The FIGHT for The RIGHT!

Democrats– A Party of Lawyers. Obama is another and so is his wife!

This was sent to me by another blogger, I do not know where is comes from but it makes complete sense.

THE PARTY OF LAWYERS……

The Democrat Party has become the Lawyers’ Party. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are lawyers. Bill Clinton and Michelle Obama are lawyers. John Edwards, the other former Democrat candidate for president, is a lawyer, and so is his wife, Elizabeth. Every Democrat nominee since 1984 went to law school (although Gore did not graduate). Every Democrat vice presidential nominee since 1976, except for Lloyd Bentsen, went to law school. Look at the Democrat Party in Congress: the Majority Leader in each house is a lawyer.

The Republican Party is different. President Bush and Vice President Cheney were not lawyers, but businessmen. The leaders of the Republican Revolution were not lawyers. Newt Gingrich was a history professor; Tom Delay was an exterminator; and, Dick Armey was an economist. House Minority Leader Boehner was a plastic manufacturer, not a lawyer. The former Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist is a heart surgeon.

Who was the last Republican president who was a lawyer? Gerald Ford, who left office 31 years ago and who barely won the Republican nomination as a sitting president, running against Ronald Reagan in 1976. The Republican Party is made up of real people doing real work. The Democrat Party is made up of lawyers. Democrats mock and scorn men who create wealth, like Bush and Cheney, or who heal the sick, like Frist, or who immerse themselves in history, like Gingrich.

The Lawyers’ Party sees these sorts of people, who provide goods and services that people want, as the enemies of America. And, so we have seen the proc ession of official enemies, in the eyes of the Lawyers’ Party, grow. Against whom does Obama rail? Pharmaceutical companies, oil companies, hospitals, manufacturers, fast food restaurant chains, large retail businesses, bankers, and anyone producing anything of value in our nation.

This is the natural consequence of viewing everything through the eyes of lawyers. Lawyers solve problems by successfully representing their clients, in this case the American people. Lawyers seek to have new laws passed, they seek to win lawsuits, they press appellate courts to overturn precedent, and lawyers always parse language to favor their side.

Confined to the narrow practice of law, that is fine. But it is an awful way to govern a great nation. When politicians as lawyers begin to view some Americans as clients and other A m ericans as opposing parties, then the role of the legal system in our life becomes all-consuming. Some Americans become “adverse parties” of our very government. We are not all litigants in some vast social class-action suit. We are citizens of a republic that promises us a great deal of freedom from laws, from courts, and from lawyers.

Today, we are drowning in laws; we are contorted by judicial decisions; we are driven to distraction by omnipresent lawyers in all parts of our once private lives. America has a place for laws and lawyers, but that place is modest and reasonable, not vast and unchecked. When the most important decision for our next president is whom he will appoint to the Supreme Court, the role of lawyers and the law in America is too big. When lawyers use criminal prosecution as a continuation of politics by other means, as happened in the lynching of Scooter Li bby and Tom Delay, then the power of lawyers in America is too great. When House Democrats sue America in order to hamstring our efforts to learn what our enemies are planning to do to us, then the role of litigation in America has become crushing.

What about the recent Supreme Court decision that gives constitutional rights now to terrorists, who are not U.S. citizens living here under the rule of our Constitution, but who are murderous thugs, enemies during a time of war who are trying to destroy our country, our people and the Constitution!!!

We CANNOT expect the Lawyers’ Party to provide real change, real reform, or real hope in America. Most Americans know that a republic in which every major government action must be blessed by nine unelected judges is not what Washington intended in 1789. Most Americans grasp that we cannot fight a war when ACLU lawsuits snap at the heels of our defenders. Most Americans intuit that more lawyers and judges will not restore declining moral values or spark the spirit of enterprise in our economy.

Perhaps Americans will understand that change cannot be brought to our nation by the lawyers who already largely dictate American society and business. Perhaps Americans will see that hope does not come from the mouths of lawyers but from personal dreams nourished by hard work. Perhaps Americans will embrace the truth that more lawyers with more power will only make our problems worse.

And you know what they say, “If you shake hands with a lawyer, count your fingers”!

Obama and Tit for Tat and This and That! A good Article!

I am borrowing the following article from FamilySecurityMatters.com and that was written by someone I know well. It gives some short but great points to recent happenings in the Great Election of 2008! It was copied in its entirety and can be found at the web address at the end of the article.

Exclusive: Election 2008 – This ‘n’ That, Tit for Tat

 

A week ago, Barack Obama and John McCain spoke to the influential Hispanic group, the National Council of La Raza (NCLR). They did not speak together (maybe that was a good thing) but their appearances were a few hours apart. Their quest? To court the Latin American vote.

Obama made many passionate statements about his support for immigration reform during his talk to NCLR, but his comments clash with claims by Rep. Lincoln Diaz-Balart (R-Fla.) who says that Obama was “absolutely AWOL on the issue of immigration.” Diaz-Balart also claims that “Sen. Obama joined up with one of the most anti-immigrant senators, Sen. [Byron Dorgan (D-N.D.)], to try to kill the second leg of that stool, the temporary-worker program, [which] was an absolutely indispensable ingredient, and will be in the future, to immigration reform.”

Naturally, Obama also took an obligatory jab at McCain:

“I know Senator McCain used to buck his party on immigration in fighting for comprehensive reform, and I admired him for it and joined him in it. But when he was running for his party’s nomination, he abandoned that courageous stand and said that he wouldn’t even support his own legislation if it came up for a vote.

“I think it’s time for a president who won’t walk away from something as important as comprehensive reform just because it becomes politically unpopular. I will make it a top priority in my first year as the president of the United States of America.”

True, Sen. McCain, along with Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-MA), crafted a bill that would have given the green light for the 12 million illegal immigrants (underestimated amount?) to stay in the United States. After that failed, he tried once more, again failing to get the necessary support. He has now come out in favor of first dealing with securing the borders and then continuing his belief in immigration reform. Is this a flip-flop on his former position? Some say yes, others say no.

The immigration issue is an important one in the campaign that deserves a lot more attention. When the candidates are speaking at an event that is mainly attended by Hispanic voters it gets noticed, but not as a general subject for discussion. Perhaps the underlying reason for the lack of open comment on either side is the fear of public outcry, as was so evident last year when Congress was considering “comprehensive immigration reform.” Yet ignoring the problem will not make it go away.

Obama’s Associates a Constant Source of Embarrassment?

A few months ago, Obama went to the defense of his wife for saying the current presidential campaign is the first time she was really proud of her country. Obama also spent quite a bit of time defending Rev. Jeremiah Wright for damning America – before he chastised the retired pastor for the words he had previously defended.

More recently, Obama took steps to recover from disparaging comments about John McCain’s service in Vietnam made by his supporter, retired Gen. Wesley Clark. It all happened in a television interview by Bob Schieffer during a Face the Nation appearance by Gen. Clark. Clark was explaining that while McCain had served on the Armed Services Committee and traveled extensively, he never had any executive responsibility, was “untested,” and that the air squadron he commanded was not during wartime. Schieffer countered by saying that Obama had no executive experience there either and had not flown a fighter plane, been shot down and become a prisoner of war. Clark’s rejoinder? “Well, I don’t think riding in a fighter plane and getting shot down is a qualification to be president.”

When a reporter asked Obama if Clark owed McCain an apology, he responded with, “I guess my question is why, given all the vast numbers of things that we’ve got to work on, that that would be a top priority of mine?” For someone who promises to be an arbiter of the Politics of Change, this is disappointing. This is the sort of thing that should transcend the political differences of the two parties.

Hey Barack…Meet Me in Iraq!

Despite rejecting John McCain’s offer of making a joint trip to Iraq, Obama has announced his intention to go there himself to speak to the generals on the ground in order to get more information and “redefine his policies” concerning the war. Is it possible he is trying to show positive feeling toward the military? He has been to Iraq once before, approximately two years ago, but has never taken the time to speak personally with Gen. David Petraeus. It almost appears that Obama may be changing his stance on troop removal and pulling out of Iraq. This, if true, is another indication of his campaign moving away from the far Left part of the Democrat Party. However, covering his bases, Barack Obama penned an op-ed in the New York Times last week where he basically re-confirmed his position on troop withdrawal and ending U.S. participation in the Iraq War 16 months after he is elected. He emphatically stated that we would have no permanent bases in Iraq and “would redeploy the troops to focus in the broader security challenges we face.” He presumably meant Afghanistan. He also scheduled a news conference for Tuesday where he would fully outline his plan.

In his speech this week, Obama said, “As I have said many times, our troops have performed brilliantly in lowering the level of violence. General Petraeus has used new tactics to protect the Iraqi population. We have talked directly to Sunni tribes that used to be hostile to America, and supported their fight against al Qaeda. Shiite militias have generally respected a cease-fire. Those are the facts, and all Americans welcome them.” Yet despite their brilliance, why is Obama only now admitting that the surge has worked, when back in September of 2007 Gen. Petraeus spoke of ample improvement? What a difference winning the primary can make.

Hillary Cleaned House

Well not exactly, but she did remove all the negative Obama campaign information from her websites. All the accusatory comments about Sen. Obama have disappeared, leaving only the laudatory copy about Hillary herself. Could it be for the start of a Hillary for President Campaign in 2012? Is it partial payback for the monetary assistance Obama gave Clinton to help retire her campaign debt? We may never know. The Obama bashing is now left to the Republicans, and Senator Clinton will be campaigning for Obama’s election (sort of). Obama however, has not taken off the negatives against Clinton. Maybe he will after he is “sure” he has the nomination.

Does Jesse Jackson Want a Piece of Obama?

I think Jesse Jackson has actually outdone himself this time – which is hard to do, considering his 1984 reference to Jews as “Hymies” and to New York City as “Hymietown” was the epitome of poor taste and crude/rude commentary coming from Jackson. Well, the self-proclaimed spokesman for the black movement in America has managed to go even further with his hand/arm gesture and open mic comments that he would like to remove part of Obama’s – er, nether region! While he claimed he was upset with Obama for talking down to blacks, I think the real reason is that Jackson (who never met and camera or microphone he didn’t like) has virtually disappeared from the political spotlight and is no longer considered a voice for the black community. His apology was half-hearted and lacking in sincerity. I will further speculate that after watching the video on the news and the Internet several times, I can’t understand why he was whispering IF he thought the microphone was off! Personally, I can’t help but think it may have been a planned “slip of the tongue.” I don’t know what could be gained from such a divisive move but then again, dividing was always Jackson’s strong point (in addition to the fact that he has an ego as big as Alaska!).

It is commendable that his son, Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-Il), took Daddy to task and publicly criticized him for the inane comment. “I’m deeply outraged and disappointed in Rev. Jackson’s reckless statements,” the younger Jackson said. “I thoroughly reject and repudiate his ugly rhetoric,” said Jackson Jr.

Phil Gramm’s Got the Cure No One Seems to Want

Former Sen. Phil Gramm, who is an advisor on economics for the McCain campaign staff, was also on the hot seat last week for an interview he gave to the Washington Times. During that interview he said we have “become a nation of whiners…America is in decline…You’ve heard of mental depression, this is mental recession.” McCain denied that Gramm was speaking for him and Gramm confirmed that he was speaking only on his own behalf.

What’s the big deal here? I tend to agree with Gramm with regard to whining. I’ve heard more complaining recently than I can recall, and it starts at the top and trickles down. Our media shoulders much of this responsibility, as very seldom is there anything positive on the news. In fact, last Friday as I was driving through Chicago and listening to the news, I heard:

1) The price of oil has increased $5 per barrel

2) We are scheduled to have additional heavy rain storms all weekend

3) The Dow Jones Industrial Average is down by 165.00

Then he said that is all the news, “all negative and all depressing.” This is exactly what Gramm was referring to about the constant feed of bad news. After awhile it becomes a “mental recession” because people begin to believe that everything is going badly.

Gramm said his comments were reported out of context by the media and jumped on by McCain’s opponents. He did add that “we need more leadership and less whining.” I agree with Gramm on both comments 100%.

McCain and Obama are in a tug of war over the middle/working class voters with the main point being the economy and its effects on them. McCain made a comment a week or two ago that the perception we have regarding economic problems (read downturn) is psychological, so naturally the Obama camp put two and two together and came up with more than four. It’s all about politics and spin.

Another Politician Gone “Green”

Last weekend, the Green Party named former Democrat Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney as its Presidential candidate at their nominating convention that was held in Chicago. The controversial Ms. McKinney is possibly best remembered for slugging a Capitol Police officer in 2006 when he asked her for her identification to enter the Capitol. McKinney has pegged Rosa A. Clemente as her Vice Presidential running mate. Clemente, according to her Net profile appears to be an author, hip-hop artist and black activist – not necessarily in that order.

Obama Not Laughing at Bernie Mac’s Jokes

Last Saturday at an Obama fund raising event in Chicago, comic Bernie Mac told a joke referencing “Ho’s” and Obama told him he had to “clean up your act, this is a family affair.” Later, a spokesperson for Obama said Obama didn’t condone such statements and did not think Mac’s attempt at humor was appropriate. Remember, Don Imus lost his job for using the word “ho’s.” Will Bernie suffer the same fate, or will he be relegated to late-late-late night television?

Until next time…

Obama Losing Votes due to Race Mongering!

Obamas Race Mongering costing him…plummets in polls, support falls.

Guess all that hating on whitey will cost Obama and his racist wife and buddies. Too bad too, he had the chance to be a uniter, instead he was used as a stepping stone for the racists and hate mongers in his camp.

Seems reality is that racists come in all colors, and white Americans are starting to wake up to the myth that only white people, can be racist.

Obama not closing racial divide: poll
Wed Jul 16, 2008 7:43am EDT

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Americans are sharply divided by race ahead of the first presidential election in which a black candidate will represent a major party, a New York Times/CBS News poll showed on Tuesday,

The poll found that blacks and whites hold vastly different views of Sen. Barack Obama, an Illinois Democrat who would be the first black president, and are also divided on the state of race relations in the United States, the newspaper reported.

In the survey, 83 percent of blacks had a favorable opinion of Obama, compared with 31 percent of white voters.

Obama will face John McCain, a white Republican senator from Arizona, in the November 4 presidential election.

On the status of race relations, 59 percent of black respondents thought they were generally bad, compared with 34 percent of whites who thought the same way.

The nationwide telephone poll of 1,796 adults showed that 39 percent of blacks said there had been no real progress in recent years in getting rid of racial discrimination. Only 17 percent of whites said the same thing.

Twenty-seven percent of whites said too much had been made of problems facing black people, while half of blacks said not enough had been made of racial barriers faced by black people.

The poll was conducted July 7-14 and had a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.

A new Washington Post-ABC News poll found Obama leading McCain by 50 percent to 42 percent among registered voters nationwide. The poll also had Obama with a 19-point lead over McCain on the economy, the issue topping the list of voter concerns.

The poll of 1,119 adults and 971 registered voters was conducted July 10 through 13. The results had a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.

Lies “about” Obama and His Voter Base!!!

Please see COMMENT # 22 below. This blogger did research and found the email  below to be false. I followed up and saw comment alleged to be from the General disavowing the email and a snopes report now says FALSE and Raddatz denies.

I believe it is false but still do not believe Raddatz. My opinion only!

RWD

I can’t vouch for the truthfulness but sounds about right! In any case it is food for thought about the slanted news we all know that we receive on TV and in papers!

ABC News – Suspicions confirmed ! No mention of the 54 for McCain]
Date: Sun, 29 Jun 2008 23:33:00 +0000

 

Just in case you happened to see the ABC News piece
(if you watch ABC News) with interviews of 5 military folks in Iraq – 3
planned to vote for Obama and 2 for Hillary; no mention of any McCain
supporters. 
Well, here’s the ”Rest of the Story.” 

 

This from Major General (ret) Buckman 


My niece, Katelyn, stationed at Baluud , Iraq was assigned, with others of her detachment, to be escort/guard/ watcher for Martha Raddatz of ABC News as she covered John McCain’s recent trip to Iraq    

 

Katelyn and her Captain stood directly behind Raddatz as she queried GI’s walking past. They kept count of the GI’s and you should remember these numbers. She asked 60 GI’s who they planned to vote for in November. 54 said John McCain, 4 for Obama and 2 for Hillary

 

 Katelyn called home and told her Mom and Dad to watch ABC news the next night because she was standing directly behind Raddatz and maybe they’d see her on TV. Mom and Dad of course, called and emailed all the kinfolk to watch the newscast and maybe see Katelyn.  

 

Well, of course, we all watched and what we saw wasn’t a glimpse of Katelyn, but got a hell’uva view of skewed news.  After a dissertation on McCain’s trip and speech, ABC showed 5 GI’s being asked by Raddatz how they were going to vote in November; 3 for Obama and 2 for Clinton .. No mention of the 54 for McCain.
 
If you don’t want to forward this  for fear of offending someone…
  YOU’RE PART OF THE PROBLEM !  
 
It is Time for America to Speak up!
