Less than 72 hours to go, and McCain’s campaign is pushing an “anti-Obama” message and a Pro-McCain message second. Rumors continue to circle like sharks smelling blood around Obama, his family and his associates.  As usual the MSM- Main Stream Media has pretty much ignored Obama shortcomings and instead focused on polls surmising an Obama Victory.  McCain managed a one point lead over Obama last week but then Zogby decided to average out the polling for three days in a row, and ta-da, Obama is back in the Main Stream News leading by a huge margin .  “Remember, as I said yesterday, one day does not make a trend. This is a three-day rolling average and no changes have been tectonic.”  said pollster, John Zogby http://www.zogby.com/news/ReadNews.dbm?ID=1627 

Obama’s anti-rumor plan, it seems has worked. Rather than continuing to answer questions directly about lingering questions like: his citizenship, former relationships with terrorists like William Ayers, his ministry with Reverend Jeremiah Wright, the missing L.A. Times tape, or most recently his Aunt who is not only an illegal alien but illegally donated to his campaign, Obama instead has relied on his website fightthesmears.com to alleviate any lingering questions. http://www.fightthesmears.com/  Apparently the Obama campaign is too busy to provide a statement at this time regarding his Aunt, the L.A. Times Tape, or any of the pending litigation against him like Berg vs Obama on his site.   

Obama was quoted in a mid-June Times article saying, “”We have seen this before. There is dirt and lies that are circulated in e-mails, and they pump them out long enough until finally you, a mainstream reporter, asks me about it,” Obama said, bristling. “That gives legs to the story. If somebody has evidence that myself or Michelle or anybody has said something inappropriate, let them do it.”  America has asked repeatedly for clarifications, yet Obama fails to answer directly. 

In the matter of Obama’s aunt, Obama couldn’t even manage to make a comment himself instead relying on spokesman Ben LaBolt, saying that the campaign was returning $265 dollars donated by the aunt to her nephew’s campaign. 

“It may be that Obama’s enduring argument – that America faces challenges too tough to be simply about so-called “domestic terrorists” and whether he has been lying about his birth certificate – will prevail in the end. “http://www.liberalconspiracy.org/2008/11/02/why-do-democrats-keep-losing/

While McCain has often wavered in his message, Obama’s from day one has said “What you won’t hear from this campaign or this party is the kind of politics that uses religion as a wedge, and patriotism as a bludgeon — that sees our opponents not as competitors to challenge, but enemies to demonize.”- Barack Obama, June 3, 2008.  I find it disheartening to know that I and other citizens who merely question his policies are demonizing him and unpatriotic.

McCain too has had his fair share of citizenship eligibility questions lobbed at him.  In April of this year, a number of Obama’s congressional supporters – including Gov. Claire McCaskill (D-MOi), Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT), Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK), Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY), and Sen. James Webb (D-VA) –proposed  and passed a Resolution (S.Res.511) entitled: Recognizing that John Sidney McCain, III, is a natural born citizen. http://www.tulsatoday.com/newsdesk/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=1775&Itemid=2 This was the Resolution:
·  Whereas the Constitution of the United States requires that, to be eligible for the Office of the President, a person must be a `natural born Citizen’ of the United States;
·  Whereas the term `natural born Citizen’, as that term appears in Article II, Section 1, is not defined in the Constitution of the United States;
·  Whereas there is no evidence of the intention of the Framers or any Congress to limit the constitutional rights of children born to Americans serving in the military nor to prevent those children from serving as their country’s President;
·  Whereas such limitations would be inconsistent with the purpose and intent of the `natural born Citizen’ clause of the Constitution of the United States, as evidenced by the First Congress’s own statute defining the term `natural born Citizen’;
·  Whereas the well-being of all citizens of the United States is preserved and enhanced by the men and women who are assigned to serve our country outside of our national borders;
·  Whereas previous presidential candidates were born outside of the United States of America and were understood to be eligible to be President; and
·  Whereas John Sidney McCain, III, was born to American citizens on an American military base in the Panama Canal Zone in 1936: Now, therefore, be it
·  Resolved, That John Sidney McCain, III, is a `natural born Citizen’ under Article II, Section 1, of the Constitution of the United Calendar No. 715110th CONGRESS2d SessionS. RES. 511RESOLUTIONRecognizing that John Sidney McCain, III, is a natural born citizen. April 24, 2008. Reported without amendment Statess

Whereas, since it was entered into Congressional Records as fact, McCain did not have to provide a  birth certificate and neither does Obama, clearly circumventing the Constitution.  No such Congressional record exsisits to recognize that Baraq Obama is natural born.  According to Raymond S. Kraft, an attorney and writer: “The president, The Supreme Court justices, and all members of Congress, have taken an oath to defend and protect the Constitution and have an affirmative duty to protect the Constitution by doing whatever is necessary to insure that presidential (and congressional) candidates meet the Constitutional requirements for the offices they seek. It is a mandatory duty, and failure to do so violate their oaths of office. If they don’t follow this oath in Obama’s case, it will be the biggest swindle in American history, allowing Obama and the DNC to have concealed his true identity and lack of citizenship, thereby conning Democrats out of hundreds of millions of dollars of campaign contributions. If justice is served, dozens of `leading’ Democrats should go to prison for fraud.” from Tulsa Today.

http://www.youdontsay.org/Thoughts.htm Raymond Kraft on his own site, today wrote, ” Once again we have a candidate with wondrous and multitudinous promises. Just vote for him and joy and happiness will forever be ours. All of our wishes will be granted. All of our needs will be met. All of our fears will be banished. Because a vote for the anointed one is a vote for change: glorious, blessed, momentous change! Historians will remind us that Fidel Castro promised change as well. Karl Marx promised change. Adolf Hitler promised change. People bought into those fantasies, not thinking that a promise for change is a blank check for good or bad, anything but the status quo. Historians should also remind us that in almost all such instances, promises of change did not serve the people well.”

I Promise to vote for John McCain.

In Youngstown, Ohiohttp://www.vindy.com/ Rudy Giuliani professed his support in a rally for McCain for President.  This is a man who is prepared to be president,” Giuliani said of his “old friend.”  October 21, 2008. 

Not that he isn’t looking for a job –like Attorney General maybe –but he brought up good points about election polling.  Polls had Kerry winning on the day of the election but that didn’t quite pan out and he enumerated that voters should not be dismayed into believing the trends.  Trends that are especially slanted after Obama pulled in millions of dollars that are completely untraceable.  Oh, except those dollars from Obama’s biggest contributor-to date, it is William Budinger, http://www.opensecrets.org/pres08/search.php?cid=N00009638&name=&employ=&state=%28all%29&zip=%28any+zip%29&submit=OK&amt=a&sort=A  to the tune of $30,800.  William Budinger is listed as an active Trustee for the Aspen Institute, http://www.aspeninstitute.org/site/c.huLWJeMRKpH/b.1096989/k.C19/Senator_Barack_Obama_and_Walter_Isaacson.html  a primarily list of the who’s who of democrats who’s mission is to promote and  “encouraging individuals to reflect on the ideals and ideas that define a good society.” 

Good Society?  WTF?  Can one see the Socialism and related practices of Marxism behind the Aspen Institute?  Take profits and spread them around!  Redistribute the wealth!  Forget about Ayers, and the whole alleged Muslim cover up, The Aspen Institute is nothing short of a profiteering capitalistic, self centered, socialistic group that prides itself on diversity and wants to see Obama as President.  On the board of Trustees for The Aspen Institute sits http://www.aspeninstitute.org/site/c.huLWJeMRKpH/b.612063/k.AE55/Board_of_Trustees.htm Prince Bandar bin Sultan
Former Saudi Ambassador to the United States.  Prince Bandar bin Sultan and the House of Saud have a vested interest in seeing Obama elected. Obama’s foreign policy leaves much to be desired, much to be manipulated, and much to be capitalized on by foreign entities and countries like Saudi Arabia who are actually our supposed Allies.

Long and short— Rudy Giuliani is a great leader but voters decided he would not make a great President.  Giuliani in his support for john McCain for President offers us insight to why he supports his country first and John McCain to be its leader, second.  So should you.  Vote McCain.

It all comes down to the money.  While economist have the US economy in crisis mode, hundreds, if not thousands, have ante up to give Obama over $150 million in contributions.  A record!  I wonder how much of that $150 million is foreign dollars?

Poor Republican nominee John McCain is literally poor.  McCain’s campaign is languishing not only on his message but monies coming in.  The pollsters say that McCain should stay focused on issues and that ads that attack and question Obama’s policies and associations don’t work.  Polls matter but message matters more.  Who owns the polls?  Gallup and Zogby are two polling companies we hear mentioned often in the news but even there associations are suspect.   

http://texashillblog.wordpress.com/ questions this in a great post.  “Also on some minds is the influence of John Zogby’ s brother, James Zogby. James Zogby, who blogs at the Huffington Post, is “founder and president of the Arab American Institute (AAI), a Washington, D.C.-based organization which serves as the political and policy research arm of the Arab American community.” His organization is active in promoting voter registration and mobilization within this community.”  Gee you wouldn’t think there would be undue influence there, eh?  Shame Shame on filling our heads with slanted, misaligned information that says Obama is the victor. 

It is a bunch of crap and McCain better wake up and get his message out now, before it is too late and Obama is in fact the victor in the battle for Presidency.  Ask the questions of Obama directly and stop being such a nice old grandpa figure.  Get Berg on TV to mention the pending court case regarding his citizenship status and 56 questions.  Get Atty. Patrick Fitzgerald to give us an update on Rezko and Obama’s associations.  http://www.americanthinker.com/2008/10/evidence_mounts_ayers_cowrote.html goes as far as to question whether Ayers was the closet author of his biography ,”Dreams from My Father”.  Get friend of Ayers-like Rashid Khalidi, the American-Arab friend of Obama’s with possible tiest to the PLO.  “In the acknowledgment section of his 2004 book, Resurrecting Empire,Khalidi writes of Ayers, “Bill was particularly generous in letting me use his family’s dining room table to do some writing for the project.” 

Get a grip McCain and step up to the plate, you have nothing to loose- America does and if McCain can’t get the truth out there ASAP,  his years of patriotic service to this country are about to come to an end.   There are just so many unanswered questions lingering about Obama, it makes me sick.  And it makes me sick that McCain can’t seem to get this message out.

ORGANIZING AND ISLAM “Organizing in neighborhoods has taken two paths that reflect historic dichotomy between integrationist and nationalist strategies. Many top commununity leaders collaborate on urban issues through city’s grassroots network, forging multi-racial coalitions, while others take black nationalist approach, looking only within the African-American community for leadership and resources. In first category are Ani Russell of community policing network, 312-461-0444; Jacky Grimshaw, former strategist for Harold Washington now working an community transportation issues; 773-278-4800, ext. 133; and Barack Obama, 773-684-4809, whose work to empower blacks has included his law practice, community organizing, philanthropy and most recently electoral politics: he is a candidate for state senate. A quiet leader with broad vision of empowerment and redevelopment in the Grand Boulevard neighborhood is Sokoni Karanja, 773-373-5700, whose nonprofit Centers for New Horizons provides social services, youth programs, education and child care.”

You got it, Presidential Canditate Barack Obama is listed on a Chicago Black community organizing website under “Organizing and Islam” and his name appears with other questionable Nation of Islam -NOI people like; Salim Muwakkil, Mikail Bilal, Abdul Rashid Akbar http://www.islamicrepublicofafghanistan.com/abdul-rashid-dostum/ , Ayesha Mustafaa.   

This is whom Barack Hussein Obama was keeping company with during his “grass roots” years less than less than six years ago, in 2001.  I wish every dime McCain had left would show the headlines and photos of people he has some associations with.   I want a poll that asks clearly and concisely, “Do You Trust Obama?”  Vote McCain. 

“In God We Trust” is on every piece cent of the $150 million dollars Obama has received in contributions.  Will he trust God or rely on his shady associates from the past to form America’s policy for the future? 

If McCain can’t win then let it be his job to make sure every Democratic Voter knows exactly who they are voting for when choosing That One. 

Be warned to keep a wary eye on his motives.

According to the NY Times, Obama is expected to announce in the next few days that he raised more than $100 million in September, a figure that would shatter fund-raising records!  Read that again, he raised $100 million is September.  September alone!

So much for our economy being in the crapper, eh?

Barrack Hussein Obama raised $100 million dollars in donations during the same time Bernanke and Bush preached about how to halt the mortgage lending crisis, and  that led to how to spend the $700 Billion dollars and reform regulatory issues.  The American public hears about how Democrats and Republicans up on Capitol Hill are coming together to work in every one’s best interest.  In a bipartisan effort, our government is trying to help support those hit the hardest in the housing slump and mortgage meltdown–to the tune of, you got it, $100 million.  Only $100 million?  

The Washington Post reports http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/04/02/AR2008040202293.html?nav=rss_politics   that ” Families who cannot afford to repay their home loans — the group at the heart of the mortgage meltdown — would benefit mainly from $100 million to expand foreclosure counseling services and greater latitude for local housing authorities to use tax-exempt bonds in refinancing sub-prime loans.”  You got it, Counseling.  A good talking to, to remind you to never borrow more than you can afford.  COUNSELING!

http://www.hud.gov/news/releases/pr07-144a.pdf   lists national, regional, state, and local housing counseling grantees for fiscal year 2007–all of whom presumably were in operation when sub-prime borrowers got into this current economic fiasco.  The office of HUD- Housing Urban Development provides funds for counseling, groups like, ACORN, La Raza, AARP and hundreds of others.  Isn’t that special?  ACORN?  Yep, the same ACORN that registers Mickey Mouse in an election year.  The same ACORN partly responsible for making “liar loans” .

So maybe the job of congress isn’t to bailout people who took loans they knew they could never afford in the first place but if this bill was supposed to help people stay in their homes it missed by a long shot.  The next bipartisan bill had better provide counseling for the of thousands of people who are about to be homeless.  Earmarking $100 million is like flea on a camel’s ass. 

http://www.fec.gov/pages/brochures/contriblimits.shtml outlines how much money an individual can contribute to a candidate.  In the case of individual donations, the amount is set at $2300.  Seems a lot of folks have money to spare and donate to a candidate while people are loosing their homes and seeing their money disappear before their eyes in the stock market.

Open Secrets http://www.opensecrets.org/pres08/select.php?ind=F07 lists more than $10 million dollars in contributions from the securities industry going to Obama.  To all federal candidates for president and Congress, and to political parties, the securities and investment industries have contributed more than $101 million in the 2008 election cycle, 56 percent of it to Democrats.  Check it out! 

Goldman Sachs $739,521
University of California $697,506
Harvard University $501,489
Citigroup Inc $492,548
Google Inc $487,355
JPMorgan Chase & Co $475,112
National Amusements Inc $432,169
Microsoft Corp $429,656
UBS AG $419,550
Lehman Brothers $391,774
Wilmerhale Llp $383,024
Time Warner $375,063
Sidley Austin LLP $370,916
Skadden, Arps et al $360,409
Stanford University $341,399
Morgan Stanley $341,380
Latham & Watkins $328,879
Jones Day $309,960
University of Chicago $294,237
General Electric $290,584

This table lists the top donors to this candidate in the 2008 election cycle. The organizations themselves did not donate , rather the money came from the organization’s PAC, its individual members or employees or owners, and those individuals’ immediate families.   The money is bundled together to indicate contributions can come from the organization’s members or employees (and their families). The organization may support one candidate, or hedge its bets by supporting multiple candidates. 

http://www.opensecrets.org/pres08/index.php?cycle=2008&type=CD shows Obama having 80 million dollars more in cash on hand while McCain has less than half that.  If you think you’ve heard everything Obama has to say, you are wrong.  He is going to spend that $80 million every imaginable way to get your vote, including the purchasing prime time network TV so he can continue to spew his platform of change.  I hope he tells us why in this crappy economy he has a better solution than providing $100 million for counselling to help people stay in their homes.  Oh that’s right, we already know Obama’s solution to economic crisis–  he’s going to spread the wealth of Joe the Plumber and everyone like him to fix it all.  Shame, shame on Obama and Congress too in appropriating our tax dollars for Counseling.

Fasten your seat belts and stay in the upright and seated position, it’s going to be a rocky ride.
