“As soon as all the corrections which happened to be necessary in any particular number of the Times had been assembled and collated, that number would be reprinted, the original copy destroyed, and the corrected copy placed on the files in it’s stead. This process of continuation alteration was applied not only to newspapers, but to books, periodicals, pamphlets, posters, leaflets, films, sound tracks, cartoons, photographs–to every kind of literature or documentation which might conceivably hold any political or ideological significance. Day by day and almost minute by minute the past was brought up to date. In this way every prediction made by the Party could be shown by documentary evidence to be correct; nor was any item of news, or expression of opinion, which conflicted with the needs of the moment, ever allowed to be on record.”…George Orwell, “1984″

“The function of the press is very high. It is almost Holy.
It ought to serve as a forum for the people, through which
the people may know freely what is going on. To misstate or
suppress the news is a breach of trust.”…. Louis D. Brandeis

“And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed
–if all records told the same tale–then the lie passed into
history and became truth. “Who controls the past,” ran the
Party slogan, “controls the future: who controls the present
controls the past.”…George Orwell, “1984″

Is There An Imposter In The White House? An Excerpt from “Hope Is Not A Strategy”

John MariottiJohn Mariotti, Contributor
Cover of "The Manchurian Candidate"Cover of The Manchurian Candidate

There is something very wrong when the sitting president refuses to divulge huge pieces of information about his background. What is he hiding? Maybe the “birthers” were a little extreme, but is there something wrong with this “manufactured candidate,” whose history remains sealed from public view? What is he hiding?

Could the “Hawaii birth certificate” be a forgery? Is there something much worse—like “sponsorship” by an unnamed special interest? I don’t know. I do know that the man in the White House now is an imposter. The only question is which kind of an imposter: an incompetent “pretender” or a genuine phony, a “Manchurian candidate,” who is a liberal, ½ black and ½ white, and an obvious Muslim sympathizer (despite claims of being a Christian—in clear conflict with his non-Christian behavior).

Will this campaign expose him as the imposter, and the pretender his behavior has revealed? Will it expose his hidden history and murky background. We know about his failures and mistakes.

For those who don’t, here is another in this series of revealing excerpts fromHOPE IS NOT A STRATEGY: Leadership Lessons from the Obama Presidency. The book is now available on in paperback and Kindle versions. Other in e-book versions are available

Excerpt from the chapter: Beware the Pretender:
…”No matter how many times President Obama refers to the “problems he inherited,” he has now been in office three years. Certainly many of the current problems can be traced back to events that happened during the eight years that Bush held the top office, and some can be traced back to even earlier presidencies—but far from all of them.
Many of the problems are newly created (or made worse), and Barack Obama owns them. Candidate Obama stepped up and essentially said, “I want the job, and everything that comes with it” by running for president. After three years in office, the problems now belong to him and his presidency. He caused them, made them worse, or didn’t solve them. Either way, they are his now.
…In leadership, you cannot “pretend” to be a leader. You either are—or you aren’t—a leader. One or the other will become apparent very quickly.
If you want the leadership job, you must step up and take full ownership of it. A “pretender” or “poser” is like an actor who has learned all the right lines, but has no idea what they mean. Once the script has been followed (or deviated from), the actor is clueless about what to do next. This is the job of the leader. Unfortunately, in this government, the “directors” often seem clueless, having learned in academia where results and wins/losses are theoretical, or in politics where success (at getting elected) is more a matter of rhetoric than results.
If you are not ready for a position, or do not believe that you have what it takes to rise to the challenge (or clean up the mess even if you believe it is not your mess), then do not take the job. This was Barack Obama’s fundamental mistake. He grossly underestimated the difficulty of the position he was running for, and overestimated his preparedness to actually do the job. Just because he could “talk a good game” (thanks to a phalanx of speech writers and the omnipresent teleprompters) does not mean he actually knew what to do or how to do it. The presidency of the United States of America is not a place for heavy OJT (On-the Job-Training)….”

After the first three plus years of the presidency, it is painfully clear that Barack Obama was a “pretty face,” and “glib speaker” and a lightweight liberal politician with a community organizer/radical background. The American people should be outraged at this man’s behavior and even his candidacy. Why are they not? Because of the misinformation delivered by sympathetic liberal/mainstream media who loves his nonsensical form of governing.

…”Obama’s perceived preparedness for the presidency is a terrible delusion, from which it is difficult to escape. Mistakes build upon each other and result in even more complex problems. Difficult problems that are mishandled become even more difficult to fix. When you have too little experience, lack substance (other than the words of your latest speech), then leading, managing and problem solving simply don’t happen. And that is what has occurred. When you compound the problem by surrounding your self with like-minded theorists, lacking in real-world experience, things become worse yet. The theoretical solutions to problems often don’t work due to the messiness of the real world—and the reasons are almost unfathomable to these rookie executive/politicians. …”

What should Americans think about this “imposter?” Will he divulge his true background so we can all see who he is and where he came from—really? If not, is this just a man who should never have been sworn into the office of President in the first place, and who has crippled Americans miserably during his term?

Will we continue to believe his misstatements (the politically correct term for lies)? Can he simply use the media to “erase and forget the past three years of misery and missteps?” Or will we learn from his imperialistic behavior and terrible results and throw him out in November?

That is what why we wrote HOPE IS NOT A STRATEGY: Leadership Lessons from the Obama Presidency. To learn more go and sign up—and go to buy the book—and see for yourself! There are thirty chapters that reveal what was behind Barack Obama’s mistakes, failures and lack of leadership.

  1. Whistleblower

    On the subject of the “media”

    Sun Times Watchdogs pounce on an eight year old story: Sic’ em dogs!

  2. White ribbons in America. Will Russians march in solidarity with us?

    By Dr. Orly Taitz
    White ribbons in America. Will Russians march in solidarity with us?.

    In the US we’ve watched protests in Russia, claims of elections fraud and white ribbons of solidarity with dissidents.

    But what about the United States of America? The irony is that we, all 311 million Americans are victims of the biggest fraud in the history of this nation. Specifically, this is the fraud committed by one, Barack Hussein Obama. Unfortunately, the level of corruption among our governmental bureaucrats and judges and heavily censored and manipulated puppet US “main stream” (or truly backwater) media is enormous. Even with the undeniable evidence of fraud committed by Obama, we are yet to get a court ruling removing him from the ballot and prosecuting him to the full extent of the law for elections fraud, use of a computer generated forgery, claiming it to be a true and correct copy of his valid birth certificate, use of a stolen Social Security number and hiding his identity under the last name Soetoro and Soebarkah.

    Well, I better start from the beginning. As Obama started running for the US Presidency, I could tell that much of what he was saying did not ring true and did not check out.

    Probably the most troubling was the fact that he is using a Social Security number assigned to another individual.

    In the United States the Social Security numbers were assigned by the states. The first 3 digits of the number that Obama is using, (042) were assigned to the state of Connecticut. Obama was never a resident of Connecticut and there is no legitimate reason for him to have this number.

    I can disclose this number and make it public in this article for two reasons:

    1. Inadvertently Obama himself made it public when he published his tax returns on line and did not flatten the PDF file. Thousands of individuals around the world opened the file using Adobe Illustrator program and got the number 042-68-4425.

    2. We know that this number was assigned to a resident of Connecticut born in 1890. (If you believe that Obama is that person, you can stop reading this article, as nothing will get through to you anyways.)

    In my research I was able to secure assistance of three licensed investigators: retired Scotland Yard senior officer Neil Sankey, licensed investigator Susan Daniels and recently retired senior Deportation Officer John Sampson. All of them searched different national databases, which are routinely used by licensed investigators and attorneys and came to the same conclusion: Barack Hussein Obama, President of the United States and commander in Chief does not have a valid Social Security number. National databases showed his name linked to several Social Security numbers, none of which was issued in the state of Hawaii, where he grew up. The number that Obama used more often for most of his life, is a Connecticut Social Security number issued to a resident of Connecticut, whose date of birth shows as 1890. This was the same number that Obama posted on his tax returns: 042-68-4425.

    I personally ran Obama’s registration with the selective service with the military. I entered Obama’s name, date of birth and the Social that Obama posted on line with his tax returns. It showed that indeed with yet another governmental agency Obama used this Connecticut Social Security number 042-68-4425.

    Later a researcher by name Linda Jordan ran this number through E-verify, official Social Security verification service. It showed no match between the number and the name Barack Obama.

    As I was conducting 21 law suits challenging Obama, I was getting thousands of e-mails and comments on my website Among thousands of e-mails were documents that came from concerned citizens from all of the country. Those documents showed more and more evidence of fraud committed by Obama and more and more evidence of unprecedented corruption in the top echelons of power in all three branches of the government and corruption among our manipulated media executives.

    I received an e-mail from a retired US air force colonel. Colonel Gregory Hollister ran yet another governmental Social Security Number Verification Service, SSNVS. It showed that the number Obama is using in his tax returns and selective service documents was never issued to Barack Obama.

    I watched the hype media reports about Obama. One of them was an evening report with Katie Couric, who purports to be a top reputable journalist. The report showed Obama’s old school in Indonesia. It showed his school records, where Obama was listed as a citizen of Indonesia going under the last name of his step father Lolo Soetoro. The same Katie Couric, who did her best to show the Republican Sarah Palin in a negative light, was just sitting there, staring at the screen without ever posing a question: “What is Obama’s citizenship status? Is it America or Indonesian? What is his legal last name?”

    Couric just put on her blinders and dutifully took her place in the line of entertainment elite executives and “luminaries”, waiting to enter the White House and enjoy lavish parties. She was standing in line to kiss the feet of the liberal Democrat messiah, instead of waiting in line to ask some hard questions, choosing to sweep under the rug those pesky questions of Obama’s Indonesian citizenship, a name, which was not legally his, lack of a valid birth certificate and so many other unanswered important questions. Our entertainment elite who calls itself “progressive”, ended up being one of the most oppressive, repressive regime propaganda machines. Very few were reporting a word of truth about Obama and so many of them were complicit to the biggest case of fraud, forgery and treason in the US history.

    On May 2, 2011 I was scheduled to argue my case in front of the 9th Circuit court of Appeals. I was the first attorney to get any hearings in open court on Obama’s case. By 2009 I was able to reach the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals to hear the case. At the same time Donald Trump was raising concerns on Obama’s eligibility and Obama’s lack of a valid long form birth certificate. Obama’s approval ratings started dropping like a rock. By the end of April 2011 nearly half of Americans did not believe Obama had valid identification papers and they wanted to see those papers released.

    Obama had to do something. On April 27th, only a few days before the hearing in the 9th Circuit Obama released what he called a copy of his long form birth certificate. As I looked at it, I should see right away that it was a crude forgery, not even a good one. I remembered other long form birth certificates from 1961. Those were on white paper with sighs of aging, had a readily detectable seal, the document had defined borders. What Obama provided was obviously a joke. The paper was different, there were no signs of aging, no defined borders, letters and numbers were of different fonts and sizes.

    As I was invited to the interviews on TV and radio, I was viciously attacks. On May 1 in the evening, only a few hours before my hearing in the 9th circuit and only 3 days after Obama released his alleged birth certificate, Obama appeared on national TV looking mighty Presidential and announced that he captured Osama Bin Laden. Surprisingly Bin Ladin was not sent to Guantanamo for interrogation, to get information about his vast military network, but rather he was immediately shot in the head and thrown overboard to feed some marine life. Celebration started, next morning I was arguing my case in the environment of the national hysteria. Donald Trump with all his millions or billions simply retreated. Many attorneys, who were involved in this fight, gave up and decided to turn to something else, as they felt helpless to go against this corrupt establishment.

    I was watching everything that was going on around me and I felt like I was in the Germany in the early 30s. I would wake up in the middle of the night with nightmares. While the iron curtain was lifted in the Eastern Europe, the iron curtain of the most oppressive and the most illegitimate regime descended on the United States. I could barely stand the heavy load of everything thrown at me, the barrage of assaults, insults, tampering with my car, attacks on my family, attacks on my children. Some were saying: do you need the truth more than others? Is it worth it? Do you really believe you can win this David and Golliath fight? My answer to that was “Remember who won the David and Goliath fight?”

    My perseverance started to bear fruit. Soon I received reports from a number of experts: Douglas Vogt, Felicito Papa, John Sampson. All of them were confirming that Obama’s alleged birth certificate was a forgery. In January of 2012 for the first time in the U.S. history I was able to issue a valid, court confirmed subpoena for the US President (or should I say someone usurping this position) to appear in court and provide his valid identification papers. Obama filed a motion to quash my subpoena. His motion was denied by a judge. Obama had to appear, however he was a no-show. It became crystal clear to everybody in the courtroom that he and his attorney, Michael Jablonski, did not show up for trial, as they have nothing to show. Obama does not have any valid identification papers. On March 1, 2012 I was fully vindicated, as sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa county, Arizona confirmed all of my findings, confirmed that Obama is indeed a fraud, who is using forged identification papers.

    On March 9 it was announced that I qualified as a Republican candidate for the US Senate running in the primary. Recent polling by the most respectable Rasmussen-Pulse public opinion poll show me leading all of the other GOP and other challengers to California senator Diane Feinstein. While corrupt party establishment threw their support and money behind another candidate, Washington lobbyist Emken, I was getting support of the public, while the establishment puppet Emken was running dead last with only 1-2% of the vote. Of course, in our heavily rigged elections everything is possible and I would not put anything past our corrupt establishment, however so far so good, I am moving along and inching towards victory.

    Shortly, on April 16 2012, 9 am I will appear before a special judge, R Kenneth Coleman in the first Circuit court in Jackson, Mississippi. This will be more than just another trip, another one of over 50 grueling trips around the country in pursuit of this case. Now I have a confirmation of all of my findings by one of the most respected sheriffs in the country. I always said: “Obama needs to win every fight of eligibility, I have to win only once”. The fight continues and I hope to win this fight soon.

    For years Russians looked at the US as the beacon of Democracy and freedom. Today, in the dark days of illegitimate regime of the paperless crook Barack Hussein Obama, Americans are looking at Russians and other freedom loving people around the world and hoping for support in their struggle for freedom.

    Now there are white ribbons in America. Will Russians march in solidarity with us?

  8. Sheriff Arpaio forges forward with Obama birth controversy

    And don’t forget…….
    Silence of the Lapdogs
    by Diana West
    Warning: This column contains news of evidence of possible forgery and fraud in the long-form birth certificate of the president of the United States and – bonus – his Selective Service registration card.
    I figure the warning is necessary to prevent Americans, particularly Americans who work in news media and politics, from hurting themselves on any hard, sharp facts that might poke through my discussion of what is surely the biggest scandal to emerge around the seemingly dodgy docs Barack Obama is using to verify his identity.
    I refer to the logic- and history-defying news and political blackout of the March 1 press conference called in Maricopa County, Ariz., by Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse……….

  9. As I recall, when I worked for a TV/Radio station some years ago, all complaint letters to the station were kept on file. I’m not sure if it was an FCC rule or some other federal law. Does anyone know if the requirement is still in effect?
    Anyone want to fill up those complaint files and write to the Lame stream media for failing to exercise their right to Freedom of the Press.

    FAIR’s Media Contact List

    And remember to write your local TV and Radio stations.


    Didn’t Obama look again like another toady licking the boot of another of our enemies, begging for more time to act as their lowlife gopher they are using to destroy this last bastion that stands in the way of their renewal of world communism? Why should THEY give US time? We should be telling them to go hang while we stand firm in protection of our own security and those of our allies like Poland. We are now standing as another world enemy of freedom due to this lowlife and his appointee thugs over our controlling agencies. And the few “conservative” organizations who could report the truth are falling like dominoes. We don’t need any large bureaucratic agency to protect us from terrorists from outside….they’re only a smoke screen to cover what is going on within.

    Folks, if SCOTUS permits this totally commie bill to go forward we will be under restrictions no one has yet even imagined. There is sooo much other stuff in it that doesn’t relate to so called “healthcare” that has gone largely unreported. It’s a new kind of “manifesto” coup. I am afraid that our “court”, naive (except for the sworn ideologues), will avoid again using simple reasoning about the repercussions for the future and permit the demise of the country as a constitutional republic….after its other idiotic “decision” of ROE caused the horror that it has and is still causing in the demise of millions of citizens created in the image and likeness God. The whole thing should go down. If it’s so rotten, why divide up the stink and leave some behind?

  11. Good sign —

    …The Supreme Court’s conservative justices seemed sharply critical on Tuesday morning of the requirement that all Americans purchase health insurance, the constitutional question at the center of President Obama’s health care overhaul.

    In the first hour of a two-hour hearing on Tuesday morning, most of the court’s liberal justices were silent, but four conservatives expressed reservations that the mandate could significantly alter the powers of the federal government. So did Justice Anthony Kennedy, often the court’s swing vote.

    Kennedy said Tuesday that the law “changes the relationship of the federal government to the individual in a very fundamental way,” and he pressed the Obama administration’s lawyer, Solicitor General Donald Verilli, on why the insurance requirement wouldn’t leave Congress with nearly limitless authority.

  12. Exclusive transcript: Obama at Occidental ‘was looking forward to an imminent… revolution, where the working class would overthrow the ruling class’

    Dr. John Drew was a classmate of President Obama’s at Occidental College. He was interviewed last week by Paul Kengor on The Glen Meakem Show, and I took time to transcribe most of the podcast because of its importance.

    As the first commenter there says…”wow, riveting stuff”!!
