From the time the Pilgrims arrived on American soil, faith in God played an important part in shaping our nation. Images of Moses adorn the Supreme Court in recognition of the Judeo-Christian origin of our laws. But it was Taxes, loss of Liberty and oppression from a mad king that led our Founding Fathers to write The Declaration of Independence and start The American Revolution. Today, those who stand for these ideals no longer call themselves The Silent Majority because we are silent no more.

Wikipedia: In common usage, the word "tyrant" carries connotations of a harsh and cruel ruler who places his or her own interests or the interests of an oligarchy over the best interests of the general population, which the tyrant governs or controls.In the past few years there has been news from around the world about how often citizens of foreign countries have taken up the cause for freedom and opposed tyranny with cell phones and Twitter and Internet news and message boards to connect with others in their fight for liberty. Imagine how difficult the task would be if all their communications were taken away. America is on the brink of just such a revolution and for many years, while our news media has abdicated their journalistic responsibilities for a free press and turned itself into a state-run propaganda machine, the conservative blogs and web sites have continued to uncover the real news. While the truth is being denied and the facts are being hidden by those whose job it was to seek out and reveal them, the Internet has become the source for our most important communications. But now in this year, 2012, when we stand our last chance in November to overthrow the would-be dictators who want to CHANGE America, the tyrants have turned their attention to pulling the plug on the Internet and plunging our movement into darkness.
In recent months there have been several stories regarding threats to free access to The Internet. Read PC Magazine last month,Don't Lose the Internet in July! FBI Repeats DNSChanger Warning

If you've still got DNSChanger on your computer, you could be in for a frustrating summer. The FBI has repeated a warning that as many as half a million computers still infected with the malware could lose their Internet connections on July 9 because the agency is shutting down an expensive workaround to the problem.
The FBI has been running DNS servers since last year to replace malicious servers used by a group of Estonians to conduct an affiliate and referral fee scam made possible by the DNSChanger Trojan, which diverted users seeking legitimate websites to sites the cybergang wanted them to visit in order to collect fees from their traffic.
About 100 servers masquerading as legitimate DNS servers were seized and shut down last November when law enforcement authorities working with the FBI arrested six of the seven individuals in Estonia responsible for infecting millions of Windows and Mac machines worldwide with the DNSChanger Trojan in what they called the "Operation Ghost Click" raid.Two more stories appeared today, one that appears aimed at those freedom fighters opposing the Islamic revolution takeover in the Middle East. The other is about our own government leaders willing to turn over the Internet to the United Nations where a majority of nations are already trying to take away our 2nd Amendment rights.World's most sophisticated cyber weapon burns computers in Middle East
Published May 29, 2012
The Wall Street Journal
Computer malware described as "the most sophisticated cyber weapon yet unleashed" has been uncovered in computers in the Middle East and may have infected machines in Europe, according to reports from antivirus researchers and software makers in Russia, Hungary and Ireland.
The malware, dubbed Worm.Win32.Flame, is unusual in its complexity, size and the multitude of ways it has of harvesting information from an infected computer including keyboard, screen, microphone, storage devices, network, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, USB and system processes.

And from the Conservative Daily:
TELL CONGRESS you will NEVER accept United Nations control of your Constitutional Rights! We are a SOVEREIGN nation!!We are all familiar with the United Nations (UN); ostensibly, a world moderating organization created after World War II to stop conflict and negotiate the issues that affect the world in a non-violent manner. In reality, it is a body that envisions itself as a world governing organization and believes it has the right to control the lives of everyone on the planet; including YOURS.
A careful look at the history of the UN will show the relentless expansion of its powers. Whether we are talking about gun rights, the environment, or technology, the UN continually cloaks its intrusion into our lives by using our own lawmakers to sell out our constitutional rights and United States sovereignty!
Now, the UN is raising the stakes and we MUST push back! Congress is currently discussing a proposal that would allow the UN to regulate and CENSOR the Internet, and with it, our First Amendment rights!! We need YOUR help to stop it!!
You read that correctly, Congress is considering a proposal that would allow the UN to govern, regulate, and censor the internet INSIDE THE UNITED STATES!!! This is as serious as it gets folks, we MUST not allow this to happen. Like Pandora’s Box, once the UN has control over the internal flow of information in the United States, it will NEVER give it up. Our national destiny, once the sole province of citizen voters, will be in the hands of the UN!!
The proposed Global Internet Censorship plan, being backed by Russia, China, and Brazil, would hand over governance and regulatory control of the world’s internet to the UN’s International Telecommunications Union (ITU). The ITU could take over control of YOUR First Amendment Internet rights as soon as December if we don’t stop them!!!
We need your help IMMEDIATELY. Congress will be holding a hearing on Thursday, May 31, 2012 to discuss these issues. We need you and everyone you know to fax Congress and tell them, in no uncertain terms, that ANY Congressman who supports ANY measure that cedes American sovereignty and freedoms to the UN will be kicked out of office in DISGRACE!!
Of particular importance is H.Res. 628, a bill which would PRESERVE our First Amendment Internet rights and would strip Congress of the power to hand over those rights to the UN! This bill was introduced by Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX). Rep. McCaul is a Republican Congressman with a strong conservative record.
We must let Congress know that we will NEVER accept UN control over our constitutionally guaranteed rights! I plead with you to fax Congress and tell them that this is NOT acceptable. The United States is a SOVEREIGN nation; we will not give away our rights!
Did you notice the countries that were backing this global internet censorship proposal? Russia, China, and Brazil; these countries ACTIVELY censor their own citizen’s internet access. Now they want to censor YOURS!!! Why do you think Putin, Hu Jinato, and Chavez are pushing this measure?! Because it will significantly weaken the United States!!
Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) commented on the UN’s proposal earlier this month. Sen. Rubio stated:
“Any place that bans certain terms from a search should not be a leader in international Internet regulatory frameworks”
Sen. Rubio could not be more correct. If the United States agrees to the UN proposal, we WILL be handing our First Amendment rights to UN.As society leans more and more on technology in our day-to-day lives, the internet will continue to grow in importance as more business, government and personal transactions are handled electronically. Is it strategically wise, from a national security stand point, to allow the UN to have so much control over our nation? This must be stopped IMMEDIATELY!!DEMAND that CONGRESS VETOES the UN’s Global Internet Censorship proposal!! We are a SOVEREIGN nation and we will NOT allow the UN to trample our Constitutional rights!!“Treason doth never prospers and here’s the reason why, for if treason were to prosper then None Dare Call It Treason.”May 20, 2012
U.N. Arms Treaty is NOT binding since it violates the Constitution
Most Americans believe a treaty, once ratified, automatically becomes the undisputed law of the land. That belief is not necessarily true.
This is important to understand because Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and presidential usurper Barack Hussein Obama are relying on the proposed United Nations Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) to finally destroy the Second Amendment. Obama and Clinton, along with Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Attorney Gen. Eric Holder are working diligently to strip law abiding Americans of their constitutional right to keep and bear arms.
Any treaty, to be considered legal and binding, must be made UNDER THE AUTHORITY, of the United States.
“From where do the President & the Senate get Authority to act? From The Constitution. The objects of their lawful (as opposed to usurped) powers are enumerated in the Constitution,” according to constitutional scholar and attorney, Publius-Huldah. “Thus, the President & Senate must be authorized in the Constitution to act on a subject before any Treaty made by them on that subject qualifies as part of ‘the supreme Law of the Land.’ If the Constitution does not authorize the President & Congress to act on an object, the Treaty is not ‘Law’ – it is a mere usurpation, and deserves to be treated as such.” Source: http://publiushuldah.wordpress.com/2009/09/
Officials of the federal government are NOT authorized to treaty-away or legislate-away our rights, including our Second Amendment rights. They are, in fact, sworn to uphold, protect and defend our rights. Attacking our Constitution, if it isn’t already, should be treason because it certainly gives aid and comfort to our enemies.
Many Americans have lost sight of the FACT that We The People created the federal government. Since it is our creation, it has no powers other than those WE granted it in the Constitution.
The Constitution wisely put chains on the powers the federal government is allowed to wield.
Thomas Jefferson stated clearly the federal government’s treaty power.In giving to the President and Senate a power to make treaties, the Constitution meant only to authorize them to carry into effect, by way of treaty, any powers they might constitutionally exercise. –The Anas, 1793. ME 1:408Surely the President and Senate cannot do by treaty what the whole government is interdicted from doing in any way. Parliamentary Manual, 1800. ME 2:442It appears Obama, Clinton, Holder and Schumer are intent on destroying the Second Amendment. But the states and people have power to rescind such treason through nullification.(1)(2) More on Nullification, here:
The heart of nullification is embodied in Amendments Nine and Ten and leaves to the states the power to accept or reject a treaty.(1)The Ninth Amendment states, “The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.” It was designed to work with the Tenth Amendment to reinforce limits on the federal government.Jefferson again affirms that the legislature has the ultimate say concerning the implementation of a treaty.
(2)The Tenth Amendment states, “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”We conceive the constitutional doctrine to be, that though the President and Senate have the general power of making treaties, yet wherever they include in a treaty matters confided by the Constitution to the …. Legislature, an act of legislation will be requisite to confirm these articles, and that the House of Representatives, as one branch of the Legislature, are perfectly free to pass the act or to refuse it, governing themselves by their own judgment whether it is for the good of their constituents to let the treaty go into effect or not. –Thomas Jefferson to James Monroe, 1796. ME 9:329 [emphasis added]In addition to international efforts to curtail and/or destroy the 2nd Amendment, yet another cadre of socialists/communists and “progressives,” are working to destroy gun rights from within.
In a May 9,2012 article on PrisonPlanet.com the Congressional Progressive Caucus announced it will introduce legislation designed to strip Americans of the right to defend themselves. Called “Stop Shoot First Laws,” the amendment to the Commerce, Justice, Science Appropriations bill under consideration in the House would deny states federal funding allocated under section 505 of the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act of 1968 if they continue to allow citizens to defend themselves.
“Shoot first laws have already cost too many lives,” said Progressive Caucus co-chairs Keith Ellison and Raul Grijalva said upon introducing their amendment. “In Florida alone, deaths due to self-defense have tripled since the law was enacted. Federal money shouldn’t be spent supporting states with laws that endanger their own people. This is no different than withholding transportation funds from states that don’t enforce seatbelt laws,” the two socialists said.
Democrats are using “Shoot First” instead of “Stand Your Ground” in an effort to portray self defense as homicide. Apparently progressives think it is acceptable for criminals to shoot you but it’s not fair if you shoot back.
“The message here is if you have this kind of law that your federal funding is going to take a hit because they make states less safe,” Adam Sarvana, communications director for Grijalva, told Politico.
In other words, the Democrats would force states to choose between putting their citizens at the mercy of violent criminals or taking federal handouts. This is a dictatorial criminal act called coercion, or forced compliance through intimidation or threat.
The Congressional Progressive Caucus is the largest caucus within the Democratic caucus in Congress. It is supported by the Institute for Policy Studies, MoveOn.org (a George Soros funded group), the NAACP, National Council of La Raza (Soros funded), Hip Hop Caucus (Soros funded), and other liberal and so-called “progressive” organizations.
It appears at this writing that Stand Your Ground will withstand the attack, but it is illustrative of the lengths to which the progressives will stoop to destroy our Constitution, individual rights and freedoms. When it comes to gun rights we must all stand our ground. If the progressives succeed in destroying our gun rights we will all be at the mercy of criminals and government agents (excuse me, I repeat myself)
May I suggest a little history reading? Try out Thomas Paine's The American Crisis. In late 1776 Paine published The American Crisis pamphlet series, to inspire the Americans in their battles against the British army. He juxtaposed the conflict between the good American devoted to civic virtue and the selfish provincial man.To inspire his soldiers, General George Washington had The American Crisis, first Crisis pamphlet, read aloud to them It begins:
These are the times that try men's souls: The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as freedom should not be highly rated.
GOD BLESS AMERICA.
Barack Hussein Obama has been distorting the facts in his own TV ads and with the complacent assistance of the leftist news media, no one has asked any questions. What more can be said of the biggest liar ever seen in American history. Maybe the news media has just gotten used to it but for the rest of us who haven't had our memories dulled by too much reality television, the ads stink like a pile of crap. Funded by billions of dollars in campaign contributions pouring in from every pro-communist, pro-Muslim, America-hating leach, the campaign to reelect Obama has been bombarding us with distortions of the truth. One particular campaign ad has no dialog, just a moving scale of events that illustrates the collapse of our economy beginning in January 2008 and then showing the miraculous turnaround brought about by the Messiah/Muslim-in-Chief.
What is wrong with the ad is where it begins (it begins on the far left and isn't that an appropriate play on words) and the lack of identifying labels to show what caused the collapse that is still being felt. In other words, who drove the truck off the cliff and when did they get behind the wheel.
Seemingly laying the groundwork for an invasion, no one appeared to notice that the news media's concerted effort to make George W. Bush a very unpopular president during his second term, led to a Democratic Party majority getting swept into office during the elections of 2006 and 2008. Along with the Democratic Party majority came the new chairmanships of the various committees that write the vast array of government regulations that burden our lives in every way.
In the Democrat controlled Congress of 2008, two such important committees were the Senate Banking Committee under the leadership of Democrat Senator Chris Dodd and the House Financial Services Committee, led by Democrat Congressman Barney Frank. Together, these two Democrats passed rules and regulations that committed the Federal National Mortgage Association, commonly known as Fanny Mae, and the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation, known as Freddie Mac, to obligate banks to make sub-prime housing loans to people who were judged to be unable to afford them. An article from the British newspaper, The Independent, tells the whole story.Thursday, October 09, 2008
Barney Frank and Christopher Dodd deserve blame for Fannie and FreddieThe Independent, a British newspaper, blames the Democrats for the failure of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac:
What is the proximate cause of the collapse of confidence in the world's banks? Millions of improvident loans to American housebuyers. Which organisations were on their own responsible for guaranteeing half of this $12 trillion market? Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, the so-called Government Sponsored Enterprises which last month were formally nationalised to prevent their immediate and catastrophic collapse. Now, who do you think were among the leading figures blocking all the earlier attempts by President Bush — and other Republicans — to bring these lending behemoths under greater regulatory control? Step forward, Barney Frank and Chris Dodd.
In September 2003 the Bush administration launched a measure to bring Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac under stricter regulatory control, after a report by outside investigators established that they were not adequately hedging against risks and that Fannie Mae in particular had scandalously mis-stated its accounts. In 2006, it was revealed that Fannie Mae had overstated its earnings — to which its senior executives' bonuses were linked — by a stunning $9.3billion. Between 1998 and 2003, Fannie Mae's executive chairman, Franklin Raines, picked up over $90m in bonuses and stock options.
Yet Barney Frank and his chums blocked all Bush's attempts to put a rein on Raines. During the House Financial Services Committee hearing following Bush's initiative, Frank declared: "The more people exaggerate a threat of safety and soundness [at Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae], the more people conjure up the possibility of serious financial losses to the Treasury which I do not see. I think we see entities that are fundamentally sound financially." His colleague on the committee, the California Democrat Maxine Walters, said: "There were nearly a dozen hearings where we were trying to fix something that wasn't broke. Mr Chairman, we do not have a crisis at Freddie Mac and particularly at Fannie Mae under the outstanding leadership of Mr Franklin Raines."
When Mr Raines himself was challenged by the Republican Christopher Shays, to the effect that his ratio of capital to assets (that is, mortgages) of 3 per cent was dangerously low, the Fannie Mae boss retorted that "our assets are so riskless, we could have a capital ratio of under 2 per cent".The web site Politico reported this on October 9, 2008 in a story written by Patrick O'Connor & Amie Parnes:"During a town hall in Wisconsin on Thursday, McCain called Senate Banking Chairman Christopher J. Dodd (Conn.) and House Financial Services Chairman Barney Frank (Mass.) “willing co-conspirators” in the current financial collapse. "
"This comes as conservative talk radio hosts and an outside group aligned with the GOP accuse the duo of similar crimes against the economy, particularly an allegation that congressional Democrats blocked legislation to increase regulations and oversight for mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac."
"The fact is that the same people that are now claiming credit for this rescue are the same ones that were willing co-conspirators in causing the problem,” McCain told supporters at a town hall meeting in Waukesha, Wis., on Thursday. “Congressman Barney Frank and Senator Chris Dodd are two of them.''Nothing new there. The Democrats are STILL claiming credit for fixing the mess they caused six years ago. Did I misquote the years? No, because in 2006 the Democrats took control of both houses of Congress following a sweeping victory in the mid-term elections and they used their veto proof majority to ram through changes in the banking regulations to allow people who could not afford mortgages to get them, and hundreds of thousands did, and many more subsequently lost their homes in the foreclosure problem that brought down the banks. All the while Republican George W. Bush was catching the blame for what the Democrats had done. And for whom Democrat Barack Hussein Obama has been blaming for all our troubles for the last four years.
Which brings us up to date. So now, in Iowa, Democrat Barack Hussein Obama calls Mitt Romney's words 'A Cow Pie of Distortion'"I know Gov. Romney came to Des Moines last week and warned about 'a prairie fire of debt'," Obama said Thursday evening. "But he left out some facts. His speech was more like a cow pie of distortion."Want to know what a real “cow pie of distortion” looks like? Take a good look at the latest TV commercial that Barack Hussein Obama has been passing around. That red graph following January 2008 at the start of the ad was all caused by the Democrats.Barack Hussein Obama's delusions of grandeur make him the biggest pile of cow poop in Washington. And Obama, along with the 88 Congressional members of the Democratic Socialists of America, are at the center of the problem. In plain language folks, Obama is a piece of shit and he and the rest of the Democrats in Washington should all be flushed down the toilet.
The two illustrations above came from a YouTube post "Published on May 10, 2012 by BarackObamadotcom " The post carries a subtext message that says: "Remember how things were? Do we really want to reverse course now?" Funny as to how I do remember how things were and how good they were before Barack Obama got into politics and YES, I do want to reverse course now. I also happen to know that the FORWARD message also being promoted as Obama's campaign slogan was copied from a whole bunch of Communist propaganda.
My name is Nelson Abdullah and I am Oldironsides.
On August 13, 2009, JB Williams of the Canada Free Press wrote the following:
“After decades of failed attempts to take over America via their third party initiatives that couldn’t break America’s two party system, leaders of both the Communist Party USA and Socialist Party USA chose a new strategy.
“Both being the ultimate ‘party of the working class stiff,’ they joined forces in a new venture that would work within the US two party system, by hijacking control of one of the two primary parties. As the Democrat Party had already spent years identifying itself as the “party of the working class,” engaging in socio-economic class warfare as its primary method for expanding its political power, it was ripe for the hijacking.
“Together, Communist Party and Socialist Party leaders established the Democratic Socialists of America, and they share a common ideology which is now the platform and mantra of today’s DNC – CPUSA.
“To gain full control of the Democrat Party, DSA leadership established two congressional legislative bodies, headed by DSA/CPUSA/SPUSA members. Today, these are the two congressional bodies in control of congress.
“They are the Congressional Progressive Caucus established by Socialist Party member Bernie Sanders of Vermont, and the Congressional Black Caucus established by Communist Party member John Conyers of Michigan. “ALL members of these two congressional committees represent the Democratic Socialists of America, as both committees are the creation of, and operate under the control of DSAUSA.”
Remember the guy who wouldn't take the flag down? You might remember a news story a few years ago about a crotchety old man who defied his homeowners association and refused to take down the flagpole on his property and the large flag that flew on it. Now you can find out who, exactly, that old man was.
Van Thomas Barfoot (born Van Thurman Barfoot; June 15, 1919 – March 2, 2012) was a United States Army officer and a recipient of the United States military's highest decoration — the Medal of Honor — for his actions in World War II.
Barfoot was born on June 15, 1919, in Edinburg, Mississippi. After enlisting in the Army from Carthage, Mississippi, in 1940 and completing his training, Barfoot served with the 1st Infantry Division in Louisiana and Puerto Rico. In December 1941, he was promoted to sergeant and re-assigned to the Headquarters Amphibious Force Atlantic Fleet in Quantico, Virginia, where he served until the unit was deactivated in 1943. He next joined the 157th Infantry Regiment, 45th Infantry Division, and was shipped to Europe.
During the Italian Campaign, Barfoot participated in a series of amphibious landings: the Allied invasion of Sicily in July 1943, the invasion of mainland Italy at Salerno in September, and finally the landings at Anzio in late January 1944. His unit pushed inland from Anzio, and by May 1944 had reached the town of Carano. They set up defensive positions and Barfoot conducted patrols to scout the German lines. When his company was ordered to attack on the morning of May 23, Barfoot, now a technical sergeant, asked for permission to lead a squad. Because of the patrols he had made, he knew the terrain and the minefield which lay in front of the German position. He advanced alone through the minefield, following ditches and depressions, until he came within a few yards of a machine gun on the German flank. After taking out the gun with a hand grenade, he entered the German trench and advanced on a second machine gun, killing two soldiers and capturing three others. When he reached a third gun, the entire crew surrendered to him. Others also surrendered and Barfoot captured a total of seventeen German soldiers and killed eight.
When the Germans launched an armored counterattack later in the day, Barfoot disabled one tank with a bazooka, then advanced into enemy-held territory and destroyed an abandoned German artillery piece. He returned to his own lines and helped two wounded soldiers from his squad escape to the rear.
Barfoot was subsequently commissioned as a second lieutenant. His division moved into France and by September was serving in the Rhone valley. Barfoot learned he would be awarded the Medal of Honor and chose to have the presentation ceremony in the field, so that his soldiers could attend. He was formally presented with the medal on September 28, 1944, in Épinal, France, by Lieutenant General Alexander Patch.
Barfoot was one of the country's last living Medal of Honor recipients from World War II. He also served in the Korean War and the Vietnam War and earned a Purple Heart. He reached the rank of colonel before retiring from the Army. In retirement he lived in Henrico County, Virginia, near his daughter. On October 9, 2009, the portion of Mississippi Highway 16 which runs from Carthage through his hometown of Edinburg to the border between Leake and Neshoba counties was named the "Van T. Barfoot Medal of Honor Highway".
Medal of Honor citation
Flag controversy puts Van T. Barfoot into the national spotlight.Second Lieutenant Barfoot's official Medal of Honor citation reads:
For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of life above and beyond the call of duty on 23 May 1944, near Carano, Italy. With his platoon heavily engaged during an assault against forces well entrenched on commanding ground, 2d Lt. Barfoot (then Tech. Sgt.) moved off alone upon the enemy left flank. He crawled to the proximity of 1 machinegun nest and made a direct hit on it with a hand grenade, killing 2 and wounding 3 Germans. He continued along the German defense line to another machinegun emplacement, and with his Thompson Submachine gun killed 2 and captured 3 soldiers. Members of another enemy machinegun crew then abandoned their position and gave themselves up to Sgt. Barfoot. Leaving the prisoners for his support squad to pick up, he proceeded to mop up positions in the immediate area, capturing more prisoners and bringing his total count to 17. Later that day, after he had reorganized his men and consolidated the newly captured ground, the enemy launched a fierce armored counterattack directly at his platoon positions. Securing a bazooka, Sgt. Barfoot took up an exposed position directly in front of 3 advancing Mark VI tanks. From a distance of 75 yards his first shot destroyed the track of the leading tank, effectively disabling it, while the other 2 changed direction toward the flank. As the crew of the disabled tank dismounted, Sgt. Barfoot killed 3 of them with his tommygun. He continued onward into enemy terrain and destroyed a recently abandoned German fieldpiece with a demolition charge placed in the breech. While returning to his platoon position, Sgt. Barfoot, though greatly fatigued by his Herculean efforts, assisted 2 of his seriously wounded men 1,700 yards to a position of safety. Sgt. Barfoot's extraordinary heroism, demonstration of magnificent valor, and aggressive determination in the face of pointblank fire are a perpetual inspiration to his fellow soldiers.
In December 2009, the homeowners' association (HOA) of the Sussex Square, where Barfoot lived in Henrico County, Virginia, ordered him to remove the flagpole from which he flew the American flag. What did make news was a neighborhood association's quibble with how the 90-year-old veteran chose to fly the American flag outside his suburban Virginia home. Seems the rules said a flag could be flown on a house-mounted bracket, but, for decorum, items such as Barfoot's 21-foot flagpole were unsuitable. He had been denied a permit for the pole, erected it anyway and was facing court action if he didn't take it down. Since the story made national TV, the neighborhood association had rethought its position and agreed to indulge this old hero who dwells among them.
"In the time I have left I plan to continue to fly the American flag without interference," Barfoot told The Associated Press. As well he should. And if any of his neighbors still takes a notion to contest him, they might want to read his Medal of Honor citation. It indicates he's not real good at backing down.
This news story first became public when Barfoot's son-in-law reported the story on local talk radio show, Elliot in the Morning. Fox News and several other national news networks picked up the story. The HOA retained Coates & Davenport to help enforce their order. The association's bylaws do not forbid flagpoles, but the HOA ruled Barfoot, then aged 90, would not be allowed to use it "for aesthetic reasons." Barfoot contested the order, and received widespread public support. Barfoot won when the association dropped its request on December 8, 2009, effectively ending the controversy.

It is the brave members of our Armed Forces like Van T. Barfoot that we remember on Memorial Day.
Obama's Second Term Transformation Plans
BySteve McCann of American Thinker
If Barack Obama is re-elected the United States will never be the same, nor will it be able to re-capture its once lofty status as the most dominant nation in the history of mankind. The overwhelming majority of Americans do not understand that Obama's first term was dedicated to putting in place executive power to enable him and the administration to fulfill the campaign promise of "transforming America" in his second term regardless of which political party controls Congress. That is why his re-election team is virtually ignoring the plight of incumbent or prospective Democratic Party office holders.
The most significant accomplishment of Obama's first term was to make Congress irrelevant. Under the myopic and blindly loyal leadership of Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, the Democrats have succeeded in creating an imperial and, in a second term, a potential dictatorial presidency
During the first two years of the Obama administration when the Democrats overwhelming controlled both Houses of Congress and the media was in an Obama worshiping stupor, a myriad of laws were passed and actions taken which transferred virtually unlimited power to the executive branch.
The birth of multi-thousand page laws was not an aberration. This tactic was adopted so the bureaucracy controlled by Obama appointees would have sole discretion in interpreting vaguely written laws and enforcing thousands of pages of regulations they and not Congress would subsequently write.
For example, in the 2,700 pages of ObamaCare there are more than 2,500 references to the Secretary of Health and Human Services. There are more than 700 instances when he or she is instructed that they "shall" do something and more than 200 times when they "may" take at their sole discretion some form of regulatory action. On 139 occasions, the law mentions that the "Secretary determines." In essence one person, appointed by and reporting to the president, will be in charge of the health care of 310 million Americans once ObamaCare is fully operational in 2014.
Additionally, the Obama administration has, through its unilaterally determined rule making and regulatory powers, created laws out of whole cloth. The Environmental Protection Agency on a near daily basis issues new regulations clearly out of their purview in order to modify and change environmental laws previously passed and to impose a radical green agenda never approved by Congress. The same is true of the Energy and Interior Departments among many others. None of these extra-constitutional actions have been challenged by Congress. The left in America knows this usurpation of power is nearly impossible to reverse unless stopped in its early stages.
It is clearly the mindset of this administration and its appointees that Congress is merely a nuisance and can be ignored after they were able to take full advantage of the useful idiots in the Democrat controlled House and Senate in 2009-2010 and the Democrat Senate in the current Congress.
Additionally, Barack Obama knows after his re-election a Republican controlled House and Senate will not be able to enact any legislation to roll back the power previously granted to the Executive Branch or usurped by them. His veto will not be overridden as there will always be at least 145 Democratic members of the House or 34 in the Senate in agreement with or intimidated by an administration more than willing to use Chicago style political tactics.
The stalemate between the Executive and Legislative Branches will inure to the benefit of Barack Obama and his fellow leftists. The most significant power Congress has is the control of the purse-strings as all spending must be approved by them. However, once re-elected, Barack Obama, as confirmed by his willingness to do or say anything and his unscrupulous re-election tactics, would not only threaten government shutdowns but would deliberately withhold payments to those dependent on government support as a means of intimidating and forcing a Republican controlled Congress to surrender to his demands, thus neutering their ability to control the administration through spending constraints.
Further, this administration has shown contempt for the courts by ignoring various court orders, e.g. the Gulf of Mexico oil drilling moratorium, as well as stonewalling subpoenas and requests issued by Congress. The Eric Holder Justice Department has become the epitome of corruption as part of the most dishonest and deceitful administration in American history. In a second term the arrogance of Barack Obama and his minions will become more blatant as he will not have to be concerned with re-election.
Who will be there to enforce the rule of law, a Supreme Court ruling or the Constitution? No one. Barack Obama and his fellow-travelers will be unchallenged as they run roughshod over the American people.
I want to add only one postscript to this excellent article. I do not disagree with Steve McCann, but while he did a thorough job forecasting the gloom and doom that may be in our future he offered no solutions to the problem. The only way to protect America if Barack Hussein Obama manages to get reelected is to impeach Obama and throw him out of the White House and then put him on trial for his crimes. His list of high crimes and misdemeanors already demand a call for charges of treason. The only thing we need is a strong Republican majority in Congress with the courage to do the right thing.
Everything about the Obama administration seems to be about race and religion so let me begin by reminding you that Barack Hussein Obama appointed Eric Holder, another black man, to be the U.S. Attorney General and head of the Department of Justice. On election day in November in 2010, members of the New Black Panthers were videotaped carrying weapons and intimidating voters going into the polling places in Philadelphia. The investigation was handled by some lawyers in the Justice Dept. who recommended charges be brought but the New Black Panthers were never prosecuted because Attorney General Holder overruled the decision. They were being protected by a sympathetic friendly force.
Back in 2008 during the presidential campaign, Barack Hussein Obama stated that he wanted to create a civilian national security force. In his July 2, 2008 campaign speech in Colorado Springs, Obama insisted the U.S. "cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we've set." The complete statement was: "We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we've set. We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded." Considering the controversial provisions that Barack Hussein Obama wanted to be contained in the National Defense Authorization Act, (NDAA), where he would have the authority to have American citizens arrested and imprisoned without trial or legal representation, groups like the New Black Panthers and the Nation of Islam, led by Louis Farrakhan, who has provided security guards for Obama, all seem to filling the promise Barack Obama made in 2008. Taking Obama's words as he said them, it is altogether possible that he could not rely on the U.S. Armed Forces "to achieve the national security objectives we've set." because too many would refuse to shoot American citizens. And, of course, Obama never revealed what those objectives were.
With such powerful friends in high places the New Black Panthers appear even bolder and more hostile than ever before. Here is a new story taken from the Australian web site Winds of Jihad:

NBPP: ‘Not Hanging Crackers…Yet’
New Black Panther Field Marshal: Whites ‘Should be Thankful We’re Not Hanging Crackers By Nooses…Yet, Yet, Yet’
“We’re taught to send this cracker to the cemetery”
The Blaze’s Erica Ritz contributed to this report.
According to National Field Marshal for the New Black Panthers King Samir Shabazz:
The National Field Marshal for the New Black Panther Party (NBPP), King Samir Shabazz, engaged in multiple vicious tirades on his national radio show this weekend, calling for broad violence against whites.
- “I love white-on white-crime, because that is the best crime.”
- “I hate the g*ddamn white man, woman, and child, grandma, aunt, uncle, Pappa Billy Bob, and whoever else.”
- “You should be thankful we’re not running around here hanging crackers by nooses and all that kind of stuff — yet, yet, yet”
- He has a “wet dream about killing the g*ddamn cracker.”
- “We don’t allow faggots and lesbians” in the New Black Panther Army
- Envisions a world where every black person is “ready to bang on this cracker”
- Wants to take over neighborhoods “block by block” so “crackers…or even the developer” would be scared to come into them
- “We’re taught to send this cracker to the cemetery… so kiss ‘em goodbye”
Shabazz, you may remember, made national news in 2008 when the Department of Justice brought a voter intimidation suit against him and a NBPP accomplice. They got in trouble for wearing Black Panther uniforms and brandishing a police-style baton outside a Philadelphia precinct during the Presidential election. Shabazz was charged on the grounds of violations to the Voting Rights Act.
But on May 29, 2009, against the advice of prosecutors who had worked on the case, the Department of Justice ordered the suit dropped, even though Shabazz and the other defendants in the case refused to appear in federal court.
Hear what DOJ-protected Shabazz now has to say:
Key Shabazz Quotes:
- “[Discussing the movie 'Quilombo'] Any movie that starts off with the killing of peckerwood, I’m locked in and loaded. As I told you, I love white-on white-crime, because that is the best crime, and we‘re going say ’black power’ to that. You understand what I mean?”
- “I love black people, and I hate the g*ddamn white man, woman, and child, grandma, aunt, uncle, Pappa Billy Bob, and whoever else. Redneck Tom and Blueneck Robert, and whoever else you wanna name. I hate the white man. I hate the very look of white people. I hate the sound of white people. G*ddamnit, I hate thesmell of white people. I hate the oppression of white people, I hate the murder and the rape and the torture and the taking away of our names, our culture, our God, our music and damn, I hate this cracker for everything he has done to us.”
- “You should be thankful we’re not running around here hanging crackers by nooses and all that kind of stuff, yet, yet, yet.”
- “Some of us, some of y’all – are even scared to have a wet dream about killing the g*ddamn cracker.”
- “We’re raising men and women in this army, we don’t have time for punks. We don’t allow fa*gots and lesbians in this army– sorry, wrong army. This is for blackliberation, not rainbow liberation.”
- “Just imagine everybody listening right now, you walk outside on your block in your hood, and everybody on your block is now revolutionary. Everybody on your block is ready to bang on this cracker. Can you imagine what kind of community that would be? … That is the kind of community our ancestors would be proud of.”
- “And we‘ll really show this cracker a project that’s behind never wish he would have started. Turn them projects out, because a black power project and no crackers allowed up in here. So much to the point that then their developer will be scared to come in here; we’re taking it. Just like we took our land for our garden, G*damnit, the projects is next. We’re taking it back, block by block, house by house, street by street, hood by hood, town by town, city by city, state by state.”
- “You can fight this white man– and I’m not telling you to go out there and attack nobody– but in self-defense it’s okay to fight back. We’re taught to send this cracker to the cemetery; when he put his hand on us, we send him to the cemetery in self defense. Again, I’m not telling you to attack anyone, but if they put their hands on you and if you are a [unintelligble], and in the name of your creator, and the name of our ancestors, we’re to kiss them goodbye, kiss ‘em goodbye, kiss ‘em goodbye.”

The "Stupid Female Voter" Strategy"Marriage is ... in its origin a contract of natural law... It is the parent, and not the child of society; the source of civility and a sort of seminary of the republic." --Justice Joseph Story
There was much gayety among some political constituencies this week.
In advance of his annual proclamation of June as "National Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) Pride Month," or more accurately, "Gender Confusion Month," Barack Hussein Obama ceremonially announced his support for so-called "gay marriage." I note "ceremonially" because while this purely political announcement had no effect on the legal status of homosexual relationships, it certainly moved the needle to the left in regard to the moral status of such "unions."This proclamation came on the heels of North Carolina joining 29 other states by resoundingly approving a state constitutional amendment affirming the natural definition of marriage. Obama barely won North Carolina in 2008, and Democrats are holding their national convention there this year as they endeavor to retain that state's electoral votes and pick up some around it. Thus, one would think his announcement was ill-timed, unless there is a larger strategy in the works -- and indeed there is.
So why did Obama really go public with his support for the gay marriage agenda?
Certainly not to win the votes of homosexuals -- Obama already has them kowtowing in reverence, particularly after repealing the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" ban, and refusing to enforce the Defense of Marriage Act as duly passed by Congress and signed into law in 1996 by none other than Bill Clinton.
Most certainly not to win the votes of his sycophantic socialist cadres -- they will vote for Obama regardless of his position on social issues as long as his political platform is bent on redistributing wealth from income earners and delivering it to his most loyal constituents, those enslaved on the Democrats' government welfare plantation.
The calculus behind Obama's endorsement of "gay marriage" is twofold. First, he genuinely supports and identifies with homosexuals, and they with him -- indeed one in six of Obama's big-money "bundlers" is homosexual. He first signaled his desire to redefine this building block of human civilization back in 1996. But his identification with homosexuals is subordinate to his second motive, a political calculation that he believes will ensure his 2012 re-election -- and that re-election is critical to his macro agenda of "fundamentally transforming the United States of America."Let's analyze Obama's reasoning on both counts.
Regarding his personal motive for promoting the homosexual agenda, Obama is an archetypal case study of Narcissistic Pathology Disorder, the almost universal underlying pathology of Leftist political leaders. Obama most certainly has a dominant though closeted homosexual predisposition, the ultimate expression of his unmitigated narcissism.
This psychological profile would surprise only those who are blinded, either by their cultish devotion to Obama or their shared pathology.
Attempting to explain his rationale, Obama said, "[Michelle and I] are both practicing Christians and ... you know, when we think about our faith, the thing at root that we think about is not only Christ sacrificing himself on our behalf, but it's also the Golden Rule, you know, treat others the way you would want to be treated. ... I was sensitive to the fact that for a lot of people, the word 'marriage' was something that evokes very powerful traditions, religious beliefs and so forth."
He continued, "But I have to tell you ... when I think about members of my own staff who are in incredibly committed monogamous same-sex relationships, who are raising kids together -- when I think about those soldiers or airmen or Marines or sailors who are out there fighting on my behalf, and yet feel constrained even now that 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' is gone because they're not able to commit themselves in a marriage ... it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same-sex couples should be able to get married."
Responding to his first rationale, I'd be negligent if I didn't challenge Obama's incredibly narcissistic assertion that "soldiers or airmen or Marines or sailors [are] fighting on my behalf," rather than correctly understanding that they are fighting in accordance with their solemn oaths to "support and defend" our Constitution. Obama, of course, has affirmed the same obligation by oath but has vigorously refused to honor it.
But the core problem with Obama's "golden rule" reasoning is that his "faith" as a "practicing Christian" was mentored by another pathological narcissist, Jeremiah Wright, with whom Obama identifies most closely as "a father figure." Wright inculcated Obama with the "Marxist social gospel of hate, the antithesis of genuine Christianity. Thus, Obama's understanding of Christianity assumes that Jesus was a socialist.
Moreover, as with all narcissists, the faith expression of Wright and Obama is self-centered -- nothing more than a manifestation shaped by their own deity.
Not only is Obama's faith deeply flawed in regard to homosexuality, but many people of authentic Christian upbringing are also confused about this issue. For a brief but comprehensive perspective on how Christians should respond to the notion of "gay marriage," read Gender Identity, The Homosexual Agenda and The Christian Response.
Regarding Obama's second and more important reason for announcing his support for the homosexual marriage agenda, Leftist Sen. Dick Durbin (D-ILL) concluded, "I don't think it was a political calculation. ... I think it was a matter of conscience." Of course, Durbin knows that this was both "a matter of conscience," as outlined previously, and "a political calculation."
The Obama campaign's internal polling numbers are not looking good, especially with the one group of voters who have represented more than half of all votes cast since 1960 -- women. The female vote will determine the victor in the 2012 presidential election.
Though a female majority elected Obama in 2008, the Democrats' gender advantage is declining. In the 2010 midterm elections, for the first time in recent history, a majority of women voted Republican. Given the estimate that women drive more than 60 percent of financial decisions in the home, Obama's dismal approval ratings on issues related to economic recovery may cost him the election. That is, unless he can regain a majority of women voters by diverting their focus to other issues -- especially what he sees as a "winning" issue among women, homosexual advocacy.
Thus, Obama's gay political play, at its core, cynically assumes that a majority of women are too stupid to rise above their emotive compassion for, and identity with, effeminate men -- like Obama. This assumption is the overarching political strategy behind Obama's announcement, and it is confirmed beyond reasonable doubt by Demo-gogue Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), who fallaciously insists that "there's no political calculus" behind Obama's gay marriage endorsement.
How important is the "stupid women" strategy to Obama's long-term political objective?
The transformation of our nation into a Socialist state is predicated on the success of Obama's effort to destabilize the three pillars of Essential Liberty: Constitutional Liberty, Economic Liberty and Individual Liberty.
The Obama administration has done more to undermine constitutional Liberty than any Leftist since Woodrow Wilson.
As for the third pillar, Obama knows that the most effective method of undermining Individual Liberty is to erode the integrity of faith and family. To the degree that our nation's faith foundation is undermined, the principle that Liberty is "endowed by our Creator" is enfeebled. To the extent that the "Laws of Nature and of Nature's God" are abjectly violated by redefining marriage, which in turn upends the basic building block of a free society, the family, the consequence is the decay of individual Liberty.
The notion that marriage and family are the foundation of society is older than Christ's teaching on the subject. In the words of Marcus Tullius Cicero (circa 50 B.C.), "[T]he first principle of society consists in the marriage tie, the next in children, the next in a family within one roof, where everything is in common. This society gives rise to the city, and is, as it were, the nursery of the commonwealth."
The bottom line for Obama and his Leftist cadres: Female voters will determine the outcome of the 2012 presidential election. Beyond all the topical rhetoric about redefining marriage, if Obama is correct in his calculation that a majority of women voters can be distracted from critical issues like Liberty and economy, his gambit on the gay political play will be a winner. Don't take that bet.

I have been one of those concerned conservatives who try to anticipate the unexpected tactics of our would-be Muslim Dictator in Chief. In my previous analysis’s I equated Barack Hussein Obama to a cornered rat who would do anything to stay in power. When Obama authorized the killing of Muslim leaders in al-Qaida I stated it was more for publicity than anything else. When I anticipated what Obama would do if his popularity declined and his reelection became in doubt, I suggested that he would support and encourage the Occupy protesters up to the point of them causing widespread civil unrest and then Obama would declare Martial Law and use the public safety as a reason to postpone the November elections.
Now, WND.com has an exclusive commentary by Barry Farber who seems to doubt that Barack Hussein Obama would do such a nasty thing. Farber does mention a few more reasons why Obama should be booted out of Washington but he still does not agree that Martial Law will be or would be invoked.
Will Obama impose martial law?
Exclusive: Barry Farber offers take on theory prez has plans to repress Americans
My inbox seems more and more aflame with articles quoting un-named insiders warning Americans that the Obama administration is secretly-but-ardently preparing for “organized disorder” intended to warrant the imposition of martial law so the presidential election can be canceled and Obama can continue to rule “indefinitely”! Details seem to be amazingly abundant. The deliberate violence will be just bad enough, you see, to make the American people grateful for the martial law. And the government is allegedly stockpiling everything needed to build and maintain “concentration camps.” And on applications for the military they’re now asking questions like, “Would you forcibly take guns from your fellow Americans?” Also, “Would you kill them?”
At this point I should emphasize I’m as opposed to this administration as I can arrange to get, but I’m totally unconvinced by all such talk. In fact, if brain scientists are looking for a real “complacent” to study – one who actually says, “It can’t happen here!” – I’m their man, provided it pays at least as much as jury duty.
Further down in his comments, Mr. Farber says: “will American troops nonetheless conclude, “Gee, I guess it’s time for us to go kill our own people to save the country”?” This innocuous statement sounds similar to The Oath Keepers who are appealing to law enforcement people to abide by their sworn oaths to uphold the Constitution and refuse orders to arrest or harm innocent civilians or confiscate their guns. Just how in hell is a cop going to know that his orders are unconstitutional or that any civilian was innocent when he was told otherwise by his superiors. How are the National Guard troops going to know they should not follow orders if they are mobilized to confront rioting Occupy forces. And whether they did or did not follow orders has nothing to do with the imposition of Martial Law. And what if there was a possibility that law enforcement people or military people would not follow orders? Did anyone ever consider that Obama could go to the United Nations and declare a national emergency and ask for a U.N. Peace Keeping force be sent to American soil? I am certain those troops from Uganda or the Congo would have no compulsions against killing American civilians.
Any government that would authorize the construction of civilian detainment centers (i.e. concentration camps) or ask for an amendment to the NDAA National Defense Authorization Act to allow the arrest and imprisonment without trial of any American who the government has determined was a threat is certainly capable of doing anything it wants to remain in power. The power that the government has already acquired in the Patriot Act and the above mentioned issues can be used against anyone they choose to use it against, whether it be genuine Islamic terrorists or right-wing conservatives. And do not forget, the Obama Dept. of Homeland Security has already defined whom it considers to be a potential threat.
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.
As I wrote on Feb. 13, 2010 in this blog: You have probably heard about Dept. of Homeland Security’s controversial document that was published in 2009. It was one of the first things Obama had his DHS do. It is called (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 another document called (U//FOUO) Domestic Extremism Lexicon, that described the definitions it was using. It is available here: http://www.tdbimg.com/files/2009/04/30/-hsra-domestic-extremism-lexicon_165213935473.pdfThe 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. 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 terroristsThe only question that remains is who is going to fire the first shot. Maybe we need to study the history of our first American Revolution and read about Lexington and Concord to find the answer.
"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. 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 right wing extremist from owning a firearm.My name is Nelson Abdullah and I am Old Ironsides.
Fox News reported a story this morning about next week's issue of Newsweek magazine. By some accidental quirk did Newsweek let the cat out of the bag when they called Barack Hussein Obama, 'The First Gay President'? Fox News ran their story with this headline:
President Obama and his chief of staff Rahm Emanuel are lifetime members of the same gay bath house in uptown Chicago, according to informed sources in Chicago’s gay community, as well as veteran political sources in the city.
The bath house, Man’s Country, caters to older white men and it has been in business for some 30 years and is known as one of uptown Chicago’s “grand old bathhouses.” WMR was told by sources who are familiar with the bath house that it provides one-year “lifetime” memberships to paying customers and that the club’s computerized files and pre-computer paper files, include membership information for both Obama and Emanuel. The data is as anonymized as possible for confidentiality purposes. However, sources close to “Man’s Country” believe the U.S. Secret Service has purged the computer and filing cabinet files of the membership data on Obama and Emanuel.
Members of Man’s Country are also issued club identification cards. WMR learned that Obama and Emanuel possessed the ID cards, which were required for entry.
Obama began frequenting Man’s Country in the mid-1990s, during the time he transitioned from a lecturer at the University of Chicago Law School to his election as an Illinois State Senator in 1996. Emanuel, reportedly joined Man’s Country after he left the Clinton White Hosue and moved back to Chicago in 1998, joining the investment firm of Wasserstein Perella and maintaining his membership during his 2002 campaign for the U.S. 5th District House seat vacated by Rod Blagojevich, who was elected governor.
Man’s Country appears to be a “one stop shopping” center for gay men. The club’s website advertises steam rooms, “fantasy rooms,” bed rooms, male strippers, adult movies, and lockers.
However, Man’s Country was not the only location for Obama’s predatory gay sex activities. The Chicago gay community is aware that Obama often made contacts with younger men at his famous “pick-up basketball” games. It was at these “pick up” matches where Obama first met Emanuel and a young Democratic campaign worker and senior bank vice president named Alexi Giannoulias. Currently running for Obama’s old U.S. Senate seat now occupied by Roland Burris, Giannoulias successfully ran for Illinois Treasurer in 2006 after being drafted for the run by Chicago’s Democratic machine.
When you have a person like Barack Hussein Obama, who habitually hides his entire background, you cannot help but think there is some sinister reason behind it. We now know that Barry Soetoro//aka//Barack Hussein Obama publicly displayed on national television a forged Birth Certificate in April 2011. We now know he had a fake Selective Service Registration Card and has a Social Security Number previously issued in Connecticut to another person. We also know Obama was registered in school in Indonesia as a Muslim yet he claims he is a Christian for no other reason that he attended the radical racist Trinity United Church of Christ run by the equally racist, anti-American, Rev. Jeremiah Wright. And now there is even someone who suspects that Barack Hussein Obama was the son of a black Communist named Frank Marshall Davis and not Keyan-born Barack Obama. Sr., whose name appears on Barry's fake birth certificate. As WND.com reported last month about a full-length documentary film scheduled for release in July titled: “Dreams from My Real Father: A Story of Reds and Deception,” made by Joel Gilbert. Read the "WND EXCLUSIVE: Film: President's father not Barack Obama 2 years of research, rare photos support compelling case Published: 04/25/2012 at 8:51 PM"Remember that problem that Joe Biden has with not being able to control what comes out of his mouth? Maybe it is an infectious disease and it's very possible that Newsweek may have caught it.
