- completely baffled; very puzzled.We knew from the beginning that Obama was not right for America but you couldn't tell that to die-hard Democrats and the racist blacks who put him in office. Non of the aforementioned will ever admit to their mistakes unless it was one of those cold days in hell but a vote for the big 'D' and the guy with a matching skin color is all the reason these people need to show up at the voting booth. While that reasoning may be understood for someone who is mentally challenged it is somewhat perplexing why normal people will allow themselves to be deceived by somone with obvious shortcomings. These shortcomngs are addressed below but just because the source is identifiable as anti-liberal few, if any, will read beyond this sentence...and that's perplexing! ~ Norman E. HoobenIt’s Opposite Day: Glenn reacts to some of Obama’s flip-flopsSource: GlennBeck.comAre the sanctions against Russia really working? Based on the answer President Obama gave a reporter, it isn’t really clear. On radio this morning, Glenn, Pat, and Stu tried to make sense of some of Obama’s recent remarks as they compare to his past positions.(Note: This video is not designed to embarass Obama voters...it simply exposes the things they have not the capacity to digest, so please don't feel offended. ~ NEH)
If video doesn't load click hereDuring a press conference on Wednesday, NBC News’ Chris Jansing asked the President a simple question: “Are sanctions [against Russia] not working?” Obama’s answer was not nearly as straightforward.OBAMA: Well, we don’t know yet whether sanctions are working. Sanctions are working as intended in putting enormous pressure and strain on the Russian economy.While Pat and Stu could not make heads or tails of the apparent doublespeak, Glenn tried to better understand the President’s reasoning.
“So here’s what he said: We don’t know if sanctions are working in the grand scheme of things, but sanctions are working as they are intended to put great pressure on,” Glenn said. “But has he capitulated yet? No, we don’t know if they are working in that way, but we know that they are working as intended to put great pressure on the economy… You don’t just put them on and then they capitulate right away. We don’t know the end result.”
Obama made another interesting comment this week during the U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit. While discussing various initiatives aimed at strengthen U.S./African relations, the President made this plea to House Republicans.
OBAMA: I would be remiss if I did not add that House Republicans can help by reauthorizing the Export-Import Bank. That is the right thing to do.While running for President in 2008, however, President Obama had a slightly different opinion of the Export-Import Bank.
OBAMA: I’m not a Democrat that believes we can or should defend every government program just because it’s there. There’s some that don’t work like we had hoped. The Bush Administration spent $1 billion a on a reading program that hasn’t improved our children’s reading. We should take that money and use it for things that work. There’s some programs that have been duplicated by other programs, that we just need to cut back, like the Economic Development Agency and the Export-Import Bank that’s become no more than a fund for corporate welfare.“So it’s a little more than a fund for corporate welfare, but the Republicans should reauthorize it back into existence because it’s the right thing to do,” Pat said. “Can you explain that opposite?”
Glenn admitted this one was a bit more difficult to explain away.
“This is really challenging,” Glenn said. “[But] because I’m now in charge and the seas are beginning to recede, I have fixed the Import-Export bank, and it is no longer corrupt, no longer corporate welfare. Now it is important because I have arrived.”
While Glenn’s response may have been a bit sarcastic, Stu believes that is probably not too far from the President’s approach.
“He was in a campaign [when he made the original statement],” Stu said. “He may have completely forgotten he was critical of the Import-Export Bank – it’s just a thing he said on that day. Now the thing to say is, ‘I need it,’ so he’s saying that. That’s not specific to Obama by any mention.”
Ultimately, Stu found the archive clip to be particularly interesting because of the light it shines on how government waste is viewed.
“It’s interesting to hear the older clips of him in that it just shines a great light on how the government works. As he is going through in 2008, he is discussing a reading program for $1 billion that he’s saying is a waste of money,” Stu concluded. “What percentage of our government would stand, if we lived on that standard? Certainly less than half – if you need a measurable results from a program that you have.”

There's a headline over at the Washington
Scola writes about what's missing data and in my opinion makes excuses for what really happened to the missing money. Here's some excerpts:
Launched in December 2007, USASpending.gov was meant as a way of tapping modern technology to hand the American public the means to track what the federal government spends. But a new report from the Government Accountability Office found that, in 2012 at least, more than $619 billion in federal awards that should be accounted for on the site weren't.
… (There are two more paragraphs here)
USASpending.gov was launched to great fanfare in 2007, the product of the Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act. "Technology makes it possible for every American to know what is happening and to hold elected officials accountable," said one of its congressional sponsors, then-Senator Barack Obama.
The Obama-Biden Plan
Barack Obama has led efforts to reform government both in the Illinois State Senate and in the United States Senate. He will bring this commitment to making government work for the people, not the special interests, to the White House. Obama will ensure Washington works for the people, not the special interests.
Shine the Light on Washington Lobbying
- Centralize Ethics and Lobbying Information for Voters: Obama and Biden will create a centralized Internet database of lobbying reports, ethics records, and campaign finance filings in a searchable, sortable and downloadable format.
- Require Independent Monitoring of Lobbying Laws and Ethics Rules: Obama and Biden will use the power of the presidency to fight for an independent watchdog agency to oversee the investigation of congressional ethics violations so that the public can be assured that ethics complaints will be investigated.
- End the Practice of Writing Legislation Behind Closed Doors: As president, Barack Obama will restore the American people's trust in their government... (Note: No sense listing all the promises because practically all of them were broken. But you can go here CHANGE.GOV to read the remaining lies.)
From the White House
Transparency and Open Government
Memorandum for the Heads of Executive Departments and Agencies
SUBJECT: Transparency and Open Government
My Administration is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness in Government. We will work together to ensure the public trust and establish a system of transparency, public participation, and collaboration. Openness will strengthen our democracy and promote efficiency and effectiveness in Government.
Government should be transparent.
Transparency promotes accountability and provides information for citizens about what their Government is doing. (Repeat above Note here.)So the United States Government is missing $619 billion dollars and nobody seems to know where it went. I can think of where some of it went and the rest of it most likely went in similar ways. Back in April of 2011, I posted the following right here on this website, "Where does Obama get his billion$ ? ...according to this report, he steals it!" In that post there's an editorial that says Obama moved $85 billion to Honduras...in his own name!
Important to note is that the entry in this report naming “Barack Hussein Obama II” does not list him as the American President, but as he is the only person in the world having this exact name one would be hard pressed to believe it could be anyone else.
Since 2009 Obama has become the leading ally and cheerleader for the right-wing coop leader Porfirio Lobo, and Hillary Clinton’s US State Department is currently campaigning for Honduras to be readmitted to the OAS. Since the 2009 coup, the US has, also, built two new military bases in Honduras and increased its training of local police.
To where Obama gained access to a fortune that has made him the richest man in the world we can glean from the special report published last week by London’s Observer newspaper wherein they detailed how one of the United States largest banks named Wachovia was discovered to have laundered over $500 Billion for Mexican and Colombian drug cartels.
President Obama has turned to his own vice president to oversee implementation of the $787 billion economic stimulus package, part of which will be available this week for state Medicaid programs.
Obama announced his decision before the National Governors Association in Washington on Monday, saying Vice President Joe Biden will help ensure the distribution of the money is not just swift, "but also efficient and effective."
"The fact that I'm asking my vice president to personally lead this effort shows how important it is for our country and future to get this right," he said.
Biden, in his new role, would meet regularly with key members of the Cabinet, governors and mayor to make sure their efforts are speedy and effective. He is expected to make regular reports to the president that will be posted online at www.recovery.gov. Source FOX News Feb 23, 2009

Quote Of The Day
"Not since the disintegration of the Soviet Union in 1991, and before that the fall of France in 1940, has there been so swift an erosion of the world influence of a Great Power as we are witnessing with the United States." ~ Conrad Black
To make clear that Islam is in fact a military movement rather than a religion, please consider that Islam does not ask one to emulate the humble, kind, peaceful, compassionate, loving Jesus but rather the arrogant, violent, brutal, lustful, savage military commander and beheading ruler Mohammed. It's all in the staging. ~ by Bernie
Our society chooses to pay for bastards and wonders why the number of bastards increases. Our society refuses to support poor families with married fathers in residence, and wonders why the number of single mothers increases. Our society pays for single motherhood, and wonders why we get it. Our society gives stipends to unemployed and/or homeless males, and wonders why we get more and more of them. — Bill Quick (More like this here)
The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the presidency. It will be easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to an electorate willing to have such a man for their president.
The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails us. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The republic can survive a Barack Obama. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.” ~ Author Unknown
The real goal of "health care" legislation, the real goal of "cap-and-trade," and the real goal of the "stimulus" is to rip the guts out of our private economy and transfer wide swaths of it over to the government to control. Do not be deluded by the propaganda. These initiatives are vehicles for change. They are not goals in and of themselves except in their ability to deliver power. They and will make matters much worse, for that is their design. ~ November 23, 2009 Cloward-Piven Government By James Simpson

Tribute to America's Veterans
"Those Honored Dead"
"Why do you fly the flag today?"
My Grandson wants to know.
I fly it for the graveyards
Where the countless crosses grow.
I fly the flag for children
Whose fathers are a name.
A half-remembered memory
of a face within a frame.
I fly it for the families
of sons and daughters lost.
They know the price of liberty
How terrible the cost!
I fly the flag for veterans
who lost their youth in blood.
And saw their comrades slaughtered
in the carnage and the mud.
I fly it for the ones who marched
In cadence off to war
To close their eyes forever
Upon some foreign shore.
I fly the flag for grief poured out
Upon a granite wall.
The laying-on of hands that heals
The scars within us all.
I fly it for the sound of Taps---
That melancholy tune
That lays to rest those honored dead
Who always die too soon.

More Proof That Clinton Is Responsible For The Crash
George had the foresight to see the Clintons, CFR, New York Times, and Obama on the horizon.
"Don't worry about genius and don't worry about not being clever. Trust rather to hard work, perseverance and determination. The best motto for a long march is ' Don't grumble. Plug on.'....Be honest. Be loyal. Be kind. Remember that the hardest thing to acquire is the faculty of being unselfish. As a quality it is one of the finest attributes of manliness." Sir Frederick Treves
"...To be clear, the Constitution of the United States of America is the United States of America. They are one and the same. Any individual or agency which seeks to subvert the Constitution and wage political and/or rhetorical war on it, are self-declared enemies of the United States of America, as they are subverting and waging war on the United States of America." - Pat Dollard
The truth to the matter is that Obama lies but he does it with such finess that the easily fooled are easily fooled. ~ Norman E. Hooben
"Going for the grandest illusion of all, [Obama] ... told the New York Times: 'We've actually been operating in a way that has been entirely consistent with free-market principles.' Excuse me while I pick my jaw off the ground. Everyone knows -- or should know -- that putting more and more of the government in charge of more and more of the economy is entirely inconsistent with free-market principles. This means that the president's statement to the contrary is what is known as a big lie." --columnist Diana West

"We are now in a great civil war of words and you have the honor of participating as a true patriot. The battle has not been won but you will be there when we are victorious. The pen is mightier than the sword and you will inscribe your name in the book of freedom…and that, my friend is an honor." (Norman E. Hooben in response to a writer who complained of not having the honor of serving in the U.S. Military)
"If you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a small chance of survival. There may even be a worse case: you may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves." - Winston Churchill
It has been said that politics is the second oldest profession. I have learned that it bears a striking resemblance to the first.
Back in the days of "The Lone Ranger" program, someone would ask, "Who is that masked man?" People need to start asking that question about Barack Obama. - Thomas Sowell

The accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in the same hands, whether of one, a few, or many, and whether hereditary, self-appointed, or elective, may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny. - James Madison, the Federalists Papers
There was a Chemistry professor in a large college that had some Exchange students in the class. One day while the class was in the lab the Prof noticed one young man (exchange student) who kept rubbing his back And stretching as if his back hurt.
The professor asked the young man what was the matter. The student told him he had a bullet lodged in his back. He had been shot while fighting communists in his native country who were trying to overthrow his country's government and install a new communist government.
In the midst of his story he looked at the professor and asked a strange question. He asked,'Do you know how to catch wild pigs?' The professor thought it was a joke and asked for the punch line. The young man said this was no joke. 'You catch wild pigs by finding a suitable place in the woods and putting corn on the ground. The pigs find it and begin to come everyday to eat the free corn. When they are used to coming every day, you put a fence down one side of the place where they are used to coming. When they get used to the fence, they begin to eat the corn again and you put up another side of the fence. They get used to that and start to eat again. You continue until you have all four sides of the fence up with a gate in the last side. The pigs, who are used to the free corn, start to come through the gate to eat, you slam the gate on them and catch the whole herd. Suddenly, the wild pigs have lost their freedom. They run around and around inside the fence, but they are caught. Soon they go back to eating the free corn. They are so used to it that they have forgotten how to forage in the woods for themselves, so they accept their captivity. The young man then told the professor that is exactly what he sees happening to America.
The government keeps pushing us toward Communism/Socialism and keeps spreading the free corn out in the form of programs such as supplemental income, tax credit for unearned income, subsidies, payments not to plant crops (CRP), welfare, medicine, drugs, etc. while we continually lose our freedoms- just a little at a time.
One should always remember 'There is no such thing as a free Lunch!' Also, 'You can never hire someone to provide a service for you cheaper than you can do it yourself.
You apparently don't share a sense of patriotism, Americanism, freedomism, or whatever kind of 'ism' that true Americans believe in... You do however, display a bit of socialism, communism, marxism or whatever kind of 'ism' that you make excuses for... ~ Norman E. Hooben (in response to an Obama supporter's views about the ACS census)
A nation that knows not from where it came, knows not where it is going! Today, Americans know too little about the foundations of our nation. The result is a nation now in chaos, its people unable to discern what is wrong with the transformation (paradigm shift) of our society and form of government that, if left unchecked, will destroy every facet of freedom, liberty and justice. The price of freedom is vigilance; the price of vigilance is knowledge. Many of America's founding documents are now available on the web. ~
