We initially supported the deal House Speaker John Boehner cut with the White House to cut $38.5 billion from the rest of the fiscal year 2011 budget. It was only a pittance in the context of all of Washington’s red ink, but it seemed an acceptable start, even if we assumed it would be imperfect in its details. What we didn’t assume was that the agreement would be shot through with gimmicks and one-time savings. What had looked in its broad outlines like a modest success now looks like a sodden disappointment.


All the cuts in the deal aren’t equal. The ones that matter most are the cuts in discretionary spending that reduce the budget baseline in future years. Even with more the details of the deal released early yesterday morning, the exact numbers are still shrouded in confusion, but it is clear the cuts are much less than meets the eye — the gimmickry is not merely around the edges. The $38.5 billion includes real cuts, but also a dog’s breakfast of budgetary legerdemain. According to the Associated Press, the deal purports to save $2.5 billion “from the most recent renewal of highway programs that can’t be spent because of restrictions set by other legislation.” It gets another $4.9 billion by capping a reserve fund for the victims of crime that also wasn’t going to be spent this year — a long-standing trick of appropriators.

The Washington Post reports that a notional $3.5 billion cut from the Children’s Health Insurance Program “would affect only rewards for states that make an extra effort to enroll children. But officials with knowledge of the budget deal said that most states were unlikely to qualify for the bonuses and that sufficient money would be available for those that did.”

The Budget Deal Turns Out To Be A Gigantic Fraud

The Budget Deal Turns Out To Be A Gigantic Fraud

Business Insider ^ | 04/13/2011 | Joe Weisenthal

Originally the deal between The White House and Congressional Republicans was touted for delivering $38 billion in cost savings.
Then, yesterday's analysis showed that the savings were probably just half that, since a lot of the savings came from not spending money that was never going to be spent.
Turns out, the spending cuts are even more minimal than that.

According to the CBO, via National Journal, the total savings come to a whopping... $352 million. With an M.

Trump plans tea-party debut in Florida ['My values are very similar. They're hard-working people']

Trump plans tea-party debut in Florida ['My values are very similar. They're hard-working people']

The Palm Beach Post ^ | April 12, 2011 | GEORGE BENNETT

Posted on Wednesday, April 13, 2011 8:55:42 PM by RobinMasters

Politicians often claim they don't pay much attention to polls, especially ones taken several months before the first voters head to caucuses and primaries.
Then there's Donald Trump.
Less than two hours after CNN released a poll Tuesday showing Trump tied for the lead among potential 2012 Republican presidential candidates, the billionaire developer and reality TV star wanted to make sure a reporter interviewing him had seen it.
Trump also directed an employee to e-mail the reporter fresh ratings numbers showing that the latest episode of his Celebrity Apprentice show on NBC had clobbered CSI: NY on Sunday night.

And Trump reminded his interviewer that a recent Wall Street Journal poll showed him as the top presidential pick among tea party voters.
"I wasn't that surprised," Trump said of the tea party poll. "Because my values are very similar. They're hard-working people. They're people that don't like to be taken advantage of by other countries."

AMERICA HAS NO CAESAR! By Chuck Baldwin

...As previously noted, America does not have a monarchial form of government. Neither is the United States a democracy--the ignorant rhetoric of politicians and newscasters notwithstanding. America is a constitutional republic. Or, one could also say, America is a confederated republic. This means, the government in Washington, D.C., is NOT a NATIONAL government; it is a FEDERAL government.
The doctrine of federalism means there are separate and competing jurisdictions in the United States: the jurisdiction of the federal government, with prescribed and limited duties and responsibilities (i.e., the US Constitution); and the jurisdiction of State government, with undefined and (nearly) limitless duties and responsibilities. And as the founders repeatedly expressed, the states were presumed to have the much greater authority and jurisdiction.
To show you how far down the road of misunderstanding we have gone, when the founders created the US Constitution, it was the states that defined and dictated the authority and boundaries of the federal government; today, it is the federal government that defines and dictates the authority and boundaries of State government. Over the last century or so, we have allowed the federal government to completely invert and distort the very meaning of federalism and freedom in this country.
Therefore, if Christians truly want to follow Jesus’ instructions in Matthew 22, they will be willing to give proper rendering to the lawful prescriptions (and proscriptions) of constitutional government. In other words, for Christians to allow our civil magistrates at the federal level to supplant and encroach upon the authority of the states is to deny the teachings of Jesus Christ, and to, in effect, become heretical in their faith and practice. Remember, the second half of Jesus’ instructions is to render unto God “the things that are God’s.” By allowing an oppressive federal government to trample and usurp God-ordained State authority and autonomy, Christians have sinfully rendered unto Caesar the things that are God’s. How dare them?
Under our form of government, the individual states are “free and independent.” (Declaration of Independence) That means, America is NOT ONE NATION, BUT A CONFEDERATION OF 50 NATION-STATES!................................

Actions to Identify Anonymous Internet Posters on the Rise

Mayer Brown ^ | 4-13-11 | Mayer Brown

Posted on Wednesday, April 13, 2011 7:22:38 PM by bigbob

Technology that provides a platform for Internet users to express their views on a range of topics has proliferated over the past several years. Many of these technologies, such as financial message boards, blogs, social networking websites and e-mail, allow users, or “posters,” to express themselves anonymously by using pseudonyms traceable only through the hosts of the sites or their Internet service providers.

As such speech has increased, so to have actions against Internet-based companies—such as Yahoo!, Facebook, Twitter and Microsoft—seeking to discover the identity of someone who posted allegedly defamatory material. But courts have adopted a standard that creates challenges to obtaining this information.

No more O'Reilly watching *permanently* after that sham episode last night (vanity)



Posted on Wednesday, April 13, 2011 7:27:18 PM by cycle of discernment

I have never been more repulsed by such an ignorant display of bullying arrogance as I was watching O'Reilly's 'de facto' declarations about Obama's gaps, contradictions and ducking of questions.
According to O'Reilly, we can all pack away any troubling notions about Obama now. The all-seeing, all-knowing Bill O'Reilly has declared the "all clear" on all questions concerning Obama's hidden past. And he amazingly did this waving of his magic wand cleansing all doubts without offering an iota of counter evidence!
I used to believe O'Reilly was smart, but no more.
What a disappointment.

I hope this increased attitude of dishonesty and arrogance is the beginning of the erosion of his show. He does not deserve it anymore.
I was a faithful viewer.
Those days are done.

Obama's vision of a redistributive America

Obama's vision of a redistributive America

Orange County Register ^ | 4/13/2011 | Editorial

Posted on Wednesday, April 13, 2011 8:27:07 PM by libertycause13

President Barack Obama blasted Republican budget reform proposals in his national address Wednesday and announced his plan for solving the budget deficit, which can be summarized as: Tax rich people because they should bear "a greater share of this burden."
Mr. Obama's class-warfare rhetoric painted a portrait of two Americas, two competing ideologies and two visions for the nation's future. The battle, he said, is "about changing the basic social compact in America."

His vision of a government taking ever-more from its productive citizens, then acting as a kind of national conscience and clearinghouse that decides who should get the spoils, left us chilled and wanting a different America, one of individual initiative and self-responsibility, of voluntary participation in our community life, and of voluntary contributions of time and money to our fellow citizens in need.

THE GLOBALISTS’ TAKEOVER OF AMERICA: Part 1 – COLLAPSE THE ECONOMY

THE GLOBALISTS’ TAKEOVER OF AMERICA: Part 1 – COLLAPSE THE ECONOMY

http://noisyroom.net/blog/ ^ | 4-13-11 | AJ

Posted on Wednesday, April 13, 2011 8:27:52 PM by Whenifhow

Obama, George Soros, the United Nations (UN) and the global elites (Democrats, Union leaders and some Republicans) are accelerating their plan to bring America into their Global Governance scheme which will usher in the New World Order (their term, not mine).
Financially, they need to collapse America’s economy to establish a new global structure. Within that structure will be an independent funding source for the UN as well as a system to transfer America’s wealth into the hands of the elites and the governments of other countries.
Sending a massive amount of money overseas will increase America’s debt, further weaken the dollar, cause inflation and stifle any hope of a recovery; the perfect recipe to collapse our economy so that George Soros and the elites can usher in their new global structure, eliminate the dollar as the global currency and transition to a new global currency.

To those who say an American President would never do something like this to our country, read on… the process of taking America’s wealth and “spreading it around” globally is already well underway. Here are some financial facts relating to TARP and just a few of Obama’s 2011 overseas budget expenditures.
TARP: Out of the $750 billion TARP, our federal government spent $350 billion in taxpayer funds to save 35 foreign banks.

A few of Obama’s 2011 budget items… or should we say “gifts” to the globalists, courtesy of American taxpayers, in order to collapse our economy:
* $63 billion – US Global Health Initiative.
* $54.1 billion – USAID to other countries for FY 2011 – President Obama already sent $173.5 billion for international/foreign assistance ($90.6 billion in 2010 – a 60% increase compared to FY2008; $82.9 billion in 2009 – a 47% increase compared toFY2008).
* $30 billion – of the $100 billion per year for UN Climate Change Policy; the UN admitted global warming is about wealth redistribution, not climate change policy.
* $8 billion – US pays to IMF for Greece Bailout.
* $2 billion – to Brazil for OFFSHORE OIL DRILLING!!!!
* $1.9 billion – International Agriculture Programs.
* $1 billion – to Mexico so that they can drill in the Gulf (while Obama caused 23,000 Americans to lose their job because of his ban on US drilling in the Gulf).
* $665.7 million – International Family Planning & Reproductive Health Programs.
* $147.3 million – US pays Brazil each year in cotton subsidies to keep its mouth shut.
* $5.96 million – U.S. Ambassadors Fund for Cultural Preservation 2010 Awards (i.e. mosque restoration overseas). NOTE: Section 205.1(d) of title 22 of the Code of Federal Regulations prohibits USAID funds from being used for the rehabilitation of structures to the extent that those structures are used for “inherently religious activities.”

The above list alone represents $510.82 billion… over half a trillion dollars. Keep this in mind when President Obama and Congress tell us they’ll be able to cut $300 billion from Medicare – a program that all of us pay into and have paid into our entire working life – or when the President proposes a tax increase to take more of America’s wealth to “spread it around” to the UN/global elites in order to weaken America and ensure an economic collapse.

Part 2 will explore the UN Global Compact to de-industrialize America.

For the record, I don’t believe Obama was born in Kenya. And if WND is trying to convince me that middleclass white atheists like giving birth in foreign mud huts, good luck. Some are too posh to push in first-world hospitals!
That said it’s rich of the media to rail against conspiracy theories now (especially when they were creating and/or disseminating conspiracy theories throughout the Bush years with a psychotic vengeance). Journalists have no moral authority – no authority to sniff, no authority to preach, no authority to rewrite history.
Yes, puzzlingly, playing birth certificate politics is acceptable when the player is trying to defeat a member of the Bush family.

Take the 1978 Republican primary in Texas’s 19th congressional district. Or as George W. Bush writes in Decision Points (page 39): “Four days before the election, Reese produced a copy of my birth certificate to prove I had been born back east. How was I supposed to counter that? I responded with a line Dad had once used: ‘No, I wasn’t born in Texas, because I wanted to be close to my mother that day.’”
Alas, the media couldn’t fake tears for Bush.
John McCain
Also flushed down the media’s memory drain is case 2: The Case of John McCain.
Under the mischief-making headline, “McCain’s Canal Zone Birth Prompts Queries About Whether That Rules Him Out” ace investigator Carl Hulse, raised the natural born-citizen question.

For the New York Times scribe, the issue couldn’t be swept under the carpet. Indeed, the “question has nagged at the parents of Americans born outside the continental United States for generations” claimed Hulse, without poll evidence.

Raza studies make assimilation impossible (w/shocking video)

Raza studies make assimilation impossible (w/shocking video)

Examiner. ^ | April 13th, 2011 | Dave Gibson

Posted on Wednesday, April 13, 2011 7:02:27 PM by moonshinner_09

A large percentage of students enrolled in the Tucson Unified School District (TUSD), just as in much of Arizona’s public school systems are the children of immigrants, both legal and illegal. One of the courses those children are being taught is so-called Raza studies or Mexican-American studies.
Raza studies (race studies) have been taught in the TUSD for about a dozen years.
One of the textbooks they use is titled “Occupied America,” which was written by Rodolfo Acuña and includes a speech given by activist and university professor Jose Angel Gutierrez in which he says: “We have got to eliminate the gringo, and what I mean by that is if the worst comes to the worst, we have got to kill him,” (pg. 323).
The book also talks about the need for Mexico to re-take seven states in the Southwestern United States.

The following rather shocking quotes are taken directly from Occupied America (pg. 167):
“Supporters would execute all white males over age 16,” (also known as the Plan of San Diego).
“The Southwest would become a Chicano nation.”
In addition to using taxpayer funds to enforce such polarizing beliefs in Latino children in traditional public schools, the organization known as La Raza operates 100 charter schools across the country. The following is a list of a few of those schools:-La Academia Semillas del Pueblo (Los Angeles) -Atzlan Academy (Tucson, AZ) -Mexicayotl Academy (Nogales, AZ) -The Dolores Huerta Prepatory High School (Pueblo, CO) -Academia Cesar Chavez Charter School (St. Paul, MN)

In 2005 alone, $7.9 million in taxpayer funding was given out to these charter schools in the form of U.S. Department of Education grants. These schools stress Latino culture, the Spanish language, the re-conquest of the American Southwest, the establishment of the mythical Atzlan, and even Aztec math.

JOSEPH FARAH'S G2 BULLETIN ^ | August 04, 2003

Posted on Wednesday, April 13, 2011 7:01:25 PM by robowombat

Author sees Islam's 20-year plan for U.S. Arab-American author outlines secret
A refugee from the Muslim Middle East thinks he has discovered Islam's 20-point plan for conquering the United States by 2020 – a plan revealed in the latest issue of Joseph Farah's G2 Bulletin. Anis Shorrosh, author of ''Islam Revealed'' and ''The True Furqan,'' is a Christian Arab-American who emigrated from Arab-controlled Jerusalem in January 1967.
''The following is my analysis of Islamic invasion of America, the agenda of Islamists and visible methods to take over America by the year 2020,'' Shorrosh says. ''Will Americans continue to sleep through this invasion as they did when we were attacked on 9/11?''
1. Terminate America's freedom of speech by replacing it with statewide and nationwide hate-crime bills.
2. Wage a war of words using black leaders like Louis Farrakhan, Rev. Jesse Jackson and other visible religious personalities who promote Islam as the religion of African-Americans while insisting Christianity is for whites only. What they fail to tell African-Americans is that it was Arab Muslims who captured them and sold them as slaves. In fact, the Arabic word for black and slave is the same, ''Abed.''
3. Engage the American public in dialogues, discussions, debates in colleges, universities, public libraries, radio, TV, churches and mosques on the virtues of Islam. Proclaim how it is historically another religion like Judaism and Christianity with the same monotheistic faith.
4. Nominate Muslim sympathizers to political office to bring about favorable legislation toward Islam and support potential sympathizers by block voting.
5. Take control of as much of Hollywood, the press, TV, radio and the Internet as possible by buying the related corporations or a controlling stock.

The big scissors of destiny are clicking and clacking their way to our national credit card. If we don't raise the debt limit, so we can borrow more money to pay the interest on the money we borrowed before, the scissors will come down like economic armageddon. And the big shiny credit card that pays for everything gets cut up in two pieces. But never fear. If worst comes to worst, then we still have options.
Our government is big. Really big. So big that the 2.15 million government employees should be their own state. The population of government employees is already larger than the populations of Rhode Island, Wyoming, Delaware, Alaska, Montana, North and South Dakota, New Hampshire, Maine, Hawaii, Idaho, West Virginia, Nebraska and New Mexico. So big that if government employees formed their own state, it would be the 36th largest state in the union. So why not go for it?

Radio host Rush Limbaugh is ridiculing President Obama's plan to cut the deficit by $4 trillion within 12 years through spending cuts and tax increases on the wealthy, saying the president's method of redistributing income has already been tested numerous times without success.


Rush Limbaugh
"The Obama way has been tried," Limbaugh said today as he analyzed Obama's speech at George Washington University. "For as long as there have been human beings who used to be monkeys walking the Earth, it's been tried, and it has never worked. That was my concession to the Darwinists in the audience. But it doesn't work."


He cited communist systems around the world as evidence.
"It's been tried in Cuba. Is there anything great down there? Tried in the Soviet Union, Russia. Anything great over there? Chicoms (Chinese Communists). The greatness that's occurring in the Chicom circumstance happens to be to the extent that they are going capitalist in order to have any kind of a growing economy."

Obama is looking to roll back President Bush's tax cuts for the wealthy, so households making more than $250,000 would experience a tax hike.
Both Republicans and Democrats had previously agreed to continue the Bush tax cuts for two years, but Obama said today, "I refuse to renew them again."
"We cannot afford $1 trillion worth of tax cuts for every millionaire and billionaire in our society," Obama said. "The most fortunate among us can afford to pay a little more. I don't need another tax cut."

Newly-installed Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus has a message for Donald Trump and other so-called "birthers": Shut up!
Priebus, who's starting to score some fundraising and organizational victories inside GOP HQ, having taken over for controversial former Chairman Michael Steele, says the debate over President Obama's birthplace and whether he can be president is a huge distraction away from the party's effort to fight Democratic spending and tax plans.
In an interview, we asked if he, like Trump, is a birther. "I'm not," says Priebus. "I believe that the president was born in Hawaii." [Read 10 things you didn't know about Reince Priebus.]

SNIP
"I think that the entire issue gets me off track to what I really need to focus on which is how to beat him [Obama]," says Priebus. "And the reason I need to beat him is not because I'm the chairman of the RNC, or because I view this as some partisan endeavor that I'm on. I'm truly concerned about the future direction of our country. I'm very concerned about America. I'm concerned about the idea of America," says Priebus. "Look," he adds of Obama. "He's driving our country off a fiscal cliff, that's what he's doing."

Over the last few months, the Federal Reserve has purchased billions of Treasuries in an attempt to lower borrowing rates to alleviate unemployment and avert deflation. That was the plan.
Not all is well with the plan or its execution. As data points line up, one may even be excused for asking out loud if the Federal Reserve is actively engaged in destroying the middle class here and everywhere else on our planet. From what we see, they are driving our fiscal clown car off a cliff.
The recently released BLS import and export report simply confirms what many of already knew was happening or was going to happen. Prices everywhere on nearly everything of substance are going up dramatically. In terms of worldwide economic significance, introducing major price ramps into the supply chain of basic goods and services during an economic slowdown is a very bad idea but is also a sign of the times.
The 04-12-11 BLS News release: U.S. IMPORT AND EXPORT PRICE INDEXES -MARCH 2011 is chock full of evidence showing how an eroding dollar and rocketing commodities are affecting everything we purchase and import and what we sell overseas to our trading partners.

These increases in the basic inputs into the world wide economy are truly staggering. I have provided an excerpt below:
Fuel Imports: The price index for import fuel jumped 9.0 percent in March, the largest monthly rise since a 16.0 percent advance in June 2009. Fuel prices increased 28.7 percent for the year ended in March, driven by a 36.6 percent advance over the past six months.

Sen. Mike Lee Says He'll Vote Against Budget Bill

Newsmax ^ | 13 Apr 2011 | Jim Meyers and Kathleen Walter

Posted on Wednesday, April 13, 2011 5:45:29 PM by Qbert

Freshman Sen. Mike Lee tells Newsmax that he will vote against passage of the federal spending bill agreed to last week because the cuts being discussed are “absolutely miniscule” compared to the overall fiscal problems.
The Utah Republican also says he will oppose raising the ceiling on federal debt and “use every tool at my disposal” to see that it won’t be raised.
[Snip]
“I intend to vote no, because I think it’s not nearly enough,” he responds.
“And more importantly it’s not accompanied by any kind of structural reform mechanism designed to change the way we spend money, and so the problem is going to continue to exist.
[Snip]
Lee recently said he would back away from threats to filibuster attempts at raising the debt ceiling if progress is made toward a balanced budget amendment.
Discussing the vote to raise the debt ceiling, Lee says: “I know that I’m going to vote no. I know that I’m going to use every tool at my disposal to try to interfere with any efforts to raise the debt ceiling.
“I think anything that is offered in exchange for the agreement to raise the debt ceiling is going to have to be very very significant.
“It would have to be in my mind something that changes the way we spend money, so that we are not spending money constantly that we don’t have, so that we’re not racking up a huge bill that we will then send our grandchildren.

“In my mind the only thing that could do that is a balanced budget amendment. It’s the only way we can guarantee that Congress will be put into kind of an economic straightjacket where it can’t continue to harm itself.”

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: "On Feb. 4, 2010, when the House of Representatives voted to increase the legal limit on the national debt by another $1.9 trillion (lifting the limit from $12.394 trillion to $14.294 trillion), not one Republican voted for the increase."
It's amazing how this tracks. It's like I just said: If you go back to 2006, not one Democrat voted to raise the debt limit in 2006. Republicans ran the show then. One year ago, not one Republican voted to raise the debt ceiling when they didn't run the show, of course. Just a year ago, one year, the debt ceiling has gone up by $2 trillion. Now, "Then-Minority Whip Eric Cantor (R.-Va.) rose on the House floor that day and declared that it was 'beyond comprehension' and 'a travesty' to talk about raising the legal debt limit to $14.294 trillion.
"Last week, the Republican House leadership agreed to a deal with President Barack Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D.-Nev.) to spend $3.7555 trillion in this fiscal year--even though at the close of business Friday, as the deal was being struck, the Treasury reported that it could borrow only an additional $80.85 billion before hitting the $14.294-trillion debt limit Congress set last year." So the debt ceiling increase of last year, we're bumping up agin' it now -- against it. We need to raise it again.

ON THIS ABORTED FETUS, THE DEMOCRATS PLANT THEIR FLAG
Wednesday, April 13, 2011 12:00:00 AM


Back in February, Obama's director of the Office of Management and Budget, Jacob Lew, promoted the White House's allegedly draconian budget cuts in The New York Times.

Saying Obama was going to cut the 2012 budget to the bone, Lew droned on about the "difficult" cuts to "important" programs and the "many tough choices and deep cuts" in the proposed budget.

All told, the White House's brutal, Depression-era austerity plan would have snipped a couple of billion from our multi-trillion dollar federal budget.

When the Republicans proposed that, instead of cutting a few billion, the government chop $60 billion from the budget, Democrats went ballistic. They said it was madness. Republicans were proposing to bring back the miserly federal budget of 2008!

You heard me right: Those lunatics were going to roll back the federal spending clock ... almost three years!

You remember the hellish, "Lord of the Flies" days of 2008 when veterans hospitals were shuttered, Social Security checks ceased to be delivered, our military was stripped of ammunition, national parks were closed and stoplights went dark.

Wait, no -- none of that happened.

(Apr. 13, 2011) —

Despite monumental efforts to keep Obama’s entire past completely under wraps, questions persist over who and what Barack Hussein Obama really is and how a half-term senate political neophyte with a totally blank resume managed to defeat the Clinton machine to become the most secretive president in U.S. history. Is it a side show, or the main event?
Because Obama has refused to release his official vault birth certificate, college, passport records or family history including all medical records, and because he and those covering for him insist that there is ‘nothing to see here’ – many Americans are increasingly interested in how Obama was able to happen to America.
His many overt anti-American and anti-constitution policies have driven speculation that not only is he not a natural born citizen eligible for the office he holds, he may not even be American at all.
Business mogul Donald Trump appears ready to run for office on the search for a real Obama birther certificate. Not a COLB, but a real authentic birth certificate that looks just like every other American birth certificate.

The press is largely responsible for the ongoing circus, as they have been completely uninterested in the matter for almost three years now. Never before in history has the press taken so little sincere journalistic interest in what could be the greatest scam ever perpetrated on American voters.

Dear GOP Trust Supporter:
Congressman Michele Bachmann and Congressman Steve King are standing up against Obama and the political establishment- we must send help!!!! THERE IS A CRITICAL VOTE TO RAISE THE DEBT CEILING COMING UP IN CONGRESS – THIS WILL BE OUR ONLY CHANCE TO SERIOUSLY DEFUND OBAMACARE AND THE OTHER OUTRAGEOUS SOCIALIST PROGRAMS. The only way we can take our country back and get spending under control is to STOP Congress from raising the DEBT CEILING - GO HERE NOW TO STOP THE SPENDING.

Our Award winning ad team is working on the message right now that will call attention to this matter and increase the chance that we can stop Congress from raising the debt ceiling! If we can air this ad nationwide we can have a significant impact but we need your help.
One of the reasons Obama wants this so badly is that he will borrow more money to pay off his friends who will help him get re-elected next year!
Obama is trying to SCARE Americans into believing that we must increase the debt ceiling or some financial crisis will ensue. THE TRUTH IS THAT IF WE ALLOW CONGRESS TO GIVE OBAMA WHAT HE WANTS HE WILL SPEND THAT TRILLION DOLLARS IN THE NEXT SIX MONTHS AND WILL CAUSE THE FINANCIAL CALAMITY HE CLAIMS HE IS TRYING TO PREVENT!

We can stop it if we can reach the American people with the right information. Our campaign will do it! AND YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE! GO HERE NOW TO STOP OBAMA FROM TAKING OVER OUR ENTIRE ECONOMY!

The term "birther" was coined by those wanting to end questions, free-and-open inquiries and rational debates over whether Barack Obama had satisfied constitutional requirements for eligibility as president.
Since there is no dictionary definition to this term, it has been used as a term of derision and dismissal. Often you will see "news stories" defining "birthers" as people who hold fast to the notion that Obama was foreign-born. Actually, most skeptics about Obama's eligibility simply want to see evidence to support the contention that he is actually a "natural born citizen," as required by the Constitution.

The historic understanding of that concept is simply this: To become president of the United States one needs to be born in the U.S. to citizen parents with no divided loyalties. Obama tells us that he was born in Hawaii to a Kenyan citizen and a mother too young to confer ordinary citizenship upon him – a status that would have made him, at best, a dual citizen at birth and, possibly, a non-U.S. citizen. Further complicating the problem, there is no proof he was actually born in Hawaii.

Obama and the Natural Born Citizen Clause

Obama and the Natural Born Citizen Clause

American Thinker ^ | Randall Hoven

Posted on Wednesday, April 13, 2011 2:07:01 PM by ventanax5

On Monday, the Supreme Court decided not to hear the Donofrio case concerning whether Barack Obama is a natural born citizen and therefore qualified to be President. Also, David Horowitz diagnosed those who claim Obama is not natural born as being afflicted with "Obama Derangement Syndrome." Horowitz told people to "shut up about the birth certificate."
A bad day for those of us in tin-foil hats. Even Michelle Malkin is against us .
Mr. Horowitz whizzes right by the issue of whether or not Obama is Constitutionally qualified. He simply says it doesn't matter. He asked,
"What difference does it make to the future of this country whether Obama was born on U.S. soil?"

When the US Constitution is clear on a matter, we are not supposed to re-think "what difference does it make to the future of this country." If we do this re-thinking at every step, we would not need a Constitution; we would merely cogitate on how proposal X will affect our future. In short, no need for a Constitution.

On Thursday, April 14, 2011, 7:45 -- 10:00 AM a group of Tea Party and Pro-life Activists will gather at the Cannon House Building (at 1st and C Southeast, near Metro Stop) to hand out "Report Cards" regarding Boehner and the GOP controlled House. (Expect Much Comedy.)
The Demonstration will be led by Ohio Resident David Lewis and DC resident Missy Smith. Mrs. Smith recently made headlines when she ran against Eleanor Holmes Norton in DC, showing aborted babies in 255 TV ads. Mr. Lewis was recently arrested at Speaker Boehner's office in a demonstration regarding the funding of Planned Parenthood, and recently held press conferences and demonstrations in Ohio and Indiana, calling for Tea Party activists to find a GOP candidate to run in a primary against John Boehner.
Participants will have bullhorns and signs to challenge and chide GOP House staffers that have worked to derail most of the Tea Party and Pro-life agenda.
Signs highlighting some of the "grades" will read:......................................

Having been there himself on occasion, Oliver North, former U. S. Marine Corps Lt. Colonel, sees Barack Obama in “serious trouble.”  The good colonel, never shy with comments on current events or, I might add, bravery in military or political actions, says in an online column for Townhall.com. “Laureates and Leaders” on March 25, 2011, “Nobel laureate Barack Obama, fresh from his Latin American spring break, is in serious trouble. Globalists and Utopians who once lauded his constant contrition now want POTUS to return his Peace Prize.”

That is just blatant misinformation, and Mark needs to be called on it.

(Apr. 13, 2011) — On April 12, 2011, bloviator and faux commentator Bill O’Reilly referred to “internet spin” and the importance of honesty in regard to reporting on Barack Hussein Obama, then proceeded to lie about the law in the state of Hawaii which governs the availability of records.

O’Reilly has tried to marginalize Donald Trump, along with fellow Fox News show host Glenn Beck, on the issue of Obama’s original, long-form birth certificate. O’Reilly claimed that Trump’s reason for speaking out was that he “wanted attention.” Beck and O’Reilly then discussed whether or not they “could vote” for Trump, and Beck stated that Trump is making him “uncomfortable” and stated that the document Trump released is “worse than Obama’s.”
How could that be true? At least it 
had a seal and two signatures. Nothing Obama has released contains that.

A foot of snow couldn’t keep Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Jennifer Hudson and other celebrities away from a star-studded celebration of civil-rights-era music, hosted by President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama at the White House in February 2010.
Dylan’s haunting rendition of “The Times They Are a-Changin’” was a highlight of the dazzling evening. The digitally friendly White House even posted the video of his performance on its website.
But you won’t find Dylan (or Robert Zimmerman, his birth name) listed in the White House visitor logs — the official record of who comes to call at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., which is maintained by the Secret Service.

Look at what Donald Trump has caused. Feeling the heat of the resurgence of interest in the possibility that he is ineligible while in office, the president is waging a two-prong attack. First he, MSM and the ruling political class (Democrats and Republicans) are going to discredit and shut-up Donald Trump.

Look for it. In the next couple of weeks, Trump will be effectively dealt with much like Ann Coutler was spayed and Glen Beck was neutered regarding the Birth Certificate subject. Likewise Mr. Trump will be afraid to even so much as mention the subject ever again and if he does it will only be to nod compliantly when asked if he thinks that Barry Hussein Soetoro is a legitimate president . And like Coulter and Beck (who must devour their own young )the Donald will attack anyone who legitimately asks for proof of Soetoro eligibility.

April 12, 2011

A federal lawsuit claims a Branch County tea party group was denied the right to display banners and signs at a tea party rally at a public park in Coldwater because it was “too political” and “too controversial.” The Coldwater City Council then passed a resolution banning all banners and signs in that park.
The Thomas More Law Center law firm filed its lawsuit last week in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Michigan. Attorney Robert Muise of the Thomas More Law Center alleged that Coldwater City Manager Jeff Budd objected because the Common Sense Patriots of Branch County were “too political” and “too controversial.”

Budd didn’t respond to an email seeking comment. Heather Peet was the only person of the nine-member City Council to respond to an email seeking comment. She referred questions to John Hutchinson, the city’s legal counsel. Hutchinson didn’t respond to a phone message left at his law office or an email.
In a Nov. 2 memo to the City Council, Budd stated the “administrative headaches” of increased requests to have banners in the park led the city to either “allow all banners or no banners.”

Why was Obama exempt from even the most rudimentary examination of his credentials for office? And why are these same people denying that the Constitution has been violated? And why are they trying to bury the issue and denouncing anyone who speaks of it?
Have they all decided that the term natural born citizen no longer applies as a prerequisite for the Presidency? If so, what are the new criteria for eligibility?
The American people are waiting for the truth, not just the usual displays of elitist arrogance or feigned ignorance. There is clearly a conspiracy of silence. Is there also ethical or criminal liability?

It is no accident that Donald Trump has catapulted in the polls. The American people are rewarding him for having the courage to ask a question that is considered heresy by the ruling class. And how do these effete elites respond? With cries of racism and lunacy, the last resort of scoundrels.

Barack Obama
A new Zogby International poll shows even the left is drifting away from Barack Obama's side.
His re-election numbers are the lowest of his presidency so far – at 38 percent.
And only 35 percent of independents, whose support will be crucial for his re-election, would vote to re-elect him if the election were held today.
The poll also shows 55 percent of those surveyed say they want someone new at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Of those surveyed, 17 percent of Democrats want to see a change, as do 55 percent of independents and 94 percent of Republicans.
Be the first to get the new eligibility book signed by Jerome Corsi and help get TV commercials on the air to bust this issue wide open!
Pollster John Zogby told WND the numbers are among the lowest for a first-term president in recent memory. The poll reflects anger with Obama over his perceived mishandling of the intervention in Libya, the economy and the looming possibility of inflation, among other issues.
"This is a low number … for any president, for any incumbent," Zogby said. "There's a sense of disappointment from the left and the center; the right has always solidly been opposed to the president.
"Voters are not big fans of the federal government these days anyways and government, period, and the people are disappointed with Obama simply because he's the president."

The darkest hour is just before dawn. A huge swath of this planet, from the Straits of Gibraltar to the Philippine Sea, has been held in a synthetic,forced nightfall for nearly fourteen centuries. But the sunrise is coming, it is coming sooner rather than later, and this light will be the life of men.
Everywhere in the western world, people look at the savage violence that is a daily occurrence in the Muslim world and shake their heads in stunned disbelief. A pastor of a very small Christian flock in Florida burns a Koran. Weeks later at literally the global antipode, Muslim imams drive through neighborhoods in a vehicle with loudspeakers attached, calling the townsfolk to riot. The townsfolk respond, and before it is all over, at least 22 innocent people are dead at the hands of these townsfolk, with at least two of them beheaded. How is this possible? How can this be? How can human behavior and culture be so monstrously different? Is this difference attributable to nothing more than environmental nurture theory?

No. There is something else. There is a catalyst -- absent in every other culture on earth -- that has poisoned the cultural soil, thus yielding the fruit of bad harvest for nearly 1,400 years. That catalyst is inbreeding. As a direct result, the Muslim population is mentally developmentally disabled on a mass scale.
All human cultures display strict prohibitions against inbreeding and consanguineous marriage. Incest is a universal taboo.

This is a transcendent anthropological fact. As a Roman Catholic, I attribute this to what is called "The Natural Law." Every human person without exception is created by God with a deep, innate knowledge of good and evil, right and wrong. Stabbing someone in the neck for no reason whatsoever is just as wrong here
