Good News For Obama’s Staff —

December 14, 2008

Vice president-elect Joe Biden is “laying plans to significantly shrink” his role in Barack Obama’s White House.

For all his gaffes and blunders and indecisions — this may very well be the best decision Joe Biden has ever made.

Read more here.

In essence — likely the most inept, least credible and least qualified holder of an office a heartbeat away from the most powerful position in the world has been relegated to a gazebo near the President-elect’s new basketball court somewhere on the White House grounds.

The fact that Biden has recently purchased a puppy should in no way be interpreted as an attempt to upstage the president-elect’s decision to purchase a puppy for his daughters. 

 Meanwhile — from the “say it ain’t so, Joe” department:

Check comments section under the Biden-puppy link: Did Biden buy his new pup from a puppy-mill breeder?   

Did Biden pay cash or use a credit card provided by his most ardent financial contributor-base?  

And finally — could the pup’s papers be legitimate or (gasp) plagiarized???

Obama and his hoax on America II 1/2

October 28, 2008

Amazing. 

By now everyone has surely seen Biden’s blow up during an interview with Florida WFTV news anchor Barbara West:  (multiple copies have been removed from YouTube — see it while you can!)

[Youtube=http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=jxT0ELP7az0]

Here’s her interview with John McCain today.

Now watch her interview with Bill O’Reilly tonight:

Even though the Obama campaign has refused to “give” Ms. West or her station any further interviews, I hardly think she will be out of a job anytime soon …..  Check out her resume.

Oh.  And as expected, libtards and the loonie-left are already attacking Ms. West.   Do we expect anything less?

Let’s see ….. Obama’s minions have now gone after anyone who dares to extend anything BUT softball questions and supportive talking points:  Hillary Clinton ….. Sarah Palin …. Joe the Plumber …. Barbara West …. next?

Biden Warning: Orchestrated Crisis?

October 21, 2008

Amid a flurry of loosely connected warnings, Joe Biden warned contributors yesterday to “gird their loins” …..  

“Mark my words,” the Democratic vice presidential nominee warned at the second of his two Seattle fundraisers Sunday. “It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy. The world is looking. We’re about to elect a brilliant 47-year-old senator president of the United States of America. Remember I said it standing here if you don’t remember anything else I said. Watch, we’re gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy.”

“I can give you at least four or five scenarios from where it might originate,” Biden said to Emerald City supporters, mentioning the Middle East and Russia as possibilities. “And he’s gonna need help. And the kind of help he’s gonna need is, he’s gonna need you – not financially to help him – we’re gonna need you to use your influence, your influence within the community, to stand with him. Because it’s not gonna be apparent initially, it’s not gonna be apparent that we’re right.”

Not only will the next administration have to deal with foreign affairs issues, Biden warned, but also with the current economic crisis.

“Gird your loins,” Biden told the crowd. “We’re gonna win with your help, God willing, we’re gonna win, but this is not gonna be an easy ride. This president, the next president, is gonna be left with the most significant task. It’s like cleaning the Augean stables, man. This is more than just, this is more than – think about it, literally, think about it – this is more than just a capital crisis, this is more than just markets. This is a systemic problem we have with this economy.”

The Delaware lawmaker managed to rake in an estimated $1 million total from his two money hauls at the downtown Sheraton, the same hotel where four years ago Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., clinched the Democratic nomination. Despite warning about the difficulties the next administration will face, Biden said the Democratic ticket is equipped to meet the challenges head on.

“I’ve forgotten more about foreign policy than most of my colleagues know, so I’m not being falsely humble with you. I think I can be value added, but this guy has it,” the Senate Foreign Relations chairman said of Obama. “This guy has it. But he’s gonna need your help. Because I promise you, you all are gonna be sitting here a year from now going, ‘Oh my God, why are they there in the polls? Why is the polling so down? Why is this thing so tough?’ We’re gonna have to make some incredibly tough decisions in the first two years. So I’m asking you now, I’m asking you now, be prepared to stick with us. Remember the faith you had at this point because you’re going to have to reinforce us.”

“There are gonna be a lot of you who want to go, ‘Whoa, wait a minute, yo, whoa, whoa, I don’t know about that decision’,” Biden continued. “Because if you think the decision is sound when they’re made, which I believe you will when they’re made, they’re not likely to be as popular as they are sound. Because if they’re popular, they’re probably not sound.”

Biden emphasized that the mountainous Afghanistan-Pakistan border is of particular concern, with Osama bin Laden “alive and well” and Pakistan “bristling with nuclear weapons.”

“You literally can see what these kids are up against, our kids in that region,” Biden said in recalling when his helicopter was forced down due to a snowstorm there. “The place is crawling with al Qaeda. And it’s real.”

“We do not have the military capacity, nor have we ever, quite frankly, in the last 20 years, to dictate outcomes,” he cautioned. “It’s so much more important than that. It’s so much more complicated than that. And Barack gets it.”

After speaking for just over a quarter of an hour, Biden noticed the media presence in the back of the small ballroom.

“I probably shouldn’t have said all this because it dawned on me that the press is here,” he joked.

“All kidding aside, these guys have left us in a God-awful place,” he then said of the Bush regime, promptly wrapping up his remarks. “We have the ability to straighten it out. It’s gonna take a little bit of time, so I ask you to stay with us. Stay with us.”

Methinks ole Joe’s either been reading too many classified intelligence reports (Iran vs. Israel, Pakistan vs. Al Quaeda or the Taliban, Venezuela gets Russian nukes, etc.) or Obama’s been teaching Joe the strategies of orchestrated crisis  …. Horowitz describes it as

The strategy of forcing political change through orchestrated crisis. The “Cloward-Piven Strategy” seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse.

And yes — the principles are right out of Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals — the very techniques Obama taught as a community organizer and to ACORN activists in Chicago.

Warnings and orchestrated crisis aside — Joe Biden may have just given more Americans a reason to vote for John McCain.

Obama: Socializing America — one “idiot” at a time

October 5, 2008

Rather than being the tip of the iceberg, a well-bankrolled underground movement began more than four years ago when George Soros — via his hatred of George Bush and conservatism — funded a plethora of radical, activist groups to garner the vote of the “idiot” classes (their words — not mine) in America:  “minorities, drop outs and GED’s.”  

And now Soros’ Democracy Alliance has a prime candidate to bear his mantle of socialism:  Barack Obama — the consummate “community organizer” who personally trained and provided legal counsel to the minions (ACORN) who forge the swords of class warfare, dissent and the destruction of the American economic base — who has more than his “fair share” of questionable associations,  stealth with anti-American and socialist underground movements and “mysterious” domestic and foreign campaign donations

Obama Formerly Represented ACORN, Taught Classes For Future Leaders Of ACORN, And They Endorsed His 2008 Presidential Campaign:
Obama Directed Project Vote And Later Taught Classes For “Future Leaders Identified By ACORN And The Centers For New Horizons.” “He [Obama] says he is drawn to politics, despite its superficialities, as a means to advance his real passion and calling: community organization. … In 1992 Obama took time off to direct Project Vote, the most successful grass-roots voter- registration campaign in recent city history. Credited with helping elect Carol Moseley-Braun to the U.S. Senate, the registration drive, aimed primarily at African-Americans, added an estimated 125,000 voters to the voter rolls — even more than were registered during Harold Washington’s mayoral campaigns. ‘It’s a power thing,’ said the brochures and radio commercials. … Obama continues his organizing work largely through classes for future leaders identified by ACORN and the Centers for New Horizons on the south side.” (Hank De Zutter, Op-Ed, “What Makes Obama Run?” ChicagoReader, 12/8/95)
Obama Was Part Of Team Of Lawyers Who Represented ACORN In A Suit Against The State Of Illinois. “Obama was part of a team of attorneys who represented the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) in a lawsuit against the state of Illinois in 1995 for failing to implement a federal law designed to make it easier for the poor and others to register as voters.” (Mike Robinson, “Obama Got Start In Civil Rights Practice,” The Associated Press, 2/20/07)
ACORN’s Political Action Committee Endorsed Obama. “[A]CORN’s political action committee endorsed Barack Obama for President. … The endorsement reflects a belief that Obama — who worked as a community organizer on the South Side of Chicago — understands that change must come from the ground-up, as part of a working coalition, rather than from position papers.” (Katrina Vanden Heuvel, Op-Ed, “ACORN: Obama Gets It,” The Nation, 2/23/08)
Obama’s Campaign Paid Over $800,000 To ACORN For Get-Out-The-Vote Efforts, But “Mistakenly Misrepresented” Their Work To The FEC:
Obama’s Campaign “Paid More Than $800,000” To ACORN For Get-Out-The Vote Efforts; The Campaign Originally “Misrepresented” The Group’s Work To The FEC. “U.S. Sen. Barack Obama’s presidential campaign paid more than $800,000 to an offshoot of the liberal Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now for services the Democrat’s campaign says it mistakenly misrepresented in federal reports. An Obama spokesman said Federal Election Commission reports would be amended to show Citizens Services Inc. — a subsidiary of ACORN — worked in ‘get-out-the-vote’ projects, instead of activities such as polling, advance work and staging major events as stated in FEC finance reports filed during the primary.” (David M. Brown, “Obama To Amend Report On $800,000 In Spending,” Pittsburgh Tribune Review, 8/22/08)
While Serving On The Board Of Directors Of The Woods Fund, ACORN Received Thousands Of Dollars Of Grants From The Organization:
The Chicago ACORN Received Grants Of $45,000 (2000), $30,000 (2001), $45,000 (2001), $30,000 (2002), And $40,000 (2002) From The Woods Fund. (Donors Forum Website, ifs.donorsforum.org, Accessed 6/10/08)  — MarketWatch

There are those who want to “blame Bush” and subsequently, Republicans, but the reality is, George Bush attempted to rein in housing horses, but was repelled by Democrats (as was John McCain on two separate occasions).   President Clinton aptly pointed this out last week:

PRESIDENT BILL CLINTON: “I think the responsibility that the Democrats have may rest more in resisting any efforts by Republicans in the Congress or by me when I was President to put some standards and tighten up a little on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.”

It’s not that we weren’t forewarned about the dangers of government-subsidized mortgages

And the road to this financial hell has not been paved with good intentions ….

Take, for example, Barack Obama’s ACORN group, rift with its intimidation tactics against the lending industry, the middle class and its abuse of election law and fraud in voter registration.  Enter their targets, the “idiots” who are locked at the bottom of the socialist caste system: the “minorities, drop outs, GED’s.” 

ACORN was the leader in “protesting” social agencies and later intimidating banks:

ACORN is a group of community organizers, probably the most militant group of community organizers. ACORN grew out of something called the National Welfare Rights League which was another militant group in the Sixties. They used to flood into welfare offices, kind of shut them down with protests and demand a great expansion of welfare coverage. And in recent decades that has morphed into ACORN. And ACORN leaders see themselves as unreconstructed far leftist, unafraid to use radical and militant tactics. They follow Saul Alinsky’s direct action, which is another name for these intimidation tactics.

For example, if ACORN wants a bank to start making these high-risk loans, they might break into the office of a banker and flood it with protestors and basically scare the heck out of the guy trying to get him to change the bank’s loan policy. They will even go and protest at the homes of bankers, scare their families. They’ll flood protestors into the lobby of a bank, scare the customers away and, of course, in that way intimidate the banks into doing what they want. And so ACORN uses these Alinsky-ite intimidation tactics. Of course, those are tactics that were studied by Obama, and Obama has had a very close relationship with ACORN for many, many years.

….

Back in the late Eighties when Obama was doing his initial organizing work in Chicago, well, he worked for another group called the developing communities project which was part of the Gamma Leo Foundation, which is yet another radical Alinsky-ite group which used very similar tactics and also deployed them against banks. But in the course of his work for that group, he ran into a woman named Madeline Talbott. Madeline Talbott at that time was a high official of ACORN and eventually became the head of Chicago ACORN, and Madeline Talbott had first viewed Obama as sort of a competitor from another community organizer group, but as she got to know him, she became impressed. She saw him as a partner and she invited him to train her personal staff. So then Obama went away, went to law school and he came back from law school to Chicago. And at that time Talbott remembered him, remembered the good work he had done training her staff and that is why ACORN approached Obama to start doing some of its legal work. Not only the case you were mentioning but the work for ACORN on the motor voter bill that Obama did and —

… an ACORN organizer put out an article in a journal called Social Policy. Her name was Tony Foulkes. And she — the whole article described how ACORN was able to register voters and get them to the polls to elect Barack Obama as state senator and then senator, but she had to frame the whole article very carefully because technically that would all be illegal. ACORN’s not supposed to be supporting any particular politician and, in fact, it’s very shaky because when Obama was on some of these foundation boards, he was channeling money to ACORN. So it would have been quite illegal for ACORN to become his precinct workers. So they pretend they are acting as individuals rather than as representatives of ACORN. But what you have here is kind of very shady nexus that even if it ends up being just the edge of what’s legal verges on conflict of interest for Obama when he was on his foundation boards channeling money to ACORN which would then go out and register voters that they thought would vote for Obama, pass out literature.

Take, as another example, the men (and women) who currently advise Obama — Frank Raines and Jim Johnson — who cooked the books and walked away with millions of dollars as CEO’s of federally subsidized Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae agencies.

And take, as a third example, the Congressional perps, Chris Dodd, Barney Frank, Barack Obama, et al, who accepted money from both Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae and affiliates — then turned their collective heads when others questioned the oversight of federal housing agencies. 

The fourth example includes our supposedly objective media.  Their latest whitewash for Obama is this scamp about his “non-relationship” with terrorist Bill Ayers — an anonymously collected “recall” to refute this documented article from the Wall Street Journal. 

The debacle we now face is frequently defined as beginning in the 1990’s with Carter’s Community Re-Investment Act, which expanded affirmative action housing and under Clinton, who enacted an easing of credit markets to further promote home-ownership among lower-income Americans …..

In a move that could help increase home ownership rates among minorities and low-income consumers, the Fannie Mae Corporation is easing the credit requirements on loans that it will purchase from banks and other lenders.

The action, which will begin as a pilot program involving 24 banks in 15 markets — including the New York metropolitan region — will encourage those banks to extend home mortgages to individuals whose credit is generally not good enough to qualify for conventional loans. Fannie Mae officials say they hope to make it a nationwide program by next spring.

Biden addressed the authority of Bankruptcy courts to adjust interest rates and principal owed on homes:  -“Number two, with regard to bankruptcy now, Gwen, what we should be doing now — and Barack Obama and I support it — we should be allowing bankruptcy courts to be able to re-adjust not just the interest rate you’re paying on your mortgage to be able to stay in your home, but be able to adjust the principal that you owe, the principal that you owe.”

Tip of the iceberg indeed …. one “idiot” at a time ….

Obama’s autobiography contains the initial hints of his socialist leanings, as he describes the Dreams from My Father …. Obama wants to almost double the capital gains tax.  He wants to strip the FICA tax cap off every worker making more than $97,500. He wants to increase the dividend tax. He wants to let the Bush tax cuts expire – giving almost every American family an automatic tax increase.  And there is more to illustrate Obama’s socialist leanings ….  Obama’s One World philosophy ….

In spite of our nation’s current financial debacle, Obama has called for more than $800 billion in new spending programs.  In addition, he has projected additional programs to be administered by the U.N. using taxpayer monies for a Global Poverty Fund,  Global Climate Fund and Global Economic Development funds …. He backed driver’s licenses for illegal aliens – even though such a move would allow potential terrorists to move freely inside the United States.  He has defined himself (without evidence) as an initiator and leader in every facet of global affairs and national security … from running Hezbollah out of Lebanon to invading Pakistan to find Bin Laden to being the first to suggest a troop surge in a war he does not support.

…. one “idiot” at a time ….

He is one of the most outspoken pro-abortion candidate in the history of the country. Two of his closest pro-abortion allies are Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi — both Catholics — whose stances have prompted a Vatican office to label the Democrat party as “the party of death.”   In 2001, as a state legislator in Illinois, he opposed a bill to protect-live born children.  He was the only Illinois senator to speak against the bill opposing infanticide.

He opposes gun rights. He has long history, beginning as a state legislator, of trying to deny ordinary citizens access to guns — even within their homes.  He originally backed Washington D.C.’s total ban on private handguns – a ban he knew would be overturned. The NRA rated him an “F” on gun positions and says he is one of the most dangerous anti-gun politicians in the nation.

Though he has never released his college transcripts or identified the source of his (non)scholarship funds (which Michelle stated were only “recently repaid” — though not reported on their income tax declarations), Obama is a Harvard-educated elitist, considered by a recent British envoy as “aloof and insensitive.”   To Obama, we Americans are simply “bitter” — he has mocked us saying “[they] cling to their guns and their religion.”  

if Barack Obama were to be elected, all “idiot” Americans might consider replacing that “chicken in every pot” mantra with an “idiot’s delight” nut-dependent ACORN diet ….  one “idiot” at a time ….

And this is one “idiot” who is mad as hell.
