All Things To All Men...How Obama Became Black

Really...Who is this guy?

By David Maraniss, Published: June 14 The Washington Post

He was too dark in Indonesia. A “hapa” child — half and half — in Hawaii. Multicultural in Los Angeles. An “invisible man” in New York. And finally, Barack Obama was black on the South Side of Chicago. This journey of racial self-discovery and reinvention is chronicled in David Maraniss’s biography, “Barack Obama: The Story,”to be published Tuesday. These excerpts trace the young Obama’s arc toward black identity, through his words and experiences, and through the eyes of those who knew him well.

“How come his mother’s skin is bright while her son’s is way darker?”
Barack Obama’s mother did not live to see her son’s rise, but she shaped the essence of this president.

Everything about Barry seemed different to his classmates and first-grade teacher, Israela Pareira, at S.D. Katolik Santo Fransiskus in Jakarta, Indonesia. He came in wearing shoes and socks, with long pants, a black belt and a white shirt neatly tucked in. The other boys wore short pants above the knee, and they often left their flip-flops or sandals outside the classroom and studied in bare feet. Barry was the only one who could not speak Bahasa Indonesia that first year. Ms. Pareira was the only one who understood his English...some boys communicated with him in a sign language they jokingly called
“Bahasa tarzan.”

Appearances are deceiving. Lil' Barry has been, and always will be what the situation demands him to be...nothing more...nothing less. The real answer to the question, "Who is this guy?" is this...
He is a facade, a placard, a poster, a misanthrope, a Golem.

In Jewish tradition, the golem is most widely known as an artificial creature created by magic, often to serve its creator. The word "golem" appears only once in the Bible (Psalms139:16). In Hebrew, "golem" stands for "shapeless mass."

The Talmud uses the word as "unformed" or "imperfect" and according to Talmudic legend, Adam is called "golem," meaning "body without a soul" (Sanhedrin 38b) for the first 12 hours of his existence. The golem appears in other places in the Talmud as well. One legend says the prophet Jeremiah made a golem However, some mystics believe the creation of a golem has symbolic meaning only, like a spiritual experience following a religious rite.

Tax and Spend by Barack Obama

YEAAA! We are getting twenty-two new taxes on the books with Deformed Health Care. Jennifer Granholm and the Lefties say, however, that this is not enough. Much more tax revenue from those greedy rich is needed!

This is what yesterday's Supreme court decision will lead us to. Once "the people" get another payoff with some "free stuff" and the power mad elite get their grubby hands on another cash cow ponzi scheme, we will never be able to eliminate Obumacare from the lawbooks. It may be ammended, or variances made, but inevitably the plunderers will win the day and our republic takes another dive.
Socialism will out?...Maybe... 

America is now at war. It is a civil war, but no shots will be fired. It's a war over the Constitution, yet it will be through the Constitution that the winner will be determined.

Thanks For The Memories

Ohhhh my...suprise suprise...The Obumacare mandate is deemed valid by the Supremes. Who saw this one coming in an election year???Hmmmm?

Well the fight ain't over till the fat lady sings...OUCH fellas!

While we could be angry at you, Mr. President, for polarizing the nation, amassing $5 trillion in debt over 3.5 years, attempting to pass socialized medicine, pushing through fascist federal ‘green’ laws, usurping Congressional authority, and harboring a criminal somewhere in the Department of Justice (we think he’s hiding in the Attorney General’s office), we should actually thank you.

In fact, sir, if you wish to know who it was that supplied a rushing wind to feed the ‘brush fires of freedom in the minds of men‘, it was you.

Even your ‘friends’, the liberals, understand this. In an article from, John Presta goes to great lengths to talk about the Tea Party’s origins, and how it was your tyrannical actions that sparked it’s existence.

Of course, he did all he could to portray the Tea Party as a mob, just trying to stop a good man from doing something good …but to those of us who understood economics, healthcare, deficit spending, banking, and, oh yes, the Constitution, we understood that your actions hastened the destruction of our cherished liberties and the prosperity of the US. The nation knew it, and so the Tea Party mobilized. Your supporter, Presta, states, mocking a man who cared for his country:

The Tea Party was on the day that Rick Santelli went into a silly rant on CNBC. The date was February 19, 2009 and it is obvious that the rant was less about politics, and more about this new President, Barack Obama. His rant was about government and spending. It was about paying your neighbor’s mortgage that has an extra bathroom and they can’t pay their bills. President Obama had been in office less than a month.”
He further goes on to say,
What is evident that this was aimed at President Obama and nothing else. Thus, the Tea Party was born. The catalyst was Obamacare, which didn’t occur until March 23, 2010.”...(Snip)

Mr. President, the atmosphere at those Tea Party protests was exhilarating. It was a time of gathering for those who loved liberty, their country, their guns, and religion. It was a time where patriotism was contagious, and the brush fire raced from sea to shining sea. We who protested found that we were making history, and the events during the your administration were times we will never forget. Now, the nation’s movement back to conservatism, fiscal responsibility, and the Constitution is inevitable.
President Barack Hussein Obama, we do sincerely thank you.

Red Thursday

With the expected Supreme Court ruling on Obamacare and the pending House vote on contempt charges against the Obama regime, tomorrow should be a "RED Letter Day" for the Dear Leader. I can't wait to see what the White House spinmeisters will send us in the "Friday dump" press releases.
Expect an attitude of total denial by the Leftist media and a quick thuggish response by Lil' Barry...


I heard Beck read this letter today. Issa really nailed this one. Let us hope the Congress has the cajones to follow through. Read the entire text HERE.

Darrell Issa, chair of the House Oversight committee, has directly accused President Barack Obama of either obstructing a congressional investigation or of complicity in the botched Fast and Furious ‘gun-walking’ operation...(snip)

'Either you or your most senior advisers were involved in managing Operation Fast and Furious and the fallout from it, including the false Feb. 4, 2011 letter provided by the attorney general to the committee’ Issa wrote.

‘Or, you are asserting a presidential power that you know to be unjustified solely for the purpose of further obstructing a congressional investigation.’

Here is what I found that The Dear Leader has prepared for us this fall.

Is this a preemtive strike by Obama in response to what he sees as a threat to his power and the possibility of criminal charges against his administration?

Is this the precurser to the cancelation of November elections and the installation of a true dictatorship?

With the declaration of a "state of emergency" at this time anything is possible with this Leftist Mob in power.

Obama Declares State of Emergency


June 25, 2012
Dear Mr. Speaker: (Dear Mr. President:)
Pursuant to section 204(b) of the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (IEEPA), 50 U.S.C. 1703(b), I hereby report that I have exercised my authority to declare a national emergency to deal with the threat posed to the United States by the risk of nuclear proliferation created by the accumulation in the Russian Federation of a large volume of weapons-usable fissile material.
In Executive Order 13159 of June 21, 2000, the President found that this same risk constituted an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States and declared a national emergency to deal with that threat. The United States and the Russian Federation had entered into a series of agreements that provide for the conversion of highly enriched uranium (HEU) extracted from Russian nuclear weapons into low enriched uranium (LEU) for use in commercial nuclear reactors. There were concerns that payments due to the Russian Federation under these agreements may be subject to attachment, garnishment, or other judicial process, in the United States, which could put implementation of such agreements at risk. In Executive Order 13159, the President therefore ordered blocked all property and interests in property of the Government of the Russian Federation directly related to the implementation of the HEU Agreements so that it would be protected from the threat of attachment, garnishment, or other judicial process.

The New Democrat Voter Base

Now that Obama is solidifying his new Latino voter base...via his "Catch, Release, Vote" policy, Janet Nepolitano has made it perfectly clear that no matter what the Supreme court says, DHS/ICE will not enforce immigration law as it is written...especially in states that have enacted laws similar to the one in Arizona.

As we await the upcoming Supreme Court ruling on Obamacare on Thursday, I would remind everyone what I have predicted will come before next November.

We will see more unconstitutional executive sidestepping of the law and congressional / judicial authority by Our Dear Leader. The Left will not be deterred without a fight and they must be dealt a major setback this fall. 
Whether by decree or by regulatory stiff arming, Obama's policies will continue to advance. This will include as many forms of voter fraud as can possibly be authorized by the Dept. of Social Justice and Eric Holder himself.

Government’s essence is controlling people—forbidding things, requiring things, and extracting the taxes to pay for things. Our founders realized the power to control people, as opposed to offer or invite is potentially dangerous. It must be limited and channeled, as George Washington described fire: a dangerous servant and fearsome master.

The Founders figured out controlling people involves three different kinds of power: making rules, enforcing rules, and resolving disagreements between the enforcers and the people. They also realized the controllers could be kept honest and fair only if those different powers were kept apart: the people who make the rules shouldn’t be the ones who enforce them; the enforcers shouldn’t decide disputes between themselves and the people.

That’s why the Founders arranged separation of powers. They created Congress in Article I, the Executive in Article II, and the Supreme Court and judiciary in Article III...

Here, I would have you scan some links and use the facts below to remind our man "Romnesty" and our representatives what the actual cost of an "open border policy" is. I would also state here that many of these figures are somewhat outdated and have been skewed by Leftist bureaucrats.

The number of illegals in our nation reported at 11.5 million; is in my opinion; much higher than official figures would indicate, as many have flown under the radar long ago.

1. $11 Billion to $22 billion is spent on welfare to illegal aliens each year by state governments.

5. $17 Billion dollars a year is spent for education for the American-born children of illegal aliens, known as anchor babies.

Cross Dressing For Kindergartners

Blazing Cat Fur...Note that this was sent me by a concerned reader. The following is taken from page 22 of an elementary grades curriculum guide written for the Toronto District School Board by one Lee Hicks, a "Trans Activist", and God Have Mercy, an elementary school teacher in the TDSB system.

The Guide is entitled
Both/and.. This section makes it plain that students are to be encouraged to become cross dressers. As you read the entire document you will realize that this is not a curriculum guide but rather a radical political agenda. My hope is that Lee Hicks is immediately transferred to Valley Park Middle School where he and his GSA can compete for space with the Mosqueteria.

"If we as educators continue to focus children as “girls and boys” ... it doesn’t actually matter how progressive our ideas are... because our practice and the language with which we impart it will remain entrenched in the belief that there are only two genders." (page 18, entitled "early learner - kindergarten program")

From Page 22 of the TDSB's Cross Dressing Guide For Elementary School Students.

4. Once the demonstration self-portrait of myself is done, I ask the class members to all take a minute, close their eyes, and think carefully about the outfit that they either have or wish they had to best describe their true self… We will save the sharing of these ideas for the next day, just before watching the both/and video and commencing the self-portrait creating.

5. Directly after the idea of “what do you most want to draw yourself wearing” has been suggested into the students’ brains, I read them 10 000 Dresses by Marcus Ewert. This book is about a kid named Bailey who happens to be born in a body that people read as “boy”. She dreams of all of the dresses that she would wear if she could make what she saw in her head…. and if her family would realize that actually –she is a girl on the inside.

Following this reading, there are lots of different directions that the discussion may go, all of which can provide a helpful segway into watching both/and.

For example;- which of the dresses that Bailey imagines in the story would YOU most like to wear, and why? (definitely NOT a discussion that is just for female-bodied kids…it should be clear to male-bodied people in the class that it is perfectly fine and good and encouraged for them to have an opinion about this as well).

- how do you think that the different people in this book are feeling?... why do you think that they have these feelings? i.e. why do you think that Bailey’s brother is being so mean to her?

- how do you think the story would be different if Bailey really WAS a boy on the inside

Are You Listening?..Stoopid Americans!

Here we see true genius on display on Capital Hill. The first two examples come from the elite GOP strategists as they tell us dumbed down Americans what we are allowed to hear and believe.

Romney upset that economy improving, tells governors to stop talking about it!

Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign asked Florida Governor Rick Scott to tone down his statements heralding improvements in the state’s economy because they clash with the presumptive Republican nominee’s message that the nation is suffering under President Barack Obama, according to two people familiar with the matter.

Scott, a Republican, was asked to say that the state’s jobless rate could improve faster under a Romney presidency, according to the people, who asked not to be named.

What’s unfolding in Florida highlights a dilemma for the Romney campaign: how to allow Republican governors to take credit for economic improvements in their states while faulting Obama’s stewardship of the national economy.

Republican governors in Ohio, Virginia, Michigan and Wisconsin also have highlighted improving economies...America Blog

On a similar note...

After we all spent another anxious morning waiting for a possible ruling on ObamaCare from the Supreme Court, only to be put off again until next week, Speaker Boehner sent out a memo to his fellow House Republicans insisting that there are to be no political shenanigans in the event of an ObamaCare-smackdown.
“There will be no spiking of the ball,” he wrote in a memo to the conference.
“Republicans are focused on the economy … We will not celebrate at a time when millions of our fellow Americans remain out of work.” …

He repeated that the House will vote to repeal any part of the law, which he referred to as “ObamaCare,” left standing by the Supreme Court, and that any attempt to enact new reforms will be “step-by-step.”

“Republicans will not repeat the Democrats’ mistakes,” he wrote. “We won’t rush to pass a massive bill the American people don’t support.” …

“No one knows what the Court will decide, and none of us would presume to know,” Boehner wrote...Hot Air

Now, as we begin to "drain the swamp" and dump some of the Congressional deadwood...we see what a few of these revered pundits really think of their dear constituents.

Bloomberg Businessweek is out today with "A Congressional Exit Interview", in which retiring Senators Olympia Snowe and Kent Conrad join outbound Congressmen Gary Ackerman and Geoff Davis to reflect on the state of affairs on Capitol Hill. The whole thing is pretty nauseating, suffused as it is with the kind of hand-wringing that passes for political courage amongst longtime legislators (it turns out political parties tend to be partisan!). But it is Congressman Ackerman (a New York Democrat) who, when asked about comity on Capitol Hill, gets the money quote:

"Society has changed. The public is to blame as well. I think the people have gotten dumber. I don’t know that I would’ve said that out loud pre-my announcement that I was going to be leaving. [Laughter] But I think that’s true. I mean everything has changed. The media has changed. We now give broadcast licenses to philosophies instead of people. People get confused and think there is no difference between news and entertainment."

So there you have it: a man lamenting the lack of cooperation in American politics by denigrating the intelligence of those who disagree with him.

What's remarkable here is that Ackerman is saying out loud what many of the "the system is broken" thumbsuckers really believe: that their benighted constituents are unworthy of the service of our congressional philosopher-kings.

And yet what's the latest fetish for this group? Compulsory voting. In fact, if you're willing to go to the lengths of Thomas Mann and Norman Ornstein, it's compulsory voting with a cash lottery. Who knew that we could strengthen the nation's sense of civic responsibility just by treating elections like one of those fake giveaway police stings?

Perhaps Ackerman is right that the problem is the intelligence of the American voter. Since he's obviously enjoying his newfound freedom from political pressure, I'll look forward to him filing a bill to hem in the franchise prior to his retirement.
DUH...Wat him say MO???

Obama Tells It...As HE Sees It

It's becoming increasingly clear that President Obama is not burdened with too heavy a commitment to honesty.

Obama's truthiness
Jonah Goldberg
This is hardly a shock about any politician, but revelations of dishonesty hurt some more than others. Announce that Bill Clinton has been speaking falsely, and it hits the ears with as much force as the news that birds fly, fish swim and dogs lick their own nether regions.


But Obama was supposed to be different. He was a "lightworker," an ocean tamer and cynicism slayer. In short, he was supposed to be too good to be true -- and it turns out he was.

That's one obvious conclusion to be drawn from the all-too-delayed vetting of the president's biography, most notably in David Maraniss' aptly titled new book, "Barack Obama: The Story," but also at news outlets such as National Review Online and Big Journalism.

Obama claims his maternal grandfather fought in Patton's army and liberated Nazi death camps. He says his paternal grandfather was tortured by the British imperialists in Kenya. He's claimed his Indonesian stepgrandfather was killed by the Dutch while fighting for independence. None of that is true.

Unions Take It On The Chin Again

The Supreme Court ruled Thursday that unions must give nonmembers an immediate chance to object to unexpected fee increases or special assessments that all workers are required to pay in closed-shop situations.

The court ruled for Dianne Knox and other nonmembers of the Service Employees International Union's Local 1000, who wanted to object and opt out of a $12 million special assessment the union required from its California public sector members for political campaigning.

Knox and others said the union did not give them a legally required notice that the increase was coming.

Here’s the case:

Issue: (1) May a state, consistent with the First and Fourteenth Amendments, condition employment on the payment of a special union assessment intended solely for political and ideological expenditures without first providing a notice that includes information about that assessment and provides an opportunity to object to its exaction?

(2) May a state, consistent with the First and Fourteenth Amendments, condition continued public employment on the payment of union agency fees for purposes of financing political expenditures for ballot measures?
Plain English Issue: Whether a state can require its employees to pay a special union fee that will be spent for political purposes without first giving the employees information about the fee and a chance to object to it.
Read the full ruling here, even Ginsburg ruled against it.
“the First Amendment does not permit a union to extract a loan from unwilling nonmembers”
 From ZIP

The union, and the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, said the annual notice that the union gives was sufficient. The high court disagreed in a 7-2 judgment written by Justice Samuel Alito.

"When a public-sector union imposes a special assessment or dues increase, the union must provide a fresh ... notice and may not exact any funds from nonmembers without their affirmative consent," Alito said.

To The Internet Gulag With You!

According to CNN:

         Western governments, including the United States, appear to be stepping up efforts to     censor Internet search results and YouTube videos, according to a "transparency report" released by Google.
In the last half of 2011, U.S. agencies asked Google to remove 6,192 individual pieces of content from its search results, blog posts or archives of online videos, according to the report. That’s up 718% compared with the 757 such items that U.S. agencies asked Google to remove in the six months prior.

Overall, Google received 187 requests from United States law enforcement agencies and courts to remove content from its Web properties from July to December, up 103% from the 92 requests the Mountain View, California, company received in the previous reporting period.

In one incident cited in the report, a U.S. law enforcement agency asked Google to take down a blog that “allegedly defamed a law enforcement official in a personal capacity.” The company did not comply with that request.

In another, a separate law enforcement group asked Google to take down 1,400 YouTube videos (Google owns YouTube) because of “alleged harassment.”
Eeek! That may make you think twice before waltzing around the internet.

How long will it be until it will become "verboten" to expose the Dear Leader's lies?

Big Journalism

The media loves to come up with catchphrases that boil down who they are and how things operate in the world of politics. Phrases such as, "It's the cover up, not the crime," or, "It's the lie that gets you." Both of these statements have always proven true, at least for every Republican under the sun, but most certainly not for Barack Obama.

According to Obama's chief Palace Guard, Ben Smith, biographer David Maraniss has uncovered at least 38 lies in Obama's biographical accounts of himself. Moreover, since New Media started vetting Obama this year, two other epic whoppers told by the President have been discovered: Bill Ayers was not

"This is a guy who lives in my neighborhood, who is a professor of English … He is not somebody who I exchange ideas from on a regular basis."
We've also learned that Barack Obama was a MEMBER of the New Party, which completely contradicts what his campaign told the media in 2008.

Pro-Life School Bus FIRE BOMBED in Rockford, IL

Rockford, IL – ( – 6-15-2012 – by Rockford Pro-Life Initiative –

A large school bus, owned by Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Academy, that is well known throughout Rockford for its beautiful pro-life pictures and words asking people to “pray to end abortion”, was fire bombed on Friday night. The damage was extensive to the bus as windows were broken in on both sides and fire bombs were thrown inside to cause maximum damage.

It has been speculated that this bombing of a pro-life Christian school bus is in retaliation for the closing of the Rockford abortion mill that is located not far from where the school bus was attacked.

It’s interesting that abortion supporters in Rockford not only kill children in the womb but may well have destroyed a school bus used by children as an act of revenge for the closing of their child killing center...More at Pro-Life Corner

President Obama Plays Golf for the 100th Time

Happy: The president played his 100th game of golf this weekend in Chicago

President Barack Obama hit a major milestone as he marked his 100th time on the links during a Father’s Day weekend getaway in his hometown of Chicago.
Despite the fact that the 50-year-old Obama had never golfed before taking office in 2009, his love of the game is well known, and often subjected to criticism by conservative pundits and political opponents.
In April, presumptive republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, who is not a golfer, told a conservative radio host that Obama’s love for the game displayed a poor work ethic, ABC News reported...Kenya Central

"Obviating" The Climate Change Scam

You may link to this deceptive and self aggrandizing account of Lisa Jackson's tenure at the Obama EPA if you wish. However, I must warn you that some of the language may be WAY ABOVE your conservative intellect and your pay grade.
This snippet is at the end of her interview...and clearly this is what the Obama regime thinks of most Americans; at least those without an Ivy League indoctrination...

The Guardian

Q. If you were writing a headline for your work on the climate issue at EPA, up to now, or for whenever your work is done at EPA, what would you want it to be?

A. "In accordance with the law, we moved forward with sensible, cost effective steps at the federal level on climate, using the Clean Air Act." And I would have a second sentence — see, I can't write headlines! But it would be something like, "The progress at state and local levels, combined with the federal level, does not obviate the need" — you can't use obviate, it's above fifth-grade level! — "does not obviate the need for federal legislation to address this incredibly important challenge for this and future generations."

For a clear interpretation of Jackson's interview visit The PJ Tattler

I hope you will bear with me today, as there is much afoot on the Green Front. After all Obuma has made it clear that climate change will be the most important issue of his election campaign.

Now on to the latest GREEN NEWS...

Bank of America / Obamabank commits 50 Billion Dollars to fight climate change... 

Throwing good money after bad?
Call it the greening of Wall Street...National Review

In the wake of a $30 billion commitment to new environmental investments by Wells Fargo in April and a $40 billion promise from Goldman Sachs this month, Bank of America will announce a 10-year, $50 billion initiative of its own on Monday.
Facing bad publicity on practically every front, the big banks are highlighting what has quietly become a hot growth area in recent years — backing projects and companies in sectors like renewable energy, emissions reduction and reduced-carbon transportation.
Bank of America officials said the initiative encompassed steps including underwriting initial public offerings for so-called green companies, making loans to consumers who buy hybrid vehicles and helping developers to retrofit old factories as well as investing in renewable energy.
I’m all for a private-sector company investing or lending its capital as they see fit. If they want to lose Warren Buffett’s money, that’s fine by me.

Most recently, American Electric Power withdrew its application for a $1 billion retrofit of its Big Sandy plant in Kentucky; it now plans to shutter five of its 21 coal-fired facilities.

Nationwide, some 100 of 500 coal-burning plants are slated for the slag heap.

Many closings will come in Ohio, where Akron-based FirstEnergy was first out of the box in announcing several planned shutdowns. It spent five years and $1.8 billion installing scrubbers on its largest plant located on the Ohio River; costly upgrades to the smaller units simply didn’t make sense.

The lost capacity will be replaced mainly by cheaper natural-gas plants, but the shift will require costly improvements to transmission facilities, expected to run more than a billion dollars in Ohio alone. Projected electric-rate hikesalarmed Ohio small businesses, which protested to the state’s Public Utility Commission.

Those concerns seem justified, based on the results of a recent auction conducted by regional-grid manager PJM, which annually contracts for excess capacity three years out. Thanks to the plant closings, the auction prices in northern Ohio soared to $357 per megawatt, versus $136 per megawatt in PJM’s total area.

These auction quotes don’t translate directly into retail prices, but they foretell the direction.

Europe's most senior court is expected to rule on Wednesday that airlines based outside the continent should have to pay for their carbon emissions on flights to or from EU member states, in a crucial test of climate change regulation.

The US (AND CHINA) have threatened to take retaliatory action against the European Union unless Brussels drops its plan imminently to start charging any airline flying into the bloc for its carbon ‘pollution’.
