In a few weeks the historic 2008 Democratic Party Presidential Primary between an Africazn American Man and a White Woman will end. The two candidates competed in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, the US Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico and Guam. At the end of these contests, neither candidate had earned enough pledged delegates to garner the necessary 2118 needed to win the Democratic nomination for President of the United States. Hillary Clinton earned 1640 pledged delegates while Barack Obama earned 1763 pledged delegates. A paltry 123 pledged separated the two candidates at the end of the primary season. Since there was no clear winner, the superdelegates would determine the Democratic nominee.
Approximately 800 superdelegates will make up around 20% of the 4000 delegates at the convention. These superdelegates are Democratic Party leaders, Democratic governors, and Democratic members of congress. They have the right to endorse either candidate without reason and can change their endorsement from one candidate to another at any time. The superdelegates are very powerful and highly sought after by candidates. One superdelegate is equal to one pledged delegate or 11,361 voters in California or 7,220 voters in New York. Many factors influence which candidate a superdelegate endorses but they usually vote the way their constituents vote. Some superdelegates have intense personal relationships with particular candidates that may influence their endorsement. Members of congress may also be influenced by money given or promised by party leaders, the DNC or the candidates themselves.
Politicians collect money for their campaigns but most American’s don’t realize that politicians collect a separate a pot of money called a Leadership Political Action Committee or PAC. These PACs are used to hire additional staff and pay for additional perks such as limos and first class flights. But one of the major reasons for these PAC’s is to donate to the campaigns of other candidates. Nancy Pelosi’s PAC is called PAC to the Future, Barack Obama’s PAC is called Hope Fund, and Hillary Clinton’s PAC is called Hillpac. Money was distributed by these PAC’s to the superdelegates to influence their voting. The Federal Elections Commission requires scrupulous reporting of how PAC money is obtained and how it is spent. This data can be retrieved at www.opensecrets.org.
In 2007, Obama distributed 299,000 from his PAC to superdelegates. He especially targeted the states of Iowa and New Hampshire. On July 25, 2007, the Hope Fund made $1000 donations to each of the following groups: Hillsborough County Democrats, Hudson, NH; Martha Fuller Clark for State Senate, Portsmouth, NH; Merrimack County Democrats, Chichester, NH; New Hampshire for John Lynch, Manchester, NH; Sgambati 4 NH Senate, Tilton, NH; Stafford County Democratic Committee, Durham, NH and Sullivan County Democrats, Claremont, NH. Obama also gave $5000 contributions to New Hampshire Democratic Party, Concord, New Hampshire, on July 26,2007; New Hampshire for John Lynch on July 25, 2007, and New Hampshire Democratic State Committee, Concord, New Hampshire on November 3, 2006. Obama did not announce his candidacy until May 2, 2007.
Obama also gave New Hampshire Democratic State Senator Jacalyn Cilley $1000 on July 25, 2007. She endorsed Obama on July 31, 2007, just six days after his contribution to her campaign. On July 26, 2007, first term New Hampshire Congressman Paul Hodes of New Hampshire endorsed Obama. The New Hampshire Primary was not until January 8, 2008 and Hillary won New Hampshire.
By March 28, 2008, Hope Fund donated $710,900 to superdelegates, more than three times as much as Hillpac. ($236,100). A study by the Center for Responsive Politics showed that presidential candidates who gave more money to a superdelegate received their endorsement 82% of the time. This is especially disturbing when the superdelegates endorse a candidate that is decidedly contrary to the will of the voters in their state and their districts.
After reviewing state and congressional voting records as well as PAC donations, members of congress were identified that fulfilled the following four criteria: 1. These members endorsed Barack Obama. 2. The constituents of their state preferred Hillary Clinton. 3. The constituents of their district preferred Hillary Clinton. 4. They got more PAC money from Hope Fund than from HillPac. These senators are Jeff Bingaman, Frank Lautenberg, and Jay Rockefeller. The members of the house are Jason Altmire, Dennis Cardoza, Jim Costa, Joe Donelly, Gabrielle Giffords, Baron Hill, Ron Klein, Patrick Murphy, Gerald Mc Nerney, Carol She-Porter, Zack Space, Niki Tsongas, and Charlie Wilson.
Charlie Wilson is the perfect example. He ran in Ohio’s District 6 in 2006. His seat was the seat of the former governor and is located in Southern Ohio. Wilson was a last minute candidate for his seat and because of this was a write-in candidate. The governor and the party worked hard to get Wilson elected. President Clinton made an audio recording endorsing Wilson that went out to 50,000 homes. The governor of Ohio is a big Clinton supporter, the voters of Ohio voted 54-44% percent in favor of Clinton, and District 6, Wilson’s District, voted for Clinton 70% - 27%. Yet Wilson endorsed Obama. It looks like there is no loyalty in politics to either your constituents or your friends. Wilson got $7,000 of PAC money from Barack Obama, but no money from Hillary Clinton. Was this a factor in his choice?
The following chart [here] summarizes the data culled from a variety of sources. The data raises obvious questions about the inherent power of superdelegates and their vulnerability to financial contributions. Contributions from other Pacs such as Pac to the Future need to be reviewed.

by David Cohen, Evening Standard
It is an extraordinary sight to walk into a basic two-room house under a mango tree in rural east Africa and discover what is essentially a shrine to Barack Obama.
The small brick house with no running water, a tin roof and roving chickens, goats and cows is owned by Sarah Obama,Barack's 86-year-old step-grandmother. Inside, the walls are decorated with a 2008 Obama election sticker, an old "Barack Obama for Senate" poster on which he has written "Mama Sarah Habai [how are you?]", a 2005 calendar that says "The Kenyan Wonder Boy in the US", and more than a dozen family photos.
But this bucolic scene in his father's village of Kogelo near the Equator in western Kenya conceals a troubling reality that, until now, has never been spoken about. Barack Obama, the Evening Standard can reveal, after we went to the village earlier this month, has failed to honour the pledges of assistance that he made to a school named in his honour when he visited here amid great fanfare two years ago.
At that historic homecoming in August 2006 Obama was greeted as a hero with thousands lining the dirt streets of Kogelo. He visited the Senator Obama Kogelo Secondary School built on land donated by his paternal grandfather.
After addressing the pupils, a third of whom are orphans, and dancing with them as they sang songs in his honour, he was shown a school with four dilapidated classrooms that lacked even basic resources such as water, sanitation and
He told the assembled press, local politicians (who included current Kenyan Prime Minister Raila Odinga), and students: "Hopefully I can provide some assistance in the future to this school and all that it can be." He then turned to the school's principal, Yuanita Obiero, and assured her and her teachers: "I know you are working very hard and struggling to bring up this school, but I have said I will assist the school and I will do so."
Obiero says that although Obama did not explicitly use the word "financial" to qualify the nature of the assistance he was offering, "there was no doubt among us [teachers] that is what he meant. We interpreted his words as meaning
he would help fund the school, either personally or by raising sponsors or both, in order to give our school desperately-needed modern facilities and a facelift". She added that 10 of the school's 144 pupils are Obama's relatives. Obiero was not the only one to think that the US Senator from Illinois, who had recently acquired a $1.65 million house in Chicago, would cough up. Obama's own grandmother Sarah confidently told reporters before his visit:
"When he comes down here, he will change the face of the school and, believe me, our poverty in Kogelo will be a thing of the past."
But the Evening Standard has heard that the promises he made to help the school as well as a local orphanage appear to have been empty.
Seven months ago I travelled to Iowa to cover the start of the US primaries and was impressed by Obama's charisma and integrity as he kicked off a thrilling battle with Hillary Clinton for the Democratic Presidential nomination.
Now, with only John McCain standing in the way of him making history as America's first black President, and amid the fanfare over his current world tour, nowhere is this possibility more eagerly awaited than in Kogelo, the place where his father and grandfather are buried. Yet there is disappointment and hurt here, too. Granting us access to the school and its records, Principal Obiero, 48, tells us: "Senator Obama has not honoured the promises he gave me when we met in 2006 and in his earlier letter to the school. He has not given us even one shilling. But we still have hope."
The letter Obiero refers to - dated 22 June 2005, signed by Obama and addressed to her - was written after his election to the US Senate in 2004 and hangs, framed, on the wall of her spartan office alongside photographs of Obama's visit to their school. It says: "I am honoured that you have decided to rename the Kogelo School in my name.The land that the school is built on was donated by my grandparents and I am proud to carry on the tradition of supporting the school."
Obiero and her board of governors followed up his letter offering " support" with a bald, formal request for funds in the form of a nine-page proposal, a copy of which has been provided to the Evening Standard, laying out their ambitions for the school. In it they ask for 8.2 million Kenyan shillings (approximately £65,000) to upgrade the school. The money would be used, they say, to bring water to the school by sinking a borehole and building a water
tank, erect a perimeter fence, complete the science laboratory and add muchneeded new classrooms, additional latrines, and a school dining hall.
Obiero recalls: "When the US Ambassador William Bellamy came to visit the school for the official renaming ceremony in February 2006, we gave him two copies of the proposal, one for the Embassy and one to give to Senator Obama. But we have not heard anything from either of them since."
Recently, she adds, she gave another copy of the proposal to Obama's Kenyan half-sister, Auma Obama, who recently returned to Nairobi after living in England and working in children's services in Reading. Auma had been married to a British man but they are now divorced. "Auma also promised to pass it on to her brother," says Obiero.
When we ask an Obama spokesperson in Kenya, who is also a family member, why no support has been forthcoming, he says: "We have no comment, the family are not doing any interviews at this time."
However, the school's senior teacher Dalmas Raloo, 41, who is often used as a translator for Obama's grandmother who only speaks Luo, and is a friend of the family, says the family are mystified by what they are calling "Obama's lapse". "If you ask whether Obama's family think he should give something to the village and to the school, the answer is 'yes, definitely'. But they feel it should come from him spontaneously. They don't want to ask him for it."
During Obama's visit to the school, he opened their half-finished science laboratory (built with £4,900 raised by the community) and wrote in the visitor's book: "Congratulations on the new laboratory!" Today, the lab has been mothballed because they ran out of funds to equip it and because, critically, there is no running water. "We must pay the man with the donkey to fetch us water from the river four kilometres away," says Obiero. The situation in the school mirrors that of Kogelo village where the people live without water, electricity or access to proper
healthcare and on average incomes of less than $1 a day. Yet they remain diehard fans of the man who has put their rural community on the map and have even renamed the beer, called Senator, in his honour: locals now order "an Obama".
Obama's "lapse" is all the more difficult to understand given that he wrote in his 1995 autobiography, Dreams from My Father, that Kogelo occupies a special place in his heart as being where he reconciled the diverse parts of
himself - American and African, white mother and black father. Obama wrote how he fell to his knees, sobbing, between the graves of his father and grandfather at the family compound.
"When my tears were finally spent," he wrote, "I felt a calmness wash over me. I felt the circle finally close. I realised that who I was, what I cared about, was no longer just a matter of intellect or obligation, no longer a construct of words. I saw that my life in America - the black life, the white life, the sense of abandonment I'd felt as a boy, the frustration and hope I'd witnessed in Chicago - all of it was connected with this small plot of earth an ocean away."
Obama had visited Kogelo for the first time in the 1980s after attending Columbia University and then again in 1991 to research his memoirs after graduating from Harvard Law School. He would later become a civil rights lawyer and community organiser before going into politics and serving in the Illinois Senate in 1997 and then the US Senate in 2004.
On those two voyages of personal discovery to Kogelo, he learned that his grandfather, Hussein Onyango Obama, who lived to 105 according to his gravestone (1870-1975), had been a respected elder and witchdoctor. But it was the road travelled by his estranged father, Barack Hussein Obama, that inspired and intrigued him. His father had transcended his roots as a goat herder to get a PhD at Harvard and work for the Kenyan government before falling from grace and dying in a car accident in 1982 at just 46.
Barack's father, an economist, had split up with his white mother, Ann Dunham, from Kansas, when Barack was two. Apart from a month-long visit from his father when he was 10 years old, Obama would know him only through letters.
As an adult he learned there was a darker side to his father, reflecting in his book that he had apparently also been "a bitter drunk", "an abusive husband", and "a defeated, lonely bureaucrat". But during this process of soul-searching he came to know and adore the elderly woman who had raised his father, his step-grandmother Sarah Obama.
We had been told that Sarah's house, which is adjacent to the school, was patrolled by two armed security guards - who pays their wages is not clear - but when we visited the home, Sarah was away in Nairobi and we were shown in by one of Obama's young cousins.
The house is basic with a concrete floor, an outside kitchen, latrines and no running water. The only sign of modernity is the recently installed solar power unit that provides electricity for lights and a television set.
Chairs are neatly laid out around the sides of the living room, each with an embroidered cover and as you enter, there is a photograph of a young Barack Obama bent over under the weight of a sack of maize.
THE graves of Obama's father and grandfather are in the yard, and Obama's cousins and uncles, including Said Obama, 41, his father's younger brother, also live on the compound in smaller one-room houses. Behind the house there is a thriving maize plantation and a clump of banana trees in addition to the giant mango trees that dominate the property. Villagers say that despite her age, Sarah Obama still comes to market where she sells her homegrown fruit and vegetables.
The market is where we head next to speak to villagers about their hopes for an Obama victory in November and what it might do for their village. Mary Manasse, 40, who runs the Mama Siste Mini Shop selling staples such as bread and cow's milk (packaged in old Coke bottles) says she has a photograph of Obama shaking hands with her on his 2006 visit.
"Back then I was looking after 40 orphans at the orphan centre," she recalls. "We faced a desperate shortage of money and Obama told us that he especially liked special, dedicated projects like ours and wanted to help. We thought he would give funds to help our project but we got nothing. A few months later we were forced to shut down the orphan centre because of lack of funds. Just a million Kenyan shillings [£6,000] would have kept us going another year. I feel disappointed that he did not come through."
A few stalls away mango-seller Gladys Anyango, 60, does an impromptu Obama impression to the amusement of her fellow peddlers. She places her hands on her hips, gazes into the middle distance and, mimicking his deep voice, says: "How are you, people of Kogelo?" Her friends collapse with laughter. She also takes off Obama's wife, Michelle, who had accompanied him on his visit along with his two daughters, Malia and Sasha.
"Oh, but there will be a big party here when Obama wins," she adds. "We still have hope that he will bring electricity and build schools so the children have a good education. Maybe when he's President of America, he'll remember his roots and look after his community in Kenya."

Kenyan News Confused?? What do they know over yonder?
Sunday, June 27, 2004
Kenyan-born Obama all set for US Senate
Kenyan-born US Senate hopeful, Barrack Obama, appeared set to take over the Illinois Senate seat after his main rival, Jack Ryan, dropped out of the race on Friday night amid a furor over lurid sex club allegations.
The allegations that horrified fellow Republicans and caused his once-promising candidacy to implode in four short days have given Obama a clear lead as Republicans struggled to fetch an alternative.
Ryan’s campaign began to crumble on Monday following the release of embarrassing records from his divorce. In the records, his ex-wife, Boston Public actress Jeri Ryan, said her former husband took her to kinky sex clubs in Paris, New York and New Orleans.
"It’s clear to me that a vigorous debate on the issues most likely could not take place if I remain in the race," Ryan, 44, said in a statement. "What would take place, rather, is a brutal, scorched-earth campaign – the kind of campaign that has turned off so many voters, the kind of politics I refuse to play."
Although Ryan disputed the allegations, saying he and his wife went to one ‘avant-garde’ club in Paris and left because they felt uncomfortable, lashed out at the media and said it was "truly outrageous" that the Chicago Tribune got a judge to unseal the records.
The Republican choice will become an instant underdog in the campaign for the seat of retiring Republican Senator Peter Fitzgerald, since Obama held a wide lead even before the scandal broke.
"I feel for him actually," Obama told a Chicago TV station. "What he’s gone through over the last three days I think is something you wouldn’t wish on anybody."
The Republican state committee must now choose a replacement for Ryan, who had won in the primaries against seven contenders. Its task is complicated by the fact that Obama holds a comfortable lead in the polls and is widely regarded as a rising Democratic star.
The chairwoman of the Illinois Republican Party, Judy Topinka, said at a news conference, after Ryan withdrew, that Republicans would probably take several weeks to settle on a new candidate.
"Obviously, this is a bad week for our party and our state," she said.
As recently as Thursday, spokesmen for the Ryan campaign still insisted that Ryan would remain in the race. Ryan had defended himself saying, "There’s no breaking of any laws. There’s no breaking of any marriage laws. There’s no breaking of the Ten Commandments anywhere."
Poor Jack - you just can't compete with a connected guy who can pull records or make things disappear.
Bet 5 bucks Obama denies knowing where Kenya is...
Several Kenyan Newspapers write that OBama was born there.(refind)
On the other hand you can find a Commentator at same Kenyan Paper who writes in the same time period that Obama is NOT a son of the soil.
Without finding a sourced Obama quote or some legal Hawaiian or Kenyan documents we may never know.
"Tonight, I speak to you not as a candidate for President, but as a citizen - a proud citizen of the United States, and a fellow citizen of the world." -Obama
I'm going to try to avoid my head shaking comments on Obama's grandiose moment in time speech or this could turn into a rather lengthy "I lowered the oceans" and re-invented the internet write-up.
Obama is a manipulating opportunist.
Obama first tells us he is going on a 'fact finding' mission, and NOT campaigning.
Meanwhile, he has a plane being painted, US flag removed from plane tail, campaign idoltry sticker embedded, and slogans down the length of this plane for his non-campaign trip.
Then when tax payers complain that he thinks we are fools, he sees again he is caught and splits the difference. The campaign will pay for part of the trip and the taxpayers can pay for the part where he is presumed to be an acting Senator while in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Meanwhile, previous to having ever left the states, the significance of the "gorbachev gate" speech which had already been written, becomes clear when Obama tells us all of the "walls" that have to be torn down. The 'tear down those walls' photo-op moment invoking Reagan.
But this wasn't a staged campaign trip.
Meanwhile back in Israel they are tearing down all of the Obama posters his staff have hung up on walls at sacred sites.
But this wasn't a campaign trip.
To empathize this non--campaign fact finding trip he tells
200,000 20,000 gathered germans (many of whom were waving the same size US flags in the crowd, apparently they brought these from their own homes) that:
"Tonight, I speak to you not as a candidate for President, but as a citizen - a proud citizen of the United States, and a fellow citizen of the world."
Soooo, for some reason every stagecrafted effort is made to make this egomanic's moment, at the center of his own royal universe, look like a campaign while in 'words', every effort is made too deny it.
This wasn't a campaign trip.
Ok , we all know it was - and it is- but it's not - and it's NOT - but it is - and
Team Obama persisted with the preposterous contention that the Berlin speech was not a campaign event, Susan Rice, another Obama foreign policy aide, was also accused of hubris.
"It is not going to be a political speech,' she said. "When the President of the United States goes and gives a speech, it is not a political speech or a political rally." A reporter reminded her: "But he is not President of the United States."
So ok. So it's not a campaign speech.
So here is the kicker. Why is it a proud citizen of the United States, not on a campaign tour, immediately does two things.
1. Uses his speech to start sending out emails for those Campaign contributions.
2. States that plans to go and visit wounded warriors at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center, a military hospital in Germany, and the Ramstein Air Base, had been cancled because Obama felt it would appear to be "inappropriate" for a candidate to do so while campaigning.
Nothing else he has done is inappropriate - but seeing our wounded troops is?
He is campaigning - he's not campaigning - he is- he's not -he is ... One of us is dizzy.
“The senator decided out of respect for these servicemen and women that it would be inappropriate to make a stop to visit troops at a U.S. military facility as part of a trip funded by the campaign,” Gibbs said.
OUT of "respect for"?
Yeah, out of respect for your service and sacrafice I am going to diss you all- because after all the denials- this is the campaign leg of my trip - so long.
Because of Obama's 'dual' stance and rhetoric on everything he can't make proper choices or do the right things.
The audacity of this guy grows and grows. But his decission process is just as bad.
How to avoid an appearnce of "inappropriate" candidate photo-op moments? Or accusations of pandering to the voters via the troops as backdrop?
Well, doh-ing- you go see and talk privately to the troops who have sacraficed for this country, as a world citizen or as A US Senator, and you leave your press mob behind.
I mean after all Obama worked out a way to meet 2 months ago /privately/ with Imam Qazwini, who supports Palestinian homicide bombings, HAMAS, and Hezbollah.
Now that's appropreate respect?
Apparently if Obama, who had time to shoot some hoops, can't get some photos and make a speech then he just doesn't have time for the wounded warriors; or the guy just can't make appropreate decissions.
BTW, have you ever seen Obama pass out US flags here at home? I've only seen them once in his crowds.
Setting aside his speech for redistribution of global wealth, shared sacrafice, barely resisting denigrating imperfect America as usual, and openly running for president of a marxist world...
Obama's non-campaign pandering for approval of most Europeans who want a European Socialist President, and dislike the United States immensely, and then disrespecting our troops by saying he didn't want the appearance of 'pandering' while campaigning is utter nonsense.
So in the entire trip the one moment in time that a clear Obama picture of what part of it was actual "campaigning" was defined at last in not visiting America's wounded troops.
Obama has no business being their Commander in Chief.
Now we are hearing 2 days later (On CNN no less!!) that when Obama heard there would be NO CAMERAS allowed, nor his CAMPAIGN STAFF, it is Then that he decided to call off the trip to see the troops even though he was approved to go as A U.S. Senator, with any Senatorial staff.
The Pentagon did not deny Obama access to the troops as Obama's third or fourth bumbling excuse has tried to portray.
In addition letters from soldiers are drifting in claiming that Obama made no efforts to talk with troops in Iraq and Afghanistan either - one such letter here: Victory comes from winning, not from "change."
So there you go. Now the dizzy back and forth - is campaigning- is not campaigning - makes perfect sense now. He didn't go to the scheduled trip to visit the wounded troops because the cameras wouldn't be on him.
This Obama is dispicable.

Obama: “There is no military solution to Iraq
No military solution to Iraq- but there is a military solution in Afghanistan?
Politicians, I swear.
You know, only 36 hours InCountry and this guy is already a military expert!
Obama: "The same factors that led me to oppose the surge still hold true."
We'll never know what would have happened if they had followed my plan of no surge...
Yeah, and if only I would have drove the truck, instead walking, I might have had the card with I-18 on it in last weeks BINGO game! I'm gettin' rid of my legs.
This is the guy who says Iran is just some insignificant puny non dangerous piss-ant insect of a country.
But hold on cause you knew it was coming. Then sometime between Perrier and waffels he 'changes' his Iran rhetoric to:
"the danger from Iran is grave...and my goal will be to eliminate this threat."
The Iran change-up must have been driven by some "are you kidding me?" poll that came out that hadn't been stuffed by Obama phone banks.
It's not hard to tell if he is for something before he is against it, or vice versa.
But the Media let's him slide.
He simply has to come out with, "I never said that...what I said is..."
Generaly there is such a blatant contrast between what he had said, and -re-said, that you have to sit there with your jaw on the floor sayin', HUH?
Of course then all these redactions gets buried by the Media's Harry meets Sally tingle running up their legs, and people don't get to see the three sides of Obama before we are off to something new. Or revised.
It's impossible to keep up with the 'changes'... just yesterday he was a member of the Senate Banking Committee ...Nooooooooooope.
nOW Here's the Obama surge irony:
Obama will still tell you that the military surge didn't work in Iraq, even though violence is down, but at the same time he is telling you that what Afghanistan needs is more military because violence is up.
Of course Obama knows what would happen if they follow a plan of implementing a 'surge' in Afghanistan by using Iraq's military progress as the model.
Therefore, the "surge" must have worked, or else he is touting sending troops to Afghanistan for what reason?
From what I have read Obama does not make decisions from facts on the ground, and therefore does not allow for choices in the best interest of the United States.
He's made statements that he must take into account what is politicaly best suited on a global basis. (refind exact words)
My feelings about the corrupt and useless United Nations and what they think is best for Our Country is another whole EF-few write-up.
Obama doesn't give a rats behind what the facts on the ground are in Iraq or what the military experts tell him. Iraq is unpopular politicaly, Afghanistan is supported, so he plays on that base to get himself votes.
The facts that should concern Obama:
Whatever it takes to make Iraq safer makes the U.S. safer.
A successful non-chaotic Iraq is in the best interest of the United States.
Preserve freedom that allowed for those that held up those Purple Fingers.
Acknowlege the honorable troops on the ground as the providers of success & safety.
The facts that actually concern Obama:
Making decisions on what is in the best successful self-interests of Obama.
He has even Removed his previous "surge" won't work comments from his website.
This is still on the surge page though -"Judgment You Can Trust."-
The one thing you can count on is Obama's character.
Should Afghanistan, Israel, or even puppies become unpopular he'll abandon it like a hot potato(e).
Hopefully, we'll never know what would have happened in our own country if Obama had been voted in as Commander and Chief.

So lets touch on a little bit o' Barry history as an Obama patriotic-pattern still being ignored.
Obama voted against "The Flag Protection Amendment". An Amendment protecting our Nations Flag from being desecrated.
Barack Obama calls flag pins “a substitute for true patriotism.”
Obama says, "I don’t mind people wearing pins or putting stickers on their cars as a show of support for their country or their cause" states Obama. "I am, however, irritated by the notion that so doing makes them somehow superior to those who don’t."
..."or their cause...?
It's so nice of Obama to not mind people actually showing support for their country...and the country's causes. But what irritates me, is the notion that Senator Obama doesn't seem to understand that The symbol of the USA, it's pins, stickers and Flag, does not make people feel superior.
Mr. Obama --- it makes them feel "PROUD!"
This is something this Obama doesn't seem to understand.
He sure set his notion of "clingin' to" stubborn principles aside and began sticking that ole flag pin on when it became beyond clear that not wearing a flag pin was hurting his image though, didn't he.
This, "I don't have too, you can't make me!" stubborn childish attitude is a learning curve we just don't need.
You won't find an American Flag anywhere around Obama in most of his appearances.
Oh, I don't mean in his speech's when he's getting himself cleaned up from some unAmerican episodic bama-gaff.
You certainly won't find more than a couple at his website by a poster here or there.
Obama's newest irritating notion of respect for our country's flag symbol was to have Our Flag removed from his plane's tail section and replace it with his own Obamanism symbol before flying over to Europe and the Middle -East.
Why is it that Senator Obama doesn't understand that removing our Country's flag, with the notion that his own cause and symbol "sticker" is superior to our Homelands, is not a substitute for true patriotism, but an irritating Lack of support for our Country's ideals and causes. Especially when he is flying over to other country's in which he states he is going "as a US Senator" in an apparent campaign boosting guise of representing us.
The picture I get is:
I come to you not as a representative of the United States but as a Candidate who removed It's symbol to represent myself. Me before Country.
I have replaced Old Glory with the New Glory of "O".
My fellow bamboozeled tax paying American citizens are paying for this Circus for me as a Senator and Not as a campaigner - I tell you they'll fall for anything! Just look at my refurbished plane again in which my campaign info is plastered all over it if you don't believe me. I am not campaigning! Read my lips. This is not about me- it's about you!
I'm on a fact finding mission and had hoped to find some answers to world wide problems at the Brandenburg Gate.

Senator Obama, who has stated he would meet anytime and anywhere in TownHall meetings with Senator John Mccain, has been ducking every TownHall meeting invitation.
Invitation, hell. He's been offered any date he has open and he runs away like he has a hot meeting with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad who he's willing to meet anytime anywhere with no preconditions.
What is it Senator Obama is afraid that he may be asked in Fort Hood, by a military crowd, in an unstructured interview by ordinary folk instead of by his biased obama-luvin' media pals?
Apparently Obama just won't agree to meet with our Country's military patriots without preconditions.
He may be afraid that his cloaking device will be unplugged now that he has so many unanswered "issues" about his character and honesty and flipflopping to answer too.
I have a few ideas about what Military questions might be presented to Obama he is hiding from, but perhaps another platform of Townhall meetings Obama wants to avoid might go something like this: satire?
Questioner: Did you say in 2004 that you did not have the experience to run for President in 2008?
Obama: Well let me make it perfectly clear what I had been consistently consistent in saying back then - was I , um, what was the question? In which year?
Q: Senator, when asked if your intent was to serve out the six year senate term or make a run for the presidency you said it was a 'silly question" and that "I’ve never worked in Washington, I can unequivocally say I will not be running for national office in four years, and my entire focus is making sure that I’m the best possible senator on behalf of the people of Illinois."
Obama: Well I may have said, " Ah-ah-mumble-mumble, there's a presidential election in four years. I'm not running for president in four years." But, mumble-mumble, things on the ground have 'changed'. I am the one we have been waiting for. I am the Hope. I am Historical. But, listen, I have been consistent in saying that this election is not about me - it's about you! My wife would tell you, if you can't vote for me - then uh,um, you must be a ramumblecist.
Q: Well with little over one year as Senator, in which your voting record is pretty much non commital, and 2 years running a campaign, can you say your experience in having still never worked in Washington has changed?
Obama: I can unequivocally say this is a hard job. You see my hair turning gray? The people of Illinois understand I am doing this for them. It's been a long campaign with loads of experience. After Iowa it was on to the world! Don't you realize who you are talking too? "Generations from now we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment" -- when, among other wonders, "the rise of the oceans began to slow!!" The people of Illinois understand this.
Q: But you haven't even shown up for votes - you voted "present" 130 times when you were there - the people you represent
Obama: We don't need people - we just need the checks!
We have another question for Senator Obama from this nice lady from Georgia.
Obama: Hold on a minute, sweety! I'd like to go back and make it consistently clear that many times you don't vote Yes or No in Illinois. It's not the way it's done there.
Q:Isn't this a stradegy to avoid any future politically controversial yes or no votes that you can be held to answer to?
Obama: ? Where you been? I already consistently said that I would not be running for president during those votes. My motives were pure! You don't believe me? Read my follow up politics in my second Book, the Audacity of trying to cover up the racism in my first Book.
Now there was a time when I hadn't looked far enough ahead beyond local Chicago politics. I grimaced re-reading it and had it changed on re-editions.
Besides, read the News, I don't have to answer to anything or anyone. All I have to do is show up. Present! The important vote is your vote for me. Be present!
We want you children to grab an adult and drag them alive or dead into the voting booth. Paint them a picture. Write them a story.
Go to my website, where peoples of all religions, race, creed, nationality, group, old, young, Women, terrorist sympathizers and radical politics are divided up into a convienent welcome format for you to Unite into your own separate American sections.
The USA is the Greatest Country in the World!! The Time to change it is Now!
YES we Can! Yes we Can!
Well, I'm not sure you clarified why you have so many "present" votes with that, but let's get back to this questioner Senator.
Q: Why do you have a forged Birth Certificate on your website?
Obama: You see this is what I get. It's a certificate of Live Birth. C.O.L.B.
Michelle has told you - "America is ignorant".
But people insist on mislabeling it as a birth certificate. My staff has to send out millions of emails categoricaly denying any presence of a false Birth Certificate on my website. What I will refuse to do, is that, um, ah, that somehow, is to allow my words to be questioned. There is no such thing there.
Q: But, Senator aren't you just playing word games here? The question is -
Obama: Words matter!!
Q - weather you -
Obama: Don't tell me words don't matter! We are the change that we seek! You people must not be listening to me!
Q: - you have a forged state document on your web site?
Obama; It's a non-issue. You see me? I was born. I am here. I'm right here. Why am I getting all the tough questions? I no longer need to be vetted. I'm the nominee. Don't vote against me because of who I am -- and I know you won't. I lowered the oceans!
Q: You certainly have a gift for redirecting. Let me try this. There doesn't seem to be any Hospital records of your birth - why don't you produce a true Birth Certificate and quell all these questions about -
Obama: Well, you know, I've been in favor of that from the start but I won't be questioned on this. People should do their jobs and not spread mis-information. It doesn't matter what I said or did 10 years ago- what matters is what I can do for you for the next 10 years. I'm going to demand hard work from you all and -
Q: So you won't answer the question?
Obama: Well, as I've said all along, I've been quite consistent in answering your questions.
Q:ok, well, lets move on. In your Book "Dreams from My father" did you, or did you not, say in it that you made faces at the teacher while studying in your Koranic classes?
Obama: You know this has all been hashed and rehashed. I have instituted a Goon-squad to infiltrate the net to wipe out these lies by liars. My FighttheFears website unequivocally has straightened out the truth. People believe I was sworn in on a Koran - that wasn't me -talk to Keith!
Q: Did you, or did you not, say in your autobiography that you made faces at the teacher while studying in your Koranic classes?
Obama: What part of avoiding your question with a straight answer confused you?
I've been very clear that the American people want to stay on the issues...I'd like to ask Senator McCain a question...can someone pleeeeeeeeeease wake him up?
Q: But Senator, certainly it would be an 'issue' to the American people if you have been untruthful about...
Obama: You see this is why I have resisted these Town hall style of meetings. The internet has provided so much background on me that it's hard to keep up- I can be asked some of the most racist hateful things and expected to come up with an answer without a Teleprompter. Is this any way to run a clean campaign?
Q: You haven't answered the question - let me ask you another one- isn't "HUSSEIN" a Muslim name straight from the Koran?
Obama: We don't speak of my middle name- it's racist and divisive.
Q: The fact that you have an Arab name is racist?
Obama: And funny.
Q: Well what I am tryin to get to here is
Obama: I have repeatedly said that Hussein is Hebrew for 'blessed'...
Q: Well that's what you said to a jewish group - but then you told a black group that it was swahiili...Hussein actually comes out of the Koran as does Barack,...Obama is also Arabic.
Obama: semantics. anti-semantics. As my website states it is 'vile' to keep accussing me of being Muslim. There's nothing wrong with being a muslim unless you aren't one. What we need here is a health care system that will cover the world. I have a plan. No one will be left behind. Corporations can afford it. My Global Welfare Act will revolutionize! We are our brother's keeper. Individualism is selfish. Someone is going to have to give up a piece of their pie so that someone else can have more.
Tax payers can turn their air conditioners down. Ride a bike. You waste my time when you distract from the issues. Did I tell you that the Republicans will try to tell you that I am a scary guy with a funny name.
Q: Let's try to get back to...listen, You are running as America's first Black President but aren't you actually an Arab-American, or Kenyan-American?
Obama: Why do you people do this? My mother was white, my granfather fought in WW11, although a bit murky as to details and funny looking documents on my website, I was allegedly born sometime,somewhere, in Hawaii. I watched astronuats come ashore. I am American. There is No Black or white America. John Mccain is a good American, an honorable man, Hillary is likeable enough. Don't vote for either one because they aren't the one we've been waiting for. Arabs are good people but gasoline prices are up and my foriegn over-seas paypal donations are way down ...How could I not be black enough when 92% of blacks voted for me because of my race? I am historical!! Have I mentioned the Republicans will say I'm black?
Q: Senator, we'll get to that. But, by being born Muslim, of your fathers bloodline, and later becoming unapologicticaly christian aren't you now considered to be an apostate? A death sentence in the Arab islamic World? Couldn't this present a problem -
Obama: Look, I have consistently said my father was a non practicing Muslim goat herder who abandoned his family for another white woman and became a disallussioned drunken victim of European politics. The bloodline thing is a bit murky too, which is why I rethought my no preconditions statements after having my Christianity questioned - we'll have to come to some security understandings before I sit down to negotiate America's surrender.
Obama: Where are my spokespersons? They will clear this up tommorrow. ah, um, uh, Islam means 'surrender'- I was probably thinking about that out loud. Yeah, that will work. I misthought. Misssspoke. You know next week I will remind you that I never said that. Everytime you people do this I have to come up with a new speech. Anyone have a smoke??
Q: Senator. What the people care about is that you have LIED about your ties to Islam. Many of your asscoiates and donors are tied to Islam. Several of the Boards you sat on funded terrorist groups. Why have you stated consistently that you are not Muslim and have never been Muslim when you state in your autobiography that you went to a muslim school and studied your koranic verses?
Obama: Distractions. You think that if you keep repeating it then people will believe it. I can do that too! I have repeatedly said that I am unapologetically Christian. I have always been Christian. We need to reach across the asile and bring all of the religions together. We can demand a lot more entitlments that way when churchs find common ground and set aside minor differences. Power to the people! Have I told you lately that I'm Christian? I can give you a few versus from Sermon on the Mount if you are a disbeliever.
Q: So you are not going to admit that you wrote that you had Muslim schooling in your Book? That you wrote that Malcom-X offered the only path to black nationalism that was different? That your church gave a Man of the Year Award to anti-semite, Louis Farrakah, the Nation of Islam racist leader?
Obama: That's the type of politics we are trying to get away from. You can't judge a man by the characters around him. I'm around Republicans everyday. I'm even friendly with one or two. It doesn't mean I agree with them. Some of them are not even the Republicans I used to know. I'm Christian.
Q: Well I guess that brings us to a questioner who wants to know how you could deny knowing what was going on in this Black Liberation racist church that you attended for 20 years?
Obama: It wasn't racist on the days I attended.
Q: So, it was, basicaly, only racist on the days that you didn't attend?
Obama: I didn't say that.
Q: Well, how could you not know? You eventually had to quit the church and -
Obama: People were calling sick people...the church was being harrassed. I didn't disown the church I saved it from distraction.
Q: So it was important to you that this racist theology continue on it's merry way and stop being exposed and harrassed? Senator you took your children to this biggoted madrassa styled congregation. What does that say to your judgment? To your moral credentials? More generations of people, cheering and applauding, while being taught to hate doesn't sound Christian to me.
Obama: Blacks are understandably angry. I'm a Christian. Whites
are feel guilty. You sound bitter. I know a good pastor who will be available on November 5th you could talk to. I am Chrisitian.
Q: With a Funny name.
Obama: Have you mentioned that I'm Black?
Obama: That's racist.
Q: I'm racists?
Obama: You said it not me!
Q: Senator, senator, how can a church that believes in the destruction of the so called white enemy and the white mans god be considered christian?
Obama: It was not like that when I showed up. I repeatedly denied ever hearing such divisive talk from my pastor.
Q: Well actually didn't you confess just a few days later that you had lied about never hearing such -
Obama: I have consistently said that there might have been a few "controversial" things I might have heard. I never lie.
Q: Yes we have seen the type of controversial people you surround yourself with.
The list seems to grow daily.
Obama: Can we move on? People don't care about this. They want to know what they are going to do about gasoline in their SUV's and being able to cling to their 2nd amendment rights.
For the woman who wrote me and asked for a job because she couldn't afford to put her grandmother through High school any longer. These are the people who tell my stories- sing my songs.
Remind me to send her a raffel ticket for my Coronation in the Grand Coliseum.
I am the fierce urgency of now.
"Allah is Supreme!
Allah is Supreme!
I witness that there is no god but Allah
I witness that there is no god but Allah
I witness that Muhammad is his prophet "
Ah, now that's just the prettiest sound on earth at sunset. Don't you think?
Where were we?
Oh, yes, I am the Dream!
Q: Ok, What is your position on Israel?
Obama: What day is it?
Obama: I'll have to have someone check my schedule. It depends on who I am addressing today. It could be that Israel is likable enough and will have Jerusalem as it's undivided Capital. I say so. That's it. No more questions!
On the other hand tommorrow after I think about it and if Palestinians and American Arabs object after hearing something like this, then the alternative is for the parties to get together and have disscussions.
Someone is going to have to give up a piece of their pie so that someone else can have more.
I have been consistent in my stance that as president eveything will change. We will conversate. This moment in time is the world in which Hope will bring people together from all sides without conditions and greed. We can't have barbed wire running through Jerusalem and dividing it. That's what I meant! Yeah, that'll work.
Q:HUH? Senator, have discussions?
Isn't that what every administration has tried to have these two peoples do for decades -
Obama: and Change.
Q: Change? But, if neither side will
Obama: and Progress!
Q: Senator should Israel give up it's nukes?
Obama: I think Countries should lead by example. It's leaders should lead by example. That's why in my first term as president I will eliminate all US nukes, I will cut investments in unproven missile defense systems. I will slow our development of future combat systems, trim down the military, bring home billions of monthly Iraqi dollars needed for my entitlement programs. I don't switch positions or make promises that can't be kept. I don't posture on defense policy and I don't take money from federal lobbyists for powerful defense contractors. As president, my sole priority for defense spending will be protecting the American people. I will institute a civilian national security force! I believe in a nuke free world in which, although we may be the only ones without them, it will make us safer in the long run.
Q: How so? What sort of deterents to agressiveness, and threats of annialation, will you have by making this Country's military and defense systems weaker?
Obama: The weak are victims. When we appear to be victims we can demand justice. If we appear not to be so arrogant and mighty we can kneel down and talk. The strong always negotiate to retain their power base. Make them feel guilty! The weak regain power from the bottom up. We must negotiate. Teach them empathy! That's Progress!
Q: Haven't we all been talking for 30-40 years? What good has talk done? Only sanctions and Time has forced small degress of --
Obama: The TIME is Now! We can to seize the moment! We will topple the conservative enemy's of Mohammeds peaceful religion by finding out what they want and help provide for a fair distribution of services, opportunities and employment.
Islam's suffering poverty and ignorance, and helplessness has caused these people to act out of despair! Religion has nothing to do with the Muslim violence!!
We must make Islam dependent upon us. Take away their will. Litigate! Overwhelm them with complaints. Demand compassion! Organize!
Q: But Senator these aren't reasonable nor logical people we are talking about. They want to annihilate Israel, to wipe out the Great Satan.
They want the entire world under Shirah law through a Caliphate conquest. They have been in a cultural war with each other, Sunni vs Shia, for 1400 years. What makes you think you can 'talk' to people like this that blow up bus loads of their own children and Love death more than we love life?
Obama: It's time for 'change'. People understand 'change'. And Hope.
We need to go to a commercial break...feel free to send in your questions and comments for Senator Obama...
Friday, July 18, 2008
On July 2 in Colorado Springs – Obama made a statement that, of course, no one in the Media is asking about. SHhhhhhh!
The statement below is NOT included in the transcripts of Obama's Colorado Springs speech. But we are all getting used to statements being amended, denied, censored or shrugged off.
"We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we've set. We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded."
Why was this statment removed or never included in the speech transcripts if it is something that is as innocuous as blogs like Daily Kos would have you believe?
It isn't in the transcripts for a reason. But it's in the video above.
Obama can keep having his troops remove things, but not fast enough that we won't find them and expose him. The scary thing is that he has become so powerful that it doesn't seem to matter what we find or say while exposing him.
Our military is 500,000 strong [which Obama wants to cut back on] and nearly 450 billion a year in cost.
And Obama [who wants to cut back on military- did I say that already?] see's a need for some kind of "civilian" national security force...just as powerful- just as strong- just as well funded.
Why replace one force with the "other"?
We already have the military branches for our National Security - and we have The National Guard in each state.
We have HomeLand security and it's branches.
We have FBI, US Marshals, Deputies, Sherrifs, Hiway Patrol, Border Patrol and more.
Did he say we needed 450 billion a year for greater police and law enforcement protection? Borders security? (which he is against)
Did he say we need More military to "achieve" whatever this "objective" is?
Noooo, what he said was we need a bunch of collective civilians marching around who are just as mighty as our military. Powerful. Funded.
Perhaps even a day that comes, as our military is whittled to the bone, when they are even more powerful, eh?
He doesn't state why our military can't meet the 'objectives we've set'. Nor does he tell us what those national objectives are that our law enforcement officers, and, or our military, can't meet, and why he deems they can't be 'relied on' to meet them.
Where does he expect to get his well funded "volunteers"? What will motivate them into the Obama ranks?
Why does the Obama plan have such a fixation on 'youth groups'?
Will he cut Federal funding to school districts, as he proposes and now threatens for any students not "VOLUNTERING" in his forced community service programs?
Yes, his little "college for all" speech went from 'volunteer' community service to 'forced' service.
Forced servitude is slavery. Why would one need to remind Obama of that?
What other plans has Obama not fully brought to the table that he could change faster than a COLB?
Will his Health care plan evolve into me being forced into "volunteering" my time to some underprevlidged sweat shop in order to get my medications? Donate or be fined. Serve or die.
A civilian army? Obamalitia? Enforcers?
Why in the world would we need a civilian national security force?
Have you turned your thermostat down today?
What third world fifth column fascist planet does this guy come from?
I have studied Obam and his 'buddies' and their views. I've read his spupporters "ABOUT" pages. A good deal of these want separation, and Police out of their nieghborhoods like the Arabs demand in France. Their own little nieghborhood Kingdoms -funded of course by the Government while you are told to get out. In most cases they want entire States turned over to them. Revolution, baby. Obama's da man.
Just who's going to 'vet' these civies? The Farrakans?
And who's already got nieghborhood armies in place?
How will you keep civilians from becoming their own law, and above the law?
In order to be as powerful as all of our military combined they must be armed, yes?
Who will they report too, and what exactly is this national 'objective'?
We see this gang mentality idiocy in the chaotic nieghborhoods in Baghdad, and Gaza and Lebanon. We see it in their army that turn on each other because their beliefs aren't the same. We see it in their corrupt police officers, and the slain Officers who are stand ups and in the way. We see it in Palestinian children carrying AK-47's.
We saw it in Germany and in the Soviet Union.
We don't need a civilian national security force.
We sure could use some more Law Enforcement Officers though.
This Barack slip-up is one of the dumbest more dangerous things I have heard Obama propose.
And the thing is - I think it is perfectly in Line with the Obama philosophy of "change" for America.
Tiny goose steps.

"The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism, but under the name of liberalism they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program until one day America will be a socialist nation without ever knowing how it happened."
– Norman Thomas, American socialist
If a person surrounds themselves, consistently, with questionable characters, is it fair to start associating that person with company he chooses to keep?
The Black Panthers
Militant Panthers endorse Obama...What do the separtist Panthers know that we don't about Obama?
Louis Farrakhan endorses Obama:
"Barack Obama Is the Hope of the Entire World"
Al Sharpton and his National Action Network, whose record of inciting hatred of white people and especially Jews is well known.
Obama: “Reverend Sharpton is a voice for the voiceless, and a voice for the dispossessed. What National Action Network has done is so important to change America, and it must be changed from the bottom up”
NYC racist Council Member Charles Barron - Black nationalist and former Black Panther.
When asked about Obama’s approaches to black nationalism, Barron replied:
“He said he supports the black community. He’s said he’s been black all his life. You said he’s against black nationalism. He never said that. Matter of fact, he goes to a black liberation theologist church where they believe in a black Christ. So, he is for black people."
Obama's pastor, Reverend Wright, of 20 years and Obama's Church's non-Christian marxist and racist "Black Liberation Theology" manifesto:
"Black theology will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy."
Communists for Obama
Why in the world would Communists support Obama?
Marxist for Obama
Do Marxist recognize something in comrade Obama?
Socialists for Obama:
What the Great State of Texas & Florida Cuban's need to know:
Obama's HOUSTON campaign Office
Cuban Terrorist Che Guevarra hanging 'above the fireplace' in Houston.
What do all of these radical endorsers of Obama KNOW about him, and the 'language' he speaks, that doesn't confuse them at all...
Saul Alinsky, the radical Marxist
Obama TEACHING students Marxist-organizing through Alinsky's "Power Analysis" philosophy.
The New Party is an unabashed Marxist “fusion” party from which Barack Obama actively sought out and received an endorsement for his state senate candidacy in 1996 and he used a number of New Party volunteers as campaign workers.
Bill Ayers - Obama supporter and friend - Weatherman member, a Communist-driven American terrorist. ''I don't regret setting bombs,'' Bill Ayers said. ''I feel we didn't do enough.'' [Ayers, contempt for America, standing on our flag.]
Obama blog staffer a Communist (there are many more)
Sam Graham-Felsen, a journalist-on-leave from The Nation,[another communist organization] joined Obama for America in March 2007 where he works for the New Media department as the official blogger, daily presenting the campaign’s public face @ barackobama.com.
Here is a flag, Obama staffer, Graham brought back from Russia to hang in his apartment.
more supporters/endorsers to be added- Castro, Chavez, Hamas, Qadafi, etc
Most people in the country are suffering in some way or another.
Housing, jobs, employment, health care, the wars, gasoline prices...you name it it is probably touching us all in various ways that are hurting.
So when someone comes along and shouts "CHANGE!" we need a "CHANGE" - we are all liable to perk up and shout - "OH, Hell Yah! Fock this sh*t! I need a change, jack!"
Ok, some of us might say it less eloquently...
But most won't even see or hear anything beyond that word "change".
If a devil came and told you he could 'change' all those above things for you, and all you had to do was believe in him and become one of his followers, would you except the trade?
People are hearing the word "change" because they so despartley need it - but they are oblivious to the consquences of this snake-oil salesman, Obama. He bounces left right and center because he has no core, no truth in values, no conviction in words.
Obama was one way, and said things one way, against Hillary. When things on the ground changed and he is facing McCain, with the very same issues, his position has to now change. A different kind of 'politician', eh?
In order to invade the White House, the legislatative, and judicial branches, with Communist, radicals, racists, and terrorist sympathizers, (Obama appointments) who will be making and administrating their neoLaws and programs, Obama must appear to be all things to all people right now. Obama would change again quicker than gas prices once he was crowned.
Hundreds of thousands have died to protect this country, and yes to help further wonderful 'changes' in this country. These brave souls would never turn this country over to a communist regime. We must not turn this country over to radical militants for a promised loaf of cheapened bread.
We are Americans. We find ways to preservere!
Look at Obama's friends, associates, mentors, teachers, pastors, and family. Look at the kinds of racist and Communist supporters Obama has and his radical campaign staffers and ask yourself can you trade your country's foundation in for what Obama himself means by change - and not what you thought you HOPEd it meant when you needed a "change".
An Obama 'change'.
Do you have any idea at all how many people have been threatened with death for voicing oppostion to Obama or making a disparaging, or truthful, comment?
The list is growing. Ask Steven Colbert. Ask Tavis Smiley, a popular African-American journalist and radio and television host. Ask Mr. anti-semite Al Sharpton who threatened riots in the streets. Vote against him and you get threatened chaos.
Ask Mr. post-racial smirking Obama.
This is the same kind of 'surrender', or else, blackmail that we get from Islam.
It'll be something different, alright. The Marxist tenacles perhaps never removed from our government.
Vote for Non-American principles and values in 08 - and you'll get the Obama change...

Don't we get a third option?
I'd say "Perfect!"
I have read for 5 months now, on the metamorphosis of young Barry, the inventor, into this Onion Barack.
I have read volumes, hours and hours a day, tracing assertions, rumors, quotes and details back to sources- and generally, and with fingers crossed, all the way back to Obama himself.
I can say that everything in this picture, imo, other than Obama residing in the White House, are quite fair depictions of accurate characterizations. Though surely Wright and Farrakhan would adorn their own special Obama walls of infiltration over the fireplaces; behind closed doors.
I've read last night, and heard today, that a major complaint of viewers of this image has been of Our Flag burning in the fireplace.
Well, then I hope that this same majority take equal offense to the fact that when "The Flag Protection Amendment" came up for a vote - Obamasan, who has very little record of votes [other than "Present"] thought the vote was a waste of precious time, laughable, and voted to allow for the contemptuous right to desecrate and burn our American flag.
Michelle as an Angela Davis clone is perfect! Black nationalism. Black Separtism. Black community first and foremost. Black America. Black Power. Black Liberation. Black Panthers endorsing Obama. Farrakhan for our Messiah. Soldiers for Black freedom. Obama, our saviour.
Black America will wake -up and get it -
Didn't someone tell us there was no Black or white America?
What was that guys name?
Ding-Dong - Trick or Treat...
The Denver Group First Ad Hits Chicago
[The Denver Group's first ad appears today (July 11, 2008) in the Chicago Tribune. We thought Chicago was the perfect place to start. For those who want to see a hard copy, it appears on page B5 of the Metro Section. But if you click the ad image [below] you should be able to see a larger version online.]
excerpt from Michelle Obama's Speech:
... these struggles certainly aren't new to my husband, Barack. He understands the struggles. He understands them because he was raised by strong women. He is the product of two great women in his life. His mother and his grandmother. [applause] Barack saw his mother, who was very young and very single when she had him . . .
(full Michelle Obama transcript here)
Here once again we have statements that lead us to believe someone sure can't get their stories straight.
Was there a marriage or not with Obama Senior? I personally don't care but please stop with the 'bamboozling'. . . LIEING.
They were either married, or Michelle is USING (or inventing)a scenario because of the crowd she is speaking too to build a false impression.
That's what's shameful.
The fact will now be on record that Michelle has stated Obama's mother was single, & not married "when she had him".
So once again the Obama's 'stories' do not jive; and once again because of this there will be questions... and the questioners will continue to be labeled.
Nothing Obama does seems to Unite. On the contrary the more we learn truths the more forceful he engages others to obfuscate & divide.
We have a right - no we have a DUTY - to ask questions and to know TRUTH.

When they came for me there was no one left...
The Obama fascist supporters have done it again.
They have Silenced a fellow American, expressing his 'right' to question, with threats to his family for having done so.
(Click on the image BELOW for a clear rendition of this man's website requesting an enquiry into Barack Obama's Questionable Certificate of Live Birth - and his decision to have to shut down his website petition, at birthcertificatenow.com)
A veiled threat was made against myself and my family which included our home address, so I have decided to close the petition for good. It is truly sad that political discourse in our country has come to this.
For those who signed the petition:
Thank you for your support.
Transparency we can believe in.
I guess it wouldn't do much good for me to restart up his petition with the limited traffic I get here - but I'd sure go sit on the guys front porch with him.
We could wait for the Obama Brown Shirts together.

Here is a 544 letter from The Ed Hale Group of Hillary Clinton Supporters for John McCain.
TO THE LEADERS OF THE FAILED DEMOCRATIC PARTY:
WE OPPOSE YOUR SELECTED NOMINEE
Know that Barack Obama, the candidate that YOU selected to be the Democratic Party's nominee to run for president of the United States in 2008, will have to win the election in November with the votes of those YOU made into half-persons in Michigan and Florida.
Know that the candidate that YOU selected will have to win with the votes of the people in states like West Virginia and Kentucky, people he completely ignored during the nomination process.
AND KNOW THAT YOUR SELECTED NOMINEE WILL HAVE TO WIN THE ELECTION IN NOVEMBER WITHOUT THE VOTES OF MILLIONS OF LOYAL DEMOCRATS AND INDEPENDENTS WHO WILL NOT VOTE FOR ANY CANDIDATE WHO WAS SELECTED, NOT ELECTED.
You may choose to believe that we are “FEW,” and you may try to convince the public that we are a “SMALL” group of sore losers and bitter women. We heard you say publicly that we will fall in line in November and that we will vote for a Democrat when we look at the issues.
Well, you are wrong.
We are not few. We will not validate your corruption of the party’s nomination process. We will not fall in line. And we will not vote for Barack Obama, the candidate that you have selected as our party’s nominee through deals made in smoke-filled back rooms.
We are angry.
We are angry because you failed to uphold our party’s democratic principles. We are angry because you did not ensure that all candidates received fair treatment during the nomination process. We are angry because you stood by and said nothing while sexist, degrading and insulting remarks were made again and again to Senator Clinton and about her. And we are angry because, near the end of the process, you acted directly to undermine our system for electing our nominees by allowing 30 members of a committee to replace THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE with their own flawed judgment and then to STEAL four Michigan delegates that one candidate had earned and give them to the candidate that you had selected.
Indeed, just for running for our party’s nomination, you blamed one candidate--Hillary Clinton--for dividing the party and you tried to force her to drop out of the race by saying publicly that she was only in it to hurt Obama's chances of winning in November and by trying to tell the party’s automatic delegates publicly how they had to vote.
By your actions, you have revealed that you have worked not only to undermine Hillary Clinton’s candidacy, but to undermine our core democratic principles. And so we will work hard to make sure that you will soon no longer be able to call yourselves leaders of the Democratic Party.
In November, we will vote for John McCain and we will vote against every leader of the failed Democratic Party who participated in the corruption of the 2008 nomination process.
Between now and November, we will work hard to make as many Americans as possible join us in rejecting you and the nominee that YOU selected.

Everyone who thinks Reverend Wright's last egomanical ranting appearance on TV was staged raise your hand.
It is just not 'typical' that the old Wright performer came out with yet another rant, that was sure to hurt Obamason, and then just evaporated into thin media-air.
It did however, give Obama the opportunity to come out and appear outraged finally, cause he blew it at the PA. "Wright is Old school" angry-excuse-race-speech where he blamed everyone else for his poor judgement, and Wright's poor-me-life on the stained & flawed nation.
So to try to quiet the repeated video broadcasts of his mentors hatreds towards whites and America, Wright needed to make one last appearance. And dry up and go away - and those ole videos did likewise.
Obama told us: "You can't associate him to me anymore"...(maybe paraphrased) and poof, no more Wright.
Ever since I saw Wesley Clark come out with his 'inartful' McCain comments I thought - humm- this is toooooo wierd.
I mean these people are smarter than that. Yet they keep coming out with dumb statments? Wright- Pflager- Clark -
It's like these people are lining up to volunteer for bus skid marks all over them.
But the beauty of it is that Obama gets "the opportunity" to come out with disassociative comments and patriotic speechs, all the while his opponent gets smeared anyway, and the pawns go quietly on their way.
Who knows what promise for the sacrafice.
Now we have Jesse Jackson whispering on a 'hot mike' that he wants to cut Obama's nuts off for some damnable slight to the black community involving being responsible parents and such - I guess this is a terrible put down in the Jackson camp who wants 'broader issues' from Obama. I assume that means to spread the guilt and or responsibilty more equaly and get off the poor black man's back. And certainly one can't force the Government to pay for programs that aren't in some part the Governments, and someone 'elses', fault. If Money stops coming in people Like the Jacksons have to find actual employment when their blame game coffers dry up.
So, Jackson has an Obama moment- where he doesn't quite agree with what Obama has to say - but he won't quite disown him.
Then we have racist pundits like Sharpton trouted out to remind us we need to remember all the good things Jesse has done...kindah sounds like he got the speech from Obama, on Reverend Wright.
But, to a whole lot of Americans Jesse Jackson represents a militant gadfly and for Obama this was a great centrist, distancing moment.
One in which Obama can pander to the un-Obam-decided caucasian & swing vote when it appears that Obama must not be pandering to the Jackson militant style black voter after all.
You know, the Sharpton style soldiers who couldn't care less if Jackson made a boo-boo, and will still vote Obama anyway.
No love lost.
So who is this phoney rorschach Hollywood production script written for when not for the black voter that won't care a blip or flip about Jackson's blooper, his apology, or Obama's long winded "I'm just a Lonely Boy" apology exceptance?
Well Jackson has helped draw attention to Obama’s “tough love” rhetoric which appeals to many conservative voters who are likely to regard Jackson's antipathy as a plus.
Do we really think there is not Alinsky style war tactics going on here to fool 'the enemy'?
Read up on it- it's classic.
And it is a blatant Obama con game.
Wright quieted the racism chessboard.
Clark worked on the patriotism flack while Obama served up 'artful' 4th of July hot dawgs.
And Jackson? Well he grabbed the undecided non-militant American who wondered if Obama had any balls.
What's next? Who's next?
Maybe Ayers burning a Flag on TV (The US Flag that Obama voted in the Senate that disrespectful America hating rats can burn) and then
Obama can tell us all how he doesn't agree with this Hammas branded 'notion' of burning, but he'll vote for your right to desecrate it just the same.
Afterwards Ayers can explain to us why Mr. Patriotism doesn't have a single American Flag on his website... Oh, we know Flags will appear left, right, and center if Obama ever gets questioned about it - but for now my townHall question is why do we need to keep teaching this 'change' up-con-artist how to appear to be an actual 'historical' America loving Citizen?
I won't be Governed by a racist Communist agenda and let Barack 'change' my country so I wake up each day saying, "this isn't the Flag I used to know".
Obama - Get off the ballot and take all your phoney Bullshit and radical friends back to Chicago with you.
This Land is our land- Not Obamasland.

Does it exist?
The thing is, exist or not, a whole lot of people do believe such a tape exists, because no matter what kind of 'make over' they try to give her, Michell's character exudes from her like a Cynthia McKinney Green scene.
Besides some of Michell's () comments, you get big clues when you read her racist-separtist views in her Princeton thesis.
Watching Michelle this last year I can imagine such a tape could exist. Especially having, reportedly, come out of that Trinty Farrakhan luvin' church where the white mans Christian god must be killed.
What amazes me though, as people wait for some savior to come out of the woodwork with a condemning whitey tape - is how her own husbands afrocentric views and condemnation of 'whitey' is completely ignored. Perhaps it is felt unsaviory character traits will stick to her since absolutely nothing on this planet seems to stick to him. Including his very own words.
In Obama's Book "Dreams from my Father" - an Inheritance of Race
Barack's racial views he tells us in page after boring page everything that some think a Michelle tape would say if it exists.
It is all there in Obama's own words.
For a man who has dual citizenship, both Kenyan and U.S., one has to question where such an unbalanced seekers loyalties lie which such views as Obama has expressed.
One passage that stands out to me in this Obama Kenyan-roots quest says that he was proud that his late Kenyan grandfather had converted to Islam because he saw it as evidence that he was anti-white.
During his visit to Kenya in 1988, Obama was distressed to discover that his grandfather, Onyango, had worked for many years as a domestic servant to British colonialists, and that he had gotten rich by introducing white ways on his farms. As Obama listens to the third wife of his polygamous grandfather tell the old man’s story, he writes (p. 406 of Dreams):
. . . I, too, had felt betrayed.
I had also imagined him an independent man, a man of his people, opposed to white rule. There was no real basis for this image, I now realized—only the letter he had written to Gramps saying that he didn’t want his one son marrying white. That, and his Muslim faith, which in my mind had become linked with the Nation of Islam back in the States. What Granny had told us scrambled that image completely, causing ugly words to flash across my mind. Uncle Tom. Collaborator. House n*****.
*****stars are mine
Obama felt Betrayed.
We know the feeling.
There is so much said in those few sentences that I doubt Michelle could have said it bitter, uh, ah, better.
The lofty image of granpa Onyango being an anti-white Muslim with his racist condemnation of Barack's own white mother marring a black man was a bolstered Plus for Obama's vision of his inheritance. A proud image shattered by his arabican granfather's domestic subserviant "Uncle Tom" collaboration to white mans ways.
This is America's dual-faced post-racial candidate for president.

Denver's Pepsi Center is certainly big enough to hold the Democratic National Convention with a capacity of nearly 21,000.
And those 21,000 who have used their time, money, travel, lodgings, donations and supportive efforts will be waiting there eagerly for this Hustlers exceptance speech.
But Obama has different and much loftier plans.
Apparently the Pepsi Center is just not a big enough theater for Obama's giant Mile High ego.
"On Thursday, August 28th, he's scheduled to formally accept the Democratic nomination in a speech at the convention hall in front of the assembled delegates.
" I wanted you to be the first to hear the news," campaign manager David Plouffe wrote in an e-mail to Obama's millions of contributors. "...Barack has made it clear that this is your convention, not his."
SO- "Instead, Barack will leave the convention hall and join more than 75,000 people for a huge, free, open-air event where he will deliver his acceptance speech to the American people."...
All this to take place at the nearby Invesco Field sports stadium; they are selling (legal?) Lottobama tickets too, for 5 bucks - where 10, yes TEN, of you raffeled Olucky-bama-ones get an all expense trip to the show!! Hurry while the supply lasts! And, Huston don't forget to bring those Che Flags for that Obama WAVE.
This move shows more than a mere crowning arrogance - what it actually portrays in advance is a signal that there certainly won't be any chance of an embarrassing 'upset' - I think it means absolutely NO roll call at the Convention.
Or if there is one somehow- he gets to slip out with the News coverage following him.
Wouldn't want any dissention to be seen.
Although the convention's host committee reported it was nearly $12 million short of the $40.6 million it had pledged to raise for the effort, the Host committee members spoke openly of needing the Obama campaign's help to close the gap.
Gee Dean, didn't you get the checks?
How much more than $12 mil do you need to pay for Obama's newest "Yes I yam," venue?
I'll be happy to print you out another check.
Why don't you take that $12 million-Plus it's gona cost, or the 500 million wasted on this 'historical' pre-post-racist BHO Farce you have selected, and use it somewhere it can do some actual good- like to Darfur, or New Orleans?
Obama people's biggest fear seems to be that it may rain.
In August? Rain on the parade?
Well, it'd certainly be a chance to see Barack walk on water, I suppose.
You might think that the Obam's would be more concerned about respect and gratitude rather than rain, but still, Obama is not going to Denver to thank the delegates and perhaps as many as 21,000 supporters waiting for him at the Pepsi Center Convention hall.
No, he's not going to give an eloquent wordsmithed exceptance speech to those in waiting either.
Instead he will leave them behind and travel to His Grander Coliseum, at Invesco Field, to be Coronated by the much larger crowd he invisions chanting his coming.
I presume the 'new party' will watch all of this adoration unfold on a Big Screed Screen, while sippin' some sweety-free Kool-aid.
For anyone offended by this "see yah!" affront, remember Obama probably, at some date or another, has consistently said,...You too will, 'get over it'.
There you go people... 21,000 more under dah bus...but it's, "all about you - and not him"
