Some years ago, and after serving several years on the local County Board of Elections, one fact balanced the challenge. When using paper ballots and counting the ballot with a “scanner”, it is imperative to let the scanner only, work as designed to do, and count the votes.
When individuals try to count paper ballots which are designed to be counted for a scanner, personal choice begin to enter into the decision making conclusion(s), trying to justify their choice to get into the brain of the voter(s).
For example, when a proposed voter makes an X over an area which is to be covered if counted, the person(s) counting the vote for or against the candidate making the decision is making a determination as to whether the proposed voter wanted to vote for an individual, or did the voter want to vote against the candidate. Allow the scanners to do the job they are designed to do. Scanners are not political partisan. The scanner machines don’t care whether the vote is for a Democrat, a Republican, or an Independent. Persons making the determination for or against a candidate usually care, as to who gets the vote.
Each and every voter has a right to cast their ballot correctly, and/or ask for the assistance of their choice, and to make sure their voting ballot is properly marked and counted. Individuals should not be trying to make a determination of any ballots votes, when the ballot is improperly marked.

'Smears' About Obama Largely True
Monday, October 20, 2008 9:32 PMBy: Lowell Ponte
The Obama campaign says its candidate is a victim of “smears” — and has even created a Web site to fight such attacks.
But a Newsmax investigation finds many of the so-called smears are largely based in truth — and the Obama campaign uses half-truths, clever language, and ad hominem attacks to spin the facts.
Obama’s www.FightTheSmears.com focuses mainly on anti-Obama messages being repeated on the Internet and talk radio, the only media where Obama's ideological allies are not dominant.
These "smears" and the Obama rebuttals are often framed in lawyerly language that leaves much wiggle room in the candidate’s answers.
FightTheSmears.com also makes no attempt at objectivity, describing Obama’s critics as “pushing misleading research and distorted claims” because they are “ideologues” busy “spreading a ‘pack of lies’ about Barack.”

Biden Confirms that Obama Too Inexperienced
“When Crisis Hits Obama Wouldn't Have Right Response” - Sen. Joe Biden
Terrorists attack the US and two planes just crashed into the World Trade Center. Another crashed into the Pentagon and a fourth plan is still in the air heading toward the White House. Americans look to the White House for Security, protection and decisive action during the crisis.
Obama what will you do, what will you do?
Where is Obama?
With no experience and just two years as a Senator he is out back in the rose garden smoking a cigarette. “The pressure of the crisis has raised his stress levels to the point where he really needs to take a drag.” says Assistant Press Secretary Simon Theodore who continued "Barack really tried to quit"
Obama not being able to make a decision will force an irresponsible Biden to step in to assure the nation that everything is OK by saying that you ”have to stand with them, because it wouldn't be apparent Sen. Obama would have the right response”.
Obama's economic advisor a 'big gov't' proponent
Jim Brown - OneNewsNow - 10/21/2008 6:00:00 AM
A conservative author says one of Barack Obama's most trusted economic advisers holds internationalist views that threaten American sovereignty.
During their final presidential debate, Barack Obama rejected John McCain's claim that the Illinois senator's associations with former domestic terrorist Bill Ayers and the liberal group ACORN are troubling. Obama noted that, on economic policy, he associates with Warren Buffett and former Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volcker. Buffet and Volcker are among the advisers that Obama says "have shaped [his] ideas and who will be surrounding [him] in the White House."
Tom Kilgannon, president of Freedom Alliance, says Volcker supports the idea of an international regulatory body overseeing America's capitalist economic system. "Paul Volcker, I think, brings a great desire to add more regulation, both domestically and internationally," Kilgannon explains. "He comes from the big government wing, and that's how he would approach issues like this -- get the government more involved."
Volcker, according to Kilgannon, was not aggressive enough in his investigation of the United Nations "Oil for Food" scandal in 2004. Volcker was appointed by former U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan to lead the probe of the scandal, which occurred under Annan's watch. According to Kilgannon, the appointment was a conflict of interest.
"When the final report came out, issued by Volcker about the Oil for Food scandal, he pulled his punches on the Secretary General and the Secretary General's son Kojo Annan, who was also involved in the scandal," he says.
Kilgannon believes, since Volcker is tied in with the United Nations and the international finance community, his role in a future Obama administration would be troubling.

I told you that Senator Chris Dodd and other liberals not only looked the other way as Fannie Mae changed the rules to push subprime mortgages, but they took thousands in campaign cash.
I pointed out that the person who took the second highest amount of cash was Senator Barack Obama, and in turn he used Fannie insiders to pick his VP nominee.
Now we learn they had an accomplice.
Worse, ACORN – a left wing activist group – not only aided the push for subprime loans, they extorted millions from the very mortgage companies they targeted in the process.
Even worse, ACORN has misused taxpayer money, mixed it with politics and now we are seeing the results.
THAT IS WHY ACU IS CALLING FOR AN EXPANDED FBI INVESTIGATION INTO ACORN, SENATORS OBAMA AND DODD AND THEIR ROLES WITH ACORN. We need your support on this project. We need you to sign the PETITION HERE.
The results are being seen in ACORN’s new front page story: the story of how ACORN Is promoting voter fraud.
ACU has created a new 2 minute video that spells out these facts for the American people. We want people to know the truth. Our Video is on our petition page and on the national video channel YouTube. If you would like to view this 2 minute video it is on a separate page with a link to our PETITION HERE.
Year after year we open our newspapers to read about efforts from the United States to send delegations to monitor elections for fairness in third world countries. But who is going to monitor ours?
ACORN and its various subsidiaries have earned millions from pork earmarks from Dodd and people like House liberal Rep. Barney Frank. Studies have proven that this money has been mixed into their political efforts to promote left-wing ballot initiatives and now apparently to push voter fraud.
THAT IS WHY ACU IS CALLING FOR AN EXPANDED FBI INVESTIGATION INTO ACORN, SENATORS OBAMA AND DODD AND THEIR ROLES WITH ACORN. We need your support on this project. We need you to sign the PETITION HERE.
Our video on our separate video page points out what they might be up to.
Who used to work for ACORN? Senator Barack Obama.
Obama not only did legal work for ACORN but his campaign gave ACORN more than $800,000 this year. Now ACORN is being investigated in multiple states for illegally registering non-voters. The FBI has launched an initial investigation. ACORN offices have been raided.
We all remember how close our nation’s electoral contest was in Florida in 2000. Now, ACORN is attempting to stuff ballot boxes with thousands upon thousands of fraudulent votes. We must reach and out and try to stop them.
THAT IS WHY ACU IS CALLING FOR AN EXPANDED FBI INVESTIGATION INTO ACORN, SENATORS OBAMA AND DODD AND THEIR ROLES WITH ACORN. We need your support on this project. We need you to sign the PETITION HERE.
While taking taxpayer money for its ACORN H.C., and while claiming it is not involved in Voter Fraud, ACORN’s website points out what they are really all about.
ACORN’s website says, quote: “Incident Highlights Republican Suppression Scheme , Bogus "Voter Fraud Charges" Aim to Camouflage Voter Suppression, and Don't Let The Right-Wing Noise Machine Get Away With It.
"My question to you is: are we going to let ACORN get away with voter fraud, promoting economic collapse and efforts to steal an election contest? Will you let them get away with it?
ACU IS CALLING FOR AN EXPANDED FBI INVESTIGATION INTO ACORN, SENATORS OBAMA AND DODD AND THEIR ROLES WITH ACORN. We need your support on this project. We need you to sign the PETITION and support this effort now, HERE.
If you want, take a couple minutes to view ACU’s new ACORN video here. But, whether you do or not, please join ACU’s call for an expanded FBI investigation through our petition here.
We need your help with this important effort. Please forward this email to your family and friends. We need to spread the truth. We need to push an further investigation.
THAT IS WHY ACU IS CALLING FOR AN EXPANDED FBI INVESTIGATION INTO ACORN, SENATORS OBAMA AND DODD AND THEIR ROLES WITH ACORN. We need your support on this project. We need you to sign the PETITION HERE.

What’s on Bill Ayers’ door
By Michelle Malkin • October 15, 2008 11:13 AM
Guess his Mao poster and Obama signs are hanging in the bedroom. Via Chicago Trib:
Ayers’ office door is decorated with pictures of Mumia Abu-Jamal, Che Guevara and Malcolm X. It is also home to pictures of children, bills of rights for students and parents, and a rainbow-hued greeting card advising “How to Be Really Alive.” A place of prominence is give to a New Yorker cartoon of a man interviewing for a job. The interviewer says, “I’m trying to find a way to balance your strengths against your felonies.”
“Rehabilitated” my foot.
In related Ayers’ news, read this e-mail from an education major at Marist College. I imagine Ayers’ book is standard fare for legions of teachers-in-training:
I thought you would be interested to know that Marist College has a gradute course for education majors opening with William Ayers’ book “To Teach”. I am one of four students in the seminar and the professor last week made some disparaging remarks that the news media was portraying him as a terrorist. She tried to explain the “times” of the sixties as being radical and what Ayers did was not too uncommon during the civil rights campaign, and how he was a friend of Stokley Carmichael. When I asked how we could take the book, which is well written in it’s prose but very anti-system/anti-traditional with clear overtones that stigmatizes education in America as being designed for white suburbia, as being credible - she went into a convoluted answer that berated the right wing media.
Nevertheless, I didn’t press the issue too much as I have not been brainwashed by the main steam media into believing Obama’s relationship with Ayers is no big deal - but I do find her choice of books to be an unnecessary indoctrination on education majors who will be teaching future generations of young people. There are, without question, plenty of other well written books by credible authors that can easily replace Ayers’ book and I believe this is something Marist College should not condone as it sends a biased message from an author who committed violent crimes and doesn’t see America as a good place. How, therefore, can one take his viewpoint on how teachers should ‘teach’ children as being feasible?
Maybe this would be something you want to look into as to why the book is used for the course.
More schools to avoid: UNC-Chapel Hill. They heart The Unrepentant Terrorist.
Bill Ayers, the radical militant-turned-university professor whose ties to Democratic Presidential candidate Barack Obama are under scrutiny, is getting some support from faculty members across the country.
Professors from UNC-Chapel Hill are among the more than 3,200 educators who have signed an online petition in support of Ayers. More than a dozen signatories are from local universities here in the Triangle.
Lawrence Grossberg, a UNC communications studies professor, said he signed the petition because he believes Ayers should not be demonized for his actions 40 years ago. He said he also respects the work Ayers does now as an education professor at the University of Illinois-Chicago. Ayers is a school reform advocate who has written or edited more than a dozen books.
“He did break the law, and he was punished and he moved on,” Grossberg said. “He built an extraordinary life. He has become one of the leading scholars in the field of education. [People are] excoriating him for things he did 40 years ago and misrepresenting what he has done since, in order to make someone else suffer. That doesn’t seem very American to me.”
He wasn’t punished. And he hasn’t moved on.

Why I Can't Vote For Obama
By Huntley Brown
A few months ago I was asked for my perspective on Obama, I sent out an email with a few points. With the election just around the corner I decided to complete my perspective. Those of you on my e-list have seen some of this before but it's worth repeating...
First I must say whoever wins the election will have my prayer support. Obama needs to be commended for his accomplishments but I need to explain why I will not be voting for him.
Many of my friends process their identity through their blackness. I process my identity through Christ. Being a Christian (a Christ follower) means He leads I follow. I can't dictate the terms He does because He is the leader.
I can't vote black because I am black; I have to vote Christian because that's who I am. Christian first, black second. Neither should anyone from the other ethnic groups vote because of ethnicity. 200 years from now I won't be asked if I was black or white. I will be asked if I knew Jesus and accepted Him as Lord and Savior.
In an election there are many issues to consider but when a society gets abortion, same-sex marriage, embryonic stem-cell research, human cloning to name a few, wrong economic concerns will soon not matter.
We need to follow Martin Luther King's words, don't judge someone by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. I don't know Obama so all I can go off is his voting record. His voting record earned him the title of the most liberal senator in the US Senate in 2007.
NATIONAL JOURNAL: Obama: Most Liberal Senator in 2007 (01/31/2008)
To beat Ted Kennedy and Hillary Clinton as the most liberal senator, takes some doing. Obama accomplished this feat in 2 short years. I wonder what would happen to America if he had four years to work with.
There is a reason Planned Parenthood gives him a 100 % rating. There is a reason the homosexual community supports him. There is a reason Ahmadinejad, Chavez, Castro, Hamas etc. love him. There is a reason he said he would nominate liberal judges to the Supreme Court.
There is a reason he voted against the infanticide bill. There is a reason he voted No on the constitutional ban of same-sex marriage. There is a reason he voted No on banning partial birth abortion. There is a reason he voted No on confirming Justices Roberts and Alito. These two judges are conservatives and they have since overturned partial birth abortion. The same practice Obama wanted to continue.
Let's take a look at the practice he wanted to continue
The 5 Step Partial Birth Abortion procedures:
A. Guided by ultrasound, the abortionist grabs the baby's leg with forceps. (Remember this is a live baby)
B. The baby's leg is pulled out into the birth canal.
C. The abortionist delivers the baby's entire body, except for the head.
D. The abortionist jams scissors into the baby's skull. The scissors are then opened to enlarge the hole.
E. The scissors are removed and a suction catheter is inserted. The child's brains are sucked out, causing the skull to collapse. The dead baby is then removed.
God help him. There is a reason Obama opposed the parental notification law.
Think about this: You can't give a kid an aspirin without parental notification but that same kid can have an abortion without parental notification. This is insane.
There is a reason he went to Jeremiah Wright's church for 20 years.
Obama tells us he has good judgment but he sat under Jeremiah Wright teaching for 20 years. Now he is condemning Wright's sermons. I wonder why now?
Obama said Jeremiah Wright led him to the Lord and discipled him. A disciple is one in training. Jesus told us in Matthew 28:19 - 20 'Go and make disciples of all nations.' This means reproduce yourself. Teach people to think like you, walk like you; talk like you believe what you believe etc. The question I have is what did Jeremiah Wright teach him?
Would you support a White President who went to a church which has tenets that said they have
1. Commitment to the White Community
2. Commitment to the White Family
3. Adherence to the White Work Ethic
4. Pledge to make the fruits of all developing and acquired skills available to the White Community.
5. Pledge to Allocate Regularly, a Portion of Personal Resources for Strengthening and Supporting White Institutions
6. Pledge allegiance to all White leadership who espouse and embrace the White Value System
7. Personal commitment to embracement of the White Value System.
Would you support a President who went to a church like that?
Just change the word from white to black and you have the tenets of Obama's former church. If President Bush was a member of a church like this, he would be called a racist. Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton would have been marching outside.
This kind of church is a racist church. Obama did not wake up after 20 years and just discovered he went to a racist church. The church can't be about race. Jesus did not come for any particular race. He came for the whole world.
A church can't have a value system based on race. The churches value system has to be based on biblical mandate. It does not matter if itʼs a white church or a black church it's still wrong. Anyone from either race that attends a church like this would never get my vote.
Obama's former Pastor Jeremiah Wright is a disciple of liberal theologian James Cone, author of the 1970 book A Black Theology of Liberation. Cone once wrote: 'Black theology refuses to accept a God who is not identified totally with the goals of the black community. If God is not for us and against white people, then he is a murderer, and we had better kill him.
Cone is the man Obama's mentor looks up to. Does Obama believe this?
So what does all this mean for the nation?
In the past when the Lord brought someone with the beliefs of Obama to lead a nation it meant one thing - judgment.
Read 1 Samuel 8 when Israel asked for a king. First God says in 1 Samuel 1:9 'Now listen to them; but warn them solemnly and let them know what the king who will reign over them will do.' Then God says 1 Samuel 1:18 ' When that day comes, you will cry out for relief from the king you have chosen, and the LORD will not answer you in that day.' 19 But the people refused to listen to Samuel. 'No!' they said. 'We want a king over us. 20 Then we will be like all the other nations, with a king to lead us and to go out before us and fight our battles.' 21 When Samuel heard all that the people said, he repeated it before the LORD. 22 The LORD answered, 'Listen to them and give them a king.'
Here is what we know for sure.
God is not schizophrenic
He would not tell one person to vote for Obama and one to vote for McCain. As the scripture says, a city divided against itself cannot stand, so obviously many people are not hearing from God.
Maybe I am the one not hearing but I know God does not change and Obama contradicts many things I read in scripture so I doubt it.
For all my friends who are voting for Obama can you really look God in the face and say; Father based on your word, I am voting for Obama even though I know he will continue the genocidal practice of partial birth abortion. He might have to nominate three or four Supreme Court justices, and I am sure he will be nominating liberal judges who will be making laws that are against you. I also know he will continue to push for homosexual rights, even though you destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah for this. I know I can look the other way because of the economy.
I could not see Jesus agreeing with many of Obama's positions. Finally I have two questions for all my liberal friends.
Since we know someone's value system has to be placed on the nation,
1. Whose value system should be placed on the nation.
2. Who should determine that this is the right value system for the nation?

Obama’s Secret Campaign Cash: Has $63 Million Flowed from Foreign Sources?
Sunday, October 19, 2008 6:28 PMBy: Kenneth R. Timmerman
Article Font Size
As Barack Obama reaped a stunning $150 million in campaign donations in September, bringing his total to more than $600 million, new questions have arisen about the source of his amazing funding.
By Obama’s own admission, more than half of his contributions have come from small donors giving $200 or less. But unlike John McCain’s campaign, Obama won’t release the names of these donors.
A Newsmax canvass of disclosed Obama campaign donors shows worrisome anomalies, including outright violations of federal election laws.
For example, Obama has numerous donors who have contributed well over the $4,600 federal election limit.
Many of these donors have never been contacted by the Obama campaign to refund the excess amounts to them.
And more than 37,000 Obama donations appear to be conversions of foreign currency.

Answer: Governor Sarah Palin, Alaska
Question: What U.S. governor has a higher classified security rating than either candidate of the Democrat Party?
Answer: Governor Sarah Palin, Alaska. According to the Washington Post, she first met with McCain in February, but nobody ever found out. This is a woman used to keeping secrets. She can be entrusted with our national security, because she already is.
Informational - Educational - Where is the mainstream media?
Listening to the mainstream media these last few days I've learned a few things about the GOP's VP nominee but, I also had to learn a few things on my own.
1. From the media I learned Sarah Palin's husband had a DUI conviction 22 years ago.
* On my own I learned that Ted Kennedy, hero of last month's tribute at the DNC, was drunk while driving a car off a bridge in Chappaquiddick. That same crash killed a young campaign volunteer with whom he was having an affair. Oh, and that woman was pregnant with his child.
* Mr. Palin's (who is not running for office) DUI came a mere 4 years after Barack Obama (who is running for president) stopped using cocaine and marijuana (by his own admission in his autobiography). Shocking - it's OK for the presidential candidate to use drugs or the Dem. party patriarch to kill someone while driving drunk yet a VP candidate should be demonized for something her husband did 22 years ago.
2. From the media I learned that Sarah Palin's daughter is pregnant but not married.
* On my own I learned the Obama's mother was an unmarried street hippy in Honolulu, Hawaii, when she conceived Obama.
* On my own I learned that Joe Biden's (the other VP candidate) son was paid a large amount of money as a consultant to credit card company MBNA. That same company had business before Senator Joe Biden concerning regulation of consumer credit practices. After the company paid a hefty sum to Mr. Biden's son, he voted in favor of legislation to help that company. That same son, Hunter, is also engaged in a legal investigation and suit for defrauding a former business partner. Shocking - it's a crime for the republican VP candidate to have a daughter who's pregnant, even though it's irrelevant to how she performs her job, but it's ok that the democrat presidential candidate's mother conceived him out of wedlock. It's ok, also, for the democrat senator VP candidate to vote in favor of a company that paid his son over a quarter of a million dollars.
3. From the media I learned that Sarah Palin should be considered "selfish" for agreeing to run for VP knowing about her daughter's condition. Knowing that her public role would bring extra scrutiny on the family is selfish and she should have declined in order to protect her child (actually heard this on ABC last weekend).
* Strange - the same people who say Sarah is selfish for running for VP did not seem to care about any impact on Chelsea when Bill Clinton had his dalliance with Monica Lewinsky. That was a private, personal matter you see.
4. From the media I have learned to be "concerned" that Sarah Palin probably won't be able to manage her family and do an effective job of being VP at the same time.
* Funny - I never heard anything about Hillary's ability to support Chelsea while re-doing healthcare or anything from the feminist icons who say you can balance work and family. They also never mention that Barack will have to balance time with his children while meeting with heads of rogue nations or how Joe Biden's kids don't even have a mom and will be fighting for his time while he hosts White House coffee fundraisers and sells nights in the Lincoln bedroom.
5. From the media I have learned that Sarah Palin is "too inexperienced" to be a heartbeat-away from the presidency.
* Apparently taking on corruption in your own party and running a state that's the same size, people-wise, as Delaware (hint hint: that's where Joe Biden is from) is not really experience.
* However, time spent as a "community organizer" and less than 180 days in the senate where you've authored NO significant legislation is just the type of "change" we're looking for from the top of the ticket.
* Funny - inexperience at the top of the ticket is a mantra for "change" and "hope" while strong practical everyday experience, as the #2 is cause for concern.
6. From the media I learned that Sarah Palin's husband once got a ticket for fishing without a license.
* I haven't heard much about the fact that if he were still a practicing attorney, the VP candidate Joe Biden would be disbarred for plagiarism not once but multiple times. It's ok to break the rules if you' re a democrat candidate but not Ok if you are the spouse of a republican candidate.
7. From the media I learned that Sarah Palin doesn't know much about Iraq; in fact we wonder if she even knows where it is.
* Sarah's son volunteered for the US military and is now deployed in Iraq. I guess that doesn't count. Sarah has spent more time with troops in Iraq (as commander of the Alaska National Guard she visited Iraq last year) than Obama has even while running for president. In fact, when Sarah went to Iraq she spent time with the troops. When Obama went there, he skipped a base visit to instead go work out at the Ritz Carlton.
8. From the media I learned that Sarah Palin is a "lightweight" and she better be a "quick study" to keep up with this team.
* Funny, nobody is talking about how, after Barack Obama had "visited 57 states" according to him he only had "5 more to go" or endless other stupid gaffes that expose who he really is.
9. From the media I have learned that (gasp!), Sarah Palin's husband was once a registered member of a 3rd party that favored states' rights (man, this is really bad stuff).
* That same media has been silent to the story that when Barack Obama announced his first senate run, he did so in the home of William Ayers. Mr. Ayers is an un-repentant terrorist convicted for bombing the pentagon. This same Mr. Ayers said on 9/11 that he and his group did not do enough to harm our military and he wished he had done more. During the same time as that comment, he was serving on a board with Barack Obama. All notes and information about their serving together is now locked up by the corrupt Chicago machine and reporter access to those records are being blocked by the Obama campaign.
If we've had any doubts about the bias of the media, it's pretty clear now where they stand. Pass this on to your friends, some of whom may still be on the fence and/or may be getting all of their liberal-biased news/opinions from Katie Couric, Wolf Blitzer, Tom Brokaw and the gang. This is egregious and corrupt. The only way to stop it is to spread information using other outlets and make these guys irrelevant.
Take Down the Bird Feeder
I bought a bird feeder. I hung it on my back porch and filled it with seed. I filled it lovingly and thought, 'What a beautiful bird feeder this is.' Within a week, hundreds of birds took advantage
of the continuous flow of free and easily accessible food.
But then the birds started building nests in the boards of the patio, above the table, and next to the barbecue.Then came the poop. It was everywhere: on the patio tile, the chairs, the table...
everywhere! Then some of the birds turned mean. They would dive bomb at me and even tried to peck me even though I had fed them out of my own pocket.
Others birds were boisterous and loud. They sat on the feeder and squawked and screamed all hours of the day and night. They demanded that I fill it when it got too low on food.
After a while, I couldn't even sit on my own back porch any more. So I took down the bird feeder, and the birds were gone in three days. I cleaned up their mess and took down the many nests they had built all over the patio.
Soon, the back yard was like it used to be... quiet, serene, and no one demanded their rights to a free meal.Now, let's see... Our government gives out free food, subsidized housing, free medical care, and free education and allows anyone born here to be an automatic citizen.
Then the illegals came by the tens of thousands. Suddenly our taxes increased to pay for free services; small apartments are housing 5 families; you have to wait 6 hours to be seen by an
emergency room doctor; your child's 2nd grade class is behind other schools because over half the class doesn't speak English.
Corn Flakes now come in a bilingual box; I have to 'Press one' to hear my bank talk to me in English; and people who wave flags other than 'Old Glory' are squawking and screaming in the streets, demanding more rights and free liberties.
This is just my opinion, but maybe it's time for the government to take down the bird feeder. If you agree, pass it on; if not, continue cleaning up the poop!

ELECTION 2008 Obama: America is 'no longer Christian' Democrat says nation also for Muslims, nonbelievers
Posted: June 22, 20086:50 pm Eastern
By Aaron Klein© 2008 WorldNetDaily
JERUSALEM – Some have been taking issue with largely unnoticed comments made last year by Sen. Barack Obama declaring the U.S. is "no longer a Christian nation" but is also a nation of others, including Muslims and nonbelievers.
The comments have been recently recirculating on Internet blogs.
"Whatever we once were, we're no longer a Christian nation. At least not just. We are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, and a Buddhist nation, and a Hindu nation, and a nation of nonbelievers," Obama said during a June 2007 speech available on YouTube.
At the speech, Obama also seemingly blasted the "Christian Right" for hijacking religion and using it to divide the nation:
"Somehow, somewhere along the way, faith stopped being used to bring us together and started being used to drive us apart. It got hijacked. Part of it's because of the so-called leaders of the Christian Right, who've been all too eager to exploit what divides us," he said.

From: "My Comment" - Barack Obama, "America is a Christian nation"!
I believe with the discovery of America in 1792, the landing of the pilgrims on Plymouth Rock in 1620, and specifically the foundation of our US Constitution in 1776, we have and still are a Christian nation. We must not allow Judeo-Christian values be destroyed from outside forces and/or from within. There seem to be so many in the elective political process who are determined to destroy and/or allow to be destroyed our Judeo-Christian values. Just think about it and remember; without elected and appointed officials "practicing and supporting" Judeo-Christian values, we alone, can be held accountable to our own children, grandchildren, etc. for these failures. America must not follow in the tracks of earlier Germany, under Hitler! God Bless America! - oyh

Poll question: Is Obama qualified?
Chad Groening - OneNewsNow - 10/17/2008 6:00:00 AM
A pro-family organization says it's had an overwhelming negative response to a poll that asks the question: "Do you think Barack Obama is qualified to serve as president of the United States?"
The American Family Association (AFA) created the online poll in response to PBS, which is running a taxpayer-funded poll that asks a similar question regarding the Republican vice-presidential nominee: "Do you think Sarah Palin is qualified to serve as vice-president of the United States?" Dr. Donald E. Wildmon, founder and chairman of AFA, further explains the situation.
"I mean, if they're going to run a poll one way, we run a poll the other way. Well over 300,000 people have voted in our poll that [Obama] is not qualified [to be president]. I think [several thousand have] voted that he is qualified," he says. "The poll was a comeback [to the] PBS [poll]."
Who do YOU think is more qualified to serve in the office they seek --Sen. Obama or Gov. Palin?
Vote in a OneNewsNow poll
Wildmon adds while AFA has published how many respondents they have had to their poll, PBS has not. He says it is interesting that the PBS survey has been stuck on 49 percent for and 49 percent against Palin being qualified for vice president.
"Some people [responding to the PBS poll] are saying now that they're getting the message that computers are down, and it's not working," he contends. "It could be that they're afraid to put it up, because she might, you know, be winning the thing."
As of press time, more than 400,000 people had voted in AFA's poll, with statistics showing roughly five percent believe Obama is qualified to be America's president, 95 percent do not believe he is qualified, and less than one percent are unsure.

A Russian arrives in New York City as a new immigrant to the United States . He stops the first person he sees walking down the street and says, 'Thank you Mr. American for letting me in this country , giving me housing, food stamps, free medical care, and free education!'
The passerby says, 'You are mistaken, I am Mexican.'
The man goes on and encounters another passerby. ' Thank you for having such a beautiful country here in America !'
The person says, 'I not American, I Vietnamese.'
The new arrival walks further, and the next person he sees he stops, shakes his hand and says, 'Thank you for the wonderful America !'
That person puts up his hand and says, 'I am from Middle East , I am not American!'
He finally sees a nice lady and asks, 'Are you an American?'
She says , 'No, I am from Africa !'
Puzzled, he asks her, 'Where are all the Americans?'
The African lady checks her watch and says...'Probably at work!'
I know this guy, do you recognize him ?
YES, I'M A BAD AMERICAN

A German doctor says, 'That is nothing. We can take a lung out of one person, put it in another, and have him out looking for work in four weeks.'
A British doctor says, 'In my country, medicine is so advanced that we can take half a heart out of one person, put it in another and have both of them out looking for work in two weeks.'

So Joe Biden has had a sniper-fire incident of his own... On Monday, he relayed to the National Guard Association his firsthand understanding of the war in Afghanistan. Earlier this year, he claimed, "my helicopter was forced down, with a three-star general and three senators at 10,500 feet in the middle of those mountains." The implication was that the chopper had come under fire. In reality, however, Biden's adventure was akin to Hillary Clinton's whopper (http://PatriotShop.US/product_info.php?cPath=35&products_id=734) about landing under sniper fire in Bosnia in 1996. In fact, a snowstorm forced Biden's copter to land, and his group headed back to a U.S. Air Base in a motorized convoy instead. Oops.
Congress is going to serve as the "watchdog" over the dispensing and recovery of these funds? Can you say, "fox in the henhouse"?
"Tis folly in one Nation to look for disinterested favors from another; that it must pay with a portion of its Independence for whatever it may accept under that character; that by such acceptance, it may place itself in the condition of having given equivalents for nominal favours and yet of being reproached with ingratitude for not giving more.

" As details of Obama's early political career emerge into the light, his associations with such radical figures as Reverend Jeremiah Wright, Father Michael Pfleger, Reverend James Meeks, Bill Ayers, and Bernardine Dohrn look less like peculiar instances of personal misjudgment and more like intentional political partnerships. At his core, in other words, the politician chronicled here is profoundly race-conscious, exceedingly liberal, free-spending even in the face of looming state budget deficits, and partisan. Elected president, this man would presumably shift the country sharply to the left on all the key issues of the day-culture-war issues included. It's no wonder Obama has passed over his Springfield years in relative silence."
HERE'S THE WHOLE ARTICLE:
Barack Obama's Lost Years The senator's tenure as a state legislator reveals him to be an old-fashioned, big government, race-conscious liberal. by Stanley Kurtz 08/11/2008, Volume 013, Issue 45
Barack Obama's neighborhood newspaper, the Hyde Park Herald, has a longstanding tradition of opening its pages to elected officials-from Chicago aldermen to state legislators to U.S. senators. Obama himself, as a state senator, wrote more than 40 columns for the Herald, under the title "Springfield Report," between 1996 and 2004. Read in isolation, Obama's columns from the state capital tell us little. Placed in the context of political and policy battles then raging in Illinois, however, the young legislator's dispatches powerfully illuminate his political beliefs. Even more revealing are hundreds of articles chronicling Obama's early political and legislative activities in the pages not only of the Hyde Park Herald, but also of another South Side fixture, the Chicago Defender.
Obama moved to Chicago in order to place himself in what he understood to be the de facto "capital" of black America. For well over 100 years, the Chicago Defender has been the voice of that capital, and therefore a paper of national significance for African Americans. Early on in his political career, Obama complained of being slighted by major media, like the Chicago Tribune and the Chicago Sun-Times. Yet extensive and continuous coverage in both the Chicago Defender and the Hyde Park Herald presents a remarkable resource for understanding who Obama is. Reportage in these two papers is particularly significant because Obama's early political career-the time between his first campaign for the Illinois State Senate in 1995 and his race for U.S. Senate in 2004-can fairly be called the "lost years," the period Obama seems least eager to talk about, in contrast to his formative years in Hawaii, Califo rnia, and New York or his days as a community organizer, both of which are recounted in his memoir, Dreams from My Father. The pages of the Hyde Park Herald and the Chicago Defender thus offer entrÃ©e into Obama's heretofore hidden world.

Socialism Comes to America
AIM Report By Cliff Kincaid October 15, 2008
But many conservatives understood that, by capitulating to the political Left, McCain and the Republican Party were ceding unnecessary ground to Barack Obama and his “progressive” Democrats.
In his classic 1932 book, Toward Soviet America, Communist Party boss William Z. Foster wrote about how “The United Soviet States of America” would come about. As a result of various capitalist crises, the national government would assume more and more control over the economy. “In finance,” he wrote, “it will mean the nationalization of the banking system and its concentration around a central State bank…”
It would be an exaggeration to say that we are getting close to anything resembling the Soviet system. But it is also a big mistake to call massive federal intervention in the economy a “rescue” or even a “bailout.”

Recently I read about the ACLU is trying to sue the US Naval Academy to stop them from praying to God. Here is what I sent them.
Exercise of our 1st Amendment Rights (responsible freedoms) especially freedom of expression, even religious expressions that are respectful of others, even as Government employees, and even while on Government tax-payer-funded property (if we are not wasting Government time, money or resources), doesn't depend on whether or not others believe or agree with our expressions, even if they are in management positions, or even if they are atheists, even if our good natured expressions cause them to feel bad. Furthermore, if upper level managers allow our religious expressions and public prayers, that should never be construed as State or Corporate "endorsement" of a particular religion.
Jefferson's "Wall of Separation of Church and State" was only intended to separate the "administration" of religion and politics, not to separate God's moral influences from our Government leaders' hearts nor from our legislative process. The only "wall of separation" in America should be between our government (State/Federal/local) and the ACLU (Atheists, Communists, Liberals United).
Most Americans oppose immoral acts, not because of fear (phobias), but because we love the heritage produced by high moral standards. Besides, immoral acts are not included in our 1st Amendment freedom ofexpression; only verbal and written expressions.
Just because people get angry and react negatively against our Bible-based religious expressions and to our peaceful resistance to their immorality, that doesn't mean they are right; but it means they are wrong and don't like the feeling of being wrong. My dad had a saying for people like this (and so-called "atheists" like Mike Newdow, who are "infuriated" with the phrase "One Nation under God" in our Pledge of allegiance). "They are stewing in their own juice." Even the devil and his demons are not atheists; they "believe and tremble" (James 2:19) at the name of Jesus Christ, because they recognize the power in His name. That is why the ACLU doesn't want anyone in our government to pray "in Jesus' name" or on public property.
If you study the Hebrew and Greek words translated "worship" in the Bible, it is easy to see that there is no such thing as an atheist. Everyone has gods and idols (lusts, fears, accomplishments and visual images) they worship and submit to daily. When people admire and submit to the life of love and holiness demonstrated by Jesus Christ, they worshipping the true God.
Our great country of USA was established over 230 years ago by Government leaders who believed the Bible, and were thus motivated by God to leave tyrannical (religious-controlled government and government-controlled religion) and immoral influences in Europe and England, and to separate themselves by 3,000 miles of water. America is like the second Canaan Land. The only way we can maintain the wonderful heritage God enabled us to establish by His divine influence in our Founders' hearts, is for current Government leaders to keep God's influence in their hearts.
God bless you, In Jesus' name.
Please read all of this and pass this on to those you care about. Your future and that of your children depends on everyone knowing the truth. Especially send it to people you know who might be thinking of voting for Osama, er, Obama.
OBAMA'S 'NOT EXACTLY'
1.) Selma Got Me Born - NOT EXACTLY, your parents felt safe enough to have you in 1961 - Selma had no effect on your birth, as Selma was in 1965. (Google 'Obama Selma ' for his full March 4, 2007 speech and articles about its various untruths.)
2.) My Father Was A Goat Herder - NOT EXACTLY, he was a privileged, well educated youth, who went on to work with the Kenyan Government.
3.) My Father Was A Proud Freedom Fighter - NOT EXACTLY, he was part of one of the most corrupt and violent governments Kenya has ever had.
4.) My Family Has Strong Ties To African Freedom - NOT EXACTLY, your 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. Your half-brother, Abongo Obama, is Odinga's follower. You interrupted your 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 burne d 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 5 am 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, your 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 fa ther'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). From...and for more....go to.....

7.) I Never Practiced Islam - NOT EXACTLY, you practiced it daily at school, where you were registered as a Muslim and kept that faith for 31 years, until your wife made you change, so you could run for office. 4-3-08 Article 'Obama was 'quite religious in Islam'' http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=60559
8.) My School In Indonesia was Christian - NOT EXACTLY, you were registered as Muslim there and got in trouble in Koranic Studies for making faces (check your 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 you could speak the language.
10.) Because I Lived In Indonesia , I Have More Foreign Experience - NOT EXACTLY, you were there from the ages of 6 to 10, and couldn't even speak the language. What did you learn, how to study the Koran.

12.) I Blame My Early Drug Use On Ethnic Confusion - NOT EXACTLY, you were quite content in high school to be Barry Obama, no mention of Kenya and no mention of struggle to identify - your classmates said you were just fine.

21.) The Ethics Bill Was Hard To Pass - NOT EXACTLY, it took just 14 days from start to finish.
22.) I Wrote A Tough Nuclear Bill - NOT EXACTLY, your bill was rejected by your own party for its pandering and lack of all regulation - mainly because of your Nuclear donor, Exelon, from which David Axelrod came.

28.) No One on my campaign contacted Canada about NAFTA - NOT EXACTLY, the Canadian Government issued the names and a memo of the conversation your campaign had with them.
29.) I Am Tough On Terrorism - NOT EXACTLY, you missed the Iran Resolution vote on terrorism and your good friend Ali Abunimah supports the destruction of Israel
30.) I Want All Votes To Count - NOT EXACTLY, you said let the delegates decide.
31.) I Want Americans To Decide - NOT EXACTLY, you prefer caucuses that limit the vote, confuse the voters, force a public vote, and only operate during small windows of time.

Question: Which is more important to Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama - the voting rights of ex-felons, or the voting rights of America's military?
Answer: The ex-felons. Why else would Obama refuse to support the "Military Voting Protection Act," which would ensure that the votes of America 's troops serving overseas are counted, but instead supports the "Count Every Vote Act," which would override state laws and extend voting rights to millions of ex-felons?
Organized Labor built manufacturing and many other industries in commerce. Now, states’ legislators, lawmakers on Capitol Hill, Organized Labor, the AFL-CIO, United Auto Workers (UAW), United Steelworkers of America (USW), National Education Association (NEA), and others have all but destroyed many in Manufacturing, our educational social system, and many other vocations within America’s culture.
In the earlier days, Organized Labor began as an effort to provide descent wages in America. Unions grew as America grew, more jobs, and issues grew. With growth, came efforts to provide added agreement benefits for working Americans. Oh, how changes have evolved! In the last five decades, organized labor, with the help of many state legislators, and Capitol Hill Lawmakers, many new laws have been prescribed as economic treatments. Added legislation brings added costs into America’s products’ marketplace. These added costs have created goods becoming excessively expensive, while an imported item is more economical. American consumers have discovered they can find equal or better quality products manufactured elsewhere.
America’s Big Three automakers and other companies within our economy are in a crisis. The rejection of a bailout and/or loan to GM, Ford, and Chrysler is the result of UAW leaders and memberships refusal to trim employee cost and benefits cost of $141M annually and more. Dr. Mark J. Perry, Professor of Economics and Finance in the School of Management at the Flint campus of the University of Michigan http://mjperry.blogspot.com/2007/07/uaw-pricing-themselves-out-of-market.html, best defines the Big 3s’ employee cost.
UAW employees must become more competitive with Mercedes, BMW, Honda, Toyota, and Nissan. Chapter 11, in our US Bankruptcy Court, can make adjustments and trim GM, Ford, and Chrysler CEOs’ bonuses and employee costs and benefits, saving our US automobile manufacturing. Minority GOP Senators were right in denying a bailout and/or loan with the Big 3, and especially the UAW, who refuses to negotiate, in an effort to become more competitive within a free marketplace. In 1960, GM alone, controlled 53% of the worldwide automobile manufacturing. What happened between 1960 and 2008? Did organized labor which help build GM, now destroyed the same GM?
UAW President Ron Gettelfinger claims Toyota’ pay and benefit cost is more than the UAW employees. Please explain why with GM producing equal vehicles in volume to Toyota, GM produces losses of $10Ms while Toyota produces profits of $10Ms. What is the difference? Is it the Big 3 CEOs’ bonuses? Is it the UAW Union’s employees’ pay and benefit cost? America needs a treatment, and now! Chapter 11 Courts can provide the forced necessary changes to rebuild the Big 3.
For a growing economy, America must rebuild manufacturing. Organized Labor must recognize in a free-market America, labor cost must be controlled. We must restructure our educational system, teaching our children the foundations of a Judeo-Christian values system, as the founders of our US Constitution constantly wrote so much about, legislated, and then practiced in real life. With these ideals, we are rebuilding America. Organized Labor, other lobbyists, state legislators, Capitol Hill lawmakers, and others, the choices and determinations are (y)ours.

If Congress doesnot act, American taxpayers will continue to be exposed to the enormous risk that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac pose to the housing market, the overall financial system, and the economy as a whole." --- John McCain arguing for passage of the Federal Housing Enterprise Regulatory Reform Act (S. 190) which he co-sponsored in 2005.

More ACORN Fraud Exposed:
Monday, October 13, 2008 9:15 PM

New testimony obtained by a consumer advocate group from former employees of ACORN paints a startling picture of the apparent misuse of taxpayer dollars to further the group’s left-wing political agenda.
Four former employees of ACORN and of ACORN Housing Corp. have supplied sworn affidavits to the Consumer Rights League that provide eyewitness accounts of how the two organizations have commingled funds and resources, in apparent violation of federal law.
The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) bills itself as a non-partisan group, supported by tax-exempt contributions from individuals and corporations.
The ACORN Housing Corp. (AHC), an ACORN affiliate, receives more than 40 percent of its funding from government sources, ostensibly to promote affordable housing to low- and middle-income families.
But according to CRL, internal documents obtained from whistleblowers suggest that ACORN has failed to maintain the proper distinction between its tax-exempt housing work and its aggressive political activities.
“ACORN and its offshoots take in millions of dollars in government grants under the guise of ‘consumer advocacy’ to line their own pockets,” said Jim Terry, CRL’s chief public advocate.
The new testimony, from four former ACORN and AHC employees, provides “hard confirmation” that ACORN and its affiliate are in fact one in the same, Terry told Newsmax.
“Here are people who have been in the room, testifying to the criminal intent of the people involved” in shuffling ACORN resources from tax-exempt purposes to political activities, he said.
“Everything they do and say, with the exception of filing their government reports, treats this family of organizations as one cohesive unit. They operated as one organization, controlled from the top down,” Terry said.
One former employee, who was with ACORN for six years, including in a management position, testified that she has “knowledge that AHC has subsidized and believe that AHC continues to subsidize ACORN activities,” in apparent violation of the law.
“AHC subsidies to ACORN include office telephone service, fax, supplies and rental space paid for by AHC funds,” she added.
In addition, AHC management routinely treated federal grants as money that could be shared with ACORN, Terry told Newsmax.
“Between 2004 through 2006, AHC transferred $4.6 million to ACORN in grants and fees, according to their tax returns. This is inherently wrong.”
Since 40 percent of AHC funds came from government grants, that means that U.S. taxpayers were in effect paying for ACORN’s partisan political activities, he added.
AHC required employees to “solicit funds and cash from clients and real estate professionals to pay for AHC operations,” one of the whistleblowers said, detailing what amounted to a “shakedown” operation.
Another former AHC employee said he would testify in court to the fact that “AHC and ACORN have operated as one entity,” and quoted internal e-mails detailing how federal grants were shared between the organizations.
The whistleblowers also stated that:
AHC employees were instructed to hide documents from federal auditors with the Department of Housing and Urban Development.
AHC employees were instructed on “steering” loans to partner banks, including Chase (for loans in the New Orleans area) and Bank of America for other areas around the country.
AHC National Field Director Lee Trujillo stated in the presence of several of these witnesses that
“AHC and ACORN would be funded out of the same account.”
AHC and ACORN have also shared “voter initiative money.”
Internal AHC e-mails and other documents “clearly show that AHC is paying for lease space occupied by ACORN.”
All of these are potential violations of the laws governing non-profit organizations.
ACORN is currently under investigation for fraudulent voter registration and related activities in at least 11 key battleground states.
Election officials in several states have said that 50 percent of ACORN voter registrations are fictitious.
Just last week, for example, ACORN’s offices in Nevada were raided by state law enforcement officials after reports that ACORN had registered the starting lineup of the Dallas Cowboys to vote in Las Vegas.
In Connecticut, a 7-year-old girl was found to have been registered to vote by ACORN, which changed her age to 27.
ACORN announced last week that it had just completed “the largest, most successful nonpartisan voter registration drive in U.S. history,” by helping “1.3 million low-income, minority and young voters across the country register to vote.”
The group insisted that the allegations of voter fraud are “bogus,” and “aim to camouflage voter suppression,” a term used by many groups on the left to describe alleged police roadblocks in black neighborhoods in Florida during the 2000 campaign.
Despite a two-year investigation by the U.S. Civil Rights Commission under the direction of Jesse Jackson protégé Mary Frances Berry, not a single eyewitness stepped forward who could corroborate the allegations of voter suppression or police roadblocks in Florida during that election.
ACORN has paid more than 13,000 workers to sign up new voters this election season, and admits that “there are always some people who want to get paid without really doing the job.”
In any large voter registration operation, ACORN said last week, there will always be “a small percentage of workers who turn in bogus registration forms.” But discrepancies in voter registration documents “has nothing to do with ‘voter fraud,’” the group insisted.
AHC gets U.S. government grants to provide free advice and counseling services to low and mid-income consumers on how to qualify for a mortgage.
In the advice it offers consumers, AHC warns about “predatory” lending. And yet, CRL alleges in a report issued earlier this year that AHC engages in many of the same practices it condemns.
“ACORN’s ‘financial justice’ operations attack lenders for ‘exotic’ loans, but AHC has recommended ten-year interest-only loans (which deny equity to the buyer) and reverse mortgages (which can be detrimental to senior citizens),” the report states.
AHC also has worked to obtain mortgages for undocumented workers, and has advised intake officers to counsel consumers how to use “under the table” income not reported to the Internal Revenue Service in order to increase their borrowing ability.
ACORN has devoted $50 million to Project Vote activities in the current election cycle, primarily to register minority and low-income voters.
Barack Obama ran the Chicago branch of Project Vote in 1992, and soon afterwards began teaching classes for “Future Leaders Identified by ACORN.”
In 1995, Obama represented ACORN in a lawsuit against the state of Illinois for its supposed failure to implement the new “motor voter” law, the first piece of legislation signed by Bill Clinton after he became president in 1993.
In a statement now immortalized in a YouTube video, Obama promised ACORN and other community organizations in an Iowa presidential campaign forum for Democrats in December 2007 that if elected president, he would bring them into the White House to help shape the agenda of an Obama administration.
“[B]efore I even get inaugurated, during the transition, we're going to be calling all of you in to help us shape the agenda. We're going to be having meetings all across the country with community organizations so that you have input into the agenda for the next presidency of the United States of America,” Obama pledged.
ACORN endorsed Obama on Feb. 21, 2008, at the most critical point of the tough primary battle that pitted him against Hillary Clinton. Welcoming that endorsement, Obama said, “I’ve been fighting alongside ACORN on issues that you care about my entire career.”
But now that ACORN’s alleged voter fraud activities have become public, the Illinois senator has sought to distance himself from ACORN, just as he has from other former allies, such as the Rev. Jeremiah Wright or former wanted terrorist William Ayers.
His “fight the smears” Web site now has a statement claiming that “ACORN never hired Obama as a trainer, organizer, or any type of employee,” but acknowledged that he was hired by the organization in the 1995 lawsuit.
“Obama’s failure to disclose the true nature of his relationship with ACORN is very surprising and deeply troubling,” the John McCain campaign said in a press release last week.

DISPATCH FROM NAIROBI
Obama raised $1 million for foreign thug's electionDemocrat joined Libya's Gadhafi among top contributors to Odinga
Posted: October 14, 2008

By Jerome R. Corsi© 2008 WorldNetDaily
NEW YORK –Sen. Barack Obama, with a donation of nearly $1 million, and a son of Libyan dictator Muammar Gadhafi were among the biggest contributors to the presidential campaign of controversial Kenyan leader Raila Odinga, according to an internal document obtained by WND.
The memo was prepared by the head of Odinga's campaign finance accounting section, Shakeel Shabbir, as an official report delivered to the national treasurer for Odinga's Orange Democratic Movement party, or ODM.
Among the 72 individuals and organizations that contributed money to Odinga's 2007 presidential run in Kenya, Shabbir lists "Friends of Senator B.O." as having donated 66,000,000 Kenyan schillings, about $950,000.
Saif el-Islam Gadhafi, the Libyan strongman's second oldest son, reportedly donated 53,450,000 Kenyan schillings, about $765,000.
According to several highly credible ex-ODM sources WND interviewed in Kenya, the $950,000 raised for Odinga's campaign came from a series of private meetings arranged for Odinga by Mark Lippert, a foreign policy adviser in Obama's U.S. Senate office. The meetings with top-dollar Obama fundraisers and donors took place during Odinga's 2006 trip to the U.S.

Military death by by year and ethnicity - interesting facts
Military Losses, 1980 thru 2007 Whatever your politics, however you lean, however you feel about the current administration, this report should open some eyes.
Military losses,1980 through 2007. As tragic as the loss of any member of the US Armed Forces is, consider the following statistics:The annual fatalities of military members while actively serving in the armed forces from 1980 through 2006:
1980 ...........2,392 (Carter Year)
1981 .......... 2,380 (Reagan Year)

2007...............899 (George W Year)
Clinton years (1993-2000): 14,000 deaths
George W years (2001-2006): 7,932 deaths
If you are surprised when you look at these figures, so was I.These figures mean that the loss from the two latest conflicts in the Middle East are LESS than the loss of military personnel during Bill Clinton's presidency; when America wasn't even involved in a war!
And, I was even more shocked when I read that in 1980, during the reign of President (Nobel Peace Prize winner) Jimmy Carter, there were 2,392 US military fatalities! I think that these figures indicate that many members of our Media and our Politicians will pick and choose the information on which they report. Of course we all know that they present only those 'facts which support their agenda-driven reporting. But why do so many of them march in lock-step to twist the truth? Where do so many of them get their marching-orders for their agenda?
Do you want further proof? Consider the latest census, of Americans. It shows the following
FACTS about the distribution of American citizens, by Race:
European descent 69.12%
Hispanic .............. 12.5%
Black .................. 12.3%
Asian .................... 3.7%
Native American ... 1.0%
Now... here are the fatalities by Race; over the past three years in Iraqi Freedom:
European descent (white) 74.31%
Hispanic ....................... 10.74%
Black ............................... 9.67%
Asian ........... ................... 1.81%
Native American .............. 1.09%
Other ................... 0.33%
I was surprised again... until it became clear to me that the point here is that our mainstream media continues to spin these figures (for political gain). Nothing more!!!
It's all about politics and some politicians, are now famous for turning American against American for a vote. Consider Hillary Clinton's stump speech after her Super Tuesday 'victory' stating that the current administration does not listen' to anyone and continues the war costing precious American lives. Yes I might even agree with her, but she should be made to acknowledge her own husband's administration, without having an actual war, sent more soldiers to death during his presidency, and is on record of forcing the military to release Osama when we actually had him detained at the time I am not suggesting that any particular political party is necessarily right, there is a lot wrong. But, I hope that during the time between now and November, that intelligent Americans can decipher the facts from the spin and the spinners from the leaders; those who seek even more power from those that seek justice, the dividers from the uniters.
Over the next days let's be good listeners and see and hear who really tries to divide our nation; and who wants to unite our nation. Who wants to control how our money is spent and who wants our money spent the way we would spend it. Who seeks power and who seeks justice? Who spins the facts and who is genuine. (Very few are on both sides)
The above statistics are published by Congressional Research Service, and they may be confirmed by anyone at:
A Trillion-Dollar boost to our struggling Economy- ANWR
At a world oil price above $100 per barrel, the mean expectation for the federal and non-federal ANWR oil reserves is a gross cumulative market value of more than $1 trillion-some experts say $1.5 to $2 Trillion.
It might cost $20 to $30 per barrel to produce the ANWR oil, but the net revenues (after costs) would still be greater than $700 billion (and could turn out to be much higher, depending on the future price of oil). To put this in perspective, the United States could have paid for the entire Iraq war to date with the future oil revenues obtainable from ANWR. Or the U.S. could pay for the entire Defense Department budget for one year.

No misfortune, no injury, no humiliation can destroy it. This is the faith that my commanders affirmed, that my brothers-in-arms encouraged my allegiance to.

John McCain is a man of strong faith---a faith tested by torturous hardship few men have faced. It is a faith that wholly informs his character, his integrity, his purpose, his mission, his worldview.Those who know John McCain well---his family, friends, pastor, political colleagues, and those Patriot veterans who suffered beside him as Prisoners of War---describe many facets of his personality. Their descriptions are ofa man who is complicated and diverse, but to a person, they recognize him as a man of deep and abiding faith.McCain, however, is a man who says little about his spiritual convictions, perhaps in constancy with the counsel of 12th-century Friar Saint Francis of Assisi: "Go forth and preach the Gospel; if necessary use words."
His Baptist pastor, Dan Yeary, says of McCain, "It is a privilege and an honor to be this close to a man I've learned to love, who has the potential to be a great president for our country. I certainly am in favor of God'sendorsement on his life."
Biographer Paul Alexander writes that McCain's quiet faith is also the result of military tradition: "He's a very spiritual person but... in his core, he's a military man. They don't feel comfortable talking about religion."

How many zeros in a billion?
This is too true to be funny.
The next time you hear a politician use the word 'billion' in a casual manner, think about whether you want the 'politicians' spending YOUR tax money.
A billion is a difficult number to comprehend, but one advertising agency did a good job of putting that figure into some perspective in one of it's releases.
A. A billion seconds ago it was 1959.
B. A billion minutes ago Jesus was alive.
C. A billion hours ago our ancestors were living in the Stone Age.
D. A billion days ago no-one walked on the earth on two feet.
E. A billion dollars ago was only 8 hours and 20 minutes, at the rate our government is spending it.
While this thought is still fresh in our brain...let's take a look at New Orleans ....It's amazing what you can learn with some simple division.
Louisiana Senator, Mary Landrieu (D) is presently asking Congress for 250 BILLION DOLLARS to rebuild New Orleans . Interesting number...what does it mean?
A. Well... if you are one of the 484,674 residents of New Orleans (every man, woman, and child) you each get $516,528.
B. Or... if you have one of the 188,251 homes in New Orleans , your home gets $1,329,787.
C. Or... if you are a family of four...your family gets $2,066,012. - Washington, DC

Dobbs: Obama Campaign Funding ACORN Registration Efforts
Sat, Oct 11, 2008
CNN’s Lou Dobbs is outraged that the Obama campaign is funding ACORN’s fraudulent registration efforts this fall. Dobbs says “It is Obscene and Outrageous that their is no federal investigation at this point.” Lou Dobbs and all Americans should be outraged that the Obama campaign gave ACORN $800,000 to fund their illegal voter registration efforts in most battleground states across America.
In Cleveland, OH, a young black man named Freddie Johnson registered to vote 72 times in return for money and cigarettes.
In York, PA, a part time ACORN worker was arrested for registering to vote 100 times.
In one Indiana County, 50% of the ACORN ballots had to be thrown out for being fraudulent.
On CNN, one woman admitted to registering 12 times. She said they encouraged her to register again, even though she was previously registered by others.
Barack Obama’s campaign paid ACORN $800,000 for voter registrations. Many of these registrations have been fraudulent and Americans need to know about that. Registering dead people, registering Batman, and registering people that live at McDonald’s is a sick way to win this election. Let’s hope the FBI rushes to stop this garbage before election day.

School Field Trip to Teacher's Lesbian Wedding Sparks Controversy
Monday, October 13, 2008
First-graders in San Francisco took a field trip to City Hall to celebrate the marriage of their lesbian teacher on Friday, but opponents of same-sex marriage in the state say the field trip was an attempt to “indoctrinate” the students, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.
The field trip was suggested by a parent at the Creative Arts Charter School, and the school said the trip, where students tossed rose petals on their teacher and her wife as they left City Hall, was academically relevant.
"It really is what we call a teachable moment," said Liz Jaroslow, the school’s interim director, according to the newspaper. She said same-sex marriage had historic significance. "I think I'm well within the parameters."
California will vote on Nov. 4 on Proposition 8 which seeks to ban same-sex marriage in the state, and supporters of the measure say the field trip shows that allowing same-sex marriage will mean it’s taught to school children, the newspaper said.
"It's just utterly unreasonable that a public school field trip would be to a same-sex wedding," said Chip White, press secretary for the Yes on 8 campaign, told the Chronicle. "This is overt indoctrination of children who are too young to have an understanding of its purpose."
