UNREAL!… IN LESS THAN ONE WEEK– TAXCUT PROMISE SHELVED

November 12, 2008

UNBELIEVABLE… DEMOCRAT’S ALREADY TALKING ABOUT SHELVING PROMISED TAXCUTS!

Remember that tax cut promise for 95% of (working or not working) Americans?

…It’s been shelved.

They’re still counting votes from last week’s election and already the media is excusing Obama from his promise to cut taxes!

The AP carries The Messiah’s water:

People want the tax cuts promised during the presidential campaign, but may be willing to wait while President-elect Obama takes on the larger issue of fixing the economy.

Eighty percent say trimming personal tax rates should be a goal when the new president takes office in January, but only 36 percent say the cuts should a very top priority, according to a new Associated Press-GfK poll. That was less than half the 84 percent who cited improving the economy as a No. 1 goal, and the 80 percent who said creating jobs should be a paramount task.

“I don’t think it’s going to work in this instance,” said Ryan Anderson, 31, a Democrat from Bloomington, Minn., who thinks tax reductions would have little impact on most families’ budgets. “That’s kind of like shooting a BB gun at a freight train.”

Obama promised to cut taxes for working families during the campaign.

That was quick.

Meanwhile… The post election stock market slide continues:

Wall Street continued to slide today.

Figures… Now Oprah Wants To Interview Sarah Palin

November 7, 2008

She refused to interview the popular governor before the election…
Now that her man won, Oprah is begging Governor Sarah Palin to come on her show.

Oprah said she wanted to keep her show free from politics but she campaigned for Obama and offered to put together his half hour TV special for him.
FOX News reported:

ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Gov. Sarah Palin hadn’t been back home in Alaska for a full day and her staff had begun fielding requests Thursday for postelection interviews, including from Barbara Walters, Oprah Winfrey, Larry King and others.

Palin had been expected at her office in Anchorage but later notified her staff that she wouldn’t show up after all. She remained at her home in Wasilla, located 40 miles to the north, but was expected in her office on Friday, spokesman Bill McAllister said.

“The intensity of all the interest is amazing. Everyone wants to talk to her,” he said.

Palin is coming off a whirlwind nine weeks of almost nonstop travel and campaigning since becoming Republican John McCain’s vice presidential running mate in late August. McCain and Palin lost Tuesday’s election to Democrats Barack Obama and Joe Biden.

Oprah has nerve.

Here’s a suggestion: Have Governor Palin and Senator Clinton on at the same time.
Now, that would be worth watching.

Change… Obama Announces Creation Of His Marxist Youth Corps

November 7, 2008

Here’s some hope and change for you…
Barack Obama will require students to partake in 50 of community service in middle and high school and 100 hours in college:

Don’t think for a minute that this won’t include some kind of indoctrination:

Obama will call on citizens of all ages to serve America, by developing a plan to require 50 hours of community service in middle school and high school and 100 hours of community service in college every year.

At one time in our history church groups would volunteer to assist their community.
Now, we have the Church of Obama.

Maybe this helps explain the sudden surge in firearm sales.

Related… This was timely.
Claudia Rosett wrote more about Obama’s ideas that subordinate individual freedom to the collective.
This is getting a little scary.

Reboot Congress adds this:

I would personally like to thank all of the college students that worked on Obama’s campaign. Since his plan calls for a hundred hours from each of you annually, you can continue doing so!

Figures. Obama’s Dear Auntie Onyango Is an Illegal Alien …Update: Obama Camp Silenced Auntie Onyango(?)

November 1, 2008

This explains why she was not used as a prop on the campaign trail.
It also explains why she refused to talk to reporters until after November 4th.

Obama’s dear Auntie Onyango is an illegal alien.

Zeituni Onyango lives in a disabled-access flat in a South Boston slum. She has lived in public housing for 5 years. (Times Online)

The AP did not mention anything about the legal status of long lost Uncle Omar who was evicted from his Boston home in 2000 for not paying rent.
Where can you find a good Ohio investigator when you need one?

Aunt Zeituni is now also living in Boston, and recently made a $260 campaign contribution to her nephew’s presidential bid.
Breitbart reported:

Barack Obama’s aunt, a Kenyan woman who has been quietly living in public housing in Boston, is in the United States illegally after an immigration judge rejected her request for asylum four years ago, The Associated Press has learned.

Zeituni Onyango, 56, referred to as “Aunti Zeituni” in Obama’s memoir, was instructed to leave the United States by a U.S. immigration judge who denied her asylum request, a person familiar with the matter told the AP late Friday. This person spoke on condition of anonymity because no one was authorized to discuss Onyango’s case…

The AP could not reach Onyango immediately for comment. No one answered the telephone number listed in her name late Friday. It was unclear why her request for asylum was rejected in 2004.

Michelle Malkin has more on Obama’s illegal family member fiasco.

No Quarters asks these important questions:

** How did she contribute a total of $260 to her nephew’s campaign in a series of small donations from her South Boston address if she is not a United States citizen?
** Are many illegal immigrants and foreigners submitting small donations to the Obama campaign in order to avoid scrutiny by the FEC?
** How does she qualify for public housing if she is not a United States citizen?
** How is Obama to be trusted to reform the immigration system if his relatives are breaking immigration laws and living illegally in this country?
** And why did the Senator not file a form I-130, a Petition for Alien Relative, on behalf of his aunt after her request for political asylum was rejected? As a United States Senator, he certainly could expedite the adjudication of such a petition.

Not only did Obama leave his Dear Auntie in squalor; he allowed her to stay in the country he desires to represent as President illegally.

Power Line has more on this latest Obama controversy.

UPDATE: Auntie Onyango was silenced by the Obama Campaign until after the election.
This is what Auntie Onyango told the Times Online who broke the story that she was living in a Boston slum:

She declined to answer most other questions about her relationship with the presidential contender until after the November 4 election. “I can’t talk about it, I just pray for him, that’s all,” she said, adding: “After the 4th, I can talk to anyone.”

That’s interesting.
Auntie Onyango was told not to speak until after the election.
Who might have told her that?

ZOGBY— McCAIN TAKES LEAD OVER OBAMA!!!!

November 1, 2008

** Gulp **

Drudge is reporting that McCain is making a strong move:

ZOGBY SATURDAY: McCain outpolled Obama 48% to 47% in Friday poll. He is beginning to cut into Obama’s lead among independents, is now leading among blue collar voters, has strengthened his lead among investors and among men, and is walloping Obama among NASCAR voters. Joe the Plumber may get his license after all…

The AP reported today that 1 in 7 voters are still persuadable.
This is NOT good news for the Obama Campaign.

UPDATE: Maybe this had something to do with the sudden McCain-Palin surge

Hip Hop Store Bribes Youths to Vote For Obama With Free Swag

November 1, 2008

More hope and change…
Akomplice gave free swag to youths who voted early for Obama.

The Colorado Secretary of State is investigating owners of a hip-hop store for bribing youths to vote for Obama.
My FOX Colorado reported:

Secretary of State Mike Coffman says the owners of a popular hip-hop clothing line called Akomplice may have broken the law by holding two parties geared toward getting young people to vote early in which free swag was given away after party-goers voted.

During the parties, Akomplice gave away free clothing, limo rides, stickers, and fake tattoos and offered discounts on sneakers and drinks to anyone who voted early.

Newt Gingrich Blasts LA Times For "Suspiciously" Suppressing Obama-Khalidi Tape

October 29, 2008

The LA Times is holding a video that shows Barack Obama celebrating with a group of Palestinians who are openly hostile towards Israel. Barack Obama even gives a toast to a former PLO operative at this celebration. If the American public saw this radical side of Barack Obama it is unlikely he would ever be elected president.
But, the media refuses to release this video.


Terrorist Bill Ayers— Barack Obama— Jew-hater Rashid Khalidi
There are also reports that terrorists Bill Ayers and his wife Bernadine Dohrn were at the Jew-bash.

Sean Hannity interviewed Newt Gingrich on the Obama-Khalidi tape tonight on Hannity and Colmes:

Newt Gingrich had this to say about the LA Times concealing the Obama-Khalidi tape:

I think that it’s very suspicious that I know the elite media is totally sold out to Obama and I know that the elite media is totally committed to Obama’s election but for them to hide a tape like this is pretty extraordinary.

My hunch is that what would be shocking would be very similar to Reverend Wright or very similar to Bill Ayers in what you would see was the kind of hatred and the kind of viciousness, not from Senator Obama let’s be very clear, I’m certain he was calm he was cool he was rational, but all around him that evening there were people who were people who would clearly destroy Israel in a heartbeat, And he didn’t walk out. He didn’t leave. And, I think that it makes it indefensible.

And, I think if the average American saw on top of Reverend Wright and on top of Bill Ayers and on top of ACORN and on top of the other things we’ve seen, if they saw the degree to which he was comfortable surrounded by hatred particularly hatred of America and hatred of Israel, I think that it would make them very sober.

Ace of Spades is offering 20K for the tape.

Charles Johnson notes the changing story by the LA Times:

LA Times excuses so far:

* “We did report on it. Why aren’t you happy with that?”

* “There are ethical problems with releasing the tape.”

* “No comment.”

Here’s the latest excuse- “We promised we wouldn’t release it.”
That isn’t what they told me 5 days ago.

And, there’s more…
John Gibson nails the LA Times for media malfeasance:

Grapevine Reports on LA Times Obama-Khalidi Tape

October 29, 2008

Brit Hume reported on the Obama-Khalidi tape that the LA Times is concealing from the American public on The Grapevine tonight.

The LA Times is holding a video that shows Barack Obama celebrating with a group of Palestinians who are openly hostile towards Israel. Barack Obama even gives a toast to a former PLO operative at this celebration. If the American public saw this radical side of Barack Obama it is unlikely he would ever be elected president.
But, the media refuses to release this video.

This outrageous controversy was reported on The Grapevine tonight:

Hat Tip Gregg
The Grapevine reported on the controversy and mentioned this blog:

The McCain camp has now joined those demanding The Los Angeles Times release a 2003 video that shows Barack Obama celebrating with a group of Palestinians hostile to Israel.

Peter Wallsten wrote in April about Obama’s association with former Palestinian operative Rashid Khalidi. The celebration was a farewell for Khalidi as he left Chicago for a job in New York. Wallsten called Khalidi a, “critic of Israel and advocate for Palestinian rights.”

He says, “A special tribute came from Khalidi’s friend and frequent dinner companion, the young State Senator Barack Obama… Obama reminisced about meals prepared by Khalidi’s wife… and conversations that had challenged his thinking.”

Wallsten writes that a young Palestinian read a poem accusing the Israeli government of terrorism. Another speaker likened Israeli settlers on the West Bank to Usama bin Laden.

Wallsten confirmed he has the tape, but told the political blog Gateway Pundit he does not plan on releasing it. The newspaper declines to comment.

The LA Times endorsed Democrat Barack Obama.

Barack Obama Admits: " I Chose My Friends Carefully… Marxist Professors and Structural Feminists" (Audio)

October 28, 2008

Barack Obama admitted that he was drawn to Marxists during his college days.
He wrote about it:

“To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists.”

He even talked about it:
(17 seconds)

Audio via Dan Caplis Reports

Bill Sammon wrote about Obama’s Affinity to Marxists today at Americans Election HQ:

Barack Obama laughs off charges of socialism. Joe Biden scoffs at references to Marxism. Both men shrug off accusations of liberalism.

But Obama himself acknowledges that he was drawn to socialists and even Marxists as a college student. He continued to associate with Marxists later in life, even choosing to launch his political career in the living room of a self-described Marxist, William Ayers, in 1995, when Obama was 34.

Obama’s affinity for Marxists began when he attended Occidental College in Los Angeles.

“To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully,” the Democratic presidential candidate wrote in his memoir, “Dreams From My Father.” “The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists.”

Obama’s interest in leftist politics continued after he transferred to Columbia University in New York. He lived on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, venturing to the East Village for what he called “the socialist conferences I sometimes attended at Cooper Union.”

After graduating from Columbia in 1983, Obama spent a year working for a consulting firm and then went to work for what he described as “a Ralph Nader offshoot” in Harlem.

“In search of some inspiration, I went to hear Kwame Toure, formerly Stokely Carmichael of …Black Panther fame, speak at Columbia,” Obama wrote in “Dreams,” which he published in 1995. “At the entrance to the auditorium, two women, one black, one Asian, were selling Marxist literature.”

Obama supporters point out that plenty of Americans flirt with radical ideologies in college, only to join the political mainstream later in life. But Obama, who made a point of noting how “carefully” he chose his friends in college, also chose to launch his political career in the Chicago living room of Ayers, a domestic terrorist who in 2002 proclaimed: “I am a Marxist.”

Big Lib Obama Donor Behind Background Checks On Joe the Plumber

October 28, 2008

Are you really surprised?
Big Obama Lib snoops into Joe’s background for dirt.

Helen Jones-Kelley, a maximum Barack Obama donor, approved illegal checks into Joe the Plumber’s records after he confronted Obama.
She denies any wrongdoing.

Good-bye America– Hello Tinpot Dictatorship.

The director of the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services approved checking into state records on Joe the Plumber after the final presidential debate.
The Columbus Dispatch reported:

Ohio’s inspector general is investigating why a state agency director approved checking the state child-support computer system for information on “Joe the Plumber.”

Helen Jones-Kelly, director of the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services, confirmed today that she OK’d the check on Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher following the Oct. 15 presidential debate.

She said there were no political reasons for the check on the sudden presidential campaign fixture though the Support Enforcement Tracking System.

HotAir has more on the criminal action.

UPDATE: A Toledo Clerk was charged with performing an unlawful search of Joe The Plumber’s records.
