Did Obama Identify His REAL Father in This Video?

Many of you are aware that Conneticut's Attorney General, Richard Blumenthal, lied about his service in Vietnam, and now a video has been circulating in which Barack Obama claims his father served in World War II.  Of course, this is impossible because his "supposed" natural father, and his step-father, would have been young children during the war.

Snopes.com assumes that Obama misspoke.  They believe he said "father" when he probably meant to say "grandfather".  Indeed, Stanley Dunham did serve in WWII.  However, on February 14, 2010, award-winning author Jack Cashill wrote an article, A Further Inquiry Into Obama's Origins, in which Cashill presents some evidence suggesting that Stanley Dunham may have fathered Barack with a local black woman.  Here is Cashill's hypothesis:
Obama tells us in Dreams that Gramps frequented otherwise all-black bars and hung out with the card-carrying communist Frank Marshall Davis, an African American with Kansas and Chicago roots. In communist circles, the sharing of sex partners was not uncommon.

If a black woman, perhaps a friend of Davis's, gave birth to a child of Dunham's, Barack Sr. would have obliged the Dunhams by marrying Ann, and claiming paternity in return for all the potential benefits of having an American wife and baby.

We also know that Stanley Dunham so desperately wanted a boy that he named his only child "Stanley Ann." Raising the young Obama would fulfill that desire. It would also explain the special relationship between him and Obama and the subsequent coolness of Obama’s grandmother, Madelyn Dunham or “Toot,” to the whole charade. It might also explain Ann’s distance from her presumed son whom she would desert for long periods to advance her career.

This theory makes sense of the secret marriage in Maui, Stanley’s enduring fondness for Barack Sr., the powerful resemblance between Stanley Dunham and Obama, and the Dunhams’ apparent willingness to subsidize mother and baby in Seattle. 
 This begs the obvious question, "Did Obama tell the truth about his paternity in this video?"  You decide.

Join the 9/11 Honor Guard

The anniversary of 9/11 is fast approaching.

Even though the media annually reminds us, to one degree or another, about the events of that horrific day when innocent American citizens and our country were attacked by an act of war, we as individuals need to do more than just sit in front of the television.  Each of us needs to take a proactive step to honor the memories of those we lost and to support their families.

I urge you to join what I like to call the "9/11 Honor Guard" with one simple action.  On the morning of 9/11, please hoist the American flag at every home, apartment, and business.  Spread the word between now and that momentous date, so that on that day, the flag will wave from shore to shore across America.

Boot Barney Frank:  Support GOP challenger Sean Bielat
By Michelle Malkin
August 30, 2010

Spread the word and send your money. Corruptocrat Barney Frank has a strong GOP challenger who needs your help in advance of the September 14 primary.

His name is Sean Bielat. He’s a businessman. He’s a Marine. He’s a young father fed up with “systemic corruption” in arrogant Washington. He opposes cap-and-tax, will fight other oppressive Obama eco-policies that are squeezing fishermen, supports a strong national defense, and believes “It’s time for our leaders to return to and abide by the Constitution.” He launched a RetireBarney campaign back in April. Bielat’s latest campaign ad roasts Frank for his recent Fannie-Freddie flip.

Sharpton Rally Participants Enlisted By Dept. of Education

Education secretary urged his employees to attend Sharpton's rally
By Lisa Gartner
Washington Examiner
August 20, 2010

President Obama top education official urged government employees to attend a rally that the Rev. A Sharpton organized to counter a larger conservative event on the Mall.
Although the e-mail does not violate the Hatch Act, which forbids federal employees from participating in political campaigns, Education Department workers should feel uneasy, said David Boaz, executive vice president of the libertarian Cato Institute.

"It sends a signal that activity on behalf of one side of a political debate is expected within a department. It's highly inappropriate ... even in the absence of a direct threat," Boaz said. "If we think of a Bush cabinet official sending an e-mail to civil servants asking them to attend a Glenn Beck rally, there would be a lot of outrage over that."

Inevitable & Illegal: Obama Uses IRS To Penalize Political Opponents

Dont' agree with Obama? Get ready for IRS probe
By Bob Unruh
August 29, 2010

The Internal Revenue Service has delayed approval of tax-exempt status for a private organization and is reviewing its educational work, telling a lawyer for the foundation that it must be examined by Washington because its activities may "contradict the administration's public policies."

The allegation is contained in a federal lawsuit filed in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania by Z STREET, a Merion Station, Pa., group that educates on the statehood and status of Israel.

"Not only is it patently un-American but it is also a clear violation of the First Amendment for a government agency to penalize an organization because of its political position on Israel or anything else,". . .

White House Preparing to Fund The Muslim Brotherhood With Stimulus Grants

Coming August 31: 'Direct Access' Stimulus Grants for the Muslim Brotherhood
By Christine Brim
August 29, 2010

Think of it as ACORN reborn, with a slice of Jihad on the side.

On August 31, this coming Tuesday, the Muslim Brotherhood-associated “Coordinating Council of Muslim Organizations” (CCMO) will bring 25-30 Muslim leaders of 20 national Muslim groups to attend a special workshop presented by the White House and U.S. Government agencies (Agriculture, Education, Homeland Security, Health and Human Services etc.) to provide the groups “funding, government assistance and resources.”  The workshop will apparently provide special access for these Muslim Brotherhood organizations: the organizers pledge to provide “direct access” and “cut through red tape.” Government and Muslim groups will hold an Iftar dinner (breaking the fast of Ramadan) after the workshop.

The event was announced in an email newsletter sent August 27 by the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation terrorism finance trial, long associated with the Muslim Brotherhood, the global Islamist network . . .

Dr. David Ramsay Defined Natural Born Citizens In 1789

First and foremost, a hat tip goes to UndeadRevolution for being the first university historians to locate David Ramsay's 1789 Dissertation on the nature of citizenship, which you will be able to read in its entirety below. The title links to the original document, which UR published on Scribd.

Below the link is an embedded copy of my "translation" of the original. In the original document, the letter "s" resembles today's letter "f", so I have removed that visual stumbling block by retyping the entire document. In addition, I have colored key sentences within the document, such as the one below. Note the use of plural parentage.  Both parents must be citizens for the child to be defined as "natural born".  Interestingly, in the dissertation Ramsay also discusses the "precision" of language used in the Constitution.
The citizenship of no man could be previous to the declaration of independence, and, as a natural right, belongs to none but those who have been born of citizens since the 4th of July, 1776.
Few people know who David Ramsay was, and the role he played during the formative years of the United States. Ramsay figured very prominently. Among other skills, he was a prolific historical author of the American Revolution. A few years after the Constitution was ratified, Ramsay wrote a dissertation explaining the means for acquiring citizenship in the U.S. during and after the revolution. 

Although Ramsay's words have virtually been forgotten over the past two-hundred years, his dissertation should be more widely read since his comments shed light on Barack Obama's citizenship status. Although Obama was born in Hawaii, his father was not a U.S. citizen. Thus Ramsay's statements give credence to those who question Obama's eligibility because he holds dual citizenship with the U.K.  Even Obama's website admits:  "Barack Obama Jr. was both a U.S. citizen (by virtue of being born in Hawaii) and a citizen of the United Kingdom and Colonies (or the UKC) by virtue of being born to a father who was a citizen of the UKC."  In a nutshell:  Barack Obama is a Citizen, but he is not a natural born Citizen.

Ramsay 1789 Dissertation on Citizenship

Final note:  For those who tout the 14th Amendment as "solving" the question of Obama's citizenship status, read the amendment again, and notice that it does not mention the precise term "natural born"; it only mentions "citizen".  Next, acquaint yourself with the history behind the 14th Amendment.

Muslim Apostates Call on Western Liberals To Support Their Freedom To Choose Religions

The Age of Apostasy
By Richard Fernandez
August 28, 2010

Readers may recall Maher El-Gohary, the subject of a post about a month ago. He was an Egyptian Muslim who decided to convert to Christianity, which resulted in a spate of death threats against him.  Gohary attempted to escape the fate of an apostate by trying to emigrate to Australia, an application which was promptly denied. Although Western intellectuals believe Christianity is in decline, it is by some accounts the fastest growing religion in the world. China may soon be have the world’s biggest population of Christians. Inevitably, some of those who decide to become Christians are now Muslims. Apparently El-Gohary’s problem is quite widespread. Apostasy is becoming a global problem and a number of protests have been scheduled in cities throughout the world to support the right of Muslims to change their religion. I attended the first of these at Martin Place in Sydney and was surprised to hear Barack Obama’s name mentioned in connection with the El-Gohary case. More on this later, but in the meantime, I listened to Mark Durie’s  explanation on the subject.
Right now the short term goal of the apostates is to force Western liberals to live up to their own book of rules by showing up at their self-righteous festivals with a copy of Article 18 of the cherished “United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights.” The simple act of coming out of the shadows and into the public light creates a huge dilemma for the liberal narrative. Once they recognize that apostates exist and have legitimate rights, it becomes very difficult to avoid further and more embarrassing questions.

Mexico Travel Warning From the U.S. Department of State

Travel Warning:  U.S. Department of State
Bureau of Consular Affairs
August 27, 2010

The Department of State has issued this Travel Warning to inform U.S. citizens traveling to and living in Mexico about the security situation in Mexico.  The authorized departure of family members of U.S. government personnel from U.S. Consulates in the northern Mexico border cities of Tijuana, Nogales, Ciudad Juarez, Nuevo Laredo, Monterrey and Matamoros remains in place.  However, based upon a security review in Monterrey following the August 20, 2010 shooting in front of the American Foundation School in Monterrey and the high incidence of kidnappings in the Monterrey area, U.S. government personnel from the Consulate General in Monterrey have been advised that the immediate, practical and reliable way to reduce the security risks for children of U.S. Government personnel is to remove them from the city.  Beginning September 10, 2010, the Consulate General in Monterrey will become a partially unaccompanied post with no minor dependents of U.S. government employees. This Travel Warning supersedes the Travel Warning for Mexico dated July 16, 2010 to note the changing security situation in Monterrey.

Fascists Use Sadism As A Tactic

By James Lewis
August 29, 2010

In his book  Liberal Fascism Jonah Goldberg defines "fascism" as an economic and political system. There's nothing wrong with that, but it misses a vital truth about Mussolini, Hitler and Tojo, Saddam Hussein and Ahmadinejad: The political use of sadism to recruit millions of followers in a campaign of  pleasurable punishment against a scapegoated person or group. Read about the Japanese rape of Nanking, if you can stand it, and you'll see thousands of literal rapes as well as sadistic torture and killing of Chinese people by Japanese soldiers as a matter of policy and for psychological satisfaction.

In sadistic warfare it is essential to see the conquered enemy suffer. For sadistic regimes it is not enough to win a war; it is at least as important to see the pain of the victims. If you open your eyes to this very nasty aspect of human behavior, you'll see it, not just in news headlines about sexual crimes, but in certain political and media tactics as well.

Google Maps Misplaces Lincoln Memorial

A curious thing has been happening on Google Maps -- the Lincoln Memorial is being misplaced in favor of the Franklin D. Roosevelt Memorial, which is a good half a mile south of the more famous memorial.

According to the Geographic Travels blog, this "misplacement" has been happening for about two days now. Typing "Lincoln Memorial" into the regular Google search bar brings up a number of listings related to the Lincoln Memorial, yet shows a map of the Franklin D. Roosevelt Memorial.

Music video: My Land is Kenya - You'll Always Stay in My Heart

Today I read an article in The Standard by Peter Ndoria.  He writes about the activity underway to celebrate Kenya's new constitution.  In particular, he describes the music and life of singer Wyclef Jean, the man who hoped to be "the Obama of Haiti".  Unfortunately for Jean, Haiti's Electoral Council rejected his candidacy because even though he was born in Haiti, his residency in the US disqualies him as a Presidential candidate.  Ndoria says:
Until last week, Jean hoped to be the Obama of Haiti but an Electoral Commis that in today’s globalised world, a Haitian President can be brought up in the USA cut the dream short. They just need to look up North, at White House where the resident is of Kenyan origin and Indonesian upbringing.
Ndoria begins the article by describing Roger Whittaker's song, "My Land Is Kenya", which is considered one of Kenya's most patriotic songs.  However, Ndoria now likes to think of Jean's music as supplanting Whitaker's.  I had never heard Whitaker's song before, but I have found it and embedded the video below.  Whitaker has a great voice, and the song is very nice.

Federal Leaders Driving America Over the Financial Cliff

The Most Fiscally Irresponsible Government in U.S. History
By Mortimer B. Zuckerman
U.S. News & World Report
August 26, 2010

There is an instinctive conclusion among the American public that President Obama's stimulus package has failed to create a sustained recovery. Unemployment has increased, not declined; consumers have retrenched; housing starts have crashed along with mortgage applications; and there is a fear that a double-dip recession may very well be in the pipeline. The public perception, reflected in Pew Research/National Journal polls, is that the measures to combat the Great Recession have mostly helped large banks and financial institutions, and that's a view common to Republicans (75 percent) and Democrats (73 percent). Only one third of either political leaning thinks government policies have done a great deal or a fair amount for the poor.

Both Gov. Jindal and Barack Obama Do Not Qualify As a "natural born Citizen"

Republican Governor Bobby Jindal's parents were both foreigners when he was born in America, so the content of this video about Barack Obama not meeting the definition of a "natural born Citizen" because his father held British citizenship, also applies to Gov. Jindal.  Those of us who argue Obama isn't eligible will make the same arguments about Jindal.  We will at least be consistent, and you can bet money the lamestream media will suddenly sing an "enlightened" tune if and when Jindal runs for President solely because he's a Republican.

Thomas Sowell: Dismantling America

The following editorials recently appeared in numerous publications, and respresent some of Dr. Sowell's analysis in his new book, Dismantling America.

Dismantling America - Part I
By Thomas Sowell

"We the people" are the familiar opening words of the Constitution of the United States-- the framework for a self-governing people, free from the arbitrary edicts of rulers. It was the blueprint for America, and the success of America made that blueprint something that other nations sought to follow.

At the time when it was written, however, the Constitution was a radical departure from the autocratic governments of the 18th century. Since it was something so new and different, the reasons for the Constitution's provisions were spelled out in "The Federalist," a book written by three of the writers of the Constitution, as a sort of instruction guide to a new product.

The Constitution was not only a challenge to the despotic governments of its time, it has been a continuing challenge-- to this day-- to all those who think that ordinary people should be ruled by their betters, whether an elite of blood, or of books or of whatever else gives people a puffed-up sense of importance.

Dismantling America - Part II

"We the people" are the central concern of the Constitution, as well as its opening words, since it is a Constitution for a self-governing nation. But "we the people" are treated as an obstacle to circumvent by the current administration in Washington.

One way of circumventing the people is to rush legislation through Congress so fast that no one knows what is buried in it. Did you know that the so-called health care reform bill contained a provision creating a tax on people who buy and sell gold coins?

You might debate whether that tax is a good or a bad idea. But the whole point of burying it in legislation about medical insurance is to make sure "we the people" don't even know about it, much less have a chance to debate it, before it becomes law.

Dismantling America - Part III

One of the few campaign promises that Barack Obama has kept was this: "We are going to change the United States of America!"

As in many other cases, those who were thrilled by the thought of "change" seldom seemed to consider whether it would be a change for the better or for the worse. True believers in the Obama cult assumed that it had to be a change for the better.

Now it is slowly dawning on more people that it is a change for the worse-- runaway government spending, under the banners of "stimulus" and "jobs" is not stimulating anything except political pay-offs to special interests. As for jobs, the percentage of the population with jobs keeping on declining, even as the administration points to all the jobs it is creating.

Dismantling America - Part IV

How did we get to the point where many people feel that the America they have known is being replaced by a very different kind of country, with not only different kinds of policies but very different values and ways of governing?

Something of this magnitude does not happen all at once or in just one administration in Washington. What we are seeing is the culmination of many trends in many aspects of American life that go back for years.

Neither the Constitution of the United States nor the institutions set up by that Constitution are enough to ensure the continuance of a free, self-governing nation. When Benjamin Franklin was asked what members of the Constitution Convention were creating, he replied, "A republic, madam, if you can keep it."

NBRA President Speaks Out In Support Of Dr. Laura

The Lesson of Dr. Laura - Impeach Obama?
By Frances Rice

Frances Rice is a retired Army Lieutenant Colonel, a lawyer and chairman of the National Black Republican Association.  She can be contacted at NBRA.

Since zero tolerance for those who hurt blacks is the lesson learned from the Dr. Laura Schlessinger N-word controversy, then the question becomes should President Barack Obama be impeached for the massive hurt he inflicted on black Americans with his corrupt failed socialism?

There is abundant evidence that Obama has repeatedly violated the “Schlessinger Standard” that justifies driving from the public square all who harm blacks.

In his book “Dreams from My Father”, Obama describes what he and other Democrats do to poor blacks as “plantation politics” – a strategy that condemns blacks to dependency on government handouts and generational poverty.  Obama and the Democrats have built their power base on the backs of poor blacks and want to keep blacks poor, angry and voting for Democrats.

Stark details about the crisis in black communities created by the socialist policies of Obama and his fellow Democrats are provide by Phillip Jackson in his article ”Black America loses gamble in electing first black president.”  Jackson opines that “Black America mistakenly traded the future of its young black men for a black president.”

Further, Jackson points out how black families are in deep despair, with 70% of black children born into single, female-headed households.  Jackson reveals the fact that black men are living beyond a “state of emergency.”  The black male population is only 1% to 3% on many major college campuses, while black men comprise up to 50% to 80% of the prison rolls, even though they are only 7% of the total population in the United States.  A report from the National Center for Children in Poverty shows that 35% of black children live in poverty.  In the ten most populated states, "rates of child poverty among black children range from 26% in California to 51% in Ohio."

In the face of the dismal conditions in black communities, Obama cut funding for historical black colleges.  He ended school choice scholarships in the District of Columbia and sent poor black children back to failing schools, showing that he cares more about the special interest of teachers unions than he does about poor black children.  He denied thousands of black farmers their full court award of over three billion dollars that they were awarded from a discrimination law suit and caused many black farmers to lose their farms.  Obama’s out-of-control spending killed private-sector jobs and created nearly twenty percent black unemployment.

Since Obama became president, an ignominious end has come to the Boys Choir of Harlem after 40 years of award-winning singing, starting in 1968, by young performers with world-class voices who had emerged from some of the most difficult neighborhoods of New York.  Many of the choir’s materials, like copies of handwritten scores and its trademark burgundy blazers, now sit in black garbage bags and open boxes in a church’s damp dirt-floor basement, amid overturned tables and sacks of plaster of Paris.

Another casualty of the Obama economy is the Ebony Fashion Fair starring black models, a show sponsored by the Johnson Publishing Company that also publishes Ebony and Jet magazines. The Miami Herald described the 50-year-old fair as a traveling style show that showcases the work of dozens of designers from around the world, while also raising money for scholarships, cancer research and local charities in the areas where it stops.

The pain wreaked by Obama and Democrats on poor blacks dwarfs any smarting felt by black Americans from Schlessinger’s tirade on her talk show, using the N-word to demonstrate the hypocrisy of blacks freely using the N-word while whites are forbidden from exercising the same freedom of speech.

In his article “Dr. Laura Got it Right About the N Word” Earl Ofari Hutchinson provides an unvarnished analysis of Schlessinger’s actions when he wrote the following.

“[S]he got it right about the word, or more particularly who uses it, condones it, and even glories in it. And that’s the legion of black comedians and rappers that have virtually canonized the word.  They sprinkle the word throughout their rap lyrics and comedy lines; and black writers, and filmmakers go through lengthy gyrations to justify using the word.  During a panel discussion at the Summer Television Critics Association tour in 2005, Aaron McGruder, creator of the popular comic strip, Boondocks, defiantly told the audience that he’d use the N’ word as much as he pleased in his comic strip and in his series on the Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim. If folks didn’t like it, well tough, said McGruder.

“N word users and apologists serve up the lame rationale that the more a black person uses the word, the less offensive it becomes, which is precisely the point Dr. Laura picked apart.  They claim that they are cleansing the word of its negative connotations so that racists can no longer use it to hurt blacks.  Comedian-turned-activist Dick Gregory had the same idea some years ago when he titled his autobiography, Nigger.  Black writer, Robert DeCoy also tried to apply the same racial shock therapy to whites when he titled his novel, The Nigger Bible.

“The black N word apologists tick off an endless storehouse of defenses to justify use of the word.  They claim that that it is a term of endearingly or affectionately.  They say to each other, “You’re my nigger if you don’t get no bigger.” Or, “that nigger sure is something.”  Others use it in anger or disdain, “Nigger you sure got an attitude.” Or, “A nigger ain’t s….”  Still, others are defiant.  They say they don’t care what a white person calls them since words can’t harm them.”

In the face of such blatant use of the N-word by blacks themselves, Schlessinger was disingenuously condemned by those professing to be offended by the mere sound of the word.  To be consistent with the newly established Schlessinger Standard, all blacks who invoke the N-word must be publicly castigated by anyone within earshot.  Also, all black entertainers who use the N-word must be driven out of the entertainment arena now.  Most important of all, this zero tolerance for hurting blacks requires that Obama be impeached immediately for the irreparable harm he has caused to poor black Americans.

All things considered, it is highly unlikely that blacks can be ever stopped from using the N-word, or that Obama will be impeached.  So, our only alternative is to toss the Schlessinger Standard into the dust bin and retrieve our Constitution from the trash heap where it has been tossed by Obama.  Then we can all have what Schlessinger pined for when she said “I want my freedom of speech back.”

That freedom will bring to a screeching halt the labeling of people as racist because some blacks feel offended by certain words, including such innocent words as “niggardly” which simply means “stingy” or “meager.”  Recapturing our freedom of speech will also allow people, such as Schlessinger, to discuss openly—without being labeled a racist—whether everyone, black and white, should eliminate certain words from our public discourse, given the historical context.

It is interesting to note that while we are admonished to consider the hurt “feelings” of blacks when choosing what words may be spoken, Obama has declared that it is acceptable for a mosque to be built near Ground Zero without regard for the feelings of the victims of the Islamo-fascist terrorist attacks on September 11th.

Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.

Urgent Request From Todd Palin

The following was received by email, and I thought worth sharing.  Here's your chance to reach across state borders to help a patriot in need.

Fellow Patriots:

A critical election for U.S. Senate is just 2 days away and constitutional conservatives across America need to rally together to support Conservative Republican Joe Miller for U.S. Senate in Alaska.  Joe is up against the political establishment and special interests in Alaska, and I can tell you first hand that my own family has had to face such battles before.  It’s not easy, and Joe needs your help.

Fortunately the Tea Party Express has stepped up to the plate, spending over $400,000 already in the battle to support Joe Miller.  The problem is that Joe’s opponent has received millions of dollars from the political establishment in this race alone.  We must level the playing field.  So I am asking you to please make a contribution to this campaign.

I don’t typically send out emails asking people to support fundraising drives.  But today the Tea Party Express received the results from their latest polling which they graciously shared with me.  The results show that we have gained 25% for Joe Miller in just the past 2 1⁄2 weeks.  We’ve got the momentum, and victory is within reach, but there is no time to waste.  We must act now.

At a time where our leaders in Washington have failed us we desperately need new leaders who have the courage and guts to stand up to the special interests and the political establishment. Joe Miller has the background, experience, and commitment to the constitution that is desperately lacking in Washington.  A West Point graduate and Bronze Star recipient, Joe is also a constitutional scholar, serving as the youngest federal magistrate in Alaska history.

Joe Miller is a principled conservative who stands on his beliefs, he doesn’t change his views based on which way the political winds are blowing and he can’t be bought off.

So would you please consider making a contribution to the Tea Party Express’ campaign in support of Joe Miller.  We’re trying to raise $150,000 in the next 48 hours.  I know we can reach this goal if enough of you step forward and make a generous contribution.  You can contribute by clicking –here

Our Founding Fathers pledged their lives, fortune and sacred honor for this Republic.  I hope you’ll sacrifice a contribution to help elect a Constitutional Conservative like Joe Miller to the U.S. Senate.

Thank you for your support!

New Ambassador To Kenya Expected To Offer Softer Diplomacy

Looks like Obama plans to replace Michael Rannenberger, Ambassador to Kenya, with Retired Gen. Scott Gration.  The general retired in 2008 to join Obama's presidential campaign.  In 2009 Gration was criticized for his methods of dealing with the Sudanese government in Darfur.  Gration argued:
We've got to think about giving out cookies," to the government, Gration told the Washington Post during the trip. "Kids, countries -- they react to gold stars, smiley faces, handshakes, agreements, talk, engagement.
So, how many cookies, money and other rewards will Gration give away to Kenya?

A dramatic shift in strategy by President Barack Obama administration is expected to restore Kenya’s role in the war against international terrorism and piracy after more than a decade.

With the testy issue of constitutional reforms nearly done and dusted, security experts say the promulgation of the new Constitution this week sets the stage and tenor for new US engagement with Kenya. To realise this, Obama is expected to replace outgoing US envoy Michael Ranneberger, with his special envoy in Darfur, Sudan, Gen Scott Gration.

Gration has been instrumental in dissuading Washington from confrontational conflict resolution tactics to use of soft power to protect its interest in the region without eliciting further hostilities from mainly Muslims. In the past two weeks, the State Department has sent out strong indications of a possible change of personnel and strategy at the foreign of office, where tough-talking Ranneberger is expected to pave way for Kenyan-born Gration.

Billionaire Will Pay $1 Million To First Person To Streak In Front of Obama

The Standard
August 23, 2010

A British billionaire, Alki David, has offered $1 million (Sh80m) to the first person who manages to streak naked in front of Barack Obama.

The billionaire heir to a shipping and bottle-plant empire, currently ranked 45 in the Sunday Times Rich List with an estimated fortune of £1.15 billion (Sh152b), made the pledge as part of a publicity stunt for a new website.

Shariah Index Project at Ground Zero?

Ground Zero Mosque's Hidden Websites:  Follow the Shariah
By Christine Brim

Do the math.  The 15 floors planned for the Ground Zero Mosque just don’t add up.
What’s the goal? Maybe the Imam’s goal is not simply to force a provocative “insensitivity” about 9-11 on the American public, with the help of America’s elites.  Maybe the Imam’s long-term goal is to force Shariah law on the American public – of course, again, with the help of America’s elites.

Why don’t the 15 floors add up? How many floors does Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf need for the mosque portion of this triumphal Islamic command center planned for the two building sites at 45-47 Park Place in New York City?  Think about it: maybe 2 floors for the mosque itself and related offices.  A 3rd floor for the swimming pool, a 4th for the 500 seat auditorium, a 5th for the halal restaurant and halal culinary school, a 6th for the art studios, the childcare center and library, a 7th for the gym and basketball court.  Add an 8th floor for miscellaneous storage and offices.  And then add a 9th floor for the September 11 memorial, an after-thought that was recently added to the Imam’s plan, although that may in fact be more of a room off to one side than a whole floor.

That leaves six mystery floors empty – or dedicated to other activities. Six floors – that’s a lot of offices, a lot of employees, maybe more than half of the 150 full-time and 500 part-time jobs the Imam says he’ll bring to Lower Manhattan.   What are Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf’s plans for those six mystery floors?

NEA's Communist Indoctrination of Our Public School Teachers

By Bill Costello
August 21, 2010

The National Education Association (NEA), the U.S.'s largest labor union, is promoting communism to the millions of American public school teachers it represents. Teachers who are influenced by their union's efforts are more likely to indoctrinate American children into communism.

For the past several months, the NEA website has recommended that its members read books by communist sympathizer Saul Alinsky. And, for a time, the website listed October 1 as a day for teachers and students to celebrate the anniversary of the Communist takeover of China by Mao Zedong.
[Note:  Nice to see that others are becoming aware of the NEA's promotion of Saul Alinsky's tactics.  I recently reported on this same topic.  Indeed, the NEA has been promoting Alinsky amongst its union members for years.  Kuddos to Bill Costello for helping to raise the alarm.  Anyone for school choice?]

Anchor Babies & The Meaning of "Subject To The Jurisdiction Of . . ."

Linda Chavez's misunderstanding of the Citizenship Clause
By Dr. John C. Eastman
The Daily Caller
August 20, 2010

From the very opening of her “Case for Birthright Citizenship,” published in the August 11 issue of The Wall Street Journal, my good friend Linda Chavez demonstrates a misunderstanding of both the Fourteenth Amendment’s Citizenship Clause and the recent efforts by Republican leaders in Congress to address the very significant inducement to illegal immigration that birthright citizenship provides.  Although sometimes inartfully expressed, the argument is not that the Fourteenth Amendment should be amended to repeal birthright citizenship but that, properly understood, the Fourteenth Amendment does not actually guarantee birthright citizenship nearly as broadly as Chavez claims.

Here’s the crux of the dispute.

Will the Palins Be Affected By Presidential Executive Order To Control Ocean Fishing?

And now:  The stealth Obama ocean grab
By Michelle Malkin
August 20, 2010

It’s not enough that the White House is moving to lock up hundreds of millions of acres of land in the name of environmental protection. The Obama administration’s neon green radicals are also training their sights on the deep blue seas. The president’s grabby-handed bureaucrats have been empowered through executive order to seize unprecedented control from states and localities over “conservation, economic activity, user conflict and sustainable use of the ocean, our coasts and the Great Lakes.”
In late July, President Obama established a behemoth 27-member “National Ocean Council” with the stroke of a pen. Farr gloated: “We already have a Clean Air Act and a Clean Water Act. With today’s executive order, President Obama in effect creates a Clean Ocean Act.” And not a single hearing needed to be held. Not a single amendment considered. Not a single vote cast.

Remember When A Christian President Was A Bad Thing?

Faith of our presidents
By Slublog on HotAir.com
August 20, 2010

Remember when a Christian president was a bad thing?

When George W. Bush was president, journalists and the left had two templates for Bush-faith stories. The first cast his faith in a dark light, with suspicion and conspiratorial thinking. Bush’s faith, they said, clouded his thinking on vital issues, and his judgment was called into question. The ultimate message of this template was simple: can we really trust a guy who believes that he’s doing God’s will?

Marine Veteran's Open Letter To President Obama

An Open Letter To President Obama
By Jeffrey S. Howard
Investor's Business Daily
August 19, 2010

In today's dangerous world, we need a president with experience, leadership and courage. Unfortunately, you have shown us little of those traits.

Your childhood and younger years denied you the opportunity to grow up as an American man, and that is no fault of your own. Unfortunately, your lack of empathy for and experience of a traditional American upbringing has left you out of touch with those of us who grew up learning the traditions and work ethic of our predecessors.

You have never accepted the honor of military service, or held and survived in any sort of entry-level working position. You are bereft of many of the basic building blocks of a true American personality and worldview.

You have never experienced the icy hand of fear caressing your gut during a firefight when your very survival from second to second depends on your luck, wits, fellow troopers and the grace of God. You have never sweated out a payroll when your receivables are late.

Muslim or Christian, Obama Still Has An Ingrained Contempt For America

Understanding Obama's Muslim Roots
By Jack Cashill
August 19, 2010

To understand why President Barack Obama endorsed the Ground Zero Mosque—before he didn’t endorse it—a look at his various parents and their ideological roots might be in order.

Much has been made about the Kenyan Obamas and their Muslim heritage, but it has become increasingly clear that Barack Sr. probably never even saw little Barry until he visited the boy and his family in Hawaii ten years after the boy’s birth.

Still, the Obamas matter since President Obama has pulled much of his identity from them. For obvious political reasons, however, he has been skittish about their faith. 

Ann Coulter: NYT's Hypocrisy, Foreign Laws & Nativism

Look Who's 'Nativist' Now!
By Ann Coulter
August 18, 2010

"Nativism in American politics has become so rampant that it is considered scandalous in Republican circles for a judge to acknowledge paying any attention to foreign courts and their legal rulings." -- New York Times editorial, Aug. 3, 2010

The New York Times runs this same smug editorial every few months -- at least I think it's the same editorial -- to vent its spleen at conservatives who object to American judges relying on foreign law to interpret the U.S. Constitution.

But when it comes to anchor babies, The New York Times and the entire Democratic establishment plug their ears and hum rather than consider foreign laws on citizenship. (For more on this, see "Mexican immigration law versus U.S. immigration law.")

Needless to say, America is the only developed nation that allows illegal aliens to gain full citizenship for their children merely by dropping them on U.S. soil.

Obama Oversees Crude Quest for Reparations

By John Dale Dunn, MD
August 19, 2010

I was stunned a few weeks ago when a black professional colleague told me there were all-black cruises that featured speakers such as Louis Farrakhan. Mr. Farrakhan is a Muslim black nationalist, formerly a security officer, now successor to Elijah Mohammed of the Nation of Islam. He is a racist, an anti-Semite, and an anti American to the core.    

Prosperous American blacks pay good money to go on a cruise with a racist like Louis Farrakhan? Mr. Farrakhan is more hateful than other race agitators, hustlers, and shakedown artists like Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton. He is in concert with the Congressional Black Caucus, who slavishly support communist regimes like Cuba and anti-American projects, who are angry at Whitey, but claim to be the conscience of the Congress. I couldn't help but think, What would be the public outcry if there were all-white cruises with David Duke, or the formation of a Congressional White Caucus? But blacks can't be racist in the new order of things, can they?

Now For Something Different: Whiskey Biofuel

Now and again I just need to dip into something different.

Whiskey Biofuel:  Scottish Engineers Want To Give Your Car a Stiff Drink
Discover Blogs/Discoblog

Beef, butter sculptures, and people byproducts have made for some good biofuels. Now Scottish researchers are looking to whiskey. Processing whiskey waste–pot ale, the liquid in copper stills, and draff, leftovers from grain–researchers at Edinburgh Napier University have created butanol which they claim can provide 25 percent more energy per unit volume than ethanol, a more typical biofuel.

How many names does the president have?
White House passport image raises further questions
By Jerome Corsi
August 19, 2010

How many different names is President Obama legally authorized to use?
Is his legal name Barack Hussein Obama II, Barack Hussein Obama (without the designation "II" indicating Barack Obama Jr.), Barry Soetoro or Barack Hussein Obama Soebarkah?

All of these names appear in various documents produced since 2008 regarding Obama's life story and his passport records.
The White House released this week a video displaying Obama's passport, but the name displayed does not match the name on the Certification of Live Birth, or COLB, prominently displayed on websites favorable to Obama during the 2008 presidential campaign.

Questions About Ground Zero Mosque Funding Heats Up

How does Imam Rauf expect to raise $100 million to build the Ground Zero Mosque when this group only had $18,000 in the bank 18/19 months ago?

Solutions for America: Taking The Helm Away From The Left

Criticism is easy.  Finding solutions is much harder.  I would like to direct your attention to a report compiled by The Heritage Foundation.  The report first warns us that entitlement programs like Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security are literally on autopilot, and that if bad or no changes are made, our country will run out of money by 2052.  And, this assessment doesn't even include the damage caused by Obamacare. 

There will be no money to continue the entitlements, no money for foreign aid, no money for infrastructure, no money for national defense!  Even government workers, including members of Congress, won't get paid (Hmmm. Let me think about that one.)  No money for anything!  Caput!  Finito!

The good news is that the Heritage Foundation has come up with a plan to change the way entitlements are managed.  If implemented, their solutions would put our country back on the right path.  Of course you won't see this plan put into action so long as Regressives (aka Democrats) own every branch of the government.  In fact, I can't imagine these solutions being fully implemented unless conservatives are given an opportunity to own every branch of the government until the problems are solved.   If a tiny tugboat can turn a giant tanker, a conservative takeover of the branches of government can also turn this country around for the better so long as they implement these and other solutions.

Please read, learn, and then vote conservative.

Reining in Runaway Spending and Deficits
The Heritage Foundation
August 17, 2010

Entitlements—Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid—threaten to bankrupt the nation. The unsustainable tsunami of spending on these programs will accelerate as 77 million baby boomers flood into them. Unlike other parts of the federal budget, such as defense or most education programs, Congress does not review and approve the level of funding for these programs annually or…ever. Rather, their expansion is on autopilot, fueled by demographic changes and rapidly rising health care costs. We are reaching a budgetary tipping point as entitlement spending’s automatic “first call” crowds out other national priorities. Recent studies show that America’s long-term fiscal situation is one of the world’s worst, which makes reforms even more urgent if we are to avoid the fate of Greece or even Britain. But entitlements are also a moral challenge. It is simply wrong to make unsustainable promises to today’s adults by shackling our children and grandchildren with crippling debt or heavy taxes.

Insanity Reigns At The White House

Doubling Down on Failed Obamanomics?
By Larry Elder
Investors Business Daily
August 18, 2010

The position of chair of the Council of Economic Advisers is open. How President Barack Obama fills it can tell us whether he's finally gone wobbly on Obamanomics — maybe in time to arrest some of the damage.

Would President Obama, to fill a Supreme Court vacancy, ponder whether to nominate liberal Ruth Bader Ginsburg or conservative Antonin Scalia? Would his finalists come down to Sonia Sotomayor or Samuel Alito? Elena Kagan or John Roberts?

Laughable, of course.
No, we've been driving that car for nearly two years. Voters elected a dangerous left-winger who trusts government to run health care, car companies, banks and the student loan program.

The driver-in-chief not only sees no need for a course correction, he wants to step on the gas.

NRSC Video: Mr. President, Who's Extreme?

Do you recognize this person? He's a liberal.  He assumes the ideological position held by his idol, Barack Obama, and he doesn't give a damn what the majority of the American people want.  He's a member of the Democrat ruling class who thinks he's smarter than you.

If you doubt me, watch this video produced by the National Republican Senatorial Committee.
