The REAL Agenda!

Iraq: News Media
Just in case you happened to see the ABC News piece (if you watch ABC News) with interviews of 5 military folks in Iraq ? 3 planned to vote for Obama and 2 for Hillary; no mention of any McCain supporters. Well, here's the "Rest of the Story."

This from Major General (ret) Buckman, to a close friend of his:
My niece, Katelyn, stationed at Baluud , Iraq was assigned, with others of her detachment, to be escort/guard/ watcher for Martha Raddatz of ABC News as she covered John McCain's recent trip to Iraq . Katelyn and her Captain stood directly behind Raddatz as she queried GI's walking past. They kept count of the GI's and you should remember these numbers. She asked 60 GI's who they planned to vote for in November. 54 said John McCain, 4 for Obama and 2 for Hillary. Katelyn called home and told her Mom and Dad to watch ABC news the next night because she was standing directly behind Raddatz and maybe they'd see her on TV. Mom and Dad of course, called and emailed all the kinfolk to watch the newscast and maybe see Katelyn. Well, of course, we all watched and what we saw wasn't a glimpse of Katelyn, but got a hell'uva view of skewed news. After a dissertation on McCain's trip and speech, ABC showed 5 GI's being asked by Raddatz how they were going to vote in November; 3 for Obama and 2 for Clinton . No mention of the 54 for McCain.

Let's talk - skewing the news.....

Obama IS a Fruitcake!

Thank you Mindy for pointing out THIS article about Obama distorting the bible. I already knew Obama's view of the bible is distorted and wrong and his sense of morality is skewed. I think what bothered me more about the article is that Dobson suggested he may not vote for president. Even though I may not agree with everything McCain stands for - I have an obligation to NOT let Obama rule this land with the set of "non-morals" he preaches. McCain, at least, has a strong sense of right and wrong as far as life (he's Pro-life), Liberty (he understands our military role and foreign policy), and the pursuit of happiness (he doesn't want to rob the rich to give to the poor, he is for free enterprise and has a sense of morality). Good Lord - all the Christians need to step forward and do the right thing - NOT sit back and do nothing! Shame on you Dr. Dobson for mentioning your idea and possibly influencing people like that. My SIL and children have said - Our vote is for Jesus. I said, "unfortunately, if you vote for Jesus this go-around - it's a vote for the devil himself - OBAMA". :)

CHANGE - cause that's all you'll have when I'm done - Exactly!
Cindy McCain

This is an interesting article as not much was known about her but she was on Leno and it was an interesting interview. It turns out that she is a character as she is or has been a race car driver and is also a pilot. She flies John around the country to his rallies. After hearing that about her and reading this I now have a lot of respect for her.
Election 2008: Cindy Hensley McCain has been disparaged as a trophy wife, a Barbie, an heiress with fancy purses, even the Paris Hilton of politics. But there's more to the picture than meets the eye.

Yes, Mrs. McCain is the perfectly coifed blonde standing dutifully behind the senator during his speeches. And yes, she wears stylish clothing and carries a Prada purse. And it's true she doesn't say much. But feminist critics who write her off as a "stand-by-your-man" shrinking violet are selling her short. In many ways, Cindy McCain stacks up sturdier than Hillary Clinton or Michelle Obama. And she'd make a more impressive first lady.

Mrs. McCain: More than meets the eye.

While Obama's wife has been hating America, complaining about the war and undermining our troops serving in Afghanistan, McCain's wife has been worrying about her sons who actually are fighting or planning to fight
in the war on terror. One, in fact, was until a few months ago deployed in Iraq during some of the worst violence.
You don't hear the McCain's talk about it, but their 19-year-old Marine, Jimmy, is preparing for his second tour of duty. Their 21-year-old son, Jack, is poised to graduate from Annapolis and also could join the Marines as a second lieutenant. The couple made the decision not to draw attention to their sons out of respect for other families with sons and daughters in harm's way.

Cindy also says she doesn't want to risk falling apart on the campaign trail talking about Jimmy who was so young when he enlisted she had to sign consent forms for his medical tests before he could report for duty and potentially upsetting parents of soldiers who are serving or have been killed.

The McCain's want to make sure their boys get no special treatment. Same goes for their five other children, including a daughter they adopted from Bangladesh. During a visit to Mother Teresa's orphanage there, Cindy noticed a dying baby. The orphanage could not provide the medical care needed to save her life. So she brought the child home to America for the surgery she desperately needed. The baby is now their healthy, 16-year-old daughter, Bridget.

Though all seven McCain children including two Sen. McCain adopted from his first marriage are supportive of their father, they prefer their privacy to the glare of the campaign trail. Another daughter, Meghan, 23, helps him behind the scenes.

Cindy McCain not only cherishes her children, but also her country, which in an election year filled with America-bashing, is a refreshing novelty. She seethed when she heard Michelle Obama's unpatriotic remarks that she only
recently grew proud of America "I am very proud of my country," Mrs. McCain asserted.

She also may be tougher than the other women in the race. While Hillary thinks she's come under sniper fire on mission trips abroad, Cindy has actually seen violence. She witnessed a boy get blown up by a mine in Kuwait during a trip with an international group that removes land mines from war-torn countries.

Mrs. McCain also is a hands-on philanthropist. She sits on the board of Operation Smile, which arranges for plastic surgeons to fix cleft palates and other birth defects. She also has helped organize relief missions to Micronesia.

During a scuba-diving vacation to the islands, Mrs. McCain took a friend to a local hospital to have a cut treated. She was shocked, and saddened, by what she saw. "They opened the door to the OR, where the supplies were, and there were two cats and a whole bunch of rats climbing out of the sterile supplies," she recalled. "They had no X-ray machine, no beds. To me, it was devastating because it was a U.S. trust territory." As soon as she returned home, she arranged for medical equipment and teams of doctors to be sent to treat the island children.

Michelle Obama may contribute to CARE, which fights global poverty and works to empower poor women. Cindy sits on its board.

While the Democrat women talk about helping the poor and needy, Cindy McCain actually rolls up her sleeves and does it. Who's the out-of-touch elitist?

Here's Hillary in October of 2002: "Intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical, biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program."

Here's Al Gore in September of 2002: "We know that Saddam has stored nuclear supplies, secret supplies of biological and chemical weapons throughout his country."

Here's John Kerry in October of 2002: "I will be voting to give the president the authority to use force if necessary to disarm Saddam because I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands s a real and grave threat to our security."

Here's Senator Ted Kennedy: "We have known that for many years that Saddam Hussein is seeking and developing weapons of mass destruction." September of 2002.

And then Nancy Pelosi: "Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology, which a threat to countries in the region. And he's made a mockery of the weapons inspection process."

Interesting that these are the same people saying "shame on you" to GW....they must have very bad short term memories....

It Couldn't Be Said Any Better


By Michelle Malkin

Like Michelle Obama, I am a "woman of color." Like Michelle Obama, I am a working mother of two young children. Like Michelle Obama, I am a member of the 13th generation of Americans born since the founding of our great nation.

Unlike Michelle Obama, I can't keep track of the number of times I've been proud - really proud - of my country since I was born and privileged to live in it. At a recent speech in Milwaukee on behalf of her husband's Democratic presidential campaign, Mrs. Obama remarked, "For the first time in my adult lifetime, I am really proud of my country, and not just because Barack has done well, but because I think people are hungry for change."

Like Michelle Obama, I am a "woman of color." Like Michelle Obama, I am a working mother of two young children. Like Michelle Obama, I am a member of the 13th generation of Americans born since the founding of our great nation.

At a recent speech in Milwaukee on behalf of her husband's Democratic presidential campaign, Mrs. Obama remarked, "For the first time in my adult lifetime, I am really proud of my country, and not just because Barack has done well, but because I think people are hungry for change."

Mrs. Obama's statement was met with warm applause from other Barack supporters who have also apparently been devoid of pride in their country during their adult lifetimes. Or maybe it was just a Pavlovian response to the word "change." What a sad, empty, narcissistic, ungrateful, unthinking lot.

I'm just seven years younger than Mrs. Obama. We've grown up and lived in the same era. And yet, her self-absorbed attitude is completely foreign to me. What planet is she living on? Since when was now the only time the American people have ever been "hungry for change"?

Michelle, ma belle, Barack is not the center of the universe. Newsflash: The Obamas did not invent "change" any more than Hillary invented "leadership" or John McCain invented "straight talk." We were both adults when the Berlin Wall fell, Michelle. That was earth-shattering change. We've lived through two decades' worth of peaceful, if contentious, election cycles under the rule of law, which have brought about " change" and upheaval, both good and bad. We were adults through several launches of the space shuttle, in case you were snoozing. And as adults, we've witnessed and benefited from dizzyingly rapid advances in technology, communications, science, and medicine pioneered by American entrepreneurs who yearned to change the world and succeeded. You want "change"? Go ask the patients whose lives have been improved and extended by American pharmaceutical companies that have flourished under the best economic system in the world. If American ingenuity, a robust constitutional republic, and the fall of communism don't do it for you, hon, then how about American heroism and sacrifice? How about every Memorial Day? Every Veterans Day? Every Independence Day? Every Medal of Honor ceremony? Has she never attended a welcome-home ceremony for the troops? For me, there's the thrill of the Blue Angels roaring over cloudless skies. And the somber awe felt amid the hallowed waters that surround the sunken U.S.S. Arizona at the Pearl Harbor memorial.

Every naturalization ceremony I've attended, where hundreds of new Americans raised their hands to swear an oath of allegiance to this land of liberty, has been a moment of pride for me. So have the awesome displays of American compassion at home and around the world. When millions of Americans rallied to help victims of the 2004 tsunami in Southeast Asia - including members of the U.S.S. Abraham Lincoln Carrier Strike Group that sped from Hong Kong to assist survivors - my heart filled with pride. It did again when the citizens of Houston opened their arms to Hurricane Katrina victims and folks across the country rushed to their churches and offices of the Salvation Army and Red Cross to volunteer.

How about American resilience? Does that not make you proud? Only a heart of stone could be unmoved by the strength, valor, and determination displayed in New York , Washington , D.C., and Shanksville , Pa. , on September 11, 2001.

I believe it was Michael Kinsley who quipped that a gaffe is when a politician tells the truth. In this case, it's what happens when an elite Democratic politician's wife says what a significant portion of the party's base really believes to be the truth: America is more a source of shame than pride.

Michelle Obama has achieved enormous professional success, political influence, and personal acclaim in America . Ivy League educated, she's been lauded by Essence magazine as one of the 25 World's Most Inspiring Women; by Vanity Fair as one of the ten World's Best-Dressed Women; and named one of "The Harvard 100" most influential alumni. She has had an amazingly blessed life. But you wouldn't know it from her campaign rhetoric and her griping about her and her husband's student loans.

For years, we've heard liberals get offended at any challenge to their patriotism. And so they are again aggrieved and rising to explain away Mrs. Obama's remarks.

Lady Michelle and her defenders protest too much.

Obama's Not Exactlys

1.) "Selma March Got Me Born" - NOT EXACTLY,
his parents felt safe enough to have him in 1961
Selma had no effect on his birth, as Selma was in 1965.
(Google 'Obama Selma' for his full March 4,2007
and articles about its various untruths.)

2.) "Father Was A Goat Herder" - NOT EXACTLY,
he was a privileged, well educated youth, who went on to work
with the Kenyan Government.

3.) "Father Was A Proud Freedom Fighter" - NOT EXACTLY,
he was part of one of the most corrupt and violent governments
has ever had.

4.) "My Family Has Strong Ties To African Freedom" - NOT EXACTLY,
his cousin, Raila Odinga, has created mass violence in attempting to
overturn a legitimate election in 2007, in Kenya
. It is the first
widespread violence in decades. The current government is pro-American
but Odinga wants to overthrow it and establish Muslim Sharia law.
Obama's half-brother, Abongo Oba ma, is Odinga's follower.
He interrupted his New Hampshire
campaigning to speak to Odinga on the phone.
Obama's cousin Odinga in Kenya
ran for president and tried to get Sharia muslim
law in place there. When Odinga lost the elections, his followers have burned
Christians' homes and then burned men, women and children alive in a Christian
church where they took shelter.. Obama SUPPORTED his cousin before the election
process here started. Google "Obama and Odinga" and see what you get.
No one wants to know the truth.

5.) "My Grandmother Has Always Been A Christian" - NOT EXACTLY,
she does her daily Salat prayers at 5am
according to her own interviews.
Not to mention, Christianity wouldn't allow her to have been one
of 14 wives to 1 man.

6.) "My Name is African Swahili" - NOT EXACTLY,
his name is Arabic and 'Baraka' (from which Barack came) means 'blessed' in
that language. Hussein is also Arabic and so is Obama. Barack Hussein
Obama is not half black. If elected, he would be the first Arab-American
President, not the first black President. Barack Hussein Obama is
50% Caucasian from his mother's side and 43.75% Arabic and 6.25% African Negro
from his father's side. While Barack Hussein Obama's father was from Kenya
his father's family was mainly Arabs.. Barack Hussein Obama's father was only
12.5% African Negro and 87.5% Arab (his father's birth certificate even states he's
Arab,not African Negro).

making faces (check his own book).
February 28, 2008. Kristoff from the
New York Times a year ago:
'Mr.Obama recalled the opening lines of the Arabic call to prayer,reciting them
with a first-rate accent'. In a remark that seemed delightfully uncalculated
(it'll give Alabama voters heart attacks), Mr. Obama described the call to prayer
as'one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.' This is just one example of what
Pamela is talking about when she says 'Obama's narrative is being altered,enhanced
and manipulated to whitewash troubling facts.'

9.) "I Was Fluent In Indonesian" - NOT EXACTLY, not one teacher says he could
speak the language.

10.) "Because I Lived In Indonesia, I Have More Foreign Experience", NOT EXACTLY,

his bill was rejected by his own party for its pandering and lack of all regulation
- mainly because of his Nuclear donor, Exelon, from which David Axelrod came.

by a fellow Senator, to assist him in a future bid for higher office.

How many States are there Mr. Obama??

Click HERE to see how many Barrack thinks we, if Bush would have done this - no one would hear the end of it. And who wants the big O as president?

Tuesday, June 03, 2008

Who is Barack Obama?
A man is known by his record and the company he keeps. To me, he has failed on both accounts. I think once the tidal wave of "I want change" has swept over them and they really look at this man - this is what they will see of his record....

- He voted against banning partial birth abortion.
-He voted no on notifying parents of minors who get out-of-state abortions.
-Supports affirmative action in Colleges and Government.
- In 2001 he questioned harsh penalties for drug dealing.
-Says he will deal with street level drug dealing as minimum wage affair.
-Admitted marijuana and cocaine use in high school and in college.
- His religious convictions are very murky.
-He is willing to meet with Fidel Castro, Hugo Chavez, Kim Jung Il and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. (ha, ha - I say go ahead).
- Has said that one of his first goals after being elected would be to have a conference with all Muslim nations.
-Opposed the Patriot Act.
- First bill he signed that was passed was campaign finance reform.
- Voted No on prohibiting law suits against gun manufacturers.
-Supports universal health-care.
-Voted yes on providing habeas corpus for Guantanamo detainees.
-Supports granting driver's licenses to illegal immigrants.
-Supports extending welfare to illegal immigrants.
- Voted yes on comprehensive immigration reform.
- Voted yes on allowing illegal aliens to participate in Social Security.
-Wants to make the minimum wage a "living wage".
- Voted with Democratic Party 96 percent of 251 votes.
-Is a big believer in the separation of church and state.
- Opposed to any efforts to Privatize Social Security and instead supports increasing the amount of tax paid.
- He voted No on repealing the Alternative Minimum Tax.
- He voted No on repealing the "Death" Tax.
- He wants to raise the Capital Gains Tax.
- Has repeatedly said the surge in Iraq has not succeeded....
- He is ranked as the most liberal Senator in the Senate today and that takes some doing.

If your political choices are consistent with Barack Obama's and you think that his positions will bring America together or make it a better place, then you will probably not care about any of this. If you are like most Americans that after examining what he stands for, are truly not in line with his record, it would be prudent to get off the wave or better yet, never get on, before it comes on shore and undermines the very foundations of this great Country. We have limited time to save America or the Supreme Court as we know it.
