IT SHOULD BE DEMO-CARE, NOT OBAMA-CARE

What a year!
Lots of things have come to pass, the greatest of which is the end of the 111th congress. With all the power they ever wanted democrats could do nothing but add to defects and the angst of freedom loving Americans. Millions who laid there votes on the first term senator from Illinois watch as the man they called “Messiah” crashed and burned. (Ok, he had a good December) This was a train wreck of biblical proportions. He had both houses, The White House and placed two “Judges” on the Supreme Court. So the whole first year he spends every penny of political capital on bailouts for those who got him the big desk, and feeding the entitled masses in coastal blue states. Tarp, Omnibus, Porkulus, and many more massively earmarked bills followed. When it came time for Obamacare, he had spent it all. Oh to be sure he got his bill, but only by ramming it down the throats of every petrified American who worried someone would tell Obama what comes after “Trillion.”
This law should be called Demo-care: Only Democrats voted for it, and a Democrat signed it, so lets let them have it!!
I believe the pendulum had to swing back hard. The liberals pushed their socialist agenda on a country to smart to play along. The scrap heap of history, filled with commie kook ideas, was no place Americans wanted the country they loved. The question now, who will rise up to meet the challenge of an electrified electorate unfazed by empty promises.

Now you do what we say or you get sent home to stay.

So as the year ends, our challenge is clear. The best thing for me is the ending of the visits from Diorreah and Bill Minnich, both of whom have faded into vapor even before absentee ballots were handed out for Novembers romp. As pleasant as constipation, I believe we have heard the last of these two fringe fag friends. 
Go out there and make it a good year. Anything short of that lacks effort and choice. This may be my last year here, (doctors can be wrong too) and I intend to make the right moves each and every day so that in my life, God is glorified and people are dignified.

If you really believe life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it, you’d be wrong. With preparation and active engagement, you will be the one keeping people guessing. You can control the action enough to sway the balance in your favor, but effort and preparation are paramount.

That’s what I will be. I choose life without boundaries.
I will not be called a bigot or ridged simply because I will not move from my Gospel principles.
I will move conservatively forward, always taking just a moment to look back at what has worked and not worked in the past, so to avoid misguided mistakes. And so should you! Stick around. Let’s talk and be a voice for the conservative movement and keep the momentum moving right.

There's the Right way....and then there's whats left.

THE FIX

Here's a solution to all the controversy over full-body scanners at the airports:

All we need to do is develop a booth that you can step into that will not X-ray you, but will detonate any explosive device you may have hidden on or in your body. The explosion will be contained within the sealed booth.
This would be a win-win for everyone. There would be none of this crap about racial profiling and the device would eliminate long and expensive trials.
This is so simple that it's brilliant.
I can see it now: you're in the airport terminal and you hear a muffled explosion. Shortly thereafter an announcement comes over the PA system, "Attention, standby passengers! We now have a seat available on flight number..."

WHERE'S THE LINE FOR JESUS???

BEST NOT TO BUY FROM BEST BUY - JINGLE-FITS

On Feb 19th 2009 I purchased a new Asus Computer from Best Buy. I purchased a 1 year warranty as well.

On October 19th 2010 that computers mother board failed after sitting next to my desk for the entire time I owned it.
It was a six hundred dollar computer.
Best Buy wants $595.92 to fix it though I am still paying Best Buy every month for it because they said if I finance it, I would get a better deal and join their frequent buyers club.
Bottom Line: Don’t think for one moment Best Buy is your Best Buy-dea. That place should be gone “Buy” next Christmas if that’s how they treat their customers.
And on the the subject
of extended unemployment benefits,
I have this little ditty I call,



“Jingle-fits”

Stumbling through the snow

In slippers and turtleneck

To the mailbox I go

To get my benefit check

Then I grab my coat and pants

And head out to the car

The first stop is my local bank

And then the local bar



Oh my luck is down, I have to frown

I just can’t find a job

Please send that check of entitlement

Cuz I worked so very hard

I buy a few rounds and pound them down

And then decide to drive

Now I need fourteen more checks

To pay for my DUI



I know this may seem harsh

Even a little rude

But when will people realize

Some things are up to you!!

Workers cannot afford

To pay you to sit home

Especially when the working class

IS PAYING FOR YOUR LOAN!!!



Get off your rump you Forest Gump

Your 99 weeks are gone

And suddenly you clearly see

You’ve been sitting around too long

Now democrats with lame duck hats

Wanna give you more of our dough

When will it end my jobless friend

There is work, but you just say….NO!

I’M SO GLAD YOU ASKED ! ! !

I hope this post finds you all healthy and, hopefully, working. It’s time for a rant. I’ve been away too long not to come back and give you all what you come here for, which is my perspective. So, since you asked…


THE ELECTION: No time to gloat really. We all knew what was going to happen, we just had to wait and do our civic duty. So far, what I hear is really good. If they stay on the focus that Washington has a spending problem and not a revenue or tax problem, as has been stated, we are taking a big step in the right direction. The layers of redundancy in many social programs have one agency saying another is the one that will help you and they just push you around and around. No one seems to have or employ common sense. If we really want to save money, we need to stop having five agencies for one purpose.

We need term limits and we need to stop generational theft. Just paying the interest on the debt is a huge burden on the people. I’ve heard the figure $43,000 is what every man woman and child owes. If that’s true, that’s just nuts.

The fact is a President with half a brain would see this and do what is right: Stop spending. This one won’t. His intent is unclear. But any realistic approach would include spending cuts and the elimination of redundant entities within the government. This is how the right must now hold the high ground and continue on offence rather then listen to the left’s responses, which are rife with lies the press repeats. Stay on the principles the people you represent dictate. Turn a deaf ear to them and you’re through.

FOOTBALL:
 My son played organized football for the first time this fall. Because he made the commitment, I told him I would coach. I asked my pastor, Kurt, to help me coach and he said he would. He ran the offence and I ran defense and Special Teams. Well, two weeks ago we played our last game, winning all six games we played. We scored 142 points and our defense allowed only 25 points in those six games. To my great friend and Sheppard Kurt, and all those sixth graders, Jack, Alex one and Alex two, Josh, Bryce, Carm, Riley, Andy, Walker (the Animal) Myles, and my son, thank you for the greatest season I have ever been happy to share. You kids are going to be great. Keep up the grades and never let anyone tell you your dreams are too big or your God is too small. I will never forget what you guys did for me. God’s Blessing on you all!   
Hey hey how about dem Packers? We dump Harris, we have 8 men on injured reserve (IR) and Head Coach just placed an order for 7 more hot tubs. We have 6 wins and three losses and are tied with Da Bears for top spot in the North Division. Though we did not win and loose the games the way I’d predicted, as luck would have it I had them 6 & 3 at the bye week. Coach Mike’s teams have always been slow starters because of the sophistication of the offense. The depth of this team is amazing and fortuitous.

GO PACK GO!!!

I want to give a shout out
to my good friends
the ever amazing Teresa
and my new friend Scott.
May God Bless and keep you both healthy and safe.

WHO VOTES FOR THESE GUYS?: Powerful people who intentionally break the law are usually very smart, very coy, and more often than not are very privet people. They tend towards layers of lies to protect themselves. Few of the rich and lawless care for the spotlight and would rather stay in the shadows. The minority who are public figures, unwilling to understand that the truth will out one day, usually go down in flames.


One such major burnout hails from the state of New York.
HERE ME ON THIS: Rep. Charley Rangel was just re-elected by his constituents. For more than a year he has been under House as well as FBI investigations for improper use of campaign funds and fraud. Giving himself perks over and over and over and over and over and over again. But he has been in that seat so long the people of his district just keep putting him back in. Rangel could and very well should be a convicted felon by the end of 2012.

So if Rep. Charley Rangel was just re-elected by his constituents, will someone tell me what sort would re-elect this liar thief?

TO ADDRESS RUMORS: The fact is I have not been asked to work for the new governor in any capacity. Any reports to the contrary are simply wrong.

And to you knuckleheads from Minnesota who wanted our used up quarterback:
How’s that working out for yah?

IT AMAZES ME...

I’m amazed that there are some in this country who think we should turn our back on what was and make a new start. Those who say the old ways no longer are viable or useful should look in the mirror when they say such rubbish. How can they say it will not work when its principles have not been tried for a century? We need to rid ourselves of the belief that liberals have a new and better way to move us forward. They want division, and foist derision on those who speak out against this madness they want us to support. When Paul Krugman says Obama didn’t spend enough, I just want to shove his Nobel prize right up his USB port. You liberals are seeing your last days here in America as a power or influence. The people, seeing the extreme incompetence and policies of the Obama administration, will no longer sit idle as they destroy the very fabric we were cut from. Bill Minnich is a mad man destined to burn in hell for his antics. His ilk need to be silenced as a source for ideas or power. They serve only themselves and have no interest in country or victory in conflict. Be gone….

Oh and speaking of Bill, here we have one of his very favorite people. Rep. Barney Frank

SORRY FOR MY ABSENCE...

I have to apologize for my absence. I have taken on a few projects which have required my full attention. I have learned that if you do things right, pay close attention to details and have a work ethic that is inexorable, you become very popular with like minded people. And people like that are afforded great respect and authority.


So what I have been doing is helping a candidate here in Wisconsin get elected. He will win. He will be governor of Wisconsin without question. I made a direct choice to get involved with the Republican Revolution in order to facilitate my future interests. There may be work for me under our new governor. He and I attended high school together with him being one year older than I am.

You don’t need me to tell you how bad things have become for democrats. You don’t need me to tell you governorships are very important in this revolution, even more that senate or house elections. I wish I could share with you what I am doing, what I know and give you specifics, but I have been sworn to secrecy.

I will be here from time to time. Just not as active. Thanks for coming and God Bless You.

OVERREACTED???

NEWSWEEK and Fareed Zacaria seem to feel we did. We overreacted. Yes and next news-weak we’ll here how we made victims of Islamic extremists. Here was American power mixed with young men and women with a mission to exact a death blow to anyone responsible for that black day that Iran’s president says never happened, just like the holocaust and throw that guy “Jesus” in there too, because he was just a nice guy, not God’s Son or anything like that…

And my president wants to sit down with this same murdering thug and…talk.

People who write “stories” like this need to know that for nine years the sons and daughters of Americans fought, bled and died to keep this enemy inside their own five yard line.
Fareed Zacaria, a Muslim and the author of the cover story, really does not see that his words only serve to enrage and embolden those who wish to exact punishment, retribution and revenge on his peers.
And then I get people like Liberty in here saying it was all politics.

It’s not.
It’s about remembering; Not just those who died, but those who killed them.
It’s about justice. Lest we forget, in the 2 years prior to 9/11, we were defending Muslims and saving Muslims in Bosnia.
It’s about Honor. Writing this story dishonors our fallen troops and those who stand in the gap defending this country.
Fareed Zacaria, writing this story shows why the only place we could ever read such tripe is waiting to see the dentist. Nobody buys this rage anymore and I suspect you have hastened it’s demise.

And just so you can recall, Christian toloance for these radical vermin ran high over three years ago, now when someone here wants to burn THEIR book, they get all upset. Spare me...

Quote The Raven

Is there anyone here as bad at forecasting as I am? I hate to even mention how good my predictions have been the last three years: Don’t want to jinks myself. Most times I predict and then the opposit happens. But lately, I'm not bad. 



When you talk about professional football around these parts (south eastern Wisconsin) the line between Bear and Packer territory blurs because of simple proximity to each other, there are teams and there are legends. To our south the bitter rivalry simmers but lets be honest here: Since the day Bret Favre Started for the Packers, Green Bay has had TWO starting quarterbacks. The Bears lead the league with 23. Jay Cutler is running for his life and may be the only one really grasping the offence right now. Lovie will be gone by Halloween.


“The Problem” is north and west of Lambeau. Number four no longer worries me, he annoys me. You see, from my perspective, here in Wisconsin, especially Green Bay, we hold loyalty higher than most anything you can name minus The Trinity. “The Problem” is, he forgot his loyalties on the way to drama camp. The name Favre will forever be synonymous with “Indian Giver” and “Back Stabber.” You don’t come back to the north division after being out in New York one year because of the weather.


Fortunately, every “Problem” has a solution.


Meet “The Solution.”


12 – 4


First round bye.


Beat New Orleans in NFC title game.


Packers lose to the Ravens in the Super Bowl.

QUICK HITS

Well here I am, some two weeks plus from my last post. So I have a little explanation, some observations, and hope you’ll all forgive me for being selfish and staying away so long.

First, for you working warriors out there, an honest question: Do you feel a “change” in your employers’ attitude towards you? Have expectations been altered?

From this guys hole in the fence I can assure you: You are not alone.

I’m going on two years now without a raise while my performance reviews continue to score in the 95 percentile. My job requires me to work different times on any given day. Enthusiastic flexibility is required. I just have caught this feeling in the wind that things are not looking good for small business and the trickle-down effect has been potent.

ImanObama continues to vacation (sixth time in just over 7 months) just to get away from the drumbeat of an angry and anti-government electorate. My last vacation was in March of 1987. Democrats can’t run from the President fast enough.

I praise God for Obama. He has single handedly awakened a hypnotized public from a costly sleep. He has shown America elections have consequences. These consequences were foreseeable, but the press failed to tell us who this man really was and McCain’s futile attempts to knock him down or even lay a glove on him makes him an accomplice.

I let not my heart be troubled because I see the last combat troupes left Iraq. These women and men who have endured in the most inhospitable of places fighting for freedom now know liberties’ price. They’re experiences change the game and the course of this countries future. They have my undying respect. Their families have my prayers. I hope they see the time they were apart was time well spent. They changed a shackled country into a fledgling democracy. Fragile as it is, it only takes a spark to get a roaring fire.

The CD project continues. We are close to mastering the disc.

According to this Obama has spent more stimulating the economy than Bush did on the Iraq war.
I wonder which result is actually better

A quick check around my friends and adversaries sites shows me the left has so little to talk about that’s positive, some seem almost suicidal. What they are doing is changing the template and the outrage and anger Americans now have will not allow them set that premise. What they do best is talk. If they’d shut up and listen they could save their butts.

Just a few quick hits here about topics of the day:
Just glancing around the headlines tells me some things never change.

Colorado is paying the bills on the backs of pot smokers according to this article. Diogenes will need to puff a lot more to pay for his states deficit, but at least we know they have high expectations.

Just when does this economy become this administrations problem and when are they expected to do something about it? The answer to both questions appears to be, "Not yet."

Six vacations in 8 months? My last vacation was in March of 1987. All these bills and laws that have passed, none of them were written by Obama. So just what is it he needs a break from? Maybe the better question is, “When do we get our break from this administration?”


Is NASA really the best tool to promote good relations with the Muslim world? In order to get a person to get terrorists to stop killing us, I guess it helps to be a rocket scientist.

Hummmm....

I’m truly puzzled. I’m puzzled by the press and their silence on issues paramount in every ones mind. I may be the last man on the boat with this issue and if I seem redundant or obvious, I’m sorry, but that is the very reason I feel something needs to be said again. These people who call themselves journalists seem to lack the obligatory passion for truth. They as well as the rest of us are the protectors of liberty, but they even more so for they are the mouthpiece of America. There are durable reasons why people have been driven away from the network news programs. Those who curse and taunt people who watch Fox News are rebels without a clue: They get their news from a left leaning press and loony kook fringe news sites to serve their agenda against the right. But if you ask the basic question: Why have so many turned to Fox and away from CNN, NBC, CBS and ABC, The simplicity of the answer infuriates the left causing them to be defensive. It is that very attitude that manifests itself in their telling of the news. They had no problem calling president number 43 a liar, war criminal or comparing him to Hitler. We were invited and encouraged to speak out against our leaders.


Not so much now.

Doing so now makes you racist.
Saying no now means you’re standing in the way of progress.

Who’s progress? Excuse me for being contrary but I don’t see me or my family making much of any “progress” at all.

I see a lot of people who are friends of the left making progress.

I see a woman about to become Supreme Court Justice and she has never sat on the bench. The press must think that’s ok because I’ve heard hardly a word about her “experience”

It wasn’t ok five years ago though for Harriet Mires: A vastly more qualified candidate.

Silence from the press on the important issues such as a Supreme Court Justice speaks volumes. Their silence speaks not of bias, for that is merely a symptom. It speaks of slothful and irresponsible countenance of the loss of so much liberty so swiftly. I don’t watch network news because its bias, I choose Fox News because of its hunger for truth and creative investigative reporting. Those speaking against it are simply supporting laziness and a left agenda, which is redundant, sorry.

WHITEFISH BAY .... A WAR STORY...

Today I ended a two week period in which I had one day off. (Sunday) I have had no time to asses the damage from the July 29th storm which destroyed our two room tree-house in the woods we own, as well as snapping a second mighty oak tree in half nearby. In two weeks I have slept ony 47 hours. My time has been in Whitefish Bay north of Milwaukee helping thousands of people whose homes were flooded in storms the prior week. My company lost fifteen hundred dollars when a home we were drying re-flooded. This month will be looked back at as a time when war stories were burned into my memory. I have seen natures’ wrath up close once again. Tomorrow I will scout the property for more damage which may be lurking in damaged trees ready to fall etc. The opportunities to witness have been extraordinary. I have seen a side of people no one wants to see: deep multiple losses and their homes, uninhabitable. Family treasures at the curb, being taken by garbage collectors and the collectors of garbage. I can’t remember praying more than I have the last two weeks. It has been profound.

PROOF OF LIBERAL STUPIDITY

Here we have Peggy West who is latino woman of the year and a member of the Milwaukee Common Counsel. She is a die hard liberal. She proposed a boycott of Arizona by the city of Milwaukee this week. This is a window into the mind of liberals. This is how they think. This is what they know. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reporter who shot the video and was present at the time did not report this for fear of charges of racism from the community. This video is now over 3 million hits with postings on the Rush Limbaugh show and nearly every national news outlet and many international news pages as well. She lived in Mexico. She is also, an idiot.

Personal Note:

This is a note to explain to my friends here in blogland what will be happening soon. The blog entries will be fewer over the next few weeks as I focus most of my discretionary time to the release of my new 16 song CD. This is a project which I have worked on for 5 years. I play all the instruments and do the majority of the vocal work. My wife, my brother Jeff and members of my old band, Saved By Grace, also helped and I am thankful for their hard work. This will be my third CD but my first solo work.The CD is the first of three: A trilogy of songs I wrote long ago mixed with new songs written with my new band. The band is nearly ready to perform and our first concert is this week, playing at Delavan’s new Band Shell in Phoenix Park. I lived in Delavan over 25 years attending all the schools in that city as a child. (I would say I grew up there but that hasn’t happened yet) From the response I have witnessed, this should be a very fun evening. So I will be away from the blog for two weeks as I finish the art work and master the music for release in September. Thank you for your understanding. See yah then…

SHOULD OBAMA RESIGN BECAUSE OF FEBRUARY 13th?

This artical is by Kevin McCullough
While defending his own policies President Obama has routinely been rude and sarcastic to his predecessor, George W. Bush. Yet Obama appears to be making the resident of the previous White House look like a genius compared to his own serious missteps in office.
Case in point – Interior Secretary Ken Salazar's performance and the communication of priorities on the issue of oil rig safety in the Gulf of Mexico. It seems incomprehensible that the president and other members of the administration still have jobs when it is now being reported that the federal government was apprised by BP on February 13 that the Deepwater Horizon oil rig was leaking oil and natural gas into the ocean floor.
In fact, according to documents in the administration's possession, BP was fighting large cracks at the base of the well for roughly ten days in early February.


Further it seems the administration was also informed about this development, six weeks before to the rig's fatal explosion when an engineer from the University of California, Berkeley, announced to the world a near miss of an explosion on the rig by stating, "They damn near blew up the rig."


It's also now being reported that BP was asking for the administration's help on this matter long before the deadly accident and the now gushing well of tar.


Which leads me to some questions for the president. If I were in front row of reporters in the White House briefing room, here’s what I’d like to know:


1. It appears, Mr. President, that you were informed by BP about problems on Deepwater Horizon on February 13 and the company wanted your help. What did you say?


2. Given this new revelation, Mr. President, how can you can sleep at night knowing that your inaction cost the lives of eleven men in Louisiana?


3. Did you inform the victims' families about these facts when you invited them to the White House for last month's photo op?


4. You've said, Mr. President, time and again, that the buck stops with you. Doesn’t that statement seem like something bordering on propaganda when you follow it up with what appears to be a false sense of outrage by telling Matt Lauer that you're looking for rear ends to kick?


5. Does the buck stop with you… or not?

6. Are you going to insist that Mr. Salazar step down from his post in disgrace and shame?

7. Will you hold another prime time television press conference and tell the entire truth to the American people? -- These would be the actions of a man who says that the buck "stops" with him.

8. I know when this news was breaking midday on Saturday about the latest BP developments that you and the Vice President were out on the golf course. Was it 39th or 40th time you've played a round in 18 months? (Just for a point of reference President Bush played golf 24 times in eight years.) Never mind, your priorities are for you to decide. At least until election night...


And now here's where I would not be able to stop myself from saying more...

It is one thing, Mr. President, to be forced to deal with unexpected circumstances and to have to deal with genuinely new problems. President Bush sure had to. He had to respond to an attack on our homeland that took the lives of 3,000 of our fellow citizens. But on his watch no other terrorist actions took lives of Americans on our soil, largely due to his steadfast leadership and willingness to accept no excuses on the matter.
But Mr. President, you seem to have very little leadership experience and it appears you have even less skill. Being a good dad and nice guy who sees the world as he wishes it to be is not exactly a resume of exacting leadership.
Your advisers have failed you and you have failed the American people on nearly everything we've asked of you.
Where you go from here is really your call, but you should consider two options if you genuinely love the country you work for and those of us you report to.
First, change your tactics. Second, appear to care. Attempt to engage and empower Americans who can and will go solve this mess.
Otherwise resign. For the good of the nation, for your own children's future, change your patterns or change your path... but change!

You do remember that word don't you, Mr. President?

OBAMA'S OVER THE TOP OVAL OFFICE ORATION

Obama can’t be so naive to not know the issues and the problems he faces are hurdles even the most preeminent politician would hard pressed to stop the crash course he is on. Now I don’t always agree with Peggy Noonan but she does make a great post-Oval Office speech point. Below are excerpts:

“The president is starting to look snakebit. He's starting to look unlucky, like Jimmy Carter. It wasn't Mr. Carter's fault that the American diplomats were taken hostage in Tehran, but he handled it badly, and suffered. Mr. Carter's opposite was Bill Clinton, on whom fortune smiled with eight years of relative peace and a worldwide economic boom. What misfortune Mr. Clinton experienced he mostly created himself. History didn't impose it. But Mr. Obama is starting to look unlucky, and–file this under Mysteries of Leadership–that is dangerous for him because Americans get nervous when they have a snakebit president. They want presidents on whom the sun shines.”



“The administration's failure to take impressive action after the spill dinged its reputation for competence. The president's failure to turn things around Tuesday night with a speech damaged his reputation as a man whose rhetorical powers are such that he can turn things around with a speech. He lessened his own mystique. Reaction among his usual supporters was, in the words of Time's Mark Halperin, "fierce, unforeseen disappointment." Dan Froomkin of the Huffington Post called the speech "profoundly underwhelming," a "feeble call to action." Former Clinton Labor Secretary Robert Reich called the speech "vapid." Lynn Sweet of the Chicago Sun-Times said the president looked "awkward and robotic." MSNBC's Keith Olbermann famously said "It was a great speech if you were on another planet for the last 57 days." Chris Matthews scored "a lot of meritocracy, a lot of blue ribbon talk." Mr. Olbermann, on Mr. Obama's well-written peroration: "It's nice but, again, how? Where was the 'how' in this speech when the nation is crying out for 'how'?" The president said he had consulted among others "experts in academia" on what to do about the calamity. This while noting, again, that his energy secretary has a Nobel Prize. There is a growing meme that Mr. Obama is too impressed by credentialism, by the meritocracy, by those who hold forth in the faculty lounge, and too strongly identifies with them. He should be more impressed by those with real-world experience. It was the "small people" in the shrimp boats who laid the boom.



And when speaking of why proper precautions and safety measures were not in place, the president sternly declared, "I want to know why." But two months in he should know. And he should be telling us. Such empty sternness is . . . empty.”

Empty? Is that what I’m feeling? Is it what you’re feeling? Or are you from Colorado Springs just feeling…Gay?

When you speak from the Oval Office, words mean things. Not that they don’t all the time, they do, but when you say them there, you better have something to say. We don’t need nebulous “wispers of some fine fine day when we get there, and we’re not sure how, and we’re not sure why we don’t know when or how but if we just….” OMG SHUT UP!!!

This is the Oval Office you snake oil salesman. You want the job or not? You have two dozen states that are looking into adopting the Arizona Immigration law, you have 1/4 of the Gulf of Mexico fouled with oil, you have two wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, you have Israel and Iran rattling sabers, you have Iran thumbing it’s nuclear nose at you and all you can do is use the Oval Office to push your green economic unproven and unreliable ideas on us that will raise energy costs for every American by no less than 30% and more like 50%.

You know, like it or not, we have to drill, and once and a while, someone spills. But when a spill this size happens, we need leadership. Getting knocked down happens, but should you decide to get up, you better ask yourself if that’s what you really want to do. Getting up means fighting on, and how you conduct yourself from the moment you get on your feet, is what matters most. We are close to 60 days now.

This spill does not mean “stop drilling” Mr. President. Yet you order the stopping of deep water drilling in the entire Gulf and expect bp to pay their salaries along with anything else that comes to mind. The idea that America only has a small percentage of the worlds oil supply is just stupid and to tell me this means you think I am stupid. Well you may be right, but I wasn’t stupid enough to vote for you, or any of your pie-in-the-sky promises you were making. Who really looks inept right now sir, is you. Governor Jindal was told by The President to call when things are not going well and he would help. The Governor called…repetedly and got nothing. You can't do what you say you will do.

 Obama then lectured Americans about our consumption. "We consume more than 20 percent of the world's oil, but have less than 2 percent of the world's oil reserves," he complained." (That’s just a flat out lie. We are only allowed to get at what they say we can and right now, that isn’t much on land) “And that's just part of the reason oil companies are drilling a mile beneath the surface of the ocean -- because we're running out of places to drill on land and in shallow water." Of course, Obama's chutzpah conceals the real reason oil companies are drilling in deep water -- which is that government arbitrarily continues putting land and shallow water off limits.


Comedian Jay Leno may have summed it up best when he quipped, "President Obama announced [Tuesday] that he wants to use the oil spill to move America toward green energy. I have a crazy idea. Maybe he should use the oil spill crisis to fix the oil spill."

Meanwhile, BP has acquiesced to Democrat demands for a $20 billion political slush fund, er, escrow account to be used to compensate people and businesses harmed by the spill. The fund will be administered by Kenneth Feinberg, a lawyer who oversaw both the 9/11 victims' fund and executive pay limitations under TARP. Democrats are further insisting that the $75 million liability cap for oil spills (passed by the Democrat-controlled Congress in 1990) be raised and retroactively applied to the company. Apparently, it doesn't matter that BP had already stated its intention to pay more than $75 million if necessary.

Obama declared that this is the best way to make the victims whole -- "We will make BP pay," he said -- but let's not forget that he has also ordered a six-month moratorium on drilling, to the outrage of politicians on both sides of the aisle and to the detriment of those working in the industry. Our fearless leader is hoping no one notices that he's giving Gulf residents money with one hand, while further crippling their economy with the other. To be sure, BP should be liable for the spill, as should Transocean and Halliburton, which were involved with the rig and the well. But as columnist Steve Chapman put it, "A villain as hated -- and justifiably hated -- as BP creates a temptation to indulge in excess, and Obama is not inclined to resist."

All of this notwithstanding, we should note that blaming Obama for not plugging the spill isn't entirely legitimate. However, he is certainly to blame for his initial dithering; for his overreach, which has exacerbated the disaster and could lead to similar accidents in the future; and for his pursuit of job-crushing energy policy (e.g., drilling moratoriums, cap-n-trade), which will further stifle a struggling economy.

Bureaucratic red tape has hampered cleanup by delaying oil burn-off and the use of dispersants because of environmental concerns (never mind the 60,000 barrels of oil a day gushing into the Gulf). The administration also waved off foreign assistance because of the ill-conceived 1920 Jones Act, which mandates U.S. union labor for particular jobs. Permit delays slowed the construction of barrier islands off the Louisiana coast, though that didn't stop Obama from bragging, "We've approved the construction of new barrier islands in Louisiana to try to stop the oil before it reaches the shore."

To add insult to injury, Louisiana's oil-sucking barges were halted by the administration because the Coast Guard had to "confirm" that the barges had fire extinguishers and life vests aboard. After those "concerns" were allayed, the barges were then stalled because the Coast Guard had "problems" contacting the company that constructed the barges.

If Obama were more concerned with stopping the spill of oil rather than the spill in his poll numbers, he would offer whatever legitimate assistance the federal government can provide and then get out of the way.
IF YOU ARE THE PRESIDENT, AND YOU SAY YOU WILL DO SOMETHING, AND THEN YOU DON'T DO IT, YOU TARNISH THE OFFICE OF PRESIDENT AS WELL AS THE GOVERNMENT AND THE PEOPLE OF THIS COUNTRY. SAYING WE MUST CHANGE OUR ENERGY POLICY WITH OUT KNOWING OR EXPLAINING HOW WE WILL GET "THERE" OR WHEN BUT WE MUST TRUST YOU TO GET US "THERE" WHEN YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW WHERE "THERE" IS, SOUNDS LIKE A RUDDERLESS CAPTAIN FROM "HERE".

THE DREAM IS OVER


Would someone please fire this President?!!!
He is no leader, he can't even follow.
He has command of nothing.
He is finished.

HE'S ON CRACK... HE HAS TO BE ON CRACK...


I can’t make heads or tails of this President. If you want to see a man who is truly a snake oil salesman able to talk out of both sides of his mouth, never listening to anyone else’s ideas or alternative solution, then look no farther than The White House and the man sitting in the big chair.

In this artical in The Washington Post this morning, Obama is truly talking pie-in-the-sky politics. He is asking for “emergency funds”…. AGAIN!!! What in God’s name is he doing? There are no funds for this. Washington is broke, the American taxpayer is broke, and congress has laws that say you can’t ask for any more money unless you provide funding by either cuts in spending or new capital. This request even asks for a cut to doctors who work on Medicare patients be delayed. Did you know the government can tell a doctor what he can make now?



So you need money so you can delay cuts so you can pay for police and pay fire fighters etc. so these people won’t be put on the unemployment dole so Obama’s unemployment numbers won’t look so bad so he will not fall to historic lows in the polls so he won’t be called the worst president ever because that would be racist because he is black because you can’t call this president anything other than wise and competent because because because because…. Because of the wonderful things he does.


"While some people say you have to spend and some people say you have to cut, the president wants to talk about both cuts and investing," Rahm Emanuel said.


What?!?


Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), called the letter full of "contradictions."


"He's calling on Congress to pass a jobless bill that will add about $80 billion to the deficit, but then calls for fiscal discipline; he says these measures need to be targeted and temporary, but then calls for extending programs passed in the stimulus more than a year ago.” Republicans have offered an alternative package that proposes to cover the cost of additional jobless benefits -- but not aid to state governments -- by cutting federal spending elsewhere. In contrast to the Democratic bill, the GOP measure would reduce deficits by nearly $55 billion over the next decade, according to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office. But we can’t wisten to those wascally wepubwickans.


Jesus, Mary and Joseph… My mind can’t even get past the first paragraph of this letter he wrote. My God what have we done… This is "Craziness on Crack." He can’t stop and won’t stop trying to prove we can spend our way out of this hole until we are all destitute.

THE DEATH NELL NO ONE IS TALKING ABOUT

Albert Einstein said, “The only difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits.” We see proof of this not just in my comments sections from Bill Minnich, Dio-genius and other anonymous sources, but lately we see it hourly in this Obama administration. What they do not understand is what will destroy this economy. Government cannot save this economy, but it can destroy it, and what I want to blog on here today is something we all must face. The freight train is about to go over the cliff and no one I know of is talking about this:

The Bush Tax Cuts are about to expire.

If this happens, we will return to the higher tax rates set by the Clinton administration in the 90’s. This spells disaster for American business large and small. I don't see anything in the Democratic Party that says they're not comfortable raising the top tax rates to the level they were in the Clinton administration. That does not mean they won't avail themselves of the 'we're still recovering' notion and say those should be effective in 2012 rather than 2011. That might be one of the big fights coming here. The House might say 2011; the Senate will have difficulty with that notion.

The facts are as we stand right now, while still under the Bush cuts, the top 1% income tax payers paid 40% of all taxes last year. If the cuts expire, that figure will rise to 53%. To simplify this, the top 1/5th of wage earners last year paid 83% of all taxes.

If you take these cuts away from the top wage earners in this country, you can forget this fractious recovery we find ourselves being told we are having today. There will be no jobs. There will be no money going for conventions, large events, real estate purchases or big ticket items which means no work for the little guys like you and me.

The Bush Tax Cuts are the lynch pin. If it is pulled, our economy will fall apart and Obama is ready to pull it with his new budget. No one is saying it, because it’s a terrible fact we will all be facing.

I guarantee it.

IS THERE ANYONE WHO KNOWS HOW TO PERFORM ETHICALLY IN THIS WHITE HOUSE?

I cannot find one person Obama has appointed to a position of power in this administration that actually does their job the way the law says the job should be done.

Example: Everyone in this administration, when a job is given to them, gets an ethics briefing. In that briefing they are told what they can and cannot do in the performance of their duties. One of the biggies in every one of those briefings is this issue of quid-pro-quo. You cannot give someone something in exchange for a vote or a favor or whatever. You can’t. It’s against the law. So when Joe Sestak gets offered a “high level job” (those are his words) in the Obama administration in exchange for ending his race against Arlen Specter, was the law broken. I don’t give a rats butt if it happens all the time, and it s funny democrats are saying that because the guy who coined that very phrase, Bill Clinton, is up to his neck in this suddenly and chief of staff Raul Emanuel is covered in mud.

Now, yet another story comes to light saying the White House plied Colorado House Speaker Andrew Romanoff last year in hopes he would forgo a challenge to Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet.

Ethics? What ethics? This White House is Crime Incorporated. I can’t find one single redeeming quality in the President or his staff or the people he has surrounded himself with. It’s like they don’t know how to do things legally. They have no experience in ethical behaviour. Who knew….

REMEMBER...

We have known war. The war we fight today is not our choice. Though we could choose to stop the fighting, if we did, many many more would die in the wake of Islamic terror and Taliban rule. If you don’t believe me you are sadly naive and have chosen to ignore the facts of the Muslim world and its edicts. I was born in a time when wars were fought but I was too young and before I became eighteen the draft ended. I guess some would say that’s lucky. I wouldn’t.




This next generation has lost its fair share of good women and men who have paid the ultimate price. Still more who engaged the enemy bare the physical and emotional scars left by the loss of limbs and friends: Those whose code it was to watch your comrades back as you watched theirs. In a way I regret having missed the opportunity. Stories of those who lay helpless in the jungles of south east Asia were read today from the pulpit of my Church. Tears flowed freely at the heroic efforts of those who placed their lives at the lowest priority so others could be pulled to safety. As these narratives were told, I wondered if I would have… could have… done what they did. One story told of a pilot who returned to an area in the Vietnam jungle 14 times to take wounded to MASH units while under direct orders not to return. Yet he went, again and again and again and again as bullets ripped through his chopper. When he finally landed after all were retrieved from the battle, he had been shot four times in the left leg and left arm. He lost the leg but won the Medal of Honor for what he did.

He died last Wednesday.

This Blog is for Him. I am not worthy of shining his boots.

There is no greater love than when a man lays down his life for another.

God only makes men and women like these when we need men and women like these.

You were made for such a time as this my friends. Never doubt your purpose.
We are at war.

I will remember and I will not forget.

TOO SERIOUS

I was talking to a close friend yesterday. He said, "You know Eric, your blog is so serious and in person you’re very funny. Your blog doesn’t really represent you. It could give people the feeling you’re too blunt and coarse.”


Well I was not aware the perception of my blog gave this impression. When I put up the Kim June video I thought that was funny. He didn’t see it that way but liberals have no sense of humor, so that was expected. My friend also said my blog was very “political and not very spiritual.” Well, ok, so much for Church and state separation…

So let’s talk Corporate Religion. Now, this is deep stuff and I need you to know the implications of corporate infiltration of the Church. I could tell you about it, but that would bore y’all so here’s my friend Tim Hawkins giving a much more exciting overview.

THE FOUR HEADED BEAST

It would appear we here in fly-over America are fascist racists who care nothing about the misfortune of those who are of Mexican heritage. Mexico arrests and imprisons for a minimum of two years and then deports anyone in their country illegally. They ask for papers. They listen to accents and decide arbitrarily on the spot if you are in their country illegally. This is not racist.


Arizona makes a law giving the authority to their law enforcement officials to arrest anyone who, after being questioned for other reasons, is in America illegally. This is racist. The government says it is. Why? Well the best reason I can find is the government is now being run by a four headed monster visa vie the democrat, left, progressive liberals, who need these illegal intruders votes to win elections. They don’t want to protect our boarders. They believe everything is working fine.

So here’s the deal: We’ll see you to the door, or maybe to the boarder, but one thing is for sure: Those who stood and applauded the Mexican President this last week are in for a big kick in the ass.

See you in November.

CLARITY

Here is a gimpse of The Revolution.
This is change we have to have, not change for the sake of change.
The liberals want roses and rainbows. We don’t play that here.
Gov Christie calls S-L columnist thin-skinned for inquiring about his 'confrontational tone'

We here at Revolution Central are all about shaking and waking America up.
We are not about deception and dishonesty or ramming trillion dollar
laws down the throats of the broke American taxpayers.
America is not about bowing and cow towing to the rest of the world.
America is fed up with The Fed and the trickery and cooked books from both sides of the isle.
This revolution is not about hope and it sure as hell is not change.
To move us forward we have to go back to what made us the best country on the planet.
We are not about saying we will get tough with Iran if they don’t come clean on their nuclear ambitions. We are not about saying Israel should stop building Jewish settlements on disputed land. We are not about apologizing for our shortcomings. These things embolden our enemies, undermine our allies and diminish The United States of America.
We are not about Teleprompters, and Chairman Mao ornaments on evergreens or saying Israel needs to be taught a lesson.

What the Revolution stands for is self reliance, self control, unshackled dreams and liberty. It’s about taxes being far too high for America to pull out of the recession we are in. It’s about government being responsible and respond-able. It’s become too big and too bloated to flex when problems like Katrina and oil spills in the gulf occur. We say if American business can downsize and streamline to be more efficient then government must too.
This means pain.
The biggest pain is the withdrawal from entitlements many Americans are hooked on.
It means if you need welfare, ok, but will you please pee in this cup so we can
know for sure you are not using welfare to support your criminal behavior?
As Ronaldus Magnus once said, “Trust but verify.”
We will not stand idle as Obama dismantles America.
We have arrived. We are the people.
We are sick of hope and tired of change.
We want clarity and we want freedom.
And by God we will have it.

QUICK HITS...

Fire her NOW!!
Janet Napolitano needs to be fired, and yesterday is not too soon. Twice now (that we know of) in just over four months a person on the “No Fly” list was allowed to be seated on a plane. This is inexcusable. Where are the congressional investigations? Where are the pundits calling for heads to roll? This openly gay limp wristed linguini spined mentally dysfunctional mutation who’s running Homeland Security is an insult. I am sick of looking at her lying ugy face telling the people of America she was on the oil spill from day one and the system worked blah blah blah. She couldn’t run 10 yards much less security for a day care. Fire her NOW!!

Next up is Bank of America. Now, I went to snoops.com and checked this out and it’s true. This is an actual conversation a former customer of Bank of America had:

Bank of America , can I help you?

Customer: Yes, I want to cancel my account. I don't want to do business with you any longer.

The Bank: Why?

Customer: You're giving credit to illegal immigrants and I don't think it's right. I'm taking my business elsewhere.

The Bank: Well, Mr. Customer, we don't want to see you do that, but we can't stop you. I'll help you close the account. What is your account number?

Customer: (gives account number)

The Bank: For security purposes and for your protection, can you please give me the last four digits of your social security number?


Customer: No.

The Bank: Mr. Customer, I need to verify your information, but in order to help you, I'll need verification of who you are..


Customer: Why should I give you my social security number? The reason I'm closing my account is that your bank is issuing credit cards to illegal immigrants who don't have social security numbers. You are targeting that audience and want their business. Let's say I'm an illegal immigrant and you've given me a credit card. I have a question about it and call for assistance. You wouldn't be asking me for a Social Security number, would you?


The Bank: No sir, I wouldn't.


Customer: Why not?


The Bank: Because you would have pressed '2' to speak in Spanish. We don't ask for that information when calling in on the Spanish line.

Obviously this is a bank I will never use. It IS NOT racist to say if you come to live in my country you have to learn the laws and the language. It IS racist if you are here illegally and you get preferential treatment from government or businesses and are given opportunities that those of us who are here legally do not get. It IS NOT racist to expect an immigrant to carry proof of citizenship with him at all times because that is what THE LAW REQUIRES. It IS racist to march and protest against the country you are in illegally.


Oh, by the way, if you think I’m wrong here, you’re racist.

And finally, I want to say something here about The National Day of Prayer which as of this posting is tomorrow. I have the right to assemble and pray. People fought and died for that right, and that is a debit we can never repay for Christ showed us there is no greater love than someone laying down their life for our own. This country needs God. It needs to be asking God for help. Its’ leaders need to be asking God for guidance. It’s people need to be praying for the next Supreme Court Judge, no matter who it is. In her 66-page opinion, U.S. District Judge Barbara Crabb said the holiday violates the "establishment clause" of the First Amendment, which creates a separation of church and state. She said,"I understand that many may disagree with that conclusion and some may even view it as a criticism of prayer or those who pray. That is unfortunate.”


No kidding. What is really unfortunate is her eye sight, because I see no such clause. Unbeknown to many liberals, the words "wall of separation between church and state" do not appear in our Constitution -- nor is this notion implied. Thomas Jefferson penned those words in an 1802 letter to the Danbury Baptist Association in response to a letter they wrote him objecting to Connecticut's establishment of Congregationalism as their state church. Jefferson assuaged their concerns, telling them the First Amendment prohibited the national government from establishing a "national church," but he concluded rightly that the Constitution (see the Tenth Amendment's federalism provision) prohibited the national government from interfering with the matters of state governments -- a "wall of separation," if you will, between the federal government and state governments.

There is ample evidence that Jefferson did not intend for that metaphor to become an iron curtain between church and state. Though he favored a secularist state, he knew that the Constitution offered no such proscription on religious observance and practice in the public square. Those, including judicial activists, who insist such was Jefferson's original intent, and that of our Constitution, are either historically nescient or they harbor a disingenuous motive to serve a secularist constituent agenda.

This fundamental violation of federalist principle was the central issue in 2003, when Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore defied an order by the 11th U.S. Circuit Court to remove a Ten Commandments monument from the state's justice building rotunda. Of such judicial diktats, Thomas Jefferson warned, "The Constitution [will become] a mere thing of wax in the hands of the judiciary which they may twist and shape into any form they please."

Indeed, it has become just that.

As for that utterly phony "wall of separation," Princeton scholar Stanley Katz says that correcting the "Jeffersonian myth" will have a "profound impact on the current law and politics of church and state." Joining the debate, Justice Clarence Thomas argues, "This doctrine, born of bigotry, should be buried now."

However, this issue is not merely about federalism and states' rights. It is about the rule of law and the future of our Constitutional Republic. That is precisely why Senate Democrats are so insistent on blocking the President's judicial nominations. They know that the real locus of central-government power now resides on the federal bench, not in the legislature. This struggle between judicial governance versus government of, by and for the people, is really at the core of the current debate.

Pray for peace. Pray for our troupes and their families. Pray for this nation, that under God, all men and women are equal and given the dream so many have worked hard to realize. But above all, pray God is allowed back where he should never have been chased out of: In the halls and gathering places where freedom is preserved and laws are made. May we turn from man, and look to God for guidance, for it is only with God we are assured the victory.

If you thought Bush was dumber than a box of rocks, maybe you should look into what Obama does in DC after the lights go down. I'm not one to believe tabloid trash, but this is getting interesting. This President has slipped up more than Bush ever did. You just don't have the press saying so every five minutes because they'd lose access to The Messiah. If this is as true as what this tabloid did to John Edwards, the fat lady is warming up right now.

IT IS WELL WITH MY SOUL...





I have to tell yah, I have zero problem with what Arizona and its governor are doing. The people there are through with illegal immigration and the 436,000 undocumented law breakers they have put up with. I would be too. All this new law does is make officials enforce existing laws, which federal boarder patrol agents won’t do. We don’t need reform, or new laws, or congress to act. Barack Obama is standing up for these leaches and drug mules and even the few Mexican citizens. Ranchers are being shot on their own land and Obama says Arizona is overreacting. He says Arizona is profiling: My favorite catch phrase of the year. With over 70% of the people of Arizona favoring the move, Obama is not just in the minority, he’s a racist. He has a problem with white Americans standing up against unlawful entry into our country. Obama doesn’t like the law: Never has. You run with that Mr. President. You start right at the four corners and run for the boarder, my money’s on the people winning. You keep up doing what people tell you not to do. Let me know how that works for yah. Tell you what, if we could oust the 30-40 million illegal’s here now, we just might be able to end the unemployment problem.
But then again, Obama wants people to depend on government for a paycheck and healthcare and retirement money and mortgage bailouts and corporate welfare and…. Well…you get the idea.
 

Ask yourself one question: If Obama doesn’t like what Arizona is doing, why is he not in Arizona telling the people of Arizona they’re wrong?

IT'S JUST ANOTHER ISOLATED INCIDENT... IT'S JUST ANOTHER ISOLATED INCIDENT... IT'S JUST ANOTHER ISOLATED INCIDENT... IT'S JUST ANOTHER ISOLATED INCIDENT....



NOTHING TO SEE HERE FOLKS, JUST MOVE ALONG.
THIS IS ONLY AN ISOLATED INCIDENT,
PLEASE RETURN TO YOUR NORMAL EVERYDAY MARCH
TOWARDS SOCIAL-ISLAM!

How do I loath thee… Let me count the ways. Well, some would say I can’t count that high, but I digress. As if another example was needed to demonstrate the utter poverty of honesty and transparency of this atrocious administration, Obama now finds himself on the wrong side of the law…again. He will be subpoenaed to give testimony in the Rod Blogojvcich case. Here we have a case of a Brittany Spears “Ooops I did it again.”


1. Obama may have lied about conversations with convicted fraudster Tony Rezko

Blagojevich's lawyers allege that Rezko admitted breaking the law by contributing "a large sum of cash" to a public official. Blagojevich's attorneys say that public official is Obama. Obama said that Rezko never relayed a request from a lobbyist to hold a fundraiser in favor of favorable legislative action. But the point may be moot: regardless of Obama talking/not talking to Rezko, Blagojevich's attorneys say that Obama refused the request regardless.

Redacted portion: However, the defense has a good faith belief that Mr. Rezko, President Obama’s former friend, fund-raiser, and neighbor told the FBI and the United States Attorneys a different story about President Obama. In a recent in camera proceeding, the government tendered a three paragraph letter indicating that Rezko “has stated in interviews with the government that he engaged in election law violations by personally contributing a large sum of cash to the campaign of a public official who is not Rod Blagojevich. … Further, the public official denies being aware of cash contributions to his campaign by Rezko or others and denies having conversations with Rezko related to cash contributions. … Rezko has also stated in interviews with the government that he believed he transmitted a quid pro quo offer from a lobbyist to the public official, whereby the lobbyist would hold a fundraiser for the official in exchange for favorable official action, but that the public official rejected the offer. The public official denies any such conversation. In addition, Rezko has stated to the government that he and the public official had certain conversations about gaming legislation and administration, which the public official denies having had.

Redacted footnote: The defense has a good faith belief that this public official is Barack Obama.

2. Obama may have overtly recommended Valerie Jarret for his Senate seat

Blagojevich's defense team basically alleges that Obama told a certain labor union official that he (Obama) would support Valerie Jarrett's candidacy for the Senate seat. Jarrett, referred to as "Senate Candidate B", is now a senior advisor to the president.

Redacted portion: Yet, despite President Obama stating that no representatives of his had any part of any deals, labor union president told the FBI and the United States Attorneys that he spoke to labor union official on November 3, 2008 who received a phone message from Obama that evening. After labor union official listened to the message labor union official told labor union president “I’m the one”. Labor union president took that to mean that labor union official was to be the one to deliver the message on behalf of Obama that Senate Candidate B was his pick. (Labor union president 302, February 2, 2009, p. 7).

Labor union official told the FBI and the United States Attorneys “Obama expressed his belief that [Senate Candidate B] would be a good Senator for the people of Illinois and would be a candidate who could win re-election. [Labor union official] advised Obama that [labor union official] would reach out to Governor Blagojevich and advocate for [Senate Candidate B] ... [Labor union official] called [labor union president] and told [labor union president] that Obama was aware that [labor union official] would be reaching out to Blagojevich.” (Labor union official 302, February 3, 2009 p. 3).

3. A supporter of President Obama may have offered quid pro quo on a Jarrett senate appointment

Redacted portion: Supporter of Presidential Candidate Obama is mentioned in a phone call on November 3, 2008, having offered “fundraising” in exchange for Senate Candidate B for senator (Blagojevich Home Phone Call # 149).

4. Obama maintained a list of good Senate candidates

Redacted portion: President-elect Obama also suggested Senate Candidate A to Governor Blagojevich. John Harris told the FBI and the United States Attorneys that he spoke to President’s Chief of Staff on November 12, 2008. Harris took notes of the conversation and wrote that President’s Chief had previously worked as Blagojevich's press secretary. Obama agreed of Staff told Harris that Senate Candidate A was acceptable to Obama as a senate pick. (Harris handwritten notes, OOG1004463) President’s Chief of Staff told the FBI that “he could not say where but somewhere it was communicated to him that” Senate Candidate A was a suggested candidate viewed as one of the four “right” candidates “by the Obama transition team.”

5. Rahm Emanuel allegedly floated Cheryl Jackson's name for the Senate seat

Redacted portion: President’s Chief of Staff told the FBI that he had a conversation discussing the Senate seat with Obama on December 7, 2008 in Obama’s car. President’s Chief of Staff told the FBI “Obama expressed concern about Senate Candidate D being appointed as Senator.

[President’s Chief of Staff] suggested they might need an expanded list to possibly include names of African Americans that came out of the business world. [President’s Chief of Staff] thought he suggested Senate Candidate E who was the head of the Urban League and with President’s Chief of Staff’s suggestion.

6. Obama had a secret phone call with Blagojevich

Redacted portion: President-elect Obama also spoke to Governor Blagojevich on December 1, 2008 in Philadelphia. On Harris Cell Phone Call # 139, John Harris and Governor’s legal counsel discuss a conversation Blagojevich had with President-elect Obama. The government claims a conspiracy existed from October 22, 2008 continuing through December 9, 2008.6 That conversation is relevant to the defense of the government’s theory of an ongoing conspiracy. Only Rod Blagojevich and President Obama can testify to the contents of that conversation. The defense is allowed to present evidence that corroborates the defendant’s testimony.

Can we smell any worse? Can we be more like Clinton then this? He comes from the "Windy City" and I got to tell y'all, This not only blows, but it sucks, and that sucking sound coming from just south of me has become a roar no one can ignore anymore.
