Rev. Manning of Harlem webcast – He gets it: Obama an illegal alien. Excellent presentation!

FPeeper “seekthetruth” had this url of NICE LITTLE WEBCAST in comment early in thread under another title I can’t find now and its getting late and this definitely deserves its own thread:

My comment: Nov 25 08 webcast ‘Rev Manning is VERY much up on this! He is doing it without notes! He’s emphasizing all right points- ESPECIALLY the 81 Pakistan trip. I’d change a few things but he’s got it pretty well down.

Thanx so for the link/post seekthetruth- 1st time I’ve encountered the man and his disposition is VERY good. His plea: Why are you doing this America? …said numerous times in EXCELLENT voice, temper, cadence, you name it. BARACK OBAMA IS AN ILLEGAL ALIEN AND THE 1981 TRIP TO PAKISTAN WAS IMPOSSIBLE (I add for anyone NEAR being a regular US citizen-just to make Farah and WND happy as per their Aug 23 disclaimer they seem to have shed without acknowledgement-do correct me if I’m wrong, as alaways ) UNLESS IT WAS WITH INDONESIAN PASSPORT. I do think Manning mis-speaks in that he says there is utter & irrefutable proof of it that I’ve seen from semi-serious looks at Berg’s matter. I don’t see matter as presentable with verifyable chain of custody now, or else it’d be produced w/ scan into website. I’d have to listen again but think this is only mistake he makes to my mind. Prior to this, he properly “builds the case” as he notes generally accepted (by COLB-chasers, and he even cites the thin paper required for the 2007 laser copy per the Polarik finding) scenarios but he dismisses them without stating their bearing (and leaves open they on their own merits could condemn). But he and I agree on the real damning crux: dual citizenship in Indonesia and acknowledgement of such by time he was already well legally an adult, which is what he emphasizes in his later short presentation.

What CAN be said on the 1981 Pakistan trip is that there can be no other conclusion, and thus IS an utter and irrefutable conclusion. Doubling this condemnation is the Selective Service registration card forgery (clear failure to register at required time) , and say you get another half point on the blockage of college entry admission records to Occidental College, and another two quarters total for same for Columbia and Harvard. Its TRIPLY sure IMHO. All the excuses go away ( he was just a kid…, Soetoro adoption + /or marriage +/ or divorce not traceable in US…, everyone in that Pacific Rim (before we called it that) world at the murky time who had any cash and was sufficiently cavalier could find and hold old passport…., student taken with fancies into bad ideas as so many then…, didn’t know he had to re-patriate in civilly acceptable manner-between 18-21 per then-applicable law – per Berg…, ).

He quite simply deliberately and maliciously did not remand his Indonesian status and renewed at five year intervals (his 15th year at least- I’m using Manning here, just not up on this one) the Indonesian passport.

Its as correct as saying a man was shot by another in an enclosed room at a time when police (who had been called by witnesses who remained at the scene) were present and were surrounding the place, all hearing the eventual survivor threatening the eventual victim. They all hear the shot and police enter to see the gun and a dead man on the floor, powder burns on the standing shooter’s hands, bloodspatter being utterly and irrefutably consistent with shooter as standing and victim as lying dead.

What a stinking dirtball Barack Obama is. A snake. “Office of the President Elect”. A stinking, putrid, slimy joke.

This Harlem minister does so very well in temper I can’t compliment him enough.

Just wish he’d drop the re-naming of Harlem as “Atlah”, no matter where he got it. Keep it for the website if you want, Rev. You’ve done a great job here!

OBAMA WANTS TO KNOW THE FOLLOWING

Obama Appointee Questionnaire Demands Info on Individual and ‘Immediate Family’ Gun Ownership

By Tom Blumer
November 23, 2008 – 11:27 ET

It may not be an automatic disqualifier for an Obama administration appointment, as Ed Morrissey at Hot Air suggested on Friday, but it’s certainly an affront to the personal privacy rights of individuals and families.

The Politico reported Thursday evening about the fallout resulting from an intrusive question on the president-elect’s 63-question personnel form:

President-elect Barack Obama’s transition team is asking potential appointees detailed questions about gun ownership, and firearms advocates aren’t happy about it.

The National Rifle Association has denounced the move, which has already led one Republican senator to consider legislation aimed at ensuring a president can’t use an applicant’s gun ownership status to deny employment.

….. Tucked in at the end of the questionnaire and listed under “Miscellaneous,” it reads: “Do you or any members of your immediate family own a gun? If so, provide complete ownership and registration information. Has the registration ever lapsed? Please also describe how and by whom it is used and whether it has been the cause of any personal injuries or property damage.”

Paul Light, professor of public service at New York University, said there was no such question for potential appointees when President George W. Bush took office in 2000.

“It kind of sticks out there like a sore thumb,” Light said.

The question especially “sticks out” because:

* It’s hard to see how guns owned by other members of your immediate family — which would appear to include, for example, brothers, sisters, and parents not living with the applicant — are any of Team Obama’s bleeping business.

* Notwithstanding how he finessed the Supreme Court’s 5-4 Heller decision affirming the obvious — that the 2nd Amendment supports an individual’s God-given right to self-defense, including the right to own and carry firearms — Obama has a long record of aggressively opposing the individual right to keep and bear arms.

Here are some of the specifics from the irrefutable and overwhelming history of Obama’s career-long, dedicated, and persistent antagonism to individual gun rights (I originally covered this in late October at BizzyBlog when evaluating one individual’s congressional candidacy; bolds are mine):

* Obama voted to allow reckless lawsuits designed to bankrupt the firearms industry.
* Barack Obama wants to re-impose the failed and discredited Clinton Gun Ban.
* He voted to ban almost all rifle ammunition commonly used for hunting and sport shooting.
* He has endorsed a complete ban on handgun ownership.
* Obama also supports local gun bans in Chicago and other cities.
* Obama voted to uphold local gun bans and the criminal prosecution of people who use firearms in self-defense.
* Obama opposes Right to Carry laws.
* Obama supported a proposal to ban gun stores within 5 miles of a school or park, which would eliminate almost every gun store in America.
* Obama favors a ban on standard capacity magazines.
* Obama supports mandatory micro-stamping, one-gun-a-month sales restrictions, a ban on inexpensive handguns, gun owner licensing and gun registration, and mandatory waiting periods.
* Obama supports a ban on the resale of police issued firearms, even if the money is going to police departments for replacement equipment.

On top of all that, Obama was a director at an organization that worked mightily to make the Heller decision go the wrong way. They almost succeeded.

Obama was a member of the Board of Directors of the Joyce Foundation, the leading source of funds for anti-gun organizations and “research.”

A Pajamas Media column by David T. Hardy in early October revealed that the Foundation engaged in the law-review equivalent of push-polling:

The plan’s objective was bold: the judicial obliteration of the Second Amendment.

Joyce’s directors found a vulnerable point. When judges cannot rely upon past decisions, they sometimes turn to law review articles. Law reviews are impartial, and famed for meticulous cite-checking. They are also produced on a shoestring. Authors of articles receive no compensation; editors are law students who work for a tiny stipend.

In 1999, midway through Obama’s tenure, the Joyce board voted to grant the Chicago-Kent Law Review $84,000, a staggering sum by law review standards. The Review promptly published an issue in which all articles attacked the individual right view of the Second Amendment.

(The Review) solicited only articles hostile to the individual right view of the Second Amendment. ….. Joyce had bought a veto power over the review’s content.

….. The plan worked smoothly. One court, in the course of ruling that there was no individual right to arms, cited the Chicago-Kent articles eight times.

….. The Joyce Foundation board (which still included Obama) ….. expand(ed) its attack on the Second Amendment. Its next move came when Ohio State University announced it was establishing the “Second Amendment Research Center” as a thinktank headed by anti-individual-right historian Saul Cornell. Joyce put up no less than $400,000 to bankroll its creation.

….. The Center proceeded to generate articles denying the individual right to arms.

….. The Joyce directorate’s plan almost succeeded. The individual rights view won out in the Heller Supreme Court appeal, but only by 5-4. The four dissenters were persuaded in part by Joyce-funded writings, down to relying on an article which misled them on critical historical documents.

This outrageous, manipulative history is yet another example of how the national media whitewashed Barack Obama’s record during his nearly two-year campaign for the presidency. Though several outlets have done stories on the length of the questionnaire, few if any have noted the gun ownership-related question.

Whether or not being forced into acknowledging gun ownership as a condition of employment affects one’s chances of a getting a job with the Obama administration, it would seem to signal a high chance of receiving unfair treatment if a co-worker or supervisor hostile to the Second Amendment concludes during your term of employment that they don’t want you around any more.

ANARCHY IN AMERICA

November 21, 2008

ANARCHY HAS COME

By Coach Dave Daubenmire

November 20, 2008
NewsWithViews.com

President Bush reportedly said that the Constitution was “just a G—D—n piece of paper.” It is hard to believe that the report is true, but you would have to admit that recent happenings in this once-great Constitutional Republic reflect the opinions of many in power in the nation’s capital.

Despite what you might hear on the news, or out of the mouth of our elected officials, America is not a Democracy. In fact, according to our Founders, a democracy was the worst form of all governments. Listen to what some wise men have said.

Ben Franklin said “Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. When the people find they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic.”

“The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.” Winston Churchill

“Democracy is the road to socialism.” Karl Marx

According to Webster’s unabridged Dictionary, a republic is “A form of government in which supreme power resides in a body of citizens entitled to vote and is exercised by elected officers and representatives responsible to them and governing according to law.”

I don’t have the time or the space to go over it for you. Please just read this commentary that I wrote two-years ago if you need it explained further.

Socialism is coming at us faster than a locomotive and we can’t even hear the train whistle. If we don’t rise up soon and DEMAND that government stay within the restrictions that the Founders put in place we will never pass to the next generation the “blessings of liberty” that our fathers passed to us.

The Constitution is the supreme law of the land. Without it, America is a lawless nation and those in power are the boldest criminals.

Please remember this; we have no Constitutional Rights, we have God-granted rights. The purpose of the Constitution was to restrain government. The Bill of Rights should actually be called the Bill of Government Limitations. Individual citizens cannot violate the Constitution. Only governments can.

I am doing my best to write this commentary without my usual hyperbole. As Joe Friday would say, “Just the facts.”

Our ‘elected officials” swear an oath to uphold the Constitution. None of them do and we let them get away with it. The Courts are the worst. The “domestic enemies” use the courts to subvert this nation and hardly a peep is heard as judges arbitrarily rewrite the Constitution. Marbury v Madison was the source of the decree that “All laws which are repugnant to the Constitution are null and void.” Marbury vs. Madison 5 US (2 Cranch) 137, 174, 176, (1803).

We must reclaim the Constitution if the Republic is to be saved. Look at how far we have fallen.

Amendment I
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

Most of these freedoms are under assault as courts determine when and where they can be exercised. The fairness doctrine, public prayer, freedom of assembly, and hate speech legislation are all eviscerating the restraints on government.

Amendment II
A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

The new administration promises “change”. Those who are awake know that one of those changes will be government restriction on the God-given right to own guns. That’s why gun sales are through the roof with the election of Obama.

Amendment III
No soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law.

American soldiers are never to be used against the citizenry. It is call Posse Comitatus which has been suspended by “Executive Order.” The 3rd Infantry is now active on American soil. Of course, they are here to help in “emergencies.”

Amendment IV

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Can you say unwarranted wiretaps in the name of security, thanks to the Patriot Act? Under this “un-Constitutional law” a person can now be detained without cause. Habeaus Corpus is gone.

Amendment V
No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a grand jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the militia, when in actual service in time of war or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.

Ditto. See Patriot Act above

Amendment VI
In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the state and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the assistance of counsel for his defense.

See Habeas corpus above.

Need I go on?

So the voters in California determined that marriage shall remain a union between a man and a woman and the anarchists hit the streets. They invade churches, and appeal to the courts to overturn the will of the people.

Anarchy is defined as a state of lawlessness or political disorder due to the absence of governmental authority.

Lawless is abounding in America. Bankers openly steal from the people, government hands out money in violation of their oath, voter fraud runs rampant, and our new president may not even be eligible for the office.

America’s Constitution is a “living breathing document” because God’s Word is no longer the rock upon which all law stands. Remove God and you remove His laws. Remove His laws and you remove the pillars. The non-constitutional separation between the church and the state has removed the foundation of all moral law.

If God is gone, then government is god. “In those days there was no king in Israel, but every man did that which was right in his own eyes.”

“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” John Adams.

“We have staked the whole future of American civilization, not upon the power of government, far from it. We’ve staked the future of all our political institutions upon our capacity…to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God.” [1778 to the General Assembly of the State of Virginia] James Madison.


Anarchy has come to America.

The First Time I
Heard Of Barack

By Tom Fife
11-20-8

During the period of roughly February 1992 to mid 1994, I was making frequent trips to Moscow, Russia, in the process of starting a software development joint-venture company with some people from the Russian scientific community. One of the men in charge on the Russian side was named V. M.; he had a wife named T.M.

V. was a level-headed scientist while his wife was rather deeply committed to the losing Communist cause – a cause she obviously was not abandoning.

One evening, during a trip early in 1992, the American half of our venture were invited to V. & T.’s Moscow flat as we were about to return to the States. The party went well and we had the normal dinner discussions.

As the evening wore on, T. developed a decidedly rough anti-American edge – one her husband tried to quietly rein in.

The bottom line of the tirade she started against the United States went something like this:

“You Americans always like to think that you have the perfect government and your people are always so perfect. Well then, why haven’t you had a woman president by now? You had a chance to vote for a woman vice-president and you didn’t do it.”

The general response went something along the lines that you don’t vote for someone just because of their sex. Besides, you don’t vote for vice-president, but the president and vice-president as a ticket.

“Well, I think you are going to be surprised when you get a black president very soon.”

The consensus we expressed was that we didn’t think there was anything innately barring that. The right person at the right time and sure, America would try to vote for the right person, be he or she black or not.

“What if I told you that you will have a black president very soon and he will be a Communist?”

The out-of-the-blue remark was met by our stares. She continued, “Well, you will; and he will be a Communist.”

It was then that the husband unsuccessfully tried to change the subject; but she was on a roll and would have nothing of it. One of us asked, “It sounds like you know something we don’t know.”

“Yes, it is true. This is not some idle talk. He is already born and he is educated and being groomed to be president right now. You will be impressed to know that he has gone to the best schools of Presidents. He is what you call “Ivy League”. You don’t believe me, but he is real and I even know his name. His name is Barack. His mother is white and American and his father is black from Africa. That’s right, a chocolate baby! And he’s going to be your President.”

She became more and more smug as she presented her stream of detailed knowledge and predictions so matter-of-factly – as though all were foregone conclusions. “It’s all been thought out. His father is not an American black so he won’t have that social slave stigma. He is intelligent and he is half white and has been raised from the cradle to be an atheist and a Communist. He’s gone to the finest schools. He is being guided every step of the way and he will be irresistible to America.”

We sat there not knowing what to say. She was obviously very happy that the Communists were doing this and that it would somehow be a thumbing of their collective noses at America: they would give us a black president and he’d be a Communist to boot. She made it quite obvious that she thought that this was going to breathe new life into world Communism. From this and other conversations with her, she always asserted that Communism was far from dead.

She was full of little details about him that she was eager to relate. I thought that maybe she was trying to show off that this truly was a real person and not just hot air.

She rattled off a complete litany. He was from Hawaii. He went to school in California. He lived in Chicago. He was soon to be elected to the legislature. “Have no doubt: he is one of us, a Soviet.”

At one point, she related some sort of San Francisco connection, but I didn’t understand what the point was and don’t recall much about that. I was just left with the notion that she considered the city to be some sort of a center for their activity here.

Since I had dabbled in languages, I knew a smattering of Arabic. I made a comment: “If I remember correctly, ‘Barack’ comes from the Arabic word for ‘Blessing.’ That seems to be an odd name for an American.” She replied quickly, “Yes. It is ‘African'”, she insisted, “and he will be a blessing for world Communism. We will regain our strength and become the number one power in the world.”

She continued with something to the effect that America was at the same time the great hope and the great obstacle for Communism. America would have to be converted to Communism and Barack was going to pave the way.

So, what does this conversation from 1992 prove?

Well, it’s definitely anecdotal. It doesn’t prove that Obama has had Soviet Communist training nor that he was groomed to be the first black American president, but it does show one thing that I think is very important. It shows that Soviet Russian Communists knew of Barack from a very early date. It also shows that they truly believed among themselves that he was raised and groomed Communist to pave the way for their future. This report on Barack came personally to me from one of them long before America knew he existed.

Although I had never before heard of him, at the time of this conversation Obama was 30+ years old and was obviously tested enough that he was their anticipated rising star.

THE END OF AMERICA AS WE KNOW IT

November 18, 2008

How This Recession Could Change the World

November 18, 2008 | From theTrumpet.com

The falling price of oil, China’s stimulus plan, and a developing U.S. bond market massacre. Say goodbye to America’s high standard of living.

Robert Morley


Your gas tank has probably noticed the return to lower prices. It is easier to keep it full at only $2.50 a gallon. That is a welcomed respite: More money in your pocket, more frequent trips to the grocery store, less guilt about driving the family suv.

That’s great. But did you know that lower oil prices may set events in motion that will have a much bigger impact on your wallet than a few dollars off at the tank? There is an unexpected side effect of today’s breathe-easier gas prices—and it is a big one.

As expensive as $147-per-barrel oil was for consumers, and as bad as that was for the economy in general, believe it or not, it was a bit of a blessing for the U.S. government. As U.S. consumers sent hundreds of billions of dollars to oil exporters such as Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Nigeria and others, these countries recycled large portions of those dollars into the United States by lending them to the federal government. They did this by purchasing U.S. treasuries and other U.S. agency debt, such as Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac bonds.

This oil-dollar recycling had one huge short-term benefit for Americans: It helped keep interest rates low. The government had no need to raise interest rates to attract lenders since oil exporters (as well as Asian manufacturers) provided an ample supply of credit to the U.S. government. The willingness and ability of foreigners to lend is incredibly important to America, since the U.S. is the world’s largest borrower. In each of the past two years, Washington borrowed about $550 billion from foreigners.

Low interest rates have been the foundation of America’s economic model. This model—also known as the “borrow and spend model”—has fueled America’s economic growth as the nation has transformed from a manufacturing to a service-oriented, consumer economy.

Low interest rates help boost consumer spending, corporate expansion, mergers and acquisitions, new businesses start-ups, construction, exploration, and research and development—over the short term. In general terms: the lower the interest rate, the greater the quantity of money available for people and businesses.

And America is hooked on cheap credit. If you look at a graph of interest rates, you will find that over recent years, when America attempts to raise rates, it has the effect of sending the economy into a tailspin. That is why the economy is now often called a bubble economy. If you raise the rates—reduce people’s ability to borrow—you pop the bubble.

However, now that oil prices have plunged 62 percent from their highs, there is a whole lot less oil money around to lend to Washington. That could have serious implications for interest rates in the U.S. According to the Treasury Department, oil-exporting nations as a group hold about $180 billion in Treasury debt, making them the third-largest holders, as of August. However, oil exporters probably hold hundreds of billions more worth of Treasury debt, since Caribbean Banking Centers, Luxembourg, and the United Kingdom are known for acting as banking middlemen, thus obscuring who really owns Uncle Sam’s obligations.

Yet, if it was just oil exporters potentially slowing their purchases of U.S. treasuries and other agency debt, it is possible America could find lenders elsewhere. But the reality is that the whole world is now facing difficult economic conditions.

America’s other lenders are tightening their belts too.

Consider China, America’s second-largest lender. China holds $541 billion in U.S. treasuries. In recent years, China has become the single most important lender to the United States.

Many people think that China can’t stop lending to the States. Some analysts feel that if the Chinese ever cut America off, it would be equivalent to cutting their own throats, since Americans wouldn’t have any money to purchase Chinese goods. But due to current economic conditions at home, China’s hand may be forced. As times get tougher, Chinese politicians will choose the immediate welfare of their people over lending to America.

China’s recently announced $586 billion stimulus plan may be a step in that direction. In relation to the size of its economy, the package dwarfs America’s $700 billion bank bailout. The equivalent would be akin to spending $3 trillion here in America. China says it will use the money to build infrastructure and create jobs.

“Unlike America, China is unlikely to borrow to finance its stimulus package,” says Euro Pacific Capital senior market strategist John Brown. “Indeed, it is likely to spend its own national earnings rather than continue to invest in U.S. treasuries” (emphasis mine throughout). China’s $586 billion is money that may no longer be available to America. “Worse still, China might even begin to sell part of its massive holdings of … U.S. treasuries,” says Brown. “However it is financed, China’s stimulus packages is decidedly bad news for America.”

According to analyst Morgan Housel, the thought of China reducing lending to America—or worse, selling portions of its U.S. debt holdings—should make you quiver. “Not unlike the over-leveraged financial companies pinned up against a wall in recent months, the U.S. relies on the kindness of strangers to fund its insane dependence on debt. As Wall Street learned in the past two months, things go downhill quickly once those strangers shift their priorities from lending to hoarding.”

Housel says the bigger concern for America isn’t that the economic crisis is spreading, but that like China, other countries “may place less importance on plowing hard-earned surpluses into the U.S., and focus more on their domestic dilemmas.” Already, Japan, Germany, and others have announced stimulus plans of their own.

So if the oil exporters have less money to lend and the Chinese have less money to lend and the whole world has less money to lend, how is America going to get the money to fund its grandiose stimulus packages? Estimates suggest America will need to borrow $1.4 trillion in 2009! That is more than three times as much as America borrowed last year.

If America expects to borrow the money, it may have to significantly raise interest rates to attract lenders. And this realization could send the streets into a Treasury bond market massacre.

America’s foreign creditors may be about to get burned. When the government raises the interest rates that its newly issued bonds yield, it has the effect of devaluing the worth of all existing bonds. All those people who previously lent money to the U.S. will instantly be left holding less-valuable bonds.

A bond market crash becomes all the more real when you consider recent headlines suggesting that because of all the extra debt the government will be taking on, the U.S. may be on course to lose its triple-A credit rating. A credit downgrade will similarly gut the value of existing U.S. treasuries.

The odds that America will tighten its belt by reducing spending, slashing services, and hiking taxes is remote—after all, stimulus packages are about spending more, not less.

When you consider America’s growing debt load, the under-funded Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid liabilities, and the slowing global economy, you are looking at a looming bond market massacre of the ages.

And when the bond market crash alienates our foreign lenders, how then will America borrow the money it needs each day to keep functioning?

That is the take-home message: Foreign indebtedness, coupled with chronically living beyond our means, is crippling America. “The U.S. is so vulnerable, its true condition is indescribable,” says economic analyst Jim Willie.

As the Bible warns: “And it shall be, as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him. The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled … because they have transgressed the laws …. Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate” (Isaiah 24:2-6).

The days of borrowing to spend are coming to an end.

UNPRECEDENTED RAPE OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE UNDERWAY IN DC
PART 1 of 2


By: Devvy
November 13, 2008

© 2008 – NewsWithViews.com

Rape is an ugly word usually attributed to an attack on a woman. It also means an act of plunder, violent seizure, or abuse; despoliation; violation: the rape of the countryside.

There is no other word to describe what has been happening in Washington, DC., for the past two and a half months. The so-called bail out of lending institutions and banks has turned into a free for all that is mind boggling, already running in the TRILLIONS with no end in sight. As the layers have been unfolding over the past few weeks, only someone in complete denial can say with a straight face that this unconstitutional looting of the people’s labor has been anything but mass rape.

The Fed is thumbing their nose at Congress: Nov. 10 (Bloomberg) — “The Federal Reserve is refusing to identify the recipients of almost $2 trillion of emergency loans from American taxpayers or the troubled assets the central bank is accepting as collateral. Fed Chairman Ben S. Bernanke and Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson said in September they would comply with congressional demands for transparency in a $700 billion bailout of the banking system. Two months later, as the Fed lends far more than that in separate rescue programs that didn’t require approval by Congress, Americans have no idea where their money is going or what securities the banks are pledging in return.”

Congress foolishly gave the privately owned “FED” and Treasury total power with the bail out deal and now they’re getting their noses rubbed in it. Lending institutions who received all this borrowed, worthless paper called a ‘bail out’ or ‘rescue plan’ are spending the sweat off your back like there’s no tomorrow on big bonuses and lavish events, while Congress sits around scratching their backsides. Congress has let the genie out of the bottle and they’re now running around like the nitwits they are trying to shore up this disaster of their own making.

Congress never had the authority to to rob and plunder the people’s empty purse for what has turned into a never ending bail out bonanza. Congress has no right to steal from you via heavier and heavier taxation to bail out, rescue or make loans to companies in the private sector. Well, that is until Congress, with the blessing of Bush, simply decided a little over two months ago to finally burn Art. 1, Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution. They have become totally lawless with zero restraints on their actions.

Congress willfully violates the U.S. Constitution now as a matter of doing business. These crooks, including Marxist Obama and Juan McCain, have simply rubber stamped the utter and complete bankruptcy of this country. It’s foolish at this point to try and sugar coat reality. The raw, hard numbers are there for anyone to see. Desperate Americans are begging for the government to bail out their industries, so they care little for the Constitution. All they want is their bacon saved. What they are embracing is totalitarian government.

Congress didn’t bail out ENRON. They let the seventh largest corporation with a capitalization of $60 billion dollars go under. I believe the reason is 9/11, which I have covered in other columns. However, as the mortgage melt down became epidemic, instead of letting the market correct itself, in steps a thieving government. Now you are making your mortgage payment and your neighbors. As tragic as the foreclosure epidemic is, to make those of us who meet our monthly mortgage obligations and then are fleeced to pay for someone’s else’s with borrowed money is indentured servitude. We are being forced with a gun to our head to slave for someone else’s house payment. But wait! Headlines, November 12, 2008: Treasury Secretary Paulson – bail out money not to be used to buy toxic mortgages after all!

Did you not see this 0:26 second video of a woman cheering that Obama is going to pay her mortgage and gas? No, you will pay and the trap has already been sprung. What you’re seeing is one of the most dangerous precedents being set since FDR’s Nazi ‘New Deal.’ As if that’s not enough, today you will go to work to pay legal fees for these mortgage execs who covered up the truth about the financial sustainability of their corporations as well as: 86% of Bailout Money Used for Executive Bonuses.

The so-called bail out is already a massive failure except for the banking cartel who got total control of our banking and lending institutions once and for all. As we the people are trying to fight off an illegitimate president getting sworn into office, the world banking vipers are getting ready to finish the final wiring of our monetary and banking system into a global system. It is a death knell and soon you will hear the skeleton rattle clear across this land.

Bailouts: The wound that will keep on hemorrhaging: “In recent columns I have reminded people about the bail out for Chrysler – a ‘one time’ kiss from Congress back in 1981. Not so fast: “Aug. 22 2008 (Bloomberg) — General Motors Corp., Ford Motor Co., Chrysler LLC and U.S. auto-parts makers are seeking $50 billion in government-backed loans, double their initial request, to develop and build more fuel-efficient vehicles…” Next year is going to be a make-or-break year in terms of survival,” said Mirko Mikelic, senior portfolio manager at Fifth Third Asset Management in Grand Rapids, Michigan, which oversees $22 billion in assets, including GM and Ford bonds. “Any help like these government loans would be a huge boost.”

As I write this column, these thieves in Congress are scurrying to put together unconstitutional loan packages for the auto makers. They won’t make it to next year. Who was watching the books for those companies? These mega corporations sold out the American worker decades ago, kicked them into the unemployment lines and gave American jobs to foreign countries like commie China. Now they want the sweat off your back to fund their mistakes. These big auto makers have known for years their losses were in the tens of billions of dollars and could not be sustained. That’s when they should have closed their foreign plants, down sized and employed Americans in what ever factories they could keep open here in America. Of course it would help if the parking lots at GM and Ford weren’t filled with employee cars made by Toyota and other foreign companies.

Now, they’re demanding you and I bail them out even though Congress has NO authority to be a loan operation for the private sector. That’s not the big story. A ton of this borrowed money will be to fund pensions. 125,000 for Chrysler and 500,000 for GM. These corporations made these obligations living beyond their means to operate and now they want unconstitutional loans. What a horrific mess created by greedy corporations who now want you, me and our children to bail out their greed.

Yes, the auto industry employs hundreds of thousands of people. So does China Mart (Wal Mart). So does the health care industry. Congress does not have the authority to bail out those industires, either. How many more private sector industries will be lining up for hot checks from Congress? There’s NO money in the U.S. Treasury to loan. Is anyone out there listening?

Don’t look to Thanksgiving and Christmas sales to save retailers. The last I looked at a CNN poll on November 11, 2008, a whopping 45% of nearly 200,000 people said they would not be doing any Christmas shopping this year. All the lay offs underway and still to come, along with the foreclosures and massive credit card defaults, there’s little money to put into the economy. This drying up of spending will continue to drain states in unemployment benefits, shrinking tax revenues and medical treatment for those without insurance. Don’t forget the MILLIONS of illegal aliens sucking off state resources. The destruction to families all across the country is a true tragedy unfolding.

There is no ‘lame duck’ Congress because there will be no “new” Congress sworn in come January to “fix” things. It’s the same crooks with 17 “new” faces who will join in lockstep with their brethren. Marxist Obama will bring no change because he’s putting together the same players responsible for the banking collapse as his advisors. Obama is putting the wolves in the hen house. That is a fact for those who support Barack Hussein Obama. You have cut your own throat, you just haven’t choked on your own blood yet.

If this sounds rather harsh, the American people are in for the shock of their lives; the reality will begin to really settle in mid first quarter of next year. The snow ball effect of job bleeding, no credit left for over extended Americans, continued foreclosures despite all the unconstitutional maneuvers by Congress and even bankrupt states, will slam this country in a few short months. The links at the bottom are just a small number that tell the story.

The incompetent, Nancy Pelosi and fellow fools are actually contemplating another move that should finally scare the living hell out of the American people:

“Democrats in the U.S. House have been conducting hearings on proposals to confiscate workers’ personal retirement accounts — including 401(k)s and IRAs — and convert them to accounts managed by the Social Security Administration. Triggered by the financial crisis the past two months, the hearings reportedly were meant to stem losses incurred by many workers and retirees whose 401(k) and IRA balances have been shrinking rapidly.

“The testimony of Teresa Ghilarducci, professor of economic policy analysis at the New School for Social Research in New York, in hearings Oct. 7 drew the most attention and criticism. Testifying for the House Committee on Education and Labor, Ghilarducci proposed that the government eliminate tax breaks for 401(k) and similar retirement accounts, such as IRAs, and confiscate workers’ retirement plan accounts and convert them to universal Guaranteed Retirement Accounts (GRAs) managed by the Social Security Administration.”

Social security is a tax that goes into the general fund of the treasury and is not ear marked for any specific spending purpose. That is a fact. To even suggest the $1 trillion dollars in retirement funds be transferred over to a government who can’t balance a budget and continues to write hot checks for hundreds of billions of dollars every day of the week is the ultimate in lunacy. Tens of millions of Americans are depending on those retirement accounts to be ready when they retire. I cannot even put into words what will be the end result if such a dastardly deed is done by Congress.

Pelosi and Obama want a “new” stimulus package. There is NO money in the treasury. It is now overdrawn $10,622,223,198,682.54 as I write this column. Our purse, the people’s treasury is over drawn $10.6 TRILLION and what these insane lunatics are proposing is writing more hot checks to stave off the inevitable: a major depression.

At the rate Washington is stealing us blind, $100 an hour will not be enough to live on and feed your family – if you have a job. A heavy, progressive taxation is the second plank of the communist manifesto. All this borrowing to give away to lending institutions and prop up failing industries has to come from some where: YOUR shrinking bank account and take home pay.

The tax man cometh

Congress refuses to stop the unlawful confiscation of your hard earned money by the IRS. Americans are terrified of this American version of the Nazi Gestapo with very good reason. However, millions of Americans know that domestic Americans are not subject to the federal income tax. Congress will not come clean with the truth because they need this forced taxation against we the people to support their monstrous, unconstitutional looting of the treasury.

I have been in the trenches 19 years, full time, nearly seven days a week. This nation is littered with tax guru’s ripping off desperate people who bought into the oldest or newest income tax scam (straw man, UCC, redemption, etc). The federal prisons are full of Americans who fell for these bogus arguments. There are tens of thousands of people employed by organizations who need the income tax to stay a float. They care nothing for the law or the truth.

The only way we the people will stop the unlawful taking of our labor is the same way prohibition ended: Enough people said enough. Tommy Cryer is an attorney down in the lovely State of Louisiana. He is a bull dog fighter who took on the IRS. Tommy was indicted, went to trial and was acquitted. We don’t want to see any more Americans go through such an ordeal as Tommy, Joseph Banister and so many others. One thing that needs to be done is to stop supporting this cottage industry out there who claim they can get you out of the IRS system, when in fact, likely you’ll end up broke and in jail. It’s time to unify.

Tommy’s organization is growing at a rapid rate. What YOU need to do is get the facts. Not the propaganda by U.S. Attorneys who have sold their soul for a paycheck or an IRS employee for the same reason, or the factually challenged vermin who serve in Congress and need to steal your money to continue writing hot checks. Research takes time. It doesn’t come in a shake-n-bake box with instructions. Tommy has made it very simple for all of us to understand the misapplication of the Internal Revenue Code.

Truth Attack is the one organization in this country where everyone can become a participant. In order to stop the plunder, you have to dry up the source of revenue being used. For new readers to my column, take time this weekend to read these two columns of mine: Why An Income Tax Isn’t Necessary to Fund the Federal Government (also available for free on audio; listen on your computer or download to your IPod or a CD and listen on the train, in your tractor or in commute traffic); and The Right Argument on Taxation.

Then, go to Tommy’s web site, click here. This is where you will find what Congress and the media won’t tell you about the federal income tax and how the IRS, deliberately and with malice, extorts the sweat of your labor with lies. Don’t let someone else tell you what’s the truth, you do the research and become part of the solution.

To say the economic situation in this country is going to get much worse is the understatement of the century. What Congress has been doing and what’s coming as a result of their treachery will put millions of Americans into shock. My mail box is full everyday from Americans scared to death about what’s left in their 401(k)s and what will happen with our currency becoming more worthless by the day. My mail box is full of stories of people in pain as reality is coming home to roost. It breaks my heart, but so many of us have tried our best to get the truth out while corporate media and their mouth pieces lie every day in their newspapers and on the tube.

Diversify some of your assets into gold. Gold is not an ATM machine, it is a long term investment. There are excellent buys out there if you talk to the right people. As always, I recommend people I trust and have personally done business with: El Dorado Gold. Astute investors will always tell you that owning gold is the only real money and a hedge against a monetary collapse and devaluation.

In my last column, I reinforced why it is critical the constitutional militia be reconstituted by the states. One reader let me know that West Virginia should be included in the states to target because his state stands for freedom and has a lot of real patriots. One quick follow up: Dr. Edwin Vieira has a good inventory of his Constitutional Militia book if you can’t locate it on line; some people have had a problem finding a copy. To order: $19.95 postpaid, by check or money payable to Edwin Vieira, Jr. at 52 Stonegate Court, Front Royal, Virginia 22630.

PLEASE demand Bush pardon U.S. Border Patrol Agents Ramos and Campean. Pray Bush has one ounce of humanity left. Let your voice be heard, click here.

The strange behavior of Philadelphia lawyer Philip J. Berg

Why would a Philadelphia lawyer file frivolous claims in federal courts about Barack Obama? Is it possible the lawyer is trying to divert attention from serious questions that exist about Obama’s birth certificate and troubled and confusing family history?

Andy Martin speculates on the bizarre litigation behavior of Philadelphia lawyer Philip J. Berg

ANDY MARTIN
Executive Editor
http://contrariancommentary.blogspot.com/

“Factually Correct, Not
Politically Correct”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

PHILADELPHIA LAWYER PHILIP J. BERG SAYS HE IS AN OPPONENT OF BARACK OBAMA; IS HE?

BERG’S PROFESSIONAL MISCONDUCT RAISES QUESTIONS ABOUT HIS MOTIVES AND COMPETENCE.

(NEW YORK)(November 11, 2008) Some time in mid-August I began to get phone calls from a lawyer’s office in Philadelphia. The lawyer was Philip J. Berg.

I eventually spoke with Mr. Berg. He explained that he was preparing to file a lawsuit against Barack Obama and a number of other parties. Berg asked if I would review the case before it was filed, and I agreed.

I carefully read Berg’s initial complaint. (Some of the confirming e-mails are in the hands of Patriot Brigade Talk Radio Network.) I advised Berg’s office that his lawsuit would not fly in federal court. His joinder of the Federal Election Commission was utter nonsense. Naming the Democratic Party was questionable. Seeking to enjoin the Party’s convention was silliness. For an ordinary voter to sue Obama was a lost cause; I explained that already this year two judges had ruled individuals lacked legal standing to file such a claim. Berg sent me a revised version of his lawsuit that was equally deficient.

Berg has tried to pretend that his lack of “standing” is a technicality. On the contrary, in federal courts standing is a threshold jurisdictional issue. State courts have broad “general” jurisdiction. Federal courts are courts of limited jurisdiction. I explained to Berg how he could file a meritorious lawsuit in state court but he was frantic. “I want to file before the Democratic Convention so I can apply for an injunction,” he said. At that point I decided Berg was a loon and had no further contact.

Mr. Berg did file his loony case, and it began to attract a lot of attention. My initial reaction was sadness at the gullibility of the public. People obviously had no idea that the form and forum of Berg’s lawsuit were totally deficient.

I did not become concerned until a New York radio talk show host who is a friend called me and said “Andy, what about the order for Obama to produce his birth certificate?” I explained to my friend that there was no such order. Berg and his supporters were spreading disinformation or allowing it to be disseminated.

I began receiving more calls and e-mails about Berg’s lawsuit. Berg was escalating the idiocy of his behavior to attract frustrated voters. “Obama admitted he was born in Kenya,” screamed one Berg release. Obama had admitted nothing of the sort. The more irresponsible Berg became, the more e-mail he generated from desperate voters.

Berg’s lawsuit was promptly dismissed, as I had anticipated before it was even filed. Berg was ready with an explanation: there was a conspiracy to deprive him of justice. No such conspiracy existed.

Last month my staff and I discussed whether we should do a column about Berg’s harmful behavior. We decided to ignore him and hope he would go away. Mr. Berg is not going away. He keeps manufacturing false claims to stay in the news and to keep soliciting money.

After Berg lost in the district court, he filed an appeal to the U. S. Court of Appeals. But there was no “juice” in a mere appeal. Berg was soon asking the U.S. Supreme Court to stop the national election—on the basis of his crackpot lawsuit. Once again Berg was denied relief. And once again Berg was ready with a new round of disinformation.

I started to get e-mails telling me the Supreme Court had ordered Obama to produce a birth certificate. No such order existed. The Rules of the Supreme Court allow thirty days to respond; Berg converted that into an “order” from the Court compelling his opponents to respond. Sheer disinformation. There was no “order.”

The false claims about the Supreme Court are what convinced me to reverse my earlier view and write a column questioning Berg’s behavior.

Enough, Mr. Berg.

What’s next from him? What ridiculous claim will he concoct to continue attracting attention?

During this entire period of idiotic behavior Berg was going on talk radio and soliciting funds for his doomed mission.

What should all of this teach us? I have several thoughts for the reader to consider.

First, no one is more opposed to Barack Obama and his hard left warriors than I am. Obama’s minions were not attacking Berg during the campaign; they were attacking me. I was the first one to focus attention on Obama’s evasiveness and deception, four years ago. But while I have attacked Obama, I have also worked hard to anchor all of my claims in evidence, interviews and traditional forms of legal research. That’s what really scares Obama.

When I asked Berg in August how he was going to prove Obama was born in Kenya, he said “I saw it on the Internet.” Not good enough for a federal judge.

Second, Berg likes to identify himself as a “supporter” of Hillary Clinton. That’s garbage. He’s smearing Clinton. Clinton must cringe every time Berg does some new stunt and misuses her name. Berg has no connection with Clinton. More misuse.

Third, is Berg’s motive to collect money from frustrated voters? I don’t know. He does ask for cash, so that may be the explanation. To be sure, my Committee also receives donations, but we have funded two trips to Hawai’i for Obama research and investigation, and a birth certificate lawsuit scheduled for a hearing on November 18th in Honolulu.

Fourth, could Berg be professionally incompetent? Berg has been criticized by judges: http://www.law.com/jsp/article.jsp?id=1122023117263
http://systocracy.com/Bergmalpracticetwo
http://www.paed.uscourts.gov/documents/opinions/05D0679P.pdf
http://www.paed.uscourts.gov/documents/opinions/05d0521p.pdf

Finally, is Berg really an Obama operative? Berg’s behavior is so far outside the normal confines of legal practice that his conduct is aberrant as well as abhorrent. To date, only Obama has benefited from Berg’s misbehavior. When an Obama opponent acts crazy, Obama’s people say “See.”

There are very legitimate questions about Obama’s birth certificate and family history. By filing frivolous cases (a case filed in the wrong court seeking the wrong relief against the wrong defendants is frivolous) and misusing legitimate issues, Berg obscures the seriousness of the underlying questions about Obama’s past. And, inevitably, journalists link Berg and others (such as myself) together, despite the fact that we have absolutely no connection. I, for one, do not enjoy being joined to Berg in any form, even a news story. http://www.thebulletin.us/site/index.cfm?newsid=20193200&BRD=2737&PAG=461&dept_id=576361&rfi=8

Likewise, Berg’s use of Clinton’s name benefits Obama by discrediting Clinton as a possible behind-the-scenes Berg supporter, when nothing could be further from the truth. Dirty tricks? Obama and Axelrod are masters of smears by association and deception. Although I am not an enthusiastic believer of the Berg-for-Obama explanation for Berg’s behavior, it still makes a lot of sense.

Certainly no competent attorney who regularly practices in federal court would engage in Berg’s hijinks. At some point Berg could face sanctions for his misconduct and abusive behavior.

So we are left with no clear explanation for why Berg is acting out: (1) is he “crazy” or ill? (2) is he an Obama saboteur? (3) is he a financial flim flam artist using false claims to collect money? (4) is he an incompetent attorney? I can’t say for sure which of those apply. I leave it to the good reader’s common sense to reflect on Berg’s behavior and to decide for him or herself just what Berg’s motivation is.

Helping the anti-Obama movement is not Berg’s mission. Quite the opposite. Berg has helped Obama by discrediting Obama’s opponents. So what is Berg’s game? Let me know what you think.

THE COMING U.S. CONSTITUTIONAL CRISES

November 9, 2008

Obama and our coming constitutional crisis By Ellis Washington

November 8th, 2008 •

Filed Under: Featured
Tags: barack obama • constitutional crisis • election 2008

I was in the delivery room in [Mombosa,] Kenya, when he was born Aug. 4, 1961.~ Obama’s paternal grandmother.

Nothing is more important than enforcing the Constitution.

~ Philip Berg, petitioner – Philip J. Berg v. Barack Obama, et al. (2008)

As President-elect Barack Obama ascends to the presidency of the United States, there still remains a looming cloud above his head like the sword of Damocles. If and when that sword will fall plunging America into a constitutional crisis depends on a number of desperate and remarkable variables.

Before I get into these variables, let’s examine what the Constitution says. What are the requirements to become president? Section 1 of Article II of the U.S. Constitution states that a president must:

* be a natural born citizen of the United States;
* be at least 35 years old;
* have lived in the U.S. for at least 14 years.

The inevitable constitutional crisis regarding Obama, of course, revolves around his inability (or unwillingness) to produce an authentic Hawaiian birth certificate with the raised certificate stamp that the Federal Elections Commission can independently verify.

I know there are those who say Obama has produced an authentic birth certificate and posted it on his website, but experts and amateurs alike quickly found numerous errors in that document and deemed it a forgery (and a bad one at that).

Philip J. Berg, a Democratic operative and former deputy attorney general of Pennsylvania, has assumed the tragic role of Prometheus, ascended Mount Olympus, the abode of Zeus, and has launched a one-man campaign to force Obama to verify his U.S. citizenship by suing the senator, the Democratic National Committee and the Federal Election Commission, to verify that indeed he is worthy to be president of the United States by producing a real birth certificate.

Here are some of the unanswered issues hanging over the head of President-elect Barack Obama and the question of his American citizenship cited in an earlier article by WND news editor Drew Zahn:

* The allegation that Obama was born in Kenya to parents unable to automatically grant him American citizenship;

* The allegation that Obama was made a citizen of Indonesia as a child and that he retained foreign citizenship into adulthood without recording an oath of allegiance to regain any theoretical American citizenship;

* The allegation that Obama’s birth certificate was a forgery and that he may not be an eligible, natural-born citizen;

* The allegation that Obama was not born an American citizen; lost any hypothetical American citizenship he had as a child; that Obama may not now be an American citizen and even if he is, may hold dual citizenships with other countries. If any, much less all, of these allegations are true, the suit claims, Obama cannot constitutionally serve as president.

* The allegations that “Obama’s grandmother on his father’s side, half brother and half sister claim Obama was born in Kenya,” the suit states.”Reports reflect Obama’s mother went to Kenya during her pregnancy; however, she was prevented from boarding a flight from Kenya to Hawaii at her late stage of pregnancy, which apparently was a normal restriction to avoid births during a flight. Stanley Ann Dunham (Obama) gave birth to Obama in Kenya, after which she flew to Hawaii and registered Obama’s birth.”

* The claim could not be verified by WND inquiries to Hawaiian hospitals, since state law bars the hospitals from releasing medical records to the public;

* Even if Obama produced authenticated proof of his birth in Hawaii, however, the suit claims that the U.S. Nationality Act of 1940 provided that minors lose their American citizenship when their parents expatriate. Since Obama’s mother married an Indonesian citizen and moved to Indonesia, the suit claims, she forfeited both her and Barack’s American citizenship.

Unfortunately, just 10 days before the election, a court of appeals judge threw out Berg’s lawsuit challenging the veracity of Obama’s U.S. citizenship status on technical grounds. Judge R. Barclay Surrick, a Jimmy Carter-appointed judge, amazingly (and with a tinge of irony), stated his opinion in part:

In a 34-page memorandum that accompanied the court order, the Hon. R. Barclay Surrick concludes that ordinary citizens can’t sue to ensure that a presidential candidate actually meets the constitutional requirements of the office.Surrick defers to Congress, saying that the legislature could determine “that citizens, voters, or party members should police the Constitution’s eligibility requirements for the Presidency,” but that it would take new laws to grant individual citizens that ability.

“Until that time,” Surrick says, “voters do not have standing to bring the sort of challenge that Plaintiff attempts to bring.”

Judge Surrick, quoting from Hollander, concludes, “The alleged harm to voters stemming from a presidential candidate’s failure to satisfy the eligibility requirements of the Natural Born Citizen Clause is not concrete or particularized enough to constitute an injury.”

Surrick also quotes Lujan v. Defenders of Wildlife, which stated, in part, “The Supreme Court has consistently held that a plaintiff raising only a generally available grievance about government – claiming only harm to his and every citizen’s interest in proper application of the Constitution and laws, and seeking relief that no more directly and tangibly benefits him than it does the public at large – does not state an Article III case or controversy.”

Constitutionally speaking, Judge Surrick’s reasoning is completely illogical and a total dereliction of his duty as a judge to substantively address this most vital constitutional controversy. Instead, in a gutless manner, Surrick dismissed Berg’s complaint 10 days before the elections on a technicality of standing, which to any rational person begs the question: If Philip J. Berg as an American citizen, a respected Democratic operative and former attorney general of Pennsylvania doesn’t have the “standing” to bring this type of lawsuit against Obama, then who in America does have standing? The good judge in all 34 pages of legal mumbo jumbo didn’t bother to answer this pivotal question.

That Berg’s complaint is not “concrete or particularized enough to constitute an injury” is an amazing admission by any person that went to law school and even more so given the fact that Surrick is a respected appellate judge!

I am somewhat hopeful that Berg will successfully appeal Surrick’s outrageous decision to 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals and then to the United States Supreme Court if necessary, even if technically he doesn’t have standing to hold Obama accountable to the Constitution. Why? Because this is America, and out of 300 million people, someone should give a damn enough about this republic to make sure the person who holds the highest elected office in the land holds it legitimately based on the black letter text of Article II, Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution.

Unless and until Obama’s citizenship question is definitively put to rest, then the proverbial sword of Damocles will continue to dangle precariously over his head and America will face 50 lawsuits from all 50 states demanding that President Barack Obama prove that he is an authentic American citizen according to the U.S. Constitution.

COMRADE BARAK OBAMA IS NOT AMERICA’S NEXT PRESIDENT

“In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot.” Mark Twain, Notebook, 1904

I’m not going to comment on the carefully orchestrated show put on yesterday by the media; that will be my next column. What a scam. As I have covered in previous columns, between dirty voting rolls, voter registration fraud, illegals voting and corrupted electronic voting machines and scanners, we have NO idea who was legally elected yesterday. I updated the compilation of vote fraud links; see here. There are more at the bottom.

There is still the unresolved issue of Obama providing a COLB – Certification of Live Birth – to prove he is a natural born citizen. Not a “birth certificate,” but the COLB. The fact that this thug from Chicago refuses to provide this document since June, 2008, says it all. The second issue is if Obama were born in the U.S., but was automatically made an Indonesian citizen by virtue of his mother’s marriage to her Indonesian husband and Obama’s legal name change, he is ineligible to run for the presidency. Naturalized citizens are not eligible for the highest office in the land.

Contrary to the propaganda spewed last night by the pimps who work for corporate media, Obama is not the next president. We need to remember how the system actually works:

The Electoral College:
November 5, 2004
Thomas H. Neale
Analyst in American National Government
Government and Finance Division
Congressional Research Service ˜ The Library of Congress
CRS Report for Congress

“When Americans vote for a President and Vice President, they actually vote for presidential electors, known collectively as the electoral college. It is these electors, chosen by the people, who elect the chief executive….

“It is these elector-candidates, rather than the presidential and vice presidential nominees, for whom the people vote in the election held on Tuesday after the first Monday in November….

“Electors assemble in their respective states on Monday after the second Wednesday in December (December 13, 2004). They are pledged and expected, but not required, to vote for the candidates they represent. Separate ballots are cast for President and Vice President, after which the electoral college ceases to exist for another four years. The electoral vote results are counted and declared at a joint session of Congress, held on January 6 of the year succeeding the election. A majority of electoral votes (currently 270 of 538) is required to win.”

Until those electors meet on December 15, 2008, cast their vote and those votes are counted on January 6, 2009, Obama is not the next president.

Phil Berg’s lawsuit is still active with the U.S. Supreme Court.

Andy Martin’s lawsuit: The next hearing date is November 18, 2008.

I fully realize that Americans who haven’t joined the Obama cult are stunned at what happened on Tuesday, but we must remember it was all in the game plan. I have used this metaphor before to describe the illusion of fair and impartial elections: It’s like a student taking driving lessons. The first time out, the student gets the fake steering wheel while the instructor is actually controlling the vehicle. But, the fake steering wheel makes the student “feel” he has control and that perception is all important when evil forces take over a country. That’s what we saw yesterday. The fact that Mcain conceded around 8:30 pm CST before half the states west of the Mississippi had even counted 20% of their votes, only confirms what millions of us already knew – he was the designated loser.

America took the single largest step towards becoming a communist nation in my life time with this alleged election of a Marxist-Leninist. In April, I began describing Obama as a Marxist. My mail box filled up with angry email insisting that Obama is a “progressive,” liberal Democrat. This is the ignorance of a dumbed down population who have no idea what Marxism means: The political and economic ideas of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels as developed into a system of thought that gives class struggle a primary role in leading society from bourgeois democracy under capitalism to a socialist society and thence to communism. Redistribution of wealth is the major tenet of communism. It is also Obama’s plan. Right up to the day before the election, a few braves souls in the media were finally referring to his real political ideology. Of course, Obama’s cult followers immediately attempted to ridicule or slap them down.

It’s easy to get depressed over last Tuesday. Don’t. That’s what the shadow government wants. We are warriors, not cry babies. I know the rage is blowing out there like a hot furnace, but the fight is not over. We’re entering the next phase: the electors. We’re also entering the most dangerous time in this nation’s history since Lexington and Concord. Now isn’t the time to throw in the towel. Now is the time to fight.

In my last column, I provided a link on auditing the vote and how to do it. The Democrats made vote fraud a national issue in 2000 and 2004. The Republican Party has never made vote fraud a national issue. Oh, sure, FAUX News Network and Lou Dobbs (CNN) pounded on it the past six weeks, but it’s the Democrats who mobilized, ignored the vote fraud by their party and blamed it on all the Republicans. Yes, the last three presidential elections were rigged, but it was done by the forces who control the political system in this country and have for 40 years.

The pointing the finger exercise is a distraction. Just like the bull, the cape and the matador. Technology has simply made it easier than stuffing ballot boxes and having everyone in Chicago vote twice, including residents of their local cemeteries. Of course, now that a Democrat has allegedly “won” the White House by vote fraud, helped along by legions of ignorant, uninformed voters, some racists and those who voted for skin color only, they could care less about fairness in 2008.

Right now they’re basking in their arrogance, but the wrath of the American people is just warming up. If Republican and ‘third party’ candidates who allegedly lost on Tuesday do not pursue catching the vote fraud in their election instead of just shrugging their shoulders and walking away, the destroyers win. Here is the link. I updated it slightly. Time is of the essence due to drop dead dates for certification. If you supported a candidate by a vote and/or working for their campaign, help them prove the fraud.

This is critical for all 434 seats in the House of Representatives (excluding Ron Paul). Here is the logic-free zone:

In 1994, voters were fed up with the communists, socialists and big spenders in Congress and “swept them out of power.” In came the Republicans touting the farce called a ‘Contract with America,’ who bloated the budget and continued down the same path under a different label. They held power until November 2006. Voters wanted change! Voters wanted change so badly, they voted back in all the long time Democrats with a few “new” faces. In past two years a Democrat controlled Congress representing ‘change’ has done what? NOTHING except loot this country and continue funding the immoral, unconstitutional invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq.

Americans were outraged over the rape and pillage called ‘the bail out.” A colossal failure that continues to drain the life blood of Americans. Yet, with the exception of 17 seats in the House and 5 in the unlawfully seated seated U.S. Senate, voters allegedly voted them all back into office on Tuesday! With the lowest approval rating in the history of the U.S. Congress, allegedly the American people once again rewarded these crooks by rehiring them and bringing in even more Democrats to join the grand larceny stealing the fruits of our labor! Quite a difference between from what polls indicated:

3 in 5 voters: Boot every congressman. 59 percent say they’d kick out all members of House, Senate. October 5, 2008: “If given the choice, a new poll reveals, 59 percent of Americans would sweep Capitol Hill clean of the current batch of senators and representatives to elect an entirely new Congress. Only 17 percent of voters polled said they would be willing to keep the current legislature.”

Yesterday I filed four Freedom of Information Act requests and sent them over night mail. One: Illinois Secretary of State to obtain all documentation, applications, forms, electronic and hard copy, including proof of citizenship for Barack Hussein Obama for his 1996 Illinois State Senate race. I filed two with the U.S. State Department (1) Stanley Ann Dunham, married name Stanley Ann Obama to obtain her passport application and all travel records; departure and entry into the U.S. during the year 1961; and (2) Barack Obama, Sr., to obtain his travel records, entry and departure records for the year 1961. Four: I filed a State Records Act request with the University of Hawaii to obtain Stanley Ann Dunham, then married, Stanley Ann Obama’s enrollment applications and list of classes, and any and all documentation regarding her departure from the University for good.

I also sent another letter over night mail to James Burrus, Chief Investigator of Election Fraud, Federal Bureau of Investigation in Washington, DC. This is a follow up to my letter of October 30, 2008. I enclosed a copy of the transcripts of the interviews in Kenya (see bottom links in this column), an article from NewsMax.com regarding hundreds of millions of dollars illegally donated:

“In addition to the donations the campaign has disclosed, however, it has taken an unprecedented $218 million from donors whose names it is keeping secret, according to FEC spokesman Robert Biersack. That money came from individuals who in theory never passed the threshold of $200, the limit the FEC set for public disclosure of a donor’s name and place of residence, so there is no way of knowing how much foreign money could be included in that amount.

“For example, hidden away amidst the unprecedented $150 million Obama claims to have raised from individual donors in September was more than $42 million raised from secret donors. These donations appear in the records as a single entry under the heading, “Donors, Unitemized.”

“Newsmax retained the services of former CIA operations officer Frederick W. Rustmann Jr. and a team of international forensic accounting experts to comb through Obama’s donor list to identify those who apparently aren’t U.S. citizens or residents. Rustmann, a 24 year veteran field officer, operates CTC International Group Ltd., a West Palm Beach, Fla., firm that provides business intelligence services and analysis.”

I reminded Burrus of the birth certificate issue and that he must investigate this while investigating possible violation of the wire fraud statute: 18 U.S.C. §1343. I reminded him of his oath of office and that this is not about politics or party loyalty, it’s about the law. We cannot have an illegitimate president in the White House.

Please don’t send me email about the FOIAs. I am aware documents can be forged or altered, but the truth will come out. Those who choose to participate in such unlawful activities will eventually get caught. I’m also aware of the uphill battle. However, my last FOIA against the FAA regarding 9/11 went to a lawsuit and I won. It is better to spend your time helping candidates prove vote fraud and with the plans regarding electoral college delegates.

Phil Berg is putting together the strategy for the electoral college delegates for all the states Obama allegedly won. This involves action before and on December 15, 2008, the date all electors meet at their state capitols to cast their votes for president and vice president. Remember: They are not bound to cast their vote for the candidate presented as a result of ‘election day.’ Electors who stand up for what is right are called “faithless.” Does it ever happen? In 1976, a Republican elector in Washington voted for Ronald Reagan instead of Gerald Ford. This year we intend for it to be a landslide. What’s right and for the good of our republic must trump worrying about staying in the good graces of some political party. Obama is gambling he can stall the birth certificate issue until coronation day and steal the White House under the idiom, possession is nine tenths of the law. We intend to stop him legally.

As soon as Phil has drafted his plan, I will get it into a column right away. I believe there are some other groups working on this issue and I hope they will join with Phil and let him be the central point of contact for this effort. That way we’re all on the same sheet of music and it’s done correctly. We will not get a second chance.

VOTERS – PAY ATTENTION

November 4, 2008

Defeat Obama – Advice For Voters

By Webster G. Tarpley
11-3-8

Here are three suggested guidelines for voters in the general election.

1. Defeat Obama at all costs, since an Obama victory would put a crypto-Weatherman foundation operative and Trilateral Wall Street puppet into the White House, taking this country and the world towards catastrophe.

2. Defeat all members of Congress who supported the $700 billion derivatives bailout for Obama’s backers at Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan Chase.

3. Do everything possible to avoid a one-party regime controlled by the Obama-Pelosi-Reid cabal, which would impose a modern version of the Mussolini fascist corporate state, building on the state- sponsored compulsory cartelization embodied in the first installment of the bailout. The realistic goal is to obtain divided government, partisan paralysis, as much gridlock as possible, and a legislative standoff to provide time for the maturation of the necessary New Deal programmatic alternative to the current Democratic and Republican leaderships. We must avoid a Democratic Senate majority so large that opposition filibusters become impossible.

Obama is by far the greatest evil in sight. He would ride into power on the back of an artificially-induced mass movement of fanatics, lemming, Kool-Aid drinkers, and personality cultists who are devoted not to a set of issues or a program of government, but to the worship of Obama as savior and messiah. Obama’s fanatical following could then be organized as a Green Corps, Homeland Security Corps, etc., and proceed to crush the forms of social organization which would be capable of mounting a future challenge to Obama’s regime. This dynamic recalls the growth of fascism in Italy between 1919 and 1922. Fascism is emphatically not what Jonah Goldberg and Naomi Wolf say it is; the reality of fascism is a grass-roots, anti-authoritarian, anti-establishment movement with strong leftist and radical elements, controlled by bankers and financiers with the help of a charismatic demagogue ­ just as we see with Obama.

The Obama campaign represents a massive attempt to manipulate, divide, fragment, demoralize, and disorient the American people. His methods embody an unprecedented assault on human freedom and human reason. Obama, building on the wreckage of 8 years of Bush, seeks to break the will of the American people to resist the dictates of the Wall Street derivatives merchants. Obama’s stock in trade is collective guilt and political blackmail. He is the most sinister and scurrilous presidential candidate since Aaron Burr. He is not a natural born citizen of the United States, as the Constitution prescribes. Obama is a foundation-funded poverty pimp by training. Obama’s original backer is the convicted felon Rezko; his resident chaplain is the racist foundation provocateur Jeremiah Wright; and his sponsors and best friends are the foundation-funded Weatherman terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, who will dominate Obama’s kitchen cabinet. An Obama regime is a leap into the abyss.

If he could seize power, Obama would have a far greater ability than McCain to break strikes, bust unions, and impose sacrifice and austerity, especially under the auspices of the global warming/cap and trade hoax, to finance bailouts for Wall Street. He would provide US imperialism with a radical face lift, energizing the Brzezinski-Soros strategy of courting confrontation with Russia, China, Pakistan, and Sudan, using pretexts based on human rights and humanitarian concerns. No folly is greater than antagonizing Russia and China, countries which can and will defend themselves from foreign aggression using ICBMs and hydrogen bombs. Obama would give US imperialism a demagogic, even pseudo-revolutionary, second wind. Obama is clearly the most dangerous imperialist politician in sight.

McCain, by contrast, has no fanatical following of any kind, not even among right-wing Republicans, where he is barely tolerated. He would come into office as a tired old lame duck destined to serve one term and no more. He would be a transitional figure, locked in partisan combat with a resentful Democratic majority doubly enraged by the failure of their planned Obama coup. Because of McCain’s ideas about earmarks and pork barrel spending, he would also be in conflict with many Republicans. With McCain in power, the political impact of the current world economic and financial depression will be directed against Republicans, unless McCain shifts towards New Deal measures, which ­ as a loose cannon — he has done with his Home Owners’ Loan Corporation to stop foreclosures, which is more of the New Deal than anything Obama has proposed. The greatest threat to Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid comes from Obama- Pelosi-Reid-Soros-Rockefeller, not from McCain facing a Democratic Congress. Similarly, there is no reason to fear McCain’s Supreme Court nominees, since the Democrats will be able to Bork these nominees in the Senate if they really want to.

For those interested in reforming the Democratic Party from within, it is imperative to vote against Obama so as to oust the Dean- Brazile clique as retribution for their outrageous behavior in illegally handing the nomination to Obama, the darling of Wall Street and the Wall Street media whores, rather than to Hillary Clinton, the clear choice of Democratic primary voters. All the rotten elements in the Democratic Party have attached themselves to Obama, like iron filings to a magnet. If Obama can be defeated, these elements can be largely purged, and a more viable Democratic Party might emerge.

McCain is a traditional, garden variety Republican politician who oscillates between conservative and outright reactionary policies. Obama, by contrast, evokes the fascism and personality cultism of the young Mussolini. Much of Obama’s appeal is based on widespread hatred for Bush, Cheney, and the neocons. Such hated is understandable, but it is a great mistake to be so blinded by hatred as to ignore the evidence that things will be considerably worse under Obama; the lesson of 1922 Italy and 1933 Germany is that a fascist is incomparably worse than any reactionary, but the difference may not be evident to many people until it is too late. Those who think that nothing could be worse than Bush-Cheney need to read Biden’s Seattle remarks of Oct. 19, where he promised a generated international confrontation with Russia during the first six months of the Obama regime, with the righteousness of the US position being in doubt. Implicit here is a return to false flag terrorist provocations, now targeting the new enemies’ list of Russia, China, Sudan, or Pakistan, along with the possibility of more Georgia-style aggression against Russia by US puppet states, probably in eastern Europe. Biden also promises economic decisions by Obama that will be so hated by the American people that the standing of the new regime in the polls will collapse within the first year, just as occurred with the previous Trilateral puppet, Jimmy Carter.

Biden leaves no doubt that Obama is the bringer of international confrontation far more dangerous than anything the neocons could manage, and that he will seek crushing, brutal, devastating reductions in the remaining US standard of living. The class instinct of Joe the Plumber is correct: Obama hates the American blue collar working class, and must be viewed by them as a class enemy. After Biden’s Seattle speech, nobody can claim that they did not know what horrendous policies Obama would implement.

No matter what happens in the election, we will need to rebuild the anti-war movement, which has been largely wrecked by the Obama machine. The arena of new threats is not primarily the Middle East, but rather the borders of Russia, as the insane Saakashvili-Georgia adventure shows. The entire US foreign policy establishment is hysterically dedicated to settling accounts with Russia. This is the current form of efforts by the London-New York-Washington elite to impose an Anglo-American imperial world order for the next hundred years, and these efforts are doomed to explode in all our faces. McCain is nearly as bad on these issues as Obama, with both being advised by members of the Brzezinski clan. But McCain cannot mobilize 200,000 German lemmings at the Brandenburg gate, cannot appeal to Africa to kick out the Chinese, and thus would be a weaker imperialist. Anti-war forces must accordingly regroup to oppose a new round of adventurism on a far vaster scale, no matter what emerges from the elections.

This is a time for strategic voting. Voting for a candidate is neither a sacrament nor a marriage. Third party candidates provide an alternative in some states, and any of them is far better than supporting Obama. The task is clear: to mobilize as many voters as possible to stop Obama’s seizure of power, and to prevent a one- party state. Once again, we must be active, or else we may be radioactive ­ with Obama.
