probably actually wrote Obama's book Dreams From My Father, without being credited as being the ghost writer. This had the effect of presenting Obama as a brilliant writer and thinker. And this would make him the Plagerizer in Chief.

Saul Alinsky
: pioneered "community organizing". Though no longer living, Barack Obama studied him and his "Rules For Radicals", some of which rules follow:

1. Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have."

2. Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy." Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty

3. Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules." If the rule is that every letter gets a reply, send 30,000 letters

4. Ridicule is man's most potent weapon." There is no defense. It's irrational. It's infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions.

5. Keep the pressure on. Never let up." Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off balance. As the opposition masters one approach, hit them from the flank with something new

6. Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it."

ACORN: the community organizing group for whom Obama worked and taught, proudly claiming his efforts there as a resume builder. During his campaign for President, Barack pledged to ACORN that if elected, he would have meetings with ACORN even prior to his Inauguration, "to help shape his administration's policy." With the current investigations and trials in 14 states for voter fraud, and recent videos of ACORN giving advice to a prostitute and her pimp in how to defraud the government, this connection becomes even more important. Though Obama has pontificated on Kanye West, the NCAA Basketball Tournament, and other insignificant issues, he has yet to personally say one word about his former employer and favorite organizing group. His administration is filled with old cronies from Chicago and ACORN, and they are working hard to subvert our country.

Once again, should we not be known for the company we keep? When will we Americans hold Barack Hussein Obama accountable for the company he keeps?

Obama's Radicals - Part II

Now we go to President Obama's many Czars, or special advisers, as Obama calls them, not all of whom are radicals, who may or may not be allowed by our Constitution and who have no Congressional approval nor oversight. Their salaries are about $175,000 each, with staffs of up to 10 people.

Kevin Jennings has been appointed to be President Obama’s “Safe Schools” czar in the Department of Education. He is the founder of GLSEN (Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education Network) — which sponsored the conference that produced the notorious “Fistgate” scandal (in which young teens were guided on how to perform dangerous homosexual perversions including “fisting. He supports promoting homosexuality and gender confusion as normative to even young students. He made that comment in a New York City church.
On March 25, 2000, GLSEN put on a conference called "TeachOut" for kids across and public school teachers across Massachusetts. This conference was co-sponsored by the Massachusetts Department of Education. At this conference children as young as 12 years old were taught by state employees how to engage in various extremely dangerous (and disgusting) homosexual sex acts. Scott Whiteman, then an employee of Parents Rights Coalition attended the conference and tape-recorded those workshops. Soon afterwards, a tape was released with the actual voices of the adults -- state employees -- made during the workshop (described below). That tape sent shock waves across the country. The story was covered by media in the US and other countries, and is even written about in several books. Soon afterwards a court banned the posting or distribution of the "Fistgate" tape until recently.
Among the goals were to build more Gay/Straight Alliances in Massachusetts and expand homosexual teaching into the lower grades. Scores of gay-friendly teachers and administrators attended. They received state "professsional development credits."
Jennings also broke the law when a 15 year old male student confided to him that he was having a sexual affair with an older man. Instead of calling the police, as the law demands, this teacher told the boy to be sure to use a condom……

Green Jobs Czar: Van Jones,an Apollo board member, was Special Advisor for Green Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation at the White House Council on Environmental Quality. Some time ago, while he was in prison he wrote: “I met all these young radical people of color — I mean really radical, communists and anarchists. And it was, like, ‘This is what I need to be a part of.’ I spent the next ten years of my life working with a lot of those people I met in jail, trying to be a revolutionary".
He is a man who proclaimed himself to be a "communist" in the 1990s and signed 9/11 "truther" petitions suggesting Bush administration complicity in the Sept. 11 attacks. Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement (STORM), the revolutionary group formed by self-described "communist" and "rowdy black nationalist" Van Jones, held a vigil in Oakland, California, "mourning the victims of U.S. imperialism around the world" on the day after 9/11 and was now to be part of the Obama administration's push to turn Sept. 11 into a National Day of Service focused on the promotion of the radical environmentalist agenda. Jones has proclaimed publicly that whites are purposely poisoning minority neighborhoods. Jones said, "The white polluters and the white environmentalists are essentially steering poison into the people of color communities."

Explaining his job as Green Czar, he said, "We're going to change the whole system! We're going to change the whole thing. We want a new system. We want a new system." This statement is especially troubling coming from a self-avowed communist radical with extensive ties to other communist revolutionaries.

Guantanamo Closure Czar: Daniel Fried
Health Czar: Nancy-Ann DeParle Director of the White House Office for Health Reform.
Information Czar: Vivek Kundra

International Climate Czar: Todd Stern – recommends “an ecological board of directors able to operate outside the bureaucracy and politics of large UN conventions.” He espoused the need to put major environmental decisions in the hands of a small group of people rather than a gathering of all nations.

Intelligence Czar: Dennis Blair - one of Blair’s picks: John Deutch, a former CIA director once accused of major security lapses, who's been appointed to a temporary panel reviewing troubled, top-secret spy-satellite programs.
After Deutch resigned as CIA director in 1996, agency officials discovered he had stored hundreds of pages of classified files on his home computers, despite repeated warnings that they could be intercepted via the Internet. Because of the incident, Deutch was stripped of his high-level security clearances, and a criminal probe into the matter culminated in January 2001, when the ex-spy chief agreed to plead guilty to misdemeanor charges of mishandling classified material. (The next day, Clinton, in one of his final acts as president, pardoned him.)

Auto czar Steve Rattner, entangled in an SEC investigation of his former company, Quandrangle, topped that list until he stepped down earlier this month amid the darkening ethics cloud.

Mideast Peace Czar: George Mitchell

Pay Czar: Kenneth Feinberg, or as Obama called him, a “Special Master for Compensation”

Regulatory Czar: Cass Sunstein- proposed bans on hunting and eating meat. In his book Animal Rights, he argued that attorneys should be permitted to sue for violations of existing animal protection laws, naming the animals as plaintiffs.
Sunstein's 2004 book, The Second Bill of Rights: FDR's Unfinished Revolution and Why We Need It More than Ever, advocates the Second Bill of Rights proposed by Franklin D. Roosevelt. Among these rights are a right to an education, a right to a home, a right to health care, and a right to protection against monopolies; Sunstein argues that the Second Bill of Rights has had a large international impact and should be revived in the United States. His 2001 book,, argued that the Internet may weaken democracy because it allows citizens to isolate themselves within groups that share their own views and experiences, and thus cut themselves off from any information that might challenge their beliefs, a phenomenon known as cyberbalkanization. He also supports the bill that would give Obama emergency control of the Internet, as well as a fairness doctrine for the Internet, from which he has since stepped away.

Science Czar: John Holdren :From his own book: "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." "A program of sterilizing women after their second or third child, despite the relatively greater difficulty of the operation than vasectomy, might be easier to implement than trying to sterilize men," they wrote. "The development of a long-term sterilizing capsule that could be implanted under the skin and removed when pregnancy is desired opens additional possibilities for coercive fertility control." "It must be uniformly effective, despite widely varying doses received by individuals, and despite varying degrees of fertility and sensitivity among individuals; it must be free of dangerous or unpleasant side effects; and it must have no effect on members of the opposite sex, children, old people, pets or livestock." “The fetus, given the opportunity to develop properly before birth, and given the essential early socializing experiences and sufficient nourishing food during the crucial early years after birth, will ultimately develop into a human being.”

• TARP Czar: Herb Allison
• Cyber Czar: Rod Beckstrom
• Border Czar: Alan Bersin
• Intelligence Czar: Dennis Blair **
• Terrorism Czar: John Brennan *

Energy Czar Carol Browner - Obama's Energy and Climate Czar, headed the EPS for Clinton. Upon leaving office, and directly counter to a judge's edict, she told her staff to delete all her files. She was declared to be in contempt of court. She also sent out illegal lobbying material from her office. All this after once saying she was "proud to expand the public's right to know". One of her ideas for energy conservation is to "hold back [heating and air-conditioning] power to homes". Barack Obama has noted that he keeps his White House thermostats at 80 degrees... Browner is one of 14 leaders of a socialist group "Commission for a Sustainable World Society" which calls for global governance [and the loss of the soverignty of the USA], and for rich companies to shrink their economies. This information was removed from her website after it's discovery caused a flap.

• Urban Affairs Czar: Adolfo Carrion, Jr.
• Weapons Czar: Ashton Carter
• Technology Czar: Aneesh Chopra
• AIDS Czar: Jeffrey Crowley *
• Great Lakes Czar: Cameron Davis
• Health Czar: Nancy-Ann DeParle **

. Sudan Czar: J. Scott Gration
. TARP Czar: Herb Allison
. Terrorism Czar: John Brennan
. California Water Czar: David J. Hayes
. Car Czar: Ron Bloom, who is under Senate oversight

This many Czars is unprecedented and begs the question of whether the President of the United States understands the functions of the three branches of government described in the Constitution.

Wednesday, September 30, 2009


The Orange County Register: The issue of whether Barack Obama’s birthplace and legitimacy as president deserves to go to trial was argued this morning in Santa Ana, with no immediate ruling by U.S. District Court Judge David O.Carter.

The course of the three-hour hearing included allegations - but not evidence - that Obama was actually born in Kenya, that he has used 39 Social Security numbers, and that Congress is too corrupt properly address the legitimacy of the presidency.

However, the pertinent issues is the dismissal motion filed by U.S. attorneys defending Obama are whether the court - and not Congress - is the proper venue for challenging the president’s legitimacy and, to a lesser extent, whether the plaintiffs were in fact harmed and have cause to bring the suit. Key to the defense motion for dismissal was the argument that the U.S. Constitution provides only Congress and the Electoral College with the authority to remove a sitting president from office.

“It would be disastrous if a single circuit court judge had the power to remove a president from office,” said Assistant United States Attorney Roger West.


A commentator at Canada Free Press says he has obtained copies of two documents apparently prepared by Democrats to certify Barack Obama as their nominee for president in 2008 that suggest House Speaker Nancy Pelosi knew there was an unresolved issue with his eligibility under the U.S. Constitution.
The first includes a verification that Obama and Joe Biden, then-candidate for vice president, "are legally qualified to serve under the provisions of the United States Constitution
The second form obtained by Williams appears identical, down to a typographical error in "through." But in this one, the verification of eligibility under the requirements of the U.S. Constitution is gone.

"The DNC drafted, signed and notarized TWO slightly different versions of their Official Certification of Nomination documents, not one," he wrote. "One of those documents had complete legal language, and one of them was missing the text concerning the constitutional eligibility of Barack Hussein Obama.

"The version which is absent any certification of constitutional standing for the office of president is the version that was filed with every state in the country, and the one used by the DNC to elect Barack Obama president," he wrote.

WND contacted the Democratic National Committee multiple times over three days to request an explanation of the two images, including whether one might be a forgery. A spokeswoman in the press office confirmed, "We are aware of it," but declined to elaborate.

Likewise, WND contacted the office of Pelosi, but got no response over several days. And the White House declined to respond to multiple e-mails asking for a comment.

WND has reported that among the documentation not yet available for Obama includes his kindergarten records, Punahou school records, Occidental College records, Columbia University records, Columbia thesis, Harvard Law School records, Harvard Law Review articles, scholarly articles from the University of Chicago, passport, medical records, files from his years as an Illinois state senator, his Illinois State Bar Association records, any baptism records, and his adoption records.

WND reported Lucas Smith, the man who tried to sell an alleged Barack Obama Kenyan birth certificate on eBay, filed court papers

insisting – under threat of perjury – that the Obama birth certificate in his possession is the genuine article.

In his filing, Smith declares that he traveled to Kenya in February and paid off a military officer in order to obtain a copy of the birth certificate from Coast General Hospital in Mombasa. The declaration also states that the hospital administrator signed and sealed the copy, which indicates Obama's birth in Africa on Aug. 4, 1

President Obama's Radical Appointees and Colleagues

This is the first of a three-part series of lists of:


{In college}, “To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists.”

~ (Barack Obama, President, from his book Dreams Of My Father)



To which I add: we are known by the company we keep. Just when will our President be known by the company he keeps?

His Appointees and Colleagues: (as taken from Google sites)

Secretary of Treasury Timothy Geithner: He heads the government's IRS and owes $34,000 of taxes for income he did not report while working for the International Monetary Fund. This comes to light, even though Geithner now says he will go after those of us who deliberately attempt to avoid taxes!

Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel: lived rent free for years without divulging this gift as Congress rules demand. He is infamous for sending a 2 1/2ft. stinking fish carcass to a pollster who displeased him. He also repeatedly stabbed a table with a knife while naming Clinton enemies, saying each of their names followed by the word "DEAD! His strong-arm style of work has earned him the nickname of Rhambo.

Eric Holder, Obama's Attorney General, was part of the cover-up of Waco and part of the Elian Gonzales debacle. Worse, he advised Clinton to give pardons to tax cheat Mark Rich, as well as 16 FALN terrorists, without ever talking to the victims.

Ron Kirk, US Trade Representative underpaid his taxes by $9975

Bill Richardson, tapped to be Commerce Secretary, withdrew when he was being investigated for being part of a pay-for-play scandal. Though charges have been dropped, his innocence is an open question.

David Ogden
, Obama's Deputy Attorney General, in charge of the prosecution of obscenity and child porn laws, has had a long list of pornographers as clients, objecting to the regulation of pornographers. He believes that clinics should be allowed to give abortions to underage girls without parental consent.

Tom Daschle, Obama's strongly supported pick for Secretary of Health and Human Services, had a car and driver at taxpayer expense, failed to report over $80,000 of consulting income in 2007, took deductions for $15,000 of donations to charities which don't qualify for deductions, and owes $146,000 in taxes. Yet he is quoted in 1998 as saying, "Make no mistake. Tax cheaters cheat us all, and the IRS should enforce our laws to the letter." In addition, his radical agenda on Universal Health Care includes thinking that "old" people should just do without lifesaving treatment, for it costs too much. Doctors who treat patients when the government declares otherwise would be put in jail. He withdrew his nomination.... but remains an "adviser" to the President on the health care reform bill while he remains a highly paid policy adviser (lobbyist) to hospital, drug, pharmaceutical and other health care industry clients of Alston & Bird, the law and lobbying firm- a clear conflict of interest, if not a breaking of the law. He is attempting to evading lobbyist disclosure by renaming himself as a highly paid "senior adviser" to D.C.-based law firm/influence-peddling shop Alston & Bird. A "resource" is all he is, says he. Daschle lost his Senate seat after asserting a bogus property-tax homestead exemption claim on his $1.9 million D.C. mansion -- which he listed as his primary residence despite voting in South Dakota and claiming it as his primary residence in order to run for re-election.

Daschle was aware as early as June 2008 that he might have to pay back taxes for the use of a car and driver provided by a private equity firm, but he failed to inform the Obama transition team until weeks after Obama designated him the HHS nominee in mid-December 2008.

Nancy Killifer, former Treasury official, withdrew from consideration for Chief Performance Officer due to failure to pay unemployment taxes for her household help - a paltry $9000.

Charles Freeman, Obama's choice for a major intelligence post withdrew after it came to light that he is anti-Israel, and believes that China's Tienanmen Square massacre of about 2500 people who were demonstrating against their government showed great restraint. He has received many large donations from the House of Saud.

Gary Locke, another pick for Commerce Secretary, specialized in China for an international firm, has ties to campaign finance crook John Huang , and took illegal donations from monks and Chinese tycoons

William Lynn, Deputy Secretary of Defense, was a Raytheon lobbyist and donated $100,000 to Barack's campaign and the DNC. He was given a "waiver" from Barack's campaign pledge to keep lobbyists out of his government, especially when they actually lobbied in the same area in which they are placed in his government.

Patrick Gaspard, White House political affairs director (the same title held by Karl Rove in the Bush White House has been revealed as being from the radical advocacy group ACORN. Evidence shows that years before he joined the Obama administration, Gaspard was ACORN boss Bertha Lewis's political director in New York. Lewis, the current "chief organizer" or CEO of ACORN, was head of New York ACORN from at least 1994 through 2008, when she took over as national leader of ACORN. With Gaspard at work in the White House, Lewis might as well be speaking to President Obama through an earpiece as he goes about his daily business ruining the country.

Mark Patterson, chief of staff to Timothy Geithner, was a lobbyist for Goldman Sachs who received money from TARP

Neil Wolin, another lobbyist and a Division President of Hartford Financial who sought bailout money, is now Deputy Counsel for Economic Activity

Hillary Clinton, Obama's Secretary of State, is compromised by the many millions of dollars her husband has taken from foreign countries such as Saudi Arabia for the Clinton Library. This opens her up for conflict of interest or blackmail....

Debbie Stabenow, senator from Michigan, is advocating the non-fair, misnamed Fairness Doctrine in spite of the fact that her husband Thomas Athans established the far left radio show Democracy Radio. When it failed he became a chief executive of Air America - which has also failed to find a large audience for it's left-leaning programs. Therefore, she is compromised in her efforts to shut down conservative radio programming. It's the wrong thing to do in any case.

Charlie Wrangle, whose committee, Ways and Means, sets tax regulations, has 4 Harlem rent-controlled apartments which he claims, all of them as primary residences - against the law. He paid his son $80,000 for a $100 website construction. He used, again against the law, his Congressional letterhead to solicit funds for his Charles Wrangle Center for Public Service. He failed to pay taxes on $75,00 of income from his Dominican Republic condo rentals. He claimed yet another primary residence in D.C, for which he is ineligible. He is leading the charge for a new 5.4-percentage point income tax surcharge and recently called it “the moral thing to do.” The House Ethics Committee is investigating Mr. Rangel on no fewer than six separate issues, including his failure to report the no-interest loan on his Punta Cana villa and his use of rent-stabilized apartments. It is also investigating his fund raising for the Charles B. Rangel Center for Public Service at City College of New York. New York labor attorney Theodore Kheel, one of the principal owners of the Punta Cana resort, is an important donor to the Rangel Center. Mr. Rangel, who is facing investigations by two House subcommittees into his personal finances and fund-raising, filed amended financial disclosure forms on Aug. 12 acknowledging that he had omitted an array of assets, business transactions and sources of income. They include a Merrill Lynch Global account valued between $250,000 and $500,000; tens of thousands of dollars in municipal bonds; and $30,000 to $100,000 in rent from a multifamily brownstone building he owned on West 132nd Street.

The Harlem Dem now admits that he failed to disclose several million dollars in income and business deals during those years -- including up to $1 million from the sale of a building on 132nd Street. How could that happen? Charlie won't say. Even stranger, city records show that Rangel still owns the building. How can that be, if Rangel sold it, as he now claims? Maybe the records are wrong, but Charlie's not talking.

Now it is Rangel's committee which seeks to reduce legal defenses and increase fines and penalties on taxpayers undergoing IRS scrutiny. Except for himself, of course.

Senator Christopher Dodd, after denying any part in the assurance of bonuses being paid to AIG executives, admitted that it was HIS amendment to the Stimulus Bill that contractually gives them those bonuses. He is second only to Barack Obama in campaign monies received from AIG - at over $100,000. Also, after denying the truth for many months, he has now admitted that he received below-market mortgage rates on his two homes by Countrywide Financial, and has said he will renegotiate those loans. This is a clear violation of Senate ethics, if not the law...

Sonia Sotomayor
: Obama's first Supreme Court appointee famously said: "I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would, more often than not, reach a better conclusion." In other words, she would use her background and not the law to determine her judgements....

I will leave it to you to decide which of these characters fit the liberal Camille Paglia’s March 14 column “
Blame Everyone-Anyone But Man In Charge” labels as flacks, goons, fixers, smart alecks, provincial rubes, lackeys, yes men, tax cheats, polished turds, fellow Ivy League Affirmative Action admits, rank and file goosesteppers, or oafish bunch of frat boys.

President Obama's diversity Czar at the Federal Communications Commission proposes adding a vast public broadcasting system to the growing list of Obama's parallel institutions. (Snip) In Prologue to a Farce: Communication and Democracy in America, Mark Lloyd proposes what would become a huge federal broadcasting system and yet another Obama parallel institution. He is quoted as saying, :"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". [It would join the ''civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded'' as the U.S. military].

It was the most Obamaesque address to date. ''For those who question the character and cause of my nation,'' the president pronounced, ''I ask you to look at the concrete actions we have taken in just nine months.'' America is 233 years old. Some think that there are ample accomplishments speaking to our character and cause that predate Obama's ascension to the presidency.
From Fox News: The health insurance company targeted by the Obama administration and a top Senate Democrat properly followed guidance dating back to the Clinton administration and should not be punished, Republicans said. House and Senate Republicans have put up a wall of resistance against the decision by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to launch a probe into Humana (Snip) Senate Republicans on Thursday threatened to block Obama's health care-related appointments if the decision is
Documents released by a Senate Republican show that leaders of the ACORN community organizing network transferred several million dollars in charitable and government money meant for the poor to arms of the group that have political and sometimes profit-making missions. ACORN's tax-exempt groups and allied organizations, long a target of conservative ire, used more than half their charitable and public money in 2006 to pay other ACORN affiliates... (Pittsburgh Tribune)
From the NY Times: John Kerry last week sought to change the vernacular surrounding the climate bill and sell its concepts more broadly, insisting it is not a "cap and trade" proposal but a "pollution reduction" bill. "I don't know what 'cap and trade' means. I don't think the average American does," Kerry said. "This is not a cap-and-trade bill, it's a pollution reduction bill." [Now, we can all be in favor of that, right? Not......]

Mark Tapscot reports that Obama and his colleagues claimed in a class-action lawsuit in 1994 that Citibank had rejected loan applications by the plaintiffs simply because they were black, or because they lived in predominantly black neighborhoods. In short, the suit was one of thousands filed during the 1990s claiming racial bigotry, not poor credit histories, explained high rejection rates among minorities applying for mortgages.

Whatever you think on that issue, here's what struck me: After four years of haggling, Citibank settled with Buyck, a Chicago woman, out of court. She received $60,000. Obama and the other lawyers on the plaintiff side got $950,000.

There you have it. Our courtrooms have turned into a legal lottery system. And Democrats will never support any real reforms because the overwhelming majority of the attorneys that play the system contribute big sums of money to Democrats. [Don't count on tort reform with the health care bill].

The Washington Post reports that: the Obama administration is close to rolling out two initiatives aimed at addressing lingering problems from the financial crisis: A long-delayed effort to cleanse financial firms of their toxic assets, and a $35 billion plan to prop up state programs that help lower-income borrowers get affordable mortgages. [Say, Mr. President - isn't this what got this great country into trouble in the first place - giving mortgages to those who could never pay them?]
[The next time someone tries to tell you that you are racist for expressing disagreement with our first black President, try to keep the following in mind].....

This piece by Lloyd Marcus, a black conservative, is called "Stop Allowing The Left To Set The Rules", and deals with the alleged racism of the anti-Obama opposition. A Mr Marcus notes:

The Left published a cartoon depicting former black Secretary of State Condolezza Rice as an Aunt Jemima; another depicted Rice as a huge-lipped parrot for her Massa Bush. Neither were considered racist by their creators or publishers, or even widely condemned on the Left.

In opposition to black Republican Michael Steele's campaign torun for U.S. Senate, a liberal blogger published a doctored photo of Steele in black face and big red lips made to look like a minstrel. The caption read, "Simple Sambo wants to move to the big house". Not one Democrat denounced these racist portrayals of black conservatives.

True. Nobody minds liberal commentators expressing the hope that Clarence Thomas "will die early from heart disease like many black men", etc.
Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D.-R.I.) says people will be able to stop doctors from including records of sexually transmitted diseases and abortions in the new national system of Electronic Health Records that was mandated by the stimulus law enacted in February. The law says that doctors, hospitals and other health care providers must create an Electronic Health Record (EHR) for every American by 2014 or else face deductions. [Isn't that comforting? And I'm sure no one in the government will illicitly access what is in your records, either].
The latest Breitbart news shows ACORN members praying to Obama, with a religious-like chant following each plea to Obama. More later.....

American Ingenguity, ACORN, Health Care Bill

BANGKOK (AP) – For the first time, an experimental vaccine has prevented infection with the AIDS virus, a watershed event in the deadly epidemic and a surprising result. Recent failures led many scientists to think such a vaccine might never be possible.Even though the benefit is modest, "it's the first evidence that we could have a safe and effective preventive vaccine," Col. Jerome Kim told The Associated Press. He helped lead the study for the U.S. Army, which sponsored it with the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. [This is the ingenuity of America on display - and in part is the reason our health care costs more than most nations.]
The liberal Howard Fineman has written, in part, the following about our President:
The president's problem isn't that he is too visible; it's the lack of content in what he says when he keeps showing up on the tube. Obama can seem a mite too impressed with his own aura, as if his presence on the stage is the Answer. There is, at times, a self-referential (even self-reverential) tone in his big speeches. They are heavily salted with the words "I" and "my." (He used the former 11 times in the first few paragraphs of his address to the U.N. last week.) Obama is a historic figure, but that is the beginning, not the end, of the story.
The Wall Street Journal reveals that: Already facing the loss of federal government funding, the community-organizing group Acorn also has run afoul of one of its big corporate partners, Bank of America Corp. In response to questions from The Wall Street Journal, a spokesman for the banking company said it has ''suspended current commitments'' to Acorn Housing, an affiliated group, and ''will not enter into any further agreements with Acorn or any of its affiliates,'' pending assessments by the bank .

The Denver Post reports the following, part of which reveals that some of the Stimulus Money has been given to a nonprofit group called PAVE. I wonder if they are one of the arms of ACORN....

"The goal was to build a reporting system that allows the public to follow the zigzagging paths of dollars awarded under the $787 billion federal stimulus package.

A financial GPS of sorts.

But despite federal lawmakers' pledge of transparency, the final stages of most money trails, along with key information about job impacts, will remain invisible to users of the website when it debuts next month.

Only details of a stimulus grant's passage through its first two stops after it leaves the federal government must be reported, according to guidance memos from the White House Office of Management and Budget.

That means billions of dollars will be untrackable and thousands of recipients will be left unidentified through the database, officials acknowledge". [ There goes that transparency promise].


The American Spectator: Newly discovered evidence shows the radical advocacy group ACORN has a man in the Obama White House.

This power behind the throne is longtime ACORN operative Patrick Gaspard. He holds the title of White House political affairs director, the same title Karl Rove held in President Bush's White House.

Evidence shows that years before he joined the Obama administration, Gaspard was ACORN boss Bertha Lewis's political director in New York.

Lewis, the current "chief organizer" or CEO of ACORN, was head of New York ACORN from at least 1994 through 2008, when she took over as national leader of ACORN. With Gaspard at work in the White House, Lewis might as well be speaking to President Obama through an earpiece as he goes about his daily business ruining the country.

The Wall St. Journal: The more we inspect Max Baucus's health-care bill, the worse it looks. Today's howler: One reason it allegedly "pays for itself" over 10 years is because it would break all 50 state budgets by permanently expanding Medicaid, the joint state-federal program for the poor. Democrats want to use Medicaid to cover everyone up to at least 133% of the federal poverty level, or about $30,000 for a family of four. [And now news comes that the senate committee has decided that we the people shall NOT have even 72 hrs. to read the bill prior to their vote, for it's "complicated"].
