THE "G" WEBLOG @N54 by R.W. "Dick" Gaines: Barack Obama Has Awakened A Sleeping Nation By Gary Hubbell



Barack Obama is the best thing that has happened to America in the last 100 years. Truly, he is the savior of America's future. He is the best thing ever.

Despite the fact that he has some of the lowest approval ratings among recent presidents, history will see Barack Obama as the source of America's resurrection.

Barack Obama has plunged the country into levels of debt that we could not have previously imagined; his efforts to nationalize health care have been met with fierce resistance nationwide; TARP bailouts and stimulus spending have shown little positive effect on the national economy; unemployment is unacceptably high and looks to remain that way for most of a decade; legacy entitlement programs have ballooned to unsustainable levels, and there is a seething anger in the populace.

That's why Barack Obama is such a good thing for America.

Obama is the symbol of a creeping liberalism that has infected our society like a cancer for the last 100 years. Just as Hitler is the face of fascism, Obama will go down in history as the face of unchecked liberalism. The cancer metastasized to the point where it could no longer be ignored.

Michelle Obama talking about her African trip


Judicial Watch has filed a lawsuit over the federal government's refusal to disclose how much taxpayers spent to send Michelle Obama on a "family outing" that included a safari in Africa.


The organization, which investigates and fights government corruption, earlier documented what appears to many to be the extravagant spending by then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Records showed Pelosi cost taxpayers $101,000 for in-flight food and alcohol over a period in 2008 and 2009. At one point she instructed the Air Force to provide chocolate-covered strawberries for a snack, since it was her birthday.


"Dark chocolate preferred" was the order.
Do the tone-deaf lawmakers in D.C. make your blood boil? Read all about Washington and its politics of corruption in "Breach of Trust."
Now Judicial Watch wants to know what taxpayers are spending for Michelle Obama's vacations.
"How much did the American people spend to send the First Lady on a family outing in Africa? That's what we want to know," said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. "On the surface, the trip seems to have been totally unnecessary and was as much an excuse for the Obama family to go on a safari as it was a mission intended to advance the nation's business in Africa."


The organization requested information in June regarding the expenses for the trip. The request included records for the mission taskings for the June 21-27 trip to South Africa and Botswana, the transportation costs and all passenger manifests for the trip.

California’s – “Use Tax” - State to Spy on your Shipping Records..?

California’s – “Use Tax” - State to Spy on your Shipping Records..?:

Using a 1935 law.. some think you may owe the state more money.

If you’ve had something shipped to your home from out of state .. you may owe the state of California more money.

The tax board is talking about collecting the so-called ‘use tax’ for anything that you’ve had delivered to your home from out of state. (They’re looking for new ways to collect taxes.)

Never heard of the ‘Use Tax?” You’re not alone.

They dug deep to get this one - under a 1935 law, Californians would owe a ‘use tax’ on any out-of-state purchases. That’s right a 1935 law.

But to collect the money, the state is considering looking at shipping records to find out what you’ve had shipped to your home. So in theory - your UPS and FedEx records could be used against you – to collect more taxes money for the state. But for now - its just talk..........

The Tea Party’s Constitution, A federalism debate on the right

The Tea Party’s Constitution, A federalism debate on the right:

Campaign events tend not to be the first place to look for nuanced constitutional debate; the Lincoln-Douglas encounters are the exception that proves the rule.

So what are the odds that a thoughtful debate would occur not just between candidates of rival parties, or even rival wings of the same party, but within the Tea Party itself?

Yet that’s just what’s taking place, judging by the latest Republican debate in Ames, Iowa. The candidates there split sharply over questions of federalism and liberty. Interestingly, each side’s vision of the Constitution finds support in the Tea Party’s constitutional rhetoric.

FBI organizes almost all terror plots in the US

FBI organizes almost all terror plots in the US:

The FBI has in recent years used trained informants not just to snitch on suspected terrorists, but to set them up from the get-go. A recent report put together by Mother Jones and the Investigative Reporting Program at the University of California-Berkley analyses some striking statistics about the role of FBI informants in terrorism cases that the Bureau has targeted in the decade since the September 11 attacks.

The report reveals that the FBI regularly infiltrates communities where they suspect terrorist-minded individuals to be engaging with others. Regardless of their intentions, agents are sent in to converse within the community, find suspects that could potentially carry out “lone wolf” attacks and then, more or less, encourage them to do so.

By providing weaponry, funds and a plan, FBI-directed agents will encourage otherwise-unwilling participants to plot out terrorist attacks, only to bust them before any events fully materialize.....................

The Hawaii Defense Foundation’s founding director and president, Christopher Baker, has filed a lawsuit against Honolulu Chief of Police Louis Kealoha, the Honolulu Police Department, the City and County of Honolulu, the State of Hawaii, and Governor Neil Abercrombie in connection with civil rights violations of the Second and Fourteenth Amendments of the United States Constitution.

The complaint filed in the United States District Court for the District of Hawaii by attorneys Richard Holcomb, Alan Beck, and Kevin O’Grady alleges that Hawaii’s license to carry statute and various other firearm regulations are unconstitutional. State law mandates that citizens may be provided licenses to carry only in “exceptional circumstance” or “where a need or urgency has been sufficiently indicated,” all at the discretion of the county’s Chief of Police.

The greatest gun grab in world history is in the midst of debate in the UN and is being pushed by Obama, Holder, Clinton, and all of Obama's Czars. Citizens of the United States, in fact citizens around the world, deserve to know what this treaty, if ratified by the Senate, would mean to Americans. Here is a brief synopsis:

• If ratified by the Senate the treaty would void the Second Amendment to the US Constitution.

• The Treaty would violate the Tenth Amendment transferring and federalizing gun ownership, regulation and licensing nationally.

• Require the establishment of a national data bank (federal) of all gun owners.

• Ban the sale, transportation and trade of all semi-automatic guns that have been in use since the 1890s.

• Confiscate all "UNAUTHORIZED" (a word not defined in the document) civilian firearms.

Wanted: The Reagan Courage

Wanted: The Reagan Courage:

Therein lies the difference between the Establishment's goals and conservatives' goals. The conservatives aren't satisfied by merely defeating Obama. And while it's true that any member of the Republican field would be superior to Obama, better-than-Obama is a very low standard.

For example, the Republican budget negotiations this spring yielded a "better" result than what Obama wanted. The same is true of the deal to raise the debt limit. But neither action made any meaningful change to our country's suicidal financial trajectory.

Just as a modest upgrade to the nation's debt situation was unsuited for the seriousness of the time, so also a modest upgrade in the Oval Office will not be enough to save America from falling by the wayside. The $1.3 trillion deficit, listless economy and pending ObamaCare entitlement change the game. As author Mark Steyn has said, "we're looking at incredibly grim scenarios, not in 2050, 2070 and these other absurd CBO projections...but around 2015, 2017, 2018."

In other words, we've reached a point where -- for those fighting to preserve America as it was founded -- politically safe options are no longer viable. To save America in 2012 will take the same gumption that it took to save America in 1981. We need the Reagan Courage.............

Technology Keeping Internet Freedom Ahead of Censorship by Bob Adelmann

Technology Keeping Internet Freedom Ahead of Censorship by Bob Adelmann:

Efforts by the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) to regulate the Internet may become irrelevant if the new technology being developed succeeds as expected. When the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia ruled against the FCC last December, the FCC rewrote its rules to allow them to regulate the Internet anyway through the whitewash called “net neutrality.” Verizon immediately filed suit to overrule the new attempt, and a House subcommittee in March voted to invalidate the actions of the FCC. But the new rules remain in place until the issue is decided.

All of which may be irrelevant as new technology, called Telex, is being developed as a “work-around” for any such attempts by the FCC. Alex Halderman (pictured above left), an assistant professor of computer science at the University of Michigan, is one of the developers of the software. In a recent interview he explained that people living under Internet censorship are already able to connect to third-party servers outside their country, but that it doesn’t take long for the government to find these servers and block them. Telex, on the other hand, turns the entire Internet into an anti-censorship device. He says:....................

With each passing day that Obama occupies a job for which he is ineligible, exorbitantly marching on until future elections are considered superfluous, our freedoms are diminishing. But then so are theirs, true, and they don’t have the common sense to care, one way or another, because if they did, they’d force the Attorney General, or even one Secret Service agent, to uphold the law and put Obama and his supporters in prison.

O’Reilly says Ron Paul won’t come on his show

O’Reilly says Ron Paul won’t come on his show
Politico ^ | August 25, 2011 | Burgess Everett

Posted on Thursday, August 25, 2011 2:48:24 PM by Baladas


Much has been made of the lack of media coverage surrounding the 2012 bid of Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) despite his second-place showing in the Ames Straw Poll. So Bill O’Reilly wondered Wednesday why Paul won’t come on his show.

“Congressman Ron Paul recently told Megyn Kelly that he’s being ignored by the media. Since Ms. Kelly is part of the media, that was a ... pretty interesting statement,” said the Fox News host. “When we heard it though, we immediately invited Ron Paul on the Factor. We don’t want anyone to be ignored. So far he has not accepted our very kind invitation.”
Later on his show O’Reilly asked Fox News analyst Dick Morris, “Wouldn’t you agree that it’s a three-person race right now?” O’Reilly left out Paul: He was referring to Texas Gov. Rick Perry, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.

Morris said he didn’t want to count anyone out. O’Reilly later turned the subject back to Paul’s alleged snub.

“He’s whining to Megyn, and then we invited him on and he doesn’t show up?” O’Reilly said.
Paul’s campaign chairman Jesse Benton said a schedule conflict prevented an appearance by the candidate on “The O’Reilly Factor.”

"Mr. O'Reilly's producers invited Dr. Paul last week, but we were campaigning in New Hampshire and it did not fit our schedule. Mr. O'Reilly has a wonderful audience and Dr. Paul has appeared on "The O'Reilly Factor" several times over the years. We would be very happy to entertain offers in the future,” Benton wrote in an email to POLITICO.

Light bulbs could be soon used to broadcast wireless Internet, a leading physicist has claimed.

Harald Hass said he has developed a technology which can broadcast data through the same connection as a normal lamp.

By simply turning on the light in the room you could also switch on your Internet connection, he said in a speech.

Other possibilities of the device – which he has dubbed ‘Li-fi’, or Light Fidelity – include sending wireless data from the ‘white space’ in your television spectrum or unused satellite signals.

We Love Freedom! Wait, What's Freedom? by Jeff Berwick

We Love Freedom! Wait, What's Freedom? by Jeff Berwick:

The US Government's agenda to lobotomize the majority of Americans has been an unequivocal success.

Americans now live in one of the world's least free prison camps yet when asked they will tell you they live in the land of the free and, on top of that, they are attacking and occupying countries who did nothing to them because "they hate us for our freedom"!

They've been indoctrinated all of their formative years in mandatory children concentration camps (public schools or private, government regulated schools) and the Government and Federal Reserve has destroyed the economy to the point that it is the rare mother who actually stays home with her kids.

Mom and Dad are both out working because they can't afford not to. And even if they can, the government promotes "women's liberation", which like all government programs, means the opposite of what it is called - and Mom works a full day before returning home exhausted and then giving her kids another few hours of brainwashing via television to complete the full day of programming. They even call it that right to their face...

Gunny G: GUNG HO! According To Evans F. Carlson

GUNG HO! According To Evans F. Carlson:

I have found that many writers, in many publications, writing about Carlson, have made the observation that the words Gung Ho have lost much of their original meaning.

Also, it has been pointed out that the translation of the words themselves from the Chinese produces even more room for confusion, as there may be multiple definitions or interpretations, just as many American words have more that one dictionary meaning. And, too, many have noted that "Gung Ho!" has been "bastardized" to the point that it is now, to many, just a slogan, a battle cry, or just a word denoting a goodMarine Gung Ho was not something simple to understand, even for Carlson and his Raider Marines--it had to be worked on and lived!

In an article titled "The Legacy of Evans Carlson," by Robert J. Dalton (LtCol USMC Ret.) in the August 1987 Marine Corps Gazette, the author states, "...Ironically, the term 'gung ho' has come to mean almost the opposite of how it was originally used. Today, the term has an aggressive, Prussianistic connotation. It has little of the 'ethical'meaning for which it was originally used...."

Well, then, what was the intention of the originator of the now famous term, "Gung Ho?".............

To paraphrase President Dwight Eisenhower, the country is governed by a powerful and coordinated political-media complex, which is determined to maintain the status quo regardless of the wishes of the American people.
Their lust for power is so great and their greed so boundless that Washington, D.C. is willing to accept and protect an illegal and criminal President.
To retain their privileged positions, they are prepared to violate their oaths of office, illegally circumvent the Constitution, erode the rule of law and ignore their constituents.

It is no surprise that 60% of Congress members are not holding town hall meetings during the recess.
A total of 430 current members of the House of Representatives have been canvassed and only 191 of them have scheduled meetings. The results reveal that members of both parties share the blame, with about 59% of Democrats and 50% of Republicans stating they had no town hall meetings scheduled for the recess period.
Congress no longer listens to the America people. It is time to elect representatives that do.

Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla.

MIAMI, Fla. – Some national news media are declaring that U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio is a natural-born citizen and thus eligible for the presidency or vice presidency, even though Rubio's constitutional eligibility remains unclear and the popular Florida Republican has himself downplayed any interest in running on a White House ticket.

In a Daily Caller piece today titled "Coming soon: Rubio 'birthers,'" journalist Matt Lewis warns, "There is already a movement afoot (led by some on the fringe) to disqualify him from serving as president (which would presumably disqualify him from serving as vice president). That's right – some are arguing that Rubio is not eligible because he is not a 'natural-born citizen.'"

How Team Obama undermines and perverts 'the supreme law of the land'

© 2011 WND

Thomas Jefferson warned us about the monster called government.
"In questions of power," he urged, "let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution."
Unfortunately, America's government has long thrown off those constitutional "chains," resulting in its cancerous growth, massive welfare state, ruinous public debt and freedom-destroying intrusions into every area of the lives of its citizens.
And that was before Obama.


Today, the practice of ignoring, distorting and perverting the Constitution has become a high art. It is, in fact, literally the modus operandi of Barack Obama's presidency, as stunningly documented in the September issue of Whistleblower, "THE PLOT TO DESTROY THE CONSTITUTION."



In a relentless campaign to "transform America" from history's most successful constitutional republic into just one more weak European-style entitlement society based on all-powerful central government and massive wealth "redistribution," Obama and his administration have shredded the Constitution in every conceivable manner.


Soon after his inauguration, an early tipoff Obama held the Constitution in low esteem was his choice of "czars." Science czar John Holdren, for instance, is on record saying that in the event of a national emergency, the Constitution would permit compulsory abortions!
And Obama's powerful regulatory czar Cass Sunstein advocates an entirely new bill of rights – even authoring a book, "The Second Bill of Rights: FDR's Unfinished Revolution and Why We Need It More than Ever," in which he advances a disturbingly communist-sounding new set of "rights" for America. These include the government-guaranteed "right" to a job; the "right" to earn enough to provide adequate food, clothing and recreation; the "right" to a decent home, to medical care and to a good education; and many more cradle-to-grave "rights" reminiscent of totalitarian, collectivist societies.

Serve and Protect The dangers of our increasingly militarized police


The front page of last Tuesday's Richmond Times-Dispatch carried a startling photo: Richmond police officers taking a suspect into custody. What was startling was the display of force. The officers, accompanied by a robot and decked out in full riot gear with shield and combat helmets, could have been mistaken for American soldiers on patrol in Iraq. Yet they were going up against a single man—and they were not even sure was armed.

Regrettably, this is not a new development. In recent years police forces across the country have become increasingly militarized.

To a small degree, that trend represents a rational response in an arms race against the criminal element's escalating firepower. But more of it has to do with the lavishing of federal Homeland Security funds on local law-enforcement agencies. Local departments have used the money to buy themselves all kinds of fancy toys—from the Segways bought for the bomb squad in Santa Clara, Calif. several years ago to the Lenco BearCat G3 bought last year by the sheriff's department in Warren County, Va.....................................

U.S. May Back Refinance Plan for Mortgages (Insanity)

U.S. May Back Refinance Plan for Mortgages (Insanity):

A wave of refinancing could be a strong stimulus to the economy, because it would lower consumers’ mortgage bills right away and allow them to spend elsewhere. But such a sweeping change could face opposition from the regulator who oversees Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and from investors in government-backed mortgage bonds.

Administration officials said on Wednesday that they were weighing a range of proposals, including changes to its previous refinancing programs to increase the number of homeowners taking part. They are also working on a home rental program that would try to shore up housing prices by preventing hundreds of thousands of foreclosed homes from flooding the market. That program is further along — the administration requested ideas for execution from the private sector earlier this month.
