(Update below) When freedom of the press is compromised in the New World Order, it is nothing less than another example of  government having control over it’s population.   In yet another instance:

The Guardian has been prevented from reporting parliamentary proceedings on legal grounds which appear to call into question privileges guaranteeing free speech established under the 1688 Bill of Rights.

The Guardian is also forbidden from telling its readers why the paper is prevented – for the first time in memory – from reporting parliament. Legal obstacles, which cannot be identified, involve proceedings, which cannot be mentioned, on behalf of a client who must remain secret.

The only fact the Guardian can report is that the case involves the London solicitors Carter-Ruck, who specialise in suing the media for clients, who include individuals or global corporations. ( emphasis mine)

Gagged. Don’t stop the presses.  Last month,  the same reporter David Leigh wrote,  How the UK Oil Company Trafigura tried to cover up an Africa Pollution Disasterhttp://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2009/sep/16/trafigura-oil-ivory-coast

The British oil trader Trafigura has offered to pay out in a historic damages claim from 31,000 Africans injured by the dumping of toxic waste in one of the worst pollution disasters in recent history, the Guardian can reveal.

The compensation deal for the victims of toxic oil waste dumping in west Africa – likely to be confirmed imminently – means the full extent of attempts to cover up what really happened can be spelled out for the first time. They have until now denied the compensation claims, and their lawyers repeatedly threatened anyone worldwide who sought to contradict their version. They launched a libel case against BBC Newsnight, forced a “correction” from the Times, demanded the Guardian deleted articles, and yesterday tried to gag  journalists in the Netherlands and Norway with legal threats.

Supporting his claim, Leigh provided internal emails from Trafigura’s company operatives around the world, which can be seen here- http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2009/sep/16/trafigura-email-files-read .  We do ask if  these company’s internal documents are proprietary or open as court documents?

The  e-mails “give a blow-by-blow account of the oil trading firm’s decision to buy gasoline from the Mexican state refinery PMI via a US oil terminal at Brownsville, and then process it at sea on a chartered tanker, the Probo Koala, using “caustic washing”.

Since the newspaper is under a gag order, we don’t know for sure if the two are related.  We surmise that there is enough preponderance of evidence that they are.  While the abuses allegedly committed by Tragifura come to light, it is not enlightening to know that a “democratic” Parliament has enabled itself,  ignoring laws to turn it’s back on freedom of the press.

“The editor, Alan Rusbridger, said: “The media laws in this country increasingly place newspapers in a Kafkaesque world in which we cannot tell the public anything about information which is being suppressed, nor the proceedings which suppress it. It is doubly menacing when those restraints include the reporting of parliament itself.”

The gag order comes on the heels of Italy’s freedom press rally where thousand’s gathered  protest in Rome’s central Piazza del Popolo against Silvio Berlusconi, Italy’s prime minister.  Berlusconi, owns three of Italy’s seven free-to-air TV channels, has also urged businessmen to stop placing ads in newspapers and magazines that attack him.

His critics say he also exerts considerable influence over state television RAI. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/8289166.stm More commentary comes from http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/libertycentral/2009/oct/10/italy-press-freedom-berlusconi

The Index Censorship does and excellent job at tracking freedom of the press here http://www.indexoncensorship.org/2009/10/press-barred-from-reporting-parliamentary-question/.

cartoon_Malaisie_small_size-2

In yet another example of censorship, the Malaysia government has decided to prosecute the company that published the new cartoon magazine Gedung Kartun for not having a permit. The interior ministry said Zunar’s company, Sepakat Efektif, would be prosecuted under section 5 (2) (b) of the Printing Presses and Publication Act 1984 for “publication without a licence.” As its owner, Zunar faces up to three years in prison and a fine of up to 20 million ringgits.  Guess who issues the license?  The Malaysian government. http://www.rsf.org/spip.php?page=article&id_article=34658

Don’t for one minute think it doesn’t happen in America. Recall the brew ha ha over Ayers and the Obama’s hanging out at a dinner for Rashid Khalidi?  The LA Times refused to release the tape and there we rewards issued for it, including one from Dune Capital.  https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2008/12/13/the-blago-rezko-and-obama-3-ring-circus/ Censored information or witheld information protecting now President Barack Obama?  We have never seen the tape.  Have you seen this one from Sean Hannity and Fox discussing Obama at Rashid Khalidi’s house, toasting the former PLO press director while anti-Israel comments fly about the room?

On September 25, 2009 at a forum, debate and roundtable at Columbia University “UNRWA historical performance in a changing context”  – “Rashid Khalidi of Columbia University also made an appearance as the debate’s moderator—an indication of the spectrum of opinions present—deviating from his role as an objective overseer only to reiterate his colleagues’ anti-Israel and anti-Western diatribes.” http://www.campus-watch.org/article/id/8525.

Rashid Khalidi continues to make appearances and thanks some freedom of the press his views remain public.

The circus used to come only once a year when I was a kid. As an adult, it shames me that this political circus and financial conundrum is playing out on a daily basis in all of America .  The whole world is shaking its head while the media parades it’s selective stories.

Who raised these leaders who have raped the fabric of our Democracy?  “Wasn’t daddy there to change your underwear?”- from Austin Powers. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zN6MxLYB8hM

Having dirty underwear is pretty shitty and lots of politicians are shitting themselves about now.  Guilt by association doesn’t hold up in a court of law, but added up- circumstantial evidence just might.  Patrick Fitzgerald said, “The citizens of Illinois deserve public officials who act solely in the public’s interest, without putting a price tag on government appointments, contracts and decisions.”  I believe he misspoke.  No one in America deserves the hand that has been dealt, not just those in Illinois.

Fitzgerald has been compared to the likes of crime fighter Elliot Ness, and with good reason.  http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/profiles/3710309/Profile-Patrick-Fitzgerald-a-modern-day-Eliot-Ness.html.  At a time when so many Americans have lost faith in our public representatives and the pervasive lack of accountability, it is inspiring to see a man of true integrity and perseverance is just one of many comments on his blog, From the Desk of Patrick Fitzgerald, Fighting for Truth Justice and The American Way, http://patrickjfitzgerald.blogspot.com/2008/12/king-solomon-sen-patrick-j-fitzgerald-i.html

“He doesn’t shy away from indictments because of political party, holiday season or anything else,” said Cindi Canary, executive director of the Illinois Campaign for Political Reform.  http://www.nytimes.com/2008/12/10/us/10fitzgerald.html?_r=1&hp

After nearly a trillion dollar bailout of whom we are still not sure, the Senate in D.C., blocked money for the Big 3 Automakers.  The Union said no wage concessions and that put a stop to it right there.  Unless GWB, the guy who is still our current President, has something up his sleeve -expect to see a huge deficit in the GDP and pronto. 

About the same time in NY,  Bernie Madoff  the former chairman of the Nasdaq Stock Market who founded Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities LLC, the closely held market-making firm was running a hedge fund under an alleged ponzi scheme that racked up billions of fraudulent losses.  

Madoff told senior employees of his firm on Wednesday that “it’s all just one big lie” and that it was “basically, a giant Ponzi scheme,” with estimated investor losses of about $50 billion, according to the U.S. Attorney’s criminal complaint against him. Marketwatch reports, “Madoff counted several large hedge fund investment firms as clients, along with some European banks, so if his firm has lost more than $50 billion, the impact could be widespread. ”  Ever generous, Madoff donated $25,ooo to a Democratic Senatorial Campaign, September 08.  http://www.opensecrets.org/indivs/donor_lookup.php?name=Madoff

Madoff is sure right about the big lie. Look at him, no really look at him here http://www.iliketotellstories.com/2008/12/50-billion-bernard-madoff.html in this photo, this face is someone’s son that it seems willingly defrauded investors like you and me.   Handsome by all accounts, looks honest, an upstanding kind of guy, innocent until proven otherwise.

First rule, don’t shit where you eat.  American’s are weary of all the shit.  The rest of the world is shitting itself that capitalism equates only to greed and corruption and is faltering under the weight of it’s own democracy.  Untold thousands continue to pour in to our borders legally and illegally America, with all her faults, is still the land of opportunity and the greatest nation on earth. 

Obama has preached change and transparency but the desire to do so is far removed from what we have seen in his post election cycle.  Obama has had an excuse for every questionable thing and associate he has ever had.   Obama lists among his associates not only Rashid Khalidi, but” Rezko and Auchi, Odinga, Ayers, The New Black Panther Party, La Raza, Farrakhan, and how could we forget his holiness in hate, the mentor to Barack….Mr. Wright…..” http://www.floppingaces.net/2008/03/23/the-obama-associates/ who upon “God damning” America, said that Wright’s “comments were divisive and destructive.”

“Obama is not the Agent of Change. He is a calculating politician who plays the game the same way politicians have been playing it for hundreds of years – receiving money in exchange for favors from government for his friends and cronies.”  http://rightwingnuthouse.com/archives/2008/02/26/will-dirty-chicago-politics-be-the-undoing-of-obama/

The article “Will Dirty Chicago Politics be the Undoing of Obama” seems to have hit the nail on the head some 10 months later.  He goes on to say, “The Obama-Rezko relationship must be understood in the context of the influence peddling, the casual corruption, the cronyism, the favoritism shown in less than open bidding – all part of a city and state political culture where the politician, the businessman, and the crook frequently rub elbows and sometimes wear each other’s hats.

Hell, remember all the brew ha ha over Ayers and the Obama’s hanging out at a dinner for Khalidi?  The LA Times refused to release the tape and then there we rewards issued for it, including one from Dune Capital. 

Dune Holdings is part of Dune Capital Management LP, started by some people from Goldman Sachs. Founded by Steven T. Mnuchin who has donated a total of $14,400 to Democrats in the past year, including the max $2,300 to Obama. http://www.opensecrets.org/indivs/donor_lookup.php?name=Mnuchin

Seems when Dune Capital first volunteered a $100k reward for the Khalidi tapes, Penny Pritzker (Obama’s finance chairman) and Daniel Niedich (Secretary of Dune Capital) sit together on a Real Estate board.  http://www.dreier.house.gov/pdf/RER%20-%20HR1500%20Support.pdf

Dune Capital also donated to his campaign http://74.125.45.104/search?q=cache:dpUonTZSoxAJ:www.nndb.com/org/037/000171521/+dune+capital+holdings%2Bbarack+obama&hl=en&ct=clnk&cd=2&gl=us.  The Tribune Company, http://www.tribune.com/which owns the LA Times sued to open up Jack Ryan’s divorce file.   Perhaps thats why Obama was able to walk into his Senate seat, virtually unopposed.

I am beginning to think Obama paid for the tape himself.  Obama made no comment that I could find, instead the campaign insisted that its candidate “has been clear that Rashid Khalidi is not an adviser to him or his campaign and that he does not share Khalidi’s views.” 

What did Obama have to say about Rezko? ” I am saddened…this isn’t the Tony Rezko I knew, now he has been convicted by a jury on multiple charges that once again shine a spotlight on the need for reform. ”  Upon learning about Blago’s arrest,  Obama told reporters he was saddened and sobered. “I had no contact with the governor or his office and so I was not aware of what was happening.” http://www.chicagobreakingnews.com/2008/12/source-feds-take-gov-blagojevich-into-custody.html  America is saddened with you, President- elect Obama not only for you but for America herself.  America was also saddened to learn that Clinton really did have sex with that woman. 

We will all be saddened to know if Obama was directly connected to the Pay for Play scam.  http://prairiepundit.blogspot.com/2008/12/emanuel-talked-with-blagojevich.html reports that Rahm Emanuel did have discussions with the Governors administration about possible candidates for the job.  Probably all in the course of a days work.  Right?  The criminal complaint exonerates Obama and his staff, Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell said, because it quotes Blagojevich as saying the president-elect would offer him nothing but appreciation for appointing Obama confidant Valerie Jarrett to the position.  http://www.swamppolitics.com/news/politics/blog/2008/12/rendell_hits_obama_on_blago_st.html

The circus days of the past conjure up aromas of French fries, hot dogs, and buttery popcorn while the sounds were of calliopes.  As today’s circus stars of Blago, Rezko and Obama rolls through main street and main stream media, we smell a rat and now hear the same old song of deceit. 

God Bless America

The anti-Obama rumor mongering hasn’t seemed to dissipate but is flying along under most peoples radar.  I keep seeing more and more people blogging about Berg v Obama, Martin v Hawaii and Donofrio v Wells with statements like, I didn’t know about this until now, and why isn’t this in the mainstream media?  

The reason is simple – there is no proof to rumors.   Circumstantial evidence does not make it fact although one of my lawyer friends could certainly come up with cases where people have been convicted only on circumstantial evidence.  We have to cite the source in lawsuits and understand the rationale and motives behind those that may seek to discrete Obama.  At the same time, we must acknowledge that it imperative to understand that we all have a vested interest in making sure that we have a President who meets all of the qualifications set forth in the Constitution- including the natural born citizen clause.    

I believe in God even tho I have never seen him/her/it.  I believe Obama’s birth certificate exists, even though I have never seen it either. But God is an entity, Obama a mere mortal, fallible like all men.  His fallibility should not come at the expense of America in not producing a verifiable, vaulted copy of his birth certificate.

The amount of circumstantial evidence has begun to add up and many more “regular” citizens who do not make a habit of wearing tin foil on there head are beginning to look again at Obama’s omissions.  From the popular No Quarter http://www.noquarterusa.net/blog/2008/10/13/updated-a-dangerous-mixture-of-lies-and-omissions-obama-ayers-wright-and-farrakhan/ to a whole list of books available at http://shop.wnd.com/store/subdept.asp?SUBDEPARTMENT_ID=131 we begin to ascertain that it is more than the fringe who have misgivings. 

Reviewing a lot of the rumors that began to surface in August 2008,  is http://pajamasmedia.com/blog/obama-did-obama-actually-register-for-selective-service/ and months later we still have unanswered questions that keep coming up.  A question arose about Obama’s registration with the Selective Service and that he may not have done so as required by law.  As Debbie Schlussel points out, “The official campaign for President may be over. But Barack Obama’s Selective Service registration card and accompanying documents show that questions about him are not only NOT over, but if the signature on the document is in fact his, our next Commander-in-Chief may have committed a federal crime in 2008, well within the statute of limitations on the matter. If it is not his, then it’s proof positive that our next Commander-in-Chief never registered with the Selective Service as required by law.  http://www.debbieschlussel.com/archives/2008/11/exclusive_did_n.html   She refers to a copy of his Registration that seems to have discrepancies.  Obama’s COLB has discrepancies and that leads us to ask for clarification once again from Obama.    

There are 29 subjects of controversy that Obama identifies on his website. http://fightthesmears.com/   TWENTY-NINE times he has felt compelled to address issues like Reverend Wright, William Ayers, Rashid Khalidi, his COLB, and to defend himself.  There is no mention regarding his Selective Service issues. 

Being so entrenched to the road to the White House and secure that all of the smears are false, Obama has apparently decided not to attend his grandmother’s funeral memorial service in Hawaii.  http://theindependentview.com/?p=353  “Hawaii residents are invited to a tribute service tomorrow for Madelyn Payne Dunham, President-elect Barack Obama’s grandmother.  Dunham, 86, died two nights before her grandson became the first African-American and the first Hawaii-born person elected President.” http://www.starbulletin.com/news/20081113_Dunham_service_set_for_tomorrow.html

I find it an odd show of respect for the woman who helped raise him, to not bother with her funeral.  I recall his statements regarding Reverend Wright , “I can no more disown him,” he told an audience in Philadelphia of his former pastor, “than I can my white grandmother — a woman who helped raise me, a woman who sacrificed again and again for me, a woman who loves me as much as she loves anything in this world, but a woman who once confessed her fear of black men who passed by her on the street, and who on more than one occasion has uttered racial or ethnic stereotypes that made me cringe.”  http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20081021/ap_on_el_pr/obama_grandmother

Obama probably doesn’t have a tin foil hat, I don’t and most people do not. People who have and wear tin foil hats may look stupid outside of Halloween, but I doubt they are.  http://tinfoilhats.newsvine.com/ has some interesting insights on recent issues, rumors, and topics in the news. 

Hats off to those seeking truth, justice and liberty for all; even if it is under an Obama administration.

09 NOVEMBER 2008: Supreme Court Of The United States (SCOTUS) Supreme Court Justice David Souter has agreed that a review of the federal lawsuit filed by attorney Phil Berg against Barack Hussein Obama II, et al., which was subsequently dismissed for lack of standing is warranted. SCOTUS Docket No. 08-570..  Berg’s petition for an injunction to stay the November 4th election was denied, but the Clerk also required the defendants to respond to the Writ of Certiorari, which I believe, requires the concurrence of four justices, by December 1, 2008. 

The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that people like me and the others who want to know the origins of Barack Obama’s citizenship are not stupid, and the Court it appears to want to see Obama’s birth certificate too.  There is nothing in the main stream media about Berg vs Obama or Martin vs Hawaii and until it is, we have remained on the fringe until being vindicated, at least a little bit.  It seems when talking about Obama’s citizenship that people don’t know a thing, they believe it is a lie or they are following the pursuits of justice to determine his eligibility.  For millions of voters, any citizenship questions they may have had were laid to rest long ago but to others, questions still remain and poignantly is, why President Elect Obama will not just show us his vaulted birth certificate? 

Groups like fact check have show us what is called a ‘re-issued’ certificate, often called by the states a certificate of live birth or a COLB.  A COLB normally passes for a birth certificate and is just as good unless questions arise. A comparison between the two documents can be found here. http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_R-l1iejogZw/SQLJZbuSVXI/AAAAAAAABKM/9B2p–yZzDw/s1600-h/Obama+COLB.jpg

Berg’s web site headlines “U. S. SUPREME COURT AWAITS RESPONSE TO BERG’S WRIT OF CERTIORARI FROM OBAMA, DNC and Co-DEFENDANTS For   For Immediate Release: – 11/07/08 http://www.obamacrimes.com/  “I look forward to receiving defendant Obama’s response to the writ and am hopeful the U. S. Supreme Court will review Berg v. Obama. I believe Mr. Obama is not a constitutionally-qualified natural-born citizen and is ineligible to assume the office of President of the United States.”

Rule 11 as noted by the Supreme Court seems to make it clear that Justice Souter’s granting of a review on the Writ of Certiorari is not a right entitled to citizen Phil Berg, but rather is a matter of judicial discretion based upon a compelling reason. The compelling reason is the Constitutional requirement that no person except a natural born citizen shall be eligible to the office of President.

As I understand it, what this means is that on or before December 1, 2008 Barack Hussein Obama must respond to the writ of certiorari.  The Berg v Obama case really is really about a whole list of 56 questions regarding Obama’s place of birth. http://quipster.wordpress.com/2008/10/11/56-questions-obama-refuses-to-answer-about-citizenship/

The Rule of 11 http://www.law.cornell.edu/rules/frcp/Rule11.htm (4) the denials of factual contentions are warranted on the evidence or, if specifically so identified, are reasonably based on belief or a lack of information.  I can not imagine that as a Harvard Law Graduate and as President Elect that Obama would ignore such a request from the Justices of the Supreme Court and he will be compelled to provide a vault copy his original birth certificate.  In what is called a writ of mandamus to do so, they have absolutely no legal basis to refuse an order of the Supreme Court of the United States.

If Obama fails to do present his birth certificate, surely the Justices would be remiss in being defied.  They will then have to decide what to do about a President-elect who refuses to prove his natural-born citizenship.  Will Obama be held in contempt of court?  The Court may in fact, accept his COLB and in the long run issue a dismissal, citing that the responsibility of eligibility lies in Congress. We have already seen claims by The Federal Election Committee that it is not responsible for proof of eligibility

http://fightthesmears.com/articles/5/birthcertificate  posts his COLB but even that doesn’t’t prove even that is real, only that there is no credible evidence that it is a fake.  The raised seal and authoritative signature needed to validate the document cannot be seen on the scan http://web.israelinsider.com/Articles/Politics/12939.htm.  His campaign has a burden of proving otherwise and his website says that, “Smears claiming Barack Obama doesn’t have a birth certificate aren’t actually about that piece of paper — they’re about manipulating people into thinking Barack is not an American citizen.” Without that that little piece of paper, my friend- the fringe will not be convoluted into believing Obama is an American Citizen and that our Constitution will remain in crisis.  

While Martin has a case that is on the docket in Hawaii for November 18, 2008, there is a million dollar reward for anyone who can provide Obama’s birth certificate https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2008/11/09/obamas-birth-certificate-one-million-dollar-reward/ and a petition- Stop the Obama Constitutional Crisis with a reported 80,000+ signatures –the site got those signatures with out the help of ACORN!.   http://www.rallycongress.com/constitutional-qualification/1244/stop-obama-constitutional-crisis/ 

“I can see a unanimous Court (en banc) decertifying the election if Obama refuses to produce his birth certificate,” says Raymond S. Kraft, an attorney and writer. “They cannot do otherwise without abandoning all credibility as guardians of the Constitution. Even the most liberal justices, however loathe they may to do this, still consider themselves guardians of the Constitution. The Court is very jealous of its power – even over presidents, even over presidents-elect.”  Kraft is a contributor to http://www.familysecuritymatters.org/publications/id.1614/pub_detail.asp

Most citizens, including myself will support the office and pray that should Obama pass through the Electoral collage and take the Oath of Presidency that his decisions yield the best four our future.  With more than a month and a half until Obama takes that Oath, we need a rational conclusion to make a rational judgment that he is in fact eligible.  The final judgment could be be influenced by any chaos that could result from de-certifying and voiding the election.  Found wrong or right, Berg and the American people could loose, even if he is right. 

What could be so hard about that, unless you have no birth certificate to present.

This from Melanie Phillips, October 14, 2008.  http://www.spectator.co.uk/melaniephillips/2293196/pinch-yourself.thtml The Spectator,
You have to pinch yourself – a Marxisant radical who all his life has been mentored by, sat at the feet of, worshiped with, befriended, endorsed the philosophy of, funded and been in turn funded, politically promoted and supported by a nexus comprising black power anti-white racists, Jew-haters, revolutionary Marxists, unrepentant former terrorists and Chicago mobsters, is on the verge of becoming President of the United States. And apparently it’s considered impolite to say so.”
Race Course Against White Supremacy is the new book from William Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn scheduled for release on Amazon next June.  http://www.amazon.com/Race-Course-Against-White-Supremacy/dp/088378291X/ref=cm_sw_em_r_dp_title_featured?ie=UTF8&tag=tellafriend-20 
White supremacy and its troubling endurance in American life is debated in these personal essays by two veteran political activists. Arguing that white supremacy has been the dominant political system in the United States since its earliest days—and that it is still very much with us—the discussion points to unexamined bigotry in the criminal justice system, election processes, war policy, and education. The book draws upon the authors’ own confrontations with authorities during the Vietnam era, reasserts their belief that racism and war are interwoven issues, and offers personal stories about their lives today as parents, teachers, and reformers.”
Amazon doesn’t say if the book mentions Obama or to whom the book is dedicated to. 
Birds of a feather flock together.
VOTE MCCAIN

Read Full Post »

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.

By now, we all know the L.A.Times and numerous other liberal newspapers have endorsed John McCain and it got me wondering who has endorsed McCain?  I also question why the L.A Times will not release a transcripts of a confidential video where Obama and his wife were at a “Jew-Bash” dinner, roasting and toasting PLO associate Khalidi with Bill Ayers and his wife.   If one thinks Obama is hiding pertinent information about his past now, wait and see what he hides from the American People if be becomes elected President.  Too many dirty little secrets. 

Wiki lists a who’s who http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_John_McCain_presidential_campaign_endorsements with notable politicians and movie stars from Clint Eastwood to Lee Greenwood and at  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Newspaper_endorsements_in_the_United_States_presidential_primaries,_2008.  The accuracy of Wiki being reliable is especially questionable when it continues to show that the N.Y. Times has endorsed McCain, when in fact it has endorsed That One.

Info chimps blog spent a little time revealing the disparity geographically of Newspaper Endorsements.  http://blog.infochimps.org/2008/10/22/2008election-newspaper-endorsement-map/Apart from the unsurprising evidence that (choose one: [[Obama is the overwhelming choice]] -OR- [[there is overwhelming liberal media bias]]), I’m struck by the mismatch between papers’ endorsements and their “Red State” vs “Blue State” alignment.”  Definitely an interesting read of factual data with a little bit of a debatable fictional twist.

What gives newspapers and not television stations the right to endorse any one at all?  It is rather obvious which networks are fair and balanced in their political reporting.

In this campaign of Obama being everywhere, it is becoming annoying to see his face and logo go into saturation mode.  The half hour infomercial was an embarrassment to the whole political system, mocking the fact that he chose not receive federal funding.   I think by now Americans after two years get who the candidates are and what they stand for.  Finally, in making light of endorsements we have the  http://www.weeklyworldnews.com/alien-alert/october-surprise-alien-switches-endorsement-to-mccain/ depicting even an Alien turning away from Obama and supporting McCain. 

For sure endorsements matter even when they are from other worlds.  An alien endorsement for McCain has sealed the deal for me and McCain has my vote.
