Obama’s passport

This was forwarded to me.

Whether the Obama Birthers are right or not, all the President has to do is answer one Question

   Paul Hollrah

While I’ve little interest in getting in the middle of the Obama birth issue, Paul Hollrah over at UTFSM did so yesterday and believes the issue can be resolved by Obama answering one simple question:

What passport did he use when he was shuttling between New York , Jakarta, and Karachi?

So how did a young man who arrived in New York in early June 1981,without the price of a hotel room in his pocket, suddenly come up with the price of a round-the-world trip just a month later?

And once he was on a plane, shuttling between New York , Jakarta and Karachi , what passport was he offering when he passed through Customs and Immigration?

The American people not only deserve to have answers to these questions, they must have answers. It makes the debate over Obama’s citizenship a rather short and simple one.

Q: Did he travel to Pakistan in 1981, at age 20?
A :Yes, by his own admission.

Q: What passport did he travel under?
A: There are only three possibilities…
1) He traveled with a U.S. Passport,
2) He traveled with a British passport, or
3) He traveled with an Indonesian passport.

Q: Is it possible that Obama traveled with a U.S. Passport in 1981?
A: No. It is not possible. Pakistan was on the U…S. State Department’s  “no travel” list in 1981..

When Obama went to Pakistan in 1981 he was traveling either with a British passport or an Indonesian passport.

If he were traveling with a British passport that would provide proof he was born in Kenya on August 4, 1961, not in Hawaii as he claims.
And if he were traveling with an Indonesian passport that would tend to prove he relinquished whatever previous citizenship he held, British or American, prior to being adopted by his Indonesian step-father in 1967.

Whatever the truth of the matter, the American people need to know how he managed to become a “natural born” American citizen between 1981 and 2008..

Given the destructive nature of his plans for America, as illustrated by his speech before Congress and the disastrous spending plan he has presented to Congress, the sooner we learn the truth of all this, the better.

If you Don’t care if Your President is not a natural born Citizen and in Violation of the Constitution, then Delete this and go into your cocoon.

If you do care then Forward this

Climate Change

Global climate change is a scam

This started off in response to comments on an article I DIGGed. There are a lot of idiots on DIGG pushing Global warming and calling anyone who disputes their so called theory deniers.

I have plenty of facts that Global warming is a hoax as do all of us who KNOW that global warming/climate change is a scam and the only people claiming it exists stand to profit from making us change our life styles or are their blind followers. Which are you? If you believe in Global warming because leftist media or school teachers told it’s a fact, Where are their facts? All made up, distortions and outright lies. It is a THEORY and theories are open to question and change all the time. These are the same people who were telling us climate theory said we were going to have another ice age in the early 1970s.

Owl Gore is the biggest hypocrite and liar around, he is one of the biggest personal users of energy in Tennessee, has a mine (believe it is Nickel but not sure) on his property that is on the EPA clean up list and is a major seller of “carbon Credits”. GE makes CFL lights, wind turbines, selling Carbon Credits and is HEAVILY supporting climate change and a MAJOR supporter of Obama and others who are trying to push this lie on you. see GE’s incestuous relationship with Obama

Now Oboma and the Democrats in Congress Pelosie and Reed are trying to push through carbon taxes which will drive your energy costs through the roof. Oboma has been quoted as saying he wanted to see gas/fuel prices over $5 a gallon so you would have to give up your cars and use public transportation when he was a senator. I though he said he wasn’t going to raise your taxes.. Also said his administration and bills would be transparent and open and published on the Internet for what was it 15 days? So You the public can see what is going on. Then why are they trying rush all this legislation through with out publishing it on the Internet where you can see it and passing it in the middle of the night when even your congress persons have not READ WHAT THEY ARE VOTING ON. WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!! They are trying to take control of everything from banking, insurance, auto industry, energy and now your health care. If that isn’t socialism then what is? Socialism has failed every where it has been implemented. Name me one thing government does well. Well!? Social Security is going broke, Medicare is nearly broke and full of corruption, the veterans administration has terrible health care and you want these people to “fix the heath care crisis” they claim exists? Our government controlled schools suck, they don’t teach they brain wash kids with liberal ideals. I could go on and on about how about everything the government does sucks but I’m getting off track here. There isn’t ONE thing government has ever done that hasn’t been extremely more expensive than what they said it would be in the beginning. Oboma has already doubled the deficit since he has been in office and if everything they have passed so far is implemented will spend more money we don’t have than ALL the presidents before him combined and he’s still spending more!! The Democrats are running the economy with all this spending and are destroying the value of the dollar by printing money to cover their insane spending spree. We are so far in debt that China and the middle east don’t want give us any more credit!

Here are some links that show Global Warming/Global Climate Change is all a scam and a lie.

Global Warming Petition Project 31,478 American scientists have signed this petition, including 9,029 with PhDs denying global warming.

It is a fact for the last few years we have been experiencing global COOLING. The earths climate changes because of the SUN primarily, not anything man is doing. The sun as been at solar minimum for the last few years and has had a lack of sun spots not seen in decades.

Obama’s Supreme Court nominee

This CONSERVATIVE ALERT is a special message from:

Senate GOP Caving In On Obama’s Radical Court Nominee — Call Their Home Offices TODAY To Say ‘Get A Backbone!’:

ALERT: This week, we’re launching an all-out blitz to ensure that Barack Obama’s Supreme Court nominee is NOT crammed down our throats without a fight. Senate Democrats are trying to rush through this radical leftist nominee in the U.S. Senate…

And Senate Republicans are LETTING them do it — unless WE force them to STOP it!

As you know, President Barack Obama has nominated Judge Sonia Sotomayor to the U.S. Supreme Court. He has the Constitutional right to nominate whomever he wants to — but the woman he has nominated is the most radical leftist he could have picked.

There MUST be a long, robust debate over her nomination… But Senate Republicans are ready to let her pass through quickly, unless we’re able to change their minds THIS WEEK.

We MUST remind them of exactly who this woman is, and what she believes:

  • She is a far-left judicial activist;
  • She believes in racial and gender bias from the courts;
  • She is a member of the pro-illegal immigration group LA RAZA;
  • She does NOT believe in the individual Second Amendment right to “keep and bear arms”;
  • She is hostile to private property rights;
  • She is a pro-abortion judicial activist;
  • She supports giving Statehood to Puerto Rico — under biased conditions;
  • She supports giving voting rights to convicted murderers who are still serving time in prison.
  • Her rulings have been over turned in the Supreme Court several times. Just recently she was over turned for ignoring the law and denying firefighters who earned the right to promotions and giving their jobs to minorities.

THAT is who Senate Republicans are allowing to be crammed down our throats — unless we can FORCE them to STAND UP to the Democrats NOW!

TAKE ACTION: This week, all of the Senators have returned to their home states for the Independence Day holiday break. THIS is when they are forced to actually LISTEN to their constituents for a change — they aren’t safely tucked inside the Washington, D.C. “bubble,” but have to face YOU AND ME, the ones who VOTE to decide whether they get to keep their jobs.

THIS is our opportunity. You see, the Democrats have proven in recent years that judicial nominations can’t move forward unless there is at least a 60-vote majority willing to cut off all debate on the nomination. Right now, the Republicans only have 40 votes… BUT, the Democrats don’t actually HAVE the remaining 60 votes on their side, thanks to the absence of 3 Democrat Senators!

This means that Democrats really have just a 57-40 majority — meaning that, on any issue INCLUDING A VOTE ON SOTOMAYOR, the GOP can actually lose two Republican votes and still deny the Democrats the votes needed to stop a filibuster!

We have a chance THIS WEEK ONLY to DEMAND that every single GOP Senator stand strong against the Democrat bullying, and REFUSE to allow them to cut off debate and discussion over Judge Sotomayor’s nomination. It’s simply insane for the Senate Democrats to rush a vote on this. She’s been on one court or another for 17 years; she has an extensive record, so it takes a while to go through 3,600 cases. Her questionnaire is still incomplete — among other deficiencies, she has not provided materials from seventeen cases she handled as a prosecutor. Nor has she provided materials from any appellate cases she handled. And she has not provided materials from over 100 speeches she has given.

The Democrats want to push through a vote before the Senate’s August recess. WE MUST NOT LET THAT HAPPEN. That means we need every single GOP Senator to know exactly how the American people feel about this.

Can YOU take just a few minutes today, to call some — or even all! — of the 40 Republican Senators’ home state offices, and tell them one simple thing:

“Do NOT let the Democrats rush through a vote on the nomination of Judge Sotomayor! The confirmation debate and the final vote should occur in September, to allow the American people to engage in this debate!”

It’s that simple. PLEASE, call as many of these 40 Republicans as you can TODAY:

Rabidly Anti-gun Sotomayor is Unacceptable

Obama Picks Anti-gun Judge for the Supreme Court
— Time to start contacting your Senators right away

Gun Owners of America E-Mail Alert
8001 Forbes Place, Suite 102, Springfield, VA 22151
Phone: 703-321-8585 / FAX: 703-321-8408

Friday, May 29, 2009

Unless you’ve taken a very long Memorial Day vacation, you’ve no doubt
heard the big news.

President Obama has picked an anti-gun radical to replace Justice David
Souter on the Supreme Court.

Obama’s pick is Judge Sonia Sotomayor, who is currently on the U.S.
Court of Appeals for the Second District. There she has racked up an
anti-Second Amendment record and has displayed contempt for the rule of
law under the Constitution.

The Heller decision put the Supreme Court in support of the
Constitutional protection of the individual right to keep and bear arms.
Sotomayor, a politically correct lover of centralized government power
(as long as she is part of the power elite), immediately went into
counter-attack mode against the Heller decision.

Sotomayor was part of a three-judge panel earlier this year which ruled
in Maloney v. Cuomo that the Second Amendment does not apply to the
states. As she and her cohorts claimed, the Supreme Court has not yet
incorporated the states under the Second Amendment. Until then, she
believes, the Second only applies to the District of Columbia.

This is pure judicial arrogance — something Sotomayor relishes (as long
as she is one of the ruling judges). In fact, protection of the right
to keep and bear arms was a major objective for enactment of the
Fourteenth Amendment, as recently freed slaves were being disarmed and
terrorized in their neighborhoods.

But Sotomayor disdains this important right of individuals, as indicated
by an earlier opinion from 2004. In United States v. Sanchez-Villar,
she stated that “the right to possess a gun is clearly not a fundamental

Sotomayor has held very anti-gun views, even as far back as the 1970s.
Fox Cable News reported yesterday that in her senior thesis at Princeton
University, she wrote that America has a “deadly obsession” with guns
and that the Second Amendment does not guarantee an individual right to
firearms ownership.

Sotomayor’s Second Amendment views go hand in hand with her politically
correct views on the law and the role of judges.

In a speech given at Duke University in 2005, she made it abundantly
clear that judges are involved in making policy. Realizing that this
did not sound very judicial (even though most judges act on this basis),
Sotomayor tried to laugh off her brazen admission: “I know this is on
tape and I should never say that, [audience laughing], because we don’t
make law — I know. Um, okay. I know, I’m not promoting it, I’m not
advocating it.” The audience continued to laugh. They got the joke.

But Sotomayor’s joke will be on us and our liberties if she gets
confirmed to the Supreme Court. And that is why we need to start
contacting our Senators early and often, urging them to vote against
this dangerous nomination.

ACTION: Please contact your two Senators and urge them to oppose the
nomination of Judge Sonia Sotomayor to the U.S. Supreme Court. You can
go to the Gun Owners Legislative Action Center at to send your Senators the
pre-written e-mail message below.

—– Pre-written letter —–

Dear Senator:

If you cherish the Second Amendment and agree that it protects an
individual right to keep and bear arms — as stated by the recent Heller
decision — then you must vote against Judge Sonia Sotomayor.

This choice for the Supreme Court is totally unacceptable! Consider a
partial rendering of her anti-gun record:

  • Sotomayor ruled in United States v. Sanchez-Villar (2004) that “the
    right to possess a gun is clearly not a fundamental right.”
  • Sotomayor was part of a three-judge panel earlier this year which
    ruled in Maloney v. Cuomo that the Second Amendment does not apply to
    the states. This makes her more liberal than the Ninth Circuit, which
    stated in April that the Second Amendment does apply to the states.
  • Sotomayor has held very anti-gun views, even as far back as the 1970s.
    Fox Cable News reported on May 28 that in her senior thesis at Princeton
    University, she wrote that America has a “deadly obsession” with guns
    and that the Second Amendment does not guarantee an individual right to
    firearms ownership.

I will consider a vote in favor of Sotomayor as the most anti-gun vote a
Senator could cast. To send an anti-gun liberal judge to the Supreme
Court for the rest of her life is to establish “legislation without
representation.” After all, she says that the courts are where policy
is made, and once she’s there, we’ll never be able to vote her out.

Again, please vote against this dangerous nomination.

GE’s incestuous relationship with Obama

Everyone needs to boycott GE!

GE owns majority share of NBC UNIVERSAL “Formed in May 2004 through the combining of NBC and Vivendi Universal Entertainment, NBC Universal owns and operates a valuable portfolio of news and entertainment networks, a premier motion picture company, significant television production operations, a leading television stations group, and world-renowned theme parks. NBC Universal is 80% owned by General Electric and 20% owned by Vivendi.” NBC UNIVERSAL TELEVISION GROUP is NBC, MSNBC and Telemundo, NBC News also includes “NBC Mobile provides news and information updates and show excerpts to cell phone users throughout the day reported by the anchors and correspondents of NBC News, and NBC News Radio produces up-to-the-minute radio reports for affiliated stations in all major markets across the country.”

NBC Owns and Operates TV Stations in major cities all over the country;
WNBC (NBC4 New York), KNBC (NBC4 Los Angeles), WMAQ (NBC5 Chicago), WCAU (NBC10 Philadelphia), KNTV (NBC3 San Jose/San Fransisco),
KXAS (NBC5 Dallas/Fort Worth), WRC (NBC4 Washington), WTVJ (NBC6 Miami), KNSD (NBC7/39 San Diego), WVIT (NBC30 Hartford),

GE though their holdings in NBC promoted the election of Obama. It has come to my attention (Glenn Beck) that not only is GE a major producer of CFL (Compact florescent Light bulbs), but they also are the major producer of wind turbines and have a major stake in “Carbon Credits”. If Obama pass all his Green Energy and Cap and Trade plans GE will stand to make billions.

Obama is quoted as saying on Earth day “He pushed personal responsibility, calling on every American to replace one incandescent light bulb with one compact fluorescent. The president also said the leaders of the world’s major economies will meet next week to discuss the energy crisis.”

For his remarks, Obama chose Iowa, second only to Texas in installed wind capacity.

He announced his administration is creating the nation’s first program to authorize offshore projects to generate electricity from wind turbines and ocean currents. The Interior Department on Wednesday issued the long-awaited regulations governing how leases will be issued for the development of such energy sources and how revenue will be shared with coastal states.”

Under “Cybersecurity”, Congress Will Be the Internet’s Greatest Threat!

By Brad O’Leary

Gird your blogs, because if liberals in Congress get their way,
President Obama will have sole discretionary authority to shut down
the Internet or critical parts of the Internet should he feel his
presidency is being tested. Worse, under the guise of cybersecurity,
Obama will essentially be granted the power to destroy free speech on
the web.

On April 1st of this year, Senators Rockefeller, Snowe, Bayh and
Nelson introduced bills S. 773 and S.778, collectively called the
Cybersecurity Act, which would give President Obama dictatorial power
over the Internet during a time of national crisis or emergency.

All of the bills’ sponsors voted for the Bipartisan Campaign Reform
Act of 2002 that prohibited organizations and individuals from running
advocacy ads against candidates 60 days in advance of a general
election. Now it seems these same people have conjured up a gag order
for the Internet.

According to the current drafts, under the Cyber Security Act of 2009
the President may “declare a cybersecurity emergency and order the
limitation or shut down of Internet traffic to and from any comprised
federal government or United States critical infrastructure
information system or network”. He may also “order the disconnection
of any Federal Government or United States critical infrastructure
information systems or networks in the interest of national security.”

What constitutes “cybersecurity emergency” or “critical infrastructure
information system or network” is left completely up to the President
to define. We know that the Administration, according to Rahm Emanuel,
never wants “a serious crisis to go to waste”. We also know the
Administration supports the regulation of free speech on the Internet.

President Obama’s choice to lead the powerful Office of Information
and Regulatory Affairs is none other than Cass Sunstein, a radical
Harvard law professor and supporter of the Fairness Doctrine for the
Internet. According to Sunstein, “A system of limitless individual
choices, with respect to communications, is not necessarily in the
interest of citizenship and self-government.”

Obama campaign fundraiser and FCC Chair nominee, Julius Genachowski,
is a supporter of “Net neutrality”, the first step in applying the
Fairness Doctrine to the Internet.

“Net neutrality” proponents like Genachowski would have government
decide what content Internet operators and network owners must
provide. Incredibly, they claim this is to keep the Internet free and
open to all, when in reality, their goal is to usher the heavy hands
of federal regulators into the tent.

Stifling any venue where ideology competes with left-wing mainstream
media has always been a goal of the left and Obama. Obama has just
been more evasive in his means by supporting policies such as “net
neutrality” and wobbling on the reinstatement of the Fairness Doctrine
to talk radio. Liberal members of Congress are now set on sending
America on an unconstitutional b-line away from Uncle Sam and directly
to Big Brother.

The Cybersecurity Act is also includes a provision where “The
Department of Commerce shall serve as the clearinghouse of
cybersecuirty threat and vulnerability information to the Federal
Government and private sector owned (emphasis mine) critical
infrastructure information systems and networks.” Shelving all privacy
laws including the requirement for warrants, the Secretary of Commerce
“shall have access to all relevant data concerning such networks
without regard to any provision of law, regulation, rule or policy
restricting such access.” Senator Rockefeller made it clear in his
statement what “relevant data” this act could include when he stated
“We must protect our critical infrastructure at all costs ­ from our
water to our electricity, to banking, traffic lights and electronic
health records ­ the list goes on.”

While we have worried about cyber attacks from Russia and China, who
would have thought the greatest threat would come from members of our
own Congress.

Shut Up, America!
The End of Free Speech

By Brad O’Leary

In Shut Up, America! The End of Free Speech, Brad O’Leary shines light
on a dark mission of the left, shutting down conservative voices ­
and, in the process, eviscerating the First Amendment.

Brad O’Leary exposes the agenda and the strategy behind the plan —
how Congress and the president will rationalize the changes using the
language of “diversity” and “fairness” and “tolerance.” He also
addresses how the impending legislation and regulations will doubly
impact Christian talk radio — and eventually every other form of
communication in America.

While supplies last, every copy of Shut Up, America! purchased from

“If you want to see the blueprint for the plot to silence talk radio,
this is it,” says Joseph Farah, founder of WorldNetDaily and WND
Books. “How important is this? If you want to see the people in charge in Washington remain there perpetually, ignore this threat. The plot to end free speech and the free press in America is the ultimate incumbent protection plan.”

Obama Pushing Treaty To Ban Reloading

Obama Pushing Treaty To Ban Reloading
— Even BB guns could be on the chopping block

Gun Owners of America E-Mail Alert

Phone: 703-321-8585 / FAX: 703-321-8408

Tuesday, April 21, 2009

Remember CANDIDATE Barack Obama? The guy who “wasn’t going to take away
our guns”?

Well, guess what?

Less than 100 days into his administration, he’s never met a gun he
didn’t hate.

A week ago, Obama went to Mexico, whined about the United States, and
bemoaned (before the whole world) the fact that he didn’t have the
political power to take away our semi-automatics. Nevertheless, that
didn’t keep him from pushing additional restrictions on American gun

It’s called the Inter-American Convention Against Illicit Manufacturing
of and Trafficking in Firearms, Ammunition, Explosives, and Other
Related Materials. To be sure, this imponderable title masks a really
nasty piece of work.

First of all, when the treaty purports to ban the “illicit” manufacture
of firearms, what does that mean?

  1. “Illicit manufacturing” of firearms is defined as “assembly of
    firearms [or] ammunition… without a license….”

Hence, reloading ammunition — or putting together a lawful firearm from
a kit — is clearly “illicit manufacturing.”

Modifying a firearm in any way would surely be “illicit manufacturing.”
And, while it would be a stretch, assembling a firearm after cleaning it
could, in any plain reading of the words, come within the screwy
definition of “illicit manufacturing.”

  1. “Firearm” has a similarly questionable definition.

“[A]ny other weapon” is a “firearm,” according to the treaty — and the
term “weapon” is nowhere defined.

So, is a BB gun a “firearm”? Probably.

A toy gun? Possibly.

A pistol grip or firing pin? Probably. And who knows what else.

If these provisions (and others) become the law of the land, the Obama
administration could have a heyday in enforcing them. Consider some of
the other provisions in the treaty:

  • Banning Reloading. In Article IV of the treaty, countries commit to
    adopting “necessary legislative or other measures” to criminalize
    illicit manufacturing and trafficking in firearms.

Remember that “illicit manufacturing” includes reloading and modifying
or assembling a firearm in any way. This would mean that the Obama
administration could promulgate regulations banning reloading on the
basis of this treaty — just as it is currently circumventing Congress
to write legislation taxing greenhouse gases.

  • Banning Gun Clubs. Article IV goes on to state that the criminalized
    acts should include “association or conspiracy” in connection with said
    offenses — which is arguably a term broad enough to allow, by
    regulation, the criminalization of entire pro-gun organizations or gun
    clubs, based on the facilities which they provide their membership.
  • Extraditing US Gun Dealers. Article V requires each party to “adopt
    such measures as may be necessary to establish its jurisdiction over the
    offenses it has established in accordance with this Convention” under a
    variety of circumstances.

We know that Mexico is blaming U.S. gun dealers for the fact that its
streets are flowing with blood. And we know it is possible for Mexico
to define offenses “committed in its territory” in a very broad way.
And we know that we have an extradition obligation under Article XIX of
the proposed treaty. So we know that Mexico could try to use the treaty
to demand to extradition of American gun dealers.

Under Article XXIX, if Mexico demands the extradition of a lawful
American gun dealer, the U.S. would be required to resolve the dispute
through “other means of peaceful settlement.”

Does anyone want to risk twenty years in a sweltering Mexican jail on
the proposition that the Obama administration would apply this provision
in a pro-gun manner?

  • Microstamping. Article VI requires “appropriate markings” on
    firearms. And, it is not inconceivable that this provision could be
    used to require microstamping of firearms and/or ammunition — a
    requirement which is clearly intended to impose specifications which are
    not technologically possible or which are possible only at a
    prohibitively expensive cost.
  • Gun Registration. Article XI requires the maintenance of any records,
    for a “reasonable time,” that the government determines to be necessary
    to trace firearms. This provision would almost certainly repeal
    portions of McClure-Volkmer and could arguably be used to require a
    national registry or database.

  • ACTION: Write your Senators and urge them to oppose the Inter-American
    Convention Against Illicit Manufacturing of and Trafficking in Firearms,
    Ammunition, Explosives, and Other Related Materials.

    Please use the Gun Owners Legislative Action Center at to send your Senators the
    pre-written e-mail message below.

    —– Pre-written letter —–

    Dear Senator:

    I am urging you, in the strongest terms, to oppose the Inter-American
    Convention Against Illicit Manufacturing of and Trafficking in Firearms,
    Ammunition, Explosives, and Other Related Materials.

    This anti-gun treaty was written by international bureaucrats who are
    either stupid or virulently anti-gun — or both.

    This treaty could very well ban the ability to reload ammunition, to put
    new stocks on rifles lawfully owned by American citizens, and, possibly,
    even ban BB guns!

    There are too many problems with this treaty to mention them all in this
    letter. The rest can be read on the website of Gun Owners of America

    Please do not tell me the treaty has not yet been abused in this way by
    the bevy of Third World countries which have signed it. We do not
    expect the real ramifications of the treaty to become clear until the
    big prize — the U.S. — has stepped into the trap.

    For all of these reasons, I must insist that you oppose ratification of
    the treaty.


    What’s Your Current GOA Status?

    Obviously, we now face years of invigorated attacks on our gun rights.
    Shutting down gun shows, prohibitions on specific calibers, another
    semi-auto ban, and the anti-gun extremists’ Holy Grail of mandatory
    federal licensing and registration of all gun owners — these are just
    some of the horrors that we already know we’ll have to defeat head-on.
    Not to mention this treaty nonsense. Meanwhile, we’ll take every
    opportunity to go on offense and advance the Second Amendment.

    It can’t be done without every single voice being counted. That’s why
    we are asking you to consider making the commitment of becoming a Gun
    Owners of America Life Member. By doing so, you put the politicians on
    notice that neither you nor GOA is going away — that no matter who’s in
    the White House, there is always going to be a solid wall of resistance.

    Now is a perfect time to become a Life Member. And if you aren’t a GOA
    member at all, isn’t it time you became one?

    Please go to to upgrade your
    participation in GOA.

    Who’s responsable for AIG, Wallstreet crash

    I think people need to get a grip and quit threatening people who work for AIG. Congress approved the bonuses and with the help of the liberal media is trying to pass the blame on AIG and others. It is Congress that as passed these massive spending bills with out even reading them that is the problem!

    If you want to punish someone for our current problems then you should have voted the Democrats out of office and not elected Obama last fall. The Democrats have controlled Congress for the last two years. Since it is too late for that now we need to take our anger out on Congress and the White House, let them know you are not happy at all with what they are doing! You need to see some of my previous posts like:

    The men who brought down Wall Street Let me give you a clue, they were all Democrats!

    The Sub – Prime disaster the Democrats caused this too.

    Presidential Election Where I warned about some of what would happened if Obama got elected and the Democrats control both houses. Actually it has been worse than I imagined..

    Ann Coulter lays it out that Wall Street is Democrat territory, these big bankers are NOT
    Republicans or conservatives. On second though maybe we should punish them too.

    Gordon Gekko is a Democrat

    Obama Confirms Illegal Alien Amnesty Coming Soon

    Last Wednesday, Obama promised Hispanic Caucus an Illegal Alien Amnesty Coming Soon!

    Pelosi calls enforcement “un-American”

    Help us Smash Amnesty and “re-educate” Pelosi


    Last week was hell week for immigration enforcement. If you care about this issue, please read this entire email carefully, and then take every step your friends here at NumbersUSA ask. Here’s the update:

    1. On Wednesday, President Obama seemed to rent out his immigration policy to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus and the Mexican government.
    2. And on Saturday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was caught on tape saying that immigration enforcement agents are “un-American” when they acted to enforce the laws.

    Maybe you’ll want to rub your eyes two or three times and re-read the above paragraphs.

    Statements like “renting out” his foreign policy to the Mexican government are pretty alarming. We at NumbersUSA are usually careful to avoid heated rhetoric.

    But read the details on the NumbersUSA web site, and you’ll see while I HAVE to let off some steam this time!

    After spending the first weeks of his term engulfed by the financial mess, Obama has decided it’s time to make nice with the Congressional Hispanic Caucus. He met with them Wednesday in California. After the meeting, the White House issued a press release saying Obama promised the Hispanic Caucus to push ahead soon with the same “Immigration Reform” i.e. Illegal Alien Amnesty that McCain and Kennedy were promoting back in 2007.

    Obama also said he would soon be traveling to Mexico soon to meet with Mexico’s President Calderon to work out U.S. immigration policy. That sounds like Obama is going to let the country responsible for sending us the most illegal aliens re-write America’s immigration laws. What’s next?

    And did you hear about the House Speaker Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s wild statement last Saturday? She called our immigration enforcement officials “un-American” for daring to deport some illegal aliens. (This was actually caught on tape.) Aren’t we supposed to be deporting illegal aliens?

    Do you see where this is heading? The administration and Democratic leaders in Congress have removed all doubt about where they stand.

    Amnesty for the 11-12 million illegal aliens is inevitable, unless we act now.

    Please take all these actions today:

    1. Go to Send a no-cost fax telling the President Obama that you will never agree to an Illegal Alien Amnesty.
    2. Phone the White House switchboard and tell them what you think! White House switchboard number is: 202-456-1414. And call your members of Congress (we provide phone numbers here. Let’s break the switchboards today!
    3.Make a gift to NumbersUSA so that we can ramp up our efforts right now, as the fight grows deadly earnest.
