Obama, Hillary, Unity

Ah, sweet love, sweet unity. It's all coming together for the Little Marxists, isn't it?

From BBC News:

    The town of Unity, New Hampshire, could hardly have done more to make itself the ideal backdrop for this great symbolic act of reconciliation.

    America's Democrats came together to bury their differences in a gently shelving meadow cut from the rolling woodland of rural New England.


    And of course, the two senators, slick and seasoned performers, were bang on message.

    Mrs Clinton praised Mr Obama and spoke of him as a friend - she directly urged those of her supporters who are considering not voting at all, or even voting for Mr McCain, to reconsider.


    Mr Obama needs Mrs Clinton's supporters, and Mrs Clinton needs Mr Obama's support.

    In other words, he needs the votes of the older women and blue-collar men who tended to support her in the Democratic primaries and she needs help to start paying off her colossal campaign debts, thought to be well over $20 million.

    It is fair to say that both processes are now under way.

    Mrs Clinton has been far more gracious and constructive in defeat than her critics would have thought possible, however deep her private disappointment.

    And Mr Obama has not only urged some of his own wealthy backers to help Mrs Clinton - he set the ball rolling by writing her a cheque himself.


    But there were plenty of Hillary supporters in the crowd too whose mood was, for want of a better word, un-unified..

I wonder how Bill and Hillary Clinton will undermine the campaign and candidacy of Barack
Hussein Obama, Jr.?

One has to wonder if Bill didn't somehow - for his own selfish reasons - consciously or subconsciously work against Hillary's presidential campaign. Now, they both are supposedly working and supporting the election of The Meccachurian Candidate.

Should Republican Senator and Presidential Candidate John McCain win the November Election, Hillary can run again in four years. She knows she cannot make a run for the White House in 2012 if Obama wins. Herein lies the fly in the ointment for Hillary Clinton with Obama getting elected in November.

As if this is not enough of a problem for her, should McCain win in November, as we approach 2012 Hillary will have to decide whether or not to run for another Senate term and whether she should run again as a presidential candidate.

2008 was supposed to be the Year Of Hillary. Instead, the rug was pulled out from under her by a heretofore unknown and inexperienced candidate who possesses virtually no qualifications and a blank resume seeking the highest elected office in the United States. For Hillary, this must chafe and sting. She is used to having things her way, and along comes this upstart, speaking in vague generalities and steals the thunder from her. She's angry. She may pretend she isn't, hiding it from public view, but she is angry. Very, very angry.

So if you are Hillary, what is the best strategy right now to set yourself up for another presidential run in 2012? The answer is obvious; pretend you're going to work for and support the person who beat you in the primaries while working from within to torpedo it. Unleash Bubba to work against the candidate you claim you support. Bubba will smile, put on his happy face, pretending to support Obama. He will campaign for him. But sooner or later, Bubba will say or do something that derails Obama. Sooner or later Bubba, and most likely Hillary, will say and do something to take down Obama.

Bubba can make a gaffe, as he did saying "even Jesse Jackson won South Carolina", and then he can apologize for it saying he didn't mean it. But once his gaffe is out there, it's out there, he can't make his words vanish. He can't undo them. This will be devastating for the Obama campaign.

Hillary can do the same, saying or doing something that will knock Obama's campaign off course, perhaps once again mentioning the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy. Maybe she will play the gender card - again - in a subtle message to her female base that Obama really doesn't deserve their support.

Both Bubba and Hillary are sly and underhanded. While as a team they may not have been able to propel her into the White House (and I still have my doubts that she won't be the president), there is little doubt that together they will slowly chip away at Obama's popularity and candidacy. They know darn well how to figuratively cut their opponent off at the kneecaps. And they will do this, oh how they will do this.

The next four months of the Obama-Clinton Unity Tour will be fascinating to watch. The biggest adversaries of Obama are not Republicans, the McCain Camp, Conservative Talk Radio, racists or the Reich Wingers. The biggest foes that will be working against Obama will be those from within his campaign, those he thinks are working for him; Bill and Hillary Clinton.

Canada's Healthcare In Ruins

I heard the great Glenn Beck talking about this issue on his Thursday radio program.

Claude Castonguay, the godfather of Canada's socialized healthcare, now says the Canadian system is in ruins.

His answer to fix it? Are you sitting down? Are you comfortable? Is your heart beating at a normal, relaxed rate?

Get ready.

His answer is...

...privatize Canada's healthcare system! (GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASP!)

"Socialized healthcare? Why, dat's just crazy-talk!"

Investor's Business Daily:

    Back in the 1960s, Castonguay chaired a Canadian government committee studying health reform and recommended that his home province of Quebec — then the largest and most affluent in the country — adopt government-administered health care, covering all citizens through tax levies.

    The government followed his advice, leading to his modern-day moniker: "the father of Quebec medicare." Even this title seems modest; Castonguay's work triggered a domino effect across the country, until eventually his ideas were implemented from coast to coast.

    Four decades later, as the chairman of a government committee reviewing Quebec health care this year, Castonguay concluded that the system is in "crisis."

    "We thought we could resolve the system's problems by rationing services or injecting massive amounts of new money into it," says Castonguay. But now he prescribes a radical overhaul: "We are proposing to give a greater role to the private sector so that people can exercise freedom of choice."

    Castonguay advocates contracting out services to the private sector, going so far as suggesting that public hospitals rent space during off-hours to entrepreneurial doctors. He supports co-pays for patients who want to see physicians. Castonguay, the man who championed public health insurance in Canada, now urges for the legalization of private health insurance.


    What would drive a man like Castonguay to reconsider his long-held beliefs? Try a health care system so overburdened that hundreds of thousands in need of medical attention wait for care, any care; a system where people in towns like Norwalk, Ontario, participate in lotteries to win appointments with the local family doctor.

    Years ago, Canadians touted their health care system as the best in the world; today, Canadian health care stands in ruinous shape.

    Sick with ovarian cancer, Sylvia de Vires, an Ontario woman afflicted with a 13-inch, fluid-filled tumor weighing 40 pounds, was unable to get timely care in Canada. She crossed the American border to Pontiac, Mich., where a surgeon removed the tumor, estimating she could not have lived longer than a few weeks more.


    Canada isn't the only country facing a government health care crisis. Britain's system, once the postwar inspiration for many Western countries, is similarly plagued. Both countries trail the U.S. in five-year cancer survival rates, transplantation outcomes and other measures.

It will be interesting to see if, or how, American Liberals and Progressives talk about this issue and if they do, how they will either dismiss the above story or arrogantly proclaim that "they can do a better job."

To what country do kings, queen, royalty, celebrities and heads of state travel to, to receive medical treatment? Do they seek treatment in Canada, Cuba, the U.K.? Or do they travel to the United States?
In what country did Ted Kennedy receive treatment for his tumor?

Do yourself a huge favor and read the entire IBD story. Become informed on the myriad of downsides and problems associated with socialized healthcare. Don't let the Democrats pull the wool over your eyes. The United States has the best healthcare system in the world. Does it need some reform? Yes it does. Does it need to be "socialized"? No, not now, not ever.

Spider Bite Sidelines Mike Malloy

Spider 1, Malloy 0

At the opening of his Thursday night unlistened to Liberal Radio Hatefest, The Rapidly Decaying Corpse of Mike Malloy said he wasn't feeling well.

The Rapidly Decaying Corpse said he believes sometime on Wednesday he was bitten by either a Brown Recluse or Black Widow spider. He said went to the emergency room and has a mobile and drugged IV drip going into his swollen left arm. He mentioned his blood pressure dropped to 96 over 50. That's 95 and 49 points too high, in my opinion.

Malloy...um...the one on the right. I think.

Upon hearing the news that he had been bitten by a spider and wasn't feeling well, I reached for a box of Kleenex, not out of sadness or sympathy, but for joy. Tears of joy! I wept and wept tears of joy.

Karma, sweet sweet chocolaty, nougaty, creamy, glorious, caramel, whipped cream Karma - delivered to the Hate Monger and Smear Merchant Decaying Corpse via a Spider.

Thank you, Spider. Thanks a Million!

Supreme Court: Heller Affirmed

Woooooooooooooooooo Hoooooooooooooooooooo! The Supreme Court hit one out of the ballpark on their Second Amendment ruling in District of Columbia v Heller.

From AFP:

    The US Supreme Court ruled Thursday that individual Americans have a constitutional right to bear arms, ending a ban on owning handguns in the capital in its first ruling on gun rights in 70 years.

    The court's 5-4 landmark decision -- on whether the right to keep and bear arms is an individual or collective right -- said the city's law violated the second amendment of the US constitution which the justices said guaranteed citizens the right to keep guns at home for self-defense.

    "There seems to us no doubt, on the basis of both text and history, that the second amendment conferred an individual right to keep and bear arms," wrote Justice Antonin Scalia in the court's decision.

    He added the court took seriously the problem of handgun violence in cities like Washington and said there were "a variety of tools for combating that problem, including some measures regulating handguns."

    "The enshrinement of constitutional rights necessarily takes certain policy choices off the table. These include the absolute prohibition of handguns held and used for self-defense in the home," the court ruled.


    The ruling was a victory for gun rights advocates, but gun control proponents said it would help their cause by endorsing the regulation of firearms.

    The high court had never before issued a precise ruling on the interpretation of the second amendment, which states: "A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."

    Washington, home to the White House and the US administration, has some of the toughest gun control laws in the country.

    Private possession of handguns is strictly banned here, and any rifles or shotguns must be kept unloaded in homes or under a trigger lock.

    City officials argued the ban, instituted in 1976, was necessary to stem rising gun violence, and that the second amendment protected gun rights for people associated with militias, not individuals.

    The case, District of Columbia vs. Heller, was originally brought in 2003 by a federal building guard who carries a handgun on duty and wanted to keep it in his home for self-defense.

The SCOTUS ruling has the gun control crowd howling like the Moonbats they are. NY Times:

    Gun-control advocates across the country reacted with shock and outrage at the Supreme Court’s decision to strike down the District of Columbia’s ban on handguns today, saying the ruling would threaten gun-control measures in other states.


    In Chicago, Mayor Richard M. Daley, a staunch supporter of gun control, called the decision “frightening”[.]


    Senator Dianne Feinstein, a former mayor of San Francisco, which also restricts the owning of guns, reacted strongly to the ruling, saying she was “viscerally affected” by it and worried for the nation’s safety.


    “Unlike the elitist view that believes Americans cling to guns out of bitterness, today’s ruling recognizes that gun ownership is a fundamental right — sacred, just as the right to free speech and assembly,” [Republican Senator and Presidential Candidate John McCain] said.


    [Barack Hussein Obama said], "I have always believed that the Second Amendment protects the right of individuals to bear arms[.]" [ He is lying! - Drake ]

Huh, those are strange words coming from The Meccachurian Candidate, considering his past record and statements on the Second Amendment. On The Issues:

    Obama was being misleading when he denied that his handwriting had been on a document endorsing a state ban on the sale and possession of handguns in Illinois. Obama responded, "No, my writing wasn't on that particular questionnaire. As I said, I have never favored an all-out ban on handguns." [ Oh yes he has! - Drake ]

    Actually, Obama's writing was on the 1996 document, which was filed when Obama was running for the Illinois state Senate. A Chicago nonprofit, Independent Voters of Illinois, had this question, and Obama took hard line:

    35. Do you support state legislation to:
    a. ban the manufacture, sale and possession of handguns? Yes.


    [In Year] 2000: [Obama] cosponsored [a] bill to limit purchases to 1 gun per month:

    Obama sought moderate gun control measures, such as a 2000 bill he cosponsored to limit handgun purchases to one per month (it did not pass). He voted against letting people violate local weapons bans in cases of self-defense[.]


    Principles that Obama supports on gun issues:

    * Ban the sale or transfer of all forms of semi-automatic weapons.
    * Increase state restrictions on the purchase and possession of firearms.

Banning the sale or transfer of ALL forms of semi-automatic weapons would leave us with only revolvers and single shot shotguns and rifles...until, of course, The Liberals took them away from us.

A semi-automatic weapon IS NOT a weapon where you pull the trigger once and it continually spits out bullets until the clip is empty. Liberals would like for you to believe that this is what meant by the term semi-automatic, but it most definitely is not.

It is also interesting to note that Diane Whinestein is a rabid anti-Second Amendment politician but who has her own permit to carry a concealed handgun for her protection. . Oh, she may claim she no longer does this, but you know what - I don't believe her, not one bit. So it is quite entertaining to ponder that Whinestein allows herself the privilege of defending herself, but does not think that "the common people" should be entitled to do the same. Whinestein also is malignantly clueless when it comes to handling and holding an "assault weapon".

And the American Public Health Association (APHA) is gravely disappointed by [Thursday's] Supreme Court ruling against the District of Columbia's gun restrictions. Awwwwwww. "Dat's.So.Sad!" Quick, someone get me another box of Kleenex!

The SCOTUS ruling was SPOT ON! Go outside, point your rifles, shotguns and handguns toward the sky, and fire off a couple rounds of celebratory shots. I mean this strictly in the figurative sense.

Obama Invents Vote That Wasn't There

Well, this is special.

The Obamalith claimed he voted for a bill that...wait for it...

...wait for it...


...he didn't!

Via National Review:

    Barack Obama released his first general election ad on Friday, which seems aimed above all to answer some early concerns about his biography and experience. It’s a well made ad, but it also offers an example of the kind of brazen padding of the resume that Obama will inevitably need to engage in, and which will carry serious risks for him.

    About 46 seconds into the ad, we are told that Obama “passed laws” that “extended healthcare for wounded troops who’d been neglected,” and in the usual manner of these political commercials we are given a little citation at the bottom. The citation reads “Public Law 110-181 1/28/08”. That law is the only federal legislation cited in the ad — the other two items mentioned were from the Illinois legislature and referred to other issues raised in the ad.

    Public Law 110-181 was the 2008 defense authorization bill. It passed the Senate by 91 to 3 in January, with six Senators not voting. Among those six absentees was Barack Obama. So he cites a bill he didn’t even vote for. Did he contribute to it in some way that might be reasonably referred to as extending healthcare for wounded troops who’d been neglected? It certainly doesn’t seem that way, as even Obama supporters at the Daily Kos discovered when they tried to answer some of the bloggers who pointed to Obama’s citation of the bill. They found that Obama had tried to insert an amendment that had to do with screenings for service members returning from deployments, and one that would ease the discharge of service members found to have personality disorders, but neither amendment passed. Another part of the bill, calling for inspector general reports about hospital facilities, had come from a different bill Obama had sponsored.

    Even under the most generous reading imaginable could any of that count as passing legislation that extended health care for wounded troops? The Chicago Tribune noted the problem on its blog last week but defended Obama by pointing out that John McCain didn’t vote for the bill either. That would be an interesting piece of information if John McCain had cited this bill as among his chief legislative accomplishments.

    The Obama team’s desire to pad the resume is understandable — it’s awfully slim after all. But this kind of dishonesty will catch up with them…or at least it should.


Well, see for yourself, here is his ad, in his own words. And watch the timer for the 46 second mark and you will hear him say that he “passed laws” that “extended healthcare for wounded troops who’d been neglected.”

I think the Meccachurian Candidate should simply begin all future statements, speeches and video messages with the phrase, "Once Upon A Time." In doing this, he would at least be slightly more truthful.

Oh -oh -oh - once more thing. Did you notice all the "white floating crosses" in the background of Obama, the ones looking like white wooden window pane dividers (also called muntins, or muntin bars, see item 8), that are intended to resemble "white floating crosses"? This is the same kind of imagery that the Left accused Mike Huckabee of intentionally and subliminally including in his Christmas greeting video with the "bookshelf" meant to resemble a white cross to garner support from the religious right.

Watch the above Obama video again. See all those intentionally placed white floating crosses behind Obama? They look just like white, wooden window pane dividers (muntins), but are no doubt meant to resemble "white floating crucifixes". How pandering, how shameful. How low will he stoop to lie or deceive just to get a vote?

Obama Supporter McPeak Calls McCain "Fat"

From WaPo:

    Turns out the most senior retired general to back Sen. Barack Obama crossed paths with Sen. John McCain during their active-duty years.


    Mr. McCain, a fighter pilot just like Gen. McPeak, was seeking to restart a military career after nearly six years of harsh treatment in North Vietnam.

    "He was fresh out of jail, you know," Gen. McPeak said. "Skinny kid. All beat up of course, physically. But quite thin. They weren't feeding him very well in Hanoi. He's done very well at the dinner table in Washington."


    "Surely a four-star general can come up with something better than that," said Orson Swindle, a former Marine Corps pilot who, like Mr. McCain, was shot down over enemy territory. "It reeks of pettiness and sarcasm, and I can't imagine why he can make that kind of comment to imply that John McCain feasts at the Washington establishment."

    "It's just disappointing to see someone who rose to four-start rank be so petty," said Mr. Swindle, who is campaigning for the Republican senator.

When asked about McPeak's statement, Barack Hussein Obama lept to the podium and replied, "That's not the General McPeak that I knew." /sarcasm

The most revealing item about McPeak is perhaps the following comment on the above story located at the same WaPo link:

    By: Kimo

    I know Tony McPeak. In the late 90s he tried to get appointed as a precinct captain in Clackamas county Oregon and was denied because he was a fake Republican. Round business circles in Oregon he is known as "Mr. Window Dressing"...in that he is willing to be appointed to any board for money. Though he seldom shows up. The man is all about doing whatever he can to monetize his military service. He has his feet firmly planted in mid-air.
    June 26, 2008 at 5:05 p.m.

It is said that McPeak also fancied himself as a clothing designer. Wiki:

    He is best remembered by Air Force personnel for the sweeping changes which he made in the blue service uniform. Worn by more personnel during most duties, the new version (derisively known as "Admiral McPeak's Blue Suit", "The Doorman's Uniform", or "Merrill Apparel") was a radical departure from the earlier version, which was essentially the same as the US Army service uniform (the US Air Force was originally the US Army Air Corps). The McPeak uniform was never popular, and was obsoleted rapidly after McPeak retired.

"Why, you look sthimply fabulous in blue!"

Oh, and add McPeak to the list of another of many Israel-haters that Obama surrounds himself with. Wiki:

    McPeak was harshly criticized by American Spectator journalist Robert Goldberg for comments and writings he has made regarding Israel.[7]

    Goldberg begins the piece saying that "McPeak has a long history of criticizing Israel for not going back to the 1967 borders as part of any peace agreement with Arab states. In 1976 McPeak wrote an article for Foreign Affairs magazine questioning Israel's insistence on holding on to the Golan Heights and parts of the West Bank."[7]

    Goldberg writes that "[in] recent years McPeak has echoed the Mearsheimer-Walt view that American Middle East policy is being controlled by Jews at the expense of America's interests in the region."

Obama? Surrounded by Jew-haters and anti-Semites? Why, who would ever have guessed that?!?

Blogger Blues

Oh, how I hate it when one of the good ones leave the Blogosphere.

I'm hoping it's only a temporary and short-term thing.

Nora (aka Lady Vorzheva) at Spanish Pundit II writes that she is leaving the Blogosphere (scroll down just a bit at the link for the English version):

    Hello, my international readers. There is time for everything in life and the time for me of quitting off blogging (at least for a long time) has come. The situation is worsening day by day and I don't think that blogging is going to make us arrive to any solution at all.


    It's possible that I will write something for international blogs when I think it's important enough to do it. But it would never be a regular blogging scheme as I was doing here, it would only be when I consider the news are sooo important I have to blog about them.

    So I'm writing this post to thank the readers, the commenters, the linkers and the people who had given me any awards they have deemed I merited.

Nora, as I commented on your post, take as much time away from blogging as you need and want. But please, my friend, leave open the possibility of returning. Not having you around has made the Blogosphere less interesting.

Thank you for being so instructive, informative and educational to all of us who read your blog. Thank you for keeping the international community so well-informed on so many issues, perhaps the most important being the spread of Radical Islam in Europe. For this, you are owed so much gratitude and appreciation.
Thank you for being so kind to me. Thank you for the frequent links to something I wrote that you found worthy of linking to. Thank you for being a voice in my comments.

Best to you always, keep in touch. You're the best.

Hasta luego.

Spain Gives Apes Human Rights

Via al-Reuters:

    Spain's parliament voiced its support on Wednesday for the rights of great apes to life and freedom in what will apparently be the first time any national legislature has called for such rights for non-humans.

    Parliament's environmental committee approved resolutions urging Spain to comply with the Great Apes Project, devised by scientists and philosophers who say our closest genetic relatives deserve rights hitherto limited to humans.

    "This is a historic day in the struggle for animal rights and in defense of our evolutionary comrades, which will doubtless go down in the history of humanity," said Pedro Pozas, Spanish director of the Great Apes Project.

Fiction becomes reality.
Soon, American Democrats will be recruiting the Apes into their party
by promising them monetary benefits and health care.

Poll Shows Obama Way Ahead
Or Does It?

An L.A. Times/Bloomberg poll allegedly shows Hussein Obama leading John McCain by 12 points. AFP:

    Democratic White House hopeful Barack Obama has built a yawning 12-point national lead over Republican John McCain, according to a new poll published by the Los Angeles Times Tuesday.

    The LA Times/Bloomberg survey conducted over the weekend said that in a head-to-head contest, Obama had 49 percent support against 37 percent for McCain.

First off, I'd like to say that I'm happy The Meccachurian Candidate is allegedly leading because this can only mean he has nowhere to go but down. And down he will.

What fewer people know is that the poll was conducted using skewed data. From the Boston Globe:

    In a memo, [McCain pollsters point out] that 39 percent of respondents in the poll identified themselves as Democrats, 27 percent as independents, and 22 percent as Republicans, leaving 12 percent unaccounted.

So, in the LAT/Bloomberg poll, 39 percent of the respondents identified as Democrats, only 22 identified as Republicans and 27 as Indies.

What's surprising about the poll is that Obama wasn't leading McCain by triple digits considering how those who were polled were so weighted to the Left.

The Gallup Poll has McCain and Obama in a dead-heat, at 45% - vs - 45%.

The Rasmussen Poll states the following:

    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows Barack Obama attracting 46% of the vote while John McCain earns 40%. When "leaners" are included, Obama leads 49% to 45%.


    The race has remained very stable in recent weeks. Without leaners, Obama’s support has stayed between 45% and 47% for fourteen straight days. With leaners, he has stayed between 48% and 50% for twenty straight days.

    As for McCain, his support has been at 40% or 41% on eighteen of the last twenty-one days. Twice, he inched up a point above that range and once he slipped a point below. With leaners, McCain’s support has stayed between 42% and 45% every day since Obama clinched the Democratic Presidential Nomination.


    Both Obama and McCain are viewed favorably by 55% and unfavorably by 43%. However, in findings that mirror an “enthusiasm gap” found in other polls, 32% have a Very Favorable opinion of Obama while just 16% are that upbeat about McCain. Opposition to Obama is also stronger--26% hold a Very Unfavorable opinion of the presumptive Democratic nominee while just 19% say the same about his Republican counterpart.

What do we learn from this? Well, mostly that the two most reputable, accurate and trustworthy polls are, in fact, the Gallup and Rasmussen Organizations.

If you think that the 26% who hold a "Very Unfavorable" opinion of Obama will not come into play, and work for McCain, then I have lake shore property to sell you at very reasonable prices...on the planet Mercury.

Obama's numbers have nowhere to go but down over the next four months. And they will drop. And when they drop, they are going to plummet like a brick tossed into a lake. This will happen because The Illinois Muslim - and we see this happening before our eyes - is getting more and more confident and with that comes his arrogance. His feeling of being entitled to the White House, no different than his "can't we just be done with this primary process" attitude he had when his battle against Hillary Clinton went on and on.

The Obama Balloon will pop and deflate. I can't wait to hear the screams of agony from his Cult Followers as they gnash their teeth, kick their feet, whining and crying when the reality of his loss smacks them upside their heads.

Obama Birth Certificate Forgery;
Lingering Questions About His Citizenship

Why won't Team Obama release his actual, true and certified Birth Certificate? Could it be because what his official website claims as his Birth Certificate is a forgery?

What his site has actually published is a Certificate Of Live Birth - a document that simply registers a vital statistic - which is not necessarily the same as a Birth Certificate.

I've questioned the legitimacy of his U.S. Citizenship here, noting that he may not be a U.S. Citizen because of his claims of being born in Hawaii whose statehood was never ratified.

There is also the issue of his so-called Certificate of Live Birth which, by all accounts, appears to be a forgery.

What kind of scandal is Obama trying to hide from the public? Why will he not release an actual and certified copy of his Birth Certificate?

Hot on the heels of this story is Velvet Hammer at Ironic Surrealism II:

    This may be the most damning evidence to date. Obama may be over the barrel now, once and for all.

    Janice Okubo, Director of Communications of the State of Hawaii Department of Health confirms all earlier suspicions of a forgery.

Velvet Hammer cites Israelinsider on the following:

    The image, purporting to come from the Hawaii Department of Health, has been the subject of intense skepticism in the blogosphere in the past two weeks. But now the senior spokesman of that Department has confirmed to Israel Insider what are the required features of a certified birth document — features that Obama’s purported “birth certificate” clearly lack.

Also doing due diligence on the forgery of Obama's so-called Birth Certificate is Doctor Bulldog:

    If you go to Obama’s website, fightthesmears.com, you will notice that he claims to have released his birth certificate and even provides a link with a copy of it for proof.

    However, if you look closely, you will notice that the font is problematic in that the only typewriter available at that time which Mrs. Bulldog and I could think of that would be able to duplicate such a font is the IBM Selectric which was introduced on… Drum roll please…. July 23, 1961 - Obama was born August 4th, 1961 and the birth certificate featured on Obama’s website was filed on August 6th, 1961…

    It seems odd to us that a Hospital in Hawaii would have had access to such a typewriter just a couple of weeks after its introduction…

Please visit both Ironic Surrealism II and Doc Bulldog and read their entire posts.

Something insidiously fishy is going on with why Obama cannot, will not and has not provided irrefutable documentation of his U.S. Citizenship and Birth. Could it be because he is not a U.S. citizen?

Maybe Dan Rather has some documents left over from his days at CBS that shed light on this?

Or, The Meccachurian Candidate can come clean by releasing his actual Birth Certificate. Don't hold your breath waiting for him to do this. Don't you know by now we are not to question or examine The Obamalith? We are asked to believe what he tells us, and behave accordingly.

The Obamalith. Just trust it. It will tell you what to do. Obey it. Question it not.

Ralph Nader: Obama Be Talkin' White

Barack Hussein Obama - The Illinois Muslim - well, yo'...he be talkin' all white gettin' in yo face, know what I'm sayin'?

At least that's what Independent Presidential Candidate Ralph Nader says. Rocky Mountain News:

    Independent presidential candidate Ralph Nader accused Sen. Barack Obama, the presumed Democratic Party nominee, of downplaying poverty issues, trying to "talk white" and appealing to "white guilt" during his run for the White House.

    Nader, a thorn in the Democratic Party's side since the 2000 presidential election, has taken various shots at Obama in recent days while ramping up his latest independent run for president.


    "There's only one thing different about Barack Obama when it comes to being a Democratic presidential candidate. He's half African-American," Nader said. "Whether that will make any difference, I don't know. I haven't heard him have a strong crackdown on economic exploitation in the ghettos. Payday loans, predatory lending, asbestos, lead. What's keeping him from doing that? Is it because he wants to talk white? He doesn't want to appear like Jesse Jackson?


    The Obama campaign had only a brief response, calling the remarks disappointing.

    Asked to clarify whether he thought Obama does try to "talk white," Nader said: "Of course".


    "He wants to show that he is not a threatening . . . another politically threatening African-American politician," Nader said. "He wants to appeal to white guilt. You appeal to white guilt not by coming on as black is beautiful, black is powerful. Basically he's coming on as someone who is not going to threaten the white power structure, whether it's corporate or whether it's simply oligarchic. And they love it. Whites just eat it up."

Mr. Nader couldn't be more correct. Whitey is eating up the guilt preached by The Obamalith. The whining cries coming from the Obama Camp reacting to Nader is proof that Nader has hit a nerve. The more frequent and loud the cries from Camp Obama, the more accurate are the allegations.

All Democrats behave in this same manner. The more accurate the charge leveled at them, the louder they scream, having conniption fits, the more they protest, the more they deny the charge. They know the truth hurts and this why they react how they do.

Real Liberals and Progressives would be supporting Nader in massive numbers. The Posing and Posturing Liberals and Progressives are supporting Obama.


Pelosi Supporting Fairness Doctrine

Nanny Pelosi Pumpkinhead, As relevant as last year's Jack-O-Lantern

Speakeress of The House, Nanny Pelosi, is ready to clamp down on Free Speech. The only speech she wants to permit is speech that agrees with her Liberal Agenda.

From Human Events:

    The speaker of the House made it clear to me and more than forty of my colleagues yesterday that a bill by Rep. Mike Pence (R.-Ind.) to outlaw the “Fairness Doctrine” (which a liberal administration could use to silence Rush Limbaugh, other radio talk show hosts and much of the new alternative media) would not see the light of day in Congress during ’08. In ruling out a vote on Pence’s proposed Broadcaster's Freedom Act, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D.-CA.) also signaled her strong support for revival of the “Fairness Doctrine” -- which would require radio station owners to provide equal time to radio commentary when it is requested.

    Experts say that the “Fairness Doctrine,” which was ended under the Reagan Administration, would put a major burden on small radio stations in providing equal time to Rush Limbaugh and other conservative broadcasters, who are a potent political force. Rather than engage in the costly practice of providing that time, the experts conclude, many stations would simply not carry Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and other talk show hosts who are likely to generate demands for equal time.


    “Do you personally support revival of the ‘Fairness Doctrine?’” I asked.

    “Yes,” [Pelosi] replied, without hesitation.

It's the Insane Liberal Clown Posse that wants to eliminate Free Speech, not the Conservatives as Liberals so often allege and on which they play The Fear Card.

The ILCP is so damn afraid of holes being poked into their lying, despicable messages that the only way they can try to control it is by reviving a primitive and archaic device like the Fairness Doctrine.

What's the matter ILCP, AirHead America not working out quite as you had hoped? Are ratings in the toilet for your propagandist networks of CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC and PBS? No one wants to hear your false rhetoric?

And the only way Peloshit and Company can retaliate is by silencing their critics? Why, how Marxist of them. Karl, Joe Lenin, Mao Tse Tung, Pol Pot and Adolf Hitler are applauding you from their graves.

Fossil Shows Move From Water To Land

The fossil of a 365-million-year-old species sheds new information on evolution. BBC:

    About one hundred million years before dinosaurs began to roam the Earth, Ventastega was to be found in the shallow waters and tidal estuaries of modern day Latvia.

    According to lead author, Professor Per Ahlberg, from Uppsala University, Sweden, this creature had the head of a tetrapod, an animal adapted to live on land. The body, though, was fish-like but with four primitive flippers.

    "From a distance, it would have looked like an alligator. But closer up, you would have noticed a real tail fin at the back end, a gill flap at the side of the head; also lines of pores snaking across head and body.

I dunno, the below image of the newly found fossil, to me, looks just like wrinkled, haggardly White House Press Corps fossil Helen Thomas.

Then again, I may be mistaken. And she doesn't look a day over 365 million years old, does she.

Obama Disses Ellison;
Obama Islamophobic?

Minnesota's Democrat Congressman, the first Muslim Congressman Keith al-Ellison, was asked by the Obama campaign to not appear at an Obama event in Iowa.

The reason given by the Obama staff was that Ellison might cause controversy for Obama, implying that it is because Ellison is a Muslim.

From the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

    As Sen. Barack Obama courted voters in Iowa in December, Rep. Keith Ellison, America's first Muslim congressman, stepped forward eagerly to help.

    Ellison said he believed that Obama's message of unity resonated deeply with American Muslims. He volunteered to speak on Obama's behalf at a mosque in Cedar Rapids, one of the nation's oldest Muslim enclaves. But before the rally could take place, aides to Obama asked Ellison to cancel the trip because it might stir controversy. Another aide appeared at Ellison's Washington office to explain.

    "I will never forget the quote," Ellison said, leaning forward in his chair as he recalled the aide's words. "He said, 'We have a very tightly wrapped message.'"

    When Obama began his presidential campaign, Muslim Americans from California to Virginia responded with enthusiasm, seeing him as a long-awaited champion of civil liberties, religious tolerance and diplomacy in foreign affairs. But more than a year later, many say, he has not returned their embrace.

    While the senator has visited churches and synagogues, he has yet to appear at a single mosque. Muslim and Arab-American organizations have tried repeatedly to arrange meetings with Obama, but officials with those groups say their invitations -- unlike those of their Jewish and Christian counterparts -- have been ignored. Last week, two Muslim women wearing head scarves were barred by campaign volunteers from appearing behind Obama at a rally in Detroit.

    In interviews, Muslim political and civic leaders said they understood that their support for Obama could be a problem for him at a time when some Americans are deeply suspicious of Muslims. Yet those leaders nonetheless expressed disappointment and even anger at the distance that Obama has kept from them.

    Muslims frustrated

    "This is the 'hope campaign,' this is the 'change campaign,'" said Ellison, a Minnesota Democrat. Muslims are frustrated, he added, that "they have not been fully engaged in it."


Obama, The Meccachurian Candidate, doesn't want to be associated with Islam because he claims that he's not a Muslim, that he is a Christian.

If The Obamalith is not, and has never been part of the religion of Islam - as he claims - then why is he so overly sensitive, going to such great lengths, to disassociate himself from it and its followers?

Methinks Obama doth protest too much. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too much.

I think we have a clear cut case of psychological projection with Obama's great desire in distancing himself from Islam.

Believe it or not - and I have ripped on Keith al-Ellison many times - I actually feel a little sorry for him for the way he was treated by the Obama campaign. But now, Mr. al-Ellison understands "the drill." It's the same reason why we see Obama distancing himself from, and not appearing with, Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton.

Kofi Annan Won't Go Away;
Calls For "Climate Justice"

The Always Defiant Kofi Annan

This fucker The former Secretary General of The United Nations Kofi Annan just won't go away. I never thought the world would be free from him after he left the UN, but he keeps popping up like a painful herpes zoster (not that I would know what that's like - I'm only guessing).

The unindicted and corrupt oil for food and cash for food former UN Sec Gen is calling for "Climate Justice" (whatever the hell that is). AFP:

    Former UN secretary general Kofi Annan on Tuesday called for 'climate justice', saying that it was polluters who should pay for the effects of climate change, and not the poorest and most vulnerable.

    He said funding should be made available to help disadvantaged communities adapt to the effects of global warming as he urged for the international community to focus on adaptation measures.

    "We must have climate justice. As an international community, we must recognise that the polluter must pay and not the poor and vulnerable," said Annan at the first high-level meeting of his new humanitarian forum.


    "We cannot allow the extra cost of adapting to climate change to be siphoned off from the ongoing poverty challenge. We should act immediately to provide them with additional funding and appropriate technical assistance," he said.

In other words, he is calling for the redistribution of wealth on a global scale, especially that of American and other successful countries' wealth to be redistributed. I bet he's a big fan of Marxism too.



Don Imus And Sharpton Reaction Hyperbole

Talk Radio Guru Don Imus is in trouble again with those who point the Racism Finger at everything. UPI:

    Radio shock jock Don Imus sought to clarify a racial remark he made about Adam "Pacman" Jones of the Dallas Cowboys, an African-American.

    While discussing Jones's desire to ditch his nickname Monday, Imus was told Jones has "been arrested six times since being drafted by Tennessee in 2005."

    Imus asked one of his on-air sidekicks, "What color is he?"

    "He's African-American," the co-star said.

    "Well, there you go," Politico quoted Imus as saying. "Now we know."

    Asked in an e-mail message what he had intended by his remark, Imus wrote that he meant Jones "was being picked on because he's black," The New York Times reported.

The always available and ready to point the finger of racism, Rev. Al "Big Al" Sharpton reacted in a totally predictable manner. Dallas News:

    "It has been reported to me that statements were made by Mr. Imus this morning and National Action Network has monitored his show since his return. I find the inference of his remark disturbing because it plays into stereotypes. Any use of stereotypes is always counterproductive. We will determine in the next day or so whether or not his remark warrants direct action on our part as we did in April of last year."

Uh, yeah, the above statement from Sharpton, the man who supported the lying Tawana Brawley's concocted story of gang rape and
whose court case included Sharpton's inflammatory words. CNN:

    Former prosecutor Steven Pagones said Monday that his victory over the Rev. Al Sharpton and two other advisers to Tawana Brawley in his racially charged, $395 million lawsuit was bittersweet.

    Speaking outside the Dutchess County Courthouse after the jury's decision, Pagones said Sharpton, Alton Maddox Jr. and C. Vernon Mason had "hurt a lot of people."

    The jury found Sharpton liable for making seven defamatory statements about Pagones, Maddox for two and Mason for one. Pagones, a former assistant county prosecutor, is white; the defendants are black.

    "They hurt race relations," Pagones said. "We have enough problems in society. We don't need people like Mason and Maddox and Sharpton screaming out false allegations and creating further hatred."

    A jury of four whites and two blacks ruled that Sharpton, Maddox and Mason defamed Pagones in accusing him of raping black teen-ager Tawana Brawley in 1987.

Imus' comments were clearly sarcasm. I grasped the sarcasm immediately upon hearing the audio clip the first time. I suppose there are many people, of all colors, who have a hard time grasping sarcasm. This doesn't mean that what they hear is racist.

Without the Race Card to play, would Sharpton have a career?



Ed Schultz Reacts To Don Imus

Liberal Radio Talker, Big, Fat Dumb, Wife-Beating, Drunk While Hunting and Shooting and Killing His Own Dog Ed Schultz once again set himself up as a moral authority.

This time, it was the comments by
Radio Talk Guru Don Imus. UPI:

    Radio shock jock Don Imus sought to clarify a racial remark he made about Adam "Pacman" Jones of the Dallas Cowboys, an African-American.

    While discussing Jones's desire to ditch his nickname Monday, Imus was told Jones has "been arrested six times since being drafted by Tennessee in 2005."

    Imus asked one of his on-air sidekicks, "What color is he?"

    "He's African-American," the co-star said.

    "Well, there you go," Politico quoted Imus as saying. "Now we know."

    Asked in an e-mail message what he had intended by his remark, Imus wrote that he meant Jones "was being picked on because he's black," The New York Times reported.

Reacting to Imus' comments and the above story - at approximately 25 minutes into the first hour of his radio program on Tuesday, June 24, 2008 - Big Fat Dumb Ed said, "sooner or later we render judgment [on people]."

Wife Beater/Abuser and Dog Killer: Big, Fat, Dumb Ed Schultz

Who is Ed Schultz to talk about rendering judgment on anybody?

Ed Schultz , the wife-beater, wife-abuser? Ask his first wife Maureen Zimmerman, or those close to her, about how Ed used to beat her.

Ed Schultz, the man who so delicately labeled the deceased Anna Nicole Smith, "a dead whore."

Ed Schultz, the man who while on a hunting trip - in a drunken stupor - shoots and kills his own dog.

Big Fat Dumb Ed sets himself up as the arbiter of Moral Authority and Judge of Human Behavior?

I told you these Liberals are absolute hypocrites of the worst kind. Besides, isn't it The Liberal and Progressive Crowd that claims to not be the crowd of judging others? Oh Pu-lease - the hypocrisy stench is vomit inducing.

Ed Schultz has no business rendering judgment or throwing stones at anyone.

Demand For Gas Falls, Prices Increase

But - But - But - The Insane Liberal Clown Posse tells us that if we use less gasoline then the price will decrease.

Why - The Insane Liberal Clown Posse couldn't be WONG, could they?

Demand Falls, Prices Rise. Bloomberg:

    U.S. gasoline demand fell 2.7 percent last week, a sign motorists are cutting back on vacation plans as pump prices touch records, a MasterCard Inc. report today showed.

    Consumers purchased an average 9.45 million barrels of gasoline a day in the week ended June 20, down from 9.71 million a year earlier, MasterCard, the second-biggest credit-card company, said in its weekly SpendingPulse report. It was the ninth consecutive week of declines from the year-earlier period.


    The national average pump price for regular gasoline rose 3 cents to $4.07 a gallon, up 36 percent from a year earlier and the highest in data going back to October 2006, the report showed. Prices on the West Coast rose 7 cents to an average $4.45 a gallon.

    The report from Purchase, New York-based MasterCard was assembled by MasterCard Advisors, the company's consulting arm, and is based on credit card swipes and cash and check payments at about 140,000 U.S. gasoline stations.

    The Energy Department estimated demand of 9.25 million barrels a day for the week ended June 13. MasterCard said demand was 9.1 million barrels a day for the same period. The government's next petroleum report is set for release tomorrow.

The above FACTS (you Liberals aren't familiar at all with that word, "fact", are you?) goes hand in hand with the Market Watch story from March where Americans drove 11 BILLION miles less yet...yet...the price of gasoline continues to increase.

But - But - But - The LeftTards said if we use less and conserve, the cost of gasoline would decrease?

Response: Why in the hell would anyone believe anything said by a Liberal?

Obama Plays The Race Fear Card

Barack Hussein Obama aka The Obamalith aka Ted Kennedy's Poodle aka The Meccachurian Candidate aka The Illinois Muslim (did I forget any of the terms that I have deemed the inexperienced and terrorist-sympathizing Democrat candidate?) gave a speech in Florida where he played The Race Fear Card manufacturing and implying unfounded Republican racism and bigotry in his attempts to win the White House. The Telegraph:

    "We know what kind of campaign they're going to run," the Illinois senator said at a fundraising event in Jacksonville, Florida.

    "They're going to try 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?'"


    "They're going to try to make me into a scary guy. They're even trying to make Michelle into a scary person. Right? And so that drumbeat - 'We're not sure if he's patriotic or not; we're not sure if he is too black.'

    "I don't know, before I wasn't black enough. 'Now he might be too black'. We don't know whether he's going to socialise, well, who knows what."

The only persons responsible for raising any questions on the issues that he brings up is himself and his wife,
Michelle The Dangerous Washerwoman.

And we can add his racist, sexist, America-hating pastors Rev. Jeremiah Wright and Father Michael Pfleger.

And we can add his connections to Tony Rezko and arms-dealer Nadhmi Auchi, (whom Obama "toasted") and others that he has associated with during his life that begs all types of questions.

And we can add that Obama has done fundraising for the terrorist group Hamas, has said he would meet with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad without any pre-conditions and yet - until recently - Obama said he had no desire to travel to Iraq and meet face-to-face with General David Petraeus.

And we can add that Obama is no friend to Israel, that instead he is terrorist-friendly. We can add that his friends are domestic terrorist Weather Underground members William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn.

And we can add that his own campaign is afraid to have him pictured with people who dress in traditional Muslim clothing by booting them from being seen at his campaign appearances

And we can add that, despite Obama's best intent to claim not to be a Muslim, that his own half-brother Malik Obama says that Barack is indeed a Muslim.

And we can add that Obama cannot be trusted with America's national security and keeping us safe for being one of a small majority who voted against the Iraq War.

It is Obama who displays his own behavior of being anti-American when he refuses to put his hand over his heart during the National Anthem.

It is Obama who refused to wear a U.S. Flag lapel pin.

It is Obama who permits his staffers to hang Che Guevara flags and posters in his campaign offices.

Heck, IT IS OBAMA'S OWN DEMOCRAT PARTY members talking about his connection to terrorist groups!

It is Obama, his wife, his campaign gurus, his staffers and his supporters who have brought all this upon themselves.

But now, The Meccachurian Candidate plays the Fear Card of Racism in trying to scare people into believing that it is the Republican Party that will try to do this?

It appears The Illinois Muslim has erased from his memory that it was the Republicans who passed Civil Rights in the 1960s, not the Democrats who fought tooth and nail against it.

It appears The Illinois Muslim has erased from his memory that it was Democrat Attorney General Robert Kennedy who ordered the illegal wire-tapping and surveillance of Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.

And it is Obama's fellow Democrat Senator Robert Byrd who belonged to, and was a proud member of, the Ku Klux Klan.

Obama hits all the correct Talking Points of Advanced Liberal Mantra:

1) Deny...
2) Lie...
3) When caught, blame the other guy

Is Obama desperately pathetic or what? He will self-destruct because of over-confidence and arrogance well before the November Election.

Enron Loophole

This bill providing for the so-called Enron Loophole was signed into law in year 2000 when Bill Clinton was the president.

Now, if it had been former President George H.W. Bush who had signed this bill, oh my - oh my - how the feces would have hit the fan with the Lefties screaming like their private parts were caught in a bear trap. But instead, Bubba The Rapist gets a Free Pass. How oddly convenient.

The "Loophole" exempts energy speculators who make trades electronically from US regulation.

The Democrats, the Insane Liberal Clown Posse and The Meccachurian Candidate (that would be The Illinois Muslim aka Hussein Obama) are now trying to place the blame for the Enron Loophole on Republicans and former Senator Phil Gramm.

But the Dems are lying - I know, I know, when aren't they - in trying to pass blame onto the Republicans and Phil Gramm.

Here's a few facts for the always fact-challenged Leftists about Enron:

* Enron filed bankruptcy on December 2, 2001.

* This mean George W. Bush had been in office for less than 12 full months.

* This means that Enron was screwing over customers, investors and employees well before 2001, which means that while Enron was doing this Bill Clinton was the president and Bill Richardson was the head of The Department of Energy, as was Federico Peña the Energy Secretary preceding Richardson.

Where were Clinton,
Peña and Richardson while Enron was running rampant and pulling their shenanigans? Well, Clinton, Richardson and Peña were all AWOL.

Here are more Enron Fun Facts:

* For six consecutive years from 1996 to 2001 Enron was named by Fortune Magazine as America's Most Innovative Company. Hmmmmmm...which administration was in the White House in 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999 and year 2000? Whew - I'm going to have to perform some very studious research for the answer. Do you think Enron was screwing over customers, employees and investors during these years, or did they just suddenly decide to do it after January 20, 2001? Well, the facts say Enron was pulling their shenanigans during all these years. Please, don't believe me, look it up for yourselves.

* In year 2000, Fortune named Enron as one of the 100 Best Companies To Work For in America. Who was the president in 2000? One of the reasons Enron was included in the Best 100 list was for being a great company for employees, their pension plan and a brilliant core of managers and executives. Who was the president in 2000? Again, I'm going to have to pursue some very studious research for the answer.

* Enron and its accounting firm, Arthur Anderson, perpetuated bookkeeping and accounting fraud during the 1990s, during the Clinton Administration, during
Peña's and Richardson's tenure at The Department of Energy.

The Clinton Administration did nothing other than leave a mess for a new administration to deal with and now The Lefties try to paint the Bush Administration as the sole responsible party for the Enron debacle. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Oh - and hey - I have another question for the EnviroTards: how are all the energy wind-farms that Enron built doing these days? Are they providing relief to us from the energy problems we're having? Oh, they're not? Huh. Gee. Whoda thunk it?

What the Dems are doing with the "Enron loophole" is their typical three point plan, the plan they use when they refuse to accept responsibility for their own action and inaction:

1) Deny...
2) Lie...
3) When caught, blame the other guy

This is all the Democrats know how to do and they do it well.
