Pelosi Erases Gingrich’s Long-Standing Fairness Rules
(FROM: Human Events) This news actually came out on Monday, but I haven’t felt extremely compelled to spend too much time on it. After all, does it really come as a surprise to anybody? When has Nancy Pelosi, or when have any of those Democrats who consistently put party before country for that matter, ever been interested in actual fairness? They haven’t. They’re not interested fairness; they’re interested in volume, they’re interested in shouting down dissent rather than finding the testicular fortitude to engage in actual debate. That’s why Pelosi is shutting down avenues which allow the minority party to debate. That’s why you see liberals, and never conservatives, protesting different things en masse. That’s why Al Gore refuses to debate EU President Vaclav Klaus on Global Warming. That’s why I bite my tongue as often as I can when in unfamiliar company. That’s why Pelosi and her flunkies will inevitably go after talk radio by reinstating the so-called “Fairness Doctrine” — every attempt by those on the political left to compete with conservatives in that medium has failed. Volume, not fairness. That being said, I actually feel sorry for Barack Obama; here’s a guy who campaigned on sunshine, transparency and bi-partisanship, and he’s not even being given the opportunity to back down on those promises himself — Pelosi is doing it for him.

Jonah Goldberg: Who Are the Real Nazis?
(FROM: National Review) Just read it. If this conflict needs anything from overseas, it’s the right perspective. Goldberg provides just that. Beyond saying that, I’ve pretty much spelled out my thoughts on the matter over the past few days.

SEE ALSO:

Limbaugh: ‘Segregationist’ Sen. Reid Barred Burris
(FROM: Newsmax) I think it’s unfortunate that it took only a matter of seconds before the proverbial “race card” was brandished in the controversy surrounding corrupt Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s appointment of Roland Burris to Barack Obama’s vacated seat in the U.S. Senate, but considering Burris’ skin color and this nation’s unhealthy obsession with race, it was inevitable. Even more unfortunate is that, by initially stonewalling a man who appears to be well-qualified for the seat–so long as he is clear of any “fiscal relationship” with Blagojevich–one of our two major political parties has shown nothing but rampant ignorance, if not outright contempt, toward our Constitution. Still, because they’re Democrats, that really doesn’t surprise me. What amazes me, however, is that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid was pretty well shown to be a racist, yet we haven’t heard much from the press about why. As Limbaugh points out, if it had been a Republican who said the things Reid said (and Patrick Fitzgerald likely has on tape) and showed the prejudice he’s shown, you can guarantee that he’d be run out of town and given the Trett Lott treatment.

The Winter Gas War
(FROM: The Wall Street Journal) When Vladimir Putin’s Russia–I say that for a reason–baited Georgian forces to attack South Ossetia on the eve of the 2008 Summer Olympic Games, they did so for a reason. Unfortunately, much of Eastern Europe and the former Soviet republics rely upon The Bear for their energy needs, and Putin’s orchestrated incursion into Georgia, I feel, may very well have been done to remind them that the pipelines are his, that any heat in those cold winters comes at the discretion of the former–and soon-to-be–Russian president. This article doesn’t really go that far, but certainly offers not only a good perspective on the geopolitics of energy in that reason, but also emphasizes between the lines just how important an issue American energy independence is and should be.


Francis and Flynt Hustle Congress for Porn Bailout
(FROM: E! Online) Of course, this is a publicity stunt, and judging from the inevitable media coverage, it’ll work. Still, as two men who exploit people who screw each other, why not ask for a bailout from Congress, who has been steadily screwing all of us Americans for months–if not years–now.

Hyundai, the Free Market Studmuffin
(FROM: Chicago Tribune) Like the American automakers, who lose money like it’s their job, South Korean automaker Hyundai had a difficult end of 2008 in terms of new car sales as well. Still, instead of crying foul and asking for a handout, they did exactly what a good steward of the free market should do when current operations go stagnant — get creative and adapt. If you’ve been watching any college football, you’ve no doubt heard Jeff Bridges’ voice telling you about the program in television commercials. Lose your income in the year following your new car purchase, and bring it back. Sure, there are inevitably loads of restrictions, and sure, Hyundai may actually see some of their new cars driven back to the dealerships by an unshaven and downtrodden owner, but even those cars can be re-sold and they’ll undoubtedly see more traffic on their showroom floors because of attempts made to adapt to an uncertain economy. Bravo.

Ex. Fla. Gov. Jeb Bush Won’t Run for Senate in 2010
(FROM: Townhall) It’s a shame, but such a decision was equally inevitable. I like Jeb Bush. He looks to be more conservative than his father or brother, and certainly better on illegal immigration than the latter. People will say that “everybody says ‘no’” and that they expect him to go back on his word next year, but I doubt it. If Jeb wants to make a serious run at national office–and I hope he does–he needs to wait a little while, as the half-life of that dark shadow cast upon him by his brother is yet to be determined.

    Sun Yat-Sen, the ‘Father of Modern China’ and its first President, has a Hawaiian birth certificate, though he was BORN IN CHINA: http://aconservativeedge.wordpress.com/2009/01/07/sun-yat-sen-the-father-of-modern-china-who-was-born-cuiheng-xiangshan-county-guangzhou-prefecture-guangdong-province-china-but-has-his-certificate-of-live-birth-hawaii/

    Here’s a close up of the certificate, seemingly available to anyone who wants one: http://www.theobamafile.com/_images/SunYatSen.jpg

    Also, learn of George Washington’s PROPHETIC VISION OF AMERICA, given to him at his Mt. Vernon home, as recorded in his Prayer Journal:

    “If all of this seems like a great deal of trouble, think what’s at stake. We are faced with the most evil enemy mankind has known in his long climb from the swamp to the stars. There can be no security anywhere in the free world if there is no fiscal and economic stability within the United States. Those who ask us to trade our freedom for the soup kitchen of the welfare state are architects of a policy of accommodation.”

    I had a realization last night that, I fear, may answer all of the unbelievable events that have played themselves out over the past long year.

    Why is there not one person of “power” curious about Obama’s citizenship question (RNC, the President, The Supreme Court etc.)?

    Why didn’t any, in the Republican party, seem to fight for their ticket during the political race against the DNC, when there was ample ammunition?

    Where are the voices that should and would be screaming about the national debt?

    Something is happening, and after spending time with so many of you, on many different sites with curious, confused, but perfectly sane citizens (some republican, some democrat, but all feeling as if they had woke in a strange world, with an entirely different set of rules) I realized that because none of this makes any logical sense, I believe that there must be something even greater happening here.

    Last night, an article on WND caught my eye and an idea formed that made everything fall into place.

    It answered the question as to why those in charge are not concerned with the eligibility of PE Obama, the Constitution, the national debt, the party, or the U.S.A. for that matter.

    This is the title of the article:

    Kissinger: Obama primed to create “New World Order.”

    I believe that plans are already in place, and that those in charge have already started the “ball” moving in this direction.

    I do not know why or even if Obama himself has any significance in this plan or if he is just a good front man to represent America at this time (people project themselves onto him).

    I do know, however, that it answers many questions as to why the citizenship issue would not be an issue. America’s constitution would soon be of no significance, the national debt would be unimportant. Party or even country loyalty would be suspicious and frowned upon.

    I believe that we are being driven toward this new world blindly, but at the point that our masks are removed we will gladly choose to accept this option.

    Look at the ease in which the national debt and bail outs have been accepted and even ignored by the public. At first the numbers proposed were shocking. Now most people do not even listen choosing, instead, to change the channel in search of something entertaining to watch.

    Nobody in government has been speaking out about any of the “red flags” that have waved at every turn during this past year.
    That would be impossible in the “America” that we all knew to exist just a few years ago.

    I also believe that the war with Islamic terrorists is serving a great purpose, and will be what ultimately drives the masses to sign up readily for a “New World Order.”

    Islam will fall, those that want power will see to that, but it will be bloody and horrible until it does and this too will serve a purpose. Those left will be led to believe that this “New World Order” is important, has been our salvation and we will quickly fall in line assuming our “Citizen of the World” citizenships.

    This is why, I believe, we do not hear those we would expect to hear from, speaking out about the blatant injustices happening at this time.

    The Bush family, the Clinton family, the Cheney’s, so on and so on, politically and economically powerful families from this country and others would have something to gain from a “New World Order.”

    I am new to this hypothesis and newly interested in politics and do not have enough education in political history or international affairs. Perhaps some of you could add insight into my immature attempts at a possible explanation as to what is happening and how it all makes sense.

    One thing I am quite certain of. I am perfectly sane, as are the other thousands of American citizens that have posted comments on this, and many other websites, every one of them searching for an answer that makes sense.

    Myself a former Soviet citizen with no love lost between me and the KGB machine, I would strongly recommend to put political glasses away and look at the situation at a different angle. So called “pro-Western” Ukrainian leaders are a sorry pack of thieves who are unable to solve their country’s problems and hope to balance their sheet by stealing from the gas pipe and using the old “those who are not with us are against us” Leninist mentality to drag Europe and USA onto their side of the conflict.

    My opinion is, the Russians are well within their rights to turn the gas tap off to prevent open theft – because the alternative, to defend their property by the force of arms as most other countries would do, sounds much, much worse.

    How many zeros in a billion?

    This is too true to be funny.

    The next time you hear a politician use the
    word 'billion' in a casual manner, think about
    whether you want those 'politicians' spending
    YOUR tax money.

    A billion is a difficult number to comprehend,
    but one advertising agency did a good job of
    putting that figure into some perspective in
    one of it's releases.

    A.
    A billion seconds ago it was 1959.

    B.
    A billion minutes ago Jesus was still alive!

    C.
    A billion hours ago our ancestors

    were living in the stone age.

    D.
    A billion days ago no-one walked on the earth on two feet.

    E.

    BUT…
    A billion dollars ago was only 8 hours and 20 minutes, at the rate our government is spending money!

    While this thought is still fresh in your brain…

    let's take a look at New Orleans …

    It's amazing what you can learn with some simple division.

    Louisiana Senator,
    Mary Landrieu (D)
    is presently asking & amp; lt; B>Congress for
    250 BILLION DOLLARS
    to rebuild New Orleans.

    Interesting number…
    what does it mean?

    A.
    Well… if you are one of the 484,674 residents of New Orleans
    (every man, woman, and child)
    you each get $516,528!

    B.
    Or… if you have one of the 188,251 homes in
    New Orleans , your home gets $1,329,787!

    C.
    Or… if you are a family of four…
    your family gets $2,066,012!

    The African-American Secretary of State in Illinois said he wouldn’t sign the papers for Blogojevich’s Senate appointment and the Democrat controlled Senate said they wouldn’t seat Blogo’s appointment BEFORE Burris was chosen. If they would have done it anyway – then we could have cried racial bias. That being said, although I am a right wing conservative Illinoisan; I believe Burris is qualified and barring any illegal deals – he should be my junior Senator now that they have shown they wouldn’t let his race be the reason for going against their word in the first place. Of course I have no legal ground to stand on so that is just my personal opinion.

    I agree with ‘Anonymous’ who feels that a NEW World Order is in the works. We have heard this phrase over and over, from the elder President Bush, Kissinger and many others. When I was in college, I remember reading “The Late, Great Planet Earth” which discusses a new world order. I have also read about ‘The Carlyle Group’ which is an international association of powerful people who influence the financial markets. I need to go back and read some of this again in view of the present situation. I believe that there is a conspiracy among many powerful leaders to direct us to this new order….I have been amazed also that NO ONE in authority in our gov’t is concerned with BO’s citizenship issue and they are oblivious to the repercussions of these bailouts…the people we have chosen to represent us are selling us down the river…they have bought into the ‘plan’ to change our country forever and the American people, for the most part, are oblivious to what is happening. Thank God we have a few sites which bring out the TRUTH but they will be shut down soon when Pelosi gets her agenda thru. I pray for our country and I pray for leaders of integrity to come forth but they cannot to do it alone. The PEOPLE must stop this madness and we can only do that if we are educated and active!

    MORE ASSIGNED READING: TODAY IS THE DAY…ELECTORAL HAPPENINGS 1PM in DC

    here’s the plan…(changed to the 8th day of January)
    Counting electoral votes in congress

    § 15. Congress shall be in session on the sixth day of January succeeding every meeting of the electors. The Senate and House of Representatives shall meet in the Hall of the House of Representatives at the hour of 1 o’clock in the afternoon on that day, and the President of the Senate shall be their presiding officer. Two tellers shall be previously appointed on the part of the Senate and two on the part of the House of Representatives, to whom shall be handed, as they are opened by the President of the Senate, all the certificates and papers purporting to be certificates of the electoral votes, which certificates and papers shall be opened, presented, and acted upon in the alphabetical order of the States, beginning with the letter A; and said tellers, having then read the same in the presence and hearing of the two Houses, shall make a list of the votes as they shall appear from the said certificates; and the votes having been ascertained and counted according to the rules in this subchapter provided, the result of the same shall be delivered to the President of the Senate, who shall thereupon announce the state of the vote, which announcement shall be deemed a sufficient declaration of the persons, if any, elected President and Vice President of the United States, and, together with a list of the votes, be entered on the Journals of the two Houses. Upon such reading of any such certificate or paper, the President of the Senate shall call for objections, if any. Every objection shall be made in writing, and shall state clearly and concisely, and without argument, the ground thereof, and shall be signed by at least one Senator and one Member of the House of Representatives before the same shall be received. When all objections so made to any vote or paper from a State shall have been received and read, the Senate shall thereupon withdraw, and such objections shall be submitted to the Senate for its decision; and the Speaker of the House of Representatives shall, in like manner, submit such objections to the House of Representatives for its decision; and no electoral vote or votes from any State which shall have been regularly given by electors whose appointment has been lawfully certified to according to section 6 of this title from which but one return has been received shall be rejected, but the two Houses concurrently may reject the vote or votes when they agree that such vote or votes have not been so regularly given by electors whose appointment has been so certified. If more than one return or paper purporting to be a return from a State shall have been received by the President of the Senate, those votes, and those only, shall be counted which shall have been regularly given by the electors who are shown by the determination mentioned in section 5 of this title to have been appointed, if the determination in said section provided for shall have been made, or by such successors or substitutes, in case of a vacancy in the board of electors so ascertained, as have been appointed to fill such vacancy in the mode provided by the laws of the State; but in case there shall arise the question which of two or more of such State authorities determining what electors have been appointed, as mentioned in section 5 of this title, is the lawful tribunal of such State, the votes regularly given of those electors, and those only, of such State shall be counted whose title as electors the two Houses, acting separately, shall concurrently decide is supported by the decision of such State so authorized by its law; and in such case of more than one return or paper purporting to be a return from a State, if there shall have been no such determination of the question in the State aforesaid, then those votes, and those only, shall be counted which the two Houses shall concurrently decide were cast by lawful electors appointed in accordance with the laws of the State, unless the two Houses, acting separately, shall concurrently decide such votes not to be the lawful votes of the legally appointed electors of such State. But if the two Houses shall disagree in respect of the counting of such votes, then, and in that case, the votes of the electors whose appointment shall have been certified by the executive of the State, under the seal thereof, shall be counted. When the two Houses have voted, they shall immediately again meet, and the presiding officer shall then announce the decision of the questions submitted. No votes or papers from any other State shall be acted upon until the objections previously made to the votes or papers from any State shall have been finally disposed of.

    Hey Jeff -

    You forgot to mention that a Hyundai is one of the few cars you can buy that was actually MADE IN AMERICA. GM, Ford, and Chrysler all build their cars in Mexico using slave labor and cheap, subpar Chinese parts. In my opinion, that choice to manufacture in the USA was Hyundai’s best marketing move.

    Jeff,

    I feel weird writing this, and to tell you the truth, uncertain as to what to do.

    My mother came to my house for a rare visit (she lives in a different state) over the holidays. She watched me open a letter from my congresswoman, Jo Ann Emerson, and heard me exclaim “this is bullsh**”. When she asked me about the letter, I explained that I had written to both my state Senators and to my Representative in the House about my concerns over the eligibility issue. McCaskill’s letter directed me to Obama’s web site as a way of addressing my concerns (which I felt was inappropriate) and stated she looked forward to working with the Obama administration. Bond didn’t respond in any way, and then Jo Ann Emerson stated that “Obama’s legal matters have all been settled.”

    My mother asked me to stop writing to Congress and worry about raising my three children. I tried to get my mother to understand that it was concern for my children’s future that I wrote in the first place.

    You see, my mother spent quite a bit of time living in Cook County, Illinois, and she fears for my life because she is aware of the “politics” there.

    I assured my mother that all I had done was sign a petition and write some letters. I had not joined any groups or gotten any more involved than that, and that there were plenty of people who were doing a lot more than I who would be targets long before I would.

    But, to be honest, I am struggling with obeying my parent or doing as compelled, which is to call Emerson, Bond, and McCaskill TODAY BEFORE 1PM to place my name with others who object to the confirmation of electoral votes.

    Thanks for all your do with this site and for giving me a place to voice my concerns.

    God Bless America!

    DRAFT

    PETITION FOR REDRESS OF GRIEVANCES
    REGARDING THE FAILURE OF THE U.S.CONGRESS TO ENSURE THE CONSTITUTIONAL ELIGIBILITY OF BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA TO SERVE AS PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES BEFORE CERTIFYING THE VOTES OF THE 2008 ELECTORAL COLLEGE
    ON JANUARY 8, 2009

    INTRODUCTION

    WHEREAS, the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution provides, in part, that “Congress shall make no law…abridging the freedom of…or the right of the people…to petition the government for a redress of grievances”, and

    WHEREAS, this Petition for Redress is thusly submitted to Congress regarding the Congress’ certification of Electoral College votes on January 8, 2009,

    WHEREAS, this petition asserts that Congress certified the Electoral College votes without performing due diligence on the eligibility of Barack Hussein Obama, and thus failed to uphold their sworn duty to uphold the U.S. Constitution…

    FACTS

    WHEREAS, Article II of the United States Constitution specifies that “no person except a natural born citizen….shall be eligible to hold the office of the President of the United States”, and

    WHEREAS, the ‘natural born citizen’ requirement has been interpreted to require birth in the United States or its territories and to two American citizens, and

    WHEREAS, the 14th Amendment to the Constitution does not confer the ‘natural born citizen’ title on naturalized U.S. citizens, and

    WHEREAS, Barack Hussein Obama admits his father was a Kenyan National, and that at birth Mr. Obama was born of first allegiance to the British Crown, through the citizenship of his father under the British Nationality Act of 1948, and

    WHEREAS, Barack Hussein Obama admits he was adopted by an Indonesian National named Lolo Soetoro and evidence exists that Mr. Obama used the legal name “Barry Soetoro”, and

    WHEREAS, Barack Hussein Obama admits he is a ‘native’ born U.S. Citizen under the 14th Amendment;

    WHEREAS, Barack Hussein Obama signed notarized documents regarding his eligibility to serve as President under the U.S. Constitution, including sworn statements of his ‘natural born’ citizenship;

    WHEREAS, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi verbally and in written form certified to State Secretaries of States that Barack Hussein Obama was indeed eligible under the U.S. Constitution to serve as President without having seen key documentation, and

    WHEREAS, to date no legal authority has verified that Barack Hussein Obama is a ‘natural born citizen’ as required by Article II of the United States Constitution, and

    WHEREAS, Mr. Obama has sealed all of his records and expended nearly one million dollars in defending his right NOT to show that he is a natural born citizen and thus eligible to serve as President, and

    WHEREAS, despite this information that strongly suggests Mr. Obama is ineligible for the Presidency, and despite their oath to uphold the Constitution, their privilege to raise a Point of Order, no member of the Congress raised an objection or Point of Order in Congress on January 8th 2009, on the reading of each State’s electoral certificates of the total vote for Barack Hussein Obama II ( 3 U.S.C. Ch. 1, §15, §17, §19(a) (1), and §19), nor when the President of the Senate called for objections, and

    WHEREAS, while every member of Congress has an affirmative duty to ensure the protection of the U.S. Constitution, Congress willfully ignored the disqualifying information, the danger to our Constitution, the Country, and the Citizenry, and nevertheless certified the Electoral College vote for Mr. Obama;

    WHEREAS, Congress has violated the trust of the people by failing to conduct due diligence and verify the eligibility of Mr. Obama thereby endangering the Citizenry by precipitating a constitutional crisis.

    NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED THAT,

    WE, the undersigned, do petition Congress for relief and redress in the following manner:

    1. Verify beyond any doubt that Mr. Obama is a natural born citizen under Article II of the U.S. Constitution, specifically by refuting or affirming the following:

    a. Mr. Barack Hussein Obama II is not qualified to serve as President because he is not a natural born citizen as required by Article II, Section I of the Constitution, having “Foreign Allegiances” at birth and by adoption, by renouncing US citizenship, and by failing to provide unambiguous evidence that he is “a natural born Citizen” without other allegiance. In particular:

    i. Mr. Obama had first allegiance to the British Crown and to Kenya, being born a British Citizen under the British Nationality Act of 1948 and then a citizen of Kenya through his Kenyan birth father Barack Obama, Sr.

    ii. Barry Soetoro, a.k.a. Barack Obama, also has primary allegiance to Indonesia, having Indonesian citizenship by adoption Lolo Soetoro Mangunharjo, a citizen of Indonesia. By Constitution of Indonesia, Law No. 62 of 1958, Art. 2 (1), and as required to enroll in Indonesian schools. As evidenced by school records and travel to Pakistan in 1981, Mr. Obama retains his Indonesian citizenship.

    b. Mr. Obama has failed to produce unambiguous evidence that he is a “natural born Citizen” born to two U.S. citizens “in the allegiance of the United States” and that he has retained that exclusive allegiance to the United States.

    2. De-certify the January 8th Electoral College vote if Mr. Obama is found ineligible through Congressional examination;

    3. Invoke the 20th Amendment to appoint an ‘Acting President’ until Congress can agree upon a process to provide an eligible President;

    4. Seek whatever guidance is needed from the U.S. Supreme Court.

    5. Develop federal regulations and procedures to ensure that Presidential Candidates are natural born citizens and fully vetted for their eligibility to serve.

    Beware the cashless society – which is where we are rapidly heading. And since we have gradually been numbered for previous pragmatic matters, we will become more and more cogs in the great wheel of power by the few, and will only be permitted our goods and services via their methods of control – of us and the limited resources. If you decide to protest and go underground, get ready for a VERY simple existence. So, more “numbering” so that the person and the number unite to the point of obliterating the person. That has had preparation in the PC agenda – no differences, Stepford wives!

    It will be the future chaos that will appear to mandate that kind of control. Sadly this new inexperienced but trained leader of ours, (if there are not even a couple of brave patriots to stop him) – trained into actually believing that there is merit in chaos – will lead us like sheep to the slaughter. Throughout history, in such times created by weak, spoiled cultures, there is always only a remnant left to begin again in purity. I’m afraid that there just aren’t as many good (strong) to balance the evil (weak) around us today – so the world will get purified since evil can’t stand in the end. Surprisingly, as China gets bolder, Russia may very likely become one of our own allies! But, right now, what they’re asking for Ukraine’s subservience is an exorbitant price for energy. Bow to them and you’ll get a cheap rate.

    Re: the new world order – I think the formation of the EU in the way that it was done with no linkage to its very own real history, attempting to redesign it, with the kneecapping of the individual character of each country, began the psychology in that kind of thinking. Then, if you are unsuccessful on a small scale with erroneous thinking then naturally just enlarge it so even more can be miserable too!

    I just finished watching the electoral vote count in the joint session and as far as I can tell no formal call for objections was made. Some have mentioned that VP Cheney mumbled something about objections but since I did not record the proceeding have no way to verify this. What do you do when Congress does not follow the rules? There were rumors that some Congress people were thinking about objecting. I am thinking their spine is missing or they were just paying lip service. Political suicide did not look to favorable.

    They just announced Obama is now officially President Elect. No one stood up to demand to see his birth certificate, which probably means all the conservatives were silenced by telling them terrorists have nuclear bombs in U.S. cities they’ll detonate if Obama isn’t allowed to become President–the SAME STORY they’ll give to the Supreme Court.

    We’ve been sold down the river by an administration in cahoots with the New World Order (Bilderberg group, Illuminati, Council on Foreign Relations, Trilateral Commission, G8 or Group of Eight–they’re all the same thing–the elite Satan worshipping global power brokers in a struggle with God/Christ/the Holy Spirit against The Devil for possession of our souls. If you don’t believe me, do internet searches (but use http://www.scroogle.org/cgi-bin/scraper.htm instead of Google, Yahoo, etc. SO THEY CAN’T TRACK YOU). The Bible has prophesied this for centuries, but it’s amazing how quickly it’s all unfolding. They’re about to collapse the American currency as the next step.

    And Jeff, it angers me that you would mock Berg for his “stupid views on 9/11″ without researching the TRUTH before ridiculing him. I thought you researched everything before writing about it–and that should include giving your opinion on someone else’s views. Maybe now you’ll believe him, because he’s right. I stumbled across the truth a couple years ago.

    Pastor Manning of Atlah in Harlem is urging everyone to send a letter to Chief Justice Roberts and plead with him to defend our Constitution. I know many have already written to the SCOTUS but he is trying to get more letters by Jan. 17th….I support this brave man’s stand for his country and his God. The address is:

    Chief Justice John Roberts
    U.S. Supreme Court
    1 First Street, NE
    Washington, D.C. 20543
    Ask that the SCOTUS require BO to provide his birth cert., passport and college transcripts.

    I was wrong to call it “stupid.” I usually don’t dismiss other views that way. I cannot help but feel strongly about that issue, though, and I get a little bit emotional.

    Regardless, I do disagree with him on it.

    All of these seats will be kept “safe and warm” for the arses that are sitting in them today if the Republican party does not figure out a way to capture the “deceased” voting block. Dead people always seem to vote democrat!

    Sometimes you “get it” sometimes you don’t. We should all be happy Jeb Bush decided not to inflict more Bush terrorism on America, haven’t we had enough? Your party loyalty smacks the face of common sense often when you back these neo conservative excuses for Republicans. It’s OK to think for yourself and not back everything that comes out of the mouth of the current regime. Backing any Bush could never be confused with Conservatism. Going to war unprovoked and undeclared, huge government, Patriot Act, bail outs. That’s not Republican traditional value that’s extreme radical neo con speak. No matter what happens in America the moment you adopt new dogma that contradicts traditional views you are not acting as a Republican but an unrecognizable hybrid the country should rid itself of if we want to keep the Republic.

    Back to the basics is all I can say. Small government, sound Constitutional money, liberty, Constitutional law and a sovereign nation. Anything else and you have stepped away from Republican values and adopted an agenda to destroy the party.

    Tradition doesn’t change. When it does you should be suspect. Go back to the days of Reagan and remind yourself what we use to stand for. And never speak of the Bush’s again. Our party was in error. Lets let this error of insanity pass and lets get back to our traditional conservative roots. We made a mistake, if we admit it and go on we may have a chance, if we don’t we are subject to repeat it. Isn’t it bad enough we are responsible for the worst president in American history? Can’t we lick our wounds and just regroup and remember what we stand for?

    —-Hey Jeff -

    You forgot to mention that a Hyundai is one of the few cars you can buy that was actually MADE IN AMERICA. GM, Ford, and Chrysler all build their cars in Mexico using slave labor and cheap, subpar Chinese parts. In my opinion, that choice to manufacture in the USA was Hyundai’s best marketing move.

    January 8, 2009 11:14 AM—–

    This post is not entirely correct.. I am from a auto-making family; my father is retired from GM and my brother works for a company that makes parts for Ford. While some parts are made in other countries, (Hyundais have them also) there are MANY plants in the USA. (Why else would the UAW still be around???) And GM and Ford are US based companies, for now. (Chrysler is questionable.)

    To Anonymous Re: New World Order

    The UN is the force behind the NWO, and Pelosi, Reid, Obama, and many others both Dem and Rep have decided to become WORLD leaders rather than mere national leaders.

    The website…

    http://www.sovereignty.org/

    is a UN watchdog group and has a GREAT deal of valid info on this.

    In fact, the multi-billion dollar land grab by Harry Reid Friday will cede near 40 million acres of once private property to the UN as Global Heritage Areas where it will be illegal for humans to enter at all.

    Read what Sovereignty.org has to say. It will open your eyes and explain a LOT.

    Ooops…

    I said 40 million acres of land in previous post. It should be 4 million. It is still $10 billion.

    Sorry….
