Something Smells Bad in Barack Hussein Obama’s Admistration and it’s Called The Way He and His Crew Lie to the American Public!

Transparency in Government the Obama Way is fully explained below using the Healthcare Bill as an example.

Barack Hussein Obama and his Democratic crew leaders agreed Tuesday to forget the normal conference committee to iron out the differences between the Senate and House healthcare bills.This means the Barack Hussein Obama, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi will reach an agreement to the liking of Barack Hussein Obama in closed door arm twisting or bribing meetings with Congress Toadies that may have a problem with Obamacare. Once they agree on how to screw us over, they will push the bill to the House where Pelosi will force it through and then on to the Senate where Reid will bribe (remember Nelson of Nebraska and Landrieu of Lousiana) members to say “YEA” instead of “NAY” and then it goes to Barack Hussein Obama for his already known approval to make it a law.The reason they went around the conference committee, a move that was decided at an Oval Office meeting is because it was done to dis-allow any lengthy discussion in the House or Senate that would either tie up the bill or even sidetrack it. All this just so Barack Hussein Obama can have HIS healthcare bill before he makes the State of The Union Address as he said he would shortly after being elected. It proves the liberals/Democrats don’t care what the people of this country think. They are only interested in themselves and how to please Barack Hussein Obama.

So much for transparency as Barack Hussein Obama loudly promised in his campaign. So much for listening to the People as he loudly said he would do in his campaign.

Barack Hussein Obama’s crew in Congress led by Reid and Pelosi are trampling OUR rights to get what THEY want and don’t even care anymore how THEY do or that YOU know they are doing it.

How damn brazen can THEY get?

Isn’t this enough to make you vomit?

Here is Proof Positive Barack Hussein Obama’s Popularity is Dropping Like a BIG Rock in the Eyeys of the Voters!

This poll (Rasmussen) is the best reporting poll on the Net. I don’t always like the numbers (:-)) but I feel they are honest. Take a quick read on what they have to say belwo about Barack Hussein Obama and how he and his policies are currently perceived by the voting public:

Daily Presidential Tracking Poll
Tuesday, November 24, 2009

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows that 27% of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Forty-two percent (42%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -15. This is the lowest Approval Index rating yet measured for President Obama.
Fifty-two percent (52%) of Democrats Strongly Approve while 68% of Republicans Strongly Disapprove. Among those not affiliated with either major political party, just 16% Strongly Approve and 51% Strongly Disapprove (
Forty-five percent (45%) want U.S. troops home from Afghanistan either right away or within a year.Forty-three percent (43%) are opposed to such a firm timetable.
Fifty-three percent (53%) of voters worry that the federal government will do too much when it comes to reacting to the nation’s financial problems. That’s up seven points since President Obama took office.
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 (sign up for free daily e-mail update). Updates are also available on Twitter and Facebook.
Overall, 45% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the President’s performance. That matches the lowest level of total approval yet measured for this president. Eighty-one percent (81%) of Democrats approve as do 33% of unaffiliated voters. Eighty-three percent (83%) of Republicans disapprove.
Among all voters, 54% now disapprove. (of Obama that is)
Support for the health care plan proposed by the President and Congressional Democrats has fallen to a new low of 38%. Sixty percent (60%) of voters believe passage of the bill will lead to higher health care costs.

All in all, it appears that Barack Hussein Obama is failing/falling in the eyes of the voters. It also appears that like the mid-term elections in 1994 when the Republicans took back both houses of Congress, it may happen again in 2010. Holy Moley, I hope so! I have to ask, as I often do, why is it that NONE of this is reported in the mainstream media?

Barack Obama is in a Great Hurry to get HIS Healthcare Bill Passed!

I am going to use today’s post to bring you a GREAT column by Ben Stein who is one of MY favorite writers. Ben is the author of BEN’S DIARY in The American Spectator and has contributed to numerous other conservative media outlets.

*WE FIGURED HIM OUT! By Ben Stein*

Why is President Barack Obama in such a hurry to get his socialized
medicine bill passed?

Because he and his cunning circle realize some basic truths:

The American people in their unimaginable kindness and trust voted for a
pig in a poke in 2008.
They wanted so much to believe Barack Obama was somehow better and
different from other ultra-leftists that they simply took him on faith.

They ignored his anti-white writings in his books.

They ignored his quiet acceptance of hysterical anti-American diatribes
by his minister, Jeremiah Wright.

They ignored his refusal to explain years at a time of his life as a
student.

They ignored his ultra-left record as a “community organizer,” Illinois
state legislator, and Senator.

The American people ignored his total zero of an academic record as a
student and teacher, his complete lack of scholarship when he was being
touted as a scholar.

Now, the American people are starting to wake up to the truth. Barack
Obama is a super likeable super leftist, not a fan of this country,
way, way too cozy with the terrorist leaders in the Middle East , way
beyond naïveté, all the way into active destruction of our interests and
our allies and our future. The American people have already awakened to
the truth that the stimulus bill — a great idea in theory — was really
an immense bribe to Democrat interest groups, and in no way an effort to
help all Americans.

Now, Americans are waking up to the truth that ObamaCare basically means
that every time you are sick or injured, you will have a clerk from the
Department of Motor Vehicles telling your doctor what he can and cannot do.

The American people already know that Mr. Obama’s plan to lower health
costs while expanding coverage and bureaucracy is a myth, a promise of
something that never was and never will be — a bureaucracy lowering
costs in a free society. Either the costs go up or the free society goes
away.

These are perilous times.. Mrs. Hillary Clinton, our Secretary of State,
has given Iran the go-ahead to have nuclear weapons, an unqualified
betrayal of the nation. Now, we face a devastating loss of freedom at
home in health care. It will be joined by controls on our lives to
“protect us” from global warming, itself largely a fraud if believed to
be caused by man.

Mr. Obama knows Americans are getting wise and will stop him if he
delays at all in taking away our freedoms. There is his urgency and our
opportunity. Once freedom is lost, America is lost. Wake up, beloved
America .

Ben Stein is a writer, actor, economist, and lawyer living in Beverly
Hills and Malibu . He writes “Ben Stein’s Diary” for every issue of The
American Spectator.

**They may have ruined my country and yours.**
**You must as an American FORWARD this to all, or you will wake up one
morning and your freedoms are no longer there. **

Obama, Democrats and Social Security – The Seniors Lose!

Social Security

For the first time in history, the Democratic Congress will not allow an
increase in the social security COLA (cost of living adjustment). In
fact, The Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation predicts there may not be
any COLA for the next three years. However, the per person monthly
Medicare insurance premium will be increased from the 2009 premium of
$96.40 to $104.20 in 2010 and to $ 120.20 for the year 2011.

Add to this the increasing costs of Medi-Gap and part “D” drug coverage and
the planned cuts in Medicare to help fund the administration’s new health care program.
It’s clear that Government insurance programs are not the pie-in-the-sky
health care benefit they want us to believe!

Advise all the seniors that you know.
Remind them to not vote for the incumbent senators and congressmen
in the 2010 and in the 2012 elections not to vote for Barack Hussein Obama either..

September 23, 2009 Posted by | 2010 elections, 2012 Elections, Blogroll, Congress, Democrat, Durbin, election, Healthcare, House, Joe Biden, Kerry, Kucinich, Liberal Democrat, Michelle Obama, Murtha, NOBAMA, Obama, pelosi, Political, POLITICS, President, Rahm Emanuel, Reid, Roland Burris, Senator, Social Security, Tax, Voting | , , , , , | 1 Comment

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.”

A Marine tells us of “The Axis of Idiots” including Barack Hussein Obama and Democratic Friends!

I picked this off a BLOG and thought it worth passing on to my readers!
A few words from a marine!!!!
‘THE Axis of Idiots’

Jimmy “The anti- American” Carter, you are the father of the Islamic Nazi movement. You threw the
Shah under the bus, welcomed the Ayatollah home, and then lacked the spine
to confront the terrorists when they took our embassy and our people
hostage. You’re the runner-in-chief.

Bill “THe Coward” Clinton, you played ring around the Lewinsky while the terrorists were
at war with us. You got us into a fight with them in Somalia and then you
ran from it. Your weak-willed responses to the U.S.S. Cole and the First
Trade Center Bombing and Our Embassy Bombings emboldened the killers. Each
time you failed to respond adequately, they grew bolder, until 9/11/2001.

John “The Liar” Kerry, dishonesty is your most prominent attribute. You lied about
American Soldiers in Vietnam . Your military service, like your life, is
more fiction than fact. You’ve accused our military of terrorizing women and
children in Iraq . You called Iraq the wrong war, wrong place, wrong time,
the same words you used to describe Vietnam . You’re a fake. You want to run
from Iraq and abandon the Iraqis to murderers just as you did to the
Vietnamese. Iraq, like Vietnam, is another war that you were for, before you
were against it.

John “The Pimple” Murtha, you said our military was broken. You said we can’t win
militarily in Iraq . You accused United States Marines of cold-blooded
murder without proof and said we should redeploy to Okinawa . Okinawa, John
? And the Democrats call you their military expert! Are you sure you didn’t
suffer a traumatic brain injury while you were off building your war hero
resume? You’re a sad, pitiable, corrupt and washed up politician. You’re not
a Marine, sir. You wouldn’t amount to a good pimple on a real Marine’s butt.
You’re a phony and a disgrace. Run away, John .

Little Dickie Durbin, you accused our Soldiers at Guantanamo of being Nazis, tenders
of Soviet style gulags and as bad as the regime of Pol Pot , who murdered
two million of his own people after your party abandoned Southeast Asia to
the Communists. Now you want to abandon the Iraqis to the same fate. History
was not a good teacher for you, was it? Lord help us! See Dick run.

Teddy “The Swimmer” Kennedy, for days on end you held poster-sized pictures from Abu Ghraib
in front of any available television camera. Al Jazeera quoted you saying
that the Iraqi’s torture chambers were open under new management. Did you
see the news, Teddy? The Islamic Nazis demonstrated another beheading for
you. If you truly supported our troops, you’d show the world poster-sized
pictures of that atrocity and demand the annihilation of it. Your
legislation stripping support from the South Vietnamese led to a communist
victory there. You’re a bloated, drunken fool bent on repeating the same
historical blunder that turned freedom-seeking people over to homicidal,
genoc idal maniacs. To paraphrase John Murtha, all while sitting on your
wide, gin-soaked rear-end in Washington.

Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden, Harry Reid, Al Bore, Carl Levine, Barbara Boxer, Diane Feinstein, Russ
Feingold, Hillary Clinton, Pat Leahy, Barack Hussein Obama,
Ted “The Swimmer” Kennedy Chuckie Schumer
, the
Hollywood Leftist morons, et al, ad nauseam: Every time you stand in front
of television cameras and broadcast to the Islamic Nazis that we went to war
because our President lied, that the war is wrong and our Soldiers are
torturers, that we should leave Iraq, you give the Islamic butchers – the
same ones that tortured and mutilated American Soldiers – cause to think
that we’ll run away again, and all they have to do is hang on a little
longer. It is inevitable that we, the infidels, will have to defeat the
Islamic jihadists. Better to do it now on their turf, than later on ours
after they have gained both strength and momentum.

American news media, the New York Times particularly: Each time you publish
stories about national defense secrets and our intelligence gathering
methods, you become one united with the sub-human pieces of camel dung that
torture and mutilate the bodies of American Soldiers. You can’t strike up
the courage to publish cartoons, but you can help Al Qaeda destroy my
country. Actually, you are more dangerous to us than Al Qaeda is. Think
about that each time you face Mecca to admire your Pulitzer.

You are America ‘s ‘AXIS OF IDIOTS.’ Your Collective Stupidity will destroy
us.
Self-serving politics and terrorist-abetting news scoops are more
important to you than our national security or the lives of innocent
civilians and Soldiers. It bothers you that defending ourselves gets in the
way of your elitist sport of politics and your ignorant editorializing.
There is as much blood on your hands as is on the hands of murdering
terrorists. Don’t ever doubt that. Your frolics will only serve to extend
this war as they extended Vietnam . If you want our Soldiers home as you
claim, knock off the crap and try supporting your country ahead of
supporting your silly political aims and aiding our enemies.

Yes, I’m questioning your patriotism. Your loyalty ends with self. I’m also
questioning why you’re stealing air that decent Americans could be
breathing. You don’t deserve the protection of our men and women in uniform.
You need to run away from this war, this country. Leave the war to the
people who have the will to see it through and the country to people who are
willing to defend it.

Our country has two enemies: Those who want to destroy us from the outside
and those who attempt it from within.

Republican or Democrat, which is your Dog?

I found the following in our local paper and immediately confirmed my suspicions that am the PROUD OWNER of a Republican Boxer dog!

In addition to the points below, her chew toys, which she knows by name are all named after prominent left wing politicians or hangers on. Her favorites are “Teddy the Swimmer Kennedy” known to her as Teddy (it’s an overstuffed frog) & a stuffed pig the is named “John The Porker Murtha” known to her as Piggy John! There is also “Martin the Monkey Sheen” which she calls simply Marty and a stuffed penguin named Al Bore!

Republican pets

• They bark at passing neighbors and traffic; home security is very important to them.

• Their ears perk up when Fox News comes on.

• They are a big spender at the local pet store.

• Strongly believe pet matrimony should occur only between two cats or two dogs.

• Believe in the second-amendment right to bare teeth and claws.

• Are for electric border fences around the yard.

• Want national ID tags for all pets.

• They advocate for the pet-tracking chip — you can never have too much surveillance.

Democratic pets

• They want universal veterinary care for all.

• They want their treats for free.

• They socialize with all breeds at the dog park.

• They prefer their owner uses biodegradable poop bags.

• Are very concerned with the rising cost of pet food.

• Have the young puppy and kitten vote locked.

• Want to end the war of dogs vs. cats once and for all.

• Think of Ralph Nader as the dog catcher.

Think about it!

Hope Rides Alone

This was sent to me from a friend via email and I felt that I should do my part to help the world to read it. I can only assume it is genuine, I have no way to verify but on the chance that it is not, the message still rings loud and clear:


“Let’s stop all the political nonsense, let’s stop all the bickering,
let’s stop all the bad news, and let’s stand and fight!”


 

 This young leader had a lot to say. Too bad he did not survive and go
on to provide his leadership to many others.

Here’s young man, young in years but wisdom far beyond his age. He was
killed in Iraq but left some words that need to be read. Not to take a
few minutes to do that would be a disservice to his sacrifice.

Please read and pass on to anyone you like

Very meaty piece of commentary from a fallen Warrior……

*************************************************************************

SGT. Edmund John Jeffers last few words were some of the most touching,
inspiring and most truthful words spoken since the tragedy of 9/11 – and
since our nation went to war.
SGT. Jeffers was a strong soldier and talented writer. He died in Iraq
on September 19, 2007. He was a loving husband, brother and son. His
service was more than this country could ever grasp – but the least you
can do for the man who sacrificed his life for you … is listen to what
he had to say.
Listen up and pay attention to all of the Cindy Sheehan’s and Al
Franken’s of the world. To MSNBC, CNN, and CBS. To all who call
themselves Americans …Hope Rides Alone.

Hope Rides Alone
By Eddie Jeffers

I stare out into the darkness from my post, and I watch the city burn to
the ground. I smell the familiar smells, I walk through the familiar
rubble, and I look at the frightened faces that watch me pass down the
streets of their neighborhoods. My nerves hardly rest; my hands are
steady on a device that has been given to me from my government for the
purpose of taking the lives of others. I sweat, and I am tired. My back
aches from the loads I carry. Young American boys look to me to direct
them in a manner that will someday allow them to see their families
again…and yet, I too, am just a boy….my age not but a few years more
than that of the ones I lead. I am stressed, I am scared, and I am
paranoid…because death is everywhere. It waits for me, it calls to me
from around street corners and windows, and it is always there.
There are the demons that follow me, and tempt me into thoughts and
actions that are not my own…but that are necessary for survival. I’ve
made compromises with my humanity. And I am not alone in this. Miles
from me are my brethren in this world, who walk in the same
streets…who feel the same things, whether they admit to it or not. And
to think, I volunteered for this… And I am ignorant to the rest of the
world…or so I thought.

But even thousands of miles away, in Ramadi , Iraq , the cries and
screams and complaints of the ungrateful reach me. In a year, I will be
thrust back into society from a life and mentality that doesn’t fit your
average man. And then, I will be alone. And then, I will walk down the
streets of America, and see the yellow ribbon stickers on the cars of
the same people who compare our President to Hitler. I will watch the
television and watch the Cindy Sheehan’s, and the Al Franken’s, and the
rest of the ignorant sheep of America spout off their mouths about a
subject they know nothing about.
It is their right, however, and it is a
right that is defended by hundreds of thousands of boys and girls
scattered across the world, far from home. I use the word boys and
girls, because that’s what they are. In the Army, the average age of the
infantryman is nineteen years old. The average rank of soldiers killed
in action is Private First Class. People like Cindy Sheehan are
ignorant. Not just to this war, but to the results of their idiotic
ramblings, or at least I hope they are. They don’t realize its effects
on this war. In this war, there are no Geneva Conventions, no cease
fires. Medics and Chaplains are not spared from the enemy’s brutality
because it’s against the rules. I can only imagine the horrors a
military Chaplain would experience at the hands of the enemy. The enemy
slinks in the shadows and fights a coward’s war against us. It is
effective though, as many men and women have died since the start of
this war. And the memory of their service to America is tainted by the
inconsiderate remarks on our nation’s news outlets. And every day, the
enemy changes…only now, the enemy is becoming something new. The enemy
is transitioning from the Muslim extremists to Americans. The enemy is
becoming the very people whom we defend with our lives. And they do not
realize it. But in denouncing our actions, denouncing our leaders,
denouncing the war we live and fight, they are isolating the military
from society…and they are becoming our enemy.

Democrats and peace activists like to toss the word “quagmire” around
and compare this war to Vietnam. In a way they are right, this war is
becoming like Vietnam. Not the actual war, but in the isolation of
country and military. America is not a nation at war; they are a nation
with its military at war. Like it or not, we are here, some of us for
our second, or third times; some even for their fourth and so on.
Americans are so concerned now with politics, that it is interfering
with our war. Terrorists cut the heads off of American citizens on the
Internet…and there is no outrage, but an American soldier kills an
Iraqi in the midst of battle,
and there are investigations, and
sometimes soldiers are even jailed…for doing their job. It is
absolutely sickening to me to think our country has come to this. Why
are we so obsessed with the bad news? Why will people stop at nothing to
be against this war, no matter how much evidence of the good we’ve done
is thrown in their face? When is the last time CNN or MSNBC or CBS
reported the opening of schools and hospitals in Iraq? Or the leaders of
terror cells being detained or killed? It’s all happening, but people
will not let up their hatred of Bush. They will ignore the good news,
because it just might show people that Bush was right.

America has lost its will to fight. It has lost its will to defend what
is right and just in the world. The crazy thing of it all is that the
American people have not even been asked to sacrifice a single thing.
It’s not like World War Two, where people rationed food, and turned in
cars to be made into metal for tanks. The American people have not been
asked to sacrifice anything. Unless you are in the military or the
family member of a service member, its life as usual…the war doesn’t
affect you. But it affects us. And when it is over, and the troops come
home, and they try to piece together what’s left of them after their
service…where will the detractors be then? Where will the Cindy
Sheehan’s be to comfort and talk to soldiers and help them sort out the
last couple years of their lives, most of which have been spent dodging
death and wading through the deaths of their friends? They will be where
they always are, somewhere far away, where the horrors of the world
can’t touch them. Somewhere where they can complain about things they
will never experience in their lifetime; things that the young men and
women of America have willingly taken upon their shoulders.

We are the hope of the Iraqi people. They want what everyone else wants
in life: safety, security, somewhere to call home. They want a country
that is safe to raise their children in. Not a place where their
children will be abducted, raped, and murdered if they do not comply
with the terrorists demands. They want to live on, rebuild and prosper.
And America has given them the opportunity, but only if we stay true to
the cause, and see it to its end. But the country must unite in this
endeavor…we cannot place the burden on our military alone. We must all
stand up and fight, whether in uniform or not. And supporting us is more
than sticking yellow ribbon stickers on your cars. It’s supporting our
President, our troops and our cause.

Right now, the burden is all on the American soldiers. Right now, hope
rides alone. But it can change, it must change. Because there is only
failure and darkness ahead for us as a country, as a people, if it
doesn’t.
Let’s stop all the political nonsense, let’s stop all the bickering,
let’s stop all the bad news, and let’s stand and fight!

heard.
