The FIGHT for The RIGHT!

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 .

Hills and Malibu . He writes “Ben Stein’s Diary” for every issue of The

**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. **

Michelle Obama has LARGEST NUMBER of STAF of ANY FIRST LADY!

The below quote is from FACKCHECK.ORG regarding an email that was publicized on the Net and in a Chicago newspaper regarding the number of staff people assigned to Michelle Obama being larger than any other First Lady. These numbers do not include Secret Service Protection.

“According to the 2009 White House report to Congress, there are 16 people with a title specifically indicating they work for Michelle Obama’s office. In other words, there are 16 people with “first lady” somewhere in their title, such as Jocelyn Frye, deputy assistant to the president and director of policy and projects for the first lady.

The list reported by Sweet and The Last Crusade, however, includes six other staffers who do not have “first lady” in their title but are a part of the first lady’s office staff, such as Desiree Rogers, special assistant to the president and White House social secretary, and Natalie Bookey, staff assistant.

We contacted Katie McCormick Lelyveld, Michelle Obama’s press secretary, to check the list’s accuracy. Lelyveld told us in an e-mail that the first lady’s current staff size is actually 24, not 22, as the chain e-mail claims. Lelyveld couldn’t provide a list of the staffers at that time.”

The article goes on to say that Hillary Clinton had a staff of 20 (that was in the last year at the White House) Laura Bush had a staff of 16 and at one time it was 18 people.

Therefore, Michelle Obama has .333 times as many permanent staff assigned (does not include Secret Service) than Laura Bush and .25 times as many as Hillary Clinton had. The article goes on to say that the salaries paid to Michelle Obama’s staff of 22 verifible positions was $!.6 Million compared to $1.4 Million for Laura Bush. (remember that Obama has two more staffers not included in the salary figures)

Another quote from FACTCHECK.ORG says:
Dr. Myra Gutin, a professor of communications at Rider University and a first ladies historian, says that the first lady’s role has certainly “grown and evolved” since the 1960s, but generally speaking, the first lady’s “staff numbers about 14-16.” Gutin told us she recalled “some first ladies have had staffs of more than that.”

Based on what FACTCHECK.ORG says, I have to say that First Lady Michelle Obama DOES have more staffers than at least the previous two First Ladies and most likely ALL previous First Ladies!

I close I would like to say that the count of Michelle Obama’s staff people was taken after only SEVEN MONTHS in the White House while the previous two First Ladies had been in the White House for TWO TERMS!

What do we have to look forward to in the coming years in a staff for Michelle Obama?

Will they try to lower unemployment numbers by giving Michelle Obama more staffers?

Was South Carolina a Train Wreck for Hillary??

Train wreck in South Carolina for HillaryMaybe not! What’s the bigger story, Obama winning with 55% of the vote or the Clinton’s losing with 27% of the vote? I think Obama was expected to win BIG although none of the polls I saw had him taking her by more than 20%. A week ago the RCP composite poll only showed a 10.5% difference between the two with Obama on top. This is no doubt another shock for the pollsters and another reason why the voter should not use the polls as a guide.

Regardless of the above, I still believe the BIG story is the Clinton’s losing and here is the reason I think that way and while many are saying this is an omen of doom for the Clinton’s, I am not so sure. Before I go any further with this, I expect you have noted that I have referred to “the Clinton’s” and not Hillary Clinton in the South Carolina section. It is because husband Bill was so heavily involved in the campaign there. I also think the large spread in the votes is due to the black vote. The Clinton’s forced Obama into using the race issue. That made Obama THE black President! Then the Clinton campaign’s use of “dirty politics” galvanized the black vote for Obama and took away the black supporters the Clinton’s did have. Then again, it may have been the Clinton campaign strategy to lose South Carolina and label Obama as THE black candidate and dwell on that in the future primaries in Florida and the 22 taking place on “super Tuesday” hoping for an advantage with the white vote. Bill Clinton was quoted as saying that Jesse Jackson, when he ran in 1984 and again in 1988 won the state of South Carolina meaning that he, as a black candidate, won the black vote but it meant little in the entire picture.

Remember Carolina and Iowa does not necessarily a nominee make. Let’s take a look at all five state races thus far and how they shake out for number of votes per candidate, and what the electoral vote total is after these five contests. Primaries:

  • Clinton received 581,242 votes
  • Obama received 400,211 votes
  • Edwards received 142,394 votes
  • Uncommitted and Dropouts received 288,942 votes

Caucuses:

  • Obama received 9512 votes
  • Clinton received 9510 votes
  • Edwards received 4605 votes
  • Uncommitted and dropouts received 507 votes

Delegates:

  • Obama has 63 delegates
  • Clinton has 48 delegates
  • Edwards has 26 delegates
  • Unallocated has 37 delegates

Obama has only 15 more delegates than Clinton at this juncture and in popular vote he is behind her by 181,240 votes. There are 37 unallocated delegates that could go either way at this point. I do not see this as a losing position for the Clinton’s because there are 57 delegates to be awarded in Florida, 280 in New York, 185 in Illinois and 440 in California. It is “super Tuesday’s outcome that will most likely tell a solid story on WHO the nominee will be.

When the Democratic Convention convenes in The Pepsi Center in Denver on August 25, 2008 the candidate who has a number equal to or greater than 2025 will be the Party’s Presidential candidate. Take a look at this website after the February 5th totals are all in and it will give you and idea of where each candidate stands delegate wise.

Did you forget January 20, 2001? I hope not!

Does the date January 20, 2001 mean anything to you? It should! It is the date the Marc Rich received his pardon from The United States of America.

Does the name Marc Rich mean anything to you? It should! He is the man who was convicted of evading $48 million in taxes owed to the United States of America. In addition he was known to have been actively involved in a trading business with the terrorist rulers of Iran, Libya and Cuba against the express rules of The United States of America. He is an extremely wealthy man who gained his fortune by cheating, lying, stealing and fraud. He was actually on the FBI’s list of most wanted international fugitives. You see when he got in trouble here, he left for Europe and having as much money as he did, had houses all over the world. He lived in Switzerland where he could not be extradited from.How did he convince those in The United States of America to grant the pardon? It was easy, he found a person who was willing to ignore the law, who was not beyond taking money (lots of money in this case) who was known to lie incessantly, at times for no reason at all and whose entire life was almost a fraud.

I imagine that you would like to know who the person was that was ready, oh so willing and able to grant the pardon. It was President William Jefferson Clinton and he did the unspeakable deed just before leaving office.Marc Rich paid for the pardon. He contacted influential people around the world but mainly in Israel and asked for, paid for help to contact Clinton to arrange for the pardon. He saw to it that the Clinton Library received large donation. Through his ex-wife, Denise Rich, he spread even more money around the Clinton’s. Hillary’s campaign for the Senate received a large donation. Denise Rich donated furniture to the Clinton’s new house in New York. Denise Rich was rumored to have had a “special relationship” with  Bill Clinton, one of his  “women”. Those in the know said they had slept together more than once.

In a strange coincidence, the head prosecutor in the U.S. Attorney’s office that got the conviction against Marc Rich was none other than – Rudy Giuliani. He was dumbfounded when he heard about the pardon.

When I realized that the date had completely slipped by without any notice or comment.  I saw nothing at all in the press in the newspapers or on television; I knew I had to remind everyone of this important date in history. The day that March Rich and The Clinton’s screwed the United State of America!

To top off the egregious actions of Bill Clinton and the self-righteous attitude that Marc Rich had after receiving the pardon he bought and paid for (he had the chutzpah to claim HE was wronged and should not have been convicted) the Congress did not even look into the way in which Bill Clinton doled out parson as if he was passing out candy on Halloween.

I hope you will remember January 20, 2001 now and how Marc Ric and The Clinton’s stuck it to America.
