Another Bonehead Move by Barack Hussein Obama’s White House!

“WASHINGTON – An administration official says a presidential Boeing 747 and a fighter jet flew low near ground zero in New York City Monday because the White House Military Office wanted to update its file photo of the president’s plane near the Statue of Liberty.This official said the White House Military Office told the Federal Aviation Administration that it periodically updates file photos of Air Force One near national landmarks, like the statute in New York harbor and the Grand Canyon.

The official requested anonymity to give more details than the official White House announcement that took the blame.

The incident on Monday caused a brief panic among workers, who weren’t warned. They recalled the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.”

In my opinion is is another bonehead move by Barack Hussein Obama’s White House. In addition it shows a complete waste of resources when the White House is asking citizens to cut back, the White House is pissing away resources and money!

Just another Obama disaster in the first 100 days of shame on America!

Barack Obama Wants To Make United States More Like Europe

Irwin Seltzer writes the following article in The Sunday Times OnLine.
It is spot on and to the point about how Barack Hussein Obama wants to socialize America and make it more like European countries he is so enamored with.

From The Sunday TimesApril 26, 2009

Obama wants to make America more like Europe
Irwin Stelzer
Barack Obama is unhappy with much that preceded his occupation of the White House, and not only his predecessor’s foreign policy, for which he is a serial apologiser. Pre-Obama domestic policy also displeases him: any prosperity the nation enjoyed, he says, was built on a foundation of sand. That, won’t happen again: the trillions of debt he is loading on the nation’s books will enable us to erect our post-recession house on solid rock. Our world will never be the same again. (so says Obama)
Of course, it never has been: the march of technology has enabled us to travel faster, age more slowly, entertain ourselves differently, and build air-conditioned homes in the miserably hot south and southwest, and in our nation’s steamy capital. But the president has something more in mind and, with control of both houses of Congress, the power to change the way we live now. Let’s make a few guesses as to where those changes will take us.

Top of the president’s change list is the way we consume energy. He believes our use of carbon-based fuels is causing the globe to heat up, with all the dire consequences conjured up by Al Gore as he sits in the library of his home, probably the largest single consumer of energy of any private residence in America. By one means or another, the president will make the use of oil, natural gas and especially coal so expensive that consumers will be forced to use less energy, and rely more for the energy we do use on costly wind and solar power, paid for with tax-funded subsidies or higher utility bills. (Obama will put taxes on Electric, Natural Gas and Gasoline so high we could not afford them)
Also, the day of spacious, safe cars is to end, with the exception of the limousines favoured by congressional leaders and White House appointees. Given the financial dependence of GM and Chrysler on government handouts, and regulations setting fuel-efficiency standards, these companies will be forced to produce and attempt to sell the small, preferably battery-powered vehicles beloved of environmentalists and congressmen from urban areas who rarely take to the open road. This will encourage more Americans to migrate to public transport because fewer will want to endure cramped, no-longer comfortable car rides to and from work. (I think the Government will be running GM and Chrysler before long)
Which is only one reason why it will become less popular to live in the suburbs. Another will be the new regulations that will be imposed on banks, preventing them from the excessive leveraging that has brought so many to Washington, begging bowls rattling. They will need more capital, which means their costs will be higher, which in turn means they will have to charge borrowers more. Higher interest rates make home ownership less attractive than renting (even if the interest costs of builders of apartment flats also rise), and large homes more difficult to afford. So more Americans will be unable to pursue the dream of home ownership, and fewer of the homes that so offend egalitarians and greens – with multiple-car garages and walk-in fridges – will be built. (Condos, Townhouses and multiple rental units will rise in numbers)
The president will also change the way Americans receive their healthcare. Under the mistaken assumption that the uninsured do not receive proper healthcare – many without insurance are too young and healthy to need it, and the poor are treated without charge at local hospitals – the president will raise taxes or force businesses to pay for insurance cover for all Americans. The result will be a system closer to that in Britain, with all its disadvantages – bureaucracy, rationing, waiting lists and a slower rate of innovation. (rationing of services and medication will be one result)

In the end, Americans will live in smaller houses, drive cars more like those to which Europeans are accustomed, and will rely on European-style healthcare. In short, we will be more like you, which is after all the social democratic model to which Obama wants to convert America. (once again he states the obvious that America will become socialized)

The president also intends to change the way our children are educated. He says he wants teachers to be compensated on a merit basis, and parents free to select schools they deem best for their children. But his allies in the teachers’ union won’t go along with this, and in the one test of his rhetoric so far he has allowed Democrats in Congress to kill a programme that provided funds to allow a few thousand poor, mostly black children to escape the horrors of the Washington DC school system and instead attend swanky private schools of the sort in which he has enrolled his daughters.
(this is BIG, Obama vs the Unions that supported him, who will be the victor? So far it is the Unions!)
There is no doubt about one thing: the president intends to increase the number of students financially able to attend college. America will, in the end, have more degree-wielding students and fewer horny-handed sons of toil. That will produce another result the president has in mind as he rebuilds the American house on his rock: the earnings premium paid to highly educated workers will decline as the number of men and women competing for those jobs increases, and the relative wages of the fewer blue-collar – by then, green-collar – workers will increase. (everyone goes to college for free and their dreams of high paying prestigeous jobs are gone!)

This greater equality of income distribution is, for Obama, thesummum bonum. He is redesigning the tax system to narrow the after-tax gap between “the rich” – family incomes above $250,000 (£170,000) a year – and lower earners, even if the economic cost of such a move (reduced risk-taking) is quite high. Equality, not economic efficiency, is his goal. Which is why he favours raising the rate at which capital gains are taxed even if the result is a fall, rather than an increase, in the Treasury’s net receipts. (the key words are “Equality, not economic efficiency, is his goal”)

There will be more changes pushed through by a man who regards himself as a “transformational” president, in the mould of Abraham Lincoln and Franklin Roosevelt. Women will be “empowered” to bring more lawsuits if they feel discriminated against, eithernow or in years gone by;
Love him or loathe him, Obama will leave an America vastly different from the one he inherited. Unless, of course, sooner rather than later, voters decide they rather liked the older model.

Murtha’s $31 Million in Earmarks – Could they be “Pay to Play”?

You will find a CBS report below on Earmarks by John Murtha and how they seem in the surface to be a little like Pay to Play. These of course are the earmarks that BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA said would not be allowed to flourish in his administration. Read the article and see if you possibly may come up with some questions in your own mind regarding Murtha’s Earmarks!

Spring in Washington is “earmark season” – a busy time for Congressman John Murtha.

“That’s my business,” Murtha said. “I’ve been in it for 35 years.”

As head of a powerful Defense committee, Murtha controls hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars, reports CBS News investigative correspondent Sharyl Attkisson. And he’s not shy about directing money to those who give generously to his election campaigns.

CBS News has learned that this month, Murtha is steering new earmarks toward 10 companies that recently donated to his campaign.

Murtha wants $8 million for Argon ST, a defense contractor whose CEO gave Murtha the maximum allowed by law – $2,400 by an individual. He’s directing a $5 million earmark toward Advanced Acoustic Concepts, which also gave the max – $5,000 for a political action committee – to his campaign. In all, 10 recent Murtha donors are slated to receive $31 million in Murtha earmarks for 2010.

Taxpayer watchdogs may not like how it looks, but it’s not against the law unless donations were required in order to receive the earmarks. Looking for evidence of wrongdoing, the FBI has recently raided offices of two other companies linked to Murtha.

“The sooner it gets to a bright line that’s a direct connection of ‘you give me money, you’re going to get taxpayer dollars,’ that’s when you really cross the line,” said Steve Ellis, with Taxpayers for Common Sense.

That line was crossed in one case, according to a defense contractor who spoke to us on condition of anonymity for fear of losing government contracts.

The contractor was set to receive $1 million tax dollars. He said the military told him the money would come through a company called Commonwealth Research Institute, whose parent company, Concurrent Technologies, ranked among the largest earmark recipients. Both were set up with Murtha’s help in his own hometown. The defense contractor said Commonwealth officials told him to get the money, he should “consider opening an office” in Johnstown, Murtha’s hometown, and chided his company for not giving “enough campaign contributions to Murtha,” and not making “a showing at Murtha’s annual defense contractor fair.”

The contractor told CBS News: “I wouldn’t do it. We’re just not going to play.” He didn’t get the funds.

“You called this a ‘shakedown?'” Attkisson asked Ellis.

“If you want the money then you’ve got to do these things, and that’s being shaken down,” Ellis said.

“Is there anything illegal about that?” Attkisson asked.

“It’s hard to tell until you have all the details,” Ellis said. “Illegality is a tricky thing on this. It’s very hard to prove a quid pro quo because most of these things aren’t written down.”

Commonwealth, subpoenaed in a separate federal probe, would only say it’s always encouraged companies to relocate to Johnstown, and attend Murtha’s fair to promote growth – but does “not encourage anyone to make campaign contributions.”

Murtha wouldn’t comment for our report. He did recently tell a home state newspaper that he’s only trying to bring home the bacon.

“If I’m corrupt,” said the congressman, “It’s because I take care of my district.”

Barack Obama’s Janet Napolitano shows HIS disrespect for the military!

The following op-ed from the Washington Times says volumes about the administration of Barack Hussein Obama’s feelings toward the American Military, both active and veteran. In addition it well shows how the administration lumps terrorism and rightwing politics togther INCORRECTLY as one group. Mt Cahill points out to the reader that the leftwing , LIBERAL SIDE HAS HAD MORE THAN ITS SHARE OF TERRORIST GROUPS AND STILL DOES!

It seems that DHS would have enought o do with concentrating on the maintaining of order at our borders and other points of entry with out resorting to the lambasting of Barack Hussein Obama’s political foes and the military who defends this country.

“Secretary of Homeland Security Janet A. Napolitano’s recent effort to characterize opposition to the president’s left-wing policies as right-wing terrorism is self-serving and intellectually dishonest (“Federal agency warns of radicals on right,” Page 1, Tuesday). Her attempt to single out veterans is particularly disingenuous and reveals the administration’s utter disrespect for American servicemen and -women. There is simply no factual basis for this shameless characterization.

The secretary’s attempt to associate the right with terrorism is also misleading. The left has a long record of domestic terrorism. Examples of left-wing terrorism include: the Puerto Rican Nationalists of the FALN, the Black Panthers, the Symbionese Liberation Army (SLA), and the Weather Underground. Indeed, as the secretary should know, President Obama’s former associate and political supporter, William C. Ayers, is the former leader of a left-wing terrorist group. More recently, members of such groups as the Animal Liberation Front and Earth Liberation Front have committed violent acts against individuals and property.

Clearly, terrorist groups can be and have been associated with a broad range of political ideologies. Mrs. Napolitano’s attempt to associate veterans, proponents of the Second Amendment and opponents of abortion and illegal immigration with domestic terrorism is shameless. The Department of Homeland Security needs to keep its focus on the true threats from outside America’s borders. All thoughtful Americans should demand the secretary’s immediate resignation.”

I call upon Barck HusseinObama to remove Janet Napolitano from office and apologize for her actions while avting as his spokesperson/Director of DHS!

Obama say he will take care of you but Instead he takes from you!

Here is a copy, word for word, of what the Administration of Barack Hussein Obama has done to Seniors on Social Security. Prices will go up but Social security will not. Is this an example of his tax cuts? Seems more like an example of how he uses fancy words and promises to convince people he will take care of them and then turns around and takes from them instead.

If you meet Barack Hussein Obama it may be prudent to keep your hands in your pocket and not shake hands with him. He may steal your fingers!

Zero Social Security COLA Increase Until 2013
Congressional Budget Office Issues Unprecedented Projection
For No COLA Increases From 2010 – 2012

April 6, 2009 (Washington, DC) – The 37 million Americans aged 65 and over who receive a Social Security check each month are forecast to receive no increase in their Social Security checks until 2013.

Seniors have never failed to receive an annual increase of less than 1.3 percent since automatic Cost of Living Adjustments (COLA) went into effect in 1975, and have never received less than 5.9 percent over a three-year period.

The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) issued the forecast in its March 2009 publication, A Preliminary Analysis of the President’s Budget and an Update of CBO’s Budget and Economic Outlook.

The analysis reads, “No COLAs are currently projected for [Social Security] from 2010 through 2012; the COLA would amount to less than 2 percent in all future years.”

“If a nation can be judged on how well it treats its most vulnerable citizens, I’m afraid we’re slipping badly behind,” said Daniel O’Connell, chairman of The Senior Citizens League. “Too many of us seniors are being forced to choose between prescription drugs, nutritious food, and heat during winter, and we must do a better job of protecting the nation’s elderly.”

A recently released survey returned by 808 members of The Senior Citizens League found that while 56 percent of respondents said their costs increased more than $119 per month last year, just one percent said they received a COLA of $119 or more this year.

Supporters of a zero COLA increase will likely argue that a zero COLA during deflationary times is fair. However, they do not mention that the way the COLA is calculated fails to accurately track senior costs, since it is based on the spending habits of young, urban workers. As a result, senior costs may go up during periods of deflation, reducing their buying power even further.

The Consumer Price Index for Elderly Consumers, or CPI-E, more accurately reflects senior costs. By tying the annual increase in the COLA to the CPI-E instead of the CPI-W, or Consumer Price Index for Urban Wage Earners and Clerical Workers, seniors would see much needed relief in their monthly checks during most years.

For example, a senior who retired with a benefit of $460 in 1984 would have received almost $12,014 more over the past 26 years with the CPI-E.

Some Random Thoughts On Barack Hussein Obama’s New Dog

The dog, a Portuguese Water Dog, has been given the name BO!

Think about it, BO Those are Barack Obama’s initials! How cute is that. Have a dog and give it your initials so you can further stoke the fires of your oversized ego everytime someone talks about it or calls it!

Think also about the timing of BO’s arrival at the White House (originally BHO said it would be waiting when they moved in – remember?) the dog has taken some of the heat off BHO from the public because of some of the economic miracles he touted have not happened and both Democrats and Republicans are unhappy as well as the voters. He is going down in the polls (see yesterday’s article).

Think also if it is not strange that Teddy “the Swimmer” Kennedy would have “Water Dogs” as pets. What an ironic choice for him to have.

Just about all the Presidents that I recall have had a dog at one time or another during their time in the White House. However, I can not recall any President or dog that has received as much fan fair and newspeper ink as BHO and BO! I can only hope that now that he is firmly ensconced in the White House that we will not have to endure a daily up date on the wonderment and happenings of BO as we are subjected to on BHO.

I wonder “who” will be responsible to clean up after BO? Think about this question for a minute!

Barack Obama Losing Ground according to Rasmussen Poll

Daily Presidential Tracking Poll
Monday, April 13, 2009

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows that 34% of the nation’s voters now Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Thirty-two percent (32%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of +2. That matches his LOWEST TOTAL TO DATE! .

The Presidential Approval Index is calculated by subtracting the number who Strongly Disapprove from the number who Strongly Approve. It is updated daily at 9:30 a.m. Eastern

I don’t think this is the CHANGE Obama was hoping for!

This does not look very favorable with less than 100 days in office. It appears that people are waking up to Barack Hussein Obama and his socialist agenda!

Could THIS Give Barack Hussein Obama Control of the Internet?

Two bills have recently been introduced in the Senate By Sen, Jay Rockefeller (D-W.V.) that have a working title of CYBERSECURITY ACT of 2009. Their bill numbers are S.773 and S.778. None other than the Queen of the RINO’s, Olympia Snow (R-Maine), is the Co-Sponsor. You can find a working copy of the bill at: http://cdt.org/security/CYBERSEC4.pdf
This draft also outlines plans to allow the Secretary of Commerce access to all private information networks that are thought to be critical to the nation’s security without regard to any policies restricting that access.

The newly created Office of the National Cybersecurity Advisor, reports directly to President Barack Hussein Obama and will have the mandate of that office to enforce the provisions of the bill. This brings into question what else will the new department (notice goivernment is getting bigger and bigger under Obama) be scrutinizing on the Internet? Will they be peeking at our communications? Will they target and look at specific individuals and organizations who Barack Hussein Obama may consider to be “not friendly” to his Presidency, issues, policies and practices?

“The cybersecurity threat is real,” said Leslie Harris, president of the Center for Democracy and Technology, “but such an inclusive federal intervention in private communications could harm both security and privacy.”

Larry Seltzer said in an eWeek article “The whole thing smells bad to me,”. He continued “I don’t like the chances of the government improving this situation by taking it over generally, and I definitely don’t like the idea of politicizing this authority by putting it in the direct control of the president.”

This is something we all should keep an eye on and make our opposition known in Washinton known about any part that would infringe upon the privacy we now have.

Obama and Congress should read this Quote from 2064 Years Ago!

No matter how you look at it, this makes complete sense!

“The national budget must be balanced. The public debt must be reduced; the arrogance of the authorities must be moderated and controlled. Payments to foreign governments must be reduced, if the nation doesn’t want to go bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance.” – Cicero 55 BC

Still Another Obama Choice for an Administrative Position has “UNINTENTIONAL TAX ERRORS”!

Health and Human Services nominee Kathleen Sebelius recently corrected three years of tax returns and paid more than $7,000 in back taxes after finding “unintentional errors”–the latest tax troubles for an Obama administration nominee. The Kansas governor explained the changes to senators in a letter dated Tuesday that the administration released. She said they involved charitable contributions, the sale of a home and business expenses. Sebelius said she filed the amended returns as soon as the errors were discovered by an accountant she hired to scrub her taxes in preparation for her confirmation hearings. She and her husband, Gary, a federal magistrate judge in Kansas, paid a total of $7,040 in back taxes and $878 in interest to amend returns from 2005-2007. Asked to comment on the amended tax returns as she left a Capitol Hill restaurant , Sebelius said, “We put out a statement and the statement speaks for itself.” Several Obama administration nominees have run into tax troubles, notably the president’s first nominee for HHS secretary, former Senate Democratic leader Tom Daschle. He withdrew from consideration while apologizing for failing to pay $140,000 in taxes and interest. The current Treasury Secretary, Timothy Geithner also is numbered in the group of tax cheaters picked by Barack Hussein Obama for high level administration positions.

What does this tell us 1) About those high in government and 2) those that Barack Hussein Obama thinks are golden?

Think about it!
