* Bumped up *

If you were waiting for proof that Obama favors an anti-America, global view of reality, his speech to the UN General Assembly should settle the matter.

Let’s start with Obama’s inept handling of the Declaration of Independence preamble before an Hispanic Conference and his perfect (and confident) recitation of the UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Remember, at both events, Barack was reading from a teleprompter. Presumably he had approved the speech he would give in each event. Yet he struggled (and failed) to accurately quote the Declaration of Independence but was smooth and flawless with the UN document.

So why does Barack leave out the key phrase, “ENDOWED BY THEIR CREATOR” and perfectly quote the UN document? (See Barack: King of the Morons for his Declaration of Independence faux pas.)

Here’s a quote from his speech on Thursday:

One of the first actions of this General Assembly was to adopt a Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948. That Declaration begins by stating that, “recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice, and peace in the world.”

Find it strange that he easily handles the UN document but stumbles with our nation’s founding declaration?

How about elections? Barack stated a new U.S. policy:

It’s time for every member state to open its elections to international monitors and increase the U.N. Democracy Fund. It’s time to reinvigorate U.N. peacekeeping, so that missions have the resources necessary to succeed, and so atrocities like sexual violence are prevented and justice is enforced — because neither dignity nor democracy can thrive without basic security.

Got that? He wants Iranians and Venezuelans and Cubans to monitor elections in this country. How do I know? They are member states and international monitors are selected from member states. What the hell is wrong with this guy? I have a suggestion–let’s put monitors in Chicago to ensure the fair citizens of the Windy City get a fair shake. Yep, we can’t trust our own officials. We need folks from outside to come in and show us how to run a proper election.

Then the most unbelievable comparison–Obama equates Wall Street with Al Qaeda (it is subtle, but the comparison is made):

Outside the doors of this hall, the blocks and neighborhoods of this great city tell the story of a difficult decade. Nine years ago, the destruction of the World Trade Center signaled a threat that respected no boundary of dignity or decency. Two years ago this month, a financial crisis on Wall Street devastated American families on Main Street. These separate challenges have affected people around the globe. Men and women and children have been murdered by extremists from Casablanca to London; from Jalalabad to Jakarta. The global economy suffered an enormous blow during the financial crisis, crippling markets and deferring the dreams of millions on every continent. Underneath these challenges to our security and prosperity lie deeper fears: that ancient hatreds and religious divides are once again ascendant; that a world which has grown more interconnected has somehow slipped beyond our control.

Barack does not write this tripe. That’s why he has speechwriters. But damn it, he’s supposed to read and understand what he is saying. Whoops. My bad. He understands exactly what he is saying. That’s what is so troubling.

    I still think BO looks more like Malcolm X than anyone…and Malcolm’s lawyer helped him.

    In 1987, Khalid Abdullah Tariq al-Mansour, a Black Muslim, Black nationalist, an outspoken enemy of Israel, and mentor to Black Panther Party founder Huey Newton was approached to raise money to fund OBAMA’s Law School education at Harvard. Fellow BPP founding member, Bobby Seale, was asked to write a letter of recommendation to Harvard Law on OBAMA’s behalf. Al-mansour enlisted Percy Sutton in the fund raising effort for OBAMA. Percy Sutton was a New York (Manhattan) Assemblyman and had served as an attorney for Malcom X (El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz). At the time Al-Mansour enlisted Percy Sutton’s assistance in the fund raising, he was working for one of the world’s richest men, mega-billionaire Prince Al-Waleed (Al-Walid) bin Talal of the Saudi royal family and cousin of Osama bin Mohammed bin Awad bin Laden.

    joseph, the “crime of the millenium” was 9/11, not the election of Obama. Why do I say this?? Here is why.. electing Obama is fixable, 9/11 is not.

    “Let’s start with Obama’s inept handling of the Declaration of Independence preamble”

    Just a nit, Larry, but the Declaration of Independence doesn’t have a “preamble”. The sentence you’re referring to isn’t even in the first paragraph, it’s in the second.

    maybe the politicians should take a trip like I did. Hemet (small town)- San Francisco – Portland Ore – Glacier Park Mt – St Paul MN – Buffalo Ny – Albany NY – Philadelphia Pa- Wildwood NJ – Charleston SC – Orlando Fla – San Antonio Tx – home. In every place that I stayed the same message from the people Ecomony sucks, do not see it getting any better. Small business hurting, Unemployment high.
    That is a large circle of the USA and the problems are the same whether it is in the north, south , east or west. I have never seen any thing like it in my lifetime. The American people are hurting and the present government does not give a damn. I really do not know how long it will be before the people say enough is enough and America should succed from Washington. Right now the people believe that maybe things could change by elections. Keep stealing elections and you take away that belief and there will be very big problems

    Welcome back helenK. Glad you enjoyed your trip. I told a Democratic Caller much the same thing a few days past. She was calling me to ask me to support Russ Feingold as I had done in the past. I told her what you said plus that since Russ didn’t support the rights of Americans I didn’t support him and that I was happily voting for his opponnent! It felt good too!

  • susiepuma-still a crazy cracker

    Was watching the news this am & I heard something that made my jaw drop & think WTF?  Feingold is way behind in Senate race in Wisconsin – the fraud is tying like hell to fill a hall? at the U of Milwaukee & not doing so well – the announcer said the fraud is going there to help Feingold but Feingold is staying away & Tom Kaine (what a dumb ass) says – not a problem – that that is the candidates privilege to attend or not – Am I nuts or what?  The fraud is specifically coming to campaign for the idiot but the said idiot is not going to show up because why?  as far as I know Feingold’s a loyal Dem – has been for years – & slobbered all over the fraud prior to the election – Do they (the dems) really think people are that stupid that we don’t understand?  Guess so ‘cuz they continue to think they are going to win big in November – Also – saw an ad – a Dem in North Dakota is running ads with George Bush in them – & I won’t even mention Grayson in FL – I hope he loses his seat too – big time – can’t believe Fl voters were dumb enough to elect him – talk about brain dead –

    Also heard the Muchelle Anntoinette is gonna campaign in WI for Feingold in Oct – who cares?  She’s just as worthless as the fraud she is married too……………

    Saw a poll in my state that retread Dem Dayton and Repub Tea Party Emmer are pretty much tied – Independent Candidate Horner (former Repub – probably RINO) is pulling votes from both – election should be interesting……………….

    I AM BACK!!!!!!!!

    In my circle around this beautiful , diversivied, wonderful country I did not find one person who liked benedict backtrack. In every state and city that I stopped in the economy was the main worry. Small business people are hurting big time. No one believes that it will get better anytime soon. There was a small business convention in San Antonio and uncertainty was the main theme.
    My tiip was great from watching Lady GaGa fans in St Paul to the ” roar to the shore” in New Jersey with over 35000 motorcyclists. I met one from rolling thunder and thanked him for the club stopping the fruitcake so-called preacher that crashs military funerals and hurts the grieving families. I think I shocked him that some one knew and cared.

    Damn I love this country and am already planning my trip for next year. From Emeryville arcoss the Sierra Nevada mountains to Chicago then down along the Mississippi to Natchez and Memphis then again to NOL then to Onlando and Philadelphia then home.

    I had the pleasure of telling a democratic caller yesterday ” no way in hell would I vote democratic, I left the party on May 31, 2008 and you could not pay to ever vote for one again.

    I have not read all the posts since I left last month but will catch up on them

    Obama Again Omits ‘Creator’ When
    Speaking of ‘Inalienable Rights’ Cited
    in Declaration of Independence

    by Terence P. Jeffrey   

    Original Article

    9/28/2010 8:19:04 AM     

    Just seven days after he sparked controversy by omitting the word “Creator” when he closely paraphrased the passage from the Declaration of Independence that says all men “are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights,” President Barack Obama again omitted the Creator when speaking about the “inalienable rights” that “everybody is endowed with.”

    This time the president was speaking at a Sept. 22 fundraiser for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) at the Roosevelt Hotel in New York City, and his reference to “inalienable rights”….

    “If you see the world in terms of Left & Right, you really aren’t seeing the world at all . . . ”

    Poll: MSNBC trusted by……wait for it…….12%.

    What caught my eye in the Wall Street speech in the article below was Bambi’s substitution of the word “extremist” for Muslim terrorists. As in people in London etc were MURDERED BY EXTREMISTS–NOT MUSLIM TERRORISTS heaven forbid. There is of course a political correct purpose here–not to offend Muslim who feel they are being discriminated against just because their religion harbors people who favor genocide as a way to defend their faith, people who take very literally what the Prophet said when he was asked what his message was to non-believers was, i.e. prepare to die. Most people, even the dummies who voted for Obama get that part. Whether they agree with it or not is a separate question.
    The more interesting question however is this: of all the words that Bambi could have used to substitute for the words Muslim terrorists, why did he choose the word extremist? Having studied this demagogue for three years now, the answer is obvious to me–and probably not to the ignorant fools who voted for him. In fact, many of those ignorant fools may actually agree with this second purpose. And, not surprisingly, it is Orwellian in cast.
    He wants to use this word for domestic purposes as well. It is after all a tool for political control. Balderdash! Oh really? Well hear me out. We have seen that term before have we not? It was used by big media to initially to describe McVeigh and more broadly to define people who oppose the federal government. More recently, big media and Obama have used that same word–extremist to define the Tea Party movement. They have looked for any scintilla of evidence which would allow them to repeat it. Finding none, they were even willing to invent scenarios which allow them to perpetrate this false moral equivalency, and to discourage anyone from opposing Obama. The danger here is obvious. The word terrorist is defined by violence in general and/or the commission of a violent act, whereas the word extremist casts a much broader net. It covers words and thoughts as well. And the word is elastic in the sense that it can be stretched to cover virtually any situation, and vilify any group of people. That is the real game Bambi is playing here.

    I hope she doesn’t. I’m not sure I’d vote for her this time. She’s done. I will always admire Hillary Clinton, and I will always believe her nomination was stolen by the Obamacrats at the DNC. I will always believe that she would have made a MUCH better president than Obama. But, her time has passed for POTUS, unfortunately. It was her time; her time has passed. Howard Dean stole it from her, and from us. I will never forgive him.

    How about Gitmo?  He might just have to go through the rest of his miserable, incarcerated life having his ice cream rationed.

  • Noogan

    Remember this? It was done with POTUS’ full approval. 


    This photo was taken at a rally at the state capitol Phoenix Arizona. The news will not show it and the Capitol Police and Homeland Security would not let Americans or any of the Veterans present do anything to stop it.
    Bystanders who tried to stop it were threatened with arrest, and were told they would be booked under federal charges if they interfered.
    Homeland Security was designed to identify and defend America from terrorism; yet yesterday it let illegal and legal citizens of this country desecrate the flag.  People were spitting on it, stomping on it, and burning it with cigarettes. One soldier who had just returned from Iraq tried to grab the flag and was thrown to the ground by the Capitol Police and Homeland Security.

    It amazes me how some people will spit on America while prospering from our system and our government.
    And, our President will say nothing.

    Cap-and-trade is simply the latest convoluted scheme cooked up by money men to divest us of more of our dollars.  Just like sub-prime mortgages and derivatives and ther rest of Wall Street’s financial crap, it’s complicated beyond John Q’s understanding. 

    But what John Q. DOES know is that Ultimately, the money they make will have come out of our pockets. 

    Happily, I do not see that Barry has a prayer of passing it.  If Dems are threatening to abandon Pelosi as SoH there’s no way they’ll go along with Barry on this.

    The fly in the ointment could actually be Republicans.  Note, please, that the CCX came into being in 2003.  Guess who held all the cards back then.  One would think that Repubs would run from this like it was tear gas but logic often falls by the wayside when there are large sums of money to be made.

    The problem for us common folk is that the money men don’t really give a damn about politics beyond buying as many pols as possible.  Nor do the pols give a damn that we are being screwed, with all that money flowing into their coffers.

    Reading about this incestuous bunch of money grabbers is nauseating and depressing.  Up against ten trillion we don’t stand a chance.

    Really? You don’t give a rats tail? The reason why his past and true identity is HIGHLY RELEVANT should be obvious.

    This type of distain for specifics pertaining to our country is not new founded for O, it is a lifetime of dislike IMHO. Somehow he has lost the ability to equate himself as one of “us”, settting himself apart for whatever reason; seemingly a victim attitude. He easily forgets the benefits given to him, that provided him a path to where he is. That is what gets me the most.I don’t resent the path provided I resent the entitlement attitude; as it continues on to this day. One can never satisy the “needs” of this type of person ever, one can never give enough or support enough, or do whatever exists to satisy what is in his mind. This is not a new behavior, it doesn’t happen overnight, and it is delivered by group empowerment. At this point in history it is fair to say, not one of us is any more entitled than another, regardless of ____________(fill in the blank). There is a should that must be said- Shouldn’t we all be on equal footing at this point, y’know Mr. President, like women? So spare me, great and powerful Oz, that you, personally  have issues that you are trying to correct by putting your imagined needs before your country, you selfish little shit.
