The FIGHT for The RIGHT!

Reverend Wright’s Time in The Sun and it’s Obama getting BURNED!

Bob Herbert is an op-ed columnist for the New York Times and has written an exceptional article that you will find printed in total below. Mr. Herbert tells it like it is about the Wright/Obama controversy!

    The Pastor Casts a Shadow

    “The Rev. Jeremiah Wright went to Washington on Monday not to praise Barack Obama, but to bury him.

    Smiling, cracking corny jokes, mugging it up for the big-time news media — this reverend is never going away. He’s found himself a national platform, and he’s loving it.

    It’s a twofer. Feeling dissed by Senator Obama, Mr. Wright gets revenge on his former follower while bathed in a spotlight brighter than any he could ever have imagined. He’s living a narcissist’s dream. At long last, his 15 minutes have arrived.

    So there he was lecturing an audience at the National Press Club about everything from the black slave experience to the differences in sentencing for possession of crack and powdered cocaine.

    All but swooning over the wonderfulness of himself, the reverend acts like he is the first person to come up with the idea that blacks too often get the short end of the stick in America, that the malignant influences of slavery and the long dark night of racial discrimination are still being felt today, that in many ways this is a profoundly inequitable society.

    This is hardly new ground. The question that cries out for an answer from Mr. Wright is why — if he is so passionately committed to liberating and empowering blacks — does he seem so insistent on wrecking the campaign of the only African-American ever to have had a legitimate shot at the presidency.

    On Sunday night, in an appearance before the Detroit N.A.A.C.P., Mr. Wright mocked the regional dialects of John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson. I’m not sure how he felt that was helpful in his supposed quest to bring about a constructive discussion about race and reconciliation in the U.S.

    What he is succeeding in doing is diminishing the stature of Senator Obama. A candidate who stands haplessly by as his former spiritual guide roams the country dropping one divisive bomb after another is in very little danger of being seen by most voters as the next J.F.K. or L.B.J.

    The thing to keep in mind about Rev. Wright is that he is a smart fellow. He’s been a very savvy operator, politically and otherwise, for decades. He has built a thriving, politically connected congregation on the South Side of Chicago that has done some very good work over the years. Powerful people have turned to him for guidance and advice.

    So it’s not like he’s naïve politically. He knows exactly what he’s doing. Forget the gibberish about responding to attacks on the black church. That is not what the reverend’s appearance before the press club was about. He was responding to what he perceives as an attack on him.

    This whole story is about Senator Obama’s run for the White House and absolutely nothing else. Barack Obama went to Rev. Wright’s church as a young man and was blessed with the Christian bona fides that would be absolutely essential for a high-profile political career.

    Faster than anyone could have imagined, the young Mr. Obama became Senator Obama and then the leading candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination. Then came the videotaped sermons and the roof caved in on Rev. Wright’s reputation. Senator Obama had no choice but to distance himself, and he did it as gently as he felt he could.

    My guess is that Mr. Wright felt he’d been thrown under a bus by an ungrateful congregant who had benefited mightily from his association with the church and who should have rallied to his former pastor’s defense. What we’re witnessing now is Rev. Wright’s “I’ll show you!” tour.

    For Senator Obama, the re-emergence of Rev. Wright has been devastating. The senator has been trying desperately to bolster his standing with skeptical and even hostile white working-class voters. When the story line of the campaign shifts almost entirely to the race-in-your-face antics of someone like Mr. Wright, Mr. Obama’s chances can only suffer.

    Beyond that, the apparent helplessness of the Obama campaign in the face of the Wright onslaught contributes to the growing perception of the candidate as weak, as someone who is unwilling or unable to fight aggressively on his own behalf.

    Hillary Clinton is taunting Mr. Obama about his unwillingness to participate in another debate. Rev. Wright is roaming the country with the press corps in tow, happily promoting the one issue Mr. Obama had tried to avoid: race.

    Mr. Obama seems more and more like someone buffeted by events, rather than in charge of them. Very little has changed in the superdelegate count, but a number of those delegates have expressed concern in private over Mr. Obama’s inability to do better among white working-class voters and Catholics.

    Rev. Wright is absolutely the wrong medicine for those concerns. ”

Is it Rev. Wright vs. Sen. Obama ??

The following quote is the headline from a Chicago Tribune Article taken off the Net:

Rev. Wright says ‘devious’ forces behind use of his words against Obama

I listened to Rev. Wright on the news from two of his Washington speechs and IMHO the good Reverend is trying to undermine the candidacy of Barack Obama.

Preposterous you say! Not so say I, he references things that Obama would like to keep out of the media such as Obama’s middle name “Hussein” and the attachment that Obama has with Reverend Wright. He will not apologize for his hate filled remarks and demands that the United States apologize for the treatment of African’s long ago.

I think, because of Wright’s actions and words (remember “WORDS DO MATTER”) that he is doing more DAMAGE to Obama than help and the reason is that Wright is trying to keep his own image clean.

Wright has more than had his 15 minutes of fame, lets let this anti-American and apparently anti-white preacher retire in peace in his majestic residence paid for by the people of his church.

That is if he will let us!!

He will not be quiet. He will not be muzzled. He is an attention whore!

What Obama and Clinton will due to our TAXES if Elected!

Taxes…Whether Democrat or a Republican you will find these statistics enlightening and amazing.

  www.taxfoundation.org/publications/show/151.html

Taxes under Clinton 1999                   Taxes under Bush 2008

Single making 30K – tax $8,400             Single making 30K – tax $4,500

Single making 50K – tax $14,000          Single making 50K – tax $12,500

Single making 75K – tax $23,250          Single making 75K – tax $18,750

Married making 60K – tax $16,800       Married making 60K- tax $9,000

Married making 75K – tax $21,000       Married making 75K – tax $18,750

Married making 125K – tax $38,750     Married making 125K – tax $31,250

 

Both democratic candidates will return to the higher tax rates

 

It is amazing how many people that fall into the categories above think Bush is screwing them and Bill Clinton was the greatest President ever. If Obama or Hillary are elected, they both say they will repeal the Bush tax cuts and a good portion of the people that fall into the categories above can’t wait for it to happen. This is like the movie “The Sting” with Paul Newman; you scam somebody out of some money and they don’t even know what happened.

Change – Democratic Style

 CHANGE!

 

 

 In just two years .  Remember the election in 2006?

 Thought you might like to read the following:

 A little over one year ago:


 

1) Consumer confidence stood at a 2 1/2 year high;

2) Regular gasoline sold for $2.19 a gallon;

3) The unemployment rate was 4.5%.


 

Since voting in a Democratic Congress in 2006 we have seen:


 

1) Consumer confidence plummet;

2) The cost of regular gasoline soar to over $3.50 a gallon;

3) Unemployment is up to 5% (a 10% increase);

4) American households have seen $2.3 trillion in equity value evaporate (stock and mutual fund losses);

5) Americans have seen their home equity drop by $1.2 trillion dollars;

6) 1% of American homes are in foreclosure.


 

America voted for change in 2006, and we got it!


 

Remember it’s Congress that makes law not the President. He has to work with what’s handed to him.

 

Quote of the Day……..“My friends, we live in the greatest nation in the history of the world.  I hope you’ll join with me as we try to change it.” — Barack Obama

Obama said NO and people DIED!

Take a look at this quick video and see what YOU think.

http://www.exposeobama.com/obamanationbe.html

If you believe it has merit, send it on to your friends and your email buddies!

Then, when it comes time to vote, vote for a man who will take the steps to stop gang violence and put those murderers in prison where they belong, not for someone who gives them a license to kill! 

Vote for John McCain – BIG MAC!

Is Kerry on the Mat and Down for the Count??

I give THANKS for the following article to CQ Politics online, one of my daily visit sites:

Spook candidate challenges Swiftboater: Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry , the 2004 Democratic presidential standard-bearer, suddenly has some real opposition, it looks like — and somebody cut from similar cloth. Republican Jeff Beatty has held a number of national security slots: Army Delta Force in Somalia, hostage rescue ops at the FBI and counterterrorism missions with the CIA, among others. Now he’s snuck up on the presumed GOP frontrunner for the nomination, former Air Force Lt. Col. Jim Ogonowski. According to the Boston Herald’s analysis of new federal campaign filings, “security guru and former Delta Force soldier Jeff Beatty has raised $1 million, far eclipsing the $307,000 collected by Ogonowski.”

Maybe John “F—ing” Kerry has met his match. If Kerry loses, it could not happen to a niecr guy (except maybe Teddy “The Smimmer”  Kennedy).

OOHRAH!

“Wrecking The Economy To Win Elections”

The following post was taken from the blog: http://www.mindlessandspineless.blogspot.com

It was written by a friend of mine and I thought it had such great content in a concise format that I want to bring it to my readers as well.

“Wrecking The Economy To Win Elections”

“Both the Democrat Party and the Mainstream Media (MSM) operate on the old adage that says, “Tell a lie often enough, and it becomes the truth.”.

This has been very evident on the reporting of the economy over the pass sixteen plus years.

During the Clinton years, it was first claimed that Mr. Clinton had inherited a bad economy from Bush I. Totally not true, but they had to cover their lying behinds because they used that argument to get Clinton elected (“It’s the Economy stupid”).

Then in Clinton’s final year, while every economic indicator said that the U.S. economy was in recession, the MSM painted a very rosy picture in an effort to elect Gore.

When it was George W. Bush that won the election, the MSM claimed that he had inherited a wonderful economy and he quickly ruined it. They have been negative on the economy during the entire Bush administration, even though the unemployment rates have been at or near record low levels. The stock market has grown at a tremendous rate, but they only emphasize the declines, even if they only last one day. They ignore or outright lie about the benefits gained by the “Bush” tax cuts. Those cuts have, in fact, created the highest tax revenues in history.

In 2006, the Congress switched from Republican controlled to Democrat control largely on the basis of lies about the economy, lies about corruption, and lies about the war. In truth the economy was quite good, the Bush administration had only one member charged and convicted of anything. That one conviction was for lying to a FBI agent and it took the perjured testimony of Tim Russert to win a conviction.

The Clinton administration had several dozen convicted of actual crimes, but the MSM saw fit to play down real corruption. In spite of numerous daily lies about the War, exit polls indicated that it was not a significant factor in the election. MSM claims otherwise, again, trying to control the thinking of American voters.

Currently, we have a few problems which affect a few sections of the economy. Gasoline is at $4.00/gal, a much needed adjustment of the housing market is occurring, and food price are rising (to a large extent because we are converting food to fuel), but the vast majority of citizens are doing well. Key economic indicators do not indicate that the economy is in recession. But we are going to have a recession simply because, “Tell a lie often enough, and it becomes the truth”. The Democrat’s do not hesitate to tell the lie, nor does the MSM hesitate to air or print the lie.

It is sickening to think that the Mainstream Media and the Democrat Party are actively working to wreck the economy and damage the well being of many citizens just to win an election, but they have done it before and they are doing it again.”

The message M&S sends is clear to anyone thinking with at least half of their brain!

A Black Columnist Give His View on Barack Obama

What a Black Columnist has to say about Obama.

 

Ken Blackwell – Columnist for the New York Sun

 

It’s an amazing time to be alive in America . We’re in a year of firsts in this presidential election: the first viable woman candidate; the first viable African-American candidate; and, a candidate who is the first frontrunning freedom fighter over 70. The next president of America will be a first.

 

We won’t truly be in an election of firsts, however, until we judge every candidate by where they stand. We won’t arrive where we should be until we no longer talk about skin color or gender. Now that Barack Obama steps to the front of the Democratic field, we need to stop talking about his race, and start talking about his policies and his politics.

 

The reality is this: Though the Democrats will not have a nominee until August, unless Hillary Clinton drops out, Mr. Obama is now the frontrunner, and its time America takes a closer and deeper look at him. Some pundits are calling him the next John F. Kennedy. He’s not. He’s the next George McGovern. And it’s time people learned the facts.

 

Because the truth is that Mr. Obama is the single most liberal senator in the entire U.S. Senate. He is more liberal than Ted Kennedy, Bernie Sanders, or Mrs. Clinton. Never in my life have I seen a presidential frontrunner whose rhetoric is so far removed from his record. Walter Mondale promised to raise our taxes, and he lost. George McGovern promised military weakness, and he lost. Michael Dukakis promised a liberal domestic agenda, and he l ost.

 

Yet Mr. Obama is promising all those things, and he’s not behind in the polls. Why? Because the press has dealt with him as if he were in a beauty pageant. Mr. Obama talks about getting past party, getting past red and blue, to lead the United States of America . But let’s look at the more defined strokes of who he is underneath this superficial “beauty.”

 

Start with national security, since the president’s most important duties are as commander-in-chief. Over the summer, Mr. Obama talked about invading Pakistan, a nation armed with nuclear weapons; meeting without preconditions with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who vows to destroy Israel and create another Holocaust; and Kim Jong II, who is murdering and starving his people, but emphasized that the nuclear option was off the table against terrorists – something no president has ever taken off the table since we created nuclear weapons in the 1940s. Even Democrats who have worked in national security condemned all of those remarks. Mr. Obama is a foreign-policy novice who would put our national security at risk.

 

Next, consider economic policy. For all its faults, our health care system is the strongest in the world. And free trade agreements, created by Bill Clinton as well as President Bush, have made more goods more affordable so that even people of modest means can live a life that no one imagined a generation ago. Yet Mr. Obama promises to raise taxes on “the rich.” How to fix Social Security? Raise taxes. How to fix Medicare? Raise taxes. Prescription drugs? Raise taxes. Free college? Raise taxes. Socialize medicine? Raise taxes. His solution to everything is to have government take it over. Big Brother on steroids, funded by your paycheck.

 

Finally, look at the social issues. Mr. Obama had the audacity to open a stadium rally by saying, “All praise and glory to God!” but says that Christian leaders speaking for life and marriage have “hijacked” – hijacked – Christianity. He is pro-partial birth abortion, and promises to appoint Supreme Court justices who will rule any restriction on it unconstitutional. He espouses the abortion views of Margaret Sanger, one of the early advocates of racial cleansing. His spiritual leaders endorse homosexual marriage, and he is moving in that direction. In Illinois , he refused to vote against a statewide ban – ban – on all handguns in the state. These are radical left, Hollywood , and San Francis co values, not Middle America values.

 

The real Mr. Obama is an easy target for the general election. Mrs. Clinton is a far tougher opponent. But Mr. Obama could win if people don’t start looking behind his veneer and flowery speeches. His vision of “bringing America together” means saying that those who disagree with his agenda for America are hijackers or warmongers. Uniting the country means adopting his liberal agenda and abandoning any conflicting beliefs.

 

But right now everyone is talking about how eloquent of a speaker he is and – yes – they’re talking about his race. Those should never be the factors on which we base our choice for president. Mr. Obama’s radical agenda sets him far outside the American mainstream, to the left of Mrs. Clinton.

 

It’s time to talk about the real Barack Obama. In an election of firsts, let’s first make sure we elect the person who is qualified to be our president in a nuclear age during a global civilizational war.

 

Subject: Kind of scary, wouldn’t you think Remember–God is good, and is in time, on time–every time. According to The Book of Revelations the anti-christ is: The anti-christ will be a man, in his 40s, of MUSLIM descent, who will deceive the nations with persuasive language, and have a MASSIVE Christ-like appeal….the prophecy says that people will flock to him and he will promise false hope and world peace, and when he is in power, will destroy everything. Is it OBAMA?? I STRONGLY URGE each one of you to repost this as many times as you can! Each opportunity that you have to send it to a friend or media outlet…do it! If you think I am crazy..Im sorry but I refuse to take a chance on the “unknown” candidate

Obama and Clinton unqualified to be President


The four of you voting against English as America’s official language are
current or former presidential candidates: Senator Biden, Senator Clinton, Senator Dodd and Senator Obama. You are or were four Senators who wanted or want to lead America, but you won’t or don’t have the courage to vote in favor of English as America’s official language when 91% of American citizens want English officially designated as our language.


It is the second time in the last several months these so called Senators
have disgraced themselves as ‘political hacks’ unworthy of being
Senators and certainly unqualified to serve as the President of the
United States.

 

Your vote reflects betrayal and political surrender. It violates your
Pledge of Allegiance, dishonors historical principle, rejects patriotism, borders on
traitorous action and,  makes you unfit to serve as a
United States Senator. Impeachment, recall 
is warranted.
