Organizing Kids for Obama-Indoctrination

The following is a message from Phyllis Schlafly, founder of the Eagle Forum. The complete 11-page Obama Organizing For America Intern application form mentioned in this report is reproduced below. It was obtained from Pamela Geller's web site www.atlasshrugs.com

Organizing Kids for Obama
February 26, 2010 by Phyllis Schlafly
President Barack Obama's budget has added more than $100 billion of federal taxpayers' money to what is called "education," so that means it will be spent by alumni of the Saul Alinsky school of radical community organizing and/or the Chicago Democratic machine. We're indebted to Pamela Geller of AtlasShrugs.com for exposing the shocking use of some of these funds.

Obama is using the public schools to recruit a private army of high-schoolers to "build on the movement that elected President Obama by empowering students across the country to help us bring about our agenda." We now know that Obama's "agenda" is to move the United States into European-style Socialism.

Obama's internet outreach during his campaign, Obama for America, has been renamed Organizing for America (OFA) in order to recruit students to join a cult of Obama and become activists for his goals. Geller discovered that the teacher of an 11th-grade government class in Massillon, Ohio, passed out the sign-up sheet, headed with Obama's "O" logo, asking students to become interns for Organizing for America.

These interns will be given an intensive nine-week training course using comprehensive lesson plans. Assigned readings include Saul Alinsky's notorious Rules for Radicals, Stir It Up: Lessons from Community Organizing and Advocacy by the left-wing activist Rinku Sen, and particular sections of Dreams From My Father dealing with Obama's days as a community organizer in Chicago.

Republican students will be filtered out of the intern program by requiring applicants to answer questions that reveal their politics. One example is, "What one issue facing our country is important to you and why?"

Geller said the purpose of this training to become Alinsky-style community organizers, is "of course, to elect more Democrats." The internship program is specifically geared to get the kids working in the 2010 elections.

The sign-up sheet for Organizing for America starts with this instruction: "Organizing for America, the successor organization to Obama for America, is building on the movement that elected President Obama by empowering students across the country to help us bring about our agenda of change." The application explains that this national internship program is "working to make the change we fought so hard for in 2008 a reality in 2010 and beyond."

This is not the first time Obama has tried to enlist schoolchildren into an Obama cult. Last fall, the instructions mailed to every school by Secretary of Education Arne Duncan added a very political dimension to Obama's speech that was broadcast to public school children on September 8.

Geller explained the extensive political dimension of the new intern program. The OFA student interns will be trained in the goals and language of the left: "anti-war agitation, anti-capitalism, Marx, Lenin, [Bill] Ayers, LGBT agenda promotion, global warming, soft-on-jihad, and illegal immigration."

Another item on OFA's reading list is The New Organizers by Zack Exley. It brags about "an insurgent generation of organizers" inside the Obama campaign that has "almost without anyone noticing ... built the Progressive movement a brand new and potentially durable people's organization, in a dozen states, rooted at the neighborhood level."

The ten-page "National Intern Organizer Curriculum" is very specific in describing the tactics that interns will be taught. It includes these components: "Using Story as an Organizing Tool, Building Relationships and Building Teams, Mobilizing to Win On the Issues (issue advocacy), Health Care Service Project."

Passage of Obamacare is one of this intern project's major goals. The curriculum promises to provide "insight on the strategy and plan behind the health care campaign" and "further motivate them to work on the issue."

The sign-up sheet states that the "purpose" of training these students is "to build community" among the interns and teach them "to be leaders in OFA's organizing work." After all, Barack Obama knows a great deal about being a community organizer; that was his only job before he got into politics.

Job prospects may be bleak for many Americans, but they will be rosy for alumni of Obama's intern program. After the students have been fully trained as Alinsky-style community organizers, they will be eligible for jobs in Senior Corps, AmeriCorps, or Learn and Serve America.

Those three so-called "service" organizations, which annually dole out millions of dollars to left-wing groups, are overseen by the Corporation for National and Community Service. The U.S. Senate just confirmed this Corporation's new chief executive, Patrick Corvington, who was a senior official of the Annie E. Casey Foundation, which has given over a million and a half dollars to the ACORN network of organizations.

Dossier on Barack Hussein Obana, II a.k.a. Barry Soetoro

  
What do you know about the person who occupies The White House? The following video contains the complete dossier on Barack Hussein Obama, II a.k.a. Barry Soetoro based upon acknowledged records available at this time. The list of official background documents on Barack Hussein Obama, II that has never been released to the public include his kindergarten records, Punahou school records, Occidental College records, Columbia University records, Columbia thesis, Harvard Law School records, Harvard Law Review articles, scholarly articles from the University of Chicago, passport, medical records, files from his years as an Illinois state senator where his public voting record shows he cast 125 votes as "Present" for a variety of bills, his Illinois State Bar Association records, any baptism records and his adoption records.
Obama for America, Obama's 2008 political campaign, merged with the Democratic National Committee in January and is now known as Organizing for America. The grass-roots army that some refer to as "Obama 2.0" is still collecting financial contributions. Federal Election Commission records for "Obama for America" show that the lobby organization has paid international law firm Perkins Coie exactly $1,666,397.01 since the 2008 election as of the FEC report dated September 30, 2009 to maintain the secrecy of the Obama records in numerous court cases seeking these hidden records.
According to the conservative web site WorldNet Daily Perkins Coie serves high-profile clients such as Microsoft, Amazon and Starbucks. Perkins Coie also represents the House and Senate Democratic campaign arms. In 2006, the firm also represented Salim Ahmed Hamdan, Osama bin Laden's alleged bodyguard and driver.
The FEC allows elected officials to use campaign funds to pay legal fees only if the action/investigations arise as a result of their tenure in office or campaigns, according to Politico. An FEC report also reveals Obama For America also paid $6,365 in legal fees to Olaker, Biden & Belair, a firm founded by Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden.

Radical Muslim terrorists training on American soil.

It has been know by our government for some time now that militant Islamic radicals have established training camps in America. I posted some of this information last year. See my post  Wednesday, December 23, 2009, Muslim terrorist training camp in New York is quiet. Where did all the terrorists go

Now, a web site called Shock Military.com has posted a segment from FOX News with Sean Hannity interviewing Martin Mawyer from Christian Action.org showing a video made by the terrorists themselves in these training camps.


Please note the answer to the question about how can our government allow these terrorists training camps to exist on our soil. Because they have a right under the Constitution!!! Does this make you wonder who the real target of The Patriot Act really is? Department of Homeland Security publishes a list defining conservative groups as being domestic terrorists but does nothing about the actual Muslim terrorists training with military tactics in America.
What is wrong with the Patriot Act.  Who or what you call a terrorist is not the same as   what the Dept. of Homeland Security calls a terrorist. When you think  of a  terrorist you probably have in mind the radical Muslims who  attacked America  on Sept. 11, 2001. These people are whom the original  Patriot Act was designed  to go after. But the Patriot Act is simply a tool that provides law enforcement extra special powers, it is up to  the government to define who those powers will be used against. It is like a powerful weapon that a good person carries but then it falls  into the hands of someone who is not a good person. 
You have probably heard about the Department of  Homeland Security’s controversial document that was published last year (U//FOUO) Rightwing Extremism: Current  Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment. It is available here: http://www.fas.org/irp/eprint/rightwing.pdf  Two weeks before this was published, Dept. of Homeland  Security  published a document called (U//FOUO)  Domestic Extremism  Lexicon, available here: http://www.tdbimg.com/files/2009/04/30/-hsra-domestic-extremism-lexicon_165213935473.pdf

The DHS document also includes  precursors to the ill-fated "Right-wing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate  Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment" report, which prompted outrage from legislators and a campaign calling for the resignation of DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano. For example, the lexicon contains virtually the same  broad-stroke language the right-wing extremism report used. And all right-wing extremists are considered domestic terrorists "Right-wing extremism," the lexicon defines as those "who can be broadly divided into those who are primarily hate-oriented, and those who are mainly anti-government and reject federal authority in favor of state or local authority. This term also may refer to right-wing extremist movements that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration.
The left-wing Democrats in Washington want to tie all their plans into a neat bundle. Make no mistake, Disarming Americans is an important part of that plan. Taking into consideration that DHS has virtually declared that you and I are both “Right Wing Extremists” now consider that Attorney General Eric Holder has proposed legislation to prohibit any person considered a domestic terrorist or right-wing extremist from owning a firearm. My guess is that thanks to the Political Correctness in Washington, Eric Holder's plan doesn't prohibit Islamic terrorists from owning guns because they are not mentioned in the DHS lexicon.

The dark horse candidate in Kentucky is breaking out of the pack.

 

February 14, 2010

http://www.bluegrassbulletin.com/2010/02/is-there-a-fascinating-story-developing-in-kentucky.html

Is There A Fascinating Story Developing In Kentucky?

The Republican primary race for the US Senate in Kentucky has all of the ingredients for the development of a fascinating story which could suddenly capture the attention of the entire nation and give real hope to millions of frustrated Americans impatient for real change in Washington.  All the story needs in order for enough people to hear it of course, is for someone to tell it.
It is a story filled with intrigue, and begins with the covert plot to end the career of a United States Senator crafted by none other than the most powerful republican in America, the senior senator from his own state.
The plot was launched with the help of the chief elections officer of the state, an ivy league banker's son groomed for higher office by the Commonwealth's party elite whose reward was supposed to be the very Senate seat he conspired to clear.
But the plans of the power broker and his hand picked candidate were shaken as political unrest began growing across the nation.  TEA party groups, independent candidates, and even third party candidates, as in NY 23, slowly began awakening ordinary citizens to the promise that real power still resided in the people, and was exercised by their vote.  For once the power of the people threatened an end to the schemes and political games of political insiders which were rapidly becoming despised.
There arose out of that discontent an unprecedented level of support for a first time candidate whose following was dismissed as an insignificant hodgepodge of fringe libertarians, excommunicated republicans and kooky independents.  Confident that the party structure and reliable sources of campaign funds would carry the day, as they always had, the conspirators ignored the growing threat of this new comer.  But then things changed.
The newcomer began raising money from non-traditional sources.  He out worked the establishment ivy leaguer, criss crossing the Commonwealth delivering hundreds of speeches at town hall meetings, Lincoln dinners and other events.  Soon he caught the attention of the national media and in a flurry of appearances on television and radio he caught up with the presumptive nominee in name recognition, and passed him in the polls.
All the while, a third candidate was beginning to attract attention.  He made it clear that if the party wanted an outsider, it wasn't one of the other two.  He pointed out how the establishment candidate was a career politician, and a political opportunist who had no accomplishments outside of politics which would qualify him for such an important role in running our government.  He pointed out how this candidate had been groomed for office by the very officials against whose politics the nation was revolting.  He pointed out how that candidate was once a democrat who had switched parties in order to improve his chances of winning a government paycheck and was now, at best, a moderate. 
As for the challenger who had become the "media darling" this third candidate pointed out how he was not the outsider he claimed to be, that he had worked for, traveled with and involved himself in his father's campaigns for Congress and for the presidency of the United States.  He pointed out how the so called "outsider" and his entire campaign was the product of the Libertarian party in the United States, how his views on issues of importance to conservatives were a moving target, that he had to explain himself too much to be credible and how he was perhaps pursuing an agenda of his own, rather than that of the conservative republicans who were clamoring for a candidate with the same reliable, trusted conservative views of the Senator he would be replacing.
He pointed out that the other two candidates were merely exploiting the opportunity created by the current atmosphere of discontent and neither should be the choice of conservative republicans.  His campaign reminded voters that one of the contenders was born out of democrat politics and was the choice of those whose policies America was rejecting, and that the other was born out of libertarian politics, whose policies conservative republicans would not tolerate having themselves tricked into adopting.
And then something amazing happened.  At Lincoln dinners across the state where all three candidates appeared, the reports started coming back that the third candidate "owned the room".  The state wide newspapers began to report that while the other two candidates sniped at each other, this third candidate received loud applause and was "the clear crowd favorite".  Party leaders began to say that after private conversations with all three candidates the one they trusted most was the guy with no media attention, no big donor base, the guy who has never been involved in a political campaign nor run for office, and who regrettably had little chance to win.
Many began to look carefully at his education, his life work and the principles he articulated and slowly there began to develop a sense that this was the right guy to send to Washington, but that the attention, the money and the organization of the other two made the chance of that seem impossible.
And then the national media took notice, they began to follow his "underdog campaign", support from the other two began to peel away, money began to flow into his campaign and the story being told all across America was how an ordinary citizen, a military man, had once again stepped up when his nation needed him and answered the call.  Before long people were donating to his campaign.  He became the focus of the national media.  His story of rising from nowhere to having the potential to win gave hope to millions.  His message was clear and millions saw him as the embodiment of the American success story, and he won the nomination.
Of course the paragraph next above is the only one which is not yet fact.  But don't you think this is a fascinating story which is developing right here in Kentucky?
Tune in tonight at 6pm eastern to "The Marcus Carey Perspective" at RFCradio.com, where my guest will be former legislative director and chief counsel to then Congressman, later US Senator and baseball hall of fame pitcher Jim Bunning, Rick Robinson.  Rick was a Congressional candidate himself and is now the author of two books Sniper Bid and The Maximum Contribution.  We will be discussing what some have said could be the battle for the heart and soul of the republican party being waged right here, in Kentucky, this year.
Be sure to log on and join us in the chat room.  You won't want to miss this one.

What is wrong with the Patriot Act.

   
Who or what you call a terrorist is not the same as what the Dept. of Homeland Security calls a terrorist.

The DHS document (U//FOUO) Domestic Extremism Lexicon also includes precursors to the ill-fated "Right-wing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment" report, which prompted outrage from legislators and a campaign calling for the resignation of DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano.

Taking into consideration that DHS has virtually declared that you and I are both “Right Wing Extremists” now consider that Atty Gen. Eric Holder has proposed legislation to prohibit any person considered a domestic terrorist or rightwing extremist from owning a firearm.
Now a few examples of how it has been used:
The Patriot Act: Targeting American Citizens
The party line often heard from Neo-Cons in their attempts to defend the Patriot Act either circulate around the contention that the use of the Patriot Act has never been abused or that it isn't being used against American citizens.
Here is an archive of articles that disproves both of these fallacies.
---------------------
So far as she knows, Pufferbelly Toys owner Stephanie Cox hasn't been passing any state secrets to sinister foreign governments, or violating obscure clauses in the Patriot Act.
The Bush administration is developing a parallel legal system in which terrorism suspects -- U.S. citizens and noncitizens alike -- may be investigated, jailed, interrogated, tried and punished without legal protections guaranteed by the ordinary system, lawyers inside and outside the government say.
A federal appeals court today ruled that the government has properly detained an American-born man captured with Taliban forces in Afghanistan without an attorney and has legally declared him an enemy combatant.
It appears that they may be using the Patriot Act to circumvent some of the civil rights protections laid down in the 60s. You see, it is illegal for a government agency to go in and demand the list of all the members of a group. And you can't investigate leaks to journalists by going in and grabbing the reporter's computer.
Chuck Clark wasn't even home when law enforcement personnel assigned to the Joint Terrorism Task Force roared up to his rented trailer in tiny Rachel, Nev., the other day. He didn't know about the still-sealed search warrant until he returned from a road trip and found that his files, photos and computer had been seized.
Some teachers in Oakland are rallying behind two students who were interrogated by the Secret Service. That followed remarks the teenagers made about the President during a class discussion. The incident has many people angry. It's good to see the real terrorists are being hunted down.
A 12-year-old kid at Boys' Latin researches a paper on the Bay Bridge, and suddenly the Joint Terrorist Task Force shows up in the headmaster's office.
A Denver photographer was arrested while taking pictures in Denver, during Vice President Dick Cheney's visit to the city. Denver resident Mike Maginnis reports being physically assaulted by Denver police.
The FBI used the USA Patriot Act to obtain financial information about key figures in a political corruption probe centered on striptease club owner Michael Galardi, an agent said.
Patriot Act increasingly used against common criminals (expired link)
In the two years since law enforcement agencies gained fresh powers to help them track down and punish terrorists, police and prosecutors have increasingly turned the force of the new laws not on al-Qaida cells but on people charged with common crimes.
Patriot Act available against many types of criminals (expired link)
Virtually unmentioned, however, is the fact that the Patriot Act extended the government's powers well beyond the terrorism arena.
Overall, the policy now allows evidence to be used for prosecuting common criminals even when obtained under extraordinary anti-terrorism powers and information-sharing between intelligence agencies and the FBI.
Patriot Act's reach has gone beyond terrorism (expired link)
The Bush administration, which calls the USA Patriot Act perhaps its most essential tool in fighting terrorists, has begun using the law with increasing frequency in many criminal investigations that have little or no connection to terrorism.
The Patriot Act has been used to obtain search warrants against doctors and scientists who had been warning about the threat of bioterrorism in the U.S.
On May 10 Steven Kurtz went to bed a married art professor. On May 11 he woke up a widower. By the afternoon he was under federal investigation for bioterrorism.
The CIA contract employee accused of abusing a prisoner in Afghanistan is being prosecuted under the Patriot Act in what legal experts are calling a surprising and to some, troubling application of the new anti-terrorism law.
Where were you these past three years while, amid considerable publicity, our government was imprisoning people without making charges against them, holding them without trials, and not allowing them to talk to attorneys?
When writer Elena Lappin flew to LA, she dreamed of a sunkissed, laid-back city. But that was before airport officials decided to detain her as a threat to security.

Quoted from Breitbart.com http://www.breitbart.com/article.php?id=D9ANVQ505&show_article=1
The Patriot Act has the authority to access business records, as well as monitor so-called "lone wolf" terrorists and conduct roving wiretaps.

The provision on business records was long criticized by rights groups as giving the government access to citizens' library records, and a coalition of liberal and conservative groups complained that the Patriot Act gives the government too much authority to snoop into Americans' private lives.

The lone wolf provision was created to conduct surveillance on suspects with no known link to foreign governments or terrorist groups. It has never been used, but the administration says it should still be available for future investigations.
Quoted from WorldNet Daily News
http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=101608
Richard Thompson, president of the Thomas More Law Center, has told WND that as part of his organization's research for its lawsuit over the DHS "extremism" report, it has discovered additional information that it is withholding now but will include in a pending amended complaint.

Thompson said one of the things that sparked the organization's curiosity was a reference by DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano in the original report to not only government resources but also non-governmental resources.

Thompson said the information he has "creates even more concern that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is unconstitutionally targeting Americans merely because of their conservative beliefs."

On the website of the Southern Poverty Law Center, an Alabama-based activist group that leans strongly left, there are boasts about the organization's effort to "train" a number of "local, state and federal law enforcement officers" about terror suspects, "hate crimes" and similar topics.

* Oppose abortion
* Oppose same-sex marriage
* Oppose restrictions on firearms
* Oppose lax immigration laws
* Oppose the policies of President Obama regarding immigration, citizenship, and the expansion of social programs
* Oppose continuation of free trade agreements
* Are suspect of foreign regimes
* Fear Communist regimes
* Oppose a "one world" government
* Bemoan the decline of U.S. stature in the world
* Are upset with loss of U.S. manufacturing jobs to China and India, and more

Democrats are leaving their sinking ship.

Do you remember my post from last year (reprinted below) on the Pink Slips campaign started by WorldNet Daily News? The campaign delivered over 10-million Pink Slips to every member of Congress putting them on notice that they were going to get "Fired" by the voters who hired them if they continued to destroy our liberties and bankrupt our country. While there was very little coverage about this in the mainstream news media there were several reports on conservative web sites about members of Congress overheard in the hallways talking about the huge piles of Pink Slips they had received. And to date several Democrats have announced they have reconsidered their plans to run for re-election. The latest is Democrat Patrick Kennedy, Congressman from Rhode Island and son of the late Sen. Ted Kennedy, who recently announced he won't run for re-election in November so he can spend more time with his family and working on his substance abuse problem. I don't know what sort of substance abuse he has but I am willing to bet he, like many other Democrats, is addicted to power and have just seen the writing on the wall.
USA Today writes: 
A week ago, the Boston Herald's Hillary Chabot wrote that the "Kennedy political dynasty is shaking in the aftermath of the U.S. Sen. Scott Brown earth-shattering election" in Massachusetts. The article -- Kennedys shaken as GOP eyes R.I. too -- was written after a new poll showed Kennedy's popularity falling in Rhode Island.
The WPVI-TV poll showed 62% of Rhode Island voters surveyed gave him an unfavorable job approval rating and only 35% said they would vote to re-elect him.
Politico reports:
The son of the late Sen. Ted Kennedy says a Republican victory in the race for his father's Senate seat is a sign that the American public is out for "blood."
As of today we have at least two Democrat Senators and more than half a dozen Democrat Congressman have decided to change their careers and leave national politics. Good riddance to them all. When 2-million Americans from every part of the country traveled to Washington, D.C. on September 12th last year as part of the Take Back America campaign, the TEA Party movement exploded everywhere. The conservative tidal wave has been sweeping across the nation upsetting one Democratic stronghold after another. The dramatic events in Massachusetts last November seems to have been the catalyst that has sent shock waves through the liberal establishment.

Update on Pink Slips sent to Congress - now more than 7 million

If you ever wondered about the power of the press to affect public opinion here is a perfect example. Four days ago a group promoting a campaign to Take Back America announced in Washington, D.C. their mailing program to deliver Pink Slips to every member of the Senate and House of Representatives to warn them that they work for the American taxpayer had successfully delivered 5-million Pink Slips. That total breaks down to a stack of Pink Slips over 5-feet tall for every lawmaker. The press conference was held on the steps of the Capitol building and was covered by several news media stations.

After the word got into the newspapers and on TV, the public interest in this campaign has resulted in an additional 2-million Pink Slips being ordered for delivery in just three days. That means there have been over 7-million Pink Slips either delivered or on their way.

The mainstream news media had largely ignored this campaign during the first 5 weeks since it began and only word of mouth and a few conservative blogs managed to get the news out. But in three days after the story became public the campaign exploded.

Here is my original post.

5-million Pink Slips delivered to Congress  

A press conference held outside the Capitol Building in Washington, D.C. yesterday announced that the campaign to Take Back America has delivered over 5-million Pink Slips to Congress. Every Senator and Congressman has received a stack of these Pink Slips over 5 feet tall warning them that their votes for high-cost spending bills will result in their getting "fired" by the taxpayers who employ them.

Janet Porter, founder and president of Faith2Action and one of the organizers behind the "pink slips" campaign, was at a news conference today in Washington where U.S. Reps. Michelle Bachmann, R-Minn.; Louie Gohmert, R-Texas; Steve King, R-Iowa; and Trent Franks, R-Ariz., hailed the effort as an innovative new vehicle for the American people to express themselves to members of Congress.

"It's an amazing feat, to get that many slips to Congress," Rep. King told WND. "If you look through them, you can index each one back to an individual.

"That's powerful. There is a person behind each one of the slips," he said.
Additional news coverage has appeared on FOX TV NEWS, video at:

Organizers of 'pink slip' protest claim 5 million sent to Congress
From Paul Courson, CNN
November 17, 2009 4:40 p.m. EST
Washington (CNN) -- Voters disappointed over health care and other legislative efforts have now sent 5 million "pink slips" to members of Congress, the conservative Web site WorldNetDaily said Tuesday.

Several Republican lawmakers joined WorldNetDaily figures to endorse the campaign Tuesday on Capitol Hill.

"These pink slips are a call for fiscally responsible and constitutionally responsible Americans," said Rep. Steve King of Iowa.

A pink slip is symbolic of job dismissal, a theme not lost on Rep. Trent Franks, R-Arizona, who said members need to vote the will of the people or be fired in the next election.

Avatar, the movie. The good, the bad and the ugly.

THE GOOD: I anxiously awaited the opportunity to go and see James Cameron's latest sci-fi epic Avatar. I was not disappointed. This movie is a masterpiece with a complex story about humans from a future America, driven by greed and profit, who are mining a rare element needed for industrial purposes back on Earth. The planet called Pandora, that contains this rare substance is a sight to behold with all its unique natural beauty but it is populated by a race of beings, the Na'vi,  that have little or no technology and are spiritually entwined with the natural forces of their planet. The planet is also extremely toxic to humans who are only able to work on the surface using genetically created avatars, virtually identical to the inhabitants. The story begins well after the mining operation has begun and the humans have already constructed immense scientific laboratories along with their gigantic excavating equipment. The mining operation is protected by a quasi-military army of mercenaries. The latest member of this force is a wheelchair-bound ex-marine named Jake who was a last minute fill-in for his deceased brother. Seems the avatars are created using DNA from their human partners and the ex-marine's DNA was a match for his brother's avatar. The blend of photo-realistic animation along with live acting is the most amazing thing I've ever seen. While sitting in the theater watching this film I easily understood why it took so long to make.

I was already a big fan of James Cameron since I have several of his movies in my sci-fi movie collection so I watched this movie with a favorable bias. Cameron gave us The Abyss, Aliens and the first two Terminator films which were all some of the best sci-fi ever produced. It has been said that James Cameron started working on Avatar soon after he finished making Titanic over ten years ago. The level of technology required to complete his vision did not exist so he literally had to invent some of it. Those who enjoy sci-fi movies know that these kind of films do not get reviewed as fairly as others. Professional film critics often judge a sci-fi movie by the standards one would compare a script to Shakespeare. While dialog and plot are important it is the quality of the spectacle that counts the most and James Cameron has provided the highest quality of both by giving us a complex story that is well written along with an eye-popping visual extravaganza. 

THE BAD: For some weird reason Avatar has attracted dozens of critics who have condemned this film for being everything from anti-American, to anti-religious, to even pro-communist and almost any other detracting sentiment you can think of. The movie takes place almost two centuries in the future in a time no one can contemplate so because the human characters were American and they were the bad guys the movie was anti-American. If this comparison is justified then every film that depicts bad politicians or evil government assassins should also be anti-American. Because the native inhabitants communed with nature on a level of connectivity we cannot fathom does not make this an anti-religious movie. That religious angle was offered up by a preacher, by the way, who probably saw sin and corruption everywhere he looked. As far as the pro-communist complaint, that was probably the result of the way the alien inhabitants lived. These disparaging remarks haven't convinced anyone from staying away as this film has just surpassed the box office record set by Cameron's other epic, Titanic. I don't know anything about James Cameron's politics, religion or lifestyle and I don't care about them either. I am a patriotic, conservative, Christian Republican and I loved this movie in spite of what others have said.

THE UGLY: There is only one part of this movie that I did not like and it was the presentation in 3-D. I have not seen a 3-D movie in over 50 years and back then it involved wearing cardboard eyeglasses with red and green lenses. This modern version of 3-D uses gray polarized lenses and while the 3-D effect works the glasses dim the vivid images on the screen. I plan on seeing this movie once more in the theater in the 2-D version and I look forward to later this year to being able to buy the 2-D version in Blu-Ray. I also hope that now that James Cameron has the time maybe he will make a Blu-Ray issue of Titanic.

Black Republican Women say OBAMA IS OUR PROBLEM

 

There is no better conservative than a black conservative. Having the guts to go against the majority African-American population is courage beyond imagination. Taking on Islam as well makes this group worthy of our greatest respect and admiration.

Here is one of the posts from their website. Be sure to check it out: blackrepublicanwomenunite.wordpress.com

OBAMA IS OUR PROBLEM

Conservatives are called many names by the left and the uninformed. The favorites are “Nazi,” “fascist,” “racist,” “bigot,” “alarmist,” “neo-con,” “mysogonist,” “homophobe”: you name it, we’ve been called it. I take those names in stride knowing full well that the historical knowledge necessary to use big words like “Nazi” and “fascist” are beyond the mental capabilities of 97.4% of libs. When they put down their coloring books and crayons, and turn off Air America or The Teletubbies, they tend to whine and whine and whine, get in touch with their feelings, eat tofu, and yell “it’s not fair!” for hours on end. After all that hard work, they don’t have a lot of time left to read and think and analyze — not that they’d have the inclination to that in the first place, of course.
Real conservatives, conservatives who believe in the libertarian tenets of the Founding Fathers, believe that we the people must be protected from government. Hence, our Constitution has ten enumerated amendments that do just that: put limits on what the government cannot do to it’s citizens. The Bill of Rights*, therefore, should prevent the government from interfering in my life, as long as I am law-abiding and I do not interfere with someone else’s rights. Those same rights should should be granted to businesses, as well. Political correctness by Barack HUSSEIN Obama, is killing Americans and our Military daily. Take the Fort Hood Shooter or the Christmas Day Bomber. Hasan and Abdulmobamaba were both al-Quaeda agents. Evidently all the Army Generals that told US to move along, do not be anti-Muslim here, were just being politically correct. It is the rules of engagement that will give our enemy victory. That and their Satanic Verses.
The worst part of the all is that the Muslim priest survived our drone. Do we still have a CIA? Why is this guy still alive? Why did we elect a Muslim Kenyan-Indonesian president? Why when TSA kept Americans hours and hours at airport security the people concluded is that it was all Bush’e fault and went ahead and elected a Marxist?
Islam is a political system, not a religion. To say it is inappropriately gives it legitimacy under freedom of religion laws. The religious aspects of Islam are a thinly-veiled, made-up compilation of area religions of the time: Christianity, Judaism, and various local pagan/tribal faiths. But the “faith” is just a sugar coating over a cake of poison.

This country will not be free of terrorism until we act on the knowledge that Islam is a political system on a collision course with the rest of the world. It is fundamentally incompatible–I don’t care how “moderate” or “non-practicing” a Muslim is–with modern society. Islam is quite simply the enemy, and all its adherents should be treated so, no matter how “nice” or “normal” or “Westernized” they seem.
Until we recognize this, no amount of screenings, pat-downs, and other violations of privacy and civil rights will protect us from another bombing, no matter how “safe” they make us feel. We are merely giving the government more control over the people who least need to be controlled while allowing those who shouldn’t even be in this country to begin with to continue foiling our “security.”
Saddest thing is– most Liberals don’t realize the truth.
You know, I really miss Dubya. A good man and a patriot.

The Obama legacy: Putting context and substance into music.

The age of politics has changed forever with YouTube. Here are two really great videos set to music by some very talented people.

Another chance to STOP The Patriot Act.

Taking away our freedoms is not Patriotic.  In fact, there is nothing more un-American.

The badly misnamed Patriot Act is not the Act of Patriots. It is the act of petty tyrants seeking more and more power and control over our country.

Now, ever so quietly, the Obama administration is working with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi to sneak reauthorization of the Patriot Act through without creating a stir among liberty-minded Americans.

We’ve all heard the defenses.  How the Patriot Act was needed to combat “terrorism.”  How it would not be used against U.S. citizens. How it would not be abused.

These lies have all been clearly exposed.  For eight years, the American people have ignored the wisdom of our founding fathers and traded freedom for security – and as predicted, we are losing both as a result.

And now, Congress and the White House are set to reauthorize the so-called Patriot Act.

They have until the end of this month to act.  Even talk about a window-dressing “reform” bill has stopped.  The Mainstream Media, fixated on Obama and tea party rallies, doesn’t say a word about it.

Frankly, the Patriot Act should be scrapped, or at least massively re-written to block federal snoops from casting fishing nets over the lives, histories and data of hard-working Americans.


If we do not stop this reauthorization, we’ll see a whole lot more of what we’ve gotten over the last eight years:
*** Federal and State law enforcement on fishing expeditions, searching telephone, email, medical, financial, and other records looking for a needle in a haystack – and abridging the freedom of law abiding citizens everywhere.
*** Warrantless searches and roving wiretaps, paying telephone providers for access to TRILLIONS of phone records and ignoring Fourth Amendment protections.
*** Broad powers for the Treasury Department and Immigrations Department to rewrite regulations, access records, and conduct proceedings in secret.
*** Holding American citizens in violation of their constitutional rights simply because someone in the government has declared them an “enemy combatant.”
*** Vast amounts of electronic data on virtually every American swept up by insider arrangements and purchases from phone companies, airlines and other businesses afraid to say no to a government “request.”
As you well know, this isn’t some conspiracy theory. This is happening all around us.

Our federal government is out of control, and every day we see it attempting to abridge more of our constitutional rights.

We know they’d take away our Second Amendment rights in a heartbeat if they could, and we must also remain vigilant to this threat.

They’re spending us and our children into poverty, with crushing trillion dollar deficits.

And they’re allowing the out of control Fed to ruin the dollar and push forward toward the collapse of our currency and way of life.

All of these are vital fights.

But none are more critical at the moment than taking back our freedoms from the statists and power-hungry federal thugs who use the Patriot Act to dig into every aspect of American lives under the false pretense of making us safer.

We cannot be a free nation and have this un-American law on the books.
Public pressure works.  Think of the agenda items that are stalled in Congress in no small part due to pressure from outraged citizens.  Socialized Medicine.  Big Labor’s Card Check.  Gun grabbing bills.  You name it; we’re beating it back.

The time is now to turn our attention to stopping the Patriot Act in its tracks.

The issue already became hot enough that the Senate could only muster a 60 day extension of the bill because of the threat of a Senate filibuster back in December. But now the politicians think all is clear.  There is silence on this issue.

Jack Webb chews out Barack Hussein Obama

I just found a short video parody that shows Jack Webb's television character Detective Joe Friday giving Barack Hussien Obama a few words of advise. I couldn't have said it better. Thanks for the find on Snarky Bytes blog.

Obama shows his real class. One picture says it all.

A few days ago this official White House photo was released to the news media. It shows Barack Hussein Obama reclining in his chair behind his desk in the Oval Office with his feet propped up on the desk. Keep in mind, this was an official White House photo so Obama didn't mind the American public seeing his casual disregard for the historic significance of what he was doing. That desk in the Oval Office is the famous Resolute Desk, a hand-carved masterpiece that was a gift to America from Queen Victoria in 1880 when President Rutherford B. Hayes was in office. 

Now, I don't know how you feel about this, but guests in my house are not allowed to put their feet on the furniture and don't ever forget that Obama doesn't "own" that desk or the "house" it is in. The desk belongs to the people of the United States of America and this crass act is another insult to my country and to the people.  For all of his so-called intelligence and sophistication Obama seems to totally lack the level of dignity and culture one would expect from the leader of the greatest nation on earth. I can't wait for the people to throw this bum out into the street where he came from.

In Kentucky the choice is clear. Bill Johnson is the only true conservative.

We seem to have lost sight of our ability to pick the right people to run our government. Politics seems to be more like business that depends on huge advertising campaigns to sell their product. But does that make the little guy who has some really great ideas less attractive? Let me tell you about the little guy in the Republican primary campaign for U.S. Senate in Kentucky. His name is Bill Johnson. Bill Johnson is The Mouse That Roared.
Bill Johnson was born in Wichita, Kansas, and moved to Hopkinsville, Kentucky, in 1975. After completing elementary through high school in Christian County, Bill attended the University of Kentucky (UK) and graduated in 1988 with a degree in Electrical Engineering. He earned his Masters in Business Administration from The College of William & Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia, in 1995.

While attending UK, Bill was selected for the prestigious U.S. Navy Nuclear Propulsion Program. He was commissioned on September 30, 1988. Bill served onboard the nuclear powered cruiser USS Virginia during the first gulf war. He later served on the staff of the Commander, U.S. Atlantic Fleet, and then onboard the aircraft carrier USS Eisenhower. During his military service, Bill received the Joint Meritorious Unit Award three times, Sea Service Deployment ribbon twice, Southwest Asia Service Medal with bronze star, Coast Guard Special Operations ribbon, National Defense Service Medal, Navy Commendation Medal, Navy Unit Commendation, and Navy Achievement Medal. He received an honorable discharge after 10 years of military service.

Following discharge and accepting a job with General Electric, Bill and his wife Delinda returned home, residing in the Northern Kentucky city of Florence. While at GE, he was a corporate auditor and global information security manager. In addition to GE, Bill has worked for Kroll-O'Gara and Logical IT, both located in Cincinnati. Most recently, Bill was part of an international leadership team at BP, responsible for contracting and buying of over $1.2 billion of 3rd party goods and services. Throughout his career in business, Bill has cut costs, managed multi-million dollar budgets, led international teams, and delivered projects on time.

Bill's military and business leadership has taken him to Cambodia, Malaysia, Singapore, Australia, China, Azerbaijan, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Russia, Greece, Spain, Portugal, Panama, Belgium, India, and Canada. Through these travels, he has interacted with diverse cultures and witnessed first hand why America is the land of opportunity.

Outside of work, Bill has been a pilot since 1984, earning his private and instrument ratings while in high school. A third generation 'aviation enthusiast', he has worked with his father on aviation projects for as long as he can remember. Bill is an Airframe and Power plant aircraft mechanic with over 25 years of aviation experience. He is a member of the Aircraft Owners and Pilot Association (AOPA) and the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA). Bill currently owns a 1963 Meyers 200B and flies about 100 hours per year.

Bill, Delinda, and their two children, Will (age 14) and Julia (age 10), have lived in Elkton, Kentucky, (Todd County) for 6 years. Delinda, a native of Casey County, is a teacher and loving wife. Bill and Delinda recently celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary.
Last year I was almost ready to stay home when it came to vote because John McCain, the Republican candidate for president was such a RINO, a Republican In Name Only, had little track record for being a true conservative. Then McCain brought Alaska Governor Sarah Palin on to his ticket as the Vice Presidential candidate and I was enthralled with her conservative beliefs. Since Palin resigned from office she has been skipping across the country attending book signing events and endorsing a variety of Republican candidates. She impressed me with her support for the true conservative running in the New York 23rd Congressional District race and that candidate was running on the Conservative Party line because the Republican candidate was an outright liberal.

Then Sarah Palin's image became tarnished when she announced that she was going to work for Sen. John McCain's re-election. Now her latest endorsement of Libertarian/Republican Rand Paul for U.S. Senate seat in the upcoming primary in Kentucky has convinced me that she has lost her mind completely.

The three-way primary has a well known Secretary of State Trey Greyson who used to be a Democrat until he switched party registration when Republicans started gaining a strong power base in Kentucky. The second candidate is Dr. Rand Paul, son of Texas Congressman Ron Paul. Aside from running a minimally effective primary campaign for president last year, the only commendable thing Ron Paul has done in Congress was to introduce a bill to audit the Federal Reserve. Everything else he and his son Rand have stood for is right off the Libertarian Party platform. Legalizing abortion and making cocaine and marijuana legal are just a small bit of the larger cesspool of ideas he represents.

Running a genuine grassroots campaign with little more than a statewide base of volunteers is Bill Johnson, a genuine patriotic conservative who talks the same ideas as Ronald Reagan. Take a close look at Bill Johnson's web site  http://www.kentuckybill.com/ and read for yourself what this patriot has to say about his views on government. And read what Debbie Schlussel says about Rand Paul, Bill Johnson's opposition.

Meet Sarah Palin’s Preferred Candidate, the Nutty Rand Paul (Sympathizes w/ Iran, Compared U.S. Troops to Hitler, Etc.)
        By Debbie Schlussel

        Early this morning, I told you about Sarah Palin’s endorsements of and donations to several very questionable candidates.  Foremost among those is Rand Paul, the equally nutty son of Ron Paul. 
        Empty Skirtsuit Sarah Palin Endorses Anti-War, Anti-American, pro-Iran Rand Paul

        Our friend, Sultan Knish a/k/a Daniel Greenfield, has a great piece summarizing the anti-war, anti-Gitmo, pan-terrorist, 9/11 conspiracy theory, pro-Iran, and anti-American views of the Paul son.  He quotes from Paul’s appearances on the openly anti-Semitic Anti-War Radio (owned and run by gay neo-Nazi Justin Raimondo, who frequently bashes me for being Jewish) and Alex Jones shows (Jones is a well known 9/11 Truther and constant basher of “the Zionists”).  In my view, Rand Paul’s presence on these shows alone should disqualify him, but Sarah Palin thinks he’s just wonderful because Sarah Palin doesn’t think.  She’s a dummy, and it’s time her blind worshipers woke up to that, but they refuse to awaken from their slumber.  Does it not bother her that, as the Sultan points out, Rand Paul compared the U.S. military to Hitler?  Hellooooo . . . ?

Rand Paul, Anti-War, Anti-Gitmo and Anti-American

http://sultanknish.blogspot.com/2010/02/rand-paul-anti-war-anti-gitmo-and-anti.html


He's for shutting down Guantanamo Bay and banning the forceful interrogation of Al Queda terrorists. Not only that he would like to see the dangerous terrorists currently held in Guantanamo Bay deported back to their countries of origin, where in his own words, "It’d take them a while to get back over here."

He wants to cut the deficit by cutting defense spending and boasts that if he had been in the Senate, he would have held up the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. He flirts with pro abortion and drug legalization rhetoric. His main spokesman was caught penning satanic anti-Christian lyrics and blaming America for 9/11. In response to this, his campaign manager, suggested there was "truth on both sides".

Barack Obama? Nancy Pelosi? No, Rand Paul, son of Ron Paul who has been a freelance Al Queda spokesman in Congress, currently running in the Republican Senate primary in Kentucky. The mainstream Republican establishment has thrown its support behind Trey Grayson. The local tea party movement has Bill Johnson. Meanwhile the same league of 9/11 Truthers, anti-war radicals and online gambling companies is busy astroturfing for Rand Paul, and filling up his war chest. They're already creating fake websites targeting his opponents.

UPDATE: Obama bows again, this time to an American mayor.

I'm losing track keeping up with every time Barack Hussein Obama bows before some political figure. The other day he did it again. Not only does he bow before heads of state who hold equal stature to his own office but now he has bowed before the mayor of an American city. On Thursday, January 28th, Obama bowed to Tampa, Florida mayor Pam Iorio. Is he really doing this as an act of respect or is there some some physiological problem about him that we do not know about. If this wasn't an actual bow and he wasn't checking his shoe laces then maybe he doesn't have a normal spine like everyone else that prevents him from standing erect on his own two feet.
Photo caption: Obama bows to Tampa, Florida mayor Pam Iorio (1/28/10) 
The web site Zimbio.com reported that Tampa, Florida has for past four years proclaimed November 15th as CAIR Day to honor the Muslim terrorist supporting organization Council on American-Islamic Relations, a group that most likely is dear to the heart of our Great Leader. See story below:
Tampa mayor, Pam Iorio, proclaimed Nov. 15th "CAIR Day"
“By virtue of the authority vested in me as mayor of the city of Tampa, I do hereby proclaim November 15, 2008, as ‘Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) Day’ in the city of Tampa, Florida.”  -- Mayor Pam Iorio.
What is going on, when CAIR, an organization that is an outgrowth of the Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas infrastructure, gets a day named in their honor in Tampa Florida? 
After mounting pressure from concerned citizens who have become aware of the true nature of CAIR's connection with the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas, the terrorist organization, the city of Tampa, Florida discontinued their annual salute to this organization.
Mayor Iorio declines to honor Muslim group
Reported by: Associated Press
Last Update: 6/11/2009 9:51 pm

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Tampa's mayor has decided not to honor a controversial Muslim civil rights group this year.

Mayor Pam Iorio said Thursday she made the decision after hearing from people who complained that the Council on American-Islamic Relations has ties to terrorist groups.
Truth seems to be the most effective means to combat terrorism and when the people are told the truth they will always stand up and be heard. Truth is the best way to muzzle the ignorant supporters of political correctness that refuse to admit the connection between such Islamic groups and the known terrorist network.
