·        FEC Is Investigating Obama’s 2008 Election Fund Raising

By
Don White

Conservatives have wondered for a long time why the Federal Election Commission didn’t investigate Barak Obama’s fund raising for the 2008 presidential election. Since he didn’t take any federal money, his campaign funds weren’t, as a matter of course, investigated. But now FEC investigators are looking into possible fraud on the part of Obama and his campaign operatives.

·        Ayn Rand Wrote Some Steamy, Not Explicit, Sex Scenes

Atlas Shrugged, First Published in the U.S. In 1957 Had Conservative Views

Some folks still erroneously believe that sex is on the rise. What? We didn’t have sex scenes in great books before? Not true. The classics had sex scenes, and that includes Shakespeare and Atlas Shrugged, published 54 years ago. But in these classics they weren’t so abundant and explicit. It is true that the world is becoming more secular and sinful. While belief in God may be temporarily waning in Europe and in other places, among spiritual people—especially in the Americas— faith in God couldn’t be more intense and people more faithful. There is a prophet living on the earth today and he speaks to God and relays truth and optimism to all who will hear, especially at this Easter time. These are thoughts of the Savior, Jesus Christ, and of his atonement for the sins of mankind. The living prophet’s name is Thomas S. Monson, president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints..

When Did The Devil Get Hold Of Those Nasty Democrats
By Don White





Since Bill Clinton, we have never had a bigger liar in the White House. Parsing words has become a science to those donkey politicians. An Austrian writer, Michael Barnett, has written in The  Libertarian Standard “Parsing Political Language: Is Obama An Inveterate Liar?”

Eat your heart out, Derrida.

Libertarians will tell you that Obama made a firm pledge not to raise taxes on any family making less
thank $250,000. Thanks to the Libertarian Standard for the video above. “Parsing Political Language: Is
Obama An Inveterate Liar?” 


Barnett claims he’s an Austrian School economist, anarchist, libertarian, father, expatriate living in Sicily,
and director of Global Exports S.R.L, which is another term for saying he makes a little money importing
fine linen from China, jewelry from India, and commodities from all over the world. Beware, true to his
charlatan instincts, he exonerates both Clinton and Obama in typical anarchist language.

Something really bothers me. Republicans and Democrats compete for office on different levels, uneven playing fields. Most Republicans—this is not true with all GOPs—most often tell the truth in their speeches, press releases, and other utterances. Most are square shooters. Barak Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi,  Barny “Fife” Frank (the marijuana grower from Boston) and all the other rabble-rouser politicians on the
 dark side of D.C. can’t tell a lie from a Bible scripture.


Somewhere, somehow the devil got hold of those nasty Democrats. They have taken a cue and a clue from Barak Obama, the greatest liar-prevaricator of them all in posturing, creating a sham, and failing to tell the truth. He always has the next BIG LIE in mind before saying or doing anything. I’m sure privately he jokes about his success with cronies at being the invisible man. “No man knows my history; I’m here today, gone tomorrow; say one thing and mean another; Master Mayhem, child of the devil. Figure me out if you can. No one has succeeded yet. No one will.”

The big lie for Barak Obama and other libs is whatever they want it to be. Take Obama. A while back he was praising Mitt Romney and his Massachusetts health care. He said Romney was the most competent man in the country on health care. We all know he didn’t mean it. But what did he mean?

Obama’s intent and what he said do not jive. He always has an ulterior motive. He wanted to point out to the country  Romney’s biggest negative. But how could health care be a negative for Mitt and not for Barak? Why would he do this? Notice, he praises another person on his soft spots, just to point out to conservatives that maybe Romney isn’t the man that should win your primary. Secretly, he’s saying to himself that Romney would be a heck-of-a presidential candidate and I don’t want to oppose him in November 2012. Another interpretation could be that Obama wants to take off the debate table his own horrendous Obamacare. If that is true, then Mitt wouldn’t be the best candidate. Maybe we need a Chris Christie or a Donald Trump who may have less political baggage.

Barak Obama is devious. You have to read him right. Make no quick judgments. He’s what I call “a walking PR twister.” In Book of Mormon and ancient Biblical times, God said the wicked “wrested” the scriptures. That means they changed scriptural meaning. It’s a wicked and perverse generation who lie and cheat and have no respect for their fellow man.

Where did Obama get his traditions and customs? Not from his father. He didn’t live with him long enough. From his communist mother, Ann Dunham? From Frank Marshall Davis, a big-time communist leader in Hawaii who used to visit Dunham when they lived there? From Mr. Satoro, his step-dad in Indonesia? Hard to say. Maybe he’s a composite of all of those people.

The Forgotten Man – Painting by Jon McNaughton


Past Presidents (including more recent Republican ones) try to raise the plight of the common American, while recent Presidents (Democrat ones) applaud Obama’s brand of ‘transformative change’.
The wretched condition of the ordinary American under Obama as depicted above? True:
In religious families, traditions are taught by fathers and mothers to young children early on

In an article, “Traditions of Their Fathers” by James Duke he said, “Traditions or norms are handed down from generation to generation and are taught to children by their parents, their teachers, their companions, and others with whom they come in contact. Every society places great emphasis on the importance of teaching children the rules of conduct and the standards of behavior of that society.”
Social scientists report that  the traditions of a society are “the major means by which (a) order is achieved and (b) an organized way of life is passed down from one generation to the next. The way of life of every society tends to be consistent from generation to generation—even if rapid social change is taking place—because traditions tend to resist change. If traditions do change, they usually change slowly.”
How have Democrat politics degenerated so drastically the past two hundred years?
It’s the increase in lies. Here are some of Barak Obama’s lies:
1)      The United States is a Muslim nation.
2)      Collective bargaining is a right of every worker.
3)      I will close down Gitmo.
4)      I will end the wars and bring the boys home. He has already started another war.
5)      That he wasn’t listening for 20 years when he sat in Rev. Jeramiah Wright’s Trinity Church and heard him say “God Dam America.”
6)      On Wednesday he will propose a value added tax for everyone. He pledged in the campaign not to raise taxes on anyone making less than $250,000 a year.
7)      He promised in a spending deal with Congress two months ago that he would not increase taxes on the “rich.”
8)      That the troops mean a lot to him….and on and on. In all honesty he doesn’t give a crap about the troops. If they did, he would keep his other promise about ending the wars.
   I could go on all day. His every utterance is a lie that he doesn’t intend to keep. He grew up knowing that people lie to each other every day. When he sent in that application for a scholarship at Harvard it said he was a foreign student. That was the basis on which the scholarship was granted. If he was a foreigner then, how and when did he become an American citizen? He won’t say, he won’t produce a valid birth certificate. At every turn of this one is a lie. Which one is it, Barak?
Since Bill Clinton, we have never had a bigger liar in the White House. Parsing words has become a science to those donkey politicians. An Austrian writer, Michael Barnett, has written in The Libertarian Standard “Parsing Political Language: Is Obama An Inveterate Liar?” Barnett claims he’s an Austrian School economist, anarchist, libertarian, father, expatriate living in Sicily, and director of Global Exports S.R.L, which is another term for saying he makes a little money importing fine linen from China, jewelry from India, and commodities from all over the world. Beware, true to his charlatan instincts, he exonerates both Clinton and Obama in typical anarchist language.
Watch his every statement Wednesdayafternoon as he speaks at George Washington University about his new plan to cut the deficit. He was forced into doing this because Congressman Paul Ryan has already embarrassed him with his group’s proposal to cut the deficit by five trillion dollars in ten years. If Obama says something, think what he really means. Nine times out of ten, he will say just the opposite to what he really intends to do or what he means. He is that corrupt—someone whom we call an inveterate or habitual liar. “The devil made me lie and I can’t help himself” should be his response if someone asked him about his shoddy record of failing to tell the truth.
Breaking News: I heard some of Obama’s speech today. Rush Limbaugh, who heard all of it, says he lambasted Representative Ryan’s deficit-cutting plan for 45 minutes and for five minutes talked about a possible Democrat plan. But he didn’t present a Democrat plan. He wasn’t prepared to propose anything specific except make suggestions of more of the same old Democrat large government sing-song. He will not be able to raise taxes as he wants–that is if Republicans in Congress stand united against such tax increases. This should be about spending reductions, not more taxes.

Three questions to Marwan Bishara

By Marwan Bishara in Imperium on December 16th, 2010

Al Jazeera’s senior political analyst comments on the US administration’s
review of its military strategy in Afghanistan.
Why a review of the military strategy in Afghanistan?
Releasing the review is an exercise in public diplomacy; it marks the
first year anniversary of President Barack Obama’s speech last year
that laid out his surge strategy to avoid losing the war in Afghanistan.
During long and difficult deliberation with his national security team in
2009, the president was sceptical of the generals and hardliners’
argument for surge of troops without clear benchmarks and for a major
escalation without exist strategy, according to Bob Woodward inside
account of the White House meetings in Obama’s Wars. Today, his
administration is offering what is deemed balance sheet that shows
“progress” but also difficult challenges ahead.

US wars: People vs 

Generals

By Marwan Bishara in Imperium on August 25th, 2010

While the Obama administration continues to affirm its intention
to withdraw US troops from Iraq and Afghanistan, the US’ military
presence in the Muslim world is actually expanding and this is
exacerbating tensions and inflaming animosities.
 
























Barack Obama’s promise to open a new page with the Muslim 

world on the basis of mutual respect and interests – supplemented
and enforced by the use of soft rather than hard power – now rings hollow.

This is most evident in the withdrawal of combat troops from Iraq

and the corresponding surge in Afghanistan – an exercise in
redeploying military forces, not extracting them.

As the gap between words and deeds; declarations and policies;

public diplomacy and military strategy deepens, so the political and
strategic crisis facing the Obama administration continues to deepen.

Enduring presence

There are now more than 140,000 foreign troops in Afghanista

Western wars vs. Muslim women

By Marwan Bishara in Imperium on August 5th, 2010
Western media is awash with reports about Taliban
mistreatment of women in Afghanistan and Pakistan
that feature countless voices in support of the war to



























secure a ‘brighter future for women’s rights’. 
If Western wars ‘liberate’ Eastern women, 
Muslim women
would be – after centuries of Western 
military interventions –
the most ‘liberated’ in the world. 
They are not, and will not be,
especially when liberty is associated with Western hegemony.

Afghanistan has had its share of British, Russian and American

military intervention to no avail.

Wars, lies and lyrics

By Marwan Bishara in Imperium on August 4th, 2010
























Photo by EPA

Surprise, surprise … the US government did not tell the whole truth,

yet again, about its war conduct, and indeed misled the public
about the true record of the war.

I personally have not met anyone who has been shocked by the

revelations in the documents published by WikiLeaks, but many
are surprised – not so much by the novelty of it all, but rather by
the mundane repetition of more of the same deception. 

It is déjà vu all over again. Governments lie, especially about

war and violence.

Is Israel a liability for the US?

By Marwan Bishara in Imperium on July 28th, 2010
























Last week, the Nixon Center sponsored a debate between pro-Israeli

Washington Institute executive director Robert Satloff and Chas Freeman, a
former US ambassador to Saudi Arabia and an opponent of unconditional US
support to Israel. The subject was whether Israel is an asset or liability to

US strategic interests.

>Obama Declares War On Libya: Under The Cover of The United Nations, Obama Vows to Depose Kaddaafi by Setting Up A Libyan No-Fly Zone

>By Don White
I wrote all week about how smart Obama was in refusing to set up the no-fly zone over Libya. Boy was I wrong about this president. Breaking news is that the U.N. Security Council has approved a no-fly zone. I bussined myself sending my congrats about Obama’s wisdom in shunning this fight in which we have no dog in the fight to big-time newspapers, the  NY Times, Wall Street Journal, San Jose Herald, Chicago Tribune, Boston Herald, Hartford Courier and more. They all snubbed their nose at me and my message, “Obama Is Right” about not setting up a Libyan no-fly zone.

We watched Obama set up his Final Four Basketball selections, return from two successive weekends of vacations, at the expense of the United States. All of this apparent lack of interest in trying to do something about the slaughter of the Libyan freedom fighters. Now he announced tonight at 5 p.m. that with United Nations blessings the U.S. would set up a no-fly zone over Libya.

Apparently, he feels more strongly about killing Libyans loyal to Colonel Kaddafi – and  hopefully stopping the deaths of the freedom fighters that he egged on for the past month in the streets of Tripoli–than exposing our military men to harms way and spending millions or maybe billions of dollars activating our assets in that area..

In so doing, he has committed all of the power of the greatest air force and navy in the world. This will require some ground forces and some Americans will be killed. But Obama looks at this as a way he can prove that he, indeed, is a great commander in chief. But let no one mistake this. The risks are not a few. What happens if Iran decides it likes Kaddahi better than it likes the U.S. in Libya? Well, Obama would be able then to bomb Iran and start World War Three. And who knows how long the League of Arab nations will stand by their desire to oust Kaddahi. Would they like to exchange his tyranny for U.S. occupation of that country?

If we fail to occupy that country, anything could happen. Iran could come in and fill the void. Bush made a mistake in taking out Sadam Hussein because he was the buffer zone against an ever expanding Iranian voice in that area. Now if Iran, somehow, gets into the fray and we withdraw, it could bode poorly for Obama. If he chooses to occupy this country or set up a weak Libyan leadership, all hell could break loose. We’ll try to keep you posted.
____________________________________________________

Ladies and Gentlemen:
I have written a 689-word Op-Ed, “Obama Is Right On Libya.” The no-fly-zone debate is fueled by advocates left and right like humanitarian-atheist Christopher Hitchens.
He wants Obama to unilaterally create a no-fly zone over Kadhafi’s North African dictatorship to prevent the dictator from slaughtering the freedom fighters that 0bama encouraged. Kadhafi seems to be winning the war, but is Obama right in appearing so aloof from a conflict that he may view as more of a quagmire than Viet Nam? If he’s right, he could chalk up world leadership points. If wrong, he opens himself up to questions about his leadership skills – questions Americans are already asking. My article says Obama is right.
This is a highly charged debate and Obama knows it. It deserves the benefit of as much interpretive analysis as possible. The last no-fly zone went on for ten years in Kosovo and cost us $4 billion. I served in U.S. military intelligence, but don’t pretend to have all the answers, but neither do any of the generals, pundits, or presidents and that’s because it looks like a political decision, but it’s more than that.
The article studies the ethos of Barak Obama and how it plays a big part in his decision, and the predicament in which he finds himself. A misstep here could cost him an election just 18 months away. Understandably, he is taking a cautious no-blame approach, unless others organize it. My view is America should stay home even if the U.N. organizes it. Get someone else to police the world. We’ve run out of money, or hasn’t anyone noticed?
   For Obama, it wouldn’t look good if this civil war lasted through the election. He’s already paying a price for this cautious strategy in negative PR. There other things Obama must consider as well.
I am a published writer, having been a newsman for the AP, edited three magazines, authored three novels, lived in Europe for 30 months, and authored a non-fiction book, Selling Fast, an Amazon e-book. I hold degrees in journalism, law, and insurance. I am the former president/CEO of Western National Mutual Insurance Group in Minneapolis.

Obama Is Right On Libya?
  
By

 

                                             Don White

                                             689 words
     
Obama is right.
   A HotAir.com article leads with “Hitchens Rips Obama On Libya.” He called for the United States to enter the Libyan war. Now is the time to act, not after Gadhafi wins and shoots his political enemies, he suggested.
   Hitchens said it was immoral for the most powerful country in the world to do nothing about the slaughter of revolutionists. I disagree.
   With NATO backing, the U.S. bombed Kosovo; but that looked like a $4 billion snafu until Slobodan Milosevic and his oligarchy were finally toppled by popular ballot box dissent. Conservatives and liberals alike ask, “Why not Libya?”
   Obama is right. America lacks a dog in this fight. Our oil doesn’t come from Libya. Besides, Obama has repudiated Bush’s nation building ethos—installing American democracy everywhere we go.  Two-thirds of Americans say “Abandon Afghanistan.” Only military-industrialists who stand to gain want ten more years. Even then, victory can never be clearcut.
   Hot Air.com said, “The Obama administration also behaves as if the weight of the United States in world affairs is approximately the same as that of Switzerland. We await developments. We urge caution, even restraint. We hope for the formation of an international consensus. And, just as there is something despicable about the way in which Swiss bankers change horses, so there is something contemptible about the way in which Washington has been affecting and perhaps helping to bring about American impotence. Except that, whereas at least the Swiss have the excuse of cynicism, American policy manages to be both cynical and naive…”
   Hitchens said Christians have killed more than any other people. He uses that dubious claim to support his antipathy against God and Jesus Christ. Atheists buy his God Is Not Great books and attend his lectures and debates in droves. When he speaks, they listen; but America is a Christian nation and its president is a self-proclaimed Christian. That doesn’t prove Obama believes in Jesus more than in Mohammad. Nor does identification with the predominant American religion mean that he lives Christ-centered principles. Christianity doesn’t inform his ethics, politics does.
   If America continues to sit out Libya, it doesn’t mean Christians are not as moral as atheists, or that Obama hates war and the slaughter of human beings any less than Hitchens. What happened after ten years of fighting in Yugoslavia may not be possible in a Muslim state unfamiliar with democracy.
   There were neighbor role models, sanctions and international help for Kosovo. The history of Libya discourages any such intervention. Chances for failure are so great. Certainly the dark influence of Iran, which doesn’t consider itself an Arab country,
is only an intermediate
range missile away. All this bode poorly for Middle Eastern cooperation with NATO and traditional Allied countries. Any American action must be taken with extreme caution. Libya and Iran are sitting time bombs waiting to go off.
   But if ever there were a chance for America to clasp hands with Iran again in an effort to bring peace and stability to the region, it is now. But Muslims drive hard bargains. The history of Serbia, for example, is one of Muslims conquering and humiliating Jews and Christians by “giving” non-Muslims their lives—a form of “ethnic cleansing”—-for heavy taxes.  Jews had to forfeit ownership of their lands and were forced to defer to Muslims on the street and in business dealings.
   On Monday a unified Arab League called upon the U.N. to set up a no-fly zone. That should be encouraging for a president who has been telling the world that Libya isn’t Kosovo—that America is already overly preoccupied in Afghanistan.
   He would be unwise to wage another costly war. Failure is the last thing Obama and America need right now.

   My blog, http://WarTalk.blogspot.com urges Americans to “Bring Our Boys Home”, not to send out more national treasure to another senseless war of killing, maiming, and condemning our boys to TSS and useless street lives. Let’s solve our own problems. One in four American veterans are homeless and unemployed. Tens of thousands of vets live in poverty and 120 commit suicide every week. (2005 CBS News Poll)

Thanks for coming. Please leave a comment. Your opinion is as valuable as mine or anyone’s. Let’s create an active dialog. Let’s stand up for what we want, what we think and believe America should be like. Fight for your rights – and I don’t mean take to the street with guns. Do your fighting with the pen and conversation – friendly persuasion. Remember, we’re Americans living in the greatest nation on earth. Act like it. Don White

>Obama Wants More Teacher Union Members, Not Better Student Scores

>

Diminishing Diminishing Returns

In late September, President Obama announced a goal. Noting that American students average out in the middle of the pack, vis-à-vis students worldwide, in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), he pledged to recruit 10,000 STEM teachers over the next two years.
This was put in proper context by Andrew J. Coulson, on a Cato website. He displayed two graphs. One compared employment rates versus enrollment rates in public schools. The enrollment rates have slightly risen since 1970, while the employment rate hasskyrocketed. In the other graph, the inflation-adjusted cost of a K-12 education contrasts with achievement scores for reading, math, and science during the same period. The costs skyrocketed, while the test scores had barely moved.
Perhaps students should be encouraged to apply a little math to this.
From economics we have the concept of diminishing returns. For each expenditure of input, smaller increases are expected of output. So, if we’ve been increasing teachers and administrators during this period, but the scores have neither diminished nor increased, this suggests a number of things, chief being that, well, expenditure of funds on public schooling is not the chief variable in improving knowledge or achievement. Not now, anyway.
So why would we increase expenditures?
Could the expected returns be political rather than academic? Could President Obama care more about teacher union support, say, than what kids actually learn?
Far be it for me to suggest this. Let the data alone do that.
This is Common Sense. I’m Paul Jacob.

>Narcolepsy Caused By Swine Flu Drugs

>

olepsy?1

Narcolepsy is a sleep disorder involving the brain. Narcolepsy occurs when the brain cannot normally regulate cycles of sleep and waking. This can cause daytime excessive sleepiness (ES) that results in episodes of falling asleep suddenly.2
It is estimated that narcolepsy affects 1 in every 2000 Americans.2

What causes narcolepsy?

The cause of narcolepsy is not known. Sometimes the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks the brain cells involved in regulating the sleep-wake cycle. It is believed that narcolepsy is the result of these cells being damaged or destroyed.2

Why is narcolepsy a problem?

Because the daytime sleep episodes associated with narcolepsy can occur at any time during the day, narcolepsy is very disabling and has a profound effect on the social and work lives of people with the disorder.1
  • Narcolepsy can threaten safety, as patients may fall asleep while performing various activities
  • People with narcolepsy often fall asleep several times a day, while at work or school, or even during a conversation or meal
Talk to your doctor about whether you should avoid driving or using heavy machinery while taking NUVIGIL® (armodafinil) Tablets [C-IV].
While NUVIGIL is used to improve wakefulness in patients with narcolepsy, it is not used to treat narcolepsy itself or its other symptoms or consequences.
More than 450,000 prescriptions for NUVIGIL have been filled since 2009 [ref:3]
