Obama Campaign Tries to Soften Biden’s Warning — About Obama
(FROM: CNS News)

“Mark my words,” Biden was quoted as saying. “It will be not 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.”

Yeah, Joe … in an election where the guy at the top of your ticket is trying desperately to make it all about the economy rather than national security and foreign policy, this helps. You know, back on August 19, I correctly predicted that Obama would choose Sen. Biden as his running mate, and warned that unless Biden could “forego tradition and avoid sticking his foot in his mouth,” his selection could violate the cardinal rule of VP selection — do no harm. Little did I know that Obama would truly be the teflon candidate and nothing short of crucifixion (figuratively, of course) could derail, or even slow, his candidacy.

Obama’s Secret Campaign Cash: Has $63 Million Flowed from Foreign Sources?
(FROM: Newsmax) With $150 million collected in September alone, Barack Obama has now received $605 million in campaign donations. Stop for a moment, close your eyes, and think about that. Six hundred and five million dollars. Six hundred and five million dollars. That’s more than two dollars from every single living American man, woman and child. That’s amazing. What’s not so much amazing and disgusting, however, is that ten percent of that has come from questionable if not foreign sources, and many of the examples of Obama’s blatant disregard of campaign finance laws are going unchecked. This, my friends, is why I was far from surprised when Obama broke his promise to take public financing. After all, why would he? He was pulling in more than $50 million each month at the time, mostly from donors who hadn’t even come close to the limits (not that he’s paying attention to the limits anyway). The long-term consequences of this, too, is equally clear — I cannot imagine another presidential candidate in the future taking public financing again.

Bernanke Endorses Obama
(FROM: The Wall Street Journal) While I agree with the Journal that something seems strange that such a traditionally apolitical figure, the Federal Reserve chairman, is thrusting himself into the presidential race with just two weeks to go before Election Day, I am not at all surprised. First, Obama is up in the polls, rather convincingly if you believe those sorts of things. Second, an Obama administration, with its hopes and dreams and aspirations of exponentially expanding government, would likely proportionally increase the power vested in the Fed. On the other hand, should McCain get in, there’s no guarantee he’d have a job anyway. Simple, really. Doesn’t do much for his credibility, but since when does anyone care about credibility anymore? If you lean to the left politically, after all, you have a fairly concrete and permanent “get out of jail free” card from the mainstream press. Heck, in the case of Barney Frank and friends, you get one quite literally.

Don’t Forget the Undecided Voters
(FROM: American Thinker) I’ve heard twice now, from two different plugged-in people, that a leaked memo from the Obama campaign has him leading by a meager two percent in Pennsylvania, a far cry from the more than ten point difference being currently reported by RealClearPolitics. My point, and really the bottom line of this article, is that we will not know who the next president will be until [hopefully] the late hours of the fourth of November. Listen, I don’t have a McCain/Palin sticker on my car because, frankly, I don’t want the word “PENIS” scratched into my hood by some granola-munching, patchouli-stinking, rarely-showered hippie, but that doesn’t mean I won’t be pulling the lever–actually, pushing the button–for McCain on November 4th.

Pat Buchanan: Tribal Politics
(FROM: Human Events) What I don’t get about this whole thing is that Colin Powell never was a conservative to begin with. I think that people assume that his military background lends itself to some sort of right-wing agenda, when I know several people in the military who identify themselves as liberal and generally vote democrat. So, was Powell’s endorsement based on race? Along with some sort of atonement for guiding us into the Iraq War, it absolutely was. And there’s nothing wrong with that! I absolutely love that we have come so far in the United States of America that a black man may very well be our 44th president. With such an ugly past for much of our 230-plus years, Obama’s candidacy is fantastic. Powell should be proud, and has every right to endorse the Illinois senator for whatever reason he chooses — I’d just like to see the mainstream press stop characterizing the endorsement as a testament towards Obama’s readiness to serve as Commander in Chief.

Behind McCain, Outsider in Capital Wanting Back In
(FROM: The New York Times) An absolutely disgusting hit piece. Where are the articles in the New York Times characterizing Michelle Obama as cold, or criticizing her physique? Where are the articles in the New York Times insinuating that the Obamas’ marriage isn’t strong, or painting Barack Obama as a bad, inattentive and selfish husband? They even mention several miscarriages, saying that she endured them alone, and bring up the Times’ hit piece on John McCain from this spring, the one which accused him of having an affair with a lobbyist without so much as one named source going on the record. Absolutely disgusting. The media is out of control. I had the chance while working for a small newspaper in South Carolina during the 2000 primary–I was a registered democrat then!!–to meet Cindy McCain and her husband. She had a short haircut, like Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner’s wife, but was extremely nice and gracious. It disgusts me to see the Times putting out a piece like this.

    Senator Bob Bennet from Utah is the Ranking Member (Republican) of the Senate Rules and Administration Committee. He may or may not know that his committee has been identified as a defendent in the Berg case. Diane Feinstein may not be shouting it from the rooftop if you know what I mean. I just sent him a letter (see below) asking him to investigate this matter quickly. I think we should all (especially any of you who live in his district!!) send him letters asking for his help. Please flood his email with letters so he understands that this is not just a crazy conspiracy kook but that there is legitimate and widespread concern out there.

    Here is the link to send him an email.

    https://bennett.senate.gov/contact/email_casework.html

    Below is the email I just sent him. Please, everyone–Democrats, Republicans, Independents–if you are concerned that our constitution is being trampled please let’s flood his email with letters of concern and beg him to help do something before its too late.

    Sen. Bennett,
    On October 6th, an amendment was filed in the case of Berg vs Obama, et al, Civil Action No: 08-cv-04083 in the District Court of Eastern Pennsylvania that adds the Senate Committee on Rules and Administration as a defendent in the case.

    http://dockets.justia.com/docket/court-paedce/case_no-2:2008cv04083/case_id-281573/

    The plaintiff, Mr. Berg states that this committee has the responsibility to ensure that Sen. Obama is, in fact, constitutionally eligible to be president of the United States. Evidence is mounting to suggest that Sen. Obama has falsified his affidavits of eligibility that he submitted when running for the Senate as well as for the Presidency. Mr. Berg also has evidence to suggest that Sen. Obama is, in fact, not a natural born citizen of the United States and may, in fact, have lost his citizenship when he was adopted by his Indonesian stepfather.

    Since Sen. Obama has consistently refused to produce certified copies of birth records and other documentation of his citizenship, there are millions of American citizens who are concerned that he is attempting to gain the highest office in the land through illegal, fraudulent means. In recent weeks, lawsuits have been filed in other states, including the State of Hawaii, asking courts to mandate that Sen. Obama and the DNC prove that he is eligible by producing the required birth records and evidence of citizenship. We fear we are headed for a constitutional crisis that will result in serious problems for the country.

    As the Ranking Member of the Senate Rules Committee, would it not be your responsibility to investigate this situation and ensure that Sen. Obama is, in fact, qualified to be President? We simply cannot wait for this situation to drag through the courts. If Sen. Obama wins the election and it is later determined via the courts that he is not eligible to serve and has falsified his eligibility affidavits, then Joe Biden will be the President. Obviously, this is not the will of the people since he has run for President several times unsuccessfully. Please help resolve this situation quickly before the election.

    Sincerely

    This was the letter I wrote to the editor at the NY Times:

    To the Editor:

    I found your October 17, 2008 article entitled “Behind McCain, Outsider in Capital Wanting Back In” to be completely distasteful and all around disgusting. First of all, what in hell does any of this have to do with the campaign? Secondly, where is your article on Barack and Michelle Obama and their private lives? If someone was writing incredibly intrusive articles such as this one about you, I’m fairly certain you would avoid the media much as Cindy McCain has been. You have even allowed this writer to go so low as to mentioning an affair that was never confirmed. Worst of all, you wrote about miscarriages that she had. I would love to see the women who write for the NY Times, or the ones married to the writers, have someone write a story in which their miscarriages are brought up. This was truly a disgusting, insulting, and infuriating article, and it’s sad that this is what the NY Times has lowered its standards to.

    Hopefully it’ll send a message. Additionally, if Obama has broken the public financing laws, couldn’t he be held accountable for that? Or is that just a nice fantasy land to be living in now…

    Jeff:

    We all appreciate your hard work in maintaining this website and your fight to keep the U.S. Constitution as the ultimate law of the land in the U.S.

    But all of those stories you posted are well, just yawn.

    There is no point in getting angry anymore or pointing our the one sidedness in the MSM.

    The time has come to organize and take America back which has been stolen from us by the extremist left wing PC socialist/communists.

    I met them both in 2000 in SC; they came to my brother’s funeral. He had been McCain’s SC campaign manager before he died. Cindy spent the entire evening with us after the funeral. Very nice!
