The Gaps In Obama's Life Story!

8/31/2012  Friday

If you keep up with political current events, at the level of knowing most of the minutiae, you will remember that a tempest in a teapot brewed up about three months ago when it was discovered that Obama's literary agent had promoted a biographical blurb about Obama for some years that said he was born in Kenya.

In other words, the business agents for Obama, that SOLD OBAMA'S BOOKS ABOUT HIMSELF, averred that BHO was born in Kenya!

This means that the biggest, oldest birther, claiming Obama was foreign born, was his own literary agent WHO WORKED FOR HIM!  Instructed by him???

Here is a recent piece that revisits the issue, just to remind you that you can't make this stuff up.   If you or I said the same, we'd be smeared and labelled as racists or crazo "birthers."  

But if Obama or his hired agents do the same on Obama's behalf, from 1991 to 2007, what are they?  Deluded?  Liars?  Myth makers?  Who knows?  I guess they could explain it to us, if they were talking.

To summarize, much of the biographical material on Obama is unknown, or mythographic, or phantasmagoric.  

Big, unusual words have to be used to characterize the "facts" about Obama.  That may indicate that facts about him are "big and unusual."  Maybe the facts about him are not facts at all.  And, it seems, no one has ever gotten to the bottom of Obama's background--more myth, fable and supposition, rather than any well-reported, well-documented background:  the trip to Pakistan, high school and mentoring by Frank Marshall Davis, the undergraduate and graduate college grades and theses, various sealed documents that might reveal how he characterized himself on applications at earlier ages . . . all hidden and locked away.  He's a "lucky man" that the mainstream media helps keep all this hidden by not doing any digging, file invading or bribery to get at these files, like they did with Rick Perry's college grades, for instance.

Why would we accept having a president who is a cipher . . . a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma--either when we elected him the first time or at the time of being asked to do it again?  Do you know the original riddle-mystery-enigma quote?

The Left went apoplectic over Romney’s recent joke about birth certificates — perhaps a tit-for-tat shot across Obama’s bow for the prior week’s presidential evocation of the old story of Romney’s dog on top of Romney’s car. 
But if pundits wish to be so angry at the birther joking, then they should go after the original birthers, who may have started the  myth — the literary agency Dystel & Goderich, which for over 16 years in their promo bio
 listed Obama as Kenyan-born — 1991–2007 — without any apparent complaint or questioning by those who read it. 
That fabrication was an odd thing to do for two reasons: One, authors are customarily asked to submit biographical information to their agents and publishers, and often periodically update and edit that information in catalogues, promo material, and booklets; and, two: The Kenyan-born reference disappeared
 abruptly in 2007, without any explanation, right about the time that Senator Obama began his campaign for the presidency.

Many have interpreted those strange events not as a simple “slip,” but as the lame fudging of either the agents, or the author, or both, to construct a suitably exotic birthplace for Obama that might emphasize the cross-cultural themes of his autobiography — a hypothesis strengthened by revelations that a great number of the key stories of Dreams from My Father were fictionalized, bearing little semblance to what actually happened.

chuchillA form of Winston Churchill's quotation, made in a radio broadcast in October 1939:

"I cannot forecast to you the action of Russia. It is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma; but perhaps there is a key. That key is Russian national interest."

Quote of the Day

I do not fear an Army of Lions, if they are led by a lamb.
I do fear and army of sheep, if they are lead by a lion!

The Sad Irony of the Democratic Party and their Pathetic Lies

I find sad irony in the Mia Love situation . She is a black mayor in Utah who spoke at the Republican convention Tuesday night and brought the house down. There was an immediate ugly personal backlash directed at her from segments of the left. She was called Aunt Tom and many other very ugly epithets I will not repeat. She was not really harmed, quite the opposite, as she raised a great deal of money during the hours after she spoke, but the Democratic Party was harmed. The Dems act like they OWN black Americans, and any who dare to break from the “group think,” and speak against the ideology of Democratic Party are subjected to taunts and vile attempts at discrediting reputations. Slavery is a thing of the past in the Republican party!    The irony for me with these types of attacks on prominent independent  black citizens who identify with conservative issues and the Republican Party is that they represent an ugly form of slave mentality or mafia threat.  “If you leave our plantation we will take you down!”

For me, Freedom means never being fearful of thinking for yourself or speaking your mind.

 The Republican ideology embraces the American dream of self-reliant achievement while the left espouses victimization and the thought that only with government help can you advance. This point was driven home again by the early life stories of Condoleezza Rice and New Mexico governor Susanna Martinez and Mia Love.  These women have risen to positions in government which seem unlikely to many considering where they started.  They embody the American Dream! That American Dream has always been the Hope that motivated the citizens of this country,  and  motivated even those in countries where such possibilities do not exist.

Under the leadership of President Obama that American Dream has been tarnished.  Rather than instilling pride in this country, he publically disparages America and often does this while on foreign soil.  He makes us feel incompetent, constantly sending the message that we are dependent on Government to think for us and take care of us.  While  this may be enticing to those who have drunk the Victimization koolaid, it is contrary to the American Dream which motivated those who built this great country.  Instead of encouraging success for all, he uses achievement as a wedge to stir class hatred.

Kuddos to the parents of Mia Love, Susanna Martinez, and Condoleezza  Rice for instilling that American Dream in their young daughters so they could succeed against all odds to become role models for following generations.

Vote very carefully this November!

DNC will have Islamic Prayers at its Convention, while turning away Catholic Cardinals

The Demonrats will have Islamic prayers at their convention, but they have turned away a Catholic Cardinal.  My wish:  I hope the Democrats get all the Islamic votes in America.  I hope the Republicans get the votes of all the Catholics in America.  Simple.  Nice. Deserved.

This is all nuts.  The Democrats have FUNDAMENTALLY TRANSFORMED THEMSELVES, if not having completely Fundamentally Transformed America YET.  There is no traditional America or American tradition visible anywhere in the Democratic program or guiding themes..  People can shriek and caterwaul when this truth is said out loud, but the truth it is.


The host committee for the Democratic National Convention is raising a number of eyebrows after choosing to proceed with featuring Islamic “Jumah” prayers for two hours on the Friday of its convention, though Democrats earlier denied a Catholic cardinal’s request to say a prayer at the same event.

Obama has millions of fake Twitter followers

Is there anything that is not fake about Obama?  This is the latest bit of disingenuousness from our "fake" President.

Obama has millions of fake Twitter followers

By David Jackson, USA TODAY
Updated 2d 20h ago

AP photos
President Obama's Twitter account has 18.8 million followers -- but more than half of them really don't exist, according to reports.
A new Web tool has determined that 70% of Obama's crowd includes "fake followers," The New York Timesreports in a story about how Twitter followers can be purchased.
"The practice has become so widespread that StatusPeople, a social media management company in London, released a Web tool last month called the Fake Follower Check that it says can ascertain how many fake followers you and your friends have," the Times reports.
I'm just sayin!

Obamacare and the USA's Problem Summed Up in this great Ben Stein Quote

Paradoxical Quote of The Day From Ben Stein:

"Fathom the hypocrisy of a government that requires every citizen to prove they are insured... but not everyone must prove they are a citizen."

Now add this, "Many of those who refuse, or are unable, to prove they are citizens will receive free insurance paid for by those who are forced to buy insurance because they are citizens."

To which I would like to add, the same government's Justice Department is  blocking laws in the several States that require voters to show a picture ID at the polls in order to vote, because the Justice Department claims those laws are discriminatory and therefore are unconstitutional.  

I'm just sayin, vote wisely on November 6th!

It's hard when children decide to leave!

A friend of mine told me last week that his daughter walked into the living room and said "Dad, cancel my allowance immediately, forget the college tuition, rent my room out, throw all my clothes out the window; take my TV, and my laptop.

Please take any of my jewelry to the Salvation Army or Cash Converters.

Then sell my car, take my front door key away from me and throw me out of the house.

Then disown me and never talk to me again.

And don't forget to write me out of your will and leave my share to any one that wants it."

"Holy sh!t", I replied, "she actually said that?"

Well, she didn't put it quite like that, she actually said...

"Dad, meet my new boyfriend Mohammed. We're going to work together on President Obama's reelection campaign."

Your Milton Friedman Video Motivation

Simple tool for an effective lesson on free enterprise and the virtues of capitalism.  Interesting that he uses a tool that is becoming harder and harder for our young people to recognize and use.  Of course this and some paper were the "tablets" of today.

Three little paragraphs on THE RULE OF LAW and Obama's EPA

Obama regulators have been punishing U.S. business in violation of the law and beyond what Congress intended. Tuesday's ruling proves their point and underscores how much more damaging the EPA could be without re-election restraint in a second Obama term.
The court's decision states it plainly: "Absent a claim of constitutional authority (and there is none here), executive agencies may exercise only the authority conferred by statute, and agencies may not transgress statutory limits on that authority." [THIS IS A PITHY AND SUBTLE RESTATEMENT OF THE RULE OF LAW UNDER THE U.S. CONSTITUTION:  AGENCIES CANNOT EXCEED THEIR CONGRESSIONALLY AUTHORIZED POWERS.  WHO KNEW??? (not Obama)]
The message is that regulators must follow the laws of the United States. Why do federal judges constantly have to remind EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson of this basic principle?
A version of this article appeared August 22, 2012, on page A10 in the U.S. edition of The Wall Street Journal, with the headline: EPA Smack-Down Number Six.

Your Daily Dose of Milton Friedman

Enjoy this little exchange between Milton Friedman and Thomas Sowell (a very young Thomas Sowell),  in 1980.  Notice what the liberal socialist always do when they can't win an argument with intelligence and logic, they speak louder, ramble, dissemble,  while trying to talk over the quiet, reasoned conservative.  Things have not changed much since that time, except the liberals are now represented by the Occupy crowd who for the most part shouldn't be in the same room with reasoned conservatives.

Fun Facts about Mitt Romney from Doug Giles

EXCERPT FROM "Mitt Romney Is the Worst Human Ever, Ever, Ever"

By Doug Giles     

Wow, I thought George W. Bush was the worst man ever to walk the earth. Now, according to the Leftists, it’s Mitt Romney?  . . . . 

This week, in a further attempt to hide Obama’s disastrous presidency and thereby afford BHO four more years to entrench us further in an economic maelstrom, an Obama Super PAC attempted to paint Romney as an evil rapscallion who gives old ladies cancer.
 Why don’t you sell even more loopy crap to the vacillating voting morons who’re beginning to wake up from the Obama voodoo juice you seduced them with four years ago? 
Yes, if you’re going to keep your constituents from making the savvy leap from Barack’s Marxism into more of an American free market system you’ve gotta ramp up the rhetoric, or they could officially wake up and leave your loser for Mitt.

 . . . . . .

· Romney hates cute kittens and ring-tailed lemurs.

· Romney makes dogs ride on top of airplanes. Screw the cars. Say airplanes. It’s more terrifying.

· Romney wants poor people to drink mud and breathe secondhand smoke.

· Romney enslaves orphans and makes them pull his sled during leopard seal hunts. Naked. In the dead of winter.

· Romney purposely runs over manatees when he’s boating in south Florida.

· Romney thinks you ought to keep more of the money you’ve made versus giving it to lazy government sponges.

· Romney has five sons. Who does that?

· Romney was the third man on the grassy knoll. Lee Romney Oswald.

· Romney hates apples, eggs and pie.

· Romney gave a kid spinal meningitis.

· Romney pulled the spine out of a puppy once.

· Romney’s granddad killed Abraham Lincoln.

· Romney has a third nipple.

· Romney and his wife were at OJ’s house the night Nicole and Ron Goldman were killed.  Coincidence? I don’t think so.

Some of you are asking, “What if people check to see if the aforementioned sputum is true . . . .? . . . . 

Liberals contend that there is no Voter Fraud!

As Reagan commented, "It's not that liberals don't know a lot, it's just that so much of what they know is wrong."

So lets examine two recent visible and documented examples of voter fraud for our liberal friends to comment on!  

In 2004, John Kerry edged out George W. Bush by only 150,000 votes out of 5.7 million cast. Kerry’s victory was built on an enormous margin in Philadelphia, where he won 81 percent of the vote, giving him an edge of 412,000 votes. Republicans have long suspected that voter fraud regularly occurs in Philadelphia. In the 1990s, a Philadelphia election that determined control of the state senate was thrown out by a federal judge because of massive fraud.

Last month, City Commissioner Al Schmidt, a Republican, issued a 27-page report on irregularities he found in a sample of Philadelphia precincts during this year’s primary. The report, which looked at only 1 percent of the city’s 1,687 districts, found cases of double voting, voter impersonation, and voting by non-citizens, as well as 23 people who were not registered to vote but nonetheless voted. Schmidt also found reports of people who were counted as voting in the wrong party’s primary.

“We did not set out to quantify the magnitude of voting irregularities that occurred, but rather to analyze them in detail,” his report stated. “Nevertheless, we identified hundreds of cases of voting irregularities [in select precincts] that warrant further investigation.”

 [won by a literal clown, Al Franken, by 312 votes--after eight months of re-counting and lawyering]

 There were a lot of irregularities in that race, where a blizzard of magically appearing Franken ballots [always Democrat votes] put the old notion of squeaky-clean Minnesota elections to rest forever.  But one specific data point has become inarguable, thanks to the work of authors John Fund and Hans von Spakovsky: the number of outright illegal votes cast by felons in the election far exceeds Franken’s margin of victory.

To date, 1,099 felon votes have been identified, and 177 people have actually been convicted of voting illegally, with 66 more awaiting trial.  This is all the more remarkable because a simple claim of ignorance is good enough to avoid conviction – as York puts it, “the accused can get off by claiming not to have known they did anything wrong.

But we are to believe, if we listen to the liberals, there simply is no voter fraud in America.

Straight Talking Common Sense

Obama continues to embarrass America with his insincerity!

Obama is doing a horrible job representing us..........

What an embarrassment this man is to America, and you thought based on the Integrity Free Media here in the US that the world just couldn't get enough of him.  I think the world has had enough of his inept leadership.

It is from Denmark but with English subtitles.
This is embarrassing!!!!
You will NEVER see this on American TV.

Are you happy that Food Stamps are being used for sweets, steaks, chips and non-essential foods?

Well a local business person has drawn the line and is is trouble for it!  I know that is a shock to all you who frequent here, but listen to the businesswomen who is looking out for the taxpayers!

“I don’t think American taxpayers should be footing the bill for people’s pie purchases,” said Andrea Taber, proprietor of the Ever So Humble Pie Co. in Walpole, who peddles her wares at the Braintree market on Fridays and now finds herself in the middle of the state’s raging fight over welfare benefits.

“To me it’s no different than nail salons and Lottery tickets,” Taber said. “It’s pastry, it’s dessert. My pies are great, but come on.”

But sadly local officials are in an outrage over this citizen taking this stand and she is in jeopardy of losing her ability to market her pies at the Braintree Farmers Market.  Read the story whole story here!

What a colossal joke the food stamp program has become.  Another good intentioned government program intended to help people through tough times has become a "right" with no restrictions on how the recipients spend other peoples money.

I am just sayin!
