thought the First Amendment said enough about that participation? Silly you.”

Barack Obama.”…George Will, Washington Post December 11, 2007

“Why did Obama employ Robert Bauer of Perkins Coie, to request an advisory opinion on FEC matching funds that he was not eligible for?”…Citizen Wells

Obama FEC scandal.

Why is this so important?

Forget for a moment the other bias and chicanery associated with the FEC ( hard drive from IRS, etc. )

To the best of my knowledge, the FEC is the only federal government agency since 2008 to address the natural born citizen requirement for presidency in the US Constitution.

In Hassan v FEC they established that just being a US citizen is not enough. Hassan is a naturalized citizen and not eligible for matching federal funds.

They did not prohibit his running since they are only responsible for the monetary aspect.

What is significant about Ellen Weintraub being a commissioner?

1. She is a former Perkins Coie employee. You know, the law firm that made hundreds of thousands of dollars off of the Obama campaign, helped Obama keep records hidden via attorney Robert Bauer ( husband of Anita Dunn ) and requested an advisory opinion from the FEC in 2007 regarding Obama’s matching fund options.

2. Weintraub was a FEC commissioner in 2007 when the FEC provided the advisory opinion.

3. Weintraub was a commissioner in 2008 when the FEC rejected Philip J Berg’s plea for a ruling on Obama’s natural born citizen status.

4. Weintraub has been a commissioner since December 2002 despite her tenure of 6 years being exceeded.

5. Weintraub is a liberal Democrat.

6. Weintraub’s participation as a commissioner with the Perkins Coie ties to Obama is troubling.

7. Numerous articles have been written about Obama not replacing commissioners on the FEC, despite their terms running out, but I have found none other than my own questioning Ellen Weintraub being retained.

8. Why did Wikipedia make it appear like Weintraub began as a commissioner in 2008?

WHY DID OBAMA REFUSE MATCHING FUNDS IN 2008?

PART 4

Obama, attorneys and Democrats control FEC

The devil himself could not have come up with a more devious plan.

Robert Bauer, of Perkins Coie, on February 1, 2007 requested an advisory opinion to keep Obama’s option for matching funds open. Bauer knew full well that Obama, not being a natural born citizen, was not eligible for matching funds. The FEC advisory opinion from March 1, 2007 responded in the affirmative.Ellen L. Weintraub, former staff member at Perkins Coie, was a Democrat appointee of the FEC at that time. She remained well beyond her scheduled tenure with the help of Barack Obama.

Advisory Opinion Request: General Election Public Funding

From Obama attorney Robert Bauer to FEC

“This request for an Advisory Opinion is filed on behalf of Senator Barack Obama and the committee, the Obama Exploratory Committee, that he established to fund his exploration of a Presidential candidacy. The question on which he seeks the Commission’s guidance is whether, if Senator Obama becomes a candidate, he may provisionally raise funds for the general election but retain the option, upon nomination, of returning these contributions and accepting the public funds for which he would be eligible as the Democratic Party’s nominee.”

Vice Chair David Mason
Commissioner Michael Toner
Commissioner Hans von Spakovsky
Commissioner Steven Walther

Note, in the above advisory opinion request, Robert Bauer was a Perkins Coie attorney and Ellen Weintraub was a former Perkins Coie staff member.

FEC advisory opinion

From Robert D. Lenhard to Robert Bauer

“The Commission concludes that Senator Obama may solicit and receive private contributions for the 2008 presidential general election without losing his
eligibility to receive public funding if he receives his party’s nomination for President, if he (1) deposits and maintains all private contributions
designated for the general election in a separate account, (2) refrains from using these contributions for any purpose, and (3) refunds the private
contributions in full if he ultimately decides to receive public funds.”
December 11, 2007

George Will in the Washington Post writes.

“Paralyze The FEC? Splendid.”

“What if the country held an election and there was no one to make sure that candidates played by the rules — no agency that could issue regulations, write
advisory opinions or bring enforcement actions against those breaking the law?”

“The six-person FEC — three members from each party — enforces the rules it writes about how Americans are permitted to participate in politics. You
thought the First Amendment said enough about that participation? Silly you.

The FEC’s policing powers may soon be splendidly paralyzed.

Three current FEC members, two Democrats and one Republican, are recess appointees whose terms will end in a few days when this session of Congress ends –
unless they are confirmed to full six-year terms.

Four Senate Democrats decided to block the Republican, Hans von Spakovsky. Republicans have responded: “All three or none.” If this standoff persists until
Congress adjourns, the three recess appointments will expire and the FEC will have just two members — a Republican vacancy has existed since April. If so,
the commission will be prohibited from official actions, including the disbursement of funds for presidential candidates seeking taxpayer financing.”

The Post wants von Spakovsky confirmed only to keep the FEC functioning. He is being blocked because four senators have put “holds” on his nomination. One of those four who might be responsible for preventing the FEC from being able to disburse taxpayer funds to Democratic presidential candidates Joe Biden, Chris Dodd and John Edwards is . . . Barack Obama.”

“Obama to Break Promise, Opt Out of Public Financing for General Election”

“In a web video to supporters — “the people who built this movement from the bottom up” — Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, announced this morning that he will not enter into the public financing system, despite a previous pledge to do so.”

“In November 2007, Obama answered “Yes” to Common Cause when asked “If you are nominated for President in 2008 and your major opponents agree to forgo private funding in the general election campaign, will you participate in the presidential public financing system?”
Obama wrote:

“In February 2007, I proposed a novel way to preserve the strength of the public financing system in the 2008 election. My plan requires both major party
candidates to agree on a fundraising truce, return excess money from donors, and stay within the public financing system for the general election.”

Senate confirms FEC Nominees.

From the Wall Street Journal.

“The Senate confirmed five new members to the Federal Election Commission, ending a bitter political battle that had hobbled the elections watchdog for
months.

But the Senate action came with a final twist: Republicans accused Democrats of delaying the confirmation vote one day to allow the Democratic National
Committee to file a lawsuit against the presidential campaign of Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona.

The six-member elections agency had been without a quorum since December as Democrats objected to Republican nominee Hans Von Spakovsky for what they said was his partisan handling of voting-rights matters in his former job as a Department of Justice attorney. The dispute prevented the two parties from reaching an agreement to vote on any of the nominees.”

“Other commissioners confirmed Tuesday included Democrats Steve Walther and Cynthia Bauerly. The new Republican commissioners are Mr. Petersen, Don McGahn and Caroline Hunter. They join sitting commissioner Ellen Weintraub, a Democrat. The commission needs at least four members to take official action on election complaints, new campaign-financing rules and requests from campaigns for legal guidance.”

“Obama to Most Likely Avoid FEC Audit”

“The Federal Election Commission is unlikely to conduct a potentially embarrassing audit of how Barack Obama raised and spent his presidential campaign’s record-shattering windfall, despite allegations of questionable donations and accounting that had the McCain campaign crying foul.

Adding insult to injury for Republicans: The FEC is obligated to complete a rigorous audit of McCain’s campaign coffers, which will take months, if not
years, and cost McCain millions of dollars to defend.

Obama is expected to escape that level of scrutiny mostly because he declined an $84 million public grant for his campaign that automatically triggers an
audit and because the sheer volume of cash he raised and spent minimizes the significance of his errors. Another factor: The FEC, which would have to vote to
launch an audit, is prone to deadlocking on issues that inordinately impact one party or the other – like approving a messy and high-profile probe of a
sitting president.

So, by declining public funding, Obama decreased the odds of an audit. And the FEC may not investigate due to political party affiliations of the FEC
commission members.”

May 1, 2009

“At midnight Thursday, the terms of Federal Election Commissioner Donald F. McGahn II (a Republican) and FEC Chairman Steven T. Walther (a Democrat) expired. Combined with Democrat Ellen L. Weintraub’s seat — she remains on the commission even though her term expired two years ago — President Obama has the opportunity to make his first three appointments to the six-member commission. Though FEC terms are set for six years, members are free to stay on until replacements are selected by the president and confirmed by the U.S. Senate.”

“Josh Zaharoff, deputy program director for Common Cause, argues that, short of complete overhaul, such a proposal would be the best way to ensure real
enforcement of election laws. The long-standing existing practice “ensures that the commissioners are likely to be loyal to their political party rather than
to election laws and the American people as a whole.”

After seven months without a quorum, the restocked FEC has drawn significant criticism from campaign-finance-reform advocates for its lack of serious,
independent enforcement. There have been a series of 3-3 deadlocks on key issues, resulting in a significant increase in the percentage of dismissed cases.”

“More FEC Terms Expire, But Replacements Unlikely”

“The terms of Chairwoman Cynthia Bauerly (D) and Commissioner Matthew Petersen (R) expire at the end of April. The terms of Donald McGahn (R) and Steven Walther (D) expired almost two years ago.

The longest-serving commissioner is Ellen Weintraub (D), whose term expired almost four years ago. The only commissioner who will be serving an unexpired term at the end of the month is Republican Caroline C. Hunter, whom Bush nominated in 2008, for a term that expires in April 2013.

Further complicating the confirmation process is a large list of pending issues before the FEC that will affect Obama’s own re-election campaign.
One of the biggest issues is how the FEC will write new rules in the wake of the Supreme Court’s Citizens United ruling, which would set boundaries for how
hundreds of millions of dollars can be spent by third parties in the presidential election and Congressional campaigns. The issue was so important to Obama
that he admonished the Supreme Court a few days after its decision in the case during his 2010 State of the Union address.”

“FEC Launches Audit Of Obama’s 2008 Campaign”

“The FEC’s decision to audit the campaign is not surprising, given that it was the largest federal campaign in history, raising more than $750 million in
receipts. If Obama’s campaign were not audited, it would have been the first presidential nominee’s campaign to escape such scrutiny since the public
financing system was created in 1976.

The potential for the FEC’s audit became increasingly more likely as the FEC questioned some of Obama campaign filings. In all, the FEC wrote 26 letters to
Obama for America warning the campaign that if it did not adequately respond to the agency’s questions that it “could result in an audit or enforcement
action.””

“As of the end of March, Obama for America had spent nearly $3 million on legal fees since the 2008 election. In all, the president’s campaign spent three
times more on lawyers after Election Day than in the two years preceding it.

The lion’s share of Obama’s legal spending went to Perkins Coie, a well-known Democratic legal and accounting firm. Perkins Coie is representing the Obama
campaign in all major legal matters, including seven of the FEC’s known investigations involving the White House bid. In each of these cases, the FEC voted to dismiss the case or found “no reason to believe” that the Obama for America or related committees had violated any laws.

Perkins Coie may be also representing Obama for America in the FEC’s spending investigation of a Republican National Committee complaint. A few weeks before the election, the RNC alleged that Obama’s campaign accepted donations from foreign nationals, received contributions that had exceed limits and submitted fictitious donor names to the agency. The status of this investigation is unknown, though the FEC confirmed it received the complaint.”

“Election Watchdogs Assail Obama on FEC Appointments”

“The groups are demanding that Obama shake up the board of commissioners at the Federal Election Commission, the only agency able to enforce campaign laws.
They say political divisions among the agency’s panel of six leaders have rendered it toothless.

“The bottom line is nothing can happen to change the commission unless the White House names new commissioners, and they are refusing to do so,” said Fred Wertheimer, president of Democracy 21, a nonpartisan advocacy group. “The result is going to be an election with no enforcement.””

http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2012/01/election-watchdogs-assail-obama-on-fec-appointments/

Why would Obama, as we know him, replace the FEC board. Since early 2007, Obama has been shielded by Robert Bauer and Ellen Weintraub. That’s right, as you read above, Weintraub is still on the FEC board, four years after her term expired. And don’t forget, after Obama secured the White House, he hired Robert Bauer as general counsel. Bauer has since returned to Perkins Coie to continue helping Obama keep his records hidden.

This is a clear conflict of interest!!!

And what about attorney ethics?

As stated above, Robert Bauer knew about Obama’s natural born citizen deficiency in February of 2007 and yet he filed a request for an advisory opinion on Obama’s behalf regarding Federal Matching Funds. This is fraud!

From Citizen Wells June 2, 2011.

  1. 5 Orwells to the US media.

  2. The same corruption that was so evident in Chicago has been elevated to the national level. Wow! In reading the litany of abuses withe FEC since before Soetoro occupied the W.H., I am once again overwhelmed with the shenanigans that have been and are going on. Every federal agency, committee, and judiciary has been permeated with the stench of illegal and vile behavior. The worst part is that relatively few Americans know about this or care.
    Thanks for the research and splendid presentation of the time line of these developments, CW!

  3. The people at the FEC did NOTHING to react to the complaint forwarded by the 2 Chicago attornies in 2009……instead the attornies withdrew their complaint.(WONDER WHY). the directive probably was written by Weintraub herself. This only solidifies my belief that the ENTIRE Federal Government is corrupt,which btw includes the RINOS. The handwriting has been on the wall for a VERY LONG TIME…………perhaps those who passed by it each day CANNOT READ……or don’t want to.

  4. CabbyAZ……..
    As I have said so many times in the past NOBODY WILL “GIVE A DAMN” UNTIL IT IS TOO LATE,AT WHICH POINT THEY WILL BEGIN SCREAMING,AND TRY TO BLAME GEORGE BUSH FOR THE PROBLEMS AT HAND.

  5. “Mr. McGahn is a Republican appointee to the Federal Election Commission, an agency with every bit as much potential for partisan meddling as the IRS. Due to leave the agency soon, Mr. McGahn’s parting gift is a campaign to rein in an out-of-control FEC bureaucracy. But the left is fighting that oversight and is determined to keep power in the hands of unaccountable staff.”

    “It also frustrates the FEC’s staff, which has responded by going around the commissioners. The Federal Election Campaign Act (FECA), for instance, makes it clear that staff may not commence investigations until a bipartisan majority (four members) of the commission votes that there is a “reason to believe” a violation has occurred. In theory, this provision should guard against IRS-like witch hunts.

    Except that over the years staff have come to ignore the law, and routinely initiate their own inquiries—often on little more than accusations they find on blogs or Facebook . For a sense of how these investigations can go off the rails, consider that Lois Lerner —before serving as the center of today’s IRS scandal—was the senior enforcement officer at the FEC. A Christian Coalition lawyer has testified that during a (sanctioned) FEC investigation in the 1990s—in addition to generating endless subpoenas, depositions and document requests, Ms. Lerner’s staff demanded to know what Coalition members discussed at their prayer meetings and what churches they belonged to. Once staff gets rolling, there is little to stop them.

    More troubling to some FEC commissioners has been the staff’s unsanctioned and growing ties to the Obama Justice Department.”

    “These ties are disturbing, since the Obama campaign pioneered the tactic of demanding that Justice pursue criminal investigations of its political opponents as a means of intimidation. The FEC’s info-funneling to Obama Justice raises the obvious question of whether Obama Justice wasn’t in turn influencing FEC reports. (It also raises another question: If Justice had this kind of pipeline to the FEC, did it have one to the IRS?)

    These questions are why election law requires bipartisan diligence over investigations and information sharing. Mr. McGahn is attempting to right the ship by getting the commission to adopt a new enforcement manual that would require uniform procedures. Yet FEC Chairman Ellen Weintraub has been uncharacteristically quiet on the issue,”

  6. FEC Vice Chairwoman Ann Ravel, left, with fellow Commissioner Ellen Weintraub. Both are Democrats.

  7. They are all nothing but political appointees, doing what they were appointed to do.

    They were appointed to, cover for the usurper, get the usurper past the system that normally referees elections using a BS advisory opinion from the FEC, that assumed he was eligible, by directing the subject matter to funding, and a potential nomination, and made no mention of the usurper’s eligibility to even be on the ballot. Whistling past the graveyard!

    The democrats did the same thing during the Senate resolution 511 fiasco, when they used the usurper as an example of what a natural born Citizen was, because Hawaii was a State before Obama was supposedly born there. Just sickening!

WHY DIDN’T THE TMA GET ALL HOT AND BOTHERED BY THAT COMMERCIAL?I OWN TWO LITTLE POOCHES OF MY OWN,A HAVANESE TERRIOR,AND A LITTLE BICHON FRISE, AND YOU CAN BE SURE THAT THEY BOTH GET A BETTER LEVEL OF CARE THAN THEIR OWNER DOES, AND I TREAT THEM AS THOUGH THEY ARE MY OWN FLESH AND BLOOD. I DEARLY LOVE BOTH OF THEM! EACH DAY THEY BRING A SPECIAL JOY INTO MY DAY.

  14. AND NOW……
    ……..the slimey little Soetoro gutter creeps,are meddling in the Israeli election process, but it is not for the purpose of aiding Netanyahu, instead it is for the purpose of destroying his credability,among his own people. Hopefully he will round them up and either put them in jail,or send them back to the US along with a note pinned on each of them DO NOT RETURN TO ISRAEL,OR YOU WILL FACE MORE JAIL TIME. Such an act would definitely strengthen his hand on election day. hhHopefully the Israelis already know that it is time to re elect Netanyahu, and as long as the Soetoro goon squad stays out of it his chances are more than excellent of being re elected.

  15. IS THIS WISHFUL THINKING…OR WHAT?

  16. oldsailor82 — Shouldn’t there be some kind of law against sending campaign operatives to another nation to slant their election process? There’s so much corruption under Obama. I, personally, do not believe he really won our last Presidential election. I believe the last Presidential election was rigged. The operatives who did this were able to rig it for Obama and couple of candidates, but not for the whole House. Tell me how the same people that elected a Republican House of Representatives elected a Democrat for President? Didn’t happen, except by fraud. So now he’s openly trying to interfere with the Israeli process. He releases terrorists for a deserter who converted to Islam and is allowing Iran to continue with its nuclear development. Iran just launched a satellite into space. Then I read at National Review online, millions of illegals have been granted work permits to enter the US without being checked by the State Department. Did I get that right? I think that’s what I read.

    URGENT: Obama’s Muslim Adviser Busted Going Off on Insane, Anti-Christian Rant [TWEETS]

    Another disgraced Obama adviser.

    conservativetribune.com

    http://conservativetribune.com/obamas-muslim-adviser-busted/

  19. “Case in point, last week, two teenagers in New Jersey were going around their neighborhood advertising their snow-shoveling service right before the big storm hit.

    Seems pretty enterprising. But in the New America where security trumps all else, a local resident called the police to report about the teens’ “suspicious activity”.

    It’s the starkest example of how “if you see something say something” is one of the most enslaving, destructive mantras in history.

    Police actually came out to investigate since, apparently running a snow-shoveling business is something that only criminal terrorists would do.

    Even when the police saw that it was just two harmless kids trying to earn some money, they didn’t let them go on about their business.

    Instead they forced them to stop. Because in the Land of the Free, it seems you need a permit in order to offer to shovel snow for people.

    And so these two entrepreneurial teenagers were sent home by the police for their lack of permitting after being suspected of suspicious activity by a local resident.
    Just think about the lesson that’s being reinforced here: if you get off your ass, go out there, and try to take charge of your financial future, you’ll end up with nothing but a bunch of headaches, accusations, and unpleasant encounters with the government.”

  20. BOB STRAUSS…..
    thanks for that post about Admiral Lyons……

    Admiral Lyons is absolutely correct in his speech on what Islam is and is not. Thank God we still have men like him around.

    He is also correct when he said ‘the reason Obama did not go to Paris as all the other free world leaders did, was to send a SIGNAL to the radical Islamic groups’.

    I, and many others who post here at CW said the same thing…..the sneaky little bastard has been sending signals and weapons ever since he has bee in office to those who hate America….and work for our defeat….

    Yet, no one in a position to do anything about his TREASON dares to step forward……that is a SIGNAL to me.

    That is telling me in a very plain language that every damn Congressman and Senator, and every federal judge, and all the top military generals and admirals, are as guilty toward the final destruction of America as is Obama……perhaps even more so because…..

    They know he is a foreign usurper, and have known it long before he took office, yet not ONE person has stood up to publicly question the lying little bastard. Why?

    There is only ONE reason why no one in a governmental position of power has not stood up to question the known imposter.

    That is because they are ALL in on ‘the take down of America’.

    How else can their silence and complacency be explained? That makes them (Congressmen/Senators, and judges) just as guilty as the perpetrator.

    Having knowledge of a crime and not doing something to correct it makes a person as guilty, or even more guilty as the criminal who does the crime, and there is not a single elected Congressman or Senator, who can say without lying, that he does not know the truth about this imposter who has taken over our government.

    At what price does an elected Congressman or Senator place on the freedoms he has sworn to protect ?, and the sacred oath of office he took to protect and defend our Constitution ?, and above all, his commitment to the American people who are no more than helpless sheep being lead to the slaughter ?

    Everyone, including myself, are quick to blame Obama, or Soetoro, or whatever his name is, but this little puppet is only doing the bidding of a greater unknown power…….who is pulling his strings.

    The REAL public blame lies at the feet of our 535 elected Congressmen and women and 100 senators (whom we sent to Washington) who sit behind their desk knowing everyday that at any time, this impostor can and will bring out government to it’s knees. Great blame also lies with the 4th estate also…..

    Since the founding of this country, the press has been the public’s watchdog against corrupt politicians and crooks who would destroy our country that was won with blood, sweat, and tears…..

    Now 4th estate is in bed with the crooks and crooked politicians leaving the common man no place to seek redress or a wrong. The American people have also permitted this too happen when we let cooperate America take over and crawl in bed with the scum running this country.

    At this time, the American people have no one to turn too, no one to champion their cause, and no one willing to stand up to the bastards who are destroying what many have given their lives and fortunes to establish……

    For this, when America go down, and they haul ole Glory from the flagpole for the last time, and when they take all the real patriots who have recognized this self-destruction and spoke of it off to an internment camp…then it will be too late to act.

    Most of us who post here have seen this slide down the slippery slope for many years, and we write about it, and we have spoken of the dangers we are up against, but we also recognize that we are a minority…so our actions have been limited.

    We write our Congressman only to be laughed off….we write our newspaper only to be ignored….we file lawsuits only to be told ‘we have no standing’.

    We have been put in the corner and told to ‘shut up and be good little slaves’…or else.

    Our Constitution leaves the slaves only one ONE remaining course of action.

    CW,
    If the regime can’t tax the activity, it’s not going to happen!

    It’s “shake down” money for this group of criminals, and it’s the Chicago, union way. Force compliance, pay to play!

  22. That says it all doesn’t it Bob……

  23. oldsoldier79,
    The Representatives of the thirteen states, believed it was the right thing to do. Many of their reasons for it still hold true.

  24. Enjoy….this came from a blogger over at Weasel Zippers

    An Israeli doctor says:
    “In Israel, medicine is so advanced that we cut off a man’s testicles, put them on another man, and in 6 weeks, he is looking for work.
    The German doctor says:
    “That’s nothing, in Germany we take part of a brain, put it in another man, and in 4 weeks he is looking for work.
    ” The Russian doctor says:
    “Gentlemen, we take half a heart from a man put it in another’s chest, and
    in 2 weeks he is looking for work.
    ” The American doctor laughs:
    “You all are behind us. Six years ago, we took a muslim with no brains,
    no heart and no balls and made him President.
    Now, the whole country is looking for work!”

  25. Oh, oh…..I am in moderation. my name is Ginger not Gingert. My arthritis is causing my fingers to hit two keys at a time. hahahahaha

  26. London cab driver’s answer to a request from a Muslim to turn off the radio.  (You just got to love the Brits.) 

    A devout Arab Muslim entered a black cab in London.  He curtly asked the cabbie to turn off  the radio because as decreed by his religious teaching, he must not listen to music because in  the time of the prophet there was no music, especially Western music which is the music of  the infidel.  
       
    The cab driver politely switched off the radio, stopped the cab and opened the door. 
       
    The Arab Muslim asked him, “What are you doing?” 
       
    The cabbie answered, “In the time of the prophet there were no taxis, so p*ss off and wait for a camel..” 

  27. Bob Strauss…….
    The Declaration of Independence tells it like it is,and it also tells us what we need to do to fix the problem. Sadly when or if the resurrection of America ever comes to fruition it will make the war crimes trials of the Nazis look like child’s play,and there will be a hell of a lot more of the criminals,than there was in 1946 who will FEEL THE BITE OF THE BIGHT,and afterward the decorations to the live oaks should be left for all wannabes to look at as each day passes. When an elected official,and/or the judge of a federal court KNOWS of a CRIMINAL venture,but fails to take any action he/she automatically become accessories to the act. I believe that there are 535 people in Congress who have known since day one ,and another 127 judges in the judicial who also knew from day one,which BTW includes Roberts,as well as two recently installed justices. So we have a corrupted FEC,a corrupted Congress, a corrupted judicial,and criminally active executive branches. The corruption also includes the upper echelon of the military services. Yet which has been proven to probable cause seems to fall upon DEAF EARS……understandably so because the people to whom the deaf ears are attached,are also accessories. Many of us know exactly what is fast becoming a reality,but it will require at least 100,000,000 million people to unite and ACT,as one to be successful. Remember in WAR there are NO ENFORCEABLE LAWS. The only enforcement leaves the muzzle of a rifle at 2700FPS! lock and load! fire when ready!

  28. Cabby AZ………Great story, loved every word of it. har har BTW are you in a position to comment on the allegations that many people are going to get hit with IRS fines for being UNDERINSURED,when they file their tax returns. This concerns people who have Advantage Plans.You have my email addy if you don’t want to say anything at CW just drop me a line on the subject.

    I sure did not pay attention to the miss spelling of Ginger. har har
    Any way I took the t off of Ginger, copied, and pasted my post again. I think it is funny. Hope Mr. Wells catches it and deletes the other post.

    Well I am going to put this old bag of bones to bed it is 10:25 pm my time.

  32. oldsailor82….Almost for got! The county where I used to live where the evil corrupted prosecutor tried to send my grandson to life in prison on false charges was bragging that he was going to be a judge! Well the two female judges moved up when the one judge retired. Forgive me for not using names for right now but in time I will shout to the world to expose that SOB. Anyway…the open judgeship is still open, he is still prosecutor, just recently got sworn in as prosecutor. I am praying so hard that our governor is not appointing him! We have reason to believe that several attorneys filed a complaint against the prosecutor and just maybe there will be another person who will fill that slot.

  33. Ginger….
    Sleep well,and dream of God! Have a great day tomorrow.

  34. Hi Old Sailor,
    Anyone using a Medicare Advantage Plan is on Medicare usually. Isn’t that right? Well, people on Medicare (a government plan) already have an exemption from Obamacare. So the penalty will not apply. Of course, I’ve heard where medicare advantage plans are possibly going to be severely restricted, but that does not concern penalties. It is those folks who are not under some sort of government plan who are either going to have to find another exemption, like “hardship”, low income, etc., or have to bite the bullet if they are not insured for the full year 2014 under a qualified insurance plan. It is one big mess, I’ll tell you that right now. One client and spouse were not insured part of the year. Then they got qualified insurance AND then the spouse went under Medicare for a few months. Each one is treated separately from what I can discern, plus the penalty is calculated on the months they were not covered. More paperwork. It may take longer to do the forms for the penalty than for the entire tax return.

  35. THIS IS WHAT YOU DO IF YOU HAVE NOTHING TO HIDE….

    According to Bloomberg news site Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker authorized Marquette University to release his records so he could clear up a supposed controversy. Walker apparently left college early for a job. Oh My!

    This is what you do if you have nothing to hide …

    Does the U.S. President Need a College Degree?

    Ted Turner, who revolutionized broadcast journalism when he started the Cable News Network, revels in telling how he was kicked out of Brown University for hosting a woman in his room. The university had the good sense to give him an honorary degree years later.

    The question of Walker’s missing diploma has arisen occasionally in Wisconsin. Opponents charged that there was something untoward about his dropping out of Marquette. He then authorized the university to release the records as proof there was no hidden story behind his departure. The governor has said that a college education isn’t a “base requirement” for high office. The Walker camp had no comment for this column.

    History might help Walker. There have been 12 presidents without college degrees, starting with George Washington and 10 others, including Abraham Lincoln, elected in the 19th century

    …..so far the only requirements of qualification for POTUS that I have been able to find,is 35 years of age,and NBC.I have been unable to uncover anything relating to level of education,as a qualifying factor.

  37. oldsoldier79……
    ……admiral Lyons told it like it is. He is 100% correct…….and I noticed that he said “There is no such thing as RADICAL Islam. Right again,the problem is ISLAM ITSELF……there is ONE OF THEM ILLEGALLY OCCUPYING OUR WACKY HOUSE,who is AIDING AND ABETTING THE ENEMY OF AMERICA,and who is now calling for the rewording of our Constitution. That is what the alleged leader of Honduras tried to do,and look what it got him. Does the upper echelon of our military have the gonads to do the same?

  38. oldsoldier79…….
    …….I have serious DOUBTS!

  39. CabbyAZ……
    Thanks for the getback. I am also covered under Veterans HC, but to date I have only used the VA once,and was even then thoroughly unsatisfied with the results. Up until recently I used Anthem Blue Cross,but I decided to give United HC a try this time around.

  40. Oldsoldier79…….
    ……..during my lifetime I have ran across a hell of a lot of so called EDUCATED people,and soon discovered that they were either BLATANT LIARS, and /or in a few instances possessed phoney sheepskins. That is one reason why I always relied upon skilled TRADESMEN with a proveable resume. This never let me down. I have always been of the belief that it ISN’T your level of education so much as it is whether you know how to use the gray matter that you arrived on earth with…….and in addition to, but not aside from this “It is what you learn after you know it all that counts”!

  41. Oldsailor82……

    Just got back from the doctor….he wants to schedule a ‘nuclear stress test’ for me…whatever the hell that is.

    you are right on all counts….

    1. no educational requirements for POTUS…..if there was, the idiot we have in there now who has an IQ of 15 would fail the test.

    2. we definitely have a Muslim in control at the White House…otherwise we wouldn’t be aiding and abetting the same damn enemy our soldiers are fighting.

    3.as Admiral Lyons said, there is no such thing as radical Islam…’it is what it is…. it’s Islam’…and that’s the worlds problem…and it the world don’t wake soon and smell the coffee, that damn black rag they call ISIS will soon be flying over all of Europe because of their ‘political correctness’ and their refusal to deal with the problem they have created….then America’s next.

    4. And again you are right…our top military leaders are ‘leaders in name only’….most of them have a chest full of medals they bought at the PX…and I doubt seriously if they have seen a single day of combat…of which they are now putting our young men into.

    5. and as far as the republican I would choose for PTOUS …that would be Scott Walker. He seems to be the only real American in the race…and he damn sure set the unions on their butts in Wisconsin and straightened that state out…maybe he could do the same thing to those liberal democrats in Washington…..as far as the rest of the RINO’s running, I don’t think any are worth the powder it would take to dispose of them.

    6. P.S….and Hillary’s problems have just begun…she will not shake Benghazi, and she shouldn’t be allowed to skate punishment either…..as I have said before…murder is murder, and the guilty must be punished….I predict that Hillary is going down in flames…very soon, then the lib’s will be scrambling to find another like her…..but that shouldn’t be a problem, all of those liberal bastards have the same mind set and goals….the destruction of America.

  42. oldsailor82….

    Experience is the best teacher I have found…..and I have also discovered that anyone who isn’t doing anything is not learning a damn thing…so;

    Bottom line is we have had a POPTUS in office for almost 7 years who hasn’t learned a damn thing….he is as dumb as a ‘bag of hammers’ now and as he was before he took office, perhaps now he has even more hammers in his bag that before he took office…..

    If he had been anything other than a liberal democrat, the press would have already laughed him out of office……..as it is, they let him continue making a fool of himself…..someone needs to educate the dumb little bastard.

  43. Heard on the radio just now, that ISIS burned the Jordanian pilot to death and put out a video showing it.

    The pilot was a member of an influential tribe in Jordan, from what I understand, the fighting is about to intensify as a result of ISIS’s killing of this pilot.

  44. SueK,
    What’s all the hoopla about vaccinations?

    Are we being set up for forced “vaccination”, extermination, by the government?

  45. BOB…

    If Jorden has any balls…they will “cut off that female terrorist head in public… exactly like ISIS does…then bury her in pig guts also in public….

    Enough is enough…we have past that position already.

  46. Sad!

    Sorry, Bob; 50″ of snow on the ground here, but I’m coming up for air..

    I think this was all part of the plan: Bring in previously eradicated diseases via the illegals, then mandate vaccinations.

    While I don’t know what’s up their sleeve, I can tell you that I refuse any vaccinations (other than the tried and true ones, like pneumonia) because some of the ingredients in those vaccines would scare the daylights out of you.

    Haven’t been to work for two days, but I’ll check with the few non-moonbats in the place when I return and see what they know. For now, I won’t take ANY shot from ANY provider.

    I used to perform nuclear stress tests. Not sure how much the technology has changed, but I can give you the basics.

    Wear comfortable pants and shoes. The technologist will hook you up with leads to perform a constant ekg during both phases of the test. It is usually done in 2 parts one at rest and one following a treadmill stress test.

    You will be given an intravenous injection (painless) of a very low dose of radioactive tracer. It used to be Thallium 201 but I think now they use Technetium 99m, both are very safe for diagnostic purposes.

    They will have you lay on your back on a scanning table. Usually they can give you pillows under your knees and head for comfort. Most likely you will raise your left arm up over your head. The SPECT scanner will be programmed to make a circle over your chest stopping and scanning at specific intervals. All you have to do is lay still comfortably and breathe normally. They radioactive tracer is used so the camera can depict blood flow (perfusion) to all parts of your heart. Sometimes at maximum stress (after the treadmill stress test) vessels can restrict the flow of blood. They will compare your blood flow while you are at rest vs stress. The scanning is tomographic where the technologist can take the images and virtually slice into the pictures of your heart so they can observe it from top to bottom and from side to side. They can determine the integrity of your main blood vessels, and damage (if any) to any part of the heart. This is a very common procedure and the next best test to have other than an angiogram which is slightly invasive.

    Good luck.

  51. HonorFirst | February 3, 2015 at 4:15 pm |

    I had that test a year ago, and they could find “no blockages, and no abnormalities”, at 66 yrs old, I was relieved by the news.

    It was a pleasant experience, the Technologists were funny, and relaxing.

  52. bob strauss | February 3, 2015 at 2:29 pm |

    Thanks, Bob.

    I used the Pam on the shovel, and even offered some to my plow guy. It also worked well on the roof rake; had a 5′ drift up there and the Pam slid most of it right off. I should write to the company; they may wanna start a new ad campaign: ‘Pam. It not only slides your eggs off the pan, but the snow off your driveway, too!’ I think that’d be a winner :).

    I have 50″ of global warming in my backyard; the snow’s up to my chest, and I’m no shrimp. Gotta figure out a way to get it all to Algore.

    If you set your mind to believe that everything that comes out of the White Hut these days is a lie, you’ll be fine. Whenever they say ‘It’s in the best interest of the American people,’ do the opposite. Remember, this is an illegal enemy combatant we’re dealing with.

  54. Oh, my, SueK…..You are drowning in snow! This has to be a record for Boston area – right? I cannot fathom what it would be like. Can cars move about on the streets?

    Hope that it all ends soon for you. Maybe this will be the last for the winter? I trust so, but with all of the global warning, who knows?

  55. Hi Cabby,

    It’s a record for Boston’s total snowfall in a seven day period.

    They usually get 46″ for the entire winter and they’re fast approaching that. It’s always a problem moving the snow because the city is not laid out in a grid system like most normal cities are.

    Traffic is slow and the MBTA (public transportation) is either severely delayed, or broken down. And this city wants to host the Olympics?

    BTW, two more storms coming for Thursday and next Monday. I was looking for houses for sale in your neck of the woods yesterday :).
