Obama flips finger at John Callahan, Callahan supported Hillary Clinton, Character revealed, Allentown PA, December 4, 2009, Mayor of Bethlehem PA, Hillary rally in Bethlehem, Obama no Christian

“Watch out for people who have a situational value system, who can turn the charm on and off depending on the status of the person they are interacting with….. be especially wary of those who are rude to people perceived to be in subordinate roles.”…Raytheon CEO Bill Swanson, “Unwritten Rules of Management“


Character Revealed


A video of Barack Obama’s speech in Allentown, PA December 4, 2009.

“President Obama scratches his head with his middle finger… intentionally?”

Youtube video provided by Chris Barrett

This is not the first time that Obama has been caught making this gesture. Remember the incident from the 2008 campaign.

From the Citizen Wells blog, August 18, 2008.

“Obama is documented as being the most liberal member of the senate. Obama claims to have no ties to lobbyists. Obama claims to be a Christian, but his words do not match his deeds.”
Obama words, Obama actions

So what could have prompted this lastest gesture?

“John M Callahan 

$250 to Hillary Clinton, Hillary Clinton For President on October 17, 2007 ”


From National Review Online, April 21, 2008

“Clinton finds her people in Pennsylvania.”

“Bethlehem, Pennsylvania — The next day, Sunday afternoon, Clinton is on the other side of the state in Bethlehem.  The name conjures up images of shuttered steel mills and rust-belt decay, but Bethlehem is a beautiful little city — just a couple of years ago, it was included in Money magazine’s list of the 100 best places to live in America.  (It was number 88.)  The city has a lovely, historic main street that is quite alive — check out the Moravian Book Shop and a zillion coffee shops — without empty store fronts.

Clinton’s rally is in the gymnasium at Liberty High School.  Her team is not exactly expecting a full house.  On the left side of the gym, as one faces the stage, there are 25 rows of seats, from floor to ceiling.  The Clinton team has put up a big blue curtain and an American flag blocking access beyond the first seven rows; all the seats above that remain empty.

But people pack into the room, after waiting hours to get through Secret Service security points.  The gym floor is jammed.

“As I look out on the crowd, I’m not sensing any bitterness,” Bethlehem mayor John Callahan tells the audience. “I’m not sensing any pessimism.”

He’s right. And while Clinton crowds don’t exactly go wild, this crowd is as loud and enthusiastic as they get. “Isn’t this exciting?” Clinton says when she takes the stage to huge applause.  “We’re getting to the decision day.””

“As far as voting for Obama is concerned, the views of people here are just about the same as those in the Mon Valley. More than half of those I ask say they won’t vote for him under any circumstances.  A few others say they’ll have to think hard about it. And a few say they’ll be (grudgingly) loyal Democrats.

A couple of hours later, people in Bethlehem get a surprise when Obama shows up, unannounced, on Main Street.  Word has gotten out a few minutes early, and excited people on the street are calling their friends and telling them to hurry down, that Obama will be there soon.  And sure enough, his bus pulls up, and Obama makes his way down the street, shaking hands and stopping briefly at Mama Nina’s Foccacheria, before heading to the Bethlehem Brew Works, a brew pub with a Steel City theme — the booths are made of bare piping and sheet steel — on the corner.  He sips a beer — a regular guy — talks to a few people, and takes off.”

    Please contact your child/grandchild’s school library and make sure these books are not on the “recommended” reading list.


    This is an OUTRAGE! What is wrong with these people? Kevin Jennings needs to GO!

  8. Oops! The second part of my new name got dropped somehow.

  9. The irony of all of this is that Google-Youtube

  10. O has also flipped off our Constitution……..

  11. Has anyone heard if the National Emergency in our country has been lifted? Some friends have left for Australia for Christmas with no problem..

  12. This view shows a woman’s reaction to Obama’s obcene gesture…….

  16. Unfortunately at this time the Obama thing that crawled out of the South Side of Chicago-slum landlord division is the face the world sees of the United States of America. Thank goodness he was not born here. He is also a very poor reflection of the people of Kenya-they are probably more mortified than we are.

  17. What on earth is happening???? CBS turns Frosty into a pervert:


  18. Everyone! You need to go to http://www.dearpolitician.org... I heard about it through a friend and the site is awesome! No site compares when writing your politicians…. The website automatically pulls my politicians according to my district; I just had to click on the ones I wanted to send my letter too. What is really cool! You can choose to send your letter to completed Senate and Congressional Committees. I wrote a letter to my Senators, Congressman, and a Senate committee. Here is the kicker though…You can choose to print them off and mail them yourself or THEY WILL FAX THEM FOR FREE TO EACH OF THEIR OFFICES! It is about time someone made writing the morons in office a lot easier. Yes, the site is FREE. Just passing along a good tip for a great site.

    That was totally disgusting. Have they lost their minds? these are small children that this is aimed at. One of my sisters solved this problem years ago. No TV in the house at all. It is impossible for parents to monitor everything. As far as funny if that was the intent, it was not.

  21. Michelle:

    No, not one bit funny at all! Just plain sick!

    Barack Obama is … British?

    Our founding Fathers must be rolling over in their graves! The very last thing they wanted was for the U.S. to be ruled by a Brit. That was one reason for the Natural born citizen clause.

  24. Yesterday I read some of this story about the reading list from Jennings. It literally made me nauseous.

    I don’t have children, but we all know people who do. It is disgusting beyond description. I suggest people print this article, show it to every parent with school age children, and every adult without children who pay taxes to ‘government’ schools. This is beyond outrageous.

  25. I want the good old days back. Anyone got a time machine?

  26. Katie-I hope someone sends that mess to John Walsh, he has been working so hard against those crazy NAMBLA people.

    I envision a sinking ship named ACORN and Barrack Obama and his administration as the passengers. Torpedoes and missiles named Bachman, King, Giles, O’Keefe, Breitbart and Beck are surrounding the ship.

  28. Interesting article about Alice Palmer, obama’s first political boss. She had ties to Moscow. Wonder if she could be the one Tom Fife wrote about meeting?

  29. Or, I guess I should say related somehow to the people Tom Fife met in Moscow.

  30. this is a great blog

  31. Yo: I agree, it is a great blog. That’s why we live here. LOL

  32. NancyDrew,

    Yes, this place is home to many of us.

  33. Thanks for the compliments.
    The greatness of this blog is directly proportional to the input from and participation by
    great commenters/researchers/citizen journalists.

    Consider this an open letter to all Sarah Palin supporters.
    We hope our friends at http://www.Conservatives4Palin, TeamSarah, and other hubs of information in the Palinverse pick up on this too and mobilize all their readers to join Governor Palin in calling for a boycott of the sham Copenhagen summit, the release of all climate data by NASA and Penn State, and an immediate and comprehensive Special Prosecutor-led investigation into the taxpayer-funded Anthropologic Global Warming Hoax scandal.
    There has never been a more critical juncture in our lifetimes, people. We have already been told by many Democrats in Chicago to back away from this story because the MSM and many in the party here will work to destroy anyone trying to investigate behind the curtain on this. It is explosive enough to bring the DNC down, along with the MSM, most of Congress, and could ultimately land Al Gore in federal prison. The people behind the Climategate scandal are powerful and very well funded. Who knows where the ultimate money behind all of this comes from — it could be George Soros, it could be the Saudis, it could be villains we’ve never even heard of.
    It is the single biggest global fraud ever committed…and fifteen days later, the MSM has still not said word one about it.
    The MSM has everything vested in Anthropogenic Global Warming. They have spent 10 years cramming this garbage down the public’s throat. All of their credibility depends on this…the MSM will work night and day to keep Climategate off the national radar.
    It is our duty as Americans to make sure the MSM fails.
    Here is what Governor Palin had to say today. Consider it, as we do, a call to action and marching orders to get everyone in your home towns up in arms about this.
    It is the single greatest hoax in human history — an enormous Ponzi scam that must be exposed and toppled with its perpetrators sent to prison

  36. NancyDrew.
    The depth of my (and I am sure your) participation in this blog is directly proportional
    to my concern for this country.

  39. As a former Chicagoan this part makes me very suspicious on top of the Blago computer break-in??? Who? What are the threats, the intimations? what records are going to hacked, destroyed, stolen etc. next? More something rotten in the state of Chicago/Denmark.

    Climagate in 7 words “load of hot air underpinned by fraud.”
    Update 9:21 p.m. ET: Sen. Barbara Boxer, a California Democrat, says ClimateGate hackers should face criminal penalties. (Then again, if we’re talking about an anonymous whistleblower, there’s no hacking involved.) Ian Plimer, a professor who teaches earth science at Australia’s University of Adelaide, has reiterated his criticism of the climate change lobby in no uncertain terms, calling it a “load of hot air underpinned by fraud.”

    Obama will bankrupt America
    by Terence P. Jeffrey

    When President Obama entered office in January, the greatest problem America faced was neither the war in Afghanistan nor the recession. It was the imminent crisis of the welfare state.


  44. I really think the below commenter has a point….I have been saying this all along…..the man who is illegal in our house needs to go before any of us give this corrupt government a single penny…..found at….


    # Follow the Constitution Says:
    December 4th, 2009 at 11:34 pm

    The easiest way to end this fraud is for the people to just STOP! STOP participating in anything that becomes law that is signed by Obama! It is that simple!

    Everyone needs to withhold all tax monies! Refuse to do anything signed into law by Obama! These laws are NOT binding on anyone because they were not signed into law by a valid President!

    What are they going to do? Arrest and prosecute everyone? And if they dare try to prosecute anyone for refusing to acknowledge illegal laws signed into law by Obama, how can they prevent them from gaining standing to force the prosecution to PROVE Obama is eligible???

    In order to find against anyone for refusing to take any part in their illegal laws, they have to show PROOF that Obama is eligible! Are the courts going to deny everyone justice and their rights to a fair trial by just ignoring whether Obama is eligible by refusing any proof to be given to prove we the people are wrong?

    I think a certain date should be set. Then everyone write into Congress telling them that have until such and such date to resolve this eligibilty issue with Obama and if they refuse, we are no longer going to honor anything they pass into law since Obama took office until this issue is resolved!

    Until they provide the facts and proof to show Obama is eligible everything they do is illegal and we refuse to take part in their crimes! Therefore we the people will no longer be held accountable for their treasonous illegal laws signed into law by Obama!


  45. Get out of our house! Please check out this site if you have not already done so.


    This concept will hold politicans accountable as well as clean house.

  46. Greetings all, Just want to comment on something I am discerning. Each morning when I wake I hit the floor and pray. I am a praying woman and have been for many years. What I see is that O’s WH has NO Joy. Joy is a fruit of the spirit, and the current administration is Joyless. Totally and completely Joyless none nada. So they are weak…Nehemiah 8:10 The Joy of the Lord is our strength……..This is a minor prophet making a major statement…..We the people must retain our Joy, this is not dependent on circumstances. Just look at O not getting the Olympics in Chicago, and Climategate being exposed right in the nick of time…I can’t wait to see what God is up to next! Full court press folks! Be encouraged! JOY=STRENGTH God bless you all!! BTW, I pray for many of you guys at this site, Twe and her Mom, SueK and her condition(God has his hand on you) Maddie and wisdom to deal with her folks, LindaNY and her priest friend that prays daily for our military……

  47. @Jacqlyn Smith At 11:41 am,
    Thank you so much for that link. I was wondering about that, and friends on a few of the blogs were asking me about it. I wish i could go!!!!

  48. Jacqlyn @11:48 This is the naked truth!! Am going into 4 wks. of not paying taxes on our business and have employees maxed on dependents…My precious husband says he hopes we don’t go to jail, I’ve told him if we do there will probably be people in there we know…

  49. carmen // December 5, 2009 at 12:02 pm

    Good Aftanoon, Carmen, and thank you!

    God bless!

  50. Twe,

    Just got some sort of ‘mental jolt’ (it’s not the MS).

    Please check in.

  51. Thank you Carmen. You are so right. It is getting very interesting these past 2 weeks. I’m still very disappointed in Carter though I’m not surprised in the least. He forgets that he’ll have to answer to God one day.
    God Bless You Carmen!!

  52. Sad part about Obama is that he is giving our military the same hand gesture. He is also giving it to you and me.
    Apparently our entire government is handcuffed by the Chicago mobsters, Nation of Islam, Acorn and fools.

  53. Thanks for keeping me informed everyone. Although it is quite depressing. Sooner or later many people will snap, and there will be trouble.

    Hi PD,

    I always own on federal, but get somewhere around 6 bucks back from state each year.

    I will file come April 15, but will not enclose a check rather, the IRS will get a note: ” I know I owe you, so I’m sending you the same thing Tim Geithner sent you for his taxes. Since he’s the Treasury Secretary, I figure he knows what he’s doing.”

    I’ll wait for the Feds with my bags and pets packed…

  60. I don’t have to worry about paying taxes. We did so poorly last year with out business (making personal loans from our savings to keep it going) we got a refund last year. I suspect we will this year, too. Not good news. Hopefully when I get my insurance audits, there will be a refund, as well.

  61. Blagojevich evidence stolen from his lawyers’ offices

    Chicago police were investigating a burglary at the offices of attorneys for former Gov. Rod Blagojevich in which at least one computer containing undercover recordings from the sweeping corruption case was stolen, sources said.

    The break-in took place about 4 a.m. at the law offices of Sam Adam and his son, Sam Adam Jr., in the 6100 block of South Ellis Avenue, police and Sam Adam Jr. said.

    Contrary to early statements by a police News Affairs officer who referred calls regarding the burglary to the FBI, the FBI is not involved in the investigation, FBI Chicago office spokesman Ross Rice said in a statement.

    The burglars set off an alarm but escaped the area. Investigative sources said there are no suspects.

    Chicago police said eight computers and a safe were taken from the office, but they could not say what information the computers contained.

    “It could be a happenstance burglary. All leads will be followed,” said Chicago Police Deputy Supt. Steve Peterson.

    The U.S. attorney’s office in Chicago declined to comment on the incident or the theft of evidence in the case.

    It is unclear if the burglary could delay Blagojevich’s trial scheduled for June.

    The younger Adam confirmed the burglary this afternoon but said everything that was taken is backed up on other computers in his offices.

    “We did have some computers stolen, and we will not speculate on any motivation that might be behind it,” Adam said. “We’re trying to determine now what they did and did not take.”

    Adam said his team is hopeful that the burglary won’t delay the case.

    “We are already back to work,” Adam said. “We’re not going to let this slow us down and slow down the truth (from) coming out – that the governor did nothing wrong.”

    Adam said his office is not equipped with video surveillance. Investigators have said they had not yet determined whether the burglars knew what the computers contained or simply took them to make a quick buck.


  62. CW,

    I haven’t blogged here in a long time, but I visit often. In an article I wrote, I referenced your information about Huffington Post, and I added an additional twist to think about. Please visit when you have time.

    “What’s Money Got to Do With It?

    Everyone here does a great job of keeping the information

  63. Well, I’m very nervous. We have been looking at some other kind of business to get into before we are broke. I’ve been asking God to guide us on this one. We made an offer on a deli/sub shop that is not being run properly & they just accepted. I pray we are doing the right thing in this economy. Looks like this old girl will be putting her nose to the grindstone soon.

  64. NancyDrew.
    Best wishes.
    People must always have food & shelter.
    Build a better mouse trap & people will beat a path to your door.

    You’ll be great and your new business will be a success. It will….you’ll see.

  69. NancyDrew, may your business be a success and your customers hungry.

    Best of luck and Merry Christmas!

  70. Just received this email …..

    There will be no Nativity Scene in Washington this year!

    The Supreme Court has ruled that there cannot be a Nativity Scene in the United States ‘ Capital this Christmas season.

    This isn’t for any religious reason. They simply have not been able to find Three Wise Men in the Nation’s Capital.

    A search for a Virgin continues.

    There was no problem, however, finding enough asses to fill the stable.

  71. Val, Thank you. I was worried that they might find 3 wise men and I would have been mistaken. I didn’t believe that they could find one. It’s just a good thing they didn’t have to look for one honest man.

  72. **** New Post ****


  73. Don,


  74. Val, lol!

    And Barky said he was born in a manger, he could do that ‘one’ part in the Nativity Scene for the huffy posters and the Ofa Party , but for some god-forsaken reason, he’s going on another world campaign.

    Besides, China has all the gold, frankincense, and myrrh anyway! lol
