Palin Denounces Anonymous Critics as “Cowardly”
(FROM: Associated Press) Good … enough said.

Obama’s Pick for Chief of Staff Tops Recipients of Wall Street Money
(FROM: OpenSecrets) So, we already learned on Friday from ABC News that Rahm Emanuel sat on the board of directors of Freddie Mac during the beginnings of the scandal, and was complicit in the board’s failure to recognize “red flags” in accounting and lending practices, and that he accepted more than $50,000 in contributions from the organization. Now, we’re learning that Emanuel was, just this year, the top House recipient of contributions from hedge funds, private equity firms and the larger securities/investment industry, and that he has received more money from individuals and political action committees in the securities and investment business than from any other industry since being elected to Congress in 2002 after a previous job as an investment banker. Barack Obama tapping this gentleman to assist him in fixing the American economy is kind of like asking me to teach a class on writing concisely, or Rosie O’Donnell to manage a Weight Watchers franchise.

Historical Perspective on Obama’s Victory
(FROM: Kiriath-Arba) In the wake of last week’s decisive electoral victory, President-elect Barack Obama and the Democrats will inevitably claim that they have a strong-as-steel mandate. He does not. They do not. While he does indeed have a mandate in the sense that he has been elected as our president-elect, Obama will likely be forced to govern from a little more center-left than he would otherwise prefer–though the venomous and tough-as-nails Rahm Emanuel was probably not the best choice for a man to insulate him from the demands for action from Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi–but the Democrats will regardless certainly tout the electoral vote margin as something bigger and more significant than it actually is. This well-written and well-researched piece from Kiriath-Arba provides, as the title suggests, an excellent overview of and historical perspective on Obama’s victory. Excellent, excellent work — precisely the kind of thing I’ve been writing about since the resounding defeat last week, precisely the kind of materials we should be sharing with our friends and neighbors in an effort to downplay the eventual glorification of the Obama administration and, in turn, promote the merits of conservatism.

An Obama Tilt in Campaign Coverage
(FROM: The Washington Post) Funny how, since the election is now over, we’re not hearing quite as many stories about the downturn in the economy, yet we’re actually starting to hear Tom Brokaw and others from the mainstream press questioning Obama’s “slightly creepy cult of personality,” Now, the Washington Post is actually admitting that it was biased toward Obama and unfair toward McCain. No kidding?!? Ohmigosh! I can’t believe it! Next thing they’ll tell us is that Barney Frank is gay.

Obama Announces Gun Ban Agenda Before the Final Vote Count is In
(FROM: NRA-ILA News) Even aside from the particulars surrounding the Tiahrt Amendment, the Assault Weapons Ban and more, the sentiments shown on Barack Obama’s transition Web site–specifically his “urban policy” agenda–as they relate to firearms are little more than the typical blame-shifting mentality shown by anti-gun folks for years. It’s the same mentality that paves the way for lawsuits against fast food restaurants for making customers fat, the same mentality which fuels the political left’s penchant for punishing those who work hard in the name of “social justice.” If there is a good thing to see in all of this, it comes from the recollection that Obama ran as a candidate who claimed to understand and respect the Second Amendment — and while it is no surprise that he plans to trample all over the U.S. Constitution here, too, the way to look at this is that Obama felt it necessary to run to the right while seeking the presidency … a sure sign that conservative principles, despite what the mainstream media says, have not lost their appeal.

Iranian President Advises Obama on Domestic and Foreign Affairs
(FROM: CNS News) Now, I’ll be the very first one to tell you that Barack Obama cannot control who sends him letters of encouragement and support, but it never ceases to amaze me just how similar the talking points of our enemies abroad are to those parroted by Democratic Party operatives and their various spokesmouths. Yet, the American voting public never seems to catch on to this trend, that people like Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro and Mahmoud Aquavelvajaad could very well be taking their talking points directly from Howard Dean and the DNC.

Why I’ll Miss President Bush
(FROM: The Wall Street Journal) I’ve never been an apologist for President George W. Bush. His tendency to turn his back on conservative values when it came to illegal immigration, to spending and to other issues couldn’t allow it. Still, he strikes me as a man who does indeed care intensely, a man who is not afraid to show his faith, his heart, and his humanity. I read about his low-key trips, sans media, to see injured soldiers at Walter Reed and about the tears he has shed while awarding the Medal of Honor posthumously, and I see a man who loves America dearly — a presidential quality I fear we’ll be sorely lacking in the near future. Regardless, President Bush hasn’t had an easy presidency by any means and has inspired more venom and vitriol than anyone else I can think of, but I do believe that, 20 or 30 years down the road, history will look kindly upon him.

Ryan for the Republicans
(FROM: The Wall Street Journal) In mentioning promising conservatives like Bobby Jindal, Sarah Palin, Tim Pawlenty, Eric Cantor and more, I often forget about Paul Ryan. It’s not intentional. I’ve said, over and over again over the past few days, that the conservative transmogrification of the GOP must begin with the tenets of fiscal conservatism, and there is no better man to effectively articulate the merits of fiscal conservative values than Paul Ryan. I sincerely hope that, when the dust settles in the fight for the future of the Republican Party, Ryan and other Barry Goldwater conservatives are the ones left standing.

    The MSM is a lot like a scorpion, it will eat its young at any given time. Now that the elections are over and that the Sarah Palin stories are beginning to wither ways, the media will be left twiddling their thumbs wondering whose skin to take off next. We’ll hear a couple of stories about the stupid white house dog, and about how “The One” is getting ready for the big move, but that will all get old very fast…then before he knows it, the MSM that was once his protector and impenetrable shield will become his worst nightmare. It has happened to every president ever since I can remember, and Mr. Teflon will be no exception. So, get ready to watch the circus play itself out and let’s get ready to take notes. We need to keep track of the fall-out, because come 2012, they’ll treat us like sheep again and sweep everything under the rug, because they think we’re stupid – we’ll that’s partially correct – about 65 million of us are! So, I can see how they think their tricks work.

    Thanks again for the interesting read. Keep up the great work.
    By the way, your stats on alexa are quite impressive. You are ranked under 10000 in the US. Pretty good for an independent blog. 94686 in the world. Looks like about two weeks ago you may have been closer to 45000.

    Ever think about running for Congress? Finish school, move out of the city area, if that’s where you still are, and you’d have quite a chance. I would vote for you.

    If any of you are expecting FoxNews to cover the Birth Certificate issue, don’t hold your breath. I just found this on their site:


    Facts don’t get in the way of Web political rumors

    The Facts: Obama plainly is a citizen because he was born in the U.S. In response to the allegations, Obama’s campaign in June posted the Illinois senator’s birth certificate on his campaign Web site, The nonpartisan Web site examined the original document and said it does have a raised seal and the usual evidence of a genuine document. On Friday, officials in Hawaii said they had personally verified that the health department holds Obama’s original birth certificate. Judges in Washington state, Ohio and Pennsylvania have dismissed lawsuits challenging his citizenship

    OK, so now we know that FoxNews will not be of any help to anyone in this matter, because they simply don’t believe it to be true.

  6. let us move forward says:

    Mr. O’s lack of respect for the Constitution demands a response from us, the US citizens that do not want to find our country with a new and improved constitution.

    We must continue to support the lawsuits and other initiatives to force him to provide information on his citizenship. We must not allow this issue or any other Constitutional issue to be forgotten, but must protect and preserve the document that prescribes our government’s structure and operation, and guarantees us the rights that preserve our freedom.

    It is easier to sit back and let him make “mistakes” that will “teach the country a lesson”. To challenge his citizenship and right to be President is political/economic suicide for anyone other than the public and individual citizens may face retribution for their actions. And if the challenge is unsuccessful and if if if the worst happens, those individuals that questioned him at the outset will be the first targets for revenge.

    If the challenge(s) fail(s), our best hope may be that he is inexperienced and may make a fatal mistake if he chooses if if if. Or it may be that he has decided to join the mainstream and can maintain it for four years. It is easier to see your country as “great” if you are in charge and surely he feels the pressure to perform the office for all African Americans. However, the lessons of your youth tend to slip into your actions, sometimes unconsciously.

    Oh, yes. We have Congress and the Judiciary to protect us too.

    This is our last chance to stop this fraud! Write your electors and tell them to make him prove citizenship. Also remind them of the Nationality Act of 1940 and that his mother expatriated their citizenship when she married a foreigner and moved to another country to live. Neither one have sworn an Oath of Allegiance to return as US Citizens.

    The electors decide if a candidate is eligible or not. They have to uphold the Constitution.

    Just Google – Secretary of State,(your state)- and you can at least contact someone to find out who the electors pledged to McCain are. There is most likely a link there to just find them on your own.

    LETS GET TO IT! Dec 15 is when the electors meet. Make them do their job!

    If the cartoon about Sarah Palin dragging McCain weren’t so true it would be really funny. Unfortunately, it quite real, however, what happened in this election will resonate for decades to come. Women voters turned their back on and joined in the mass hysteria of beating-up on Palin. Those women will soon see that the criticism they afforded Palin will become an ideological boomerang and come right back at them, here what I mean.

    1). No conservative man in his right mind will ever, ever choose a female candidate as a running mate in light of the way the media and women in particular treated Palin. So, the “glass ceiling” now became the “titanium ceiling.”

    2). All of the women out there that have little girls and that have told them they can grow up to be anything they want to be in America need to revisit this level-setting expectation and point out that they can be anything they want to be – as long as – you are a left wing liberal and can get the media to protect you like they did BHO.

    3). No conservative voter with any degree of intelligence will ever consider voting for a ticket that has a female candidate. Although mankind has a habit of forgetting way too soon that which has hurt us in the past, I don’t think this will be the case and subconsciously, none of us are going down the road of backing a lightning rod for political smears.

    4). On an interpersonal level it going to be years before many of us get past the realization that many if those women we know and interact with on a daily basis, who we thought to be so intelligent and skilled at dealing with complex matters, approached this election on such a superficial level and bought in fully to the mindless “Change” mantra. It’s going to be years before some of us trust the judgment of those women again.

    So in essence, there’s a hidden loser here – it’s the women of America that essentially voted themselves back into the 19th century. – How sad, but in time you’ll all see how true it will become.

    find it interesting the democrats want to bailout the auto industry immediately with additional tax dollars above and beyond the last bailout, before Obama takes office on January 20th. This would force the bailout to occur under President Bush’s watch. I think the republicans should wait until the Dems are in control of The White House and the new Congress so that Americans can see if they really know how to govern. Nancy Pelosi and Chris Dodd knew this was coming in 2007 and did nothing. They saved the bailouts for the election year, blamed Bush and the Republican Party for the state of the bad economy, and won the elections with a lie and with the help of mainstream media.

    You don’t publish this post – this is a note for you Jeff to cinsider.

    Jeff, although I think you’re doing a great job, can you – please – consider converting this blog into a “subject” oriented blog as apposed to a long sting of multi subject postings. It will be much better for us to contribute on a subject-by-subject basis and to share ideas and comments. The current system does not allow for a “reply” option to someone’s post and there is no effective way for us to search the different stories for a subject thread. For instance, if I wanted to discuss the multi State lawsuits, I’d have to go article by article and review the posting in each to see if anyone had any new information. A subject-by-subject approach would allow us to go to the “Subject Thread” on multi state lawsuits and share information that way.

    I am very appreciative of all the great work you do, but I believe this type of system will greatly improve you blog and your efforts.

    then the American people had better be taking screenshots of every website with Obama policies on it. As soon as he posts something that gets a negative reaction from “we the people” he will take it offline as soon as possible.

    Just as during the campaign he or Biden would say something that everyone would freak out about, and then the next day they would “revise” their statement and say “that’s not what I meant” — that’s EXACTLY what will go on during the next 4 years of an Obama presidency.

    Make sure to capture evidence of every stance Obama takes, because if it causes a stir he’ll erase it / delete it / block access to it / deny it / talk around it / CHANGE it.

    The man is all about “change”… especially when it comes to his own statements and positions.

    There’s one other Barry Goldwater type of conservative you didn’t mention – Ron Paul. He’s about as fiscally conservative and small-government as you can get and goes by the old conservative noninterventionist ideals of opposing U.S. involvement in foreign conflicts (as George Bush campaigned on in 2000).

    I seriously doubt he’ll run for president again in 4 years because of his age (73 I think), but just thought I would mention him as well. He’s been in congress forever and recently started up a new organization called the Campaign for Liberty.

    Judah Benjamin has another good essay at TD's blog ( on trying to disqualify Obama.

    Here's an excerpt where he comments on berg's suit:

    "Berg has zero credible evidence Obama was born in Kenya. It doesn’t even matter if he is right, he has nothing that would hold up in court. The rest of his case is based on the assumption that Stanley Ann Dunham obeyed Indonesian, International and US Law. She didn’t, because if she had this whole case would be unnecessary in the first place, Obama would be listed as a Naturalized US Citizen, which he clearly never has been. If he still is an Indonesian Citizen, Obama would find it almost impossible to Qualify. He certainly has been a UK & C, Kenyan and Indonesian Citizen and that should rule him out too. All of that should emerge as a byproduct of Berg’s Suit but Berg refuses to argue it and nobody on the Bench wants to hear it.

    The Judge in Virginia is correct, to this extent, that the supposition that Obama was born in Kenya is to be regarded as frivolous without more evidence. If he said anything else he would be wrong to do so. Any suit based on Berg’s will suffer from the fundamental problem that there is no evidence that Obama was born anywhere other than Honolulu, Hawaii. Indeed, his Indonesian School Record explicitly states that he was born there and I see no logical reason to assume that that is wrong."

    An Open Letter to Barack Obama:

    Are you a Natural Born Citizen of the U.S.?

    Are you legally eligible to hold the Office of President?

    Dear Mr. Obama:

    On October 24, 2008, a federal judge granted your request to dismiss a lawsuit by Citizen Philip Berg, who challenged your eligibility under the “Natural Born Citizen” clause of the U.S. Constitution to legally hold the office of President of the United States of America.

    Mr. Berg presented factual evidence to the Court in support of his claim that you are either a citizen of your father’s native Kenya by birth, or that you became a citizen of Indonesia, relinquishing your prior citizenship when you moved there with your mother in 1967.

    In your response to the lawsuit, you neither denied Mr. Berg’s claims nor submitted any evidence which would refute his assertions. Instead, you argued that the Court lacked the jurisdiction to determine the question of your legal eligibility because Mr. Berg lacked “standing.”

    Astonishingly, the judge agreed, simply saying, “[Mr. Berg] would have us derail the democratic process by invalidating a candidate for whom millions of people voted and underwent excessive vetting during what was one of the most hotly contested presidential primary [sic] in living memory.”

    Unfortunately, your response to the legal claim was clearly evasive and strikingly out of character, suggesting you may, in fact, lack a critical Constitutional eligibility necessary to assume the Office of President: i.e., that you are not a “natural born” citizen of the United States or one who has relinquished his American citizenship.

    Before you can exercise any of the powers of the United States, you must prove that you have fully satisfied each and every eligibility requirement that the Constitution mandates for any individual’s exercise of those powers.

    Regardless of the tactics chosen in defending yourself against the Berg lawsuit, significant questions regarding your legal capacity to hold this nation’s highest office have been put forth publicly, and you have failed to directly refute them with documentary evidence that is routinely available to any bona fide, natural born U.S. Citizen.

    As one who has ventured into the fray of public service of his own volition, seeking to possess the vast powers of the Office of President, it is not unreasonable to demand that you produce evidence of your citizenship to answer the questions and allay the concerns of the People. Indeed, as the one seeking the office, you are under a moral, legal, and fiduciary duty to proffer such evidence to establish your eligibility as explicitly mandated by Article II of the Constitution.

    Should you proceed to assume the office of the President of the United States as anything but a bona fide natural born citizen of the United States that has not relinquished that citizenship, you would be inviting a national disaster, placing our Republic at great risk from untold consequences. For example:

    · Neither the Electoral College on December 15, nor the House of Representatives on January 6 would be able to elect you, except as a poseur – a usurper;

    · As a usurper, you would be unable to take the required “Oath or Affirmation” of office on January 20 without committing the crime of perjury or false swearing, for being ineligible for the Office of the President you cannot faithfully execute the Office of the President of the United States;

    · Your every act in the usurped Office of the President would be a criminal offense as an act under color of law that would subject the People to the deprivation of their constitutional rights, and entitling you to no obedience whatsoever from the People;

    · as a usurper acting in the guise of the President you could not function as the Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy and of the militia of the several states, as such forces would be under no legal obligation to remain obedient to you;

    · No one in any civilian agency in the Executive Branch would be required to obey any of your proclamations, executive orders or directives, as such orders would be legally VOID;

    · Your appointment of Ambassadors and Judges to the Supreme Court would be VOID ab initio (i.e., from the beginning), no matter what subsequent actions the Senate might take as well as rendering any such acts by such appointed officials void as well;

    · Congress would not be able to pass any new laws because they would not be able to acquire the signature of a bona fide President, rendering all such legislation legally VOID;

    · As a usurper, Congress would be unable to remove you from the Office of the President on Impeachment, inviting certain political chaos including a potential for armed conflicts within the General Government or among the States and the People to effect the removal of such a usurper.

    As an attorney and sitting U.S. Senator, I’m sure you agree that our Constitution is the cornerstone of our system of governance. It is the very foundation of our system of Law and Order – indeed, it is the supreme law of the land. I’m sure you also agree that its precise language was no accident and cannot be ignored if Individual, unalienable, natural Rights, Freedoms and Liberties are to be protected and preserved.

    As our next potential President, you have a high-order obligation to the Constitution (and to those who have fought and died for our Freedom) that extends far beyond that of securing a majority of the votes of the Electoral College. No matter your promises of change and prosperity, your heartfelt intent or the widespread support you have garnered in seeking the highest Office of the Land, the integrity of the Republic and Rule of Law cannot, — must not — be put at risk, by allowing a constitutionally ineligible person to sit, as a usurper, in the Office of the President.

    No matter the level of practical difficulty, embarrassment or disruption of the nation’s business, we must — above all — honor and protect the Constitution and the divine, unalienable, Individual Rights it guarantees, including the Right to a President who is a natural born citizen of the United States of America that has not relinquished his American citizenship. Our nation has endured similar disruptions in the past, and will weather this crisis as well. Indeed, it is both yours and the People’s mutual respect for, and commitment to, the Constitution and Rule of Law that insures the perpetuation of Liberty.

    As a long time defender of my state and federal Constitutions, and in consideration of the lack of sufficient evidence needed to establish your credentials as President, I am compelled to lodge this Petition for Redress of Grievances and public challenge to you.

    Make no mistake: This issue IS a Constitutional crisis. Although it will not be easy for you, your family or our Republic, you have it within your ability to halt this escalating crisis by either producing the certified documents establishing beyond question your eligibility to hold the Office of President, or by immediately withdrawing yourself from the Electoral College process.

    With due respect, I hereby request that you deliver the following documents to Mr. Berg and myself at the National Press Club in Washington, DC at noon on Monday, November 17, 2008:

    “In a government of laws, the existence of the government will be imperiled if it fails to observe the law scrupulously. Our government is the potent, the omnipresent teacher. For good or for ill, it teaches the whole people by its example. Crime is contagious. If the government becomes a lawbreaker, it breeds contempt for law; it invites every man to become a law unto himself; it invites anarchy.”
    Olmstead v. United States, 277 U.S. 438, 469-471.

    Thank you for your understanding and cooperation in this matter.

    Jeff what is your opinion on Obama having Narcissistic Personality Disorder?
    This link is long but worth the read, it explains why so many of us feel Obama supporters are out of their minds.

    Everyone DEFINITELY needs to check out and

    …and get involved. The electors may be the only ones who allegedly ‘have standing.’

    Re the Atlas Shrugs site, in regard to the suit filed by Berg v Obama:

    Supreme Court Justice David Souter informed Mr Berg that his petition to stay the 11/04 Election was denied, but the Clerk also required the defendants (Obama and DNC)to respond to the Writ of Certiorari (which requires the concurrence of four Justices), by 12/01. At that time Obama must respond to the Court with an authentic Birth Certificate, after which Berg will respond.

    If Obama fails to do that, it could inspire the skepticism of the Justices, and they will have to decide what to do about a president-elect who refuses to prove his natural born citizenship.
    Possibly there could be a unanimous Court (en banc) decertifying the election if Obama refuses to produce his BC.

    Another attorney said he could not see that they could do otherwise without abandoning all credibility as guardians of the Constitution. He also said that the Court is very jealous of its power over the President, even over the Vice President.

    If the Supreme Court should decide it does not want to be the one to settle the case, then it would go to the Electors, who meet on Dec 15 to cast their votes.

    If the Electors go ahead and vote then it is finally up to the Congress to certify. One Senator and one Representative must bring up the question of illegitimacy and then a debate lasting up to 2 hours on the question can take place. It could be during this time that the concerned citizens could bombard their representatives re: the question of qualifications. That would, I believe, be the last resort. But lawsuits could still continue and keep the question in the background just as in the Clinton administration.

    Sign up here and follow directions for your state – We need to organize to contact the electors BEFORE Dec 15th! Letters and emails need to be flooded to the electors. Help out all you can and spread the word please!

    Why is it okay for Obama to be a bully and force President Bush through a media leak into a corner about Ford, GM and Chrysler? So what if Obama doesn’t want to have to deal with it on his watch. That’s the job he ran for. Is he now saying that he doesn’t want to do the dirty work? He doesn’t want to make unpopular decisions? Since when is it okay to push your responsiblity on to someone else.

    Oh, I forgot. America has gone so far left that Honor, Duty, and Others/America have gone by the way side of “me-me-me” thinking.

    The destruction of what a number of us hold near and dear has begun. Bully Obama is the kid on the playground with the most money and no one has been able to call in the principal in to expel him because they are all too afraid. Were I a Supreme Court Justice than a teacher.
