Posts Tagged ‘Barack Obama’

Just to follow up on my last post.  I think people need to understand what the Weather Underground was and who these people are that helped to launch Barack Obama’s political career.

Back in 2005, I wrote a paper on the Weather Underground for a class I was taking.  I thought it appropriate to share that at this point.  So, if you look up at the top of the page, you’ll see a new tab called The Weather Underground, and that’s where you can find it.  Please know, that although only two sources are cited in the paper, many more were used as part of my research.  You can also get to the paper by clicking here.

In the last couple of days, the news has come out that the President has released a list of some private citizens who have donated to Mitt Romney’s campaign.  According to the Wall Street Journal article, these donors were demonized and made to sound criminal, though they have committed no crimes.  The idea is to make Mitt Romney look bad by making those who contribute to him look bad.

President Obama isn’t the first president to use this tactic.  Richard Nixon did it too.  However, after the outrage the American people expressed at such techniques, those who followed Nixon chose not to do the same.  Until now.

Look, I can’t really fault President Obama for looking at those who donate and support Mitt Romney.  I don’t think the actions of these donors are anything bad, and neither do many Republicans.  But, I do believe it is a fair and reasonable thing to do to look at the people supporting a candidate.  So that begs the question:  Who is looking into Obama’s donors and supporters??

If we follow the President’s reasoning, we could certainly tell a lot about Barack Obama by those who support him and donate to his campaign.  Now, the mainstream media didn’t do this in 2008, and likely won’t do it this year either.  And because they weren’t willing to vet Obama, we ended up with someone in the White House who works to lead the United States into a socialist country, and calls the Constitution a “charter of negative liberties.”  Because they weren’t willing to vet Obama, we have someone in the White House who has contempt toward those who are financially successful (never mind his millions).  Because they weren’t willing to vet Obama, we have someone in the White House who believes capitalism and free market principles are evil.  Since the mainstream media, which the majority of Americans watch and listen to and believe, will not do the job they should, the rest of us have to.

So, let’s take a look at some of those who support Obama and contribute to his campaign.  If we are to judge Romney by that, let’s do the same for Obama.

Here are some of his supporters, in no particular order.

     
Bill Ayers and his wife Bernardine Dohrn:  Married, college    professors, and once leaders of the domestic terrorist group The Weather Underground.  They were responsible for many bombings in the 1960’s and 1970’s, including a New York City police station and the US Capitol Building.  In an article that appeared, ironically, on September 11, 2001, in the New York Times, Bill Ayers, stated:  “I don’t regret setting bombs, I feel we didn’t do enough.”  REALLY?!  The Weather Underground did some absolutely awful things.  Too many to list here.  Look them up, then ask yourself if the President of the United States should have these people in his close circle.  (Oh, did I      mention, Obama began his political career IN THE HOME OF AYERS AND DOHRN?) The Weather Underground was also part of Students for a Democratic Society.  Look them up too.  No good.

     Jeremiah Wright:  Reverend, Pastor Emeritus at Trinity United Church – the church the Obama’s attended for over 20 years, anti-American, anti-Semite.  The man who married the Obama’s and baptized their two daughters, Reverend Wright has not been shy with his hateful remarks (this is just one, out of many examples).   One must ask themselves why it is that our President attended this man’s church for 20 years and how he could sit for 20 years in the pews and not come away with some of the same beliefs espoused by the Reverend Wright?  Look it up, see what he’s said, then ask yourself if the President of the United States should be associating with someone like that.

Louis Farrakhan:  Leader of the Nation of Islam, anti-American, anti-Semitic.  He has consistently been hateful toward Israel and Jewish people and the United States.  This is not the kind of person the President of the United States should be associating himself with.  Look him up too, and ask yourself why Barack Obama would be associating with this man.

Raul Castro:  Brother of Fidel Castro and leader of Communist Cuba.  Don’t you feel better knowing a Communist dictator supports having Barack Obama for our President?

Daniel Ortega:  President of Nicaragua, devout Marxist.  Yet another winner of a leader supporting our President.  Makes you wonder why Communists and Marxists would be supporting him, doesn’t it?

Sean Penn:  Hollywood actor, outspoken activist and Socialist.  Sean Penn has made clear where he sits on the political spectrum and it is so very far to the left.  He has played buddy buddy with Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez (also a communist) and former Cuban dictator Fidel Castro (also a communist).  He spouts hateful anti-American rhetoric, yet stays loyal to President Obama.  What is going on there?

Other groups supporting President Obama:  Socialist Party USA, Communist Party Illinois (among others), the New Black Panther Party (a very violent group), and Hamas (an Islamic terrorist group).

These are just some of his supporters.  I haven’t even begun on who actually works in the White House under this President.

I think it is time the country woke up and saw President Obama for what he really is.  You really need to ask yourself why are these anti-American people supporting Barack Obama?  What do they know about him and why would they want him to be in control of the White House?  Educate yourself.  Don’t just follow blindly what the media tells you about Obama.

President Obama wants to look at Mitt Romney’s supporters, that’s just fine with me.  But I will surely do the same with President Obama’s.

In watching recent events, I’ve come to believe more and more that this country is rapidly sliding towards Socialism, Marxism, and eventually Communism.  Extreme?  No, I truly don’t believe so.  The liberties and freedoms that have been taken from us are growing, and more and more are at risk.  So many people can’t see what is right before their eyes.  How quickly people will willingly give up their freedoms in the name of safety or entitlement or countless other excuses.  But what it really comes down to is the government controlling more and more aspects of our daily lives and our freedoms falling by the wayside.  For those who might say that this is just because I don’t like Barack Obama, think again.  This is not an Obama thing, (more…)

It’s been a while since I’ve posted, and that’s for a couple reasons.  The first, I’ve been really super busy.  Second, sometimes words seem inadequate to express my thoughts on certain things, generally politically.  But, there are just way too many things going on that I’d like to comment on, so I’m going to touch on them today. 

First, what seems to have become a big story:  Sarah Palin vs. David Letterman.  I find it ridiculous that Letterman would joke about a 14year old (and yes, it was the 14 year old daughter not the 19 year old) girl being sexually assaulted.  I find it ridiculous that Letterman would joke and call Gov. Palin “slutty.”  On this, I have two questions.  1.  What would have been the repercussions if a conservative comedian made those kind of jokes about liberals, say Hillary and Chelsea Clinton, or the Obamas?  There would have been extreme outrage.  (And let me just say the jokes were distasteful, and I would think the same regardless of who the jokes were about.)  However, because the jokes were about conservative Governor Sarah Palin and her family, there are just excuses being made, none of which I buy, by the way.  It is absurd the extreme double standard that exists in mainstream media.  Of course that is nothing new, but it’s still irritating.  2.  What would Dave say if someone made jokes like that about his child or wife?

Second, the elections in Iran.  Initially, I favored the defeat of Ahmadinejad because I thought the contender, Mousavi, would be better on international issues.  However, I don’t think there would be much difference between the two as far a international policy.  However, I still think Mousavi would be great for the country because he supports more freedoms for the people of Iran, and he has a great deal of support from the citizens in Iran.  And, personally, I think any steps toward freedom are good, and in a country like that, they will be small steps.  Now, this morning, it’s coming out that Ahmadinejad has been declared the winner of the election.  The results are highly contested and controversial.  This was supposed to be a very close race, and it seems astounding that he would loose by such a huge margin, let alone in his own home town.  People have taken to the streets in protest, and frankly, that’s a great thing to see in a country so tightly ruled.  The Interior Ministry of the country has blocked communications, including text messaging, and pulled newspapers from the stands.  So, we actually know more here, than the people in Iran do.  Something is foul about all this, to be sure. 

What next?  Ah, yes, North Korea.  First of all, I think we can all agree that Kim Jong-Il is completely crazy.  The idea of this guy being in charge of weapons (more…)

I recently got an e-mail from the American Issues Project about this ad, and finally checked it out.  Wow.  It’s very eye opening. 

What do you think?

Those around me know that I am deeply opposed to this stimulus plan that Obama wants passed.  One must ask why he feels the need to bankrupt the country even more?  And why send us even further down the Socialist and Marxist path?  The answer is easy – power.  When you make people dependent on the government, the government has absolute power in their lives.  Scary.  The man that said he was going to bring change and hope to the country is doing just that, but it’s the wrong kind.  As for change, all he’s done is change back to Clinton, FDR era, and Soviet politics.  I think even FDR would say he’s too far left.  Obama is going far beyond trying to help this country; he’s trying to take it in a completely socialist direction.  I don’t know about you, but his plans look more and more like old school Soviet tactics.  Not something I’m looking forward to.  It’s change alright, but not the kind I want any part of!  Now, let’s talk about hope.  The only hope Obama has inspired in me is hope that things won’t be as bad as they appear to be.  I have hope that I’ll still be able to have a say in my children’s upbringing when he is finished.  I have hope that I’ll still be able to own my home and be able to strive for success.  And, I have hope that Conservatism will make a comeback (after all, we had to have Carter to get Reagan). 

So, I was reading a very interesting article over at Ask Heritage (part of The Heritage Foundation), about this stimulus.  It is amazing how truly bad this plan is!  Thank goodness for the House Republicans and 11 Democrats who voted against it (in a truly bi-partisan vote)!  I only have hope that the Senate Republicans will have the same brains and courage to stand up for not only Conservative values, but what is right.  Anyway, check out this article and the real costs of this so-called stimulus package.  By the way, they are just going to call any spending and tax increases “stimulus” so that the vast majority of drive-by media watching Americans will think it is a good thing.  So check out this graphic.  Not the kind of spending I’m into!

So I was talking to my friend, Troy Fox, today about the situation with the governor of Illinois, Rod Blagojevich.  I think the whole thing is a mess and that surely with Chicago politics being what they are, Barack Obama had to at least have known about it.  And surely, Richard Daley, mayor of Chicago, had to have some involvement.  I mean, really, what goes on in that state that he doesn’t know about before hand?  Anyway, Troy shared with me his idea for Barack Obama’s senate replacement, and I thought it was fabulous!  Here goes: 

Everyone in the Democrat party is turning as fast as they can on Blagojevich.  Now, we’re used to this kind of behavior from the Republicans.  They turn on each other anytime something doesn’t look good.  But, Democrats, they’re so loyal.  But, no this time, and frankly it’s kind of enjoyable to watch them turn on each other.  Anyway, since everyone is turning on him and implicating him in any way they can, he should do the same.  He should hold a press conference, and have the feds waiting outside.  Then, he should announce that to replace Barack Obama, he is appointing the most conservative ultra right-wing republican he can.  (And if it’s a woman it’s even better.)  Then announce that his is resigning his office effective Jan 21, 2009.  After the press conference, he should go out and meet the feds and tell them everything he knows.  Troy’s thought here is that since they are all turning on him, he should do the same to them.  

Personally, I know this would never happen, but think about it for a moment.  How funny would that be?!  Can you imagine Harry Reid’s face?  Oh, I think I would pay to watch this all unfold!  The media would be in a panic.  They would be stumbling over their words.  The Democrat party would cry foul and whine, but there would be nothing they could do about it.  And, with them trying to get the fillibuster proof majority, this would be a big blow to them.  I think it would be pretty fabulous!  HA!!!
