Revisiting My Pre-election Letter to the Editor - Refused by Local Paper

Prior to the last election, I tried for
4 weeks to have this letter run in our 
local paper. At the time, the paper
refused to run this because, according to
the Editor: "most of the facts that you
claim have been repeatedly shown as
inaccurate, or grossly misstate
associations and positions." Really? 
Let's revisit them. Ten Reasons I
Will Not Vote for Barack Obama
1)From years of mentoring by his “friend
Frank" (Marshall Davis), a member of 
the Communist Party of the USA - thru
friendships and associations with Chicago 
felon Tony Rezko, unrepentant Weather
Underground terrorist William Ayers, the group ACORN (for whom he was a lawyer and
 trainer; to whom his campaign has donated $800,000; and being the group who has 
been found to be registering thousands of fraudulent voters); and his 20 year 
membership in Reverend Wright's Black Liberation Theology Church, he doesn't have
the judgement to NOT associate with radicals. With whom will he likely fill his
cabinet?  [My three part series in my blog answers this one, in October 2009. This
letter should have said that Barack IS a radical with a radical agenda for
 2) He advocates income redistribution as Marxist Saul Alinsky prescribes “from 
those according to their ability, to those according to their need”.  This - even 
though the bottom 40% of Americans pay NO taxes, and the upper 5%, on whom he plans
to increase taxes, already pay 60% of all taxes.  It is these very people who buy 
products, spend money and employ the rest of us.  He wants to do this even knowing
that it will cause less money to go to the government, in the interest of 
“fairness”.  Taxes will be increased by another 10% on those who sell a home or 
stocks, as well as on those of us who have earned interest and dividends.  Taxes 
would be increased by 6.2% for those families earning over $102,000 because he 
plans to no longer cap Social Security taxes.  When he raises taxes on corporations
jobs will be shipped overseas where the taxes are much lower. [This was prior to 
Joe the Plumber, as well as the appointment, unconfirmed by Congress, of "rationing
King", our new man in charge of Medicare and Medicare.] 
3) While excoriating greedy CEOs, lobbyists and Republicans over the current 
financial meltdown, his associates Franklin Raines and Jim Johnson bilked Fannie
Mae of over $130 million as the company was going broke. In the last 3 years alone
this lobbyist-hating would-be President took the second largest amount of PAC funds
($130,000)from Fannie Mae, a total which is 49 times the amount that McCain was 
given over his lifetime. [During his administration, Obama has kept his hands off 
of government oversight or regulation of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and has 
positioned the gov't to take over failing financial institutions.] 
 4) Americans give billions to poverty-plagued nations.  Barack plans to force us
to give another .7% of our Gross Domestic Product to the graft-ridden UN as part of
his Global Poverty Act. [His goal actually is to redistribute the hard won wealth
of Americans to the poor of the world; to give Amnesty (with critical voting 
rights) to millions of illegals; and to collapse our Capitalism system.] 
 5) He favors meeting with  evil enemy leaders without preconditions.  He has 
negotiated with Iraq, in violation of our Constitution, asking them to not
allow US soldiers to be sent home until after he is elected, so that he can get
the credit. [He now literally bows to our enemies and insults our allies. We have
learned that he hates Britain most likely because they imprisoned and daily 
tortured his Kenyan grandfather.]
 6) He would guarantee our loss in Iraq by telling enemies exactly when our troops 
will leave, regardless of conditions on the ground.  Al Qaeda will wait til we 
leave, take over the county, execute those Iraqis who fought for freedom, and 
exclaim victory over a weak USA. [I was wrong here, as it is in Afghanistan where
he is following this plan, putting in place as the Commander there a man he was
willing to trash as the Commander in Iraq.]  
 7) He has accused our troops of  “air-raiding villages and killing civilians” in
Afghanistan, fueling the world’s hatred and giving talking points to our enemies.
[He called our corpsmen - corpse-men. Now, during his Administration, we have
soldiers who must not shoot until shot upon and must never shoot is one civilian is
in the area, a rule which the enemy enjoys using to their own benefit.  More and 
more of our soldiers are being killed, but the media no longer berates the man in
 8) Any criticism of Barack Obama has been and will continue to be falsely decried 
as racism, for he will not admit that it is his radical agenda which is in 
question.[This is shockingly true - in spades, no pun intended. I was right on 
the money on this one! Some in the Justice Department have been told they may not
prosecute any black man or woman, for that would be racist! Race relation in 
America have been set back decades] 
 9) Terrorist William Ayers placed Obama as Chairman of his Annenberg Challenge. 
Barack directed $50M to a project to specifically "radicalize" Chicago's public 
school education agenda. [He has demonstrated via his appointment to "safe school
czar, in particular, his radical agenda for children, including having been ok with
a male teacher's affair with a boy student, as well as distributing, at a seminar 
for middle and upper grade school children, pamphlets on the art of "fisting" (ask
a young person what this means). It is so sad that I have to be so graphic in order
to wake up those in self-imposed slumber.]
 10) He claims to want to reduce money in politics - yet his campaign has raised 
over $220M, some of it illegal,for use against McCain who, along with Obama,
pledged to use only public funds in his campaign. 
 And this is a Post-Racial Candidate?  Please.....I pray we are not this easily 
duped.  Our country is at stake. 
Well - we WERE easily duped, partly because the Mainstream Media was complicit in
not asking tough questions and not questioning Barack's background, [as well as the
fact that it is easy to be complacent and not bother to vote, or to hate Bush so
much that all possible reason flew out the window for those who didn't want to see
the truth.]  Charlie Rose and Tom Brokaw, just days prior to the election, had the
gall to say, "You know, we really don't know anything about this man...." [Wasn't
that their job?] Those who refused to heed what we did know have had some time to
understand what a radical man can quickly do to his country, haven't they?
  In witnessing the ways in which Barack Obama seems to forget that he is half
white, as well as the dropping of charges against the Black Panthers who 
openly intimidated voters in Philadelphia, I recall Obama's discussion of Malcolm X 
during one of his speeches.  He said that he recalled that Malcolm X wished "that 
the white blood that ran thru him, there-by an act of violence, might somehow be 
expunged. The other race, he said, would always remain just that: menacing, alien 
and apart. I knew that for Malcolm X that wish would never be incidental. I knew 
as well that traveling down the road to self-respect, my own white blood would
never recede into mere abstraction."
What have we voters done to ourselves by voting for a man who reveres Malcolm X
and surrounds himself with only the most radical people?  Isn't it time to change
direction?  Feel free to email this one, and all others, to the world!

Intelligence Funding; TARP Audit; Gov't Racism Against Whites; Push for Energy Bill; Felons For Al Franken Coming to Michigan

Fox News reports: The Obama administration is bracing for the first in a series of Washington Post articles said to focus in unprecedented detail on the government's spending on intelligence contractors. The intelligence community is warning that the article could blow the cover of contract companies doing top-secret work for the government. At the same time, a senior administration official acknowledged that the kind of wasteful spending expected to be spotlighted in the series is "troubling" and something the administration is trying to address. [A Washington Post article reports that Some 854,000 people - or nearly 1 1/2 times the number of people who live in Washington - have top-secret security clearance.
[An audit of TARP funding reveals the following, from the New York Times:]  President Obama’s auto task force pressed General Motors and Chrysler to close scores of dealerships without adequately considering the jobs that would be lost or having a firm idea of the cost savings that would be achieved, an audit of the process has concluded.  [Can people finally begin to understand what the term "empty suit" means?]
Two weeks ago, the White House informed the state of Oklahoma that it could expect no federal aid to help deal with the damage caused by recent flooding. There was no explanation, no expression of sympathy, no offer of alternatives.
Consider these actions. If anyone during the 2008 had implied, or even speculated, that Obama was capable of anything of the sort, he'd have been dismissed as a demagogue, a hater, even a lunatic. But today, after his abandonment of the state of Tennessee (also wracked by flooding), his betrayal of the Georgians, his pulling the rug out from under the Poles and Czechs, his dragging and cold response to the Gulf blowout, his insults to the UK, the GOP, the Supreme Court, Benjamin Netanyahu, and the Dalai Lama, it scarcely raises a shrug. That's Obama. That's how he acts -- with arrogance, superciliousness, and indifference. We can search the entire roster of American presidents, and we will not find a match. This is not the behavior of an elected chief executive; it's the conduct of a divine right monarch, and a pretty inadequate one as well.

Conduct of this sort inevitably produces a reaction -- contempt from equals, and hatred from victims. Obama has created a lot of victims in eighteen months of power, and that reaction has been growing.
Andrew Brietbart of Big Government: released a video of Shirley Sherrod, the USDA Georgia director of Rural Development, speaking at the NAACP Freedom Fund dinner in Georgia.
In her meandering speech to what appears to be an all-black audience, this federally appointed executive bureaucrat lays out in stark detail, that her federal duties are managed through the prism of race and class distinctions.
[...]Sherrod describes how she racially discriminates against a white farmer. She describes how she is torn over how much she will choose to help him. And, she admits that she doesn’t do everything she can for him, because he is white. Eventually, her basic humanity informs that this white man is poor and needs help. But she decides that he should get help from “one of his own kind”. She refers him to a white lawyer.

Due to the NEW media (that is Fox, ect, and we the people), the truth got out and here is the upshot, from Fox News : The Agriculture Department announced Monday, shortly after published its initial report on the video, that Sherrod had resigned.
"There is zero tolerance for discrimination at USDA, and I strongly condemn any act of discrimination against any person," Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said in a written statement.
[Next up, before Democrats go home to "meet" their constituency, and more importantly, before they lose their seats in the November elections, comes news that an Energy bill is to be pushed thru the House.] The Hill reports: time is of the essence, as Reid has pledged to begin the energy debate the week of July 26. That would give Democrats two weeks to pass energy reform and confirm Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan by the August recess, scheduled to begin Aug. 6.

The recess is scheduled to last five weeks, giving lawmakers facing tough reelections — including Reid — plenty of time to campaign. The House is scheduled to begin its recess on July 30.

Reid has warned that he may cut a week off the Senate recess if the legislative pace slows.
Google reports:  Earlier this week, Fox News reported that convicted felons voting illegally may have swung the pivotal 2008 Minnesota Senate race in favor of Al Franken.  It appears Democratic Secretary of State Mark Ritchie did little to combat this fraudulent activity.  
Mr. Ritchie took office in 2006 thanks in part to the significant financial backing of The Secretary of State Project, a liberal advocacy group funded largely by billionaire George Soros.  Mr. Soros' aim is to capture Secretary of State seats in swing states, establishing an electoral advantage for future elections.  Unfortunately, his plan worked to perfection in Minnesota, as Mr. Ritchie helped deliver the Democrat's 60th vote in the U.S. Senate.

Now, Mr. Soros has turned his attention to Michigan.  His group has made electing Michigan Democrat Jocelyn Benson one of its top priorities.

What is Fascism; Peggy Noonan Dislikes Obama's Youth; and Is it A Demand or Is It a Tax?

AIP News writes: Fascism is really no more than a system where government, through agreements with the private sector, controls virtually all property and income indirectly
Prosperity and economic growth become the domain of government.  The philosophical aim is to eliminate recessions by eliminating robust growth -- the underlying philosophy being that if there is no boom, there will be no bust.  This system usually appeals to populations coming out of severe economic depressions and upheaval, as in pre-Nazi Germany during the period of the 1930s. 

The problem with the system is obvious:  property-owning democracy must take a back seat to the interests of the state.  And, by blurring the distinction between the private sector and the public sector, individual liberty can often be conditioned on complicity with state aims, as manifested in the private sector sphere.  Why else would German companies like Degesch be willing to supply the infamous Zyclon-B for use in the extermination of their fellow men if not conditioned upon the continued viability of the company and all employees concernedMoney talks, and when the state controls the powers of production directly or indirectly, it controls the livelihood of millions.  Human beings are capable of such immense evil in exchange for clothing and a full pantry.  
Fascism is, however, correctly associated with tyranny since nations that employ the tenets of fascism almost always transition from a republican or parliamentary form of government to some sort of personality cult usually centered on an economic "savior."
President Obama has done just this. 
Shortly after he claimed the right to fire the head of a private company, Obama realized he could claim the power to set wages in companies receiving bailout funds.  When these actions were successful, Obama realized he could then claim the power to set wages all across the economy, even venturing as far as attempting government mandates for company perks like private jets or club memberships

Similarly, when it was clear Congress would not object to Obama claiming the power to declare martial law, in direct violation of historic statute, Obama then contended that, in the event Congress would not cooperate, he would merely rule by decree.  This give-and-take approach has been wildly successful as a means of overcoming major constitutional obstacles to acquisitions of power.

All of Obama's actions have highly fascist overtones.  The fusion of government and the private sector can be observed most clearly in the recent Chicago-style shakedown of BP, wherein Obama forced a private sector company to set up a $20 billion slush fund to be controlled by his team of czars, criminally exceeding his constitutional authority.  Only days after it was clear that this action would not be met with legal challenge, Obama succeeded in passing a financial overhaul bill granting him the authority to seize healthy firms if he deemed them to be at risk, outside of normal bankruptcy procedures which exist expressly for that purpose    [Scared yet?]
[This column reminds me that Obama's mantra is that, in his words, "recognizing that my fate remain tied up with their fates, that my individual salvation is not going to come about without a "collective salvation" for the country.   Unfortunately, I think that recognition requires that we make sacrifices and this country has not always been willing to make the sacrifices that are necessary to bring about a new day and a new age."  [In other words, he and his government must take wealth away from people in order to save people.  Words do mean something, as he says.  Billions of dollars of our money have for decades paid for those who have children in order to get more government hand-outs, for instance.  We are a generous nation, with our taxes and our donations.  It hasn't changed the outlook for those who will not use the free education they are given, who would rather have the government take care of them than go out and make a living, etc. The media were too enamored to inform the masses of what this man was saying and what his words would actually mean to our lives.  In this case "forewarned is forearmed" was overridden by "we want change and hope - and we don't care what kind."  Now we must have change - of an adult, America-loving
 Peggy Noonan [finally]writes:  All right, you know what I think people miss when they look at Washington and our political leadership? They miss old and august. They miss wise and weathered. They miss the presence of bruised and battered veterans of life who've absorbed its facts and lived to tell the tale.
This is a nation—a world—badly in need of adult supervision
Youth is supposed to bring vigor and vision. In general, however, I think we find in our modern political figures that what it really brings is need—for greatness, to be transformative, to leave a legacy. Such clamorous needs! How very boring they are, how puny and small, but how huge in their consequences.
What Mr. Obama needed the past 18 months was a wise man—more on that later—to offer counsel and perspective, a guy who just by walking into the room brings historical context.
Boring: that looks so good right now. Old, that looks so fresh, so new.
[I don't hate to say it - I told you so!  Where was this columnist when this view might have prevented an election of an empty suit to the White House?  She was singing the praises of this exciting man, at least after the election, that's where She lost her conservative mantle while worshiping at the feet of a man the media did not vet.]
The New York Times reports:  WASHINGTON — When Congress required most Americans to obtain health insurance or pay a penalty, Democrats denied that they were creating a new tax. But in court, the Obama administration and its allies now defend the requirement as an exercise of the government’s “power to lay and collect taxes.”
And that power, they say, is even more sweeping than the federal power to regulate interstate commerce.[What a shock!]
