Obama’s Agenda If Elected President

This was an interesting post on Yahoo News, it is a biased piece against Barack, but if what is says is true, shines a clear light on the real Obama… The first part is a bit of an over reaction to a campaign propoganda tool, however the the part that goes into his past ideaology is very unnerving.

Campaign ’08: Barack Obama clubs the presidential seal as he announces to the world that anyone who opposes him is a racist. With almost messianic arrogance, he has proclaimed he will save us from ourselves.

When Democratic presidential candidate Obama spoke during a meeting of Democratic governors in Chicago last Friday, a new seal adorned his podium.

It had nothing in common with the presidential seal he could one day stand behind — a seal we are familiar with as a representation of American strength and our desire for peace through strength.

The presidential seal shows an eagle clutching both arrows and an olive branch and the national motto “E pluribus unum” (Out of many, one). It’s a tribute to the American dream, to the American melting pot and to our willingness to defend it.

Obama’s seal, which he has since dropped, was quite different. For some reason, Obama felt the need to dispense with his usual “Change You Can Believe In” sign and create a symbol that was at once eerily similar and disturbingly different.

The top of the seal sported the words “Obama” and “America” in large type as if they were one phrase and the election were not about our future but his. It also had iconography used in the U.S. presidential seal, but Obama’s said “Vero possumus,” rough Latin for “Truly, we are able,” akin to the Obama slogan, ‘Yes, we can.”

Instead of “Seal of the President of the United States,” Obama’s Web site address was listed. And instead of a shield, Obama’s eagle wore his “O” campaign logo with a rising sun representing hope ahead. All military references were gone.

We could dismiss Obama’s seal as a campaign gimmick, but not Obama’s rhetoric before a group of Florida donors in Jacksonville Friday night. “We know what kind of campaign they (the Republicans) are going to run,” he said. “They’re going to make you afraid of me. He’s young and inexperienced and he’s got a funny name. And did I mention he’s black? He’s got a feisty wife.”

Apparently Obama shares the victim mentality — or at least is willing to exploit it. He asks, in essence, how anyone can oppose him and stand in the way of both change and history. And he implies that anyone who does so must be a racist. His words bear a resemblance to the words thundered from the pulpit of his Trinity United Church by the likes of Jeremiah Wright and Michael Pfleger.

A revealing profile in 1995 in the Chicago Reader, a far-left free weekly, tells of how the young Obama fully embraced the black liberation theology espoused by Wright at Trinity and did not accept “the unrealistic politics of integrationist assimilation.”

According to the profile, Obama said he was “tired of seeing the moral fervor of black folks whipped up — at the speaker’s rostrum and from the pulpit — and then allowed to dissipate because there’s no agenda, no concrete program for change.” He has change in mind, all right.

And yes, he does have a feisty wife, one who campaigns for him. As a part of his campaign, she’s fair game. It is Michelle Obama who said that for the first time in her life she was proud of her country, a country she says is “just downright mean.” If she’s going to make those remarks, she and he have to defend them.

While Obama masks the radical agenda of the most liberal member of the U.S. Senate in lofty rhetoric, his wife cuts to the chase. In a speech in California, Michelle Obama said: “Barack Obama will require you to work. He is going to demand that you shed your cynicism. That you come out of your isolation, that you move out of your comfort zone.” Or else.

When campaigning in Roseburg, Ore., Obama said: “We can’t drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times … and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK.” Obama added: “That’s not leadership. That’s not going to happen.” Seems that Obama won’t let us enjoy our freedoms any more than he’ll let us defend them.

Barack Obama Inspiring Racism Growth

American’s will soon be voting for the next President and the choice is Black and White. No matter what your personal opinion is, race is a factor in this election. Barack Obama has reached this point so far because of his race, even though his camp denounces anyone that points this out and labels them racists. Well it seems a group of Americans, White Supremicists and Neo Nazis that has lost power and numbers over the past 30 years is rearing its head and interest in these groups is growing. I would imagine over the next few months memberships will start flying.

This could be a factor in the upcomming elections that Obama did not count out. Now these folks defintely do not agree with McCain and probably would not vote for him if Hillary had the Democratic nomination. However be assured they will vote for him because they will not accept a black president.

Don Black of Stormfront supported Ron Paul because Paul thinks the Amendments to the Constitution other than the Bill of Rights should be repealled. That would take away the rights of every black American and essential legalize Slavery. So you can bet he is going to start promoting McCain. I would imagine the suit wearing racists like the KKK’s David Dukes are going to be running some behind the scenes campaigns as well.

Sen. Barack Obama’s victory in the Democratic primaries, celebrated as a symbol of racial progress and cultural unity, has also sparked an increase in racist and white supremacist activity, mainly on the Internet, according to leaders of hate groups and the organizations that track them.

Neo-Nazi, skinhead and segregationist groups have reported gains in numbers of

visitors to their Web sites and in membership since the senator from Illinois secured the Democratic nomination June 3. His success has aroused a community of racists, experts said, concerned by the possibility of the country’s first black president.

“I haven’t seen this much anger in a long, long time,” said Billy Roper, a 36-year-old who runs a group called White Revolution in Russellville, Ark. “Nothing has awakened normally complacent white Americans more than the prospect of America having an overtly nonwhite president.”

Such groups have historically inflated their influence for self-promotion, and, as an intimidation technique, they refused to provide exact membership numbers or open their meetings to a reporter. Leaders acknowledged that their numbers remain very small — “the flat-globe society still has more people than us,” Roper said. But experts said their claims reveal more than hyperbole this time.

“The truth is, we’re finding an explosion in these kinds of hateful sentiments on the Net, and it’s a growing problem,” said Deborah Lauter, civil rights director for the Anti-Defamation League, which monitors hate-group activity. “There are probably thousands of Web sites that do this now. I couldn’t even tell you how many are out there because it’s growing so fast.”

Earlier this month, Obama’s campaign launched a Web site to defuse the false rumors that hatemongers spread on the Internet.

But on a Web site run out of a house in West Palm Beach, Fla., the other side is also fighting.

Don Black spends 16 hours each day on his laptop computer reading hundreds of derogatory Obama comments posted on Stormfront.org, a Web site with the motto “white pride world wide.” Black, a former Ku Klux Klan leader, launched the site in 1995 to create a central meeting place for the white-power movement. With Obama having secured enough delegates for the nomination, Stormfront, he says, has begun to fulfill his vision.

A site that drew a few thousand visitors per day in 2002 has expanded into Black’s full-time job, attracting more than 40,000 unique users each day who can post on 54 different message boards, he said. Black has enlisted 40 moderators and his 19-year-old son to help run Stormfront.

Posters on Stormfront complain that Obama represents the end of “white rule” and the beginning of “multiculturalism.” They fear that he will promote affirmative action, support illegal immigration and help render whites, who make up two-thirds of the U.S. population, “the new minority.”

“I get nonstop e-mails and private messages from new people who are mad as hell about the possibility of Obama being elected,” said Black, a white-power activist since the 1970s. “White people, for a long time, have thought of our government as being for us, and Obama is the best possible evidence that we’ve lost that. This is scaring a lot of people who maybe never considered themselves racists, and it’s bringing them over to our side.”

Almost all white-power leaders said they are benefiting from the rise in recruits. Roper said White Revolution receives about 10 new applicants each week, more than double the norm.

North Korea Blows Up Cooling Tower At Main Nuke Site

Something is up with North Korea’s very quick Nuclear breakdown… Yesterday they release their disclosure as part of the lifting of sanctions and today they blow up the cooling tower at Yonbyon, with pictures and everything.

It would seem almost desparate in nature. Especially with the pictures and video being released by this secretive governemnt.  Is the country that bad off from the tryranical rule they have endured? Is this some sort of show? Are they creating a distraction? Only time will tell. I just hope those in power tread carefully and don’t take things at face value.

PYONGYANG, North Korea (CNN) — North Korea on Friday destroyed a water cooling tower at a facility where officials acknowledge they extracted plutonium to build nuclear weapons, CNN’s Chief International Correspondent Christiane Amanpour reported from the scene.

The cooling tower is demolished at the Yongbyon nuclear complex near Pyongyang, North Korea.

The cooling tower is demolished at the Yongbyon nuclear complex near Pyongyang, North Korea.

The massive implosion, which came at about 5pm local time Friday at the Yongbyon facility, was intended to be a powerful public symbol of a move to end nuclear activities by the Communist nation once branded a member of an “axis of evil” by U.S. President George W. Bush.

The destruction of the highly visible symbol of North Korea’s long-secret nuclear program came just a day after the country released details of its program.

A signal flare gave a three-minute warning as U.S. State Department officials and observers from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) watched from a reviewing stand.

“The whole thing came tumbling down,” Amanpour said.

“This is a very significant disablement step,” the U.S. envoy to North Korea, Sung Kim, said.

Nuclear experts say that the plant’s destroyed central water-cooling tower would take a year or longer to rebuild if North Korea were to try using the plant again.

“This is a critical piece of equipment for the nuclear reactor,” said analyst John Wolfsthal, of the Center for Strategic and International Studies, who has been following North Korea since the 1980s. “Without this facility, the reactor can’t operate and can’t produce more plutonium for weapons.” Watch the tower being demolished Video

North Korea has been dismantling other parts of the facility under the watchful eyes of representatives of the five other nations, including the U.S., that have been involved in six-party talks aimed at ending Pyongyang’s nuclear weapons program.

On Thursday, North Korean officials turned over to China a 60-page declaration, written in English, that details several rounds of plutonium production at the Yongbyon plant dating back to 1986. Video Watch President Bush claim progress over the N. Korea nuclear issue »

In it, North Korea acknowledges producing roughly 40 kilograms of enriched plutonium — enough for about seven nuclear bombs, according to the U.S. State Department.

In response, Bush said he would lift some U.S. sanctions against North Korea and remove the country from the State Department’s list of state sponsors of terrorism.

But he made clear that other sanctions remained in place on North Korea — which has been on the terrorism list since its alleged involvement in the 1987 bombing of a South Korean airliner which killed 115 people.

“The United States has no illusions about the regime in Pyongyang,” Bush said. “We remain deeply concerned about North Korea’s human rights abuses, uranium enrichment activities, nuclear testing and proliferation, ballistic missile programs and the threat it continues to pose to South Korea and its neighbors.”

U.S. analysts will pore over the document to resolve Washington’s outstanding concerns, which include questions about the extent of North Korea’s proliferation of nuclear technology and the status of any uranium enrichment program. Video Watch what’s still unknown after Pyongyang’s declaration »

Friday’s event at the nuclear plant marked at least an effort by North Korea — dubbed “The Hermit Kingdom” in the international community for its isolationist tendencies — to show the world a good-faith effort to end its nuclear weapons program.

Media outlets from the five other nations involved in the talks were invited to view the tower’s implosion, a rare move in North Korea. CNN was among the media outlets present.

But there appeared to be no mention of the declaration or planned implosion at Yongbyon on the Web site of North Korea’s state-run news agency on Thursday. And an article Wednesday noted the 58th anniversary of the Korean war, calling it “a war of aggression started by the U.S. imperialists in an attempt to occupy the whole of Korea.”

 

 

Hillary Bailout

This is why we need campaign finance reform, not the Liberal version either.

Hillary is able to spend more than she has, then “loan” her campaign money, loose to Obama and then have a method of recoupping her loses

First of all, she should not have been allowed to spend more than she had available. Second she should not have been able to loan her campaign money, either she donates it to the campaign or she does not contribute to it.

If she has a method of getting her money back, then everyone that donated to her failure of a campaign should be entitled to a refund.

This rich liberals, Obama and Clinton, are leeches and have sucked up millions from the working class, and want a golden parachute to get their cash back while America’s that contributed to their campaigns are left holding the bag… Typical liberal politics, steal from the poor and give to the rich.

Now, the story not being reported, Obama and Hillary show how fiscally irresponsibility is handled… Ask Average working Americans to donate money, over spend, ask tax payers to reimburse them… This has been the problem for years with liberal fiscal policy, reminds me of how the liberal uncontrolled school boards operate…

Another reason Barack should keep his promise of public finance for the election, but nay, he can rake in more money without that…

This should be classified as a crime under fraud…

Sen. Barack Obama has asked top contributors to help his former rival for the Democratic presidential nomination, Sen. Hillary Clinton, retire her debt, an Obama campaign source said Tuesday. 

Sen. Barack Obama is to campaign with Sen. Hillary Clinton in Unity, New Hampshire, on Friday.

Obama did not direct members of his National Finance Committee to contribute to Clinton’s campaign, the source said, but asked them to do so if they were so inclined.

Clinton suspended her campaign and endorsed Obama for the Democratic presidential nomination this month.

She has amassed a campaign debt of about $22 million, but about $12 million of that is money the New York senator loaned to the campaign herself.

Individual donors can contribute $2,300 to individual candidates.

Clinton and Obama have scheduled a joint campaign appearance Friday in Unity, New Hampshire.

Obama said Tuesday that he had spoken with Clinton by phone earlier in the day as well as on Sunday.

“We had a good conversation,” he said. “We’re looking forward to seeing each other tomorrow and campaigning on Friday.”

Speculators + Congressional Inaction = High Oil Prices

Well Congress “May” finally listen to the people and go after those that are creating the high oil prices… There are many factors involved in the current cost of oil in the US, but one of the most significant is the speculators on Wall Street. As I said before, there is an agenda here and because of this agenda, I do not think Congress will act on behalf of the people, or not act fully…

Speculators have created this new Oil Bubble and it needs to be popped…

I love these two quotes:

“I always worry when politicians think they know better than the market what the price of oil should be.”

“You’re raising the cost of doing business for the people who need the futures market,”

I always love when people making money for nothing think they know better what the market price of oil should be. This is completely against capitism’s supply and demand theory.

The second asshat doesn’t realize he is raising the cost of living for every American.

NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) — Fed up with soaring oil prices and a chorus of people blaming Wall Street speculators, Congress is considering a host of rules aimed at limiting the inflow of investor money into oil contracts.

But oil traders urge caution. While more disclosure is a good thing, they say making it harder for speculators to invest in oil futures could have the opposite effect intended, and send prices higher.

In light of oil’s phenomenal climb from under $50 a barrel to nearly $140 in less than 18 months – and the public belief that Wall Street traders were behind the rise – Congress is awash in bills that attempt to limit the role of speculators. Several have bipartisan support and could soon become law.

“In two days, the price of oil rose $16,” said Sen. Richard Durbin, D-Ill., at a joint hearing of two Senate panels on oil speculation Tuesday. “Did I miss something, was there some war in the Middle East?”

“No, something is going on besides supply and demand, and it could be excessive speculation,” he added.

Proposals have included requiring foreign exchanges to provide more information about crude oil trades, limiting the number of contracts speculators are allowed to hold, increasing the amount of money speculators need to put up to buy an oil contract, and removing speculators from the market entirely and limiting trade to just producers and consumers.

Government regulators said they are monitoring the markets for evidence of manipulation – someone withholding production in an attempt to bid up prices – and are gathering more information on the role speculators play.

“If the CFTC sounds busy, it is,” said Walter Lukken, acting chairman of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission. “This small agency is working hard to protect the public from manipulation and abuse.”

Lukken said the CFTC has just reached an agreement with the IntercontinentalExchange (ICE) in London for that exchange to comply with U.S. disclosure rules – basically letting regulators know who is buying oil contracts.

Oil traders say requiring more information from foreign exchanges is a good idea, as markets function better the more transparent they are.

But they urge lawmakers not to hamper speculative trading. They say big oil users such as refiners or airlines – unable to find a counter party to offset their bets – could send prices higher by hoarding product or through panic buying.

“They have to be very, very careful with what they’re doing here,” said Phil Flynn, senior market analyst at Alaron Trading in Chicago. “I always worry when politicians think they know better than the market what the price of oil should be.”

Another trader agreed, especially when it comes to doing something such as raising margin requirements, the amount of money traders are required to put up to buy contracts.

“You’re raising the cost of doing business for the people who need the futures market,” Stephen Schork, publisher of the industry newsletter The Schork Report, told CNNMoney.com. “In the long run, it’s bullish.”

CFTC’s Lukken also said raising the margin requirement may have a negative effect.

“Margin (requirement) is a very blunt tool, and it could potentially drive markets overseas” where there is even less regulation, said Lukken.

A spokesman for Sen. Durbin said proposals to raise the margin requirements have been removed from legislation after lawmakers listened to concerns from the industry.

The airline industry, a big user of oil, urged Congress to take action.

“Crude oil prices today are unnecessarily high and distorted due, in large part, to market manipulation and excessive speculation,” Jim May, president of the Air Transport Association, said at the hearing. “The impact of these unprecedented jet fuel prices on the airlines is devastating and airlines may see 2008 losses nearing $10 billion, on par with the worst financial year in aviation history.”

May called on Congress to enact more oversight of foreign exchanges, and to “curtail extremely risky investments by pension funds that jeopardize savings for employees across the country.” 

Marine Corps: 7 – Murtha’s Haditha Conspiracy: 0

The highest pranking Marine officer,Lt. Col. Jeffrey Chessani, implicated in the Haditha Massacre has had charges against him dropped.

Well it would seem with one case left, that makes this whole thing nothing more than a liberal smear campaign, politicized for the benefit of a few with the sole intention of trying to blame more on Bush…

Seven of the Eight Marines charged have been vindicated, now only Staff Sgt. Frank Wuterich is left to stand trial.

 Hey John Murtha, WE ARE STILL WAITING FOR AN APOLOGY TO OUR MARINES.

As I have said before John Murtha and the Mass Media should be brought up on charges for endangering our soldiers on the battlefield. I would venture to call this sham by Murtha treasonous.

CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. —  A military judge has dismissed charges against a Marine officer accused of failing to investigate the killings of 24 Iraqis.

Col. Steven Folsom dismissed charges Tuesday against Lt. Col. Jeffrey Chessani after defense attorneys raised concerns that a four-star general overseeing the prosecution was improperly influenced by an investigator probing the November 2005 shootings by a Marine squad in Haditha.

The charges were dismissed without prejudice, meaning they can be refiled, but Folsom excluded Marine Forces Central Command from future involvement.

Chessani was the highest-ranking officer implicated in the case.

Duck, Duck, Guilty Goose

 Well, one of the two Fireworks kids has pleaded guilty to PROVIDING MATERIAL SUPPORT TO TERRORISTS… Where are the liberals who said they didn’t do anything… The media was blowing this out of proportion… etc…

So that make two of the three guilty, I guess Youssef will be next to plead guilty.  

What will CAIR say now? Ahmed Mohamed pleads guilty to providing material support to terrorists. Just an innocent kid on a joy ride with fireworks? Not:

Former University of South Florida student Ahmed Mohamed has agreed to plead guilty to providing material support to terrorists, according to a signed 12-page plea agreement entered onto the docket in U.S. District Court.

Mohamed, an Egyptian citizen, was arrested, along with another student, Youssef Megahed, in North Carolina in August after deputies said they found explosive materials in their trunk.

Authorities charged Mohamed with trying to help terrorists in connection with a video they said he made and posted to the Web site YouTube. On the video, authorities said, he showed how to use a remote-controlled toy to detonate a bomb.

Under the terms of the plea deal, prosecutors have agreed to dismiss other charges, including counts in an indictment alleging he illegally transported explosives. The maximum penalty for the charge to which Mohamed will plead guilty is 15 years in federal prison and a $250,000 fine.

TBO.com has the PDF of the plea agreement.
