What will we say to our children and our children's children when they ask us, "Why did we sit idly by and allow this cretin to become president and destroy the last hope of freedom in the world?"As this country spirals down into some allusively morphed form of socio-communist-American liberal tyranny, what will you say to the demons as they come to you at night as you lay in bed kicking yourself in the ass for not standing up and fighting?

Dictatorship of the proletariat
--ONLY THE "PROLETARIAT" WON'T BE WORKING! THEY'LL BE SITTING ON THEIR ASSES, COLLECTING "REBATE" CHECKS FROM THE TAXES OF THE SUPER-RICH, CORPORATIONS, SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS, AND WORKERS WHO MAKE MORE THAN $250,000 OR $150,000--DEPENDING WHOM YOU ARE LISTENING TO or at what level the "Chosen One" will set the tax-'em-till-it-hurts divide so that his "Communities" that he "organized" and who were and are his firm "base" can "Share the Wealth" and realize their and his "Dream" as declared in THIS:
ACORN’s ‘Communist Manifesto’
click on the above to read it!
As a public service here is a copy of ACORN’s so-called People’s Platform, via the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine.
As is noted, this version was updated in 1990, which is just two years before Mr. Obama began to work for them via Project Vote and as a trainer for the "power" seminars.
We demand our birthright: the chance to be rich, the right to be free.
Our riches shall be the blooming of our communities, the bounty of a sure livelihood, the beauty of homes for our families with sickness driven from the door, the benefit of our taxes rather than their burden, and the best of our energy, land, and natural resources for all people.
Our freedom is the force of democracy, not the farce of federal fat and personal profit. In our freedom, only the people shall rule. Corporations shall have their role; producing jobs, providing products, paying taxes. No more, no less. They shall obey our wishes, respond to our needs, serve our communities. Our country shall be the citizens’ wealth and our wealth shall build our country.
Government shall have its role: public servant to our good, fast follower to our sure steps. No more, no less. Our government shall shout with the public voice and no longer to a private whisper. In our government, the common concerns shall be the collective cause.
We represent a people’s platform, not a politician’s promise.
We demand the changes outlined in our platform and plan. We will work to win. We will have our birthright. We will live in richness and freedom. We will live in one country as one people.
We are the majority, forged from all minorities. We are the masses of many, not the forces of few. We will continue our fight until the American way is just one way, until we have shared the wealth, until we have won our freedom.
What happens when you heavily tax Corporations and Small Business Owners? They DOWNSIZE--which means less jobs, layoffs, and punishment of the "MIDDLE CLASS" so suposedly beloved by the Marxist/Socialist Obama because they also invest in the stock market which will reflect what is happening to corporations.
The "dictatorship of the proletariat" or workers' state is a term employed by Marxists that refers to what they see as a temporary state between the capitalist society and the classless, stateless and moneyless communist society; during this transition period, "the state can be nothing but the revolutionary dictatorship of the proletariat." The term does not refer to a concentration of power by a dictator, but to a situation where the proletariat (the working class) would hold power and replace the current political, economic and social system controlled by the bourgeoisie (the propertied class). In short, the "dictatorship of the proletariat" would replace the current "dictatorship of the bourgeoisie"; the crucial distinction being that while the bourgeoisie is by definition a minority, the proletariat is, similarly, always the majority . Many Marxists refer to this transitional stage as socialism or "workers' democracy".
The "dictatorship of the proletariat"--when the Society is turned upside down--ends with "the notion of a "dictatorship of the proletariat" to justify what was in effect a dictatorship of a new ruling elite, although of a different nature than the previous ruling elite.
According to the "Maoist Internationalist Movement,"
"What is the dictatorship of the proletariat?"
*See also, "Preparing for the all-round dictatorship of the proletariat: Combating subjectivism in all arenas, from cigarettes & drugs to sectarianism and white chauvinism"
The proletariat is the group of people who are propertyless and thus have "nothing to lose but their chains." The proletariat is the least conservative element of society. The bourgeoisie is the class of people who appropriate the labor of wage workers through their control of the means of production.
Dictatorship is organized force. According to Marxism, all governments are dictatorships. When classes are abolished, it may be possible to have no dictatorships because governments will be abolished and replaced by voluntary cooperation. We communists admit to having dictatorship governments until we achieve our goal of classlessness. It's a matter of accountability.
Dictatorship of the proletariat is the government of socialism. Dictatorship of the bourgeoisie is the government of capitalism.
Concretely and with reference to North Amerikan ideas, dictatorship of the proletariat is government implementation of "survival rights" above "property rights."
The realization that the right to life itself can not be negotiable favors the proletariat. Along with that realization comes the notion that a non-negotiable "right" implies the use of force to protect it from those who profit abusing those so-called rights. The use of force or law backed by force (government) to feed, clothe, shelter and otherwise protect survival rights is dictatorship of the proletariat.
Did those of you who are old enough thrill to these words of President John F. Kennedy: “Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, to assure the survival and the success of liberty.”
Alas, they are unknown or forgotten by Kennedy’s Democratic Party, now headed by Senate majority leader Harry Reid and House majority leader Nancy Pelosi, who, in the midst of our war in Iraq, have vilified America’s commander-in-chief. Does this treacherous attitude trouble Americans?
It troubles the present writer, a former officer in the United States Air Force. I am dismayed by the new and unpatriotic Democratic Party that has arisen in America. I don’t know whether to laugh or cry when America’s new Democrats compare Barack Obama with John F. Kennedy—Obama, so anxious for the United States to turn tail and withdraw American forces from Iraq. This is the same Obama that regards Iran, a nation of 70 million people, as a mere “nuisance.”
(This play-actor does not know that Iran is well-positioned to annex Iraq. He does not know that the combination of Iran’s current production of 4.21 million barrels of oil a day with Iraq’s 6 mullion would enable Iran to out-produce Saudi Arabia. He does not know that a 50 percent cutback of this oil would utterly collapse America’s shaky economy for which his party is primarily responsible. Goodbye Oprah!)
But what most disturbs me is the appalling number of Americans who adore this political Elvis Presley. These Americans are oblivious of their country’s heritage. I have especially in mind the teachings of the American Declaration of Independence, which speaks of man’s unalienable rights to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness, rights derived from the laws of nature and of nature’s God.
The Declaration is a Christian document signed by 56 Christians who said “with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.”
My fellow-Americans: know well what your professors and politicians and judges have never told you, that the American Constitution was designed to implement the universal principles of the Declaration of Independence, Know well that the Constitution concludes with these words: “Done in Convention … in the Year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and eighty-seven.” Know well that America is nothing if it is not a Christian nation. I say this as a Jew who has written books on the Constitution as well as on the Declaration.
Nevertheless, Barack Obama has the audacity to say. “America is no longer a Christian nation.” He writes in The Audacity of Hope, “I will stand with [Arab and Pakistani Americans] should the political winds shift in an ugly direction." What “ugly direction”? There are hundreds of mosques in the United States that preach Jihad and hatred of Americans and Jews. With whom would Obama stand if the American government prosecuted Arabs or Muslims charged with incitement or hate crimes?
Obama’s father was a Muslim, and under Islamic law a person’s faith is patrilineal. Would Obama stand on the side of America of which he claims to be a citizen? Did he not refrain from placing his hand on his heart during a public recital of the American Pledge of Allegiance? For twenty years he attended a church whose pastor preached “God damn America,” the same pastor who embraced the Black Muslim Louis Farrakhan, Supreme Minister of the Nation of Islam and a pronounced anti-Semite and anti-American.
How can this subversive state of affairs happen in America, the country in which I was born and where I so often proudly said: "I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands: one Nation under God, indivisible, With Liberty and Justice for all." This is the teaching underlying the American Constitution.
How is it, then, that Obama, a candidate for president of the United States, can openly scorn this Constitution to the extent of calling it a barrier to justice? Like others of his ilk, he reduces justice to equality, by which he means not equality of opportunity—not the elevating equality of the Declaration—but the leveling equality of results—an equality demanded by the Marxist redistribution of wealth preached by his mentors.
How is it that this stage player is not be rejected by an overwhelming majority of the American people? Has America gone mad?

More Muslim demopathy! He’s a Nazi. His roll call of advisors, with the exception of Albright (who is no friend to the Jewish community but not a rabid neo-Nazi), have literally dedicated their lives to Nazism. He has used police-state tactics in Illinois and Minnesota. And then there are all of his attempts to 3rd-world-ize the electoral process through massive voter fraud which cost Hillary the primary. And the socialism he preaches, plus his community organizer work, his Alinsky connection, his Frank Marshall Davis connection, etc., etc. Whatever Muslims are guilty of they will always project it onto someone else, usually Israel or America. Ugh!

THUS BLEATED THE GOLDEN CALF:
from "LEAVING NORMAL"
Better late than never...The interviews given by demagogue Obama in 2001 finally sees the light of day, broadcast by a few in the media, that have not become Stepford Followers of LORD OBAMA, THE MAGNIFICENT MESSIAH.
THUS BLEATED OBAMA:
"The Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth and sort of basic issues of political and economic justice in this society, and to that extent as radical as people try to characterize the Warren Court, it wasn't that radical," Obama said in the interview, a recording of which surfaced on the Internet over the weekend."It didn't break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the founding fathers in the Constitution, at least as it has been interpreted."And the Warren court interpreted it generally in the same way -- that the Constitution is a document of negative liberties, says what the states can't do to you, says what the federal government can't do to you, but it doesn't say what the federal government or state government must do on your behalf, and that hasn't shifted."And I think one of the tragedies of the civil rights movement was that the civil rights movement became so court-focused, I think there was a tendency to lose track of the political and organizing activities on the ground that are able to bring about the coalitions of power through which you bring about redistributive change, and in some ways we still suffer from that," Obama said.

Obama promised to be the post-racial candidate who would bring us together. But when asked in March 2004 whether he attended regularly the Rev. Jeremiah Wright's Trinity United Church of Christ, Obama boasted: "Yep. Every week. Eleven o'clock service."
The healer Obama further characterized the racist Wright as "certainly someone who I have an enormous amount of respect for." And Obama described the even more venomous Father Michael Pfleger as "a dear friend, and somebody I interact with closely."
Obama can dismiss his past associations with Bill Ayers as perfunctory and now irrelevant. But why then did an Obama campaign spokesman say Obama hadn't e-mailed with or spoken by phone to Ayers since January 2005, suggesting more than three years of communications — in a post-9/11 climate — after Ayers said publicly that he had not done enough bombing?
From ACORN To . . .
Obama's campaign shrugged when legal doubts were raised about the sloppy voter registration practices of ACORN — an organization that Obama himself has both helped and praised.
Yet Obama was once a stickler for proper voter documents. In 1996, he had all of his Democratic rivals removed from the ballot in an Illinois state primary election on the basis of sloppy voter petitions.
Many of Obama's surrogates, from congressional leaders like Rep. John Lewis to his running mate, Joe Biden, have suggested that the McCain and Palin candidacies have heightened racial tensions. Do such pre-emptory warnings mean that one cannot worry about Obama's 20-year relationship with Rev. Wright or long association with Father Pfleger?

Effigy of Sarah Palin hanging by a noose creates uproar in West Hollywood
Los Angeles sheriff's officials say the Halloween display isn't a hate crime.
Authorities are keeping an eye on the house to make sure the situation doesn't get out of hand.
By Victoria Kim October 28, 2008
A West Hollywood Halloween display showing a likeness of Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin hanging by a noose has caused a furor among some residents who reported it as a hate crime, authorities said Monday.
But Los Angeles County sheriff's officials said the mannequin sporting a beehive hairdo, glasses and a red coat does not rise to the level of a hate crime because it was part of a Halloween display.
I'm not defending this; I'm not criticizing it. It doesn't rise to the level of hate crime," said Steve Whitmore, spokesman for the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, who said he went out to the house himself to look at the display this morning."
Now, if there was a crime against bad taste . . . "Sgt. Kristin Aloma of the Sheriff's Department's West Hollywood station said that since Sunday she had received five to 10 calls from residents offended by the display. Officials are monitoring the house to make sure the situation doesn't get out of hand, she said.
West Hollywood Mayor Jeffrey Prang said although he recognizes residents' right to free speech, he found the display problematic and felt it should be removed.
"While these residents have the legal right to display Senator John McCain and Governor Sarah Palin in effigy, I strongly oppose political speech that references violence -- real or perceived," Prang said in a statement. "I urge these residents to take down their display and find more constructive ways to express their opinion."
Whitmore said that potential hate crimes are evaluated on a case-by-case basis. If the same display had been made of a Barack Obama-like doll, for example, authorities would have to evaluate it independently, Whitmore said.
"That adds a whole other social, historical hate aspect to the display, and that is embedded in the consciousness of the country," he said, adding he's not sure whether it would be a hate crime. "It would be ill-advised of anybody to speculate on that."
ChadMichael Morrisette, who lives in the house, told a local TV news crew that cars and buses have been stopping near his home and that people have been snapping photos of the Halloween display.The home's decorations also feature a doll of John McCain surrounded by decorative flames in the chimney, and other more typical Halloween items, such as skeletons and spider webs.Kim is a Times staff writer.
But what if it were an effigy of the Golden Calf hanging there from the gables of the house? Would that be considered a hate crime?

Obama Campaign Cuts Off Interviews With Florida TV Station
Biden gets asked tough questions by Orlando reporter
[Portent of things to come: If a TV station or a communications network dares question the Obama administration unfavorably, that station, network, communication medium will no longer have access to the administration]
Obama Campaign to WFTV Televison station Orlando, Florida:
"This cancellation is non-negotiable, and further opportunities for your station to interview with this campaign are unlikely . . . " wrote Laura K. McGinnis, Central Florida communications director for the Obama campaign . . . .
Click here to read more on this story from the Orlando Sentinel.
Barack Obama's campaign killed all interviews with a Florida TV station after Sen. Joe Biden, the Democratic vice presidential nominee, faced tough and critical questions from a reporter at the Orlando station, the Orlando Sentinel reported .
During a satellite video Thursday, WFTV's Barbara West quoted Karl Marx and asked Biden how Obama's comment to "Joe the Plumber," about spreading the wealth wasn't being Marxist.
"Are you joking?," Biden asked.
West replied, "No."
Click here to watch the interview.
Later in the interview West questioned Biden about his comments that if Obama wins the election next month, he would be tested early on as president and wanted to know if Biden was implying America was no longer the world's leading power.
"I don't know who's writing your questions," Biden asked her.
The Obama camp then killed a WFTV interview with Biden's wife Jill, according to an Orlando Sentinel blog.
WHAT IS MARXISM?
Theoretically, Marxism is a distribution of wealth "from each according to their ability, to each according to their need."
German economist & Communist political philosopher (1818 - 1883)
BUT Obama would change that to "to each according to their needs, from each according to their abilities"
which means that the needs of his "constituency" (his beloved "communities") would come first. What these "communities" would have to contribute, their "abilities," is left in limbo.
and, if you think that Obama Socialism/Marxism is not the same old Communism that was tried and failed in Russia, then take a look at this:
Behold ACORN’s ‘Communist Manifesto’
As a public service here is a copy of ACORN’s so-called People’s Platform, via the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine.
As is noted, this version was updated in 1990, which is just two before Mr. Obama began to work for them via Project Vote and as a trainer for the "power" seminars.
ACORN People’s Platform
The People’s Platform was conceived at ACORN’s 1978 Memphis Convention and ratified at the 1979 St. Louis Convention. In 1990, in celebration of ACORN’s twentieth anniversary, ACORN members around the country met in order to revise and update the platform. The resulting document was approved by the Executive Committee of the Association board and ratified by acclamation at the 1990 Chicago Convention.
and here again pops up WHO but the nimble-tongued, fast-soft-shoe-dancing Barack Obama, he who "never had anything to do with ACORN" according to himself:
Is the Race Over? by Jennifer Rubin
"Don't write off the underdog just yet," Jennifer Rubin maintains.
But she goes on to say, " the notion that the race is “over” is an artificial construct, of course, by the MSM."
"It does become a self-fulfilling prophecy to the extent Republicans despair and fail to turn out. But, by the same token, the Democrats’ victory depends in large part on turning out irregular voters such as college students.
"So both sides must reiterate a truism: the race is decided by those who show up to vote."

Is the Race Over?
by Jennifer Rubin
Don't write off the underdog just yet.
October 25, 2008 - by Jennifer Rubin
a Comment from the foregoing article:
I wake up on some mornings, not feeling as if I am in the middle of an election year, but rather, in the middle of a Nelson DeMille novel.
Ok, so let me get this straight. On the one side, we have a man who served the country almost his entire adult life. Was taken as a prisoner of war and served for over two decades as a senator. His record as a senator shows a willingness to not only legislate in a bi-partisan manner, but to put country and honor and principles over party loyalty. We can look at virtually the entirety of his life and his record as a legislator and come away with a pretty clear picture of what we are getting. He is NOT a clone of the current President, far from it. That is a dime store sound bite. He is a centrist leaning thinker and a staunch and unwavering supporter of Israel. He is the center right mirror image of Joe Lieberman’s center left politics. Their brotherly handshake crosses the very midpoint of American politics. Neither is a fringe candidate.
On the other hand, we have a man whose history is lost in the mist. He has had a penchant for cleaving to some of America’s most virulent voices of hatred and …to be kind…revolution…if not outright treason. His “spiritual advisor”, his “guiding light”, has asked God to damn America…not defend it.
He has an association with not just one, but several fringe agents of radical extremism who actively seek the overthrow of our government and undermine our allies…while lionizing our enemies…and have met with those enemies of state in furtherance of that agenda. Michael Klonsky is not William Ayers, but they are kindred spirits in seeking revolution. Ayers has announced himself an anarchist and a small “c” communist. Posters of Che Guevara are proudly hung, but our own flag is “the wrong kind” of patriotism. Farrakhan and Wright meet with Libyan dictators, Ayers with Chavez, Klonsky with Maoists and Malley with Hamas.
Rashid Khalidi, is a dinner companion. The late Edward Said was one as well.
And the ONLY person digging into the history of this candidate…is a very um…unique…character who has filed a lawsuit that alleges, inter alia…that the candidate was born in Kenya, that he applied for college grants or aid as a foreigner and not as a US citizen, that he never held a US citizenship…but rather a dual one from Kenya and, of course…from Jakarta where he went to school as a boy.
This, of course could be cleared up in a matter of moments with his college records and applications, cooperation with the Kenyan government, …and it would put an end to the rather ridiculous lawsuit, by this …um…unique…litigant.
Except…the Kenyan government detained someone who went there in peace to uncover whatever facts could be dug up. It appears that someone named Odinga has a blood relationship to the candidate…and some influence in Kenya. What does this Odinga person stand for, in terms of political beliefs? And why hide documents that would clear up the situation?
Well…no matter. It is simply a matter of having the colleges and universities and public records holders turn over a couple of papers and the bizarre matter is cleared for good. Except, our universities and colleges and public libraries all of a sudden begin blocking inquiry into what otherwise would seem to be a rather mundane set of documents.
Either he did or he did not apply for grants and aid and acceptance as a foreign student or he did not. Either he attended meetings and conducted business with certain individuals or he did not. A silly, ludicrous, inane accusation by a rather …um…unique…litigant…should gain no traction and we should go on with more serious issues. But…there is no hospital record of birth in the US.
The college records are locked and sealed. The Kenyan government refuses to cooperate and detains the only person who sought to dig for the answer.
So…maybe the guys who are doing the digging are a little…um…unique…but all of a sudden I’m not so sure who is crazy and who is sane any longer. I am normally pretty level-headed and I am fighting off this paranoia with every fiber of my being. There is a normal, rational, sane explanation…for what has gone on unexplained for too long here.
But since our very incurious media seems more intent on pursuing their foot fetish on Sarah Palin and whether she is wearing pumps today or espadrilles…I’m not sure where to find the confirmation that truth isn’t stranger than fiction in this election.
I have three areas of inquiry that I think are fair and reasonable:
1)Frank Marshall Davis, William Ayers, Michael Klonsky, Alice Palmer, Danny Davis, the New Party, the DSA, have all espoused radical extremist views regarding our government, ways to undermine it, and to overthrow or replace it with some brand of leftist ideology. Are we entitled to know the truthful depth and breadth of your associations with these individuals and groups and what…PRECISELY…is that relationship over the years. How PRECISELY do you view that ideology, where PRECISELY do you differ and where PRECISELY do you concur?
2)Your foreign policy team is made up largely of people who hold very similar views on Israel, which, to date has been complete inapposite to the American people. Brzezinski, Malley, Kurtzer, Lugar, Jones, Power, Rice, Lake, Bonior…along with Zinni, Baker, Buchanan…make up a unit of thought that is in line with the Walt and Mearsheimer reasoning. This portends a sudden and abrupt shift in our relationship with Israel and the Palestinians. What, PRECISELY …do you find persuasive in their line of thinking and what PRECISELY do you disagree with? You have had social dinner evenings, at a minimum, with Rashid Khalidi, someone who supports suicide bombers and has been a radical extremist in his speeches against Israel. What PRECISELY is your view on Khalidi and the late Edward Said?
3)This matter of this bizarre lawsuit can be cleared up in a matter of moments. What could possibly be in your college records that is not a source of pride to you? Your grades? Who cares…the classes you took, completely beside the point. What in the world would be in there that would motivate you to deny access to them?
But they could disprove that you applied for grants, aid or acceptance as a foreign citizen as alleged in that bizarre request for admissions. And why would you issue a “call to action” against Stanley Kurtz on Milt Rosenberg’s show? He is respectful and diligent…even if he disagrees with your position or digs for documents regarding your associations with the people and institutions in paragraph 1 above. Asking universities and libraries to lock down evidence is not the “change” and “new type of leadership” that any of us want. Don’t you want people to get to know you, since you are rather new to the scene?
If this is a “distraction” from “real” issues…isn’t it best to open it up, get it over with and proceed on with those other issues? By blocking, stalling, hindering and shouting down those inquiries…it only prolongs the unanswered questions…and it leaves them lingering in the air.
Words are not evidence. Speeches are not evidence. I have tended to believe that some of these fantastical allegations could not possibly be true. That they were the products of fertile imaginations and tortured logic. But the fact that they remain unanswered and combined with the detention in Kenya, the shout down of Kurtz, the lockdown of the public records, the calls to action, the threat of “fairness doctrines”, the conspiracy of silence of the entrenched (and ever more apparently “controlled” media)…stinks of a coverup to be quite frank.
Private presidential seals? Overblown portraits hung on buildings? Paramilitary chants and exercises?

Obama-Care is Bad for Your Health
Here's a little "fun fact," when Barack Obama talks about how his health plan, is designed to give coverage to 47 Million uninsured Americans, he is including the 12 Million illegal immigrants in his estimates. More than 25% of the uninsured are in the United States illegally.
As the saying goes, "put that in your pipe and smoke it." On second hand you better not smoke anything, because even if you don't get sick from smoking or from the increased tax burden from supporting twelve million people who have entered the United States illegally, you may get sick from the lack of coverage you will get. Because Obama-care will add such a large quantity of people to the health care system, doctors will have to choose who gets what care. So your family member who needs that treatment might have to forgo a lifesaving procedure because it was given to someone who broke the law to come here.
But there's much more about Obama-Care that's bad for your health:

Barney Frank, head of the House Financial Services Committee, . . . said . . . : "I believe later on, there should be tax increases. . . there are a lot of very rich people out there whom we can tax at a point down the road and recover some of this money."
And all this in the middle of what looks like a deep recession. This is a big reason why stock markets in the U.S. and abroad have plunged in recent weeks. As Obama climbs in the polls, investors have awakened to a stark fiscal reality.
This should worry all Americans. A 2005 study found 57 million U.S. households — 60% of the total — owned stocks, bonds or mutual funds. Average people don't realize they'll take a direct hit.
Higher taxes lower returns on capital. This means everything — wages, stock prices, real estate — will have to decline further as Obama's tax hikes take hold. That means fewer jobs.
This reverses what has always been America's recipe for success: an economy built on low taxes, few regulations, free trade and, in general, letting markets decide winners and losers.

Read his post "Democracy or Republic . . . "
from Michelle Malkin: Barack the Silencer - Obama's Gangland Assault on Free Speech
Welcome to the future: the politics of Hope and Change enforced by the missionaries of Search and Destroy.
Where are all the free speech absolutists when you need them? Over the past month, left-wing partisans and Democratic lawyers have waged a brass-knuckled intimidation campaign against GOP donors, TV and radio stations, and even an investigative journalist because they have all dared to question the radical cult of Barack Obama. A chill wind blows, but where the valiant protectors of political dissent are, nobody knows.
On August 11, I called the American Civil Liberties Union national headquarters in New York for comment about the Chicago gangland tactics of one of these groups -- a nonprofit called "Accountable America" that is spearheaded by a former operative of the Obama-endorsing MoveOn outfit.
"Accountable America" is trolling campaign finance databases and targeting conservative donors with "warning" letters in a thuggish attempt to depress Republican fundraising. (You'll be interested to know that the official registered agent of Accountable America is Laurence Gold, a high-powered attorney for the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO) who has testified before the Senate complaining about the use of campaign finance laws to stifle the speech of union workers -- a pet cause of the ACLU.)
The ACLU press office failed to respond to my initial call. On August 13, I followed up through e-mail:
"I called on Monday requesting a statement from the ACLU about Accountable America's intimidation campaign against GOP donors. What is the ACLU's position with regard to such efforts? Waiting for your statement..."
ACLU press officer Pamela Bradshaw e-mailed back:
"Michelle, My apologies that I cannot be of more assistance, but we don't have anyone available. Thanks, Pam."
My reply: "Pam -- Does this mean you don't have anyone available today, this week, or for the foreseeable future?"
On August 20, after a week of silence, I forwarded the message again to the ACLU press office. No response.
So, I won't bother asking the ACLU's opinion of the latest wave of speech-squelching moves by the Obama campaign:
On Monday, Obama demanded that the Justice Department stop TV stations from airing a documented, accurate independent ad spotlighting Obama's longtime working relationship with unrepentant Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers. Obama summoned his followers to bombard stations, many of them owned by conservative-leaning Sinclair Communications, with 93,000 e-mails to squelch the commercial.
On Tuesday, the Obama campaign sent another letter to the Justice Department demanding investigation and prosecution of American Issues Project, the group that produced the Ayers ad, as well as Dallas billionaire Harold Simmons, who funded it.
And on Wednesday, Obama exhorted his followers to sabotage the WGN radio show of veteran Chicago host and University of Chicago Professor Milt Rosenberg. Why? Because he invited National Review writer Stanley Kurtz to discuss his investigative findings about Obama's ties to Ayers and the underwhelming results of their collaboration on a left-wing educational project sponsored by the Chicago Annenberg Challenge. The "Obama Action Wire" supplied Rosenberg's call-in line and talking points like this:
"Tell WGN that by providing Kurtz with airtime, they are legitimizing baseless attacks from a smear-merchant and lowering the standards of political discourse. ... It is absolutely unacceptable that WGN would give a slimy character assassin like Kurtz time for his divisive, destructive ranting on our public airwaves."
Behind the glowing, peaceful facade lies Barack "The Silencer" Obama and his silent enablers on the left. While mainstream journalists schmoozed with liberal celebrities in Denver, practiced yoga with left-wing bloggers and received massages at the Google convention tent near touchy-feely Barackopolis, Team Obama was on an ugly, aggressive warpath sanctioned by Mr. Civility. While compassionate Obama prepared to stand before thousands of worshipers at Invesco Field, purporting to give voice to the voiceless, his Chicago-schooled campaign machine was working overtime to muzzle conservative critics. "We want it to stop," ordered one pro-Obama caller to WGN.

Check how Hugo Chavez silenced all opposition, first by shutting down its TV station:
CARACAS, Venezuela (CNN) -- Venezuela's most-watched television station -- and outlet for the political opposition -- went off the air after the government refused to renew its broadcast license.
Radio Caracas Television (RCTV), which has been broadcasting for 53 years, was replaced by a state-run station -- TVes -- on Monday. The new station's logo began running immediately after RCTV went off the air.
Leading up to the deadline, police on Sunday used water cannons and what appeared to be tear gas to break up thousands of demonstrators protesting the government's decision to close the country's most-watched television station.
The protest began in front of National Telecommunications Commission

Obama's 'dirty little secret the media won't talk about' - his radical plan to give illegal aliens Social Security benefits and Medicaid, full healthcare coverage.
By Obama's own count there are 12 million illegal aliens in the U.S. and he wants them all getting government benefits.
Obama has stated he also wants to give each and everyone of them amnesty and citizenship.
As for them learning English, he has stated he thinks American kids, your kids, should learn Spanish.
There is no doubt this man is the most radical leftist ever nominated by the Democratic party.
We have already exposed Obama's shocking plan to give illegals driver's licenses - even though everyone knows the 9/11 plot began with 13 of the 19 terrorists getting driver's licenses.
As the American people find out about Obama and his plans, they will turn on him.
McCain can still win this.

McCain's Problem - You Can Help
McCain has a big problem. If he attacks Obama, the media portrays him as mean-spirited.
But, as an independent PAC, the National Republican Trust can tell the American people the absolute truth about Obama's radical record and plans.
That's one reason why Dick Morris, the famous political strategist and Fox News guru says, "The National Republican Trust is a very effective organization that can make a huge difference on election day."
We hope you agree with that view.
Dick says McCain can definitely win. That's why we have launched our air war on Obama, bypassing the major media and going directly to the American people.

Obama's Indonesian school registration listing him as Muslim.
With Colin Powell now repeating the lie that Barack Obama has "always been a Christian," despite new information further confirming Obama's Muslim childhood (such as the Indonesian school registration listing him as Muslim), one watches with dismay as the Democratic candidate manages to hide the truth on this issue.
Instead, then, let us review a related subject – Obama's connections and even indebtedness, throughout his career, to extremist Islam. Specifically, he has longstanding, if indirect ties to two institutions, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), listed by the U.S. government in 2007 as an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas-funding trial; and the Nation of Islam (NoI), condemned by the Anti-Defamation League for its "consistent record of racism and anti-Semitism."
First, Obama's ties to Islamists:
The Khalid al-Mansour connection: According to former Manhattan Borough president Percy Sutton, Al-Mansour "was raising money for" Obama's expenses at Harvard Law School. Al-Mansour, a black American (né Don Warden), became advisor to Saudi prince Al-Walid bin Talal, CAIR's largest individual donor. Al-Mansour holds standard Islamist views: he absolves the Islamist government in Sudan of sponsoring slavery, he denies a Jewish tie to Jerusalem, and he wrote a booklet titled "Americans Beware! The Zionist Plot Against S. Arabia." (Both Obama and al-Mansour deny Sutton's account.)
Kenny Gamble, or Luqman Abdul-Haqq, "amir" of the United Muslim Movement.
The Kenny Gamble (also known as Luqman Abdul-Haqq) connection: Gamble, a once-prominent pop music producer, cut the ribbon to the Obama campaign headquarters housed in a south Philadelphia building he owns. Gamble is an Islamist who buys large swaths of real estate in Philadelphia to create a Muslim-only residential area. Also, as the self-styled "amir" of the United Muslim Movement, he has many links to Islamist organizations, including CAIR and the Muslim Alliance in North America. (MANA's "amir" is Siraj Wahhaj, an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.)
The Mazen Asbahi connection: The Obama campaign's first Muslim outreach coordinator resigned after it came to light that he had served on the board of a subsidiary of the Saudi-sponsored North American Islamic Trust, with Jamal Said, another unindicted co-conspirator in the 2007 Hamas funding trial. Asbahi has ties to CAIR's Chicago and Detroit offices, to the Islamic Society of North America, yet another unindicted co-conspirator in the Hamas funding trial, and to other Islamist organizations.
The Minha Husaini connection: The campaign's second Muslim outreach coordinator has an Islamist background, having served as an intern in the Muslim Public Service Network. Immediately upon her appointment by Obama, she met with a group of about thirty Muslims including such notorious figures as CAIR's Nihad Awad; the Muslim American Society's Mahdi Bray, who has publicly supported the Hamas and Hezbollah terrorist groups; and Johari Abdul Malik of the Dar Al-Hijrah Mosque in Falls Church, Va., who has advised American Muslims: "You can blow up bridges, but you cannot kill people who are innocent on their way to work."
Second, Obama's ties to the Nation of Islam:
Louis Farrakhan, who calls Obama "the Messiah."
Obama's long-time donor and ally Antoin "Tony" Rezko partnered for nearly three decades with Jabir Herbert Muhammad, a son of NoI leader Elijah Muhammad, and says he gave Jabir and his family "millions of dollars over the years." Rezko also served as executive director of the Muhammad Ali Foundation, a rogue organization that, without Ali's permission, exploited the name of this CAIR awardee.
Jeremiah Wright, Obama's esteemed pastor for twenty years, came out of a Nation background, recently he accepted protection from an NoI security detail, and has praised Louis Farrakhan, the NoI's leader, as one of the "giants of the African American religious experience." Wright's church celebrated Farrakhan for his having "truly epitomized greatness."
Farrakhan himself endorsed Obama, calling him "the hope of the entire world," "one who can lift America from her fall," and even "the Messiah."
That Obama's biography touches so frequently on such unsavory organizations as CAIR and the Nation of Islam should give pause. How many of politicians have a single tie to either group, much less seven of them? John McCain charitably calls Obama "a person you do not have to be scared [of] as president of the United States," but Obama's multiple links to anti-Americans and subversives mean he would fail the standard security clearance process for Federal employees.
Islamic aggression represents America's strategic enemy; Obama's many insalubrious connections raise grave doubts about his fitness to serve as America's commander-in-chief.

National anthem scrapped at NH event to make room for a more important speaker.
Plan to see more of the scrapping of all things "American" as Obama - Dear Leader of the World - continues in taking over the world. I suppose the Islamists are on board with this and Jesus has no objection so, "Hail to the Leader! Hail to Obama the Dear Leader of the "new world order."

Obama vs America's "Joe the Plumber"
(click on the above!)
Obama, Karl Marx, and Joe the Plumber
Thank God for Joe the Plumber and Faultline, USA. Here is a must-read post with video too: Shush! Don't spread that phrase around. Obama tells Joe the Plumber, more taxes on you are good to spread the wealth around, here.
That phrase is "redistribution" of wealth or income or both. Yep, that's what Obama wants to do. Steal money from your pocket 'cause you are making too much at $42,000.00 a year and GIVE some of your money to folks who are too good to "work", to pay taxes, and to share their non-income.
Yep, Obama is Karl Marx in aces, the red and black ones together. Obama is so out of touch with Americans of all kinds, shapes, ethnicities, and religions to be running for office over a nation he knows nothing about. He talks as though we are a nation in poverty - how many TVs do you have, how many cars, how many cell phones, how many iPods? And I'm talking if you are on welfare and/or foodstamps?

Don't miss reading about the civil strife that will tear us apart--with the Islamics standing by, ever ready to strike the final blow that will make us theirs.
"An Obama win, or defeat, only predicates the unbelievable violence that this nation will suffer . . . "
from American Sentinel:
William Ayers was - by any meaningful definition of the term - a terrorist. He bombed public buildings, such as the Pentagon, the Capital, and New York City Police Headquarters. Although his case was thrown out due to government misconduct, the evidence is clear that William Ayers - by his own admission - was a terrorist who said, “Kill all the rich people. Break up their cars and apartments. Bring the revolution home, kill your parents - that’s where it’s really at.” This is a man who said - on a day of national grief following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 - “I don’t regret setting bombs. I feel we didn’t do enough.”
William Ayers didn’t make that horrible statement when Barack Obama was 8 years old (FYI, Ayers’ last self-acknowledged and most well-known bombings occurred in 1972, when Barack Obama was eleven years old). Ayers said that when Barack Obama was 40 years old. Nor did Obama work in direct partnership with William Ayers when he was 8 years old; he did so beginning when he was 32 years old. In other words, he was old enough to be held responsible for his relationships and alliances.

Barack Obama reviewed William Ayers book, but maintains that Ayers is just a guy who happens to live in the neighborhood. Obama is a liar and uses deceit to hide his unsavory connections. He exhibits two characteristics common to Moslems and Communists.
William Ayers said:
"Our neighbors include Muhammad Ali, former mayor Eugene Sawyer, poets Gwendolyn Brooks and Elizabeth Alexander, and writer Barack Obama. Minister Louis Farrakhan lives a block from our home and adds, we think, a unique dimension to the idea of 'safe neighborhood watch': the Fruit of Islam, his security force, has an eye on things twenty-four-hours a day."

Obama’s Account of New York Years Often Differs From What Others Say and observes that Obama “barely mentions Columbia” in his memoir. . . .
[H]e declined repeated requests to talk about his New York years, release his Columbia transcript or identify even a single fellow student, co-worker, roommate or friend from those years.
Odd. Andrew McCarthy finds it more than odd — he finds it suspicious.

'Iraqi War: Part Deux'
What the liberal whiners say:
'Well, we're coming to the end of Bush's illegal war for oil. It won't be long now before we can bring our troops home, once and for all.'
'I doubt they'd even understand it...Bush has loaded down our military with a bunch of high school dropouts!'
'Oh, OK...it's just the MINORITIES then. Bush sends all the Blacks and Hispanics to Iraq so his own whitey daughters won't have to go!'
'Don't dodge the issue! You know what I mean. Minorities have NO OPPORTUNITIES in this country, so they have to join the military.'
'Right, they're just the ones doing all the DYING in Iraq!'
Your winning, logical, reasoned arguments
1. If you're insinuating that Barack Obama is going to be elected and then bring the troops home immediately, maybe it would interest you to know that Obama secretly tried to negotiate with Iraqi leader Al Malicki to WAIT until after the election to decide on any U.S. troop draw-down, apparently so that he could get credit for it. That seems like someone playing politics with our troops to me. I wonder how they'd feel about that?
2. Our troops are our best and brightest. Just over 1% of our troops lack a high school degree. In the general population with 18-24 year olds, it's 21%! Our militray is much better educated than their peers.
3. First of all, do you realize that our military is VOLUNTEER? Bush doesn't force ANYONE to join the military...thus, the word "volunteer" appears before our military.
4. Wrong again. The facts simply do not support the belief that many American soldiers volunteer because society offers them few opportunities. The average enlisted person or officer could have had lucrative career opportunities in the private sector. Also minorities are actually underrepresented in the military.
5. You're still batting ZERO. White troops have accounted for almost 70% of the deaths in Iraq. That exceeds their "active duty" percentage.
