Obama Redefines the Term "Presumptive Democratic Nominee"

There have emerged numerous adjectives to describe Sen. Obama. Many have forgotten Sen. Biden's Clean and articulate but more often we hear arrogant, messianic, and narcissistic. The adjective that is most accurately applied is Presumptive Democratic Nominee, which he is, yet an statement he made to Democrat Congressmen casts that title in a new light.

"I have become a symbol of the possibility of America returning to our best traditions,"

Presumptive? Breathtakingly so.

Voter Fraud in Virginia

Update 4:37pm:This from the WDBJ7 Roanoke News:
Three people in Hampton were recently charged with voter fraud. Now Republican Party of Virginia Chairman Jeff Frederick is calling for a statewide investigation.

See commentary at end of Press release.


Virginia GOP Chairman calls for criminal investigation into mounting evidence of coordinated voter fraud activities

Richmond, Virginia (July 28, 2008) – Delegate Jeff Frederick, Chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia, this morning called on Governor Kaine and Attorney General McDonnell to open a thorough and rigorous investigation into what appears to be coordinated and widespread voter fraud activities occurring throughout Virginia.

Frederick’s request is in response to a report last week of three individuals in Hampton, Virginia being arrested and charged with voter registration fraud, a Class 5 Felony, as well as reports of fraudulent voter registration forms in Richmond. According to a signed affidavit, a Richmond voter had a fraudulent new registration card submitted to the local registrar. When the victim was notified on Thursday afternoon, the registrar informed her that there were other similar applications submitted in Richmond. (see affidavit)

The individuals in Hampton worked for Community Voters Project – a 3rd party group with ties to Fund for Public Interest and the Public Interest Research Group (PIRG). PIRG, which seems to be a front group for a number of left wing causes, has a documented history of attempting to add fraudulent, phony or duplicative names to the voter registries across the nation.

“It seems nearly every day, I read or hear of some news report about how many new people are being registered to vote in Virginia in anticipation of the Presidential race this year. Getting more citizens involved in the process is great – that’s what democracy is all about. Yet, nothing undermines democracy more than poisoning the process and jeopardizing the integrity of our elections,” said Frederick.

“This is a very serious and troubling trend that we are seeing in Virginia,” he added. “Laws are being broken and Virginians have to wonder if there is a deliberate effort underway to corrupt and affect the outcome of November’s elections. I urge the Governor and Attorney General to take immediate action to investigate these matters.”

Even more troubling, Frederick said, was the opportunity for identity theft when citizens register to vote with these groups, as people must give a correct social security number on the voter registration form.

“People must exercise extreme caution when putting their private information into the hands of a stranger, for obvious reasons. I encourage voters to contact their local registrars and the major credit bureaus to verify that their voter and financial information has not been tampered with.”

Beginning of commentary:

I'm perplexed as to why voter registration drives are necessary in a state that has moter-voter laws. Everyone who has a driver's license issued in this state is offered a voter registration form. If there is a necessity it would be for the election board to update the registry to eliminate people who are not longer eligible to vote such as the illegal, incarcerated and interred thus eliminating most of the Democrat base.

More perplexing is the near exclusive interest Liberals have in corrupting the vote. This is the best clue as to how they would rule over us if they had unfettered power. No rules, just do as you are told.

25 July 2008

Barack Hussein Obama, potentially my opponent in the upcoming presidential election, was right when he said we should be embarrassed about our language skills. When in France we can only say, "Merci boucoups," he said.

However, our language proficiency right here in the United States is much more embarrassing. In many of our cities, English is a second language - second to Spanish and "jive talk." English dictionaries are plentiful. They explain the spelling, meaning and pronunciation of all the words in the English language; and many dictionaries contain appendices for grammar and punctuation as well. But, some individuals, determined not to be like "gringos" or "whitey," deliberately abuse the language even though refusal to speak English well is counterproductive for the individual. Perhaps as many as 11 million of our Hispanic citizens and 20 million of our black citizens speak English poorly or not at all.

As for comparison of our culture with the Europeans', polite pity toward them would be appropriate, not personal embarrassment. But, we might also acknowledge that we see them as a harbinger of what we will be like if we continue down the road away from our Constitution and toward socialism.

As a soldier, I served twice in Europe, 1948-1951 and 1956-1959, and I saw no reason to be embarrassed about being just an English-speaking American among multilingual Europeans.

All my life, I've heard that many Europeans look on us as the uncultured, Ugly Americans and how sophisticated the Europeans are. But, really, how sophisticated are they? The Germans fell for the oratory and pageantry of Herr Shickelgruber, and followed him to their doom and the demise of the Third Reich. They listened to John F.Kennedy and Ronald Reagan speak in Berlin about freedom and individual liberty; and The Wall came down. Can they discern now the significance of Senator Obama's message to the German people? Do they realize he advocates international socialism and Sharia law-like global conformity?

Today, we are telling the world that this erstwhile freedom-loving country is considering electing president some one who hates this country and has communist friends and associates; e.g., Frank Davis and Bill Ayers. Now, that's embarassing.

Very Respectfully,

Obadiah Baldwin Eagle, "Old Baldy"
Candidate for the US Presidency

Obama's World Tour

The big European tour of "Obama: The Rock Opera" drew a huge crowd, not because Obama was there so much as free food, beer and rock bands sucked them in for Barack's photo op. Gerard Baker of The Times Online in the UK has let slip the crack in the Obama myth that all are enthralled by his message of change. His article is entitled "He ventured forth to bring light to the world." It is well worth reading. I could not help after I read it to recall the last lines of "Tommy."

We're not gonna take it
We're not gonna take it
We're not gonna take it
We're not gonna take it

We're not gonna take it
Never did and never will
Don't want no religion
And as far as we can tell
We ain't gonna take you
Never did and never will
We're not gonna take you
We forsake you
Gonna rape you
Let's forget you better still.

The problem with the new messiahs is they can only get by on their charisma for so long. Sooner or later it gets old. This foreign tour has just about worn the glitter off Barack just by the strong glare of constant fawning coverage. Try as they might the tepid response to his empty speech can't be ignored.

More telling of what this whole charade is really about is the gushing reports that Obama is raising much more donations from ex-pats in Europe than McCain. He's fleecing the kool aid drinkers but fooling no one else.

Barack Obama's Inner Kook

While touring overseas, Barack Obama noticed that the troop's televisions were all tuned to Fox News. Since this seemed unfathomable to him he commented on it, speculating that it was a mandate by President Bush.

I suppose to him it's the right wing conspiracy pumping propaganda to the troops so they can continued to be fooled into serving the commander-in-chief by fighting in Iraq. He just can't grasp the concept that our soldiers would freely choose to watch something other than the mainstream media. To take the assumption that the President was forcing them to watch Fox News is an indication that he is either a kook or he naturally expects the current President to be handling such things in the same way he would when President.

He could just be perplexed that they were watching the only network that didn't have an anchor to travel with him.

Obama's Army of Advisers

How easy is it to know if a candidate has core beliefs that drive his effort to gain elective office or if he is just another politician trying to game the polls to win at any cost? Just count the number of advisers. In the crucial area of foreign relations Obama has no less than 300 advisers.

Every day around 8 a.m., foreign policy aides at Senator Barack Obama's Chicago campaign headquarters send him two e-mails: a briefing on major world developments over the previous 24 hours and a set of questions, accompanied by suggested answers, that the candidate is likely to be asked about international relations during the day....

...Behind the e-mail messages is a tight-knit group of aides supported by a huge 300-person foreign policy campaign bureaucracy, organized like a mini State Department, to assist a candidate whose limited national security experience remains a concern to many voters.

"It is unwieldy, no question," said Denis McDonough, 38, Obama's top foreign policy aide, speaking of an infrastructure that has been divided into 20 teams based on regions and issues, and that has recently absorbed, with some tensions, the top foreign policy advisers from Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton's presidential campaign...

...Obama's Republican rival, Senator John McCain of Arizona, has a far smaller and looser foreign policy advisory operation, about 75 people in all, and none are organized into teams.

300 advisers broke up into 20 teams so Obama can know what to say about foreign policy matters? What more evidence does one need to confirm his lack of experience and vision? If he has any underlying philosophy that drives him he is hiding it behind the green curtain of his advisory teams.

Worse though is who the people are who make up this mob. No less than Madeleine Albright and Warren Christopher two of the most clueless secretaries of state we have had and Anthony Lake, Lee Hamilton, Richard Clarke all warmer over dinosaurs from the blame America first crowd. Here is what Ralph Peters said about them in The New York Post.

These are the people whose watch saw the first attack on the World Trade Center, Mogadishu, Rwanda, the Srebrenica massacre, a pass for the Russians on Chechnya, the Khobar Towers bombing, the attacks on our embassies in Africa, the near-sinking of the USS Cole - oh, and the US bombing of the Chinese embassy in Belgrade.

Obama is either full of bologna or clueless, neither of which would be good for this country. Just looking at who he has surrounded himself with I vote for clueless

Old Glory Waving

Time is running out. With only four months to go to the November election, we'd better try to visualize our future with each of the presidential candidates.

Under the wrong administration, the United States Constitution might cease to exist. Given an attack the size of 9/11 or larger on our country, destruction might be great enough to result in placing our nation under martial law. A mere group of 19 men armed only with box cutters in a few minutes vaporized 3000 people in their skyscrapers and the Pentagon, severely damaged our national military headquarters and financial center, ran our congressmen out of their offices, grounded air travel, and dealt a blow to our economy with effects which lasted over a year. Therefore, it is reasonable to assume that a larger attack on one of our cities with a more destructive weapon might result in takeover of control of the nation by the president. He might rule by fiat, the constitutional checks and balances gone. A Marxist-Muslim Barack Hussein Obama as president might in effect swiftly nullify the Constitution.

Barack Hussein Obama has thus far succeeded in concealing or pragmatically denouncing the Muslims, communists, terrorists, and crooks he has associated himself with all his life; and he is slow to reject the endorsements of his presidential candidacy by such despots and terrorists as Kim Jong Il, Ahmedinejad, Hugo Chavez, Muammar Khadafi, Fidel Castro and Hezbollah. Heavily funded by the likes of multi-billionaire Greek George Soros, he plays into the hands of the Marxist media who seem to be more interested in building an intriguing story than supporting our nation at war.

Perhaps thoughtful voters are not deceived by Mr. Obama's pandering and oratorical spell-binding. Maybe they noticed the presidential seal he designed for himself to use on the podium as he spoke at a Democrat governors meeting June 20, 2008. His seal was a take-off on the Great Seal of The United States, but, there was no flag on the seal. An "O" on the spread-eagled breast was where the flag should be. Obama's name replaced the United States of America, saying, "Obama for America" (without identifying what part of the Western Hemisphere he was for, such as the United States, Cuba or Venezuela); the motto, "Yes, we can" replaced "E Pluribus Unum" ("Out of many, one"); and Congress was evidently out of a job, because our leader's web site was provided, which we may go to directly, to discover what we must do to serve him. Might Mr.Obama take down the American flag now waving over the White House and replace it on alternate days with the hammer and sickle, and the crescent and scimitar? He has an obvious aversion to display of our flag.

With the presidential election approaching, we urgently need to realize how little there really is left of our Constitution, and which contender for the office is apt to repair the damage done. Today, our once-revered Constitution is often ignored and sometimes reviled. Property rights are no longer assured - the Kelo decision allowed a local jurisdiction to exercise eminent domain and transfer private property from one owner to another in order to increase tax revenue. National sovereignty is no longer protected. We entertain such demeaning schemes as the Kyoto treaty, the North American Union, the Global Poverty Act, and the Law of The Sea. Individual liberty is severely threatened by "fairness in broadcasting," abortion, hand over of local public schools to a massive federal bureaucracy, transfer of wealth, and persecution of Christians. Meanwhile, armed combatants detained by our armed forces overseas are extended rights of United States citizens and prisoners of war when the detainees qualify as neither; and the judicial branch usurps the exclusive authority of the legislative and executive branches to write and execute law.

Francis Scott Key's anxiety that night 194 years ago was well founded. Ratification of our Constitution had created us as a nation just 27 years earlier, and British warships were bombarding our defenders on Fort McHenry.

"O say can you see," Mr. Key wrote, "What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?

******************** *****************

O say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave,
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?"

Our flag and the republic for which it stands were in mortal danger in 1814 - and are much more so now. Incredibly, we are actually considering elevating to the position of president someone ineligible for a security clearance. He has closely associated himself his entire life with communists, terrorists and crooks to the extent that he is a potentially grave security risk.

Lest we lose what liberty and freedom we now have, we had better vote someone into the office of president who unabashedly loves our country and its Constitution. That would be Senator John McCain.

"And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave,
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!"
