This article is interesting because it reveals several important aspects about Obama’s motivation and attitude.

1. Disrespect for soldiers and the military.
2. Obama pandering to the far left, his core support.
3. The hidden motivation. Obama had monetary ties to many with deep, suspicious ties to the Middle East. This will be explored futher in an upcoming article.

From Michelle Malkin ,  February 12, 2007.

“Obama: Soldier deaths = “Wasted” lives”

“Sen. Barack Obama’s nutroots are showing. RedStateLady has the video of Obama arguing that each and every member of the military who volunteered to serve and died in Iraq wasted his/her life:”

“Of course he thinks their lives were wasted. Everyone on the anti-war side does; that’s one of the reasons they want to end the war. But they can’t say that because it dishonors the dead so they’re forced into rhetorical pretzels like the one Pelosi tied herself into a few weeks ago with Diane Sawyer. Army Lawyer summed up her position at the time thusly: “They didn’t die for nothing, they died for something stupid.””

“I could go on, but it would be a waste of breath trying to get Sen. Obama to acknowledge the existence of countless soldiers and their families who reject his patronizing, infantilizing, and insulting view of all American troops as dupes/victims who have squandered their lives.”

We were all warned, long before I and others opened our eyes to the background and agenda of Barack Obama, the handwriting was on the wall.

From Michelle Malkin,  December 30, 2009.

“Yemen, Gitmo, and jihadi revolving doors”

“My column today spotlights Yemen’s dangerous catch-and-release program for terrorists — and ours. But before you read it, please inform yourselves of this sad passing: American sailor/U.S.S. Cole bombing survivor Johan Gokool died in Florida yesterday. He lost a leg in the attack and suffered severe PTSD. Gokool was 31. R.I.P. and never forget.”

“Bleeding hearts and jihadi revolving doors”

“Sen. Joe Lieberman was right to sound the alarm about Yemen in the wake of the Undy-Bomber’s Christmas Day terror attack over American skies. But he was wrong to call it “tomorrow’s war.” The Yemen-based jihadist network has been at war with us for years – since before the Iraq and Afghanistan invasions, since before 9/11, and well before our current commander-in-chief had begun his vaunted work as a community organizer.
The bleeding-heart ostriches of the Left are blaming (who else?) cowboy George W. Bush for radicalizing poor, oppressed Yemenis. But the killer fruits of botched bomber Abdul Farouk Abdulmutallab’s loom have nothing to do with poverty, social injustice, Western imperialism, or Bush Derangement Syndrome. The fundamentalist Muslim is the privileged son of a Nigerian public official. He lived a “gilded life,” as the Independent of London described it, studying engineering at one of Britain’s most prestigious universities before training for terror in Yemen.”

“America, unfortunately, is hardly in a position to criticize Yemen’s jihadi revolving door. ABC News reported this week that two of the four jihadi leaders behind the Christmas Day terror plot were released from Gitmo during the Bush administration in November 2007. (What a quandary for Bush-bashers who have stubbornly denied that Gitmo recidivism threatens our national security.) The freed detainees were shipped off to terror-friendly Saudi Arabia, where they underwent “art therapy rehabilitation” – the ultimate bloody brainchild of the jihadi-as-victim mindset.”

“Hundreds of Yemeni detainees at Gitmo abandoned the benefit of the doubt years ago. Yet, Attorney General Eric Holder’s law firm, Covington and Burling, has provided dozens of them pro bono legal representation and sob-story media relations campaigns. True to form, former Covington and Burling lawyer Mark Falkoff dedicated a book of Gitmo detainee poetry to his Yemeni suspected terrorist “friends inside the wire.” And the White House is rolling out the red carpet to bring them to U.S. soil for civilian trials.
At a time when we should be disabling the jihadi revolving door, its rotating shaft is spinning out of control.”

  1. Glenn Beck mentioned “Treason” on his show a week or so back. I am of the opinion that he committed treason a long time ago but the more recent actions of this man are in fact treasonous acts.

  2. I didn’t know Holder represented Gitmo detainee’s. Does anyone know how many and or who these detainee’s were? Where they went? Were the two handlers of the jihadist loom two of them? If so, then this is extremely and extraordinary information that would put a knife in 0’s farcical administration.

  8. At a time of great peril for our nation WW2, the United States was fortunate to have great Generals, who led against a vicious enemy bent on world domination. Many of the Generals at that time were no longer young, but had experiences which they acquired while fighting in WW1. These Generals were backed-up by the American people and a war-time president who did not offer aid and comfort to the enemy-in any way shape of form.

    The people view the aircraft as every member on board as their family members and friends. Many of our servicemen/women fly commercially.
    The terrorists view the aircraft as a means of taking down the aircraft and killing as many people on the ground as they possibly can.
    The Obama administration never had a clue re: terrorism and so beyond stupid they cannot learn. One of these days a terrorist is going to penetrate Air Force One with his welcome aboard policy, then what?

    NEW YORK (AP) – A white van parked in the heart of Times Square with tinted windows, no license plates and a bogus law enforcement placard led the NYPD to briefly evacuate the tourist hot spot and send in a bomb squad on the day before New Year’s Eve.

    No explosive devices were found inside the van Wednesday afternoon, and the area was reopened to traffic about two hours after the incident began.

  25.

    Many speakers and writers today are VERY, VERY OUTSPOKEN and VERY, VERY DAILY BOLDLY CRYING OUT about the immoral collapse of every nation’s society sins, and the horrible sins against GOD in the USA society and USA government.

    Alex Jones, Geert Wilder, Brigette Gabriel, John Charlton, Pamela Geller, Naomi Wolf, and many hundreds of other people have been outspoken for years about the terrible collapse of societies in the nations of the world that are collapsing in moral degradation and sins daily against GOD, and that continue to go down the highway of insane rampant & extreme sins of every kind against GOD ALMIGHTY; because many people are ignorant about GOD and the Holy Bible – The Forever Living Words Of GOD on earth.

    Some people on earth are ignoring GOD on earth. Some people on earth have learned about GOD but are simply defying and refusing to obey GOD on earth, and they have turned their backs, lives, and consciences away from GOD on earth and have decided to be living on earth in open WAR AGAINST GOD, humans, wisdom, truth, humility, virtues, love, and life itself on earth.

    “The Joint Chiefs of Staff should be worried…”

    Author: John Charlton
    Copyright 2009/2010


    Legal Analysis by John Charlton

    President Barack Hussein Obama is briefed on Afghanistan by the Joint Chiefs of Staff, in the Situation Room at the White House, on Oct. 30, 2009. (Official White House Photo by Pete Souza).

    (Dec. 12, 2009) — The Joint Chiefs of Staff should be worried of the dire punishment they will face, when they are one day convicted of treason against the United States of America for siding with the enemy and giving him aide and comfort.

    The Uniform Code of Military Justice is quite specific that in such a case even the Joint Chiefs can be punished with death, on order of a military tribunal.

    The Uniform Codes of Military Justice, on the crime of treason says under Article 906 — Espionage, section c:

    A sentence of death may be adjudged by a court-martial for an offense under this section (article) only if the members unanimously find, beyond a reasonable doubt, one or more of the following aggravating factors:

    (1) The accused has been convicted of another offense involving espionage or treason for which either a sentence of death or imprisonment for life was authorized by statute.

    (2) In the commission of the offense, the accused knowingly created a grave risk of substantial damage to the national security.

    (3) In the commission of the offense, the accused knowingly created a grave risk of death to another person.

    (4) Any other factor that may be prescribed by the President by regulations under section 836 of this title (Article 36).

    Under section b, the same article specifies when the sentence of death may be imposed:

    (1) No person may be sentenced by court-martial to suffer death for an offense under this section (article) unless–

    (A) the members of the court-martial unanimously find at least one of the aggravating factors set out in subsection (c); and

    (B) the members unanimously determine that any extenuating or mitigating circumstances are substantially outweighed by any aggravating circumstances, including the aggravating factors set out under subsection (c).

    (2) Findings under this subsection may be based on–

    (A) evidence introduced on the issue of guilt or innocence;

    (B) evidence introduced during the sentencing proceeding; or

    (C) all such evidence.

    (3) The accused shall be given broad latitude to present matters in extenuation and mitigation.

    Let’s examine whether the Joint Chiefs have committed a court-marshall offense worthy of death.

    They have supported a man who is clearly a usurper, as if he were the President of the United States
    This fact is manifest and notorious. There is one thing certain about Obama, and the Joint Chiefs know it: his father was a British subject.

    Four Supreme Court Cases declare that to be a natural born citizen, both parents must be U.S. Citizens. The Constitution clearly states in Article II, section ii, paragraph 5, that “No person except a natural born Citizen . . . shall be eligible to the Office of President.”

    The Joint Chiefs have been duly informed by many letters from military personnel, and from lawyers, such as Dr. Orly Taitz. The Joint Chiefs have the opportunity and aide of the best legal counsel.

    The Joint Chiefs therefore have knowingly sided with a usurper to the Presidency, and given him obedience as if he were the President of the United States.

    In doing so they have violated their oaths to uphold the U.S. Constitution, and committed treason.

    A Usurper of the office of the Presidency is the greatest enemy of the Republic.

    Emmerich de Vattel, the renowed political philosopher, whose treatise, The Law of Nations, was the guiding legal authority of our Founding Fathers, when crafting the Constitution, described in succint and poignent words, the importance of the Constitution of any Republic, in Book I, chapter 30 of his work:

    To attack the constitution of the state and to violate its laws, is a capital crime against society; and if those guilty of it are invested with authority, they add to this crime a perfidious abuse of the power with which they are instrusted. The nation ought constantly repress them with its utmost vigor and vigilance, as the importance of the case requires.

    A “capital crime” is one meriting the punishment of a public execution. A “perfidious abuse” is a treacherous misuse. Therefore de Vattel is clearly saying that the intentional, knowing violation of the Constitution is a crime worthy of death, a crime of treason.

    The importance of loyalty of the Joint Chiefs is the greatest of all outside the government, because without the U.S. Military, the People have no one to uphold the Constitution when that government might fail.

    And it has failed. And yet the Joint Chiefs have aided and abetted that failure, but obeying a dictator, a usurper, a Marxist who is step by step transforming the United States into a second Soviet Union.

    There is no greater betrayal of the Constitution than to usurp the highest office of the land, the office in which the Constitution ought to be personified and protected with the greatest personal convinction and loyalty. There is no greater crime of collaboration in such a crime that the complacency and adhesion of the Joint Chiefs to such a criminal.

    The Joint Chiefs have sided with the Enemy.

    This is a public fact, and a notorious one. The Joint Chiefs have on numerous occasions publicly stated that they fully back Barack Obama. They have filled their otherwise normal duties, yet given allegience to a usurper, the worst enemy of the State.

    The Joint Chiefs have given aide and comfort to the Enemy.

    The Joint Chiefs have given aide and comfort to the Enemy by publicly supporting his decisions, persecuting military personnel who have objected to Obama’s unproven eligiblity status (cf. case of Major Stephen Cook), and threatened subordinates with dire consequences if they seek to challenge him (cf. case of Connie Rhodes not being allowed to attend a court hearing).

    The Joint Chiefs have sent men to death, at the word of the Enemy.

    Great would be the public outcry if Al-Qaeda ordered the execution of U.S. Military personnel and the Joint Chiefs in league with that enemy, carried through the sentence of death against their own.

    But although they have not committed this crime, they have committed a greater one: because they have sent men to their death at the word of Barack Hussein Obama, who has unlawfully entered into the power and authority of the Presidency, and who according to the Constitution has no more authority to command U.S. armed forces, that Osama bin Laden.

    But being that Obama is a usurper, the Joint Chiefs have sent men to death for a mere man, and at the word of a criminal. This is even more disgraceful, since the Joint Chiefs have the duty to forego politics and ought to be men of a finer character than the Machiavellian Liar in the White House.

    The Joint Chiefs have knowingly undermined NATIONAL SECURITY in a grave manner.

    The Joint Chiefs by giving obedience to the enemy of the Republic have knowingly undermined NATIONAL SECURITY in the gravest of manners; because NATIONAL SECURITY requires first-and-foremost that the U.S. Constitution be upheld, and if you defend all the borders against terrorists, but allow the government to fall into the hands of a dictator, you have injured in the most grave manner the national security, even if in your puritanical vainglory, you take pride in the former and ignore your guilt in the latter.

    The Joint Chiefs have trangressed every pre-requisite for court-martial and a death sentence.

    The Uniform Code of Military Justice, as cited above, requires one of 3 conditions to be met, to obtain a death-sentance in a court-martial (Article 906, section c):

    (1) The accused has been convicted of another offense involving espionage or treason for which either a sentence of death or imprisonment for life was authorized by statute.

    (2) In the commission of the offense, the accused knowingly created a grave risk of substantial damage to the national security.

    (3) In the commission of the offense, the accused knowingly created a grave risk of death to another person.

    (4) Any other factor that may be prescribed by the President by regulations under section 836 of this title (Article 36).

    First: The U.S. Constitution specifies that TREASON shall consist in siding with the enemy and giving him aide and confort. This the Joint Chiefs have undeniably done. Therefore, they are guilty of TREASON, which according to the Uniform Code of Military Justice is punishable by death.

    Second: They have knowingly created a grave risk of substantial damage to the national security.

    Third: In the commission of this offense they have not only created a grave risk of death, but have sent men to their deaths, to uphold the pretense of their own self-righteousness.

    Therefore they more than qualify for COURT-MARTIAL and a DEATH-SENTENCE, imposed by a military tribunal.

    And when the American people finally rise up and overthrow the usurper and his cohorts, loyal and true members of the U.S. Military will hail them from the holes into which they have fled, and bring them before a military tribunal on charges of TREASON.

    And for that reason, the Joint Chiefs of Staff should be worried…

    P.S. USURPER Barack Hussein Obama II/Barry Soetoro is A 100% FACTUAL ILLEGAL ALIEN, and 100% NOT A LEGAL USA Citizen today, as Barck Obama is DELIBERATELY DESTROYING THE USA at whip-lash speed as fast as he possibly can, under the orders of the New World Orders Insane Elites.

    Usurper Barack Obama is being aided and abetted with many people, such as the Chief Joints Of Staff who DO NOT know about the despicable background of Barack Hussein Obama, and the New World Order – One World Government Illuninati World Bankers, who are Serial Arrogant and Prideful Criminals and Extremely Dangerous Sinners against GOD who seek TOTAL and COMPLETE TYRANNICAL POWER & CONTROL over humans, including the power the destinies of the life and the torture and mass murders death over people and animals; the accummulations of ALL materialistic goods and ALL wealth of ALL nations on earth.

  26. Sorry for my typos in my last comment. It was making me so heart sick to type the truth and the facts. I sometimes don’t even want to bother to fix my typos, so heart sick I am these days about knowing what is going on the world, and that SO FEW people are listening to TRUTH & WISDOM about Obama, etc.

  27. That is why they are dug in so deep and they fight the revelation of the usurpation…all of them do, because they are all complicit and therefore guilty of treason…

  28. PD and Buraq 08 – thanks for the info. I went over and read MMs posts and although very disturbing, I’m still unable to ascertain whether it was Holder’s law firm who represented the two jihadist’s when at Gitmo. If it is and he was a part of that team, it adds an entirely new dimension to the Christmas Day Bomber and how he never made it on to the no fly list.

    venice – thanks for the clip w/K. Interesting that we learned in that clip that the father of this jihadist went to the American Embassy on three separate occasions to inform and to be interviewed yet nothing was ever done. I find that incredulous.

    Here’s a link to the Saudi Gazette who interviewed one of the handlers families http://www.saudigazette.com.sa/index.cfm?method=home.regcon&contentID=2009090448796

  29. Well, what do you know…both jihadist handlers of the Christmas Day Bomber apparently fled to Yemen in January 2009 where they merged the Saudi AQ with the Yemen AQ. Both were arrested in January but apparently released soon thereafter.


  30. Off Topic: I am so happy for David Goldman to have his son back from Brazil, finally. They have some rough times ahead & bonding to do, but I pray for the best. He lives near us & works on a charter boat here that my husband has fished on. Here is an article about it from our local paper today, if anyone is interested:


  31. TADAH!!!


    Throughout the 2008 campaign, al-Qaeda issued periodic calls for volunteers from Saudi Arabia to move south and join forces under al-Wahayshi’s leadership. It is difficult to say how many fighters from Saudi Arabia and surrounding countries subsequently traveled to Yemen, but by the end of 2008 the articles in Sada al-Malahim made clear that the group had received an influx of new talent. The religious scholarship in the journal was of a much higher intellectual caliber than earlier attempts and, in the November issue, al-Qaeda invited its readers to submit questions to which its “Sharia Committee” would respond with religious opinions. More recently, in the March 2009 issue, al-Qaeda revealed that yet another former Guantánamo detainee, Ibrahim al-Rubaysh, who was transferred to Saudi Arabia in December 2006, had rejoined its ranks.

    The precedent of released and supposedly rehabilitated Guantánamo detainees returning to fight for al-Qaeda is a worrying one for U.S. officials. Of particular concern is the fact that many current members of al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula have brothers in Guantánamo. Qasim al-Raymi, a military commander for the organization, has a younger brother, Ali, there. Fawaz al-Rabi‘i’s younger brother in Guantánamo may be looking to avenge his brother’s death. Another Yemeni, Mansur al-Bayhani, who was killed in Somalia by a U.S. warship in June 2007, has two brothers in Guantánamo. Lawyers for the detainees claim it is unfair and illegal to continue to hold them because of the acts of their relatives. But as al-Hazam told al-Arabiya TV, jihad is often a family business. To ignore historical patterns of radicalization and recruitment is to disregard years of difficult lessons. Indeed, al-Awfi initially went off to fight because he wanted to join an older brother (who was later killed in Afghanistan).

    Al-Qaeda’s growing confidence and ambition in Yemen is clear. The Yemeni government’s ability to manage the numerous security threats it is facing is becoming increasingly limited as its power continues to recede. This slippage of governance will open up more spaces for jihadi groups to operate in Yemen. Combine these factors with an influx of new recruits and the potential for disaster is sharply increasing. While U.S. policy is now justifiably focused on Afghanistan and Pakistan, it would be a grave mistake to ignore what is going on in Yemen, and to think our Saudi friends can do much about it on our behalf.”


  32. From Andrea Shea King:


    Tonight at 9 pm ET — Steve Schippert of Threats Watch, the national security watchdog who broke the story about the Executive Order Obama signed while you celebrated Christmas: The EO that gives Interpol complete immunity and sovereignty over our Constitution.


    Tonight on my radio program — the story that’s picking up steam in the blogging community and will probably take a week’s worth of news cycles before you see, hear, or read about it on TV or Radio, is the one fellow blogger and sharp eyed national security specialist Steve Schippert broke and has been picked up by the major bloggers like Michelle Malkin:

    Last week, Steve Schippert at ThreatsWatch first raised questions about a White House executive order that appears to give Interpol immunity from American law.
    See Steve’s full analysis here.
    Andy McCarthy weighed in here with more questions:
    Over at Threats Watch, Steve’s most recent post:
    America’s Top Three Threat Developments
    Since kicking up much dust regarding President Obama’s quiet empowerment of InterPol on US soil, I’ve been intellectually disengaged for the most part in my annual ‘decompression week’ over the Christmas holiday. A necessary retreat. But it’s time to re-engage.
    There are three pressing situations that require attention, analysis and awareness.
    1. The internal Iranian developments are fast and furious, yet largely under-reported still. Is the regime at a crucial tipping point? Has the regime actually made an aircraft ready to whisk Supreme Leader Grand Ayatollah Khamenei away to safety? Are there quiet and secret splits in the ranks of its military and security forces, including the Revolutionary Guards Corps and the Bassij?
    2. What is to be made of al-Qaeda’s latest attempt to bring down an airliner descending into Detroit? What’s to be made of our own systems, organizational awareness and domestic security?
    3. The question of why Interpol was granted full diplomatic immunity and its archives and records “inviolable” has yet to be addressed by the White House. It has been two weeks since the amending of Executive Order 12425. (See: PrincipalAnalysis: Wither Sovereignty.)
    Overview, tracking and analysis soon forthcoming at ThreatsWatch.
    Join us tonight at 9 ET — Do NOT miss it.



    I just heard from another friend and frequent guest on our radio program. Richard S. Lowry, military historian and author of three books about the wars in the Mideast, is now working on his 4th book — New Dawn, The Battles for Fallujah. Particularly relevant are the opening passages, related to the three Navy SEALs who’ve been brought up on charges of injuring the Jihadist who perpetrated the crime on the four Blackwater security contractors:

    “New Dawn opens with the brutal murder, bludgeoning and burning of four Blackwater security contractors, followed by the aborted first assault and tense standoff during the spring and summer of 2004. Then, New Dawn tells the complete story of the massive final attack as seen through the eyes of those who were there.”

    He’s also writing for the online examiner.com and has a new article up — an excerpt from New Dawn. It’s a profile of Brigadier General Larry Nicholson, battle hardened veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom and probably one of the most experienced field commanders in the United States Marine Corps.

  33. And now, nearly five days after the near massacre of Flight 253, we learn that Haskell, the attorney from MI, was correct. There was a second arrest made. Indeed, more eyewitnesses have come out publicly stating the same facts as Haskell did in his original report.

    Why does our government lie to us? Why?


  34. Thanks CW. I’ll attempt to stay awake to listen to the radio program. This move by obama needs investigating. What is really going on & will the media cover it? And if they do, will it be such a little blurb it will largely go unnoticed?

    Do you ever sleep with all there is to cover?

  35. d2i: I have believed that report of a 2nd arrest from the beginning. Very suspicious.

  36. ND – me too. It’s refreshing to see other eyewitnesses, original sources, independently verifying Mr. Haskell’s account. I hope more speak up.

    An article posted on Drudge yesterday interviewed another passenger – a woman who was returning with her family and two adopted children from Etheopia stating a gentleman who sat in front of her taped the entire flight and the FBI was looking for him.

    As this drama continues to unfold I’m beginning to think the jihadist may have been set up, that is, he may have believed he was on a suicide mission but was really used as a pawn to learn the movements of the plane, crew and passengers so as to provide visual evidence to the handlers what to expect on future flights. Or he believed his hand held camera wouldn’t be burnt to smithereens if the bomb did explode.

    I’m not certain to what benefit such filming would be to anyone if the camera was destroyed. However, if this was indeed a dry run they now know patterns of the crew, vulnerabilities in the cabin and much more. This tape if never found will inform these jihadists so as to prepare for the real deal at some later date.

    And now with this second man…hhhhmmmmm. Not sure what to make of the FBI Agents comment regarding “read b/w the lines”

  37. my bad – Ethiopia not Etheopia…

  39. NancyDrew.
    Early in 2008, after I had spent several days researching Obama & his past, I would wake
    up in the middlle of the night worrying about what could happen to this nation.
    After a while I learned to adapt, not complain too much & just do my job.
    It is a job we must do.
    Just do it.

  40. Happy New Years to CW and all who post here regularly.

    I very much appreciate this site, check it regularly and enjoy all the informative links people supply.

    Keep your powder dry for the battles in 2010.

    cheers from a fan down in lovely NZ… LisaGinNZ

  41. You decide

    Should Obama Officials Be Fired Over Failed Terror Plot?

    Do you think any administration officials should lose their jobs over airline security breach?


  42. Thanks Lisa to you and all the supportive Kiwis.

  43. I agree with you, Nancy Drew. The job is here and we are all just doing it. I, too, have spent many sleepless nights worrying about our nation. BO’s Dec. 16 Executive Order has me upset now. I wonder why no one is fighting that one. How can he give Interpol jurisdiction over Americans on American soil? I don’t get it.

    ∙$2.4 million for handicap access and a sprinkler system at a community club in New York


  45. The slogan for all politicians today –

    If you can fake sincerety you’ve got it made!!

  46. Instead of blaming the middle or people at the bottom, it is the nit-wit policies of the guy at the top-Obama, who had plenty of warnings before this incident. He didn’t learn from Ft. Hood yet and Obama and his merry band of incompetents still haven’t figured out this one. They have no idea how upset the American people are with their blatant stupidity. The Republicans should go on the attack as never before. Even the terrorists take him for the sap that he is.
    Agencies On Defensive in Aftermath of Failed Terror Attack
    FOXNews – Catherine Herridge – ‎51 minutes ago‎
    Intelligence and diplomatic officials have crouched into defense mode in the wake of the failed Christmas Day terror attack, as lawmakers start to point fingers and the administration bellows that the president demands “accountability.”

    Hi Michelle,

    Catching up….

    And I WILL vote for this man in a heartbeat!

    I do understand – I well remember Sept. 2008. I felt then that it was all deliberate & engineered.

  51. Sorry,those were CW’s words:

  52. **** New Post ****

  53. sandy @ 6:36 “I was busy looking for my birth certificate.” The one he wrote about in his book that he found by accident when he was a teen-ager. Lost it again….?

  54. SueK @6:46 I meant for President.

  55. just wondering

    I am catching up from a couple of posts back, and I think I received the same e-mail re. 13 Trillion that you were trying to track down. I do believe it was from Ron Paul and his audit the Fed group…Hope that helps.

  56. Criticizing Obama for the job he is doing with our Homeland security, as “President”, really infuriates me. He is not a legal President, what kind of a job do you expect from a fraud-usurper,Muslim felon? Do you really think he cares about America? He’s here to do damage and weaken Americas defenses, open our borders and allow a flood of immigrants to leverage the American people into a minority. Obama is a criminal usurper, perpetrating fraud on every American in this country! He obviously doesn’t care if infidels die, he’s serving the King of Saudi Arabia.
    He’s obviously a practicing Muslim, out of the closet, thanks to Benaiah’s photo link. Those shoes look expensive. Maybe now people will believe Obama is Muslim, and he lied to everyone when he said he was a Christian. I hate liars. The entire story about Obama is fake. Where is the outrage? This is the Presidency of the United States of America we are talking about! Obama should be arrested and charged with fraud.
    His biggest gift to us so far is the forgery he calls his birth certificate. If he is legitimate it will take Obama no time at all to prove it. Obtain a legitimate birth certificate out of Hawaii. Cut all the crap and prove you are who you say you are.
    The American people need to demand this. This fraud has gone on for over a year already, and it is high time the American people get an answer. Is Obama a legitimate President or not? I think we all know the answer to that Question.

    Why does our government lie to us? Why?

    Okay, here goes……….”You want the truth??? You can’t handle the truth!!”
