Obama Zombies, Jason Mattera, Al Franken, Health Care Bill lowers costs?, Sean Hannity interview, Obamamania, hypnotic trance, Feeling of omnipotent ecstasy and euphoria

Obama Zombies, Jason Mattera.

We have been aware of the hypnotic trance that the Obama kool aid drinking followers fall into since the early days of the 2008 election. Jason Mattera, author of “Obama Zombies”, was interview recently by Sean Hannity on Fox.

“Waking Up the ‘Obama Zombies'”

“JASON MATTERA, AUTHOR, “OBAMA ZOMBIES”: Hey, Senator Franken, Jason Mattera. Appreciate your remarks in there. You were awesome.
SEN. AL FRANKEN, D-MINN.: Thank you.
MATTERA: I was wondering, which portions of the health care bill lower costs? Is it the provision giving $7 billion to fund jungle gyms, or the provision mandating employers provide time off for breast feeding?
FRANKEN: I — give me the jungle gyms.
MATTERA: Right here, the jungle gyms…
FRANKEN: Yes.
MATTERA: … is on 1-1-8-4.
FRANKEN: Yes, show it to me right now.
MATTERA: OK. To provide physical activity opportunities, promote healthy lifestyle. So why is that the job of the federal government?
FRANKEN: OK. Now, let me…
MATTERA: Why is it the job of the federal government, and — to create an army of monkey bars? Go ahead. Answer.
FRANKEN: No, no. You have…
MATTERA: Go ahead, answer it.
FRANKEN: You have to shut up right now
MATTERA: I’m sorry.
FRANKEN: … and listen to me…
MATTERA: Go ahead.
FRANKEN: … instead of interrupting me every time I say something.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
SEAN HANNITY, HOST: Wow. That was Jason Mattera’s recent account with Minnesota Senator Al Franken on Capitol Hill, and he’s the author of the brand-new book, “Obama Zombies: How the Liberal Machine Brainwashed My Generation” and the media spokesman for the Young America’s Foundation. A great foundation.

Jason Mattera, that is priceless. That is priceless.
MATTERA: I appreciate being on the program.
HANNITY: You have to shut up, let me answer.
MATTERA: If you have Al Franken or Senator Smalley that’s exactly what he said, “Shut up.” When you have a person going up and questioning him on important contents of the bill. And as your viewer just saw, he had no idea of these certain provisions. And that’s what we need to confront these corrupt politicians and make them justify every single line in these 2,000-page bills.
HANNITY: And you were literally reading from the bill to him.
MATTERA: Reading from the bill. And then you know what? They try to…
HANNITY: I don’t know. I didn’t read it.
MATTERA: They tried to spin it and spin it, and they turned faster than Rahm Emanuel in his ballet shoes. I mean, they do not know what’s in their own bill and they’re voting for. This is why Americans are boiling mad.
HANNITY: Is Rahm “Rahmbo Dead Fish,” is he still doing the ballet?
MATTERA: He’s definitely doing that hope a dope mantra, that certainly drove young people to vote for Barack Obama in large margins. And now they’re paying —
HANNITY: I used the term Obamamania. And I define it as the hypnotic trance, the feeling of omnipotent ecstasy and euphoria at the sight of the Anointed One during the campaign. People, like, fell into a trance. You’re right.”

Grassroots in Nebraska update, February 10 2010, Meeting February 11, Sovereignty Resolution, Open thread, Larry Sinclair, Government control of health care, Rezko, Blagojevich, John Brennan, MN senate race, Al Franken

Lest we forget.

There is much going on, we are on the road to saving this country from collapse and we must continue to fight to save it. There are many unfinished stories to write and to stay on top of. Here are just a few of them.

John Brennan’s controversial handing of terrorists, his controvesial past and his very suspicious ties to Obama.

The Rod Blagojevich trial, Tony Rezko sentencing and what potentially will be revealed about Obama.

The suspicious MN senate race and seat that Al Franken obtained.

The continuing struggle of Larry Sinclair to keep his story alive and the efforts to silence him.

Aside from the Tony Rezko trial and subsequent indictments of Obama associates such as Rod Blagojevich, Larry Sinclair and his story may have been the single biggest catalyst for many to begin questioning Obama early in 2008. He has not backed down. As many of you know, from the moment that Sinclair came out with his Youtube video in January 2008, he has constantly been attacked and no expense has been spared to shut him down. This is part of a much larger story of the MSM being complicit in hiding Obama’s past. We were not going to let that happen then and now.

I want to thank everybody for their efforts last night to help Larry Sinclair. We are all connected as Americans and as voyagers on this planet. We need each other and I believe one of the lessons of this life is awareness of the plight of others. Mother Teresa certainly exemplified that. Our efforts to save this country also bear this out as well as our efforts to look out for each other. Thanks to all who responded to my plea last night. It is not just about money. Caring, praying for and just doing what you can are what it is all about.

There is a new story that has developed out of the Larry Sinclair struggle. This story reveals what can happen when the government has control of our lives, in this case, Social Security. I have first hand knowledge of this. Just as I was writing this article, I received an email.

“Citizen Wells,  What do you think about a mass petition to US Senators
from Florida with everything that has happened to Larry and demand that his Social Security be reinstated.  I have had a battle royal with them myself, they have stopped and started mine three different due to letters being sent to them from my enemies.  If we could get a petition together including the facts from the beginning and have it hand delivered, I really believe it might make a difference.  They all know this SOB is illegal but want to push it from someone else’s proof.  this might work, especially through the Republican side.  Who Knows???  After all, with Larry’s illness, Obama with his dirty tricks is denying him medical care that will save his life.  Just A thought.  I can’t donate, but I can help push a petition and information of whats going on.”

Anyone out there think that we need to give the US Government control over our health care? 

Our friends in Nebraska have been doing their best to fight the bribery of Ben Nelson and prevent the federal government from becoming too powerful. From Grassroots in Nebraska.

SOVEREIGNTY
Senator Tony Fulton’s Sovereignty Resolution has been scheduled for a hearing before the Government, Military, and Veterans Affairs Committee, Friday, February 19 at 1:30pm.
It is currently the first item scheduded to be heard.
**WE NEED AS MANY BODIES AS WE CAN GET AT THAT HEARING –
THINK OF IT AS THE BIGGEST TEA PARTY WE’VE EVER PUT ON**

Linda Rohman and I had a meeting with Senator Fulton on February 1, prior to the hearing being scheduled, to offer what ever support we could in helping the bill to pass. We had a follow-up meeting yesterday to give a progress report on our plans.

Linda has had prior successful experience in coordinating legislative advocacy with the Nebraska Home Educators’ Association. A very restrictive homeschooling bill had been proposed which went no further because NCHEA coordinated testimony and rallied up HUGE attendance at the Education Committee hearing. 1200 homeschoolers descended on the Capitol that day.
*We need THAT kind of support for the Sovereignty Resolution*
Come to the meeting Thursday evening to hear about the effort underway to ensure the passage of the bill.
I will be putting out further details on Friday.

One aspect of these plans is now likely to involve testimony by Oklahoma State Representative Charles Key. Representative Key was the author of the Oklahoma Sovereignty Resolution, which was successfully passed over the OK Governor’s veto in 2009. He is considered a leader in the Sovereignty movement; his bill has been used as a “template” by other states. He has testified before other state’s legislatures, including most recently, Kansas in January.
We will have received additional information about Rep. Key’s ability to come to Lincoln by the Thursday.

In addition to the effort to get people to the hearing, we are planning associated events and we will need many volunteers.
We look forward to seeing you at the meeting. If you are not able to attend but would like to help with the effort, please let us know!
Thank you,
Shelli

Al Franken, MN senate election, Minnesota judge declares uncounted absentee ballots open to public inspection, January 8, 2010, Norm Coleman Republican opponent, Recount and court battle 312 votes

The MN senate race between Democrat Al Franken and Republican Norm Coleman smelled from start to finish. Recounts and a court decision handed Al Franken the senate seat with a margin of 312 votes.

From the Star Tribune, January 6, 2010.

“Minn. judge grants access to rejected ’08 ballots”

“ST. PAUL, Minn. – Six months after Democrat Al Franken tardily joined the U.S. Senate, a Minnesota judge has declared that uncounted absentee ballots from the drawn-out 2008 election should be open to public inspection.
The New Year’s Eve ruling from Ramsey County Judge Dale Lindman granted a media outlet’s request to inspect absentee ballots rejected as flawed, potentially giving a new glimpse into a Senate race that stretched well into 2009. Franken outlasted Republican incumbent Norm Coleman in a recount and court battle and won by 312 votes.
The ruling has its limitations and could be appealed. And there doesn’t appear to be any legal avenue for Coleman to change the election’s outcome.
For now, the decision applies only to Ramsey County, Minnesota’s second most populous. KSTP-TV and other Hubbard Broadcasting Corp. affiliates sued for access to the ballots there and have begun the legal process in Douglas, Olmsted and St. Louis counties, said Mark Anfinson, an attorney for the stations. No political interest is a party to the lawsuit.
Anfinson said he hopes Minnesota’s other 86 counties voluntarily defer to Lindman’s ruling. The goal of the ballot examination is to fully understand what worked and what didn’t in Minnesota’s election so policymakers can consider law changes, he said.
But even if as many as 10,000 uncounted ballots are eventually opened, it won’t be as simple as adding to each candidate’s tally.
“There’s no doubt that under any scheme of absentee ballot regulation some of those would be rejected,” Anfinson said. “There’s considerable effort that’s going to have to be invested in understanding why certain ballots weren’t accepted and others were.”

Rejected absentee ballots were a point of contention in the protracted election. Franken’s lawyers fought to get them re-examined and have some included in the count. During an election trial, Coleman’s attorneys tried to get more added by arguing that standards were inconsistently applied, with some counties taking a tougher stand than others.
For absentee ballots to count in Minnesota, voters must be registered, have a qualified witness, mail their signed ballot envelopes back before to Election Day and not cast a replacement ballot at the polls.”

We have so much on our plates already. However, this procedural catastrophe, which I consider to be chicanery, should be investigated further. 

Thanks to the great commenter and patriot Joyce.

ACORN voter fraud, Minnesota, Petition, Minnesota Majority, Investigation of ACORN in Minnesota, Al Franken, Norm Coleman, MN Secretary of State, Mark Ritchie, 43,000 new voters, 2008 election

The Minnesota senate race between Democrat Al Franken and Republican Norm Coleman was extremely close and the lead has changed several times. Even before the general election, there was concern about ACORN voter fraud in MN.

October 14, 2008

“As I expected, the investigations into ACORN and voter fraud has arrived to our fair state. From KSTP:

The Hennepin County attorney announced Tuesday they’ve launched an investigation into an allegation that an individual with the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, or ACORN, did not fully comply with Minnesota voter registration rules.

According to the allegation, a batch of registration forms were turned into the office of elections outside the ten-day period, but were turned in early enough to be registered to vote in the September primary.”

The win that was ultimately given to Al Franken has been challenged in court and new challenges continue to surface in light of more voting irregularities that have been discovered. Now, with the ever increasing awareness of ACORN monetary and voter fraud, there is a heightened sense that the votes in Minnesota should be subject to more scrutiny.

From Minnesota Majority, October 1, 2009:

“The Destruction of ACORN, the Strategy of Breitbart & Why We Must All Remain Vigilant”

“Yesterday, Minnesota Majority, together with 8 Minnesota gubernatorial candidates, issued a letter to Attorney General Lori Swanson calling for a formal investigation into potential illegal activities on the part of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) in Minnesota.

 
Recent news stories have revealed evidence of apparent systematic corruption within the ACORN organization.  At least 15 other states have launched investigations into potential election law and other violations on the part of ACORN.  A report issued earlier this year by the US House of Representatives Oversight Committee stated that “ACORN has repeatedly and deliberately engaged in systemic fraud. Both structurally and operationally, ACORN hides behind a paper wall of nonprofit corporate protections to conceal a criminal conspiracy on the part of its directors, to launder federal money in order to pursue a partisan political agenda and to manipulate the American electorate.”

Yet here in Minnesota, where we have just had a US Senate race decided by fewer than 400 votes, incredibly there has been no official statewide investigation into the ACORN organization.  Senator Al Franken, Secretary of State Mark Ritchie and Attorney General Lori Swanson were all endorsed by ACORN and elected to their offices with their help, but it is our hope that they will place the execution of the duties of their offices ahead of any political allegiances. These officials can prove their loyalty to the voters of Minnesota by responding to your call for an official statewide investigation into ACORN’s activities in Minnesota.”

“Petition Calling for an Investigation of ACORN in Minnesota 
 

Whereas recent news stories have revealed evidence of apparent systematic corruption within the Association of Community Organization for Reform Now (ACORN), and
 
Whereas a report issued by the US House of Representatives Oversight Committee states that ACORN has repeatedly and deliberately engaged in systemic fraud, and
 
Whereas at least 15 other states have launched investigations into potential election law and other violations on the part of ACORN, and
 
Whereas Minnesota Majority’s review of voter registration records has revealed thousands of irregularities, and
 
Whereas ACORN has publically acknowledged it was responsible for registering over 43,000 new voters in Minnesota prior to the 2008 election;
 
Therefore I do hereby call for for an official statewide investigation by law enforcement officials into potential illegal activities on the part of ACORN in the state of Minnesota.”

 
Bill O’Reilly: Sen Al Franken Won By ‘Acorn’ Voter Fraud?

2008 Election Certificate of Vote, Electoral College Electors, Minnesota Certificate, Secretary of State, US Constitution, Twelfth Amendment, Governor, Obama not eligible, Citizen Wells, Democratic Disaster, December 16, 2008, Al Franken, Norm Coleman controversy

“Ignorance is not bliss.”

“Knowledge is Power.”

Minnesota could soon be famous for another 2008 Election
controversy aside from the Al Franken, Norm Coleman
senate race controversy. The Certificate of Voters must
be signed and mailed to the US Senate. If Minnesota uses
the same Certificate that was used in 2004, they had better
rethink sending it in without complying with the reference
to the Twelfth Amendment to the US Constitution. There are
2 places in the Twelfth Amendment that refer to presidential
eligibility:

“as in the case of the death or other
constitutional disability of the President.”

“But no person constitutionally ineligible to the office of
President shall be eligible to that of Vice-President of the
United States.”

Everyone involved in the presidential election has an obligation
to uphold the US Constitution. MN has taken it one step further
and explicitly included it in their certificate.

One might ask how MN Electoral College Electors would know this.
The Citizen Wells blog along with organizations like Democratic
Disaster and many other people have been notifying election
officials in all 50 states regarding the serious eligibility
issues surrounding Barack Obama and the duties of all responsible.
In addition there are many court cases in state courts as well
as before the US Supreme Court. So, ignorance of the facts or
duties will be no excuse. Check the Certificate for signatures.
Those signing the 2008 Certificate without ensuring they are
complying with the Twelfth Amendment, are most certainly
guilty of “High Crimes and Misdemeanors” and certainly removal
from office.

California Certificate of Voters is questionable

Do we have any takers?

Anyone want to call the Governor or Secretary of State’s office in Minnesota?

Recall initiatives, impeachment, removal from office?
