Nobama - Too Risky for These Trying Times
As the days tick down to election day, more and more information is surfacing to indicate that Barack Obama may be very close to pulling off the fraud of the century on American voters.
[Update: This article was written before the 2008 election, but many of its points are still relevant, since Obama is seeking re-election in 2012. Following his recent appearance at the Republican National Convention, Clint Eastwood remarked that "President Obama is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people."]
Allegations of fraud have surfaced on many different levels. But conveniently for the Obama camp, the results of any investigations will be delayed until after the election, thus helping to carry out the wholesale hoodwinking of the American public.
If Obama is elected, and all these investigation results become public afterwards, the only possibility to remove him from office is impeachment. How likely is that with a Democrat-controlled Congress?
[I don't remember seeing any investigation results after the election? Do you?]
And if it's successful, then we're stuck with Joe Biden as President. An election-season joke claims that Obama chose Biden as his running mate as "assassination insurance." Maybe he's also "impeachment insurance?"
What's Wrong With Obama?
The mainstream media in this country has already labeled Obama "the One," and is loath to report anything negative about their chosen one, no matter how well-documented it is. And the Obama camp has been very successful in keeping down criticism by labeling everyone who dares to criticize him a racist.
Folks, it's not racist to point out facts, regardless of the person's skin color. No one was called racist for pointing out shady associations and actions of either of the Clintons. So why would it suddenly be racist to point out similar facts about Barack Obama? It isn't. This is just one example of the Obama machine's manipulation of the American people, by playing the race card themselves. They've managed to use it as a very effective weapon.
As these stories have surfaced over the past few weeks, we've written various articles about them. But "the whole is worth more than the sum of its parts." Only by looking at all these things together can you get a real feel for the Barack Obama fraud who would be President.
Each story, on its own, is dismissed by the Obama campaign for one reason or another. Maybe it's just us bitter folks clinging to our guns and religion, but we think they're important.
When you, as an American voter, charged with the responsibility of selecting our leaders, review all these charges, can you honestly draw the conclusion that these claims are irrelevant, and that giving the man the benefit of the doubt is worth staking the future of our nation on the risks they highlight?
One thing is for sure -- there are some important things about Barack Obama that are being hidden from the American public. He seems to be pretty much an empty suit, blessed with the gift of great oratory.
To quote a phrase from the classic Mel Brooks comedy Blazing Saddles, uttered by the inimitable Slim Pickens, Barack Obama "uses [his] tongue purtier than a twenty-dollar wh*re."
There's no doubt, the man has the gift of being an engaging speaker. And if you just listen and accept his words without thinking, it all sounds good. The problem comes when you start realizing what his words mean. Repeatedly, his words and his actions don't match. When we were growing up, we were taught that people whose words and actions don't match are called liars.
The Ultimate Jedi Mind Trick
If you'll indulge us one more movie reference, what's been going on between Barack Obama and voters reminds us of the scene in the original Star Wars, where Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi get stopped by a couple of Stormtroopers.
Stormtrooper: Let me see your identification.
Obi-Wan: [with a small wave of his hand] You don't need to see his identification.
Stormtrooper (to the other): We don't need to see his identification.
Obi-Wan: These aren't the droids you're looking for.
Stormtrooper: These aren't the droids we're looking for.
Obi-Wan: He can go about his business.
Stormtrooper: You can go about your business.
Obi-Wan: Move along.
Stormtrooper: Move along... move along.
Seems to us that's exactly what's been happening every time someone questions the Obamessiah -- we're told we don't need to see his ID, these are not the "facts" we were looking for, we should just move along and go about our business.
[Update: This was the tactic the Obama camp used with regard to the "missing" birth certificate. Then, when the "birthers" just wouldn't let it go, the White House posted online a purported birth certificate, which forensic document experts agree is a forgery. Just what is this man trying to hide?]
But there's just too much at stake for us to give Obama the kind of free pass that most of the media has given him. So let's take a look at the disturbing information that has recently come to light.
So, What are the Allegations?
Character Counts, and Characters Count
It is true that we are known by the company we keep. We tend to gravitate towards people who are like us. Let's face it, if your neighbor's kid (not yours, of course) is hanging around with a crowd that's known to be into drugs, what's the likelihood that he's not doing drugs, too? That's right -- non-druggies don't hang out with druggies. Just like the "cool" kids don't hang out with the "uncool" kids.
One of the troubling things about Barack Obama is the list of characters he's associated with. He keeps waving his hand and telling us we don't need to see his ID with regard to these people -- they're just "people he knows." Uh-huh. Sorry, but the Force is just not strong enough in "that one" for us to believe it.
Barack Obama wants to be Commander-in-Chief of our military forces. Yet if he had to pass the same background investigation to get the security clearance required for the members of "The President's Own" Marine Band (Top Secret - White House Access), chances are very good that he could not.
And it wouldn't be because he has admitted drug use in his past. It would be because of his associations, the "characters" in his circle, and the fact that they include a man and his wife who both were domestic terrorists attacking this country and its citizens.
The list of characters:
- Khalid Al-Mansour, top advisor to a Saudi prince, who helped raise money to pay for Obama's education, and for his political campaigns
- Frank Marshall Davis, Communist journalist-agitator who mentored a young Obama in Hawaii. Davis and Obama's grandfather Stanley Dunham were friends, and Dunham encouraged Obama to spend time with Davis. He is identified in Obama's autobiography simply as "Frank," to conceal his true identity.
[Update: Since the 2008 election, it has been suggested that in fact, the communist Frank Marshall Davis was Obama's real father, not the Kenyan Barack Obama, Sr. These claims have some credibility, given 1) the striking physical resemblance, and the lack of any physical resemblance to the senior Obama, and 2) the fact that Obama's mother asked her father to be sure to take young Barry to visit Frank on a regular basis before she left him with his grandparents and returned to Indonesia.]
- Saul Alinsky, the "father of community organizing" in the U.S.
- Unrepentant terrorists William Ayers and his wife, Bernadine Dohrn, who was once one of the FBI's "Ten Most Wanted" for her part in the Weather Underground bombings that killed innocent Americans. Obama's political career was launched at a party in their Chicago home. Obama dismissed questions about their relationship, saying, "He's just a guy in my neighborhood." Numerous recent articles have showed a much deeper relationship than that, possible extending all the way back to Obama's days at Columbia University.
[Update: It has been suggested that in fact, Bill Ayers was the "author" of Obama's autobiography, which is now suspected to be largely fiction. See the discussion below.]
- Race-baiting, America-hating Reverend Jeremiah Wright, whose church Obama has attended for 20 years, but he'd never heard such racist remarks. He has called Wright his spiritual mentor (Lord help us!) and titled his second book with a phrase from a Wright sermon.
- Tony Rezko, political fundraiser, restaurateur, and real estate developer in Chicago, Illinois, convicted in June 2008 on several counts of fraud and bribery. Conveniently, his sentencing was delayed till after the election. Rezko's wife helped Obama buy his home by buying the adjacent lot, which the owner insisted must be sold at the same time as the home. Then she later sold the Obamas a 10-foot wide strip of the property, so they could have a larger yard.
- And then there's Raila Odinga, a "cousin" of Obama. Senator Obama made a "fact-finding" trip to Kenya at taxpayer expense, and while there, made numerous campaign appearances with Odinga. Although he lost the election, Odinga is now the prime minister, in a "deal" worked out with the elected president to stop the tribal violence which erupted after the election, resulting in the deaths of more than 1500. James Carville has already hinted there may be rioting in the U.S. if Obama's NOT elected
Buying the election?
Who's supplying the money behind the Obama juggernaut?
If we elect Barack Obama, who will wield the power of the White House? Aren't we entitled to know -- BEFORE we vote? One likely source of large amounts of Obama's funding is billionaire leftist George Soros, who also funds organizations like MoveOn.org.
Barack Obama has raised unprecedented amounts of money, with his campaign boasting about the fact that much of it has been donated by individual donors in small amounts, $25 to $100, in an attempt to make it appear his appeal is more widespread. Unfortunately, it seems that much of that money may have been contributed illegally.
Under federal election law, donors of "small amounts" (less than $200) do not have to be individually reported by the candidate. But several sources have reported serious improprieties in those small donations to the Obama campaign. Many instances were found of donors giving fake identities, like "Good Will" and "Doodad Pro," and entering gibberish in the blanks for their occupation and employer.
Some of these donors gave far more than the legal limit of $4600 ($2300 for the primary, and another $2300 for the general election) in small increments, yet the Obama campaign made no effort to return the excess amounts until the allegations were brought to light and an investigation was launched. Many of them still haven't been returned.
Then there's the problem with illegal foreign contributions. The candidates can legally accept donations only from U.S. citizens. The Obama campaign allegedly made no attempt to determine whether its foreign donors (who listed obviously foreign addresses) were U.S. citizens. Many are probably not, like the pair of brothers in the Gaza strip who bought more than $33,000 of Obama t-shirts to be shipped to Gaza, knowing that their purchase was a campaign contribution.
Voter registration fraud
Alleged voter registration fraud by ACORN has become a problem, with documented reports of ACORN paying people to register multiple times, and registering people using false names and names of deceased voters. One young man was interviewed on TV who admitted he'd registered 72 times at the behest of ACORN, even though he told them he'd already registered. And they paid him with cigarettes. In Nevada, they registered the Dallas Cowboys offensive line. How many of you think that Tony Romo will vote in Nevada? And in Florida, they registered Mickey Mouse.
What does that have to do with Obama? His campaign paid ACORN more than $800,000 to register new voters.
Apparently enough press was generated over ACORN's activities that the FBI and a federal prosecutor are conducting a RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act) investigation in Illinois, which could include Obama, Pelosi & Reid. Can't you just see the headlines? "President and House leadership indicted for racketeering." A RICO suit has already been filed in Ohio.
Interference with Current Administration's Efforts
Talk about audacity -- while Obama was in Iraq on his highly publicized whirlwind tour this summer, he met with Iraqi leaders, secretly urging them to stall on the status of forces agreement until after the election, and once he was President, he would "take care of it."
Who wrote Obama's book?
Writer and producer Jack Cahsill has asserted that Obama didn't even write his own autobiography, the widely-touted Dreams From My Father. Cashill noticed what appear to be two different voices speaking in Obama's book, and couldn't help noticing that the prose style closely resembles that of unrepentant terrorist William Ayers in his own book, Fugitive Days.
In a three-part series, Cashill develops detail after detail which, when taken together, seem fairly convincing that Obama did NOT write the entire book, and that many parts of it were written by someone else. After comparing the two books, he concludes that the same person wrote much of Obama's book, Dreams, and Ayers' book. That person most likely was William Ayers. You know, the guy Obama dismissed as "just some guy who lives in my neighborhood."
Just the fact that someone else helped him write his book is no big deal. Lots of "celebrities" have ghost writers. But most are acknowledged. For example, right on the cover of "Faith of My Fathers," it says, "John McCain with Mark Salter."
The big deal is that Obama has attempted to pawn off the book as his own work, and that the person who likely wrote much of it is that "guy in his neighborhood" he claims not to have much of a relationship with.
The lies and cheating and deceit seemingly never end. Didn't we have enough of that in the Clinton White House?
This man has no experience that would qualify him to be President, and too many questionable connections that would prevent him from getting a security clearance to play in the President's Band. He wants to spread YOUR wealth around, while spreading around very little of his own. He's a Marxist and a Socialist, and he's not somebody we want in the White House. He lacks the character to be President.
As his running mate Joe Biden pointed out, a President Obama would invite a major international incident to "test" him sometime within the first year of his term. Why in the world would we as Americans want to issue that invitation?
So, our vote is NOBAMA!

Checks and Balances
What a nightmare it would be for all three branches of our government to be controlled by the far left Democrats. Pelosi and Reid are already carrying on a circus in the Congress. With a Democrat in the White House, there would be nothing to keep them in check.
And the next President is likely to make one or more nominations to the Supreme Court. If that President is Obama, you can expect far left judges who are willing to legislate from the bench (create new law) rather than "upholding the Constitution," which they (and the President) swear an oath to do. Obama has already been heard lamenting that during the Civil Rights movement of the 1960's, the Supreme Court didn't really get into the issue of redistribution of wealth. They're not supposed to! But that comment gives us a good idea about the kind of judges he would appoint.
Remember in 2007, when people were saying, "Anyone but Hillary?" Well, be careful what you wish for. And if you thought Hillary in the Oval Office would be a nightmare, just imagine her on the Supreme Court for the next 20 years or so! That would be the same Hillary who was fired from her first job as a lawyer in 1974 for being dishonest and unethical.
[Well, instead of Hillary on the Supreme Court, she was named Secretary of State, and will likely be the Democrat candidate in 2016.]
Our founding fathers carefully created a system of checks and balances in our government, creating three branches with equal power, so that no one branch could spiral out of control without some checks in places by the other two branches. So imagine a President Obama in the White House, which is the Executive Branch; Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid in charge of the Congress, or the Legislative Branch; and two Supreme Court appointments by Obama in the Judicial Branch; and you have all three branches of our government controlled by Democrats. That alone should be a good enough reason for electing a Republican President!
