Another Presidential Cheap Shot;

Hoekstra: Hey That Was A Cheap Shot
U.S. Rep. Pete HOEKSTRA (R-Holland) today said a call out in Holland by President Barack OBAMA was, well, unpresidential.

The congressman reports that the President during his remarks said "some made the political calculation that it's better to obstruct than to lend a hand . . . Now that doesn't stop them from being at ribbon cuttings -- but that's OK."

Hoekstra said he' spent his career fighting against "wasteful federal spending" and against government picking winners and losers.

"I voted against the Democrat's $862 billion stimulus legislation because I knew it was not the right solution to put our economy back on track," Hoekstra said. "But today, as the U.S. Representative for the Second Congressional District of Michigan, I welcomed President Obama to West Michigan. Unfortunately, in my home district, the president did not reciprocate that respect and instead chose to take a cheap political shot."  {Obama said something about those who voted against Stimulus funding and then show up at ribbon cuttings - as usual, in a snarky - I'm so cool - demeanor.  The comedian-in-chief once again...]
According to the Washington Post: An al-Qaeda magazine aims to recruit Americans to launch attacks in the United States with such articles as "make a bomb in the kitchen of your mom," a senior U.S. lawmaker said Monday.
The first issue of Inspire was posted online late Sunday by al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. The English-language publication includes an article by Anwar al-Awlaki, a radical U.S.-born Muslim cleric based in Yemen who is wanted by U.S. authorities. Awlaki writes:
"The tables have turned and there is no rolling back of the worldwide jihad movement. On the eve of 9/11 it was Afghanistan alone. Today it is Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Somalia, North Africa, the Arabian Peninsula, and the list is growing."
The Wall Street Journal writes:  Just a few months ago, amid populist anger at the Fed for failing to prevent the financial crisis of 2008 and bailing out Wall Street, Congress was talking of stripping the central bank of its supervisory oversight of banks or forcing it to submit to congressional audit of its interest-rate decisions.
Instead, the new law gives the Fed more power and a better tool box to help prevent financial crises. It will become the primary regulator for large, complex financial firms of all kinds, such as American International Group, the insurer which built a massive derivatives portfolio that regulators didn't see until it was too late.
In the end, the Fed's emergency lending during the 2008 crisis will face a one-time audit to be published by Dec. 2010 and it will be required—with a two-year lag—to reveal which banks borrow from its discount window. With lobbying from several presidents of the 12 regional Federal Reserve Banks, the Fed also fought off proposals to remove it from supervision of the large number of smaller banks.
"Basically, they ended up winning almost on everything that counts," says Laurence Meyer, a former Fed board governor now with economic consulting firm Macroeconomic Advisers LLC.
From ExposeObamanow: The last time the president held a press conference to talk about the Gulf Coast oil spill it was all about BP. . .they did this, and they did that. And he was making it clear THEY WOULD PAY. There was no sense of WE.. we were not going to assist them in shutting off the flow. WE were not going to bring in the skimmers. WE were not going to clean the beaches.

Today’s press conference was very different. WE closed the spill. WE succeeded. WE did this and WE did that. Today was all about Obama’s victory. Only at the end, when he said; And BP is going to have to pay not only for the clean up, but to reimburse the people and businesses for their losses, that BP was mentioned.

To this president…. all problems belong to someone else … and all successes are a result of his action. [He once again proves that he in no way is a leader.]
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- reports:  Former top terrorism prosecutor chides the national media for failing to investigate Barack Obama’s "borderline criminal" activities in Kenya as a U.S. senator.
Andrew C. McCarthy, the former U.S. attorney who investigated the American embassy bombing in Nairobi, Kenya, charges that Obama interfered in Kenya’s internal politics possibly in violation of the Logan Act.
The centuries-old law bars Americans who are "without authority of the United States" from conducting relations "with any foreign government … in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States."
Obama spent six days barnstorming the Kenyan countryside in support of Raila Odinga, the socialist Luo who was seeking the presidency. Appearing with Odinga at campaign stops,Obama gave speeches accusing the sitting Kenyan president of being corrupt and oppressive, leaving the masses in poverty.  [Perhaps our "brilliant", but ignorant, President really didn't know that this is against the law, as he doesn't bother to actually read laws nor put those who do around him.  Ignorance of the law, however, is not a legal defense.]
According to
“There is no doubt that the Obama Administration is funding the ‘yes’ campaign in Kenya,” [Rep. Smith] said. “By funding NGOs charged with obtaining ‘yes’ votes, the Administration has crossed the line."
"Directly supporting efforts to register ‘yes’ voters and ‘get out the yes vote’ means the U.S. government is running a political campaign in Kenya. U.S. taxpayer funds should not be used to support one side or the other," he added.
According to a chart of USAID received by the three congressmen pursuing this investigation, two organizations have been given over 150,000 dollars to push the Yes Campaign and many other groups have been given smaller amounts, including, but not limited to:
Aim Organization reports: On “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” Vice President Joseph Biden called the exchange [giving up 10 Russian spies and getting only 4 back from Russia] a “good deal” and said that he would have preferred keeping the good-looking Russian woman spy and giving Rush Limbaugh to the Kremlin. [Aren't we so lucky to have a President and Vice President who are both so entertaining, so outspoken against good American citizens, and so smug?]
Writing on the website of World Affairs, Vladimir Kara-Murza says that Yelena Bonner, the widow of academician Andrei Sakharov and a prominent advocate of human rights in Russia, “called the swap a missed opportunity and denounced the Obama administration not only for agreeing to an unequal exchange (ten for four) but, more importantly, for not requesting the freeing of more political prisoners, of whom there are scores in today’s Russia.”
The hastily-arranged “spy swap” ended any chance of finding out in detail in a public forum what kind of information the Russian intelligence service had been collecting and who in the U.S. Government had possibly been recruited or used as assets and contacts.
The book, Comrade J, identifies Strobe Talbott, a former high-ranking Clinton State Department official  and the current president of the Brookings Institution, a major liberal think tank, as having been a trusted contact of the Russian intelligence service. Talbott has denied serving as a Russian agent, but when he was up for his State Department job in the Clinton Administration, he admitted a relationship with Soviet “journalist” and KGB agent Victor Louis.
Holder had no real answer to CBS “Face the Nation” host Bob Schieffer’s question of why, after spending so many years following these agents, they were not prosecuted. Holder could only claim that the 10 were somehow not as valuable as the four we got. In terms of math alone, it just doesn’t add up.
Documents in the case, as we have reported, demonstrate that the Russian agents were seeking information about the proposed arms treaty with Russia and other nuclear weapons information. That treaty, the New START, has now been signed and submitted to the Senate for ratification. It is being criticized by conservatives for giving Russia a strategic and tactical advantage in nuclear weapons.
One document says four Obama Administration officials were specifically targeted in the intelligence-gathering effort. But their names were omitted from the Justice Department documents about the case. If they actively conspired with the Russians, shouldn’t they be identified and arrested and prosecuted?
However, there is another possible reason for the quick release of the Russian agents. It is that powerful U.S. business interests told the Obama Administration that an unfolding spy scandal—and a public court case—could damage their business dealings with the Russian government.

[I hope you like the fact that this Administration has spend $20 million dollars on signs touting that Obama's Stimulus plan is paying for various project.  It's just more of our money, but makes Obama look so good, doesn't it?] This is from ABC
The  Daily Caller writes:  The U.S. Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday rejected a request from top White House adviser Valerie Jarrett to speak at a jobs summit hosted by the business group, the latest escalation in an ongoing war between the two camps.

Taken collectively, the regulatory activity now underway is so overwhelming and beyond anything we have ever seen, that we risk moving this country away from a government of the people to a government of regulators,” Donahue said.
But the move to deny Jarrett a speaking spot at their event pulled back the curtain on the relationship between the Chamber, which has traditionally been one of Washington’s most powerful interest groups, and the Obama White House, which has made a point of trying to weaken the Chamber.

From Investors Business Daily:  Hysteria: A federal report indicates that the runaway Toyota problem was mainly driver error, not a manufacturing or design issue. So when do the official government and media apologies begin?  [Considering the fact that many American car companies also have large recalls, but the mighty Washington regime does nothing to condemn them, some might wonder it Obama's interference in this (again, before the facts were known) might just have been his way to put a foreing competitor out of business.]
Washington Times reports:  A week after suing Arizona and arguing that the state's immigration law creates a patchwork of rules, the Obama administration said it will not go after so-called sanctuary cities that refuse to cooperate with the federal government on immigration enforcement, on the grounds that they are not as bad as a state that "actively interferes. [So, it's okay NOT to follow US law, but it creates a lawsuit for those who DO follow the US laws.  That's about right - for this regime called Barack Obama's presidency.]
Politico reports:  Senate Republicans are demanding to hear from Don Berwick, the physician President Barack Obama recess-appointed last week to run the Medicare and Medicaid programs. Republicans on the Finance Committee, which has jurisdiction over the post, say that not holding a hearing with Berwick would “result in circumventing the open public review that should take place for a nomination of such importance” and “casts a shadow over his legitimacy and authority to serve as administrator during a critical time for CMS.” They argue in a letter to Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-Mont.)
As the Washington Examiner writes, concerning a column by Daniel Henniger:  Presidents can appoint but the House has no obligation whatsoever to fund positions held by individuals whose views are clearly noxious to the maintenance of the constitutional morality that insures republican stability.  You cannot persuade an opponent who has nuked you once from doing it again and again without responding with such force that the costs he must bear are unacceptable to him.
The left, according to the Washington Examiner,  "continues to try to renovate Van Jones' reputation. Jones, the former green jobs czar who disappeared from the White House in a late-night resignation after it was revealed he had signed a 9/11 Truther petition, is one of the headliners at the Hamptons Institute gathering of lefties this weekend."
Read more at the Washington Examiner:
CNS news follows this: A proposed sex education program that teaches fifth-graders the different ways people have intercourse and first-graders about gay love has infuriated parents and forced the school board to take a closer look at the issue. Helena school trustees were swamped Tuesday night at a hearing that left many of the hundreds of parents in attendance standing outside a packed board room. They urged the school board in this city nestled in the Rocky Mountains to take the sex education program back to the drawing board.  [The school is now reconsidering its position.]
From OneNewShow comes this:  Now comes word that $160 million in federal money will be used in Pennsylvania to finance a "high-risk insurance pool" plan that includes abortion -- and those funds reportedly are available immediately. Diane Gramley of the American Family Association of Pennsylvania says she saw the writing on the wall when the order was signed.  While Pennsylvania is the first state to be notified of such funding, Gramley says plans in other states will also cover abortions with taxpayer money used to finance them -- unless they have opted out. "The way it's written, it will cover all abortions except sex selection," she explains. "So if you want to abort your baby because it's a boy and you wanted a girl, it would not help subsidize those abortions." But anything else can be covered, she adds.
American Spectator writes this: What's black and white and "red" all over? The Department of Justice's newly designed website. Gone are the standard red, white, and blue motifs, replaced by an all-black backdrop. And prominently placed on virtually every page of the site is a quote credited to a man who facilitated a greater role for socialists and communists at the U.N., and the global "workers rights movement."  [Everywhere we look, Obama's anti-America agenda shows its ugly head. Sometimes subtle, but inching away from our ideals just the same.]

An Amazing Speech -And A Fun Sam I Am

American Suicide

We know Dick Lamm as the former Governor of Colorado. In that context
his thoughts are particularly poignant. Last week there was an
immigration overpopulation conference in Washington , DC , filled to
capacity by many of America 's finest minds and leaders. A brilliant
college professor by the name of Victor Hansen Davis talked about his
latest book, 'Mexifornia,' explaining how immigration - both legal and
illegal was destroying the entire state of California . He said it would
march across the country until it destroyed all vestiges of The American

Moments later, former Colorado Governor Richard D. Lamm stood up and
gave a stunning speech on how to destroy America

The audience sat spellbound as he described eight methods for the
destruction of the United States . He said, 'If you believe that
America is too smug, too self-satisfied, too rich, then let's destroy
America . It is not that hard to do. No nation in history has survived
the ravages of time. Arnold Toynbee observed that all great
civilizations rise and fall and that 'An autopsy of history would show
that all great nations commit suicide.''

'Here is how they do it,' Lamm said:

'First, to destroy America , turn America into a bilingual or multi-lingual and bicultural country... 
History shows that no nation can survive the tension, conflict, and antagonism of two or more
competing languages and cultures. It is a blessing for an individual to be bilingual; however, it is a curse for a society to be bilingual. The historical scholar, Seymour Lipset, put it this way: 'The histories of bilingual and bicultural societies that do not assimilate are histories of turmoil, tension, and tragedy.' Canada , Belgium , Malaysia , and Lebanon all face crises of national existence in which minorities press for autonomy , if not independence. Pakistan and Cyprus have divided. Nigeria suppressed an ethnic rebellion. France faces difficulties with Basques, Bretons, Corsicans and Muslims.'

Lamm went on:

'Second, to destroy America , invent 'multiculturalism' and encourage immigrants to maintain their culture. Make it an article of belief that all cultures are equal; that there are no cultural differences. Make it an article of faith that the Black and Hispanic dropout rates are due
solely to prejudice and discrimination by the majority. Every other explanation is out of bounds.

'Third, we could make the United States an 'Hispanic Quebec ' without much effort. The key is to celebrate diversity rather than unity. 
As Benjamin Schwarz said in the Atlantic Monthly recently: 'The apparent success of our own multi-ethnic and multicultural experiment might have been achieved not by tolerance but by hegemony. Without the dominance that once dictated ethnocentricy and what it meant to be an American, we are left with only tolerance and pluralism to hold us together.' Lamm said, 'I would encourage all immigrants to keep their own language and culture. I would replace the melting pot metaphor with the salad bowl metaphor. It is important to ensure that we have various cultural
subgroups living in America enforcing their differences rather than as Americans, emphasizing their similarities.'

'Fourth, I would make our fastest growing demographic group the least educated. I would add a second underclass, unassimilated, undereducated, and antagonistic to our population. 
I would have this second underclass have a 50% dropout rate from high school.'

'My fifth point for destroying America would be to get big foundations and business to give these efforts lots of money. I would invest in ethnic identity, and I would establish the cult of 'Victimology.' 
I would get all minorities to think that their lack of success was the fault of the majority. I would start a grievance industry blaming all minority failure on the majority.'

'My sixth plan for America 's downfall would include dual citizenship, and promote divided loyalties. I would celebrate diversity over unity
I would stress differences rather than similarities. Diverse people worldwide are mostly engaged in hating each other - that is, when they are not killing each other. A diverse, peaceful, or stable society is against most historical precept. People undervalue the unity it takes to keep a nation together. Look at the ancient Greeks. The Greeks believed that they belonged to the same race; they possessed a common language and literature; and they worshipped the same gods. All Greece took part in the Olympic games.. A common enemy, Persia , threatened their liberty.
Yet all these bonds were not strong enough to overcome two factors: local patriotism and geographical conditions that nurtured political divisions. Greece fell. 'E. Pluribus Unum' -- From many, one. In that historical reality, if we put the emphasis on the 'pluribus' instead of
the 'Unum,' we will 'Balkanize' America as surely as Kosovo.'

'Next to last, I would place all subjects off limits. Make it taboo to talk about anything against the cult of 'diversity.' 
I would find a word similar to 'heretic' in the 16th century - that stopped discussion and paralyzed thinking. Words like 'racist' or 'xenophobe' halt discussion and debate. Having made America a bilingual/bicultural country, having established multi-cultum, having the large foundations fund the doctrine of 'Victimology,' I would next make it impossible to enforce our immigration laws. I would develop a mantra: That because immigration has been good for America , it must always be good. I would make every individual immigrant symmetric and ignore the cumulative impact of millions of them.'

In the last minute of his speech, Governor Lamm wiped his brow. Profound silence followed. Finally he said, 'Lastly, I would censor Victor Hanson Davis 's book 'Mexifornia.' His book is dangerous. It exposes the plan to destroy America .. If you feel America deserves to be destroyed, don't read that book.'

There was no applause. A chilling fear quietly rose like an ominous cloud above every attendee at the conference. Every American in that room knew that everything Lamm enumerated was proceeding methodically, quietly, darkly, yet pervasively across the United States today.
Discussion is being suppressed. Over 100 languages are ripping the foundation of our educational system and national cohesiveness. Even barbaric cultures that practice female genital mutilation are growing as we celebrate 'diversity.' American jobs are vanishing into the Third World as corporations create a Third World in America Take note of California and other states. Todate, ten million illegal aliens and growing fast. It is reminiscent of George Orwell's book '1984.' In that story, three slogans are engraved in the Ministry of Truth building:
'War is peace,' 'Freedom is slavery,' and 'Ignorance is strength.'

Governor Lamm walked back to his seat. It dawned on everyone at the  conference that our nation and the future of this great democracy is deeply in trouble and worsening fast. If we don't get this immigration monster stopped within three years, it will rage like a California
wildfire and destroy everything in its path, especially The American Dream.

I do not like this Uncle Sam, I do not like his health care scam.
I do not like these dirty crooks, or how they lie and cook the books.
I do not like when Congress steals,
I do not like their secret deals.
I do not like this speaker  Nan,
I do not like this 'YES WE CAN'.
I do not like this spending spree,
I'm smart, I know that nothing's free,
I do not like your smug replies, when I complain about your lies.
I do not like this kind of hope.
I do not like it. Nope, nope, nope!

Kenya Abortions; Our Radical Justice Department;

Daily Caller reports: Republican Reps. Darrell Issa of California, Ileana Ros-Lehtinen of Florida and Chris Smith of New Jersey are calling for a probe to investigate whether Obama administration officials are violating federal law by using taxpayer money to lobby for a new constitution in Kenya that supports and legalizes abortion.
Bigjournalism opines: Not only does Todd Gaziano (Congressional appointee to the United States Commission on Civil Rights) claim that the 2008 Election Day voter intimidation charge against the Philadelphia New Black Panther Party was“open and shut,” but that Deputy Assistant Attorney General Julie Fernandes ordered, “Never bring another lawsuit against a black or other national minority, apparently no matter what they do.” 

The Washington Times reports: J. Christian Adams, until recently a career attorney in the Voting Section of the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division, testified under oath on July 6 about an increasingly radical Justice Department before the U.S. Civil Rights Commission.
According to Mr. Adams, Deputy Assistant Attorney General Julie Fernandes last November instructed prosecutors on the "motor voter" law that governs voter registration. Regarding that statute's Section 8 - which requires that local officials purge their rolls of relocated, ineligible and dead voters - Mr. Adams recalls hearing Ms. Fernandes, an Obama political appointee, say: "We have no interest in enforcing this provision of the law. It has nothing to do with increasing turnout, and we are just not going to do it." Such lawlessness, of course, invites ACORN-style vote fraud.
From comes this: Every year, the Annual Report of the Social Security Board of Trustees comes out between mid-April and mid-May.  Now it's July, and there's no sign of this year's report.  What is the Obama administration hiding?
The annual report includes detailed information about Social Security and its financing over the next 75 years, produced by the Office of the Actuary of the Social Security Administration.
The Congressional Budget Office reported last week in its Long Term Budget Outlook that Social Security was already running a deficit this year.  According to last year's Social Security Trustees Report, that was not supposed to happen until 2015, with the trust fund to run out completely by 2037.
"Diamond Offshore announced Friday that its Ocean Endeavor drilling rig will leave the Gulf of Mexico and move to Egyptian waters immediately — making it the first to abandon the United States in the wake of the BP oil spill and a ban on deep-water drilling.And the Ocean Endeavor's exodus probably won't be the last, according to oil industry officials and Gulf Coast leaders who warn that other companies eager to find work for the now-idled rigs are considering moving them outside the U.S."
Dallas News reveals: Doctors in the Dallas area and across Texas are threatening to opt out of Medicaid because of payment cuts, which would further damage the state's already uneven delivery of health care to the poor. (Snip) "They're going to try to expand the rolls of Medicaid ... and at the same time they want to reduce the reimbursement to doctors," he said, noting tensions between the priorities of federal and state officials.
[I see that the current false statements and failure to disclose current events at the NYT did not just begin in the past few decades. It is a part of their proud past.]  "Further investigation brought to light the fact that New York Times reporter Walter Duranty knew of Stalin's murder of ten million people and refused to report it. To add insult to injury, Walter Duranty won a Pulitzer Prize in the early 1930s for his reporting from the Soviet Union. Nearly eighty years later, the New York Times has still refused to apologize to the Ukrainian people for its complicity in the murder of ten million people. They still hang Walter Duranty's Pulitzer Prize in their building.  There is a record of it. It did happen. The New York Times lied, and ten million people died. My father told the truth. For that I will never forgive the New York Times."  [Can someone tell my just why we should ever take news coming from the NYT as the gospel truth?  They have been proven to have lied many times.  And yet, this is the go-to newspaper for those on the Liberal side of America....]
It is here that you will find the video of:
A Mexican-born candidate for U.S. Senate said he is considering a lawsuit against the Missouri secretary of state for discrimination because her office forced him to produce a birth certificate but "didn’t make Obama show proof of citizenship" to appear on the ballot.
Hector Maldonado, 38, a self-described "Lincolnian Republican conservative," is seeking the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate in Missouri. He was born one of 10 children in Durango, Mexico.Maldonado explains why he thinks his rights were violated when the secretary of state’s office asked for proof of U.S. citizenship when he filed to run for the Senate.
Maldonado, a U.S. Army combat veteran who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, explains on his website that he became a U.S. citizen in 1995. But he said Secretary of State Robin Carnahan sent him a letter in May asking him to produce documentation.
"It said, ‘Hey, you have to prove you’re a citizen.’ I ignored it," he said. "You know, Obama ignored it, so I figured I could get away with it, too."
