Progressives, Communists and Terrorists: Comrades True

By Cliff Kincaid
Accuracy in Media
September 30, 2010

As incredible as it may seem, the giant labor federation, the AFL-CIO, used to be run by a staunch anti-communist. George Meany had his disagreements with conservatives on domestic issues but he mostly agreed with them on foreign policy. Indeed, Meany was so anti-communist that he was dubbed a “right-winger” by liberals in the media. He criticized détente with the Soviet Union. He didn’t like communists and refused to allow them into his coalitions.

All of this changed over time. When the AFL-CIO staged a “Solidarity Day” rally in 1981, in order to protest President Ronald Reagan’s domestic policies, then-AFL-CIO President Lane Kirkland refused to tell communists they were not welcome.

When John Sweeney, a member of the Democratic Socialists of America, became president of the AFL-CIO, the communists and their fellow travelers were officially welcomed in. He hired veterans of the Venceremos Brigades such as Karen Nussbaum and Karen Ackerman. These were the groups of radical young people who had gone to Communist Cuba for indoctrination sessions back in the 1970s.  Some went for training in guerrilla warfare. The trips were arranged by Bernardine Dohrn of the terrorist Weather Underground.

Cyber Wars of The World Are Underway

We've been smiling ever since we heard that the Stuxnet worm had invaded Iran's nuclear system computers. Great idea, so long as it's your enemy that suffers. However, this article gives a very sobering perspective on how cyber wars will disrupt our lives. The author states "There is growing concern that there has already been hostile reconnaissance of the US electricity grid." Imagine the chaos if the entire electrical grid in the US suddenly shut down. Cyber wars are no longer a fantasy of the future; they are the new weapons of today.

Stuxnet worm heralds new era of global cyberwar
By Peter Beaumont
The Guardian
September 30, 2010

Attack aimed at Iran nuclear plant and recently revealed 2008 incident at US base show spread of cyber weapons.

The memory sticks were scattered in a washroom at a US military base in the Middle East that was providing support for the Iraq war.
They were deliberately infected with a computer worm, and the undisclosed foreign intelligence agency behind the operation was counting on the fallibility of human nature. According to those familiar with the events, it calculated that a soldier would pick up one of the memory sticks, pocket it and – against regulations – eventually plug it into a military laptop.

It was correct.

The result was the delivery of a self-propagating malicious worm into the computer system of the US military's central command – Centcom – which would take 14 months to eradicate.

FBI Terrorist Probe Links Funding To Obama & Ayers

FBI terror probe targets group funded by Obama
President, Bill Ayers channeled money to 'anti-Israel' organization
By Aaron Klein
September 29, 2010

JERUSALEM--President Obama and Weather Underground terrorist group founder William Ayers provided funds in the 1990s to an Arab group whose executive director had his home raided last week in a terror probe by the FBI.

"The [search] warrants are seeking evidence in support of an ongoing Joint Terrorism Task Force investigation into activities concerning the material support of terrorism," Steve Warfield spokesman for the FBI in Minneapolis, told reporters.

Palin Promotions in Beverly Hills

Palin Promotions had boots on the ground in Los Angeles today (again). Mr. Pat Boone hosted the first Beverly Hills Tea Party. We felt this would be a great place to get our Grrrrr on by helping Sarah Palin's Mama and Papa Grizzlies by distributing promotional material for (O4P) and other Sarah Palin related goodies.

The Palin Promotions Team is statewide. I am a native Californian and the member of the Palin Promotions Team who lives closest to Beverly Hills. I am not a resident of Beverly Hills. I live in Runyon Canyon in Hollywood, about 15 minutes from Beverly Hills. So I was designated to put my boots on the ground today. I started off by loading up my Palin Promotions messenger bag:

I packed O4P cards:

Sarah Palin buttons (last time I ran out so I brought 100-still wasn't enough, at one point I was mobbed! HE HAS SARAH PALIN BUTTONS!):

And plenty of Copies of 101 Reasons to Support Sarah Palin by Nicole Coulter, and Governor Sarah Palins Accomplishments. (NOTE: I have found it helpful to keep a supply of these with me at all times so when I talk to people about Sarah Palin I have something to give them to read and share)

Once I got there I got to work.

Tea Party's are an excellent place to talk to people about O4P and Sarah Palin.

It's also a great opportunity to let people know how easy is to navigate (and people love hearing about the little Mama & Papa Grizzly icons on the USA Map! at O4P)

Everyone today wanted to know how they can help Sarah Palin and the Mama & Papa Grizzlies. They were so excited to hear how fast, easy, and FREE is.

November is on everyones mind. Grrrrrrrr.

After singing her funny hit song, "There's a Communist Living in the White House" I got a chance to talk to Victoria Jackson of Saturday Night Live fame. Victoria is a huge Sarah Palin supporter and often writes about it on Victoria said she would be happy to join O4P and plans on telling all her friends!

Here's Reverend Wayne Perryman speaking. He was very inspirational to listen to. Several conservative African Americans spoke today. The diversity at the Beverly Hills Tea Party was truly uplifting and exactly not what the LSM wants to cover. Reverend Perryman spoke openly about imaginary RAAACISM and how the left uses it to silence dissent.

Sarah Palin endorsed Mama Grizzly Star Parker also spoke today. Her speech was heartfelt. Star spoke about how she was a single welfare mother in Los Angeles. She returned to college and received a BS degree in marketing and started her own magazine. Unfortunately the 1992 Los Angeles riots destroyed her business but the silver lining is that it inspired her conservative activism which has led to her congressional run for CA 37.

After Star's speech I got back to work making sure as many people as possible knew about O4P and how they could take part in the restoration of America.

It feels so good to hear people say they support Sarah Palin and the Mama & Papa Grizzlies. Yes, even here in Los Angeles. Did you hear me? LOS ANGELES! There is something in the air folks!

It makes me happy talking to Sarah Palin supporters here in my own city. Two years ago I felt like I was the only one. I lost a lot of friends, and was called a "hater" and RAAACIST for not supporting Barack Obama. Not anymore. People are eager to help Sarah Palin and I am so honored to be able to teach them how. (Plus it's so easy with

Folks we are 37 days away from an election that will change the course of our lives, and our America. The time for choosing is almost here. Sarah Palin has set the stage for us to get America back on the right track. By getting Pro America, common sense conservative, candidates elected in the primaries, Sarah Palin has put victory in our hands. The rest is up to us.

What I saw today here in Beverly Hills were concerned Americans ready to take back their country. Please do everything you can these last days before the elections.

Let's stay motivated, let's stay activated, and let's get organized. Please register at and help send the Mama and Papa Grizzlies to Washington.

Let's all go rogue for Sarah Palin and let’s reclaim the power of the people from those who disregard the will of the people.

Unlike Pelosi, Hawaii Dems Refused to Certify Obama As Constitutionally Eligibile

Hawaii Dems button-lipped on Obama eligibility status
Doc missing statement candidate 'qualified' under U.S. Constitution
By Bob Unruh
September 25, 2010

It has been documented that when Barack Obama was picked by the Democratic Party to be its 2008 presidential candidate, only one state -- Hawaii -- was sent a document from Nancy Pelosi certifying that he was qualified under the requirements of the U.S. Constitution.

Now a series of blogs reports are heating up the issue again, this time revealing documents that showed it apparently was Hawaii's local Democratic Party that refused to include that certification on its paperwork naming Obama as its candidate.

Even today, the Hawaii Democratic Party was staying mum, declining attempts by WND to obtain a comment on why it handled the 2008 presidential race paperwork as it did.

Center for Security Policy Report: Shariah - The Threat To America

Shariah:  The Threat to America
Center for Security Policy
September 13, 2010

This study is the result of months of analysis, discussion and drafting by a group of top security policy experts concerned with the preeminent totalitarian threat of our time: the legal-political-military doctrine known within Islam as "shariah." It is designed to provide a comprehensive and articulate "second opinion" on the official characterizations and assessments of this threat as put forth by the United States government. This study challenges the assumptions underpinning the official line in the conflict with today's totalitarian threat, which is currently euphemistically described as "violent extremism," and the policies of co-existence, accommodation and submission that are rooted in those assumptions.

UPDATE: The Team B II Report, Shariah: The Threat to America, wil be released in early October as a 370-page paperback volume, and will be available to purchase at for $14.00. This official version will include an expanded section on the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) as well as the complete text of the 1991 Muslim Brotherhood document, "An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America,"entered into evidence in the US v Holy Land Foundation trial.

Reality TV Sickens Our Nation - Polygamy To Become The New Normal?

Polymorphous Propaganda
By Brent Bozell
September 25, 2010

The sexual revolution always seems to have another frontier.  Indeed, the very idea of a "revolution" would be negated were there no frontiers to conquer.  So deeper, ever deeper, we plumb the depths.  Look at television.  Every new frontier is just another titillating, initially shocking plot for a fictional or "reality" show, until there's a "new normal" and the novelty and naughtiness wears off.

Wash, rinse, repeat.

The latest example is a brand-new show on the TLC cable network called "Sister Wives," all about a likeable, long-haired Utah man named Kody Brown and his three wives and 13 children.  But this isn't enough drama for a "reality" show, so the plot twist has Brown taking on a fourth wife with three of her own kids from a previous marriage.

We've gone down a very strange path from "The Brady Bunch."

Maps Showing Racial Breakdown in American Cities

By David Gardner
September 25, 2010

These are the maps that show the racial breakdown of America’s biggest  cities.
But the colourful charts appear to belie the U.S.’s reputation as the world’s melting pot.

Using information from the latest U.S. census results available, the maps show just how far America has come in blending together the races in the nation’s 40 largest cities.
With one dot equalling 25 people, digital cartographer Eric Fischer then colour-coded them based on race, with whites represented by pink, blacks by blue, Hispanic by orange and Asians by green.

The resulting maps may not represent what many might expect Barack Obama’s rainbow nation to look like.

DoE Plans to Propagandize Your Children To Accept Anthropomorphic Climate Change

Count me among those who would like to shut down the Department of Education, and one who supports school choice as determined by free-markets--let state tax dollars follow students to the schools of their choice.  These ideas become even more important when we discover that the Department of Education is taking on the role of propagandist for the Obama regime.  They plan to educate the little children to believe in anthropormorphic climate change, so that as the children mature, they will unthinkingly support cap and trade legislation, global taxation, and other statist means to deprive Americans of their freedoms and their hard-earned money.  I say, keep your hands off my kids' minds!

"Today, I promise you that under my leadership, the Department of Education will be a committed partner in the national effort to build a more environmentally literate and responsible society," said Education Secretary Arne Duncan."

U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan vowed on Tuesday that his department would work to make American children into "good environmental citizens" through federally subsidized school programs beginning as early as kindergarten that teach children about climate change and prepare them "to contribute to the workforce through green jobs."

“This week’s sustainability summit represents the first time that the Department is taking a taking a leadership role in the work of educating the next generation of green citizens and preparing them to contribute to the workforce through green jobs,” said Duncan. “President Obama has made clean, renewable energy a priority because, as he says, it’s the best way to 'truly transform our economy, to protect our security, and save our planet.'

More DOJ Corruption: Soldiers Denied The Right To Vote--Again!

Investor's Business Daily
September 23, 2010

Election '10: The Department of Justice is failing to enforce a law that protects the voting rights of soldiers overseas. They're allowed to fight and die for their country, but they can't vote for its leaders?
Last Saturday was the deadline under the Military and Overseas Voter Empowerment Act (MOVE) for states to have sent unmarked absentee ballots to soldiers overseas so they can exercise the same right to vote as those they risk their lives to protect, including Afghans and Iraqis.

The MOVE Act, passed with overwhelming bipartisan support last year, says states must provide overseas ballots 45 days before a federal election. Waivers can be granted under certain circumstances, but only if states can prove the votes of service members can still be cast and counted.

Five states — Delaware, Massachusetts, New York, Rhode Island and Washington — were granted waivers. Other states have indicated they were having difficulty complying, though it's hard to fathom what prevents them from ensuring service members from their states can vote.

Texas Sen. John Cornyn, who co-authored the law, says that despite repeated inquiries, DOJ has provided no substantive information on the level of compliance or how Justice intends to enforce the MOVE Act.

DOJ Officials Testify in New Black Panther Voter Intimidation Case

New Proof of Perjury, Obstruction in Black Panther Case?
By Ben Johnson
September 23, 2010

A series of major new developments threaten to expose the full extent of the Obama administration’s role in dismissing charges against the New Black Panther Party, an investigation that could reveal obstruction of justice and perjury.

Most significantly, Christopher Coates, who was head of the Justice Department’s Voting Rights section at the time and suggested the case proceed, will testify before the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights. Coates has been named as one career DoJ official who could verify J. Christian Adams’ claims that the Obama administration pressured lawyers to dismiss this case and all charges brought against minority groups.

Tax Cuts? Not In Obama's Presidency

Cartoon by Erin Bonsteel.

'Clean Cookstoves': US To Fund UN Climate Change Initiative Disguised as Foreign Aid

This arrived in an email directly from the U.S. State Department.  Over $100 million of our tax dollars at work -- outside of America.  This humane-sounding initiative is actually global climate change funding in disguise.

Office of the Spokesman
U.S. State Department
Washington, D.C.
September 21, 2010

On September 21, 2010, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton announced the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves, a public-private partnership led by the United Nations Foundation, which focuses on creating a thriving global market for clean and efficient household solutions.

The U.S. Department of State, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), U.S. Department of Energy, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services – Centers for Disease Control and National Institutes of Health, and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), all of whom are founding partners of the Alliance, have forged an unprecedented government effort to mobilize financial resources, top- level U.S. experts, and research and development tools to help the Alliance achieve its target of ‘100 by 20,’ which calls for 100 million homes to adopt clean and efficient stoves and fuels by 2020.

Madam President?

By Shushannah Walshe
The Independent
September 21, 2010

Speculation that she will run for President in 2012 is reaching fever pitch.  But what do those who watched Sarah Palin grow up make of her meteoric ascent - and ruthless ambition?

The first thing you notice, upon pulling up to Chuck and Sally Heath's house in Wasilla, Alaska, is the Christmas tree of moose antlers piled up next to the driveway. Step inside the ranch-style home, and you get another unmistakable sign that you're not in the Democrats
' America anymore: Chuck's prized collection of skinned and stuffed animals, the spoils of his many hunting trips – a cougar, a mountain goat, foxes, birds, and snake skins spilling over the banister. Outside, a picnic table offers dramatic views of the Chugach Mountain range. It was in this setting that the Heaths, putting aside their natural wariness of press from the Lower 48 states, agreed to meet a reporter, feed her fresh snap peas from their garden-and share their thoughts about their world-famous daughter, Sarah Palin.

UK Tax Collectors Want All Paychecks To Be Sent To The Government

Since American socialists are so enamored with European ideas, it seemed like a good idea to show this article to you as an advance warning of what we might expect from the Democrats if they retain power.  Don't forget, we already have a Pay Czar!  Anyone care to wage how long it will take before the Dems take this idea and run with it?

UK Proposes All Paychecks Go to the State First
By Robin Knight
September 20, 2010

The UK's tax collection agency is putting forth a proposal that all employers send employee paychecks to the government, after which the government would deduct what it deems as the appropriate tax and pay the employees by bank transfer.

The proposal by Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC) stresses the need for employers to provide real-time information to the government so that it can monitor all payments and make a better assessment of whether the correct tax is being paid.

Currently employers withhold tax and pay the government, providing information at the end of the year, a system know as Pay as You Earn (PAYE). There is no option for those employees to refuse withholding and individually file a tax return at the end of the year.

Dawa: Have Your Kids Taken A School Trip to a Mosque Yet?

Why is it okay to send kids to a mosque for a school field trip where they are overtly prostletyzed (see Dahwah), but a school would never take a field trip to a Christian church or a Jewish synagogue?  What happened to the separation of church and state?

The trip described in the video below, and its associated article, is located in Massachussetts.  The East coast of the US is literally being colonized with religious practitioners who don't share our values, and they're heading West.  Before parents sign a permission slip to allow their children to participate in such a field trip, they must watch this video.

School Trip to "Moderate" Mosque:  Inside Video Captures Kids Bowing to Allah
Americans for Peace & Tolerance
September 15, 2010

Today, Americans for Peace and Tolerance released a video showing 6th graders from Wellesley, MA as they rise from prostrating themselves alongside Muslim men in a prayer to Allah while on a public school field trip to the largest mosque in the Northeast.  Teachers did not intervene. Parents have not been told.

The video was taken inside the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center – Boston’s controversial Saudi-funded mega-mosque – during a Wellesley Middle School social studies trip to the mosque, ostensibly taken to learn about the history of Islam first-hand. Yet the video reveals that the students are being blatantly mis-educated about Islam. A mosque spokesperson is seen teaching the children that in Mohammed’s 7th century Arabia women were allowed to vote, while in America women only gained that right a hundred years ago. This seems to be an increasingly recurring theme in American schools – the denigration of western civilization and the glorification of Islamic history and values. In fact, just recently, the American Textbook Council revealed that the New York State high school regents exam whitewashes the atrocities that occurred during the imperialistic Islamic conquest of Christian Byzantium, Persia, the African continent, and the Indian subcontinent, even as it demonizes European colonialism in South America.

The mosque spokesperson also taught the students that the only meaning of Jihad in Islam is a personal spiritual struggle, and that Jihad has historically had no relationship with holy war. As far as we know, the school has not corrected these false lessons.

UN: Obama Endorses "Innovative Finance Mechanisms" aka Global Taxes

I hoped someone would analyze the comments made by Esther Brimmer, and Accuracy in Media has done so.  Cliff Kincaid has decoded the language for us.  Obama wants the US to pay global taxes, and the U.N. gets to dole out the stash of cash.  Ha!  Even if all of us agreed to such a notion, there is no way the U.N. can be trusted with money.

Obama Endorses Global Taxes on Eve of U.N. Summit
By Cliff Kincaid
Accuracy in Media
September 16, 2010

In a classic case of misdirection, while the media are preoccupied with the fate of the Bush tax cuts, President Obama is preparing to attend a United Nations summit next week to endorse “innovative finance mechanisms”—global taxes—to drain even more wealth out of the U.S. economy.

A draft “outcome document” produced in advance of the September 20-22 U.N. Summit on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) commits the nations of the world to supporting “innovative financing mechanisms” to supplement foreign aid spending.

The term “innovative financing mechanisms” is a U.N. euphemism for global taxes. But the document actually goes further, praising the “Task Force on International Financial Transactions for Development” for its work on the subject of mobilizing additional “resources” for countries to achieve the MDGs. This is a body tasked with proposing and implementing global tax schemes.

Obama's Tangled Web of Deception

September 16, 2010

1. Oh what a tangled web we weave...

It isn't hard to imagine the gnawing anxiety that AKA OBAMA lives with, day in and day out. Much has been written about AKA OBAMA's behavior that reminds mental health experts and others of NPD (Narcissistic Personality Disorder.) A frequent manifestation of such a disorder is The Narcissist, as Liar and Con-man.

This disorder is frequently misunderstood as "self-love." A more accurate understanding is love of a reflection of one's self. Abused, abandoned and neglected children will compensate for damaged egos by creating an ideal reflection of themselves that they then embellish and vigorously defend. A person with NPD is quite capable of a mind twisting position like, "I have nothing to hide, but I am hiding things anyway." AKA OBAMA certainly fits the model of having such a childhood. While I am not in the position to deliver an official In Absentia diagnosis of a full strength NPD case, many of the indicators are present.

If AKA OBAMA were not in a position of public trust, most of us would probably overlook such deception and secrecy. For those of us who care about our Constitution and the rule of law, the issue becomes clear in this article that appeared in on-line Pravda by international columnist Mark S. McGrew, The Mysterious Shadow: Code Name Obama. Most Americans do not want their president to be secretive about his past. However, if one is living a lie to preserve the ego compensating, idealized reflection of self, one will go to great lengths to hide things that most would routinely reveal.

Why Is There A Declining Trend In al-Qaeda's Messaging to Celebrate 9/11?

The 9/11 Anniversary and What Didn't Happen
By Scott Stewart
September 16, 2010

By Scott Stewart

Sept. 11, 2010, the ninth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, was a day of solemn ceremony, remembrance and reflection. It was also a time to consider the U.S. reaction to the attack nine years ago, including the national effort to destroy al Qaeda and other terrorist groups in order to prevent a repeat of the 9/11 attacks. Of course, part of the U.S. reaction to 9/11 was the decision to invade Afghanistan, and the 9/11 anniversary also provided a time to consider how the United States is now trying to end its Afghanistan campaign so that it can concentrate on more pressing matters elsewhere.

The run-up to the anniversary also saw what could have been an attempted terrorist attack in another Western country. On Sept. 10 in Denmark, a potential bombing was averted by the apparent accidental detonation of an improvised explosive device in a bathroom at a Copenhagen hotel. The Danish authorities have not released many details of the incident, but it appears that the suspect may have been intending to target the Danish Jyllands-Posten newspaper, which has been targeted in the past because it published cartoons featuring the Prophet Mohammed in 2005. Groups such as al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) have tried hard to ensure that the anger over the cartoon issue does not die down, and it apparently has not. It is important to note that even if the perpetrator had not botched it, the plot — at least as we understand it so far — appears to have involved asimple attack plan and would not have resulted in a spectacular act of terrorism.

What If The Sign Said, 'Kill Those Who Insult Christianity'?

Do you feel like you're living in a time warp?  21st Century Americans encounter 12th Century Islamic il-logic.  

As someone close to me recently said:
My Lord takes care of Himself.  He needs no one to "protect his name" as they feel Muhammad needs.

There was a time when, if a person or group threatened the life of another, especially publicly, they were arrested.  Instead, we are so afraid of these people that they hide the one being sought after, and hope the pursuers calm down.  Everything we do these days is shaped to submit to their religious demands because we do not wish to provoke them. They can say all kinds of things against anything and everyone, and that is okay because that is their religion.  But if we
[Christians] invert that behavior, it is ... blasphemy and punishable by death.
September 16, 2010

The Seattle cartoonist whose artwork sparked the controversial "Everybody Draw Muhammad Day!" has gone into hiding at the advice of the FBI after being targeted by a radical Muslim cleric, according to the newspaper that published her comics.

Molly Norris has moved and changed her name, the Seattle Weekly said Wednesday, after U.S.-born Yemeni cleric Anwar al-Awlaki placed her on an execution hit list. Awlaki -- who has been linked to the botched Times Square bombing and cited as inspiration for the Fort Hood massacre and a plot by two New Jersey men to kill U.S. soldiers -- reportedly called Norris a "prime target" for assassination and that her "proper abode is hellfire."

[Note:  These protestors are in Pakistan, but this kind of behavior is intended to influence like-minded people in the States to do the killing for them.]

Video & Painting: 'The Forgotten Man' by Jon McNaughton

Another fabulous, provocative painting by Jon McNaughton.  This one is called "The Forgotten Man" and shows past Presidents and politicians standing behind a lone figure who personifies every man, woman and child in America.  Barack Obama figures prominently at the front with his foot resting on a trampled Constitution, while many in the background applaud.  McNaughton has also made an evocative video about the creation of this painting, which appears below.  Apparently, Glenn Beck and Michelle Malkin are talking about this work of art as well.

Islam: Have You Evaluated Your Kids' Social Studies & History Textbooks Lately?

Texas education board to consider rule on Islam's portrayal in textbooks
By Terrence Stutz
The Dallas Morning News
September 15, 2010

AUSTIN – Just when it appeared the State Board of Education was done with the culture wars, the panel is about to wade into the issue of what students should learn about Islam.

The board will consider a resolution next week that would warn publishers not to push a pro-Islamic, anti-Christian viewpoint in world history textbooks.

Members of the board's social conservative bloc asked for the resolution after an unsuccessful candidate for a board seat called on the panel to head off any bias against Christians in new social studies books. Some contend that "Middle Easterners" are increasingly buying into companies that publish textbooks.
The resolution cites examples in past world history books – no longer used in Texas schools – that devoted far more lines of text to Islamic beliefs and practices than to Christian beliefs and practices.
In addition, the measure cites some books that dwelled on the Christian Crusaders massacre of Muslims in Jerusalem in 1099, while censoring Muslim massacres of Christians there in 1244 and at Antioch in 1268 – "implying that Christian brutality and Muslim loss of life are significant, but Islamic cruelty and Christian deaths are not."

Sharing The Wealth - With The World

This email just arrived from the State Department, and reveals some initiatives I know nothing about, but perhaps I should.  I have added some links for further information, but haven't yet had time to read deep into them.  For example, did you know that Obamacare "makes new investments in strengthening health systems in Africa and elsewhere"?  Anywhere you see red text, think US dollars.

I hope someone with a good grasp of foreign aid will weigh in with an analysis.

Thank you, Karen, for that warm welcome.

Good Afternoon Ladies and Gentlemen.

It’s always an honor to be at the White House, and to be here today with such a diverse and dynamic audience.

We draw energy from the excitement and commitment you embody as we move forward in working together with Africa, and the international community, to address the common challenges of peace and security, and meeting the Millennium Development Goals. You represent a new generation of emerging African leaders – a generation engaged and connected as never before.

As Assistant Secretary of State for International Organizations – I oversee U.S. interaction with a host of international organizations, especially the United Nations. I am thrilled to work for a President and a Secretary of State dedicated to multilateral engagement and determined to address global challenges with global means. The Young African Leaders Forum is a significant example of the strengthening bonds between the United States, African nations and the wider international community.

Spreading the wealth - To Kenya

The Standard (Kenya)

The US will spend about Sh1 billion [~$12,369,000] on local youth programmes to facilitate their active participate[sic] in decision-making.

The local United States Ambassador, Michael Rannerbeger, said the grant would economically empower the youth and help them generate income to improve their livelihoods.

He said the youth could only effectively embrace democracy and desirable changes if they were empowered economically.

"The Obama Administration will continue to support youth programmes to facilitate their involvement in democratisation," Rannerberger said, in Kitale.

Black Panther case roars back
The Washington Times
September 13, 2010

The other shoe is dropping on the stonewallers at the Obama Justice Department. Yesterday, the department's inspector general, Glenn A. Fine, informed Rep. Lamar Smith, Texas Republican, and Rep. Frank Wolf, Virginia Republican, that he will open "a review of the enforcement of civil rights laws by the Voting Rights Section of the Department's Civil Rights Division." Such an investigation is bound to kick up a lot of dirt.

Although the review won't directly or solely analyze the now-infamous decision to deep-six a voter-intimidation case against members of the New Black Panther Party, it could include that case within its broader analysis of "whether the Voting Section has enforced the civil rights laws in a non-discriminatory manner; and whether any Voting Section employees have been harassed for participating in the investigation or prosecution of particular matters." This is big stuff. It would be difficult not to find something shady in Justice's decision not to pursue a case in which a Black Panther wielded a nightstick at a voting place while he and another spit violently racist epithets at voters.

'Just Words' for Suckers? Look Who's Talking.

Catchphrases, Slogans, Verbal Slop Turn Words Into 'Money Of Fools'
By Thomas Sowell
Investor's Business Daily
September 14, 2010

Words are supposed to convey thoughts, but they can also obliterate thoughts and shut down thinking. As Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes said, a catchword can "delay further analysis for fifty years." Holmes also said, "think things, not words."

When you are satisfied to accept words, without thinking beyond those words to the things — the tangible realities of the world — you are confirming what philosopher Thomas Hobbes said in the 17th century, that words are wise men's counters but they are the money of fools.

Even in matters of life and death, too many people accept words instead of thinking, leaving themselves wide open to people who are clever at spinning words. The whole controversy about "health care reform" is a classic example.

Gangsta' Government

Sebelius, WH tactics on ObamaCare dissent "thuggery"
By Ed Morrissey
September 13, 2010

Last week, I wrote about the threat from Kathleen Sebelius to lock out insurers who dared to dissent from the official ObamaCare line of lower costs and bigger benefits for all.  Today, both Michael Barone and the Wall Street Journal attack the White House and Sebelius for their “thuggery” in attempting to silence straightforward and rational criticisms as well as perfectly predictable increases in premium rates from accelerated mandates.  Barone calls this an example of “gangster government“:

Missing Severance Clause May Kill The Entire ObamaCare Bill

By Louis Case
September 13, 2010

Scott Brown's election could be the most significant turning point in the whole ObamaCare fiasco. And not because it was an "expression of the will of the people" because, as we've learned, that doesn't matter to our Washington overlords. No, Brown's election has trapped Congress in its own sloppy arrogance.

In a September 8th appearance on Greta Van Sustern's On The Record, Virginia's Attorney General,  Ken Cuccinelli, explained the significance of the Brown victory in the context of Virginia's lawsuit to overturn ObamaCare.

Obama's Anti-Colonialist Retribution

And to think this man holds the helm of America's future!

How Obama Thinks
By Dinesh D'Souza
Forbes Magazine
September 9, 2010

The president isn't exactly a socialist.  So what's driving his hostility to private enterprise?  Look to his roots.

Barack Obama is the most antibusiness president in a generation, perhaps in American history.  Thanks to him the era of big government is back.  Obama runs up taxpayer debt not in the billions but in the trillions.  He has expanded the federal government's control over home mortgages, investment banking, health care, autos and energy.  The Weekly Standard summarizes Obama's approach as omnnipotence at home, impotence abroad.

Going Rogue For Sarah Palin

Today in Los Angeles, CA I attended the Santa Monica GOP Headquarters Grand Opening as the representative from Palin Promotions. The Grand Opening was hosted by The Santa Monica Republican Women Federated. There were refreshments, literature, and one on one personal meetings with local GOP candidates.

Candidate buttons, pamphlets, and stickers were available. Carly Fiorina, Meg Whitman, and many local GOP candidates had their various take home items.

But they were not the only ones: 

Guess What? We RAN OUT of Sarah Palin For President 2012 buttons in less than 20 minutes!

Another hot item was Nicole Coulter's 101 Reasons to Support Sarah Palin:

All Sarah Palin buttons and literature were provided by Palin Promotions.

It was exciting to listen to all the Candidates tell it like it is and take a stand for our city, our state, and our country:

This future Mama Grizzly is running for Los Angeles City Council:

Pictured below is Chuck Wilkerson, who is running against Henry Waxman. Sending Henry Waxman to Brentwood for an early retirement would be cause for celebration, don't you think? Here's a link to Chuck's website. Let's help send this Papa Grizzly to Washington D. C. It's a long shot but America like an underdog:

James Andion is running for the United States House of Representatives from CA 33:

Here's a member of Team Carly. We in California are so grateful that Sarah Palin introduced us to Mama Grizzly Carly Fiorina. Without Sarah Palin's endorsement California could have been stuck with mushy RINO Tom Campbell. Thank you Sarah Palin! (Dear Barbara Boxer, Your Fired. XOXO California) :

Mattie Fein is running for the United States House of Representatives from CA 36:

Chris Bley is running for the Santa Monica/Malibu School Board:

Robert Kronovet is running for Santa Monica City Council:

It is days like today that I am encouraged that America will make it through this moment of darkness. There is something in the air. Americans are tired of the know-it-alls in Washington who have bankrupted our country. We will not be silent while the issues of a small, out of touch, minority are placed over the will of the majority. The disgracing of America will not be ignored.

We will not sit silently while those in power appease our enemies and lecture our allies. We will not be quiet while our borders are invaded and our leaders choose the side of the invaders over our citizens. Arrogant power grabs against the intent of our founders are not going unnoticed.

We expect our leaders to serve for the right reasons. We will no longer tolerate those who gorge themselves on taxpayer dollars and then call us racist, stupid, or hateful when we object to their unsustainable entitlements.

Today I watched regular, hardworking, everyday Americans stand up and say, "I've had enough". "I've had enough and I'm going to do something about it."

Sarah Palin paved the way for the people I listened to today. Brand name education and political pedigree's are no longer required to run for office. A servants heart, and the promise that one will serve and not rule is what Americans expect.

Real change is coming for America. These next two election cycles will chart the course for our country for many years to come.

However, the most important thing I learned today was: Don't run out of Sarah Palin For President 2012 buttons next time!
