Richardson Lowers Obama's Definition Of The Rich But NY Times Lowers It Too

The Denver Post

This morning, New Mexico governor Bill Richardson, and enthusiastic supporter of Barack Obama, continued the downward ratchet of the level of income at which Barack Obama intends to confiscate income.

Obama started at #250,000, then said $200,000.

Joe Biden then dropped the bar to $150,000 three days ago.

And now, Bill Richardson is telling us that anyone making over $120,000 will be penalized by an Obama administration.

OH but wait...........Look at this too:

For Incomes Below $100,000, a Better Tax Break in Obama’s Plan

New York Times

Independent analyses of the presidential candidates’ tax proposals show that those who make less than $250,000 a year would not see their taxes raised under Senator Barack Obama’s plans. Further, Mr. Obama would generally cut taxes more than Senator John McCain would for households with incomes less than $100,000 a year.

Wild Thing's comment.......

This feels like being at an auction.... like I have seen on TV. hahaha

First Richardson, and now the Tiimes....Do I hear $75,000?

Going, going........

Obama's Campaign Worker Speaks Out!!

sarah p Says:
October 27, 2008 at 5:04 am

Ok, I want to clear my conscious a little. Hopefully you could make a blog post to help some fellow clinton supporters out.

I work for a campaign and can’t wait for this week to be over.

I was doing it for a job. I was not a fan of any candidate but over time grew to love HRC.

The internal campaign idea is to twist, distort, humiliate and finally dispirit you.

We pay people and organize people to go to all the online sites and “play the part of a clinton or mccain supporter who just switched our support for obama”

We do this to stifle your motivation and to destroy your confidence.

We did this the whole primary and it worked.

Sprinkle in mass vote confusion and it becomes bewildering. Most people lose patience and just give up on their support of a candidate and decide to just block out tv, news, websites, etc.

This surprisingly has had a huge suppressing movement and vote turnout issues.

Next, we infiltrate all the blogs and all the youtube videos and overwhelm the voting, the comments, etc. All to continue this appearance of overwhelming world support.

People makes posts to the effect that the world has “gone mad”

Thats the intention. To make you feel stressed and crazy and feel like the world is ending.

We have also had quite a hand in skewing many many polls, some we couldn’t control as much as we would have liked. But many we have spoiled over. Just enough to make real clear politics look scarey to a mccain supporter. Its worked, alough the goal was to appear 13-15 points ahead.

see, the results have been working. People tend to support a winner, go with the flow, become “sheeple”

The polls are roughly 3-5 points in favor of Barack. Thats due to our inflation of the polls and pulling in the sheeple.

Our donors, are the same people who finance the MSM. Their interests are tied, Barack then tends to come across as teflon. Nothing sticks. And trust, there were meetings with Fox news. The goal was to blunt them as much as possible. Watch Bill Oreilly he has become much more diplomatic and “fair and balanced” and soft. Its because he wants to retain the #1 spot on cable news and to do that he has to have access to the Obama campaign and we worked hard at stringing him a long and keeping him soft for an interview swap. It worked and now he is anticipating more access. So he is playing it still soft.

This is why nothing sticks.

The operation is massive, the goal is to paint a picture that is that of a winner, regardless of the results.

There is no true inauguration draft or true grant park construction going on. There will be a party, but we are boasting beyond the truth to make it seem like the election is wrapped up.

Our goal is to continue to make you lose your moral. We worked hard at persuasion and paying off and timing and playing the right political numbers to get key republican endorsements to make it seem even more like it was over and the world was coming to an end for you all.

There is a huge staff of people working around the clock, watching every site, blogs, etc. We flood these sites. We have had a goal to overwhelm.

The truth is here. I could go on and on, but you get the picture.

I am saying this because I know HRC was better for the country, and now realize this. I was too late by the time I connected to her. To me Barack was just a cool young dude that seemed like a star. I didn’t know him or his policies, but now I understand more than I care to and I realize his interests are more for him, and the DNC and all working like puppets with dean. I always thought a president wanted the better good for the country. The end result I see is everyone dependent on the government, this means more and more people voting for the DNC. This means the future is forever altered. I don’t see this as america, so I am now supporting John Mccain.

Sarah Palin is a huge threat, and our campaign has feared her like you can’t imagine. If it seems unfair how she has been treated, well its because she has had a team working round the clock to make her look like a fool.

this is a big conspiracy and I am so shocked that its not realized.

We released a little blurb the other day that the Obama campaign was already working on reelection and now putting our efforts towards 2012. This was to make it seem like it was above us to continue caring about 2008. Trust me, its a lie. David is very smart, but its a sticky ugly not very truthful kind of intelligence.

Its not over yet, but I think the machine is working. And its a hill to climb.

I will be quitting my post on nov 5th and my vote will be for John Mccain. Fortunately, my position has been a marketing position and I don’t feel I had any part of anything I would feel guilty for. But I look forward to getting out of this as the negativity and environment upsets me.

I wish you all well, and goodluck.

PS my name is not really sarah. but I am a female and I understand your plight.

Wild Thing's comment..........

I am so glad Mark sent this to me. This is exactly the kind of thing in part and in whole that the left has done in past elections but nothing in comparison to what they have been donig in this one. It has become even bigger then the left has ever done before. Maybe because this time they have more funds due to Obama's huge amount of backing from Arabs and other places, like Soros etc. But it is huge and it also explains a lot of what we have been seeing.

....Thank you so much Mark for sending this to me.

William Ayers' Forgotten Communist Manifesto: Prairie Fire

William Ayers' forgotten communist manifesto: Prairie Fire


I recommend going to this site and reading the page. It is a quick read, even though it hs a lot of information.

Ann Coulter on Hannity & Colmes discussing about Obama's radical associations and friends and how the media covers for Obama.

Hannity Reveals Shocking Connection between Ayers and Obama

Obama's friend Bill Ayers and his wife wrote a book dedicated to the man who shot and killed Robert Kennedy... the same friend who held fundraisers for Obama a few years ago.

The American people that voted for Obama should be rounded up and imprisoned for putting the country in danger like this. This is a communist takeover of America.

Wild Thing's comment..........

Shaking my head...... never ever in my life, could I have imagined someone like Barack Hussein Obama would be a Senator and then be allowed to run for President. Being part black has nothing to do with it. Obama is a communist and his associations mark him as an enemy of our country.

Obama's Anti-Israel Islamic Pals

Obama's Anti-Israel Islamic Pals

Israel National News

by Sammy Benoit

Khalidi is just one of many.

The controversy surrounding Senator Barack Obama's friendship with Rashid Khalidi, and the tape being suppressed by the Los Angeles Times, is overshadowing the important fact that Khalidi is just one of many Israel-hating Islamic characters that Obama has allied himself with.

For example, these people are connected directly to his Senate office or campaign:

* Cynthia K. Miller, treasurer of his Senate campaign, is a member of a member Louis Farrakhan's Nation of Islam.

* Jennifer Mason, Obama's Director of Constituent Services, is also a member of the Nation of Islam.

* Other Nation of Islam members, including consultant Shakir Muhammad, held important roles in the Obama state Senate campaign.

And they had their influence. When Obama first ran for the US Senate, he gave militant responses to the Chicago Jewish News about Israel. Obama denounced Israel's fence, which he called a "wall" and "barrier to peace." He favored working with Yasser Arafat. When members of the Chicago Jewish community circulated his responses, Obama said that the answers were not his positions, but the work of a low-level intern. He submitted new answers. But that was a lie, an insider says. In fact, they were the work of Obama's Policy Director, Audra Wilson. Moreover, Obama told the insider that he blamed the Mideast conflict on the Jews: "Barack told me that he felt that the Jewish community was too inflexible, and that was why the situation in the Mideast could not be resolved." (Source: Debbie Schlussel)

There are also some "bigger fish" in Obama's Crew of Anti-Israel Friends:

* The Khalid al-Mansour connection: According to former Manhattan Borough president Percy Sutton, Mansour "was raising money for" Obama's expenses at Harvard Law School. Mansour, a Black American (né Don Warden), became adviser to Saudi prince Al-Walid Bin-Talal, CAIR's largest individual donor. Mansour holds standard Islamist views: he absolves the Islamist government in Sudan of sponsoring slavery; he denies a Jewish tie to Jerusalem; and he wrote a booklet titled "Americans Beware! The Zionist Plot Against S. Arabia." (Both Obama and Mansour deny Sutton's account.)

* The Kenny Gamble (also known as Luqman Abdul-Haqq) connection: Gamble, a once-prominent pop music producer, cut the ribbon to the Obama campaign headquarters housed in a South Philadelphia building he owns. Gamble is an Islamist who buys large swaths of real estate to create Muslim-only residential areas. Also, as the self-styled "emir" of the United Muslim Movement, he has many links to Islamist organizations, including CAIR and the Muslim Alliance in North America. (MANA's "emir" is Siraj Wahhaj, an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.)

* The Mazen Asbahi connection: The Obama campaign's first Muslim outreach coordinator resigned after it came to light that he had served on the board of a subsidiary of the Saudi-sponsored North American Islamic Trust with Jamal Said, an unindicted co-conspirator in the 2007 Hamas funding trial. Asbahi has ties to CAIR's Chicago and Detroit offices, to the Islamic Society of North America, yet another unindicted co-conspirator in the Hamas funding trial, and to other Islamist organizations.

* The Minha Husaini connection: The campaign's second Muslim outreach coordinator has an Islamist background, having served as an intern in the Muslim Public Service Network. Immediately upon her appointment by Obama, she met with a group of about 30 Muslims, including such notorious figures as CAIR's Nihad Awad, the Muslim American Society's Mahdi Bray, who has publicly supported Hamas and Hizbullah, and Johari Abdul Malik of the Dar al-Hijrah Mosque in Falls Church, Virginia, who has advised American Muslims: "You can blow up bridges, but you cannot kill people who are innocent on their way to work." (Source: Daniel Pipes) One prominent Palestinian-American will tell you that Obama is hiding his true feelings toward the Jewish State.

So, how can Senator Obama be pro-Israel and have so many anti-Israel buddies? Well, one prominent Palestinian-American will tell you that Obama is hiding his true feelings toward the Jewish State.
Ali Abunimah is a pro-Arab journalist and founder of the Electronic Intifada website. He will tell you that Senator Obama is full of crap when he says that he is pro-Israel: "If disappointing, given his historically close relations to Palestinian-Americans, Obama's about-face is not surprising. He is merely doing what he thinks is necessary to get elected."
Abunimah says that Obama has long been a friend of the Palestinian community, but he knows where the money is. He has changed his position because those in the pro-Israel camp (American Jews?) have the money to get him elected.
So, folks, you see you really don't need the LA Times video to figure out what Senator Obama said at that dinner. It was probably something horribly anti-Israel, like, "Israel has no God-given right to occupy Palestine" or that there's been "genocide against the Palestinian people by Israelis." Either way, it is clear that those who love the Jewish State should not be voting for him next Tuesday.

Wild Thing's comment..........

This is a good article, I know there is a lot around the internet about the protests at the LA Times and when I saw this article I thought it was important to bring these things up as well.

To think Obama would favor Israel and Jews over his Muslim connection and his very close ties to the Nation of Islam is kidding themselves.

Hope for the change of the hope of the change!

Wild Thing's comment.........

Remember the rock group The Decemberists that were openers for that rallty Obama had in Portland, where he supposedly had something like 75,000 people attend? That rock group always plays "the old Soviet National anthem" in its entirety before they come on stage. I think that is where Glenn Beck got the idea to make this video. He or whoever did it for him did a good job on it.

Obama's sheep would be more then happy with what is seen in this video. They might even be hoping for it, at least some of them.

Barack Obama's Plans To Change America

The Plot to Overthrow the United States of America

Barrack Obama has dark plans for this country

When asked recently where Obama plans on getting money for the vast number of plans he has he has said bringing the troops home and not spending the money we are spending on the war. He will rip off our military financially, stop funding them is what I get out of this.

All the other politicians that I can remember they all had a past, friends from childhood, people that spoke up that worked with them, family that actually showed up at the DNC convention or in the news. Obama has had none of this. His family from either side did not come to the convention, and he could have paid their way there is he wanted them there. Even when he went to Hawaii, his wife did not go with him to see his WHITE grandmother, nor did Obama's daughters go to see their grandma. How weird is that.

He was a community organizer and yet have any of us heard from people in his Chicago hood that have come forth to tell us how wonderful Obama was and how he helped them as a community organizer. NONE that I have heard about.

We found out Obama has a brother living in a hut and this week we found out he has an Aunt living in the slums. But Barack and Michelle have enough money to help these relatives if they wanted to. Obama speaks of wanting to help those making less then the middle class income and yet his own relatives live in less then acceptable conditions and he does not extend a hand to help them.

The DNC and their minions react with almost rage when we bring up Ayers like it is no big deal and how wonderful Ayers is now to be a Professor according to them. But Ayers is a Professor of anti-American things and is not doing harmless teaching.

We have seen the many ties Obama has to American hating groups, friends that would be or have been listed to be watched by our government. The Black Panthers, Frank Davis a known communist was on a list by our government and this man was a huge mentor of Obama's.

This video has all of that and more, it is well worth watching and one that really should be sent out to others. The video will have things on it you have already seen but there are also new things and added information.

What Daniel Pipes has to say is VERY interesting it is further into the video.

PA Arabs in Gaza Campaigning for Barack Obama

PA Arabs in Gaza Campaigning for Barack Obama


A Palestinian Authority newspaper reported on Sunday that Arab residents of Gaza are randomly calling Americans at home in hopes of persuading them to vote for Democratic candidate Senator Barack Obama in next month's US presidential election.

The article in Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, first noted and translated by Palestinian Media Watch, quotes a young man from the Hamas-controlled Gaza region as saying, "We dial random numbers and try to call people in the United States without knowing their identity or their affiliation...." He reportedly uses "Internet sites that allow making free calls... in order to use them for the campaign supporting Obama."
The Al-Hayat Al-Jadida article said, "Most of the Palestinians feel hatred towards USA, whose administrations have always stood by Israel...." The Gaza-based Obama campaigner, Ibrahim Abu Jayyab, "said that a large number of Palestinians dislike their activity..." Those PA residents "do not see any difference between the American politicians Obama and Republican candidate Sen. John McCain because of the hostility that they feel towards America," the report explained.
"But Abu Jayyab's hope is that their activity will have some impact in support of Obama," according to the newspaper report.

Previous Support From Gaza Abu Jayyab's freelance phone campaign for Obama in the last weeks of the American presidential race has not been the first time the Illinois senator has gotten such help. An Al-Jazeera TV report during the Democratic primaries featured Abu Jayyab as well, when he was busy organizing calls to American voters to persuade them to vote for Obama over then-candidate Sen. Hillary Clinton.

Other types of assistance have also been forthcoming from Gaza. In July of this year, Pamela Geller of the Atlas Shrugs blog revealed documents purporting to show that the Obama campaign received nearly $30,000 from two brothers living in Rafiah, in Hamas-controlled Gaza, during 2007.

Earlier, during an April 2008 interview with WABC radio and WorldNetDaily, Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh's Gaza-based political advisor Ahmed Yousef said, "Actually, we like Mr. Obama. We hope he will win the election and I do believe he is like John Kennedy, great man with great principle."
At the time, McCain commented, "I think it is very clear... why Hamas would not want me to be president of the United States, so if Senator Obama is favored by Hamas, I think people can make judgments accordingly."

Obama campaign spokespeople excoriated McCain and noted repeatedly that Obama has called Hamas a terrorist organization worthy of condemnation. In an interview with The Atlantic shortly thereafter, Obama warned people in the Middle East who were enthusiastic over his candidacy not to be "confused about my unyielding support for Israel's security."

Gun Sales Increase Could Predict Election


We’re utterly fascinated by this.

In 2004, we don’t remember hearing about anyone scared Kerry was going to take their guns away - and we worked Pennsylvania for Kerry (Pittsburgh area). There were a lot of gun shops and firing ranges there, and we never heard anything about people stocking up on guns because they were scared Kerry was going to try to take them away.

Obama is perceived as more liberal than Kerry, and in fact the most liberal Democrat that’s run for president in as long as anyone can remember. Biden as VP makes this the most liberal ticket that Democrats have ever fielded. There is nothing about it that puts the bitter, gun-and-relgion-people-who-are-apathetic-to-those-not-like-them living in Pennsylvania at ease.

Absolutely nothing.

In fact, the thought of Obama becoming president freaks these people out. So much so that they’re stocking up on firearms.

We just don’t see how this can bode well for Obama. These are “Reagan Democrats” and Republicans. They’re Clinton Democrats too. And they recoil at the thought of an Obama administration.

Have you ever heard of anything like this? We checked, and can’t see any evidence of this in past elections — where the Democrat so freaked rural, working class, sportsman types out that they felt compelled to stock up on weapons to protect themselves.

We think this is a piece of a larger puzzle…one that’s becoming much more clear as we inch closer to November 4th:

(1) Democrats like us at HillBuzz are working with Republicans for the first time in our lives to elect John McCain/Sarah Palin because we do not like or trust Obama/Biden.

(2) Hillary Democrats not openly working for McCain are silently voting for him — and voting Republican for the first time in their lives in most cases.

(3) Early voting has not met Obama’s expectations — Republicans are tied or ahead in most states, and nowhere is Obama enjoying blowout advantages he claimed he’d have.

(4) In all states, there is a marked “enthusiasm gap” between support for Obama and support remembered for Kerry in 2004 or Gore in 2000…lack of yard signs, stickers, posters, and excitement to vote for Obama, despite what the media claims.

(5) Gun owners afraid of Obama, and stocking up on weapons because they are that freaked out by the thought of anyone voting for him.

We’d love your thoughts on that last one, as we think it could be a cultural barometer like the Family Circle cookie baking contest or Halloween mask sales — something that shows a large scale cultural like or dislike of a candidate.

All of these anecdotal signs point to a McCain win…with those gun sales being the most fascinating of all.

Because those gun owners are the heart of the country. If Obama hasn’t won them over, and instead seems to have driven them away, screaming, then we just don’t see how he wins.

Wild Thing's comment.........

Well yes, what does the left expect when they nominate a Marxist Barack Hussein Obama. Like the article from Hillary's Buzz says even some Democrats as well don't want their guns taken away and not all of them are as left as Obama, Pelosi, Reid and others pushing the communist, Marxist agenda on our country. Add in all the Democrats that are upset, rightly so about their vote literally being stolen from them by Obama and the DNC.

Look at this below, it is very telling of how people on the left (Democrats) have reacted to Obama as the candidate.

If you notice, Barack Obama keeps his distance from the American public and does not let them question him one on one. The few instances he's done it, town hall meetings, have been disastrous and he ends up stuttering a bullshit answer.

Actor Robert Davi and Actor and Sen. Fred Thompson Rally for McCain/Palin

Fred Thompson stumps for John McCain with Actor Robert Davi


With less than a week before the election and the polls tightening between the presidential candidates, former Sen. Fred Thompson had one message Wednesday for Berks County Republicans about their nominee, John McCain.

"He's a real closer; you're going to see that," Thompson said. "Don't let the mainstream media and the Democrats ... tell us the election is over."

A lawyer and actor who appeared in "Diehard II" and played District Attorney Arthur Branch on TV's "Law & Order," Thompson is touring on McCain's Straight Talk Express bus with actor Robert Davi, who played a heavy in "Diehard."

Thompson said Obama is asking Americans to put aside every principle they have to elect him.
As an example, he pointed to a 2001 National Public Radio interview when, he said, Obama wished there were language in the Constitution allowing the government to redistribute wealth.
Thompson said the real Obama is not being portrayed in the media.
"The mainstream media is so deep in his pocket, they'll never dig themselves out," he said.

Robert Davi doing the voiceovers for some of McCain/Palin videos


Robert Davi a rare breed, a Republican actor in liberal Hollywood. Right now Davi is starring in the anti-far-left "American Carol,"

Robert Davi comments on the Republican National Convention from backstage at the Xcel Center in St. Paul Minnesota.

Robert Davi: Michael Moore Harms America

This is a GREAT interview of Robert Davi, he talks about our military, Veterans, liberal Hollywood, Sept. 11, being a Republican and many things. --- Wild Thing

A Hollywood Heavy for Bush
By Lee Kaplan | October 12, 2004

Today, many Hollywood celebrities use their fame to air their Leftist political views. Johnny Depp whines about America and lives in France. Sean Penn travels to Iraq to provide sound bites for Saddam. America is attacked and Tim Robbins, Susan Sarandon, and Janeane Garofalo attack America as the root cause of anti-American hate. Michael Moore produces a propaganda film for the enemy and the cinema community gives him an award.

A few very brave entertainment industry figures who still appreciate their country and what it represents have stood up to the crowd. One such is Robert Davi. Since his debut opposite Frank Sinatra in “Contract on Cherry Street,” Davi has starred in over 60 films, appearing opposite some of Hollywood’s most notable stars, including Clint Eastwood, Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger. He’s worked with directors Steven Speilberg, Paul Verhoeven, Michael Ritchie, Richard Donner and Blake Edwards. Many consider Davi one of the premier James Bond villains for his portrayal of the Columbian drug lord, Franz Sanchez, in “License to Kill.” He has also appeared in “Goonies, “Diehard,” and the groundbreaking NBC television series, “Profiler.”

Recently, Davi rescued a young girl from a fire and saved her life. KNX radio in Los Angeles recognized his heroism with its Citizen of the Week Award. Also this year, he received the Royal Court of the Golden Lion Award from the Sons of Italy for his work helping children through I Safe America (, a children’s Internet safety organization for which he is the national spokesperson.

On November 11-14, Davi will join fellow conservatives at the four-day Restoration Weekend in Boca Raton, Florida. Sponsored by the Center for the Study of Popular Culture, the weekend features Senators Zell Miller, Jeff Sessions, John Sunnunu and Jim Bunning, Human Rights hero Natan Sharansky, Swift Boat vet John O'Neill, Vietnam hero Bud Day, pundits Dick Morris and Pat Caddell, and conservative writers Michelle Malkin, Victor Davis Hanson and David Horowitz.

I caught up with Davi as he prepared for the shooting of his newest film, “Gilgamesh,” a pre-biblical epic in which he stars alongside Peter O’Toole and Omar Sharif. We discussed Hollywood’s transformation into a bastion of the left.

KAPLAN: Many outspoken liberal celebrities in Hollywood have created the image that the town is dominated by the Left. Why do there seem to be fewer overtly outspoken actors and show-business personalities on the Right today?

DAVI: During the 1930’s, you had the Group Theater, in New York, that included a lot of members who were politically Marxist/Leninist. There was a different overall sentiment at the time however. World War II inspired a strong patriotism among Hollywood celebrities and American society in general. Then, in the 1950’s there was the period of McCarthyism and the Red Scare that made a lot of people nervous, so they were less vocal than we see today. In the 1960’s, Noam Chomsky began his anti-American campaign, as David Horowitz has outlined in his recent book, The Anti-Chomsky Reader. That’s a fantastic book. When I hear other Hollywood celebrities like Janeane Garofalo speak about America, she sounds just like Chomsky.

KAPLAN: I usually find that people like her are not that knowledgeable. They should read Horowitz’s book.

DAVI: They’re knowledgeable and unknowledgeable. They should read all of David Horowitz’s books. When they speak, they not only denigrate President Bush but America also. When Garofalo is speaking, her words convey a strong anti-American sentiment. What I hear from them is this Chomsky-like revisionist propaganda that always attacks America first. It’s an attack on America without any historical perspective or reference, always blaming America for the ills of the world. It’s always ignoring or excusing the atrocities committed by Communists and other adversaries of the Untied States. Even a discussion of slavery, a five-thousand-year-old institution, somehow ends up as an attack on America. Slavery was certainly not an American invention. America fought a civil war to get rid of slavery and became a better country because of it. Were there post-slavery race problems? So we had the Civil Rights movement. That is what America is really all about.

In the 1960’s John F. Kennedy was able to galvanize society—and Hollywood followed suit. The Civil Rights movement was a protest, but in a way that strengthened America. The revisionists ignore the positive and distort what Kennedy stood for. John Kennedy was a Zell Miller Democrat.

KAPLAN: Why does it seem there are fewer conservatives speaking out today in Hollywood?

DAVI: That’s the second difference. Back then you had the studio system. Actors were under contract and under the control of the studio management. Many of those studio heads were immigrants who escaped from undemocratic societies and revered America. Arnold Schwarzenegger spoke about America as an immigrant society to be revered for its democratic principles at the Republican Convention. Today there’s a different tone in Hollywood because power is in different hands. Some actors and celebrities wield their own power today.

KAPLAN: You mean like Sean Penn practicing foreign policy by going to Iraq, or Johnny Depp saying he prefers France to America because of America’s politics?

DAVI: I think there’s a fear today in Hollywood of coming forward as a conservative. I find it interesting that the Screen Actors Guild made a statement a few months ago that speeches made by members with left-leaning messages should not be ostracized. I found that odd that the Guild should be afraid of conservatives when today in Hollywood we are a minority. The statement seemed designed to distance them from conservative points of view.

KAPLAN: What do you think about the election and how Hollywood is reacting to it?

DAVI: There is an almost visceral prejudice against George W. Bush by many in Hollywood, bordering on being totally irrational.

KAPLAN: You feel people in Hollywood have an unfair view of President Bush?

DAVI: I see a disconnection between Hollywood and the administration after the 2000 election. During the recount in Florida, I spoke to friends in Hollywood who felt they were “disenfranchised.” As for myself, I thought it was almost a divine intervention how the dispute turned out: the week of 9/11, some people who told me they felt disenfranchised during the recount told me, “Thank God Bush was in office at that moment, instead of his opponent!” Mayor Giuliani said the same thing. They felt much safer with President Bush in office. I think Bush is absolutely the right man at the right time, and thank God he’s in office. Many of my friends who didn’t vote for him said so, too.

But it only took three weeks after we went into Afghanistan to change all that. Now, as we get further away from 9/11, it seems like the left-wing media has begun to interject more politics into the war effort. I travel around the world on location shooting, and when I see how CNN presents the United States, it’s negative. When I’m watching CNN in Budapest, London, Paris, and other foreign countries—until recently all you had was CNN when traveling overseas—the message is always skewed against America. That network is totally biased. If people overseas are constantly exposed only to negative messages about America, no wonder they react a certain way. Here we have shows like Scarborough Country on MSNBC, and Fox News, to give some balance. Even when CNN has commentators to present a conservative point of view, they are weak or inarticulate and not up to the heavyweights from the other side. For example, James Carville up against Tucker Carlson. Does that seem like a heavyweight match to you?

KAPLAN: I don’t see either of them as heavyweights.

DAVI: Their debates seem almost about who can make the most noise.

KAPLAN: Let’s discuss your background. Were you always a conservative?

DAVI: Yes, more or less. In the 1960’s, I grew up in an Italian-American family in which we discussed politics. My father, uncle and grandfather all served in the military.

My grandfather served in World War I and was awarded a Purple Heart and Oak Leaf Cluster. He was an Italian immigrant who enlisted in the U.S. Army infantry. Several of my uncles were in the Navy and fought in the Battle of Midway. My father was also in the Navy, as a gunner on a Merchant Marine ship which was torpedoed by a submarine. He spent three days on the open sea in a raft and was also awarded a Purple Heart. Until his death at age 53, my dad would put on his Navy uniform and raise the American flag on every Fourth of July and Memorial Day. So when we speak about supporting our troops today, as well as during Vietnam, it has special meaning for me.

I remember there was always a lot of political discussion around the dinner table. My Uncle Mike was a staunch Republican. My immediate family were John F. Kennedy Democrats because Kennedy was the Catholic president. As kids, my cousin Michael Jr. and I would perform mock political debates and record them for our families, portraying the political figures of the day. My Uncle Mike was always advocating Republican ideas. He was an authority figure for my cousin and myself, and I suppose out of youthful rebellion we would sometimes turn a deaf ear to his conservative point of view.

My dad was a member of the Knights of Columbus. I remember when he came home one day—I must have been about 12 years-old—and he gave me two books, None Dare Call It Treason by John Stormer and Masters of Deceit by J. Edgar Hoover. After reading them, my Uncle Mike’s point of view didn’t seem so out of sync. This was during the mid-1960’s, and both books had a profound effect on me. They discussed how America was going to be attacked from within, through our education system and through weakening homeland defense. They frightened and alarmed me. Now, since time has moved on, we see that things predicted in those books have occurred.

I began to see the anti-American sentiment growing during the 1960’s and 1970’s—the Vietnam era—and I began to notice what was going on around me. Then came the Reagan years. But I was still focused mainly on my acting career.

By the 1980’s, my career was in full swing. I was able to take more interest in world affairs as an adjunct to my career. Since then I’ve been an avid reader of political books, among them The Art of Political War and Radical Son by David Horowitz. I also read books by Ann Coulter and Christopher Hitchens. I eventually met David Horowitz. I just finished reading Unholy Alliance: Radical Islam and the American Left, one of the most important books for our current times—and I urge everyone, if they do nothing else, they should read this book. I feel that strongly about this.

KAPLAN: You mentioned earlier threats posed to America from within. FrontPage has been dealing with this sort of thing in our educational system through Students for Academic Freedom.

DAVI: I am aware of that. I became sensitized to these issues by what was going on in my own daughter’s private school, where it seems a majority of the teachers have a left-wing agenda. The Center for the Study of Popular Culture made me aware of how 90% of college instructors also have left-wing political views and how that affects education in this country. Just before mock presidential elections at my daughter’s school, the pupils were given Time Magazine for Kids to read an article, Leader of the Pack: John Kerry. It discussed Kerry’s views on terrorism and education in a very slanted and positive way, while President Bush’s agenda and policies were all presented negatively. I passed this same article among seven or eight adults of different political viewpoints at my home, and all of them agreed the article was biased. The students were all told to read that one article and then vote. If you only give an eighth grader one point of view to read, with no balance, what are you going to get? My daughter said Kerry won, hands down.

During a parent-teacher evening at her school, my daughter’s history teacher, who seemed like a nice enough man, told all the parents “We’re going to show America, warts and all.” I asked him why he didn’t say he was going to show some of the great things America has done as well as some mistakes America may have made in the past. It was almost as if he had the perception that the parents would be glad he brought up the “warts” of America. I’m not saying that we should blindly be taught something in an uneducated manner, but when something is slanted this way....

KAPLAN: America, the great imperialist in the world?

DAVI: Exactly. I also think this usurps the child’s respect for the parents, since the teacher becomes the new authority figure for the child in school. There’s something very insidious about this.

KAPLAN: What do you think about the presidential campaign? What about the Swift Boats controversy vs. President Bush’s National Guard service?

DAVI: Here’s what I think. First, it’s amazing to me that most Americans don’t remember that it wasn’t Bush who wanted the courts to decide the 2000 election—Gore did. But even today, some try to make that a divisive issue during this election campaign. As for Kerry, nobody’s questioning his love for America. But he was the one who put Vietnam in the public eye. I have enormous respect for anyone who served in Vietnam. My hat’s off to all the veterans. I can’t talk because my draft number was 308 and I was sweating over the draft the same as everyone else back then. But the way I see it, if I’m in battle with someone and come home with the troops still there and I behave as he did, it’s not right. From what I understand, those weren’t his medals that he threw away. They were surrogate medals. He kept his medals and threw away his ribbons. What’s the difference? It goes right to the character of the man trying to have it both ways. If you’re really saying something, then throw the whole thing away. What he did coming back, put a big question in my mind about Kerry.

You can’t equate what Bush did or didn’t do 30 years ago with what’s happening now. Bush didn’t put Kerry’s service on the table. Bush didn’t go around bragging about his National Guard service. It’s irrelevant. Instead of 30 years ago, we need to discuss today. I’d like Kerry to say where he is today. I’d like him to discuss his Senate record. I don’t want him to answer me by attacking Bush.

The major issues today are the Middle East, Iraq and terrorism. I think they are broad subjects. Criticism of Bush about the war in Iraq is just politicizing the war in an election year. Imagine if Bush did not send American forces into Iraq. Before we went in, the world was concerned that Iraq was a threat. Regardless of the outcome, if we did not go in to disarm Hussein from WMDs, the Democratic Party today would be campaigning and complaining that he did not do anything about Saddam Hussein until now, that he endangered American security by not taking action. Iraq would still be a major part of the terrorist network, with camps all over that country, such as the training camps at Salman Pak. Hussein paid $25,000—then raised it to $30,000—to every family of the suicide bombers attacking Israel. Even some Americans were killed in those attacks. Abu Nidal and Abu Abbas would still be a threat.

For the left it’s about dividing the country, a purely political agenda for the Democrats. The other side talks about President Bush dividing the people, but, the truth be told, the attacks on President Bush about Iraq are not going to unify the country in the long run. And this is a time when we should be unified.

KAPLAN: What else do you think about the Middle East situation and Iraq? Is President Bush on the right track?

DAVI: Yes. A lot of people don’t know about the Iraqi flag. Between 1991 and the 1993 bombing attack on the World Trade Center, the Iraqi flag changed. Hussein wrote “Allahu Akhbar” on it. To me, that was an open door to militant Islam.

KAPLAN: I write extensively on the Middle East and was unaware of that.

DAVI: In my mind, you have to make the observation that the Iraqis were moving toward working with al-Qaeda and militant Islam, [working] with the terrorists. In 1988, I played a Palestinian terrorist who was kidnapped and brought back to the U.S. to face trial in "The U.S. vs. Salim Ajami." I did a lot of research for that project and the role I played.

KAPLAN: You received critical praise for your portrayal of a Palestinian terrorist that was objective and sensitive. But the Arab-American Anti-Discrimination Committee claimed the film was anti-Arab.

DAVI: George Englund, who produced the film, actually had the script vetted by the Arab League to be objective. And as an actor, I had to be objective and be the character, to portray his point of view as if it were my own. I’m a kid from New York, an actor, and I didn’t know anything about the PLO. I went into that role a clean slate, not having the issues at hand, but in my research I made sure I had an understanding of the region. I met people from Algeria, Syria, Palestinians, even members of the PLO.... I met with the Israeli Consul General and even with the Museum of Tolerance to understand the nature of the piece. Ron Liebman played my defense attorney, and Sam Waterston played the prosecutor.

I broke down during the making of the film. I flashed at one point to Martin Luther King’s funeral, to a rickety old wagon being drawn by two mules that I had seen on TV that represented to me the human struggle—either we all pull it apart or all pull it together. My character was defended by a Jewish defense attorney, but our ideologies were different. After that piece, I felt there should be a Palestinian state; I thought if you give them their own governance, all would work out. But when I went to Jordan in 1994 to shoot "The Return of the Pink Panther," many of the older Arabs kept telling me “We will push the Jews into the sea,” and kept repeating it. Some of the younger ones said they didn’t believe that. I believe Israel has to exist. The suicide bombings are irrational. King Hussein’s family asked me if I’d teach a seminar on acting there. I told them I’d consider it if they’d put 50 million dollars into a bank to make million-dollar movies, to bring writers and directors to the region committed to the idea of using the money to pay people for better ideas rather than bullets.

KAPLAN: So you believe Israel has a right to exist?

DAVI: Of course—needs to exist, has a right to exist. I think the Palestinians have a right to exist also, but their leadership has betrayed them.

KAPLAN: I believe a Palestinian state will be another Iran.

DAVI: It’s a vital issue that needs to be resolved. It seems to be mired in a sea of information, but I am learning, through FrontPage, historical facts and current information about the Israel-Palestine dispute all the time. Recently, I found out about Hamas using ambulances paid for by U.S. tax money to transport weapons to kill people in Israel—even though Israel is withdrawing from Gaza. Regarding the security fence, if I have people trying to enter my home and kill my children, I would want a fence to protect them and keep the killers out. The security fence should be there until the PLO puts down its weapons and arrests the terrorists. Then they can negotiate borders. How can anyone be expected to negotiate when someone is trying to kill their children? One side calls the security fence a wall, but it’s in fact only a huge wall for about one quarter of a mile. The rest is barbed wire and mesh fencing, much as we have on our own border with Mexico. I’m angered that they say the security fence is a wall. It’s a wall that saves lives. What’s wrong with that?

A lot of films have been made about the Holocaust, but still anti-Semitism continues.

This upsets me. Take a look at what’s happening in Europe. In France, Jews are being attacked openly on the streets. I spoke to a Chasidic Jew I met recently while working on a film in Canada. “You must come to Israel,” he told me. I told him I was a little bit nervous to do so, with all the terrorism. But he told me, “You must come to Israel and see what a pluralistic society it is.”

It’s shocking what is going on in the colleges in America. Like when Bill O’Reilly revealed that Sami al-Arian, the head of a major terrorist organization was teaching the next generations in our universities. It’s truly frightening.

Why do there seem to be many Jews who are opposed to George W. Bush? There seems to be a major disconnection from reality with that. Bush would not invite Arafat to the White House—and still hasn’t, as long as he has been in office. People need to know that. I meet many Jews who are of progressive views but who fail to see how things have shifted, how the Left is now posing a real threat to Jews around the world. I can see this clearly, and I’m not even Jewish.

KAPLAN: Do you believe the Jews run Hollywood?

DAVI: That’s a statement I hear from the media, part of the media myth. I guess it comes from the old Group Theater days (that grew out of the Yiddish Theater). The Goldwyns, the Mayers, the Warner Brothers, the early studio chiefs were Jewish. I don’t see it like that.

KAPLAN: Besides the Restoration Weekend coming up, where will you lecture, and what other conservative groups have you spoken to?

DAVI: There’s the Sunday Night Club. It’s a group of about 150 people in the entertainment business who are actors, writers, production people and models who want to speak in a Republican way. It’s a nice symposium. We have other speakers also. We meet periodically. I recently was on Scarborough Country and on [Neil] Cavuto on Fox. And I am the national spokesman for I Safe America for kids. I’ve been their spokesman for seven years. Recently, it’s been funded by Congress as an Internet safety program for kids in America. I’m also working on a program, Civilian Patrol 93 [The “93” represents Flight 93, whose passengers tried to overpower their 9/11 hijackers]. We will be working and training with several community outreach groups, training people to help Homeland Security. Sort of like the National Guard, but not military. Civilians can be the eyes and ears to help the infrastructure of America. The Department of Homeland Security is working on it right now.

I’m also on the Steering Committee of the Homeland Security Policy Institute at George Washington University. I’m the only civilian. I work with corporate CEO’s and major players in national security. William Sessions, formerly of the FBI, James Woolsey, formerly of the CIA, and the U.S. Army’s former Chief of Staff, Edward “Shy” Meyer, are among a large panel made up of many of America’s best and most experienced leaders, both from business and military backgrounds, lending their expertise to help protect America.

KAPLAN: Were you appointed by President Bush?

DAVI: I Safe America is a non-partisan organization with a celebrity board. The Homeland Security Institute was different. I was chosen by people who know me. I’m also on the Board of Directors of the Center for the Study of Popular Culture, David Horowitz’s outfit.

KAPLAN: I didn’t know that! (Laughter)

DAVI: David Horowitz has credibility when it comes to politics. He really knows where all the bodies are buried. I have a lot of respect for him.

Wild Thing's comment.........

Robert Davi is a friend, he came to our Christmas parties we had when we lived in California. When we watched the GOP convention and I knew he was donig the voice overs for some of the McCain videos and now this article with Davi and Fred Thompson traveling and speaking for McCain/Palin I thought I would share with you this interview I have that Robert did back in 2004.

He is a good guy and the other interviews in the videos also are fun to watch where he talks about the difference in Obama and McCain and the other video where he talks about Michael Moore etc.

I hope you enjoy all of this.

Bill Clinton Speaks At Penn State Small Crowd Compared To Gov.Sarah Palin's

Clinton draws 1,500 people in Penn State compared to the 7,000 plus and 1000's that had to be turned away at Gov. Sarah Palin Rally at Penn State.

University Park

Former President Bill Clinton, in his fourth visit to Penn State in 12 years, campaigned for Barack Obama on Wednesday, saying “we need a president who wants to understand.”

How much have we suffered from people who did not want to understand?” he added.

Clinton delivered a 22-minute speech Wednesday afternoon before about 1,500 people — mostly Penn State students — in Rec Hall, where Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin held a rally the night before that drew about 7,000.

Wild Thing's comment.......

YUK, I wouldn't go to hear any speaker that spoke about how I needed understanding for my suffering. He assumes I suppose that his entire audience is sufffff-errr--ing.... Like some horrible soap opera. haha

How boreing and being a Democrat there is no way Clinton could make a person feel positive. Just more of the hope in the air baloney and how awful America is them anyway!

It would be soooo depressing to be a Democrat voting for Obama, how awful life would be if that is all I had to look forward to. A communist wanting to keep me needy to the big ole government.

Traitor To America and Our Troops Murtha Vs. Lt. Colonel Bill Russell (USAR ret.) HERO!

Murtha continues his tirade in the 12th Congressional District. In this FOX NEWS report he says NO God damn way.

Taking Murtha Down?

Human Events

Voters are beginning to realize that the longtime congressman does not share their values, says Russell.

“What Mr. Murtha did was attribute the lowest possible motivations to our voters,” he says. “The people in this area tend to vote their values. To say that they are simply racist because they won’t vote for Obama overlooks the fact that Senator Obama has an almost radical pro-abortion platform, as well as a very anti-gun platform. This shows that Murtha has clearly lost touch with the voters.”

Russell, a retired Army Lieutenant Colonel, says this isn’t the first time Murtha has outraged his constituents. In 2005, Murtha, a former Marine, called for an immediate and complete troop withdrawal from Iraq. Two years ago, he called U.S. Marines accused of killing civilians in the Iraqi city of Haditha “cold-blooded murderers.”

“The most vehemently anti-Murtha people I meet are Marines,” Russell says. “They believe he threw them under the bus with his Haditha comments. Overall, veterans have been very, very positive toward me.” He estimates that 90 percent of veterans in the district will choose him over Murtha.

Russell’s campaign has also questioned what Murtha has done to help the economically depressed area, despite securing hundreds of millions of dollars in earmarks.

“After 35 years of earmarks -- earmarks that have hurt business development here -- our biggest export is our adult children,” Russell says, adding that Murtha has voted against coal development in the region.

Russell also says the Murtha campaign has engaged in voter intimidation.

“Back in the early part of my campaign, when I was doing ballot petitions, I had about 15 people tell me ‘Look, I can vote for you, but I can’t sign your petition or donate to your campaign because I or my wife will get fired,’” Russell says. “People were afraid to sign public documents for fear of retribution.”

Wild Thing's comment.........

If Murtha gets elected AGAIN after what he has said about our troops, our Marines, then I think those that voted for this POS Murtha, this scum, low life not worth the air he breaths Murtha, deserve the worst kind of karma possible. They do NOT love Amercia, they do NOT respect our military PERIOD! They will be my enemy and I hope those living in Murhta and Russell's area will realize how the rest of Anmerica feels about their vote, that it effects all of America, all of our military not just their world where they live.

The RNC has provided $84,000 to the Russell campaign to put up a TV ad on local stations this week ( source HERE )
The National Republican Congressional Committee will spend $84,000 on an ad that quotes Murtha's recent remarks calling his district racist - as well as past statements about U.S. military personnel killing innocent civilians in Iraq - and ends with the word, "Enough."

....Thank you Mark for sending this to me.

BOOM! Obama Speechwriter Switches to McCain

Obama Speechwriter Switches to McCain


Imagine if a speechwriter for John McCain had switched sides and announced she was going to vote for Barack Obama. Would she not be featured bigtime in the mainstream media complete with new thrills running up Chris Matthews leg? Well, this did happen except that it was an Obama speechwriter, Wendy Button, who became disillusioned with The One and switched to supporting McCain.

Here are the highlights of Wendy Button's explanation of why she made the switch:

Since I started writing speeches more than ten years ago, I have always believed in the Democratic Party. Not anymore. Not after the election of 2008. This transformation has been swift and complete and since I’m a woman writing in the election of 2008, “very emotional."
When we first met, Obama and I had a nice conversation about speeches and writing, and at the end of the meeting I handed him a pocket-sized bottle of Grey Poupon mustard so he wouldn’t have to ask staff if it was okay to put it on his hamburger. At the bottom of the bottle was the logo for “The South Beach Diet” and he snapped, “Oh so you read People magazine.” He seemed to think that I was commenting on his bathing suit picture.
I helped with his announcement speech and others. I worked in the Senate when he was in D.C. One day after a hearing on Darfur, we were walking back to the office. I was still hobbling from a very bad ankle injury and in a very kind and gentle way he offered his arm when we approached the stairs. But later in debate preps and phone conversations and meetings, I realized that I had made a mistake. I didn’t belong. No matter how hard I tried, my heart wasn’t in it anymore.
...The final straw came the other week when Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher (a.k.a Joe the Plumber) asked a question about higher taxes for small businesses. Instead of celebrating his aspirations, they were mocked. He wasn’t “a real plumber,” and “They’re fighting for Joe the Hedge-Fund manager,” and the patronizing, “I’ve got nothing but love for Joe the Plumber.”
Having worked in politics, I know that absolutely none of this is on the level. This back and forth is posturing, a charade, and a political game. These lines are what I refer to as “hooker lines”—a sure thing to get applause and the press to scribble as if they’re reporting meaningful news.
As the nation slouches toward disaster, the level of political discourse is unworthy of this moment in history. We have Republicans raising Ayers and Democrats fostering ageism with “erratic” and jokes about Depends. Sexism. Racism. Ageism and maybe some Socialism have all made their ugly cameos in election 2008. It’s not inspiring. Perhaps this is why I found the initial mocking of Joe so offensive and I realized an old line applied: “I didn’t leave the Democratic Party; the Democratic Party left me.”
The party I believed in wouldn’t look down on working people under any circumstance. And Joe the Plumber is right. This is the absolutely worst time to raise taxes on anyone: the rich, the middle class, the poor, small businesses and corporations.
...Not only has this party belittled working people in this campaign from Joe the Plumber to the bitter comments, it has also been part of tearing down two female candidates. At first, certain Democrats and the press called Senator Clinton “dishonest.” They went after her cleavage. They said her experience as First Lady consisted of having tea parties. There was no outrage over “Bros before Hoes” or “Iron My Shirt.” Did Senator Clinton make mistakes? Of course. She’s human.
But here we are about a week out and it’s déjà vu all over again. Really, front-page news is how the Republican National Committee paid for Governor Sarah Palin’s wardrobe? Where’s the op-ed about how Obama tucks in his shirt when he plays basketball or how Senator Biden buttons the top button on his golf shirt?
...Governor Palin and I don’t agree on a lot of things, mostly social issues. But I have grown to appreciate the Governor. I was one of those initial skeptics and would laugh at the pictures. Not anymore. When someone takes on a corrupt political machine and a sitting governor, that is not done by someone with a low I.Q. or a moral core made of tissue paper. When someone fights her way to get scholarships and work her way through college even in a jagged line, that shows determination and humility you can’t learn from reading Reinhold Niebuhr. When a mother brings her son with special needs onto the national stage with love, honesty, and pride, that gives hope to families like mine as my older brother lives with a mental disability. And when someone can sit on a stage during the Sarah Palin rap on Saturday Night Live, put her hands in the air and watch someone in a moose costume get shot—that’s a sign of both humor and humanity.
Has she made mistakes? Of course, she’s human too. But the attention paid to her mistakes has been unprecedented compared to Senator Obama’s “57 states” remarks or Senator Biden using a version of the Samuel Johnson quote, “There’s nothing like a hanging in the morning to focus a man’s thoughts.”
...I was dead wrong about the surge and thought it would be a disaster. Senator John McCain led when many of us were ready to quit. Yet we march on as if nothing has changed, wedded to an old plan, and that too is a long way from the Democratic Party.
I can no longer justify what this party has done and can’t dismiss the treatment of women and working people as just part of the new kind of politics. It’s wrong and someone has to say that. And also say that the Democratic Party’s talking points—that Senator John McCain is just four more years of the same and that he’s President Bush—are now just hooker lines that fit a very effective and perhaps wave-winning political argument…doesn’t mean they’re true. After all, he is the only one who’s worked in a bipartisan way on big challenges.

Wild Thing's comment.......

Oh my gosh this is huge. Now we wait and see if the media will pick up on this. Tapping my foot........hahahaha well nothing from CNN yet. haahaha

I bet FOX will cover this later today if they haven't done it so far.

This woman could have just simply left the Obama campaign so for her to speak out and switch like this is awesome. I like the way she broke it down in her reasons for getting fed up with Obama and his camp.

Obama Accepting Untraceable Donations

Obama Accepting Untraceable Donations

washington post

By Matthew Mosk

Sen. Barack Obama's presidential campaign is allowing donors to use largely untraceable prepaid credit cards that could potentially be used to evade limits on how much an individual is legally allowed to give or to mask a contributor's identity, campaign officials confirmed.

Faced with a huge influx of donations over the Internet, the campaign has also chosen not to use basic security measures to prevent potentially illegal or anonymous contributions from flowing into its accounts, aides acknowledged. Instead, the campaign is scrutinizing its books for improper donations after the money has been deposited.

The Obama organization said its extensive review has ensured that the campaign has refunded any improper contributions, and noted that Federal Election Commission rules do not require front-end screening of donations.

In recent weeks, questionable contributions have created headaches for Obama's accounting team as it has tried to explain why campaign finance filings have included itemized donations from individuals using fake names, such as Es Esh or Doodad Pro. Those revelations prompted conservative bloggers to further test Obama's finance vetting by giving money using the kind of prepaid cards that can be bought at a drugstore and cannot be traced to a donor.

The problem with such cards, campaign finance lawyers said, is that they make it impossible to tell whether foreign nationals, donors who have exceeded the limits, government contractors or others who are barred from giving to a federal campaign are making contributions.

"They have opened the floodgates to all this money coming in," said Sean Cairncross, chief counsel to the Republican National Committee. "I think they've made the determination that whatever money they have to refund on the back end doesn't outweigh the benefit of taking all this money upfront."

The Obama campaign has shattered presidential fundraising records, in part by capitalizing on the ease of online giving. Of the $150 million the senator from Illinois raised in September, nearly $100 million came in over the Internet.

The Obama team's disclosures came in response to questions from The Washington Post about the case of Mary T. Biskup, a retired insurance manager from Manchester, Mo., who turned up on Obama's FEC reports as having donated $174,800 to the campaign. Contributors are limited to giving $2,300 for the general election.

Biskup, who had scores of Obama contributions attributed to her, said in an interview that she never donated to the candidate. "That's an error," she said. Moreover, she added, her credit card was never billed for the donations, meaning someone appropriated her name and made the contributions with another card.

When asked whether the campaign takes steps to verify whether a donor's name matches the name on the credit card used to make a payment, Obama's campaign replied in an e-mail: "Name-matching is not a standard check conducted or made available in the credit card processing industry. We believe Visa and MasterCard do not even have the ability to do this.

Wild Thing's comment......

This is another reason why the left does not like the Patriotic Act.

My guess is that Obama knows most of his contributions are illegal and he could care less. He does not have to be accountable on anything so why should he worry. Demcorats are the party of not having to be accountable.

This was on FOX this morning. They explained that the Obama's campaign does not have AVS turned on for it's credit card processing on donations (AVS = Address Verification Service).

They said a lot, a ton of money was coming in from Europe and all kinds of other placles. Fox went on to list some of the names: Adolf Hilter, Yogi Bear, William Ayers.

....Thank you Lynn for sending this to me.

Clinton Appointed Judge Rules Ohio Homeless Voters May List Park Benches As Addresses

Judge rules Ohio homeless voters may list park benches as addresses

The Columbus Dispatch


A federal judge in Ohio has ruled that counties must allow homeless voters to list park benches and other locations that aren't buildings as their addresses.

U.S. District Judge Edmund Sargus also ruled that provisional ballots can't be invalidated because of poll worker errors.

Monday's ruling resolved the final two pieces of a settlement between the Northeast Ohio Coalition for the Homeless and Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner.

The coalition agreed to drop a constitutional challenge to Ohio's voter identification law until after the Nov. 4 election. In return, Brunner and the coalition agreed on procedures to verify provisional ballots across all Ohio counties.

The coalition was concerned that unequal treatment of provisional ballots would disenfranchise some voters.

Wild Thing's comment.........

Due to ACORN and so much voter fraud this is absolutely just ludicrous. It is not about not wanting Americans to vote it is about making sure there is no way for fraud. This opens up a whole mess if they do this. Wouldn't it be better to have the homeless register at a Homeless shelter or a church, that way it can be more accurate and less chance of voting fraud. What the hell kind of address is a park bench!

What address do they use if they are someone that gets a Social security check?? Maybe that address is one they can use. A person is supposed to be able to verify that you are a resident of the state. How can that be verified using a park bench as an address?

This whole voting thing is so corrupt it is starting to lose it's meaning. I know that sounds radical but this voter fraud is really making me feel insecure about my vote, about all of our votes and I don't like it one bit!

I want to win or lose honestly not because a ton of corrupt democrats and ACORN and Judges put the fix in so they win an election. This is America for pete's sake! Damn, democrats!!! They undermine and destroy confidence in the election process. ACORN will now register 139 people per park bench.

What the heck is next, Federal Judge in Ohio Rules Dead Can Still Vote: “They’re still American citizens and have rights. Just because you’re dead doesn’t mean you give up your civil rights. AND they have a known address

Ohio sure wants to elect Barack Hussein Obama!

With all of this happening, this is another reason I am sooo glad the reaction to Gov. Sarah Palin has been so awesome. McCain and Palin are doing great and I am getting a stronger feeling about how we will do every day. Obama is messing up a lot. And there are people out there that have not voted yet and they also must be noticing all this cutting of interviews with TV stations, the $2 Million Biden is having to answer for he got for his family and the 2001 audio tape of Obama which was huge. Just keep praying!!!!!

And look at this.....................


CLEVELAND - Volunteers supporting Barack Obama picked up hundreds of people at homeless shelters, soup kitchens and drug-rehab centers and drove them to a polling place yesterday on the last day that Ohioans could register and vote on the same day, almost no questions asked.

The huge effort by a pro-Obama group, Vote Today Ohio, takes advantage of a quirk in the state’s elections laws that allows people to register and cast ballots at the same time without having to prove residency.

Republicans have argued that the window could lead to widespread voter fraud because officials wouldn’t have an opportunity to verify registration information before ballots were cast.

Among the volunteers were Yori Stadlin and Vivian Lehrer of the Upper West Side, who got married last week and decided to spend their honeymoon shepherding voters to the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections.

Early today, Stadlin’s van picked up William Woods, 59, at the soup kitchen of the Bishop Cosgrove Center.

“I never voted before,” Woods said, because of a felony conviction that previously barred him from the polls. “Without this service, I would have had no way to get here.”

Obama's Stealth Reparations

Obama's Stealth Reparations

FrontPage Magazine

By Paul Sperry

While he was an Illinois state senator, Barack Obama told a Chicago radio show host that he sought "major redistributive change" for the benefit of fellow blacks.

He was speaking in the context of the civil rights movement, and how it had fallen short of "economic justice." Although John McCain and other Republicans are afraid to say it, his remarks can only be interpreted to mean one thing: economic reparations for slavery.

This is yet another example of Obama's lack of candor and deception about his true radical agenda during this campaign, as well as the mainstream media's failure to vet such serious issues and force them out into the open where voters can see them and have a fair chance to evaluate them before they go to the polls.

In 2001, Obama said it's a "tragedy" the Constitution wasn't radically interpreted to force redistribution of wealth for blacks, and it's still an issue of concern for him today. And he suggested he wants to effect "major redistributive change" through legislation.

He complained that during the civil-rights era, "the Supreme Court never ventured into issues of redistribution of wealth" for blacks, and that the Warren Court was not "radical" enough.

"One of the tragedies of the civil-rights movement was there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalitions of power through which you bring about redistributive change," he said while serving as a state lawmaker and University of Chicago lecturer. "And in some ways, we still suffer from that."

That was in 2001. Now those coalitions, led by ACORN and other radical urban community organizers, hope to deliver Obama to national power along with a legislative majority working on their behalf.

"Maybe I'm sharing my bias here as a legislator, but I'm not optimistic about bringing about major redistributive change through the courts," he added. "The institution just isn't structured that way."

Obama explained that justices felt uncomfortable forcing school districts to pay the extra expense to make the necessary changes to accommodate their desegregation rulings. They would rather not get involved in issues of direct remuneration. Legislators, on the other hand, would have no such qualms about making people pay.

He said the process of redistributive change and "economic justice" is "administrative and takes a lot of time" -- things that are best left to a federal administration and legislature.

In a separate interview, he said the framers of the Constitution had an "enormous blind spot" regarding slavery -- no argument there. But then he said that the Constitution -- in spite of its subsequent proper amendments giving blacks full citizenship and rights -- still "represents the fundamental flaw of this country that continues to this day."

This echoes what he wrote in his 2006 autobiography about the Constitution being "marred by the original sin of slavery."

Question: Does Obama want to further amend the Constitution in some way? It seems he thinks something is missing, left undone. Does he want to institutionalize reparations somehow? It's a serious question he should be compelled to answer, if he would only give reporters outside his fawning entourage a chance to ask it. (He hasn't held a press conference in over a month.) Remember, Obama was a constitutional lawyer and would know how to get the amendment ratification process started with the right majority in Congress behind such a movement.

Back in August, Barack Obama said Washington shouldn't just offer apologies for slavery, but also "deeds." Don't worry, he said, he wasn't talking about direct reparations.

I wasn't put at ease then, and I'm definitely not now.

"I consistently believe that when it comes to ... reparations," Obama told a gathering of minority journalists, "the most important thing for the U.S. government to do is not just offer words, but offer deeds."
A few days later, he clarified his remarks, saying he was not calling for direct cash payments to descendents of slaves, but rather indirect aid in the form of government programs that will "close the gap" between what he sees as white America and black America.

In other words, stealth reparations.

He says government should offer "universal" programs -- such as universal health care, universal mortgage credits, college tuition, job training and even universal 401(k)s -- that "disproportionately affect people of color."

Obama's 2006 book and Web site outline a plan calling for essentially a government bailout of the inner cities, which he describes as "repositories for all the scars of slavery and violence of Jim Crow."

Among other things, he proposes:

* Doling out federal grants "targeting ex-offenders or substance abusers";
* Subsidizing supermarket chains that relocate to the inner city;
* Creating a "universal 401(k)" in which the government would tax private contributions and match public contributions made into new retirement accounts by low-income families;
* Imposing "goals and timetables for minority hiring" on large corporations whose work forces are deemed too white;
* Ramping up funding for the Community Development Block Grant program, Head Start and HUD public housing subsidies.
* Funding Small Business Administration loans for minority; businesses who train ex-felons, including gangbangers, for the "green jobs" of the future, such as installing extra insulation in homes;
* Doubling the funding for federal after-school programs such as midnight basketball;
* Subsidizing job training, day care, transportation for inner-city poor, as well as doubling the funding of the federal Jobs Access and Reverse Commute program;
* Expanding the eligibility of the earned income tax credit to include more poor, and indexing it to inflation;
* Adopting entire inner-city neighborhoods as wards of the federal government; and
* Spending billions on new inner-city employment programs, including prison-to-work programs.

This is just a down payment on the "economic justice" Obama has promised the NAACP -- financed by "tax laws that restore some balance to the distribution of the nation's wealth," he says in his book.

And the indirect aid he's proposing now could quickly turn into cash transfers once Obama is safely ensconced in the White House -- with perhaps a filibuster-proof majority of Democrats at the other end of Pennsylvania Avenue.

Claiming "blacks were forced into ghettos," Obama is certainly sympathetic to the idea of reparations. His church has actively petitioned for them for decades. And he's strongly suggested there's a legal case to be made for them.
"So many of the disparities that exist in the African-American community today can be directly traced to inequalities passed on from an earlier generation that suffered under the brutal legacy of slavery and Jim Crow," he said. "We still haven't fixed them."

He assumes the economic gap is a legacy of discrimination and largely unrelated to personal responsibility. He also makes it seem things haven't gotten better for blacks, despite statistics showing enormous economic gains and a rising black middle class ("Better isn't good enough," he insists). He also assumes, like his spiritual mentor Rev. Jeremiah Wright, that America is "still run by racism." Obama claims "institutional racism" still exists in America, without offering any evidence that legalized discrimination still remains in this country, even in its most backwater parts.

Another Obama confidante, Rev. Michael Pfleger, has asserted that white people have a moral obligation to surrender their 401(k) funds and other assets, which he suggested properly belong to blacks.

Obama himself has said more needs to be done to "cleanse America of its original sin." He said he cannot "brush aside the magnitude of the injustice done, or erase the ghosts of generations past, or ignore the open wound, the aching spirit, that ails this country still."
"The problems of inner-city poverty arise from our failure to face up to an often tragic past," Obama said.

He also wrote in his recent autobiography that he sympathizes with militant black activists who fear that "white Americans will be let off the hook" for past crimes, such as "a hundred years of lynching under several dozen administrations."

"I understand these fears," Obama said, and agrees that the government has a "responsibility to make things right," suggesting there is at least some legitimacy to militant demands for payback.

In calling for a "new order," he invoked the memory of abolitionists and their "willingness to spill blood and not just words ... that helped force the issue of a nation half slave and half free."

Apparently, Obama is under the delusion such a division still exists in this country, and that radical action must be taken to unshackle blacks from whatever fetters he imagines are holding them back.

"I'm reminded that deliberation and the constitutional order may sometimes be the luxury of the powerful," Obama said. "And that it has sometimes been the cranks, the zealots, the prophets, the agitators and the unreasonable -- in other words the absolutists -- that have fought for a new order." By cranks, zealots and agitators, he is no doubt referring to all the radicals -- from Wright and Pfleger to Frank Marshall Davis and Bill Ayers -- with whom he has surrounded himself.

Just what is this "new order" he and all his absolutist pals have in mind for America? And why keep it such a mystery from voters?

Wild Thing's comment...........

Barack Hussein Obama wants to shred the Constitution, and destroy our Republic.

The lives of brave Americans that fought, were injured and died to stop slavery means nothing to Obama and his ilk. It was not enough, not even close. They keep showing us how it meant nothing to them. So Obama also forgets he is descended himself from slave owners. Hello Obama!

This is as we all know not even a drop in the bucket of what Obama would like to happen.

Socialism is communism and it means the State will run our lives.Obama is stealth alright, he is a stealth Marxist or stealth communist have your pick all bad whichever it is. I sure as heck don't want this, no way. I have been praying so hard Obama does not win.

Obama hates our Constitution because he dismisses it and he doesn't like it, he wants to change it, he doesn't like its limits on government, he looks at that as a problem. The limits of power on government in the Constitution, represents a problem to Obama.

Obama wants to get judges on the bench that will invent law. as Rush Limbaugh explained the other day. I agree, Obama can't just go and change our Constitution he has to do it with Judges messing with it and that will be easy as President, he just has to hand pick Judges that will do it for him.

If you have the time this is soooo good. I wish that each one of you here and those lurking would listen to this. Rush Limbaugh is speaking about ..........

Pennsylvania Rallies Yesterday With McCain/Palin

Sarah gave three speeches in three different towns and would have given a fourth that got cancelled due to bad weather. God bless her. God blessed us with her.

Palin wows crowd at Shippensburg rally

"Our opponent is not being honest on his tax plan," said Palin.

Palin told the crowd, "Sen. Obama has an ideological commitment to high taxes."

"We have a pro-growth, pro-private sector agenda to get our economy back on track," said Palin.

Report on Governor Palin's Shippensburg Rally from Virginia Ridgerunner

"Shippensburg University, featuring Governor Palin and her husband Todd
There had to have been over 10,000 people show up to support Governor Palin. Inside, they all said the Pledge of Allegiance and the singer asked all the veterans present to raise their hands. There were a couple of hundred of them.
In her speech, Sarah talked about Obama concerning that 2001 interview on Chicago Public Radio in which he laid out his "spread the wealth" ideology and condemned the courts for not being more radical in "distributive change." She really took Barry to the woodshed on that, and then began hitting him hard with one issue after another, especially on taxes. In short, she said that both McCain and herself were committed to across the board tax cuts for everyone, including capital gains taxes and small business taxes.
She also announced that she was firmly behind coal as an energy source, and that she thought it was stupid that we were sending billions of dollars overseas in turn for foreign oil from governments which hate us when we could be spending those billions here developing our own internal energy supplies. Her speech was repeatedly interrupted by chants of "Sarah! Sarah! Sarah!" and "USA! USA! USA!", with regular choruses of boos anytime she brought up Obama's shady plans for the future.

Iraqi Terrorist To Hang for Killing U.S. Soldiers

Iraqi Militant to Hang for Killing U.S. Soldiers

FOX News

BAGHDAD — An Iraqi court has sentenced a militant to death by hanging for the grisly killing of three U.S. soldiers in 2006.

Ibrahim al-Qaraghuli is one of three suspected Al Qaeda in Iraq militants who went to trial for the killings. The other two — Walid al-Kartani and Kazim al-Zubaie — were found not guilty for lack of sufficient evidence.

It is not immediately clear whether the two will be released from custody. All three are Iraqis and have been in custody for at least a year.

The killing of the three 101st Airborne Division soldiers was one of the most brazen attacks against U.S. forces since the Iraq war began in 2003.

And some more information from........

The Houston Chronicle

The soldiers were ambushed June 16, 2006 while at an isolated checkpoint near the Euphrates River, at a time of particularly intense fighting in predominantly Sunni areas just south of Baghdad. At the time, the area was known as the Triangle of Death.

One soldier was found dead at the site of the checkpoint. The two other 101st soldiers were kidnapped, sparking a massive search effort by the military. Their mutiliated bodies were found three days later at a nearby power station, tied together and booby-trapped with roadside bombs.

An al-Qaida linked group later posted a Web video showing the bodies of the two soldiers being dragged behind a truck, then set on fire.

The evidence against the three included fingerprints collected from the truck, which was later found abandoned, along with written testimony from villagers who saw the bodies being dragged, according to U.S. military investigators.

Ibrahim al-Qaraghuli, a 29-year-old farmer, was convicted in the deaths of David J. Babineau, 25, of Springfield, Mass.; Pfc. Kristian Menchaca, 23, of Houston; and Pfc. Thomas Tucker, 25, of Madras, Ore.

The other two Iraqis on trial — Walid al-Kartani and Kazim al-Zubaie — were acquitted for lack of sufficient evidence, but it was not immediately clear whether they would be released from custody. All three men have been in custody for at least a year.

"We would have liked to have the three convictions," U.S. Col. Rafael Lara, an adviser to the Iraqi court system, told reporters after the verdict was announced.
He said the trial showed that "the rule of law is back to Iraq and being forced equally by an independent judiciary. We honor the Iraqi court and we respect this decision."

Wild Thing's comment..........

Notice how the writer of the article which originally came from AP called the killer “a militant”. Al Qaeda basically claimed credit! Prayers for the families of these soldiers.

PBS Poll Asking If Sarah Palin Is Qualified

PBS has an online poll posted, asking if Sarah Palin is qualified.

Apparently the left wing knew about this in advance and are flooding the voting with NO votes.

The poll will be reported on PBS and picked up by mainstream media. It can influence undecided voter in swing states.

Please do two things -- takes 20 seconds.

1) Click on link and vote YES! I mean if you want to and I hope you do. giggle)

Here's the link:

2) Then send this to every McCain-Palin supporter you know, and urge them to vote and pass it on.
The last thing we need is PBS saying their viewers don't think Sarah Palin is qualified.

Sarkosy Calls Obama's Iran Stance "Utterly Immature"

Sarkozy and his wife Carla Bruni-Sarkozy

Sarkosy Has Called Obama's Iran Stance "Utterly Immature"


French President Nicolas Sarkozy is very critical of U.S. presidential candidate Barack Obama's positions on Iran, according to reports that have reached Israel's government.

Sarkozy has made his criticisms only in closed forums in France. But according to a senior Israeli government source, the reports reaching Israel indicate that Sarkozy views the Democratic candidate's stance on Iran as "utterly immature" and comprised of "formulations empty of all content."

Obama visited Paris in July, and the Iranian issue was at the heart of his meeting with Sarkozy. At a joint press conference afterward, Obama urged Iran to accept the West's proposal on its nuclear program, saying that Iran was creating a serious situation that endangered both Israel and the West.

According to the reports reaching Israel, Sarkozy told Obama at that meeting that if the new American president elected in November changed his country's policy toward Iran, that would be "very problematic."

Wild Thing's comment..........

So, if Obama’s elected, France will be more conservative than us. God, that’s a depressing thought. And Obama said he would make the world like us. LOL I don't want everyone to like us only our friends and the heck with our enemies like Barack Hussein Obama.

Another One: Obama/Biden Ban Philadelphia Station

Obama/Biden Ban Philadelphia Station After Tough Interview from any further interviews.

This is a new interview that happened between newscasters at CBS-3 in Philadelphia and Joe Biden. Joe Biden expected to be interviewed about the last Presidential debate and the Phillies. Instead, he got quesitons on how come “spreading wealth around isn’t socialist” and about potential inappropriate spending of campagin donations to his family members law firms and consulting practices.

Wild Thing's comment.........

First it was the station in Florida and now this one in Philly. These local stations are doing the job the main media is to chicken to do or to in love with the socialist/ Marxist's to do.

If Obama wins we can see how easily now he will have state-controlled media.

Kind of risky don't you think to do all this slamming of TV stations before Nov. 4th? Well yes I know since it is Obama he will never be called on it. But even so it is so wrong and he should be ticking people off for doing this. Apparently the media does not stick together all that much.

I feel like one morning I will wake up and all of this will just have been some horrible, sick nightmare.

Military Ballots Being Rejected in Virginia aka Democrats HATE Our Military!

Fairfax County Registrar Rokey Suleman is disqualifying an overwhelming majority of the military federal write-in absentee ballots received in his county on the basis that no address had been given for those witnessing the voter signatures on the ballots. According to Springfield District Supervisor

Pat Herrity and four former members of the military who held a press conference on Thursday, over 98 percent of these military absentee ballots in Fairfax County are being rejected.

Fairfax Co. Registrar Rokey Suleman. He has decided to reject absentee ballots from American soldiers stationed overseas. In fact, some of the ballots he's not counting are those from military personnel serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Mr. Suleman is using a technicality to throw out hundreds of our brave soldier’s votes. Except that Marc Ambinder reports that the Suleman is getting the technicalities wrong.

Voter disenfranchisement in any form is wrong, but the fact that some are actively seeking to take away the right to vote from the very people that are fighting to defend this fundamental American principal is deplorable.

Furthermore, Suleman is a partisan. He was the founder of the Trumbull, OH Young Democrats. Earlier this year, he ran, and lost, for the Ohio Democratic State Central Committee

“I am getting e-mails from people offering to buy my tombstone,” Fairfax County Registrar Rokey Suleman said Monday about the brewing controversy over his decision to comply with a Virginia law regarding a small class of absentee ballots for next week’s presidential election.

The ballots have fallen victim to the interplay between state and federal law and a rare set of factual circumstances. Federal law allows members of the U.S. military and other voters living overseas to vote in the general election using a federal write-in absentee ballot. The problem has been caused by the fact that when a Virginia voter decides to use the federal write-in absentee ballot both as a ballot to cast a vote and as an absentee ballot application, a separate Virginia law requires that the paperwork submitted by the voter include the address of the person acting as a witness for the voter.

But here’s the issue: neither the federal absentee write-in ballot itself nor its instructions mentions Virginia’s requirement that the witness’s address be included. In fact, the ballot form doesn’t even have a space to write down the witness address which Virginia requires.

You can tell Rokey Suleman to honor our American soldiers and count their votes.

Fairfax County General Registrar

Wild Thing's comment........

This is yet one more trick they pull toss military ballots - but round up the homeless and felons and make sure THEIR votes count.

Only democrats would disenfranchise our military. They are disgraceful.

It is NOT the Republicans that keep the military from voting, NOT the Republicans that protest our military!!!!

We CANNOT let this happen again!!! Our brave military personnel more than anyone else deserve to have their voting rights protected.

Don't mess with our military!!!!!!!!!!! This has happened TOO MANY TIMES, for TOO MANY YEARS!!!!!!!!

Saudi-funded textbooks America's K-12 classrooms

Muslim Version of Adam and Eve

Saudi-funded textbooks being used in America's K-12 classrooms.

Teaching, among other things, that Jesus was a "Palestinian," the state of Israel never existed, and that the Muslims discovered America before Columbus. At this rate, perhaps even Saudi grade-school textbooks, complete with jihadi and dhimmi declarations, will come to instruct American school-children.

"Public Schools Teach the ABCs of Islam," by Erick Stakelbeck for CBN News, October 9: - Several recent studies have shown that American students are alarmingly ignorant about U.S. history and world events.

Experts have contributed the problem to everything from failing schools to substandard teachers.

But what about content?

For instance, did you know that Muslims discovered America? Or that Jerusalem is an Arab city? That's just some of the "history" that students in America's K-12 classrooms have been taught in recent years--with the help of taxpayer money.

A new report by the non-profit Institute for Jewish and Community Research finds that American high school and elementary textbooks contain countless inaccuracies about Christianity, Judaism, Israel and the Middle East.

The Institute examined 28 of the most widely-used history, geography and social studies textbooks in America. It found at least 500 errors.

One book ignored the Jewish roots of Christianity, saying the faith was founded by a "young Palestinian" named Jesus.

Another stated as fact that the Koran was revealed to Mohammed from God.

Yet another said ancient Jewish civilization contributed "very little" to to the arts and sciences.

This is what they did during the Vietnam War and then Reagan had to rebuild our military. Then Clinton made cuts in it and now the democrats once again want to make more cuts and less funding. A person would have to be deaf, dumb and blind not to see that DEMOCRATS hate and loath our military!!!

Thinking daisy cutter might be a nice gift to happen to............. well I am only thinking it and it does put a smile on my face. heh heh

We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we've set. We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded."

Tito The Builder Introduces Gov. Sarah Palin

I loved when Tito yelled “I was born in Columbia, but I was made in the US” at Woodbridge, VA rally a couple weeks ago. He knows he does not want the USA to go socialist, communist/ Marxist.
How soon the democrats have forgotten why they family came to this country especially if they came from a communist country.

Nicholas told me one time when he was visiting home from the Navy, they were sitting at the dining room table and one of his Uncles started to talk about Communism. Nicholas Dad the man's brother stood up and told his brother off and said.....

" I came here to come to a free country, one that had no communism or socialism and you speak to me about how GREAT communism is? Leave now and never let your feet cross my doorway or shut up and never speak to me of such things again."

Nicholas said his Uncle sat there and did not say one more word.

Obama " Redistribution of Wealth" from 2001 Uncovered

In a 2001 Chicago Public Radio Interview Obama is discussing the best way to bring about a Redistribution of Wealth.....He also Warren Court was not liberal enough!!!!!

Audio Uncovered

"Barack Obama on Chicago Public Radio WBEZ-FM, 2001: The Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth, and of more basic issues such as political and economic justice in society... and one of the, I think, tragedies of the civil rights movement was, um, because the civil rights movement became so court focused I think there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing and activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalition of powers through which you bring about redistributive change. In some ways we still suffer from that".. video.......

The original show is from the January 18, 2001 Chicago Public Radio show Odyssey. Their audio archive is here:
The original is a longer version then the YouTube just to let you know.

The Original audio is here:


MODERATOR: Good morning and welcome to Odyssey on WBEZ Chicago 91.5 FM and we’re joined by Barack Obama who is Illinois State Senator from the 13th district and senior lecturer in the law school at the University of Chicago.

OBAMA: If you look at the victories and failures of the civil rights movement and its litigation strategy in the court, I think where it succeeded was to vest formal rights in previously dispossessed peoples. So that I would now have the right to vote, I would now be able to sit at the lunch counter and order and as long as I could pay for it I’d be okay.

But the Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth and sort of more basic issues of political and economic justice in this society. And to that extent as radical as people tried to characterize the Warren court, it wasn’t that radical. It didn’t break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the founding fathers in the Constitution, at least as it’s been interpreted, and the Warren court interpreted it in the same way that generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties. It says what the states can’t do to you, it says what the federal government can’t do to you, but it doesn’t say what the federal government or the state government must do on your behalf. And that hasn’t shifted. One of the I think tragedies of the civil rights movement was because the civil rights movement became so court focused, I think that there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing and activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalitions of power through which you bring about redistributed change and in some ways we still suffer from that.

MODERATOR: Let’s talk with Karen. Good morning, Karen, you’re on Chicago Public Radio.

KAREN: Hi. The gentleman made the point that the Warren court wasn’t terribly radical with economic changes. My question is, is it too late for that kind of reparative work economically and is that that the appropriate place for reparative economic work to take place – the court – or would it be legislation at this point?

OBAMA: Maybe I’m showing my bias here as a legislator as well as a law professor, but I’m not optimistic about bringing about major redistributive change through the courts. The institution just isn’t structured that way.

You just look at very rare examples during the desegregation era the court was willing to for example order changes that cost money to a local school district. The court was very uncomfortable with it. It was very hard to manage, it was hard to figure out. You start getting into all sorts of separation of powers issues in terms of the court monitoring or engaging in a process that essentially is administrative and takes a lot of time.

The court’s just not very good at it and politically it’s very hard to legitimize opinions from the court in that regard. So I think that although you can craft theoretical justifications for it legally. Any three of us sitting here could come up with a rational for bringing about economic change through the courts.

Wild Thing's comment..........

This is nothing less then HUGE!!! It shoots down how Obama has said this is not what he is talking about, he can't deny it when he has actually said the very words. He wants to rip our Constitution to shreds! This man cannot become President of the United States of America!!! God help us if he does!

It is also a great video to forward and send to anyone you know that is a fence sitter, a doubter of what kind of nightmare Obama will be, or anyone that needs the truth to be told to them. I emailed it to a lot of people in the media and others that might have missed seeing it.

Obama's "religion" of 20 years, Black Liberation Theology, is Marxist. Goals are empowerment and reparations (spreading the wealth).

Gov.Sarah Palin Rally's Florida and N.C. on Sunday

Gov. Sarah Palin was introduced by Elisabeth Hasselbeck ( from The View tv show).


Governor Sarah Palin and The View co-host Elisabeth Hasselback walked out onto the stage together. Palin was also accompanied by her husband and children.

And Sean Hannity was also there to support Sarah.

Sarah Palin talks clothes at the Rally



Crowd Sings Happy Birthday to Palin’s Mom in Rally in N.C.


FOX News

Local news says appx 10,000 in attendance

Sarah Palin walked into her rally today to the music of Gretchen Wilson. She asked the country singer who has performed at several of her stops to sing “one more song.”

Wilson obliged and belted out “Redneck Woman,” which has become her Palin rally signature song.

Clad in jeans, the GOP Vice-Presidential nominee started singing along and clapping to the music. She glanced back at her husband, Todd and waved to the supporters, clearly enjoying herself.

She then asked the crowd for a favor and they happily obliged.

“Again, so good to be here. Asheville, I was hoping that you could do one more favor for me as we just thanked Gretchen for that beautiful song. You guys we’re all one big American family here. Today is my mom’s birthday. And I want to surprise her by singing her Happy Birthday from all of you in North Carolina. And Gretchen is going to join us.”

She grabbed her cell phone and dialed her mother, Sally Heath and held up the phone as Wilson and about 7,500 supporters sang “Happy Birthday” to her mom in Alaska.

After the song, like most daughters it was hard to get off the phone with her mom. “No really mom, I gotta go, I do,” Palin said.
“Those of you who run our factories and grow our food and teach our children and you fight our wars this is where the goodness and the courage, the best of America is.” Palin said, “It’s in these areas where you love Amer–you have never been not proud to be an American you are proud to be an American.”
“We believe that the best of America is in these small towns that we get to visit, and in these wonderful little pockets of what I call the real America, being here with all of you hard working very patriotic, um, very, um, pro-America areas of this great nation.” Palin said, “This is where we find the kindness and the goodness and the courage of everyday Americans. Those who are running our factories and teaching our kids and growing our food and are fighting our wars for us. Those who are protecting us in uniform. Those who are protecting the virtues of freedom.”

CLICK HERE TO SEE ....... Gov. Palin sing along to both “Redneck Woman” and “Happy Birthday:”

Just go to the page and the video is at the bottom of the article. It is really a fun one to watch.


Wild Thing's comment..........

Sarah Palin did two rallies in Florida on Sunday and both went really great. After Florida she went on to to North Carolina on Sunday night.

Sarah is a natural, I think that is another reason many in the media are jealous of her. I think she is great and look forward to her being our VP offically! Tah dah!

McCain on Meet The Press With Detestable Tom Brokaw

Sen. John McCain on Meet the Press today where Tom Brokaw really pressed John McCain on the subject of Sarah Palin. McCain told Brokaw that Palin "needs no defense," and that he is "incredibly proud of her."

I listened to the entire interview and I have to say I was proud of many of McCain's answers. Tom Brokaw on the other hand is the typical phony total jerk freaking LIBERAL true to his agenda. And agenda that he worships more then being a good America, more then making money off the backs of Veterans and war heroes with the stupid books he has written and is imo a waste of good air.

This is just a part of his interview on Meet The Press, it is the part where McCain is asked about Gov. Sarah Palin. McCain does GREAT in his reply. I thought you would like to see it.

How Obama Suporters Show THEIR Support


"Twenty-five residents of a Gainesville neighborhood woke up this morning to discover their homes had been spray-painted with an obscene comment about the 2008 presidential race. Several businesses were hit as well.
“This is clear voter intimidation,” Corey A. Stewart, At-Large Chairman of the Prince William Board of County Supervisors, said. “The residents targeted by these hoodlums all had McCain for President yard signs in their front yards.”
“Having your home defaced with obscenity because of political beliefs is a hate crime” Stewart said, “This is terrorizing the community.”
“Voter intimidation will not be tolerated in Prince William County. The residents notified the police. I am asking our Commonwealth’s Attorney to investigate. I will seek state and federal investigations as well. Prince William County must be safe for freedom of speech. If we can catch the reprobate who did this, we’ll prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law.”
Stewart added: “We’ve had ACORN and other nuts kicking around down here in Prince William for weeks. I suppose this was bound to happen eventually. But we won’t stand for it.”


Wild Thing's comment........

These people that do this kind of thing can't even respect other people's property. The media should be showing this including the F word painted on property. Yes right on CNN and all the networks, start telling the truth of what kind of low life's Obama brings to power with his low life self.

Michelle Obama and how she has such a hard time being proud of the greatest country in the world and Barack Hussein and his books of white hate and his 20 year church of more white hate and hating America..... I blame all of them for contributing to this kind of behavior.

Liberal seek the lower human beings and do all they can to keep them down and angry. Conservatives seek to raise a person up, support them to be the best they can be...........HUGE difference!!!

PT Boat 658 It Took 12 Years To Restore

Based in Portland, Oregon, this is the ONLY boat left still in it's military configuration! The rest that did survive post-war burn piles, since they are made of wood, not steel, were turned into civilian yachts.

PT 658' took 12 years to restore (1992-'04)

During World War II PT Boats, wooden craft armed to the teeth, fought in all avenues of the war. Years passed and they were slowly replaced or turned into motor yachts for civilians. Now none exist in their wartime glory, save one. The journey from sunken and sullied PT grave to restored and refurbished military splendor is one of dedication, donation, and determination. Only the Greatest Generation could have pulled it off. Their goal was simple, their path was not. This is their story. The clip to the right is an EXTENDED version of the story seen on At Your Leisure this week. It has over a quarter more content than the original with more information and emotion from the men who lived through the war in part because of their PT.


PT-658 River Run

CLICK this website WARBOATS.ORG to see the Higgins PT 658 is shown dockside at its berth at the Navy and Marine Reserve Center in Portland, Oregon and then underway on the Willamette River. The historic boat reached more than 23 knots while underway.

It was restored to operating condition during a 12 year period by Save the PT Boat, Inc, a nonprofit organization of Navy World War II PT boat crew veterans and other volunteers. This demonstration run was one of two staged for veterans and others, including CCoA members Dan Withers and Chuck Fowler, following the 42nd annual PT Boaters National Reunion in Spokane, Washington, July 20 - 24, 2006.

At the website there are photos and videos as well.

Wild Thing's comment......

This was wonderful to see and the video above and the Warboats website is really well done too. I loved that they had so many photos of it being restored. God bless our military and our Veterans.

....Thank you Tom for sending this to me.

Government Computers Used to Find Information On Joe the Plumber

Government computers used to find information on Joe the Plumber

Investigators trying to determine whether access was illegal

The Columbus Dispatch

"State and local officials are investigating if state and law-enforcement computer systems were illegally accessed when they were tapped for personal information about "Joe the Plumber."

Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher became part of the national political lexicon Oct. 15 when Republican presidential candidate John McCain mentioned him frequently during his final debate with Democrat Barack Obama.

The 34-year-old from the Toledo suburb of Holland is held out by McCain as an example of an American who would be harmed by Obama's tax proposals.

Public records requested by The Dispatch disclose that information on Wurzelbacher's driver's license or his sport-utility vehicle was pulled from the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles database three times shortly after the debate.

Information on Wurzelbacher was accessed by accounts assigned to the office of Ohio Attorney General Nancy H. Rogers, the Cuyahoga County Child Support Enforcement Agency and the Toledo Police Department.

It has not been determined who checked on Wurzelbacher, or why. Direct access to driver's license and vehicle registration information from BMV computers is restricted to legitimate law enforcement and government business.

Paul Lindsay, Ohio spokesman for the McCain campaign, attempted to portray the inquiries as politically motivated. "It's outrageous to see how quickly Barack Obama's allies would abuse government power in an attempt to smear a private citizen who dared to ask a legitimate question," he said.

Isaac Baker, Obama's Ohio spokesman, denounced Lindsay's statement as charges of desperation from a campaign running out of time. "Invasions of privacy should not be tolerated. If these records were accessed inappropriately, it had nothing to do with our campaign and should be investigated fully," he said.

The attorney general's office is investigating if the access of Wuzelbacher's BMV information through the office's Ohio Law Enforcement Gateway computer system was unauthorized, said spokeswoman Jennifer Brindisi.

"We're trying to pinpoint where it came from," she said. The investigation could become "criminal in nature," she said. Brindisi would not identify the account that pulled the information on Oct. 16.

Records show it was a "test account" assigned to the information technology section of the attorney general's office, said Department of Public Safety spokesman Thomas Hunter.

Brindisi later said investigators have confirmed that Wurzelbacher's information was not accessed within the attorney general's office. She declined to provide details. The office's test accounts are shared with and used by other law enforcement-related agencies, she said.

On Oct. 17, BMV information on Wurzelbacher was obtained through an account used by the Cuyahoga County Child Support Enforcement Agency in Cleveland, records show.

Mary Denihan, spokeswoman for the county agency, said the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services contacted the agency today and requested an investigation of the access to Wurzelbacher's information. Cuyahoga County court records do not show any child-support cases involving Wurzelbacher.

The State Highway Patrol, which administers the Law Enforcement Automated Data System in Ohio, asked Toledo police to explain why it pulled BMV information on Wurzelbacher within 48 hours of the debate, Hunter said.

The LEADS system also can be used to check for warrants and criminal histories, but such checks would not be reflected on the records obtained by The Dispatch.

Sgt. Tim Campbell, a Toledo police spokesman, said he could not provide any information because the department only had learned of the State Highway Patrol inquiry today.

Wild Thing's comment.........

It's outrageous to see how quickly Barack Obama's allies would abuse government power in an attempt to smear a private citizen who dared to ask a legitimate question. And the Marxist Obama isn't even "elected" yet, and he already has a Secret Police.

The Left love accessing information they shouldn’t to smear perceived threats to their goals and domination. Ask Lynda Tripp about her personnel file or Michael Steele about his Social Security number.

Obama/Biden Campaign NOT Able To Handle Tuff Questions!

Biden Asked the Difference Between Views of Barack Obama and Karl Marx - Video 10/24/08

Here is video of an interview conducted by WFTV (Orlando, FL) anchor Barbara Waters with Sen. Joe Biden. She asks Biden the tough questions about Barack Obama, which visibly angers Joe Biden. She confronts Biden on Obama's socialist policies, and even asks Biden what is the difference between a Karl Marx quote and what Obama is saying. Biden responded with, "Are you joking?"

In case YouTube is down you o can WATCH THE VIDEO HERE

Barbara West won't be interviewing any more Bidens, or Obama

Orlando Sentinel

The Barack Obama campaign detested an interview Barbara West of WFTV-Channel 9 conducted with Sen. Joe Biden on Thursday. West quoted Karl Marx and asked how Obama isn’t being a Marxist with his “spreading the wealth” comment.

“Are you joking?” said Biden, who is Obama’s running mate.

West later asked Biden about his comments that Obama would be tested early on as president -- and wondered if the Delaware senator was saying America’s days as the world’s leading power were over.

“I don’t know who’s writing your questions,” Biden shot back.

The Obama campaign canceled a WFTV interview with Jill Biden, the candidate’s wife. “This cancellation is non-negotiable, and further opportunities for your station to interview with this campaign are unlikely, at best for the duration of the remaining days until the election,” wrote Laura K. McGinnis, Central Florida communications director for the Obama campaign. McGinnis said the Biden cancellation was “a result of her husband’s experience yesterday during the satellite interview with Barbara West.”

The Barack Obama campaign called Barbara West's interview with Sen. Joe Biden unprofessional and combative.

The veteran WFTV-Channel 9 anchor-reporter says she asked pointed questions and respects Sen. Biden, who is Sen. Obama's running mate.

In a call to me Friday evening, West said of Biden:

"I have a great deal of respect for him. I have a great deal of respect for Sen. Obama. We are given four minutes of a satellite window for these interviews. Four precious minutes. I got right down to it and, yes, I think I asked him some pointed questions. These are questions that are rolling about right now and questions that need to be asked right now. I don't think I was rude or inconsiderate to him. I was probing and maybe tough. I can't believe that in all of his years in politics, and all of his campaigning and such, that he hasn't run into some tough questions.

Wild Thing's comment........

There is a huge opportunity for reporters who want to differentiate themselves from the Democrat shills currently holding positions in the MSM. Great questions.

Does Obama Have Narcissistic Personality Disorder?

Does Obama Have Narcissistic Personality Disorder?


From the YouTube person that made the video:

" Understanding Obama: The Making of a Fuhrer, which is published in It unravels the mystique behind Obamas authoritative and haughty behavior. Obamas charisma is the result of his superiority complex, which is a mask narcissists wear to hide their devalued and injured self. The article draws the similarity that exists between Obama and other famous narcissists such as Hitler, Stalin, Saddam, Khomeini and Osama. It is intended to be a scholarly paper, but alas, in this politically charged atmosphere it is bound to become controversial."

Wild Thing's comment..........

I can agree with this video, Obama has a lot of the things Hitler had and other people like that. And nothing in it is good, Barack is a dangerous man for our country. IMO if he wins even other countries will regret knowing Barack Hussein Obama, unless they are countries with leaders that say death to America.

Unto this day, November 4th 2008, the Silent Majority shall prevail in Victory with the crushing defeat of the Marxist parasite.I love omy country and I refuse to allow this election be handed over to Barack Hussein Obama.

More Questions For Barack Obama

Democrat: Obama's grandma confirms Kenyan birth

'This has been a real sham he's pulled off for the last 20 months'


The Pennsylvania Democrat who has sued Sen. Barack Obama demanding he prove his American citizenship – and therefore qualification to run for president – has confirmed he has a recording of a telephone call from the senator's paternal grandmother confirming his birth in Kenya.

The issue of Obama's birthplace, which he states is Honolulu in 1961, has been raised enough times that his campaign website has posted an image purporting to be of his "Certification of Live Birth" from Hawaii.

But Philip J. Berg, a former deputy attorney general for Pennsylvania, told the Michael Savage talk radio program tonight that the document is forged and that he has a tape recording he will soon release.

"This has been a real sham he's pulled off for the last 20 months," Berg told Savage. "I'll release it [the tape] in a day or two, affidavits from her talking to a certain person. I heard the tape. She was speaking [to someone] here in the United States."

He said the telephone call was from Obama's paternal grandmother affirming she "was in the delivery room in Kenya when he was born Aug. 4, 1961."


Three, be a natural-born citizen. He is not."

Obama campaign officials acknowledged the dispute by posting the image purporting to be a copy of his certification of live birth earlier this year. But they've declined to return WND requests for comment...

WND reported earlier this week Berg's claim that Obama has legally "admitted" the accusations included in his lawsuit, including that he was born in Mombosa, Kenya, by not responding to the allegations.

Berg has cited Rule 36 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, which states that unless the accused party provides written answer or objection to charges within 30 days, the accused legally admits the matter.

His lawsuit is demanding that the courts verify Obama's original birth certificate.

Since Obama filed only motions to dismiss the case and did not actually answer the claims, according to Rule 36, Obama has legally admitted he is not a natural-born citizen., asserted Berg, who has taken his information public through his website.

When Jerome Corsi, senior WND investigator reporter, recently traveled to Kenya to investigate several questions about the candidate, he was told the records were sealed and would not be made available.


Wild Thing's comment........

I have seen on the internet some motions and proposed orders posted, but I have never seen any order of the court to enlarge time in which to respond to the requests for admissions . This is getting to the point it can no longer be discounted as some crack pot scheme of Berg's .

There still needs to be more proof but WOULDN’T IT BE FN HILARIOUS! Mass suicides at the DUmp, the Kos Kommie Kiddie playground and at the Huffingandpuffing Post. LOL!!!

If proven that he does not meet the Constitutional criteria BEFORE the Election, all votes cast for him means Biden becomes President if the ticket wins. Same applies if they win and it is proven AFTER the election. NOW, HERE’S THE RUB....

If this is proven BEFORE the election, and his supporters know that he will not sit in the Oval Office but Biden will, they will be so demoralized and depressed they will not show up to vote just to put another old, white guy in office. Biden didn't have a chance to win when he was running for President.

I wish this Berg guy ( Berg was a Hillary Clinton supporter.

Berg was a Hillary Supporter. And I wish this Berg guy would get this in the news instead of just on the internet. There isn’t much time before Rosemarys’ Baby becomes our president. And if Obama is proven not eligible to become president. It's the complicit main stream media who have hidden the facts, the DNC, and Obama.

What adds fuel to the fire is that back in February, Novak reported Hillary’s people were telling other Dems they had discovered something about Obama which would ruin him in all of American politics forever. At the time I blew it off as an attempt to drain some of Obama’s support with rumors, as if it was true, she surely would have used it. Under this scenario, she migth have decided to sit on it.

It would be just like the Clintons to have a PI research an opponent all the way back to their birth. If this is true, Hillary sat on this information and a lot more probably if this is what they were talking about, keeping quiet about it for a reason purely selfish in origin.

All Obama has to do is present genuine evidence, and this issue will go away. It’s very simple.

We’re still waiting.

This is what Greta Van Susteren said on her show and it sounds like a reasonable solution to me. McCain already did produce a vault version-in front of reporters. And here is the thing, there is only one of the four who benefits from this remaining a rumor, and that’s The One, Barack Hussein Obama. -- Wild Thing

"I now think Senator Obama should release his birth certificate but I also think, to be fair, so should the other 3….yes, all 4.

So, let’s have it! All 4 need to release their birth certificates to prove each was born in the USA and thus constitutionally able to serve as President. Let’s insist that all 4 release birth certificates and put the matter to rest! Let’s see them….and then let’s move on."

Note The artist's youtube site is 1PoorJames1 He is the one with the washboard. You can find it by searching on Poor James and the Swamp Crows. I was helping upload the vid and put it on my site. I happen to be the guy in the blue hat.

Poor James Statement : I am an oddity I admit, a guy with a life long love of music, art and literature, living in the sticks in a little cabin (built with my own hands) with my girlfriend, her two horses, three dogs, three cats, plus the occassional stray who drops by for brunch, and yet... I am a right-wing conservative. How can this be you ask?

Quite simply, I have a built in, infallible bull-shit detector (gift from my dear ol' Dad.) I keep my feet planted firmly on the ground and observe what works for our country, and that is conservative ideals: hard work, personal responsibility, small government, fiscal restraint, honor, and duty to family and country. I also see what weakens our country: heavy taxation and redistribution, entitlements for non-producers, disdain for America and an increasingly flexible sense of right and wrong.

Granted, as a songwriter, I have many lib associates whose wacky socialist views I endure, but I'll be damned if I'll have them anywhere near government or policy making.

America did not exude from the ethereal herbal vapors of some drug inspired utopian manifesto, but was built purposefully upon solid ground by brilliant, brave, sober, God-fearing conservatives.

About this song Obama No Merci Beaucoup. You may recall a month or so ago Mr. Obama bemoaning the dearth of mulit-lingual Americans whom, when traveling abroad, could but manage to mutter a paltry "merci beaucoup" (thankyou very much.) Hence the song title Obama No Merci Beaucoup (Obama, no thankyou very much.)

If I were rich I would flood the media with independent anti-Obama ads. If I were a Hollywood actor I would defy those lame-brains and expose Mr. Obama's socialist nature before God and David Letterman. But alas, I am but a poor songwriter living in the sticks. We do what we can.

I think you will find Obama No Merci Beaucoup hard hitting but fair. There are no cheap-shots. The lyrics are based on actual statements he has made, actions he has taken, and his published agenda. Pass it on to your conservative friends to rally them and any libs you may know to throw them off their game a bit. Download it, burn copies if you like, learn it and sing it. If we succeed in securing Mr Obama's defeat in November, we'll dance to it. Your most humble servant, Poor James.

The Future of the Republic is at risk!

Martina McBride - God Bless America (LIVE)

To Arms, Republicans!


It was June 1940. An undefeated and many thought unstoppable Adolf Hitler rolled across the European continent. From the air, the Luftwaffe dominated the skies of Europe, and would soon lay waste the venerable and ancient English capitol. Fear gripped a British citizenry low on food, ammunition, fighting men, and spirit. The full fury of the Bilitz was only months away, and Britain was all alone in its struggle against NAZI tyranny. In this climate of seemingly overwhelming odds, the dogged and pugnacious British Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, rose before the House of Commons to deliver one of his most stirring speeches. Knowing full well the awful price of defeat, and deploying all his considerable rhetorical skill, Churchill challenged and inspired his fellow countrymen and women to fight on to the bitter end:

“We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our Island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender…”

Churchill’s speech rallied the British people who fought on alone. But Churchill’s words inspired many hearts. Less than two years later and thousands of miles from the British capitol, men like Admiral John McCain were answering Churchill’s eloquent call in defense of freedom. Rarely since those days has liberty faced such peril, but Churchill’s words have inspired many, no matter the contest or field of endeavor, to fight on. More than simply an echo of trying times, Churchill’s speech reminds us that when an important battle must be fought, it is incumbent upon each of us, individually and in unison, to go above and beyond the call of duty in pursuit of victory.

And so it is, that we find ourselves on the eve of a historic election for America. No elections are without profound consequences, but not since 1980 has America been faced with such a stark political and ideological dichotomy. John McCain is not the perfect conservative, but whatever his faults, John McCain is now all that stands between Reagan’s America and a disastrous turn toward socialism. With Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi in charge of our Congress, and a President Obama ensconced in the Oval Office, leftist redistributionist policy will flow like water. Taxes hikes, profligate spending, and government expansion will unfold like storm clouds. The unionization of our private sector will begin in earnest and the end of the hitherto sacred secret ballot will come to pass. Our most cherished rights will be assaulted: from our freedom to express our religion, to our right to have and bear arms, to the very heart of the American spirit, the freedom of speech - which will wither under government imposed “fairness” guidelines. Our troops who have fought valiantly to secure a new future and a lasting peace in the Middle East will be undermined from home. The fight against Islamic extremism will end. The next justices on the Supreme Court will consider judicial activism their calling and judge-made law their right. Internationalism, foreign law, and sovereignty-undermining treaties will be the order of the day. Extreme environmentalism will trump all economic and business needs, and the promise of energy independence in the form of nuclear power, increased domestic oil production and natural gas will shrivel under draconian green legislation and government mandates. Like Gulliver amidst his captors, the great American juggernaut, already reeling from an economic blow of largely Democratic making, will succumb; death by 1,000 cuts. Not since the days of Carter will America have known such a malaise. The death of liberty by the hand of equality.

But it is not a future that has to be. Hope remains.

John McCain is first to acknowledge that he is the underdog in this present contest, and many have proclaimed a McCain victory nearly impossible. Yet, with a strong final debate performance, a new sense that the American people are at last considering the true consequences of their choice in leader, and climbing poll numbers, a McCain victory remains possible. The odds are still unfavorable, and the task considerable, but in these final days, now is the time that every man and woman who cares about the hard won conservative gains of the Reagan Revolution must stand and fight. It will take more than merely voting, more than a yard sign or a bumper sticker, or a casual comment to a neighbor. It will take a sure and determined effort to mobilize every last Republican and independent vote.

In the end, it is not the media who decides our future, it is We, the People. So let us decide. Let us take our future into our own hands. In the spirit of Churchill, let us call forth every last remaining fighter. Family, friends, neighbors, and colleagues, parishioners, teammates, fellow students, and more. Even complete strangers and sometimes adversaries must be called upon and mobilized in this effort. Ask yourself not merely what you will do come Election Day, but what you can and must do between now and then. The Left is mobilized and organized. They will be bringing to the polls thousands of voters who have never cast a ballot before. On their side stands all the media with its long and duplicitous tentacles gripping the fountainheads of public opinion. Indeed, all the World whose interests lie in a weakened and demoralized America are willing your defeat.

So up with the rally cry! Dig in, mobilize and fight. We can win this election, and save America from a dreadful future, but only if we commit ourselves to delivering, with one resounding voice, the timeless battle cry of the victors: never surrender!


Wild Thing's comment.............

This might be our last chance to fight back in an election for our country. I pray we win and we need to do all we can to make sure McCain and Palin win and thus America will win too.

For me this is the most important election in my lifetime. I have never seen anything like what this one has been like. The media controlling the news and pushing Obama like we have never seen the media promote a candidate.

Out Of State Obama Workers Illegally Voting in Ohio

Obama Staff Withdraw Votes In Ohio

Elections are about winning votes...not withdrawing them.'s Tiffany Wilson reports why a dozen Obama campaigners withdrew their ballots in Franklin County today.

COLLEGE REPORTERS break story about 12 people that were OUT OF STATE Obama workers that registered to vote and placed early voting ballots in Franklin County, OH.


ACTUAL lawyers for Obama, illegally voting in OHIO.

And here is more on this.....................


Wild Thing's comment.......

These young reporters are the REAL deal, doing the job the 'real' media will not do. I am so proud of Tiffany Wilson and all of them! This is GREAT.

Obama's campaign tried to say McCain people did the same thing, but Palestra says the Franklin County Elections Board has verified the accuracy of the residency of the McCain campaign individuals. All of McCains people have been accounted for and are in the clear.

These people breaking the voting laws need to be arrested and made an example of. As lawyers, they obviously knew what the registration laws were and went ahead and voted anyway. I’d like to see some jail time for these people.

UPDATE: Police Say HOAX (McCain Supporter Attacked)

Scroll down post for UPDATE! Thank you.

McCain Worker: Attacker Angered By GOP Sticker

Pittsburgh police are investigating after a volunteer for the Republican campaign says she was attacked by a mugger who became enraged after seeing a John McCain bumper sticker on her car last night.

According to police, Ashley Todd, 20, said she was robbed at an ATM at the corner of Liberty Avenue and Pearl Street in the Bloomfield area around 9 p.m. Wednesday after leaving a Republican phone bank.

Todd told police that the suspect, described only as a dark-skinned African-American man about 6'4", stole $60 from her and became enraged after seeing a bumper sticker supporting Republican Presidential Candidate John McCain on her car.

Todd, who is from Texas, said the suspect put a knife to her neck and demanded money.

Todd told police that the man became very angry after noticing the McCain sticker on her car and began punching and kicking her.

After repeatedly hitting, kicking and threatening her, Todd told police that the man carved a "B" in her cheek.

According to the police report, the officer confirmed that he "observed the wound on the right side of [her] face.

Todd declined immediate medical attention last night but said she would go to the hospital today.

The suspect ran off after the attack; but police are hoping that footage from bank surveillance camera may help lead them to the suspect.

In an official statement the McCain campaign says: "We're shaken up by this. It's sick and disgusting."

Governor Sarah Palin reportedly spoke with the victim by phone.

Meanwhile, late this afternoon, the Obama-Biden campaign released a statement, saying: "This is a horrendous act of violence. Our thoughts and prayers are with the young woman for her to make a speedy recovery, and we hope that the person who perpetrated this crime is swiftly apprehended and brought to justice."




She calls it a political attack -- a McCain campaign volunteer says she was attacked in Bloomfield.

Patrick Graham, the president of College Republicans in Pittsburgh, told KDKA that Todd works for the National College Republican Committee.

She's been in Pittsburgh about a week.

Graham said Todd was on her way to meeting, when she reported robbery and assault took place.

Among other things, police are checking security cameras in the neighborhood to see what, if anything, they may have recorded.

A photo obtained by the Drudge Report website showed Todd after the alleged assault.

However, KDKA could not verify the authenticity of the photo.

Pittsburgh Police did not take a photo of the woman.

Wild Thing's comment...........

I think Obama should be partly to blame for this. He told his followers to go out and " get in their faces", he tells at his website to go and protest at the McCain/Palin rallies. And his low life follwers obey him. His words of how terrible this attack was mean nothing just as he means nothing as a human being.

....Thank you Mark for sending this story to me.



Police: Campaign Volunteer Lied, Injured Self

At a news conference this afternoon, offiicals said they believe the woman's injuries were self-inflicted. Ashley Todd, 20, is now facing charges for filing a false report to police.

Filing a false report and interfering with police business , this is really sick!!!!!!

Times have changed, it use to be a scarlet A, now it’s a backwards B.

What she did messes with both McCain and Obama's campaign. I could give a rats ass about the Obama campaign but this is very serious what she did.

What she did deserves a stiff penalty - because she was messing with an election (in that it would probably influence voters) and in the fact that she made a racially charged false statement in a very volatile environment.

Retired Army Lt. Col. William Russell LEADS Murtha the Traitor in the Polls

New poll shows Russell over Murtha, 48-35

Thank you Michelle Malkin for the poll information.

“The most important variable here is that a decisive majority say it’s time for a new person,” said Jim Lee, president of Susquehanna Polling and Research. He attributed some of the unhappiness with Murtha to the congressman’s recent comments.

The Russell Brigade

As a 9-11 Pentagon survivor and Operation Iraqi Freedom veteran, Bill understands the sacred obligation civilian leaders owe to military personnel and their families. He’ll always honor their service and sacrifice.

Beyond a strong defense, Bill believes our national security policies must include an aggressive plan for energy independence, and the confrontation of radical, violent jihad.

Here’s where Bill stands on key national security issues:

Supports the ongoing winning of the War on Terror and radical jihad.
Supports tough border enforcement measures, and the prosecution of employers who hire illegal immigrants.
Supports energy independence through expanded domestic oil exploration and production, and the development of alternative energy sources.
Supports continued research, development and deployment of effective military technology to keep America safe.
Supports ensuring that our troops have the equipment and support they need to do the job they are ordered to do.
Supports full funding for veteran’s benefits and continued reform and improvement of military hospitals.
Supports making English the official language of the United States.
Supports American sovereignty. He opposes weakening America’s ability to protect her interests in either domestic or foreign policy.
Bill Russell believes that it’s time for America’s elected leaders to truly honor the service and sacrifice of America’s fighting men and women.

I am so excited about this. Keeping my fingers crossed and praying this lead continues for Russell!!

Republican HQ Manager's Home Shot Up Over McCain Signs


The home of a Central Florida Republican headquarters manager was shot up and damaged over his support of Sen. John McCain, the man told police.

Rog Coverely said several pellets pierced his Longwood home. Coverely showed several spiderwebbed-holes in the front windows of his home

The Republican manager said he is convinced he was targeted because of new McCain signs he added around his home.

"All I can tell you is this, I have a very good relationship with my neighbors," Coverely said. "I mow my lawn. The only thing that has changed is I have two McCain signs in my front yard."
Coverely said he has taken about 300 calls concerning stolen or vandalized McCain signs in the area.
"It says this campaign is getting vicious," Coverely said.
Coverely said it appears Democrats are becoming more aggressive in the county.
"I wouldn't say slipping, but I would say the Democrats have become far more aggressive in Seminole County because it is such a heavy Republican area," Coverely said.

Wild Thing's comment...........

I think there needs to be a thinning of the herd. ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒE

And there is this:

Police prepare for unrest on Election Day

The Hill

Police departments in cities across the country are beefing up their ranks for Election Day, preparing for possible civil unrest and riots after the historic presidential contest.

Public safety officials said in interviews with The Hill that the election, which will end with either the nation’s first black president or its first female vice president, demanded a stronger police presence.

Some worry that if Barack Obama loses and there is suspicion of foul play in the election, violence could ensue in cities with large black populations. Others based the need for enhanced patrols on past riots in urban areas (following professional sports events) and also on Internet rumors.

Cities that have suffered unrest before, such as Detroit, Chicago, Oakland and Philadelphia, will have extra police deployed.

In Oakland, the police will deploy extra units trained in riot control, as well as extra traffic police, and even put SWAT teams on standby.

“Are we anticipating it will be a riot situation? No. But will we be prepared if it goes awry? Yes,” said Jeff Thomason, spokesman for the Oakland Police Department

Obama is also paraphrasing James Cone the inventor of Black Liberation Theology, Obama's religion for 20 years.

This is more proof he lied about Wright, when saying "the man I saw yesterday was not the man I knew for 20 years".

The DNC has not put Obama up to run because they want to do something for race relations; in fact, they are absolutely exploiting the worst level of racial divide, splitting the country wide open in their drive for ultimate control over US.

Barack Hussein Obama Dictator Mentalilty Plans For Election Night

Flush with cash--and still begging donors for more--the Obama campaign is planning a $2 million dollar election night extravaganza at Chicago's lakefront Grant Park. Mayor Daley had suggested Obama use the United Center to keep the price down--but Celine Dion was already booked there for a Nov. 4 concert

The field is home to softball diamonds, the popular summer Lollapalooza music festival and was the site of the mass pope John Paul held in Chicago nearly 30 years ago.

It would not be the first big outdoor event for Obama. He announced his presidential run outside the old state capitol in Springfield on a very cold day last February and gave his nomination acceptance speech at Denver's Mile High Stadium.

Chicago Sun Times

Mayor Daley today put a $2 million price tag on the cost of city services associated with the giant Barack Obama election night rally in Grant Park.

Mayor Daley suggested the United Center as cheaper simpler alternative but was turned down.

The mayor said the cash-flushed Obama campaign has agreed to reimburse the city for those services because Chicago is grappling with a $465 million deficit and is in no position to pay for it.

Asked if he objected to Obama's decision to hold the rally in Grant Park, Daley said, "Could you see me saying no to Sen. Obama? Give me a break. I'm not that dumb."
The mayor said the indoor United Center "would be much easier but the campaign so far ... wants to do it in the open. They applied for the permit."
Daley acknowledged that the Grant Park rally would create a logistical nightmare. "You'd have to secure buildings, close down buildings," he said.
"You need sanitation. ... You have to secure the CTA. You have to have traffic people. ... You have close streets seven to eight hours before."

FOX news

A huge stage is being constructed in Chicago's Grant Park, where Obama hopes to declare victory before a cheering throng that could dwarf the one at the Democratic convention. Back then, "only" 80,000 fans were in attendance that night. This time, it could be hundreds of thousands in the park and its surroundings

Obama is well on his way to winning the election, according to most polls and electoral vote projections. The campaign may be preparing to set the champagne on ice. But it may want to heed the usual reminder: As Yogi Berra famously said, it ain't over till it's over.

The excitement is palpable at Obama's rallies, a tone the candidate has reflected. "I feel like we got a righteous wind at our backs here," Obama told supporters in Leesburg, Va., Wednesday evening.

He said the Grant Park event will be free and open to the public.

Wild Thing's comment.........

Obama getting cocky and planning another “big” event. Counting those chickens a bit early??

Honoring the Marines of The Bombing of The Marine Barracks in Beirut

This month marks the 25th Anniversary of the bombing of the Marine Barracks in Beirut, Lebanon on 23 Oct 2008.

On Sunday, October 23,1983 at approximately 6:20 a.m. 241 Marines, sailors and soldiers were killed and hundreds of others were wounded or disabled.

This was the result of a suicide truck, laden with explosives carrying the equivilant of 20,000 pounds of TNT that detonated on the ground floor of BLT 1/8 headquarters barracks in Beirut, Lebanon. The largest non-nuclear explosion of its time.

Other servicemen from 1982-1984 perished from sniper fire and other atrocities.

Others died years later or are permantly disabled as the result of their wounds. This makes a total of 270 Marines, sailors and soldiers that died during a peacekeeping mission.

We honor the memory of those Marines who paid the ultimate price on that dreadful day.

More Of The Obama Rally In Miami

Miami Obama Rally: Supporters Demand Piece of the Pie

Barack Obama rally in Miami, FL......Haitian Ra Ra band marching along with the crowd

More Haitian's for Obama

Not all blacks are voting for Obama. This is the first I have heard of them.

The group of mostly Black men men held signs that read, Blacks against Obama, Jesse Jackson hates Obama, Obama for abortions, Obama for gay marriage and Obama endorsed by the KKK.

They are said to be part of a Miami based group called Blacks Against Obama . They have shown up at all the Obama rallies in Florida, Tampa, Coral Gables, University of Miami etc.

During Obamas speech in Coral Gables, Florida, a sea of protest signs greeted him which interrupted his message. The signs contained various messages on them all under the auspices of Blacks Against Obama.

Although Obama told the crowd it was fine for protesters to be there, behind the scenes his campaign staffers did something else. The entire group was physically escorted out of the political event in a manner resembling Hells Angels security at a rock concert. One moment of the video captures what might be a hand-signal from Obama himself.

Nobody should object to removing protesters from a public event convened to express ideas. The crowd is there to hear Obama speak, and even well-intentioned protests interfere with Obamas own first amendment right to free speech.

What may raise eyebrows is how the large team of security guards descended on the crowd like wolves. Nobody wants to live in a police state where political protests are broken up abruptly simply to allow a political candidate to deliver the usual stump speech.

One expects that Obama will coach his vigilant backers on how to better handle the situation in the future.

Wild Thing's comment.........

Obama speaking like a true socialist! Obama uses his Jesse Jackson voice and intonation when addressing layabouts who see government as a source of largesse.A real demagogue.

A Newscast From a Future I Pray We Never See

A newscast from a future we must never see

Newscast of the future


by Janet Porter

This week, I decided to do something different – my column is in video form. It's a newscast from a future we must make sure we never see. In it, you'll get a glimpse into our nation should Barack Obama be elected president – complete with the kinds of people he'll appoint and policies he'll enact based on Sen. Obama's real promises, positions, record and advisers. It would be comical if it weren't so scary. It is an eye-opening look at what the future could hold if we don't do everything we can to prevent it.

I encourage you to watch it (rather than read it) and forward it to everyone you know in an effort to sound the alarm before it's too late … or the news we watch next January will look something like this:

Iranian Parliament Said Iran Would Prefer Obama ~ Will ACORN Be En-route To Get Them Registered ?

Larijani: Iran prefers Obama (Iranian Parliament Leader Endorsment!)

Ynet news

Iranian parliament Speaker Ali Larijani said Wednesday that Iran would prefer Democrat Barack Obama in the White House next year. Larijani also dismissed any idea that the US would attack Iran.

"We are leaning more in favor of Barack Obama because he is more flexible and rational, even though we know American policy will not change that much," Larijani said at a press conference during a visit to Bahrain.
How to deal with Iran and the crisis over its nuclear drive has been one of the foreign policy issues in the Nov. 4 race for the White House between Obama and Republican John McCain.
Larijani, a leading figure in the conservative camp in Iran, also said the United States was too busy dealing with the global financial crisis to consider waging an attack on Iran.
"The risk was low before," he said. "But now I am 100% certain that the United States will not unleash a war against Iran. The economic crisis has cost the United States $1.4 trillion and Washington is working to resolve its internal problems and not a war."

Wild Thing's comment..........

All of America’s enemies endorse Obama.

Castro, Hamas, PLO, other terroriosts groups, now Larijani....oh let's not forget Powell. hahaha ...Our enemies will always prefer the weaker candidate

We Voted Yesterday and YES for the BEST Candidates McCain/Palin!!!

As much as Obama wants to be President, that is how much John McCain and Sarah Palin love America.


We voted yesterday, the line was not long at all only about 70 people ahead of us, but we had perfect timing I think because as we were leaving the line was very long, cars lined up to pull into the parking lot and down the block.

There were lots of McCain/Palin signs and only one Obama sign within the legal distance they are allowed to have them. Only one for Obama. hahhaa yippee, we out numbered him. The ladies holding the signs many of them had cute Sarah Palin t-shirts on, some in pink saying Sarah Palin and others in red,white and blue saying McCain/Palin.

The men holding up signs, were Veterans and it was so cool they had their caps on with the Veteran pins on them that I love to see.

We gave every one of them a thumbs up and shook their hands when we came back out from voting. They said they were getting a lot more thumbs up then ugly looks so that is great too.

When we got inside to vote, I just had to say something, heh heh, as the lady was looking at my drivers license for ID etc. I asked her if I "may ask a question?". She said yes and I asked her if the voting place had ACORN connected to it in anyway. hahahahaha She said no and the gentlemen behind her standing looked at me and smiled really big like saying I know what you mean kind of look. giggle

We met a really nice couple in front of us. In a quiet voice I said to Nicholas while we were in line, " I loved the shirts for McCain Palin outside" and the couple in front of us turned around to say hi after I said that. It was my let's see if anyone in front or in back of us is for McCain/Palin time. hahaha

Our ballots are paper and we mark them with a black pen they give us like a felt pen. It is not electric at all. Then the slip we have marked goes into a light cardboard sleeve they called "Secret Sleeve" that I had to put into a machine that literally sucked it out of my hand. hahahahahaa ZOOM and my vote was done.

Now we wait and pray our votes get counted and McCain/Palin win.

Democrat Senator Jeff Bingaman Wants A Push to Reinstate the 'Fairness Doctrine'

Senator Jeff Bingaman (D-NM) was asked by KKOB talk-radio host Jim Villanucci if, "There would be a push to reinstate the 'Fairness Doctrine'?" His answer was, "I hope so." Like all liberals, he thinks free speech should be protected just as long as all the speakers agree with him.

Senator Bingaman also said all media should be regulated "at a higher level." Does he want America to end up like the old Soviet Union where all speech was controlled.??!!!!



Before the Fairness Doctrine was lifted by Ronaldus Magnus in the late eighties, I think it was 1987, you know how many radio stations were doing talk, Senator Bingaman? One hundred and twenty-five. And you know what was on those stations? I mean sometimes from midnight to six you'd get the wild wackos, the provocational political people, but most of the time it was the correct carrot cake recipe for the holidays, where the next traffic problem was going to be in town. Then you'd have a little segment where if your dog was lost you could call the station, and do lost animal reports. All of this wonderful stuff that nobody wanted to listen to, Senator. One hundred twenty-five talk stations. Senator Bingaman, do you know how many talk radio stations there are in America today? Try over 2,000 since the Fairness Doctrine was lifted, and on those 2,000 radio stations are countless points of view, from the extreme communist left to the wacko whatever it is way out on the fringe right. They're all over the place.
What Bingaman is saying here is, (paraphrasing) "Well, it's not that. We want every station to be balanced." What he wants is for this kind of programming to be stopped. Because of the way the Fairness Doctrine worked and will work, especially the way it will work if it's ever reinstituted, reimplemented, within five minutes of my show open, 15 or more extremist groups in every city carrying this program will call the station carrying this show, demanding a response to the outrageous thing that I have just said. And then, after the next ten minutes, they would call again. After an hour, the management of the local station would probably have received over 150 phone calls demanding a chance and an opportunity to reply.
At which point the manager says, "I can't keep up with this. In order to maintain my license, I'm going to have to do all this and grant all these people all this access. I gotta put amateurs on the radio? I gotta put talentness, complaining whiners on the radio? I'm not going to mess with it." And that's how it works. It's not that the Fairness Doctrine is passed and all of us go away. It's that local stations will not put up with the grief they're going to get. And that's what Senator Bingaman and that's what the Democrats want. They don't want balanced programming on a radio station. They want no conservative programming on a radio station. He sounds all concerned and educated here, but make no mistake.

Wild Thing's comment.........

God what is this country coming to! Censorship and Socialism march hand in hand.

The left intends to silence any dissenting opinions, BECAUSE THEIR IDEOLOGY IS INDEFENSIBLE. The Fairness Doctrine...broadcasting Socialism 24 hours a day!

Following Senator Bingaman's remarks, the program director Pat Frisch came on with the talk-radio host Jim Villanucci and blasted Bingaman as an “idiot”.

Then the callers joined in and were besides themselves with anger at this clown.

Please, America. WAKE UP!!!! We are on the edge of a horrific future. 1984 was not written about right wingers. It was written about Obama and his gang of hooligans. How can we be this close to such a future?

Good book about this............


The alternative-media revolution of the last twenty years has smashed the liberal monopoly over news outlets and created a true marketplace of ideas. Rather than fight back with their own beliefs, today’s liberals work relentlessly to smother this new universe of political discourse under a tangle of campaign finance reform and media regulations.

Bestselling author Brian Anderson and Adam Thierer examine the crucial place of free political speech in our nation’s history, from the feisty polemics of Revolutionary-era pamphlets to the explosion of new media in the twenty-first century. Today, shockingly, freedom of political speech in America is facing sustained attacks unlike anything since the Alien and Sedition Acts of 1798.


"Brian Anderson and Adam Thierer have written an important book about the future of media freedom and why we must be vigilant in defending that freedom against unjust and undemocratic regulatory proposals like the Fairness Doctrine. This timely and concise manifesto serves as a rallying cry for that cause." —Congressman Mike Pence, Indiana
"Brian Anderson is that rare analyst who has conducted scholarly research, edits a distinguished Old Media public policy journal, but has also written extensively on the importance of New Media and pop culture. He and Adam Thierer were among the first to grasp how the New Media was reshaping politics and cultural attitudes. That makes them especially qualified to now warn about the dangers that government regulation is about to pose to media democratization." —John Fund, columnist at the Wall Street Journal

"From radio talk to political campaigning, the First Amendment is under sustained assault. In this concise, thin volume, Anderson and Thierer demonstrate with concrete examples how a combination of self-interested politicians, left-wing partisanship, and public ignorance about technology and media markets have created the most serious threat to free speech in America since the Red Scare." —Bradley Smith, former FEC Chairman

Hey Obama Keep Your Racist Powell~ McCain Has Stormin' Norman and 300 Retired Generals and Admirals

Nicknamed Stormin’ Norman and the Bear and best known as Com-manding General, Coalition Forces, Persian Gulf War, 1990–1991, General Schwarzkopf had a 35-year military career (1956–1991) that spanned the Cold War, the intervening Vietnam War, and the increasing overseas deployments of the 1980s. A U.S. Military Academy graduate, he served two tours in Vietnam and rose to the grade of full general in 1988.

While deserving his nicknames "the bear" and "Stormin' Norman" because of his impatience, aggressiveness, and confrontational manner, Schwarzkopf displayed outstanding skills in combining the air, sea, and land assets of a multinational force to achieve victory.

Asked on CNN whether America's latest popular culture hero preferred the sobriquet Stormin' Norman or the Bear, Brenda Schwarzkopf, the wife of Gen. H. Norman Schwarzkopf, answered: "I think he prefers the Bear. Stormin' Norman -- I'm not sure exactly where he picked that up. His soldiers gave him both names, but I'm not sure exactly which came first."

In light of Colon Powell's endorsement of Marxism in the upcoming Predidential election, I thought it might be useful to remind us of the endorsement John McCain received from a real American hero, retired General "Stormin'" Norman Schwarzkopf, and this was back in January.

Schwarzkopf, who with McCain in 2004 was openly critical of then-Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld over his handling of the Iraq war, said in a statement the Arizona senator "has served our country with honor in war and in peace."

Stormin' Norman lives in Florida.

Add in to this 300 Retired Generals and Admirals from around the country are endorsing John McCain for president. The retired generals and admirals announced their support with the following letter:

"We have had the honor and privilege of serving as career officers in the United States Armed Forces, and of serving shoulder to shoulder with so many of the fine young men and women who are the backbone of America's Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps and Coast Guard. It is that experience that informs our judgment that John McCain is the presidential candidate best suited to serve as America's Commander-in Chief from the day of his inauguration.

"Our next president will confront national security challenges as significant as those faced by any administration in at least a generation. Success will require a leader with proven tenacity, judgment and courage. It will also require a leader with detailed knowledge of our military and other instruments of national power, and with years of experience dealing seriously with foreign leaders.

"John McCain's entire life has been devoted to the service of America. Throughout a long and distinguished career in the military and in Congress, he has repeatedly displayed the courage and integrity to place America's interests first -- regardless of personal cost. And he has demonstrated the experience and wisdom to lead America -- and, importantly, our allies -- in effectively dealing with complex and vitally important national security challenges around the world.

"We unequivocally endorse him to continue his service to the country as the next President of the United States."

300 Retired Generals And Admirals Endorse John McCain For President

Wild Thing's comment.......

I have posted the list before, but I thought it would be good to mention it again.

Obama can't even compare his wimpy racist Powell endorsement with the hundreds that are for McCain and Palin.

Just something to show you.

Carol Black Bearhearts Original, created on October 5, 1992 in California , Stormin' Norman is named after General Norman Schwartzkopf and is authentically dressed from his desert fatigues right down to his helmet,
two watches, official ID's, his backpack, rations and American flag. He is stuffed with desert sand!

Carol is a friend of mine and she made 5 of these bears. The first one she got to present to Stormin' Norman personally and she has photos of her visit. I was very lucky to be able to get one of the 5 she made.

He sits in my SUV and is about 2 1/2 feet in height when standing position.

So yep, I have liked Stormin' Norman for a long time.

Obama to Media:Pony Up For Election Night Access

Obama to media: pony up for election night access

Chicago Business

The best-funded political campaign in American history says news organizations will have to pay — in some cases almost $2,000 each — if they want to cover Barack Obama’s election-night celebration in Chicago.

A memo sent to news organizations on Tuesday by the Obama campaign says credentials will cost $715 to $1,815, depending on whether electrical and phone lines are needed and whether an indoor or outdoor seat is requested for the event, which is expected to be held outside the evening of Nov. 4 in Grant Park.

The only free admissions are for a “general media” area. But, the memo says, “Please note that the general media area is outdoors, unassigned and may have obstructed views . . . standing room only.”

The area also does not include access to top Obama campaign officials, whose statements likely are to be in hot demand on Election Night. They apparently will be available only in the “press file” tent, to which an additional admission fee of $935 per person is being imposed.

Obama aides declined to answer questions about why a campaign that raised $150 million in the month of September is demanding such payments. But the memo already is drawing some protest.

In her blog on the Chicago Sun-Times’ Web site, Lynn Sweet, the paper’s veteran Washington bureau chief, termed the memo “an outrageous pay-to-play plan that caters to national elite (media) outlets.”

While many reporters can do without the electricity, Internet access, food and other items that come with some event prices, they must “crave” access, and for that they will have to pay, Ms. Sweet wrote.

One Obama spokesman privately likened the Chicago event to how coverage is arranged at national political conventions. But at both the Democratic and GOP conventions this summer, news organizations had to pay extra only if they wanted a dedicated phone line. Most credentials came with assigned seats, all were indoors with views of the stage and all were free.

A spokesman later said that the fees will only pay the costs of, for instance, building risers with a view of the stage. He also said that since the file tent will be located in the middle of the general media area, reporters will be able to stop and question any senior aides who are traveling to the file tent. The tent will include no “spin room” for briefings, the spokesman added.

Media traditionally are charged for out-of-pocket costs in traveling with campaigns. For instance, those accompanying Mr. Obama and GOP nominee John McCain around the country pay their own hotel bills and a fee for air fare. But a fee rarely if ever is charged for the coverage itself.

Wild Thing's comment..........

Unbelievable. Obama's charging the media to cover his concession speech. These dopes will pay too.

So it looks like front row seats for the freak show are expensive.

This is how this Barack Hussein Obama will run the country: Pay for play. A sitting US Senator and would-be president CHARGING the media for access.

The only good news out of this is that the lap-dog media that has done its level best to turn this from an election to a coronation is now seeing exactly what is about to happen: You have all the access you want as log as the money changes hands at the time and in he amounts we demand.

Obama campaign is almost flaunting their election-night celebration planning process.

He is actually doing this to the media that has done their best to give the election to him. LMAO

Does this mean that Chris Mathews will have to pay to get that warm tingle up his leg???

wish he would start his own country and get the heck out of ours. This gets more unbelievable every day.

Waterboarded or pay to see Obama up close and personal........

Obama Reiterating That He’s a Socialist Has Crowd Chanting "We want Pie"

"We want Pie!"..."We want Pie!"...."We want Pie!"....."We want Pie!"......."We want Pie!"

The Wall Street Journal

In Miami, he responded to McCain’s criticism that his economic plan amounts to redistributing wealth and dividing up a static economic pie rather than expanding the pie. “After eight years of Bush and McCain economics, the pie is shrinking, and what’s left of the pie has been eaten by millionaires and billionaires,” he declared. “Everyone here wants some pie.”

To that, the crowd struck up the chant, “We want pie! We want pie!”

Wild Thing's comment............

This is an excellent example of the socialist mentality. And gosh why didn't they ask for ask for lobster and Iranian cavier. heh heh

LOL As Glenn Beck said the other day, “Make your own Pie! America is a freakin bakery!”

You know all this socialsim thinking of these Obama voters, I am really ashamed that these people are Americans!!!!

This Barack Hussein Obama commie rally was next door to a Miami Heat game and he had the rally just before the game. My guess is they gave away free tickets to the game if you showed up for the rally. The park will not hold 30,000 too. Downtown Miami is close to Black neighborhoods , so drawing 30,000 people is not that big a deal. My guess is he pulled 10,000 and probably 5,000 were going to the Heat game right next to the park.

I tried to find a video of the chanting but they don't have one. The only video's from Miami are Obama and his hate filled speech about McCain and Palin.
But look at this below.............Barack and Michelle are both using Pie as a mantra.

...(West Philadelphia, Pennsylvania about the current status of the economic turmoil happening across the world and pie... in fact Barack Obama sets a Philadelphia record for most times Pie is mentioned in one story under 100 seconds!!)......

Michelle Obama used the pie analogy too. "Someone is going to have to give up a piece of their pie so that someone else can have more."...quote by Michelle Obama

Barack Hussein Obama's Indebtedness To Extremist Islam

By Daniel Pipes

The title of the article is : Would Obama Pass a Standard Security Clearance?

I have posted on this I thnk last week but this one is by Daniel Pipes and is excellent and has another take on it too with added information that is really good to know. ---- Wild Thing

With Colin Powell now repeating the lie that Barack Obama has "always been a Christian," despite new information further confirming Obama's Muslim childhood (such as the Indonesian school registration listing him as Muslim), one watches with dismay as the Democratic candidate manages to hide the truth on this issue.

Instead, then, let us review a related subject – Obama's connections and even indebtedness, throughout his career, to extremist Islam. Specifically, he has longstanding, if indirect ties to two institutions, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), listed by the U.S. government in 2007 as an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas-funding trial; and the Nation of Islam (NoI), condemned by the Anti-Defamation League for its "consistent record of racism and anti-Semitism."

Kenny Gamble, or Luqman Abdul-Haqq, "amir" of the United Muslim Movement.

Louis Farrakhan, who calls Obama "the Messiah."

First, Obama's ties to Islamists:

The Khalid al-Mansour connection: According to former Manhattan Borough president Percy Sutton, Al-Mansour "was raising money for" Obama's expenses at Harvard Law School. Al-Mansour, a black American (né Don Warden), became advisor to Saudi prince Al-Walid bin Talal, CAIR's largest individual donor. Al-Mansour holds standard Islamist views: he absolves the Islamist government in Sudan of sponsoring slavery, he denies a Jewish tie to Jerusalem, and he wrote a booklet titled "Americans Beware! The Zionist Plot Against S. Arabia." (Both Obama and al-Mansour deny Sutton's account.)
The Kenny Gamble (also known as Luqman Abdul-Haqq) connection: Gamble, a once-prominent pop music producer, cut the ribbon to the Obama campaign headquarters housed in a south Philadelphia building he owns. Gamble is an Islamist who buys large swaths of real estate in Philadelphia to create a Muslim-only residential area. Also, as the self-styled "amir" of the United Muslim Movement, he has many links to Islamist organizations, including CAIR and the Muslim Alliance in North America. (MANA's "amir" is Siraj Wahhaj, an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.)
The Mazen Asbahi connection: The Obama campaign's first Muslim outreach coordinator resigned after it came to light that he had served on the board of a subsidiary of the Saudi-sponsored North American Islamic Trust, with Jamal Said, another unindicted co-conspirator in the 2007 Hamas funding trial. Asbahi has ties to CAIR's Chicago and Detroit offices, to the Islamic Society of North America, yet another unindicted co-conspirator in the Hamas funding trial, and to other Islamist organizations.
The Minha Husaini connection: The campaign's second Muslim outreach coordinator has an Islamist background, having served as an intern in the Muslim Public Service Network. Immediately upon her appointment by Obama, she met with a group of about thirty Muslims including such notorious figures as CAIR's Nihad Awad; the Muslim American Society's Mahdi Bray, who has publicly supported the Hamas and Hezbollah terrorist groups; and Johari Abdul Malik of the Dar Al-Hijrah Mosque in Falls Church, Va., who has advised American Muslims: "You can blow up bridges, but you cannot kill people who are innocent on their way to work."

Second, Obama's ties to the Nation of Islam:

Obama's long-time donor and ally Antoin "Tony" Rezko partnered for nearly three decades with Jabir Herbert Muhammad, a son of NoI leader Elijah Muhammad, and says he gave Jabir and his family "millions of dollars over the years." Rezko also served as executive director of the Muhammad Ali Foundation, a rogue organization that, without Ali's permission, exploited the name of this CAIR awardee.

Jeremiah Wright, Obama's esteemed pastor for twenty years, came out of a Nation background, recently he accepted protection from an NoI security detail, and has praised Louis Farrakhan, the NoI's leader, as one of the "giants of the African American religious experience." Wright's church celebrated Farrakhan for his having "truly epitomized greatness."

Farrakhan himself endorsed Obama, calling him "the hope of the entire world," "one who can lift America from her fall," and even "the Messiah."

That Obama's biography touches so frequently on such unsavory organizations as CAIR and the Nation of Islam should give pause. How many of politicians have a single tie to either group, much less seven of them? John McCain charitably calls Obama "a person you do not have to be scared [of] as president of the United States," but Obama's multiple links to anti-Americans and subversives mean he would fail the standard security clearance process for Federal employees.

Islamic aggression represents America's strategic enemy; Obama's many insalubrious connections raise grave doubts about his fitness to serve as America's commander-in-chief.

Wild Thing's comment..........

I don't think I will ever understand why information like this does not matter to people deciding who to vote for. Including all the other things we have found out about Obama.

Can there be so many in our country that are pro Muslim, or pro terrorists? The media, most of it anyway had mocked the information about Ayers and the terrorists groups that have endorsed Obama and his money coming in from very questionable groups against America.

Are we overrun by Socialists and communists or just totally determined people to remain ignorant.

There is something inside of me that thinks that many of those saying they will vote for Obama will stand there in the voting booth and just before they mark Obama's name will have a gut wrenching second thought of the facts they have heard, the doubt it has put in their minds, the knowledge that America HAS been the best, most awesome country in the entire world....... and then they will see there is no way they can vote for this phone, liar, communist wanna be dictator whose idea of change is from Capitalism and land of the free and home of the brave to Socialism and communism, and people being terrified to say what their thoughts are for fear of being arrested.

America is awesome and there is a strength to her, we have fought off things before and this may be a HUGE one this time, we can do it and must never give up.

....Thank you Mark for sending this to me.

John Bolton Talks About Joe Biden's Remarks and Obama

Senator McCain at a rally this morning in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, talking about Biden.

MCCAIN: Senator Biden told their campaign donors that when that crisis hit, they would have to stand with them because it wouldn't be apparent that Senator Obama would have the right response! Forget apparent. We know Senator Obama won't have the right response. (cheers and applause) We've seen the wrong response from him over and over during this campaign. He opposed the surge strategy that is bringing us victory in Iraq and will bring us victory in Afghanistan. (cheers and whistles) He said he would sit down unconditionally with the world's worst dictators. (boos) When Russia invaded Georgia, Senator Obama said the invaded country, Georgia -- a small, teeny country -- should show restraint. He's been wrong on all of them.

And here is what Gov. Sarah Palin had to say.

PALIN: I guess the looming crisis that most worries the Obama campaign right now is Joe Biden's next speaking engagement. (laughter) The real problem is that these warnings from Joe Biden are similar to his earlier assessment. Remember, throughout the primary -- it wasn't that long ago -- he said, Barack Obama wasn't up to the job, he's not ready to be president. He said, I quote, "The presidency is not something that lends itself to on-the-job training." The same Joe Biden said he would be "honored to run" on the ticket with John McCain because, he said, "the country would be better off with John McCain."

Wild Thing's comment.........

What a HUGE difference in our side and the socialist, communist, marxist side. I would hate to get up in the morning if I thought like the left does.

B-17 Flight Offers Veterans A Journey Back In Time

EAA is offering historic flight experiences in its beautifully restored B-17G Flying Fortress “Aluminum Overcast.” This aircraft is an example of the American heavy bomber that helped turn the tide of battle in World War II. Fly a mission back in time and feel the might of this magnificent aircraft, just as those brave young men did more than 50 years ago.

LINK to their website

B-17 flight offers veterans a journey back in time



Hunter Gates peered out a window of the World War II bomber as it lumbered down the runway, his left hand propped on a cane and his memories passing like the landscape outside.

"I'm just hoping I get to land in this one," the 86-year-old said with grin.

The last time Gates flew in a B-17 Flying Fortress like this - Feb. 14, 1945 - it was shot out of the sky over Germany.

Gates was one of several World War II veterans who got a ride Monday in one of only about a dozen B-17s still airworthy. The plane is in Jackson this week as part of the Experimental Aircraft Association's Salute to Veterans tour.

This plane, a sleek silver bomber named the "Aluminum Overcast," tours the country each year. The public is invited to take a ground tour or buy a ride at Hawkins Field in Jackson on Tuesday and Wednesday.

The association uses the plane to promote interest in aviation and war history and to honor men like Bill Ruddock, an 85-year-old pilot who flew 46 missions in a B-17, and Gates.

"This airplane - the 17 - is a piece of history," said Larry Gray, a flight engineer for the group. "It almost won the war by itself, it really did."

The plane's next stops are in Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona.

After four roaring radial engines lifted the bomber off the pavement at Hawkins Field in Jackson, Gates put down his cane. He slowly made his way to the front of the plane and climbed into a small opening just behind the cockpit.

There, in the "chin turret," the glass nose of the plane offered a panoramic view of clear blue skies and the city below. It was in this spot on a similar B-17 that Gates manned a machine gun during World War II and toggled the bombs that were dropped over Europe.

Gates, of Jackson, left his studies at the University of Mississippi to enlist in the military after the war broke out, and was on his 10th mission when his plane was hit by German anti-aircraft fire.

Eight of the 10 men aboard made it out before the plane exploded; the other two died.

"They were waiting for me when I hit the ground," Gates recalled of enemy soldiers. "I was right in front of the Siegfried line. There were thousands of German troops."

Gates was a prisoner of war for two months until Germany surrendered.

Ruddock, who also flew more than 100 missions in a B-29 over Korea, was more fortunate when he was shot down over Yugoslavia. Sympathetic locals hid him and his men in hay carts and helped them get back to friendly territory.

"It was a good airplane. It was tough," Ruddock said after Monday's flight. "You don't know how many guns were shooting at us."

Wild Thing's comment..........

Its awesome to hear stories. Years ago I had a chance to get inside ia B17 and it was so exciting. To be inside and imagine what it was like for those brave men was really something.

Army Spc. Stephen Fortunato,Killed Tuesday in Afghanistan, Tells Why He Served

SPC Fortunato was serving in the US Army’s 26th Infantry Regiment and worked as a gunner on a Humvee.

The following is a blog entry written on Aug. 30, 2008, by Army Specialist Stephen Fortunato, who was killed Tuesday in Afghanistan when the vehicle he was riding in was blown up by an improvised explosive device. This entry was forwarded to the Globe by his mother, Elizabeth “Betty” Crawford.


Boston Globe

Michelle Malkin

If I may …
I’d like to say something….Just to get it out there so it is clear.
To all the pampered and protected Americans who feel it is their duty to inform me that I am not fighting for their freedom, and that i am a pawn in Bush’s agenda of greed and oil acquisition: Noted, and [expletive deleted] You.

I am not a robot. i am not blind or ignorant to the state of the world or the implications of the “war on terrorism.” i know that our leaders have made mistakes in the handling of a very sensitive situation, but do not for one second think that you can make me lose faith in what we, meaning America’s sons, daughters, fathers, and mothers in uniform are doing.

I am doing my part in fighting a very real enemy of the United States, i.e. Taliban, Al Qaida, and various other radical sects of Islam that have declared war on our way of life. Unless you believe the events of 9/11 were the result of a government conspiracy, which by the way would make you a MORON, there is no reasonable argument you can make against there being a true and dangerous threat that needs to be dealt with. i don’t care if there are corporations leaching off the war effort to make money, and i don’t care if you don’t think our freedom within America’s borders is actually at stake. i just want to kill those who would harm my family and friends. it is that simple. Even if this is just a war for profit or to assert America’s power, so what? Someone has to be on top and I want it to be us. There’s nothing wrong with wishing prosperity for your side.

I am a proud American. i believe that my country allows me to live my life more or less however i want to, and believe me, i have seen what the alternative of that looks like. i also believe that our big scary government does way more than it has to to help complete [expletive deleted]-ups get back on their feet, a stark comparison to places where leaders just line their own pockets with gold while allowing the people who gave them their power and privilage to starve. I have chosen my corner. I back my country, and am proud to defend it against aggressors. Also, if you dare accuse us of being inhumane, or overly aggressive because we have rolled into someone else’s country and blown some [expletive deleted] up and shot some people, let me remind you of just how inhumane we COULD be in defending ourselves. Let me remind you that we have a warhead that drops multiple bomblets from the stratosphere which upon impact, would turn all the sand in Iraq to glass, and reduce every living thing there to dust. Do we use it? No. Instead we use the most humane weapon ever devised: the American soldier. We send our bravest (and perhaps admitably craziest) men and women into enemy territory, into harms way, to root out those whom we are after and do our best to leave innocent lives unscathed.

…One last thing…a proposal. i know it has been stated time and time again but i just think it is worthy of reiteration. If you find yourself completely disgusted with the way America is being ran, and how we handle things on the global stage, you can leave. Isn’t that amazing? No one will stop you! If you are an anarchist, there are places you can go where there is no government to tell you anything. That’s right…you are left solely to your own devices and you can handle the men who show up at your door with AKs in any way that you see fit. Just don’t try good old American debate tactics on them because you will most likely end up bound and blind-folded, to have your head chopped off on the internet so your parents can see it. However if you insist on staying here and taking advantage of privilages such as free speach and WIC, keep the counter-productive [expletive deleted] to a minimum while the grown ups figure out how to handle this god-awful mess in the middle east.


Wild Thing's comment..........

Rest in Peace Army Spc. Stephen Fortunato. Prayers for your family and loved ones.

Army Spc. Stephen Fortunato is one of our heroes and will never be forgotten.

Dr. Marion D. Thorpe, Jr for Congress,District 23 - Florida

Marion D. Thorpe Jr., MD MPH

U.S. Congressional Candidate
District 23 - Florida


Thorpe has gained the Republican nomination to challenge Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-Fla.) in the 2008 congressional elections. And I have posted about the horrible, vile Alcee Hastings before. -- Wild Thing

Dr. Thorpe regarding the BAILOUT:

"We must ask ourselves what this action will teach our children. The answer is easy to deduce, as follows: The message that this bailout sends to our youth indicates that personal responsibility no longer matters.

" I am profoundly disappointed that my opponent, the Honorable Alcee Hastings, who has claimed to represent the interests of his constituents since first being elected in 1992, is a strong proponent of the bailout, including the original Democratic bill which was full of insidious measures that helped large corporations but did nothing for the middle class.
The people of US Congressional District 23 need a clear signal that our government will heretofore facilitate conditions that promote the success and independence of hard working families, not bail out large banks that make bad decisions. While the Democratic proposal was shocking, and Republican support for it constitutes an unfortunate act of folly, Mr. Hastings’ support of both bills is unfathomable.
Having immersed myself in District 23 for the last 5 years, I know the real struggles facing our community. For this reason, I highly support and promote personal responsibility as the soundest method of correcting the multiple deficits of our community. You have my word that my Congressional vote will be cast in a manner that helps small family businesses in the district survive during tough times while simultaneously ensuring that my people thrive in all parts of US Congressional District 23."

Joe Biden Terrified of An Obama Presidency and Shows How McCain Is Better In Crisis!

This one is an updated video has a few more statements included but a little harder to hear.

Biden to Supporters: "Gird Your Loins", For the Next President "It's Like Cleaning Augean Stables"

abc news

Sen. Joe Biden, D-Del., on Sunday guaranteed that if elected, Sen. Barack Obama., D-Ill., will be tested by an international crisis within his first six months in power and he will need supporters to stand by him as he makes tough, and possibly unpopular, decisions.

"Mark my words," the Democratic vice presidential nominee warned at the second of his two Seattle fundraisers Sunday. "It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy. The world is looking. We're about to elect a brilliant 47-year-old senator president of the United States of America. Remember I said it standing here if you don't remember anything else I said. Watch, we're gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy."
"I can give you at least four or five scenarios from where it might originate," Biden said to Emerald City supporters, mentioning the Middle East and Russia as possibilities. "And he's gonna need help. And the kind of help he's gonna need is, he's gonna need you - not financially to help him - we're gonna need you to use your influence, your influence within the community, to stand with him. Because it's not gonna be apparent initially, it's not gonna be apparent that we're right."

Not only will the next administration have to deal with foreign affairs issues, Biden warned, but also with the current economic crisis.

"Gird your loins," Biden told the crowd. "We're gonna win with your help, God willing, we're gonna win, but this is not gonna be an easy ride. This president, the next president, is gonna be left with the most significant task. It's like cleaning the Augean stables, man. This is more than just, this is more than – think about it, literally, think about it – this is more than just a capital crisis, this is more than just markets. This is a systemic problem we have with this economy."
"I've forgotten more about foreign policy than most of my colleagues know, so I'm not being falsely humble with you. I think I can be value added, but this guy has it," the Senate Foreign Relations chairman said of Obama. "This guy has it. But he's gonna need your help. Because I promise you, you all are gonna be sitting here a year from now going, 'Oh my God, why are they there in the polls? Why is the polling so down? Why is this thing so tough?' We're gonna have to make some incredibly tough decisions in the first two years. So I'm asking you now, I'm asking you now, be prepared to stick with us. Remember the faith you had at this point because you're going to have to reinforce us."
"There are gonna be a lot of you who want to go, 'Whoa, wait a minute, yo, whoa, whoa, I don't know about that decision'," Biden continued. "Because if you think the decision is sound when they're made, which I believe you will when they're made, they're not likely to be as popular as they are sound. Because if they're popular, they're probably not sound."

Biden emphasized that the mountainous Afghanistan-Pakistan border is of particular concern, with Osama bin Laden "alive and well" and Pakistan "bristling with nuclear weapons."

"You literally can see what these kids are up against, our kids in that region," Biden said in recalling when his helicopter was forced down due to a snowstorm there. "The place is crawling with al Qaeda. And it's real."
"We do not have the military capacity, nor have we ever, quite frankly, in the last 20 years, to dictate outcomes," he cautioned. "It's so much more important than that. It's so much more complicated than that. And Barack gets it."

After speaking for just over a quarter of an hour, Biden noticed the media presence in the back of the small ballroom.

"I probably shouldn't have said all this because it dawned on me that the press is here," he joked.
"All kidding aside, these guys have left us in a God-awful place," he then said of the Bush regime, promptly wrapping up his remarks. "We have the ability to straighten it out. It's gonna take a little bit of time, so I ask you to stay with us. Stay with us."

Wild Thing's comment.........

I know Biden is a gaffe machine, but THIS sounds almost like sabotage of the Obama campaign! Keep it coming Joe!!

If the FBI truly is doing a full background on Obama, can you imagine the size of the file and what’s in it? It’s got to scare the living daylights out of the agents doing it.

LOL Biden doing an ad for McCain. The Hamas endorses Obama, the PLO endorses Obama. Now let's see. If you don't want a crisis, elect John McCain, because everybody knows that none of these foreign goverments want to test their luck (they'd be suicidal) by attacking us with McCain at the helm.

Joe Biden, you just torpedoed your candidate!!!

Biden acknowledged that Obama’s lack of foreign-policy experience will provoke America’s enemies into creating an international crisis. Biden apparently thinks this is just terrific. hahaa And it's not just that it's the fact that Barack Hussein Obama hates America and hates capitalism, and sympathizes with our enemies, and wants to see America taken down a peg because it is still predominantly white and capitalistic.

Sen. Joe Biden, D-Del., on Sunday guaranteed that if elected, Sen. Barack Obama., D-Ill., will be tested by an international crisis within his first six months in power and he will need supporters to stand by him as he makes tough, and possibly unpopular, decisions.

“Mark my words,” the Democratic vice presidential nominee warned at the second of his two Seattle fundraisers Sunday. “It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy.

Watch, we’re gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy.”

Remember I said it standing here if you don’t remember anything else I said. Watch, we’re gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy.”

Not a genuine crisis, but a generated one ... when it occurs, we'd better have the demands of what did 0bama know and when did he know it -- if this isn't telegraphing, I don't know what is.

Obama’s friends, the sleeper cells, are ready and waiting to do their part.

And another thought, is this Biden's idea of preparing everyone for Martial law or something?

Janine Turner Supports McCain / Palin and TEAM Sarah

On FOX, Sun, 19 Oct 2008 Actress Janine Turner applauds Sarah Palin's pioneer spirit...CLICK TO SEE VIDEO.

The video is excellent.

Transcript is digital so there are just a couple of missing words.:

We're gonna go here you don't never that popular show northern exposure where you fan of the show up there in Alaska to to. -- amazing that Alaska is back in the press you'd be shocked by that but now actress Janine Turner who was all macho is getting involved with politics at a different level.

And supporting Governor Sarah Palin she's joining us live this morning to talk about that good morning team.

"It's very already. Yet what it was very funny securities. Well let's go beyond just the comedy for a minute let's talk some politics here you obviously throwing his support behind governor -- what is it about her what is it about the politics of personality that has drawn you to."

Janine Turner:

"Well I think that she is a political star and I am I am very excited about her and if she's intelligent. She -- leader she's made executive decisions she's our first scene now Republican vice presidential nominee and I'm just thrilled about it I'm better recently in Dallas as well.

Her Hero Sarah!

At the McCain/Palin rally in Virginia Beach..........Sarah Palin Autographs my Prosthetic Leg

Her hero Sarah: compassion in action

By Rebekah Curtis


I’m a 22-year-old amputee and have had a lot of health and mobility problems over the past couple of years. I just got a new leg and am finally getting back on my feet. (Pun intended!) Even a few weeks ago, standing for fairly short periods of time was impossible without a lot of pain. At the McCain/Palin rally in Virginia Beach Oct.13, my family stood for around eight hours straight, and I wasn’t any more sore than anyone else. But that wasn’t what made the day one of the happiest of my life.

We arrived at four in the morning and were the first in line, out of an estimated 25,000. Since we were in front, we were able to rush like mad when they opened up the area around the stage, so we were only about six or eight feet from it. I had a special request for Governor Palin, if I was lucky enough to meet her.
Courtesy photo Gov. Sarah Palin signing a prosthetic leg belonging to Rebekah Curtis of Chesapeake, Va.

After the speeches, when Sarah walked down the stairs, my mom’s was the first hand she shook. People were already crowding in and shoving things at her to sign, and she started to move away. I was so disappointed, but Mom grabbed her hand and asked her if she would grant my request — to sign my leg. She kept moving, and Mom said, “Sarah!” one last time, and this time asked her to sign my artificial leg. Ha.

Sarah’s face lit up and she said, “Oh, yeah, okay!” She told us she’d never been asked to do that yet. There were several Secret Service men (and one incredibly dour woman) on every side, scowling the way they do, so I jokingly asked her if her guys would pounce on me if I took my leg off and tried to hand it to her, and she threw her head back and laughed. I gave it to her, and she asked how I lost my leg. I told her it was due to a congenital defect, and she said, “Bless your heart.” She pronounced my leg “beautiful,” and asked me where she should sign.

(By the way, there is also a video on Youtube of Gov. Palin signing my leg. It’s at , or search for “Governor Palin Autographs My Prosthetic Leg.” We were in such close quarters that the visual is all over the place at times, but you can see most of what’s going on and hear everything.)

I thought she’d hurriedly autograph one ankle, but she signed “Sarah” on one side, then turned it around and signed “Palin” on the other. It was all I could do to keep from turning into a weepy mess — and I would have if I’d looked to either side and realized Mom and one of my sisters were crying.

She said, “I am so honored that you would let me do that!” then gave me a hug and asked my name. I stepped back into my leg, and she leaned over the barricade to check it out, and said I looked beautiful and was inspiring.

I just barely managed, “So are you!” before I started crying, and she said, “Thank you!” and then hugged Mom, too.

When I initially shared the story with some friends who are politically to the left of myself, I said I couldn’t explain why I see a totally different person than a lot of them see when they look at Governor Palin, and I didn’t particularly care to try as I didn’t want to argue. What I see is someone who radiates love and compassion, someone who reminds me of my mother and other wonderful women in my life, someone who makes me want to do great things.

What I wish I’d been able to tell her is that the major reason I consider her a hero is the way she stands in stark contrast to the false compassion of our day, in which otherwise good people believe love means trying to eliminate suffering by doling out death like it’s the ultimate gift.

Modern humanitarians think, “I wouldn’t want to live like that,” and they never have a chance to see that (as Gov. Palin said in her RNC speech) with a special challenge comes a special joy. Even when we can’t see those special joys right away, our faith lets us trust we will see suffering turned right-side-out someday.

I would still be here if my parents had known about my leg before I was born, because my mother is a lot like Sarah Palin, and they both have a heart like Our Lady, Mary: wise and brave; one that “ponders all these things,” when “all these things” includes the promise “a sword shall pierce your own heart, too.”

But thousands of babies with my condition and others — cleft palate, club foot, Down syndrome, etc. — never get the chance to live.

In response to people who said it would have been better if a certain disabled little girl had never been born, the great Southern author Flannery O’Conner wrote, “In the absence of faith, we govern by tenderness. And tenderness leads to the gas chamber.”

If Flannery had lived to see Roe vs. Wade and its effects, I think she would have added “abortion clinic.”

Flannery knew about pain, suffering, and disability — she died of lupus when she was only 39 years old. She lived her adult life dying, and knowing it, and you know how she wrote about it? “I have never been anywhere but sick. In a sense sickness is a place ... and it’s always a place where nobody can follow. Sickness before death is a very appropriate thing and I think those who don’t have it miss one of God’s mercies.”

Sickness and disability aren’t one and the same, but they share that quality of being a place apart — and a mercy, if only we let them.

Wild Thing's comment.......

Sarah Palin is the real thing. God bless Rebekah for writing about this experience. There is a lot of this going on and the McCain campaign does not trumpet it about...but the people involved do, and I am grateful they do.

Obama A Thug ~ "I want you to argue with them and get in their face" Ah But There Is More....

Today is the anniversary of the day Ayers friends killed a security guard and 2 police officers. - October 20, 1981

Obama's Foul Weather Friends


Second Source

Third Source:

Ayer’s wife, Weather Underground leader Bernadine Dohrn, she’s even more sinister than Ayers, and her sister, Jennifer Dohrn is shown verifying and supporting Dohrns voice telling Americans they will be attacked in the documentary.

Bernadine Dohrn’s sister, Jennifer Dohrn was married to the lawyer for the Black Panthers and was a professor at Columbia at the same time that Obama was at Columbia.

1981 Obama transfers from Occidental to Columbia for his junior year and moves to NYC. He lives at 339 E. 94th St with roommate Sohale Siddiqi.

Bernadine Dohrn made numerous contacts with Fidel Castro’s Cuban Mission at the UN in 1968 and 1969, during which time she arranged for SDS groups to visit Havana.

After returning from Cuba, Dohrn and others met with North Vietnamese and Viet Cong representatives in Budapest, Hungary, to discuss antiwar strategy on US campuses. Speaking a few days later at an assembly of revolutionary student movements at Columbia University, Dohrn reported that the Vietnamese communists she met in Budapest were working with US GIs in Saigon, attempting to obtain military information.

Obama has been less than forthcoming with information that might shed light on these close associations in his past. Until quite recently, researchers have been blocked from accessing the document archives of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, now held at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

This delay has provided ample time to review and quite possibly sanitize the contents. When Klonsky was identified online earlier this year, all his posts at Obama's website were instantly deleted. Documentation concerning many aspects of Obama's life remains unavailable, including papers from his time in college and law school, medical records, law firm clients, and files as an Illinois State Senator.

Obama's campaign attorney has tried to suppress a TV ad that calls attention to his connection with Ayers, threatening the broadcast licenses of TV station managers and calling for the Justice Department to prosecute those who produced and financed the ad.

Throughout his life, Barack Obama has selected his mentors from the ranks of those who despise the United States. This common thread connects Hawaiian Communist Party organizer Frank Marshall Davis, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright ("God bless America? No, no... God DAMN America!") and the former Weatherman leaders, Ayers and Dohrn.

In 1981, former Weather Underground members along with a few former Black Panthers are arrested in association with the robbery of a Brinks armored truck 20 miles north of Manhattan. A guard is killed and the driver is wounded. $1.6 million is recovered.

One of the Weather Underground members arrested for the Brinks crime is Kathy Boudin, along with her boyfriend David Gilbert. Boudin is sentenced to 20 years-to-life. Boudin and Gilbert leave behind a 14-month-old son, Chesa Boudin, who ends up being raised by Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn while his parents live in prison.

One of the former Black Panthers arrested in connection with the Brinks robbery is Nathaniel Burns, a member of the Black Liberation Army. Burns is also known as Sekou Odinga. Burns/Odinga is sentenced to 25 years-to-life for attempted murder of a police officer. (ODINGA, sound familiar?...also the last name of Obama's half brother)Obama’s Muslim-radical relative, Odinga

The perps of the Brinks robbery rented cars using information obtained from the records of Broadway Baby day care. Manager of Broadway Baby at the time? Bernardine Dohrn!! ( source)

Obama and Ayers later end up collaborating on several controversial projects in Chicago.

They work together to grant funds to Rashid Khalidi, Trinity United Church of Christ, and ACORN, among other “worthy” recipients.

Ayers and Dohrn host a soirée at their home to launch young Barack’s political career. (But we’re now to believe that Barack did not know that Ayers and Dohrn created and starred in the Weather Underground, for which they were tried as criminals.) However it was ruled that the Government’s case was based on illegal wiretaps. Stupid rules!!! So that is why many did not go to jail at all and the ones that did like Dohrn only went for a short time.

“The ties between Dohrn and Barack and Michelle Obama may run deep. From 1984-1988, Dohrn worked at Sidley & Austin, a law firm, which is also where Obama and his wife Michelle worked and met. “For three years after law school, Michelle worked as an associate in the area of marketing and intellectual property at Chicago law firm Sidley and Austin, where she met Barack Obama,” the official Obama campaign website reports. But it says nothing about meeting or knowing Dohrn.”

Valerie Jarrett, was Michele Obama’s boss. She is now Obama’s chief advisor and he does not make any major decisions without talking to her first. Where was Jarrett born? Ready for this? Shiraz, Iran!

Valerie Bowman Jarrett (born 1956) is a Chicago lawyer, businesswoman, and civic leader. She is a senior advisor to 2008 Democratic U.S. Presidential candidate Barack Obama. Valerie Bowman was born on November 14, 1956 in Shiraz, Iran,

Amazing Ayers Audio unearthed from the very same week Obama worked directly with Ayers!
Extremist Ayers and Obama match almost word for word on major issues.

Ayers says everyone around him knows his views, he doesn't hide them!


Compare this:

Weather Underground Mark Rudd, “Gut Check - challenge each other to be more violent”

And Obama:

In Elko, Obama tried to anticipate his critics and called on the crowd of about 1,500 to sharpen their elbows, too.

"I'm skinny but I'm tough," he says.

"I need you to go out and talk to your friends and talk to your neighbors. I want you to talk to them whether they are independent or whether they are Republican. I want you to argue with them and get in their face," he said.

"And if they tell you that, 'Well, we're not sure where he stands on guns.' I want you to say, 'He believes in the Second Amendment.' If they tell you, 'Well, he's going to raise your taxes,' you say, 'No, he's not, he's going lower them.' You are my ambassadors. You guys are the ones who can make the case."

Gadhafi "Says Arab world campaign contributions "may enable him Obama to win U.S. presidency"

Mideast leader: Obama a Muslim who studied in Islamic schools

Says Arab world campaign contributions 'may enable him to win U.S. presidency'


Sen. Barack Obama is a Muslim of Kenyan origins who studied in Islamic schools and whose campaign may have been financed by people in the Islamic and African worlds, Libyan leader Muammar Gadhafi said during a recent televised national rally.

"There are elections in America now. Along came a black citizen of Kenyan African origins, a Muslim, who had studied in an Islamic school in Indonesia. His name is Obama," said Gadhafi in little-noticed remarks he made at a rally marking the anniversary of the 1986 U.S. air raid on his country.

All the people in the Arab and Islamic world and in Africa applauded this man," continued Gadhafi. "They welcomed him and prayed for him and for his success, and they may have even been involved in legitimate contribution campaigns to enable him to win the American presidency.

"We are hoping that this black man will take pride in his African and Islamic identity, and in his faith, and that [he will know] that he has rights in America, and that he will change America from evil to good, and that America will establish relations that will serve it well with other peoples, especially the Arabs," Gadhafi said.

Gadhafi went on to lament statements Obama made at a June 4 address to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee in which the presidential candidate stated if he is elected president, "Jerusalem would remain the capital of Israel and it must remain undivided."

But it seems Gadhafi was not aware that the next day, during a CNN appearance, Obama explained he meant Jerusalem shouldn't be physically divided with a partition and was not referring to the city remaining in exclusively Jewish hands.

Stated Gadhafi: "But we were taken by surprise when our African Kenyan brother [Obama], who is an American national, made statements (about Jerusalem) that shocked all his supporters in the Arab world, in Africa, and in the Islamic world.

"We hope that this is merely an elections 'clearance sale,' as they say in Egypt - in other words, merely an elections lie. As you know, this is the farce of elections - a person lies and lies to people, just so that they will vote for him, and afterwards, when they say to him, 'You promised this and that,' he says: 'No, this was just elections propaganda.' This is the farce of democracy for you. He says: 'This was propaganda, and you thought I was being serious. I was fooling you to get your votes.'

"Allah willing, it will turn out that this was merely elections propaganda. Obama said he would turn Jerusalem into the eternal capital of the Israelis. This indicates that our brother Obama is ignorant of international politics, and is not familiar with the Middle East conflict," Gadhafi said.

Gadhafi went on to express his hope if elected Obama will implement a "one state solution" to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, meaning Israel would be flooded with millions of Palestinian Arabs who would terminate the country's Jewish nationality.

He said he was worried Obama may have a "black inferiority complex" whereby he may enact "white men" policies to prove he is no different from "white" America.

"The thing we fear most is that the black man suffers from an inferiority complex. This is dangerous. If our brother Obama feels that because he is black he doesn't have the right to rule America, this would be a disaster, because such a feeling would make him act whiter than the white, and go to an extreme in his persecution and degradation of the blacks.

"We say to him: Brother, the whites and blacks in America are equal. They are all immigrants. America belongs neither to the whites nor to the blacks. America belongs to its original inhabitants, the Indians. Both the whites and the blacks immigrated to America, and so they are equal, and Obama has the right to hold his head high, and say: 'I am a partner in America. This is my land as much as it is yours. If it is not my land, it is not yours either. It is the land of the Indians. You are immigrants, and so are we.'"

Obama was 'quite religious in Islam'

Obama repeatedly has denied he is a Muslim. His campaign site states: "Senator Obama has never been a Muslim, was not raised as a Muslim, and is a committed Christian."

But as WND has reported, public records in Indonesia listed Obama as a Muslim during his early years, and a number of childhood friends claimed to the media Obama was once a mosque-attending Muslim.

Obama's campaign several times has wavered in response to reporters queries regarding the senator's childhood faith.

Commenting on a recent Los Angeles Times report quoting a childhood friend stating Obama prayed in a mosque "something the presidential candidate said he never did," Obama's campaign released a statement explaining the senator "has never been a practicing Muslim."

In a free-ranging interview with the New York Times, Obama described the Muslim call to prayer as "one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset."

The Times' Nicholos Kristof wrote Obama recited, "with a first-class [Arabic] accent," the opening lines of the Muslim call to prayer.

The first few lines of the call to prayer state:

Allah is Supreme!
Allah is Supreme!
Allah is Supreme! Allah is Supreme!
I witness that there is no god but Allah
I witness that there is no god but Allah
I witness that Muhammad is his prophet ...

For the rest of the article continue here..........WND

Wild Thing's comment............

I have posted about Gadhafi calling him a Muslim before, but this one adds in about the money coming in to Obama for hsi campaign from ARABS!

Obama campaign refused to release specifics of $100 million plus received in "small amounts" from foreign contributors.

And then there is all of this going on with Obama as well.

Several reports now of CREDIT CARD FRAUD in connection with Obama Donations, blatant, outright ILLEGAL OVERSEAS DONATIONS, etc,etc.

Obama is running the most CORRUPT Campaign ever run in AMERICAN HISTORY, and our media is willfully ignoring it.

....Thank you Mark for sending thia to me.

Racist Obama Says He Wants An "African-American Senate Successor Appointed"

Obama Said To Want African-American Senate Successor Appointed

Chicago Sun-Times

Sneed hears Barack Obama wants an African American to fill his U.S. Senate seat if he wins the presidency.

U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. wants the spot.

That places Gov. Blagojevich, who is charged with selecting Obama's replacement, in a tricky place.

• To wit: Sneed hears Gov. Blago, who dismisses reports of a federal probe, wants to run for office again -- and believes replacing Barack with an African American is a smart political move. But he is being urged to select state Sen. Donne Trotter, a close friend of Obama mentor/Senate President Emil Jones, to fill the spot.

• Another dilemma: Sneed is also told U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin, who is this/close to Obama and was a major Obama supporter from the get-go, is pitching to have state veteran affairs chief Tammy Duckworth fill Obama's spot, and had the ear of Gov. Blago until recently. Blago is also a big Duckworth fan.

Colin Powell Endorses Obama (Racism and Terrorist Ayers)

First let's take a look back and see what ole Powell said about Obama:

September 15, 2008


"Colin Powell, the first African-American Secretary of State, said this afternoon that electing an African-American US president would be “electrifying” for the world, but he said he still remains undecided between McCain and Obama."

And now for today, October 19th, 2008

Colin Powell endorses Obama


Former Secretary of State Colin Powell announced Sunday that he will be voting for Sen. Barack Obama, citing the Democrat's "ability to inspire" and the "inclusive nature of his campaign." Former Secretary of State Colin Powell says he is voting for Barack Obama.

Powell, a retired U.S. general and a Republican, was once seen as a possible presidential candidate himself.

Powell said he questioned Sen. John McCain's judgment in picking Gov. Sarah Palin as his running mate because he doesn't think she is ready to be president.

He also said he was disappointed with some of McCain's campaign tactics, such as bringing up Obama's ties to former 1960s radical Bill Ayers.

"I think that's inappropriate. I understand what politics is about -- I know how you can go after one another, and that's good. But I think this goes too far, and I think it has made the McCain campaign look a little narrow. It's not what the American people are looking for," he said.

Powell said he has some concerns about the direction of the Republican Party, adding that it has "moved more to the right than I would like to see it."

Obama called Powell earlier Sunday and thanked him for his endorsement, communications director Robert Gibbs said.

In their 10-minute conversation, Obama said he looked forward to taking advantage of Powell's advice in the next two weeks and hopefully over the next four years, Gibbs said.

Followers of HO-bama


Wild Thing's comment......

I haven’t trusted Colin Powell for a long time , in fact since Bush was running against Gore and Powell made the announcement he would he thrilled to be in either of their cabinets, so this isn’t really a surprise! BUT what a jerk! No loyalty whatsoever! He would be NOTHING if it hadn’t been for Republicans! What a POS!

And I remember when Bush won that election, and Bush put Powell in his cabinet, Powell made a statement in his press conference all about how he was for affirmative action. That made it pretty clear he was more a democrat then anything else.

Powell has also described the Iraq war a failure, declared in front of an Arab audience that the US is losing the war and called the run-up of the war based on lies. He is an abysmal failure and traitor of the level of Wesley Clark. Puke.

"Powell said he questioned Sen. John McCain’s judgment in picking Gov. Sarah Palin as his running mate because he doesn’t think she is ready to be president.”

What in the world is he on. Sarah Palin doesn't have enough experience, but Obama does...?

And by saying electing a black president would be “electrifying” he’s told everyone race is more important to him than the state of the country.

A man who fought Communists in Vietnam is now supporting and endorsing a Communist. Amazing.

Colin Powell the prince of unearned “gravitas.”

John McCain is a war hero who endured hell in order to serve the American people. He did some things I never can forgive him for but compared to Obama, McCain/Palin get my vote.

Obama, on the other hand, is a self serving politician who has never sacrificed for anyone other than himself. He has a radical background, and is associated with people who hate our great country. For Powell to be upset with McCain because he questioned Obama’s associations is truly perplexing. How can we NOT question Obama’s association with Ayers, Wright, and all of the rest of his extremist friends? If Obama were applying for a low level government job, he would need character witnesses. Why should we ask any less of a man who wants to be CIC?

And, as far as Palin “not being experienced”. Well, she has more experience than Obama does. What Powell really means is that Sarah is too pro-life and too conservative for him to like her.

GRRRRRRRRRRRRRR the more I think of him saying bringing up Ayers is "inappropriate". The angrier I get.

Barack Hussein Obama Mocks Joe the Plumber

Fred Thompson on his latest visit to Florida Saturday October 18th, 2008

"A Barack Obama presidency would “change the face of this country” with higher taxes and liberal judicial picks. “There will be no stop-gap. Any amount of spending they want, any amount of taxes they want to pass,” he said. “Do you really think if they have the ability and power when they go to Washington they’re going to only raise taxes on 5 percent of the American people?”

And from John McCain:

"The response from Senator Obama and his campaign yesterday was to attack Joe. People are digging through his personal life and he has TV crews camped out in front of his house. He didn't ask for Senator Obama to come to his house. He wasn't recruited or prompted by our campaign. He just asked a question. And Americans ought to be able to ask Senator Obama tough questions without being smeared and targeted with political attacks."

Wild Thing's comment........

Any American who gets within close proximity to Obama should ask a tough question. How many ordinary Americans can Obama’s Goon Squad smear and still smell like roses to the majority of voters?

Barack Hussein Obama = Socialist Marxist Have Your Pick

James Pethokoukis

October 16, 2008

U.S. News and World Report

You're kidding me. Barack Obama actually told that Joe the Plumber guy that he wants to "spread the wealth around." What, did Obama just get done reading the Wikipedia entry on Huey "Share the Wealth" Long or something? Was he somehow channeling that left-wing populist from the Depression? Talk about playing into the most extreme stereotype of your party, that it is infested with socialists.

A while back I chatted with a University of Chicago professor who was a frequent lunch companion of Obama's. This professor said that Obama was as close to a full-out Marxist as anyone who has ever run for president of the United States.

Now, I tend to quickly dismiss that kind of talk as way over the top. My working assumption is that Obama is firmly within the mainstream of Democratic politics. But if he is as free with that sort of redistributive philosophy in private as he was on the campaign trail this week, I have no doubt that U of C professor really does figure him as a radical. And after last night's debate, a few more Americans might think that way, too. McCain's best line: "Now, of all times in America, we need to cut people's taxes. We need to encourage business, create jobs, not spread the wealth around."

And by the way, I just noticed that the IBD/TIPP poll, the most accurate in 2004, has McCain down by just 3 points. If the contest is perceived by the voters as a contest between a wealth redistributor and a wealth creator, then it could be a long night come Nov. 4.

And this article:

Investors' Real Fear: A Socialist Tsunami


The Crash: "Why has the market dropped so much?" everyone asks. What is it about the specter of our first socialist president and the end of capitalism as we know it that they don't understand?

The freeze-up of the financial system — and government's seeming inability to thaw it out — are a main concern, no doubt. But more people are also starting to look across the valley, as they say, at what's in store once this crisis passes.

And right now it looks like the U.S., which built the mightiest, most prosperous economy the world has ever known, is about to turn its back on the free-enterprise system that made it all possible.

It isn't only that the most anti-capitalist politician ever nominated by a major party is favored to take the White House. It's that he'll also have a filibuster-proof Congress led by politicians who are almost as liberal.

Throw in a media establishment dedicated to the implementation of a liberal agenda, and the smothering of dissent wherever it arises, and it's no wonder panic has set in.

What is that agenda? It starts with a tax system right out of Marx: A massive redistribution of income — from each according to his ability, to each according to his need — all in the name of "neighborliness," "patriotism," "fairness" and "justice."

It continues with a call for a new world order that turns its back on free trade, has no problem with government controlling the means of production, imposes global taxes to support continents where our interests are negligible, signs on to climate treaties that will sap billions more in U.S. productivity and wealth, and institutes an authoritarian health care system that will strip Americans' freedoms and run up costs.

All the while, it ensures that nothing — absolutely nothing — will be done to secure a sufficient, terror-proof supply of our economic lifeblood — oil — a resource we'll need much more of in the years ahead.

The businesses that create jobs and generate wealth are already discounting the future based on what they know about Obama's plans to raise income, capital gains, dividend and payroll taxes, and his various other economy-crippling policies. Which helps explain why world stock markets have been so topsy-turvy.

But don't take our word for it. One hundred economists, five Nobel winners among them, have signed a letter noting just that:

"The prospect of such tax-rate increases in 2010 is already a drag on the economy," they wrote, noting that the potential of higher taxes in the next year or two is reducing hiring and investment.
It was "misguided tax hikes and protectionism, enacted when the U.S. economy was weak in the early 1930s," the economists remind us, that "greatly increased the severity of the Great Depression."

We can't afford to repeat these grave errors.

Yet much of the electorate is determined to vote for the candidate most likely to make them. If he wins, what we consider to be a crisis in today's economy will be a routine affair in tomorrow's.

Wild Thing's comment..........

This is an excellent article!!! I am glad there are people speaking out about Obama and his agenda. Now I jsut wish these same people would get on the media shows and blast away.

Minnesota Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann Speaks Out About Anti-American Obama

Michelle Bachmann Hammers Obama for "Anti-American" Associations

October 17, 2008

Video of Minnesota Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann appearing on MSNBC's "Hardball" with Chris Matthews. Matthews confronts Bachmann with McCain Campaign "robo calls" that are being placed in key states which hits Obama for his association with unrepentant terrorist William Ayers. During her response, Bachmann hammered Obama for his pattern of relationships with "anti-American" people like Jeremiah Wright and William Ayers.

Wild Thing's comment..........

Wow! She was great. She needs to keep speaking out and asking the questions the MSM won’t ask. She said every single thing needing to be said about the anti-American sentiments by Obama’s associates and she reminded about his wife finally being proud of her country. She didn’t waiver once .

I’ve just been surfing around YOUTUBE for Michele Bachmann videos. She’s GOT to be GREAT, because those commie libs REALLY hate her. They hate her more than Bush, Palin and Reagan combined!

Right after that exchange, Matthews had on Lynn Sweet, Washington D.C. bureau chief for the Chicago Sun-Times and Jonathan Martin of All three were ripping into Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann for her unAmerican charges. Sweet said she didn't know what she was talking about. Matthews even called it a return to 1950`s McCarthyism.

The left remains unhinged over anyone who says anything negative against the Messiah.

Sarah Palin Rally In Indiana 25,000 Attend

The head of the Republican party in Indiana, said that there were 25,000 at the rally in Indiana.

After watching Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin from afar for months, nearly 25,000 Hoosiers got their first glimpse of the stylish and feisty vice presidential nominee at the Verizon Wireless Music Center on a perfect fall Friday night.
And she didn't disappoint.

"Indiana, soon the choice will be yours to make, and are you ready to help carry this state to victory? Are you ready to make John McCain the next president of the United States of America? Are you ready to send us to Washington, D.C., to shake things up?" she asked.
She said the choice for Hoosiers is between a politician who puts his faith in government and a leader who puts his faith in the citizens.
"It's the choice between a politician who wants to raise taxes and redistribute your hard-earned money according to his priorities, versus a true reformer who wants to lower taxes and create jobs and get this economy going," Palin said.

It was her first visit to Indiana as GOP presidential nominee Sen. John McCain tries to hold onto a state Republicans usually can afford to take for granted.

But his challenger, Democrat Sen. Barack Obama, has been to Indiana six times since the May primary in addition to his wife and running mate stumping here as well. He has also blanketed the state with TV ads.

"My fellow Republicans, enough is enough," said Murray Clark, chairman of the Indiana Republican Party. "Yes, we have been outspent in Indiana. We have been outspent across the nation, but guess what? I don't care how much money he pours into this negative campaign, the thing that is going to win this election is people like you."

The atmosphere was more rock concert than political rally, as students from Ball State University painted "Maverick" on their bare chests and supporters bought pretzels and nachos from the concession stands.

Country music artist Aaron Tippin entertained the crowd with a few songs, including "Kiss This," which he dedicated to Obama.

The gates opened more than five hours before the program began and a line of people snaked as far as one could see, filing into the venue. All 6,000 pavilion seats were filled and thousands more perched on the lawn.

Once Palin took the stage, no one in the crowd sat down for the length of her 30-minute speech.

Palin's speech included a rebuke for Obama's ties to ACORN, a national reform-minded community organization under investigation in a dozen states including Indiana for possible voter registration fraud.

She said a front group for ACORN received money from the Obama campaign and he represented the organization as a lawyer earlier in his career.

"We have to talk about this. It is not mean-spirited and it is not negative campaigning when we talk about someone's record," Palin said. "Americans are entitled to answers before Election Day. We need a little straight talk. These associations are important and they go to the heart of someone's judgment and truthfulness.
"On Election Day you are going to be asked to choose between a candidate who will not disavow a group committing voter fraud and a leader who will not tolerate it."

Palin also invoked "Joe the plumber" from Ohio who took center stage during this week's presidential debate, when McCain used him as an example of a citizen who could be hurt by Obama's plan to raise taxes on wealthy Americans.

The man met Obama in his neighborhood last week and asked about the plan. During his response, the Democrat presidential candidate alluded to the need to spread the wealth around, to help struggling Americans.

"You've really got to hand it to Joe the Plumber. Somehow he succeeded in getting Barack Obama to finally state his true intentions," Palin said. "He wants the government to take more of your money and decide how best to redistribute it. Joe said it sounded kind of like socialism.
"I call it real bad medicine for an ailing economy."

Barack Hussein Obama Vows To 'change the world'

Farrakhan's Obama endorsement at the above 'annual Saviours' Day celebration in Chicago, Feb. 25, 2008'. Hear him call Obama "The Messiah"! And speak of "universal change":

Barack Obama has vowed that he will "change the world" even as he urged his supporters to guard against complacency.

Londonderry, New Hampshire

of Mr Obama's speech in Londonderry - punctuated by cries of "We all love you Obama", "I love you" and "We will work with you" - was devoted to the kind of quasi-religious sentiments and motivational-coach style exhortations, the kind of pride that set him up for a big fall in January.

"I want you to believe," said the candidate, clad in an open-necked shirt and barn jacket. "Not so much believe just in me but believe in yourselves. Believe in the future. Believe in the future we can build together. I'm confident together we can't fail."

There was a carnival atmosphere among the crowd of some 4,000, who almost drowned Mr Obama out as he reached his crescendo and said: "I promise you. We won't just win New Hampshire. We will win this election and, you and I together, we're going to change the country and change the world."


Statement from Communist Party USA (CPUSA):

"The Communist Party USA views the 2008 elections as a tremendous opportunity to defeat the policies of the right-wing Republicans and to move our country in a new progressive direction.
The record turnout in the Democratic Presidential primary races shows that millions of voters, including millions of new voters, are using this election to bring about real change. We wholeheartedly agree with them."

From Rules for Radicals, Alinsky outlines his strategy in organizing, writing:

"There's another reason for working inside the system. Dostoevsky said that taking a new step is what people fear most. Any revolutionary change must be preceded by a passive, affirmative, non-challenging attitude toward change among the mass of our people. They must feel so frustrated, so defeated, so lost, so futureless in the prevailing system that they are willing to let go of the past and change the future. This acceptance is the reformation essential to any revolution."[2]

[2] Saul Alinsky, The Latter Rain


Dr Ijaz Mian (at Derby’s Ahl-e-Hadith mosque): “Being a Muslim, you have to fix a target.

"There will be no House of Commons. From that White House to this Black House, we know we have to dismantle it. Muslims must grow in strength. . . then take over. If you don’t come for prayer, we will arrest you. But if you still don’t, then... you will be killed.”


Wild Thing's comment......

I would settle for B.Hussein Obama just buying the world a coke and then getting lost.

Not only is Barack Hussein Obama an anti-American antiWhite anti-Semitic socialist bigot, he is also a megalomaniac.

Marine Mom Deborah Johns Crossing America For McCain/Palin

Marine Mom Deborah Johns

Marine Mom Deborah Johns has helped give voice to many in the pro-troop movement. She has consistently taken time away from her personal life to speak out with unwavering conviction on behalf of our military men and women and their families back here on the homefront. No wonder Fox News Channel declared her to be one of their favorite military moms.

Deborah’s son, William, is an American hero who has served repeated tours of duty in Iraq. When anti-military radicals and their allies in the liberal political movement were attacking the missions of our troops, Deborah Johns was fighting back in support of our military men and women.

She has traveled across the country on five national tours, by minivan, motorhome and tour bus - traveling more than 15,000 miles by road, day-in and day-out and speaking to the news media and at pro-troop rallies.

In this clip, Deborah spoke to a local news affiliate in Columbus, Ohio about the need for Americans - including those in Congress - to support the excellent efforts of General David Petraeus.

And when the Berkeley City Council called U.S. Marines "uninvited and unwelcome intruders" Deborah Johns stepped up again, helping to lead the pushback against the Berkely City Council and in support of the Marines in particular, and our military as a whole.

Deborah Johns stood up against Democratic leaders Harry Reid & Nancy Pelosi when they tried to cut off funding for our troops. She stood up to Democrats in Congress who attempted to pass resolutions condemning the war on terror, and now she is prepared to stand up to Barack Obama's anti-military, "Blame America First" policies in his campaign for president and Commander-in-Chief.

A Message from Marine Mom Deborah Johns

Greetings from Marine Mom Deborah Johns -- I'm writing to you from the Our Country Deserves Better "Stop Obama Tour" bus as we approach Flagstaff, Arizona.
Friends, we have 17 days left in this election campaign, and national polls have once again tightened. But it's clear that right now, we're the underdogs, and we're up against a news media that is 'in the tank' for Obama, and the huge money advantage that the Obama campaign has held over the McCain campaign in TV ad spending.
We're fighting back to overcome these hurdles with a two-front strategy, and I'm imploring you to help. All of us at the Our Country Deserves Better Committee are working around-the-clock, going with little or no sleep. While we may be running on fumes in terms of physical strength and energy, we are topped-up with a full tank of passion and determination. The stakes are too high for us to fail in our efforts to elect the McCain/Palin ticket and beat Barack Obama.
When I think about how much work we must still do in the next 17 days, I sometimes feel overwhelmed. But then I stop and think about my Marine son, William, and Gov. Sarah Palin's son, Track, and all the men and women in uniform who are serving this country in Iraq, Afghanistan and around the globe.
These brave and honorable Americans are our neighbors, our friends, our co-workers, our family members. They are just like you and me, except that when called upon to serve their country they reach from within and conjure up their greatest strengths and attributes so as to accomplish their missions with duty, honor and character.
If our troops can achieve success while facing down al-Qaida in Iraq and the Taliban in Afghanistan while simultaneously taking enemy fire from leftist anti-war radicals back on the home front -- then can't we here on the home front find within ourselves the willpower, determination and energy to win this campaign that is so crucial to our nation's future?
I am asking for you to support us in one of two ways - or if you can, I certainly will accept your assistance in both ways:
1. Support our "Stop Obama Tour" by coming out to one of our rallies so we can have large crowds for the media coverage - TOUR INFO HERE.
2. Make a donation to our television ad campaign that is running in key battleground states. I've sent this email to about 150,000 people. We'll happily accept anything from $5 to $5,000. Just please help us step up our efforts to counter Barack Obama on the airwaves.
I hope to be addressing you in person at our rally stops across the nation. And you can always follow along at the blog of our radio talk show host/TV analyst leading this effort with us, Mark Williams, and his blog at the Sacramento Union - HERE.

Wild Thing's comment.........

Fantastic!!!! Gosh I love our military and military families. I know many of us have family that are serving in our military and many are deployed . Lynn has family members, Rhod his sons, Nicholas has two cousins sons serving and deployed and others we have shared about and pray for every day.

If Obama wins it will be the worst thing for both, those serving and for the families too. It will always be a shock to me that he can even run for any office and now we are facing something so horrible and evil, if he wins.

What an awesome country we have and so many that do support our military, are grateful to our Veterans and know the price that has been paid for our freedom.

....Thank you Mark for sending this to me.

Obama BS plug your toilet? Call Joe the Plumber!

RAGING PLUMBERS Wave Plungers At Obama Outside Rally

CNN reported today that a group of "plumbers" waved plungers at Obama in Roanoke, Virginia.

As Democratic nominee Barack Obama pulled into the Roanoke Civic Center on Friday, he was greeted by the usual McCain campaign supporters that show at Obama rallies. But this time, those waving McCain-Palin signs were joined by dozens of people waving standard-issue plungers. Some wore white t-shirts emblazoned with "I AM JOE THE PLUMBER" on the front.

About 6,500 showed up to see The One. The center holds 10,500.....Sarah's been getting bigger crowds then Obama.

MSM is busy looking for birth certificate, divorce, voting and medical records of Joe-the-Plumber, unlike for Obama-the-CryptoKenyanIslamicSocialist. Notice how the media puts more effort into doing a number on Sarah Palin and Joe the plumber then they did on looking into and teling the truth about OHHHHH BOMB AH and Ayers!!!! OH and Michelle HO-bama too! Can't leave her out she might order more treats brought in from Iran. haha


Wild Thing's comment.........

I wonder if we could drive Michelle and Barack Hussein Obama over the edge and send them plungers, ACORNS , and lipsticks. hahahaha

It would be safer for America if Michelle and Barack were in straight jackets instead of in our White House.

heh heh

"About 6,500 showed up to see The One. The center holds 10,500"

Elon, North Carolina Six thousand tickets were grabbed up in three hours for Sarah Palin's speech here at the baseball field of Elon University. An even larger crowd--9,000 inside, 3,000 outside--showed up across the state in Greenville a few days earlier. But impressive attendance isn't the half of it. What's extraordinary is the effect Palin has on crowds. "When she hits the stage audiences erupt and they don't calm down," says Republican senator Richard Burr of North Carolina, who appeared with Palin here and in Greenville. "I've been with Bush, Clinton, 41--and I've never seen anything like this."

Her speech--a standard stump speech extolling John McCain and zinging Barack Obama--hardly matters. People not only want to see her, Burr says, "they want to touch her. Their perception is she's one of them. It has nothing to do with ideology. It's not about Christian conservatives. It goes far beyond all that."

Gettysburg, PA. A Gift of Hallowed Ground

Battle of Gettysburg, 1883; at Gettysburg National Military Park, Pennsylvania

A gift on hallowed ground

Jewish World Review


In 1863, 11 major roads converged on this town. Which is why history did, too.

The founding of the American nation was the hinge of world history: Popular sovereignty would have its day. The collision of armies here was the hinge of American history: The nation would long endure. Which is why 200 or so generous private citizens recently gathered here for a quiet celebration of their gift to the nation — a sparkling new Museum and Visitor Center that instructs and inspires.

In 1997, Bob Kinsley, a contractor in York, Pa., decided that something should be done about the decrepit facilities for explaining the battle and displaying its artifacts. His determination survived more than 50 public meetings and three congressional hearings, and two years of resistance from rival bidders, some Gettysburg merchants and people who think the private sector takes up space that the public sector should fill.

He started the Gettysburg Foundation and hired Bob Wilburn, who had administered Colonial Williamsburg. Wilburn raised the $103 million that built the new center, which includes a theater for the scene-setting film narrated by Morgan Freeman, and the Cyclorama, the circular painting that depicts Pickett's Charge on the battle's third and final day. Americans today are so constantly pummeled by a sensory blitzkrieg — the sights and sounds of graphic journalism and entertainment — they can hardly fathom how the Cyclorama dazzled viewers when displayed in 1884. Magnificently restored and presented, it is still stunning.

The Gettysburg Foundation's work includes recovering battle sites from urban encroachments.

It recently bought the 80-acre Spangler farm. The house, which was behind Union lines, was used as a hospital for both sides. Gen. Lewis Armistead of Virginia died there. He received his mortal wounds during Pickett's Charge, leading the deepest penetration of Union lines on Cemetery Ridge at the spot now known as "the high-water mark of the Confederacy."

Recently, a Gold Star mother visited Gettysburg, after driving by it often en route to visit the Arlington grave of her son, who was killed in Iraq. She was especially moved by these words from a Gettysburg newspaper published four days after the battle:

"Every name . . . is a lightning stroke to some heart, and breaks like thunder over some home, and falls a long black shadow upon some hearthstone."

Gettysburg still stirs, but not as it used to, or should.

In "Intruder in the Dust," William Faulkner wrote:

"For every Southern boy fourteen years old, not once but whenever he wants it, there is the instant when it's still not yet two o'clock on that July afternoon in 1863, the brigades are in position behind the rail fence, the guns are laid and ready in the woods and the furled flags are already loosened to break out and Pickett himself with his long oiled ringlets. . . ."

Faulkner's sentence continued; you have just read less than half of it. To continue in his style:

Ours would be a better nation if boys and girls of all regions, and particularly the many high school and even college graduates who cannot place the Civil War in the correct half-century, could be moved, as large numbers of Americans used to be, by the names of Gettysburg battlefield sites, such as Devil's Den, the Peach Orchard, the Wheatfield, Culp's Hill and Little Round Top, instead of being like the visitor here who said it is amazing that so many great battles, such as Antietam and Chickamauga and Shiloh, occurred on Park Service land; and another visitor who doubted that the fighting here really was fierce because there are no bullet marks on the monuments.

Ten years ago, this column asserted that disrespect for the national patrimony of Civil War battlefields should be a hanging offense, and said:

"Given that the vast majority of Americans have never heard a shot fired in anger, the imaginative presentation of military history in a new facility here is vital, lest rising generations have no sense of the sacrifices of which they are beneficiaries."

Today, at an embarrassing moment of multiplying public futilities, private efforts, in collaboration with the National Park Service, have done something resoundingly right that will help a normally amnesiac nation to long remember.

Wild Thing's comment........

As I was growing up, my Father took us on a vacation every summer. He wanted us to see America and it is something that will be with me always.

He would tell about the history of places as we went to them. When there were tours we would take those as well. Williamsburg,Arlington, the Unknown Soldier, Mount Vernon, battlefields, The Capitol, the many monuments in D.C. , the House of Representatives and the Congress, The White House, and every place across our land that had historical values to the history of our country, and even the UN had a tour we that we took. His pride in our country was contagious and his gratitude for our troops, and our Veterans of all our wars was a passion. The UN tour showed me about translators and how the massive rooms were set up to accommodate each country involved. I remember my Father telling me how wrong it was to have the UN and how it started and was something against our country and one day we would regret it even more then we did back then.

He took us to Boston, one of my favorites perhaps because it was his as well, to Boston College one of the schools he had graduated from and showed me a room with a map in it. A map so massive that one had to walk around it, like the size of a small football field. How it had cities marked with tiny lights that would first be hit in an attack on our country. Places with no names to them that were military places permitted to be known only in a general way of their location. I remember that map as though I am there right now.

The education I will always be so grateful for and when I read articles like this one memories flood my brain and heart as well.

My Father impressed on me how important our countries history was and not just to know our past but to with our future too that might help in knowing the why of things and how dangerous some things can be if allowed to happen.

I am always glad when our historical places are cared for and appreciated. It is sad to me how few care to teach their children, they rely on a teacher at school and simply that is a waste of a dream because our schools do not teach much anymore. Instead they teach sex to kindergarten age kids and condom use to gradeschool children. How to have same sex dress day and teachers taking a class to see them marry a same sex lover as a school field trip., appreciate Muslim day and their Islam and Quran. All these things ripping about our country, weakening it, raping the very history that made us great. Destroying the memories of our founding fathers and so many things. Then we ask why do people fall for an Obama so easily, how can they not, they are brain dead. They know more about rappers then Paul Revere. The go by democrats telling them how weak they are, what losers they are and how the government will ride in and save the day. They grow up believing that Republicans invented and kept alive slavery when it is the Republicans that fought for their freedom.

Instead of bus loads of people being hauled off to voting places, buses should be taken loaded with these people to places of history and teach them the truth. Few know even how our government works , few know how much and how little the Presidents power encompasses. How Congress works and what it is meant to be about, how many Senators there are they don't even know. How there is meaning in every action done at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, what is the Pentagon and why is it built the way it is and what does it do.

Sorry for going on like this, but like I said my brain is flooding with memories and how far we have moved away from so many things as a country and pride in all these things.

The Obama's At The Waldorf-Astoria

Michelle's Afternoon at the Waldorf

The Obamas at the Waldorf Hysteria hotel while Barack Hussein had to be there to make his comedic attempt for the Alfred E. Smith dinner.

This is the New York Post Page Six report:

"Though he's battling GOP accusations that he's an Ivy League elitist, Barack Obama has a lifestyle of the rich and famous, like TV show host Robin Leach, who always signed off, 'Champagne wishes and caviar dreams!' While he was at a meeting at the Waldorf-Astoria at 4 p.m. Wednesday, Michelle Obama called room service and ordered lobster hors d'oeuvres, two whole steamed lobsters, Iranian caviar and champagne."

Wild Thing's comment.........

I could care less what a person eats, well unless it is something disgusting. haha
But what is this with the " Iranian caviar"????


Not sure which Iranian one she asked for...... LINK

Is it some kind of cavier blessed by Muslims? LOL

Sarah Palin to Appear on SNL

Live from New York, it's Sarah Palin


Saturday Night Live won’t need Tina Fey this weekend to parody Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin—the Alaska governor will do it herself.

A spokeswoman for the McCain campaign told the Associated Press today that Palin will appear on the comedy sketch show this weekend, which will be hosted by actor Josh Brolin, who plays President Bush in Oliver Stone’s latest film “W.”

Palin joins the roster of presidential candidates who have appeared on SNL this election season. Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and John McCain have all appeared on the show.

A John McCain campaign spokeswoman, Jill Hazelbaker, on Friday confirmed Palin's appearance but offered no details about what the Alaska governor will say or do.

Wild Thing's comment.......

I just got this a few minutes ago, it says it was announced one hour ago. I don't care for SNL anymore, it used ot be funny years and years ago. But I will watch it this time to see Sarah.

McCain Wins and Obama Bombs Out At The Alfred E. Smith Memorial Dinner

Senators John McCain and Barack Obama spoke at the Alfred E. Smith Memorial Dinner at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City. The annual charity event was the last scheduled appearance of the presidential candidates on the same stage before the November election and offered an opportunity for each candidate to make humorous remarks about themselves, the other candidate, and the election campaign.

McCain’s remarks were flat out hilarious, totally stole the show, he got a standing ovation, and "That One" ( Obama) was not so funny and received meager applause.

John McCain has quite the comedic timing!!! He COMPLETELY rocked the house, and managed to make some stinging points at the same time.

My bet is that someone like Dennis Miller wrote his speech, but whoever wrote it, they should win a comedic political speech award, if there is one. I especially enjoyed him setting up Obama at the end…very creative! And, hilarious!

Obama at Al Smith Dinner -Part 1

Obama at Al Smith Dinner -Part 2- this video Obama brings up Rudy and it does not go over well, you will hear a small, very small polite applause but more like a feeling of being uncomfortable filling the room

Quotes from Barack at last night’s dinner:

“Contrary to the rumors, I was not born in a manger,” Obama said.

“But to name my greatest strength I guess it would be my humility. Greatest weakness, it’s possible that I’m a little too awesome.”

These are actual quotes from the M(ass)iah himself as seen on the Obama video's.

Joe the Plumber, is actually Joe America's Everyman

Toledo Blade

He won’t say who he will vote for on Nov. 4, but did say he likes Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin.

He said he was born in the Toledo area, lived until he was 13 in the Florida Panhandle area, went to Springfield High School, and then entered the U.S. Air Force. He was stationed at an Air Force base in Alaska from 1992 until 1995. He said he was honorably discharged.

Joe Wurzelbacher held a news conference this morning at his Holland, Ohio home. Holland is about 8 miles from Toledo.

An advocacy group Family Security Matters secured an interview with Mr. Wurzelbacher

At a recent campaign appearance in Ohio, Sen. Obama was approached by plumber Joe Wurzelbacher, who has concerns about Obama’s proposed tax policies.’s Pam Meister had a candid conversation with him about his experience.

PAM MEISTER: You recently met Sen. Obama on the campaign trail in Ohio, and you asked him a question about his tax policies. What exactly was your question for him?

JOE WURZELBACHER: Initially, I started off asking him if he believed in the American Dream and he said yes, he does – and then I proceeded to ask him then why he’s penalizing me for trying to fulfill it. He asked, “what do you mean,” and I explained to him that I’m planning on purchasing this company – it’s not something I’m gonna purchase outright, it’s something I’m going to have to make payments on for years – but essentially I’m going to buy this company, and the profits generated by that could possibly put me in that tax bracket he’s talking about and that bothers me. It’s not like I would be rich; I would still just be a working plumber. I work hard for my money, and the fact that he thinks I make a little too much that he just wants to redistribute it to other people. Some of them might need it, but at the same time, it’s not their discretion to do it – it’s mine.

Regarding Obama’s statement that he didn’t want to punish success:

PAM MEISTER: …taxing small businesses making $250,000 and above is going to help the people “behind you.” And yes, “spreading the wealth around.” How did you feel about that?

JOE WURZELBACHER:As soon as he said it, he contradicted himself. He doesn’t want to “punish” me, but – when you use the word “but,” you pretty much negate everything you just said prior to that. So he does want to punish me, he does want to punish me for working harder to – you know, my big thing is the American Dream. I work hard. You know, I was poor; my mom raised me and my brother by herself for a very long time until my dad came along. So I know what it’s like to suffer. It’s not like I was born with a silver spoon. Usually it was a wooden spoon and it was on my butt. It was just a contradiction of terms, what he said: he doesn’t want to punish me but he wants to redistribute my wealth. And what I mean when I say my wealth, I mean the collective. Eventually – I mean, just to sound a little silly here, but you need rich people. I mean, who are you going to work for?


Good Morning America’s Diane Sawyer spoke with Joe Wurzelbacher.
Having become the nation’s most famous plumber, Wurzelbacher explains that he doesn’t make $250,000 now, but hopes to do so as a small business owner. And he sees no reason why that will remain the cutoff in an Obama administration, anyway:


FOX channel....John Gibson is a good man, I have read his articles and liked his commentary for several years. John Gibson talked to Joe Wurzelbacher just before the debate began.


Joe The Plumber's Chat With Couric

Joe Wurzelbacher – immortalized during tonight's presidential debate as "Joe The Plumber" – spoke with CBS Evening News anchor ( Couric is Horrible disgusting - my words added ) Katie Couric shortly after the conclusion of the final debate between Barack Obama and John McCain.

To get a sense of just how central Wurzelbacher was to the debate, consider this: McCain and Obama mentioned Wurzelbacher 26 times during the 90 minute debate. By contrast, Iraq came up six times, and the word "economy" was used 16 times.

While still on the air, Couric asked Wurzelbacher what he thought of the debate. He said he wasn't swayed either way, though he seems to be leaning towards one of the candidates.

"I mean I have a pretty good idea who I’m going to vote for but you know that’s my - you know, the nice thing about going into the booth is only me and the lever knows," he said. "I think McCain did a fine job this evening, I think he brought up some good points. I do like his health care and I do like his, where he stands on taxes."

COURIC: We want to go to Joe the plumber, Joe Wurzelbacher from Toledo, Ohio, because Joe is telling me that he's got three live trucks parked outside his house - actually from Holland, Ohio, let me correct that, Joe. Was this a bit of a surreal experience, hearing your name mentioned not once, but twice, but almost half a dozen times during the course of this debate, Joe?

Mr. JOSEPH WURZELBACHER: Yeah, actually, surreal's a good word to use for it. It was - you know, I was glad I was able to act as some type of point, you know, to where they could sit there and hammer out what they both think, what they want to say. But ultimately, you know, the important part was the debate.

COURIC: And again, why don't you just reiterate quickly for us, Joe, because I want you to get back, get to your local news station where you are, how you felt about the statements made by the candidates vs. the statements you heard when they were out on the campaign trail talking to you.

WURZELBACHER: One thing I noticed that seemed like Obama changed his mind on offshore drilling, which I thought was a good move. I don't know how much he wants to do of it, I'd like to talk to - hear more about that. McCain I - made a solid - you know, McCain was solid in his performance.

Obama speaks well, but the one thing that's really important, that everyone in America really need to know is, you know, talk is talk. You know, he can speak pretty, but, you know, there's got to be action behind it. We've seen McCain, we know his actions. Even if you disagree with him, at least you know where he stands. McCain - or Obama, we're not sure where he stands yet, even after his debates. Like I said, he speaks eloquently, better than I do, but I honestly, I still don't know where he stands. He's said a lot, but none of his experience has backed it up. You know, the only experience I've seen or his actions are raising our taxes, so, you know, I'm middle class. I can't have my taxes raised anymore.

COURIC: Well, he supposedly will raise taxes only on people who make over $250,000 a year. Would you be in that category?

WURZELBACHER: Not right now at presently, but, you know, question, so he's going to do that now for people who make $250,000 a year. When's he going to decide that $100,000 is too much, you know? I mean, you're on a slippery slope here. You vote on somebody who decides that $250,000 and you're rich? And $100,000 and you're rich? I mean, where does it end? You know, that's - people got to ask that question.

COURIC: Could you just, Joe, explain quickly, and then we'll let you go, how you met both of the candidates?

WURZELBACHER: I've yet to meet John McCain. Obama came to my neighborhood and my son and I were outside tossing the football, and all of a sudden he showed up, and there went our football tossing for a while. And, you know, neighbors were outside asking him questions, and I didn't think they were asking him tough enough questions, so I thought, you know, I'll go over there. You know, I've always wanted to ask one of these guys a question and really corner them and get them to answer a question of--for once instead of tap dancing around it. And unfortunately I asked the question but I still got a tap dance. Do you - almost as good as Sammy Davis Jr.

COURIC: Joe Wurzelbacher, I mispronounced your last name earlier, Joe. Maybe you should fill in on "Meet the Press," Joe. Or "Face the Nation," I should add. I know they're looking for someone on "Meet the Press," that's why I said that. Joe, hey...

WURZELBACHER: Great. I've got opinions and I, you know, and that's it. But I - you know, everyone has opinions.

COURIC: Yeah, that's for darn sure. Well, Joe, thanks so much for talking with us. I'll let you get outside to your local news reporters. And really, I really appreciate your spending some time with us tonight. And now everybody knows your name, at least, right?

WURZELBACHER: I don't know if that's good or bad, but we'll see how, you know, the future brings.


McCain/Palin campaign ad with Joe the Plumber


Joe Biden just more words, just more LIES!

Biden is worried about the truth and it came from Joe the Plumber!

Wild Thing's comment.............

Middle America Says No To Socialism!!!! I think that Joe the Plumber is America’s everyman and woman all of us. There’s a Joe in every city and town in America. Thank God for Joe and for Sarah Palin.

Obama said “spread the wealth” to Joe’s face.

Now Obama and his spinners want to lie and claim Obama said something else or change the subject.

Obama said “spread the wealth” as in Karl Marx.

It should be frightening to anyone who sees this video to consider that here in a few short, concise comments by a plumber we hear more common sense and wisdom than we are used to hearing from our elected leaders in a month.

National Plumbing Organization Responds to 'Joe the Plumber' Focus

National Plumbing Organization Responds to 'Joe the Plumber' Focus

Market Watch

Today the president of the Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors--National Association (PHCC) released a statement applauding the efforts of both presidential candidates for their focus on plumbing contractors during the presidential debate on Wednesday night. Plumbing, heating and cooling contractors are small business owners who are becoming a prominent part of the debate on the country's economic future.

"We think it is great that comments from 'Joe the Plumber' were brought up several times in last night's presidential debate," said PHCC President Joe Schmitt, Joe Schmitt & Sons Plumbing & Heating, Englewood, Ohio. "Plumbing, heating and cooling contractors, most of whom operate small businesses, have been a big part of the American economy during our organization's 126-year history. Unfortunately, smaller companies like ours can be forgotten as the country focuses on big business issues."
"The impact of the next administration's tax policy will have a major impact on our members, no matter which party is in office. It is our sincere hope that both the Democratic and Republican candidates will think long and hard about the comments of my fellow Ohio plumber Joe Wurzelbacher as they consider future tax programs. It is imperative that entrepreneurs like Joe and PHCC members across the country have the opportunity to buy small businesses and create jobs for Americans. That is the American dream, after all."
"Small businesses throughout the nation are hurting during this economic downturn. With rising gas prices, the cost of health care and the uncertainties facing our financial markets, they're being hit from all sides. Reform of our nation's tax policies should be a top priority for the next administration. The survival of PHCC's members and America's small businesses may depend on this. The next president must consider the needs and contributions of plumbing, heating and cooling contractors as small businesses. This has to be priority in order to help this economy recover and to encourage investment from new business owners."
"Throughout our 126-year history PHCC has helped to protect the health and safety of the nation. It is now Washington's turn to step up to the plate and help save our businesses."

Wild Thing's comment.......

Cooll! This is great, with the attacks staring on Joe this is good news and a backup for what he has said how he feels. Not a backup for Joe , but to show Obama and his thugs this is not an isolated case of one person speaking out like Joe did.

It is all of us, all Americans that work hard and don't want socialism.

There once was a plumber named Joe
Made Obama look just like a schmoe
Knows his job to a tee
So he flushed him you see
To the place that all Marxists should go!

Sarah Palin in Maine and N.C. Crowds of 15,000


Gov. Sarah Palin, speaks at a campaign stop at the Bangor Airport, Thursday, Oct. 16, 2008, in Bangor, Maine They had to change hangers the small one could not hold everyone. Crowd estimated at almost 14,000 to 15,000. See below also crowd size at N.C.

Sarah Palin, right, with Sen. Olympia Snowe, R-Maine, reacts with excitment as she sees the crowd waiting for her in an airplane hangar during a campaign stop at the Bangor Airport



Sarah Palin has been campaigning in Maine, where she scolded Barack Obama for not disavowing a community activist group that registers voters.

The group known as ACORN - the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now - has drawn condemnation from the GOP ticket as its workers sign up voters in swing states. Nearly a dozen states and the FBI are looking into allegations of voter registration fraud.

Palin told about 6,000 people at Bangor International Airport that she feels right at home in Maine with all the steel-toed boots and NRA hats. She promised that she and John McCain would look out for the interests of the working class.

Note the doofus woman at the end of the video saying "I'm really glad I got to see her in person. I've only seen her on TV, and she didn't seem to connect. I'm one of those Republican women who was on the fence over her..." ....she is lame brain but we still want her vote. haha

At a rally in Bangor, Maine, she praised the debate performance of her running mate, John McCain. Then the GOP vice-presidential candidate added to the growing conversation about Joe Wurzelbacher. He is the plumber from Ohio whose name was mentioned more than two dozen times by the presidential candidates in their final debate Wednesday night.

McCain, Palin said, is “a leader who’s going to Washington to work for Joe the Plumber.” She later added: “You know, we want to cut taxes because we think like Joe or Jane the Plumber thinks.”

Sarah brings up the OTHER Joe......Joe Biden, the Democratic vice-presidential candidate. “Our opponents want to raise taxes because they think like that other Joe, that six-term senator from Delaware whom I’m running against,” she said.


And this from N.C.................

Palin says God blessed America with oil and gas



Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin said Thursday that God blessed the nation with oil and gas resources and other forms of energy that should be tapped to reduce U.S. dependence on foreign suppliers.

The Alaska governor told supporters at Elon University that she and GOP presidential nominee John McCain will develop new energy sources.

"God has so richly blessed this land, not just with the oil and the gas, but with wind and the hydro, the geothermal and the biomass," Palin said. "We'll tap into those."

Palin said some of the countries the U.S. relies on for energy use their resources "as a weapon." And she said the billions spent each year on oil imports should be circulated within the country "for the sake of the nation's security."

"We need to drill here and drill now," Palin said as the crowd chanted "drill baby, drill." A protester at the back of the crowd shouted "No blood for oil."


Palin's message delights crowd of 15,000 at Elon

The Times

ELON - Resplendent in GOP red heels, Sarah Palin toed the platform above home plate at Latham Park at Elon University and hammered home a low-taxes, small-government, pro-family, pro-America message to the delight of a large crowd.

Palin said Obama and Biden "think that government is the solution.

"I disagree with that. I think that government too often is the problem," she continued. "And we need government put back on your side so that our businesses and our families can keep more of what they produce and earn, and then you prioritize, you reinvest ... that is how jobs are created and our economy gets moving again."

In this election you have a choice between inspiring words and inspiring and trustworthy deeds that come from John McCain," she said. "Now North Carolina, I'm here to ask you - are you ready to help us carry this state to victory? Are you ready to make John McCain the next president of the United States?"

The crowd frequently interrupted her speech with full-throated approval, hoisting signs, waving pompoms and chanting "USA, USA .... Sarah, Sarah, Sarah" and "Drill, baby, drill."


'Sarah-liscious': Seen at the Palin rally Thursday

the times


Like her or not, few would call Sarah Palin boring.

That made for unusually colorful campaign buttons, T-shirts and signs at her political rally at Elon University on Thursday.

Many focused on the former beauty queen's physical appearance. Others played on the self-proclaimed hockey mom's convention acceptance speech joke that "lipstick" is the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull.

Here's a sampling:

-- "I'm proud to be voting for the Hot Chick!" This bold statement on a campaign button was accompanied by a photo of Palin from her time as Miss Wasilla, the Alaska town where she was later mayor.

-- Along similar lines, one campaign button proclaimed Palin "The Hottest VP from the Coolest State."

-- "Sarah-liscious," accompanied by the image of a lipstick print.

-- "Vote for the Man with the Lipstick-Wearing Pitbull."

-- "Read My Lipstick."

-- "Sarah Barracuda," a reference to Palin's nickname earned by her aggressive high school basketball play.

-- "You Go, Girl!" seen on campaign buttons and signs.

-- NObama. No explanation needed.

-- "Drill, baby, drill!" a reference to the McCain-Palin campaign's emphasis on finding new domestic oil.

-- "Mothers of 5 rock," seen on a sign one woman held up. As you'd guess, that's the number of children Pain has.

-- "Extra chromosome equals extra love," written on a sign Palin mentioned seeing in the crowd while giving her speech. She and her husband's youngest son was born this year with Down Syndrome.

-- Five Elon students painted their chests to spell Palin's last name. (Yes, they were male). Five students from Alamance Christian School were a little less bold, spelling her name with letters painted on T-shirts.

-- Political items on sale at the rally included decks of playing cards featuring mostly Republican political figures. But Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama is the joker in each deck.


Wild Thing's comment...........

Sarah's crowds are always so great, huge and they all love her just like we all do. I am so proud of her, thank you God for our VP candidate.

I just love it. Finally, somebody is speaking up for the old “Silent Majority” which has been mercilessly abused culturally and fiscally by leftist politicians for 40 years. Her message is really resonating with Americans who treasure the land that is almost lost. A simple message, too - smaller government and no terrorist pals in the WH.

There are more Republican seats (23) in the U.S. Senate up for election than Democratic seats (12). Of the 12 Democratic seats only 3 are not considered very safe for the Democrats. Of the 3 safe seats only one, South Dakota has a strong conservative running in opposition. He is Joel Dykstra.

Running for Senate in 2008, Canton native Joel Dykstra is a proven leader in South Dakota. He has served South Dakotans in the State Legislature since 2002. In 2004, Joel was elected Assistant House Majority Leader, a position he still holds today. He also chairs the House Taxation Committee and serves as Vice Chair of the House State Affairs Committee.

State Rep. Dykstra is rated as a hard-core conservative and his opponent, Sen. Johnson is rated as a Moderate Liberal Populist on the website. Dykstra is pro-life and against same-sex unions, while his opponent is primarily pro-abortion and supports the homosexual agenda (hate crimes and against keeping marriage the exclusive domain of one man and one woman.)

Senator Johnson received national attention in late 2006, when he began suffering from severe health problems. The possibility arose that he might step down. That would have led to a Republican filling his Senate Seat and returned control of the Senate to the GOP. However, Johnson’s health has improved and he is currently serving his duties as Senator.

State Representative Joel Dykstra website

Joel's opponent, Tim Johnson has voted repeatedly against domestic drilling and effectively increased our dependence on foreign oil. Now he’s flip-flopped on the issue - not completely - but just enough to make it a talking point for their media blitz. Another example of too little, too late is the current crisis in the financial sector. Senator Johnson’s much highlighted senior role on the Senate Banking committee does not seem to have translated into his sponsoring any meaningful reform efforts. It seems to have been business as usual in Washington these past years with incumbents taking large PAC checks for their reelection campaigns while looking the other way when it came time to provide leadership and oversight. So, like it or not, American tax payers are now in the mortgage and insurance business.

Sort of makes you want new representation in Washington.

Wild Thing's comment.........

I am posting this for those that are able to support Joel Dykstra in their area and if you know anyone that lives in his area as well you can send them this post.

This Presidential election will take our country forward and keeping America the best it has always been or down a road of total socialism and worse.

All the races in this election are important and we need to try to get as many Republicans as we can elected to get back the majority in the Houses. Joel is a conservative and that makes him in my opinion the Grade A Republican we need. I have posted about others running in other States that we need to keep an eye on as well and pray they win for their State and for America.

Fox to change World Series time for DESPERATE Barack Hussein Obama

Fox to change World Series time for Obama

Presidential candidate's ad buy interfering with game
By Paul J. Gough


Barack Obama might have the power to move the World Series by a few minutes.

To accommodate a half-hour Obama time buy on Fox on Oct. 29, Major League Baseball has agreed to move the start time of World Series Game 6 by about 15 minutes. That would move the start of the game from 8:20 p.m. ET or so to 8:35 p.m.

"Fox will accommodate Senator Obama's desire to communicate with voters in this longform format," Fox Sports said in a statement. "We are pleased that Major League Baseball has agreed to delay the first pitch of World Series Game 6 for a few minutes in order for Fox to carry his program on Oct. 29. If requested, the network would be willing to make similar time available to Senator McCain's campaign."

Along with CBS and NBC, Fox was approached by the Obama campaign last week to purchase the 8-8:30 p.m. time slot Oct. 29. If a Game 6 is needed, Fox is obligated to carry the game. That prevented the network from agreeing outright to carry the commercial, which was cleared by CBS and NBC last Thursday.

The blessing from MLB clears the way for Fox to air the promo and collect upward of $1 million in ad revenue for the half hour, more than what either CBS or NBC was charging.

While a big network ad buy from a presidential candidate is rare, it's not unprecedented for a network and sports league to move the start time of a sports event to accommodate a political broadcast. In early September, the National Football League moved up the kickoff time of the opening-night game -- which aired on NBC -- to 7 p.m. to make sure that the game would be over before Sen. John McCain stepped up to the podium to accept the nomination of the Republican party during the RNC.

Wild Thing's comment........

Obama’s “Heidi” moment.

Here we go - it's starting - OBAMA is going to make us change everything we love about this country. Starting with the start time of our GAME.

This will be his second European tour. He is not the POTUS and there is no vital emergency message he needs to convey. Obama’s message is one of self importance to propel him for his own ego. Most viewers will not want the game delayed for the false messiah. They are tuning in to watch baseball, not Obama.

His entire campaign has been scripted. He’s looking pretty desperate if he has to buy a half hour to reach Joe Six Pack.

His speech in Germany was seen by many here as "overboard." And let's not forget his acceptance speech at the Greek Temple in Colorado. Everything this guy has done is excessive, and over the top.

Too bad Sarah Palin isn’t scheduled to throw out the first pitch! That’d take the hype out of Obama’s prime time BS.

LOL I told Nicholas about this and I was all upset. He just laughed hahahha and I asked why aren't you upset? He explained that this is great and will show what a jerk Obama is and then handed me a cookie. hahahaha Nicholas is a genius of course and absolutely rigiht. giggle.... Thank you Nicholas.....GO NAVY!

John Murtha Spews Lies and Biden Can't Count

POS Murtha On Obama and says...... "Racist Western Pennsylvania"

And this on Murtha as well...................

Arrogant Murtha to Americans: "Tough Shit."

Jack Murtha is undoubtedly not only the most corrupt member of congress, but the most arrogant.

When complaints arose that it is still difficult to find information regarding earmarks embedded in legislations, Murtha had a wonderful answer to those Americans who wish to know where their tax dollars are going:

Last year, Congress promised to shed light on the secretive process. But the lists of earmarks are still buried in obscure documents that are difficult to find and search. Until Congress put them online a couple of weeks ago, the House disclosure letters, linking lawmakers to companies, were thick volumes of paper kept in a cabinet in the offices of the House Appropriations Committee.

When a reporter for Congressional Quarterly pointed out how difficult it remains to pull all the information together, Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., chairman of the committee that drafts the defense bill, had a quick answer: “Tough s***.”

Support Lt Col. William Russell For Congress!

John Murtha : “These people in western Pennsylvania would rather suffer under a John McCain presidency rather than vote for a black man,” noted Murtha. “And then they wonder why they are how they are, and why the region suffers economically. Pure ignorance. And I personally don’t give a damn what Bill Russell says, he’s just as racist!”

Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell.: “Western Pennsylvania is made up primarily of working class crackers, veterans, bitter clingers, and old, unyielding white people, most of whom would barely let Obama shine their shoes,” stated Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell.

Senator Joe Biden: “This has nothing to do with the terrorist Bill Ayers,” fired Senator Joe Biden, . “This has everything to do with race, and Americans know it deep down in their heart! Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, Laura Ingraham and Sean Hannity should shut their mouth, and quit spewing their vitriol!”

Joe Biden , well he just can't count. LOL

Wild Thing's comment.....

When oh when are they going to take this pig Murtha to the slaughter. I sure hope Lt. Col. Bill Russell (ret) can beat this jerk in this election and we can be rid of Murtha.

Ole Community Organizer with Socialist Agenda vs.Sen. McCain Debate Notes

This election is about keeping the socialists from radically altering this country.

According to FOX, Obama is complaining today that he would be ahead by at least 3 more points if it wasn’t for FOX News. What a cry baby. He just can't stand the fact that he only controls 90% of the media.

In 8 years, President Bush has not complained ONE TIME about unfair treatment of the media. If Obama wins, is he going to spend all of his time crying and complaining if someone hurts his feelings.

McCain gives a shoutout to Nancy Reagan in the hospital.

McCain won the handshake!!

Obama is Ahhhhing excessively early on

McCain is bringing up the Joe the plummer...woohoo!!!.......McCain plays the PLUMBER CARD!

Joe Wurzelbacher, aka "Joe the Plumber".........a small Business Owner Confronts Obama On Raising His Taxes

Obama left the neighborhood right after the conversation with Joe, admitting that the conversation was good practice for the debate.


You know, when Senator Obama ended up his conversation with Joe the plumber -- we need to spread the wealth around. In other words, we're going to take Joe's money, give it to Senator Obama, and let him spread the wealth around.

I want Joe the plumber to spread that wealth around. You told him you wanted to spread the wealth around.
The whole premise behind Senator Obama's plans are class warfare, let's spread the wealth around. I want small businesses -- and by the way, the small businesses that we're talking about would receive an increase in their taxes right now.
Who -- why would you want to increase anybody's taxes right now? Why would you want to do that, anyone, anyone in America, when we have such a tough time, when these small business people, like Joe the plumber, are going to create jobs, unless you take that money from him and spread the wealth around.

Thank GOODNESS he’s mentioning the plumber and Obama’s tax plan!

McCain just said “Class Warfare”!!!!!!......Get em John!

SPREAD THE WEALTH! CLASS WARFARE! *smacksmack* ‘Why would you want to increase taxes on anyone right now?’

McCain lands one squarely! Keep it up John. Do not stop !! Obama is defending his Socialist IDEALS! BOOM GET EM JOHN!

MCCAIN: Nobody likes taxes. Let's not raise anybody's taxes. OK?

OBAMA: Well, I don't mind paying a little more.

This is a photo of Barack Obama and other New Party socialists including Danny K Davis (center), from the front page of New Party News,

Spring 1996: Power Line reported that Obama is even quoted in this socialist newsletter.

Obama actively sought the New Party’s endorsement and urged the Marxist members to join his campaigns. The New Party went so far as to claim Obama as an official member of their organisation. The New Party socialists were affiliated with the Democratic Socialists of America.



John McCain has come out swinging and is landing blows!

McCain has Obama on the defensive, no doubt about it.

McCain is getting into his groove, he started a bit rough, but when he got to the corporate tax stuff he was getting into his groove.

"Senator Obama, you're a United States Senator. Why haven't you introduced legislation for all these great ideas you have? In fact, to expand on that, why haven't you introduced them since the last time you promised them, in your earlier election!"

If you wanted to run against Pres Bush, you shouldve run 4 years ago . YEAH!!! LOL Obama’s lost half of his talking points for the rest of this debate!!!

“I am not President Bush” BAM! BAM BAM

Mac Slap! WOOHOO!!! “I am not President Bush”...looked directly at him...Body Slam!! McCain’s hammering him!

Obama being disrespectful while McCain talking. Snickering and laughing. I can't stand Obama!

McCain calls Obama Senator Government. hahahaha

Obama is clearly a little flustered by McCain’s jabs McCain is on his game tonight.

Hussein says he has a “history of reaching across the aisle”????.......What an unmitigated ass.

What the heck is Obama taking about? Every time he speaks my mind wonders, He is such a nothing and very hard to listen to. He’s a moron!

McCain has him on the ropes! Obama is starting to stutter. McCain has him rattled


SCHIEFFER: Senator Obama, your campaign has used words like "erratic," "out of touch," "lie," "angry," "losing his bearings" to describe Senator McCain.
Senator McCain, your commercials have included words like "disrespectful," "dangerous," "dishonorable," "he lied." Your running mate said he "palled around with terrorists."

Are each of you tonight willing to sit at this table and say to each other's face what your campaigns and the people in your campaigns have said about each other?

And, Senator McCain, you're first.


Well, this has been a tough campaign. It's been a very tough campaign. And I know from my experience in many campaigns that, if Senator Obama had asked -- responded to my urgent request to sit down, and do town hall meetings, and come before the American people, we could have done at least 10 of them by now.
When Senator Obama was first asked, he said, "Any place, any time," the way Barry Goldwater and Jack Kennedy agreed to do, before the intervention of the tragedy at Dallas. So I think the tone of this campaign could have been very different.
And the fact is, it's gotten pretty tough. And I regret some of the negative aspects of both campaigns. But the fact is that it has taken many turns which I think are unacceptable.
One of them happened just the other day, when a man I admire and respect -- I've written about him -- Congressman John Lewis, an American hero, made allegations that Sarah Palin and I were somehow associated with the worst chapter in American history, segregation, deaths of children in church bombings, George Wallace. That, to me, was so hurtful.
And, Senator Obama, you didn't repudiate those remarks. Every time there's been an out-of-bounds remark made by a Republican, no matter where they are, I have repudiated them. I hope that Senator Obama will repudiate those remarks that were made by Congressman John Lewis, very unfair and totally inappropriate.
So I want to tell you, we will run a truthful campaign. This is a tough campaign. And it's a matter of fact that Senator Obama has spent more money on negative ads than any political campaign in history. And I can prove it. And, Senator Obama, when he said -- and he signed a piece of paper that said he would take public financing for his campaign if I did -- that was back when he was a long-shot candidate -- you didn't keep your word.
And when you looked into the camera in a debate with Senator Clinton and said, "I will sit down and negotiate with John McCain about public financing before I make a decision," you didn't tell the American people the truth because you didn't.
And that's -- that's -- that's an unfortunate part. Now we have the highest spending by Senator Obama's campaign than any time since Watergate.


McCain is really on his game!

McCain has blamed Obama for not using the town halls to talk face to face. 10 townhalls any place anytime! Barrack didn’t do it! Go John!

Bringing up Lewis now...keep em hitting....McCain challenging Obama on the John Lewis stuff .

WOW GO John GO! Finally and this is great!



I mean, look, if we want to talk about Congressman Lewis, who is an American hero, he, unprompted by my campaign, without my campaign's awareness, made a statement that he was troubled with what he was hearing at some of the rallies that your running mate was holding, in which all the Republican reports indicated were shouting, when my name came up, things like "terrorist" and "kill him," and that you're running mate didn't mention, didn't stop, didn't say "Hold on a second, that's kind of out of line."
And I think Congressman Lewis' point was that we have to be careful about how we deal with our supporters.
But when people suggest that I pal around with terrorists, then we're not talking about issues. What we're talking about...

MCCAIN: Well, let me just say I would...

SCHIEFFER: (inaudible)


Let me just say categorically I'm proud of the people that come to our rallies. Whenever you get a large rally of 10,000, 15,000, 20,000 people, you're going to have some fringe peoples. You know that. And I've -- and we've always said that that's not appropriate.
But to somehow say that group of young women who said "Military wives for McCain" are somehow saying anything derogatory about you, but anything -- and those veterans that wear those hats that say "World War II, Vietnam, Korea, Iraq," I'm not going to stand for people saying that the people that come to my rallies are anything but the most dedicated, patriotic men and women that are in this nation and they're great citizens.
And I'm not going to stand for somebody saying that because someone yelled something at a rally -- there's a lot of things that have been yelled at your rallies, Senator Obama, that I'm not happy about either.
In fact, some T-shirts that are very...

OBAMA: John, I...


... unacceptable. So the point is -- the point is that I have repudiated every time someone's been out of line, whether they've been part of my campaign or not, and I will continue to do that.
But the fact is that we need to absolutely not stand for the kind of things that have been going on. I haven't.


John is ruling this debate and smashing the Pumpkin! Woo hoo!

Obama’s people smear Palin and McCain. Obama has spent more money on negative ads than any other campaign in history.

The ONE looks VERY TICKED. It’s all over his face, he can’t stand being confronted with the truth.

McCain calls him a liar and gives two shinning examples - Obama responds “well ... look. (thinking of a reply) “Political campaigns are tough.”

Obama is now attacking Palin.

McCain stands behind supporters!


Go, McCain!

John is FINALLY getting angry at this stupid Muslim

Obama offended at comments that he pals around with terrorists!

McCain not standing for any bull..people who come to his rallies are patriotic and alot of stuff at Obama’s rally unacceptable including the T shirts!!!

Mentions those disgusting C word shirts with Sarah's name on them, by Obama’s supporters.

McCain has the truth on his side....

McCain—saya he’s proud of the people who comes to our rallies.

Defends his supporters—vets—says a lot of things said at your rallies, Sen. Odummy.

Odummy flustered for a moment. Oh my gosh, he’s going after Ayers and ACORN now.


McCain:“I don’t care about an old washed-up terrorist but I really care about voter fraud being carried out by your campaign!”

McCain: we need to know the full relationship with Ayers;

HITS ODUMMY WITH ACORN HARD!!! MAC now challenges him on AYERS and ACORN !!!!!!!


OBAMA: Well, look, Bob, as I said...

SCHIEFFER: I mean, do you take issue with that?

OBAMA: You know, here's what I would say. I mean, we can have a debate back and forth about the merits of each other's campaigns. I suspect we won't agree here tonight.

What I think is most important is that we recognize that to solve the key problems that we're facing, if we're going to solve two wars, the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression, if we can -- if we're going to focus on lifting wages that have declined over the last eight years and create jobs here in America, then Democrats, independents and Republicans, we're going to have to be able to work together.

And what is important is making sure that we disagree without being disagreeable. And it means that we can have tough, vigorous debates around issues. What we can't do, I think, is try to characterize each other as bad people. And that has been a culture in Washington that has been taking place for too long. And I think...

MCCAIN: Well, Bob, you asked me a direct question.

SCHIEFFER: Short answer, yes, short answer.


Yes, real quick. Mr. Ayers, I don't care about an old washed-up terrorist. But as Senator Clinton said in her debates with you, we need to know the full extent of that relationship.
We need to know the full extent of Senator Obama's relationship with ACORN, who is now on the verge of maybe perpetrating one of the greatest frauds in voter history in this country, maybe destroying the fabric of democracy. The same front outfit organization that your campaign gave $832,000 for "lighting and site selection." So all of these things need to be examined, of course.

SCHIEFFER: All right. I'm going to let you respond and we'll extend this for a moment.

OBAMA: Bob, I think it's going to be important to just -- I'll respond to these two particular allegations that Senator McCain has made and that have gotten a lot of attention.

In fact, Mr. Ayers has become the centerpiece of Senator McCain's campaign over the last two or three weeks. This has been their primary focus. So let's get the record straight. Bill Ayers is a professor of education in Chicago.

Forty years ago, when I was 8 years old, he engaged in despicable acts with a radical domestic group. I have roundly condemned those acts. Ten years ago he served and I served on a school reform board that was funded by one of Ronald Reagan's former ambassadors and close friends, Mr. Annenberg.

Other members on that board were the presidents of the University of Illinois, the president of Northwestern University, who happens to be a Republican, the president of The Chicago Tribune, a Republican- leaning newspaper.

Mr. Ayers is not involved in my campaign. He has never been involved in this campaign. And he will not advise me in the White House. So that's Mr. Ayers.

Now, with respect to ACORN, ACORN is a community organization. Apparently what they've done is they were paying people to go out and register folks, and apparently some of the people who were out there didn't really register people, they just filled out a bunch of names.

It had nothing to do with us. We were not involved. The only involvement I've had with ACORN was I represented them alongside the U.S. Justice Department in making Illinois implement a motor voter law that helped people get registered at DMVs.

Now, the reason I think that it's important to just get these facts out is because the allegation that Senator McCain has continually made is that somehow my associations are troubling.

Let me tell you who I associate with. On economic policy, I associate with Warren Buffett and former Fed Chairman Paul Volcker. If I'm interested in figuring out my foreign policy, I associate myself with my running mate, Joe Biden or with Dick Lugar, the Republican ranking member on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, or General Jim Jones, the former supreme allied commander of NATO.

Those are the people, Democrats and Republicans, who have shaped my ideas and who will be surrounding me in the White House. And I think the fact that this has become such an important part of your campaign, Senator McCain, says more about your campaign than it says about me.

MCCAIN: Well, again, while you were on the board of the Woods Foundation, you and Mr. Ayers, together, you sent $230,000 to ACORN. So -- and you launched your political campaign in Mr. Ayers' living room.

OBAMA: That's absolutely not true.

MCCAIN: And the facts are facts and records are records.

OBAMA: And that's not the facts.


And it's not the fact -- it's not the fact that Senator Obama chooses to associate with a guy who in 2001 said that he wished he had have bombed more, and he had a long association with him. It's the fact that all the -- all of the details need to be known about Senator Obama's relationship with them and with ACORN and the American people will make a judgment.
And my campaign is about getting this economy back on track, about creating jobs, about a brighter future for America. And that's what my campaign is about and I'm not going to raise taxes the way Senator Obama wants to raise taxes in a tough economy. And that's really what this campaign is going to be about.


SCHIEFFER: So I'll begin by asking both of you this question, and I'll ask you to answer first, Senator Obama. Why would the country be better off if your running mate became president rather than his running mate?


Well, Americans have gotten to know Sarah Palin. They know that she's a role model to women and other -- and reformers all over America. She's a reformer. She is -- she took on a governor who was a member of her own party when she ran for governor. When she was the head of their energy and natural resources board, she saw corruption, she resigned and said, "This can't go on."
She's given money back to the taxpayers. She's cut the size of government. She negotiated with the oil companies and faced them down, a $40 billion pipeline of natural gas that's going to relieve the energy needs of the United -- of what they call the lower 48.
She's a reformer through and through. And it's time we had that bresh of freth air (sic) -- breath of fresh air coming into our nation's capital and sweep out the old-boy network and the cronyism that's been so much a part of it that I've fought against for all these years.
She'll be my partner. She understands reform. And, by the way, she also understands special-needs families. She understands that autism is on the rise, that we've got to find out what's causing it, and we've got to reach out to these families, and help them, and give them the help they need as they raise these very special needs children.
She understands that better than almost any American that I know. I'm proud of her.
And she has ignited our party and people all over America that have never been involved in the political process. And I can't tell how proud I am of her and her family.
Her husband's a pretty tough guy, by the way, too.


SCHIEFFER: Let's go to -- let's go to a new topic. We're running a little behind. Let's talk about energy and climate control.


Well, you know, I admire so much Senator Obama's eloquence. And you really have to pay attention to words. He said, we will look at offshore drilling. Did you get that? Look at. We can offshore drill now. We've got to do it now. We will reduce the cost of a barrel of oil because we show the world that we have a supply of our own. It's doable. The technology is there and we have to drill now.
I have fought against -- well, one of them would be the marketing assistance program. Another one would be a number of subsidies for ethanol.
I oppose subsidies for ethanol because I thought it distorted the market and created inflation; Senator Obama supported those subsidies.
I would eliminate the tariff on imported sugarcane-based ethanol from Brazil.
I know how to save billions. I saved the taxpayer $6.8 billion by fighting a deal for a couple of years, as you might recall, that was a sweetheart deal between an aircraft manufacturer, DOD, and people ended up in jail.
But I would fight for a line-item veto, and I would certainly veto every earmark pork-barrel bill. Senator Obama has asked for nearly $1 billion in pork-barrel earmark projects...

Now, on the subject of free trade agreements.


I am a free trader. And I need -- we need to have education and training programs for displaced workers that work, going to our community colleges.
But let me give you another example of a free trade agreement that Senator Obama opposes. Right now, because of previous agreements, some made by President Clinton, the goods and products that we send to Colombia, which is our largest agricultural importer of our products, is -- there's a billion dollars that we -- our businesses have paid so far in order to get our goods in there.
Because of previous agreements, their goods and products come into our country for free. So Senator Obama, who has never traveled south of our border, opposes the Colombia Free Trade Agreement. The same country that's helping us try to stop the flow of drugs into our country that's killing young Americans.
And also the country that just freed three Americans that will help us create jobs in America because they will be a market for our goods and products without having to pay -- without us having to pay the billions of dollars -- the billion dollars and more that we've already paid.
Free trade with Colombia is something that's a no-brainer. But maybe you ought to travel down there and visit them and maybe you could understand it a lot better.
Well, let me just say that that this is -- he -- Senator Obama doesn't want a free trade agreement with our best ally in the region but wants to sit down across the table without precondition to -- with Hugo Chavez, the guy who has been helping FARC, the terrorist organization.
Free trade between ourselves and Colombia, I just recited to you the benefits of concluding that agreement, a billion dollars of American dollars that could have gone to creating jobs and businesses in the United States, opening up those markets.
So I don't -- I don't think there's any doubt that Senator Obama wants to restrict trade and he wants to raise taxes. And the last president of the United States that tried that was Herbert Hoover, and we went from a deep recession into a depression.

There were some other topic, but all in all McCain did GREAT and Obama left very ticked I am sure of it. The media can say what they want about the debate but McCain won this one hands down in a big way.

McCain mentioned Ayers, he mentioned Acorn, he mentioned Infanticide...all without sounding angry. Good performance. Senator Government will stick...same with Joe the Plummer, same with “you should have ran 4 years ago”....great lines.

Obama tends to say “...But the important thing is...” and then change or alter the subject. It’s a way to trivialize what was being discussed.

He also LOVES Alinsky’s focus on ALWAYS USE RIDICULE. His sarcastic smiles and laughter, his mocking, superior tone... Put the other guy down. It ALWAYS gives you a nice gang of scaredy-cat followers who are just glad it’s not them you are mocking.

Did anyone else notice Obama sipping water (bad sign) and looking at the moderator, basically IMPLORING HIM to cut McCain off?

Obama is downright dangerous - And even more so with a Pelosi House and Reid Senate.

I started laughing when McCain called him “Senator Government”. DEFEAT SENATOR GOVERNMENT!!!

Barack and Michelle Obama's Socialist Plans For America

American Thinker ...for complete article

For conservatives opposed to an Obama presidency, the last few days have brought the wonder of the smoking gun: Obama really was a socialist. Combine that hidden paper trail with his Ayers affiliation, and it's reasonable to believe that Obama still holds these socialist political views.

~ snipet ~
In order to stir ordinary Americans to the sense of outrage those of us in the blogosphere feel, we need to remind them that socialism is not simply a more liberal version of ordinary American politics. It is, instead, its own animal, and a very feral, dangerous animal indeed.

~ snnipet ~

My favorite example is always Nazi Germany because so many people forget that it was a socialist dictatorship. Or perhaps they're ignorant of the fact that the Nazi's official and frequently forgotten name was the National Socialist German Worker's Party. In other words, while most people consider the Nazi party to be a totalitarian ideology arising from the right, it was, in fact, a totalitarian party arising from the left.

Practically within minutes of the Nazi takeover of the German government, individuals were subordinated to the state. Even industries that remained privately owned (and there were many, as opponents of the Nazis = socialist theory like to point out), were allowed to do so only if their owners bent their efforts to the benefit of the state. Show a hint of individualism, and an unwillingness to cooperate, and you'd swiftly find yourself in Dachau, with a government operative sitting in that executive chair you once owned.

We all know what life was like in this Nazi socialist state. Citizens immediately lost the right to bear arms; thought crimes were punished with imprisonment and death; children were indoctrinated into giving their allegiance to the state, not the family; the government dictated the way in which people could live their day-to-day lives; and people who appeared to be outliers to the harmony of the conscienceless government entity people were dehumanized and eventually slaughtered.

And here's something important for you to realize as you think about what happened in that socialist state. While a core group of people, Hitler included, undoubtedly envisioned these extremes as their initial goals, most didn't. They just thought that, after the utter chaos of the 1920s (especially the economic chaos), the socialists would calm the economy (which they did), and simply remove from people the painful obligation of having to make their way in the world. It was only incrementally that the average German bought into the ever-more-extreme demands of the state - and those who didn't buy in were coerced because of the state's unfettered willingness to use its vast, brute power to subordinate individuals to its demand.

~ snipet~

Regardless of Obama’s presumed good intentions, socialism always brings a society to a bad ending. I don’t want to believe that Americans who live in a free society that allows people to think what they will, do what they want, and succeed if they can, will willingly hand themselves over to the socialist ideology. They must therefore be reminded, again and again and again, that socialism isn’t just another political party; it’s the death knell to freedom. So remember, while McCain wants to change DC, Obama wants to change America.


Wild Thing's comment.......

The article is excellent and just too long to put here. If you have the time it is well worth reading.

We are getting down to the wire now in this election and there are still too many people that either are not listening or don't understand how dangerous Obama is for our country.

America is so wonderful and imo this election is the most important one in my lifetime.

Gov. Sarah Palin Had 3 Rallies In N.H.

Republican vice presidential nominee, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, speaks at a campaign rally at the Dover High School in Dover, N.H., Wednesday, Oct. 15, 2008

DOVER, N.H. - Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin said Wednesday she feels a kinship with the moose-hunting, tax-hating voters of New Hampshire who gave John McCain his first primary victory.

At the first of three rallies, the Alaska governor said New Hampshire's state motto, "Live Free or Die," would be a good motto for her state.

"You're a lot like the people of Alaska. We all love good moose hunting, I know that. We both so enjoy our great lands, with clean water, fresh air and abundant wildlife and good fishing. We love being outdoors, and I know that is New Hampshire also," she said. "And we both take seriously your state's motto _ I think it should be ours also _ "Live Free or Die."

Alaska's state motto is "North to the Future."

The two states are the only two with neither a general income nor a general sales tax, and Palin played up that history in repeating her argument that Democratic nominee Barack Obama would raise taxes.

The rallies all had a huge turnout similar to what we have been seeing. Fantastic!!!

Sarah Palin Gets GREAT Repsonse In Gaffe Machine Biden's OLD Hometown Scranton

Sea of red to greet Palin in Scranton



An e-mail sent from the McCain-Palin campaign urges those attending to wear red to the rally.

“We want to flood the venue with red to show our strength and determination to turn Pennsylvania red on Nov. 4,” the e-mail stated.

Red is the color used by political pundits to depict which states are Republican and blue is used to designate Democratic areas.

Carol Oleski, director of the Scranton office of Democrats for McCain, said the level of enthusiasm building up to Palin’s arrival is “unbelievable.”

“Absolutely, we will all be wearing red,” Oleski said. “We were told 10,000 tickets would be available for the event and they are going out fast. I expect a majority, if not all of them, will go.”

The Riverfront Sports Complex, depending on how it is configured, could hold up to 12,000 people.

Oleski said people from all areas have been calling for tickets. She said requests have come in from New York, New Jersey, Pottstown, Allentown and even California.

“Some people are actually flying in for this event,” Oleski said. “Most of the ticket requests have come from surrounding counties, but I expect a lot of people from out of the area to be here.”

Oleski said Palin’s visit has excited the volunteers in the office who she said have long awaited the Alaska governor’s arrival.

“We are all glad that Gov. Palin is giving this area the opportunity to see and hear her,” Oleski said. “We feel this area is extremely critical to the outcome of this election.”

Doors to the Palin rally open at 11 a.m. It is unknown exactly what time Palin will address the crowd.

Staunch Hillary Clinton supporter Lynette Long, a Bethesda, Md. psychologist, addressed a group at the Scranton office of Democrats for McCain on Monday.

Long, a vocal opponent of the Democratic caucus process that resulted in the nomination of Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, has become an avid supporter of the McCain-Palin ticket.

Long believes the efforts produced invalid results in the caucus states and the nomination of Obama as the Democratic candidate for the presidency is “against the will of the people.”

Long has now endorsed the McCain-Palin ticket.


For those that may not know Katies place has been closed for something like 15 years. LOL Biden is a total idiot.

Governor Sarah Palin took the McCain-Palin campaign into Sen. Joe Biden’s childhood city, pulling out all the stops at a rally in Scranton, Pennsylvania .

Scranton is Biden’s hometown and Sen. Clinton has roots there as well.

Just before Palin took the state at the indoor recreation center, the lights were dimmed and red, white and blue spotlights pulsated through the arena. Queen’s “We will Rock You” blared for a few minutes and then Palin entered to the “Rocky” theme. But there was more. Palin had a surprise guest. Country legend Lee Greenwood was in the house. After singing the Star Spangled Banner he launched into his hit “Proud to be an American”, drawing huge cheers and a few tear-filled eyes.



Lee Greenwood sings National Anthem Rally

Lee Greenwood God Bless the USA

Palin said, “Joe Biden had said that there’s no such thing as clean coal when we talked about clean-coal technology that’s needed.” The crowd booed. “Biden also has called environmentally friendly offshore drilling, he’s called it raping the outer continental shelf,” she said to more boos.

The crowd size was double of the crowd that showed up for Biden, Clintons rally.

Sarah Palin's campaigning is infused with contagious joy

From Hugh

I'm watching Sarah Palin address a campaign rally in Scranton, Pennsylvania, live on Fox News, and I can't recall ever seeing a GOP rally like this. The crowd is genuinely pumped, which is rare enough. But what's genuinely amazing is watching and listening to Gov. Palin. I can't recall ever seeing a politician who so clearly relishes campaigning. She's animated and enthused. I know she's speaking from a teleprompter, and she's probably delivered large chunks of this same speech before many times, but she's tuned in on every line.

She is simply infused with joy. And it flows off the stage, and it's picked up quite powerfully by the TV cameras.

On his best occasions, Reagan had this same quality, but it was more muted, more of a twinkle from behind his carefully maintained stage presence. With Gov. Palin, it's nearly continuous and much more obvious. And I think that's a big part of why she inspires the same harsh counter-reactions from political opponents that Reagan did — the same desperate need to ridicule and belittle, to delegitimize. (You'll see it in the comments to this post within minutes after it goes up, of course.) She has to be shouted down and scorned, because if people are allowed to listen to her, that damned joy might turn out to be ... contagious!

It's a quality that was almost entirely missing from the speeches of, for example, Hillary Clinton, who turned every speech into a siege and whose grim purpose was impressive but slightly scary. Bubba, however, could work himself into joy at the drop of a hat.

Sarah Palin is just haviing a grand old time. If she's afraid of looking foolish, or of her elitist critics, or of her ticket's chances on November 4th, then she's entirely suppressed those fears. I freely admit that with me as a listener, and probably most of the folks at this rally, she's preaching to the choir. But so, too, are lots of politicians, in most of their speeches. And they just don't come across with this same zest.


Wild Thing's comment.........

This is in contrast to the "big gun" rally on Sunday with Hillary, Biden, Bill, etc. that had 3000 people in the same venue IN BIDEN'S HOMETOWN!!!!

Sarah doubled the crowd size from what I have read.

Sarah Palin was also on the Rush Limbaugh show yesterday.


God bless you Sarah Palin!!

Actor Robert Duvall Blasts Palin Critics

Actor Duvall Blasts Palin Critics

abc news

ABC News' Imtiyaz Delawala Reports: Introducing Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin at a GOP fundraiser Monday, actor Robert Duvall blasted conservatives who have criticized the McCain-Palin ticket in recent days, calling conservative columnist George Will a "super-nerd" and former Wisconsin governor Tommy Thompson a "block of wood".

At an RNC fundraiser in McLean, VA, Duvall introduced Palin for the third time since her nomination to the Republican ticket, taking the opportunity to accuse Republicans critical of the McCain campaign as giving "credence to the other side."

"It bothers me that certain people in the Republican Party are attacking the McCain-Palin ticket, like super-nerd George...What's his name?” Duvall asked, prompting a few attendees to laugh and shout out George Will. “George...George, I can't even think. George Will," Duvall said, referring to the Washington Post columnist who has been critical of Palin.

The legendary actor then attacked former Wisconsin Governor Tommy Thompson, who campaigned with McCain last Friday in La Crosse, Wisconsin. Thompson had expressed unhappiness with the McCain campaign in an article that appeared in Sunday's New York Times. Asked if he was happy with Sen. McCain's campaign, Thompson told the paper, "No," adding, "I don't know who is."

"Tommy Thompson of uh, that original block of wood, from Wisconsin," Duvall responded at the fundraiser. "He attacked the team today. I mean, that's like being, instead of Monday morning quarterbacking, it’s during the game. It's Friday and Saturday night quarterbacking. It's like giving credence to the other side.”

The rhetoric was a departure from recent days, where Palin has toned down her criticism of Democratic presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama. Duvall used no such caution in his remarks, saying of Obama, "we gotta keep this guy out of the White House."

Duvall then introduced Palin, who quickly thanked him "for that very kind introduction"

Wild Thing's comment..........

Duvall is right LOL Tommy Thompson is indeed a block of wood. Duvall did good and he also introduced Sarah at the New Mexico Rally that I posted about.

Gov.Sarah Palin and Our National Security

Alaska is the first line of defense in our missile interceptor defense system. The 49th Missile Defense Battalion of the Alaska National Guard is the unit that protects the entire nation from ballistic missile attacks. It’s on permanent active duty, unlike other Guard units.
As governor of Alaska, Palin is briefed on highly classified military issues, homeland security, and counterterrorism. Her exposure to classified material may rival even Biden's.
She's also the commander in chief of the Alaska State Defense Force (ASDF), a federally recognized militia incorporated into Homeland Security's counterterrorism plans.
Palin is privy to military and intelligence secrets that are vital to the entire country's defense. Given Alaska's proximity to Russia, she may have security clearances we don't even know about.
According to the Washington Post, she first met with McCain in February, but nobody ever found out. This is a woman used to keeping secrets.
She can be entrusted with our national security, because she already is.

A Powerful Story About Sarah Palin - A Must See


Paying Special Attention to Special Needs (NBC news Sarah Palin story)


All along the campaign trail, children and adults with Down syndrome have been drawn to Gov. Sarah Palin's openness in how she deals with being a parent of a special needs child.

Wild Thing's comment........

This is a special story and it shows that every life is important and has a positive impact on all our lives... I love it.

I truly believe Sarah was called for such a time as this. Yes our country is on the verge of saying no to Sarah and picking socialism. but in my heart I believe with all I am that in the end, on Nov. 4th. This country will pick Sarah in an overwhelming way.

Not all of us are called regarding the polls and not all of us take polls ( on the phone or online or through the mail) , and we all know how most of the polls are fixed either by the wording or the ones online that can easily be fixed. Polls on this mean nothnig.

The crowds turning out for Sarah are enormous and loving and enthuastic for Sarah and what she brings, the America we all love and she loves too.

I believe that God has prepared Sarah to help lead our country in the right direction. I don’t think that it is a coincidence that Trig was born at this particular time. Our trials are allowed by God to make us stronger. Sarah is exactly what this country needs for inspiration. She does not hide her light under a bushel.

And Cindy McCain too, she encourages people to give of their own time and resources and leads by example. That’s in stark contrast to the liberal view on helping others by just taking other people’s money and wasting it on programs that don’t work or help anyone in the long run.

Clinton Supporters Attend Special Fund Raiser For Republican Ticket

Clinton Supporters Aid Palin

New York Times

Gov. Sarah Palin met with a group of Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton’s former supporters Tuesday evening at a special fund-raising reception organized for them on behalf of the Republican ticket.

The reception, which organizers said brought in more than $500,000, was part of an extended evening of fund-raising for Ms. Palin and Senator John McCain’s presidential campaign at the Grand Hyatt in New York that officials estimated raised more than $8 million.

Ms. Palin, along with her husband, Todd, mingled and posed for pictures with the group of about 20, before appearing at the larger finance event, which McCain campaign officials said was the last time Mr. McCain would personally appear at a fund-raiser before the election. It was also the first time the pair had appeared together for donors.

More than 1,000 people paid $1,000 each for tickets to the main fund-raiser.

Nearly 250 people who contributed $25,000 got dinner beforehand with Mr. McCain.

The reception for former Clinton supporters, which also was attended by Rick Davis, the McCain campaign manager, was spearheaded by Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild, a former telecommunications entrepreneur and “Hillraiser” who brought in more than $100,000 for Mrs. Clinton’s campaign; Calvin Fayard, also a former Hillraiser and longtime Democratic donor from Louisiana, and Miguel Lausell, a former senior political adviser to the Clinton campaign from Puerto Rico.

Other prominent former Clinton supporters in attendance included John Coale, a former Hillraiser, Washington lawyer and husband of Fox News television host Greta Van Susteren.

Everyone at the reception contributed $28,500 to McCain-Palin Victory 2008, a joint fund-raising committee for the Republican National Committee and several state Republican parties.

While Mrs. Clinton has implored her former supporters to back Senator Barack Obama, some still harbor ill will towards him, organizers said.

Wild Thing's comment..........

This has got to burn some Dems hearing about this dinner. LOL

I wonder how many out of those 18,000,000 voters are PUMA. The media keeps trying to tell us that the Hillary voters for McCain are just a myth. Well these people put out a lot of money to be there so, so much for the myth.

Traitor To America John Kerry Vs. Hero and Great American Jeff Beatty

Jeff Beatty Says John Kerry Should Have Voted "No" on Bailout Bill

Republican U.S. Senate candidate Jeff Beatty said the bailout bill provides cover for politicians instead of recovery for Main Street and that John Kerry should have voted against it. Beatty vows to change this bad bill when he's elected into the Senate.


The Bad ( Traitor Kerry) & Ugly

John Kerry has expressed anti-American sentiment throughout his public life -- beginning with his testimony before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in 1971.

Early last year in Davos, Switzerland, Kerry ingratiated himself with Europeans by again making public comments that revealed his true nature and shocked many people here at home.

Speaking at the World Economic Forum, he openly ridiculed the United States to the delight of many in the audience. "The problem with Americans is they have an unfortunate habit of seeing the world through an American lens," Kerry said. He also referred to the United States as an "international pariah."

Traitor John Kerry Today......................

John Kerry and Gwen Moore Rally For Obama-Biden (October 14th, 2008)

Gotta love the Kerry-Edwards signs filling out the scene. LMAO Yes, this is October 2008.

Latest News on Jeff Betty vs. John Kerry

Jeff Beatty on the deck of the USS Guam after being evacuated from Grenada

Beatty camp reacts to Yankees charge, accuses Kerry of ‘smears’

Republican Jeff Beatty's campaign responded Friday to the Kerry campaign's earlier charge that he roots for the New York Yankees, accusing the Kerry campaign of dodging questions and engaging in smear tactics.

In response to Beatty's call for an examination of Kerry's ties to bailout insurance company AIG, Brigid O'Rourke, a spokeswoman for the Boston Democrat, told the Boston Globe: "In case Jeff Beatty hasn't noticed, that AIG stock he's talking about isn't looking so hot these days - sort of like his favorite baseball team, the New York Yankees."

The Beatty camp said the Harwich Republican is not a Yankees fan and said that O'Rourke made the remark because a Yankees hat was put on Beatty to keep bandages on his head when he was injured rescuing U.S. hostages in Grenada (photo above).

Instead of engaging on the issue, Beatty spokeswoman Christine Hunsinger said, the Kerry camp chose political smears.

"When asked serious questions, John Kerry sidesteps, smears, and then goes on the attack," Hunsinger said. "Add to the long list of people Kerry has insulted those military doctors and medical students, some Yankees fans or Red Sox fans like Jeff, who risked their lives to tend to soldiers while under fire in Grenada. If these weren't such serious times, we would ask for an apology. Instead we say it's time to fire John Kerry."

Traitor John Kerry's quotes about Grenada from the past:

Kerry was scornful, for instance, of the Grenada invasion, launched by Reagan the previous October to evacuate US medical students after a Marxist-backed military coup on the Caribbean island. At one point he likened it to "Boston College playing football against the Sisters of Mercy."

Kerry told The Cape Codder newspaper: "The invasion of Grenada represents the Reagan policy of substituting public relations for diplomatic relations . . . no substantial threat to US interests existed and American lives were not endangered . . .The invasion represented a bully's show of force against a weak Third World nation. The invasion only served to heighten world tensions and further strain brittle US/Soviet and North/South relations."

Shaking Things Up With Sarah Palin: "Are You Ready?"

Posted by Wild Thing at 05:08 PM | Comments (2)

Barack Hussein Obama Indoctrination In School Books

This is from the mother of a Racine Unified School District 8th grader.

"My 8th grade son is in an advanced English class at a public middle school here in Racine, Wisconsin. I just found out that my son's new (copyright 2008) Wisconsin - McDougal Littell Literature book has 15 pages covering Barack Obama.
I was shocked - No John McCain, no Hillary Clinton, no George Bush - Just Barack Obama. I'm wondering how it is that Obama's story gets put into an 8th grade literature book? It would be one thing, if it was just the tidbit about his boyhood days, but 15 pages, and they talk about his "Life of Service". Honestly, what has Obama really done to be included in this book? Not only that, but on page 847 there is a photo of Obama at the 2004 Democratic Convention with at least 8 Obama signs in the background! Front & center is an sign.
Now I understand that many teachers are liberals, but does the school have the right to shove Obama down our kid's throats? All the kids grouped together and read the story. After that, they discussed it... I guess it appears that Obama is planning ahead. If he doesn't get his coveted Presidency, Obama is going to make sure, that the younger generations know all about him, and his "life of service".
If you would like to see the 15 page story on Obama, it appears that you can order this book online. There is a note in the book that says, For more on Barack Obama, visit the Literature Center at The book is: Wisconsin - 8th grade - McDougal Littell Literature - copyright 2008. The Obama story starts on page 830. I hope you will take the time to look at this book. I'm really angry about this - In fact, I would love to rip the pages right out of this book.
By the way, you might find this interesting: I did a little checking on McDougal Littell, and it appears that MCDOUGAL, ALFRED L CHICAGO , IL 60611 - N/A/RETIRED has been making contributions to Barack Obama's campaign!
I found that information on this website.
Now I'm not an expert at these things (just a PTA mom), but It looks to me like Alfred McDougal is connected to McDougal Littell the same company that publishes the 8th grade textbook that has 15 pages on Obama. Like I said, I'm not an expert, but I'm sure you have someone who can delve into the dirty little details.
I guess my question is: Is it ethical for an Obama supporter to publish an educational book which has a 15 page Barrack Obama story in it? If the tax payers are paying for these books, why is it okay for McDougal Littell to promote Obama? This really bothers me. I would have no problem with it, if Obama had actually done something important. Why is Obama being put up on a pedestal, before he actually wins the pedestal? All I can say, is we can thank the liberal media, and now the liberal book publishers. Thanks to them, I'm sure there are probably thousands of these books all across the United States."

Sarah Palin Sweetly Serves Cider At Farmers Market

Video shows footage of Gov Palin serving state troopers cider before herself.

Sarah Palin's motorcade followed Ohio Route 7 to Ohio Route 60 and then went back through downtown Marietta Sunday afternoon to get onto I-77.

Gov. Palin spent about 15 minutes meeting local residents at L.E. Huck & Sons Farm Market off Ohio Route 60.

Wild Thing's comment...........

This was on Sunday the 12th, I had read the article but they finally put it on a video so I could show you.

Footage like this is TORTURE to Sarah-haters!!! It is so genuine, sincere and inspirational. No amount of spinning can make Sarah look bad and any attempt by her critics to do so will just reflect negatively on them. Keep on smiling Sarah!!!

Obvious the DNC Does Not Believe in Vetting Their Presidential Candidate Obama

Obama might say about this photo......"That's not the me I knew"

Obama website lies about ACORN ties

Campaign tries to distance senator from group convicted of voter fraud

wnd ...for complete article

By Aaron Klein

Sen. Barack Obama's campaign is misleading the public regarding the presidential candidate's ties to a radical leftist organization that has admitted to major financial improprieties and has been convicted in numerous, massive voter fraud scandals.

Sen. John McCain’s presidential campaign Friday stepped up its efforts to draw attention to Obama's alleged relationship with ACORN, or the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, holding a conference call in which McCain spokesman Rick Davis accused Obama of making "very inconsistent remarks about what his relationship with this organization is."

In response to the increased focus on ACORN, the Obama campaign last week claimed on its "Fight the Smears" website the presidential candidate was "never an ACORN community organizer; ACORN never hired Obama as a trainer, organizer, or any type of employee; ACORN was not part of Project Vote, the successful voter registration drive Barack ran in 1992."

But these blanket statements are false and misleading.

In 1992, Obama was director of Project Vote in Chicago, which helped register 150,000 voters on the city's South Side. Obama's successful work was credited in multiple media reports with helping to elect Democratic Senator Carol Moseley Braun.

Obama's campaign claims ACORN was "not part of" Project Vote, but the organization's incorporation papers, obtained by WND, show Project Vote is a trademark name whose parent company is registered at the same New Orleans address in which ACORN and multiple ACORN affiliates are housed.

Obama himself previously connected Project Vote to ACORN.

"I've been fighting alongside ACORN on issues you care about my entire career. Even before I was an elected official, when I ran Project Vote voter registration drives in Illinois, ACORN was smack dab in the middle of it, and we appreciate your work," Obama was quoted on his own campaign website as saying at an ACORN meeting, according to a post by official Obama website blogger Sam Graham-Felsen.

In a misleading statement, Obama's site claims "ACORN never hired Obama as a trainer, organizer, or any type of employee," but it fails to mention Obama was an unpaid ACORN trainer, as WND first reported in August.

Obama has deep ties to ACORN, including with Ayers

Although Obama has been downplaying his relationship with ACORN, the presidential candidate has deep-seated ties to the radical group.

ACORN is very active in Obama's native Chicago, where in 1997, some 200 members attempted to storm a City Hall meeting, resulting in six members being arrested, including Madeleine Talbot, ACORN's Chicago director.

In the early 1990's Talbot invited Obama to help train ACORN activists.

Obama and other Chicago attorneys won a 1995 suit on behalf of ACORN, forcing the state of Illinois to implement the federal "motor-voter" bill.

While Obama served on the board of the Woods Fund, a Chicago nonprofit, it channeled millions of dollars to ACORN and affiliated groups.

Obama actively sought and received the endorsement by ACORN for his local campaigns.

In the Social Policy Journal, Toni Foulkes, a Chicago ACORN leader, documents what he terms Obama's "long service" with ACORN, which he said led many of the organization's members to help in voter campaigns for Obama's early Chicago campaigns.

Foulkes said Obama and ACORN were "old friends."

ACORN endorsed Obama's presidential campaign, an endorsement touted on Obama's official website.

"What it came down to was that Senator Obama is the candidate who best understands and can affect change on the issues ACORN cares about like stopping foreclosures, enacting fair and comprehensive immigration reform, and building stronger and safer communities across America," said ACORN's Maude Hurd of the group's Obama endorsement.

Campaign pays ACORN affiliate

WND reported in August Obama's campaign paid more than $800,000 in services to Citizen Services Inc. (CSI), a nonprofit organization that is an offshoot of ACORN.

'ACORN may skew PA vote,' election integrity in doubt across country

Last Friday former state Supreme Court Justice Sandra Newman, a Republican, said at a news conference she has no confidence in the integrity of the electoral process in Pennsylvania as a result of what she termed the extensive voter registration effort by ACORN.

Group promoting Obama has history of major voter fraud

Intrusive, radical protest tactics

ACORN protests have turned violent, at times as soon as the rallies began. Some protests disrupted Federal Reserve hearings and busted into closed city council meetings.

Wild Thing's comment...........

The problem here is so fundamental: The founding fathers gave us a way to overthrow the government non-violently - by the vote. ACORN has apparently been undermining that basic ability, and that undermines the nation.

....Thank you Mark for sending this to me.

It's not just ACORN It's Obama Tactics and His Campaign As Well!

Hillary Clinton's campaign alleged election fraud and voter intimidation by Obama's campaign. It's not just ACORN!

Clinton campaign's letter to the Nevada State Democratic Party. Here is the original, in .pdf format.

RYAN, PHILLIPS, UTRECHT 5. MACKINNON ATTORNEYS AT LAW ’ Nonlawyer Partner 1133 Connecticut Avenue, N.W. Suite 300 Washington, D.C. 20036 (202) 293-1177 Facsimile (202) 293-3411
January 23, 2008 Jill Derby, Chair Nevada State Democratic Party 1210 South Valley View Road Suite 114 Las Vegas, NV 89102

Dear Chair Derby: I write on behalf of Hillary Clinton for President (”the Committee”) in regard to the January 19, 2008 Nevada Democ-ratic Caucus. The Committee is aware of a letter addressed to you today from the Obama for America campaign requesting an inquiry into the conduct of the caucuses. The Committee shares the Obama campaign’s concern that full participation in the democratic process may have been compromised by the substantial number of irregularities occurring at the caucuses, and we fully support a complete inquiry by the Nevada State Democratic Party (the ”Party”) into all caucus improprieties.

This letter is not intended as a response to the Obama campaign’s letter. However, in the interest of a complete record, and in contrast to the alleged minor procedural problems noted by the Obama campaign, the Committee wishes to bring to your attention information we have received evidencing a premeditated and predesigned plan by the Obama campaign to engage in systematic corruption of the Party’s caucus procedures. Compounding this blatant distortion of the caucus rules was an egregious effort by the Obama campaign to manipulate the voter registration process in its own favor, thereby disenfranchising countless voters. Finally, the Committee has received a vast number of reliable reports of voter suppression and intimidation by the Obama campaign or its allies.

The Committee had 30 phone lines on Saturday to receive calls in its Las Vegas offices. These lines rang continuously from early morning until well after the caucuses concluded with reports from people who were victimized and who observed irregularities. The phone lines were so over-whelmed that many callers resorted to calling individual Committee staff cell phones to report that they could not get through. The Committee also received many similar calls at its national headquarters.

The Committee is confident that any investigation into the conduct of the caucuses will be thorough, fair and in the interest of insuring that future Party caucuses will be as open and democratic as possible.

Systematic Corruption of the Party’s Caucus Procedures The Committee received substantially similar reports of improprieties of such a number as to leave no conclusion but that the Obama campaign and its allies and supporters engaged in a planned effort to subvert the Party’s caucus procedures to its advantage. For example:

þ Preference cards were premarked for Obama.

þ Clinton supporters were denied preference cards on the basis that none were left, while Obama supporters at the same caucus sites were given preference cards.

þ Caucus chairs obviously supporting Obama: o Deliberately miscounted votes to favor Senator Obama. o Deliberately counted unregistered persons as Obama votes. o Deliberately counted young children as Obama votes. o Refused to accept preference cards from Clinton supporters who were at the caucus site by noon on the ground that the cards were not filled out fast enough. o Told Clinton supporters to leave prior to electing delegates.

þ Clinton supporters who arrived late were turned away from the caucus, while late Obama supporters were admitted to the caucus.

Manipulation of the Voter Registration Process Numerous reports received by the Committee demonstrate a concerted effort on the part of the Obama campaign and its supporters to prevent eligible voters supporting a candidate other than Senator Obama from caucusing. The Obama supporters complained of were acting in positions of authority at the caucus sites. Some of these reports are as follows:

þ Obama supporters wrongly informed Clinton supporters that they were not allowed to participate in the caucus if their names were not on the voter rolls. However, Obama supporters whose names did not appear on the voter rolls were permitted to register at the caucus site.

þ Obama supporters falsely informed Clinton supporters that no registration forms were available for them to register to vote at the caucus site.

þ Obama supporters wrongly told Clinton supporters who were attempting to caucus at the wrong precinct that they could not caucus at that site, while simultaneously permitting Obama supporters at the wrong precinct to participate.

þ Obama supporters were allowed to move to the front of the registration and sign-in line.

Voter Suppression and Intimidation The Committee received a substantial number of disturbing reports from voters that they had been subject to harassment, intimidation or efforts to prevent them from voting. Some of the most egregious of these complaints are described below:

þ Voters at at-large caucus sites were informed that those sites were for Obama supporters only.

þ Clinton supporters at at-large caucus sites were told that their managers would be watching them while they caucused.

þ Workers were informed that their supervisors kept lists of Clinton and Obama supporters, and were told that they could not caucus unless their name was on the list of Obama supporters.

þ Many Clinton supporters were threatened with employment termination or other discipline if they caucused for Senator Clinton.

þ Workers were required to sign a pledge card to support Obama if they wanted time off to participate in the caucus. þ Workers at one casino were offered a lavish lunch and permitted to attend and register to vote only if they agree to support Obama.

The complaints summarized above represent only a small sample of the complaints received by the Committee. With respect to each of these complaints and many more, the Committee has the names and phone numbers of those reporting these incidents and the specific precinct numbers where the incidents occurred. Upon request the Committee will share these with the Party with appropriate safeguards to protect these individuals from reprisal. On the whole, these reports show a troubling effort by the Obama campaign and its allies and supporters to advance their own campaign at the expense of the right of all Nevada Democrats to participate in the democratic process in a free, fair and open manner.

Senator Clinton and the Committee are wholly committed to ensuring that every eligible voter has his or her vote cast and counted. There is no place in the American electoral process for the types of voter suppression, intimidation and harassment systematically engaged in by the Obama campaign, its allies and supporters.

Sincerely, /v Lyn Utrecht Counsel Hillary Clinton for President

Wild Thing's comment........

This is all important because it shows the kind of campaign Barack Hussein Obama is running, how the DNC so far has done nothing about this kind of behavior and apparently back it up. And now it is not Hillary running against Obama but McCain/Palin and what is in store for our voting.

We already know how Obama tells bold face liles, how he has no shame in his associations and the more we learn about him he is a Chicago thug and runs his campaign accordingly.

McCain/Palin Rally in Virginia Beach, VA. and Richmond, VA. and N.C.

Hank Williams Jr. may have a new number one fan: Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin.

The country star, who is performing at a campaign event in Virginia for Palin and Sen. John McCain on Monday, got a call on his cell phone from Palin, according to

"Huge fan," Palin said, admitting that she owns all of Williams's albums. The two also bonded over one of their favorite shared pastimes, moose hunting.

"I hunt moose," Palin told him.

"I hunt moose, too," Williams said. "I have a house in Montana."

The Alaska governor promised to hang out with Williams and go moose hunting together after Election Day.

The rally with Sarah Palin was moved from the Arthur Ashe Center, which holds 6,000 to the racetrack complex in Richmond due to the tickets were over 28,000 and the crowd reached 30,000 according to the Washington Post which means it might have been even larger since as we all know the media keeps the number down when reporting the Republican ticket.

Hank Williams Jr arrived at rally with Sarah.

Hank Williams Jr is there to sing the national anthem, before introducing the Republican presidential candidate, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., and his running mate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin Monday, Oct. 13, 2008, during a campaign rally in Virginia Beach Va., held at the Virginia Beach Convention Center.

Sarah’s singing the Anthem along with the crowd...she’s so REAL!

Then he sings another song.......

Hank Williams Jr. song, "McCain-Palin Tradition"

The song rips Dems and summarizes Fannie and Freddie, Obama’s ties to radicals, etc. Should be played as a campaign ad.

The above video has been getting a lot of hits and sometimes does not work. Below is an extra one from another source just in case.

Hank Williams, Jr. ....""Are you ready for some Sarah!" ( he sang it again at the close of the rally)


“We are looking to the future because thats where you find the solutions” - Sarah Palin

Sarah recognizes crowd yelling “ACORN” and adds.............“And there is ANGER about Voter fraud”.........Sarah gets loud applause.
She is a fantastic communicator.

Leading the crowd in “Drill, Baby, Drill!” chant.

Talking up nuclear and coal for energy.

Chiding Biden for saying “There is no clean coal.”

Whether Biden approves or not, she and John McCain will develop clean coal technology, and drill safely for oil resources offshore.

“We will drill, and we will drill now!”

Crowd wild for her.

Now talking about children with special needs.

LOL , She should keep talking. The stock Market is above 9000 now nearing 9100. Update: went over 9100.

Sarah taking about having learned things when faced with having a special needs child.

Every child has something to give the world.

“There is the world’s standards of perfection. Then there are God’s.” Crowd cheers.

Obviously, Sarah is way above Obama's "paygrade. "

“Trig is precios because he is vulnerable...we can learn from Trig...when we hold Trig we don’t feel scared we feel blessed...”

Invoking Ronald Reagan and the forward march of freedom in the world.

Defends the Second Amendment by name. Crowd cheers!

“We believe in the promise of America.”

“America is not something to apologize for. America is not the problem. America is the solution.”


MCCain is here in Wilmington NC

McCain had 16,000 at his speech (according to Fox)

Republican presidential candidate, Sen. John McCain, second from left, flanked by his wife, Cindy McCain, left, his vice presidential running mate, Alaska Gov.

Imagining a President Obama ~ It’s Like a B Movie Horror Flick

Imagining a President Obama

By Salena Zito


Most Americans wake every morning to news that Barack Obama will win next month's presidential election. Strategists even say the word "landslide" aloud.

Every poll shows it, every pundit echoes it, and every analyst predicts it -- therefore it must be true, right?

Let's take this political axiom to some of those who do the predicting, to project what America will look like under an Obama administration, governing with a Democrat congressional majority led by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

Beckel says that, in government and politics, the policy pendulum always swings back and forth and, particularly in this economic crisis, "people will want -- and Obama will deliver -- more government involvement."

"They feel more comfortable with that than they do with a bunch of people on Wall Street," he says.

Beckel sees an Obama appointment of Hillary Clinton to the Supreme Court bench as soon as an opening occurs, and he dismisses the massive move toward industry regulations that some people predict.

One insider, who refuses to predict on the record, says privately that Obama will quickly announce his appointments to the Cabinet positions of state, defense, treasury and attorney general. He believes Obama's Cabinet is shaping up to look like this: retiring U.S. Sen. Chuck Hagel, R-Neb., as defense secretary; Massachusetts Democrat Gov. Deval Patrick as attorney general; New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, a political independent, at treasury; Susan Rice as national security adviser; Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., as secretary of state.

Mark Siegel, a former Democratic National Committee executive director, says Obama will want to make it immediately clear to America and to the world that "there's a new sheriff in town." He expects Obama to make that point dramatically by issuing several executive orders.

Siegel says you will see Obama immediately suspend all pending judicial nominations, close Guantanamo, then reassure the world that he will never permit torture.

Also look for a doubling of the Peace Corps, a brand-new Volunteer Youth Network, an expansion of U.S. assistance for "Teach for America," and a reduction of interest rates on student loans, Siegel predicts.

What a difference four short years makes, says Brian Darling, a congressional analyst for The Heritage Foundation.

Darling predicts Obama's tax policy will have an immediate effect on small businesses and result in many individuals seeing their marginal tax rate double. Any Supreme Court retirements would dramatically change the direction of American jurisprudence. And he warns that the push for new regulations is the wrong reaction to problems on Wall Street.

"We need more capitalism, not less. Telecommunications has thrived without regulations, and our economy should make sure that politicians in Washington do not try to regulate and tax our way out of the current economic downturn."

University of Arkansas political scientist Bob Maranto says the Illinois senator is a pragmatist tactically: "Obama knows that if you try to impose things like racial quotas and gay marriage, that would not be a vote-winner. But if you appoint federal judges who impose those policies, you can evade responsibility."

Maranto suspects those are the judges Obama would appoint.

He warns that Obama is no fool. "Socialism is dead, and Barack Obama knows it," he explains. "He would, however, favor a very strong government hand in regulating the economy, both because he believes that government knows best and because that means more subsidies and jobs to hand out to supporters, and more votes and PAC contributions to get in return."

All four men agree that if Obama becomes president with Congress sharing his beliefs, then "change" is definite -- but not infinite.

The degree of success or enforcement, they say, depends on how far the press and the next midterm election will allow the new president and Congress to go.

Wild Thing's comment..........

I really believe Obama Presidency will be a nightmare we need to fight happening. It would hit blogs and conservative forums as some of it's first targets imo and also conservative talk shows. Welcome to Socialism and communisim Obama style.

Surprise Pumpkin Picker Piper Palin and Sarah Palin At The Way Fruit Farm

Palin mingles with crowd in unexpected visit to Way Fruit Farm

Centre Daily Times

The Way Fruit Farm Fall Festival had a surprise pumpkin picker Saturday: Sarah Palin.


The Way Fruit Farm Fall Festival had a surprise pumpkin picker Saturday: Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin.

Palin made the unannounced visit with her youngest daughter, Piper, on her way from a rally in Johnstown to the University Park Airport, where her plane was taking off for Philadelphia.

The visit was kept secret until seconds before John McCain’s “Straight Talk Express” bus rolled up and caught festivalgoers completely off guard.

“I saw the bus come up, took a picture of it,” said State College resident Ty Arbutiski, who had come with his wife and kids to the festival. “The kids were still out petting the bunnies. I said, ‘I’m going to go see if they’re stopping,’ ran up here and sure enough they did stop.”
“I yelled to her, ‘She rocks,’ she waved to me and said ‘Thank you,’ and came over and shook my hand. So I’m a happy guy. I may never wash it again.”

Even Way Fruit Farm’s owner, Brooks Way, and the press had little advance notice.

Sarah and Piper Palin spent a few minutes picking pumpkins with Bellefonte Elementary School student Max Theuer, who Palin grabbed from the crowd while greeting people.

“I said, ‘OK, I’ll help,’ ” Max, 9, said. “I just pointed to a pumpkin.”
Max picked out a plump, round pumpkin that Piper apparently wasn’t satisfied with. After Piper whispered to her mother, Palin said: “An even bigger one? Piper!”

They ended up with two pumpkins, one for Piper and one for Max, before Palin greeted some in the crowd and then left.

“She asked, ‘Would you like a pumpkin?’ ” Max said, who added that he “was kind of excited” about the experience.
“We were floored that she was so down to earth,” said Mike Theuer, Max’s father. “She paid literally out of her pocket.”

Palin spent about 15 minutes at the festival before leaving for the airport. She was scheduled to drop the puck Saturday night at the Philadelphia Flyers game.

“I introduced her to my mom and dad,” Brooks Way said. “They are fourth generation farmers. I’m fifth. My daughter Megan is sixth and my grandchildren Emma and Katie are seventh. She was impressed with that.”

Brooks Way said he doesn’t like to be political because that alienates him from 50 percent of people, and didn’t say if he was a McCain-Palin supporter.

“I am a Republican, yes,” he said. “I have not decided. But it’s changing today. Have you noticed, there’s no signs for either candidate. It will stay that way.”

The fall festival takes place every year on the second and third Saturdays of October. And on this beautiful sunny fall day, it drew hundreds of people.

“Go get her, governor!” screamed a man in the crowd. “Hey,” Palin said, then waved. “Thank you.”

One mother of five tracked down an agent to tell him that she has a son with Down syndrome, as does Palin.

Palin spent a few seconds with them and others who snapped pictures and shook her hand.

She didn’t field any questions from the press and didn’t make any public comment. This was just a quick, drop-in visit, staff said.

Local Republicans had been pushing for Palin to make an appearance in Centre County on Saturday.

Friday afternoon, Fox Hill Road leading up to the University Park Airport was lined with “McCain-Palin” yard signs, and one local Republican committee insider said it was unclear how they got there, stirring the rumors of a surprise Palin visit.

“We saw her and were like, ‘Oh my gosh, we love her!’ ” said Brenda Webb, who had arrived at the festival just before Palin.
“We’ve been watching her in the debates and everything,” Webb said.
Her daughter, Moriah, and Moriah’s friend, Ashley Reed, got to see in person the woman they’ve been so excited to watch on television, Webb said. “It’s so exciting for them. They’ve been really interested, so it was great for them to actually meet her.”

Sarah is such a great mom and so many of the expressions of Piper you can see Sarah in her. They are so much alike it is just adorable.

Barack Hussein Obama Saying Acorn and Friends To Shapre His Pres. Agenda!

Obama at ACORN meeting: "We are going to be calling all of you in to shape the agenda of my presidency."

And this one too.......

Obama: "An ACORN Doesn't Fall Far From the Tree"

McCain/Palin new ad " ACORN"

McCain/Palin Campaign Memo on ACORN

TO: Interested Parties
RE: Barack Obama & ACORN

DATE: October 10, 2008

McCain Palin website

Today, the McCain campaign outlined the intimate and longstanding relationship between Barack Obama and the Association of Community Organizers for Reform Now (ACORN). Given ACORN’s recent efforts to engage in voter fraud and to disrupt our political system, Obama’s affiliation with this group raises serious questions about his judgment and ability to lead this nation.

As of today, ACORN is under investigation for fraudulent activities in at least 11 key battleground states and accused of wrongdoing in many others. According to election officials across the country, about 50% of ACORN’s voter registrations are fictitious. This week alone, ACORN offices in Nevada were raided by state officials – after the starting lineup of the Dallas Cowboys appeared registered to vote in Las Vegas – and in Connecticut, a seven-year-old child registered to vote as a 27-year-old.

Below is a brief summary of Obama’s connection to the organization. A diagram of connections outlining Obama’s many ties to ACORN can be found here: .

The relationship between Barack Obama and ACORN dates back to the early 1990s, well before the start of his political career. In 1992, Obama directed Project Vote – an arm of ACORN that also encouraged voter registration. Around the same time, Obama began teaching classes for “Future Leaders Identified by ACORN,” and according to an op-ed at the time, Obama continued his community organizing work largely through these classes.

Obama soon moved on from his role as a community organizer and became a trial attorney for ACORN. In 1995, Obama represented ACORN in a lawsuit against the state of Illinois for its supposed failure to implement a federal law designed to make voter registration easier, and thus increasing the likelihood of voter fraud. Obama also joined two well-known boards with strong ties to ACORN – the Woods Fund and the Joyce Foundation. Under Obama’s watch, the Chicago ACORN branch received thousands of dollars in grants from both organizations.

During this year’s Democrat primaries, Obama’s campaign paid $832,000 to Citizens Services, an ACORN-affiliated organization, for get-out-the-vote efforts. Sensing the need to distance itself from the controversial organization, however, Obama’s Federal Election Commission report mischaracterized this work as “staging and lighting.”

Given his longstanding ties to the organization, it is not surprising that Obama accepted the endorsement of ACORN in 2008. In a press release touting the endorsement on his official campaign website, Obama says: “I’ve been fighting alongside ACORN on issues that you care about my entire career.”

Obama’s subsequent failure to disclose the true nature of his relationship with ACORN, however, is very surprising and deeply troubling. His campaign website, which on one page features the aforementioned quote, claims on another page that Obama has no connection to ACORN. This direct contradiction illustrates Obama’s willingness to distort the true facts and seriously calls his judgment into question.

We are hopeful that three actions come from today’s discussion. First, Barack Obama has to be forthright about his relationship with ACORN. Secondly, given their willingness to compromise the voting process in key battleground states across the country, a thorough investigation of ACORN must be conducted before Election Day. Finally, federal funding of ACORN must cease immediately until the full examination has been completed. American taxpayers should not be funding an organization mired in potentially illegal activities.


Wild Thing's comment............

Pure communist garbage Obama is doing. ACORN is a really SCARY bunch of loons! Obama is trying to distance himself from ACORN but this puts the bullseye on Obama.

“According to election officials across the country, about 50% of ACORN’s voter registrations are fictitious.”


First, Barack Obama has to be forthright about his relationship with ACORN. Secondly, given their willingness to compromise the voting process in key battleground states across the country, a thorough investigation of ACORN must be conducted before Election Day. Finally, federal funding of ACORN must cease immediately until the full examination has been completed.

Well done, Senator McCain.

Why is it that DEAD people always vote for Dems? ~ Let's Ask Obama!!

Obama = ACORN

Ballots cast in Houston using dead voters’ names

Texas Watchdog

Thousands on the rolls after death, creating potential for fraud

Woodwick Street was quiet — with a few residents working in their yards and adding to post-storm brush piles at the curb — when Texas Watchdog visited on a recent Saturday to try to find Harris County voter Linda K. Hill.

“I’m sorry, but she passed on two years ago,” said a mustached man wearing a Dallas Cowboys baseball cap and driving a motorized chair down the street. He was Linda Hill’s husband, Henderson Hill Jr.

Linda Kay Hill, a homemaker and Louisiana native, died Aug. 2, 2006, of a heart attack, her husband recalled, and is buried at Houston Memorial Gardens in Pearland. But Harris County voter records indicate she –- or someone using her identity –- cast a ballot in the November election that year. Linda Hill of Woodwick Street voted in person on Election Day, records show.

She is among the more than 4,000 people whose names are listed both on Harris County’s voter rolls and also in a federal database of death records, a Texas Watchdog analysis has found.

And dozens of those people, like Linda Hill, have apparently cast ballots from beyond the grave, records since 2004 show. One expert says the number of deceased names used to cast ballots may be higher than what Texas Watchdog’s analysis found.

Instances of dead voters’ names being used to cast ballots were most frequent in three elections, the November 2004 general election, the November 2006 general election and the March 2008 Democratic primary, the analysis found.

Less than a month away from an election to decide the highest office in the land, some advocates worry that such errors in the voter records open the door for fraud, compromise the integrity of results and lessen voter confidence in the system.

The findings come as the group ACORN, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, has faced scrutiny in multiple states for allegedly improper voter registrations — including players for the Dallas Cowboys, not in the Lone Star State, but in Nevada. The group’s Nevada offices were raided by state officials earlier this week.

That’s as officials in at least six states may have improperly removed tens of thousands of voters from the rolls or prevented them from registering, the New York Times reported Wednesday.

“This is subverting the ballot,” said John Fund, a Wall Street Journal columnist and author of Stealing Elections: How Voter Fraud Threatens Our Democracy. “Just like you counterfeit dollars, we take it seriously, if you counterfeit votes we should take it equally seriously, and we should punish people seriously for trying to subvert democracy.”

And 4,000 voters isn’t chump change, even though the figure is a tiny fraction of Harris County’s 1.9 million registered voters.

And here is another one there are thousands of these stories.........................


NY Post ...for complete story.

O'jahnae Smith is ready and registered to vote this November.

There's only one problem: She's 7 years old.

The Connecticut girl is 11 years too young - and nobody in her family knows how she ended up on a voter registration form submitted by ACORN, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now.

"She's registered to vote?" said a surprised Jerome Smith, O'jahnae's teenage brother. "She's too young to vote."

But that didn't stop someone from forging the child's signature on a voter registration card and giving her a fake birth date that upped her age to 27. The family told The Post a drug-addicted relative may have given the bogus card to ACORN.

Wild Thing's comment.........

It must be end times, the dead are arising from their graves and voting....Zombies like Obama's health care plan.

I am so sick of all this voter fraud stuff. People are guilty and should be punished.

Democrats are sure like terrorists, they destroy everything they are a part of.

Its called FRAUD. It ILLEGAL and this criminal group , ACORN, is doing it and has been doing it without much problem throughtout the United States on behalf of Obama for months now.

Look at this .............

ABC Censors Pro-Life Ad Exposing Barack Obama's Pro-Abortion Record

ABC Censors Pro-Life Ad Exposing Barack Obama's Pro-Abortion Record

by Steven Ertelt Editor
October 10, 2008

The ABC television network is coming under fire from a leading pro-life group for censoring a political radio ad that criticizes Barack Obama's pro-abortion voting record. National Right to Life hoped to run the ad during the nationally syndicated Sean Hannity radio program.

The ad asks Obama when he will apologize for calling the group "liars" for pointing out how he misrepresented his votes in the Illinois legislature against bills that would require medical care for babies who survive failed abortions.

Two nonpartisan groups, and have verified NRLC's claims as true -- leading the pro-life group to produce the ad.

On Friday, NRLC received notice from ABC Radio Network that it would not air the ad during Hannity's radio program.

In an email to National Right to Life, ABC Radio Network executives claimed the ad, "while supporting aspects of a Pro-Life position, weighs more heavily toward electioneering."

However, the ad is paid for by the NRLC political action committee, which is allowed to do "electioneering" under federal law.

"ABC's rejection smacks of being a politically motivated gag order," NRLC communications director Derrick Jones told "It seems that the pro-Obama leanings of the mainstream media have overflowed into their sales departments as well. To reject a political action committee's ad because they think it is too political, borders on the absurd."

Jones pointed out that, four years ago, the group ran similar radio ads on the ABC network without any censorship from its executives.

"Four years ago, NRL PAC ran electioneering ads supporting George W. Bush. ABC's lame excuse this year fails to hide their true motivation of helping Barack Obama conceal his extreme pro-abortion position from the American public," Jones added.

Douglas Johnson, the legislative director for the group, points to a recent analysis showing the mainstream media have barely touched Barack Obama's abortion position. He calls the ABC rejection of the ad another part of the media campaign for him.

"The ABC gag rule is part of a broader pattern of behavior in which the mainstream news media filter out or distort the extremes of Obama's pro-abortion record," he told
He accused the media of not wanting to discuss "his actions to block legislation to protect infants born alive following abortions in Illinois, his commitment to enact the so-called 'Freedom of Choice Act,' which would make partial-birth abortion legal again and nullify all parental notification laws, and his support for requiring taxpayer funding of abortion."

At issue is the bill that Obama opposed that would provide medical care for newborn infants who survive abortions.

Obama says he voted against the bill because it didn't mirror a national version that had language making it neutral on Roe v. Wade -- even though Obama voted for language in committee to make the state legislation conform.

The National Right to Life Committee released documents exposing Obama's misrepresentation and the pro-abortion presidential candidate later accused the group of "lying" in a terse interview.

"We find that, as the NRLC said in a recent statement, Obama voted in committee against the 2003 state bill that was nearly identical to the federal act he says he would have supported," FactCheck indicated after reviewing the documents.

ABC - The All-Barack Channel

ABC is making it clear that they have no intention of adhering to the First Amendment of the Constitution. I would feel no remorse an accusing them of thuggery and promotion of communist principles.

And there is also the part Barack Obama worked so hard to protect, the induced labor which forces an alive preemie to be born too soon to survive without heroic medical attention. That wasn’t a bad thing, to Barack Obama.

And Obama sycophants don’t care!

Obama Trying to Be Dictator Of McCain/Palin Rallies As Obama Complains That Iowa Rally Had "partisan prayer"

Obama says John McCain rally in Iowa marked by partisan prayer

LA Times

Rev. Arnold Conrad, in delivering an invocation at a rally today for John McCain in Davenport, Iowa, apparently didn’t get the word from the candidate about elevating the tone at such gatherings.

Conrad, who appeared before the crowd before McCain had arrived, offered a prayer that seemed to urge divine intervention to prevent Barack Obama from winning the presidential election — and cast the outcome as a referendum on differing religions.

The Times’ Maeve Reston was at the event, and she passed along the key passage from Conrad’s words:

"I would also pray Lord that your reputation is involved in all that happens between now and November, because there are millions of people around this world praying to their God — whether it’s Hindu, Buddha, Allah — that his [McCain’s] opponent wins for a variety of reasons.

And Lord I pray that you would guard your own reputation, because they’re going to think that their god is bigger than you, if that happens. So I pray that you would step forward and honor your own name in all that happens between now and Election Day.
Oh Lord, we just commit this time to you, move among us, make your presence very well felt as we are gathered here today in Jesus’s name I pray. "

The crowd greeted the prayer with applause.

Wild Thing's comment..........

The latest complaint by Obama’s camp against the McCain campaign is that we are waging “partisan” prayer. How horrible of our side to do such a prayer!!!!!!!!

I would not have made the same prayer as this Rev. Conrad with the Allah bit in there etc. hahaha But by golly if it offends Obama to find out about a prayer at the rally then so be it , it works for me. LOL

Conrad, who appeared before the crowd before McCain had arrived, offered a prayer that seemed to urge divine intervention to prevent Barack Obama from winning the presidential election...

I have been praying the same thing.

Why I thoguht Obama was supposed to be a Christian according to him, well there was that one time on This Week the Sunday morning show where he messed up OR was it the truth and he said he was a Muslim.

What in the heck is next, is Obama going to say we can't cheer at a rally, or better yet he probably wiill have no rallies allowed at all for his opponent McCain. Obama sure is trying to take control of the McCain/Palin campaign.

He better know if he , Obama wins, there is a traditional President Prayer breakfast and not the kind of place for a Rev. Wright either.

The article does not tell about this from the rally as well........

When McCain came to hug her ( Sarah Palin ) ... he immdiately shook my hand and following his moment with her, I shook his hand as he grabbed my hand, now for the second time, and I said, "God wants you to know that I'm praying for you, Sir!" He thanked me and kept smiling. I repeated that phrase to him five times. He grabbed my hands and looked right into my eyes and said, "I won't make it without prayer. Sir, Thank You for praying for me, and don't let one day go by that you don't pray for me. I need all the prayers that I can get. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!"

General Patton's Prayer!

Many know the story of General Patton’s prayer for better weather in order to more efficiently kill the Germans in the winter of 1944. Few know of his Christmas Greeting that was issued along with the prayer.

Contrary to popular belief, the prayer was not ordered to be written during the Battle of the Bulge. It was on the 14th of December that General Patton had the famous exchange with Chaplain O’Neill to write a prayer for good weather and to give a copy to each member of the Third Army. The Chaplain mentioned that it’s not a customary practice to pray for clear weather in order to kill fellow men.

Patton’s response was direct, “Chaplain, are you teaching me theology or are you the Chaplain of the Third Army? I want a prayer.”

After working out the logistics, each member of the Third Army (approximately 250,000 at the time) was issued a small card on the 22nd of December, 1944. By this time, the Battle of the Bulge was underway.

On one side of the card was the famous prayer:

Almighty and most merciful Father, we humbly beseech Thee, of Thy great goodness, to restrain these immoderate rains with which we have had to contend. Grant us fair weather for Battle. Graciously hearken to us as soldiers who call upon Thee that, armed with Thy power, we may advance from victory to victory, and crush the oppression and wickedness of our enemies and establish Thy justice among men and nations.
When Patton originally ordered the cards made, some of the General’s men convinced him to include a Christmas greeting for the troops. On the reverse side, the card had a personal message from the General:

To each officer and soldier in the Third United States Army, I wish a Merry Christmas. I have full confidence in your courage, devotion to duty, and skill in battle. May God’s blessing rest upon each of you on this Christmas Day.
G. S. Patton, Jr.
Lieutenant General

Gov. Palin Calls Out Obama On Abortion

Gov. Palin calls out Obama on Abortion

Sarah Palin thrilled a raucous crowd of supporters Saturday in Johnstown.

Her full speech:

“In this same spirit, as defenders of the culture of life, John McCain and I believe in the goodness and potential of every innocent life. I believe the truest measure of any society is how it treats those who are least able to defend and speak for themselves. And who is more vulnerable, or more innocent, than a child?

When I learned that my son Trig would have special needs, I had to prepare my heart for the challenges to come. At first I was scared, and Todd and I had to ask for strength and understanding. But I can tell you a few things I’ve learned already.

Yes, every innocent life matters. Everyone belongs in the circle of protection. Every child has something to contribute to the world, if we give them that chance. There are the world’s standards of perfection … and then there are God’s, and these are the final measure. Every child is beautiful before God, and dear to Him for their own sake.

As for our beautiful baby boy, for Todd and me, he is only more precious because he is vulnerable. In some ways, I think we stand to learn more from him than he does from us. When we hold Trig and care for him, we don’t feel scared anymore. We feel blessed.

It’s hard to think of many issues that could possibly be more important than who is protected in law and who isn’t – who is granted life and who is denied it. So when our opponent, Senator Obama, speaks about questions of life, I listen very carefully.

I listened when he defended his unconditional support for unlimited abortions. He said that a woman shouldn’t have to be – quote – “punished with a baby.” He said that right here in Johnstown –“punished with a baby” – and it’s about time we called him on it. The more I hear from Senator Obama, the more I understand why he is so vague and evasive on the subject. Americans need to see his record for what it is. It’s not negative or mean-spirited to talk to about his record. Whatever party you belong to, there are facts you need to know.

Senator Obama has voted against bills to end partial-birth abortion. In the Illinois Senate, a bipartisan majority passed legislation against that practice. Senator Obama opposed that bill. He voted against it in committee, and voted “present” on the Senate floor. In that legislature, “present” is how you vote when you’re against something, but don’t want to be held to account.

Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan, a Democrat, described partial-birth abortion as “too close to infanticide.” Barack Obama thinks it’s a constitutional right, but he is wrong.

Most troubling, as a state senator, Barack Obama wouldn’t even stand up for the rights of infants born alive during an abortion. These infants – often babies with special needs – are simply left to die.

In 2002, Congress unanimously passed a federal law to require medical care for those babies who survive an abortion. They’re living, breathing babies, but Senator Obama describes them as “pre-viable.” This merciful law was called the Born Alive Infants Protection Act. Illinois had a version of the same law. Obama voted against it.

Asked about this vote, Senator Obama assured a reporter that he’d have voted “yes” on that bill if it had contained language similar to the federal version of the Born Alive Act. There’s just one little problem with that story: the language of both the state and federal bills was identical.

In short, Senator Obama is a politician who has long since left behind even the middle ground on the issue of life. He has sided with those who won’t even protect a child born alive. And this exposes the emptiness of his promises to move beyond the “old politics.”

In both parties, Americans have many concerns to be weighed in the votes they cast on November fourth. In times like these, with wars and a financial crisis, it’s easy to forget even as deep and abiding a concern as the right to life. And it seems our opponent hopes that you will forget. Like so much else in his agenda, he hopes you won’t notice how radical his ideas and record are until it’s too late.

But let there be no misunderstanding about the stakes.

A vote for Barack Obama is a vote for activist courts that will continue to smother the open and democratic debate we need on this issue, at both the state and federal level. A vote for Barack Obama would give the ultimate power over the issue of life to a politician who has never once done anything to protect the unborn. As Senator Obama told Pastor Rick Warren, it’s above his pay grade.

For a candidate who talks so often about “hope,” he offers no hope at all in meeting this great challenge to the conscience of America. There is a growing consensus in our country that we can overcome narrow partisanship on this issue, and bring all the resources of a generous country to the aid of both women in need and the child waiting to be born. We need more of the compassion and idealism that our opponent’s own party, at its best, once stood for. We need the clarity and conviction of leaders like the late Governor Bob Casey.

He represented a humanity that speaks to all of us – no matter what our party, our background, our faith, or our gender. And no matter your position on this sensitive subject, I hope that spirit will guide you on Election Day. I ask you to vote for McCain-Palin on the November fourth, and help us to bring this country together in the rational discussion of compassion and life.”


Many ticket holders for the campaign rally were shut out when, just before Palin began to speak, local officials decided that the arena could not safely hold any more people.

It is not clear how many were turned away. One official estimated that as many as 2,000 Palin supporters, some of whom had waited for hours, never got inside.

“I’m sure there were a lot of upset people,” said Pat Lape, Johnstown Fire Department deputy chief. “But we have to do what’s safe for everybody.”

The Palin rally drew a huge response, with residents gobbling up thousands of free tickets in Cambria and surrounding counties. More than 4,700 tickets were distributed in Johnstown alone.

The War Memorial has seating for 4,000, with additional standing room on the floor.

Lape estimated that at least 5,000 witnessed the Palin speech.

Wild Thing's comment..........

The GOP had better realize they need larger venues for all Palin rallies. People really want to see and hear her. Consistently creating a situation where people are turned away is not good. People drive a long way, walk a long way from their cars and then stand for hours. I sure hope the GOP wises up asap.

B.Hussein Obama Has NO Intention Of Repudiating Lewis Comments!

McCain calls on Obama to repudiate 'shocking' Lewis comments

John McCain – who has often praised civil rights icon John Lewis – called a statement by the Georgia congressman Saturday comparing the outbursts at recent Republican rallies to the rhetoric of segregationist George Wallace “a brazen and baseless attack” that is “shocking and beyond the pale.”

Lewis issued his statement after several days of headline-grabbing anger directed at Democratic nominee Barack Obama by some attendees at McCain campaign rallies.

"What I am seeing reminds me too much of another destructive period in American history. Sen. McCain and Gov. [Sarah] Palin are sowing the seeds of hatred and division, and there is no need for this hostility in our political discourse," Lewis said in a statement.
"George Wallace never threw a bomb. He never fired a gun, but he created the climate and the conditions that encouraged vicious attacks against innocent Americans who were simply trying to exercise their constitutional rights. Because of this atmosphere of hate, four little girls were killed on Sunday morning when a church was bombed in Birmingham, Alabama," wrote the Democrat.

McCain has written about Lewis, praising his actions at Selma during the civil rights movement. The Republican nominee even said during a summer faith forum that Lewis was one of three men he would turn to for counsel as president.

But the Arizona senator blasted the congressman’s remarks, and called on Obama to repudiate them. "Congressman John Lewis' comments represent a character attack against Governor Sarah Palin and me that is shocking and beyond the pale,” he said in a Saturday afternoon statement released by his campaign.

Barack Hussein Obama's wanna be Dictator response:

Obama's campaign said he did not agree with the comparison made by Lewis — but did not repudiate the congressman's remarks.

“Senator Obama does not believe that John McCain or his policy criticism is in any way comparable to George Wallace or his segregationist policies," said Obama spokesman Bill Burton. "But John Lewis was right to condemn some of the hateful rhetoric that John McCain himself personally rebuked just last night, as well as the baseless and profoundly irresponsible charges from his own running mate that the Democratic nominee for President of the United States ‘pals around with terrorists.’
"As Barack Obama has said himself, the last thing we need from either party is the kind of angry, divisive rhetoric that tears us apart at a time of crisis when we desperately need to come together. That is the kind of campaign Senator Obama will continue to run in the weeks ahead."


Wild Thing's comment........

Good move for McCain. “I condemned the anger, now you condemn the Anti-American remarks” of course Hussein won’t. To the few and I do mean few that still might have a brain cell left they will see what an ass Obama is in his reaction to what McCain said.

But one thing I have to say and Nicholas and I have been talking about this. These people at the McCain/Palin rallies could very well be PLANTS FROM OBAMA'S CAMPAIGN. All it would have taken is an Obama plant or some yay-hoo shouting something offensive for the drive-bys to grab it and run with it.

Barack and Michelle Obama are racist extrodinaire and the omments like Rep. Lewis's are previews of what is to come if the Liberal Messiah is given title to the United States. This will be His country and he mold it in His image. All those who express "hateful" (i.e., dissenting) views will be "re-educated".

Obama put himself into this — first by stating that Ayers was “some guy who lives in my neighborhood”, then acknowledging that they “served on a board together”, then admitting that his first fundraiser was held at the house of Ayers (whose wife, Bernadine Dohrn, was on the FBI Most Wanted List). Now he’s claiming that Ayers has been “rehabilitated”, which is an odd phrase out of Soviet Russia. Rehabilitated just when? Was it on 9/11/2001 when the NY Times published an inteview with Ayers in which he said that he didn’t regret the bombs, only wished he’d done more? Was it after that when Ayers was photographed stomping on an American flag? Was it when Ayers expressed “remorse” - he NEVER has.

Just WHEN Barack Hussein Obama, was this terrorist “rehabilitated” and for what reason? Or don’t you want to talk about it and instead send out your minions (like John Lewis) to shriek “racism” at anyone who dares bring up the subject? If you can’t take the heat on this subject, Senator Obama, then you should never have gone in Ayers’ (and Dohrn’s) kitchen to raise money.

Alinsky's Rules for Radicals , Obama probably sleeps with this.

Here’s the difference between the parties on this topic:

The Democrats want to own the blacks;
The Republicans want to free the blacks.

It’s time to go nuclear on the race issue. You can’t dance around it. You have to say it straight out: Barack Obama has racist friends, has worked for racist organizations.

Mc Cain does not have to raise his voice. He simply must state firmly each fact of each scandal followed by each of Obama’s replies in each of the questionable areas (Those in the Hood both Chicago, Washington, and now Uganda)......and at the end state Obama is a Chicago Politician. His next line After a pregent pause “Acorn, Africa, Ayers.......We haven’t EVEN gotten to the ‘B’s yet!

Obama campaign officials said the campaign had secured a 30-minute block of time at 8 p.m. on CBS and NBC. CBS already was juggling its lineup to accommodate the Democratic presidential candidate

The campaign's move is unusual, but not unprecedented. Right before the 1992 presidential election, Independent candidate Ross Perot's aired a series of 30-minute campaign ads on prime-time TV. More than 16.5 million people tuned in to watch the Republican billionaire's broadcast, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Wild Thing's comment.........

I wonder if he will have his ugly fake Presidential seal with him when he speaks. Will he be sitting on a throne??
Or .....oh wait .......maybe he have it start with him looking at a fireplace, back turned to the camera as he stokes the fire with a poker. He turns around, with mild surprise, smiles, “Oh, hello! I’m Barack Obama, and it’s wonderful to speak to you tonight.”

There is a laughable thing about this. Barack Hussein Obama has been getting 100 backing and supporting and FREE ADVERTISING from MSNBC, CNN and the rest of the media since he bagn his campaign. And NOW HE WANTS TO PAY FOR IT? ROTFLMAO

Get ready for full-throated socialism in the USA, with Hussein as titular head of state.

Wow that's gonna be a hard half-hour: "Uh, uhhhh, uh, and and and, uhhhhhhhh..." OH wait Obama willl just read his speech. LOL I laugh every time I hear an idiot say he is a good speaker, he is a READER NOT A SPEAKER!

Obama already has his own channel (73) on Dish satellite that's a 24/7 campaign commercial for the Messiah!

This should be at the end of it as the credits roll.... the previous 30 minutes were brought to you by the following friends & neighbors, without who's support this presentation would not have been possible:

Workers Party of Korea
Hezbe Wahdat
The estate of Abd Al Aziz Al Saud
The Fifth Republic

Etc etc

Cant' Get Security Clearance For Gov.Job? Then Run For President

If you applied for a low or mid-level government job that required a mid-level security clearance, and in your background they found associations with terrorist William Ayres who bombed the Pentagon, with convicted felon Tony Rezko, the racist Reverend Wright and Louis Farrakhan... significant past drug use and a dual US-Kenyan citizenship... simply put, you would not be given that security clearance and you would not get the job.

On the other hand, there would be no problem for you to become President of the United States and be the boss of all of those folks with security clearances. Welcome to 'Theater of the absurd'; welcome to the United States 2008.

Barack Obama Couldn’t Pass a Routine Background Investigation

North Star Writers Group

by Gregory D.Lee

A while back, radio talk show host Michael Savage brought up the notion that Democratic presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama couldn’t pass a background investigation to become an FBI special agent.

He doesn’t know how right he is.

Sen. Barack Obama wouldn’t pass a routine government background investigation, not only to become an FBI agent, but a police officer as well. If he were a soldier, his background would preclude him from obtaining a security clearance. He wouldn’t even qualify to be a support person in a federal agency, such as secretary, for that matter.His past cocaine usage disqualifies him from being a DEA agent.

There’s another big problem Sen. Obama has: His association and business relationship with Weatherman Underground founder William Ayers, a former domestic terrorist who is still unrepentant for his bombings on U.S. landmarks and police stations. Usually, the company you keep reveals who you really are. Ayers felt then, as he does now, that America is the evil of the world and needs punishing for past and current bad acts. Not many federal agencies would want someone with that kind of chip on his shoulder working for it.

Also, Sen. Obama’s association with Tony Rezko and the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) come to mind. Rezko was just convicted of promoting corruption among Chicago politicians. He helped in the purchase of the senator’s home and was a campaign fundraiser for Obama. ACORN is being investigated by the feds for systematic voter registration fraud. Not good things.

Let’s not forget about Sen. Obama’s pastor and mentor for 20 years, America-hater Rev. Jeremiah Wright. When first questioned about his membership in Wright’s black theology church, Sen. Obama first denied knowing Rev. Wright harbored such negative feelings about the U.S., but after being further pressed, he dismissed the reverend’s conduct as like a “crazy uncle” who lived in the basement. He finally decided that he couldn’t politically afford to stay in the church, and dropped his membership.

To keep job applicants honest, many government agencies such as DEA, FBI, CIA and others require them to take a polygraph examination. Do you think Sen. Obama could pass a polygraph when he approves an ad that mocks Sen. John McCain for being unable to send e-mails without mentioning his poorly mended broken arms while in custody of the North Vietnamese which prevents him from manipulating the computer keyboard? He’s not computer illiterate, he’s handicapped!

Would you want a police officer in your city associating with such people? Not likely. But Obama supporters ignore these associations because they are desperate for a Democrat in the White House.

A federal government full-field background investigation would also look for prior inconsistencies, exaggerations and outright lies on an application for employment.

Wild Thing's comment............

Bill Clinton could not have passed these tests and look at all the horrible things he did as President.

When a person runs for President is used to be to my understand that background checks were done, but that was a long time ago. I guess they just don't care anymore. But this is something McCain/Palin campaign should make an ad about imo.

If Barack Hussein Obama wins he will go down in history as the most successful communist mole ever.

When Nicholas was in the Navy one of the jobs he had to do required him to be cleared for Top Secret Clearance work or however you put that. He said he was investigated all the way back to the womb. haaha They went all the way back to his chilidhood as a small child up through the years of his life to that day. He cleared with no problem but there is no way Obama could pass this in any way.

Obama''s Voters Witch Hunt Directed At Sarah Palin Ends

Alaska Governor Sarah Palin acted "within proper and lawful authority" in removing the state's public safety commissioner, the McCain-Palin Republican presidential ticket has said in response to a state report.

The McCain-Palin statement said, "Today's report shows that the Governor acted within her proper and lawful authority in the reassignment of Walt Monegan."

"This was a partisan led inquiry run by (Barack) Obama supporters and the Palins were completely justified in their concern regarding Trooper (Michael) Wooten given his violent and rogue behaviour," the campaign's statement said. Senator Obama is the Democratic presidential candidate.

"Lacking evidence to support the original Monegan allegation, the Legislative Council seriously overreached, making a tortured argument to find fault without basis in law or fact," the McCain-Palin statement said.

Wild Thing's comment..........

Screw you Obama and your people. Yes I blame Obama for this waste of time and harassment as much as his voters that saw fit to even go afetr Sarah Palin about this.

Sarah is vindicated there is no offense and we KNEW there wouldn't be. What a farce this was, what horrible people. Their deeply partisan opinion that she “abused” her power is a hollow death rattle for their “investigation.”

Posted by Wild Thing at 05:48 AM | Comments (9) California Tom McClintock Congressional Campaign Has One Very Nasty Opponent Known As Charlie Brown

Tom McClintock was born July 10, 1956, in White Plains, New York, is a California State Senator, representing the 19th district. On March 4, 2008, McClintock announced his candidacy as the Republican nominee for U.S. House of Representatives , California's 4th congressional district.

Tom McClintock’s Democrat opponent Charlie Brown has been running one of the most vile, hate filled campaign filled with lies and attacks of more lies about Tom McClintock.

Here is a sample of the kind of low life this Charlie Brown is and how he was involved with this and supported it.

Here is a TV ad highlighting Charlie Brown's participation at a anti-war rally, where he wore his uniform, in support of a homeowner who hung a soldier in effigy.

Sacramento Bee,
David Whitney,
Bee Washington Bureau

October 31, 2006

Anti-war activist Stephen Pearcy, who gained attention from his Sacramento home in February when he hung a human-shaped form dressed in a military uniform and adorned it with anti-war messages, charged that the retired Air Force officer is distancing himself from the protesters who had come to regard Brown as one of them.
“He’s back-pedaling,” said Pearcy in an interview. “He was initially holding himself out as an anti-war candidate, someone who vehemently opposed the war and supported immediate withdrawal. Now I am not so sure he supports that … This is an example of the kind of Democrats we’ve had who have acted basically in a spineless manner.”
Pearcy said the Roseville Democrat had appeared at his house in February when his dangling protest symbol was generating crowds of pro-war activists. Pearcy said Brown was dressed in his Air Force uniform to show his solidarity with him and his wife.”

Tom McClintock for Congress

He is a conservative Republican, strong on defense, strong stance against amnesty for illegal aliens, has worked hard for our Veterans, supported the Surge and supports our military big time.

State Sen. Tom McClintock's congressional campaign has criticized opponent Charlie Brown over his campaign contributions from embattled U.S. Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-New York) and noted that U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-San Francisco), who has also contributed to Brown's campaign, is facing questions about her own campaign fundraising.

This is one of the hearted battles in our country. The Dems never can run an honest campaign and so it is important to show support as much as possible for Republicans especially men like Tom McClintock that is well deserved.

Some quotes from those who have served our country about Tom McClintonck.

“Every dollar that the government wastes is a dollar less we can spend to help the families of the men and women overseas, and those wounded in combat. As a Marine who served in both Iraq and Afghanistan, we need Tom McClintock in Congress to fight the Democrats’ message of ‘cut and run.’”--Duncan D. Hunter, Captain United States Marine Corps (R)
“Tom McClintock has supported hundreds of bills over the years that support our military, our veterans and their families. Tom McClintock supported the surge and reinforcements for our troops. I proudly support McClintock for Congress.”--Rod Allen, reserve officer in the United States Marine Corp.
“Tom McClintock is a true patriot; he supported reinforcing our troops in when others, including his opponent, wanted to cut and run. He has a stellar record on veterans affair and is a co-author of Proposition 12 which will provide home loans to veterans.”--Tom Dwelle, retired Air Force Lt. Colonel

Yes on Proposition 8's campaign director Karen England issued the following statement regarding 4th congressional candidate Charlie Brown's opposition to Proposition 8:

"For California families, there is no other political issue this election as important as saving marriage. That's why it is imperative that voters support only candidates who respect traditional marriage. Charlie Brown's astonishing opposition to Proposition 8 reveals just how out of touch he is with citizens in the 4th congressional district-and the overwhelming majority of Californians and Americans.
After evading the issue for months, Mr. Brown finally declared that he does not support Proposition 8. This means that Mr. Brown supports four activist judges overturning Proposition 22, and imposing their social agenda on Californians.
"Not only am I working to pass Proposition 8, I'm a resident of the 4th congressional district. I know my fellow voters in this district-they're my neighbors and friends. In his opposition to Proposition 8, Mr. Brown sides with radical liberals who certainly don't represent the values of our community.
"Given his outright opposition to the most essential issue to families-the definition of marriage-Mr. Brown is not the candidate voters in support of marriage will ever support."

A 4th congressional district resident from Roseville, Karen England is the campaign director for Yes on Proposition 8. This voter-supported campaign committee is dedicated to educating voters about the issue of marriage. To learn more, visit

Also pictured is McBride's wife, Carissa (second from left). (Photo by Spc. Diego James Robles)

State Senator Steve Stivers announced in Nov. of 2007 his candidacy for Ohio's 15th Congressional District. In the Senate, Stivers has been an advocate for programs and initiatives that promote economic development and encourage job creation.

He was awarded a Bronze Star for his accomplishments as a battalion commander during Operation Iraqi Freedom. Senator Stivers returned to the Senate in December 2005. He has served in the military since 1985. He has held positions as Radio-Teletype Operator, Chemical Officer, Company Commander, Logistics Officer, Battalion Executive Officer and Battalion Commander.

He is currently a Lieutenant Colonel in the Ohio Army National Guard. He has more than 22 years of service and served the nation oversees for nearly a year in Operation Iraqi Freedom in Kuwait, Iraq, Qatar and Djibouti.

Steve Stivers for Congress

Steve Stivers opponent is Mary Jo Kilroy , she is a staunch Democratic Socialist communist somone and of course a big supporter as well of Barack Hussein Obama.

Mary Jo Kilroy stars in a socialist French documentary by Noel Burch, on his journey back to America to visit his militant, far left friends, of which Kilroy is one.

From The Hill

Kilroy has appeared in a documentary about radical socialism and led a discussion at a 1997 conference of the Center for Democratic Values, a think tank associated with the Democratic Socialists of America, about arguing for public schools.
Kilroy has been locked in a tense race with Republican Steve Stivers in Ohio's 15th Congressional District, where Republican incumbent Rep. Deborah Pryce is retiring.

I pray Steve Stivers wins by a landslide wouldn't that be awesome and kick this Kilroy back to kingdom come.

Wild Thing's comment.........

With only 29 days left until the election, every day is an important one not only for the Presidential campaign but also for all the other ones going on across our country. As you know I have posted various campaigns happening. William Russell vs. John Murtha and othes and this is another one I would like to tell you about.

What is shocking in the various campaigns is how similar they ALL are, because all the Democrats running against the Republicans are socialists, communists,anti-American, have your pick from all or any of those things. But they all are against what America has stood for and they all want to change it to a socialist, communist country.

The Democrats have NO shame and are backed by a media that has no shame as well as they have all become blantant in their push for our country to dive into the pits of socialism/communism.

We have got to fight back!! That is why when we saw the video the other day I posted of Americans yelling out how fed up they were at several of the McCain/Palin rallies it is huge. It was wonderful and it is a step in the right direction.

Men like Steve Stivers are our chance to fight back and keep America from being run over by the likes of this socialists Obama brained commie like Kilory.

God bless Steve Stivers in his run for Congress.

FEDS Checking Out Sheriff Scott For Saying " Barack HUSSEIN Obama " as Warm Up Speaker


Hands up! You're under arrest for saying 'Hussein Obama!'

Fort Myers, FL.

We have seen many changes in this great nation which have been brought about by left wing activists. As kids, we used to say the Pledge of Allegiance. Now, it's being attacked in the courts. We used to say a prayer in the morning before school or at football games. Socialists in America have deemed that "offensive" and the practice has all but disappeared. Christmas displays honoring the birth of Christ trigger convulsions by the Left, who say that we shouldn't make people feel "uncomfortable" with our manger scenes.

Now, we can't even say what we want to say in public because not only will the thought police be on patrol, but, using a recent event in Florida as an example, saying "Hussein Obama" in public might just get you a visit from the FBI. Just ask Florida's Lee County Sheriff Mike Scott who is under fire -- and investigation -- for referring to Obama at a campaign rally by his -- gasp -- full name. What is going on with America?

At a rally in Estero, Florida on Monday for Gov. Sarah Palin, one of the pre-rally speakers was Sheriff Scott. Now, anyone who has been to a political rally knows that the job of the warm-up speakers is to do exactly as the name implies: warm-up the audience. Whether the audience is cheering wildly or booing loudly, the pre-rally speakers are there to wake them up and get them going. So... according to ABC News, Sheriff Scott stepped to the podium and said, "On November 4, let's leave Barack Hussein Obama wondering what happened."

Oh, the shock of it all! Speaking someone's full legal name in public! When asked about the "incident," Sheriff Scott responded by saying:

"I absolutely, unequivocally don’t regret saying it,” Scott told the News-Press on Monday. “In order to be a speaker at this event, I had to give my full name — Michael Joseph Scott — to the Secret Service, even though I’m the sheriff of Lee County. So why would I apologize? Is there some kind of double standard here where I have to give my full name, but I can’t use his?”
“Unless he changed his name, my position hasn’t changed,” said Scott of Obama. “It seems very clear to me that people have one of three stances on this thing: There are those who dislike it, there are those who like it, and there are those who think it’s a whole big deal about nothing, which is where I stand.”

As noted in the Cape Coral Daily Breeze, the Palin campaign responded by issuing the following statement:

“We do not condone this inappropriate rhetoric which distracts from the real questions of judgment, character and experience that voters will base their decisions on this November.”

Fair enough. If Palin or anyone else wants to say the usage of Barack Hussein Obama is inappropriate, he or she has a right to do so. But Sheriff Scott also has a right to say what he wants to say without fear of reprisal by the government. However, according to a local Florida NBC affiliate, Sheriff Scott's remark has now earned him an investigation by the federal government.

The NBC station reports that officials with the U.S. Office of Special Counsel have started an investigation of the Sheriff under the question of "did he use his position as sheriff to influence an election? If so, he could be in violation of a federal election law called the Hatch Act." The basis the Feds are using is whether Scott was campaigning while on duty and in uniform.

Sheriff Scott responded to the NBC story with the following statement:

"I am on duty 24/7 and 365 whether in or out of uniform. Like every other elected official, I am aware of from President to Governor to State Representatives, etc. We engage in political activities whether for ourselves as candidates or for others. As of this writing, I am unaware of having done anything to generate all this attention other than using the senator's full name."

The question is this... If Sheriff Scott had not said "Barack Hussein Obama," do you really think he would now be under investigation? If you answered "no," then that should send a shiver down your spine, because it means that the government is imposing pressure and creating a public example of Scott for simply saying someone's name.

Whether the investigation leads to charges or legal action is not the point. The point is that government intimidation is being brought to bear for someone exercising his first amendment right to free speech. This is wrong, regardless of whether you think his usage of Barack Hussein Obama was appropriate or not. This is still America, isn't it?

Wild Thing's comment...........

Barack Hussein Obama is his name and if Barack does not like his middle name then he could have changed it when he changed his last name a long time ago.
Obama and his campaign behave like some kind of third world dictator. Don't mention his ears he says, don't call him a liberal he has said,don't talk about Ayers, Wright, Rezko he says, and don't use his middle name.

Anyone can see what B. Hussein Obama is doing and as long as people cave in to this jerk Obama, they will be even more sorry IF he wins this election and see the horrors he will do to this country. It will be a lot more then just not letting people use his middle name.

And I have no intention of not using it as long as that is his name. If he doesn't like he can take some of that freaking Bailout Money and go to court and have his name changed.

This is still America the land of the free and a Republic, and we WILL overthrow dictators...... you betcha!

McCain-Palin Rally in Waukesha, WI

"I'm mad! I'm really mad! "When you have Obama, [House Speaker Nancy] Pelosi and the rest of the hooligans up there going to ruin the country, we have to have our head examined!"

"It's time that you two represent the rest of us. So go get 'em!"

The shot heard around the world was just fired!

Americans are finally realizing we are on the verge of losing our country to the Socialists and Communists.


There were shouts of "Nobama" and "Socialist" at the mention of the Democratic presidential nominee.

"It is absolutely vital that you take it to Obama, that you hit him where it hits, there's a soft spot," said James T. Harris, a local radio talk show host, who urged the Republican nominee to use Barack Obama's controversial former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr., and others against him.
"We have the Reverend Wright. We have the Rev. Michael L.Pfleger. We have all of these shady characters that have surrounded him," Harris bellowed. "We have corruption here in Wisconsin and voting across the nation. I am begging you, sir. I am begging you. Take it to him."

The crowd of thousands roared its approval.

"I'm mad! I'm really mad!" another man said." And what's gonig to surprise you it's not the economy. It's the socialists taking over our country!!!!!!"
"Sit down I'm not done. Lemme finish, please," he said after a standing ovation. "When you have Obama, a Pelosi and the rest of the hooligans up there going to run the country, we have to have our head examined.
"It's time that you two represent the rest of us. So go get 'em."

The crowd burst into loud chants of "U-S-A! U-S-A!"

"Senator Obama has a clear radical, far-left, pro-abortion record," McCain said after being asked about the issue.

The answer prompted a shower of boos from the crowd members. They booed again when he mentioned William Ayers, who bombed U.S. facilities to protest the Vietnam War as part of the domestic terrorist group the Weather Underground. They booed again at the mention of Rep. Barney Frank, a liberal from Massachusetts.

"Will you assure us," one woman asked, "that, as president, you will take immediate action to investigate, prosecute and name the names of the people actually responsible?"

"I will," McCain answered. "The same people that are now claiming credit for this rescue are the same ones that were willing co-conspirators in causing this problem that it is," he said, raising his voice to be heard over the crowd. "You know their names. You will know more of their names, Congressman Barney Franks and Senator Chris Dodd are two of them."

"No, I'm not mad, I'm pissed," said Joan Schmitz, who owns a plumbing company here. She said she was frustrated with polls showing Obama surging, Obama himself, the media, and the liberal group ACORN, which she said was registering voters fraudulently.
Noting Obama's connections with Ayers, she said that "if it was a Republican, it would be nonstop," referring to what she said was the media ignoring the controversial acquaintance.
"I can't stand to look at him, I don't trust him. I don't like the circle of friends he keeps, I don't like his policies," Schmitz said of Obama. "I'm pissed off by it. I'm beyond mad. How is he climbing up in the polls?"

On the way into the event, the Republican Party of Wisconsin handed out fliers reading "Your Vote Is Being Stolen," an anti-ACORN leaflet that concluded, "Why is vote fraud allowed? Vote fraud is allowed since it benefits Democrats."

McCain's events are attended by liberal protesters, who often yell epithets and hold angry signs as McCain's bus drives by. And they recalled angry words from Obama at a rally in Las Vegas last month, in which he urged supporters to talk to their friends and neighbors, saying "I want you to argue with them and get in their face", and when Obama also said, “if they bring a knife we’ll bring a gun”.

The Obama camp want us to believe that its all about the economy, we care about the economy and so does the man in the audience that spoke, but to turn our country socialist and the things Obama would do. While the media tries to play this down and act as though Republicans are losing the election and losing their cool, I would like to add that I’m outraged as well. Americans that love their country, will not surrender their freedom nor their children and grandchildren’s futures to socialists. If anyone in the Congress or the mainstream media doubts that the American people are beyond angry, they better think again.

Liberal media is sadly mistaken in their assessment of all of us across this country. Don’t count us out ever. We were born of American pride. Our Uncles, Fathers, husbands, wives, sons and daughters, cousins and frienids didn’t sacrifice and die for us to throw this country and our freedom away to a Muslim Terrorist nor are our troops fighting in Iraq and Afganistan for us to elect a domestic terrorist.

I’m glad that crowd was fired up! It was awesome to watch.

We are united in stopping The One from ever stepping foot in the White House. I think the pollsters are underestimating Republican and Conservative turnout. They think we are staying home. But we will come out in mass numbers, and like John McCains own mother once said, hold our nose and vote for John McCain.

It’s stop B. Hussien Obama and deal with John McCain later.

US Debt Clock Runs Out Of Digits

Until last month, the clock had enough digits to measure US debt levels

US debt clock runs out of digits

BBC News

The US government's debts have ballooned so badly the National Debt Clock in New York has run out of digits to record the spiralling figure.

The digital counter marks the national debt level, but when that passed the $10 trillion point last month, the sign could not display the full amount.

The board was erected to highlight the $2.7 trillion level of debt in 1989.

The clock's owners say two more zeros will be added, allowing the clock to record a quadrillion dollars of debt.

Douglas Durst, son of the late Seymour Durst - the clock's inventor - hopes to replace the Manhattan clock with its lengthier replacement early next year.

For the time being, the Times Square counter's electronic dollar sign has been replaced with the extra digit required.

For its part, the digital dollar symbol has been supplanted by a cheaper version - perhaps a sign of the times for the American economy.

Some economists believe the $700bn bail-out plan for ailing US financial institutions could send the national debt level to $11 trillion.

Let's Be Personal (circa 1973) by Gordon Sinclair

Canadian journalist Gordon Sinclair and his view on Americans. This speech was published on June 5, 1973.

"LET'S BE PERSONAL" Broadcast June 5, 1973 CFRB, Toronto, Ontario

Topic: "The Americans"


The United States dollar took another pounding on German, French and British exchanges this morning, hitting the lowest point ever known in West Germany. It has declined there by 41% since 1971 and this Canadian thinks it is time to speak up for the Americans as the most generous and possibly the least-appreciated people in all the world.

As long as sixty years ago, when I first started to read newspapers, I read of floods on the Yellow River and the Yangtse. Well, Who rushed in with men and money to help? The Americans did, that's who.

They have helped control floods on the Nile, the Amazon, the Ganges and the Niger. Today, the rich bottom land of the Mississippi is under water and no foreign land has sent a dollar to help. Germany, Japan and, to a lesser extent, Britain and Italy, were lifted out of the debris of war by the Americans who poured in billions of dollars and forgave other billions in debts. None of those countries is today paying even the interest on its remaining debts to the United States.

When the franc was in danger of collapsing in 1956, it was the Americans who propped it up and their reward was to be insulted and swindled on the streets of Paris. And I was there. I saw that.

When distant cities are hit by earthquakes, it is the United States that hurries into help... Managua Nicaragua is one of the most recent examples. So far this spring, 59 American communities have been flattened by tornadoes. Nobody has helped.

The Marshall Plan... the Truman Policy... all pumped billions upon billions of dollars into discouraged countries. And now, newspapers in those countries are writing about the decadent war-mongering Americans.

I'd like to see one of those countries that is gloating over the erosion of the United States dollar build its own airplanes.

Come on... let's hear it! Does any other country in the world have a plane to equal the Boeing Jumbo Jet, the Lockheed Tristar or the Douglas 10? If so, why don't they fly them? Why do all international lines except Russia fly American planes? Why does no other land on earth even consider putting a man or a woman on the moon?

You talk about Japanese technocracy and you get radios. You talk about German technocracy and you get automobiles. You talk about American technocracy and you find men on the moon, not once, but several times ... and safely home again. You talk about scandals and the Americans put theirs right in the store window for everybody to look at. Even the draft dodgers are not pursued and hounded. They are right here on our streets in Toronto, most of them... unless they are breaking Canadian laws... are getting American dollars from Ma and Pa at home to spend here.

When the Americans get out of this bind... as they will... who could blame them if they said 'the hell with the rest of the world'. Let someone else buy the bonds, let someone else build or repair foreign dams or design foreign buildings that won't shake apart in earthquakes.

When the railways of France, Germany and India were breaking down through age, it was the Americans who rebuilt them. When the Pennsylvania Railroad and the New York Central went broke, nobody loaned them an old caboose. Both of them are still broke. I can name to you 5,000 times when the Americans raced to the help of other people in trouble.

Can you name to me even one time when someone else raced to the Americans in trouble? I don't think there was outside help even during the San Francisco earthquake.

Our neighbours have faced it alone and I am one Canadian who is damned tired of hearing them kicked around. They will come out of this thing with their flag high. And when they do, they are entitled to thumb their noses at the lands that are gloating over their present troubles.

I hope Canada is not one of these. But there are many smug, self-righteous Canadians. And finally, the American Red Cross was told at its 48th Annual meeting in New Orleans this morning that it was broke.

This year's disasters... with the year less than half-over... has taken it all and nobody... but nobody... has helped.

What's really amazing is how similar everything is today (in Canada, the U.S. and the rest of the World) as it relates to where the U.S. is and how it is viewed both inside and outside the U.S.

Deja vu all over again..

McCain/Palin Rally in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania

Republican vice presidential running mate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, greets Cindy McCain after walking across the tarmac to meet Republican presidential candidate, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., after arriving in Allentown, Pa., Wednesday, Oct. 8, 2008.

A group of well wishers cheered outside the Fed Ex cargo terminal, as McCain’s bus headed away from the airport and through Bethlehem, before stopping at the lighting company Lutron in Upper Saucon Township.

Republican John McCain's Straight Talk Express tour bus rolled into Stabler Arena to the theme from "Rocky" this afternoon and a thunderous cheer from the assembled capacity crowd.

McCain fans roared when his wife Cindy asked how her husband did at last night's debate.

And it sent up raucous cheers of Sarah! Sarah! as Cindy McCain introduced McCain's running mate Sarah Palin.

Sarah Palin said the debate provided voters with a clear choice between two vastly different world views.

"Last night Sen. McCain talked about real pragmatic solutions and Barack Obama talked about why he would rather run against George Bush. That strategy is starting to run pretty darn thin," Palin said.

McCain then took the stage, to chants of "John McCain, John McCain," starting his remarks by focusing on the economy and his new plan to help homeowners struggling with onerous mortgages.

Under the newly-announced McCain plan, called the American Homeownership Resurgence Plan, the government would help homeowners refinance into more manageable payments in order to avoid foreclosures.

"As president, I plan to act quickly and decisively so you can realize the American Dream," McCain said.

Earlier, McCain and Palin's planes arrived within minutes of each other at Lehigh Valley International Airport.

Palin disembarked first, crossing the tarmac to greet McCain as he exited his "Straight Talk Express" jet.

Palin, carrying a tote that read "Real Women Hunt Moose," McCain, and his wife, Cindy, greeted a small group of local dignitaries before boarding a bus to Lehigh University's Stabler Arena.

This morning, thousands of people lined up to wait to see the Republican presidential ticket at Stabler Arena at Lehigh University.

Andrew Allen of Springfield Township and Len Ramirez of Quakertown got to Stabler at 7:30 a.m. They were among the first 50 people or so standing near the front door of the arena.

Allen retired from the Marines last year, he supports McCain's platform on the Iraq War.

"I don't want another 9-11 to happen," he said. "When you go to war you go to win."

Ramirez in in favor of McCain's plan for the economy, especially his plan to buy back bad mortgages.

Both men have tickets for today's event, but arrived early to get good seats.

Four people were already inside at about 11 a.m., among them was volunteer Harry Singh, 70, of Atlanta, Ga., who is a registered Independent. Singh's grandson is a student at Lehigh University and he has other family in the Lehigh Valley.

"I am not a very political person, but the next several years are very important. McCain has got the experience and has faced many challenges. I picked the candidate not the party," Singh said.


LOL this is amazing!!! This is how American citizens so many of us feel , millions of us feel about all that has been happening to our country. Fed up with politicians, fed up with the media being part of the Obama campaign, fed up with Obama and his lies in our face as he smiles and stammers his way through a speech. Fed up with Michelle Obama saying how she is finally proud of America!!!! And fed up with the left, the liberals pushing, shoving and taking over our speech ( Political correctness), their plans for the Fairness Doctrine, stealing from Social Security, not drilling for oil when we have tons of it just for the taking, and so many things and one more huge one.......... their not only lack of support for our troops, but their having signs to kill the officers and baby killer and harassing and destruction at Marine recruiting offices. Sending checks for $600,000 to the terrorists to support them from Code Pink one of the endorsers for Obama. Fed up with Obama's unforgivable comment as he proclaimed that troops in Afghanistan were "air raiding villages and killing civilians." -- Wild Thing

This is what was said by Bill Platt, the Lehigh County Republican Chairman, who talked about Obama's reluctance to wear an American flag lapel pin: "Certainly Barack Obama can learn a thing or two from John McCain about what it means to be a patriot." Then he asked the crowd to work for the Republican ticket: "Think about you'll feel on Nov. 5 if you see the news that Barack Obama, Barack Hussein Obama, is president of the United States."

Palin To Drop Puck At Philadelphia NHL Game


Palin set to drop puck at Philadelphia NHL game

Lebanon, PA news

Sarah Palin's next faceoff will come at center ice at an NHL arena, not at a debate. The GOP vice presidential nominee will drop the ceremonial first puck when the Philadelphia Flyers open the regular season against the New York Rangers on Saturday. Palin, the Alaska governor and self-described "hockey mom," will join the winner of a team promotion for the "Ultimate Hockey Mom" to drop the puck.

Last month, Palin visited a Philadelphia bar with Flyers owner Ed Snider, who has donated money to Republican presidential nominee John McCain's campaign.

"Because of the tremendous amount of publicity she has brought to our sport, we invited the most popular hockey mom in North America to our home opener to help us get our season started," Snider said in a team statement Wednesday. "We are very excited she has accepted our offer and we are very proud of the publicity she is generating for hockey moms and the sport of hockey."

The team will award all hockey moms entered into the contest with a free "puck-er peach" lipstick and four tickets to a hockey game of the Flyers' minor league affiliate, the Philadelphia Phantoms. The winner will appear on the ice with Palin for opening faceoff.

Saturday's game starts at 7 p.m. at the Wachovia Center

Go Lightening!

Wild Thing's comment.........

Oh my gosh I LOVE hockey!! My Dad used to take me to hockey games a lot in Chicago when I was a little girl. It is such an exciting game. When Nicholas and I moved to Florida from Calif. I wacthed the Lightening games on TV.

This is great. I’m sure Biden will be green with envy since he was born in Pa.

Ed Snider voted for Ronald Reagan and from the various things I have read about him he hates communists. haha therefore I guess Obama is not invited. heh heh.

Thank you Darth for telling me about this in your comment.

Notes On Presidential Debate October 7th

Brokaw sounds like he’s half dead! Also Brokaw chose a bunch of horrible questions. The debate was constrained and limited by Tom Brokaw.

I also noticed that Brokaw said John McCain but when talking about Obama said Senator Obama several times. What a total jerk Brokow is. I have never liked him and he just gets worse.

The first answer from Obama ( evil incarnate) and he says it, "the last eight years of Bush." This is his mantra, to blame Bush for everything no matter what.

McCain hammers energy independence , keep taxes low, we need to stop the spending spree in Washington, we need reforms.

Mr. Obamajangles
Obama on his bar stool, looks like Sammy Davis at the Sands.
Only thing missing is a glass of booze and a cigarette.
And an eye patch.--Wild Thing

And then there is Obama's smirking.--WT

Obama, "health care is a right;"

Communist answer from Obama. Hey Idiot Obama Americans have no idea what a right truly is. Now it just means entitlement, thanks to commie's like YOU! The people in this country who want socialism DO NOT DESERVE to be American citizens. Too bad we can’t offer them the choice to strip them of their citizenship and deport them to some nanny state paradise they’ll love.-- Wild Thing

McCain, "health care is a responsibility."

OK here is how a true conservative would have answered, he or she would have done further then McCain's answer. something like this: “Our Founding Fathers specified precisely what our rights are. They are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. That’s it. Those are our rights. Everything else we have is a privilege or a responsibility. That includes education, health care, and houses. To live as a free people - free both economically and politically - we dare not inflate the idea of rights to include every good and service that we desire. That habit of entitlement-thinking leads to the welfare state and to socialism, two killers of economic freedom and prosperity.” -- Wild Thing

McCain bringing up Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac — “Obama and his cronies giving loans to people who could not pay it back” — discussing too vaguely what he did to stop it. He’s on the right track but needs to be SPECIFIC and HARD!!

McCain....he's throwing the gauntlet down on Fannie/Freddie, specifically the Democrats. GOOD! He just blamed Obama and his “cronies”, good.

Senator Smirky (Obama) got the 2nd most donations from them of anyone ever! Meanwhile Obama sits there like a dummy and grins while McCain is saying he’s the 2nd greatest beneficiary of graft from Fannie/Freddie.

McCain is setting the real record straight. Still McCain appears to be nervous, but he's laying out how Obama's entitlement over spending programs are outrageous.

Tom Brokow has some make up on. About a gallon and a half I’d guess. LOL!! His face is as smooth and orange as a Muppet's.

Obama makes me sick!

I am so sick of the blame Bush garbage.

Obama bringing up 9/11 when talking about spending. What the hell????

Obama :" Many of you may remember 9/11."

Many of you?. Shouldn't that be all of us , you pile of Marxist puke? Hey FREAK Ho-bama, 9/11 wasn't a "tragedy." It was an unprovoked act of mass murder of 3000 innocent civilians carried about by Islamic terrorists.The same terrorists who cowardly destroyed 3,000 innocent American lives support Barack Hussein Obama. Why is Obama getting so much money in offshore (illegal) donations from the Middle East? He is a Trojan for Islam.

Obama: “If we could have done anything to stop the Holocaust...”

We did, you dumb know nothing! We went to war with that paper hanging son of a bitch, and stopped him from finishing his evil work with the blood of American patriots! -- Wild Thing

"Brokaw just said Obama this is a question FROM YOU?"

Oh my gosh, besides Obama being totally RUDE at the first debate and now this one too, he is once again asking the questions. You know Obama has a real problem with the need to control people!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hussein also said, "Two years ago, I sent a letter to Fed Chairman Bernanke warning about the impending subprime mortgage crisis..."

Obama is a LIAR! The problem for this drooling, lying imbecile? Two years ago, Alan Greenspan was the Fed Chairman, not Bernanke. In fact, I'll bet that two years ago, Hussein had no idea who Bernanke was or how to get in touch with him. --Wild Thing

I loved it when John McCain quoted Barack Obama: Senator Obama, you said that if the economy was bad, you would withdraw your tax plan. (Looking right in Obama's eyes) Well, Senator Obama, I've got information for you. The news is bad.

McCain Calls Obama " That one" .......LMAO I love it! Oh my gosh this was just so perfect!!!

"You know who voted for it? You might never know. That one," said McCain, gesticulating towards Obama. "You know who voted against it? Me."

McCain was talking about buying up bad mortgages...

He didn’t explain his plan well.

This is the plan he is proposing: ....This is from the McCain/Palin email I received.


John McCain will direct his Treasury Secretary to implement an American Homeownership Resurgence Plan (McCain Resurgence Plan) to keep families in their homes, avoid foreclosures, save failing neighborhoods, stabilize the housing market and attack the roots of our financial crisis. America’s families are bearing a heavy burden from falling housing prices, mortgage delinquencies, foreclosures, and a weak economy. It is important that those families who have worked hard enough to finance homeownership not have that dream crushed under the weight of the wrong mortgage. The existing debts are too large compared to the value of housing. For those that cannot make payments, mortgages must be re-structured to put losses on the books and put homeowners in manageable mortgages. Lenders in these cases must recognize the loss that they’ve already suffered.
The McCain Resurgence Plan would purchase mortgages directly from homeowners and mortgage services, and replace them with manageable, fixed-rate mortgages that will keep families in their homes. By purchasing the existing, failing mortgages the McCain resurgence plan will eliminate uncertainty over defaults, support the value of mortgage-backed derivatives and alleviate risks that are freezing financial markets.

The McCain resurgence plan would be available to mortgage holders that:

· Live in the home (primary residence only)
· Can prove their creditworthiness at the time of the original loan (no falsifications and provided a down payment).

The new mortgage would be an FHA-guaranteed fixed-rate mortgage at terms manageable for the homeowner. The direct cost of this plan would be roughly $300 billion because the purchase of mortgages would relieve homeowners of “negative equity” in some homes. Funds provided by Congress in recent financial market stabilization bill can be used for this purpose; indeed by stabilizing mortgages it will likely be possible to avoid some purposes previously assumed needed in that bill.
The plan could be implemented quickly as a result of the authorities provided in the stabilization bill, the recent housing bill, and the U.S. government's conservatorship of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. It may be necessary for Congress to raise the overall borrowing limit.

Wild Thing's comment........

So that is about it, a few bells and whistles but not all I hoped for.

Just this, we can see what is happening and so much of it is socialism, why they are all bent on this when it has never worked in any country is beyond me.
There is so much on Obama that anyone running against him could have a field day, a banquet of choices to pick from to lay into him about, just as Sarah Palin has been doing.

Something to notice is how easy it is when one is a conservative for that person to stand up for what our country was meant to be and has been till the liberals and rino's got a grip on it. Heck I would love to debate Obama, no big deal, I would have to be coached on some policy things but darn I would not hesitate. Those sitting on the fence are the ones wanting to know the huge differences in what Obama's America would look like and a conservative one that stays in tune with our Founders. The challenge would not be having the nerve to speak up, but in how much time I am allotted for my answers.

This debate was not for people like me, I have made up my mind. I am voting McCain/Palin and for the rest down the ballot to keep Republicans in office. I want the majority back in the Houses and Pelosi and Reid combing the desert for water with one of those ugly sticks as they dry up and wither away into the sand storms.

Once we get a win, and I pray we do, then the other work starts when we let McCain know how we don't like things he wants to do. Hopefully this will be kept to a minimum but let's not bet on it. ( rolling my eyes here).

The worst kind of government corruption, overstepping and abuse that I know of is its disgraceful headlong slide into a socialism.

Our founders never intended for many of the things we see happening today to ever happen. They never intended the Supreme Court to be a legislative body. They never intended God or religion to be written out of public life. They never intend for government to disarm the people. They never intended for government to set up sanctuary cities for illegals. They never intended government to “rule” over the people . They never intended for government to deprive we the people of our
constitutional rights to free speech as we have seen happening with PC taking over and lawsuits happening because someone said something that was not PC. They never intended government to seize wealth and redistribute it to others. Or to provide government forced health insurance or government forced retirement systems. But all these things and more things are socialism and tyranny brought to us by liberals.Unfortunately liberals lite let's call them or rino's have grown in masses in our own party.
Our founding fathers would be aghast and furious to see what is happening, shots would be fired I am sure of it.

Pray for our country and our troops.

Looking Into B.Hussein Obama's Life

Obama and Rezko

Looking Into Obama's Life

author Unknown

"This election has me very worried. So many things to consider. About a year ago I would have voted for Obama. I have changed my mind three times since than. I watch all the news channels, jumping from one to another. I must say this drives my husband crazy. But, I feel if you view MSNBC, CNN, and Fox News, you might get some mi ddle ground to work with. About six months ago, I started thinking 'where did the m oney come from for Obama'. I have four daughters who went to College, and we were middle class, and money was tight. We (including my girls) worked hard and there were lots of student loans."

"I started looking into Obama's life. "

Around 1979 Obama started college at Occidental in California. He is very open about his two years at Occidental, he tried all kinds of drugs and was wasting his time but, even though he had a brilliant mind, did not appl y himself to his studies. 'Barry' (that was the name he used all his life) during this time had two roommates, Muhammad Hasan Chandoo and Wahid Hamid, both from Pakistan.

During the summer of 1981, after his second year in college, he made a 'round the world' trip. Stopping to see his mother in Indonesia, next Hyderabad in India, three weeks in Karachi, Pakistan where he stayed with his roommate's family, then off to Africa to visit his father's family.

"My question - Where did he get the money for this trip? Nether I, nor any one of my children would have had money for a trip like this when they where in college. When he came back he start ed school at Columbia University in New York. It is at this time he wants everyone to call him Barack - not Barry. Do you know what the tuition is at Columbia? It's not cheap to say the least! Where did he get money for tuition? Student Loans? Maybe. After Columbia, he went to Chicago to work as a Community Organizer for $12,000 a year. Why Chicago? Why not New York? He was already living in New York. "

By 'chance' he met Antoin 'Tony' Rezko, born in Aleppo Syria, and a real estate developer in Chicago. Rezko has been convicted of fraud and bribery this year. Rezko, was named 'Entrepreneur of the Decade' by the Arab-American Business and Professional Association'.

About two years later, Obama entered Harvard Law School. Do you have any idea what tuition is for Harvard Law School? Where did he get the money for Law School? More student loans?

After Law school, he went back to Chicago. Rezko offered him a job, which he turned down. But, he did take a job with Davis, Miner, Barnhill & Galland.

Guess what? They represented 'Rezar' which is Rezko's firm. Rezko was one of Obama's first major financial contributors when he ran for office in Chicago.

In 2003, Rezko threw an early fundraiser for Obama which Chicago Tribune reporter David Mendelland claims was instrumental in providing Obama with 'seed money' for his U.S. Senate race.

In 2005, Obama purchased a new home in Kenwoood District of Chicago for $1.65 million (less than asking price). With ALL those Student Loans - Where did he get the money for the property? On the same day Rezko's wife, Rita, purchased the adjoining empty lot for full price. The London Times reported that Nadhmi Auchi, an Iraqi-born Billionaire loaned Rezko $3.5 million three weeks before Obama's new home was purchased. Obama met Nadhmi Auchi many times with Rezko.

"Now, we have Obama running for President. Valerie Jarrett, was Michele Obama's boss. She is now Obama's chief advisor and he does not make any major decisions without talking to her first. Where was Jarrett born? Ready for this? Shiraz, Iran! Do we see a pattern here? Or am I going crazy?"

On May 10, 2008 The Times reported, Robert Malley, advisor to Obama, was 'sacked' after the press found out he was having regular contacts with 'Hamas', which controls Gaza and is connected with Iran. This past week, buried in the back part of the papers, Iraqi newspapers reported that during Obama's visit to Iraq, he asked their leaders to do nothing about the war until after he is elected, and he will 'Take care of things'.

"Oh, and by the way, remember the college roommates that where born in Pakistan? They are in charge of all those 'small' Internet campaign contributions for Obama. Where is that money coming from? The poor and middle class in this country? Or could it be from the Middle East? "

On September 7, 2008, The Washington Times posted a verbal slip that was made on 'This Week' with George Stephanapoulos. Obama on talking about his religion said, 'My Muslim faith'. When questioned, 'he made a mistake'. Some mistake!

"All of the above information I got on line. If you would like to check it - Wikipedia, encyclopedia, Barack Obama; Tony Rezko; Valerie Jarrett: Daily Times - Obam a visited Pakistan in 1981; The Washington Times - September 7, 2008; The Times May 10, 2008."
"Now the BIG question - If I found out all this information on my own, Why haven't all of our 'intelligent' members of the press been reporting this?"
"A phrase that keeps ringing in my ear - 'Beware of the enemy from within'!!!"

Wild Thing's comment........

I do not know the person that wrote this, but the information is accurate and VERY interesting. There are some things in here I never knew before.

How anyone that had even 1/10th of what Barack and Michelle have in their not so distant past in their lives is able to run for any political office is shocking to me.

And how the media not only insistes non of this matters, or even scoffs those trying to put this information out to the public is a disgrace and anti-American.

And lastly how anyone could vote for Obama if they even have a hint as to the kind of person he is shows how few people that SAY they love America simply do NOT!

.....Thank you Mark for sending this to me.

Obama : "That's just how white folks will do you."


Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance

"That's just how white folks will do you. It wasn't merely the cruelty involved; I was learning that black people could be mean and then some.It was a particular brand of arrogance, an obtuseness in otherwise sane people that brought forth our bitter laughter. It was as if whites didn't know that they were being cruel in the first place. Or at least thought you deserving of their scorn." pg 80

"So I read the book to help me understand what makes white people so afraid. Their demons. The way ideas get twisted around. It helps me understand how people learn to hate." (emphasis added). Pg 103


Dan Caplis reports on Barack Obama's negative racial views, and other important revelations about Obama.

"Black Nationalism- “a steady attack on the white race”-is justified if it can deliver results."

And then there is Obama's classic delivered with spirit...”...white man's greed runs a world in need...”

Wild Thing's comment..........

Obama will go down in history as the racist Candidate that could not even heal his racism no matter how many votes he received.

The people that vote for this sick human Obama are just like him imo.

....Thank you Mark for the link and information.

Kenya Holds Corsi 'incommunicado'

Jerome Corsi

Kenya holds Corsi 'incommunicado'


NAIROBI, Kenya – The government of Kenya is holding WND senior staff reporter Jerome Corsi incommunicado at the airport until he departs the country after police shut down a scheduled news conference in which he planned to announce the findings of his investigation into Barack Obama's connections in the country.

Corsi, the author of the No. 1 best-selling book "The Obama Nation," was picked up by authorities at his hotel at 9:45 a.m. and detained at Nyayo House, the provincial headquarters for Nairobi.

"Just as we were about to start the 10 a.m. press conference at the Grand Regency Hotel in Nairobi, Kenyan immigration approached us and detained us," Corsi told WND by telephone this morning. "Tim Bueler, my publicist, and I are now in the immigration offices, with our passports taken. The immigration officer told the press, 'There is no problem, and Dr. Corsi is a friend of Kenya.'"

Corsi and Bueler are booked on a British Airways flight to London tonight, an airline agent confirmed to WND. But Joseph Farah, WND editor and CEO, said he was in touch with Corsi until about 9:30 a.m. Eastern today and has not been able to reach him for several hours.

"We also hear unconfirmed reports from the government claiming it has 'deported' Corsi," Farah said. "Since Corsi was scheduled to leave the country today, this would seem to be a strange action from a government that was well aware of Corsi's presence, his travels and his activities in the country for the last week."

Peter Mbae, a Kenyan publicist who arranged the news conference, told WND he spoke with an immigration officer who confirmed that Ministry of Immigration authorities are holding Corsi and Bueler at the airport until their flight tonight.

Their movements are restricted, and they have no access to telephones, Mbae said, citing the officer.

Corsi had extensive meetings with top Kenyan officials upon his arrival. His visit and his activities during his stay have been well-known to authorities at the highest levels.

A senior immigration official in charge of investigations, Carlos Maluta was quoted by the Associated Press as saying: "We still haven't decided what to do with him."

Despite reports elsewhere to the contrary, Corsi has not been arrested or charged with any offense.

An official with the Embassy of Kenya in Washington said he was unaware of Corsi's detention. The Ministry of Immigration in Nairobi could not be reached for comment. WND tried again, later, to contact a spokesman for the embassy and was told by a receptionist the official word is that Corsi was not detained. "He's enjoying his holiday in Kenya," she said.

Obama has a long history of connections in Kenya, where his father worked as a government economist. Corsi documented this history in his book and went to Kenya to find answers to lingering questions – particularly about the links between the presidential candidate and Kenya Prime Minister Raila Odinga.

Corsi had promised a news conference today that would "expose details of deep secret ties between U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama and a section of Kenya government leaders, their connection to certain sectoral groups in Kenya and subsequent plot to be executed in Kenya should Senator Obama win the American presidency."

Meanwhile, the management of the hotel where Corsi was scheduled to hold the press conference has repudiated its plans to provide the facility.

In a press release, the hotel said: "We would like to assure our business partners and the public at large that Laico Regency Hotel is a law-abiding institution and does not condone any smear campaigns. The management cannot allow such activities to take place."

Corsi told WND he has been assured he will be released soon. He had planned to leave the country tomorrow, arriving in London first and the U.S. Friday

A hotel worker in Nairobi told Reuters Corsi was picked up as soon as he walked into the hotel for the scheduled press conference: "He was walking in and then some immigration officers who were following him snatched him. It happened so fast, they just vanished with him."

"Obama is revered in Kenya for his paternal roots here and as a flagbearer for Africa on the international stage," explained the Reuters dispatch.

Kenyan TV station KTN said Corsi may be sent home due to lack of a work permit. However, Corsi met with top officials in Nairobi earlier this week explaining in detail the purpose of his visit and sharing copies of his news releases and books.

NAIROBI, Kenya – WND senior staff reporter Jerome Corsi today was refused permission to hold a scheduled news conference about his investigation into Barack Obama's Kenyan links by Kenyan immigration officials and soldiers armed with automatic weapons who then took him to his departure flight and made it clear he was not welcome to return.

"Don't ever come back. See you in hell," Corsi reported an unidentified official told him as the author of the No. 1 best-selling book "The Obama Nation" was delivered to a flight departing from Nairobi for London.

Corsi documented the ordeal and dispatched a report to WND from his telephone later in the brief period between the time authorities returned his belongings in preparation for his departure and when the British Airways jet took off.

"We were detained and lied to all day," Corsi wrote. "The immigration officer at the hotel 15 minutes before the press conference this morning said we only needed to come to the immigration headquarters downtown for a few minutes and that we would be back to the hotel for the press conference with only a few minutes delay."

That, however, was not to be the case, as Corsi and Bueler would find out soon after they left their hotel.

"We got brought to immigration headquarters by what turned out to be about a dozen immigration officers plus military armed with automatic rifles," he reported. "Tim got placed in the back of the vehicle and was surrounded by the armed military. I was in the front between the driver and the top immigration officer who first identified himself at the hotel."

Kenyan authorities took their cell phones and passports, even while explaining the Americans were "not under arrest."

Hours later, two lawyers appeared before the author and his publicist, although they had not been requested.

"About 1:30, the chief immigration officer demanded we accompany him immediately to the airport – we were told immigration needed to verify our air tickets, which always were for this flight tonight," Corsi wrote. "The tickets were always e-tickets and could easily be validated by computer from anywhere."

But Kenyan immigration officials then explained the men's entry cards had been "lost" and that Corsi and Bueler had to be at the airport to help investigate what happened.

In addition to being held incommunicado, the two also were held without food.

"We were offered no food until Tim began feeling a problem with his blood sugar, then around 2:30 p.m. the head immigration people allowed one of the immigration officials to accompany us so we could have 'no more than 15 minutes' to buy something to eat,'" Corsi wrote.

Eventually, they were taken from the holding facility to the airport.

"We were led out of headquarters by [the] back stairs and elevators, to avoid the press that had followed us to headquarters and was still waiting for interviews," Corsi reported.
"We went to the airport via armed caravan," Corsi added, and on arrival the two Americans were told to go into a "holding cell" already containing other possible deportees.
"We refused, demanding to know if we were being charged with any offenses, where our lawyers had gone, and why we had to be locked up, when all day we had been lied to and told we would be released 'soon,'" Corsi reported.

The instructions to go into the holding cell were repeated several times, always without success, he said.

Late in the afternoon the two were told they would be allowed to board the British Airways flights to London and "that we had committed no offenses and were not being deported," said Corsi.

But authorities still kept the cell phones and passports.

"About 6 p.m. our lawyer arrived with our luggage, which we had not been allowed to go get or pack," Corsi wrote. "We had no place or opportunity to consult with the lawyer, who was asked to leave once we got our bags."

A brief meeting with Richard Nicholson, the vice consul in the U.S. embassy followed.

"He, too, confirmed we had done nothing wrong and were not being deported," Corsi wrote.

It was shortly after that, when authorities returned Corsi's cell phone, that he was able to provide this report as the British Airways flight prepared for departure for London.

Gov. Sarah Palin Rally in Clearwater, Florida

Thousands of people turned out to hear and see Sarah Palin. Lines formed outside Coachman Park before 5 a.m..

Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin expanded her attack on Democrat Barack Obama's character Monday to include his relationship with an incendiary former pastor as well as his ties to 1960s-era radical Bill Ayers.

Palin criticizes Obama's ties to Wright, Ayers

She embarked on a discussion of Obama's relationship with his former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr.

At a morning rally in Florida, Palin kept up her criticism of Obama's ties to Ayers, a founder of the violent Weather Underground group blamed for several bombings during the Vietnam War era, when Obama was a child.

The Illinois senator has denounced Ayers' radical views and activities.

Sarah Palin isn't backing down on questioning Barack Obama's relationships -- telling voters in Florida Monday that she is curious how the Democratic presidential candidate couldn't know that William Ayers was a co-founder of the Weather Underground terrorist group.

Embodying her role as the Republican campaign's pit bull with lipstick, the vice presidential contender said one of her favorite newspapers -- The New York Times -- reported that Ayers was part of a group that launched a bombing campaign against the Pentagon and U.S. Capitol.

"And then there's even more to the story," Palin told voters in Clearwater, Fla. "Barack Obama says that Ayers was just someone in the neighborhood, but that's less than truthful. His own advisers said they were quote certainly friendly. In fact Obama held one of his first meetings of his political career in Bill Ayers' living room and they worked together on various projects in Chicago."

"This is someone who sees America as 'imperfect enough' to work with a former domestic terrorist who targeted his own country," Palin said of Obama. That was a tamer description than Palin used at rallies in California and Colorado over the weekend.

Saying hi to a Downs baby from the audience.


Report from a Republican that went to the Rally:

"We arrived at Clearwater’s Jack Russell Stadium at 5:30AM and the buses were lined up waiting for the large crowd that had already formed. We were onto a bus by 6:10 for the ride to Coachman Park which is about a half mile away from the stadium. After going through security at the park we entered the pavilion area. My hubby and I were delighted to put on a white shirt to join many others in forming the American flag in the stands behind Sarah! We were seated in by about 7:00 and the program began at 8:00 with great entertainment and speakers prior to Sarah’s arrival.

I am sure there were AT LEAST 20,000 folks in the pavilion area along with many more outside the bleacher area.

We did not know that Senator Lieberman was coming, but we Floridians gave him a super warm welcome. We know he is supporting the right ticket and he is on the correct side in wanting victory in our war against terrorists! Senator Lieberman gave an excellent speech and introduced Sarah to (of course) loud and ingoing cheers!

I won’t take time to tell you about all the great conversations we had with delightful folks in line going onto buses, during our ride, in line going through security, and then with those sitting around us. One thing I must mention is that we McCain/Palin supporters are happy folks! :)

Sarah Palin Leaves Protester Speechless in Florida!!

Wild Thing's comment.......

I am soooo glad they had special equiped buses for those who are wheelchair bound or have difficulty walking. The rallies for Sarah people have had to park a long way from the event or in huge parking lots where there was a lot of walking just to get to the rally site. They have been thoughtful to have golf carts at most of the rallies but just not enough. This is all so new for the GOP to have someone that draws this kind of crowd, but they are learning fast.

This is all just so fantastic! Thank you God!

McCain ` Fire at will! ~ Awesome Speech By McCain in New Mexico

McCain Takes Off Gloves, Slaps Obama with Them

John McCain, today, finally starts talking about Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, the irresponsible leadership at both, and the Democrats' efforts to prevent serious oversight:

HERE IS A VIDEO from C-SPAN ........ I could not find one yet on YouTube that had the entire speech. So C-SPAN willl have to be it for right now. It is REALLY worth watching. He has tons of one line zingers at Obama.

Here’s the transcript:


In less than a month, the American people will make a choice on where they want this country to go, and who they trust to lead us in a time of war and economic crisis. The time for debating and electioneering is drawing to a close. Soon it will be the time for choosing.

Today we have seen a reminder of the importance of that choice. The action Congress took last week to address our financial crisis was a tourniquet, but not a permanent solution. Today we are seeing the stock market fall, and the credit crisis spread to other parts of the world. Our economy is still hurting -- working families are worried about the price of groceries, the price of gas, keeping their jobs and paying their mortgage -- further action is needed. We need to restore confidence in our economy and in our government.

Washington is still on the wrong track and we still need change. The status quo is not on the ballot. We are going to see change in Washington. The question is: in what direction will we go? Will our country be a better place under the leadership of the next president -- a more secure, prosperous, and just society? Will you be better off, in the jobs you hold now and in the opportunities you hope for? Will your sons and daughters grow up in the kind of country you wish for them, rising in the world and finding in their own lives the best of America? And which candidate's experience -- in government and in life -- makes him a more reliable leader for our country and commander in chief for our troops? Who is ready to lead? In a time of trouble and danger for our country, who will put our country first?

I set out on my own campaign for president many months ago. I promised at the beginning to be straight with the American people, knowing that even those who don't agree with me on everything would expect at least that much. I didn't just show up out of nowhere [This line just got a HUGE response from the audience. -- amc ]] after all -- America knows me. You know my strengths and my faults. You know my story and my convictions. And though familiarity in politics can be both helpful to a candidate, or not so helpful, it does at least fill out the picture and answer the essential questions. You need to know who you're putting in the White House -- where the candidate came from and what he or she believes. And you need to know now, before it is time to choose.

In 21 months, during hundreds of speeches, town halls and debates, I have kept my promise to level with you about my plans to reform Washington and get this country moving again. As a senator, I've seen the corrupt ways of Washington in wasteful spending and other abuses of power, and as president I'm going to end them -- whatever it takes. I will propose and sign into law reforms to bring tax relief to the middle class and help to businesses so they can create jobs. I will get the rising cost of food and gas under control. I will help families keep their home, and help students struggling to pay for college. I will make health care more accessible and affordable. I will impose a spending freeze on all but the most vital functions of government. I will review every agency of the federal government, improve those that need to be improved and eliminate those that aren't working for the American people. I will confront th e ten trillion-dollar debt that the federal government has run up, and balance the federal budget by the end of my term in office.

This is the agenda I have set before my fellow citizens. And the same standards of clarity and candor must now be applied to my opponent. Even at this late hour in the campaign, there are essential things we don't know about Senator Obama or the record that he brings to this campaign.

We have all heard what he has said, but it is less clear what he has done or what he will do. What Senator Obama says today and what he has done in the past are often two different things. He has often changed his positions in this campaign, and the best way to determine where he would really take this country is to examine where he has tried to take it in the past.

My opponent has invited serious questioning by announcing a few weeks ago that he would quote -- "take off the gloves." Since then, whenever I have questioned his policies or his record, he has called me a liar.

Rather than answer his critics, Senator Obama will try to distract you from noticing that he never answers the serious and legitimate questions he has been asked. But let me reply in the plainest terms I know. I don't need lessons about telling the truth to American people. And were I ever to need any improvement in that regard, I probably wouldn't seek advice from a Chicago politician.

My opponent's touchiness every time he is questioned about his record should make us only more concerned. For a guy who's already authored two memoirs, he's not exactly an open book. It's as if somehow the usual rules don't apply, and where other candidates have to explain themselves and their records, Senator Obama seems to think he is above all that. Whatever the question, whatever the issue, there's always a back story with Senator Obama. All people want to know is: What has this man ever actually accomplished in government? What does he plan for America? In short: Who is the real Barack Obama? But ask such questions and all you get in response is another barrage of angry insults.

Our current economic crisis is a good case in point. What was his actual record in the years before the great economic crisis of our lifetimes?

This crisis started in our housing market in the form of subprime loans that were pushed on people who could not afford them. Bad mortgages were being backed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and it was only a matter of time before a contagion of unsustainable debt began to spread. This corruption was encouraged by Democrats in Congress, and abetted by Senator Obama.

Senator Obama has accused me of opposing regulation to avert this crisis. I guess he believes if a lie is big enough and repeated often enough it will be believed. But the truth is I was the one who called at the time for tighter restrictions on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac that could have helped prevent this crisis from happening in the first place.

Senator Obama was silent on the regulation of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and his Democratic allies in Congress opposed every effort to rein them in. As recently as September of last year he said that subprime loans had been, quote, "a good idea." Well, Senator Obama, that "good idea" has now plunged this country into the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression.

To hear him talk now, you'd think he'd always opposed the dangerous practices at these institutions. But there is absolutely nothing in his record to suggest he did. He was surely familiar with the people who were creating this problem. The executives of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have advised him, and he has taken their money for his campaign.

He has received more money from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac than any other senator in history, with the exception of the chairman of the committee overseeing them. Did he ever talk to the executives at Fannie and Freddie about these reckless loans? Did he ever discuss with them the stronger oversight I proposed? If Senator Obama is such a champion of financial regulation, why didn't he support these regulations that could have prevented this crisis in the first place? He won't tell you, but you deserve an answer.

Even after he refused to lift a finger to prevent this crisis, when the crisis hit, he was missing in action. He didn't start making calls to round up votes until after the rescue bill failed in the House and the markets crashed. We continue to see the price of delay today as the markets continue to fall. Today the DOW has fallen below 10,000. And yet, members of his own party said they felt no pressure to vote for the bill. Why didn't Senator Obama work to pass this bill from the start? Why did he let it fail and drag out this crisis for a full week before doing a thing to help pass it?

Again on taxes, we see a difference between what Senator Obama says today, what he said yesterday and what he has actually done. Over the course of this campaign, he has had many different plans to raise your taxes. During the Democratic primary, he promised to double taxes on every American with a dividend or an investment. He promised to raise payroll taxes. He promised higher taxes on electricity. Now, Senator Obama claims he will give 95 percent of Americans tax relief. He actually promised the same thing when he was running for Senate in Illinois, but once elected he never introduced legislation to do so. Instead, he voted for the Democratic budget resolution that promised to raise taxes on people making just 42,000 dollars a year. At the time, he even said his vote was intended to get "our nation's priorities back on track." If he's such a defender of the middle class, why did he vote to raise their taxes? Whatever ha ppened to the tax relief he promised them when he was a candidate for the Senate? And why should middle class Americans trust him to keep promises he has already broken?

Senator Obama and I both have differences with how President Bush has handled the economy. But he thinks taxes are too low, and I think spending is too high. The government's out of control spending has resulted in a weaker dollar, raising the cost of groceries and gasoline, and killing jobs.

I will veto pork barrel legislation and cut wasteful government spending. Senator Obama has a different plan. According to third party estimates, he will increase government spending by over 860 billion dollars. He has denied it, but he has refused to tell you how much he does plan to spend. What is the total of his increased spending? Americans deserve to know just how much more of their money Senator Obama intends to spend, and how much more debt he plans to burden them with.

Senator Obama has also criticized earmark spending, those wasteful pork barrel projects stuck in spending bills behind closed doors. And yet, despite his talk on the campaign trail, his actual record is full of requests for earmark projects. In his three short years in the Senate, he has requested nearly a billion dollars in pork projects for his state -- a million dollars for every day he's been in office. Far from fighting earmarks in Congress, Senator Obama has been an eager participant in this corrupt system. In one instance, he sought more than 3 million dollars for a new projector at a planetarium in his hometown. Coincidentally, the chairman of that planetarium pledged to raise more than $200,000 for Senator Obama's campaign. We don't know if they ever discussed the money for the planetarium, and no one has asked Senator Obama. But even the appearance of this kind of insider-dealing disgusts Americans. I'm going to put a stop to that, my friends, if I'm President.

I have made every single donor to my campaign publicly available, while Senator Obama has taken in over 200 million dollars from undisclosed sources. We have already seen the potential for fraud because of his refusal to disclose his donors. His campaign had to return $33,000 in illegal foreign funds from Palestinian donors, and this weekend, we found out about another $28,000 in illegal donations. Why has Senator Obama refused to disclose the people who are funding his campaign? Again, the American people deserve answers.

On health care, Senator Obama has been misleading you about my plan to give you more money for health care, and he has been equally misleading about his own plans. He has said his goal is a single payer system where government is in charge of health care and bureaucrats stand between you and your doctor. Under the plan he has proposed, he will fine families that don't have the kind of health insurance that Senator Obama tells them to purchase. He will fine employers who do not offer the health insurance that he thinks they should offer.

What he doesn't say, and what nobody has asked, is how big his fines will be. What he doesn't want you to know is that with a small fine, his plan will encourage companies to just pay the fine, drop existing health care coverage for their employees and leave them with only one real option: government run health care.

Who is the real Senator Obama? Is he the candidate who promises to cut middle class taxes, or the politician who voted to raise middle class taxes? Is he the candidate who talks about regulation or the politician who took money from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and turned a blind eye as they ran our economy into a ditch?

Is he the candidate who promises change, or is he the politician who has bought into everything that is wrong with Washington? We can't change the system with someone who's never fought the system.

Washington is on the wrong track and I'm going to set it right. The American people know my record. They know I am going to change Washington, because I've done it before. They know I'm going to reform our broken institutions in Washington and on Wall Street because I've done it before. They know I'm going to deliver relief to the middle class, because that's what I've done.

You don't have to hope that things will change when you vote for me. You know things will change, because I have been fighting for change in Washington my whole career. I've been fighting for you my whole life. That's what I'm going to do as President of the United States. Fight for you and put the government back on the side of the people.

Thank you.

Wild Thing's comment........


I got the transcript from one of the PUMA sites hahaha I went there to see if they had any new videos about Sarah.

He called Obama out, said “I didn’t just show up from nowhere. Americans know me.”

Tied Obama to Fannie and Freddie

Said Obama never answers questions, called McCain a liar when he questioned his policies.

McCain, “If I ever need lessons on telling the truth, I won’t ask a Chicago politician.”

Said it is time “America knows the true Barack Obama.”

John, keep squeezing that trigger!

LMAO John and Sarah are double teaming the chosen one. I love it! Now this is more like it! Show him what a fighter pilot can do in a dogfight!

I really liked this one......

McCain, “If I ever need lessons on telling the truth, I won’t ask a Chicago politician.”

Dow just closed over 10000 after being down as far as 9500 earlier in the day. It seems an amazing coincidence that the minute McCain starting kicking a** and taking names, the Dow started surging upwards.

Will The REAL Obama Please Stand Up?

Terrorist William Ayers And Wife Bernadine Dohrn Hosted Meeting To Launch Obama's Political Career

The video is David Axelrod, Obama’s chief strategist, claiming that Obama did not know that Bill Ayers was a domestic terrorist.--- What a LIE from Axelrod! -- Wild Thing

Erik Erikson spells it out, In 1996, Media Coverage of Bill Ayers Was Too Extensive to Believe Obama Did Not Know Who Ayers Was

Barack Obama, at Bill Ayers’ behest, began work in 1995 at the Chicago Annenberg Challenge.

In 1996 At the height of this exposure, major media outlets were quoting Bill Ayers and pointing out his radical past.

The Obama Ayers Relationship

Monday, October 06, 2008

also notes from Politico - article by Ben Smith

The Relationship Between Barack Obama And Bill Ayers Is Much More Extensive Than Obama's Campaign Is Willing To Admit

In 1995, During Obama's First State Senate Campaign, William Ayers And Wife Bernadine Dohrn Hosted A Meeting Of Chicago Liberals At Their Home For Obama, Which One Attendee Said Was Aimed At "Launching Him."

"In 1995, State Senator Alice Palmer introduced her chosen successor, Barack Obama, to a few of the district's influential liberals at the home of two well known figures on the local left: William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn. While Ayers and Dohrn may be thought of in Hyde Park as local activists, they're better known nationally as two of the most notorious -- and unrepentant -- figures from the violent fringe of the 1960s anti-war movement.

'I can remember being one of a small group of people who came to Bill Ayers' house to learn that Alice Palmer was stepping down from the senate and running for Congress,' said Dr. Quentin Young, a prominent Chicago physician and advocate for single-payer health care, of the info rmal gathering at the home of Ayers and his wife, Dohrn. '[Palmer] identified [Obama] as her successor.' ... Dr. Young and another guest, Maria Warren, described it similarly: as an introduction to Hyde Park liberals of the handpicked successor to Palmer, a well-regarded figure on the left. 'When I first met Barack Obama, he was giving a standard, innocuous little talk in the living room of those two legends-in-their-own-minds, Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn,' Warren wrote on her blog in 2005. 'They were launching him -- introducing him to the Hyde Park community as the best thing since sliced bread.'" (Ben Smith, "Obama Once Visited '60s Radicals," The Politico, 1/22/08)

From March Of 1995 Until September Of 1997, Obama And Ayers Attended At Least Seven Meetings Together Relating To The Chicago Annenberg Challenge. (Chicago Annenberg Challenge, Board Of Directors Meeting, Minutes Of The Board, 3/15/95, 3/31/95, 4/13/95, 6/5/95, 9/30/97; National Annenberg Challenge Evaluation Meeting, List Of Participants, 5/24/95; Chicago Annenberg Challenge, Chicago School Reform Collaborative Meeting, Minutes, 10/23/96)

From 1995 to 1999, Obama led an education foundation called the Chicago Annenberg Challenge (CAC), and remained on the board until 2001. The group poured more than $100 million into the hands of community organizers and radical education activists. The CAC was the brainchild of Bill Ayers.

The Obama campaign has struggled to downplay that association. Last April, Sen. Obama dismissed Mr. Ayers as just "a guy who lives in my neighborhood," and "not somebody who I exchange ideas with on a regular basis." Yet documents in the CAC archives make clear that Mr. Ayers and Mr. Obama were partners in the CAC. Those archives are housed in the Richard J. Daley Library at the University of Illinois at Chicago and I've recently spent days looking through them.

The CAC's agenda flowed from Mr. Ayers's educational philosophy, which called for infusing students and their parents with a radical political commitment, and which downplayed achievement tests in favor of activism.

In 1997, Obama Praised Ayers' Book On The Juvenile Justice System. "The two men were involved in efforts to reform the city's education system. They appeared together on academic panels, including one organized by Michelle Obama to discuss the juvenile justice system, an area of mutual concern. Mr. Ayers's book on the subject won a rave review in The Chicago Tribune by Mr. Obama, who called it 'a searing and timely account.'" (Jo Becker and Christopher Drew, "Pragmatic Politics, Forged On The South Side," The New York Times, 5/11/08)

Obama On William Ayers' "A Kind And Just Parent: The Children Of Juvenile Court": "A searing and timely account of the juvenile court system, and the courageous individuals who rescue hope from despair." (Chicago Tribune, 12/21/97)

1997 and 2001...."[Obama And Ayers] Have Also Appeared Jointly On Two Academic Panels, One In 1997 And Another In 2001." (Russell Berman, "Obama's Ties To Left Come Under Scrutiny," The New York Sun, 2/19/08)

From 1999 To 2002, Obama Served With Ayers On The Board Of Directors For Woods Fund Of Chicago. "[Ayers] served with [Obama] from 1999 to 2002 on the board of the Woods Fund, an anti-poverty group." (Timothy J. Burger, "Obama's Chicago Ties Might Fuel 'Republican Attack Machine'," Bloomberg, 2/15/08)

During The Time Obama And Ayers Served Together On The Woods Fund, Ayers Was Quoted Saying "I Don't Regret Setting Bombs ... I Feel We Didn't Do Enough." "'I don't regret setting bombs,' Bill Ayers said. 'I feel we didn't do enough.' Mr. Ayers, who spent the 1970's as a fugitive in the Weather Underground, was sitting in the kitchen of his big turn-of-the-19th-century stone house in the Hyde Park district of Chicago." (Dinitia Smith, "No Regrets For A Love Of Explosives," The New York Times, 9/11/01)
NOTE: Obama, Born August 14th, 1961, Was 40 Years Old When Ayers Was Quoted. (Obama For America Website,, Accessed 10/6/08; Dinitia Smith, "No Regrets For A Love Of Explosives," The New York Times, 9/11/01)
While Obama And Ayers Were Serving On The Woods Fund Together, Ayers Posed Standing On An American Flag For An Article In Chicago Magazine Entitled "No Regrets." (Marcia Froelke Coburn, "No Regrets," Chicago Magazine, 8/01)

Obama And Ayers Are Neighbors In Chicago's Hyde Park Neighborhood.

Obama Spokesman Ben LaBolt Told The New York Times That Last Year Obama And Ayers "Bumped Into Each Other On The Street In Hyde Park." "[Obama spokesman Ben LaBolt] said they have not spoken by phone or exchanged e-mail messages since Mr. Obama began serving in the United States Senate in January 2005 and last met more than a year ago when they bumped into each other on the street in Hyde Park." (Scott Shane, "Obama And '60s Bomber: A Look Into Crossed Paths," The New York Times, 10/4/08)
Neighbors Have Said "It's Only Natural" That Obama Would Know Ayers, Who Often Opens His Home For Gatherings, As Obama And His Wife "Are A Part Of Our Neighborhood And Part Of Our Social Circle." "Since coming out of hiding in 1980, the couple have raised three boys in Chicago and become part of the fabric of their liberal South Side neighborhood. Neighbors said it's only natural that Obama would know Ayers and Dohrn, who often open their homes for gatherings filled with lively discussions about politics, arts and social issues. Obama and his wife 'are part of our neighborhood and part of our social circle,' said Elizabeth Chandler, a neighbor of Ayers'." (Trevor Jensen, Robert Mitchum and Mary Owen, "Bill Ayers' Turbulent Past Contrasts With Quiet Academ ic Life," Chicago Tribune, 4/17/08)

Ayers' Organization, The Weather Underground, Was A "Violent Left-Wing Activist Group":

"William Ayers ... [Was] A Founding Member Of The Group That Bombed The U.S. Capitol And The Pentagon During The 1970s." (Russell Berman, "Obama's Ties To Left Come Under Scrutiny," The New York Sun, 2/19/08)

Ayers' Group, The Weather Underground, Is A "Violent Left-Wing Activist Group." "Senator Obama's ties to a former leader of the violent left-wing activist group the Weather Underground are drawing new scrutiny as he battles Senator Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination." (Russell Berman, "Obama's Ties To Left Come Under Scrutiny," The New York Sun, 2/19/08)

The Weather Underground Produced A Manual Which Begins, "We Are A Guerrilla Organization. We Are Communist Women And Men, Underground In The United States For More Than Four Years." "The coalition was said to be a violence-prone faction inspired by the Weather Underground's ''Prairie Fire,'' a guerrilla warfare manual published in 1974. The manual begins, 'We are a guerrilla organization. We are Communist women and men, underground in the United States for more than four years.'" (Paul L. Montgomery, "2 Women In Brink's Case Identified With Weathermen From Start In '69," The New York Times, 10/ 22/81)


Wild Thing's comment...........

These things above are of immense importance not just because of the Ayers association itself , but because of the increasingly visible cover-up by Obama of the true facts/connections.

Two policeman - family men - were killed by this gang, in addition to the havoc they caused with all the bombing. That resonates.

These were terrorists in every sense of the word.

That Ayers appears today as a college professor is most deceiving. It is a testimony to the power of the money of, ironically, his industrialist father that he is not serving life in prison.

He and his wife remain unrepentant terrorists.

This election will determine if the United States of America remains the kind of country it was as founded to be, with the rule of law and individual freedom and liberty, pursuit of happiness, all of these things, capitalism, free markets. Right now they are under assault, not only by Obama and his wife, but by an entire political party and leftists who are everywhere, including in the Media.

They want to deny others liberty. They are a great threat to the future of this country as we know it

McCain/Palin New Ad Called ...." Dangerous"

Wild Thing's comment..........

Our troops in Afghanistan are just "air raiding villiages and killing civilians" is the way this video starts. In Obama's own words, voice and image.

Short (35 seconds!), direct and to the point.

Wonderful Interview Of Gov. Sarah Palin

The Wright Stuff

New York Times


I spoke on the phone Sunday with Sarah Palin, who was in Long Beach, Calif., preparing to take off on her next campaign trip. It was the first time I’d talked with her since I met her in far more relaxed circumstances in Alaska over a year ago. But even though she’s presumably now under some strain and stress, she seemed, as far as I could tell, confident and upbeat.

In terms of substance, some of what she had to say was unsurprising: She doesn’t have a very high opinion of the mainstream media, and she believes an Obama administration would kill jobs by raising taxes. But she said a couple of things that were, I thought, either personally touching or politically provocative.

At one point, noting that Palin had remarked ruefully almost a week ago that her son Track had been, since his recent deployment to Iraq, in touch with his girlfriend but not his mother, I asked whether she had subsequently heard from him.

Palin told me she had. “He called the day of the debate, and it was so wonderful because it was the first call since they were deployed over there, and it was like a burden lifted even when I heard his voice.” Palin said that she told him that she had a debate that night. “And he says, ‘Yeah, I heard, Mom,’ and he says, ‘Have you been studying?’ And I said, ‘Yeah, I have,’ and he goes, ‘O.K., well I’ll be praying.’ I’m like — total role reversal here, that’s what I’ve been telling him for 19 years.”

That was Palin the hockey mom — or rather the military mom.

As for the campaign, Palin made clear — without being willing to flat out say so — that she regretted allowing herself to be overly handled and constrained after the Republican convention. She described the debate on Thursday night as “liberating,” and she emphasized how much she now looked forward to being out there, “getting to speak directly to the folks.”

Since she seemed to have enjoyed the debate, I asked her whether she’d like to take this opportunity to challenge Joe Biden to another one.

There was a pause, and I thought I heard some staff murmuring in the background (we were on speaker phones). She passed on the notion of a challenge. But she did say she was more than willing to accept an invitation to debate with Biden again, and even expressed a preference for a town hall meeting-type format.

Since their debate drew more than 70 million television viewers — some 20 million more than watched John McCain and Barack Obama the week before — I trust that various civic associations, universities and media organizations will have invitations in the mail to Biden and Palin pronto.

And, really, shouldn’t the public get the benefit of another Biden-Palin debate, or even two? If there’s difficulty finding a moderator, I’ll be glad to volunteer.

Palin also made clear that she was eager for the McCain-Palin campaign to be more aggressive in helping the American people understand “who the real Barack Obama is.” Part of who Obama is, she said, has to do with his past associations, such as with the former bomber Bill Ayers. Palin had raised the topic of Ayers Saturday on the campaign trail, and she maintained to me that Obama, who’s minimized his relationship with Ayers, “hasn’t been wholly truthful” about this.

I pointed out that Obama surely had a closer connection to the Rev. Jeremiah Wright than to Ayers — and so, I asked, if Ayers is a legitimate issue, what about Reverend Wright?

She didn’t hesitate: “To tell you the truth, Bill, I don’t know why that association isn’t discussed more, because those were appalling things that that pastor had said about our great country, and to have sat in the pews for 20 years and listened to that — with, I don’t know, a sense of condoning it, I guess, because he didn’t get up and leave — to me, that does say something about character. But, you know, I guess that would be a John McCain call on whether he wants to bring that up.”

I guess so. And I guess we’ll soon know McCain’s call on whether he wants to bring Wright up — perhaps at his debate with Obama Tuesday night.

I asked at the end of our conversation whether Palin, fresh off her own debate, had any advice for McCain. “I’m going to tell him the same thing he told me. I talked to him just a few minutes before I walked out there on stage. And he just said: ‘Have fun. Be yourself, and have fun.’ And Senator McCain can do the same.” She paused, and I was about to thank her for the interview, but she had one more thing to say. “Only maybe I’d add just a couple more words, and that would be: ‘Take the gloves off.’ ”

And maybe I’d add, Hockey Mom knows best.

Wild Thing's comment..........

I think Rev; Wright must have turned off a certain amount of people not to vote for Obama.

Sarah is setting a lot of firsts. The VP debate had the most viewers than any other time in history.

I have said this before, God gave us and America Sarah Palin and I will do all I can to make sure she will be our VP.

.....Thank you Mark for sending this to me.

Obama Youth - Junior Fraternity Regiment

Obama Youth - Junior Fraternity Regiment

This is where this school is located: ( Below the address for the school I posted what the person that has the video at YouTube has said, so the quotes belong to that person )

18th & Vine District, Kansas City, MO
Educational Organization

" I called and spoke to Bernard, who said he was the assistant Dean. He was very gentlemanly and when I voiced my concerns about the video, he told me that this was taken at the school last year when Obama was beginning his campaign. He assured me that they stopped this "regiment" because they felt the person who was organizing it was pushing his political agenda. Duh
He assured me that he didn't know it was on YouTube. I gave him the link to where to go for this video and when he found it he said, "Oh this is not good. I had no idea" I told him I'd take his word for it. He then asked me, nicely, "what's the main concern? Because I want to understand where you're coming from so that I can figure out how to handle this."
Nicely, I told him that the video looked militant. I told him about the Colburn School video and how it resembles propaganda films from Communist dictatorships. I told him that the US military is frowned upon for going to high schools trying to recruit potential grads into joining their ranks. Why shouldn't we frown upon those who come to a school like yours to encourage kids to worship a politician? One who is not even a president.
I also said that if this was done to make kids feel better about themselves, why do it in the name of Obama? Why not encourage kids to believe in the power of themselves?

He assured me that he would get to the bottom of the situation, thanked me for my call and we hung up."

Wild Thing's comment..............

Isn't this great! NOT! This kind of thing is scary to me.No way is this motivation, it is more of the sick worship of Obama.

Alpha, Omega," which is one of the Biblical names for Jesus - "the Alpha and Omega." The beginning and the end.

I pray we don't have this kind of thing for 8 years, this is something that would grow if Obama becomes President.

Desperate Obama To TRY and Hit McCain on Keating Scandal

Politico ....for complete article

Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) on Monday will launch a multimedia campaign to draw attention to the involvement of Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) in the “Keating Five” savings-and-loan scandal of 1989-91, which blemished McCain’s public image and set him on his course as a self-styled reformer.

Retaliating for what it calls McCain's “guilt-by-association” tactics, the Obama campaign is e-mailing millions of supporters a link to a website,, which will have a 13-minute documentary on the scandal beginning at noon Eastern time on Monday. The overnight e-mails urge recipients to pass the link on to friends.

The Obama campaign, including its surrogates appearing on radio and television, will argue that the deregulatory fervor that caused massive, cascading savings-and-loan collapses in the late ‘80s was pursued by McCain throughout his career, and helped cause the current credit crisis.

Obama’s offensive comes after McCain’s running mate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, spent two days telling voters, donors and reporters that Obama showed poor judgment in his relationship with the former radical William Ayers.

McCain’s campaign has vowed to make a major issue of Obama’s Chicago relationships in coming days, with a senior McCain official telling Politico that they are “the vehicle that allows us to question Obama’s truthfulness about his past and his plans for the future.”

The McCain campaign also plans to invoke money launderer Tony Rezko. Officials say they will not bring up Obama's former minister, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, because McCain has forbade his campaign from using that as an attack. But the officials said outside groups supporting McCain might highlight Wright.

Responding to the Keating blast from the past, a Republican official said the Obama team seemed "frantic" at "the mere mention of the word 'Ayers.'"

“The fact that the Obama team is recycling this old garbage 24 hours after Bill Ayers entered the race is a testament to how worried the Obama camp is of an unfettered airing of his associations," the official said. "Obama is a clever enough politician to know that his unexplored relationships with terrorists and felons are a serious liability in a race this close.”


Wild Thing's comment..........

LOL I can't help but laugh at this. Sarah Palin spoke the TRUTH, FOX news special was the TRUTH, New York Times shocking as it was for them to tell the truth they hit Obama with the TRUTH and they have been for Obama all this time.

So how does little Hussein attempt to fight back? With Keating Five trying and lies about what happened. Keep trying Obama you freak!

Keating Five: Alan Cranston (D-CA); Dennis DeConcini (D-AZ); John Glenn (D-OH); and Donald W. Riegle, Jr. (D-MI)....and John McCain.

Note, four Democrats and one Republican. In doing so, however, we must also note that Robert Bennett, Chief Counsel to the Democrats during the investigation, said that McCain should not be included in the investigation and that their was not evidence of any wrong doing by Senator McCain.

Robert Bennett, a Washington lawyer and big dem, was the special prosecuter for the Keating scandal. He has many times stated that John McCain should never have been included in the Keating 5. And...he’s said this repeatedly within the past year.

In February this year, on Fox News’ “Hannity and Colmes,” Bennett said

“First, I should tell your listeners I’m a registered Democrat, so I’m not on (McCain’s) side of a lot of issues. But I investigated John McCain for a year and a half, at least, when I was special counsel to the Senate Ethics Committee in the Keating Five. ... And if there is one thing I am absolutely confident of, it is John McCain is an honest man. I recommended to the Senate Ethics Committee that he be cut out of the case, that there was no evidence against him.”

Both McCain and John Glenn were held blameless. It was really the “Keating Three”, but the Dem Controlled Senate kept McCain and Glenn involved so it would be “bipartisan” scandal.

John McCain apologized to the country for any sign of impropriety AND he led a number of campaigns to get rid of the same sort of bribes.

In the presidential campaign, McCain had confided that his intervention with bank regulators on Keating’s behalf was the worst mistake of his adult life, one that caused him as much anguish as spending five years in a North Vietnamese prisoner-of-war camp. The Arizona Republican said the incident taught him that “the appearance of impropriety” can be as damaging as actual wrongdoing.

McCain and Glenn drawing the lightest reprimands, only a finding that they had shown poor judgment. McCain also agreed to pay back tens of thousands of dollars in personal and campaign largesse from Keating.

If Obama goes after McCain on this, Obama may end up with egg on his face.

McCain's life has been pretty much an open book, unlke Obama and all the questions surrounding him including his birth certificate, and does have dual citizenship etc.

McCain himself, through his campaign, made it pretty clear today what he intends to do about this. BRAVO!.

“The last four weeks of this election will be about whether the American people are willing to turn our economy and national security over to Barack Obama, a man with little record, questionable judgment, and ties to radical figures like unrepentant domestic terrorist William Ayers. Americans need to ask themselves if they’ve ever befriended an unrepentant terrorist, or had a convicted felon help them buy their house — because those aren’t smears, those are true facts about Barack Obama.” —Tucker Bounds, spokesman McCain-Palin 2008

Robert Bennett in case it is important for anyone to know is also the borther of radio talk show host and contributor on CNN, Bill Bennett’s brother.

Obamalamadingdong’s negatives are SO MUCH higher than McCain’s! This is just a scare tactic by the Obamatons, and it won’t work. McCain bringing up Ayers, Rezko, and Raila Odinga WILL! Obam-uh-uh-uh SHOULD be scared of negative campaigning.

Barack HUSSEIN Obama and His Cousin Raila Odinga

Barack HUSSEIN Obama & Raila Odinga

Barack Obama and the leader of Kenya's socialist Orange Democratic Movement.


More brutal and gory details of the man Obama unequivocally supports.

This is more than bad judgment, this is scary. A Jacksonian who has done yeoman's work in substantiating Odinga's nefarious Arab ties and his hand in the ongoing violence that has all of Kenya in its barbaric clutches. Inconceivable horror. Gang raping little girls and boys as many as ten times. That's just the tip of the iceberg.

"Obama has had near-daily conversations with the U.S. Ambassador in Kenya or with opposition leader Raila Odinga. As of late this afternoon, before his rally in Rochester, N.H., Obama was trying to reach Kenyan President Kibaki."

Obama's bias for his fellow Luo was so blatant that a Kenya government spokesman denounced Obama during his visit as Raila's "stooge."

OBAMA'S OTHER LIFE Time Magazine Joe Klein

One of the more extraordinary stories of the Obama campaign has been playing out behind the scenes over the past week as the candidate has been working on a daily basis to try to calm things down in his father's homeland and his grandmother's home, Kenya, where a contested election has led to riots.

On January 1, 2008 , two days before the Iowa caucuses, Obama left a message for Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. According to Robert Gibbs, Obama's Communications Director, Rice called back "as we were driving from Sioux City to Council Bluffs on January 1. They talked about the situation and Rice asked Obama to tape a Voice of America message calling for calm." Obama taped the message on January 2, after a rally in Davenport, Iowa. He said, in part:

"Despite irregularities in the vote tabulation, now is not the time to throw that strong democracy away. Now is a time for President Kibaki, opposition leader Odinga, and all of Kenya’s leaders to call for calm, to come together, and to start a political process to address peacefully the controversies that divide them. Now is the time for this terrible violence to end.

Kenya’s long democratic journey has at times been difficult. But at critical moments, Kenyans have chosen unity and progress over division and disaster. The way forward is not through violence – it is through democracy, and the rule of law. To all of Kenya’s people, I ask you to renew Kenya’s democratic tradition, and to seek your dreams in peace."

On January 3, the day of the caucuses, he had a conversation with Bishop Desmond Tutu, who had flown to Nairobi to see if he could begin negotiations with the factions. In the days since his Iowa victory, Obama has had near-daily conversations with the U.S. Ambassador in Kenya or with opposition leader Raila Odinga. As of late this afternoon, before his rally in Rochester, N.H., Obama was trying to reach Kenyan President Kibaki.

Near daily conversations with Odinga but has not yet spoken with the Kenyan President?

Obama is busy right now--but it does seem noteworthy that, in the midst of the most amazing week of his life, Barack Obama has found the time to be so busy trying to reach his cousin Odinga.

Wild Thing's comment..........

Yo Obama, let’s see you defend yourself for campaigning OPENLY in 2006 for your cousin the COMMUNIST Raila Odinga who signed a pact with Muslims to enact Sharia Law if elected and started riots when he lost.

Odinga, a rabid socialist tyrant and violent monster, and Obama made a visit to help this radical’s cause....and Obama's trip was made at US taxpayer expense!

Obama was campaigning for a communist Muslim who signed a pact to enact Sharia Law, that’s enough. A POTUS who campaigned for an anti-american Muslim commie on foreign soil.

Actually the Democrat party should change it's name now. The Socialist party, communist party, the Nationalist Socialists...something like these would be more appropriate.

Gov. Sarah Palin Rally At Carson City, Calif. Tennis Stadium at Home Depot Center

Carson City is in the heart of Los Angeles County oil refining and chemical industry territory. It is the home of Hot Rod Derby, Demolition Derby and dirt track motorcycle and midget car racing.

The Home Depot Center is a 125-acre development in Carson, California, featuring state-of-the-art stadiums and facilities for soccer, tennis, track & field, cycling, lacrosse, rugby, volleyball, baseball, softball, basketball and other sports. Designated as an “Official U.S. Olympic Training Site,” The Home Depot Center is the nation’s most complete training facility for Olympic, amateur and professional athletes.

The crowd cheered when they saw the Israeli/US flag! Awesome moment at the event!

Dana Rohrbacher spoke and was connecting Palin to Reagan and Jimmy Steward from Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.

Jon Voight has really impressed me with his change in his politics. Jon Voight calls the Mark Levin’s show often. I don't get a chance to hear the show as much as I used to but when I do, a lot of the time Jon is calling in to his show.

The warm ups were energetic, former Treasury Sec. Rosario Marin and Actor Jon Voight.

In a surprising move, the California head of NOW introduced Sarah. She announced that she was a life long Dem, which drew boos from the crowd lol. She then gave a gracious and supportive introduction to Gov Palin. Sarah charged the stage with a huge smile and rocked the crowd with plenty of red meat and humor.

Sarah Palin started off with a line I will never forget, she said: I was drinking coffee out of my Starbucks Cup (Crowd Cheering) and on the cup there was a quote it read: “There is a special place reserved in hell for women that dont support other women”! Crowd cheering again, “And you know who the quote is from? She say’s Madeline Albright”! Crowd goes wild. Then she went on the attack and started in on Obama’s connections to Domestic terrorist Bill Ayres and others, Crowd goes wild again.

Sarah Palin told an enthusiastic crowd Saturday afternoon that it was time to “put on the heels and take off the gloves.”

And while she credited the line to a campaign worker, it and the rest of her 24-minute speech at the Home Depot Center rally was delivered like only Sarah can.

“For millions of Californians, this is still Reagan country and we’re here to take it back,” she said.

During her speech there were about five or six Obamabots escorted out by Sheriffs as the crowd chanted USA. Sarah riffed on one, saying something like "we fight for their freedoms as well" Crowd loved it!

Obama cultists protesting the appearance of Sarah yelling " NO USA! No USA! " ..... Palin supporters were chanting USA, USA, to whatever the cultists were saying.


Palin praised running mate John McCain and criticized Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama while spelling out the goals of a McCain-Palin administration during her speech before an overflow crowd.

As you saw in my other post, the video, Sarah brought up William Ayers connection to Obama. She said that the Ayers information came from the NY Times .
Obama and ’60s Bomber: A Look Into Crossed Paths
New York Times
October 3, 2008

Home Depot Center officials estimated as many as 20,000 people, jammed into the 8,000-seat capacity facility and an overflow area, attended the rally.

This is when everyone was waiting to get into the arena.

The clouds threatened rain, and a few sprinkles fell while Sarah was talking, but heavier patch of sprinkles waited until after she finished her speech. Overall it was a great environment for the event.

When Sarah was done speaking the crowds rushed the stage, like we have seen before with rock stars. haha They LOVE her!

Saturday's event was Palin's first visit to Southern California since McCain named her as his running mate Aug. 29. The Alaska governor said her father was born in Los Angeles and her paternal grandfather was a photographer who lived in North Hollywood.

From Carson, Sarah went on to a fundraising dinner in the Costa Mesa area.


Wild Thing's comment.........

Home Depot?( giggle) Was Biden there? He claimed to hang out there in the debate. ( I know it is a different State but I could not resist heh heh)

Sarah was introduced by the President of the LA chapter of N.O.W.. Incredible. hahahahahaha

I lived in LA most all my life.. this kind of turn out there for Sarah will be makiing the liberals do a freaked out double take, 5000 would be big.. .....but 20,000???? HUGE, beyond HUGE!!

I got this from a friend that lives there and went to the rally:

"The ADT Center seats 27,000 for soccer. Even more for Tennis. They rolled out extra stands and made it a very tight fit. If there were less than 30,000 there, I will eat my lap top. LOL, OH and Sarah made it clear in today’s rally that the MSM is not to be trusted!!!! Punctuated by the same sentiments by Jon Voight. THEN, I go looking for my car which if you have ever been to Cal State Dominguez Hills you know there are a million parking lots and ya better write down where you parked if you expect to find it!
Well like an ass I didnt, I was walking and walking and walking again and then I ran into one of the employees for the event and I asked him approximately where I was. He say's Ma'am you are going to have to step off the road, I said why? What's going on? He said "Sarah Palin's motorcade is coming"! I said NO WAY! So I just stood there next to this guy waiting and sure enough here comes her motorcade, I start waving like a lunatic lol and then all the sudden there she was! Not 2 feet from me! She looked at me, smiled and waved at me! AT ME! I was like I dont believe this! She made eye contact with me! And was just as natural as could be!
I was so excited, then I really forgot where my car was and was walking and walking blisters on my feet and all, and then one of those golf cart driving people came up to me and told me to get in and they helped me find my car.
Needless to say every blister on my feet was worth it. What an awesome day! "

Two VERY Important Specials on FOX! MUST SEE!!!!

Hannity's America" EXPOSE: All of Barack Obama's Radical Connections (FOXNews Sun. 9 pm EST)

1-hour EXPOSE on all of Barack Obama's radical connections and associations hosted by Sean Hannity on his new show, "Hannity's America".

Obama & Friends: A History of Radicalism: 'Hannity's America' investigates Obama's college years, time as a community organizer and numerous controversial relationships

To quote Sean Hannity, "No one else in the television news media is going to cover this information".


EVERYONE SOULD WATCH THIS PROGRAM!.....This is a must see special.

Last night Nicholas and I watched "SAVING OUR ECONOMY. WHAT'S NEXT?" on FOX and it was an excellent program!!!!

I urge all to watch it if you have not already. I have looked it up on our TV schedule and it says it will be shown right after the Special by Hannity.

I urge everyone to tape this and make copies, send it to friends and family. There are people that need to go to jail for this. There is one person in particular that cannot win the presidency because of this - that is Obama.

It went all the way back to the depressions New Deal and moved right up to Barney Frank and Dodd. It also linked Obama to the radical group Acorn, Fanny May, and Freddie Mac.

It layed out in great detail how we got into this mess step by step in a timeline format. It named names as to just who benefited and HOW MUCH they benefited. It showed how the Democrats stopped a bill that would have prevented the mess we are in now.

God Bless Fox news for reporting the truth of this mess!!

America needs to know which party is truly at the root of this historic economic scandal and which presidential candidate made a career of shaking down banks on behalf of ACORN...and it was not the republicans or John McCain.

After the crash of the stock market, the financial crisis lasted for years. Why, asked David Asman to an expert of this very subject, a woman named Amity Shlaes, wrote a book called “The Forgotten Men”, about the Great Depression that began after the fall of the stock market.

According to her, Roosevelt imposed more and more high taxes on businesses, which, rather than pay the taxes, closed their doors. Thus rampant unemployment at 20% arose and the depression actually went on until 1954.

This is very important to me. Because this is exactly what Barack Obama plans to do, raise taxes on businesses. How many businesses will close their doors this time and unemployment will rise? Will Barack Obama’s plan to raise taxes on businesses cause the next Great Depression?

It is one hour, and it goes very fast. Thank God for FOX!

Saving Our Economy: What's Next?

Hosted by David Asman

The economic crisis of the century. Our entire nation at risk. Who's to blame and how do we fix it? FOX News Channel teams up with FOX Business Network for an in-depth investigation into how we got here, the questions facing Washington's bailout plan and the how the disaster impacts the agenda of the next president.

Jon Voight Defends Palin & Attacks The Media

Jon Voight is in California to appear with Sarah Palin at her 10/04 campaign rally.

He really served it up to that reporter. He nailed it with his comments about the partisan press. Jon is also in the new movie out called “An American Carol” as George Washington.

Jon Voight was asked one time about when he was against the Vietnam War, and he said I was young and stupid...I’ve seen the light and have done a complete about face........WOW has he ever...

Palin Criticizes Obama's 'Terrorist' Connection

Palin says Obama ‘palling around’ with terrorists......

‘This is not a man who sees America as you see America and as I see America’...

Wild Thing's comment...........

I think she is going to drive Obama crazy. I love it. She is a gem. She has been let loose. Go Sarah and Todd!

Obama is a thug and organizes thugs!!!! Gov. Sarah Palin accepted the nomination with the intention of winning and has engaged the democrats.

What do Obama and Osama have in common? They both have friends who tried to blow up the Pentagon.

Obama also hung around with Frank Marshall Davis, CPUSA traitor and child molester, Charles Manson admirer Bernadine Dohrn, Mark Rudd (works for Obama’s campaign)and of course hundreds of Chicago political criminals like the Daley crime Family, Rezko, Emil Jones, Larry Walsh (Barns for Obama), Penny Prizker ad nauseum.

There is a guy named Jack Cahill is making a pretty compelling case that terrorist Ayers ghost-wrote at least one of Obama’s books.

I have one thing for all us to remember, PRAY HARD for Sarah. Satan would like nothing more than to destroy this woman. She is the mouthpiece of truth and a warrior of God. Satan will, with arm of the media will do all they can to destroy her. Pray for her safety.

Pray that the Lord would give her strength and that he would lay waste her enemies. Pray for an army of angels to surround and fortify Sarah and Senator McCain. Both of our candidates need our prayers. Satan would love to destroy our country and he has an army of his own in the democrats, voters, media and Hollywood and politicans on the left.

Ad About Obama/ Rezko/Ayers/Wrigiht from Judicial Confirmation Network

The conservative Judicial Confirmation Network is running a TV ad tying Obama to not just Rezko, but William Ayers (now using cartoons to spread his ideas) and the bombastic Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

"We don't know who Barack Obama would choose" as a Supreme Court justice, the ad says, "but we know this. He chose as one of his first financial backers a slumlord now convicted on 16 counts of corruption. Obama chose as an associate a man who helped to bomb the Pentagon and said he 'didn't do enough.' And Obama chose as his pastor a man who has blamed America for the 9/11 attacks."

Tony Rezko is not your typical middle American.
He’s Antoin Rezko, Muslim from Syria.
It is positively amazing, Guiness World Record worthy to note

How many times Obama’s path has accidentally stumbled upon Muslims.
His father and stepfather.
His half sister Maya , daughter of Lolo Soetoro, Indonesian Muslim.
All his college roommates were Muslims.
Both at Columbia and at Occidental College.
The same group of Muslims shepherded Obama on his grand tour of Pakistan.
His Kenyan relatives and those he campaigned for in Kenya-Raila Odingo.
And his financial patron-Antoin Rezko.
And that’s just the Arab Muslims.
The Black Muslims are another chapter.
As are ACORN and domestic terrorists.

Wild Thing's comment............

A lot of people are aware of these things and VERY concerned, and for good reason...we had 9-11 because of a series of muslim infiltrations thanks to the likes of Clinton, Gorelick, etc. so it makes perfect sense Obama has been groomed for a takeover from within.

Obama can deny all he wants but the truth exists and the more people that get informed about just the kind of dangerous man Obama is, with criminal friends and terrorists as his associations the better.

World War II Band of Brothers Meets Operation Iraqi Freedom Band of Brothers

Six World War II veterans featured in the TV mini-series “Band of Brothers” visited Camp Arifjan recently where they encountered a team of Operation Iraqi freedom soldiers eager to show off their “office.”

Former Easy Company Soldiers visited to meet and greet troops and sign autographs. Spc. Matt Klinkenberg and some of his buddies wanted to meet the men they saw in the 10-part series that chronicles the experiences and stories of Easy Company, 506th Regiment of the 101st Airborne Division.

“We’re hearing the stories from them in person that were portrayed on the show,” said Klinkenberg, a member of the 129th Transportation Company. “It’s cool meeting actual war heroes. It’s amazing.”

During the community center visit, gunner and truck commander Sgt. Daniel Moore and his buddies decided to act on an idea they had.

“At first we thought how cool it would be to get an M1151 gun truck up here with the .50-caliber machine gun on it. But then we remembered the arms room was not open, so we just brought the truck,” said Moore, a 23-year-old Chillicothe, Mo. native who’s assigned to 6 Transportation Battalion.

Thinking of the 80-plus-year-old war veterans navigating over gravel, the team drove the tactical truck to the fence closest to the building then arranged to have the fence unlocked driving it even closer. Eighty-six-year old South Philadelphia native “Wild Bill” Guarnere, who lost a leg in the Battle of the Bulge in Belgium, said he appreciated the gesture and complimented the growing crowd for their military service.

“We wanted them to see what 60 years difference in Army equipment brings and how we do things,” Moore said. The crew, who commonly spend seven hours a day for six to eight days inside the vehicle, showed off its up-armored protection platform that’s pre-manufactured to handle the warfighter’s defensive needs.
“Back home, we’d never get to meet these guys,” said 40-year-old Spc. Jeffrey Noble from Bloomfield, Iowa.

Spc. Deigo Dela Vega, a 1st Battalion, 148th Infantry, Ohio National Guardsman from Lima, Ohio, agreed.

“This is a really cool day for me.”


"Wild Bill" Guarnere, Edward "Babe" Heffron, Forrest Guth, Don Malarkey, Amos "Buck" Taylor and Clancy Lyall visit service members stop at Camp Arifjan, Kuwait Sept. 19, 2008 during their six day tour to visit deployed service members.

“Band of Brothers” Travel to Kuwait

Six members from the “Band of Brothers” visited service members in Kuwait, during a tour hosted by the United Services Organization Sept. 14-19, 2008.

The men, who served together in E Company, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division during World War II, traveled 12 hours from the U.S. to thank deployed Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines for their service to our country.

The members were “Wild Bill” Guarnere, Clancy Lyall, Amos “Buck” Taylor, Forrest Guth, Edward “Babe” Heffron and Don Malarkey.

They were scheduled to make a stop at Camp Buehring, Kuwait to meet with service members before moving forward to meet with troops in Iraq.

They began their tour at the Camp Buehring stage, but when it came time to move forward, they were not able to make their trip north due to inclement weather.

However, that did not keep them from fulfilling their goal of meeting with troops to show their appreciation for their service. Instead of going into Iraq, the USO made it possible for them to make various stops around military camps in Kuwait to talk to servic emembers.

“They are happy as long as they are seeing troops,” said Dana DePaul, tour producer, USO.
“It’s an honor to come and visit,” said Lyall. “We wanted to boost the morale and show that we care.”

Although it has been over a half century since these men made their contributions to the 101st and World War II, which were made famous through the HBO miniseries “Band of Brothers,” their stories and experiences are not much different from service members who serve in the military today.

“I am no different from any Soldier here,” said Lyall. “We just have good P.R. people,” he added jokingly.

Much like today, each servicemember served and fought for their country during a time of war. Some volunteered for different reasons and others were drafted.

But war-fighters of both eras faced their own unique challenges.

During World War II, some of the challenges lay in the fact that the fighting conditions were different, the climate was cooler and the technology was not as advanced.

Many challenges that today’s war fighters face involve improvised explosive devices and concerns of suicide bombers who threaten the lives and safety of service members and civilians.

These six men of E Company made the trip to show their appreciation for service members who are involved in the current war on terror and to let those service members know they understand some of the challenges that they face.

“We had an enemy,” said Guarnere, a staff sergeant with the unit. “Here, you don’t know who the enemy is.”

He also spoke of how, although it was extremely cold when they fought at Bastogne, he was amazed that service members fight in the hotter climates of the Middle East.

“The heat, the heat,” he said in an expression filled with much animation. “How you do it, I don’t know.”

During one of their final stops, at Camp Arifjan, Kuwait, many excited service members waited in a long line to shake hands, take pictures and show their appreciation for these six men.

“I think it’s amazing getting a chance to see real life heroes in person,” said Staff Sgt. Jarod Perkioniemi, public affairs, and a Farmington Hills, Mich., native. “It’s just a tribute that they came out to see us Soldiers.”

But these men were just as excited to see the troops who are currently making the same sacrifices they made over 60 years ago.


Wild Thing's comment.............

It is always an honor and privilege to post stories and photos of our troops serving our country. And to be able to post about the Band of Brothers trip to meet up with our troops is so very special.

Where the article speaks about “Wild Bill” Guarnere, who lost a leg in the Battle of the Bulge. I said an extra prayer for of thanks too for one of my Uncles that also lost his leg in the Battle of the Bulge. I wonder if they knew each other or if they ever met. The others in my family and Nicholas served in other conflicts and they would love this story too.

God bless all of these people and prayers for our country that these men and women are making so many sacrifices for each day.

4 Weathermen Terrorists Declare Support for Affirmative-Action Candidate Obama

4 Weathermen terrorists declare support for Obama


By Aaron Klein

The names of four former top leaders of the Weathermen terrorist organization are listed as signatories on an online petition calling for an "independent grassroots effort" to help strengthen Sen. Barack Obama's campaign.

The petition was initiated by Progressives for Obama, an independent organization acting to ensure the Illinois senator's election.

Progressives includes among its ranks many former members of the 1960s radical organization Students for a Democratic Society, or SDS, from which the Weathermen splintered, as well as current and former members of other radical organizations, such as the Communist Party USA and the Black Radical Congress.

"We agree that Barack Obama is our best option for president in 2008, and that an independent grassroots effort can help strengthen his campaign," states the online petition. "It can also strengthen the mandate for his programs for stopping war, promoting global justice and securing our rights, liberties, and economic well-being."

Among the names signed onto the petition are former Weathermen leaders Howard Machtinger, Jeff Jones, Steve Tappis and Mark Rudd.

Machtinger was a Weathermen founder and was co-author of the terror group's original mission statement, which called for "revolutionaries within the United States to wage a 'people's war' and attack from within. The government would fall and 'world communism' eventually would be instituted."

Jones, according to his own website, was "elected, along with (Weathermen terrorist) Bill Ayers and Mark Rudd, to the SDS national office. Then, in the spring of 1970, he disappeared. As a leader of the Weather Underground, Jeff evaded an intense FBI manhunt for more than a decade. In 1981, they finally got him. Twenty special agents battered down the door of the Bronx apartment where he was living with his wife and four-year-old son."

Jones' site says he traveled to Cambodia in 1966 to meet with high-level leaders of the anti-American National Liberation Front. In 1967 and 1968 he served as an SDS regional organizer for New York City.

Tappis was one of 11 people who signed the original Weathermen statement, which was infamously titled, "You Don't Need a Weatherman to Know Which Way the Wind Blows."

Rudd, a petition supporter as well as a main signatory to the Progressives for Obama group, was one of the main founders of the Weathermen terrorist organization. A biography published on his website explains Rudd worked to form the Weathermen as a radical alternative to the SDS and for white Americans to eject their "white skin privilege" and begin "armed struggle" against the U.S. government.

Rudd went underground in 1970, when a bomb exploded in a townhouse in Greenwich Village in New York City, killing three of his comrades. He lived for seven and a half years in hiding as a fugitive, finally surrendering in 1977, facing only low-level state charges after federal charges against Weathermen leaders had been dropped. He resurfaced as a teacher in New Mexico.

As late as 2005, Rudd wrote an editorial in the Los Angeles Times lamenting the state of the antiwar movement in the U.S.

"What's hard to understand – given the revelations about the rush to war, the use of torture and the loss of more than 2,000 soldiers – is why the antiwar movement isn't further along than it is," he wrote. "Given that President Bush is now talking about Iraq as only one skirmish in an unlimited struggle against a global Islamic enemy, a struggle comparable to the titanic, 40-year Cold War against communism, shouldn't a massive critique of the global war on terrorism already be underway?"

Former Weathermen member Mark Rudd

In the piece, Rudd condemned the Weathermen's decision to embark on an "armed-struggle," calling it "stupid" since the violent acts led to the group's demise. But he didn't condemn the terrorism itself, only its contribution to the downfall of the Weathermen.

All former Weathermen leaders who signed the pro-Obama petition worked closely for years with Weathermen terrorist William Ayers, whose association with Obama has generated controversy for the presidential candidate.

Trevor Louden of the New Zeal blog commented, "Clearly Bill Ayers and his wife, Bernardine Dohrn, are not the only former Weathermen backing Obama. Add their old comrades Jeff Jones, Howie Machtinger, Mark Rudd and even Steve Tappis to the mix and you are starting to get beyond coincidence. That former terrorists are working with Marxist groups to elect Barack Obama is beyond doubt."

I am no fan of O'Reilly, but every so often he does something that I can laugh at. He is furious, I think he must have lost some money in the stock market, just going by some of the things he has hinted at.

Nick and I saw this when it happened and we were laughing at how Barney was trying to say how innocent he is. Frank is soooo pathetic.

Brothers Meet at 20,000 Feet

Maj. Eric Moraes, B-1B Lancer pilot for the 379th Air Expeditionary Wing, stands in front of his aircraft. Moraes was recently reunited with his brother 20,000 feet over Afghanistan during a combat sortie Sept. 10, 2008. His brother, Capt. Jason Moraes, 380 AEW, flew the KC-10 Extender aircraft that refueled the B-1B. The brothers had been apart for a year when they met in the skies above the AOR for the 10-minute reunion.

Brothers Meet at 20,000 Feet

By Master Sgt. Jeff Loftin
379th Air Expeditionary Wing

Public Affairs

Family reunions are always special, but for two brothers stationed at different bases in Southwest Asia their meeting at 20,000 feet over a combat zone is even more memorable.

During the encounter Sept. 10, Capt. Jason Moraes, a KC-10 Extender pilot for the 380th Air Expeditionary Wing, refueled his older brother's B-1B Lancer aircraft from the 379th Air Expeditionary Wing.

"It's a very rare event to join up with your brother at 20,000 feet over Afghanistan," said Maj. Eric Moraes. "In the area of responsibility you're never quite sure which tanker will refuel you due to the fluidity of operations on the ground. To be more efficient and effective, the [Combined Air and Space Operations Center] is usually moving players around to best support the ground commanders."

The reunion occurred on Captain Jason Moraes first combat sortie in the AOR, and his brother's last.

"I was supposed to go home in July, but they kept extending me," said Major Eric Moraes, who has been deployed since June. "If I had left then I would have missed this opportunity."

His younger brother called him the weekend prior to the flight upon his arrival to the AOR. During the conversation Moraes said he was flying Sept. 10, 2008. He didn't realize at the time how his brother would use that information.

"I told the schedulers that my brother is flying Wednesday night and I would like to be on the sortie that is supposed to refuel a B-1," said Captain Moraes, deployed from Travis Air Force Base, Calif. "I have to thank the KC-10 schedulers. They did an awesome job coordinating it."

The major did not know his brother had coordinated their rendezvous, but knew there was a chance they could meet.

"When I went to mission planning I saw there were two KC-10s we were going to rendezvous with," said the bomber pilot. "I thought 'I wonder if he is on one of them?' There was no time to call or e-mail him, so I thought 'I guess I'll find out.' We came up to our first tanker kind of at the beginning of our time in country. It wasn't him. When it came time for our second tanker, we made an initial call about 30 minutes out to get everything straight - altitudes, air speeds, rendezvous point. Low and behold there's my little brother on the radio. It was a pretty proud moment for me. There is my little brother flying over Afghanistan."

The moment was also exciting for his younger brother.

"I recognized my brother's voice instantly," he said. "It was pretty sweet to hear him on the radio."

Once the aircraft were joined for refueling, the brothers who had been apart for about a year were able to talk for about 10 minutes over an interphone between the aircraft.

"Being spread out makes family reunions kind of tough," said Major Moraes, deployed from Ellsworth AFB, S.D., "but when we do get together it's always good."

Reunions become more difficult to plan with the third sibling of the family also flying tankers for the Air Force. The oldest brother, Maj. Steven Moraes, flies KC-135 Stratotankers for the National Guard's 108th Air Refueling Wing at McGuire AFB, N.J. His service impacted his brothers' career choice.

"I decided to become a pilot since my older brothers enjoy being Air Force pilots," said Captain Jason Moraes. "Their stories on what they have done motivated me to become a pilot. From listening to their experiences, I wanted to follow in their footsteps."

The youngest brother said the best part of them all being pilots is the advice.

"I still look up to them, not only as my brothers, but as trustworthy pilots from whom I can gain experience and knowledge," he said. "Also, having Eric as a bomber pilot, I can hopefully get debriefed on what the tanker does well and what it needs to work on so I can pass along the information to my crew and fellow tanker pilots. I will also pass along the tanker community's way of thinking so that he can get a better idea of my side of the house. This will hopefully ensure that we are finding the niche to make sure operations go as smoothly as possible."

Both Major and Captain Moraes are proud to be serving in the Global War on Terror.

"I want to support the combat aircraft and the combat troops on the ground," said the younger brother. "I know I do not drop bombs or provide close air support, but I feel I am a key player by providing the gas for those, like my brother, who do. My brother, as well as the other fighter, attack and bomber pilots, plays a pivotal role in allowing the troops on the ground to do their jobs."

Their service to the troops on the ground provided them a rare opportunity for the unusual reunion.

"Being able to be refueled by my brother over the skies of Afghanistan had to be one of the highlights of my 12-year career," said Major Moraes.

Wild Thing's comment............

These brothers will remember this for the rest of their lives. I am so glad they got to meet like this. God bless our troops, they deserve the best Commander In Chief possible. I pray they are never exposed to the likes of B.Hussein Obama that has no concept of what our military is about, his vote against the war and his attitude toward General Petraeus is unforgivable.

Reestablishing ‘rule of Law’ in Al Akad Neighborhood

Contractors arrive at the at the Al Akad station build site, Sept. 27, 2008, to conduct a ground survey and to estimate for the future construction of the Al Akad Iraqi police station. In past years, the station was destroyed by criminal attacks. Iraqi police and coalition force Police Transition Teams from the 340th Military Police Company, 18th MP Brigade and Multi-National Division - Baghdad, are in the process of reestablishing law and order in the area to protect the citizens within the Al Akad neighborhood and the new station build will accommodate the IP forces that will do so.

Iraqi contractors conduct a site survey of the landscape at the Al Akad station build site, Sept. 27, 2008. The station, which is in the process of being rebuilt, was destroyed by criminal attacks in past years. Iraqi police and coalition force Police Transition Teams are in the process of reestablishing law and order in the area to protect the citizens within the Al Akad neighborhood.

Reestablishing ‘rule of Law’ in Al Akad Neighborhood

By Sgt. Daniel Blottenberger

18th Military Police

BAGHDAD – A black kite rises to the sky off in the distance as a convoy of military police Soldiers travel down one of the most dangerous routes in Baghdad.

“They know we are here,” said Staff Sgt. Darrell Bamberg, a squad leader with the 340th Military Police Company, 18th Military Police Brigade, Multi-National Division – Baghdad, as his eyes scanned through his Gumvee window, Sept. 27, 2008, at the black kites with the assumption criminal groups were signaling the arrival of coalition forces along the route as they entered the Al Akad neighborhood.
“The guys over here don’t like us at all,” said Bamberg, referring to the criminal groups in the area of the proposed building site of a new IP station.

The surveying of a new IP station in the Al Akad neighborhood was the squad’s mission for the day, as well as escorting an Iraqi police general and several contractors to a new station build site in northeast Baghdad to conduct a site survey.

As the squad traveled the route, more black kites popped up parallel to their position and went down as they passed by en route to their destination. The squad is part of the 340th MP Co., and is an Army Reserve unit based out of New York.

“There are a lot of reports of criminal groups in the area,” said Bamberg, a native of the Bronx, N.Y., referring to an area that borders Sadr City where much of the violence that was once contained in Sadr City has crept into.

Upon arriving at the future build site, the Soldiers were met by many children – some asking for water and candy. Soldiers, with comforting smiles, handed out as much as they had available.

As the children smiled and ran away, two more children approached and set sail to a black kite that was within viewing distance of the convoy, which was parked at the remains of a former IP station.

The unit’s plan is to rebuild the Al Akad station to establish an IP force in the area, which will help to reestablish and provide rule of law for the citizens against criminal groups suspected of moving into the area.

“Our goal is to make this area secure for the citizens of Al Akad,” said Maj. Lawrence Clossum, commander, 340th MP Co., who is a native of St. Louis. “We are beginning the process of rebuilding a new station in Al Akad that will provide rule of law for the citizens of Al Akad.”

The Al Akad station existed at one point but was destroyed by criminal group attacks on the station in earlier months.

“We will have to level what’s left of the place and rebuild the station from scratch,” said Clossum, looking at the remains of the perimeter of the former IP station.

The station would be a symbol of perseverance to the criminals in the area, he added, and will demonstrate that the IP forces have the capability to protect its citizens and not back down to anyone as they rebuild their nation.

“We cannot let the criminals think they have won the fight here,” said Clossum. “It will take some time, but we will rebuild this station.”

The construction evaluation crew gathered the needed information at the site and the group loaded back into the humvees and journeyed back from where they came leaving the black kites waving in the sky behind them.

The mission was completed for the day, which signified one of the many opportunities for the Iraqi police and coalition forces as the combined forces strive to reestablish the police forces in the area to help rid the neighborhood of crime.

Wild Thing's comment...........

“We cannot let the criminals think they have won the fight here,” said Clossum. “It will take some time, but we will rebuild this station.”

I agree we cannot let them win or even think they have won.

U.S. House As Bailout Bill Passes ~ Barney Frank Can Redecorate His Basement

Listening to the House speeches, trying to convince us this is for our own good, reminds me of this:

Joe Barton (R-TX) rises in opposition to rule and bill.

Lloyd Doggett (D-TX) rises in opposition.

Mike Pence (R-IN) rises in opposition.

Mike Pence: LOVE HIM! He's the true maverick in the GOP! Pence arguing in favor of the free market. Quoting Reagan heavily. Pence has gotten it from the beginning. Pence is the future of the Republican Party. He’s a superstar.

How nice......NOT! The children’s wooden arrow makers, rum manufacturers in VI and Puerto Rico and Hollywood moguls (who stand to gain $47 million A YEAR for the next 10 years from the porked up Senate “emergency rescue” bill. -- Wild Thing

Fear Mongering exposed by Mr. Sherman on CSPAN

Peter DeFazio (D-OR) rises in opposition.

DeMint said, they are under a lot of pressure I just saw Sherm (D) CA on Fox. He calls this “lipstick and pork on a pig!” He is not voting for it. He said Paulson made it look like the end of the world is here if this does not pass.

Get your plate and silverware out and get ready to eat your crap sandwich. And keep your plate and silverware out, because this isn't the first one we are going to be required to eat. -- Wild Thing

This is 451 pages of socialism wrapped in pork.

176 Republicans voted AGAINST the rule. Not sure what’s going on.

Barney Frank won

172Y 157N

So they voted to we’ll have about 90 minutes of debate


Calling the house to order. Rangle is up.

Speaker calling the house to order....protesters removed from the House

Rangel ripping the Bush administration.

Rangel: “We have a political gun at our heads.”

House still not in order. Speaker getting irate.

Rangel’s speech was totally boring.

Jim McCrery (R-LA) rises. Says it might be his last speech.

Rangel wants to say goodbye to Jim McCrery. Ugh.

Blunt’s up. We all know where he stands.

The notion of taxing the middle class to bail out the middle class is a nonsequitur. We are bailing out Wall Street let there be no question about it. They are doing this to us not because they need it, but because as they just proved, they can.
It's just another profitable trade. Down you lose, up we win. And all these folks are too dumb to see it happening. --Wild Thing

Pete Stark (D-CA) rises in opposition.

Howard Coble (R-NC) rises in SUPPORT. This is a change. He voted no on Monday. He said the phone calls made the difference....pressure was on

Sounds like the lobbyists were organized with the phone calls.

Devin Nunes (R-CA) rises in opposition. Nunes: “If the secretary wants to run a hedge fund, he should go back to Wall Street.”

Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) rises in opposition.

Zach Wamp (R-TN) is another switching to AYE. Zach Wamp says that nobody in East Tennessee hates the fact that he is voting for this more than he does.

Barrett (R-SC) switchover

Honestly, it is a strange feeling, listening to Republicans give the, “I know how awful this is, but...” speeches. It allows me to realize that the ones making those speeches, have been making them all along - I just did not hear them. That was MY mistake, and it was one that allowed them to remain.
It also reveals the TRUE conservatives, who I am SO thankful for, and will give my full support no matter which state they reside in. No doubt, we have a VERY tough job ahead of us, but conservatives are up for it . Barney Frank’s ass has never been kissed so many time in one morning. -- Wild Thing

Second vote so once again Pence speaking now. Still opposed! Good for him!

Barbara Lee - “I will continue to fight for a direct economic stimulus package that was not included in this bill.”

What the hell do you call this?

Debate time is wrapping up. Hoyer doing a hard sell.

Unfortunately Bush put conservatives in a terrible position, which he has done on economic issues a lot in his Presidency. They are between a rock and a hard place. If we had a real conservative like Ronaldus Magnus at the helm, they wouldn’t be put in the position of having to stand up to a liberal Democrat Treasury Secretary who is unquestioningly supported by a Republican President. -- Wild Thing

Well, it must be over....Pelosi's up

Most conservatives will hold the line. But since the Dems and the RINOs want it, to that's the way it will be. We didn't cave, despite the entreaties of Bush, McConnell, Boehner and Blunt. I think 135 Republicans will still still say NO to this monstrosity. God bless our brave conservative House Republicans who continue to exhibit integrity of the highest order and will not fold like a cheap suit.-- Wild Thing

Pelosi speaking...much more low-key and conciliatory than on Monday ---- augh!

Pelosi says “this is ONLY THE BEGINNING”

The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public's money. ---Alexis de Tocqueville

Dems overwhelmingly in favor so far...GOP slight majority for

IT’S TIME TO THROW THE TEA IN THE HARBOR. The vast majority (77%?) of the American population is opposed this. These people in Congress are *supposed* to be voting representative to our wishes. Clearly THEY ARE NOT doing that. Our founding fathers had a phrase for this. They called it “TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION”! I fear, *fear*, that we are fast approaching a time of national revolution. I’m holding my breath hoping that a majority in Congress understand the ramifications and yet kill this beast.--- Wild Thing

Bailout passed.....round of applause heard on the floor......Off to President Bush for his signature.

Dem 172 Y 63 N
GOP 91 Y 108 N

Total vote 263 Y 171 N

Roll Call Vote No. 681 on voting passage of the Bill.

I’m stunned- really I am. not that it passed- but by the margins of the GOP who caved. The politicians no longer represent the American people. -- Wild Thing

God help our nation, May God have mercy. This is a day we’ll never forget. The last stronghold of capitalism is now that much closer to socialism....hell this IS socialism! -- Wild Thing

She is beautiful, smart and sharp soooo sharp, I LOVE how she hit Biden with zingers........ She zapped him with a twinkle in her eyes and a smile on her face. She was a natural at this, and excelled, not nervous and you could see her smile grow as Biden talked like she could hardly wait to come back and say something.

Sarah totally won. She was so down to earth. She looked all of America straight in the eye when she spoke. And did it in a no nonsense way and WON on every answer, every reply.

Joe Biden didn't know what hit him.

“I like to talk to the American people without the filter of the mainstream media....”


Brilliant! Stunning! Fabulous! I cried at her closing statement. Lord, thank you for hearing our prayers.

Gov. Palin has SURPRISED Joe Biden with her eloquence, knowledge, and sheer polital cunning WHILE she is APPEALING to the American people.

She did well on foreign policy.

Did anyone else hear Biden when he kept doing DEEP sighs??????????? I think that is from stress, he is really stressed out from this.

"Say it an't so Joe".....LOL oh my gawd she said that. Reagan did that too. hahahhaha
Sarah Palin invoked REAGAN!
She got him several times:

Biden LIED!
General David McKiernan, commander of NATO Forces in Afghanistan met with the President yesterday and the General recommended a surge in that country and President Bush approved.

Let me say that again, Joe--you LIED!

“There’s far to much pointing fingers and looking backwards for us to believe that you really represent change” --Sarah Palin quote

She unnerved him and she is cool, calm, and collected. What she did, was one of the most awesome ways to attack imo, hit hard but bring the other person into it so they have to agree in part with what she said making Biden lsow up for what he is. See in the video how he nods and has to agree with her, that killed him to have to do that. heh heh She had the ammo because she knew what Biden had said in the past and she made sure she used that ammo at just the right time. Tah dah!

She is informed, articulate, and most of all, she's herself.

If you would like to read or copy the transcript of the debate .....PLEASE CLICK AND POST WILL OPEN FOR YOU.....

Following is a transcript of the vice-presidential debate between Senator Joseph R. Biden Jr. and Gov. Sarah Palin in St. Louis, as recorded by CQ Transcriptions:

Whooo Hooo! She quoted the “Air Raiding Villages comment” that Obama had made.

Sarah: "We've got to win in Iraq." "We've got to grow our military." "We must defeat Al-Queada."

Biden: "We've got to have timelines. We will end this war."

Sarah: "Your plan is a white flag of surrender in Iraq. You guys opposed the surge."


Loved the “white flag of surrender” comment! I started clapping! Joe blew it on the troop funding comment...good,McCain voted NO because he did NOT want timelines! And that was the deal in the bill about funding the troops. McCain wanted it out of there.

"PALIN: I'm still on the tax thing because I want to correct you on that again. And I want to let you know what I did as a mayor and as a governor. And I may not answer the questions that either the moderator or you want to hear..."

GWEN IFILL: Good evening from Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri. I'm Gwen Ifill of "The NewsHour" and "Washington Week" on PBS. Welcome to the first and the only 2008 vice presidential debate between the Republican nominee, Governor Sarah Palin of Alaska, and the Democratic nominee, Joe Biden of Delaware.

The Commission on Presidential Debates is the sponsor of this event and the two remaining presidential debates. Tonight's discussion will cover a wide range of topics, including domestic and foreign policy matters.

It will be divided roughly into five-minute segments. Each candidate will have 90 seconds to respond to a direct question and then an additional two minutes for rebuttal and follow-up. The order has been determined by a coin toss.

The specific subjects and questions were chosen by me and have not been shared or cleared with anyone on the campaigns or on the commission. The audience here in the hall has promised to remain very polite, no cheers, applause, no untoward outbursts, except right at this minute now, as we welcome Governor Palin and Senator Biden.


PALIN: Nice to meet you.

BIDEN: It's a pleasure.

PALIN: Hey, can I call you Joe?


PALIN: Thank you.

Thank you, Gwen. Thank you. Thank you.

IFILL: Welcome to you both.

As we have determined by a coin toss, the first question will go to Senator Biden, with a 90-second follow-up from Governor Palin.

The House of Representatives this week passed a bill, a big bailout bill -- or didn't pass it, I should say. The Senate decided to pass it, and the House is wrestling with it still tonight.

As America watches these things happen on Capitol Hill, Senator Biden, was this the worst of Washington or the best of Washington that we saw play out?

BIDEN: Let me begin by thanking you, Gwen, for hosting this.

And, Governor, it's a pleasure to meet you, and it's a pleasure to be with you.

I think it's neither the best or worst of Washington, but it's evidence of the fact that the economic policies of the last eight years have been the worst economic policies we've ever had. As a consequence, you've seen what's happened on Wall Street.

If you need any more proof positive of how bad the economic theories have been, this excessive deregulation, the failure to oversee what was going on, letting Wall Street run wild, I don't think you needed any more evidence than what you see now.

So the Congress has been put -- Democrats and Republicans have been put in a very difficult spot. But Barack Obama laid out four basic criteria for any kind of rescue plan here.

He, first of all, said there has to be oversight. We're not going to write any check to anybody unless there's oversight for the -- of the secretary of Treasury.

He secondly said you have to focus on homeowners and folks on Main Street.

Thirdly, he said that you have to treat the taxpayers like investors in this case.

And, lastly, what you have to do is make sure that CEOs don't benefit from this, because this could end up, in the long run, people making money off of this rescue plan.

And so, as a consequence of that, it brings us back to maybe the fundamental disagreement between Governor Palin and me and Senator McCain and Barack Obama, and that is that the -- we're going to fundamentally change the focus of the economic policy.

We're going to focus on the middle class, because it's -- when the middle class is growing, the economy grows and everybody does well, not just focus on the wealthy and corporate America.

IFILL: Thank you, Senator.

Governor Palin?

PALIN: Thank you, Gwen. And I thank the commission, also. I appreciate this privilege of being able to be here and speak with Americans.

You know, I think a good barometer here, as we try to figure out has this been a good time or a bad time in America's economy, is go to a kid's soccer game on Saturday, and turn to any parent there on the sideline and ask them, "How are you feeling about the economy?"

And I'll bet you, you're going to hear some fear in that parent's voice, fear regarding the few investments that some of us have in the stock market. Did we just take a major hit with those investments?

Fear about, how are we going to afford to send our kids to college? A fear, as small-business owners, perhaps, how we're going to borrow any money to increase inventory or hire more people.

The barometer there, I think, is going to be resounding that our economy is hurting and the federal government has not provided the sound oversight that we need and that we deserve, and we need reform to that end.

Now, John McCain thankfully has been one representing reform. Two years ago, remember, it was John McCain who pushed so hard with the Fannie Mae (NYSE:FNM) and Freddie Mac (NYSE:FRE) reform measures. He sounded that warning bell.

People in the Senate with him, his colleagues, didn't want to listen to him and wouldn't go towards that reform that was needed then. I think that the alarm has been heard, though, and there will be that greater oversight, again thanks to John McCain's bipartisan efforts that he was so instrumental in bringing folks together over this past week, even suspending his own campaign to make sure he was putting excessive politics aside and putting the country first.

IFILL: You both would like to be vice president.

Senator Biden, how, as vice president, would you work to shrink this gap of polarization which has sprung up in Washington, which you both have spoken about here tonight?

BIDEN: Well, that's what I've done my whole career, Gwen, on very, very controversial issues, from dealing with violence against women, to putting 100,000 police officers on the street, to trying to get something done about the genocide in -- that was going on in Bosnia.

And I -- I have been able to reach across the aisle. I think it's fair to say that I have almost as many friends on the Republican side of the aisle as I do the Democratic side of the aisle.

But am I able to respond to -- are we able to stay on the -- on the topic?

IFILL: You may, if you like.

BIDEN: Yes, well, you know, until two weeks ago -- it was two Mondays ago John McCain said at 9 o'clock in the morning that the fundamentals of the economy were strong. Two weeks before that, he said George -- we've made great economic progress under George Bush's policies.

Nine o'clock, the economy was strong. Eleven o'clock that same day, two Mondays ago, John McCain said that we have an economic crisis.

That doesn't make John McCain a bad guy, but it does point out he's out of touch. Those folks on the sidelines knew that two months ago.

IFILL: Governor Palin, you may respond.

PALIN: John McCain, in referring to the fundamental of our economy being strong, he was talking to and he was talking about the American workforce. And the American workforce is the greatest in this world, with the ingenuity and the work ethic that is just entrenched in our workforce. That's a positive. That's encouragement. And that's what John McCain meant.

Now, what I've done as a governor and as a mayor is (inaudible) I've had that track record of reform. And I've joined this team that is a team of mavericks with John McCain, also, with his track record of reform, where we're known for putting partisan politics aside to just get the job done.

Now, Barack Obama, of course, he's pretty much only voted along his party lines. In fact, 96 percent of his votes have been solely along party line, not having that proof for the American people to know that his commitment, too, is, you know, put the partisanship, put the special interests aside, and get down to getting business done for the people of America.

We're tired of the old politics as usual. And that's why, with all due respect, I do respect your years in the U.S. Senate, but I think Americans are craving something new and different and that new energy and that new commitment that's going to come with reform.

I think that's why we need to send the maverick from the Senate and put him in the White House, and I'm happy to join him there.

IFILL: Governor, Senator, neither of you really answered that last question about what you would do as vice president. I'm going to come back to that...


... throughout the evening to try to see if we can look forward, as well.

Now, let's talk about -- the next question is to talk about the subprime lending meltdown.

Who do you think was at fault? I start with you, Governor Palin. Was it the greedy lenders? Was it the risky home-buyers who shouldn't have been buying a home in the first place? And what should you be doing about it?

PALIN: Darn right it was the predator lenders, who tried to talk Americans into thinking that it was smart to buy a $300,000 house if we could only afford a $100,000 house. There was deception there, and there was greed and there is corruption on Wall Street. And we need to stop that.

Again, John McCain and I, that commitment that we have made, and we're going to follow through on that, getting rid of that corruption.

PALIN: One thing that Americans do at this time, also, though, is let's commit ourselves just every day American people, Joe Six Pack, hockey moms across the nation, I think we need to band together and say never again. Never will we be exploited and taken advantage of again by those who are managing our money and loaning us these dollars. We need to make sure that we demand from the federal government strict oversight of those entities in charge of our investments and our savings and we need also to not get ourselves in debt. Let's do what our parents told us before we probably even got that first credit card. Don't live outside of our means. We need to make sure that as individuals we're taking personal responsibility through all of this. It's not the American peoples fault that the economy is hurting like it is, but we have an opportunity to learn a heck of a lot of good lessons through this and say never again will we be taken advantage of.

IFILL: Senator?

BIDEN: Well Gwen, two years ago Barack Obama warned about the sub prime mortgage crisis. John McCain said shortly after that in December he was surprised there was a sub prime mortgage problem. John McCain while Barack Obama was warning about what we had to do was literally giving an interview to "The Wall Street Journal" saying that I'm always for cutting regulations. We let Wall Street run wild. John McCain and he's a good man, but John McCain thought the answer is that tried and true Republican response, deregulate, deregulate.

So what you had is you had overwhelming "deregulation." You had actually the belief that Wall Street could self-regulate itself. And while Barack Obama was talking about reinstating those regulations, John on 20 different occasions in the previous year and a half called for more deregulation. As a matter of fact, John recently wrote an article in a major magazine saying that he wants to do for the health care industry deregulate it and let the free market move like he did for the banking industry.

So deregulation was the promise. And guess what? Those people who say don't go into debt, they can barely pay to fill up their gas tank. I was recently at my local gas station and asked a guy named Joey Danco (ph). I said Joey, how much did it cost to fill your tank? You know what his answer was? He said I don't know, Joe. I never have enough money to do it. The middle class needs relief, tax relief. They need it now. They need help now. The focus will change with Barack Obama.

IFILL: Governor, please if you want to respond to what he said about Senator McCain's comments about health care?

PALIN: I would like to respond about the tax increases. We can speak in agreement here that darn right we need tax relief for Americans so that jobs can be created here. Now, Barack Obama and Senator Biden also voted for the largest tax increases in U.S. history. Barack had 94 opportunities to side on the people's side and reduce taxes and 94 times he voted to increase taxes or not support a tax reduction, 94 times.

Now, that's not what we need to create jobs and really bolster and heat up our economy. We do need the private sector to be able to keep more of what we earn and produce. Government is going to have to learn to be more efficient and live with less if that's what it takes to reign in the government growth that we've seen today. But we do need tax relief and Barack Obama even supported increasing taxes as late as last year for those families making only $42,000 a year. That's a lot of middle income average American families to increase taxes on them. I think that is the way to kill jobs and to continue to harm our economy.

IFILL: Senator?

BIDEN: The charge is absolutely not true. Barack Obama did not vote to raise taxes. The vote she's referring to, John McCain voted the exact same way. It was a budget procedural vote. John McCain voted the same way. It did not raise taxes. Number two, using the standard that the governor uses, John McCain voted 477 times to raise taxes. It's a bogus standard it but if you notice, Gwen, the governor did not answer the question about deregulation, did not answer the question of defending John McCain about not going along with the deregulation, letting Wall Street run wild. He did support deregulation almost across the board. That's why we got into so much trouble.

IFILL: Would you like to have an opportunity to answer that before we move on?

PALIN: I'm still on the tax thing because I want to correct you on that again. And I want to let you know what I did as a mayor and as a governor. And I may not answer the questions that either the moderator or you want to hear, but I'm going to talk straight to the American people and let them know my track record also. As mayor, every year I was in office I did reduce taxes. I eliminated personal property taxes and eliminated small business inventory taxes and as governor we suspended our state fuel tax. We did all of those things knowing that that is how our economy would be heated up. Now, as for John McCain's adherence to rules and regulations and pushing for even harder and tougher regulations, that is another thing that he is known for though. Look at the tobacco industry. Look at campaign finance reform.

IFILL: OK, our time is up here. We've got to move to the next question. Senator Biden, we want to talk about taxes, let's talk about taxes. You proposed raising taxes on people who earn over $250,000 a year. The question for you is, why is that not class warfare and the same question for you, Governor Palin, is you have proposed a tax employer health benefits which some studies say would actually throw five million more people onto the roles of the uninsured. I want to know why that isn't taking things out on the poor, starting with you, Senator Biden.

BIDEN: Well Gwen, where I come from, it's called fairness, just simple fairness. The middle class is struggling. The middle class under John McCain's tax proposal, 100 million families, middle class families, households to be precise, they got not a single change, they got not a single break in taxes. No one making less than $250,000 under Barack Obama's plan will see one single penny of their tax raised whether it's their capital gains tax, their income tax, investment tax, any tax. And 95 percent of the people in the United States of America making less than $150,000 will get a tax break.

Now, that seems to me to be simple fairness. The economic engine of America is middle class. It's the people listening to this broadcast. When you do well, America does well. Even the wealthy do well. This is not punitive. John wants to add $300 million, billion in new tax cuts per year for corporate America and the very wealthy while giving virtually nothing to the middle class. We have a different value set. The middle class is the economic engine. It's fair. They deserve the tax breaks, not the super wealthy who are doing pretty well. They don't need any more tax breaks. And by the way, they'll pay no more than they did under Ronald Reagan.

IFILL: Governor?

PALIN: I do take issue with some of the principle there with that redistribution of wealth principle that seems to be espoused by you. But when you talk about Barack's plan to tax increase affecting only those making $250,000 a year or more, you're forgetting millions of small businesses that are going to fit into that category. So they're going to be the ones paying higher taxes thus resulting in fewer jobs being created and less productivity.

Now you said recently that higher taxes or asking for higher taxes or paying higher taxes is patriotic. In the middle class of America which is where Todd and I have been all of our lives, that's not patriotic. Patriotic is saying, government, you know, you're not always the solution. In fact, too often you're the problem so, government, lessen the tax burden and on our families and get out of the way and let the private sector and our families grow and thrive and prosper. An increased tax formula that Barack Obama is proposing in addition to nearly a trillion dollars in new spending that he's proposing is the backwards way of trying to grow our economy.

IFILL: Governor, are you interested in defending Senator McCain's health care plan?

PALIN: I am because he's got a good health care plan that is detailed. And I want to give you a couple details on that. He's proposing a $5,000 tax credit for families so that they can get out there and they can purchase their own health care coverage. That's a smart thing to do. That's budget neutral. That doesn't cost the government anything as opposed to Barack Obama's plan to mandate health care coverage and have universal government run program and unless you're pleased with the way the federal government has been running anything lately, I don't think that it's going to be real pleasing for Americans to consider health care being taken over by the feds. But a $5,000 health care credit through our income tax that's budget neutral. That's going to help. And he also wants to erase those artificial lines between states so that through competition, we can cross state lines and if there's a better plan offered somewhere else, we would be able to purchase that. So affordability and accessibility will be the keys there with that $5,000 tax credit also being offered.

IFILL: Thank you, governor. Senator?

BIDEN: Gwen, I don't know where to start. We don't call a redistribution in my neighborhood Scranton, Claymont, Wilmington, the places I grew up, to give the fair to say that not giving Exxon Mobil (NYSE:XOM) another $4 billion tax cut this year as John calls for and giving it to middle class people to be able to pay to get their kids to college, we don't call that redistribution. We call that fairness number one. Number two fact, 95 percent of the small businesses in America, their owners make less than $250,000 a year. They would not get one single solitary penny increase in taxes, those small businesses.

BIDEN: Now, with regard to the -- to the health care plan, you know, it's with one hand you giveth, the other you take it. You know how Barack Obama -- excuse me, do you know how John McCain pays for his $5,000 tax credit you're going to get, a family will get?

He taxes as income every one of you out there, every one of you listening who has a health care plan through your employer. That's how he raises $3.6 trillion, on your -- taxing your health care benefit to give you a $5,000 plan, which his Web site points out will go straight to the insurance company.

And then you're going to have to replace a $12,000 -- that's the average cost of the plan you get through your employer -- it costs $12,000. You're going to have to pay -- replace a $12,000 plan, because 20 million of you are going to be dropped. Twenty million of you will be dropped.

So you're going to have to place -- replace a $12,000 plan with a $5,000 check you just give to the insurance company. I call that the "Ultimate Bridge to Nowhere."

IFILL: Thank you, Senator.



... I want to get -- try to get you both to answer a question that neither of your principals quite answered when my colleague, Jim Lehrer, asked it last week, starting with you, Senator Biden.

What promises -- given the events of the week, the bailout plan, all of this, what promises have you and your campaigns made to the American people that you're not going to be able to keep?

BIDEN: Well, the one thing we might have to slow down is a commitment we made to double foreign assistance. We'll probably have to slow that down.

We also are going to make sure that we do not go forward with the tax cut proposals of the administration -- of John McCain, the existing one for people making over $250,000, which is $130 billion this year alone.

We're not going to support the $300 billion tax cut that they have for corporate America and the very wealthy. We're not going to support another $4 billion tax cut for ExxonMobil.

And what we're not going to also hold up on, Gwen, is we cannot afford to hold up on providing for incentives for new jobs by an energy policy, creating new jobs.

We cannot slow up on education, because that's the engine that is going to give us the economic growth and competitiveness that we need.

And we are not going to slow up on the whole idea of providing for affordable health care for Americans, none of which, when we get to talk about health care, is as my -- as the governor characterized -- characterized.

The bottom line here is that we are going to, in fact, eliminate those wasteful spending that exist in the budget right now, a number of things I don't have time, because the light is blinking, that I won't be able to mention, but one of which is the $100 billion tax dodge that, in fact, allows people to take their post office box off- shore, avoid taxes.

I call that unpatriotic. I call that unpatriotic.

IFILL: Governor?

BIDEN: That's what I'm talking about.

IFILL: Governor?

PALIN: Well, the nice thing about running with John McCain is I can assure you he doesn't tell one thing to one group and then turns around and tells something else to another group, including his plans that will make this bailout plan, this rescue plan, even better.

I want to go back to the energy plan, though, because this is -- this is an important one that Barack Obama, he voted for in '05.

Senator Biden, you would remember that, in that energy plan that Obama voted for, that's what gave those oil companies those big tax breaks. Your running mate voted for that.

You know what I had to do in the state of Alaska? I had to take on those oil companies and tell them, "No," you know, any of the greed there that has been kind of instrumental, I guess, in their mode of operation, that wasn't going to happen in my state.

And that's why Tillerson at Exxon and Mulva at ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP) , bless their hearts, they're doing what they need to do, as corporate CEOs, but they're not my biggest fans, because what I had to do up there in Alaska was to break up a monopoly up there and say, you know, the people are going to come first and we're going to make sure that we have value given to the people of Alaska with those resources.

And those huge tax breaks aren't coming to the big multinational corporations anymore, not when it adversely affects the people who live in a state and, in this case, in a country who should be benefiting at the same time. So it was Barack Obama who voted for that energy plan that gave those tax breaks to the oil companies that I then had to turn around, as a governor of an energy-producing state, and kind of undo in my own area of expertise, and that's energy.

IFILL: So, Governor, as vice president, there's nothing that you have promised as a candidate that you would -- that you wouldn't take off the table because of this financial crisis we're in?

PALIN: There is not. And how long have I been at this, like five weeks? So there hasn't been a whole lot that I've promised, except to do what is right for the American people, put government back on the side of the American people, stop the greed and corruption on Wall Street.

And the rescue plan has got to include that massive oversight that Americans are expecting and deserving. And I don't believe that John McCain has made any promise that he would not be able to keep, either.

IFILL: Senator?

BIDEN: Again, let me -- let's talk about those tax breaks. Barack Obama -- Obama voted for an energy bill because, for the first time, it had real support for alternative energy. (OOTC:AEGC)

When there were separate votes on eliminating the tax breaks for the oil companies, Barack Obama voted to eliminate them. John did not.

And let me just ask a rhetorical question: If John really wanted to eliminate them, why is he adding to his budget an additional $4 billion in tax cuts for ExxonMobils of the world that, in fact, already have made $600 billion since 2001?

And, look, I agree with the governor. She imposed a windfall profits tax up there in Alaska. That's what Barack Obama and I want to do.

We want to be able to do for all of you Americans, give you back $1,000 bucks, like she's been able to give back money to her folks back there.

But John McCain will not support a windfall profits tax. They've made $600 billion since 2001, and John McCain wants to give them, all by itself -- separate, no additional bill, all by itself -- another $4 billion tax cut.

If that is not proof of what I say, I'm not sure what can be. So I hope the governor is able to convince John McCain to support our windfall profits tax, which she supported in Alaska, and I give her credit for it.

IFILL: Next question, Governor Palin, still on the economy. Last year, Congress passed a bill that would make it more difficult for debt-strapped mortgage-holders to declare bankruptcy, to get out from under that debt. This is something that John McCain supported. Would you have?

PALIN: Yes, I would have. But here, again, there have -- there have been so many changes in the conditions of our economy in just even these past weeks that there has been more and more revelation made aware now to Americans about the corruption and the greed on Wall Street.

We need to look back, even two years ago, and we need to be appreciative of John McCain's call for reform with Fannie Mae, with Freddie Mac, with the mortgage-lenders, too, who were starting to really kind of rear that head of abuse.

And the colleagues in the Senate weren't going to go there with him. So we have John McCain to thank for at least warning people. And we also have John McCain to thank for bringing in a bipartisan effort people to the table so that we can start putting politics aside, even putting a campaign aside, and just do what's right to fix this economic problem that we are in.

It is a crisis. It's a toxic mess, really, on Main Street that's affecting Wall Street. And now we have to be ever vigilant and also making sure that credit markets don't seize up. That's where the Main Streeters like me, that's where we would really feel the effects.

IFILL: Senator Biden, you voted for this bankruptcy bill. Senator Obama voted against it. Some people have said that mortgage- holders really paid the price.

BIDEN: Well, mortgage-holders didn't pay the price. Only 10 percent of the people who are -- have been affected by this whole switch from Chapter 7 to Chapter 13 -- it gets complicated.

But the point of this -- Barack Obama saw the glass as half- empty. I saw it as half-full. We disagreed on that, and 85 senators voted one way, and 15 voted the other way.

But here's the deal. Barack Obama pointed out two years ago that there was a subprime mortgage crisis and wrote to the secretary of Treasury. And he said, "You'd better get on the stick here. You'd better look at it."

John McCain said as early as last December, quote -- I'm paraphrasing -- "I'm surprised about this subprime mortgage crisis," number one.

Number two, with regard to bankruptcy now, Gwen, what we should be doing now -- and Barack Obama and I support it -- we should be allowing bankruptcy courts to be able to re-adjust not just the interest rate you're paying on your mortgage to be able to stay in your home, but be able to adjust the principal that you owe, the principal that you owe.

That would keep people in their homes, actually help banks by keeping it from going under. But John McCain, as I understand it -- I'm not sure of this, but I believe John McCain and the governor don't support that. There are ways to help people now. And there -- ways that we're offering are not being supported by -- by the Bush administration nor do I believe by John McCain and Governor Palin.

IFILL: Governor Palin, is that so?

PALIN: That is not so, but because that's just a quick answer, I want to talk about, again, my record on energy versus your ticket's energy ticket, also.

I think that this is important to come back to, with that energy policy plan again that was voted for in '05.

When we talk about energy, we have to consider the need to do all that we can to allow this nation to become energy independent.

It's a nonsensical position that we are in when we have domestic supplies of energy all over this great land. And East Coast politicians who don't allow energy-producing states like Alaska to produce these, to tap into them, and instead we're relying on foreign countries to produce for us.

PALIN: We're circulating about $700 billion a year into foreign countries, some who do not like America -- they certainly don't have our best interests at heart -- instead of those dollars circulating here, creating tens of thousands of jobs and allowing domestic supplies of energy to be tapped into and start flowing into these very, very hungry markets.

Energy independence is the key to this nation's future, to our economic future, and to our national security. So when we talk about energy plans, it's not just about who got a tax break and who didn't. And we're not giving oil companies tax breaks, but it's about a heck of a lot more than that.

Energy independence is the key to America's future.

IFILL: Governor, I'm happy to talk to you in this next section about energy issues. Let's talk about climate change. What is true and what is false about what we have heard, read, discussed, debated about the causes of climate change?

PALIN: Yes. Well, as the nation's only Arctic state and being the governor of that state, Alaska feels and sees impacts of climate change more so than any other state. And we know that it's real.

I'm not one to attribute every man -- activity of man to the changes in the climate. There is something to be said also for man's activities, but also for the cyclical temperature changes on our planet.

But there are real changes going on in our climate. And I don't want to argue about the causes. What I want to argue about is, how are we going to get there to positively affect the impacts?

We have got to clean up this planet. We have got to encourage other nations also to come along with us with the impacts of climate change, what we can do about that.

As governor, I was the first governor to form a climate change sub-cabinet to start dealing with the impacts. We've got to reduce emissions. John McCain is right there with an "all of the above" approach to deal with climate change impacts.

We've got to become energy independent for that reason. Also as we rely more and more on other countries that don't care as much about the climate as we do, we're allowing them to produce and to emit and even pollute more than America would ever stand for. So even in dealing with climate change, it's all the more reason that we have an "all of the above" approach, tapping into alternative sources of energy and conserving fuel, conserving our petroleum products and our hydrocarbons so that we can clean up this planet and deal with climate change.

IFILL: Senator, what is true and what is false about the causes?

BIDEN: Well, I think it is manmade. I think it's clearly manmade. And, look, this probably explains the biggest fundamental difference between John McCain and Barack Obama and Sarah Palin and Joe Biden -- Governor Palin and Joe Biden.

If you don't understand what the cause is, it's virtually impossible to come up with a solution. We know what the cause is. The cause is manmade. That's the cause. That's why the polar icecap is melting.

Now, let's look at the facts. We have 3 percent of the world's oil reserves. We consume 25 percent of the oil in the world. John McCain has voted 20 times in the last decade-and-a-half against funding alternative energy sources, clean energy sources, wind, solar, biofuels.

The way in which we can stop the greenhouse gases from emitting. We believe -- Barack Obama believes by investing in clean coal and safe nuclear, we can not only create jobs in wind and solar here in the United States, we can export it.

China is building one to three new coal-fired plants burning dirty coal per week. It's polluting not only the atmosphere but the West Coast of the United States. We should export the technology by investing in clean coal technology.

We should be creating jobs. John McCain has voted 20 times against funding alternative energy sources and thinks, I guess, the only answer is drill, drill, drill. Drill we must, but it will take 10 years for one drop of oil to come out of any of the wells that are going to begun to be drilled.

In the meantime, we're all going to be in real trouble.

IFILL: Let me clear something up, Senator McCain has said he supports caps on carbon emissions. Senator Obama has said he supports clean coal technology, which I don't believe you've always supported.

BIDEN: I have always supported it. That's a fact.

IFILL: Well, clear it up for us, both of you, and start with Governor Palin.

PALIN: Yes, Senator McCain does support this. The chant is "drill, baby, drill." And that's what we hear all across this country in our rallies because people are so hungry for those domestic sources of energy to be tapped into. They know that even in my own energy-producing state we have billions of barrels of oil and hundreds of trillions of cubic feet of clean, green natural gas. And we're building a nearly $40 billion natural gas pipeline which is North America's largest and most you expensive infrastructure project ever to flow those sources of energy into hungry markets.

Barack Obama and Senator Biden, you've said no to everything in trying to find a domestic solution to the energy crisis that we're in. You even called drilling -- safe, environmentally-friendly drilling offshore as raping the outer continental shelf.

There -- with new technology, with tiny footprints even on land, it is safe to drill and we need to do more of that. But also in that "all of the above" approach that Senator McCain supports, the alternative fuels will be tapped into: the nuclear, the clean coal.

I was surprised to hear you mention that because you had said that there isn't anything -- such a thing as clean coal. And I think you said it in a rope line, too, at one of your rallies.

IFILL: We do need to keep within our two minutes. But I just wanted to ask you, do you support capping carbon emissions?

PALIN: I do. I do.

IFILL: OK. And on the clean coal issue?

BIDEN: Absolutely. Absolutely we do. We call for setting hard targets, number one...

IFILL: Clean coal.

BIDEN: Oh, I'm sorry.

IFILL: On clean coal.

BIDEN: Oh, on clean coal. My record, just take a look at the record. My record for 25 years has supported clean coal technology. A comment made in a rope line was taken out of context. I was talking about exporting that technology to China so when they burn their dirty coal, it won't be as dirty, it will be clean.

But here's the bottom line, Gwen: How do we deal with global warming with continued addition to carbon emissions? And if the only answer you have is oil, and John -- and the governor says John is for everything.

Well, why did John vote 20 times? Maybe he's for everything as long as it's not helped forward by the government. Maybe he's for everything if the free market takes care of it. I don't know. But he voted 20 times against funding alternative energy sources.

IFILL: The next round of -- pardon me, the next round of questions starts with you, Senator Biden. Do you support, as they do in Alaska, granting same-sex benefits to couples? BIDEN: Absolutely. Do I support granting same-sex benefits? Absolutely positively. Look, in an Obama-Biden administration, there will be absolutely no distinction from a constitutional standpoint or a legal standpoint between a same-sex and a heterosexual couple.

The fact of the matter is that under the Constitution we should be granted -- same-sex couples should be able to have visitation rights in the hospitals, joint ownership of property, life insurance policies, et cetera. That's only fair.

It's what the Constitution calls for. And so we do support it. We do support making sure that committed couples in a same-sex marriage are guaranteed the same constitutional benefits as it relates to their property rights, their rights of visitation, their rights to insurance, their rights of ownership as heterosexual couples do.

IFILL: Governor, would you support expanding that beyond Alaska to the rest of the nation?

PALIN: Well, not if it goes closer and closer towards redefining the traditional definition of marriage between one man and one woman. And unfortunately that's sometimes where those steps lead.

But I also want to clarify, if there's any kind of suggestion at all from my answer that I would be anything but tolerant of adults in America choosing their partners, choosing relationships that they deem best for themselves, you know, I am tolerant and I have a very diverse family and group of friends and even within that group you would see some who may not agree with me on this issue, some very dear friends who don't agree with me on this issue.

But in that tolerance also, no one would ever propose, not in a McCain-Palin administration, to do anything to prohibit, say, visitations in a hospital or contracts being signed, negotiated between parties.

But I will tell Americans straight up that I don't support defining marriage as anything but between one man and one woman, and I think through nuances we can go round and round about what that actually means.

But I'm being as straight up with Americans as I can in my non- support for anything but a traditional definition of marriage.

IFILL: Let's try to avoid nuance, Senator. Do you support gay marriage?

BIDEN: No. Barack Obama nor I support redefining from a civil side what constitutes marriage. We do not support that. That is basically the decision to be able to be able to be left to faiths and people who practice their faiths the determination what you call it.

The bottom line though is, and I'm glad to hear the governor, I take her at her word, obviously, that she think there should be no civil rights distinction, none whatsoever, between a committed gay couple and a committed heterosexual couple. If that's the case, we really don't have a difference.

IFILL: Is that what your said?

PALIN: Your question to him was whether he supported gay marriage and my answer is the same as his and it is that I do not.

IFILL: Wonderful. You agree. On that note, let's move to foreign policy.


IFILL: You both have sons who are in Iraq or on their way to Iraq. You, Governor Palin, have said that you would like to see a real clear plan for an exit strategy. What should that be, Governor?

PALIN: I am very thankful that we do have a good plan and the surge and the counterinsurgency strategy in Iraq that has proven to work, I am thankful that that is part of the plan implemented under a great American hero, General Petraeus, and pushed hard by another great American, Senator John McCain.

I know that the other ticket opposed this surge, in fact, even opposed funding for our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. Barack Obama voted against funding troops there after promising that he would not do so.

PALIN: And Senator Biden, I respected you when you called him out on that. You said that his vote was political and you said it would cost lives. And Barack Obama at first said he would not do that. He turned around under political pressure and he voted against funding the troops. We do have a plan for withdrawal. We don't need early withdrawal out of Iraq. We cannot afford to lose there or we're going to be no better off in the war in Afghanistan either. We have got to win in Iraq.

And with the surge that has worked we're now down to presurge numbers in Iraq. That's where we can be. We can start putting more troops in Afghanistan as we also work with our NATO allies who are there strengthening us and we need to grow our military. We cannot afford to lose against al Qaeda and the Shia extremists who are still there, still fighting us, but we're getting closer and closer to victory. And it would be a travesty if we quit now in Iraq.

IFILL: Senator?

BIDEN: Gwen, with all due respect, I didn't hear a plan. Barack Obama offered a clear plan. Shift responsibility to Iraqis over the next 16 months. Draw down our combat troops. Ironically the same plan that Maliki, the prime minister of Iraq and George Bush are now negotiating. The only odd man out here, only one left out is John McCain, number one. Number two, with regard to Barack Obama not quote funding the troops, John McCain voted the exact same way. John McCain voted against funding the troops because of an amendment he voted against had a timeline in it to draw down American troops. And John said I'm not going to fund the troops if in fact there's a time line. Barack Obama and I agree fully and completely on one thing. You've got to have a time line to draw down the troops and shift responsibility to the Iraqis.

We're spending $10 billion a month while Iraqis have an $80 billion surplus. Barack says it's time for them to spend their own money and have the 400,000 military we trained for them begin to take their own responsibility and gradually over 16 months, withdrawal. John McCain -- this is a fundamental difference between us, we'll end this war. For John McCain, there's no end in sight to end this war, fundamental difference. We will end this war.

IFILL: Governor?

PALIN: Your plan is a white flag of surrender in Iraq and that is not what our troops need to hear today, that's for sure. And it's not what our nation needs to be able to count on. You guys opposed the surge. The surge worked. Barack Obama still can't admit the surge works.

We'll know when we're finished in Iraq when the Iraqi government can govern its people and when the Iraqi security forces can secure its people. And our commanders on the ground will tell us when those conditions have been met. And Maliki and Talabani also in working with us are knowing again that we are getting closer and closer to that point, that victory that's within sight.

Now, you said regarding Senator McCain's military policies there, Senator Biden, that you supported a lot of these things. In fact, you said in fact that you wanted to run, you'd be honored to run with him on the ticket. That's an indication I think of some of the support that you had at least until you became the VP pick here.

You also said that Barack Obama was not ready to be commander in chief. And I know again that you opposed the move he made to try to cut off funding for the troops and I respect you for that. I don't know how you can defend that position now but I know that you know especially with your son in the National Guard and I have great respect for your family also and the honor that you show our military. Barack Obama though, another story there. Anyone I think who can cut off funding for the troops after promising not to is another story.

IFILL: Senator Biden?

BIDEN: John McCain voted to cut off funding for the troops. Let me say that again. John McCain voted against an amendment containing $1 billion, $600 million that I had gotten to get MRAPS, those things that are protecting the governor's son and pray god my son and a lot of other sons and daughters.

He voted against it. He voted against funding because he said the amendment had a time line in it to end this war. He didn't like that. But let's get straight who has been right and wrong. John McCain and Dick Cheney said while I was saying we would not be greeted as liberators, we would not - this war would take a decade and not a day, not a week and not six months, we would not be out of there quickly. John McCain was saying the Sunnis and Shias got along with each other without reading the history of the last 700 years. John McCain said there would be enough oil to pay for this. John McCain has been dead wrong. I love him. As my mother would say, god love him, but he's been dead wrong on the fundamental issues relating to the conduct of the war. Barack Obama has been right. There are the facts.

IFILL: Let's move to Iran and Pakistan. I'm curious about what you think starting with you Senator Biden. What's the greater threat, a nuclear Iran or an unstable Afghanistan? Explain why.

BIDEN: Well, they're both extremely dangerous. I always am focused, as you know Gwen, I have been focusing on for a long time, along with Barack on Pakistan. Pakistan already has nuclear weapons. Pakistan already has deployed nuclear weapons. Pakistan's weapons can already hit Israel and the Mediterranean. Iran getting a nuclear weapon would be very, very destabilizing. They are more than - they are not close to getting a nuclear weapon that's able to be deployed. So they're both very dangerous. They both would be game changers.

But look, here's what the fundamental problem I have with John's policy about terror instability. John continues to tell us that the central war in the front on terror is in Iraq. I promise you, if an attack comes in the homeland, it's going to come as our security services have said, it is going to come from al Qaeda planning in the hills of Afghanistan and Pakistan. That's where they live. That's where they are. That's where it will come from. And right now that resides in Pakistan, a stable government needs to be established. We need to support that democracy by helping them not only with their military but with their governance and their economic well-being.

There have been 7,000 madrasses built along that border. We should be helping them build schools to compete for those hearts and minds of the people in the region so that we're actually able to take on terrorism and by the way, that's where bin Laden lives and we will go at him if we have actually intelligence.

IFILL: Governor, nuclear Pakistan, unstable Pakistan, nuclear Iran? Which is the greater threat?

PALIN: Both are extremely dangerous, of course. And as for who coined that central war on terror being in Iraq, it was the General Petraeus and al Qaeda, both leaders there and it's probably the only thing that they're ever going to agree on, but that it was a central war on terror is in Iraq. You don't have to believe me or John McCain on that. I would believe Petraeus and the leader of al Qaeda.

An armed, nuclear armed especially Iran is so extremely dangerous to consider. They cannot be allowed to acquire nuclear weapons period. Israel is in jeopardy of course when we're dealing with Ahmadinejad as a leader of Iran. Iran claiming that Israel as he termed it, a stinking corpse, a country that should be wiped off the face of the earth. Now a leader like Ahmadinejad who is not sane or stable when he says things like that is not one whom we can allow to acquire nuclear energy, nuclear weapons. Ahmadinejad, Kim Jong Il, the Castro brothers, others who are dangerous dictators are one that Barack Obama has said he would be willing to meet with without preconditions being met first.

And an issue like that taken up by a presidential candidate goes beyond naivete and goes beyond poor judgment. A statement that he made like that is downright dangerous because leaders like Ahmadinejad who would seek to acquire nuclear weapons and wipe off the face of the earth an ally like we have in Israel should not be met with without preconditions and diplomatic efforts being undertaken first.

IFILL: Governor and senator, I want you both to respond to this. Secretaries of state Baker, Kissinger, Powell, they have all advocated some level of engagement with enemies. Do you think these former secretaries of state are wrong on that?

PALIN: No and Dr. Henry Kissinger especially. I had a good conversation with him recently. And he shared with me his passion for diplomacy. And that's what John McCain and I would engage in also. But again, with some of these dictators who hate America and hate what we stand for, with our freedoms, our democracy, our tolerance, our respect for women's rights, those who would try to destroy what we stand for cannot be met with just sitting down on a presidential level as Barack Obama had said he would be willing to do. That is beyond bad judgment. That is dangerous.

No, diplomacy is very important. First and foremost, that is what we would engage in. But diplomacy is hard work by serious people. It's lining out clear objectives and having your friends and your allies ready to back you up there and have sanctions lined up before any kind of presidential summit would take place.

IFILL: Senator?

BIDEN: Can I clarify this? This is simply not true about Barack Obama. He did not say sit down with Ahmadinejad.

BIDEN: The fact of the matter is, it surprises me that Senator McCain doesn't realize that Ahmadinejad does not control the security apparatus in Iran. The theocracy controls the security apparatus, number one.

Number two, five secretaries of state did say we should talk with and sit down.

Now, John and Governor Palin now say they're all for -- they have a passion, I think the phrase was, a passion for diplomacy and that we have to bring our friends and allies along.

Our friends and allies have been saying, Gwen, "Sit down. Talk. Talk. Talk." Our friends and allies have been saying that, five secretaries of state, three of them Republicans.

And John McCain has said he would go along with an agreement, but he wouldn't sit down. Now, how do you do that when you don't have your administration sit down and talk with the adversary?

And look what President Bush did. After five years, he finally sent a high-ranking diplomat to meet with the highest-ranking diplomats in Iran, in Europe, to try to work out an arrangement.

Our allies are on that same page. And if we don't go the extra mile on diplomacy, what makes you think the allies are going to sit with us?

The last point I'll make, John McCain said as recently as a couple of weeks ago he wouldn't even sit down with the government of Spain, a NATO ally that has troops in Afghanistan with us now. I find that incredible.

IFILL: Governor, you mentioned Israel and your support for Israel.


IFILL: What has this administration done right or wrong -- this is the great, lingering, unresolved issue, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict -- what have they done? And is a two-state solution the solution?

PALIN: A two-state solution is the solution. And Secretary Rice, having recently met with leaders on one side or the other there, also, still in these waning days of the Bush administration, trying to forge that peace, and that needs to be done, and that will be top of an agenda item, also, under a McCain-Palin administration.

Israel is our strongest and best ally in the Middle East. We have got to assure them that we will never allow a second Holocaust, despite, again, warnings from Iran and any other country that would seek to destroy Israel, that that is what they would like to see.

We will support Israel. A two-state solution, building our embassy, also, in Jerusalem, those things that we look forward to being able to accomplish, with this peace-seeking nation, and they have a track record of being able to forge these peace agreements.

They succeeded with Jordan. They succeeded with Egypt. I'm sure that we're going to see more success there, also.

It's got to be a commitment of the United States of America, though. And I can promise you, in a McCain-Palin administration, that commitment is there to work with our friends in Israel.

IFILL: Senator?

BIDEN: Gwen, no one in the United States Senate has been a better friend to Israel than Joe Biden. I would have never, ever joined this ticket were I not absolutely sure Barack Obama shared my passion.

But you asked a question about whether or not this administration's policy had made sense or something to that effect. It has been an abject failure, this administration's policy.

In fairness to Secretary Rice, she's trying to turn it around now in the seventh or eighth year.

Here's what the president said when we said no. He insisted on elections on the West Bank, when I said, and others said, and Barack Obama said, "Big mistake. Hamas will win. You'll legitimize them." What happened? Hamas won.

When we kicked -- along with France, we kicked Hezbollah out of Lebanon, I said and Barack said, "Move NATO forces in there. Fill the vacuum, because if you don't know -- if you don't, Hezbollah will control it."

Now what's happened? Hezbollah is a legitimate part of the government in the country immediately to the north of Israel.

The fact of the matter is, the policy of this administration has been an abject failure.

And speaking of freedom being on the march, the only thing on the march is Iran. It's closer to a bomb. Its proxies now have a major stake in Lebanon, as well as in the Gaza Strip with Hamas.

We will change this policy with thoughtful, real, live diplomacy that understands that you must back Israel in letting them negotiate, support their negotiation, and stand with them, not insist on policies like this administration has.

IFILL: Has this administration's policy been an abject failure, as the senator says, Governor?

PALIN: No, I do not believe that it has been. But I'm so encouraged to know that we both love Israel, and I think that is a good thing to get to agree on, Senator Biden. I respect your position on that.

No, in fact, when we talk about the Bush administration, there's a time, too, when Americans are going to say, "Enough is enough with your ticket," on constantly looking backwards, and pointing fingers, and doing the blame game.

There have been huge blunders in the war. There have been huge blunders throughout this administration, as there are with every administration.

But for a ticket that wants to talk about change and looking into the future, there's just too much finger-pointing backwards to ever make us believe that that's where you're going.

Positive change is coming, though. Reform of government is coming. We'll learn from the past mistakes in this administration and other administrations.

And we're going to forge ahead with putting government back on the side of the people and making sure that our country comes first, putting obsessive partisanship aside.

That's what John McCain has been known for in all these years. He has been the maverick. He has ruffled feathers.

But I know, Senator Biden, you have respected for them that, and I respect you for acknowledging that. But change is coming.

IFILL: Just looking backwards, Senator?

BIDEN: Look, past is prologue, Gwen. The issue is, how different is John McCain's policy going to be than George Bush's? I haven't heard anything yet.

I haven't heard how his policy is going to be different on Iran than George Bush's. I haven't heard how his policy is going to be different with Israel than George Bush's. I haven't heard how his policy in Afghanistan is going to be different than George Bush's. I haven't heard how his policy in Pakistan is going to be different than George Bush's.

It may be. But so far, it is the same as George Bush's. And you know where that policy has taken us.

We will make significant change so, once again, we're the most respected nation in the world. That's what we're going to do.

IFILL: Governor, on another issue, interventionism, nuclear weapons. What should be the trigger, or should there be a trigger, when nuclear weapons use is ever put into play?

PALIN: Nuclear weaponry, of course, would be the be all, end all of just too many people in too many parts of our planet, so those dangerous regimes, again, cannot be allowed to acquire nuclear weapons, period.

Our nuclear weaponry here in the U.S. is used as a deterrent. And that's a safe, stable way to use nuclear weaponry.

But for those countries -- North Korea, also, under Kim Jong-il -- we have got to make sure that we're putting the economic sanctions on these countries and that we have friends and allies supporting us in this to make sure that leaders like Kim Jong-il and Ahmadinejad are not allowed to acquire, to proliferate, or to use those nuclear weapons. It is that important.

Can we talk about Afghanistan real quick, also, though?

IFILL: Certainly.

PALIN: OK, I'd like to just really quickly mention there, too, that when you look back and you say that the Bush administration's policy on Afghanistan perhaps would be the same as McCain, and that's not accurate.

The surge principles, not the exact strategy, but the surge principles that have worked in Iraq need to be implemented in Afghanistan, also. And that, perhaps, would be a difference with the Bush administration.

Now, Barack Obama had said that all we're doing in Afghanistan is air-raiding villages and killing civilians. And such a reckless, reckless comment and untrue comment, again, hurts our cause.

That's not what we're doing there. We're fighting terrorists, and we're securing democracy, and we're building schools for children there so that there is opportunity in that country, also. There will be a big difference there, and we will win in -- in Afghanistan, also.

IFILL: Senator, you may talk about nuclear use, if you'd like, and also about Afghanistan.

BIDEN: I'll talk about both. With Afghanistan, facts matter, Gwen.

The fact is that our commanding general in Afghanistan said today that a surge -- the surge principles used in Iraq will not -- well, let me say this again now -- our commanding general in Afghanistan said the surge principle in Iraq will not work in Afghanistan, not Joe Biden, our commanding general in Afghanistan.

He said we need more troops. We need government-building. We need to spend more money on the infrastructure in Afghanistan.

Look, we have spent more money -- we spend more money in three weeks on combat in Iraq than we spent on the entirety of the last seven years that we have been in Afghanistan building that country.

Let me say that again. Three weeks in Iraq; seven years, seven years or six-and-a-half years in Afghanistan. Now, that's number one.

Number two, with regard to arms control and weapons, nuclear weapons require a nuclear arms control regime. John McCain voted against a Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty that every Republican has supported.

John McCain has opposed amending the Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty with an amendment to allow for inspections.

John McCain has not been -- has not been the kind of supporter for dealing with -- and let me put it another way. My time is almost up.

Barack Obama, first thing he did when he came to the United States Senate, new senator, reached across the aisle to my colleague, Dick Lugar, a Republican, and said, "We've got to do something about keeping nuclear weapons out of the hands of terrorists."

They put together a piece of legislation that, in fact, was serious and real. Every major -- I shouldn't say every -- on the two at least that I named, I know that John McCain has been opposed to extending the arms control regime in the world.

IFILL: Governor?

PALIN: Well, first, McClellan did not say definitively the surge principles would not work in Afghanistan. Certainly, accounting for different conditions in that different country and conditions are certainly different. We have NATO allies helping us for one and even the geographic differences are huge but the counterinsurgency principles could work in Afghanistan. McClellan didn't say anything opposite of that. The counterinsurgency strategy going into Afghanistan, clearing, holding, rebuilding, the civil society and the infrastructure can work in Afghanistan. And those leaders who are over there, who have also been advising George Bush on this have not said anything different but that.

IFILL: Senator.

PALIN: Well, our commanding general did say that. The fact of the matter is that again, I'll just put in perspective, while Barack and I and Chuck Hagel and Dick Lugar have been calling for more money to help in Afghanistan, more troops in Afghanistan, John McCain was saying two years ago quote, "The reason we don't read about Afghanistan anymore in the paper, it's succeeded.

Barack Obama was saying we need more troops there. Again, we spend in three weeks on combat missions in Iraq, more than we spent in the entire time we have been in Afghanistan. That will change in a Barack Obama administration.

IFILL: Senator, you have quite a record, this is the next question here, of being an interventionist. You argued for intervention in Bosnia and Kosovo, initially in Iraq and Pakistan and now in Darfur, putting U.S. troops on the ground. Boots on the ground. Is this something the American public has the stomach for?

BIDEN: I think the American public has the stomach for success. My recommendations on Bosnia. I admit I was the first one to recommend it. They saved tens of thousands of lives. And initially John McCain opposed it along with a lot of other people. But the end result was it worked. Look what we did in Bosnia. We took Serbs, Croats and Bosniaks, being told by everyone, I was told by everyone that this would mean that they had been killing each other for a thousand years, it would never work.

There's a relatively stable government there now as in Kosovo. With regard to Iraq, I indicated it would be a mistake to -- I gave the president the power. I voted for the power because he said he needed it not to go to war but to keep the United States, the UN in line, to keep sanctions on Iraq and not let them be lifted.

I, along with Dick Lugar, before we went to war, said if we were to go to war without our allies, without the kind of support we need, we'd be there for a decade and it'd cost us tens of billions of dollars. John McCain said, no, it was going to be OK.

I don't have the stomach for genocide when it comes to Darfur. We can now impose a no-fly zone. It's within our capacity. We can lead NATO if we're willing to take a hard stand. We can, I've been in those camps in Chad. I've seen the suffering, thousands and tens of thousands have died and are dying. We should rally the world to act and demonstrate it by our own movement to provide the helicopters to get the 21,000 forces of the African Union in there now to stop this genocide.

IFILL: Thank you, senator. Governor.

PALIN: Oh, yeah, it's so obvious I'm a Washington outsider. And someone just not used to the way you guys operate. Because here you voted for the war and now you oppose the war. You're one who says, as so many politicians do, I was for it before I was against it or vice- versa. Americans are craving that straight talk and just want to know, hey, if you voted for it, tell us why you voted for it and it was a war resolution.

And you had supported John McCain's military strategies pretty adamantly until this race and you had opposed very adamantly Barack Obama's military strategy, including cutting off funding for the troops that attempt all through the primary.

And I watched those debates, so I remember what those were all about.

But as for as Darfur, we can agree on that also, the supported of the no-fly zone, making sure that all options are on the table there also.

America is in a position to help. What I've done in my position to help, as the governor of a state that's pretty rich in natural resources, we have a $40 billion investment fund, a savings fund called the Alaska Permanent Fund.

When I and others in the legislature found out we had some millions of dollars in Sudan, we called for divestment through legislation of those dollars to make sure we weren't doing anything that would be seen as condoning the activities there in Darfur. That legislation hasn't passed yet but it needs to because all of us, as individuals, and as humanitarians and as elected officials should do all we can to end those atrocities in that region of the world.

IFILL: Is there a line that should be drawn about when we decide to go in?

BIDEN: Absolutely. There is a line that should be drawn.

IFILL: What is it? BIDEN: The line that should be drawn is whether we A, first of all have the capacity to do anything about it number one. And number two, certain new lines that have to be drawn internationally. When a country engages in genocide, when a country engaging in harboring terrorists and will do nothing about it, at that point that country in my view and Barack's view forfeits their right to say you have no right to intervene at all.

The truth of the matter is, though, let's go back to John McCain's strategy. I never supported John McCain's strategy on the war. John McCain said exactly what Dick Cheney said, go back and look at Barack Obama's statements and mine. Go look at, contemporaneously, held hearings in the summer before we went to war, saying if we went to war, we would not be greeted as liberator, we would have a fight between Sunnis and Shias, we would be tied down for a decade and cost us hundreds of billions of dollars.

John McCain was saying the exact opposite. John McCain was lock- step with Dick Cheney at that point how this was going to be easy. So John McCain's strategy in this war, not just whether or not to go, the actual conduct of the war has been absolutely wrong from the outset.

IFILL: Governor.

PALIN: I beg to disagree with you, again, here on whether you supported Barack Obama or John McCain's strategies. Here again, you can say what you want to say a month out before people are asked to vote on this, but we listened to the debates.

I think tomorrow morning, the pundits are going to start do the who said what at what time and we'll have proof of some of this, but, again, John McCain who knows how to win a war. Who's been there and he's faced challenges and he knows what evil is and knows what it takes to overcome the challenges here with our military.

He knows to learn from the mistakes and blunders we have seen in the war in Iraq, especially. He will know how to implement the strategies, working with our commanders and listening to what they have to say, taking the politics out of these war issues. He'll know how to win a war.

IFILL: Thank you, governor.

Probably the biggest cliche about the vice-presidency is that it's a heartbeat away, everybody's waiting to see what would happen if the worst happened. How would -- you disagree on some things from your principles, you disagree on drilling in Alaska, the National Wildlife Refuge, you disagree on the surveillance law, at least you have in the past. How would a Biden administration be different from an Obama administration if that were to happen.

BIDEN: God forbid that would ever happen, it would be a national tragedy of historic proportions if it were to happen.

But if it did, I would carry out Barack Obama's policy, his policies of reinstating the middle class, making sure they get a fair break, making sure they have access to affordable health insurance, making sure they get serious tax breaks, making sure we can help their children get to college, making sure there is an energy policy that leads us in the direction of not only toward independence and clean environment but an energy policy that creates 5 million new jobs, a foreign policy that ends this war in Iraq, a foreign policy that goes after the one mission the American public gave the president after 9/11, to get and capture or kill bin Laden and to eliminate al Qaeda. A policy that would in fact engage our allies in making sure that we knew we were acting on the same page and not dictating.

And a policy that would reject the Bush Doctrine of preemption and regime change and replace it with a doctrine of prevention and cooperation and, ladies and gentlemen, this is the biggest ticket item that we have in this election.

This is the most important election you will ever, ever have voted in, any of you, since 1932. And there's such stark differences, I would follow through on Barack's policies because in essence, I agree with every major initiative he is suggesting.

IFILL: Governor.

PALIN: And heaven forbid, yes, that would ever happen, no matter how this ends up, that that would ever happen with either party.

As for disagreeing with John McCain and how our administration would work, what do you expect? A team of mavericks, of course we're not going to agree on 100 percent of everything. As we discuss ANWR there, at least we can agree to disagree on that one. I will keep pushing him on ANWR. I have so appreciated he has never asked me to check my opinions at the door and he wants a deliberative debate and healthy debate so we can make good policy.

What I would do also, if that were to ever happen, though, is to continue the good work he is so committed to of putting government back on the side of the people and get rid of the greed and corruption on Wall Street and in Washington.

I think we need a little bit of reality from Wasilla Main Street there, brought to Washington, DC.

PALIN: So that people there can understand how the average working class family is viewing bureaucracy in the federal government and Congress and inaction of Congress.

Just everyday working class Americans saying, you know, government, just get out of my way. If you're going to do any harm and mandate more things on me and take more of my money and income tax and business taxes, you're going to have a choice in just a few weeks here on either supporting a ticket that wants to create jobs and bolster our economy and win the war or you're going to be supporting a ticket that wants to increase taxes, which ultimately kills jobs, and is going to hurt our economy.

BIDEN: Can I respond? Look, all you have to do is go down Union Street with me in Wilmington or go to Katie's Restaurant or walk into Home Depot with me where I spend a lot of time and you ask anybody in there whether or not the economic and foreign policy of this administration has made them better off in the last eight years. And then ask them whether there's a single major initiative that John McCain differs with the president on. On taxes, on Iraq, on Afghanistan, on the whole question of how to help education, on the dealing with health care.

Look, the people in my neighborhood, they get it. They get it. They know they've been getting the short end of the stick. So walk with me in my neighborhood, go back to my old neighborhood in Claymont, an old steel town or go up to Scranton with me. These people know the middle class has gotten the short end. The wealthy have done very well. Corporate America has been rewarded. It's time we change it. Barack Obama will change it.

IFILL: Governor?

PALIN: Say it ain't so, Joe, there you go again pointing backwards again. You preferenced your whole comment with the Bush administration. Now doggone it, let's look ahead and tell Americans what we have to plan to do for them in the future. You mentioned education and I'm glad you did. I know education you are passionate about with your wife being a teacher for 30 years, and god bless her. Her reward is in heaven, right? I say, too, with education, America needs to be putting a lot more focus on that and our schools have got to be really ramped up in terms of the funding that they are deserving. Teachers needed to be paid more. I come from a house full of school teachers. My grandma was, my dad who is in the audience today, he's a schoolteacher, had been for many years. My brother, who I think is the best schoolteacher in the year, and here's a shout-out to all those third graders at Gladys Wood Elementary School, you get extra credit for watching the debate.

Education credit in American has been in some sense in some of our states just accepted to be a little bit lax and we have got to increase the standards. No Child Left Behind was implemented. It's not doing the job though. We need flexibility in No Child Left Behind. We need to put more of an emphasis on the profession of teaching. We need to make sure that education in either one of our agendas, I think, absolute top of the line. My kids as public school participants right now, it's near and dear to my heart. I'm very, very concerned about where we're going with education and we have got to ramp it up and put more attention in that arena.

IFILL: Everybody gets extra credit tonight. We're going to move on to the next question. Governor, you said in July that someone would have to explain to you exactly what it is the vice president does every day. You, senator, said, you would not be vice president under any circumstances. Now maybe this was just what was going on at the time. But tell us now, looking forward, what it is you think the vice presidency is worth now.

PALIN: In my comment there, it was a lame attempt at a joke and yours was a lame attempt at a joke, too, I guess, because nobody got it. Of course we know what a vice president does.

BIDEN: They didn't get yours or mine? Which one didn't they get?

PALIN: No, no. Of course, we know what a vice president does. And that's not only to preside over the Senate and will take that position very seriously also. I'm thankful the Constitution would allow a bit more authority given to the vice president if that vice president so chose to exert it in working with the Senate and making sure that we are supportive of the president's policies and making sure too that our president understands what our strengths are. John McCain and I have had good conversations about where I would lead with his agenda. That is energy independence in America and reform of government over all, and then working with families of children with special needs. That's near and dear to my heart also. In those arenas, John McCain has already tapped me and said, that's where I want you, I want you to lead. I said, I can't wait to get and there go to work with you.

IFILL: Senator?

BIDEN: Gwen, I hope we'll get back to education because I don't know any government program that John is supporting, not early education, more money for it. The reason No Child Left Behind was left behind, the money was left behind, we didn't fund it. We can get back to that I assume.

With regard to the role of vice president, I had a long talk, as I'm sure the governor did with her principal, in my case with Barack. Let me tell you what Barack asked me to do. I have a history of getting things done in the United States Senate. John McCain would acknowledge that. My record shows that on controversial issues. I would be the point person for the legislative initiatives in the United States Congress for our administration. I would also, when asked if I wanted a portfolio, my response was, no. But Barack Obama indicated to me he wanted me with him to help him govern. So every major decision he'll be making, I'll be sitting in the room to give my best advice. He's president, not me, I'll give my best advice.

And one of the things he said early on when he was choosing, he said he picked someone who had an independent judgment and wouldn't be afraid to tell him if he disagreed. That is sort of my reputation, as you know. I look forward to working with Barack and playing a very constructive role in his presidency, bringing about the kind of change this country needs.

IFILL: Governor, you mentioned a moment ago the constitution might give the vice president more power than it has in the past. Do you believe as Vice President Cheney does, that the Executive Branch does not hold complete sway over the office of the vice presidency, that it it is also a member of the Legislative Branch?

PALIN: Well, our founding fathers were very wise there in allowing through the Constitution much flexibility there in the office of the vice president. And we will do what is best for the American people in tapping into that position and ushering in an agenda that is supportive and cooperative with the president's agenda in that position. Yeah, so I do agree with him that we have a lot of flexibility in there, and we'll do what we have to do to administer very appropriately the plans that are needed for this nation. And it is my executive experience that is partly to be attributed to my pick as V.P. with McCain, not only as a governor, but earlier on as a mayor, as an oil and gas regulator, as a business owner. It is those years of experience on an executive level that will be put to good use in the White House also.

IFILL: Vice President Cheney's interpretation of the vice presidency?

BIDEN: Vice President Cheney has been the most dangerous vice president we've had probably in American history. The idea he doesn't realize that Article I of the Constitution defines the role of the vice president of the United States, that's the Executive Branch. He works in the Executive Branch. He should understand that. Everyone should understand that.

And the primary role of the vice president of the United States of America is to support the president of the United States of America, give that president his or her best judgment when sought, and as vice president, to preside over the Senate, only in a time when in fact there's a tie vote. The Constitution is explicit.

The only authority the vice president has from the legislative standpoint is the vote, only when there is a tie vote. He has no authority relative to the Congress. The idea he's part of the Legislative Branch is a bizarre notion invented by Cheney to aggrandize the power of a unitary executive and look where it has gotten us. It has been very dangerous. IFILL: Let's talk conventional wisdom for a moment. The conventional wisdom, Governor Palin with you, is that your Achilles heel is that you lack experience. Your conventional wisdom against you is that your Achilles heel is that you lack discipline, Senator Biden. What id it really for you, Governor Palin? What is it really for you, Senator Biden? Start with you, governor.

PALIN: My experience as an executive will be put to good use as a mayor and business owner and oil and gas regulator and then as governor of a huge state, a huge energy producing state that is accounting for much progress towards getting our nation energy independence and that's extremely important.

But it wasn't just that experience tapped into, it was my connection to the heartland of America. Being a mom, one very concerned about a son in the war, about a special needs child, about kids heading off to college, how are we going to pay those tuition bills? About times and Todd and our marriage in our past where we didn't have health insurance and we know what other Americans are going through as they sit around the kitchen table and try to figure out how are they going to pay out-of-pocket for health care? We've been there also so that connection was important.

But even more important is that world view that I share with John McCain. That world view that says that America is a nation of exceptionalism. And we are to be that shining city on a hill, as President Reagan so beautifully said, that we are a beacon of hope and that we are unapologetic here. We are not perfect as a nation. But together, we represent a perfect ideal. And that is democracy and tolerance and freedom and equal rights. Those things that we stand for that can be put to good use as a force for good in this world.

John McCain and I share that. You combine all that with being a team with the only track record of making a really, a difference in where we've been and reforming, that's a good team, it's a good ticket.

IFILL: Senator?

BIDEN: You're very kind suggesting my only Achilles Heel is my lack of discipline.

BIDEN: Others talk about my excessive passion. I'm not going to change. I have 35 years in public office. People can judge who I am. I haven't changed in that time.

And, by the way, a record of change -- I will place my record and Barack's record against John McCain's or anyone else in terms of fundamental accomplishments. Wrote the crime bill, put 100,000 cops on the street, wrote the Violence Against Women Act, which John McCain voted against both of them, was the catalyst to change the circumstance in Bosnia, led by President Clinton, obviously.

Look, I understand what it's like to be a single parent. When my wife and daughter died and my two sons were gravely injured, I understand what it's like as a parent to wonder what it's like if your kid's going to make it.

I understand what it's like to sit around the kitchen table with a father who says, "I've got to leave, champ, because there's no jobs here. I got to head down to Wilmington. And when we get enough money, honey, we'll bring you down."

I understand what it's like. I'm much better off than almost all Americans now. I get a good salary with the United States Senate. I live in a beautiful house that's my total investment that I have. So I -- I am much better off now.

But the notion that somehow, because I'm a man, I don't know what it's like to raise two kids alone, I don't know what it's like to have a child you're not sure is going to -- is going to make it -- I understand.

I understand, as well as, with all due respect, the governor or anybody else, what it's like for those people sitting around that kitchen table. And guess what? They're looking for help. They're looking for help. They're not looking for more of the same.

IFILL: Governor?

PALIN: People aren't looking for more of the same. They are looking for change. And John McCain has been the consummate maverick in the Senate over all these years.

He's taken shots left and right from the other party and from within his own party, because he's had to take on his own party when the time was right, when he recognized it was time to put partisanship aside and just do what was right for the American people. That's what I've done as governor, also, take on my own party, when I had to, and work with both sides of the aisle, in my cabinet, appointing those who would serve regardless of party, Democrats, independents, Republicans, whatever it took to get the job done.

Also, John McCain's maverick position that he's in, that's really prompt up to and indicated by the supporters that he has. Look at Lieberman, and Giuliani, and Romney, and Lingle, and all of us who come from such a diverse background of -- of policy and of partisanship, all coming together at this time, recognizing he is the man that we need to leave -- lead in these next four years, because these are tumultuous times.

We have got to win the wars. We have got to get our economy back on track. We have got to not allow the greed and corruption on Wall Street anymore.

And we have not got to allow the partisanship that has really been entrenched in Washington, D.C., no matter who's been in charge. When the Republicans were in charge, I didn't see a lot of progress there, either. When the Democrats, either, though, this last go- around for the last two years.

Change is coming. And John McCain is the leader of that reform.

IFILL: Senator...

BIDEN: I'll be very brief. Can I respond to that?

Look, the maverick -- let's talk about the maverick John McCain is. And, again, I love him. He's been a maverick on some issues, but he has been no maverick on the things that matter to people's lives.

He voted four out of five times for George Bush's budget, which put us a half a trillion dollars in debt this year and over $3 trillion in debt since he's got there.

He has not been a maverick in providing health care for people. He has voted against -- he voted including another 3.6 million children in coverage of the existing health care plan, when he voted in the United States Senate.

He's not been a maverick when it comes to education. He has not supported tax cuts and significant changes for people being able to send their kids to college.

He's not been a maverick on the war. He's not been a maverick on virtually anything that genuinely affects the things that people really talk about around their kitchen table.

Can we send -- can we get Mom's MRI? Can we send Mary back to school next semester? We can't -- we can't make it. How are we going to heat the -- heat the house this winter?

He voted against even providing for what they call LIHEAP, for assistance to people, with oil prices going through the roof in the winter.

So maverick he is not on the important, critical issues that affect people at that kitchen table.

IFILL: Final question tonight, before your closing statements, starting with you, Senator Biden. Can you think of a single issue -- and this is to cast light for people who are just trying to get to know you in your final debate, your only debate of this year -- can you think of a single issue, policy issue, in which you were forced to change a long-held view in order to accommodate changed circumstances?

BIDEN: Yes, I can. When I got to the United States Senate and went on the Judiciary Committee as a young lawyer, I was of the view and had been trained in the view that the only thing that mattered was whether or not a nominee appointed, suggested by the president had a judicial temperament, had not committed a crime of moral turpitude, and was -- had been a good student.

And it didn't take me long -- it was hard to change, but it didn't take me long, but it took about five years for me to realize that the ideology of that judge makes a big difference.

That's why I led the fight against Judge Bork. Had he been on the court, I suspect there would be a lot of changes that I don't like and the American people wouldn't like, including everything from Roe v. Wade to issues relating to civil rights and civil liberties.

And so that -- that -- that was one of the intellectual changes that took place in my career as I got a close look at it. And that's why I was the first chairman of the Judiciary Committee to forthrightly state that it matters what your judicial philosophy is. The American people have a right to understand it and to know it.

But I did change on that, and -- and I'm glad I did.

IFILL: Governor?

PALIN: There have been times where, as mayor and governor, we have passed budgets that I did not veto and that I think could be considered as something that I quasi-caved in, if you will, but knowing that it was the right thing to do in order to progress the agenda for that year and to work with the legislative body, that body that actually holds the purse strings.

So there were times when I wanted to zero-base budget, and to cut taxes even more, and I didn't have enough support in order to accomplish that.

But on the major principle things, no, there hasn't been something that I've had to compromise on, because we've always seemed to find a way to work together. Up there in Alaska, what we have done is, with bipartisan efforts, is work together and, again, not caring who gets the credit for what, as we accomplish things up there.

And that's been just a part of the operation that I wanted to participate in. And that's what we're going to do in Washington, D.C., also, bring in both sides together. John McCain is known for doing that, also, in order to get the work done for the American people.

IFILL: Let's come full circle. You both want to bring both sides together. You both talk about bipartisanship. Once again, we saw what happened this week in Washington. How do you change the tone, as vice president, as number-two?

BIDEN: Well, again, I believe John McCain, were he here -- and this is a dangerous thing to say in the middle of an election -- but he would acknowledge what I'm about to say.

I have been able to work across the aisle on some of the most controversial issues and change my party's mind, as well as Republicans', because I learned a lesson from Mike Mansfield.

Mike Mansfield, a former leader of the Senate, said to me one day -- he -- I made a criticism of Jesse Helms. He said, "What would you do if I told you Jesse Helms and Dot Helms had adopted a child who had braces and was in real need?" I said, "I'd feel like a jerk."

He said, "Joe, understand one thing. Everyone's sent here for a reason, because there's something in them that their folks like. Don't question their motive."

I have never since that moment in my first year questioned the motive of another member of the Congress or Senate with whom I've disagreed. I've questioned their judgment.

I think that's why I have the respect I have and have been able to work as well as I've been able to have worked in the United States Senate. That's the fundamental change Barack Obama and I will be bring to this party, not questioning other people's motives.

IFILL: Governor?

PALIN: You do what I did as governor, and you appoint people regardless of party affiliation, Democrats, independents, Republicans. You -- you walk the walk; you don't just talk the talk.

And even in my own family, it's a very diverse family. And we have folks of all political persuasion in there, also, so I've grown up just knowing that, you know, at the end of the day, as long as we're all working together for the greater good, it's going to be OK.

But the policies and the proposals have got to speak for themselves, also. And, again, voters on November 4th are going to have that choice to either support a ticket that supports policies that create jobs.

You do that by lowering taxes on American workers and on our businesses. And you build up infrastructure, and you rein in government spending, and you make our -- our nation energy independent.

Or you support a ticket that supports policies that will kill jobs by increasing taxes. And that's what the track record shows, is a desire to increase taxes, increase spending, a trillion-dollar spending proposal that's on the table. That's going to hurt our country, and saying no to energy independence. Clear choices on November 4th.

IFILL: Governor Palin, you get the chance to make the first closing statement.

PALIN: Well, again, Gwen, I do want to thank you and the commission. This is such an honor for me.

And I appreciate, too, Senator Biden, getting to meet you, finally, also, and getting to debate with you. And I would like more opportunity for this.

I like being able to answer these tough questions without the filter, even, of the mainstream media kind of telling viewers what they've just heard. I'd rather be able to just speak to the American people like we just did.

And it's so important that the American people know of the choices that they have on November 4th.

I want to assure you that John McCain and I, we're going to fight for America. We're going to fight for the middle-class, average, everyday American family like mine.

I've been there. I know what the hurts are. I know what the challenges are. And, thank God, I know what the joys are, too, of living in America. We are so blessed. And I've always been proud to be an American. And so has John McCain.

We have to fight for our freedoms, also, economic and our national security freedoms.

It was Ronald Reagan who said that freedom is always just one generation away from extinction. We don't pass it to our children in the bloodstream; we have to fight for it and protect it, and then hand it to them so that they shall do the same, or we're going to find ourselves spending our sunset years telling our children and our children's children about a time in America, back in the day, when men and women were free.

We will fight for it, and there is only one man in this race who has really ever fought for you, and that's Senator John McCain.

IFILL: Thank you, Governor. Senator Biden.

BIDEN: Gwen, thank you for doing this, and the commission, and Governor, it really was a pleasure getting to meet you.

Look, folks, this is the most important election you've ever voted in your entire life. No one can deny that the last eight years, we've been dug into a very deep hole here at home with regard to our economy, and abroad in terms of our credibility. And there's a need for fundamental change in our economic philosophy, as well as our foreign policy.

And Barack Obama and I don't measure progress toward that change based on whether or not we cut more regulations and how well CEOs are doing, or giving another $4 billion in tax breaks to the Exxon Mobils of the world.

We measure progress in America based on whether or not someone can pay their mortgage, whether or not they can send their kid to college, whether or not they're able to, when they send their child, like we have abroad -- or I'm about to, abroad -- and John has as well, I might add -- to fight, that they are the best equipped and they have everything they need. And when they come home, they're guaranteed that they have the best health care and the best education possible.

You know, in the neighborhood I grew up in, it was all about dignity and respect. A neighborhood like most of you grew up in. And in that neighborhood, it was filled with women and men, mothers and fathers who taught their children if they believed in themselves, if they were honest, if they worked hard, if they loved their country, they could accomplish anything. We believed it, and we did.

That's why Barack Obama and I are running, to re-establish that certitude in our neighborhoods.

Ladies and gentlemen, my dad used to have an expression. He'd say, "champ, when you get knocked down, get up."

Well, it's time for America to get up together. America's ready, you're ready, I'm ready, and Barack Obama is ready to be the next president of the United States of America.

May God bless all of you, and most of all, for both of us, selfishly, may God protect our troops.

IFILL: That ends tonight's debate. We want to thank the folks here at Washington University in St. Louis, and the Commission on Presidential Debates.

There are two more debates to come. Next Tuesday, October 7th, with Tom Brokaw at Belmont University in Nashville, and on October 15th at Hofstra University in New York, with Bob Schieffer.

Thank you, Governor Palin and Senator Biden. Good night, everybody.

What They're Saying About Gov. Sarah Palin About Debate

Gov. Sarah Palin's closing remarks at Debate


What They're Saying About Governor Sarah Palin at Wash U. Debate

Source: McCain/Palin website

"She Was Every Bit His Equal"

The New York Times' David Brooks: "I thought she was every bit his equal. I thought she was fluid, confident, she struck her theme, just the regular old mom. But she handled the foreign policy issues. She did fine with Iraq. She did fine with Iran. She certainly hit energy often enough. I suspect Republicans are going to be quite pleased." (David Brooks, PBS' "Post-Debate Analysis," 10/2/08)

Brooks: "She could do policy, she did quite well on the gubernatorial issues and did quite well on mentioning John McCain all the time, much more than Joe Biden who scarcely mentioned Barack Obama, she did quite well with that. I thought was just that style of me versus Washington. I thought it was quite effective for her in general. I suspect most people, there are a few more hallmark moments, Norman Rockwell moments but I suspect most people will really like that." (David Brooks, PBS' "Post-Debate Analysis," 10/2/08)

"She's Articulate, Quick, Detail-Oriented" With "Everyday American Appeal"

ABC's Rick Klein: "[W]here has this Sarah Palin been? She's articulate, quick, detail-oriented tonight." (Rick Klein, "Live Debate" Blog,, 10/2/08)

Klein: "9:03 pm CT: 'It's so obvious that I'm a Washington outsider,' Palin says. Again, better done than said, but undeniable. This line of attack, driving a wedge between Biden and Obama, is legit, though it can seem forced at times." (Rick Klein, "Live Debate," ABC News' "Live Debate" Blog,, 10/2/08)

CNN's Bill Schneider: "Palin is going after Biden over his comments that the wealthy should pay more taxes as a patriotic move. The Alaska governor has come to this debate fully armed." (Bill Schneider, "Schneider: Attack, Counter Attack," CNN's "Political Ticker" Blog,, 10/2/08)

The Washington Post's Chris Cillizza: "Palin to Biden: 'Can I call you Joe?' GENIUS." (Chris Cillizza, "Twittering The Showdown In St. Louis," The Washington Post's "The Fix" Blog, Washington Post Fix Blog, 10/2/08)

Cillizza: "Palin starts with a 'kids soccer game' story in regards the economy. Folksy -- playing to her strengths." (Chris Cillizza, "Twittering The Showdown In St. Louis," Washington Post Fix Blog, 10/2/08)

Cillizza: "State of Alaska...taking on oil companies...this is good ground for her. The more she talks about reform, the better." (Chris Cillizza, "Twittering The Showdown In St. Louis," Washington Post Fix Blog, 10/2/08)

MSNBC's Carrie Dann: "Here's that folksy, everyday American appeal right out of the gate with Palin's first answer. She says you can hear about the consequences of the tough economy just by asking parents at a hockey game on a Saturday afternoon ... 'You're going to hear some fear' about 'the few investments some of us might have,' she says." (Carrie Dann, "The Palin McCain's Been Talking About," MSNBC's "First Read" Blog,, 10/2/08)

MSNBC's Domenico Montanaro: "Good start on the first question from Palin. She was crisp and went right to those ... soccer moms, if you will.

Commentary's Eric Trager: "Palin reminds Biden that he has often differed with Barack Obama on the Iraq war, and offers her respect for Biden's previous positions. 'I don't know how you can defend his positions now.' Brilliant." (Eric Trager, "Her Best Moment Yet," Commentary's "Contentions" Blog,, 10/2/08)

Trager: "She calls Biden out on voting for the war before he was against it. Biden has only himself to blame for setting Palin up with a meek explanation of why he authorized the war without (supposedly) supporting it. This is the knockout punch of the night thus far."

Bailout ~ So It Looks Like The Cure Is Worse Then The Disease


US Senate resoundingly passed Wall Street bailout Wednesday and now they hope the House of Representatives will follow suit.

Sen. Jim DeMint (Part 1)

Sen. Jim DeMint (Part 2)

Some of what he said transcribed but please if you can watch both videos they are not long. Thank you -- Wild Thing

“This is why people are so upset. It’s because Congress is being dishonest and arrogant. We’re not being honest with them about how we got into this mess and we’re not being honest with them about what we need to get out of it. Mr. President, I strongly oppose this legislation. It takes our country in the wrong direction. It forces innocent taxpayers to bail out government policies and Wall Street mistakes. It asks the American people to take a leap of faith and trust people who have consistently misled them. Mr. President, I am deeply saddened by the tone of this debate. I’m afraid that many of the supporters of this bill have bullied people into supporting it and using fear. There may be good reason for fear. But I think that most people will agree that some of the statements have been reckless an irresponsible. Mr. President, I hope I’m wrong. And this bill will truly solve the problem. Let me say again i know every one of my colleagues are doing what they believe is right for America. But based on what I know I cannot in good conscience support it.”

Here are some of the special-interest provisions that are now part of the Wall Street bailout legislation. The bill started at 3 pages, grew to 106 pages, and is now 451 pages.

HERE is the PDF file of the bill.

New Tax Breaks ( So these are tax breaks, not earmarked spending. These things get tax breaks under this bill)

* Wooden Arrows designed for use by children (Sec. 503)
* 6 page package of earmarks for litigants in the 1989 Exxon Valdez incident, Alaska (Sec. 504)

Tax Breaks

* Virgin Island and Puerto Rican Rum (Section 308)
* American Samoa (Sec. 309)
* Mine Rescue Teams (Sec. 310)
* Mine Safety Equipment (Sec. 311)
* Domestic Production Activities in Puerto Rico (Sec. 312)
* Indian Tribes (Sec. 314, 315)
* Railroads (Sec. 316)
* Auto Racing Tracks (317)
* District of Columbia (Sec. 322)
* Wool Research (Sec. 325)

The Yeas are 74 and Nays are 25.

Roll Call VOTE names and States

Here’s a rundown of the recent government actions to help the economy, which have not worked and are driving our nation deeper and deeper into debt.

source: Senate Conservatives

Even a conservative estimate of these actions shows that at least $1.4 trillion in new debt has been imposed on American taxpayers.

And some quotes from Treasury Secretary Paulson where he predicts these actions will help the economy and protect taxpayers. His predictions have been wildly off the mark and have rightly destroyed his credibility.

The Stimulus Plan
Cost: $152 billion in direct spending

“I talked with knowledgeable people in all parts of the economy and reviewed the data with our economic team…. the potential cost of not acting has become too high. We must act now to support our economy this year. The president laid out today clear principles that should guide the creation of an effective growth package. We are focused on working with Congress to quickly reach consensus on a plan that gets cash to consumers and gives businesses incentives to invest, to grow and to hire. We know from experience that these policies work to stimulate growth in the short term. The package should be robust enough to make an impact this year and should be temporary, so that it doesn’t significantly impact our long-term fiscal position.” – Secretary Paulson, January 18, 2008

Bear Stearns
Cost: $29 billion in Federal Reserve non-recourse loans

“For some months now, reduced access to short term funding and liquidity issues have created turmoil in our capital markets. In the midst of these conditions, Bear Stearns found itself facing bankruptcy. The Federal Reserve acted promptly to resolve the Bear Stearns situation and avoid a disorderly wind-down. It is the job of regulators to come together to address times such as this; and we did so. Our focus was the stability and orderliness of our financial markets.” – Secretary Paulson, March 26, 2008

Housing Bill (H.R. 3221)
Cost: $42.5 billion in direct spending

“I commend the Senate for moving swiftly to pass important GSE legislation that will provide temporary authorities to give confidence to markets and will create a strong, independent regulator better able to address the risks these enterprises pose. [I]t is of the utmost importance to our market and economic stability that the GSE portions of this bill become law. These components are orders of magnitude more important to turning the corner on the housing correction.” – Secretary Hank Paulson, July 26, 2008

Fannie and Freddie Takeover
Cost: $200 billion in stock warrants

“I strongly endorse both the decision by FHFA Director Lockhart to place Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac into conservatorship and the actions taken by Treasury Secretary Paulson to ensure the financial soundness of those two companies. These necessary steps will help to strengthen the U.S. housing market and promote stability in our financial markets. I also welcome the introduction of the Treasury’s new purchase facility for mortgage-backed securities, which will provide critical support for mortgage markets in this period of unusual credit-market uncertainty.” – Federal Reserve Board Chairman Ben S. Bernanke, September 7, 2008
“Based on what we have learned about these institutions… I concluded that it would not have been in the best interest of the taxpayers for Treasury to simply make an equity investment in these enterprises…. And let me make clear what today’s actions mean for Americans and their families. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are so large and so interwoven in our financial system that a failure of either of them would cause great turmoil in our financial markets…. This turmoil would directly and negatively impact household wealth: from family budgets, to home values, to savings for college and retirement. A failure would affect the ability of Americans to get home loans, auto loans and other consumer credit and business finance. And a failure would be harmful to economic growth and job creation.” — Secretary Hank Paulson, September 7, 2008

Lehman Brothers
Cost: $87 billion in advances backed by the Federal Reserve
Other Costs: $70 billion (from Federal Reserve & FRBNY)

“I strongly support the actions announced tonight by SEC Chairman Chris Cox, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke and market participants. These changes will strengthen and enhance our financial markets. These initiatives will be critical to facilitating liquid, smooth functioning markets, and addressing potential concerns in the credit markets.” The SEC action included requiring segregation of customer securities and case from those of Lehman. – Secretary Hank Paulson, September 14, 2008

AIG Bailout
Cost: $85 billion in loans

“We are working closely with the Federal Reserve, the SEC and other regulators to enhance the stability and orderliness of our financial markets and minimize the disruption to our economy. I support the steps taken by the Federal Reserve tonight to assist AIG in continuing to meet its obligations, mitigate broader disruptions and at the same time protect the taxpayers.” – Secretary Hank Paulson, September 16, 2008

Money Market Mutual Fund Backings
Cost: $50 billion in pledged assets

“The U.S. Treasury Department today announced the establishment of a temporary guaranty program for the U.S. money market mutual fund industry. For the next year, the U.S. Treasury will insure the holdings of any publicly offered eligible money market mutual fund - both retail and institutional - that pays a fee to participate in the program. President George W. Bush approved the use of existing authorities by Secretary Henry M. Paulson, Jr. to make available as necessary the assets of the Exchange Stabilization Fund for up to $50 billion to guarantee the payment in the circumstances described below.” – Treasury Department Press Release, September 19, 2008

Latest Plan: Socializing Bad Loans
Cost: $700 billion for the latest proposal

“The federal government must implement a program to remove these illiquid assets that are weighing down our financial institutions and threatening our economy. This troubled asset relief program must be properly designed and sufficiently large to have maximum impact…. I am convinced that this bold approach will cost American families far less than the alternative - a continuing series of financial institution failures and frozen credit markets unable to fund economic expansion. I believe many Members of Congress share my conviction. I will spend the weekend working with members of Congress of both parties to examine approaches to alleviate the pressure of these bad loans on our system, so credit can flow once again to American consumers and companies. Our economic health requires that we work together for prompt, bipartisan action.” – Secretary Hank Paulson, September 19, 2008

Total Paulson Bill to Date: $715.5 billion
New Requested Authority: $700 billion

Total Since January 2008: $1.416 TRILLION

"Wooden Arrows designed for use by children"

How does an emergency bill in order to avert an overnight collapse of the American way of life and of mom & apple pie get wool research, car racing and wooden arrows for children?

Are you kidding me!!?!

Get this Feinstein said out of the 95,000 calls to her office, 85,000 have said NAY. But she voted for it anyway. I guess forget what the people want and the people that voted for her.

I sent McCain a message. Not that it makes any difference, but I just wanted to tell him how disappointed I am in his voting for this. Especially when he says he is against pork.

Various contact information in case anyone wants it.

Here’s a link to the contact page on McCain’s campaign website:

Ho-bama voted for this as well, so both our Presidential candidates agreed.

A Special Message FROM Barack Obama's Teleprompter

A Special Message FROM....... Barack Obama's Teleprompter

Wild Thing's comment..........

LMAO this is sooooo great!!

I just love a teleprompter that has a mind of it's own when it comes to B. Hussein Obama!

Besides all the other horrible things about HO-bama, to think of his meeting with leaders of other countries ( without his teleprompter) he will be a total embarrassment to our Nation.
If I was going to run for President of the USA, and had a speech problem like Obama has with his stammering I would go to a speech therapist and see if I could overcome this terrible communication problem. But then Obama is a person that cannot be told he is wrong, as we have seen in his special blog just for his whine about being picked on and his Obama Truth Squad in PA and MO.
Those on the left made a big deal of George W. Bush's way of speaking, I actually like it. His way of lowering his voice and also making it breathy with the Texas drawl I love, to emphasis something he is saying reminds me of John Wayne.
What Obama does is something completely different, it shows his brain is not functioning. LOL I mean it, like it is skipping beats and unable to have a complete thought when he tries to speak and think at the same time. LOL I know that may sound weird but that is how I describe it.

Obama is NOT qualified for the job of President and this is yet just another thing to add to his list of how horrible the next 4 years would be if he does attains that goal.

Obama's "Stalin/Hitler Youth".... Children Indoctrinated "Sing for Change Obama"

Sing For Change

"Sing for Change chronicles a recent Sunday afternoon, when 22 children, ages 5-12, gathered to sing original songs in the belief that their singing would lift up our communities for the coming election. Light, hope, courage and love shine through these non-voting children who believe that their very best contribution to the Obama campaign is to sing."

"Sing for Change was a confluence of hard work, good will, and shared vision. Inspired by ideas raised at a grassroots Obama fundraiser, a music teacher, Kathy Sawada, and the children composed and rehearsed the songs in less than two weeks. Several musicians heard of the effort and volunteered to accompany the children. Parents and older siblings designed and provided the T-Shirts and the banner. There’s a first for everything, but rarely do so many firsts come together at once: for the children and their parents, this is their first performance, first video, first banner, and first involvement with grassroots work on a presidential campaign.

As Sunday approached, a neighbor volunteered a home. Production wizards got wind of the project and offered their help in recordingit. The likes of Jeff Zucker, Holly Schiffer, Peter Rosenfeld, Darin Moran, Jean Martin, Andy Blumenthal, and Nick Phoenix rearranged schedules to participate. Holly Schiffer was able to get three High Definition cameras (Panasonic HVX250’s), and an AVID editing facility. When Jeff Zucker went to pick up the camera package, Ted Schilowitz happened to be there and offered a RED camera set up on a SteadiCam.
What we accomplished in a few hours on a Sunday afternoon embodies the nature of the Obama campaign: its grassroots inspiration, its inclusiveness, its community building. People pitched in quickly for a cause that resonated with them. There were not many conditions: “Think this is a good idea? Want to help? Great. Sunday at 12:00.” At the heart of the project were 22 children and their music. The willingness of all involved to come together for them was a testament to our hope, unity, courage, joy and belief in the future represented by these children."


Music and lyrics by Lily Campbell, age 9

We're gonna spread happiness
We're gonna spread freedom
Obama's gonna change it
Obama's gonna lead 'em

We're gonna change it
And rearrange it
We're gonna change the world.


Music and lyrics by Kathy Sawada

Now's the moment, lift each voice to sing
Sing with all your heart!
For our children, for our families,
Nations all joined as one.
Sing for joy and sing abundant peace,
Courage, justice, hope!
Sing together, hold each precious hand,
Lifting each other up;
Sing for vision, sing for unity,
Lifting our hearts to Sing!


Wild Thing's comment.............

They’re seriously forming a CULT around Obama.

As part of their schoolwork, young children had to write poems praising Stalin, the Great Leader. They had poem writing contests, and the winner got to personally meet the Great Leader himself. Most of the poems were nauseating in how they fawned over this brutal murderer.

They wrote poems to this monster praising him, even as he condemned their parents to death or slave labor in Siberia.

It is creepy to watch the same cult build around 0bama.

This is overt political indoctrination of children isn't cute at all, as it robs them of their very childhood. Not that the left hasn't done that through the hypersexualization of society.

McCain will make the world a better place for children because he’s going to kill the terrorists. Obama would have some kind of sick love in with them.

Obama WORSHIPER Gwen Ifill To Be VP Debate Moderator

Nonpartisan???? Bias BIG TIME! ...........I say BS to this Gwen Ifill!

This totally biased woman should NOT be moderating the debate. it’s a complete sham. As far as “shedding light” on Obama - i doubt if her book will “shed light” on his communist associations and anti-American opinions.

The moderator of Thursday's vice presidential debate between Democrat Sen. Joe Biden and GOP Gov. Sarah Palin is writing a book, to come out about the time the next president takes the oath of office, to "shed new light" on Democratic candidate Barack Obama.

Here she discusses her new book, "The Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama."
Yes it is a book about her dear friend B. Hussein Obama and it will be released on January 20, 2009... Inaugural Day.

"veteran journalist Gwen Ifill surveys the American political landscape, shedding new light on the impact of Barack Obamas stunning presidential campaign and introducing the emerging young African American politicians forging a bold new path to political power. "


Gwen Ifill on Sarah Palin speech at GOP Convention.Whhile watching this from the convention I sure don't feel anything BUT BIAS!

Wild Thing's comment...........

Sorry but ................ WTF??!!!!!

When Gwen starts to show her obvious bias, Sarah should stop, read the excerpts and simply state,
“Gwen, I’d like to answer your question, but as you and America can see by these quotes your obviously an Obama voter. How fair is that ladies and gentleman? “

This is a HUGE conflict of interest. Doesn’t the McCain campaign have a research staff? I get so sick of watching republicans willingly play the part of punching bag. I read Gwen has a broken ankle, can't she bow on and use that as an excuse. A flimsy one but all the same it could be an excuse.

How was she ever allowed to be selected to moderate this debate, and what kind of total absence of integrity allowed her to accept?

Oh, wait, silly me, why do I even ask such questions?

If the country wanted to be fair, we’d let Ifil do her thing, but then Rush Limbaugh gets to moderate the second Presidential debate.

Senate To Vote On Bailout Wednesday Night (additions made by Senate)

The U.S. Senate will vote on the $700 billion financial rescue bill on Wednesday, just two days after the House of Representatives rejected it. The vote will take place around 9PM ET tonight..

Market Watch

The package before the Senate will be similar to the House version, with these additions, the New York Times reported in its online edition:

* The higher limit for insured bank deposits sought by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., which asked to raise the cap to $250,000 from $100,000, to quell opposition by individual and small-business depositors.

* Tax breaks for businesses and alternative energy, part of a package that has been caught in a stalemate in the House of Representatives. The Senate version of the gridlocked tax legislation would cost more than $100 billion and extend and expand many individual and business tax breaks, including tax credits for the production and use of renewable energy sources, like solar energy and wind power, the Times said. It would also extend the business tax credit for research and development, expand the child tax credit, protect millions of families from the alternative minimum tax and provide tax relief to victims of recent floods, tornadoes and severe storms, according to the Times..

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said details of the proposal wouldn't be available until Wednesday, the Times reported.

If the Senate approves the package, it would go to the House, which doesn't reconvene until noon Eastern on Thursday.

(1)Motion to concur on the House message, H.R. 2095, Rail Safety;
(2)a Dorgan amendment relating to H.R. 7081, the U.S. - India Nuclear agreement;
(3)a Bingaman amendment relating to H.R. 7081, the U.S. - India Nuclear agreement;
(4)passage of H.R. 7081, the U.S. - India Nuclear agreement;
(5)a Dodd amendment to H.R. 1424, relating to the bailout package;
(6)passage of H.R. 1424, the bailout.

from Quin Hillyer at The American Spectator

"The Senate tomorrow will attach the Wall Street bailout to a “must pass” tax extender bill. This is dirty pool. When you are talking about the single most significant growth of government power EVER, you should let it sink or swim on its own. You don’t attach it to a goodie basket and dare the other chamber to vote against it. To do so is a cheap, despicable tactic. It is the tactic of people without the courage of their convictions — the tactic of cowards. Yes, cowards. I am utterly disgusted with McConnell and the entire Senate leadership. This is not the way to handle legislations as serious as this is. If the House GOP had any guts, then if the Senate sends the House the bill in this form — thus also making a mockery, via legerdemain, of the requirement that such financial bills should start in the House — MORE of the House GOP than before should vote against it, in protest against this sort of hardball pressure.
I think every conservative in the country should raise holy hell about this. AGAINST this tactic. WHATEVER you think about the underlying bailout, this BS is utterly insulting."

Wild Thing's comment.......

Attaching this to another piece of legislation is just wrong.

Check out this section of the bill;

The Secretary shall coordinate, as appropriate, with foreign financial authorities and central banks to work toward the establishment of similar programs by such authorities and central banks. To the extent that such foreign financial authorities or banks hold troubled assets as a result of extending financing to financial institutions that have failed or defaulted on such financing, such troubled assets qualify for purchase under section 101.

This means we’ll be buying the bad loans of FOREIGNERS, not just us.

On Kudlow he said it was revealed Paulson would not support it and Bush would veto it if it had in it a provision to stop the above from happening!

Who do they represent, us Americans or some set of globalist masters?

I always thought that the rumors of globalism was tinfoil-hat material but what was tinfoil yesterday seems to be breaking news today!

They don’t deserve $700 billion, they deserve jail if anything.

Did I Say Can This Election Get Any More Strange? It Just Did! Look at This! LOL

Cynthia McKinney says 5000 executed Katrina used as cover.


Presidential candidate for the Green Party, Cynthia McKinney announced for the first time on Sunday that she has received information that some 5000, mostly male, possibly prisoners were killed execution style, by single gunshot to the head, using the tragic events of hurricane Katrina as a cover.
Candidate McKinney made the announcement at a conference in Oakland, Ca, for the Critical Resistance 10 on Sunday. While speaking she informed the audience that she has received information from a sources that were involved in the clean-up and disposal of the thousands of bodies. According to the source; who wishes to remain nameless at this time, he was charged by the Department of Defense with the task of processing the personal information into DOD computers and then dumping the bodies into a Louisiana swamp. McKinney also claims she has spoken to unnamed members of the Red Cross that this event did in fact take place.

Wild Thing's comment.........

LOL So where are the friends and relatives wondering where they’ve disappeared to? No letters since 2005? She’s barking at the moon insane.

Maybe she can be the next “moderator” for the presidential debates.

Democrat Culture Of Corruption....and fruitcakes that nobody wants....LOL

Not to worry, the 5000 dead felons will STILL be casting a vote for 0bama. It’s only fair.
